    no but people DO need to be given full information about the risks in order to give informed consent otherwise it is a breach of the nuremburg code and doctors and nurses have not been giving people the full information


    you don't 'know' that


    If you were British, you would've said!

    if they make them mandatory to some then they can push that out to other sections of society



    Looks like things are going the other way.

    ok but are all of those unjabbed NHS employees, some of whom have thrown their scrubs outside no 10 in protest, then going to go back to work, unjabbed, and continue to jab the british public?


    You'd have to ask them that yourself, but people don't have to be jabbed if they don't want to be. IRC you once said you're not British, but Covid vaccines aren't compulsory in the UK.

    they've been shaping popular culture for a long time


    walt disney was a member of the de molay society


    Beethoven and Mozart were also in the Fraternity, but being a member doesn't automatically  make a person bad or evil. Same with Kipling, I don't think he was a bad person. I've met Masons who were friendlier than some Christians I've known.

    you know another metaphorical childrens work written by a freemason was 'pinocchio'


    Yes, I'm going to do a similar summary about the hidden messages in Pinocchio as well because like "The Jungle Book", Pinocchio too is a metaphor. I've been studying the story since the 1990's.


    Pinocchio spent time in a whale. Manly P. Hall explains here the occult meaning of Whale symbolism:


    "When used as a symbol of evil, the fish represented the earth (man's lower nature) and the tomb (the sepulcher of the Mysteries). Thus was Jonah three days in the belly of the "great fish," as Christ was three days in the tomb. Several early church fathers believed that the "whale" which swallowed Jonah was the symbol of God the Father, who, when the hapless prophet was thrown overboard, accepted Jonah into His own nature until a place of safety was reached. The story of Jonah is really a legend of initiation into the Mysteries, and the "great fish" represents the darkness of ignorance which engulfs man when he is thrown over the side of the ship (is born) into the sea (life)." (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages)


  5. I hope today's protests in London and Manchester put even more pressure on Boris to do a u-turn regarding mandatory jabs for NHS staff...








    Boris Johnson may have to pause dismissals of unjabbed NHS staff over vaccine mandate or face the sack himself


    The first glimmer of a change of heart came this week from the PM himself, but few noticed...


    Since the Commons passed the necessary legal regulations earlier this month, there have been growing calls for the plan to be paused if not scrapped altogether, not least amid new evidence that two jabs are not as effective against the Omicron variant anyway.


    And now, with just days to go until the 3 February deadline for all staff to get their first vaccine dose, I understand that the Department of Health and Social Care is actively considering suspending the policy.


    The first glimmer of a change of heart came this week from the PM himself, but few noticed. There’s an old joke among veteran MPs that if you want to keep a secret, say it on the floor of the House of Commons. That’s because after most big set-pieces like PMQs or the start of ministerial statements, both MPs and reporters leave the chamber.


    This Wednesday, in a quiet moment well after all the drama of a Tory defection to Labour and David Davis’s “in the name of God, go” bombshell, Johnson was quizzed by lockdown-sceptic Mark Harper on the vexed issue of NHS staff jabs.


    After hailing the way the threat of compulsion had driven up NHS jab rates, the PM uttered seven potentially significant words: “We will reflect on the way ahead.” To underline this was not just flannel to buy off a critic, he later told another compulsory jabs opponent, Danny Kruger (who was once the PM’s political secretary): “I repeat my careful words.”

    That hint of a reprieve has given hope to those MPs who share dire concerns of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and Royal College of Midwives (RCM) that the compulsory jabs policy will do more harm than good.



    Along with the lifting of “Plan B” restrictions, pausing the mandate would also fit with the wider message from Government that its focus is on getting life back to normal, without extra disruption for the health service or for the public at large.


    The politics of the PM’s current leadership woes may prove crucial. With so many MPs already upset by both partygate and tax rises, he can’t afford another band of dissidents who worry the NHS could be tipped into fresh crisis in April.

    And this is the other part of the problem. A large majority of people are that disillusioned with politics it means they can't be bothered to go and vote. In the meantime, the 'diehard voters' continue to go and vote for Labour or Conservative, because that's what they've always done. The turnouts get smaller every year, but its the majority of those votes that count. It truly is a 'tyranny of the minority'.


    I'm 45 now and have voted at every election I have been able to since I was 18. I may not vote Labour or Conservative, but at least I have made a stand, and my 'wasted vote' counts more than those who can't be bothered to go and vote.


    Who would you recommend voting for?

    i think there was an actual case of children raised by wolves in india


    What's to stop a grown man learning? But the story is a metaphor. The important thing is that he found love. Same is true with the endings of other stories of a fairy tale nature, like the Prince in Sleeping Beauty, who also found love.

    It's almost like the general population are being conditioned/coerced into voting Labour at forthcoming elections. 🤔


    Because "Tories = bad" thus "Labour = good"


    I know it wouldn't make much difference whichever party was in power, in May 2022 we have our first council elections in Birmingham since 2018, and while many people are unhappy with the way the current Labour council is running (ruining?) the city, with such 'toxic feeling' towards Boris and the current Tory government, people are going to end up 'tricked' into voting Labour again. Same goes for the neighbouring borough of Sandwell, over the last couple of years it was looking like the Tories were beginning to mount a 'breakthrough' to end the Labour party's 40+ year control of the council, but people will head to the polling stations again and vote for Labour candidates because "Boris is a liar".


    Now imagine what would happen if we ended up with yet another 'snap' General Election this year?


    That's the only way that SIR Keir Starmer will get to be Prime Minister, by conning people into voting Labour because "they can't do much worse than this Tory pile of shit".



    The political left vs right is a sham, I agree. I voted once after I left school, but haven't voted since the early 80's.

    I have only read terrible reviews about his courses.


    Seems like a bit of a con man and wanna be, who occasionally makes some good content....


    A great number of people feel that they've been ripped off by Brian Rose. I've got no reason to personally hate or disliker him, but I do feel sorry for the people who trusted him and feel betrayed.

    How does Mowgli represent a humanity that wants to live in nature? He didn't 'want' to, he was lost and then got raised by wolves.



    Mowgli became friends with the animals. As he grew older, he didn't collaborate with humans who wanted to cause trouble in the jungle, and the animals that helped Mowgli develop human-like qualities, so it was a mutually beneficial relationship.

    I like nature, wolves, etc. Not sure about the anti-tiger sentiment though....



    I love real tigers, but I writing about a metaphor... referring in particular to the 1942 Technicolor action-adventure film version of "The Jungle Book", directed by Zoltan Korda. In this film, Shere Khan is portrayed as Cain, who as described in the book of Genesis, killed his brother, Able. In the introduction to the film, the narrator describes Shere Khan:

    "The Tiger - the killer the man eater, the villain who first brought murder to the jungle clan - Shere Khan.

    It's said that in his first kill, when he was Cain to some poor Able of the glades, when he ran from the scene of his crime, the trees and creepers whipped him with their branches and striped his yellow hide with the mark of Cain. This evil lord must have his dish-lickers his bullies for attendants; the jackal and the hyena, hungry for the scraps of the murderous master's feast." (from the 1942 version of "The Jungle Book", directed by Zoltan Korda)

    Max Heindel, an American occultist, astrologer, mystic and Rosicrucian, wrote that Freemasonry originated with Cain, who was "the son of a widow". He wrote, "They have lost their spiritual sight and are imprisoned in the forehead of the body where it is said Cain was marked; they must wander as prodigal sons in the comparative darkness of the material world, oblivious to their high and noble estate..."

    At the end of the Disney story, the jungle is severely damaged by a fire. Mowgli is confronted by Shere Khan, but Mowgli sets fire to his tail. Shere Khan, terrified of fire, runs away.



  11. Shelob, in The Lord of the Rings, has been associated with symbolising a sexual threat, her mouth being like a 'toothed vagina', a maternal entity that devours masculine identity in a castrating embrace.


    Shelob is the mother of the matrix. She's also a monster that tries to prevent anyone escaping from the matrix.


    In Cirith Ungol, 'the pass of the spider' that leads to Mordor, Shelob paralysed Frodo, but using the special sword, "Sting", Sam fought Shelob. She advanced, seeking to crush Sam with her soft squelching body, but she thrust down on the erect sword. Wounded and almost blinded with the light from the Phial of Galadriel, she retreated into darkness.


    Thanks to Sam, Frodo survived the ordeal, however, it left Frodo with a wound, and it was this injury, and another that prevented Frodo from remaining in the Shire and being happy there, so he boarded a ship and travelled to "the Undying Lands", a special place outside of Middle-earth, which is only welcome to immortals and Ring-bearers.

    I can confirm there is a war in the astral worlds. 



    Astral reality and dark matter is a fascinating subject, just to think so much is going on without us always being consciously aware of it, but it's also exciting because it means, once the "fog" and spidery web of deceptions, and lies, clears, then whatever is experienced now will be worth it.


    The imagery used to describe the Mother of the Matrix is not real. There is no actual Shelob "spider" waiting in her snare to entrap us, but the idea is real and cosmic strings and strands are being spun all around us. Creatures like "Shelob" are an artistic device, an attempt to visualise the astral. It's also connected to karma, so we also help to spin the web ourselves by our thoughts and actions.



  13. Sleepy Lagoon (Eric Coates) - This song originally existed as a piece of light orchestral music in the style of a French waltz serenade with the title, "By the Sleepy lagoon". In 1940, ten years later, lyrics were added with Coates's approval by Jack Lawrence. Coates is reported to have said to Lawrence, “You have set the words to my music so cleverly that one would never suspect that the music had been written first!"


    In 1942, as Britain was in the midst of World War II, Coates's original orchestral version was chosen (with added seagulls) to introduce the BBC Home Service radio series "Desert Island Discs" that's still going to this day, on Radio 4.
