We men have long used a 1-10 scale to rank women on their hotness / desirability. Women (and men) have lacked a comparable scale for men, because what women find attractive in men is a bit more complicated. Well, I figured it out for you, and here it is:
The Score for Men
Middle-Class Money or above
Social Proof / Fame
Personal Behavior / Game
Each is worth one point out of ten. So what’s your score?
There has been a stable and persistent cycle of 200 years warming and 200 years cooling for at least the past 1,800 years. Unusual events like comet dust or a major volcanic eruption are not needed to explain the wave-like behavior of civilization over time. (Such things happen, but are incidental and/or have the same - cosmic - cause.)
Official History has been at pains - and gone through some absurd contortions - to obscure this.
[Note: Events of 375 - 500 actually took place from 375 - 400, and Dark Ages was 400 not 500 years. In other words, it's been closer to 1,800 years than 2,016 years since year one of the Current Era (CE/"AD").]
1 - 200: Warming
The Roman Empire is doing well, expanding and stable.
200 - 400: Cooling
Food production declines, Roman Empire spread too thin, fractures into East & West. By 375, growing season gets too short in Northern part of temperate zone to sustain tribes, Volkerwanderung/"wandering of peoples" (deliberately misleading), hundreds of thousands of (hungry) people all descending on Roman Empire en masse from N. Europe & N. Central Asia (Huns).
By 400, W. Roman Empire ceases to exist qua Roman Empire.
400 - 600: Warming (corresponds to 500 - 700 of Official History)
First half of "Dark Ages." Warming period could have enabled increased food production leading to increase in population in Europe (as happened later), but recent collapse of civilization meant they could not take advantage of it.
The Muslims took advantage of it by expanding rapidly throughout the Middle East, across N. Africa, and up into Spain.
600 - 800: Cooling (corresponds to 700 - early 900's of Official history)
In the first half of this cooling period, Charles Martel stopped the Islamic expansion into France, and his grandson Charlemagne followed on from this by conquering France, Germany, and N. Italy. As the cooling continued, however, Charlemagne's progeny were not able to hold his empire together.
By the end of the first century of this cooling period, the Vikings had begun their raiding, driven south by lack of food. The progressing cold in their homelands pushed them farther and farther South and East (to Constantinople) throughout the 2nd century of the period; many Vikings switched from raiding to settling down, esp. in the British Isles & N. France.
800 - 1000: Warming (corresponds to mid 900's - 1200 of Official History)
The vaunted Medieval Warm Period (MWP). Charlemagne's conquering had Christianized most of W. Europe, restoring some stability relative to the immediate post-collapse era. Thus, they were able to make use of the warming this time, greatly increasing food supply & more than doubling the population.
By the end of this warming period, the Vikings had settled Greenland (h/t Razib Khan for this link, via @hbdchick), and reached N. America.
1000 - 1200: Cooling (corresponds to 1200 - 1400 of Official History)
For nearly the first half of this cooling period, Europeans (esp. Western) rode the momentum of the Medieval Warm Period. By the "1290's" (of the Official Chronology), that had run out, and the situation went bad fast.
The 2nd half of this cooling period ("the 1300's"/actually 1100's) is described by modern historians as "disastrous", "horrific", and a time of "crisis" & "catastrophe". I suspect some significant minority of the deaths attributed to the Black Death were directly and/or indirectly from the drastic drop in food supply, itself directly caused by the cooling, which was quite severe by 3/4's the way through this 200 year period.
It was also the time when the "Hundred Years War" started; the Official History will only admit to social and economic causes, usually downplaying or ignoring the cold weather.
1200 - 1400: Warming (corresponds to 1400 - 1600 of Official History)
The first half of this warming period saw the Renaissance, starting in Italy.
1400 - 1600: Cooling (corresponds to 1600 - 1800 of Official History)
Again, like with the first century of cooling after the MWP, the European peoples were enjoying the momentum from the previous warming period as the planet began cooling. And again, throughout the 2nd half of the cooling, as cold weather decreased food production, social & economic pressures continued to build up on the governments of the day. This led to the American and French revolutions. (Think of the famous painting of George Washington standing in the boat, with boulder-sized chunks of ice floating in the river.)
The use of the term "Little Ice Age" is (again, deliberately) misleading, as it implies an unusual - or at least very rare - occurrence. In fact, as you've just seen, it is quite usual. There is this 200 year cooling period every 400 years - if not always as severe as the most recent one.
1600 - 1800: Warming (corresponds to 1800 - 2000 of official History)
The warming of the first half of this 200 year period gave us the Industrial Revolution, with the 2nd half corresponding to what we've all been taught to call "the 20th century."
The Global Warming hysteria/hoax has been a psychological warfare operation by the "Elites" to mis-direct our attention from exactly what this article is about.
1800 - 2000: Cooling (corresponds to 2000 - 2200 of Official Timeline)
Have you ever noticed that almost all the paintings, drawings, carvings, etc. - every kind of visual representation - from the Dark Ages until about 300 years ago depicting historical events is allegedly anywhere from decades to centuries after the fact?
Go ahead, look!
BC / BCE
If this cycle of 200 years of warming/200 years of cooling has been stable for 2000 years, then the transition of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire would have been final 1/4th of a 200 year cooling period.
If the cycle has been stable for over 3000 years, the collapse of the Bronze Age civilization would have been right at the end of a 200 year cooling period. As the Arctic circle descended upon N. Europe, that would have pushed people living there down into S. Europe, which would have in turn pushed (at least some of) the people living in S. Europe at the time into the Mediterranean - to become the Sea Peoples.
Whoever has The Object is the most successful culture on the planet while they have It - but It can be taken by force.
Obviously the Egyptians had It "first" (I don't know who made It or where It came from. The Ancient Egyptians apparently didn't know how to make one; witness them tearing out across the desert, desperate to get It back. And thereafter, their culture/civilization declined. But I'm getting ahead of myself.)
The culture of Ancient Egypt lasted for thousands of years, with accomplishments in art & architecture that still affect the world to this day.
The whole reason he went back was to get The Object. He was willing to risk his own life, and that of his children (or a fate worse than death). He had the highest level of insider knowledge, but he had to hide his identity. He wore a veil, and had someone else speak for him, because someone in the Egyptian royal court would have recognized his face and/or voice. (I'm here treating the OT account as "mythicized history", rather than completely made up as some have alleged.)
"Let my people go!" was a retcon. The rulers of our world have been committed to keeping this knowledge from the masses.
The Old Testament of the Christian bible clearly describes the dangers of this Object, and the several people who were killed simply by not following the instructions on the proper handling of It. [The OT reference to The Object as an "Ark" & - physically - a box is not necessarily Its only form/manifestation; the Templars (see below) were said to have a "head" that they used to communicate with.. something.]
Apparently, not everyone can make as good use of possession of The Object; there is no evidence of great artistic, scientific, or philosophical accomplishment by the Jews or Hebrews during the centuries they had It. (One could argue that their religion - i.e., their unique synthesis of Egyptian & Middle Eastern religions of the time - has had outsized influence on world history, but that's complicated by social control agendas of more recent authorities.)
Although Athens was the place where the Greeks made their advances in everything but warfare, it was the military strength of Sparta that enabled the Athenians to explore concepts freely.
As the Babylonians sacked Jerusalem in 597 BC, and as there is no evidence to indicate the Babylonians or Persians ever had It, I deduce that It made Its way over to Greece before then. Sparta rapidly militarized sometime between 700 & 600 BC, so that fits. (How exactly the Jews or Hebrews lost It to the Greeks I haven't discovered yet.)
Sparta maintained its political independence until all of Greece was subsumed into the Roman sphere of influence, after which The Object was in Rome.
The City had long since become deeply and thoroughly corrupt by the time Constantine became emperor of the whole Roman Empire in 306*. He knew The Object needed a safer, more stable place to rest; Byzantium could be rebuilt into something much more defensible. He renamed it after himself - Constantinople - and that's where It remained .. until the 4th crusade.
*of the official chronology. The rewriting of history, pertaining to when things happened, is a whole-nother article.
The Fourth Crusade
The Templars were digging in the temple in Jerusalem to find certain documents about The Object; maybe they theorized It existed but weren't sure, or just needed to learn how to control It. Once they found this information, they returned to France to drum up the money & papal support (they needed a good excuse to sell to the masses why a Christian army was waging a crusade against a Christian city) necessary to forcibly take It from the Eastern Roman Empire.
Either the king of France & the Pope let the Templars keep It, or didn't know they had It; either way, a later king of France decided to take It from them. Again, a story had to be told, to explain to the masses why a Christian order of knights was being attacked by the king. The king of France accused them of financial misdeeds, and the Pope (recently elected, from France, stayed there instead of moving to Rome as usual, Templars suddenly re-branded as "bad, all bad" & destroyed soon after - hmmm) piled on with allegations of heresy.
The reports of Templars being tortured "into confessing" was probably the king trying to find out where It was and/or how to use It.
The High Middle Ages and Renaissance
The history of wars raging throughout Europe from the time of the betrayal of the Templars up through the 20th century is the history of people trying to muster the military might to take The Object from whoever had It at a given time.
The Sun King
Louis XIV, king of France, had It for his reign; however, he expanded his country's reach too fast, which, combined with his own corruption, left France unable to keep it.
The Industrial Revolution
The UK got It from France at the end of the Seven Years War (aka "the French & Indian War"), and kept it until World War 2.
Apparently, England gave It peacefully to the United States during or, most likely, immediately after the second world war. Perhaps they were afraid that communist China or the USSR might be able to take It from them.
This is why the US Government has been obsessed with having a military so big and powerful that the whole rest of the world combined could not conquer them.
Unfortunately, having this Thing (whatever It is/does), the USA has been able to remain very successful even as it took on more & more societal dysfunction over the past several decades. This appears to have now finally reached a breaking point.
So long as It exists on this planet and is operational, there will be war(s). The best thing to do would be to "kill" It, so that no one would have It; however, everyone who has taken It by force has apparently thought It was well-nigh indestructible.
For those who are skeptical (but not terminally so), take a look at an historical atlas.
The concept of "a cure for cancer" is popular, betraying that most people have no idea what cancer is. The cells replicate at a certain rate, according to certain environmental cues, and commit suicide ("apoptosis") when appropriate.
"Cancer" is when this system goes awry, and the cells in a tissue replicate faster than is healthy, and/or fail to die when they should.
Why does this happen? WE ALREADY KNOW WHY. We don't need billions more dollars to feed the Medical Sector.
Pollution and malnutrition are the two main causes of "cancer".
We can prevent and cure most cases of cancer with what we know right now, without any products or services of the Medical Biz (tradename: "healthcare").
