  1. Before building the hut I decided to first add the traffic lights for the river vessels. Their wires were routed under and up through the hut floor. Outside the hut, on the surrounding balconies are enclosures that house equipment for operating and maintaining the bridge. These were shaped from blocks of wood, and painted bridge grey.
  2. The wiring from the span substructure can now be routed to and through the operations hut flooring. The lateral (sideways) bumper rollers were made and attached to the span.
  3. Lets assume Jesus Christ was an enlightened person. Unfortunately, much of the time he was not understood, yet they sensed his truth. Not much was written about what he had said over a three year period. I would say that most of it went over their heads. The bible even mentions how he got frustrated with his disciples for not understanding him over that three year period. My conjecture is that his life reference was that of truth and love. While others, including his disciples, had a life reference of denial and fear. An enlightened being is lit from the inside. Their reference point is love and truth and from this they see life crystal clear. Others are in the dim / dark. Only a flicker of light is expressed whenever they are genuine. Their main reference point is fear and deception (denial) and from this they see life as a struggle through the dim/dark (the unknown). So often, the enlightened one, would be seen as someone foreign, being misunderstood, using unusual words and phrases. Some even see them as simpletons because they don't make sense. Their words are often paradoxical because they can see both sides of light and dark. They can be seen as an enigma, and those with an ego to protect will feel threatened by them. Unfortunately, history shows us many examples of how the world has a way of silencing them.
  4. Can you sign up for both? Then when its time to go to college decide then which one to go with. Something to think about - Sometimes when you do not know where you are heading, ask yourself where you are coming from.
  5. Denial. Ego got glimpsed (Oh!) in between unhappy and happy faces of expression. "Are you alright"? "Oh! Yes, of course I am. I am fine".
  6. Thank you Annetta for your response. I am trying to keep it simple, yet it is complicated by its need to be operational and childproof. The later I am still working on. Annetta, I have done many things in my life, especially in my youth. This project is rekindling those old skills and knowledge, but somehow it feels different this time. As if there is more insight/wisdom (learnt from previous errors), patience, less doubt (or less concern about getting it wrong). Because of these new experiences, this project is quite exciting and revealing about my true nature.
  7. This will sound terrible to most, but I do not have breakfast if I do not work hard that morning. If I do, such as a fast 40-75 km cycle ride, I like, after the ride, two boiled eggs with one buttered toast and then one Vegemite on toast, washed down with a cup of coffee.
  8. Lets assume awareness is knowing what is true, and creation is the expression, or by product, of what is true. Then what makes the awareness turn into creation? Conviction, belief + faith. In a person it is conviction (the agreement that what is true is, or will be, real).
  9. Now for a more ______ phase. I am not sure what the right word is that contains both apprehension + curiosity. The top portion of the bridge span is quite busy in terms of the parts that will occupy it. The whole creative process is both worked out on paper beforehand, yet a lot of it is still ad-lib. On top of the span is an operations hut, balconies, gangways, railings, longitudinal and lateral bumper rollers (to keep span in alignment), and a light switch for operating the traffic lights for passing vessels. I used 3mm MDF board for gangways and hut. Matchsticks for railing posts. Below, you can see that the cable anchoring points have been installed. Next to the anchoring points are longitudinal bumper rollers. These were adapted from microswitch actuating arms. The black U-shape device is an optocoupler (light switch). As the span is coming together, so too is my confidence in creating a model.
  10. "Mahatma Gandhi's life achievement stands unique in political history. He has invented a completely new and humane means for the liberation war of an oppressed country, and practiced it with greatest energy and devotion. The moral influence he had on the consciously thinking human being of the entire civilized world will probably be much more lasting than it seems in our time with its overestimation of brutal violent forces. Because lasting will only be the work of such statesmen who wake up and strengthen the moral power of their people through their example and educational works. We may all be happy and grateful that destiny gifted us with such an enlightened contemporary, a role model for the generations to come. Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood." - Einstein
  11. Usually, in commercialism "to find a way to add more value to peoples lives than anyone else does" is an exploitative ploy. The best value to anybody's life is truth. However, most do not want to hear that. That biblical saying 'love thy enemy', seems to be a strange statement. But there is a reason for loving your enemy. The enemy is more likely to tell you the truth about yourself than a so-called best friend who only wants to appease you - regardless if its a lie. The best value to add to a person's life is the truth. Yet in commercialism that is not seen as the best way for financial success.
  12. @Afonso Being. When you let go of your doubts, fears, apprehension, and other forms of tension, there is no room for your Being to express its truth. The Being, is the vehicle which expresses truth. However, since truth IS and has nothing lacking, it also has no needs. Not even to express itself (unless summoned to). So while we are tense, taking up centre stage, the Being is waiting for self to get off itself to make room. As soon as there is room the Being is free to present its truth. The truth presented solves all related questions of doubt, fears, etc. Suddenly all fits into place. The outcome is often called creativity or productivity, but I would call it this 'value' Being. Being the true you (slight pun there).
  13. I only did a quick research into it and found the above website describing how the Egely Wheel works. From what I read, I can see how thermodynamics causing air currents to flow which effects the finely balanced fingered-vane (wheel). That is, the wheel turns due to air currents. Heat from a human is a result of bioenergy activity of the human organism. So in this regard I would say that bioenergy (heat) has an indirect influence on the wheel. Indirect because it is the flow of air which effects the wheel's rotation. Heated air rises and cooler air rushes in to replace the risen air - hence air currents. IMHO
  14. There are several reasons why a person would want to be a sage. They include, money, peer status, glorification, and/or vanity. None of which is what a real sage is. A sage is what others have labelled the wise person. A wise person would not label self as wise/sage, but exploitative if self is let loose. A real sage knows more truth than knowledge (like an academic). They know that if they label their self, or accept the label, as a sage they have already fallen from the wise to the foolish; for their focus on truth has turned to focus on self. IMHO I would let go of such wants and just focus on what is true - including your own desires.
