On April 1, a Facebook user Gocha Chumashvili published a Russian video which talks about a Blue Beam project. According to the video, Blue Beam is a joint project by NASA and the United Nations that, using the strongest technologies, aims to spread a new religion on Earth and create various simulations to establish total control on people and establish the “New World Order”.
Blue Beam is a conspiracy theory that has been around since 1994 and taken the “New World Order” conspiracy further.
- What is the Blue Beam?
Blue Beam is a conspiracy theory that develops the “New World Order” conspiracy. According to conspiracy theorists, the processes described in the Blue Beam theory are the steps, necessary to establish the “New World Order”.
According to the Blue Beam theorists, NASA and the UN have begun to produce highly advanced technology. Using this technology, the entire Earth will see a simulation in the sky that would be created using satellites, located at different locations on the Earth. As the conspiracy goes, using this method, and in cooperation with the Antichrist, a simulation of the Second Coming will be created and all humans on the Earth will be united under a single religion under the framework of the Blue Beam. This way, establishing the total control will become easier and other stages necessary for establishing the “New World Order” will not take too long either.
The video, disseminated by Gocha Chumashvili, also mentions the author of the Blue Beam theory. Serge Monast was a Canadian investigative journalist, who investigated conspiracy theorists, who published a book called Project Blue Beam (NASA) in 1994. In his book, Monast described the stages of establishing the common religion in detail. In 1996, he died from a heart attack. His death raised doubts among his followers. They still believe that Monast was actually poisoned using a “psychotropic weapon”.
Interestingly, the Blue Beam theory, published by Monast, is identical to an earlier concept by Gene Roddenberry, a screenwriter of an American franchise Star Trek. In Roddenberry’s screenplay, aliens try to invade the Earth and initially send religious leaders, created via technological simulation, to the Earth with the aim of shattering the faith among people and then spread their own religion. Paramount rejected Roddenberry’s idea for Star Trek, so he drafted another idea and one of the iconic pieces of the franchise – the Motion Picture – was aired in 1979. However, Roddenberry did not discard the initial version and published it as a novel, several years before Monast published his book.

It is noteworthy that the Blue Beam conspiracy once again came under the spotlight during the coronavirus pandemic, as in the scenario, described by Monast, the Antichrist resorts to epidemics at the third, final stage of establishing control over humans. Conspiracy theorists believe that this process has already begun.
