Rubik's Cube Turns 40

Did you ever play with a Rubik's Cube? My children each had one ... so I gave it a few tries back in the day, completing the three-dimensional puzzle most of the time - or just walking away as one of my daughters finish it for me.

Time passed and a new generation was born ... Two years ago, my then 14 year old grandson, Michael, was proud to show me how he could complete the Rubik's Cube quickly - much like the man in the video below - no matter how you originally presented it to him. Twist ... twist ... turn ... turn ... several times rapidly and Michael was done as if in a contest with friends. As I sat there in awe, once again this affirmed to me that the brains of today's children are programmed differently than those of older generations. This relates to the careers and challenges they would experience as they became adults ... or Michael is just a genius with his 4.0+ average today as a sophomore in high school and the star athlete (proud grandma moment).

The colorful, cubed puzzle has become synonymous with '80s pop culture, but the Rubik's Cube actually was created in the '70s by a Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture, Erno Rubik. Rubik's Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle.

First Solar Eclipse Of 2014 Will Transform Sun Into 'Ring Of Fire'   Huffington Post - April 27, 2014

The Pacific Ring of Fire certainly has been active with accelerating earthquake activity over the past two months. Many will question whether something "Earth shattering" will happen in these eclipse energies. I just see more of the same - not "The Big One" most scientists and intuitives are projecting.

Speaking of earthquakes ...


Sunday, I watched an H2 special called "Inside the Volcano" posted below. I was especially interested in Santorini due to ongoing earthquake activity in that region in recent years. Will Santorini, classically the volcano Thera, erupt again in our timeline? Plato linked Thera to Atlantis. Many people have projected the rise of Atlantis at the end of the hologram.

Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera. The island is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thera eruption), which occurred some 3600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. Unlike other ancient civilizations that flourished in that timeline, the Minoans were a peaceful seafaring people with a highly advanced culture ... until Thera erupted 3600 years ago. Their history would take us to the ancient Greece program.
