It's almost summer, and with that comes the longest day of the year - June 20th, the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, and people are marking the solstice with events around the world, starting this weekend. On that day, the sun moves into the sign of Cancer, which seems very important in 2012.
2012 is almost half over. Has the time passed quickly for you? In our electromagnetic consciousness grid - magnetics are decreasing while frequency is increasing giving the illusion of time accelerating, when in truth, it is slowing down to zero point. What do you predict for the summer of 2012?

The words "El Castillo" took me to El Castillo - The Temple of Kukulkan - which takes us to Z as Quetzalcoatl and the blogs below. The cave, of course, is a symbolic reference to the mind - human and collective unconscious.

The El Castillo Cave in Spain -- The refined dating shows these paintings to be far older than anyone thought. Red dots, hand stencils and animal figures represent the oldest examples yet found of cave art in Europe. The symbols on the walls at 11 Spanish locations, including the World Heritage sites of Altamira, El Castillo and Tito Bustillo have long been recognized for their antiquity. But researchers have now used refined dating techniques to get a more accurate determination of their ages. One motif - a faint red dot - is said to be more than 40,000 years old.
New dating method shows cave art is older: Did Neanderthals do it? MSNBC - June 14, 2012
When archaeologists tried out a new technique to determine the age of Spain's most famous Paleolithic cave paintings, they were surprised to discover that the paintings were thousands of years older than previously thought - so old that it's conceivable they were painted by Neanderthals. The technique just might change the way we think about the paintings, and the way we think about our long-extinct, long-maligned Neanderthal cousins as well.
Hand stencils and the outlines of animals dominate "The Panel of Hands" in Spain's El Castillo cave. One of the stencils has been dated to earlier than 37,300 years ago, and a red disk goes back at least 40,800 years, making them the oldest cave paintings in Europe.
The "Corredor de los Puntos" lies within Spain's El Castillo cave. Red disks here have been dated to between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago, and elsewhere in the cave to 40,800 years ago, making them examples of Europe's earliest cave art.
