Earlier I’ve written about real food and fake food, and how deception determines so much of what we desire and believe. All these matters are essential determinants of your health.
The human mind is the most fascinating and complex device known to mankind. Its functions are studied persistently by tens of thousands of researchers each day, but still its nature and properties largely remain a mystery. Yet, some important facts are known, among these, that your mind determines, to a very large extent your overall health.
Our minds have the capacity to heal our bodies. The same mental power can and frequently is applied to cause illness within our bodies. We can will ourselves to improved health, and we can will our bodies to die.
It’s possible for person to eat all the right foods and get ample amounts of exercise yet still succumb to debilitating diseases. Yes, there may be environmental factors that cause illnesses such as cancer, yet a positive disposition, along with cannabis oil and other natural cures can overcome these attacks. However, if one’s mind succumbs to negative thought and despair, death may be given an invitation.
Some, including this writer, believe that negative thinking is an environmental problem. Television and other mass media are saturated with this poison. Whether or not one is aware of this, advertisements for pharmaceuticals are actually invitations to contract diseases, and if not a particular disease, then the symptoms of that disease. “Ask your doctor” if you need a particular pharmaceutical means to submit to dependency and to create those particular symptoms which justify that doctor prescribing what you ask for. Wanna take this pill? Then give yourself the symptoms if not the complete disease. All it takes is to dwell upon the possibility that you have any particular disease, and your mind does the rest. You will have it.
If it seems no one in their right mind wants a disease … well, many people do.
For some of us, it’s a means of getting attention, and for others, a path to being pampered.
If it seems that health and disease have mystical roots, then the point is made. This is not to say that old-fashioned Voodoo is necessary. Advertising is a form of modern state-of-the-art Voodoo. The mind is a mystical element separate from the brain. This is illustrated by medical records of heart transplant patients, whose heart recipients received memories from deceased organ donors along with the transplanted heart. Memories transplanted include specific names, dates, skills and experiences.
When Harvey G. Cox, Jr. wrote The Secular City, the technique of maneuvering minds and people was known as “human engineering.” A look at Wikipedia now defines the same concept as both ergonomics and human enhancement:
Human enhancement technologies (HET) are techniques that can be used not simply for treating illness and disability, but also for enhancing human characteristics and capacities. In some circles, the expression ‘human enhancement technologies’ is synonymous with emerging technologies or converging technologies. In other circles, the expression ‘human enhancement’ is roughly synonymous with human genetic engineering, it is used most often to refer to the general application of the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science (NBIC) to improve human performance.
The importance of this concept “human performance” cannot be overstated. From the time we enter society away from a family unit, we are monitored for performance. Unfortunately, nearly everyone in developed countries is being removed from a central family unit at a very early age, under the guise of “day care.” The necessity to conform to social standards now includes the expectation, if not a presumed economic necessity, of sending babies to a center to be cared for (hopefully, or euphemistically) by strangers. From this point forward in a person’s life, “performance” is continually monitored and measured. At school, and as early as kindergarten, children who do not perform according to arbitrary standards are deemed inadequate and are diagnosed with behavioral problems. Forced ingestion of powerful psychotropic drugs begins, and this has nothing at all to do with an individual’s health, mental or physical.
Self-determination is no longer considered optimal for people. “Powers that be” prefer to engineer or “enhance” everything we think and do, feel and desire. Among those possible desires is included the state of one’s health.
At the very core of bodily health is the continual regeneration of cells to replace those that are worn out and dead. How well you regenerate depends to some extent upon your state of mind. Regeneration of your health is then a mystical process.
Should anyone abdicate this exceedingly great power to regenerate to the likes of drug dealers slinging propaganda in order to make a few billion dollars? Of course not; but this happens every day.
