Anti and The PAX Pandemic Theory
Whenever PAX season is up, we always hear stories of people catching sickness in the convention, more popularly known as the “PAX Plague”. It manifests into a variety of symptoms, most of the time flu-like. What does this have to do with Antisepticeye, you ask? We’ll get to that.
Let’s first look at the science behind this phenomenon. Every person has a unique immune system designed to protect our bodies from threats. Our immune systems constantly teaches itself how to fight these threats by documenting all its past encounters and learning from them. (This is also how vaccines work; it teaches our immune systems before it even encounters the actual threat.)
Since we all have our own unique experiences and encounters, it makes sense if my body is resistant to a pathogen your immune system has no idea how to fight, and vice versa.
Now, our bodies are constantly carrying thousands and thousands of pathogens, especially our filthy hands which harbor a shit ton of them. We don’t feel our bodies reacting to these invisible threats because our immune systems are familiar to them. (I feel dirty just thinking about millions of these microscopic monsters.)
Can you imagine the horrors of putting thousands of people from all over the world in a crammed space, each carrying their own sets of pathogens? The germophobe inside me shouts “biological hazard”. It shouldn’t really be surprising to get ill especially if you’re in a closed space full of pathogens from all over the world that your poor immune system has no idea how to deal with. Conventions are nightmare fuel for introverts and germophobes alike.
Okay, moving on. I’m pretty sure everyone’s aware of the surprise Anti Intro that happened in PAX by now. (If not, go look it up. It was AWESOME.) No one expected that, just like the current trend in Jack’s videos nowadays about diseases and death. Plenty of people are theorizing about Jack planning something up, but I beg to to differ.
What if…the plan already commenced? And we are just witnessing Phase 2?
You see, if I was a bio-terrorist (which I’m not, trust me; I’m too scared to even handle a frozen virus sample in a zip-loc), I would release my “weapon” some place where people from all over the world are gathered in one convenient location. Sounds like a very familiar convention, right?
If, for example, I want to release a deadly mutated strain of Ebola, I can go to conventions to “meet and greet” with tons of people, casually spreading the virus on handrails, doorknobs, faucets, lounges, and all that. By the time people are back in their own countries and homes, they are already walking carriers spreading havoc for me. Give it a few months (or even weeks) and you’ll have a global pandemic if the disease is left unhandled or carelessly handled. (If USAMRIID is looking at this, please don’t shut down my blog or track me down. This is just a fan theory.)
Now this is something Dark wouldn’t do; his style leans more towards emotional and psychological manipulation, lulling you into a false sense of security. This plan is too “loud” for someone as manipulative as him. No, this is a plan that would be orchestrated by a maniac who craves attention; someone who desires chaos, mass hysteria, and sheer mayhem. I’m talking about Anti.
The PAX intro was him introducing the commencement of his plans to us. His last line “enjoy the show” was his way of telling us to sit back and watch as he shakes the world without breaking a sweat. Of course, he didn’t do this plan on his own. He has a companion to help him in his grandiose plan of terror: no other than Dr. Schneeplestein.
He is the perfect candidate for such companionship: a failed doctor with a bruised ego, equipped with the medical skills for killing, as opposed to saving people. The reappearance of the two is nothing but them reminding us of their existence, foreshadowing the conclusion of their plans through games.
And if you think this sounds all too sci-fi for you, thenk think again. With the emergence of CRISPR technology and an actual programming language for sequencing genomes, we are entering a new era for bioengeneering and synthetic biology.
Paired with the convenience brought by the Internet, game over. You can actually buy equipment and dormant virus samples online. If anyone questions you, you can pretend that you’re making a research paper and you need stuff for your study. (Of course, you need to actually be knowledgeable about this stuff. This isn’t some sort of baking soda volcano you can assemble just like that.)
We still aren’t sure what kind of bio-weapon Anti and Dr. S cooked up for us. But whatever it is, if you encountered Jack during PAX, you’re probably infected with this hypothetical bio-weapon.
BUT HEY, THAT’S JUST A THEORY. A (VERY ELABORATE) FAN THEORY (that took me long to finish writing)!
(This is what happens when you fuel a nerd with the passion of a fan.)
