The symbol of the Swastika and its 12,000-year-old history

The symbol of the Swastika and its 12,000-year-old history
The swastika is a symbol used by of one of the most hated men on Earth, a symbol that represents the slaughter of millions of people and one of the most destructive wars on Earth. But Adolf Hitler was not the first to use this symbol. In fact, it was used as a powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents. For the Hindus and Buddhists in India and other Asian countries, the swastika was an important symbol for many thousands of years and, to this day, the symbol can still be seen in abundance - on temples, buses, taxis, and on the cover of books. It was also used in Ancient Greece and can be found in the remains of the ancient city of Troy, which existed 4,000 years ago. The ancient Druids and the Celts also used the symbol, reflected in many artefacts that have been discovered. The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘svasktika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. A Sanskrit scholar P. By John Black Related Links

Since 1945 the United States is Really the United Nations The content in this article is mostly accurate to my understanding, but you should always use your intuition to discern the information and do you own research to verify if it is all true. ~ PL Chang ( December 9th 1945, International Organization Immunities Act relinquished every public office of the United States to the United Nations. Whatever the form in which the Government functions, anyone entering into an arrangement with the Government takes the risk of having accurately ascertained that he who purports to act for the Government stays within the bounds of his authority. The scope of this authority may be explicitly defined by Congress or be limited by delegated legislation, properly exercised through the rule-making power. And this is so even though, as here, the agent himself may have been unaware of the limitations upon his authority.

Quantum physics enables perfectly secure cloud computing Researchers have succeeded in combining the power of quantum computing with the security of quantum cryptography and have shown that perfectly secure cloud computing can be achieved using the principles of quantum mechanics. They have performed an experimental demonstration of quantum computation in which the input, the data processing, and the output remain unknown to the quantum computer. The international team of scientists will publish the results of the experiment, carried out at the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ) at the University of Vienna and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), in the forthcoming issue of Science. Quantum computers are expected to play an important role in future information processing since they can outperform classical computers at many tasks. The latest research, to appear in Science, reveals that quantum computers can provide an answer to that challenge. The process works in the following manner.

The Book of Symbols: Carl Jung’s Catalog of the Unconscious by Kirstin Butler Why Sarah Palin identifies with the grizzly bear, or what the unconscious knows but doesn’t reveal. A primary method for making sense of the world is by interpreting its symbols. We decode meaning through images and, often without realizing, are swayed by the power of their attendant associations. Are All But One US Presidents Related? If America declared its Independence from the European monarchies in 1776, how is it possible that every single president has descended from European monarchs? If presidents are democratically elected as we are told, what are the odds that American’s always choose members of British and French royal bloodlines? “The Americas have always been owned and governed by the same royal families of Britain and Europe that conventional history states as being among those defeated during the wars of so-called ‘Independence.’” -Michael Tsarion, “Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology” “If it really is the Land of the Free and if, as is claimed, anyone really can become the president, you would fairly expect that the 43 presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush would express that genetic diversity. You’re having a laugh.

Building 'invisible' materials with light A new method of building materials using light, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, could one day enable technologies that are often considered the realm of science fiction, such as invisibility cloaks and cloaking devices. Although cloaked starships won't be a reality for quite some time, the technique which researchers have developed for constructing materials with building blocks a few billionths of a metre across can be used to control the way that light flies through them, and works on large chunks all at once. Details are published today (28 July) in the journal Nature Communications. The key to any sort of 'invisibility' effect lies in the way light interacts with a material.

The Real Reasons We Dropped Atom Bombs on Japan By David Redick Due to the recent 70th anniversary of dropping two atom bombs on Japan, there has been a lot of discussion about why we did it. American ‘Patriots’ claim it was necessary to ‘save lives’ by avoiding an invasion of Japan. This is the standard false pitch from our self-serving ‘leaders’ in DC. Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings. Alex Huth explains the science of how the brain organizes visual categories. (Alex Huth video)

Numbers and their Meanings Powerful Sacred Jewelry and Talismans Masterfully Crafted by the Known Artist - David Weitzman Numerology | Kabbalah | Amulets Numbers and Their Meanings 24 Terrifying, Thoughtful and Absurd Nursery Rhymes for Children In more repressed times, people were not always allowed to express themselves freely, for fear of persecution. Gossiping, criticizing the government or even talking about current events were often punishable by death. In order to communicate at will, clever rhymes were constructed and passed around to parody public figures and events. The first nursery rhymes can be traced back to the fourteenth century. While the Bubonic Plaque ravaged England, peasants used a rhyme to spread the word about equality. The "Adam and Eve" rhyme made peasants realize that they were important to the economy and contributed to the Peasants Revolt of 1381.

Inter-Locking Waveforms & the Five Sense World V. Susan Ferguson, ContributorWaking Times “The only way to traverse the vast distances of space is to possess the means of manipulating or altering the very structure of space itself — altering the space-time geometric matrix, which to us provides the illusion of form and distance. The method of achieving this lies in the alteration of the frequencies controlling the matter-antimatter cycles that govern our awareness or perception of position in the space-time structure.” — Bruce Cathie, The Harmonic Conquest of Space As I was finishing up my Rig Veda article on the progenitors of the mankind who orbit the Moon, the Pitaram who are said to be the regents of the Naksatras Maghâ and Mûla, I was looking around for something and by chance noticed Bruce Cathie’s book, The Harmonic Conquest of Space. I picked it up and found the above paragraph, realizing that Cathie had said what I was hoping to communicate and he had said it perfectly.

The Fine Art of Italian Hand Gestures: A Vintage Visual Dictionary by Bruno Munari by Maria Popova A pocket guide to Neapolitan nonverbal communication. Somewhere between his seminal manifestos on design as art and his timelessly delightful children’s books, legendary Italian artist and graphic designer Bruno Munari made time for a number of idiosyncratic side projects. Among them is Speak Italian: The Fine Art of the Gesture (UK; public library) — a charming, quirky, minimalist guide to Italians’ expressive nonverbal communication originally published in 1958 as a supplement to the Italian dictionary, inspired by The Ancients’ Mimic Through the Neapolitan Gestures, the first collection of gestures made by Canon Andrea de Jorio in 1832. Unlike the hefty and sparsely illustrated 380-page original tome, however, Munari’s pocket-sized version features frugally descriptive text and ample, elegant black-and-white photographs of hand-gestures for everything from mundane activities like reading and writing to emotive expressions of praise and criticism.

How Close Is a Workable Brain-Computer Interface? The ultimate goal of brain-computer interfaces is something direct, noninvasive and relatively high bandwidth. Not even science fiction authors believe that a non-invasive approach is ever going to happen. Think about all the times you’ve seen someone in movies like The Matrix “jack in” to a computer via a gnarly port in their skull.
