"i however think that while you can try to manipulate all you want, there is no way to control events, you can only try and create favorable conditions and roll with the punches. "they" can't be controlling everything."
I share your sentiment. While I don't doubt that they are in possession of the ancient's cyclical chronological wisdom, I do not believe; firstly that they fully comprehend it, and secondly change as a necessary component of time, relegates all this wisdom to mere approximation. Especially as our current rendition of priestly society is so removed from nature.
