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.
