Hi Don Ooo, nice work you have there. And a bloody marvellous introduction before the book-excerpt, kind of summing up in the last paragraph what the journey uncovers when such a journey is begun, but somewhat overstepping the mark in the first paragraph. You see, what we are left with from ancient sources is the results of their own experiences with “...life, our journeys, and our purpose, th

"The particular point I’d start with is if you included mention of the little gnomon figurine at Gobekli Tepe in your book on GT. If you mean the stylized H on the Gobekli Tepe pillar..." No, I mean the actual gnomon/figurine found in a grotto at GT. I mentioned it in an above post somewhere...several niches in the wall of the grotto, and the figurine shaped like a tear drop with

Hi Laird Hmm…I pondered for a few moments whether indicating specific things needing answers would be worth it, and decided I’d reread the posts in the topic, which had me ‘switch view’ to lay the entirety out and save it for going through later. I had figured I would begin with a comment toward the end and depending on your response, have other points ready or not worry about it. The particul

Hi Laird You're not that good a magician. In trying to keep saying 'look over here', all we'll do is go round in circles with me saying 'yeah, but I see what you are fumbling with' and again it will be 'look over here'. And yet, you believe I'll still be sucked in to finally say 'Oh! You got me. I didn't see that coming at all.' I've already addressed everything you wrote in your above post

Laird - "The commonly-shared Dogon and Buddhist outlook is that they learned these things from someone who thoroughly understood them. So the issue of how could they have perceived these things doesn't come into play...The whole idea when framing a metaphor is that, to be effective, it needs to resonate with the experience of the target audience." I know those are separate quotes to

Nice write-up there, Laird. Then scale and time are intertwined when substance is either observed or observing. I had a go at that kind of thing in Time, Distance and Angle some time back, and got so far with trying to find what others thought of it but only got so far in the interactions with others. I guess one aspect of that somewhat failure is the observations others make of what was being

Ah sheesh Susan but you can be entirely funny sometimes. I guess you forget most religions and beliefs which have reincarnation firmly implanted in what they observe and believe. Sure, you can ignore them, and 'choose to not believe something' but you are in a certain group of folk who need that for your own grasp on the reality you construct within and without you. I reckon you could have

Yeah, some folk do like to toss the book away once it is understood, as there is always another way of perceiving what the message or instructions are, and then translating those into what an individual can do, rather than a group or some other individual. Much like disabled folk who play sports a little bit differently than able-bodied folk...who says you need legs to play tennis? One arm is eno

Hi Sam And isn't it the greatest thing to have two individuals thinking along the same lines but with differing amounts of knowledge and skills, and collaborating on teasing something perfect from parts of perfection that neither one could find by themselves. But I don't think reality is infinitely complex...don't forget, it is all our own perspective due to the lives we live and what we id

"I fall in a class that Gershom Scholem terms a "Pure Mystic" - someone for whom esoteric knowledge presents itself as it is needed." I hear you, Laird. I'd say quite a few folk also get this...it's the wonder of how we have traipsed around certain things for lengths of time until something quite out of the ordinary in being ordinary trips us up. Dreams do offer ways of

HEyyas I read this and the below and wonder where actual zero has become confused with a 0 used in counting? Zero is nothing, zip, naddah, nought, while 10 is not 1 + 0 to become 10, as you rightly point out Tom...it is 9 + 1 = 10, where the 0 does not at all suggest nothing but an addition to a number to denote 'more'. Roman numerals indeed uses x to denote ten as one of the symbols in th

Laird I have no doubt you have a wealth of knowledge and experience in you, and are able to express those in ways which others are drawn to because you have answers to questions others seek or never knew they needed. Of course, that wealth is constantly changing in its small parts revolving around the greater part, that being your function and purpose, which mainly revolve around anyone living

Hmm...so, what's your meditation ability like? Ever been down into that subtle world full of energy yourself? I think it is a hard thing to understand, which is why there are so many analogies about describing it, besides what physics offers. A yu seed, hey...seems a little lacking, even though I don't know what the Dogon do with it.

Hmm...very good then. Having amounts as scales of one to another or many, identified by the position of 1 in front of a 0 and how many 0s are behind the 1, does offer the consequence of squaring and cubing numbers in a sequence of numbers which only use 1 and 0 where their first combination is understood as being a whole number. Sure, 1 is a whole number but it cannot progress beyond itself wh

Ah, it's not all a matter of leaving our marks in history in some way, Ron...more-so leaving marks on ourselves like growth rings of trees when they are cut down and opened up. We don't get to truly open up in ways that most folk find comfortable...they prefer to steer clear of some topics so they don't get to really look inside themselves and see the rings composing them.

Hi Laird Oh, I'm very curious so don't get me wrong in my posts. The quite lengthy post offered up the acceptance that those who successfully describe existence have done so with a different kind of consciousness that allows for some kind of immersion into things that most folk will never know let alone believe. Would that include some form of thought projection where substance and distance be

In your opening paragraph, you state '...French anthropologists who spent three decades visiting the tribe...' found 50 years as a substance while Dogon understanding had 60 years as a substance for their understanding about Sirius albeit Sirius A and B playing together. Now, French anthropologists came quite a long time after Dogon beginnings, so why did Dogon understanding suddenly change a

Hmm...very good then. This is an extract from The Theory of Celestial Influence by Rodney Collin: “Introduction In every age men have tried to assemble all the knowledge and experience of their day into a single whole which would explain their relation to the universe and their possibilities in it. In the ordinary way they could never succeed. For the unity of things is not realisable by t

There appears to be quite the few who have a similar theory/belief as you, where some alien culture ended up here and had to stay for one reason or another. The belief is quite ancient though, isn't it, which really begs the question: Did all who have the same wonder hear about the first time it was wondered and expand on the tale? Or is it something inherent to our physical make-up? DNA

Is that line of thinking much different to the proposed layout of Atlantis? A central island with a mountain the gods reside on or descend to, and several concentric rings of land and water...seems like a comparison to an atom with its 7 shells of electrons around the nucleus. The image you show could be one of many that show similar things, especially Australian Aborigines and their art wo

Hi Laird A bit of a stretch, that...equating such time scales to AE evaluation and understanding, especially on such small scales as Planck-lengths, and then scaling that out to universal-sizes expanding from spent-time and perceived as distances of space-time from the first moment to the last (?).

Yay Louisa! How great does it feel to actually write that? I mean, it is a great leap into such things as 'alternative understanding' that folk are not sure what to do about, and it really only comes down to putting your thoughts beyond your head in order to actually see what you think, and then see what others think about your thoughts, and then -damn it - what you think about their thoughts.

Of course, my interaction in Inner Space is because I am trying to get a little bit deeper with a Mystery over on that board - besides what I try in life - so the 3 are tied in together, yeah? But what I do and how I go about writing about it is oft times incongruent with what other folks do and what they estimate about the same or similar things. And yet what I have done over on that board and w

Sure is, Tom. That very act of discovering something new, whether as one's addition to the sum of their life or as an addition toward one's species and their accountable qualities, is the progress in what can be achieved in a life time...the individual's and the species' lifetime. And we sure aren't the same kind of folk we were a hundred thousand years ago, nor ten thousand or a hundred. Folk
