So they say. They all said that. They said it would be a long, cold winter. They say coffee is loaded with antioxidents. They say we should change our passwords annually. They say research shows… They said this. They said that. Did you ever wonder who ‘they’ are? They apparently know everything about all that is and all that ever was. They even seem to be able to predict the future. Really, who are the omniscient ‘They’?
I decided to do some investigating to see if there were any clues as to who ‘They’ might be. I consulted with Professor Google, social media, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, the UNESCO library and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. There were no accounts or pages belonging to ‘They.’ No references to, quotes by, hints, innuendos or anything specifically related to ‘They.’
Next I researched Mystics, Elders, sages, Gurus, prophets, oracles, old crones, Carnac the Magnificent, but nothing definitive stood out. However, there were indicators sprinkled in amongst the general information about each of the seers. Those clues sparked some theories, which has me wondering if any of you reading this have some ideas as to who ‘They’ might be. If so, feel free to share. What scares me would be discovering that the omniscient ‘They’ is actually some kid with a Magic 8 Ball.
