I recall a news media story in the 1960s that recorded a remarkable event that shocked into silence the dwindling numbers who allowed themselves to believe the propaganda of the three victorious empires who cast Adolf Hitler as ‘evil incarnate’.
A new high-resolution scan of The Last Supper gives a crystal clear look at the famous painting. Leonardo da Vinci is considered one of the finest artists and thinkers of all time. He created works that have endured for centuries, like the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, the latter of which is thought to be the greatest depiction of a Biblical scene in all western European art. In it, Jesus and his 12 disciples are eating literally Christ’s last meal, and it was painted as a mural on a wall at a Dominican monastery by the great painter in 1498, in Milan.
Although a veteran of many car brands I had not realised that my favourite marque was built by an innovative company inspired by a fellow Irishman. Since that momentous day, I have tried every model made including the BMW Seven Series; what a mistake that was.

Death and Transfiguration is neither poem nor soliloquy. The hour of midnight had long struck when my thoughts asked the question, what is it like to die? I was alone, the background to my whimsical notions was Richard Strauss’s musical-poem, “Death and Transfiguration”.
What does Gaia mean?
In Greek mythology, Gaia (/ˈɡeɪə, ˈɡaɪə/; from Ancient Greek Γαῖα, a poetical form of Γῆ Gē, “land” or “earth”), also spelled Gaea /ˈdʒiːə/, is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities.
Reincarnation has remained on the fringe of scientific inquiry for a long time. Decades ago, American astronomer and astrobiologist Carl Sagan said that there are three claims in the (parapsychology) field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study,’ with one being ‘that young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way than reincarnation.’
