IN SPITE OF GREAT ADVANCES IN FORMAL METHOD IN SOCIAL SCIENCE, MUCH OF THE UNDERSTANDING OF PERSISTING AND GENERAL RELATIONSHIPS DEPENDS UPON A GRASP THAT IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT OF SOME FORMAL METHOD. IN ADVANCING SOCIAL SCIENCE, WE INVENT AND PRACTICE TECHNIQUE AND CULTIVATE A HUMANISTIC ART. (Robert Redfield)

Violence and the Need for Tribalism

Each of us individually struggles with the paradox of good and evil within, but a tribe creates a container that holds these disparate elements. Tribalism is a perennial archetype that re-emerges whenever it is absent in the dominant culture. In our decidedly non-tribal culture, the archetype may appear as belonging to a gang, being a Dead-Head, or talking about what Jerry Seinfeld did in last night's episode with the coworker in the next cubicle. In all these cases, the tribe creates a feeling of belonging through unified meaning. This meaning, implicit or explicit, becomes the group's mission statement and raison d'etre. And the mission statement can be anywhere along a spectrum of possibilities. They can be syntropic, healthy, and positive or destructive, dystopic and entropic.
Gangs are tribes. It is not tribalism which creates the problem of gang violence, nor is violence inherent to gangs. It is using violence to create meaning which is the problem. This raises the question, why would anyone choose violence as a source of meaning?

Sealand skull photos released

Columnist: Anton Spangenberg

An alien survivor from a prehistoric saucer crash? An unfortunate time traveler from the future? A tradesman from a parallel universe? A hitherto undiscovered species? Or a mere freak deformity of a human being? Nobody knows for sure, but no matter the explanation, the Sealand Skull has potential to change the view of the world we live in.

The July 2007 discovery of the skull in Olstykke on the Danish island Sealand did however not make headlines and remained largely ignored by science until 2010. The researchers who in 2008 examined the skull at the Veterinarian High School in Copenhagen merely concluded that “Although resembling a mammal, certain features make it impossible to fit the animal into Linnaean taxonomy”.

Dug up during the replacement of old sewer pipes, the finder at first believed that it was some horse bone, as the house formerly belonged to a horse butcher, and the garden is full of remains. It was not until refilling the trench that he noticed its humanoid shape. Later excavations at the site have not uncovered further remains with connection to the creature, only identifiable animal bones, stone axes and other Neolithic tools which are common to the area. The fact that the skull was found among Neolithic remains does however, not reveal its age. Carbon 14 dating at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen has shown that the creature lived between 1200 and 1280 AD. Furthermore, the skull was found above the old pipes, whose age suggests that it wasn’t buried until after 1900. Also the absence of other skeleton parts of the creature, together with the skull’s state of preservation, has led the scientists to suspect that it has not been buried for long, probably only a couple of decades.

Perhaps to conceal the secret behind its existence someone stored it for ages and later deliberately buried it. It is interesting to note that residents in Olstykke and nearby villages have from former times told about a local member of l’Ordre Lux Pégasos (the Order of Pegasus’ Light), whom accordingly on behalf of the order protected various items – among them a mysterious cranium and several devices made of extraordinary light, albeit unbreakable metal or ceramics. The skull is said to have originated from the Balkans, but it has also been stored in Paris, France, and in Munich, Germany, before arriving in Denmark.

If the story holds true, it is possible that further research may lead to the whereabouts of alien artefacts. It is plausible that l’Ordre Lux Pégasos still keeps objects as well as insights into their origin and purpose. Little is known about the order however, except that it was established around 1350 and throughout its existence has counted influential poets and authors among its members. Among the prominent initiated were Giovanni Boccaccio, William Shakespeare, Réne Descartes, Thomas Jefferson, Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Ambrose Bierce, Karin Boye, H.G. Wells, Julio Cortázar, Joseph Heller, Octavia Butler, Aleksandr Solsjenitsyn and Ahmed al-Baghdadi. One can wonder why the task of preserving alien artefacts and knowledge fell upon an order solely consisting of writers, but the very name of the order does hint at one or more guests from the Pegasus constellation, who for some time lived among us and brought us vast knowledges and inspiration. The secrecy of the order however suggests that humanity is not yet ready to share the Pegasian knowledge.

The Sealand Skull is about one and a half times larger than a male Homo sapiens cranium. Especially the eye sockets contribute to its size. Its smooth surface reveals that the creature was adapted to cold climate, and its relative eye size that it was either a night creature, lived underground or on a planet orbiting a remote or dim star, probably an orange or red dwarf. It is noted that the star 51 Pegasi in the Pegasus constellation was the first Sun-like star known to have a planet. Planets orbiting the Pegasus star HR 8799 were the first to be directly imaged, and spectroscopic analysis of HD 209458 b, another planet in the constellation, has provided the first evidence of atmospheric water vapor beyond our solar system.

Mysterious humanoid caught in Lake Travis, Texas. Analysis...


In 2007, a college biology professor was taking some night shots by the Lake Travis, Texas, when suddenly he noticed two points of light ahead of one his students. Thinking it could be an animal, the professor had the shot light-blasted and took a couple of images. Later, while checking the pics, he noticed a blurred humanoid vulture in the place where he saw the two luminous points. Then he took the images to expert and paranormal investigator, Brad Steiger, that took the material to some photo laboratories. They enhanced the pics and the final result disclosed a 11 - 14 feet tall humanoid, wearing some odd suit. Steiger sent the images to Eddie Middleton, from Examiner, that posted them on website. Middleton regarded the vulture could be a Hopi ghostly apparition, but Steiger and the professor claimed it could be an alien. I did this video based in such pictures. If you have something to report about Lake Travis area, bring it on.

The torture of Credo Mutwa

Put simply: what you give out you get back – often with interest – and so the ‘winners’ who ‘win’ by hurting, exploiting and parasiting off others (‘Oh, haven’t they done well?’) are the biggest losers of all. They are just too greedy and ignorant to see it.
The consequences of such behaviour, for this life and those to come, will return to give them what they gave out - and more. Only that way can those consumed by greed, self and vindictiveness see that it’s not the way to treat your fellow expressions of the Infinite. So those who have stolen the money from Credo Mutwa's books and stolen the Necklace of the Mysteries think they have got away with it. But they are just a ticking clock until the consequences come flying back.
It’s the same with the man who stole years of income from my books – he went to jail for not paying tax on what he stole! Talk about instant karma. The book distribution company that helped him to fleece me went bankrupt and the big New York legal firm that charged me far more than necessary to deal with the case went into liquidation.
And it is the same with the single person with no dependents who is currently seeking to clean me out through the courts and, on top of that, demanding nearly $5,000 a month from me in unearned income with monthly payments continuing until I am nearly 70. No, I'm really not kidding.
This person is trying to ‘win’ – ‘if you want a war you can have one (I don’t)’ – but by even thinking of such demands, never mind employing a barrister to secure them, this person has already lost in a way they don't even begin to understand.
And those pathetic and ignorant people who are urging this person on to exploit and, in effect, destroy my work, have also already lost just as comprehensively.
As Martin Luther King said: ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice’. And at this time of great energetic change, the end of a vibrational age, that arc is becoming shorter by the hour.
You cannot hide from cause and effect, you can only kid yourself you can, or convince yourself that when you cheat or exploit someone it is either justified, only what you deserve, or 'their own fault'.
No matter, tick, tick, tick, karma's a comin'.
Enjoy the necklace, chaps.

Credo Mutwa presents a cultural and historical view you are not likely to encounter in your regular history books. What I have found most fascinating are the stories related to some of Credo Mutwa's personal experiences. This is the real version of Africas history - not the history given to Africa by white colonists.
