I would note the agreement with fascination, but couldn't honestly
conclude that the information was correct. However, I do find the whole
subject extremely interesting.

No, I wasn't aware of either of these. What did Cayce have to say about
the "keepers?'

Even with hard physical evidence our understanding of history is always
relative and incomplete. How do you define "correctness" of view or
"accurate" sources of information, especially with regard to deep
history? Historical studies all have their own fontiers of the unknown.
They blend imperceptibly into the mythic. The older I get the more
comfortable I am living with what is not known. I'm not saying we
shouldn't continually try to discover history, but realize that with
each discovery come more questions and a shifting of the boundary of the
known/unknown. History is a social construct.

There are lots of people like that, especially now that the millenium is
upon us. They are encountering their own fear. They are feeling

Loving kindness. Compassion. Wisdom.
