When Science, Spirituality and Magic Meet - Re-Discovering Old Ancient Knowledge
There has been a great deal of hype over the coming new age. Written in sacred texts, carved in stone all over the world and in the alignment of stars above heralding the dawn of Aquarius, we are reminded to 'awaken' and 'remember'. Science and spirituality is coming together as the new energies rise our consciousness to a higher level. But is this new? Or are we seeing our world with new eyes? In all ancient teachings it has been written the time will come when the veils will be lifted one by one and a new world will be born. It may have been written in different ways, but none the less, the meaning is the same. Changes are coming, and love will lead the way.

Why Cats Purr
Dr. David Williams, the American medical researcher, biochemist and chiropractor, recently wrote about some fascinating research from the Fauna Communications Research Institute in Hillsborough, North Carolina, a group devoted to animal acoustical sounds, who decided to investigate the very fundamental question of exactly why cats purr.  

Survival mechanism
Although most of us believe cats purr to give voice to joy or contentment, cats also purr when they are under stress – when they are caged, or injured, or even during the rigors of birth.

Secrets Behind Our Reptilian Heart Revealed - A Century-Old Mystery Finally Solved
There are certain physiological similarities between humans and reptilians. We have what is known as the "reptilian brain". It controls vital functions such as heart rate, breathing, body temperature and balance. Our reptilian brain also includes the main structures found in a reptile's brain, namely the brainstem and the cerebellum. The reptilian brain is reliable but tends to be somewhat rigid and compulsive. Our eyes are also constructed like the eyes of reptiles. In both humans and reptiles, the eye acts as a box with a lens to focus the light that passes through it. Cells within the eye process the light and turn it into useful information.

$40m 570-megapixel Dark Energy Camera to unlock secrets of the universe
THE world's most powerful imaging device has taken its first pictures of the dark matter believed to make up 75 per cent of the universe Equipped with 74 CCD sensors, the powerful camera is about the size of a Telstra phone booth. It took scientists on three continents eight years to build and is now mounted on Chile's Blanco telescope in the Atacama Desert. Funded by a consortium of 23 scientific institutions around the world, the camera has captured starlight from eight billion years ago. These ancient rays may answer one of the most puzzling questions in physics, why the expansion of the universe is accelerating.

Mysteriously Boiling Water In Russian River Reported
The problem with rivers around the world continues. A while back the Yangtze River in China turned red, and now there are reports of a river in Russia that has suddenly started to boil. Hundreds of shocked residents that live in Yekaterinburg, Russia describe how a small river named Olkhovka that passes through the city unexpectedly turned into a stream of extremely hot water. No one knew what caused the phenomenon, but the fact is that the river ecosystem was severely affected, causing the death of thousands of fish lying on the banks. "The water is really hot. The shore of the river is littered with dead fish," a Professor from a local university said.

Messiah married? 'The Gospel of Jesus' Wife' suggests Christ tied the knot
A newly-discovered ancient text labeled "The Gospel of Jesus' Wife” could prove Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married. The Fourth-century papyrus challenges one of the cornerstones of Christian religion: that Jesus was celibate. The discovery was made by Harvard Divinity School Professor Karen L. King, who specializes in Coptic literature, Gnosticism and women in the Bible. King made a presentation of her research on Tuesday evening in Rome.The papyrus’s authenticity and date have yet to be confirmed; however King and other scholars are pretty sure they are dealing with a real historic gem. The Vatican has not yet commented on King’s finding and suggestions.

Understanding Protein and Protein Sources
The most powerful tool to restore and maintain your health and vitality is education.  It is one of the most important tools each of us has in order to understand how food effect’s not only our body, but every aspect of our personal lives. Protein plays a key role in helping our bodies achieve optimal health and vitality. What is Protein?  Protein is classified as one of three macronutrients (along with carbohydrates and fats) and is an essential part of nutrition. The molecular structure of protein contains carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen, while fats and carbohydrates are made up only of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Protein is second only to water in the body’s physical composition and makes up approximately 20% of our body weight. It is a primary component of our muscles, hair, nails, skin, eyes, and internal organs – especially the heart (muscle) and brain.

A Master's Story
Submitted by Mariko Hidaka, Tenino WA

This story has been published as it was received by MC2020.

What is not here, I create.
What I see here is an illusion.

She is a rich and beautiful young woman who everyone is jealous of her. In spite of that, she is tired of living her life because she feels that she is more than rich and young. However she doesn't know what she is missing and want to be or do.

One day, she meets a teacher who is able to send runners to everybody to experience realities. Since the teacher says that he keeps pushing his students going toward and toward to transcend this time into the future, she asks him to send her a runner because she is curious about the future. The teacher gives her a wall, literally a wall standing in her way, and he says that when she conquers the wall, she will know what she is.

Something Worth Knowing

40 Items to Barter in a Post-Collapse World
Do you know how to barter?  In preparedness circles, the term barter is used a lot when describing a post SHTF situation when goods and services may no longer be available through normal channels.  According to Wikipedia, ”barter is a method of exchange by which goods or services are directly exchanged for other goods or services without using a medium of exchange, such as money”. A lot of people think of bartering as something to do when they are down an out, perhaps unemployed, or low on cash.  But nothing could be further from the truth.  Bartering has been around from eons and is simply a smart way to acquire goods and services under the radar screen. Today I would like to share some very simple tips for bartering as well as my own suggested list of items and skills that may be useful for barter in a post-collapse economy.

Mystery Of The Ancient Stone Spheres
Can Nature Produce So Many Such Perfectly Round-Shaped Spheres?

Most famous of these ancient stone artifacts were found in Costa Rica, but similar and also very unique have been discovered in Mexico, Aruba, Haiti. Not so long ago, similar ones were also discovered in Bosnia. If the stone balls had been left at the original place, would they form a gigantic prehistoric planetarium? If there are still ancient sites aligned with stone spheres in their original position, it is believed to be related to the equinoxes and solstices. In fact, American archaeologist Samuel K Lothrop, has a theory that the stones were placed in 'astronomically-significant' alignments.

'A Great Silence Is Spreading Over the Natural World'
Bernie Krause has spent 40 years recording nature's sounds. But such is the rate of species and habitat loss that his tapes may become our only record of the original diversity of life
When musician and naturalist Bernie Krause drops his microphones into the pristine coral reef waters of Fiji, he picks up a raucous mix of sighs, beats, glissandos, cries, groans, tones, grunts, beats and clicks. The water pulsates with the sound of creatures vying for acoustic bandwidth. He hears crustaceans, parrot fish, anemones, wrasses, sharks, shrimps, puffers and surgeonfish. Some gnash their teeth, others use their bladders or tails to make sound. Sea anemones grunt and belch. Every creature on the reef makes its own sound. But half a mile away, where the same reef is badly damaged, he can only pick up the sound of waves and a few snapping shrimp. It is, he says, the desolate sound of extinction.
