~Why Is This Being Done?~

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. (CDC) has lumped COVID-19 deaths in with influenza and pneumonia for reporting purposes. Why? Because the recovery rate for COVID-19 is more than 99%, but lumping COVID deaths in with deaths from other causes gives the appearance of increasing the death rate from COVID-19! Why is this being done?

And why are we fast tracking a vaccine for a disease that has a 99.9% recovery rate when the vaccine has a 3% adverse reaction rate, and when inexpensive preventatives and therapies exist?

Spain Becomes First Country To Create Register Of Those Who Refuse Covid Vaccine

“Spain has become the first country in Europe to create a register maintained by the government with a list of the names of citizens who have refused the COVD-19 vaccine, a list which will be shared with other European governments. Spain’s Minister of Health Salvador Illa recently announced that the country will be setting up a register of citizens who have refused the COVD-19 vaccine when it was offered to them and the reasons why they refused.

Although Spain has not mandated COVID-19 vaccinations, the threat of being placed on a list looms over every Spanish citizen when they are contacted by regional authorities that it is their turn to get the vaccine. Should they refuse the vaccine, their name will be added to the list, which will then be shared with other European nations. Illa said that this list will not be accessible by the public or employers but will be maintained in order to keep a record of who was offered the vaccine and refused it.

However, if the stated reason for keeping a list of names of unvaccinated citizens is to simply have a record of those offered the vaccine, why would it be necessary to note who accepted or rejected the vaccine and for what reason? And why would it be necessary to share names of the unvaccinated with other countries?”

Philosophical Questions #2: Does Knowledge Have Intrinsic Value Or Does It Need To Have A Practical Use To Have Value?

Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, skills, or objects. By most accounts, knowledge can be acquired in many different ways and from many sources, including but not limited to perception, reason, memory, testimony, scientific inquiry, education, and practice.

Value is the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

So, does knowledge have intrinsic value or does it need to have a practical use to be valuable?

I would say knowledge does have intrinsic value, knowledge doesn’t have to have a practical use to be valuable. For example, we could have knowledge of the universe that isn’t practical to be able to be applied to life but is intrinsically valuable to us for our understanding.

But then isn’t that practical if we know something? Oh dear, down the rabbit hole again..

Philosophical Questions #1: Is There Free-Will?

Can anybody have free-will if we make choices based on past knowledge which we gain through experiences; making choices by our perception. Hence is there free-will?

Free will is defined as the ability to choose between different possible courses of action unimpeded. Free will is closely linked to the concepts of moral responsibility, praise, guilt, sin, and other judgements which apply only to actions that are freely chosen.

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers: Service

“We are all channels of the Great Spirit. It is a privilege to serve. There is no religion higher than service. Service is the true coin of the spirit. It is noble to serve. To service is to enrich the lives of others and your own. To serve is to bring comfort to those that think there is nothing left for them in your world.

It is in service that we find inner peace, tranquility and repose. It is in service that we obtain steadfastness that enables us to have complete confidence in the overruling power, to strive to get closer and closer to the Great Spirit.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers

No-Fly Zones

Why do airlines not fly over Antarctica?

No Fly Zone in Antarctica.

The technical answer is varied, one theory is that historically when planes used a compass as their primary navigation source and approached one of the magnetic poles, the compass would go wild and unpredictable! We have all seen the movies, where the compass starts to spin! Such unpredictability of compass would make it very difficult to maintain the correct flight route to your destination..

What are they really hiding in no-fly zones?

Did You Know #5: The True Size Of Africa

“Take a look at any map, and it’s clear that the African continent is a big place.

However, despite the common perception that Africa is a large landmass, it’s still one that is vastly underestimated by most casual map viewers.

“The reason for this is that the familiar Mercator map projection tends to distort our geographical view of the world in a crucial way — one that often leads to misconceptions about the relative sizes of both countries and continents.

A Geographical Jigsaw
Today’s infographic comes from Kai Krause and it shows the true size of Africa, as revealed by the borders of the countries that can fit within the continent’s shape.

The African continent has a land area of 30.37 million sq km (11.7 million sq mi) — enough to fit in the U.S., China, India, Japan, Mexico, and many European nations, combined.

Country Land Area (sq. km) Land Area (sq. mi) % of Africa
🇺🇸 United States 9.83 million 3.80 million 32.4%
🇨🇳 China 9.60 million 3.71 million 31.6%
🇮🇳 India 3.29 million 1.27 million 10.8%
🇲🇽 Mexico 1.96 million 0.76 million 6.5%
🇵🇪 Peru 1.29 million 0.50 million 4.2%
🇫🇷 France 0.64 million 0.25 million 2.1%
🇪🇸 Spain 0.51 million 0.20 million 1.7%
🇵🇬 Papua New Guinea 0.46 million 0.18 million 1.5%
🇸🇪 Sweden 0.45 million 0.17 million 1.5%
🇯🇵 Japan 0.38 million 0.15 million 1.3%
🇩🇪 Germany 0.36 million 0.14 million 1.2%
🇳🇴 Norway 0.32 million 0.13 million 1.1%
🇮🇹 Italy 0.30 million 0.12 million 1.0%
🇳🇿 New Zealand 0.27 million 0.10 million 0.9%
🇬🇧 United Kingdom 0.24 million 0.09 million 0.8%
🇳🇵 Nepal 0.15 million 0.06 million 0.5%
🇧🇩 Bangladesh 0.15 million 0.06 million 0.5%
🇬🇷 Greece 0.13 million 0.05 million 0.4%
Total 30.33 million sq. km 11.71 million sq. mi 99.9%

You could add together all of the landmasses above and they would not equate to the geographical footprint of Africa, which itself is home to 54 countries and 1.2 billion people.

Editor’s note: The above table is slightly different from the countries shown in the visualization, which focuses more on fitting recognizable country shapes into the geographical shape of Africa.

Why the Misconception?
Interestingly, the problem with maps is not that Africa is sized incorrectly.

Using the animation below, you’ll see that Africa is actually the most accurately sized continent using the common Mercator map projection:

Mercator

The Mercator projection attempts to place the spherical shape of the world onto a cylinder, causing areas closest to the poles to be “stretched”.

Africa, which straddles the Equator, barely changes in size — meanwhile, the countries furthest from the Equator become inflated from their true sizes on this type of map.

For those of us living in Western countries, this is an interesting dilemma to consider.

This means that the sizes of European and North American countries are distorted, giving us an inaccurate mental “measuring stick” for judging the relative sizes of other countries.

This has implications not only for Africa, but for the whole Southern Hemisphere: South America, India, the Middle East, and even Australia are “bigger” than they may initially appear on a map.”

Silver Birch: Patriotism & Love Of The Selfish Kind

“THE motive is the all important qualification. If patriotism means only love of one’s country and the people who dwell in it, and there is no wish to extend that love to other countries and other people, then that is a form of selfishness.

The supreme guiding principle is love which expresses itself in service, compassion, humility, tolerance and cooperation, seeking harmony wherever it can. Love is the greatest power in the universe.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers

Silver Birch: Prejudice

“PREJUDICE must be broken down, error must be fought. Truth will advance, however slowly and painfully, because it is truth. That which is worth having is worth achieving. Achievement comes through struggle. The prize is to him who dares and conquers, not to those who fear and are tempted to shirk their difficulties. Life is a school. Through hardship and stuggle, striving and difficulty adverse circumstance, storms and tempests, the spirit finds itself.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
