We have a choice –
an Eternal Reality
or a Reality Created by something
A Universe Eternal
or an Eternal Creator.
Theologian and philosopher
and stimulator of the religious revival
known as the ” Great Awakening” in the eighteen century,
beautifully summarized this:
Nothing cannot create something.

Far beyond nothing,
Everything to someone.
Everything to God.

how bright is that Light

The World is indeed stranger
than anything our rational mind
A strange concealed order
is now being revealed
by chaos theory,
such as the Mandelbrot set,
of which every magnification reveals
more elaborate layers repeating
in more and more complexity.
These patterns illustrate Infinity,
and represent the incredible
creative and energetic complexity
The more we explore new avenues
of what appears to be
the more illusory our Universe
seems to be.
And as we contemplate
this widening web of illusion,
we are taken ever closer to the
of Human awareness.
We come to realize
more and more,
that explanations of the Infinite
cannot be attained using finite
minds or means.
In our search for something
which may help
in our understanding,
we can contemplate Godel’s theorem,
which states that it is not possible
to know everything about a particular situation
from within that situation.
We must be in a position
outside the arena
of specified activity.
And as our viewpoint widens,
there comes a deeper perspective
which will yield more information.
It is not possible in the rational world
to reach that point
where the highest perspective
has been reached.
can intellectualize intricate
and complex thoughts,
but never truly understand
from within the confines
of our own perspectives
step outside our world
of physical illusion
before the veil of shadows
begins to lift.
“For My Thoughts are
not your thoughts,
neither are your ways My Ways,
declares the Lord.
For as the Heavens
are higher than the Earth,
so are My Ways
higher than your ways
and My Thoughts
than your thoughts.”
– Isaiah 55:8-9
In ancient times
those who addressed
the Spiritual side of Nature,
gained their insight by moving beyond
the confines of the rational physical world.
The Believers and Spiritual Sages
of ancient days
gone far by,
gained access by deep meditation
to a perspective beyond the physical,
to attain a more complete picture
of the physical realm.
“But what is “the Light”?
It is the Love of God in you…
Love is the Life and Light of the Spirit,
it’s fruit is righteousness, kindness and truth.
What was hidden from you since the beginning.
This is not religion.
The truth sets you free.
Know the truth…
because you can lose it.”
we stay within the illusion of physical reality,
it is not possible
using its own internal methods
to understand it.
by looking from a higher level of awareness,
beyond the boundaries of
we can escape the constraints
imposed on us
by our finite physical world.
Access to this awareness
is beyond intellectual activity.
Our intellect can only
confirm its existence.
The clarity we seek
lies deep within us.
Gum disease may be the cause of Alzheimer’s
in New Scientist
My Dear Friends,
here is a VERY GOOD reason to go to the dentist
and get your teeth professionally cleaned
every THREE MONTHS!
“This is the first report showing P. gingivalis DNA in human brains, and the associated gingipains, co-lococalising with plaques,” says Sim Singhrao, of the University of Central Lancashire, UK. Her team previously found that P. gingivalis actively invades the brains of mice with gum infections. She adds that the new study is also the first to show that gingipains slice up tau protein in ways that could allow it to kill neurons, causing dementia.
The bacteria and its enzymes were found at higher levels in those who had experienced worse cognitive decline, and had more amyloid and tau accumulations. The team also found the bacteria in the spinal fluid of living people with Alzheimer’s, suggesting that this technique may provide a long-sought after method of diagnosing the disease.
When the team gave P. gingivalis gum disease to mice, it led to brain infection, amyloid production, tangles of tau protein, and neural damage in the regions and nerves normally affected by Alzheimer’s.
Cortexyme had previously developed molecules that block gingipains. Giving some of these to mice reduced their infections, halted amyloid production, lowered brain inflammation and even rescued damaged neurons.
The team found that an antibiotic that killed P. gingivalis did this too, but less effectively, and the bacteria rapidly developed resistance. They did not resist the gingipain blockers. “This provides hope of treating or preventing Alzheimer’s disease one day,” says Singhrao.
New treatment hope
Some brain samples from people without Alzheimer’s also had P. gingivalis and protein accumulations, but at lower levels. We already know that amyloid and tau can accumulate in the brain for 10 to 20 years before Alzheimer’s symptoms begin. This, say the researchers, shows P. gingivalis could be a cause of Alzheimer’s, but it is not a result.
Gum disease is far more common than Alzheimer’s. But “Alzheimer’s strikes people who accumulate gingipains and damage in the brain fast enough to develop symptoms during their lifetimes,” says Lynch. “We believe this is a universal hypothesis of pathogenesis.”
Cortexyme reported in October that the best of their gingipain blockers had passed initial safety tests in people, and entered the brain. It also seemed to improve participants with Alzheimer’s. Later this year the firm will launch a larger trial of the drug, looking for P. gingivalis in spinal fluid, and cognitive improvements, before and after.
They also plan to test it against gum disease itself. Efforts to fight that have led a team in Melbourne to develop a vaccine for P. gingivalis that started tests in 2018. A vaccine for gum disease would be welcome – but if it also stops Alzheimer’s the impact could be enormous.
