"Rocky terrestrial planets, perhaps like Earth, or Venus, appear to be forming or to have recently formed around a star in the Pleiades star cluster, astronomers using the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii and the Spitzer Space Telescope report. The planets appear to be the result of "monster collisions" of planets or planetary embryos."

http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/20 ... iades.html

"In Bronze Age Europe, the Celts and others associated the Pleiades with mourning and funerals because the cluster rose in the eastern night sky between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice, which was a festival devoted to the remembrance of the dead. The ancient Aztecs of Mexico and Central America based their calendar on the Pleiades."

The Celts are renowned knife men:

"The sgian-dubh (/ˌskiːən ˈduː/ skee-ən-DOO; Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [s̪kʲɪnˈt̪uh]) is a small, single-edged knife (Scottish Gaelic: sgian) worn as part of traditional Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt. Originally used for eating and preparing fruit, meat, and cutting bread and cheese, as well as serving for other more general day-to-day uses such as cutting material and protection, it is now worn as part of traditional Scottish dress tucked into the top of the kilt hose with only the upper portion of the hilt visible. The sgian-dubh is normally worn on the same side as the dominant hand."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sgian-dubh

As are the Aztecs:

"Before and during the killing, priests and audience, gathered in the plaza below, stabbed, pierced and bled themselves as auto-sacrifice"

I have Celtic blood myself and as a teenager spent many hours mapping the Pleiades as an amateur astronomer; it was something of an obsession. Pining for home?

Anagami dont came back to this world :)
Anagami in this current life. One of the skills I knew how to chose rebirths in my prior abode.
Jeez! You must be the master of the universe or something similar...at least the master of the excrata taurasene star cluster.
And.....like you....."I have come to the realization that Art is my main work."

anagami is not some unattainable state.

How do you choose where you have been?
I think Ren's meaning is that in his prior abode, one of his skills was knowing how to choose subsequent rebirths. (...)
indeed. It was a skill that was common enough in that abode.

Ancient celts may have one of the most accurate perceptions of the Pleaides and its inhabitants.

I doubt that they have any perceptions at all since they are all dead.

I trust you are, at some level, aware of how crazy this topic sounds?
"Does Master Gotama have any position at all?"

"A 'position,' Vaccha, is something that a Tathagata has done away with. What a Tathagata sees is this: 'Such is form, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is perception...such are fabrications...such is consciousness, such its origination, such its disappearance.'" - Aggi-Vacchagotta Sutta


'Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return.' - Genesis 3:19

the person in this story claims to have contacted beings in pleiades
susukhaṁ vata nibbānaṁ,
sammā­sambud­dha­desitaṁ;
asokaṁ virajaṁ khemaṁ,
yattha dukkhaṁ nirujjhatī


Oh! extinction is so very blissful,
As taught by the One Rightly Self-Awakened:
Sorrowless, stainless, secure;
Where suffering all ceases


etaṁ santaṁ etaṁ paṇītaṁ yadidaṁ sabbasaṅkhārasamatho sabbūpadhipaṭi nissaggo taṇhakkhayo virāgo nirodho nibbānaṁ

This is peaceful, this is excellent, that is: the stilling of all preparations, the relinquishment of all attachments, the destruction of craving, detachment, cessation, extinction.

it is unattainable.

When you say you are anagami, then you should also tell dharma what ends suffering. Because the very sentence has mark of self,so everyone else who is not you needs go through you since you ate the only apple there is.
