Art can help distinguish between conspiracy and reality, and this exhibition proves it

A break down between "conspiracy" thinking and conspiracies revealed with "Rational" thinking.

“Everything Is Connected” also is the title of an exhibition about art and conspiracy at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Met Breuer gallery, a potent and intriguing show that includes several works that are similar in style and technique to the hidden history map. Mark Lombardi’s “Narrative Structure” drawings are more elegantly arranged than the rather amateurish and clotted conspiracy map, but they are similar in their use of arrows and webs of connection.

*""[They differ, however, in one fundamental way: They’re based on research and facts, not implication, speculation and fantasy."]""

...Nor, Emotion. They use emotions in the second to last paragraph: sorass is despicable but that doesn't make Trump antisemitic.

If a "Narrative" map, map of connections, turns out bogus...I wouldn't think of it as Art either, never mind, use my senses and emotion to judge it's value.

    Everything Is Connected is a concept that appears verifiable through the scientific discipline of quantum mechanics, which suggests that probabilistic wave functions provide specification for subatomic events. We are told of Schrodinger, a man who claimed A and not A are true until an observer causes quantum collapse. Poof! The cat disappears. It seems that quantum interconnectedness does not have much significance for the poor cat.

    Notice purveyors of the concept "everything is connected" do not say "everything connects to something else". It is not stated how an individual existent is connected to every other individual existent. Nor is it stated how an individual existent is connected to something that connects all individual existents. Let us state it clearly: We are connected through relative distances in space by a wave function, which is to say we are separated through relative distances in space by a wave function. Therefore, what connects us separates us. A and not A is a contradiction.

      If it ever played a role in human evolution/behavior it was prior to our awareness of our own awareness (or formally, self introspection). There are examples in the animal kingdom...so too, perhaps non conscious humans even today...especially the propagandized/programed.

      But to conscious man, we choose for the most part, our connections and I do think the mind can take advantage of the wave exchanges between entangled particles. It would make sense if it was an exchange of information. Maybe even something more sophisticated that 1s and 0s.
      Think about that: spin right, spin left, no spin or all at once...that is a lot more information than 1s and 0s.

        Interestingly, if man evolved from protohuman primates, then it must be our capacity of choice i.e. free will evolved as well. From among what choices would a man choose? Against his automatic responses. Charging at a mammoth rather than fleeing from a mammoth. Irrigating rather than chanting for precipitation. Logic rather than ritual. And so on.

        And I note that we continue to reward the brave, the industrious, and the wise. May we always continue to do so and discover further the virtues of human beings.

          Not if postmodernist via cultural marxism win the day.

          Interesting note: Humans are more likely a completely separate species. (many odd archeological and anthropological articles I have read over many years, something they are not allowed to speak of). Our many genetic commonalities with life on this planet seems to come from the same source. The clays of earth, brought here by the cosmic winds, (a more recent development/observation by NASA and space station occupants; but again, not spoken in the lamestream); but the evolutionary process would still stand as you have stated.

          Excellent observation, PC.

            You guys are too smart . I don’t quite get it all but it is fascinating. I’ll just create the art and let others Hopefully enjoy it.
            I will say Pizzagate has never been debunked even though the press claims it has been. James Alefantis Comet ping pong owner said they don’t have a basement. Case closed. Even though a year before in an article he talked about celebrating the tomato harvest down the basement with all the sauce . Oops Nevermind don’t let a lie stop the debunking.

    "Absurdity isn’t a good guide to the facticity of claims about our government and leaders, either. Yes, when the Weekly World News headline screams “Hillary Clinton Adopts Alien Baby,” most sane people will dismiss it out of hand. But what about Operation" ..."Northwoods, a secret U.S. government plan to attack U.S. cities, planes and boats and blame the violence on Cuba, to create a justification for attacking the communist regime in the 1960s?"...

    ...*"That, in fact, is true, although the plan was rejected by President John F. Kennedy."
