My Toe Stood Up

By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog

I asked Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) a question at the Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences.

“When I clench my right foot, my middle toe stays up. It won’t stay down with the rest of them.”

“Take off your shoes and socks and come to the front of the class,” he said.

I did, and Adano told me to raise my right arm.

I raised it straight forward, and he demanded, “Who told you to raise your arm THAT way?”

“What do you mean?” I was confused.

He moved my arm down to my side, and said, “Raise it again.”

I raised it straight forward again, and he repeated the same question, only louder: “Who told you to raise your arm THAT way?”

“What do you mean? How else should I raise it?” Now I was annoyed.

Adano grabbed my arm, raising it straight up three times instead of forward.

“NOW clench your foot.”

I did, and the renegade toe went down with the rest of them.

“Substituting an alpha brainwave for a beta one by using alternate body movements will heal an injury, but if you use alternate movements before the injury, it will never happen,” Adano explained.

Beta is like reading a word or sentence.

Alpha is like writing a word or sentence.

Theta is like erasing a word or sentence.

Delta is like closing the book.

Octavius Sturges (Chorea and Whooping-cough: Five Lectures, 1877) wrote …

“The habitual use of muscles in a particular combination soon renders certain of these subservient to the others, so that the activity of one calls up and compels the rest. These are laws of our nature which we could by no means have predicted and which no anatomical search could discover. We cannot conceive of mankind apart from such conditions, nor of the conditions themselves without perceiving their attendant consequences. Serviceable as they are in rendering intricate manual acts easy and spontaneous, and in permitting muscular movements without mental co-operation, they cannot render such service without at the same time crippling the freedom of the will and impairing the native variety and independence of muscular action. As in the beneficial working of the law we get mechanical dexterity and useful automatic movement, so in its pernicious working we get disfiguring muscular habits and restricted adaptability of muscles to new uses.”

    Mind Hacking in the Age of COVID —>

    Interpreting the injury *after* it happens instead of *before* it happens is the New Rule of Thumb.

    It’s a good thing minor injuries are portents of major ones!

    The further away you are from a doctor, the safer you are.

    Dr. Wilhelm Reich was far ahead of all those seminal retention jokers.

    I’ve always regarded ejaculation as a type of bowel movement and detox strategy.

    Hi Atom, using the same example what movement could I do to heal a frozen right shoulder?

      Adano Ley’s message to me was to move my arm any way but the habitual way.

      MIND HACKING is harder to do in the Age of COVID, so reflexology is the best bet.

      Working on the hips is the best place to start.

      If the injury was from hitting something or someone, the problem is in the right hip.

      If the injury was from something or someone hitting you, the problem is in the left hip.

      The latter is often harder to “fix.”

        There was no injury, I just woke up one morning and I couldn’t raise my right arm all the way up to the ceiling.

          Putting my right arm behind my back (handcuff position) is the hardest movement to do.

            I felt a really sore spot on my LEFT shin. There was no injury. Later the same day I bumped the exact spot on my coffee table, and it was really sore. What if I hadn’t known it was sore beforehand? I would have blamed the so-called injury. A few hours later I bumped it again, and it was really sore again. So I Recycled the MAN who was bugging me (who that was is lost down the memory hole). Recycle the WOMAN behind your “injury,” and you’re good to go. Otherwise, work those hips, yawn and stretch, go through the colors (black, gray, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, white) and hope for the best.

    Practice Social Distancing from Government Schooling.

    According to John Taylor Gatto …

    “Workforce itself is a term that should tell you much about the mind that governs modern society. According to official reports, only a small fraction of the population is capable of what you and I call mental life: creative thought, analytical thought, judgmental thought, a trio occupying the three highest positions on Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Just how small a fraction would shock you. According to experts, the bulk of the mob is hopelessly dumb, even dangerously so. Perhaps you’re a willing accomplice to this social coup which revived the English class system. Certainly you are if your own child has been rewarded with a ‘gifted and talented’ label by your local school. This is what Dewey means by ‘proper’ social order.”

    According to Ivan Illich …

    “I remember the man who complained about the weight of pencils: they were difficult to handle because they did not weigh as much as a shovel.”
