New and/or Recently
section has just been constructed, although some pages are still be added.
This gives an overview of some fundamental metaphysical alternatives, from
materialism to Monism and Emanationism. Eventually various other
pages will be linked back to these definitions, when I get round to revising
them - lol!
Shaivite section has been put up (Monistic Indian cosmology) but it
is still sort of rough. Kashmir Shaivism (also known as Pratybijna
and Trika) is an incredibly profound philosophy that explains how cosmic
reality and finite existence comes about through the self-limitiation of
the Absolute Consciousness
page has a table that lists past and possible
future technological developments. An amalgamation of history,
sci fi, and pure speculation. It is still quite incomplete of course.
I welcome any feedback.
A page for each of the Sefirot in
the Kabbalistic "Tree of Life" has been set up.
The Sefirot of esoteric
Judaism (or Kabbalah) and Western Hermeticism
(Qabalah) in many ways
represent the macrocosmic equivalent to the Chakras
of Indian Tantra and
the modern "New Age" movement.

Appropriate for this advance to the millenium, I've updated my Cyberpunk
section, although it's still extremely incomplete.

In an attempt to streamline the site (and
shorten the URLs!) I have rearranged some of the directory structure.
Now no URL is larger than four directory layers (previously I had a quite
a few at five layers).
The Index page for the Cosmos
section has been jazzed up a bit, but still needs heaps of work.
(The subheadings are still totally incomplete)
For those interested in the minutae of the history
and evolution of Holy Mother Gaia - our Planet Earth, some more work has
been done on the Late
Triassic period - Carnian Age page. This page refers to
the time when the Dinosaurs had just evolved, but were still really under
the foot of the big Thecodontian reptiles of the time, like this carnivorous
I am also revising the Links page
What are the chakras?
What is the historical background
of the idea?
What is the "rainbow body"
I am presently revising my section
on the chakras -
the centres or organs of consciousness
within the subtle body
How do we clasisfy the living world?
what is a species? what is
a class, a phylum, a kingdom?
And why is cladistics the dominant
in understanding the relationships
between living organisms?
This section is also being updated.
