Not so Metaphysical Post from boondocking blogger

This post was published on my other blog by mistake. I compose on Windows Live Writer, using the boondocking blogger template as it is black on white. The colour scheme of this blog is not rendered well in the draft mode and this makes it harder to see. This time however, I published the post to the other blog without thinking. As a matter of interest, I looked at the proposed links for world map representations and found one that was most appealing. And is probably more accurate as it was created by NASA. It is the Winkel-tripel-projection at

Surfing the net can yield surprising results. Having been skeptical about anything that I could not apprehend through the five senses myself for many years, it was almost a modus vivendi to doubt. To ask for proof, even if seldom receiving any, but heck! I had to support my belief system! Or, shall I say disbelief?
After experiences that I would term as shattering as they negated all that I had been living by, I returned, after 20 years, to asking questions. And I kept at it. Still do. Now, I’m interested in learning all about searching for possibilities, especially since my exposure to things unfathomable to perception (mine) through the accepted five senses has brought me surprising discoveries... I know that I mentioned Winston Wu in a previous post. He simply is using the tactics that I used for debunking anything that didn’t fit in my own concept of the universe. Thankfully, I’m now more accepting that there isn’t just one version of the Universe and that there might be other “realities out there”.  The ultimate Reality, however, might still be beyond our ken.
However, in this post, I want to mention Lloyd Pye, the Hominid and Starchild researcher, who has a very interesting video about climates across the map, and eventually relates it all to the map that we use in the Western World. It’s mind-blowing. It makes it awfully hard to refute the findings, i.e. the accepted concept that the Mercator map (dating back to 1569) is representing the Earth continents correctly. It appears all wrong! Period. I recall that years ago, I did wonder why, if the Equator sits halfway between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, in fact delineating them, the physical representation of this hypothetical line should be so LOW down on the world map. But it was no more than a fleeting thought. (I was young and foolish, in those days.)  
I had seen the Peter map, or its twin, claiming that our Europeo-centric concept was all wrong. However, since this was the period of my ardent socialist days, I eventually relegated it to “Things to Check Out…Later”. This is much later, but never too late. Enough said. I hope that you check this out for yourselves at

Fascinating. Not exactly the most esthetic, or even accurate as was pointed out to me. But an eye-opener.
