    that is a mention of it in the bible.

(I guess I can use google) hmm...something about old married women sitting around telling stories. This is not a very satisfying answer (since this just reuses the words). I presumed everyone sat around telling stories.
    It means gossip.

    The wives were supposedly the source of tales and kept supposed "truisms" alive by oral tradition and sayings long after they'd been proven phony or faulty or mistaken.

    Its not the wives that are old, its the tale, the wives are the medium for the message.

    And people think that Christianity is implausible!

    The council of nicea was nothing like that, plus free masonry could be linked to a number of blood feuds between betrayed and annihilated crusaders (the templars included) who swore revenge or "death to kings and priests" but that's shady, seriously so, and those groups have all undergone their own reinventions with each generation, inaccuracy like that would cast doubts on anything else that's said there but its interesting that someone would want a single metanarrative governing all things and that metanarrative would be largely optimistic, ie mankind is good, mankind survives, primary bonds between planet and people are affirmative, there is an essential unity only threatened by shady "others" descended from nothing less than an "alien other".

    Jung would've had fun with that, like he did with alchemy and theosophy.

    Marxism and judeao-christianity are just more plausible to me as explanations for human history, although I do love the stories of inexplicable archeological discoveries and pre-historic uber civilisations, all that odd stuff is very diverting in the small hours of the morning.

    Tesla did have theories about the global grid, electrical fields and lay lines which was interesting however and I have wondered about the monumental spires appearing in Ireland north and south or across Europe but it could as easily be US defence screen related as anything else, certainly not a spiritual or mind control experiment, isnt there something about hexagonals and basic strategy? Or the number of fronts to fight on with connections for supply etc.? I thought so anyway.
