Deep Impact Comet Temple 1 Update

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Happy Birthday Dennis :P

It is coincidence or quantum synchronicity that there are a multitude of green holidays during this month? Methinks not. :D

I watched "Fiddler on the Roof" last night. Hadn't seen the film for years and years. Released 1971. That's 35 years ago. I was 21. I cried through the whole movie. It brought to light situations and emotions that have since been forgotten. That's why we have to be constantly reminded not to forget, and even when constantly reminded we still forget. It was a film that depicted the history of my Tradition, and where it was that my people came from. I forgot. Fascinating and moving. I had forgotten the real plot of the movie and just remembered the songs, because after that film the songs became traditional Jewish Wedding songs. Fascinating. Actually, the film is about the change. the changing of the traditions. It really moved me. To tears. Weeping tears. Weeping is different than crying. Weeping. When the tears come out of the outer corner of your eyes and roll down your cheeks and drip off your chin. Weeping.

Deep Impact Comet Temple 1 Update

Ice layers record comet creation
By Paul Rincon BBC News science reporter, in Houston, Texas

Comets hold materials unchanged since the Solar System's formation
The Deep Impact mission is casting new light on how comets formed and how they shed their ice in space.

The US space agency probe sent a 370kg projectile crashing into Comet Tempel 1 and then studied the plume of debris with its suite of instruments.

Nasa's mission scientists say images from last July's encounter reveal as many as seven different layers on the comet's surface.

Their results were presented at a major science conference in Houston, US.

Team member Mike Belton told the meeting he thought the layering was a sign of how comets like Tempel 1 were built up from lesser objects.

Growing 'snowball'

In the outer part of the early Solar System, smaller bodies called cometesimals collided and merged, gradually piling up to form the larger objects we know as comets.

Similar collisions in the inner Solar System led to a loose accumulation of fragments that largely retained their internal structure.

But primordial material in the outer regions was travelling at relatively lower speeds and contained less solid material.

As the cometesimals hit the surface of a growing comet nucleus, they "flowed" on to the surface, researchers believe.

Deep Impact's scientists think the interior structure of Tempel 1 resembles layers of material piled up on one another - a signature of the process that formed the icy body.

Model conflict

Data from the mission is also helping scientists understand how comets shed water-ice through sublimation, the phenomenon which sees a solid become a gas without first melting.

When comets are heated by the Sun, ice sublimes and is lost to space in a process known as outgassing. Some scientists have proposed that this material is coming from deep below the surface crust of the comet.

But temperature data from Tempel 1's nucleus suggests the material must be lost from only a few centimetres below the surface.

"The normal outgassing of the comet has been modelled by different people as coming from bare ice on the surface to subsurface ice that migrates through pores to escape, or from 40-50m below the surface," Deep Impact's chief scientist Mike A'Hearn told the BBC News website.

"I think it is clear from what we have here that the ice that is subliming is within the upper metre. Whether it's 5cm or 20cm below, I wouldn't want to say; but it's not below the top metre. That rules out a lot of the models."

The new results from the mission were presented here at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, Texas.

7 layers, huh. hmmmm. everybody knows that sevens are dear. hmmmm.

At least there is scientific data that should prove useful to science, and understanding ourselves as humans. Hopefully they won't find a way to use comets as weapons. Hopefully that wasn't their intention. hmmmmm

Green Holidays where everybody gets drunk in the month of greenness. Let us not forget the Carnivales and Mardi Gras, Purim and St. Patricks Day, and there was a Hindu holiday
Celebrated in India and Thailand the same day as Purim in which they celebrate by drinking and covering each other with coloured powder.
"The Hindu festival of Holi marks the start of spring. The colours signify the blossoms of the season. Here children in the Indian city of Amritsar dress as the Hindu god Krishna and his consort Radha."
"The story of Holi: An evil king tried to kill his son, Prahalada, and asks his sister, Holika who he believes is immune to fire, to sit with his son in the fire. But Prahalada survived. Holika died."

'Tis I do believe the same parable as Purim, with evil king and everything.
Somebody I was speaking to recently said I was really stretching it, trying to point out the connections between everything. And that if we just go on our instinct, then we've got nothing to worry about. Then I realized how really really, we don't accept each other for what we are. Really what I'm doing is presenting information. Yes, the information is coloured with my own perception. But also, there is a very viable connection here which is not really acknowledged by humanity as a whole. Everybody just sees their own ways, and ignores the others. Can you imagine my telling Rabbi G that the Hindu Holiday celebrating Spring is the same as Purim? I'd be excommunicated from Judaism, wouldn't I.

As far as Adar goes, I'm seeing the paradox more than the joy. The joy is there, but fleeting.
And religion is really getting to me these days. sighs. Everybody insists that they are right. sighs. So I blog this stuff. I'm a teacher and a seeker. And a researcher. I'm a good researcher.

comet particle :D

whilst musing upon comets I wonderith why I like to muse on comets. just because actually. to feel a part of a greater whole. to be not just me.

don't really know or understand why that is so important to me, but it just is. maybe it isn't good, maybe it is.

Comet Dust Update

Still waiting to sift stardust.

I just finished a Sci Fi novel by Frederick Pohl "Beyond the Blue Event Horizon" in which a comet is described as a Food Factory being composed of CHON - Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen Nigrogen gas. 1983. Frederick Pohl's imagination made it up.

Here is a comet update

Comets 'are born of fire and ice'
By Paul Rincon BBC News science reporter, in Houston, Texas

The first images of a comet particle were revealed last month

Comets are born of fire as well as ice, the first results from the US space agency's (Nasa) Stardust mission show.

In January, Stardust's sample-return capsule landed in Utah, carrying over a million tiny comet grains inside.

Some of these grains contain material that formed at extremely high temperatures, scientists have found.

This is a surprise. Comets formed in the cold, outer-reaches of the early Solar System, and were never exposed to such extreme heating.

The Sun and the planets began forming out of a gaseous cloud called the solar nebula about 4.6 billion years ago.

This "accretion disc" consisted of a hot inner region and a cold outer region where ice was able to survive.

When these grains formed, they were incandescent - they were red or white hot

Dr Donald Brownlee, Stardust chief scientistThe high-temperature minerals found in the Stardust samples may have formed in the inner part, where temperatures exceeded 1,000C.

But something must then have transported them out to the cold, comet-forming region known as the Kuiper Belt.

"These are the hottest minerals found in the coldest place, in the 'Siberia of the Solar System'," said Donald Brownlee, chief scientist on the Stardust mission.

"When these grains formed, they were incandescent - they were red or white hot."

Abundant samples

Details of the analysis were presented here at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, Texas.

The Stardust spacecraft encountered Comet Wild-2 in January 2004. It swept up particles from the frozen body of ice and dust, passing some 240km (149 miles) from the comet's core, or nucleus.

Dr Brownlee said further analysis should resolve some issuesIt then released its sample-return capsule as it flew back to Earth at the beginning of this year.

The US-built capsule touched down in the Utah desert on 15 January. They are the first cometary dust samples ever returned to Earth.

The high-temperature minerals discovered in the Stardust samples are not oddities.

They appear to be abundant, having been found in about one in four of the particles examined so far.

One of these minerals known as forsterite, which condenses at temperatures in excess of 1,120C, has been detected in a comet before.

But other minerals found in the Stardust samples resemble so-called calcium-aluminium inclusions (CAIs), which form at even higher temperatures.

"This raises as many questions as answers. We can't answer them all just yet," said Stardust co-investigator Dr Mike Zolensky.

Longer distances

There are two main possibilities currently being considered to explain the finding.

If the high-temperature minerals formed at the centre of our solar nebula, the molten droplets could have been blasted out to the cold outer region by powerful magnetised jet called the X-wind.

It's perhaps indicative that the X-wind model is a good one

"It's perhaps indicative that the X-wind model is a good one," Caroline Smith, meteorite curator at the Natural History Museum in London, told the BBC News website.

But it means that these bursts must have carried the minerals much further distances than has previously been suggested.

Alternatively, the minerals may have been formed in the hot regions of other stars before finding their way into the solar nebula, where they were incorporated into comets.

"These are fascinating possibilities," said Dr Brownlee.
"In the lab, we can study these at atomic-level resolution and use the chemical, mineralogical and isotopic properties."

He said that analysis of the different isotopes, or forms, of elements in the mineral should resolve where they originated.

The Stones of the Breastplate

Parashat Tetzaveh states the Stones of the Breastplate. I've always been totally fascinated by this, and by stones in general. The energy of these Torah portions sings to me.In the realm of quantum synchronicity, I'm trying to sell my mineral collection. :D
Energy - not religion. Not literal interpretation, although the literal does invoke visions of such splendour that it is hard to remove oneself from them, and that's the connection. It is so hard to study and separate the religion from the spirituality.
The portion is quite explicit. 12 Stones. 4 rows with 3 stones each. Each stone inscribed in such a manner with Hebrew Letters, identifiying the tribes and the Patriarchs. Sephirotic. The bringing down of energy, form, with the letters as the vessels for the light.

Portion Tetzaveh
Second Aliyah
The Breastplate'Make it out of gold thread, sky-blue, dark red and crimson wool, and twined linen.
Set it with four rows of mounted stones
The first of these rows shall contain
a carneliam - Odem
an emerald - Pidtah
and a topaz. - Bareketh
The second row:
carbuncle - Nopehkh
sapphire - Sapir
beryl . - Yahalom
The third row:
jacinth - Leshem
agate - Sh'vo
amethyst. - Aehlamah
The fourth row:
chrysolite - Tarehish
onyx - Shoham
jasper. - Yaspeh.

Rabbi Shimon says the breastplate is the secret of the forty two letter name of
G-d, {which is the Ana B'Koach}, and the seventy two letter name of G-d, which are the letters Moses used to part the Red Sea. I remember a lecture in which the Breastplate was described as a type of computer. Certain letters lit up while other letters stayed dark, thusly answering the questions posed by the High Priest, the Kohan. Here's Rabbi Shimon from
"Come and see: when those letters of these two names were lodged there, in the fold of the breastplate, their power illuminated the other letters that were engraved on the stones of the breastplate - the letters of the names of the twelve tribes - lighting up some and leaving others dark."
The Ari talks about reflected light, and the concept of the inter integrating of the Sephirot, which is the energy of Adar. The Ari says it is about the coming down of Chesed of Yesod of Binah to Yesod of Zeir Anpin to Chesed of Netzach and Chesed of Hod. Netzach and Hod being Moses and Ahron. What is even weirder is that I understand. sighs.

I've been reading old sci fi again. And I just started researching Aborigines again, because of the Dreaming. The aborigines have always said they were the First Ones. They have the Dreaming, which is the veil removed from the false reality. Amazing. The Aborigines sing the words which form the true reality.

Exodus is Shemot, Names, in Hebrew. It is all about the names. hmmmmming some more.

Here is the BBC story on Encedalus, which has the wrong name by the way. I'm good with this shemot stuff. I may not be a good housekeeper, but I do have other gifts. Bruce {of the Springsteens} knows. There's a line in one of his songs ' and in the darkness of your own room your mother calls you by your true name'.

Saturn moon 'may have an ocean'

This false-colour image shows the extent of the active region (Image: Nasa/JPL/SSI)

Saturn's moon Enceladus could harbour a liquid water ocean beneath its icy crust, according to data sent back by the Cassini spacecraft.

Until Cassini reached Saturn, the tiny moon had received little attention.
But Enceladus is now the focus of intensive study following the discovery that it is geologically active.

Enceladus may possess reservoirs of near-surface liquid water that erupt to form geysers - and where there's water, there may be life, scientists argue.

These jets have been observed erupting from a "hot spot" in the moon's south polar region.
Scientists on the mission have likened them to the kinds of geysers found in Yellowstone National Park in the US.
Click here to see how activity may be generated on Enceladus

"We realise that this is a radical conclusion - that we may have evidence for liquid water within a body so small and so cold," said Dr Carolyn Porco, Cassini imaging team leader at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, US.

"However, if we are right, we have significantly broadened the diversity of Solar System environments where we might possibly have conditions suitable for living organisms. It doesn't get any more exciting than this."


Very exciting. Very Sci Fi. I really hope they're blue.

Encompassing spirituality is a process, a change, an alteration. We exist to evolve. The whole universe is in flux. The energies are shifting. It is an honour to be a part of it. A lot of the teachings during Adar deal with the aspect of not knowing. It is impossible to know in the way of true knowing behind the veil, where we are, as it were. And it has to remain hidden, because that is part of the equation. Paradox. Are we really part of some super computer? Sometimes I muse about. As did Douglas Adams. How real is real? Are Nuclear weapons real? The old after the bomb drops movies have been playing again. In nuclear holicaust, there is no redemption. Mushroom cloud and radiation wind, every cell in your body becomes infested with radiation, the nuclear night or nuclear winter , which Twilight Zone was so good at depicting, and all that other stuff. And ya know about the cockroaches.

Is it real?

This US Ports and Dubai has the aspect of Theater of the Absurd. None of it makes any sense. I've got the stories on the blog. If you read back, you see the sense it doesn't make. It has everything to do with money, and nothing to do with anything else. We're being sold.

Here's BBC dated March 6

Second Dubai firm in US port link

ISS suppliers services at Baltimore and other US portsA Dubai-owned firm is already providing shipping services in the United States, it has emerged.

Inchcape Shipping Services, whose clients include the US Navy, has been owned since January by the United Arab Emirates investment firm Istithmar.

Fellow Dubai firm Dubai Ports World has agreed to cede control of US ports acquired in its takeover of P&O to a "US entity" after a political outcry.

The US Congress threatened to block the takeover on security grounds.

Here's today's story

Bush warns over port row 'signal'

New York is one of the six key ports embroiled in the disputePresident George W Bush has said opposition in the US to a deal giving a Dubai-based company control of six US ports sends a bad signal to allies.

Mr Bush said the United Arab Emirates was a "valued and strategic partner" in the US-led war on terrorism.

Dubai Ports World has agreed to cede control of US ports acquired in its takeover of P&O to a "US entity".

Its move followed an outcry among US lawmakers worried the deal would create a greater threat of terrorism.

But it has now emerged that a second Dubai-owned firm is already providing shipping services in the US.


We know that dubble u can't pronounce the word nuclear. And wouldn't it be just that much irony if the one who couldn't say the name is the one who caused it to be. Just musing. Just musing.

Saturn's moons are giving birth

Saturn's rings have their own atmosphere

Saturn's Moon Enceladus South Pole with stripes

Saturn's Moon Phoebe

A while ago the Cassini probe passed Saturn's moon Phoebe, and there was a story that the atmosphere was methane gas and there might be methane breathing life forms. Then the story disappeared.
In August 2005, BBC had the first news of Enceladus

Saturn moon delights and baffles
By Jonathan Amos BBC News science reporter

The tiger stripes mark the southern polar region of Enceladus (Nasa/JPL/SSI)

Space scientists say their discoveries about Saturn's moon Enceladus are stunning, if just a little baffling.
Using the instrument-packed Cassini probe, they have confirmed that the 500km-wide world has an atmosphere.
They have also seen a "hotspot" at the icy moon's south pole, which is riven with cracks dubbed "tiger stripes".
But the US and European scientists told a London meeting they could not yet explain fully the energetic processes driving all the activity on Enceladus.

Breaking news is that water has been found on Saturn's moon Enceladus.
I muse that Saturn's moons are giving birth, and that the changes we interpret as climate related are really cosmic universe changes. I just KNOW that Phoebe has methane breathing life forms, I just KNOW it. And we're taught again and again and again that water = life. So that fact that NASA is even releasing this news about Enceladus is thought provoking. Read between the lines.

While part of me believes that the money for the Space Program should be used to clean up the planet, I love the pictures, and I love the cosmos, and otherwise, how would we know? Science has replaced spirituality, even though there is a point at which they intertwine these days.

I think it is great. I wanna meet an Enceladusian. :D

How 'bout you? Maybe they know Peace. That would be worth it.

I think they're Blue :D

The Colour Green and, Is it really easy being green?

Whilst out driving this morning, the colur green was impressively manifest.

We're getting that spring green here in Florida now. What a colour.

Green is not a primary colour. It is formed by mixing blue and yellow = green. Metaphysically green is the colour of healing, of new beginnings, of balance (green is central column in kabbalah) and calmness. Green is always a safe colour to use in energy healing - green never hurts. Green is associated with all growth, as we have thriving chlorophyll and photosynthesis on the planet. In chakra therapy, green is the colour of the heart chakra, although most clairvoyants perceive heart chakra as pink. In today's society, materialistically, green is associated with ecology and money. hmmm.

Seeing colour is the perception of the wavelengths of light. The reflected colour is what we see. The retina in our eyes contains rods and cones. The rods perceive black, white and shades of grey. The cones are the colour receptor cells. There are 3 basic types of cone cells - blue, green and red. We perceive green by the cones processing short and long wavelengths of light. This is how it goes with wavelengths. Green's visable wavelength is 510nm. Grass appears green because all other visible spectrum colours are absorbed, leaving the green wavelength reflected, so it appears green. White reflects all wavelengths while black absorbs all wavelengths.

Since seeing is a sense and a perception, some scientists say that colour doesn't really exist except in our minds. The retina and the rods and cones relay information to the brain which interprets it. Different cultures see different colours differently. How's that for a paradox of the false reality. If someone were to ask me if you could smell a colour, I would have to answer yes. Green especially has smell associated to it. Green things have scent, from the grass to pond scum, which is algae.

The brain can recognize more varieties of the colour green than any other colour.

What's green? Trees, plants, cat's eyes. Veggies. The sun. Lots of cool stuff. And, let us not forget those little green glowing pigs.

Cool green websites.

Is it easy being green? Or is it just part of the false reality.

hmmming in green and eating lettuce, lots of lettuce. green food doesn't make you full.

Gimmel is Jupiter

Whether or not the False Reality - How can it Be?

We're in Pisces, paradox abounds, the false reality appears real.
Wrap your brain around that, would ya.
I need to post these news stories. Mostly for myself, as a record of what happened, that ol' history being written thingie and all that. But I do admit - where dost the paradox of the joy manifest?

The first of the stories is that Dana Reeves is dead. When I read the headline, my thought was - that can't be. But it is. Death is the biggest of the false realities, so the spiritual modalities say. But nonetheless. This is a whoa. She's with Christopher again.

Omri Sharon´s Calendar Reveals Corruption in Kadima
By Hillel Fendel
The publication of Omri Sharon's appointment calendar "has exposed to all the way in which Kadima was formed. No honest person can identify with a movement with these values," says Likud MK Erdan.

Omri Sharon, son and behind-the-scenes schemer of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, was instrumental in many official appointments - with the help of Ehud Olmert and other top Kadima figures.

Channel Ten exposed documents and an appointment calendar of former MK Omri Sharon, showing the extent of his involvement in appointments to governmental and official bodies. Ministers Olmert, Sha'ul Mofaz, Tzippy Livny and others were involved as well.

And last but not least, Jupiter has another red spot. Fascinating, because Jupiter is the ruling planet for Adar.
From BBC News
Jupiter growing another red spot

Red Jr was formed from several storms that merged

The Great Red Spot that has dominated the planet Jupiter's cloudtops for hundreds of years now has a companion.

The gas giant is growing another red spot, which US space agency (Nasa) astronomers have nicknamed "Red Jr".

Both red spots are actually raging storms in Jupiter's cloud layer, but scientists don't yet know how they get their characteristic brick colour.

Red Jr is about half the size of the Great Red Spot and almost exactly the same colour, Science@Nasa reports.

The new storm goes by the official name of Oval BA. It was first observed in 2000, when three smaller spots collided and merged.

Changing colours

At first, Oval BA remained white - the same colour as the storms that combined to create it. But over the past few months, it has started to change in appearance.

"The oval was white in November 2005, it slowly turned brown in December 2005, and red a few weeks ago," said Christopher Go, an amateur astronomer from the Philippines who has been observing Red Jr.

Some scientists believe a similar merger to the one that created Red Jr may have created the Great Red Spot, which is twice as wide as our planet and at least 300 years old.

Dr Glenn Orton, an astronomer at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory who studies storms on Jupiter and other giant planets, said: "This is convincing. We've been monitoring Jupiter for years to see if Oval BA would turn red - and it finally seems to be happening."

No one is quite sure why the Great Red Spot is red.

One theory is that the storm dredges material from deep beneath Jupiter's cloudtops and lifts it to high altitudes. Here, ultraviolet rays from the Sun turn colour-changing compounds (or chromophores) red.
Oval BA may have strengthened enough to do the same, scientists say.
If Jupiter is being active during the month it rules, we are being effected by the energy for sure.
In theoretical astrophysics, the theory is that it isn't just cause ---> effect, it has to be effect -----> cause -----> effect in order to define the singularity. Kabbalah says the same thing, there has to be a midpoint between two extremes in order for any type of definition to occurr. Musing again, to try to believe.

Time Traveling to the nano singularity :D

Time traveling into the singularity during yesterday's Torah portion of Termuah was joy.

At lot was revealed to me, B'H.

One I will mention is that the Ark, Aron Habrit in Hebrew, is a feminine symbol. The Ark is the only in the Holy of Holies.

Ha. No wonder they're so afraid of women in Orthodox Judaism, because they know we're the quintessential keepers of the secret of the Ark. Ha.

My blogger friends seem to have stopped blogging. I'm not.

This is a description of what happens to me when I enter the energy of Torah. Receiving Torah on Shabbat is a 3 fold experience; the scroll itself, the sound of the oral reading and the written word. This Shabbat I chose to do full service, just because. The first sign that I'm entering the zone is that the words on the page go all blurry. Then they lift up from the page. Then you know you're in. What an experience. It is the best high ever. Then I enter this state of joy, where there is no lack. It is the joy within the awe. When I look around at my surroundings, the veil is visible and you need to see through it. The colours are different. The sounds are different. It is the seeing through . It is fabulous. Phew. I had to eat. Food brings you down. You can't stay in that place being physical. Phew. It is an experience of total quantum synchronicty. Everything interconnects.

Takes me a while to come down when that happens to me. I haven't had a Shabbat like this one in a couple of months, becuase me myself and I have been off the wall, or on the wall, as the cause may be. I'm full of appreciation.


I'm trying to stop posting news so much. Here is a story which cannot be ignored. Israel is the marker of global political consciousness, for whatever reason.

Olmert´s Plan: Destroy Most Yesha Communities 1

7:13 Mar 05, '06 / 5 Adar 5766By Hillel Fendel

Ehud Olmert plans to withdraw tens of thousands of Jews from Judea/Samaria. The right-wing warns: The areas will be taken over by Hamas, leaving the army defenseless.

The plan, as outlined last night by Kadima Knesset candidate Avi Dichter, a former head of the General Security Service (Shabak), calls for razing most of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and relocating their residents in those that remain.

The new Kadima plan would leave Israel with four or five isolated pockets of Israeli presence: a narrow finger 20 kilometers long from Rosh HaAyin to Ariel in the Shomron; parts of the Jordan Valley; and strips to the north, east, and south of Jerusalem. The rest of Judea and Samaria would become what many politicians have lately referred to as Hamastan.T

The communities that are to remain, according to the plan Olmert wishes to implement if he wins the elections, have long been mentioned as the "settlement blocs" of Ariel, Maaleh Adumim and Gush Etzion. Karnei Shomron-Kedumim and the Jordan Valley have, occasionally, also been included in what might remain Israeli territory.

Among the communities to be erased under Ehud Olmert's plan would be the following:In the Binyamin Regional Council, north of Jerusalem: Shilo, Eli, Shvut Rachel, N’vei Tzuf, Psagot, Maaleh Michmas, and Maaleh Levonah.

In eastern Gush Etzion: Tekoa, Nokdim (El-David), Maaleh Amos and Meitzad.

In Samaria Council and northern Samaria: Kedumim, Itamar, Yitzhar, Elon Moreh, Har Bracha, Avnei Cheifetz, Mevo Dotan, Hermesh and Tapuach.

In southern Judea: Adora, Pnei Hever, Maon, Susia, Otniel, Negohot, and Mitzpeh Shalem.

Avigdor Lieberman, head of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, sharply criticized the Kadima plan. "All talk of additional retreats in Yesha is irresponsible," he said, "as it strengthens Hamas, weakens Israel, and encourages terrorism." He warned that mortar shelling attempts would soon start from the areas under discussion, "just as occurred in the areas near Gaza such as Ashkelon."


No matter which way you perceive this, even knowing that it is a manifestation of the vanity of false reality, it isn't a good thing.

Torture and Death of Jew Deepen Fears in France

Published: March 5, 2006

BAGNEUX, France, March 3 — Two strips of red-and-white police tape bar the entrance to the low-ceilinged pump room where a young Jewish man, Ilan Halimi, spent the last weeks of his life, tormented and tortured by his captors and eventually splashed with acid in an attempt to erase any traces of their DNA.

But it is clear that plenty of people did know, both that Mr. Halimi was being tortured and that he was Jewish. The police, according to lawyers with access to the investigation files, think at least 20 people participated in his abduction and the subsequent, amateurish negotiations for ransom. His captors told his family that if they did not have the money, they should "go and get it from your synagogue," and later contacted a rabbi, telling him, "We have a Jew."

The horrifying death has stunned France, which has Europe's largest Muslim and largest Jewish populations. Last weekend, tens of thousands of people marched against racism and anti-Semitism in Paris, joined by the interior minister, Nicholas Sarkozy, and smaller marches took place in several other French cities, including Marseille.


I admit, I don't know how to see the joy of the awe when this is going on in the world.

The False Reality, The Ark of the Covenant

It is 4 Adar, and everything is presenting itself within a different perspective.

For me, this energy shift was palpable, and I love that.

The negative trait of Adar which must be rectified is the vision of the false reality as the true reality. The false reality has done a very good job of making itself appear as totally real, as if there were nothing more. This energy will present itself during the month of Adar, it is what we have to beware of, and transmute into joy. I am seeing it myself already.

The thing I love about kabbalah, and studying the energy which comes with the months, is that you get a heads up. Sometimes, as it was for me during Shevat, one succumbs to the not so pleasant side.
But I like Adar. I like that it is a month of paradoxes. Musable Metaphors abound. I do better with the water signs.

When I think of Joy, I think
joie joie pleurs de joie.

le colouer de joie c'est l'orange.

This week's Torah portion, Terumah, is one of my personal favourites. It is the portion in which the sacred ritual items are named, and Moses is given instructions on how to construct the Ark.
I love this stuff.
Gold, Silver, Copper
Sky blue wool, dark red wool, wool dyed with crimson
goat's wool
reddened ram's skins, blue processed skins
acacia wood
the sweet smelling incense
and sardonyxes
and other precious stones
for the ephod and breastplate.

I love the colours. I love to muse.

And the cherubs on top of the Ark. The cherubs and their faces and their wings. The symbolism of the two cherubs which face each other is the same energy as the sympol of the 2 fish for Picses.
The Sephirotic metaphor is that Yesod of Binah is completed. Only when Yesod of Binah is completed can Yesod of Chochmah become manifest. The manifestation occurrs as Malchut of Binah. (The Ari - not me :) ) The is the inter integrating of the Sephirot, the number 100, which is the gematria for the month.

Muse on colours and cherubs and joy.

The Month of Adar - Pisces

Hallelujah, we're into Adar, the month of Joy, B'H.
Orange is the colour for Joy, but as it happens Adar takes the colour of springish green, for central column.
We made it. :D An awful lot happened during Shevat.
I admit that I didn't do all that well with the energy of Shevat. Or, I think I didn't. I was off the wall for a while there. But, now we are 1 Adar, a new energy, everything moving right along.

Adar is the month of Joy.
That's good.
The Hebrew letter for the month of Adar is the Kuf, or Quph, coming right after the Tzadik of Shevat, the 19th letter of the Aleph Bet, gematria 100.

Adar is the 12th month, central column, air , of the water signs. Even though it is the 12th sign, it is not spiritually the end of the cycle, but rather the intermingling of all which came before. The birth and death anniversary of Moses, Moshe Rabeinu, is 7 Adar. Moses was born and died on the same day. The holiday during the month of Adar is Purim, which is a holiday of Joy. Queen Esther and Haman are the main figures of Purim. Queen Esther saved the Jews of Persia from the evil Haman. Purim is know as the holiday of hidden miracles, and the Scroll of Esther, Megillah Esther, is read. One dresses up in costumes and masks during Purim, and you're supposed to get drunk. :D Purim is on 14th Adar.

During leap years in the Hebrew calendar, which occurr 7 times in 19 years, Adar II is added on at the end. When this happens, 7 Adar, Moses's death anniversary is observed during Adar I, but Purim is celebrated in Adar II. 5766 is not a leap year.

The letter kuf is made up of 2 letters, the reish and the zayin. It is the only Hebrew letter which goes below the line, as Lamed is the only letter which goes above the line. {Note - spelled Qof on this chart}

The letter is about the descent of the soul into the lower planes, and the ability to transmute darkness into light. The greatest joy comes from light revealed.

The letters zayin and reish together spell Zeir, crown, and Zar, foreign. Reish Zayin spells Raz, mystery. The meaning of the name of the letter itself, kuf means kof, which is monkey, the symbol of laughter. Kuf also means the 'eye of the needle'. So Adar is about experiencing the infinite essence of the light of Creation entering into the finite context of physical reality, and being revealed through the touching and connection between souls, and the soul opening up totally to the light of the Divine which encompasses All.

The symbol for Adar is Pisces - Dagim in Hebrew - the fish. The sages teach that because the fish live in water, the fish is a creature of the supernal worlds, the hidden worlds, that became manifest in the physical, because water is life.

Fish, water, pisces, life, connection to the eye of the needle, which is that point of tzim tzum of nothingness - before nothingness becomes everythingness, the vanity and ego of the false reality, and the connection between souls. Cool.

Rabbi G gives some great information on the letter Kuf, so I'm just going to quote and paraphrase, but make sure to give credit where credit is due. Rabbi G is one of my main sources of teaching knowledge now. I took me a long time to be able to understand him.

"The most fundamental significance in Torah of the number 19, the ordinal value of the kuf, is the 19 year cycle of the moon in relation to the sun, the basis of the Hebrew calendar. The moon represents the female figure, the secret of the sefirah of malchut personified by Eve (in Hebrew Chavah = 19). The sun represents the male figure, the bestower of light, whereas the moon is the receiver of light. "

Just as in the 3 column system of kabbalah, the male principal, right column, is represented as the positve + pole, and the female, left column, is the negative pole -.

The gematria of the kuf, 100, is the perfection of 10 x 10, all the sefirot interincluded.

The sense for the month of Adar is laughter - the laughter of joy. I like joy. I can relate to joy, whilst I cannot relate to happiness. Two different energies. Two different concepts.

The organ for Adar is the spleen. "Our sages state explicitly ' the spleen laughs'. At first sight, this appears most paradoxical, for the spleen is considered the seat of the black humour, the source of all states of depression and despair "

In Pranic Healing we learn that the spleen is always dirty and has to be cleaned constantly, because it attracts gunky stuff, and holds it.

"The phenomonon of Adar derives from the unknowable head, which in itself is paradoxical. It represents states of existential transformation and metamorphosis."

Being and Nothingness, John Paul Sartre, the quintessential extentialist philosophy work,


Kafka's Metamorphosis, of which I shall never forget the first line 'and Gregor Ivanovich awoke one morning to find himself suddenly transformed into a giant cockroach.'
