This Is an ARG

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2012 by exploringthehoax

Occasionally, on the forum, we touch on a subject that is important to the Hoax community, and the MJ Fan community, as a whole. I have copied this exchange http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/index.php?topic=21825.msg403480#msg403480  over to blog form for everyone to enjoy. So without further adieu,

What I am curious about, is how they would react if it would come out that Front indeed IS Michael. What if? Will they suddenly forget that they didn’t actually like his character? Would they indeed really stop ‘being fans’ or would they apologize and start kissing his ass? That to me would be interesting to see happening.

To me even hypothetical these choices here seem disregarded.
Assuming that Front is Michael (again, something I strongly doubt), a confirmation in this direction can only come from Michael himself, as Michael.
Michael respects and loves his fans a great deal and given that most of his fans are non-beLIEvers, fans that are still living terrible moments after June 25, I wouldn’t think MJ’s so cruel to recognize  he was playing hide-and-seek with some beLIEvers on a forum while they were suffering and left “alone”.

This “fact” alone would contradict what his fans KNOW Michael is all about – LOVE (caring, respect, etc.).

As I see it, Michael could be anywhere on the internet, playing any character he wants to, but in no way giving hints that he might be him.

It’s a catch 22. If MJ opened up this knowledge to every single one of his fans, this would not be a death hoax. If he made it clear and obvious that he was not really dead, and behold: posting on an internet forum, the entire thing would be ruined, hoax over, the jig would be up… and therefore by default, the hoax would be not a hoax. Do you get what I’m trying to say? A hoax that everyone knows about is not a hoax.

Without this secrecy there would be no journey towards the truth, no self discovery, no exploration of knowledge, no discovery of self confidence, no lessons learned about sound investigative techniques, no deciphering of accurate source vs. unreliable one. In other words, the entire ARG would be so dumbed down that the entire point of the thing would be lost.

No one would have to learn that not all is as it seems. No one would have to realize that they shouldn’t believe everything they see on the news. No one would have to discover the truth because it would be handed to them on a silver platter. This would defeat the entire project before it was even launched.

So veronica, your envisioned ideal really isn’t logical given the common held belief that we all share—> this is a hoax.

He set it up (I believe) as a game, of sorts, where the purpose is to decipher the Truth, and the strategy is to improve your own ability to sift fact from BS, weed out liars from truth tellers, and make connections between your results that lead you all the way to the man himself.

As with any well constructed game, if it is too easy to advance levels, the player will skate through too quickly, or lose interest and abandon it. It’s a challenge when constructing a game to balance it’s difficulty while still making it possible to win if you play right.

If MJ opened up the final levels to all his fans, and helped them along the way by stacking the deck in their favor, setting them all up to succeed, I would have lost interest a long time ago, and I think many of my cohorts here would have done the same. It’s like downloading what looks like a super cool strategy game and opening it up only to realize that it was designed for Kindergartners. Disappointing and nevermind, you need something more challenging, more stimulating to capture your attention for long.

If he opened up the final levels to ALL his fans, it would be a disappointment to those who really cracked their heads on this for years, trying to figure out the rules and parameters of play, and really applied themselves toward advancing. Besides, if it was too easy, many of us wouldn’t have ever bothered in the first place. Oh *yawn* yeah the MJ death hoax. Everyone knows he isn’t dead, how lame. Pass the cheese puffs.

As it is (were), the game is stimulating because it pushes self discovery and awareness about this world. It challenges the player to push past accepted norms and delve deeply into the unorthodox manners of thought. What is possible? Stretch your parameters, think outside the box, cast off your preconceived notions about… well, nearly everything.

Now that’s a game, an epic game, and though it’s sad not everyone can enjoy it, it’s certainly not for lack of trying. We have attempted, on multiple occasions, to turn others onto this game, to alert their attention to it, to convey this information. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you might look at it), the game was set up in such a way that the info is non-transferable; it is nearly impossible to transmit this info to a third party who is not up to speed, on their own, already. There really is no list of hints or cheats available online that one can refer to and breeze through the levels only to arrive at the final boss battle. In my opinion, that makes for the best, most challenging game ever set up in the history of game play.

So veronica, what you suggest, that your ideal MJ would not leave many of his fans in the dark, in favor of a dedicated (obsessed? lol) few, defeats the entire point, as I see it, and as past history seems to strongly suggest, there would be no challenge, no ARG, no project, no epic realization, no deep self improvement, and no hoax at all.

Because, you see, in order for us all who are here, at this advanced level/stage, it took a great deal of self exploration, self realization, and self confidence, to shrug off everything we thought we knew at the beginning, and open our minds to the possibilities that we previously disregarded as “impossible”. It takes a great deal of courage to admit you were wrong about something you wholeheartedly believed for, perhaps, your whole life. It is that breaking down that allows you to be built back up; stronger, better, wiser, better prepared to face this life and this society and take it all on, and perhaps even CHANGE IT for the better.

So for those willing to take this path, this path of emotional torture, of unknowing, of scary, frightening realizations that maybe you don’t know so much after all, the result at the end is worth it. Everyone here has a tale of self improvement after their years in these trenches. Without that struggle, what, exactly would the game player have achieved? Not much worth winning in the grand scheme of things.

That was the longest post in the world in an attempt to help you understand information which was designed to be non-transferable. After all that, I could have just quoted Mary K, who said it best in just a few words:

Quote from: MaryK on 4 hours  ago

All I can say is that I am once again reminded of this saying:

“I’m only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand”….

Everyone had a choice after 6/25/09; believe what the TV screen tells you, or look deeper. For those who looked deeper, they found another choice, connect these dots, or decide it’s all too unbelievable… and thus it began, and continued, all down the line for months and years until we arrive at me posting this today, on the Front thread, to you, a non-believer. I really hope you are willing to try and understand what we are enjoying, because I believe it is not too late. The hoax train is still picking up passengers, it is not full, and anyone can still get a ticket. Everyone has always been invited.

What is proof?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2012 by exploringthehoax

The reader should be aware, if they aren’t already, that I have never stopped hoaxing. I’m almost ashamed to admit it; I have continued to follow the MJ Death Hoax dutifully on a daily basis online since July 17th 2009 (and offline since June 25, 2009), regardless of my recorded online contributions on this wordpress site. Several are already probably aware of the fact that I began moderating the largest hoax site Michael Jackson Death Hoax Investigators forum last summer, after maintaining a regular presence there since it’s inception. For those who aren’t, it’s very nice to meet you, I am bec.

What I have quit doing is attempting to “prove” the hoax by compiling the supportive evidence that I have uncovered and presenting it in a such a way that might convince an audience of it’s factual nature. I found it largely a lesson in frustration. It was no minor surprise to me that people, in general, will believe what they want to believe, and are largely close minded to avenues they never personally considered prior. In other words, if one didn’t think of it first, the information will be largely and universally rejected regardless of validity.

People need to be ready to consider the radically unconventional. It is a very personal journey towards getting ready to open one’s mind to possibilities that society deems “impossible”. I can now imagine that the Wright Brothers and Nikola Tesla faced similar resistance to their ideas.

The Michael Jackson Death Hoax is fantastical and unprecedented. The only similar historical examples we can site is the Elvis Death Hoax and possibly the Andy Kaufman Death Hoax, and due to their to-date uncompleted status (and in the case of the latter, unlikely) of these hoaxes, they actually more strongly support the invalidity of the MJDH rather then the opposite. This mention aside, the MJDH is a unique animal, and I have routinely found myself in uncharted territory just trying to define it.

But as we press forward, and as the calendar pages fly by, the theory of the MJDH strengthens rather then weakens. Skeptics point to the duration of time as a sign that MJ really is dead, or at very least, is not coming back. The problem with this short sighted and extremely shallow theory is it fails to take into account the heaps of evidence we have collected, compiled, and that still continues to trickle down to us from the shadowy Puppetmaster behind the curtain. I would reasonably expect, after working the hoax (aka ‘hoaxing’) since July of ’09, if this were a fantasy type product of a collective mind, that the “clues” would become more obscure, less frequent, and eventually dry up as we get 1, 2, and now very nearly 3 years from the date of the alleged death. I would also expect that as we Hoaxers become less reclusive, and more visible, that the Jackson Family and/or the Estate would be inclined to take some steps to shut us down. At very least, the Estate ought to make some effort to ask that we cease and desist the use of MJ’s name and image on our heavily traveled and well known website, MJDHI.

By contrast, both the Family and the Estate seem increasingly aware of our online presence and is silent on the subject. I take their silence as approval that we continue.

Now perhaps MJ made it is wish, communicated to the family and the Estate, that a faux-Death Hoax become his legacy after his real earthly passing to give the fans and the public some sort of sense of mystery and intrigue going forward, effectively forever contributing to the Master Showman’s Life of Illusion, he would have a fitting Death of Illusion as well, akin to Elvis, and the cultural phenomenon his passing has become since 1977.

However, this fails to take into account the oddities and irregularities that accompanied Conrad Murray’s mans.laughter case in the fall of 2011. The Jackson Family would have no influence over toys placed in the courtroom during hearings and trial, no influence over the missing letters masquerading as typos in the Prosecution’s power points (that were, incidentally, predicted by a mysterious username on the MJDHI forum months prior), nor would they be able to write and submit a script that included the wording of “alleged victim” during the reading of the verdict at trial’s end. The Jackson Family simply could not have pulled this off as a hoax themselves to honor an actually dead MJ.

The skeptic will press forward and throw the hardball question, if the Jackson Family couldn’t do it, how could an alive MJ have done it?

This is a legitimate question. HOW, does one propose, in the Hoaxer point of view, that Michael Jackson has pulled this off? Well the skeptic will gleefully pounce upon my answer as a sign of weakness of my (our) theory when I say, I haven’t any idea.

I don’t see this as a weakness in the Death Hoax theory however, as I concede my complete inability to be able to knowledgeably or effectively ascertain the legalities of a Death Hoax in the first place. Additionally it should be noted, I lack knowledge and experience in the entertainment field and of moving making in general.

However, it should be noted, that it makes good common sense to presume that one considering a Death Hoax as an entertainment project, would retain the best lawyers that money can buy, prior to launch.

If we are to determine, for lack of a better way to describe this Death Hoax “project”, that the whole thing and all the events of and following June 25th, 2009, publicly known as “The Death of Michael Jackson”, is a sort of real time, live action, reality based movie, it would effectively explain the entire bizarre stage play we have witnessed.

And that is enough for one entry. I’d like to say I will be back, though I don’t know that I can commit to that. I am satisfied we will see an end to this one day, perhaps this year, which will validate what I have said, and wholeheartedly believed since July 17th, 2009. If I have learned anything at all it is this: Thing are not always as they seem when it comes to Michael Jackson. The line between truth and fiction is a flexible membrane.

Playing With Fire

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 31, 2010 by exploringthehoax

The 9282 days thing in regards to the Pepsi burn accident being the exact midpoint of Michael Jackson’s life has been nagging at my brain like a spiteful woman. It goes round n round like this little persistent voice in my head that won’t go away no matter how much I ignore it.

So to review 9282 days, some clever hoaxer out there did the math and discovered that the date of the Pepsi burn accident is exactly 1/2 way between Michael’s birth and “death” date. Which of course suggests that the death date was designed purposely to encompass this event as quite significant to Michael and likely the hoax as a whole. So moving forward, we are bombarded with Coke product placement and tie-ins, Sunflowers and happiness machines and AEG endorsements etc. Enough to make your head spin a little. Does our hoax have a sponsor?

Fine. This is a little nuts but totally mainstream still. So Michael designed the death date to draw attention to the horrible disfiguring accident caused by carelessness of Pepsi shoot pyrotechnitions which saddled him with addiction for the rest of his life. Ok. I know you’re all still with me at this point.

Are you ready? Here’s where I’m gonna venture off the beaten path with a little help from my very best hoax friend and suggest something just a wee bit off the wall. Do the numerology addition on the number of days and you come up with:

9+2+8+2=21… 21 (7.7.7)

which is quite nuts as it suggests that the Pepsi accident would have to be by design…. unless you believe in divine intervention with adherence to numerology… which I don’t. I believe numerology and 777 is important to Michael.

K let’s jump in.

Did you watch? The whole thing? Crazy right? Ok, well, their hair is on fire just for a second, neat stunt but just a stunt. Keep watching, it gets crazier.

How about that? Pretty nuts right? Yeah, ok, dude’s got a big afro which protects his head and all, but Michael has a ton of gerry curl in his hair which is flammable and accelerated the fire. K… keep watchin.

You asked for it. No afro, tons of accelerant, long burn time, no injury.

You have to face it, it’s very possible Michael hoaxed that accident.
