Quote of the Day:

One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything rightly, until he knows that every day is Doomsday.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. in todays news:
    Green Lion was already thought of by alchemists:

    bionic mannequins: let’s just make them more disturbing!

    Yeti’s killing a human: one of them is also grabbing a certain “appendage” of the horse above them and it’s not the leg.

    Animals Afterlife: I myself believe in reincarnation, especially with animals since they can not commit sin nor grace. That being said I have had and heard many an experience of animal spirits who haunt places or are still protecting their owners after they die. Here’s one for the road:

    “Hallo, Oooze–it’s a lovely Oooze…” This cryptic but affectionate-sounding remark was irrelevantly addressed by David to the inn cat, which had appeared on the scene, and was rubbing itself against his legs.
    “Our poor cat has gone west, alas…” I said. David had been very fond of it, and often used to pet it when he came to see us.
    “I was afraid it must have,” he replied sympathetically, “I saw its little astral vehicle the other night.”
    “Then it’s not true that dogs and cats just return to the group-soul when they die?” said Viola.
    “Not if you’ve been really fond of them. Then you individualize them through love, and greatly hasten on their evolution. Far more pets than you’d think get individualized. As a matter of fact, it was in the Master’s garden that I’ve seen your cat since it’s been dead.”
    “How delightful for the cat, and how charming of the Master!” I exclaimed laughing, but nevertheless touched.
    “It had a strong light round its head–showing it had been individualized–and looked lighter in colour than it did when alive,” David went on. “As for dogs, I once saw a huge Airedale who’d been dead for years go for a small Dark who was trying to attack the mistress he’d been devoted to, and give him ever such a biff.”
    “Well, I’m jolly glad to think the animals we’ve loved still remain individuals!” Viola declared; “I should hate to think of them absorbed into something so vague as a group soul…. And now if you like, I’m ready for a walk.” ~The Initiate in the Dark Cycle, Cyril Scott
