DISTORTED MILKY WAY MYTHS
"The history of cargo cults seems to
have begun before historical records in these countries of Melanesia and
advances from materials that arrive with foreigners by canoe to sailing
vessels, freighters, and airplanes. An indigenous tradition of exchange
of goods and objects of wealth was tied to a belief that the
ancestors and deities had an influence over these things and prophesies
that they would return at some time laden with these objects of
wealth for the members of the tribes".
"Cargo cults, thus focus on efforts to
overcome what they perceive as the undue influence of the others
attracting the goods, by conducting rituals imitating behavior they have
observed among the holders of the desired wealth and presuming that
their deities and ancestors will, at last, recognize their own people
and send the cargo to them instead".

SPANISH CONQUEST OF THE AZTECS
The Sahugan natives of the Aztec empire described
eight bad omens that were believed to have occurred
10 years prior to the arrival of the Spanish from
the Gulf of Mexico. The eight omens included:
"The emperor Montezuma was said to
have consulted fortunetellers to determine the causes of these
omens; but they were unable to provide an exact explanation until
after the arrival of the Spaniards".
But even then, the Aztecs got it all wrong! At the time the
Conquistadors arrived, the Aztec priests apparently had forgot the
original mythological meaning of both "The Serpent" and the "Great
White Man", which regarding "the white man" legend was very
fatal. The Aztecs confused their Mythological story with the actual
meeting with just ordinary white-skinned humans.

Prince Philip Movement
lovely and very thoughtful Documentary Programme, "Meet the
Natives", also revealed a worshipping of a actual living "white
skinned human being". There seems to be a mix-up between the Tanna
Creation Myth and a historical colonial meeting with a white man,
who seemingly let the Tanna

story of Creation with the white-skinned Prince Philip.

How did they make you react? I was
deeply touched . . .
coming to England, the 5 Tanna Natives was mentally and spiritually very deep and very
natural in their frankly comments on "the strange modern
civilisation". What a refreshing way to look at the modern
