Divide & Conquer

This was originally posted by DaNell Glade from http://prepareforchange.net/ on their weekly newsletter.  From my perspective, DaNell  describes in fine detail exactly what is going within our society and it’s inability to get out of what I call “Dualistic Inertia”. Something we all have been suffering from since the beginning of modern civilization.


DIVIDE AND CONQUER:
The techniques are quite simple: short circuit the natural tendency of people to cooperate for their survival, and teach them to form teams bent on domination and winning (sounds like reality shows).Now let’s list some of the teams we all “play” on and see how this definition of divide and conquer affects us all.

  • Religions – ALL have a “I’m right, you’re not”. (see Guru) It Fits.
  • Family/Tribe/Country – min e/yours, rivalry, war, etc. It Fits.
  • Game Shows/TV – win/lose, victim/abuser shows. It Fits.
  • Sports – All sports – Winners & Losers It Fits.
  • Politics – All Political parties – Winners & losers It Fits.
  • Government – Master/Slave (see truth, patriot) It Fits.
  • Truth movement – Someone knows, Some don’t It Fits.
  • Preppers – I will survive – you may not It Fits.
  • Patriots – (See Politics, govt. & preppers) It Fits.
  • Conspiracy – (see truth movement & patriots) It Fits.
  • Education – Grading, competition, win/lose It Fits.
  • Businesses – Competition, survival, win/lose, profit It Fits.
  • Heterosexual/LGBT – right/wrong, divide It Fits.
  • E.T. community – (see conspiracy, truth, govt. etc.) It Fits.
  • New Age Guru’s – (see religions, truth, business) It Fits.
  • Financial System – winners/losers (see truth,conspiracy,education,business,preppers,patriots, government,sports,family and religion. It Fits.
I could go on but ask each of you to see your own life – your own interests, your own clubs you belong to, your own gadgets & gizmo’s. Where do you spend your time and attention.
I’m saying that this society is set up to keep us – humanity – in the divide and conquer lifestyle, mindset, belief and energy – over and over, generation after generation, century upon century. On e of the main symptoms of that “Divide and Conquer” is slavery. Slavery?
 
slavery |ˈslāvərē|
noun
the state of being a slave : thousands had been sold into slavery (knowingly/unknowingly).
• the practice or system of owning (working, trading, using) slaves. 
• a condition compared to that of a slave in respect of exhausting labor or restricted freedom : female domestic slavery.  Sex Slave, sex trafficking, sweat shops, etc.
  • excessive dependence on or devotion to something : slavery to tradition, beliefs, addictions.   Lacking freedom, will.   
One of my favorite “freedom fighters” is Mark Passio.  I took some notes (in grey) from the #147 podcast that can be found at:  www.whatonearthishappening.com  podcast #147
 
Slavery – The Human Condition – Coercion, Kidnap, imprison, harass, steal, rape, kill – if not done directly, it’s done in news, media & movies.
 
Correction – Seek the truth, speak the truth.  No Rulers, No Masters, No Slavery, natural law, education, healing, ACTION. 
 
What are the psychological causes of slavery.  We can’t change the world unless we understand the behaviors of humanity that cause our behaviors in our societies in this world – we need to understand what is going on in our own mind because the mind manifests the reality we live in.  
 
Why are people so asleep they refuse to live in harmony with natural law, they do not see the evil in their midst and they choose to willfully & passively participate in such evil?  Is it all due to mind control?  (no).  Some is caused by:
 

Tree of all evil – 1. Willful ignorance, 2. Not owning Self Responsibility. 3. Self loathing due to lack of self respect.  4. Parental Abandonment Issues.  5. Cosmic Abandonment Issues.

Imagine a tree with leaves (see image below).  The leaves – Willful ignorance causes slavery, violence, chaos, destruction, cognitive dissonance & denial.  Underneath that willful ignorance is: Fear of owning Self Responsibility (small branches).  Childish notion of wanting to remain irresponsible.  Never growing up psychologically, emotionally & spiritually. Psychology of obedience.

I just want to obey (do what I’m told), not be responsible for my actions.  Under that fear of owning Self Responsibility is Self loathing/unworthiness (larger branches of tree) – Most people on earth hate themselves & others (most is subconscious).  We (society as a whole) doesn’t have true self worth and self respect and so we tolerate & perpetuate slaver y and abuse.  Underneath Self loathing is the psychological Parental abandonment issues (roots of tree), whether physical, psychological or spiritual abandonment by parents toward children.  This abandonments gets buried in the subconscious mind which is 85% of your personality.  Humanity and most humans have NOT been nurtured or protected.  The subconscious mind tries to protect the conscious mind (15% of your personality) by repressing trauma.  We are carrying around these abandonment issues.  Underneath the parental abandonment issues are the Cosmic Abandonment/Separation from God issues.

This Subconscious mind holds these 5 areas out of our waking consciousness.  Long term effects on humanity is not dealing with our past & present trauma’s and allowing it to continue.  Those trau matic experiences are not healed but repressed – we are still a traumatized individual/society/humanity – which is easily controlled.
We get and stay in the abuse/victim cycle.  We either become an abuser . . . or a victim.   Humanity tends to become an abuser victimizing others (& self) – or becomes a victim and is victimized by others (& self).  This works for direct experiencers and those who witness the trauma that is taking place (via family, NEWS, T.V. Media & Movies).  This is for individuals as well as countries.  Podcast continues with other great observations and solutions:  www.whatonearthishappening.com   podcast #147 – listen and learn.
In Conclusion – can you start to see the connections to the Divide & Conquer technique to what Mark Passio is saying about slavery.  This Divide & Conquer is so prevalent in our societies and is one of the things that keeps us from working together – keeps us in our teams, feeling right about ourselves and judging other people an d possibilities as wrong – and keeps us slaves or perpetuating slavery and poverty.
I personally feel it’s been planned that way.  We have been kept from truth and knowledge – and we are finding this out more and more each day.  We are connecting the dots of trauma, who’s been the abusers/perpetrators, who are the victims this time around and how to stop the insanity.
There is that last crucial step to take to Heal ourselves/humanity, so we can work together, taking action for the good of all of humanity to help heal the divide between us as individuals, groups, religions, sports teams, genders, nationalities, governments.
Please take some action this week to read and listen to Mark – look within, take responsibility for your life, for your words and thoughts and for your actions – make corrections when needed.  Speak up by talking, blogging, join a positive movement, call into a radio show, teach this to school children, educate yourself, enter local politics or attend city/county meetings, be more kind and gentle to yourself family & friends, encourage someone, give donations, volunteer, etc. etc.  DO SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR HUMANITY and THIS WORLD.

If This Video Doesn’t Convince You To Put Down Your Phone, Nothing Probably Will

Global Elite TV | Alternative Media

This video will probably make you put your phone down for a minute. It hits the nail on the head when it comes to describing how our generation is missing out on so much in life because our current obsession with social media and mobile devices. It has changed our lives, but in some cases it may have changed it for the worse.

We’re so consumed by our phones and social networks, that sometimes we forget to live.

Video Game Ethics- Part I

“I decided I will segment this blog post in two parts.  The first part will give you the whole story about my experience inside the Video Game Universe since day one.  So I can give you a clear idea of where I’m coming from on this topic.  The second part will be concentrating into the topic itself and the current state of the video game industry as I see it from my perspective.”

 

As I mentioned on my first ever blog post, I’m a hardcore video gamer.  I come from the Atari Generation where Pac-Man was king and Asteroids and Space Invaders were the common foe.  It was such a huge part of my childhood to the point I was able to draw even my dad to the crave of playing.  I was amazed of how good he became at playing Pac-Man.  He even beat my highest score and reset the game score to zero.  It came to a point where we would spend whole weekends playing without watching any tv (shows) whatsoever.

When the video game industry evolve into the new console at the time; The Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES) , for some reason I didn’t go along with the evolution completely.  I never owned a NES.  I got the chance to play it but it was at my cousin’s where I usually would spend a weekend or a whole week during summertime.   I think it was due to the fact that my focus of attention started to shift into the beginning of my musical career, which I’ll talk about in a future post.

There was one point in time when I tried to get myself back into the video game world.  The Atari and the NES were long gone.  Now the console king was the Nintendo 64.  Mario, Luiggi and I never got quite along to be honest.  That’s why I bought myself a Sega Genesis so I could play the game that was the biggest thing at the time; Mortal Kombat.  But that run with the Genesis didn’t last long.  I was so into playing music that I just didn’t have the time and mostly, the urge to play games.

It wasn’t until  video game technology would made this huge quantum leap that brought us the Sony Playstation, the Microsoft Xbox and the Nintendo Gamecube when I really did make a comeback and never looked back.

I started with The Gamecube. I was already married, I’ve got a house, a full time job and my side musical gig when i bought that console. So my weekends would consist of playing games on the Cube  during the day, and playing my guitar with my cover band in the evening.  I was playing games like Spawn (based on the HBO adult comic series) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  I have one funny anecdote that happened during the time I was playing the Game Cube.

One day I got off work, usually at 4pm. My workplace was like 5 minutes away from home so with traffic it would take like 10 or 15 minutes to get back home.  So when i finally get back home, I open the door and the first thing I see is my wife sitting on the floor holding the Game Cube controller.  She looks at me with her eyes wide open and says “What are you doing here???”, I said “What do you mean what am I doing here??. I’m your husband.  I live here, remember??” . She says, “I know but…. Hey!!.. What time is it??” And I told her ” It’s 4:20 pm”.  She opens her mouth, her eyes opens much wider and says “Ohh My God!!! I got so caught up on this game (The Star Wars Game that is) I totally lost the sense of time!!”. I asked her at what time she started playing. She told me “I think it was 9:30 am”.  Now I was the one with the open mouth and the eyes wide open shouting “What??????”.  And I started laughing and I couldn’t stop for more than 5 minutes.  She looks at me and says “Don’t laugh!!.. I haven’t even fix up dinner!!” and I started to laugh louder. I ended up going back to the car and drive downtown to buy some take out Chinese food.  But to me it was one of the funniest things I’ve ever witnessed in my life.

In 2003 I bought my 1st Xbox.  The first generation Xbox that is.  With the Xbox I had my first experience with a so called “First Person Shooter” Game.  That game was Halo.  A “First Person Shooter” game or FPS is the type of game that let’s you play as the main character and play it from the perspective of his/her eyesight. All you see from the character is his/her arms holding a weapon and what’s in front of him/her. That includes the ability to move forward or backwards, turn around, crouch, run, switch weapons and of course fire the weapon.  Its like you posses the body of the main character.  That ability of playing a game from that perspective comes with a price that I didn’t know at the time.  One night I was playing Halo and all of the sudden I started to feel dizzy.  To the point I got nauseous.  So I had to stop playing.  2 minutes after I stop playing,  the dizziness and the nausea were gone just as they came.  I turned off the Xbox and went to bed wondering what was the cause of that weird incident.  Next day I told a friend of mine who’s also a hardcore gamer about what happened to me playing the game. I asked him if he ever experienced such a thing while playing.  He laughed and told me what I experienced was a case of “Motion Sickness”. Which is common when you first get exposed to FPS games.  Here’s the overview of  Motion Sickness as described on the WebMD page:

“Motion sickness occurs when the inner ear, the eyes, and other areas of the body that detect motion send unexpected or conflicting messages to the brain. One part of your balance-sensing system (your inner ear, vision, and sensory nerves that help you keep your balance) may sense that your body is moving, while the other parts do not sense motion.”

It makes sense because when you play a FPS game it gives you the sensation that you’re walking or running, but you’re not. Same thing happens when you board a plane or a boat or a roller coaster ride.  He told me that all I had to do is make sure to eat or drink something with a decent amount of sugar before I started playing or in the middle of the game.  For some reason Motion Sickness can be prevented by maintaining slightly higher levels of blood sugar.  But I decided at that time it was best to move on and try another type of game.

So I got to what have become one of my favorite games of all time.  Ninja Gaiden. The name says it all. You get play as a fierce, stealthy, quicker than the speed of sound ninja warrior who’s main weapon is a sharper than sharp, mythical and legendary blade that cuts even the strongest metal alloy in the planet.  This is a type of game called “Action Role Playing Game” or ARPG.  Role playing games gives you a third person perspective.  Your point of view could be either in 3D which puts you right behind the main character and have a 360 degree view, or in 2D where you see the character from one side and you can only move him/her forward or backwards. A good example of a 2D game would be Super Mario Brothers. Other titles I got to play on the First Generation Xbox were  newer versions of Mortal Kombat, The Xbox version of Spawn: Armageddon, Fable, Street Fighter (2 or 3, can’t remember which one), The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers, Soul Calibur II, Spiderman 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront.

In 2007 i made the switch to the new generation Xbox.  The Xbox 360.  The console was already launched back in late 2005.  So by the time I bought mine, there was already a huge collection of games available to play.  This is when I started to notice something about certain games that didn’t sit well with me.  On part II of this blog post you’ll see what didn’t sit well with me and which were the games that made me feel that way.

The Light Of The Matter Is….. Well… Light

Scientists discover how to turn light into matter after 80-year quest

“I promised science would be one of the main topics on this blog, so here it is.  This article was released 10 days ago.  But a discovery of this magnitude is worth posting no matter  the place or the time. Since the laws of physics theorizes that time is merely an illusion and we live in more of a Spacetime reality.  To me this discovery is a game changer, a major breakthrough after a stand still of more than a 100 years when Einstein discovered the Theory of General Relativity and Quantum Physics was established.”

 

 

Imperial College London physicists have discovered how to create matter from light – a feat thought impossible when the idea was first theorised 80 years ago.

In just one day over several cups of coffee in a tiny office in Imperial’s Blackett Physics Laboratory, three physicists worked out a relatively simple way to physically prove a first devised by scientists Breit and Wheeler in 1934.

Breit and Wheeler suggested that it should be possible to turn into matter by smashing together only two particles of light (photons), to create an electron and a positron – the simplest method of turning light into matter ever predicted. The calculation was found to be theoretically sound but Breit and Wheeler said that they never expected anybody to physically demonstrate their prediction. It has never been observed in the laboratory and past experiments to test it have required the addition of massive high-energy particles.

The new research, published in Nature Photonics, shows for the first time how Breit and Wheeler’s theory could be proven in practice. This ‘photon-photon collider’, which would convert light directly into matter using technology that is already available, would be a new type of high-energy physics experiment. This experiment would recreate a process that was important in the first 100 seconds of the universe and that is also seen in gamma ray bursts, which are the biggest explosions in the universe and one of physics’ greatest unsolved mysteries.

The scientists had been investigating unrelated problems in fusion energy when they realised what they were working on could be applied to the Breit-Wheeler theory. The breakthrough was achieved in collaboration with a fellow theoretical physicist from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, who happened to be visiting Imperial.

Demonstrating the Breit-Wheeler theory would provide the final jigsaw piece of a physics puzzle which describes the simplest ways in which light and matter interact (see image in notes to editors). The six other pieces in that puzzle, including Dirac’s 1930 theory on the annihilation of electrons and positrons and Einstein’s 1905 theory on the photoelectric effect, are all associated with Nobel Prize-winning research (see image).

Professor Steve Rose from the Department of Physics at Imperial College London said: “Despite all physicists accepting the theory to be true, when Breit and Wheeler first proposed the theory, they said that they never expected it be shown in the laboratory. Today, nearly 80 years later, we prove them wrong. What was so surprising to us was the discovery of how we can create matter directly from light using the technology that we have today in the UK. As we are theorists we are now talking to others who can use our ideas to undertake this landmark experiment.”

The collider experiment that the scientists have proposed involves two key steps. First, the scientists would use an extremely powerful high-intensity laser to speed up electrons to just below the speed of light. They would then fire these electrons into a slab of gold to create a beam of photons a billion times more energetic than visible light.

The next stage of the experiment involves a tiny gold can called a hohlraum (German for ’empty room’). Scientists would fire a high-energy laser at the inner surface of this gold can, to create a thermal radiation field, generating light similar to the light emitted by stars.

They would then direct the photon beam from the first stage of the experiment through the centre of the can, causing the photons from the two sources to collide and form electrons and positrons. It would then be possible to detect the formation of the electrons and positrons when they exited the can.

Lead researcher Oliver Pike who is currently completing his PhD in plasma physics, said: “Although the theory is conceptually simple, it has been very difficult to verify experimentally. We were able to develop the idea for the collider very quickly, but the experimental design we propose can be carried out with relative ease and with existing technology. Within a few hours of looking for applications of hohlraums outside their traditional role in research, we were astonished to find they provided the perfect conditions for creating a photon collider. The race to carry out and complete the experiment is on!”

One Little Victory

“A certain measure of righteousness
A certain amount of force
A certain degree of determination
Daring on a different course”

“The measure of the moment
In a difference of degree
Just one little victory
A spirit breaking free
One little victory
The greatest act can be
One little victory”

Those are part of the lyrics of the song “One Little Victory” from one my favorite rock bands of all time, Rush. I pointed out in my first/introduction post that the first topic I would touch on would be about one of my passions which is my family. As you read along you’ll see why I wanted to entitle this post One Little Victory.

Couple of days ago my niece graduated from high school. To protect her identity we’ll call her “Angel”. Graduating from high school is great achievement in it’s own right. At least from the perspective of your children, your siblings, close friends etc. You might say a lot of people graduate from high school every year. That might be true but, my niece’s high school graduation was the culmination of an amazing journey of courage,determination and overcoming the odds in such a way that it is worth writing a novel. But I’ll try to keep it as short and simple on this post.

Angel is a special needs human being. She was born with lots of health issues and complications. Including a very weak heart. At age one she went through heart surgery with the doctors giving her little chance of survival. She pulled through it though. She was also born with an open palate. So her developing years as a child were very troubling when it came to communicating with her. Also she had to wait to be older in order to have surgery to close her palate. Another issue was her chronological age vs. her mental age. She suffers from a certain syndrome where for example a child might be 12 years old, but has a mental age of a 3 year old. All these and some other health issues were part of her every day life. She started school at age 4 at a special needs kids classroom. The Special Needs program from my Country’s Department of Education is a very flawed system. Not enough personnel and resources, lots of bureaucracy etc. We all saw that the school was doing Angel more harm than good. So my sister (her mom) took the bold decision of moving to the U.S. along with Angel and her 2 younger children (a boy and a girl) hoping to find a better future for the 3 of them, but the main target was Angel. My other niece and my nephew are two completely healthy young human beings thanks The Universe. It’s worth noting that this bold move by my sister was done she being a single mom. My other sister was already living at the same place Angel’s mom was moving so at least she had a little bit of help of putting her feet on firm ground.

At this point in time, Angel’s heart condition was no longer a major issue, her communication skills were much better thanks to some talk therapy. But as her body was transforming into a full teenager, her brain was still of a 5 year old. Which I think this was a blessing in disguise.You’ll see why later on. My sister quickly found a job at a Kids Day Care facility. Angel and her 2 younger siblings went back to school. This was a big concern for all of us in the family. because we knew this was gonna be a major change and huge culture shock for the kids. And this was because my country of origin is a Spanish speaking country. So my nieces and nephew knew little or no English at all when they went to their new school. Especially Angel and her limited communication skills. Fortunately and to my surprise Angel’s younger brother and sister were speaking better English than me in a matter of six months after moving to their new home. So that was a relief.

Angel also adapted very quickly to our surprise. And this happened thanks to guess what… Her blessing in disguise. Her 5 year old mentality. She won everyone’s heart who worked at that school. Her innocence , her ability to love without prejudice touched everyone who went in contact with her. That led to people more willing to help her. Including better doctors, better therapists, better counselors, better teachers etc. Angel’s improvements were more notable as the years passed. Her communicating skills, Her interaction skills with other people. She even got into a program where she could experience having a real job by working 2 or 4 hours a week at a department store and a supermarket. Although she’s inseparable with her mom. She’s more independent now than she was 5 years ago.

One thing I haven’t mention about Angel is her photographic mind. Especially with past events, music lyrics and dances. Just to give you an example of this, every once in a while she comes to me and say something like this.. “Uncle, do you remember the day you took me to the ice cream shop and you ordered x flavored ice cream and I ordered y flavored ice cream?. I’m like how in the world she can remember that??. That happened like 10 years ago and she was still a little kid??. And with that kind of detail??. I know I’ve taken her several times to that ice cream shop. But if you ask me for specifics like that, forget it about it. It’s impossible for me to remember. As far as music goes, she loves music.She adores music. Especially Latin music. Salsa, Merengue, Latin Pop, Bachata you name it. And the amazing thing is how accurate she is when it comes to lyrics. She can sing every single word of a certain song. And if the song has a dance move. She dances and sings it like the original artist. Of course she still has some trouble with pronouncing some words but it still amazes me how accurate she is. That’s why every party she goes, if there’s music she likes, she’ll become the life of the party in no time. And if the party happens to have a Kareoke machine??. She will be the first to take the mic and start singing like there’s no tomorrow.

Recently we experienced yet another health scare with Angel. Now we found out that she suffers from seizures. She suffered a big seizure about a year and a half ago. It was so big we feared we might lose her this time. But yet again. Her mom was there at the right place at the right time to help her. My sister recognized the symptoms right away and took the right course. That prevented a more worse scenario. Angel had to be hospitalized for observation to prevent for more big seizures to occur. Thank The Universe she’s taking medication and the condition is under control at the moment.

Image

That’s Angel saying hello to her raving fans(her mom,her aunt and her brothers) at her graduation ceremony. Too bad i couldn’t be there to celebrate that moment with her. But that’s what destiny has decided. Depending on the perspective of the observer, to some, that would’ve been just another day. But to others that day was a huge victory and a success not only for Angel, but for all of us who care deeply about her. A big chunk of credit goes out to my sister. Who was the one that paved the road that led Angel to appear on the picture above. And if you put the words dedication and sacrifice on that last sentence, It would make it an automatic understatement.

It’s been 22 years since Angel came to our lives. And I can say without any doubt and with my watery eyes as I’m writing this, that I have learned more from Angel rather than me teaching her. I have learned more from her than any other teacher can teach me about what life is all about. Angel is a pure soul. Filled with the brightest light in The Universe. She has no malice, her brain doesn’t recognize the word hate. That’s why her child mind is more of a blessing rather than a problem. Everywhere she goes, her presence fills the room with a light full of happiness, kindness and joy. She gives you her heart without hesitation and without asking something in return. She has no Ego and so she doesn’t feel like she is someone better or worse than anybody. She’s the purest expression of that thing we call Love. Could you imagine how this planet would be like if it would be populated only by people just like Angel??. Try and picture that. After you picture it. Don’t you think this place would be a totally different and much better place to live??.

So to my dear niece I say. Thank you Angel… Not only for that Huge Victory that you gave to us your family and friends. But also to gave us a huge lesson in life of how life itself is better lived by the way you live it. Thank you for that One Little Victory that makes this Universe a much  better place to live and for more Little Victories to come. I love you with all my heart and soul.

Welcome To The Ninth

Greetings my fellow Echoes. This is Ninoy broadcasting from a wormhole in space. Lately my brain has been bombarded with ideas and reflections about all the things that had been happening in the surroundings of this thing called “Life”.So the urge to speak my mind no pun intended has been inevitable. That’s why I decided to create this vehicle of conversation/communication called “blog”. So a lot of stuff will be put on this table based on different interests, issues and topics that I feel passionate about.

So to give you an idea of what you might expect to read on this blog, let me tell you a thing or two about myself.

If you noticed from my opening paragraph, I used the word “wormhole”. So it’s a no brainer that science will be one of the topics to be talked about. Especially in the world of Physics and Quantum Mechanics. And just to be clear I have no degree of science education whatsoever. I’m just a fan of science. So the topic of science will be touched in the form reposting science articles from different sources that I may find interesting.

Music is my first and foremost main passion. I’m a musician and composer. I’ve been playing bass guitar for over 27 years and electric and acoustic guitar for over 25 years. In the music world I’m known as the Saint Of The Echo (Now you know where does the word “Echo” comes from) I compose in various styles of music from Electronic, Industrial, and Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal being my favorite genre. If you’re interested in giving my music a try. You can go to my Soundcloud page, Last Fm , Facebook or follow me on Twitter. The links to these pages are listed on this blog.

My family is right there in the exact same place where music is when it comes to passions. So my family will be one of the topics I’ll be talking about. And my next blog post will touch the topic of my family based on recent events.

At this point you should realize how much of a geek I am. I mean Science and Music?? Come on!!. So Technology will be a topic and that may be intertwined with the science topic from time to time. But the topic related to technology that you’ll see the most will come from the realm of.. yeap.. you guessed it. Video Games. I’m a confessed, hardcore videogamer. Especially in the Xbox realm. In fact you’ll see how close my both my passions for music and video games had become.

Now you may wonder. “What’s the deal with the number 9??. Well believe it or not that’s where the spiritual/pantheistic side of me comes afloat. If you’ve never heard the term pantheistic before, I will explain it in one of the near future posts. But to give you an idea of what the number 9 means to me and to many other people. The number 9 is said to be the ruler of the laws of nature and The Universe. And I’m totally convinced that science and spirituality/philosophy share some kind of bond. A realm that science hasn’t touched yet. Or have they?? and for some reason the scientific community doesn’t want to admit it and rapidly closes the issue with the term “Pseudo-Science”. That’s also where the topic of consciousness emerges. The discussion of consciousness between the scientific community and the philosophic one is being treated like the issue of who came first…The Chicken or the Egg?? But that’s material for an entire blog post.

So as you can see this blog will not be a specialty type of blog like cooking or fashion or gardening. And by no means I am not trying to diminish the importance and the interest that a lot of people have in those type of blogs. I’m a firm believer that nothing is good or bad, better or worse, interesting or not interesting as long as somebody has a genuine and conscious interest in the topic and could do good things in their favor and in the favor of others.

So as of now, The Ninth Echo is officially open and you’re more than welcome to join me on this trip through this wormhole. A Joyride??? Maybe..Maybe not. But an very interesting ride?? To me already that’s an understatement.

Many Blessings and Good Vibrations

Ninoy
