Being a mathematician and a theoretical physicist, I tend to believe in facts. But a very wise man once said, ‘You cannot prove or find something that you cannot imagine’.
In the scientific world, we make theories, devise formulas, imagine realities, and then work in order to prove them. But as much as we like to prove facts, we also like cooking up conspiracy theories.
Books of history are filled with many such conspiracy theories, made up by people with a faster and wider thinking process. But the secret is, we don’t really believe all of those. We conspire, we analyze certain facts, we build stories at times, and then go crazy over those to prove them right somehow.
The reality you know to be today, was once someone’s imagination!
But what we strictly abstain from doing is; we never cook up some stupid conspiracy theories in extremely risky times like, say, a pandemic, and tell people stories about how some secret dark organization might be the reason behind it and that it is nothing but just a sham. No! We don’t do that.
Throwing out conspiracy theories which might hinder the process of finding out a solution for something that puts the entire human civilization at risk, I believe that is ‘bat poop crazy’.
Conspiracy theories are good. Conspiracy theories like, Area-51 has Aliens; or Denver International Airport stands above an underground city; or the existnce of Illuminati; those kind of conspiracy theories ae fun.
But telling people that Covid-19 was built by China because they had some kind of undue inspiration, or China and US together, or some other organization, or that it could be killed by injecting UV rays into the bloodstream; that’s not cool.
All that does, is spread hatred for a country that probably has no idea about what the hell is going on and puts millions of lives at risk.
I would choose to believe in a lot of conspiracy theories as long as they don’t affect the existence of mankind.
Every theory we make is somewhat of a conspiracy theory at first. But then, those theories don’t really tend to kill people!
