Book Recommendation – Noah’s Garden: Restoring the Ecology of Our Own Back Yards
“You plant nut treees and I’ll plant spruce, you keep a berry thicket and I’ll do the tall grass, or the bog, the woodlot, the crowds of fruiting shrubs and beds of wildflowers. But let us weave them together into something big enough to matter by connecting each patch with others at the corners and along the boundaries. This is the rich, new landscape; this is the new kind of gardener who asks not whether he should plant this ornament or another but which patch is missing from his community, how he can provide it, and how animals will move from his patch to the next.
This is the ark.
This is not someone else’s problem. We—you and I and everyone who has a yard of any size—own a big chunk of this country. Suburban development has wrought habitat destruction on a grand scale. As these tracts expand, they increasingly squeeze the remaining natural ecosystems, fragment them, sever corridors by which plants and animals might refill the voids we have created. To reverse this process—to reconnnect as many plant and animal species as we can to rebuild intelligent suburban ecosystems—requires a new kind of garden, new techniques of gardening, and, I emphasize, a new kind of gardener.
Yards and gardens patched with grass and stitched with hedges all across America constitute a vast, nearly continuous, and terribly impoverished ecosystem for which we ourselves, with our mowers, shears, and misguided choice of plants, are responsible. We cannot in fairness rail against those who destroy the rain forest or threaten the spotted owl when we have made our own yards uninhabitable. Yet how quickly we could grow this land, spangle it with blazing stars, stripe it with red winterberries and white summersweet, let it wave again with grass!”
This book is a celebration of erections across the world, in whatever shape or form the erection takes, whether it is a piece of architecture, an artwork, a temple etc.
Here is an explanation of why architectural and artistic erections are so important and why they have been celebrated and revered since time has begun.
This book also recounts poetic work, and poems and stories which are written about famous erections, across the world erections can be seen from obelisks and pyramids in ancient Egypt, to temples across Asia and India.
The book also endeavours to explain why the word erection refers to so many different things and why these different things with which the word refers to are linked in some way, it is also important to note which colours architects or artists use when trying to become more creative in creating their artistic or architectural erections.
This section explores the idea that Irish Bards and Druids have thought the world and much like we have monks in Christianity and Buddhism and Guru’s in India teaching the world today, within the ancient world were Bards who travelled the world teaching humanity.
While observing maps of the supercontinent Pangaea, it is interesting to see how the world looked 200 million years ago, wherein if we consider that the pyramid cultures in Africa and Meso-America existed over 200 million years ago, we find that all the pyramids are beside the ocean in these maps.
We could conclude that these cultures are this old, while they all worship some sort of reptile within their pantheons, much like how we today worship the image of man as our god because man is the most dominant species on the planet right now.
These cultures worshiped the likes of the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl and Kukulcan, because the reptile or serpent was the most dominant species 200 million years ago, whereby at the edge of each continent in Pangaea is a dominant pyramid culture, these cultures include the Inca’s, Mayan’s, Aztec’s, and Ancient Egyptians.
This book reflects upon the idea of how certain peoples, are connected to a cosmic cycle which enlightens them within bringing them back to the truth and God, while reflecting upon my awakening and recounting this journey of discovery I became convinced that the island of Ireland lay very close to a once known ancient global trading center or civilization named Atlantis or the land of Punt as the ancient Egyptians knew it and that some Irish were also connected to this cosmic cycle enlightening them within, bringing new ideas and technologies into the world and reestablishing old knowledge and languages which had been forgotten.
Upon this realization that Ireland was close to the center of a vast trading empire and kingdom, and realizing that there perhaps and possibly is a Gaelic or Celtic kingdom which stretches throughout the world, to lands in America to the west and as far east as Asia.
This idea of how Ireland was once at the center of our Galaxy, “the Milky way” is reflected upon when reading about the “Battle of the Boyne”, where Protestant forces eventually triumphed over the ruling Irish, while some recount how this battle was a cosmic battle and that the river Boyne itself once ran through the Galactic center.
It may also be worth noting, how the word Gaelic and Galactic have similar linguistic constructs, alluding to a relationship here within the Irish language and its links to cosmic or Galactic events, portraying the idea that the Gaelic cross itself describes our suns transit across the Galactic center, how the cross is the Galactic cross and the circle behind it is the sun, how Christ may have visited Ireland in a more ancient time as he awoke through life within his spiritual transit across the Galactic plane or cross and that the term Irish may not originate in Ireland but may be something which describes a visiting race who have links to the “Rishi’s” in India who may have once called Christ Sri, Re’s or Irish.
