to ASK THE QUESTIONS but ALSO TO KNOW THE ANSWERS
SPIRIT, like God, denotes an object of psychic experience which cannot be proved to exist in the external world and cannIot be understood rationally. This is its meaning if we use the word “spirit” in its best sense. Once we have freed ourselves from the prejudice that we have to refer to concepts of external experience or to a priori categories of reason, we can turn our attention and curiosity wholly to that strange and unknown thing we call spirit.
Mercury, the ambiguous god, only comes as the lumen nature, the Servator and Salvator, to the help of the very necceasry human understanding that relates [IT]self to the highest light ever received by man and does not, unmindful of it, trust exclusively to the cognitio verspertina.

FROM NAZI DRONES
In the summer of 1944, the German air force unleashed a new weapon on London: pilotless warplanes. For months, flocks of V-1s—4,900-pound winged missiles—would fly overhead, cut their engines, and free-fall before exploding over their target. Soaring at speeds of over 400 miles per hour, the Nazi drones rendered the Allies’ anti-aircraft defenses useless. To defeat them, US physicists had to develop a “smart fuse” that could travel more than 2,000 feet every second and trigger as it closed in on the planes.
My soulmate Linnie's mum was permanently deafened in one ear as a result of an explosion of a V1 on impact in North London where she was living at the time and had to be then prescribed throughout her life with more and more powerful hearing aids, at ever increasing cost.

"NO EMPIRE is eternal: all eventually fall amid hubris and humiliation. The heart-wrenching, humanitarian calamity that is the botched Afghan retreat is merely the latest sign that the American era is ending: Washington is no longer the world’s policeman, and an unsettling future of clashes between expansionist, authoritarian regional powers beckons. [IT] IS a far cry from the late 1980s-early 1990s, when America’s global clout peaked. The Reagan rebirth, the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, the termination of communism and its gulags, the rise of Silicon Valley and the invention of the internet, the liberation of Kuwait: these were the anni mirabiles of the US hegemon, the glory days of Pax Americana, bookending humanity’s most turbulent century.…

The land mass that linked Britain to continental Europe was rich in early
human life until it flooded. The idea of a “lost Atlantis” under the North Sea
connecting Britain by land to continental Europe had been imagined by
HG Wells in the late 19th century, with evidence of human inhabitation of
the forgotten world following in 1931 when the trawler Colinda dredged up
a lump of peat containing a spear point. But it is only now, after a decade of
pioneering research and the extraordinary finds of an army of amateur
archaeologists scouring the Dutch coastline for artefacts and fossils, that a
major exhibition is able to offer a window into Doggerland, a vast expanse
of territory submerged following a tsunami 8,000 years ago, cutting the
British Isles off from modern Belgium, the Netherlands and southern
