I don’t necessarily agree with everything presented but this video does bring up interesting questions. The geometrical coincidences alone make an interesting case on what some of the ancient civilizations knew that we don’t. Watch and make your own conclusions.
Following is a speech given by Steve Jobs. Worth reading to understand important things in life.
I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

How often do we challenge the realty of things and above all reality of our five senses. After all what we see, hear and feel is indirect because it is not our eyes that sees nor our ears that hear neither our hands that touch. Its is our brain that sees, hears and touches as the electrical signals travel from our organs to brain where it gets interpreted and converted into sight and sound yet, our brain never interacts with the world on physical level. So when we say that we see through our eyes, it is more metaphoric than real if we really understand how it all works. Science has found ways to manipulate this fact in many ways. This is a complex subject that requires a detailed article but for now watch the following video and question yourself that if science has progressed to this level then how could we differentiate between reality and augmented reality? More crazier questions such as when we see UFO in the sky what are we really seeing or the conspiracy theory that the plane that hit the twin towers, was not really a plane. Could there be any reality to it? Remember a technology like the one in this video is only made public when it has been replaced by much superior technology.
If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.

Woman Who Hasn’t Used Money Or Credit in 15 Years
Heidemarie Schwermer, a 69-year-old woman from Germany, gave up using money 15 years ago and says she’s been much happier ever since.
Heidemarie’s incredible story began 22 years ago, when she, a middle-aged secondary school teacher emerging from a difficult marriage, took her two children and moved to the city of Dortmund, in Germany’s Ruhr area. One of the first things she noticed was the large number of homeless people, and this shocked her so much that she decided to actually do something about it. She had always believed the homeless didn’t need actual money to be accepted back into society, only a chance to empower themselves by making themselves useful, so she opened a Tauschring (swap shop), called “Gib und Nimm” (Give and Take).
