Archeology {3} ~ How Do Archeologists Discover Clues About The Past?

One way that archaeologists discover and gather clues about the past is by digging very slowly and carefully in the ground. Over time, objects and buildings once used by people can become buried by natural processes, such as by blowing sand or flooding. Past people also buried objects themselves as a way to store them or throw them away. As such, archaeologists often have to dig in order to collect objects made or used by past people (called artifacts) or to find the remains of houses or other buildings (called features). This is called excavation. It is a dirty job, but it can be a lot of fun and is a great way to uncover clues about the past. Most excavations take place at archaeological sites, or locations where people in the past lived, worked, and threw stuff away.

Once they are done digging, archaeologists bring everything they find back to a laboratory. There, artifacts are cleaned, identified, counted, and weighed. These artifacts can then be studied to learn about how people lived in the past. Using artifacts, archaeologists can learn about what people ate, how they built their houses, what games they played, or even what kind of government they had.

While archaeologists have made many discoveries, there is still a lot about the past that is not known. Future archaeologists are needed in order to create a more detailed story of the past.

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {159} ~ Where Healers Are Unable To See The Aura, In What Way Can They Work To Know They Have Got The Right Attunement?

“IT does not matter whether the healer can see the aura. It does not matter whether the healer is able to diagnose. The object of the healer is to heal.

He should not concern himself with these other matters. He has to make himself accessible. He has to be as perfect an instrument as he can. He has to outlaw from his nature all the weaknesses that prevent him from being the perfect instrument. And the more he does that, the greater will be that power that flows through him. It is the life you live that qualifies the attunement you have.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 103

Symbols {194} ~ Anguipedes

Anguipedes had serpents for tails or legs and either a rooster, lion or human head. Abraxas, from Persian origins, was one of the most famous anguiped. He was the ruler of the 365 heavens according to ancient Greecian texts and was called the First Principle. Later the Catholic church called him a demon, but his origins were as a god.

Another well-known anguiped that carried the whip of Helios, the sun god and a shield was called Elias and was the god that Jesus called to when he was being crucified. This belief was held by a cult of people who combined paganism and Judaism in ancient times.

Typhon was depicted as an anguiped in ancient Greco-Roman art close to 400 BC. Typhon was one of the most deadly serpents in Greek mythology. Gaia bore Typhon after the gods destroyed the Giants she had birthed. Typhon challenged Zeus to a battle for the cosmos but lost. Typhon was married to Echidna, another anguiped who had the body of a woman and the legs of a serpent. She gave birth to many creatures including Cerberus, the dog who guarded the gates of hell, Chimera who breathed fire and had the body of a lion, and the tail of a serpent. She was also the grandmother to many other monsters.

The Giants were also anguipedes. They were the children of Gaia and Uranus. The Giants battled the gods and were vanquished. Jupiter, the god of thunder has been depicted riding an anguiped showing the victory of the gods over the giants.

Anguipedes were often depicted in artwork and on coins. Some of the coins that depicted Abraxas and Elias were said to hold magical properties.

~Bombarded By Dark~

As you all know, we are constantly bombarded by the dark side so to say. Its glowing eyes and maniacal laughter have seeped or have tried to make their way into your consciousness, and you must remember not to succumb to its ways {newspapers, television and environments}. Many of you are weary, tired of the fighting, and perturbed by the many changes taking place now. Always remember – you alone have the power to overcome. You can stand up and be a beacon, lighting other beacons, spreading beacons on Gaia. Never give up! ~ DiosRaw

Poetry {212} ~ COMMUNITY SPIRIT

The world feels a dark and complicated morass
Wherein innumerable lost children drift
In and out of the shadows, greeting each other with a smile or ethereal nod

Isolated, lonely hearts playing
With complex emotions in a word staying
Abreast of all the troubling events for better or worse

Light and laughter dwells but a moment precipitates
In tender unions just before fears foment
A cascade of ****** worries filling up the eternal halls

Then a lit flame at first finds another
Huddling in the dark over scraps kali
Left for kindling a fire in the depths of destruction

At first the two but soon three and more
Shelter the faltering fire taking hold for
Reviving communion among the distanced souls

As more join a bonfire starts and talking
Not just of pleasantries you hear while walking
But of sincere connection between scared children discovering they can conquer the dark, united and lonely

Walking the halls of mirrors and shadows

Some children still pass in the dark hall
Knowing not the darkness nor how small yet omnipresent
They really are in the scope of the full extent of the world

But every once in a while, more often as it grows
A child stops and really sees what the others chose
In banding about a fire fueled by the scraps of a difficult time

Together we unite, together we are a bonfire of crackles and smoke and wiffs of collective dreams

Now is the time, set aside the egoic ruminations

Community Spirit.

Psychology Phenomena {54} ~ The Hot-Cold Empathy Gap

A hot-cold empathy gap is a cognitive bias in which people underestimate the influences of visceral drives on their own attitudes, preferences, and behaviors.

The most important aspect of this idea is that human understanding is “state-dependent”. For example, when one is angry, it is difficult to understand what it is like for one to be calm, and vice versa; when one is blindly in love with someone, it is difficult to understand what it is like for one not to be, (or to imagine the possibility of not being blindly in love in the future). Importantly, an inability to minimize one’s gap in empathy can lead to negative outcomes in medical settings (e.g., when a doctor needs to accurately diagnose the physical pain of a patient), and in workplace settings (e.g., when an employer needs to assess the need for an employee’s bereavement leave).

Hot-cold empathy gaps can be analyzed according to their direction:

Hot-to-cold: People under the influence of visceral factors (hot state) don’t fully grasp how much their behavior and preferences are being driven by their current state; they think instead that these short-term goals reflect their general and long-term preferences.
Cold-to-hot: People in a cold state have difficulty picturing themselves in hot states, minimizing the motivational strength of visceral impulses. This leads to unpreparedness when visceral forces inevitably arise.

They can also be classified in regards to their relation with time (past or future) and whether they occur intra- or inter-personally:

Intrapersonal prospective: the inability to effectively predict their own future behavior when in a different state.
Intrapersonal retrospective: when people recall or try to understand behaviors that happened in a different state.
Interpersonal: the attempt to evaluate behaviors or preferences of another person who is in a state different from one’s own.
The term hot-cold empathy gap was coined by Carnegie Mellon University psychologist George Loewenstein. Hot-cold empathy gaps are one of Loewenstein’s major contributions to behavioural science.
