Borobudur Borobudur, or Barabudur, is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument consists of six square platforms topped by three circular platforms and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues.[1] A main dome, located at the center of the top platform, is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues seated inside a perforated stupa. It is the world’s largest Buddhist temple,[2][3] as well as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.[4] Evidence suggests Borobudur was constructed in the 9th century and abandoned following the 14th-century decline of Hindu kingdoms in Java and the Javanese conversion to Islam.[7] Worldwide knowledge of its existence was sparked in 1814 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, then the British ruler of Java, who was advised of its location by native Indonesians.

Hundredth monkey effect The hundredth monkey effect is a studied phenomenon[1] in which a new behavior or idea is claimed to spread rapidly by unexplained, even supernatural, means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behavior or acknowledge the new idea. The theory behind this phenomenon originated with Lawrence Blair and Lyall Watson in the mid-to-late 1970s, who claimed that it was the observation of Japanese scientists. One of the primary factors in the promulgation of the story is that many authors quote secondary, tertiary or post-tertiary sources who have themselves misrepresented the original observations.[1] Popularisation of the effect[edit] The story of the hundredth monkey effect was published in Lyall Watson's foreword to Lawrence Blair's Rhythms of Vision in 1975,[2] and spread with the appearance of Watson's 1979 book Lifetide. This story was further popularised by Ken Keyes, Jr. with the publication of his book The Hundredth Monkey.

Der Weg e.V. - Jesus ist der Weg!: Atomtests Diese Seite habe ich zusammengestellt, damit Sie sich eine Vorstellung von der Menge an radioaktiver Strahlung machen können, die über die Jahre ganz bewußt bei Atomversuchen freigesetzt wurde - und das Leben ging trotzdem recht normal weiter. Dies ist kein Argument für Atombomben und deren Tests, auch nicht für unverantwortlichen Umgang mit radioaktivem Material. Ich möchte lediglich anregen darüber nachzudenken, was uns die tägliche Propaganda der Politik und Medien über die "Gefahren der Kernenergie" so alles erzählt bzw. vorlügt. Wie bei allen Themen wäre ein echt sachlicher, offener Umgang miteinander und eine wirklich sachlich unabhängige Diskussion nötig. Doch da es bei der Frage um die Energieversorgung um Milliardenbeträge geht und die weltweite Versorgung nur noch in wenigen Händen ist, sind die Interessen riesig und die ausgeübte Macht mit unvorstellbar viel Geld ausgestattet, was alle Wahrheit im Keim erstickt!
