Thanks my friend. I think it behooves anyone and everyone, when presented with a theory, to do some further research, to quantify it and qualify
It’s kind of like going to the doctor, and they tell you that you have terminal cancer; you might in fact want to get a second qualified opinion
before you start giving your possessions away, and telling your boss where they can stick it.
Displaying a degree of critical thought, is in fact what I am encouraging everyone to do. Obviously I have put a lot of research into these things
myself, and drawn some conclusions I hold to be true, but we live in a world where for most people, perception, and not always truth or fact, becomes
People who are inclined to accept other people’s research on things, without conducting some of their own, to further validate it, are probably not
any wiser than people who skeptically dismiss something out of hand without doing any further research either.
When confronted with a disturbing set of facts or coincidences that might radically alter someone’s fundamental perspectives and world view if
adopted that inclination towards out and out denial, without doing further research, as a means to avoid confrontation of having to adopt new
opinions, attitudes and actions to go along with them, can be very powerful.
Sometimes in order for someone to accept an overwhelming preponderance of disturbing evidence it requires some reassuring notion, replete with it,
that life will be more or less the same, based on a solution that’s presented with the problem.
If there is no immediate solution, and the problem they are confronting through this new found information isn’t of immediate grave importance,
sparking an emergency, then it becomes easier, and sometimes preferable to simply deny it.
These are all parts of human nature, and in fact parts that the Powers that Be know how to exploit for their advantage.
All any of us can do is put the information out there and let others be their own judge. If people reject that, well then they do, if they accept it
well then they do, but we all have free will in that regard.
It is though tragic, when people deliberately misrepresent that information out there, through deliberate fabrication of what is being said, to
represent it, in a most disingenuous and agenda driven way.
In fact, that’s exactly what Rome does in distorting information to falsely get people to draw erroneous conclusions, and it is beyond ironic that
the one poster, who has the most trouble accepting Rome would do that, is in fact doing it themselves!
There is a certain propensity on the part of some posters here on ATS to let their imaginations run wild, especially when it comes to doom and gloom
scenarios. They will create sometimes fantastical stories and theories woven with intricate detail on aliens no one has ever seen, Deities no one has
ever seen, and ancient technologies no one has ever seen and often develop there theories off of crude depictions of stylized art rendered into
mediums that aren’t that easy to draw on to begin with. This doesn’t even take into consideration the artists skills in a perfect medium.
If we were to draw conclusions off of the existence of such things simply through artistic renderings, well there would be a huge presence of strange
looking creatures born out of contemporary art.
Yet the reality is crude artistic depictions in difficult mediums doesn’t actually display evidence of the existence of anything but a picture.
They do though give birth to people’s imaginations who get the best of them, and create a lot of intricate theories to create an alternative
reality, that usually has some doom and gloom element to it.
Some might see this for transference of one real bad reality, into an imagined bad reality, and extension of their belief that they are powerless to
change it, based on how much imagery and fiction they put into it.
In many ways it’s a coping mechanism for people who haven’t quite mastered their fears or how to deal with reality.
Naturally the more they can get other people to validate and accept this too, the better a coping mechanism it becomes.
Unlike some of those conspiracies which are all over ATS, largely based on very sketchy or incredibly old elements meant to support them.
This conspiracy is really in your face with a lot of elements worth researching because there are so many powerful real and circumstantial elements to
It is also entirely stoppable, once you take notions of powerful space aliens, gods, inter-dimensional beings, futuristic and ancient technologies out
of it, that there really is no truly verifiable evidence for.
So my conspiracy on Rome while enormous isn’t meant to be such a doom and gloom conspiracy, but a powerful wake up call for people to open their
eyes, do some real research of their own, and consider what each of us individually could do to slow that conspiracy down, or starve it all together.
It’s natural that some of the more ‘gifted’ minds of ATS would want to weave their favorite conspiracies into it, or dismiss it out of hand to
preserve their favorite conspiracies as stand alone coping mechanisms, and alternative realities.
What is sad, is when here on ATS those creative minds that are in fact welcome, start using that creativity to purposefully rewrite what others have
said, and to do it falsely, and attempt to attribute it to them, solely as a means to gain a platform and an audience to validate those theories and
It’s basically contrary to everything ATS is about, denying ignorance.
The good news is, that thread has been well received by the vast majority of people, and given them real food for thought and even some inspiration,
and hopefully they will do some independent research of their own to decide for themselves just how significant or insignificant they choose to make
When you start attempting to impose your own reality on others, well, that’s when you really become Rome!
Thanks for the great post my friend, and your support.
