This is a preliminary video featuring M. Palitz discussing what we can learn about living a worthwhile life from some of the oldest literature and even some contemporary literature. Mr. Palitz starts by looking a modern symbolism and how these symbols help make managing a mass of data, or as he like to call it a mass of reality, manageable. Using his own experience he then leads into learning about the symbolic nature of the very early texts of western civilization. I find it interesting that through these early narratives we can also derive a great deal if insight into how the people of times past have lived their lives. Hidden in the metaphors and stories are the clues to societies and the great cultures that came from the early tribes.  

Mr. Palitz is looking for feedback, so feel free to give your opinion on the ideas in the video. 

These posts could also go into my Science and Nature collection because they talk a lot about dreams and other phenomena. However, because much of his research is based in ancient texts and gives details of life in the distant past I am putting it in the History and Archaeology collection 
 
Welcome to episode 1 of Who Speaks For The Ancestors. This episode is an introduction and also goes over capturing meaning in symbols, pictures and narrative. These are all preliminary videos to the full series that will be produced at a later date. Give us your feedback and you will help shape the narrative and direction of this series.

Tablet Inscribed in Akkadian with a Fragment of the Babylonian Flood Story of Epic of Athrasis
I believe the Epic of Athrasis  is also known as the Atrahasis Epic.
Tablet III of the Atrahasis Epic contains a flood story that was adapted into the Epic of Gilgamesh. I mention this because the Epic of Gilgamesh plays a big part in many of the lectures of the new video series I am helping with “Who Speaks For The Ancestors” by M. Palitz

+Keith C. Perry Me too. I thought flying spiders and scorpions were enough material for nightmares. But this is real. And I won't think about a beak snapping shut in my face.

We are getting a way from the U.S.A. in this post because I thought it was such a clear example of a recumbent fold. The picture is from a location in Cornwall, England, UK

What is evil? 
 
If you had the opportunity to feed harmless bugs into a coffee grinder, would you enjoy the experience? Even if the bugs had names, and you could hear their shells painfully crunching? And would you take a perverse pleasure from blasting an innocent bystander with an excruciating noise?

These are just some of the tests that Delroy Paulhus uses to understand the “dark personalities” around us. Essentially, he wants to answer a question we all may have asked: why do some people take pleasure in cruelty? Not just psychopaths and murderers – but school bullies, internet trolls and even apparently upstanding members of society such as politicians and policemen.
Why are some people extraordinarily selfish, manipulative, and unkind? David Robson asks the scientist delving into the darkest sides of the human mind.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Tucked away among northwestern New Mexico's sandstone cliffs and buttes are the remnants of an ancient civilization whose monumental architecture and cultural influences have been a source of mystery for years.

One of the archaeologists said "Many of the features associated with this landscape — the communications and road systems that once linked the canyon to great house sites located as far away as southeast Utah and which are still being identified to this day — have been damaged by the construction of oil and gas roads, pipelines and well pads."

My G+ stream is like following a virtual museum, Community Television, Video, Social Media, G+, & Dogs
Introduction

I am working on two community Television programs. One is about local history, places, and events and the other is about local dog culture. I am offering Sponsors the opportunity to have me as a Community Outreach Ambassador for the Long Beach, CA. area, Southern California, or to help connect with a modern dog culture. I can be your Community Liaison and friendly local spokesperson.

Some of my interests include behavior, history, art, geology, archaeology, and nature. Many people think I like country music because I wear a cowboy hat, but I really prefer classical music.

I am also interested in building websites, online marketing, and creating media. Especially video. I enjoy doing both online and offline video. If you are interested in talking about dogs, online learning, making websites, marketing, or media add me to your circle and let the conversation begin.
