The Legend of Dagad Trikon September 30, 2007


Imagine…. discovering the key to the next level in the cosmic game of creation…

Imagine…. uncovering the roots of humankind, and the truth of ancient myths that cut across race and culture…

Imagine…. that the roots are alive, and within every human being …

Imagine…. true freedom…

Imagine…. that the time for e pluribus unum (out of many, one) is now …

The Legend of Dagad Trikon is a mythical tale, a pageturning story of good-versus-evil, of the search for ten caskets containing prophecies hidden by the Avasthas, an enlightened race who vanished ten thousand years ago. (more…)


In Love you know everything September 28, 2007

 photo by axinia


I wonder how many of you have experienced that phenomenon: knowing such endless lot about the persons we love!!This knowledge can be of two kinds (what I found out myself):


 1. Things we learn about somebody because we love that person and want to please him/her in any way


 2. Things we know spontaneously although we actually never learned about them! – 1000 of little or big things that we just intuitively know and then do. The first point is clear, and can be logically explained. The best manifestation of it is giving presents. Why does it happen that people give each other useless/ not desired presents? (more…)


Meme – the perfect theory September 26, 2007

 photo by axinia

I must admit I just love that theory of memes: “Memes are contagious ideas, all competing for a share of our mind in a kind of Darwinian selection. As memes evolve, they become better and better at distracting and diverting us from whatever we’d really like to be doing with our lives.” Blogging, by the way – is one of the most favorite tools of memes today.

Meme is a kind of a mental virus that spreads aroud – Memes are habits, skills, songs, stories, or any other kind of information that is copied from person to person. Memes, like genes, are replicators. That is, they are information that is copied with variation and selection. Because only some of the variants survive, memes (and hence human cultures) evolve. Memes are copied by imitation, teaching and other methods, and they compete for space in our memories and for the chance to be copied again. (more…)


3 questions about YOUR spiritual practice September 23, 2007

Filed under: innocence,joy,personal,Religion,spirituality,thoughts,world,writing — axinia @ 2:04 pm


There are three simple but fundamental questions that we can ask, to learn whether a spiritual practice is true of false.

1) Does the practice aim to enslave you or to set you free? Are you expected to labour as an apprentice for ever, or are you expected to become a real master of yourself and so liberate your true spiritual being?

2) Does it give you control over the whole of your subtle system? Not just a sensation here and there, or a limited set of spiritual powers, but a complete, interlocking and verifialble toolchest of techniques and guidelines which deliever consistent results every time you use them?

3) It is a business? Are you asked ot pay money to progress in your spirituality? Is there a hierarchy of practitioners, and a document which claims to certify your ability? (more…)


Bad mood forever! September 18, 2007

Filed under: blogging,communication,innocence,joy,personal,world,writing — axinia @ 9:53 am

The bad mood can be caused by:

  • bad weather
  • somebody`s bad remark
  • lack of money
  • lack of sun
  • lack of love
  • stupid people around
  • bad new
  • and so on, and so on………………..

These are the reasons for the bad mood people often give. Really nothing special, apart from one thing: I had to study the subject in order to understand WHY. Why does this state appear??? (more…)


Divorce Fair? World premiere in Austria! September 16, 2007

Filed under: blogging,love,Religion,thoughts,Travel,women,world — axinia @ 9:05 pm

Since centuries Austria had been playing a very special role in the international politics – the emperors, following the strategy of Kaiserin Maria-Theresia preffered to marry their childred instead of fighting the neighbours. Very smart!

Unfortunately the birth of Sigmund Freud in Vienna had obviously a much greater impact on the Austrian society than that of the whole royal history: since 20th century the idea of sex as the measure of all things is nowadays deeply rooted in the population and you can not even sell yoghurt without showing a girl taking off her cloths…  Do you believe it would have no impact on the national maritual situation?

As it is, the marriage institution is pretty ruined here. In Vienna alone, the divorce rate was 65.9 % last year! Interestingly enough, many who have been in a long-term relationships (even for years together), had to face a divorce rather soon.

Now what is the way out? Some clever people came to a brilliant idea: the world premiere of a DIVORCE FAIR! Why not? The organiser, who was before specialized on the wedding fairs, realised the necessity of a different kind. The first Divorce Fair will take place in the end of October 2007. In Vienna. (more…)


The magic of this picture… September 13, 2007

 photo by axinia

I don`t know how to explain that but there is a special magic about the above which makes me look at it again and again. I belive it is my best one out the about 300 selected on my flickr page.

I was just wondering if my most respected readers can share if they see something special about it  – or is it only me, because for some reason it may reflect the state of my being…

Is there anything?


P.S. this post is not about self-promotion 🙂

just trying to understand some things. Thanks!

What is the true size of your country? September 9, 2007

source: Peter Equal Area Wall Map

When I first saw this map, depicting the true sizes of the continents and countries I was astonished about the manipulative nature of the traditional map:

Mercator map

But even more astonishing fact is that that most popular map (named after its designer Mercator) was actually created in 1569 primarily for use by navigators. When the Mercator projection was created, the custom among map-makers was to place the map-maker’s country—in this case, Germany—at the center of the map. The Equator is placed 2/3 of the way down the map rather than halfway down. This arrangement depicts Europe as being larger than South America. In reality, South America is almost twice the size of Europe. Alaska is appears to be three times larger than Mexico, although Mexico actually is larger than Alaska. On a Mercator map, Greenland looks larger than China, even though China actually is four times larger than Greenland. Centuries after centuries people (at least in the Western world) have been convinced that North America is bigger than the South, Russia is really huge and Africa is actually not that impressive.

What is your favourite season? September 8, 2007

 photo by axinia

It is Autumn in Austria: Rain, wind, cold, little sun… How can one enjoy that?

The strange thing about me is that I enjoy every season as it comes.

Then the spring comes I think “What a lovely time!” and breath in the fresh jolly air… What can be better than that curious green and blossoming gardens?

When the summer comes – I forget the spring and bathe in the warmth of the summer nights and the joyful look of the summer smiles…

Then the autumn comes in, clad in a golden coat, it breaths its cooling and wise odour of the fallen leaves into my face… Oh, how much I love this very special feeling! (more…)


Can you pick up a person with the same educational background as you from a crowd? September 5, 2007

 photo by axinia

I can. And I actually do it all the time. Unconsciously…

That is truly amazing, but since I graduated from my University (already 10 years ago!) I keep picking up people of the same educational background as myself in all possible meetings and groups.

How does it work?

Say, I am at a party (any kind of). I talk to many, but end up talking closely with only 1-2. And! – they mostly turn out to be linguists, germanists, philologists, interpreters, language-teachers, etc. Mind that I am a linguist myself 🙂

It seems quite incredible to me as I have a very wide range of friends and contacts in many branches and professions. But this “background” game appears to be the same! (more…)
