In a study of 914 adults in London, University of Westminster's Viren Swami andAdrian Furnham of University College London found that 4.5 percent of respondents espoused an alien abduction theory, 5.5 percent believed the two were spies taken down by the Japanese, and only 32 percent endorsed a relatively undramatic account that the plane crashed into the Pacific after running out of gas. Further, researchers found that respondents who believed in Earhart conspiracy theories had lower self-esteem, were more likely to be cynical toward politics, were less agreeable and gave themselves lower ratings of intelligence.
A study in 2012 by Michael J. Wood and his colleagues at the University of Kent found that those who believed Bin Laden was dead prior to American intervention are more likely to believe he’s currently alive. Similarly, authors found that those who think Princess Diana faked her death are more likely to believe she was murdered. So, which is it? Dead or alive? Research suggests that such contradictory narratives are linked by an underlying distrust of authority. Among conspiracy theorists, it seems, this suspicion is strong enough to overpower traditional life-death logic.

Who needs proof when you have Awareness. Proof is meaningless when you can see the entire picture, and trying to prove everything to everyone just burns you out, and proves nothing in the end other than people love to argue and fight about meaningless things.. Have you ever Suddenly had the Answer to Everything in Existance flash across your brain for a fraction of a second only to have it leave again instantaneously? I have, and it left me stunned and utterly amazed for mnths and mnths afterwards. I saw and experienced the answer to the entire universe in a split second only to have it vaporize the next second. It's not fun, it's maddening.
All conspiracy theories are, are information gathered by people who are Curious about their existance, about their world. Conspiracies are born from curiosity. Without a curious mind, we'd all be drones. We'd be the classic text book people from 1984 too fearful to think too exhausted to care.
They do it because of a lack awareness, and the result is the society we have now, over complex and dumbed down…
At any rate, in the epiphany I saw a black spiders web encircling the globe. But what I did not see was where and how the spiders hole attached to the earth,

I have a question for you, do you suppose you were led to the awareness of the world as it truly is by someone else, your own intellect or something else? I understand this is an ongoing process of daily realization, like when a news story comes out and you right away go, uh huh, thats a lie (not knowing the truth of it but knowing the lie when you see it). Do you think that awareness (outside the cave) is a gift, a learned thing or someone else's teaching?
Thanks for any thoughts you may have on this.
I don't know if that is the rel reason, it might appear as though. To "Catch" on to something, or get a clue, or realize, or become apparent, requires more than just rumors or feel good sayings. And I'm the first to say it because I have said so many things that cant be proven, but, we need, hard core evidence. Something that seem to be very elusive. Something like NASA publicly stating the lights of Ceres are actually emanating from its interior, and that Ceres isn't a planet, but the core of a planet that used to be there, covered with hundreds of millions of years worth of dust. Now, look at the scene where the aliens are teleporting to their home planet again. If in the movie that planet represents the inner sun, then Ceres in reality represents what I offered above.

What makes it soo good is how bad it's mocking the world. The movie pulls no punches at explaining who the 'aliens' are, yet even today most people aren't catching it, that's why we continue to lose.
But if you'd like to watch something i can pm it, i think you're open enough you might just like this one.
