One of the longer-running sagas here on Techdirt concerns the disgraceful situation regarding the flag of Australia's Aboriginal peoples. Mike first wrote about this in 2010, and again in June of this year. The problem is that what is now widely...

When Pope Gregory defined the seven deadly sins that we should avoid, he also included a counter-balancing set of values that we should espouse and adopt. These are:
Faith is belief in the right things (including the virtues!). Hope is taking a positive future view, that good will prevail. Charity is concern for, and active helping of, others. Fortitude is never giving up. Justice is being fair and equitable with others. Prudence is care of and moderation with money. Temperance is moderation of needed things and abstinence from things which are not needed.
Which brings us back to platonism, natural philosophy and hermetic teachings to the pursuit of Logos...
Stoics Edit Stoic philosophy began with Zeno of Citium c. 300 BC, in which the logos was the active reason pervading and animating the Universe. It was conceived as material and is usually identified with #God or #Nature. The Stoics also referred to the seminal logos ("logos spermatikos"), or the law of generation in the Universe, which was the principle of the active reason working in inanimate matter. Humans, too, each possess a portion of the divine logos.
The Stoics took all activity to imply a logos or #spiritual principle. As the operative principle of the world, the logos was anima mundi to them, a concept which later influenced Philo of Alexandria, although he derived the contents of the term from Plato. In his Introduction to the 1964 edition of Marcus Aurelius' #Meditations, the Anglican priest Maxwell Staniforth wrote that "Logos [...] had long been one of the leading terms of Stoicism, chosen originally for the purpose of explaining how deity came into relation with the #universe".
How the concept of "thinking with your #heart" - the ratio of the #soul will always recognise the Forms and patterns of #Logos as #Socrates & #Plato would say... For the Soul comes from Form, and a spark of the #Lotus is imbedded in all of us...
Basically the ancients did not see "learning" as putting in "new #knowledge" - it is simply refreshing & waking up the "old knowledge" - like helping someone with amnesia remembering who he was by presenting familar images and objects...
In that sense, we all know - only some have to be remembered :)
A 12-year-old indigenous girl living in a community near Adelaide has taken her own life - making her the fifth Aboriginal girl to commit suicide in nine days. The wave of reported suicides include three cases in Western Australia, one in...

MUSIC FOR THE NATIVE AMERICANS featured The Red Road Ensemble, a North American #Aboriginal group. Originally designed as the backdrop to a TBS documentary, the album returned Robertson to his roots, blending traditional Native rhythms with a folk/country sound. Record execs thought it too 'unconventional' for mainstream radio so no singles were released. Even so, the album scored big with Native Americans with tracks like "Mahk Jchi (Heartbeat Drum Song)", "Coyote Dance", "Golden Feather", and "Cherokee Morning Song."
Ulali is a Native American women's a cappella group. Founded in 1987, it includes;
Pura Fé Crescioni
Jennifer E Kreisberg.
Ulali's sound encompasses an array of indigenous music including Southeast United States choral singing (pre-blues and gospel) and pre-Columbian music. Ulali's live performances address Native struggles and accomplishments.
The group was first called "Pura Fe'" and included three female singers and three males. Later, the group became a duo comprising singers, Soni Moreno and Pura Fé before eventually becoming a trio.
Walela is a Native American trio of singers. The group was founded in 1996 by sisters Rita Coolidge and Priscilla Coolidge, with Priscilla's daughter Laura Satterfield as the third member. Featured as part of Robbie Robertson and the Red Road Ensemble's album Music for The Native Americans, their distinctive vocal blend brings to life "The Cherokee Morning Song" and has allowed them to tour to an international audience. During the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Walela had the opportunity to represent their nations—both Cherokee and the United States—as they performed extensively in the Olympic Park.

This is an #old #VHS #mono #recording from #1997 from #Danish #TV. I do not own this VHS tape, I got it from a friend who spend many months on restoration of the original VHS tape. This is the only #perfect copy out, and that makes it unique.
