DEF CON 22 – Richard Thieme – The Only Way to Tell the Truth is in Fiction

by Matt Cole

This talk on the 2014 DefCon has a ring of truth to it. “Fiction is the only way to tell the truth.”

Interestingly, I have heard this same message through other channels. This is why you see the same themes throughout Hollywood entertainment, and how synchronicities are made.

In other words, their bodies responded not to reality, but to what they were imaging as reality. pg 88

The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot

This is the same message found in Michael Talbot’s book, The Holographic Universe. We only know what is projected to us. The idea and their version of the truth is propagated onto us. I really like how Richard Thieme said the red pill turns into the lavender pill. The concept of not able to get the full truth is scary.

You hear students in college using entertainment media as a worldview and believing it is true. This is done on purpose, as propaganda is pushed onto the public, to have them believe a certain way. Robert Rosenstone acknowledges, “the increasing presence of the visual media in modern culture and the vast increase in TV channels seems to ensure that most people now get their knowledge of the past, once school is over, from the visual media” (p. 10).

This is why we see specific story lines in the media.


Support Rollie, like you viewers keep PBS alive Bitcoin: qrk7qz2h3nr3kax22cxh7m8qsyy9demt2ynt5ql75y Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige"."
