Fried Lobster Jacuzzi 🦞 JAMAICAN FOOD 🇯🇲 Beach Party at Hellshire Beach

Another beautiful day in Jamaica – and this was a day of fun, beauty and unforgettable lobsters and seafood in Jamaica. We began the day in Port Antonio, Jamaica. We then drove all the way through the gorgeous Blue Mountains, in search of coffee, and on our way to Kingston. We met up with Matt and Matt and had an amazing Jamaican seafood feast at Hellshire Beach. #Jamaica #JamaicanFood #streetfood Blue Mountains – One of the things we really wanted to do in Jamaica is at least see and experience the world famous Blue Mountains. So we drove on the less traveled road through an amazing Blue Mountain pass. The beauty was spectacular, and though we tried to stop at a few places, but most things were closed. So anyway, we made it across to the other side and had coffee at Café Blue in Irish Town. Blue Mountain Coffee – 500 JMD ($3.62). After arriving to Kingston, we dropped off our car and met back up with Matt Robinson: https://www.instagram.com/jamaicafood… who then drove to Hellshire Beach – not forgetting some ackee and saltfish and Amanda’s Mother made – it was perfect! Screechies Seafood and Bar – Hellshire Beach is a popular Beach destination in Jamaica, near to Kingston. It’s known for beach parties, water sports, and lots of fried seafood. It’s just an amazing happy Jamaican food place, and if you love seafood, it’s a place you’ve got to visit. We headed to Screechies Seafood and Bar, a restaurant off the main strip of restaurants wich a small private beach and known for their seafood. They made a huge fried lobster jacuzzi, and both escovitch fish and Jamaican steamed fish. The seafood meal and party was incredible – surrounded by great food and great people! Total price – 29,500 JMD ($213.85) for everything, 8 people I think.

Evidence of Stone Melting / Geopolymer Technology?

Hey guys, I am at the Koh Ker Pyramid in Cambodia, and today we are going to look at a mysterious stone technology called Knobs.You see this protrusion here,this is very fascinating to see. Why does it have a projection like a door knob? If you look at the neighboring blocks, they don’t have this protrusion, but this block does. What is the purpose of this knob, why was it created more than a 1000 years ago? Perhaps you may think this is just an exception. So when I explore this level of the pyramid, this is not the ground level, I am walking on one of the steps of this stepped pyramid, again look at this block. See that block which has a plant growing on top of it, that is the block which has a knob. It clearly has a protrusion, a bump facing outside. Why were these created, what is the purpose of them? Let me show you another Temple in India, this is the famous Brihadeeswarar Temple in Thanjavur. This is also built around the same time as the Koh Ker Pyramid, this is also at least a thousand years old, this is also a Shiva temple, and this is also a Pyramid, some fascinating coincidences, even though both of them are separated by about 3000 miles. But perhaps the biggest coincidence is their giant lingams, the lingam at Thanjavur temple is 13 feet tall from the ground, and it also goes underground for many feet, and remember I talked about the Giant Crystal Lingam which existed in Koh Ker Pyramid. But let us go back to the mystery of knobs. We are able to see knobs in this temple as well. I shot this in 2013, because it has some very very intriguing details. This is all solid granite, huge blocks perfectly fit together, you cannot even insert a needle between the blocks, they look as though they are molded and assembled. But look at the knobs. I noticed something strange about how they were set up. If the walls have no carvings or inscriptions, then we can see a lot of knobs. Here, look, you can see a cluster of knobs on these walls. The entire wall is full of blocks with knobs. But if the wall was designated to have carvings or inscriptions, then there are no knobs at all. They are perfectly smooth. The more I observe this, the more I find this to be true. Another fascinating detail, look at this wall. No knobs at the eye level, but the stones with knobs are used where people would not normally see them. It appears that the stone blocks with knobs were used in unimportant places, as though they are defective pieces from a mass manufacturing company. What do I mean by this? Today, let us say you want to build a nice big house and you mass produce 50,000 bricks and you end up with about 500 bricks which are deformed or defective, what would you do? You don’t want to throw away 500 bricks, so you would use them in unimportant places or in places where they won’t be seen. This is exactly what we see in this temple. The blocks with knobs are used in Unimportant or places where they won’t be noticed. And you may think, wow that’s a lot of knobs, but the stone blocks with knobs just make up 1 or 2% of the temple. And these knobs are not only found in Cambodia and India, they are found in Egypt, Peru, Turkey and in almost all ancient megalithic sites. You can see these knobs in any ancient site, even though the purpose of this has been a mystery, until now. Mainstream archeology gives a strange answer to this, experts say these knobs were cut, while the stones were quarried. Why? So they could put ropes underneath the stones and lift them. But when we carefully observe the position of the knobs, many of them are not symmetrical, if you take this stone for example, and put a rope underneath these knobs, the stone would tip forward or to the side.Many of the knobs are not symmetrical and it would be impossible to use them for putting ropes underneath and lifting them. A lot of these knobs are also too small, you cannot put ropes underneath this knob for example, the knob is just too small, even to put your finger underneath and lift it.Archeologists don’t have an answer for this.And then, there is another question that should have popped into your head already. If these knobs were cut for the purpose of lifting, , then all the stone blocks should have these knobs. But they don’t. Why don’t all the blocks have these knobs? The mainstream explanation makes no sense. This explanation is quite simply, wrong. Let us take a look at it from the engineering perspective. Why we were these knobs created?

 

Secret Science Hidden behind Ancient Holes? Mystery of Preah Vihear Temple

Hey guys, in the last video, I showed you strange holes drilled into many of the stone blocks of this 1000-year-old temple known as Preah Vihear in Cambodia. There are many different sizes of holes cut into the rocks, and the purpose of these holes has been a mystery, until now. To decode this, we need to look at these ancient floor tiles. Each tile is a square slab of sandstone, but in the center, there is a circular hole. Surprisingly, these holes are not present in one or 2 slabs, or even some tiles, this is what we see in this entire area. Each square tile is of the same size as every other tile, and there is one hole drilled in the center of every tile. Were ancient builders mass manufacturing tiles, just like what we do today? How else can we explain this kind of replication? You can see that the entire area covered with tiles, has the exact same feature. If you walk on them looking at these tiles, it is like walking through a mass manufacturing setup. But why was the hole in the center necessary? Archeologists give a very simple explanation. Stone blocks are not easily moveable, because we cannot get a grip on them. So when ancient builders quarried stone blocks from mountains, they made holes, so that builders could insert a stick and move them easily. In fact, there are documentaries that explain how multiple holes were drilled in rectangular blocks, so they could be moved by men easily. This seems like a convincing explanation, But do all stone blocks have these holes? Let us go to another area in the same temple complex and look at the floor tiling. Look at these stone blocks on the ground, no holes on them at all, but look what they have done to the surface. Here you can see this work, this is to make sure that you don’t fall. (Rug for grip). Here, here and look.. all the way. This is all grip. This entire place is made of these rocks, where the surface was deliberately made rough. They either used sandpaper, acid treatment or something strange device to make it rough. This is incredible. Yes, today we have rugs, even archeology department uses rugs or carpets so people don’t fall, but this rug is 1000-year-old guys, and it will last for eternity, unlike the modern rugs which will disintegrate after 10 years. This is why we love ancient builders right, they built things that even time can’t destroy But if ancient builders had to put holes in the floor tiles in that area, why do these blocks don’t have holes? How were these blocks moved without the holes? I am not satisfied with the theory of mainstream archeologists; the holes must have a different purpose. When I examine the walls, the holes are very, very strange and go against these standard explanations. In documentaries, we are told that the holes are drilled through the blocks and wooden sticks are driven through them, and two people would push or pull on both sides. However, none of these holes go through the entire depth. They are very shallow, and I doubt if they are deep enough even to put a stick on them and make them move. To facilitate movement, holes must be drilled symmetrically, ie., either on the ends or at the very center. But the holes in these blocks are weird, there are a bunch of holes in one corner, while the other corner has no holes at all. Some blocks have a lot of holes, and other similar-sized blocks have very little number of holes or even no holes at all. And one more thing, these multiple holes defeat the purpose, the temple walls are supposed to be ornate and are supposed to look good. The holes actually make them look bad. So the holes definitely served some other important purpose. But we don’t know what it is. But the mystery gets deeper as I explore another temple in the complex. There are some very very strange and unexplainable features. Look, these are not small little holes, they are huge, gigantic holes, not just one or two, but a series of them and they are drilled on the floor. These holes are too large for driving any stick and moving them, these holes had a very different purpose. And why so many holes? Remember I showed you similar holes on the bedrock of Ellora Caves in India? Ellora caves also has these weird holes on the ground. Those holes were deliberately made for ventilation purposes for the secret underground city which lies underneath.

Ancient Koh Ker Pyramid reveals Advanced Technology?

Hey guys, today we are going to investigate an ancient lingam which is 30 feet tall, yes Three Zero (30) feet tall and is made of transparent crystal. And this lingam is not new, it was created more than a thousand years ago, by Ancient Hindus and placed inside a temple, in the middle of a jungle in Cambodia. And this is the Hindu temple which has that crystal lingam. At first glance, I am surprised because it does not look like a Hindu temple at all, it is eerily similar to the Mayan Pyramids, but archeologists confirm that this is a Hindu temple which was dedicated to Lord Shiva. Archeologists have also found inscriptions which talk about a Massive Lingam placed here. Normally, I would admire the structure and analyze the size and shape of the Pyramid, but I am cannot wait to see the Crystal Lingam. I realize that the original stairs are completely ruined now and have become unusable, but I think there should be more set of stairs on the other side’s as well. But when I began walking around the Pyramid, I realize I am wrong, the original stairs were built only on one side of the Pyramid, and there are no stairs on the other sides, they are all made of solid stone walls. At the back of the Pyramid, I see a strange ritual being performed. There is a small temple here, Perhaps the lingam is at this place, but when I reach there, I am surprised to see Cambodians worshipping the statue of an Elephant. I ask them where I can see the giant lingam, Cambodians do not speak much English, but they point to the top of the Pyramid. I find modern wooden stairs which go up the Pyramid, so I begin climbing it. A 30 feet tall lingam made of crystal, installed at the top of an ancient Pyramid ? This would be a spectacular sight to see. The stones of the Pyramid are calling me, they were cut and installed here more than a thousand years ago, but my goal is to lay my eyes on the Giant Crystal lingam. I finally reach the top, and I am deeply disappointed, because the crystal lingam is not visible, but I see a destroyed temple structure with giant broken carvings. There is just an empty chamber with wooden barriers protecting it. However, something tells me to climb up on these broken stone blocks. This is risky, but I feel like I may find something in this area. And then I find something truly extraordinary. A hole, circular hole, situated exactly in the middle of the Pyramid. Look at the giant walls built all around it, and the remnants of a square base, there was definitely a giant cylindrical lingam placed in this hole. This is not a theory, Archeologists and Historians confirm that a massive lingam was once installed here, and no one knows how it mysteriously vanished. The Cambodian Government has strictly prohibited anyone from getting any closer, But I need to take a closer look at the hole itself, so I take my zoom lens and climb up to find a vantage point. From some angles, it looks like a shallow hole with only a few feet depth. I try to see it from a different angle, and I could see that the hole was deeper. But when I tried to look at the hole almost from straight up, Look at these pictures I shot, this is not just a hole, this is a deep hole, clearly laid with neatly cut stones which, I mean we cannot even see the end of the hole. How deep is this hole? Is it possible that this hole goes all the way to the bottom of the Pyramid? Egyptian pyramids like the Great Pyramid of Giza have elaborate secret chambers inside the Pyramid. Does this Pyramid also have chambers inside? In ancient Hindu temples, people still worship Crystal Lingams, these are called Spatika Lingams. I have seen some big Crystal Lingams, but certainly a 30 feet tall transparent lingam would have been one of a kind, making it the largest crystal lingam in the world. Look at the positioning of the original ancient stairs: 1000 years ago, worshippers would have climbed this pyramid using these stairs and reached the top to see this giant lingam. They would have only seen 15 feet of this lingam, because the rest of it, another 15 feet would go under the floor level. Archeologists do confirm that there was once a 15 feet tall lingam here, because there are inscriptions found in this area which confirm this and remember, I have already shown you that Lingams are not just the visible part we see above the floor level, it is at least twice the size because half of the cylinder is buried underneath. And look at this hole, there should be absolutely no doubt that it goes at least 15 feet deep.

Homestead Act of 1862, Free Land

Did you know you can get free land?

Sounds unbelievable, right?

I mean who, in this day and age, would give out free plots of land. Well, the answer to that question can be traced back to 1862.

Are you familiar with the Homestead Act of 1862?

If you recall your American history, the Homestead Act was a law that gives free land to anyone who’s willing to move west and till the land for five years.

This law was in effect for over a hundred years. The last claim was approved in 1988.

Today, you can still take advantage of free land. However, please note that the land is subject to different requirements before it can be given out for free.

But that’s free land for you. So it pays to study and learn about the details. Put in some time to research to see what you need to do to get free land.

Wondering how to get free land?

Let’s get started, beginning with the law that governs homesteading land for free.

Table of Contents

Here’s A Brief Overview Of The Homestead Act.

On May 20, 1862, the Homestead Act became effective into law. This facilitated the settlement in the western region of the U.S., allowing Americans to put up claims for up to 160 acres of free land.

As a result, the law paved the way for small-time farmers to enjoy grants of free land.

When the Civil War ended, there were around 15,000 homestead claims, and more followed thereafter.

Eventually, the then U.S. government approved over 1.6 million claims, comprising about 420,000 square miles or 10 percent of all government-held property.

During its entire effectivity, there were more than 200 million acres of land granted to recipients under the Homestead Act. The last approved claimed was in 1988 for 80 acres of land situated in Southeastern Alaska.

The Spirit Of Granting Homesteading Land Lives On.

Ruins of ‘ANCESTOR BRAHMA’ Temple – 800 Year Old Ta Prohm, Cambodia

Hey guys, today we are going into a temple called ‘Ta Prohm’ Temple in Cambodia. Archeologists think it was built in the late 12th century, so this temple is about 800 years old. What is the meaning of Ta Prohm? Ta Prohm means ‘Ancestor Brahma’ – Cambodians consider Brahma, the Hindu God of Creation, as one of their ancestors. But the original name of this temple was RajaVihara, which means the Rest-House of the King, in Sanskrit language . The temple is known for 2 important features: One, is the carving of a dinosaur, specifically a stegosaurus – it is there on one of the walls, I made a video about this sometime ago. The second feature, is that trees, giant trees have taken over this temple. I mean, the way these trees have really grown and destroyed this temple is a very strange sight. How did this happen? The Cambodians abandoned this entire city and moved out about 500 years ago. This is why you see bushes and trees growing in many of the temples in this city, but this temple has some kind of weird energy that attracts plants and birds. You do see a lot of birds and of course, gigantic trees. In fact, ancient builders had predicted that this temple, would be taken over by trees, there are carvings which show exactly what would happen to the temple in the future. There are many small shrines within this temple, let us go into one of these shrines and see what is in there. There must have been some statues originally, but today, you can see the ceiling and even the walls have collapsed. Giant stone blocks have fallen on the ground, making it impossible to determine what was originally there. If you look at the side view, it has the shape of a chariot. It is very intriguing to see how the nearby forest and the temple have slowly merged together at some point in time. The temple has become very popular among Americans, and they take a lot of pictures while standing under these huge trees overgrown on temples. This specific location was used in the movie Tomb Raider and the temple, which was unknown until then, became a huge tourist destination after the movie. Today, the Indian Government is funding a restoration project and the archaeology department of India is partnering with the Cambodian Government and restoring many of the structures in this temple. You can see the before and after pictures, they are doing some very good work. This temple has many interesting carvings, but many of them are destroyed by trees. Look at the roots, they look like giant snakes taking over the temple. Here we can see a strange figure carved on the wall. What is it? It is a Naga, a 5 headed snake, but something is wrong with this picture. Where is the rest of its body? If we look at the wall, we can see some clues. We can see a leg with massive claws at the bottom, snakes don’t have legs. And we can see giant wings spreading on both sides. Something spectacular was carved here. What is it? The carving would have looked like this, this is a carving from a nearby temple. A giant bird like deity called Garuda, firmly holding down 2 Nagas with his 2 legs on the ground. And he is holding the tails of the Nagas high above his head. There is no doubt that the Ta Prohm temple once had a giant carving of this spectacular Garuda tormenting the Nagas. And sadly, this carving was deliberately destroyed by human beings, this is not the effect of nature. But what is Garuda doing to the Nagas? In Indian Hinduism, Garuda is merely shown holding the naga with his hands or sometimes his beak. But in South East Asia, the Garuda is shown holding the Naga’s head down with his legs while holding the tail above. Cambodians tell a strange story. The Garuda hunted Nagas all the time, so the Nagas feared that their entire species might become extinct. The Nagas knew the Garuda usually caught the Nagas by holding their middle of the body. So, the Nagas came up with a clever plan. All the Nagas swallowed heavy stones, so it becomes impossible for the Garuda to lift them. However, they underestimated the sharp eyesight of Garuda, who could see their actions while flying at a very high altitude. From this moment on, Garuda began holding the Nagas’ heads down and lifting and lowering the tail of the Naga, just like how we do the battle ropes in the gym. The stones were rolled within the body of Naga and the Naga could not spit them out either, because Garuda’s legs are on his head. Thus the Nagas were killed by the “Battle Ropes” technique. This is a very interesting story, but to understand the symbolisms in this story, we may have to meditate on it.

Tibetan singing bowls are not Tibetan?

This month, a friend forwarded me a Toronto Star article titled “Loss. Grief. Acceptance. How the ancient Tibetan practice of sound baths brought me peace.” He jokingly wondered why his parents never bothered to give him “sound baths.” I agreed.

Allow me to briefly assume the role of a Tibetan cultural ambassador to inform all who are willing to listen that the practice of sound baths are neither “ancient” nor “Tibetan.”

The scholarly consensus is that “Tibetan” singing bowls and sound baths are a thoroughly Western invention and their alleged Tibetanness a modern myth. There is no credible historical evidence, whatsoever, of Tibetans ever having used singing bowls.

History tells us that these metallic bowls were originally food bowls from North India or Nepal, and today, the bowl has become an object of orientalist fetishization and a star product of the sound bathing industry. These bowls are thus as Tibetan as the white Toronto Star author who bathed in its vibrations. Needless to say, these bowls are as spiritual and sacred to a Tibetan person as the exotic English teacup is for the average North American.

The Tibetan singing bowl doesn’t exist and isn’t real, but the racist mythologization of Tibetan people most definitely is. The singing bowl industry aggressively markets itself as reproducing an “ancient Tibetan ritual.”

This Western practice of essentializing Tibetan culture and capitalizing on that cultural commodification forces marginalized Tibetan refugees into a tricky situation — they get the economic opportunity to sell some metal bowls to fascinated white people but at the cost of being a willing participant in the orientalist imagination of Tibetaness, which in turn causes great cultural trauma and pain to the Tibetan people.

Sound energy enthusiasts tend to blur a variety of New Age beliefs and claim that each “Tibetan singing bowl” has its own “frequency,” “chakra,” “planet,” “energy” and accumulated “psychic history.” Diehard connoisseurs travel across the planet hunting for authentic antique Tibetan singing bowls, which they insist have been infused with “sacred ancient sound technology,” unlike cheap and fraudulent “modern knock offs.”

When confronted about their easily falsifiable claims of Tibetan cultural linkages, you find that “sound healers” often dismiss Tibetan people’s disavowal of knowledge by clinging onto the conspiracy theory that singing bowls are purposely shrouded in secrecy because Tibetans are guarding their ancient sound-based spiritual knowledge from prying outsiders.

They insist there exists a secret lineage of metalworking “shamans” who pass ancient mysteries down through the centuries. This example of wilful white ignorance is so patently absurd, I’m not sure whether I should laugh at its sheer silliness or cry at the exploitation of my cultural heritage by bigoted Westerners.

In the Western imagination, Tibetan identity/brand is largely confined to a mythical, asexual, masculine spiritual figure. In this light, my existence as a queer, fashion-loving, atheist Tibetan woman starts to become disorienting and surreal. Now that I have made these confessions, tell me, do I still qualify as sufficiently “Tibetan” to the orientalist eye?

Western bourgeois fantasies about Tibet and the harmful racial stereotypes they peddle simply have no need for the real Tibet and the suffering my country endures.

The real Tibet is subservient to the myth of Tibet. This myth, however, has real power and it has become the dominant framework through which the West perceives Tibetan political struggle. The myth reduces Tibet to a museum exhibit. The myth conflates the politics of Tibet to a question of the survival of a dying, one-dimensional civilization. The myth prevents Tibet’s political concerns from being taken seriously. The myth invites sentimentalities rather than political expediency. The myth ensures Tibetans never get the institutional and governmental support we tirelessly lobby for.

If you find “sound baths” healing, great! Good for you! But if you can, however, please kindly stop mythologizing and exoticizing Tibetans, and leave us out of your pseudo-scientific New Age nonsense. We are quite preoccupied resisting China’s violent settler colonial rule and fighting to preserve our rich cultural heritage as it is.

The Original Hawiians and The Collective Conscious

Emily Imani addresses the mis-stories of history and the missed stories of history that connect us as one. When were the Polynesian islands settled? Polynesian ancestors settled in Samoa around 800 BC, colonized the central Society Islands between AD 1025 and 1120 and dispersed to New Zealand, Hawaiʻi and Rapa Nui and other locations between AD 1190 and 1290. This video discusses the African/Black Question regarding the ancient and original populations of the South Pacific Islands and how they got there and where they came from. You will have to follow up with your own research and intuitive knowledge . The important aspect of this share is better to understand the origon of all ancient populations and address the lies . I will also challenge the euro concept of “discovering” lands that are already inhabited and why euro history is wriiten in a manner disruptive of the truth.
