There are several new culture-related mechanics: Tourism exerts a kind of offensive cultural pressure on the civilizations around you. Tourism is generated by Wonders and buildings that have Great Works or Artifacts housed in them. Tourism is increased with Open Borders agreements (+25%), Trade Routes (+25%), and shared religion. Tourism is countered by the foreign civilization's own Culture; your Tourism is measured against that Culture, and ranked from "Exotic" (10%) to "Familiar" (30%) to "Popular" (60%) to "Influential" (100%+). (There is also a new higher level seen in recent shots, "Dominant" (200%), but it's not clear what this means.) If your Tourism exceeds the other civilization's defensive Culture, then you are Influential; become Influential with all other civilizations to win a Culture Victory uzumati.

The area that had formerly been considered the Orient ("the East") became the Near East, as the interests of the European powers interfered with Qing China and Meiji Japan for the first time, in the 19th century. [17] Thus, the Sino-Japanese War in 1894–1895 occurred in the Far East, while the troubles surrounding the decline of the Ottoman Empire simultaneously occurred in the Near East. [18] The term Middle East, in the mid-19th century, included the territory east of the Ottoman Empire, but West of China— Greater Persia and Greater India —is now used synonymously with "Near East" in most languages From the Stone Age to King George III: A History of Weymouth and Its Neighbours (Paperback) - Common.

The tra ining that enabled remote viewings and other psychic feats ruined many scientific careers, as scientists received direct personal experience that the materialistic paradigm that guides mainstream science is false.� Brian and I had our first remote viewing experiences performing the same exercise in the 1970s.� I performed experiments regarding the human ability to generate a subtle energy that prevents rotting, and was able to generate great heat with my hands, which others have developed to far higher levels of mastery .� Brian performed similar experiments and advocated a scientific approach to investigating such phenomena.� Nearly all of my fellow travelers in the FE field had some kind of experience like that in their late teens or early twenties.� Most were scientists or scientists-in-training.� When people have experiences such as those, they will never accept the materialistic assumptions that dominate mainstream science.� The giants of physics, that hardest of the hard sciences, fully realized the orthodox framework�s limitations and all held �heretical� ideas that could be called mystical .� Many organizations have sought to remedy the affliction of mainstream science that views consciousness as a mere epiphenomenon of brain activity.� I met Brian at a conference for one such organization.� It has been called bridging the gap between science and religion, and other terms.� I see it as bringing science and consciousness together.� Brian was a speaker at that conference, and his talk�s subject was the need for a new science. [889] � Until mainstream science allows consciousness into its paradigm and rejects its materialistic assumptions, it will be playing a small game, as the greatest science of all may be the science of consciousness.� Becau se the subject needs to be addressed and I have been involved with it, I will describe what I am aware of regarding the UFO and extraterrestrial (�ET�) issue.� The era of UFOs generally began with the Roswell incident of 1947 .� The CIA was founded a few months later.� In the early 1990s, an emergency room doctor, Steven Greer, mounted an effort called the Disclosure Project to inform the public about the UFO/ET issue, and Brian was prominently involved, for good reason .� After years of briefing officials from many institutions, including the Vatican, United Nations, White House, Pentagon, and the USA�s Congress (and he never received a scoffing or disbelieving reaction), secret congressional hearings were held so that witnesses could testify (and key Disclosure Project members developed strange and fatal cancer cases immediately afterward).� Ed Mitchell, who walked on the Moon, co-chaired the hearings and has been quite vocal about the ET presence.� One Disclosure Project witness was one of the first astronauts, and other astronauts have described their experiences, at least of those who could talk publicly about them.� I am aware of recent astronaut close encounters that have been classified, as confessed by the astronauts.� Brian had no doubt that his brush with death and the UFO-research �offer� were related Contemporary Germany: Politics and Culture.
