Waking Times ~ The 500 Year Old Map that Shatters the Official History of the Human Race. This post goes right along with some themes I’ve shared lately, including: other mysterious explanations for climate change; how this planet is fully capable of reorganizing her surface area such that ley lines co-opted by Masonic Temples, wifi towers and other mis-uses of their power will shift, creating new flows and intersections of power where people have healed the land; embracing The Great Uncertainty (also known as The Mystery), because truly, we do not know all the answers; my contention that squelching research in Antarctica was one of the real reasons for the government shut down charade of 2013; and an old theme about humanity having experienced a devolution rather than an evolution.

If one considers that those in power kept expressing in the 60’s a desire for a new Dark Ages, well, proceed with awareness. “History” is simply the stories the conquerors permit their minions to tell about themselves.

The Spanish Empire had been crumbling for a century, and there was a ferocious debate within the US over whether America should replace it as a European-style imperial power, or if as a democracy the US should instead liberate peoples from imperialism. The debate centered on Cuba: pro-imperialists wanted to purchase or annex it from Spain (pre-1861, the plan was to turn it into a new slave state); anti-imperialists wanted to support Cuban independence. In 1898, Cuban activists launched a war of independence from Spain, and the US intervened on their side. Historical European martial arts. Historical European martial arts (HEMA) refers to martial arts of European origin, particularly using arts formerly practised, but having since died out or evolved into very different forms.

Historical European martial arts

While there is limited surviving documentation of the martial arts of Classical Antiquity (such as Ancient Greek wrestling or Gladiatorial combat), surviving dedicated technical treatises or combat manuals date to the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. For this reason, the focus of HEMA is de facto on the period of the half-millennium of ca. 1300 to 1800, with a German and an Italian school flowering in the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries), followed by Spanish, French, English and Scottish schools of fencing in the modern period (17th and 18th centuries).

The term Western martial arts (WMA) is sometimes used in this wider sense including modern and traditional disciplines. Early history (before 1350)[edit] Fol. 4v of the I.33 Renaissance[edit]
