HAVE WE LOST CONTROL OF OUR LIVES?
For most of human history, our ancestors have had little or no control over their lives. Until recently, the vast majority of human beings have had no control of where they lived, how they lived or how they died. They were under the control of the forces of nature, kings, despots and dictators, armies, governments, and religious organizations. It is only for a little more than two hundred years that we’ve had some freedom to live and die where and how we choose. This has nurtured the belief that we have an absolute right to such freedoms.
The United States of America was founded by men who envisioned their new country as one free nation under God, with freedom and justice for all! They declared that we are all created equal in the eyes of God, and that we have inalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The belief that this is true, along with some sharing of relative peace, security and wealth, has lulled us into a state of compacency. But suddenly, with the shut-down of Western Civilization by the COVID-19 pandemic, this all seems to come into question again. We no longer have those inalienable rights. Governments around the world have issued stay-at-home and social-distancing orders. We no longer have the freedom to move, travel and pursue happiness in the way we choose. We begin to wonder: Is this just a temporary setback, or are we in danger of sliding back into the harsh reality endured by our ancestors?
In the last post, I talked about how difficult it is to find the real truth underlying complex things like the COVID-19 pandemic and conspiracy theories that may be very complex and have at least some elements of truth in them. In this post, I want to address two separate issues that seem, at first glance, to be very different and unrelated. But they actually have several things in common, and may even be directly related, according to some reports. These two issues are: 1) Mandated vaccination for COVID-19, and 2) the upgrade to 5G electronic technology. What do they have in common? First, both appear to be about to be forced upon us; and second, they are both environmental pollutants: The vaccine will add to the synthetic materials already polluting your bloodstream, in the name of preventing the COVID-19 disease, and 5G technology will add to the already problematic pollution of your external environment by synthetic chemicals and electromagnetic radiation, in the name of making your life easier; and third, they are both complex enough to inspire the generation of some interesting conspiracy theories.
There are already far too many detrimental impacts today on the health of the planet and its inhabitants from synthetic chemicals and biological compounds, radioactive by-products and electromagnetic technologies, that have been released into the environment as a result of industrial and military experimentation without sufficient independent research into what harmful effects they might have. The history of scientific and technological advancement over the last 100 plus years is replete with examples of products touted as wonderful by their developers, that actually turned out to have unexpected disasterously detrimental effects on plant, animal and human life.
Dupont, one of the giants of the American chemical industry, trumpeted the slogan "Better Living Through Chemistry“ from 1935 until 1982. The company changed the slogan in 1982, when we began to see that many man-made chemicals, instead of producing "better living“ were actually sickening and killing people. Sadly, we apparently still haven’t learned the lesson that unleashing a new technology just because we can do so, before we have sufficient understanding and wisdom to foresee what the effects will be, is a recipe for disaster, even though humanity has long known this problem at a deeper, intuitive level of consciousness. It has cropped up in literature for hundreds of years, from Greek mythology (about 900 BC) with Prometheus defying the gods and giving humans fire before they were ready for it, to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Monster (1818), to numerous science fiction novels, movies and TV series with the theme of science run amuck.
Mandatory Mass Vaccination
To try to answer the question about freedom from unwanted government intervention in health issues through mandated vaccines, let‘s first have a look at what a vaccine is and how it works. A vaccine prepared for a specific disease contains the same micro-organism that causes the disease. The idea is to put a little bit of the disease-causing virus into your bloodstream, - not enough to make you sick - but just enough to provoke your natural immune system to start producing antigens that will destroy the invader. The vaccine will contain small amounts of the virus that causes the disease that have been either killed or weakened prior to injection.
Over the years since Louis Pasteur made the first vaccine in 1879, traces of other things have been added to make vaccines more effective. Today, a vaccine will probably contain purified viral proteins, inactivated bacterial toxins, bacterial polysaccharides; and, In addition to these substances, vaccines often contain other things that are there for specific reasons. For example: preservatives like Thimerosal are added to prevent bacterial contamination, salts of Aluminum, to help boost the immune system response, sugars and gelatin as stabilizers, egg protein as nutrition to keep the virus alive, and there may also be residual antibiotics like neomycin, left over from the manufacturing process.
Most allopathic physicians, pharmaceutical representatives and other proponents of mass vaccination, claim that “A vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies, exactly like it would if you were exposed to the disease. After getting vaccinated, you develop immunity to a disease, without having to get the disease first. This is what makes vaccines such powerful medicine. Unlike most medicines, which treat or cure diseases, vaccines prevent them.”
This sounds like a good argument for mass vaccination. However, there are some serious problems with using statements like this to justify mandatory mass vaccination, because human beings are not homogenous. We are all different. We have different, more or less effective immune systems, and this statement goes from the specific to the general without justification, one of the most common fallacies of inductive reasoning (see the last post) committed by scientists. There is ample evidence of the existence of individuals for whom the statement is actually false. For at least two classes of individuals, the statement is dangerously misleading: 1) For people with seriously compromised immunse systems, or virtually non-functioning immune systems, a vaccine may actually cause the individual to become sick with the disease, the exact opposite of the intended result. 2) Some of the sdditives in the vaccine may sicken individuals who are hyper-sensitive to synthetic chemicals, or who happen to be allergic to one or more of the vaccine’s ingredients. Mandatory mass vaccination could result in unintentionally inflicting serious illness or even death among these classes of individuals.
Most mainstream physicians seem to see a vaccine as the ultimate solution for the current pandemic. I will agree with them, to the extent that vaccines may have to play a role at this late date in a pandemic. But I do not see vaccines as the ultimate preventative solution to disease outbreaks. There is a much better solution that can prevent most communicable infectuous disease outbreaks from ever happening in the first place, so that vaccines with the certainty of undesirable side effects become necessary. But, to date, most people are not willing to take responsibility for their own health. They would rather have someone else tell them what to do. This is an insidiously dangerous habit, and the debate over vaccines has become almost as heated as the political division in the world. I have good friends on both sides of both divides.
Concerning the vaccine debate, There are actually some valid arguments on both sides, but much like with the political divide, people firmly entrenched on one side or the other seem unable to see any logic at all in the other side’s arguments. I think I understand some of the reasons that this is true. One reason, probably the main one, is the fact that the focus of medical schools, and the pharmaceutical industry, is on allopathic medicine (the use of drugs and surgery to treat or suppress symptoms or the ill effects of disease), and not on real solutions. Doctors are trained how to treat disease and disease symptoms, not how to keep healthy people healthy. This is understandable, because this is where the greatest need (and the most money) is: sick people.
The focus, in my opinion, should not be on disease, quick band-aide types of health care, insurance and profit, but on health. It should be on teaching people how to take responsibility for their own health, and how to keep and strengthen their natural immune systems while they are still strong and healthy. We have natural medicinal substances in the forms of herbs and essential oils that will do this without the side effects of synthetic chemicals and drugs, but the medical and pharmacetical industries ignore them, or even try to deny that they exist, because natural cures greatly reduce their profits in many ways.
The fact is, God, through nature, has provided medicines that cure without the unwanted side effects of man-made quick fixes. When natural health becomes the focus instead of disease and profit, the use of vaccines will become unnecessary. I see some evidence that the tide is beginning to turn in younger medical school graduates, but most physicians who have been practicing meicine for several years, and the entire pharmaceutical industry seem to have tunnel vision, focusing exclusively on disease and profit.
When materialistic science and technology fails us, and politicized government gets involved by mandating things, individual freedom is sacrificed, the value of a individual life is weighed by burocrats, and we are on a slippery slope. And government isn’t the only organization of fallible human beings that seeks to control us. Because of highly-paid lobbiests and the dishonesty of many politicians, government often works hand-in-hand with large profit-motivated industries to force technologies upon us that are detrimental to human and planetry health. The next generation of electronic technology, called 5G (Fifth Generation technology) is the latest in this parade of potential disasters.
The Upgrade to 5G Technology
Is this upgrade in electronic technology a good thing or a bad thing? I’m sure the developers of 5G technology see it as a good thing. They are probably not yet tired of making lots of money. Maybe they could donate some of their unbelievable wealth to support our research. I will not hold my breath for that to happen! The question here is, has there been enough research on the effects of electromagnetic radiation in the frequencies utilized by 5G for us to know whether it is safe or not. The answer is: "yes“, "no" or "we don’t know", depending on who you ask. This is a ready-made subject for conspiracy theorists. However, in the case of 5G technology, there is a fine line between conspiracy theory and legitimate concern.
The fact is, there has been a lot of research on the effects of 2G, 3G, and 4G, and the results are not encouraging. All you need do is go online, where you will find hundreds of peer-reviewed papers by independent researchers on the effects of the current wireless technologies. Read even a few of them, and you will soon realize that we already know that the 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, that have been in use for some time in cell phones, computers and wearable electronic gadgets, create radiofrequency exposures which pose serious health risks to humans, animals and the environment. Identified threats to human health range from mild discomforts to psychological confusion to brain cancer. The urgent pleas of a number of scientists that much more research on human health effects should have been done before initiating the higher-energy 5G technology, to ensure reasonable protection of public and environment health, have been largely ignored.
Excitement among the money-hungry governmental lobbiests and telecommunications industry, and among users in the public who are eager for new faster, more powerful electronic devices, has motivated this rush to implement 5G. I have little doubt that this is another example of the Prometheus effect, and well may prove to be another "Better Living through …" disaster! If you have any doubt that 5G may be a dangerous example of this, I want to encourage you to go online and read just one of the many warning papers by reputable scientists, like a paper just released (April 2020): Adverse health effects of 5G mobile networking technology under real-life conditions, a paper authored by reputable scientists from major universities.
Here is a brief review of the paper:
This paper identifies the whole range of health effects of radiation from electronic devices and concludes that 5 G mobile networking technology will adversely affect the skin and eyes of users, and will also have adverse systemic effects. They estimate that 5G will increase the cell tower densities across the country by an order of magnitude. They note that the more energetic radiation of 5G will also penetrate more easily into the vital organs of small animals like birds and some pets than in humans. The authors point out that most laboratory experiments carried out by the industry were not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects that could occur in real-life conditions. For example, they do not include the pulsing and modulation of carrier signals and do not reflect the real-life exposures of various modulations and expected synergist effects of other toxic stimuli with wireless radiation. Safe exposure limits for wireless radiation, when examined in combination with other toxic environmental impacts, would have to be far lower than those derived for wireless radiation exposures alone.
The authors contend that most of the wireless radiation laboratory experiments performed to date are flawed or limited with respect to showing the full adverse impact of the wireless radiation that should be expected under real-life conditions. They conclude that in aggregate, for the high frequency (radiofrequency-RF) part of the spectrum, currently published reviews show that even RF radiation below the FCC guidelines can result in: carcinogenicity (brain tumors/glioma, breast cancer, acoustic neuromas, leukemia, parotid gland tumors), genotoxicity (DNA damage, DNA repair inhibition, chromatin structure), mutagenicity, teratogenicity, neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), neurobehavioral problems, autism, reproductive problems, pregnancy outcomes, excessive reactive oxygen species/oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis, blood-brain barrier disruption, pineal gland/melatonin production, sleep disturbance, headache, irritability, fatigue, concentration difficulties, depression, dizziness, tinnitus, burning and flushed skin, digestive disturbance, tremors, cardiac irregularities, adverse impacts on the neural, circulatory, immune, endocrine, and skeletal systems.
In summary, we already know that RF is a highly pervasive cause of disease. The upgrade to higher-energy 5G technology, will result in exacerbating this situation, causing a higher incidence of all of these adverse impacts to human and environmental health.
5G Technology and the COVID-19 Crisis
Some conspiracy theorists, notably including popular English sportscaster and professional conspiracy theorist David Icke, have suggested that the implementation of 5G RF technology may have caused mutation of a coronavirus that led to the current pandemic crisis. I want to reiterate at the outset two things that I’ve already pointed out in previous posts: Most conspiracy theories contain some elements of truth, and most conspiracy theorists make logical leaps that may or may not prove to be true. Let’s have a look at this one.
I have listened to a 2 hour and 33 minute interview of David Icke in which he explains how he sees the current COVID-19 crisis linked to 5G technology. It is quite elaborate and not illogical, if you are willing to buy the premise that there are covert evil entities working behind the scenes to control the world. But he makes a few logical leaps with no science that I know of the support them. A major one is the assumption that radio-frequency radiation might be used to cause a biological micro-organism to mutate, or that the RF radiation itself might cause COVID-19 symptoms. If either assumption were true, then you would also have to assume that someone has the technology to control the mutation in order to produce the desired outcome. The covert entity would also have to be able to control several governments and the world news media to create the situation we have today. If Mr. Icke’s theories are true, then we will have to concede that we have very little control over our own lives.
A few scientists have come forth to refute the conspiracy theories put forth by Mr. Icke and others, but they generally over-simplify the problem by just addressing one of the major gaps I mentioned, or they dismiss the theory entirely based on who the source is. They tend to say something like “This came from the nut-case who claims the world is run by an alien race of lizard people!” Or, if they want to stay away from unprofessional name calling, they might say: “There’s no mechanism by which 5G RF signals could cause viruses to mutate, or cause flu like symptoms in humans.” Statements like this are not refutations, because they are based on a fallacy common to many assertions by mainstream scientists. It is the egoistic belief that: “If I don’t know about something, then it doesn’t exist.”
Most mainstream scientists and technicians miss the real point of public concern, which stems from the fact that we’ve seen the whole world of Western Civilization, which most of us recognize as the “Free World”, shut down because of a flu-like illness that as much as 98% of us will never experience. We are told that this virus could kill millions of people world-wide, so we must take it seriously. But, as I pointed out in an earlier post, the death-rate attributed to the virus is being artificially inflated by including terminally-ill patients who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and also had other life-threatening illnesses from which they would have died with or without the coronavirus. Several things about the current crisis seem contrived. This causes people to fear that conspiracy theories such as Mr. Icke’s may actually be true. Scientists who make statements like those quoted above, simply don’t have the credibility of those who publish serious analyses of the issue, and such scientists will likely be dismissed as part of the problem.
This post has already been much longer than most, but because it is so long, I think I need to summarize it now and state some clear conclusions about the subjects treated, and give some suggestions about what, as concerned citizens of the world, we may be able do.
Summary, Conclusions and Suggestions
Our world is in turmoil today. But just a few short months ago, most of us seemed to have our lives under control, enjoying some measure of prosperity, happiness and peace of mind. Then, suddenly, almost overnight, it seems, everything changed. The world we had grown used to was shut down. Some of us were deprived of happiness, liberty and even life. Reports of the COVID-19 crisis, Government intervention and the implementation of 5G technology began to consume our lives, and conspiracy theories began to spring up like mushrooms! In this post, I have tried to make some sense of it all. You will have to decide for yourself to what extent I have succeeded.
Is the COVID-19 crisis real? A force of nature, a man-made accident or a diabolical plot by some shadowy global political entity to take over the world and rule our lives like the totalitarian despots of yesteryear? Trying to be as objective as I can, I think it may actually be a curious mixture of all three. So, if I am right, what, if anything, can we do about it?
Much like pivotal events in the past, I believe we have come again to a time that tries men’s souls (and women’s too, of course - I use the term “men” in the collective, inclusive, gender-neutral sense). It is time again, to take stock of your soul. Do you really believe there’s a Higher Power, a Cosmic Intelligence beyond human understanding, or not? If not, then you are truly lost, adrift in a meaningless universe of chaos, doomed for eventual death and destruction leading to oblivion, and it will soon be as if you never existed. If you really DO believe in the existence of a Higher Power, a Cosmic Intelligence beyond human understanding, a reality with meaning and purpose; whether you believe that the Christ Consciousness in Jesus of Nazareth resurrected his physical body, or that there are Saints who have been alive for centuries in remote areas of the planet, Saints who have transcended physical life and death, or that the way said to be the way is not the way, it is time to act as if you believe what you do believe. For those of us who do believe, here are some suggestions concerning what we can do:
Renew your connection with the Infinite in whatever way works for you. Pray, meditate, perform rituals, light candles, try to literally shake the spiritual world up with the intensity of your passion! You are a son or daughter of the Most High!
Shout about the Glory of God from the rooftops, let the Lord know that you are on the side of His Light, not hiding in the shadows of darkness! Use the megaphone of social media to do this.
Petition the politicians to implement your convictions, whether it is to desist from using health issues to control people, or to quit lining their pockets with taxpayers’ money.
Specifically, I urge you to write or call your elected representatives and ask them to stop the implementation of 5G technology until sufficient studies have been completed to insure public and environmental safety. And ask them to refrain from implementing draconian government controls that will be impossible to rescinded after the COVID-19 crisis is over.
In short, behave in a way that shows that you openly receive, return and radiate God’s Love. Love your neighbor as yourself, but resist all efforts to destroy your way of life. Look for new ways to get your message out. Don’t hide your light from the world. Stand up for what you believe!
If this sounds to you like a sermon, then that’s what it is, and my message has been heard.
