Ezekiel was a great initiate whose heart was open to receiving his own inner truth, as Master Samael tells us; “The most characteristic features of those individuals prepared to receive cosmic consciousness, is that they see the world as Maya (illusion). They sense that the world as people see it is only an illusion and they search for the Great Reality, the spiritual, the truth, that which is beyond illusion.
In his fourth-floor lab at Harvard University, Michael Desai has created hundreds of identical worlds in order to watch evolution at work. Each of his meticulously controlled environments is home to a separate strain of baker’s yeast. Every 12 hours, Desai’s robot assistants pluck out the fastest-growing yeast in each world — selecting the fittest to live on — and discard the rest. Desai then monitors the strains as they evolve over the course of 500 generations. His experiment, which other scie
The great Fifth Hermetic Principle — the Principle of Rhythm — embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion; a to-and-from movement; a flow and inflow; a swing forward and backward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and a low-tide; between the two-poles manifest on the physical, mental or spiritual planes. The Principle of Rhythm is closely connected with the Principle of Polarity described in the preceding chapter. Rhythm manifests between the two poles established by the Principle of Polarity. This does not mean, however, that the pendulum of Rhythm swings to the extreme poles, for this rarely happens; in fact, it is difficult to establish the extreme polar opposites in the majority of cases. But the swing is ever "toward" first one pole and then the other.
There is always an action and reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking; manifested in all of the airs and phenomena of the Universe. Suns, worlds, men, animals, plants, minerals, forces, energy, mind and matter, yes, even Spirit, manifests this Principle. The Principle manifests in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life history of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man.
The region formerly known as the ‘Palestine region’ had not seen any conflict or bloodshed until the 19th century when a group of European colonisers known as the Zionists came to the region and started to colonise it.
An incredible discovery that was recently made in Russia threatens to shatter conventional theories about the history of the planet. On Mount Shoria in southern Siberia, researchers have found an absolutely massive wall of granite stones. Some of these gigantic granite stones are estimated to weigh more than 3,000 tons, and as you will see below, many of them were cut “with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners”.
Nothing of this magnitude has ever been discovered before. The largest stone found at the megalithic ruins at Baalbek, Lebanon is less than 1,500 tons. So how in the world did someone cut 3,000 ton granite stones with extreme precision, transport them up the side of a mountain and stack them 40 meters high? According to the commonly accepted version of history, it would be impossible for ancient humans with very limited technology to accomplish such a thing. Could it be possible that there is much more to the history of this planet than we are being taught?
Explains the sixth day of Genesis according to Kabbalah. Follows the lecture "Let the Waters Bring Forth." This lecture describes how the book of Genesis hides the work required by those who already created the soul (the initiates, the Masters). Discusses the Hebrew words in Genesis, the Divine Mother, Moses, Behemoth, Hasnamuss, sex, and much more.
"And Elah-Yam (the Sea Goddess) said: 'Let us bring Nephesh Chaiah (Living Souls) out unto the earth according to miynah (sex): cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth according to miynah (sex): and Yehi was so." - Genesis 1:24
This film is one of a three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections. His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry. He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients' lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events.
New age propaganda. Mark explains how the "New" Age Movement is a Religion that has been purposefully designed to stifle Right Action by manipulating people into believing that we change our reality by thought and emotion alone.
Mark breaks down 15 "feel-good," pseudo-spiritual "New" Age Deceptions which masquerade as spiritual teachings.
Even as the high-decibel criticism of students from Jawaharlal Nehru University and Hyderabad University continues unabated, the riverside celebration of “Hindu-India” curated by the self-anointed Sri Sri has been forgotten.
What if visualization, imagination, and art could change the future? Life imitates art, and life is now imitating science fiction.
Visualize this. Imagine a time in the future filled with “magical” technologies. Vertical farms, teleportation of 3-D printable food, and advanced biotechnology have eradicated hunger around the world. Age reversal has become possible, and human longevity has reached several hundred years. Automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and the new age of advanced self-replicating robots have freed humanity of the archaic idea of work. The word “job” has vanished from the human lexicon. Humans now spend their time in pursuit of higher realms of artistic, cognitive, and scientific exploration.
Imagine a future where we have become a multi-planetary species, with colonies on Mars, Titan, and Europa. Rumors of the first successful time-travel jump are circulating, and humanity finalizes its constitution of “Rules and Ethics of Time Travel.” Teleportation of people and goods has become common, and we are on the verge of becoming interstellar beings. We are projecting our consciousness into the cosmos. We are dancing among the stars.
In the Sumerian literature are the descriptions of The Me, “the holy laws of heaven and earth.” In one particular tale, the goddess, Inanna, decides to obtain for her followers The Me from her maternal grandfather, Enki. She does this by getting him thoroughly drunk, and skirting off with the goods. Enki apparently tries to stop her, but fails. At the same time, however, there is the very real possibility that Enki had determined all along to give Inanna The Me, but went through the pretence in order to avoid the wrath of the other gods and godesses, i.e., the Anunnaki. Regardless of his true motive, however, The Me are worthy of mention.
(2/9/9) Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noel Kramer, in their book, Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, describe The Me is the following terms:
"...to keep the cosmic entities and cultural phenomena operating continuously and harmoniously without conflict and confusion, they devised the me -- that set of universal and immutable rules and limits which had to be observed by god and man alike."
They include and/or involve (among other things):
kingship and priesthood
“the holy measuring rod and line”,
shepherdship, quiver, dagger and sword
loosening and binding of the hair
art of love making, art of prostitution, procreation
truth, the art of being forthright
slanderous and adorning speech
the art of song, resounding musical instruments
arts of power and treachery,
deceit, plundering of cities
lamentations and rejoicings of the heart
the art of kindness
crafts of the wood and copper worker
crafts of the scribe, builder and leather maker
perceptive ear, power of attention
holy purification rites
fear, dismay, consternation
kindling and putting out of fire
counseling, giving of judgments, making of decisions
the making of beer!
For what else could any civilization worthy of the name ask? Obviously, the Sumerian way is based on doing what is right and good -- as opposed to what is allowed by law and/or society.

Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara. Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet. The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”. The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.
WHICH great minds of the past can we turn to for guidance as the year of Our Lord 2014 beckons, with all its perils and opportunities? Well, if you flick through any basic history of Western thought, chances are that Augustine of Hippo will feature somewhere in the early chapters.
Indeed, he may well be the only religious philosopher who rates a mention. Yes, Erasmus sometimes squeezes in too—I should hope so. But Augustine's ideas powerfully influenced the scholastic philosophers of the Middle Ages, and they in turn laid the ground for European humanism to blaze forth about 500 years ago...at any rate, so conventional wisdom goes. And even now when people try to make an intellectual case for the legitimacy, in certain circumstances, of war, their first port of call is Augustine's elaborate "just war" theory. Augustine was a product of Roman society and education and his favourite poem was the "Aeneid", describing the foundation of Rome: on the face of things, a sophisticate who appealed to, and helped to shape, the sophisticated minds of later eras.
But one of today's public intellectuals, a contrarian conservative who is no friend of conventional religion, is telling people to turn to Augustine for exactly the opposite reason—because the Christian thinker lived in an age when civilisation was crumbling. A time when it was obvious that empires and political systems could shrink as well as expand—only to be replaced not by rival empires but by a long, uncertain fight between different forces such as tribalism, sectarianism, criminal or clan loyalties. In Foreign Policy, a magazine based in Washington, DC, Robert Kaplan argues that the great Latin Christian would recognise the problems that now plague his native North Africa—from the internal fissures of post-Qaddafi Libya to the street protests that threaten a liberal, cosmopolitan way of life enjoyed by some in Tunis. (Augustine was born in modern-day Algeria near the Tunisian border.) Nor would he be surprised to see Syria and the Levant as a field of bitter contest between cultures and religions.
Had there been no defence mechanism in operation to minimise the collateral damage of what could be termed as a civil war among the 37 trillion cells in a human body, diseases could have been much more widespread than they are today.
Scientists have now discovered how our cells fight off the effects of the rogue DNAs, called LINE-1 retrotransposons, in our cells.
The new finding gives scientists the first proof of a hypothesised defence strategy, said John Moran, a professor at the University of Michigan in the US.
"It is often hard to see what normally happens during an efficient process that occurs inside our cells," said Moran.
On one side of the battle are "regular" DNA, which provide day-to-day instructions for life.
On the other side are tiny bits of rogue DNA that hide like spies between genes in our own DNA.
From time-to-time, these rogue bits of DNA spin off a copy of themselves and "jump" to another DNA location, often causing harmful mutations when they land.
To discover the defence mechanism of the cells, the researchers focused on the defensive activity of an enzyme called APOBEC3A and showed that it can cause mutations within the LINE-1 retrotransposons as they jump to new locations.
This prevents subsequent invasions into other areas of DNA.
This defensive strike sends out a signal to other defence forces inside the cell, which neutralise the jumping gene and sweep away the destroyed copy. The findings could also lead to the development of new cancer drugs, said the study which appeared in the journal eLife.
