About Us | InTerraTree h Founding Drums for Development g The story of InTerraTree began in 2010 when founder, Nick Joyce, was living in West Africa. Feeling deeply connected to the people he had met, and having seen the negative side effects of common aid models (dependency, loss of cultural identity, breakdown of social structures, environmental degradation), he knew he needed to develop a different strategy. Positive development had to celebrate cultural diversity and creativity, support local community resilience, protect the environment, and have long-lasting positive impacts. Senam, or Sego, is the founder of Centre des Hommes, a Togolese cooperative supporting sustainable community development through the arts. Upon his return to the United States, Nick founded the social enterprise Drums for Development. j Bringing InTerraTree to Life Meanwhile, Nick and Sego had an even bigger project in mind. And so, the idea of InTerraTree was born. Our Partners Drums for Development Centre Des Hommes h Nick Joyce

Ether vibrations Chapter 6 Aether vibrations Quantum physics that has been around for some hundred odd years now is still mainstream physics most accepted physics. Although quantum science has revealed the presence of the zero point field with all its virtual subatomic particles and photons that jump into existence from apparently nowhere to return to oblivion nanoseconds later, there is still is no reasonable explanation as to how and why particles and photons can appear and disappear just like that. Also the quantum probability wave is still hard to grasp and visualize. Quantum physics may have proven to be a mathematically correct science; for lay people the wave-particle duality of quantum science it is still very hard to understand. Another difficult thing to grasp is the atom model presented by Niels Bohr where electrons fly in well-defined shells around the nucleus. Even three hundred years after the discovery of gravity by Newton, science still has no theoretical explanation for it. The aether Dr.

Ancient European hunter-gatherer was dark-skinned and blue-eyed caveman A recent analysis on DNA taken from the wisdom tooth of a 7,000-year-old human found in Spain in 2006 has overturned the popular image of light-skinned European hunter-gatherers. The study revealed that the individual had dark hair, the dark-skinned genes of an African, though scientists don’t know this exact skin tone, and blue-eyes, which were thought to have been brought to Europe by late-arriving farmers who invaded the continent more than 5,000 years ago. The new study, published in the journal Nature and led by Inigo Olalde of Spain’s Institut de Biologia Evolutiva in Barcelona, involved the first ever analysis of a pre-agricultural European genome and has given scientists an unprecedented glimpse of modern humans in Europe before the rise of farming. The skeletons of two Mesolithic men were discovered in 2006 in a cave system in the Cantabrian Mountains, near León in northwest Spain. The first unexpected finding was the fact the individual had dark skin. By April Holloway

Earth changes Chapter 1 Earth changes Our dear mother Earth, Gaia is suffering under the stress of human endeavours that have become unbearable as the world population keeps growing at an unfathomable rate. The present world population counts 6 billion souls and will grow to 10 billion by 2030 and 20 billion by 2070 if the present growth rate is maintained. Humanity alone consumes 40% of the net primary production of food and energy that the Earth has available for its entire species. Gaia is no longer able to cope with the beatings she’s had and we are going to experience the results rather sooner than later, it’s only a matter of time. We no longer have to believe scientists who claim that ‘global warming’ cannot be proven and that Earth is doing well. Many are also experiencing dramatic changes in their personal lives. Even our political structures, the established parties that once were the cornerstones and glues of our society have become unpredictable. Prophecies So there is still hope!

Emancipated Human - Luis Fernando Mises, Austrian Economics, Libertarian, News and Awareness Sacred Mathematics Sacred Mathematics, by way of definition, refers to the concepts which, according to ancient (and a few modern) scholars, encompassed all of creation in mathematical terms. It includes numerical ratios of the most profound significance (literally Transcendental Numbers), the nature of numbers themselves (Numerology), their mutual relationship (Astrology), strange beasts such as Magic Squares Sacred Geometry which seem to defy logical or rational explanation, and the manner in which all of these aspects describe the universe. More information on this topic can be found at the Halexandria Forums. Sacred Mathematics represents a wholly contained and internally consistent philosophy -- a philosophy which describes physical reality, its cosmogony and every aspect of its science. The Greek Philosopher, Plato, has said: “Geometry is knowledge of the eternally existent. This profoundly philosophical interpretation or Mathematical Theory is echoed in many spiritual traditions. Finally,

The holographic universe: Where science and spirituality meet 2011 World Science Festival panel discussion on the holographic principle. What we touch. What we smell. What we feel. They're all part of our reality. The Conscious Resistance Network | Join us Today! What is Love? A Sacred Geometry Experiement Have you ever heard of Helixileh? It’s a game created by David Beler, a guy who has passionately studied the Flower of Life for many years, and has used it to create a mind-map-esque game where you explore the most intimate recesses of your mind, essentially by mapping out and following the connections that come to your head as you analyze different words, thoughts and feelings. In this Helixileh, we have analyzed the meaning of Love, and used the words that came up to create a few paragraphs describing love beneath it We started with the word “Love” in the center, and then continued to spiral all around it making patterns and connections between the energies until we ended up at the very end. If you’d like to learn more about Helixileh and the Flower of Life, we’ve put together a video about it below to explain it in more detail Enjoy!

24,000-Year-Old Siberian Boy Sheds New Light on Origins of Native Americans | Anthropology The genome sequence of a 24,000-year-old young Siberian individual found in Russia shows that 14 to 38 percent of modern Native American’s ancestry came from this youngster’s gene pool, suggesting First Americans came directly from Siberia. The new study shows that ancestors of Native Americans migrated to the Americas from Siberia and not directly from Europe. Painting by G. Mülzel. The Paleolithic skeleton was first discovered in the late 1920s near the village of Mal’ta in south-central Siberia, and since then it has been referred to as the Mal’ta child because until this DNA study the biological sex of the skeleton was unknown. “Now we can say with confidence that this individual was a male,” said Dr Kelly Graf from Texas A&M University, a co-author of the paper published in Nature. Dr Graf with colleagues used material from the boy’s upper arm to sequence his mitochondrial and nuclear genomes. The DNA study performed on the boy is the oldest complete genome of a human sequenced so far.

It’s time for harmony between science and spirituality In the late summer of 1983, scientists such as the physicist Fritjof Capra and biologist Francisco Varela joined spiritual leaders such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama and zen master Baker Roshi at a pioneering event in Austria. By the end of the five-day conference, which was called Other Realities and took place in the village of Alpbach, it was hard for me to distinguish the scientists from the mystics. The conclusion of all the assembled wisdom was that spirituality without science tends to be self-obsessed and weak, and that science without spirituality was mechanistic and inhuman. There needed to be a fusion of the beauty of science and the blissful nature of spirituality. In the decades that followed, dialogue grew between scientific researchers and those with a spiritual vision for a better world. This lead into new fields of thought and understanding about the nature of reality. Here is where science has to revolutionise itself. Paul’s recommended reading:
