The American Melting Pot Myth


Most myths have some element of truth in them. The 'melting pot' that media of all sorts (which includes our propaganda in law and education) tell us became America, is another of the half-truths or superficial observations which deserves a little study if we are to accept the deeper potential meaning in it.

Family, Incest, and Law


Family Values in Ancient Times:Many people of the present make some very grave and disturbing assumptions about prior unethical behaviour by humans.

The Agwagwa Festival: A Ghanaian Traditional Cultural Event for Unearthing Young Talents
The Agwagwa Festival is commemorated by the people of Kwahu Obemeng in the Eastern Region of Ghana. It has a long celebration record of hundred and twenty-five years! The whole concept of the event originated from the ingenuity of their early forebears to improvise a pushcart that could travel within the spaces in cocoa farms, transporting coca farmers from one spot to the other in their farms. It was also used by the young ones as a medium for entertainment while riding them after a stressful farming day. The name of the festival 'Agwagwa' was gotten from the sound of the traditional improvised pushcart when it was moved.

Emperor Caligula of Rome and His Horse Igcitatus
There are many weird tales that interest us and one of them is about Caligula the Roman emperor. I first read about Caligula while in college and the man interested me as a maverick emperor and sometimes wonder whether he was sane. Maybe he was and was just like Nero, another emperor who played the fiddle while he had ordered the burning of Rome.

Indigenous People Weaving Culture in Cambodia
Textile and styles of Bunong's weaving culture have had a long period of time, and it has been left behind by ancient ancestors, and this weaving and style are part of the identity of the culture and traditions of the Bunong indigenous people as well as the culture of Cambodian nationalism. This weaving is also important to help improve the livelihood of Bunong ethnic minority because it can help them to earn some money after they return from their farming. In particular, the farming of Cambodian Bunong Indigenous People is currently facing difficulties due to climate change and lack of agricultural techniques, which have resulted in poor yields and inadequate income for domestic supplies.

Understanding Rosicrucian Cultural Movement
Rosicrucianism can be understood as a cultural movement that arose within Europe back in the 17th century. This was after several texts were published purporting to announce the existence of an unknown esoteric order making seeking the knowledge so attractive to many people. Allegedly, the doctrine is built on some esoteric truths that happened in the past, but the truths remain concealed from man of an average caliber. The doctrines are said to provide greater insight into the physical universe, the spiritual realm, and to nature. There are no manifestos that elaborate more extensively on this matter, but there is a clear combination of references to the mystical Christianity, Hermeticism, and Kabbalah.

Top 5 Interesting Facts About Louis XIV
Onlookers were said to have mocked and sneered as Louis XIV's funeral carriage passed through the streets of Versailles on a journey to his final burial ground. He would pass away just a few days short of his 77th birthday. He had led a spectacularly long life in a time of still very limited medical knowledge. His strong body would eventually die after it was half eaten with gangrene. But no matter how unpopular he was at that time, this figure has undoubtedly come to symbolize the French monarchy at it's very peak.

The Solitary Genius Often Has Difficulty Relating To Average People
Those with extremely high IQs often have trouble relating to average or slightly above average IQ humans, as they themselves are Human+ so to speak. It's hard to relate to folks that seem to use a different thought process or cannot seem to process thought at all, or only to a limited degree. Often the resident genius finds it odd that people know things or have knowledge or understanding of things that typically are not known to other average humans, it surprises the genius when they encounter such anomalies, even though they themselves are anomalies. Let's discuss this.

Ayn Rand's Objectivism, Empathy and Socialism
Being selfish is innate. Look at a little kid; "I want this," or that. It isn't until they learn that sharing has positives to it. So, that means it is nurture not nature. All species and biological life is selfish, it tries to do the least and get the most, conserve its energy, all life does that, it is simply the way of things? So is Ayn Rand's philosophy 'radical' no, I would submit to you that it is just obvious. It is observable, repeatable, and is a viable observation of life everything from plants with leaves trying to outdo other plants for sunlight, roots for water - bacteria feeds of the host or works with the host for its best interests - viruses same. See? It's natural and normal.

Define Poor In The USA
During this past 2016 Presidential Election we sure heard a lot about the poor. On the democrat side we heard from Bernie Sanders with quite the following, and again from the democrat mainstay Hillary Clinton as well. Apparently, none connected better with the poor and working middle class than Donald Trump. Even though this election is over the issues about poverty in the United States are from over. Still, I ask, how can we even have a legitimate discussion if we don't have a clear definition of what "poor" is in America? I mean the government has one definition - in 2015 that number for a single person was $12,082 annually, but is a number adequate?

King Louis's Fragrant Kingdom - The Perfumed Court of Obsession
Not to alarm you but what historians claim that our ancestors hesitated to bathe is quite true. Hygiene among the noble people was rare to find and thus we can only imagine what they would have smelled like. But trust me, it wasn't that bad after all because we are talking about King Louis's court and it was known for its extensive use of perfumes and everything that smelled pleasant. What few of us are aware of is that our nobility had a great fear of water. People back then had a common belief that diseases travelled through water. Now this is what led them to stay away from it and eventually prevented them from bathing. They thought that the less they bathed the healthier they would stay. They couldn't be further from the truth but we know that now, so let's come them some slack this time. This is the reason that during King Louis XIV's reign perfumes were used on a wide scale to scent every nook and corner of the castle and whatever possible.This actually happened and the air in and around the castle became so heavy with fragrance that the French court gradually came to
