Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

The moment we want to believe something, we suddenly see all the arguments for it, and become blind to the arguments against it. It is not disbelief that is dangerous to our society; it is belief.

Subhumans- Internal riot

Did humans speak through cave art?

When and where did humans develop language? To find out, look deep inside caves, suggests an MIT professor. More precisely, some specific features of cave art may provide clues about how our symbolic, multifaceted language capabilities evolved, according to a new paper co-authored by MIT linguist Shigeru Miyagawa.

key to this idea is that cave art is often located in acoustic “hot spots,” where sound echoes strongly, as some scholars have observed. Those drawings are located in deeper, harder-to-access parts of caves, indicating that acoustics was a principal reason for the placement of drawings within caves. The drawings, in turn, may represent the sounds that early humans generated in those spots.

Tonight he will visit...will I find the strength to resist ?

At war with myself, and took it to the street
Another grey afternoon of the soul
Infinite repetition with no end in sight
Karmic Debts from another life I am starting to remember
A little here, a little there, Mitrochondrial memory
Up the twisting ladder
I recognized you instantly
Although we’ve never met, something in your eyes
From so many thousands years ago
I was never young, and neither were you
[Man:] Who the hell are you?
[Strange voice:] You know who I am
[Man:] Are you who I think you are?
[Strange voice:] Yes
I am here!
You know me!
Here I am!
I was half asleep or was I half awake?
Pressure from my chest, impossible to breathe
I forced my eyes to look
And you are all I see
Speaking in thoughts, boring into me (I’ve lost it)
[Strange voice:] You wanted to make a deal, so here I am, well…
[Man:] I didn’t mean it, this is not what I asked for
[Strange voice:] Well, you said it, and now I am here! Be careful what you wish for
I am here!
You know me!
Here I am!
I know you!
[Strange voice:] Be careful what you wish for
Infinite repetition…

Reconstructing an Ancient Lethal Weapon

Archaeologists are a little like forensic investigators: They scour the remains of past societies, looking for clues in pottery, tools and bones about how people lived, and how they died.

And just as detectives might re-create the scene of a crime, University of Washington archaeologists have re-created the weapons used by hunter-gatherers in the post-Ice Age Arctic some 14,000 years ago. Looking for clues as to how those early people advanced their own technology, researchers also considered what that might tell us about human migration, ancient climates and the fate of some animal species.

I am over due for a respite.....

“Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break....I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun.”
― Edward Abbey
