The world is not a pleasant place. But here it is night black. A deep rabbit hole…
A little background… I have an FB acquaintance, now retired, but in every way a trained, critically drilled human. She has repeatedly shared a rumor that Bill Gates was recently convicted in a secret military court for various abominations and executed by hanging. All right.
But then I saw that Gates was interviewed in real time yesterday at a major climate conference in London.
At least that contradicts the rumor that he’s dead. I pointed out this and that it would be nice to share this with your followers as well.
Today she had linked a post by a Yrsa Häggström, where you can read:
I can understand that everything seems so confusing when you can see the same person on TV, but read here that he/she is dead. But don’t forget that these people have doppelgangers/clones and then there’s CGi technology (like PhotoShop but for TV). That’s all the Deep State does to hide its own shortcomings and to manipulate us viewers into thinking these people are still in our midst.
In this post I commented
I just don’t want to get into this rabbit hole, sorry, NN… Is it because I’m ignorant, lethargic, gullible… Sure, I saw Bill Gates being interviewed at some super-climate event just the day before yesterday… Maybe just a clone, doppelgänger, as I saw, or maybe fake television, advanced data manipulation… But no, I really don’t think so. She’s skeptical that Vilks died in a car accident, too. Phew… She sees patterns… I see a pattern, a tendency, me with…
My acquaintance replied that she too, like this Häggström, may also feel wondering if the artist Lars Vilks’ death was really just a normal car accident. And that she hopes that “there are some serious investigators who dare to come up with some truth”…
To which I answered like this
NN, through your channels you will receive “revelations” that he a) was killed by the Deep State, b) beamed into space by an extraterrestrial civilization, c) taken to a remote research station to be deprogrammed there by the Shadow Califate, d) recruited by the White Hats & brought by submarine to D Trump’s residence to be his secret adviser, or perhaps e) himself staged his death, The policemen bit him to death during the journey, but he himself quickly crawled out of the wreckage & into the bushes, pulled off his skin suit and then crawled back into a swamp like the lizard he had always been. Just wait and see
(Sorry, NN, that’s not bad, but I can go crazy about this kind of nonsense…)
Lars Vilks has lived with a death sentence over him for many years. One theory, my acquaintance points out, is that someone new managed to execute it. To that I answered
Those who thought the fatwa was well deserved are of course satisfied. Even though Vilks died in a completely trivial, tragic car accident.
I feel like the explanation with which you’re leaning has something to do with “cognitive style”… Heard about that experiment where people – Christians, atheists and alternative spirituals – were put in front of a computer screen where 100 dots shifted randomly, but told them to signal when a motive appeared? The latter saw significantly more such meaningful patterns… Angels, animals, etc.
Ps. The study can be read about in an article by Farias, Claridge &lalljee (2005). Ds.
