Will we march with the monks of Burma,
Each foot light and heavy with complex purity
Will we squat only with the denizens of
Before the stippling glow of a single boxed vision
What star do we follow,
What star-found members follow us
What Will will have its way with us
What face do we turn to this near hallowed time,
This harvesting moon
(Happy return to this special certain spot in Earth's orbit, my V!)

Hundreds of people have suffered headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems after an object from space - believed to be a meteorite - crashed in southern Peru.
Best keep an eye on the news...
for a martian-assembled tripodic death walker kicking off the invasion,
or maybe the emergence of 'space flu'...
whatever it turns out to be,
stay in FEAR,
and check your shoelaces,

You will be tested later on this material.
Astronomers have mapped the positions of vast, invisible isles of dark matter in the sky, within which normal "bright" matter galaxies are embedded like glittering gems. The three-dimensional map spans not only space, but also time, and stretches back to when the universe was only about half its present age.
Dark matter is a mysterious hypothetical substance that is thought not to interact with light photons and is thus invisible to current detection instruments.
. . .
Not everyone is convinced that the new map reveals the presence of dark matter. Some skeptics think there is a good reason dark matter is invisible: It doesn't exist.
According to these scientists, an alternative explanation for the universe's mass discrepancy is that gravity does not operate equally in all parts of the universe, as is predicted by Newton and Einstein.
"The authors here converted their observed wiggles into matter density using Einsteinian formula," said HongSheng Zhao, a researcher at the University of St. Andrews in the UK, about the new map. "If we take a different formula, we would get somewhat different densities or clumps."
Zhao is an advocate of a theory of modified gravity called TeVeS, in which gravity is stronger in certain regions of space than others. In these gravity-boosted regions, gravitational lensing would work differently.
Until a dedicated mission is launched to measure the law of gravity in weak gravity environments, far away from the influence of the Sun and planets, such possibilities cannot be ruled out, Zhao said in an email interview.
"If the law does have a factor depending on the environment, then it could explain away much of dark matter," he said.
Radio Frequencies Help Burn Salt Water
An Erie cancer researcher has found a way to burn salt water, a novel invention that is being touted by one chemist as the "most remarkable" water science discovery in a century.
The radio frequencies act to weaken the bonds between the elements that make up salt water, releasing the hydrogen, Roy said. Once ignited, the hydrogen will burn as long as it is exposed to the frequencies, he said.
The discovery is "the most remarkable in water science in 100 years," Roy said.
"This is the most abundant element in the world. It is everywhere," Roy said. "Seeing it burn gives me the chills."
Holy crap a video, this must be for real.
Ok, that's the bell. Before you all rush outta here like a freshly opened barrel of monkeys, let me just say, I'm proud of you.
I think we really learned something today.

in sky tension
strike the scene
wash the mine
wear the soul
amongst God’s shelves
every finger buried and cleaved
in the mane, pale horse
in the vein, pale rider
boil us some tea
boil us the sea
break the band, burn the stand
find the tiger, break the toe
find the pockets for the hand
turn away, colors from the bow
evenly evening comes

And upon the face of fear
I cast the dream,
the moorless knowledge
of heroes and friends
Funny how little we
know of the effect
of the smallest moments of love.
Timeless legends affecting generations of life,
from the littlest twitch of compassion,
interpretation and sacrifice.
Girthing ourselves in light,
finally dreaming with one eye,
we can hear the wells speak of older waters,
and wishes... fulfilled with a sigh.
Do drink from the spoon that is offered,
from the quiet hand.
Do tilt the same offering
from the center of your heart.
As we all wonder together
The face, the bravery, the saintly laugh,
