Title change - The Big Bang: Notes from Looking Within is now The Little Universe

The Little UniverseYes, they are the same book. I should have realized The Little Universe was a better title much sooner. The name change was inevitable. The Big Bang was hardly original with dozens of astronomy books under the same title. Then there's the TV show Big Bang Theory, the Rolling Stones album, so many things. Then there was chance that readers would have on first glance, thinking it a science book that they wouldn't like. Hindsight being clearer, The Little Universe says it all much better and with paradox. Now available on Kindle at Amazon or through the website or at any other retailer in ebook and paperback formats.

The Greatest Good is like water... Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching


The greatest good is like water
which benefits all life without trying to
It resides in the purest mountain snows
and dwells in the lowest of places
Thus it is like the Tao.
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

from wikipedia;
Lao Tzu, aka Laozi and many others, was a philosopher of ancient China and is a central figure in Taoism or Daoism. Lao Tzu literally means "Old Master." He is revered simply as a wise man in philosophical forms of Taoism, but revered as a god in religious forms, much like The Buddha is regarded differently by the religious and philosophical schools of Buddhism. According to Chinese tradition, Lao Tzu lived in the 6th century BC and is traditionally regarded as the author of the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching), though its authorship has been debated throughout history.
The above is my own translation of his teaching on water being the greatest good. No, I don't speak any form of Chinese, but from going over many other different interpretations, I believe this is what Lao Tzu was saying;
that we all should strive to be ourselves, without ego getting in the way, to mix among all walks of life both rich and poor, both good and bad (whatever that means) and in between. And that by truly being ourselves, we'll actually be helping everyone around us without even trying (sort of like Forrest Gump.) Perhaps by losing the ego and letting go, we'll allow Spirit to work through us, thus being like the Tao or The Way.

I also believe if you read between the lines in the teachings of Jesus Christ, you'll find a lot of similar themes. Some scholars argue that Jesus appears to have studied Buddhism during his "missing years" between the ages of 20 and 30. Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

What are your thoughts?

Jesse Ventura Exposes HAARP

Jesse Ventura
I had the pleasure of watching former Governer of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, take on a little known yet highly controversial topic on Tru TV last night - HAARP. High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a military complex way out in Gakona, Alaska that has 180 antennas and emits crazy amounts of kilowatts into the ionosphere. It can be directed like a beam to super heat sections of the atmosphere as far as 40 to 60 miles about the surface of the Earth.

HAARP secret military science experiment in Alaska
The program is run by the military. They claim it's a harmless weather experimentation device that will better help us understand our ionosphere along with helping satellite communications and finding things like hostile submarines and such. Critics of the program point out that the military is not known for running harmless programs and that they're not being forthright with the full potentials and problems that HAARP may cause.

Nikola Tesla, Austrian scientist and pioneer inventor
The concept for the ionosphere heater was originally thought of by Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American inventor and electrical engineer who lived from 1856 to 1943. An extraordinary genius far beyond his time, Tesla was regarded by some as a mad scientist. This is probably due to the fact that his discoveries involved transmission of energy, power, electricity and more. His ideas were revolutionary, for lack of a better word. Tesla conceived and designed the AC power system we used today and so many other things that were cutting edge technology, even by today standards, including wireless transmission of electricity. His ideas involved tremendous amounts of energy, which could be used for good or evil. Nikola Tesla despised war and wanted to create weapons that would eliminate war because the weaponry could destroy essentially everything on the planet and even the planet itself. All of these ideas came to Tesla well before the atomic bomb was designed.
One of Tesla's inventions, the teleforce or death ray weapon, attests to his concept of weapons that could end war. Exactly when, how and why the scientists put together the work of Tesla and HAARP remains a mystery that the military is not openly discussing. At least people like Jesse Ventura are finally asking hard questions - like what can this thing really do and shouldn't we all know about it?

What do you think about HAARP? I admittedly don't know much about it, but I sense something concerning that makes me want to know its exact purpose and potentials. There's a book called, Angels Don't Play This HAARP; Advances in Tesla Technology by Jeanne Manning for those who'd like to learn more.

I had the pleasure of watching former Governer of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, take on a little known yet highly controversial topic on Tru TV last night - HAARP. High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a military complex way the heck out in (nowheresville) Gakona, Alaska that has 180 antennas and emits crazy amounts of kilowatts into the ionosphere. It can be directed like a beam to super heat sections of the atmosphere as far as 40 to 60 miles about the surface of the Earth. I originally wrote a blog post about this HAARP thing back in Oct 2008, and I realize my own need to learn more about it.
