I don’t fully understand why snow is so magical. Maybe it’s how clean and pure it makes the world seem, covering all the ugly parts, or maybe how it brings out the childlike sense of wonder, or the stillness it causes, it maybe still how it falls like fairies dancing in the sky.
You can’t help but be filled with excitement. And although I don’t care to be trapped at home for too many days in a row with these monkeys of mine...I hope it isn’t too long before winter graces us with her magic again. .
I've been contemplating some very profound experiences that I've had in the past. It would have been helpful if I had recieved some guidance at the time, to explain at the very least what was happening. Fortunately with time my questions have been answered, and verified in unexpected ways. At the time I wondered why some idividuals would seemingly withhold information, but maybe in some cases it wasn't deliberate, perhaps they just didn't know the answers to my questions, and were afraid to admit ignorance. Upon deeper reflection, it made me ask myself, "Am I unconsciously witholding truth that would be of benefit to someone if revealed?" I think ultimately that's the more important question... Happy Wednesday. May the wisdom of Tehuti guide you on your path.

The 12 gods of Olympus.
Ancient Greeks worshipped a group of deities who appeared and gained followers during the so called Hellenic Dark Ages (XI-IX century b.C.).
The cult originated from the blend of different believes: waves of Indoeuropean tribes (Eolians, Ionians, Achaeans, descendants of Hellons, as the myth would say) introduced the veneration of male heavenly gods, while the primeval mediterranean peoples worshipped great Mother Goddess figures. Remarkable influences also came from the very next Middle East and its religions.
Twelve were the gods who were considered to rule over the world from the height of Mount Olympus.
Zeus, king of the gods and master of the thunderbolt; Hera, his sister and wife, who presided at births and marriage; Poseidon, god of the sea; Demeter, the Mother Earth, revered in particular mysteric cults; the multipurpose Apollo, god of light, poetry, medicine, cattle and oracles; his twin sister Artemis, huntress ans mistress of the animals, also linked to the moon; Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and desire; her husband Hephaestus, the crippled, yet crafty blacksmith; Ares, the bellicose god of war; Athena, goddess of wisdom, warfare and domestic crafts; Hermes, herald of the gods and guide of the souls in the Underworld; lastly the peaceful Hestia, embodiment of the home hearth, later replaced by the joyful Dionysos, inventor of wine, god of ecstasy.
That is the most popular list, but it was rather common to find different composition of the greatest pantheon depending on local myths and traditions. Thus Titan gods as Helios and Prometheus were offered sacrifices in Rhodes and in Athens, Hades, Persephone and Hecate played major roles in the Eleusinian Mysteria, and even heroes like Theseus and Achilles were worshipped somewhere.
Greek religion was far more articolated and differentiated than one could think, and always reserved a special adoration to nature personifications like Satyrs and Nymphs. However, it can be adfirmed that the Dodekatheion, the group of the Olympians, represented the cohesion and cultural identity all over the country.
Somethings wrong here! I’m staying at a fantastic new hotel in Ubud. They have their own hydroponics system and grow most of the vegetables (organically) on site. Yet here I am, standing in the hotel grounds with a luminous green piece of bread in my hand (generously donated by my team as they left our meeting) and the fogging machine starts up! WTF? What does organic even mean out here? And why is my bread glowing? #cultural#mysteries#adventure#fogging#bali#ubud#madness#mystified#humour#randomsnacks @mayatamblyn @jamie_jessica_woodall
The Baghdad Battery is believed to be about 2000 years old (from the Parthian period, roughly 250 BCE to CE 250). The jar was found in Khujut Rabu just outside Baghdad and is composed of a clay jar with a stopper made of asphalt. Sticking through the asphalt is an iron rod surrounded by a copper cylinder.
This was tested and it actually works! The ancient civilizations in human history were not as primitive as some of us think. If we stop to marvel at the incredible feats of engineering from the Pyramids of Giza, the aquaducts of ancient Rome and the construction of Stonehenge as some examples, some of our best modern engineers with today's technology can't figure out how those ancient civilizations were able to do what they did.
