Kahea Loko

By: The Pacific American Foundation

Kahea Loko is "the call of the pond. " From the ocean currents surging through the stone-walled channels to the excited cries of haumana (students) discovering fishpond life, the loko ia (fishpond) calls to us in many ways. From the broad perspective of the ahupuaa (major land division), the loko ia helps us to appreciate the connection between land and sea and to experience the rhythm of tides and seasons. From an intimate perspective, the pond leads us to discover h...

"Let that which is unknown become known. " John Papa Ii (1959) Let us not allow the broken walls of the loko ia (fishponds) to separate us from that which was known and practiced in the past. The foundations of the walls are still evident, as are the wisdom and knowledge of our kupuna. The reflections of the sun, moon, and stars upon our waters are as old as time. Let these be beacons of light to guide our haumana (students) to these ponds of knowledge. Let us help ...

Software Codes of Reality, Life and Languages! : How I Worked Out ...

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

I started writing this topic on an experimental basis in UkResident.com around 2005. There were a lot of unconnected strings of thoughts in my mind, which did connect to an idea that there is some kind of inner code links that exist behind our physical reality. Moreover, I had been making solitary researches and observations on the codes in languages, right since my childhood. This also seemed to connect heavily with the physical world. If fact, in my book: March of the ...

Einstein was right. The Big Bang never happend! www.einsteins-universe.com/en/ On the basis of the spiritual ideas of a Belgian priest and an Indian Brahmin, so-called “modern cosmology” has been peddling unadulterated mysticism for decades now. This mysticism has found worldwide distribution especially through a plethora of television documentaries, despite the fact that their pseudoscientific content has been proven to lie completely outside the laws of physics. ...

Codes of Reality! What is language? [Sample pages]

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

Higher Science!

...................... Now, compare this same scenario to that of a man. Whatever he is doing is actually something wherein a particular set of codes or lines of program are being utilised or created. When he bends, turns to the right, picks up something, and all else, actually some program line or code is being written; I do not know where. It, most probably is not in the same world that we exist in; but in some other ‘cyber’ world, where everything gets encoded and st...

Cyclone Nargis, Myanmar : Risk Reduction in Natural Resource Manag...

By: Dr. John Espie Leake

What this Book is About There is a commonly held view that the incidence and scale of disasters is increasing in the modern world although some disagreement on whether the incidence of events, such as Tsunamis, earthquakes, fires, floods etc., that can give rise to disasters is increasing. The view is understandable, both population and their built environment are increasing so more is at risk and this trend of increased risk will continue while populations continue...

The Cytoarchitectonics of the Adult Human Cortex

By: Dr. H. Lee Seldon, Translator

Why is this work so important? Most "modern" Anglo-Saxon authors cite Brodmann's 1909 work "Die Lokalisationslehre" for any reference to localization in the neocortex. However, during my own studies I found that sadly lacking in detail. For example, it contains only about 12 pages dedicated to the human neocortex. Von Economo and Koskinas apparently also felt this lack, as they wrote "Unfortunately, BRODMANN has given no description of the architectonics of this area, b...

"If we submit this book to the public after a laborious, long work of one dozen years - the work was begun by Professor V. ECONOMO in the year 1912; 1919 Dr. KOSKINAS entered into the cooperation - this does not happen with the joyful satisfaction of having created something consummate. Only an artist can possess this feeling of having created something entirely of himself. Each scientific work however - however much new it brings - rests on the groundwork of whole gener...

The Astro-Archaeology of Stonehenge

By: George Curtis

Describing a novel way of drawing the ground plan of Stonehenge with the peg and string method, revealing previously unknown relationships.

Stonehenge is a supposedly Neolithic monument located on Salisbury plain in Southern England. A study of the monument ground-plan raises a number of questions that are not answered by existing science. Questions such as: - ‘How could primitive men subdivide a circle into 56 equal parts?’ The questions are not answered with the keys provided by science. We need a ‘dumb-key’ to resolve the problems and answer the questions. The dumb-key is found by asking ourselves wha...

On The Origin Of The Human Mind, Second Edition

By: Ph.D. Andrey Vyshedskiy

“I like the idea of mental synthesis very much ... I quite agree that language evolved in a way that facilitates synthesis and transmission of the synthesized mental image. ... I don't think there can be much doubt, purely conceptually, that language was a late arrival. Whatever mutation provided the key to it would have had no selectional advantage at all, and would have just been a useless “organ,” if it could not have linked up to pre-existing thought systems.” —...

Introduction While studying the neuroscience of consciousness, I was struck with certain facts about mental imagery that seemed to shed some light on the process of the evolution of the human mind. The origin of the human mind remains one of the greatest mysteries of all times. The last 150 years, since Charles Darwin proposed that species evolve under the influence of natural selection (Darwin C, 1859), have been marked by great discoveries. Molecular biology descri...

INTRODUCTION It is a genuine pleasure and challenge for me to try to express the full extent of my emotions and reasons for writing this book on the STORY OF THE ATOM AND THE SCIENCES, with special reference to the CHEMICAL SCIENCES. In one sentence, I can distill the essence of the purpose for this study by simply stating that it has been a labor of love that transcended the written word because sentiments and ideas belong in the realm of the ethereal and the phil...

Manualul investigatorului în criminalitatea informatică

By: Min. Ministerul Tehnologiei Comunicatiei Informatiilor; Nicolae Sfetcu, Editor

Dezvoltarea tehnologică şi utilizarea pe scară largă a sistemelor informatice a adus după sine şi o serie de riscuri. Dependenţa din ce în ce mai accentuată a agenţilor economici, a instituţiilor publice şi chiar a utilizatorilor individuali de sistemele informatice ce le gestionează în mare măsură resursele, face ca aceştia să fie tot mai vulnerabili la impactul pe care îl poate avea criminalitatea informatică.

Prezentul Ghid va fi foarte folositor tuturor celor interesaţi de combaterea acestor fenomene periculoase pentru societatea noastră. Sperăm ca acest Ghid, dincolo de menirea sa de material informativ, să constituie un material de referinţă util în activitatea zilnică a destinatarilor lui. De asemenea, el poate fi punctul de plecare pentru programe de perfecţionare profesională a persoanelor implicate în acţiuni de combatere a criminalităţii informatice.

Question and Answer How to reprise lost paradise, where clansmen were always content? On this we ever ask advice, not noting our command’s contempt. Replies arise if we ask right, as sages’ sayings still console, except when wished as black or white, thus missing their integral whole. Each answer’s angst makes us ask more – thus are our suspect lives sustained, supremely sure if we spark war, for our ideals are deep ingrained. We’re punished by our primal rite...
