Earth’s First 3.7 Billion Years. IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS A SINGULARITY.
No time or space; our present physical laws did not apply. Then about 12-20 billion years ago or so, the Universe rapidly expanded from a tiny dot to a rapidly expanding thing we call the universe in the ___

At first there was just Hydrogen. The Hydrogen condensed into billions of local large balls of super-dense Hydrogen in which fusion reactions forming Helium began and stars were born. Other elements up to the atomic weight of Iron were produced in these stars.About 5 to 6 billion years ago. One of these stars began to run out of Hydrogen fuel. It expanded to a red giant and then collapsed on itself and exploded in a supernova. In this supernova, like billions that have occurred elsewhere in our Universe, all of the other elements were created.
II. The mass of new matter again collapsed into a disk shape mass of dust and gas (a). The center became superheated and formed a new star, our sun (b). From this disk of matter the planets began to condense (c), according to the widely supported nebular hypothesis of Immanuel Kant and Pierre-Simon Laplace. The two strongest points in favor of this idea are: 1) that the disk began by rotating in one direction and the rotation of all of the planets around the sun follows the original disk; and 2) that because the disk flattened out as time progresses, all of the orbits of the planets (except Pluto) lie more or less in the same plane (d). Pluto is possibly a captured giant asteroid.

III. The earth condensed in four basic steps. 1) It began to accrete from the nebular cloud as particles smashed into each other forming so-called planetesimals. These in turn collided with each other and as their mass grew began to gather material from the nebular disk. 2) As the mass of the Earth grew so did it’s gravitational force and the Earth began to compress itself into a smaller and denser body. This happened about 4.5 billion years ago. 3) In the third step the compression itself began to heat the interior of the Earth; also there was heat generated by radioactive decay. The interior of the earth began to melt. Because iron is the heaviest of the common elements that make up the Earth, as the Earth began to melt droplets of melted iron began to sink towards the center of the earth, where they condensed. 4) Proceeding slowly at first it sped up to catastrophic proportions – hence it is called the iron catastrophe. Note that 3 and 4 in the figures to the right are cross sections.

It was the iron catastrophe that set up the overall structure of the Earth.

All during this time the earth was still being bombarded by asteroids and comets, a process that still occurs but at a much lower (although still significant!) rate.

At some point however, the Moon formed. Exactly how that happened is a major subject of debate. One theory claims that the Moon is a tiny planet captured by the Earth’s gravity. The other is that the moon was literally splashed out of the Earth by the impact of a Mars-sized planet. The latter theory is favored now because it explains some odd but important features of the Earth’s and Moon’s chemical composition.

The Earth was reborn during the iron catastrophe and maybe again by the formation of the Moon. Any trace of surface structure was wiped out by the melting.

IV. However, the crust finally solidified by about 3.7 billion years ago. Gasses pouring out of volcanoes and fissures, along with lava, began to accumulate, perhaps added to by the impact of a few giant comets (which are mostly gas).

The gases that accumulated were those we still find coming out of volcanoes:

Water vapor (H2O)
Hydrogen chloride (HCl)
Carbon Monoxide (CO)
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Nitrogen (N2)

These gases combined to form:

Methane (CH4)
Ammonia (NH4)
Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN)

This atmosphere would be quickly fatal to us.

V. As the crust cooled water would condense and accumulate as oceans. This happened very soon after the crust solidified.

VI. LIFE EVOLVES

The origin of life is shrouded in mystery.

Adamite – Adam – Man of Red Earth

….underneath the layers and layers of papered Imperial maps, each demarcating, each delineating assumed possession of the land that never belongs to anyone, there lies the red earth. The soil of our souls.

….some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, ‘Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.’ But he answered them, ‘An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was for three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth.
The Commendation from the funeral liturgy (Orthodox Kontakion for the Departed)
Give rest, 0 Christ, to your servant(s) with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting. You only are immortal, the creator and maker of mankind; and we are mortal, formed of the earth, and to earth shall we return. For so did you ordain when you created me, saying, “You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” All of us go down to the dust; yet even at the grave we make our song: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Etymology of the word Adam

Adam \a-dam\ is pronounced AD-um. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Adam is “earth”. From “adama”. In Hebrew, it is a generic term for “man”. Biblical: in the Genesis account, he was the first man created from the red earth of Eden
Land is an emotional issue.

We are born from it, we long to return to the land where we are born, we will shed blood to defend “our” land, and we end our lives by being returned to it.
Imperial powers through the ages have laid claim to land, with bloody spears and cartography pens. Lines on maps have severed tribes and clans and thus created cauldrons that have boiled over with bloodshed and even genocide. As an African, I remember Rwanda, and I can only imagine the earlier traumas of human trafficked souls ripped from their soil and transplanted on foreign lands to plant crops that they would never share, and build mansions they would never inhabit.
Land is an emotional issue.

Is it because we still echo the fact that we are Adamite, red clay people?
“Formed of the earth and to earth we shall return”

We are soiled souls.

In one of the great sychronicitous (metaphoric) ironies where mythology and science intersect, earth scientists have determined that the shift from the only life forms being bacteria and blue green algae, to more complex forms like the Eukaryotes of which we are members, occured 1.9 billion years ago when the Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere dropped, Oxygen increased and RED BEDS formed.

Red beds are very shallow-water, river, or soil deposits in which the iron has combined with O2 to form red iron oxide.Reference here We are indeed Adam, red oxide earth people!

So underneath the layers and layers of papered Imperial maps, each demarcating, each delineating assumed possession of the land that never belongs to anyone, there lies the red earth. The soil of our souls. We will never hold title to it, we are not entitled to even assume it is ours.

The ancient land, the seed bed of all origins is the fabric of being that cannot be posessed by transient clay mannikins like us.

Africans knew this before the missionaries came. In Africa, Modimo, Camata, Nkulunkulu (the bantu names of God) lived in the earth and not in the sky. Caves were wombs and portals to the mysteries of life. That is why, in their depths, red clay adamites danced and painted.
It is into these depths that Jesus goes to find us. Like Jonah in the whale, Jesus in the earth belly is questing to the very depths of our genological and geological origins to bring us back to our real senses.

Mud caked, soiled and fecund with potential, he breathes into our clay once more and cries.

Live! Adam Live!

Wake up and heal the land from which you came, and to which you are returning.


51st Anniversary of est or B-est

What is “B-EST” – 51 years ago est was founded

The intention was to join in solidarity in order to rekindle the spirit of service to others and to the planet that fanned the flame of so many of us during those years, and is so desperately needed again now.

Erhard Seminar Training

controversial founder, Werner Erhard. (est was one of the very first intensive consciousness seminars of the Human Potential Movement in the early 70s, the prototype for hundreds of spin-offs and workshops that continue to be offered today.)

who they are is the voice in their head that continuously narrates the story of their lives, the voice that speaks within, calling itself “I.” This seems perfectly obvious; who else could I be, if not the “I” that thinks and speaks, makes plans and decisions, expresses preferences and dislikes, and carves out one’s life path based on all of the available data and experience from the past?

former est trainer Stewart Emery once paraphrased Jesus, “The truth may set you free, but it will piss you off first.”

est called this other domain of experience “the Self,” distinguishing it from “the mind,’ the latter suddenly seen from a new vantage point, and observed as little more than a conditioned, near machine-like set of responses to stimuli, harboring the illusion of choice and free will, but actually operating on automatic pilot. Yet the power of this illusion is vast; our minds interpret events, draw conclusions about life and reality that we accept as true, and we then behave accordingly, looking for and finding evidence to validate our positions, no matter how unworkable or non-productive those views might be.

“What is, is, and what isn’t, isn’t” was one of the Zen-like aphorisms of the est training. To cultivate the ability to simply “be with” what is and what isn’t, and to grant people the room to be exactly the way they are and exactly the way they aren’t, provides a great freedom. It releases us from the impossible struggle to change everything and everyone in order to conform to our preference for how all of life should be, were we in charge.

Hence, the famous dictum of the Third Chinese Patriarch, often quoted at meditation retreats: “The Great Way is not difficult for he [or she] who has no preferences.” Imagine, if you will, the immense frustration you would undergo daily if you were absolutely committed to your preference that the sky be green instead of blue; that your mother be some other way rather than the way she actually is; that you yourself were some idealized version of you rather than who and how you really are. Imagine being upset that a river won’t run upstream. As Werner put it, it’s a whole lot easier to “ride the horse in the direction it’s going.”

The intention is to join in solidarity in order to rekindle the spirit of service to others and to the planet that fanned the flame of so many of us during those years, and is so desperately needed again now.


When will we get back to being our best?
