Thank you for answering the question. It is intriguing to think this may be possible.
I will seriously embark on searching for patterns. Techniques are well established in advertising. To create such a direct visual or reference to a Gulf of Mexico oil fire in a movie before it happens is pretty stark tho. If those dots can be connected, I would want to know how this is possible.
May I ask however, in this particular movie called Knowing, would this be considered a direct black ops effort, or just the influenced type. Or would this be a coincidence? I don't know the lingo so am fumbling for words to ask the question properly.
And if I may, one other question... is there a movie or director that you could point to that you would deem to be a direct black ops thing? It would at least help in establishing a baseline.
Thank you for your response. It is courteous and serious and I receive it as such.
