I think I'm still under the influence of Willie's weed. I can almost get a tiger's head above the obvious one, but it keeps dissolving. I can also get the impression of a leopard above and facing to the right.

I tell you Dan, my imagination is running riot - I can even make out a prehistoric ape like creature. I think I better lie down before they escape from my monitor.

The soapbox thing..

Dan what can we do to put a little 'spirituality' zing in your life?
Everyone has their own take on spirituality... maybe just thinking on the couch with a beer might lead you to a profound spiritual revelation?
Tell me what issues you have with your perception of the overabundance of spirituality topics bouncing around here. I would like to help.
I think when you ponder the fact that:

You are not your body, you are an immortal spiritual being evolving. YOU CAN NEVER DIE. Its impossible..

Its hard not to be a little 'spiritual'.
Luana started a thread about Sacred Geometry...but it just really got no real response. I posted some there and maybe will post some more...but it seemed like a dead subject...because I think most don't really get it yet.
BTW Dan... Sacred Geometry is not just about "sacred" it is all about science...the sacred part is the creative force of it...that creation is all about the relationship between all that is

He's Hideing and no where to be found.

Hey Brook,not being able to verbalise or illustrate step by intricate step, will only frustrate those who are no familiar with sacred geometry.

OK Brinty, now you know how I feel about the marble thing!!!!
The answer is really hidden in plain sight and right in front of you!! HINT= look at the tiger itself.
rhythm, I'm probably more spiritual than I realize I guess, I just can't meditate because my brains going 100 miles an hour and I can't ever empty it long enough to calm down and meditate, LOL
BROOK, I think the sacred geometry thing is fine, but I just don't get it, and I've tried, LOL, Which is weird because I like science things. hmmmm
Luminari, "The Hidden Tiger" is right in front of you, hidden in plain sight! You'll feel as dumb as I did when you see it, it took me about 4 minutes.

Nassim Haramein here it is again

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...99791256390335


http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...75242307393956

Part one and part...both very long...but well worth it...it helped me to gain some understanding....Science is not really my best subject...you Dan on the other hand should understand this quite well....check it out...I warn you it is long...but it gets the point across.Also Dan there is much reference to astrology there...you'll like it

Once again Luminari...thanks for the reference...you have some priceless pearls of wisdom in you my son

Default Re: _AVALON LOUNGE_ Open 24 hours

My housemate is going to EGYPT in 2 days... I have given her cash to buy me a TON of souveniers, exciting.. hoping to go over myself next year, as long as WW3 doesn't break out. fingers crossed, I am determined to go up the great pyramid even if it means spending the night in egyptian jail!

The Japanese tourists have got it down to an artform, here is an interesting account (apologies for the wall of text):


Pyramid climbing had been permissible up to the 1980s until Egyptian authorities forbade it following the deaths of several climbers. Despite the ban, the Great Pyramid is still climbed periodically as author Hancock had done, generally in the dead of night. Sometimes guards are bribed and guides hired to show intrepid climbers the way up. Other climbers prefer to forgo paying unnecessary bribes and find ways of avoiding opportunistic guards.

Interestingly enough, the leading nationality of these thrifty nocturnal climbers are the Japanese. Young Japanese travelers in Egypt have made Pyramid Climbing virtually a profession. They even have a handwritten book about how to do it in one of the hotels in Cairo.

Never Give Up! is the Japanese climber’s motto for surmounting the Pyramid, or as it is written in their book: Never Up Give!

The temptation to climb the Great Pyramid proved too great even for me to ignore despite my academic background in historical preservation and, more importantly, my fear of heights. I had climbed pyramids in Mexico and a minor pyramid or two in Egypt but Cheops just laughed at me. After all, what were these pitiful things compared to the Great Pyramid?

At 450 feet (135 meters), the Great Pyramid is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you’re clinging to the side of it for dear life in the dark, 200 feet up and a sneeze would send you tumbling to the ground in a broken bloody heap.

Before going, I diligently consulted the Japanese book for the necessary information. The book was a compilation of various personal accounts and advice from successful climbers written in both Japanese and English. In addition there were detailed maps on how to sneak into the area and which side to climb.

Around three in the morning, I and another American, Greg, sneaked onto the pyramid grounds. We had both taught English in Egypt for nearly a year and decided we had to climb the pyramid before we left. We went crouching and darting about like ninjas amongst the shadows trying to avoid the guards. We climbed up one of the small pyramids supposedly made for Cheops’ Queens to see where the guards were posted. From there, we watched the guards walk back and forth taking note of their positions before climbing back down. We were prepared to make our ascent but unfortunately, the guards had other plans.

Our ninja skills must have been a wee bit rusty because the guards caught us. They harassed us at first with threats of jail and fines but they soon softened up and asked for a friendly bribe. In the end, they let us go once they realized we didn’t have any money to bribe them with and that arresting us would require them to actually work. The guards weren’t paid enough to do actual work so they escorted us out.

We waved goodbye to them, walked out of sight, then sneaked back in. This time we skirted wide around the Great Pyramid running along the open area between the Sphinx and the Pyramid of Khafre/Khephren. We were horribly exposed but somehow the gods that protect fools were with us and no one saw us.

The Japanese book had listed the southwest corner of the pyramid as the safest place to climb. Here the pyramid resembled a high-stepped staircase of steady, firm blocks. It makes for easy climbing but we made the mistake of scaling straight up the middle of the west side rather than the corner. We didn’t take the corner because we were afraid of being spotted again. Instead we nearly ended up as bloody spots at the bottom of the pyramid.

The west side was steep and crumbly. There was nowhere for us to stop and rest. It was tricky business climbing as our feet kept slipping out from underneath us and our hands kept losing their grip from time to time. Our only comfort was that we had promised each other if one of us should fall to our horrible gory demise, we would not scream out during our death plunge so as to give away the other.

We eventually achieved the summit in about half an hour. At the top of the pyramid was a small flat area the size of a Japanese apartment where several people could sit. It was also large enough for several thousand mosquitoes to gather and dine on weary climbers. I took my shoes and socks off and soon found my feet covered with mosquitoes.

From our vantage point, we could see the lights of Cairo twinkling in the near distance. The city is practically squats at the pyramid’s doorstop like an obstinate Jehovah Witness who refuses to take no for an answer. One day I fear Cairo may completely surround the pyramids and swallow them up whole.

We were not there long when three Japanese climbers suddenly popped up. They had taken the proper route so they were more relaxed both physically and mentally. They had been able to rest along the way and they didn’t have to get reacquainted with their religious faith as we did when we implored what powers that be not to let us fall.

We took each other’s pictures then waited for the sunrise together. Unfortunately my pictures were later stolen along with the camera they were in along with the bag the camera was in by some junky thief in London. But that’s another story.

The pollution of Cairo looked beautiful in the morning light; unfortunately it blocked out any sunrise. The sky just got lighter and lighter but the sun didn’t show till 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. and by then we were long gone.

Kheprhen’s Pyramid loomed massively near us while the Sphinx looked like no more than a week-old kitten with a genetic defect resembling an Egyptian Pharoah’s head. Behind us the desert stretched into the nothingness of sand. In front of us the Giza Plain stretched into the Pizza Hut that was directly across the street.

When we decided we had fed the mosquitoes enough, we descended. We got caught again but this is the normal procedure at this stage of the venture. Fortunately it wasn’t the same group as before. That might have damaged the friendly relations, which Greg and I had worked so hard to establish with the first group.

They took us to a guard station and made us sit there for an hour. Eventually the captain came out to question us. He asked me where I heard that I could climb the pyramid. I told him in a book. He asked which book. “Mark Twain’s Innocents Abroad,” I told him. I neglected to inform him the book was over 130 years out of date.

When he asked the Japanese their nationality, I was surprised when they said “Thai.” I later learned that every climber from the “Land of the Rising Sun” goes up the pyramid Japanese, but comes down Thai or some other Asian nationality whose country doesn’t have the economical means to sustain its citizenry in paying off large bribes. Typically, Japanese are favorite targets of Egyptian hustlers, guards, and touts in relieving large amounts of money from them.

Disappointed with the “Thai-ness” of his three Asian detainees, the captain left. After sitting around for another half hour, we finally just got up and left as well. The guards made minimal protests to our departure. They go through this little routine just about every morning so they were not too concerned. We were confidant they wouldn’t shoot us but, just in case, I bravely made sure Greg and the Japanese were blocking me from the guards’ line of fire as we walked away.
