Feb. 21st. 2013 " Water: The Primary Excitant" by Michael Grady. I.S.E. PDF Print E-mail

At the absolute moment of creation ex nihilo (out of nothing), excidents resulted from the ontological explosion caused by a "may-be" response made by every human person.

The primary excident, that which we, and the Earth are made of in precisely given quantities of percentage, is water.

Along with molecules to monkeys, water stands out as the primary subpersonal (partial) being, as developed by God's infinitely loving activity of compassion on us human maybe-sayers.

An original presentation by Michael Grady, who will also give a presentation on how to activate water from a passive to more active state, which harkens back to the pristine beginning and memory of creation ex aliquo (existence).

About the presenter :

He has been an export consultant for American food products exporting American wild caught fish to Asia and Eastern Europe. Mike has spent some time in Denmark, and is a recent grandfather to Ingrid, 8 months old living in Copenhagn with his son Christian Norgaard Larsen and Stina.
