Council of Vienne 1311-1312 A.D. re Unum Sanctum 1302 v Magna Carta 1215 In 1301 King Philip had a French bishop tried for treason and imprisoned. This was intolerable and Boniface issued a reproving bull, which in 1302 was decisively rejected by the Estates General, even the French clergy supporting their king. Boniface announced that he would depose Philip if need be and issued the bull Unam Sanctam('One Holy'),the most famous papal document of the Middle Ages, affirming the authority of the pope as the heir of Peter and Vicar of Christ over all human authorities, spiritual and temporal. Spiritual power, according to the bull, rests in the hands of the Church.
Building a Celtic Roundhouse The walls of roundhouses were either dry stone filled in with clay and straw, or a ring of support poles weaved with wattling and plastered in daub, or a mixture of both stone and wattling as being built here (left). Wattle and daub is one of the oldest building techniques dating back to the Bronze Age and beyond. Wattling is a way to build walls by weaving long flexible sticks in and out of upright posts. Hazel, which is pliable and grows naturally long, is a good species to use for wattle.
The Silk Road On the eastern and western sides of the continent, the civilisations of China and the West developed. The western end of the trade route appears to have developed earlier than the eastern end, principally because of the development of the the empires in the west, and the easier terrain of Persia and Syria. The Iranian empire of Persia was in control of a large area of the Middle East, extending as far as the Indian Kingdoms to the east. Trade between these two neighbours was already starting to influence the cultures of these regions. Spreading The Word: Rome WAS built in a day A kingdom of ideas Once upon a time there was a city called Rome. For five centuries it was a republic and much more beautiful, for it was run by the people who got along nicely. And then one day it became a kingdom of ideas, when a family came along from nowhere. They were the Julian family with Julius Caesar and his adopted nephew Augustus, and then the Piso family, who were the Flavians. And the days came when blood filled the streets of Rome that Tacitus recalled as the days of horror.

How Words Can Be Used as Magic Spells How Words Can Be Used as Magic Spells Words are not just elements of speech or writing, because they can be used to strengthen the effects of magic, which is the art of directing and controlling energy. When spoken out loud, words transform into frequencies and vibrations that can be used to direct energy. This is one of the first steps to creating magic effects. Most people will laugh at the idea of magic being real, but if only they knew what magic really is and how magic is being used to control them, they would not be laughing.
How Whole Turmeric Heals The Damaged Brain Long considered impossible to accomplish, new research reveals how a simple spice might contribute to the regeneration of the damaged brain. Turmeric is hands down one of the, if not the, most versatile healing spice in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits, and an ancient history filled with deep reverence for its seemingly compassionate power to alleviate human suffering. But, most of the focus over the past decade has been centered on only one of its many hundreds of phytocompounds: namely, the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin which gives the spice its richly golden hue. This curcumin-centric focus has lead to the development of some very good products, such as phospholipid bound curcumin concentrate (e.g. Meriva, BCM-95) which greatly helps to increase the absorption and bio-activity of curcumin. Truth be told, there is no singular ‘magic bullet’ in foods and herbs responsible for reproducing the whole plant’s healing power.

Sugar Harms Your Brain Health, Drives Alzheimer’s Epidemic By Dr. Joseph Mercola Guest Writer for Wake Up World Alzheimer’s disease, a severe form of dementia, affects an estimated 5.2 million Americans, according to 2013 statistics. One in nine seniors over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s, and the disease is now thought to be the third leading cause of death in the US, right behind heart disease and cancer. A growing body of research suggests there’s a powerful connection between your diet and your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, via similar pathways that cause type 2 diabetes. San Serriffe (1977) On April 1, 1977 the British newspaper The Guardian published a seven-page "special report" about San Serriffe, a small republic located in the Indian Ocean consisting of several semi-colon-shaped islands. A series of articles described the geography and culture of this obscure nation. The report generated a huge response. The Guardian's phones rang all day as readers sought more information about the idyllic holiday spot. However, San Serriffe did not actually exist. The report was an elaborate April Fool's Day joke — one with a typographical twist, since numerous details about the island (such as its name) alluded to printer's terminology.
The Chaining of Saturn/Sol « Author Elva Thompson In the beginning was the Golden Age, when men of their own accord, without threat of punishment, without laws, maintained good faith and did what was right….The earth itself, without compulsion, untouched by the hoe, unfurrowed by any share, produced all things spontaneously….it was a season of everlasting spring. Ovid in the sixth book of his Metamorphoses. The Golden Age of Sol/Saturn Exploring the Superconscious Interview with Dr Edward Bynum, author of Dark Light Consciousness Author: Jair Robles We are all familiar with its symbolic representations, be it from the caduceus used by modern medicine, the winged serpent of Prehispanic Mesoamerican cultures or the dragons commonly seen at most Asian celebrations. It is said to represent a dormant energy that lies within every one of us, at the base of the spine, and that when this energy is awakened and driven into the brain it opens up our access to higher states of consciousness and our connection to the divine. Much of the disciplines and practices developed by the ancient traditions and practiced at the mystery schools were geared to this sole purpose. It is refreshing and exciting to find that current scientists and scholars, such as Dr Edward Bynum, are making an effort to bring this knowledge back for the scrutiny and study of modern science.
