We are Invisible Ghosts – May Day – Fasting

Kojo No Tsuki (Rentaro Taki), performed by Yo-Yo Ma, Michio Mamiya, & Patricia Zander, from the album Japanese Melodies (1990)

In an English country church yardWe are invisible ghosts, the faceless, un-noticed, worker ants that keep everything going. If the grey tribe ever stopped supporting everything human civilization takes for granted the pink tribe corner office vampires wouldn’t notice until the lights went out and the toilets stopped working.

And then they would die in their millions, or revert to savagery, and perhaps a very few would discover talents and abilities and motivations they never knew they had.

In the meantime they, our pink masters, kill thousands of us in the name of their progressive social programs, political correctness, government guidelines and deviant agendas.

Canada Food guide

The Canada Food Guide

Diet guidelines that actually protect and support multinational agri-giants at the expense of the folks, medical guidelines that protect and support the medical associations and big-pharma at the cost of literally hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide.

Little known but true is the fact that Canada is the ONLY country in the world whose government, in their wisdom, has approved the use of large numbers of GMOs in the human food chain. 

But the human body was never designed with GMOs in mind. It seems that there is something, a feeling called satiety, which is what controls the amount of natural food a human can eat – thus we find it difficult to eat 50 pounds of steak at a sitting or 50 pounds of shrimp at one party or… well you get what I am saying here. 

GMO Corn

It is becoming difficult to obtain food in Canada which is NOT GMO based

But GMOs DON’T trigger the satiety feeling because the body was not designed to handle GMOs. That is why we have no trouble eating 50 pounds of popcorn or 50 pounds of taco chips or 50 pounds of bread, because we never become satiated.

We just keep right on eating 5-6-7 times a day of even continuously snacking so that the body just never stops digesting and storing the calories and producing insulin to actuate the body’s storage mechanisms.

The result is an epidemic of obese diabetics. Look around any public area anywhere in North America. The folks you see around you every day sure don’t look like the folks in the old photographs of our grandparents and great-grandparents. 

The main difference is our diet and the money to be made these days by big multinationals who happily help our government masters justify guidelines which actually kill the folks while making the multinationals rich beyond shareholders wildest dreams, and a share of those riches accrue to government through taxes. 

Most people assume that scientific integrity is somehow assured; that there are safeguards along the way, preventing fraudulent research from harming patients. Unfortunately, scientific misconduct has become a very serious and widespread problem that threatens the entire paradigm of science-based medicine.

Just “follow  the money” and remember that ethics were invented for people without morals.

All our government bureaucrats are both victims of their own guidelines and culpable participants in the biggest mass murder in history. And we let it go without a whimper because it happens slowly over a period of years and we are all like the frogs in the story about boiled frogs.

In another example we can look at why do leading professors of psychiatry base their practice on a number of erroneous myths. These myths are harmful to patients. Many psychiatrists are well aware that the myths do not hold, but they don’t dare deviate from the official positions (medical association guidelines) because of career concerns.

All of these guidelines and myths are ostensibly aimed at “helping” us all the while supporting the establishment and forcing us to live lives that line up with their “social values” (whatever that means) “for our own good” because obviously we are just too stupid to come in out of the rain.

So how is my fasting lifestyle coming along. Well, pretty well actually, mostly the last 6 weeks doing the 1 meal a day thing  and blood sugars are around 7 mmol/l, dropped 30 pounds (on a roller-coaster), blood pressure 110 over 55 resting, off all meds for diabetes and blood pressure.

Just taking vitamins. Feeling pretty good as well, a little stretched at times but generally pretty sharp. Sleeping less – never had trouble sleeping and don’t have problems falling asleep but I find myself waking up earlier and earlier. Watching a TED talk right now at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVArDzYynYc 

Everyone's an OutlierIsn’t it entertaining to discover that we are all at risk of dieing of government guidelines. The problem with guidelines is that there are no standard humans to which the standard guidelines actually apply.

One of the most dangerous errors is that civilization is automatically bound to increase and spread. The lesson of history is the opposite; civilization is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost. The normal state of humanity is barbarism, just as the normal surface of the planet is salt water.

Land looms large in our imagination and civilization in history books, only because sea and savagery are to us less interesting.” — C. S. Lewis

*****

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded—here and there, now and then—are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

“This is known as ‘bad luck’. ” – Robert A. Heinlein

I am not alone in my observations but these gentlemen say it so much more elegantly than I in my grey tribe arrogance.

Cheers
