If you are ever in need of an ice-breaker conversation line, just
mention the word conspiracy. You will never know what the response
will be, but nine times out of ten, it will be immediate and
interesting, regardless of whether the person believes in conspiracy
theories or not.
For years, those in the mainstream have ridiculed and made fun of
believers in conspiracy theories. Granted, there is not a conspiracy
behind everything that happens, but you have to stop and ask yourself
where does coincidence end and conspiracy begin?
Let's take a close look at the word conspiracy itself.
Webster's II defines conspiracy as:
con · spir · a · cy n., pl.-
cies. 1. The act of conspiring. 2. A group of
Now, let's look up conspire:
con · spire v. -pired, -
1. To plan together in secret to commit a wrongful act.
2. To act or work together. -con · spir'a
By definition, conspiracies happen everytime a crime is committed
involving more than one person. So now, by definition, we have
determined that conspiracies do indeed exist and occur every day. So
the next time someone tells you conspiracies don't exist... pull out
For years, the United States has led the world in the development of
technology and even had the industrial capability to fight a two front
war. Now, it appears that America is going into decline. Thanks to the
incentives (mandates, taxes, overregulation, etc.) our national
government has bestowed upon us all, our industrial base is being
shipped overseas. For a lot of blue-collar (and now even white collar)
workers the jobs are drying up fast.
Even our educational system is suffering as we have turned from
education to social engineering. As a result, we may soon lose our
edge in technical developments. Already, we are seeing signs that we
are losing our common base of knowledge either through design or by
The amount of technical knowledge that has been "lost" in just this
century is incredible. A lot of "new" discoveries currently emerging
have been around for years, lost favor, and are now just being brought
back in vogue. Silver colloid and how to make a proper standard light
bulb are just two technologies that are being recovered.
Light Bulbs in
The Good Old Days...
I'm sure that a high percentage of the readership, myself included,
share a common experience -- changing a standard 100W light bulb. The
standard light in 1995 lasts about 750 hours. It sounds reasonable,
until you learn that the lifetime of a standard 100W bulb in 1932 was
1000 hours! What happened... did they forget how to make
lightbulbs at the bulb factory?
Thomas Edison invented the incandescent light bulb in 1877. By 1900
there were 24,000,000 light bulbs sold in this country. However, the
bulbs had a fairly short life span.
At the turn of the century, General Electric Laboratories, led by
Willis Whitney, turned its attention to the short lifespan of the
light bulb. After expending a lot of time, effort, and money to GE
Labs were able to extend the life of a lightbulb to 800 hours in 1908.
After more research, in 1910, the life of the light bulb was extended
to 1000 hours!
This gave General Electric a competitive edge that resulted in it
virtually capturing 90% of the domestic market. The hard earned
advances in lightbulb life put GE in the position of where it
essentially set the standards. (A hauntingly similar condition exists
with respect to Microsoft in the computer industry today!)
One would reasonably expect that in this modern day, given the advances
in materials technology, the standard light bulbs would last even
longer. However, on April 1, 1933, the bulb industry (dominated by GE)
made sweeping changes and reduced the life of the
standard household light bulbs across the board. The standard 100W
light bulb's life was reduced from 1000 hours to 750 hours!
Now, you can once again buy long-lasting bulbs for your home... at a
A Forgotten Treatment!
Silver is one the most universal antibiotic substances. Prior to 1938,
silver was one of the mainstay antibiotic treatments. Even though the
technology to produce ideal colloid particle sizes was not there in the
early 1900s, prestigious medical journals such as The Lancet
(1914) published results of scientific studies of the successful use of
The rise of the pharmaceutical companies and the advent of the FDA's
sweeping power to control drugs, spelled the end for the common use of
colloidal silver. The development and extensive marketing of
antibiotics, such as penicillin, soon made colloidal silver "obsolete."
And after a while, silver's antibiotic properties were
It wasn't until 1972 that silver's healing properties were rediscovered
by Dr. Margraf at Washington University in his search for better,
stronger antiseptic that was safe to use in treatments for burn
victims. Most burn victims die of infections-not the burn itself.
Popular antibiotics could only be used on small surface areas and
sometimes triggered "super-infections" as the germs and bacteria
developed a resistance to the antibiotics in use.
In his extensive research, he came across repeated references to
silver in older medical manuals and decided to try different
preparations. The first one he tried - silver nitrate - was found to
have some serious drawbacks. (Silver nitrate was used extensively
during the American Civil War.)
He continued his search with other preparations of silver, and was
rewarded with hundreds of important new medical uses for silver. Since
then, research has shown that modern colloidal silver is an effective
killer of over 650 different strains of viruses and bacteria. Even
better, resistive strains of microbes do not appear...
Coincidence or Conspiracy?
These are but two examples of technology being lost then rediscovered.
The question is: how were they lost in the first place? Is it
due to a poor job of education... suppression by economic forces... or
just that, before the advent of computers, there was just no way to
keep track of all of the information in an orderly and easily
retrievable fashion? I would daresay a combination of the above. As
corporations try to maximize the return on their investment, they focus
their employees' attention in other areas, and soon, what was common,
is soon forgotten.
