 Of course they did! The statement means nothing so it can be co-opted to 
support anything you like.
 

 I had it explained to me by our raja, he said that what you do is close your 
eyes and look inwards at your self and it will tell you if something is 
right. I always that that was called desire or even just agreeing with yourself 
and didn't know why the TMO gave it a special name but it's like that with a 
lot of kooky spiritual stuff, makes them think they have better life skills 
than the rest of us.
 

 The example he used on me was astrology, when I told I thought it was a crock 
he said he wondered about it too until he looked at his self and found he 
agreed with himself. (?)
 

 Maybe we should do that with 9/11 conspiracies and see how the self guides 
us. LOL.

 They had to find a way of excusing Lynchees habits, so they claimed it was

  He is probably typical American pitta-kapha and kapha dominant too much of

tantra guru probably would not have have died of congestive heart failure if he 
had not quit smoking.  He immediately put on weight when he quit.  I also think 
that people who are kapha will be less likely get emphysema from smoking as 
that tends to happen more with vata types.
 
 Creative people often fight with having a creative mindset and being able to 
act on it.  For instance a lot of jazz musicians were bright people who easily 
learned their instruments and music theory but a bit too high strung to play 
well without some help from drugs (or some meditation).

 You would have been well advised not to use RationalWiki which skeptics 
don't even like.  Those of us who think there is something more to a case than 
reported don't call ourselves conspiracy theorists.  That term has come about 
and used by PSYOPS to discredit us since the JFK assassination which I don't 
think Oswald had anything to do with because he had a cheap gun and was seen in 
the lunch room at the book depository when the assassination took place.  He 
was a convenience patsy due to his activities.  If Ruby had not shot him it 
might have come out that he got framed.
 

 Jeez, everyone knows Elvis shot JFK. It's hardly news.
 
 Anyone on the right track to solving these crimes who has any visibility such 
as a news reporter often gets offed or suicided.  Some of the nutty stuff you 
will find in conspiracy theorist are PSYOPS trying to poison the well lest 
the truth be known.  Just think if we could prove beyond a doubt that 9-11 was 
indeed an inside job and who the perps were how confidence in our government 
would fall, not that it isn't anyway.  And we have long had little confidence 
in our corporations and banks which these days run like gang operations.
 

 After reading the articles Barry posted I was going to write something about 
how conspiracy theories are probably created by the government to distract 
everyone from what a crap job they actually do at running the country. Be nice 
to think there was someone in power who could organise a job that big, we can't 
even make a computer system to link up health districts without the ministry 
going bankrupt and abandoning it. 
 
 The USA is a very dirty place.  It was that way from it's inception because 
some of the wealthy landowners didn't want their workers to have rights and 
some wanted the US to still be beholding to Britain.  Our democracy is an 
illusion and the king makers hate anyone who points that out.  A lot more 
people would have probably taken to the streets during the Occupy Movement but 
they feared losing their jobs.  We live in a country of increasing have nots, 
people who have lost even their simple pleasures of life because a plan to put 
all but a few in austerity.
 
 So many detractors here seem to have little knowledge of history and just 
react emotionally.  I guess some folks want to live in a simple world of Santy 
Claus and Easter Bunnies.
 
 Both of which are inventions, just like the conspiracies.
 
 
 What worries is me that you have such a disconnect from the people that run 
the US that you actually think they would murder thousands of their own people 
for reasons best known to themselves. 


 
 Whoa, Jack! You're half reading me.  I'm not alleging that our politicians 
conspired to pull off 9-11.  It's a shadow government that many people in the 
US believe exists (and probably many folks in the UK believe about your own 
government).  Killing thousands would rile up Americans (and believe me the 
days following they were insanely riled) to support anything the  government 
asked if it involved retaliation.  So Arab terrorists did 9-11 and we go off 
and bomb Afghanistan and Iraq.  Shouldn't we have bombed Saudi Arabia instead?  
Something wrong with that picture?
 
 BTW, for some reason a lot of people who worked at the WTC were told to stay 
home that day.
 
 There's a kind of movement like that in the UK about the Islamic terrorist 
that blew up some tube trains a decade ago. The story goes that the government 
knew about it but let it happen because it would be an excuse to rachet up the 
anti-terror laws, which completely coincidentally can also be used to harass 
innocent people whenever the state feels like it.





 
 The UK subway bombings indeed smell of a false flag.  These types of 
operations have been around for centuries but I guess that history wasn't your 
favorite subject?
 
 
 
 I don't believe it for the simple fact that however cynical politicians get 
it's their own friends and family that might get blown up. You don't seem to 
have that sort of human link, sure the govt in the US has blood on its hands 
but the 9/11 conspiracies are qualitatively different from interfering in the 
politics of left wing countries or suppressing anti-capitalist demonstrations. 
It isn't a quantitative thing at all.





 
 See my above comment.
 
 
 
 I think it's the conspiracists that react emotionally, something unbelievable 
happens and the dots get joined up irrationally, anything to make it make sense

Your local cop IS A MOTHERFUCKING KILLER wishing for his moment to totally ruin 
someone's life.

And if he isn't, then he's an enabler of a fellow cop who is a sociopathand 
that is just AS BAD.  

Case in point:  I know of an 2007 incident in sleepy little-town FAIRFIELD in 
which a cop TORTURED A ROO for over 12 hours in the presence of the other 
officers.  Not a headline.  (Don't ask for details -- can't out a Roo who 
doesn't want more of the same if he's seen bitching about it in public.  No 
charges, let the guy go the next day.)

But see?  This is the heart of darkness within ALL OF US in Kali Yuga.  Even 
our heroes will be found to be  tilted in this age.  

Even the good guys...consider how the TMO did all it could to subvert the 
legal requirements during the murder at MUM.   Those were saints, right?  
Even inside them was the I get to do whatever shit I want to dynamic.  
Consider Ed Beckeley, Dr. Bloomfield, the commodities groups, the TMO money 
laundering and smuggling, etc.  

Young pundits and anybody from TMO, returning to india, each 
person would be given particular quantity (legal) of gold. 
As soon as the plane lands in india, TMO henchmen would be 
waiting there to collect the gold, load the pundits on to 
the waiting van, and off they go.

So much gold was brought in, that they decided to make 
jewellery and sell the gold. The TMO's finances are so murky 
the you would never have the clear idea what happened to all 
the money.



I have been to 17 countries and saw the same shit everywhere.  Give someone a 
gun and they're looking for game cuz they're on safari, donchaknow.  

To sum:  how many good Americans would be willing to put a tactical nuke inside 
a 9-11 tower?  Almost any cop, any soldier.   Deal with this fact.  It's the 
truth.  Krishna took sattva with Him 5,000 years ago. There's no Arjuna out

All great billionares have said that wealth that came from 
society should go back to society. In that sense the 
economic system should mirror the eco-system.

The point is only capitalism has the capability to actually 
generate wealth. The paradox of communism is that 
disciplined regulated consumpion is neutralized by wasteful 
inefficient production processes.  The paradox of capitalism 
is that efficient production is cancelled out by wasteful 
crass consumerism.

Crass consumerism leads to crass commercialism.

Crass commercialism leads to hyper-exploitation of

My post was not looking to science to validate tantra or mantra shastra or any 
traditional knowledge. 

Just the opposite. My point was a statement of disagreement with the claim of 
rationalists that traditional knowledge consists of only primitive 
superstitions with no foundation (I include a vast array of practices, rituals, 
ceremonies, points of view, customs, processes, lifestyles, diets, medicine, 
exercise, meditation, yoga, chanting, sound, cosmologies,observed correlations 
(beyond the spurious), assumptions about causal factors, etc, across many 
cultures in the term traditional knowledge).

Traditional knowledge has generally undergone a series of vast duration 
longitudinal studies with literally life and death consequences (for 
individuals and entire cultures). Nothing in the social or medical sciences 
have or are able to do anything remotely similar. It is a different type, yet 
in my view quite valid form of research.  That which actually works survives as 
do the cultures that maintain and practice it. 

Thus, it is my view that traditional knowledge in many forms already have some 
proven value. Based on ones needs, inclinations, and resources many forms of 
traditional knowledge are quite worthy of personal investigation and 
experimentation -- that is, does it work for me, does it bring positive value 
to my life (and others.  

Science is like a hammer. Very effective, but it can only hit nails -- and it 
looks for nails to hit -- a small subset of worthy areas of investigation. That 
is, its tools and methods are not yet capable of meaningfully studying many 
aspects of traditional knowledge -- though certainly some useful progress has 
been made. 

For example, the 1000's of studies on traditional herbs.  While only a subset 
are double blind, placebo based studies of significant sample size, a lot of 
fascinating understanding has been uncovered. And such studies at imply that 
there is some there, there.to traditional herbs and more broadly -- though 
more indirectly make other forms of traditional knowledge more plausible -- at 
least worthy of investigation. 

The advances in brain and cognitive science  and related fields over the past 
10 years has been startling. And the progress in methodologies, analysis, 
imaging and other technologies, appears to be accelerating.  Over the next 
10-20 years, many forms of traditional knowledge may be able to be better 
investigated by science -- enhancing both science and the traditions and 
cultures that maintain and teach traditional knowledge.   

But no need to wait for scads of peer reviewed double blind placebo studies to 
begin personal experimentation and validation of many forms of traditional 
knowledge.

cover the unattractive  empty spot. It will be a poster-sized blow up of the

nocturnal rustlings of the folks at FFL he brings his fist down on the table 
just hard enough to make a sound but loud enough to make an impression to suit 
what he is feeling. MJ has met all expectations. Two articles: one on the gum

the dirty oven fiasco of the renting meditator back in the 70’s. Christ! Mary 
mother of God! He just has to reply and reply he does, only to be answered by 
MJ so quickly that Steve thinks he is sitting by his computer waiting to 
pounce. There is a counter response and the two billy goats butt heads for a 
good 15 minutes resulting in a stalemate. Both go away with a headache but 
Steve forgets about it all as he climbs into his car on his way to work. For 
the next 10 hours he will not have a moment to think about FFL but there will 
be plenty of late-night responses Steve will feel compelled to make - compelled 
because it is the source of the biggest laughs he’ll have all day.

Yea, maybe it's like how people get obsessed with things. 

 Look, everyone here is a fan of science.  We get it.
 

 But, we don't then discard our intuition or personal experience with 
something, just because we don't have a scientific study to verify it.
 

 Okay, maybe I am exaggerating a tad, but we really see here, some, who throw

 Bhairitu said: Science knows shit about tantra and mantra shastra.  You're 
looking the wrong way. 
 

 My post was not looking to science to validate tantra or mantra shastra or any 
traditional knowledge. 
 

 Just the opposite. My point was a statement of disagreement with the claim of 
rationalists that traditional knowledge consists of only primitive 
superstitions with no foundation (I include a vast array of practices, rituals, 
ceremonies, points of view, customs, processes, lifestyles, diets, medicine, 
exercise, meditation, yoga, chanting, sound, cosmologies,observed correlations 
(beyond the spurious), assumptions about causal factors, etc, across many 
cultures in the term traditional knowledge).
 

 Traditional knowledge has generally undergone a series of vast duration 
longitudinal studies with literally life and death consequences (for 
individuals and entire cultures). Nothing in the social or medical sciences 
have or are able to do anything remotely similar. It is a different type, yet 
in my view quite valid form of research.  That which actually works survives as 
do the cultures that maintain and practice it. 
 

 Thus, it is my view that traditional knowledge in many forms already have some 
proven value. Based on ones needs, inclinations, and resources many forms of 
traditional knowledge are quite worthy of personal investigation and 
experimentation -- that is, does it work for me, does it bring positive value 
to my life (and others.  
 

 Science is like a hammer. Very effective, but it can only hit nails -- and it 
looks for nails to hit -- a small subset of worthy areas of investigation. That 
is, its tools and methods are not yet capable of meaningfully studying many 
aspects of traditional knowledge -- though certainly some useful progress has 
been made. 
 

 For example, the 1000's of studies on traditional herbs.  While only a subset 
are double blind, placebo based studies of significant sample size, a lot of 
fascinating understanding has been uncovered. And such studies at imply that 
there is some there, there.to traditional herbs and more broadly -- though 
more indirectly make other forms of traditional knowledge more plausible -- at 
least worthy of investigation. 
 

 The advances in brain and cognitive science  and related fields over the past 
10 years has been startling. And the progress in methodologies, analysis, 
imaging and other technologies, appears to be accelerating.  Over the next 
10-20 years, many forms of traditional knowledge may be able to be better 
investigated by science -- enhancing both science and the traditions and 
cultures that maintain and teach traditional knowledge.   
 

 But no need to wait for scads of peer reviewed double blind placebo studies to 
begin personal experimentation and validation of many forms of traditional 
knowledge.
 

 Really nice post.

theirs either by their own logic. We did give them about 24 dollars and some 
beads for Manhattan and perpetual welfare for  next to eternity along with a

NAs, but it was the best that could offered at the time. Had Europeans never

How is it possible for the militants to continue fighting

It appears that the militant rebels in or near Baghdad
are self-sufficient to fight on their own without help

getting food, supplies and ammunition within Baghdad
itself.


I wouldn't be surprised if a secret faction within the ISF is providing the

Without large numbers of American troops on the ground in Iraq,
we lack the ability to choose targets, to rebuild the capacity of
the Iraqi Army quickly and successfully, to constrain the Shiite
government from pursuing a sectarian agenda. Without large numbers
of troops in Syria, we are unable to distinguish between friend

Very cool - I like a lot of the entertainment, and style, from that era (1940's

few, plus the movies, and if you were on TV, you were  automatically an icon.

[FairfieldLife] Sophisticated Pre-Columbian Native American Civilizations and Cultures

2014-10-12 Thread seerd...@yahoo.com [FairfieldLife]
Dixon said: 
 Had Europeans never made it to the Americas, they, NAs, would still be living 
in the stone age today, chasing buffalo herds on foot, living in *harmony* with 
nature, and killing each other over hunting grounds. 
 

 History is written by the victors.  The Newcomers NC]  maintain massive 
simplistic myths about Native Americans civilizations, accomplishments and 
cultures.  
 

 1941 by Charles Mann is a good start -- though being 8 years old does not have 
all of the recent research:
 

   ...what human civilization in the Americas was like before the 
Europeans crashed the party. The history books most Americans were (and still 
are) raised on describe the continents before Columbus as a vast, underused 
territory, sparsely populated by primitives whose cultures would inevitably bow 
before the advanced technologies of the Europeans. For decades, though, among 
the archaeologists, anthropologists, paleolinguists, and others whose 
discoveries Charles C. Mann brings together in 1491, different stories have 
been emerging. ...  the Americas were a far more urban, more populated, and 
more technologically advanced region than generally assumed; and the Indians, 
rather than living in static harmony with nature, radically engineered the 
landscape across the continents, to the point that even timeless natural 
features like the Amazon rainforest can be seen as products of human 
intervention. ...  the most compelling of his eye-opening revisionist stories 
are among the best-founded: the stories of early American-European contact. To 
many of those who were there, the earliest encounters felt more like a meeting 
of equals than one of natural domination. And those who came later and found an 
emptied landscape that seemed ripe for the taking, Mann argues convincingly, 
encountered not the natural and unchanging state of the native American, but 
the evidence of a sudden calamity: the ravages of what was likely the greatest 
epidemic in human history, the smallpox and other diseases introduced 
inadvertently by Europeans to a population without immunity, which swept 
through the Americas faster than the explorers who brought it, and left behind 
for their discovery a land that held only a shadow of the thriving cultures 
that it had sustained for centuries before.  (Amazon)

 I agree with you about schools though, I've no objection to kids learning to 
meditate but TM is such a strong gateway drug it's easy to get swept up in the 
hyperbole, and if you show any sort of keenness that gets put on the database 
and you get invited to donate to pundits and yagyas and all that bull. Some of 
them will even end up bouncing around on their backsides for hours every day.

 Puma Puncu -- Bolivia
 

 • Location: Puma Puncu is part of a large temple complex or monument group 
that is part of the site near Tiwanaku Bolivia, 45 miles west of La Paz high in 
the Andes mountains 
 

 • Description:   Puma Punku is a large temple complex or monument group that 
is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia. 
 At its peak, Pumapunku is thought to have been unimaginably wondrous, adorned 
with polished metal plaques, brightly colored ceramic and fabric ornamentation, 
trafficked by costumed citizens, elaborately dressed priests and elites decked 
in exotic jewelry.  
 Tiwanaku is significant in Inca traditions because it is believed to be the 
site where the world was created.'
 The megalithic stones found here are among the largest on the planet, 
measuring up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 100 tons each.  An  
extensive infrastructure had been developed with a complex irrigation system 
running over 30 square miles (80 km2) to support potatoes, quinoa, corn and 
other various crops. At its peak the Tiwanaku culture dominated the entire Lake 
Titicaca basin as well as portions of Bolivia and Chile. 
 

 • Age: The radiocarbon date of the initial construction of the Pumapunku is 
536–600.The Tiwanaku civilization and the use of these temples appears to some 
to have peaked from 700 to 1000 CE. 
 

 • Population:  the temples and surrounding area may have been home to some 
400,000 people. 
 

 • Engineering:  Surveys using ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, induced 
electrical conductivity, and magnetic susceptibility revealing the presence of 
numerous man-made structures including the wall foundations of buildings and 
compounds, water conduits, pool-like features, revetments, terraces, 
residential compounds, and widespread gravel pavements all of which now lie 
buried and hidden beneath the modern ground’s surface. 
 Notable features at Pumapunku are I-shaped architectural cramps, which are 
composed of a unique copper-arsenic-nickel bronze alloy.that hold the blocks 
comprising the walls and bottom of stone-lined canals that drain sunken courts. 
I-cramps of unknown composition were used to hold together the massive slabs 
that formed Pumapunku's four large platforms. In the south canal of the 
Pumapunku, the I-shaped cramps were cast in place. In sharp contrast, the 
cramps used at the Akapana canal were fashioned by the cold hammering of 
copper-arsenic-nickel bronze ingots.  
 Many of the joints are so precise that not even a razor blade will fit between 
the stones.[10] Much of the masonry is characterized by accurately cut 
rectilinear blocks of such uniformity that they could be interchanged for one 
another while maintaining a level surface and even joints. The blocks were so 
precisely cut as to suggest the possibility of prefabrication and mass 
production, technologies far in advance of the Tiwanaku’s Inca successors 
hundreds of years later.[9] Tiwanaku engineers were also adept at developing a 
civic infrastructure at this complex, constructing functional irrigation 
systems, hydraulic mechanisms, and waterproof sewage lines.
 

 • Architecture:  Puma Puncu was a large earthen platform mound with three 
levels of stone retaining walls thought to have resembled a square. Foundations 
often fitting stones directly to bedrock or digging precise trenches and 
carefully filling them with layered sedimentary stones to support and sustain 
the weight of these massive structures of large stone blocks. The largest of 
these stone blocks is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters 
thick, and is estimated to weigh about 131 metric tons. The second largest 
stone block found within the Pumapunku is 7.90 metres (25.9 feet) long, 2.50 
metres (8 feet 2 inches) wide, and averages 1.86 metres (6 feet 1 inch) thick. 
Its weight has been estimated to be 85.21 metric tons. 
 Based upon detailed petrographic and chemical analyses of samples from both 
individual stones and known quarry sites, archaeologists concluded that these 
and other red sandstone blocks were transported up a steep incline from a 
quarry near Lake Titicaca roughly 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) away. Smaller 
andesite blocks that were used for stone facing and carvings came from quarries 
within the Copacabana Peninsula about 90 kilometres (56 miles) away from and 
across Lake Titicaca from the Pumapunku and the rest of the Tiwanaku Site. In 
assembling the walls of Pumapunku, each stone was finely cut to interlock with 
the surrounding stones and the blocks fit together like a puzzle, forming 
load-bearing joints without the use of mortar. 
 One common engineering technique involves cutting the top of the lower stone 
at a certain angle, and placing another stone on top of it which was cut at the 
same angle.[4] The precision with which these angles have been utilized to 
create flush joints is indicative of a highly sophisticated knowledge of 
stone-cutting and a thorough

 The Pyramid one for instance starts with a lecture about not waiting for 
authority to disclose things but finding them out for yourself. And then asks 
you to take his word for it! The following babble is unbelievably clueless, 
talk of using sound to hover blocks of stone, battling alien races (where did 
they go and why did they leave no trace?) and worldwide slave labour! All to 
solve what isn't really a mystery - the pyramids weren't built with slaves and 
the stone was quarried nearby in the usual fashion with bronze axes and 
chisels, loads of which are lying around still.
 

 Pervading it all is this same elite smugness that I see with the 9/11 
truthers. That only they know the truth and you are stupid sheeple for 
believing the authorities version of what happened. They never finish the 
sentence by saying we should follow their authority instead. And a highly 
unorthodox and impossible to verify one at that.
 

 I always found it insulting to our ancestors that we can't credit them with 
enough wherewithal to build a few huge monuments, I know it's a backhanded 
compliment but it does us no credit to assume that just because we couldn't get 
organisation like that together there's no way they could have, we didn't have 
the sort of devotional society they had. They may not even have had minds that 
worked in the same way as us. 
 

 Whatever the RV'ers daydream, the pyramids were built by humans. Don't let 
other people do your thinking for you, Brown's claim that the smart people in 
the military don't abandon things that don't work is correct, which is why they 
stopped research with these guys in the first place, and that was just for 
stuff they were looking for in Afghanistan, these guys are talking about things 
that happened decades or millennia ago and just taking the visions as fact! 
 

 His smugness and conviction might distract some from the fact there is no 
corroborating evidence but that's the first thing I look for when faced with a 
revolutionary idea. So I'll wait till someone digs up some of the aliens that 
allegedly helped or anything that shows that people couldn't have done it 
unaided but we already know they did! I remain unconvinced.

 Description: Cahokia was the largest and most influential urban settlement in 
the Mississippian culture which developed advanced societies across much of 
what is now the central and southeastern United States, beginning more than 500 
years before European contact.  Cahokia was the largest urban center north of 
the great Mesoamerican cities in Mexico. 
 

 http://www.legendsofamerica.com/photos-illinois/CahokiaMounds-old.jpg 
http://www.legendsofamerica.com/photos-illinois/CahokiaMounds-old.jpg

 

 Location: Cahokia is located on the site of a pre-Columbian Native American 
city (c. 600–1400 CE) situated directly across the Mississippi River from 
modern St. Louis, Missouri. The existing park covers about 3.5 square miles, 
and contains about 80 mounds, but the ancient city was actually much larger.  
At its peak, Cahokia covered about six square miles and included about 120 
human-made earthen mounds in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and functions.

  Population:  Cahokia's population at its peak in the 1200s would not be 
surpassed by any city in the United States until the late 18th century.  
Although it was home to only about 1,000 people before c. 1050, its population 
grew explosively after that date. Archaeologists estimate the city's population 
at between 6,000 and 40,000 at its peak, with more people living in outlying 
farming villages that supplied the main urban center. If the highest population 
estimates are correct, Cahokia was larger than any subsequent city in the 
United States until the 1780s, when Philadelphia's population grew beyond 
40,000.
 

 Age: Although there is some evidence of Late Archaic period (approximately 
1200 BCE) occupation in and around the site,[6] Cahokia as it is now defined 
was settled around 1200 CE during the Late Woodland period. 
  
 Metallurgy: 1950s by archaeologist Greg Perino found the only known copper 
workshop to be found at a Mississippian site. The area contains the remains of 
three tree stumps thought to have been used to hold anvil stones. Analysis of 
copper found during excavations showed that it had been annealed, a technique 
involving repeatedly heating and cooling the metal as it is worked, such as 
blacksmiths do with iron.

 Engineering: Excavation on the top of Monks Mound has revealed evidence of a 
large building, likely a temple or the residence of the paramount chief, which 
would have been seen throughout the city. This building was about 105 ft (32 m) 
long and 48 feet (15 m) wide, and could have been as much as 50 ft (15 m) high. 
It was about 5,000 sq ft (460 m2).
 A large plaza located adjacent to Monks Mound was a place where games and 
public rituals took place. 
 In one of the earliest large-scale construction projects, the site had been 
expertly and deliberately leveled and filled by the city's inhabitants. It is 
part of the sophisticated engineering displayed throughout the site. The Grand 
Plaza covered roughly 50 acres (20 ha) and measured over 1,600 ft (490 m) in 
length by over 900 ft (270 m) in width. Along with the Grand Plaza to the 
south, three other very large plazas surround Monks Mound in the cardinal 
directions to the east, west, and north. The high-status district of Cahokia 
was surrounded by a long palisade that was equipped with protective bastions.

2014-10-12 Thread seerd...@yahoo.com [FairfieldLife]
I believe he said We are against it (not to say that he did not also say your 
quote).  

 Being against it to me is far richer in meaning, funnier, and to me 
characterizes his style of communication.  He spoke with different levels of 
meaning, with double (and triple) entendre (not sexual in instances that I 
heard).  His quip was funny, decoupling his words  from esoteria suitable for 
their focus on modern educated audiences, yet still conveying (what I believe) 
he meant.   
 

 Being against it means he was promoting a method (in his mind) that made 
reincarnation unnecessary.  If asked if he believed in the existance any 
curable disease, a witty doctor might say the same. 
 

 This is instructive (to me) -- a message that his, and any teacher's words 
need to be carefully parsed, not over generalized, viewed in its specific 
context and for what audience, don't assume its the full teach or truth being 
conveyed, and most importantly, loosen up, let your sense of humor blossom 
(more).
 

 His is I believe the traditional view that the seeds of reincarnation (the 
vast mountain of karma -- both the small chunk bitten off in this life 
(prarabdha karma) as well as the remainder of the huge yet to be dealt with 
(sanchita karma) are burned by the fires of knowledge (from Gita). 
 

 (And personally I do not count anything M said as authoritative. Nor that of 
(much) of any teacher or source of knowledge (or words). But for me, he did 
provide some useful starting points for personal investigation and validation.)
 

 Quick aside: paraphrasing an early day's conversation: 
 M: we all have a mountain of karma.
 CLutes (apparently believing he was quite far along on the path): M, do I 
have a mountain of karma?
 M: You Charlie have more like a huge mountain range.
 

 What are the fires of knowledge? A number of possibilities, not necessarily 
mutually exclusive: 
 understanding and knowledge, 
 transcending,  
 kundalini rising and burning all latent samskaras in the chakras, culminating 
in the blooming of the crown chakra, 
 grace of a fully realized teacher, 
 grace of the divine
 other stuff

 

 And does no reincarnation mean no more individuality after the body drops? 
 

 (And my position is at least sympathetic with uber atheist Sam Harris who said 
in a funny quip, at a conference on death ( or something) with speakers across 
a full spectrum of views, paraphrasing The key thing is we will all dance 
around the question and weave greatly nuanced and intricate answers, but the 
bottom line is none of us know what really happens when the physical body 
dies. 
 

 Reincarnation in human form does not preclude continuation of inner evolution 
in many astral and causal planes (Autobio of Yogi has good discussion of this).
 

 And is Moksha / Liberation (that is, all Sanchita Karma (the whole range, the 
big enchilada) is burned / roasted)  the same as enlightenment?  I suggest 
Liberation is the ultimate real thing, with a clear criteria. Enlightenment, at 
what ever stage, not so much. That is not to discount the freedom and 
contentment of any such stages and states.

Bhairitu said: Science knows shit about tantra and mantra shastra. 
You're looking the wrong way. 



My post was not looking to science to validate tantra or mantra 
shastra or any traditional knowledge.


Just the opposite. My point was a statement of disagreement with the 
claim of rationalists that traditional knowledge consists of only 
primitive superstitions with no foundation (I include a vast array of 
practices, rituals, ceremonies, points of view, customs, processes, 
lifestyles, diets, medicine, exercise, meditation, yoga, chanting, 
sound, cosmologies,observed correlations (beyond the spurious), 
assumptions about causal factors, etc, across many cultures in the 
term traditional knowledge).


Traditional knowledge has generally undergone a series of vast 
duration longitudinal studies with literally life and death 
consequences (for individuals and entire cultures). Nothing in the 
social or medical sciences have or are able to do anything remotely 
similar. It is a different type, yet in my view quite valid form of 
research.  That which actually works survives as do the cultures that 
maintain and practice it.


Thus, it is my view that traditional knowledge in many forms already 
have some proven value. Based on ones needs, inclinations, and 
resources many forms of traditional knowledge are quite worthy of 
personal investigation and experimentation -- that is, does it work 
for me, does it bring positive value to my life (and others.


Science is like a hammer. Very effective, but it can only hit nails -- 
and it looks for nails to hit -- a small subset of worthy areas of 
investigation. That is, its tools and methods are not yet capable of 
meaningfully studying many aspects of traditional knowledge -- though 
certainly some useful progress has been made.


For example, the 1000's of studies on traditional herbs.  While only a 
subset are double blind, placebo based studies of significant sample 
size, a lot of fascinating understanding has been uncovered. And such 
studies at imply that there is some there, there.to traditional 
herbs and more broadly -- though more indirectly make other forms of 
traditional knowledge more plausible -- at least worthy of investigation.


The advances in brain and cognitive science  and related fields over 
the past 10 years has been startling. And the progress in 
methodologies, analysis, imaging and other technologies, appears to be 
accelerating.  Over the next 10-20 years, many forms of traditional 
knowledge may be able to be better investigated by science -- 
enhancing both science and the traditions and cultures that maintain 
and teach traditional knowledge.


But no need to wait for scads of peer reviewed double blind placebo 
studies to begin personal experimentation and validation of many forms 
of traditional knowledge.

I don't know if Billy, you hijacked the thread or not but reincarnation 
is for the ignorant is a typical Indian belief.  I wasn't even aware of 
it until I saw a Nat Geo or Discover channel documentary on funerals in 
different countries and they covered the burning ghats in Varanasi which 
I've seen. They mentioned that people come there to be cremated so they 
don't reincarnate but gurus aren't allowed because they gurus to come 
back and keep teaching.  Weird uh?

 Lucy Film Hinges on Brain Capacity Myth
 By Kate Wong | July 25, 2014 |  2 
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/2014/07/25/lucy-film-hinges-on-brain-capacity-myth/#respond
 The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of 
Scientific American.
 
  
 
 Scarlett Johansson plays a woman who unlocks her brain power in the movie 
Lucy. Image: Universal Pictures
 On July 25, French film writer/director Luc Besson’s action thriller Lucy 
opens in theaters nationwide. The premise is that the title character, played 
by Scarlett Johansson, is exposed to a drug that unlocks her mind, giving her 
superhuman powers of cognition.  Themovie production notes  
http://www.lucymovie.com/pdf/lucy_production_notes.pdf[PDF] elaborate:
 “…It has long been hypothesized that human beings only use a small percentage 
of our cerebral capacity at any given time. For centuries, speculative science 
has postulated what would occur if mankind could actually evolve past that 
limit. Indeed, what would happen to our consciousness and newfound abilities if 
every region of the brain was concurrently active? If each one of the 86 
billion densely packed neurons in a human brain fired at once, could that 
person become, in fact, superhuman?”
 The notion that we humans have massive reserves of gray matter just sitting 
there waiting to be summoned into service has obvious appeal, but there is no 
scientific evidence to support it. And what’s odd about Besson’s reliance on 
this myth is that, according to the production notes, he allegedly set out to 
make the storyline scientifically plausible:
 “Although Besson believed that the idea of expanding one’s brain capacity made 
for tremendous action-thriller material, he was particularly intent on 
grounding—at least in part—Lucy in scientific fact.”
 Apparently he missed or ignored the many scientists who would have surely 
informed him that the idea that we use only a small portion of our brain (10 
percent, the story usually goes) is wrong. As Barry L. Beyerstein of the Brain 
Behavior Laboratory at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver explained 
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/do-we-really-use-only-10/ in a piece 
for Scientific American:
 “…the brain, like all our other organs, has been shaped by natural selection. 
Brain tissue is metabolically expensive both to grow and to run, and it strains 
credulity to think that evolution would have permitted squandering of resources 
on a scale necessary to build and maintain such a massively underutilized 
organ. Moreover, doubts are fueled by ample evidence from clinical neurology. 
Losing far less than 90 percent of the brain to accident or disease has 
catastrophic consequences. What is more, observing the effects of head injury 
reveals that there does not seem to be any area of the brain that can be 
destroyed by strokes, head trauma, or other manner, without leaving the patient 
with some kind of functional deficit. Likewise, electrical stimulation of 
points in the brain during neurosurgery has failed so far to uncover any 
dormant areas where no percept, emotion or movement is elicited by applying 
these tiny currents….”
 Neither do we regularly use only a little bit of the brain at a time, as 
science writer Robynne Boyd reported 
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/do-people-only-use-10-percent-of-their-brains/
 in a piece for Scientific American. She quoted neurologist Barry Gordon of the 
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine:
 “”It turns out though, that we use virtually every part of the brain, and that 
[most of] the brain is active almost all the time,” Gordon adds. “Let’s put it 
this way: the brain represents three percent of the body’s weight and uses 20 
percent of the body’s energy.”
 Yet just because we are already using our entire brain does not mean we can’t 
enhance its powers. Exercise and diet can boost cognitive performance 
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/six-ways-to-boost-brainpower/. And 
some researchers think cognitive training can make people smarter 
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/scientists-design-exercises-that-make-you-smarter/.
 As for cognitive-enhancing drugs, the few that are available, such as Ritalin 
and Provigil, are quite the opposite of the compound Lucy is exposed to in the 
film. Rather than stimulating all of the brain’s neurons to sense everything in 
one’s environment, these drugs work to help people zero in. The results are a 
mixed bag, however, as my colleague Gary Stix has observed 
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/2011/12/07/are-we-as-smart-or-dumb-as-we-can-get/:
 “Most of today’s cognitive enhancers improve our ability to focus—but most 
benefits accrue to those with attention deficits. They allow the child with 
ADHD to learn the multiplication tables, but for those with average attention 
spans

 I'm now more interested in psychological studies to find why people get so

 Upset? Not me, I'm investigating it too, or rather I'm checking the claims 
made by people who think they can find answers by looking into the past 
somehow. So far I can't see that that is what they are doing. Are the 9/11 
claims more realistic than the Egyptian ones? With the lack of corroborating 
evidence it seems the only way to agree is if you've decided there is a 
conspiracy of some sort anyway, it's not like there is a measurable standard of 
evidence being used here.
 
 BTW, we're not being smug, just raising questions and trying to make folks 
aware of some things.  The smugness is in your head.
 
 That was an observation not an accusation. But do seem unaware that what you 
have about 9/11 is unproven accusations and not any sort of proof.
 
But the guy in the video is very smug, and very elitist. The whole thing smacks 
of a we are smarter than you because we know this and you stupid people just 
swallow what the 'authorities' tell you. I either agree with Courtney Brown or 
I'm letting other people think for me. I see another choice. 
 

 What all this basically lacks is an explanation of just where the past is 
supposed to be. The second law of thermodynamics tells us it aint there no 
more, so just where these guys go in their heads is beyond me. And there's no 
corroborating evidence for the claims made obviously. And an explanation for 
how it might work, even in linear time, might be nice.
 

 But as I always say, we need to sort the signal from the noise and that will 
take corrobarative evidence, maybe they could point to where something made of 
an alien technology is buried so we could go dig it up? That would be 
convincing. But as it is they are making an argument from personal incredulity 
and should spend a bit more time reading about Egypt before concluding our 
ancestors couldn't have done it all themselves. Egyptologists (the authorities) 
hate the Johnny-come-lately's who stroll onto the Giza plateau and declare 
aliens must have been involved or whatever. 
 

 I wish history was all as easy to understand as RVers claim and this is the 
problem, they claim it's efficient knowledge and better than that gained by 
trained archaeologists. Can you imagine if this sort of thinking took over the 
education system? The internet is where this belongs, and all that that 
entails.. ...
 

 Conclusion: I don't think this is a good place to look if you want answers to 
what you see as the questions about 9/11. Or anything.

there is business establishment I visit nearly every week, and so drive by the 
Cahokia Mounds on that trip. Sometimes my daughter is with me, and we will 
climb it for a bit of exercise. 

 If I go on the weekend, as the road there is populated by Hispanic eateries 
and stores, I will sometimes stop and get something to eat.
 

 On Saturdays, there is a guy who sells trays of fresh fruit, and I always stop 
and get one.
 

 Fresh mango, watermelon, honeydew, pineapple and some other fruits.  Those are 
the fruits I get plus a few pieces of cucumber.  
 

 I tell him I want salt, only on the cucumbers and lime juice on the rest.  
Sometimes he forgets.  Yesterday it was lime juice on everything.
 

 What I still can't get over, is the toppings the Hispanics go for.  
 

 Almost in every case they get cayenne pepper on the fruit, and sometimes I 
think even ketchup.
 

 Or maybe it is a sweet syrup.
 

 Trying to figure that one out.
 

 I'm always trying to pick up some vibe when I drive by the mounds, or climb 
up, but so far nothing has registered.

 Description: Cahokia was the largest and most influential urban settlement in 
the Mississippian culture which developed advanced societies across much of 
what is now the central and southeastern United States, beginning more than 500 
years before European contact.  Cahokia was the largest urban center north of 
the great Mesoamerican cities in Mexico.
 

 http://www.legendsofamerica.com/photos-illinois/CahokiaMounds-old.jpg 
http://www.legendsofamerica.com/photos-illinois/CahokiaMounds-old.jpg

 

 Location: Cahokia is located on the site of a pre-Columbian Native American 
city (c. 600–1400 CE) situated directly across the Mississippi River from 
modern St. Louis, Missouri. The existing park covers about 3.5 square miles, 
and contains about 80 mounds, but the ancient city was actually much larger.  
At its peak, Cahokia covered about six square miles and included about 120 
human-made earthen mounds in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and functions.

 Preview by Yahoo 
 

  Population:  Cahokia's population at its peak in the 1200s would not be 
surpassed by any city in the United States until the late 18th century.  
Although it was home to only about 1,000 people before c. 1050, its population 
grew explosively after that date. Archaeologists estimate the city's population 
at between 6,000 and 40,000 at its peak, with more people living in outlying 
farming villages that supplied the main urban center. If the highest population 
estimates are correct, Cahokia was larger than any subsequent city in the 
United States until the 1780s, when Philadelphia's population grew beyond 
40,000.
 

 Age: Although there is some evidence of Late Archaic period (approximately 
1200 BCE) occupation in and around the site,[6] Cahokia as it is now defined 
was settled around 1200 CE during the Late Woodland period.
  
 Metallurgy: 1950s by archaeologist Greg Perino found the only known copper 
workshop to be found at a Mississippian site. The area contains the remains of 
three tree stumps thought to have been used to hold anvil stones. Analysis of 
copper found during excavations showed that it had been annealed, a technique 
involving repeatedly heating and cooling the metal as it is worked, such as 
blacksmiths do with iron.

Yeah, agreed. Many of these investigations are as shoddy as a CBS/NBC/ABC 
piece on the US government, but it doesn't have to be a reason to shut down 
anything that is out of the ordinary (and I don't think you do, personally...). 
 Much of the widely disseminated 'alternative information' is crap, straight 
up. I agree that the pyramids were simply an amazing feat of engineering, like 
your channel tunnel, or the hoover dam (seriously).
 
 On the other hand, I can't dismiss, for example, the crop circles, out of 
hand, as always man-made. Perhaps some are, but I would think with drones, 
satellites, night vision, Google Earth, and all the other views, of the areas 
in Great Britain, where they appear, someone would have been able to clearly 
debunk them, by now. And they haven't. Doesn't make me a TB in any sense, but 
does sort of force me to keep an open mind.
 

 Regarding 9-11, I think it happened, just the way it was reported; some very 
bright, but insane, fanatics, were able to exploit weaknesses in the system, to 
cause a huge tragedy, which those in power pounced on, as an opportunity to win 
geo-political influence, gain territory, make money, and satisfy constituents. 
 

 I've studied the engineering reports, and it is very possible for the floors 
of the WTC I and II to pancake, as they did, beginning with just one - 
 The new (at the time) 1960's design ethic, for more interior space, with fewer 
interior columns, meant that the supporting outside framework quickly hit its 
weight limit, as successive floors collapsed on top of each other. After three 
or four concrete floors were stacked up, the momentum was unstoppable, all the

organisation like that together there's no way they could have, we didn't have 
the sort of devotional society they had. They may not even have had minds that 
worked in the same way as us. 
 

 Whatever the RV'ers daydream, the pyramids were built by humans. Don't let 
other people do your thinking for you, Brown's claim that the smart people in 
the military don't abandon things that don't work is correct, which is why they 
stopped research with these guys in the first place, and that was just for 
stuff they were looking for in Afghanistan, these guys are talking about things 
that happened decades or millennia ago and just taking the visions as fact! 
 

 His smugness and conviction might distract some from the fact there is no 
corroborating evidence but that's the first thing I look for when faced with a 
revolutionary idea. So I'll wait till someone digs up some of the aliens that 
allegedly helped or anything that shows that people couldn't have done it 
unaided but we already know they did! I remain unconvinced.

[FairfieldLife] Parody or Truth 5

2014-10-12 Thread awoelfleba...@yahoo.com [FairfieldLife]


 Richard can’t wait to get up. Today is the day he and Rita have plans. First, 
they will be venturing to Whole Foods where he is aware that quinoa is on super 
special. After that, on the way for a visit at  the genius bar at the Apple 
store (Richard likes to play with these young “geniuses” to see if they are as 
smart as they think they are) they will stop off for a little Tex Mex in the 
strip mall - although it his housed in a rather humdrum part of town it boasts 
the best Albondigas soup which Richard plans to follow with the arroz con pollo 
(and maybe his guilty pleasure, the cheddar and jalapeño biscuits) and finally 
the house specialty - rose petal flan. Rita prefers the Posole Rojo and the 
Pork and Poblano stew and sometimes she will forego the dessert for a second 
Negra Modelo. Yes indeed, this is going to be a full and pleasant Texas 
afternoon and, with his camera in tow, Richard will share some snaps with the 
others at FFL. They will be able to see what he did today and where he went. He 
knows that the folks like to see what he has been doing during the day. 
 

 
 First though, he must check the computer. Now that Dan is gone there is no 
longer the race to post. The post count will be his, just as it usually is. He 
is the king of the heap, he stands head and shoulders above the others who 
don’t have the endurance to hit the SEND button with the frequency and pleasure 
with which Richard, the pundit, does. He is the veteran, he knows the ropes, he 
has the comebacks, the answers, the macros stored and ready for any 
eventuality. Richard can wear down even the surliest, the most indignant and 
self righteous poster. He just laughs and laughs and laughs. It is a good life. 
Richard isn’t bothered if he is purportedly on the no-read list - he knows that 
eventually his messages could leak through the equivalent of a triple sealed 
and bottled Dos Equis. Those who associate him with Prairie Dogs or claim he is 
off his medication don’t know the truth - Richard is having fun and isn’t fun 
what a lot of this life is all about? You can TALK about advaitin, 
nididhyasana, na medhaya and abhijna all you like (and verbally duel Sanskrit 
terms and concepts all day long with Empty) but when it comes right down to it 
Richard is livin’ the life and there’s no place like Texas to be doing it.

Being against it to me is far richer in meaning, funnier, and to me 
characterizes his style of communication.  He spoke with different 
levels of meaning, with double (and triple) entendre (not sexual in 
instances that I heard).  His quip was funny, decoupling his words 
 from esoteria suitable for their focus on modern educated audiences, 
yet still conveying (what I believe) he meant.


Being against it means he was promoting a method (in his mind) that 
made reincarnation unnecessary.  If asked if he believed in the 
existance any curable disease, a witty doctor might say the same.


This is instructive (to me) -- a message that his, and any teacher's 
words need to be carefully parsed, not over generalized, viewed in its 
specific context and for what audience, don't assume its the full 
teach or truth being conveyed, and most importantly, loosen up, let 
your sense of humor blossom (more).


His is I believe the traditional view that the seeds of reincarnation 
(the vast mountain of karma -- both the small chunk bitten off in this 
life (prarabdha karma) as well as the remainder of the huge yet to be 
dealt with (sanchita karma) are burned by the fires of knowledge (from 
Gita).


(And personally I do not count anything M said as authoritative. Nor 
that of (much) of any teacher or source of knowledge (or words). But 
for me, he did provide some useful starting points for personal 
investigation and validation.)


Quick aside: paraphrasing an early day's conversation:
M: we all have a mountain of karma.
CLutes (apparently believing he was quite far along on the path): M, 
do I have a mountain of karma?

M: You Charlie have more like a huge mountain range.

What are the fires of knowledge? A number of possibilities, not 
necessarily mutually exclusive:


  * understanding and knowledge,
  * transcending,
  * kundalini rising and burning all latent samskaras in the chakras,
culminating in the blooming of the crown chakra,
  * grace of a fully realized teacher,
  * grace of the divine
  * other stuff


And does no reincarnation mean no more individuality after the body 
drops?


(And my position is at least sympathetic with uber atheist Sam Harris 
who said in a funny quip, at a conference on death ( or something) 
with speakers across a full spectrum of views, paraphrasing The key 
thing is we will all dance around the question and weave greatly 
nuanced and intricate answers, but the bottom line is none of us know 
what really happens when the physical body dies.


Reincarnation in human form does not preclude continuation of inner 
evolution in many astral and causal planes (Autobio of Yogi has good 
discussion of this).


And is Moksha / Liberation (that is, all Sanchita Karma (the whole 
range, the big enchilada) is burned / roasted)  the same as 
enlightenment?  I suggest Liberation is the ultimate real thing, 
with a clear criteria. Enlightenment, at what ever stage, not so much. 
That is not to discount the freedom and contentment of any such stages 
and states.

to encourage it into passing to its next destination, lest it remain

I'm now more interested in psychological studies to find why people

Upset? Not me, I'm investigating it too, or rather I'm checking the 
claims made by people who think they can find answers by looking into 
the past somehow. So far I can't see that that is what they are 
doing. Are the 9/11 claims more realistic than the Egyptian ones? 
With the lack of corroborating evidence it seems the only way to 
agree is if you've decided there is a conspiracy of some sort anyway, 
it's not like there is a measurable standard of evidence being used here.


BTW, we're not being smug, just raising questions and trying to make 
folks aware of some things. The smugness is in your head.


That was an observation not an accusation. But do seem unaware that 
what you have about 9/11 is unproven accusations and not any sort of 
proof.


But the guy in the video is /very/ smug, and /very/ elitist. The 
whole thing smacks of a we are smarter than you because we know this 
and you stupid people just swallow what the 'authorities' tell you. 
I either agree with Courtney Brown or I'm letting other people think 
for me. I see another choice.


What all this basically lacks is an explanation of just where the 
past is supposed to be. The second law of thermodynamics tells us it 
aint there no more, so just where these guys go in their heads is 
beyond me. And there's no corroborating evidence for the claims made 
obviously. And an explanation for how it might work, even in linear 
time, might be nice.


But as I always say, we need to sort the signal from the noise and 
that will take corrobarative evidence, maybe they could point to 
where something made of an alien technology is buried so we could go 
dig it up? That would be convincing. But as it is they are making an 
argument from personal incredulity and should spend a bit more time 
reading about Egypt before concluding our ancestors couldn't have 
done it all themselves. Egyptologists (the authorities) hate the 
Johnny-come-lately's who stroll onto the Giza plateau and declare 
aliens must have been involved or whatever.


I wish history was all as easy to understand as RVers claim and this 
is the problem, they claim it's efficient knowledge and better than 
that gained by trained archaeologists. Can you imagine if this sort 
of thinking took over the education system? The internet is where 
this belongs, and all that that entails.. ...


Conclusion: I don't think this is a good place to look if you want 
answers to what you see as the questions about 9/11. Or anything.

The Pyramid one for instance starts with a lecture about not waiting 
for authority to disclose things but finding them out for yourself. 
And then asks you to take his word for it! The following babble is 
unbelievably clueless, talk of using sound to hover blocks of stone, 
battling alien races (where did they go and why did they leave no 
trace?) and worldwide slave labour! All to solve what isn't really a 
mystery - the pyramids weren't built with slaves and the stone was 
quarried nearby in the usual fashion with bronze axes and chisels, 
loads of which are lying around still.



Pervading it all is this same elite smugness that I see with the 
9/11 truthers. That only they know the truth and you are stupid 
sheeple for believing the authorities version of what happened. 
They never finish the sentence by saying we should follow their 
authority instead. And a highly unorthodox and impossible to verify 
one at that.

One's perspective on this presentation of Explanations should be focused on 
assessing its content (i.e., whoever the source may be is far less relevant). 

 

Ask yourself on November 30th:

 

1) Is the content valuable and helpful to me now in my life? 

2) Does it have a practical benefit? If yes, then take that part and use it. If 
not, then don't. 

That should always be the test. On the individual level.

What to do? 

 There is even structure there called Moundhenge that was made during the 
harmonic convergence, I believe.
 

 I drive past that as well.
 

 Now, I will admit, that the other day, I went off a side road right next to 
the main mound to see if there was a place I could park and maybe hunt around 
for some artifacts.
 

 Yes, I admit it.  But, I couldn't really find a place where I could hide my 
car.
 

 Now, I could just park in the mound area parking lot, and walk around to the 
forested area behind it, but I just haven't gotten around to doing that yet.
 

 But, the last time my daughter and I went, it was at sunset, and it was pretty 
nice.
 

 Of course there was a man up there doing some kind of strange ritual, who 
seemed bothered by our presence.
 

 I think he must have been Native American in some respect, although you 
wouldn't have known it by looking at him.
 

 The Cahokia Mounds Museum and Interactive Center right across the road is 
pretty neat.
 

 I've been there several times.
 

 And of course, St. Louis still carries the nickname, Mound City because of all 
the mounds in its vicinity.
