Is Another (Oolong) Tea Party Brewing?

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

As I have said in the past, increased complexity equals collapse.  There are just some things the mind has trouble grasping.  Monetary engineers have built a house of cards that can only remain standing by the Fed’s willingness to provide the glue: taxpayer dollars.  The excuse of “greater good” always demands the question: Who does the action benefit?

In Scripture, “666″ is first used in describing gold given to Solomon whereas its last use describes “the beast” in Revelations.

1Ki 10:14  Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,

Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six

Goldman Sachs’ name keeps coming up as being complicit in the ‘Cataclysmic Financial Crisis’ of 2008-2009 where taxpayer money is used to bail out the current financial system at the same time a multitude of players profit from those actions.  This must be the “Greater Good” group.  See: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601109&sid=a7T5HaOgYHpE

When the apathetic and lethargic taxpayer finally wakes from his slumber, we may see a whole new set of faces in power.  I expect volatility in commodities, especially gold and silver, as the Fed attempts to implement its strategy to exit the quantitative easing in the markets.  If they fail to execute a perfect exit, the markets could seize up again and it could really get ugly out there when the glue is removed.  The Chinese are expecting the Fed to protect the value of the dollar and their trillion dollar plus investment and the market is expecting the Fed to devalue the dollar to protect the Domestic Liabilities economic structure including the bond market.  This appears to be a no-win situation.

Expected Shift in Healthcare: Part 7 (The Paradigm Exit)

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

A paradigm is a system of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality.  A paradigm tends to only see a subset of reality without consideration of the external factors that may impact the factors seen within the paradigm.  For instance, ancient scientists thought the world was flat, the center of the universe, and the sun revolved around the earth.  The stars were observed to move across the sky in a zigzag pattern.  All was well.

Nicolaus Copernicus (19 February 1473 – 24 May 1543) was the first astronomer to formulate a comprehensive heliocentric cosmology, which displaced the Earth from the center of the universe.  With improved technology such as the telescope, our view (or paradigm) has been greatly expanded.  The microscope did for biology what the telescope did for astronomy.  We once thought the atom was the smallest particle because technology was limited in its ability to see anything smaller.  Our comprehension expands as our ability to measure improves.

Below is a list of sub-atomic particles:

  • 1895 – X-rays produced by Wilhelm Röntgen (later identified as photons)
  • 1897 – Electron discovered by J. J. Thomson
  • 1899 – Alpha particle discovered by Ernest Rutherford in uranium radiation
  • 1900 – Gamma ray (high-energy photon) discovered by Paul Villard in uranium decay.
  • 1911 – Atomic nucleus identified by Ernest Rutherford, based on scattering observed by Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden.
  • 1919 – Proton discovered by Ernest Rutherford
  • 1932 – Neutron discovered by James Chadwick (predicted by Rutherford in 1920)
  • 1932 – Positron, the first antiparticle, discovered by Carl D. Anderson (proposed by Paul Dirac in 1927)
  • 1937 – Muon discovered by Seth Neddermeyer, Carl Anderson, J.C. Street, and E.C. Stevenson, using cloud chamber measurements of cosmic rays. (It was mistaken for the pion until 1947.)
  • 1947 – Pion discovered by Cecil Powell (predicted by Hideki Yukawa in 1935])
  • 1947 – Kaon, the first strange particle, discovered by G.D. Rochester and C.C. Butler
  • 1955 – Antiproton discovered by Owen Chamberlain, Emilio Segrè, Clyde Wiegand, and Thomas Ypsilantis
  • 1956 – Neutrino detected by Frederick Reines and Clyde Cowan (proposed by Wolfgang Pauli in 1931 to explain the apparent violation of energy conservation in beta decay)
  • 1962 – Muon neutrino shown to be distinct from electron neutrino by group headed by Leon Lederman
  • 1969 – Partons (internal constituents of hadrons) observed in deep inelastic scattering experiments between protons and electrons at SLAC; this was eventually associated with the quark model (predicted by Murray Gell-Mann and George Zweig in 1963) and thus constitutes the discovery of the up quark, down quark, and strange quark.
  • 1974 – J/ψ particle discovered by groups headed by Burton Richter and Samuel Ting, demonstrating the existence of the charm quark (proposed by Bjorken and Glashow in 1964)
  • 1975 – Tau lepton discovered by group headed by Martin Perl
  • 1977 – Upsilon particle discovered at Fermilab, demonstrating the existence of the bottom quark (proposed by Kobayashi and Maskawa in 1973)
  • 1979 – Gluon observed indirectly in three jet events at DESY
  • 1983 – W and Z bosons discovered by Carlo Rubbia, Simon van der Meer, and the CERN UA-1 collaboration (predicted in detail by Sheldon Glashow, Abdus Salam, and Steven Weinberg)
  • 1995 – Top quark discovered at Fermilab
  • 2000 – Tau neutrino first observed directly at Fermilab

Aren’t we glad that x-rays were discovered 114 years ago!  Millions of people have been helped by the fact that a physician could look inside the body without cutting it open.  Notice that some particles were theorized before their actual discovery.  As our technology improves and our paradigms expand to encompass the full reality, I believe we will be given the revelation of the “GOD” particle where a particle can turn into a wave form and a wave form can become a particle.  We have empirical evidence that the body responds to the wave form similar to the way it responds to the actual chemical but without the side effects.

Just as the paradigm has shifted and expanded in physics, it will happen in healthcare.  The challenge will be to keep the moneychangers out of the equation since they would figure out how to package the revelation for profit and at the expense of the rest of us.

Expected Shift in Healthcare: Part 6 (Energy Medicine)

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

The greatest issue with pharma-based medicine is the adverse impact of the absorbed chemical on the various systems in the body.  What if you could transfer a wave form to nullify the interference detected in a specific organ?  Every chemical, bacteria, virus, and other biological substances have a unique imprint or wave form.  Each of these has a unique atomic structure and give off an electromagnetic wave form that can be measured.  Along the body’s electrical pathways are specific points called “meridians”.  Acupuncturists have successfully interrupted the electron flow at these meridian points with positive results.  Their metal needles block the electron flow and the affected system responds with some form of relief.  Is the result any different from a pharmaceutical based “beta blocker”?  Yes, the pharma-based solution introduces a toxin whereas the needle only affects the specific dermal site.  The recent vaccine mandate in the U.S. is uncovering notable risks in being vaccinated.  See: http://thebovine.wordpress.com/2009/10/22/gary-null-talks-vaccines-at-ny-state-hearings/

I’m going to get a little technical but bear with me.  It is important to gain some overall understanding in order to grasp the importance of energy medicine.

Let’s look at the fundamentals of energy measurement.  Electrical energy can be measured and analyzed by using an oscilloscope.  An oscilloscope (abbreviated sometimes as scope or O-scope) is a type of electronic test instrument that allows signal voltages to be viewed, usually as a two-dimensional graph of one or more electrical potential differences (vertical axis) plotted as a function of time or of some other voltage (horizontal axis).  Below are some fundamental wave forms:

 

The following animation provides a three dimensional view of electrons (sine wave) moving down a biological pathway:

 

Here are some scope pictures:

Simple Wave                Looks like we have some “noise”

 

Now let’s “scope” a substance used by athletes for treating bruises and sprains- Arnica.

Arnica is currently used in liniment and ointment preparations used for strains, sprains, and bruises. Commercial arnica preparations are frequently used by professional athletes.

The following are three representations of Arnica:

clip_image002

 

The first wave form is a sample of Arnica.

The second wave form is a computer representation of of Arnica stored in a digital form.

The third wave form is a “virtual” representation of Arnica that can be stored in a water/alcohol solution by “imprinting” the wave form.

Can the body use a wave form of Arnica rather than the actual substance to produce a therapeutic effect?   YES.

If we can administer “wave forms” to the affected area of the body without the side effects of a chemical delivery system, then our body can focus on healing the affected area rather than having the immune system and liver focusing on the toxic side effects of the pharma-based delivery.

PBS aired a documentary that implicates the players who have had direct impact on the economic crisis at hand.  This documentary provides a historical perspective of how derivatives grew into the current “out of control” condition.  This 55 minute video provides critical understanding about the current condition of the U.S. based financial markets.

Expected Shift in Healthcare: Part 5 (Alternative Medicine: No Longer Option 2)

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

As the current system of healthcare continues to price itself out of most people’s budgets AND with the continued health information increasing on the Internet, there will be a shift away from the pharma-based healthcare to the “organic” based healthcare.  Hospitals will still be needed to 1) handle patients who resist the change and 2) handle acute cases such as accidents.

In Switzerland, the pharmacies are much different than those in the U.S.  When you enter, the associate interrogates you to determine your purpose for entering the store.  Based on your symptoms, the associate will direct you to a homeopathic remedy first.  Only by your insistence with the associate assist you in obtaining a pharma-based remedy.  This is true for much of the European mainland.

In China and other Far Eastern countries, acupuncture and other “energy-based” therapies are accepted and successful in treating various illnesses and diseases.  The economies require an effective but inexpensive means of treating the population.  After all, who can afford $500 per month medical premiums in lesser developed economies where the average worker may only make an equivalent $200 per month?

It would appear that the Western economies have created the problem and in response, created an expensive solution to the problem.   Hmmm, sounds lie a political subtlety.  If growth in complexity is left unchecked, it will collapse under its own weight.

It’s time for a couple of definitions:

Medicine is the art and science of healing. It encompasses a range of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies health science, biomedical research, and medical technology to diagnose and treat injury and disease, typically through medication, surgery, or some other form of therapy. The word medicine is derived from the Latin ars medicina, meaning the art of healing.

Orthodox: Adhering to whatever is traditional, customary or generally accepted

Society is influenced by the use of words.  For example, “Orthodox Medicine” sounds like the norm whereas “Alternative Medicine” sounds like a less than desirable, sub-par methodology thus placing a stigma on those who practice it.  In the early 1900′s pharma-based medicine was the “Alternative Medicine”.

The human body contains an electrical grid that passes information from one system to another.  The heart is a great example:

The natural pacemaker of the heart is called the sinoatrial node (SA node). It is located in the right atrium. The heart also contains specialized fibers that conduct the electrical impulse from the pacemaker (SA node) to the rest of the heart (see Figure 4).

The heart contains specialized fibers that conduct the electrical impulse from the pacemaker.
Figure 4

The electrical impulse leaves the SA node (1) and travels to the right and left atria, causing them to contract together. This takes .04 seconds. There is now a natural delay to allow the atria to contract and the ventricles to fill up with blood. The electrical impulse has now traveled to the atrioventricular node (AV node) (2). The electrical impulse now goes to the Bundle of His (3), then it divides into the right and left bundle branches (4) where it rapidly spreads using Purkinje fibers (5) to the muscles of the right and left ventricle, causing them to contract at the same time.

Your nervous system sends electrical impulses to your brain to provide the status of your various organs and extremities.  Your various organs and systems have electrical pathways or channels that pass by or to the skin. 

The cell is a complicated entity in which thousands of activities take place and the electrical potential of the cell is what we want to focus on.  The body of a cell is enclosed by a membrane, and in a nerve cell the electrical potential is minus ninety millivolts, relative to the outside of the cell.  The reason there is a negative potential is because of a disproportionate amount of substances inside the cell relative to outside the cell—particularly sodium and potassium. The very thin membrane can sustain an electrical tension better than most insulators. The insulation strength is high.  There are billions of cells in the brain—each with an electrical potential.  In nerve cells the speed of impulse transmission varies from one hundred meters a second to three meters a second. All the cells in the human body, although they do not have the same amount of electrical potential, work on the same principle.

What if we could use the electrical system of the body to analyze the “status” of the various organs and systems, similar to placing an analyzer on an automobile engine’s electrical system?  What if we could measure “interference” and identify it against a known table of chemicals, toxins, bacteria, allergens, cancers, viruses, etc?  We can! 

This field of “Energy Medicine” will be the next topic in this series.

PS.  If medicine means “art of healing”, have the “treaters” lost sight of their primary mandate?  Shouldn’t they consider any alternative that might further their mandate?

Christ and Authority

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Christ and Authority

We, who believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God, should understand that, by acting with the authority given by Him, we have authority to heal.

In Matthew 28:18, “Jesus said…all authority is given unto me in heaven and in earth”.

He gave this authority to His followers when He said in Mark 13:34 “the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house (his body), and gave authority to his servants”.

Allegorically, Mark was saying that Jesus, as the Son of man, was going to take a far journey into the spiritual realm after He left His earthly body by death. When He rose from the dead, He showed that he had overcome death and was alive in the spiritual realm. While He was in this far place He would give His servants authority to run His earthly household as He had done before He left on His journey.

In Ex 15:26 Moses said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians (representing the world); for I am Jehovah who heals you." Ani Jehovah rophecha Iאֲנִי יְהוָה רֹפְאֶֽךָ׃

Isa 12:2 states that Jehovah has become my Yeshua (salvation). This revelation equates Jehovah of the Old Testament with Yeshua or Joshua (Hebrew) and Iesus (Greek) and Jesus (English) in the New Testament.

In Acts 1:8 Jesus said “you shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost has come upon you”

Mark 16:15, 17, 18. “And he said unto them… signs shall follow them that believe… they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”.

Who, then, is qualified to heal? Ultimately, it is Christ as Jehovah Rophe, “I am Jehovah who heals you” Ex 15:26. If God can use Balaam’s Ass to prophesy, then He is capable of using any vehicle He wishes to heal. When God heals He does so to fulfill His purpose and plan for Creation.

In a corporate sense the question is "Who has the authority to minister healing in the Kingdom Age?” The answer is, to those who have been given the power and authority to do so. That is one of the reasons why it is important to preach the gospel, so that the source of healing can be known.

In Luke 9:1, 2 in the last public ministry of Jesus before His death “he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority (ἐξουσία exousia)… to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick”.

Initially, during the Pentecostal or Church Age, this power and authority was limited because Pentecost was a leavened feast. It contained the leaven of unrighteousness. Sin abounded.

The expectation is that, in the Tabernacles Age which is before us, healing will be commonplace. This is the age when those who have overcome sin in the world, will receive the fullness of their inheritance through Christ, a glorified body like Adam had before he sinned.

Under what conditions may healing take place? The answer is at the level of faith that has been given. Both the healer and the one healed must have faith that healing can be accomplished through Jehovah, that is, Jesus Christ.

Authority to heal is not given in all cases because illness is a chastening that God uses to bring about corrective, healing judgments in an individual

In conventional medicine much emphasis has been spent on physical and emotional healing. Very little attention has been spent on the role of spiritual healing. Many in the medical field such considerations are thought to be inappropriate. Because of this attitude healing has been incomplete.

Health of the spirit of man is required for the health of the physical state as well.

From a minister’s standpoint, healing power must be able to flow unimpeded. Therefore, those who have taken on the full character of Christ and have been sanctified by obedience to the Laws of God out of love as Sons, will be entrusted with the health of their Fathers household while He is away. This will become more evident as the Sons of God become known in the age that lies ahead

From our present experience, it seems that most health care givers are not authorized to heal. They are operating outside of their calling. They are just treating. This is the spirit of antichrist that dominates the healing arts today. There is a substitution of man’s spirit for the spirit of Christ.

By God’s grace this will change in the near future and we will, at last, experience complete healing.

Expected Shift in Healthcare: Part 4 (Infrastructure Resistance)

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

The next aspect of the expected shift is the resistance to change by the current infrastructure.  My health insurance company sent out a notice of premium increase as of November 1st.  So much for negative inflation.  When was the last time you received a notice that your premium was being reduced?  Remember ten years ago when hospitals were losing money yet were in massive building programs?

Below is a chart of the largest pharmaceutical companies:

CropperCapture[59]

 

Do you think these companies are going to tolerate a change in the healthcare paradigm?  With $400-500 Billion of revenue at stake among these companies, will they graciously agree that society should pursue another path toward healing and healthcare?  Hospital, physician, and medical support revenues would all suffer if healthcare moves toward a “healing” methodology versus the current symptom treating methods.  How did the men and women of the Old Testament times survive without their prescriptions?  Could those 70,000 man-made chemicals roaming around the earth have something to do with the current healthcare paradigm?  I wonder what it would be like to have a monthly premium of $100 again?

About 4 miles north of our house is the “American Cancer Society” facility.  If a cure for cancer is found and widely accepted, would we need them anymore?  It looks like they are not planning to close down anytime soon.

There are two viable ways for the shift in healthcare to occur:

1.  Our Heavenly Father brings an economic upheaval that forces the current system to fail and at the same time, HE brings forth a Kingdom based alternative.

2. New technologies and methods are developed and deployed in lesser developed countries that are not influenced by the western medical infrastructure.

A charitable organization who loves mankind and wants to improve global healthcare would most likely pursue #2 until #1 arrives.

Should the Christian focus on physical healing?

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Jesus had a healing ministry.  His ministry of healing was conducted prior to His Crucifixion.  In Matthew 10, He directs His disciples to heal the sick.  All of this was prior to the Day of Pentecost in Acts chapter 2.  This is a clear example of the importance of understanding the spiritual side of healing.  I would call this healing ministry the “top down” method.  If you deal with the spiritual side, the body will respond.

This is what I call a Healer:

Has Gold hit a new high?

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

The answer is: No, not in terms of inflation-adjusted U.S. Dollars.

image

The price would need to hit $2,190 to be a true new high.  I expect this to occur by December 21st, 2012 or earlier.  As the BRIC countries increase their per capita income, new demand to hold gold will cause the price to surge.  $5,000-$10,000 price range during the mania would not be unexpected.  Silver will enjoy the ride as well.  However, the central governments will attempt to reign in the price so one would expect a battle in the gold pits resulting in price volatility.  Do not borrow to buy gold.

Notice in 1971 when we went off the gold standard, monetary inflation became unrestrained.  With a $1.4 Trillion deficit, the decline in the value of the dollar is assured.  The Fed cannot raise interest rates to support the value of the dollar without putting the banks and the economy at risk.
