I am not sure if you are aware of a widely unknown secretive conspiracy theory that has been around for the past couple of years.
Few are aware of its ramifications and others would be appalled if they knew of the length and breadth at which this theory has been hidden from the public.
I only learned of it myself in the past few months and am still in a state of shock at how far flung the idea that such a thing could be hidden so well and yet no one has offered a better alternative solution to the issue.
The most unusual part of this conspiracy theory is that it has not shown up in any of the tabloids that seem to always be on the cutting edge and always in search of the truth to absurd events.
My first experience with conspiracy theories and my hesitancy to write about this particular one started in my own family.
My grandmother was convinced that men never walked on the moon, but in a television studio made up to look like the moon.
Neil Armstrong was talking into a microphone in a sound booth when he made his famous “One Step” comments.
We all know now he was on the moon when he spoke those words.
Before that, I remember being told that if I played one of my Beatle records backwards it would relay a satanic message.
Personally, I was afraid to try it in fear of being turned into some kind of a demon.
My efforts to get my brother Eddie to do it failed as well. I figured it was not that big a jump for him.
A friend did play one backwards and the only thing he heard was what sounded like, “clean up your room,” so he threw the record away.
My recent discovery of this new-found conspiracy theory has left me dumbfounded and without a logical argument.
It is hard to explain this particular theory as it has many facets.
The short version of this theory is that all conspiracy theories are neither right nor wrong.
It is based upon the idea that we actually live in and out of parallel universes.
The conspiracy element of this theory is that those universes are based upon good and evil, thus the conspiracy theories concerning government intervention into
our lives, assassination, and moon walks may have some validity, depending on the universe you happen to be in at the time.
What we see as absurd today in this universe is actually a fact in another universe.
As with all theories, there needs to be either proof that it is true or proof that it is not true.
In this case neither one can be proven or disproved, which makes this theory even that much more provocative.
One explanation of this theory often used is deja vu: having an experience for the first time and thinking you have seen or experienced it before.
Like I said before, I am surprised this has not been outed before.
At some point in the future I plan to write about the conspiracy theory I learned about when I visited New York City.
I was riding a bus down to Manhattan when this guy pulled me to the side and told me he knew why the school test scores were so low.
We should not allow contractions in the English language, he told me, Contractions are vulgar and a product of the devil, he said.
By the way there are no contractions in this column, just in case he was right.
