WINTER in the northern hemisphere marks the annual return of a potent and ancient solar festival.
Indeed, “turnings of the sun” is an old phrase, used by both Hesiod and Homer.
The novelist Alan Furst has one of his characters nicely observe, “the day the sun is said to pause,” recalls contributor Richard Cohen in a NY Times Op-Ed:
“Pleasing, that idea as though the universe stopped for a moment to reflect, took a day off from work. One could sense it, time slowing down.”
But the cyclic work of the Mother matrix never ceases. “The real substance of the concealed (Sun) is a nucleus of Mother substance,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote in The Secret Doctrine Vol. 1, p. 290:
It is the heart and the matrix of all the living and existing Forces in our solar universe.
“It is the Kernel from which proceed to spread on their cyclic journeys all the Powers that set in action the atoms in their functional duties, and the focus within which they again meet in their SEVENTH ESSENCE every eleventh year.”
The solar cycle or solar magnetic activity cycle is the nearly periodic 11-year change in the Sun‘s activity (Wikipedia)

STUDIES have shown that many of us are so preoccupied with future expectations, we fail to see what’s right in front of us.
A well known attention experiment at Harvard showed that many people missed seeing a 200-pound gorilla walking through a small group of basketball players.
Not so for a clinically blind man, who clearly saw what he should not have seen. A surprised science writer, Andrea Gawrylewski, reporting in The Scientist, described the experiment and wondered:
“How much can you see with a non-functioning visual cortex?”
“With lesions on both sides of his visual cortex,” reports a paper published in Current Biology, “he was able to flawlessly navigate an obstacle course.”
Biologists and neurologists are still searching for the hardware (neurons) responsible for this seeming impossibility.
