Lightbulb Amo rite



In the earliest Sumerian sources, beginning about 2400 BC, the land of the Amorites ("the Mar.tu land") is associated not with Mesopotamia but with lands immediately to the West, including what is now modern Syria and Canaan. They appear as nomadic people in the Mesopotamian sources, and they are especially connected with the mountainous region of Jebel Bishri in Syria called the "mountain of the Amorites".
Quote:
The 'Amorite' race appeared in the area of the Middle Euphrates, about the time of Abraham (c.1900 B.C. while it should be noted that the city of Tyre was founded in 2,750 B.C.) they had gained control of the whole of Babylonia. Prof. R. B. Dixon, in his Racial History of Man (1923), p. 172, mentions that in the period 2500 B.C. - 1500 B.C. the population of Palestine consisted primarily of 'Mediterranean' and 'Caspian' peoples.

Mound Cemetery (Marietta, Ohio)...

Quote:
The origin and disappearance of the prehistoric Moundbuilders has long been shrouded in mystery. “Conus” is the burial place of chieftains. The mounds and earthworks were constructed between 800 B.C. and 700 A.D. These early inhabitants were the first farmers and artisans in the Ohio Valley and Marietta was the site of a Moundbuilders city.

It was stated at the Conference that “more officers of the Revolution are buried in the Old Mound Cemetery, Marietta, than at any other place in the United States.”

There are also serpent effigies located in Scotland and Ontario that are very similar.

Exclamation Living in a Box

Quote:
“This world is a great wiggle-effect. The clouds are wiggling. The waters are wiggling. The clouds are wiggling, bouncing. People- but people are always trying to straighten things out. You see we live in a rectangular box, all the time; everything is straightened out. Wherever you look around in nature you find things often straightened out. They’re always trying to put things in boxes. Those boxes are classified. Words are made from some boxes. But the real world is wiggly, if you can believe it. Now when you have a wiggle like a cloud, how much wiggle is a wiggle? Well you have to draw the line somewhere, so people come to sorts of agreements about, ah, how much wiggle is a wiggle, that is to say a thing. One wiggle- always reduce one wiggle to a sub wiggles. Or see it as a subordinate wiggle of a bigger wiggle. But there’s no fixed rule about it.”

When did our reality become so boxed in? We strive to live in boxes, sleep on boxes, talk to one another through boxes, go from one place to the other in moving boxes, spend our days watching ‘life’ through boxes by clicking boxes, show our appreciation by giving things in little boxes and finally say ‘good bye’ by placing our loved ones in boxes.

Exclamation Square of Pegasus

Enki is a god in Sumerian mythology, later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology. He was originally patron god of the city of Eridu, but later the influence of his cult spread throughout Mesopotamia and to the Canaanites, Hittites and Hurrians. He was the deity of crafts (gašam); mischief; water, seawater, lakewater (a, aba, ab), intelligence (gestú, literally "ear") and creation (Nudimmud: nu, likeness, dim mud, make bear). He was associated with the southern band of constellations called stars of Ea, but also with the constellation AŠ-IKU, the Field (Square of Pegasus). Beginning around the second millennium BCE, he was sometimes referred to in writing by the numeric ideogram for "40," occasionally referred to as his "sacred number."
Quote:
Eau may refer to Water, as in eau de Cologne, eau Creole, eau de parfum and eau de toilette,River Eau, a tributary of the River Trent in Lincolnshire, England,Eau Rouge, a 15 km long stream in the Belgian province of Liège,Several cases such as Bourne Eau, in Lincolnshire and The Fens where 'eau' is the word used for 'river'
His image is a double-helix snake, or the Caduceus, very similar to the Rod of Asclepius used to symbolize medicine. He is often shown with the horned crown of divinity dressed in the skin of a carp.His symbols included a goat and a fish, which later combined into a single beast, the goat Capricorn, recognised as the Zodiacal constellation Capricornus. He was accompanied by an attendant Isimud. He was also associated with the planet Mercury in the Sumerian astrological system...


Quote:
Enki and the Making of Man,Enki then advises that they create a servant of the Gods, humankind, out of clay and blood. Against Enki's wish the Gods decide to slay Kingu, and Enki finally consents to use Kingu's blood to make the first human, with whom Enki always later has a close relationship, the first of the seven sages, seven wise men or "Abgallu" (*Ab = water, *Gal = great, *Lu = Man), also known as Adapa. Enki assembles a team of divinities to help him, creating a host of "good and princely fashioners".

Adapa, the first man fashioned, later goes and acts as the advisor to the King of Eridu, when in the Sumerian Kinglist, the "Me" of "kingship descends on Eridu".

According to Sumerian mythology, Enki also assisted humanity to survive the Deluge designed to kill them. In the later Legend of Atrahasis, Enlil, the king of the gods, sets out to eliminate humanity, whose NOISE is disturbing his rest.
In ancient Mesopotamia, the turtle was associated with the god Ea and was used on kudurrus as a symbol of Ea. The heron and the turtle is an Ancient Sumerian story that has survived to this day...Kudurru was a type of stone document used as boundary stones and as records of land grants to vassals by the Kassites in ancient Babylonia between the 16th and 12th centuries BCE...In China the traditional Chinese character symbolizing the turtle (龜) shows a head like that of a snake at the top, to the middle left of the paws, to the middle right of the shell, and at the bottom of the tail. According to the "Book of ceremonies", the single-horned rhino, phoenix, tortoise, and dragon are the four entities that possess spirit...In Hindu mythology the world is thought to rest on the backs of four elephants who stand on the shell of a turtle. In Hinduism, Akupara is a tortoise who carries the world on his back, upholding the Earth and the sea.Various Native American groups use the term "Great Turtle Island" as an alternate term for America,In the Tahitian islands, the tortoise is the shadow of the gods and the lord of the oceans. In a story from Admiralty Island, people are born from eggs laid by the World Turtle. There are many similar creation stories throughout Polynesia...In Hindu astronomy, the Great Square of Pegasus contained the 26th and 27th lunar mansions.Pegasus's head is made up of the stars of Lacerta the lizard... More specifically, it represented a bedstead that was a resting place for the Moon.51 Pegasi, a star in this constellation, is the first Sun-like star known to have an extrasolar planet...

In the history of education of the deaf,Gerolamo Cardano said that deaf people were capable of using their minds, argued for the importance of teaching them, and was one of the first to state that deaf people could learn to read and write without learning how to speak first...

Lightbulb Dolphin Square

Dolphin Square is a block of private apartments and business complex built near the River Thames at Pimlico in London, between 1935 and 1937. At one time, the huge development was home to more than 70 MPs, and at least 10 lords. At the time of their construction the development was billed, according to Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as the "largest self-contained block of flats in Europe" and, to an extent, their design has been a model for later municipal developments..
Accommodation is provided in 13 'houses' each named after a famous navigator or admiral. At the south (Thames) side of the Square the houses are Grenville, Drake, Raleigh and Hawkins. Moving from the river up the west side, there are Nelson, Howard, Beatty, and Duncan. An hotel and administration offices, situated at the north side of the Square, is in Dolphin House, previously known as Rodney. Heading south from the hotel there is Keyes, Hood, Collingwood and Frobisher...
The estate contains a swimming pool, bar, brasserie , gymnasium, and shopping arcade. In the basement a launderette and car park. A tennis court and croquet lawn overlook the River Thames. Until 21 January 1970, London Transport bus route 134 showed PIMLICO Dolphin Square as a destination and actually terminated in Chichester Street.It provided a base for the Free French during World War II and number 308 Hood House was used by MI5 section B5 responsible for infiltrating agents into potentially subversive groups from 1924 to 1946

I wonder what the attraction can be? Must be the food. Yes, definitely the food...A little drudgery is good for wives, perhaps. The Dolphin lady may bee spoiled'

Exclamation The Four Square Laundry

Quote:
Lt. Colonel, Welsh Guards Military Intelligence

There was a curious atmosphere prevailing at the time which we have subsequently described as a slightly piratical atmosphere, and I think that that’s not a bad description actually.

TAYLOR: Piratical?

LT.COL: Piratical. I mean there were gaps to be filled and there was no point in sitting back in an ivory tower of any sort and not doing something about it.

TAYLOR: Alan joined the MRF in 1972. The identities of undercover agents in this series are not revealed to protect their personal security.

What did you understand you were being recruited for and to do?

ALAN: I understood that the organisation was a plain clothes military unit which took a rather more robust view of counter terrorist operations.

TAYLOR: What would that rather more robust view entail?

ALAN: Actively seeking out the enemy to do something that was positive to sort the terrorists out once and for all.

TAYLOR: The most novel application of these early piratical ventures was a special laundry service run by the army. The van, that became a familiar sight in Republican areas, was used to spy on the enemy. The enterprise was known as ‘The Four Square Laundry’.

How did the laundry operate?

General Staff Officer HQ, Northern Ireland

Well they operated from a van and collected laundry from certain estates, advertised their wares, as it were, and collected laundry which was then, I presume, checked over for explosives and forensically and then cleaned and returned.

Sir Anthony Farrar-Hockley Commander Land Forces, N.I. 1970-71

The Four Square Laundry was one means of going in to get information about who was doing what in areas without them knowing we were observing it.

TAYLOR: The laundry’s cover was finally blown when the IRA interrogated one of its members it suspected of working for the Brits. He spilled the beans and the IRA planned its attack. It was carried out by gunmen from the unit commanded by Brendan Hughes, known as ‘Darkie’.

How was the Four Square Laundry attacked?

Brendan Hughes
Former IRA Commander, Belfast

Two men got out of the car. The car was parked waiting on the van to come. The Driver was there and the driver was shot, and the woman who was collecting the laundry round the doors ran into the house and the people in the house, believing that the van was being attacked by Loyalists, helped the woman get away.. the undercover agent get away.

LT.COL: It was an attempt which partly worked and partly failed with disastrous consequences which we all know. But I suspect, in the way of these things, is rather like the sort of.. you know, the first parachute, somebody’s got to have the notion of a parachute, jump out of an aeroplane and be killed before somebody says well I think we’ve got to design a better parachute.

HUGHES: To me it was a very, very amateurish and very badly run military operation.

Exclamation Andrew & Charlotte Squared



SamCam’s even got that cool, little dolphin tattoo peeking from her shoes...
Charlotte Square is a city square in Edinburgh, Scotland, part of the New Town, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. James Syme, the surgeon, lived at No.9 and his son-in-law Joseph Lister, lived there from 1870-1877.

Lightbulb Soldiers and Sailors

Niagara Square is a public square located at the intersections of Delaware Avenue, Court Street, Genesee Street, and Niagara Street in Buffalo, New York. It is the central hub of Joseph Ellicott's original radial street pattern that he designed in 1804 for the then village of New Amsterdam. It continues to be the nexus of downtown Buffalo.
Within the center of the modern square is a large monument commemorating the assassination of President McKinley, who was assassinated in Buffalo during the Pan-American Exposition of 1901...



Quote:
Then-Mayor of Buffalo Grover Cleveland laid the cornerstone of Keller's 85-foot (25.9 m) granite-shaft Soldiers and Sailors monument in the center of the square on July 4, 1882 and returned as New York Governor to dedicate the monument July 4, 1884. When the cornerstone was laid with military pomp and Masonic ritual, Cleveland spoke, and a time capsule was sealed away. In addition, Brigadier General Stewart Woodford made remarks at the first ceremony. Woodford was among several notable people who attended the dedication, including Pennsylvania Governor John Hartranft and Brigadier General William Findlay Rogers. Columns of Union Army veterans marched down Main Street to celebrate the day...The square is located three blocks east of Niagara Square and is the second most important space in downtown Buffalo. In 2003, Lafayette Square became the site of the first free municipal wifi hotspot in the city.On January 16, 1981, there were a set of demonstrations and counter-demonstrations on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at Lafayette Square, Niagara Square and nearby areas by the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Party of America and opposing groups.
The parallel 42° north forms most of the New York-Pennsylvania border, although due to imperfect surveying in 1785–1786, this boundary wanders around on both sides of the true parallel. The area around the parallel in this region is known as the Twin Tiers...

Exclamation Sandman Square

Central Square is known for its wide variety of ethnic restaurants, churches, bars, and live music and theatre venues. It is gentrifying rapidly, and a number of upscale restaurants have opened in the Square. Many startups, including pharmaceutical, videogame and Internet companies, have moved research and office operations into the Square to take advantage of the proximity to MIT, Boston medical resources and relatively low costs...Central Square is the seat of government in Cambridge - Cambridge City Hall, and the main branch of the Cambridge Post Office are located in this area,it completed a relocation to a new facility at 125 Sixth Street, near Kendall Square...


Quote:
This square is right outside the Middle East, a music club/restaurant frequented by Sandman. Central Square is also the original home of actor Ben Affleck,Matt Damon, and, since 1927, the Necco factory ("NECCO Candy Factory"), which recently relocated to Revere, Massachusetts. The old Necco factory building in Cambridge is now used for labs by Novartis International AG is a Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company based in Basel, Switzerland, ranking number two in sales (46.806 billion US$) among the world-wide industry in 2010...
Sandman collapsed on stage on July 3, 1999 at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Latium, Italy while performing with Morphine. His death, at the age of 46, was as a result of a heart attack. His death has been attributed to cigarettes, heavy stress and the temperature of over 100 degrees on the night of his death...Latium is the region of central western Italy in which the city of Rome was founded and grew to be the capital city of the Roman Empire.In 1297 the Sciarrillo di Colonna family, who had owned Praeneste (by then called Palestrina) from the eleventh century as a fief, revolted from the pope. In the following year the town was taken by Papal forces, razed to the ground and salted by order of Pope Boniface VIII. In 1437 the rebuilt city was captured by the Papal general Giovanni Vitelleschi and once more utterly destroyed at the command of Pope Eugenius IV. Under the Empire the cool breezes of Praeneste made it a favorite summer resort of wealthy Romans, whose villas studded the neighborhood, though they ridiculed the language and the rough manners of the native inhabitants.It was rebuilt once more and fortified by Stefano Colonna in 1448. It was again sacked in 1527, and occupied by the Duke of Alba in 1556. In 1630 it passed by purchase into the Barberini family. It is likely the transfer was included as one of the conditions of the marriage of Taddeo Barberini and Anna Colonna.Praeneste was chiefly famed for its Temple of Fortuna Primigenia connected with the oracle known as the Praenestine lots (sortes praenestinae)...
Quote:
The oldest portion of the primitive sanctuary was situated on the terrace just above the lowest one, in a grotto in the natural rock where there was a spring that developed into a well. As the archaic shrine was elaborated from the 2nd century BC, it was given a coloured mosaic pavement representing a seascape: a temple of Poseidon on the shore, with fish of all kinds swimming in the sea...The goddess Fortuna went by the name of Primigenia ("First Bearer"), she was represented suckling two babes, as in the Christian representation of Charity, said to be Jupiter and Juno, and she was especially worshipped by matrons

Exclamation There is No Time

Formerly Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building – now called One Times Square – site of the annual ball drop on New Year's Eve.The northern triangle of Times Square is technically Duffy Square, dedicated in 1937 to Chaplain Francis P. Duffy of New York City's "Fighting 69th" Infantry Regiment; a memorial to Duffy is located there, along with a statue of George M. Cohan, and the TKTS discount theatre tickets booth...
Times Square is a major commercial intersection in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square – iconified as "The Crossroads of the World" and the "The Great White Way" – is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. According to Travel + Leisure magazine's October 2011 survey, Times Square is the world's most visited tourist attraction, bringing in over 39 million visitors annually...In February 2011, Times Square became smoke free as New York extended the outdoors smoking ban to the area. The measure fines any person driving a polluting vehicle within the area....



One Astor Plaza is a 745 ft (227 m) high skyscraper in Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Completed in 1972, the building is 54 stories tall and was designed by Der Scutt of Ely J. Kahn & Jacobs...
On May 1, 2010, Times Square was evacuated from 43rd to 46th Street following the discovery of a car bomb. It was found to be a failed bombing.In 2002, New York City's mayor, Rudy Giuliani, gave the oath of office to the city's next mayor, Michael Bloomberg, at Times Square after midnight on January 1 as part of the 2001–2002 New Year's celebration. Approximately 500,000 revelers attended.

Arrow Battle of George Square

The "Battle of George Square", also known as "Bloody Friday" and "Black Friday", was one of the most intense riots in the history of Glasgow; it took place on Friday, 31 January 1919. The dispute revolved around a campaign for shorter working hours, backed by widespread strike action. Clashes between the City of Glasgow Police and protesters broke out, leading to the British government sending soldiers and tanks to the city to prevent any further gatherings due to their fear of a Bolshevist uprising. It was described as a "social revolution" by supporters, as had happened the previous year in the 1917 Russian Revolution, and was occurring in Germany and in the Austro-Hungarian Empire while the 'Forty Hours' strike unfolded...
Before the First World War, the standardworking week was 54 hours. National negotiations had established a 47-hour working week for men in the shipbuilding and engineering trades, to be introduced in 1919. A Joint Committee of shop stewards, members of the Scottish TUC and Clyde Workers' Committee however proposed a campaign to limit working-hours to 30 per week, which was altered to 40 per week after the Glasgow Trades Council became involved...

Quote:
A strikers' meeting was called for Monday, 27 January, and more than 3000 workers gathered at the St. Andrew's Halls; 40,000 Glasgow workers came out on strike that same day. By Friday 31 January, the number had swollen to "upwards of 60,000".A 4.5 inch Howitzer was positioned at the City Chambers, the cattle market was transformed into a tank depot, Lewis Guns were posted on the top of the North British Hotel and the General Post Office, armed troops stood sentry outside power stations, docks and patrolled the streets. They were deployed for a week, to deter any further gatherings...Manny Shinwell, William Gallacher and David Kirkwood were jailed for several months. A 47-hour week was eventually agreed with the trade unions involved. In the General Election of 1922, Scotland elected 29 Labour MPs, including the 40 Hour Strike organisers and Independent Labour Party members Manny Shinwell and David Kirkwood. The 1923 General Election eventually saw the first Labour government come to power under Ramsay MacDonald. The region's socialist sympathies earned it the epithet of Red Clydeside...In 1923 the regimental title was expanded to the Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regiment)...

Arrow HeX Marks Thy Square



An x mark (also known as a cross, x, ex, exmark or into mark) is a mark (x, ×, X, ✕, ☓, ✖, ✗, ✘, etc.) used to indicate the concept of negation (for example "no, this has not been verified" or "no, I don't agree") as well as affirmation (for example in election ballot papers or in x marks the spot). It is often used opposite the tick or check mark (or the O mark used in Japan.)...

The Freemasons controlled the council planning committee and the council itself. Decisions would be made in the lodge during the day by Freemasons from 'opposing' parties and they would play out a farce of a public 'debate' at the council meeting in the evening before voting for what had been agreed at the lodge...
