geometry is a mundane expression of the divine somehow, that everything is related through harmonics, proportion and shape.
This has haunted me since childhood - the secrets of ancient civilizations. I have carried a hunch that geometry is a mundane expression of the divine somehow, that everything is related through harmonics, proportion and shape. I remember how excited I was to discover that smells are in fact geometric expressions....our olfactory receptors come in a variety of shapes and sizes which in turn are activated by particles that fit these niches like keys in a lock, telling us that a certain scent is in the air.
The most exciting thing is of course the possibilities how these things all tie in together. Science is just beginning to understand some of the most basic of concepts concerning how our universe is put together and what makes it tick. If only our scientists were unleashed to work on these problems instead of building new toys for the military-industrial complex!
Mankind could begin a new Renaissance, merging the technology of today with that of the ancients.
There is no telling where it could take us and that is what makes it so fascinating.
Thanks for the thought-provoking post Slayer.
This will make wonderful brain fodder to begin the new year with!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.
PS - Since you mentioned it didn't the Egyptian civilization begin to decline around the time of the Hebrew Exodus? That would add some weight to the idea the Ark of the Covenant was a source of something exceptional.edit on 24-12-2013 by Asktheanimals because: (no reason given)
"My teaching is not a doctrine or philosophy. It is not the result of thought or mental conjecture. It is the result of direct experience. The things I say come from my own experience. You can confirm them all by your own experience.
"My goal is not to explain the universe.
My teaching is not a dogma or a doctrine.
I must state clearly that my teaching is a method to experience reality, and not reality itself, just as a finger pointing at the moon is not the moon itself.
An intelligent person makes use of the finger to see the moon.
A person who only looks at the finger and mistakes it for the moon will never see the real moon.
My teaching is a means of practice, not something to hold onto or worship. Only a fool would continue to carry his raft around after he had already used it to reach the other shore, the shore of liberation."
Russell’s work, however, had almost been forgotten for a long time as Nikola Tesla had advised him to lock it away in a safe for 1000 years, because mankind was not yet mature enough for it. It was Timothy Binder, president of the University of Science and Philosophy, who brought the knowledge of Walter Russell to the attention of a wider circle of interested parties in Europe during a talk in Lindau in 1993. This is where Enrico Bauer (Küsnacht, Switzerland) and Jürgen Ortmüller (Hagen, Germany) picked up this knowledge. The Austrian scientist Wolfgang Wiedergut and others, again and again refer in their works to Russell’s findings and expertise, particularly when it comes to natural sciences.
Poet’s Code of Ethics
1.To attain the brotherhood-of-man idea by giving righteous action and good-will service to every man instead of taking from him that which he has.
2.To discover that all men are extensions of each other, that man is made for man, and that the hurt of one man is the hurt of all men.
3.To develop character, intelligence and good citizenship by teaching every man from early youth how to be a good neighbor and a loyal citizen.
4.To discover one’s inner Self by awakening within him that spark of divine genius which lies dormant in every man.
5. To teach man to think rather than to remember and repeat.
6. To realize that work done for the material world should be for man’s enoblement, and not for grinding his soul out in the gears of industrial machines.
7. To know that man is Mind, not body; that he is immortal Spirit, not mortal flesh, that he is good, not bad.
8. To judge the righteousness and religion of any man by what he does to his fellow man and not by his belief’s, doctrines, creeds, or dogmas.
Lao and Walter Russell added number 9 and 10, in essence:
9. To give a scientific course for the study of the application of the Spencer Code of Human Relations.
10. To combine science and philosophy in a unified teaching.
As Above So Below doesn't really apply here. It seems the Buddha might have been rather trying to describe the intermediary force, in this case "the finger" and how to use it as a tool rather than being used as a tool by the finger.
Drawings of two U.K. crop formations described in 1686 by Prof. Robert Plot. Plot examined multiple such formations and states that the soils "under all of them were much looser and dryer than ordinary, and the parts interspersed with a white hoar... much like that in mouldy bread, of a musty rancid smell, but to the tast[e] insipid."
--A Natural History of Staffordshire (1686)
This crop circle, from the same era, occurred in St. Gile's fields at University College. The cloud and trumpet-like diagram (upper left) illustrates Plot's hypothesis that crop circles "must needs be the effects of Lightning, exploded from the Clouds" ... in this case, the clouds "breaking first in a quadrangular, and after in a wider circular forme."
