A Brand New Paranoid Delusion

I found this via Fark. Normally, I don't pass these along as most of the people interested check Fark regularly, but this article about Harry Potter surprised me. We've all seen the tired old "The goal of the Potter book is to recruit kids to Satanism". We've also seen the countering "No. No. No. It's just well written escapist fantasy." According to the author of the linked article, when you are given only two choices, "it always means there’s a third, or more, that they’re not telling you about". The truth is out there, you might say...

The article uses the basic principles of extra dimensions from theoretical physics to explain why the occult is real. In physics, the extra dimensions refer to the dimensions used in string theory equations that go beyond length, width, height, and time. The author takes those concepts and other "overwhelming evidence" to explain that the Potter series is a primer on the 4th dimension and its evil, controlling inhabitants.

One of the examples is the symbolism of all the numberology used in the books. There is a litany of references to the numbers 3, 7, 11, 13, and 21 as recurring and significant. Kind of reminds me of the Bible Code. What about the number 4? As in 4 Privet drive. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs were a gang of *gasp* 4! Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw make one...two...three...four! Four houses! What is Rowling trying to say here? Oh wait, four does not have special occult meaning. Disregard all THAT symbolism.

There is much more entertainment to be gleaned here. My favorite is in the further reference section. Just in case you need to learn more about the basis behind this 4d stuff. Apparently, a good resource is the book "The Illuminati Formula For Creating a Totally Undetectable Mind Control Slave". I wonder if it involves orbital lasers?
