Since the U.S. markets are closed today, and we’ll skim through a few headlines first. But then, how’s about we do some really far-fetched fun stuff? Woo-Woo?
I’m going to explain a theory of “light pumping” and how a new “whole body light” technology may be just ahead. I’m doing this mainly to “put it out there” as “open source” so monetizers can’t try to steal what ought to be free. A reference to this article is appreciated, if you build any derivative devices, though (thanks!).
2-cups of Columbian, we’ll begin with a few Monday morning headlines to be…
Noted in Passing
We are again appalled by the double-standards of the Mainstream press after reading Massachusetts standoff: Authorities charge 11 people involved in standoff with police – CNN. Reason? I got a five-dollar bet that if the “suspects” had been White, the term “supremacists” would have been heavily sprinkled. But, since the “suspects” weren’t… (Moorish, rather), well, you know how we feel about racial double-standards and division-enhanced reporting by now, one hopes.
As long as we’re on efforts to “Dis-Unite” America, though: how about White supremacist marchers ‘ran away’ from Philly residents, police say (from yahoo.com)? We didn’t see any gun references, but did note how these were branded supremacists? Everything’s a Business Model, as we continually point out. We live in a Nation whose main growth industry is hate and division. Which really sucks, when comes down to it. (Which is why we are living in the woods…want no part of Group Think, thanks. Constitution is about equality and excellence which has served us well for 70+ years.
Seriously, watch how the left has tooled-up the American Demise. Which future historians will refer to as A.D. Such that reclaiming equality is branded racism by the Digital Uprising. Marx, we’re pretty sure, would have a million followers on Social Media. (Which is where dumb people write (free) content for the rich and piss away time…but hey, it’s Monday and I’m grouchy…)
Don’t mind our candor: We’re still wading through search results [for “racist math”] and wondering has more than simple mind-bending fluoride been put in the nation’s water supplies? We may be the only ones to read the literature when we have questions. Here for example is a 2019 paper which says (in part):
“Fourteen recent cross-sectional studies from endemic areas with naturally high fluoride concentrations in groundwater supported the previous findings of cognitive deficits in children with elevated fluoride exposures. Three recent prospective studies from Mexico and Canada with individual exposure data showed that early-life exposures were negatively associated with children’s performance on cognitive tests. Neurotoxicity appeared to be dose-dependent, and tentative benchmark dose calculations suggest that safe exposures are likely to be below currently accepted or recommended fluoride concentrations in drinking water.” (emphasis added for the slow -G)
But hey! Let’s not ask hard questions, right? Have another glass of water and go with Mob Rule and whatever’s behind Curtain 2024 for the next Round! God, don’tcha just feel compelled to write something on Social now?
Instead, look at the data and how fame drives people and…well…read how Joey Chestnut chows down 76 hot dogs, breaks own world record at annual Fourth of July contest and see if you can put it into words. Too early for me to even try. (Mustard with that?)
Broken Web, II evolving! Yes, I wrote the original book (Broken Web, Amazon) back in 2012. But no, I didn’t get into the hijacking and criminalization of the web, nor the crooked digital money (BTC was around $34,750 this morning – on payoff demand we wonder?) which makes ransomware so profitable. No need to write an update though since Joe Biden not only cures all that ails us, but must be a computer whiz as well. Have doubts? More water and a read Friday’s report Biden Says ‘Not Sure’ if Russians Are Behind Latest Cyberattacks (theepochtimes.com). Bitcoin to the moon, then, because it’s the crypto of crime rising! (We are sooo f*cked!)
Let’s see if we can find something positive to say. How about ”
No need to water the lawn Wednesday if you live in Tampa-St. Pete?”
Of course, it wouldn’t take much to move it into Mississippi or ‘Bama so we shall see…
Real Brain Food
A couple of good articles on the future of the Web in First Monday this month. Try Understanding cancel culture: Normative and unequal sanctioning | First Monday for starters.
Another interesting title? I mean, if your world-view includes wondering about how Social Media was used by officialdom to promote acceptance of an untrialed drug and agreeing to never sue over it: Friends get vaccinated: The power of social media groups in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
(Repeat after me: Everything’s a Business Model!)
England Up, Germany down, France flat when we eyed it earlier. Thing is, Japan and Hong Kong were both down half a percent, so if that carries into tomorrow, we don’t see a lot of reason for markets to move higher from here.
On the Tuesday agenda: Some minor data (PMI and mid morning Treasury rates) but you’ll want to read the Fed Minutes out Wednesday afternoon. A bunch more rate data points and the Fed balance sheet Thursday. We’ll keep a pot of red ink stirred up for that.
Now to the fun stuff:
Monday Shop Woo-Woo
NONE OF THE FOLLOWING IS MEDICAL ADVICE AND NO CLAIMS TO TREAT DISEASE ARE MADE BY US. WE OFFER NOTHING FOR SALE. THIS IS AN INFORMATIONAL REPORT ON LIGHT/ENERGY MEDICINE AND MY PERSONAL TINKERING.
First, the Light Crown story and background
On the Peoplenomics subscriber site, you can trace back to some of my earlier (2014-2016) work involving “light pumping” of the human body. In fact, a lot of material we are going to cover this morning was given to Peoplenomics subscribers back in 2018. Here’s the intro to that article…
How to Make a Speed Crown
I wrote a fair bit about the Light Crown Project and my initial personal, favorable results using it.
The Light Crown is based on a very simple notion that is apparent when we look at the construction of royal crowns down through history.
They are devices, worn on the head, that seem to have been used initially to stimulate a certain part of the head with particular colors of light.
A first longish article appeared in this Peoplenomics report back in the fall of 2016. The Light Crown Project – adventures in photobiomodulation. Let’s pick it up from there.
The initial embodiment seemed to stimulate (non-gray, lol) hair. Also, long-term mental acuity seemed improved, but this was purely subjective after 6-month use and longer.
Theory of Operation
There is a great deal of literature (primarily Indian – as in India) about Chakras and their stimulation via exercises and breathing technique.
What back when, it occurred to me that in the study of chakras there was also a rich tradition of specific colors associated with specific chakras.
The second device previously described (2018) on the Peoplenomics called a “Speed Crown” site was very simple (in theory anyway) green semi-coherent light (low power LED) applied to the right temple (over the trigeminal nerve bundle) while a similar, also low-power, blue light was applied to the left temple.
The power is low (not much over 4.6 joules/sq.mm, a level being trialed as “safe” in photobiomodulation eye therapy) so no skin damage was expected.
“Speed Crown” Personal results: What amazed me (after 5-6 days of once-daily 10-15 minute sessions) was my need for sleep became dramatically reduced (down to 4- hours per night) and my physical energy (vitality) went through the roof.
In Indian tradition, the green chakra is associated with the heart. The blue is associated with the throat.
Speed Crown Construction
Two major materials changes have occurred since the 2018 Peoplenomics report: these having to do with adhesives and with LEDs.
On adhesives: I am now using a UV-curing glue to assemble the LED panels.
On the LEDs: Pre-fabricated LED panels are now widely available as marker lights for atv’s, cars and trucks. Here’s are some blue ones:
Key point: Make sure that any LEDs used in personal experiments are not white under a covered lens, right?
When joined, two six LED panels (to make a combined 12 LED panel) there was some difficulty with the rounded form factor. This was resolved by running them through the band saw to “square things up.” As a result, a good glue-up was achieved. (Band saw and belt sanders are useful, much less tedious than sand paper!)
A couple of dabs of super glue (gel) were used to tack.. Once that was dry along came the Big Boy glue – a clear, hard photo resin.
When working with photo resin and high powered UV curing lights. be certain to wear eye protection!
After tacking, the LEDs are roughly equally spaced. To this, you apply a bead of clear photo resin (front and rear) and cure under an appropriate UV source.
Since the panels come with pre-drilled holes, simply get an extra-wide woman’s hair band and attach one to each side. Wing nuts (boy do we have them, right?) allow for adjustment to fit.
Connect the 2 red wires (on each side) to a +12 volt source with the black wires going to the ground (common). Current drain is low and an adjustable power adapter runs fine (and cooler) at 9 VDC.
Have fun with it. 10-15 minutes a day is plenty for me. I use it at 9 volts.
THIS IS NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE AND NO CLAIMS ARE MADE This is a report on my personal experience with the units I’ve made and tested on myself… Not like it’s NZT-48, or something.
Does it do anything more than give me an energy boost? Not so far (as I can tell…) but interestingly, after I get a week to 10-days worth of “hit” from it, I just naturally back-off use. Like it’s that level of “peak performance” may not be sustainable.
Pretty interesting stuff.
It’s unlikely to work for all people – but it sure seems to work for me. Psychological effect? Placebo? Hmmm…
A Bigger Project in View
What comes into view in this “light pumping” discussion is the possibility of “chakra pumping” of all identified points. This is envisioned – in the future – as a series of lights, each keyed (and pulsed for best effect) at the tailbone, lower back, solar plexus, heart, throat, pineal gland region, and top of head. In addition this device (trigeminal nerve stimulus) might also be incorporated.
The whole idea encapsulated as “LightYoga.” Here, the idea is to use low power LED lights to “spin-up” chakras which would otherwise be stimulated by physical exercise. The described light arrays could be applied as an alternative to form-based yoga, or they could be use combinatorically.
The one risk I see in this kind of research is (oddly) a financial one. If everyone in the world were to adopt light therapy that halts (or even reverses) aging, then Social Security and government entitlement programs all go bankrupt. (Yes, another Ure novel is in the works with this theme…)
Light Medicine Lags
Honestly, I was very disappointed as the Light Crown project evolved (mainly, so far) into a tool to grow back hair (which the application of low level laser light therapy (LLLLT) at modest levels to the head will do.
More important aspects, I believe, is the potential for treating serious aging diseases (like Alzheimer’s) especially when coupled with the 40 Hz visual flicker technology that has been developed at M.I.T.
I’m disclosing an evolution and embodiment of this technology today in order that future marketers will not be able to claim patent rights to the following idea in the future.
Let me describe a new kind of light-pulsing of monitors and televisions optimized for the 40 Hz rate which may have a salutary effect on preventing the advance of Alzheimer’s. The notion is to apply the flicker rate of 40Hz to all television and computer monitors. With additional pulse forms (yet to be studied) which could operate in tandem with a 40 Hz refresh rate screen.
The idea is stimulating the visual cortex along the lines of the MIT studies via a simple setting of screen refresh rates. I will be sending this later today to both IRIS and F. Lux who make screen control software. Hopefully one (or both) of them will incorporate the improvement.
Not Free Lunch, though: this will only work on televisions and monitors with 60 Hz rates, since you can slow down the refresh rate from 60 Hz. But you can’t “push 30 up to 40 Hz” without component issues.
In the event additional research finds that a specific pulse width at 40 Hz is most efficacious, then claim is made for a Complex Video Pulse technology. This technology is foreseen as incorporating a higher-output portion of a screen pulse (at the medically efficacious frequencies) and a “back porch” of lower power but longer duration. This would provide for accentuated pulse forming for Alzheimer’s while at the same time reducing risk of flicker vertigo and other effects possible with more complex waveforms.
Anyway, enough on that for now.
Yes, Real Science
At the U.S. Government site (Search of: photobiomodulation OR LLLT – List Results – ClinicalTrials.gov) you will see applications of light medicine now covering an increasing range of ailments. Assisting in breast cancer recovery, dealing with autism and ADHD, not to mention the light uses which have slowed Elaine’s age-related macular degeneration (AMD) to effectively zero now for more than 8-years.
The use of photobiomodulation (red light and near infrared) in eye treatments is now well-established for people suffering from age related macular degeneration. One of the leaders in this is a company called Lumithera. (The link is to the less hamstrung European version of their website, rather than the more regulated (US FDA regulated) part of their site, lol. When doing health research, we prefer non-US sites for this reason, BTW.)
There’s some very good data-driven science evolving and we’ve been actively using our home grown light therapy with no negative consequences since 2014-2016.
This is NOT something to tinker with unless you work with a healthcare provider who is knowledgeable in the field. Over exposure to certain types of light (especially UV!) can result in permanent eye damage and the experience of a personal sunburn, or “welder’s tan” should underscore that it’s always Safety First.
Again, THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE AND MAKES NO CLAIMS AND OFFERS NOTHING FOR SALE.
