999 Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras is A-Ma: Alchemy of Love & Tree of Life: a Journey into Field of Dreams combined!
"Seated on a panel with her fellow writers, Maltese-Serbian novelist Nataša Pantović has been known to use slam poetry to perform her poetic body of work. A bridge builder between East and West, following ancient archaeological findings, she often dives into historic settings more than 2,000 years back in time.
In her novel, Ama, the 52-year-old author makes a bold swerve into less-travelled territory. She chooses for her protagonists Ama, an African priestess, living in China’s Macao in the 17th century; Ruben, a Portuguese Jesuit priest; and Fr Benedict, an Orthodox Christian.
The book explores the rapidly-growing Macao, of the Age of Enlightenment.
Both Hesse and Tolstoy were my first spiritual gurus. Through their deep insights and soulful messages, for the first time I experienced the world of spiritual growth and deep contemplation. Many artists have inspired my writings, the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Lao Tzu and Giordano Bruno. Pythagoras lived on the crossroads of civilisations, as I see us, and he has given us his fascinating research into music and numbers. With my deep respect towards ancient worlds, Pythagoras with his ancient Egyptian mystical knowledge had to be my protagonist.
In your novel, you follow the famous reform of the Chinese calendar during the 17th century?
I started writing this as a 17th-century novel. In this novel, it was easy to write from the point of view of the main character, a priest or Ama’s mother or a man without a name or a goddess, Lilith.
I wanted to bring in the many first-person singular voices, starting with an animal ‒ a bat, as a story-teller, moving to Pythagoras, to people who meet Ama within the setting of her coffee house. This narrative framework is 50 % inspired by the ‘=yin’ mindset; and 50%t factual, male and mind-driven.
What is it within this black main character that fascinates you so much?
Ama lived with me for 10 years before I knew I would adopt two kids from Ethiopia,
Was Athens black at the time of the ancient Greeks or was it full of Slavs that during the Dark Ages were not allowed to have their own European history?
All my characters do have strong political, ideological and moral commitments, their ideas are ground-breaking; it is a science against the Church, male against female, East against West conversation.
Holding up a mirror to society of ancient worlds can be fanatical or too obvious within the storytelling environment, so I had to break the rhythm with myths, with art, with dreams.
This novel is, of course, about the search for truth, but from the goddess perspective, about love and union, of the priestesses first commandment “Do not kill...”
In this novel you explore ‘Western’ ancient Greek philosophers. Can you talk about your use of the Eastern concept of ‘mindfulness?
There are a number of ‘instant happiness’ gurus out there, I do not believe in a ‘get rich in a day’ message, but I do believe that if we learn how to listen to our soul, we will be able to live our highest potential.
We live in a rapidly changing world. When I was born in Belgrade in 1968, at the time of no TV or internet, the population on the planet was three billion. Now they say it is seven billion.
The changes I have seen during my lifetime are huge. Emotionally, mentally and physically, we have to adopt different behaviour patterns, not just to survive, but to thrive without abusing other social groups or animals or endangering planet Earth.
The next stage, the stage of cultural life, is beyond the knowledge of more than 90 % of the population.
Having a % of population that neither collects objects nor watches TV, nor reads newspapers, that is still capable of thinking, un-hypnotised, to appreciate art, or dance or sing, iis a part of my research fascination."
This highly demanded Book edition of 2 fiction books: A-Ma Alchemy of Love and Tree of Life: a Journey to the Field of Dreams, launched today!
“A-Ma: Alchemy of Love”, uma narrativa passada em Macau sobre “a busca pela verdade”
"Alchemy of Love”, um livro cuja acção se passa na Macau do século XVII. Agora, em entrevista ao jornal Times of Malta, a autora, Nataša Pantović, explica que o romance “é sobre a busca pela verdade”. A história tem como protagonista Ama, uma sacerdotisa africana.
"Nataša Pantović escolheu como cenário para “A-Ma: Alchemy of Love” a Macau do século XVII e colocou como protagonistas Ama, uma sacerdotisa africana a morar na região, Ruben, um padre jesuíta português e Benedito, um cristão ortodoxo. Ama reunia artistas, pregadores, padres e filósofos de todo o mundo, dentro dos cenários mágicos do seu café. O livro explora o crescimento rápido de Macau, quer nos horizontes das cidades, quer nas mudanças socioeconómicas."

New Book LAUNCH #Novel: Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of Name of God at the National Book Council (Malta) event "Book Festival 2022" at the University of Malta. In March 2022 Artof4Elements has presented 2 #newbooks launched in Malta this year: Spring by Dr #RudolfRagonesi (Gaia Founder), Book of Aphorisms #1: Standing on the Banks; and Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of #God by #NatašaPantović “Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of the Name of God”, is a 2022 historical novel written by Maltese / Serbian author Nataša Pantović. The book is Nataša's 9th book and 3rd novel written under her own name (she has also written a poetry book under the pseudonym Nuit) and was released in March 2022 during Malta's Book Festival. Thx for the Music Norman Cristina and to all the creative souls infused by an artistic spirit involved in this amazing gathering. The title of the book is: “Metaphysics of Sound: in Search of the Name of God”, subtitled “A Brief History of the World beyond the Usual”, aims at, according to the Author "comprehending the history of Balkans and Slavs within Europe from the development of the languages perspective". The novel is divided into two parts, both of which are narrated by Ivana Šeravac when she is retired and living alone, and by the Author. The first part begins with the meeting of Ivana and David, on a train journey to a famous Montenegro’s monastery Ostrog, of whom three feature in the remainder of the story: Author, as the narrator, David Archer, and Ivana, who is doing her life-long research in sound and the development of alphabets. The two discuss the philosophical background of two major Ancient Europe’s thought forms – liberals and conservatives, democratic and monarchy-ruled, Greek-links and Romans, Slavic and Germanic. David has a Phd from the Cambridge University and Ivana stays a mum, determined not to let go of her research passion. At this point Nataša's narration of the second part of the novel – which is twice as long as the first – begins, it is a historical journey through sounds, followed by the "classical antiquity" with the Hellenistic, Eastern European history in the Ancient Mediterranean, from the beginning of recorded Ancient Greek history in 776 BC. This roughly coincides with the Golden period in Ancient Greece in Balkan. Following the development of the languages researching the Ancient Egyptian Rosetta Stone, the Ancient Homeric Ionic Greek, Nataša uses the Slavic Cyrillic script to map the oldest Phoenician Alphabet to the European development of languages. “In search of the Name of God” we follow Nataša’s life-long research into the oldest recorded history of Malta, the 21 symbols of Ancient Serbian Vinča’s pottery, the 1st ever published Sumerian Liturgy for the Moon Goddess SiN by a Sumerian Priestess, Ancient Greek Herodotus and his encounter of Slavs, the Orphic Rituals with its Text of Derveni Papyrus from Macedonia, and the spread of the Dio-Nysus cult in the European Balkan. This accessible and entertaining summary of Nataša Pantović's alternative history ideas is bound to expand minds of researchers of ancient history, providing a kind of un-filtered theory of the Western and Eastern development of thoughts. We explore Vinča Neolithic (Serbian Danube) pottery scripts, sophisticated carved statues signs, 100s of Canaan letters, Phoenicians Arabic, Ionic, Cyrillic, Aramaic, Chinese, Hebrew. “Sinai inscriptions” of 1480 BC offer evidence that 22 Egyptian hieroglyphic symbols were borrowed to form the characters of the future alphabets. The Book of the Dead, “Emerging Forth into the Light”, with magic spells helping the dead King or Queen take the place amongst the gods, reuniting with divine father Ra, or mother aNX. Most sub-texts begin with the word Ro, which can mean "mouth," or "Word" or “Logos”. For the visual lovers, they were individual papyri joined together size 15 cm to 45 cm. So tinny! A detailed scene, from Papyrus of Hunefer 1285 BC, in British Museum, shows the heart weighed on the scale of Maat against feather of truth with: I did Not Kill, etc. later adopted as 10 commandments. Exploring ancient worlds further, Ancient Egypt, Greece, Ancient Europe, India, China, Balkan to understand advanced Neolithic civilizations, the sounds frequency of esoteric words & ancient names of Gods. 5,000 BC the Mediterranean region was the center of world!
Rudolf Ragonesi Launches his new book: Spring: Standing on the Banks Looking On, a Collection of Aphorisms Book #1, and Natasa Pantovic is reading her Poem Magic Spell LIVE at the University Book Festival Open Mic event in March 2022 in Malta. Rudolf Live Reading of Spring: A Collection of Aphorisms Book 1. "Certainly we are not our thoughts, but we come together when we choose to share them. These aphorisms cover the gamut of the human experience, with recurrent themes of love, liberty, the mind and character..." Author "As the river flows inexorably to the sea, sweeping us along, we find ourselves stepping out onto the shore, reflecting on it all. Such moments come as we awaken in the morning, wait at the traffic lights, walk the dog or stir a pot on the boil. Thoughts are the most spontaneous and intimate thing we possess, if indeed we can speak of possession rather than a glimpse of the 11 picture, seen through our eyes, that appears before us day to day. They are what make us who we are, as all that surrounds us pushes, drives, moulds and tests us, forming every fibre of our being." "Certainly we are not our thoughts, but we come together when we choose to share them." "These aphorisms cover the gamut of the human experience, with recurrent themes of love, liberty, the mind and character. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed penning them." The Author Natasa Pantovic uses Slam Poetry to perform a poem from Art of 4 Elements called Magic Spell. Music by Norman Cristina. Video by Sonja Stellini.

Asked by @Sepherd to create The Best #booksreviews On The Ancient #Mediterranean #Classics Beyond The Usual! The Books I Picked & Why...
No. 1 is Language of Amarna - Better known as Amarna Heresy, a philosophical discussion from Ancient Egypt's #Babylon about Monotheism and Trinity written 3,000 years ago.
My No. 2 is The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus by Osman, a British #Egyptologist born in Cairo who says that Moses was born in Egypt and that Tut-Ankh-Amun had a very similar “story” to Jesus.
My personal favourite of Ancient Mediterranean classics, printed more than 5,000 years ago is Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna Enheduanna (who wrote in Sumerian), dating to around 2400 BC. Enheduanna is the earliest known Female Poet. She was the High Priestess of the goddess Inanna and the moon god Nanna (Sin). She lived in the Sumerian city-state of Ur in Syria.
#4 is The Derveni Papyrus: #Cosmology, #Theology found in Macedonia now in Thessaloniki Museum, Greece.
Published in 340 BC it is an Orphic book of mystical initiations. The scroll was carefully unrolled and the fragments joined together, thus forming 26 columns of text. which was used in the mystery cult of #Dionysus by the 'Orphic initiators'. It is a philosophical treatise written as a commentary on an Orphic poem, a Theogony concerning the birth of the gods, compiled in the circle of the #philosopher AnaXagoras.
The scroll contains a philosophical treatise on a lost poem describing the birth of the gods and other beliefs focusing on Orpheus, the mythical musician who visited the underworld to reclaim his dead love. The Orpheus cult tells us of a single creator god, of the trinity, of resurrection, of a virgin's child, back in the Macedonian region of Ancient Greece that was the Ancient Europe during 400 BC... Both Orpheus and Heraclitus compose allegories about the secrets of nature and of God. In the Orphic cosmogony, he was writing only for the "pure in hearing".
On the autumn morning just after the full moon of the Equinox month, in the year 1460 BC, an un-named volcano in Southern Italy that had been silent for decades, suddenly burst into life and exploded. By the end of the following day, the islands of Malta and Crete were buried under ash, rock and mud, carried by an 80 meters high tsunami wave, where they remained lost and forgotten for the next 4,500 years.
At the time of eruption, the temples were long abandoned by its builders, following a harsh climate change that increased storms and rains, removing layers after layers of carefully cultivated and for centuries fertilised land. The evidence of this catastrophic event was found on the skeleton of the last generation of Neolithic Temple Builders, around 2400 BC. In an attempt to keep the land from disappearing, many ancestors’ bones show the evidence of strained wrists.
A rich and bustling community of 2,000 people, at its peak, had built 66 temples during the period of 1,000 years. Now, a new exciting archaeological excavation at Tas-Silġ in Marsaxlokk, sheds further light about Neolithic Temple Builders of Malta.
The Great Wave Learning from Van Gogh & Hokusai about 19th Century Art
The late 1800s was the time of Impressionism as a radical art movement , centered around Parisian painters, the wave that rebelled against classical subject and gave respect to Mother Nature.
Travelling to their thought-form, Vincent van Gogh to the artist friend Emile:
Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Emile Bernard, Saint-Rémy, 1889
“But now look, ... you surely can't seriously imagine a confinement like that, in the middle of the road, with the mother starting to pray instead of suckling her child? Those bloated frogs of priests on their knees as though they're having an epileptic fit are also part of it, God alone knows how and why!
No, I can't call that sound, for if I am at all capable of spiritual ecstasy, then I feel exalted in the face of truth, of what is possible, which means I bow down before the study - one that had enough power in it to make a Millet tremble - of peasants carrying a calf born in the fields back home to the farm.
That, my friend, is what people everywhere, from France to America, have felt. And having performed a feat like that, can you really contemplate reverting to medieval tapestries? Can that really be what you mean to do? No! You can do better than that, and know that you must look for what is possible, logical and true.”
“Now to enlighten you, my dear M. Van Gogh, ... I am searching for and at the same time expressing a general state of mind rather than a unique thought, to have someone else's eye experience an indefinite, infinite impression. To suggest a suffering does not indicate what kind of suffering: purity in general and not what kind of purity. Literature is one (painting also). Consequently, suggested and not explained thought.”
Letter from Paul Gauguin to Theo van Gogh. At this time, Vincent was 36 year old.
The Starry Night Vincent Van Gogh, 1889 & Japanese print Hokusai Great Wave 1833
First seen outside Japan in the 1880s, Van Gogh's brother was one of the first Europeans to collect Japanese prints and has admired Japanese art.
Starry Night (1889), was created while Vincent was a patient at Saint-Paul-de-Mausole Asylum in France
"The artist always comes up against resistance from nature in the beginning, but if he really takes her seriously he will not be put off by that opposition, on the contrary, it is all the more incentive to win her over - at heart, nature and the honest draughtsman are as one.” Vincent Van Gogh to his brother” “The struggle with nature is sometimes a bit like what Shakespeare calls “the taming of the shrew””. Vincent van Gogh Letter to Theo van Gogh, 1881 in Etten, At this time, Vincent was 28 year old.

Happy Equinox 2019!
A rich and bustling community of 2,000 people, at its peak, had built 66 temples during the period of 1,000 years. Now, a new exciting archaeological excavation at Tas-Silġ in Marsaxlokk, sheds further light about Neolithic Temple Builders of Malta. In British times Neolithic were confused with Phoenicians origins, so most of the artefacts did stay in Maltese hands, now exhibited in Archaeological Museum in Valletta and within the Temple Complexes. With the development of meta-physics, meta-psychology, or micro-biology, our scientists and researchers stay amazed with the Culture that used healing with sounds within their rituals, had extra-ordinary artists that sculpted with precision, had architects, clothes makers, and farmers that fertilised their cultivated land. The Island’s first Temples have been unearthed during the British excavation in 1830 - 1840, at the same time with Crete excavation, and since the Islands were during the Second World War a British colony, viewed as a military zone, they have experienced lots of bombarding and damage to all the buildings. Hypogeum, the most amazing 11 meters deep, carved in stone underground temple, was for example used as a Bomb Shelter. It was only in 1970s that Malta gained its independence, and its scientists & archaeologists have started claiming the natural heritage from the investors, roads builders, and various other intruders. Nearly 6,000 years, numbering several thousand people, is far denser than the people of mainland Europe. The islands were visited by neighbouring islands, was a trading port and ritual site at the heart of the Mediterranean. The decisive blow to the Culture occurred around 2350 BC, when the whole region, geologists tell us, suffered a catastrophic climate event.
Ever since its first discovery in 1908 by the Serbian archaeologist Miloje Vasić, Vinča culture, a Neolithic settlement that spanned most of Serbia, parts of Romania, Bulgaria & Macedonia, has been of great interest to the lay public and scientists alike.
In 2005, Police in central Germany found the artifacts that date to the Neolithic period and are believed to belong to the Vinca, in a sports bag belonging to two Serbs. Last year, a 2,000 year old Roman monument weighing half a ton was stolen in 24 hours after the find. Such epigraphic monuments, stone monuments with Latin engraving text) are extremely rare in the world so the value is extremely high.
With 100s of objects discovered, Serbia would ranke among the first in Europe for finds declared if there is not a huge Archeological Black Market that leads these priceless artifacts into foreign private hands. If you're into stats, there’s every chance with every new dig unearth more hugely significant finds. The found and stolen monument on the territory of Serbia is unique in the world because they are highly preserved with Latin (Greek) inscription in 15 lines. Based on the inscription on the monument, an expert from the National Museum found that the monument belonged to a chivalrous man. He commanded various military departments and took part in the war with the Dacians and Parthians. The special value of this monument for Serbia and Belgrade was in the fact that it was found in its original place: the ancient Singidunum.
Now Information about the monument is included in the Interpol database of stolen archaeological items so that thieves can never sell it to a museum but still it goes to someelse’s hands.
Research and analysis of the artifacts, remains of houses, show a civilization that was so advance to have insulation against the elements, multi-room layouts, even public communal spaces. Divided by streets, enclosed by ditches discovered all over Serbia in numberous archeologiical sites.

Yin and Yang Consciousness States of Universe are NOT positive nor negative. There are only negative and positive applications of Yin and Yang states of consciousness within Yin and Yang charged environment.
Each one of us, as a soul incarnated to experience different states of Consciousness Manifestations, tries to understand the positive applications of Yin (Intuitive) combined with Yang (Reason) states of Consciousness.
Applied together within what I call Alchemy of Love or Alchemy of Soul or Alchemy of Humanity these Forces direct us towards the implementation of Clear Ratio Guided by Intuitive Wisdom. This is the highest implementation of Intuitive (by definition Yin) Truth (by definition Yang) within Humanity's learning implemented so far.
“I” as an individual know nothing and “we” as “humanity” or “Universe” as an entity know IT ALL. The full application of Yin and Yang Positive Forces will take us to a number of enlightenment-s within many fields of Life.
