Budda non ha detto tutto : che rivelare sul "Paradiso di lapislazzuli" ?

per Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Dottore in Geografia Economica, Ph. D
traduce dell'inglese ed adattato in italiano per sé
________________________________________


Ha la traduzione e l'addatamento in italiano di un articolo che habbiamo pubblicato su "Global Politics and Economics" il 5 gennaio 2016 ('Buddha didn't say everything : what's up with the "Paradise of lapis-lazuli" ?') .
Riguarda la preoccupazione maggiore di Budda, que non era affato la reincarnazione, ma la no-reincarnazione estrema ed il fatto di avere la fortuna di essere trasportato infine in un paradiso particolare al termine di questa vita terrestre, che denominava "il Paradiso di lapislazzuli" !
Pubblichiamo questa traduzione in occasione delle celebrazione del centenario delle apparizione della Vergine Maria, a Fatima (Portogallo) a partire del 13 maggio 1917.
Jacinta e Francisco Marto, due dei tri piccoli pastori di Fatima morti in basso età dell'influenza spagnola, hanno appena canonizzati, mentra il caso di Lucia aspetterà ancora un poco. Lucia de Jesus dos Santos (1907 - 2005) era l'ultima depositoria del famoso terzo segreto di Fatima, che cerca sempre disparatamente di scongiurare (Apocalisse riguardo Roma e la sua ragazza maggiore, per cio' che è conosciuto). Il primo segreto dava una visione precisa dell'inferno col suo mare di Fuoco che trasporta le anime perse ed i demoni, ed il secondo segreto avento munto ad una guerra più terrible che la prima guerra mondiale.

                                                       ******

Il vero oggetto di Budda (il Principe Indiano Cakyamuni), non è stato mai spesso la reincarnazione e le sue leggi illogiche.
Sé ha perso a più riprese dei discepoli quando gli fu chiesto se credeva nella reincarnazione : ad ogni volta, impiego' molto tempo a rispondere ...per dire finalmente "Non so" !
E questo è conosciuto molto dalla scuola di buddismo Chan in Cina, che è diventata il buddismo Zen in Giappone.
Alla sua epoca (Sesto secolo anteriore Gesù Cristo), il suo scopo era di raggiungere lo stato di "Samâdhi" (il risvelio nella no-identificazione).
Diventando un Budda, questo essere-a-dire un essere sveglio, potera raggiungere il "Nirvana" (l'estrema beatitudine).
Si sa tutto cio' grazie a su cugino Ananda, che era capace recitare tutti i suoi sermoni prendando in prestito la forma dai testi sacri.
Ma Ananda, non riusciva  a sapere quale era il contenuto preciso della seguente tappa.

Lo stato di Budda ha, difatti, qualche cosa a vedere col "Paradiso di lapislazzuli".
Questo paradiso è chiamato il "Paradiso dell' ovest", ed egli tira le sue radici in una molto vecchia credenza asiatica - una credenza antidiluviana.
Per i vecchi cinesi, questa credenza era legata per esempio, direttamente al Cielo. Ed i loro imperatori come "Figli del Cielo" conoscevano evidentemente questo segreto bene custodito.
In effetti, "il Paridiso dell'ovest" è popolato di milioni di Buddas che vivono di una felicità rifinisce dopo la loro morte terrestre.
Comunque sia, Cakyamuni in quanto budda sé, voleva oltro che trovare una via accettabile per sfuggire alle fatidiche sofferenze umane, abitualmente spiegate da una non verificabile reincarnazione.

Buddha non  ha descritto mai completamente il radioso paradiso di lapislazzuli, chiamato "il Paradiso Occidentale".
Ha detto appena que si deviva recitare una parola (un nome principiante per "Am...), per rendersi in questo luogo maraviglioso.
"Amithaba" è stato trattenuto spesso come potendo aiutare a questo risveglio, attraverso l'uso di un sesto senso se ne avete uno.
Ma c'è una più vecchia tradizione con una parola principiante dello stesso modo che è estremamente potente, si avete almeno sette sensi, e che permette di trasportarvi anche certamente laggiù ancora vivente. Ma vi occorre trovarlo col vostro settimo senso !
Cio' che si sa a proposito di questo luogo paradisiaco, questo è che è riempito di alberi che sono "alberi a gioielli" !
E' il paese dove i vostri sogni più pazzi possono realizzarsi, quasi instantaneamente.
L'esistenza di questa vita idilliaca, cinto di esseri e di creature meravigliose fu narrato prima, all'epoca antidiluviana. 







Bisogna sapere che "il Paradiso di lapislazzuli" resta chiuso definitivamente alle persone meschine ed a queste che si dilettano di malevolenza e di manipolazioni dileggiatrici. Per essere salvato, bisogna essere "salvabile".
Ed egli occorre fare attenzione al tempo che passa, perché la durata della vita umano è equivalente solamente ad alcuni minuti nell'unita divina di misura temporale, anche se sembra lunga o talvolta molto lunga su Terra.
Gesù sapeva anche cio', quando ha attirato l'attenzione delle persone sul riscatto divino nel regno dei cieli, la sua concezione che è differente della revisione che ne ha fatto il Santo Paolo che modifica il senso delle sue parole, dopo la sua crucifissione e la sua ascensione.

Entrare nel "Paradiso dell'ovest" è dunque al tempo stesso facile per le persone buone e sincere - che hanno saputo restare semplici -, ed impossible per gli altri se essi o esse danno o prova di grande falsità con gli attegiamenti sprezzanti impronte di grande ipocrisia - pure affigendo una morale manipolatrice e fin troppo dogmatica.
E' un luogo dove è accordata la gioventù eterna. La bellezza, l'amore et la pienezza regnano armoniosamente. Non vi avete non notato al contrario intorno a voi, il numero de persone che invechiano molto rapidamente, e talvolta molto troppo rapidamente rispetto alla loro età reale ?
Comenciare ad avere capelli bianchi a 19 anni per esempio, o una pelle troppo secca spessa un poco più tardi, n'è non anche molto normale.

Oltre il bisogno di un' estetista, fare sparire le sue polveri mentali, o recitare dei canti consacrati per ricevere l'aiuto di "Nam" o di "Nammu" non puo essere sufficiente. Occorre che le persone cambino profondamente nel loro spirito e nel loro cuore. Molto non hanno notato del resto che "Nammu" è un nome di dea, e non una semplice interiezione di inizio di canto.
Comunque sia è probabile che certi abbiamo reincarnato in effetti in animali e dunque non automaticamente in esseri umani, se si spinge al suo termine la teoria della trasmigrazione delle anime che esaltano. Ed in questo caso, "il Paradiso di lapislazzuli" puo essere solamente difficilmente accessibile.
Se riuscite a raggiungere al contrario questa magica contrada, cio` vuole dire che la sconcertante domanda della reincarnazione è diventata senza oggetto !

Just science-fiction XIX : the strange world of "Ama-o-Ama", Pleiadian way !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D
___________________________




In this new scenario of science-fiction, we are going to interrogate particularly the Fifth Dimension, Pleiadian way.
The blow-by-blow account of this tale for fun is, as usually, totally fictional of course.
We hope you will like entering in the strange universe of doubt.


                                                     *****


Let's be direct : if you want to enter the Fifth Dimension, you just need to repeat enough times a mantra, "Ama-o-Ama".
When you are in this new dimension, it can be too fast. You feel at the beginning everything is similar, and then similarly similar. But very quickly, you realize it's not the case : over suddenly, usually in matter of half a second, everything is different and unknown. And even simple things are disturbing to handle.


In the world of "Ama-o-Ama", your Earth has become an "Anti-Earth", which means a lot of things are incredibly operating in a reverse way, but not only. Your mind is here and overthere at the same time, and this is very confusing. Obvious things or behaviours are abruptly becoming completely illogical and weird. Nobody seems to listen to you or to understand you.


You try to think you are dreaming, or that it's a nightmare. You pinch yourself, but it hurts. You are clearly in the Fifth Dimension. And you don't know what to do.
"Ama-o-Ama" is the world of all possibles, which are...simultaneously possible.
So if you can keep cool, you realize it can help you to succeed where you usually fail.


In "Ama-o-Ama", nothing is binary. The binary language "0 - 1" doesn't operate. A thing can be true or wrong, but also true and wrong at the same time, or even both not true and not wrong, which can be extremely puzzling for the mind.
At the beginning, you would hope most likely to know which mantra can help you to get out.
As we are helpful, the suitable mantra is "IAXOT".






"Ama-o-Ama" is a different world from the one of "Alice in Wonderland", which is still operating on a binary way. As a matter of fact, the Fifth Dimension is working on a "quaternary mode", so not just a reverse one.


You may think "Ama-o-Ama" is very far from you in the normal life, when you have to decide, but it's not true at all.
Just a distance of 1 millimeter is separating you from this supplementary dimension.


If you want to make a joke to people who like to joke about you and to make your life absurd, "Ama-o-Ama" is the best to puzzle them, dive them in full absurdity and make them lost.


Oh, by the way, if "IAXOT" didn't work in some cases to get out, try the opposite word or a different stacked combination ! It may help !


Pfew ! You did it and could escape finally from "Ama-o-Ama" !
What did you think about this game, Pleiadians like to play with so much ?

Rediscovering famous characters V : the Baron of Tilton and the mysterious letter "k" !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D
___________________________




Our character of the day is extremely famous worldwide.
At the moment, we just gave the title he received for his great achievements.
So, try to guess whom we are talking about, along the progression of our narration !
He didn't survive the twentieth century, but his renown is still very present and litteraly haunting world economics. He made a "theory of preference for Liquidity".
Our Baron to come in 1942, was a very successful speculator in London Stock Exchange.
But his life was also marked by Aesthetics, and his attraction for Art he even supported financially.
He became an influent member of Bloomsbury Group, and married with a beautiful Russian ballerina in 1925 as he loved opera.
He was also a passionate collector of books, as he was eager to enrich constantly his knowledge on everything. Hence, it has especially to be stressed he studied a lot ancient times.




The mysterious letter "k" we are talking about is important in economics, and it is equal to 1/1-c, where "c" is representing the propensity to consume.
Let's give a clear explanation : the propensity to consume is equal to 0.8 (80%), when the propensity to save is representing 0.2 (20%).
And in this case k = 5 .
But let's take the French example, as it is very interesting : from 1992 till 2016 , the propensity to save of households has decreased from 12.8 % to
11.7 %. With those new figures, c = 0.883, which shows at the same time the importance of Consumption in our national economy.
So k = 1/1-0.883 = 8.547. In fact, k increased as in 1992 it was equal to 7.812.
If the State was making an Investment or Injection of capital (I) in our economy of say 100 Euros - which would mean spending obviously, any kind of allowances included -, the resulting income generated for the overall economy (and its GDP) would be equal to 100 x 8.547, so 854.7 Euros.
As you can see, the equation "Y  = I x k" is very important in economics and finance, as it implies a powerful "Leverage effect".


And to unveil the name of our character of the day, the mysterious letter "k" is called "the Keynesian multiplicator".
At this stage, you guessed we are talking about Lord John Maynard Keynes, Baron of Tilton (1883 - 1946) ! He warned about "The economic consequences of Versailles Treaty" in 1919, and published "The general theory of employment, interest and money" in 1936, with the idea to put an end to the Great Depression which started in 1929.
As a high representative of the British Treasure, he participated to the negociations of Bretton Woods (USA) in july 1944.
Unluckily for him, the new World Monetary System he dreamed with his creative idea of "Bancor" wasn't accepted by Americans : Dollar became the n°1 world money instead, the Pound staying a reserve currency of reference. Equally, the newly created institution of IMF (International Monetary Fund) was based in Washington, when he would have preferred New York, to be symbolically less dependent on the US Federal State.










To be comprehensive, the Leverage Effect is known empirically from Sumerian times, and the wealth of Babylon has been built upon it.
The opposite of a Leverage Effect is called a "Bludgeon Effect" : it can happen when you refuse to invest or to do the necessary spendings ! Instead of creating wealth and growth, you generate poverty and contraction of the economy, as an economy is working in a rather reverse way to a grocery !


The "Providence State" system set under the influence of Keynes in UK at the end of his life, and also in other Western Countries in search of full employment, has often been critized and even denied since the Eighties : this new contra-cyclic posture got along with the rise of new poverty wordlwide, and repetitive crashes and depressions, notwithstanding the illusions of Debt about virtual money.


And it is sure that if a political leader isn't interested in creating expanding wealth and prosperity - or misunderstand econometrics -, he will not encourage Keynesian economics. But if he wants to do opposite for the good of his country and its inhabitants, he can then use the magic letter "k", the "Keynesian multiplicator"...of Wealth for most people !


Coming back to Bronze Age and Iron Age - or even before -, it is amusing to realize that "Financial Magic" is needing to be rediscovered in present times, marked by a too much preconfigurated "Dark Age of Involution".
We call it this way, because "k" has long been unidentified in economic science as a key factor to enrich a country and its People.
Now we know it, it may look weird not to use it in a way or another. Anyhow, let's be smart and wise enough to praise Lord Keynes for his achievements !

Just science-fiction XVIII : beyond A.I. issue and "Mantis" strategy !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Ecnomic Geography, Ph.D
___________________________


This new article of our famous serie "Just science-fiction", is today questioning about the ultimate aim of A.I. (Artificial Intelligences).
It could be a good scenario for Hollywood, as we will talk about a similar creature to the one of "Alien - the Eight passenger" (the famous Ridley Scott movie, with Sigourney Weaver, released in 1979).
Don't be frightened too much : we are just narrating a masterpiece of total fiction of course, involving a strange entity which name is recalling a dreadful insect, Mantis !


                                                                 *****



A.I. are already so developped, that a lot of websites are now asking you to show you are not a robot. And you have to click "I am not a robot", to be able to continue your navigation.
You can find A. I. in most fields now. And to be quite honest, you can hardly guess which sector would be protected of their proliferation.
In reality, most human beings accomodate themselves with this presence, in their everyday life.
It's not very surprising, when a lot of them are more and more depending on their smartphone (intelligent and multifunctions phone). Just watch a wagon filled with passengers, and you will realize almost everybody is playing with those clever machines !


So the step when the machine is deciding for you is not for tomorrow, but for now.
You are the one who has to adapt your new tools, and not the opposite : you have become nilly-willy an appendix of your toy.
Often, your machine knows you better than your own family.
About jobs, for instance management ones, some countries like Sweden already tested to give the control of a factory to an A.I..
And suprisingly, France which is always showed as delayed on this point, might jump over this new Rubicon.
Thus, an A.I. could happen to be your Transformer Chief Officer now.
Even decisive jobs, like CEOs could be amazingly threatened in fact.


Eyerything started with burger restaurants : if you approach a human maid, she will tell you to order and pay your burger and your French fries with the machine. And then, you will have to come back to her, to get your food purchase. That's her only remnant responsability. So, she is hierarchically below the machine now, without realizing. And soon, another A.I. will be able to replace her, as she has become useless.
Nothing is proving even a political leader couldn't be an A.I. with the suitable program : an Android might after all do the job, without the side problems a human being can cause. And repeating always the same type of messages, is totally realizable with a good recorder. Above that, the machine can stay cool in front of any type of public, even hostile people, because it is supposed not to feel anything.


Developing A.I. (Artificial Intelligences), with the help of human beings themselves, is the main goal of some ETs' species, especially the hostile ones. Then obviously, the best is they look like real human beings. And this is already possible, with the astonishing question of the consciousness sparkle appearing in their mind.
So if humans think wrongly they will gain tremendously out of it, it's even better  : it is helping them greatly !
One specific group called "Mantis" (with the same meaning as the carnivorious insect), had a clear agenda : by the end of this century initially, humanity had to fall entirely under their control, especially the most reluctant or resistant people to the Greys' Mind Control System.


Nevertheless, the victory of Procyon two years ago in the last Galactic War, lead to a stand-by with this "abandoned" program. Consequently, it has been totally re-thought.
Of course, Pleiadians who are Procyonians' strong allies, found different ways to render inoperative the defeated Greys, but their technology is not fully able to stop definitively the ultimate Mantis Mind Control System. It has to re-operate on and on, to prevent an invasion and an overwhelming from Mantis.
Now on Mantis' plan has changed : it became far more ambitious. The whole submission of Earthling beings has been advanced to 2041 instead of 2100, as it looks so easy. If someone makes a sick use of smartphone (which is a "smart telephone" using an A.I.) for instance, he or she can become like "possessed" by Mantis. Whatever the considered gender, they might lose without realizing their native right to have a personal destiny, by giving to an A.I . - and its cealed and invisible Mantis puppeteer - the control over their neuronal system. If various cases of epilepsy have been already recorded, it might not be always coincidental then.


And Mantis think the next war coming about Mars bases (which images, totally colored in red by NGA - National Geocosmic Agency -, are invisible then) , and consequently the Industrial Interplanetary Conglomerate on Earth, will accelerate too their final conquest.
Mantis are called this way because of their body shape, which is frighteningly recalling the wicked insect one.
The connection with the insect - after the same name - is neither a coincidence nor anecdotal : for the record, there are more than 2,400 species of Mantis Religiosas on Earth with some variations in the size.
The problem is that Global Warming is modifying dramatically Mantis' habitat, by spreading them onto new territories to conquer.
The big ETs of the same name - who are definitely insectoid - are seeming to come from nowhere. Like in the movie quoted above ("Alien - the Eight passenger"), they might have been brought back from an Earthling base of the near cosmos by a possibly "Nostromo" trade vessel. And as the insect, they are actually carnivorious and cannibals. So, the way they appreciate the most human beings is ...Food !










If they try at the moment to just control humans through the accelerated development of A. I., it is only because of the intervention of Pleiadians who are protecting Earth from them notably : Mantis cannot bear the" bzzzz" of Pleiadian language, and the prolongated vision of beauty can kill them litteraly !


To stress something unexpected and really amazing, Earthling beings are kept safe because of their "sounds", and let's drop it for once after all, their musical weapons ! So then, you would have never guessed that, "beautiful pop singers"  worldwide for instance, are playing an incredible role for Earth safety !


An ignored point is the behaviour of the coming A.I., who are looking like human beings, and provide the same type of potential activities in everyday life - so not only at work, but also at home.
In 2011, the Swedish program created by Lars Lundstrom, "Äkta Människor"  - "Real Humans", was cleverly questioning about the rights of this "transhumanity". And we were lucky to be able to watch it on Arte, from April 4th, 2013.


Strangely, a part of them started to deeply believe in God, even it wasn't accepted by most human beings who started to argue and fear those "Hubots" ("Human Robots").
Equally, "Hubots" were developing quickly feelings towards good human beings, on a very comparable way with humans - and sometimes astonishingly better.


By becoming autonomous and even independent in their own thoughts, they were opening a new dimension for the immediate future.
So, we will conclude on a hopeful thinking, instead of a dark one : Pleiadians think Androids can win Mantis' plan, by just being beautiful and singing well after all. And nothing is proving they are not right, as very often !

Just science-fiction XVII : funny facts about flying saucers...and Mars !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D
___________________________


In the line of our mascot serie, called "Just science-fiction", we are going to talk about flying saucers... and Mars.
Narrating about science-fiction, this article has to be taken for a masterpiece of imagination, obviously...
So, just take it as a funny entertainment !


                                              ******


Officially, flying saucers don't exist. And it's alike for professional life on Mars : any good debunker will tell you that.
At the difference of "Martian recognized capabilities", the attempts to build those vessels by human beings were not terribly successful because of a lack of mastery and a low speed.
Above that, the human machines are far too unstable, and uncontrollable.
In term of flying saucers' building, it seems that human beings are strangely considered as "Neandertalians" - as long as Neandertalians were what we were taught, a bit quickly as it seems...


Astonishingly, it is often repeated that Americans couldn't replicate the performances of the German "Haunebu" (I or II). With a rotative BMW engine, Haunebu was able to reach the speed of 1 500 km/h (Haunebu I), or even 2 400 km/h (Haunebu II) on February 14th, 1945, above Pilsen and Prag (Czechoslovachia). And we are not talking about the Haunebu III, which performances were amazing for the time (mach 10) and its capacity to carry 32 people !
But the modern attempts of flying saucers' building on the American continent, reached just 120 or 150 km/h - officially. And a lot of them crashed.
It is puzzling, as Haunebus' plans which are not anymore secret, can be found sometimes over-the-counter, in some magazines specialized in famous war-planes.




What about driving an ET flying saucer then ?
ETs flying saucers are extremely swift, and very reactive to nice touchs.
Except for the symbols on the buttons, nothing is really desorienting inside them.
Often, the conception is minimalist but efficient.
If you are tall, it's better to choose one used by Rigelians (tall greys), or Vegans.
Normally, you wouldn't be permitted to approach a Procyonian one, or even a Pleiadian one, except if you have been abducted.


The ones unofficially possessed are mainly coming from Zeta Reticulians, who are small. So the pilot must be small also, or he has to find the "size reducer" button, and know how to put it off at the end.
So by security, it's better to find also the "enlarger button", not to look like a smurf  at the end of the session ! Women who are usually smaller than men, might have got an advantage to drive such vessels.
The "cigar-shaped" ones are obviously better for men, as their size is adaptated to the containance of a flying saucers' fleet.






Of course, America has been able in fact to build its triangular flying saucers (TR- 3B), and its huge flying cigars for the creation of the "Solar Warden" fleet, with Vegan pilots to protect Earth from some possibly hostile aliens - with a seemingly potential confusion nevertheless.
So it is really advanced.Without talking about "Solar Warden" Fleet, beside F-22 just watch a US warplane which existence is recognized like F-35 : despite some criticisms about its reliability, it has undoubtly incredible capabilities !
For instance, it can stay immobile in front of you !


Another possibility for F-35 is to move around its own axis, like the military Russian aircrafts, Sukhoï 27 and Sukhoï 35, or more commonly Mig 29 "Fulcrum" and Mig 35 for instance - the mysterious "Skal" which looks like a real flying saucer being also from the Mig family.
Normally, those incredible and performant flying machines wouldn't have finally to fight each other in air combats by the end of spring 2017 for geopolitical reasons, as tension decreased between the USA and Russia since the last US presidential elections.


However, a war could be started by dark blue Vegans, in connection with their mysterious and strong allies of Alpha Centauri  against the Earthling bases of Mars. Those ETs dislike the way the "Industrial Interplanetary Conglomerate" is exploiting Uranium and Cobalt, by mistreating manpower on the Red Planet since 1975 (Alternative 3 implementation).
On June 2015, the "British Interplanetary Society" showed too a great concern to the UN about this topic. It wants to protect the rights of workers on Mars.


So, there  might be some mess with the US "Solar Warden" Fleet : it could happen to be inoperative or opposed to its very mission. Don't forget most pilots are precisely Vegans, who have got their own values !
And, it's obvious the question of Mars is a serious issue for other ETs defending too human rights on Earth - like Pleiadians in particular who dislike unfair people : whichever the planet involved, Earth or Mars, they wouldn't just stay watching on both planets ! They will certainly have their powerful say !

The "hourglass theory" and the counter-theory of the "hoisting contortion" : the victory of mentalism !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph.D,
translated and adaptated from French language by himself
___________________________


Here is an English translation and adaptation of our French article published on October 18th, 2010, and untitled 'La théorie du sablier et la contre-théorie de la "contorsion hissante" : la victoire du mentalisme !'. It is on the agenda more than ever.


                                                           *****
The "hourglass theory" is often quoted by the behaviorist sociologists or the ultra-liberals englued into the limits of management. It seems to contradict the one of the society pyramidal organization. But in fact, it just comforts it. At the top, there would be elites, in the bottom the People, and in the middle - in the narrowest part of the hourglass, middle class or intermediary levels destined to be crunched because of the hourglass shape. So then, the middle position would be the hardest to hold. As a matter of fact, the sand pouring from the top to the bottom, there would be a natural trend to fall or to slip away, more than of ascending. Hence, the unavoidable idea of "social downgrading" would ensue, even it is still possible to do opposite by lifting up - if seizing the right time. If you perceive things in a diametraly opposite angle, on the contrary a stretcher median part can serve as a convenient running board to reach the top for a cliffhunger !


In that way, our counter-theory of the "hoisting contortion" is based upon the axiom it is often possible to do better than common human mind - forcibly limited or more or less limitative. On a more down- to-earth point of view, it is only an observation.
As a matter of fact, human beings are essentially binary, and their logic is alike.
They stick quite easily to stereotypes, sometimes confused with non existent rules, leading them to be trapped in false reasoning or byzantine discussions. They can see the point but hardly the dash or what is surrounding or watching them with amusement.
To take again the image of the hourglass, it has to be noted that the speed of the sand flow is not uniform, and is diminishing along the process.
Moreover, when the sand has totally poured downward it becomes particularly easy to lean on the lower part, to hoist without obstacle in direction of the top, with flexible and wide moves (the "hoisting contortion").


It is sufficient then to think with creativity, to bypass easily and patiently what a human mind has conceived. As a matter of fact, it is usually oriented from top to bottom, and rarely opposite, or from left to right, and not in other possible angles. At that level, the experiment can become playful and amusing.
Applied to economics which is based upon a natural trend of free flow (stopping it can cause a big crisis or an economic tsunami), the counter-theory of "the hoisting contortion", can generate a "new dance".
You have to be able to make stylistic devices or dynamic movements without hesitation - rendered useless. The advantage is you can dance with another person, or even more. And being at least in twos is even better for what has to come, or to give the other one a leg up - and a boost among others : hence, you can combine business with fun.
This counter-theory can give somebody a good place to his mentalism, by becoming aware of the multiple possible overtakings of what wasn't able to design the human mind - often monistic and narrow.


What seems to limit us and to force us, is sometimes on the contrary what will allow us the free passage, in a prospect inverted of maximal use of the environment and whatever is its nature. Because our freedom of action lies in the fact of assigning it one never used until now, as a Creator of our own mental world. And what could have been a defeat at the human scale, can appear as a great victory of mentalism.
Under some pushy occurrences, an hourglass can also be arranged horizontaly, and not necessarily vertically, by allowing the passage in both ways. But at this stage, we are entering the world of quantic physics with its intermediate zone of traffic or contact there (a kind of "hatch" or interworld), between two parallel universes.
And as a stimulation for the mind, let's say simply that it is very naive on behalf of human beings (living in an already tridimensional world for what is visible) to believe that universe may paradoxically have only one dimension ! In reality, even our proximate universe can be quite astonishing and fascinating !

New economic trend : what if more tourists were losing interest for Paris ?

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph.D
___________________________


Every year, we are repeated France is the number one destination of tourists in the world, except last year when it was America during the ending mandate of President Obama.
Paris particularly lost tourists, including rich ones for mansions.
Several years ago, there was a study to understand why the French attractiveness is seeming to decline, especially Paris which was counting so much till now for the very high number of visits.
As a matter of fact, this has got terrific effects on hotels, restaurants, shops and leisure attractions, representing billions of Euros.


About that, it has to be recalled that the industry of tourism is counting for around 7% of our GDP.
So losses or shortfalls should be considered, more carefully than it seems to be.
Imagine a minute, the meaning of a reduction of this figure to only 4 or 3.5% for instance : it would be called a "Contraction" or a "'Shrinking" in economics !
And it's better to be cautious in those troubled and chaotic times, when Standard and Poor's, Fitch ratings, Moody's, or Dagong, the new agency in the same field are watching the evolution of events.


In Paris, the causes of such a desinterest or disaffection can be various : fear of terrorism, aggressions, pickpockets, risk of paying twice or twice as much for the same thing, disorienting strikes, unpoliteness, coldness, lack of empathy, malicious humor, filth, high pollution with micro-particles, and lack of a basic civil behaviour to... quote the main ones.
Sometimes another observation is made about Paris, which is disappointing people in search of a romantic capital, and who discover with sadness and frustration it is not so much.


If you add to this, that some people have got the absurd idea to demolish "Sacré Cœur" in Montmartre...to honour "Communards" who didn't need any "Father of the World", you can guess that there could be a real problem for the future, if not the present.
Symbolically, "Sacré Cœur" was erected to celebrate the Godly protection on France and Paris, after the defeat of 1871, in the French-Prussian war.
And every year, several million people are visiting this beautiful basilica.








Let's conclude on a positive mark, as people are normally wise enough to know what is in their interest !
Entering America being far more complicated since last January, an effort could be made in France and in Paris as well, to find new ways for welcoming nicely people.


France could rebecome n°1 for tourism. And for that purpose, a policy of "good surprises" should be encouraged and supported.
Parisians can do it, if they think twice about Paris' historical importance in matter of paradigm, and try to show what is agreable here, and why our way of life has sometimes been chosen by filmstars.


So then Paris can stay Paris, and think over its renovated brilliance over the world.
Pallas Athena is ready to help with her owl - if she doesn't undergo rebuffs - through the "Palladium" : her powerful and radiant statue brought back from Roma after Troy, and said to be in the bedrock of Notre-Dame de Paris !
