Yes. And in the picture below you'll see stunning proof that the Sun is actually a giant hollow brass sphere with an electromagnet mounted inside...

There is much we know and yet do not know.

There is much we have known and yet do not know.



What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. - Bertrand Russell

What is utter bullshit? I'll take Platitudes for 400.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

What does this question even mean? What's a "flower of life?" How old is "ancient?" Does it matter whether it's "COMPLETE" or not?

Dave, are you stealing my technique: asking questions?

Thank you for that. It's clear to me now that the Arabic/Muslim architectural tradition of using beautiful geometrical designs in place of images of people owes those geometrical forms to the Egyptians. You see such decorative patterns on mosques and other buildings all over the Muslim world. Muslims, believing the depiction of humans is forbidden as "idolatry," have long used such patterns instead.

I hadn't known that these "Islamic" patterns themselves originated in ancient Egypt. Nice to know. That they are geometric and Egyptian makes sense. The ancient Egyptians developed the art of geometry because they needed to re-survey farm plots after each annual Nile flood.

But otherwise, one really should not let oneself go delusional over the "meaning" of pretty designs, even if the original artists had some kind of mystical bullshit in mind.

I believe,the COMPLETE ancient flower of life is an interdimensional tool,a portal,a link back to awareness of the universal consciousness(god,the collective unconscious or whatever you want to call it). The universal consciousness we were all part of before we entered this material world. The original fol(found in "the osireion" at abydos in egypt)is incomplete because it is only the first layer of three. The complete flower has the other two layers added,making it three dimensional. If you relax(sit three feet away from the screen)and let the flower slowly draw your eyes out of focus,the flower will open. Try and not focus on any one point,blankly stare,take the flower in as a whole. Do not strain your eyes,as it will happen naturally. We do not see with our eyes,we see THROUGH our eyes. Let your mind focus,dont fight it. You may get a headache and itchy eyes,this will quickly disappear. This is not a known science,but if you let it happen,you will be supprised by what appears. 4love and light 2allx The complete ancient flower of life is not a stereogram,a magic eye image or any other man made optical illusion. (use the hand drawn flower) I look forward to any feedback.

The complete fol contains the tree,the fruit,the egg and the seed of life. The complete flower also contains the three dimensional metatron cube which holds all the platonic solids. Not just the building blocks of life,but the building blocks of creation itself. http://www.sangraal.com/library/dedicated.htm

The incomplete fol is found all over the ancient world. The oldest and original incomplete fol is found on several pillars within "the osireion" at abydos in egypt. The osireion(the tomb of osiris)is known to be the oldest building in egypt. To this day,no egyptologists or archaeologist can or wont explain why,who or what the flower was put there for. I believe,the flower has been delibarately ignored,so world secret societies can keep the flowers secrets hidden. http://www.users.bigpond.com/MSN/gary_fletcher/osireion.html http://www.grahamhancock.com/library/fotg/c45-5.htm

andy, first you should try to clean up the formatting of your posts some. They are very hard to read when you go beyond two sentences. Maybe use a paragraph break or two.

Second:
The universal consciousness we were all part of before we entered this material world.


You'll need to provide some evidence.

We do not see with our eyes,we see THROUGH our eyes.


Another baseless asertion. Obviously we see with our eyes. Yes, our brain processes the raw data, which is why our vision is so easily fooled by optical illusions, and its also the reason we see patterns where none actually exist.

Try this illusion. One of the better examples of our flawed visual perception.

This one is fun also.
