In 2007 I had a revelation about Dan Brown. I had a rebirth revelation about Brown, not because I met him but because I read him.
After reading his bestseller The Da Vinci Code and even better his earlier book Angels and Demons. The trailer is available for Angels and Demons directed by Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks. Thus I became a part of Dan Brown’s astral family. In a rebirth sense I am also related to Tom Hanks. Why? Because he is a direct ancestor of Nancy Hanks-Lincoln, mother of Abe Lincoln.
Yes, I know it gets complex. I tried to explain it in my book Dinner With da Vinci (which I’ve made available, however this chapter is not a part of it). In order to find a person’s past life you have to in some way become a part of their current life. One reveals the other, and so it was in the case of Dan Brown.
How does one name contain another name?
And what does it tell us about its owner? I use something I call and created: name recognition pattern and it garners high marks. One is often limited to obtaining identities simply because you have not met the person in the life. So you place another person in their stead until you do. It’s not a mistake but rather an application. But before one can make and apply one life to another one must become a part of the other person’s life.
It can happen on the astral plane, mental plane or the physical plane or all three. But somewhere there must be a meeting of the minds, so to speak.
In the case of Dan Brown it turns out that we were astral twins of sorts. I was actually writing about experimental physicists I was working with at the time in 2000. in my book, had a chance to visit Fermi Lab in Switzerland and both Dan Brown and myself were writing about Da Vinci in the year 2000. I did not discover all of this until I read his book Angels and Demos, which in some ways is better than the DaVinci Code.
After getting into Dan Brown’s mind I saw the light of Dante ‘s life flashed through Dan’s life. I compared their history and their names and voila–it was a rendezvous with Italy.
I started researching and writing about this find. It was not published with my book Dinner With Da Vinci wherein I do include other famous people such as Sylvia Plath whom I identify now a biracial English writer/author: Zadie Smith, who was almost named Sylvia as the reborn Sylvia Plath, just one of many in my book.
I asked the question was Dan Brown reborn Dante Bruno? The answer was most intriguing because few know that Dante’s step father’s name was Bruno. And had he accepted it his name would be in history as Dante Bruno, instead of Dante Alighieri.
Read it for yourself. The chapter I wrote can be found here .

The end of this school year saw me jettison some things. The first to go was my prolific blogging both here and on blogcritics. I can’t say I don’t miss it. It did not pay here nor there. So I thought I would make my own money. I opened a stock account and as reporting now and again–it’s going gangbusters.
I have doubled my initial 10K startup. Correction: I did a quick and dirty look at the withdrawals from my porfolio and they come to 11K, and I still have 15K of stock left. So if I sold every position now, I would actually be ahead a whopping 15,000 since January 2013!
I was only in the market to make a little money as in interest on account that I was not getting and this bull market happened on my way to making a little interest.
Everyone is scratching their heads over this market. I am ringing the register with glee.
I know I’ve met the person I was looking for to complete my story. Things are not going smoothly or as expected so I have nothing to say about this meeting except that we met.

(CNN)--High-profile Pastor Rick Warren tweeted Thursday that his son who shot himself late last week had bought an "unregistered gun" from "someone over the internet."
"I pray he seeks God's forgiveness," wrote Warren, a best-selling author and the head of Saddleback Church, referring to whoever sold his son the gun. "I forgive him."
You know I got depression and other problems and really know that teaching in this mileu is not easy for me. I guess it’s all karma. I also had good news and maybe that’s why things seem to be falling apart. I am sure that I’ve met my soul mate. He is gorgeous and worth the wait.
He showed up on my birthday this year. He’s also Jewish can you believe that? Well, Heloise has dated almost every ethnic group including Jewish men, in the past.
More later. It’s still new and unsettled yet. But I knew it was he on first sight. He looks like he stepped right out a Roman History, ancient, book. He’s Jewish but looks Roman. He’s the one I just could not find.
The Oracle of Omaha still likes the market -- but he's hardly pounding the table.
FORTUNE -- In his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) shareholders, released Friday afternoon, Buffett says he still believes U.S. stocks will "do well." He notes that he made his first stock purchase during the bleakest part of World War II, so even if things look not so great right now, you should end up doing fine as well.
(CNN) -- An email exchange between two old Washington hands - one, a longtime journalist, and the second, a source in the Obama administration - is at the center of a political controversy Thursday as two sides read the messages differently.
I recorded it because I missed the first part. Adam had bright red hair when he was a kid. Often Jewish kids who are mixed with Gentiles will come out with red hair. So for me that was more confirmation that he was Jewish. Also the friends interviewed in the documentary Raising Adam Lanza were also Jewish.
They put the spotlight on Nancy Lanza because that is where it belongs. My take is that she was jealous of normal kids, had a death wish, and Adam had a death wish and hated the nice normal kids he encountered.

What would happen if Adolf Hitler woke up in modern-day Berlin to find that it was not occupied by Russian soldiers but instead by a vibrant, multicultural citizenry? This is the premise of the debut novel by German journalist Timur Vermes, Er Ist Wieder Da (He’s Back), which has topped Germany’s best-seller list.

If you watched "Little House on the Prairie," chances are you remember the story of Mary Ingalls.
The television show and popular book series drew on the real-life experiences of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Mary, Laura's sister, went blind as a teenager after contracting scarlet fever, according to the story. Now a team of medical researchers are raising questions about whether that's true.
As a vegetarian I have also been a fruitarian and a raw foodist and a macrobiotic and a vegan. I also fasted with stuff like garlic and lemons! Not only done everything but read everything about diets and types of diets. I am trying to incorporate more fruit in my diet and vegetables because of my high cholesterol which I have brought down quite a bit.
I know you can’t do the imbalanced nutso thing for very long. Jobs was not balanced but he was a creative genius and they are often unbalanced and don’t see what others see and see what others don’t see.
(CNN) — After learning that Ashton Kutcher had landed in the hospital trying to follow Steve Jobs’ all-fruit diet, CNN reader Sumday had just one question: “All I really wanted to know was why this diet was bad?”
Jobs first fell for extreme diets during his freshman year of college, according to Walter Isaacson‘s biography “Steve Jobs.” Jobs and his college friend Daniel Kottke became vegetarians after reading “Diet for a Small Planet.”
Then Jobs read “Mucusless Diet Healing System” by Arnold Ehret; Ehret believed in eating nothing but fruits and starchless vegetables like spinach, carrots and cucumbers. Jobs began with two-day fruit fasts, eventually going for a week or more. “I got into it in my typical nutso way,” Jobs told Isaacson.
Ehret’s fruitarian diet, also called the Eden Garden Diet or Ehretism, is often used as a type of cleanse, according to LiveStrong.com. Designed to detoxify the system, it can do more long-term harm than good.
