Rambling 46: Mass Hysteria

The thinkers discuss mass hysteria and how it’s affected people throughout time. As well as simulation games. The Outward video game and Vampires.

Hot on the trail of clues leading to true government corruption, our duo stumbles into a facility running virtual simulations with humans as experiments, having them trapped in weird farming simulations for months at a time. The goal? To cause a mass hysteria to later be replicated in the general population. Creeping and sneaking through the facility collecting clues the duo comes across files detailing plans from way back in the 50s explaining how to build a cult using music. Reading through the documents the philosophers discover that the band The Beetles were created to push the ideologies of Neo-Nazis. All that and more on this episode.
