For Whom The Bell Tolls

We are again stunned by a shocking tragedy. How can such a thing happen? The roots of today’s violence were sewn long ago. At the beginning, when the seeds of pain and violence were created through neglect, comparison, not being seen, birth trauma and everyday abuse, constantly feeling compared, judged, told no, not being touched or touched violently, not being understood and responded to as we are, authentically – here is where the preventive response must be. Not gun control, not more prisons, not castrating the rapist – not more pain for an already tortured global body and psyche. We must respond but at the root, at the beginning by preventing these painful, violent neurons from forming.

James W. Prescott, PhD, has been researching and writing about the Origins of Love and Violence for fifty years: “You won’t find a violent individual in prison who has been breastfeed for 2.5 years or longer.” Years ago Joseph Chilton Pearce wrote a chapter in Magical Child: A Time Bomb in the Nursery. David B. Chamberlain, PhD, author of Babies Remember Birth and The Mind of Your Newborn Baby summed it up: “The way we treat babies is how those babies will treat the world.” Primal researcher and innovator of water birth Michel Odent, MD, uses the phrase; “A chronic and global diminished capacity to love.” “It is the environment not the genes,” says Bruce Lipton, PhD, author of The Biology of Belief and Spontaneous Evolution.

Declining Fertility and Depopulation

When Bad is Good or Look What I Found in the Cornflakes

An astounding new study in the British medical journal Human Reproduction this week has revealed that French sperm counts plunged by a third between 1989 and 2005, 32.2 percent or about 1.9 percent annually. The findings of one of the largest sperm quality probes ever. Might there be a link between impaired fertility and Genetically Modified Food and mandatory vaccinations?

Crossing the street, talking to a bright 20 something about kids and population, she said, ‘We should have a test to be sure young people are qualified to have kids.’ ‘What if they don’t pass the test,’ I mused? ‘Well… they shouldn’t be allowed to have children.’ That’s what Hitler thought. It leads to the Holocaust. In his mind a good thing. ‘No way,’ she said.

Caring for children is a tremendous responsibility. Abuse is rampant causing permanent physical, emotional and social damage and none of this is the child’s fault. It feels like a good idea to limit population to those who are qualified. But who’s to decide? Who is going to write the test? Which one of us is smart enough to decide which species are approved of and which don’t make the cut? What skin color will we approve? Which language? Which belief system, national, political or religious beliefs? Some view same sex – sex a crime. We can get rid of them, no problem. And so it goes.

Who shouldn’t be allowed to have children (birth control) and who should be allowed to populate the planet (population control) are two sides of the same coin and often fueled by the same well intended logic as my young friend and Hitler.

GMOs We Can't Undo


In his book Enough, Bill McKibben argues that genetic engineering, robotics, and nanotechnology are taking us past a point of no return. We now stand, in Michael Pollan's words, "on a moral and existential threshold," poised between the human past and a post-human future. Post human future? Is that what is on the table with Genetically Modified Foods? I think so. Why? What is behind the curtain? It is not simply food. Exploring the link between GMOs and declining fertility.

Kaiser Permanente: GMO’s are Devastating Health
From  NaturalSociety

28 November 12
Just days after a leading genetically modified organism (GMO) researcher spoke out against GMOs and how many pro-GMO 'scientists' are in bed with Monsanto or carry their own GMO patents, the largest managed healthcare provider in the United States is now publicly speaking out against GMOs. In a recent newsletter, the Kaiser Permanente company discussed the numerous dangers of GMOs in a recent newsletter and how to avoid them.

Cell Phones and WiFi = Microwave Radiation

Fried-Brains in the Sand
For months, no, years, the research keeps pouring in. Microwave radiation affects LIFE from DNA expression to birds, bees, our bodies and our brains. Yet, we give this radiation to our kids, hold it up to our heads, fill our homes and workplaces with it - without blink. How strange is that? Poison is poison - even if we can’t see it

There are two fundamental issues: Learning and Behavior and the way microwave radiation damages the body. 

On the first: Joan Almond and the Alliance for Childhood just released a lovely report:
Facing the Screen Dilemma. A must read on the impact of screen time on learning and behavior. Also see:
The Emerging Technology Disaster in Early Childhood Education.

A new documentary: Resonance – Beings of Frequency, begins by describing how the earth’s and our brain’s natural frequency are the same and what happens when we introduce artificial microwave radiation. Up to date and revealing. View and share.

Then dig deeper with Barry Trower, former government agent specializing in microwave radiation by the military.

Government, Industry and Government Scientists will be responsible for more deaths (of civilians) in peace time than all the terrorist organizations ever. The evidence I have is showing this is correct. I put my money where my mouth is and stand my ground. I trained at the Governments Microwave Warfare establishment in 60's. I worked with the underwater bomb disposal unit, which used microwaves.

In the 70's I helped de-brief spies trained in microwave warfare.
My first degree is in Physics (I specialized in microwaves)
My second degree is a research degree.
I have a teaching diploma in human physiology.
I teach advanced physics and mathematics at South Dartmoor College.

Trower, author of the Tetra Report [Tetra a telecommunications system used by police]...

I predicted the illnesses, which the officers now complain of. I predicted the illnesses the residents now complain of.

Secret Report On Cell Phone Dangers And Tetra.
Confidential Report On TETRA Strictly For The Police Federation Of England and Wales
By B. Trower 11-25-4

Low-level microwaves have been known as very dangerous to our soft, water-based bodies since the 1970’s, when Government Scientists warned the military, at the time, against exposure (enclosed). It makes absolutely no difference which box they come out of: be it TETRA/02/Airwave [police telecommunication system] – or any of the mobiles. The pulsing (modulations), power-density and frequency may cause variations with some people – but you cannot change the risk factor of the basic microwaves. Consultant Solicitor Alan Meyer said “It is quite simple – an employer must provide a safe system of work”: You cannot – and will never – be able to demonstrate that long-term, low-level microwaves are safe.

Politics is Theater

Culture is a meta-ego created and sustained by the same source, fear and conflict, which spawned our personal ego. This meta-ego suffers from the same dis-eases; comparison, jealously, revenge, self-centered aggression, depression, pride, humiliation and all the rest. Culture is a group mind and that mind was created and shaped by the same egotistical fearful selfishness that defines our individual images of self. When that image is not – neither is the disease.

Things To Consider

The Environment – Food – Vaccinations – Economics – Media – Health – Globalization – Terror – Nutrition & Behavior – The State Of The Union – Genetically Engineered Food – Empathy – The Federal Reserve - What Are They Spraying? – Dolphin Rings…
So many things to consider.

From time to time when an extraordinary topic surfaces, one that impacts all of us I post them to Touch the Future’s home page.

Pleasure is BAD Get Over It

The Time cover Mom Enough, marked the 20th anniversary of The Baby Book by William Sears, MD, labeling attachment parenting practices such as child-led weaning as “extreme.” No surprise, expected really, by echoing a professional party line dating back over 100 years times ten and more.

Please review and share the fabulous re-shoot and Pathways Family Wellness Magazine follow-up on Times most provocative cover story in decades.

To understand why, first realize that a woman’s body was built, among other tings, for pleasure. In a culture where pleasure is BAD pleasure becomes a commodity, something to be possessed, sold and controlled, especially by males whose normal sensory development has been retarded resulting in a cultural hyper-need-response to what is deprived, driving up the value and the compulsive need to possess and control it.

Ashley Montague notes in the Dehumanization of Man (and Woman via children), ‘the central issue of Western thought and civilizations is freedom vs. control.’ In 1932 with the publication of Brave New World, Aldous Huxley predicted an increasing and rapid centralization of power and control, not through oppression and terror, we have that too, but rather through the subtler devices of conditioning, persuasion, new drugs and distraction. What does rapid centralization of power and control have to do with breast feeding and equally intimate circumcision?

Strolling to the office, a plaque rested in a merchant’s window.

She Knew She Was Worth More Than Babies...

Worth more than babies? What could possibly be worth more, be a higher calling, the greatest and life changing challenge anyone, man or woman will face than caring, nurturing, uplifting, inspiring, encouraging the greater good of evolution’s billion year creative effort, the human being?

Dumb is Good - Dumber is Better

“TV and compulsory schooling do the same thing but differently…” John Taylor Gatto

Bored, reparative, rote, uncritical, uncreative, unimaginative, easily influenced, subservient to authority, behavior modification and obedience trained… the perfect consumer. Herd mentality is the goal of both.

'Form is Content' and when conditioning is the goal content and standards are a hoax, a distraction to hide from view the deeper conditioning agenda. This is no secret. It is in plain view, but he conditioning is so good that few have the capacity, attention or ability to question how the system operates.

The Flag is Still Waving, Barely

lincoln

Happy Fourth of July, bombs bursting in air, the war torn flag still waving, barely.

Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
