My top goal: when Socrates was on trial for his life, after being convicted, the judges asked him what he thought his punishment should be. He said he thought he should be given free meals in the marketplace for life.

In any establishment of my choosing, with a voucher for me and one guest, I want free meals for life.


Contemplate upon an object. Intensify the process. More. Still more. There- you have conjured up an image just as 'real' as the original...

If...all phenomenon is really 'empty'...then...all external objects in the world AND the perceiving individual...are just illusory projections. Of what? The universal mind.

This consciousness stores our illusions, and in turn these fantasies create our false perception of the individual ego and the external world-each feeds the other.

Ecstatic states enable us to see the situation- the object/subject distinction breaks down, objective reality fades into the mists of
God forgives. I dont

Shadows are all around....the only light I see is the one in my eye, and the one coming off of the computer is said that the real problem of the age is doubt and uncertainty... I disagree.
disintegration... decay... a falling away.... why should one become weak just because one receives unpleasant information?

This is the real cause of our creeping collective weakness- we have lessened our grip. We could have persevered in the face of incriminating data. A peculiar madness could have given us a monstrous strength.

II Thess. 2:11..."And for this cause God will send them a strong delusion so that they will believe a lie"

What happened?

Falsehoods...the imagined purity of the small town versus the big city...the sad story I could tell...

I never answer my door. I rarely answer the phone. I don't want to be bothered with the noise, the inane, the games, the gossip, the accusations, the vapid drama, the unbearable pain, the petty, the absurdity and lies, the stupidity, the bad news.

My fortress has been invaded...intruder alert. I look around for the source; the hidden villain. I seek the unseen creature. I must fight back, before I am overwhelmed...we do not believe in ourselves anymore...too much data has weakened our resolve....the trail of tears...Hiroshima... we have doubts about the home and hearth and is futile. Napalm ...the mercury in my veins...Abu Graib...bad food and water.....radiation, bird flu...street crime...alienation supreme... What have our wars given to us? Debts...The enemy within stalks our sick soul....Never doubt, and your fools paradise might protect you- but for how long?

A metaphysical cancer devourers my soul with gusto.

Romans 1:28 "...God gave them over to a depraved mind..."

Our potential thrown away on vain pursuits...obstacles deliberately strewn in our path by the unseen specters of control....we have been tricked.

Ignorance could be bliss.

" Look down at me and you see a fool;
look up at me and you see a god;
look straight at me and you see yourself"

Pre-Renaissance oil painting, 1338.AD What is the object in the sky? Note that the hills have faces, and seeds are being exchanged. (Hot air balloons were unknown in Europe until 1709)
Hamburg, Germany, 1697 woodcut depiction of a widely witnessed event in the sky

French coin, 1680. The Latin inscription reads " Opportunus ageat" ( It's here at an opportune time)

Nubians overran Egypt around 750 BC, and started building Pyramids south toward their capitol, Meroe. The Nubians built over 220 pyramids, twice as many as the Egyptians. These are slender, steeper angled burial tombs, and had religious significance.

A 19th century Italian adventurer named Ferlini knocked the tips off of 40 of the Nubian pyramids, looking for treasure.

ancient China produced pyramids too-

fuel &engines

Fuel cells work by chemically combining a medium with oxygen to produce electrical energy, which is converted into mechanical energy.
Hydrogen fuel cells are seriously flawed- even though a car might run entirely without gasoline, the hydrogen has to come from somewhere. The hydrogen used for these cells comes from oil or natural gas, in a process called 'reforming.' Instead of each car emitting pollution each time it is run, the pollution is generated when the hydrogen is reformed at the factory. Talk of 'sequestering' the released poisons hasn't gotten very far. If the hydrogen could be cheaply produced from water through electrolysis-the cracking of the bond between oxygen and hydrogen in the water- then the hydrogen alternative would become feasible and healthy. Solar holds great potential for this action, as new breakthroughs in solar energy technology have increased its potential usability in this area- currently, only about 4% of hydrogen is cracked with electrolysis.

The EV1 electric car made (and destroyed) by GM in the mid 1990's would have been a sound step in the right direction to bring a fuel efficient option to the masses. This car could go over 80 mph, and about 100 miles, before needing a 4-6 hour recharge while you slept. The 1,000 people who leased this vehicle loved it in every way- it was aesthetically pleasing and handled well, as was quiet. GM killed the project, due to pressure from oil baron- owned politicians. (www.whokilledthe

Caveat: the EV1 was $45,000, and parts and mechanics that worked on electrics were rare. But the car was novel and needed; its successors would have ironed out the difficult issues and we could have been semi- free from foreign fuel by now if GM had shown some guts and vision.

Whatever limitations electric car batteries may have had have been eliminated (via fuel cell/battery merger and evolution )

Ethanol as a fuel actually could be an almost sound alternative to oil- if corn was never used. Corn for ethanol/gas is a dumb idea, as you really don't get any energy surplus from the conversion/use. Plus, using corn can only raise food prices. Ethanol derived from other plant sources- sugar cane, or switch grass- would make more sense. Ethanol production centers are owned by Exxon-Mobil, who in turn own Cheney, Bush, Bernacke, and Pelosi.
Rainwater that falls on your roof or yard technically belongs to the state- it is illegal for you to collect it ( obviously, a very rarely enforced law ; that could change soon due to a looming worldwide water scarcity crisis)


Ripley's 'Believe it not' once said that the sandwich was invented around 1700 by the Earl of Sandwich- he loved card games so much, he did not have time to eat proper meals- so he thought of the idea to slap meat and vegetable between two pieces of bread, thus allowing him the freedom to gamble with one hand, and chomp down on his creation with the other hand...

Maybe not-

... by 1650, tavern patrons in Holland were eating meat, pita, and sauce creations from chunks of meat cut from hanging sides of goat....

...during the middle ages, people would eat off of 'trenchers,' a very hard, thick, crust of bread that served as a plate. The soggy remains would be given to dogs, or beggars.

The Jewish scholar Hillel wrote around 50 AD about putting meat upon matzoh bread...

Sumer was the worlds first complex civilization (?) A permanent agricultural city-state formed in Mesopotamia (now southern Iraq) about 3,500 BC.

Sumerian's invented the potters wheel, boats with sails, and they were the first to use the alloy bronze. Pictographic writing evolved into Cuneiform (about 3,100 BC)

Legend tells of a half-man, half fish like creature rising out of the sea-he was called Oannes. It was he who taught the Sumerians how to count and tell time, devise a calender, use herbs to heal, and predict eclipses.

Sumer lasted until about 2,000 BC... the area eventually became 'Babylon.'

In 1976, Zecharia Sitchin published a work called 'The 12th Planet'...he was intrigued by a Sumerian tablet showing a star map...making a lot out of very little evidence, Sitchin speculated that an unknown Planetoid object, with a wide elliptical orbit around the sun, passed close to earth about every 3,600 years, bringing devastation here in its wake. This object has been called Marduk, Niribiru, Wormwood,or Planet X. This objects flyby is said to have been responsible for the events in the biblical book of Exodus- the parting of the Red (Reed) Sea, about 1,450 BC.

19th century astronomers thought they detected strange gravitational pertubutions among the outer planets- a tug that could be explained by postulating the existence of a hidden outer planet. In the 1990's, space probes were finally able to determine that the gravitational readings were false.
But in Feb 2008, two Japanese scientists announced that they have found a earth sized planet orbiting the sun far beyond Pluto....

In 1917, three Portuguese children began to see visions...eventually, on October 13 1917, a crowd of 70,000 gathered to witness 'The miracle of the Sun,' a promised event from the being that spoke to the children....The clouds parted, and the Sun appeared to dance, spin, dim, weave, and zig-zag toward the ground. Witnesses forty miles away saw the same event. The 'Lady of Fatima' gave three secrets to the children...the first two are known, and dealt with war and repentance - the third was sealed in an envelope until 1960...when the Pope read it, he cried out with agony and nearly fainted...

Is it possible that the ancients knew about the regular orbit of a now unknown celestial object, an object that periodically comes near to the earth and disrupts civilization with storms, earthquakes, floods and pestilence?
Did the Mayans track this object, and did their astronomers know that it would return in 2012? Will the pole-shift happen soon?

"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven,burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became Wormwood, and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter" Revelation 8: 10,11

The Vatican built several observatories after 1960...
