supernatural beauty of the mountains

I took these pictures as the sun was going down in Tepozteco national park in southern Mexico, not too far from Mexico City.  Such a beautiful place to walk.

divine poetry in molecular motion


 

from Tony Wright http://beyond-belief.org.uk/node/25
 “watch this excerpt from a recent animation that provides just a hint of the unimaginable dynamic complexity that you are Do not buy into your perceptually limited mind telling you ‘this is just what happens in my cells’. Although near the cutting edge of biological animation and still a relatively crude representation of the molecular biology that you are in action, right now, it does begin to reveal what extraordinarily complex beings we are, divine poetry in molecular motion.”

symbiosis and species



"...in their 2002 book Acquiring Genomes: A Theory of the Origins of Species, Margulis and Dorion Sagan maintain that combining random mutations with natural selection at best explains changes of form only within existing species (more black moths and fewer white). Though the new synthesis continues to generate sophisticated science, Margulis insists that it does not properly account for the appearance of new species. She contends that we must look to symbiosis to understand this critical aspect of evolution."

ancient visionary plants



“modern technological society which has been fighting the so-called war on drugs for forty years…is a really recent comer…we are out of step with the human story,..we are medicating our populations massively with deeply dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and at the same time ..denying our population access to the healing powers of ancient visionary plants that have been trial tested in human society  for thousands and thousands of years…and obviously this is a huge mistake and it manifests in the unconsciousness and insanity of modern technological society” Graham Hancock
