The conspiracy to end all conspiracies

Post by ryanM » Thu Apr 19, 2018 3:30 am

People of Earth (and beings from other realms who visit DW),

I see the great conspiracy unwinding. Flat Earthers have been found out. See, conspiracy movements are typically fringe and receive much public criticism. Lizard aliens, the Illuminati, and the new world order are some common ones. Currently, it's the flat earthers that have gained a lot of spotlight in the public eye. This is, however, not your typical conspiracy.

Flat Earthers are considered bonkers to the majority of the human population. A conspiracy so ludicrous that it is disregarded without much thought. However, this is where the rubber meets the road. Through months of intense investigation (ok, not actually) I've concluded that the flat earth conspiracy is contained within a much more malicious conspiracy.

The TRUTH is that the government manufactured the "flat earth conspiracy" to delegitimize legitimate conspiracies. This can be the only explanation.

Be free, friends.

Quoting Fox Mulder from memory: People will sooner believe in aliens rather than consider the possibility that their own government is abusing them.

I actually heard a much better one:

Chemtrails are actually produced by government planes secretly spraying science-dust into the atmosphere, onto which they will project a facsimile of an alien invasion, which will actually be a false-flag 'attack', with the intention of scaring the populace of the world into accepting the New World Order, which is, of course, controlled by the Illuminati, who are the Lizard People, who originate on 'planet' Nibiru.

I think it gets all of them under one roof :)

"Does Master Gotama have any position at all?"

"A 'position,' Vaccha, is something that a Tathagata has done away with. What a Tathagata sees is this: 'Such is form, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is perception...such are fabrications...such is consciousness, such its origination, such its disappearance.'" - Aggi-Vacchagotta Sutta

That's not a bad theory. It's baffling how many people believe the Earth is flat. Or pretend to believe... :spy:

When talking about conspiracies, we have to consult the expert





in order to see the big picture

"He turns his mind away from those phenomena and, having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.' " - Jhana Sutta

So how you get to know that earth is round via insight?
Have to see cause and effect, there is a link between the former state of earth and its current state. Earth isn't round or anything else.... to know the impermanent shape then have to know the cause and effect with name and form.

Taking a picture from cosmos or measuring it some other means, i think it is not the way of knowing things through what could carry on to next life or when you have memory loss.

Got to get connection to earth being and ask her. I suspect its more complicated than getting to know what for eyes are besides looking at objects.

The conspiracy to end all conspiracies will be the conspiracy that general AI develops that we are not even capable of finding out about or perhaps even comprehending.

“The period of time occupied by organic intelligence is just a thin sliver between early life and the long era of the machines.” - Lord Martin Rees

"I don't envision a single thing that, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about such suffering & stress as the mind. The mind, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about suffering & stress."

Flat, round, hollow.

Person who thinks earth is round, isn't that wrong thinking? "what is".
There is no self, there is a self, neither this nor that.

Ok person has a big nose, true, but that is wrong view because he subscribe to what is.

http://www.palicanon.org/en/sutta-pitak ... cloak.html

budhist version of genesis.
10. ‘There comes a time, Vasettha, when, sooner or later after a long period, this world contracts.825 At a time of contraction, beings are mostly born in the Abhassara Brahma world. And there they dwell, mind-made, feeding on delight, self-luminous, moving through the air, glorious — and they stay like that for a very long time. But sooner or later, after a very long period, this world begins to expand again. At a time of expansion, the beings from the Abhassara Brahma world, [85] having passed away from there, are mostly reborn in this world. Here they dwell, mind-made, feeding on delight, self-luminous, moving through the air, glorious826 — and they stay like that for a very long time.

11. ‘At that period, Vāseṭṭha, there was just one mass of water, and all was darkness, blinding darkness. Neither moon nor sun appeared, no constellations or stars appeared, night and day were not distinguished, nor months and fortnights, no years or seasons, and no male and female, beings being reckoned just as beings.827 And sooner or later, after a very long period of time, savoury earth828 spread itself over the waters where those beings were. It looked just like the skin that forms itself over hot milk as it cools. It was endowed with colour, smell and taste. It was the colour of fine ghee or butter, and it was very sweet, like pure wild honey.
12. ‘Then some being of a greedy nature said: “I say, what can this be?” and tasted the savoury earth on its finger. In so doing, it became taken with the flavour, and craving arose in it.829 Then other beings, taking their cue from that one, also tasted the stuff with their fingers. They too were taken with the flavour, and craving arose in them. So they set to with their hands, breaking off pieces of the stuff in order to eat it. And [86] the result of this was that their self-luminance disappeared. And as a result of the disappearance of their self-luminance, the moon and the sun appeared, night and day were distinguished, months and fortnights appeared, and the year and its seasons. To that extent the world re-evolved.
13. ‘And those beings continued for a very long time feasting on this savoury earth, feeding on it and being nourished by it. And as they did so, their bodies became coarser,830 and a difference in looks developed among them. Some beings became good-looking, others ugly. And the good-looking ones despised the others, saying: “We are better-looking than they are.” And because they became arrogant and conceited about their looks, the savoury earth disappeared. At this they came together and lamented, crying: “Oh that flavour! Oh that flavour!” And so nowadays when people say: “Oh that flavour!” when they get something nice, they are repeating an ancient saying without realising it.
14. ‘And then, when the savoury earth had disappeared, [87] a fungus831 cropped up, in the manner of a mushroom. It was of a good colour, smell, and taste. It was the colour of fine ghee or butter, and it was very sweet, like pure wild honey. And those beings set to and ate the fungus. And this lasted for a very long time. And as they continued to feed on the fungus, so their bodies became coarser still, and the difference in their looks increased still more. And the good-looking ones despised the others ... And because they became arrogant and conceited about their looks, the sweet fungus disappeared. Next, creepers appeared, shooting up like bamboo..., and they too were very sweet, like pure wild honey.
Earth was prolly round but sunlight shone straight through till the earth ground started to form. So it gave a possibilty that the beings who also started to develop form could see the reflected light to see/know forms.

A flat earth convention was recently held in the UK.

Here is their explanation for why we don't fall off the edge:
One of the more interesting pieces of evidence came from speaker Darren Nesbit, who referred to the "Pac-Man effect" as the reason why planes don't fall off the edge of a flat Earth, according to the science news website Physics-Astronomy.org. When a plane or other object reaches the edge of the horizon, such as when Pac-Man reaches the end of the screen, that object will teleport from one side of the planet to the other, a la Pac-Man entering from the other side of the screen.
