‘The world is a stage’, the saying goes.

Lately, I’ve been more acutely aware of something that had been prodding at my mind for a while: but that I hadn’t quite put my finger on properly. Specifically, the idea that a fake or ‘scripted’ reality is playing out all over the place – and that this scripted ‘reality’ is populated by actors merely playing parts.

In short, what I’m asking here is ‘are we now stuck in a reality TV show’? Is our collective consciousness being reconfigured into a reality-tv format?

In fact, I’ve been trying to write an article on a broader subject (Scripted Reality) for some time now – and have as-yet declined to publish it, because I can’t quite get my thoughts together coherently.

But watching the frankly weird spectacle of millionaire rap star Kanye West and millionaire US President Donald Trump in the White House rather powerfully triggered me back to this subject. I want to talk about Kanye West and also the ‘Kardashians’ (I’m so sorry) and where they came from: and why this is all so weird (and why it has troubling implications).

In doing so, I also want to talk about the very nature of ‘truth’, ‘reality’ and perception – and what the term ‘post-truth’ might actually end up meaning.

For starters, the footage of the eccentric rapper’s staged twenty-minute conversation with the President strikes me as one of the most bizarre moments so far of the Donald Trump presidency and its accompanying reality-TV freak-show (click on the image to go see the video, if you haven’t seen it already).

And it again forces me to ask whether this all is a reality TV show now – albeit, one that’s been transplanted (with the help of both the media and the ‘viewing public’) onto a broader perception of ‘reality’ with far bigger implications for society, intelligence levels, general perception and collective consciosuness.

It’s a curious error; assuming it was an error at all – and it might’ve cost someone in admin their job.

A couple of weeks ago, an odd story popped up in the media very briefly. It came when a journalist put in a request via the Freedom of Information Act. The journalist in question had been researching far-right and far-left militant groups. Bizarrely, Curtis Waltman – working for Boston’s MuckRock – received back documents that had nothing to do with the requests he’d submitted or the subject he was researching.

What actually came through has turned out to be something of a gift to conspiracy theorists and researchers, validating what any number of people have been claiming for many years.

According to the Daily Mail’s report on the story, “…In what sounds like a plot from the X-files, they revealed research into bizarre ‘psycho-electronic’ weaponry. These claim to use electromagnetic forces to achieve their aims, including inducing intense pain, itching or even rigor mortis.

The US government accidentally sent the reporter information describing ‘remote mind control’, ‘remote brain mapping’, ‘forced memory blanking’, and other effects that have been a staple of conspiracy theories for decades now. (more…)

This is just a short one; and is really just an anecdote and not anything important.

But the most random, odd thing happened to me a couple of weeks back. It was on the day my grandfather passed away – in fact, it was just a few minutes before my grandfather passed away and it took place in the hospital. (more…)

And it is a pretty big rabbit-hole – based entirely on the location where this incident is said to have happened.

Which we will get to in a moment; and then you can decide for yourselves how relevant you think it is or isn’t. But first, let’s just do the basics.

In another month, I would’ve assumed or accepted that the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal was – as we’re being told – a hit by Russian intelligence operatives.

My own personal opinion is still – and I know that this puts me at odds with most conspiracy theory writers – that Alexander Litvenenko was assassinated by Russian agents via pollonium poisoning. Most of what I’ve read over the years (from various sources) makes me inclined to lean towards that explanation. (more…)

Three men were charged two weeks ago with the murder of the Maltese investigative journalist/blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was murdered in a car bomb on the 16th October.

George and Alfred Degiorgio, aged 55 and 53, and Vincent Muscat, 55, who have all pleaded not guilty. They are also accused of possessing the bomb-making materials and weapons.

Galizia, who had been a journalist for various publications, ran the Running Commentary blog in Malta, which for many years investigated and reported corruption among various politicians and high-profile figures. (more…)

The riddle of the Roman ‘ghost legions’ is one of the most fascinating anomalies or urban legends around, particularly in Britain.

As it’s that time of the year, I want to briefly come back into this area – particularly for how the mystery of the spectral legions can also lead us into questions about the nature of time, space, consciousness and reality.

Previously, I posted a piece about ghost stories and traditions from the Roman world. This time, I wanted to focus in on something much more specific: the so-called Phantom Legions. (more…)

Having reiterated the general case for Princess Diana (and Dodi Fayed) having been assassinated, there has also for a long time now been a case to be made – as hinted at yesterday – for the assassination having also been a ritual/sacrifice possibly designed to speak to veiled occult interests.

Although I often urge caution when dealing with subjects like this, concerning the Princess of Wales’s death specifically this idea has always appeared to carry some weight.

This idea, which has gathered a lot of steam over the years, centers on the fact that the site of the car accident was once the site of a temple to the goddess Diana; and, according to some, was a location of underground chambers where ritual sacrifices used to be carried out (to the goddess Diana; and established by Merovingians some time between 500 – 750 AD).

In Roman mythology, Diana – representative of the Sacred Feminine – was the goddess of nature, childbirth, hunting and the protector of the weak. She was also equivalent to (and linked with) the Egyptian goddess Isis.

The limo also happened to crash into the thirteenth pillar of the tunnel – which appears to have all kinds of significance in terms of the Merovingians (see here, for example – I’m not necessarily endorsing everything that other people have written, but simply asserting the fact that the 13th pillar seems very signficant in a way that is difficult to ignore).

On the matter of Grace Kelly (pictured above with Diana and Charles), I’ll come to that at the end and explain why I think it may be relevant. (more…)

Just an add-on here to some of what I was talking about yesterday.
The more I look at the entire paradigm, the stranger it gets and the more I wonder if we’re trapped in a kind of weird reality TV show.

I use the term ‘reality TV show’ not just because the US President is a former reality TV star; but because the term ‘reality TV’ doesn’t, strictly speaking, denote a ‘fake’ reality, but a kind of staged production that nevertheless purports to be showing us a true reality (even though, in many cases, a reality TV show isn’t showing us a true reality at all).

In the previous article, I was talking about how some of the alt-right opinion-makers and figureheads are probably psy-op merchants, helping to advance a divide-and-conquer agenda by brainwashing gulible people. (more…)

The YouTube video I embedded into the post yesterday on the London Bridge attack CCTV footage no longer exists – the video was obviously taken down some time before or after I posted the article.

The footage I was trying to link to, as I explained in the previous post, showed a different, longer version of the CCTV footage to the version that was shown on mainstream outlets and most YouTube channels.

The version that most channels/websites are showing is a shortened version, which omits the following segment that I alluded to yesterday. (more…)
