Give Matt a Tip:

Quantum of Conscience

For those who can see what most cannot

Send Matt a One Time Tip or Monthly

This was not the “regularly scheduled topic” for today’s video on FreeVoice.io I saw this story featured on CBS Sunday Morning and there was so much I wanted to talk about. Apparently they have been trying to build an ancient castle for 27 years and they are still working on it, trying to replicate ancient building techniques using stone and lime. Of course, the CBS reporter conducting the interview doesn’t ask or report on who has been paying for this massive project for over a quarter century!

In the interview scene where the guy makes the handsign of a heart, I believe what is possibly even more sketchy is the fact that at the 21:27 mark, they are both holding one finger in the other hand. She is holding the pinky, which the T-vestigators would say means she has an appendage we wouldn’t think she has, and he is holding his middle finger–just noteworthy imo.

And I would like to add one thing that struck me: the person on-site who does plant medicine activities makes me think about something I have been learning about lately, which is that the use of mind-altering plants in the ancient mysteries and even the Bible has been so occulted. This is no doubt a part of the activities of those involved in this project.

One of the most painful things I watched in weeks. Not due to your commentary but the source video… this is consciousness so cemented into a false reality they adore it.

Or for the so called leaders of the project, they want you to be so enthralled in their story you are cemented into this nonsense.

It’s all They/IT can do, can’t come up with anything original or new, or even ordinary at that. Hahah, even A.I. can’t make New … just a mix of the crappy ingredients They/IT Program, kinda like going to Taco bell hehehe……… 150 menu items, all made outta 5 or 6 of the same exact example ingredients, just arranged in different ways to fool YOU. Keep it real Bill brother man. Much love n respects!!!.

Hi Bill, would you be so kind as to ask Matt to get back to me regarding the freevoice.io monthly donation I must discontinue? Or, if you know how I can do so on this website I would appreciate it. Nothing is working and I just cannot seem to get in touch with Matt. Thanks so much.

Great video—I had no idea concrete was such a planet-unfriendly concoction.

REQUEST: Even being one of the Old Guard, I’d love a list of hobo-codes for reference; I’ve been trying to compile one of my own, but it’s stupid-slow going. I have to wait for one to crop up, remember that I’m looking for them, and then jot it down….

Love to all of my fellow classmates both near and far! ❤️

I like how they never explain how it was initially funded, I can’t imagine people were paying to go there until it was nearly fully built. Very fishy.

Totally bizarre and the repeating scripts were painful to keep hearing. Like okay, you’re building a Castle (Okay, nobody talks about funding) but…not okay, you’re down a the freaking quarry cutting stones with hammers instead of power tools there, give me a break, what a complete waste of time / energy and money. I’m sure their homeless really get a kick out of this liberal fantasy.

One more thing: 300k visitors per year is approximately 822 people PER DAY.

Living in st ouis, i get to see dozens, if not hundreds of old style buildings. I want to see one of these puritans chisel a radius on a granite block with hand tools. And then make a 60ft tall tower out of thousands of these blocks. And have it perfectly level.

What s larp. I found the premise for timeline to be pure bullshit also, if I remember correctly, they go back in time to find out how to build a historically accurate Renaissance fair. Really? Not to buy Winnebago stock for a dollar?

I thought hipsters mortgaging their house to start a candle shop was ridiculous, but they only have to sell 3 million dollars worth of organic beeswax candles a year to cover that.

This construction story seemingly doesn’t make any sense. A couple of unemployed people is unable to finish building this castle for 27 years. These few (rather not) paying visitors are watching this process from a distance (of course nobody wants to be endangered by entering the construction site where a falling stone could kill them). 300k visitors a year? Obvious BS. Preparing lime in a woven basket, hahaha. WTF? It’s just weird…

Unless the video has a subliminal message for everybody out there: “Don’t even think about building a castle for your family. You will never get it done. It’s a pain in the ass. It’s only for unemployed weirdos and losers.”

You’ll own nothing and be happy.

I’m sure this story is not unknown:
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-surrey-34585555

It only proves that one man can do a lot in a relatively short period of time if he decides to.

I remember the first German video about this project a long time ago (10 to 15 years ago). I can’t remember if anyone said anything about the funding, so I searched in English and found this on npr:

Preston said they initially financed their work through donations and some European Union funding. Now the château is financed through more than 300,000 visitors a year (paying between 12 and 15 euros each), which she said generates about 5 million euros ($5.25 million) a year that largely covers pay for 100 staff members.

Maybe the building is actually1200 or whatever years old, and they are just doing superficial additions? Looks much, much older than 27 years to me!

Hi Matt, can you please help me get out of the $5 dollar a month donation setting I’m stuck in? I don’t want to file a dispute with the bank, I just need to discontinue it. There is no option on Freevoice to do so. It just loads and loads more videos if I try to scroll down and find a link. PLEASE HELP.
