I'm not that active here, but noticed this post title.
In the past, for many years, I used to ridicule people like @OutsideTheBoxHK having such highly unconventional theories.
I used to think, again for many years, people with such theories were smoking pot all day and drinking beer.
However, at my University years I got acquainted with a fellow student who was very obscure. I used to respect the guy due to his class and extreme knowledge about the financial markets. He started trading at the age of 13.
He used to share some very superficial hard to understand message online. At some point it became way too clear he was a member of a secret society which I used to read about online but laughed at for years. Suddenly I was not laughing anymore. If these secret elite societies were real than what about the rest of those ridiculous conspiracy theories?
I was about to finish my 3rd master degree at Uni and thought I had all the skills to research what else is true about those ridiculous conspiracy theories. I went to the source, well prepared, and a very frightening research ensued. The most scary and ridiculous theories turned out to be true. I did hear things straight from the mouth of members of these societies.
I realized that I had become the excrement of highly successful educational system designed by only a few big industrialists. I was looking at the world from this en-trained 'rational' thinking glasses that only made me look rational to the walls of the big box I was in, what others might refer to as the 'system'.
Specifically, I can't say I agree with everything @OutsideTheBoxHK stated. I haven't researched each of his claims in a scientifically sound way. But I do know certain things he claimed are 100% fact.
Because I know for fact that certain things he mentioned are true, does not mean I just assume the rest will be/or might be true as well. I only stick to what I can verify in a scientifically sounds manner.
I wrote this to make sure well educated people here don't make the same mistake I did in the past for quite some time. Don't laugh at seemingly absurd theories.
