Who was Einsteins first wife

"Tashin. Mitchell here this week with a controversy that just will not be put to bed. What do you think Russia language of science? Form Language asked me are the narrowly and a fan figura. Can you guess who this is? How is it that fantastic difficult language if international think of wild wiry hair and dark penetrating is he's arguably one of the greatest original thinkers of all time and certainly in science in strive for. An outdoors. And clarity of. concepts. got. Their. Mutuel. Relation. Anti correspondent who sensory date it's L. Dan Stein yes. predicted the behavior of black holes and their immense gravitational pull through his general theory of relativity, which visualized gravity is warping of the fabric of the universe or space time around objects. But have you heard of a woman called Malaysia Malaysia Marriage Johnston to babies sauce she was his first wife and a promising scientist in the making in her own right when they met and fell in love. Now, there's been a vocal malivert fan club in recent years. It says she was fundamental to Albert's early scientific success, even a key collaborator on his theories and that her legacy was hidden. Will a brand new investigation strongly contests this climb and over the next two episodes I'm going to drilling into that evidence to let you decide buckle up. It matters just to know the truth I and Stein is portrayed as the great hero of Science and N Stein is seen as a god and you don't touch demand. For some people is just like attacking the the Cohen that the Bible, you don't touch those things. We try not to make up stories. And this story appears to be largely the hopeful story people hoped it was true they it was true but it doesn't seem to be true. She. Helped in a great. Measure. That Einstein became what he became. I. Have Serious doubts that he would have got where he is. If he did not have her supporters, he needed someone to discuss them. He needed someone to calculate them. Compare them. So she left us a genius that's her gift to the world. It's important that the truth be told when stories are based on very unreliable evidence. When you start to examine the sources, the stories just aren't hold out. And stories that matter. Mathematical abilities rivaled on stands that she co-authored on Stan's early research that they worked late into the not together blazing a trial for quantum physics. Malivert and our wits relationship really on the came to be understood at all in the nineteen eighty s when early letters between them were found in a family bank faulting California very little other material evidence remained then and physicist Dr. Pauline. Gang Gagnon believes they could a reason for that. Two people were really adamant that this story would not come out about manage. These were Helen Ducasse the personal secretary of Albert Einstein and these are two. Nedam. Both of them became, but they were the executors of his estate and these people were adamant that this story will not come. Polling is a particle physicist now retired in Germany she spent much of her career investigating dark matter at the European Laboratory, a of particle physics soon, and at Indiana University she's taken up. Malaya's 'cause and explains that even elbow full story was with health for a long time. The first biographies came out more than twenty years after the death of Albert Einstein the reason was that do not end for example, not allow anything in writing unless he would be righted himself. The everything that was in the possession of Albert Einstein was cleaned up it has to do with the fact that auto. Natan after the death of militia marriage. In. One, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, eight, or two thousand came to Zurich to her apartment. To search the apartment and probably took everything that he could fine of scientific merit. So these people made every effort to clean up what was there and to erase any trace of market right?

Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium

"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway

Tokyo raises Covid-19 alert to highest amid spike in cases

"In Zurich Seven, twenty, two here in London Tokyo has raised its corona virus level to its highest in response to the number of cases, spiking the city's governor held a news conference, in which he held aloft a red and orange card to colors, which indicate the seriousness of the threat, but I'll Tokyo Bureau chief Wilson joins me now with more welcome back view now I'm tell us what's happening where you are. Yeah. That's right Governor Koi K. Yesterday. raise the level to the highest level to read I. Think for most people in Tokyo. It's very difficult to interpret. It's a really symbolic system of guidelines that really don't. They have no binding force I think what people are really looking at is how the infection numbers doing and the news just coming in now they'll be two hundred eighty around two hundred and eighty record to stay, which would actually be a record for Tokyo. So I think that's the number that people will be looking at I. Think the governor. Qweik's alert system has has honestly not been that helpful. Those people don't quite understand what it means. The guidelines came out in May originally. When when the state emergency was lifted, they were revised in June and it's partly to do with the shift in in in how the virus is is affecting people now the first wave of ours with affecting more older people this time it's younger people asymmetric. And what governor? Governor quick as saying what we really need to focus on now is. Can the health system coke? So that's what these guidelines are referring to it. Saying is the health system on depression, which it seems that it is, and she said that the trying to secure I think nearly three thousand. That's people who have mild symptoms ever. Do we know where this the spread of the disease is coming from? You mentioned the fact that it is young people now who are turning up with positive tests. Yeah I mean they've certainly be mentioning a lot about nightlife small balls. They been people working ball state. They've been co opted to making video. Saying this is how we're going to do business from now on. We're not drinking from the same bottle. I mean the mind boggles. That was going on anyway, but they've said that going to. Enforce these. Practices just so that customers surprise and there's been a cluster in certain areas of Tokyo. It's not just Tokyo. The areas around Tokyo that have. Always had a similar kind of. Trajectory for the virus Kinda go fight Chiba. And also all soccer in the fall west of Japan, so that that's one area, but they're also actually rather love untraceable infections that something I know, the Governor Koi case worried about so that's why she she said situation she she's referred to severe, and European, wouldn't be considered that the compared to numbers in Europe, but certainly hair it's it's considered pretty bad at the moment. No businesses as far as I can gather, have been asked to close and what you described. There are people not sharing bottles does sound rather. Astonishing, giving the level of sort of lockdown at the rest of the world is experiencing and still is experiencing. Is there a sense that now? The the the authorities in Tokyo are really getting in control of this thing, or is that still a sense is Estela gap between what should be done or anything? People think should be done what people are actually doing. Well. I mean there's always been this issue. That nothing is `binding in Intercon? It's always about advising people cautioning them asking them and what's happened. Is Japan that people are quite happy to do that? We don't see any of this problem with people refusing to end loss, there's not that people are extremely cautious. The the the sharing of book was I'm sure rating most people here as well so I think people have really really got hold of the situation. You know as a group among saying Tokyo if you look around everyone. The for example, people are very cautious to kind of being built in now. Kids about school, but they're all very socially distance wearing masks so that there is already built in I. Think you know what goes what happens from now is it's really difficult to predict because governor Taylor last month, said you know infections go by fifty a day. We'll have to think about dozing businesses again now. We're already at two hundred and eighty today so clearly. It's not that straightforward. It's a much more. More complex situation you know, how and as I said it's, it's different group of people now because the eysenck domestic, then not needing the hospital beds that were were really ought to pressure in April. When when the when the pandemic was was thought to peaks, actually so it slightly different situation. Now we're now also in a situation and the time when tourism should be really at the heart of what's happening in Japan. We should be in the middle of the Olympics notwithstanding but. The central government has. been trying to boost domestic, tourism. It's come up against some rather understandable opposition hasn't at namely from those who would be receiving visitors from the likes of Tokyo where there. Is this this this outbreak? Absolutely I mean that's a campaign called the go-to travel campaign which the government launched, it was supposed to be August actually that started, but they've brought it forward to twenty second of July which should have been the long weekend that launched the the Olympics. It was supposed to be a holiday weekend. We don't know the Olympics, but we still have the holiday weekend and she. Has Launched his campaign, which will basically encourage people to trouble ever Japan? They'll be heavily subsidized. You've got money back on travel hotels from September. You'll get voucher to spend wherever you go, so it's. It's really encouraging people to move around on the reaction. It'd be very bright, mixed some areas already welcoming it that that very keen to get travelers, but some places. It walked in the north of Japan where they've had no cases. Just said now is not the time, but then don't particularly wanting this to happen, so. It really varies from from prefect prefecture, but I think there's lots of nervousness and I can say that I have traveled a little bit in Japan and the last couple of weeks and I can certainly say that people are not about through to see anyone from Tokyo coming into rural areas at the moment. Even if you're masked up that that very concern Tokyo is, the numbers are much higher than anywhere else and the loss of concerned about people from Tokyo. Particularly traveling around the country, and what is it? Do you think that will reassure people that? There are calls for stronger testing measures and tracing measures to be carried out. Then both like I said that maybe one thing they do is they actually offer free tests? If not reassurance, people you know the to show that these tourists do not have a virus. I think it also shows that the pressure on Shinto be how difficult it will be opened the country up to. International travelers you know all the measurements really hard to persuade people to travel within Japan, so it is difficult, and and you know these number very public, and you know people will see the news today

THERE IS A SOLUTION

"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard. And I'm an alcoholic sober since January nineteen eighty eight one day at a time. In this the Thirty Eighth Episode Chapter Two there is a solution from the second edition of alcoholics anonymous originally published in nineteen fifty, five. There were only a handful of edits to this chapter from the first edition, but one of them is most significant as it referred to a celebrated physician who treated the American businessman Roland H. The second edition named that Docker as the world famous psychoanalyst Dr Carl Young. WHO PRESCRIBED FOR ROLAND? In Zurich, in the Early Nineteen Thirties? As recounted on page twenty, six of the second edition Dr Young told Roland H that his alcoholism was incurable by psychoanalysis, and that the only thing that might help was a spiritual experience. That suggestion along with membership in the Oxford Group lifted rowlands compulsion to drink, and later helped him bring abby t to sobriety. EBI INTERN HELP SOBER UP. Bill Wilson Co founder of a in a nineteen sixty one letter of gratitude to Dr Young Bill acknowledged that Rowland's conversation with Dr Young was the first link in the chain of events that led to the founding of alcoholics anonymous. And Now? From the second edition of the book chapter, Two, there is a solution. We of alcoholics anonymous, no thousands of men and women who were once just as hopeless as bill. Nearly all have recovered. They have solved the drink problem. We are average Americans. All sections of this country and many of its occupations are represented as well as many political, economic, social and religious backgrounds. We are. Who Normally would not mix? But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness and an understanding, which is indescribably wonderful. We are like the passengers of a great line. Her the moment after rescued from shipwreck, when Camaraderie Joyous nece and democracy pervade the vessel from steerage to captain's table, unlike the feelings of the ship's passengers, however, our joy in escape from disaster does not subside as we go our individual ways. But feeling of having shared in a common peril is one element in the powerful cement which binds us. But that in itself would never have held us together as we are now joined. The tremendous fact for every one of us is that we discovered a common solution. We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action. This is the great news. This book carries to those who suffer alcoholism. And illness of this sort, and we have come to believe it. An illness involves those about us in a way, no other human sickness can. If a person has cancer. All are sorry for him, and no one is angry or hurt. But not so with the alcoholic illness for with it there goes annihilation of all the things worthwhile in life it engulfs all whose lives touched the sufferers. It brings misunderstanding fierce resentment, financial insecurity, disgusted friends and employers warped lives a blameless children, sad wives and parents. Anyone can increase the list. We hope this volume will inform and comfort those who are or who may be affected. They are many. Highly. Competent psychiatrists who have dealt with US found it sometimes impossible to persuade an alcoholic to discuss his situation without reserve, strangely enough wives, parents and intimate friends usually find us even more unapproachable, then do the psychiatrist and the doctor, but the X. problem drinker who has found the solution who is properly armed with facts about himself can generally win the entire competence of another alcoholic in a few hours. Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished. Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished. That, the man who is making the approach has had the same difficulty that he obviously knows what he is talking about that. His whole deportment shouts at the new prospect that he is a man with a real answer that he has no attitude of holier than thou nothing, whatever except the sincere desire to be helpful, there are no fees to pay no axes to grind no people to please no lectures to be endured. These are the conditions. We found most effective. After such an approach many take up their beds and walk again.

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland.

Might that told me. Oh yeah maybe you should check out on then. They had this fantastic On then I learn how to use that Make Forum software and other lake websites like that and that's how I go into Bison and if you wanted to mean never really learned any other programming languages if you don't have to you you know I think there's value in other programming languages but people who know python are in a bit of a special place because it's so widely used and accepted. You're not forced to go learn something else necessarily other than Java script. Everybody's forced to learn javascript. If you want to do anything on the web at that's right so I know a little bit of Joschka and I was a fitness physics student at university than what the Sun as well as a physicist a aloft C.

The giant beaver of the Pleistocene was the size of a black bear. And the titanic. Boa was a snake longer than school bus and as big around as a tractor tire.

A stupendous geographic as a giant freshwater turtle the size of four door sedan which lived in the coastal wetlands of South America. Between five and ten million years ago before the Amazon River was formed. The study found that the turtle was one hundred times heavier and its closest modern relative and had the largest campus. Or Shell of any turtle ever known this whopping two thousand five hundred pound. Goliath. That's one thousand. One hundred and fifty kilos was also ready for battle. Some campuses were tricked out with front facing horns sitting on both sides of their head. Something scientists haven't seen before in prehistoric Turtles Marcello Sanchez director of the Paleontological Institute and Museum at the University of Zurich said in a press. Release the two Shell. Types indicate that two sexes of stupendous existed males with horns shells and females with hoernlund shells. Their shells were also covered in big scars and puncture marks suggesting a few things about dependence. These big brutes were fighters the males and females did look different and the males might have even fought each other for access to the females. The horns also have come in handy in fighting off another unspeakably hefty freshwater. Animal the purse. Soroush which was came in a group of reptiles related to alligators. That weighed nine.

"Takes taken to task for refusing to pay out. No money for you. This is kind of an interesting convoluted take on the whole attribution discussion. There's historically my perception is there's a lot of organizations that. Kinda wanna get that have been breached kinda wanna get to the point where they can say. Well, you know, it was a nation state. You're stealing thunder from the notes I took. But absolutely. Yeah. You know, it's kind of like if it's a nation state than hell could they possibly be expected to fend against it. Because it's a state-sponsored nations. You know, this is this is near impossible to defend against right? Well on the flip side of that this insure went, well, if it's a nation state attack, that's an act of war. We're not paying into now. Now, the companies end up in a bind of do they get the PR win of saying was a nation state. Whether it is right. I mean, let's let's assume they don't know, and they're just sort of reaching to nation state or state sponsored as a PR win. Now, they've got worry about how that's going to play with their insurer. Yeah, exactly, exactly. If they even control that messaging often when it's a big attack that they don't even own them messaging, but good point good point. So the case here is is is between Mondelez who's Spanish. Food company in insurance companies Zurich insurance group, and so I think most everybody who has since the show is probably pretty familiar with not pet. Yeah. That was the worm that rain around back in two thousand seventeen was purportedly an attack by Russia against Ukrainian organizations in didn't do a great job of staying within the borders of the Ukraine kind of went here there and everywhere in cost a whole lot of damage, and in so in this particular case Zirk is saying, well, you know, this is clearly. Enact of war against. From from Russia against the crane in, you know, you're you're kind of collateral damage and our policy X clued such things in and so. You know, there's kind of an interesting back and forth. The attorney for Mondelez is basically saying, you know. This in the in the cyber domain the act the activities of you know, quote were like behavior are almost indistinguishable from if not completely indistinguishable from normal cybercrime. And it's so, you know, it's going to have to play out in the courts will be really interesting to see I suspect that you know, even even net of this. This particular case playing out in court, you know, you have the ability as a as a consumer to negotiate those kinds of terms with your insurance company could certainly drive. Costs up right because I suspect the average insurance carriers going to take a look and see say that you know, the. You know, the the damage historically caused by a nation state or cyber war is going to probably be higher than than, you know, something that's not and therefore that's we're going to have to cover those losses. The premiums are going to have to be higher and Bob Laso. You know, it's like adding a teenage driver to your car insurance. I get it. Holy crap. Yes. Boy, do I know..

It's the pit of that planet a piece of this fractured goddess planet, and and these people viewed planets is giving. Goddess type metaphors or human body type metaphors such an describes how Enki created the human body. And in my interpretation, I show how Enki implanted those feminine souls of PM out into the human body. What he discovered was that they could they wouldn't resurrect. In other words, those souls couldn't use the resurrection machine properly. So Enke had to bring forward to the earth. Another group of souls, and these souls acted sort of they fulfilled the role of sort of like a savior. They were masculine in nature. They were solar to to the feminine lunar counterpart of the souls from the interaction between those two souls caused a ratchet effect where they would work their way up the spinal cord the tree of life within and unite in the pineal gland area of the human brain.
