    Default mystery of toynbee tiles

    Anyone ever heard of this? Just watched a documentary on netflix. It's really awesome.

    Basically a guy has a theory about life after death and shares it via tiles embedded in streets. He is like an even more secretive banksy crossed with v from v for vendetta. And a real person.

    I read a short article somewhere about them once. Can't say I know too much about them though. What was the documentary called? Got me interested.

    The same reason people care about other theories.

    Mainly because its presented in such a bizarre fashion. The guy created a completely new identity, lives alone and only comes out st night, has put these tiles solo up and down the east coast AND in south America. He also interrupts news channels and has a pirate radio station.

    It's not so much about the theory, more about the man behind it. On his tiles there's sidebars about the govenrment trying to kill him, all kindsaa stuff.

    As for the name, I can't recall. It's on netflix and the dudes own toynbee.net so it shouldn't he tough to track down.

    You make it seem like Banksy isn't a real person with 'and a real person'.

    For the people asking, I did what Osterboy didn't want to do, here is the name of the doc: "Resurrect Dead: Mystery of Toynbee Tiles"

    Also, toynbee.net is something different, it's a review site, has nothing to do with the tiles.

    Seems like the movie is more about the passion people have for mystery.
