But can we stop ourselves? We've all been listening to that damned A=440hz tuning for so long now that I fear the Nazis' attempt to cut off our spiritual connection to the universe has succeeded and the effects are now irreversible. We may be crazy for good.

RE: "Moon Hoax" Conspiracy... (in reply to Piwin

There was a story (possibly apocryphal, of course) circulating several years about a conversation overheard in Collett’s record shop in London, between a potential customer and the counter clerk:

I'd like to find some Jazz, easy to listen to.

How about Louis Armstrong?

Louis Armstrong? Wasn’t he the first man to walk on the Moon?

No, no, you’re thinking of Neil.

OK, kneel on the Moon, whatever.

Conspiracy theorists have a particular mindset that, in my opinion, defies rational explanation.


I for one love all of Kubrick’s films.

The way I see it is that the conspiracy is a beautiful intricate tapestry, woven together in an amazing heartfelt manner of connecting unrelated dots (truths, or data points, facts etc), with straight lines of correlation (a logical narrative). The deeper you get into it the more beautiful and perfect it becomes. It is a true art form IMO. The end product is like ones child, and the creators must defend it to the death. Of course incorporating other unrelated theories directly to it is no problem at all, even if challenging to do, the effort becomes more of the beauty of the work itself, however any jarring piece of evidence that might threaten the foundation of the entire masterpiece must be discarded, proven wrong, or ultimately tied in as the all pervasive “dark hidden secret cover up” lie. The work must continue....

The character portrayed by Donald Sutherland in JFK is a perfect representation of these creative entities that drive this artistic masterwork forward in time. Just listen to his dialogue, it is mesmerizing and brilliant, despite being complete fiction and violently counter to reality. I see these people not as somehow delusional or deranged, but simply as a special breed of artistic genius at work. Too bad they can’t separate their narratives from reality, but I have to give them credit for the creativity involved.

True “conspiracies” however do exist in some cases. For example the recent revelations about the Catholic Church as an entity engaged globally as an institution designed to protect and further the pursuits of Rapists from top levels down, is quite disturbing. Not to say it was so darkly covered put for a long time, however, simply the SCOPE of the thing, how many humans are involved in this, is shocking to say the least.

Speaking about Kubrick and the moon hoax, I assume you know and enjoyed "the dark side of the moon (operation lune) by William Karel.
