I just wanted to clarify some stuff I wrote about. I’m not sure if it made sense or not. Grace mentioned she didn’t believe that the aliens or inter/extra-dimensional beings were necessarily superior to us. I agree, and I also don’t think we are superior to any other animal on the planet.
It’s interesting to note that ancient Celtic lore about the Faerie people was very similar to recent alien abduction stories. Also it was said that no one could understand the motivations of the Faeries, they don’t play by our rules which are very similar to the stories of people abducted by aliens.
For all we know we could be one giant science experiment for one group of alien/extra-dimensional peeps, or we’re some kind of zoo. Who knows. It doesn’t really matter other than we can’t possibly understand their motivations. From descriptions people have given of abductions the gray types are very unemotional and have an ant-like group mind sort of thing about them. Then their are the Nordic ones which are more akin to the stories we associate with the Faerie people. Whether they are extra-terrestrial, extra-dimensional or some version of us in the future coming back we really can’t know. But Grace is right, just because they have superior technology does not mean they are better then us. Just like we are not better than a gorilla, just different.
As a matter of fact the more scientists have researched animal intelligence the more they have found many animals to be surprisingly brilliant. Ravens and crows are supposed to be as intelligent as dogs and are excellent tool users. Supposedly Border Collie’s are as smart as chimps, and can understand about 200 words, and commands after just one use. There are many others, like dolphins who among other things can recognize themselves in the mirror, besides us, elephants and chimps this isn’t a really common quality. Anyway, you get my point.
The 2012 thing is pretty scary, not because of the grand cross, those happen a lot, all the time actually. They aren’t fun but they are pretty common. It’s because the Mayan calendar literally stops and calls that date the end of all worlds. Kind of creepy. Terrance McKenna was of the mind that it was going to be some sort of dimensional shift. Some have thought it was when the pole shift would happen, although the pole shift has been going on now for a while and is likely going to continue on its slow steady course. I’ll have to run a chart for that date and do more research. I’ve kind of resisted it because I guess I didn’t really want to know especially if it truly was fated so long before we could do anything about it. It seems unfair and I usually focus on the intersection of fate and free will, the area where we can control our destiny if we choose to do so. The only thing to me that fits with the end of the world happening on that day exactly, especially having been forecasted so long ago by the Mayan’s is potentially a huge comet or asteroid hitting the planet that day that the Mayan’s had some kind of astronomical information about which we don’t yet have.
There are technologies which have been lost over time, some relatively recently discovered such as indoor plumbing; turns out the Minoans (and I think the Romans may have imported some aspects of this with their group bath house situations) not only had it, but also multiple story buildings. The Roman’s also had the multi-story technology, but it wasn’t as sophisticated from what I’ve read. All of this was pretty recently uncovered by archaeologists; so anyone poo-pooing the idea that the ancients were sophisticated technologically need only to think about that, and realize we didn’t discover they had this technology until the past 15 years or so.
And I realized today after hearing it on the news that Obama’s going to be sworn in at noon. I remember thinking this was the most logical time, but was given the time of 2 PM and ran a chart for that time instead. I’m going to put in the new time, and do analysis of his inauguration and what it means for the country for the next post. And also rectify Lincoln’s chart and the comparison between both of them again.
I really wonder if Obama is Lincoln re-incarnated. It kind of makes sense. Lincoln was never able to finish the job and Obama has so much in common with him in terms of their career paths. Although, of course, Obama might have used Lincoln as a role model which could explain this aspect of his life. But I don’t know. There is a feeling about Obama, besides him being tall and skinny, and the opposite sign of Lincoln, something about his coolness and great oratory ability that seems very Lincon-esk.
On the subject of both England and the US going bankrupt that Gwen asked in a post, when my father-in-law told me he was voting for Bush the first time around I said to him, “He’s going to bankrupt this country just like he’s done with every company he headed.” I think Obama is going gray already trying to figure a way out of this financial mess. I’ll have to meditate more on this and get back to you though. But I feel we are teetering that way right now. We are in so much debt to China and now they are doing all of our manufacturing, it will be very hard to extricate ourselves from this mess. I will do some readings about this though and a specific post about this issue over the next week.
Well, Happy Inauguration everyone! It’s a new era. Let’s make it a better one by staying involved. As we can all see politics are not something that happen far away on a hill that have nothing to do with us personally. What goes on in Washington or in my case Sacramento because I live in CA, affects us personally from our retirement (thank GOD and Harry Reid that Social Security didn’t end up invested in the stock market) to our children’s education to our health care, to our jobs.
Our lives are directly and indirectly effected by politics and public policy from the moment we are born. From the opportunities we get in terms of education, to the whether we will be taken care of in our old age. I’m so happy to see people getting involved and the word apathy considered no longer cool.
Best wishes and many blessings to all!
