The Pale Blue Dot – Gaia (aka Earth).

Please dear Tourist of Solstice Calendar meditate on this:

Thank You Michael Marantz for composing this marvelous presentation of Carl Sagan’s thoughts.

EARTH: The Pale Blue Dot from Michael Marantz on Vimeo.

Hopefully you have gathered that this Calendar System is a window to a new Wisdom Paradigm.  If you are open to being totally responsible for developing you own Philosophy, not afraid to leave dogma behind and would enjoy the community of other such brave souls, please drop me a comment.  😉

I think this piece presents eloquently why I choose to anchor the Solstice Calendar with the birth of our species (YOOS). What do you think gentle reader?

Why Use 195,009 Y.O.O.S. Year Of Our Species ?

What should the year be on a Science Based Calendar?

Should it start with:

1. The Big Bang?   13,000,000,000 to 15,000,000,000  years ago (kinda long)

2. The Age of the Earth – approximately 4,500,000,000 years ago – hmmmmmmm

3. The beginning of life – approximately 3,500,000,000 years ago

4, The birth of the human species sounds good, so when was it?

195,000 Years Ago

University of Utah dean of mines Geologist Frank Brown is shown here crouching on Ethiopia’s Kibish rock formation.   On this site Brown and colleagues identified fossilized bones of Homo Sapiens that were determined to be 195,000 years old.   In 2005  these were the oldest fossils of the our species ever found!

A book Reco – You Must Read ANATHEM by Neal Stephenson.  The Consents in Anathem had their own clock / calendar systems.

The Solstice Calendar System is just the beginning of a New Religious / Philosophical Order.  There is NO Dogma.  Your are not required to leave anything behind.  You are to EXAMINE everything you believe in.  You are responsible for designing/developing your own Philosophy from the bottom up.  Are you up to it?

Rise Above the Gene Pool and Think for Yourself.

Most everything we believe came from the system we were born into.  We weren’t admonished to start from scratch and given a system and tools to arrive in our own belief system.  Ask yourself – Are you afraid of what you’d come with if you objectively examined and integrated all of your beliefs?
