"Call it the conspiracy singularity: the place where many conspiracy communities are suddenly meeting and merging, a melting pot of unimaginable density.”…
We are just starting to see the beginnings of the new social and cultural movements that the melding of fringe politics with the repressed spiritual yearnings of post-Christian culture will birth. Accelerated, amalgamated and amplified by internet culture.
Bleeding out through the porous curtain that now barely separates online and offline life.
Marshall McLuhan predicted that the information overload of the emerging electronic network would push people towards the old mythic forms to find pattern recognition within the new information sphere.
The sheer size of the information overload we face is leading people to begin a new kind of existential search. Which is birthing various new religions, and reanimating long sleeping ideologies, whilst overlaying politics with a religous energy.
The cultural move from ‘religion to spirituality’ was about the shift from institutions to individuals. Now however amidst the failings of hyper-individualism, these new internet driven religious/cultural movements represent the shift from individual to network.
A dense web of individuals with weak relational connections to each other, yet still through online platforms working together in a kind of crowd sourced interpretive engine, pouring over, building upon, and remixing the Ur-conspiracies.
Creating a kind of live gnostic meta digital-scripture, which morphs and adapts to interpret significant political, cultural and global events, for its initiates / followers / creators.
