Am personally unfamiliar with any of these works. And they all sound fascinating. Please let us on the GHMB know if there's anything else you'd wholeheartedly recommend, Michael, regardless of subject area. Before December slips away, let me express appreciation for your responsive AoM stewardship during a hectic month. Alohanui, Lew

Well, Stephen, I read it and instantly assumed that the author had made a simple mistake in including that everyday example to visually clarify the 601' length dimension. And, as you suggested, I 'translated' it as referencing the length of the playing area (100 yards=300 feet) of TWO football fields plus ONE football. That image helped me gain a clear picture of proportion. Nevertheless, this

I appreciate the succinct reply, Keri. Fingers crossed that your daughter will become immersed in Michael's book. It can only expand her awareness -- sooner or later. Based on the apparent meaning of that ancient Greek word, gnosis does refer to "a greater understanding of the universe" by inner openness to direct contact with the divine source underlying all nature. It can include

Aloha Keri, I personally view Michael's book as ideal for expanding young minds. And you know your daughter's consciousness better than any of us do. I have kept quiet while savouring December's fascinating threads and must applaud Michael's unusual communication clarity before seasonal mania further ensue. I also found his essay to be excellent. Finally, when your closing question included

Aloha Kristin, Scientists objectively state that they study phenomena representing only 4% of the universe's actual composition: Visible physical matter. It is therefore logical that a transmission mechanism might exist in the other 96% (of what we know is present based on gravitational effects). But those majority constituents cannot be detected by our instruments. This vast 'blind spot

Aloha Kristin, My explanation alternatively includes the psychic reservoir of human experiences that Karl G. Jung called "the collective unconscious". From that perspective, tribal ancestor memories could be involved and have more salience for some relative to others. Lew

Aloha Riann, Thanks for your dependably clear presentation. As a believer in both natural events and also in logically inexplicable magic, I have a broader view. And, your perspective is quite well explained, once again. As you know, I included several laudatory mentions of you and your crisp reasoning in the 4th Edition of GNOSIS Onward. And I agree with your erudite conclusions about Amenh

Aloha Don, It occurs to me that you might contribute considerably to the GHMB via your considerable writing skills. So.... Would you be willing to provide a pithy summary of sacred geometry? That might be helpful to many folks who lack previous experience with this wisdom. Spiritual symbolism is too large a topic to take on in my view. Your writings address this for those who are eager to p

Aloha again Don, I so appreciate the lucidity and clarity of your reply. You expressed a huge amount of wisdom in very few words. I so admire that talent. Yes, the universe is cyclical and fractal. My cosmology also perceives it as sentient. Regarding Plato, he wrote more than any other author about Pythagoras -- who studied with Egyptian priests and in every ancient world esoteric center a

Aloha Don, Excellent excerpt! The preface text asked: "Is there any evidence that the knowing of religion can be unified with the hoping observations of science? Can the doubting Thomas of science observe the substantiation of God?" I loved your answer, "Yes!", and share your deep optimism. How ancient would you estimate the understanding of sacred geometry to be? In pa

Aloha again Robert, For at least a decade now, individuals in arcane, indigenous traditions have reported a ripe transmission of cosmic wisdom that they have oddly described using the same phrase: “Crossing the Indigo Bridge”. This wisdom is simply impossible to explain in the linear, sequential flow of an English sentence. And most Westerners might quickly dismiss it as fuzzy-minded, ‘New Age

Aloha Robert, Before October slips away, I wish to acknowlede your courage in mentioning brujeria. The topic is one that my writings touch upon. And you are spot on in describing it as "a pretty distasteful topic". My own and my shamanic teacher's personal experiences certainly have confirmed this. Predatory animism is real and its power indeed is underestimated by most Westerner

Kristin, I just realized the assumptions underlying your question. To clarify: Sound is sound. It remains unchanged. And modern scientists do describe it precisely. But the ancient structure of how sound was structured and arranged into chords and scales has changed. This began after Ptolemy used his weighty reputation to argue against the 'irregular' format Pythagoras had propounded for c

Aloha Kristin, Yes, I am positive about this history. It's likely even on Wikipedia. On another topic, the human voice is a unique ‘instrument’ and able to create a continuous range of sound with proper training. For four centuries, from the early 1400’s until Beethoven’s death, European children were taught to sing in an extraordinary manner known as bel canto (“beautiful song”). That Ren

Aloha Robert, Kristin's comment was prescient, yet again. And I would trace the original roots of the Western mental construct of presumed 'reality' back to Ptolemy, the Roman born in Egypt nearly 2000 years ago. His followers gave ever-more-complicated explanations for new observations while clinging to their core assumption that Earth was the center of the entire universe. Their 'reality' w

Aloha Brad, Many topics you raised are unfamiliar to me. And my truth meter chimed Yes at the point you wrote: "The very Planet is Alive......and so named." In my own shamanic immersion, I learned of many strange ‘truths’ including the wisdom that every soul is an indestructible, immortal being of consciousness. The soul was said to survive the body’s demise like a driver exiting a

Thank you, Robert. Very cogently expressed -- and anything but long-winded. For one, I have come to respect that the dynamic universe is fractally brimming with the possibility of emergent life. To believe otherwise is akin to the insularity of medieval thinking that all of creation was Earth-centric. "Just two decades after discovering the first world beyond our solar system, astronomer

Aloha Brad, Thanks for the stimulation. Having traveled extensively in South America, which included traversing the enigmatic Lake Titicaca in a reed boat, I found your post to be of special interest. Three notions deserve mention.... First, I have never collected reliable, esoteric information on ET exploitation. Hence, I have no viewpoint on that possibility and am open-mindedly agnostic.

Aloha Michael, I personally have no point-of-view about past slave masters. My research only extended back about 20,000 years into details of the lost civilization. And it occurs to me that enslavement may be a distorted projection by 5th Age people onto the distant past. The collective unconscious is invariably dependable yet subject to interpretive errors.

I had been through your website thoroughly but gleaned only some of your reply. I truly appreciate your confirming the South African/American connection, which seemed inductively strong.

Aloha Kristin, The problem was that SIU's truth 'evolved' over time. So Glenn adjusted his public statements out of respect for the university's morphing positions and the value, as a dying man, that he placed upon personal integrity.

Glenn was embarrassed by having taken SIU at its written word and going public based upon that trust. At one point, his resumé referred to the Ph.D. as "Earned, To-Be-Awarded" or something like that. My guess is that Art Bell had that version. But I honestly don't know for sure. When Glenn realized that the university had ginned up even more degree hurdles, and could do so indefinit
