How to Read Your Own Birth Chart - Astrology. The most important thing to remember while interpreting any birth chart is: synthesis. The whole chart must be taken as a whole.

A natal chart abounds with bits and pieces of information about an individual. Each separate bit must be synthesized into one whole picture of the person. What we mean is that you cannot take one piece of the chart (for example, Mercury in Sagittarius) and decide that it defines the entire person. If you do that, you will, undoubtedly, be in error.

The point, again (and this point will be repeated often), is that the entire chart must be blended together. It's as if each of us is a mosaic, made up of tiny individual images. Interpreting Planets in the Signs Look at the birth chart and take note of what sign and house each planet is in. Now you can look up the "Chart Interpretations" of each of your planets and Rising sign. The zodiac sign will show how the planet is manifested. Incorporating the Astrological Houses Planet = What? Signs = the way you do it = “How” Oahspe index. Oahspe, the product of automatic writing by a 19th century dentist named John Ballou Newbrough, is a hallucinogenic reworking of cosmology and ancient history. Written in a pseudo-archaic style, the narrative is told from two viewpoints: that of heaven and earth.

For a large part of the book there are parallel texts from each point of view on the top and bottom of the page (hence the page numbers 'a' and 'b'). There are many moving, lucid passages, dealing with ethical and spiritual topics; however these must be sought out. For a large part, Oahspe remains a sealed book. It uses a private vocabulary which is only partially explained; and describes events of mysterious significance. There are hundreds of pages about the deeds of a vast array of Gods and Goddesses who roam the universe in enormous vessels. This etext of Oahspe has been brought into conformance with the contents of the third edition of 1912. --J.B. Synchronicity. Synchronicity Gears of Time and Illusion Law of Attraction and Manifestation - Meaningful Coincidences - "The Secret" How the Hologram Works To understand how synchronicities work is the understand the nature of reality. It is in fact a computer generated hologram in which characters and events created are programmed experiences that on this level of consciousness are perceived of as real.

It's all science and math set in linear time to experience emotions. Synchronicities bring people to Crystalinks ... which takes them on all sorts of journeys into awareness. Synchronicities are preprogrammed experiences that occur when one's DNA is programmed for a specific event in time. ... Today's journeys seem to be all about healing and energy. Synchronicities are patterns that repeat in time. Now more than ever, synchronicities are people, places or events that your soul attracts into your life to help you evolve to higher consciousness or to place emphasis on something going on in your life. Dr. Hathors Archives. The Book of Enoch Index. Contents Start Reading Page Index Text [Zipped] The Book of Enoch, written during the second century B.C.E., is one of the most important non-canonical apocryphal works, and probably had a huge influence on early Christian, particularly Gnostic, beliefs. Filled with hallucinatory visions of heaven and hell, angels and devils, Enoch introduced concepts such as fallen angels, the appearance of a Messiah, Resurrection, a Final Judgement, and a Heavenly Kingdom on Earth.

Interspersed with this material are quasi-scientific digressions on calendrical systems, geography, cosmology, astronomy, and meteorology. This etext has been prepared specially for sacred-texts, and is a great improvement over other versions on the Internet, with the introduction, correct verse numbering, page numbers from the 1917 edition, and intact critical apparatus.

Nephilim. Etymology[edit] In the Hebrew Bible[edit] The term "Nephilim" occurs just twice in the Hebrew Bible, both in the Torah.

The first is Genesis 6:1–4, immediately before the story of Noah's ark. The second is Numbers 13:32–33, where ten of the Twelve Spies report that they have seen fearsome giants in Canaan. The nature of the nephilim is complicated by the ambiguity of Genesis 6:4, which leaves it unclear whether they are the "sons of God" or their offspring who are the "mighty men of old, men of renown". Interpretations[edit] There are effectively two views[15] regarding the identity of the nephilim, which follow on from alternative views about the identity of the sons of God (Bənê hāʼĕlōhîm): Fallen angels[edit] Main article: Fallen angel Some Christian commentators have argued against this view,[21][22] citing Jesus's statement that angels do not marry.[23] Others believe that Jesus was only referring to angels in heaven.[24] Second Temple Judaism[edit] Descendants of Seth and Cain[edit]

Biology of Belief - by Bruce Lipton (full documentary) Anti-Realism. Anti-realism in philosophy[edit] Michael Dummett[edit] , without being able to produce any term of which holds. Dummett argues that the intuitionistic notion of truth lies at the bottom of various classical forms of anti-realism. Dummett's writings on anti-realism also draw heavily on the later writings of Wittgenstein concerning meaning and rule following. Anti-realism in the sense that Dummett uses the term is also often called semantic anti-realism. Hilary Putnam's "internal realism"[edit] Despite being at one time a defender of metaphysical realism, Hilary Putnam later abandoned this view in favor of a position he termed "internal realism". Precursors[edit] Doubts about the possibility of definite truth have been expressed since ancient times, for instance in the skepticism of Pyrrho. [edit] Anti-realist arguments[edit] Anti-realism in science[edit] Anti-realism in mathematics[edit] The "epistemic argument" against Platonism has been made by Paul Benacerraf and Hartry Field.

Cryptosporidiosis in Lizards by: Marcia McGuiness © Golden Gate Geckos 2009 Purpose: This provides some facts and common myths about the parasite Cryptosporidium, aka “crypto”, in a comprehensive article targeted for the average lizard keeper, hobbyist, and breeder. Description: There are eleven strains of Cryptosporidium, which is a mutant form of Coccidia.

Most reptiles are considered susceptible to Cryptosporidiosis, especially snakes. Crypto affects snakes and lizards differently, and is much more difficult to diagnose in lizards because the symptoms are more elusive than in snakes. Contagion and Transmission: Some experts claim that ALL lizards have Cryptosporidium, but this is completely unfounded and false.

When uninfected reptiles share water and food bowls with infected animals, they can ingest crypto oocysts. Clinical Symptoms: Many reptiles are asymptomatic (no symptoms) but are known to be carriers of Cryptosporidium. The progressive symptoms of Crypto in lizards are: - lethargy. Hephaestus. As a smithing god, Hephaestus made all the weapons of the gods in Olympus. He served as the blacksmith of the gods, and was worshipped in the manufacturing and industrial centers of Greece, particularly Athens. The cult of Hephaestus was based in Lemnos.[2] Hephaestus' symbols are a smith's hammer, anvil, and a pair of tongs. Etymology[edit] Hephaestus, is probably associated with the Linear B (Mycenean Greek) inscription 𐀀𐀞𐀂𐀴𐀍, A-pa-i-ti-jo, found at Knossos; the inscription indirectly attests his worship at that time because it is believed that it reads the theophoric name Haphaistios or Haphaistion.[3][4][5] The name of the god in Greek (Hēphaistos), has a root which can be observed in names of places, of Pre-Greek origin.[6] Epithets[edit] Hephaestus is given many epithets.

The meaning of each epithet is:[7] Mythology[edit] The craft of Hephaestus[edit] Parentage[edit] Fall from Olympus[edit] Return to Olympus[edit] There are paintings here – Dionysus bringing Hephaestus up to heaven. 73 Mindblowing Terence McKenna QuotesEndAllDisease. 4 Interesting Things About the Third Eye Everyone Should Know. By: Scott Thill Located in nearly the direct center of the brain, the tiny pinecone-shaped pineal gland, which habitually secretes the wondrous neurohormone melatonin while we sleep at night, was once thought to be a vestigial leftover from a lower evolutionary state. Indeed, according to recent research, we could be increasing our chances of contracting chronic illnesses like cancer by unnecessarily bathing its evenings in artificial light, working night shifts or staying up too late. By disrupting the pineal gland and melatonin’s chronobiological connection to Earth’s rotational 24-hour light and dark cycle, known as its circadian rhythm, we’re possibly opening the doors not to perception, but to disease and disorder.

A recently published study from Vanderbilt University has found associations between circadian disruption and heart disease, diabetes and obesity. 1. That description seems apt, given the astronomical power we have achieved in a few million yeas of evolution. EASTERN PHILOSOPHY - The Buddha. It’s good to see the Buddha’s discoveries linked to”philosophy” rather than “religion”. One thinks of “religion” as “the belief in god or a group of gods”, or secondly: “an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies and rules used to worship a god or group of gods.” (Thank you, Merriam-Webster) The practice of Buddhism is none of these things. Only the third dictionary definition of “religion” might apply: “An interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or a group”.

I’m not familiar with Sartre. Maybe I’ll go check it out. I had a friend way back when, who was getting her PhD in philosophy. It had a lot of math and didn’t seem to focus on any of the really big questions. It's good to see the Buddha's discoveries linked to"philosophy" rather than "religion". This is your brain on religion: Uncovering the science of belief. As far as I’m concerned, the most interesting question about religion isn’t whether God exists but why so many people are religious. There are around 10,000 different religions, each of which is convinced that there’s only one Truth and that they alone possess it.

Hating people with a different faith seems to be part of belief. Around the year 1500, the church reformer Martin Luther described Jews as a “brood of vipers.” Over the centuries the Christian hatred of the Jews led to pogroms and ultimately made the Holocaust possible. In 1947, over a million people were slaughtered when British India was partitioned into India for the Hindus and Pakistan for the Muslims.

Almost 64 percent of the world’s population is Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, or Hindu. In 2006, during a symposium in Istanbul, Herman van Praag, a professor of biological psychiatry, taking his lead from the 95 percent of believers in the United States, tried to convince me that atheism was an “anomaly.” ANUNNAKI CHRONOLOGY, SITCHIN’S TIMELINE 4.5 BILLION YEARS AGO TO 311B.C: In Print & Read Aloud by the Lessins.

Part of the sequence: Rationality and Philosophy We have already examined one source of our intuitions: attribute substitution heuristics. Today we examine a second source of our intuitions: biological evolution. Evolutionary psychology Evolutionary psychology1 has been covered on Less Wrong many times before, but let's review anyway. Lions walk on four legs and hunt for food. Certain evolved psychological mechanisms in humans are part of what makes us like each other and not like lions, skunks, and spiders. These mechanisms evolved to solve specific adaptive problems. An an example of evolutionary psychology at work, consider the 'hunter-gatherer hypothesis' that men evolved psychological mechanisms to aid in hunting, while women evolved psychological mechanisms to aid in gathering.6 This hypothesis leads to a list of bold predictions.

And as it turns out, all these predictions are correct.7 (And no, evolutionary psychologists do not only offer 'postdictions' or 'just so' stories. Notes. Nassim Haramein - Sacred Geometry and Unified Fields. Physicist Nassim Haramein presents new concepts explaining how we are all interconnected and can access infinite knowledge. “My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know it exists.”

-Nikola Tesla As early as 9 years old, Nassim was already developing the basis for a unified hyper-dimensional theory of matter and energy, which he eventually called the “Holofractographic Universe.” Nassim Haramein was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1962. Combining this knowledge with a keen observation of the behavior of nature, he discovered a specific geometric array that he found to be fundamental to creation, and the foundation for his Unified Field Theory emerged. This groundbreaking theory has now been delivered to the scientific community through peer-reviewed papers and presentations at international physics conferences. In addition to his scientific papers, Mr. The Neurobiology of Paradise.
