You talking about "that matreiya thing"?
No not at all. These were just musings in my own mind that I conveyed through the post. You see I always felt something was not right with everything. Ever since I could remember. I chalked it up to upbringing or something along these lines.
I see now that there is an agenda that has been ongoing and I believe what Proto is describing is that agenda. It's huge and very complex. I don't understand it in its entirety yet but I am working toward that end.
That is why I was encouraging Proto to start a thread on this very subject. He has done a lot of looking into it and it lead him to quite a few startling conclusions that everyone would enjoy.
The Principality of Seborga' (Italian: Principato di Sebrga) also known as Seborga is a small town, and self-proclaimed principality, located in the flowery back hills of Liguria, in north west Italy, near the French border and the sovereign principality of Monaco. With a main economic activity of horticulture and tourism, Seborga is the most famous Italian micronation in the world, folloewd by the defunct Rose Island. edit History and principality Unlike most micronations, Seborga does have an indisputed past as a feudal state, albeit not as a hereditary principality, but an ecclesiastic one which clearly no longer exists. In 954 its territory was ceded by the counts of Ventimiglia to the monks of Lerino, the Cistercian monastery was founded. In 1079 its abbots were also made Princes of the Holy Roman Empire, temporally in chief of the principality of Seborga.
"Seborga's history stretches back to the Middle Ages," notes the Wall Street Journal, "when a local monastery and then crusading Knights Templar ruled it under a constitution that local historians assert make its parliament the oldest in Europe. Mr. Carbone said that Seborga had been recognized by the Vatican as an independent state, and had never officially been made a part of Italy. 'He was right as a matter of law,' says Guy P. Dancosse, a Montreal lawyer hired by Seborga to pursue its legal claims at the International Court of Justice. But, adds Mr. Dancosse, 'the international bodies are not inclined to recognize what we call the ministates.' "Mr. Carbone set about achieving international recognition" the WSJ notes. "In addition to local coinage, there was the Seborgan army -- a single individual outfitted in a ceremonial uniform who was said to function as Mr. Carbone's bodyguard." "For the most part, Italy took a hands-off attitude as long as Seborgans paid their taxes. "We pay taxes like all other foreigners who work in Italy," Mr. Carbone told the Washington Post in 1997.
Seborga is situated along Provincial Road 57 in Imperia. The nearest freeway access is at the Bordighera exit on the A10. The nearest railway station is also the one in Bordighera, on the Ventimiglia-Genoa line. Main article: Principality of Seborga In the early 1960s, Giorgio Carbone, then head of the local flower-growers co-operative, began promoting the idea that Seborga retained its historic independence as a principality. By 1963 the people of Seborga were sufficiently convinced of these arguments to elect Carbone as their ostensible head of state. He then assumed the title Giorgio I, Prince of Seborga, which he has claimed ever since. Carbone's status as prince was further supported by locals on 23 April 1995, when, in an informal referendum, Seborgans voted 304 in favour, 4 against, for the principality's constitution, and in favour of independence from Italy. Carbone is known locally as Sua Tremendità ('Your Tremendousness').
In 1129 The Knights, Escuyer of the the Sovereign Order of Castrum Sepulcri, in company of several Saracines (Muslim Traders of noble origine) lay the foundation of the Sovereign Order of Castrum Sepulcri. This group of Knights and Squires amount to less than a hundred, organisation was poor but faith was paramount. They joined the Knights Templars on their way to the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

I don't believe any unified group controls us,
The teaching of Catholicism and Mithra are very similar. I think there is a real mystery hidden as to why Christianity came to dominate Rome, instead of Mithra.
KABUL, Afghanistan, May 7 (UPI) -- The Taliban told Pope Benedict XVI there will be "serious consequences" if he continues in what the group called efforts to convert Afghans.
The warning appeared Thursday on aleharahl.org, a Web site with connections to the Taliban, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. It was a response to footage on the Al Jazeera network that showed U.S. soldiers with Bibles translated into languages used in Afghanistan.
"The Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan asks Pope Benedict XVI to act to stop the foolish and irresponsible actions of the crusaders upsetting the feelings of Muslim rebels, without awaiting the consequences of a severe reaction," the Taliban said.
