Langobard architecture - Langobard temple in Spoleto


Lombard Romanesque architecture

The link is HERE in case this image doesn't hold. Spoleto (Umbria) was one of two southern Langobard duchies; Benevento being the other. They actually lasted longer than the larger three northern duchies thanks to the Vatican-Carolinian (Charlemagne) alliance.

.More examples of Langobard era architecture and artifacts can be viewed on the Italian Wikipedia "Longobardi" webpage, the "Duomo di Monza" webpage,, the "Architetture longobarda" webpage, and at 'The Cathedral at Monza: Centerpoint of the Langobard period'.

Umberto I of Italy and his "double"





.
Umberto I of Italy and his "double"

VanitasAboveTopSecret.com - May 7, 2008

I have asked this question within a different recent thread, but since its title is more of a general kind, I thought a new thread dealing specifically with this case might be warranted.

I hope I am not breaking any rules - I would just really like to get an answer to this question - and a title naming the king might improve the chances of some Italian, perhaps, who knows of this noticing the thread.

Some of you may have heard of the story about Umberto I, the king of Italy, and his alleged "double." If you haven't, here's a short account, copied below for convenience:

“In 1900 King Umberto of Italy came face to face with a man who looked just like him. The king and his aide-de-camp Gen. Emilio Ponzio-Vaglia arrived in the town of Monza, a few miles outside Milan. The next day the king was to present the prizes at an athletic meet. The night of their arrival he and his aide went to a small restaurant for dinner. As the owner was taking their order, the king noticed that he and the patron were virtually doubles, in both face and build. He remarked on this, and as the two men talked an extraordinary series of parallels emerged which caused both of them to marvel:

* Both were born on the same day, year, same town, and had the same name.
 

* They were both married on April 22, 1868.
 

* Both wives were named Margarita,
 

* Both had a son named Vittorio.
 

* They had been decorated for bravery together on two occasions, the first time in 1866, when Umberto had been a private and the king a colonel, and the second time in 1870, when each had been promoted to sergeant and corps commander.

With this final revelation the patron returned to his duties, and the king, turning to his aide, said, ‘I intend to make that man a Cavaliere of the Crown of Italy tomorrow. Be sure he comes to the meet.'"

“The following day, true to his word, the king asked for his double only to be told that the man had died that day in a shooting accident. Shocked, the king asked his aide to find out when the funeral was to take place so that he might attend. At that very moment three shots rang out, fired by an assassin. The first of them missed the king, but the second two pierced his heart and killed him instantly.”

Frankly, I find this story more eerie than "fascinating," in the usual titillating sense of the word... Because if it's true, my first thought would be:

The two Umbertos were twin brothers. Twins being a major problem in royal lineages, for obvious reasons, one of the boys was given away immediately after birth, but was also called Umberto, either by chance (by the family who adopted him) - or even on purpose, to secure a credible "spare."

That would explain everything, even the subsequent "coincidences."
(Many studies of the lives of identical twins show that their spouses are often very similar in appearance, share the same name etc. Twins often also die on the same day - although in this case even the death could be explained in a more sinister and less coincidental light...)


But my question is: WAS it true at all?


Does anyone have a reputable source for this story?

Artsy.net

"....our mission to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone. We hope to continue promoting arts education and accessibility with your help.

"The Museo Thyssen-Bournemisza is currently exhibiting "Masterworks from Budapest: From the Renaissance to the Avant-Garde", which features Leonardo Da Vinci. As such, we would like to take the opportunity to now promote his work. Our hope is that the timing of this outreach will effectively support both the Museum and Da Vinci.

"Our Leonardo Da Vinci page provides visitors with Da Vinci's bio, over 15 of his works, exclusive articles, and up-to-date Da Vinci exhibition listings. The page also includes related artists and categories, allowing viewers to discover art beyond our Da Vinci page. We would love to be included as an additional resource for your visitors via a link on your page. We believe that by spreading access we can provide a new, empowering way for approaching art. If you are able to add a link to our Leonardo Da Vinci page, please let me know. Thanks in advance for your consideration!

 

Thank you,

The Mystery of “Flower of Life” & “Sacred Geometry”



The Mystery of “Flower of Life” & “Sacred Geometry”

[See article link for images]


The “Flower of Life” can be found in all major religions of the world. It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the “Great Void”. Everything is made from the Creator’s thought.

After the creation of the Seed of Life the same vortex’s motion was continued, creating the next structure known as the Egg of Life.

This structure forms the basis for music, as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. It is also identical to the cellular structure of the third embryonic division (The first cell divides into two cells, then to four cells then to eight). Thus this same structure as it is further developed, creates the human body and all of the energy systems including the ones used to create the Merkaba. If we continue creating more and more spheres we will end up with the structure called the Flower of Life.

The flower of life holds a secret symbol created by drawing 13 circles out of the Flower of Life. By doing this, one can discover the most important and sacred pattern in the universe. This is the source of all that exists; it’s called the Fruit of Life. It contains 13 informational systems. Each one explains another aspect of reality. Thus these systems are able to give us access to everything ranging from the human body to the galaxies. In the first system, for example, it’s possible to create any molecular structure and any living cellular structure that exists in the universe. In short every living creature.



 

The most common form of the “Flower of Life” is hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle.

The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which acts as a basic component of the Flower of Life’s design.

The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest to date example. it is carved in granite and may possibly represent the Eye of Ra a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh.

Other examples can be found in Phoenician, Assyrian, Indian, Asian, Middle Eastern, and medieval art.

Leonardo da Vinci has studied the Flower of Life’s form and its mathematical properties. He has drawn the Flower of Life itself, as well as components therein, such as the Seed of Life. He has drawn geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, a torus, etc., and has also used the golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design.

The flower of life shape contains a secret shape known as the fruit of life that consists of 13 spheres that hold many mathematical and geometrical laws. These laws represent the whole universe. Giving the flower of life to someone is like giving them the whole universe in one jewel.


The Flower of Life can be found in all major religions of the world. In Egypt, the source of all the monotheistic religions, the “Flower of Life”, can be found in the ancient Temple of Abydos. In Israel, it can be found in ancient synagogues in the Galilee and in Mesada.

People reported physical and psychological changes after wearing this pendant – faster heart beats, prophetic dreams, breaking of illusions, seeing the reality as it is and becoming free from long time fears.

The flower of life is one of the strongest sacred geometric shapes!



~ROSSLYN CHAPEL- THE CEILING~

The Chapel is filled with the Sinclair symbol of the engrailed cross, and the building is said to be based on the ancient temple of Jerusalem. The Chapel is believed by many to be the final hiding place of a much sought after sacred relic, the Holy Grail itself, thought to be part of the Templar treasure smuggled out of France during the attack on the Templars when Phillip the Fair decided to bring down the powerful and influential order. Some of the order fled to Portugal, others, it is said, to Scotland, for the Templars had connections by marriage to the Sinclairs, and the Scots, including Robert the Bruce, were ready to welcome such a renowned group as the Knights Templar to help them in their fight against the English crown. Many believe that the Templar’s brought with them to Europe new knowledge and holy relics found under the Temple Mount itself. Indeed, it was the Templars who sparked the phenomenal new architecture revealed in the building of the gothic cathedrals of Medieval Europe, the first of these being Chartres in France.

“In a single century from 1170 no fewer than eighty cathedrals and almost five hundred abbeys were built in France alone, involving more masonry than was ever cut in ancient Egypt! These buildings were built to a startling new scale never seen before.“- Knight and Lomas. The Hiram Key. The architecture is such that the experience of sound is heightened. It may be that, like the ancient standing stones and long barrows, these ‘new’ sacred sites were similarly built and ‘tuned’ to enhance certain frequencies and energies.


Preservation of regional cultures should be a Human Right
“What if, in their excavations on the Temple Mount, they had unearthed scrolls, manuscripts, theorems or blueprints relating to Solomon’s Temple itself? What if these discoveries had included the lost architectural secrets of geometry, proportion, balance and harmony that had been known to the builders of the pyramids and other great monuments of antiquity?“– Graham Hancock.The Sign and the Seal.

Cisalpine IQ and human accomplishment: Part 2

I ran across an article some time ago entitled 'Tiger Mom accused of being a 'full-blown racist' as her new book names the eight 'superior' races and religions that make better parents' (James Nye - Daily Mail [UK] - January 14, 2014). Since the Cisalpine ethno-cultural group has a higher average IQ then any of the mentioned American demographic groupings--or higher than any other demographic grouping in the world for that matter--I wanted to comment on it. 

First on her list was Jewish-Americans, her husband's culture. Although the most successful, organized, and influential demographic in the United States and the world; the average IQ of Israel is 95. 95 to 105 is considered the range of "average" in the United States. It's fairly high for an average IQ. The Jewish people--racially speaking--are from a wide array of ethnically dissimilar peoples who cluster as a culture/religion. For example, some are merely Arabs who converted to Judaism many centuries ago... or Asians, Europeans, etc.

Second on her list are Indian-Americans, whom share many of the same pragmatic traits as far east Asians, and of which some seem to do very well on spelling bees. The average IQ of India is a mere 82.... a lower average IQ than African-Americans.

Third are Chinese-Americans, the author's ethnicity, whom are most often extremely clan and culture oriented with a seemingly undistracted and pragmatic approach to life. The average IQ of China is 100. Hong Kong had shown a higher number when it was a separate state.

Fourth are Iranian-Americans, many of which reflect the more successful element within Iranian society under the Shah. The average IQ of Iran is 84, although it's very likely that a study on specifically the Persian demographic in Iran would produce a higher number.

Number five are Lebanese-Americans, a historically successful demographic group. The average IQ of Lebanon is 82. However there seems to be a strong ethno-cultural split between Lebanese Christians (Phoencian-descended), whom have long emigrated to the U.S., and Lebanese Muslims (Arabs) who apparently were relative newcomers to Lebanon.

Number six are Nigerian-Americans who reflect the American-educated element from Nigeria... which itself has an average IQ of 84.

Number seven are Cuban-Americans. Since the migrating element is largely made up of those of Spanish descent (Amerindians disappeared from disease centuries ago), it might be said that this group is similar or the same as a population from Spain. Cuba's average IQ would be non-applicable since much of the population of Cuba does not necessarily reflect the collective "Cuban-Americans."

Last on the list are American Mormons. Since the Mormons of Utah and parts of other surrounding states are generally thought of as being of English descent, this demographic may be similar or the same as a root stock population from the UK.

The author cleverly threw bones to what she perceived as "1 white group" and "1 black group," despite an undercurrent of hostility towards those two demographics. My conclusion is that these demographics are successful due to their pragmatism and ability to organize and work together; and not due to high IQ's or the number of geniuses or inventors. Perhaps those with the real "smarts" are the ones who realize that evolutionary struggle actually applies to them?

St. Michael's prayer against evil

St. Michael - Patron Saint of the Langobards



























Prayer to St. Michael, the Archangel

St. Michael, the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection
against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou,
oh Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
cast into Hell,
Satan and all the other evil spirits
who prowl about the world,
seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.
