Was Paranormal Activity 2 better than the first one?
 Quoting: Azeratel Axo


I didn't really enjoy either. As find this type of medium to do little other than cause people to fear that which may be labeled as the 'paranormal'.


It seems, people are inherently drawn to this topic, often due to an unexplainable experience.

Which most likely caused fear or deep curiosity at the time.

To find that moment again, one will attempt to 're-create' it artificially through cinema, books, gaming, etc. How the paranormal is often portrayed today would lead one to believe more in the fear than the curiosity. Yet that remains as well.

The 'fear' aspect gets ingrained with the 'creep' factor often due to the types musical effects utilized during 'scary scenes'.


Which is then can be automatically expressed when confronting a true paranormal event that one may witness.

Most will stand dumbfounded and either dismiss it entirely, tell only select people, or never say a word...

That is what I was thinking, they did it out of necessity. Like living in the woods in the old days, they would tell stories to scare the children from wandering away into the woods of the night. Their fear of their children lost caused them to use fear tactics towards their children. And the reason is because it worked for the majority because their parents did the same thing, and the cycle moves until one goes against the grain and comes up with a new way to be.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32430667


One thing I've been thinking about is a sort of "futuristic/post apocalyptic" vision of the same idea.

What if the children are armed to the teeth with advanced self-defense equipment? Wandering away into the forest in that case would still be dangerous, but not for the same reasons.

What should parents say in that case? If the true danger cannot be effectively communicated?

Re: X Marks the Spot
An X-2 class solar flare recently missed a direct impact with Earth.

Heliophysicists classify solar flares according to their brightness in X-ray wavelengths. C-class flares are the smallest on the scale, with X-ray measurements in the 10^-6 watts per square meter range (W/m^2), while X-class flares can exceed 10^-4 W/m^2. Why is that important?

An X-2 solar flare has enough energy to overload satellite circuits and disrupt other forms of communication should its full force be directed at Earth.

Modern astronomers believe that solar flares, or coronal mass ejections (CME), occur when magnetic reconnection events in the Sun’s atmosphere cause a short circuit in magnetic field lines. According to one theory, “magnetic energy” then accelerates the superheated gases into space. Although no one knows what “magnetic reconnection” is, it is the only explanation offered................
 Quoting: observation

 Quoting: aether


As far as I know, if a really big dangerous x flare does hit us we will actually hear it in the sky. It will sound like ice cracking, very loud. It will also make you feel very very nausious almost instantly. But all this is meaningless because it's the end of the line for most.

 Quoting: aether


The healing uses of crystals are documented as far back as 1500 B.C. in the Ebers Papyrus from Egypt. This Egyptian medicinal text documented the many ways in which crystals were used for healing.

-The ancient Egyptians strongly believed in the healing and protective power of crystals. Many pharaohs wore crystals on their headdresses and many crystal amulets have been found in their tombs. The pharaohs often had their masks lined with crystals in the belief that crystals helped them be better rulers. Many objects of Amazonite and Lapis were found in King Tut’s tomb and Amazonite was one of the stones on his famous gold mask.

-Crystals are also used for healing in Chinese Medicine, which dates back to at least 5000 years. Crystal needles are also often used in modern day Chinese acupuncture and in Pranic Healing.

-Crystals have also been recognized for healing by Tibetan Buddhists and the Ayurvedic healing system for hundreds of years. The use of crystals is popular in both Hinduism and Buddhism.

-The Vedas, sacred texts in Hinduism that are over 5,000 years old, thoroughly discuss the power of crystals and their uses for healing. The Vedas prescribe specific crystals for certain ailments and describe the properties and powers of different crystals. For example, in the Vedas it is written that Emeralds bring good luck and well-being.

-Crystals are referred to over 200 times in the Bible......................

Orange Catholic Bible

The Orange Catholic Bible (abbreviated to O. C. Bible or OCB) is a fictional book from the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert. Created in the wake of the crusade against thinking machines known as the Butlerian Jihad, the Orange Catholic Bible is the key religious text in the Dune universe and is described thus in the glossary of the 1965 novel Dune:

ORANGE CATHOLIC BIBLE: the "Accumulated Book," the religious text produced by the Commission of Ecumenical Translators. It contains elements of most ancient religions, including the Maometh Saari, Mahayana Christianity, Zensunni Catholicism and Buddislamic traditions. Its supreme commandment is considered to be: "Thou shalt not disfigure the soul."

 Quoting: Wiki


[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Hah, this is pretty neat.

In Dune, Dr. Yueh gives Paul Atreides his copy of the Orange Catholic Bible during their initial trip to Arrakis. This copy is a space-traveler's miniaturized edition of the book, set in tiny print on fragile pages made from "filament paper." It is described as "black, oblong, no larger than the end of Paul's thumb" but contains eighteen hundred pages. Yueh instructs Paul in its use:

It has its own magnifier and electrostatic charge system ... The book is held closed by the charge, which forces against spring-locked covers. You press the edge — thus, and the pages you've selected repel each other and the book opens ... the charge moves ahead one page at a time as you read. Never touch the actual pages with your fingers. The filament tissue is too delicate.

Lovely.

Dune is one of my all-time favorite movies.

How to 'open the book' reminds me of this...


I just want to offer my musing about the crop circle today after I looked at it for a bit...

PandorasCube2


For me it seems to be a representation of Pandora's 'Box'...this one however in 'cube' form.

If I am reading the directions correctly it seems one must push equally on all sides simultaneously to open as indicated by the arrows.

Instead of attempting to pull it apart, one must push in.

The perhaps it will 'pop' open.


damned


That is what I was able to glean from the image.




Just to note, I have mentioned a few times, I don't often remember my dreams any longer. It was quite distressing for me for sometime but now I have grown use to it.

I woke with one this morning that I found so curious I relayed it to another before I had seen the crop circle image.



Take it for what it is...

A Dream.


I was in a type of rubble field. I unearthed a tin-type box out of a wall which surprisingly broke away very easily.

I sensed the wall and the box had been there for some time.


When I opened the box, within it lay an assortment of 9-12 large precious jewels. A Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, and so on.

All different, priceless, and set carefully apart as to display each individually.

Each lay in its respective spot, but was held in place by no means I could glean.

I found that curious with them having been in the box so long and not gently removed from the wall.

 Quoting: Seer777


that is how "sacred geometry" does what it does, from the inside outwards as described by you because the information arises from within and the "instructions" radiate out into the completed shape

the interesting part of your dream is discovery of what is by tradition is precious (jewels/material)
but your attention focused on the invisible (non material) influence that formed/sustained them
this tells you by nature see what is not traditionally seen and what traditionally distracts (causes no desire to see further) does not distract your vision

Savitr (Sanskrit: stem savitr-,) is a solar deity in the Rigveda, and one of the Adityas i.e. off-spring of Vedic deity Aditi. His name in Vedic Sanskrit connotes "impeller, rouser, vivifier". He is sometimes identified with--and at other times distinguished from--Surya, "the Sun". When considered distinct from the Sun proper, he is conceived of as the divine influence or vivifying power of the Sun. The Sun before sunrise is called Savitr, and after sunrise until sunset it is called Surya.[1] Savitr is celebrated in eleven whole hymns of the Rig Veda and in parts of many others, his name being mentioned about 170 times in aggregate.
 Quoting: Wiki


[link to en.wikipedia.org]




Gayatri Mantra (the mother of the vedas), the foremost mantra in hinduism and hindu beliefs, inspires wisdom. Its meaning is that "May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path". The mantra is also a prayer to the "giver of light and life" - the sun (savitur).
Gayatri, the five-faced Goddess, is said to have domain over the five senses or pranas, and protects these five life-forces of those who chant the Gayatri Mantra. In her role as the protector, Gayatri is referred to as Savitri.
 Quoting: .



In traditional Brahmin practice the Gayatri Mantra is addressed to God as the divine life-giver, symbolized by Savitr (the sun), and is most often recited at sunrise and sunset.[34] It is believed by practitioners that reciting the mantra bestows wisdom and enlightenment, through the vehicle of the Sun (Savitr), who represents the source and inspiration of the universe.[19] Recitation at sunrise every morning is part of the daily ritual
 Quoting: Wiki


Oh God! Thou art the Giver of Life,
Remover of pain and sorrow,
The Bestower of happiness,
Oh! Creator of the Universe,
May we receive thy supreme sin-destroying light,
May Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.

The Fifth Root Race—In Ascendancy


DNA alters over time as a result of how people respond to the needs and stressors of their environment; these changes can be accelerated if transformative events, such as near-death experiences and spiritual breakthroughs, occur in numbers large enough to jumpstart the evolutionary process. Once the new traits overspread land masses and population groups, a genetic “makeover”–a species-wide-alteration–can result. That shift is now happening. Think of it as an update within the human family.


Thread: Edgar Cayce: The Fifth Root Race—In Ascendancy
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35363202



I like to think of it a bit like attempting to 'push-start' a train. The first pushes being the most taxing. As the engine begins to gain momentum the resistance become a little less difficult. Up until that is, that an adequate speed is reached, to 'pop' the clutch and get this thing moving on its own.

Sonoluminescence is the emission of short bursts of light from imploding bubbles in a liquid when excited by sound
 Quoting: observation


we know a bubble is electrical process forming a sphere from inside outwards utilizing the charge that exists to be utilized (aether/higgs/indra) in response to prompting from the environment the sphere is to become formed within

light is electromagnetic charge as in charge that has slowed down enough to become visible/material

we know implosion releases that which is within to be released

we know liquid is the medium that prompts the sphere to form within

we know sound is pressure

universal pressure (sound around) upon the sphere causes it to universally reduce to the point where the inwards induced pressure (sound) overwhelms the outward tensegrity force of the sphere structure causing it to implode thus releasing the electromagnetic force (light) that was sustaining it within

Was looking for ya Nico, haven't found anything yet, but came apon this website that has some interesting stuff:

[link to www.aquiziam.com]

I'll post the first one but the rest are just as good:

1. CAT FUR AND AMBER GENERATOR

There can be no doubt that ancient civilizations were aware of static electricity even if they may not have fully understood it. They also appreciated the godlike power of lightning and must have been curious to observe this effect replicated in miniature when the fur of a cat was rubbed against certain materials in a darkened room. The effects of static electricity were first recorded by a Greek philosopher, Thales of Miletus, who lived between 624 BC and 546 BC. He is said to have experimented with amber, which the Greeks referred to as Elektron, and cat fur to create an electrical discharge as well as magnetism. From this observation a simple machine consisting of two spinning disks, one covered with leopard fur and one coated with glass or amber could be connected to gold axles and foil strips which would produce an electrical charge capable of generating sparks several inches in length.


The 7th and 10th stand out to me as well.

Tamed Dragon supply ship arrives at space station

In the end, the Dragon approached the orbiting lab with its 1-ton load about as smoothly as could be expected, with all of its thrusters, or little maneuvering rockets, operating perfectly. The capture occurred as the two spacecraft zoomed 250 miles above Ukraine.

"As they say, it's not where you start, but where you finish that counts," said space station commander Kevin Ford, "and you guys really finished this one on the mark."

The actual anchoring of the Dragon to the space station, 2½ hours after its arrival, also unfolded without a hitch. "The Dragon is ours!" Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield announced via Twitter.


The 41-year-old entrepreneur, who also runs the electric car maker Tesla, oversaw the entire operation from Hawthorne, Calif., home to SpaceX and the company's Mission Control.

The Dragon's splashdown in the Pacific, meanwhile, remains on schedule for March 25.

The word tapis also refers to the resulting cloth. It consists of a striped, naturally-coloured cloth embroidered with warped and couched gold thread
Traditionally, tapis is worn as a sarong for weddings, Eid ul-Fitr celebrations, and welcoming ceremonies. However, tapis can also be used as a wall decoration.[4] When worn, it forms a cylinder around the wearer's legs
