News from the World

Post by Smaragd »

I though we had such a topic already in the English side too but it doesn't seem to be so.

NASA reported of the Phoenix galaxy clusters rare abilities to give birth to a large number of stars. As we're going through the Secret Doctrine with lodge Phanes and friends we've come to think of our own galaxys challenges and settings. The special settings the Phoenix galaxy cluster operates with reminded me of similar way of looking the celestial bodies and what sort of challenges there are outside our own star system. It is also interesting to me to think of the laws or causal chains by which a certain spatial location has come to be the centers of different sort of galaxies and galaxy clusters. Being eager to find universal answers I felt a bit disappointed when first time reading the Secret Doctrine to mainly handle things of our own star system, but as location and subjects wrapped in objects there aren't meaningless, it seems we need to take them all in to account.

Oh, wow. Certainly does make me think of The Great Breath! Thanks for sharing. It will forever blow me away that all found in the macrocosm is reflected in the microcosm. How vast and wonderful this journey can be! Even if at times it's pretty frustrating and challenging.

We will get to the place where even this baffling piece of literature starts making sense, I'm sure! When is another question. The length of some of those cosmic cycles are atleast as baffling!

I follow The World-Wide Religious News. You can pick your theme, region and religion if you want to narrow it down (For example, under themes you can find "occult", so you can follow global news on occultism).

Or you can just read the recent headlines from the front page:
https://wwrn.org/


Here is the first point from their mission statement, which nicely sums up the intention behind the WWRN's service:

World-Wide Religious News is a non-profit service to provide the international academic and legal community (as well as various government agencies) with up to date religious news from around the world. WWRN was initiated with the goal of promoting religious freedom and tolerance.
