Change is accelerating, invention, connection, ideas, mathematical algorithms, connectivity of people, social systems, this is all accelerating furiously. This is what makes history so interesting. Its a run away freight train on a dark and stormy night. History then is ending. History is a kind of gestation process its a kind of metamorphoses its an episode in the life of a species its a period of high risk its like what a butterfly is doing in a cocoon or what is happening to a child in the womb. Its a gestation process where one form of life is being changed into another. What we must do I think is see our future in the imagination, catalyze the imagination form symbiotic relationships with the plants affirm archaic values and spread the good news that what is out of control what is in fact dying is a world that had become to top heavy within its own hubours to bent by its own false values systems and to dehumanized to care about what happened to its own children. - Terrence McKenna
It is an unfortunate truth that governments left to themselves without the constant watchful eye of the public always end in tyranny. This is a universal historic fact. They always end in tyranny and repression. Your people need you. Your family needs you. Educate yourself, tell your friends, family and co-workers, and voice loudly your concerns to your MLAs and MPs. Speak up while you still can. The trend line is clear and the signs are all around us – if we do nothing, if you do nothing, you, your family, your friends and all those you love will suffer the consequences. - unknown
The gigantic catastrophes that threaten us today are not elemental happenings of a physical or biological order, but psychic events. To a quite terrifying degree we are threatened by wars and revolutions which are nothing more then psychic epidemics. At any moment several millions of human beings may be smitten with a new madness, and then we shall have another world war or devastation revolution. Instead of being at the mercy of wild beasts, earthquakes, landslides, and inundations, modern man is battered by the elemental forces of his own psyche. - Carl Young
How Can You Buy or Sell The Earth?
The following beautiful and prophetic statement in behalf of the environment has been attributed to Chief Sealth (Seattle) and has caused him to become the folkloric hero of the environmental movement, speaking both the mind and the conscience of all concerned about the earth. It was said to have been Chief Sealth's (Seattle's) reply to ｎ in December of 1854, upon the United States Government's offer to buy two million acres of Native American Land in the Pacific Northwest.
The Great Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land. The Great Chief also sends us words of friendship and food will. This is kind of him, since we know he has little need of our friendship in return. But we will consider your offer.
How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?
Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing, and every humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man. So, when the Great Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land, he asks much of us….
This we know: All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. But we will consider your offer to go to the reservation you have for my people. We will live apart, and in peace.
One thing we know, which the white man may one day discover __ our God is the same God. You may think now that you own Him as you wish to own our land: but you cannot.
He is the God of man; and his compassion is equal for the red man and the white. This earth is precious to Him and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on its Creator. The whites too shall pass; perhaps sooner than all other tribes. Continue to contaminate your bed, and you will one night suffocate in your own waste.
But in your perishing you will shine brightly, fired by the strength of the God who brought you to this land and for some special purpose gave you dominion over this land and over the red man. That destiny is a mystery to us, for we do not understand when the buffalo are all slaughtered, the wild horses are tamed, and the view of the ripe hills blotted by talking wires. Where is the thicket? Gone. Where is the eagle? Gone. And what is it to say goodbye to the swift pony and the hunt? The end of living and the beginning of survival. So we will consider your offer to buy the land. If we agree, it will be to secure the reservation you have promised. There, perhaps, we may live out our brief days as we wish. When the last red man has vanished from the earth, and his memory is only the shadow of a cloud moving across the prairie, these shores and forests will still hold the spirits of my people. For they love this earth as a newborne loves its mother's heartbeat. So, if we sell our land, love it as we've loved it. Care for it as we've cared for it. Hold in your mind the memory of the land as it is when you take it. And preserve it for your children, and love it…. As God loves us all. One thing we know. Our God is the same God. This earth is precious to Him. Even the white man cannot be exempt from the common destiny. We may be brothers after all.
We shall see….
SILVER CORD - Like the umbilical cord that connects the developing fetus to its life-sustaining placenta, the Silver Cord connects the developing Human Being to its life-sustaining Soul. The umbilical cord transfers sustenance to the fetus from the mother; the Silver Cord, Life Force from the Soul to its physical form. The umbilical cord is severed at birth, the Silver Cord severs at death. At severance, just as the fetus goes on to become a Human Being, the Human Being goes on to become a Spiritual Being. As it is above, so it is below. Just as the building blocks of the physical form are transmitted via the umbilical cord from the placenta to the fetus, the SEED ATOMS upon which the physical form and personality are to be built travel through the Silver Cord from the Soul to the united egg and sperm. Upon physical death, the Seed Atoms return via the Silver Cord to their origin until activated for another incarnation in the physical world.

War was responsible for 150 million (150,000,000) deaths in the 20th century.
