According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“We sell our cells short.”


Spencer Timothy Hall (Mesmeric Experiences, 1845) wrote …

“Margaret Walsh, daughter of Mrs. Maria Walsh, Castle-street, Carlisle, had been partially deaf from the age of two to that of fifteen years. I only mesmerised her in public, and after a few [mesmeric] operations she declared herself quite well.

“One or two other cases of deafness I shall allude to, not that they were cured, but because of the interesting phenomena they presented: —

“The first is that of a fine, intelligent young gentleman, aged nineteen, of a highly respectable family in Nottinghamshire. He was totally deaf and mute from infancy, not being able to hear a gun fired at a few paces distance. By placing my thumbs and his in juxta-position, and looking him intently in the face, I one day threw him into a deep mesmeric trance; but however deaf he might be when awake, he could hear distinctly enough when mesmerised; since, on the introduction of a musical box, he beat accurate time to its tunes with his fingers, and seemed highly pleased with his newly-found power. Upon this we had him removed to a room in which there was no pianoforte, to the notes of which he danced and waved his body in the most correct time possible; and finding his way at last to the intrument, took hold of and embraced it with very delight. He also drew several sketches better than he could have done in so short a time had he been awake. Whilst he was standing, I touched his head in the region of Veneration, when he slowly bowed his knees and raised his hands. Then I touched his eyelids with a view to excite Language, upon which he repeated the Lord’s Prayer with his fingers in the signs by which the dumb are accustomed to converse. This was to me a most touching sight, especially as his parents and sisters were all standing by with tears — but not tears of sorrow — streaming down their cheeks. What, however, struck us as most curious in this case was, that when I endeavoured to excite his organ of Tune, he went immediately to the piano and began to strike the keys as though he would have played over again the air to which he had just been dancing. When awoke he did not believe the sketches he had drawn were his own; and when informed of all he had done he was still more sceptical, until convinced by his father’s very solemn assurance of the facts. I have yet a hope that this young gentleman may be made to hear as well when awake as when in the trance.

“The other case is that of a young woman, Rachel Monks (living at 33, Trinity-buildings, Carlisle), who had been totally deaf nearly seventeen years. I mesmerised her on the 9th of August, 1844, and in the course of that day she heard the whistle of a locomotive engine at the distance of a furlong, and also heard her sister calling to her in a moderately loud voice. At night I mesmerised her again, and afterwards she heard a violin played at some distance behind her. Next morning she heard every knock at the door of my lodgings, although she sat in a room thirteen yards distant from it, and seemed highly delighted. Being compelled to leave the city immediately afterwards, I gave instructions to her friends to continue the process, but am not at present aware with what result. The fact that the sense cold be appealed to in any degree in cases apparently so hopeless, is very important to the humane inquirer.”

    Ted Friend (“The God Pill: Silicon Valley’s quest for eternal life,” The New Yorker, Apr. 3, 2017) wrote …

    “Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells and their mitochondria, which provide energy; some in Hollywood call it ‘the God Molecule.’ But taken in excess it can muffle a number of bodily repair mechanisms, leading to liver and kidney problems or even the rapid and potentially fatal sloughing of your skin. [Liz] Blackburn [who won a Nobel Prize for her work in genetics] gently suggested that a varied, healthy diet was best, and that no single molecule was the answer to the puzzle of aging.”

    Hi Atom,
    I am having a digital panoramic x-ray in a day or so. How to minimize the radiation effects ?
    I remember: soft corn tacos (before ?), ginseng, vit c, miso, acid-ash foods (after?)
    I just can’t remember are the above before or after the x-ray ?

      A week before *and* a week after is ideal.

      Most important is lots of rest and an absolute minimum of stress.

      Hibernating animals are virtually immune to ionizing radiation.

      Watch comedies, do things you love, and yawn and stretch as much as possible.

      Usually, the more updated the X-ray technology, the less radiation.
