The Concept of the Ghost in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

Entertainment, Ghosts

[MAJOR SPOILERS ahead] To my chagrin, one of the early subplots of Christopher Nolan’s scifi epic Interstellar involves a young girl, Murph, who is convinced there is a ghost in her room. She explains to her father, Cooper, played by Matthew McConaughey, that the ghost frequently pushes books off the bookshelf in her room. Cooper, […]

The 4 Possible Types of Parallel Universes…and Can We Visit Them

Science, Unexplained

By Jake Anderson In the last decade, parallel universes–a thought experiment once reserved for geeks on rainy (or sunny) weekends–has become something of buzzword, up there with dark matter and time travel in its capacity to captivate. It used to be that no one actually believed in parallel universes, they just thought it was cool […]

Robocop and Hollywood Drone Propaganda

Conspiracy, Entertainment

The newest line of Hollywood propaganda is a strange combination of pro-drone military and corporate influence. Major media conglomerates and government agencies have an invested interest in selling the idea of domestic drones and AI controlled military police forces. This is big money for the still-pubescent drone surveillance industry as well as the military industrial […]

Your Grandchildrens’ Descendents Will Live In A Dyson Sphere–Just Like the Aliens Do

Aliens, Science

Featured image by Julian Aguilar Faylona Barring a mass extinction of the human race–which, of course, is completely plausible–our technological progress will likely continue to grow exponentially, making the chances of a technological Singularity quite good.

Aliens, AI, Alex Jones, and the New World Order

Aliens, Conspiracy, Entertainment

Fermi Paradox be damned, our gut instinct is that there are many advanced extraterrestrial civilizations flourishing beyond our solar system. In a universe containing hundreds of billions of galaxies, each one containing hundreds of billions of stars, to believe otherwise is just plain odd. But it could take a while for us to meet ET. […]

The Future of Fear: Horror Movies In 50 years

Entertainment, Horror Movies

We love horror movies. We also love futurism and overwrought speculation. With transhumanism and the Singularity entering the mainstream–much to the chagrin of its esoteric handlers–we found ourselves trying to imagine what horror movies would be like in 50 years. By then technology will have evolved to near incomprehensible levels and the entertainment industry will […]

Long-Awaited AI Directed Horror Film Full Of Zombie Cliches

Entertainment, Zombies

Every once in a while a film comes along that is so ground-breaking, so cinematically revolutionary, so awe-inspiringly vital that all you can do is sit back, take a deep breath, and say “wow.” The Future Dead is not one of those films. Despite the fever pitch fanfare and sociological hysteria accompanying the release of […]

Life in the Matrix: New Evidence Supports the Simulation Theory

Science, Unexplained

By Jake Anderson Nick Bostrom has become somewhat of a cult celebrity in fringe circles for his authorship of the Simulation Theory. This theory supposes that because of the overwhelming likelihood of technological singularities occurring in the universe, it is quite likely that advanced civilizations–either us in the future, or aliens in a distant galaxy–have […]

Mysterious Vertical Structure Detected In Center of Nearby Black Hole

Unexplained

Astrophysicists studying a black hole known as Swift J1357.2-0933 say they have discovered a mysterious structure. It is shaped like a torus spouting out both sides of the doughnut-shaped galaxy’s center. This particular study marked the first ever ‘view’ of a black hole from a 75% inclination, which means this could very well be the […]

6 Reasons Aliens Don’t Need Spaceships

Aliens

When we think of aliens, we think of spaceships. In fact, it’s hard to even conjure alien images outside the context of their monumental starships soaring through the solar system, or their flying saucers hovering above the White House lawn. But it just may be that aliens have no need for one of the most […]

Dark Matter and Aliens–Is There A Connection?

Aliens, Unexplained

If you’re like us, you’ve probably laid in bed at night wondering, “Where are all the aliens?” Radio astronomer Frank Drake once estimated that there are 10,000 advanced civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy alone. This calculation is known as the Drake equation. Carl Sagan upped the number to a million. And these figures are […]
