Case File 132-COVID-19

In the past few weeks, the world has witnessed the worrying spread of a global pandemic. The virus has become extremely infectious and spread to almost every country in the world at blazing speed. Scientists and doctors have been working tirelessly to devise new treatments and vaccines in order to try and slow down the rapid spread of this new disease. At this point, it may not be an exaggeration, when we say this global health crisis will fundamentally change the way we live our lives and how we view the world. Although it is said we live in the information age, it almost seems we have now entered into the misinformation age. Rumors and theories about the origins of this new global health risk have exploded and seem to be just as virulent as the disease itself. Is this some sort of secret government plot to aid in depopulation? A cover for the massive arrests of corrupt high profile members of the global community? Or is it a result of the incompetence and shortsightedness of political officials who are a product of a culture of greed and apathy? Join the Theorists as slip into sexy hazmat suits and wade into the hot zone to poke and prod at the theories around...Covid-19

In 1975, New York City was on the brink of financial disaster. In the previous years the city officials had borrowed more money from banks to prop up its flailing local government until, finally, the banks decided that it was enough. This decision would have long-reaching repercussions that seem to have led directly to how we see the world today. The final decision to take control of a government and effectively replace publicly elected politicians with bankers would fundamentally shape the future of the modern world. Some of the world's greatest enemies like Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Al Qaida were a direct result of carefully crafted narratives by western governments in order to maintain the status quo. The youth counter culture who thought they were rebelling and making a statement by withdrawing from public and political action played directly into the hands of the governments who were now just managers. How did one city's fall to bankers produce the carefully maintained illusion of a free world? Were the revolutions that shook the Middle East in recent years and the Occupy Wall Street movement the prototypes for the next stage of our social evolution? This case file the Theorists turn up the house lights and take a peek behind the curtain of modern society to find out what's real and unreal in...HyperNormalization

Granite rock is known for being the oldest igneous rock in the world, forming as early as 300 million years ago. The material is one of the hardest and most durable substances known to man, second only to diamonds. With this quality in mind, it’s of little surprise that mankind has used granite in building some of the most impressive monuments in history from the pyramids to the base of the Statue of Liberty. If you were building a structure that you planned on surviving a global disaster then granite would most likely be your best bet. This consideration is perhaps what led to the construction of a mysterious stone monument that is located in the unlikely location of Elberton, Georgia known mostly for its substantial supply of granite stone. Commissioned by a mysterious group that has remained anonymous to this very day, the megalithic monuments stands 19ft tall and collectively weigh nearly 240,000 pounds. What mysterious instructions for the post-apocalypse are printed on these massive slabs? Why were they built? Are they a monument to guide potential human survivors to a society governed by reason or are they guidelines to establish a New World Order? Join the theorists head down south and get rock hard for...The Georgia Guidestones.

The story of the human race has become increasingly rich and complex as we make new discoveries at a blazing pace. New species of hominids, artifacts, and structures like Gobekli Tepe are challenging the old theories and assumptions we had about our early ancestors. Still, in many circles, what is considered the hallmark of the most advanced cultures always seems to be the pyramid. Monuments that have lasted for thousands of years watching the rise and fall of the once-great empires that surrounded them. But in 2005 it was claimed that there had been a discovery of pyramids that dwarfed those that have been a landmark of the Giza Plateau and those in the jungles of Central America. In the town of Visoko one man believes he has uncovered pyramids left behind and crafted by an advanced culture that existed in the area of Bosnia-Herzegovina. What evidence is there of these magnificent structures? Are they truly the sign of the presence of a fantastically advanced pre-Ice Age civilization or are they more akin to a tourist trap roadside attraction on an international scale? Join the Theorists as they poke around and feel the power of...The Bosnian Pyramids.
