That common language is science and mathematics.

The laws of Nature are the same everywhere:..."

Page 287

"What one would look for, therefore, would be a universal language, the kind of language that would be comprehensible to any technologically advanced society in any epoch, even a thousand or ten thousand years into the future. Such languages are few and far between, but mathematics is one of them - and the city of Teotihuacan may be the calling-card of a lost civilization written in the eternal language of mathematics."

"Of all the other stupendous inventions,' Galileo once remarked,

what sublimity of mind must have been his who conceived how to communicate his most secret thoughts to any other person, though very distant either in time or place, speaking with those who are in the Indies, speaking to those who are not yet born, nor shall be this thousand or ten thousand years? And with no greater difficulty than the various arrangements of two dozen little signs on paper? Let this be the seal of all the admirable inventions of men.3"

 

WHAT ONE WOULD LOOK FOR THEREFORE WOULD BE A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE THE KIND OF LANGUAGE COMPREHENSIBLE TO ANY TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED SOCIETY IN ANY EPOCH

SUCH LANGUAGES ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN BUT MATHEMATICS IS ONE OF THEM

THE
BLESSED
9
 
CONSIDER
 
The reference to self as expressed in the letter I is a constant reiteration of the holy symbol indicating the 9th position occupied by this letter within The English Alphabet.
 
The English language transmuted into number is one of the main conduits through which appear, a clearer understanding of those refracted patterns, apparently random, describing the energies which intermingled within the great here and now are considered  the living experience of reality.
 
I = 9
 
Me = 18  and 1 + 8 = 9
 
Ego = 27 and 18 finally 1 + 8 = 9
 
Conscience = 90 and 45 finally 4 + 5 = 9
 
Self = 42 = 15 = 6
Soul = 67 = 13 = 4
 
 
 
 
ISIS as number is 9-19-9-19 which reduces via 9-1-9-1 to 20 and finally 2 + 0 = 2
 
OSIRIS as number is 15-19-9-18-9-19 which reduces via 6-1-9-9-9-1 to 89 and finally 8 + 9 =17
Finally 1+7 the root number for OSIRIS Lord of the underworld is revealed as number 8
 
EYES = 9 9 = EYES
 
ISIS = 9 - 19 - 9 - 19 becomes 9 - 1 - 9 - 1 = ISIS
IRIS = 9 - 18 - 9 - 19 becomes 9 - 9 - 9 - 1 = IRIS
 
SIRIUS 19 - 9 - 18 - 9 - 21 - 19 becomes 1 - 9 - 9 - 9 -  3 - 1 - SIRIUS
SIRIUS = 5 5 = SIRIUS
SOTHIS = 9 9 = SOTHIS
ORIONIS = 9 9 = ORIONIS
 
I AM THAT I THAT AM I
9 AM THAT 9 THAT 9 AM 9
 
 
 
 
CONSIDER
 
HAFNIUM has the atomic number 72.
 
If this word is transcribed into number via the position each letter occupies within the context of the English Alphabet.
 
A=1 to Z =26
 
Then the word HAFNIUM (Atomic number 72) transposes initially to 72, (coincidence?)  
H =8
A = 1
F =  6
N =14 (1+ 4 = 5)
I = 9
U =21 (2+1=3)
M =13 (1+3=4)
 
First Total 72
 
Second Total
8+1+6+5+9+3+4 = 36
 
Finally 3 + 6 are added together, unlocking the numerical root essence of the word HAFNIUM
 
HAFNIUM = 9
 
If the same criteria is applied to the Greek word IOTA the ninth letter of the Greek alphabet.
The final distillation of the transposed letters arrived at is number 9.
  
ADD TO REDUCE REDUCE TO DEDUCE
 
CONSIDER
the word
JUPITER - the 9th and largest of the planets relative to size, this word reduces as follows.
 
J =10 and 1+ 0 is 1
 
U = 21and 2 + 1 is 3 
 
P =16 and 1 + 6 is 7
 
I = 9 and 9 ISISIS 9 
 
T= 20 and 2 + 0 is 2
 
E = 5
 
R = 18 and 1 + 8 is 9
 
Thus
Jupiter = 99
Jupiter = 36
Jupiter = 9

The root number of the 3 lettered word SUN is also 9
 
The root number of the 4 lettered word MOON is 57 reducing initially to 21 and then to 3
 
The root number of the 5 lettered word EARTH is 52 reducing via 25 to 7
 
 
 
ADD TO REDUCE REDUCE TO DEDUCE
This is the key to revealing the magnetically drawn numerical language links contained within a hidden reality
 
 
 
REALITY = 90 and 36 finally 3 + 6 = 9
 
OUR = 54 and 18 finally 9
 
LOVE  = 54 and 18 finally 1+ 8 = 9
 
Platos number
 
FIFTYFOUR = 126 and 54 finally 5 + 4 = 9
 
 
 
 
 OUR LOVE
ISISIS

The number of DIVINE is 63 (first change) then 36 (second change) and finally 3  + 6 is 9
The number of THOUGHT is 99  (first change) then 36 (second change) and finally 3  + 6 is 9
 
 
DIVINELOVE
ISISIS

Think of the binary system, the numerical sequencing used in computer communications. Note the curious juxtaposition of certain transposed words like
 
 
 
LIVEEVIL, LIVEDDEVIL, or EARTH, HEART, THERA,
and Abrahams fathers name TERAH.

Another way of looking at language and number is the arithmetical arrangements and formulae secretly resident within inverted capital letters. For example
 
HINOSXZ
 
the upside down of the downside up
 
ZXSONIH
 
H = 8
I = 9
N = 14 and 1+ 4 = 5
O = 15 and 1+ 5 = 6
S = 19 and 1+ 9 = 10 then 1+0 = 1
X = 24 and 2 + 4 = 6
Z = 26 and 2 + 6 = 8
 
First total 8 + 9 +14 + 15 + 19 + 24 + 26 = 115 and 1 + 1 + 5 = a root value of 7
 
Second Total 8 + 9 + 5 + 6 + 1 + 6 + 8 = 43 finally 4 + 3 = 7
 
THE MAGIC
7
 
 
SPHINXZION
 
1 and 8 and 8 and 1
 
the downside up of the upside down
 
It can be seen that these letters and numbers inverted remain visually the same. Examples affecting the whole word are,
 
ONION, SIN, ZION, NIXON.
 
Words like God, Phoenix and Sphinx, or Magician Magic and Magi also contain the revolving symbols, and hereuponin distinct patterns begin to appear.
 
CONSIDER
There are  9 planets
There are seven openings in the human head and two in the body 9 in all.
 
(Ignoring design appendages)
There are seven capital  letters and two numbers which remain the same when inverted. 9 in total
 
 
Creative patterns can be observed which tell a different  story about the nature of realities intelligent living formations other than those which are generally available unto our obscured inner vision.

FIFTYFOUR. Guess what sequence of numbers, the blessed PLATO'S FIFTYFOUR reduces to on its journey to reveal the wholly holy number 9.
 
The word PHYSICS = 99 then 9+9 =18 and 1 + 8 = 9
 
 
The names of the holy family when expressed in the order
 
JOSEPH - root numerical value 1. . .6 letters in the word JOSEPH . . . 1 + 6 = 7
 
JESUS - root numerical value 2 . . . 5 letters in the word JESUS . . . 2 + 5 = 7

Chapter Three

Page 63 6+3 = 9

"There is a simple trick involving numbers that can be guaran-teed to produce astonishment at any party. You ask someone to write down his telephone number, then to write it a second time with the figures jumbled up. Next, tell him to subtract the smaller from the larger number, and keep on adding up the figures in the answer until he has reduced it to one figure. (5019 becomes 10, which in turn becomes 1 plus 0 - that is, 1.) When he has finished, you may tell him authoritatively: 'The answer is nine.'

You can afford to be dogmatic; for the answer is always nine. It works with any set of figures, no matter how small or how large. Jumble up the figures, subtract one from the other, and the answer always reduces to 9.

I have no idea why this is so, and have never come across a mathematician who could explain it. It is just one of those peculiar properties of numbers."

" ' This is a slightly unusual request,' said Dr Wagner, with what he hoped was commendable restraint. 'As far as I know, it's the first time anyone's been asked to supply a Tibetan monastery with an Automatic Sequence Computer. I don't wish to be inquisitive, but I should hardly have thought that your - ah - establishment had much use for such a ma-chine. Could you explain just what you intend to do with it?'

'Gladly,' replied the lama, readjusting his silk robes and carefully putting away the slide rule he had been Using for currency conversions. 'Your Mark V Computer can carry out any routine mathtiilatical operation involving up to ten digits. However, for our work we are interested in letters, not numbers. As we wish you to modify the output circuits, the machine will be printing words, not columns of figures.'

'I don't quite understand. . .'

'This is a project on which we have been working for the last three centuries - since the lamasery was founded, in fact. It is somewhat alien to your way of thought, so I hope you will listen with an open mind while I explain it.'

'Naturally.'

'It is really quite simple. We have been compiling a list which shall contain all the possible names of God.'

'I beg your pardon?'

Page 16

The Nine Billion Names of God

'We have reason to believe,.' continued the lama imper-turbably, 'that all such names can be written with not more than nine letters in an alphabet we have devised.'

'And you have been doing this for three centuries?'

'Yes: we expected it would take us about fifteen thousand years to complete the task.'

'Oh,' Dr Wagner looked a little dazed. 'Now I see why you wanted to hire one of our machines. But what exactly is the purpose of this project?'

The lama hesitated for a fraction of a second, and Wagner wondered if he had offended him. If so, there was no trace of annoyance in the reply.

'Call it ritual, if you like, but it's a fundamental part of our belief. All the many names of the Supreme Being - God, Jehova, Allah, and so on - they are only man-made labels. There is a philosophical problem of some difficulty here, which I do not propose to discuss, but somewhere among all the possible combinations of letters that can occur are what one may call the real names of God. By systematic per-mutation of letters, we have been trying to list them all.'

"I see. You've been starting at A A A A A A A . . . and work- ing up to Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z . . .'

'Exactly - though we use a special alphabet of our own. Modifying the electromatic typewriters to deal with this is, of course, trivial. A rather more interesting problem is that of devising suitable circuits to eliminate ridiculous com- binations. For example, no letter must occur more than times in succession.'

' Three? Surely you mean two.'

'Three is correct: I am afraid it would take too long to explain why, even if you understood our language.'

Page 17

The Nine Billion Names of God

'I'm sure it would,' said Wagner hastily. 'Go on.'

'Luckily, it will be a simple matter to adapt your Automatic Sequence Computer for this work, since once it has been programmed properly it will permute each letter in turn and print the result. What would have taken us fifteen thousand years it 'will be able to do in a hundred days.'

Dr Wagner was scarcely conscious of the faint sounds from the Manhattan streets far below. He was in a different world, a world of natural, not man-made, mountains. High up in their remote aeries these monks had been patiently at work, generation after generation, compiling their lists of meaningless words. Was there any limit to the follies of man- kind? Still, he must give no hint of his inner thoughts. The customer was always right. . .

'There's no doubt.replied the doctor, 'that we can modify the Mark V to print lists of this nature."

Page20 ' Well they believe that when they have listed all his names - and they reckon that there are about nine billion of them - Gods purpose will be achieved. "

MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION

"Multiplication does not always increase a number. If the multiplier is less than 1 we have a decrease. When we. multiply by .5 we get a half of the original number; when we multiply by 1 we reduce the number to a tenth of itself; and so on. The square of a small number (less than 1) is a very small number; the cube is an extremely small number.Thus: .0012= .00001, .0013 = .000000001.

Even when a number is a very little less than one, con-tinual multiplication of it by itself (raising it to higher and higher powers) finally reduces it to an exceedingly small quantity.

.99999 is a mere one-hundred-thousandth less than 1; if we multiply any number by it we deduct a one-hundred-thousandth of the number. Thus .999992 is a very little more than .99998. .9999910 is a little more than .99990.

.99999 to the power 1000 is about .99015.

.99999 to the power 1,000,000 is .00005.

.99999 to the power 10,000,000 is the tenth power of .00005.

We should have a string of 42 noughts before the significant figures begin. For the l00,000,000th power we / Page 148 / should have over 400 noughts before the significant figures begin."

"An American mathematician noticed that the earlier pages in books of logariths kept in his university library were dirtier than later ones, indicating that science students, for some rea-son, had more occasion to calculate with numbers beginning with 1 than with any other number. (261) He made a collection of tables and calculated the relative frequency of each digit from 1 to 9. Theoretically they should occur equally of-ten, but he found 30per cent of the numbers were 1, whereas 9 only occupied 5 per cent of the space. These are almost exactly the proportions given to these numbers on the scale of a slide rule, so the designers of that instrument clearly recognized that such a bias existed. This preponderance of the number 1 may have been caused by the fact that the tables were not really random, but bigger tables provide a similar bias."

"The precessional numbers highlighted by Sellers in the Osiris myth are 360, 72, 30 and 12."

"These he joined to the 360 days of which the year then consisted (emphasis added)."

"Elsewhere the myth informs us that the 360 - day year consists of "12 months of 30 days each".

Note 6

And in general,as Sellers observes , "phrases are used which prompt simple mental calculations and an attention to numbers ". note 7 "Elsewhere the myth informs us that the 360-day year consists of '12 months of 30 days each'.

Thus far we have been provided with three of Seller's precessional: 360, 12 and 30. The fourth number,which occurs later in the text, is by far the most important. As we saw in Chapter Nine, the evil deity known as Set led a group of conspirators in a plot to kill Osiris. The number of these conspirators was 72."

The New Year of God

Cornhill Magazine 1934

Page 231/233

"Three o'clock and a still starlight night in mid-September in Upper Egypt. At this hour the village is usually asleep, but to-night it is a stir for this is Nauruz Allah, the New Year of God, and the narrow streets are full of the soft sound of bare feet moving towards the Nile. The village lies on a strip of ground; one one side is the river, now swollen to its height, on the other are the floods of the inundation spread in a vast sheet of water to the edge of the desert. On a windy night the lapping of wavelets is audible on every hand; but to-night the air is calm and still, there is no sound but the muffled tread of unshod feet in the dust and the murmur of voices subdued in the silence of the night.

In ancient times throughout the whole of Egypt the night of High Nile was a night of prayer and thanks giving to the great god , the Ruler of the river, Osiris himself. Now it is only in this Coptic village that the ancient rite is preserved, and here the festival is still one of prayer and thanksgiving. In the great cities the New Year is a time of feasting and processions, as blatant and uninteresting as a Lord Mayor's Show, with that additional note of piercing vulgarity peculiar to the East.

In this village, far from all great cities, and-as a Coptic community-isolated from and therefore uninfluenced either by its Moslem neighbours or by foreigners, the festival is one of simplicity and piety. The people pray as of old to the Ruler of the river, no longer Osiris, but Christ; and as of old they pray for a blessing upon their children and their homes.

There are four appointed places on the river bank to which the village women go daily to fill their water-jars and to water their animals. To these four places the villagers are now making their way, there to keep the New Year of God.

The river gleams coldly pale and grey; Sirius blazing in the eastern sky casts a narrow path of light across the mile-wide waters. A faint glow low on the horizon shows where the moon will rise, a dying moon on the last day of the last quarter.

The glow gradually spreads and brightens till the thin crescent, like a fine silver wire, rises above the distant palms. Even in that attenuated form the moonlight eclipses the stars and the glory of Sirius is dimmed. The water turns to the colour of tarnished silver, smooth and glassy; the palm-trees close at hand stand black against the sky, and the distant shore is faintly visible. The river runs silently and without a ripple in the windless calm; the palm fronds, so sensitive to the least movement of the air, hang motionless and still; all Nature seems to rest upon this holy night.

The women enter the river and stand knee-deep in the running stream praying; they drink nine times, wash the face and hands, and dip themselves in the water. Here is a mother carrying a tiny wailing baby; she enters the river and gently pours the water nine times over the little head. The wailing ceases as the water cools the little hot face. Two anxious women hasten down the steep bank, a young boy between them; they hurriedly enter the water and the boy squats down in the river up to his neck, while the mother pours the water nine times with her hands over his face and shaven head. There is the sound of a little gasp at the first shock of coolness, and the mother laughs, a little tender laugh, and the grandmother says something under her breath, at which they all laugh softly together. After the ninth washing the boy stands up, then squats down again and is again washed nine times, and yet a third nine times; then the grandmother takes her turn and she also washes him nine times. Evidently he is very precious to the hearts of those two women, perhaps the mother's last surviving child. Another sturdy urchin refuses to sit down in the water, frightened perhaps, for a woman's voice speaks encouragingly, and presently a faint splashing and a little gurgle of childish laughter shows that he too is receiving the blessing of the Nauruz of God.

A woman stands alone, her slim young figure in its wet clinging garments silhouetted against the steel-grey water. Solitary she stands, apart from the happy groups of parents and children; then, stooping , she drinks from her once, pauses and drinks again; and so drinks nine times with a short pause between every drink and a longer pause between every three. Except for the movement of her hand as she lifts the water to her lips, she stands absolutely still, her body tense with the earnestness of her prayer, the very atmosphere round her charged with the agony of her supplication. Throughout the whole world there is only one thing which causes a woman to pray with such intensity, and that one thing is children. " This may be a childless woman praying for a child, or it may be that, in this land where Nature is as careless and wasteful of infant life as of all else, this a mother praying for the last of her little brood, feeling assured that on this festival of mothers and children her prayers must perforce be heard. At last she straightens herself, beats the water nine times with the corner of her garment, goes softly up the bank, and disappears in the darkness.

Little family parties come down to the river, a small child usually riding proudly on her father's shoulder. The men often affect to despise the festival as a woman's affair, but with memories in their hearts of their own mothers and their own childhood they sit quietly by the river and drink nine times. A few of the rougher young men fling themselves into the water and swim boisterously past, but public feeling is against them, for the atmosphere is one of peace and prayer enhanced by the calm and silence of the night.

Page 232 and 233 Continued.

For thousands of years on the night of High Nile the mothers of Egypt have stood in the great river to implore from the God of the Nile a blessing upon their children; formerly from a God who Himself has memories of childhood and a Mother. Now, as then, the stream bears on its broad surface the echo of countless prayers, the hopes and fears of human hearts; and in my memory remains a vision of the darkly flowing river, the soft murmur of prayer, the peace and calm of the New Year of God.

COMPARISONS

"IF anyone thinks he has no use for arithmetic let him consider the number of comparisons he makes every day. Most comparisons involve the working of some sort of sum; even when we compare colours we are apt to make some kind of computation of the proportions of the primary colours in them. We are always making comparisons, well or ill, accurately or inaccurately; one of the virtues of arithmetic is that it enables one to make comparisons neatly and accurately. One is proud of having a sense of proportion,and proportion is essentially mathematical-it is a comparison of sizes measured in some way or other. Even where arithmetic does not enter directly and obviously into a comparison a knowledge of the possibilities of arithmetical comparison is not amiss; it does at least rule out many crudities and absurdities.

I saw some time ago the statement that if all the herrings landed at Yarmouth in a season were placed head to tail in a line they would stretch nine times round the world. The writer had evidently been impressed by the vast number of herrings in the catch, and he had looked for a comparison that would show the immensity of the number of herrings. As we have already seen, if we want to make the most of a large number of objects, we place them in a line. We get the greatest possible length by placing the herrings head to tail, and that is what the writer had done.

The idea of placing the herrings in a nine-deep queue / Page 62 / right round the world might be impressive if we once began to realize what such a queue means."

 

THE NEW VIEW OVER ATLANTIS

"That this small gold pyramid ion was an integral part of the Pyramid's design is evident from the figures. Without it the dimensions are not quite complete, for if it were removed, the area of the Pyramid's side would be 99999'99 square cubits only. With the 5 cubic inches of gold pyramidion in place, the figure of 100,000 square cubits represents the total area.
   As the dimensions of the Great Pyramid are multiplied by the ratios of the ancient number canon they expand to frame the dimensions of this earth, and it is possible that they could have been taken further to represent the dimensions of the grand orb (the circle described by the
earth's path round the sun), planetary-intervals and the measurements.
of time. Going the other way, into the microcosm, these same Pyramid measures contract proportionally through a series of pyramidions at the apex, shrinking from miles to inches, to mere specks and finally into the world of the atom. The symbolism is of a seed, planted at the apex of the Pyramid, programmed with all the numbers and ratios for its potential growth. It is like that, smallest of all seeds, spoken of in the New Testament, the 'grain of mustard', which grows up into the Tree of Life encompassing the whole universe.
   The numerical patterns in the Pyramid's dimensions imply that the capstone consisted of a succession of diminishing pyramidions, each forming the tip of the one below it, with the small gold pyramid, 5 cubic inches in volume, at the apex. Yet if the gold model is to represent the whole structure in miniature, it must itself have a separate tip. This tiny object, set in gold, could only have been some form of crystal. Esoteric traditions about the use of crystals in the ancient world for attracting and transmitting cosmic energies are echoed by modern seers, such as the well-known 'Sleeping Prophet' of America, Edgar Cayce, who described visions of the Atlantean crystal technology which empowered the last world civilization and finally, by its abuse, brought about the cataclysm.
  An illustration of how the small, golden, crystal-topped pyramidion could have been held in place, together with the other layers making up the capstone, is given by a strange hieroglyph which shows a truncated pyramid topped by a staff or gnomon"

EYE OF VIGILANCE

"On the 3rd October 1998, a press conference was organised in Cairo for Minister of Culture Farouk Hosni and the French composer Jean Michel Jarre. The latter has been an international household name since the 1970s due to the enormous success of his electronic high-tech music compositions 'Oxygene' and 'Equinox'. Jean Michel Jarre is also an ambassador for UNESCO and has, since the 1980s, been organising extravaganzas of laser lights and music for historical events. One of these was for the bicentennial of the French Revolution in 1989, where more than two million spectators gathered in the Champs-Elysees in Paris, from the Place de la Concorde all the way to the new 'Paris 2000' Place de la Defense. This show, which was televised around the world, featured a pyramid structure erected in front of the Grande Arche de la Fraternite, literally the' Arch of the Brotherhood'. From the high-tech pyramid, laser images were projected on to the high-rise buildings nearby, including at one stage the so-called 'eye of vigilance', a symbol commonly used by Freemasons.14 During the press conference the Egyptian Minister of Culture stated that an opera composed by Jarre, entitled 'The Twelve Dreams of the Sun', would be performed to coincide with the unveiling of the golden capstone for the Great Pyramid at the end of the millennium, and Jarre himself declared that 'since the pyramids are linked to the sun' he had decided to stage a 'modern, multimedia opera that will last twelve bows and accompany the sun from the second millennium to the third millennium in the tradition of Ra, the pharaonic sun god'.
Farouk Hosni then explained that this event was also connected to / Page xxiv / another similar event that had recently taken place in Paris in May 1998, when a gilded capstone was placed on the Egyptian obelisk of the Place de la Concorde.15 There is a strange history attached to this obelisk. It had originally stood as one of a pair outside the Temple of Luxor in Upper Egypt. In 1827 it was commissioned by Charles X to be brought to France, but it arrived in Paris in 1836 and was erected at thePlace de la Concorde by Louis-Philippe. Interestingly, both these monarchs were prominent members of the Grand Orient, the body that regulates Freemasonry in France.16 Other Egyptian obelisks were also erected in New York's Central Park and London's Victoria Embankment in the 1870s. These events, too, were under the auspices of the Masonic Lodges. 17 All stand as symbols of Freemasonry's alleged roots in ancient Egypt. The main symbol, in fact, is not the whole obelisk; in Masonic lore the golden pyramidion or capstone that crowns its top is a symbol with many layers of meaning. At one level it represents the so-called Supreme Being under whom all religious systems can unite.

" I Think we have a common bond  you and it is the number 9, the 9th letter of the English Alphabet.
I wonder if you have seen the book by Cecil Balmond Number 9 The search for the Sigma Code, if not I think you should read it. I found it most interesting.
While typing,  I am seeking to create, in this short e-mail a pattern, that I, you, and others could identify all supposing we chose to look for one,  I have done this by indicating a common feature. The letter I, and the number 9 doing so as can be seen, by emphasis."

This is my message to you.  9 x 9 = 81 and 8 + 1 = 9
and the symbol 9 occurs four times, so I am saying to you 36 and 3 + 6 = 9

"A long time ago," said Kaminski, "I came across a remark that I've never forgotten-though I can't remember who made it.
'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.'
That's what we're up against here. Our lasers and mesotrons and nuclear reactors and neutrino telescopes would have seemed pure magic to the best scientists of the nineteenth century. But they could have understood how they worked-more or less-if we were around to explain the theory to them."

"The astronomer Carl Sagan once noted that if there was other intelligent life in the universe some of it would have certainly evolved far earlier than we did, and had thousands, or hundreds of thousands, or millions, or hundreds of millions of years to develop the advanced technology that we are only now beginning to develop.

'After billions of years of biological evolution - on their planet and ours - an alien civilization cannot be in technological lockstep with us,' wrote Sagan.

'There 'have been humans for more than twenty thousand centuries, but we've had radio only for about one century,' wrote Sagan. 'If alien civilizations are behind us, they're likely to be too far behind us to have radio. And if they're ahead of us, they're likely to be far ahead of us. Think of the technical advances on our world over just the last few centuries. What is for us technologically difficult or impossible, what might seem to us like magic, might for them be trivially easy.'

The author of 2001, Arthur C. Clarke - who envisioned a mysterious black monolith that reappears at successive stages of human evolution, each time we are ready to be taken to a higher level - made a similar observation:

'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.'

Page 163

pages 69-75 Chapter notes,
"The astronomer Carl Sagan suggested that an advanced alien technology 'might seem to us like magic' in Pale Blue Dot (Random House, 1994), p. 352.

The author of 2001, Arthur C. Clarke, made a similar observation: 'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic' (Profiles of the Future, Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1984).

Paul Davies' imagined 'alien artifact' is described in his book Are We Alone? (Basic Books, 1995), p. 42. Stanley Kubrick, in his famous movie version of Clarke's 2001, showed a mysterious black monolith that seemed to reappear at successive stages of human evolution, each time we were ready to be taken to a higher level. When I told him about the Bible code, Kubrick's immediate reaction was, 'It's like the monolith in 2001.' "

"The most profound message from the aliens may never be spoken: We are not alone or unique. Contact would tell us that life and intelligence have evolved elsewhere in the Universe, and that they may be common by-products of cosmic evolution. Contact would tend to confirm the theory that life evolves chemically from inanimate mat- ter, through universal processes,implying that there are other alien civilizations in addition to the one we had detected. We might see ourselves as just one example of biocosmic processes, one facet of the Universe becoming aware of itself. We would undergo a revolution in the way that we conceive our own position in the Universe; any remaining pretense of centrality or a special role, any belief that we are a chosen species would be dashed for- ever, completing the process begun by Copernicus four centuries ago.

The revelation that we are not the most technologi-cally advanced intelligent species could lead to a humbling deflation of our sense of self-importance. We might reclassify ourselves to a lower level of ability and worth. This leveling of our pretensions, this anti-hubris, could be intensified if we were confronted with alien technology beyond our understanding.

(Arthur C. Clarke has observed that any sufficiently advanced tech-nology would be indistinguishable from magic.)

"But we are speaking of two different things. My Majesty speaks of the fetters which the teaching puts upon the thoughts of God; yours refers to priestly statecraft, which divides teaching and knowledge. But Pharaoh would not be arrogant, and there is no greater arrogance than such a division. No, there is no arrogance in the world greater than that of dividing the children of our Father into initiate and uninitiate and teaching double words: all-knowingly for the masses, knowingly in the inner circle. No, we must speak what we know, and witness what we have seen. Pharaoh wants to do nothing but improve the teaching, even though it be made hard for him by the teaching."

 "In all there were two-and-seventy conspirators privy to the plot. It was a proper and a pregnant number, for there had been just sev-enty-two when red Set lured Usir into the chest. And these seventy-two in their turn had had good cosmic ground to be no more and no less than that number. For it is just that number of groups of five weeks which make up the three hundred and sixty days of the year, not counting the odd days; and there are just seventy-two days in the dry fifth of the year, when the gauge shows that the Nourisher has reached his lowest ebb, and the god sinks into his grave. So where there is conspiracy anywhere in the world it is requisite and custom-ary for the number of conspirators to be seventy-two. And if the plot fail, the failure shows that if this number had not been adhered to it would have failed even worse."

That common language is science and mathematics.

" In addition, though the monuments are enabled to 'speak' from the moment that their astronomical context is understood, we have also to consider the amazing profusion of funerary texts that have come down to us from all periods of Egyptian history - all apparently emanating from the same very few common sources5 As we have seen, these texts operate like 'software' to the monuments' 'hardware', charting the route that the Horus-King (and all other future seekers) must follow.

We recall a remark made by Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend in Hamlet's Mill to the effect that the great strength of myths as vehicles for specific technical information is that they are capable of transmitting that information independently of the knowledge of individual story-tellers.6 In other words as long as a myth continues to be told true, it will also continue to transmit any higher message that may be concealed within its structure - even if neither the teller nor the hearer understands that message."

"A proton is 1,836 times heavier than an electron, and the number 1,836 would have the same connotations to any 'intelligence' "
Page 24 / 25

"A manifestly artificial signal- even if it were as boring as lists of prime numbers, or the digits of 'pi' - would imply that 'intelli- gence' wasn't unique to the Earth and had evolved elsewhere. The nearest potential sites are so far away that signals would take many years in transit. For this reason alone, transmission would be primarily one-way. There would be time to send a measured response, but no scope for quick repartee!
Any remote beings who could communicate with us would have some concepts of mathematics and logic that paralleled our own. And they would also share a knowledge of the basic particles and forces that govern our universe. Their habitat may be very different (and the biosphere even more different) from ours here on Earth; but they, and their planet, would be made of atoms just like those on Earth. For them, as for us, the most important particles would be protons and electrons: one electron orbiting a proton makes a hydrogen atom, and electric currents and radio transmitters involve streams of electrons. A proton is 1,836 times heavier than an electron, and the number 1,836 would have the same connotations to any 'intelligence' able and motivated to transmit radio signals. All the basic forces and natural laws would be the same. Indeed, this uniformity - without which our universe would be a far more baffling place - seems to extend to the remotest galaxies that astronomers can study. (Later chapters in this book will, however, speculate about other 'universes', forever beyond range of our telescopes, where different laws may prevail.)
Clearly, alien beings wouldn't use metres, kilograms or seconds. But we could exchange information about the ratios of two masses (such as thc ratio of proton and electron masses) or of two lengths, which are 'pure numbers' that don't depend on what units are used: the statement that one rod is ten times as long as another is true (or false) whether we measure lengths / in feet or metres or some alien units"

This is why the pyramid skirts of the two statues, guarding the entrance to the Burial Chamber, were triangular (base 3), when the all-seeing eye-skirt of Mereruka contained a pyramid skirt with a base of four sides.

SECRETS OF THE CODE

SECRET SOCIETIES

Page 178

" Granted, Guillaume [de Tyre] does provide us with certain basic information, and it is this information on which all subsequent accounts of the Templars, all explanation of their foundation, all narratives of their activities have been based. But because of Guillaume's vagueness and sketchiness, because of the time at which he was writing [1175-85], because of the dearth of documented sources, he constitutes a precarious basis on which to build a definitive picture. Guillaume's chronicles are certainly useful. But it is a mistake-and one to which many historians have succumbed-to regard them as unimpugnable and wholly accurate. Even Guillaume's dates, as Sir Steven Runciman stresses, "are confused and at times demonstrably wrong."1

According to Guillaume de Tyre the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon was founded in 1118. Its founder is said to be one Hugues de Payen, a nobleman from Champagne and vassal of the count of Champagne. One day Hugues, unsolicited, presented himself with eight comrades at the palace of Baudouin 1, king of Jerusalem, whose elder brother, Godfroi de Bouillon, had captured the Holy City nineteen years earlier. Baudouin seems to have received them most cordially, as did the patriarch of Jerusalem-the religious leader of the new kingdom and special emissary of the Pope.
The declared objective of the Templars, Guillaume de Tyre continues, was, "as far as their strength permitted, they should keep the roads and highways safe. . . with especial regard for the protection of pilgrims."2 So worthy was this objective apparently that the king vacated an entire wing of the royal palace and placed it at the knights' disposal. And despite their declared oath of poverty the knights moved mto this lavish accommodation. According to tradition their quarters were built on the foundations of the ancient temple of Solomon, and from this the fledgling order derived its name.
For nine years, Guillaume de Tyre tells us, the nine knights admitted no new candidates to their order. They were still supposed to be living in poverty-such poverty that official seals show two knights riding a single horse, implying not / Page 179 / only brotherhood, but also a penury that precluded separate mounts. This style of seal is often regarded as the most famous and distinctive of Templar devices, descending from the first days of the order. However, it actually dates from a full century later, when the Templars were hardly poor-if; indeed, they ever were.
According to Guillaume de Tyre, writing a half century later, the Templars were established in 1118 and moved into the king's palace-presumably sallying out from there to protect pilgrims on the Holy Land's highways and byways. And yet there was at the time an official royal historian employed by the king. His name was Fulk de Chartres, and he was writing not fifty years after the order's purported foundation, but during the very years in question. Curiously enough, Fulk de Chartres makes no mention whatever of Hugues de Payen, Hugues' companions, or anything even remotely connected with the Knights Templar. Indeed, there is a thunderous silence about Templar activities during the early days of their existence. Certainly there is no record anywhere-not even later-of their doing anything to protect pilgrims. And one cannot but wonder how so few men could hope to fulfill so mammoth a self-imposed task. Nine men to protect the pilgrims on all the thoroughfares of the Holy Land? Only nine? And all pilgrims? If this was their objective, one would surely expect them to welcome new recruits. Yet according to Guillaume de Tyre, they admitted no new candidates to the order for nine years.
Nonetheless, within a decade the Templars' fame seems to have spread back to Europe. Ecclesiastical authorities spoke highly of them and extolled their Christian undertaking. By 1128 or shortly thereafter, a tract lauding their virtues and qualities was issued by no less a person than Saint Bernard, abbot of Clairvaux and the age's chief spokesman for Christendom. Bernard's tract, "In Praise of the New Knighthood," declares the Templars to be the epitome and apotheosis of Christian values.
After nine years, in 1127, most of the nine knights returned to Europe and a triumphal welcome, orchestrated in large part by Saint Bernard. In January 1128 a Church council was convened at Troyes-court of the count of Champagne, Hugues de Payen's liege Lord-at which Bernard was again the guiding spirit. At this council the Templars were officially recognized and incorporated as a religious-military order. Hugues de Payen was given the title of grand master. He and his subordinates were to be warrior-monks, soldier-mystics, combining the austere discipline of the cloister with a martial zeal tantamount to fanaticism-a "militia of Christ" as they were called at the time. And it was again Saint Bernard
who helped to draw up, with an enthusiastic preface, the rule of conduct to which the knights would adhere-a rule based on that of the Cistercian monastic order, in which Bernard himself was a dominant influence.
The Templars were sworn to poverty, chastity, and obedience. They were obliged to cut their hair but forbidden to cut their beards, thus distinguishing themselves in an age when most men were cleanshaven. Diet, dress, and other as­peers of daily life were stringently regulated in accordance with both monastic and / Page 180 / Military routines.

A Chinese daughter reflects on happiness spiritual beliefs and universal wisdom

Page 156

..." Turn your paper around and look at the word che from a different angle. Does it not look like a cart with a wheel on each side and an axle running down the middle?
'In future, when you look at any Chinese word, keep in mind the phrase Zi xing cang li (Chinese symbols omitted) (Hidden logic within the shape of words). Li means logic, reason, truth and principle. Dissect each word and search for the li represented by the characters.
'For example, how we Chinese regard the ant might be seen by looking at the word for "ant" (omitted) (yi). On the left is (omitted) which means "insect". On the right is (omitted) which means "justice, loyalty, relationship and unselfishness".'
Of all the animals, only we humans are endowed with the ability to communicate through language. Described by philosophers as a 'mirror of man's mind', language reflects the essence of our perceptions and concepts. We use it to clarify our thoughts, feelings or ideas and express them to others.
Ideas define how we perceive reality. At first glance, having ideas may seem to be a natural function separate from the domain of language. Indeed, in some instances, it is. Although it is mainly through words that we express our ideas, it is by no means the only way.
Emotional and spiritual concepts are probably best conveyed by music, art, meditation or physical disciplines such as dance, qi gong, tai chi or yoga. A skilful artist is able to erase the boundary between observation, feeling and expression, thereby creating a conduit directly to the mind of the beholder.

Page 156

Ideas in mathematics, however, are better interpreted by a special numerical 'alphabet' that is able to represent an infinite variety of concepts with a small and simple assemblage of symbols. Galileo wrote,

Philosophy is written in that great book which ever lies before our eyes - I mean the universe. But we cannot understand it [the universe 1 if we do not first learn the languagc and grasp the symbols in which it is written. This book [of the universe] is written in the mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it, without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth

The way in which we think - and the degree of sophistication of the culture we create - is highly dependent on our vocabulary. The importance of mathematics in the development of science was recognised by the Chincse only relatively recently, and the Hindu-Arabic number system was not adopted or taught at schools in China until the twentieth century. Yet according to Lconardo da Vinci, 'a science is perfect to the degree that it is mathcmatical'. In the 1880s, when my grandfather was a boy, numbers were still being written in Chinese characters with a brush. Besides being cumbersome and time-consuming, the traditional Chinese method of recording numbers lacked two vital components: positional value and the symbol zero.

When my son Roger was seven years old, I gave him a record called Multiplication Rock, which he loved. Morning, noon and night he would play it over and ovcr, driving our whole / Page 157 / family crazy with the same tunes, same beat, same words. One of the songs was named 'My Hero Zero'. It went something like this:

My hero Zero,
When you stand to the right of the number one
The number becomes ten
;
When you stand to the right of the number ten
The number beeomes one hundred
;
When you stand to the right of the number one hundred The number becomes one thousand.

Roger loved the song so much that, for his eighth birthday, I wrote him a short story featuring his hero Zero (dressed in a bright red military uniform) coming to the rescue of all the other nine numbers which had moeked and belittled him for being of no value.
In a way, this story symbolises the reason why China fell behind the west in mathematics and science. The symbol zero,
invented in India in the ninth century and adopted as part of the Hindu-Arabic number system, is indeed very much a hero. However, zero's value was never truly recognized by my Chinese ancestors before the twentieth century.
For one thing, zero is different from any other number. Like the mysterious, ineffable tao in Lao Zi's Tao Te Ching, zero

. . . resembles an empty bowl

Which, while being used, can never be filled.

Bottomless, it seems to be the source of everything.

Blunting all sharpness, / Page 58 /

Unravelling all complications,

Harmonising all glare,

Uniting the world into common dust.

Hidden and invisible,

Yet it appears to exist.

I know not whose offspring it is;

It looks like the ancestor of all.

Before its invention, zero played a hidden role as a blank space on the abacus. Its incarnation as a symbol (and its establishment as a place-holder) is what gave zero its unique power aud status. I have been fascinated by zero ever sincc I studied it as a schoolgirl in Hong Kong. Trying to discover the logic hidden within its shape (zi xing cang li), [ became bewitched and enchanted. I was taught that adding a number to zero or subtracting zero from a number changcd nothing. In such cases, zero counted for naught. however, any number multiplied by zero became zero itself, whereas any number divided by zero became infinity. I remember being thrilled by zero's paradoxical powers, seemingly so insignificant. To me at the age of twelve, zero and infinity, like yin and yang, or nothing and eternity, appeared to represent the two opposite ends of the universe. Between them, they held all the secrets of a magical world.
My feelings towards zero have not changed over the years. Like the tao, zero will always remain enigmatic and beautiful.
Indian astronomical tables were first translated into Arabic in Baghdad and later into Latin. The great scholar and intellectual Pope Silvester II (who was pontiff for only four years. from AD 999 to 1003 was one of tbe earliest proponents of these numbers. but it was Leonardo Fibonacci of Pisa (1170-1230) who, in his book Liber Abace. first pointed out zero's / Page 160 / unique significance. He also noted that the ten Hindu-Arabic numbers (987654321 and zero) possess the ability to express an infinite variety of numbers.
Four centuries later. Leibniz. while reading the I Ching. recognised that instead of using ten numbers. any number can also be written by using only zero and 1. This is the binary (base 2) system of mathematics that is used in computers today.

unique significance. He also noted that the ten Hindu-Arabic numbers (987654321 and zero) possess the ability to express an infinite variety of numbers.
Four centuries later, Leibniz, while reading the I Ching, recognised that, instead of using ten numbers, any number can also be written by using only zero and 1. This is the binary (base 2) system of mathematics that is used in com­puters today.

These two inventions (positional value of a digit and the symbol for zero) are considered by many to be among the most important developments in mathematics in the last 3000 years. Zero allows every number to be put in its rightful place. The number 2 in front of three zeros (2000) has an entirely difTerent value from the same number 2 in front of six (2.000,000) or nine (2,000,000,000) zeros. Each given number could be considered to have two values: a fundamen­tal value indicated by the isolated numeral itself. and a place value dependent on the numeral's location within the sequence of digits used to express a particular number.
China invented the abacus (swm pal! ~~) or counting board in the sixth century BC and continued to use it for the next 2500 years. There is an implied understanding of both positional value and the concept of zero whenever a number is 'registered' on the abacus. For instance, the number lOO}
involves placing a single disc in the fourth box from the right, leaving the third and second boxes empty to signify zeros. and putting another single disc in the first box. However. when this same number was written down as Chinese charac­ters, it was transcribed as yi qial! yi - 'f - (onc thousand one).
But like old Roman numerals. the three words yi (lian yi possess neither place value nor the symbol for zero. This meant that Chinese mathematicians were unable to transpose numbers on to paper quickly and easily for accurate calcu­lation. Mathematical thought lacked an adequate alphabet for expression. progression or development. As a result, calcu­lus was never invented, the development of science was hin­dered and China fell behind the west in technology.*
. Note: According to Robert Temple in Tile Cm;us of CIIi/1lI (l9X6), the zero symhol orst appeared in print in China in 1247. However. the Chinese were secretive and seldom puhlished their work. It was also traditional not to reveal step-by-step calculations in solving mathematical problems.

If one compares the writings of Marco Polo (1254-1324), describing the Yuan dynasty, with those of Matteo Ricci (1552-1610), who was in China during the Ming dynasty,
the differences are astonishing. Marco Polo's The Book of
Marco Polo is tilled with the might, power and marvels (print­ing, paper money, grand canals) of a rich and amazingly advanced country, while Matteo Ricc!' s China in the Sixteenth Century describes a nation ignorant of physics, geometry and astronomy; one whose people suffered from illiteracy and superstition and practised foot-binding and female infanticide. Far from being in awe of his host-country, Ricci was attracting potential converts (including some of the best and brightest scholar-mandarins) by dazzling them with Euro­pean clocks, prisms, telescopes, globes, maps, paintings and books on mathematics and astronomy. In a period of less than 300 years the west had caught up with and surpassed China in science and technology.
During the summer of 1951, when I was thirteen, my stepmother allowed me to come home for a few days to recuperate from pnellmonia (see page 9°). My brother James had just escaped from China to Hong Kong and was sharing a room with my grandfather. They placed a eot bebNeen their two beds and the three of us would talk deep into the night, with Jamcs and me bombarding Ye Ye with questions about his past. His life as a boy in the city of Nantao, Shanghai, during the Qing dynasty fascinated me.
'V/hat was it like, wearing a queue?' I asked one night.
'My older brothers used to tease me by tying my queue to
a bed post when I was sleeping. I always hated my hairstyle but the queue was mandated by the Qing emperors and dis­

obedicnce meant dcath by bchcading. The only permitted ;dlcrnativc was to shave off all the hair on my head and I soon did so.'
'What was Father like as a young man?' James said.
'He was so intelligent! I remember when he first joined my
finn, Hwa Chong Hong, at eighteen. He had just come to Tianjin from Shanghai and was with us for barely three months when our boss, K. C. Li, called me into his office. "This son of yours is rcally something!" he exclaimed. "In less than three months he has already cleared up our messy accounts and caught the thief in our midst."
'In those days, accounts werc added, subtracted, multiplied or dividcd only by nsing the abacus. ':' Now the abacus is a wonderful instrument, but there is no written record of the steps a person goes throngh in arriving at his final number. In fact, it is traditional in China not to write down the sequence of calculations one goes through in solving mathcmatical prob­lems. What your father did was to teach everyone the foreigners' number system and insist that everyone write down his calculations on paper one step at a time.
'For over two thousand years additions, subtractions, multi­plications and divisions involving large numbers could only be carried out on the abacus because written Chinese numbers contain neithcr zcro nor position.

Aish HaTorah ("Fire of the Torah") is an Orthodox Jewish outreach organization and yeshiva. The organization's stated mission is "providing opportunities for Jews of all backgrounds to discover their heritage." Its headquarters are in the Old City of Jerusalem. The government of Israel awarded it a piece of land facing the Western Wall.

The organization has "branches" or franchises in many cities around the world which contain large populations of Jews. Each branch has independent governance and funding.

In Jerusalem, the Aish HaTorah yeshiva offers both beginners' drop-in classes and full-time, intensive study programs for Jewish men and women of all backgrounds and levels of knowledge. Areas of study include Hebrew Bible, Talmud, Jewish history, Jewish philosophy, and Hebrew language ulpan. A US-accredited college, the yeshiva offers degrees to college and university age students.

The rabbinic ordination program combines classical Talmudic training with intensive instruction in outreach and leadership skills. Over 200 men have graduated from its rabbinic program, assuming leadership and religious roles in many Jewish communities around the world.

Meir lies at the edge of the cultivation, about 50km north-west of Asyut. The modern town of el-Qusiya, about 8km to the east of Meir, probably derives its name from the ancient Qis, classical Cusae during Graeco-Roman times. Although Qis was capital of the 14th Upper Egyptian nome, there are few remaining traces of the ancient town. It was in the necropolis at Meir that the provincial rulers, or nomarchs of the region were buried in tombs high in the hillside, with the more humble population further down the slope.

AN OVERVIEW OF SACRED GEOMETRY

Gregg Hall

Sacred Geometry is the theory of dimensional evolution which assumes the universe is a living system kept together by the existence of a sacred geometry that encompasses the entire cosmos and makes for the blueprint for the mani-festation of what we know as our material universe and in addition organizes the context through which all love evolves.

Our universe was designed to be highly efficient and is capable of performing a wide range of multiple functions at the same time. The very same geometry which provides structure to physical reality also allows for the perceptual environments that people and civilizations must move through as part of a systematic learning process on the path towardsevolution.

Each dimension of this sacred geometry holds a unique place of perceptual space and a context of learning both for personal and social evolution. As each new dimension appears a new set of perceptions and potentials is awakened which we are free to accept and actualize or ignore. It is in understanding the dimensional structure which exists all around us that allows us to be able to understand the path and direction of personal and social evolution.

Even though our modern science generally believes there is nothing of deeper meaning to the dimensional geometry of the universe other than the actual physical aspects, there is a view that is almost diametrically opposed to this that began with the Greek philosopher Pythagoras in 500 B.C. Pythagoras believed and taught the theory or belief that all of the mathematical patterns in the universe were actually expressions of divine intelligence and signified a divine intention.

According to Pythagoras, we are surrounded by organizational intelligence that is shown in its purest from through mathematical formulas and musical harmonies and allowing ourselves to be at the center of our experience; we can know and share the organizing patterns and principles that pervade the universe. This is a thought that was even held by Albert Einstein, who stated that he received his greatest breakthroughs after praying and sleeping. The answers to the questions he was seeking came to him from the Universe while he slept! This is also the way that it can be explained for someone who is blind to be able to sculpt and for a deaf person, such as Beethoven to be able to compose intricate musical scores.

Plato, who taught over a hundred years after Pythagoras, continued in the teachings of Pythagorean thought in espousing that the universe or cosmos as Pythagoras termed it was a place of "harmonious and beautiful order" and placed such a high regard on geometry that he placed a sign above the door to his academy stating, "Let no one unacquainted with geometry enter here."

Prakrti From Wikipedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Prakrti or Prakriti (from Sanskrit language प्रकृ्रति, prakṛti) is, according to Vedanta philosophy, the basic matter of which the Universe consists. It is composed of the three gunas or modes, known as tamas (ignorance), rajas (passion) and sattva (goodness).

It is described in Bhagavad Gita as an inferior type of energy to the living beings (jivas), and to the Supreme Person (Paramatma or Bhagavan). It is closely associated with the concept of Maya within Vedic scripture.

Devi Prakriti Shakti in the context of Shaktis as forces unifies Kundalini, Kriya, Itcha, Para, Jnana, Mantrika Shaktis. Each is in a chakra.

Prakriti also means nature. Nature can be described as environment. It can also be used to denote the 'feminine' in sense of the 'male' being the purusha.

According to ayurveda our body is made up of three doshas kapha, pitta, vayu. The balance or imbalance of these doshas defines the prakriti of our body (besides Devi Prakriti in sahasrara chakra.)

PurushaFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In Hinduism, Purusha (Sanskrit puruṣa, पुरुष "man, Cosmic Man", in Sutra literature also called puṃs "man") is the "self" which pervades the universe. The Vedic divinities are considered to be the human mind's interpretation of the many facets of Purusha. According to the Rigvedic Purusha sukta, Purusha was dismembered by the devas -- his mind is the Moon, his eyes are the Sun, and his breath is the wind.

In the Rigveda, Purusha is described as a primeval giant, not unlike the Norse Ymir[citation needed], that is sacrificed by the gods (see Purushamedha) and from whose body the world and the varnas (castes) are built. He is described as having a thousand heads and a thousand feet. He emanated Viraj, the female creative principle, from which he is reborn in turn before the world was made out of his parts.

In the sacrifice of Purusha, the Vedic chants were first created. The horses and cows were born, the Brahmins were made from Purusha's mouth, the Kshatriyas from his arms, the Vaishyas from his thighs, and the Shudras from his feet.[2] The Moon was born from his spirit, the Sun from his eyes, the heavens from his skull. Indra and Agni emerged from his mouth.

The parallel to Norse Ymir is often considered to reflect the myth's origin in Proto-Indo-European religion.

In Samkhya, a school of Hindu philosophy, Purusha is pure consciousness. It is thought to be our true identity, to be contrasted with Prakrti, or the material world, which contains all of our organs, senses, and intellectual faculties.

Shakti, meaning sacred force, power, or energy, is the Hindu concept or personification of the divine feminine aspect, sometimes referred to as 'The Divine Mother'. Shakti represents the active, dynamic principles of feminine power. In Shaktism, Shakti is worshiped as the Supreme Being. However, in other Hindu traditions of Shaivism and Vaishnavism, Shakti embodies the active feminine energy Prakriti of Purusha, who is Vishnu in Vaishnavism or Shiva in Shaivism. Vishnu's female counterpart is called Lakshmi, with Parvati being the female half of Shiva.

In traditional Shiva-associated Shaktism

Shaktism regards Devi (lit., "the Goddess") as the Supreme Brahman itself, the "one without a second", with all other forms of divinity, female or male, considered to be merely Her diverse manifestations. In the details of its philosophy and practice, Shaktism resembles Saivism. However, Shaktas (Sanskrit: Śakta, शक्त), practitioners of Shaktism, focus most or all worship on Shakti, as the dynamic feminine aspect of the Supreme Divine. Shiva, the masculine aspect of divinity, is considered solely transcendent, and Shiva's worship is generally relegated to an auxiliary role.[1]

In Vaishnavism

Like Shiva-associated Shaktism, Shakti embodies the active feminine energy and power of male supreme deity Vishnu in Vaishnavism. Vishnu's female counterpart is called Lakshmi. However, in Srivaishnavism, a school of Vaishnavism, Lakshmi or Sri does not play any particular part in the creative function of the Lord, because Prakriti is the manifest aspect of the Lord. [2] In Srivaishnavism, Vishnu alone is the great creator, although Sri is coeval with Him.[3] As Vishnu is the Father who stands for absolute justice, Sri is the Mother of the universe and is considered to be important element in the redemption of mankind, and is the interceder with Vishnu on behalf of spiritual seekers.[4]

In Smarta Advaita tradition

In the Smarta Advaita sect of Hinduism, Shakti is considered to be one of five equal bonafide personal forms of God in the panchadeva system advocated by Adi Shankara. [5]

Evolution

David Kinsley believes that the concept of "Shakti" may be derived from Lord Indra's consort Sachi (Indrani), meaning power.[6] Indrani is part of a group of seven or eight mother goddesses called the Matrikas (Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Maheshvari, Indrani, Kumari, Varahi and Chamunda and/or Narasimhi), who are considered shaktis of major Hindu gods(Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Indra, Skanda, Varaha/Yama and Devi and Narasimha respectively).

The Shakti goddess is also known as Amma (meaning 'mother') in south India, especially in the states of Tamil Nadu,Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. There are many temples devoted to various incarnations of the Shakti goddess in most of the villages in South India. The rural people believe that Shakti is the protector of the village, the punisher of evil people, the curer of diseases, and the one who gives welfare to the village. They celebrate Shakti Jataras with a lot of hue and great interest once a year. Some examples of incarnations are Gangamma, Aarti, Kamakshamma, Kanakadurga, Mahalakshmammma, Meeenakshamma, Poleramma and Perantalamma.

Shakti, meaning sacred force, power, or energy, is the Hindu concept or personification of the divine feminine aspect, sometimes referred to as 'The Divine Mother'. Shakti represents the active, dynamic principles of feminine power. In Shaktism, Shakti is worshiped as the Supreme Being. However, in other Hindu traditions of Shaivism and Vaishnavism, Shakti embodies the active feminine energy Prakriti of Purusha, who is Vishnu in Vaishnavism or Shiva in Shaivism. Vishnu's female counterpart is called Lakshmi, with Parvati being the female half of Shiva.

In traditional Shiva-associated Shaktism
 
Shaktism regards Devi (lit., "the Goddess") as the Supreme Brahman itself, the "one without a second", with all other forms of divinity, female or male, considered to be merely Her diverse manifestations. In the details of its philosophy and practice, Shaktism resembles Saivism. However, Shaktas (Sanskrit: Śakta, शक्त), practitioners of Shaktism, focus most or all worship on Shakti, as the dynamic feminine aspect of the Supreme Divine. Shiva, the masculine aspect of divinity, is considered solely transcendent, and Shiva's worship is generally relegated to an auxiliary role.[1]

Jump to: navigation, search

Prana (प्राण, IAST: prāṇa) is the Sanskrit for "breath" (from the root prā "to fill", cognate to Latin plenus "full"). It is one of the five organs of vitality or sensation, viz. prana "breath", vac "speech", caksus "sight", shrotra "hearing", and manas "thought" (nose, mouth, eyes, ears and mind; ChUp. 2.7.1).

In Vedantic philosophy, it is the notion of a vital, life-sustaining force of living beings and vital energy, comparable to the Chinese notion of Qi. Prana is a central concept in Ayurveda and Yoga where it is believed to flow through a network of fine subtle channels called nadis. The Pranamaya-kosha is one of the five Koshas or "sheaths" of the Atman

Prana was first expounded in the Upanishads, where it is part of the worldly, physical realm, sustaining the body and the mother of thought and thus also of the mind. Prana suffuses all living form but is not itself the Atma or individual soul. In the Ayurveda, the Sun and sunshine are held to be a source of Prana.

[edit] Nadis
Further information: Nadi (yoga)

In Yoga, the three main channels of prana are the Ida, the Pingala and the Sushumna. Ida relates to the left side of the body, terminating at the left nostril and pingala to the right side of the body, terminating at the right nostril. In some practices, alternate nostril breathing balances the prana that flows within the body. When prana enters a period of uplifted, intensified activity, the Yogic tradition refers to it as Pranotthana.[1]

[edit] The Five Pranas

In Ayurveda, the Prana is further classified into subcategories, referred to as pranas. According to Hindu philosophy these are the vital principles of basic energy and subtle faculties of an individual that sustain physiological processes. There are five pranas or vital currents in the Hindu system:[2]

  1. Prana : Responsible for the beating of the heart and breathing. Prana enters the body through the breath and is sent to every cell through the circulatory system.
  2. Apana : Responsible for the elimination of waste products from the body through the lungs and excretory systems.
  3. Udana : Responsible for producing sounds through the vocal apparatus, as in speaking, singing, laughing, and crying. Also it represents the conscious energy required to produce the vocal sounds corresponding to the intent of the being. Hence Samyama on udana gives the higher centers total control over the body.
  4. Samana : Responsible for the digestion of food and cell metabolism (ie. the repair and manufacture of new cells and growth). Samana also includes the heat regulating processes of the body. Auras are projections of this current. By meditational practices one can see auras of light around every being. Yogis who do special practise on samana can produce a blazing aura at will.
  5. Vyana : Responsible for the expansion and contraction processes of the body, eg. the voluntary muscular system.

[edit] Pranayama

Pranayama is the practice in which the control of prana is achieved (initially) from the control of one's breathing. According to Yogic philosophy the breath, or air, is merely a gateway to the world of prana and its manifestation in the body. In yoga, pranayama techniques are used to control the movement of these vital energies within the body, which is said to lead to an increase in vitality in the practitioner. The practice of these techniques is not trivial, and Kason (2000)[3] mentions circumstances where pranayama techniques might disrupt the balance of a person's life.

Pranayama (Sanskrit: prāṇāyāma) is a Sanskrit word meaning "lengthening of the prana or breath". The word is composed of two Sanskrit words, Prāna, life force, or vital energy, particularly, the breath, and "āyāma", to lengthen or extend. It is often translated as control of the life force (prana).[1][2][3][4] When used as a technical term in yoga, it is often translated more specifically as "breath control".[5][6][7] Literal translations include A. A. Macdonell's "suspension of breath"[8] and I. K. Taimni's "regulation of breath".[9]

The Qigong practice in China may also have its roots in Pranayama.[citation needed]

[edit] Etymology

Pranayama (Devanagari: प्राणायाम, prāṇāyāma) is a Sanskrit compound.

V. S. Apte provides fourteen different meanings for the word prana (Devanagari: प्राण, prāṇa) including these:[10]

  • Breath, respiration
  • The breath of life, vital air, principle of life (usually plural in this sense, there being five such vital airs generally assumed, but three, six, seven, nine, and even ten are also spoken of)[11]
  • Energy, vigor
  • The spirit or soul

Of these meanings, the concept of "vital air" is used by Bhattacharyya to describe the concept as used in Sanskrit texts dealing with pranayama.[12] Thomas McEvilley translates "prana" as "spirit-energy".[13]

Monier-Williams defines the compound prāṇāyāma as (m., also pl.) "N. of the three 'breath-exercises' performed during Saṃdhyā (See pūraka, recaka, kumbhaka"[14][15] This technical definition refers to a particular system of breath control with three processes as explained by Bhattacharyya: pūraka (to take the breath inside), kumbhaka (to retain it), and recaka (to discharge it).[16] There are also other processes of pranayama in addition to this three-step model.[17]

Macdonell gives the etymology as prāṇa + āyāma and defines it as "m. suspension of breath (sts. pl.)".[18]

Apte's definition of āyāmaḥ derives it from ā + yām and provides several variant meanings for it when used in compounds. The first three meanings have to do with "length", "expansion, extension", and "stretching, extending", but in the specific case of use in the compound prāṇāyāma he defines āyāmaḥ as meaning "restrain, control, stopping".[19]

An alternative etymology for the compound is cited by Ramamurti Mishra, who says that:

"Expansion of individual energy into cosmic energy is called prāṇāyāma (prāṇa, energy + ayām, expansion)."[20]

The word "yama" (Devanagari: याम, yāma) means "cessation"[21][22] or more generally "control" or "restraint".[23][24]

[edit] Hatha and Raja Yoga Varieties

Some scholars distinguish between hatha and raja yoga varieties of pranayama, with the former variety usually prescribed for the beginner. According to Taimni, hatha yogic pranayama involves manipulation of pranic currents through breath regulation for bringing about the control of chitta-vrittis and changes in consciousness, whereas raja yogic pranayama involves the control of chitta-vrittis by consciousness directly through the will of the mind.[25] Students qualified to practice pranayama are therefore always initiated first in the techniques of hatha pranayama.[26]

[edit] Bhagavad Gita

Pranayama is mentioned in verse 4.29 of the Bhagavat Gita.[27]

[edit] Quotes

Prana is a subtle invisible force. It is the life-force that pervades the body. It is the factor that connects the body and the mind, because it is connected on one side with the body and on the other side with the mind. It is the connecting link between the body and the mind. The body and the mind have no direct connection. They are connected through Prana only and this Prana is different from the breathing you have in your physical body.

Swami Chidananda Saraswati[28]

Yoga works primarily with the energy in the body, through the science of pranayama, or energy-control. Prana means also ‘breath.’ Yoga teaches how, through breath-control, to still the mind and attain higher states of awareness. The higher teachings of yoga take one beyond techniques, and show the yogi, or yoga practitioner, how to direct his concentration in such a way as not only to harmonize human with divine consciousness, but to merge his consciousness in the Infinite.

Paramahansa Yogananda[29]

[edit] Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Pranayama is the fourth 'limb' of the eight limbs of Raja Yoga mentioned in verse 2.29 in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.[30][31] Patanjali discusses his specific approach to pranayama in verses 2.49 through 2.51, and devotes verses 2.52 and 2.53 to explaining the benefits of the practice.[32] Patanjali refers to pranayama as the control of life force that comes as a result of practicing the various breathing techniques, rather than the numerous breathing exercises themselves.[33][29]

Many yoga teachers advise that pranayama should be part of an overall practice that includes the other limbs of Patanjali's Raja Yoga teachings, especially Yama, Niyama, and Asana.[34]

[edit] Medical claims

Several researchers have reported that pranayama techniques are beneficial in treating a range of stress related disorders,[35] improving autonomic functions,[36] relieving symptoms of asthma,[37][38] and reducing signs of oxidative stress.[39][40] Practitioners report that the practice of pranayama develops a steady mind, strong will-power, and sound judgement,[34] and also claim that sustained pranayama practice extends life and enhances perception.[41]

[edit] Cautions

Many yoga teachers recommend that pranayama techniques be practiced with care, and that advanced pranayama techniques should be practiced under the guidance of a teacher. These cautions are also made in traditional Hindu literature.[42][43] [44]

Kundalini (kuṇḍalinī कुण्डलिनी) Sanskrit, literally "coiled". In Indian yoga, a "corporeal energy"[1] - an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or Shakti, envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine,[2][3][4] hence a number of English renderings of the term such as 'serpent power'. Kundalini is considered a part of the subtle body along with chakras (energy centres) and nadis (channels). The overall concept has many points in common with Chinese acupuncture.

Yoga and Tantra propose that this energy may be "awakened" by such means as austerities, breath and other physical exercises, visualization and chanting. It may then rise up a subtle channel at the spine (called Sushumna) to the head, bringing psychological illumination. Each chakra is said to contain special characteristics.[5] Yogis tend to attempt this alone, Tantrics in couples, both usually under the instruction of a guru.

When Kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess, then, when it rises to the head, it unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva). The aspirant becomes engrossed in deep meditation and infinite bliss.[6][7]

[edit] Indian sources

A number of models of this esoteric subtle anatomy occur in the class of texts known as Āgamas or Tantras, a large body of scriptures, rejected by many orthodox brahmins.[8] In early texts there are various systems of chakras and nadis, with varying connections between them. Over time a system of six or seven chakras up the spine was adopted by most schools. This particular system, which may have originated in about the 11th century AD, rapidly became widely popular.[9] This is the conventional arrangement cited by Monier-Williams, where the chakras are defined as "6 in number, one above the other".[10]

The most famous of the Yoga Upanishads, the Yogatattva, mentions four kinds of yoga, one of which, laya-yoga, involves Kundalini.[11] Another source text for the concept is the Hatha Yoga Pradipika written by Swami Svatmarama (English translation, 1992) somewhere between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries.[12][citation needed]

[edit] Western interpretation

Sir John Woodroffe (pen name Arthur Avalon) was one of the first to bring the notion of Kundalini to the West. A High Court Judge in Calcutta, he became interested in Shaktism and Hindu Tantra. His translation of and commentary on two key texts was published as The Serpent Power. Woodroffe rendered Kundalini as "Serpent Power".

Western awareness of the idea of Kundalini was strengthened by the Theosophical Society and the interest of the psychoanalyst Carl Jung (1875-1961)[2]. "Jung's seminar on Kundalini yoga, presented to the Psychological Club in Zurich in 1932, has been widely regarded as a milestone in the psychological understanding of Eastern thought. Kundalini yoga presented Jung with a model for the development of higher consciousness, and he interpreted its symbols in terms of the process of individuation".[13]

In the early '30s two Italian scholars, Tommaso Palamidessi and Julius Evola, published several books with the intent of re-interpreting alchemy with reference to yoga.[14] Those works had an impact on modern interpretations of Alchemy as a mystical science. In those works, Kundalini is called an Igneous Power or Serpentine Fire.

Another popularizer of the concept of Kundalini among Western readers was Gopi Krishna. His autobiography is entitled Kundalini—The Evolutionary Energy in Man.[15] According to June McDaniel, his writings have influenced Western interest in kundalini yoga.[16] Swami Sivananda produced an English language manual of Kundalini Yoga methods. Other well-known spiritual teachers who have made use of the idea of kundalini include Osho, George Gurdjieff, Paramahansa Yogananda, Rudi (Swami Rudrananda), Yogi Bhajan and Nirmala Srivastava.

Kundalini references may commonly be found at present in a wide variety of derivative "New Age" presentations. Stuart Sovatsky warns that the popularization of the term within new religious movements has not always contributed to a mature understanding of the concept.[17]

Recently, there has been a growing interest within the medical community to study the physiological effects of meditation, and some of these studies have applied the discipline of Kundalini Yoga to their clinical settings.[18][19] Their findings are not all positive. Researchers in the fields of Humanistic psychology,[20] Transpersonal psychology,[21] and Near-death studies[22][23] describe a complex pattern of sensory, motor, mental and affective symptoms associated with the concept of Kundalini, sometimes called the Kundalini Syndrome.[24]

Lukoff, Lu & Turner[25][citation needed] notes that a number of psychological difficulties might be associated with Asian spiritual practices, and that Asian traditions recognize a number of pitfalls associated with intensive meditation practice. Transpersonal literature[26] also notes that kundalini practice is not without dangers. Anxiety, dissociation, depersonalization, altered perceptions, agitation, and muscular tension have been observed in western meditation practitioners[27] and psychological literature is now addressing the occurrence of meditation-related problems in Western contemplative life.[28][29]

Some modern experimental research [30]seeks to establish links between Kundalini practice and the ideas of Wilhelm Reich and his followers.

Kundalini (kuṇḍalinī कुण्डलिनी) Sanskrit, literally "coiled". In Indian yoga, a "corporeal energy"[1] - an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or Shakti, envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine,[2][3][4] hence a number of English renderings of the term such as 'serpent power'. Kundalini is considered a part of the subtle body along with chakras (energy centres) and nadis (channels). The overall concept has many points in common with Chinese acupuncture.
 
Yoga and Tantra propose that this energy may be "awakened" by such means as austerities, breath and other physical exercises, visualization and chanting. It may then rise up a subtle channel at the spine (called Sushumna) to the head, bringing psychological illumination. Each chakra is said to contain special characteristics.[5] Yogis tend to attempt this alone, Tantrics in couples, both usually under the instruction of a guru.
 
When Kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess, then, when it rises to the head, it unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva). The aspirant becomes engrossed in deep meditation and infinite bliss.[6][7]

[edit] Indian sources A number of models of this esoteric subtle anatomy occur in the class of texts known as Āgamas or Tantras, a large body of scriptures, rejected by many orthodox brahmins.[8] In early texts there are various systems of chakras and nadis, with varying connections between them. Over time a system of six or seven chakras up the spine was adopted by most schools. This particular system, which may have originated in about the 11th century AD, rapidly became widely popular.[9] This is the conventional arrangement cited by Monier-Williams, where the chakras are defined as "6 in number, one above the other".[10]
 
The most famous of the Yoga Upanishads, the Yogatattva, mentions four kinds of yoga, one of which, laya-yoga, involves Kundalini.[11] Another source text for the concept is the Hatha Yoga Pradipika written by Swami Svatmarama (English translation, 1992) somewhere between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries.[12][citation needed]
 
 
 
[edit] Western interpretation Sir John Woodroffe (pen name Arthur Avalon) was one of the first to bring the notion of Kundalini to the West. A High Court Judge in Calcutta, he became interested in Shaktism and Hindu Tantra. His translation of and commentary on two key texts was published as The Serpent Power. Woodroffe rendered Kundalini as "Serpent Power".

This article is about the German word. For other uses, see Zeitgeist (disambiguation).

Zeitgeist (pronounced [ˈtsa͡ɪtga͡ɪst] (help·info)) is originally a German expression that means "the spirit of the age", literally translated as "time (Zeit) spirit (Geist)". It describes the intellectual and cultural climate of an era. In German, the word has more layers of meaning than the English translation, including the fact that Zeitgeist can only be observed for past events.

Zeitgeist has achieved a unique status among German loanwords in other tongues, having found an entrance into English, Spanish and Japanese.

Origins

The concept of Zeitgeist goes back to Johann Gottfried Herder and other German Romantics such as Cornelius Jagdmann, but is best known in relation to Hegel's philosophy of history. In 1769 Herder wrote a critique of the work Genius seculi by the philologist Christian Adolph Klotz (German Wikipedia article) and introduced the word Zeitgeist into German as a translation of genius seculi (Latin: genius - "guardian spirit" and saeculi - "of the century").

The German Romantics, habitually tempted to reduce the past to essences, treated the Zeitgeist as an historical character in its own right, rather than a generalized description for an era.

Definitions

"Zeitgeist" refers to the ethos of a select group of people, that express a particular (predominantly post-modern) world view, which is prevalent at a particular period of socio-cultural progression.

Zeitgeist is the experience of a dominant cultural climate that defines, particularly in Hegelian thinking, an era in the dialectical progression of a people or the world at large. Hegel's main contribution to the formulation of the concept of Volksgeist is the attribution of a historical character to the concept. The spirit of a nation is one of the manifestations of "World Spirit" (Weltgeist). That Spirit is essentially alive and active throughout mankind's history. Now, the spirit of a nation is an intermediate stage of world history as the history of the World Spirit. The World Spirit gives impetus to the realization of the historical spirits of various nations (Volksgeister').

The spirits of individual nations are both the articulations (Gliederungen) of an organization and its realization. The spirits of individual nations represent a segment of the World Spirit out of which emerges the unlimited universal spirit. A comparison is introduced here between the status of an individual and that of a nation's spirit. In the process of his formation the individual undergoes various changes without, however, losing his identity. As a part of world history, a nation—exhibiting a certain trend expressed in its Volksgeist— plays its part in the total process of world history. But once it contributes its share to world history it can no longer play a role in the process of world history. The submersion in the total process prevents a people's cultural rebirth, because it has exhausted its creativity in the historical growth of its guiding spirit. It is for this reason that one of Hegel's disciples, Michelet, considered the idea of a renaissance of the Jewish people as philosophically impossible.

ALIENS WILL LAND HERE TOMORROW EXPERTS SAY THAT PROOF IS OUT THERE

by Gemma Wheatley

ALIENS are set to land on Earth tomorrow to prove to humans that there really is life out there. Extra-terrestrials will make- a grand entrance to our planet by flying across our skies in a space craft that will be visible for three days, experts said.
The internet was buzzing with claims that the strange alien aircraft could even land after it appears over the American desert.
So many people reckon the rumour is true, bookies have stopped takin. bets on the UFO prediction after an unprecedented rush.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "This is the first time that an internet phenotnenon has affected our business."
American psychic Blossom Goodchild sparked the frenzy after claiming aliens informed her of their plans.
Bookies are set to lose militoris of pounds if E.T.'s pals do approach our planet. Mr Adams added: "We now have seven-figure
liabilities if the ship does appear and we have decided to duck any more big bets until October 14 has passed, hopefully without
incident."

LOVE

Blossom claimed that aliens have announced that one of their craft will appear in our skies tomorrow as a way of proving to us the existence of other life forms in the universe.
She said they

"come in love to help us and our planet move to a new higher vibration of love". And one UFO blogger wrote: "Stockpile some foods, water and first aid supplies. Be ready to welcome our visitors.
"Be kind to your neighbours who may not understand.
"Be welcoming and greet the visitors with love. What an exciting time."

The news comes as a leading European UFO expert claims he is about to reveal the most significant alien proof ever recorded, filmed over the last six months in Turkey

Haknua Attogan, from the.Sirius UFO Space Science Research Center said:"The images captured are expected to have a tremendous impact throughout the world and could he listed as the most important UFO and extra-terrestrial images ever filmed in all the world"

Akdogan will reveal the footage at the UFO Data Magazine Annual Conference at the end of the month. For details visit ufodata.co.uk.

 

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

SHOCK AND AWE RAW WAR SHOCK AND AWE AWFUL WAR

 

 

The Gettysburg Address is a speech by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and one of the most quoted speeches in United States history. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettysburg_Address

"The Gettysburg Address is a speech by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and one of the most quoted speeches in United States history.[1][2][3] It was delivered at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863, during the American Civil War, four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the decisive Battle of Gettysburg.

Abraham Lincoln's carefully crafted address, secondary to other presentations that day, came to be regarded as one of the greatest speeches in American history. In just over two minutes, Lincoln invoked the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence and redefined the Civil War as a struggle not merely for the Union, but as "a new birth of freedom" that would bring true equality to all of its citizens, and that would also create a unified nation in which states' rights were no longer dominant.

Beginning with the now-iconic phrase "Four score and seven years ago...", Lincoln referred to the events of the Civil War and described the ceremony at Gettysburg as an opportunity not only to consecrate the grounds of a cemetery, but also to dedicate the living to the struggle to ensure that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth"."

 

 

"Despite the speech's prominent place in the history and popular culture of the United States, the exact wording of the speech is disputed. The five known manuscripts of the Gettysburg Address differ in a number of details and also differ from contemporary newspaper reprints of the speech."

 

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that governmen of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
