Ideas Are Like Boogers

 

Some stick. Some don’t.

There are big ones and small ones.

They often arise in spurts.

Some people are overrun by them and accomplish nothing. Others never seem to get one.

If you look for one too hard where there are none, you’ll bleed.

Sometimes they attack in the middle of the night.

You can appreciate a friend’s, but you can’t really share it.

Polite society avoids them.

Kids who have them get noticed.

Ignoring one won’t make it go away, no matter how hard you try.

Each one is unique.

If you launch it right, it can take on a life of its own.

Good ones can be shared – to the astonishment of all.

New ones aren’t necessarily better than old ones.  They’re just newer.

Old ones aren’t necessarily better than new ones.  They’re just older.

They come less often in summer.

It used to be a boy thing, but by now folks realize that girls get them too.

Not all are worth digesting.

Few are worth buying.

Timing is key.

Like it or not, your Mom’s and Dad’s aren’t that different from your own.

If you’re lucky, yours will outlive you.

You can put one in a book.

Even those worth disregarding are free and often harmless.

A trek through nature can inspire really big ones.

Big ones that won’t quite arrive are frustrating.

Alone, they cannot feed you.

They are common to people living in every corner of the Earth, with surprisingly little variation.

Imagine what would happen if a million people all used theirs in a coordinated movement.

They are shaped by you.

They can be used to feed plants.

When you have a big one, celebrate it.  Look at it closely from all angles.  Laugh at it.  Then decide what to do with it.

Just because a role model gave you one, doesn’t mean you have to keep it.

When is the last time you had one of epic proportion?  What did you do with it?

What will you do with your next good one?

 

How To Build a Time Machine

Wondering about your options for building a time machine? According to Dr. Ronald Mallett, you actually do have some:

Inspired by the book, “The Time Machine” by H.G. Wells as a boy, Dr. Mallett has spent years thinking about the issues involved. I’d be shocked beyond measure if a working time machine was available at the local gadget store within our lifetime, but this speech gives some food for thought.

A second book also inspired the speaker: “The Universe of Dr. Einstein.” This book allowed the young man to realize that according to Einstein, time has some flexibility.

How To Build a Time Machine, According to Sneezl

Building from the principle that objects at high speeds experience time at a slower rate, here is a guide to building your own time machine:

  1. Build a machine that goes unbelievably fast
  2. While going unbelievably fast, do not die
  3. Slow down
  4. Join the future

Of course, there are critical problems with this plan, but if you really want a time machine…

(kids: talk to your parents before trying anything…)

How To Build a Time Machine, Option 2

This time machine won’t be as dramatic as the previous suggestion, but here goes:

  1. No matter where you are, be as high off the ground as possible:
    • Sleeping? Choose the top bunk
    • Apartment shopping? Choose the top floor
    • Eating? Find a roof-top patio
    • Not sure where to live? Move to Nepal
  2. As the Earth rotates, you will constantly be moving slightly faster than everyone at ground level.
  3. You will be experiencing time a little slower than everyone else.

If all goes well, you’ll add a second or two to your lifetime :)

Why Are Humans So Brainy?

Scientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel is a neuroscientist at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences in Rio de Janeiro. In this TED talk, she explores human brains in search of answers to puzzling questions about humanity.

Here is her talk:

Suzana developed her own way to count the number of neurons within a brain. She calls it “brain soup.” It’s a simple and fast way to analyze and compare the brains of various species.

A few highlight facts:

  • a brain’s size and the number of neurons are often not related
  • the human brain has on average 86 billion neurons
  • 16 billion of these human neurons are in the cerebral cortex
  • no other species (rodent, primate, etc.) yet studied has so many neurons in its cerebral cortex

The connections between diet and brain potential are fascinating.

Fun stuff! I think I need a sandwich :)

He has personally funded efforts for bring silver’s benefits into Africa’s poorest communities with dramatic results including his published cure for malaria.

In this 2013 video, Dr. Pedersen speaks about some of his earlier silver publications (including A Fighting Chance) and how they connect with more recent silver developments:

“A Fighting Chance was a textbook on how to use it…

Now while those were really terrific and had absolutely medical benefits, I now want to talk to you about some of the newest research…

So, when you see articles that are written by me in the past, know that the latest research is documenting even a better and finer form of silver, and tomorrow, I hope we’ll even do more.”

Availability in eBook and in Print

A New Fighting Chance is available on Amazon in printed form and as an ebook.

The original A Fighting Chance is now out of print. Although copies can still be found through some older sellers, why not get the 2014 book with the benefits of six extra years of research?

Excerpt From The Book

Here is a portion of A New Fighting Chance from page 3 to 7.

Currently, silver water purification filters are used by organizations that include international airliners and NASA.  Increasing numbers of Americans use silver in their fabrics, appliances, and home water filters.  Electrical ionization units are being used in swimming pool water to help sanitize the water without the harsh effects of chlorine.  Silver is also found in many applications within our hospitals, from needles to bandages to disinfectants for newborn babies’ eyes.  (3) 
 
Burns and wound healing make up a multi-billion-dollar industry.  One of the foremost treatments is silver, which is used topically as a gel, liquid, spray, bandage, and antimicrobial to enhance wound healing.  Because silver destroys bacteria, viruses, and yeast it will help any wound or burn by preventing infection and stimulating stem cells (133).  Wounds heal faster and with less scarring when bacteria, viruses and yeast cannot contaminate the wound.  Burn victims report a reduction in pain when silver liquid or gel is applied to the wound.  Because silver can be applied in an open wound it can assist in disinfection and help stimulate the healing factors of the immune system.  This is true for vaginal infections and internal bleeding in the uterus or cervix as well.
 
New advances with silver continue to be made in the pursuit of maximum effectiveness and safety.  In just the past two or three years, brand new ways of structuring silver molecules into water have been developed that show significantly improved results when compared with earlier silver products.  This is an emerging field in terms of public familiarity.
 
Critical Differentiations–Structured Silver is New
 
This brings us to a critical point: structured silver is not the same as other silver products.  Even other products that contain silver and water are not the same as structured silver.
 
1000 years ago, people used primitive forms of silver and received mild antimicrobial benefits. 
 
100 years ago, people used primitive colloidal and ionic silver products and received good antimicrobial benefits, but also suffered side effects like Argyria.  Argyria is not life-threatening and is rare, but it is an undesirable discoloration of the skin towards a bluish-grey.  Argyria can occur with concentrated silvers (very high ppm, such as 50,000 ppm) and impure silver compounds (eg.  silver salts) that precipitate within the body.  Argyria cannot happen with new structured silvers, when taken as suggested.
 
10 years ago, people used more advanced silver solutions and gels and received excellent antimicrobial benefits and vastly improved safety standards.
 
Today, people have access to structured silver products that even outperform last decade’s products.  The new silvers are safer and more effective.  When compared with last decade’s top products at top U.S.  laboratories and in clinical usage, today’s structured silver shows significantly improved performance against pathogens and reduced healing times as high as 40% faster.
 
In short, our ability to access silver’s benefits has moved from primitive to good over the centuries, with new levels of excellence available now that are even better than last decade’s best.  Just as computers have developed at a rapid pace, so have silvers.  A computer from 25 or 10 years ago was a good tool at the time, but how many people choose an old computer when faced with a design, communication, programming, or entertainment need?  10 years old may be good, but it is no longer the best.  As it is with computers, cameras, and smartphones, so it is with silvers.
 
When choosing your silver products, be mindful of what you seek.  You might not be able to see the differences with the naked eye, but they are real and can impact your health. 
 
If you were five or six nanometers tall, the differences between silver products would be as obvious as the differences between a horse and a cow.  Yet, since you are likely closer to five or six feet tall, the differences between a pH-balanced (alkaline) structured silver and other substances are invisible without closer inspection.
 
In short, you do not need to use your grandma’s silver.  Just as horses and cows are similar yet critically different, old-fashioned silver products and pH-balanced structured silver are similar but critically different from one another.
 
With clarity on this point, a new health vector emerges.  Without clarity, today’s new silver products are incorrectly called ”snake oil” or worse due to confusion with older technologies. 
 
Unfortunately, many of today’s medical experts remain ignorant of the interrelationship between physics, energy, healing, and silver.  When questioned about silver, many experts still respond in terms of biochemistry, which is a decades-old approach suitable for decades-old silvers that worked through biochemistry.  However, the biochemical paradigm is insufficient for understanding and applying today’s silvers, which are built with biophysics in mind. 
 
This is a huge shortcoming of today’s medical field.  Leading-edge doctors are making use of the latest silver technologies, but many more doctors still think in an obsolete paradigm.
 
Beyond Just Chemistry
 
As methods of using silver have advanced over the centuries, the primary focus has been on chemistry.  Whether dealing with basic metallurgy or finding ways to access silver within a liquid, the questions have generally centered around “what are the ingredients” and “what size are the particles.”  These questions led us from using silver coins in our water supplies (the root of today’s odd practice of throwing coins into public fountains) to basic colloidal silver products, ionic silver liquids, and even to nanosilver solutions.  These advances led humanity from primitive access of silver to a much better form.
 
However, the progress does not stop with chemistry.  Newer forms of silver are also utilizing physics to even further improve our access to silver.  In addition to the questions of ingredients and size, leaders in the field are now also asking, “How does biophysics apply?”
 
For instance, did you know that silver is the best conductor of energy on the entire Periodic Table of the Elements, yet that most of today’s silver products do not take advantage of this?  Most of today’s popular silver products also do not take advantage of recent breakthroughs in magnetics that profoundly affect molecular structure, the characteristics of water, and ultimately the ability of an end product to defeat pathogens.
 
Summarized, by the year 2013 there were several silver products on the market with excellent chemistry, but very few with equally excellent physics.  The difference in performance is clear in lab results and clinical healing times, but many people are not yet accustomed to thinking in terms of biophysics and thus find these performance differences confusing.
 
If you are new to the term “biophysics,” I suggest taking a few minutes to do an online search for the topic.  It will prove most illuminating. 
 
Very briefly, biophysics strives to address biological questions while using tools and principles from physics.  This includes magnetism, wavelengths (including x-rays and MRI), nanotechnology, and energy.  Biophysics is already used in hospitals throughout North America, yet most people are still more accustomed to thinking of health within the biochemistry model that was dominantly explored and taught throughout the 20th century.

What Would Two Dimensions Feel Like?

Ever wonder what life would be like in only two dimensions? If you could only move forwards and backwards and side to side, but not up or down?

This video has fun playing with life in 2D:

What dimensions are we blind to? “None” is a fairly safe answer, but it’s much more fun to imagine where a 4th dimension might go. If your answer is “time”, then our inability to move freely forward and backward through time makes us seem pretty limited, not unlike the Circles in Flatland!
