THE HISTORY OF EL SALVADOR AND BITCOIN

This video blog is designed to show that Thomas Paine and Nayib Bukele have much in common.  

Politically they are doing the same things to their countrymen.

Thomas Paine was born on February 9, 1737, and died on June 8, 1809.  He was an English-born American political activist, philosopher, political theorist, and revolutionary. He authored Common Sense (1776) and The American Crisis (1776–1783), two of the most influential pamphlets at the start of the American Revolution, and helped inspire the Patriots in the 13 colonies of New America in 1775 to declare independence from Great Britain. He wrote Common Sense at the age of 38.  On September 7th, 2021 Nayib Bukele was 38 years old when he made Bitcoin legal tender in El Salvador.  Both of these men were Millenials of their day.  Paine’s ideas reflected the Enlightenment-era ideals of transnational human rights.  Bukele’s political ideas have changed to support the same ideology.  Paine convinced poor farmers who sought refuge from King George over religious freedom and freedom from unjust taxation.  Bukele is doing the same by giving his poor country monetary freedom to fight the lender of last resort known as the IMF.  The IMF represents the same ideology as King George.

What Paine said in “Common Sense” describes Bitcoin perfectly for mankind in 2022.

Paine wrote, “Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.

As a long and violent abuse of power, is generally the Means of calling the right of it in question (and in matters too which might never have been thought of, had not the Sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry) and as the King of England had undertaken in his own Right, to support the Parliament in what he calls Theirs, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpation of either.

In the following sheets, the author hath studiously avoided everything which is personal among ourselves. Compliments, as well as censure to individuals, make no part thereof. The wise, and the worthy, need not the triumph of a pamphlet; and those whose sentiments are injudicious, or unfriendly, will cease of themselves unless too many pains are bestowed upon their conversion.

The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind. Many circumstances hath, and will arise, which are not local, but universal, and through which the principles of all Lovers of Mankind are affected, and in the event of which, their Affections are interested. The laying of a Country desolate with Fire and Sword, declaring War against the natural rights of all Mankind, and extirpating the Defenders thereof from the Face of the Earth, is the Concern of every Man to whom Nature hath given the Power of feeling; of which class, regardless of Party Censures, is the

THE AUTHOR.
Philadelphia, Feb. 14, 1776.”

On June 5, 2021, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele declared that bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency, would become legal tender in El Salvador. A few days later, the Bitcoin Law was passed, to take effect on Sept. 7, 2021.

Bitcoin restores and provides monetary freedom to the people.  This is the only freedom that was not spoken about by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence of July 4th, 1776.  The reason should be obvious:  the idea of Bitcoin was 233 years away from 1776.  Ironically, the corrupted democratic republic would fund and build the internet that would act like John the Baptist for the introduction of Bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto.  Bukele seemed to realize that monetary freedom would be the seed to sow if he wanted to rid his country of poverty and the slavery of IMF debt.  Most of his population however has no idea how this idea works.  Moreover, his political allies want the public to believe that Bitcoin is Bukele’s coin or his idea.  It is far from the truth.

What Bukele gave his people on Sept 7th, 2021 was a new Declaration of Independence from IMF rule. September 7th, 2021 was an action that mimics precisely what Paine wrote above in words.  He gave them a reason to fight for freedom.  Freedom comes in a negative and positive forms.  One is “Don’t Tread On Me” (negative), and the other is “We The People” (positive).   Patriots of the 13 colonies had to fight for their freedom and liberty in a revolutionary war.  The people of El Salvador, today, really have no idea what Bitcoin is or who Paine was and what he did for future Americans, but they do not have to wage war against their King today.  That King is the IMF, their current debt holder.  They just need to buy Bitcoin to fight their King and push him to submission.  People who are forced to use paper money are going to have to fight the peaceful quiet riot until we have to wage the real war against the banking elites.

Bitcoin is more than just a wise investment of the present day.  It’s poised to become the central player in the future of money itself. Money, which has evolved through the millennia from cowrie shells to clay tablets to precious metals, banknotes, and bank balances, is taking another step into the future. Money is becoming digital.  Governments linked to the IMF and BIS want to create centralized digital money called SDRs or CBDCs.   All of these technologies limit the freedom of people using them in a myriad of ways.  This suits the government but it does nothing for the things written in the Declaration of Independence or the US Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson’s words in our Declaration of July 4th, 1776 rhyme quite well with the actions of Nayib Bukele on Sept 7th, 2021.

Jefferson wrote, In Congress, on July 4, 1776,

“The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly, all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms 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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”  Jefferson then went on to state the case of facts at that present moment of why freedom from the King’s tyranny was wise for New America.  History has documented this movement 246 years ago.

13 years ago Bitcoin was born.  Bitcoin is the “musket rifle” that Bukele has chosen to use against the IMF for the benefit of his people.

Governments have become quite eager to defend the status quo where states and state-based institutions have a monopoly on money printing, and corporations also have their sights set on the reinvention of money. In this regard, Bukele sticks out like a sore thumb to most other politicians in the world.  He wants to return the freedom of money back to his people for them to decide how to live their life.  But there are a number of factors that over time will work in Bitcoin’s favor.

First, Bitcoin is censorship-resistant and offers freedom from financial repression.

  • Second, Bitcoin is emerging as the natural successor to gold as a store of value over time.
  • Third And somewhat counterintuitively, Bitcoin is benefiting from the efforts of legacy financial technology and payments companies like Western Union, PayPal, Block, and Visa that are making Bitcoin available to their hundreds of millions of users and millions of merchants.
  • Fourth, Bitcoin is being embraced by large public companies and other institutions as a viable alternative to cash and other assets on their balance sheets or in their portfolios.
  • Fifth, Bitcoin’s community is borderline religious in their devotion, which makes Bitcoin resilient in the USA.  This freedom fever is spreading to communities in El Salvador and Central and South America as it did in the 13 colonies during Paine’s lifetime.

Bitcoin is censorship-resistant which creates freedom emergently. In other words, a government cannot throttle, control or monitor your behavior as they can in the legacy financial world. Consider the following examples from Nigeria, Canada, India, Belarus, China, and Russia, collectively home to 3 billion people.

In 2020, protests against the government erupted in Lagos and across Nigeria because of the brutal and illegal actions of a unit in the police force called the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). Within days, groups supporting the protesters had their bank accounts frozen. With no other option, they turned to Bitcoin, raising funds that sustained the movement.  We saw the same thing in Canada in the winter of 2022 in Canada, when the Truckers began to use Bitcoin to throttle the tyranny of Trudeau.

In Nigeria, daily U.S. dollar peer-to-peer trade consistently clocks in at over $1.5 million USD from a base of zero only a few years ago. Peer-to-peer Bitcoin transactions can be zero-fee, a big break from the much higher fees many in Africa are forced to pay for basic financial services, such as those for remittances which average 9%.  You saw the video above when Salvadorean told us he gave up 30% of his salary to send his money home to Salvador using Western Union.

Nigeria’s young, tech-savvy Bitcoin users are the model for how the global south in Central and South America will soon interact with financial services.  In China, the government wants to replace many transactions with a central bank digital alternative to control the behavior of how people use money to buy things.  In India, the government too high denomination notes out of the circulation to limit counterfeiting.

The demise of cash highlights the need for a digital alternative to ensure private, safe payments between individuals. For example, in China without cash, your access to credit, payments, and savings can simply be switched off if you disagree with the government, a form of financial deplatforming.  We have experienced deplatforming in the US on social media if you have a different opinion from the paradigm in power.  This idea is all around us now and is a detriment to our inalienable rights to freedom.  Bitcoin is a prescription to this illness.

Bitcoin promotes freedom. It enables anyone, anywhere to send, receive or store their wealth. It also prevents governments or corporations from meddling in these transactions. But what type of freedom does Bitcoin provide? Is it a freedom to use or store digital cash or the freedom from an overreaching state?  This shows the world why Bukele is no dictator.  HE is giving his people something tangible they can use to protect them from the government long after he is gone.  This is precisely what the purpose of the founding documents of the USA was about.  Thomas Paine’s pamphlets set the stage for these documents.  Those pamphlet’s changed public opinion in the 13 colonies about freedom and its costs.  I have a sense that Bitcoin’s change to legal tender status in El Salvador will soon do the same for Salvadoreans.  I think we can see this when we look at the megaphone that resides in El Zonte at the Hope House.

13 years ago, the project called “Filling the Love Tank of El Zonte´s Children ” a project created by Jorge Valenzuela and his wife Cristina Guillen by the mentoring of Michael Peterson and his wife Britney Peterson who brought their philosophy of life to Jorge and Cristina.  From this idea came a community that supported a new open-loop community that embraced the use of Bitcoin in a peer-to-peer fashion.  This idea grew so spread monetary freedom to the poorest in El Salvador.  They now go all over El Salvador to show other communities how to use Bitcoin and better themselves and embrace freedom.

FREEDOM IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT APPEARS

Freedom in the republican sense is a social consensus, as the distinction between a master and a slave. Under such a system, interference does not have to be exercised – the master does not have to crack his whip – for it to be present: The mere existence of external, obtrusive forces makes one unfree.

Liberal freedom, on the other hand, is the condition of being free as long as a master does not interfere arbitrarily. ‘Don’t tread on me’, is the cliche that represents this idea.

Bitcoin is based not on the idea of liberal freedom, but on republican freedom.  This is not Bukele’s idea.  Bukele is borrowing this idea from Paine and Jefferson who borrowed it from ancient Rome.  The American Revolution against British domination was a positive conception of freedom = “We The People” in the Constitution of the USA.  It is best described as the ability to dosomething with the aim of realizing a goal or more fully reaching one’s potential.

The positive conception of freedom is a negative concept because it is based on the absence of something, in this case, domination, and a positive one because it relies on active citizenship. For this reason, it offers a more comprehensive approach to freedom, especially with respect to how government and politics operate.

From this wellspring, Bukele borrowed this version of freedom from Paine and Jefferson because it’s this type of freedom that Bitcoin makes space for in El Salvador today because the democratic process facilitates choice. It’s about self-mastery.  This makes Bukele share some traits with Paine and Jefferson.  It also means Bukele respects what happened in ancient Rome.

Bitcoin, as the only decentralized blockchain technology, not only has the advantage of being free from outside interference but also implements various mechanisms agreed upon by its governance protocols to secure that freedom.  This is how Bitcoin creates self-mastery in its code.  Any “interference” to Bitcoin’s protocol has to be deliberated on, and consented to, by the core developers and node operators before it is approved and implemented.  This is very similar to the US Constitution.  For example, amending the U.S. Constitution requires a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Then it must be ratified by three-fourths of the legislatures in the 50 states. If the degree of consensus across a wide body of people is a measure of success, then we can see why Bitcoin uses a proof of work consensus to provide for the freedoms of its users.

What Bukele’s political opponents fail to realize is that the Bitcoin blockchain protocol promises both negative freedoms (“Don’t Tread on Me”) and positive freedom (“We the People”) it attracts not only libertarians but also progressives.  This means Bitcoin will eventually attract ideologues in both Arena and FMLN to his Bitcoin policies.  Neither of these two factions of political ideologues realizes that Bukele is stealing their political power right below their noses.

Today, the right and left in the USA do not argue about the truths in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.  They both support it.  In the future, Arena and FMLN will come to the same conclusion about Bitcoin.

The US Constitution and Declaration were missing the major part of freedom, namely, the freedom of money.  Bitcoin solves this problem.  El Salvador has solved the toughest problem.  The key is when will the old world political parties realize that Bukele has used the playbook of Thomas Paine and Jefferson to solve the problem that has plagued El Salvador for decades?

It seems his people trust him now, just like the original 13 colonies trusted George Washington not to become a new version of King George under the guidance of our Constitution which provided governance of the newly born USA.  These words are synonymous with the code found in Bitcoin today.

Quantum Engineering #8: HOW SMALL IS SMALL?

How small is small?

When we speak about mitochondria which are loaded with electrons and protons we are engaging the physics of the so-called sub atomic world.  We need to understand how size links to thermodynamics.  This is why the physics of elementary particles and their interactions with light are important to a mitochondria.  When things shrink people understanding tends to shrink as well.

Quantum physics confounds people because the “small world” of chloroplast and mitochondria do not act as the world we observe.   The reason behind this, is as the scale of action of the elctromagnetic force changes so does its power.  The electromagnetic force is mush stronger at small scales than it is at larger scales.

To illustrate this point, consider the size of an atomic nucleus is approximately 100,000 times less than the size of a water molecule. Now understand, a water molecule is smaller than the visible light wavelength in a photon by a factor of 1000. So even using our best optical microscopes we couldn’t hope to see or observe a molecule of water, let alone an atomic nucleus. Thus there is an obvious problem of even adequately visualizing the objects in question that life deals with.  It should be no wonder why centralized medicine is blind to what a mitochondriac understands.

When light is in motion, just changing of the electro-magnetic field in space won’t bend light at all. Physics has proved this; a constant electric or magnetic field wont change its behavior at all. The reason is tied to Maxwell’s classical equations on electromagnetic waves. It’s like rising the water level and expecting the waves on the surface to deflect.
But here is where things get interesting for biology: changing the viscosity of the liquid at a certain time interval (day and night) will deflect the wave on the surface. Can a mitochondria change their viscosity by altering the chemistry inside their matrix? Yes, they can.  Now consider hydrogen bonding networks are very dynamic. So dynamic that we cannot perceive how fast they adapt.

The fast adaptive behavior of these H+ networks in water, alone determine the dielectric constant of medium they are within. Normal bulk water has a high dielectric value. Low pH aqueous environments (inflammation) have excessive protons, and has a lowered dielectric value.  Alkaline pH also changes the dielectric constant. The other chemicals in the matrix, like exotic atoms can alter the dielectric values in the mitochondrial matrix. When we alter the dielectric value guess what interaction changes the most?  Viscosity change the most in cells when this happens.  This changes the quality of the semiconductors inside of us and how they work.  It changes how electrons and protons move within our atomic lattice in mitochondria.  This changes how they process energy and information.  The smallest things in you make the largest difference in medicine and health.

Any change in a dielectric value directly alters the electromagnetic force generation capable between things in the water. This changes the viscoeleastic tensions in mitochondria. This changes the size and shape changes of the mitochondria.

This means the adaptive changes of the dielectric constant in the matrix  can directly affect the ability to tunnel protons or electrons well.  When you have this ability to control these things you have the ability to control how biochemistry can work at its basic level. Remember, all enzymatic catalysis is tied to proton tunneling too. The more viscous something is, the more energy needs to be added to get a tunneling effect to overcome the energy barrier. If you can’t overcome this change you lose the ability to quantum tunnel in your mitochondria.

What does non-quantum tunneling look like?

^^^^ Aluminum after a 1/2 oz piece of plastic hit it at 15,000 mph in space.  This is the effect of kinetic energy in space.

In a mitochondria, the electromagnetic force is uber strong due to the small scale.  In this environment, protons are mostly kinetic energy and not mass.  This is why protons tunnel and why they don’t punch holes like those above in the 6 micron membranes in the mitochondria.

^^^^Answer:  You cells were built by nature to select H+ over deuterium in the carbon back bone of things made by metabolism under the direction of photosynthesis.  The sun buries the smallest things in places and your mitochondria has to decipher this treasure map so you can remain healthy and avoid medicine.

To visualize this process think about a wave on a river as a boat passes and the waves interaction with rocks and pebbles on the river’s edge. Those waves can flow around those objects at the water’s edge. Sound waves can go through walls in houses too so you can hear your kid’s rock music while your trying to watch TV. The EMF waves from a cell tower pass through your house to get to your mobile phone or your laptop from a wiFi source. The water or air that carries these waves does not penetrate your walls or the rocks on the river’s edge, but the vibrations in the air or water do transmit those waves to you to feel or sense it.
If you were the rogue element, the hydrogen ion (H+), you would be able to pass through any wall like a ghost with ease. The hydrogen nucleus stripped of its electron in the sun’s core does this routinely. It can expand and spread out to cover the energy barriers in the sun’s core like a ghost, to be close enough to its partner protons on the other side of the wall to fuse together.

Do you understand why small matters now to life?

SUMMARY

There is a data paradox in science. Medicine believes they need big data to heal people so they rely on it without ever questioning it, so they created electronic medical records with blue lit screens. Not one person every thought to ask does the medium affect the message when we collect it this way? Those applications have destroyed the patient/doctor user interface and harmed physicians eyes and brains. Their employers have forced this change and the public is paying the pricce of this error.  Today’s PSA: Data matures like wine, applications like fish…….somebody should tell google that 90% of fish are now extinct. I see a similar path for “data science.”

Integrity of scientific data should add to the “signals” in nature; not add to the noise in our lives. In the end we should attempt to always do the right things in wellness even if it’s difficult. Integrity is telling ourself the truth about the data we find. And honesty is telling the truth to other people about the revelations we’ve discovered in our bio-hacks. Today’s environment forces us to stand within a tsunami of EMF, and this typhoon is fully capable of blowing our health away by changing our viscosity.  We can weather this storm because we can learn how to adjust our sails to ride this storm out using the integrity of our questions as our beacon.

BITCOIN #42: BIDEN’S NEXT INFLATION MOVE MIGHT HARM YOU

Why should you own Bitcoin right now?  In this midterm election year I expect Biden to freeze prices, institute informal yield control because of currency instability (FX market), and forgive student loan debt all in advance of November.  This will be bullish for Bitcoin as inflation goes into hyperinflation range and Bitcoin begins its ascent in Europe, Asia and the US

Social unrest will rise as inflation rises.  Credit is the future tense of what money is today. Credit is how we borrow time from tomorrow today. When we borrow time it comes with a toll. That toll is the leverage of inflation.  When we rely on credit, we need to pay more in the future money for the time we steal today from the future. Inflation is time theft. Credit to an excess always leads to inflation because of how credit links to time.

Hod do I see things breaking now?

The shortage of gas/diesel supplies in Europe is going to explode the price of hydrocarbons very soon = target $120 = DXY going higher = Fx risk rising = credit crisis probability increases.  What happens on May 4th or May 11th will be additive to the motion of inflation in this broken economy.

The effects of inflation bad currency FX trades and High Yield bond losses for banks have cause the bank stocks to drop 25% in the last month.  The Swiss franc is one of the strongest rmeaining currencies in the world, but even the Swiss banks got hit with this risk.  The Swiss Central Bank got hit with a 35 billion loss.

Why would a strong bank with a strong currency get hit with this loss?  To answer this you have to understand how the global economy is connected and how it works.  The Japanese yen is dying.  The last 7 weeks it is the second worse currency in the WORLD in terms of its strength.  It has been getting weaker because of rising US interest rates and higher oil prices in Europe.  Here is the recent chart of the Yen plotted against the USD.

As Yen gets debased, so do South Korean Won, the Chinese Yuan, and Euro. These currencies weakening makes the global economic system react to these stimuli via the butterfly effect. A small currency change in Asia is capable of taking down the global financial system, defines a butterfly effect. The symptoms of this currency flu is now being seen in the US bond market yields and in equity instability.   US bond market has an inverted curve and the pressure on the ten year bond continues to go higher as inflation risks go higher.  The pulse of inflation in the US is not what it is in Europe.

What is driving US inflation?

The zero COVID policies in China.  This has totally shut down all manufacturing in the top three ports in China which means supply chains disruptions in the US will be down for the next 12-24 months causing US inflation and a serious drop in US GDP.  GDP was just announce as negative yesterday for the current quarter in the US.

Proof that GDP is headed lower and recession is here already?

We are getting additional data/signs of economic slowdown from forward looking indicators The 6-months forecast for new orders in the Philly survey today printed at the lowest level in 10 years, and similar metrics in Europe look bad too Plus China in lockdown
Credit markets are sniffing some issues here, with junk credit spreads in the US on their way to convincingly break the 400 bps mark.

GDPNow estimate from ⁦Atlanta Fed has moved lower for 1Q22; now at +0.4% (q/q ann.) … nowcast for real PCE has declined from +3.8% to +2.4

The PCE came out today  at 5.2%.  So inflation is here to stay in US.  The patient is in the ICU now.  The symptoms are present.

Where can we see the symptoms of all this inflation in the US? American bank stocks. If you own bank stocks think about dumping them because banks are slowly catching the High Yield bond flu now. These stocks are down 25% from their recent highs.

Interest rates in the US have risen dramatically in the US and this make the dollar stronger compared to all other currencies.  That is not good for them.  At home a strong dollar and higher interest rates are toxic for real estate.  The US private sector sits on more than $35 trillion of debt and you think mortgage rates and corporate bond yields above 5% will have no impact on the system? Think again.

Why do people really think the FED will hike aggressively in 2022 with VIX over 30?

The equity markets are getting crushed in April.  See Netflix and Amazon as proof.  Netflix is back to 2017 levels, down 73% from its high

Banks are not leveraged to loans like they are in usual past financial crashes. This time they are bag holding junk bonds in massive numbers. When the powder keg blows bag holders get covered in shit.

the CB in Germany, Deutsche Bank is now calling for 5-6% Fed Funds rate needed to tame inflation. I can tell you at those rates you not only tamed but literally killed inflation, growth, the housing and the stock market, the bond market, and Cathie Wood’s joie de vivre.  It would create a stong US dollar which would destroy everything.

Germany’s consumer confidence has broken the 2020 lows, and food prices are skyrocketing.    Probably nothing. LOL

I believe risk assets (stocks/bonds) are not correctly priced for the macrocycle ahead. Either long-end real yields are going to rise enough until something breaks, or we get a growth slowdown of larger magnitude than currently priced in.  This is why the big cap stocks are getting killed in April.

The month’s not over, but April is thus far the worst month ever for most popular growth/FANG-like names relative to S&P 500.

With the Ukrainian War raging, Russian hydrocarbon costs for Europe is increasing dramatically.  This also weakens the Yen/USD couple. As the USD get stronger, the euro falls in strenght to the USD.  We can see this via the DXY.  The lower the euro falls relative to the dollar, the more inflation will stay elevated in the EU.  The Russian actions with hydrocarbons sales to Europe implies WTI is going much higher than most expect & this will drive EU inflation way higher.  Zero COVID will drive US inflation higher.  Soon both with be additive and the effect will be seen in global currency FX trades, causing widening CDS spreads, and High Yield bond implosions on banks’ balance sheet = PERFECT STORM for the global economy.

In April, Gemrany PPI was at 30.8%, Spain at 46.6%, and Italy Italy PPI 37% YoY at same time  GDP -0.2%.  This shit is hitting the fan folks.

Putin’s effect on EU inflation undeniable.  The ETF of commodities in euro currency has just hit a new high.   Inflation will remain elevated in the EU.

How do I know Putin is winning his war over Brandon?  The ruble is up and the dollar is down. Seems like this should be a bigger media story.  More proof Putin is winning this economic war?  Check what Italy is doing right now:  ITALY’S ENI is preparing to open a new ruble account to purchase hydrocarbons.   Ya’ can’t make this shit up.  The Russian currency is now stronger than it was before the war broke out because Russia back their currency with gold//Bitcoin to force the rest of the world to buy their hydrocarbons with something other than the dollar.

SUMMARY:

Inflation is going to harm the bottom 90% of the population who has little to no Bitcoin.

A new NBC poll: 20% of Americans and *40%* of Black Americans own / have owned cryptocurrency  Likely on the high side, but a clear trend  Bitcoin will be increasingly popular in America and politicians that oppose it will pay the price at the ballot box in November.

The leverage of the US consumer is the ONLY real data to look at in a fiat world based on credit and debt instruments.  Inflation is a negative entropy to the leverage the US consumer has.  Eventually, their ice cube melts under the furnace of inflation.

US wage inflation skyrocketing in US now at 32 yr high but wages still do not offset the loss of value from the 8.5% inflation rate.  As for the United States real estate market, home prices are 30% overvalued with respect to incomes, rents, and consumer inflation.

We now have Fidelity offering BTC in 401K plans.  We have several more countries making Bitcoin legal tender.

Nation-states, cities, and autonomous regions are adopting Bitcoin

El Salvador

Lugano

Prospera

Madeira

Central African Republic

Panama

Folks think the price of crude oil will collapse with the lockdown in China: Think again!  Lower lows being made on OECD commercial oil inventories which means supplies are going down and prices have to rise when this happens.  Moreover, things in China are getting WORSE with zero COVID lockdowns = EU in deeper while global Fx risk rising.

This is the 2nd time since 1996 that equity mutual funds and ETFs saw outflows of more than $20 billion in back-to-back weeks.  The other was October 2008.

JAPAN Minister Of Finance OFFICIAL said this week: EXCESS FX VOLATILITY is undesirable for Japan and the global economy.  Xi seconded that opinion.  His currency is also failing.   Neither of them seem to comprehend that Asian monetary policy is driving the currency debasements. The recent moves are concerning, but Japan keeps buying bonds… the Bank Of Japan is trapped and the Yen keeps being debased as a result.  As it get weaker, the USD gets stronger on a relative basis. The stronger the USD gets (DXY) the larger the wrecking ball gets for the global economy.

The blog take home? Dollar strength > global deflation = DXY is a global wrecking ball = massive credit crisis = global depression Caveat emptor.

QUANTUM ENGINEERING #7: WHAT IS A DISEASE?

Charge conservation is not like energy conservation ideas found in the laws of thermodynamics.  Energy cannot be created or destroyed.  Neither can charges.  But charge confirmation does not mean that individual positive and negative charges cannot be created or destroyed. Why?  Electric charge is ONLY carried by subatomic particles such as electrons and protons. Charged particles that carry electrical information and energy can be created and destroyed in elementary particle reactions.  CERN does this every day.  So does the sun.  It turns out varying redox potential allows for the alteration of electrons and protons inside of mitochondria and many other organelles in cells.  That electrical variation creates tipping points in cells.

Do you understand the Grotthuss mechanism as it is used in mitochondria?  It allows hydrogen protons in water to get very close together too.  For proton tunneling to occur, protons must first get real close in the matrix.  This mechanism works by the like-like attraction spoken about by Feynman in his lectures at Cal-Tech and revisited in the book “The Fourth Phase of Water”.  The video above shows this.

If you place a small negative charge next to a positive charge you begin to see how protons can come together to tunnel. In biology we don’t need protons to fuse to make full-spectrum light, we just need them to come closer together so that proton tunneling can happen and release some of its energy from its kinetic energy stores. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion.

More relevant to biochemistry is the “potential energy” due to the position of atoms in a semiconductive lattice when placed in an electric or magnetic field, such as solvated ions, H+, or atoms transferring charge when forming compounds or molecules.  Another important form of potential energy is that found in a coiled spring like a helix.  Helixes behave naturally as tensegrity structures. They naturally stabilize themselves through a balance between the forces of attraction (tension) and repulsion (compression). These forces are mediated by the charged electrons and protons and this allows all helical structures to flow charged subatomic particles bidirectionally. Why is this important?  In space and in mitochondria, ionized plasma has bidirectional flow. Yet, electric currents inside the ionosphere are unidirectional. Why would most of the important chemicals in life be helical? Bonded atoms exhibit strikingly similar behavior (called vibrational motions) to the action of springs. Potential energy is often thought of as “stored” kinetic energy.  This means that as things (cells or mitochondria) can remain stationary in a potential field such as an electric or magnetic field.

In sleep, we lose our DC electric charge.   Why?

This happens in mitochondria when we sleep. It does not happen when we are awake. Mitochondria and the sun can hold photons, electrons, and protons stable in place by controlling electrical and magnetic forces. When these forces change or oscillate, potential energy is converted to kinetic form of energy.  Information seems to be recycled at this time simultaneously.  In fact, sleep’s main purpose might be to trim information to suit the laws of charge conservation and thermodynamics.  Wheeler and Shannon’s work on information theory and entropy are key to this understanding.

Scientists’ current knowledge believes/thinks this process only happens in the sun under the force of gravity. I don’t believe this, because I don’t think gravity is the major force in Nature controlling and directing this process. I think it is the electromagnetic force that matters most in this transition in the sun and in mitochondria. The reason I believe this is that protons carry a positive charge. All charged particles are controlled by electromagnetic force with infinite range and power. That means the electromagnetic force controls proton action in mitochondria and is likely tied to its ability to proton tunnel. All enzymes have been found to use proton tunneling using the kinetic isotope effect to become biologic catalysts.

Watch the video above again now.

How you ask a question in science determines if the experiment is right or wrong. We are missing this today in medicine; what we believe today is based upon experiments guys like Feynman asked decades ago, but even he knew today’s laws are subject to better ideas yet to come. That time has come in biology. Instead of narrowing our focus to the science, we believe today, we should use it to broaden the part of our mind we know we don’t connect with. In this way, instead of denying things that don’t conform to our beliefs, we can begin to discover things to do not fit our current paradigm or beliefs and this is, in my opinion, the best diving board for scientific discovery.

In mitochondria, we have massive electric and magnetic fields that control not only electrons but protons because both are charged particles. The isolated proton, a hydrogen nucleus, is not currently believed by physicists to transmute to a neutron outside of the sun’s furnace. Current beliefs don’t equate to natural truths. Why do I say this? No one has done the experiment yet to see if mitochondria are incapable of it. The mitochondria matrix is loaded with other things that alter the viscosity of the medium that which the H+ is exposed. When you change the viscosity inside the matrix what are you really doing?  You are effectively altering the dielectric constant of the mitochondrial matrix.

What force controls the dielectric values of chemicals?  The electromagnetic force does. When you change the dielectric constant of the medium the protons are existing in, strange things happen to them.  Those strange things are quantum mechanical tunneling inside living things.  These things are anathema to biology but very expected by physicists. Things that you would not expect to happen in the vacuum of a physics experiment all of a sudden manifest.

When light is moving, just changing the electromagnetic field in space won’t bend light at all. Physics has proved this; a constant electric or magnetic field won’t change its behavior at all. The reason is tied to Maxwell’s classical equations on electromagnetic waves. It’s like rising the water level and expecting the waves on the surface to deflect.

But here is where things get interesting for biology: changing the viscosity of the liquid at a certain interval will deflect the wave on the surface. Can a mitochondrion change its viscosity by altering the chemistry inside its matrix? Yes, they can.

Hydrogen bonding networks are very dynamic. So dynamic that we cannot perceive how fast they adapt. This should get you thinking about Feynman’s video above I linked too. The fast adaptive behavior of these H+ networks in water, alone determines the dielectric constant of the medium they are within. Seasonal weather variations due to the sun drive these processes.  Normal bulk water has a high dielectric value. Low pH aqueous environments (inflammation) have excessive protons and have a lowered dielectric value.

Alkaline pH also changes the dielectric constant. The other chemicals in the matrix, like exotic atoms, can alter the dielectric values in the mitochondrial matrix because they change the overall charge inside the matrix. When we alter the dielectric value guess what interaction changes the most? Any change in a dielectric value directly alters the electromagnetic force generation capable between things in the water. This changes the viscoelastic tensions in mitochondria.

This means the adaptive changes of the dielectric constant in the matrix can directly affect the ability to tunnel protons or electrons well.  When you have this ability to control these things you have the ability to control how biochemistry can work at its basic level. Remember, all enzymatic catalysis is tied to proton tunneling too. The more viscous something is, the more energy needs to be added to this medium to get a quantum tunneling effect to overcome the energy barrier. If you can’t overcome this change you lose the ability to tunnel and life become less able to do the things we know it can do.  We call this loss “a disease” in modern medicine.  This implies all diseases are tied to some charge changes in the mitochondrial matrix ability.

QUANTUM ENGINEERING #6: MAGNETIC FLUX IN THE MATRIX

You cannot find wellness in the same environment you got ill within. That is nature’s rules not mine. We have to pay attention to this chronic disconnection from nature or illness will begin and manifest. You have to embrace a water existence because water is a natural Faraday cage.   The water your mitochondria creates is the most important water in the equation of life.

You want that cage built inside your cells in an EZ format to protect you from nnEMF’s of all types and restrict calcium flows; this will allow you to stimulate your vagus nerve stimulation while muting the activation of the paraventricular nucleus  (PVN) in the brain stem.  So how does a simple change of the environment really work?  It works on magnetic field and electric field variation on our mitochondria.  This effects how charge particle can operate in your cells.

You want that cage built inside your cells in an EZ format to protect you from nnEMF’s of all types and restrict calcium flows; this will allow you to stimulate your vagus nerve stimulation while muting the activation of the paraventricular nucleus  (PVN) in the brain stem.  So how does a simple change of the environment really work?  It works on magnetic field and electric field variation on our mitochondria.  This effects how charge particle can operate in your cells.

This alteration in the magnetic field causes a change in the free radical signal.  The free radical signal is controlled by the levels of oxygen in mitochondria not used in oxidative phosphylation.  Oxygen is a paramagnetic gas so the magnetic field created by a mitochondria links to the how much oxygen is present to create a free radical signal.

This is how free radicals changes lead to physiologic changes by changing energy flows in mitochondria.  The free radical changes are always associated with size and shape changes and location from the nucleus in a cell.

All free radicals have unpaired electrons spins.  Spin is one of the quantum numbers.  The Earth has a relatively stable magnetic field due to the dynamo.  The effect of static magnetic fields on biologic semiconductors effects the permeability of lipid vesicles connected to cell membranes.  This can effect release or assimilation of vescles on membranes.  This membranes are electric lipid rafts.

This is a big deal in the neural synapse with neurotransmitters.   The magnetic forces of the environment helps to summate all of the diamagnetic atomic alignments of atoms. Diamagnetic atoms form large molecular aggregates with respect to the new external magnetic field.  This effect can be seen to occur near eukaryotic cell membranes which are adjacent to cytosolic water.  We also see mitochondria move away from the nucleus when this occurs.  This movement in the EZ is occurs in the interfascial zone of water because it is at a transition between the cell membrane and EZ water.

This zone excludes things down to the size of protons so it really excludes things that are the larger than the atomic radius of a proton.  These rapid changes in electromagnetic fields occur at various temperatures for each photo-chemical footprint.  This is why the isomerization step for sulfated Vitamin D3 synthesis is increased by UV light heating up the epidermis and why it is altered by blue light frequencies because of the difference of how the penetrate the skin.

BITCOIN #41: HOW WERE YOU ORANGE PILLED?

When and how did you get orange pilled?    My experience was during the great financial crisis when one of my friends in the automobile business shared some experiences he was having with the government and his business.  They mirrored some of the things happening in medicine at the same time.

I got this from a good friend in Industry.  It encapsulates my emotions on our economy and America.  Under Obama I am worried that capitalism will fade and communism will flourish.  I am sickened at how he has handled the bailouts.  I also think his appointment of Geitner was and is criminal now that we know Geitner was responsible legally and morally for Lehman’s failure and in the end the cause of us having to bail out AIG.  I am disgusted with America.  The change we got was new shit from another cesspool.  I cant wait to vote again.  I wish it where tomorrow.  In two years Congress is going to look alot different.  You can bank on it.  And for those of you who have not googled the tirade that I saw live on CNBC of Rick Santelli a Chicago bond trader on the floor of the MERC please watch it here.  This is the largest transfer of wealth in mankind going on.  They blamed Bush for Iraq, well Congress spent 1000 Iraqs in a day for the benefit of bankers in 2008.  They have ruined our future with this spending.
This is an actual note GM sent out to their suppliers.

Dear Employees & Suppliers,

Congress and the current Administration will soon determine whether to provide immediate support to the domestic auto industry to help it through one of the most difficult economic times in our nation’s history. Your elected officials must hear from all of us now on why this support is critical to our continuing the progress we began prior to the global financial crisis………………….As an employee or supplier, you have a lot at stake and continue to be one of our most effective and passionate voices. I know GM can count on you to have your voice heard.

Thank you for your urgent action and ongoing support.

Response from: Gregory Knox, Pres.
Knox Machinery Company
Franklin, Ohio

Gentlemen:

In response to your request to contact legislators and ask for a bailout for the Big Three automakers please consider the following, and please pass my thoughts on to Troy Clark, President of General Motors North America.

Politicians and Management of the Big 3 are both infected with the same entitlement mentality that has spread like cancerous germs in UAW halls for the last countless decades, and whose plague is now sweeping this nation, awaiting our new “messiah”, Pres-elect Obama, to wave his magic wand and make all our problems go away, while at the same time allowing our once great nation to keep “living the dream”… Believe me folks, The dream is over!

This dream where we can ignore the consumer for years while management myopically focuses on its personal rewards packages at the same time that our factories have been filled with the worlds most overpaid, arrogant, ignorant and laziest entitlement minded “laborers” without paying the price for these atrocities…this dream where you still think the masses will line up to buy our products for ever and ever.

Don’t even think about telling me I’m wrong.  Don’t accuse me of not knowing of what I speak.  I have called on Ford, GM, Chrysler, TRW, Delphi, Kelsey Hayes, American Axle and countless other automotive OEM’s throughout the Midwest during the past 30 years and what I’ve seen over those years in these union shops can only be described as disgusting.

Troy Clarke, President of General Motors North America, states: “There is widespread sentiment throughout this country, and our government, and especially via the news media, that the current crisis is completely the result of bad management which it certainly is not.”

You’re right Mr. Clarke,  it’s not JUST management…how about the electricians who walk around the plants like lords in feudal times, making people wait on them for countless hours while they drag ass…so they can come in on the weekend and make double and triple time…for a job they easily could have done within their normal 40 hour work week.  How about the line workers who threaten newbies with all kinds of scare tactics…for putting out too many parts on a shift…and for being too productive

(We certainly must not expose those lazy bums who have been getting overpaid for decades for their horrific underproduction, must we?!?)

Do you folks really not know about this stuff?!?  How about this great sentiment abridged from Mr.  Clarke’s sad plea: “over the last few years …we have closed the quality and efficiency gaps with our competitors.”  What the hell has Detroit been doing for the last 40 years?!?  Did we really JUST wake up to the gaps in quality and efficiency between us and them?  The K car vs.  the Accord?  The Pinto vs.  the Civic?!?  Do I need to go on?  What a joke!

We are living through the inevitable outcome of the actions of the United States auto industry for decades.  It’s time to pay for your sins, Detroit.   (You need to fail with the banks right now, in my opinion)

Henry Ford had it right when he asked for a new monetary policy based on energy use in December of 1921.  Labor use is a form of currency.  It is a currency based upon energy use.  Labor is a proof of work function.  It mimics the laws of thermodynamics.  Henry Ford discussed how energy currency could be backed by energy measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh).   He also discussed with the New York Tribune that the currency would “be issued only to a certain definite amount and for a specific purpose.  He wanted to kick start this idea at the Muscle Shoals dam in Alabama.  The Muscle Shoals section of the Tennessee River is treacherous but it produces a lot of energy as the dam provides electrical power, flood control, and a water supply.  Ford realized he could use this energy source to build a more efficient currency.

It has always been understood that Henry Ford was well ahead of his time.  We need the Big three to remember the lesson Ford gave us in 1921.  Ford took shots at the banking cartel in 1921, which are basically the same financial institutions and family members running the world’s finances today. “It’s simply a case of thinking and calculating in terms different from those laid down to us by the international banking group to which we have grown so accustomed that we think there is no other desirable standard,” Ford stressed.

I attended an economic summit last week where brilliant economist, Alan Beaulieu, from the Institute of Trend Research, surprised the crowd when he said he would not have given the banks a penny of “bailout money”.  “Yes, he said, this would cause short term problems,” but despite what people like politicians and corporate magnates would have us believe, the sun would in fact rise the next day… and the following very important thing would happen…where there had been greedy and sloppy banks, new efficient ones would pop up…that is how a free market system works…it does work…if we would only let it work…”

But for some nondescript reason we are now deciding that the rest of the world is right and that capitalism doesn’t work – that we need the government to step in and “save us”…Save us my ass, Hell – we’re nationalizing…and unfortunately too many of our once fine nation’s citizens don’t even have a clue that this is what is really happening.  But, they sure can tell you the stats on their favorite sports teams…yeah – THAT’S really important, isn’t it…

Does it ever occur to ANYONE that the “competition” has been producing vehicles, EXTREMELY PROFITABLY, for decades in this country?…  How can that be???  Let’s see… Fuel efficient…  Listening to customers… Investing in the proper tooling and automation for the long haul…

Not being too complacent or arrogant to listen to Dr. W. Edwards Deming four decades ago when he taught that by adopting appropriate principles of management, organizations could increase quality and simultaneously reduce costs. Ever increased productivity through quality and intelligent planning… Treating vendors like strategic partners, rather than like “the enemy”… Efficient front and back offices… Non union environment…

Again, I could go on and on, but I really wouldn’t be telling anyone anything they really don’t already know down deep in their hearts.

I have six children, so I am not unfamiliar with the concept of wanting someone to bail you out of a mess that you have gotten yourself into – my children do this on a weekly, if not daily basis, as I did when I was their age.  I do for them what my parents did for me (one of their greatest gifts, by the way) – I make them stand on their own two feet and accept the consequences of their actions and work through it.  Radical concept, huh?… Am I there for them in the wings?  Of course – but only until such time as they need to be fully on their own as adults.

I don’t want to oversimplify a complex situation, but there certainly are unmistakable parallels here between the proper role of parenting and government.  Detroit and the United States need to pay for their sins.  Bad news people – it’s coming whether we like it or not. The newly elected Messiah really doesn’t have a magic wand big enough to “make it all go away.”  I laughed as I heard Obama “reeling it back in” almost immediately after the final vote count was tallied…”we really might not do it in a year…or in four…” Where the Hell was that kind of talk when he was RUNNING for office?

Stop trying to put off the inevitable folks … That house in Florida really isn’t worth $750,000… People who jump across a border really don’t deserve free health care benefits… That job driving that forklift for the Big 3 really isn’t worth $85,000 a year… We really shouldn’t allow Wal-Mart to stock their shelves with products acquired from a country (China) that unfairly manipulates their currency and has the most atrocious human rights infractions on the face of the globe…

That couple whose combined income is less than $50,000 really shouldn’t be living in that $485,000 home… Let the market correct itself folks – it will.  Yes it will be painful, but it’s gonna’ be painful either way, and the bright side of my proposal is that on the other side of it all, is a nation that appreciates what it has…and doesn’t live beyond its means…and gets back to basics…and redevelops the patriotic work ethic that made it the greatest nation in the history of the world…and probably turns back to God.

Sorry – don’t cut my head off, I’m just the messenger sharing with you the “bad news”. I hope you take it to heart.

Gregory J. Knox, President

Knox Machinery, Inc.

I love Gregory J Knox and I wrote him a letter to tell him how I felt about his response.  If I ever need something he makes, I will buy it.

^^^^^That was posted on my FB page 2/21/2009.

Mr. Knox was my Satoshi before Satoshi existed.

SUMMARY

Embrace the suck of adversity. Never be afraid of speaking wht you believe to be the current truth to your audience. Begin to step out of your shell and accept your success. Your reality is important to share with the world. You don’t need to write or speak well, you just need to “connect well” with your audience. Sometimes that audience will be your friends, family, or an audience of 50,000, or maybe just you and your doctor in an office.  Knox is a friend of mine who’s experiece during the financial crisis brought the real problems of America into a clearer focus for me.   

You need to learn to connect your ideas to them effectively to change your reality. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel by how you connect with them. It is always a good day to be grateful for all of life , grateful for large blessings and small.

When we find our path, we must not be afraid of the unknown. Many adverse experiences in life pre condition our minds to be ready for a new way to adapt.  We need to have sufficient courage to endure our own mistakes or those our government makes.  Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools we must use to show us the proper trail to blaze. When we speak from the heart, people will begin to meet you where you are today. Today, begin to speak well because your tongue will learn to deliver the message of your heart.  That message will resonate to your audience and it may ready them for the coming storm.

Leave me a comment below about how you where orange pilled.

BITCOIN #40: FAST VS SLOW CURRENCY FAILURE

What would it look like to you?

Today’s inflation number came in at 8%.  That number is heavily maufactured.

Bitcoin inflation rate currently sitting at 1.7%, continues to follow its preprogrammed, fully predictable downwards trajectory. The Fiat inflation rate is now 8% if you follow fuzzy math. 1980 math says it is 17.5%
The average person isn’t smart enough to be scared enough to understand the implications of this lit fuse.

Global inflation rates:

🇺🇸 – 7.9%

🇷🇺 – 9.2%

🇧🇷 – 10.4%

🇦🇷 – 50.7%

🇹🇷 – 54.4%

🇻🇪 – 472%

Bitcoin is the escape hatch.

THE SLOW CHANGE

Implications?

I expect a de-dollarization event sooner than most think. Some believe this is already happening in slow motion because the Federal Reserve can support the bid on treasuries all day long. They can buy all assets back and adding them to their balance sheet. Those who talk about kicking the can down the road while hoping for a long-drawn-out economic reset believe this scenario is playing out presently in markets in slow motion already.  Black Rock and Vanguard are doing the Fed’s dirty work now buying up assets.

THE KT EVENT FOR CURRENCY:  RAPID CHANGE

What would it look like?

But what happens if a government like Russia or China become sick and tired of the Fed’s action to replace the failed Bretton Woods experiment?

The Fed’s Nightmare: The Big One

I’d like to remind you this is not a prediction.  It is just a thought experiment that shows that this outcome has a non-zero chance of occurring.  Moreover, it should be obvious that markets are not always continuous in how things trade.

Early one-morning news item “x” occurs.

News item ‘X’ might be:  People’s Bank of China has just announced that it has replaced a large percentage of its USD reserves with gold and bitcoins to pay Russia for oil and gas since the BIS has canceled the Russian Central bank’s accounts.

Realizing the negative implications the US stock indices are quickly down 4%.  Counterintuitively the 10-year yield is up and bonds are sold.  The dollar goes screaming higher as people look for liquidity.  The Fed open market desk intervenes but is overwhelmed.  Soon stocks are down 7% triggering the first circuit breaker 15-minute pause.

Meanwhile, gold is strongly bid and is up $50 per oz. while Bitcoin records its largest move in months.  The Fed comes on the tape saying it is prepared to provide whatever liquidity is needed including swap lines overseas and will do “whatever it takes”.  The market re-opens and is immediately down 15% triggering the second circuit breaker.  Fed is on the tape again mentioning that they will seek authorization to buy stocks as needed, in the hope to calm the market. I believe they will call it the “The Save America’s IRA Plan”.  75% of people below in the picture do not know or believe their life savings in retirement accounts are now at risk of evaporation.

The market re-opens and is immediately down 20% closing for the balance of the day.   It is now 11 am.  Meanwhile, gold is bid up to $120 per ounce, but there are few sellers.  Bitcoin is now up $40,000 per coin from its daily open.  The bond market continues to sell off as bondholders seek to raise cash with which to buy gold and Bitcoin.    Lots of commentators are on financial TV and media are flummoxed because they never saw the tsunami coming.  Some countries did.  They were initially mocked and now their citizens are laughing at Americans who are becoming more poor than the poorest people in El Salvador every minute.  We call those people: Lamar’s tribe.

These “financial experts” remain confused and seek to calm the masses on mass media.  But it is a long afternoon.   All afternoon bonds are relentlessly sold and gold and Bitcoin are relentlessly bid.  This is the largest wealth transfer in the history of humans happening at the speed limit of the Big Bang.  Those who are in the know understand what this is.  CURRENCY FAILURE.  Full stop.  Every government the USA bombed in the 20th centrury is now in better shape than the USA.  Most of them converted some of their Treasuries to Bitcoin and gold before the USA did.

No one should hope for this scenario above, it would be very bad even for people holding BTC and gold. Let’s hope for a gradual transition away from fiat. You don’t have wealth if there is nothing left to spend it on.  Peer to peer trade is now the way of the world in most cities.  Some of these cities have been doing it for years now.

Abject fear is felt by every financial asset holder in the world.  This is for all the marbles and the Fed’s credibility is gone.  The emperor is fucking naked and everyone agrees on it and can see it.   Overnight gold trades up $200 per ounce and Bitcoin is up to $100,000 per coin by morning.   The stock markets struggle to open and when they do they immediately plunge 20% and are closed again for the day.  Meanwhile, gold is now up over $400 per ounce at $2,300 and Bitcoin is trading at $200,000 per coin.

President Biden makes a Presidential address and announces the closing of the financial markets for 10 days.   Gold goes $10,000 bid, $100,000 offer, but none is really available. Gold becomes scarce.  Bitcoin trades through $400,000 per coin on its way to $2,000,000 per coin.  Every 10 minutes another Bitcoin block is produced like clockwork.  Nothing happening in global financial markets is affecting the operation of the Bitcoin network.  Many HODLers are smiling.

Only foreigners can buy it because the US banking system is closed.  ATMs are down.  Credit cards do not work.  Any commerce that is taking place is done via barter via peer-to-peer networks like Bitcoin.

One too many coins in the fuse box short all financial circuits.  The false assumption that the Fed could always save the system is utterly and completely destroyed.  Bitcoin and Gold have performed their role as “sovereign CDS”.

Now you are at a new world order where the people’s money sits on the throne as the global reserve currency.  If your network of friends and family have no hard assets they see their life passing before their eyes every day they wake up.

Millennials prepare to take care of their parents AND children at the same time. Municipal-sized communities band together to help sort out the most immediate needs. New leaders emerge on merit. 10 years later we are moving forward in prosperity.

^^^^^Millennials will be The Hero Generation of this Fourth Turning

Ok, but what comes days after? Full hyperbitcoinization? Confiscation attempt? Volatility for sure follows…Are you ready for it?  Do you have “hope” after this event?

Chaos will reign but those who know from chaos comes order will win.  Soon thereafter, a leader who understands sound money will emerge.  Problems will be solved, order returns and chaos retreats.  Certain environments will experience less chaos then others.  Zipcode will matter deeply.

The take home: Do not just react emotionally to this event…

Instead quickly feel that emotion, let it go, process and respond.  Those who act properly will limit the chaos they experience.  If you have the wrong people around you during this event they will affect your perception of it.

You must share your critical thinking skills before, during, and after this event to help you be a leader for your tribe.  Failures allow us to  realize our fullest self, and accomplish our biggest goals.

I’d tell you to compare this event and its failure to being “On Tilt”, a poker term which simply means not being able to think clearly after losing a big hand.

And that’s really a great analogy and we’ve all experienced it already, right?

Every time we encounter failures, it’s a natural tendency for us not to be in the best mental state.

Because emotions tend to overflow everything in failures.

But, what matters is how soon do we get ourselves recovered and learn from it to not let it happen again.

Those who are most wise will know to file the failure experience away, make it part of our identity, never go down that road again, and get back to what really matters in life.

QUANTUM ENGINEERING #5: WHAT IS REDOX & WHY IT MATTERS

How does the cell know what size and shape it should be? Many cells alter their shape to provide different functions, like microglia. Even more complex is the question as to how organs, limbs, and creatures know what size and shape they should be when they are growing. How do the cells know how and where to form an organ? How does the creature know how to rebuild a severed limb to the correct size, shape, and orientation?

Being locked up is one thing for a person, but to have no concept of what confinement on this planet means while being powered by the electric and magnetic fields of the sun is critical.  What might mean?  I believe what it might mean for life on this planet is an unbelievable myopia of the smrtest living creature evolution has created to date.  Those silly talking monkey just may remain wholly ignorant the power of Nature’s ability to sculpt life in terms of the physics of light.  If this can happen, they might live for thousands of years and dominate Earth for a short period of time while never having understood what drives life at its core.  Remaining ignorant of the power of light’s redox power might be a thousand year struggle that makes it unfathomable for a person of science to find the truth.

Man’s five senses are all electromagnetic sensors at some quantum level that are designed to capture the vastness and the immensity of information/energy our cosmos and confine it to the limited real estate of the sensory organs to understand all the complexity of the universe.  No one sees the symmetry of this confinement.

Every artist on this planet is a master of some aspect of confinement.  Even a writer, an author, a simple blogger can harness the vastness and the immensity of the cosmos and confine it to the limited pages of the paper or a computer screen. This perspective of nature makes it much easier for me to surrender my life to the being confined by nature in the best environments nature builds as time elapses during our species existence. What is the lesson it has taught me as a decentralized physician?  Anything not forbidden by nature will certainly happen; the question is for us to answer, is when, where, and how does the organization of life happen.  There are thousands of these same questions found in published science.  They include how do astrocytes and neurons know the exact networks they should form in our central and peripheral nervous system.  With respect to COVID, how do immune cells know how to travel through very complex differing 3D environments?   How did the sun, your city, and your choices around light and its electrical fields drive this process?

An equally difficult question has been addressed in the literature by redox power as to how the cell knows exactly what shape a coded sequence in a protein will take. Both cells and microbes alter the codes of their protein toxins that require extremely detailed and accurate shapes. In fact, modern science cannot calculate what shape a 400 amino acid coded sequence will be when it folds into a protein.  Is this what Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease really are?  Are they photoelectric diseases?  My forum has threads that provide answers to these questions.

It would take all the supercomputers together two thousand years to calculate the folding of one average protein. Yet, proteins assemble into the exact shape in a millisecond, helped by very complex chaperone molecules. Cells routinely edit their messenger RNA with alternative splicingto make a whole variety of shapes. How do cells know how to do this?  What is the information data cells use to do this?

Might it be the electric power you collect from the sun and Earth and store and transform in your mitochondrial DNA?

Could manufactured mRNA says from a COVID jab alter this process once a human complied with a government mandate?

Research now shows from many research labs:

Remember the 1951 paper I mentioned that Turing wrote on morphogenesis?  

Now we have more information he and Shannon were right that information and energy are linked at the most fundamental levels.  It turns out redox power links them.  

For all of these questions, it is hard to imagine the information of the 3D shape being inside one cell, or even a group of cells. It seems more likely that a field of information somehow guides these processes. Is this evidence for an electrical field of information forming 3D shapes of cells, organs and creatures, also, related to the influence of mind?

Recent research shows that electric potentials in non brain cells are a signal for creating patterns during development and during re building of organs. This information of different field potentials surrounding individual cells can give information for the developing organ.

Now, research from the laboratory of Dr. Michael Levin (the video above) is demonstrating new ways that cells signal with electricity and the great importance of electrical properties for individual cells and tissues. Electrical fields are a function of cellular redox potential.  The sun powers all the electric fields generated in a cell.

Levin’s papers on the topic describes how electrical gradients and fields are critical in the 3D function and shape of cells and organs. Professor Levin notes that cancer cells use electric gradients for many purposes. In fact, aberrations in electrical processes can lead to cancer. Differences in electrical potential in cells are important in determining whether a cancer metastasizes and electrical states in one cell can have effects on distant cells, triggering metastasis. These electrical potentials in one cell can signal other cells that trigger genetic networks and epigenetic effects.  Cancer does not come from DNA/RNA defects.  It comes from bad electrical signaling.

The electric state of a cell is determined by many complex factors, but it is clear redox power is the critical factor. What are some of the other factors that augment redox power? One is the opening and closing of ion channel proteins, which control the movement of charged particles (ions) across the cell membrane. Changes of the cells’ electrical potential via the activity of ion channels are shown to be able to suppress or trigger cancer. The chemical changes are always preceded by electrical changes in cells.  These electric changes are wholly tied to the redox state in that cell system.  This is how ALAN and abnormal electric and magnetic fields from technology lead to disease. Another factor is electrical synapses that transfer electricity from one cell to another via their membrane system.  That system is adjacent to the cell water.  Therefore, membrane integrity and water fidelity in cells should be factors of critical importance to redox potential and to health.

Differential ion channel activity in the body sets up specific patterns of voltage potential throughout tissues. During development, these electrical properties of cells determine what types of cells they become. This also explains how redox power links to tissue repair and to morphoology.  This is why Dr. Doug Wallace has found disease seems to vanish when redox power is reinstated in the mitochondrial colony in cells.

Different electrical properties of cells affect what type of cells are made from stem cells, how much reproduction goes on, where cells travel to and their shape and orientation. Electrical gradients and fields certainly affect travelling immune cells, stem cells, and all brain cells. They also exert profound effects on other somatic cell types during embryonic development and regenerative repair. Electrical properties are simultaneous with chemical metabolism using genetic network processing. They are critical for healing wounds and responding to infections. They determine the symmetry and shape of organs, cells, and the organelles in cells.  That size and shape change is fractally embedded in our proteins size and shape in systems.  All these changes are ciphers of redox changes and electrical state in a cell.  People forget electrical charge is conserved quantum mechanically.

Charge conservation is not like energy conservation ideas found in the laws of thermodynamics.  Energy cannot be created or destroyed.  Neither can charges.  But charge confirmation does not mean that individual positive and negative charges cannot be created or destroyed. Why?  Electric charge is ONLY carried by subatomic particles such as electrons and protons. Charged particles that carry electrical information and energy can be created and destroyed in elementary particle reactions.  It turns out varying redox potential allows for the alteration of electrons and protons inside of mitochondria and many other organelles in cells.  That electrical variation creates tipping points in cells.  Can you give us an example of this?

In animals electrical information generated in mitochondria is more crucial than genes. It is the electrical properties of the regions in tissues that form the two eyes that determine where the eyes will go in any organism. When this electrical property is altered, the eye forms in different places. This effect cannot be replicated outside of the head by any of the master eye genes man has discovered.  Redox power trumps genetic power.  If this idea offends you, that is a good.  Our older beliefs are slowing down innovation in medicine.

These electrical redox reactions dominate cell physiology.  Centralized MDs seem to be ignorant of this.  Decentralized mitochondrial physicians better know the implications of this to help you.

Redox potential is king for health. Why? It turns out, our electrical activity is driven by redox power and it can drive downstream genetic changes in the nucleus.  That nuclear change is preceded by electrical changes in membranes in cells.   For example, just changing the electrical gradient can dramatically change the cell’s behavior. Becker showed this in his experiments on salamanders and other animals. After an amputation, controlling the voltage potentials of wound cells causes the regrowth of a limb. The specification of the details appears to exist in the electrical field. At specific regions of the animal’s body, either a tail or limb grow due to the electrical signaling, which kickstarts a “build whatever goes here” program.  I mentioned this above when I spoke about where an eye grows in you.

What does this idea imply?

Altering the electric fields by altering redox power from mitochondria transforms energy in an organs. Since energy = information, we now can see how information flow is handled by biology. Redox change alters the information and the biological results cells can experience.

KEY POINT IN THE BLOG:   How do changes in electric fields by mitochondria change morphology? They do it by inside the cell, by altering many membranes that link the inner mitochondrial membranes to protein machinery. This connection extends to the nuclear membrane where RNA/DNA remain coiled in stillness. The nucleus becomes active with altered redox signaling. In this way, the mitochondria as an organelles becomes THE critical information center of the endoplasmic reticulum where proteins are assembled and morphology manifests phenotype. Electrical potentials and information fields in mitochondra exist to shape and sculpt living cells.  This is how redox power works to keep you well.

The electric field generation and variation trumps biochemistry. This is fundamentally why centralized medicine is failing the public. Centralized medicine focuses in on biochemistry and DNA gene changes instead of realing that the electric fields created in mitochondria control both of these things by altering electric signaling because cells use protein ion channels imbedded in mammalian membranes. DHA is an electrical fat that is designed to alter the ability of electrons and protons when the electrical potential of the membrane is altered by charge released by mitochondrial at the inner mitochondrial membrane.  This is why all mammalian membranes have massive amounts of DHA present in them. These proteins affect distant actions and are very involved in creating the overall gradients.

The physics of light control redox power and redox power controls the morphology of proteins. The size and shape of proteins determine the thermodynamic capabilities in a cell and this is what determines physiology and phenotype. Genes do not control this system. Light does by using electrical power to sculpt electrons and protons using charge variation.

Life exists at a tipping point of the redox potential.  At a certain electrical potential, life without the constrainment of disease becomes possible. Below such a level only life with disease becomes possible.  Below this level life is impossible and death is the likely probability.  All of this links back to charge conservation of the atoms in various parts of cells.

At cellular tipping points, information & energy transfer becomes electric and the it generates faster learning and is capable of  improving adaptation to an environment.  As redox power drops the opposite is more likely.  Human cellular redox power range is between -200mV and -400mV.

^^^^to get to -400mV the IMJ of the cristae need to align in perfect size and shape.  Optimized ATP production occurs at these levels.   All scientists and physicians are taught to believe and think of ATP is the only high energy molecular currency a cell has.  Ling was the first to show that the energy math of ATP hydrolysis could not explain the resting membrane potential that was measured in biochemistry labs in the 1950s.  Moreover, he showed mathematically, that the ATP hydrolysis rate could not explain the shortfall of the Na/K ATPase in Peter Mitchell’s chemiosmotic model.  The proposed ATPase energy calculations broke the second law of thermodynamics by a 5 fold margin!  Biochemical reactions of the hydrolysis of ATPase breaks the second law of thermodynamics.  It is hard to fathom how no one saw the fallacy of this core biochemical belief based upon the negative energy balance alone.

The hydrolysis of the high energy phosphate bond produces only -7.3 kcal/mol.  When you compare this value to the almost -60 kcal/mol of oxidized NADH at cytochrome one in the inner mitochondrial membrane,  it becomes clear the real power found in a cell is electronically induced and not driven by the hydrolysis of ATP.  Electronic induction is something a quantum cell does, not one that is taught in modern cell theory’s books.

Take a look at this eye-opening picture above that clearly shows where the power comes from that drives all biochemical reactions. It is electrical power of the redox state of cytochromes.  This came from National Center for Biotechnology Information, Copyright Exp Gerontol. 2010 March; 45(3): 173–179.)

What do the 2 pictures above say to a mitochondriac?

Electric power generation in our mitochondria is the key to a healthy long life.

Those two pictures represent all on needs to understand about what makes up the human biological redox energy scale. The highly reduced energy levels of NADPH, GSH, and NADH are used to power catabolism with molecular oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor. The step-wise electron transport in mitochondria is used to generate ATP. ATP in this scenario of power generation is a secondary and lower denomination of energy currency.

Since the reducing energies of NADH, NADPH and GSH are all incredibly massive as seen above on the left of the picture above, they can unilaterally provide the power and energy for a large number of reduction reactions in the cell including glycolysis, ATP generation, disulfide bond formation in numerous enzymes that allow for proper protein folding in all cells. This includes the brain, all the ABC transporters, all signaling molecules and all known transcription factors. The driving force for these reactions depends on the relative concentrations of the oxidized and reduced forms of each redox couple of NADPH, NADH, and glutathione.

Understanding these relationships mathematically then becomes the next step in understand redox power for the mitochondriac.  What math are we speaking of?

It is called a Pareto distribution or the Bradford power laws. The reason why people learn faster is because they become more attentive to detail and complexity to increase their understanding. Once the first few “survivors” get it, the rest follow by standard power law mathematics. Biology works on the same laws. Evolution used this design in our mitochondrial DNA for ultimate survival. The redox power of the cell varies in different environments.  It is that electrical variation that sculpts DNA/RNA.  The type of DNA expression, in turn, controlled how energy could be transformed to turn on or turn off parts of the DNA genome in the nucleus.  Ultimate survival, therefore is the result of a decentralized epigenetic phenomena of this biologic power law. If a few initially survive the “energy adversity” in the environment, mtDNA signaling can then change and sculpt mRNA and DNA to change the program of life to increase health and eventually survival.

Electric fields vary in environments.  The sun is the major thing that causes the variation.

And why shouldn’t this surprise anyone? Because this is precisely how plant life does things too! people always forget all food webs link to photosynthetic webs on Earth.  Mitochondrial biology reverse engineers the photosynthetic process.  The first step in photosynthesis uses the charge separation of water to create an electric redox power using sunlight to create a directional transfer of energy from the sun to water.

Once that program works, in a varying environment, the Bradford power laws state that the growth of surviving life can be explosive.  This helps explain the Cambrian explosion better than Darwin’s theories do.  This is precisely why evolution has sped up the evolution of life since that time.  This really is seen in the primate clade of mammals where humans have undergone the rapid development of our neolithic cortex in our brain at the expense of our paleolithic genes in our body. We are in the dark about these mathematical laws and their implications but they all control how energy/information is transformed in decentralize networks like Nature.

In one of many circular genetic processes found in complex life, the actions of the genetic machinery are controlled by electrical gradients and the elaborate signaling of the genetic networks create the electrical gradient. Patterning occurs by a continuous interplay of genetics and physics. This is a core principle in decentralized medicine. This is the basis of mitochondrial medicine.

For all you non believers, try searching PubMed for redox or glutathione and inflammation and see what links you find.  I got over 120,000 hits at the medical school library search I did in 2010.  You will notice 80% of those all link to nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF kappa beta).  It is no coincidence that NF kappa beta keeps showing up in the literature as a “redox-sensitive transcription factor” critical to immune and inflammatory responses in humans.  This defines a Paretto distribution.

That is the basis of redox signaling in cells.

If you go back and re-read all my early leptin blogs from years ago, you will see me constantly mention IL-6, NF kappa beta and TNF alpha with leptin.  Now you know why I began with those blogs.  All of these cytokines are activate the NRF2, KEAP1, and redox pathways in cells.  Redox potential is the key to a healthy life.

Understanding biochemistry alone is a losing proposition from a centralized MD or their patients. It is however great news for Big Pharma. They can take full advantage of the myopic view. Decentralized MDs know their patients improve with redox therapies. In fact, research shows that the electrical influences cannot be reduced to simple chemistry inside of a cell. This is why allopathic and functional medicine are paradigms that won’t offer disease reversals.  Both enrich the centralized controllers or ideas they push.

How do we know this?

Electrical gradients of individual cells and many cells contribute to the creation of the 3D shapes and functions of organs and creatures. Examples of this include the creation of the embryonic eye, the head, and the regeneration of limbs exactly to size. Becker showed us this in the 1960s and biology still has not recognized its critical lesson. We are looking in the wrong genome for health. Health begins with electrical field improvement. It will not improve with altercation of the RNA and DNA machinery.

Our colony of mitochondria are decentralized time machines.  Sunlight is the power source that creates more time in life for us.

Big Pharma knows this and they spend dollars studying the wrong things to keep customers and not reverse diseases. For movement of cells, when electrical and chemical gradients are in competition, the electrical gradient wins.  Big Pharma knows this and keeps centralized MDs from learning this in medical school curriculums. When you limit what MDs learn you create a paradigm of belief you can profit from.

QUANTUM ENGINEERING #4: SUICIDE BY LIGHT

Pictured above is the “former” lead singer of LinkinPark. He killed himself a few years ago. His best friend Chris Cornell formerly the lead singer of Soundgarden did the same a few months before him. Was this a coincidence or was there a reason for it that modern science misses?  Are these two deaths related in some way? Might it be their choice around light? Might it be their former jobs? Might it be tied to the environment their jobs required of them?

This filmed event was done at the guest house I stayed at the night before my Vermont talk. I was interviewed live in the video for 1.5 hours and I was asked questions about how blue light affected shift workers. 40 or so of my members were in attendance and one of them put this discussion on tape for you all to hear. My videographer told me this was one of the best interviews I have ever done. I’ll let you be the judge of this.

Music deaths are now so commonplace that none of them surprise us. Why is this link present in musicians? Most musicians perform at night under blue light. They use electricity to electrify acoustic instruments, sitting within that power grid and under blue light and wearing sunglasses day and night blocking their eyes from the sun over decades.

On April 14, 1994, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that Cobain was “high on heroin when he pulled the trigger”. The paper reported that the toxicological tests determined that the level of morphine in Cobain’s bloodstream was 1.52 milligrams per liter and that there was also evidence of valium in his blood at 27 years old.  Valium is a drug that interacts with GABA and the perihabenular nucleus in the thalamus.  Is this small fact important?

Health is the slowest form of death we create in life and few realize it. Why did Soundgarden’s lead singing need the drugs he did? It was due to a lack of the protein POMC in his brain because the solar signals his brain needed never were received. When POMC is lowered, so are dopamine and melatonin. Melanopsin signaling is destroyed in both the eye and skin in musician shift workers. This alters their attitude and mood chronically too. When dopamine is low in the eye and brain so are melatonin levels in those areas too. This leads to a circadian de-coupling on a massive scale. When you add in other drugs that alter time perception like Ativan/Valium you cause a frequency collapse.

Suicide by manufactured light in this group of people becomes explainable when you see the quantum fabric of nature unfold for a brain slowly being robbed of its mitochondrial redox potential. This is why physicians are now seeing a rising suicide rate in themselves too.  I loved Cornell’s music but we have to get the word out to them that acoustic and not electric music can save them. His best friend, pictured below, was famous for wearing sunglasses indoors during the day. Bennington of LinkinPark killed himself a few months after Chris Cornell. He hung himself after his drinking relapsed. Underneath his iPhone, found  beside him was his bit-off fingernails. This is a classic sign of anxiety disorder.  Anxiety disorders are also linked to altered signaling in the perihabenular nucleus.  That is the second time I mentioned this part of the brain.

Ask yourself why this KEEPS happening in this industry? This is not a new trend. Elvis Pressley, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison all killed themselves early in their careers. Musicians have felt the need to play their concerts indoors under man-made light shows light and they love tattoo’s on their skin. They rarely play gigs outside in the sun. Does putting a tarp over your eye and skin affect the melanopsin system badly? Is this another factor in why they die by their own hand? My members know I have a very popular frontman in a well-known band as one of my key pupils. He asked me for help over 12 years ago and he reconfigured his life to avoid this tragic outcome for himself. He is now dominating his field after rebuilding his music life by controlling his light environment.

Uncle Jack tell me a bit about this PERi-HABENULAR NUCLEUS link and the human eyes

^^^^This is the basic wiring diagram through the central retinal pathways that lead to suicide by blue light.

Modern Music can kill us because of how we use it and the environments it is created. Swedish DJ Avicii recently killed himself. All his gigs were done at night. He also happened to come from a high latitude steepening his mitochondrial risks. The DJ, born Tim Bergling, killed himself with a shard of broken glass from a liquor bottle, according to sources privy to details about his death who spoke with TMZ. They said there had been massive bleeding associated with the self-inflicted wound. Drinking and cutting oneself is classic behavior of a low dopamine state. His case is very interesting to me because it was linked to broken peripheral gut clocks and his melanopsin/retinol link. Avicii had a history of pancreatitis partly brought on by heavy drinking and had his appendix and gallbladder removed in 2012 before he released his debut LP. These symptoms all link back to the light he lived under as the picture from my June 2, 2018, Vermont talk on melanopsin shows below. He was 28 when he killed himself.

Modern music and modern light kill when we make it artificially and modulate its frequencies. This induces topologic changes in the charge on our skin that uncouple retinol from melanopsin that lead to a lowering of both melatonin and dopamine. This is how the path to suicide begins. That path is littered with chronic mitochondrial dysfunction and lowered mitochondrial melatonin production that leads to excessive tattooing, drug use, poor sleep, drinking, and behavioral change.

We need to go back to the basics with music. It is based upon a fractal organization to timing too. That is linked to altered dopamine levels in the eye and the frontal lobes linked to the light we abuse.  That timing is linked to the human brain’s alpha waves on the EEG. When melanopsin is off so is the alpha wave on EEGs. When the alpha wave goes then we can find problems in others waves that signify a sleep disorder. This sleep disorder always precedes sickness, suicide, and death.

Can we see the evidence of light toxicity in the skin before it afflicts the brain?  Yes, we can.  People often forget that the skin and brain comes from the same tissue layers in the human embryo.  Because of this linkage your skin and your eyes tells your decentralized physician to look deeper into your health to see how bad you are afflicted with light toxicty.

This is a before and after picture of someone who was light toxic and became light competent under the direction of a a decentralized mitochondriac physician.

Michael Jackson is a perfect example of this dynamic effect below. Sunglasses at night under a massive light show. He also had melanopsin induces autoimmune skin condition called vitiligo. Vitiligo is improved by full-spectrum UV light. This is light he rarely saw as an adult. Jackson died after convincing a physician to use IV Diprivan on him to allow him to sleep. He suffered from chronic insomnia for decades = lack of melatonin creation inside his colony of mitochondria = lack sunlight = extreme blue light toxicity.

The trend continued with Whitney Houston in her life with drugs and poor sleep. How many young people do we need to see die in the same way before we make the links of why this happening? This is why acoustic music can soothe us and why electrified music can cause massive spiking of evoked potentials that lead to addiction, depression, and suicide. Technology in music brings man inside out of the sun and we’ve created music shows to occur mostly at night when our retinal photoreceptors that provide the light stimulus to make POMC via the eye and in our brain is destroyed. Sunlight creates happiness and keeps us far from moods that lead to a self-induced death with pills, opiates, or a rope. The human brain has many waveforms and frequencies cycling at different rates simultaneously. Moreover, many, if not all, contribute to one’s internal experience of time.  This sense is controlled by dopamine levels and how its frequency in circuits in the brain.   Consider the death of Heath Ledger after his role as the Joker in Batman. Most of the film was done at night and by all reports, his drug and alcohol use expanded while his reality about the role became very warped in delusion. That led to him taking his own life at 28 years old. It does not take very long to see the effect of a broken melanopsin system in the central retinal pathways in humans if you know the signs and symptoms.

Suicide by light is linked to a loss of the internal experience of time in the brain because dopamine is missing. nnEMF can cause massive spikes and losses of evoked potentials in the brain because it decouples calcium channels. Most people do not even know the blue light chromophore in our eyes and skin called the Melanopsin/retinol mechanism that runs on calcium ion flows. Ativan and opiate drugs like this exacerbate the condition. Ativan affects GABA levels in the brain. Ativan is the drug that was found in Soundgarden Chris Cornell and Cobain’s blood plasma after they killed themselves.

When dopamine/melatonin are lacking we can perceive and sense the fractal side of nature. Many mental illnesses are associated with a low dopamine state and those patients report a frozen existence of reality. In those frozen states, humans become able to do things humans normally would not do. Many depressed patients describe their life seems like ‘still photos’ of a flickering vision, like a movie film that is running too slow on the screen. The ability of the brain to keep all these different frequencies in appropriate relationship and order to one another, smoothing the flow of connecting thoughts and actions, is what dopamine helps facilitate. Photons of light come to Earth and to humans in a timeless state. Our brain gives us the sense of time by coupling light frequencies to build time. Dopamine and melatonin are two gears of that mechanism. These chemicals are the “matter” that nature uses as its levers.

It takes matter in cells to create time using UV light photons. By themselves, photons would perceive the world, as frozen. Light photons have an interior temporal indivisibility that prevents the perception of external divisibility. We now know UV light is critical in the creation of dopamine in our eyes with aromatic amino acids which act as photon traps for the timeless light of the sun. Chris Cornell’s lifestyle around his job chronically buried the sun and created a need for drugs because of the missing frequencies…………and therein lies the true story of his demise. This video interview, below, is all about this topic in the music business I did a few years ago before one of my Vermont live talks. Watch it and share it with those you love. Few of us make these connections to the light we live under.

Here is the powerful video laying out the case of why this process happens to shift workers at night.

THE SCIENCE IN THIS BLOG BECAME CLEAR IN 2016-2018 that the eye was the key.  

Can you share with us a disease that shows how light chaos destroys order in cells?

Sure, the one that is becoming all too common is steroid induced psychosis.

When I was a young physicians this disease was really rare.  Today it is becoming very common because of the use of tech screens, indoor living, and a lack of solar exposure.

Centralize medicine does not understand this disease well at all.  The reason for that is they do not understand how the retina was built, and how light creates time from light.

THE QUANTUM BIOLOGY ANGLE

The effects of light on learning and mood via intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells involve a pacemaker- independent role for the suprachiasmatic nucleus as well as distinct circuitry in a region of the thalamus called the perihabenular nucleus.

It appears there are two distinct central retinal brain pathways that mediate the effects of light on learning and mood in mammals.  (below)

In mammals, light detection occurs exclusively in the retina. In addition to classical rod and cone photoreceptors, a subpopulation of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) that express the photopigment melanopsin (Opn4), making them intrinsically photosensitive (ip)RGCs, constitute the third type of photoreceptors besides rods and cones.

At present, 5 subtypes (M1–M5) of ipRGCs have been described in the literature. Their central projections differ amply, reflecting in this variety the multiform nature of the non-image-forming visual functions they participate in such as circadian photoentrainment and sleep regulation. A major ipRGC target is the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), which houses a central pacemaker that orchestrates peripheral clocks to drive circadian rhythmic coherence. (eye clock)

The pathophysiology of this disorder is poorly understood but it follows many other mitochondrial diseases that result in altered cortisol levels from blue light over exposure and solar light under exposure.  This is why it is more common in modern times.  Other diseases like Cushing’s or Addison’s are well known to be associated with abnormalities of the hypothalamo-pituitary- adrenal axis and have the potential to result in mood disorders by disturbing the cortisol pathway as the synthetic steroids activate.

Vitamin C is used up more rapidly when sunlight is missing or exogenous steroids are given to some one.  In fact, any stressor to the system causes rapid decline in the chemicals below.  That decline in part is why pregnenolone steal syndrome occurs in humans under duress.

Vitamin C is a metabolic switch in the human brain: glucose and lactate metabolism are modulated by ascorbic acid.  Ascorbic acid is highly concentrated in the human CNS. All stressors increase glutamate in the human brain.  Why is this?   For this switch to occur, an ascorbic acid flow is necessary between astrocytes/glia and neurons, which is driven by neural activity and is part of vitamin C recycling.

Glutamate release from from neurons that are light/cortisol stressed, stimulate ascorbic acid release from astrocytes.  This can deplete the brain of vitamin D.  When Vitamin C drops you brain needs to use glucose metabolism to operate and it is not efficient to do so.   Ascorbic acid entry into neurons and within the cell inhibits glucose consumption favoring the use of ketones and they do this by stimulating lactate transport.   The take home:  everyone who is light stressed has very low CNS Vitamin C levels and Vitamin C levels in the brain can only be replated by SVCT2 receptors in the blood stream and not from the gut which relies on SVCT1 and is saturable at 1000-1500 mgs per day.  The SVCT2 receptor has no limit on absorption in health.  It is down regulated when inflammatory cytokines are present. (stressors all cause increased cytokines)  See the pics below to make this case for you.

THE KEY POINT IN THIS BLOG BELOW

So what do decentralized MDs know that centralized MDs never learned?  Mood regulation by light requires an SCN-independent pathway linking the ipRGCs melanopsin cells in the retina to a previously unrecognized thalamic region, termed perihabenular nucleus (PHb).

One of the things I have noticed over the last 15 years in this diseases is that all the people who became psychotic with exogenous steroid use all had weak pupillary responses to blue light.  It was secondary to the slow destruction of dopamine and melatonin in the skeletal muscle of the pupil that controls its function.  As both of the chemicals were lowered by blue light the skeletal muscle fiber type of the pupil changed and made the pupillary muscles atrophy and become sluggish in their response to blue light.  Why is the pre-condition important in steroid induced psychosis?

The answer is buried in the picture above.  The central retinal pathways that project to the SCN have to be disrupted when the pupil is sluggish in its response to the blue light stimulus.  This also means that the neuronal projections to perihabenular nucleus in the thalamus are also disrupted and lead to mood disorders.  When these two clinical signs are present, the decentralized clinician knows immediately that light toxicity is an envionmental player harming the patient.  It is a sure sign blue light or nnEMF has disturbed neuronal signaling and metabolism in the cortisol pathways of the brain.  Below is a coronal cut T1 MRI of the brain showing this region.

The habenula is a complex nucleus in the thalamus of humans composed of lateral and medial subnuclei, which connect between the limbic forebrain and midbrain in the brainstem as shown below. Over the past 5 years, the lateral habenula has received considerable attention because of its potential roles in cognition and in the pathogenesis of various psychiatric disorders.

The habenula is an evolutionarily conserved structure in the brain and regulates the central monoaminergic metabolism in humans. Disturbances in monoamine metabolism include a depletion of norepinephrine and suppression of central dopamine in the brain.  This region likely a light relay center for the brain.  It is very close to the pineal gland and the collicular plate which links it to all things visual.  This is why eye changes tells us about the brain’s toxic light effects.  Despite a surge of interest on the habenula in neuroscience since 2016, function of the human habenula remains murky.

For example, the medial habenula is the source of one of the major cholinergic pathways in the brain, relatively few studies have been conducted to understand its roles.  When acetylcholine is destroyed in the brain cognition drops and low ACh is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.  I believe this is how AD begins and develops.

Nicotine addiction operates here as well.  This is why I believe people who wear blue blocking glasses find the use of nicotine difficult over time.  People who are blue light toxic almost seem immune to it.  This is another clue I use in Kruse Longevity Center Farm patients during their work ups to know how badly they are light toxic.

I believe this nucleus hold the clues to many diseases including depression, bipolar disorder, and Parkinson’s disease.  I also believe this pathway is acutely disrupted in people who use exogenous steroids when their brains are low in Vitamin C due to light stress.  Giving these patients synthetic steroids, while they are blue light toxic, hyper activates glucocorticoid receptors preferentially in the SCN, PHb, and the hypothalamus simultaneously, which suppresses the secretion of cortisol by the adrenal glands.

This is why most modern humans have flat lined cortisol cycles when one checks the cortisol levels for them.  Decentralized MDs know to look for it, and centralized MDs think this is quackery because they are ignorant of the neural wiring diagram above from retina to brain.

The slide above tells you how the pathophysiology develops.  The chronic blue light exposure ruins the regeneration of the ipRRGs in the retina.  They rely on optimized dopamine and melatonin levels to keep our timing mechanisms via the SCN intact.  When the photoreceptors cannot regeneration mood disorders can also manifest because of the disruption of the tracts from the IpRCGs to the perihabenular nucleus.

The slide above shows when dopamine control is lost in the central retinal pathways, GABA also will be lowered in the brain.  Remember what I said about all the musicians above who killed themselves?  They were also abusing GABA like drugs.  Most of them smoked as well.  Now you might understand why they were doing it now.  What else happens?  Acetyl choline receptors will drop and as this happens, acetylcholine levels will rise in neural circuits to also lower GABA.

A deficiency in ACh receptors and lowered dopamine levels can mimic myasthenia gravis (check my MG blog on patreon out)  with poor muscle tone.  A deficiency in GABA activity can contribute to certain mental health conditions such as anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and depression. It’s also involved in some physical conditions, including Huntington’s disease, dystonia, and muscle spasticity.  Low dopamine levels are also associated with mood disorders like depression.  These deficits all get worse and eventually are all present at the same time when the human brain begins to contemplate taking its own life.

When you are given exogenous steroids and you do not get enough sunlight, it is the perfect storm to getting steroid induced psychosis.  This is a key point why a lack of sunlight or too much exogenous steroids cause the same problem = MENTAL ILLNESS

CASE DESCRIPTION OF STEROID INDUCED MENTAL ILLNESS

A 35-year-old man information technologist who works in the computer data with prior hypertension (low NO), hyperlipidemia (Low Vit D level), chronic testicular pain, lumbar spinal stenosis and radiculopathy, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder presented to the emergency department, after cutting into his right scrotum because he had seen someone in his shower the previous night, and “they put something in my testicle.” He had taken a kitchen knife to try to remove it. His wife called 911 for his unusual behavior. He stated that there were “bad guys trying to shoot him in the face” and that teams of doctors had “implanted a tracking device in his testicle.” During police response, the patient was noted to be aggressive toward the officers to the point where he had to be pepper-sprayed and handcuffed.

On arrival to the ER, the patient was noted to have his right testicle protruding from a 2-cm scrotal laceration and continued to have persecutory and aggressive behaviors, for which he was placed in restraints and on an order of emergency detention. While in the emergency department, the patient was observed to be oriented to his name, situation, and place but believed the year to be 2009.

His vitals were notable for tachycardia of 120 beats/min. Laboratory results were notable for leukocytosis (white blood cell count of 17.1 (high) 109/L (high)), glucose level of 252 mg/dL, and slight elevations in potassium, aspartate aminotransferase, and alanine aminotransferase. Tests for alcohol, acetaminophen, and salicylates were negative, and the urine drug test was positive for opioids, which was explained by his prescription for tramadol.

On mental status evaluation by psychiatry, the patient was noted to be calm, cooperative, and attentive. He had good eye contact but sluggish pupils to penlight exam. His speech was spontaneous, fluent, and coherent with normal rate and volume. He was alert and oriented to person, place, and situation. He had no aggressive or self-harm behavior.

His mood was reported as “frustrated” and his affect was rather calm. His thought processes were linear and goal directed. However, his thought content was delusional. He denied suicidal or homicidal thinking, intentions, or plans or thoughts of wanting to hurt self or others. He denied auditory or visual hallucinations. He did not appear to respond to internal stimuli. He appeared to have limited knowledge. His family says he he had become cognitively dulled during this event (hippocampus turned off).  He displayed paranoid thought content. Insight into his problems was limited. Judgment was also limited.

Urology was consulted and his testicle was reduced back into his scrotum and the laceration repaired. He was recommended for inpatient psychiatric hospitalization at an outside hospital for his delusions. The whole psychotic episode lasted approximately 24 hours.

On further inquiry, it was noted that he had been seen the previous day at the pain medicine center for chronic genitofemoral neuralgia (testicle pain) and had received an injection of 5 mg of dexamethasone and 0.25% of bupivacaine, along with radiofrequency ablation. He had received steroid injections in the past, even just 2 months earlier, of 15 mg dexamethasone for chronic back pain.

His home medications included bupropion, fluticasone, methocarbamol, olopatadine, pregabalin, testosterone cypionate injection (pregnenolone steal), and tramadol. He was in a stable marriage with three children without any legal troubles. He was a previous smoker, having quit 5 years earlier after 7 years of <0.5 packs per day; he used alcohol socially but used no drugs.

The differential diagnosis at the time included drug use/intoxication (a urine drug test was positive for opioids but the patient was noted to be on tramadol); electrolyte imbalance (abnormalities noted but explained by gross hemolysis); infection (elevated white blood cells but otherwise no signs of infection); hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia (glucose elevated but not at a level typical of diabetic ketoacidosis or a hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state); and psychiatric causes (recent steroid injection, history of psychiatric disease).

CENTRALIZED VS DECENTRALIZED MDs are the key to diagnosis?

The chronic blue light toxicity lead to suppression of the secretion of cortisol by the adrenal glands. This preferential selection creates imbalance between glucocorticoid stimulation over mineralocorticoid receptor stimulation, leading to cognitive impairment and emotional disturbances.

Lewis and Smith reviewed 79 cases of steroid-induced psychosis and found that disturbances in reality testing were reported in 71% of the 79 cases, but only 14% had a psychotic disorder without evidence of significant mood changes or features of a delirium. They found that depression was present in 40.5%, mania in 28%, a mixed state in 7.5%, and delirium in 10% of these cases. Another study found that mania and hypomania were reported most commonly (in 35% of cases), followed by depressive symptoms in 28% and psycho- tic reactions in 24%. The vast majority of these patients develop symptoms <2 weeks from the inductive event and more typically 3 or 4 days after the initiation of corticosteroid therapy, although symptoms can occur at any time, including after cessation of therapy. The symptoms may last anywhere from a few days up to three or more weeks. In most cases, any associated delirium commonly resolves within days and psychosis within a week, though depression or manic symptoms may last up to 6 weeks after discontinuation of steroids.

There are not largely powered studies in the field of steroid-induced psychosis due to its unpredictable nature, but it is an important consideration because it is a stressful and dangerous situation for a patient to experience. Diagnosis hinges on clinician experience by exclusion, and prevention hinges greatly on keeping dosages as low as possible and not prolonging medication regimens beyond what is required.

Melatonin production in your mitochondria from the red light in the sun is the key reason why most circadian/mitochondrial diseases occur.

The use of exogenous steroids acutely in people mimics the effect of blue light toxicity in humans who abuse blue light chronically.  Both cause mental illness on different time scales.  The reason it happens is how the retina is wired to the melanopsin photoreceptors.  Now you are much wiser than your centralized MDs who still remain impotent to explain these complex phenomena to families of people who took their own life.
