    NOTE: Rambaldi is not real! See the next post for more information...

    Rambaldi was a 16th century inventor who seemed to have a psychic vision of the future. He was also was Pope Alexander VI's chief architect, and was killed for suggesting that someday, science could allow us to know God. After Rambaldi's execution, his workshop was taken down, and plans and sketches were traded and sold for next to nothing. Because of this, his work is scattered around the world. Throughout Alias, we learn more and more about him. His book, which seemed like an instruction manual to something, is in 100 segments. Some of the text is in Italian (his nationality), but the rest of it is in code. However, because he had a habit of hiding his real work in ordinary things, it is hard to tell the real story at any one time. In all of his works, Page 47 is important to him. He spent the last ten years of his life working on one project. We don't know whether it's a weapon, a fuel source, or a transportation system. Based on the little we do know, its technology is beyond anything we have ever seen.

    Rambaldi is very important to most intelligence networks, including the CIA and SD-6.

    His symbol is " <0> ".

    From folowers-of-rambaldi.org:

    Born in Parma in 1444, Rambaldi was educated by monks of the Vespertine order, and until the age of 12, was self-employed as a painter, sculptor and student of the arts. Introduced to Cardinal Alexander of the Roman Catholic church, during his travels to Rome at the age of 18, he was retained privately as architect, consultant and prophet, when Alexander became Pope in 1492.

    Despite this benefactor's wishes to see Rambaldi prosper, during his lifetime Rambaldi and his works receded from visibility by commandment of Archdeacon Claudio Vespertini, who feared the revolutionary implications of technologies defined in Rambaldi's belief system, and sought to have Rambaldi's works contained and eventually eliminated. He conflicted with Alexander VI on this one matter; a moot point at the time of the Pope's passing in 1503.

    Vespertini commanded that the name Rambaldi be "washed" from all monuments and edifices throughout the period of 1470 to 1496, at which time he ordered that the Pope's engineer be excommunicated for heresy, his workshop in Rome be destroyed, and that he be sentenced to death by flame, upon Rambaldi's declaration that science would someday allow us to know God.

    Milo Rambaldi died a lonely man, in the Winter of 1496. He had no surviving spouse or heir.

    Shortly after Rambaldi's demise, a second, "secret workshop" was discovered, in San Lazzaro, and was systematically torn apart by agents of the Vatican. In a movement to discredit his work and influence, plans and sketches were sold and traded for next to nothing by mandate during a private auction.

    Since the 15th century, traces of Rambaldi's enigmatic work have turned up in various places around Italy, France, parts of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and even a museum warehouse in Waterbury, Connecticut in 1921. The design directive for many of these drawings remains unclear to this day, and has even inspired some impressive forgeries.

    Rambaldi is said to have preceded the digital information age by implication of an illustrated "machine code" language as early as 1489, through the introduction of cryptic algorithms (eg, compression) around his use of pre-binary 1's and 0's. Many of his drawings and documentation are written in multiple languages ranging from Italian and Demotic hybrids, to elusive mixtures of symbols (pre-masonic cipher encryptions).

    Rambaldi created the earliest known watermark on all of his papers, known as the "eye" of Rambaldi, and which show up to the naked eye only when held to black light. His waterpapers were all hand-made and of a unique polymer fiber (similar to onion skin), and possessing a consistency that has lived and aged well-beyond its era, and in under (oftentimes) adverse storage conditions. His watermark (the eye "<o>") is so far the only test of accuracy against the slew of falsifications and forgeries, which have also arisen in a revisionist era, culminating with several prime examples of digital piracy. So far there have been 102 known forgeries in balance to the total of 22 known and documented sketches.

    Documents interpreting Rambaldi's designs and teachings were highly sought-after during the Third Reich, during Adolf Hitler's paranoid scavenger hunt for occult and theoretical knowledge. During this period, the epithet "Nostravinci" became part of the fuhrer's private lexicon -- a personalized short-hand for the name Rambaldi, in auctioneering circles where the desire for the seer's work still proved competitive.

    Rambaldi's works are still, to this day, formally unpublished, due to a consistent international ban on the name Rambaldi, its fascistic legacy, and especially its lack of visibility; it has been alleged that a conspiracy of containment precedes many of these twentieth-century discoveries, even that the knowledge contained under private sanctioning of his documents remains under the firm "hand" of the Trilateral Commission.

    In 1988, a rudimentary schematic unearthed in one private collector's home in Brazil, indicated on the back, a diagramme for a transportable vocal communicator revealed the design and workings of contemporary cellular phone technologies.

    Since March of 2001, (KDir Classifications Director) Olgi C. Krystovnich (b. 1964, Russian historian and cryptologist) happened upon one of Rambaldi's earliest designs, ca. 1460, located and released from a personal collection in Madrid. In this drawing, she identified a prototype that reflected the properties and composition of a 20th century transistor design.

    The remainder of Rambaldi's oeuvre remains forgotten, and much of it has been destroyed, with much uncertainty remaining as to how many notebooks he might have filled during the fifty-four years of his life.

    Rambaldi's Prophesy

    On page 47 of the manuscript, there is a picture of woman. This woman looks similar to Syd (or her monther). It is surrounded by text describing this woman and her actions. The text refers to future dates indicating the woman in the picture is still alive. The text also describes three specific anomalies of the woman: DNA sequencing, platelet levels, and the size of her heart. Sydney matches all three of these.

    Here we quote the prophesy iteslf:

    This woman here depicted will possess unseen marks. Signs that she will be the one to bring forth my works. Bind them with fury, a burning anger unless prevented at vulgar cost this woman will render the greatest power unto utter desolation. This woman, without pretense, will have had her effect, never having seen the beauty of my sky behind Mt. Sebacio. Perhaps a single glance would have quelled her fire.

    Becuase of the words "will have had her effect, never having seen the beauty of my sky behind Mt. Sebacio. Perhaps a single glance would have quelled her fire", Vaughn and Jack try to take her to see Mt. Sebacio.

    Did you guys know that a hidden sign of Rambaldi is in the opening title in one of the frames before Alias flashes on the screen? That's from Declassified and I thought it was interesting.

    Yeah. I noticed that the first time I recorded Alias. I paused it and studied it and everything. At the time, I didn't even know who Rambaldi was, so I was very curios.

    Good point because in Episode like 9 Passage Part 2.. the Kusav guy did the rambaldi re carnation flowers so maybe he is still alive and is some one we have seen before or a hidden leader that would be so cool!
