Mind-Bogglingly Good Article on the Issac/ CARET/ Chad Issue
In other posts, I may have laughed at the Chad “probe” photos, and questioned the provenance and issues behind the CARET posts, but Colin Bennett has done an incredible job of dissecting the issue as an example of 21st century storytelling and meme-spread.
His article at Reality Uncovered is a tour-de-force of critical thought on this issue. Bennett weaves together strands of themes from mythology, the JFK assassination, Paris Hilton, even Stanton Friedman and Marilyn Monroe. He presents a view of the post-internet world, where ideas and image are everything, and damn the “facts.” The beautifully-rendered “blueprints” presented by “Issac” are examined in detail, as he compares their intricate appearance to the work of a watchmaker.
A couple of quotes:
The question of the structure of the objective-real bedevilled Western philosophy until Plato solved the problem with his Allegory of the Cave in his book The Republic. The Allegory describes prisoners so chained and masked that they could never see a fire lit behind them. What they saw as “real” were the shadows thrown by the fire onto the cave wall in front of them. Because of their situation these shadows were interpreted by the prisoners as representing the substance and actions of the real world.
The merest fraction of a second contains an infinity of associations. Only the powerful image, and not intellect, can grasp and control this stream of consciousness. This is the reason why Paris Hilton plus SERPO and CHAD memes may in the end have far greater power than boiler-house science of MUFON.
This is a very important essay which all readers of this site should study. A whole course in 21st century communications, psychology, and sociology could be based on the SERPO/ CARET enigma.
This is one reason why I now suspect that this “probe” business is not the work of government agents, and if it is, I believe that they may have recruited private business or contractors to do the detail work. For what purpose, we may never know.
Where is Dr. Mario Pazzaglini when we need him?
