Hi Tom Please *again* see this message: <; "The problem with this... is that the posts are short presentations without much room for discussion." Please remember this is a discussion board, so if you want to make these kinds of posts, put them on your blog. Otherwise please try to present your ideas in a format that is conducive to discussion.

Steven Pressfield's Gates of Fire is one of the best epic war novels I've ever read, and is about the Battle at Thermopylae. Well worth the read if you've not already done so.

QuoteRule Britannia was originally written as part of open royal revolt against King George II rather than as a patriotic anthem, a new Oxford University study has suggested. Interesting.

QuoteAncient Roman concrete has withstood the attack by elements for over 2,000 years. The basic construction techniques of the Romans must be better than those of modern practice as judged by comparing the products. Can we learn from the Romans in some way to improve our concrete? Dusty ancient history books taught us that Roman concrete consisted of just three parts: a pasty, hydrate lime; poz

We're having trouble drawing a line in the sand between Mysteries and the History boards. Mysteries deals with origins, mythology, and pre-history. History board is for general and orthodox historical discussion. So we drew line at the Classic Greek era for the beginning of orthodox history, but there are many general historical subjects that stem from further back. So we're proposing to chan

Interesting idea. But lets speculate further into a hypothetical future: So lets say some years later we have major global economic collapse. The entire infrastructure of government collapses under its own weight, and everything starts to get rebuilt from the ground up, in a decentralised manner. In that scenario, the old military industrial complexes around the world don't have money t

Hi Greg The Zen Question is: QuoteHow do we stop gangsters from taking over without having gangsters in power to stop them? This is fundamentally the most important concept that needs to be addressed before people could really ever try and live without the top-down control of the state, otherwise every attempt at ground-up, self-organisation will be thwarted the moment it frees itself from

77. Somalia
Hi Greg One question I wanted to bring up in our interview that I forgot to ask: What about Somalia? Here we have an example of a country in the modern age that lived without a government for something like 15 to 20 years. But rather than flourish without the oppression and cack-handedness of the State, instead there have been 20 years of turmoil and suffering where before that under Si

To all the posters in this thread, please cease with the personal bickering and stay on topic. The thread is for discussion of Emery and elongated skulls, not for mud slinging and airing dirty laundry.

What did the synchronicity do for you? Affirmation of something? Just a reminder of the magic? What purpose did it serve, if any?

Hi Simon I gather you're very 'in to' psilocybin. Mind if I ask why? Why psilocybin over mescaline, or LSD, or LSA, or DMT&harmaline, or any other psychedelic? What's it about the mushrooms that are particularly special to you? And have you experience amanita muscaria, and if so how do you find it? To answer your question about the impression, certainly a day I spent in the jung

Everybody please cease and desist posting in this sub-thread. It has completely derailed from discussion of 'Life in the Higher Ages' and has become personalisations and bickering. Please stop. Do not reply to this message. Take it to email if you have an issue. Luke

It's like when a bunch of celebrities died at the same time; a kind of synchronicity happening at a macro scale. South Park even made an episode about it:

Mark Twain noticed that when he sent people letters, a letter from the other person would be miraculously sent at the same time as his, and would "cross each other" in the postal system. For this reason he would postpone writing to people when he had the urge, to avoid the confusion. QuoteWe are always talking about letters "crossing" each other, for that is one of the very

A direct quote from Darwin after seeing Wallace's paper, and before submitting his own and entering his place in the history books: QuoteI never saw a more striking coincidence. if Wallace had my M.S. sketch written out in 1842 he could not have made a better short abstract! Even his terms now stand as Heads of my Chapters. Source:

A lot of people who lift the veil to peer past and look deeply into synchronicity (or madness, as some would posit) come to the conclusion that there's a kind of divine order and organising principle at play in the Universe. A kind of infinitely high intelligence that feeds us all the things we have in our lives in order to enable our personal evolution - aka "everything happens for a reaso
