In order for superstition to propagate, it needs something that seems reliable, a surrogate. After the reactive mind hooks unto a surrogate by taking it for real, life is opened for an endless array of mental garbage that will infest and program it towards its end.
Surrogates like Santa Claus drinking Coca Cola may prove to be more powerful suggestions or commands than just any naked girl sitting on a Goodyear tire.
A child may clash with surrogates at an early age or succumb to them.
Much as not every bloody corpse stands for Jesus Christ, so it is most unlikely that every Santa will stand then Turing test as father figure. The reactive mind being primitive, it may even associate pole shift and precession with the bloody elf king of North Pole. If someone speaks softly and carries a big stick, Santa is candidate: surely your own stick is in his sack!
Beating Santa with your own stick may appear too theatrical a demonstration within a dramatic scenario. Surely, people who kill Santa do the same?
The reactive mind may be the mind of this world. Superstition works in tandem with marginalization of data for the benefit of promoting disinformation. Thus, in its adamant asinine self-assurance, it calls itself “tradition”, while NASA gets the label of “fringe”.
