The new year as started its now March and I have managed to post nothing in all this time. When I notice this on other blogs I smile to myself. There are periods where the life just does not permit time for anything other than the here and now. I am in the middle of one of those stages.
Apart from that here and now attention that life insists on taking from me, I am going through many transformations as we all are. Those transformations are part of the reason of my being and its quite liberating to be a part of the entire realm.
There is another side of Egypt that is not so widely known. Egypt is also the land of secrets. Another history, a secret history, tells of Egypt as the inheritor of deep wisdom and magical ability from an even earlier culture. It is the account of the Egyptians themselves. This alternate history is echoed by parallel accounts from the myth and history of other ancient cultures, as well as myriad secret societies and occult sources. The remarkable number of parallels in these stories provides a unique window into this other Egypt.
A new kind of counterculture is emerging around the unexpected discoveries of a small but growing circle of scientists, authors and researchers. The focal point of this counterculture centers on an alternative interpretation of ancient Egypt – not as mankind’s earliest attempts at primitive civilization, but as a fully developed, and inexplicably advanced culture, who’s scientific and metaphysical achievements we are only beginning to fully appreciate.
“Among the earliest civilizations were the diverse peoples living in the fertile valleys lying between the Tigris and Euphrates valley, or Mesopotamia, which in Greek means, “between the rivers.” In the south of this region, in an area now in Kuwait and northern Saudi Arabia, a mysterious group of people, speaking a language unrelated to any other human language we know of, began to live in cities, which were ruled by some sort of monarch, and began to write. These were the Sumerians, and around 3000 BC they began to form large city-states in southern Mesopotamia that controlled areas of several hundred square miles. The names of these cities speak from a distant and foggy past: Ur, Lagash, Eridu. These Sumerians were constantly at war with one another and other peoples, for water was a scarce and valuable resource. The result over time of these wars was the growth of larger city-states as the more powerful swallowed up the smaller city-states. Eventually, the Sumerians would have to battle another peoples, the Akkadians, who migrated up from the Arabian Peninsula. The Akkadians were a Semitic people, that is, they spoke a Semitic language related to languages such as Hebrew and Arabic. When the two peoples clashed, the Sumerians gradually lost control over the city-states they had so brilliantly created and fell under the hegemony of the Akkadian kingdom which was based in Akkad, the city that was later to become Babylon.”
This has been a burning question for me personally. I straddle the fence with my opinion .. some of my reasoning is out of ignorance, having never been a police officer to experience the issues they face first hand.
One thought is that we absolutely rely on our police service for protection, national protection; the uniform alone says ‘rely on me 100%; i protect you, you can depend on me; i am here to help you and your family’ and so in that mind set there is no room for the option of an officer going on strike. Why and what can possibly be allowed to go so wrong for SOOOO long, that striking seems the best option. Why is the government not making our protection, our national protection a priority. National security is of the utmost importance to every country.
If striking were not an option what would be the alternative?
