Decemystery (2022.3) 20: Fox is Here


Well, I had said in a previous write-up this month that I wanted to cover this story at some point in the future alongside another. After much consideration, I decided that I may as well do both of them today!

I’m a simple man. While I’ve read about a lot of wild stuff and looked into a ton of weirdness, there is a lot I know little about. Two of those topics are mysticism and anything new-age. I cannot, for the life of me, wrap my head around either topic, even though I’ve tried.

Ideological stuff is another thing that I struggle with, but I’d rather save that for another day when I tackle a story that’s ideological in nature. For now, today’s story is something that dives into some mystical mysteriousness. Thankfully, it doesn’t require a whole lot of knowledge in order to get it. So I won’t need to give a half-baked lecture on anything.

Fox is Here is a story from the Conspiracy Iceberg. That’s about where the sensible stuff ends; this is easily one of the weirdest entries on that Iceberg. So come along, dear reader; it’s time to pull some Dan Brown-level shenanigans and find out the real names of God and The Devil!

Fox On The Run

Pointless fun fact: this story has the distinct honor of nearly inspiring me to write a bit of creative fiction about it. I didn’t, however, because my grasp of creative fiction died around 2018 when I started this blog. Just thought I’d tell you all that.

I’m pulling information for this write-up from two 4chan posts. The first is one that I cited when we went over The Sad Man earlier this month; you can read it here. The second post is more or less the same but has a teensy bit more description. If you’re wondering where the story originates from, then your guess is as good as mine. I went through the 4plebs archive, and as far as I can tell, the earliest mention of the story was on March 5, 2018, by that user who talked about “shark entities.” I went over them when I discussed The TED Talk “There Is Nothing” Incident at the start of the month; I think they go by “Modem.” So, unless the story was found elsewhere, I’m inclined to believe it comes from them. If you’re curious, their explanation of the story is the same as the one in the first hyperlink.

This conspiracy can be split into two sections, but they somehow tie together. Exactly how I have no idea; it comes across as two very different topics merged into one. Anyway, let me start off with the one I mentioned in the introduction since it’s the titular story.

Supposedly, the phrase “Fox is Here” is an anagram that contains the names of God and The Devil. That’s all there is; you can find the names of both God and The Devil within that phrase. As I alluded to in the introduction, this whole thing sounds like something out of a Dan Brown novel, only considerably less wordy.

My immediate guess is that both God and the Devil are named “Fox,” and both are diehard fans of The X-Files. Due to their ideological differences and the fact Fox Mulder is their favorite character, this has resulted in this theory. Of course, I could be completely wrong, and one of their names is Soehixe. I prefer my version.

Truthfully, I find that to be one of the most baffling claims in history. Even from the perspective of it being a troll, I find it absolutely bonkers. Despite that, I’m unashamed to admit I spent a bit of time trying to figure out if I could find any names within the phrase. Unfortunately, none sounded biblical enough for my liking.

Anyway, that’s the first half of the conspiracy. The second half has absolutely nothing to do with that part. It’s like if you watched The Goonies, then followed it up by watching The Transporter and said it was a sequel. Allegedly, the nature of reality is not what we believe it to be. It is not a simulation; it wasn’t created by God, nor was it the product of the Big Bang. Rather, it’s a void that is filled by a gigantic face, and reality is a dream in order to avoid having to look at this face.

Now, here’s where the two previously-linked 4chan posts diverge. The first one I linked states that the phrase “Fox is Here” outright contains a hint of some sort to this face. Exactly how isn’t specified, but I’m sure if you run it through Google Translate enough, you’ll eventually end up with, “Reality  is a dream to hide from a giant face in an endless void.”

As for the second post, it removes any connection this giant face has to the phrase “Fox is Here.” Instead, it says that there were “troubling accounts” from those who survived near-death experiences, which were documented by “clandestine government agencies.” The post goes on to claim the reports written by these alphabet soup agencies reveal that the afterlife is nothing more than an enormous face “that fills the entire field of view.” It also says that “descriptions of the face were redacted.”

To digress for a moment, the mention of the face being redacted led me to imagine it being someone or something completely unimposing or silly. Like, just imagine if it was the face of Dilbert. Suddenly, the menace is gone, and I can’t help but laugh; how am I supposed to be scared of frigging Dilbert? It’s Dilbert.

Or even better, what if it was Genie from Aladdin? I mean, Genie is awesome! He’s arguably one of the greatest Disney characters ever. If reality is Genie, I feel like every Fortean event can be explained away as him pulling a microscopic level of tomfoolery on us all. I’m not sure about Dilbert, though; maybe Scott Adams was bored or something.

Anyway, enough of that digression; let’s hop back on track—albeit only for a bit. You see, after that, the post rounds off by saying that “new age” stories of near-death experiences were “disseminated” to the mainstream public in order to “ward off suspicion.”

With that, the tale of “Fox is Here” concludes. It’s a surreal conspiracy and, honestly, one of my favorites out there. Though, it isn’t the end of this write-up. No, there is a bit more I want to go over very quickly.


It wouldn’t be a Conspiracy Iceberg write-up without a few of these, now would it? Indeed, there are a few variations to the story. However, there are variations that I could find absolutely nothing on; as a result, I won’t be going over them in the theories section. I merely want to make a note of them because they’re quite interesting.

The first comes from a 4chan post made on October 14, 2020. In it, the user asked for information on Fox is Here; the first reply gave a bit of information. It reads as follows:

In ancient sumerian annunaki legends there was a magical fox that was important indirectly into the creation of humans.

Ignore all the memes specially your pic related and wiccan crap and look into the legends themselves to understand what is important about the fox.

I know absolutely nothing about Sumerians, but I do know of the Anunnaki. For those who don’t know, they were gods worshipped by the Sumerians; some believe they were malevolent aliens who enslaved humans and had them mine for gold and other resources. There are some who go so far as to tie them to the infamous Nibiru. I want to do a full-fledged write-up on them, but it’s honestly a daunting topic due to how much there is to it. If you’re into aliens or conspiracies (or both), I recommend reading about it. It’s a pretty interesting topic, and even if you don’t buy into it, it’s a fascinating look into ancient human civilization.

The second variation is one that might get a full-blown write-up if I’m ever able to find enough on it. It was mentioned twice, once on a thread from April 16, 2020, and then the following month on a thread from May 2, 2020. Coincidentally, both replies mentioning Fox is Here came the day after the threads began. Both also read the exact same; I have no idea if they were from the same person or not.

Purportedly, in 2011 or 2012, a self-proclaimed “time traveler” posted on /x/. In the thread, the individual spoke about “self-developing algorithmic intelligences” he’d created. Each of the names was a combination of a color and an animal; “Grey Fox” was one of them. However, that one was apparently “underdeveloped” at the time.

I have personally never heard of this thread, and I have no clue if it’s even real. If someone out there knows, I would love to hear about it. Though, I digress; let’s move on.

The third and final variation comes from Modem themselves, though it isn’t really a variation. At least, I don’t think so. Regardless, on June 15, 2020, Modem posted one of their many, many cryptic threads and invited people to enquire about some topics they presented. The following day, they replied to one user with the following:

Report: as such, Leviathan Busters are weapons that reset externalization vectors. they kind of undo the cutting of the umbilical that was initiated by cogito ergo sum. "the pigs began to speak" is an Kalki Scenario disguised as a Leviathan Buster, and the other way around. there are others. some are social, economic, political ("the pigs began to speak", for example, which crashes civilizations through the de-occlusion of "how the sausage is made"), and others are more ontological, involve the fabric of space and time ("FOX IS HERE" is the Kalki Scenario of your civilization projected on a cosmological scale, the Face seen in the "afterlife" is actually your face, space contracting into Omega until you wrap around your own head and there is only you and you, staring into your own doll's-eyes for all eternity: This Is What You Wanted

The whole exchange Modem had with the users is weird; I don’t understand any of it, but the mention of “Fox is Here” caught my eye. Also, apparently, Kalki is the tenth (and final) incarnation of the Hindu god, Vishnu. I’m not sure if that means anything since I know nothing about Hinduism, but I figured that warranted being mentioned.

With all of that said and done, it’s time to finally jump into the theories. As I said before, I won’t be incorporating these variations into them as they’re not mentioned anywhere near as much. However, that time traveler account is one I do want to look for more information on. Anyway, onward we go!


1. A hidden truth

Cue up that Imagine Dragons song Believer because our first theory is that this is all real!

Admittedly, I have absolutely nothing to go off of when it comes to the theories today. I never saw anything online (by which I mean that I saw nothing on 4chan) where people debated if this theory was legitimate or not. It doesn’t help that a name like “Fox is Here” is broad enough that I get a lot of results for posts including one of those words. Given Fox News is one of the largest news outlets in the United States, a few posts mention them.

Despite that, it stands to reason that at least one person believes in this theory. I believe that the law of probability dictates it, actually. If not, then I’m dumber than I thought. Anyway, to unabashedly rain on the parade of that hypothetical one person: there really isn’t anything to back this theory up. Like, nothing whatsoever.

At the most, you can make a weird argument involving the simulation theory having a hyper-advanced AI that has a really scary face. Personally, I’m extremely skeptical of the simulation theory, but that would be just about the one way it would make sense to me. Unless, of course, death leads you to constantly be face-to-face with whoever created reality. If that’s the case, then you may as well just send us to the Akashic Records because life after death is going to be one long edition of storytime in my eyes.

2. It was made up for a Conspiracy Iceberg

A considerable number of entries on the Conspiracy Iceberg—by which I mean the largest one I’ve seen—carry this theory. It’s why it’s become a staple of conspiracy write-ups.

Much to my disappointment, however, I could not trace this story back to any specific point on 4plebs. As far as I can tell, it’s one that likely sprang up and, over the course of time, was molded into what it is today. It’s also possible it’s a theory that exists in some capacity, and I’m simply unaware of it.

Whatever the case may be, it bears repeating that this theory is extremely plausible for a multitude of entries on the Conspiracy Iceberg. In fact, I’m considering adding a “Meme Theory” tag for them since they’re so abundant. However, I haven’t decided if I want to do that since I already have an absurd number of tags as is, and I doubt many people actively seek out meme theories to read about.

On one final note, if this was made up for the Iceberg, I can’t say that it lacks creativity. In fact, I’d say they ought to make a short story based on this; it’s equal parts interesting and terrifying. A mixture of Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft; count me in!

3. It’s something else entirely, and I’m too dumb to find what that is

There’s a great misconception amongst my family and friends that I am, in fact, smart. The truth is: I can’t even cook, much less do research into anything that I write about. Nevertheless, I am told that I’m of above-average intelligence. Folks, I’m incapable of operating a simple can opener. Please, never mistake me for an intelligent person.

Nor should you ever mistake me for someone who can do adequate research; our third theory is that I’m a dimwit who cannot find additional information on the story. If you’ve read this blog for any period of time, you know very well that I freely admit to being a poor researcher. I am not a Pulitzer Prize journalist, nor am I a YouTuber who can put together documentaries worthy of being shown at festivals. I’m some guy who writes because it makes him happy.

This theory can, in all honesty, be applied to any Conspiracy Iceberg write-up, but here, it’s on incredibly shaky ground. Not only does this story have nothing going for it outside of 4chan posts, but I don’t know of any new-age beliefs that follow this concept. Though maybe there’s some esotericism involved here. I don’t know; I’m writing this while my eyes burn from exhaustion. This is what Cyclops must feel when he uses those eye beams.

4. It’s a ballroom blitz

Two Sweet references in one write-up? What a steal!

My Take

I began this write-up back in August; I stopped because of a health scare. I’m finishing it in October. After re-reading what I’d written, I’m amazed that I did not once think to mention the creepy faces from The Wyoming Incident or the character “Face” from Cosbydaf’s amazing NES Godzilla Creepypasta. Just take a look at them and tell me that one of these staring at you wouldn’t be the worst imaginable fate.

If I had to pick one, I’d go with Face. At least he would be able to ask me questions. 

Now, as for my take, I don’t think this theory has any merit. Even by the standards of meme entries, this one is way too far-fetched to have an iota of believability. I’m far from the smartest man alive, but I doubt that any government on Earth could bury a story like this. Here in the United States, our politicians can’t keep their illegal doings under wraps. Just take a look at Bob Menendez—a United States Senator; he couldn’t keep his embezzling fiasco out of the news! Don’t tell me they can keep some clandestine nonsense like this all hush-hush.

As for the variations, I have nothing to add. Given the earliest mention of this story, as far as the 4plebs archive is concerned, is from Modem, I’m inclined to believe that “Fox is Here” has to do with the story we went over and not one of the other two. However, I will admit that that Grey Fox story sounds quite fascinating, and I would love to read more about it (if I ever find it, and if I get the time).

Now, on one final note, I want to echo myself and reiterate one thing: I truly find this entire story creative. Specifically, the part about the giant face is something I find deeply unsettling. Sure, I joked about it during the main story, but it is unnerving to imagine reality as a dream to escape the gaze of a gargantuan, presumably malevolent face. So, kudos to whoever first made up the theory (be it that Modem fellow or someone else). It’s pretty damn scary.


Well, another enigmatic entry on the Conspiracy Iceberg is down and out for the count. God willing, I will get around to many others next year; I would like to do the majority of them during the blog’s lifetime. How long that will take is beyond me and not something I actively think about, though. The future is my oyster, and I intend to make it the best it can possibly be. Well, I intend to try to do that.

Anyway, until next time, I hope you enjoyed this foray into the realm of conspiracy. I know I did; this was a blast to write about. And as always, stay happy, stay healthy, and thank you for reading!
