Hindu and Buddhist group meditation is all about breathing together.

Air pollution will be considered the same then, as poisoned food is now.

In fact, poisoned air is the current source of a lot of "incurable" diseases .

Since the Senate and Supreme Court Republicans have already decided that Trumpeached is above the Law, the entire "trial" is a farce anyway.

Yes, we have widespread general pollution thanks to pseudoscientific activities. Like for example firefighting foam composed of perfluorinated chemicals, dumped onto organic farms and into waterways.

All kinds of toxic chemicals are constantly being introduced into the atmosphere. This is a world-wide health problem.

Kumarbis also bit off and swallowed his phallus
which detail parallels Kronos' castration of Ouranos.

In this act Anus had some revenge
by impregnating Kumarbis with the Storm-god
the god of the Aranzahas (Tigris) river, and Tasmisus.
Anus then hid himself in heaven.
After the Storm-god's 'birth' or regurgitation
this triad plotted to destroy Kumarbis
and, with his other children, succeeded.

Although this part of the Hurrian story diverges somewhat from the Greek
we can still recognize that this impregnating of Kumarbis equates to Kronos' swallowing his children before both finally regurgitating them.



The respective children overthrew both of these gods
of whom the 'Storm-god' was the leader in both myths.
The 'impregnation' of Kumarbis also reflects another theme
recalled in such myths as Zeus' swallowing of his pregnant wife Metis
before 'giving birth' to Athena from his head
- a theme that is otherwise very strange to the other Indo-European peoples.

The 1973 movie "Soylent Green" is a cautionary tale for vegans everywhere....know your food-source.

Same for eaters of ground meat.

The myth of sodomization/castration of the father god is probably a fanciful story retelling what happened to our grandfather Noah by his son Ham by postdiluvian nations.

Kronos/Saturn killed his father, the personification of the Heavens, and possessed his mother, the personification of the Earth. Classic Oedipus Complex.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

There has been nothing in American history
that compares to
the coup attack against President Trump.
It has been nothing but a wild abuse of the Constitution.
The word impeachment should be replaced with the word coup
because the president was illicitly targeted for removal from office

for doing his job

i.e.
asking questions about Ukraine corruption
and its ties to Joe Biden
his son Hunter Biden and Burisma.
To be clear
the president was also attacked for
objecting to the House Democrats’ abuse of his office.
The U.S. Senate should reject these acts
of tyranny by the House of Representatives.
call your senators to let them know what you think about this latest
assault on our American system. You can reach them at 202-225-3121.

Ge directly equates with the Sumerian earth-goddess 'Ki'
both etymologically and in mythology.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Ki was originally united with the 'heaven' god 'An' (or 'Anu').
His name, like Ge's consort Ouranos, means 'sky' or 'heaven'
and also appears etymologically related to his Greek counterpart.

Like Ouranos, Ki was the original creator-god mated to the earth goddess.

Ge's son Kronos, like Ki's son (the air-god Enlil)
finally separated her from her mate, and succeeded his father
as the supreme deity.

In my opinion, the postulated instinctual psychosexual forces behind the Oedipus Complex do not exist. What exist, however, are certain spiritual forces not acknowledged by current science, hence its inability to satisfactorily explain any of these phenomena - Romans 1.

Mother Earth, "Gaea/Gaia" (Greek to Latin).

The ancient Egyptians saw the Earth as masculine, personified as "Geb", the Earth Father.

The ancient Egyptians had the gender of the Heavens as feminine, with the goddess of the Heavens, corresponding to Ourania/Urania, as "Nuit', wife of Geb.
