There are a lot of mysteries in the world we want to know the answers to, and the absence of any kind of proof of these create what we know now as conspiracy theories. From Jay-Z and Beyoncé being in the Illuminati to staged fake moon landings, conspiracy theories are some of the most outlandish ways we try to make sense of things that frankly, don’t make a lick of sense. Even the COVID-19 crisis is opening up some pretty alarming (and ridiculous) conspiracy theories of its own. But let’s not get into that.
We’re here to share some conspiracy theory-videos that have kept us company and eerily entertained in the late, late hours and can make you ask yourself––
“What the hell am I watching?”
The Vanishing of Flight 370
The 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is a very recent tragedy, but also one shrouded in conspiracy. Planes disappearing without a trace have happened before–just take the most famous example of Amelia Earhart. But with all our modern technology and the search for this airplane being the most expensive in history, how is it that we’ve gained almost no new knowledge about it even six years later? LEMMiNO gives us all the details, including theories by officials and the online community alike.
Cracking the Code of Cicada 3301
Back in 2012, an elaborate puzzle was posted on 4chan for anyone to solve. Since then, several other puzzles have been released by an unknown organization nicknamed Cicada 3301. While we know nothing about about them, we do know that the puzzles were meant to be a way to recruit intelligent individuals, but for reasons we still don’t know.
3 Creepy Cases for Ancient Aliens
If there’s any topic out there that can claim to push the matter of conspiracy theories to mainstream consciousness, it’s the search for proof on the existence of extraterrestrial life.
In a universe so expansive and with so much of it unknown to us, it’s impossible to think we’re the only ones living in it. And with the United States’ Pentagon confirming UFO sightings, considering that aliens could be on Earth isn’t the most farfetched thing you could think about. Buzzfeed’s famous Unsolved series has already touched on some alien conspiracies that are out there, and it’s a pretty enjoyable hole to fall into.

Is Reality Real?
At some point in our lives, we’ve all questioned the idea of our existence. What does it all mean, and do we even exist? For a lot of us, the 1999 movie The Matrix probably implanted the idea of living in a simulation in our heads, and it’s been stuck with us ever since. Kurzgesagt animation studio explains to us just how much of a possibility this could be. Fair warning: you might break your brain just thinking about it.
