This link is to a rather long piece at the website Calcified Lies. The reading was, for me, difficult, and I intend to take another shot at it.It was supplied to us by [Annette and then] Inside Baseball under the Boston Marathon post below.
I was unable to find the name of the author.
The subject at hand is the depth of illusion as we are presented with one public hoax after another. It appeared to me in the Marathon post that we were deliberately given photos that easily proved that the event was fake while at the same time being graphic enough to show the public that the event was real. They appear to be coming at us from two angles. Are we all under house management?
The author of this piece obviously has impressive cognitive abilities, but his ability to translate his insight into digestible prose comes up short. Maybe it is just me, maybe others do not have this problem. Nonetheless, it is worthy of the effort to read it, perhaps twice.
