Chest Breakdown And Analysis

Its quite unbelievable but if you watched the video documenting my recent search you will know what I have found already. I spent most of yesterday and today looking through the contents of the buried chest I found and I must say things aren’t looking positive at all.

The Journal

I shall start with the small black journal, immediately I was concerned by the exterior of the book. It has a small hand drawn skull in the centre of a beaten black cover but its the words, drawing and clipped newspaper articles that really scare me.

Above are two images of the journal, the picture to the right is just one example of the dialogue and the theme of this artefact. As you can see the ramblings on one of the pages is very gothic and almost psychedelic. I have transcribed a very important passage below from the journal that finally gives me some insight into the origins of this chest.

Transcribed journal entry – 02/03/1966

The day is upon us, after almost 8 years planning we are ready. 

Today is the evacuation / transportation day, 800 special citizens will be brought here by freight within the next 24 hours.

I’m a whole bag of old nerves, everything we have worked for, all the planning. But at the same time I’m even more excited. 

My work on construction projects has been vast and wide. This project is my most proud. 

As I write this journal log I feel even more confident to stay here on this glorious island. 


Alongside these log entries are newspaper articles from a publisher known as “Island Life”, the stories are very disturbing and talk of a strange disorder / illness that this sweeping over this island.

Chest Videotape

I managed to rip the videotape to my computer, I have posted it below. Again I am skeptical of its contents but I am finding it very hard to discredit with this amount of evidence building up.

The footage seems to be an amateur recording of some buildings which are completely abandoned and deserted. The ending is very strange, from watching it I am sure a demonic figure appears, whether this is fake or not is another matter.

Cassette Tape

The audio I recovered from the cassette tape is only short but it sounds like a riot or disaster is taking place, presumably on the island. Throughout the recording emergency sirens can be heard alongside screaming, gunfire and flying aircrafts.


A series of photographs where also recovered from the chest, I briefly went over these in the video from yesterday’s post but they seem to be documenting a huge construction project.

As I have already quoted I am currently still reviewing all the content I have recovered from the chest at Redcar. But at this stage I feel confident enough to say that the chest is an archive of evidence from a huge construction project in the mid 60’s known as Island 12.

Something has clearly happened on this island… having never heard of this island I will dedicate the my time into looking at the rest of this content and trying to dig anything else up on Island 12.

Previously I was unconvinced about this whole situation, but I can’t deny this evidence. If this island is real and something did happen in the 1960’s why does nobody know about it. The cynic in me really wants to throw this chest away but if this is some sort of cover up I need to get to the bottom of it.

Do We Subconsciously Want The End?

Since the beginning of time we have tried to predict the end of the world, from Nostradamus to the 2012 epidemic endless theories have circled around our planet about its ultimate demise.

The most recent advancement of this bizare mentality has sprung up in our daily entertainment. The games industry has never been scared of venturing into controversial mediums but the launch of  the popular strategy game Plague Inc now allows a player to end the world tactically.

The app based game available on most smart devices encourages a player to create an intelligent virus and unleash it upon the world. The game is disturbingly addicting and quite frightening.

Why do we want to play these scenarios out ? Is it because we don’t feel worthy of life ? Are we obsessed with death and destruction? Or do we just like the power ?

Who truly knows why this mentality exists in humans but I find it fascinating that we must constantly discover how we will all perish.

Who Gets Paid When You Press Play?

The debate over music piracy and artist royalties was been a hot topic for many years now, but what is your point of view ?

This interesting info-graphic originally posted on shows how much a song must be played, sold or distributed before the artist earns a profit.

I found this graph to highlight streaming websites as demons in disguise, previously I thought that by using a streaming site I was helping an artist financially. But it appears my efforts are futile.

Personally I still feel the best way to support an artist is to watch them live if you get the opportunity, not only do you break away from the confusing ethics of online piracy but the performance will be unique.

Whats remarkable is that the media and record labels insist we the user are financially robbing these artists when the real villain here seems to be the record labels and their ridiculous cuts from a sale.

Google Wants To See What You See

Google Glass is the latest product to take the Internet by storm, over 15 million people have watched the launch video on Youtube. Bids even reached an astonishing $15,000 when a prototype was place on Ebay earlier today, subsequently the listing was removed.

Potential buyers from all over the globe are excited for this new technology but the real issue is being ignored. Yes the ability to record and see maps through special voice commands may be appealing but apart from financial gain what do Google receive.

With simple GPS technology and Cloud-Storage Google can essentially see what you see when you see it. More and more people are now understanding the price of using Facebook. But I feel this new technology will mask the fact that one of the biggest companies in the world are manipulating products to learn more about users.

Where will it end ? glasses ? contact lenses ? or a fully functional mechanical eyeball ?

Have some sense, think about what it will cost you to use this product and not just in a financial sense. Although I promote technology excessively, not all of it is essential.
