Do you take the time to really 'live"? by weakmagneto on March 24th, 2012, 2:59 pm
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprises him most about "humanity", answered "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present nor the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies never having really lived."

It took a close call for me to wake up and realize that my priorities and goals needed to change. I was a work-a-holic who focused on achieving my professional goals and to provide a comfortable life for my children and I. I was successful and ambitious.

One day, I got very ill. So ill that I had to be hospitalized. When I was in the hospital, I was told that I had a serious condition that could result in death. I was told to "get my affairs in order".

It was at that point when I looked back and began to reflect on my life. I...

OK, back to Alice's mission. Her plan has changed a little and she will now first stop in the region of Alpha-C (AC) for some observations. It is way too late to achieve the rocket braking at the original very low (0.075g) acceleration, so Alice asked her INS computer to get them into a 'parking' orbit at a more comfortable 1g retro-burn. Her INS and my trusted spreadsheet 'know' that at -1g, it will take 0.69 years to get the coasting ship to zero velocity relative to Bob, and that it must start to brake 0.2 lyrs (on their rotated map) short of the parking position. At just over 11 years into her mission, Alice comes to rest in Bob's spacetime structure again.

During the 0.69 years of deceleration, Alice's tilted structure has gradually rotated back to align with Bob's structure once again. While their structures were at an angle to each other, space and time were different for them. Here is a summary of the space and time accounting columns:

Stage/event _______ T_Bob yr __ D_Bob lyr...

Who do I believe Jesus is? by Anonymous on January 27th, 2011, 5:47 am
Do you want my truthful answer?
The roots of Christianity are also found in a Egyptian religion founded circa (5000?) years before Christianity came to be, the son of “god” at that time was to be considered Horus.
This is a familiar theme, there are several stories pretty much exactly the same as Christianity that are dated before the Judaeo-Christian faith came to be.
To me, Jesus is nothing more than a variable for the ultimatum of energies physical form. I do not recognize any god as different, just humanity has given each religion their own interpretation of coping with existence.
Humans require someway to cope with the lack of understanding for our existence, and instead of understanding the difference in our subjective reality and our objective reality.
Objective-reality is unknown, its the true world, we have no 100% proven understanding to our existence. But people modify it into something they can define with words and that’s what we live in, some subjective reality.
I do not h...

Permaculture - Vine Tree Farm by Anonymous on May 8th, 2009, 1:44 pm
This blog concerns the farm I moved into last August. After a hectic few months renovating part of our main building as a holiday cottage (we have a mortgage to pay) I can now pay attention to the land itself: 62 acres, Gloucestershire, England, which I am setting up as a forest farm on permaculture principles.

Since I'm still in the first year, a lot of what I'm doing right now is planning and evaluation; walking the land to see what is already actually growing, what is the soil pH? what are the various microclimates on the site? etc.

As time goes on, I'll add in a bit of "the story so far".... but here's the entry for today
