"The Perfect Score"

Inspiration doesn't come easily to everyone. Some people are more prone to brilliant ideas than others. Such is how inventors develop revolutionary innovation, how artists create innovative styles and how musicians write amazing pieces that can strike the heart of another. Where does such inspiration come from? Scientists say ideas come from within ourselves and that it is in the active engagement of the artist with his or her world, through preparation, conscious attention, curiosity, effort, and a dash of serendipity, that ideas are born but are humans really capable of such complex thought processes? Sure, a creative man is capable of forming something innovative but the idea is always based on another idea or something that he or she already know. So how did such amazing new ideas come about?

In ancient Greece, the priests believed that the goddesses of inspiration, the nine Muses, touch the hearts of human creators. They were considered the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, lyric songs, and myths that were related orally for centuries in these ancient cultures. According to Hesiod, they were daughters of Zeus, the second generation king of the gods, and the offspring of Mnemosyne, goddess of memory. For Alcman and Mimnermus, they were even more primordial, springing from the early deities, Uranus and Gaia. Gaia is Mother Earth, an early mother goddess who was worshiped at Delphi from prehistoric times, long before the site was rededicated to Apollo, possibly indicating a transfer to association with him after that time.

Each muse govern a portion of inspirational knowledge. Calliope inspired men like Homer into writing epic poetry, Clio inspired scholars to see the importance of history, Euterpe helped musicians compose scores that were heaven to anyone's ears, Erato helped suitors write love poetry that is just as effective as Cupid's arrow, Melpomene inspires writers like Shakespeare to create pieces that centered around the theme of tragedy, Polyhymnia inspires hymns that honor the gods, Terpsichore help dancers find their rhythm, Thalia promotes pieces that bring laughter to the world and finally, Urania, who teaches mankind to explore the astronomical world.

Legends say that if a man can seduce one of these goddesses into becoming their lover, they will grant you with inspiration beyond anything this world has ever seen.

You are a musician, a violinist to be exact and you have a problem. Up until now, your fountain of ideas flowed quite abundantly and you won several national awards with your skill. Like any dedicated musician, you loved the violin. You like the crescendo coming out of the violin, because that reminded you of sunrise and waking up after a sweet dream. When you hear pizzicato, you instantly remember playing hide and seek with your childhood friends. The magical shoulder instrument brings relaxation and moments to the audience as the sound of vibration touches you inside your heart. Despite your success, the public begin to demand more and more of your innovative pieces.

The workload was so much that you were constantly frustrated, throwing balled up music scores all over your studio. You didn't want to quit playing. No, of course not. Playing the violin had became a prominent part of your life and you just cannot part with it. You spent countless hours in the library, looking for anything that could help you produce a new piece of music. One night as you stumbled tiredly through the music section of the library, one particular book caught your eye. It didn't look as if it belonged among the brand new books around it. This one was very old. A musty smell touched your nose as you pulled it out from its neighbors. The cover was made of fine leather, old but still in good condition. You could just barely read the title:

"How to Get Inspired"

You snorted a little but took it to your seat in the dimly-lit corner of the library and decided to give it a try. With some difficulty, you managed to read the worn out pages. It didn't tell you to take things one at a time nor did it tell you how to create innovative pieces. Instead, it turned to something that you never even considered: Magic.

The spell written in the book was said to summon the muse of your choice. You sighed and ran a tired hand through your dark locks. Might as well, right? It's not like you had anything better to do. You looked around cautiously, making sure that there were no eavesdroppers to laugh at your possible stupidity. The last thing you needed was a reporter at your door, asking about witch-craft. You spoke the words on the page in a quiet but clear voice and then her name.

"Euterpe."

The name was certainly a strange one for a beautiful goddess but it sounded powerful as it left your lips. Nothing happened. You sighed and tossed the book aside as you stood up. Stupid...just like you had thought. With an irritated face, you threw open the door and made your way home. A feminine figure sat on the railing near your door with an ornate harp. The melody that she was playing was beautiful, dark and exotic. You didn't recognize the piece which was extremely rare. After weeks of flipping through millions of music scores, you just about knew almost every piece that was ever composed.

She must've written it herself....

You thought in awe as you listened. The woman playing it was just as beautiful as the music she was playing. Alluringly, she would blink her eyes from time to time, allowing her eyelashes to flutter like the wings of a butterfly as her long slender fingers picked at the strings of her harp. My god, her eyes were simply spellbinding. Her left eye was a rapturous shade of cerulean blue, much more appealing then your own, and hazel-auburn rondured sphere orbited in her right eye. Each one held a coruscate gleam that enhanced their beauty. Her seraph's ears were pierced by golden hoops that were concealed by caramel colored blonde waves, enhanced by highlights of pink and blue. Pale pinkish hair framed her angelic face and shined lustrously in the moonlight. It was inevitable and certain that once you looked at her, you couldn't look away. She kept you still and held your beating heart with one gaze.

You stared, gawking at her as she finished playing and.......

A lot has been said and heard about the European debt crisis, but what is it really about? It simply means the failure of the Euro, the currency that ties together 19 European countries in an intimate but flawed manner. For more than 3yrs, Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Italy and Spain have all teetered on the brink of financial collapse, threatening to bring down the entire continent and the rest of the world as we can all agree that the state of the European nations or continent as a whole has a notable effect on the world. But how did this crisis start and what happened??
We begin at the Unification of Europe.
For most of Europe's history, it's been at war with itself and countries at war with each other tends to do less business together. Europe has been always a continent that had trade barriers, tariffs and different currencies and doing business across borders was a major difficult task. You needed to pay fees to exchange currencies and tariffs were needed to be paid to buy and sell in other countries and this stifled economic growth. The world war 2 began and Europe was devastated. Due to the devastation level and situation of things, the fastest way to rebuild the continent was to begin the removal of these barriers. To begin with, coal and steel tariffs came down, this way, a steel mill in one country could sell to a builder in another. This easy means of doing business gave the survivors an idea, a unified Europe, a union across the continent that will end as well as prevent future wars. Nations began to band together towards this goal by bringing down trade barriers, lowering the cost of doing business. One of the last barriers to fall was the Berlin wall and with the united Germany, Europe was ready and 27 countries signed the MAASTRICHT TREATY and the European Union was created. This made doing business across the borders easier, but there was still one major obstacle, the different currencies. A decade later, the Euro was launched on the 1st of January ,1999.
The countries that adopted the Euro abandoned the use of their currencies and also stopped their own monetary policies, thereby giving control of the newly developed European central bank (ECB).
Now, the Eurozone now had a unified monetary policy, but with many different fiscal policies which is a key reason for the current debt crisis.
Let's look at fiscal and monetary policy.
There is a difference between monetary and fiscal policy and it's very important to have an understanding of this.
Monetary policy controls the money supply, meaning exactly how much money there is in the economy and what the interest rates are for borrowing money. Fiscal policy controls how a government collects in taxes and how much the government spends.
A government can and should spend as much as it collects in taxes because anything above that will require borrowing, this is called deficit spending which is also known as negative cash flow. Before the euro, countries like Greece had to pay high interests to borrow and they borrowed a lot, which made the lenders quite uncomfortable, but now that they are part of the euro zone's new united monetary policy, the amount that could be borrow hit the skies. Smaller countries suddenly had access to a lot of credit. For example, Greece and other countries that could only borrow at rates of about 18% could now borrow at same low rates as Germany. But how was or is this possible?
Joining the euro zone is almost like sharing a credit card and it's safe to say, Germany's credit card. It is believed that if Greece was unable to pay its debts, Germany and the other bigger European economies would step in settle their debts because they are bound by a common currency. So with a new ample quantity of cheap credit, Grece and other European nations were able to adjust their fiscal policies and their spending was increased to unimaginable levels. Some countries embarked on huge deficit spending campaigns, primarily for politicians running for different offices to get elected. They made promises of better lives, more jobs and magnanimous pensions, all paid for with new money they now have access to. The Italian, Portuguese and Greek government accumulated huge debts, however, the debts were able to be repaid with more borrowed money. As long as the borrowing continued, so did the spending and of course the unbalanced fiscal policies.
In Ireland and Spain, the cheap credits fueled huge housing bubbles just as it did in the US. Credit flowed, debts accumulated and the European economies became tightly intertwined. Companies began opening offices and factories across Europe. French companies borrowing from German banks, Spanish companies borrowing from French banks and so on. Business transactions became efficient, but also, the collective fate of the entire euro zone was being tied together. This borrowing path continued as long as credit was available and rightly so, was credit always available until 2008. Stimulated by a collapse in the US housing market, there was a credit crisis globally, thereby bringing borrowing to a halt everywhere. Suddenly, the Greek economy couldn't perform. It couldn't borrow for the newly created jobs and benefits. It couldn't borrow the money needed to pay its old debts. This was a huge problem, especially in Greece, but because of the unified monetary policy, it was also a problem for the euro zone.
There have been a spending spree in Europe and they borrowed far more money than they could repay. A hero was needed, somebody had to pick up the tab else every euro zone nation will suffer. Since the debtors couldn't repay, everyone turned to Germany.
Let's look at measures to be taken and in this case, AUSTERITY measures.
As the strongest and the biggest economy in Europe, Germany with no option agreed to bail out the debtor countries, but it agreed to pay the debts only if the debtor countries agreed to implement strict austerity measures to ensure the euro zone doesn't find itself in the situation it did before.
Austerity measures meant cutting spending, less borrowing, spending on what's necessary and pay back more debts. It looked like a solution and a simple one at that, but unfortunately it's not. The first point is, Nobody wants austerity. Austerity simply means cutting government spending and the government is by far the biggest spender in any economy. When the government of any nation cuts spending, it affects millions of its citizens because it has to cut the earnings of the citizens. People lose their jobs, they become hungry, thereby becoming angry and thus result in riots. Also, austerity doesn't balance a country's budget automatically. Taxes are collected based on people's earnings, so when earnings are reduced, the government collects less taxes. The debts still could not be paid. The pain is as bad that it's almost impossible to accomplish politically. In addition to that, there are large cultural differences between the euro zone.
Let's take a look at the cultural differences. The Germans are financially responsible. Since the terrible hyperinflation that was experienced after world war 1, the nation has been incredibly careful about spending and borrowing and has also been heavily inflation averse.
Generally, Germans work hard and they expect little in the line of state benefits and carefully pay all of their taxes. A large portion of the Greeks on the hand enjoy generous state benefits and refuse to pay taxes. The Greeks have a problem and this problem is the inability to collect the taxes it imposes on its citizens and this has always been the case for them. The euro was an amplifier as it just amplified it and the German view is, it doesn't work like that. If you want our money, you go by our rules.
As the debtor countries headed towards default, the whole euro zone was in danger. Even though the debtors have relatively small economies, they posed a huge threat because the European financial system is so interconnected and that is precisely because of the Euro.
Remember that the debtors borrowed from banks, investors and other government throughout Europe, so as the debtor countries get closer to default, everyone that lent them money became weaker and everyone who lent those lenders money also became weaker and so on...
A problem in one country could reverberate across the whole Eurozone thereby triggering a chain reaction of defaults. If Greece defaults, then Spain could default and so will Italy, Portugal and Ireland also France and if continued, it could spread not just in Europe but across the world.
Even if the debtor states adopted austerity measures and the bailout from Germany and the stronger nations helped them pay down their debts to avoid crisis, there's no system in place to prevent this from happening again. At this junction, we turn back to the fundamentals which are monetary and fiscal policies.
The Eurozone needs a fiscal union to match it's monetary union or maybe not. Meaning there must be a political organization with the authority to set fiscal policies within every Eurozone. It must have the power to cut spending, raise taxes and set laws. A body like this in place could prevent excessive spending and borrowing. This is an unpopular and an enormously complicated idea. It means surrendering sovereignty to a higher power, essentially a united states of Europe because without a centralized fiscal union, countries will continue to run deficits, accumulate debts, degrade the value of the euro and threaten the stability of Europe.
Can the step be taken to create a fiscal union, along with the monetary union or will the monetary union breakup thereby causing the euro to disappear?

HEBREWS IN GREECE

The concept of Hebrews being in Greece and then under the Roman Empire in the biblical scriptures is one that is quite strange for the average black individual. Almost as a myth out of a book, then of course most black individuals never realize the individuals in the scriptures are actually black. So is the concept of Hebrews being fully capable of speaking Greek and other languages, leads one to question how the scriptures were written by Hebrews and also placed in Greek as well.

Like Paul who was mistaken for an Egyptian who also spoke Greek. "And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek? Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers? But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus."

We all know the Egyptians were black, and if Paul was mistaken for an Egyptian what color would he have been? I will leave that question for all the Egyptian scholars. The higher you go in society, the more history begins to reflect oneself, until one realizes that the history is a representation of you and your people, only allowed to the eyes and ears of those deemed worthy. Fortunately I carry bloodline and share with you bits and pieces of our history in memory of a friend who passed.

Witchcraft is a powerful tool weaved on the mind through the nine windows, one can control and predict the way an individual think and behaves according to which environment they are placed in. A fake world for fake individuals, with fake dreams of fulfilling fake jobs already created years in advance for them to fill. The only problem is that the people in the fake world are real people who partake in the fake world unknowingly, talk about Alice in Wonderland for the women, and Neo in the Matrix for the men.......Welcome to the New World Order, what an achievement even if you are Hebrew you have to admire it.

Put on your brake lights
You're in the city of wonder
Ain't gon' play nice
Watch out, you might just go under
Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter, be wise
