Still “Kicking”, and still breathing!


Though it has been quite a while since I was last active on this and a few other blogs,

One of those things about not having internet at home (DAMNED internet market needs MORE competition, not more meddlesome regulation!), it makes things a bit more difficult to keep on top of things online (especially concerning my own websites). There is absolutely NO REASON, whatsoever, that internet service should be so damned expensive (AND – with bandwidth caps too???).

So, it does take me a bit longer to get around to things online (because I also have a very busy “outside life” too).

At least my self-hosted blog site seems to be well-secured and “hardened”. It took me many months of researching, testing, and implementing good, solid security protocols that would work well with WordPress (and hopefully with the soon-to-be installed WooCommerce too). Once I can get my other websites restored AND equally secured, I want to start selling some of my own hand-crafted items online.

Also,

For those who may have an interest,

Because I have had a registered organization within my home state for quite some time (BTW: called “TEMPLE OF THE ANCIENT DRAGONS Shamanic Ministries”), I was seriously considering converting it to an LLC (Limited-Liability Company) or perhaps a full-blown S-type Corporation (using the “INC” tag at the end of the name, if you will) – so that it can become a fully-fledged “religious” institution. (By “religious”, I do not mean anything doctrinal nor dogmatic, like the usual established “religions”, but a place of spiritual worship and reverence – as well as a place of “Higher-Learning”.) Therefore, I am in the process of designing and writing a full Seminary Course on Dragon-Spirituality and Dragon-Shamanism. I hope to create a fairly substantive and thoughtful course, for those who wish to learn as I have learned: By actually Experiencing the presence of the Great Dragons, as well as working as partners with them. I want to realize the dream of sharing the relationship with the many varied and very Ancient and Wise Dragons, so that others who are genuinely interested, can find and further build upon their own relationships with the Ancient Dragons. This is to become the center-point of where others discover their own personal “religion”, and how it can become a great and wonderful avenue of personal empowerment and enlightenment – with the Dragons’ help and guidance. — So, this may sound like a tall order for me to accomplish. However, being that I no longer have the external interferences that plagued my personal mission for years (bad relationships have a habit of doing these kinds of disruptions, often to be felt for years afterward), there should be NO BARRIERS to my accomplishing this “Labor of Love” any longer.

So, the “Temple of The Ancient Dragons” (as a Shamanic Ministry, and then some),

Is to be the starting point of this personal mission, and that in which to build upon the successes, and upon more successes. As I have seen it for many a year, the great Wisdom of the Ancient Dragons is now needed more than ever, if we, as a species and kind, are to make it through these troubling times of this age. Our Ancient, Earthly Ancestors had the power and the wisdom in their times, to see themselves through the troubles of their day. So there is no reason why We can not rediscover those same principles and wisdoms, and apply them to our own daily lives for the better.

So, until we Meet again,

– Ne’Shae Daasha! ! !

The Dance of Jupiter and Venus.


As Venus and Jupiter dance the Night Sky,
As Mars watches jealously from His hidden corner,
For it was as His first love, Venus, that Mars made His claim.

Dastardly, as Jupiter steps in, and confounds and controls the arrangement,
That Mars grows jealous evermore.
But that BOTH Mars and Jupiter fail to grasp: Venus be forever a Virgin, and of own-kept mind!

The impossible pairing of any with Dear Venus, result being none after.

Lest, the foolhardy dances with Venus,
With prospective Heart, and hopeful intentions,
Be all for naught!

Venus struts off, all her virginity left intact,
For some other anxious Soul to ply His tricks,
And fail to win Her hand thereafter.

A Soul’s Journey: My Interpretation of the Development of Soul.


A figured this would be a good time to write about what I have learned,

Through personal experiences, the journey of the Soul, from one Life to the next.

My particular beliefs about the Soul, Spirit, and all the other possible “bodies”, physical and non-physical, differ greatly from most of today’s known (and a few not-so-known) spiritual “systems”: I view the “spirit” and the “soul” as two different aspects that coexist from beginning to end.

One, the Spirit, is what we start off with, as human beings start off life as an infant –

With only a minimal vestige or “budding” of personality traits, characteristics, or whatever means to describe them. Everything has Spirit as its inner-dimensional existence. All Spirit(s) have a particular vibration that resonates within and without the known (and again, not-so-known) Cosmos (by “cosmos”, I mean far greater an expression than simply “universe” – IE: “everything”). The Spirit is the starting point or “template” in which to build upon the various experiences and knowledge attained through the steps (or “lives”) one travels.

The Soul, is that which becomes the uniqueness and “personality” (for lack of a better descriptor) worn by the particular Spirit.

The Soul becomes the vast accumulation of experiences, feelings, knowledge, and general other individualistic characteristics that identify this Spirit as an individual reflection of what we may think of as “God”. Just as each star, sun, grain of sand on a beach, can be as unique to one another – so can the various “reflections of God” we call “Soul”. The Spirit accumulates this make up of a “personality” as in “building a Soul”. The Soul is the individualized aspect of that singular piece of Spirit. The Soul becomes, as its own unique Cosmic Vibration.

Now,

I can hear the various chorus calls of how I am “wrong” and there is “no degree of separation” of Spirit. This is the usual “establishment-oriented” religious dogma that plagues humanity with this “there is no such thing as individuality” mode. Well, I say they are not truly exploring that realm of individuality to experience it for themselves. Most of them will never venture into that “unknown territory”, because they are constantly gerded against such thoughts by their dogmatic teachers! Yes, we are all from the same origin, but like the proverbial “child”, we eventually must mature, and begin the journey towards individualizing and exploring the realms of the Spiritual unknown, IE: Individuality. The child eventually leaves “home” when it grows up and matures, to start a new life of its own – and start a new family. That newly-“emancipated” adult becomes responsible for its own actions, reaction from those actions, and recreating new realities.

The idea of “reincarnation” and “schooling through multiple lives”.

One late night radio program had a very interesting guest on it.

Though I have long forgotten his name, he said a very catchy and startling phrase that rang loudly within me: “Schoolhouse Earth“! It made a lot of sense to me in that “life” is all about learning. One of the greatest teachers one has (and, I am pretty sure that every “living thing” has this as a teacher) in Life is experience. Experience, each and every instance, event, and reaction, has a lot to teach us about our travels in “life”. No other teaching or education “system” can compare, let alone parallel what experience can teach us, and to such great depths of knowledge. Experience is they only teacher of a thing called: “Wisdom”. No other teacher can “give” wisdom. Only the individual learning through hard-earned experience. Other teachers can give tools, methods, and basic examples, but experience is gained by actually learning to use them well (That’s Wisdom).

Anyway,

Those who acknowledge reincarnation as part of “life” and pure existence,

See the purpose behind multiple, different lives, and how each “life” adds to the ever-growing collection of “lifetime experiences” of the Soul. The Spirit passes through everything, and beyond anything including “time”. The Soul, gets progressively more-defined, and more individualistic in its Cosmic Vibration(s). Each and every interation (life) is simply another stage the Soul, and ultimately, the “richness of the Spirit”, grow and become more “God-like”. (We ARE considered to be born in the image of our Creator, aren’t we?)

Being that the Spirit (and its developing Soul-Personality) is transcendant over everything and anything (especially over the physical),

Then would it not make complete sense that the Spirit (and Soul) are not limited to inhabiting one specific, singular physical (or other) form??? The form one takes in a specific life, is purely to allow that Soul to gain the experience that is most common through the experiences in that form. Each particular form (species, especially) experiences different aspects and qualities of life. The world appears differently to them through own eyes, ears, and all other senses that are common and integral with that form. Ever experience the world as an ant, or as a bird, or even as a fish??? Such cases of interesting memories have been recorded during the hypnosis sessions, as told by the many researched human subjects of those sessions. Some have even recalled, through deep hypnosis, astonishing details that were later found to be relevent and actual happenings in a part of history!

This then brings us to the subject of, . . .

“Otherkinism”.

Many of today’s religious “systems” and “churches” (to include most of the “new-age” belief “systems”) turn rather sour on discussions about “otherkin” and “otherkinsim”. (My, how ‘tolerant’ some of these religions claim to be!!!) They believe it is all impossible, and think that folks who follow the line of thinking about otherkinism being real and demonstrable are a bunch of kooks, phonies, and mentally ill. (My, how ‘tolerant’ some of these religions claim to be, again!!!) They may also consider this subject as being purely from the “gamers’ groups” and rpg’ers. Well, the ancient peoples also had different ideas – and considered trans-species Soul incarnations to be quite real. The reason why many practicing Buddhists and Hindus (and many variations and “sects” of the old Vedic Ways) are purely vegetarian (or nowadays, more like “vegan”) cited, is that the animals around them may be the reincarnations of their departed loved ones and family members (especially those who were considered “rewarded” for their pious living in one or more past-lives). They truly believe that killing and eating of any of the animals could possibly end up in their killing off a being with the Soul of their departed. (Sounds a bit like otherkinism reversed, doesn’t it?) So, much of today’s Buddhism and Hinduism centers around a form of “otherkinism”! So what’s the difference towards those who claim to have lived past-lives in non-human form???

In closing this article,

I want to stress the fact that there are some in the world who whole-heartedly believe in otherkinism, and the ability of the Soul to transcend ANY form it feels is necessary from life to life, to gain a fuller experience of its own existence. “Otherkins” may not be very well known, nor may there be very many who have the courage to claim they are non-human Souls (even though, the “Soul” is far more capable than just being “human”). To agree with one of Jafira Dragon’s modes of thinking: “It is not necessarily an easy thing to reconcile with, that one is an otherworldly Soul, or may have existed in a different form in a past life.” There is even an “e-book” on the subject of otherkinism! The first kind of “manual” of its kind, and a very detailed, well-developed piece of writing that continues to evolve as more experiences and personal testimonies come to the surface. It is called “Jafira’s Draconity Guide” (tailored mainly towards those who consider themselves “Dragon-Souls”).

As to also speak of the several well-practiced psychics I knew,

I was said, repeatedly, that I myself am an “ancient Soul” (meaning, I apparently have been around in different incarnations for a very long time). There are probably many who are also “Ancient Souls”, and perhaps some, who do not even remember it yet! Such is the aspect of a Soul; Ageless, timeless, and ever-present in any reality, and every reality. A practicing shaman, often one who tries to incorporate the “old ways” of shamanism, would see this an ineffable truth. The Soul journeys onward and outward, regardless of its present form. The form a Soul takes in its present life, does not necessarily define its state of being (other than through the basis of experiencing life through the eyes of that form). In the simplest way to express it: “The body, does NOT define the Being.

Let’s Set this Story Straight, for Once and for All, Shall We?


Very interesting that a particular story seems to be making very vocal rounds about the news world and the internet:

I am talking about the hunting excursion, in Africa, involving an American dentist, who apparently has some serious money to burn, and is being held up world wide as a heinous villain. I am talking about Mr. Walter Palmer and the hunting-guide outfit that accompanied him to the spot where he shot a Lion named “Cecil”. It is very disturbing that the cacophonous calls of him being a “murderer” and an absolutely horrible human being for his part in the killing of Cecil.

So,

Is this to be another call to eliminate the institution of “hunting”, and ban all sorts of outdoorsmanship of any similarity? – The shrill, emotionally-charged chorus-calls behind such movements and publicized statements just shows the irrationality of the whole issue by various groups of people who have only emotion and fantasy to base their actions on. It just the sort of “touchy-feely” opportunism that overrides commonsense and rational thinking, that begets unrealistic and often totalitarian responses of more regulation and “laws” to further regulate the people’s activities. However, what is really being accomplished here, and to what end?

We all like to see the cute little babies of virtually all animal species, and watch their playful antics. We all enjoy a good story of a beautiful family in the wilds, and the often breath-taking views of the scenery on a bright, sun-lit day somewhere far off in the distance. However, are these same “loving people” also in touch with the darker shades of Nature, and the many horrors that often play out in the most unexpected and heart-wrenching fashion? Do these people truly understand the principles and actions behind the Will of Nature? – Methinks not!

I have personally seen much of BOTH faces of the natural world, being that I also live very near some of the most desolate and most unforgiving environments that Nature has to offer the great Northwest of the United States. I have personally seen the constant struggle for survival of many different species of life, both large and very small, as they live precariously from day to day. Life is very hard, and sometimes – very short for some individuals in the Natural World. There is Life and Death in Nature, and sometimes, either or neither can be very beautiful, or very horrible! Nature just is what it is. Nature can be both merciful, and heart-rendingly merciless in Her dealings with any and all species and individuals.

We, as a supposedly highly-sentient species, should KNOW all of this, even if by merely observing these truths played out in front of us, daily and always. Hunting is the province of the predator species (which includes we humans), and the prey – the subject of the hunt. (I know, I know! We have “grocery stores”! WHO needs to hunt anymore?) – Well, to rely upon an artificiated convenience (like grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) without truly acknowledging that these conveniences come at great effort, and great cost to continue, do we even realize that these “conveniences”, may one day, no longer be convenient nor accessible due to some unforeseen “disaster” or disruption in the supply chains. If all of our conveniences were to suddenly become “unavailable” and not-so convenient, what happens to those who lack the basic survival skills needed to navigate through those contingencies???

If we are to take a close look at things, rationally, in today’s world, we should begin to realize that Nature had the first recipe for existence AND survival. Nature’s adage: “Survival of the fittest”. This means that these terrible struggles that most of Nature’s (non-human) children go through, are part of the tempering process by which the strongest and most able the species, are the ones who stand the best chance of survival, and go on to produce more of their species. This is an immutable fact of Nature!

Also what’s pertinent in respect to Nature:

Waste not, want not!

We, as a sentient species, should also know that Nature wants to maintain a balance in the natural world. If we are to have plenty of game and such, in which to hunt AND (hopefully) utilize to the fullest, we should be smart about taking ONLY WHAT WE WILL RIGHTLY USE. – I have never been a big fan of “trophy”-hunting, as most of the “trophy-hunters” seem only interested in obtaining something to hang on the walls of their homes as a memento of their “conquering Nature”! What about the other usable parts and pieces of these animals? There are many hungry people in this world (by artificiated design of the globalists) who would be fed by the remains of the carcass of the deceased. What about the parts usable for clothing, as there surely are many who can not afford to procure their own clothing for protection from the elements? AND, what about being grateful for the challenge the animal gave while it was still alive, and grateful for its destiny being placed into your hands? (As like the various ancient peoples did.)

* * *

The only crimes I can conceivably consider for Mr. Palmer AND the hunting-guide outfit who traveled with him:

Mr. Palmer: – Poaching, by means of illegal enticement of an animal from a preserve, for the purposes of killing it outside of that preserve. – And – Waste and Abuse of animal through cruel and unusual treatment and negligence. –> “If you wound it, you had best go after it and finish killing it!

The Hunting Guides: – Accessory to poaching, aiding and abetting poaching, conspiracy to commit and/or allow, and complicity to poaching, aiding and abetting the illegal enticement of a game animals from a preserve, for the purposes of allowing the hunter to kill it outside of that preserve.

The most damning of all:

If Mr. Palmer did indeed allow the animal HE WOUNDED to wander and suffer from his inflicted injuries for over fourty hours, then shame on HIM! – I am from “The Old School” of hunting: “If you shoot it and wound it, YOU go after it and FINISH THE JOB of killing it, so as to put it out of its misery!

There ARE at least some hunters with a rational moral of ethics.

To those who wish to see the total ending of all hunting, period:

– “You are outside the bounds of rationality and reason. Perhaps you do not TRULY understand how cruel Nature can be, and often is, especially when it is Her predators doing the hunting.

New Study: GMO Soy Accumulates Cancerous Formaldehyde.


Among other shocking issues. . .

soybeans-crops-735-350
Christina Sarich
Posted on July 17, 2015

As if there weren’t plenty of reasons already to avoid genetically modified soy and other soy products – now a new study has made eating this GM crop even less appetizing.

As I previously reported for Natural Society, GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and reproductive system – and that’s not good considering that almost 90 percent of the soy grown in the US is genetically modified.

In a study we recently shared with you, researchers in Egypt who studied rats fed a GM soy diet found that:
  • DNA fragmentation increased significantly after the rats were fed GM soy, and the levels of toxicity increased at 30, 60, and 90 days.
  • Glyphosate-tolerant enzymes were found in the blood, and as researchers pointed out, “There is a growing concern that introducing foreign genes into food plants may have an unexpected and negative impact on human health.”
  • The kidney’s bio-pathology increased. Blood creatinine and uric acid concentrations increased significantly in rats fed the GM diet for 30, 60, or 90 days.
  • Chromosomal aberrations were observed. There was a “highly significant” number of abnormal cells.

Now, a study has just been released by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, which states that in vitro and in vivo lab tests reveal that a diet of GM soy results in:

“[the] accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soy, indicating that formaldehyde and glutathione are likely critical criteria for distinguishing the GMO from its non-GMO counterpart.”

This means that all those biotech claims that GM and non-GM soy are essentially the same, are nothing but hogwash.

Dr. Ayyadurai stated:

 “The results demand immediate testing along with rigorous scientific standards to assure such testing is objective and replicable. It’s unbelievable such standards for testing do not already exist. The safety of our food supply demands that science deliver such modern scientific standards for approval of GMOs.”

This is yet another reason to avoid GM soy.

COMMENT FROM THE POSTER:

And so the beat goes on even more.

Soy products of today have had questionable effects on human health, yet no one in industry, and definitely not in “government” have had the temerity to even do the proper research and evaluations of much of the soy products before pushing them as “health foods” in the market. Much of the “natural” soy products are actually filled with toxic residues of the agricultural chemicals used during growing, and the various chemicals used in the processing of raw soy.

More to this point, UNfermented soy and products made from unfermented soy are actually unfit and quite unhealthy for the human body. Many ancient cultures who used soy products for thousands of years fermented it first, as this effectively removes the more toxic principles before consumption. One of these unhealthy substances that naturally occurs in soy belongs in the chemical class of “pseudo-estrogens”. That is, a substance that mimics the effects of estrogen in the body that may cause certain undesireable characteristics to occur in the body. – This from unfermented soy.

Most of the “natural” (as claimed by the manufacturer on the label) soy products like “Silk” (TM), soy-based coffee creamers, and even the DHA that is added to certain baby formulas was extracted and treated with hazardous chemicals like Cyclo-Hexane, and various other petro-chemical-based substances. The resulting residual contaminants can lead to other health problems. Then, many sampled soy products were found to contain trace amounts of Mercury, an dangerous neurotoxic heavy metal that can accumulate in the body!

GMO soy has the added problems in that NONE of the various GMO-agriproducts have been thoroughly tested for actual health effects on the human population. They have all been “Generally Regarded As Safe” by the Food and Drug Administration without any actual hard evidence. Then, there is the problem of “Round-Up Resistant” (TM) crops yielding sufficient contaminating amounts of the dangerous Glyphosate (TM) and its common metabolite AMPA (Amino-Methyl-Phosphoric-Acid). These substances are being discovered in human urine, milk, and body fat samples of virtually the entire populations of the Western World, as well as in populations of many of the countries producing these GMO crops.

Where my Temple takes a stand against GMOs, in general, is when it is all in the misguided thinking, by the biggest pushers and profiteers of the sale of GMOs, that they can “improve upon Nature”. – This hubris in its finest shining colors, and We, the human species, are the unwilling “Guinea Pigs” in this grand experiement of the “refining and redefining of Nature”!

Think it is all to horrible to be true?

Perhaps it is time to do your own investigation, and compare what the pro-GMO crowd says is safe, to what you can reasonably find are the REAL answers.

How Fluoride Damages Pineal Gland Health.


From: Global Healing Center, July 17, 2015,
By: Dr. Edward F. Group, III,

Fluoride was originally added to the water supply sometime around the end of World War II in an effort to improve overall dental health. While the well-intended practice may have accomplished just that (although it’s still up for debate), no one anticipated the physical health dangers. Now, more and more people are recognizing the effects, and one of those is how it damages the pineal gland.

Fluoride: A Neurotoxin That Damages Your Pineal Gland

If you’ve never heard of the pineal gland, know it’s got a pretty important job. Located in the center of the brain, it’s responsible for melatonin synthesis (which plays a role in maintaining normal rhythms and sleep cycles), and also helps convert signals between our nervous and endocrine systems. Something about melatonin: it’s thought to act as a neuro-protector that could play a role in the aging process and Alzheimer’s, so when it’s messed up by things like fluoride, you could probably guess the result. [1] Unfortunately, the pineal gland can develop problems because it can also absorb a lot of fluoride—even more than our bones.

Our bones are exposed to toxic fluoride much more than we might think. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests: ”Fluoride levels above 1.5 mg per liter cause pitting of tooth enamel and deposits in bones.” [2] And because so much of the general water supply in the U.S. is still fluoridated, we’re often exposed to levels in the 2 to 5 mg range. Remember, not only is fluoride in the water, it’s also in a lot of the dental products you might be using.

But, let’s get back to that pineal gland. Fluoride can accumulate and calcify on the gland, blocking its effectiveness, and these deposits can get worse as we age. [3] No one is completely sure how fluoride build-up hurts the gland, but there are lots of ideas. A blocked pineal gland could lead to things like trouble sleeping or weight gain. One study even suggests toxic calcification could lead to early onset of puberty in girls. [4]

How to Detoxify the Pineal Gland

If you want to detox and decalcify your pineal gland from fluoride, there are some easy things you can do! First, stop drinking fluoridated water; this means you should probably steer clear of tap water, choosing alkaline or distilled water instead. Another thing you could do is try fluoride-free dental products.

So, now that you know a little bit about how fluoride can damage pineal gland health, what will you do to avoid it?

COMMENT BY THE POSTER:

One of the ways this calcification is accomplished, is by the removal of the body’s Boron. Boron is one of the most important elements the body uses to properly assimilate and utilize Calcium, as well as to help regulate the body’s Calcium levels. Fluorides (especially of the form that is added to drinking water) bind up and cause the body to flush out most of its supply of Boron through the urine. This, plus the relative unavailability of Boron compounds from the soils (due to the excessive use of petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides) creates chronic Boron-deficiency in the body.

Fluorides, as well as excessive amounts of other halides (like too much salt), effectively bind up and flush Boron out of the body. Therefore, a Boron-supplimentation therapy is needed for the body to be able to rebalance its Calcium levels, AND help mitigate severe Magnesium deficiencies.

Just more reasons to completely avoid fluoridated water and products made with fluoridated water!

New Study Finds GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile.


Unlike GM corn, non-GMO corn doesn’t cause sterility.

New Study Finds GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile
Image Credits: Vmcreddy / Wiki.
by: Christina Sarich
Infowars.com
July 2, 2015

Still think GMOs and their non-GMO counterparts are equivalent? Think again. Unlike GM corn, non-GMO corn doesn’t cause sterility. A new study released by Egyptian scientists found that rats fed a GMO diet suffer from infertility, among other health issues.

Researchers from the Food Technology Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Anatomy and Embryology, and Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Suez Canal University, Ismailia, Egypt, have found that several unsavory changes occur when rats were fed GM corn.

The rats’ organs/body weight and serum biochemistry were altered, indicating potential adverse health and toxic effects.

“GM corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys. In addition they found other organs may be affected too, such as heart and spleen, or blood cells. The kidneys of males fared the worst, with 43.5% of all the changes, the liver of females followed with 30.8%”

Additionally, by day 91, many of the rats fed a GM diet were completely sterile.

As reported by Sustainable Pulse:

In the third study, histopathological examination was carried out on the rats fed the GM maize, and the results were compared with rats fed non-GM maize. The study found clear signs of organ pathology in the GM-fed group, especially in the liver, kidney, and small intestine. An examination of the testes revealed necrosis (death) and desquamation (shedding) of the spermatogonial cells that are the foundation of sperm cells and thus male fertility – and all this after only 91 days of feeding.”

How long do you think this effect will take to show up in human beings who eat GM food?

The study abstract reads:

“This study was designed to evaluate the safety of genetically modified (GM) corn (Ajeeb YG). Corn grains from Ajeeb YG or its control (Ajeeb) were incorporated into rodent diets at 30% concentrations administered to rats (n= 10/group) for 45 and 91 days…General conditions were observed daily…and serum biochemistry were measured. The data showed several statistically significant differences in organs/body weight and serum biochemistry between the rats fed on GM and/or Non-GM corn and the rats fed on AIN93G diets. In general, GM corn sample caused several changes by increase or decrease organs/body weight or serum biochemistry values. This indicates potential adverse health/toxic effects of GM corn and further investigations still needed.”

This study simply corroborates previous findings, proving the same deleterious effects. Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov and his colleagues found that Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction – in many cases, causing infertility. Animals who ate GM soy were sterile by the third generation.

Years ago, Natural Society unveiled proof that hamsters fed Monsanto’s GM soy for two years had growth and development abnormalities, and also – became sterile.

If you don’t see a pattern here, you might need to look again.

COMMENT FROM THE POSTER:

How much clearer does it need to be? GMO’s and the general “Frankenstein Mentality” behind genetic-engineering sciences has a price, and a very high, perhaps irreversable one! This has the stamp of the “endgame plan” for humanity by the globalists. This was also one of the many ways supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to control and forcibly-reduce the world human population (along with the use of “vaccines”)!

It can be NO clearer what their intentions for us really are.

This is also WHY the Trans-Pacific Partnership “trade” agreement, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership treaty, and all other similar “trade treaties” need to be scrapped, NOT supported and passed. They are the means and the way to do an end-run around our domestic laws and codes on safety, quality-control, and environmental concerns. Though I am for less government, wherever and whenever possible, I am also for disallowing and stopping the privatization through “corporatization” of virtually every aspect of our lives. All of this must be scrapped, right now!

The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part II


How Our Present Reality may be defined or at least shaped by Our Past.

Many of our personal “isms” that we may express or act upon today, are often supported or induced by memories of our past.

Some of the things we may dislike, or altogether avoid, that we are likely to encounter later in our lives, usually come from some past experiences in them. These kinds of experiences tend to be unfavorable or even very tragic ones. This commonplace with folks who have suffered some form of personal trauma due to experiencing an event that may have traumatized them to the point of eliciting nightmares as an after-effect. Some of the more common cases arising from folks who have grown up in especially violent environments, 1) were victims of a violent or non-violent but traumatizing crime committed by another, 2) wartime soldiers’ and veterans’ experiences on the battlefields (in what used to be called “shell-shock” in the old times, and now is called “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” [PTSD]), 3) those who experienced abuse in childhood years at home, 4) social problems with others – especially from being bullied by others, 5) and various other “forgotten”, but unresolved experiences. There is a very long list of the types of past events and experiences that may affect how one sees the world, and interacts with it, today.

The Nature of Some of our Phobias:

Many personal phobias may arise from something, or a multiple of things, that have been experienced in the past. Such memories of those events may be foggy at best, and not so visible in the here and now, but their effects can still be felt, although subtly. A common coping mechanism to “get past” a particular event is often by denying it. Such a denial of its occurrence does not necessarily “make it go away”, nor may it lend itself to a simple healing solution. Such an experience can easily lead to life-long effects, and even interfere with the individual’s potential abilities at interacting with society, if not dealt with in a timely manner and in a way that opens the doors to some workable, effective solutions. Most of these phobias will have a strong emotional element to them, relating directly to the emotional response of the experience which may have resulted in them.

Some cases of particular phobias, and/or other specific “nervous ticks” may be expressed, even without a direct recollection of the past experience that triggered them. Some adverse experiences may even have some folks become more socially withdrawn, as they become distrustful of others around them. This is one major area where modern psychiatry has failed miserably in its pursuits for “treatments”, especially when utilizing such methods as aversion-therapy, prescribed medications (petro-chemical drugs), and other “prosthetic bandage” methods which do very little to address the root causes and problems. Such treatment options are usually graded on how much profit can result from the treatment plans. Medicating such patients is especially inefficient, usually unhelpful, but profitable to the doctors AND the manufacturers of those products, even at the expense of the patient – and possibly society, later.

The Unseen Scars.

Many of the so-called “psychological” problems that result from unfortunate past experiences, are often referred to as the “Unseen Scars”, where such injuries were not so physically evident, but the emotional pain remains, hidden from public view. Such emotional “scars” can remain for many years, up until the last of a being’s life. Medications, aversion therapies, and especially “electroshock therapy” (which WAS outlawed years ago, but seems to be reintroduced as a “viable treatment” in recent years) DO NOT and HAVE NOT BEEN EVIDENCED TO resolve nor even efficiently “treat” emotional scars, nor emotionally-rooted behaviors and behavioral problems. This because they do absolutely NOTHING to address the root causes, but simply mask over the symptomatic behaviors with a prosthetic effect! Yet, the immense pressure from the American Medical Association, American Psychological Association, National Institutes of Mental Health, and the many different organizations (to include a few NGO’s) is what helps to keep these unworkable, ineffective treatment options in place as the “standards of medical treatment”.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, volume 5 (DSM-V) and all previous editions came out as the “bible of human psychology”, and the favorite “go-to” book for psychologists and psychiatrists. Every “diagnosis” is attributed to “mental conditions” and “abnormalities” that are identifiable by behavioral characteristics, rather than any reproducible pathology or lab results. What’s even more disheartening: Most of the “syndromes” and conditions are more rooted in emotional scars from past traumatic events and/or other current, ongoing events. As any commonsense-minded individual could find, when one does not address the root problems, but merely masks them with some form of “treatment” or therapy that deals only with the behavioral symptoms, these are problems that are very likely to resurface! Chemical drugs are often only able to be “safely” taken for so long, before they build up to toxic levels in the body, and/or the body becomes resistant to them over time (through tolerance). Most of these drugs ARE toxic to the normal-functioning body. The body will try to do what it does best: Detoxify, and then eliminate these substances from the body altogether. Some of these medical drugs may, themselves, leave behind certain scars, be they physical and/or “psychological” as well.

Where the Failures of the Current Treatment Orthodoxy fail.

What many folks are not asking about, because they may not be seeing the real hidden-in-plain-view problem: “If our psychological medicine is supposedly superior to competing methods and orthodoxies, then why do we see so many examples of where the treated (former, but life-long) patients fall into relapses?” I thought the business of medicine and healing, was about actually healing (and even curing) conditions so that the patients can go on to lead healthy, self-sufficient lives??? – And THERE is the rub, and a prime example, yet again, that today’s “medicine” is not about curing or healing anything. The average psychologist/psychiatrist would want you “mentally ill” and dependent upon their care and advice for life! This is guaranteed profits for the long haul.

Just as much as there are severe conflicts of interest in physical medicine and where it is practiced, so the same can easily be said of “mental health” programs and their clinics. Many individuals who still carry around emotional scars, deeply buried within, are taught to rely on the various drugs and other treatment regimens as their relief. Yet, many still suffer the silence of their own memories, the pains of past experiences they have never been taught to work through and release from. To them, life does not seem to be the way it “should be”. To some, life has become more and more of a history of disappointments and many insurmountable hurdles. The current orthodoxy for treatment options is failing them worst of all.

So what kinds of alternative options are there available to those who are still dealing with “past baggage” and emotional traumas in their lives? That is a question I will do my best to answer in a later post in this series. What needs to be remembered here is: With the appearance of increased acts of spontaneous violence and mass-murders, and the fact that an unworkable system of treatments and therapies seems to always be championed as “The Answer” to everyone’s problems, is it any wonder why some folks would start to see that this treatment orthodoxy is NOT WORKING AS PROMISED?!? The MORE psychological intervention that the state invests in, the MORE we are seeing results that do little to justify the continued orthodoxy for treatment, as we have it now!

IN THE NEXT ARTICLE: “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part III

I want to explore a little bit of the surfacing of repressed memories, and some of the acts that often result from reliving those memories. I would like to relate some of my personal experiences with folks whom I have known for a number of years. Some of them drink. Some of them, quite a bit. There is fertile discussion on the subject of whether alcohol “makes” anyone do anything they normally would not say or do when they are perfectly sober. I seek to dispel this meme from plain examples as observed, and understood.

Until then,

The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part I


What really drives us as sentient beings?

After serious thought and contemplation, AND after a series of tragic events (real or “scripted”),

I decided that I was going to tackle a central issue, and debunk a meme that even most of the “alternative media” and other blogs are missing the point on! I am absolutely amazed that even “educated” folks on BOTH sides of the issues are missing this important fact: Drugs and/or any other intoxicating substance, lacking Consciousness and Will of their own, simply CAN NOT “make” anyone do or say anything! They simply are tools and “pathways” that ease the possibility of someone doing or saying what he/she intended to do (usually something that was deeply buried within mind, and inhibited by the being’s own “consciousness filters”).

In this mini-series,

I am going to take all of you on a journey into the realm of Mind, and the magnificent organ in which it inhabits during this life: The Brain. This is a journey that many millions upon millions of Shamanic practitioners and their clients have taken for a great many thousands (if not millions) of years that our kind has been upon this Earth. This is not from any classes nor any universities. I state, emphatically, here and now, that I have NO college degree and no certificates that “qualify” my statements as “scientific fact” or otherwise. These are simply from my own observations of real-life events and happenings, as well as from my own personal experiences and dealings with other people. In essence, the “establishment” has NOT vetted anything I am about to say, and NO ONE ELSE (on this green and blue Earth) has taught me any of this. This is all from my own learning and experience, as well as from a keen observation.

Therefore,

You are free to judge this mini-series and what in it I present to you, as factual, theoretical, or completely bogus as you may see fit. All I ask of you, is that you at least keep an open mind when reading this mini-series, and withholding your judgments until you have read and understood, what I have presented, how I based my conclusions and observations, and what I have demonstrated as the basis of these writings. These articles DO related to spirituality, medicine, and YES – some politics. This issue is most important to me, and it should also be very important to you, the readers of this blog. IF we are to actually fix what is wrong in this world, humanity’s place within it, and truly regain our personal power from those who lord over us (to our own “shepherded” self-destruction) with it, then we need to re-examine the basis of Mind.

Mind is the seat of consciousness.

When I say this, I literally mean it: Mind IS the seat of consciousness. It is where all things begin. It is where all things are decided well before being done. It is the realm of thought, dreams, images, wishes, desires, and any visualizations of what is to become. It is that “place” which engage ourselves and our surroundings, and also interact with others, to form ideas, goals, and ambitions based upon what we experience, and what we wish to do. The Mind is like the seed, and the fertile plain in which to start its journey of beginnings, growth, fruition, and results.

The Mind is also the “vault”, as in an experiencial “library”, a trove of memories, it is that “place” where we can “store” what we experienced, for later recall and use (such as, in problem-solving). We have the ability to store far more “data” than any advanced computer, even when we may seem to “forget” due to advanced age, deteriorating health, stress, or whatever malady that may interfere with our ability to recall. We do not actually forget. We tend to have trouble recalling something when we say we “forget”. The Mind only “forgets”, when it is intent on doing so, but merely by happenstance. This also takes a conscious effort from a conscious Mind. We have to actually forcibly “erase” that particular thought, and sometimes, this does not work as well!

 The “Layers” of Mind and Consciousness.

I have come to understand that there are several “layers” to the Mind, or more appropriately – Consciousness. These correlate to the various “mind-states” or states-of-mind that are recognized in modern “medicine” and modern “science”. These different mind-states even have names and are recognized by measuring devices’ (Electro-Encephalographs – or E.E.G.’s) readings of brain activity through the various different wavelengths (or Brainwave Frequencies). What much of today’s science has documented as fact, many of our ancestral shamanic peoples already knew for thousands upon thousands of years: The Mind operates at different “states”, as through different levels of consciousness. In other words, this was already ancient knowledge!

The different “mind-states” have different properties and effects, as well as varying degrees of sharpness or “lucidity” of their images and visualizations. These different states can also have their own varying degrees of emotional actions/reactions to the various images and/or recalled experiences that may have actually happened, or are imagined to happen (like, in dreams, and especially “nightmares”). The rest of the body will often (and usually should) respond, even within the different mind-states, to the various imagery being played within the brain, especially if there is are strong emotional aspects or qualities to them. The level of physical activity (that is, many of the “involuntary” functions) of the body, should also operate on a similar level to the level of consciousness in the brain.

The Brain and Mind should not be confused with being the same!

The Mind is that aspect of being where consciousness is to be found and resides.

I do not consider it to be physical at all. I consider it to be an intangible characteristic of the state of Being. That is, it can not be objectively measured by test instruments, standard curricula, or any mathematical formulae. It exists outside of the limiting definition of “physicality”. Just as it exists outside of space and time. Mind can be thought of as an abstract “etheric body” that is parallel to our other “bodies” (like the Physical, Emotional, “Akashic”, etc.), with its own capabilities and “properties”.

The Brain, on the other hand,

Is that physical organ, which is like a very complex “computer”, that is inhabited by Mind. It truly is a marvel in how it was created, and how it functions on so many different levels and complexities! The Brain truly, is a computing device that is beyond anything that could ever possibly be created, with man’s technology or in any laboratory. It is where the Mind is able to interact with this physical existence, through a physical body, and serve as a “link” between this world, and other worlds (or, if you will, from this “ordinary reality”, in and among the “non-ordinary realities”). The Brain serves well as a “bridge” between and among the other worlds, mainly through the realm of Mind.

Fully-Conscious State, or “wide-awake” mind-state:

In this mind-state, one is fully awake and alert to things around him/her. This where the perception-filters and judgment are constantly in use. It is where we do a lot of our active learning, assimilating, judging, measuring, and various other proactive motions and thoughts. We constantly respond to a lot of our external stimuli, sometimes almost instantly, and to those happenings around us. We are aware of the physicality of our existence, and may be aware of a few of the more-subliminal elements in our environment, but not necessarily so. We may even be easily distracted by our surroundings, as opposed to being introspective of our inner state of being. This is the state in which we interact most with the world around us. Everything in this state can be observable and quantified.

The Sub-Conscious State, or otherwise known Semi-Trance State, or “Hypnogogic State”:

It is in this mind-state, that one is not fully cognizant of the physical details of the physical world, but is not exclusively ignorant of it. In this mind-state, one is very relaxed, but still alert to the sounds around him/her, alert to physical stimuli and sensations, smells, and may or may not be acutely discerning of the quality of sounds and stimuli, etc. This is thought to be like a “bridge” between consciousness and the total sub-consciousness. This is a common mind-state, brought about by meditation, prayer, and chants (or mantras) that helps the percipient to relax into this mind-state. The physical body’s various activities may also relax or decrease in “beat” if the percipient is able to truly relax the mind and thought processes. This is also where one can effectively “reprogram” him/herself, and also commence self-healing. One in this mind-state can instill a certain amount of control over body functions, thoughts, images, and emotions, but still be aware of their effects. Many Theraveda and Ayurveda techniques make full use of this mind-state, to bring about desired changes within the individual percipient.

This is also the level of consciousness where beings are very receptive to suggestion, and “programmable” (to a certain extent) by an outside “influencer”, like a hypnotist, psychiatrist, or any other knowledgeable therapist. One in this mind-state should be very much be on his/her guard to the possibility of an externality having undue influence upon him/her. This level is often the preferred level in which to “program” because the judgment and perception filters are partially “submerged”, and therefore not as available as one’s “watchdogs”, like they would be in the fully-awake mind-state! Being that judgment is less apparent, this serves as almost a direct gateway to the subconscious mind-state.

Here’s a neat little table of Brainwave Frequencies I have found on-line from Infinite Minds website:

Between 0.5 and 90Hz are the states and frequencies that comprise the vast majority of our day to day experiences. The table below, breaks these core frequencies down further and shows some frequencies outside of this range that correspond to some more rare and unusual states of consciousness.
Name Frequency Characteristics
Lambda ~200Hz Self awareness, higher levels of insight and information. Tibetan monks that walk barely clothed for days through the snow have exhibited high levels of these. They are difficult to measure and little is known about them. They are carried on the very slow moving Epsilon Waves (<0.5Hz).
Hyper Gamma ~100Hz
Gamma 38 – 90Hz Important in harmonizing and unifying thoughts processed in different parts of the brain. Combines different perceptions. Essential for complex motor processes. Suppressed totally by anaesthetic. Found in all parts of the brain.
Beta (High) 18 – 38Hz Wide awake, alert, focused, analyses and assimilates new information rapidly, complex mental processing, peak physical and mental performance, cannot be sustained indefinitely otherwise exhaustion, anxiety, and tension result.
 Beta (Mid range) 15Hz-18Hz Wide awake and alert behaviour.
 Beta (Low) 12 – 15Hz Also known as Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) – vigilance, reduced mobility, shallow breathing, less blinking, fixed attention and eye focus, enhancing through neuro-feedback has a calming effect.
Beta-Alpha 12Hz Hyper-efficient in processing single tasks as the brain can focus on the details as well as the overall task at the same time
Alpha 7.5 – 12Hz Mental coordination and resourcefulness, relaxation, alert but not mentally processing anything, inward focus, calmness, at ease, deep breathing and closed eyes can amplify alpha wave production, peaks around 10Hz.
Alpha-Theta 7.48Hz Schumann frequency. Stimulates retrieval of memories from the subconscious. This is the natural vibrational frequency of the ionosphere in the earth’s atmosphere.
Theta 4 – 7.5Hz Associated with memory access, learning, deep meditation, sensations, emotions, the threshold of the subconscious, dreaming.
6.2 – 6.7Hz Cognitive activity, sustained attention, low anxiety
4.5Hz Associated with many altered consciousness states.  Shamanic trances, Tibetan mantras and Buddhist chants use this frequency to access trance states
Theta-Delta ~3.5Hz Long term memory access
Delta 0.5 – 4Hz Deep sleep, human growth hormone release, low blood pressure, low respiration, low body temperature. No muscle movement – Reticular Activating System (RAS) shuts this down.
Epsilon <0.5Hz As with Lambda and HyperGamma waves, less is known about these states due to the rarity of observing them. They have reportedly been associated with when state Yogi’s go into when they achieve “suspended animation” where no heart beat, respiration or pulse are noticeable.

So, as we can see, the brain IS a very complex system, and the Mind represents an ever-changing program, “firmware”, interface, and everything else that defines who and what we are – beyond the physical body, in which the Brain is a part of the physical side of being. The individual Mind can exert influence and BE influenced upon and from, within and without. Our “nature” is defined by the perceptions we have built up from our own life’s experiences, and what we have learned (or have been “programmed”).

Once we understand the basics of Mind and Consciousness, we understand that any action or active “doings” require a conscious thought in order for that action to take place. Inanimate objects and/or substances, by virtue of them being “inanimate” and lacking any real “proactive” ability (or lacking the expression of a “proactive” ability), can NOT be the source of an action. In other words, they can NOT “make” or “do” anything on their own. They require a conscious user, as is the case of any “tool”, in order to affect any changes.


In the next article: The “Brain As A Computer”- Why Modern Psychiatry Has It All Wrong! – Part II,

I will delve some into past memories. That is, memories of the past in THIS life, and the subject of repressed memories. Many of our pains, anguishes, and other lingering injuries (both physical-effects and non-physical, emotional) are often the result of or from repressed memories, especially of tragic events and other negative happenings in our lives. Many times, do we see these memories resurface in unexpected times and places, and sometimes in unexpected situations. In some cases, these “flashbacks” can have very dangerous and disastrous results if not dealt with in a manner that safely disempowers them.

I’m Sorry but, Natural is Beautiful! Nature Rules. – Part 5


How “Being Human” really matters, and trans-humanism’s ideologies conflict with the concept of being a Natural Human. (Supremacy-over-Nature lunacy.):


 There seems to be a “mentality” surrounding the trans-humanism movement that is very disturbing to me:

One of: Supremacy over Nature, and over the limits of Nature (as “imposed” upon us in our current existence).

In every historic instance,

A few self-professed masters of science, truth, and higher learning have continued the flawed thinking that: “Nature is imperfect, and it is up to US to refine and improve upon where ‘Nature left off’.” A general paraphrasing and summation of the thoughts and ideas of the privileged few in high academia and industry (interestingly enough), that shows a supreme arrogance and virtual narcissisitic attitude towards Nature, and the present condition of mankind. Through their lenses, the world is all screwed up because of ‘Nature’s Faults’. Never once, is it ever entertained within their high-society circles, that Nature IS quite perfect, and has been functional for over four billion years! The Human species has been one of the most successful in “Being Fruitful and Multiplying”, even in spite of the many harsh conditions around the world (like the driest deserts to the coldest artic reaches), and what mankind has placed upon himself (through imperial wars, conquests, “purges”, etc.). No matter what the circumstance, Man, as a creature and child of Nature, has always managed to bounce back and reclaim his territory and whatever cultures and customs that have survived. All of this, without resorting to “going virtual”, nor “uploading himself, his memories, etc.” to some centralized and hazard-prone mainframe. Man has shown a remarkable resilience, even against himself – in spite of himself, without transforming into something other than a natural creature and inhabitant of this world.

The history of man’s successes and failures is a testament to what mankind has been able to accomplish, for good or for ill, by his own innate, natural abilities. WHERE is the imperfection in all that? Perhaps, adopting an old maxim: “Spiritual Beings, having a Human Experience” makes most sense here. However, most of the Trans-Humanism Movement are, by and large, atheistic. A-HA! Maybe there is something to this whole process, all based on this very narrow-minded thinking. That is, the very narrow-minded thinking that they claim that those of us who believe in a “god”, or believe in any kind spiritual afterlife has a “mental disorder”, or are delusional. Perhaps, this is a “run-off” from the distaste of any form of religion, courtesy of the flawed concepts and teachings of the modern-day “church”??? It seems to me that the greatest contributor to the growing ranks of “atheism”, are most of the modern “churches” and their pernicious and often predatory practices and dogmas. To have a religion is not the threat. To define one’s own life by reference to one or more religions is similar, no threat. The problem lies in the excuses to do ill towards others of differing beliefs, by falling back onto their own religions is the key problem. However, that is not a fault of Nature. The blame lies squarely with those who exert control over their congregations, and the individual participants in the congregations themselves. One CAN be spiritual, without being associated with any of the known, established religions. I suppose that a “virtual existence” would be posited as the answer to this age-old problem? After all, machines have no need for a religion, right? Therefore, such an extensive virtual reality would also have no need (and no place) for any religion or spiritual expression? Now what would this reduce man to: A mere collection of bits, bytes, and patterns of digital data that need a means to travel from location to location?

Then, we have the question of what parts of the “Human Reality” could be successfully and faithfully reproduced?

We often take for granted, the various stimuli and interactions we have with the world around us. One of those, is the ability of sight. If one has never experienced blindness, or any severe impairment of vision, how does one come to appreciate the things he/she sees (or should see) every day? We may wonder what a blind person “sees” or what one could perceive of the world around him/her when clearly, eyesight is not a luxury, nor ability, available to him/her. Obviously, someone like Helen Keller still had the ability to “see” the beauty of the world around her. Whether it from some hidden sense of “sight”, or some other form of knowing, she still became a very wise and appreciative lady, in spite of her lifelong “disability”. The creative abilities of the mind can never truly be underestimated.

We oftentimes do not consider how important our sense of hearing is to us. One who is deaf, or even has severe enough hearing difficulty, may still be able to experience some aspect of life is if he/she still had some ability to “hear”. We all have our favorite songs and music, and even our particular haunts and hangouts where the “ambience” or “atmosphere” includes certain particular sounds and qualities of sounds we may find most appealing. Many of our choice melodies and tunes even invoke memories of things we experienced when we last heard those particular songs. Some of the sounds in our environment may evoke certain emotions and feelings. Can we truly say we have a healthy appreciation for these things, by taking the fact of our ability to hear them, for granted? Would our not ever being able to hear things around us impact what and how think about our world?

We also have our ability to taste that which we consume, and savor every bite – if we so choose to. Many of our world’s finest old-time cooking, and the various cultures that produced those varieties of flavors, have much meaning, on a personal level, to us. I have always found that the wonderful smells of good cooking, had me anticipating the flavors I was about to experience at the table. These wonderful experiences in the culinary art, and in the presentation of these fines, homemade dishes was also what made life worth living for. I have known a few friends who had lost their senses of taste (and sometimes, sense of smell too) due to accident(s) and/or the resulting permanent injury(ies). For one to lose his sense of taste, after growing up most of his life being to savor all kinds and qualities of flavors, all to suddenly lose that ability, must indeed feel that his life has changed dramatically. When we were children, “taste” was one of the sensory means of exploring our world.

Being able to touch and feel textures, reliefs, and various surfaces (and other stimuli, even the incidental [like bug-bites, etc.]) is a very important part of our interactions with the world. Our existence relies very heavily, and is often greatly enriched, by our tactile sensitivity, and the ability to recognize and appreciate this physical sense. We also commonly communicate through touching, hand-shaking, “atta-boy” pats on the back, and even the caressing and “petting” of our dearest loved one(s). The sense of touch is a very personal and inter-personal sensation to us. We may even feel the desire to “feel” the rough bark on a tree, the gravel or sand beneath our feet when we walk, or even enjoy the gentle currents of water in a nearby creek or stream. Our tactile exploration of life in our world does not seem to end, until the day we leave this world. We constantly explore for new sensations, and reunite with the old familiar ones. What would life be like, without being able to actually feel and touch things and other people around us? Would we still be having the fullest of that “Human Experience”?

One thing I enjoy most of all about the season of Spring: The wonderful smells of sweetness of the first flowers! It is one of the biggest reasons why I love the Spring. The smell of the Earth awakening from its long, Wintery slumber, is a reminder of changes, and how Nature constantly reinvents herself, every year. The enjoyment of the olfactory experiences is also one of the reason I love being in a forest of Pines, Spruces, and various other odiferous and aromatic trees and herbs. I love the smell of Pine and Cedar! As such, the world filled with all sorts of smells, is often the first indication for the new day. Here where I live, it is semi-arid conditions, and has plentiful Sagebrush on the plains. Every Fall, when it is late enough for some frost, after a good nighttime rainfall, I can usually smell the fresh scent of Sagebrush in the cool air in the mornings. This always reminded me of that particular time of year (and that I was back in school for another long nine months). To this day, I have long since moved back to this area, and still enjoy the smells of Spring, and Sagebrush smell of the Fall – especially after a night of cooling rains has soaked the ground. What would such a life be like, not ever having to experience the various smells around me, or having the ability gone – after experiencing for a number of years already?

Then, there is the aspect of Extra-Sensory-Perception (for those who acknowledge and/or believe such is possible) or E.S.P. This is a natural ability that ALL living creatures (even plants and microbes) seem to demonstrate. It is amazing what some creatures do as a reaction to some unseen activity, or in response to some otherwise-unknown event or happening. Some of your modern-day psychics (the REAL ones, not all those charlatans who claim to be psychic) and empaths exhibit and/or acknowledge these abilities. Some would say that being devoid of E.S.P. abilities leaves one lacking in experiencing the world hidden from “plain view”. Though today’s “science” refuses to even entertain any discussion, let alone true meaningful, un-biased research into it, there are still many unanswered questions about E.S.P. Interesting that Quantum Physics, Entanglement Theory, and the various related disciplines of science, have been summarily ignored by the “mains” of academia. Even though the Quantum Sciences have been around and discussed and explored for many years, there is hardly any main-stream discussion about them today. Yet, the Quantum Sciences appear to more strongly support the idea of the old adage: “Mind over Matter”, where our very thoughts can also influence surrounding events, as well as be highly receptive to them, even as very subtle events. Would such ever really be possible in a “virtual reality”?

So, as we can see, through the lens of commonsense,

Our basic “senses” of the physical (and perhaps, “aphysical”) nature are very important to us. Not only are there survival needs for them, but also these senses are how we best interact with the world around us. When we are impaired in one or more of the senses, especially when we experienced part of life through them beforehand, we can, for a time, feel as though we “lost” a connection to this existence, and perhaps even lost an ability to further explore our world. Our sense are a very important part of our personal development, and even as part of our spiritual practices (for those who do have spiritual practices, anyway). We highly value our five (or “six”) senses, view them as divine gifts (or at least – important abilities) in which are able to experience our world, and perceive our world. These senses are an extension of our inner Being, and are how we relate to the outside world. Without them, our lives would probably be very different than from what we currently perceive. We base our views, perceptions, and values on the various experiences we have, especially as relating to what have experienced through the senses. Take these away, and you will most likely take away the most important parts of what it means to have a “Human Experience”, and what it means to be alive!

Now, back to the lunacy of “Man vs. Nature”:

It makes no sense that the created, can ever surmount and defeat its creator!

The ostentatious idea that a few “educated” folks (who often call themselves “scientists” and “experts”) calling themselves superior to Nature, is a very dangerous and fatalist position. It is when folks like them, have the temerity to call themselves as better than anything natural or nature, on the mere premise that “science” has ALL THE ANSWERS, and that our “primitive” ancestors new virtually nothing in comparison, who apparently live a life of extreme hubris. It is also telling how science has been simply turned into a tool for exerting more political power, and as a means to put to rest any competing thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and theories, all under the guise of “expert opinion”. Expert Opinion does NOT, I repeat does NOT create scientific laws  nor supercede already-existing natural laws! Mere opinion, regardless of the credentials behind it, is STILL subject opinion without the basis or weight of evidence or fact. Yet, this is what is being used to rule over all of us. The nest step in the amalgamation of all that political power, namely – the ability to control every aspect of our state of being – TRANS-HUMANISM, and the intense effort to build in systems and architectures, in which to reduce and store the sum quantity of mankind, and man’s totality to mere bits and bytes of compuetrized, digitized data.

As I explained a bit in my previous segment of this article series:

Simply digitizing, that is – converting from the natural form and expression – into a series of one’s and zero’s that make up the digital data stream, something as basic as a picture, represents a conversion process that introduces losses of quality and resolution, through the introduction of errors, that vastly separates the digital “copy” from the original. The digital copy becomes flawed, especially over several generational copies, to the point that it simply CAN NOT faithfully and accurately reproduce an excat copy of the original. This is the nature and the limits of the technology. Life, Experiences, and all other aspects that are a part of what we call “Life” (or even existence) can NOT be simply “copied” through artificial means. These aspects can barely even be remotely copied through the prevailing natural means, let alone through arrtifical, technological means. So HOW does one reproduce the original human being, complete with an exact copy of his experiences, likes, dislikes, memories, etc. if we STILL can not accurately (and exactly) reproduce a mere picture of the real thing, from a digital copy?

Then, the long list of how “the smart men” were so much better than nature and natural, and the disasters and still painful messes that have resulted today – all from that way of thinking:

  1. Modern medicine, with all of its nuanced and ever-evolving “drugs” (allopathy) and how many annual deaths result in these united states of America – all from taking, by instruction, prescribed “medications”. Mankind has been served well, for many thousands of years, by what could be found in nature. Even many of the ancient religious and spiritual texts described the many benefits and “miracles” of the various plants and animals that man can use. For many thousands of years, Naturopathy and Herbalism has maintained entire populations and cultures. Yet, there is no “profit motive” to actually curing and healing the people of various diseases and illnesses, with today’s “modern medicine”.
  2. Modern forest and land management practices – How we used to extinguish EVERY naturally-caused fire that were once cyclical and normal – to the point that now the forests have much over-growth to the point of creating a huge, dangerous tinderbox. Resulting in hotter-burning fires (often in excess of 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit) and far more devastation. We also have many invasive weeds, of exotic origin, that were once used to replant burned out grassland areas. Most of these exotic weeds are very aggressive, very hardy, and quite toxic to most of the native wildlife – AND – often contribute to even more-hazardous fire conditions!
  3. Modern Wildlife management practices – Where we now have a serious problem of (re)determining the proper population balance of predator-to-prey animals, include for man’s needs (hunting, food, etc.) – as well as through the questionable introduction of exotic species into the natural ecosystem – without determining first, what other effects this introduction may have there.
  4. Weather Manipulation/Modification Projects – This is by no means absolutely incredible and incredibly dangerous! There is absolutely no reason to ever tamper with the weather and/or climatic patterns, especially by aerially-depositing noxious substances which will eventually end up in the soils, waters, and breathable air shared by ALL living things within a given region/area/etc. This is just absolute pseudo-science hubris at work!
  5. Our Food and Modern Nutrition – Has been under attack and subvert for the sake of profit for many years now. The “Genetic Engineers” seek this path of “improvement” of our many crops for food, foodstuffs, clothing, and basic essentials. Yet, Nature had everything we needed – to include healthy soils. This proliferation of GMOs (Genetically-Modified-Organisms) represents a severe threat to the natural selection of native species, and therefore – the very survival of many species of other plant and animal life on this planet. The degradation and destruction of many colonies of Honeybees is a significant threat to the survival and well-being of ALL of us, all from these GMOs and the various chemical poisons used on and around them. Not to also mention, that these GMOs are all “Intellectual Property” under the current laws! HOW DOES ONE DECLARE “OWNERSHIP” OF AN ENTIRE SPECIES???

So, by just illustrating the previous few example areas where supposed “science” is suposed to answer for the claimed “failings of Nature”,

It comes as no surprise that control, greed, hubris, and various other self-destructive, self-centered mindsets are what bring about this egotistical thinking that a few “smart men” can “change the world for the better” by claiming that they, and their knowledge, are superior to that which created and maintain this existence – and all the beings within it – for perhaps, billions of years. What’s more, every instance that establishment “science” has been used to further incur into Nature and Nature’s God’s realm and powers, are each and every instance that disaster very soon followed. So WHY should I trust anything coming from their lips, and the salemanship of the Trans-Humanism Movement when they say: “This will be the evolution man” – when in reality, I see it more as a destruction of humanity, and destruction of all what it means to be human??? If we can not even simulate, let alone reproduce the ability of our senses, both physical and aphysical, to act and respond in the very same way that our bodies and souls do so, naturally, then HOW can we support pushing man into the merger with machine, or even towards this “singularity” that was never meant to be?

When a few men decide the course of human evolution, or for that fact – taking over ANY act of evolution for anyone, including other animal and plant life, is the day that all Nature, and everything within it, are in serious jeopardy – and these few “scientists” and their enablers need to be shunned and fully divested from any source of public trust, profit, and away from any ability at political influence! This is a must do! If we are to continue onward, and evolve NATURALLY, as our gods intended, then it is time we throw off of this scientific tyranny for once and for all. These so-called experts, are merely either paid “mouth-pieces”, or they really are in the position of setting the course of social policy, and in the effect – setting the course of evolution – to THEIR (ignorant) specifications. Let’s do this right. Throw off Trans-Humanism. Throw off GMO’s and all the attendent uses of all those poisons. Throw off the tyranny of weather control/manipulation and the resulting tight controls on our critically-needed Natural resources.

The “Singularity” is NOT our friend!
