1. Large mosaic in ancient tomb uncovered in Greece

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Archaeologists digging through a vast ancient tomb in Amphipolis in northern Greece have uncovered a floor mosaic that covers the whole area of a room seen as the antechamber to the main burial ground.

    The mosaic, 3 meters (10 feet) long and 4.5 meters (15 feet) wide, depicts a horseman with a laurel wreath driving a chariot drawn by two horses and preceded by the god Hermes. According to a Culture Ministry announcement on Sunday, Hermes is depicted here as the conductor of souls to the afterlife.

    The mosaic is made up of pebbles in many colors: white, black, gray, blue, red and yellow. A circular part, near the center of the mosaic, is missing, but authorities say enough fragments have been found to reconstruct a large part.

    The ministry says that archaeologists have dated the mosaic to the last quarter of 4th century B.C. (325-300 B.C.), consistent with their belief the grave contains the remains of a contemporary of Alexander the Great, the ancient Greek King of Macedonia, who conquered the Persian Empire and reached present-day India, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan in a whirlwind campaign, from 334 to 323 B.C. The grave may be that of a relative or general of Alexander’s, archaeologists have speculated.

    Alexander himself, who died in Babylon in present-day Iraq at age 32, in 323 B.C., is believed to have been buried in Egypt. But his tomb hasn’t been found.

  7. IN his well-known work, The Rosicrucians, Their Rites and Mysteries, Hargrave Jennings reproduces five Qabbalistic charts which he declares to be genuine Rosicrucian drawings. He gives no information concerning their origin nor does he attempt an elucidation of their symbolism. A recent writer who reproduced one of these charts correlated it to the emblematic tomb of Father C.R.C., thus exposing the true nature of Christian Rosencreutz.

    The five plates reproduced in Hargrave Jennings’ book are part of a series of fifteen diagrams which appear in The Magical, Qabbalistical, and Theosophical Writings of Georgius von Welling, on the Subject of Salt, Sulphur, and Mercury. This extremely rare volume was published at Frankfort and Leipzig in 1735 and 1760. The numbers and figures on the charts refer to the chapters and sections of the Writings. These fifteen charts constitute a remarkable and invaluable addition to the few other known admittedly authentic Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian diagrams.

    Lucifer is the greatest mystery of symbolism. The secret knowledge of the Rosicrucians concerning Lucifer is nowhere so plainly set forth as in these plates, which virtually reveal his true identity, a carefully guarded secret about which little has been written. Lucifer is represented by the number 741.

    Von Welling does not give a complete exposition of the fifteen charts; to have done so would have been contrary to the principles of Qabbalistic philosophy. The deeper significance of the symbols is revealed only by profound study and contemplation.

  8. Ecstasy and Acid in Your Medicine Cabinet? Doctors Explore Psychedelics

    Psychedelics, the drugs of choice for many in the 1960s counterculture movement, may be making a comeback in the most straight-laced of places: research labs and doctors’ offices.

    Scientists, doctors and scholars who have researched the health potential of drugs such as LSD, magic mushrooms and ecstasy, gathered at the Horizons conference in New York City this past weekend to discuss innovations in the field.

    Psychedelics have been the subject of experiments by scientists for decades but went out of favor with the law in the 1960s and 1970s when they “escaped the lab” and were picked up by proselytizers who helped give them a bad name, conference presenters said. This led to a backlash that slammed the lid on research for the next several decades.

    Those prohibitions seem to be loosening somewhat, with some governments allowing a small amount of research with psychedelic drugs, results of which show they may carry promise for treating a wide variety of ailments, from anxiety to addiction.

    Here are some highlights from presentations at the conference.

    1. Millennia Before the War on Drugs, Psychedelics Were Celebrated by Many

    “Some of the most significant civilizations have given an honored place to psychedelics,” scholar and writer Graham Hancock told conference attendees on Sunday (October 12). In ancient Egypt psychoactive blue water lily andacacia plants were likely consumed to induce visions, he said.

    “I think the Egyptians were deep into the visionary and psychedelic experience, which explains the transcendental power of their ideas and art,” Hancock said.

    Hancock said hallucinogenic mushrooms played a part in cultures such as the Mayan Civilization and were depicted in European and African cave paintingsas far back as 9,000 years ago. He also demonstrated the widespread use of peyote cacti and other hallucinogenic plants throughout Latin America and Amazonia in the pre-Columbian era.

    ancock said it’s not unusual for innovative thinkers to experiment with drugs, citing Steve Jobs’s use of LSD in the 1970s as an example. Jobsdescribed taking LSD as “a positive life-changing experience,” though it’s impossible to prove it was directly involved in the development of the Apple computer.

    Hancock described it as “criminal” that “we live in a society that will send us to prison if we make use of time-honored sacred plants [and other synthetic derivatives] to explore our own consciousness,” he said.

    The U.S. Government has made almost all psychedelics illegal, and even simple possession of a small amount something like psilocybin-containing mushrooms can carry a penalty of a year in jail.

    2. A Magic Mushroom Chemical Has the Potential to Treat Anxiety in Cancer Patients

    Psilocybin, the active ingredient in so-called “magic mushrooms,” has been shown to reduce anxiety and depression in several small studies, including one 2010 study at UCLA published in Archives of General Psychiatry and another in progress at Johns Hopkins. A paper that came out this spring done by researchers from the Psychiatric University Hospital of Zurich publishedin the journal Biological Psychiatry found that psilocybin decreases activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain that may be overactive in people with anxiety and depression.

    A recently completed project at New York University found that psilocybin appears to reduce anxiety and depression in terminal cancer patients, saidAlexander Belser, a doctoral fellow in the Department of Applied Psychology. Belser stressed that the results hadn’t yet been fully analyzed. But it appeared that psilocybin led many of the study participants, who were all in various stages of life-threatening cancer, to have “mystical experiences” that gave them great insights, improved their anxiety and generally made them more positive and loving, they and their loved ones reported.

    One of the study participants, a middle-aged woman, said in a film shown at the conference that ever since her dosing several months ago, she found herself “so much more connected to everyone and everything.”

    Another participant, a young man, said the experience gave him “a connection to a spiritual world that adds meaning to my life.”

    To date there have been no adverse reactions to psilocybin in any study. Some people have had some “difficult trips” that involved anxiety, but study participants considered this part of the healing process, they said. In the NYU study, and others like it, guiding practitioners are heavily trained beforehand and also keep on hand a psilocybin antidote for a worst-case scenario, which luckily hasn’t happened.

    Belser and colleagues received a warm welcome from the sellout crowd, gathered together Saturday (October 11) at Judson Memorial Church, across the street from Washington Square Park. Several of the patients from the study whose testimonials were shown in a video also attended the presentation.

  9. Remains of Alexander the Great’s Father Confirmed Found

    A team of Greek researchers has confirmed that bones found in a two-chambered royal tomb at Vergina, a town some 100 miles away from Amphipolis’s mysterious burial mound, indeed belong to the Macedonian King Philip II, Alexander the Great’s father.

    The anthropological investigation examined 350 bones and fragments found in two larnakes, or caskets, of the tomb. It uncovered pathologies, activity markers and trauma that helped identify the tomb’s occupants.

    Along with the cremated remains of Philip II, the burial, commonly known as Tomb II, also contained the bones of a woman warrior, possibly the daughter of the Skythian King Athea, Theodore Antikas, head of the Art-Anthropological research team of the Vergina excavation, told Discovery News.
