"The vatican 'appears' to approve of the film" This is the BIG worry Deano: Anything the Vatican approves of- such as historically, the "inquisition"; more recently, the "Fascists"; currently, the non-use of contraceptives by the poor of the world, single mothers..., aids victims....., has to be a cause for concern. It's one saving grace is that it is so removed f

Hi Cleo, As with most things...., there is an 'evolution' to religions. Firstly, there is the 'Avatar', the founder- usually, a GOOD guy. Then comes the 'insitution' of the religion. Initially according to the beliefs of the Founder..., but as time goes by innovations are introduced by the administrators to accomodate their own desires, lusts, perversions, until the original message is totally

Gene, Thanks for this further elucidation. There is another related lingual query that I've never found a satisfactory explanation for: How and when was the "Atlantic Ocean" given its name.[ you get pretty close to it in this response of yours here[ Atalantes ], but many more of these approximations exust on either side of the ocean Atlan, Aztlan etc on the Americas side; and Atalan

Hi Gene, I feel that your connections here are somewhat tenuous.., though not impossible. The Mexican terms- Nagual, Tona[ L ], go back at least to the Toltecs; and it is possible the current estimate of the period of Toltec civilisation is out by thousands of years. If there is a link- certainly a possibility- it most likely originated in an Atlantean civilisation, the aftermath of which spre

David, This is a splendid response. There is only one insight that I have reservations about: "No-one........ really loves this world". I would have to suggest, that this is very much dependent on 'attitude', on one's 'expectations'. While it is certainly true that perhaps most people feel a ''little dudded" by their sojourn down here, they are -almost to a man/woman- reluctan

No need to take umbrage here David ol' son, this is not a personal attack. What I am getting at is this tendency- in the title of this post; in so many posts to..., to bandy the term 'God" around with such gay abandon- like the way the word "love" is flaunted so recklessly in countless infantile pop songs. What I am getting at, is that to attempt to define this most mysterious

As the thrust of my post seems to have eluded you David, I will attempt to be more specific, and suggest: That for any mortal intelligence to presume to know the nature, intent, and purpose of the 'all-encompassing awareness' in which the whole of existence is contained...., is an act of arrogance so assinine as to defy comprehension. cheers, HoHo.

Hi Deano, I think what Poe was getting at here is that: When the "tonal" is separated from the "nagual"...., it just ain't "poetry". As always, HoHo.

David, I would suggest that all original musical themes- valid melody lines-, are in fact 'astral entities' that manifest in an earthly form in musical notation rather than a human form. This is not exactly 'channeling'- which suggests the intervention of a go-between; it is just that composers are receptive to the 'overtures' - pun intended- of these astral entities. cheers, Fiasco.

Richard, There was no offence intended here- my response I notice was written in 'synchronicity' with your response to jergat; it was just an observation and a wish to support what I thought was a legitimate post. I accept that the correct method of protest would be to e-mail web editor. with respect, HoHo.

There is really no need to apologise for this posting here Jergat. The subject of your post, while related, is clearly a new departure from the context of the original post- and a thoroughly intriguing concept. My observation is that the zealousness of certain moderators is approaching intimidation, and doing a great disservice to what has always been one of the most open and egalitarian messag

Hi Briffits, Nice to hear from you. I agree with most of what you say here, but I think you misconstrued my suggestion as to 'humourous posts'. I also am all for more humour, but it is a delicate operation on a board with respondents from all over the globe; as you suggest, humour varies widely and it can be colored by our state of mind at any given time...; I also deplore the use of those ridi

David, In this somewhat whimsical suggestion as to posting etiquette, I used the term 'view' advisedly as there are subtle distinctions between this and other candidates such as 'opinion', 'conviction'..., and the kind of personal experience you refer to here[ which remains exactly that 'personal experience' - for as any police officer will tell you: if you have five witnesses to the one event,

As a longtime observer of this message board I have noticed that it periodically undergoes a wave of PMT[ Post-Messageboard-Tension ]. I have not been able to determine a specific cycle- it is usually a little longer than the 28 day cycle that determines certain other periodic phenomena- but it undergoes a similar chemical accumulation of hostility and animosity.

Hi Gene, I missed this equally interesting dichotomy you have posted. I would suggest firstly, Faith is a more simple equation than Belief. Faith, has at its centre "Hope" . Hope can exist without faith, but Faith cannot exist without Hope; Hope is essentially what distinguishes faith from belief. Belief, is a little more complicated; there are DEGREES of Belief: There is 'acqui

A very pertinent post Jergat. Yes there is something going on just on the periphery of our collective vision. We are being drawn into, becoming a part of a grander world awareness; strangely, the GH message board seems to be a focal point in gathering people of like mind- I havn't come across another site with the same diverse talent of input[ its highpoint was perhaps a couple of years ago but
