Welcome

This blog collects all of my research on Dr. Devra Bogdanovich as well as becoming a way to tell her story. You can check the What is this page for an overview of the project, or browse through the Bio and Career pages to learn about Dr. Bogdanovich's work and life. The main part of the blog will serve as a journal of my journey to document my research and to pay homage to a distinguished scientist.

Ingress Prime and Devra talks with P.A. Chapeau at the #EXO5 Finale

So, Ingress Prime is coming and this means a reboot/change/something for the lore surrounding Niantic - from the article,

"The launch of Ingress Prime in 2018 will kick off a massive new story arc, beginning a brand new narrative for Agents worldwide. While the global game board will reset as part of the new storyline, current Agents will retain all of their current in-game progression, level and items in Ingress Prime."  https://www.nianticlabs.com/press/2017/ingressprime/ 

I've been remiss in tracking Devra's movements - but her last known position was a visit with P.A. Chapeau discussing Epiphany Night and a back door to ADA - https://plus.google.com/+Ingress/posts/Q511cKS1PP7


Transcript:

PA: Devra, did you find out what I did.

Devra: Yes I found out what you did. You opened ADA's back door.

PA: Calvin asked me to do (interrupted by Devra)

Devra: (very loud and forceful) Calvin asked you to open ADA's back door?

PA: Yes, yes. I trusted Calvin.You trusted Calvin. We all did.

Devra: Did you know I was almost assassinated that night?

PA: Please forgive me.

Devra: Roland Jarvis was assassinated that night with some unknown lady and that was supposed to be me. Are you telling me that you're responsible for that?

PA: I don't know. (whispered) I don't know.

Devra: Was Calvin in control of ADA?

PA: I don't know.

Reunion??

A couple of chat logs from a "reunion" of the main Niantic Sensitives was leaked...  (http://investigate.ingress.com/2017/02/11/reunion-1/ and http://investigate.ingress.com/2017/02/11/reunion-2/ )

Where does this leave them?

Reunion 1

lightman joined the conversation.
nagassa joined the conversation.
Victor joined the conversation.
CC joined the conversation.
lightmanWe all in?
MartinSchubert
I count 10– no Jarvis… no ADA and no Oliver.
Calvin
Thank you for joining this chat. I suppose by now you’ve all read my letter.
MartinSchubert
yeah
nagassa
I’ve come to terms with it, Calvin.
Victor
As have I. I agree that at this point our greatest resource is each other.
lightman
I suspect I speak for most of us when I say that our circumstances are too bizarre, too outlandish…
nagassa
I think most of us are unsure if our state of limbo is a gift or a curse.
Victor
I feel much the same — as if I’m preparing to be vaulted into the future — an unexpected life path.
nagassa
knowing what is coming, one can prepare.
Hank
Changes your relationship to your journal, for sure.
CC
Yes.
DevraB
Sorry to rush past the pleasantries, but to the topic at hand? What meaning do you ascribe to the Shards bearing our images? I half expected to disappear. I was preparing for the worst… again, I guess…
Hank
No. Our personas are safe.
MartinSchubert
Easy for you to say — you’re not a simulacrum anymore.
Hank
Fair point.
Calvin
My best understanding is that the Shards only have to do with the composition of the MAGNUS — our connections to the Archetypes.
Hank
A MAGNUS lives and changes. Those who assemble our shards determine whether the MAGNUS remains and who remains in the MAGNUS.
DevraB
Do we die if we leave the MAGNUS?
MartinSchubert
Unknown.
Hank
Yeah. The sources are silent on that, but it seems that some of the members of the Vesuvian MAGNUS lived after the debacle with the shield and what I presume was the destruction of their attempt to build a Tecthulhu.
DevraB
So these Shards only affect the bonds that tie us to the MAGNUS?
Hank
I think so. Not sure if the fact that we’re a disharmonious MAGNUS is what made it possible for our bonds to be disrupted this way.
DevraB
Were we that disharmonious?
Calvin
A different meaning. I was attempting to form a synthetic MAGNUS. What I did not know was that in a 13MAGNUS or an ANTI-MAGNUS all of the members are of the same alignment. We were of different alignments.
DevraB
So it was inevitably going to go bad?

Reunion 2

Here is the second fragment of the bizarre conversation I uncovered yesterday… Devra’s final question is one that I’ve pondered as well — what do the 3 empty chambers in the ABADN image mean?
The conversation between these mostly long-silent Niantic Researchers is below:
DevraB
So it was inevitably going to go bad?
Hank
Not all rifts are bad.
nagassa
It’s strange, I’m led to believe that I once knew all of you well, but many of you are utterly unfamiliar to me. Even though we seem to be divided, I feel we are as one.
MartinSchubert
Poetic wax aside, I agree we are all in the same boat.
Victor
Yes. I have done some scholarship, attempting to put things to gether from public sources.
MartinSchubert
Me too. Filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the HAZDATA records from Niantic.
CC
and?
MartinSchubert
Nothing. It appears that HAZDATA is an extra-legal entity and thus not under FOI jurisdiction.
Calvin
I could have told you that. Some rich entrepreneur from South Africa has been trying to acquire it. I will tell you more as I learn more. No other data right now.
Victor
You continue to retain your intelligence network?
Calvin
Informal relationships, mostly. I haven’t been fired, but I know I’ve been airgapped.
lightman
What about ADA?
Victor
From what I can tell, she has changed significantly over the last few years… But I don’t know. I would have expected her to join us.
lightman
Maybe she in not able to? She has been heard of little recently, and what we have heard seems strange.
enoch
we’re all strange now. sometimes I ‘feel’ our times there. I feel as if i know you, and, in some way I do, but I can’t summon a single memory.
Victor
Despite their dubious origins, the Tycho and Hajra-Lee works do connect to the known fact.
MartinSchubert
Frankly, I believe they are accurate.
Victor
I would tend to agree.
MistyH
That’s gotta be the ultimate magic trick. Make an entire era of our lives disappear. But I’m with Enoch. Sometimes I have flashes of memory.
nagassa
I would beware of false memories. Your brain does not like the void and tends to fill it, much like the process of a dream.
MartinSchubert
I would have assumed that you, of all of us, would most believe the truth in dreams.
nagassa
Touché. I believe in cosmic consciousness and artificial memories. They are two halves of a coin.
DevraB
The ABADN image. What do you think the three empty chambers mean?


Devra's Dream

A while back, Devra shared a dream she had not long after she had returned and P. A. Chapeau had "saved her" from a "date".   One thought, are there verbal glyphs?

http://investigate.ingress.com/2016/09/17/devras-dream/

D3VRA’S N1GHTM4R3

Devra Bogdanovich just emerged from a period of silence following her appearance in Wroclaw. She made a post on Google+ (https://plus.google.com/+DevraBogdanovich/posts/EAbPZ1Awkrg#c6ea8vj2tsmh5ut7 ) sharing some thoughts on what she discovered while there.
It’s an interesting read, especially if you’ve been following the events of the past few days…
I am not missing or in any danger. Just… processing things.wru29rnkkmt120kd
Richard Loeb did a number of kind things for me that night when I was having dinner with the man who called himself ‘James.’ He extracted me from an NIA observation and sent me to Wroclaw on a mission that was only of benefit to me, although I wonder if this was what the NIA were after, and if so why?
He claims the New Wave Resistance told him about this, but how did they know? And why would they want ME to know? After having spent some time with him, I’m wondering if I’m starting to think like him… I have questions that remain unanswered for now, but one thing did become clear.
When I arrived in Poland it all came back. I had heard them. They were the N’zeer. They spoke in verbal Glyphs which I could unaccountably understand. I know that I had dreamed this before, as a teenager, but now I’m beginning to see that it may not have been a dream after all.



13 Archetypes - which is Devra

I have been MIA due to life - but hope to begin working once again on archiving materials connected to Devra Bpgdanovich.

P. A. Chapeau talks about the concept of 13 Archetypes connected to a Magnus -  http://investigate.ingress.com/2017/02/07/the-13-archetypes/


So the question becomes - which might Devra Represent?

Many think she may be the Humanist. Others have offered potential connections of the Niantic Sensitives to the Archetypes - http://investigate.ingress.com/2017/02/13/essex-investigator-sheds-light-on-the-13-archetypes/  and https://goo.gl/photos/coeF6a967wWMQt9n8  and https://plus.google.com/u/0/103911745057047659788/posts/iJqLszQN1ps

Devra's Memories

About 10 weeks ago a number of Devra's memories came through the portal network.



9 of the 13 memories were recovered (see https://plus.google.com/u/0/+TroisLiu/posts/S7zSYNE25Wp for a list of recovered memories and https://plus.google.com/u/0/+DevraBogdanovich/posts/FP8bZArttXP for a post from Devra.

I still wonder what the other memories might have been and how much that contributed to the current state Devra is in.  We have not heard from Devra in awhile.  As Obsidius and Cybella's journey continues to be revealed, is this a potential way memories could be recovered? Could those memories have been "witnessed" by travelers like Obsidius?  Could there be a way to recover what was loss?  Could simulacra and similar recover memories after they return?

If anyone recovered any of the missing memories, please leave a comment and picture of the memory.

Devra in Tainan

I have been quiet for a bit.  Some of this was due to the fact Devra was not heard from and has been very quiet.  Well, it seems the silence is broken.  Devra will be at the #AegisNova Tainan event on May 28, 2016


And I echo Dr. Wright's question, posed here, of what this means and what she might be doing.  I hope all is well and will continue to follow this researcher.


From Ingress Link

Our informants tell us that +Devra Bogdanovich will be making her first public appearance at an Anomaly since Interitus at #AegisNova Tainan. Dr. Bogdanovich was responsible for the Portal Virus that increased Portal Decay duing Helios and was one of the many people associated with the Niantic Project who recursed after Abaddon.

Her interest in Aegis Nova may be connected to the XM Drought, which bears some similarities to the effects of her Portal Virus. Perhaps her journey to Tainan will reveal her motives and more information. Devra's dossier card will also be available in Supporter Kits at the Manila anomaly.

Third Anniversary - Where is Devra Bogdanovich

It comes to the third anniversary of when the Ingress/NIantic Project scanner went into larger release. It has been an incredible three years.  At this point, the location and fate of Devra is unknown.



After her sharding, her shards were partially assembled, the Resistance gathering the largest number of pieces. The question of her being a simulacrum is current being explored. If she did die, when and where is her body?




She appeared to Hank a few times and he was going to hunt for Significant Portals attached to her, Paul School and perhaps other individuals, but not in a solid form. What might she be now?


The last mention at this point of Devra was by Paul School of a dream or perhaps contact from Devra.

What will the events of Abaddon bring for Devra?

Wandering

Paul School shared a potential vision, dream, communication he had concerning Devra.  Is she reaching out? Where is she wandering?  What door might she be trying to walk through, and who are her "friends"?  I hope the doctor is on a journey that leads her to a good place...



Paul School - https://plus.google.com/u/0/109763890472937053947/posts/MVMDQuXnJH2

I think this really happened...

I was in Big Sur over the weekend, deep in the woods. It was about 1:00pm. Devra walked up to me. She looked radiant. I tried to talk to her, but she wouldn't, or perhaps couldn't, express herself. She seemed discombobulated, confused. She spoke of the lost. The scattered.

She took my hand and led me to a clearing. I was surrounded there by beams of light. Dozens, at least. She looked at them, and I think I could read her lips as she mouthed the words 'my friends.' I looked back at the clearing, and I felt as though many more of 'her friends' had appeared. I wasn't wrong. More appeared, and then more still. A hundred, it seemed, there were so many.

Then, four doors opened all around us. No, there more than that, twice as many. Her 'friends' began to run toward the doors.

Devra looked at me. She seemed grateful.

Then, it was all gone. The clearing. Devra. Everything.

I was alone in Big Sur. I checked my watch. It was 1:15. Only fifteen minutes had passed, a single moment, but it had felt like hours.

What is happening to me? Am I losing my mind?
