Are we unknowingly helping with a conspiracy?
After reading in an other thread about some new cloaking device, it got me thinking are we unknowingly helping to spread disinformation?
Yes. It is quite simple, really. Many people on this site, myself included, are discussing things they know nothing about, or very little about, or
in some cases a lot about. Point is, there is never, or very nearly never, an instance where a collaboration on this site, or even in the
'conspiracy community, where all contributers are very knowledgable on the subject. As a result, you have varying degrees of interpretational bias
affecting the outcome of the discussion and motivating it's evolution, or lack thereof.
Many people, especially if they are participating in their free time, are going to get passionate about the subject matter, whatever it may be. In my
experience, an emotional and reactive thought process will derail a thread and detract from the 'number crunching'....the facts and just the
This site may indeed have generated threads which have contained actual ruminations and discernations on real conspiracies.....but the motivation of
the topics and the type of responses have and will doom these traipses with the truth because there is no organization, no recognition....imo. Also,
the wham bam, thank you maam aspect of communications/media will serve to distract....there is always another story to gossip about....a good thread
will last three pages or so and get lost with the next good thread of three or so pages.
Disinformation is an inherent aspect of the current level of our communication skills as a whole, as a society. Homeboy learned to speak and
communicate with a dysfunctional family in the ghetto....redneck learned how to relate to his environment through repeated discussions/arguements
around a beer cooler that centered on he said/she said.....the business world learned to communicate with numbers and a perpetual smile, negating the
negatives and opting for optimism....
.......what I think gets lost in our communication is that we are all interpreting information and stimulii differently. We are taught in varying
fashions, whether it be reigionally specific in that culture effects expression, or our experiences and the people we all choose to surround ourselves
with and thusly affect our moods and motivations.
In summation; this may be a bit disjointed; we are disinformation....a huge pool of humans communicating about an event and/or concepts with indirect
experience to the matter at hand is not the best way to get to the truth. How many people talk about ufos who just want to believe? What about
political ruminations from a staunch (fill in the blank affiliation)? ANd what about the fact that NLP is an art that many people are un familiar
with? Subtle manipulations, subtle differences all get lost in the headline stories......
At any rate, I am not decrying this form of collaboration, merely calling it as I see it....and, after all, noone would get anywhere if noone
