has anyone seen all those comments being spammed on beatle vids on youtube?

here is one for instance: "

learn the true meanings inside the beatles songs

go to Truthcontest()com and read THE PRESENT page 59 (beatles section)"

i was wondering what you beatles fans think about it…

I think I don't care what people write as comments on youtube as most of it is crap. I certainly wont be going to wherever the place is that has the truth behind beatle songs.

I just read a few pages of that essay.  The writer is intelligent, but also a schizophrenic gnostic.  As such, he seems incapable of discerning the difference between his own thoughts and wishes, from reality outside himself (i.e., he suffers from an arrested development of infantile narcissism).  Most schizophrenics and gnostics have an object of their obsession which focuses all their obsessive feelings and ideas.  This guy's object of obsession happens to be the Beatles.  When you read his stuff, it has a complex logic of its own where -- inside that world -- it fits together and seems to make sense.  A gullible person could easily get sucked into thinking it might be true.

It's just religious spam and the comments are just 'bots which carpet-bomb comment sections.  Sort of like the ones you see on Facebook comment links, that say something to the effect of "My Cousin makes $1012 a week from her home blahblahblah click this link…".

 

Just ignore it and never comment back on it.

you guys are right, most things on youtube are trash, but this doesn't seem like the typical spam. i don't think there are any ads on the site. it's interesting why people would take the time to spread this? plus, about the bots thing, i saw a comment that said that people write all the comments, not bots.

The only reason why they would waste all that time trying to ''spread the word'' is that they truly believe it. Why else would you do it? Surely there are more constructive and/or interesting things you could be doing with your time.

It seems you guys are confusing the online phenomenon of videos/comments, with the actual online book on which all those videos and comments are based.  Apparently, some individual wrote this weird book, then after that it generated a "community" of followers.

It was the book I was commenting about. I haven't seen any of the videos or read any of the commentary.

Well that's even weirder. You must believe it to go to the trouble of writing a book. People are strange.

You don't even know the half of it. Once you read a few pages of that book, you see that guy is DEEP into that very strange myth he has developed about the Beatles being modern "prophets" of ancient divine wisdom.

^ Absolutely mad. Each to their own, though.

i think i agree with most of you that the writer might be mad or something, but i do agree that the beatles were very fucking magical, and therefore could have channeled things beyond their own minds.

Well, any and all artists are "channeling" something.  That's what the ancient symbolism of the "Muses" was all about.  The only question is how good the art is (= how much "more" they are "channeling").
