{ Places from the past } - B&W Version

Apart from what ever religion you might be, you can't deny that there are still great misteries about the human being that science can't discover, one of the reason for this is that this mysteries are not a tangible/ physical thing to experiment with.

The soul is our escence but where does it come from and where does it go after our physical body is gone?

According to my religion I believe certain things but I also believe that through history MEN changed religion, meanings and words for their advantage. So it is not wrong to believe that a concept like reincarnation or past life is attached to religion ( like these ones ).

Every time I take photos of places, monuments or things that were made and belonged to a past era, I always feel attached to it, not only because I love past eras in terms of aesthetics, culture, society, lifestyles, etc but because somehow I feel connected to it. I have found articles online that talk about some signs to know that your soul has reincarnated or that you lived a past life. Bare in mind that, there are 2 theories , whether your soul might have reincarnated in the same body, thus you are repeting your life again and again until you learn what you are suppous to learn or your soul reincarnated in differented bodies and different eras.

-Signs your body has reincarnated : ( for more go here )

  1. Recurring dreams.
  2. Out of place memories.
  3. You have a strong intuition.
  4. Deja Vu.
  5. You are an empath.
  6. Precognition.
  7. Retrocognition.
  8. You feel older than your age reflects ( or maybe younger, hence you died at a young age).
  9. You have a great affinity for certain cultures/time periods/enviroments.
  10. Unexpleinable fears or phobias.
  11. You feel as though this earth is not your home.

Children and Post-mortem photography Pt. 3

Some facts about the time: In the 19th and first half of the 20th century, everybody knew about death in childbirth, particularly those women who were about to go through the process. Although death rates from many other conditions were high, they at least were among people who had been ill beforehand. Death in relation to childbirth was mostly in fit young women who had been quite well before becoming pregnant. They died, often leaving the baby, and other children in the family from previous births, with a widowed husband.   
To inmortalize this chirdren who had barely lived, the families used to decide to take a post mortem photography of their children, after all this was the only memorie the family would have of their angel.  
 It is only recently that the Church of England prayer book removed the service for the ‘churching of women who had recently given birth’ which starts by giving thanks to God for:  
‘The safe deliverance and preservation from the great dangers of childbirth.’

From 1800 to 1950, maternal mortality was the yardstick for assessing maternity services and it was carefully examined by obstetricians. There were certain problems in defining maternal death (such as the inclusion of those associated with spontaneous abortions) and how long after delivery was the postpartum period. Until 1900 this was 1 month, and after that 6 weeks, with maternal deaths up to 1 year still being noted in Britain. It was also difficult to get the exact numbers of women dying in childbirth, for there was no national counting of deaths. Until the Registration of Deaths Act of 1837, one had to rely upon bills of mortality or parish registers.

Every modern, economically developed nation has experienced the demographic transition from high to low levels of fertility and mortality. America is no exception. In the early nineteenth century, the typical American woman had between seven and eight live births in her lifetime and people probably lived fewer than forty years on average. But America was also distinctive. First, its fertility transition began in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century at the latest.   
Other Western nations began their sustained fertility declines in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, with the exception of France, whose decline also began early. Second, the fertility rate in America commenced its sustained decline long before that of mortality. This contrasts with the more typical demographic transition in which mortality decline precedes or occurs simultaneously with fertility decline.   
American mortality did not experience a sustained and irreversible decline until about the 1870s. Third, both these processes were influenced by America’s very high level of net in-migration and also by the significant population redistribution to frontier areas and later to cities, towns, and suburbs.

[ The Seventh Cloud ] Album - Page 3

    Selected Poems and Prose 
   John Clare 

I am - yet what I am, none cares or knows; 
My friends forsake me like a memory lost: 
I am the self-consumer of my woes —  
They rise and vanish in oblivions host, 
Like shadows in love frenzied stifled throes 
And yet I am, and live — like vapours tost 
Into the nothingness of scorn and noise, 
Into the living sea of waking dreams, 
Where there is neither sense of life or joys, 
But the vast shipwreck of my lifes esteems; 
Even the dearest that I love best 
Are strange — nay, rather, stranger than the rest. 
I long for scenes where man hath never trod 
A place where woman never smiled or wept 
There to abide with my Creator God, 
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept, 
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie 
The grass below, above, the vaulted sky.
