COFFEE IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE THAT OVERCOMES CULTURAL BARRIERS

COFFEE IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE THAT OVERCOMES CULTURAL BARRIERS

Coffee is a universal language that overcomes cultural barriers: a hot cup can unite people from every corner of the world.

I take the cue from this quote to confirm how coffee here has given me the opportunity to communicate with people living in areas hitherto unknown to me.

Tomislav keeps going on to update me about his project, remember I told you about his comics, but also about the photos of his coffees that he never fails to send me?

I am very grateful to him and thanks to him I discovered that in Temisvar there is a statue dedicated to Romulus and Remus.

These are his coffees!
Turkish coffee in Subotica and ‘morning coffee’ with candies from Macedonia as Tomislav called it.

Il caffè è un linguaggio universale che supera le barriere culturali: una tazza calda può unire persone provenienti da ogni angolo del mondo.Il caffè è un linguaggio universale che supera le barriere culturali: una tazza calda può unire persone provenienti da ogni angolo del mondo.

Lela constantly teaches me about her Georgia, and through her love of Italy she uncovers many interesting crossovers, such as L’Antica Trattoria Toscana and Georgiana

What better combination than food?

Speaking of food, Lela described their cheese to me: Sulguni სულგუნი, სულუგუნი which comes from the Samegrelo region and is reminiscent of our mozzarella. Do you know it?

I believe that being able to chat about any subject and listen to life’s monents, interests, and those little things that simply make up the days is absolutely interesting and instructive.

The small differences, nuances, languages, traditions, environments, which are a heritage to be preserved and passed on.

Have you ever met, known, discovered people through the ‘bridge’ represented by coffee?

A hot cup can unite people from every corner of the world.

Or perhaps your point of sharing has been different.

Whatever corner of the world you come from, feel welcome and free to tell!

GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

One year ago, precisely on July 6, 2022, an explosion destroyed the Georgia Guidestones l and to date no guilty has been found.

The Georgia Guidestones were a granite monument hewn in 1980 in an area that for the Cherokee people is Al-yeh-li A lo-Hee which translates to “center of the world,”  on Elberton territory, more precisely.

For years the Guidestones have been such a tourist attraction that they have earned the nickname America’s Stonehenge

Well, this is an undoubted exaggeration, but I speculate that the Guidestones constituted an excellent calling card for a locality that carries the slogan “The Granite Capital of the World.” on its website.

A monolith of about 119 tons is certainly remarkable.

The reference to Stonehenge is due to some special features including, for example, the placement of the four large outward-facing vertical blocks that were oriented to the limits of the moon’s migration during the course of the year.

An oblique hole at eye level allowed the pole star to be visible at all times, symbolizing constancy and orientation with the forces of nature.

And a slit in the center of the stone formed a “window” that aligned with the positions of the rising sun at the summer and winter solstices and equinox so that the midday sun shone to indicate noon on a curved line.

The creators intended the stones to function as a compass, calendar, and clock.

But what most connoted the Guidestones was the message proclaimed on the monument in 12 languages, including archaic languages such as Sanskrit, Babylonian cuneiform, Egyptian hieroglyphics and classical Greek, as well as English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish and Swahili.

The text consisted of ten points, ten tips, ten guides for the preservation of mankind and future generations.

Keep humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

Guide reproduction wisely, improving fitness and diversity.

Unite humanity with a “living” new language.

Rule Passion, Trust, Tradition and all things with tempered reason.

Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Let all nations rule internally, resolving external disputes in a world court.

Avoid petty laws and useless officials.

Balance personal rights with social duties.

Prize Truth Beauty and Love seeking harmony with the infinite.

Be not a cancer on the earth. Leave room for nature. Leave room for nature.

Even Agent Smith’s monologue defines mankind as a cancer in the 1999 film The Matrix

In general, these are concepts that recur while remaining ever relevant and lend themselves to interpretation according to the reader’s point of view.

The only specific indication is the first one.

When it was carved, the world population was well over four billion people.

 

Who could have thought to write such a thing then?

The story described by the Elberton Granite Finishing Corporation itself explains that the patron was “a mysterious group of sponsors” represented by one man: Mr. Christian, who introduced himself as R.C. Christian.

Message and mystery for mankind

that was the slogan on the explanatory brochure.

 

Mr. Christian said only that this monument had been planned for years and that the ten “guides” for the preservation of man and the earth had been carefully formulated as a moralistic appeal to all peoples regardless of nationality, religion or politics.

Guidelines that were defined as “applicable to life.”

Until May 2022 when a senator included among her campaign points the demolition of the Guidestones, or rather, the Satanic Guidestones. 

Kandiss Taylor also noted a particular coordination with respect to the placement of the Guidestones as explained in this May 3, 2022 tweet

On July 6 he then thanked God again via tweet

Video from a surveillance camera shows the moment of destruction:

 

 

The remains have been removed for security reasons.

There are those who speak of reconstruction and those who inflame controversy and theories.


What will be the truth?
We wait to be enlightened …

Meanwhile, the Elberton Granite Museum offers an older story.  🙂
