Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Here are some photos from the 22 March 2016 Brussels terrorist attacks at Maelbeek station in the Brussels subway and Zaventem international airport, described here, herehere and here. The terrorists' original target was Tihange nuclear power plant in Huy, where 11 personnel have had their security clearances revoked. In related news, Syrian government forces have retaken the ancient city of Palmyra (see earlier posts here and here).

File photo of the airport area where the blasts occurred: "An aerial image of the Brussels airport departure terminal taken in May 2015 shows clearly the areas of the terminal that where struck by the blasts. The first bomb detonated between check-in desks 6 and 7, hitting the crowd near to Starbucks. The second bomb exploded between check-in desks 8 and 9." Image Source: Alamy via Daily Mail.

Brussels Airport before two bomb blasts: "This CCTV image was taken at 7.58 am, just 25 seconds before the first of the two explosions tore through the busy passenger terminal on Tuesday ... . It shows dozens of victims completely unaware of the chaos about to unfold, queuing at Starbucks and wandering through the terminal." Image Source: Daily Mail.
