Okay, I'm finally back in the groove. I figured out the "page 2" issue
and realized my operator error, but the good news is it solicited two
wonderful responses from you that helped confirm a theory of mine.
Everything you discussed including the left-right brain issues between East and West and the 5 elements - reality model, energy, consciousness all
guess what - fit almost perfect with the theology I'm talking about that is derived from the Luxor temple in Egypt.
There reality model was earth, air, fire, water, and metal with the birth/life/death cycle also plus a heavy dose of math (not the diluted numerology
of today) and the 32 life principles that are confuses with Gods by the weak minded Egyptologists.
The author is R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, and I'm digesting him currently, which will take (me) several years. My theory, or at least my current mind
set assuming this hasn't already been thought, is that the either A. Egypt and China were derived from the basicly same source philosophically or B.
Their reality models were interweaved at some point because I'm convinced deep down there isn't much difference between the Sacred Science of
ancient Egypt and the eastern Buddhism, Taoism, and medicines.
The farther back one's mind can look without the influences (filters) of the last 1,700 years, one finds too many world-wide similarities, which tend
to reinforce the previous civilization concept - call it Atlantus if you like.
The important thing is what people like you and I can derive from what we find in order to better understand the world and ourselves. I felt
challanged as a child - as if on a treasure hunt. The world (instictively) seemed so screwed up to me, I had to find the lies and the truths in a
strange cultural soap dominted by greed and materialism, where people were acting crazy. I had to understand "why."
My Dad flew in B-52s in the 50s and early 60s. I watched the ICBMs come up out of their silos during the Cuban missle crisis - smoking off their
liquid fuel vapors. I saw Jack Ruby kill Lee H. Ozwald on Sunday morning TV, so I knew it was interesting times to be alive.
I'll be on vacation for two weeks in West Texas, but will take the laptop and stay in contact. Please let me know your new thread. I think you should
go for it - Eastern medicine, plants, herbs, philosophy etc. I'll learn a lot.
