The Ram That Am With Every Lamb
A “goat gland” was 1920’s Hollywood jargon for sound added to a silent film.
Where did the term originate?
Hollywood actors with “male trouble” received goat gland transplants from Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, an alleged …
“M.D.. Ph.D., M.C., LL.D., D.P.H., Sc.D., Lieutenant, U.S. Naval Reserves, member, National Geographic Society.”
With credentials like these, who could resist getting testicles or ovaries from a young Toggenburg goat?
Dr. Brinkley claimed to turn men into “the ram that am with every lamb.”
Sidney B. Flower (The Goat-Gland Transplantation, 1921) wrote …
“If, after learning what Dr. Brinkley has learned by laborious experiments, continued for years, they [mainstream medical doctors] find that their conclusions differ from his, they will at least have earned the right to speak. But it is unreasonable to suppose, in that event, that their conclusions would in any way or degree differ from Dr. Brinkley’s conclusion that, in brief, the implanting of the glands of the young goat into men and women is an actual triumph of modern surgery and medical skill, which has resulted, in hundreds of cases, clearly recorded, and filed for reference, in rejuvenating both men and women; removing impotence from old men; curing arterio-sclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, in every case treated; curing five cases of Dementia Praecox out of a total of five cases treated; curing six cases of Locomotor Ataxia out of six cases treated; curing two cases of Paralysis Agitans out of two cases treated; restoring normal conditions in one hundred cases of Psychopathia Sexualis; bringing about the parenthood of barren women and impotent men not yet past middle-age; restoring the function of menstruation or regular periodicity to women who have passed through the change of life; in a word, making good in the cure of so-called incurables, and doing something that was never done before, to our knowledge, in the history of the earth.”
According to the same source …
“It is a fact beyond all gainsaying that Dr. Brinkley’s operation has in truth cheated old age of its toll in very many cases of both sexes, and the improvement, or rejuvenation, affects both the minds and bodies of those treated by this method; and this rejuvenation is lasting to the extent of the doctor’s observation.”
According to the same source …
“When the male fowl is sterilized in order that he may grow big and fat for the market later he loses his cock’s plumage and gains in weight. In the psychic domain the changes are still more marked. The capon is a coward, shunning the contest for supremacy. He does not forage for the hens, inviting them to feed upon what he has found, but looks after himself first and last. He is lazy, sluggish, and selfish.
“The stallion is a proud and beautiful animal, and Job’s description of the war-horse ‘He paweth in the valley and rejoiceth in his strength, He goeth on to meet the armed men!’ with its context, is still the best word-painting we have of the majesty of the horse in full possession of his sexual powers. The gelding is tractable and useful, and the absence of the fiery impatience of the stallion fits the gelding for man’s use.
“When men are castrated, as in the East, in youth, where they are prized as custodians of the harem, they are fat, usually large of frame, but short-lived. The growth of hair on the head is often scant; on the face and body it is altogether missing. The voice is high, partaking of a treble quality. When through surgical operation or accident it happens that a man is deprived of the testicular glands in youth, early manhood, or even middle-age, the same changes follow as in the case of the eunuch, the hair on face and body disappears, the voice changes from deep to high tone, and mentally the man develops inertia and cowardice. Physically, he puts on fat almost immediately.
“When women have, for any reason, had their ovaries removed by surgical operation, marked changes follow, which vary much in detail, but carry certain general similarities. The face and body age rapidly in appearance, and there is a slowing up of functions of the organs, with a tendency to masculinity in tastes, behavior, feelings.”
There is a downside to Dr. Brinkley’s transplantation …
Both sides are ligated, “making the emission of the semen impossible.”
According to the same source …
“The life-force, then, having no other outlet, can do nothing else but reinvigorate the entire system by pouring its precious fluids into the blood.”
This, of course, is NONSENSE.
It was the kind of nonsense that was also widespread among the medical mainstream over a hundred years ago.
It’s the kind of nonsense that’s widespread among today’s holistic health and New Age yoga communities.
In case you wondered about men wanting to have children, the ligation was temporarily removed after a minimum of one year.

Adano Ley and I shopped at Weingarten’s, a supermarket within blocks of “Swami Nitty-Gritty’s Karmic Klinic” in Houston.
Adano handed me a plastic protective cap from a bottle of maple syrup, and told me to save it to measure out just enough tequila “for my stomach’s sake.”
He obviously knew I’d been sneaking more than the required dose into my evening glass of pineapple juice and aloe vera.
“Should I just walk out of the store with this?” I asked, referring to the plastic cap.
“Put it in the shopping cart, and let’s see what happens,” Adano replied.
I watched the plastic cap closely as the cashier was ringing us out, and wondered how it could possibly exit the store due to another shopping cart blocking our cart’s way.
Suddenly, the woman behind the counter slammed the cart shut, and the cap was propelled through the air.
It bounced off the counter, and landed smack-dab in my outstretched hand.
I was so dumbfounded I just held it and stared at it.
The cashier commanded, “Give it to me,” and I reflexively gave it up.
“I’ll throw it away for you,” she continued, and I replied, “Thank you.”
“Why didn’t you accept your good fortune, brother?” Adano asked as we left the store.
He explained my second thoughts and my lack of acceptance had interfered with the magnetism of my desire generated from eating on time.
“Do you mean that Solar [Nutrition] will supply the opportunities, but we have to supply the acceptance?” I mused.
“No,” he replied. “Solar will eventually give you the acceptance too.”
As we loaded the groceries into his van, Adano related the story of the Saint who had moved an entire mountain.

Pink indicates betrayal in friendship or love.
Pink and orange together indicate sexual betrayal.
Pink, like red, is a “color of change.”
Swami Nitty-Gritty said, “Aquarian pink throws rocks in your ruts.”
Bubblegum pink, Pepto Bismol pink, and Baker-Miller pink are other names for this color of pink.

We need to knock down all public schools and colleges with a wrecking ball and free up the land for higher purposes.
Compulsory schooling was created by Big Government to brainwash its worker-bees.
The super-hackers large and in charge of Silicon Valley were doing their techno-thing before they even had peach-fuzz on their faces.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of 19 years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right.”
No generation has the right to bind the next generation to its laws, according to him.

Re: When you are in that state of straining, panic as you call it, it does seem that performance increases.
Panic can go either way — “Break On Through to the Other Side” in this world or the next (as in the case of Jim Morrison of The Doors).
Interesting article. Thanks!
