A Short History of Flight

And the national clamour to be seen as the first

People have probably always observed the movement of the birds and the clouds across the sky, people have often dreamt they were flying and consequently dreamed of making fiscal flight a reality. It is documented that the first motorised balloon was created by Shivkar Bapuji and made its d├ębut flight in 1876.

Setting aside other legends, the Wright brothers who were adjacent to one of the worlds most modern and technologically developed cities are credited as being the first to fly a powered aircraft.

However half a world away, Richard William Pearse, a New Zealand farmer and inventor flew and landed a powered heavier-than-air machine on 31 March 1903, nine

Intrigue

Do you explore the fullness of our or do accept opinions

Do the new discoveries in historical research arouse your curiosity, interest and fascinate? It’s not so very long ago that historical research is argued that modern humans arose simultaneously across parts of Eurasia and Africa then blended to give the mix of peoples in the modern world of today.

Over the past hundred years or so, opinions and theories changed, the experts decided that we all emerged from Africa some 60,000 or 70,000 years ago which opened the door way to more mysteries. For instance, when and how did white skin emerge? How did we evolve so many different shades of skin colour and physical features?

By the 1970s

Reality Check

In search of happiness

We call ourselves human beings yet we seem to spend most of our lives doing stuff and then wondering why we’re not happy. To a certain extent we are conned, someone has pulled the wool and we believe that worldly achievement will make us happy. Finding a perfect man to be your anchor or a perfect woman to ease your pains and have your children will make you happy.

All the worldly successes we have produce a temporary happiness and then it’s back to the treadmill to earn more, the social meeting place to hook up or just someone’s sorrows then wonder how the hell you ended up with a particular person next morning.

India Once Ruled the Americas

A snapshot of our suppressed history

The people of India have long known that their ancestors once sailed to and settled in the Americas. They called America Patala, The Under World, not because they believed it to be underground, but because the other side of the globe appeared to be straight down.

Researchers into our history came to the conclusion that the Americas were populated by settlers who crossed the Bering Strait land bridge during the last ice age and eventually populated North and South. There is some contentious evidence of other peoples crossing the Atlantic.

Within the vast archives of Hindu literature, there were seven suptarishies who some 10,000 years

Education Fails

When fictions and beliefs are taught as truths

Most parents want their children to become successful and happy in life, most often with more emphasis on success because they believe that success is the key to happiness. Success as in money is the flag of aspiration and meaning in life that supersedes almost everything else and children today are being driven en-mass towards this ill-defined goal.

Success is a great many things and every individual develops their own interpretation. While the most basic success is to grow into life, reproduce and see one’s children grow into life to the point where one can experience grandchildren represents the greatest universal success because it is biological and represents the natural continuation of

Charity

A real need or a con?

Anywhere we go today in the modern world there will be beggars and charity collectors many who also knock on your door asking for money or support. Online there is a large amount of advertising trying to persuade you to give money to one charity or another and one must acknowledge that charity has become an industry.

Within democratic socialist societies, the nature or structure of that society is such that anyone without paid employment has no means of sustenance and therefore dependent on handouts. The state has tried to keep these people out of sight and out of mind and even today cities legislate to exclude the dispossessed. Should they transgress they

A Call for Change

And a New World Order based on Dharma

Further ideas towards saving humanity.

If the world continues on its present course, by the year 2050, the population will be over 9 billion and everyone will have to learn to survive on 40% less of everything that we enjoy today.

That’s less water, less oxygen, less materials to produce things and the way of modern agriculture we will also have 40% less land because that would been destroyed by agricultural chemical use.

At present we have democracies which have been co-opted by capitalism to serve the interests of the global elite. If we were able to wipe the slate and begin again, economically, everyone would own what

Defining Beauty

A state of perception

Beauty is a concept that crosses all of life, yet it’s as impossible to define as life itself, but there are some commonalities from passive perception to active experience.

At its root, beauty is mathematical as reprsented by the Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers, proportioned and pleasing to the eyes and is also expressed as the ‘golden mean’ or ‘golden ratio’.

Perception is an activity of our senses and to some extent influenced by our education, beliefs and state of mind. A depressed person may not recognise beauty as a happy person may do.
