Where is Alexander Arguelles ?

Postby rdearman » Fri Jun 15, 2018 9:44 am

Anybody heard anything from the good professor? Also ages ago I found a collection of threads he'd posted on HTLAL but can't find it anymore. Only thing I could find was: http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/fo ... PN=0&TPN=9

Is this the thread you were thinking of?
Where did Ardaschir disappear?

(Will's post on that page has a link to a ZIP-file with all of Ardaschir's/Arguelles' threads until 22 February 2007 - he returned shortly after that, and was so-so active for a number of years.)

Arguelles has his website (contact info on the contact page), and then there's of course his Youtube channel.

That was the zip file I was looking for! Thanks.

Although Arguelles was very productive before 2007, I think he wrote even more after his return. He got his own sub-forum called Lessons in Polyglottery, started recording videos on Youtube, eventually started his website and so on.

Seems to have stopped doing anything. Last I saw of him was at the Gathering in Berlin where a video was recorded of his presentation. Haven't seen anything since other than a YouTube video he posted by mistake of himself speaking Russian or something.

I don't think he ever visited any of the Berlin gatherings, but there is this video from Novi Sad (published in 2014):



And then a fairly recent one (a little more than one year ago) from the New York conference in 2017:



He was involved in the conference in Reykjavik last year:

I'm sure that there are some Llorg members who met him at the latest conferences.

Sorry if I am overlooking something, but the link to the zip file, http://rapidshare.com/files/17756705/threads.zip , does not seem to be working anymore. Do you have a link that works, or a way of making the given link work? Thanks very much!

I met him both in Novi Sad and Reykjavik (both polyglot conferences), so it might be possible that he also comes to Ljubljana later this year. But I don't remember having seen him at any of the gatherings.

EDIT: ... and Thessaloniki too, of course

I stand corrected, it was a conference video I remembered not a gathering one. The link to the zip file is dead. It annoys me because I downloaded it once and now I've lost it.

He was in Thessaloniki as well, I met him there. He's not been to any gatherings, as far as I know.
