Tawai, Voice from the Forest

'Tawai is a word the nomadic hunter-gatherers of Borneo use to describe the connection they feel to their forest home. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, Bruce Parry (of the BBC's Tribe, Amazon & Arctic) embarks on an immersive odyssey to explore the different ways that humans relate to nature and how this influences the way we create our societies. From the forests of the Amazon and Borneo to the River Ganges and Isle of Skye, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.'

The Morphogenic Field, Global Consciousness & The Human Connection.

Lecture by; Michael Persinger, who is a cognitive neuroscience researcher and university professor. He studies brain functions, sub-consciousness, remote viewing, information field and possibilities of telepathy. He believes humans share emotional connection over great distances.

Remote viewing - The scientific understanding of the remote-viewing phenomenon has greatly advanced in recent years, and as a result the process of remote viewing can now be reliably demonstrated in both laboratory and operational settings. There are a number of styles of remote-viewing procedures that are popularly practiced, such as Scientific Remote Viewing (SRV), Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV), Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild procedures (HRVG)

Theodore Roszak : Towards an Eco-Psychology

Modern psychoanalysis and existential therapy view human beings as essentially creatures of alienation in a hostile universe. Roszak suggests that a psychology that fails to examine ecological relationships is incomplete. He points to the anthropic principle in cosmology as providing a central place for human beings in the universe. The Gaia hypothesis in systems theory evokes lyrical poetry in suggesting that the planet itself may be viewed as a conscious, self-regulating being.

Roszak proposes that in our psychological depths we are deeply connected with nature. He suggests that a greater balance in our relationship with nature will naturally accompany healthier relationships between the genders and greater individual psychological health.

The lateTheodore Roszak, Ph.D., was professor of history at California State University, Hayward. He was author of numerous books including Where The Wasteland Ends, The Making of A Counterculture, Person Planet, The Cult of Information and The Voice of The Earth.

Brahmi a most amazing Brain Enhancing Herb

From this week's newsletter:

One of the most amazing brain-enhancing herbs I have ever come across is Brahmi, or bacopa monnieri. This is not to be confused with another amazing herb gotu kola, also sometimes known as Brahmi.

Bacopa monnieri can repair damaged neural tissue, swiftly and noticeably improve short-term memory and even help you relax and sleep more deeply at night. Brahmi protects the neural system rather than stimulating it. A pleasant way to take it is in drinks such as teas, chocolate drinks and juices. For many people it seems to increase mental power quite radically and quickly. It does this in a sustainable way. As an Ayurvedic herb, it has been used in India for centuries.

The Powerful Health Benefits of Iodine - Dr. Edward Group

Did you know that over 90% of people and pets in the U.S. are mineral deficient? And most of those people are deficient in iodine?

In this Dr. Group interview, he explains how low iodine levels are connected to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, and more. Iodine deficiency is now attributed as the biggest cause of low IQ and mental retardation.

Good iodine levels lead to cellular apoptosis (cancer cell death), increased energy, adrenal gland repair, decrease in brain fog, a fertility boost, and much more.

Geometry at the End of Time

Daniel Pinchbeck and Robert Lawlor interview.

"It's only consciousness that survives the Kali Yuga."
"It is only death that can bestow rebirth"

"Certainly, we should give it our best shot to reconstruct see the systems that we have but on but there's forces that seem to just keep that in a sort of dream diary.. in the 1960s when we're realizing we should stop cutting down the forest and the thing in South America … it's all accelerated from those times the trees are falling in Brazil faster than ever ...I don't think anyone should stop doing anything; it's not for that; you don't stop maintaining your body when you get older and you you're going to die, you even increase it, but that still doesn't eliminate thatvwhen you have a beginning middle you have an end and this is what the yuga system outlines."

Tonya Zavasta ~ Sixty years old on raw food

"Every day, somebody writes me saying something like this…
Tonya, I used to have such a nice complexion. Another person writes: I used to have such a beautiful slim body. Or this one: I used to run marathons. And now my energy level is low.
There is a lot you can do to improve your health, your skin condition, and your overall appearance. I am doing it. And so can you."

The Symbiotic Birth of Humanity with Tony Wright

Did a rare and unique symbiotic relationship result in a state of suspended maturation, a perpetual state of juvenility and the emergence and expansion
 of an increasingly symmetric juvenile brain that brought with it a raft of unusual traits?

"the possibility that we retained those juvenile features voracious appetite for new experience well if you retain that all your life you've become hyperintelligent you have phenomenal intelligence and again it's hinted at in these ancient traditions vastly more intelligent probably a very different
kind of intelligence and that juvenile phase was entirely dependent on this
symbiotic relationship with the fruit"

Eating whole fruits linked to lower risk of type 2 diabetes

“Our data further endorse current recommendations on increasing whole fruits, but not fruit juice, as a measure for diabetes prevention,” said lead author Isao Muraki, research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at HSPH. “And our novel findings may help refine this recommendation to facilitate diabetes prevention.”

Entheo-Science with Dana Beal
Mechanism of Nerve Growth Factor GDNF Elucidates Ibogaine’s Persistence and Immune Modulatory Effects

This slide presentation/lecture explores ibogaine’s persistent “resprouting” of dopaminergic dendrites and receptors via the nerve growth factor Glia-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) as a marker for a broader REM-mimetic neuro-plasticity with outcomes ranging from behavioral to immune-system benefits.

Ibogaine shares robust receptor effects with both Salvia Divinorum (kappa opiate agonism,  down-regulating tolerance via  beta-arrestin) and with ketamine (n-Methyl-d-Aspartate antagonism, curbing narcotic withdrawal and super-sensitization to stimulants). However, neither of these account for ibogaine’s signature long-lasting effect against cocaine/alcohol (Bruno Rasmussen Chaves, 2014) or opiate abuse (Thomas Kingsley Brown, 2017).

In a series of papers (2005, 6, 10) Dorit Ron et al established that ibogaine unexpectedly expresses the nerve growth factor (GDNF), re-sprouting chronically desensitized dopamine receptors, replacing the neural deficit experienced as craving. Not only that, the 10-fold GDNF spike engendered by ibogaine back-signals to cell nuclei to make more GDNF, setting up a persistent, benign auto-regulatory loop that accounts for ibogaine’s  persistent effect. This is confirmed by the recent discovery that as little as 4 mgs of ibogaine twice a day for 28 days significantly reverses Parkinson’s degeneration (case studies, unpublished), since one typical effect of end-stage methamphetamine abuse on dopamine function is Parkinsonianism.

Interestingly, the thesis  that ibogaine is a true oneiric which one experiences as “a dream body in a dream landscape” (Alper, Lotsof 2009) as elaborated in Carl Anderson’s prescient paper (MAPS, 1998) on ibogaine and fetal REM is buttressed by the fact that knock-out mice without a GDNF gene have no adrenals because they are born without kidneys. This raises intriguing issues not only of REM as orchestrator of fetal/neonatal growth, but the extreme usefulness of a true REM-mimetic in modulating the immune systems of adults seen in ibogaine amelioration of auto-immune disorders such as MS and Crohn’s disease (case studies), and some complications of AIDS.
