  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Hundreds of men searching for gold in an abandoned mine shaft have been trapped below ground near Johannesburg, in what could be a deliberate act by rival miners.

I hope they are able to get out alive. I'll keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

I doubt this will be a difficult rescue given that the main obstacle is a boulder blocking the entrance.  There sure are some nasty people in the world if it was deliberately placed as has been suggested in the article.  I wish them well and thank goodness they were discovered without too much time passing.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
