Pretty interesting stuff. I have to admit when I contemplate information like this, and black energy, etc., I find myself becoming like primitive woman in my awe and yes, fear, and am ready to start talking to the gods who live in the trees to protect me from all this vastness.I'm not really the Modern Woman I would like to be. It is often hard for me to wrap my mind around today's findings. Almost makes one ready to give up being an athiest. Almost.Marti in Mexico
