Crystal Cave. Crystal Clear. The Cave filled in.

Our World Legends say Crystal Power is… no Myth. Our Wrist-watches rely on this LIL’ Power-pack device of Nature. Tis the same for Inner Earth Cave systems… no Myth therein as well. Tunneling Technology and Mining have oft revealed wondrous and natural creations within Our Earth. Herein also. The Legends of Yore, Science and Tech combine… to create… Crystal Clear. One such Cavern system is about to be covered up… and filled in. See it before Time and the Excavators… stop… soonish… maybe.

Big Ben… The Clock Tower… Westminster… London,.. England.

 

Pulsing Power through Quartz Crystal… powers some of Our many Time-pieces.

Hence the nomen… Quartz Watch.

 

Though also… not the One named as Big Ben.

Besides being lil’ large for most wrists.

 

Our World Legends of this Natural Gem and Mineral Wonder are now revealing a;..

Crystal Cave.

Crystal Clear.

The Cave filled in…

…is another Saga being played out.

Inside Our Earth.

 

Unlike Big Ben… which is outside.

 

Also btw… Which at the moment… and for a while…

will only play the sounds of silence.

 

Though… not like the version above indeed,..

in deed and in fact… too.

 

Big Ben… Telling Time on St. Stephen’s Tower since MAY 31 of 1859… Survived the Bombing of WW2… is kept accurate by a pile of coins on the Pendulum ‘Cept now… tis… off-line. Also tells when Parliament is… online sitting per se by the light above… being on as well.

 

Big Ben is undergoing renovations and repairs.

Maintenance and more it seems.

Part of a four year process of work involved therein.

 

The silent treatment… therein it seems.

 

Cutting Crystal Clear.

 

In the hands of Marcel Vogel a Quartz Gem would reveal it’s inner nature… and workings.

 

Whilst at the employ of such as IBM and elsewhere.

At the… cutting edge of this Science indeed,..

in deed and in fact… as well.

 

The Vogel Cut named in his Honor and Memory brings Crystal Power to the fore.

By adding extra angular facets to the natural therein already.

 

A Quartz Type… Shiro gifted from Nature. 6 Sides or Facets the norm therein. photocredit/thanks:1968tanja

 

VOGEL CUT CRYSTAL…Many Facets therein. Power-up. photocredit/thanks:pinterest

Many Inventions and Patents held by this Research Scientist.

Within such as Magnetic Recording Media, Optical Electronics, Rare Earth Phosphor Luminescents, Black Light and Liquid Crystals.

Computer Hard Disc Drives for example,.. still take advantage of his Magnetic Coating.

Our World Legends still tell the Tale of his youth.

 

Of how his interest in these fields was… sparked…

by a Fire-fly.

The Light it emits.

 

Luminescence.

 

By age 12… Marcel had chemically created a matching compound.

3-amino-phthalaz-1-4 dione,.. with potassium ferro-cyanide and hydrogen peroxide.

Just add Water.

Luminescence.

 

His later work and studies with liquid crystals delineated the ability or capacity of Natural Quartz Crystal to store, amplify and then transmit power or information. Raw Crystals vary with size, locale and so forth of this field strength. The power or information able to be passed on is also dependent on such.

Science Legends detail how Quartz is essentially Hot as Silicon Dioxide Vapor that cools and solidifies.

Layer on/upon Layer.

A generalised Pictorial above.

 

Similar to the growth of a Pearl… The Crystal grows.

 

 

 

Crystalline Caverns Within.

The History and Herstory of Mining goes long with Our World Legends.

Multiple necessities within Societal Life.

Outback Living also.

 

Inner Earth… Naica,.. Mexico.

Near the Township of Delicias.

 

The Year 2000.

Miners found more than their Target digging this Hole.

The Largest Crystals… ever seen.

 

Taken… long to grow indeed,.. in deed and in fact also.

The photos therein Slide-Show above are not… manipulated.

The Crystals are that GIANT sized.

Inside Our Earth.

 

Try putting them on your mantle… or key chain.!.

 

 

Some 300 mtrs. below Our Earth’s surface Tons of Crystals grow.

In extreme conditions of Temp. and Humidity.

 

The Industrias Peñoles Mine above and around collects mainly Silver, Lead and Zinc.

Lying on a Natural Fault-Line with ready access to magma and water.

Mineral rich and saturated water… that is.

 

Ideal for Crystal… growth…

even these GIANT sized specimens.

 

Mining Operations had drained enough of the surrounding water to allow the site to be revealed.

Another of Our World Legends… tis known.

GIANT Gems. Indeed.

Power of the Press…

Clear as.

 

In addition to the applications of Vogel and Tech;..

Crystal Power can be… A Pressing Power phenomenon.

Power of the Press.

Pressure that is.

 

Typically termed Piezo Power or Piezo Pressure.

 

Piezo Electricity explained. photocredit/thanks:docplayerru

 

(Video Link)

 

Power Transfer is induced by basically ” bending/squeezing ”  the Crystal.

This mechanical action allows a charge to freely flow.

Slightly distorting the Crystal upsets it’s balance per se and by allowing Power to play across it…

hopefully return thus to normality.

Power of the Press.

 

By altering the vibrations of the distortion squeeze:..

the Power can be… altered to suit.

Even to tell time… to keep on ticking that is.

 

Quartz… Powered-Up.

Wrist-watch sized… perhaps.?.

 

Even Larger may You ask well.?.

A Mountain Full of…

Piezo… Capped off.!?

Tis… Legendary and a reality of Yore.?.

 

Perhaps indeed.

 

In Times and Places of Yore… The Great Pyramid was capped… Bright White so Our World Legends do say. photocredit/thanks:thepinsta

 

Pyramid Power has long been… overlooked.

From the PoV of i, Shiro’s understanding…

 

Piezo Pressure is… Pressing Power.

Do not the Tons and Tons of Pyramid Stones… Press.?.

Do not the Tons and Tons of Pyramid Stones… contain Quartzite.?.

Do not the Legends say the Pyramid… lit up… on the…

top up.?. Cap that is.

 

Which was a GEM or CRYSTAL.?.

 

(Music Link)

 

Pyramid Power then seems to be… Piezo Electricity.

Pressed in by Gravity itself.

A Mountain sized… Crystal IN Stone.

 

A Pyramid… of Naturally Pressed Power.

 

On the Inside… photocredit/thanks:quotesgram

Pumping up…

the Power Pyramid.

So these Legends say.

To me… anyways… also.

 

A PUMP like device… neatly and finely suits it’s internals…

as well.

Fire within… PYR(e)AMID(st).

 

Power-Up indeed,.. in deed and in fact too.

Keep that OL’ and Eternal Flame…

turning and burning. Power-UP.

 

Pyramid Power… Pump it Up Pharaoh Please.

 

Reflecting Our World Legends… What the Pyramid Inners… can do. gifcredit/thanks:nexusilluminatiblogspot

 

Dig a Hole… Fill a Hole…

Clear.?.

Fill it up… Crystal Clear…

…Water that is indeed.

 

These Giant Gem Structures within Our Earth may well support the Surface Crust above. Though not as Hard as the Diamond Planet found within our Science Legends;.. they may well too…

litter the Inner Earth wherever such Fault-lines and Forces meet.

Crystalline nevertheless.

 

Upon such, may well Our Continents… drift.

 

(Video Link)

 

Mining oft requires the Site refilling process.

The Crystal Caverns of Naica…

may not be exempted from this process and proceedings.

 

However,..

the Mining Co. need no shovels therein.

Nor Excavators and Dump Trucks.

 

When Mining Ops cease… the Miners Pumps

do too. Powered… down and off.

 

In time after that… refill will be simply a matter of…

fulfilling itself.

Water will naturally flow back in.

 

Covering up… Giant Natural Gem Wonders…

thus and… within. For the Years to come.

 

 

Tbh… there appears no official indication of when Mining is expected to end.

For now… the Pumps run.

Crystals Clear and… dry as well.

 

Still… a must see… soon.

 

The Mining and Finance Sectors can be fickle indeed.

Profit over People and All that.

 

Their love of Crashes too,..

mentioned in several of Our World Legends.

 

Time… on and in your Hands. Herein. Our World Legends. Many Hands.

A Final Cut Dig.

 

For some of us at least.

Those who amongst us still wear proudly on their sleeve…

well… wrist actually.

The Quartz Powered Timepiece.

The Watch.

 

Without… Crystal Power.

Time in that World… stops.

 

So… Our World Legends do say.

 

 

Till next…

 

Ninja. Kunoichi. The 27 Ways.

Kunoichi… Modern Cosplay Representation.

 

Defining Ninpo and All the Concepts within is problematical.

Even the Fundamentals.

The Essence is Survival.

This is taught in a fluid Combat manner…

to suit any and all situations.

Defining that above… problematical.

 

Herein i, Shiro’s attempt at classifying that which the Japanese Masters and Our World Legends state and say on the Historical Practices of the Arts of Self-Defence… Shinobi Style;

A recent-ish Ninpo Soke version is here.

 

Though details may differ the overall Concept and Approach involves realistically knowing oneself and capabilities. This is then also applied to such as Universal, World, Natural or Local Knowledge.

Balance, Harmony and Flow are oft emphasised.

Basic Rights, Empathy and Respect is highlighted to Others and Society as a whole. Love for Self, Kin and Human-Kind.

 

Survival and Self-Defence linked naturally.

Our World Legends.

Ninja and Kunoichi.

 

Ninpo Ikkan All.

 

Romeo and Juliet. Eternal Flame. Relit.

Tis said that Love makes the World go around… and makes one… rather dizzy… too. From times of Yore… and the times of the Gods… Love… is in the air. Other places… also. Join Shiro as he seeks and searches Our World Legends… looking for Love… in all the right… and wrong Places and Ways. Love can bring Light into our Lives or throw us deep… into the Dark.

 

(Music Link)

 

The Legends are full of it.

Of Love,.. that is.

 

In some form.

 

From the earliest Times… we have put emotions into words.

Feelings and actions inspired by ideals… too.

We love to… love.

 

Reflected so well too… in the Tales we tell…

…and oft retell.

Of Dreams, Hopes and Tragedy therein.

Our World Legends.

 

Herein… also.

 

Like the burning blossom within Shakespeare’s fiery epic of;..

Romeo and Juliet.

Eternal Flame.

Relit…

… just before burning out it seems.?.

 

SHINOBI HEART… Our World Legends INDEED. gifcredit/thanks:gifco

Or not.?.

Perhaps… just smoldering…

…awaiting another History and Herstory.

Another retelling.

 

Enabling then,..

…this Eternal Flame… be relit.

 

So these Legends do seem to say.

 

Fire… Starters…

…to Light that Fire.

 

The Legends of the Ancient Gods are… eye-opening.

They act… all together… too Human.

 

Their Traits… are Ours.

Excepting the odd Miracle… they grow, learn and age.

With Family, Friends, Lovers and Enemies… too.

 

As… we All do.

 

Ancient and Olden Divine Being Depictions… of Goddesses and Gods. photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

 

Love in the Legends contains much drama.

Shakespearean and otherwise.

 

Sumerian… for example.

The Gods are rampant within their Writings.

Doing and achieving… great things it seems indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… too.

 

The Civilisation of Sumer is one of our eldest.

Whose records… we can still sorta read.

 

Lil Clay Brick Records btw.

As herein Slide-show… below.

Love Letters… of Paper…

…and Clay… too.

Inanna and Dumuzi of Sumer… had… it.

Love,.. Dreams, Happiness… and each other… also.

 

For a short time… anyways.

 

Dumuzi it seems at some point… had…

..had enough.

Of… something.

 

Journeyed away… to the… Dark side.

The UnderWorld… actually.

 

This… for some reason… irked Innanna…inanely indeed.

Intensely also.

 

Journeying… to Hell and back… literally.

The UnderWorld… anyways.

A Land to which Dumuzi had recently journeyed to…

…and… also;..

…Where… her Sister… lived.

 

Ereshkigal… her name.

 

Also known as ISHTAR/ASTARTE/APHRODITE/VENUS… and so on. Herein. Our World Legends. photocredit/thanks:connectionwls

 

Thus above sets the Scenes for one of the first Love Epics, Odes and Poems.

And so on, does… Love,.. tumble, fumble and fall;..

…through the Legends.

 

Via the Goddesses and Gods in the main.

 

Of many Cultures and Ways therein… too.

 

This indeed leads Love and it’s inherent forms to include such as the Noble Divinity aspect into it’s equation vis the Sacred Marriage Ceremonies and Rituals therein various Traditions.

Akin to the Nature Worshipping whereby both Sacrifice and Regeneration are Major Themes incorporated. To reflect their Understanding and Relation of the Way things are.

 

Over Herstory and History… in different times and places these Themes shift only in Local color per se.

Creation and Growth.

Dreams.

Hope and Tragedy.

 

Inviting or Forbidden.

Bawdy,.. even Lustful when needed…

 

…Tender as required… also.

 

Lending a Hand.?. How about some Legendary… Duct Tape.?. Herein. Origins,.. Intel… Pics and More.

 

Spending a Night…

…with a Knight.

 

Via such as the Olden Troubadours of Courtly and Knightly Love.

Where the concepts of Honor, Justice, Representation, Adoration…

…all combine.

 

The Damsel fair,.. troubled in some ways and means.

Men… just there to aid.

 

Love… from a distance.

A background detail to the Main Issue therein.

Somewhat distant and unnecessary.

 

Almost… aloof.

 

The Balcony… a pic. A Top set of Legendary Riffs… to set the scene… in some manner. Herein.

 

(…Aloof.?. Tis not surprising sayeth Shiro here… Let’s be… naked with the Truth here;..

…Aloof is Polite… Whilst maybe having Noble thoughts in Mind… These guys… didn’t wash much… even less than the Wild Cowboys of the West… if… at all… and…

sat on smelly Horses…

ALL day… night too… sometimes… slept.?. in dark danky Castles… got around in tin can steamy and clanky Armor Suits with Longjohns as company… look… ???… do not the Legends say:

…Sir Lancelot… who… used his Lance… a LOT… lived and camped most oft near rivers, bridges and on the shores of that Lady in the Lake… squeaky clean Lance methinks.!.

A Legendary Hint perhaps therein there… too.

For those with an interest: For long lasting Modern Male smelly goodness…try a few splashes of that other Hero…Aramis… of the Musketeers and Perfumed… Approach… 😉

William Shakespeare… in Statuary.

 

A Rose…

…by any Name… at all.

 

Shakespeare combined the Real of the situation with additional emotional content as context.

In Ways that resonated.

 

The Love he enwrapped in the Romeo and Juliet Tale… so familiar in some way…

…to many.

 

A form of Love… forbidden… by outside Forces…

while the Lovers beset and besot,..

…by their own Inner… ones… also.

Fire and Ice.

 

This Theme and Approach oft replayed, recycled, reloaded.

Romeo and Juliet just one approach.

 

The Lovers… barely afloat on a sea of emotions.

Waves of emotion.

Raw.

Where each action can trigger… an avalanche.

Or… tidal wave.

 

Fire AND Ice.

Eternal Flame. Relit.

This is evidenced by taking a particular view.

 

The House of Shakespeare;.. Stratford on Avon,.. Warwickshire, England.

 

This View…

…of the Lonely Hearts that is.

 

Of such as the Lives and Tales thereof of even recent generations.

 

Of events of 31st of August, 1997.

Or of the events of August 8th, 1977 perhaps… as well.

 

Of the humility, style and graces of such personages,..

…as Lady Diana Spencer or…

…Princess Misha’al bint Fahd al Saud.

 

Themes and actions that echo throughout Our Time.

Of misunderstanding and… misuse of Protective Power.

 

Of Care-takers… becoming Executioners.

 

Of Rituals that belong nowhere in Time… not Now.

Nor then.

Of a Love… that then… tore apart their World.

 

In the Modern… as well.

The recent Renaissance, Commoner, Princess or otherwise.

 

Relit.

Still burning.

 

(Music Link)

 

O… Wherefore… art Thou.?.

One hopes and wonders… too.

That… cool heads prevail and;..

 

…no such tragedy alights still or ensues from the current journey and recent seeming disappearance of Princess Sheikha Latifa in Dubai.

Not another variation of our eternal theme.?.

 

Relit.?.

A Legend in the making thereof.?.

More Hope… less Tragedy.

 

 

Enjoy, Take Care… and Love…

…Your very Own Journey.

 

In this World and the UnderWorld… also.

 

For… on and in Your Journey…

Love may alight and find You One,..

 

…therein… too.

 

Burning with raw emotion and power.

A… fire within.

Fired Up.

 

IN… Love.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup. Modern Recipe… for a Titanic Disaster.?.

Whilst not strictly Islands,.. YET. Our Garbage and Refuse, mainly PLASTICS… piles up indeed. The nature and direction of Oceanic Currents piles Plastics into… a Titanic pile of water-logged Plastic Soup. Maritime Feeders partake this concoction of our… crappy stuff. Our Sciences scream the Disaster and folly of this… as our Bodies are not… Plastic that is. Nor theirs. Plankton and Plastic… not a good mix indeed it seems. Our World Legends. Bonus Slide-Show and Disaster Music… too. Herein.

 

The Eye of a Storm is still… and somewhat calm…

too.

So these Legends… say.

Herein.

Where and when Oceans meet… tis similar it seems.

Whilst without and all around massive Natural Forces play out,..

Somewhat energetically… and seemingly chaotically…

…a Soup is made.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup.

Modern Recipe…

…for a Titanic Disaster.?.

PLASTICS… in the main therein.

 

Garbage.

Ours…

 

(…And… NOT THE BAND… either and btw…

which is not… GARBAGE… but is,..

…just called that… that is.)

 

 

GARBAGE… NOT THE BAND.

 

SOUP’s up… and down…

…all around…too.

Sailing Craft and even Maritime Expeditions and Explorations oft followed the Winds.

Hence the term… Trade Winds for example.

 

Ocean Currents are of a similar Nature.

5 Main Meeting Points.

Sub-Tropical.

5 Gyres.

 

5 Large Serves… of Plastic Soup.

Several more… on the make… too.

Oceans and Waterways have long been used as a dump.

 

Much of our Litter will degrade away… eventually.

Through the various actions of the Sun, Climate, Waters, Time and etc.

Tis also helped along by various species which may be specialised eaters.

 

 

Plastic’s degradation is basically Plastic which becomes smaller pieced.

Nor is it an vital element or natural molecule substance… either.

 

No known Life-form… has however eaten Plastic per se…

…till now in times Modern.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

The Living Organism… We Call… Phytoplankton. A Pic… magnified much.

 

(Music Link)

 

Plastic… ALL over the World.

 

The Plastics itself too… are just a part of the issue.

ALL Plastics contain Chemicals of some nature.

Not necessarily natural per se.

 

These Chemicals are leached out over actions and time.

Into the Food Chain.

 

Bottom up…

…to us… and beyond indeed.

 

(Video Link)

 

Plastics and Chemicals cause changes even to such simpler Life-forms as Plankton.

Which many Fish… consume.

 

Behavioural and reproductive changes… also.

Biological Barrier Boundaries… are no longer.

 

Many Chemical Reaction Studies and Reports from a variety of the Sciences include and show:..

…an increased risk for Heart/Cardiovascular disease, Cancers including Breast and Prostate, Reproductive dysfunction effects, Metabolic dysfunction, Diabetes, Miscarriages, Neurological and Behavioral disorders… more… too.

 

The growing health risks of plastic are significantly amplified in…

… our growing children,..

…whose immune and organ systems are still in development…

 

…still… growing.

 

Chemical Concoctions… Consumed.

 

The Processing and Manufacture of Plastic;..

…as well as its eventual throw-away and subsequent destruction by such as incineration or dumping,..

…pollutes our Air, Land and Waters.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

Exposes ALL associated Life-forms to Toxic Chemicals,..

…including Carcinogens to varying degrees.

 

The evidence of Health Risks associated with Plastics is…

…growing indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

 

Many of Science now get into… the Deep Blue.

The recognition of damage… too readily skimming on the surface.

 

People over Profit… much more profitable… to some.

 

Such recognition… inspires change.

Perhaps… a chance to grow.

 

We can Dream… and still do.

PLANKTON’s…

…Partaking of Plastic Soup.

Crap.

 

A Global Survey which linked Data from around the world Estimates:

275 Million Tons of Plastic Waste.

 

5-13 Million Tons into our Oceans.

 

Life relies on the Food Chain.

Science has delineated 9 such Global Systems of Life Support.

We are not alone… nor are we… convenient.

 

Our actions… matter… in the end.

 

We eat and drink… Life-forms.

Other Species do similar.

Whilst contemplating research into Blindness and the applicable Martial Arts Training Methods (…=click=…) that NINPO Students can utilise,..

…the idea of Life in Darkness was brought to… light.

Our Deep Blue Seas and Oceans atypical (click).

 

Though comprising some 60+% of our Earth’s Living Spaces the Sunlight cannot illuminate such depths.

Light dims dramatically after some 200 mtrs and is gone by 600.

Conditions of Pressure, Temperature and Sustenance vary greatly there (click).

 

Hazards to Life indeed it seems.

The Slide-shows….

THE DEEP BLUE… ZONED OUT.

 

 

The vast majority of the Marine Life is in the upper zone… the photic…

…where the Light is… too.

Light and accompanying food sources control the distribution of said Life.

 

The Marine Creatures that live and foray in the deepest reaches have and present remarkable features (click).

Illuminescence, reduced Mass and peculiar body structures, slow growth and metabolism, long feelers, teeth, jaw and so on (click).

Long Lived… too it seems.

 

Very large sized Predators are practically non-existent.

The Food-chain here will not support such.

 

Reproduction an issue… too.

Suitable mates are oft… unseen in such waters.

Several deep-sea fish,.. such as the Tripod or Lizard develop both sexed Organs for self impregnation/fertilisation… if so required.

 

Life… goes on… deep in this deep indeed.

A rich and diverse series of Life-forms has become the norm.

Even in the watery deep blue.

For many years we knew not.

 

The advent of Technology to penetrate such darkness has been a boon for discovery.

 

Millions of Life-forms known of… and still counting…

Mother Nature indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

Herein also.

 

The Deep Blue.
