150-Million Year Old Baby Bird Fossil/ Hide Scraper!

I was using my metal detector inrepparttar foothills of Tucson, Arizona. As luck would have it, I never find what I am Seeking. Asrepparttar 122152 day started to come to an end. I was walking back to my truck withrepparttar 122153 metal detector resting on my shoulder. I caught sight of an unusual looking rock laying onrepparttar 122154 ground. After picking uprepparttar 122155 rock I dustedrepparttar 122156 rock on my pant leg and noticed a fossilized baby bird just off center ofrepparttar 122157 stone. I turnedrepparttar 122158 stone over to reveal more ofrepparttar 122159 bird’s body onrepparttar 122160 back ofrepparttar 122161 stone. After showingrepparttar 122162 bird off to some of my friends, I decided to takerepparttar 122163 stone torepparttar 122164 University of Arizona. I wanted to learn more about what I had found. My first stop atrepparttar 122165 U of A was atrepparttar 122166 American History Museum. I was told to take my stone torepparttar 122167 Paleontology Department acrossrepparttar 122168 lawn in front of where I was. When I got there I saw a professor in his office. I asked him if I could talk to a Paleontologist. He asked why, so I handed himrepparttar 122169 stone and preceded to tell him how I had foundrepparttar 122170 stone. His eyes got big with excitement as he examinedrepparttar 122171 stone while we walking downrepparttar 122172 hallway to another office. Soon theirs were several professor and people looking atrepparttar 122173 stone in awe over my good fortune. As they talked, I listened. The rock I found was secondary sedimentary solidified black limestone. Which is not indigenous to this area. I was toldrepparttar 122174 rock could have come from Canada, Montana, Kansas, China, or even from South America. The baby bird fossil was 150 million years old. This period in time is when birds evolved from reptiles. Another professor pointed out to me other inclusions that were inrepparttar 122175 stone like plant matter, twigs, and other foreign objects not identifiable to him. A professor stated that there was proof that this rock was found onrepparttar 122176 top ofrepparttar 122177 groundrepparttar 122178 impact marks etched intorepparttar 122179 rock asrepparttar 122180 rain hitrepparttar 122181 front ofrepparttar 122182 stone for thousands of years while it lay on top ofrepparttar 122183 ground. The marks were small circular pockets aboutrepparttar 122184 size of a pencil eraser grouped together. It was also mentioned that there was once other bones nearrepparttar 122185 chest ofrepparttar 122186 bird that had fallen out over time butrepparttar 122187 imprint ofrepparttar 122188 bones are still visible. They could not identifyrepparttar 122189 species of bird, as there is nothing on record, to compare it to. I was asked by one ofrepparttar 122190 professors if I wouldn’t mind waiting for one more professor who was still in class to come seerepparttar 122191 stone. He stated that this professor was part of their group and they wanted his opinion ofrepparttar 122192 stone. As he approached, I handed him,repparttar 122193 stone. He looked at it for a moment and stated that this stone was an artifact that had been carved by primitive man into a tool used to scraperepparttar 122194 flesh away fromrepparttar 122195 hide of game killed for food. It turned out that this mans background is inrepparttar 122196 field of Archeology. A silence fell onrepparttar 122197 people gathered we listened to information being given about this rare find.

Analyzing Dreams - a beginners guide

Written by Kevin Sheldrake

There are many theories as to what 'dreams' are. Doorways torepparttar subconscious, glimpses intorepparttar 122151 spirit realm, or visions ofrepparttar 122152 future - at one point or another we all probably subscribe to one or more of these theories. Personally, I believe that dreams arerepparttar 122153 ways in which our subconscious minds attempt to showrepparttar 122154 conscious thatrepparttar 122155 cold hard view ofrepparttar 122156 world we see while awake is notrepparttar 122157 only dimension of existence. The most marvellous kind of dreams are 'lucid' dreams. These occur when you realize you are dreaming, but stay inrepparttar 122158 dream. At that point you can usually start to controlrepparttar 122159 dream. This has led some researchers to think that dreams are simply random 'processes' inrepparttar 122160 mighty supercomputer that isrepparttar 122161 human brain, firing off asrepparttar 122162 system slips into 'power saver' mode!

Whatever your beliefs, you will no doubt at some time or other wonder what one of your dreams 'means'. The first thing to remember is thatrepparttar 122163 subconscious mind deals in images, not words. So try to focus onrepparttar 122164 imagery ofrepparttar 122165 dream, notrepparttar 122166 language. Nevertheless, you need to record your dreams on paper or dictaphone so you can study them later. The main problem here is that when you wake up it may take you several minutes to remember that you should be writing down your dreams, by which time, of course, they will have evaporated into thin air, so keep your pen and paper nearrepparttar 122167 bed. You may wake up inrepparttar 122168 middle ofrepparttar 122169 night, and if you don't immediately write downrepparttar 122170 dream, it will most likely vanish forever. This is what poeple who say 'I don't dream' really mean - they simply can't remember their dreams!

Once you have some raw material to work with, how do you interpret it? Interpretations of dreams are highly personal, although there are a few culture-specific symbols we all seem to share (such as 'snake' meaning sex, for example). Other symbolism may be obscure to your, but you need to remember that your subconscious is trying to show you something, and even if it is couched as a riddle, it makes sense on some level.
