A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Then a mighty strange thing happened.  Guess you could call it fate. You see, a gust of wind blew the picture frame down and it landed on the muckety-muck's head And the mice they all went crazy. For the first time they saw the lie.

It was all a hoax on just simple folks. And the muckety-muck must die. And die he did. The members of his staff they just fled. They were scared. Hah. Just not prepared." - Song: The Proper Gander. Songwriter: Bobby Darin

Deconstructing "Outer Space" Chapter 2: Faking The International Space Station With CGI

Video Game CGI Technology Has Been Around For a Long Time

Such Tech Makes Doing Old School Photographic Photoshop Darkroom Magic All That Much Easier

YouTube is the new Newsreel theater and it sells the same old scripted fictions as fact. Audiences have long been dazed and dazzled by Hollywood crafted science fantasy sold as visual fact.

CGI: In 2017 it's easier to fake it than ever before, but you can be sure NASA has been faking it since the Disney Atomic Age of Television.

Of course we can make believe that NASA does not have what most would consider unlimited resources to create all sorts of magical visuals to enchant the public imagination. We can make believe that the video game industry is not supposed to rival Hollywood films in terms of profit. We aren't supposed to know that the Rand Corporation and the Militaries of the world have long engaged in simulated machinations. Chess is but the earliest example of what would grow into massive multiplayer online reality simulations. Most in the government do not know that they themselves are participating in virtual reality in a Rand Corporation sponsored Military MATRIX. Art has always been commissioned with the purpose of crafting public imagination. Impressive wigs and Royal costuming, beautiful architecture, interior design, operas, oil paintings and all the rest of the artifacts of culture have long existed to define the boundaries of reason for the mass public. This seems to be human nature. The government backed artist is a powerful WMD. Human nature seems to be eternal and most seem to be little more than happy parroting sheep. Technology can advance or recede, and populations can grow or diminish in size, there always seems to historically be the same proportion of free and critical thinker to true believer, with the former being overwhelmed by the far greater number of the latter.

We can make believe that off the shelf computer gaming graphic cards can't work wonders and we can make believe such computer hardware did not exist in the late 1990's and even earlier. We can ignore the history of the state run monopoly known as Bell Labs and how that outfit would essentially craft the world of today. We must also ignore the military industrial financial incentive for all of this. Government has the means, motive and opportunity to carry out such a long term strategy and in fact, that is exactly what government is. Government is the proverbial house of trump cards built on a foundation of inspired lies. Government is a war racketeering snake oil salesman's wildest and most liquid of dreams come true.

The False Narrative Of The 21st Century Online Political Divide and Conquer Strategy

See the prior article in this series for more, but it is interesting to note that certain pro and anti NASA online personas with admitted video game and computer backgrounds, claim to have either photographed the space station or that the Earth is magically flat.

The most likely explanation for photos and videos of the space station is obviously Hollywood special effects work. NASA is nothing but a Hollywood special effects studio and the governments of the world do not work for any of us, all of the important institutions work for the system itself. The world is run as one big global enterprise and the people on top are all part of the same club the rest of us are left out of.

On Dec. 4, 2016, NASA Ames hosted an event in conjunction with the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences Foundation. Ames established a Non-Reimbursable Space Act Agreement with Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences (BPLS), a non-profit corporation to host the awards ceremony at Ames. The BPLS is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to advancing breakthrough research, celebrating distinguished scientists and generating excitement about the pursuit of science as a career. The BPLS award ceremony, for by invitation-only guests, honors achievements in life science, physics and mathematics and is on par with other highly regarded scientific and technical awards such as the Draper and National Academy of Sciences Awards. NASA is a recognized world leader in life science and physics with key contributions being made to the field by our people at NASA Ames. This high-profile event brings well-deserved and needed attention to the importance of STEM education, which is one of the Agency’s primary missions."

"Heading home for the holidays may fill you with joy, as well as a little dread at the thought of the complexities of air travel at one of the busiest times of the year. The good news is that NASA is working on new technologies and concepts in air traffic management that will not only provide some relief from holiday travel headaches, but increase the efficiency, safety and environmental friendliness of air transportation."

"Today, researchers are testing these new tools at FutureFlight Central, a comprehensive, 360-degree simulation of an air traffic control tower at NASA Ames."

“FutureFlight Central is uniquely equipped to recreate the experience of being in any air traffic control tower, at any airport, with any amount of traffic,” said Fay Chinn, FutureFlight’s facility manager.

"Virtually every air traffic control tower in the United States uses some form of NASA-developed technology, and any of them can be recreated here. Inside the simulator, you could believe you were in the control tower of your local airport … until another location appears outside the windows."

"The view is recreated on 12 projection screens from high-resolution aerial photography, elevation data and close-up digital photography. In FutureFlight’s simulated world of aviation, planes taxi along the runway, take off, and land just as they would at a real airport. These simulations are created from a database that includes 3D modeling of more than a hundred aircraft and ground vehicles. For researchers in other fields, FutureFlight can even take them virtually to the surface of Mars."

A Video Compression History Lesson Post Script:

No Computer Video Compression Technology Means No "Satellite" Evolution Revolution

"The analog TV signals you pick up with rabbit ears or analog cable were not compressed, which is why each channel of analog TV broadcast sucked up 6MHz of precious, precious radio spectrum bandwidth. 6MHz corresponds to an uncompressed video bitrate of about 18Mbps. And that's just for anemic standard-resolution NTSC signals, 30 interlaced frames per second of 720x486 visible pixels, FM-quality sound, and some metadata.

Thanks to the miracle of high-quality video compression, the same 6MHz slice of spectrum can also house a full-on 1080p high-definition channel, or up to six compressed lo-fi stations—and they all come with 5.1 digital surround sound.

The ATSC (American Television Systems Committee) digital TV broadcast standard crams either MPEG-2 or high-powered H.264 compressed video and Dolby Digital AC-3 sound into an MPEG-2 media container. A 1080p channel would eat much more bandwidth using older and less efficient compression methods, so compression efficiency was absolutely a catalyst for the digital TV revolution and the explosion of channels that followed.

In 1992, Bruce Springsteen sang that there were 57 channels and nothing on TV. Today, you can get over 30 stations on rabbit ears in large markets like New York or Los Angeles. I have 358 channels available on my FiOS box in tiny Tampa, including over 100 high-definition channels and 16,000 on-demand videos. Bruce might be going through a lot of TV sets these days. And it's all because of video compression."

Aerial Perspective: The Further Away The Object, The Less Detail

Real layers of atmosphere, dust and water vapor act to physically block light waves from reaching the lens of the camera. We would not expect to be able to see a stadium sized space station from 249 miles away through even the thinner atmosphere of the heavens above our heads. Look up during the day and you might note the sky is blue. That same atmosphere is there at night. That same atmosphere act like a very real screen.

Why I Think The NASA Vomit Comet Is Fake

When can "we" the people wait on lines for this Disneyland ride?

Free Fall vs 45 Degree Parabolic Flight: Does This Make Sense?

Why even go through the trouble when people believe whatever they are told and seemingly always have and always will?.

Just compare the description of free falling to the parabolic flight.

Free Falling

"In a state of free fall, both you and the elevator are weightless, and jointly approaching the bottom of the shaft at the same high velocity. You are in a similar position to an astronaut floating around in his capsule or spaceship, unable to stand or get a secure footing on anything without recourse to magnetic boots and/or ropes and handles to pull against."

If I were in an elevator that was free falling, would it help at all if I ...

Free Falling does not seem to be the same thing as a Parabolic Flight.

45 Degree Parabolic Flights

"Initially, the aircraft climbs with a pitch angle of 45 degrees using engine thrust and elevator controls. The sensation of weightlessness is achieved by reducing thrust and lowering the nose to maintain a neutral, or "zero lift", configuration such that the aircraft follows a ballistic trajectory, with engine thrust exactly compensating for drag."

Reduced-gravity aircraft - Wikipedia

How can weightlessness begin while the vomit comet is ascending?

"Weightlessness begins while ascending and lasts all the way "up-and-over the hump", until the craft reaches a downward pitch angle of around 30 degrees. At this point, the craft is pointing downward at high speed and must begin to pull back into the nose-up attitude to repeat the maneuver. The forces are then roughly twice that of gravity on the way down, at the bottom, and up again. This lasts all the way until the aircraft is again halfway up its upward trajectory, and the pilot again reduces the thrust and lowers the nose."

Reduced-gravity aircraft - Wikipedia

NASA can't be trusted. And the explanation for parabolic flights makes no sense to me.

In order to be able to perform this feat, the passenger jet needs to fall or somehow exactly fly in the direction of gravity which would be impossible. In other words the passenger jet has to be falling straight down.  I just don't see how this is physically possible,

Hollywood Special Effects

Hollywood has been able to fake parabolic flights for years. Water can even be simulated to look like it is in "zero-g". Film like James Cameron's "The Abyss" from the late 1980's clearly shows us what was possible decades ago. NASA is a film effects studio, Do not trust any of their work.

The Vomit Comet at the beginning of the clip, looks like a model passenger jet to me. It moves in a very unnatural manner. How does the passenger jet move vertically like an elevator and where is the camera supposed to be, on a similar passenger jet?

There are many ways to fake it. Parabolic flights make little logical sense. All the evidence is in edited YouTube form.

The passengers and the jet itself would need to be approaching the Earth's surface at the same high velocity.

How could a 45 degree angles equate with free fall?

How does this result in a state of free fall like being in a broken elevator plummeting towards certain doom?

"Initially, the aircraft climbs with a pitch angle of 45 degrees using engine thrust and elevator controls. The sensation of weightlessness is achieved by reducing thrust and lowering the nose to maintain a neutral, or "zero lift", configuration such that the aircraft follows a ballistic trajectory, with engine thrust exactly compensating for drag.

So when and how does gravity get turned off? Gravity is independent of any other motion.

For the "billionth" time on this blog: demonstrable ballistic physics prove this stuff wrong.

Highly edited military industrial propaganda is not proof of anything.

What am I missing here? This is NASA and the military industrial complex material. We know the history of Hollywood and this complex are pretty much one and the same. We know that NASA and the Government are the hugest liars in history. Why would they even bother? There are probably more ways to fake this than any of us can imagine. When can we wait on a line for this Disneyland ride? We can't wait on a line to take a rocket ride and we "normies" can't even wait on a line to take a vomit ride. Highly edited military industrial propaganda is not proof of anything.

NASA Takes Us On A Visual Ride

When I put the NASA Vomit Comet in context, it just doesn't make sense to me. The full context, not just physical.

The dashed lines can be thought to represent the imagined "strings" of gravity's accelerated pull towards this sentence.

Can you explain how this could work?

Gravity pulls a body towards the center of the Earth. How can does this flight path avoid gravity? The plane never points straight down. In order to experience free fall on a passenger jet, the jet itself needs to be falling and out of the control of the pilot. A passenger jet can't just simply move up and down like it is on a string. It is not a helicopter and cannot maneuver like how a helicopter or elevator would. The passenger jet lacks any way for it to be able to perform such a maneuver as we see in the above NASA video. None of this seems physically possible, Next time you take a flight consider what it would really be like if the pilot decided to attempt this maneuver. This does not seem like something that anyone would even want to attempt. Don't get me wrong, I do have as open a mind as I can have. It's just that I don't see any point in anyone even wanting to bother trying to actually do this when it is easier to fake it and the public was long conditioned to believe in all sorts of authoritative mythic lie as reality.

Layers of Lies Protect The Truth: The Mighty Army of Pharaoh Exists Only in His Bathtub

NASA is a film studio. The air industry has been showing the public model jets for years. Highly edited footage on a screen is nothing to worry about. But that's just what I think. You can think what you want to. I would suggest you not believe any of the super spy high spying spy plane nonsense without a lot of critical thought. Military deception is a logical tactic. The rulers of humanity have always used magical powers to shepherd the human resourceful flock. The Concorde was a real high speed passenger jet. Research that subject if you are curious to lean more.

Once you realize that Nation States are fake, there is no reason to fly in the sky playing spy. Besides demonstrable optics make those magical flights very suspect. Real spying makes more sense when done at the local level, FBI/Police style. Again, even if "they" can do it, why bother, when the public will believe whatever the state run media, we are told are independent, tells them? The government spent the money on TV and Bell Labs and special effects. The public believe in the Fourth of July. They truly believe George Washington was their guy and on their side. We're not going to wake anyone up who would not already be awake anyway. There might always be a minor few who can see the possibilities while the rest "sheep". Our tax money went to funding not real war but this digitally connected global commercial enterprise/mental constructed prison-land, that has everyone bound to the system, now more than ever before.

I think the best anyone can ever hope for is a slight push back in the context of the social construct of government.

That's it. I don't currently think human nature will allow otherwise.

Governmental authority relies on the impression that the Military possesses great power. Power of such magnitude that we do not stand a chance.

People are so conditioned to accept authoritative stage illusion as a sign of real power that the powers that be do possess true power. They really do have control over the imagination of one vast human resource and that is real power. I think this is the way most of us are meant to be and there is nothing we can do to change what is Natural in humanity. I could be wrong, but if we consider human nature in the context of the observable animal kingdom and the obvious truth of history and the current world, how can we think otherwise and not be lying to ourselves? We can hope to be wrong, but the promised land is one none of us will ever see.

Gravity Matters

The passengers and the jet itself would need to be approaching the Earth's surface at the same high velocity.

The passenger jet would have to be falling too. It needs to accelerate with the exact same increasing velocity as the falling body does.

A Fake Flight

One would still experience gravity during the entire flight. Gravity would not stop working would it?  A ballistic trajectory means gravity is still at work. Ballistic physics demonstrably shows us that gravity is independent from the projectile's horizontal velocity One cannot effect the other. The same logic and natural principle applies to the passenger jet.

Does this really make sense?

"The aircraft gives its occupants the sensation of weightlessness by following a parabolic flight path relative to the center of the Earth. While following this path, the aircraft and its payload are in free fall at certain points of its flight path. The aircraft is used in this way to demonstrate to astronauts what it is like to orbit the Earth. During this time the aircraft does not exert any ground reaction force on its contents, causing the sensation of weightlessness.

Initially, the aircraft climbs with a pitch angle of 45 degrees using engine thrust and elevator controls. The sensation of weightlessness is achieved by reducing thrust and lowering the nose to maintain a neutral, or "zero lift", configuration such that the aircraft follows a ballistic trajectory, with engine thrust exactly compensating for drag. Weightlessness begins while ascending and lasts all the way "up-and-over the hump", until the craft reaches a downward pitch angle of around 30 degrees. At this point, the craft is pointing downward at high speed and must begin to pull back into the nose-up attitude to repeat the maneuver. The forces are then roughly twice that of gravity on the way down, at the bottom, and up again. This lasts all the way until the aircraft is again halfway up its upward trajectory, and the pilot again reduces the thrust and lowers the nose."

You are in a similar position to an astronaut floating around in his capsule or spaceship, unable to stand or get a secure footing on anything without recourse to magnetic boots and/or ropes and handles to pull against."

If I were in an elevator that was free falling, would it help at all if I ...

The same logic applies to the passenger jet does it not?

The passengers and the jet itself would need to be approaching the Earth's surface at the same high velocity.

The Passenger Jet Itself Would Have To Be In Free Fall

Does it look like the passenger jet ever points straight down? In order to achieve the magical zero-g, or free fall, one would assume the passenger jet would need to be falling towards the center of the Earth too. If you look at the arc above, and read the description you can see that this does not seem to make any sense. We would expect the passenger jet to need to be falling at the same rate as the occupants. It would not be under the control of the pilot. A plane flying in an arc can't magically make gravity disappear. The jet would have to point straight up and down, would it not? It would need to be falling too. The wings would make it impossible for the jet to start to drop like a stone. The parabolic arc itself cannot magically alter the fact that gravity is still pulling all bodies towards the center of the Earth.

Free Fall:

"An object dropped at the top of a drop tube. An object thrown upward or a person jumping off the ground at low speed (i.e. as long as air resistance is negligible in comparison to weight)."

Technically, an object is in free fall even when moving upwards or instantaneously at rest at the top of its motion. If gravity is the only influence acting, then the acceleration is always downward and has the same magnitude for all bodies, commonly denoted g."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_fall

Demonstrable Ballistic Physics Proves The Parabolic Arc Problematic

"If our thought experiment continues and we project the cannonball horizontally in the presence of gravity, then the cannonball would maintain the same horizontal motion as before - a constant horizontal velocity. Furthermore, the force of gravity will act upon the cannonball to cause the same vertical motion as before - a downward acceleration. The cannonball falls the same amount of distance as it did when it was merely dropped from rest (refer to diagram below). However, the presence of gravity does not affect the horizontal motion of the projectile."

We The People

It seems to me that some of the news stories are so obviously fake and problematic for a reason and that reason might be to see how guidable the public really is. Some of the contrived events sold as real might be barometer readings. In any case, most people really buy into the patriotic religion in one way or another. Even if someone does not vote, they still think "We" won "our" freedom in 1776, and "We" went to the "Moon" and all the rest of the catechism of the religion of government and "America". People like heroes and brave adventures and narratives of wonder. They seem to really need symbols to guide their way. They seem to really want to be shepherded and believe. I think it is basic human nature. And for this reason I see little need for NASA to do anything but create high end film effects work. People will believe the highly edited footage the TV talking head sells them on. Its easier to create highly charged propaganda than it is to actually engineer something for real. This is the most basic of "stock jobbing" tactics. The history of science and technology involves more fakery and hoaxes than most of the public understand.

An Augmented Artificial World For Artificial Minds

We live in a world that is more artificial than most realize. Most of us accept the authority of the system without question. This authority comes in many forms. like, Queens, Popes, Bishops, Priests, Rabbis, Presidents & Prime Ministers & Kings, Governors, Mayors, Doctors, Scientists and Talking Heads on Screens. Words from these "special" mouths were the old medium for authority. These people dressed in costume up on stages, acting and performing theater were and still are supposed to be obeyed. Their decrees read by servants, proclaimed and still proclaim their laws that all must follow. Today things are not so different despite the claims of mythic Democracies and Republics of the Western World. The many are still ruled by the few and the Bill of Rights we are sold as Liberty is not Natural Freedom but a commercial enterprise backed Feudal Wage Slave System. The Governmental systems work just fine, they just do not work for most of us.

Cold Wars are literal and actual theater more so than not. The same Global Old World Banking Powers run the world as we know it.
