IQUE IQ Intelligence quotient
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
"IQ" redirects here. For other uses, see IQ (disambiguation).
Intelligence quotient
Diagnostics
An example of one kind of IQ test item, modeled after items in the Raven's Progressive Matrices test.
An intelligence quotient, or IQ, is a score derived from one of several standardized tests designed to assess intelligence. The abbreviation "IQ" comes from the German term Intelligenz-Quotient, originally coined by psychologist William Stern. When modern IQ tests are devised, the mean (average) score within an age group is set to 100 and the standard deviation (SD) almost always to 15, although this was not always so historically.[1] Thus, the intention is that approximately 95% of the population scores within two SDs of the mean, i.e. has an IQ between 70 and 130.
Politique (French pronunciation:[pɔliti k]) is a term that was used during the sixteenth and seventeenth century Wars of Religion, to describe moderates of both religious faiths (Huguenots and Catholics) who held that only the restoration of a strong monarchy could save France from total collapse. It frequently included a pejorative connotation of moral or religious indifference. The term gained great currency after 1568 with the appearance of radical Catholic Leagues calling for the eradication of Protestantism in France, and by 1588 the politiques were seen by detractors as an organized group, and treated as worse than heretics.

Colossians 1:17
King James Version (KJV)

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

The name Byblos is Greek; papyrus received its early Greek name (byblos, byblinos) from its being exported to the Aegean through Byblos. Hence the English word Bible is derived from byblos as "the (papyrus) book."[3] The city's Canaanite/Phoenician name "GB'L" derived from "gb", meaning well or origin, and El the supreme god of Byblos's pantheon. The present day city is now known by the Arabic name Jubayl or Jbeil (جب&#1 610;ل), a direct descendant of the Canaanite name.

(distance of a particular galaxy)/(that galaxys velocity)=(time)

or

4.6 x 10^26 cm / 1 x 10^9 cm/sec = 4.6 x 10^17 sec

This equation, equaling 4.6 x 10^17 seconds, comes out to be approximately fifteen billion years. This calculation is almost exactly the same for every galaxy that can be studied. However, because of the uncertainties of the measurements produced by these equations, only a rough estimate of the true age of the universe can be fashioned. While finding the age of the universe is a complicated process, the achievement of this knowledge represents a critical step in our understanding.

Rock of the ages ,Isle Royale USA/ Rennes Roazhon FRANCE...48th degree Balance

Isle Royale was given to the United States by the 1783 treaty with Great Britain, but the British remained in control until after the War of 1812, and the Ojibwapeoples considered the island to be their territory. The Ojibwas ceded the island to the U.S. in the 1842 Treaty of La Pointe, with the Grand Portage Bandunaware that neither they nor Isle Royale were in British territory. With the clarification to the Ojibwas of the 1842 Webster–Ashburton Treaty that was signed before the Treaty of La Pointe, the Ojibwas re-affirmed the 1842 Treaty of La Pointe in the 1844 Isle Royale Agreement, with the Grand Portage Band signing the agreement as an addendum to the 1842 treaty----------

psalm 117

 There are 1189 chapters in the Bible. That means that the middle chapter is the 595th chapter, Psalm 117. What about the middle verse? There are 31,174 verses in the Bible. Therefore, the middle verses are the 15,587th and 15,588th. Interestingly enough, those verses are verses 8 and 9 in Psalm 118. Also, the notation for verse 9 in Psalm 118 is Psalms 118:9, which is the same number as the total number of chapters in the Bible, 1189.

Psalm 46
The 7th verse repeated as the 11th.

King James Version (KJV)46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Lunar eclipses in bible
Because total lunar eclipses often appear red, people sometimes call a 
totally eclipsed moon a “blood moon.” Therefore, Biltz suggests that 
these eclipses are a fulfillment of the prophecy in Joel 2:31 of the 
sun being darkened and the moon turning to blood and suggests that they 
may presage the Lord’s return.
The moon passed through the center of the Earth's shadow
A total lunar eclipse took place on April 4, 1996.
Total Lunar Eclipse December 10,   2011
A total lunar eclipse will take place on April 4, 2015, the first of 
two total lunar eclipses in 2015. Totality will last only 4 minutes and 
43 seconds.

The Ascension of Jesus (anglicized from the Vulgate Latin Acts 1:9-11 
section title: Ascensio Iesu) is the Christian teaching found in the 
New Testament that the resurrected Jesus was taken up to heaven in his 
resurrected body, in the presence of eleven of his apostles, occurring 
40 days after the resurrection. In the biblical narrative, an angel 
tells the watching disciples that Jesus' second coming will take place 
in the same manner as his ascension

Many of the dimensions of The Great Pyramid have a perfect relationship to many astronomical measurements which Western Man has, apparently, only re-discovered. Most of The Great Pyramid's astronomicaldimensions relate to the Sun (and light!) which, according to the ancient Egyptians, was a symbol of God. God, from the most ancient of times, has always been symbolized by a star. Our Sun is a star. Many passages in Matthew's gospel in the New Testament, although very deeply veiled in metaphor, refer (also) to the Sun as it appears to transit through the ancient astrological signs.In ancient times astrology and astronomy were the same science. After the invention of the lens, the astrological model of the universe began to erode. Astrology with all of its transcendent mythology was pushed to the side by a new astronomy created by stargazers with technology. Ever since that time Western Man has been lost in space, disconnected from the Earth and without a viable creation myth.The information presented in this archive provides a view into the ancient past and touches upon the Ancient Wisdom which has been abandoned and forgotten by the conventional modern scientific method. An understanding of this material will lead you to "the crack between the worlds", the place where physics distort into divine chaos. A place where science fears to tread... the dwelling place of God.
By far more than just a twinkling, it was the entire solar system which announced the birth of Jesus Christ of the lineage of King David, and the change of the astrological age from Aries to Pisces and the start of a new Great Year of Plato, or a Great Year of Precession of the Equinox (25,920 years in length,A 7 11)The celestial presentation evolved during a 10 day period.(Julian day 1719654.8333 to1719664.8333). The entire phenomenon contains (in astrological symbolism); three "mystic rectangles", a "Star of David", a "Seal of Solomon", a "Grand Sextile", a "Grand Cross" and two five pointed star configurations .

Michel Nostradamus

p. 43

loquacity, that all things whatsoever proceed from the divine power of the great eternal Deity from whom all goodness emanates. Further, my son, although I have inserted the name of prophet, I do not desire to assume a title of so high sublimity at the present moment. For he who "Propheta dicitur hodie, olim vocabatur videns;" 1 for, strictly speaking, my son, a prophet is one who sees things remote from the knowledge of all mankind. Or, to put the case; to the prophet, by means of the perfect light of prophecy, there he opened up very manifestly divine things as well as human; which cannot come about, seeing that the effects of future prediction extend to such remote periods. Now, the secrets of God are incomprehensible, and their efficient virtue belongs to a sphere far remote from natural knowledge; for, deriving their immediate origin from the free will, things set in motion causes that of themselves could never attract such attention as could make them recognized, either by human augury, or by any other knowledge of occult power; it is a thing comprised only within the concavity of heaven itself, from the present fact of all eternity, which comes in itself to embrace all time.

Still, by the means of some eternal power, by an epileptic Herculean agitation, the causes by the celestial movement become known. I do not say, my son, in order that you may fully understand me, that the knowledge of this matter cannot yet impress itself upon thy feeble brain, that very remote future causes may not come within the cognizance of a reasonable being; if they are, notwithstanding, purely the creation of the intellectual soul of things present, future things are not by any means too hidden or concealed. But the perfect knowledge of causes cannot be acquired without divine inspiration; since all prophetic inspiration derives its

The Shifting of the Earth's Poles Has Begun as Predicted by Edgar Cayce in 1936

"Question: What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is to take place in the earth in the year 2,000 to 2,001 A.D.? Answer: When there is a shifting of the poles; or a new cycle begins."(826-8 given August 11, 1936)

For the Master, Jesus, even the Christ, is the pattern for every man in the earth, whether he be Gentile or Jew, Parthenian or Greek. For all have the pattern, whether they call on that name or not; but there is no other name given under heaven whereby men may be saved from themselves.
Edgar Cayce Reading 3528-1 (171-1)

The next reference to the year , a month later, came in a reading that continued a discussion of the Egyptian priest Ra-Ta (aka Ra). The priest was responsible for the design of the Great Pyramid, which mapped out time until the end of this age, when the Earth will change again. According to Cayce, the soul of Jesus, the master, incarnated at the time of Ra and Hermes, so this gives rise to the allusion of the priest returning at the end of the age, 1998, as indicated by the pyramid.

Reading 294-151 given July 29, 1932

(Continuance of Egyptian experience as Ra-Ta)

Yes, we have the information that has been given respecting the activities of Ra-Ta in the Egyptian experience.

... Hence there began the first preparation for what has later become that called , that was to be the presentation of that which had been gained by these peoples through the activities of Ra-Ta, who NOW was known as Ra; ...[Ra] brought the idea of the preservation of these, not only for those in the present but for the generations that were to come in the experiences ... throughout that period, until the were to come again in the earth's position ...

Then began the of the pyramid and the building of same,...[the task of] building, as we find, lasted for a period of what is termed now as one hundred years. It was formed according to that which had been worked out by Ra-Ta ... as this priest may develop himself to be in that position, to be in the capacity of a LIBERATOR of the world in its relationships to individuals in those periods to come; for he must enter again at that period, or in 1998.

Cayce's prediction of a pole shift occurred in 1998. According to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, in 1998 something changed the Earth's gravitational field which moved the magnetic poles closer together. The NASA article explained that as the ice on the poles melted, ocean currents moved water toward the equator, which factors researchers believe to be partly responsible, in conjunction with shifts in atmospheric patterns, for this ongoing shift in the Earth's magnetic field. This NASA finding affirms Cayce's prediction of a pole shift

On the bottom of his studies for the painting, Dalí explained its inspiration: "In the first place, in 1950, I had a 'cosmic dream' in which I saw this image in colour and which in my dream represented the 'nucleus of the atom.' This nucleus later took on a metaphysical sense; I considered it 'the very unity of the universe,' the Christ!"
In order to create the figure of Christ,

Dalí's paintings Gala looking at the Mediterranean Sea which at a distance of 20 meters is transformed into the portrait of Abraham Lincoln (Homage to Rothko), and the original Lincoln in Dalivision lithographs produced from these paintings were some of the first examples of the photomosaic artistic approach by a recognized artist. "The Recognition of Faces," by Leon Harmon (Scientific American, November 1973) was the first published work on photomosaic concepts. Harmon was a Bell Labs researcher who had been developing this concept, and the first image in this article was the well recognized portrait of Abraham Lincoln from the U.S. five dollar bill made from a collection of solid gray mosaics.Dalí began his first painting that led to Lincoln in Dalivision in 1974 and finished the version that would be used for Lincoln in Dalivision in 1976. Harmon's Lincoln mosaic was the basis for all of Dalí's Lincoln photomosaics, which is evident by comparing the solid gray mosaics from Harmon's paper and the final works of art by Dalí.

"Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man" by Salvador Dali (1943)

In this painting Salvador Dali gives us a large egg-shaped globe of the world out of which a man is struggling to "hatch". This "new man" is coming out of North America - the United States. There is blood running out of the crack in the egg and the new man's hand has England firmly in its grasp. In the foreground two figures are watching; one an adult the other a small child. The adult, of indeterminate sex, is drawing the child's attention by pointing at the new man being birthed. The child is standing as if afraid - both hiding behind and holding on to the adult's knees. The imagery here is fairly clear. America is emerging as the major force in the world. This new power is at the cost of some blood (World War II). The fate of England is in America's hands.

I'm not sure what significance can be drawn from the disproportionately large sizes of Africa and South America on the globe. The child - though much smaller than the adult - casts a shadow much larger than the adult's. I get the impression that Salvador Dali is saying, "This is what you will have to deal with." And in a tone that is not altogether reassuring.

The speeches of Lake Leman will become angered,

(Reuters)- Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc settled with Freddie Mac a $1.2 billion claim, freeing up millions of dollars which will be available for distribution to the bank's creditors.

Under the settlement, Lehman will make a one-time cash payment of $767 million to Freddie Mac, Lehman said in a court filing on Wednesday.

The dispute stems from two loans extended to Lehman by Freddie Mac in the months before the bank filed for bankruptcy. Lehman was scheduled to repay the loan on September 15, 2008, the day it filed for the biggest-ever bankruptcy.

Lehman had set aside $1.2 billion to cover the claim as a general unsecured claim, but Freddie Mac argued that the claim should get priority status.

A priority claim would have allowed the government-controlled mortgage agency to be paid before several other creditors.

Once Wall Street's fourth-largest investment bank, Lehman's bankruptcy was a major trigger for the 2008 global financial crisis.

Lehman emerged from Chapter 11 in March 2012 under a plan that could eventually return $65 billion to creditors. The company is winding down, a process expected to take a few years.

The exact date of Gregory's birth is uncertain, but is usually estimated to be around the year 540, in the city of Rome. His parents named him Gregorius, which according to Aelfric in An Homily on the Birth-Day of S. Gregory, "... is a Greek Name, which signifies in the Latin Tongue Vigilantius, that is in English, Watchful...."Besides his mother, two of Gregory's aunts have been canonised, Gordianus's two sisters, Tarsilla and Æmiliana, so that John the Deacon speaks of his education as being that of a saint among saints.

Century 4 Quatrain 31
The moon, in the middle of the night over the high mountain,
the young wise man alone with his brain has seen it.Invited by his disciples to become immortal,his eyes to the south, his hands on his breast, his body in the fire.

La Lune au plain de nuict sur le haut mont,
Le nouveau sophe d'un seul cerveau l'a veu:
Par ses disciples estre immortel semond,

St Macarius
Macarius was born in Upper Egypt. A late tradition places his birthplace in the village of Shabsheer (Shanshour), in Al Minufiyah Governorate, Egypt around 300 A.D. At some point before his pursuit of asceticism, Macarius made his living smuggling niter in the vicinity of Nitria, a vocation which taught him how to survive in and travel across the wastes in that area.
One of St. Macarius’ great features was “wisdom”. His friends and close kin used to call him “Pidar Yougiron” which meant the “old young man” or “the young man with the elders’ wisdom.” At the wish of his parents he entered into marriage, but was soon widowed.Shortly after, his parents departed as well. Macarius subsequently distributed all his money among the poor and needy. He found a teacher in an experienced Elder, who lived in the desert not far from the village. The Elder accepted the youth, guided him in the spiritual science of watchfulness, fasting and prayer, and taught him the handicraft of weaving baskets.Seeing his virtues, the people of his village brought him to the bishop of Ashmoun who ordained him priest.His feast days are 1/15 and 1/19, and 4/5

When the dead come out of their graves.

Century 4 Quatrain 25
Lofty bodies endlessly visible to the eye,
Through these reasons they will come to obscure:
Body, forehead included, sense and head invisible,
Diminishing the sacred prayers.

Century 4 Quatrain 31
The moon, in the middle of the night over the high mountain,
the young wise man alone with his brain has seen it.
Invited by his disciples to become immortal,his eyes to the south,
his hands on his breast, his body in the fire.

One of St. Macarius’ great features was “wisdom”. His friends and close kin used to call him “Pidar Yougiron” which meant the “old young man” or “the young man with the elders’ wisdom.” young man with the elders’ wisdom.”
