Architecture firm that potentially designed building(s) in the compound, refers to it as the "Neal Sanctuary": http://grummelengineering.com/RESIDENTIAL.html
Had $260,000 in annual revenue: http://companies.findthecompany.com/l/1942178/Oculus-Inc-in-Damascus-OR
>could just be a shitty website though
>There are, according to the White Pages and multiple other similar website, five people said to be living at our 17700 SE Forest Hill Dr, Damascus, OR 97089 address. Their names are Anthony Neal (referenced in the architecture site), Sharon Neal, Greg Neal, Natalia Neal and Dean Neal.
>Dean and Sharon are 65+ years of age, Greg 50-54 and Natalia and Anthony between the ages of 35-39. Perhaps Dean and Sharon are parents to Anthony, Natalia being his wife or sister. Greg being in an odd age range for this match, potentially another child if Dean/Sharon are substantially older. Also, the fact that their residence is referred to as the 'Neal Sanctuary' seems a bit strange to me.
>"Yeah /pol/ actually cracked the case yesterday, just some new age spiritualist that were using a church to dodge taxes. The "complex" is actually just a large botanical garden with caves that work like greenhouses."

Chapter 1: Spirit’s Missing Time
Last January I was at JPL on a project when a colleague of mine in the unrelated MER program was working a Spirit glitch. Spirit is one of the two rovers still operating on Mars. Spirit’s expected mission was for a little over 90 days long, but six years later the rover is still operating. Spirit has performed well beyond expectations, but even the best robot is going to have its off days. One of these off days was in late January 2009. My friend and colleague, who I’ll call Rich, was a senior software engineer on the team tasked with maintaining the mobility flight software, the code that controlled the rover’s movements and experiments.
Spirit had refused an instruction. It had been sent instructions to move, it acknowledged receipt of those instructions, but it did not move. In and of itself that was not highly unusual, the rover is given license to ignore move requests it does not believe it can fulfill successfully or safely. But not only did Spirit not move, its non-volatile flash memory was missing data about its motionless hours. Through a separate subsystem they were able to estimate that it had been awake for at least an hour during the gap, but what it had been doing or why it had decided not to move was unknown. Imaging before and after the event showed no change, cameras, IDD, suspension values, terrain; all were the same. This was the mystery my colleague and his team were engaged in solving. Why did the rover ignore its command to move? Why did the rover record nothing? Presumably the one question would answer the other.

I wanna do magick and shit. Sorcery, wizardry, arcane, divine, enchanting, alchemy - whatever the fuck you call it.
How do I do it? I want to make the Philosopher's Stone but I don't think it involves distilling your own piss, there's gotta be like a... magick way or whatever. I don't mind if it involves blood.
Someone halp me.
Pic related I guess.
