Hello everyone. Long time lurker (reader
), newly registered poster.About Me:
Real Name: Chris/Christopher. I prefer Chris, but either is fine. And I have no qualms about being called by my real first name on forums, so feel free if you so wish.
Username: The_Thinker. Based after 'The X-Files' minor character who went by the same alias.
Location: I live in the county of Kent, in the UK.
Background/Education/Career: I have an extensive background in media and digital media, film studies and film making (in fact, it is in some part due to my understanding of film, sound and editing that I quite easily was able to realise that the videos, photos and imagery from 9/11 are wholly fake and doctored. More on that later...). I have studied a GNVQ, BTEC National Diploma and BA (Honours) in these subjects and have written and directed a fair few short films and entered a few small time festivals. I've also worked on a few independent shorts for others (mostly as Director of Photography). When I was younger I did wish to enter into the British film industry or fund and work on indie feature films. But I have now turned my interest in these subjects into more of a hobby than a career.
I'm currently working on courses in Computing, Systems, Programming and Software Development, in order to rather quickly gain a much broader knowledge of those particular subjects so I can hopefully move into a reasonable computing career.
Research: Well, what really sparked my journey down the rabbit hole as it were was the death of Princess Diana (I had opinions on some things before that; I believed the moon landing was faked and that JFK was killed by people other than Lee Harvey Oswald. But it was that event, which truly kickstarted my research into the way the world really works, so to speak). I remember wondering when this happened why people would swallow such a suspect series of events, even those who KNEW something was up, still accepted the official line of enquiry. I remember the terrible prospect of people (in general) being truly apathetic dawning on me, and having the realisation about how easy it would be for people in powerful positions to control a populace who thought like that.
Then came 9/11. Almost instantly, I wasn't willing to swallow hook, line and sinker the idea that a lone nut and 19 other nuts had, quite literally, done the physically impossible. And so I was soon sucked into the world of Alex Jones, various 9/11 documentaries, David Icke and other shortwave pundits. Quite soon after, Jones began to grate on me. It wasn't that I disagreed entirely with what he was saying, it was more the way he was saying it. The sensationalism, the crazed outbursts, and the fear-mongering, as I had come to realise it. It just felt unhealthy for me, and as much of a distraction and distortion as anything else. It occured to me that Jones and indeed many of his clique, were as much there to discredit these ideas as they were to endorse them. People argued to me that "well, you'd be angry too, if you knew everything he knew!" but whether or not it was true, I just couldn't see the merit of having someone jumping about, shouting and screaming and generally acting like they are on crack as someone to call a leader of a movement, which I felt was very important and that also needed to be approached calmly and intelligently. NOT like a raving lunatic.
I still read and listened to some of David Icke's stuff for a while after, but I'd become increasingly wary that these people who had been placed up on pedastals as kind of 'gods' of the conspiracy world, were in fact, far from it. They left out much important information about the higher levels of power, while twisting other pieces to turn people off of the truth rather than to it.
I started to read lots of books, all I could, and discovered some of the lesser known researchers. I started to read into Zionism, and the Society Of Jesus. I bought quite a few very rare books and the more reasearch I did, the more I realised the kind of real connections that the popular shortwave pundits were leaving out of their broadcasts. Acting as nothing, but gatekeepers in reality.
Then, I'd turned my attention back to 9/11 once more, I happened to stumble across September Clues almost by chance, and as I watched, it all seemed to make sense. I almost couldn't believe how dumb I'd been. I mean, I knew it had all been set up from the word go, but why the hell hadn't I seen this before!? It just made 100% complete and perfect sense to me now! I immediately watched it again, and it was incredible to feel the layers of deceit just peeled away. It started to make sense further how even amongst the so-called Truthers, the plane question was an untouchable one. A taboo. A no-no. "Of course there were planes!" I could see why Alex Jones and the rest had continually belittled, attacked and ridiculed 'no planers' and made out that the very idea someone would even question if there were planes was absurd! It seemed so odd to me. These people like Jones who questioned everything about everything and supposedly tore apart every official story going would settle for the official story when it came to the planes! And furthermore would adamantly REFUSE to question this aspect, even when prompted! Yet more evidence to me that these people were nothing but agents working for the very agenda they claimed to be fighting.
I watched various other no plane stuff, especially everything Simon had to offer. And anything else I could find. I read the whole website and often began to glance at the forum and read what other people here were saying. Until now, I couldn't hold off from contributing when and where I can, and adding my own two cents to the discussion. So I got myself a username and here I am.
Thankyou for having me. Sorry for such a long-winded first post.
So that is me. I'm very much looking forward to being a part of this community.
