The Day of 9-9-9 passed an a bright spot lifted the Earth’s energies and sped us on the way to global transformation to beings of light and love. Like everything else in life, it is a journey to the light, and all journeys have their challenges. We welcome the bright spots with joy!
We seem to be looking at very large things in our newsletters, the Earth and all its water, Earth-like planets at our nearest star neighbour, Space itself, and the largest thing in the Universe. Rug up, it’s cold! We also look at the pride of Chinese social media, Yutu, the Moon Rover and experience Indigenous Australian places, like Dadirri, where we encounter the Earth’s narratives that give us a state of being … sometimes a self-discovery? I wonder. We look to the past again, with the discovery of another of Khufu’s solar barges, how Australia looked in the Ice Age and finish with a photographic story of a versatile koala.
All the Water on Earth
How much of planet Earth is made of water? Very little, actually. Although oceans of water cover about 70 percent of Earth’s surface, these oceans are shallow compared to the Earth’s radius. The featured illustration shows what would happen if all of the water on or near the surface of the Earth were bunched up into a ball. The radius of this ball would be only about 700 kilometers, less than half the radius of the Earth’s Moon, but slightly larger than Saturn’s moon Rhea which, like many moons in our outer Solar System, is mostly water ice. How even this much water came to be on the Earth and whether any significant amount is trapped far beneath Earth’s surface remain topics of research.

What is Dadirri?
“Dadirri is inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness. Dadirri recognises the deep spring that is inside us. We call on it and it calls to us. This is the gift that Australia is thirsting for. It is something like what you call ‘contemplation’.”
– Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann, Ngangiwumirr Elder
When Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann speaks of dadirri, she speaks of a form of deep, contemplative listening that is nothing less than a personal spiritual practice. This type of listening in stillness is widely known all across the Australian continent, in many language groups under many names. “When I experience dadirri, I am made whole again.” Miriam describes. “I can sit on the riverbank or walk through the trees; even if someone close to me has passed away, I can find my peace in this silent awareness. There is no need of words. A big part of dadirri is listening.”

Surprising Discovery of Metal Hooks in The Solar Boat of Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu

Metal hooks discovered during excavations of Khufu’s second solar boat, near the Great Pyramid of Giza, proves that ancient Egyptians had much more advanced technology for boat building than was once believed.
According to Phys.org, a piece of wood revealed during the excavations near the Great Pyramid of Giza sheds new light on the story of ship building in Ancient Egypt. The artefact contains the oldest example of when people near the Nile used metal in their boats. Archaeologists have revealed that the circular and U-shaped metal hooks were discovered in one of the pieces of a boat which was found in 1954 by Kamal el-Mallakh, along with the famous solar ship of Khufu.
Both boats were undisturbed since the day when they were buried in Giza. They are both so-called “solar ships”, which were buried in pits next to royal burials. It is believed that they were used for a pharaoh’s funeral rituals, perhaps as a part of the procession. They have also been related to the Egyptian belief about travel to the afterlife.
Czech archaeologists have unearthed an 18 meter (59.1 ft.) long boat near a tomb of an unknown member of the Old Kingdom’s elite class in Abusir (Abu-Sir), Egypt. [.] The archaeologists [.] have said that the boat is unique and in good condition – many of the boards and pegs have even been found in their original positions. The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities told the press that the remains of the ship were found on top of stones, and its orientation, length, and the pottery collected from its interior have led the team to date the boat to the very end of the Third or beginning of the Fourth Dynasty, approximately 2550 BC.”

Breaking News: There’s an Earth-like Planet Next Door!
The rumors are true! There’s an Earth-like planet orbiting our neighboring star!
China’s ‘Jade Rabbit’ Moon Rover Declared Dead
Yutu (Chinese name for Jade Rabbit Moon Rover)
Goodnight, moon bunny. The “Jade Rabbit” lunar rover adored by millions on social media has died, Chinese officials announced on August 3. According to China’s State Administration for Science, Technology, and Industry for National Defence, the Yutu rover that piggybacked on the Chang’e-3 lunar lander has stopped operating after more than two years on the moon’s surface.
During its lunar residency, the rover became a social media sensation in China: Its farewell post on Weibo received nearly a hundred thousand shares, likes, and comments, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The lander and rover, named for the Chinese moon goddess Chang’e and her pet rabbit, touched down on the northern basin known as Mare Imbrium in December 2013. Their safe arrival made China the third country ever to perform a soft landing on the lunar surface, after the Soviet Union and the United States.
Yutu’s moon mission had its share of hiccups. The rover had previously been declared dead in February 2014, when it seemed to stop functioning after a cold lunar night. The rover came back to life a few weeks later, but while it could send data to Earth, it could no longer move.
Still, with communications up and running, Yutu was able to claim the record for longest operating rover on the moon in October 2015, New Scientist’s Jacob Aron reports. The data beamed back from Yutu have contributed to more than a hundred scientific papers and deepened scientists’ understanding of lunar geology, even revealing a type of moon rock undiscovered by the U.S. and Soviet missions.

Memories of an Antediluvian world prevalent in Australian Aboriginal Legends.
Not only do the natives tell stories about the land before the water level rose, they also speak of meteor / comet fragment impacts and tsunami’s dating from approximately 9,000 -13,000 years ago. This coincides with recent theories of cometary fragment impacts ending the last ice age.
Mr Hamacher, who runs an Indigenous astronomy program at UNSW, says evidence is mounting that Aboriginal stories hold clues about events from Australia’s ancient past. Last year, he travelled to Victoria with tsunami expert James Goff, also from UNSW, to visit members of the Gunditjmara people.
“They describe this gigantic wave coming very far inland and killing everybody except those who were up on the mountaintops, and they actually name all the different locations where people survived,” says Mr Hamacher.

Peace in Space
The Treaty on Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space establishes a framework and procedures to assure that the space above all our heads will be a neutral realm from which all classes of weapons are banned and from which no hostile action shall be taken toward Earth or the surrounding Cosmos.
This Treaty invites Nation State leaders to become Signatories to this Treaty that invites Parties, including Indigenous Nations and Cosmic Cultures, to commit to plan and assist in the orderly development and implementation of a framework and procedures that will assure and verify that space is and will remain a neutral realm from which all classes of space-based weapons are legally banned in perpetuity.
While the Treaty on Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space tells the whole fascinating story of what this Treaty will do, on this website are some additional ideas that may help you understand more, and to write a personal letter and/or speak about the Treaty.

Crop Circles – The Movie
What On Earth?
Against the backdrop of the breathtaking crop circle phenomenon, storyteller Suzanne Taylor engages with an array of people who devote much of their lives to it. This fascinating community of visionary artists, scientists, philosophers, mathematicians, and educators from around the world, who converge on southern England each summer when the circles are appearing, paint pictures of the creative genius being expressed in farmlands as they try to make sense of why they are being delivered and how the world can ignore such wonders.
The film shows how intelligent the source is – how it runs rings around us, dazzling us with communications that let us see how brainy it is. Also, the movie deals with how the circles make us think about life. What is real? What is art? What is the nature of proof? What are the limitations of science? What is the place of humanity in the cosmos? “These are all big questions, and we don’t have a forum for big questions today,” says John Martineau, the brilliant geometer who showed the world there is a mathematical teaching being delivered in these crop formations.
You will see that we cannot dismiss the possibility that we are being visited by a non-human agency. And you’ll come away from the movie thinking about what that would do for us. If we knew we were not the only intelligence in the universe, we would be one humanity in relation to “the other,” and, as someone in the movie says, “That could be what saves this civilization.”

The Largest Thing in the Universe
More than ten years ago, while taking the temperature of the universe, astronomers found something odd. They discovered that a patch of sky, spanning the width of 20 moons, was unusually cold.
The astronomers were measuring the microwave radiation that bathes the entire universe, a glowing relic of the big bang. To gaze at this cosmic microwave background, or CMB, is to glimpse the primordial universe, a time when it was less than 400,000 years old.
What’s now emerging as the top hypothesis is a cosmic super-void.
The cosmic microwave background blankets the sky, and looks pretty much the same everywhere, smouldering at a feebly cold temperature of 2.725 Kelvin – just a couple degrees warmer than absolute zero. But armed with the newly launched WMAP satellite, the astronomers had set out to probe temperature variations as tiny as one part in 100,000. Born from the quantum froth that was the universe a half-moment after the big bang, those random fluctuations help scientists understand what the cosmos is made of and how it all came to be.
The Cosmic Microwave Background
And standing out amidst those fluctuations was a cold spot. Over the years, astronomers have come up with all sorts of ideas to explain it, ranging from instrumental error to parallel universes. But now, they’re homing in on a prime suspect: an enormous cavern of emptiness called a cosmic supervoid, so big that it might be the largest structure in the universe.
According to theory, such a vast void, in which nary a star or galaxy exists, can leave a frigid imprint on the Cosmic Microwave Background. The answer to the mystery, then, might simply be a whole lot of nothing. Yet puzzles remain, and the case is far from closed.

Alcheringa … when the first ancestors were created
This is the story of fifty thousand people coming from the Pleiades in a giant starship to found the human race on Earth.
It is not a simple story, but one filled with intrigue, deception, and the planned destruction of a mission that left only ninety survivors to be cast upon the Earth.
Part of the story was about their survival on a planet whose atmosphere they could barely breathe, a sun they could not expose themselves to, and a dangerous and poisonous environment that took many of the survivor’s lives.
Their struggle and success in creating our race is the miracle they brought. It is our past and they are our heritage.
