    what went on in old Egypt is fun to think about but i'm really more interested in something to get me through the night.

    the wonders of our past


    It is evident that our past was glorious and our present is not. I must know and remember as much i can whom i am . It is aparent that our original thought process in the exact oppostie of our programming in amercia. We must live for now and the future that is correct. time is measured by chemcial change thus it is relative. however there has been alot going on between manifestaion and return to the all or spatial matter by our ancestors. We must learn brother and attempt to rebuild. It is peril to the existence of our species. See we do not know how much we are programmed. No disrespect dear elder but we must be concered about it for it must be corrected. If not then why is there such strong rebellion in our youth before they get programmed and become docile . The truth is encoded in thier dna that is why. so me must begin to look at our past so to speak because or past in my opinion is our future.

    I find myself in agreement with Brother Emanuel.

    "Those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it".

    How often have these words been bellowed throughout the Ages, and how more often, has the failure to heed those words, resulted in the downfall of humanity?

    While I agree, Brother Elder, with the sentiment that we mayhaps not be debating these issues in the best of manners, I still think that, especially if we claim to strive to honor our Ancestors, that we should as best connect with their legacy as possible.......And doing this would include knowing what took place during their Journey in this physical realm.

    I got one too...after all, who cares?....Don't too many brothers know who their father is now, so what difference does it make back then?

    Good points, one and all.

    However, I think that the issue of not having a connection with our ancient ancestors (our forefathers), lends itself to our not knowing our immediate ancestors (our fathers).

    And thus, we see how history repeats itself.

    Can there be a solution manifested out of balance?

    PEACE

    Even if that was the goal, it can be done far more intuitively.

    You've read Metu Neter, Brother Elder.......I'm sure you are well aware with what this means.

    PEACE
