Before we get into today's newsletter, here is a link to join Alia Bland and Dr Guy Hatchard on Voices For Freedom tonight (Sunday 11 September) at 8 pm.
The theme for tonight is "Where to from here? How can we all thrive and avert a looming dystopia?"
Is anyone in authority going to change gear? On current evidence, possibly not.
Our future appears to include reduced longevity and reduced birth rates, along with generous doses of genetic vaccines which will only hurry along our journey back to 19th century health statistics.
The central role of governments post pandemic appears to be to make sure no one finds out what has gone on and what is still going on. The FDA has refused to release its vaccine safety analyses for public viewing, hiding behind legal arguments designed to circumvent freedom of information requests.
On the publishing front, a headline in online Medpage Today (distributed worldwide to doctors) misleadingly tumpeted “Unvaccinated Over 10 Times More Likely to Be Hospitalized During Omicron”. I read the study which the article was based on, published in JAMA Internal Medicine.
The study was funded by the CDC and the authors received grants from the pharmaceutical industry. It covered Covid hospitalisations in parts of the USA from January to April 2022. Predictably the content didn’t justify the screaming headline. Here is a quote from the study:
“Multivariate analysis found vaccination was not significantly associated with a reduced risk of severe disease (ie, ICU admission or death)”
In January the proportion of Delta infections was still high and the administration of boosters was relatively recent. Predictably, any relative protection offered by boosters wore off rapidly and very significantly from January on.
No doubt, as studies in other countries show, the subsequent four months up until today would find the effect of boosters sinking into negative territory, while the unmentionable and unprecedented rise in all-cause deaths would remain unreported.
In other words, mRNA vaccination undermines your health, but this didn’t stop Medpage Today advising us to ‘stay up to date with our vaccinations and boosters’—a mantra that has long since passed its sell-by date.
How Medicine Got Left Behind in a Dull Mechanistic Newtonian World
From your letters it seems many of you are asking, like me: How are we all going to thrive going ahead and avert a looming dystopia?
Official medical policy decisions affecting us are all taken by individuals somewhere. All decisions originate in the mind. Understanding how to shift the goal posts is going to require a giant leap in our understanding of consciousness—individual and collective.
It is hard to communicate the excitement I felt as an undergraduate physics major when I was introduced to Schroedinger’s cat. Essentially this involved a paradox that arose from Quantum Theory. When you look at something (or technically speaking when you ‘measure’ it) you alter it, but until then it exists in a virtual combination of all possible outcomes described by a wave function.
When our consciousness intervenes, it collapses the abstract wave function into a single definite event (if you want to look at a modern experimental verification of the key role of consciousness in quantum mechanical reality look here).
This paradox was resolved by describing the world as a wave/particle duality. Sometimes the world behaves as a wave in a limitless invisible ocean and sometimes as a set of billiard balls bouncing off each other on an infinite table. Or more correctly, the two worlds coexist continuously.
For Newton, the world was always a vast tangible almost clockwork machine obeying a set of fixed rules. In a Quantum world anything is possible, even if the more ordinary everyday mechanical outcomes are more likely to eventuate.
Particles or objects that can be seen and touched characterise the world around us, but at smaller time and distance scales subtle fields orchestrate the cosmic dance. Nowhere more so than in our physiology. Consciousness holds a special place in physics and it operates at the heart of physiology.
Consciousness is the most abstract of fields, yet it connects with the most mundane of bodily functions and the most sublime human emotions. As a physicist you cannot consider the coordinated complexity of human physiology without thinking of field effects.
Quantum field effects can be associated with the creation of coherent states such as superconductivity and superfluidity. This involves the joining of microscopic particles into a macroscopic quantum coherent state. Such states operate at everyday distance scales. Their almost magical effects such as frictionless flow are visible to the eye.
DNA is at the heart of every one of the 37 trillion human cells, yet each of us is recognisable as a single unique person. The whole person is more than a collection of cells. Our cells are orchestrated together, just as millions of atoms can be under the influence of a single coherent quantum field.
The connection between consciousness and physiology is mediated by our genetics. Interfere with genetics and you imperil the intimate connection between consciousness and matter, mind and body.
Health is a combination of abstract consciousness and physiological homeostasis or balance. No one could imagine that physiology is a set of billiard balls, yet modern medicine mostly regards it in that light—periodically throwing in pharmaceutical billiard balls as if they alone will restore health.
At the same time ignoring dire adverse effects—a list of adverse effects in very small print graced our newspapers yesterday next to a large print call to ask for Paxlovid (there were no benefits listed):
“Possible side effects include vomiting; diarrhea; headache; high blood pressure; aching muscle, muscle tenderness or weakness not due to exercise; changes in taste or a metallic taste in the mouth; severe allergic reaction, signs and/or symptoms of allergic reaction include rash, itch, development of hives, swelling of the face (or of the tongue, lips, eyes, throat), feeling breathless, light-headed or dizzy, feeling unwell, nausea and abdominal pain.”
Robust health primarily depends upon diet, exercise, fresh air, and happiness. It can be degraded by highly processed foods, indolence, pollution, fatigue, and stress. Consciousness guides us through every day and every stage of life. Taking care of our consciousness is the vital necessity of every person.
Every cultural and spiritual tradition places the ascent of consciousness at the heart and height of human achievement. Therefore when shock jock Michael Laws said on The Platform this week that my interest in meditation and natural health disqualified me from science, he was denying the validity of culture, religion, and morality.
He was denying the historic achievements of people like St Francis of Asisi, Mahatma Gandhi, Hildegard of Bingen, Leo Tolstoy, and countless others who have cast their light down through the ages to guide and protect our highest cultural, moral, and spiritual endeavours.
He was also ignoring the vast scientific literature which has discovered measurable value in quiet reflection and natural life. Such as greatly reduced incidence of cancers if you eat five portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day, or reduced anxiety and mental illness through meditation. My book Your DNA Diet discusses and references these at length.
Despite the fashion of scepticism and the idolatry of technology, our legacy of cultural and spiritual knowledge and the lessons of history are desperately needed now.
The Power of Truth and Self Discovery is Not Weak and Ineffectual as Some Would Have Us Believe
In 1990 I worked in Soviet Armenia for a year on an earthquake relief project and received a lesson in the power of meditation now and in history. My team taught over 35,000 people to meditate as part of a government sponsored programme to relieve the debilitating PTSD caused by a devastating earthquake in 1989 in which over 25,000 people died.
During my visit I was invited to visit the historic monastery of Khor Virap at the foot of snow capped Mt. Ararat. In the third century, St Grigor the illuminator was imprisoned in an underground cave for 13 years. He was eventually released and somehow cured the cruel pagan monarch of his mental illness. With the result that the nation converted to Christianity.
I climbed down a long vertical shaft in solid rock to visit St. Grigor’s tiny underground prison. Sitting there, my companion and I had an experience of deep quiet and inner light. Throughout Armenia today you can see caves cut into rocky cliffs that once harboured anchorites and christian mystics inspired by St. Grigor’s light. This sat easily in Armenia with a long tradition of meditation stretching back to ancient Vedic times.
I record this not with any intention to convert, but with a purpose to inspire the need for an understanding and experience of expanded consciousness. As consciousness lies at the centre of physics, it underpins our DNA which is constructed of particles and fields governed by the laws of physics.
As I have reported elsewhere, there is evidence that research in consciousness may offer a key to reset the integrity of our genetics.
Recovery from the pandemic can involve meditation, natural diet, physiological purification of toxins, doing what you enjoy, and collective cultural endeavours to restore the health of society. Denying their validity or utility amounts to a denial of the history of civilisation and the spirit of scientific endeavour.
Be brave, resilient, and silent no more.
