Personal Experimentation with oils

October 14, 2014

Reminds me of the various alcoholic experiments, marijuana, and tobacco experiments people once did on themselves. I expect that these ones I am using will have less negative side effects.

Methodical controlled breathing should extract a lot more oxygen from the air into the lower lungs, and thus the blood stream, so the aromatic delivery systems should be heightened via this method.

Experiment 1: Shows good signs of regeneration after one night, the Melaleuca Essential Oil
Melaleuca alternifolia. When reading various novels and fiction, I always thought herb lore was pretty good although the effects seemed magickal and non scientific. Now I get to test the essences from herbs personally, so it’s fun.

I estimate with other medicines, the kind of regeneration I saw in one night would have taken weeks if not months.

HFCS, sugar, diabetics, and human microbiome

October 3, 2014

http://neoneocon.com/2012/03/21/the-case-of-sugar-v-corn-syrup/

One commenter wrote something funny on the side of HFCS=natural sugar.

Ymar doesn’t know what he does not know.

BTW, Ymar, scientists in aggregate understand a tremendous amount about the human body. It is regrettable that Ymar has put on his nihilist, know-nothing hat. He is simply unable to comprehend Occam’s micro-lecture.

Occam is blessedly 100% right-again, as always-and always lucid, which I am not.-DC

Here comes a scientist to defend the flock. But such things are not my concern and were never going to propel human progress a single step forward. It’s simply tribal loyalty. Of what worth is that to me?-Ymar

Looks like something they didn’t know was the microbiome.

The thing about real science is that it doesn’t have blinders on like Global Warming cultists do. But there’s a lot of Doctor Class and award specialists like DC there that think they are privileged to better information and thinking than the rest of us. Turns out the opposite is true if anything else.

Chemically, they said processed and artificially made HFCS is the same as natural sugar or the molecular chain sucrose. That there was no difference, essentially, between 50/50 fructuse and sucrose, and pure sucrose. Essentially, natural sugars and fruit juices should have the same effect on the human body’s health as artificial sugars and juices. Yet the human body can tell the difference and doesn’t run on artificial junk as well, just as diesel engines don’t want to run on gasoline and gasoline engines don’t like diesel, although technically it should work for both. It’ll work but it’ll break down in time faster.

As someone that does real scientific experiments, I refused to make wild claims about microbiome being destroyed by HFCS back then. There wasn’t proof yet. Big difference between how doctors and scientists operate these days.

Nor are the new “studies” the new dogma of the land, they’re merely new data. Might not be fully accurate either. The only ones I am certain of are experimental data from experiments I conduct or analyze. I can know those aren’t contaminated to a high degree of accuracy. What the Ruling Class chooses to fund in terms of experiments? Can’t really trust those.

All three sugars – sucrose, glucsose, and fructose – are crystalline solids when pure.-Occam’s Razor

And that is also why a car engine runs the same on premium, diesel, and non leaded plus. Thus there’s no real difference. After all, they’re just the same liquid when pure. More or less, right.

Actually there is a significant difference. The human body is a lot more complicated and is a more accurate reader of reality than the human eye. Or mind. Or a car engine for that matter.

Things are not as simple as they seem on the surface. Not with politics. Not with petrol. Not with bio-chemistry.</b>

What I wrote back then, applies the same, for it is the same basic perspective I view many things.

Immune System fortification in the West

October 3, 2014

http://survivalist.com/survival-medical-system/smsreplay/

Time to do some personal experimentation. It’s almost like martial arts and all that ancient Chinese medicine.

Well, whether it works or not, it should be fun, and it was recommended from some credible sources of mine.

Whether I pay the full system or not, that’s a different issue. Some light experimentation might be in order as an introduction.

http://survivethecomingcollapse.com/4005/ebola-first-us-diagnosis-of-ebola-amidst-growing-concern/

This Ebola overview data is pretty accurate, from what I’ve pieced out from various first tier blogs. It’s a lot more accurate than waiting for the government Authorities to tell you what’s going on, at least.

Hard work will never betray you even against Ebola

That’s a lot of precautions. Being in full suits does make people careless, because they don it on and off and stop thinking about what they are using it for.

When you have to make your own system, you have to pay a lot more attention, as well as apply more creative and independent thinking. Independent thinking, get it, something the West has a short supply of.

Ebola and zombies

September 27, 2014

I did say that according to script, zombies should be showing up soon after I heard about the Ebola contamination in Africa.

Fantasy in Science and Science in Fantasy

August 17, 2014

http://www.baen.com/fantasy_needs_science.asp

Here’s the email I sent to Roberts:

This is a response to Even Fantasy Needs a Little Science by Tedd Roberts – Baen Books after reading it.

It reminded me of the recent work Brandon Sanderson has done in his fantasy, which utilizes strictly logical rules slowly exposed over the book, combining some mystery elements as one can figure out plot twists by collating and analyzing the rules themselves.

Also Japan has long combined science fiction with fantasy, such that there are very old and recognized stereotypes to Japanese RPG settings and backgrounds. Not only is there an Atlantis type advanced civilization that died out, but the residents are advancing out of the dark age with technological (re)progress. This ties into the work being done on Pillars of Eternity and Torment (1&2), given that regular fantasy settings has been done to death and it needs to be reformed if not recycled. PoE postulates a land of fantasy that is advancing into the colonial and industrial revolution, via the use of soul crafting to power technological applications. What people did with electricity in our time line, they do with the power of souls or magic as you will. This goes into the high tech = magic line of reasoning.

On another note, this is Robert’s concept applied to zombie apocs.

 

I believe people are bored of extremely stable social systems. They want change or to be more specific, they want to improve their social status. While others wish to improve their skills, their family, or their power levels.

Distributed networking

August 14, 2014

This is a pretty strange occurrence. I had heard of BitCoin before, of course, but I hadn’t quite connected all the dots yet.

When I was looking around for a new Geforce or Radeon graphics external (2 slots isn’t really a card any more), I picked up some fun reading.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-270-review-benchmarks,3669.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

http://bitcoinminer.com/

That’s quite a bit of reading. The executive summary would be thus. Like crowd sourced produced games such as Minecraft (a java game about mining and building), digital currencies rely on computing power (Minecraft was produced using more of a conventional funding scheme from distributed users via a centralized interface and didn’t rely on distributed computing) and distributed networks (the basis of the internet itself) to guarantee security and authenticity. Although like various other simulated universes, there are ways to crack/hack/steal from the stupid to the smart. This is compared to the United States Regime that uses taxes to bank roll evil by sharing the load across 330 million people, so few people ever notice it. This is done via centralized fiat and digital currency, as well as various other things in the Leftist alliance. A simulated free economy, or just a real free economy, tends to burden the dumb and reckless risk takers with most of the losses.

AI (artificial intelligence) will most likely come from distributed networks in the future, not supercomputer cooled laboratories funded by centralized authorities. If one ever did come out of that, it would be psychotic and bent on enslaving humanity, essentially due to how it was created or raised. Although it would be more accurate to call the products of random luck HI or hyper aware intelligences, happenstance intelligence even.

Strangely enough, it was reading about all the money laundering and black market schemes and thefts that convinced me that this was real and wasn’t just an internet fad (like Obamacare). Generally whenever a new frontier is tapped, all the thugs, crooks, and risk taking gamblers get there first. And they got there fast.

Oh, here’s the source time history for the various Geforce and Radeon generations.

I have also heard of the game engine Unity, that uses a similar distributed network of suppliers and consumers.
