..."Nothing was gradually perfecting the art of silent communication, or perhaps it would be truer to say that the art of silent communication was gradually perfecting Nothing. He had passed through a critical threshold when he learned - or was taught - to converse with any part nature's Kingdom, silently; with plants, trees, rivers, mountains, insects <["bees, in particular"]> and animals, or even with creatures in distant places. <["methocantordusts"]> Once he had passed through this critical threshold, Nothing had discovered that distance itself was not a problem; and then, soon afterwards, that time was not a problem either. So he could quite unselfconsciously converse, in a manner of speaking - but without himself actually uttering even a single word - with other lands and with other times. He had no idea how far distant planets, each of these in their turn would 'speak' silently back to him, or all would join in a silent conversation, all speaking together but in such a way that the conversation of each, and of the whole amalgam, remained perfectly clear. Communication with another age - either backwards or forwards in time as time is normally measured - was just as simple, though it always helped to have at least one definite <["cultural"]> reference point."...

Later in my book _The Orion Mystery_, I also demonstrated that the best fit for the Giza Pyramids/Nile pattern with the Orion's belt/Milky Way pattern occurred when the sky was pushed back in time (i.e., precessed) to the epoch of 10,500 BCE. There were good reasons for doing so. The ancient Egyptians, for example, constantly referred to a remote golden age they called Zep Tepi, the "First Time" of Osiris, which they believed hadlong predated the Pyramid Age. Osiris was Orion, and the Great Pyramid had a shaft directed to Orion at the meridian. To me, this "silent" astro-architectural language seemed to be spelling out, "Here is Osiris, in the sky when these pyramids were built, yet know, too, that his origins are rooted in the First Time." But the First Time of what? How could the stars of Orion have a First Time? Well they can. And they do. Provided, of course, that you can read through the allegorical "language" of the ancients via the symbolic architecture and the related Pyramid Texts. Allegory, to put it in another way, is the "Q-Basics" of the master astronomers who designed the Giza complex. When the stars of Orion are observed at the meridian in the precise manner that the ancient Egyptian astronomers did over many centuries, they could not help noting that these stars crossed the south meridian at different altitudes at different epoch. This is, of course, is due to the phenomenon of precession. In short, the stars of Orion can be said to have a starting point or "beginning" at the nadir of their precessional cycle. Simple calculations show that this occurred in 10,500 BCE.

What pets seem to pick up is intentions. They pick up when people are about to go away on holiday even before they've started packing. They pick up when people want to take them to the vet, and will often hide. Dogs often pick up when they're going to be taken for a walk. Dogs can be trained to respond not just to words and whistles, but even to silent, mental commands. Many dogs and cats seem to know when a person they are bonded to has died, even when this happens far away. They seem to be sensitive to changes in the field that connects them to their people. This field is affected by the activities, emotions and intentions of their people - whether they're coming back or going away, whether they've died, whether they're in pain or trouble, whether they want to play. The animals seem to be picking up not specific messages but rather general changes in the tension of the field...

Wizards are clear on their intention. They know what it is they really need; what underlies all their many wants and desires. Wizards hold this intention in their mind. And then let go. No attachment to how or when; just a simple openness to whatever may be -- and a silent delight in the synchronicities that come to be.
