Albert Einstein's Unfinished Symphony

As Albert Einstein lay on his deathbed, he asked only for his glasses, his writing implements and his latest equations. He knew he was dying, yet he continued his work. In those final hours of his life, while fading in and out of consciousness, he was working on what he hoped would be his greatest work of all. It was a project of monumental complexity. It was a project that he hoped would unlock the mind of God.

Endangered Mongolian Desert Mouse Caught On Film

The first known film of the long-eared jerboa, an endangered Mongolian rodent with legs like a kangaroo, was released today by the owners of London Zoo. The gerbil-sized long-eared jerboa (Euchoreutes naso), found in the deserts of Mongolia and China, is classed as endangered on the World Conservation Union's red list.

The nature of the threat is not well understood, but it has been suggested that it is due to habitat disturbance from mining activities, overgrazing and agriculture, as well as possibly climate change.

The introduction of the domestic cat has put further pressure on the mammal.

Soylent Green (full movie) - SciFi Starring Charlton Heston

Soylent Green is a 1973 science fiction movie starring Charlton Heston, Edward G. Robinson, Leigh Taylor-Young, Joseph Cotten and Chuck Connors.

Set in the year 2022, Soylent Green depicts a dystopia, a Malthusian catastrophe that occurs because humanity has failed to pursue sustainable development and has not halted uncontrolled population growth. The film portrays New York City's population as 40,000,000, with more than half of it unemployed. Pollution has produced a "year-round heatwave"—identified in the film, presciently, as due to a "greenhouse effect"—and a thin, yellow, daytime smog. Food and fuel are scarce resources because of animal and plant decimation and soil poisoning, housing is dilapidated and overcrowded, and widespread government-sponsored euthanasia is encouraged to control overpopulation.

Meat, bread, cheese, fruit, vegetables, and alcoholic beverages are scarce and extremely expensive; for example, a six-ounce jar of strawberry jam is 150 "Ds" (US Dollars). Like the soylent food factories, the farms producing foodstuffs are heavily guarded and off-limits to civilians. For most of the populace, natural foods are a rarely, if ever, enjoyed luxury. The government dispenses rations of synthetic food — soylent yellow, soylent red — made by the Soylent Corporation; their newest and most popular version, soylent green, is made from plankton, according to the food firm.

Soylent's food products are mostly distributed as brightly colored wafers which may be eaten with margarine, although they are also seen being sold as bread-like buns and in crumb form. The word "soylent" is a portmanteau combining soybean and lentil (cheap, very high-yield crops).[citation needed]

Specific Soylent products are distributed to the populace on different days of the week, yet even then those supplies are limited and there is much competition among people to get their rations early. The competition is such that if the supply is exhausted, rioting for food is common. To deal with this problem, the distribution centers are heavily guarded by police who deal with rioters very heavy-handedly, using "scoops" — half-loader, half-garbage truck vehicles which scoop up rioters and dump them in rear storage units; such callous, violent treatment is presumably fatal to some rioters.

In contrast, the rich elite live in spacious apartments, with regular access to real food, tobacco, and alcohol, though they often are of poor quality. Some of the rich can even afford "furniture", the film's term for concubines economically attached to the apartments.

Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) is a New York City police detective investigating the murder of William R. Simonson (Joseph Cotten), a director of the Soylent Corporation. Thorn lives with his aged "police book" partner Sol Roth (Edward G. Robinson) in a one-room tenement apartment. Long before, Sol was a college professor, but now is employed as a police researcher. Unlike most people in A.D. 2022, including Thorn, Sol received a formal education and is literate; education of any sort is available only to the wealthy elite. Sol and people such as he are known as "books", because real books are out of print, as there is no wood for paper, along with electricity, water, food, and printing press shortages.

Thorn has a brief romance with Shirl, (Leigh Taylor-Young), a "furniture girl", essentially a prostitute, attached to a rich apartment's owner in Chelsea. At one point in the film, Shirl wanted to move in with Thorn, but Thorn insisted she stay in the apartment because life was so much better there.

During his investigation of Simonson's murder, Thorn slowly uncovers a conspiracy, centered around the Soylent corporation and dealing with Tab Fielding (Chuck Connors), a merciless company heavy. Likewise Sol uncovers another shocking truth about their world, and opts to "go home", which involves voluntarily submitting himself to euthanasia. Thorn follows him but is too late to prevent Sol's death, but he is able to witness motion pictures of the beautiful Earth of former times, shown only to those being euthanised, which brings him to tears. In his final moments, outside of the audience's hearing, Sol communicates the truth about Soylent Green to Thorn and tells him that proof is needed to expose the Soylent corporation to the World Council. After Sol's death, Thorn follows the disposal of Sol's body to a heavily guarded waste-management plant, and confirms with his own eyes that Soylent green is made from the recycled cadavers brought in from the government-sponsored euthanasia centers.

The film culminates in a battle between Thorn and Tab, who proceed to shoot at each other. Having been wounded by an aimed shot from Tab, Thorn retreats into a building. The incredulous occupants can only look on. After a desperate struggle Thorn gains the upper hand and kills Tab. Thorn is left barely standing, and badly wounded. As help arrives, a visibly distraught Thorn desperately confides in his police superior, Hatcher (Brock Peters), about the real ingredients of soylent green. The stretcher bearers take away Thorn. Hatcher looks only half-able to believe and comprehend Thorn's revelation. This leads to his famous outcry, "Soylent Green is people!"

Could Roman Catholicism Be Veiled Sun Worship

All through the Roman Catholic churches we find iconography and relics of "sun worship", the true pagan mark of ancient babylon and egypt. When the priest holds the "monstrance with the host" up in the air, around the host we see the symbolic rays of the sun, and the priests expects everyone to bow down to this.

Then we find the fake halos over the saint statues heads, which is nothing but a depiction of sun worship.

The Pharmacratic Inquisition 2007 - Astrotheology, Shamanism And The Christmas Tradition

How deep does the rabbit hole go? Gnostic Media is proud to present the official online edition of The Pharmacratic Inquisition 2007. If you enjoyed “Zeitgeist - The Movie”, you will love this video; the creators of this video are listed as one of the sources for the Zeitgeist Movie. The Pharmacratic Inquisition 2007 is a video version of the book, “Astrotheology & Shamanism” by Jan Irvin & Andrew Rutajit. The painstakingly detailed and heavily footnoted research in the book comes to life in this video and is now available to you for FREE! For further research of the claims made in this video, please read Astrotheology & Shamanism - this book is available to order as a combo with the DVD.

Thousands of years ago, in an era prior to the reign of the Monarchies, sacred plants and other entheogenic substances where politically correct and highly respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them. Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites and rituals. These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it.

In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into a character or a deity; consequently, their stories and practices could easily be passed down for generations. Weather changes over millenniums caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El - God), all of the tribe's knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost. The Church’s inquisitions extracted this sacred knowledge from the local Shamans who were then exterminated… It is time to recognize the fact that this Pharmacratic Inquisition is still intact today and seek out ways to break it down.
