Evolution Of Technology

Posted on June 17, 2011 at 4:33am 1 Comment

The origin of this post is in a question that I posed to our brilliant host of the World Wide Wisdom Radio talkshow - Peter O'Lalor. In the context of apprehensions about the emerging technologies, Nano and Bio, my question was "Can Humans Control the Evolution of Technology?"

 

Let us look at the four discoveries in the Human history that had the greatest of impacts. Someone, without planning perhaps discovered Fire. Surely the elders and the wise of the society of that time,…

Humanity Vs. Divinity - WWW Radio

Posted on May 23, 2011 at 6:58pm 1 Comment

Listening to WWW Radio is an amazing experience. Peter, in his affable voice explaining the Ancient Wisdom is not only mesmerizig but also addictive as in the end it leaves one desiring for more. Heidi is a perfectly neutral host allowing everyone to put their views across and never imposes her own thoughts. It is this background, which encourages people like me to ask questions.

 

In the show last week, Peter explained that Spirituality is a study related to Divinity. Post…

Hi "Captain" I remember you from another forum (or is this it?) from several or more years ago!  I was looking for the forum attached to the US-thesosphy!  Life took over so I got away from forums ....plus I felt there was far too much intellectualising which can make one as unbalanced as eating far too much food and becoming obese and ill.

 

Anyway, how have you been these past years, keeping well?

Regards

KJG

I am highly empathic and have been feeling the energetic shifts. The recent EQ and volcanic activity tie in with Edgar Cayce's predictions as well as several others.

I have noticed that you are keeping current with earth changes. I am in the Pacific NW with a view of Mt. Rainier out my back window. I am feeling it is time to relocate.

My thought at present are with those in the Phillipines and the disaster cycle they are in.
