If I take a lamp and shine it toward the wall, a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. Too often, we assume that the light on the wall is God, but the light is not the goal of the search, it is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall, the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it. Similarly, someone who does not search – who does not bring a lantern – sees nothing.
What we perceive as God is the by-product of our search for God. It may simply be an appreciation of the light… pure and unblemished… not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light and assume that we are the center of the universe – God looks astonishingly like we do – or we turn to look at our shadow and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way, we defeat the purpose, which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty and in all its flaws; and in so doing, better understand the world around us.
"God created us in his image." Nah bruh, we created 'him' in our image. Too many mistranslated texts yet we have been programmed to believe it. The more I meditate and open my third eye, the more I realize that every religion is not the truth but the truth lies in every religion. So I let it all go and became spiritual instead. Best decision I ever made yo. --TophCookieWhat is commonly believed in our day and age that could be proven false in the future?
The grandest myth about Autism is that the disorder is caused by vaccines. This stems from research published in 1998 by former British gastroenterologist and medical, Andrew J. Wakefield, which linked the MMR Vaccine to Autism and bowel disease. This research created a kind of mass hysteria -- a hysteria that was further perpetuated by celebrity moms such as Jenny McCarthy, who publically blamed vaccines for her son's autism.
Truth: There is no link between autism and vaccines.
We can't overstate this enough: "There is no link," says Michael Rosenthal, Ph.D., a pediatric neuropsychologist who specializes in autism at the Child Mind Institute in New York City. "Every good study we have showed that there was no science behind this claim."
In fact, Dr. Wakefield's paper has been officially retracted and he lost his job and his medical license. Still, the vaccines-can-cause-autism myth has proven surprisingly durable: "I think it hangs around because parents are scared and desperate," Dr. Rosenthal explains, noting that "there is also a timing issue because we first see signs of autism around the same time these vaccines are administered. But it's simply a coincidence." In fact, new research has pinpointed lack of eye contact as a warning sign of autism in babies as young as 2 months--before they've received most of their shots.
Oh God, lead us from the unreal to the Real. Oh God, lead us from darkness to light. Oh God, lead us from death to immortality. Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all. Oh Lord God almighty, may there be peace in celestial regions. May there be peace on earth. May the waters be appeasing, May herbs be wholesome, and may trees and plants bring peace to all. May all beneficent beings bring peace to us. May thy Vedic Law propagate peace all through the world. May all things be a source of peace to us. And may thy peace itself bestow peace on all, and may that peace come to me also.
BUDDHIST PRAYER FOR PEACE
May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freeimage from their illnesses. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another. May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wildernesses—the children, the aged, the unprotected—be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.
JAINIST PRAYER FOR PEACE
Peace and Universal Love is the essence of the Gospel preached by all the Enlightened Ones. The Lord has preached that equanimity is the Dharma. Forgive do I creatures all, and let all creatures forgive me. Unto all have I amity, and unto none enmity. Know that violence is the root cause of all miseries in the world. Violence, in fact, is the knot of bondage. “Do not injure any living being.” This is the eternal, perennial, and unalterable way of spiritual life. A weapon howsoever powerful it may be, can always be superseded by a superior one; but no weapon can, however, be superior to non-violence and love.
MUSLIM PRAYER FOR PEACE
In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful. Praise be to the Lord of the Universe who has created us and made us into tribes and nations, that we may know each other, not that we may despise each other. If the enemy incline toward peace, do thou also incline toward peace, and trust in God, for the Lord is the one that heareth and knoweth all things. And the servants of God, Most Gracious are those who walk on the Earth in humility, and when we address, them, we say “PEACE.”
SIKH PRAYER FOR PEACE
“God adjudges us according to our deeds, not the coat that we wear: that Truth is above everything, but higher still is truthful living.” Know that we attaineth God when we loveth, and only that victory endures in consequence of which no one is defeated.
BAHAI’ PRAYER FOR PEACE
Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be fair in they judgement, and guarded in thy speech. Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness, and a home to the stranger. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be a breath of life to the body of humankind, a dew to the soil of the human heart, and a fruit upon the tree of humility.
SHINTO PRAYER FOR PEACE
“Although the people living across the ocean surrounding us, I believe, are all our brothers and sisters, why are there constant troubles in this world? Why do winds and waves rise in the ocean surrounding us? I only earnestly wish that the wind will soon puff away all the clouds which are hanging over the tops of the mountains.”
NATIVE AFRICAN PRAYER FOR PEACE
Almighty God, the Great Thumb we cannot evade to tie any knot; the Roaring Thunder that splits mighty trees; the all-seeing Lord up on high who sees even the footprints of an antelope on a rock mass here on Earth. You are the one who does not hesitate to respond to our call. You are the cornerstone of peace.
NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER FOR PEACE
Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you. To your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children. Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace in mind. Let us learn to share all the good things that you provide for us on this Earth.
ZOROASTRIAN PRAYER FOR PEACE
We pray to God to eradicate all the misery in the world: that understanding triumph over ignorance, that generosity triumph over indifference, that trust triumph over contempt, and that truth triumph over falsehood.
JEWISH PRAYER FOR PEACE
Come let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, that we may walk the paths of the Most High. And we shall beat our swords into ploughshares and our spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation—neither shall they learn war any more. And none shall be afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of Hosts has spoken.
CHRISTIAN PRAYER FOR PEACE
Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS, for they shall be known as the Children of God. But I say to you that hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To those who strike you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from those who take away your cloak, do not withhold your coat as well. Give to everyone who begs from you, and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again. And as you wish that others would do to you do, do so to them.”
As you read this, the American public and peoples of the world are being "educated" about asteroids/meteors/comets, and the deleterious effects they can have on the Earth and "life" here. The fringe loonies are being filled with stories of "Planet X", Nibiru, the "dark star" and/or "Wormwood" on its way to collide with Earth. Various movies, "Armageddon", "Deep Impact", and books "Lucifer's Hammer", etc., are made specifically so human minds can "imagine" the scenario. The "Fatima" prophecies given to the popes from some illiterate girls who had a vision, caused the catholic church to build a huge telescope down in Chile to watch for the planetoid on its way in.
As you read this, Aryan astronomers are searching the skies and locating any potential comets, meteors or asteroid candidates, not too big, not too small for the proposed massive depopulation plan.
The object that hits will have been "tipped" in to collision course on purpose. The Aryans who do it will claim it was an "accident". History, i.e. primitive survivors sitting around campfires, telling the story, will say it was an act of god. Due to overpopulation pressure the "Aryans" have a plan to massively depopulate the planet. According to one of the eldest Aryans on the planet, Edward Teller, father of the H-bomb, now finally dead, we just have to knock the oncoming meteor aside. What the Aryans have in mind, however, is to knock the appropriate sized meteor into a collision course.
The meaningful "governments" all have deep underground shelters, some as large as cities holding 10,000 people. If the object hits the ocean, it kicks water into the atmosphere, if it hits land it kicks dirt into the atmosphere. Either way "nuclear winter" scenario takes place. Sunlight will be blocked for a year, no food crops will grow. Most of the seed stocks have been hybridized by the conglomerates, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill and others, so they only grow one season, the seeds produced by hybridized plants are sterile and cannot grow new plants. The greedy corporations have done this so third world countries have to go into debt borrowing money from the ferrets at the The International Monetary Fund and World Bank in order to buy seeds each year. Under "Nuclear Winter" scenario, it only takes three years for 3 billion or more people to starve to death and/or kill each other for food.
It has been ascertained by the Council on Foreign Relations that unless drastic measures are taken before 2020 that there will be no quality of life for anyone. AIDS is germ warfare but it is not happening fast enough. Germ warfare "bird-flu" pandemic is planned.
When the engineered infrastructure breakdown occurs, the government goes underground, FEMA declares martial law and the government retires under the aegis of the FRA (Federal Relocation Arc-200 underground survival centers). then they fly the remotely controlled silent disk craft, tell us we are "under alien attack, please remain in your homes, don't riot, let us handle this". They never have to use the army to control population because they have the phony "alien" attack, a "common enemy". Causing belief in "aliens" on Earth has been the largest mind control project since MK-ULTRA. They have caused all the dimwits to believe in aliens. Please don't misunderstand, there is plenty of intelligent "life" in this Galaxy, it just has not come here in the last 2 million years. Almost every "alien abductee" can be back engineered and shown to be a mind control victim.
To those very few humans who have actually "seen" something strange, it is most likely that your sighting was "inter-dimensional" and not extraterrestrial. There are no extraterrestrials on Earth at this time.
What happens if the Plan doesn't work?
If they are not able to execute the Plan, massive population thinning will be blamed on acts of terrorism. Human version of bird flu designed. SARS for China, Hanta for Navajos. Note: Humans reading this who work for various intelligence organizations, NSA, CIA, DIA, FEMA, etc., homeland insecurity and social mind control experts, be aware that you have been compartmentalized. Wake up! You are a part of the greatest genocidal murder plot in recorded history, far more heinous than the holocaust. You are just a cog in the wheel for the rulers of planet Earth. Cannon fodder. They won't need you after the infrastructure breaks down, your usefulness will be over.
For information on the history and current day comments on silent flying disks. go to (LOOK Magazine article 1955) The aptly named "shadow government" is already in place, "practicing" survival underground.
DESPITE HUNDREDS OF "eyewitness" accounts of flying saucers, none has been captured and no government has come forward to take credit (or blame) for their reported aerial shenanigans. So, barring the possibility that the saucers are from other planets (a theory ardently supported by science-fiction fans), it seems reasonable to conclude that "there ain't no such animal."
But persistent and fairly credible rumors recur that a Canadian aircraft manufacturer, A. V. Roe, Canada, Ltd., has had a saucer design under development for two years. One report has it that the project was abandoned by the Canadian government because it would cost over $75 million to get a prototype flying model into the air. The A. V. Roe people maintain a confusing silence about the whole thing. They can't deny the project has been abandoned because they never announced it had begun. Our own Air Force offers "no comment."
At a recent meeting of engineers, it was indicated that, while flying saucer or sphere projects may still be purely hypothetical, new air-defense problems are setting up requirements for aircraft performance that would seem to be most ideally met by a saucer craft such as illustrated above.
One problem, recently stated by Brig. Gen. Benjamin Kelsey, deputy director of research and development of the Air Force, is this: "Airplanes today spend too much time gathering speed on the ground and not enough flying in the air." Today's fighters, he pointed out, need extremely long runways and there are few in existence that are now long enough. These few, and the concentration of the planes using them, provide a worth-while target for an A-bomb. With a single blow, the enemy might cripple a substantial portion of our air defense.
Planes that could take off vertically would not need long runways, which cost millions of dollars. They could be dispersed widely and safely. In this country, four vertical-rising aircraft already have been revealed. All but one, however, are modifications of conventional plane designs. None yet approaches the performance a true saucer might be capable of.
What are the requirements of an ideal defense fighter? 1) Ability to take off and land vertically; 2) high speed of over Mach 2. (more than 1500 mph); 3) high rate of climb; 4) excellent maneuverability; 5) heavy armament; 6) ability to operate at 60,000 feet.
These sketches indicate a highly educated guess of what a flying saucer to fulfill these requirements would look like. It provides for a one-man crew, housed in a glass bubble that would provide excellent visibility.
The prone position of the pilot not only allows improved streamlining but also enables the pilot to withstand high accelerations and quick turns. The design contemplates use of cannon, rockets or guided missiles. Exact armament would depend on the mission. The target would be sighted by radar, and the actual firing would be computed and accomplished electronically, as in several interceptors now in operation.
Power unit is key to design. The whole success of the saucer design depends on the unusual engine. The sketched design is remarkably similar to a conventional jet engine but is many times larger. It consists of a set of combustion chambers and a large turbine. These produce blasts of propulsive air around the circumference of the saucer. Air entering the intakes around the pilots cockpit is deflected to the engine. This pressurized air is swept up by the impeller, with a subsequent rise in pressure and temperature. Next, the air goes to the combustion chamber, where fuel is added and ignited and a propulsive gas is formed.
The hot gases rush through the turbine blades, in the process turning the impeller wheel. The gas then expands and exhausts at high velocity through the many-fingered jet pipes. The large turbine acts as a stabilizing gyroscope keeping the plane level even when it is hovering.
Design is structurally strong. The saucer shape lends itself to engineering for strength much more readily than a conventional aircraft does, with its long fuselage, thin wings and troublesome tail unit.
The simple saucer shape makes structural rigidity much less of a problem. New materials will also come into the picture. Titanium, for example, is 60 per cent heavier than aluminum but with qualities of steel and is not as vulnerable to temperature effects as the light alloys now used in supersonic planes.
Landing problems are simple. In contrast to present vertical take-off designs, the saucer need not make a touchy stall-type landing. It is already in the correct flight attitude for landing and only the forward jets need be switched on and all jets deflected downward to provide the necessary lift to hover and land.
This description is brief and highly simplified. Military security and rapidly changing defense problems not only cloud many details of a project like this but also obscure whether anything comparable actually exists. But based on the current requirements of our defense effort and the demonstrated abilities of our designers, an educated guess is that a flying saucer much like this one may well be flying within the next few years.
About the Illustrations
This design study for a flying saucer fighter was prepared for LOOK by Thomas Turner, a 30 year old British aeronautical engineer now employed by Republic Aviation Corp. A Canadian saucer project that may resemble it in some details has long been rumored. Turner points out that the design could be arrived at independently and is only one of several possible approaches to the construction of a saucer craft.

A news study shows that it may one day be possible to detect [yadawiki link="Autism Spectrum Disorder" show="Autism"] with a blood test. Shaun Heasley tells how researchers may have discovered unique identifiers in blood that signal Autism may be present in the subject.
Autism May Be Detectable In Blood
The study involved blood samples collected from 83 children with autism and 76 neurotypical children ages 3 to 10 at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Rather than examining one particular gene or a single biomarker, researchers used big data techniques to take a broader look in order to find statistically significant patterns.
Many children with Autism are seem to explore their world differently than their non-autistic piers. The following article looks into this.
Autism and the Drive to Explain and Explore
A new study looks at whether kids diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder and those without differ in how they explore and seek explanations in physical and social domains. Tania Lombrozo explains.
As with all children, we should encourage exploration and explanation of the world around them. Parents of ASD children are in for a real treat with this behavior, just have patience.
More genetic level studies are being done to try and discover the keys to the Autism puzzle.
Mapping Of Genomes Leads To Breakthrough Study On Disorder
A new study on Autism released Tuesday reveals 18 new candidate genes.
The study, published in Nature Neuroscience, was the largest study of whole genomes ever done. More than 5,000 people were studied who either had autism or had a child or sibling that did. In other words, the researchers looked at the genes of people who are in families with autism spectrum disorder, according to the study.
This gentleman is an inspiration to all on the Spectrum and their parents. Sure, not everyone with ASD will be able to accomplish this, but it is great to see that there is potential for those that are higher functioning.
I'm sure every parent with a child on the Spectrum has heard all of these at some time. What is great is that the article offers those unfamiliar with our challenges alternative statements to use.
Things Not to Say to Parents of Children with Autism
Autism and picky eating usually go hand-in-hand, but it's caused by much more than a parent simply not making a child eat certain foods. A clinical study focused on sensory processing and eating problems in children on the spectrum estimates that about 80 percent of children with developmental difficulties, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), struggle with selective eating.
