Red Square

Also of interest are attempts to deceive the dead. In order to prevent him from understanding who he is and why he’s here, it wore a mask. Often masks dressed and all those present at the funeral, and they danced, screamed loudly and beat their drums. Being present at a masquerade, deceased, apparently got lost and arrived in complete confusion. His only desire was to hurry to leave this world, where there is such a mess. And so they’d be guaranteed to get rid of the dead man in a hut made a special opening, through which it and pulled out. After removal of the body immediately cover up the hole, and spirits of the dead as he tried he could not find a way back. But not so humiliated over the deceased and all the nasty things expected of them.

In some tribes, on the contrary believed that the dead man to protect them, protect against misfortune. For this mummified corpses to preserve them as long as possible. For mummies even built a special home – mausoleums. Novelist is often quoted on this topic. One of them still stands in Red Square in Moscow. But here’s the Papuans of New Guinea in their veneration of the dead chiefs went far beyond the Bolsheviks – they are rubbed into the putrid pus itself of its leaders, and even used it in! Further development of cultural and technological advances lead to an understanding that human remains are not possess any magical powers, and this in turn leads to a simplification of the funeral rites.

Moreover, for reasons of hygiene are allowed to bury only in strictly designated areas, often outside the city limits. Talk here especially about. And since everyone knows everything. However, the story is known to develop in a spiral. And it seems that these days it completes its giant spiral and ready to move on to another at a higher technical level. So why knowing laws of the past do not dream on, how will bury so years 40-50? Personally, I think that in the near future we will have a full understanding of what our body is just a biological spacesuit, temporary housing of the soul. So after his soul leaves, the suit can be safely disposed of. But no wild beasts of course, but in space, for example. After a straightforward package body will be stored in a container, then launch vehicle will bring it into orbit, and from there the dead men will fly to all corners of the immense universe. One would think that for a fee will be counted and the last will of the deceased. Perhaps, in his will one writes, I wanted to go on his last journey to Orion, and others prefer to fly on Sirius. By the way it is possible that the dead space sooner or later encounter with an extraterrestrial civilization, and then it is better than any textbook will tell them about our planet. Because human DNA keeps a history of life on Earth since its inception. ————— You are currently only imagine that somewhere out there in the cold space, indifferent to everything, including meteorites and comets, illuminated only by the weak flickering stars they fly – SILENT MESSENGER BLUE PLANET.

Russian Federation

So perhaps the idea of Khloponin has a hidden meaning: put up a barrier, tear off local officials to Moscow, most distribute the allocated funds, the most sure that the billions going to a good cause. That's just what to do with Moscow's ministries and departments, where do with thousands of there the officials who "deal with the problems of the North Caucasus"? Can in fact go too far the other way, and it turns out that the vertical power of the Russian Federation, its integrity will be at the regional level only depend on one person – the ambassador dash deputy prime minister. Well if he's really talented manager and, most importantly, a patriot of Russia. And if he, for example, sympathizes very common in the camp radical idea of secession of the North Caucasus from Russia? * Perhaps we exaggerate. Perhaps requiring increasing its powers, Khloponin did not have in mind the federal structure. In this case, it means the idea swelling of the embassy staff, that is a powerful increase in the number of officials already in the North Caucasus. As well-known law of Parkinson's – now add ten points, and tomorrow will require everyone to two assistants, and those still on two … On the motives that have yet Khloponin only guess, because his claims he does not illustrate any word or deed. For eight months, as appointed, but he still rides, meets, settling down, rushing the field of large attacks. In some places, gently tries to "steer".
