The Gods of Atlantis and Lemuria

secretsoftheserpent

When Atlantis and Lemuria sank the survivors scattered around the world.  The Mayans say sixty million people died in Lemuria during the cataclysm that sank Atlantis and Lemuria.  I can’t find a record of how many died in Atlantis.  There were survivors.  If there wasn’t survivors we would not be here today.  Let’s look at just who the survivors were.

Native American History

secretsoftheserpent

The Americas have been inhabited for a very long time. The people of the Americas have been here just as long if not longer than the people of the east. The Native Americans traded with others around the world. There have been many artifacts found in the Americas that are considered Asian, Egyptian and Viking. The Bering Straight is one big lie. The ancients were very good seafarers.

Our Minds Limit Science

secretsoftheserpent

Our ego mind is what limits us. We are our own worst enemies. We can’t be wrong. We have to have others think like us. The ego will get itself into trouble constantly. Science is not immune to the ego. In fact science is being run by one of the biggest ego trips ever in history. Until we get science and the human race out of the ego, we will not advance.

Science is Dead

secretsoftheserpent

Science is dead and we have killed it. It has delegitimized common sense. Science has become the new Catholic Inquisition. Anti-science is the new word for heretic. Science was meant to help us make choices not make the choice for us. Whales and many other animals are more valuable to us dead than alive so we hunt them. Trees are more valuable to us dead than alive so we chop them down and make lumber. The science inquisition consisting of media and technology has figured out that dead minds are more valuable than minds that think for themselves. They can make so much more money keeping people isolated on computers, television, video games and phones.

Secret Societies

secretsoftheserpent

So many people think the world is being run by secret societies. Garbage about the illuminati is all over the internet. Secret societies began in the ancient world. In ancient times a person wanting to join a secret society had to go through certain rituals and ceremonies. All the important phases of life were marked with ceremony, ritual and symbols. The person had to pass trials, obligations and revelations in order to prepare to become part of the order. Once they were accepted they received the wisdom of their people. They had to prove they were worthy of the wisdom by undergoing trials of real or psychological dangers. The number one thing they had to prove was to show they would self sacrifice for their people.

These Male Trees Turn Female Even If It Kills Them

What goes on in a forest might be none of our business.  Curious minds, however, always want to know.

In the lower canopy layers of Appalachian forests, a particular tree known as striped maple (Acer pensylvanicum) does something that very few trees do.

It changes sex.

Males become females.  Females become males.

In academic circles, this phenomenon is known as sequential hermaphroditism.  Some plants do it when stakes are high.  In the case of striped maple, males become females even if it kills them.

Why does this happen, and what else is known about sex changes in plants?  In a brand new video, I introduce some important questions and wonder about them aloud.

If you’re interested in learning more, check out the brand new video!

This animal does not change sex but it does change the way people maneuver through the woods.  I recently spotted a few timber rattlesnakes in a Pennsylvania forest.  To see photographs and to read more about my encounters, check out the latest Instagram post!Click to view post

My Adventures in Making Corn Husk Paper

The Herb Society of America Blog

By Angela Magnan

Corn husks for papermakingAfter watching a video online about making paper from corn husks, I thought it would be fun to try. I had never made paper before, but the video made it look easy. Don’t they always?! I first made some using the husks from six ears. After it didn’t really go well, I bought a book with more detail and tried again. 

But like many DIY projects that I try for the first time, or even the second, making paper out of corn husks reminded me that watching a video is no substitute for a detailed book, which in turn is no substitute for experience. It also reminded me that when trying something new, I should perhaps follow the directions. 

Corn husks and stalks are some of the many plant materials commonly found in home gardens that can be made into paper. Grass and leaf fibers are some…
