The Dream Dancer's Mask

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

THE DREAM DANCER’S MASK: To what extentrepparttar eleven or thirteen dimensions proposed by Quantum Physics contain elements ofrepparttar 135795 future that would allow divination by those who dorepparttar 135796 ecstatic or drug aided dances likerepparttar 135797 Whirling Dervish is anyone’s guess. I think there are many ‘potential’ futures and few who can interpretrepparttar 135798 constructs and confusion therein.

ARTIFACT DESCRIPTION: a) Weight – two and one half pounds b) Composition – electrum – 80% gold We need to have a thorough analysis ofrepparttar 135799 composition that hopefully will provide clues as to when it was made. c) Symbology – There are marks behind or nearrepparttar 135800 eye hole(s) thatrepparttar 135801 face fits snuggly into. There are horns atrepparttar 135802 top and a handle atrepparttar 135803 bottom. The amorphous shapes onrepparttar 135804 face ofrepparttar 135805 mask are intentionally made to be seen as different animistic demons or forms which is in line with Bes andrepparttar 135806 earlier origins of Besrepparttar 135807 Egyptian representative deity. Bes and Loki are both tricksters andrepparttar 135808 horns might speak to Cernunnos or other horned gods that are ofrepparttar 135809 same continuum due torepparttar 135810 travels ofrepparttar 135811 Kelts or Olmecs and their Brotherhood. Shamans seek to project visions torepparttar 135812 ritual participants in their dances or performances. Often there were mind-altering drugs or ecstatic dances involved. The mutable nature ofrepparttar 135813 face of this mask suggests any viewer might witness their own personal spirit guide orrepparttar 135814 demon and elemental of their belief system pantheon. d) Collateral artifacts – The large lipped Negroid features on some lithics that resemblerepparttar 135815 Guatemalan and La Venta artifacts are instructive and might indicaterepparttar 135816 mask comes fromrepparttar 135817 same people who were in that part ofrepparttar 135818 world. The Cherokee calendar and Mayan system are similarly instructive. The lions and giraffes or other non-indigenous American fauna would indicate these travelers were in North Africa. This could berepparttar 135819 Figuig who came in 500 AD or any number of other migrations long beforerepparttar 135820 likes of Juba and his Ptolemy family arrived once Rome was building an Empire they cared not to participate in. We feel it is likely that our artifacts are far earlier than Empire and we are eager to seerepparttar 135821 professional work done to establish dates that should be in line withrepparttar 135822 early dating of Poverty Point in 4000 BCE if not earlier. However we must rule outrepparttar 135823 Melungeons or pre-Columbians like those who might have leftrepparttar 135824 Bat Creek artifacts. The Tennessee skeletons of pygmies might be connected if we find harmonics isrepparttar 135825 technology used in makingrepparttar 135826 symbols that are almost microscopic.

The Iowa artifacts and caves of a fellow researcher have been dated to over 11,000 years ago. My book details a move south after smelting was being done in most Old World areas around 4000 BC. The rebounding ofrepparttar 135827 land that still goes on as post-glacial re-adjustment causedrepparttar 135828 waters ofrepparttar 135829 Great Lakes to flow in many new directions inrepparttar 135830 fourth millennium BC. One artifact in Iowa is a kaleidoscopic book of minute symbols that change as light hits it from different angles. We believerepparttar 135831 same is true with many of our artifacts but more analysis is needed. There is a passage in Exodus that might relate. It is associated with what is calledrepparttar 135832 Ten Commandments. It could relate to poured stone as Davidovits and linguists have shown Pliny describe. Even that would require man makingrepparttar 135833 molds and molds are hard to make in curves such as one would expect a graven image of god to include. Here isrepparttar 135834 passage: Ex. 20:25 ‘And if thou wilt make Me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone; for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.’

Probability - Fact or Fiction

Probability – Fact or Fiction

So what isrepparttar chance that a coin will land heads when flipped? Scientists say there is a 50% chance. Is this necessarily so though?

From reading my other articles it should be clear that one theory of our universe that I’m particularly interested in is consensus reality. A universe created by our collective consciousness that fits withinrepparttar 135772 confines of our collective belief systems.

I often feel that science is not so much determining existing laws ofrepparttar 135773 universe as is commonly thought, but in some respects creatingrepparttar 135774 laws itself through self-reinforcement inrepparttar 135775 conscious minds that continually maintainrepparttar 135776 structure and behaviour of this planet.

When you toss a coin, your subconscious beliefs dictate that, if you toss it enough, it will come up tails eventually. The concept of probability, chance and chaos are so well rooted in everyone’s minds that it is impossible to convince yourself that you haverepparttar 135777 power to make that coin show heads each and every time.

If you dorepparttar 135778 experiment yourself, say tossing a coin 1000 times trying to willrepparttar 135779 coin to be heads, and loggingrepparttar 135780 results as you go, you may notice afterrepparttar 135781 first 50 tosses that there has been a rather large bias towardsrepparttar 135782 coin coming up heads, for e.g

Heads Tails 31 19

Odd? Not really, mathematicians and statisticians will tell you that if you continue tossingrepparttar 135783 coin, and more data is amassed, thatrepparttar 135784 tosses will average out more.

That is entirely possible, and if we are to believe thatrepparttar 135785 physical world followsrepparttar 135786 laws of probability as rigidly as they say, probable.

But... this experiment has been insurmountably tainted byrepparttar 135787 preconceptions ofrepparttar 135788 person carrying outrepparttar 135789 experiment. If that person, with 100% complete faith that that coin WOULD land heads every single time, actually hadrepparttar 135790 power to make that happen, there is no way they would EVER find that power out, because 100% faith is impossible withrepparttar 135791 conditioning of randomness and probability concepts sincerepparttar 135792 day they were born. The most faith you can realistically ever have that it will land heads is... well, 50% really.

If you managed to convince yourself 100% that you hadrepparttar 135793 power to influencerepparttar 135794 coin toss, and then tossedrepparttar 135795 coin and it came up heads, what arerepparttar 135796 “chances” that it will come up heads onrepparttar 135797 second toss? 50% still. It’s counter intuitive, as you would assume that there is less chance of it coming up heads again if it already has done, but probability states thatrepparttar 135798 second time (or any other time) you toss that coin, it still has 50% chance of being heads.

Despite this, when tossingrepparttar 135799 coin a second time, you would be aware that you had just got a heads, and this niggling doubt would mean that you were no longer 100% convinced that you could makerepparttar 135800 coin come up heads again. You toss it again... Heads! Unbelievable...

That’s two heads in a row, maybe there’s something to this?

Time to toss again. You are still willing it to be heads, but you can feel your conviction and faith waning this time...
