Im not sure if i will be able to comprehend the explanation, but ide like to give it a try please TC, Are you able to explain why it seems the years now go sooo fast, its seems one minute its NYE, before you know it, its Easter, then Winter Solstice , then The Melbourne Cup, then BOOM, its NYE again. It seem like a yeargoes in what used to feellike 6 months in The 70s ?
does JC, ever feel ripped off that its his birthday, yet everyone else gets ALL the presents ! 😂😂😂
Jay Cee leaped in to say "The gift given to me is the observance of good will and good tidings done in my name. My love to one and all, in return for it given to me in such immense amounts."
"....why it seems the years now go sooo fast..."
Says The Committee: Because the perception of time is changing. It is accelerating, from the human point-of-view. This occurs easily, because there is no time."
@Steve... December wasn't actually the birth of the persona called Jesus. Here is a video of the energy speaking through Tina Louise Spalding. It you go to 12.00 minutes in, the energy is speaking about Christmas....
Best holiday wishes to you all my friends and I send you all love and light. I give humble thanks to you for enriching my life with your comments and insights. May I leave you with this thought from Roald Dahl -
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
Thank you, Alex and I return my good wishes to you and yours also and for the long life of your new apple trees. My favorite fruit!
It is a personal honor to know what little I've done here is stimulating.
While I don't have any questions to pose at the moment, I do have answers to the two questions posed to the readers by Patrick above.
Answer 1: The unidentified language seems to share a boundary with the speakers of Castillan Espanol (at least according to google translate, I don't speak that language in this lifetime).
Answer 2: (I did figure this one out, but it took a bit of cipherin' on my part).
On a clock face, you have 60 minutes, but it takes different amounts of time for the second, minute and hour hands to make a lap around the clock. (this is ultimately related to how we have chosen to slice the way we've measured time on a standard clock or watch).
Similarly, since we measure centuries and decades in lots of "10" (Think Metric America), but the numerology cycle goes in cycles of "9", we'd need a mechanism like "Leap Day" to periodically insert in Numerology to stay static (but then we'd be staying static, which doesn't seem to be the point).
Instead, every Century we advance by 1 (one unit) ...
1900 = 10 or 1
2000 = 20 or 2
3000 = 30 or 3
Because of measuring in a cycle of 9 vs 10, every year in a century, will slide back a unit (i.e. ..
1910 = 11
2009 = 11
3008 = 11
4007 = 11
As far as some key events in 1910 and how they may relate to Barack Obama's inauguration, Jack Johnson (not the singer), but an African American Boxer beat a white dude in a heavyweight boxing match. That event set off race riots across the US. Obama victory didn't set off race riots, but sure did piss a lot of people off.
Nigel Tufnel (of Spinal Tap fame) was immortalized for saying, "This one goes to 11", but that was back in 1984, when Spinal Tap was released, which makes Nigel an idiot, because that year went to 22.
Quick Correction (apparently, Nigel Tufnel isn't the only idiot around here).
The example I used above, mixed Centuries with Millennia.
While the math was correct on both, the progression i was looking to lay out was every 100 years (or 99 to be exact), not every 1000 years or ...
1910 = 11
2009 = 11
2108 = 11
2207 = 11
I didn't know much about Numerology before the references in this site.
At least I got Feliz Navidad right and didn't say Feliz Cumpleanos.
There's still time for that.
The language is Portuguese, which I learned in Brazil many years ago. It too was spread as far & wide. Taiwan used to be called Formosa, which means "beautiful" in Portuguese. The island of Macau was first spelled Macão by its Portuguese conquerors. The Caribbean island of Curacao means "heart" in Portuguese, formerly spelled coração. Portuguese is also the official language of both Angola and Mozambique.
If speakers of Spanish and Portuguese are added together - in other words, Iberian exploration & culture - we surpass Hindi to become the third largest language group in the world. Alas, Portuguese and Spanish are as different from one another as they are similar.

Apart. Apartir / apartaré. Apartheid. Three words denoting separation, yet used in nations thousands y thousands of miles 'apart.' Fascinating (to me.) Feliz Año de mi corazón :-)
Happy holidays to you Patrick and everyone else on here
To Patrick and Crew:
I thought about you all, as I stumbled upon this broadcast today on CSPAN (I know I know, but give me a minute to explain).
I was flipping channels and saw this presentation was going to discuss Arron Burr and based on Patrick's recent interview with Arron's essence, my Spidey sense tingled and I decided to give it a listen.
It starts slow, but then becomes quite fascinating and ends up being a forensic journey by the presenting Professor (& Author) of a book about not only Arron Burr, but how the early communication systems in America (& elsewhere) developed and how they evolved and started to morph into what we would call "Spin" and "Fake News" today.
If you enjoy history and looking into the development of society (especially US American society), this might be worth your time.
While, cut off from the end of this link, the CSPAN broadcast included question to the author, "If you could ride in an elevator and interview the ghost of Arron Burr, what would like to ask him?" I thought, I know someone who doesn't need an elevator. The Author thought for a moment and replied, nothing, because then I wouldn't have the book that I have that included the broader vantage point, from all the required research.
Enjoy, if a topic that sounds interesting to you.
Thank you, Tim! You're right, no elevator necessary in certain company.
Merry Christmas to you all. Always fascinating stuff Patrick.
Yuletide blessings to one and all.
Thanks for the annual Queens (The Committee) speech, a good year in review.
If anyone is interested in our Queens speech it airs today at 15:00 GMT or on YouTube https://youtu.be/xadZ0qLf1Cc
I watched it, technology is terrific! Thank you Mike.
The Mexican Revolution
I’m still working on the language question
What questions about México?
Isso mesmo, bem feito! (That's right, well done.)
I guess my intermittent internet connectivity and late model (and therefore lame) iPad, I hadn’t seen the other comments:)
When I was a teenager, Joe Biden was speaking on TV and it came to me that he would one day be president, so I took note of his name. When it didn’t happen and he instead became VP I thought I just had it slightly off. Now reading this post and some research on the Mexican revolution, I’m thinking that would be their guy and it ain’t over yet. I haven’t seen Joe Biden wearing a boot like some of the others so maybe he’s still available (insert sad emoji here).
The Committee says "Joe Biden will run; undecided for now is if Biden will choose November 2020 or wait until the November 2024 election. Age is a consideration."
The Committee has already said Trump will be re-elected in 2020. Biden will be just a few weeks shy of 82 years of age at the 2024 election.
Joyeux Noël et excellente année 2018 à tous !! Thank you Patrick for your endless generosity and work, thank you TC for all the interesting and stimulating subjects, thank you all my friends for your comments, points of view and humour ...What a wonderful group !! Long live The Amendment !! With my deepest affection, Lysa.
