The first thing you can imagine thinking of Christmas Island, is a place with cold temperatures as Lapland, with expanses of ice and vast uninhabited areas. Characterized by long nights with the bitter cold of the Arctic, populated by very friendly and nice peoples, surrounded by deep forests populated by wild animals.
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.

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.

At the beginning of the first century of contemporary age (1800-1816), the eartht was characterized by a great political instability. While Europe was slowly recovering from the Napoleonic wars that had been completed only a year earlier, in Latin America the Spanish Independence War made most of the colonies independent of Spain. In Europe after years of desperation and destruction people he expected better times, but the coming summer was rainy and cold, crops did not produce fruits hunger and disease were the consequences.
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”
Nel nord-ovest del Messico, tra le montagne della Sierra Madre e l’oceano Pacifico, c’è lo stato di Sinaloa che è conosciuto come la “culla del narcotraffico”. La sua capitale dello stato, Culiacán, è la capitale della droga di tutto il paese. Una media di un paio di decessi per droga sono segnalati ogni giorno, e la violenza della droga tra polizia e bande di narcotrafficanti rivali è comune in città.
In 1896 while Henry Ford built his first car and in Canada the famous gold rush began in the Klondike region, the United States was hit by a wave of tales of mysterious airships that according to many eyewitnesses plowed the sky above cities and farms. In the link below a background music suitable for reading this post, taken from the soundtrack of a science fiction classic ” The Day the Earth Stood Still“:
Il 7 agosto del 1947, sballottata dalle onde che s’infrangevano sugli scogli, una zattera di legno di balsa e di banbù urtò la barriera corallina che proteggeva la quieta laguna di Raroria, una sperduta isoletta dell’arcipelago delle Marchesi, nel bel mezzo dell’oceano Pacifico.

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.
Forse non tutti sanno che sulla terra esistono ancora poche etnie che non hanno mai avuto contatti con la società civilizzata. Esempi di queste tribù si trovano in quattro continenti: Asia, Oceania, America settentrionale e America meridionale. Tali gruppi umani, pur essendo la loro conoscenza di indubbio interesse antropologico, non vengono contattati dagli studiosi per scelta di questi ultimi: potrebbero infatti contagiare gli indigeni con virus per i quali il loro sistema immunitario non è preparato e provocarne l’estinzione.
This territory is among the least impenetrable on the planet and extremely dangerous. It is a thick jungle where there are no roads to go; it swarms with insects, dangerous animals and almost everyone should stay away from it just for these reasons. If you are looking for adventure, you have to look elsewhere! It is also frequented by paramilitary armies, drug traffickers, illegal migrants, indigenous tribes and everyone could be adverse!
