and how this stuff cross-pollinates with hollywood, with television, with the games industry is also fascinating. these fictions are how people understand their lives and reality

"Black ooze" could be a metaphor for a certain other black ooze that's fairly important in geopolitical terms, no?

Reza Negarestani to thread, please...

it's interesting actually how apolitical The X-Files is for a show that seems to be all about attacking deep state structures

the true enemy of Mulder and Scully seems to mostly be...FBI bureaucracy

conspiracy (like traditional myth and religion) is a collectivised open source fiction world and the entertainment industry is shameless about drawing from it.

Prometheus as the best Alien franchise film is complete madness

if it doesn't have Sigourney Weaver, it ain't a candidate for best Alien film

Is black ooze related to grey goo?
grey goo is theoretical nanotechnology apocalypse, black ooze was a sentient ooze from space that took over host bodies

so in a "reducing a primal human fear and/or questions of identity or self to protean ooze" sense, yes
