Homo Sapiens Sapiens


Homo Sapiens Sapiens

By Xavier S├ęguin


Homo sapiens sapiens, that’s our latin scientific name, meaning “the man who knows that he knows.” But what does he know exactly? Not much. Because he quickly forget those who lived before him. Like Tintin’s Unicorn
If we give credit to historians, human memory wouldn’t exceed 3000 years. Before that, it’s a blackhole. The wall of ignorance. Recently, thanks to DNA, man can know a bit more about himself and where he comes from. Science keeps silent. Loudly. Elsewhere, philosophies, mythologies and religions give different answers. Like Tintin did  with the scrolls of parchment to get let’s try to superpose them all, so the secret message could be seen through.
What does science think about the delicate question of our origins? “The dinosaurs’ disappearance, 65 million years ago, opens the way to the development of mammals. Biped primates appeared 3 million years ago. First, Homo habilis, our oldest ancestor, estimated 3 million years old, is located in
More patience is required, and around 500 000 years ago, all the fossils found are in a way of “sapientization”: Homo erectus evolves into modern man.
150,000 years ago, Homo sapiens appeared in Africa, then in Asia 100 000 years ago, then in Europe 40,000 years ago: it’s Cro-Magnon. Little by little he supplanted archaic Hominidae species, like Homo sapiens neandertalensis.” Here is the official speech that the majority of scientists have been standing up for at least a century. Yet, exceptions are not missing: here and there, far more ancient human fossils contradict that theory.
Scientists Don’t Care….To them, nothing can cast doubt on the main theory. They name those exceptions: singularities. A wonderful scientific invention to mask the weaknesses of a dogmatic theory. If there are only a few exception to the rule, it is accepted. But when the number of exceptions exceeds the number of facts defended by the theory, they are no longer singularities, the theory must be revised. It is happening now, in numerous science fields. But chiefly in the evolution field.
Though neo-darwinians still stand up for it. That’s the last straw for evolutionists, this refusal to evolve!
In the 19th century,  Charles Darwin proposed his theory about evolution, in which we are cousins with apes. Through time, that model became a dogma, and then it became the “absolute truth”. “When a paleo-anthropologist finds the fossil of a Homo sapiens, he doesn’t dare to date it beyond 150 000 years of age, even if the layer where he found it is far older.” (source)  Out of cowardice or realism, young researchers learn fast how to think like old scientists.
Darwin’s Dogma
Now the most widespread datation method consists in comparing the fossil with the ones from the books, and deducing a corresponding age accordingly. A scandalous practice, totally non-scientific. Claude Bernard must be turning in his grave. Many topics of the official scientific doctrine are contentious. Not all the fossils are unanimously approved. Some questionable datations can’t always exclude Homo sapiens’ existence in much older times.
But darwinism is no more a hypothesis, nor a theory, it became a scientific dogma. And not only that: it follows the outlines of the prevailing ultra-liberal economy. How could such a situation disturb the scientific mechanism so that it goes the wrong way round? How can we allow researchers to follow their tracks without suffering ideological pressures? However, fans of infallible science should put another record on. Science is human made, its limits are those of this imperfect world.
When science becomes a sect, it loses its soul. And all those who blindly follow it contribute to its ruin.
    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. (Arthur Schopenhauer)

Entering a Sober New Age


Entering a Sober New Age

by talk2momz

Here’s a teaching I’ve heard posited by some in the new age family: The problems, issues, and relationship challenges in life are direct reflections of me. Or in other words: the drama on the outside reflects some ‘I caused it’ drama on the inside of me. I’ve beaten myself up enough over the years asking… “Why did I create that!?” I didn’t. We do co-create, but it is through our response to what is before us.
Here’s another new age teaching that rings true to me: The problems and issues in life are part of the collective consciousness that we are born into, to be a part of, to respond to, and evolve within: it’s the ‘story’ that serves as the framework for our evolutionary journey. In other words, free will within the ‘ever beginning’ story.
As we go within to uncover who we are, we begin to see the value of honesty and respect in that both change the way we feel inside – we enjoy a cleaner feel (vibration). From there we begin to practice truth, which means we find a way to tell the truth and keep our word even when we’d rather not. We also begin to practice love by finding a way to respond from the heart: listening, respecting, perceiving… even when it is difficult. This is how we create a world that reflects us: through the elixir of truth and love – in practice.
The New Age Movement is today’s subject. For me, the term New Age covers a very wide spectrum of thought related to the life of the spirit and understanding and experiencing what God truly is. It appealed to me in the ‘70s: the liberate myself aspect.
Now I see New Age as having expanded a lot, stretching all the way from the shallow side of fashion and specialness to a very advanced multi-dimensional knowledge and experience of Divinity within and of Creation itself. Quite a stretch!
Perhaps I should clarify that I’ve been a Sober new ager since the ’70s. (Thanks to Soren for the term “Sober new ager’.) Spiritual life is not something we dabble in; not a ‘lifestyle’. It is natural, and it seems to always have been: the natural yearning to know who we are. We sometimes refer to it as a journey.
The more we participate, the more we hear new age specialized terminology. In fact, the terminology stands out. For some it is a turn-off, others are conversant with it. I don’t know how we’ll create the next stage, but I imagine that in the coming years people will be communicating differently: speaking and understanding on a number of levels in a ‘feel-thought’ way. We’re not there yet, but it is our task.
An intriguing story I was exposed to as a child had to do with all people speaking one language, followed by the deconstruction of communication into many languages. It’s the Tower of Babel story. Apparently at some point, thousands of years ago, after the flood, humans reached an elevated consciousness. But… they began to be ungrateful and arrogant, seeing themselves as greater than the Infinite Source. This brought about a separation of tongues or languages, so they could no longer understand each other.
Now, thousands of years later, seeing how far that separation has taken us, we can incorporate the lessons of the story. Once again humanity is expanding in consciousness. We know, from the past example, what ingratitude and arrogance bring about. What the people at that time failed to do, we must do: surrender to the Infinite Source. There is actually no other option in the midst of this confusion. We must turn fully toward that which we know is divine – Truth and Love: be it, build it, return to it.
What does ‘surrender to the infinite source’ really mean in sober new age language? It means that God (Infinite Source) uses us as a light – a unique expression of Itself in form. Surrender to who you are. Do you understand? From the human being Truth is expressed; Love is the conduit of our expression.
Let’s look at reconstruction of heart-based communication.
Separation comes from use of specialized terms, or not pausing to define. Can we express the things on our minds and in our hearts without using specialized (by us for us) terminology? For many things I think we can, and we can certainly pause to define a fairly new term.
Recently I was listening to an Internet channel that I enjoy. In this show, the person being interviewed said: “Who’s to say a code carrier and code talker can’t open a portal wherever they are, you know, and realign their home to the grids even though the grids might not be in proper alignment around them, just through intention and conscious prayer. Who’s to say we don’t have those skills? You know, we do have those skills. Why not try it – why not find out ourselves.”
Wow… I appreciate that encouragement… if I understand it.
Do I know what codes and grids and portals are? Not sure I do. Hidden information could be delivered in so many ways to those ‘in the know’. If this is food for those who are beyond where I am, well, I’ll keep listening and see if it becomes more apparent. On the other hand, if codes and grids and portals are not new, but something we have been picking up on by ‘feel’ or perception, or responding to subconsciously, and we just haven’t attached a name to it, that would be good to know too.
Are there teachers with a lot of metaphysical experience? Sure there are – more and more every day. Can they communicate with the intention of reaching all on the journey, at whatever stage? Some of the teachers do it very well, and always have. Others easily can, perhaps if they hear a request, they will.
We play a role in this ascension/expansion of consciousness; we don’t just experience it – we create it. To do so, we aim to make it real. Welcome to the Sober new age.
