In the middle of all this noise and extremism from both sides, is there anyone else like me out there who is generally a well-grounded, skeptical
person, who cannot believe all this card stuff actually seems to have something to it and has a very hard time accepting that, yet at the same time
can't ignore that the mountains of bizarre coincidences have piled up beyond explanation? It's too freaking weird if you don't have a preconceived
theory of the world that it fits neatly into, and I try not to have one of those. It's just frankly one of the strangest things I have ever seen, and
again, I can't really prove this, but if anybody who knew me knew I was saying that, I guarantee they would be surprised.
I know all about perceptual distortions, and all the very common errors and biases that even very intelligent human beings are subject to. I've looked
at endless claims of strange things and in 99.9% of all cases, it's been very clear to me that the explanation lies with the fact that human beings
are very bad at estimating probability and very good at finding patterns in anything at all.
So either I'm finally just falling for one, or there is really something unbelievably weird going on here. I don't believe in magic, and I definitely
don't think Steve Jackson is psychic. I'm starting to think this all traces back to the Church of the Subgenius somehow, an organization I wouldn't
find it at all impossible to believe was infiltrated or even established by intelligence agencies to begin with. Many of the stranger quotes on the
cards come from Subgenius materials.
