Since our conception which is hard to date but probably goes back to 2012 or so, our mission has been to promote happiness through holistic education. The mind, the body and the spirit are synched together and an education that is good for our heart, is good for our mind as well. Our SKANDALON program is devoted exclusively to searching for happiness theories that have been proved in practice to work, and providing them to as wide a public as possible by making use of information technology and the internet. The University system has the goal of providing education to all levels of participants in a traditional format, which divides the year into semesters (we use three, each lasting 16 weeks.) Administratively, our old domain "lavalangadivita.com" is in limbo; however, we recently acquired a domain with NAMECHEAP for less than $3 a month.
ABOUT OUR CREDENTIALS:
We are adequately educated by this world's standards, and we think it is clear that we have the necessary knowledge to carry out our mission. we are building a portfolio so that we can comply with governmental regulations regarding accreditation; we are putting in place our own requirements as well which are more in keeping with our mission of LOVE. O NO ISNT" THAT CORNY AND STUPID. ARE YOU HIGH?
ABOUT THE PROGRAMS:
As we are aware the internet is changing education in a significant way and information is universal, at least it has the potential to be if we are candid about the situation. For more on that see for example the documentary AARON SWARTZ, THE INTERNET'S OWN BOY. The skandalon happiness program can be accessed here The regular school has all levels from primary school through Post Graduate and can be used in a variety of ways to provide a supplement for other programs or if you wish to design your own education with the help of mentors or tutors. We have a wider audience because of the internet and we are designing a course template that anyone can use easily whether as student or course designer. English is used because of its wide diffusion, not because we believe it is superior. As a matter of fact all forms of human expression have their value and are crucial to understanding the cultures they help to form. If you engage with these materials, please note the following: No matter what the subject, all classes are 16 weeks but you can do them as quickly or as slowly as you wish. All classes are free. All classes are meant to make people better off in every way, and most of all more loving.
A BIT ABOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR MISSION WHY MUSIC?
Before there were the seven L's, there were the seven P's: PUMA, PADRINO, PIO, PA, PAPA, PEDRO, PIER GIORGIO. THIS MATERIAL NEEDS TO BE MOVED TO THE PARACLETE PAGE AND PROBABLY SHINED UP WITH A LOT OF FANCY LANGUAGE. BECAUSE IT IS A LITTLE BIT UPSETTING TO THE ACADEMIC WORLD. WHY? BECAUSE IT INVOLVES THINGS THAT ARE NOT UNDERSTOOD ON BOTH SIDES. YOU CAN"T JUST DROP SHIZ INTO THE CAULDRON. YOU HAVE TO GO SLOWLY. Our padrino was a musical one, however. Read on. Between the years of 2006 and 2010 what was to become the Valanga/Uriel project came under the paternal and pedagogical influence of an unlikely mentor: an illiterate convict. This individual however was a good cook, and a good psycologist without realizing it because whenever someone including himself was sad, he would say, "sing a song and you'll feel better" or "sing to me, and I'll feel better" or "let's sing together" or "lets sing to each other." This home grown remedy always seemed to work, although the singing was not done with radios much less with cell phones and computers which he did not know how to use, but simply with the voice, this individual also providing accompaniment by his very skilled imitation of various sounds from animals to musical instruments. Science is now proving that music enhances neural pathways and builds your brain, so it is quite possible that without formal education, a person such as the one described above became quite intelligent by constant engagement with music of a certain kind, music that had a positive and life-giving effect on his cerebral cortex and increased his cognitive capacities. If it can do so for someone who never read a book, that says a lot about the power of music to affect our minds and thats' what a university is about.
ABOUT ARCHANGEL URIEL. WHY URIEL? URIEL AND LO DUCA.
There is no need to believe in angels or supernatural beings to take these classes. However, a lot of peole throughout history have believed in and even encountered such beings. Are we to assume they were all crazy? Not logical.
The name Uriel is from the ancient Hebrew and means "God is my light". In the 700s COMMON ERA aka AD Pope Zachary forbade the cult of angel Uriel and similarly in 2002 Pope John Paul's administration banned the worship of Uriel because some theologians feared he was a demon, perhaps even Lucifer, the "light bearer" masquerading as an angel of good will. The name Uriel however seems perfect for a university. Doesn't it? This is not to say we disrespect the pope, no! Let's just figure this out! This is so amazing you may think you died and went to heaven. And maybe you did...who knows?
Would Lucifer want a church? That's the obvious question. It seems illogical, doesn't it? According to lawyer Carmine Alvino, who loves Uriel and wants his name to be known, In the 16th century, archangel Uriel appeared before the Sicilian friar Antonio Lo Duca and told him to build a church in the Termini area. Lo Duca told pope Pius IV about the apparition, the pope then asked Michelangelo to design the church. It is the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, located at the Esedra Plaza. The Church of Saint Uriel in Milan was actually destroyed according to Alvino to put an end to the masses said in Uriel's honor even though certain prayers dating to the Hebrew exile in the desert mention Uriel as being a protector of the Hebrew people.
