- We want to believe someone else is to blame for everything bad in our lives.
It's someone else's fault. We want to be victims because it's easier than taking responsibility for our own actions. We want to believe there's a Them so we can continue avoiding changing Us. You already know how I feel about this mindset.
- The conspiracy is actually true... and we don't want to be the last
person to know about it.
At PodCamp Nashville yesterday I heard the term FOMO which is perfect: the Fear Of Missing Out. I've been thinking about this (and conspiracy theories in general) lately because last week my older brother sent some info my way about chemtrails. I did some reading and thought it was really interesting but inconclusive. Then on Friday, on our way back from Georgia to visit our sys admin and our visiting Russian developer, I saw some things in the sky that totally freaked me out. It reminded me of sky writers the way it turned on and off so quickly. I watched the planes create the first two lines and snapped this photo as a third was being created.
- We have this deep, unsettling feeling that something simply isn't
right with reality as we know it.
I probably fall into this category more than any other because of my world view. The Matrix, Inception, Dark City, and The Thirteenth Floor are among my favorite movies. I feel like we all need to "wake up," take the red pill, and embrace the true reality of eternity with (or separate from) our Creator. I'm talking about the restoration of creation since the fall of man through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I think there is an ultimate conspiracy going on at this very moment to blind us from the truth which is why every other conspiracy we hear has a familiar feel to it. You may completely disgree or have a different world view altogether and that's OK, we can still be friends.
Why do you like them?
