 1905 paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies"

The theory (in this case the special theory of relativity) states that the two elements we find separate (time and space) are really a single thing (time-space) and can not be separated from each other - time does not flow from past to future (that's an illusion we think we see) but merely exist at a point (points) in the space-time continuum.

Could you provide a reference for your quote

Sum Puella Regis Semina Orta Deo Gratia


What does that mean? I would guess: 'Sono una ragazza reale che semina l'orto grazie a Dio', but that can't be right!

If that is true you could you up to your roof and jump off and fly.  Try it.  Of all the laws that create swift and sure punishment, the laws of physics are supreme.

Flying is easy.  All you have to do is throw yourself at the ground, and miss.

Existence does not depend upon perception, perception depends on existence.

Largely in Buddhism the idea is that valuation is all in the mind (IMO)... that is the major idea to grasp, the idea that one need not associate with an aspect of "reality" in a particular manner...i.e. we need not think negatively of absence of makeup... if we do not so desire, and doing so causes problems...

There is much talk of removing all desire... and while that is plausible it is more relevant to consider the alteration of desire such as not to have conflicting desires. and to choose the desires that are deemed most beneficial to the person. One need only to remove all desires when one is tired of life.

"There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance." -Socrates
"Nature herself has imprinted on the minds of all the idea of God." -Cicero
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without necessarily believing it." -Aristotle

ending sexism/racism by non conformity to popular history?
a daring but possibly effective technique
theres much more to history that the stories we see manifested again
and again in the present claiming to be the past
think about it, why is there so much sponsoring focusing only on these stories?

combining history and metaphysics to find out what really happened
outside of the realm of kings and that whole lame.. thing

basically, psychedelia

the psychedelic world is heaven, may its rays shine through it us,
though we are surrounded by the anchors of this regressive system that
makes absolutely no sense, it can transmute all of that, may it come
through clear and unaltered uninfluenced, like the full moon
not overlaying what we have been seeing but shattering through it
breaking through the chains

the black and white world is the realm of bodhisattvas who must learn
compassion for themselves, through others, there are no mistakes in
the cosmos, worry not

the truth is throughout history there was always an equal force of unity and wisdom bringing it all together, the mistakes are heralded by so many victories and perfections slipped into obscurity, perhaps trying to escape karmic burdens still maybe in the namelessness and formlessness they are more alive and vital?
spontaneously manifesting in any given place in time, to keep the sacred balance
peace and love

Yes I have often thought of how much of history regards those things which were standing out at the time... and not such things that might be more relevent to some such as being an average Joe rather then a king...
