You do not have missionaries in Hinduism. Oldest West African Civilization/settlement by KidStranglehold: 9:33pm On Jun 11, 2013 The trade of the Phoenicians with the west coast of Africa had for its principal objects the procuring of ivory, of elephant, lion, leopard, and deer-skins, and probably of gold. Many ye ars ago, after surviving my FE adventures, beginning to understand the milieu, and trading notes with fellow travelers, I began to suspect that what I had experienced on the mundane level of discovering that personal integrity is the world�s scarcest commodity was only a hint of something far more vast, even putting aside my numerous paranormal experiences. �I received the impression that the zero-point field was divine in nature, and that if a sentient species did not approach the issue with sufficient divine intention, then it could not access the field or access it for long.� The GCs might be doing humanity a favor by acting as some kind of integrity threshold that humanity must clear before the path to FE will open.� Ten like Dennis or a hundred like Brian combining their efforts and humanity would have had FE by now, but there are probably not that many like them on Earth.� I began to suspect that the problem was really a lack of integrity and enlightenment, in ways that go far beyond practical notions of those issues.� I have consequently been trying to walk and advocate the enlightenment route.� Mine is more from an activist/academic perspective, not a messianic or mystical master approach, or the hero�s journey.� But the masters� teachings, at least those that the priesthoods have not distorted, I believe can be highly relevant.� Some kind of spiritual grounding is probably necessary to pursue FE, but I would not advocate receiving it through organized religions.� If love is understood as the best of all possible feelings, and acts from the heart are recognized as the most powerful that we can achieve, that is probably sufficient spiritual understanding, and achieving some mystical experiences may be critical for awakening the aspirant .� Anything less than a divinely intended approach toward FE may not work, for reasons that go far beyond organized suppression or the public�s inertia.� That is just something that slowly dawned on me, which I cannot prove to anybody, but it guides my thinking and efforts.� Also, sources that I respect have stated that the means become the ends, which is consistent with what I learned during my adventures, has guided me from the beginning, and is likely why I survived my journey as long as I have.

One chimpa nzee and gorilla behavior that can be difficult to comprehend, mentally and emotionally, is male murder of infants.� If a chimp or gorilla encounters an infant that he knows he did not sire, he will kill it if he can. �That behavior is also common in monkeys .� Gorillas have a potentate/harem social organization, and when a male matures he is usually ejected from that gorilla society, but might become subordinate to the silverback patriarch (some troupes have more than one dominant silverback, and even up to seven silverbacks in one troupe has been observed).� Bachelor gorillas can try to unseat a silverback to steal his harem, and if successful, the new potentate will kill all the infants he can.� The average female gorilla will lose an infant to murder by a male in her lifetime. [520] � In chimp society, when a female is sexually receptive, she will mate with all males in the troupe, especially the dominant ones, so that every important male suspects that the infant might be his, and thus will not kill it. [521] � That strategy has been nicknamed, �Who�s Your Daddy?� [522] � The strategies of dominant males seem to work, as far as producing the most offspring.� Paternity testing of chimpanzees, for instance, shows that alpha males and their �lieutenants� sire nearly all offspring in a band. [523] If a silverback dies, either from natural causes or murder by rivals, or chimps murder the males of a rival band and take the females as �booty,� the infants of the dead males will all be killed.� And the next activity tends to boggle people�s minds: the females who lost their infants will then mate with the killers. [524] � That behavior is not confined to great apes: lions (and housecats) and bears also do it.� Humans cannot imagine a woman mating with her child�s killer, but it is standard behavior in those species and provides stark evidence for the Selfish Gene Hypothesis .� A male chimp or gorilla will not invest time and energy in raising offspring that are not his.� Killing them makes the female sexually receptive, as she has a primordial urge to produce offspring.� Female chimps and gorillas need protection from other males, and a male strong enough to kill her mate gets the spoils, including her, and she will then mate with the killer and bear his young, and can stay mated for life.� Female chimps will kill each other�s infants sometimes, as they play their own dominance games, but mating with the killers of their offspring stupefies humans and makes Darwin�s �war of nature� observations difficult to deny.� Male orangutans will not kill infants that they did not sire, but orangutan females are constantly under threat of being raped by non-dominant males (called unflanged ) The Reissue of Harper's Weekly: A History of Civilization, August 15, 1863 (Vol. VII, no. 346 [ V. 3, #34 ]).

Whatever the cause, within a few hundred years of the abandonment of the last Olmec cities, successor cultures had become firmly established.
