Maybe all of those things do have a link but I really don't think that an evil world government is behind it. Whenever conspiracy theorists try to
link up mysterious events I always wonder if they have ever read the books of Charles Fort. This isnít the first time that many of these types of
events have occurred. Charles Fort (who's name would later become Fortean phenomena) document thousands upon thousands of weird events in the late
1800's, before the industrial age or government black projects. Fort documented x-file like events from all over the world. He listed these types
of events going clear back to 1779. These Fortean anomalies are still happening the only difference is now when they happen people want to link them
to some secret government project, but the reality is that weird sh*t happens and there doesnít have to be a conspiracy involved.
Charles Fort: The Complete Books of Charles Fort is a good place to start reading.
His work is in book form or free to download and read:
Sacred-texts.com has a couple of his books available:
ďCharles Fort was a crank in the best sense of the word. Lovecraft and the X-files can't begin to compete with the spooky stuff he uncovered. In the
early twentieth century he put together great quantities of exhaustively documented 'puzzling evidence' (in the words of David Byrne), data which
science is unable or unwilling to explain. Forts' books gave me nightmares when I read them when I was seven. Strange items drop from the sky,
bizarre artifacts turn up in unexpected places, stars violate the laws of astronomy, giant clouds blot out the moon and the sun trembles in the sky.
Is the world inside out? Is it flat? Or maybe shaped like a giant spindle?
What does it all mean? He drops cryptic, breathless hints such as "I think we're property." and "I think that we're fished for. It may be that
we're highly esteemed by super-epicures somewhere." Whatever you think about this information, you will at some point while reading Forts' books
feel like the foundations of your reality are slipping slightly to the south...
Consider yourself warned!Ē
