Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life. There’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?

I may not see you too soon. Take care!

What is Eternal

[Crushed by the dilemma he finds himself in and unable to reach a decision, Beethoven tries to recall the particular actions in his life that have led to his damnation. In anger, he confronts Fate for having dealt him such a cruel hand in life. Taken a back by his accusations, she offers to review his life with him and to change anything that he wishes to change.]
[Delighted with this unexpected proposition, Beethoven accepts. When she asks where he would like to start, Beethoven says the first thing he would change is his childhood. Fate takes him back through time where he finds himself as a young child sitting at a piano. He has just been cruelly slapped by a tutor for having failed to receive an appointment to the emperor’s court. His tutor is trying to create a new child wonder, similar to Mozart, but unlike Mozart, Beethoven is an awkward and gangly youth. Now, sitting alone at the piano, he is trying to console himself by playing a melody that he finds soothing. Beethoven recognizes the melody as the future Sixth Symphony and sitting down next to the child completes the tune. The child smiles at this kindly adult and after they talk for awhile, asks if they might meet again and finish the song. Beethoven reassures the child that one day that just might possibly happen.]

AND WHAT GOOD IS A LIFE
THAT LEAVES NOTHING BEHIND
NOT A THOUGHT OR A DREAM
THAT MIGHT ECHO IN TIME

THE YEARS AND THE HOURS
THE SECONDS AND MINUTES
AND EVERYTHING THAT
MY LIFE HAS PLACED IN IT
BETRAYED
BETRAYED
BETRAYED

THE THINGS I HAVE DONE
THE PLACES I’VE BEEN
THE COST OF MY DREAMS
THE WEIGHT OF MY SINS

AND EVERYTHING THAT
I’VE GATHERED IN LIFE
COULD IT BE LOST
COULD IT BE LOST IN THIS
COULD IT BE LOST IN THIS
NIGHT

The Lost Symbol

I’ve done it. I’ve managed to _actually_ read a non-IT book, this holiday. .pdf format on the laptop, 2 days. Wonderful book! And I say this because it really captivated me as well as because I’ve actually _read_ a book after so much time.

The book is written by the well-known author Dan Brown, and it is called The Lost Symbol. I must confess I haven’t read the DaVinci Code, but I have read the Angels&Daemons book, and this guy has talent in telling a story. It was really captivating and interesting; once I’ve got my hands on the book I wasn’t able to let it, until the story finished. What I liked the most about this story is that Dan Brown reads a lot, tries to learn as much as possible about the subject. I was happy to see references to old books that I have tried to find myself back in highschool, books like Zohar, books belonging to Rosecrucians, old Hebrew books or the Newton’s interpretation of the Bible.

I also liked to see that Albrecht Durer’s work was the center point of the book, not just mentioned somewhere on the fly. The book combines the mythology, the science, the history, combines references of the scientists works with the art and the alchemy and everything is so realistically linked and connected.

One of the ideas many may argue while reading this book is _how real is it_? Ok, the guy documented and did a lot of interesting and catchy connections. Still, are they real? I mean, did you visit the Capitol in Washington DC? Did you enter the basement of the Smithsonian Museum? I for sure, haven’t. Maybe mister Brown did…nevertheless.

One of the questions I was asking myself while reading the book was: is this real, was Dan Brown actually did the connections after investigating all of this stuff? Was he gathering all this amount of information for years, and finally he was able to do the connections and create the story? Or…he just imagined everything, combining pieces just to look real?

Now, I am not in the position of saying how much of the stories in the book are real or confirmed, though I had started this kind of quest when I had time, in highschool. As per my experience, I can only say this is very well documented and sounds veridic.

…And, why not? Aren’t we allowed to imagine that this stuff is real? That everything is connected? That this Mason people actually gather all those secrets, for the sake of human kind? That Bible and Zohar, and all of those books actually refer to us, Humans, as Gods and the purpose we have here, on Earth, is to re-gain our God-like consciousness?
