WikiPrimaryHistory? This page began life as a rather tongue in cheek response to the new English National Curriculum for History, published for consultation on 7th February 2013. The sustained focus in the key stage one and two programmes of study on factual knowledge to be acquired has caused something of stir amongst teachers, teacher educators and academics. The thinking behind the approach can be found in this recent speech. Concerns have been raised about the age-appropriateness of some of the material and the sheer quantity of stuff to be covered. With the idea of crowdsourcing the curriculum in mind, I thought it would be useful and instructive to link the new content to explanatory material, with Wikipedia being an obvious source.

Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret - Morals and Dogma by Albert Pike MORALS and DOGMA by: Albert Pike Index Previous p. 839 XXXII. SUBLIME PRINCE OF THE ROYAL SECRET [Master of Royal Secret.] THE Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics: it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry.

Daoist Perspectives on Chinese and Global Environmental Management The Culture Mandala, 4 no. 2, November 2001. Copyright © Rosita Dellios 2001 Daoist Perspectives on Chinese and Global Environmental Management(1) by Rosita Dellios The Yin and Yang of Hardship and Hope Taoism - Ageless Wisdom for a Modern World - Part 3 Taoism’s central organizing principle is the interconnectedness of all life with its flow of continuous change. Nowhere is this idea expressed in such a unique and exquisite manner as in the concept of yin-yang, which describes the underlying unity of life through the interplay of opposites. Taoist writings state that all things and all processes contain two primal energies or forces. These two basic aspects of manifestation often are described as masculine and feminine, light and dark, negative and positive, creative and receptive. The original meaning of the term signified the light and dark sides of a mountain.
