They aren't just for televisions. You can get high-end camera equipment with radio controls so you can operate it from a distance.

You never get back a book when you 'lend' it to someone! I lost quite a few books by 'loan' and finally swore off the practice of giving my books away.

How is that different from 'extra-human origins'? The Neanderthals were in the genus homo, but were a different species. Extra-human. Other than human.

Part of the article is available online at NewScientist.com: This will certainly make the 'hidden aristocracy' crowd like Nicholas de Vere happy. It will be easy to spin this as 'scientific confirmation' of the extra-human origins of this hidden bloodline he claims is behind so much in ancient history.

Do you want larger numbers of pixels or colors? The largest full color image I can find doesn't show its 'resolution' (pixels per inch) when saved to disk so I don't know how sharp it is pixel-wise. On the other hand, there is a very high pixel count (2000x1951 pixels) black & white version available at: And there are some extreme closeups of certain parts of the painting, as well, incl

The story you are repeating comes originally from Plato's Symposium dialogue. It's one of the discourses given on the origin and nature of 'love' (eros). In the original, though, the pairs were not excusively male and female. Some were, but some were also male-male and female-female. Aristophanes professed to open another vein of discourse; he had a mind to praise Love in another way, unlike th

The temple of Angor Wat in Cambodia aligns to the constellation of Draco as it was in 10500 BC much like the Pyramid complex at Giza aligns to Orion in 10500 BC.

Years and years ago I ran a dialup BBS. Discussing these issues with fellow sysops I have a vague recollection that there was something called a 'compilation copyright' (not necessarily a legal entity but a convention in legalese) where you could claim the right to the aggregate of messages posted on your board BUT not superceding the rights of individual posters to their work.

All of these questions of the brain in relation to consciousness are extensively covered in Tertium Organum by Peter Ouspensky. Have you ever read it? Even though it's now nearly a century old it's still quite relevant. --- If we look at the brain from the standpoint of inner life, the brain will be part of the 'world', i. e. a part of the outer world lying outside mental life.

You would do better to look for personal meanings before digging into abstract mystical symbolism. A simple number can stand for all sorts of things, including an address or a date.

You're totally out of the blue. :) The Baghdad battery is much to large to be worn like a phylactery. If it wasn't used for electroplating, it was probably used for pain relief. It's been known for some time that a slight electric current interferes with pain. Ancients could well have discovered this as well as electroplating.

If it's what I think it is, you've been hoaxed. There was an image posted in this forum last year (or was it early this year?) that seemed to show a satellite image of concentric circles in/under the ice cap. I can't find it now, but it was pretty clearly photoshopped. The Antarctic ice cap is miles thick. Nothing like a city wall would show through it.

"Annunaki" means 'those who came down from heaven to earth' and 'Nephilim' is essentially a translation of that term into Hebrew. Trying to derive Sumerian words from Latin doesn't do much for your credibility.

Why do I have to 'label' my views of the origins of anything? (The Universe, Mankind, small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri, Pangalacticic Gargleblasters, etc?) Is there some law that you have to belong to a defined opinion group? What is the harm is saying I DON'T KNOW when I don't know?

No, we are not happy because scientists are playing word-games. To an average person a 'theory' is something tentative and unconfirmed. To a scientist a theory is an established 'fact'. As Chapo observes a few posts above here, Evolution should properly be called a the Hypothesis of Evolution in science jargon because it is not proven. It's just an idea that cannot yet be tested and proven to wor

The actual attributed quote is "I have studied the matter , you sir, have not." -- but it cannot be traced back to an 'original' source from the time. There is no proof that Newton and Halley actually had this particular exchange.

Yes, even 'orthodox' scientists -- and philosophers of science -- have been trying to pin down the exact nature of 'proof' for some time now. One useful concept is 'disconfirmation' where you try to disprove your theory. Deliberately seeking ways in which your theory cannot work and testing them helps to get around this 'selection bias' that leads people to see cause & effect in simple associ
