Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931), was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon, as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
A video documentary that could change everything you thought you knew about ancient, pre-historical times and how much ancient mythology we have carried into modern times and religious thinking.
Based on more than two decades of systematic research and cross-cultural comparison by comparative mythologist David Talbott reconstructs a cosmic drama when planets hung in the sky close to the earth–an epoch of celestial wonder giving rise to time-honored symbols.
Symbols of an Alien Sky will introduce you to celestial spectacles and earth-shaking events once remembered around the world. Archaic symbols of these events still surround us, some as icons of the world’s great religions, though the origins of the symbols appear to be lost in obscurity.
Cultural history seems fragmented and contradictory. But as demonstrated in this introductory episode, there are also levels of deep agreement between the cultures. According to David Talbott, these “archetypes” allow for a radical reinterpretation of both human and planetary history. Competing regional symbols are aspects of “one story told around the world,” a story both awe inspiring and terrifying.
Comparative mythologist David Talbott has devoted much of his life to identifying the “archetypes” or common mythic themes of cultures around the world. His research has been the primary catalyst behind the “Saturn theory.” Founder and publisher of the ten-issue Pensee magazine series “Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered,” he is the author of The Saturn Myth (Doubleday, 1980) and the founder of AEON: A Journal of Myth and Science. He is the director of Thunderbolts.info and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe.

The U.S. Government is gearing up for a major Preparedness Drill that will simulate a Grid Down Scenario, one that will examine what would happen if the county’s electric grid was taken down by both physical and cyber-attacks.
The threat is very real and is something that we’ve covered in great detail in the past. Our electric grid is extremely vulnerable to an attack that could leave our country in the dark for weeks, maybe even months.
In preparation for this type of attack, our government is going to test the grids vulnerabilities, as thousands of utility workers team up with anti-terrorism experts, Homeland Security, the F.B.I. and other governmental agencies.
On November 13 — 14, 2013, the United States; Canada; and Mexico, along with more than 150 companies and organizations in all three countries, will take part in the GridEx 2013 Preparedness Drill – one of the largest preparedness drills in our country’s history. They will practice for an event unlike anything this country has ever seen, one experts fear is only a matter of time away from happening.
The drill will look at how the three governments react to the loss of the power grid, and a crippled supply chain that would inevitably follow the event.
Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera.
Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
These experiments were performed by Hans Jenny in the 1960s. Here he vibrates Lycopodium,(a fine powder which is actually the spores of a club moss) using audible sound. The powder rises up from the surface of the taut rubber membrane, and creates a variety of amazing phenomena. At certain frequencies, it even assumes a circulatory pattern above the surface of the membrane, both generated and contained by the force field of the sound pulsations.
On September 19, 2013, an underwater pyramidal structure was identified at a depth of 40 meters off the coast of Terceira Island during a recreational trip by a private yacht owner, Diocleciano Silva. The pyramid is estimated to be approximately 60 meters high and was identified by GPS digital technology.
The pyramid is perfectly shaped and apparently oriented by the cardinal directions
Archeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archeological Research (APIA) have identified archeological evidence on the Azorean archipelago that supports their belief that human occupation of the Azores predates the arrival of the Portuguese by many thousands of years, possibly even of a Carthaginian or Atlantean civilization.

The Archipelago of the Azores is composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, and is located about 1,500 km west of Lisbon and about 1,900 km southeast of Newfoundland. Wikipedia
A fresh talk emphasizing the challenge of artistic creation sponsored by the Carnegie Museum of Art, 1990.
“The break between abstract expressionism and what preceded it was the most radical break in American art in this century. Abstract expressionism actually carried us into a confrontation with what the quantum physicists were telling us, that the universe is field upon field of integrated vibration, that there is no top level, there is no bottom level, that the ordinary structures of provisional space-time are simply that; if we can rise out of the human dimension then we discover these larger, more integrated dimensions where mind and nature actually somehow interpenetrate each other.”
Brien Foerster brings us more evidence of ancient high technology in Egypt from his recent travels to the site of Abusir with Yousef Awyan (Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism). Machined tool marks, core drilling and exquisite craftsmanship well outside the realms of what is possible with copper chisels and ropes.
Santos Bonacci lives in Melbourne, Australia. He is a producer of video lectures and special DVDs, hosts a weekly television and radio shows. For over 30 years Santos Bonacci has been researching the ancient works (The Holy Science), compiling and translating them to more accessible terms. Santos is without a doubt one the premier researchers in the study of astrotheology. He brings together all the fields of knowledge and wisdom showing the interrelatedness of all subjects “Syncretism”. In his investigations Santos shows how “Syncretism” is the opposite of division and disunity and covers all the topics like theology, astrotheology, natural science, astrology, reclaiming dominion, breaking the fictions of religion, science and law. Santos presents “The Holy Science” as an ancient science based on the workings of the solar system, which is the science of “as above so below”. These sciences enable one to develop wisdom and enlightenment far beyond what this world currently has to offer.
