Anyhoo, unfortunately for him, he went on to inform me that the world is hollow and the bad guys live on the surface of the inside.
Not a hollow planet: a hollow solar system. The concept has been familiar to Sci Fi since at least the mid-70s. The Ringworld series was a variation; true (Sci Fi) Dyson Spheres appeared somewhere else, maybe in the works of Larry Niven, but I could be wrong and I cannot be arrsed to keep on googling.
Mea culpa. I was thinking of the Dyson Sphere as a hollow planet. Realised it was a hollow solar system and edited it badly. I'll give myself a severe finger-wagging to save you the bother.Dunno about hollow solar systems but I can tell you for absolute sure that David Icke thinks the world is hollow exactly as in that "diagram".
Something that made me stop and think a few years ago - I read David Icke's 'The Big Secret'. It was bought for me as a bit of a joke by BiL.
However much nutty shite the man spouts, he did kick off with a very good point. What would it be like if it was true? Not that I think it is true, but even so - a secret NASA project and a few leaks just like this one would be about right.
Anyhoo, unfortunately for him, he went on to inform me that the world is hollow and the bad guys live on the surface of the inside. I stopped reading at that point because it went from being funny to just not making sense.
But that point has always stuck with me - if the government told such a big lie that exposing it made you look like a nutter - what if?
