Pod 3, ‘being amazed’. What surprises me constantly is that there is always something new and incredible that I learn daily that completely astounds me. Youtube probably being the biggest contributor to this.

Today we look at the amazing life of ants and compare their lifestyles to human societies. Farming, building/architecture, ventilation, strength, food etc. When we begin to compare, we see how vastly superior in many aspects ants are.

Ants- Natures secret power : link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-gIx7LXcQM

The whole program is incredible, but if you can only spare 5 mins, check from 47 mins, the amasing underground world.

We then speak about the Pyramids and the vaca we took to Cairo and Sharm. Check out John Anthony West online for hi s theories on the Sphynx being at least 10k years old!    http://www.jawest.net/

Renaissance podcast 2 with G and J

Continuing smoothly with surprisingly good sound quality given the low tech approach to the podcasts. #2 we celebrate the end of the Mayan calendar by discussing related topics including ancient psychedelic traditions of Ayahuasca.  An Ayahuasca trip is something we intend to do ourselfs one day and it really can be a great self learning event.  desc below

Ayahuasca (ayawaska pronounced [ajaˈwaska] in the Quechua language) is a brew of various psychoactive infusions or decoctionsprepared with the Banisteriopsis caapi vine. It is usually mixed with the leaves of dimethyltryptamine (DMT)-containing species of shrubs from the genus Psychotria. The brew, first described academically in the early 1950s by Harvard ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes, who found it employed for divinatory and healing purposes by the native peoples of Amazonian Peru, is known by a number of different names (see below). It has been reported that some effects can be had from consuming the caapi vine alone, but that DMT-containing plants (such as Psychotria) remain inactive when drunk as a brew without a source of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as B. caapi. How indigenous peoples discovered the synergistic properties of the plants used in the ayahuasca brew remains unclear. While many indigenous Amazonian people say they received the instructions directly from plants and plant spirits, researchers have devised a number of alternative theories to explain its discovery.[1]

G and J podcast pilot - dawn of a new era 12/12/12

December 13, 2012

We kick the podcast off with  introductions.  Not too detailed as we hope to divulge a bit more as we progress through the sessions.

I speak about the influence of other podcasters that have greatly influenced me to start this.  I also explain how this has had an  influence on my life.

With the help of J, we hope to bring news to our listeners from our perspective based on all the great stuff we learn and hear about in our lives and online.   stories that the central media do not cover, or cover in such a way that is not a try representation of what is really going on.  I guess thats what we really want to know, the truth or as close to it as possible.

Listen in and as we grow, the fluency will get better, we wil have different friends and guests to add some colour and fun.

Let's do this.
