Tria Mera - 666 - The truth

Following is a reference to the movie white noise, what you see on this page is not my opinion, and I am not interested on this stuff, if you come here than you are probably searching after watching the movie or researching tria mera term, this is for educational purposes only.

The expression, Third Day, appears in several narratives in the Bible. (Occasionally, it is “three days.”) Some biblical interpreters have thought that some of these third day motifs have significance by signifying a certain divine principle, and a few interpreters have thought that they are cryptic in meaning. Why? Interestingly, these narratives record some of the most important events in the history of Israel. And surprisingly, except for the Bible’s mention of the third day, the seventh day, and its account of creation in Genesis 1, the Bible rarely mentions the other days of the week.

Understanding Stroke and its Causes

Stroke is a sudden episode that occurs when arteries leading to and within the brain are affected (either blocked by clots or rupture). It is sometimes termed a cardiovascular accident or brain attack. It is much like a heart attack, which only occurs in the brain. When it happens, the part of the affected brain cannot get enough oxygen it needs and if the cells are deprived of oxygen for more than 4 minutes, they die leading to permanent brain damage. As well as a heart attack, stroke is a medical emergency and fast treatment is essential for the positive disease outcome. Treatment options usually include medications, surgery and rehabilitation.
There exist two types of stroke: ischemic, which makes 80% of all strokes and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs when a blood clot in the brain vessels prevents blood flow to cells. Clots typically form in areas where arteries in the brain or neck have been severely narrowed or blocked by plaques. This is called stenosis, which usually resu…
