Your replies have surely steered me on a new path in my own life's journey.
(By the way my first ever pseudonym for the Internet was Journeyer)
I am a big believer that nothing in life happens by chance.
Things happen for a reason, people we meet, the things that happen to us expected or unexpected can be interpreted (ie. meaningfully understood) if we are conscious enough to realise them as they happen, or later on through contemplation and reflection.
I cannot comment on all your interests as I am unfamiliar with most of them.
You certainly have branched out a lot haven’t you busy Cleo, I hope you’re actively using this knowledge and not just hoarding it as most of us do.
I too share an interest in the New Testament and early Christian texts.
May we soon return to the knowledge and beliefs of the Gnostic Christians, forever leaving behind the deceptive and thoroughly corrupt literalist Christian dogma.
Ancient Egypt is definitely a subject that captures the imagination of us all.
I believe that the Ancient Greeks who gave so much to the world owe a great debt to the Ancient Egyptians.
But thank the All that it was these Greeks who took, developed, expanded and spread this ancient knowledge to the masses for the first time. Just look at the results, a time unequalled in our recorded history, the Golden Age of Greece.
Which goes without saying, Ancient Greece is one of my favourite subjects.
Quest for the Lost Civilisation really tripped me out when I first read it.
I remember seeing the cover in a book store and as I was reading the back of it, I knew I was going to buy it. I devoured that book in record time. I strongly believe that a previous civilisation(s) definitely existed and that some catastrophe destroyed them as hinted in myths from all corners of the world.
It’s times like these you start wishing you had a time machine.
