– MJ Conspiracy

31. (Dec 1) MJ Conspiracy:

TNZ: Thinking about thisisalsoit, don’t forget about Occam’s razor.

Info on Occam’s Razor:

William of Occam (or Ockham) (1284-1347) was an English philosopher and theologian. His work on knowledge, logic and scientific inquiry played a major role in the transition from medieval to modern thought. He based scientific knowledge on experience and self-evident truths, and on logical propositions resulting from those two sources. In his writings, Occam stressed the Aristotelian principle that entities must not be multiplied beyond what is necessary. This principle became known as Occam’s (or Ockham’s) Razor or the law of parsimony. A problem should be stated in its basic and simplest terms. In science, the simplest theory that fits the facts of a problem is the one that should be selected.

This rule is interpreted to mean that the simplest of two or more competing theories is preferable and that an explanation for unknown phenomena should first be attempted in terms of what is already known.

A real life example of Occam’s Razor in practice goes as follows:

Crop circles began to be reported in the 1970s. Two interpretations were made of the circles of matted grass. One was that flying saucers made the imprints. The other was that someone (human) had used some sort of instruments to push down the grass. Occam’s Razor would say that given the lack of evidence for flying saucers and the complexity involved in getting UFOs from distant galaxies to arrive on earth (unseen and traveling faster than the speed of light I suppose) the second interpretation is simplest. The second explanation could be wrong, but until further facts present themself it remains the preferable theory. As it turns out, Occam’s Razor was right as two people admitted to making the original crop figures in the 1990s (and the rest have apparently been created by copy-cats). Despite this fact, some people still ignore Occam’s Razor and instead continue to believe that crop circles are being created by flying saucers.

The simplest model is more likely to be correct–especially when we are working with unusual phenomenon.

So what are they saying… To believe that MJ has died is the easiest?  He’s gone… let’s continue on our merry way.  To believe in conspiracy, government manipulation, illuminate, etc. is a big pill to swallow.  It’s a paradigm shift in the way we think.  Many will hear the message and turn away choosing the easy path.  What will you do?  What will I do?

Will I dismiss it?  Just say, “I don’t believe in this illuminati paranoia!”

But wait… I found another thing on Occam’s Razor:

The part that got me is this: Yesterday, my colleague Simon Maloy pointed out that one of the hallmarks of conspiracy theorists is their overwhelming desire to believe in their theory in spite of any and all evidence to the contrary. An hour later, a blogger at Andrew Breitbart’s website demonstrated another such feature: a complete inability to accept a simpler, more prosaic explanation instead of an extraordinarily complicated one that ties in all of their personal hobgoblins.

Are we looking for some confusing, complicated theory that will pull everything together or is the story a simple one.

MJ is fashioning exactly what he wants us to see.  He is manipulating us, I believe, in the exact same way media manipulates us.  He is using their own tactics against them.  Please remember though, manipulation in itself is not a bad thing.  It is the motive behind the manipulation.  Media manipulates to control what we believe, often misrepresenting the truth.  MJ is manipulating to control what we believe, to guide us to the truth.

The tricky part is… is that true?  Is this MJ guiding us to the truth  or is it yet another manipulation to guide us away from a truth that we don’t yet know.  This is what many people believe and herein lies the confusion.

Bottomline, there is always going to be conflicting stories, doubts, fears, etc.

We have to choose what we believe and stand firm in that belief.

We have to make our decisions on what we believe and how we live our life on truth and we need to know where that truth comes from.

It sure as heck doesn’t come from media, however, this has been mine and many others people’s truth for years.  Back to when they televised the first man on the moon. (By the way, who really knows if that really happened?  But that’s another topic hee hee).

Some comments from TNZ’s Twitter:

  • Some theories created for examination of the people stupidity/credulity limits and for exploration how far fertile imagination would guide.
  • Don’t forget that the main clue of the game is substitution of notions then a lie becomes a truth and a truth turns into false.
  • To believe in lie or to disbelieve? To distrust in truth or to trust? The Game is above black-n-white perception.
  • To see the sense you need to treat any theory as any other within the Game METAPHORICALLY.

We got to start thinking everyone!  Who am I?  What do I believe?  What am I willing to stand for?  What is truth and what do I know to be true?
