Ancient Egyptians used helicopters and airplanes for battles? by Pravda. (English)
Well-known Egyptologist Alan Alford left to the Nile banks to study the Abydos mystery. The researcher studied the mysterious hieroglyphs and made sure that what seemed absolutely incredible was in fact quite real. Alford told journalists that ancient Egyptians had depicted a real helicopter model as if they made the engravings from life.
With a little help from their Martian ancestors, no doubt.
How the dead live by The Telegraph. (English)
The book elaborates Tibetan Buddhist teaching on the journey of the consciousness through the three stages, or bardos, of dying; the moment of death, the intermediate state between death and rebirth, and the process of rebirth itself. Central to the text is the belief that death presents the greatest opportunity to gain liberation, and so to step off the endless wheel of suffering that is held to characterise worldly existence.
For the first time in 1,300 years, the great Tibetan Book of the Dead has been translated into English. Mick Brown reports.

Giambattista della Porta (also known as Giovanni Battista Della Porta or John Baptist Porta) was a polymath who dabbled in nearly everything. "Magiae Naturalis", his first book, is also his best known work and the basis of his reputation. The first edition, which consisted of four books, appeared in 1558; an expanded edition of twenty books was first published in 1589. Della Porta was a hugely influential figure in Naples around 1600.
From Della Porta’s book published in English as Natural Magick in 1658:
abroad as exiles and banished men, rather than as strangers; and all to search out and to attain this knowledge; and when they came home again, this was the Science which they professed, and this they esteemed a profound mystery. They that have been most skillful in dark and hidden points of learning, do call this knowledge the very highest point, and the perfection's of Natural Sciences; inasmuch that if they could find out or devise amongst all Natural Sciences, any one thing more excellent or more wonderful then another, that they would still call by the name of Magick.
