DISCOVERY OF THE RATIONAL CRADLE ON EARTH
If the person is born with this or that gift, it is because it has already been pre-determined by Nature that this person has been conceived to invent, discover or explore something for the lapidation and evolution the human beings.
Not long ago, the world went through the era of overseas discoveries, on seas never before navigated, according to the Portuguese writer and poet Luis de Camões, when land in the west was discovered in the northern hemisphere by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and in the southern hemisphere by Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500. Two predestined navigators, with the gift for adventure and for discovery, propelled by the will – the will born within, which is a natural gift of everyone since the Origin – in this case to unveil the unknown.
This gift given by Nature to these navigators, was awakened and stimulated during the preliminary research that they made, while exerting efforts to find evidences that land really existed in that direction and distance. Columbus was the first who had access to the Chinese cartography produced during the expedition commanded by the famous eunuch admiral Zheng He, in 1421, when he sailed from China and while contouring the Cape of Good Hope, in South Africa, approached the coasts of the South and North American continents, navigating along them, often setting on shore.
The British author and researcher Gavin Menzies, a British Navy submarine commander and son of an ambassador of Great Britain to China, a few years ago published a best-seller entitled “1421- the Year in which China discovered the World.” With plentiful documentation and varied sources of information, Menzies notes that the Chinese expeditions were successful because the ships were safe and well equipped, measuring up to 140 meters long, 50 meters wide, seven masts, vertically adjustable rudders up to seven meters tall, V shaped hull and stanch compartments to avoid shipwrecking. They could carry one and a half tons of cargo, and 500 passengers and crew. Besides the nautical learnings and oceanic navigation techniques, they had access to highly precise navigating charts and compasses with magnetized needles.
In the Ming dynasty, China started to enjoy again an economic and cultural boom. Emperor Chengzu was enthroned in 1402 and implemented a program of long maritime trips, for which the naval industry, the largest in the world since the VII century, had made available 317 ships that dwarfed ten times the Spanish and Portuguese small sailing vessels or caravels.
Therefore, when Reasoning about the Chinese enterprise and its Rational purpose, we come to the conclusion that a navigator from the East, bequeathed and propitiated to two navigators from the West, the charts that allowed Columbus to negotiate with the king of Spain, Fernando II of Aragon and Isabel I of Castilla, the Catholic Kings, his maritime expedition to the lands of the East, followed shortly thereafter by the Portuguese fleet that discovered Brazil.
These two continents, for example, could still be inhabited today by red skin Indians in North America or by Tupy-Guarany Indians in Brazil, in case the savage phase had not ended and the civilization phase arrived, through the natural evolution of Nature. And most curiously, according to the Chinese official data, the seven long lasting trips of the fleets, started in 1405 end ended in 1423, when the Chengzu dynasty reached its end and the following one extinguished all the foreign trade, closing down the docks and concentrating its activities in the domestic affairs. In this inwardness process all the fleet was deactivated and disassembled, leaving us, students of Rational Culture, certain that the mission of the Chinese expeditions was only that; of essentially providing means for the Spanish and Portuguese fleets to make sail to their destinations with the certainty that they would discover virgin land overseas. Nature’s Rational work!
And thus, each one with one’s gift all manufactured by Nature, the generator and maker that progresses and evolves according to the progress of the phases. Brazil was the Nation designated by the RATIONAL SUPERIOR, the Reasoning Superior to all Reasoning, to receive His representative on Earth, Lord Manoel Jacinto Coelho, who came here to dictate and publish the Scripture “Universe in Disenchantment” and divulge the Rational Culture worldwide. Since that could not happen among a savage and uncultivated people, it became necessary to bring the European culture over to the Americas, which happened through the two fleet admirals, duly instrumented and gifted by Nature for that purpose.
