    Childhood Demons

    When I was 23, my father died. I would have preferred to have nothing to do with his demise. We hadn’t spoken since I left when I was 18, and with good reason. However, he had, for some unfathomable reason, left everything to me. The house where I’d grown up. His small savings account. A mess of different collectables.

    Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!

    Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!

    Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars has a great line in his hit song “Uptown Funk.” The line is “Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!” This line makes me think of all the people who have been counted out, disregarded or marginalized because they didn’t follow the “established set of rules.” They have been called names like strange, odd, different, or a little off. A kinder statement is they are a free spirit.

    Space Age Mermaid

    Sulily sleeps suspended inside a transparent, cylindrical womb filled with luminous blue fluid. Her suit sticks to her body like a second skin and has knobby nodes that run up the length of her spine and end at the soft helmet's base at the back of her neck. From the center of the helmet, wires fan outward and upward, gathering at the control center at the top of the container. Her mouth and nose are covered by a breathing apparatus with a serpentine root that coils and stretches down to the base of the cylinder.

    The Amazon Is on Fire but There Is Hope

    2019 has not been kind to the Amazon Rainforest with more than 40,000 fires across the region this year alone. Scientists from Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research have determined that this year alone has seen the fastest rate of burning since the organization began a record-keeping survey on the health of the rainforest in 2013. In fact, the toxic smoke from the fires is so intense that many parts of Brazil now lay under darkness, and in some places, hours before the sun could even start setting.

    The Seven Laws of Origami

    Akira Yoshizawa, a teenager in the nineteen-twenties, quit his factory job and proceeded to turn paper-folding into a fine art. Today, origami kits are common and consist of a booklet of instructions and a set of colored paper. The paper is two-sided with a different color on each side. The instructions, consisting of mostly of arrows and lines, are a part of a worldwide standard of visual language for origami that Akira pioneered. He also invented the wet folding technique, which allows for more sculptural interpretations.

The very idea of being able to physically travel back in time and experience life from the very first second is a dream and fantasy many people have had. And I am no exception to daydreaming about unordinary things. Such fantasies reflect a deeper yearning for doing something idealistic, but which is completely out of reach.

They tell a story of the past. A harsh, painful one that brought the kingdom to its glory. One of respect and dignity. In that kingdom lies a prince. Young, full of grace and loyal to his people. He wears a coat of blues and reds. A crown of silver, with rows of ruby’s lining the prestige that resides upon his black locks. It was said for century’s he would be the one to bring the two kingdoms together. Either by force or marriage.

    The truth about overunity

    The truth about overunity

    I am the father of over Unity, I came up with this technology in 1981 as you will see there's never been a real definition for over Unity because it was stolen from the person who actually developed Theory. Of course I coined the phrase from things I experience through life, so let me introduce you to Tri cycle physics something I realized later that I grab these phrases from my training as a Buddhist, the physics part came after trying to explain what no one could explain. in the first place i just gave you my point of my understanding on my way of life called Buddhism. The cycles of life have been well known in the Buddhist practice for hundreds of years, I'm telling you this because there are many types of definition which you can see below which tries to explain what they think over Unity is, but when you go to the source and ask him did they make this science or Theory most of them if they're honest will tell you no, the others will have no answer for you oh, but if you do meet someone that says they came up with the idea then ask them show me a working model.

    As the story begins, the magic unfolds. As the veil begins to fall down, the blind fold crumbles to a million pieces of star dust. Even the blind fold holds the answers to the secrets. An energy created with the intention to cover up what is beneath the surface, yet as the intention that initially created the blind fold changes, it is now created to heighten awareness. The shedding represents a process; awakening, transforming. It represents that energy is energy, love is love. It’s simply the intention behind it that gives it direction.

It is only a question of where, when and by who, but on an international level, the activity leading up to that has been well underway, though you wouldn't know it by looking at the news media. Though outlets like ABC, Bloomberg, and Space.com will occasionally cover time travel science stories, but if they do it is always seen as a far off notion or only theoretical and always based on Einstein's theories of Relativity - Einstein, a man who didn't even believe in time travel to the past and as if nothing else has happened over the last 100 years.
