a Concentration camp in the good sense of the word. It will have legal boundaries that will protect the openminded and creative habitants from the medieval rules and traditions that prevail in the societies in this part of the world.
If you never heard about this Saudi Arabian project here is the link http://discoverneom.com/
Saudi Arabia plans to build NEOM – a megacity which will be independent of the kingdom’s “existing governmental framework”.
Is it possible that the city will be protected from the crippling rules of Islam? There must be reasons for the creation of such a megacity that will cost cost 5 billion dollars to the Saudi government and will also rely on many more billions from investor from all over the wold.
“As Saudi Arabia’s reliance on oil becomes untenable, the kingdom will need a more productive workforce —and that includes women,” says Kristin Smith Diwan, a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute.
But Why only NEOM? Why only one Megacity will get such liberties and freedoms and not the whole country? Why only a part of the population and not all Saudi men and women?
I believe it is the desire of the Saudi rulers to get a ticket into the Future without giving up their totalitarian rule and unchallenged authority over the country. And why not? Why not to try the Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor sparsity). It states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
Attracting the most bright 20% of its own population and the cream of the crop from countries with stifling traditions Saudi Arabia will let them to live in a society that supports creativity and development, and the economical growth to support the lagging majority.
The NEOM is being compared to another megacity – New York with the plans to be 10 times the size. But it doesn’t end here. I believe the Arab country, home of the Mecca, the Holiest city of the whole Islamic world, want to become a new America, a kind of the USA but mostly for the Muslims of the world.
I am not against that. The idea is not even new to me. I long wondered why every country would not create some protected areas inside their territories to let oppressed minorities in their countries have a place where they would feel secure and happy.
NEOM- New order megacity
I believe in the success of the NEOM project.
Unless leaders of other Muslim countries choose to follow the path.
Just recently watched 12 series of the “Vangelia” movie. The movie is based on the life and is about the famous Bulgarian medium and healer Baba Vanga. The film is not a documentary. Among ideas that one could find about fortune telling and mediumship there were some controversial statements from the main character that, as I assume, derive from the ignorance of the play writers and directors of the movie on the topic or from ambiguous explanations of Baba Vanga herself that she presented in different times, different situations and to different people. For example, in some cases Baba Vanga says that “Fate” exists and in other cases she concedes one can change his fate if warned. In one of episodes she describes seeing a kind of movies about souls of deceased ones being demonstrated by small spiritual beings in others she says the souls themselves are present in the room and talking to her. I feel I have to learn more documented facts about Vangelia than just to trust the story in the movie.
Later I stumbled upon an article in the Facebook about another famous psychic and medium Edgar Cayce. There was a quote of him saying “Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions”. His statements included predictions of the stock market crash of 1929 and events related to World Wars and even the warnings of untimely deaths of two American presidents.
I compared the abilities of psychics to predict exact times for some events with my general knowledge and understanding of what kind of information is available through spirits and god. Basically I say that spirits don’t know what exactly and when is going to happen in the future. But many spirits collaborating in coordinated effort to predict future may calculate the most possible scenarios of the future developments and their approximate timing. While I don’t have much trouble accepting predictions where an event is predicted with 1 year accuracy, I didn’t see how a psychic might see some more precise timing for an event like exact day, month and year.
I was puzzled and it seems to me I discovered or may be “received” a theory or true knowledge of how seeing and predicting exact times and names could work. Strangely, it includes ideas that I read in articles about Quantum theory and theory of parallel universes or multiverse.
One of ideas is that there are parallel universes and the difference between them can sometimes be in just small details and different timing – one can be ahead or behind another in time.
Generally, when we think that a medium “sees” the Future, in reality that psychic receives information of something that happened in the past in a parallel universe that is very close to and related to ours. Simply it is the one that is ahead of ours in time and is only slightly different in some details.
I also now assume that our spirits have access to information about history in other parallel universes or able to visit parallel universes themselves through eyes and bodies of the dwellers of other universes directly or via connections to their spirits.
The hypothesis I present to your attention here is just a hypothesis and I hope it has at least some value as a thought provoking reading.
Please, feel free to comment, critique or discuss it.

Kevin O’Leary, the entrepreneur and fund manager also known as “Mr. Wonderful” on ABC’s (DIS) “Shark Tank” dropped by Yahoo studios to talk about the show, venture investing and his favorite topic – money. For those of you who don’t know, “Shark Tank” is a reality series that features aspiring entrepreneurs making business presentations to a panel of potential investors. O’Leary sits in prime position and is known for his no-holds-barred, blunt, brutal approach as he quizzes entrepreneurs about the financial viability of their ideas.
“People find that hard sometimes, but my attitude about money is it’s binary – black and white. Either you make it or you lose it,” he explains. “So why lie to people about it, particularly if they are putting their own families’ assets in harm’s way, which is often the case on Shark Tank? I’d rather just say it’s a stupid idea; it’s going to zero; take it behind the barn and shoot it.”
O’Leary breaks down the secret to success on “Shark Tank” to these three elements:
1. Easy-to-explain ideas: The entrepreneur or team must be able to articulate their idea in 60 seconds or less, says O’Leary. A pitch must be very simple for the investor to understand. On Season 3, artist Steve Gadlin’s entire e-mail to apply for “Shark Tank” consisted of a whopping two sentences. “I draw stick-figure pictures of cats and sell them for ten bucks a piece… let me at ‘em.” He was looking for a $10,000 investment for a 25% stake in his “business.” The idea may have seemed simplistic, but Gadlin sold the sharks on the concept that he could whip out 25 customized cat drawings in an hour. He ended up with $25,000 for 33%.
2. Leadership and Teamwork: You have to be able to explain why you’re the only person or at least the right person to execute your business plan, explains O’Leary. On an episode of “Shark Tank” that aired in April, New York City firefighter Sal DePaola and his two business partners, who are also firefighters, appeared on the show to pitch their product – The Paint Brush Cover. The product prevents brushes from drying out when the painter goes on a break. The three had owned a painting business and so were able to articulate the process of inventing, producing and selling The Paint Brush Cover. They went in looking for $50,000 for a 10% stake. They walked out with a deal – $200,000 for 20% and a tie-up with QVC.
3. Numbers: “This is probably the most consistent thing that you find: [winners] knew their numbers,” explains O’Leary. “If you put all three together, you get the alchemy that gets the sharks interested in writing a check. If you miss out on any of those, we’ll throw you out in the street,” he says.

In season 6, inventors Alice Brooks and Bettina Chen pitched a building toy for girls called “Roominate.” Both met at Stanford University and have multiple engineering degrees. The company had already received $85,000 of KickStarter funding, had $1.7 million in sales and a retail presence. They walked out with half a million dollars for a 5% equity stake.
The world of venture investing is a tough one, explains O’Leary. Of every ten deals, two fail, six end up coasting and the last two are hits – and end up providing all the returns, he says. The only exception, however, to that principle is “Shark Tank”. O’Leary says that no matter what the product or idea is, it usually ends up being somewhat successful just by virtue of being featured on the show. Tally up the millions of dollars in free advertising from being prime time, the reruns and the follow-ups and he finds 30 to 40% of outcomes are successful.
One final piece of advice? “The truth is don’t cry for money because it never cries for you,” he says.

Soul can function as a synonym for spirit, mind, psyche or self. Yol religion can characterize soul using the following sentences (read small text at the end of the post from Creator of Yol):
Soul is a human’s consciousness that extends far beyond the physical body.
Soul is the cause of intuition and “unconscious mind”.
Soul has features and characteristics that exceed those of a human’s mind.
Soul has an energy that has something in common with electricity.
Soul emerges and develops to a degree.
Soul is not everlasting.
Soul can not reincarnate.
All organisms have souls.
Existence of soul conforms to Laws of Nature awaiting discovery.
Quotes about Soul
Everywhere and always, since its very inception, Christianity has turned the earth into a vale of tears; always it has made of life a weak, diseased thing, always it has instilled fear in man, turning him into a dual being, whose life energies are spent in the struggle between body and soul. In decrying the body as something evil, the flesh as the tempter to everything that is sinful, man has mutilated his being in the vain attempt to keep his soul pure, while his body rotted away from the injuries and tortures inflicted upon it.
EMMA GOLDMAN, Mother Earth, April 1913
What is soul? It’s like electricity – we don’t really know what it is, but it’s a force that can light a room.
Ambition is a Dead Sea fruit, and the greatest peril to the soul is that one is likely to get precisely what he is seeking.
EDWARD DAHLBERG, Alms for Oblivion
The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.
CARL JUNG, The Meaning of Psychology for Modern Man
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
JOSEPH JOUBERT, Pensées
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
Soul. The word rebounded to me, and I wondered, as I often had, what it was exactly. People talked about it all the time, but did anybody actually know? Sometimes I’d pictured it like a pilot light burning inside a person–a drop of fire from the invisible inferno people called God. Or a squashy substance, like a piece of clay or dental mold, which collected the sum of a person’s experiences–a million indentations of happiness, desperation, fear, all the small piercings of beauty we’ve ever known.
SUE MONK KIDD, The Mermaid Chair
Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them. Some minds are incapable of skepticism.
RALPH WALDO EMERSON, “Montaigne; or, the Skeptic,” Representative Men
Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form … you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul.
JOHN O’DONOHUE, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Emotions are the colors of the soul.
WM. PAUL YOUNG, The Shack
The soul is healed by being with children.
FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Idiot
There are apartments in the soul which have a glorious outlook; from whose windows you can see across the river of death, and into the shining city beyond; but how often are these neglected for the lower ones, which have earthward-looking windows.
HENRY WARD BEECHER, Life Thoughts
For all good and evil, whether in the body or in human nature, originates … in the soul, and overflows from thence, as from the head into the eyes.
The human soul is God’s treasury, out of which he coins unspeakable riches.
HENRY WARD BEECHER, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit
Music, sculpture, poetry, painting–these are glorious works; but the soul that creates them is more glorious than they. The music shall die on the passing wind, the poem may be lost in the confusion of tongues, the marble will crumble and the canvas will fade, while the soul shall be quenchless and strong, filled with a nobler melody, kindling with loftier themes, projecting images of unearthly beauty, and drinking from springs of imperishable life.
E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words

You don’t believe in the soul until you feel it straining to escape the body.
GLEN DUNCAN, A Day and a Night and a Day
Good men study to spiritualize their bodies; bad men to incarnate their souls.
BENJAMIN WHICHCOTE, Moral and Religious Aphorisms
The blackest murder is the killing of the Soul’s aspirations!
EDWIN LEIBFREED, “The Song of the Soul”
The soul’s vitality after death is proportionate to its vitality before death.
AUSTIN O’MALLEY, Keystones of Thought
The soul, like the body, acquires vigor by the exercise of all its faculties. In the midst of the world, in overcoming difficulties, in conquering selfishness, indolence, and fear–in all the occasions of duty, it employs, and reveals by employing, energies that render it efficient and robust–that broaden its scope, adjust its powers, and mature it with a rich experience.
E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words
There may be a soul of the world, there may be … a psychical side, of which we are not aware, to every atom in the universe, and the psychical side, like the moon, may show us ever but the one face, the other forever in the shadow; but, at best, this is only a conjecture, it presents no solid foundation upon which to rest a theory.
JOHN GRIER HIBBEN, The Problems of Philosophy
The soul can never be corrupted with the corruption of the body, but it is like the wind which causes the sound of the organ, and which ceases to produce a good effect when a pipe is spoilt.
LEONARDO DA VINCI, Thoughts on Art and Life
He who possesses the divine powers of the soul is a great being, be his place what it may. You may clothe him with rags, may immure him in a dungeon, may chain him to slavish tasks; but he is still great. You may shut him out of your houses; but God opens to him heavenly mansions.
WILLIAM E. CHANNING, Thoughts
Only by much searching and mining, are gold and diamonds obtained, and man can find every truth connected with his being, if he will dig deep into the mine of his soul.
JAMES ALLEN, As a Man Thinketh
My mind is incapable of conceiving such a thing as a soul. I may be in error, and man may have a soul; but I simply do not believe it. What a soul may be is beyond my understanding.
THOMAS EDISON, “Do We Live Again?”, The Illustrated London News, May 3, 1924
Why do you hasten to remove anything which hurts your eye, while if something affects your soul you postpone the cure until next year?
Let us duly learn to prize and value our Souls: Is the body such a valuable piece, what then is the Soul? The body is but a husk of shell, the Soul is the kernel; the body is but the cask, the Soul is the precious liquor contained in it; the body is but the cabinet, the Soul is the jewel; the body is but the dwelling, the Soul the inhabitant.
WELLINS CALCOTT, Thoughts Moral and Divine
Human Soul. Quotes about Soul and Spirit.
Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.” Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.” Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.” For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, 1923
I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam: I looked into the soul of another boy.
From Shaheen Hajigil, creator of Yol:
Dear follower or reader. Do you agree or disagree with quotes aboul Soul? In Yol religion I say to my followers that all souls or many souls connected to each other make one god. I don’t call it universal soul as I don’t have any message from god about it’s (universal Soul) existence.
Universal god is also outside of my message. There is infinite number of universes in the limitless Cosmos. There is infinite number of populated planets. Each one of the planets have it’s own god- god that consists of many souls connected to each other (only type of god recognised in Yol religion) . Two populated planets can be very close to each other. If their intelligent dwellers can visit each other and have created a community then they may have their two separate gods (sets of multiple souls) fused into one larger and communicating soul connection.
Other than this method Yol religion doesn’t know how two sides may join each other without first communicating and exchanging information using conscious mind.
Thank you for reading Yol’s view about souls and other soul quotes.

““My personal theology is described in the Gifford lectures that I gave at Aberdeen in Scotland in 1985, published under the title, Infinite In All Directions. Here is a brief summary of my thinking. The universe shows evidence of the operations of mind on three levels. The first level is elementary physical processes, as we see them when we study atoms in the laboratory. The second level is our direct human experience of our own consciousness. The third level is the universe as a whole. Atoms in the laboratory are weird stuff, behaving like active agents rather than inert substances. They make unpredictable choices between alternative possibilities according to the laws of quantum mechanics. It appears that mind, as manifested by the capacity to make choices, is to some extent inherent in every atom. The universe as a whole is also weird, with laws of nature that make it hospitable to the growth of mind. I do not make any clear distinction between mind and God. God is what mind becomes when it has passed beyond the scale of our comprehension. God may be either a world-soul or a collection of world-souls. So I am thinking that atoms and humans and God may have minds that differ in degree but not in kind. We stand, in a manner of speaking, midway between the unpredictability of atoms and the unpredictability of God. Atoms are small pieces of our mental apparatus, and we are small pieces of God’s mental apparatus. Our minds may receive inputs equally from atoms and from God. This view of our place in the cosmos may not be true, but it is compatible with the active nature of atoms as revealed in the experiments of modern physics. I don’t say that this personal theology is supported or proved by scientific evidence. I only say that it is consistent with scientific evidence.”

Infinite In All Directions is a book on a wide range of subjects, including history,philosophy, research, technology, the origin of life and eschatology, by theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson. Published in 1988, this book is based on the author’s Gifford Lectures delivered in Aberdeen in 1985. Infinite in All Directions can roughly be summarized as a treatise on the universe and humanity’s role and its responsibilities.
“My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration.
I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know it exists.”
Nikola Tesla was spiritual and positive.
Another quote from famous inventor Nikola Tesla is “There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is born. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call “soul” or “spirit,” is nothing more than the sum of the functioning of the body. When this functioning ceases, the “soul” or the “spirit” ceases likewise.”
While I don’t agree fully with the last quote, importance of citing Nikola Tesla’s words about intangible energy or source of power is in the similarities with the knowledge that author of this website received from god.
I recommend reading more about life of Nikola Tesla to my readers and hopefully followers.
In “Tesla: Man Out of Time” book, Margaret Cheney explores the brilliant and prescient mind of one of the twentieth century’s greatest scientists and inventors. Called a madman by his enemies, a genius by others, and an enigma by nearly everyone, Nikola Tesla was, without a doubt, a trailblazing inventor who created astonishing, sometimes world-transforming devices that were virtually without theoretical precedent. Tesla not only discovered the rotating magnetic field — the basis of most alternating-current machinery — but also introduced us to the fundamentals of robotics, computers, and missile science. Almost supernaturally gifted, unfailingly flamboyant and neurotic, Tesla was troubled by an array of compulsions and phobias and was fond of extravagant, visionary experimentations. He was also a popular man-about-town, admired by men as diverse as Mark Twain and George Westinghouse, and adored by scores of society beauties.
From Tesla’s childhood in Yugoslavia to his death in New York in the 1940s, Cheney paints a compelling human portrait and chronicles a lifetime of discoveries that radically altered — and continue to alter — the world in which we live. Tesla: Man Out of Time is an in-depth look at the seminal accomplishments of a scientific wizard and a thoughtful examination of the obsessions and eccentricities of the man behind the science.
Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 — 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, and futurist. He was an important contributor to the use of commercial electricity, and is best known for developing the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system. His many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were based on the theories of electromagnetic technology discovered by Michael Faraday. Tesla’s patents and theoretical work also formed the basis of wireless communication and the radio.
Electromechanical devices and principles developed by Nikola Tesla:
Various devices that use rotating magnetic fields (1882)
The Induction motor, rotary transformers, and “high” frequency alternators
The Tesla coil, his magnifying transmitter, and other means for increasing the intensity of electrical oscillations (including condenser discharge transformations and the Tesla oscillators)
Alternating current long-distance electrical transmission system (1888) and other methods and devices for power transmission
Systems for wireless communication (prior art for the invention of radio) and radio frequency oscillators
Robotics and the electronic logic gate
Electrotherapy Tesla currents
Wireless transfer of electricity and the Tesla effect
Tesla impedance phenomena
Tesla electro-static field, Tesla principle, Bifilar coil, Telegeodynamics
Tesla insulation, Tesla impulses, Tesla frequencies,
