The world's most famous sea. And to many, the world's favourite climate. Hot dry summers and wet winters - the Mediterranean Climate blesses the ancient lands of Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Israel, but is also duplicated in far off lands, including the Pacific North-West of the USA, California, Chile, South Africa and Western and South Australia. The sixth episode in a series exploring all the major climate zones of the world, here we show this part of the world in its full beauty, and uncover the secrets of why it is that way and show you the legendary lands and cities that lie within its influence. Covering every inhabited continent on Earth except Asia, this climate's home is of course the Mediterranean Sea itself, spanning Portugal and Morocco in the far west, and covering most of Spain, the Algerian and Tunisian coasts, the Balearic Islands, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Malta, the Cote d'Azur of France, most of Italy (the Cinque Terre, the Amalfi coast, Tuscany and Campania), and then across the Adriatic Sea to the coasts of Croatia, Montenegro and Albania, and down into the mainland of Greece and the Greek islands. Continuing east, much of Turkey is blessed by this climate, and we finish at the far shore of this sea with Syria, Lebanon and Israel. Famous cities within this area include Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Casablanca, Nice, Monaco, Florence, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Damascus, Beirut, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In North America, the entire west coast of the United States has this climate, from the cooler variant in Washington State and Oregon, down into California all the way to the Mexico border. Principal cities here that receive dry summers and wet winters are Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego. Central Chile has this climate, including its capital Santiago and principal port Valparaiso, as does the extreme south-west of South Africa including the city of Cape Town. Lastly, the island continent of Australia has regions touched by this climate, these being the south west of Western Australia and the regional capital of Perth, and parts of South Australia including the state capital of Adelaide. The Mediterranean climate is the birthplace of legendary civilisations including Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Carthage, and the Hebrew nation of Israel, as well as the spiritual home of the Catholic Church in Rome, and the old centre of Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire in Istanbul (Constantinople). - - VIDEOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHY CREDITS EXTRA SPECIAL MENTION to Milosh Kitchovitch for granting permission to use excerpts from his extensive collection of videos of our planet.

Subscribe to watch full natural history documentaries! The Danube, one of the most remarkable rivers in Europe, contains many secrets. Not just underwater, but also along its course through Austria. In one small section of river in Lower Austria, the body of water has an influence on the surrounding landscape, which has even formed its own microclimate. One speaks of so-called ""heat islands"", with temperatures that reach nearly Mediterranean levels. Human beings have created a cultural landscape oriented to viticulture over a period of millennia. This is because the warm loess and clay soil promotes the flourishing of grapevines. However, not only crop plants grow between the cities of Spitz and Krems: since primeval times, flora and fauna have settled here that have no rival in Europe. They are all species that live on the slopes of the Danube mainly due to the mild temperatures, and which are often found nowhere else. Centuries of isolation have in some cases even resulted in purely local forms. For example, the ""Clouded Apollo"" or the ""Southern Festoon"".

A Dive into History Alfred Merlin was digging for Roman remains in Tunisia in 1907 when sponge-divers identified mysterious remains – stone columns, just off-shore in the Mediterranean. Was this the legendary lost city of Atlantis? But when beautifully-crafted Roman works of art were salvaged from the site Merlin, came to an even more intriguing conclusion: these were the remains of a Roman shipwreck. The Mediterranean, he knew, was the super-highway of the ancient world – water was the only efficient way to transport heavy goods quickly throughout the Empire. And when greedy traders overloaded their ships, the resulting disasters left behind a gift for archaeologists two thousand years later. Understand where the ships were going and what they were taking, and you could decode the whole of the ancient world. And so Alfred Merlin created a whole new discipline: marine archaeology. At first it was exhausting and extremely dangerous work. Divers in the cumbersome suits with lead boots and copper helmets depended on a steady stream of air pumped from the surface. Many suffocated or died in agony from the bends. But the rewards were fabulous: individual artworks and the revelation of a trade network that saw building materials and luxuries crossing hundreds of miles of sea to construct new colonies in the image of Rome. This film shows the pioneers at work in Merlin’s time and their successors today, faced with the same challenges of salvage and preservation, and even using some of the same methods!

World renowned British Cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra joins documentary film maker Donal O’Neill on a fascinating quest to uncover, interpret and translate the misunderstood secrets of Mediterranean longevity and heart health, from the place where it all began. The story takes us to Pioppi (Population 190), the tiny fishing village 2 hours south of Naples, officially recognised by UNESCO as the home of the Mediterranean Diet. In the 1960s, this remote Italian village was an unlikely epicentre of global nutritional research. It was from here that the iconic American scientist Ancel Keys would live and work amongst local residents, laying the foundations for a modern interpretation of the traditional Mediterranean Diet. No region – or era – has had a greater impact on global nutritional policies, but closer inspection reveals that much of the magic may have been lost in translation.

There are many different perspectives on diet that can enhance your health, and help your skin as well. One of them is the Mediterranean diet. Now let's talk a little bit about what makes the Mediterranean diet so useful. Mediterranean diet is basically conceptually what people would eat if they were living around the Mediterranean base, in Greece, in Italy, in Spain, in Northern Africa, Morocco, those areas. So what does that include? First of all when you think about Mediterranean diet, you think about olive oil. Now olive oil is a terrific oil to be part of your food. It's a mono-saturated oil. It has a nice flavour. Some of that green color is anti-microbial property of the olive leaf and the olive. So it has some benefits in that direction and also it's avoiding so many nasty things that we have in our current oils which are really not healthy. It's avoiding the toxins, because when you think about the Mediterranean diet, you are not thinking about somebody spraying the olive tree. You think about a more organic and natural olive. The second thing is it avoids high temperature heating oils, and oils that are saturated fats or oils that are very highly unsaturated that would become rancidity soy. So all those things are being avoided when you are thinking of that. It's avoiding things that are really; who knows what they are, like Canola which is no such thing as a canola bean. Canola is the name of a conglomerate type of product. So getting to olive oil is the real basic step that makes you healthier. So Mediterranean diet involves fresh foods and vegetables, involves fresh fish and meat and a diet that has limited amounts of carbohydrates in it. And that could be tremendously important, both for the good things it's bringing with all those products and also for the terrible things it's avoiding.

Mediterranean trade: from the 11th century BC The Phoenicians inhabit the region of modern Lebanon and Syria from about 3000 BC (see Palestine and Phoenicia). They become the greatest traders and the best sailors and navigators of the pre-classical world. They are also the first people to establish a large colonial network based on seafaring. In all these skills they build on the example of their maritime predecessors, the Minoans of Crete. An Egyptian narrative of about 1080 BC, the Story of Wen-Amen, provides an insight into the scale of this activity. One of the characters is Wereket-El, a Phoenician merchant living at Tanis in the Nile delta. As many as 50 ships carry out his business, plying back and forth between the port of Sidon and the Nile. The most prosperous period for Phoenicia is the 10th century BC, when the surrounding region is stable. Hiram, the Phoenician king of Tyre, is an ally and business partner of Solomon, king of Israel. For Solomon's great Temple in Jerusalem Hiram provides skilled craftsmen and materials - particularly timber, including cedar from the forests of Lebanon. And the two kings go into trade in partnership. They send out Phoenician vessels on long expeditions (three years for the round trip) to bring back gold, sandalwood, ivory, monkeys and peacocks from Ophir - an unidentified place, probably on the east coast of Africa or the west coast of India. Phoenicia is famous for its luxury goods. The cedar wood is not only exported as top-quality timber for architecture and shipbuilding. It is also carved by the Phoenicians, and the same skill is adapted to even more precious work in ivory. The rare and expensive dye, Tyrian purple, complements another famous local product, fine linen. The metalworkers of the region are famous, particularly in gold. And Tyre and Sidon are known for their glass. These are only the products which the Phoenicians export. As traders and middlemen they take a cut on a much greater Cornucopia of precious goods - as the prophet Ezekiel grudgingly admits. The phonetic alphabet: from the 2nd millennium BC The extensive trade of Phoenicia requires much book-keeping and correspondence, and it is in the field of writing that the Phoenicians make their most lasting contribution to world history. The scripts in use in the world up to the second millennium BC (in Egypt, Mesopotamia or China) have all required the scribe to learn a large number of separate characters - each of them expressing either a whole word or a syllable. By contrast the Phoenicians, in about 1500 BC, develop an entirely new approach to writing. The marks made by their scribes (working in the cuneiform tradition, with a stylus on damp clay) now attempt to capture the sound of a word. This requires an alphabet of individual letters. The first colonials: from the 9th century BC The trading and seafaring skills of the Phoenicians result in a network of colonies, spreading westwards through the Mediterranean. The first is probably Citium, in Cyprus, established in the 9th century BC. But the main expansion comes from the 8th century onwards, when pressure from Assyria disrupts the patterns of trade on the Phoenician coast. Trading colonies are developed on the string of islands in the centre of the Mediterranean (Crete, Sicily, Malta, Sardinia, Ibiza) and also on the coast of north Africa. The African colonies cluster in particular around the great promontory which forms, with Sicily opposite, the narrowest channel on the main Mediterranean sea route. This is the site of Carthage Dido's city: 814 BC Carthage is the largest of the towns founded by the Phoenicians on the north African coast. It rapidly assumes a leading position among the neighbouring colonies. The traditional date of its founding (by Dido) is 814 BC, but archaeological evidence suggests that it is probably settled around the middle of the 8th century. The subsequent spread and growth of Phoenician colonies in the western Mediterranean, and even out to the Atlantic coasts of Africa and Spain, is as much the achievement of Carthage as of the original Phoenician trading cities such as Tyre and Sidon. But no doubt links are maintained with the homeland, and new colonists continue to come west. Loss of independence: 8th - 1st century BC From the 8th century BC many of the coastal cities of Phoenicia come under the control of a succession of imperial powers, each of them defeated and replaced in the region by the next - first the Assyrians, then the Babylonians, Persians and Macedonian Greeks. In 64 BC the area becomes part of the Roman province of Syria. The Phoenicians as an identifiable people fade from history, merging into the populations of the modern regions of Lebanon and northern Syria. http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/plaintexthistories.asp?historyid=ab89 https://www.britannica.com/topic/Phoenician

Around 1,200 BC, an ancient Armageddon destroyed nearly every known civilization. What could have caused it? The theories are many, but most now include one mysterious and massively destructive factor — a force only the Egyptians survived to name: The Sea People. Who were these warriors and how could they take down the world’s greatest powers in a span of just 50 years? Scale the dizzying heights of Crete’s mountain fortress with archaeologist Krzysztof Nowicki as he searches for clues. Programs such as these try to cover their shallowness with terms as secrets revealed, mystery, clues, etc. But when the viewer has carefully considered the presentation after viewing it, it is clear that little more is known than previously. “The foreign countries (ie. Sea Peoples) made a conspiracy in their islands. All at once the lands were removed and scattered in the fray. No land could stand before their arms: from Hatti, Qode, Carchemish, Arzawa and Alashiya on, being cut off [ie. destroyed] at one time. A camp was set up in Amurru. They desolated its people, and its land was like that which has never come into being. They were coming forward toward Egypt, while the flame was prepared before them. Their confederation was the Peleset, Tjeker, Shekelesh, Denyen and Weshesh, lands united. They laid their hands upon the land as far as the circuit of the earth, their hearts confident and trusting: ‘Our plans will succeed!’ In a couple of generations, about 1200 BC, several bronze age civilizations in the eastern part of the Mediterranean apparently collapsed. We cannot be certain that there was any connection among these. There is all but no hard written record as to why, beyond a few cryptic Egyptian accounts and paintings. According to this DVD, an un-named “sea people” descended upon the local villages and drove the residents to higher ground. Who these invaders were (assuming they existed), where they came from or where they went is a matter of speculation. Without hard evidence archaeologists are able to claim about anything they want to, and who is to say them nay? It all may sound scholarly but it is flimsy guesswork.

Secrets of the Aegean Apocalypse - World Documentary Films. Aegean civilization is a general term for the Bronze Age civilizations of Greece around the Aegean Sea. There are three distinct but communicating and interacting geographic regions covered by this term: Crete, the Cyclades and the Greek mainland. Crete is associated with the Minoan civilization from the Early Bronze Age. The Cyclades converge with the mainland during the Early Helladic ("Minyan") period and with Crete in the Middle Minoan period. From ca. 1450 BC (Late Helladic, Late Minoan), the Greek Mycenaean civilization spreads to Crete. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aegean_civilizations

Two years after the death of a 3-year-old Syrian toddler shook the world, we traveled to the beach where his body was found to make this poetic film about the plight of refugees. For years, this beach in southeast Turkey was the location for hundreds of thousands of Syrians fleeing the civil war back home and trying to reach safety in Greece. Like Alan Kurdi and his family, many of them never made it across. We also filmed an episode of BUZZ describing our journey, and looking into the facts and figures surrounding drownings in the Mediterranean Sea. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/SBC9Q8xxmAU And if you would like to read the words to the poem, here they are in full. SECRETS OF THE SEA (for Alan) It is just after the morning and all of us are watching. We fishermen know when to speak, when to listen. when to cast our nets out and when to keep them close when to search for life in an ocean. it is a freedom we hold dear But this morning, no one is speaking None of us have ever quite seen anything like this before this sea that swings out and brings in our livelihood bears strange news this morning bears a strange and bitter gift this morning and all of us are watching Black night red dawn blue sea exhaled its belly and swept out its soul on our white shore Red shirt blue shorts black shoes brown hair How could any of us have known when we first saw him asleep in the sand that something so small had made it so far from home that so much raging water could carry something so gentle Outside the refugee crisis was knocking at our doors a brown tidal wave rising high above our border fences and flooding our streets and our sensibilities drowning our cultural renaissance and filling our children’s ears with their fluid tongues But then the water receded pulled out and we saw him an omen a child a tolling bell a human being lying in the sand Did Aylan Kurdi know we were all waiting for him? Did he know he would change the world? Four days before that 105 fleeing bodies wash up on Libyan shores none of them make it to our Facebook timelines all of them were human Eight days before 50 refugees are killed off the coast of Libya all of them human 15 days before 6 drown off the coast of Turkey trying to reach Greece all of them human 41 days before 70 are killed on their way to Italy all of them human 66 days 17 Human More than 2000 people have drowned Trying to cross the Mediterranean This year None of us know their names none of us know their faces all of them are secrets of this sea this sea has so many secrets we have been washing our hands in it for years But if a toddler drowns in an ocean and no is there to photograph it do we still care? If he never washes up on our timelines do we still feel ashamed? do we still open our homes to the fleeing? If a nation falls if Syria falls and no one is around to pick up the pieces do we still have blood on our hands? This sea has so many secrets we have been washing our hands of it for years We fishermen know when to cast our nets when to bite our tongues it is a freedom we hold dear But if all of us have a voice and none of us know how to use it is that still freedom?

Best Documentary 2015 The Mysterious Secrets Of Ancients World [Top Documentary] Ancient Greece was a civilization belonging to a period of Greek history that lasted from the Archaic period of the 8th to 6th centuries BC to the end of antiquity (c. 600 AD). Immediately following this period was the beginning of the Early Middle Ages and the Byzantine era. Included in ancient Greece is the period of Classical Greece, which flourished during the 5th to 4th centuries BC. Classical Greece began with the repelling of a Persian invasion by Athenian leadership. Because of conquests by Alexander the Great of Macedonia, Hellenistic civilization flourished from Central Asia to the western end of the Mediterranean Sea. Classical Greek culture, especially philosophy, had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire, which carried a version of it to many parts of the Mediterranean Basin and Europe. For this reason Classical Greece is generally considered to be the seminal culture which provided the foundation of modern Western culture and is considered as the cradle of Western civilization. Classical Antiquity in Greece is preceded by the Greek Dark Ages (c. 1200 – c. 800 BC), archaeologically characterised by the protogeometric and geometric styles of designs on pottery. This period is succeeded, around the 8th century BC, by the Orientalizing Period during which a strong influence of Syro-Hittite, Assyrian, Phoenician and Egyptian cultures becomes apparent. Traditionally, the Archaic period of ancient Greece is considered to begin with Orientalizing influence, which among other things brought the alphabetic script to Greece, marking the beginning of Greek literature (Homer, Hesiod). The end of the Dark Ages is also frequently dated to 776 BC, the year of the first Olympic Games. The Archaic period gives way to the Classical period around 500 BC, in turn succeeded by the Hellenistic period at the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC.

Jerusalem (/dʒəˈruːsələm/; Hebrew: יְרוּשָׁלַיִם About this sound Yerushalayim [jeruʃaˈlajim]; Arabic: القُدس About this sound al-Quds [alˈqʊds])[note 2] is a city in the Middle East, located on a plateau in the Judaean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. One of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem was named as "Urusalima" on ancient Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets, probably meaning "City of Shalem" after a Canaanite deity, during the early Canaanite period (approximately 2400 BCE). During the Israelite period, significant construction activity in Jerusalem began in the 9th century BCE (Iron Age II), and in the 8th century the city developed into the religious and administrative center of the Kingdom of Judah. During its long history, Jerusalem has been destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. The part of Jerusalem called the City of David was settled in the 4th millennium BCE. In 1538, walls were built around Jerusalem under Suleiman the Magnificent. Today those walls define the Old City, which has been traditionally divided into four quarters—known since the early 19th century as the Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Quarters. The Old City became a World Heritage Site in 1981, and is on the List of World Heritage in Danger. Modern Jerusalem has grown far beyond the Old City's boundaries. Jerusalem is considered a holy city in the three major Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. According to the Bible, King David conquered the city from the Jebusites and established it as the capital of the united kingdom of Israel, and his son, King Solomon, commissioned the building of the First Temple.[note 4] These foundational events, straddling the dawn of the 1st millennium BCE, assumed central symbolic importance for the Jewish people. The sobriquet of holy city (עיר הקודש, transliterated ‘ir haqodesh) was probably attached to Jerusalem in post-exilic times. The holiness of Jerusalem in Christianity, conserved in the Septuagint which Christians adopted as their own authority, was reinforced by the New Testament account of Jesus's crucifixion there. In Sunni Islam, Jerusalem is the third-holiest city, after Mecca and Medina. In Islamic tradition in 610 CE it became the first qibla, the focal point for Muslim prayer (salat), and Muhammad made his Night Journey there ten years later, ascending to heaven where he speaks to God, according to the Quran. As a result, despite having an area of only 0.9 square kilometres (0.35 sq mi), the Old City is home to many sites of seminal religious importance, among them the Temple Mount with its Western Wall, Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Outside the Old City stands the Garden Tomb. Today, the status of Jerusalem remains one of the core issues in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. During the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, West Jerusalem was among the areas captured and later annexed by Israel while East Jerusalem, including the Old City, was captured and later annexed by Jordan. Israel captured East Jerusalem from Jordan during the 1967 Six-Day War and subsequently annexed it into Jerusalem, together with additional surrounding territory.[note 5] One of Israel's Basic Laws, the 1980 Jerusalem Law, refers to Jerusalem as the country's undivided capital. All branches of the Israeli government are located in Jerusalem, including the Knesset (Israel's parliament), the residences of the Prime Minister and President, and the Supreme Court. Whilst the international community rejected the annexation as illegal and treats East Jerusalem as Palestinian territory occupied by Israel, Israel has a stronger claim to sovereignty over West Jerusalem. The international community, other than the United States, the Czech Republic and Vanuatu, does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and, since the 1980s, the city hosts no foreign embassies, although a Presidential order has been issued in the United States to move its embassy to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is also home to some non-governmental Israeli institutions of national importance, such as the Hebrew University and the Israel Museum with its Shrine of the Book. In 2015, Jerusalem had a population of some 850,000 residents, comprising ca. 200,000 secular Jewish Israelis, 350,000 Ultra-Orthodox Jews and 300,000 Palestinians.[note 6] In 2011, the population numbered 801,000, of which Jews comprised 497,000 (62%), Muslims 281,000 (35%), Christians 14,000 (around 2%) and 9,000 (1%) were not classified by religion.

The Lembeh strait in the northern part of the Idonesian island of Sulawesi is a unique hotspot of marine biodiversity. Countless amazing creatures thrive in the underwater landscape surrounding Lembeh island. During four years a wildlife filmmaker couple spent many months in the region capturing hundreds of hours of behavior, lots of it never filmed before. Among other unique behavior the filmmakers were able to shoot an Anglerfish swallowing a Lionfish, a scene resembling Godzilla gulping down Dracula. Elegant seahorses, thumb-splitting Mantis shrimp, and deadly mini-octopuses are just some of the remarkable creatures traditional underwater films tend to overlook. As most of the underwater drama is hidden from plain sight only the groundbreaking macro photography in this film can reveal the awe and beauty of life in the Reef of Little Monsters.

This is the story of a land, where forces of nature are at play – beyond all things that a human can ever dominate or be able to conquer. The birth of Tyrol was one of collisions, where previous far apart continents were conjoined, wedged together and piled up on top of each other. The result is a steep world of diversity on the smallest area: depending on the depth of a valley or the height of a mountain ridge, depending on its direction and position at the edge or in the middle of the Alps, depending on whether its slope is steep or flat, there is a spot in Tyrol that is icy or mild, lush or paltry, dry or full of water. This film presents the fascinating world of the high mountains with all their diverse flora and fauna and the living conditions throughout the seasons.

#Alchemy #RealScience #magick #magic Occult Magic - Secrets of the Hidden The word Occult means secret or knowledge of the hidden. Its early masters were regarded as true magicians, and they were also the first scientists. Discoveries in the occult arts of astrology and alchemy gave birth to modern science. Many people still view the occult with suspicion, but modern science is often working on the edge of the supernatural. Physicists today study things like time travel, and parallel universes, trying to DE-code ancient myths of the past, using the art of magic and fantasy to some degree. Where the early occult master’s keepers of secrets that modern science is only beginning to discover? We can trace the occult teachings back 5000 years ago in Egypt, just before the rise of Egypt’s great pharaohs or hieroglyphics on the wall. The Egyptians believed this knowledge was given to them by Thoth, the Egyptian God of magic, who gave the world writing, language and numbers. Legends held that a book of magic written by Thoth contained the secrets of the Gods. This book was considered to be in the astral plane, not physical, but something we have to travel in consciousness to get to. Modern archaeologists say they have discovered that the Babylonians had actually created much of the knowledge Egyptians credited to Thoth, as early as 4000 BC. They were the first to measure planetary movements. They invented the Abacus, the first sequential numeric system, and some of the earliest forms of Astrology and Astronomy. It is said that this information spread to Egypt and helped develop one of history’s greatest cultures. Similar to the Egyptians, the Babylonians regarded their knowledge as divine. The Babylonians used the Occults oldest arts to understand their worlds divination or accessing the supernatural. In the Stone Age, Shamans would invoke spirits for guidance, knowledge, and protection. The Pharaohs of Egypt must have been head of their religion and most likely understood and practiced the art of magic. Much of what is called ceremonial magic, such as casting spells, the use of magic words, and incantations comes from the ancient Egyptians. Phoenicians learned this knowledge and then began to spread it throughout the Mediterranean world. They understood the code of alphabet that would line up the sounds of speech, the number cannon, zodiac signs and planets, so that with this alphabet, you could spell sacred words, count and calculate. The origin of these teachings was gradually forgotten. In 1212 BC Ramses the second, the last Pharaoh of Egypt died, invading armies conquered, and the occult secrets were lost, but not for long. Pythagoras In the 6th century BC, Pythagoras of Greece taught very similar or the same teachings to a select few that could comprehend and appreciate this knowledge. His pursuit of wisdom made him travel broadly searching for lost occult knowledge and he found it, in mystery schools scattered throughout many different cultures. He captured the elements of these teachings into a new discipline called philosophy. His foundation was from numbers. He believed that philosophy, mathematics and the divine all went together. Pythagoras looked at numbers as the most fundamental elements of creation. “All is number” He believed that numbers were a way to connect with God, and so from there came symbolism that later became numerology and Kabbalah. Pythagoras discovered that the mystery schools shared the belief that all of creation was one with God. Pythagoras also applied numbers to decode music, which the Greeks regarded as the language of the Gods. He believed that he had solved the mysteries of the Universe. His idea that music of the spheres was that heaven itself was playing an orchestral music piece. In 508 BC his school was burned down and destroyed. Some of his followers were killed or imprisoned. Generations later would build on Pythagoras philosophy and Aristotle turned it into science. After that came Christianity and religion would cast a dark shadow over occult knowledge. Since then, Judeo-Christianity became the enforced model. Magic and the occult knowledge became dark and forbidden subjects. The church then guarded its secrets with political influence and manipulation. Suggesting that the Pope was the only one who had access to the divine and God.

Phoenicia is an Ancient Greek term used to refer to the major export of the region, cloth dyed Tyrian purple from the Murex mollusc, and referred to the major Canaanite port towns, and it does not correspond exactly to a cultural identity that would have been recognised by the Phoenicians themselves. Their civilization was organized in city-states, similar to those of Ancient Greece, perhaps the most notable of which were Tyre, Sidon, Arwad, Berytus, Byblos and Carthage. Each city-state was a politically independent unit, and it is uncertain to what extent the Phoenicians viewed themselves as a single nationality. In terms of archaeology, language, lifestyle, and religion there was little to set the Phoenicians apart as markedly different from other residents of the Levant. Around 1050 BC, a Phoenician alphabet was used for the writing of Phoenician.It became one of the most widely used writing systems, spread by Phoenician merchants across the Mediterranean world, where it evolved and was assimilated by many other cultures.

The U.S. Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established during the American Revolutionary War and was effectively disbanded as a separate entity shortly thereafter. It played a major role in the American Civil War by blockading the Confederacy and seizing control of its rivers. It played the central role in the World War II defeat of Imperial Japan. The 21st century U.S. Navy maintains a sizable global presence, deploying in such areas as East Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East. It is a blue-water navy with the ability to project force onto the littoral regions of the world, engage in forward areas during peacetime, and rapidly respond to regional crises, making it an active player in U.S. foreign and defense policy. The Navy is administratively managed by the Department of the Navy, which is headed by the civilian Secretary of the Navy. The Department of the Navy is itself a division of the Department of Defense, which is headed by the Secretary of Defense. The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) is a four-star admiral and the senior naval officer of the Department of the Navy. However, the CNO may not be the highest ranking naval officer in the armed forces if the Chairman or the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are Navy officers, who by law, outrank the CNO.

Ten million trees make the labyrinthine, fissured karst formations of the Reichraming and Sensen mountain ranges an endless green wilderness. But these mountain forests that were originally almost impenetrable lie in the midst of Austria’s iron industry. For more than a thousand years, it supplied the fuel for smelting iron from innumerable little mines in the region, especially from the Styrian Erzberg.

Secrets in the Dust II Uncovering the Etruscans It took an Italian doctor in the 1870s to discover the legendary 12th City of the Etruscans, the mysterious people the Romans tried to write out of history, because they were jealous of this superior civilization that they had thrust aside. It was a chance find of a coin in a field that led Isodoro Falchi to indentify the site Vetulonia the last township of the Etruscan federation. This loose grouping of hilltop cities inhabited Italy’s beautiful Tuscany region for 1,000 years, until their disappearance around 500 BC. Because they decorated their tombs as facsimiles of their homes, we know exactly how they lived. From these, their unmistakable statues and other artifacts, we know that they used iron tools, built towns with stone temples, and lived in terraced houses with small interior pools. Theirs was a sensuous, prosperous lifestyle of banquets and pleasure, with equality between the sexes - and a healthy interest in sex itself. But the Etruscans had one remarkable, almost unique characteristic. As if all this was too good to be true, they predicted their own downfall, after a thousand years. The Romans seemed almost too happy to oblige, for no-one must be seen to have influenced them -- even though they built on the achievements of the Etruscans. Literally, in the case of Rome, where they even adopted their sewerage system! In Falchi’s day the archaeological authorities in Rome seemed almost as reluctant to recognize his discoveries as the Romans themselves had been to remember the Etruscans; but today’s geneticists have proved that Falchi was right. They have discovered that the current inhabitants of Campiglia Marittima , once called Vetulonia, are descended from the Etruscans of old; and they have solved a second mystery. The original ancestors of the Etruscans came not from Italy but from Asia Minor: today’s Turkey. From the latest excavations by Simona Rafanelli and Sylvia Guideri we understand one more crucial fact. The Romans may like to pretend that the Etruscans never existed - and the Etruscans may have predicted their own downfall. But today, archaeologists find evidence that Etruscans and Romans lived in harmony for a long period, worshipping the same gods, before the Romans took over, conquering lands far beyond the Italian hills to become the superpower of the ancient world.

Second Punic War Also called Second Carthaginian War, second (218–201 BCE) in a series of wars between the Roman Republic and the Carthaginian (Punic) empire that resulted in Roman hegemony over the western Mediterranean In the years after the First Punic War, Rome wrested Corsica and Sardinia from Carthage and forced Carthaginians to pay an even greater indemnity than the payment exacted immediately following the war. Eventually, however, under the leadership of Hamilcar Barca, his son Hannibal, and his son-in-law Hasdrubal, Carthage acquired a new base in Spain, whence they could renew the war against Rome. In 219 Hannibal captured Saguntum (Sagunto) on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Rome demanded his withdrawal, but Carthage refused to recall him, and Rome declared war. Because Rome controlled the sea, Hannibal led his army overland through Spain and Gaul and across the Alps, arriving in the plain of the Po River valley in 218 BCE with 20,000 infantry and 6,000 cavalry. Roman troops tried to bar his advance but were outmatched, and Hannibal’s hold over northern Italy was established. In 217 Hannibal, reinforced by Gallic tribesmen, marched south. Rather than attack Rome directly, he marched on Capua, the second largest town in Italy, hoping to incite the populace to rebel. He won several battles but still refrained from attacking the city of Rome, even after annihilating a huge Roman army at Cannae in 216. The defeat galvanized Roman resistance. A brilliant defensive strategy conducted by Quintus Fabius Maximus Cunctator harried the Carthaginians without offering battle. Thus, the two armies remained deadlocked on the Italian peninsula until 211 BCE, when Rome recaptured the city of Capua. In 207 Hasdrubal, following Hannibal’s route across the Alps, reached northern Italy with another large army supported by legions of Ligurians and Gauls. Hasdrubal marched down the peninsula to join Hannibal for an assault on Rome. Rome, exhausted by war, nevertheless raised and dispatched an army to check Hasdrubal. Gaius Nero, commander of the southern Roman army, slipped away north also and defeated Hasdrubal on the banks of the Metauros River. Hannibal maintained his position in southern Italy until 203, when he was ordered to return to Africa. Italy was free of enemy troops for the first time in 15 years. During the long mainland campaign, fighting had continued as well on Sardinia and Sicily, which had become Rome’s chief sources of food. Aided by internal upheaval in Syracuse, Carthage reestablished its presence on the island in 215 and maintained it until 210. Meanwhile, in Spain, Roman forces maintained pressure on Carthaginian strongholds. The Roman general Publius Scipio won a decisive battle at Ilipa in 206 and forced the Carthaginians out of Spain. After his Spanish victory Scipio determined to invade the Carthaginian homeland. He sailed for Africa in 204 and established a beachhead. The Carthaginian council offered terms of surrender but reneged at the last minute, pinning its hopes on one last battle. The massed Carthaginian army, led by Hannibal, was defeated at Zama. The Carthaginians accepted Scipio’s terms for peace: Carthage was forced to pay an indemnity and surrender its navy, and Spain and the Mediterranean islands were ceded to Rome. https://www.britannica.com/event/Second-Punic-War https://www.britannica.com/event/Punic-Wars#ref1247438

In the very heart of Europe, precisely in the centre of Austria, lies one of the most marvellous beauty spots of the Alps – a woodland, water and mountain wilderness that shuns no comparison with, say, wild Canada. Yet its rivers and lakes, ice-clad peaks, deep gorges and giant caves are just a stone’s throw away from picturesque cultural centres where Austria’s monarchs spent their summers.

The Mediterranean Sea is a world of impressive diversity where ocean sunfish and whales live side by side, and colourful corals provide a home for smaller creatures. But human beings have left their mark here for thousands of years: ancient shipwrecks and fighter planes from the Second World War litter the ocean floor, while until recently raw sewage was fed straight into the sea. The impact has been devastating – today the Mediterranean is an ecosystem on the edge. But there is a glimmer of hope as measures to protect the sea from pollution and excessive disturbance are being put into place. Sandrine Ruiton from the University of Marseille specialises in research on artificial reefs to build up the lost marine biodiversity near cities like Marseille, one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Until recently it was responsible for seriously polluting the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. Christian Petron himself has been instrumental in raising awareness of this ecosystem in dire straights. His own 30-year-old archive footage shows the extent of the pollution in graphic detail. Both Sandrine Ruiton and Christian are involved in the hugely successful ‘Prado Reef 2006’ project, which is designed to repopulate the local waters by encouraging the colonisation of new reefs. Even old shipwrecks and fighter planes turned into artificial reefs and first indications offer grounds for cautious optimism. But to be able to accurately assess the success of these artificial reefs, detailed population counts are absolutely essential. But their accuracy is questionable when carried out by divers with conventional equipment – reef creatures are notoriously shy and many are likely to hide at the approach of a noisy diver. So Sandrine Ruiton wants to find out if Frederic can achieve more accurate population counts on these fragile reefs by being less intrusive. His ability to move and behave almost like a fish without any cumbersome diving equipment allows him closer access without frightening the wildlife off. His first destination is the wreck of an freighter, sunk after world-war 2, closely followed and observed by Christian Petron. The collection of creatures found here are delicate and extremely cautious. But this dive also poses real challenges for Fred: diving in a wreck brings particular dangers with it, especially for a freediver. Nevertheless, he is determined to press on with his attempt to evaluate the state of Mediterranean marine wildlife. The artificial reef population surveys are only part of the reason why Frederic has come to the Mediterranean. He also works together with Dr. Pierre Chevaldonne, a scientist at the ‘Station Marine D’Endoume/Marseille’. Both are interested in an underwater cave that could be invaluable to modern science. Organisms and animals that are usually associated with much deeper waters thrive in this deep dark cave. In particular a collection of sponges could be of interest, not just because they provide an endless supply of biomarkers that are very sensitive to environmental changes: they are also highly relevant for modern medicine. Sponges are known to provide AZT (Azido-Thymidin) – currently one of the most used medications for the treatment of AIDS and in the fight against cancer. The sponges generate these substances as dangerous chemical weapons against predators or as a defence against harmful bacteria. The research team is renowned for their work on sponges, but the breathing bubbles emitted by conventional drivers would collect at the cave ceiling and gradually kill the cave dwellers. But Frederic’s approach is very different. By holding his breath, he can ensure that the sponges and other cave organisms are not threatened. He is able to explore the cave in detail and report his findings and bring samples back to the research group. This research can provide ground-breaking insights into modern medicine, as well as giving an indication of the health of the Mediterranean waters by examining the sponges’ biomarkers. Together, Frederic’s involvement in the artificial reef projects as well as the underwater cave exploration are extremely valuable contributions to the quest to document and protect the diversity of Mediterranean marine wildlife. He is in a unique position to access and approach the wildlife, that cannot be replicated by using conventional diving methods, and as such is an incredible opportunity for the scientists to gain a new window to the underwater life of the Mediterranean.

The Morava river with its forests is one of the most beautiful and ecologically valuable riverscapes featuring the richest biodiversity in all of Central Europe. Like a green ribbon, the riverine forests of the Morava – together with those of the Danube and the Dyje – link the Alps with the Carpathians, forming a bridge between Eastern and Central Europe. The influence of the Pannonian climate with its hot and dry summers combines with the slowly receding high waters to form a mosaic of extremely different habitats: moist meadows lie close to sand dunes, riverine forests alternate with dry primeval oak forests. This enormous diversity of habitats creates a refuge for animal and plant species, a specific composition that cannot be found in any other place.
