Artie,

There has been some conjecture that the Freemasons are what became of the Knights Templar who survived the Friday the 13th of October 1307 purge (purportedly the reason why Friday the 13th is unlucky).

Sorry, hosanna, I'm not tracking your question. :-)

the docu/drama What the Bleep Do We Know? starring Marlee Matlin that draws together physics and metaphysics ... http://www.whatthebleep.com/

My favourite part is the images of water that has "reacted" to different messages such as "i love you" and "you make me sick" - remember our bodies are 90% water!

hosanna,

I'm familiar with the images of water (ice crystals in this case) that formed while in proximity to all kinds of phrases, words, and images. I have to wonder if the energy that causes the crystals to form into certain patterns has less to do with the actual item and more to do with the experimenter's expectations.

I've not seen the film but will keep my eyes open for it. Hopefully it will appear on IFC or Sundance channel.

For those that have seen the new season premiers of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis - what did you think? I think that they were fabulous as usual. I love Rodney and the interaction between Vala and Daniel is soooo much fun.
P.S. I went to the Stargate convention in Burbank last weekend and it was really good. The stars are such nice people. I was surprised at how nervous and shy Tori Higginson (Dr. Weir) is, and that she is such a big animal person. She has rescued three stray dogs and one even appeared in last years episode "Going Home," I think it was called. On a related topic does everyone know about the animal rescue site? You can visit everyday and the site's sponsors feed a stray in a shelter. The site is www.theanimalrescuesite.com
Jeffrey: I hope that it is ok to highlight other websites? Thanks,
Annette

Annette,

It's very much okay to post other websites that would be of interest to people here... most espcially any that engage in activities such as animal rescue.

Thanks Trys - aka Jeff. By the way that answers a question that I had but have never asked, namely are Jeff and Trys one and the same Gryphon?

Annetevk,


quote:

are Jeff and Trys one and the same Gryphon?


Jeff is the human who maintains this website and chat area. Trys is the gryphon who is the online persona of that human. So to answer the question you really asked, i.e., is there one mind behind both names, yes. But is Jeff the gryphon, oh! no! <grin> The gryphon is the one who gets to have fun. The other is the one who deals with the technical and unnice aspects of things. I'm sure that sometimes the line blurs but that would be when Jeff forgets to change the username when posting as as the other, though I do try to keep Jeff as the official person.

As an FYI, I've made no secret of this I just don't make it widely known as I always hope the administrator will have little to do and the gryphon can have fun. ;)

Have you seen the 'Lord of War'. generally I don't like political movies but this one is based on fact and a very interesting story as well. I find that the character is a little too likable considering what he does for a living, but it is hard to dislike Nicholas Cage in anything he does. So many really good historical dramatizations even tho in the 'history versus hollywood' area, alot of facts are changed or missing altogether. I don't mind tho you can always have the History channel straighten it out for you later. I was listening to a radio commentary on the way from the coast and the speaker was saying that the fall of nations is because of the depravities they allow and he listed Rome as an example. But peopl;e forget that history is change and Rome was a world power for centuries and even then it didn't out with a bang but took centuries to fade away. Didn't it?? I love history but I have to admit most of my education in that area is mass media. However, I found 'Alexander' interesting, and 'The Kingdom of Heaven' and 'The Brothers Grimm'. [I don't think there were any facts in that one]. 'Timeline' was another film that didn't much applause, but I believe the battle it was based on happened. I'm wondering if in five hundred years, films about our era are going to be very entertaining. [grinning at ya]
