I can't believe this show is even allowed to play. David looks at simple structures and speculates about what he thinks they may "be". No definitive proof is offered at all. When he shows the photos that have been blurred beyond recognition he says he sees certain shapes and speculates about them. This is a perfect film to demonstrate what "Matrixing" is. It's like seeing bunny rabbits in clouds. Don't waste your time on this show.
