The Dogon tribe of Mali way of learning and teaching.
First master the word in front of you (elementary level). Then master the word on the side of you (High school and college level). Then master the word behind you (Graduate school and beyond). So knowledge evolves around you. Like the owl that can see all around, 360 degrees. Finally after mastering the front the side and the back the dawning of the day that ushers in the final step which comes up behind you and enters you from the back, through your spinal column (33 vertebrates) and invigorates that energy, that invigorates the chakras and rises up through your crown.
Spirituality is unseen science, and science is seen spirituality. Two sides of the same coin. Our ancestors had scared science. We are all pieces of god. Like an ocean and a drop of water. Drop of water separated from the ocean. What part of the water isn't the ocean, and what part of the ocean isn't in the drop of water?
If you look at the work of Mayan Scholars such as Dr. Jose Arguelles, Carl Johan Calleman Ph.D and John Major Jenkins, all of them mentioned of how the Mayan calendar prediction of 2012 is actually the beginning of a major shift in human consciousness. To have three notable Mayan experts agreeing on the same idea certainly suggests something is going on here.
Age of the Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius is represented by man pouring water which means to serve others and water can also mean electricity. Aquarius is ruled by the opposite sign Leo which is a sign that represents the stage, games, sports, marketing, packaging, demonstration and children.
Just like the planet Mars rule over Aries, Neptune over Pisces, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. Uranus has the qualities of the unusual, the distortion, the breaking of rules, the defiance of authority, the characteristics of rebellion, the burst of inventions, the concept of flight, altruism and higher mind consciousness.
We can see that we now have many of those characteristics of Aquarius such as the use of electricity, the existence of movies, Olympics, products, advertisements and the creation of space crafts.
The sign of man pouring water signify that humans will be less egoistic and the mindset will move more towards service to others rather than service to self. As man progress further and further into the Aquarian Age, humanity will understand more of its place among the stars and think more in a universal manner.
