Does history Matter?
on who you talk to it does and it doesn't. For some who are completely content,
all that matters is this moment but for those who feel uncertain about the
nature and purpose of life, they look to history for clues and reasons for our
In examining our history, the field of archaeology has developed. But this is
not an exact science and the results of all our archaeological excavations and
research produce results and answers which are suppositions and not facts. Of
course many archaeologists and researchers dress up the evidence to fit into
their particular theory.
Classical mythology is that of the Christian Bible in which all Christian biased
researchers interpret all evidence as supporting Biblical theory. The Egyptian
pyramids are a great source of contention as are many other legacy structures
around the world.
The Egyptian pyramids have an alignment with constellation of Orion, but given
the Earth's movement through space and time, that alignment occurred about
10,500 years ago. Similarly the Sphinx being a lion image that one would
associate with the constellation of Leo was last facing the constellation 10,500
years ago. Geologists who have examined the Sphinx estimate from the weathering
patterns and our limited knowledge of the regions climate estimated the Sphinx
could have been constructed more than 35,000 years ago.
Climate change is something that archaeologists do not seem to take into
account. For instance the Sinai Peninsula that is desert today was home to the
African animals that were captured for the Roman blood sports. When Alexander
marched east with his armies, he found a contemporary civilisation in the Oxis
river valley. In fact at this time, it was possible to sail from the
Mediterranean through the black sea and throat natural waterway into the
Caspian. From there a waterway connected to the Aral Sea and the Oxis river was
navigable by boat through northern Afghanistan.
In terms of the origin of our species, we seem to know very little. The accepted
theory of Darwinian evolution is that we evolved from the apes through a
succession of intermediary proto-human forms. One of the interesting questions
here is that as there is no direct evidence of this, how is it that they are a

Given the unimaginable vastness of the universe or as many people now think, a
multi-verse in which there is not just one universe but an infinite number of
universes. It is possible that existence may have been created through
consciousness which seems more likely than it being an unconscious random event
as there are two sides of existence; consciousness and energy.
Modern science has confirmed what the Buddha's and Yogi's understand that the
universe is devoid of any inherent existence and that all life and all matter is
a temporary manifestation of energy shaped by consciousness. This is why when
consciousness leaves our bodies, the body returns to its basic elements that
have their own consciousness. So even our material world, the soil, the stone,
and the air we breathe can also evaporate into nothingness or pure energy
without form until there is another dance with consciousness.
While we humans individuate ourselves, we too are manifestations of
consciousness and one of the challenges in life is to resonate with that
consciousness. To do this, all we need do is to become as Buddha or Christ.
Unfortunately mankind is becoming more absorbed into materialism and turning the
planet into a living hell.
It could well be in light of all the evidence that we are here to discover our
humanity. The pyramid shape is representation that life feeds upon life in order
to sustain physicality and the economic parallel is that the work of the poor
and dispossessed maintain the wealth and privilege of a small elite.
Pyramids exist all over the world. The in 2014 archaeologists unearthed a
pyramid structure in Java that has been reliably dated to 35,000 years ago.
There are pyramids in China, North and South America and there is a pyramid in
Bosnia more than twice the size of the great Pyramid at Gaza.
The experts tell us that the great Pyramid at Gaza was constructed as a tomb
some 5000 years ago. But it is interesting that it lacks all the funerary
decoration common to all other Egyptian burials. There is a group of scientists
who have calculated that this pyramid could have been used as an electrical
generator that distributed electricity through the atmosphere in a similar
manner as Nicola Tesla tried to develop.
The only thing we know for certain about our distant past is that we do not
know. We also know that we do not know much about our immediate past because all
the books ever written have been compiled to suit a political agenda. In Western
culture all we have are collections of myths and legends that some base their
lives upon whereas in India the Vedas are a more accurate historical record that
support Buddhist and yogic philosophy.
What these accounts tell us is that past, present and future exist
simultaneously here and now, and that if we were to attain enlightenment, then
we would know.
Looking now is out human civilisation our right to life, to liberty and even
self-knowledge is being withheld by the powerful elite. People's opinions are
dressed up as historic facts and truths of reality. As a population we are being dumbed down with misinformation and the chemical cocktail in our water and food
In a reasonably short period, we have gone from a feudal administration to
democracy or communism. These two systems of governance attempted to ensure some
social equity and freedom for the population, but these systems were perfect for
the growth of capitalism which has given way to the corporatism that dominates
the world today.
In our ignorance we have gone with the flow and succumbed to our slavery. We
have always known that we were confined to this planetary environment, we have
been hoodwinked into surrendering our real freedom and much of our happiness in
order to serve our corporate masters.
We may think that casting votes at the polling station as being responsible, but
it matters not really who is in government as governments to our subservient to
the corporate masters despite the fact that their purpose is to protect the
public commons and the rights and freedoms of the people.
The current course of civilisation is total destruction in large part because
the United States of America cannot survive without enemies. It uses every
pre-text to sow seeds of disharmony and create war. It is the military muscle
behind corporate greed and it has become a manifestation of greed itself. But
the consequences a deep internal suffering that is ripping apart the fabric of
As the Buddha said, "suffering stems from ignorance". While we go on pretending
that we know the truth, we will perpetuate ignorance and further suffering. It's
time to recognise that we do not know and ask again why are we here?
But let's remember that we are not completely ignorant, there are some things
that we do know. For instance, we know that the fire is hot and therefore we
avoid putting a hand into it because to do so would cause suffering. Therefore
we know that we do not like suffering.
We know that we live on this planet with many other people like ourselves as
well as all the many other species and we know that none of them like to suffer.
Therefore we need to moderate our activities so that we do not cause suffering
We also know that when we receive kindness, it makes us feel good and we know
that everyone and every living thing likes to feel good. Therefore we should
moderate our activities to help other people to feel good. The real lesson
from history is that we don't know and we need to focus on what we do
know for the collective happiness and survival of not only our species, but all
Christmas is a time of celebration for many people in the world. For Christians
it's about the birth of Jesus and the virgin birth. For the Egyptians who
remember is about the birth of Horus and his virgin birth. Both of these
gentlemen of the same message to humanity and Christmas is a time to reflect.
Santa Claus on the other hand on that message comes from the Sami traditions in
northern Scandinavia where Santa Claus was a wizard who was able to produce
something from nothing; in other words he could manipulate energy into matter.
Unfortunately this tradition has been taken over by corporatism and the real
magic has been lost. Corporatism and capitalism creates suffering and suffering
leads to physical and spiritual death.
It's time to revise our history, to remember that life comes from life, so stop
and do some deep breathing, and remember that deep within our soul we have the
potential to give life and joy, to ourselves and each other.
