What Would You Take With You to the Afterlife? – Life, Death, Out-of-Body Experiences and the Journey of Consciousness

Matthew Butler, GuestPeople save up for retirement, but how well do we prepare for the journey after? Ancient cultures put great emphasis on the afterlife, because they knew consciousness continued after death. They were right: Out-of-body experiences reveal we really do exist beyond the body. Knowing this truth should inspire us to seek in life what really matters and remains after death – awakened consciousness.What is the greatest mystery of life? According to a legendar [...]

Update on the Ascension Process

There has been many questions and confusion as of late as to how the Ascension Process is going, what has happened, and what has yet to happen. The process of Ascension (also referred to as raising consciousness or raising vibration) is being activated by a Universal energy known as the Photon Belt.The Photon Belt has been named Dark Matter by the scientific community, and is currently being studied by those in the fields of Astronomy and Astrophysics. The Photon Belt appears as a dark st [...]

How Underground Therapists and Scientists Keep Psychedelic Medicine Alive Despite the Gov’t Ban

Tom Shroder, AlterNetIn the past decade, after thirty years in the deep freeze, research into the medicinal use of psychedelic drugs, ranging from psilocybin to Ketamine, and from MDMA to LSD, has begun to accelerate. FDA-approved pilot studies and clinical trials using the drugs under controlled conditions and in combination with talk therapy have shown they could be used safely, delivering promising results in a wide range of tough-to-treat maladies, including opiate and tobacco addictio [...]

Why Humanity Must Come Through

Julian Rose, ContributorNeed I say it, we are living in – and through – an apocalyptic time. Disintegration and destruction manifest at an accelerating pace as our World is buffeted by a jumbled combination of opposing energies: the distorted man made toxic ones as well as the universal vibratory waves that are an integral part of great cosmic changes.Nothing we have experienced up until now quite compares with this. There is little that could prepare us for our journey through [...]

Egyptian Mummy-Making May Have Began Far Earlier than Scientists Believed


By Sid Perkins

Long before ancient Egyptians swaddled their pharaohs in balm-and-resin-soaked linens and placed them in treasure-bedecked tombs, their more egalitarian predecessors were using essentially the same embalming recipe.

The finding, published in PLoS ONE, pushes back known use of the multi-ingredient ointment by about 2,000 years, the authors estimate. The early blend includes a resin that probably came from at least 1,000 kilometers away from the gravesites, hinting that the region already had an established and extensive trade network.

The results will have archaeologists rethinking how mummification evolved, says Alice Stevenson, an archaeologist at University College London who was not involved in the study.

Previously, the earliest known use of resin for mummification in Egypt was around 2200 bc, says Stephen Buckley, an archaeological chemist at the University of York, UK, and a co-author of the new paper. It was thought that before then, bodies buried in the region’s hot, dry sand had desiccated naturally. But now, Buckley and his colleagues’ detailed analyses of linen samples unearthed in central Egypt more than 80 years ago suggest that nature had a little help.

Ancient recipe

The samples of funerary wrappings came from four graves at a site near the Nile river called Mostagedda, where they were excavated in the 1920s and 1930s. Soon afterwards, they were placed in museums, where they sat largely ignored for decades.

Carbon dating suggests that the oldest sample had sheathed a body interred around 4200 bc, and the most recent about 3150 bc. A microscope showed that the linens were impregnated with resins, says Buckley, and mass spectrometry later revealed a complex melange of substances. The bulk of the material was a mixture of animal fats and plant sterols (which are chemically similar to cholesterol).

But between 5% and 20% of the blend was made up of pine resin and aromatic plant extracts, and there were trace amounts of plant-derived sugars and natural petroleum, possibly gleaned from an oil seep. Many of these ingredients have antibacterial properties that would have aided preservation of a body, Buckley notes.

The animal fat in the balm probably came from sponges found on the sea floor north of Egypt, the team suggests. The pine resin can be traced back to southeastern Anatolia, in what is now part of Turkey. The sources of other ingredients have not yet been identified, but the pine resin alone suggests that the Egyptians of the era, who left no written record and were largely pastoral, had established trade with distant regions.

Finally, the substance included moderate amounts of three compounds that typically form only when plant resins are strongly heated, hinting that the balm was deliberately cooked and not simply stirred together, the researchers contend.

“The discovery that these substances had themselves been deliberately processed before use points to a more sophisticated level of treatment of the dead than had previously been suspected at such an early date,” says John Taylor, an Egyptologist at the British Museum in London.

Blends used in subsequent millennia, including during the pinnacle of Egyptian mummification that began around 2900 bc, used similar — although not identical — ingredients in the same general proportions, says Buckley. The lack of fundamental change in the recipe over that extensive interval is both “sensational and surprising”, says Jana Jones, an Egyptologist and textiles researcher at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, and a co-author of the research.

“It’s interesting to see that sort of recipe that early,” says Stevenson. Bodies interred in prehistoric Egypt had all sorts of burial treatments, she notes: “It was a period of great experimentation, and no two burials were identical.”

"Green Beam" UFO Sighting over Hinckley

UFO Depiction  By Sian Young

Two witnesses have come forward separately to say they saw a very bright beam of light descend out of the sky. A UFO has been reported by a number of residents in the borough.
Two witnesses have come forward separately to say they saw a very bright beam of light descend out of the sky on the eve of Sunday July 27.

Norman Willis, 61, of Rugby Road, Burbage recalls seeing the peculiar light at around 11 pm. He said: “I had just finished watching a film and I went into my back bedroom to have a look at the sky. It was clear except for one white cloud.

“It was fairly dark but the sky and stars were clear to see. All of a sudden a bright green beam came down out of the cloud for about three seconds before disappearing. It was a continuous beam down.
“I thought it might have been a comet but I’ve not heard anyone mention anything about a comet.”

The second sighting took place on the same night but slightly earlier on. A male witness who lives on the Hollycroft estate not far from the Mill Hill Road entrance said: “I was looking out of my bedroom window which faces directly towards the west. I have a perfect view over the whole area from this window.

“At approximately 9.40 pm I happened to notice a very bright stationary blue/white light that appeared to be hovering at first but then appeared to slowly descend out of the sky, turning to a beautiful blue/green colour.

“There was not a sound as I opened my window to listen. It was dead quiet.

“The light slowly descended, very slowly, gradually turning more emerald green as it did so until it appeared to ‘drop’ behind a clump of trees and vanish. I kept looking for about half an hour afterwards but I saw nothing more.”

Graham Hill from the Leicestershire UFO Investigation Network (LUFOIN) said: “We have made checks regarding helicopter movements over the area for the date and time in question, i.e. police and air ambulance, but neither craft were in operation at that time.

“We are treating the sightings as strange but we need more information from anyone else who may have seen something at around that time on the date in question.”
