It's in our "programming" or genetic makeup, I would say, and it used by duplicitous forces, marketers being a good example of how to invoke or cause a desired behaviour, such as buy soda "x"

True.

But beyond that, what is IT, that constantly resonates? Rehash and reuse.


For example, I heard today there may be plans to 're-do' Poltergeist. Ridiculous to consider to my sense.

Pure formulaic laziness ... describes most of the trash Hollyweird puts out these days imho.

Occasionally, a home run is hit though.

It is well known many Fairy tales and children's stories/rhymes were code to pass down knowledge you were not allowed to speak openly about. There are many examples of esoteric knowledge being handed down this way.

They were telling kids there is evil out there and telling them the most evil of them all eat children. These rumors go back as far as the Saturn death cult and are still heard today through the bohemian grove to the ever present and recent rumors of the Vatican underworld.

The implication being those exact same groups were around then and are still active today.

Now, what you tend to believe about a rumor that old and persistent is another discussion altogether, but I believe that is what those stories allude to and why they persist.

Thank you for being so forthright.

I tend to see 'people eating children' as a lesson in Starvation.

Lean and plenty.

And the desperation that hunger causes. As it is relentless, yet slow in it crawl.

And people will do most anything, besides eat their children, to starve off hunger.

I think that is why it was so alarming.
