Hold Eternity in Your Hands / First Cancer ‘Living Drug’ / Friday: Monnig Meteorite Gallery

We often see
by the blind
of Light,
as day
appears in our dreams
at  Night.

But,
another language
inscribes
a vision
of our being.

From the Braille
battered into the walls
of victory or defeat,
War
became the History
of our race,
Human
and less,
much less.
.
Now
we discover
on our Horizon,
the Eternity of Night.
For without
Love emitting Light,
nothing,
ultimately,
will exist.

…………… Such is the pathway.

It’s a long, long way
from here to there,
from War
to Peace.
And we
never get near.

We
never find the way
through the mists of doubt,
to the Light
of Day.

No.
We never found
Love,
along the way.

But,
it does exist.
Love
is the only thing
that truly exists.

                       …….  It does exist.

A Child
caressed by the Human Hands
of a Mother’s Love,
is received of
Blessings
from Above.
Such is
the pathway
to hold
Eternity
in Your Hands.

Everything
is created from Love.
That is the only essence;
that is the only substance;
that is the only fiber there is.
So everything that takes form
comes from Love.”

Like tears
we shed in the falling rain,
our reality
perfectly merges
with everything
that surrounds us,
confounds us,
astounds us,
is us.

My Dear Friends,
we
do not exist
apart from anything.
There is no
me
and you.

“Truthfully,
that which we call Life is impossible
without and inseparable from
what we regard as
inanimate.

Just as one can mold thousands
of practically identical grains of sand on a beach
into castles, mermaids or whatever one can imagine,
the innumerable atoms that make up everything on the Planet continually congregate and disassemble themselves,
creating a ceaselessly shifting kaleidoscope of matter.

Ferris Jabr is a contributing writer for
Scientific American.

“Why does the eye
see a thing more clearly in 
dreams
than the imagination
when awake?” 

– Leonardo da Vinci
.
Why is defining Life so difficult?
Why have scientists and philosophers
failed
for centuries
to find a specific physical property or set of properties
that clearly separates the Living from the inanimate?
Because such a property
does not exist.
.
“That Love
is all there is,
is all we know of Love;
it is enough.”
Emily Dickinson
.
Life is an invented concept.
On a fundamental level,
everything that exists is an arrangement of atoms
that fall onto a very large spectrum of complexity,
from a single hydrogen atom
to something as complex as the Human brain.
.
In trying to define Life,
we draw a line at an arbitrary level of
complexity
and loudly proclaim that everything above that level
is alive and everything below it is not.
.
But this division only exists in our
very limited and Human mind.
There is no threshold of complexity
at which a collection of atoms
suddenly becomes alive,
no real distinction between the living
and that we call inanimate.
We fail to define Life
because there is never anything
to define.
.
“If I have the gift of prophecy
and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have a Faith that can move mountains,
but do not have
Love,
I am nothing.”
1 Corinthians 13:2
.

The only thing that truly exists.

In ancient philosophy,
the Greek philosopher

Gorgias
thought that nothing really exists at all
that if anything does exist,
then nothing can be known about it,
and that there is really no way this can be passed on
for others
to understand.
.
Gorgias was simply giving a philosophica:
proof to the fact that all material things
that exists in the World
are perceptions of the mind,
figments of imagination.
.
Quantum physics tells us that reality
is far beyond human perception and intuition.
In other words,
our rational mind and common sense
are not capable of understanding
the true nature of reality.

My Dear Friends,
the highest part of yourself
is a much higher Being,
where the best qualities, gifts, and capacities
of the Soul are found.

Your Humanity connects with the Divine.
Your Superior Being
does exist and is there
to seek the answers to your questions,
attend to your desires,
address your concerns.

We are connected to the Divine.
He is within us.
We are His Children.

“Behold,
what manner of Love
the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called
the sons of God.”
1 John 3:1
.
Go to your Father
in Prayer.
Let your Heart
speak with your Superior Being.
You will have
answers.

If your desires
are Beautiful,
your Blessings
will be the same.

“All of life
is a near-death experience.”

Alan Harris

Today’s idea holds the key
to what your real thoughts are.
They are nothing that you think you think,
just as nothing that you think you see
is related to vision in any way.

There is no relationship between what is real
and what you think is real.
Nothing that you think are your real thoughts
resemble your real thoughts in any respect.
Nothing that you think you see
bears any resemblance
to what vision will show you.

Under all the senseless thoughts and mad ideas
with which we have cluttered up our minds
are the thoughts that we thought with God
in the beginning.
They are there in our minds now,
completely unchanged.
They will always be in our minds,
exactly as they always were.
Everything we thought since then
will change,
but the Foundation on which it rests
is wholly changeless.

Yes, LOVE does exist.

Let us
not
go to our graves
without those we Love
peering into the vast space
of our unfathomable
Love.

The pathway
to inner Peace,
and World Peace,
lies through
the Human Heart.

Let us start
thinking –
with our
Hearts.

Goodnight.

Yes,
and how many deaths will it take
’til he knows,
that too many people
have died?
Bob Dylan

First cancer ‘living drug’ gets go-ahead

The US has approved the first treatment to redesign a patient’s own immune system so it attacks cancer.

The regulator – the US Food and Drug Administration – said its decision was a “historic” moment and medicine was now “entering a new frontier”.

The company Novartis is charging $475,000 (£367,000) for the “living drug” therapy, which leaves 83% of people free of a type of blood cancer.

Doctors in the UK said the announcement was an exciting step forward.

The living drug is tailor-made to each patient, unlike conventional therapies such as surgery or chemotherapy.

It is called CAR-T and is made by extracting white blood cells from the patient’s blood.

The cells are then genetically reprogrammed to seek out and kill cancer.

The cancer-killers are then put back inside the patient and once they find their target they multiply.

‘Enormously exciting

Dr Scott Gottlieb, from the FDA, said: “We’re entering a new frontier in medical innovation with the ability to reprogram a patient’s own cells to attack a deadly cancer.

“New technologies such as gene and cell therapies hold out the potential to transform medicine and create an inflection point in our ability to treat and even cure many intractable illnesses.”

The therapy, which will be marketed as Kymriah, works against acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Most patients respond to normal therapy and Kymriah has been approved for when those treatments fail.

Dr Stephan Grupp, who treated the first child with CAR-T at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, said the new approach was “enormously exciting”.

“We’ve never seen anything like this before,” he added.

That first patient had been near to death, but has now been cancer-free for more than five years.

Out of 63 patients treated with CAR-T therapy, 83% were in complete remission within three months and long-term data is still being collected.

However, the therapy is not without risks.

It can cause potentially life-threatening cytokine release syndrome from the rapid proliferation of the CAR-T cells in the body. This can be controlled with drugs.

New era

But the potential of CAR-T technology goes beyond one type of cancer.

Dr David Maloney, medical director of cellular immunotherapy at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, said the FDA’s decision was a “milestone”.

He added: “We believe this is just the first of what will soon be many new immunotherapy-based treatments for a variety of cancers.

CAR-T technology has shown most promise against different blood-based cancers.

However, it has struggled against “solid tumours” such as lung cancer or melanoma.

Dr Prakash Satwani, a paediatric oncologist at Columbia University Medical, said: “The results haven’t been that great when you compare it with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, but I’m sure the technology will get better in the near future.”

Boosting the immune system is already a cornerstone of modern cancer treatment.

A range of drugs that “take the brakes off” the immune system to allow it to attack cancer more freely have already been adopted around the world.

CAR-T technology, which goes a step further and redesigns the immune system, is at a much earlier stage.

Prof Peter Johnson, the chief clinician at the charity Cancer Research UK, said: “The first genetically modified cell therapy to be approved by the FDA is an exciting step forward.

“We still have a lot to learn about how to use it safely and who might benefit from it, so it is important to recognize this is just a first step.”

The One We Are / Protect Yourself from Radio-frequency Radiation / Friday: Texas Storytelling Festival (Denton)

On
the fevered brow
of our Mother,
this beautiful Earth,
we can place
the calming, cooling
Hand
of our felt Compassion
for one another.

Often,
the only Light
one can see
in the darkness
of the shadows cast over
our Home
by you and me,
is a tiny spark,
emanating from a Love
that can engulf our
whole World,
and Light the
Way.

In the darkness of the shadows.

Life
is a Love Story,
or it becomes
nothing at all.

Hope
is a Heartbeat.
One beat
of the Human Heart.
But,
if it does not
beat for another,
it may not be beating
at all.

                   We need see but one.

Billions of diamonds
cover the ring
that weds us
to this Earth.
And we need see
but one,
the one we are,
to remind us
of the deep,
abiding need
for Her
Love.

“I’ve stumbled on the side
of twelve misty mountains.
I’ve walked and I crawled
on six crooked highways.
I’ve stepped in the middle
of seven sad forests.
I’ve been out in front
of a dozen dead oceans.
I’ve been ten thousand miles
in the mouth of a
graveyard.

And it’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.”
– Bob Dylan

The hardest thing
is to say
goodbye,
goodbye to everything,
everything that is not
Love.
.
But we suddenly realize,
Love is
everything,
and Love is a Gift
from our Father
above,
and Love,
Love is God.
And YOU
are His Child,
a Child of Love,
a Child
of God.
.
“Love is the fundamental essence
of His nature and character
– His very Being.
God is perfect in Love.
God’s Love is manifested
by His absolutely pure desire
to care for, share and give.”
Steve Moody

.
Love
of Life,
is the Life
we give to
Love.
.
The Sun
that rises,
is the same Sun
that sets.
The God
of our Fathers and of our Mothers,
is the God
of our Sons
and our Daughters.
You cannot bury
the Dream
we are.
You cannot ferry
the Love of God
across a River
of no return.
.
“You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

.
Every Spark
of our Compassion
becomes
an Eternal Flame.
Every act
of Kindness
remains the
same.

“Without saying a word,
you can Light up the
dark.
Try as I may
I could never explain.

What I hear
when you don’t say a thing.

You say it best,
when you say
nothing at all.”

Paul Overstreet, Don Schlitz

My Dear Friends,
we are so much MORE,
and in so being,
so much LESS,
than what we perceive ourselves to be.
Philosophers of the past were right,
our senses really do deceive us.

We have been told
our reality is made up of
physical material things
and that our world
is independently existing
and objective.

But quantum physics tell us
is that there is no true
“physicality”
in the Universe.

Atoms are made of focused
vorticies of energy
– miniature tornadoes,
constantly spinning and vibrating
and popping into and out of existence
billions of times each second.

We are made
of atoms.

We are
pure energy,
pure Love.
Each of us
is a Child
of Love,
a Child of
God.

Goodnight.

Here’s what you can do
to protect yourself from potential harm from
radio-frequency radiation:
read more

1. Always use a hands-free headset or the speakerphone setting when talking on your cell phone. Some researchers say a wired headset, especially a “hollow tube” headset you can special-order—which will be labeled as such and uses hollow tubes rather than wires to conduct sound—is the best. But even a Bluetooth wireless headset will reduce your radio-frequency radiation exposure by several thousandfold.

2. Keep the phone off your body. Carry your phone in a purse or bag with the antenna (back of the phone) pointed away from you, not in your pocket or bra. When you’re talking on it (with a headset or on speakerphone) put it on a table in front of you. Just a few inches can substantially reduce your radiation exposure.

3. Text instead of talking. Holding your cell phone away from your head to send text messages exposes you to less radiation than talking on it without a headset.

4. Turn it off. Phones only emit radio-frequency radiation when they’re searching for or receiving a signal, so a phone that’s off or in “airplane mode” is safe.

5. Replace cordless phones with corded models. Cordless phones can emit as much radiation as cell phones, and the charging station constantly emits radiation.

6. Use a low-radiation cell phone. Unless you live in San Francisco, cell phone retailers aren’t required to display the specific absorbency rate (SAR), or the amount of radiation a phone causes your body to absorb. Search FCC.gov/cgb/sar to find out the SAR level of your model, or consult the Environmental Working Group’s online database: EWG.org/cellphones. But no matter how low the SAR of your phone is, it’s still important the phone away from your head and body whenever possible.

7. Keep your cell phone, cordless phone, and wireless modem away from your head. All three will expose you to radio-frequency radiation, so banish all three from the bedroom or, at least, keep them away from your head and body. If you must have wireless Internet, turn off your router when you’re not using it, especially at night—a power strip with a timer can help.

8. Keep your phone fully charged. When a cell phone’s signal strength is weak or blocked, it has to work harder—and consequently emits more radiation.

9. Be wary of devices that claim to block EMF exposure. A Google search yielded 236,000 results for “EMF protection,” most of which were sites selling “protective” devices ranging from pendants and crystals to microchips and herbal remedies. Most experts agree that many are based on quasi-science and there’s no evidence that they work. Some “EMF shields” for your phone can actually increase the amount of radiation that it emits, since they block the signal and the phone has to work harder.

10. Don’t give cell phones to young children as toys or pacifiers. If you occasionally let your small tot play Pac-Man on your cell phone, put it into “airplane mode” so it won’t search for a signal – which means it won’t emit radiation.

11. Take care with older children. Children are more susceptible to potential harm from radio-frequency radiation than adults. If you give your children a cell phone for safety reasons, also give them a headset and encourage them to text or use the speakerphone instead of putting the phone close to their heads.

Every Flower That Is Unfolding / Life Hacks to Help You Lose Weight / Friday: Half Price Books and a Movie (Wonder)

The innate intelligence
of Nature
is far more powerful
and Beautiful

than we can ever
imagine.

Flowers
lift the Spirits
of the Earth.
They sustain Life
with all their
Splendor.

                        They sustain Life.

We can see
every Flower
that is unfolding
as it says
to every Living Thing,
“I Love You”.

And,
as the wind gently whistles
a pale blue sigh
though the lonely leaves
of all the trees,

it plays the music
of Life.

If we listen carefully
we can hear
the wishes of all

Creation
coming True.

          To every Living Thing: “I Love You”.

Beauty
is far more than
what it seems.
The constant
motion of Love,
Beauty begins.
And it never really
changes
its meaning.

Life never really wants
more
than Love asks.
And what does Love
ask?
That you care,
that you share,
that
when you are needed,
you are there.

“Yes,
How many times
must a man look up

before he can see the sky?”
Bob Dylan

As the fingers
of our questions
reach
deep into the pockets
of our minds,
we may find
what we are truly
searching for:
our Love
for
every living thing,
and the Love
of God
in
every living thing,
and in us.

Nothing more
could we ask.

“But ask now the Beasts,
and they shall teach Thee;
and the Fowls of the air,
and they shall tell thee:
Or speak to the Earth,
and it shall teach thee:
and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto Thee.
Who knoweth not in all these
that the Hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
In whose Hand is the Soul
of every living thing,
and the breath of all Mankind.
– Job 12:10

                                 What does Love ask?

Watch the Sun
rise in the
eyes
of one you tell
of all the Love
in your Heart.

Yes,
there is Magic
in the moments
we marry,
that are divorced
of time.

We become
so blind
to the deeper
realities of Life.
The Beautiful Creation
you are
is more surprising
and Mysterious
than the feeble mind
of Mankind can
imagine.

Our transitory existence
goes far beyond
the surface dimensions
of Life.

             God’s Truth is always joined with Love.

My Dear Friends,
Forgiveness,
Compassion
and Hope
can unleash Mysterious
and powerful forces
within.

Yes,
imperfection
is part of
the very fabric
of Human Life.

But,
Divine Perfection
may be found
in the abundance
of God’s Beauty
and Love.
And it is offered
to us in
each
precious moment
we are on
this Earth.

Knowledge
of God’s Truth
is always
joined
with Love.

Divine Perfection is found in the abundance of God’s Beauty.

The energy in Nature
is never lost,
never destroyed,
only transformed.
And
God’s Love
integrates Eternity.
Nothing
is ever lost,
no tear
is ever forgotten,
and no death
is ever
meaningless.

God
is neither beyond us
or outside of us.
He is
within us.
Each one of us
is a Child
of God.

“Do you not know that
YOU

are a Temple of God
and that the Spirit of God
dwells in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16

Regardless
of fate’s fearless frown,
God’s Light
pours down.

Ultimate reality
is always Mysterious
and unfathomable.
God’s presence
everywhere
and in all things
is beyond
Human comprehension.
God’s Spiritual Presence
is deep within
the World of matter,
which He
created.

Discover
the Beauty,
the meaning
and the Joy
of your existence.

In the cold and lonely moments
of uncertainty,
the Words of our Lord
will warm your Heart
and free your Loving mind.

When shadows pale
the horizon of your Being,
the place to be
is behind your Loving smile,
and deep in your Faith,
trusting in
the patient Love
of your Creator.

Goodnight.

               Beauty is far more than what it seems.

” I come to the Garden alone
While the dew is still on the Roses.
And the Voice I hear falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.

And He walks with me,
and He talks with me
,
And He tells me
I am His own.

And the Joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks,
and the Sound of His Voice

Is so sweet that the birds hush their singing.
And the Melody that He gave to me,
Within my Heart is ringing.

And He walks with me,
and He talks with me
,
And He tells me
I am His own.

And the Joy we share as we tarry there,
None other
has ever known.”
Brad Paisley

“If you want to learn to Love better,
you should start with a friend
who you hate.”

Life Hacks to Help You Lose Weight

By Jeffrey Kopman        read more

Several simple life hacks can make a huge difference. Changing your diet and getting regular exercise will always be the best way to get healthy, but these tricks can help too, and won’t take much time or effort.

Most people make many little mistakes throughout the day that can add up to form really unhealthy habits. What are some simple ways to correct these problems?

* Lack of exposure to a varied temperature, whole populations may be prone to develop diseases like obesity,” researchers at Maastricht University Medical Center in The Netherlands wrote in a study published in Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism earlier this year.

The researchers suggested that regular exposure to mild cold could be a simple way to help people lose weight.

*  You should be drinking lots of water. But the best way to do this and lose weight is to replace other drinks with water.

This cheap and effective trick will eliminate sugary and high calorie drinks and replace them with a healthier alternative, according to a study presented at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.

“People should drink more water and less sugary, high calorie drinks. It’s a simple way to facilitate weight management,” Brenda Davy, Ph.D., senior author on the study said in a press release. “We found that over the course of 12 weeks, dieters who drank water before meals, three times per day, lost about 5 pounds more than dieters who did not increase their water intake.”

*  People who were given pedometers were more likely to participate in physical activity than those who did not, according to research from The International Association of Applied Psychology.

These devices make it easier to track how much exercise you’re getting and how many more steps you should be taking. Reaching your goals can be made with small adjustments throughout your day, something a pedometer will highlight — instantly.

 *  Using a standing desk for three hours a day will help you burn an extra 144 calories per day, according to a study from the University of Chester in the United Kingdom.

“This is the perfect way for any office-bound worker to achieve the typical New Year’s resolution of wanting to lose weight without changing anything else — how easy is that?” said Dr. John Buckley, Reader of Applied Exercise Science in Health and lead Lecturer for the University’s MSc in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation, in a press release.

* One major cause of the obesity epidemic in America is an inability to control portion sizes. But this easy life hack can help you lose weight without even realizing it.

To make sure your portions are in control, use smaller plates, bowls or glasses. Research shows that people perceive the amount of food they’re eating differently based on the plate size they use.

One cup of food on a small plate looks like more than the same amount of food on a large plate, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

* In addition to changing the size of the plate you eat off of, consider switching the color of the plate as well.

Yes, even the color can affect how much food you’re eating, and either encourage or discourage overeating.

A Cornell University study found that eating food off a plate of contrasting color would help people reduce the amount they are eating. The study called this mind-over-matter practice “critical” for some people’s portion control.

* Here’s one to try right away: Slow down!

 No, don’t slow down your exercise — slow down your eating. When you stuff your face full of food in mere moments, you’re not giving your body a chance to feel full until all the food is gone.

Similar to eating off of smaller plates, slowing down your pace will help you feel full without overeating. Eating too quickly leaves you full of more food than necessary.

Recently, researchers found that eating slowly led to increased fullness ratings in both normal-weight and overweight/obese participants, according to a study from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

 * It’s easy to get in the habit of paying for everything with a debit or credit card, just like it’s easy to get in the habit of eating and ordering too much food.

Paying with cash will serve as a psychological trick to keep your wallet full and your stomach just full enough.

People who pay with cards spent far more at Fast Food Restaurants ($4.50 compared to $7.00) than those who paid with cash, according to data from NerdWallet.

Similarly, people who paid with cash at grocery stores made smarter food choices, partially because they didn’t impulse buy junk food, according to a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research.

What is the Meaning? / C. S. Lewis / Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking / Fall Break This Week

spectacular-tree-b

In the midnight quiet
of a railway station,
a little boy
sits quietly,
almost all alone,
waiting on
the Rock Island Line,
with just his precious
Mother’s voice
to soften the hard edges
of the hardwood bench,
the crisp night air,
the reflecting, echoing walls,
Life.

And I discover
with the Love
of a Mother,
nothing else
in Life
truly matters.

Marie 5

Marie Anderson

And her precious Life
echoes back:

“If I never
would have lived,
I could not
die.
Death
is proof of
Life.
And Life,
my Son,
is proof of Love.”

dark-cloud-and-sun-b

       Death is proof of Life.

“When I am down
and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come
and my Heart burdened be;

Then, I am still
and wait here in the silence,

Until you come
and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up,
so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up,
to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong,
when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up
To more than I can be.”

        What is the meaning?

My Dear Friends,

Life is bittersweet
and can be filled
with despair.

Upon a razor’s edge
are we cast
onto the stage
of a Magnificent Day,
that can quickly become
a long night
to stay.

As our minds reflect
upon Human misery,
the mirror of our awareness
shows the World can be
a terrible place.
The History
of the Human race
depicts something far less
than Humanity.

And the fear of death,
not knowing where we go,
or what takes place
after we tell
the brief story of our Life,
can become worse
than death itself.

very-pink-rose-b

                  Be at Peace.

What is the meaning
of the songs our Lives sing,
the sad and Joyous lyrics
that surround and abound?
Did anyone hear them?
Where did they go?
Into the vast Void,
the unknown and empty space
all around
us?

We become very reflective
of life wandering,
wondering.

Then,
by the Grace of God,
one day we discover
that what lies within
becomes the only
journey we ever
really make.

Beyond,
is far beyond
what we can ever
contemplate.

            What is Existence?

My Friends,
Nothingness
simply cannot exist!

This metaphysical concept
about the structure and nature of Reality,
points to a fundamental question:

What is Existence?

Greek philosophers long ago addressed this question.
They observed that nothingness (non-existence)
is self-contradictory.
There must be something in reality
that necessarily exists.
Everything in existence cannot just be
or cease to be.
There was never a time in the past
in which there was nothing in existence at all.
Something cannot come from nothing.
There must be something that always existed.

“And the LORD God
formed man
of the dust of the ground.”
– Genesis 2:7

This fundamental Philosophical question
continues to be explored
and is known as Ontology
(the study of Reality or Being).

tri-colored

         All of Nature is good.

God
perfectly answers
this ontological prerogative.
He provides the Source of Being
necessary to existence.

The Laws of Thermodynamics
are simple and straight forward:
matter cannot be created or destroyed
There is a necessary structure
to the Universe.
Some aspect of it
is necessary to existence
itself.

Augustine explained
the Idea of God,
of Being.
The result is a Powerful
and truly Beautiful Conception of Reality.
Understanding his treatise,
alternatively titled,
“Faith, Hope, and Love”,
can provide insight and comfort
for our overly burdened, doubtful
and weary minds.

trees-bending

Something cannot come from nothing.

“All of nature, therefore, is good,
since the Creator of all nature
is Supremely Good.
But nature
is not supremely and immutably good

as is the Creator of it.
Thus the good in created things
can be diminished and augmented.”
– from the Enchiridion by Augustine

augustine

LIKE A COLOSSUS BESTRIDING TWO WORLDS,
Augustine stands as the last Patristic

and the first medieval Father of Western Christianity.
He gathered together and conserved all the

main motifs of Latin Christianity
from Tertullian to Ambrose;
he appropriated the heritage of

Nicene orthodoxy;
he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon
– and he drew all this into an

unsystematic synthesis
which is still our best mirror
of the Heart and mind of the Christian
community in the Roman Empire.

His essentially conservative genius
recast the Patristic tradition
into the new pattern by which European Christianity
would be largely shaped and who,

wrought out the first comprehensive
“Philosophy of History.”

We become very reflective.

 There is no such thing as
nothingness.
Everything is something.
Nothing is nothing.
Man lives more by affirmation
than by bread.
Victor Hugo
.

One day,
we discover
in a singular precious moment,
meaning.
We find the essence
of our Being
in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
all the Love
we have known,
all the caring
we have shown,
all our Hopes,
all our Dreams.

We see the whole Universe
in a teardrop
of Joy,
from one who Loves us,
more than Life,
more than the moment.

two-geese-b

The essence of our Being.

When it all goes wrong,
our lives
seek shelter.
And within the Loving Heart
of another,
the storms that rage
all around
cannot be heard,
can never even be felt,
beyond the Loving arms
of someone’s embrace.

“When blackness was a virtue, bobdylan-b
the road was full of mud.

I came in from the wilderness
a creature void of form

“Come in,” she said,
“I’ll give you
shelter from the storm.”

– Bob Dylan

C.S. Lewis left his childhood Christian faith
to spend years as a determined atheist.
After finally admitting God existed,
Lewis gave in and knelt in prayer
to become what he described later as
“the most dejected and reluctant convert
in all England.”

Lewis’s long journey away from, and back to,
Faith
began with his mother’s death from cancer
when he was a boy.
Disillusioned that God had not healed his mother,
Lewis set out on a path toward
full-bodied rationalism and atheism.

The road back to Faith
was cluttered with obstacles
Lewis once thought impossible to overcome.
His conversion to a robust Christianity
required years of intellectual struggle
and came only after being convinced
that faith was reasonable.

The journey of C.S. Lewis,
perhaps the greatest defender of the faith
of the twentieth century,
provides valuable lessons for Christians today
in sharing the Gospel
with an unbelieving generation.

Lewis spoke and wrote often of
Joy,”
a deep longing of the human heart
this world cannot satisfy,
and presented it as
evidence for God.

“Joy”
was a recurring experience for Lewis
as a child and adolescent
and came to him through
nature,
literature
and music.

C. S. Lewis made a case for God
by arguing that every natural, innate desire
corresponds to some real object
that can fulfill that desire.
Since humans desire something
this world cannot satisfy,
something exists outside this earthly world
that can satisfy –
God.

Lewis addressed this basic human desire
allegorically in The Pilgrim’s Regress,
autobiographically in Surprised by Joy,
reasonably in Mere Christianity,
and in sermon in The Weight of Glory.

“If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation
is that I was made for another world.
(Mere Christianity, 120)

“Christians must present the Faith
as fulfilling our deepest desires.
We too often present Christianity
as merely a Philosophical system,
or the conclusion to a string of inferences
made based upon Scripture,
but the Salvation promised us in Scripture
applies to the whole person.”
– C. S. Lewis

I cannot recommend anyone
more highly

to provide shelter

In the inner Core
of our Souls,
we find Faith.

You cannot doubt
you exist,
because you exist
to doubt.

Do not doubt
that God Loves you.
He Loves you
enough to liberate your mind
to doubt.
He Loves you enough
to let your precious Heart
show you the way
to His Heart.

Be at Peace
My Friend.
God is more real
than you are.

And so is
His Love.

Goodnight.

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING
from Curezone.org
read more

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

                 BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

                            Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

                   Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.


MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA. More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges.

                    Infinitely Loving Brushstrokes

Joni Mitchell
expresses in beautiful song:

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know life at all.”

Is it a delusion to believe
The images in our minds
Are the real world?
Is it unlike
Our experience of it?

The concept that reality is
Only in the mind,
Is found time after time after time
In the study of Philosophy,
And the Sciences remind.

Physicist
Sir Arthur Eddington notable said,
“Matter is mostly ghostly empty space.”
To be more precise,
it is 99.9999999% empty space.

My friends,
We faint and flickering
Shadows and shades
Are almost non-existent.
Matter, of which we are made,
Is coming into and out of existence
Billions of times each second.

Your reality, which includes you,
Is blinking constantly on and off at all times.
Quantum physics has left scientists
All over the world

Baffled,
Especially with the discovery
That our physical material reality,

Isn’t really physical at all. 

Our human brain is designed
By natural experience (in order to survive),
To sense the “on” frequency.
Just as quickly, it blinks “off,”
And everything, including you, disappears.
However, your brain registers and connects only
The “on” segments,
And thus you have the sense

Or feeling of your reality being solid.
What quantum mechanics reveals
Is that there is NO true “physicality” in the universe.

“We don’t know what matter is

Christian de Quincy,
The Paradox of Consciousness

We have discovered in quantum physics
Even subatomic particles
Are far, far from solid.
They are nothing like matter
As we think we know it.
These particles, of which we are made,
Can never be precisely measured.
And they are everywhere,
Everywhere,
In the same moment,
Until observed.

Religion incorporates transcendent, immanent
Omnipresence.
The Divine is everywhere.
The property of being present everywhere
Defines a universal and fundamental substance,
Which is the source of all existence.

Of human philosophy.

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are merging,
Becoming one.
Not as antithetically opposed
As we may believe.
Our discoveries suggests
A far, far more enlightening meaning
To this marriage.

Not just academic,
Not just philosophical,
But personal, practical, meaningful.
And as we think upon these things,
As best we can,
We become Blessed to realize:

“Those who dwell in the beauty
And the mystery of life
Are never lonely.”

BeautifulSky

The Earth is not at the center of the Universe, but WE are.

In our human affairs
We live our lives
As if the material world
Is the fundamental reality.
And in this consciousness
Lay the root of our discontent,
Our misery,
Our unquenchable thirst.

My friends,
We are losing our humanity,
Not knowing
We are far, far more
Than human.

The human spirit
Is the very essence of life

In a human being.
And knowledge of this can amplify
The joy of living,
And bring about Spiritual freedom.

You are a spiritual being having a human experience.

Your infinite capacity
To create, to love, to dream, to forgive
And to be aware that you are far, far more
Than you can ever imagine,
Ultimately defines what it means to be human.
You are the most beautiful and miraculous Creation
In the Universe.
And you are Eternal.

What is missing,
Disappearing from life,
Is the most exciting, wonderful, exhilarating
Discovery of all:
When we Love someone,
And finally come to know
We are deeply Loved,
God enters our hearts,
And what is dreamed
Becomes forever real.

Look into the mirror Of time.

Look into the mirror

To a moment when
You were not alone,
When your heart

With another,
When together you were one,
Just one.

When you walked
Hand in hand,
You and your friend,
And time
Moved not within,
And you,
Not the world,
Would spin.

Call out their name,
Forgive the past with them.
Your memory is more
Than a mirror,
It is you.

Deep within the recesses of a cloud formation may lie the abstract design that is a key to unlocking the chaotic behavior of cancer. Is the answer blowing in the wind?

Each moment
Is Eternal,
Time standing still.
It is you, breathless waiting
In morning sun,
Always near to each moment
You were in Love.

Love can never be measured
By the hours in a day.
Filtered like the evening sun
Passing through the falling leaves,
The precious flow of our tears
Measures all the joy,
Cascading down to
The Soil of our Soul,
To renew our Hope,
Restore our Faith,
Much like the rain.

The Love we seek
Is reflect in Time.
Open your eyes
To the illusion
Of Life in living.
Close them again
And Love in remembering.

The Fort Worth Stock Show was fun.

Looking back we forward see.
God’s Love is now,
And forever to be,

The Ever Ebbing Tide
Of a deepening, endless sea.

In each moment
The Love of God
Will always be,
Here and now,
The Mirror
Of each moment to be.
His Love is Love
Infinity.

He wants you alive
With Love again,
And in Love with Life.

My friend, Travis, age eleven, is deeply concerned for others.
He is committed to finding a cure for cancer.

“How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows

That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

The answer is blowing in the wind.”

Abstract Art and Illogical Thought
vs. the Chaos of Cancer
by Travis Carter Allen
And William C. Anderson

Deep within the recesses of a Modern Art Museum, or art disguised as graffiti or some cloud formation or an outrageously disjointed thought may lie the abstract design, pattern or startling idea that is a key to insert into the lock of our antiquated, linear thinking. And we wait to hear the magical click which will open to find a universal cure for cancer.

Now I'm scared!

Now I’m scared!

We are waging war with cancer in conventional ways and directly. But we combat a life competitive force with an arsenal of disadvantages. We are facing an opponent that functions in an incomprehensible manner, because its structure and its life is chaotic. And it is becoming more and more obvious that we cannot win this battle within the confinements and limitations of the structured thought processes we have become habituated to. Such linearized thinking has not produced desired results. We are loosing the war while winning few battles on highly selective fronts. What is needed is a general, “theory of everything”, relative to combating the highly chaotic behavior of other predatory living organisms. read more

Perhaps, it behooves us to stop thinking so much, since our thought processes are prejudiced by artificial, man made environmental structures (not found in nature) such as straight lines and ninety degree angles. Perhaps we should intuit, with our hearts and other-worldly wisdom (relating to an imaginary or spiritual world) about something that is so chaotic in its behavior that it is incomprehensible to the thinking human organism, which functions within such limited and habitual structural constraints. Our predisposition to the linearity of environmentally induced per-programed mental processing has eluded us from thoughtful non-linearized reflection and discourse. And this has resulted in little real progress. It has become obvious that we cannot win this battle against cancer in this way.

040Friends, if we are going to act with any significant measurable success we must stop thinking as logical beings and think illogically (chaotically) or stop thinking with our intermediate repository of memory engrams (the brain) and engage more long term memory storage, using intuition and other dimensions of memory, such as the heart. The heart always remembers what has been emoted as love and fear and harm, much longer and with more impact-fulness than is possible with the human brain. Thank God we sometimes forget. But the human heart remembers.

Perhaps we should utilize the abundance of neglected historical records, including those handed down verbally through generations of Spiritually guided indigenous people, native citizens, in which we find advantages gained through the elements of simple faith, subjectivity and creativity. These records are replete with example and truly abundant but are becoming endangered. They include elements of the rather haphazard manipulation (dependent upon or characterized by mere chance) of factors related to the relativity of reality and the mis-utilization of time factors (creating advantages of time, eliminating obsolete territorial primacy, deployment of reinforcement resources (you can call them troops), chaotic cellular research, non-linear thought processes and so forth.

The Stock Show was very informative.

The Stock Show was very informative.

We should also, however, plan for the intelligent (as best as we can define intelligence) and well established elements of retreat (recognizing where we have been in fruitless endeavor), regrouping (placing hitherto unknown and unrelated social factions together), creative counter measures, etc.

We are dealing with a life-force apparently MORE intelligent, when it comes to fundamental survival, than we are and much more willing to sacrifice, do whatever is necessary, in order to continue existence.

This chaotic life force, cancer, is also a primary and elemental force in evolution, and therefore, must be respected and not totally eliminated. A good example of non-linear, non-logical and irrational thought provided to combat the devastating disease(s) of cancer lies in research using a modified HIV virus – yes, the virus that causes AIDS – to fight cancer. In one case a little girl named Emma is now in remission from leukemia as a result of the so-far successful treatment. Completely eliminating life threatening entities removes future potential and vital tools in our arsenal to combat other disorders and disease. read more

We are also dealing with a fundamental deficiency of appreciation for illogicality. It is our considered opinion that we need to recruit and employ unusual savants and similar resources, individuals with remarkable photographic memory characteristics, to be “at elbow” in assisting others involved in creative discourse such as “brainstorming” forbidding judgmental and negative elements. Their particular gifts, which are beyond our comprehension, can be employed by priming them with preparatory pure data/information streams coupled with relevant and, in particular, non-relevant, seemingly irrelevant and unrelated factoids and rivulets of thought. These could be streamed in illogical and irrational methods, as allied discordant rationals and highly subjective and unrelated data streams set to collide with unexpected results. At this point, large capacity high speed computers be employed to harvest, combine or join in unusual patterns and analyze particles of result (unexpected conclusions).

We enjoyed many educational exhibits.

These seemingly irrelevant bits of information/data could also then be subjectively (without expected end results) and abstractly analyzed and assessed by intuitive savants, and others known for irrational/illogical thinking, to harvest conclusions that have, thus far, eluded researchers in the field.

We utilize instruments such as the Hadron Collider to stream particles toward each other to harvest the unexpected and unknown by-products. Ideas could be subjected to similar manipulation. Somehow, courageously colliding ideas may generate small, but significant, by-products.

What if we took the same financial resources expended on this large collider to finance placing the most outrageous, obnoxious, irreverent and illogical thinking human beings together, so could have their ideas collide and coalesce. We could harvest the by-products to our advantage, if we can recognize possible positive results with our linearly oriented minds.

Perhaps, the laws of sub-atomic particle physics, which are totally different than those operating above that level, can open up new avenues to wander aimlessly down and without the linear destruction that accompanies normal thought processes.

We were so enamored and captivated with what happened in this bird bath, that numerous photographs were taken.

Groundbreaking new research on the cancer-fighting potential of vitamin C has made the pages of the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine. A team of researchers from the University of Kansas reportedly tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects and found that it effectively eradicates cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

Note the unusual geometry and even spacing between the clusters of bubbles. Nature is full of fascinating wonder. And the most fascinating is YOU.

Building upon research pioneered by the late Linus Pauling, from Oregon State University who today is recognized as the world’s foremost proponent of therapeutic vitamin C, the new research involved injecting high doses of vitamin C into human ovarian cells. The tests were conducted in vitro in a lab, as well as directly in both mice and a group of 22 human subjects.

bubbles in bird bath

EACH bubble consisted of many other tiny bubbles! Perhaps YOU can explain this! Let us hear from you.

According to BBC News, the tests showed favorable results in all three models, as vitamin C effectively targeted the ovarian cancer cells while avoiding healthy cells. The benefits of high-dose vitamin C were also observed in conjunction with conventional chemotherapy treatments, which destroy all cells, both healthy and malignant, eventually leading to patient death.

“Patients are looking for safe and low-cost choices in their management of cancer,” stated Dr. Jeanne Drisko, a co-author of the study, to BBC News concerning the findings. “Intravenous vitamin C has that potential based on our basic science research and early clinical data.”

Researchers admit more human trials on intravenous vitamin C unlikely because drug companies cannot patent vitamins.

The next step for this type of research would typically involve applying these same parameters in a large-scale clinical human trial to see if they can be replicated and confirmed. While this new study is admittedly convincing on its own, the hurdles to gaining widespread acceptance of its findings include replicating them across a much larger human sample size.

But this may never actually take place. And the reason, says the research team, is that such trials require major funding that typically comes from pharmaceutical companies interested in developing a patented drug. Drug companies, in other words, are hardly interesting in promoting the medicinal benefits of natural substances like vitamin C, which stands to decimate the multibillion-dollar conventional cancer industry if word gets out about its benefits. [Now there is a truly sad commentary on our humanity.] By the way, studies also show inadequate vitamin C levels Boost the risk of the most deadly type of stroke by nearly fifty percent (50%).

“Because vitamin C has no patent potential, its development will not be supported by pharmaceutical companies,” says Qi Chen, lead author of the new study. “We believe that the time has arrived for research agencies to vigorously support thoughtful and meticulous clinical trials with intravenous vitamin C.”

Perhaps, my friends, Bob Dylan expresses it best:

“How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

Yes, ‘n’ how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.” 

The conventional medical industry’s response to these and similar findings over the years has been nothing short of derisive, which is to be expected. Having to rationalize decades of ushering cancer patients through the gauntlet of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery — with dismal results — while ignoring natural cancer-fighting alternatives like vitamin C is a hard pill to swallow for this powerful, high-profit industry, which would rather everyone ignore such findings than think critically about them.

“[A]scorbate is processed by the body in different ways when administered orally versus intravenously,” writes Heidi Ledford for Nature about this commonly misunderstood variance. The medical-industrial complex, it turns out, intentionally corrupts the conversation on vitamin C by convoluting the distinct effects of these very different delivery routes.

“Oral doses [of vitamin C] act as antioxidants, protecting cells from damage caused by reactive compounds that contain oxygen. But vitamin C given intravenously can have the opposite effect by promoting the formation of one of those compounds: hydrogen peroxide. Cancer cells are particularly susceptible to damage by such reactive oxygen-containing compounds.”
