LOST HORIZONS

"From any point, A line reaches back, And attaches to a far distant center. There
is no unconnected life in this world, Nor a point in time, Unknown by any other
point, Nor a tear shed in a vacuum." ........................Hermes

The world is strange and baffling; it holds to itself so many secrets; its behavior is not fully understood, no matter how much that understanding may seem to increase. It is a world that has to be reckoned with, one that disturbs any complacency; it is something big and awesomely powerful, and man is so helplessly small and impotent by comparison. Fragile human life hangs so much in delicate checks and balances walking a tight rope into the unknown in the face of forces over which there is no assured control. It will never be fully accepted that mankind originated on such a perilous and unpredictable planet, and we find we are forever bound in the quest to understand the enigmas of our origins, our purpose, our future and the infinite universe that surrounds this seemingly forgotten orb upon which we live out our fleeting lives. Mankind's stimulated response to the unknown can only accurately and characteristically be described as religious. A man who himself is religious is possessed of an active spiritual experience that drives him on. A 'religion', on the other hand, is that body of beliefs and practices pertaining to the larger world, set by his family, his clan, his tribe, to which he is expected by his group to respond.

"Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect,
is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future."
........................Albert Camus

Religions have a tendency to construct their own sometimes abstract un-natural conceptions of what they perceive as right and wrong. For example an un-natural religion might espouse that everyone is born into this world a sinner or that sex and the human body are evil and filthy. How utterly absurd! How can one be born a sinner if they are newly born and have not even begun to assimilate the world around them or know right from wrong? Sex is only as filthy as one chooses to make it while natural healthy sex is not only one of the greatest forms of pleasure on earth that a man and woman can experience, but at times it is quite capable of opening up channels of high spiritual consciousness. The act of sex between man and woman should be honored and respected for without it and the urge to have it; we would not exist very long as a human species. To view such a beautiful experience as filthy all stems from fear. Imposing un-natural guilt on sex is created as a means of control by the church. The beauty of the well proportioned body in itself is divine to behold and the underline motivation behind the attraction of the male and female gender consummated in perfect love is surely one of the ultimate sublime gifts from God. There is no greater experience in life on earth than the perfect love between a man and a woman. The priestcraft religious balderdash of instilling guilt and shame has always been used as a mechanism to control the minds of the weak and hold its subjects as prisoners in mental chains by systematically breaking down their natural-born urge, will, and self esteem. To implant such guilt’s and abstract fears into the mind of a child is truly sick and deviant!

"The world exists to the soul to satisfy the desire of beauty. This element I call an ultimate end. No reason can be asked or given why the soul seeks beauty. Beauty, in its largest and profoundest sense, is one expression for the universe. God is the all-fair. Truth, and goodness, and beauty, are but different faces of the
same All. But beauty in nature is not ultimate. It is the herald of inward and eternal beauty,and is not alone a solid and satisfactory good. It must stand as a part, and not as yet the last or highest expression of the final cause of Nature."
.....................Ralph Waldo Emerson

For every man or woman who are born with a tendency to do evil there are likewise just as many men and women born to do good. Good will always prevail whether with or without evil, while Evil in and of itself cannot prevail without good. Good is self generating and possesses light, life and order, while evil is a process of degeneration consisting of darkness death and chaos. The span of a human life on earth affords each man and woman enough time to see the errors of their ways and correct them. Man has the privilege to arrange his own life as he sees fit, as well as the life of the society to which he belongs. By co-coordinating social and indigenous cultural forces with right ordered natural forces man gains an added impetus to his undertakings and increases his chances for successful fulfillment in all levels. Spiritual equilibrium keeps man in freedom of thinking and willing, for whatever a man thinks and wills has relation either to evil and its falsity, or to good and its truth. Consequently when man is in that equilibrium between the two, he is free. The whole point and purpose in life is the conscious ongoing process of perfecting ourselves in mind, spirit and soul. Our family, folk, nation and the world in which we live should ever remain our primary focus and reflect the perfecting progress of our inner selves. Anything less amounts to a selfish pointless existence and will only leave a soul empty at the end of life’s road. One literally reaps what he sows. DON'T TALK GOD, LIVE IT! Time, that grim ever ticking reminder of our fleeting stay upon this planet is quickly gone!....Time waits for no one!
The ethnic gods of both the Northern and Southern Euro-pantheons are extremely ancient and in their origin it is highly likely that they may well have originated on another planet altogether. The avid historian and researcher will find that there are ample writings artifacts and hieroglyphics suggesting that such a hypothesis is highly probable. The patterns of ignorance into which a man is born are imposed upon him through mankind’s own institutions of mislearning, which leaves one usually spending an entire lifetime sorting out the facts from the fictions he was programmed to believe and accept. In large part, man is a derivation rather than an independent piece of nature. His values, pleasures, religious views and general attitudes are borrowed. A long time elapses before he becomes an independent thinker, before he is willing to form judgments according to his own intelligence and understand the difference between his created personality and his true essence within his living being.
Many historical eras have come and gone long before the dawn of our own recorded history, most recent being the civilization of Atlantis, which expired approximately 11,600 years ago. There have been many opposing theories as to how Atlantis met its fate or of its precise location. One of the more logical and likely proposals was that of the distinguished physicist, inventor and engineer Otto Muck. Muck centered his investigation on Atlantis along the ocean floor in an area of the Atlantic named the Sargasso Sea which we know today as the Bermuda Triangle. It was in this location that he made a very significant discovery. There, along the sea bottom of that area, were discovered two very large circular sea craters which was the result of the immense impact of an asteroid which split in half under atmospheric pressure generated during its decent. The asteroid was estimated in size to be at least six and one quarter miles in diameter, traveling at a speed of 12 miles per second. The collision impact resulted in an explosive energy equivalent to 30,000 hydrogen bombs sending a backlash of water up into the air half the distance to the moon. The destruction to Atlantis was total. The split asteroid, like many meteorites, contains large deposits of nickel-iron, in this case, many millions of tons worth. Nickel-iron is most notably magnetic, and concentrated deposits of such a magnitude would naturally play havoc with sensitive compasses and depth-gauges, or produce any variety of instrument anomalies. These significant findings add much light to many mysteries that surround the Bermuda Triangle.
Before the settlement of Atlantis there existed a Titan race of giant humans known as the Aurignacians, who would have been close to extinction by that time. The Aurignacians had colonized in what we now know as Europe at the close of the great Ice Age about 25,000 years ago. Aurignacian people were known to reach a height on the average of 8' to 12', not unlike the early Atlantean sub-race known then as the Rmoahals, or the Toltecs, who ruled territories of Atlantis for thousands of years. Skeletal remains of these giant humans have been unearthed in diverse areas of the world. Atlantean civilization developed under the patron High God Poseidon. His royal line was descended from five pairs of male twins, the result of a union between Poseidon and a mortal maiden named Cleito. So Atlantis was divided into ten parts. According to legend, the descendants of Atlas, Poseidon's eldest son, and his brothers inherited and ruled this island paradise generation after generation. The island and surrounding ocean were named in honor of Atlas. Though their dominion extended over many islands and over portions of the coast of the Mediterranean as far as Egypt, Greece and the America's, they became extremely wealthy, partly from natural resources and partly from foreign trade.
As the centuries passed, Atlas was remembered as a great Titan god, symbolically holding the sky on his broad shoulders, his feet planted firmly on the earth, as his head reaches towards the heavens. This dual task portrays man as a composite expression of matter and spirit, hence half-earthly and half-divine. One hand he stretches out to the lower forms of biological life, the other to the higher forms of existence in the extended universe above. In the writings of Plato we find that the sons of Poseidon, (if we regard him as a mortal figure), settled in Atlantis some centuries before the coming of the Azilians to Europe, or, roughly about 1,000 years before the submersion of Atlantis. In the mythos of Poseidon and Atlas we find a strong parallel with the White, Mayan god Quetzalcoatl and the Teutonic god Wotan.
It is believed that Poseidon was the historical leader of the Azilian or proto-Azilian band of invaders who conquered the Atlanteans and colonized in some centuries prior to making their great raid on Europe. He is historically described as a god of "Pelasgian" origin. The name Pelasgian is usually employed to denote a race who colonized Greece at an early period and built immense structures of solid stone. They were, also, known as the Mykenean, the bringers of the Mysteries of the Cabiri to Greece, a people of Iberian stock. The Iberian race occupied ancient Ireland before the arrival of the Celts, with whom they mixed, creating the strain of Celt, which we have come to know today as the Black Irish. In this ancient time Iberius was the god of what is now Ireland. Albion, his brother, was the original tutelary god of Britain, and Atlas, ruling god of Atlantis, were all sons of Poseidon.
It has been well established that Druidism was not a religion of Celtic providence, but of Iberian origin. Druidism was the last phase of an imported Atlantean religion. In the writings of Caesar he states that the Iberians, who seem to have instituted Druidism, were the direct descendants of the Azilians of Atlantis. The Druids, according to the writings of Pliny, sacrificed white bulls before cutting the mysterious mistletoe from the sacred oak tree. It is interesting to note the symbolic connection of the bull with Poseidon. The bull was the beast of Poseidon par excellence. The bull was highly worshiped by the Aurignacian cults before Atlantis, as is evident in cave paintings and artifacts, and very popular during Atlantean times. This ancient symbolic reverence to the bull penetrated into all of the existing Aryan countries to which the sunken island had been conjoined. Indeed, the whole circumstances of the bull-cult, as drawn from the comparative study of its phenomena in Spain, France, Britain, Minoian Crete and Egypt, are evident of its true origin in sunken Atlantis.
Atlanteans were the first known navigators and the superior seafarers of the time, followed by the Minoians of Crete and the Phoenicians and Celts. The Cretans, not unlike a good portion of Atlanteans, were of Iberian racial stock, and had labyrinthine cave-temples like those of the Aurignacians of Spain and France. Authorities agree that the Iberian race was a large factor among those ethnological constituents which helped to make up the composite stock known as the ancient White Egyptians. It was the Iberians, in fact, who introduced Atlantean culture into the Valley of the Nile. The evidence which appears most strongly in favor of the introduction of Atlantean influence into Egypt is connected to the cult of Osiris. That this worship was not indigenous to Egypt is obvious, but it is yet difficult to determine at what actual era it was introduced into the Nile Valley.
When the Trojan War was raging outside the walls of Troy, from 1194-1184 B.C.E., the civilization of Crete was already 2,000 years old. Its buildings surpassed any other buildings in the world at that time. Homer in 800 B.C.E. still described the magnificent court of King Minos. Herodotus mentions it in the middle of the fifth century B.C.E. and a little later Thucydides refers to Crete's mighty fleet. Aristotle, in the next century, states that King Minos was the mightiest ruler of the Cretans, from whom the Minoan Empire itself derived its name. The double axe was Crete's sacred symbol of the Gods, which the Greeks adopted. Rhea, the Cretan Mother Goddess, is often represented on Greek statues with her son, both with the symbolic double axe. A pair of bull horns were, also, a Cretan religious symbol. And these majestic bull horns in stone stood in front of mighty temples and palaces.
The early Minoan period lasted from 3400-2100 B.C.E., the middle Minoan period from 2100-1900B.C.E., when all the buildings were destroyed in a catastrophe. After 1,700 B.C.E. the grand palaces of Knossos, Phaistos and Hagia Triada were rebuilt out of the ruins. It was the Golden Age which lasted until about 1400 B.C.E., then Crete, not unlike Atlantis, was suddenly wiped out, and this time forever. The noted scholar Ignatious Donnelly was convinced that all the archetypal Gods and Goddesses of the Aryans had in their origin been simply Kings and Queens of Atlantis. Indeed, this theory as it stands may seem as startling today as it most certainly did 100 years ago.
Until 1960, the oldest human was believed to be the 300,000-500,000 year old Java -Peking Man. But in that year Dr. L.S.B. Leakey discovered the Ainjanthropus, age 600,000 years, in Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, Africa. Three years later, he found another man called Homo-Habilis, believed to be 1.85 million years old. But, Dr. Johannes Heurezeler of Basel University in Switzerland found a complete skeleton hundreds of feet deep in an Italian coal mine. His conclusion is that it was definitely a humanoid, classified as a ten million year old man. Modern animals and plants, in remarkably well preserved condition, were near the fossil, and all were found to be of the same age. Such animals and plants were not known to exist in that time....yet, there they were....and here we are... still inching along trying to unravel the vast, illusive mysteries of our being, time and the universe. The veil that shrouds both past and future still remains. Yes, the world is a strange and baffling place, and holds to itself so many, many secrets.

"Of all things that are, The most ancient is God, For He is uncreated, The most
beautiful is the universe, For it is God's workmanship. The greatest is space, For
it holds all things. The swiftest is mind, For it speeds everywhere. The strongest,
necessity, For it masters all. The wisest, Time, For it brings everything to light."
...........................Thales (circa 636-546 B.C.E.)
