Follow-up Emails

Here are the emails fro the un-named source of the Conspiracy Theorist's original rant.  His intended perspective was not portrayed in my story as clearly as he wished.  However, his criticisms did not include a review of the "Putting on a Show" episode.  He is reviewing the entire text in order to suggest final revisions for the book's publication, so the jury is still out the source's conclusion.  These emails provided the supporting details which ended up being included in the story.  Note that some of my material interpolated into the Escaped Lunatic's dialogue came from my responses and suggestions. Note also that the responses give a perspective on the composition of the story.  Fair warning:  There is some profanity in these original texts.

Subject: 2nd try
Hey Todd... I started writing to you & thought I'd lost it, but I came back thinking it might have saved (in my email) & here it was! So I'll just continue it... 

I read it, & Iiked it! But it was actually kinda scary reading what I'd posted word for word lmao!! So I was going to suggest that you modified it a bit to make it fit better, which I gathered from your most recent message is what you're doing(?). I'm curious about how it's going to unfold, maybe I can help? I don't know... I thought it was going to be a lot longer, but you said that was half of it?

Okay, as far as the underlying message... I hope we're on the same page here lol! It's not an argument against conspiracy theories, or conspiracy theorists per se... You'd probably have to be one in order to fully understand what I'm trying to say, but I'll try to nutshell it lol!

Well, okay, a brief summary & then I'll go on & tell you as much info as I think I should. Basically the only thing I'm personally against is this whole "fight the system" mentality. Because that's what they want. They need people to fight the system in order to bring about the changes they need to control everyone and everything through one entity, or one government. That's why all these facts are leaking out. It's all being done systematically to cause a reaction, and they're close! Look at all the "peaceful protests" going on. Now, peaceful protests aren't bad, but if you notice it seems as though they want people to fight. Have you heard all the reports of cops harassing people & spraying them with pepper spray & all that? Just my opinion though; I'll keep stressing I stopped looking into it all when I found out they were purposely trying to get people to fight the system. Also (another opinion), if people refuse to fight no matter what this could actually turn out good... Anyway, here we go...

Most of what conspiracy theorists talk about is actually true. There's technology to modify the weather. They can create earthquakes, storms, hurricanes, the works. They can also destroy hurricanes before they reach land btw (if they wanted to). They can listen in on you through your phone even when your phone is off (fox news actually reported on this years ago; you can probably still pull it up on youtube), there's been a plan (project bluebeam) to use hologram technology to stage an extraterrestrial invasion for the main purpose of uniting the whole world under one government (so all the recent ufo sightings I'm guessing are probably holograms. I don't know, I stopped looking into all of it a while back). Oh, and this was also going to be used to portray images (holograms) of certain religious figures in an attempt to get everyone to accept a new religion (long story, as is most of the stuff I will mention). They're at least 20 years ahead of anything we've ever seen technology wise. I'd give you specific examples, but I... forgot lol! It's been that way for a long time though.

Okay, this is the part where I'd stopped... Not even sure where I was going now lmao!

Okay, so the basic picture is they're putting out facts because they want people to fight the system. The people pulling the strings are practically invisible, and they know us better than we know ourselves in certain ways... In other words, they pretty much have everything controlled, and whoever we fight are not going to be the main players. It'll be our governments, our corporations, our police, our military... We'll fight ourselves before we fight them. Because we're pretty much operating from a feeling of anger & frustration bed by all the information that's leaked & what happened to the economy. Oh, the economy was crashed on purpose as well btw. I mean there is a ton of shit you can get into really... but it's pretty much useless & might even be detrimental once you know what's really going on.

So... shit gets bad, people revolt, and then THEY offer us solutions making it seem like it's us doing it. Or a party in complete opposition to them. That's why I advised that you keep from joining any movements and things like that. Because even if the movement itself was not started by them, if it's big enough they'll infiltrate it & guide it towards a different end. They're better at all this stuff than we give them credit for. I think that's another mistake conspiracy theorists make. They think "Oh yeah, we've busted them" or "We're winning" when they have us exactly where they want us. I think now I'm just ranting lmao! Sorry... I'm on meds right now btw :/ I'm not even gonna proof read this, just ask if u want more info on something...

Oh! I forgot about this, but when I was reading this it occurred to me you might want to hear something... The whole field of psychiatry is a bs science. I wish I had some sources to point you to, but... I probably do buried somewhere in my email... But yeah, it's a bogus science. They've never cured anyone, and what they use for diagnosis is also... ridiculous. Many of the patients in mental institutions are actually victims of government mind control. Look up MK Ultra if you've never heard of it. Program never stopped. They still do it all the time. It's just more well hidden. One time this Dr (I believe a psychiatrist of some sort) conducted an experiment where he rounded up I think 8 people and told them that each was gonna go to a different mental institution around the country and he told them that the only thing they were going to say was wrong with them was they heard a voice in their head. Well, a specific word, but that was it. Other than that they were supposed to act completely normal. So they all went, including himself, to a different place, and they all got accepted. They took a series of tests and even though the only thing that should've been an oddity was the fact that they heard that voice/word in their heads. Once inside they tried to convince the staff that they were not crazy & they wouldn't let them out! No matter how normal they acted. The guy who conducted the experiment figured out that the only way to convince them was to act crazy, but act as if the treatment was helping him improve... Eventually he was let out and he got the others out. It went public & of course it didn't sit well with the industry. An institution then challenged the him to send someone else into their institution (undercover) and that next time they'd definitely spot him. Months later the institution said they'd identified I think 24 fakes (it was in the 20's)... But it turned out he hadn't sent anyone. After that they changed their system, but obviously it's still a bs system. After that is actually when they came up with ADHD & other personality disorders which are bs as well... I don't know, I thought you could do something with that info. 

What else... I feel like crap lol!

    Yep, it came out pretty scary, and I know that it sounds wildly anti-conpiracy-ish, but it needs to be a bit wacked-out for people to read it.  What I sent you was slightly less than half of your original posting, so, yes, there is more to work with.  What I am aiming for as it unfolds is two-fold.

    Narratively, it needs to feel like a discrediting of conspiracy theorists so that non-conspiracy theorists will read it thinking they will have their literal (conventional) beliefs defended by its mocking tone, but all the while is will be feeding that fear which is usually considered the fuel that drives conspiracy theorists along in their passionate drive to convince people to "wake the fuck up" and do something--which is precisely what the Powers-that-be are pushing us all to do.  I liked that you ended one of the later paragraphs with the expression "You'll keep having realization after realization."  It's like the revelations of conspiracy theory research cause an endorphin rush in much the same way that religious passions do--which goes hand in hand with your description of how this is designed to function like a religion.  The scary fear factor in the narrative stylings encourage the reader to participate with that expression rather than just see it explained.  So, the thing that is scary about it is not your words, but the dynamic narrative (slight as it is) around them.

    Literally in content, I will be having the arguments that reveal how the powers-that-be are pushing us all towards a massive reaction/revolt/uprising and the fact that spreading conspiracy theory reports (as well as following them in the endorphin-rushed frenzy) may seem like a successful effort to indict/incriminate the powers-that-be, but all it leads you to is the revolt that they are encouraging so that they can install this world government which would dissolve regionalism and cultural identity, basically turning people more into sheep than we already are.  I want to keep my research links connected to mainstream and stable sites like wikipedia (not wiki-leaks) and mainstream newsmedia websites--although I have already seen reports in the past ceasing to say what they said when they were newsworthy (in the "Social Networking & Anti-Consumerism" I found that the articles about Boycott BP's deletion did not contain the contradictory details that they contained when they were first published),

    But basically, what I wanted to portray is that conspiracy research becomes a mere endorphin rush addiction, and that common sense not guided by media hoopla will educate you better than the non-lies planted by the powers-that-be (because they know the path they will lead you on, and the facts that they feed you will only goad you into looking further in search of more endorphin-rush-based research)--realization after realization.  It just keeps you busy until you become so entranced by it that people will think you are crazy because of the way you sound before even beginning to listen to you.

    Also, here is my take on the whole movements thing.  Movements are furthered by gatherings, which become protests (however peaceful they may attempt to be), police presence results in posturing and confrontations, stand-offs result in shoving, riot-gear, rock-throwing, tear-gas, assaults, night-sticks, and eventually mass arrests.  It becomes the problem it tried to prevent.  Another difficulty with movements is that they are usually started by a particular person who has one issue, and once that person gets followers, other issues are added to the platform, somebody leader-like takes charge and makes it about his(or her) issue instead of the original issue, and it becomes something totally other than what it was when it started.  The Tea Party is a prime example of that.  The pre-Bolshevik revolutionaries started out that way--read Chernyshevsky's What's to be done?  and Dostoevsky's Devils.  The first book is piss-poor narration, but it paints a pretty picture--it's the world that Dostoevsky's characters wanted to re-invent, but the Stavrogin factor in Dostoevsky's book really gets scary after reading Chernyshevsky.

Subject: The Rosenhan Experiment

    I told my wife about the anecdotal way of portraying the Rosenhan Experiment, and it seemed to be the best way to portray it--in other words, tell the first half straight-faced with both sides presented, and then tell the second half with only the other side presented and let the reader/listener infer the conclusion from the mysterious punchline--"He hadn't sent any pseudo-patients the second time." I'll see about getting the actual Rosenhan article and reviewing it as well--it might give me better insight to the controversy.
    Three things I realized about interpolating this incident: First, it shows off very clearly the argument about institutionalization and the need to fear it. Second, it can be used to show the inappropriate relationship between the efforts of activism and the actual consequences of activism. I'm not sure how it will pan out, but I will share it with you before I post it again. Really, I'll put your reservations to rest with this. I had been concerned about your fear that I was simply dissing Conspiracy Theorists, but I wasn't sure how to turn it into a portrayal of the Oedipus thing (The attempt to run away from self-destruction results in causing it) .
    The third thing it will show off--in the way I present the polyphonic content as being spoken by different people--is how a selected portion of the facts can paint a VERY different picture than the whole truth (with ALL the facts).

So I'm guessing you posted it already? I would definitely change the wording on my part, but I might just feel that way because it was just a post on facebook... If it was for something like this I would have described it differently... & definitely would have re-worded it.

This isn't the whole thing though, right? What's everything you got?

    Sorry about sending this without any explanation, but it was after 2AM and I was quick to go to bed after hammering it out.  This section proved difficult, because of my effort to intercut the whole Rosenhan summary and the Catch-22 excerpt, and make them the stronger parts of the scene while not letting the reader forget that they are the second and third elements of it.  Also, much to my frustration, this scene used ALOT less of your original text than I did before.  I used screenshots from the movie that I got from another blogsite which discusses the film from the DVD commentary--I thought that including that last shot of Alan Arkin looking sideways from the hospital bed was especially effective right after the Rosenhan summary comes to an end.  I fixed a few typoes and made a few slight changes this morning.  Let me know what you think--I'll post it tonight.

The third part, texted out
Saturday, November 12, 2011, 9:28 PM

     Here is the third part of the article, fully fleshed out.  I probably won't post it until Sunday Night, but I'll review it for typos and errors on Monday.  So, even if you can't suggest your desired revisions until Monday, I will still be able to make those corrections when I re-upload my revisions.  It's coming out a bit rougher than I had hoped, but I would like to give some more shine when I present Dr. Blight's hypothesis behind the study involving the Escaped Lunatic.  So, you will see in Part Four that only Dr. Blight sees the Escaped Lunatic as crazy, and even that can be suggested as a means to an end instead of a professional diagnosis.  I've been thinking about looking for a picture to use in this one, and all I can come up with is to find a picture of the Twin Towers, but I don't feel quite so right about that.  As with Part Two, highlight the segments that you do not like, and suggest in a separate email (or above the entire text) what it is that you don't like about the segment--you can even suggest what the rewrite should say.  But don't just give me an uneasiness based on a vague desire to reword it somewhere (without specifying where).  Tell me where.

Hey ... So sorry I haven't gotten back to you. To be honest I haven't read the last portions you sent me. I don't know if you know, but I do real estate on the side. I recently started working with a couple of investors & they're working me pretty hard. So whenever I have time I usually just lay back and say stupid things on fb or something of the sort lmao! I haven't really been doing any research/reading, etc... After so much paperwork the last thing I wanna do is read into something. But I hadn't written back because I was going to wait until I read it to get back to you.

As far as what you said about you coming out & saying it... My point was that what I wrote was a stupid rant. Just trying to open peoples' eyes so they could look further into the fact that even though the media's all bs and there's a whole system in place designed to feed us bs, it doesn't necessarily mean that the explanation they've gotten of what's really going on behind the veil is the truth. It's the only explanation they've been handed so they've chosen to run with it.

Really what I meant was just that in the context of what you're doing... I mean if I was to write it as the lunatic in the story I would have written it completely different. Because l think (& I might be wrong, but this is the way I would have done it) that you're trying to convey the message that "Hey, this guy is probably not as crazy at he sounds", right? To the audience? But there are certain phrases, or words in it that kind of give the impression that... Yeah, he probably is just crazy... lol! So I would have definitely tweaked it.

I will get to it eventually though.

Okay, I was afraid that you were horribly offended by it.  I'm so relieved, because I wasn't looking forward to a massive rewrite.  Okay, so I get the feeling that I kinda did portray the intent that you wanted, that not everything out there is truthful--or literally factual--and on the other hand, most of the stuff out there is real, it's just got spin on it.  And it needed to make the Escaped Lunatic seem crazy so that the reader would trust the label, and then in the fourth part (the part you haven't read yet) his insanity gets debunked and it turns out that the doctor has used the label of "insane" improperly.  But what bothers you is that the Escaped Lunatic actually does sound a little insane.  Okay, gimme the tweaks (when you get around to it) and I'll make the changes--judiciously--when I put the whole article in its own page.  I still have to get them to find Saint Sixedog (a character from the Behemoth Saga) and get him released from the hospital and then do the Tilapia Fricassee thing which will result in the Reality-show portrayal (which I will conclude by having one of the characters getting assassinated in the TV broadcast--that should be highly controversial).  Just remember, the Homeless Man is crazier than the Escaped Lunatic!

  But, yeah, Real Estate stuff.  Yep, that's a pile of paperwork.  I can understand your aversion to more reading when doing that kind of stuff.  Take your time, my friend.  It's getting harder and harder to finish this having the reportable content staying connected to the storyline, so I'll be working this out for some time anyway.  Besides, I still need to write the Bank Recon essay before people start looking into my other blog and finding it empty.

P.S.  I noticed that you haven't bought a copy of Mangled Doves yet!  Christmas is just around the corner--perfect time to share pictures of the peace dove getting shot with an arrow!

I'll bet that it's weird to receive an email with your own words in it, so here goes:

Damn, enter key! I wasn't done... I do want to clarify something I'm not sure I did before... It wasn't "Anti-conspiracy theorists"...

I mean anti conspiracy theorist usually implies you're "for" the government, and that's not the case at all. The information is all there if you ever look into that stuff. It's the direction most people are going with it. These are mainly people who didn't even know what a conspiracy theorist was until all this information started coming out. The people who had the information pretty much "handed to them". Someone shared something, or it was a popular or featured video on youtube, etc. These aren't the guys who researched anything before 9/11. They're the ones who got the "formatted" story, in a way.

All in all it was an attempt at explaining to these people that the information can be factual, but that doesn't mean they have the concept right. Or the story, or direction. & I'm not sure how well you understand that, but for example, you will find that most conspiracy theorists (nowadays) support Ron Paul. They actually think that THAT'S the answer. Or at least part of it. Missing the whole point completely. They're actually helping the agenda.

Anyway, I guess if you get that, you get it. No need for me to keep writing on it lol!

The Actual Conspiracy Theorist Rant, Part One

This is for all conspiracy theorists. I'm not sure how everyone's going to take this or how many of you know (I don't really hear much talk about it) and I'm not sure how in-depth I want to go on a wall post about it, but either way... Keep an open mind. You might react to this the same way people react to you when you talk to them about conspiracies...

It was all a setup. The plan was/is to get people to revolt so that they can impose a police state, or a "new world order". I'll attempt to explain (if I confuse you or if you have something to say go ahead & say it, I'm not the best at explaining things so... my bad).

Why do you think so much information started “leaking” out? You think it was whistle blowers and whoever, but in reality it was purposely put out there. Or “let” out. There have been people speaking against the system for a really long time. All of a sudden (after 9/11) all this stuff (some of it which had been suppressed for many years) starts coming out?? As “conspiracy theorists” most of us fail to realize or to look into certain things. One of the things we tend to overlook is how much control the PTB's really have. And it's right in front of our faces. How many times have we heard that all major/mainstream media is owned by the same small group of individuals? Yet you see information slowly making its way into CNN, ABC, FOX and the like, & websites owned by major media companies and we think that they don't want this information to get out??? Do you know how controlled all that stuff is??? If they don't want it out, it's not getting out. At least not at that scale.

So basically what's happening is this whole conspiracy thing has been engineered to function somewhat like a religion. Where they feed you certain facts (things that are true), but they twist the story around. Or they just tell you half the story. Or twisted facts. I mean a lot of the information is actually true. Only the facts though, not so much the story behind them or what is really going on “with” these facts, or the real reasons behind them. And if you notice most conspiracy theorists have pretty much the same beliefs and the same mentality (you're being programmed just like everyone else). Pay attention to that. I started realizing this when I ran across a couple of friends of mine who had gotten into all this. I realized we were pretty much going down the same track, learned about the same things, and ended up with the same views. You learn about HAARP, underground bases, aliens, chemtrails, the intervention theory, international bankers, the fed, AIDS, vaccines, shit they put in our food & water, the list goes on and on and on and on... Another thing you notice is, just like religious people, we tend to start thinking we're better than other people, and even if not so much “better” we tend to look down upon or feel somewhat hostile towards people because they won't “open their eyes” or they'll refuse to listen or to look into anything.

One huge giveaway (that it was all set up) was the whole 911 thing, which is what jump-started this whole “movement” or whatever you want to call it (don't join any “movements” btw, don't even get me started on that)...

Nobody thinks about why or how they could have been so stupid to leave so much evidence behind. They could pull off an operation of that scale perfectly, but they can't cover up their tracks? It was stupid. Understand that mind control has been at the top of their list ever since Egyptian times. By now they know how we work and how many categories of people there are (psychological categories), and what percentage of the population fits what category and all that.

What I'm trying to get at is the way they planted the evidence (and/or left the evidence behind) they knew that only the people close to it would pick up on it. And how (with THEIR assistance) the information would be then filtered out to the general public. AND they knew that initially a small percentage of people would pick up on it and run with it. Most people wouldn't. Little by little that starts growing and eventually (at least this was the plan) people would start a revolution.
They scare people into thinking that things are gonna get really bad. Like people are gonna be shot in front of our homes and dragged into concentration camps and all our privacy is being stripped away so that we react and want to do something about it (another thing is they know full well that not all people are going to revolt LOL! It wouldn't work that way. I mean they have their hardcore TV addicted zombies that are never gonna change)... Where was I...
Also note how more and more instances of police brutality are being deliberately shown to the public. They want to enrage people.
If you're smart enough you know that “fighting” the system will never work. The system will fall apart when everyone wakes up and does absolutely nothing. & they need resistance to bring about change. If they can't get people to revolt it's gonna be really hard to transition us into a new world order or a police state. Note also how many movies have been put out throughout time where there's an underground society, in many films it's actually called “the resistance”, who fights the system and wins. So picture (this is just hypothetical) a huge riot. & if you've researched what happened to president Chavez you know that more than likely it would be instigated by the CIA. CIA personnel are strategically placed (posing as civilians) in certain spots to do certain things (maybe they “accidentally” shoot an old lady during the riot or something). What happens after that? No more guns for the general public. Just like that.
Of course the plan is much bigger than that. Another huge “tool” they've been using is the FED. The monetary system as it exists really can't hold up much longer. We're not the only country who has a central bank lol! It's at the point where they have to introduce a new type of system. How to do that? Make it seem like “the people” did it. Give the people a politician (Ron Paul?) who speaks against this instead of having the system collapse by itself and have people WAKE THE FUCK UP and actually take matters into their own hands and do something about it, and support him and see what solutions he has to offer and back all his decisions up (just because you think he's a good guy). Problem/reaction/solution.
Always look at 2 sides of the coin. & always look further. Take that advice. I went years without wanting to listen to anything that went against what I thought I was uncovering. Again, most of the actual facts are true. And yes, some things are pretty fucked up. And there will be instances where people get arrested (& worse) for merely speaking against the government, but this is to hold up the belief that there's something really wrong going on here, and to get people angry. I can tell you that a lot of conspiracy theories have flaws. Big ones. And you should look into these flaws. I seriously dropped all my “conspiracy” research maybe a couple of years ago, but before then I researched a lot. So if you want to attempt to debunk this or you have a question as to why something is going on & how it fits in this whole thing we can get into it for a bit.

For now just remember that anyone going around “scaring” people is just playing into their game. Whether they know it or not. They have their players (like Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, and all the “known” conspiracy theorists), and they also have their puppets. The ones who are fed information without knowing that they're actually helping the agenda by feeding all these facts to the public. Anyone who advises people to fight are supporting their agenda (knowingly or unknowingly). Movements and movies that got a fuckload of attention (like 911 truth movement, zeitgeist, loose change, etc) are all part of the same agenda as well.
Dig deep and you'll find MANY things that will make you think. You'll find flaws left and right. There are A LOT of them... I mean once you start seeing what's going on you realize how much shit doesn't make sense and how much of it actually does, so you'll keep having realization after realization.

Also, fuck I just realized I skipped some stuff... I don't know how many of you have gotten into any of this type of stuff (& if you haven't after reading this section you'll probably think I'm full of shit now lmao!)...
Okay, the system is designed to keep you within a certain frequency range, because that's the frequency range that their systems have been designed to work with. So they can easily control you when you're within that range. Radiowaves, television, & HAARP (via elf waves) among other things, affect our frequencies. The news media gathers up the worst shit around the world and conveniently places it all in one spot, all in front of your face, and (being that TV was originally designed to keep you in a trance or hypnotic state) this helps keep you at that frequency. Being scared and/or worried keeps you trapped in a certain frequency range and keeps you trapped in this whole matrix that they have control of. So yet another purpose for this whole fear-mongering campaign to keep people afraid from the government & the illuminati, and the ruling families and so on and so forth, is to keep you vibrating at a certain frequency. And if you believe there was going to be a massive collective conscious awakening or whatever (I'm 100% sure I believe it or not), this would make it harder for that to happen as well. In my opinion there are things worth looking into, but there are so many lies out there. It's like they've manufactured a story for anything you try to get into, and since you don't know any better & nobody's ever talked to us about any of this shit we run with it. Remember something only has to be repeated 3 times for you to start believing it. Whether it's true or not.
