Terence McKenna and Gregory Stock speak about the epic transition we face in the very near future called the Singularity.

This shift will be the result of the inevitable culmination of infinite technological progress and the emergence of completely new states of connectedness. Once the Singularity happens, infinite growth is reached. Within a very short amount of time (as a result of this exponential growth), we will take our first steps towards a new age as an entirely new entity.

We will then go on to saturate the entire physical universe with our newly born super-intelligence, or we will gain the ability to actually leave the 3-Dimensional universe and move to higher (or simply other) states of being.

Could ‘Goldilocks’ planet be just right for life?

WASHINGTON – Astronomers say they have for the first time spotted a planet beyond our own in what is sometimes called the Goldilocks zone for life: Not too hot, not too cold. Juuuust right.

Not too far from its star, not too close. So it could contain liquid water. The planet itself is neither too big nor too small for the proper surface, gravity and atmosphere.

It’s just right. Just like Earth.

“This really is the first Goldilocks planet,” said co-discoverer R. Paul Butler of the Carnegie Institution of Washington.

The star known as Gliese 581 is utterly unremarkable in just about every way you can imagine. It’s a red dwarf, the most common type of star in the Milky Way, weighing in at about a third of the mass of the sun. At 20 light years or so away, it’s relatively nearby, but not close enough to set any records (it’s the 117th closest star to Earth, for what that’s worth). You can’t even see it without a telescope, so while it lies in the direction of Libra, it isn’t one of the shining dots you’d connect to form the constellation. It’s no wonder that the star’s name lacks even a whiff of mystery or romance.

But Gliese 581 does have one distinction — and that’s enough to make it the focus of intense scientific attention. At last count, astronomers had identified more than 400 planets orbiting stars beyond the sun, and Gliese 581 was host to no fewer than four of them — the most populous solar system we know of, aside from our own. That alone would make the star intriguing. But on Wednesday, a team of astronomers announced that it had found two more planets circling the star, bringing the total to six. And one of them, assigned the name Gliese 581g, may be of truly historic significance. (See TIME’s illustrated history of Earth.)

For one thing, the planet is only about three or four times as massive as our home world, meaning it probably has a solid surface just like Earth. Much more important, it sits smack in the middle of the so-called habitable zone, orbiting at just the right distance from the star to let water remain liquid rather than freezing solid or boiling away. As far as we know, that’s a minimum requirement for the presence of life. For thousands of years, philosophers and scientists have wondered whether other Earths existed out in the cosmos. And since the first, very un-Earthlike extrasolar planet was discovered in 1995, astronomers have been inching closer to answering that question. Now they’ve evidently succeeded (although to be clear, there’s no way at this point to determine whether there is life on the new planet).

“We’re pretty excited about it,” admits Steve Vogt of the University of California at Santa Cruz, a member of the team, in a masterpiece of understatement. “I think this is what everyone’s been after for the past 15 years.” (See the top 50 space moments since Sputnik.)

Planetary scientist James Kasting of Penn State University, who wasn’t involved with the discovery, agrees. “I think they’ve scooped the Kepler people,” he says, referring to the telescope that launched into space early last year on a mission to determine how common Earthlike planets might be. The “Kepler people” have a number of candidate Earths in the can but are still working to confirm them. (See pictures of Earth from space.)

This site wants to emulate a Virtual Library, including information found on the Internet in connection with reports, news, treatises, studies, theories and findings made possible by a multitude of people and personalities (professors, teachers, scientists, researchers, experts in religion, politicians, philosophers, members of intelligence, etc.), who have been devoted for decades to informing the general public (most recently through the Internet) of “new information” and a new way of seeing and interpreting History, Sciences, Sociopolitics, Myths and Legends, Archeology and Astronomy.

These explorations bring more light to mystical and “religious” information than we have received through a dogmatic system of education.

Among the items found here some appear to contradict one another, some others apparently lack credibility, and most appear to be disconnected from each other, as belonging to “different groups” such as Neo-Archeology, Neo-Astronomy, Parascience (New Science), Mysticism, Genetics, Channeling, Sociopolitics and Exopolitics, Legends and Myths, gods and lesser gods, extraterrestrials and terrestrials very well known.

But we believe that by dividing into categories, we forget that ALL in the universe is interconnected, “separately UNIFIED,” that chance does not exist, but rather the existence of Causality becomes more clear and evident with every day that passes.

We have incorporated many different topics and articles related to “the (re)discovery of our True Story”:

Anyway… articles should be sought with patience and determination within the Library Pleiades website, or elsewhere.

When language and math become unable to reflect emotions and logic, images, scents and other (extra) sensory sensations, art may become a means of communication. The human mind can travel faster and further than any machine ever built. Communication – the exchange of information – is life. The observable part of which takes place in three dimensions and linear time, while intuitive dreams occur in hyperspace where there is space nor time.

Sometimes words do not do the job of expressing efficiently.
