Speaking of conspiracy, the University
of Virginia where I got my B.A. is host (if that is the correct word) to
several secret societies (with none of which have I ever been associated).
One of these is the 7 society. It performs its beneficent
works in secrecy and mystery (such as leaving a large gift to the University
in the Rotunda at the feet of the statue of Thomas Jefferson at midnight
on the 7th of July). Its members are unknown until their deaths when
their obituaries reveal them. Its symbol -- a large 7 -- adorns
many locations on the U.Va. campus. Imagine my surprise to learn
that their reach far exceeds the bounds of earth! One day while
looking at the famous Mariner "face of Mars" photos I was suddenly stunned
by a revelation. This was indeed a monument but not a face at all
as commonly supposed. It is a giant
7! I wonder if I'm
allowed to tell anybody?
If you think the International Conspiracy
of Silence or any other conspiracy theory used to explain "why things are
the way they are" is a simple failure to apply clear, objective thought
and analysis to find the facts or real explanations behind extraordinary
claims then you might be interested in my Inquiry
to Tom Jonard's Home page.
