The dry floods


“In 1179 many Eastern, Christian, Jewish and Arab astrologers predicted a great planetary conjunction in September 1186, which would result in the destruction of the earth by violent winds, waters and storms.
It was seven years of deep suffering, it is said, no one doubted the end of the world, but nothing happened! ”           

A similar planetary conjunction occurred more than 300 years later…”

Il pianeta Borneo


Circa un anno fa mi sono recato nel Borneo Malese, un luogo unico nel suo genere in ambito naturalistico in cui l’ambiente naturale si presenta sotto vari e indefiniti aspetti, la sua bellezza sembra inesauribile come le sue risorse naturali. Inoltrarsi nella giungla è un’ esperienza unica e ineguagliabile in quanto si tratta di un territorio dove l’uomo è ancora in completa sintonia con la multiformità della natura, con il susseguirsi delle stagioni e degli anni.

Per la sua posizione geografica lontano da tutto e da tutti viene definito il “Mondo Perduto”

Vermi bioluminescenti, coleotteri armati e formiche zombie


Da sempre sono affascinato dall’etologia; ma soprattutto sono attratto dai comportamenti estremi che gli esseri viventi sviluppano per sopravvivere. Stando agli studi effettuati dai ricercatori, i comportamenti strani degli animali possono essere determinati sia dalla loro genetica; che acquisiti in base all’habitat in cui vivono. Ad ogni modo, che siano comportamenti istintivi o acquisiti, è ben risaputo che alcuni animali hanno dei comportamenti davvero strani e insoliti. Qui di seguito riporto tre esempi di comportamenti di insetti che mi hanno molto colpito; di cui uno sono stato anche partecipe in Nuova Zelanda.

The Goddess of Bliss and its plutonium


In the 60s the Himalaya was still considered the Shangri-La of exploration, a wild and legendary place free from celebrity that would have characterized it thanks to the mountaineering of the late twentieth century. The story I am about to tell concerns the 24th highest mountain in the world, the Nanda Devi (7,816m), which is located in India in the Great Himalaya in the northern sector of Uttar Pradesh in the domain of the Kumaum region, one of the areas with highest population density in the world.

Rambo live again in Papua New Guinea


Papua New Guinea, is the second largest island in the world after Greenland, is the realm of complexity, whose extreme environmental variety is reflected in the fragmentation of peoples, languages, mores and customs as in no other country in the world. It is an ethnic kaleidoscope, a linguistic and cultural mosaic: just over seven million inhabitants between Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya speak almost a thousand different languages, about a fifth of all those spoken on the planet. Here among prehistoric corners hidden by time and nature, something still survives from the original human being, the one who has to work daily to solve problems related to food and survival.

The summers that never arrived


At the beginning of the first century of contemporary age (1800-1816), the eartht was characterized by a great political instability.

The oldest Indian religion of non-violence


About a year ago i read a wonderful book called “Nine Lives”, which speaks of the living link between past and present in religious terms in Indian society. Hence was born my curiosity on Jainism which is considered one of the oldest religions in the world. Jainism arose from the same environments heterodox Indian classical, in the plain of the Ganges in the first century BC; and is slightly older than the Buddhism but very similar. Is defined ad as the “pre-Buddhism”, but in fact is much more demanding and extreme. Continua a leggere “The oldest Indian religion of non-violence”

Saints and secret societies of Siberia


With its eleven million square kilometers Siberia it is one of the largest territories and remote in the world. For generations, the Russians have used it as a gathering place for all kinds of religious exiles and prisoners. The first thing you have to think about the idea of Siberia is a vast and desolate place where there were very few people. The Russians have always seen it as an empty space that you found them to be filled, but unfortunately we never succeeded because it was too big! There were no roads suitable for traveling to the country; and this has contributed to the sense of isolation that the Russian community in this environment felt very cold and hostile. Siberian religious scene is particularly rooted, as there was minimal overlap of other cultures. Siberian shamanism is therefore considered by the classical scholars, the less contaminated by other cultures.
