In his wisdom of the local and its humans (his home), an acquaintance with all of the individuals involved, and extremely widespread visits to the Hansell Farm, not anything has but happened to shake his religion within the unimpeachable facts of a decent discovery. but may still any clean gentle be dropped at undergo upon the topic, even though at variance with this opinion, it will likely be welcomed. the looks in the US of a carving of the furry colossal, most likely the paintings of our aborigines, if now not a shock to scholars of archaeology, would definitely be no much less attention-grabbing than the French discoveries of a few two decades in the past; whereas the prepared connection of the paintings with the Indian of relatively fresh instances, the looks of human figures within the carving, and of many symbols which appear relating to hugely very important branches of archaeological research, may wake up a extra basic and enthusiastic curiosity within the Stone, than has been felt for the other prehistoric illustration of the nice elephant.

L’uomo, che è stato creato dentro a un universo multidimensionale, è un essere in grado di vivere contemporaneamente in un mondo naturale pur essendo egli spirituale, cioè fatto, al pace stesso, di energia e materia. È in keeping with mezzo della fede e della rigenerazione che si può riuscire a prendere coscienza delle realtà invisibili, altrimenti ignote, e a disporsi in step with vedere oltre los angeles cortina del velo, andando laddove c’è tanto di più di quello che si possa persino soltanto immaginare. Essendo l’energia sempre presente in ogni luogo e pace, essa si comporta diversamente dalle leggi fisiche finora apprese e, se esclusa, dà origine advert un vuoto di sapere fondamentale che erode una parte della conoscenza del mondo reale che l’uomo possiede o crede di possedere. Il sangue benedetto dell’agnello di Dio è rimasto sulla terra, nella nostra dimensione, e invocandolo ci colleghiamo a lui in line with riceverlo dentro di noi.
