Investigating Strange Materials

You have a piece of material.  It's not evident what it is or where it came from.  What do you do?
Physicist Dr. Halputhoff discusses the process.

To the Stars Academy's ADAM Research Project, an acronym for Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials, focuses on the collection and scientific evaluation of material samples obtained through reliable reports of advanced aerospace vehicles of unknown origin.

Atlantis

Now that's a subject that's been around for a long, long, time.  If you've ever wondered if such an ancient (way, way, back) civilization existed (and you give Plato the benefit of a doubt that he's not lying) then this short clip with Graham Hancock is for you.  He sums up the whole subject and brings in some relatively new information concerning the period 11,600 years ago.




Hancock is a world class explorer, in so many ways.  He charges into the thoughts that go bump in the night for many.

ASHALI

What if those old stories are true?  Well, in the case of "The Magic Word" it is.  There IS a word, which when used properly, can result in almost magical results.  Really.  Click here for an earlier post that explores this magical word.

What Do You Want?

The old question:  Do you want to feel good?  There are two answers, yes or no.  There is not an answer "yes...but..."  That's a no.  However, the "but" can be a situation or process that is so familiar, so comfortable, that its absence could be scary.  Oh well, enough of that.  This video is priceless.

It's More Than a Birthday...

Is there a fourth of July in Great Britain?  Of course there is.  They just don't celebrate it.

 We do, and for good reason.  The Declaration presented a framework for the people, the WE of the Constitution, to establish a government that protects and furthers the self-evident Truths.  Nothing like this had ever existed in the history of Mankind.  It was to be the great experiment, and, if successful, perhaps the blueprint for prosperity, peace, and the pursuit of happiness for anyone and everyone.
But that was long ago.  Our wildly successful Republic is evinced by the loony excesses that safety, prosperity, and freedom allow.  What would the Founders think if they could walk the "mean streets" of San Francisco, or Shreveport?  Probably a big  "Whoa!  Where'd this come from?"  Freedom is where it comes from.  Freedom to decide doesn't mean that people always make "good" choices in what they think/say/do.  And, since we're products of physics, for every cause there is an effect, and every effect has a cause.  Misery comes from engaging in the same "causal" action but expecting a different result or "effect."  But that's what it's all about.  And it's why so many do what they think is what they must do to somehow get to the USA.  Just stepping foot in this magical land would somehow improve their life.  Well, yes  A generous people (citizens of a Republic tend to be very generous) WE have many, many, ways for people to visit, work, and, yes, become a full fledged citizen.  It's the Rule of Law, and not the whim of the Despot that defines us.  And most folks around the globe get it.

July 4, 1776 was a time and place where a remarkable gathering of wise, albeit totally human, souls came together to imagine (IMAGINE!) the best way for a people to govern themselves as a society.  Fortunate.  Yes indeed, we are fortunate.  And, even though the wild success of the great experiment can create problems unprecedented (you have to have prosperity and freedom to find new problems), the USA has the means to continue as the haven and launch pad for the freedom of Mankind.

John Stossel puts it very well:




Now, let the fun, festivities, and fireworks begin!

Speaking with things that go bump in the night...

I'm convinced that we're in an age of discovery unlike any other in known history.  There is a "shift" in consciousness - a move upward on an evolutionary spiral - that is akin to the rising tide lifting all boats.  Some folks may speak of their personal moments, many keep quiet (it's personal), and some attract others who have similar experiences, talents, skills, abilities, interests...you know the list.

Three people who came together, Rhonda Hull, Dwight Hull and Dan Baldwin, pooled their talents and interests (in their case, southwest U.S. history) and are sharing their findings in a recently released book, Speaking With the Spirits of the Old Southwest (yes, the title says it all.)

But, besides being an intriguing book, it has a nifty trailer.  Yep, the book has a "movie" trailer.
UPDATE:  Can only be seen on YouTube.  Click the link.




And a nice touch are links to the EVP's - electronic voice phenomena - which capture bits of their conversations.  For those who grasp such talents - intuitives and pendulum - the techniques used by the trio are worthy of emulation.  It's just...well, take a read.

Note:  For those of you in the Shreveport-Bossier City area, Dan Baldwin will have a book signing at the Shreveport Barnes & Noble on July 13.  Yep, that's a Friday.
