I tend to go with the view that sync events appear in movies because they have already happened (time looping back on itself).
In the past movies seemed to predict events years in advance. But now time has speed up until the event and the unconscious movie projection of the event precisely conincide as in the case of the Sandy Hook shootings and the movie Jack Reacher. No spoilers here...check the film out for yourself.
This would indicate some kind of zero point in time. The loop stops because it has arrived back at its origin point. The end of time exactly as P.K. Dick described it in Exegesis.
Semantics are a big deal to me here since people say "End Times" (implying destruction) when it is actually "The End of Time" (implying a demarcation point).
"Neither the palm tree garden world [Hyperuniverse I (the real)] nor the black iron prison world [Hyperuniverse II (the fake)] are our universe. Ours is the hologram composite of the two: they are the two laser sources."—P.K. Dick, Exegesis
In our hologrammatic world we are easily distracted by counterfeit events (projections from the fake/defective/evil Hyperuniverse II that seem real).
"We are concerned with these spurious elements as they manifest themselves interwoven with the real in our universe. The only way they can be expunged is by expunging the BIP II hyperuniverse or track: one must aim at the source."—P.K. Dick, Exegesis
These counterfeit events must be unveiled and traced back to the corrupted source, but the corrupted source will do ANYTHING to survive. This is the entire storyline of the movie Jack Reacher.
The (Lee) Doorman has opened the gate of the black Iron prison and the prisoners are saved.
Incidently, the movie Jack Reacher was based on a book written by Lee Child. Lee Child=Lee Dorman. The Child is the Doorman.
