    The people in between like myself, need our own flag, I would love to call rangatiratanga my own, but recognise the symbol it is now.
    It brings me both joy and sadness when I ponder these things.

    You know I can fully appreciate the pulling of to and fro...I don't really think the 'heart' of any of these issues is any different anywhere. One thing different about the Maori situation is that they seem to be in a position of greater strength than many are in other lands. It seems that even the 'bad' side of NZ peoples are much more 'enlightened' than what we would find in the U.S. According to some if not many historians the biggest reason that it is different here/there/U.S is the legacy of the Slavery and the Civil War. It doesn't make the divided people 'special', it merely makes the situation 'different' and perhaps more compelling in the depths of division. The end result is hate, of course, and the biggest thorn in my mind.

    This is cosmic.

    Joe Rogan was talking about black holes and multiple galaxies. His guest mentioned the theory of black holes leading to other universes.

    Then, a bit later Joe was wondering how everything could start from a singularity, smaller than a pinpoint.


    How about if that singularity emerged from a Black Hole?

    I'll up you one... Every black hole is a singularity, so what if the whole universe is a black hole of which the event horizon is still expanding at an accelerating rate? Or maybe the universe only appears to be expanding at an accelerating rate because of the time dilation that we're subjected to?

    But then again, recognizing that animals are superior to us in many ways takes an open mind, and unfortunately, this is a rare commodity. Most people simply store knowledge such as that of animals' magnificence in the disposable sections of their memory and continue living their lives as the arrogant egos they are.

    There is a pond at my son's high school. In the spring at one end you can see circle after circle that the fish make for mating. They're not complex like the one in this video but they are very nicely formed and circular.

He mentioned all the plastic in the Ocean on one of these documentaries...and now everybody are engaged in cleaning up plastic, banning plastic, reducing plastic etc. It's a big deal at the moment. Thank goodness!

    Aragorn...you are so right...if people could just look toward the planet and all that is natural...respect will follow!

    Thanks for posting enjoy being.

    It's amazing how he, in association with these nature shows has raised such awareness. They are beautifully done. Prior to this series the best had been Nature, imo. The one about the African rift blew my mind.
