Yes, - I'd call them Debunkers (lol)

Seriously, I agree that it's like putting together a puzzle, as you said, and imv it's the ability to keep on "thinking outside of the Box" which is of primary importance. Most who post at or read these Boards are doing the latter, to a greater or lesser extent.

Take a writer, or an artist, or a philosopher, or indeed any individual who has the ability to think and explore independently of mainstream thinking. All of these people experience what I might call "other frequencies", are open to creative inspiration and/or deductive logical thinking.

And, in the greater scheme of things, there's The Group Psyche: which affects all of us, in different ways, always lurking in the cosmic background. Screnwriter, Dan O'Brien, who penned movies such as "Alien", has some thoughts on this, when he spoke about its affect on Holywood's creative cycle:

======================================


" Cycles do go around. For example, Hollywood is going through a Jane Eyre cycle now. And, for years, science fiction replaced westerns. Sci-fi has legs now like westerns used to have, and they serve the same purpose for the audience. One completely childish fantasy replaced another as westerns became sci-fi."

He added that these cycles could be accredited to the invisible development of a group or cultural psyche.

"I never was completely convinced of the group psyche concept, and it was a scary thing for me when I was confronted with it."

O'Bannon used the name of his young son as an example. He chose to name his son Adam, believing that it would prove an unusual enough name to distinguish his child. He later learned that approximately one third of the boys born at that time received the same name!

"That proved the existence of a group consciousness to me, and that I was a part of it!"

=====================================




Mainstream Thinking attempts to categorise us and label our thinking, as in for instance:

"Different aspects of the personality, depending critically on the individual, are represented in this model by groups of basins of attraction. These may be slowly changing in time, under the effects of learning, adaptation, stimuli, and so on. Now that chaos theory and fractal geometry have emerged, we expect that fractal boundaries of these psychological regions are the rule, rather than the exception. "

(From Erodynamics and the Dischaotic Personality)


But true and original thinking and questioning doesn't owe allegiance to such abstract concepts, imv: there's a deeper and more prevailing Influence out there, which prompts us, nudges us and inspires us to go on thinking outside of that Box, and to persevere with piecing the great cosmic puzzle together.
