...IS IT FRAU MERKEL THAT'S IN TROUBLE? OR EUROPE?

But if the truth be told, I've been watching the political debates going on in Europe for some time, and if one is honest, it is mirroring, in some respects, the concerns being voiced by some segments in the American political scene, although being voiced with considerably less measured tones, and that is the immigration crisis that is unfolding across Europe, a crisis that is, to some extent, to be laid squarely at the feet of Chancellorin Merkel, and, if one digs more deeply into some internet rumors, squarely at the feet of Washington.

That's the implication of fascinating new research published last month in the British Journal of Psychology. Evolutionary psychologists Satoshi Kanazawa of the London School of Economics and Norman Li of Singapore Management University dig in to the question of what makes a life well-lived. While traditionally the domain of priests, philosophers and novelists, in recent years survey researchers, economists, biologists and scientists have been tackling that question. Kanazawa and Li theorize that the hunter-gatherer lifestyles of our ancient ancestors form the foundation for what make us happy now. "Situations and circumstances that would have increased our ancestors’ life satisfaction in the ancestral environment may still increase our life satisfaction today," they write.

There are no coincidences. The acacia tree is an often overlooked symbol that turns up prominently in Masonic imagery but perhaps because it is decorative, as opposed to the centrally placed square and compasses, the acacia has kept its sacred history very much in the background.
