This is a great find.  I just wonder how much of the find will show up in a museum and how much will disappear.

Mainland China has a very very low tolerance for looters of antiquities ~ treasures or no ... priceless or otherwise ...

True, but the Chinese also have an adage that if you aren't caught, it isn't a crime.

That only applies elsewhere in the world ... in mainland China ~ that does not hold ~ especially nowadays ...

The Third Eye is a book written by Tibetan Doctor/Priest Tuesday Lobsang Rampa.

It's all about Astral Travel and how to detect the aura of other people.

All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

From what I read, official corruption is endemic there. Freelancers without 'friends' may be discouraged, though.

You are not keeping up to date with the situation ~ even if the looters gets their hands on anything there is nowhere for them to get a sale ... unless sneaking it out of the Country ~ tantamount to 'treason' and smuggling of 'National Treasures' basically ends up with a bullet behind the head ... hanging is deemed too good for the likes of them ~

~ National Pride is quite on the ascent in Mainland China lately ~ in every 'Historical' sense of the word ~
