The problem with conspiracy theory is to believe that there is one particular group of human beings who are in control of my destiny. That’s a philosophical extreme to which I don’t wanna go. On the other side it’s obvious that people do conspire. That there are conspiracies, secret forces behind outward political shows of power. It is clear that there is not one single known politician in America who has any real power at all. They are simply working for big corporations and economic interests like oil, or the global market itself. The best model is, that there are many, at least several conspiracies and that they interlock, that they compete, that they melt into each other, that they separate from each other. If we wanna know what’s going on, if we wanna understand history as it is happening we should know something about these conspiracies. Again critical consciousness is a useful tool here. -Hakim Bey
The conspiracy theory that’s my favorite, is the one I invented myself.-Robert Anton Wilson
The problem with conspiracy theories is that, like in Borges’s metafiction, when you invent them they run the the risk of becoming true. Rupert Marduk “The Quantum Joker”
You know the CIA slang for somebody they’re using who doesn’t know he’s being used? They call that a “useful idiot”. Those writers who get exclusives from congressmen, and they have no idea the congressman is working for the CIA and the exclusive is a myth they’ve invented that they want to get into print. If the journalist takes it, they’re a useful idiot. So of course I have to ask myself occasionally, have I become a useful idiot yet? (laughs).-Robert Anton Wilson
“Nothing is true; everything is permitted- The Naked Lunch
Fedor Dostoievsky said that ” if god doesn’t exist, then everything is allowed”, which put him in an ethical crisis. But how about if we put it this way “god exists, because everything is allowed” ( or: god is everything is allowed) so everything(god the dog) is possible, and even, “god exists making all possibilities exist”. God is his own favorite conspiracy theory. In a metadata universe all code unfolds itself into real-ness. Everything one dreams, thinks or writes translates into all the languages of existence. Permanent forking paths create gardens of reality. This is the divinity inscription in page source code: our cosmic trigger.
you are dead and alive
you’ve already fucked that girl on tv
you have killed your father
you have been Tiresias
you have been Donkie Kong jr.
you have smoked crack with Alf
you have eaten more, and faster, hot-dogs than Joey Chestnut
you are having dinner with Ruslana Korshunova
you are happy
