Exopolitics as a meme industry.

In October 21, 2009, that is three years ago, Dr. Michael Salla wrote  in the Examiner:
“An official announcement by the Obama administration disclosing the reality of extraterrestrial life is imminent. For several months, senior administration officials have been quietly deliberating behind closed doors how much to disclose to the world about extraterrestrial life. Dissatisfaction among powerful institutions such as the U.S. Navy over the decades-long secrecy policy has given a boost to efforts to disclose the reality of extraterrestrial life and technology.
The impending disclosure announcement follows upon the secret implementation of a year long openness policy on UFOsand extraterrestrial life. Over the period February 12-14, 2008, the United Nations held closed doors discussions where approximately 30 nations secretly agreed on a new openness policy on UFOs and extraterrestrial life in 2009.”
Of course, the ex academic that discovered the extraterrestrials in the Internet, was always wrong. However, he didn’t feel bad because Exopoliticians know perfectly well that their pseudo-science is a fabric of lies and an experiment in delusion.  
Dr Greer knows that alien ships will never visit his living room and Alfred Webre knows that Andy Bassiago never was in Mars or back in time in Gettysburg.
Exopolitics represents a post-modern meme-based prototypal entertainment system. Facts and fictions do not relate to such virtual superliminal constructs as SERPO and Project Camelot, any more than they relate to the Yellow Brick Road of OZ or Bob Hope’s Road to Morocco. If anything good could be said about them, it is that they represent cerebral Pop Art of a very high standard. This is a relatively new genre of highly wrought modern social comedy: it was born between the burgeoning games systems of web virtuality, and got caught between cyber culture, science fiction hallucinations, and countless elitist conspiracies of many a kidney. Having said that, I accept that Exopolitics is an authentic form of post-modern expression, and I rank it with Thunderbirds, Mission Impossible and the UK Dr. Who.
However, I think that great hoaxers do not believe in their own games. When the heaxer becomes a believer, he is finished. He is no more in control of his/her memes.
It looks like the Andy Bassiago time and space jump nonsense, not only divided the Exopolitical movement but won the minds of Webre and some other cosmic gurus.
WE MUST always keep in mind the characteristics of Memes as artificial life. Memes mutate, grow, reproduce and change, and sometimes, like the golem, memes become more powerful than their creators.
