The South African delegation to COP21 in Paris (Dec 2015) has a clear mandate to work towards a fair legally binding agreement to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and to make a reasonable contribution to that goal. Currently up to 90% of South Africa’s energy is supplied by coal-fired power stations, but the government has made clear its commitment to the implementation of renewable and sustainable energy strategies. According to Johan Cilliers, regional director First Solar, a global photovoltaic solar system provider, the renewable energy projects of the Department of Energy’s Independent Power Producer (IPP) procurement program are expected to supply the country with 3,725MW of power by 2016. By 2030, the Department of Energy plans that 14% of the country’s energy will come from coal, 22.6% from nuclear, 9.2% from open-cycle gas turbine, 5.6% from closed-cycle gas turbine, 6.1% from renewable energy carriers including hydro, 19.7% from wind, 2.4% from concentrated solar power and 19.7% from photovoltaic solar power.

One of the most remarkable archaeological finds of recent times was made in the fossil-rich area of the Gauteng Province, South Africa, known as the Cradle of Humankind. The find, first announced in November 2013, was made in a cave named Rising Star (Dinaledi in Sesotho, one of the local African languages) about 50 kms northwest of Johannesburg and about 16 kms from the Malapa cavewhere six skeletons of Australopithecus sediba were found in August 2008.

At any minute (starting 6th of March 2015) Jet Propulsion Lab scientists could be receiving a startling confirmation on vast water reserves on the dwarf planet Ceres as a result of the remote sensing technology onboard NASA’s Dawn Probe dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/. After some 3.1 billion miles, the spacecraft will answer questions on the nature of Ceres, particularly on the interior of a space object that may be 25% water. Dawn is already in orbit and making its spiral down to the surface of Ceres where it will take an investigative look at this icy world that some scientists believe could house primitive forms of extraterrestrial life under its surface. Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt, and its neighbor, Vesta, the second largest object in the area, may also provide vital clues on the nature of the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter that was formed out of debris encircling Jupiter from an earlier time of our Solar system. Some claim the asteroids are the result of a planet that was destroyed in the distant past. Now these two sisters have been classified like Pluto, as dwarf planets.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is currently orbiting the ring system of Saturn. It has been on an extended mission since 2008 and amazingly continues to send back advanced data on Saturn, its moons and extensive ring system. The ring system has proved most amazing as it contains myriads of ringlets, moonlets composed of dust and icy rocks. It operates as an accretion disk with primordial matter, ice and micro debris. What is most interesting is that the rings are not as stable as they have appeared. Originally, the rings were observed by the Voyager mission when it passed by Saturn (1980-1981), but a comparison with the Cassini images has revealed great differences in almost all the rings, especially the F-ring, over the period of less than thirty years. Thus, in a relatively short period of time the vast changes in the rings have shown spectacular morphologies.
In 1979, Alan Guth (now at MIT), proposed the concept of cosmic inflation. He believed that the initial energy of the universe would cause a runaway expansion. Until recently it has been theoretical although mathematically proven that the universe is inflating.
A collaborative team after three years has corroborated that a twist in light or ripples in space-time are the first images of gravitational waves from the Big Bang. This would suggest that cosmic inflation is correct. Researchers also significantly agree that this confirms a profound relationship between quantum mechanics and general relativity which has implications for study at the Planck scale, previously thought to be impossible.
NASA's pioneering Voyager 1 probe has encountered an uncharted new region at the outer reaches of the solar system, the spacecraft is at the precipice to go into interstellar space, space scientists say.

A recently discovered and claimed 4th century text (301-400 AD) translated by Karen L. King, touted by the media as the proof of Jesus’ marriage on the basis of a fragment of Coptic document, has reopened a very old question, “Was Jesus married?” Regardless of what some contemporary scholars write in the Harvard Theological Review or popular news, let us examine the larger Coptic (Christian Egyptian) literary tradition from which this document originates. The teaching of Christ being “wedded” or having a “wife”, must be seen within the “context of meaning” where Coptic Gnostic thinkers use the terms of “Christ,” “woman,” “marriage,” and purpose of the Jesus’ mission or “birth” to demonstrate a divine-human union of two different natures. Here, we believe that one has to interpret marriage raised to a higher level of not a woman, such as Mary Magdalene, but all of the congregation on earth or in the heavens needs to be considered as the “wife” or “bride”!
Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) gets ready to search for life on the Martian surface
The success of Jet Propulsion Lab's "Curiosity" landing on the surface of Mars, August 5-6th, 2012, a $2.5 billion USD project by NASA, brings a new and exciting chapter that could inaugurate the finding of life on Mars, past and present. The entry into the Martian atmosphere and the descent time of seven anxious minutes was viewed on millions on television screens around the world, with live NASA feed from JPL in Pasadena, California. There have been no serious attempts to answer questions as to the possibility of microbial life on Mars since the analysis of topsoil by the Viking 1 and 2 missions in 1976. That data was inconclusive, but now these questions can again be raised, redefined by the Curiosity experiments. If evidence is found, then perhaps a "sample return mission" or even a manned mission to Mars will be next in line. A manned mission is not out of the question in the next 25-50 years. The Mars Society (marssociety.org) believes it feasible since "water" appears evident on Mars. If subsurface water can be tapped, it could generate oxygen for the first astronauts on Mars, as well as allow plants brought from Earth to be grown.
On July 4th, 2012, scientists from CERN and working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the Franco-Swiss border have claimed the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson. Two teams worked separately and made the discovery at the LHC: one named Atlas, led by Fabiola Gianotti, and the other CMS, led by Incandela. The CMS team claimed they had seen a "bump" in their data corresponding to a particle weighing in at 125.3 gigaelectronvolts (GeV) - about 133 times heavier than the protons that lie at the heart of every atom.
The idea that there are multiple universes other than our own known physical universe has been popularized and culturally rooted for years throughout the media of science-fiction, fantasy, and film, but now scientists are starting to agree. This scientific acceptance that we are part of a “multiverse” began with inflationary cosmology models which have evolved in theoretical physics out of those first proposed in 1980 by Alan Guth to explain the relatively homogeneous, flat structure of our local universe generated by our presumed Standard Model (Big Bang) origin. In this line of thinking, the early physical universe burst from its pinpoint-origin and rapidly, exponentially expanded outward at unimaginably high temperatures, then cooled, but subsequently re-heated enough to ignite the stars, and to then inflate—forever, thus the naming of this school of thought "Eternal Inflation".
A major controversy amongst many scientists since the 1960s has finally been settled: there now appears to be conclusive evidence that not only does outer space house certain amino acids the basic building blocks of life, but meteorites falling to Earth from space have been shown to contain “nucleobases” the building blocks of DNA and RNA. A team from NASA Goddard's Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory which includes Michael Callahan, Drs. Jennifer C. Stern, Daniel P. Glavin, and Jason P. Dworkin were amongst those who researched and confirmed the findings. The Pennsylvania State University, the Carnegie Institution of Washington, DC also were involved in the investigation.
Historic events have unfolded in Fukushima, Japan. Many experts believe the scale of this tragedy to be the greatest nuclear tragedy in history. Leadership in Tokyo and the world need to recognize that this nuclear crisis is not a passing event in one distant part of the world. Unless the leaders from all sides of humanity go to work, the consequences of four "melt downs" will have deep consequences not only for the population of the Prefectures around Fukushima, but the surrounding countries of Korea, China and Taiwan and the world.
It is also important to acknowledge the presence of a score of unusual light objects coming from unknown sources that appeared over the Fukushima plants shortly after the March 11th disaster. These aerial patterns coming from these objects in the sky are mystifying as you can see here in the short film clip (March 26, 2011) and represent something more than the "Olympic of the Mind" or double-vision ignored by the official media.
Although many are critical of unknown lights, their timing was important for after the March 11-16 initial crisis, March 21-26th was a second real turning point for the dangerous nuclear by-products especially from Reactor 3 containing MOX, the most dangerous of all the fuels. In fact, the world may find a way and means to use new energy sources as we observe advanced cosmic cultures who are watching the energy dilemma we earthlings are facing at this critical time.

The world's fourth-largest magnitude quake of 9.0 was caused when the Pacific tectonic plate slipped under the North American plate, causing a massive movement of the Japanese landmass to shift Eastward. Specifically, Japan has just moved towards the North American continent by about 13 feet. More
We know that we not alone in the universe, but we are all waiting for the hard evidence that will prove it to everyone else. The first major “disclosure” may be this week’s announcement by a NASA scientist that evidence of primitive ‘alien life forms’ have been found in a recently dissected meteorite. More
There may be three times as many stars in the known universe as the number previously calculated, according to new research done at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Astronomers have until now used as a yardstick the number of brown dwarfs in our own Milky Way Galaxy to calculate the number of stars in all the other galaxies, but that yardstick may not be reliable.

In May of 2010, Drs J.J. and Desiree Hurtak had the opportunity with members of The Academy For Future Science, in Italy to visit the Cattedrale di San Giovanni Battista, Turino (The Cathedral of John the Baptist, in Turin). The Sacred Relic of the Shroud of Turin, believed by many to be the cloth that covered the body of Jesus while in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, was on display. This viewing only takes place at irregular intervals decided by the Catholic Church and only 8 times in the past 100 years. More
A new machine called “Hogan’s Holometer” presently being built at Fermilab will measure more precisely than any hitherto constructed the odd noise signals detected in previous searches for the gravitational waves (and their concomitant space-time ripples) that are theoretically emitted in the violent collisions between black holes and supernovas.The interesting thing about the noise emissions which precipitated the building of the Holometer is that according to Dr. Hogan, physicist directing its construction, the anomalous signals may indicate “microscopic convulsions of space-time”—i.e., at the quantum or micro-level.

It was previously thought that the hunter gathers of Mesolithic Britain were nomadic, never putting down roots or leaving traces of occupation. This idea is being challenged with the unearthing of what looks to be the most significant discovery of its time - the excavation of a wooden dwelling dating back more than 10,500yrs. At the time, the end of the last ice age, Britain was still connected to continental Europe by a string of hills across the English Channel known as the Weald-Artois rock ridge. (more)
Stonehenge’s 'Twin' Found:
Archeologists discover ancient wooden circle at famous site Magnetometric imaging has shown an, as-yet unexcavated,
wooden circle, or "henge" less than 1000 yards away from
Stonehenge. It has the same orientation as the more famous site: north-east to south-west. This finding only further augments last year's discovery of “Bluehenge”, which is located on the Avon River one mile from Stonehenge. In 2006, there was a further announcement of discoveries in a neighboring area of Durrington where the foundations of houses were found for these ancient peoples. (more)
June 3, 2010 was a monumental beginning of an important program when six future cosmonauts from Italy, France, China and Russia in front of a plethora of cameras and newsmen in Moscow walked into a confined space for the next 500 days, maybe even 520 days, until November 2011. The appearance of six happy space travelers marks the beginning of an experiment of living in very close quarters and spending many days together in a series of interconnected metal canisters that comprise the model of a one-way space probe to Mars. The complete round trip simulation will cover the amount of days it will take to travel to Mars and back. The real mission to Mars is already tentatively planned for 2030 ... (more).
What a difference a year can make in the life of the Sun. In June of 2009, solar scientists were saying that the sunspot activity had been some of the quietest in 100 years with 264 spotless days in 2009 and 268 spotless days in 2008. However, by June 2010, sunspot AR 1081 (June 12th M-Class) was already being registered with C-class and M-class solar flares now being observed. Solar flares are categorized as A, B, C, M, or X, each category becoming more powerful, with a numerical intensity from 1 through 9 also added. Scientists met on June 8th 2010 at the National Press Club in Washington DC for the The Space Weather Enterprise Forum (http://www.nswp.gov/swef/swef_program.html), designed to discuss the fact that the sun, now understood as "variable star," is certainly waking up. Their conclusion was that between now and 2013 we may be in for very severe solar storms that can knock out power to major cities especially in the northern latitudes of the earth. The solar maximum for this Solar Cycle 24 is currently expected to occur in May 2013 but the date may change. http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SolarCycle/. ... (more).

THE CONSCIOUSNESS FIELD AND THE END OF SUFFERING
The material universe is composed of much more than random objects. In fact, the foundation of life cannot be limited to matter alone but energy also becomes a force behind a vast interconnected universe. Here consciousness is considered non-physical in the sense of classical physics since it is working as the observer at the quantum level. In fact, consciousness is entangled in living systems, but is not limited to a singular "mind-body" field. This further implies that consciousness does not exclusively reside within the brain, but is entangled with it. Thus, we assert that life is a function of the flow which at the highest level is called Love, that is represented as a higher resonance that activates greater degrees of admittance for the bio-lattice. Positive, sustaining powers of "active love" is what is behind the harmonious interactions and energy balances which are the basis of the true sustaining physics of the universe. MORE ON THIS SUBJECT
