A little more care is needed …

[See below for a newer comparison]

The above image is taken from Elle Magazine, and is a composite of Emma Mackey and Margo Robbie, with the blend so thorough that you cannot tell where one face begins and the other ends. I know there is software out there that performs this magic. In fact, a former writer used to use it, claiming it was superior to my face splitting. Anyway, you can see by the sunglasses atop the head and the vertical line in the neck that it is a composite.

I have long claimed that such comparisons need a gold standard to be reliable, and that that standard is the distance between pupils. The software approximates by sizing the two faces so that they fit one another, but that is not conclusive. When I saw this composite, I immediately thought I could do better.

I agree that these two women look remarkably alike, in fact, could be twins. But twins do not look alike, rather, only bear strong resemblance that please our outer eyes without ferreting out details. The question is, if these two are identical, do their features align? We cannot tell that by mere examination with the naked eye. The details are too fine. SEE DOWN BELOW FOR A BETTER PHOTO COMPARISON.

Above is a face split of the two women. I have set the pupil distance on each at one inch, and then combined the faces and set the pupil distance again at one inch, this after making sure that the eyes align with one another. Because the two photos have the heads at different angles, we get a very wide face, but that does not matter. It is only alignment of features that does, and here we can see that the upper lip and nose do not align. That means two different people, even as they look so much alike.

I maintain my methodology is superior to the naked eye, and to software out there that uses computer programming to blend faces, forcing them together without rigor. Of course my technique is not perfect, and human error plays a role, but by and large the method conveys useful information, as it did here. I find it most useful in telling us that two people are not the same, but often enough it shows that two people are indeed identical. Not here, however.

_______________

On suggestions that the face angles were interfering with things, I went and got new photos, and got them straightened. Both are looking directly at the camera.

Pretty darn close, I have to say. Robbie has a slightly longer face and bigger lips, or maybe just more lipstick. The ears do not align, even as these appear to be straight-on photos. I have to withdraw my work from yesterday and go with this.

PS: Their eye colors are different, but in show business, that means nothing. In the Elle composite, they have made them the same color.

  1. I hate to say it but this is your poorest work in my humble opinion; she is clearly “looking down her nose” in the pic on left and thus has her chin back and up slightly… similarly on the left she is facing the camera down just a tad, a neat trick of the hollywood/money’d/(spycraft to throw off mugshots in foreign territory) that definitely shifts her features ‘layout’ comparatively..
    Adjust for these and the pics line up perfectly.

    1. You could be right, of course, and there is always the lens distortion factor. I am prepared to be wrong. However, I have found that facial features are barely affected by slight tilts forward or backward, even as ears are very distorted by the same movements. When the eyes align, everything else should fall into place. If the eyes are shifted up or down, everything else moves with them.

          1. I have a free version I downloaded years ago. If I had to drop 40 bucks today to get it, I would.
            I look for similar photos and overlay one over the other, rotate if needed to align the pupils because I can change the opacity on the top pic so I can see both sets of eyes. I then zoom the top pic to make the heads the same size, but without changing the dimensions. That’s the key. The shape of the head remains accurate to the original photo. If both heads align this way, without distortion, then it’s legit imo. Takes a few minutes if you have similar close-up red carpet type pics to work with.

            1. Just to pile on, I think those two are cousins/batch baked bastards/IVF tampered/care-taken- Robbie’s bio is classic. Sugar baron father walks out on family when she’s 5. I assume he was the IVF donor, nothing more. The mother was in the medical industry, probably as a cover so her intense peerage breeding could be closely monitored. Like her other Aussie cousins, Blanchett, Kidman, Watts, et al, MR is skin and bones. In fact, just google Australian actresses and look at the mug shots. That is one shallow gene pool.

              1. I just came out of an intense sweat lodge with (especially) Gram Parsons, as there was so much going on in front of his face to make him appear to be the same person when he was two. I do not think in those days they felt the need to do too much with the photos, as the illusion of one person was enough that with hair and resemblance they felt the job done. I think today they could make it stick, that I would never be able to unmask twins as I have done. I think that Geffens is especially unmasked.,

                I do not trust this software you use, as so often my method, FWIW, is in disagreement. I wonder if you can take the Gram Parsons photos, where I claim two of them to be clinkers who later line up with Katz, and unmask them in the manner my work does. I do not claim I know what I am doing. I have always only felt something is up with my stuff. I repeat my assertion to the critic that opened this comment string, that if the eyes are in line, then head tilt will have little effect, as everything moves in sync. My technique shows two different people, even if ever so slightly. I cannot fudge my results to make that different. I am not talking about honesty in presentation, just the technique itself, which tends to yield honest results. It was a discovery, not something I intended or have hyped, and yes, of course, mistakes can happen. (That is passive voice. I make mistakes.)

  2. This is such interesting work and certainly in literature/history we see the leitmotif of the imposter/fraud and how the ruling classes would find this to be extremely relevant for maintaining power, both the power to create and to debunk. But I am really curious what has compelled you and so many others to pursue this craft to such a time-consuming extreme? It’s amazing the tech and the eye in tandem, no doubt!

  3. How to explain a mild obsession? I have a transparent ruler with one inch delineated in 32nd’s, and I move it back and forth and up and down in my work so that my screen is mucked up as to make the surface so scratched that I could not get a second hand store to accept it as a donation. I say “obsession” as it is tedious labor and I do not enjoy it. I have mild stenosis in my spine (4th and 5th vertebrate) since as an accountant I have spent too many hunched over hours. After just half an hour I have neck pain. But I think that the work is yielding useful information. I think it sometimes approaches truth. When I used my own photos, 30 years apart, and saw it work on me, I became a believer in my own magic. Why do I do it? My life is nothing more than a search for truth. This technique is an aid. It seems to work.

    1. Over the years I’ve not see it, that is, alignment of eyes dictates everything else, so if the eyes move down, the comparison is still the eyes, and the distance between features is not altered. Of course, I make it a point where possible to find full frontal photos. The two used here, if I think of it today among my otehr chores, I’ll find better photos.

        In all fairness, the amount of people “waking up” to a facechop I think is very small. But my point is that it is all completely irrelevant. You start already with some media figure, which identifies them as fake from the get-go (just re-read Maarten’s first-hand experience decades ago).

        Fakery is just a tiny part of the methods the Animal Farmers use for malipulation (one of the many Newspeaks also of the last weeks; manipulation, which we all do everyday, with a malicious intent), but the people at Fakeologist and too many here too think they have reached the summit, now they have figured out the media fakes things.

        No, but seriously?

        Why do you guys all keep being stuck in this nonsensical conspiracy theory. Life is all about prosperity theory. And practice.

        The only way to get to a better world, is making a better world.

        As a junkie drooling over the next meaningless facechop is exactly as dumb as the other New Normies suffering from netflixation.

        Gaia, at my age they would turn me down for bucket brigades. Some things are out of my control, the state of the world among those things.

        Mark, you are a senior and someone with an enormous amount of insights into the Animal Farm (and much more than just fakery, the psychological mass malipulation is what it is mainly about; it doesn’t matter if something is fake, as long as it is real in the minds of the people).

        You should be teaching the younger generations. Spread your knowledge, real knowledge, not this prep school level stuff.

        Yes, I know, it is never nice to hear you should stop being a couch potato and start becoming resistance.

        Resistance is a philosophy, it is how you live your life. There is no age limit to that, the only geriatric excuses I accept are because of physical or mental ailments. And also in that area you should lead as a fit senior, not hide behind age. Age demands from you that you teach, in a more coherent way than just blog posts. Training material for the younger generations, being mutated and malipulated from all sides.

        What is holding you back?

        I cannot people who didn’t wake up along me, in June 2019, that this “Fakeology”/conspie theory is a trap, and the wrong area to spend your energy on.
        But I can and do and keep blaming everyone who was awake to the Animal Farm before the Coronacaust and DIDN’T wake up, the New Normies, who just keep doing what they did before, i.e. most of the commenters here.

        I do have hope for humanity and that there are readers here who like to take more action than the consumerist degenerate lifestyle the Animal Farm has succeeded to indoctrinate in even the theoretically most awake minds….

                    2. Triggerman, I sometimes struggle to understand you, and it would surprise me if that is only me, but what I distill from your words is that you like to apologize for an offense I haven’t seen.

                      I am not offended by words. Words by themselves are meaningless, though words become swords if you give them meaning. And that meaning can only follow from what others can see, observe; acts.

                      I am only offended by acts, lack thereof, or words unaligned with acts.

                      That is because I have a strong sensor of logic, reason and thus objective truth. That is not a skill I consciously developed, but in hindsight perfectly fits into the Psychopathy thread of last year, and where I still should share my cents on that, from a young age both me and my sister were (unwillingly) trained in
                      an excellent memory
                      logical thinking and asking for evidences when in doubt
                      no fear (if you think I am raw and radical, you haven’t met my sister. Fearlessness for a man is a big plus, for a woman it is a superpower)

                      so the basics of truth seeking, and thus of a conscious philosophy of prosperity theory. Which becomes practice with just a couple of hands of others, I have built a solid philosophical and logistical framework for a different future, one where fairness and respact count.

                      I did not get what you meant with “dollars”. But money is gonna disappear. That does not mean the Mammon is gonna disappear, far from it, see NFT hypes and Blockchain scams all over the place.

I can understand how you don’t understand me; and I don’t understand you. it’s called being eccentric. That’s what they say about people who get into the different Arts. Some of us just don’t follow the same beaten path; or march to the tune of one drum. I went through that at a very young age; dealing with joining bands. The Music running thru my ears. dealing with different personality types; attitude changes and chest bumping; I’d had it right up to the roof with petty jealousy; self centered nonsense and ego clashing. I caught a break at an early age to become a studio musician when I met a young Jewish fellow named Danny Klein who had connections into the industry. Like the wrecking crew out of L.A. They have the pickers out of Muscle Shoals AL. He introduced me to a man named Jimmy Hall. And as they say ,The rest was History. Do I still have attitude problems, and high strung judgemental issues on things with the ways of the world today, Yes even as I age into my 70s…Absolutely ! But, do I “LIKE” to..”APOLOGIZE” as you said.. I “Like to do” ? Most people don’t like to apologize for anything. Some people can’t even admit when they’re wrong, But when you’re wrong; You’re wrong ! And it’s the right thing to do. Good thoughts, Good days. good Thoughts, good Nights.

One good point they made was highlighting the (possible) esoteric meaning of the Harry Potter series – that it’s a veiled allegory of such breeding programs. That will make sense if you’re at all familiar with the plot, where Harry is an orphan raised by “muggles,” and later inducted into the elite school for wizards. (I think MM once decoded it along slightly different lines.)
