Counterrevolution: Evolving

*                                                                       

The best antidote to fascist Techno-feudalism is living naturally with rational technology!

Here’s real biology from medical doctor experts who care about health:

RNA viruses

Dr. Nancy Banks, author of AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire, from her 2015 interview with Sofia Smallstorm:

When a cell does not have enough electrons to function it begins to lose its ability to communicate with other parts of the cell –and this happens over time [not suddenly]…and means there is some toxicity or some deficiency that [isn’t] recognized… Cancer cells [for example] no longer receive the correct signals…  AIDS is defined as 29 different diseases –but AID [Acquired Immune Deficiency] is a malfunction of a certain kind of white cell… Even in virology they know that RNA viruses are not pathogenic… The theory of HIV is that the virus is in the CD4 [T-cells]…killing them… but the virus has not been found in the decreasing [T-] cells so clearly not what’s killing them. People with HIV/AIDS all have 30 to 60% reduced…glutathione… It’s a deficiency disease.

Sofia: [approx.. min.30] “So, let’s talk about AIDS as an energy deficiency disease… rather than being called Acquired Immune Deficiency, it should be called Acquired Energy Deficiency…”

Dr.Banks:  ”[Remember] that anti-oxidants provide energy, or provide electrons. Things that are oxidative take electrons. So glutathione has the sulf-hydryl group which is key to providing excess electrons in the cell. These excess electrons allow for all the normal functioning of the cell… normal cell division, normal use of the mitochondria…to allow one of the energy molecules, ATP, to develop… But the other important thing that happens in the mitochondria is that there are millions-per-second of…redox reactions [which] are simply reactions where an electron goes from one energy level to another energy level. When that happens, photons…create an electromagnetic wave and these waves are actually part of the energy of the cell, and part of the propagation of what allows the cell to keep itself together. So what happens if you…don’t have enough electrons to float that particular wave of energy in the cell…is you’re going to have…these reduced energy levels which do not allow the cell to function optimally… and that’s what’s going on with people said to have HIV.

…[Ebola in] Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea…just happens to break out where they just found [Aug.2013]..this huge cache of really expensive rocks [diamonds of 300+ karats]… They said Ebola was an RNA virus and the minute you hear [an epidemic] is RNA, you know immediately they’re not telling you the truth. Secondly, what is Ebola? –it’s a type of hemorrhagic fever, but there are many types…in tropical climates…and they’re trying to make people of afraid in temperate climates where tropical [diseases] don’t take hold, so that’s another nonsensical kind of thing, but we don’t really know what people are dying of… We know in this area the [World Health Organization] is testing all kinds of vaccines and drugs… but…the breakdown of the communities…and [civil] war [and dislocation] would cause diseases…and is no wonder…  March of 2014 was the first outbreak of Ebola and August 2013 [was] the announced diamond-mining discovery…

…”I do want to discuss…the RNA viruses. First there are two types of genetic material –DNA which is in our central genome and RNA…which has different [functions]. Now it turns out that it’s possible that the first type of genetic material on earth was RNA and…also almost 45% of the human genome is retro-transcribed…from RNA into DNA…and the term for it is ‘retrotransposons’ [or] DNA which is retro-transcribed from RNA… What it means is that this DNA, …what they used to call ‘junk DNA’…turns out that the more highly evolved a system is, the more so-called ‘junk DNA’ it has… But…this junk DNA actually has information –it’s messenger RNA and has some enzymatic functions… So as the cell functions and is communicating, it packages up these bits of genetic material [that] goes to different parts the cell or from cell to cell. If the cell is breaking down, then these bits of genetic material are transmitted out of the cell…   What they’ve been calling viruses, especially RNA viruses… most is not actually a virus but packaged pieces of normal genetic material…which are functioning the way they’re supposed to.

…”[In the past, from the 1920s], they believed that genes were stationary and didn’t move, transmitting information in one direction and [Barbara McClintock] said ‘no, genes are not stationary…they’re moving all the time’ …So you are evolving in terms of your environment because genes are always responding to…the environment…[and] move around almost like an alphabet making different words… We’re talking about a kind of consciousness at the energetic level… [It’s a dangerous idea] in a materialistic society because we don’t believe in consciousness at this level… The cell is completely quantum… so [knowledge of this] is going to break down the paradigm which is controlling science right now… [but] we’re moving into a whole new realm of how people think and behave.”

“Disease [is] not an entity, but a fluctuating condition of the patient’s body, a battle between the substance of disease and the natural self-healing tendency of the body.” –Hippocrates

*

The authors of The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker and Gary Seldon, chose Hippocrates’s words to introduce Part 3 of their book, ‘Our Hidden Healing Energy.’  The concept of Hippocrates “fluctuating condition of the ..body” was iterated by Antoine Bechamp as ‘pleomorphism’ (or polymorphism) in ‘bioterrain’, a contradiction to his peers promoting Germ Theory, or monomorphism, posited by Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur. I learned originally of Bechamp from Dr. Banks in 2008 when I began working out the many biological problems in poliomyelitis as an environmental disease of radiation and chemical exposure. The Body Electric elevates these ‘bioterrain’ ideas into scientific proof of cellular abilities to ‘dedifferentiate and redifferentiate’ into the perfectly-needed cell types for healing and regeneration under the right cell-level electromagnetic conditions.

 

“I felt as though the temple curtain had been drawn aside without warning and I, a goggle-eyed stranger somehow mistaken for an initiate, had been ushered into a sanctuary to witness the mystery of mysteries. I saw a phantasmagoria, a living tapestry of forms jeweled in minute detail. They danced together like guests at a rowdy wedding. They changed their shapes. Within themselves they juggled geometrical shards like the fragments in a kaleidoscope. They sent forth extensions of themselves like the flares of suns. Yet all their activity was obviously interrelated; each being’s actions were in step with its neighbors’. They were like bees swarming: They obviously recognized each other and were communicating avidly, but it was impossible to know what they were saying. They enacted a pageant whose beauty awed me…   As the lights came back on, the auditorium seemed dull and unreal. I’d been watching various kinds of ordinary cells going about their daily business, as seen through a microscope and recorded by the latest time-lapse movie techniques. The filmmaker frankly admitted that neither he nor anyone else knew just what the cells were doing, or how and why they were doing it… The film was shown at a workshop on fracture healing sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences in 1965.” –pp135-136, The Body Electric, [Robert O. Becker MD] Becker and Seldon, 1985

“In the mid-1960s, solid-state devices were only beginning to hit the market, and one of the PN junction’s most interesting properties hadn’t yet been exploited. When you run a current through [a PN junction] in forward bias, some of its energy gets turned into light and emitted from the surface. In other words, electricity makes it glow. Nowadays various kinds of these PN junctions, called light-emitting diodes (LEDs), are everywhere… but then they were laboratory curios. We found that bone was an LED. Like many such materials, it required an outside source of light before an electric current would make it release its own light, and the light it emitted was at an infrared frequency invisible to us, but the effect was consistent and undeniable.” –p131, ibid.

“Semiconduction, [a]third kind of current, was a laboratory curiosity in the 1930s. Halfway between conductors and insulators, the semiconductors are inefficient in the sense that they can carry only small currents, but they can conduct their currents readily over long distances…  [Albert] Szent-Gyorgyi pointed out that the molecular structure of many parts of the cell was regular enough to support semiconduction… he conjectured that protein molecules, each having a sort of slot or way station for mobile electrons, might be joined together in long chains so that electrons could flow in a semiconducting current over long distances without losing energy…and passed along as information… I  [Becker] theorized that this system…regulated growth, healing, and perhaps other basic processes.” –p93, ibid.

“Ultimately we must relate all we learn about regeneration to a general system of communication among cells, for regrowth is only a special case of the cooperative cohesion that’s the essence of multicellular life…  The control system we’re seeking unites all levels of organization, from the idiosyncratic yet regular outline of the whole organism to the precisely engineered traceries of its microstructure. The DNA-RNA apparatus isn’t the whole secret of life, but a sort of computer program by which the real secret, the control system, expresses its pattern in terms of living cells.” –p182. Ibid. “The pituitary hormone prolactin, the same substance that stimulates milk flow in nursing mothers, seems to sensitize cells to electric current. Then the signal causes nearby cells to dedifferentiate…apparently by changing the way cell membranes pass calcium ions… Steve Smith then confirmed the importance of calcium by preventing dedifferentiation with a calcium-blocking compound, and restarting it with another substance that enhanced passage of calcium ions… Widespread…work on calcium-binding proteins, such as calmodulin, has made it fairly certain that electrical control of calcium movement through cell membranes directs the give-and-take among these proteins, which in turn supervises the cell’s entire genetic and metabolic industry… [The] available evidence suggests that the current flows through the perineural cells [in the myelin] rather than the neurons themselves… These are several types of cells that completely surround every nerve cell, enclosing all the peripheral fibers in a sheath and composing 90 percent of the brain… Not all cells can respond, however…” –p183—“…[but] we reflect on the stakes: understanding regeneration well enough to restore it to ourselves. Certainly skin is electrically active. It’s piezoelectric and pyroelectric (turning heat into electricity) as well as a transporter of ions in wet animals. In the last two decades [1965-1985] nearly all tissues have been proven to produce or carry various kinds of electrical charge. Skin may play an as-yet-unknown role in regeneration… We can infer two things about the control [system]…in relation to the whole organism [;] the guidance can’t be purely local, but must come from a system that likewise pervades the whole body. Furthermore, there are no dedifferentiated cells left over when the work is done; there are just enough and no more… A large body of earlier work has shown that redifferentiation instructions are passed along a tissue arc whose main element is the circuit already established between nerves and epidermis” –p185—“The direction (polarity) plus the magnitude and force (amperage and voltage) of current could serve as a vector system… The electric field surrounding continuously charged cells…would provide a third coordinate…[and] a magnetic field…possibly adding a fourth dimension… Together these values might suffice to pinpoint any cell in the body. The electric and magnetic fields, varying as the current varies with the animal’s state of consciousness and health, could move charged molecules wherever they were needed for control of growth or other processes.” –p186—“As one who has performed too many amputations in his time, I find the prospect of being able to give a patient the real thing instead of a prosthesis tremendously exciting. There’s a good chance…such techniques could even rectify genetic birth defects. Since no one has yet achieved full regeneration…these dreams won’t come true overnight. They aren’t chimerical, however. The remaining problems could probably be solved…[by] basic research. Meanwhile, human capacities for repair of certain tissues are greater than most people realize, and there are already promising ways…” –p187, The Body Electric, 1985

Patent 060606: Get Paid for Being a Thought Slave

*

“The Brave New World of Bill Gates and Big Telecom” is a new post at ChildrensHealthDefense.org, by Robert Kennedy, Jr.  If you want a summary of the A.I. dominated world to come, here it is. 

Quote:

Rewarding Compliance

Microsoft has patented a sinister technology that utilizes implanted sensors to monitor body and brain activity. It will reward compliant humans with crypto currency payments when they perform assigned activities.  The PatentWO |2020| 060606 has gained notoriety and the nickname “World Order 2020 666.” Microsoft describes this device as a “Crypto Currency System” and explains that it is “capable of” using body activity data to mine bitcoin in response to compliance with assigned tasks.

People who agree to install the Microsoft harmful wireless sensors will receive periodic “duty” smart phone instructions to watch a certain advertisement, listen to a specific song, walk down a specific grocery store aisle, or to take a certain vaccine. This chip will collect data from embedded sensors that monitor brain waves, blood flow, and other body reactions. The system will transfer cryptocurrency into the subject’s account after completion of the assigned task.

COVID: DNA Dragnet

  •                                                                

 

COVID DNA Dragnet: A brink-of-reality scenario based on what’s already happening, such as contact-tracing, “rogue DNA databases,” and ideas in circulation posing as alternatives to vaccines and chip implants –at least temporarily. DNA dragnets already occur in policing. It doesn’t take a pandemic for this to realize, but the advantage of  timing and cooperation is obvious. You would take a test, wouldn’t you—to be cleared for work or travel? As I see it right now, our collective loss of liberties puts us one step away from national COVID dragnets to get everyone in the DNA database networks in the name of Public Health. It can happen with or without your knowledge and consent through the surreptitious collection and storage of DNA as it is widely practiced by law enforcement in the U.S.  Police methods regarding DNA have been upheld and re-sanctioned by the Supreme Court. [Maryland, 2012, Chief Justice John G. Roberts issued an order allowing police to continue collecting DNA samples]. Collection methods vary from trash-picking to free dinners, to coerced ‘voluntary’ clearing-of-suspicion and mandatory swabbing on arrest. Methods vary as much as the departments that deploy them. Preface this with facts of “Fabricating DNA Evidence” from digital bioinformatics systems [posted here Aug.2009] and the direst possibilities just start popping –but I won’t imagine those now. Just the facts.  On-the-spot COVID tests are coming –police already have spot tests for DNA—useable at building entrances or any convenient or  especially inconvenient location. The race is on for getting new, fast, portable and cheap CoV tests to market, such as a CoV ‘breath-alyzer’ from the UK.   So– a race for ‘better’ tests? …for the purpose of X@#B&5???? Is the dragnet ON?

  •               Checkpoint COVID*

Police methods: ”Rogue DNA databases” are a subject of special scrutiny by law professor Erin E. Murphy in her 2015 book “Inside the Cell, The Dark Side of Forensic DNA” which reviews issues of disrepute in DNA collection in post 9/11 America. The ‘rogues’ operate outside the law, however they are legal and actually contribute information to larger and better governed databases. The collected DNA, overall and everywhere, is subject to the “doctrine of abandonment”, the same criterion used in medical research. Collection-keeping for police uses are, in theory and practice, almost identical to medical uses, and therefore ‘one step away’ which is the ‘legal authority’ that comes with a national emergency waiver.

*

Telephone-based contact tracing: “The CDC defines a close contact as someone within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes”…but “Once you see a big escalation in cases, contact tracing absolutely cannot work,” Osterholm said. “You will be having contacts by the thousands and thousands and thousands. It’s just not going to work.” https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/05/13/coronavirus-states-scramble-hire-covid-19-contact-tracers/3088014001/

“Contact tracing apps may complement human contact tracing and add efficiency, but they don’t replace all the things you can do training armies of contact tracers”  …“If there is a three-day lag between the test and results, depending on where that person goes, hundreds of people could be exposed — versus if a person is tested and gets the results 15 minutes later, they can begin taking precautions immediately,”…   https://health4everyday.com/2020/05/lost-your-job-consider-becoming-a-contact-tracer-cbs-news/

New contact tracers in the U.S., for now, are entry level data processors, building a database for Public Health. Tracers may also soon adopt police search methods, being done elsewhere, from identities drawn from all possible surveillance sources; security cams, cell phones, credit and debit cards, etc.This goes sideways in all directions really fast.

*

When pandemic COVID policing and law enforcement merge, Public Health has a vast and instant connectivity for contact tracing:

“Across the country, police departments employ sneak DNA sampling methods without judicial intervention of any kind, and obtain biological material… As the head of one government lab said, ‘When you’ve licked a stamp on your tax return you’ve sent the government a DNA sample.’  …The true scope and extent of sneak sampling practices is not known… [but] in many cases police simply keep surreptitiously gathered samples, adding those DNA profiles to offline or rogue databases that can be searched without restriction. Thus both the data and the databases are shrouded in secrecy…  Oddly enough, the law essentially encourages police to act in the sneakiest ways possible, by according the least oversight and protection to DNA samples collected on the sly… [C]urrent law places no limits on the use of the sample. Police can keep those samples indefinitely, test them as they see fit, and store them in their local database for use in future cases—and all without ever notifying any person that DNA has been sampled. The courts that have addressed sneak sampling have almost universally endorsed it as acceptable under the Fourth Amendment…  [A comment made after a failed case argument challenging the sneak techniques] reflects, the attitude of courts toward surreptitious sampling appears to be that the precepts of ‘abandonment’ and ‘misplaced trust’ ought to apply down to the molecular level… [pp170-172]  …

“[If a person] voluntarily gave over his sample, the police were entitled to use it in any way they saw fit…  Rogue databases…have sprung up around the country…[which] can be as simple as Excel spreadsheets or as sophisticated as networked terminals that mimic the national database, CODIS… The New York City database came under fire in 2005 when…litigation revealed that the city maintained a ‘Linkage Database’ that included samples not just from arrestees and suspects, but from crime scene bystanders and Good Samaritan contributors. The lab admitted it had ‘no policy’, procedure or rules for purging profiles from the database, and that there were no restrictions on the database’s permissible use.[p183] Rogue databases also offer the opportunity to store genetic information beyond that contained in the customary national DNA profile… New Mexico maintains a rogue DNA database…shown to be effective at predicting surnames, particularly rare surnames. [p184] The attractiveness of a database that operates outside the law has led genetic entrepreneurs to start offering software that links them all together, creating a…shadowbase…of the federal database. [p185] The goal was to circumvent CODIS, which precluded uploading of samples from persons not charged with crimes or who gave DNA for elimination purposes only. [p186]…To be sure, solving crime is good. But creating a nation of suspects is not.” [p172]

Power Outed: Distancing and Shielding

  •                                                           

 

In 1993 Paul Brodeur, longtime journalist and writer for the New Yorker, published “The Great Power-Line Cover-Up” to expose the experiences of Americans confronting their public health officials  over the hazards of 60Hz EMF transmission. Mr. Brodeur wrote no less than five books on the general subject –two of which I have on my shelves, the one above and “The Zapping of America.” Cancer clusters occurring in substation neighborhoods and elementary schools, especially,  motivated residents to appeal for investigative inquiries to their local governments. They soon found themselves stonewalled in lock-step at every level of government, literally battling for their lives, even though “By..1990…there was a substantial body of medical and scientific evidence to show that exposure to the magnetic fields given off by power lines presented an extraordinary health hazard. The danger posed by substations and nearby high-current feeder lines appeared to be particularly acute.” –p80, The Great Power-Line Cover-Up.

Burying power lines is not enough –according to the book, they must be suspended in oil gel solution inside pipes to safely cancel the hazardous emissions, a lot like the neural net in your brain where fatty myelin carries the energy. Uninsulated buried lines were noted to add to the exposure matrix, being an additional hidden danger.  And then there’s the rest of the gear –and nothing from this timeframe [1990-1994] , the upper limit of Brodeur’s book, deals with cell towers, smart meters, the mass of emergency network repeaters installed post-9/11, 5G and beyond. Today, you need your own PPE for PPE: Personal Protective Equipment for Pervasive Power Emissions.

*

TRY THIS AT HOME –It’s cheap, quick, cuts down personal exposure, and might even be fun. YOU NEED a roll of aluminum fly screen, a staple gun or tacks, pair of cutters, and frames. Frames can be folding screens, large picture frames or hinged panels of any kind like art canvas linked together, which comes in all sizes. Just cut and staple the fly screen onto the back of your frames and you have portable personal RF shielding, no grounding needed. Screen a large ‘picture’ on the indoor side of an outdoor meter, or use a larger folding screen in a room that faces your neighbor’s smart meter. If your frame has a blank front, like art canvas, ask the kids to make a painting or collage –a theme maybe, like “what we did on our COVID vacation.” When the U.S. government finally confirmed after many years that the embassy in Moscow was being irradiated with microwaves, they put up metal flyscreen –just the windows—and it worked (for the big windows) sufficient to reduce illness of the staff. I’ve tested this with meters and it works. Importantly, move any electric gadgets at least six feet from your bed –I used to keep a small plug-in digital alarm clock next to my bed, thinking it safe, until I metered it and found out, surprise, it was the dirtiest electric thing in the room. Six feet away was okay but I replaced it with a simple standard face battery clock that emits no signal. Whatever lightens the load. This is a battle for your mind.

“[A] 1989 study that had been prepared by eight major utilities in New York State, and coordinated through the Empire State Electric Energy Research Corporation… showed that when a three-hundred-and-forty-five thousand [345,000]-volt transmission line is placed in steel pipe filled with oil and buried at a depth of five feet, the strength of the magnetic field measured one meter above the ground over the pipe is only about one milligauss during normal current flow, as compared with magnetic-field strengths as high as sixty milligauss… at the edge of a one-hundred foot right-of-way for an overhead [of the same voltage].”  -p115, The Great Power-Line Cover-Up, by Paul Brodeur, 1993

“In 1964, a Soviet investigator named Yuri Alexandrei Kholodov had reported that exposure to strong magnetic fields produced areas of cell death in the brains of rabbits. Shortly thereafter, other Soviet scientists reported that workers in high-voltage switchyards were experiencing fatigue, drowsiness, headaches, and other symptoms of central-nervous-system distress. During the 1970s, Dr. W. Ross Adey, a neurological scientist who was then the director of the Space Biology Laboratory at the Brain Research Institute of [UCLA], conducted a series of experiments demonstrating that weak electromagnetic fields oscillating at extra-low-frequencies could significantly alter the chemistry of the cerebral tissue of chickens and…cats. During the 1980s, Adey, [as] associate chief of staff for research…[at] Memorial Veterans Hospital in Loma Linda…demonstrated that electromagnetic fields pulsed at the electrical-distribution-system frequency of sixty hertz could inhibit the ability of cultured T-lymphocyte cells from mice to kill cultured cancer cells—a result suggesting that these fields might be acting as cancer promoters by suppressing the immune system.” [p84-85, ibid.]

“[In] 1973 the members of a seven-scientist committee convened by the United States Navy had found the results of several Navy-financed studies of the biological effects of extra-low-frequency [ELF] electromagnetic fields in human beings and animals so disturbing that they had recommended unanimously that the Navy (which suppressed their recommendation) warn a presidential advisory panel of possible danger ‘to the large population at risk in the United States who are exposed to 60 hz fields from power lines and other 60hz sources.’ “ [p24, ibid.]

“[In] 1983…[at] the University of Umea in Sweden [scientists] reported…a significant increase in congenital anomalies among the children of men who worked in high-voltage switchyards… [W]orkers in Sweden indicated that chromosome breaks and aberrant cells are…more common among these workers…[and] that such effects might be caused by exposure to the electrical pulses (spark discharges) that are given off by transformers and other equipment in substations, rather than to the sixty-herz…fields.” [p86, ibid.]

“[In] 1987 [two New York scientists] demonstrated that weak, pulsed sixty-herz electric and magnetic fields similar to…power lines may trigger …cancer by altering RNA transcription…to increase the production of proteins…found in tumor cells.” [p85, ibid.]

“The response of the federal government …[was] budget cuts imposed by the Reagan[Bush] Administration [on] a promising…investigation…under way for ten years at the [EPA] Health Effects Research Laboratory…Triangle Park, North Carolina…[which] was shut down in 1986. Since that time, almost no funding had been made available by the EPA for research in this area, and federal government involvement had been limited to a modest research program financed by the Department of Energy, which (as could be seen from its gross mismanagement of the nuclear plants under its jurisdiction) had shown little interest in protecting the public health”. [p88, ibid.]

COVID: Going to the Dogs

  •                                                    

*

Pet dogs, pet cats, lions and tigers at the zoo—all testing positive for SARS-CoV-2. Wuhan reported that 15% of the housecats tested were positive for COVID-19 antibodies, but no case of illness was reported in Chinese kitty-cats. The first COVID-19 dog case in China, a 17-yr-old Pomeranian, was held in quarantine longer than its CoV-positive owner, and died 2 days after being released, at which time it was negative, never having shown any symptoms. The second COVID-positive dog in China, a pet German shepherd, showed no signs or symptoms and was still remanded to quarantine. The United States, however, is reporting illness; the first U.S. dog case is a pug named Winston who developed a cough –and he’s doing fine now. His owners are a COVID-positive family of three with other pets, and part of the medical community in North Carolina.

*

Five tigers and three lions at the Bronx Zoo are all presumed to have contracted COVID-19 from a single human handler. But this is where the story gets interesting because zoo animals have been subject to long-term observation with scientific analyses –a situation reviewed in my current ‘go-to’ resource for electrosensitivity diseases—The Invisible Rainbow.  The startling awareness at the moment is that Arthur Firstenberg’s 2017 book is a virtual guide to the COVID pandemic.

*

Hang on, because this is an intricate endeavor. I don’t want to bombard you with technicalities as I go through a COVID series of posts. The epidemiology and ‘underlying condition’ causes are essential to know and what it’s all about, including the social, cultural, unconstitutional and likewise. The genetic, biomedical, and biotechnology information about coronavirus and its sequelae correlates in full.  At the same time, on the technical front, I’m just a few steps ahead of my posts in this maze – a-maze-ing. Yeah. That said, Mr. Firstenberg, no doubt a principled 4-year medical student, vegetarian, and activist who dedicated his book to a beloved friend beset with porphyria, has filled a void left derelict by our public health policy professionals. I bought Firstenberg’s book in the first place to help me fill out the composited health effects in my research on influenza and polio, diseases of radiation exposure –he doesn’t at all deal with polio, nuclear industry, or radioactive materials and fallout. Rather sticking scrupulously to electrification and microwaves as we know them, The Invisible Rainbow drops you right in the memory hole.  A memory hole, a very old expression coined from the native Americans, is not where information goes to die of neglect, but where it goes to be found and cherished.

  •                                                             *

*It’s all happening at the Zoo.*

In chapter 11, “Irritable Heart”, Arthur Firstenberg writes, “Whatever environmental factor was affecting human beings in America during the 1930s and 1940s was also affecting all the animals in the Philadelphia Zoo. The Laboratory of Comparative Pathology was a unique facility founded at the zoo in 1901. And from 1916 to 1964 [they] kept complete records of autopsies performed on over thirteen thousand animals that had died in the zoo. During this period, arteriosclerosis increased an astonishing ten-to-twenty-fold among all species of mammals and birds. In 1923, [Herbert] Fox had written that such lesions were ‘exceedingly rare,’ occurring in less than two percent of animals as a…finding at autopsy. The incidence rose rapidly during the 1930s, and by the 1950s arteriosclerosis was not only occurring in young animals, but was often the cause of their death… Coronary heart disease appeared even more suddenly. In fact. Before 1945 the disease did not exist at the zoo. And the first heart attacks ever recorded in zoo animals occurred ten years later, in 1955… [By] 1963, over 90 percent of all mammals and 72 percent of all birds that died in the zoo had coronary disease, while 24 percent of the mammals and 10 percent of the birds had had heart attacks. And the majority of heart attacks were occurring in young animals in the first half of their expected life spans… Diet had nothing to do with these changes… [D]iets were the same at all times between 1935 and 1964… [T]housands of miles away, researchers were finding arteriosclerosis in 22 percent of the animals in the London Zoo in 1960, and a similar number in the Zoo of Antwerp Belgium in 1962. The element that increased most spectacularly in the environment during the 1950s when coronary disease was exploding among humans and animals was radio frequency (RF) radiation.” –pp171-172, The Invisible Rainbow

“Trained as a biologist, Allan H. Frey became interested in microwave research in 1960 by following his curiosity… He left his job at General Electric and began doing full-time research into the biological effects of microwave radiation. In 1961, he published his first paper on ‘microwave hearing’ [which Frey himself could hear]… He spent the next two decades experimenting on animals…to clarify [RF] effects on the auditory system, the eyes, the brain, the nervous system, and the heart. He discovered the blood-brain barrier effect, an alarming damage to the protective shield that keeps bacteria, viruses, and toxic chemicals out of the brain –damage that occurs at levels of radiation that are much lower than what is emitted by cells phones today… The effects Frey demonstrated occur because the heart is an electrical organ and microwave pulses interfere with the heart’s pacemaker. But in addition to these direct effects, there is a more basic problem: microwave radiation, and electricity in general, starves the heart of oxygen because of effects at the cellular level.” –pp176-177, ibid. “The fundamental defect…is that although enough oxygen and nutrients reach the cells, the mitochondria –the powerhouse of the cells—cannot efficiently use that oxygen and those nutrients, and not enough energy is produced to satisfy the requirements of heart, brain, muscles, and organs. This effectively starves the entire body, including the heart, of oxygen, and can eventually damage the heart.” –p187, ibid.

COVID: Accelerating Electrosensitivity

*                                                             *

*

 

I don’t have a TV but I do listen to the radio –NPR precisely– for 2 or 3 hours in the day. It’s the only station I can reliably tune-in, and ever since Sandy Hook when I learned that NPR was the principal partner in that media event, I listen. It’s the EAS (Emergency Alert System) mouthpiece of The Agenda. Our national radio theater is obsessed with the ‘changing world’ scenario of COVID. Radio guest Richard N. Haass, consultant to Bush I, Bush II, and president of the CFR, told the audience that COVID is “accelerating  history” (globalization) and is “not a choice.” Indeed. The “Rockefeller Model” of bottom-up transition is to “make the peaks higher,” or in this case the spikes, as we slide ahead — by the head–  into the Internet of Things.

Here’s a biology and health lesson from The Invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenberg. Everything below is quotation except [bracketts]:

“Porphyrins are light sensitive pigments that play pivotal roles in the economy of both plants and animals…  In plants a porphyrin bound to magnesium is the pigment called chlorophyll…responsible for photosynthesis. In animals an almost identical molecule bound to iron is the pigment called heme, the essential part of hemoglobin that makes blood red and enables it to carry oxygen… Heme is also the central component of…enzymes…in every cell of every plant, animal and bacterium, that transport electrons from nutrients to oxygen so that our cells can extract energy. And heme is the main component of the cytochrome P-450 enzymes in our liver that detoxify environmental chemicals for us by oxidizing them.

“In other words, porphyrins are the very special molecules that interface between oxygen and life. They are responsible for the creation, maintenance, and recycling of all the oxygen in our atmosphere… The high reactivity of these molecules, which makes them the transformers of energy and their affinity for heavy metals, also makes them toxic when they accumulate in excess in the body, as happens in the disease called porphyria… (p136)   The enzymes of the heme pathway are among the most sensitive elements of the body to environmental toxins. (p137).  [In] a world in which toxic chemicals are inescapable, the porphyrin pathway is to some degree always stressed, and only those with high enough enzyme levels tolerate the pollution.

…[In] the early 1990s…Dr. William E. Morton, professor of occupational and environmental medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University…proposed that the controversial disease called multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) was in most cases identical with one or more forms of porphyria. And when he began testing his MCS patients he found that, indeed, 90 percent of them were deficient in one or more porphyrin enzymes… Morton also found that most people with electrical sensitivity had porphyrin enzyme deficiencies, and that electrical and chemical sensitivities appeared to be manifestations of the same disease. Porphyria, Morton showed, is not the extremely rare [and misdiagnosed] illness it is currently thought to be, but has to affect at least five to ten percent of the world’s population. (p138).

“Porphyrins are central to our story not only because of a disease named porphyria, which affects a few percent of the population [perhaps 40-75 million people] but because of the part porphyrins play in the modern epidemics of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes which affect half the world, and because their very existence is a reminder of the role of electricity in life itself… (p139-140)

“Piezoelectricity, a property of crystals that makes them useful in electronic products that transforms mechanical stress into electrical voltages and vice versa, has been found in cellulose, collagen, horn, bone, wool, wood, tendon, blood vessel walls, muscle, nerve, fibrin, DNA, and every type of protein examined. In other words –something most biologists have been denying for two centuries—electricity is essential to biology… It was Otto Lehmann, already in 1908, who noticing the close resemblance between the shapes of known liquid crystals and many biological structures, proposed that the very basis of life was the liquid crystalline state. Liquid crystals, like organisms, had the ability to grow..; to heal wounds; to consume other substances or other crystals; to be poisoned; to form membranes; spheres, rods filaments and helical structures; to divide; to ‘mate’;..to transform chemical energy into mechanical motion.

…”In 1959, Daniel Eley, at Nottingham University, proved that dried proteins, amino acids, and porphyrins are…semiconductors. In 1962, Roderock Clayton…at Oak Ridge [Nat’l Lab] found that photosynthetic tissues in living plants behave like semiconducters. In 1970 Alan Adler, at the New England Institute, showed that thin films of porphyrin do also. (p143-144).

…”Adding thin films of porphyrins to commercially available photovoltaic cells increases the voltage, current, and total power output. (p145). The properties that make porphyrins suitable in electronics are the same properties that make us alive… The secret lies in the highly pigments, fluorescent molecule called porphyrin. Strong pigments are always efficient energy absorbers, and if they are also fluorescent, they are also good energy transmitters… Porphyrins are more efficient energy transmitters than any other of life’s components.

“There is one more place these surprising molecules are found: in the nervous system, the organ where electrons flow. In fact, in mammals, the central nervous system is the only organ that shines with the red fluorescent glow of porphyrins…under ultraviolet light. These porphyrins…occur, however, …not in the neurons themselves, the cells that carry messages from our five senses to our brains, but in the myelin sheaths that envelop them—the sheaths whose…breakdown causes one of most common and least understood neurological diseases of our time: multiple sclerosis. It was orthopedic surgeon Robert O. Becker [‘The Body Electric’] who, in the 1970s, discovered that myelin sheaths are really the electrical transmission lines.

“In a state of health the myelin sheaths contain primarily two types of porphyrins…complexed with zinc. The exact composition is crucial. When environmental chemicals poison the porphyrin pathway, excess porphyrins bound to heavy metals, buildup in the nervous system as in the rest of the body [where illness like polio (acute flaccid paralysis) or skin lesions occur]. This disrupts the myelin sheaths and changes their conductivity which, in turn, alters the excitability of the nerves they surround. The entire nervous system becomes hyperreactive to stimuli of all kinds, including electromagnetic fields.

“In the nineteenth century, anatomists…supposed that [myelin] must have only a…’supportive’ role, protecting the ‘real’ nerves… They named them glial cells after the Greek word for ‘glue’ [as in gliadin and gluten so-named]… From then on, glial cells were thought to be little more than packing material. Most biologists ignored the [finding] by German physicist Rudolph Virchow in 1854, that myelin is a liquid crystal.

…”However…Becker found quite another function for the myelin-containing cells and took another step toward restoring electricity to its proper role in the function of living things. (p146-147) Becker began to pursue the ideas of Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, thinking that if proteins were semiconductors, maybe bones were too, and maybe electron flow was the secret to the healing of fractures… (p148)

“Once having established that the signals that trigger regeneration are electrical and not chemical in nature, these scientists were in for another surprise. For the DC potentials of the body…[that] are necessary…for regeneration…growth, healing, pain perception and even consciousness, seemed to be generated not in the ‘real’ nerves but in the myelin-containing cells that surround them—the cells that also contain porphyrins. (p151)  …The cells that biologists had considered merely insulation turned out to be the real wires. (p152).

“Everyone knows that the brain consumes more oxygen than any other organ…  [An] Italian team confirmed in 2009…that as much as ninety percent of that oxygen is consumed…by the myelin sheaths… (p153)

“In France, liver cancer has been found to be 36 times as frequent in people carrying a gene for porphyria as in the general population. In Sweden and Denmark the rate was 39 times as high, and the lung cancer rate triple the general rate. Chest pain, heart failure, high blood pressure, and EKGs suggestive of oxygen starvation are well-known in porphyria. (p156) …Insulin levels are usually abnormal… The protean manifestations of this disease, capable of affecting almost any organ, are widely blamed on…a deficiency of heme. Indeed, no porphyrin expert has offered a better explanation.” (p157), The Invisible Rainbow, by Arthur Firstenberg, 2017.

COVID: Sunspots and Corona Holes

***

*

If  global pandemic ‘drills’ are staged for safest timing, there is/was no better time than the present.  Embracing the highly credible evidence of Arthur Firstenberg who claims “Influenza is an electrical disease” and proceeds to prove it in his book, The Invisible Rainbow, Firstenberg gives us several hundred years of review on recorded  influenza pandemics. Natural pandemics, he points out, including illnesses other than flu, correlate to active sun cycles in times of solar maximum. We are at this moment in a solar minimum on par with an historic Maunder Minimum that ended nearly 300 years ago.

NASA and NOAA scientists “concurred that solar minimum between [the 11-year] Cycles 24 and 25 will occur in April 2020 (+/- 6 months)” https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/news/solar-cycle-25-forecast-update

The peak of cycle 25 is predicted to arrive in 2024 and continue for 2 years—right on time—but the activity level assessed by the number of sunspots will be less than average, in fact less than half of the 2001 sunspot peak of 250 during cycle 23. Overall, scientists appear to be generalizing a long period of global cooling punctuated by electromagnetic weather disturbances from flares and solar winds emanating from “corona holes.”  Other predictions suggest unstable weather from flares and holes will play havoc with mass telecommunication systems, disrupting Smart grids, navigation, near-earth orbital equipment, etc., but also enthuse about better space travel in our solar system.

*

“A periodic solar event called a “grand minimum” could overtake the sun perhaps as soon as 2020 and lasting through 2070, resulting in diminished magnetism, infrequent sunspot production and less ultraviolet (UV) radiation reaching Earth — all bringing a cooler period to the planet that may span 50 years.The last grand-minimum event — a disruption of the sun’s 11-year cycle of variable sunspot activity — happened in the mid-17th century. Known as the Maunder Minimum, it occurred between 1645 and 1715, during a longer span of time when parts of the world became so cold that the period was called the Little Ice Age, which lasted from about 1300 to 1850.” https://www.livescience.com/61716-sun-cooling-global-warming.html

*

Taking a cue from The Invisible Rainbow and the solar cycle, it seems as if all recent (2005-2009) ‘plandemics’ were set in timeframes of  general safety when natural pandemics would not occur. The geography and timing of modern influenza and polio, so-called contagions for which we are vaccinated, are an essential match for high-energy technology overload– and COVID, too, is lining up with radiation and chemical pollution factors.

*

“In the early 1970s, atmospheric physicists finally woke up to the fact that the earth’s magnetic field was highly disturbed… It had been discovered accidentally in 1958 that VLF [very low frequency] transmissions originating on earth interact with particles in the magnetosphere, stimulating them to emit new VLF waves, which can then be received at the opposite end of the earth. The purpose of the [HAARP] project was to do this deliberately –to inject sufficient quantities of very low frequency energy into the magnetosphere so that it would not only trigger new waves, but that these triggered waves might in turn cause electrons to rain out of the earth’s radiation belts into the atmosphere, altering the properties of the ionosphere for military purposes…  The data…were surprising. First, the signal[s]…were being amplified more than a thousandfold in the magnetosphere before returning to earth… The second surprise was… frequencies that originated [from the broadcast signal returned in] multiples of 60 Hz. The…signal had been altered on its journey through outer space to bear the imprint of the electric power grid…   It appears that harmonics from all of the world’s power grids leak continuously into the magnetosphere, where they are greatly amplified as they bounce back and forth between the northern and southern hemisphere.” –p128, The Invisible Rainbow.

“We live today with a number of devastating diseases that do not belong here… ‘Anxiety disorder’ [neurasthenia], afflicting one-sixth of humanity, did not exist before the 1860s, when telegraph wires first encircled the earth. No hint of it appears in the medical literature before 1866. Influenza, in its present form, was invented in 1889, along with alternating current…  Prior to the 1860s, diabetes was so rare that few doctors saw more than one or two cases during their lifetime… Heart disease…was an illness of infants and old people… Cancer was also exceedingly rare… These are the diseases of civilization that we have also inflicted on our animal and plant neighbors, diseases that we live with because of a refusal to recognize the force that we have harnessed for what it is… [causing] distortions of the invisible rainbow that runs through our veins and makes us alive. It is time that we remember.” –p2, The Invisible Rainbow, by Arthur Firstenberg, 2017

Genetically Modified: Tag, You’re IT

*

*

“The history of biotechnology is not well known. It comes as a surprise to most people to find out that it was not a scientific discovery. Genetic engineering technology was deliberately devised by a small group of people who were looking for a way to manipulate life according to their own designs and for their own purposes. Once they identified genes as a material basis for life, they figured out how to manipulate them, using recombinant DNA technology, and they immediately found commercial uses for their products.

   “The underlying conceit is what MIT science historian Lily Kay calls the “molecular vision of life.” It came about, she says, as the result of the effort of a few scientists, along with their academic and philanthropic sponsors, who had a shared vision about how they could use genes to reshape science and society. Kay says this small group of people laid claim to DNA as a means to an end, once they decided that it was ‘the secret of life.’

   “This new ‘protein paradigm’ reduced the enormous complexity of life down to a few component parts and provided a biological basis for the idea that microorganisms could be engineered. This was the ‘new biology.’  …And it offered those who adopted it a previously unimagined mastery over both nature and society.” –pp8-9, Uncertain Peril, by Clare Hope Cummings, 2008

*

“The desire for patents and profits sweetened the prospects for all concerned. Kay says the long-standing boundaries between what was ‘public’ and what was ‘private’ were erased as corporate and government interests merged… [And] what emerged was a matrix of control. Biotechnology began to dominate scientific research… In the end, it’s been the triumph of what Kay calls the ‘technocratic approach to life.’ …Whether it was intended or not, the way biotechnology was developed has resulted in a relatively small number of players achieving an unprecedented and overarching level of control over life on earth. It brings to mind the words of Justice William O. Douglas, who warned that ‘ as nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there’s a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.’ “ –pp10-11, ibid.

The source of the two quotes above is from the book “Forbidden Gates” by Tom and Nita Horn, published in 2010. The subject and subheading is “How genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, and human enhancement herald the Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare and includes this scenario from Nita: “She asked if the biblical mark of the Beast might be a conspiracy employing specific implantable technology only now available. Her theory was gripping. An occult elite operating behind the U.S. government devises a virus that is a crossover between human and animal disease –let’s say, an entirely new and highly contagious influenza mutation [supposing the 2010 publication was directly referencing the H5N1/H1N1 ‘event’ over years 2005-2009] –and intentionally releases it into the public. A pandemic ensues, and the period between when a person contracts the virus and death is something like like ten days. With tens of thousands dead in a few weeks and the rate of death increasing hourly around the globe, a universal cry for a cure goes out. Seemingly miraculously, the government then steps forward with a vaccine. The only catch…given the nature of the animal-human flu, the ‘cure’…rewrites one’s genetics so that the person is no longer entirely human…[and by] receiv[ing] this antidote would become part ‘beast’…thus…’Mark of the Beast’

At the time of reading Forbidden Gates, shortly after publication, it was with full awareness that a bioinformatics database called BEAST already existed. It’s in the flu notes, posted on this blog. Biblical ‘scripting’ is, to me, the ominous and perversely-expressed harbinger of the spiritual warfare reality.

As far as I’m concerned, a mass of human tagging began with the 1950s polio vaccines and the introduction of the monkey virus ‘contaminant’ SV40, simian virus #40, in the Salk and Sabin formulas. It’s not a gift of altruism that ongoing worldwide polio vaccination has been the goal of Bill Gates and the foundation, though current vaccines are SV40 free. The theory is basically this: Post-Hiroshima biological surveillance and data collection was mandated to the medical team of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission (ABCC) on the suggestion of 100 years duration. A multigenerational biological tag was the only means then available, lacking nano-device alternatives, and its expected implementation was imminent after 1950 when the ABCC organized for its longterm assignments. Nuclear testing, which began in Nevada in 1951, expanded the mandate to the U.S. population and beyond. Polio-vaxxed Boomers and their descendents are a potentially trackable demographic. Some military-use nonpolio vaccines of the era also contained SV40. Adding to this view is code for the infective SV40 particle, the T-antigen short form –T-ag.  Tag, really. Is that nerd humor?, an ominous and perversely-expressed harbinger?— or just in-your-face who-doo for future surveillance in ABCC’s project management? The ABCC, of course, is long defunct, but SV40 rages on, fascinating as a subject in the development of  biotech. For now, as a model of tagging derived entirely by my own thoughts on it, I’m going with ‘in your face’ and on the hook. The journey of SV40 through research labs as a ‘recombinant’ gene factor parallels the growth of the biotech industry.

*********************************

Who owns your DNA? According to Claire Cummings 2008 book, Uncertain Peril, “Twenty percent of the DNA in the human body is now patented. Many of the genes in your body are already owned by someone else, most likely a pharmaceutical company or an institution. The Regents of the University of California, for instance, own eighty-nine human genes.” –p75, ibid.  Little doubt attends my speculation that an increase in holdings over the last decade put aggregate institutional ownership of human DNA at or near a  majority of stock—live stock. Somehow, between the first successful 1980 “patent on life” case for a genetically-engineered bacterium and the present, ownership of your essential constituents have been transferred to private parties. Quantitatively speaking, only about 10% of ‘you’ is human anyway, long provoking the question of “what is human?” and, by extension, “what is ‘yours’ and ‘not yours’?,” and “when does ‘yours’ become ‘not yours’?”

So far, every time I check into it, the human DNA legal trend is “not yours” and when applied to medical treatment definitely “not yours.” The immune system wrestles with this every day, tasking “self” and “not self,” so I’ll try to work out a parallel here.

*

In the meantime, an example of “not yours”:  “…when the Supreme Court ruled on the [patent] case of Ananda Mohan Chakrabarty, a scientist working at General Electric who’d created a bacterium genetically engineered to consume oil and help clean up oil spills…[his] lawyers argued that since normal bacteria don’t consume oil, Chakrabarty’s bacteria weren’t naturally occurring –they only existed because he’d altered them using ‘human ingenuity.’ Chakrabarty’s victory opened up the possibility of patenting other living things, including genetically modified animals and cell lines, which didn’t occur naturally outside the body. And patenting cell lines didn’t require informing or getting permission from the ‘cell donors.’ “   The bold-type emphasis is my addition to the words of Rebecca Skloot from the book ‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’ whose cervical cancer tumor specimens became the famous ‘immortal’ HeLa cell line in 1951.  Skloot mentions another cell line called ‘Mo,’ harvested by a UCLA doctor in 1976 from the abnormal spleen of a patient named John Moore who suffered from hairy-cell leukemia. “A normal spleen weighs less than a pound; Moore’s weighed twenty-two.” –p199  Some years later, during his ongoing medical follow-up which involved long distance travel to UCLA, Moore’s suspicion was aroused when he attempted to change the arrangements of his medical visits to be closer to home. Accompanying offers of plane tickets and a stay at the Beverly Wiltshire hotel, was  “a  new consent form that said: ‘ I (do, do not) voluntarily grant to the University of California all rights I, or my heirs, may have in any cell line or any other potential product… developed from the blood and/or bone marrow obtained from me.’ “   He circled ‘do’ but at his next visit when the consent form was presented again he circled ‘do not’ and soon learned that ‘Mo’ was reaping a windfall. In 1984 Moore filed suit against the physician and UCLA. His doctor, patent in hand, stood to personally gain $3.5 million from the cell line which “at that point [had] its market value estimated to be $3 billion…  Scientists are quick to point out that John Moore’s cells were exceptional, and few cell lines are actually worth patenting. Moore’s cells produced rare proteins that pharmaceutical companies could use to treat infections and cancer. They also carried a rare virus called HTLV…which researchers hoped to use to create a vaccine that could stop the AIDS epidemic. Because of this, drug companies were willing to pay enormous sums to work with his cells.” –pp201-202, ibid.

Moore lost on the first round, then appealed in 1988 and won. His doctor subsequently appealed and won the ‘right to use patient tissues’ and finally “Nearly seven years after Moore originally filed suit, the Supreme Court of California ruled against him in what became the definitive statement on this issue: When tissues are removed from your body, with or without your consent, any claim you might have had to owning them vanishes… [The court] said that ruling in Moore’s favor might ‘destroy the economic incentive to conduct important medical research,’ and that giving patients property rights in their tissues might ‘hinder research by restricting access to the necessary raw materials’…” –p205, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot, 2010

*****************************

The roots of this blog are mentioned in a post called “A Few Words About the Agenda” from November 2009:

“….I started this blog in July09 in the midst of a “pandemic” that is not happening because of a deep foreboding that the Controls being sought are nearly in hand. There is no rational/logical explanation for things like mandatory vaccines, forced healthcare, carbon-footprint permits and the like when it flies in the face of experiential science. What else can it be but the consolidation of the Plan? Every article here in my blog is telling an aspect of this story; One story about One World, where everything coalesces under…the oligarchy…[until] they own you… In ‘their’ future.. ‘we’ are to be made less than fully human to eliminate their competition…  today achievable in physical fact.  How will we be ‘less than human’ –perhaps by becoming programmable DNA computers. Take a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_computing

…. The impetus in DNA computing, according to Ehud Shapiro of the Weizmann Institute speaking in 2003, is to find a “molecule that can recognize, cut and join DNA sequences in specific ways”, what he suggests will be “designer enzymes…that can do things and go to places that silicon can’t –such as inside our cells to make and control drugs.” http://www.usc.edu/dept/molecular-science/index.html . Phage and virus already do this naturally –enter our cells and install a program– so the question is begging about the ability of virus-like ‘nano-machines’ harnessed for the activity of synthesizing specific enzymes to run an assembly program. If you were going to ‘assemble’ a DNA computer capable of replicating and replacing its own parts, wouldn’t the ideal machine have an immortal and unlimited source of those parts? Cancer cells are just such an immortal cellular anomaly. A pharmaceutical-generating program that can control cancer cells in the self-performance of chemotherapy has the capacity I would think of becoming an immortal DNA computer, capable of [reproducing] itself with endless ‘perfect copies’ while keeping the overproduction of those cells in check…  Cancer cells may become the needed raw material for constructing immortal bio-bot computers. The staggering potential of DNA computing forecast by Leonard Adleman is that “One gram of DNA can store as much information as a trillion compact discs”. “What’s more”, states the text of the USC webpages above, “myriad DNA molecules can examine every possible [pathway] at once, rather than one at a time as in a conventional computer”. With this much incredible promise, is it likely that the DNA computing science would take a backseat? If I’m on the right track with this projection, a lot of agendas appear to be satisfied. I’m over my head here…  Explanations for the presence of sophisticated and nano-sized materials in food, vaccines and chemtrails are not forthcoming and yet they are turning up in products of every description. At the atomic level, organic, inorganic and cellular materials have new and different properties, most informative of which comes from electrochemical experiments.  As in the past, this new technical platform will be maximally spun-off and exploited in some ultimate pursuit of global mastery… Our bodies will become factories for their bio-bots.

2004– “Recently, simple molecular-scale autonomous programmable computers were demonstrated… allowing both input and output… Such computers, using biological molecules as input data and biologically active molecules as output, could produce a system for ‘logical’ control of biological processes… As proof of principle, we programmed the computer to identify and analyze mRNA of disease-related genes associated with models of…cancer, and to produce a single-stranded DNA molecule modelled after an anticancer drug.” http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v429/n6990/abs/nature02551.html

”The goal of the government should be one level of health for all the people” —Florence Mahoney, 1965, reference on p209 of Noble Conspirator, Florence S. Mahoney and the Rise of the National Institutes of Health, by Judith Robinson, 2001

This quote is but one of the select bolshevist utterances of the incomparable ‘health’ lobbyist Mrs. Mahoney. Her principal endeavors focused on population control, mental health treatment and social engineering. The span of her nationally influential activity ranged from the 1940s to the ‘90s and “by the year 2000, the National Institutes of Health had become indisputably the world’s leading research entity across the spectrum of biomedicine.” –271, ibid.

The 2009 H1N1 pandemic-that-wasn’t brought in the government initiative called One Medicine, a cooperative paramilitary organization enlisting MDs and DVMs to jointly respond to public health issues. In essence, the One Medicine goal is to devise common protocols of treatment for humans and animals –symbolically, if not actually, leveling the livestock. In biotechnology this is possible because of  genetic ‘homology’, the cross-species similitude of gene chemistry. In natural settings, homology in viruses, viral vectors and host receptors leads to transmission –and in the case of infectious transmission from animals to humans, known as ‘zoonosis’ (zoh-ahn’-nah-sis). I’ll have to check if ‘humanosis’ or ‘homonosis’ is in the lexicon yet. We’re certainly making the animals we love and depend on very sick with ‘public health’ protocols.

Any government that determines the nature of my human physical matter, whether inside or outside the body, to be “raw material” for “important” economic exploit represents neither myself nor the authority to which I submit.

Industrial GMOs have a running track record in agriculture, the subject of Uncertain Peril, sufficiently parallel in models of business and ethics to apply to human engineering. I put in the bracketed [noun] substitutions to make a point:

“There are five solid reasons that genetic engineering is not right for agriculture [medicine]. One: it’s bad science. It was developed on the basis of flawed assumptions which have since been discredited by the scientific community. Two: it’s bad biology. It was deployed without regard for its potential for genetic contamination and risks to human health. Three: it’s bad social policy. It puts control over seeds [medical treatment] and the fundamentals of our food and farms [healthcare] into the hands of a few corporations who have their own, not our, best interests in mind. Four: it’s bad economics. After billions of dollars and thirty [now forty and more] years, only a few products have been commercialized, and they offer nothing new. No one asked for genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and given a choice, consumers would reject them. Five: it’s bad farming [healthcare]. GMOs don’t address the real issues plaguing agriculture [humans]; they’re designed to substitute for or increase the use of proprietary weed and pest [drug] control chemicals. Patented and genetically altered seeds [pharmaceuticals] perpetuate the very worst problems of the industrial food [health] system, and they are undermining the autonomy of the farmers [doctors] who use them.”

Underlying Causes and Coronavirus

*

‘You Are What You Eat’ was a government information campaign of the 1970s when biotech was gaining ground in agriculture. The learning program put an emphasis on the benefits of whole grain –certain of which are the gluten/gliadin containing wheat, rye, and barley which we now know compromise the blood-brain barrier, as the glyphosate (Round-up, Agent Orange) herbicide then being introduced compromises the gut by inducing lesions. (That’s subject for another post). The point here is that my earlier influenza research demonstrated that the microbiologists of the last century discovered toxic gut bacteria in the lungs of flu patients, determining it to be the cause of respiratory infection.

Plus this: “…In this account of the discovery of influenza [virus, c1933], researchers at ”Mill Hill” near London accidently infected their lab ferrets with their own flu. [humanosis?] At the time they were experimenting with ‘distemper’, developing a vaccine for the flu-like illness in dogs.”   –see the margin list for “Influenza Special”. If there’s a relationship of gut bacteria to respiratory infection in dogs, I didn’t look for it then, but the common viral agent of contagious gastroenteritis in dogs is coronavirus.  From the Merck Veterinary Manual, 1991 edition: “Coronaviral Gastroenteritis, A highly contagious GI disease of dogs of any age… Canine Coronavirus (CCV) is an enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus antigenically related to the feline coronaviruses (feline infectious peritonitis virus and feline enteric coronavirus) and to transmissible gastroenteritis virus of pigs… Lesions in experimental infections usually are not severe…[but] Naturally occurring cases, especially those with mixed infections, can have severe lesions with frank hemorrhage in the intestinal mucosa…” The 1991 Merck Vet. lists only four species with economically significant coronavirus problems: dogs, cats, pigs and turkeys, but if there are clues in microbe-hunting about CoV transmission, mixed-infections, and treatment, the recommended treatment for Kennel Cough in dogs is vaccines for distemper and parainfluenza (or paramyxovirus infection, PMV) –respiratory infection in turkeys, “which suggests the respiratory tract may be the initial site of infection.” –p1564, ibid.  Bird flu? Do turkeys cough? “The transmission between turkeys is unclear,” so I’ll let that go for the time being. However, turkeys take a wallop with coronavirus! “Coronaviral Enteritis of Turkeys: An acute, highly contagious disease of turkeys characterized by sudden onset… Mortality may be high… The causative agent is a coronavirus, but the clinical disease is complicated by other intestinal viral and bacterial infections… Cold weather, especially freezing, increases survival of the virus.” –p1554.  We’re being told that too, yes? Must be One Medicine on the job. No vaccine for turkeys, says Merck…just quarantine, social distancing, disinfection…  A little global warming would be handy.

A  very different outcome of coronavirus in pigs is the ‘causal agent’ of a frightful disease called ‘vomiting and wasting disease’ (VWD), otherwise known as Coronaviral  hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV) –a brain infection—where “Neonatal pigs become dehydrated, cyanotic, comatose and die…[If] the virus enters a susceptible herd with neonatal piglets, morbidity and mortality may be high… Replication first takes place in the nasal mucosa, tonsils, lungs, and to a very limited extent, in the small intestine [after spread by aerosol]. From these sites of entry, the virus invades…the peripheral nervous system and subsequently spreads to the entire brain stem…” –pp388-389, ibid. I’m posting this not to scare you but to show a greater range of coronavirus. In North America, western Europe, and Australia, where HEV occurs, “Pigs are the only natural host.” This is the kind of information that provokes my attention for bioweapon potential –but ‘bioweapon’ within the meme of low-intensity conflict scenarios. Our ‘common cold’ coronavirus is everywhere.

 

Turn back the clock for a minute on the official U.S. response to SARS in May 2003:

…”Thank you, Mr. Chairman and members of the Committee. I am Jerome M. Hauer*, Acting Assistant Secretary for Public Health Emergency Preparedness. I appreciate this opportunity to share our Department’s response to the SARS virus within the context of public health emergency preparedness… we have reason to be encouraged by the response to SARS for several reasons. First, the identification of the agent that causes the disease was completed in record time. CDC identified the coronavirus within a few short weeks of receiving the first specimens… We are partnering with industry to organize a full-court press on vaccine development… The Command Center maps the distribution of SARS cases across the globe with geographic information system software for use during our planning discussions. The Command Center did not exist a year ago – it became operational last November [2002]… I recently co-chaired a meeting of the Council of Governments with Mike Byrne of the Department of Homeland Security to bring together health professionals from across the national capital region to aggressively prepare for an outbreak of the SARS virus here… the Department is implementing an aggressive research and development program to develop and acquire biological, chemical, nuclear and radiological countermeasures… The most exciting news in the R&D arena is, of course, Project BioShield, announced by the President on February 3, 2003.” http://republicans.energycommerce.house.gov/108/Hearings/05072003hearing917/Hauer1433.htm

*Jerome Hauer, you may remember, was on hand for commentary to major NYC TV media the morning of 9-11, providing the tip that ‘Osama bin Laden’ did it. Hauer was then an officer of New York’s emergency operations center and pKroll security, but his earlier career was in bioweaponry. He directed the neighborhood pesticide-spraying campaign against West Nile Virus when it emerged in NYC in 1999.

*

To our sorrow, the legal decoupling of “healthcare” from the biotech industry never happened. It could have, should have, happened long ago in the 1950s and ‘60s amidst the Cold War when advancing biotechnology was pressing countermeasures (like Hauer’s B-C-R protocols) into military operations. The subsequent infiltration and takeover of biotech in medicine forces the euphemism of “healthcare” with the still added integration of I.T. –Information Technology. As I see it, all a very advanced and comprehensive outcome of radiation biology, the mother of modern genetics.

*

In June of 2013, Justice Clarence Thomas (former Monsanto lawyer) wrote the decision on human DNA for the US Supreme Court that, “We hold that a naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated,” following more than forty years of neglect while the industry flourished. At stake was the monopolization of a natural gene by one patent holder, able to control its use in research and medicine. The decision opened the pool and, interpreted by the industry, “also said that synthetic genetic material could be patented” –synthetic human DNA. Four years before this decision, August 2009, I posted “Fabricating DNA Evidence” quoting “Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence…if they have access to a DNA profile in a database… without obtaining any tissue from [a] person. ‘You can just engineer a crime scene,’ said [Dr.] Dan Frumkin… ’Any biology undergraduate could perform this.”

*

“Synthetic biology is unregulated and self-governing. No one knows what could occur when synthetic organisms are intentionally and unintentionally let loose into the environment. Creating genes that don’t exist in nature is a dangerous business and there is no way to predict how they will behave in living systems.” –p266, Foodopoly, 2012, by Wenonah Hauter (Food & Water Watch)

*

So, while I’m ‘CoVing-in’ with extra spare time, I’m dwelling on the tagging, tracking, and surveillance milieu of our present situation juxtaposed with notions of human rights because biotechnology is rewriting the genes of our Constitution and incapacitating the judgements therefrom:

 

FYI, The Human Rights which we extend around the globe, and teach to students of ‘public health’, “include but transcend the conventional classes of human rights…in a remarkable variety of international human rights and humanitarian laws… Never before…has there been such universal recognition of the claim that everyone…is entitled to rights—in particular, what have been aptly called ‘life integrity rights.’ These include the right to life, the right to personal inviolability—not to be hurt; the right to be free of arbitrary seizure, detention, and punishment; the freedom to own one’s body and labor; the right to free movement without discrimination; and the right to create and cohabit with family.” –p39, War and Public Health, 2000 updated ed., editors Levy and Sidel.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [mankind] are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights… [and] that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it… Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly, all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms of government to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and to provide new guards for their future security. The history of the present… is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having, in direct object, the establishment of an absolute tyranny… To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world…” A Declaration by the Representatives of the United States of America… July 4, 1776

Germ Games

“Germ Games”, said Bill Gates in 2009, should replace “War Games”.  In 2010, Gates put his money where his mouth is:

*January 29, 2010 [news] “Gates Foundation Pledges $10 Billion to Vaccine Research” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/29/AR2010012903953.html  “DAVOS, SWITZERLAND — The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will donate $10 billion over the next decade to research vaccines and make them available to the world’s poorest countries, the Microsoft co-founder and his wife said Friday…’We must make this the decade of vaccines,’ Bill Gates said in a statement.”

February 2010 — Bill Gates: “If we do a really great job; on new vaccines, healthcare, reproductive health services –we could lower [population] by 10 or 15 percent…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WQtRI7A064&feature=player_embedded

COVID-19

March 16, 2020 –The AP* print news out of Seattle, published in my town paper the next day on March 17, is that Microsoft’s home city is delivering the first COVID vaccine (called mRNA-1273) to be tested on humans in the U.S.  Four volunteers were injected, according to the article, by Kaiser Permanente’s Washington Research Institute—two of whom were described as (#1) “an operations manager at a small tech company” and (#2)”a Microsoft network engineer”.  The other two were not described. The experimental vaccine is targeting the CoV ‘spike’ protein: “The idea: The body will become a mini-factory, producing some harmless spike protein.”  They hope. The new “vaccine candidate, code-named mRNA-1273, was developed by the NIH and Massachusetts-based biotechnology company Moderna Inc…”  And, P.S., the article says, “There’s no chance participants could get infected because the shots do not contain the coronavirus itself.”  The vaccine is attempting to get cells to manufacture only the “harmless spike protein” on the grounds it will prep the immune response. Dunno, folks.  The sophistication of new mRNA vaccines, in experimental use to control cancer, suggest to me that the ‘platform’ is tailored to nanodevices –I’m in for  lessons.

*AP article by Lauran Neergaard and Carla K. Johnson

Moderna Inc. in Cambridge, MA,  has “strategic alliances…[ with various biotech/pharmaceutical companies], Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/MRNA/profile    …for sure!

The notable CoV Boston outbreak which occurred after a hotel seminar and produced about 8 cases, occurred among employees of another Cambridge biotech firm,  Biogen.  Biogen was a Cambridge biotech start-up pioneer,  founded by  Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Philip A. Sharp, whom I discovered as an SV40 researcher, the monkey virus contaminant in the Salk and Sabin vaccines of the 1950s-60s, in the field of recombinant DNA. Biogen was established in 1978 when the recombinant DNA controversy reached a peak in the public eye. Sharp got his Prize later in 1993 for discovering  methods of RNA-splicing.

RNA splicing

RNA,  ribonucleic acid, is the base of our complement  gene system , coded to carry the template in our cells for the production of more RNA, DNA and proteins. In a string of RNA codons, some noncoding sections may exist which can be subject to removal in a process of “cut and paste” editing, either by natural means or by genetic engineering,  producing new variants of messenger RNA (mRNA), the blueprint instructions.

Spliced mRNA from viruses have a prodigious range of functions as tools in molecular construction, modified to improve their utility :  .… “our new method is expected to rapidly expand our knowledge on RNA splicing mechanisms for a wide range of viruses.”   https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-21190-7 This particular article from nature.com, by chance, has an all-Chinese team of scientists.

 

Corona virus has (in other citations of many years ago) popped up as a useful ‘cleaving’ agent for bioengineers.  If believing someday we will all be ‘mini-factories’ in the post-industrial nano-bio paradigm, seeding us with their raw materials is inevitable like rain falling from the sky.  They’re testing us for uptake and the language is frank.

 

…And then… we merge with the Internet of Things. We’re doing it now.

I recommend the brief page on the Sabin Vaccine Institute, posted in 2010, linked above at www.polioforever.wordpress.com  and supported by the Gates Foundation. On the page:

“Founding Chairman of the Sabin Vaccine Institute H. R. Shepherd – expert on aerosol medication; author of “Aerosols : Science and Technology”; founder of Aerosol Techniques Inc (renamed Armstrong Pharmaceuticals, acquired by Medeva PLC)–  had this to say on the receipt of a $100 million gift from the Gates Foundation :

“Vaccines are the most powerful tool available to equalize the health of human beings in every corner of the world” he said. “Enlightened leaders understand the power of vaccines to help bring peace and opportunity to the most troubled places in our world. Vaccines are the microchip that will revolutionize healthcare”  http://www.sabin.org/files/SVR_No1_Vol2.pdf 

*The Gates, we know, is heavily funding geoengineering. It also holds stakes in the Svalbard seedbank.

 

The Bottom Line is that biology models ‘template’ all of our systems. Too many nonadaptive and artificial inputs in any system will crash it eventually, even if the ‘small stuff’ appears tolerated –what’s the saying?—it’s all small stuff. Watch out for that small stuff. It’s the foundation upon which you live.

Threat Tech — Neuroweapons

JUNE is national Mental Health Month
*
“according to a September 2015 article in Foreign Policy, ‘The same brain-scanning machines meant to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease or autism could potentially read someone’s private thoughts. Computer systems attached to brain tissue that allow paralyzed patients to control robotic appendages with thought alone could also be used by a state to direct bionic soldiers or pilot aircraft. And devices designed to aid a deteriorating mind could alternatively be used to implant new memories or to extinguish existing ones, in allies and enemies alike.’ …”
*
*                                                                BrainBulb2
Two years earlier, in September of 2013, “the Guardian newspaper in London published an article which explains that brain drugs will likely be replaced by brain circuit manipulation; this is a huge change from drug research to brain circuit research which is now heavily funded and taking off.
   ” ‘New technologies such as optogenetics suggest that even finer control of brain circuits may be possible,’ [writes] Vaughan Bell, who is a clinical psychologist and visiting researcher… ‘While deep stimulation involves stimulating the brain with electrical currents, optogenetics involves injecting neurons with a benign virus that contains the genetic information for light-sensitive proteins. The brain cells then become light sensitive themselves and their activity can be controlled with millisecond flashes of light sent through embedded fiber optic cables. Until now, this has only been demonstrated in animals but there are high hopes that it could lead to precisely controlled treatment in humans…’ “
*
Optogenetics is essentially the study of light-sensitive proteins called opsins. Dr. Karl Deisseroth of Stanford, developer of the science of optogenetics and a practicing psychiatrist, found his experimental opsins in green algae: “In the summer of 2004, Deisseroth opened his own lab at Stanford and hired a brilliant PhD student named Feng Zhang.. to do the delicate work of introducing the pond-scum opsin into a brain cell. The opsin would have to be smuggled into the cell using a virus, but at a concentration that would not kill the neuron…  Zhang chose a benign lentivirus…[and] After a year of experiments, the team had created the world’s first reliable technology for generating light-sensitive neurons that signaled at the speed of the brain… Finally, they devised a means for attaching small bits of DNA to the opsins, which acted like a password, insuring that they would be produced only in the correct cells. Then they had to figure out a way to deliver flashes of light to regions deep inside the brain, and settled for a fiber-optic wire attached to a laser diode. In late 2005, they began..tests to see if they could control behavior in mice”

(some explanation will be required here)
*
In his New Yorker magazine interview linked above, however, Dr. “Deisseroth warns that [human psycho-] therapies face considerable hurdles owing to the unknown effects of injecting viruses into the brains of living patients. But..some clinicians are already looking at possible treatments in the peripheral nervous system –the nerves that go to the arms and legs.” 
*                                                                                                                    Karl Deisseroth Karl Deisseroth
Dr. D. went on to invent another breakthrough brain-tool technology because “X-rays and other techniques that use light to penetrate the tissues don’t work because of the brain’s high volume of fats and water, which cause light to disperse… [To his wife] Deisseroth said something about how great it would be if one could render a brain completely transparent… In his office, Deisseroth wondered if he could displace the fats and the water with a scaffold that would support the [nerve tissue] wiring but allow light to penetrate –perhaps a hydrogel, a water-based polymer used to support cells in human tissue repair. He opened a ..notebook and began to fill pages with.. ideas for what he called an ‘endoskeleton’ that would ‘digest away’ the fats and the water… The idea became CLARITY, an acronym for ‘Clear Lipid-exchanged Anatomically Rigid Imaging/immunostaining-compatible Tissue hYdrogel’. CLARITY is Deisseroth’s second great contribution to neuroscience –a method for rendering cadaver brains completely transparent save for the perfectly intact cells and nerve fibers… It has since become a standard tool.. around the world.
   “…The technology has been adopted..[and] endorsed by the BRAIN Initiative, to make a complete map of a mouse’s brain and, perhaps eventually, the human brain –an undertaking on the scale of the Human Genome Project in which researchers will plot and categorize the nearly hundred billion neurons and the hundred trillion connections among them.”
*
2016 Plans for Human Trials:
“The new technology relies on opsins, a type of ion channel consisting of proteins that conduct neurons’ electrical signaling. Neurons contain hundreds of different types of ion channels but opsins open in response to light. Some opsins are found in the human retina but those used in optogenetics are derived from algae and other organisms. The first opsins used in optogenetics, called channel rhodopsins, open to allow positively charged ions to enter the cell when activated by a flash of blue light, which causes the neuron to fire an electrical impulse. Other opsin proteins pass inhibitory, negatively charged ions in response to light, making it possible to silence neurons as well. Researchers have widely expanded the arsenal of available opsins with genetic engineering, for example making ones that stay open in response to a short burst of light.
   The main challenge before optogenetic therapies become a reality is getting opsin genes into the adult human neurons to be targeted in a treatment. In rodents researchers have employed two main strategies: transgenics, in which mice are bred to make opsins in specific neurons—an option unsuitable for use in humans. The other method uses a virus to implant a gene into a neuron. Viruses are currently being used for other types of gene therapy in humans, but challenges remain. Viruses must penetrate mature neurons and deliver their gene cargo without spurring an immune reaction. Then the neuron has to express the opsin in the right place, and it has to go on making the protein continuously—ideally forever.”
*
June, 2016 –Predictably, “The invention of optogenetics greatly accelerated the pace of progress in brain science. But experimenters were limited by the difficulty of delivering light deep into brain tissue. Now ultrathin, flexible microchips, each one hardly bigger than a neuron, are being tested as injectable devices to put nerves under wireless control. They can be inserted deep into a brain…”

A lifetime transgene viral vector:
2008 –“AAV [adeno-associated virus] was initially considered as a vector by only a few laboratories…[but] with time, it has become among the most commonly used viral vectors… [because] almost all other viral vectors lead to an initial burst of transgene expression that commonly disappears after a relatively short time, measured in weeks. AAV transgene expression, on the other hand, frequently persists for years or the life time of the animal...”
*
Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) are small viruses that affect humans and other..primate species. They belong to the parvovirus family and require a helper virus, such as adenovirus, herpes simplex virus, or vaccinia virus, to replicate… If no helper virus is present, they are able to incorporate themselves into the host cell’s genome and latently replicate as the host cell replicates.”

Using Light to deliverTouch:
March 2012– “We have recently generated.. transgenic lines of rat in which …some neurons were endowed with photosensitivity by the introduction of the ChR2 gene, coding an algal photoreceptor molecule… We identified that ChR2 is expressed in a certain population of large neurons in the DRG [dorsal root ganglion]..[and] were classified as mechanoreceptive… Each..rat showed a sensory-evoked behavior in response to blue LED flashes on the plantar skin. It is thus suggested that each rat acquired an unusual sensory modality of sensing blue light through the skin as touch-pressure.”
*
Is it possible that one could hear light, smell light, taste light and touch light? When ChR2 [algal opsin] is targeted to different peripheral sensory neurons by viral vectors… the animals can sense the light as various sensations such as hearing, touch, pain, [etc.].”

From the Department of Energy: “Quantum Dots are nanoparticles of semiconductor that can be tuned to glow in a rainbow of colors. Since their discovery in the 1980s, these remarkable nanoparticles have held out tantalizing prospects for all kinds of new technologies… Excite a quantum dot and it glows brightly… The smaller the dot, the bluer the light. The larger the dot, the redder. Quantum dots can likewise be tuned to absorb specific wavelengths of light, a useful property for solar cells. In comparison… a light-emitting diode (LED) made of one material may glow green while another glows red. To get different colors, you must use different materials….
“…when the dots are stimulated into emitting light, that light can be detected outside the body and turned into a detailed image of the tissue. Because quantum dots emit light at a particular frequency, dots of several different sizes could be used simultaneously to image different parts of the body. However, a major obstacle has been finding a way to encapsulate the quantum dots, to protect the dots (and the body) from damage, and to allow them to automatically attach themselves to the proper parts of the body. Only very recently have scientists found ways to do this. Today there are numerous researchers looking for ways to put quantum dots inside casings made of chemicals that protect the dots while inside the body. Then bits of DNA are attached to the casings to allow the dots to become attached to particular kinds of cells.” http://www.ethw.org/Quantum_Dots

“In this article, it was found that quantum dots (QDs) can induce simian virus 40 (SV40) capsid assembly in dissociation buffer where viral capsids should be disassembled [bold emphasis added–JL]… [E]xperimental results showed that the SV40..protein can be assembled..in the dissociation buffer when QDs are present and that the QDs are encapsulated in the SV40 capsids. Moreover, there is a strong affinity between QDs and the SV40..proteins… This study provides a new understanding of the assembly mechanism of SV40 virus-based nanoparticles with QDs which may help in the design and construction of other similar virus-based nanoparticles.”

barrelOFmonkeysMonkey virus, SV40, is known to readers of the blog as not just the “contaminant” distributed in Salk and Sabin polio vaccines of the 1950s and ’60s. I contend, rather, that the polio-related SV40 was an intentional genetic tag included in vaccines for multi-generational population tracking, according to the mandate of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission to study radiation effects over a span of one-hundred years. Polio is readily caused by radiation as the document record proves. By the early 1960s when SV40 was identified in the press as a vaccine contaminant, its transgenic properties were already known by many scientists. Albert Sabin oversaw recombinant SV40 studies done at Israel’s Weizmann Institute when he became its director in 1970-72. In keeping with the neuroweaponry theme, the poliovirus itself has been called “the perfect human OFF switch.” Read more about it here: http://www.polioforever.wordpress.com
    SV40 literature beginning in the 1960s indicates a scientific opinion regarding its relative harmlessness in humans.

Encephalitis-inducing viruses are top candidates in this new type of psychiatric transgene therapy which brings back our  frenemy GMO polio [pardon my ‘O’], currently in use as as brain cancer treatment. This investigator has no citations on hand showing a specific optogenetic application for poliovirus, but natural logic and history suggests it will be tried if not already –any discovered finds of poliovirus for this purpose will be added to the post. The scenario of  therapeutic transgene poliovirus adopted as the global vaccine antigen raises some formidable concern about present transhumanism. Perhaps emerging vectors like West Nile Virus and Zika, for which there are no current vaccines but everybody will get them when there are, would preferentially suit the public mental health agenda.

                                  fMRI    Imaging Tech:  Brain-mapping to Mind-reading:
“Over the last few years, researchers have made significant strides in decoding our thoughts based on brain activity.
How this would work is still at the very early stages of development. But, given what we can already do, it’s not a huge leap to imagine that one day we could read the words of people’s internal streams of thought, said Jack Gallant, a prominent neuroscientist at the University of California, Berkeley.”

2009 –…“Wolfson Institute..at University College London [has] developed a way to activate a small subset of the neural circuit that underlies a specific memory… The researchers took advantage of a gene called c-fos, which is expressed by recently activated neurons, and used the portion that controls gene expression to turn on the light-sensitive protein channelrhodopsin…” http://www.bioedonline.org/news/nature-news/total-recall-achieved/

2016 –At MIT “Tonegawa’s lab has identified cells in the brain’s hippocampus that store specific memories. The researchers have also shown that they can manipulate these memory traces, or engrams, to plant false memories, activate existing memories, or alter a memory’s emotional associations. https://clinicalnews.org/2016/03/16/lost-memories-can-be-found/

 Multi-Sensory Environment (MSE) Room therapy, in general use for preschools and nursing homes, is where participants can ‘safely’ interact with electronics and music — is this a “treatment” in advance of a “therapy”?

Future postings: a decade of advances in optogenetics; more than two decades in mind-mapping; the 2013 BRAIN Initiative and similar programs that  ought to help clarify how the “last mile in the Telecosm” is you.
