The Initiates of Time do not have an organized hierarchy. You could ask them, but I doubt it's worth knowing their lame opinions. Try being a Timewaiter.


Sorry, I think I had to visit the Outside when Timewaiters became the accepted term, so my mind still fills in the blank with Initiate!


You can be initiated into the Time Waiters. Close enough :D

Ah, but I quantify the passage of Time in NewPix still, apparently disqualifying me from the Timewaiters group, per your above-posted documentation.
I would like to request that anyone currently doing whatever and posting a large (or even medium) number/volume of responses in a singe post should

Also the pope page in the wiki is really lacking information, I think is time for us to get to know better helper the first, like what are his dreams at night, how many sugar cubes per coffee cup? semeneated or unsemeneated coffee? a giant duck or 100 duck sized horses? you know all the important stuff to complete the wiki page.

Let's see...
Dreams at night: throwing china at loonies and watching said loonies sufffering bipolar breakdowns.
0 sugar cube is semenated coffe, obviously.
A giant duck. Or a hundred duck-sized ducks.


ok this is as much as I will vandalize add to the wiki today. but when my outside duties are done i will be back, even if, heaven forbids, times stops.

There is an error on the Pope's page - he* said 100 duck-sized DUCKS, not horses.

No offense Tttaken. :D

What is the preferred standard terminology when converting Timeframes to metric Longpix? Basically we need to make up another clever word to represent the time warp changes that affected the TimeFrame intervals in outsider time.


Long time ago I suggested vpx /nju:pix/ (first letter being Greek ny) for the "physical appearance" of a newpix. Definition of vpx/min, average vpx/day (with min and day being some strange Outside time units) would be easily done. In the Beginning, we experienced 1 vpx/newpix, then it dropped to 0.5 vpx/newpix, creating the need for longpix as new calibration target for gauging.

Would this help?

However, if we'd dig into newpix as a measurement of time (no capital T) and tie it to the events, we would let Time bending time and risking knots in our brains.
Yeah, a Cardinal statement would be appreciated*.

*Apostolic Visitators are known for their questions, not answers.


The only valid measurement of Time is by TimeFrame (or "newpix" as the Unorthodox Eastern Timewaiter heretics call it). There is no time, only Time. Some poor souls feel it necessary to map outsider time onto true Time. But a TimeFrame is a TimeFrame is a TimeFrame. Sometimes our imperfect, outsider-born bodies subjectively experience the Waiting as lasting longer now that it used to. This thinking is heretical, and may possibly require exorcism (I know a good exorcist).

Since you ask about "conversion," you obviously need a good beating. However, the name of that subjective experience of longer Waiting periods is an actual phenomenon of the Weak of Faith, and although I am immune to it, it is agreed that We must have a word for it. My understanding of this phenomenon is that the longer the subjective experience of The Wait is, the level of anxiety and discontent rises. I thus propose we call it Menopause.

Example
Weak One: There is now an "hour" between each TimeFrame.
buffygirl: My child, you are experiencing Menopause, a dangerous state of being. Repent!

You could join the eastern unorthodox, but you then have to use the old term 'newpix' and call yourself a TimeWaiter, though that combination is heresy to these western youngsters.

Excellent. Deranged minds think alike. Get busy, then; looks like you've got work to do.

The CDT presents:
Faith FAQ!
Q: What was before Time?
A: Nothing was before Time. Time always was and always will be.
Q: Who or what created Time?
A: Time itself created itself. The name we give to the Creator aspect of Time is Lord Randall.
Q: How do Time affect our lives?
A: Time decided to reveal itself through the One True Comic, created by Lord Randall. The One True Comic always was and it is Time, and as Time it must be worshipped. The One True Comic is both in Newpixia and in the Outside, to help the ones deceived by the Hat.
Q: If Time always existed, why do I remember things before it?
A: In Truth, what you remember is only an illusion. After the creation of Time, Lord Randall created the Hat as his servant. But the Hat became envious of the power reserved to the One True Comic and declared war to it. Time banished the Hat from Newpixia and it is now doomed to live in the Outside where he tries to deceive the faithfuls.
Disclaimer: not all hats are evil
Q: How do you protect yourself from the Hat?
A: You have to burn it and after that purify yourself by drinking blessed baby-free semenated coffe. Beware, because even the strongest can be tricked by the Hat (e.g. our Arch-Cardinal)
Q: What are Newpixia and the Outside?
A: Newpixia is the place where Time resides, we all belong to Newpixia but we have to remain in the Outside until the Hat won't be destroyed.
Q: What is a Frame?
A: A Frame is a Revelation from Time through the One True Comic. Lord Randall draws every Frame for us to venerate. If you miss a Frame, you have to look it from a holy archive as soon as possible.
Q: How do I know when a Frame will come?
A: Time created the Ancestral DONG to warn us of and incoming Revelation, but the screams of the Hat can cover its holy sound. Only the most faithful can hear it over the Hat's lament. If you're not yet ready to listen directly to the Ancestral DONG, two Web-based DONG have been created: http://www.webcountdown.de/?a=gxMXfoy and http://www.webcountdown.net/?a=v2WZqAO&k=H68Q; beware, in its gigantic evilness the Hat has sped up the outsider "time", making the first Web-based DONG useless.
Q: How should I worship Time?
A: Avoid sleep because you will miss Frames, coma instead. Reject the Outside, because it is the Reign of the Hat. Drink coffee everyday, but don't add babies to it; if you want, you can drink it with semen, but only of virgins. Don't assume that the Timewaiter you're talking about is a male, use a gender-neutral pronoun instead; you shouldn't assume anything actually. And most of all, "Wait for it.".
Q: How can I learn more about the Timewaiters?
A: The Holy Scriptures will help you.
Note: the Holy Scriptures are shared with other religions, some of which are heretic.
Q: ???
A: !!!
Q: Can you prove all these things?
A: Of course I can, it's a shame you will be burned as a heretic before you can hear the answer.
Q: Who gives you all this authority?
A: Burn the heretic!
Q: I think that...
A: Heretic! Heretic! Heretic!


I say you can't prove these things. I also have a definite suspicion you can't begin to burn hard enough to hurt me. Your move. :twisted:


*pokes buffygirl and whoever else happens to be on* Never did see a reply to this... the comfy chair, perhaps? :P

Although as a fire-based being I would probably just scorch it into sand... or coffee grounds.

The ants may be useless, but the honey will prevent you from breathing. Thus you will die of asphyxia, raise and then die again, until the end of Time. If that doesn't work, your fire will be extinguished with blessed baby-free semenated coffee.

There would be no confusion. TimeWaiters are servers who work at the restaurant Milliways, located conveniently at the end of the universe.

Excuse me! I am the Prefect of the Congregatio pro Doctrina Temporis (check the wiki and this), we don't need to create one.

Excellent. Deranged minds think alike. Get busy, then; looks like you've got work to do.

The CDT presents:
Faith FAQ!
Q: What was before Time?
A: Nothing was before Time. Time always was and always will be.
Q: Who or what created Time?
A: Time itself created itself. The name we give to the Creator aspect of Time is Lord Randall.
Q: How do Time affect our lives?
A: Time decided to reveal itself through the One True Comic, created by Lord Randall. The One True Comic always was and it is Time, and as Time it must be worshipped. The One True Comic is both in Newpixia and in the Outside, to help the ones deceived by the Hat.
Q: If Time always existed, why do I remember things before it?
A: In Truth, what you remember is only an illusion. After the creation of Time, Lord Randall created the Hat as his servant. But the Hat became envious of the power reserved to the One True Comic and declared war to it. Time banished the Hat from Newpixia and it is now doomed to live in the Outside where he tries to deceive the faithfuls.
Disclaimer: not all hats are evil
Q: How do you protect yourself from the Hat?
A: You have to burn it and after that purify yourself by drinking blessed baby-free semenated coffe. Beware, because even the strongest can be tricked by the Hat (e.g. our Arch-Cardinal)
Q: What are Newpixia and the Outside?
A: Newpixia is the place where Time resides, we all belong to Newpixia but we have to remain in the Outside until the Hat won't be destroyed.
Q: What is a Frame?
A: A Frame is a Revelation from Time through the One True Comic. Lord Randall draws every Frame for us to venerate. If you miss a Frame, you have to look it from a holy archive as soon as possible.
Q: How do I know when a Frame will come?
A: Time created the Ancestral DONG to warn us of and incoming Revelation, but the screams of the Hat can cover its holy sound. Only the most faithful can hear it over the Hat's lament. If you're not yet ready to listen directly to the Ancestral DONG, two Web-based DONG have been created: http://www.webcountdown.de/?a=gxMXfoy and http://www.webcountdown.net/?a=v2WZqAO&k=H68Q; beware, in its gigantic evilness the Hat has sped up the outsider "time", making the first Web-based DONG useless.
Q: How should I worship Time?
A: Avoid sleep because you will miss Frames, coma instead. Reject the Outside, because it is the Reign of the Hat. Drink coffee everyday, but don't add babies to it; if you want, you can drink it with semen, but only of virgins. Don't assume that the Timewaiter you're talking about is a male, use a gender-neutral pronoun instead; you shouldn't assume anything actually. And most of all, "Wait for it.".
Q: How can I learn more about the Timewaiters?
A: The Holy Scriptures will help you.
Note: the Holy Scriptures are shared with other religions, some of which are heretic.
Q: ???
A: !!!
Q: Can you prove all these things?
A: Of course I can, it's a shame you will be burned as a heretic before you can hear the answer.
Q: Who gives you all this authority?
A: Burn the heretic!
Q: I think that...
A: Heretic! Heretic! Heretic!


I say you can't prove these things. I also have a definite suspicion you can't begin to burn hard enough to hurt me. Your move. :twisted:


*pokes buffygirl and whoever else happens to be on* Never did see a reply to this... the comfy chair, perhaps? :P

Although as a fire-based being I would probably just scorch it into sand... or coffee grounds.

Luckily, another Cardinal found a new form of punishment:
bigcrag92 wrote:[the stuck down is our new form of punishment. you get stuck onto a sheet, covered in honey, and have ants released upon you...


Question is, how much fire can an ant withstand before dying? Sounds like a good candidate for a what-if, although for immediate purposes I don't think it's long enough to bother me.

The ants may be useless, but the honey will prevent you from breathing. Thus you will die of asphyxia, raise and then die again, until the end of Time. If that doesn't work, your fire will be extinguished with blessed baby-free semenated coffee.


Gonna take a lot of honey... also I imagine it'll decay over Time until eventually there's not enough to suffocate me anymore. You're welcome to try the coffee and see what happens though!

The -ette suffix, along with -ess, -tress, -trix, etc., are used to denote the female equivalent of the [noun] in question. The implication being that girls/women/females aren't supposed to normally be considered as that [noun]. Which I can understand could be construed to be an offensive stance. So you're better off accepting your dudeness as an equal member of our sexist society, dudette. ;)

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think I shall stay with my newpix and longpix. None of your newfangled phraseology. I shall not bow down to mere current fads and popularity. There is a truth beyond the popular consensus, a greater truth of Time.
I would like to request that anyone currently doing whatever and posting a large (or even medium) number/volume of responses in a singe post should
Spoiler:
spoiler them.
Thank you.

Thank you. My super-powers allowed me to save all but the AionArap-Red Hat.


Understandable, it was way too hot for you anyway.

Really, you want spoiler tags for something that came out 45 years ago3.

Do we have to align our speculations about the things Randall may have intended to say with the comic? Maybe #1190 was nothing but an infrastructural test run for April 1st? Or do we have to evaluate both comics in another context: How many resources (#1190: human resources, #1193: human resources and, of course, a great deal of CPU time, clima etc.) can a single man burn down for next to nothing?

Don't forget Wikipedia editors' time, for #1193.

Because, as we know, Wikipedia editors aren't human.1

*sigh* fine

I Bigcrag92 being of soundish mind yada yada yada do ratify the cardinalship of udscbt nominated by buffygirl. may I and buffygirl be stuck down if we have erred in this decision. by the power vested in me I now name you Cardinal peanut butter and jelly sandwich udscbt. arise my brethren


Guess this means both you and buffygirl need to be "stuck down", as your previous attempt at ratification was clearly erroneous.

The attempt was erroneous, but the decision was not, hence they do not need to be stuck down.

iAnd now you're trapped for all Time!

The Initiates of Time do not have an organized hierarchy. You could ask them, but I doubt it's worth knowing their lame opinions. Try being a Timewaiter.


Sorry, I think I had to visit the Outside when Timewaiters became the accepted term, so my mind still fills in the blank with Initiate!


You can be initiated into the Time Waiters. Close enough :D

EDIT...
Holy scriptures:

Ah, but I quantify the passage of Time in NewPix still, apparently disqualifying me from the Timewaiters group, per your above-posted documentation.


*sighs* Yet another wandering Lost Soul. My child, you are experiencing Menopause. Turn away from the Newpix!

Excuse me! I am the Prefect of the Congregatio pro Doctrina Temporis (check the wiki and this), we don't need to create one.

Excellent. Deranged minds think alike. Get busy, then; looks like you've got work to do.

The CDT presents:
Faith FAQ!
Q: What was before Time?
A: Nothing was before Time. Time always was and always will be.
Q: Who or what created Time?
A: Time itself created itself. The name we give to the Creator aspect of Time is Lord Randall.
Q: How do Time affect our lives?
A: Time decided to reveal itself through the One True Comic, created by Lord Randall. The One True Comic always was and it is Time, and as Time it must be worshipped. The One True Comic is both in Newpixia and in the Outside, to help the ones deceived by the Hat.
Q: If Time always existed, why do I remember things before it?
A: In Truth, what you remember is only an illusion. After the creation of Time, Lord Randall created the Hat as his servant. But the Hat became envious of the power reserved to the One True Comic and declared war to it. Time banished the Hat from Newpixia and it is now doomed to live in the Outside where he tries to deceive the faithfuls.
Disclaimer: not all hats are evil
Q: How do you protect yourself from the Hat?
A: You have to burn it and after that purify yourself by drinking blessed baby-free semenated coffe. Beware, because even the strongest can be tricked by the Hat (e.g. our Arch-Cardinal)
Q: What are Newpixia and the Outside?
A: Newpixia is the place where Time resides, we all belong to Newpixia but we have to remain in the Outside until the Hat won't be destroyed.
Q: What is a Frame?
A: A Frame is a Revelation from Time through the One True Comic. Lord Randall draws every Frame for us to venerate. If you miss a Frame, you have to look it from a holy archive as soon as possible.
Q: How do I know when a Frame will come?
A: Time created the Ancestral DONG to warn us of and incoming Revelation, but the screams of the Hat can cover its holy sound. Only the most faithful can hear it over the Hat's lament. If you're not yet ready to listen directly to the Ancestral DONG, two Web-based DONG have been created: http://www.webcountdown.de/?a=gxMXfoy and http://www.webcountdown.net/?a=v2WZqAO&k=H68Q; beware, in its gigantic evilness the Hat has sped up the outsider "time", making the first Web-based DONG useless.
Q: How should I worship Time?
A: Avoid sleep because you will miss Frames, coma instead. Reject the Outside, because it is the Reign of the Hat. Drink coffee everyday, but don't add babies to it; if you want, you can drink it with semen, but only of virgins. Don't assume that the Timewaiter you're talking about is a male, use a gender-neutral pronoun instead; you shouldn't assume anything actually. And most of all, "Wait for it.".
Q: How can I learn more about the Timewaiters?
A: The Holy Scriptures will help you.
Note: the Holy Scriptures are shared with other religions, some of which are heretic.
Q: ???
A: !!!
Q: Can you prove all these things?
A: Of course I can, it's a shame you will be burned as a heretic before you can hear the answer.
Q: Who gives you all this authority?
A: Burn the heretic!
Q: I think that...
A: Heretic! Heretic! Heretic!


I say you can't prove these things. I also have a definite suspicion you can't begin to burn hard enough to hurt me. Your move. :twisted:


*pokes buffygirl and whoever else happens to be on* Never did see a reply to this... the comfy chair, perhaps? :P

Although as a fire-based being I would probably just scorch it into sand... or coffee grounds.

Luckily, another Cardinal found a new form of punishment:
bigcrag92 wrote:[the stuck down is our new form of punishment. you get stuck onto a sheet, covered in honey, and have ants released upon you...


Question is, how much fire can an ant withstand before dying? Sounds like a good candidate for a what-if, although for immediate purposes I don't think it's long enough to bother me.

The ants may be useless, but the honey will prevent you from breathing. Thus you will die of asphyxia, raise and then die again, until the end of Time. If that doesn't work, your fire will be extinguished with blessed baby-free semenated coffee.


Gonna take a lot of honey... also I imagine it'll decay over Time until eventually there's not enough to suffocate me anymore. You're welcome to try the coffee and see what happens though!

*throws cup of coffee to PhoenixRising*


Hmm. I think it gave me cancer. But no matter, the fire of the phoenix will triumph over these miserable cell-things!
