(LiveScience) It sounds like a mash-up of Indiana Jones’ plots, but German researchers say a heavy Buddha statue brought to Europe by the Nazis was carved from a meteorite that likely fell 10,000 years ago along the Siberia-Mongolia border.
This space Buddha, also known as “iron man” to the researchers, is of unknown age, though the best estimates date the statue to sometime between the eighth and 10th centuries. The carving depicts a man, probably a Buddhist god, perched with his legs tucked in, holding something in his left hand. On his chest is a Buddhist swastika, a symbol of luck that was later co-opted by the Nazi party of Germany.
“One can speculate whether the swastika symbol on the statue was a potential motivation to displace the ‘iron man’ meteorite artifact to Germany,” the researchers wrote online Sept. 14 in the journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science.
With world events occurring at an alarming rate, in current times it seems almost insecure and crazy not to analyze ourselves within these rapid, rampaging, racing times. I do not wish to touch on a war in specificity, the intelligence murder of dictators, the subsequent interest overthrows of specific countries governments, or even the daily rapes, murders, and horrific violence, which occur by the minute around this globe. Instead, I wish to analyze and critique an event, which is tied to a majority of the global events of the last decade. Now, this is not in association with every occurrence, but rather the major developments out of which this global police state has emerged—what we are now blatantly living. Thus, this world has been pushed into a totalitarian control grid; this did not simply start because of a specific event. The event to which I am referring was simply the most obvious, worldwide piece of evidence in which we have to prove, once and for all, that events like the sinking of the Lusitania, Oklahoma City, the Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor, the Reichstag fire, the creation of the Federal Reserve Central Bank of America in 1913, and many more where not just random occurrences in specific paths of history, but they were either orchestrated, allowed to proceed with prior knowledge, and/or a combination of both by a specific group of powers.
Neorealism focuses on the State as a key actor on the world stage and the systemic interdependent nature of the international community. The neorealist is ultimately interested in security as they view the state as highest authority. I believe this view resonates from a serious insecurity within their human nature (what that nature is constructed from is a matter of perspective, however). This insecurity breeds an authoritarian attitude most of the time, which is concerned with control. Ironically, the “security” produced is a harsh lie because building arms, and increasing domestic security, only creates tension enough for the inevitability of war both abroad and within the country. The system, insecure as it is, cracks down on its civilians until they become an enemy of the state.

The WHITE HORSE:
-Revelations 6:2 says “And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.”
The Phrase VBIQVE:
-A Latin word found on many ancient Roman coins meaning “everywhere.”
-Its English form is UBIQUE – the root word in English for “ubiquitous” which means present, or seeming to be present, everywhere at the same time, omnipresent.
-(Left) The sign of admiration of the sixth degree of the Masonic lodge.
-(Right) Napoleon Bonaparte is also depicted with the same gesture.
It is also very similar to the “Seig Heil” gesture of the Nazis (above). The term means hail victory. Could victory be closely related to conquering as stated in revelations?
