In it he said that he had seen the pictures of us in that Look magazine of 1971 and had come to California to look for us. … [Read more...]

The Ocean Level and World Temperature Have Been Rising for 20,000 Years.

Google “Doggerland.” Look at the maps, read the articles about underwater archaeology.At the peak of the last Ice Age, 20,000 years ago, the ocean level was 400 feet lower than now. Europe extended far out into the Atlantic; the British Isles were its highlands. The Rhine and the Thames joined and flowed into the Atlantic. What is now the North Sea was a fertile plain and the home of the earliest civilization. The oldest city now known is under the North Sea, about parallel with Scotland. It … [Read more...]

XVII. Tighter Security Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained; and the restrainer or reason usurps its place and governs the unwilling. And being restrained, it by degrees becomes passive, until it is only the shadow of desire.William Blake “Hello.’“Hey, Bill, it’s Eddie.”“What’s up”“Could you meet me at the GESW admin building?
