Would you answer a Sphinx if she asked you a question? Centuries of myth, legends, and secrets surround the Sphinx. Ancient Egyptian sects, Greek poetry, and believers of their stories have passed those stories down through generations. The Banished King is by Frank R. Stockton, who also wrote the story of The Lady or the Tiger from the last season of Fairy Sleepy. There are always nuggets of wisdom in his stories plus cool creatures, and I hope tonight's story makes you very Fairy Sleepy!

The extraterrestrial comedy podcast where we probe child prodigy/genius/Indigo Child Boriska Kipriyanovich. Boris, has lived quite the life. Well, lives actually. You see dear listener, Boris was born on Mars and just so happened to be a pilot before nuclear war put all that to ruins and Boris was recreated here on earth. Unusually though, Boris could remember his previous life and his phenomenal feats from an early age stunned his family and university professors. These feats could include being able to lift his own head up through only the power of Boris' neck and an extremely detailed knowledge of space systems before Boris was even in high school… All this would go on to Boris developing the ability of foresight or maybe even five-sight because Boris, begun sharing prophecies for the future of humankind. Could Boris truly see the future? Boris was studied by scientists and you know that you can trust science. The thing with prophecies though is that when you try to show off and get a little too specific, things tend to fall apart. Unless that is, there is another explanation… What if Boris is seeing the future in terms of movies that will be released? Or could more homely explanations be the reality in this case? Or is Boris an Indigo Child after all? We also ponder during this episode as to whether lefties are better at art? If you tickle the Sphinx behind the ear, will this unlock the secrets of humanity? What's that got to do with Boris? All that and more on this week's file.

Additional music via: https://freepd.com - thank you most kindly good people. There was a composition from Danny Elfman early on called ‘The Book! - Obituaries' which you may recognise from a Tim Burton and Warner Bros. Pictures classic movie Beetlejuice. This tune really fits with our vibe and we both absolutely love the movie. There were also a few The Legend of Zelda themes today when discussing Boris' origin and prophecies. First up was the Temple of Time theme and then the Legend Of Hyrule theme, both from the Ocarina of Time (1998). Next up, from A Link to the Past, was the Fortune Teller's House theme (1991/1992). All were composed by hero of sound, Kōji Kondō and were originally released on Nintendo consoles the the Nintendo 64 and Super Nintendo. There was next a snippet from Eddie Murphy's classic 1986 movie called The Golden Child Theme - The Chosen One, composed by Michel Colombier and performed by Robbie Buchanan courtesy of Paramount. The movie soundtrack is available via La-La Land Records. We finished up with with the Staff Roll aka credits theme from 1990-1992's Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) composed again by Nintendo's hero of sound, Koji Kondo. Yes, we got carried away with music today. Thank you folks.
En 1896, Georges Méliès, précurseur du cinéma, propose le premier film d'horreur intitulé Le Manoir du Diable. Si, depuis cette époque, les effets spéciaux ont connu une constante évolution, le genre s'est toujours appuyé sur des figures fortes. Qui n'a pas entendu parler des vampires et de Dracula, du diable, des fantômes ou des extraterrestres ? Parmi ces personnages, l'un d'eux est en tête de la liste de nos pires cauchemars, à savoir, la figure de la poupée, avec notamment l'emblématique Chucky. Le 28 décembre 2022, c'est le film M3GAN qui viendra appuyer cette tradition en nous racontant l'histoire d'une poupée dotée d'intelligence artificielle. Si le cinéma d'horreur a toujours usé d'imagination pour faire frissonner le spectateur, il a souvent pris un malin plaisir à utiliser des figures gentilles et innocentes pour aller plus loin dans la terreur. Quelles légendes maléfiques existent autour des poupées ? Comment le cinéma d'horreur est passé de l'image de la petite fille à celle de la poupée ? Qui sont les personnages référents sur le sujet ?

L'œuvre d'art est un moyen évident de faire passer un message, qu'il soit sociétal, politique voire religieux. Les formes pour le porter sont très différentes. Par exemple, la provocation utilisée par l'artiste. Ou encore, tenter de battre un record. Comme l'a fait le portraitiste américain Roger William Curtis en peignant le tableau le plus petit du monde. Au début des années 60, Roger William Curtis se lance dans la peinture avec ce projet fou de réaliser le plus petit tableau du monde. Il va donc proposer une œuvre intitulée « la face du Christ peinte dans un chas d'aiguille », qui a la dimension étonnante de 6 dixièmes de millimètre carrée. Comme son nom l'indique, il s'agit d'un portrait représentant le Christ, mais l'allusion au chas, c'est-à-dire au trou minuscule d'une aiguille, n'est évidemment pas anodine. Que représente le tableau de Roger William Curtis ? Comment ce tableau miniature s'intègre-t-il dans l'œuvre du peintre ? Écoutez la suite dans cet épisode de "Maintenant vous savez - Culture".

Attention ! Alerte ! Préparez-vous à être surpris par la réponse à cette question. Car la chanson de Noël la plus connue n'est pas celle de Mariah Carrey : “All I want for Christmas is You”. Eh non, malgré le fait qu'elle inonde magasins et émissions de télé à chaque Noël, le single de Mariah n'est pas numéro 1. Et ce n'est pas non plus “Petit Papa Noël”, qui lui aussi résonne dans nos têtes tous les mois de décembre. Non, il s'agit d'un tube beaucoup plus vieux, puisqu'il a 80 ans : “White Christmas”, interprété par Bing Crosby et sorti en 1941. Et cette chanson, nettement plus mélancolique que celle de Mariah, détient un autre record. Car au-delà d'être la chanson de Noël la plus connue, elle est également selon le Guiness Book des records, le single le plus vendu de l'histoire de la musique, rien que ça. Mais alors, c'est quoi cette chanson ? Qui est l'auteur ? Et a-t-elle reçu une distinction particulière ? Écoutez la suite dans cet épisode de "Maintenant vous savez - Culture".

Mais c'est aux Etats Unis que c'est devenu un genre, voire, une tradition. La première vague des « Christmas movies » arrive au cinéma dans les années 90. Mais d'où vient cette tendance ?

Killer Dwarfs is a Canadian hard rock band that formed in late 1981 in Oshawa, Ontario, and enjoyed success in their native Canada in the 1980s. The band is known for its offbeat sense of humour and was nominated for two Juno Awards during its career. Killer Dwarfs were sometimes compared to NWOBHM acts such as Iron Maiden and Saxon.Before The Killer Dwarfs formed, the band consisted of Darrell Millar, Bryce Trewin, and Ange Fodero in a group called Sphinx. After Sphinx, Russ Graham entered the picture and they became the Killer Dwarfs. The original line-up consisted of Russ Graham (vocals) and Darrell Millar (drums), along with Bryce Trewin (guitar) and Ange Fodero (bass).Trewin and Fodero left the band shortly afterward and were replaced by guitarist Mike Hall and bassist Ron Mayer. This line-up released the band's breakthrough 1986 album Stand Tall, followed by Big Deal in 1988 and Dirty Weapons in 1990. The band received much recognition in Canada and the United States during the 80's, and its videos were in regular rotation at MuchMusic & MTV. Gerry Finn replaced Hall in 1992, and the album Method to the Madness was released later that year.The band toured for several years but then parted ways. During the mid-to-late 1990s, the band members pursued other projects. Graham formed a band called Penny Black, and Hall and Finn both became members of the Canadian metal band Helix. Millar went on to drum for the southern rock band Laidlaw before forming his own Bon Scott era AC/DC tribute band Autobon, which went on to become Automan.ca, which provided Millar with a vehicle for recording original material. Mayer became a businessman and moved to the U.S. In 2001, however, the line-up of Graham, Millar, Hall and Mayer reunited to tour across North America. Recordings from these shows make up the live album Reunion of Scribes: Live 2001.'. The band again went on hiatus until 2013, when Graham, Millar, Finn and Mayer released the album Start @ One which had been previously recorded in 1993. Also in 2013.The band has been touring since then, playing high profile festival as well as club and casino gigs and are working on new material which will hopefully culminate in a new album sometime in 2023. Darrell Millar is also an author with two books currently under his resume and part two of his autobiography is due in 2023 as well.
Hello and welcome to Entangled! The podcast where we explore the science of consciousness, the true nature of reality, and what it means to be a spiritual being having a human experience. I'm your host Jordan Youkilis, and today I'm joined by Dr. Martin Sweatman. Martin is a professor at the University of Edinburgh in the School of Engineering who has also published research on evidence for the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis and the sacred site Göbekli Tepe, which I consistently struggle to pronounce. In this conversation, we start by discussing why Göbekli Tepe is such an important archeological discovery. We then discuss the synchronous timing between Göbekli Tepe's construction and the Younger Dryas period, and why the YD period was such an important epoch in our planet's history. Martin explains the evidence supporting the impact hypothesis, which suggests a cosmic impact contributed to the dramatic cooling of our Earth during the YD period (approximately 12,800-11,600 years ago). We then discuss how the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis relates to the broader debate of catastrophism vs. gradualism. We next discuss Göbekli Tepe's Vulture stone, the Taurid meteor stream, and the archaeoastronomical alignments at the site. Next, Martin and I discuss comet decay, the geological signals at impact sites across the globe, the lunar cycle and the Urtha man. We end the conversation considering what historical sites may still remain uncovered and what Göbekli Tepe could mean for the dating of the Sphinx. Music: Intro: Ben Fox - "The Vibe".

A new expanded edition of the groundbreaking investigation into early high cultures and ancient solar outbursts• Updated throughout with recent developments and additional illustrations• Reveals how solar outbursts caused the end of the last ice age, unleashed catastrophe upon ancient advanced civilizations, and led to six millennia of a Solar-Induced Dark Age• Includes evidence from solar science, geology, oceanic circulation patterns, the Sphinx, the underground cities of Cappadocia, the Easter Island rongorongo glyphs, and the Göbekli Tepe complex in TurkeyIn this newly revised and expanded edition, updated throughout with recent developments, geologist Robert Schoch builds upon his revolutionary theory that the origins of the Sphinx date back much further than 2500 BCE and examines scientific evidence of the catastrophe that destroyed early high culture nearly 12,000 years ago.Combining evidence from multiple scientific disciplines, Schoch makes the case that the abrupt end of the last ice age, circa 9700 BCE, was due to an agitated Sun. Solar outbursts unleashed electrical/plasma discharges upon Earth, triggering dramatic climate change as well as increased earthquake and volcanic activity, fires, high radiation levels, and massive floods. Schoch explains how these events impacted the civilizations of the time, set humanity back thousands of years, and led to six millennia of a Solar-Induced Dark Age (SIDA). Applying the SIDA framework to ancient history, he explores how many megalithic monuments, petroglyphs, indigenous traditions, and legends fall logically into place, including the underground cities of Cappadocia, the Easter Island rongorongo glyphs, and the Göbekli Tepe complex in Turkey. He also reveals that our Sun is a much more unstable star than previously believed, suggesting that history could repeat itself with a solar outburst powerful enough to devastate modern society.Weaving together a new view of the origins and antiquity of civilization and the dynamics of the planet we live on, Schoch maintains we must heed the megalithic warning of the past and collectively prepare for future events.Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., a tenured faculty member at Boston University, earned his doctorate in geology and geophysics at Yale University in 1983. Known for his research on ancient civilizations, he is the author of numerous books, including Origins of the Sphinx. Catherine Ulissey, a 20-year ballet and Broadway dance veteran, earned her B.A. from Emerson College in 2002. Married to Dr. Schoch in 2010, she enjoys contributing to his research while teaching her art, formerly for Harvard University's dance program and more recently for Wellesley College.

Today, we're going back to Overthinking MTG's roots by clicking that random card button and we got a sphinx from Shards of Alara - Sphinx of Steel Wind. The creature is an absolute house and reminds me a lot of my favorite white beat stick from back in the day - Akroma, Angel of Wrath. This was a fun discussion and I hope you like it! Overthinking MTG is a podcast where our host, HamHocks42, takes a look at a random card from Magic: the Gathering and talks about it for a while. Often, though, he ends up yammering about whatever's on the top of his mind that the card reminds him of and a half hours passes and it turns out all he's done is share his thoughts on recent news related to Commander, Magic: the Gathering Arena, Modern, Pioneer, Standard, or humorous anecdotes from his kitchen table jank days.

In a dim corner of my room for longer than my fancy thinks A beautiful and silent Sphinx has watched me through the shifting gloom. Inviolate and immobile she does not rise she does not stir For silver moons are naught to her and naught to her the suns that reel. Red follows grey across the air, the waves of moonlight ebb and flow But with the Dawn she does not go and in the night-time she is there …

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events 1643 Birth of Sir Jean Chardin, French jeweler and traveler. Jean is remembered for his ten-volume work, The Travels of Sir John Chardin, which is considered one of the most important early accounts of Persia and the Near East. In Travels, Jean wrote about the Persian love language of tulips. When a young man presents a tulip to his mistress he gives her to understand, by the general color of the flower that he is on fire with her beauty, and by the black base of it that his heart is burnt to a coal. 1845 Death of Elizabeth Fox, also known as Baroness Holland, English political hostess and flower lover. When she was 15, Elizabeth married Sir Godfrey Webster, who was twenty years her senior. After having five children in six years, Elizabeth began an affair with a Whig politician named Henry Fox, the 3rd Baron Holland. When she had his child, she divorced Godfrey and quickly married Mr. Fox. Together they had six more children. Elizabeth is remembered for her strong will and domineering nature. She was a zealous socialite and highly passionate about flowers. In garden history, Elizabeth is remembered for introducing the Dahlia to England. In 1804 during a visit to Madrid's Royal Botanic Gardens, Elizabeth received Dahlia pinnata seeds from the botanist Antonio José Cavanilles ("Cah-vah-nee-yes"). When she returned to England, the little seeds were successfully cultivated in her gardens at Holland House. Twenty years later, Elizabeth's beloved second husband, Henry Fox, was so proud of her effort to share the Dahlia with England that he wrote these words in a little love note: The dahlia you brought to our isle Your praises forever shall speak; 'Mid gardens as sweet as your smile, And in color as bright as your cheek. 1964 Death of Denys Zirngiebel, Swiss-born naturalist, florist, and plant breeder. After establishing a home in Needham, Massachusetts, Denys sent for his wife and little boy. Denys and Henrietta had four children. Their only daughter (also named Henriette) married Andrew Newell Wyeth, and their son was NC Wyeth, the Realistic Painter. During the 1860s, Denys worked for the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard University. He later bought a 35-acre tract of land along the Charles River in Needham and started his floral business. An excellent businessman, Denys expertly marketed his inventory. Denys shipped flowers to the White House and the State Department each week. In a nod to his Swiss heritage, Denys was the first person in America to cultivate the Giant Swiss Pansy successfully. Denys's Needham nursery grew so many Giant Swiss Pansies that the town adopted the flower as their floral emblem, and Denys became known as the "Pansy King." 2001 On this day, the French Film Amelie was released in the United States. In the movie, Amélie steals her father's garden gnome to help him escape his depression after losing his wife. Amélie gives the gnome to an airline stewardess. Her father starts receiving photos of his garden buddy visiting iconic travel destinations like Monument Valley, The Empire State Building, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, The Blue Mosque in Instanbul, and The Sphinx in Cairo, Egypt. In the end, Amélie's plan works. In the last scene, her dad sets off on his own adventure inspired by a little garden gnome. On a historical note, one of the earliest mentions of garden gnomes I could find was from July 9, 1928, in the Liverpool Echo. The article announced: Quaint Garden Ornaments... a quaint littie tribe of people - garden gnomes, sixty in number - [were] sold by auction, in Liverpool. They were imported from the Continent. Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Revolutionary Genius of Plants by Stefano Mancuso This book came out in 2018, and the subtitle is A New Understanding of Plant Intelligence and Behavior. The Wall Street Journal raved about this book in their review: In this thought-provoking, handsomely illustrated book, Italian neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso considers the fundamental differences between plants and animals and challenges our assumptions about which is the 'higher' form of life. The editor wrote, ...world-renowned scientist Stefano Mancuso reveals the surprisingly sophisticated ability of plants to innovate, to remember, and to learn, offering us creative solutions to the most vexing technological and ecological problems that face us today. Despite not having brains or central nervous systems, plants perceive their surroundings with an even greater sensitivity than animals. They efficiently explore and react promptly to potentially damaging external events thanks to their cooperative, shared systems; without any central command centers, they are able to remember prior catastrophic events and to actively adapt to new ones. Stefano introduced the controversial topic of plant memory this way, After years spent investigating the many aspects of plant intelligence, I have been consistently surprised and fascinated by plants' clear capacity for memory. Maybe that sounds strange, but think about it for a moment. It isn't too difficult to imagine that intelligence is not the product of one single organ but that it is inherent to life, whether there is a brain or not. Plants, from this point of view, are the most obvious demonstration of how the vertebrate brain is an "accident," evolved only in a very small number of living beings-animals-while in the vast majority of life, represented by plant organisms, intelligence-the ability to learn, understand, and react successfully to new or trying situations--has developed without a dedicated organ. All plants are capable of learning from experience and therefore have memorization mechanisms. If you submit a plant, for example an olive tree, to a stress such as drought or salinity, it will respond by implementing the necessary modifications to its anatomy and metabolism to ensure its survival. Nothing unusual in that, right? If, after a certain amount of time, we submit the same plant to the exact same stimulus, perhaps with an even stronger intensity, we notice something that is surprising only on the surface: this time, the plant responds more effectively to the stress than it did the first time. It has learned its lesson. Somewhere it has preserved traces of the solutions found and, when there was a need, has quickly recalled them in order to react more efficiently and accurately. In other words, it learned and stored the best answers in its memory, thereby increasing its chances of survival. Stefano's clarity and conversation tone take these scientifically modern concepts and help us to see plants on a new plane of understanding. This book is 240 pages of the latest plant research and gorgeous botanical photographs to illustrate some wild ideas about the plant world. You can get a copy of The Revolutionary Genius of Plants by Stefano Mancuso and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $4. Botanic Spark 1890 Death of Shirley Hibberd, English journalist and garden writer. He is remembered as one of the most successful gardening writers of the Victorian era. Shirley edited three enormously popular gardening magazines, including Amateur Gardening, which is still published today. Shirley's life story was lost to time until the garden historian Anne Wilkinson wrote his biography after fifteen years of painstaking research. Anne shares a wonderful timeline of what she could piece together about Shirley's life. The result is a wonderful and poignant mix of gardening passion and personal tragedy, as evidenced by the events between 1877 and 1885. 1877 The Amateur's Kitchen Garden. 1878 Home Culture of the Watercress leads to Shirley Hibberd being awarded a gold medal by the RHS. 1879 'Water for Nothing Every House its own Water Supply'; Familiar Garden Flowers starts to be issued. 1880 Shirley Hibberd and Sarah move to Brownswood Park, Highbury. Sarah dies of heart disease and is buried in Abney Park Cemetery. 1881 Feud between Shirley Hibberd and William Robinson generated by Shirley Hibberd's criticism of William Robinson's asparagus competition. Shirley Hibberd invited to edit Amateur Gardening, a new cheap paper, published by Collingridges. Marriage to Ellen Mantle, his cook. 1884 They move to Priory Road, Kew. Shirley Hibberd works for the RHS on renovating their garden at Chiswick; is a member of the Floral Committee and the Garden Committee. 1885 Birth of Shirley Hibberd's daughter Ellen, and death of Ellen, his wife; she is buried in Abney Park. The Golden Gate and Silver Steps. Shirley Hibberd organises a Pear Conference. Shirley was a champion of amateur gardening during an era when it was thoroughly rebuked by horticultural high society. But Shirley's curiosity and passion for gardening and its ancillary interests overpowered any scorn. When it came to gardening, Shirley was a conscious competent, and he was eager to educate others about gardening, a topic of many of his books. Shirley's topics ranged from town gardening and aquariums to beekeeping and conservation. Shirley was ahead of his time. Shirley Hibberd once wrote, ...the social qualities of flowers [are so many] that it would be a difficult ... to enumerate them. ... [Upon] entering a room, [we always feel welcome when] we find a display of flowers on the table. Where there are flowers about, the hostess appears glad, the children pleased, the very dog and cat are grateful... the whole scene and [all souls seem] more hearty, homely, and beautiful, [in the presence of] the bewitching roses, and orchids and lilies and mignonette! Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.
In our episode on the Sphinx Water Erosion Theory, we discussed the theory that the Sphinx was 10,000 years old. This date would require us to completely reorder our sense of how humanity evolved. We decided it's simply too out there to be true. But what if we told you that there is an archaeological site 10,000 years old whose shocking discovery did indeed require archaeologists to change the way they interpreted history? It's like if the Sphinx really did turn out to be really 10,000 years old, except it's not the Sphinx, and it's not in Egypt. It's in Turkey. It's called Gobleke Tepe. Join us as we explore a wild, weird world of decapitated megaliths, menacing animals in high relief, gardens of megapeens, and a lost culture far closer to the last Ice Age than they are to us.

Sam takes Danielle back to Hyperion in part three of his epic journey through the 1990 book The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons. We're off to an amazing start as Danielle struggles to remember anything about the previous episode, but no time for that, we have a lot going on in this episode! The remaining pilgrims awake in the Time Tomb of the Sphinx, and before too long they are shocked to find that, rather than Father Hoyt, the cruciform parasite has resurrected Father Paul Duré. Duré seems rather sanguine about his being alive again, despite his best absolute torturous efforts to die earlier, and the Consul provides him with the records from his comlog so he can catch up on the pilgrims' stories. Meanwhile, Brawne and Martin set off back to Keep Chronos to retrieve more food and water, but Martin quickly detours them to the dead City of Poets where he plans to stay and write his cantos, which surely won't go wrong. Kassad, meanwhile, has found Moneta, but she doesn't know who he is (time-travel shenanigans, don't worry about it) but they fight and have sex anyway, so really, about as expected. Eventually the Shrike shows up and takes them all through a weird portal, which is a new thing for it to do. Also meanwhile, Meina Gladstone goes on a walk visiting all the worlds of the pilgrims and remunerates on the choices she made, which we're still largely unaware of, so not much is learned. Martin is writing furiously, approaching the conclusion of his cantos, when the Shrike shows up and drags him away to its massive tree of thorns. Martin, understandably, is absolutely livid that he isn't allowed to finish his work. Back in the valley, the pilgrims still there find a strange figure coming towards them, it's Het Masteen, he's back! Before we can learn more, we cut to Brawne, who wanders through the Keep, grabs some supplies, is briefly waylaid by a rock-slide, before going back to the valley and finding no one else there. That's when the Shrike shows up and slips a blade surgically behind her ear. Then we cut to Meina Gladstone, at a war briefing, and to the surprise of everyone in the war room, and absolutely no one else, the Ousters have outwitted them again, and are currently invading the web, having launched the invasion decades ago, traveling at sublight speeds to avoid detection. The Web seems absolutely screwed (they really should have purchased a dehubridifier), but Meina steps up, outlines a plan, and then decides to convene the government to declare war on the Ousters (we guess they weren't at war already?) and also maybe the TechnoCore. What does any of this mean? Absolutely no clue, maybe we'll find out next time!

Legendary author of Forbidden Archeology, Michael Cremo, reveals fossil evidence that homo-sapiens have lived on planet Earth for millions of years in episode 81 of the Far Out with Faust podcast.We're digging into some of the most mind-blowing and mysterious archeological finds with the world's premier alternative archeologist. Tune in as these two tear into Darwin's theories and the subsequent take-over of cognitive authoritarianism, and the absolute power of ideology. But Cremo isn't some conspiracy theorist — or worse, a science denier — he's incredibly wise, humble, soft-spoken and article. His incredible body of work is on par with his gentile humility. Make no mistake about it, he based his entire book (the bestselling Forbidden Archeology) on the actual fossil record.So why haven't you heard about these incredible finds? They don't fit the accepted narrative, naturally. Not surprisingly, Faust finds a way to bring it back to the Rockefellers and their motivation for the stranglehold they have placed on “accepted science.” Coexistence — the idea that different species of humans walked the planet together for millennia — has now become accepted scientific fact. Is it so strange, argues Cremo, to acknowledge the evidence that suggests humans have been around for millions — even billions — of years? That is not a statement made from conjecture. It is made from scrutinizing fossil records and we invite you to listen to the evidence presented and decide for yourself what you believe. We're unearthing some of the most incredible examples of archaeological finds:-A modern human hand bone found at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania that dates back least 1.84 million years-Modern human footprints discovered at Laetoli, Tanzania in estimated to be 3.7 million years old-The oldest human footprints found outside Africa, close to one million years old, found in Happisburgh England-Geological evidence that indicates the Sphinx may be far older than mainstream Egyptologists believe-Human remains and tools found in billion-year-old rock formations in California by world-renowned geologist JD Whitney-Discovery of the Antikythera mechanism, the world's first computer, found beneath the sea-Klerksdorp spheres, the mysterious metallic objects found in South Africa that set off a firestorm of controversy Buy Michael Cremo's book, Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race https://a.co/d/5m37MCGConnect with Michael CremoWebsites: https://www.mcremo.com/http://www.forbiddenarcheology.com/Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/MichaelCremoItsReallyMe/#Podcast #Archaeology #HiddenHistory #MichaelCremo #FarOutWithFaust
Welcome to Wednesday Q&A, where you ask questions and we answer them! In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about weight training, pain in back bending, yin yoga poses, and the importance of controlling your pelvis. Your questions:* You talked about weight training a couple of weeks ago on the podcast. You mentioned it was beneficial to incorporate it, especially as we age. Could you define a little bit more about what you mean when you talk about weight training? I don't like lifting heavier traditional weights in general. It just feels off in my body most of the time. And I prefer resistance bands, wrist and ankle weights, sandbags, and an exercise ball. Would you classify those kinds of props as weight training? Is there a certain weight range that's recommended to build up? And secondly, you mentioned that it was particularly necessary for women, for our bone health as we go through menopause. Does this mean it's less essential for men? * When I practice yin yoga there are two poses that irritate me: Sphinx and Bridge with the block underneath my coccyx with the legs out straight, extended. I have no problem doing bridge pose, wheel pose, and upward-facing dogs in yang styles, which would be vinyasa styles. But these two static poses caused me problems in my lower back on the right side at the SI joint. I assume it comes from compression of tissue, but I'm surprised I feel absolutely nothing in yang styles or when doing long-distance runs, cross-country skiing, or salsa dancing. I'm a great forward binder. I like arm balances. My right hand is the strong hand and I have rather loose ligaments. I try to focus on strength. My weaknesses are hip flexion despite the loose ligaments, maybe because I am a long-distance runner, and backbends. I call it weakness, not because it bothers me, but just compared to what it looks like on average. Now and then I try these poses again and see whether something changed. The problem has persisted for around two years now. What would you recommend? Massages? Working on strengthening my glutes? Hip flexion and back bends did not really improve the situation or only very slightly. * I love LYT so much and it has helped me counteract years of dance. I still practice ballet and wonder how do I better educate people who want to just bend their spines and lock out their knees? In other words, why is it so important to control the pelvis?

Danielle's terrifying month continues as Sam brings her part two of the 1990 Dan Simmons book The Fall of Hyperion. Brawne and Kassad return to the other pilgrims with the rapidly dying body of Father Hoyt, and they decide to call in the Consul's ship to see if the surgery on board can save Hoyt. However, as they pack to go meet the ship, Kassad's perimeter alarms go off and he leaves to investigate. The others trudge up the valley but the ship isn't there to meet them. It seems CEO Meina Gladstone has grounded the Consul's ship lest they be tempted to use it to abandon their pilgrimage, so the pilgrims decide to seek shelter from the storm in the Sphinx. Meanwhile, Severn is invited to go visit Hyperion, in person, by Gladstone, as she wants a "poet's perspective" on the situation. So Severn visits and runs into one Melio Alvarez, one time lover of the backwards aging Rachel. Severn interrogates Melio about if he still has feelings for the now infant Rachel, which seems like a real jerk thing to do to the poor man, and then he returns to the web, accomplishing not a whole lot on his trip. Back in the valley of the Time Tombs, Kassad is locked in battle with an unseen sniper he assumes is Moneta. He obliterates one of the Time Tombs, the Crystal Monolith, and then races across the valley floor to it smoldering structure, being heavily wounded in the process, but he sees a figure waiting for him high in the structure. Meanwhile, Severn goes to attend a briefing on the war with the Ousters and things are not looking good for the Hegemony. They will need to commit at least a third of their fleet to Hyperion to secure victory. When questioned about whether such an over-commitment is a prudent idea, Admiral Nashita assures everyone that while they grossly underestimated the Ousters up to this point, this time they're super-duper sure they got it all figured out and should win the war within a week, what could go wrong? We'll have to wait until at least next time to learn, as Danielle and Sam wrap this episode with perhaps their best business idea yet: The Dehubridifier, pre-orders are open now!
Xylophanes tersa, the tersa sphinx, is a moth of the family Sphingidae. The species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1771. It is found from the United States (Massachusetts south to southern Florida, west to Nebraska, New Mexico and southern Arizona), through Mexico, the West Indies and Central America and into parts of South America (including Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil). An occasional stray can be found as far north as Canada.
In Digging up Ancient Aliens, our host Fredrik uses his background in archaeology to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between on the TV show Ancient Aliens. This time we will solve the riddles of the Sphinx, could there be an ancient library beneath this famous monument? Some believe that the "Hall of Records" is real and is evidence of a much older sphinx. But how have Egyptologists dated this monument, and how would we know if it's correct? By using the latest research and technologies, we hope to decode this ancient mystery. We'll also hunt for the Holy Grail and Visigoth treasure in Rennes-le-Château and Rosslyn Chapel. Did a french priest stumble upon portals and riches from another dimension? Did the templars find the Holy Grail and hide it with the help of William Sinclair in Scotland? This episode is based on the claims in Ancient Aliens episode four of season three called "Aliens and Temples of Gold" (S03E04).

The mythological creature known as the sphinx is an important figure in both Greek and Egyptian legend and art. It has a lion's body and a human head. The word was derived from the Greek word "to bind" or "to squeeze," but its origin is not related to the legend. The earliest known mention of the creature was by Hesiod.The story of the sphinx of Thebes, which is regarded as the most famous figure in legend, revolves around the creature's terrifying behaviour when it demanded the correct answer to a riddle that was taught to it by the Muses. Failing to answer that question would lead to the sphinx devouring the person. The legend of the sphinx being an omniscient being has grown, and its wisdom still remains relevant today.In Greek mythology, the sphinx is depicted as a woman's head instead of a man's. It also has the wings of an eagle and the tail and body of a lion. According to Pliny the Elder, Ethiopia produces numerous sphinxes, and experts from the 20th century have confirmed that the creatures have brown hair and breasts based on archaeological findings.According to Statius, the sphinx is a winged creature with a long tail and a cloud of gore resting on its face. Its wings are sometimes described as those of an eagle and a serpent-headed tail.Read more at https://mythlok.com/greek-sphinx/
In the modern day, we don't often see punishments so strict that they could be passed down to their children. This week however, we got to see one!Do you have any examples of supernatural curses in your life? Do you believe any group in particular has been singled out divinely for protection or punishment? If so, this is the weekend to tell us! You can call us toll-free at 585-526-8774 or tiny.cc/callSG and tell us why!___________________TIME STAMPS & CALL NOTES 00:00 - Intro - Eric got a vasectomy and Alex Jones got emasculated!06:34 - Nick (he/him) - TN - What about Christians who don't believe in hell?20:35 - Sphinx (he/him) - TN - This might be uncomfortable to listen to.29:53 - Steven (he/him) - AZ - Our society is set up for secular curses37:53 - Kay (he/him) - Nowhere - Is identity politics empowering prejudice?01:01:00 - Seb (they/them) - CAN - Abusing empathy01:13:23 - Chris (he/him) - SCT - Does ableism empower treating people as less than human?01:23:45 - End of show00:00 - Intro - Eric got a vasectomy and Alex Jones got emasculated!What does it mean for society when a jury finds someone liable for nearly a BILLION dollars? Eric has some opinions!06:34 - Nick (he/him) - TN - What about Christians who don't believe in hell?Nick was blindsided during a conversation with a Christian friend who doesn't believe in hell! Eric takes a moment to point out that not all denominations believe in hell, which makes listening so very important. But now down to brass tacks, could a god me morally palatable if hell is off the table?20:35 - Sphinx (he/him) - TN - This might be uncomfortable to listen to.Sphinx took the opportunity to talk about a very painful subject for Eric today… literally! In the wake of the supreme court's decisions, getting a vasectomy is a good option for those who can get them! Eric answers some questions about his experience in the hopes of making it a little less scary for others.29:53 - Steven (he/him) - AZ - Our society is set up for secular cursesSteven points out that a curse doesn't need to be supernatural. From the legal system to one's own family, the impact of a person's decisions can have lasting repercussions even after their death. That said, we shouldn't view the children as guilty, but the punishments of their parents being carried out.37:53 - Kay (he/him) - Nowhere - Is identity politics empowering prejudice?Kay wanted to ask some pretty tough questions today about Eric's ethnicity. What are the costs and benefits of embracing your ethnicity? What about your beliefs? Would abandoning them get the world closer to peace, or would it simply empower bigotry?01:01:00 - Seb (they/them) - CAN - Abusing empathySeb hit close to home today with Eric. Churches often depend on other people to be the bigger person, in order to control them. This isn't just a religious problem though. Those who have endured this kind of abuse often are left with learned trauma responses that need to be unlearned as adults. We need to remember that we deserve our boundaries, and that it isn't selfish to let people own their own bad behavior.01:13:23 - Chris (he/him) - SCT - Does ableism empower treating people as less than human?Chris wants to talk about the way ableism is still a big conversation that we as a society have to engage in! They both discuss the importance of education and normalization to break down the “othering” that happens around neurodivergence, mobility, and more.___________________Skeptic Generation is LIVE every Sunday at 11:30am-1:00pm CTCall on your phone: 585-LA-MURPH (585-526-8774) Call online: https://tiny.cc/callSG Love the show?

The first sphinxes were made by the Egyptians and were usually equipped with a nemes, which is a head-dress. Some examples of these are sphinxes that have human faces but are surrounded by lions' mane, and in the New Kingdom, the head was often represented by a ram. The exact time that the first sphinx was created is not known. The most famous one is the Great Sphinx of Giza, which dates back to the reign of Cheops around 2,500 BCE.In the Eighteenth Dynasty, during a hunting expedition, the Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose IV fell asleep in the shadow of the great Sphinx. He woke up and declared that the statue had spoken to him and that he was going to become the king if he could clear the sand around its feet. During the reign of Chephren, the number of sphinxes became more widespread. They were usually placed near a tomb, a mortuary temple, or a funerary monument.In Egyptian mythology, the sphinx can sometimes be depicted with a woman's face. One of the most famous examples of this is the statue of Queen Hetepheres II of Egypt, which dates back to around 2700 to 2,500 BC. The sphinx was also adorned with a royal headdress, which was worn by the pharaohs.The sphinx is different from other Egyptian deities in that it has both a human head and an animal body, which is unusual since most of the other major deities have animal heads and human bodies. One possible explanation is that it's the statue's depiction of Leo, which is the constellation of the lion. Many pharaohs had their heads carved atop the guardian statues for their tombs to show their close relationship with the powerful solar deity Sekhmet, a lioness.
New research and evidence that the Sphinx is thousands of years older than previously thoughtContrasts what Egyptologists claim about the Sphinx with historical accounts and new research including reanalysis of seismic studies and updates to Schoch's water weathering research and Bauval's Orion Correlation TheoryExamines how the Sphinx is contemporaneous with Göbekli Tepe, aligned with the constellation Leo, and was recarved during the Old Kingdom era of EgyptReveals that the Sphinx was built during the actual historical Golden Age of ancient Egypt, the period known in legend as Zep TepiNo other monument in the world evokes mystery like the Great Sphinx of Giza. It has survived the harsh climate of Egypt for thousands of years and will remain long after our own civilization is gone. According to orthodox Egyptology, the Sphinx was built around 2500 BCE as a memorial to the pharaoh Khafre. Yet this “fact” has scant to no supportive evidence. When was the Sphinx really built and, most importantly, why?In this provocative collaboration from two Egyptology outsiders, Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., and Robert Bauval combine their decades of research to show how the Sphinx is thousands of years older than the conventional Egyptological timeline and was built by a long forgotten pre-Pharaonic civilization. They examine the known history of the Sphinx, contrasting what Egyptologists claim with prominent historical accounts and new research, including updates to Schoch's geological water weathering research and reanalysis of seismic studies. Building on Bauval's Orion Correlation Theory, they investigate the archaeoastronomical alignments of the monuments of the Giza Plateau and reveal how the pyramids and Sphinx were built to align with the constellations of Orion and Leo. Analyzing the evidence for a significantly older construction phase at Giza and the restoration and recarving of the Sphinx during the Old Kingdom era, they assert that the Sphinx was first built by an advanced pre-Pharaonic civilization that existed circa 12,000 years ago on the Giza Plateau, contemporaneous with the sophisticated Göbekli Tepe complex. The authors examine how the monuments at Giza memorialize Zep Tepi, the Golden Age of legend shown here to be an actual historical time period from roughly 10,500 BCE through 9700 BCE.Moving us closer to an understanding of the true age and purpose of the Great Sphinx, Schoch and Bauval provide evidence of an early high civilization witnessed by the Great Sphinx before the end of the last ice age.Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., a tenured faculty member at Boston University, earned his doctorate in geology and geophysics at Yale University in 1983. Known for his research on ancient civilizations, he is the author of numerous books, including Origins of the Sphinx. Catherine Ulissey, a 20-year ballet and Broadway dance veteran, earned her B.A. from Emerson College in 2002. Married to Dr. Schoch in 2010, she enjoys contributing to his research while teaching her art, formerly for Harvard University's dance program and more recently for Wellesley College.Egyptian-born Robert Bauval began studying Egyptology in 1983. His first book, The Orion Mystery, was published in 1994, becoming a number-one bestseller translated into more than 25 languages.

Depressed by the prospect of turning 40 and losing his youthful optimism about politics, Lovett chases Pundit into Wonderland in this week's fully scripted, extremely experimental episode of Lovett or Leave It. America's Cheshire Cat Kyrsten Sinema (Kylie Brakeman) gets Lovett even more lost, while CerberusXM demands ad reads… from Hades! Lovett plays court jester to Red Queen Kamala Harris (Allison Reese), and attempts to answer the Neoliberal Riddles of The Sphinx. Nancy Pelosi the Caterpillar (Michaela Watkins) offers him a nibble of her moderate mushroom. Lovett gains strength from historic Bavarian gay rights advocate Henry Gerber (Sam Pancake), which he's going to need to survive the Unsurrection Tea Party (Danielle Perez, Bryan Safi, Brendan Scannell, Max Silvestri, and Kel Cripe.) In the end, Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor give Lovett the advice he needs to survive until 2024. After that? Well, we're gonna need a bigger mushroom.
