Thundebolts Project

This is a stunning film about new theories of what they call the Electric Universe which is rewriting modern physics. It depicts a much more friendly, elegant universe than that of the standard model. As Einstein said: The most important question a person can ask, "Is the universe a friendly place?"

Resonance Project

Nassim Harrimein has created the Resonance Project, and has interesting ideas about sacred geometry and the structure of the universe. I have long been interested in the convergence of science and ancient spirituality. It seems that physics and metaphysics are coming into accord more all the time. Physics not only allows for God in creation, but demonstrates that Mind is the very fabric of the Cosmos.
The top photos shows the correspondences between the Platonic solids and planetary orbits. The second photo shows patterns of bird flock flight that follows geometric patterning. This is known as murmuration, and is often demonstrated in the swimming patterns of schools of fish as well. Isn't this a fascinating world we live in?

Sacred Geometry and Music

This is a fascinating image and concept. We are finding more and more correspondences in this marvelous creation. Here is the link to the website posting this,so that you can read more: http://cosmometry.net/basics-of-the-music-system

Below Ground Greenhouse

Build a $300 underground greenhouse for year-round gardening (Video) Kimberley Mok Design / Green Architecture February 22, 2013 © Neo-farms Growers in colder climates often utilize various approaches to extend the growing season or to give their crops a boost, whether it's coldframes, hoop houses or greenhouses. Greenhouses are usually glazed structures, but are typically expensive to construct and heat throughout the winter. A much more affordable and effective alternative to glass greenhouses is the walipini (an Aymara Indian word for a "place of warmth"), also known as an underground or pit greenhouse. First developed over 20 years ago for the cold mountainous regions of South America, this method allows growers to maintain a productive garden year-round, even in the coldest of climates. Here's a video tour of a walipini that even incorporates a bit of interior space for goats: How a Walipini works and how to build one © Benson Institute It's a pretty intriguing set-up that combines the principles of passive solar heating with earth-sheltered building. But how to make one?From American sustainable agriculture non-profit Benson Institute comes this enlightening manual on how a walipini works, and how to build it: The Walipini utilizes nature’s resources to provide a warm, stable, well-lit environment for year-round vegetable production. Locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground and capturing and storing daytime solar radiation are the most important principles in building a successful Walipini. The Walipini, in simplest terms, is a rectangular hole in the ground 6 ‛ to 8’ deep covered by plastic sheeting. The longest area of the rectangle faces the winter sun -- to the north in the Southern Hemisphere and to the south in the Northern Hemisphere. A thick wall of rammed earth at the back of the building and a much lower wall at the front provide the needed angle for the plastic sheet roof. This roof seals the hole, provides an insulating airspace between the two layers of plastic (a sheet on the top and another on the bottom of the roof/poles) and allows the sun's rays to penetrate creating a warm, stable environment for plant growth. SilverThunder/via This earth-sheltered greenhouse taps into the thermal mass of the earth, so that much less energy is needed to heat up the walipini's interior than an aboveground greenhouse. Of course, there are precautions to take in waterproofing, drainage and ventilating the walipini, while aligning it properly to the sun -- which the manual covers in detail. Best of all, according to the Benson Institute, their 20-foot by 74-foot walipni field model out in La Paz cost around $250 to $300 only, thanks to the use of free labour provided by owners and neighbours, and the use of cheaper materials like plastic ultraviolet (UV) protective sheeting and PVC piping. Cheap but effective, the underground greenhouse is a great way for growers to produce food year-round in colder climates. More over at the Benson Institute and the Pure Energy Systems Wiki.

Speaking with Authority

This comedian nails something which is not really that funny. Jesus was killed because he dared to speak with authority. On the other hand, if your only authority is words on a page, and not your own inner knowing and experience; then you are not really speaking with authority.

Quantum Physics and Spirit

Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in milliseconds, over and over again. Nothing is solid. This is the world of Quantum Physics. They have proven that thoughts are what put together and hold together this ever-changing energy field into the ‘objects’ that we see. So why do we see a person instead of a flashing cluster of energy? Think of a movie reel. A movie is a collection of about 24 frames a second. Each frame is separated by a gap. However, because of the speed at which one frame replaces another, our eyes get cheated into thinking that we see a continuous and moving picture. Think of television. A TV tube is simply a tube with heaps of electrons hitting the screen in a certain way, creating the illusion of form and motion. This is what all objects are anyway. You have 5 physical senses (sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste). Each of these senses has a specific spectrum (for example, a dog hears a different range of sound than you do; a snake sees a different spectrum of light than you do; and so on). In other words, your set of senses perceives the sea of energy from a certain limited standpoint and makes up an image from that. It is not complete, nor is it accurate. It is just an interpretation. All of our interpretations are solely based on the ‘internal map’ of reality that we have, and not the real truth. Our ‘map’ is a result of our personal life’s collective experiences. Our thoughts are linked to this invisible energy and they determine what the energy forms. Your thoughts literally shift the universe on a particle-by-particle basis to create your physical life. Look around you. Everything you see in our physical world started as an idea, an idea that grew as it was shared and expressed, until it grew enough into a physical object through a number of steps. You literally become what you think about most. Your life becomes what you have imagined and believed in most. The world is literally your mirror, enabling you to experience in the physical plane what you hold as your truth … until you change it. Quantum physics shows us that the world is not the hard and unchangeable thing it may appear to be. Instead, it is a very fluid place continuously built up using our individual and collective thoughts. What we think is true is really an illusion, almost like a magic trick. Fortunately we have begun to uncover the illusion and most importantly, how to change it. What is your body made of? Nine systems comprise the human body including Circulatory, Digestive, Endocrine, Muscular, Nervous, Reproductive, Respiratory, Skeletal, and Urinary. What are those made up of? Tissues and organs. What are tissues and organs made of? Cells. What are cells made of? Molecules. What are molecules made of? Atoms. What are atoms made of? Sub-atomic particles. What are subatomic particles made of? Energy! You and I are pure energy-light in its most beautiful and intelligent configuration. Energy that is constantly changing beneath the surface and you control it all with your powerful mind. You are one big stellar and powerful Human Being. If you could see yourself under a powerful electron microscope and conduct other experiments on yourself, you would see that you are made up of a cluster of ever-changing energy in the form of electrons, neutrons, photons and so on. So is everything else around you. Quantum physics tells us that it is the act of observing an object that causes it to be there where and how we observe it. An object does not exist independently of its observer! So, as you can see, your observation, your attention to something, and your intention, literally creates that thing. This is scientific and proven. Your world is made of spirit, mind and body. Each of those three, spirit, mind and body, has a function that is unique to it and not shared with the other. What you see with your eyes and experience with your body is the physical world, which we shall call Body. Body is an effect, created by a cause. This cause is Thought. Body cannot create. It can only experience and be experienced … that is its unique function. Thought cannot experience … it can only make up, create and interpret. It needs a world of relativity (the physical world, Body) to experience itself. Spirit is All That Is, that which gives Life to Thought and Body. Body has no power to create, although it gives the illusion of power to do so. This illusion is the cause of much frustration. Body is purely an effect and has no power to cause or create. The key with all of this information is how do you learn to see the universe differently than you do now so that you can manifest everything you truly desire.

Deer in Bar Harbor

I went down to Bar Harbor Wednesday to help my son work on his sailboat. While waiting for him to arrive, I took a short path out back and two does and this young buck came withing 30" of me. They seemed to be as curious about me as I was about them. We spent about 15 minutes together.

Kenduskeag Stream in Summer

The Kenduskeag Stream is within walking distance of my house. I've been fishing and swimming here this summer. At other times, I just enjoy walking along the shore. This is in the middle of the city of Bangor, and there is a big canoe race down here every spring. While I enjoyed Arizona and am grateful for my time there, I am happy to be back in Maine.

Reversing Desertification

This is a totally surprising answer to climate change, global warming, and desertification of much of our planet. It also fits in nicely with the GAPS diet. One thing that has bothered me about eating more meat has been the notion that a vegetarian diet is more sustainable for our overpopulated earth. This shows that to be false.

Myofunctional Therapy

This is a very informative video which discusses an aspect of health I've not seen anywhwere else.

Move to Maine.

I have spent the last 31 years in Tucson, but have relocated back to Maine where I grew up. I arrived at Bangor in December, and was here in time to experience this blizzard in February. These photos show the house where I am living during the storm which gave us 20" of snow. I have enjoyed my time in Tucson, and will keep my connections to the beautiful state of Arizona, but it feels right to be back home. I am going to continue to call this blog Tidbits from Tucson until I am inspired to change it.

Dr Mercola interviews Dr Stephen Sinatra about grounding or earthing. He has other videos in which he interviews Clint Ober who pioneered research on earthing. Clint is a wonerful, creative person and deserves out gratitude for the work he has done. His videos are slow, and he is not easy to follow unless you are really into the information. Dr Sinatra is probably a better introduction, and a much easier listen.
The basic concept is that we evolved to be electronically connected to the earth, and all of our ancestors lived a grounded life. With modern shoes, building construction, auto design, and so on; we have largely insulated ourselves from our connection with the earth. There are many health benefits to reestablishing our grounded connection to the earth. I encourage you to investigat this further.

Thrive-The Movie

This film leaves out some important information, and I'm not sure they have the solutions; but their analysis of how we are manipulated is the best I have seen. This helps put things into a broader perspective as we head into the elections.

This is a link to a website showing sound as holographic form. Play the notes on the Cyma Piano, and watch the videos for each. The Bible says that God created the Cosmos with the Word/Sound. The Kabala elaborates on that theme with its sacred words/sounds. In the east, they use mantra to create/form reality. Science is just catching up to ancient knowledge. It is cool though. http://www.cymascope.com/cyma_research/musicology.html

Purpose Gives Courage

Perhaps some of you have always had a sense of purpose for your life, but I relate to this because I have lived both sides. I have experienced being lost without purpose, and felt the difference it makes when you find meaning.
