Something SMALL is wrong with physics if we look at the Hubble images of our universe. This and other anomalies described in the book are a firm reason to suggest a PARADIGM SHIFT, which could lead to a TOE. (Theory Of Everything)I hope you will enjoy the reading of this book. HOWEVER I also hope that you will be able to grasp the speculative logic of my "Goals of intelligent life" postulation.Why? because:If we don't feed the "have nots" and keep them in endless poverty, the STP-ROM or Global (collective) consciousness around Mother Earth, which is supposed to be the base for all our dreams and intuition, will turn into a steep negative spiral.This could be the origin of a strong global hatred and the rise of fascist leaders.

Will you rediscover my pilgrimage route? The question is addressed to the author, a 54-year old Danish architect, while under a meditation. This is the beginning of a 2000 km long pilgrimage route, which the Virgin Mary is said to have walked. THE TEACHINGS OF THE VIRGIN MARY is an account of both an inner and an outer journey with the Virgin Mary as an inner travel guide. Without any special qualifications, the author set out on a hard and fatiguing journey. The down-to-earth explorer was sorely tried and was confronted with less than friendly spiritual forces who tested and developed his commitment as a pilgrim. THE TEACHINGS OF THE VIRGIN MARY is a deeply personal report about a human, who set out on a journey to try to understand his own role in the world. The book is illustrated with the authors own maps and sketches.
