A "conspiracy" can be broadly defined as something happening behind our backs of which we are not aware, but which nonetheless affects us greatly. It has to involve several parties, acting in some sort of a secret agreement or collusion with each other, to further the goals of their association. And if it's a good conspiracy, it ultimately has to have a dominating effect on our lives and our ways of thinking.
Taking a theoretical look at the early evolution of conspiracy, it is amazing to see just how entrenched its very notion became in our human makeup. Because it would seem that the origins of all our modern-day conspiracies go way back to the earliest tribal societies.
