The Scale of the Universe

scale of the Universe is simply astounding. The best way for the layperson
to understand the distances we are dealing with is not to use words like
Parsecs or light years, but rather to use easy to understand analogies. Link

UFO on the way to the Orion Nebula

The image above is a photo from the Hubble telescope of the Orion Nebula. It is freely available for download from their website.

The image above is the same picture at full zoom, you can see a small artifact in the middle of the picture.

The picture above is a bigger resolution of the same image, this is a 18000 x 18000 pixel image (24Mb JPG), that I cropped out the section concerned.

What do you think it is? Maybe an alien mother ship, somewhere between us and the Orion Nebula. If it's several thousand kilometers away, it means that the UFO is several kilometers long.

Seems like NASA forgot to airbrush this out.

France opens secret UFO files covering 50 years

Have a look here and here. This is quite a move on this subject, could be that they are following requests from The Disclosure Project.

A discussion of Tax

You've heard the cry from across South Africa in the last couple of weeks: "It's just a tax cut for the rich!" - and then it's accepted as fact. But what does that statement really mean? The following explanation may help.

Suppose that every night, ten men go out for dinner at La Porchetta's.

The bill for all ten comes to R1000.

They decide to pay their bill IN the way we pay our taxes, and it goes like this:

The first four men (the poorest) paid nothing.

The fifth paid R10

The sixth R30,

The seventh R70,

The eighth R120,

The ninth R180,

The tenth man (the richest) paid R590

All 10 are quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner says:

"Since you are all such good customers, I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by R200."

So now their dinner for ten only costs R800.

The group still decides to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes.

The first four men are unaffected. They will still eat for free.

But how should the other six, the paying customers, divvy up the R200 windfall so that everyone would get his "fair share"?

They realise that R200 divided by six is R33.33.

But if they subtract that from everybody's share, then the fifth and sixth men would each end up being paid to eat.

The restaurateur suggests reducing each man's bill by roughly the same percentage, thus:

The fifth man pays nothing (like the first four) instead of R10 (100%saving)

The sixth pays R20 instead of R30 (33% saving)

The seventh pays R50 instead of R70 (28% saving)

The eighth pays R90 instead of R120 (25% saving)

The ninth pays R140 instead of R180 (22% saving)

The tenth pays R490 instead of R590 (16% saving)

Each of the six are better off, and the first four continue to eat for free, as now does the fifth - but outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

" I only got 10 Rand out of the R200," declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man "but he got R100!"

" That's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved 10 Rand too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than me!"

" That's true!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get R100 back when I got only R20? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

" Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"

The nine men then surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn't show up for dinner.

The nine sat down and ate without him, but when they came to pay the bill, they discovered that they didn't have enough money between all of them to meet even half of the bill!

That, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works.

The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction.

Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table anymore.

Richard Lalancette - Nexus of Science/Spirituality/Space

Found a great site that supports The Disclosure Project. Richard has a nice summary of what Dr Steven Greer is doing. Quite a few movie clips to watch, but fascinating stuff.

The Disclosure Project

The Disclosure Project is a non-profit organization, started by Dr. Steven M. Greer in 1993, with the intention of de-classifying and disclosing all information on UFOs and extraterrestrial-related issues the group alleges the U.S. government has classified and kept secret. The group also requests open and honest hearings regarding the UFOs, extraterrestrials, and advanced-energy and propulsion systems that also allegedly remain classified.
