Our world could be a far better place for all life if we displaced some of the present world politics and trade with instead a better appreciation and sympathy for Buddhism...


Buddhists are too peaceful minded to ever become world leaders. A lot of people would take advantage of their goodness. Politicians have a tough ride, people are breathing in their neck and watch every move they make to criticize them whenever possible. One has to have an Ego to be a politician, otherwise you won't make it. That's the sad situation we are in these days.

It also presumes that you are looking at just the right moment in space at just the right time.


The above is what mysticism is all about.

Just because you can't see something doesn't mean its not there. It might just mean you havent found the right tools yet to detect it. To put it this way, we haven't detected any sign of alien life yet ever, despite us searching for it. Should we therefor treat it as indistinguishable from nonexistent and treat it accordingly (aka, give up looking for it)? Well no, because it would be rather premature to claim that because we haven't heard of aliens yet they probably don't exist or we should at least pretend they don't exist.


Completely agreed.

The JWST will be quite accurate in analyzing the atmosphere of exoplanets:

Why JWST is important:- This study shows that with JWST spectroscopy, it is possible to constrain or detect anthropogenic pollution in the atmospheres of exoplanets.

James Webb Space Telescope Backplane Arrives at NASA Goddard for Mirror Assembly


One of the most crucial pieces of the James Webb Space Telescope, the flight backplane, arrived on Aug. 25, on schedule for Webb's 2018 launch date at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for mirror assembly. The backplane is the "spine" of the telescope, responsible for holding its 18 hexagonal mirrors and instruments steady while the telescope is looking into deep space.

“The telescope’s beryllium mirrors are held together nearly motionlessly in space by the backplane, which also acts as a stable platform during ground test operations and launch,”

CALET docks on the International Space Station

CALET will perform accurate measurements of the electron energy spectrum from 1 GeV to 20 TeV. “The high end of the spectrum could be particularly interesting as it could help resolve the controversial interpretation of the electron and positron spectra measured by AMS-02 and could provide a clue on possible signatures of dark matter,” says John Wefel of Louisiana State University, Co-PI of the CALET project and lead of the American team participating in CALET.


Photographers, capture behind-the-scenes at CERN

CERN is teaming up with seven other large physics laboratories for an international photo competition, the 2015 Global Physics Photowalk (link is external). On 25 and 26 September, photographers from around the world will be given the opportunity to take photographs behind the scenes at these prestigious laboratories.

Right, Julie. But please explain this:

Not if you open up to the answers God provides. Hence He becomes logically possible for you yourself And you receive all the wisdom and help you need. (and that's enough in my eyes)

Which God? As said, tell the ghost to show up. In my eyes, all delusions without proof are nothing or worse, and I do not accept that in a civilised society, we should pay any attention to any primitive superstition.


I do not like the word 'spirituality' but I do believe in a spiritual world. I do believe communication through the mind is perfectly possible.
