Do you believe in destiny? Do you feel each creature in our world has a special role to play? Have you ever wondered about the role of humans, and about your own place in the scheme of things? Have amazing coincidences ever happened to you that simply could not be chance, or rationally explained? Questions like these drew me into biology, then into evolutionary science. The more I discovered, the stranger it all seemed.
Life is so complex that science, until very recently, could not say what it was. Life is also so simple that even the smallest bacterium does it with no problem at all. You and I grew ourselves from a single egg. We repair and guide our fabulously complex body without a clue as to how it works or why. Most humans on our planet could not say how many bones there are in their hand, yet each one of us grew our own hands and can do amazing things with them. We each have a mind capable of creating and operating ourself, but our conscious mind has no access to it. Why not? There are controls at work, but what are they? How on earth do they work?
Join Freddy and me on a global quest to seek the answers. Together we will reveal the threads that weave our becomming from the cosmos. It is a voyage beyond the horizons of perceptions into This Magic Sea of knowledge. Our expedition will take us deep into the South Pacific where we will visit some of the most unusual and beautiful places on Earth. This is a real expedition, carefully documented, and though it will seem very strange at times, it is an accurate account.
1. Sharing the true life experience of the expedition in the Log of the Research Vessel Moira in the South Pacific.
2. Making unexpected discoveries within This Magic Sea as we explore the ancient Thread of Awareness in Chaos woven by the creatures of Sea.
3. Improving your ability to perceive the Thread of Awareness in Chaos and navigate into and through This Magic Sea.
It is something of a challenge, discovering all there is to discover about the thead of awareness matrix within the world wide web (a primary circuit in the electronic mind of man). Consider it a test of your exploratory skills.
Or, if you would like to know where all the files are located, use the Navigation Tables (Table of Contents) that lists all of the files on this matrix in sequential order. You might wish to bookmark the table of contents to find your way back to a particular subject. Otherwise follow your instincts, if you see something that interests you, go that way and see where you wind up.
For a fun excursion into a fantasy Magic Sea visit the wonderful Mermaid Art of Merle des Isles
Some additional news:
The Log of the Moira, the Thread of Awareness and the associated network of websites were all written well before the invention of the World Wide Web. They begin in 1976 when Frederique and I set sail aboard the Research Vessel Moira to explore the global evolution of mind on our planet.
The expedition changed course in 1984 when I began exploring ways to change the behavior of populations of people - hoping to find ways to convince people to stop destroying our global web of life. I worked with the South Pacific Commission's Regional Environmental Program on environmental education projects. Eventually it became clear that the well meaning projects, mostly funded by Aid and the United Nations, were never going to accomplish the goal of actually changing the behavior of people to improve - and not destroy - the "resources" of the Pacific islands.
I then began my own experiments on population behavior modification with community participation in natural science expeditions.. The experiments are detailed in the Tellus Consultants website. One project, Sea Keepers , created a website in 1996 to encourage primary and secondary schools to begin participatory environmental science projects. I learned how to create websites at the University of Auckland's Hyper Media Center three years after the invention of the World Wide Web and the Sea Keepers site became one of the first websites of it's kind on the planet.
In 1997 I began to publish the Log of the Moira, This Magic Sea, and the Thread of Awareness in Chaos websites.
In 2000, in the build-up to the CO2 summit meeting I created the Integrated Clean Energy for Peace and Climate website. It starts with this comment:
Even the most skeptical person, uncertain of the impact of fossil fuels on the world's climate, must agree that our global reliance on oil, coal and gas is causing serious and expensive problems for people everywhere on Earth. There is nothing controversial about the hundreds of billions of dollars spent each year on wars, health bills, loss of wildlife, and budget crunch caused by our reliance on carbon based fuels. The costs of our global energy crisis are richly covered in all our daily media channels. According to the world's scientific consensus these costs are insignificant compared to the damage caused to our planet from carbon-induced climate change. But even without this overshadowing global catastrophe, there is a firm economic foundation for a shift to integrated clean energy.
When the evil forces of the Fossil Fuel Cartel again filibustered the conference and installed Mr. Bush in the white house (despite his losing the election to Gore) I believed the "cause" of changing people's behavior to improve the health of our living planet was irrevocably lost. Today, 16 years later, I have not changed my analysis, despite the Paris agreement to (try to) limit CO2 emmissions.
Fredy and I turned from environmental issues to tourism and we created the Rocket Guide tourism guides to New Caledonia and a Travel planner for Vanuatu and cruising guide to New Caledonia and a cruising guide to vanuatu.
We also set up a website for our good friend Chloe Morin who had her sights set on being a Superyacht Services Agent in Noumea, New Caledonia.
