World Tree - An Axis Mundi

File:Tree of life SVG.svg
The World Tree is a motif present in several religions and mythologies, particularly Indo-European religions. The world tree is represented as a colossal tree which supports the heavens, thereby connecting the heavens, the earth, and, through its roots, the underground. It may also be strongly connected to the motif of the tree of life.
This axis mundi (also cosmic axis, world axis, world pillar, columna cerului, center of the world) is an ubiquitous symbol that crosses human cultures. The image expresses a point of connection between sky and earth where the four compass directions meet. At this point travel and correspondence is made between higher and lower realms. Communication from lower realms may ascend to higher ones and blessings from higher realms may descend to lower ones and be disseminated to all. The spot functions as the omphalos (navel), the world's point of beginning.
The axis mundi image appears in every region of the world and takes many forms. The image is both feminine (an umbilical providing nourishment) and masculine (a phallus providing insemination into a uterus). It may have the form of a natural object (a mountain, a tree, a vine, a stalk, a column of smoke or fire) or a product of human manufacture (a staff, a tower, a ladder, a staircase, a maypole, a cross, a steeple, a rope, a totem pole, a pillar, a spire). Its proximity to heaven may carry implications that are chiefly religious (pagoda, temple mount, church) or secular (obelisk, minaret, lighthouse, rocket, skyscraper). The image appears in religious and secular contexts.[5] The axis mundi symbol may be found in cultures utilizing shamanic practices or animist belief systems, in major world religions, and in technologically advanced "urban centers." As Mircea Eliade observed: "Every Microcosm, every inhabited region, has a Centre; that is to say, a place that is sacred above all."

Archeologists Discover Strange Elongated Skulls in Russia

The risks of believing that the Mayan calendar ends December 21, 2012!

by Carl Johan Calleman
Do not think that it is an accident that we do not hear of the October 28, 2011 date in public media.

The proposal of the December 21, 2012 date is based on the unproven belief that the precessional cycle actually means something for human evolution, and, amazingly, as far as I know no one advocating this end date seems to have even bothered to try to prove this basic assumption. In contrast, the October 28, 2011 date is based on massive scientific evidence that the Nine Underworlds and Thirteen Heavens known from ancient Mayan sources indeed describe cosmic evolution in all of its aspects. Moreover, while there is extensive evidence that the Maya based prophecy and prediction on shifts between baktuns, katuns, tuns etc, not a single ancient Mayan text mentions the 26,000 year precessional cycle.
Before going into the more practical consequences of adhering to the evidence-based or a belief-based interpretation of the Mayan calendar I however think that it is necessary to discuss the nature of time and what it is that makes the Mayan calendar special. It is in other words important to know whether we have any reason to concern ourselves with the Mayan calendar in the first place. Why is it that unlike all other calendars the Mayan calendar has an end date? The answer to this is that the Mayan calendar expresses an entirely different kind of time than other calendars. Most calendars, such as the Gregorian, Muslim, Buddhist or Jewish calendars, are based on astronomical cycles and reflect continuous time. They describe measurable mechanic time, the aspect of time that the Greek would call Chronos, which is also the only one that is recognized in the modern world. Since astronomical cycles, whether they are cycles of the moon, the earth or the precessional cycle, will continue over the next billions of years or so there is however no reason that calendars based on them should ever come to an end. Since the Mayan calendar however has an end date this must obviously be based on another type of time than mechanical time and its end date must be discussed against the background of consciousness-based time – what the Greek would call Kairos and so we must ask what could be the origin of this.
If we go back to ancient sources to find out information about the origin of the Mayan Long Count they never say that this would be based on any astronomical cycle. Instead, the Mayan sources, for instance at the Temple of the Inscriptions in Palenque, explicitly say that the Long Count is based on the World Tree or what other cultures usually refer to as the Tree of Life.
Mayan time is in fact quantized and describes different quantum states of the Cosmic Tree of Life. It is always against the background of such quantum shifts in time, and not continuously flowing astronomical cycles, we may understanding the defining moments of our lives, but also of human civilizations. The Cosmic Tree of Life at the center of our universe behind these quantum shifts was discovered by modern science only in 2003. Yet, the fact that it is real, and not a mere symbol or myth, calls for a revolution in how we view our whole existence.

The Mayan New Dawn

The Mayan Calendar by Ian Lungold

Benjamin Fulford Blog -7.10.2009

·The Japanese arrested with $134.5 billion had papers signed by Bernanke, Greenspan.
The two “Japanese” (one is Philippino and the other Chinese) arrested in Italy recently with $134.5 billion worth of US Treasury certificates were also carrying a series of documents signed by the likes of Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke. They themselves are innocent and were released immediately because they were carrying genuine diplomatic passports. Attached, a picture of the documents they were carrying.
According to the official story put out to the corporate media, the Treasuries were forgeries (no doubt they will say the same about the documents pictured here) but if that is the case, why were the people carrying the “forgeries” immediately released?
The truth is the Treasury certificates they carried were legitimate and are now in the safe hands of the managers of the new financial system. The money will be used to finance part of a Marshall plan aimed at ending war, poverty and environmental destruction. It will also be used to develop previously forbidden technology. We may see some visible changes as early as next week now that Bernanke’s latest check has bounced but, as mentioned before, things could drag on to the September 30th -secret fiscal year end- and possibly a bit beyond that date. The information above comes from very highly placed sources.

Real-time control of wheelchairs with brain waves

·A new signal processing technology for brain machine interface (BMI) application.
The BSI-TOYOTA Collaboration Center (BTCC; Hidenori Kimura, Director), has succeeded in developing a system which utilizes one of the fastest technologies in the world, controlling a wheelchair using brain waves in as little as 125 milliseconds (one millisecond, or ms, is equal to 1/1000 seconds).
Recently technological developments in the area of brain machine interface (BMI) have received much attention. Such systems allow elderly or handicapped people to interact with the world through signals from their brains, without having to give voice commands.
BTCC's new system fuses RIKEN's blind signal separation and space-time-frequency filtering technology to allow brain-wave analysis in as little as 125 ms, as compared to several seconds required by conventional methods. Brain-wave analysis results are displayed on a panel so quickly that drivers do not sense any delay. The system has the capacity to adjust itself to the characteristics of each individual driver, and thereby is able to improve the efficiency with which it senses the driver's commands. Thus the driver is able to get the system to learn his/her commands (forward/right/left) quickly and efficiently. The new system has succeeded in having drivers correctly give commands to their wheelchairs. An accuracy rate of 95% was achieved, one of the highest in the world.
So far the research has centered on brain waves related to imaginary hand and foot control. However, through further measurement and analysis it is anticipated that this system may be applied to other types of brain waves generated by various mental states and emotions.

La UE va a revisar las normas de descargas de Internet

·Pretende crear unas nuevas que faciliten a los usuarios acceder a música y películas sin recurrir a la piratería.
La Unión Europea necesita nuevas normas para las descargas de Internet que faciliten a los usuarios acceder a música y películas sin recurrir a la piratería, dijo el jueves la responsable de las telecomunicaciones del bloque.
Al delimitar las prioridades del brazo ejecutivo de la UE para los próximos cinco años, la comisaria de Telecomunicaciones de la UE, Viviane Reding, dijo que estudiará nuevas leyes que reconcilien los intereses de la propiedad intelectual y de los navegantes de Internet. "Por tanto será mi principal prioridad trabajar ... en un sencillo marco legal para el consumo amigable de acceso al contenido digital en el mercado único de Europa, al mismo tiempo que se garantiza una justa remuneración a los creadores", dijo en un seminario.
"La piratería en Internet parecen convertirse en algo cada vez más atractivo, en particular para los 'nativos digitales'."
"La creciente piratería en Internet es un voto de censura a los existentes modelos de negocio y soluciones legales [pero no sólo a eso!]. Debería ser una llamada de atención para los legisladores [Y lo es! Pero también a la industria, a los intermediarios, a los productores de contenido a ...]."
La comisaria dijo que otra de sus prioridades era agilizar la digitalización de libros[!!!], con un 90% de libros digitalizados en las bibliotecas europeas. La Comisión también deberá fomentar los pagos a través de móviles al proponer reglas comunes para ellos. "La falta de unos criterios y normas comunes de la UE para el 'pago por móvil' ('m-cash') deja sin explotar el gran potencial del 'comercio por móvil' (m-comercio) en el Internet móvil", dijo [Ajajá! Esta comisaria de Telecomunicaciones sabe mucho de los 'potenciales sin exlotar' de diversas formas de cobro. ¿A quién representa? Recordad: el comisario de telecos ES un cargo público...]

Amelia Andersdotter, número dos del Partido Pirata sueco, divulga su ideario en barcelona

·Aboga por el libre intercambio de archivos en internet.
Esta joven de 21 años ocupó el número dos en la candidatura del Partido Pirata sueco a las elecciones europeas y estos días ha sido invitada por el Virtual European Parliament (un consorcio de investigación en el que participan el i2CAT y la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) para divulgar en Barcelona el ideario de su fuerza política: acotar al máximo los derechos de autor, eliminar todo tipo de patentes, proteger la intimidad en el entorno digital...
«En España los votos se reparten sobre todo entre dos partidos. En Suecia, entre siete. Eso ofrece más posibilidades de conquistar un espacio parlamentario. En España, en cambio, los internautas más activos prefieren apostar por el asociacionismo antes que por la política».
«En Suecia, aunque los jueces son más severos en este asunto, la mayoría de artistas suelen ser más neutrales con el libre intercambio de archivos. Saben que no se puede luchar contra internet. Ni siquiera las multinacionales podrán frenar este fenómeno», asegura la joven política, antes de añadir con rotundidad: «Los derechos de autor deben limitarse a cinco años. ¿Por qué tienen que vivir de rentas durante décadas? Si quieren seguir ganando dinero, que hagan otra película u otra canción».
Menos comprensiva se muestra incluso con los gobiernos: «No puede ser que, amparándose en la lucha antiterrorista, accedan a datos privados sin ningún consentimiento».
