“Every age,

every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and cruelties; it accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils.
Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap”.
Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf

(A quote from an Au art exhibition in 2005.

What’s Best?

There was once a little girl who loved asking questions.
‘What’s best? she would ask her mother.
Alles r pears? Roses or gladioli? Water or lemonade? Ball or doll?’
Her mother answered patiently, though she did have her doubts. How can you say what’s best out of a ball and doll, a rose and gladiola?
There came a day when the little girl asked: ‘Mother, what’s best: fairy tales or songs?’
‘Just you tell me what’s best, the sun or sky’, Mother said. ‘ And if you can answer that, I’ll tell you what’s best out of fairy tales and songs.’
The little girl thought long and hard, but it was no use. She gazed up at the sky and the bright round sun. They were so beautiful and quite inseparable.
After that the little girl no longer asked what’s best. She had another question: what’s best about fairy tales? What’s best about songs?
And Mother was delighted to tell her.

The Void

We fight with the void and are then defeated
not because the void is stronger than us
but because it is not.

Now stand up and fight with the empty space of the room
so that you can know and taste
the whole stupidity of the human mind.
And then sit down and laugh at yourself,
and as the laughter dies down
be silent and search within,
and then you will come to know a deep mystery:
the mystery that the void is not only without
but within also!Osho

What dots are we going to leave behind?


Each generation must revive the universal heritage from above in its own language, conditions, and further understanding so that humanity can progress up the ladder.
There is some catching up to do.
I heard that in the past, religions used to have psychological schools, where students would learn from the teachers the practical aspects of the highest science on Earth.
There would be sacred dances, sacred music, singing, arts&crafts martial arts, and studies of esoteric science…
Last century the “forest philosophers” brought this knowledge to the surface and it has been practiced in small circles since. Why not introduce it to humanity in a broader way? Why not revive that spirit, dreaming in each of us, waiting to be woken up?
When looking at these abandoned, yet beautiful architectural structures, I can easily imagine such schools being created within them. The ravages of time will otherwise disintegrate them the same way we can see already in our contemporary concrete architecture.
If the robots or the apes are to inherit the Earth it will be of no concern, but if humans somehow manage to survive, what dots will they be connecting?

The Prague Astronomical and Astrological Clock (Babylonian Time)


The Sun arm with a golden hand attached to it shows three various times on the astronomical dial: common civil time, Old Czech Time, and Babylonian time. The oldest one, which is not used today, is the time in unequal hours, called Babylonian hours (or, for their astrological meaning, planetary hours). The Babylonian time is read approximately at the place where the golden Sun is located, or rather in the intersection of the Sun arm and the ecliptic on the fingery lines. The time between the sunrise and sunset was divided into 12 equal portions, whose duration changes in the course of the year. The contemporary common civil time divides the day into 2×12 equally long hours starting at midnight and at noon. The time of the old Czech (Italian) clock also divides the day into 24 equal hours counted from the sunset. It is indicated on the outward rotated dial – the 24‑hour ring. The golden star connected to the ecliptic ring indicates the sidereal time, which is counted from the moment of passing of the vernal point over the local meridian.

Y.T. Wee Darwin’s Universe: Survival for Nothing Review

Darwin’s Universe: From Nothing, By Nothing and For Nothing. It’s Survival For Nothing! Evolution can only offer humans a meaningless existence.

Darwinists hope to bury God in an avalanche of a causeless universe and a godless evolution.

However, instead of liberating us, they plunge us into a cosmic depression. We are reduced to: From Nothing, By Nothing, For Nothing – an accidental leftover from the Big Bang, evolved by a lucky chance, and here for no ultimate purpose

We are just walking molecules, birthed through a cosmic accident, dancing to the music of our DNA, and destined to disappear in a cosmic blink – nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.

And when we look to science and evolution for answers, all we get is a blank look. Life has no real purpose, dude – it is about the survival of the genes in us – feeding, fending, fleeting and fathering – just live through it and get it over with. Our final destination is the hole in the ground.

But is it true?

Perhaps we are: From Someone, By Someone, For Someone. Perhaps there is an unexplored and awesome universe beyond the Darwinian world of survival for nothing.

Science encourages us to think critically and lets us place Darwinism in the crosshairs and examine it in the light of empirical science – is it observable and repeatable? If not, it is not experimental science. And, as we shall see, Darwinism is an unobservable and unreproducible pseudo-science.

This book will walk us through cosmology, biology, philosophy and end with theology, the queen of the sciences. Empirical science buries Darwinism and resurrects Creationism. We are more than cosmic orphans lost in an accidental, uncaring and dying Universe; we are living souls, made in the image of God, and designed to have a wonderful relationship with an awesome Creator.

Yan T Wee, the founding Pastor of Shalom Baptist Church, Singapore, writes from his fascinating research into the latest skirmish between speculative Darwinism and deducible Creationism. He concludes that Darwinism, when viewed in its entirety, is not only disingenuous, but a guaranteed, one-way ticket into the universe of ultimate meaninglessness and despair:

Do actually militaries have the right to withhold the scientific information from humanity, that has been obtained by the publicly funded international Human Genome Project, in which participated many leading universities?
The consequences of such conduct are beyond the scope of their power. They have been asked many times to reveal this information, with no results. Yet this very information is necessary to any meaningful debates about how to conduct life on our planet and thus solve peacefully the burning issues.
So has not the time come to present the request to the international court?
Or have we reached the point where even the international court is just an extended arm of the military?
