Thomas Edison,Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville and The Third Person

In a way this post is about the people who invented Phonograph but also not about them at all. If you know me you wont find this revelation strange, in fact you will be kind of expecting one very weird post.

In the beginning there were three people,that is how God had planned it..cos He knew  how fast two people can get bored with each other. So in the beginning it was Adam,Eve and the Third person. Centuries have passed and no one yet knows the name or gender or even religion of the third person. Some say he/she was the person who named the other two Adam and Eve.
You werent thinking one fine morning two people opened their eyes found them(without clothes) on earth are started calling each other Adam and Eve ..were you?
This third person
was it a he
or  she
or a Satan
born as human
or an alien
in human disguise
what was God’s plan
or was this hidden
even from Him
Nah of course He knew
but what was his/her name
and why the mystery
World leaders meet twice every year at the United Nations to solve this mystery( this also solves the puzzle why U.N is never able to prevent any war or crime …cos they have an age-old mystery to solve first) and every year the leaders come back without any answer to their nation and then to get over depression blame neighbouring countries and promote gender and religious divides..which kinda makes sense.
All this is true but you wont believe me. if you are nodding or laughing, let me tell you, this blog is about fact i will rename it the truth blog where only truth exists..only the true stories.
Like in one of my posts i wrote how i jumped from my 6th floor balcony one morning to save a monkey and landed up on quick sand.
You may ask why i thought the monkey needed  help but i would prefer to keep quite at this moment cos animals can’t talk and its our duty to understand their discomfort…anyways no further comment( all will be revealed in Oprah )

So i had monkey in one hand and a lotus on another( no comments) but i didn’t let either die or fall even though i knew the quick sand was gulping all of us fast .But in the end all three of us were safe and on 6th floor enjoying the rains( again no comments)

Getting back to the mystery of the third person,some say he/she was Gay. Now why would those people say so I have no idea. There are people who are god loving and god fearing and also respecting God  and doing everything right who will feel betrayed if this is how things started.
And also if god wanted us to be gay he would have built a … know a ..OK right now i am not able to think of anything but will be back soon on this matter with cure to Gayism, Autism, Womanism and also Oldism all of which are curses and weapons of mass destruction.
A Scientist when promised anonymity,told me in hush-hush tone that the answer lies in the poem “Mary had a little lamb“…
Now i may not have read Shakespeare a lot but i have read Mary had a little lamb and i have no idea what these people were trying to tell me in hush-hush tone it a between the lines thing which i never get ?
Also  why did Edison sing this rhyme when he recorded  his first phonograph. And what is more interesting is The original 1877 recording was not saved and no longer exists.
some say the clue lies in the French folk song “Au Clair de la Lune” sung by  Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville in 1857. But i can confirm there is no information in it.
Anyways listen to the video clip and try to decode it and if you find anything do let me know cos a lot depends on this.
well i hope i have been a great help and the pieces of informations on this blog will one day open portals to new somethings which will be very important to atleast some one.
oh and By the way if i had that chance of recording my voice in the phonogram,
 i would have said-
‘Big Z, little Z, what begins with Z?
I do.
I’m a zizzer zazzer zuzz, as you can plainly see.’

  1. I am so sorry…I laughed out loud too! Apologies to the vase 😀 You are too much Soma!

  2. Just the post I needed to read to give me a pick-me-up! Thanks you 🙂

  3. I’m late and racing around and not sure what to say … So … Mary had a little lamb …

  4. Hey Soma!
    I’ve missed you so much. 
    I had been very busy the past month, and couldn’t blog for a while.
    Also, I changed my notification e-mail id because of which my
    subscription to all the blogs that I followed got cancelled somehow. 
    I was not getting any updates for a while, and since I was thoroughly
    busy with work, I didn’t have the time to look into the matter.
    Anyways, I am back now, and have tackled the problem!
    I have missed out so much of your blog over the past month. 
    Sad…sadder…and saddest.
    But I’ve started on with this post, and am I glad or what? As usual
    you have crafted the issue so well, and presented it in a very unique
    way, typical Soma Style.  There are some enlightening comments about
    the Third person. 😀 I really liked this one. Keep it up!!
    Love and Hugs.

  5. SOMA STAR …
    i read Deb’s Post ,…….
    what a beautiful celebration of YOU !!!!!!!!!
    lol xox

  6. Could there possibly be a fundamental flaw in the general interpretation of what exists inside the grand crystal ball?? 😉

  7. I am glad I am late reading this! I needed cheering up. You are so imaginative and bright, like a star in the sky when it is the deepest blue leading us to believe it actually black.

    There is no third person, the secret had to be kept that is why all the evidence was destroyed.

  8. I never knew that Thomas Edison —Adan —Eve– and THE THIRD PERSON could be used to compose such a hilarious piece of scientifically strong and politically disastrous amalgam in the history of mankind . I laughed seriously with curiosity to know latest your mind blog.

  9. It’s supposed to be a secret, but the third person was not a person at all, but was a Wombie. Now you know.

  10. Another masterpiece – sorry, mistresspiece? Where is all this coming from, Soma dear? Your thought process is fascinating, so eclectic. My visits to your blog are always such great fun. Great big hugz for a friend, Eric

  11. Oh, Soma, my dear, my cheeks are hurting (on my face) :)….from smiling and laughing! Your imagination is incredible…monkeys, lotus, quicksand and now my perspective of Mary had a little lamb will never be the same! Thanks for this wonderful entertainment! xo

  12. Very interesting. I have always suspected that Mary led some type of animal cult that refused to wear wool.

  13. Hi! In Poland the summer is short and not very hot. Thank you for the nice visit. Greetings!

  14. Soma… amazing post covering such a vast expanse of time! With regards to the video clip, listen to the interference between the spoken words, and your answer will appear.
    I’d tell you the answer myself, but that makes quests a little less fun!
    Have a great weekend!

    • yes yes omg there is some one saying something in the interference…Tom my good ness you are a got it..all i have to do is decode it somehow…
      hey i thought you were my know the answer and still not telling me..

  15. Dr Seuss’s ABC’s yay!! ok…I’m fascinated right now…Listening to a radio podcast on humonculi so my brain is right there with this….And sixth floor into quicksand….Wow Soma…I have a new view of you:)))) I really am thrilled to see your writing…bug hugs..Enjoy your Saturday

  16. NOW NOW that was amazing .. and I liked that video mary had a little lamb..

    but how can we be sure that the third person was evil.. it could be the other way round 🙂

    Each time i come oever here I feel gooood .. THank you So much

    • he he he he right now no one is sure who is the evil or whether there was an evil in the begining or not…and mary had a lamb or not and if she didnt then why write such a poem….Bikram help!!!

  17. You made me laugh, smile and also you made me think as usual…Yay Soma for a wonderful post! 🙂 Hugs

  18. I have to admit I laughed about how 2 people get bored with each other. I love the way your mind works, Soma 🙂 I also love what your Maa said, she would expect nothing less from you 🙂 It’s very true you saved the monkey and the Lotus, now did you save the lotus cos it’s the national flower of India? or just cos it’s pretty? Hmmmm, it’s something to think about!! 🙂 hugs

  19. Taking us on yet another marvelous adventure. Way to go!!! I always new there was a third…I think Alien lifeform though. And no wonder those leaders can never solve any world issues…still trying to figure out those puzzles. I’m glad when you jumped off the 6th floor into quicksand you were okay. I am glad you have magical powers….and such a keen mind!!! Can you please solve some other mysteries of the world…like where do socks go? And how come chocolate tastes so good? Okay, wise story teller. Thank you for the giggles and a trip into Soma’s land of truth!! xoxoxo You’re super. :)…..I don’t know what I would have recorded. Probably my son’s voice at a young age….saying “God gives us dope..God gives us dope. God gives us dope.” When he mistook the song lyrics: God gives us hope. 🙂 he he

    • hey you didnt know…omg washing machines are portals to new worlds where all our socks and handkerchiefs are playing games of all sorts…how ridiculous is that haan and people make fun of my stories..what about playing dancing socks !!!
      as for chocolates ……Sam you have so much to learn and know..anyways..chocolates as the name suggests is always late on its journey cos it has to travel through the sugar cane fields and by the time they reach factories they are all sweet
      and about the bitter ones..they travel through gardens where bitter gourds grow..
      Phew todays lessons complete …lol

    • i am going to do a post on what your son said its so funny i will die if i dont write something on it..too good tell your son he is my best friend i used to pray-THANK YOU LORD FOR OUR JELLY(DAILY) BREAD..i mean why would god only give bread and no jam right!!

  20. Hi,
    A great post, what a great start for the morning. 🙂
    The world leaders have to come back with no answers, that way they can have another great holiday to plan. 😀
    I loved the video what a fantastic find, the first recording, brilliant.

  21. You are such an imaginative person, my friend!…and so funny! The third person is there alter ego. the battle within themselves.

  22. super cool thinking here

  23. Soma, you are such a nut. And thank goodness for that 🙂 I think the 3rd person exists so we can blame them for everything. (It wasn’t me. Was it you? No, i didn’t do it either. It must be that other guy…or is it that other chick? You know, the one we would never talk to, who is nothing like us.) Enjoy your weekend 🙂

    • 🙂 you are right I told you God had thought of everything
      a third person and a nut like me 🙂
      …yes it that chick that oh so hot with perfect body..damn she is responsible for everything ..even global warming..
      Thanks Kathryn 🙂

  24. It’s a very original and amusing post. I didn’t nodd but I laughed becouse it’s reliable. You are too much funny to lose your post.

  25. Ciekawy,dowcipny post….very nice weekend

  26. From you I expect nothing less than this, I’m so sorry laughed at this serious post. I enjoy your every post.

  27. I think you’ve hit on something here. In the full version of Mary Had A Little Lamb, the lamb follows Mary to school, which was against the rules (sin). The teacher kicks the lamb out (of the garden of Eden) but Mary follows the lamb, because she loves it. OR – the Lamb follows Mary to school (Jesus) and the teacher kicks the Lamb out (of the world) but Mary follows it because she loves the Lamb. There is much to every children’s poem, but some we really would rather not know.

    • I have always loved rhymes and then found out the stories behind the rhymes..intriguing..yes we know so little but it is so much fun reading their origin and the kind of satire of the times they actually carry….
      Great point Daniel
      Thanks 🙂

  28. Yes what about me – I’ve just read an other amazing post from the girl with La Plume d’Or… 😉

    Mentioning Shakespeare I’ll recall me “To be, or not to be, that is the question” – a question of balance – and not many have so rich talents as you to balance on those cobblestones, we call letters – so everyone thinks of a beautiful ballet dancer… 😉

    • Ah thank you for the honour…I have heard the music AuClairdelaLune so may it 🙂
      you are a sweetheart Ledrakenoir.Thank you so much 🙂
      wish you a lovely weekend 🙂

  29. You can call me ZuZZZie! Love the weirdness of this! A monkey from quick sand? Wow!
    Have a fantastical weekend Soma!

  30. Ha, only you could tie all of this together. Nice post!

  31. Word Hug – Brilliant Activated Heart Soma Star ………….!!!!!!!
    that’s all i can say …..
    You are genius Soma ….

  32. Very funny. On a serious side in a theological or philosophical sense, it has been suggested that Adam and Eve kicked God out of the Garden, not vice versa. The myth interpreted this way validates the claim that God does not exclude man-the invitation is unconditionally open- but it is man in his folly that excludes God. I also know who the third person was. He was an agent of The United States Internal Revenue Service.

  33. It may have been difficult to save Edison’s first recording, it was (I believe) simply some tin foil wrapped around a tube on his Phonograph. Notoriously fragile stuff tinfoil, but it’s what he had to work with. I think playing the recording backwards may have actually answered the question. Just my opinion though 😉

  34. Well this is the first of your posts I have read that isn’t a poem and I must say I TOTALLY enjoyed it. As an Aspie myself and also a person with Dyslexia I found myself giggling quite a lot. Now tell me….it is ok I giggled isn’t it? I can never tell and end up offending many people.
    Oh well, you know my heart is in the right place. Love and hugs. xx 🙂
