Interesting things

Postby Nahemah » Thu Jul 09, 2015 10:27 pm

This is a thread for information that is esoterically interesting, yet may be difficult to pigeonhole.

I gather a lot of information on a broad spectrum and thought I'd share some of my meanderings...

http://www.archaeology.org/issues/180-1507/features/3347-horses-role-in-myth-and-religion

A biography of the Horse.

More later, maybe not about horses.

Yes I was surprised to not find any such thread, but then saw this topic and thought it fits in here as well.

Finnegan's Musical Wake

Postby Nahemah » Wed Feb 03, 2016 4:20 am

Seventeen different musicians from all around the world, each assigned to render a chapter aurally. The only requirements: the chapter’s words must be audible, unabridged, and more or less in their original order.

http://www.openculture.com/2016/02/finnegans-wake-read-by-17-artists.html

“What Joyce is doing… is to make his hero re-live the whole of history in a night’s sleep.” And what Burgess does is show us the complex scaffolding and symbolism of that dream. What he does not do is explain away the music of Joyce’s novel—for it is, after all, not only one long dream, but one long song, the “strangest ever sung.” We can hear Joyce himself sing from the novel’s Anna Livia Plurabelle section in the video at the top (accompanied by subtitles and a very cool animation, I must say). His lilting tenor enthralls, but his is not the only way to sing Finnegans Wake. Indeed, the novel, though very odd and very difficult, is Joyce’s invitation to the world..."

Five Personal Development Classics (Free)

The books listed below have all sold millions of copies and most people probably know their names. All are now in public domain due to the time elapsed since their initial publication.

Missing link found between brain, immune system; major disease implications

Date: June 1, 2015
Source: University of Virginia Health System

Summary:

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer's to multiple sclerosis.

A year old, but exciting nonetheless, given the stubborn clinging to mind/ body dichotomy that is still so prevalent in the West.

What seems to trap a woman between this life and the beyond is the anguish of being hurt by those closest to her.

Japanese folklore glitters with powerful female spirits and demons who terrorize the living. The common theme of their lives and deaths is transgression: philandering husbands, murdered children, or a family's shame.

These spirits often seek vengeance, typically from anything they encounter. While some have the ability to kill, others will simply watch the objects of their disaffection suffer and die. The curse of the vengeful ghost can become contagious like a disease, and can even infect an area after the ghost has left.

What seems to trap a woman between this life and the beyond is the anguish of being hurt by those closest to her.

It's the 75th anniversary of the Great Auroral Storm...

By Jeffrey J. Love and Pierdavide Coïsson 15 September 2016

Seventy-five years ago, on 18–19 September 1941, the Earth experienced a great magnetic storm, one of the most intense ever recorded. It arrived at a poignant moment in history, when radio and electrical technology was emerging as a central part of daily life and when much of the world was embroiled in World War II, which the United States had not yet officially entered.

The illuminated night sky exposed an Allied convoy to German attack. Auroras danced across the night sky as voltage surged in power grid lines. A radio blackout interrupted fan enjoyment of a baseball game, while another radio program was interrupted by private phone conversations. Citizens, already on edge, wondered if neon lights were some sort of antiaircraft signal. And far away in the North Atlantic, the illuminated night sky exposed an Allied convoy to German attack.

These effects raised awareness within the scientific community and among the public of the societal significance of the effects that the Sun and outer space can have on the Earth—what we now call space weather...
