XBox's infra-red based "Kinect" technology is being used more and more by ghost hunters with some intriguing results. The Ghost Adventures crew has also captured some startling footage this way though I haven't found any of it on Youtube. The crews below caught some equivalent moving imagery:
I have become a devotee of the TV show "The Carbonaro Effect" - it constantly reminds me of how government and the financial system operate - sleight of hand and misdirection.
Video and still images of what appear to be high tech craft in the skies caught in faint, transient cloaking errors and often associated with the "mystery booms" being reported all over the place.
I believe man has been on this planet NOT for thousands of years, but for millions of years. Why it's been kept secret I don't know, hopefully sometime in the near future we will find out why.
I find it distressing my theory appears to provide grist for materialists who want to argue humans are programmable, biological robots.
Fortunately, I write about woo-woo which means my ideas will be dismissed as such.
I want to believe.
Kuru is an incurable degenerative neurological disorder where the brain disintegrates, causing shakes random outbursts, and death. Conventional wisdom suggests infectious proteins, or prions, are at work here.
I had a bolt from the blue writing up an upcoming contribution to TDG. Kuru is part of an immune response against the brain. The body is rejecting the brain because some proteins folded the wrong way, giving the illusion it's an "alien" transplant. I do not mean alien in the sense of greys or little green men, just something from another body.
There are genetic links to one's predisposition to hypersensitivity to substances.
Kuru is seen among the tribes of Papua New Guinea practicing mortuary cannibalism. They eat everything, from the flesh, to the deceased's poop wrapped in leaves, to the brains of deceased relatives. The practice puts them at risk for developing Kuru.
Planarians are flatworms notorious for their capacity to regenerate. Put a planarian in a blender, let it sit, all those tiny chopped up bits will become several planarians. Stranger still, teach a planarian to navigate a maze, chop it up, feed it to a planarian who doesn't know the maze, suddenly the maze virgin can puzzle out the twists and turns like a pro.
There are anecdotal reports of humans who receive organ transplants acquiring the characteristics of the donor. Someone disgusted by cheese receives a heart transplant suddenly develops a craving for brie and nothing will stop them. Sometimes personality traits are transferred.
What I am writing (wrote) about is regarding the transmission of allergies by bone marrow transplants. Previous reports have been anecdotal, but someone's definitively found a link. A guy received a bone marrow transplant from a sibling and acquired an allergy to kiwi fruit. There's scientific esoterica I'm muddling through as laity with some college education. Hopefully my post makes sense.
Allergies are an immune response to a substance. Organ rejection is the immune system's response to an alien object in a body.
Eating, and transplantation, is metabolizing organic material into one's body. Those broken down bits are assimilated, becoming part of the body and could precipitate change by proteins folding the wrong way, new stem cells creating alien cells horning in on established territory sparking gang warfare.
There might be something about the composition of the human brain which allows it to be transmissable by being eaten, playing on our atavistic planarian legacy. Tribal traditions have people eating the hearts of their enemies to gain their bravery.
It may be a social act of dominance, but there may be a connection and putative advantages of engaging in cannibalism.
By no means am I advocating cannibalism in any way, shape, or form.
There are quite a few tropes out there reinforcing this practice which have echoes in real life traditions.
This is a start. A hypothesis. Hoping to pursue it before coming out and suggesting Kuru is a person becoming allergic to their own brain.
It's been a long time since I've posted here. A lot has happened. I'm happily divorced that I'm very happy about, so now hopefully things can move on as Spring will be here soon. It's been a rough few years, I've been very sick. Hopefully, all that is behind me now though. I hope so, it's been difficult but beginning this year I'm hoping things will improve. I have a good outlook on life, so that will bring me through all the health issues I've had. I'm sure.
Well, looks like a snow storm is brewing but at least it won't be as bad as they were saying the other day. Probably, just an inch or two.
Well, I'll close for now hopefully I'll get back to writing in my journal more often. Have a good day and enjoy the weekend.
Be careful what you say, because it might come to pass.
Say good things to one another and think positive thoughts about yourself.
And don't apologize for anything, unless you're offering condolences for someone's death or if you caused someone's death.
At that distance from Earth, my mind became aware of a new dimension. Humans there—
with all their petty quarrels, cruelty and vicious occupancy of all their bits of territory—ceased
to exist. Gone were the insular and selfish ways of human beings on Earth, their fecundity
destroying the beauty of their planet like parasites swarming over her surface. The mother
planet harbored life on her surface and within her surface. She protected it against the
radiations of space and provided it with abundance, yet she shielded a viper within her
Alcoa Presents... The Magic Mushroom
"Four days after John F. Kennedy was inaugurated,
an Alcoa sponsored TV series introduced American
television watchers to the wonder of magic mushrooms.
Here's the very popular episode from the series
"One Step Beyond" which was pulled from syndication
and never shown on TV again."
