Sir, Are You and I One?

According to Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) …

“Consciousness does not mean attachment to polarity, at any level.”


Sathya Sai Baba asked one of his guests if he had a good night’s rest.

“No, Baba,” the man replied. “It was terrible. The mosquitoes kept me awake all night!”

“No mosquitoes. Only ONE mosquito,” Baba pronounced.

“Well, Baba, maybe there were only a few mosquitoes, but they kept me awake all night.”

“No FEW mosquitoes. ONE mosquito. And it was ME, at 4:00 o’clock, coming to wake you up for your meditation, but you went …”

Baba slapped his arm.


“Sir, are you and I one?” Sathya Sai Baba asked a scholar.

“Certainly, Baba,” he replied. “You and I are one.”

“No!” Baba shook his head. He pointed to the scholar and then to himself.

“I and I are one.”


British psychedelic artist Alan Aldrich (1938-2017) was a friend of Isaac Tigrett, co-founder of the Hard Rock Cafe and House of Blues.

Isaac Tigrett offered him a job as the creative director of the House of Blues … as long as he was “approved” by Sathya Sai Baba.

Alan Aldrich recounts the tale of their 20,000 mile round trip to Puttaparthi, India, in his autobiography (see below).


Alan Aldridge (The Man with Kaleidoscope Eyes: The Art of Alan Aldridge, 2009) wrote …

“An assistant told us, the three chosen ones, to squat, heads bowed, before an ornate chair — you could call it a throne. Sai Baba entered, smelling of tuberose and patchouli, and sat on it. He addressed the man to my right (I was in the middle). His voice was soft and gentle, girlish even, and he delivered a punishing lecture on the ethics of being on time — for business meetings, for family and friends, for everything — ending with the question, ‘What does time mean?’

“The man replied, ‘Only you know, Swami.’

“Sai Baba responded, ‘Watch means: watch your words, watch your actions, watch your thoughts, watch your character, watch your heart — that is what it means.’

“At this point, Sai Baba stirred the air with his right hand and a gold watch materialized. He gave it to the devotee and said, ‘Think of me always. Wear this watch and never be late again.’

“Sai Baba now turned his penetrating gaze to me. He held up his hand in front of my face and asked, ‘What is this?’

“It looked like a hand to me. ‘Hand, Swami.’

“He giggled. ‘Amateur!’

“The swami now moved his gaze to the man on my left. Damn, I’d blown it, he’d passed me over, no job [working for Isaac Tigrett] and no gold watch. It was a hand. What was I supposed to say. It was a hand, goddamn it. The devotee to the left got the same injunction on being prompt and got a gold watch.

“Sai Baba returned to me. He asked (referring to the watches), ‘Jealous?’

“He linked his dark eyes to mine. Holding up his hand, he asked, ‘What is this?’

“I looked at the hand. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing: set in the flat of the palm was an eye. Sai Baba giggled. I was at a loss for words. He got off the ‘throne’ and told me to follow him. We went into a small room and he closed the door. We faced each other and he spoke in a whisper.

“‘You worry about your son. You worry he will get into trouble with drugs. He will be fine when he finds his right path and that path is music. You will be proud of him.’ How he knew about my son remains a mystery.

“Sai Baba stepped closer to me and touched me on the heart. I felt (or did I imagine it?) a surge of energy slam through my body. For a second, I lost my footing but the swami grasped my wrist. Then he moved even closer.

“‘If you need me, just take one step towards me and I will take a thousand towards you.’

“His broad smile told me the meeting was over and I went outside and sat with Isaac. The sun was up, it was a beautiful day.”

    “How is it possible for someone’s car to relate to their physical body?” a skeptic asked.

    “Is a car not made out of the same atoms you are?” Adano Ley replied with his own question.

    The left front quadrant of a car relates to traumas with a male, and the right front quadrant to traumas with a female.

    It reverses at the rear — female traumas are on the left, and male traumas are on the right.

    Adano explained how our physical possessions often act as “shunts” to protect our physical body.

    According to him, it was “more practical” to break something you own than your bones.–e-books.php#The-Heart-Is-Not-a-Pump

    According to “Heartbeats in Movies,” Popular Science Monthly, May, 1929 …

    “As a rule, the smaller the heart in proportion to the body, the more efficient it is; an enlarged heart usually means softened muscles. [Paavo Johannes] Nurmi [1897-1973], the Finnish runner, owes his great endurance, physicians say, to the fact that his heart is only about half the normal size and beats only fifty times a minute. A slow-beating heart generally lasts longer than one which pulsates rapidly; and in general, the muscular condition or ‘tone’ of the whole body is reflected in the heart’s structure. Soft muscles mean a soft heart, which is why violent exercise often causes the death of those unused to exertion.”–e-books.php#The-Heart-Is-Not-a-Pump

    Lead — not gold — protects the heart.

    It’s Reverse Alchemy.

    Lead is the heaviest non-radioactive element.

    The heart is not a pump or a spiral.

    The heart is a TOROID.

    A toroid is a solenoid bent into a donut.–e-books.php

    Acidic people die from being too young.

    They tumorize.

    They often die of cancer and lack of oxygen.

    Alkaline people die from being too old.

    They ulcerate.

    They often die of shock and excess oxygen.

    Hyperventilation with respiratory alkalosis is a common symptom of septic shock.

    Almost all surgeries result in respiratory and/or metabolic alkalosis — one reason why many people with cancer die of the “cure.”–solar-timing-recipes.php

    154 revolutions around the Sun is the human genetic limitation. Whales live up to and past 200.

    Carbon dioxide, helium, argon, krypton, neon, and xenon are essential elements.

      Hello Atom! If whales eat a diet high in PUFAs but live far beyond what the alleged “genetic limitation” for the average human is considered to be, are the breathing patterns they adopted to live primarily under the water (and the resulting changes to their mammalian metabolism) one of the explanations for their longevity in the face of dietary challenges? What are some lessons we can learn from whales (breathing, diet, etc.) to increase our own longevity here up on the surface world?

        According to The Average Lifespan of Whales (whale facts dot org) …

        Beluga Whale — 40-60 years
        Blue Whale — 70-90 years
        Bowhead Whale — 100-200 years
        Fin Whale — 60-100 years
        Gray Whale — 50-70 years
        Humpback Whale — 40-100 years
        Minke Whale — 30-50 years
        Narwhal Whale — 40-60 years
        Sperm Whale — 60-80 years

        Lifespans are almost always less in captivity.

        The Bowhead Whale is obviously worth investigating because they can live beyond 200 — 211 in the most well-known case.

        Longevity research is not only lacking when it comes to whales, but seriously contaminated by omega-3 oil marketing speculation.

        Whales are definitely subject to lipofuscinosis (Yellow Fat Disease), so the Bowhead’s anti-aging secret probably has to do with the fact that it — unlike other whales — remains in the Arctic and doesn’t migrate.

        The cold Arctic environment and the ability to slow the heart down for deep diving — decreasing lipofuscin oxidation — are the most likely factors.

        The same goes for the deep-diving Greenland Shark, having an observed range from zero to 3,937 feet below the surface.

        Some Greenland Sharks may live as long as 500 years, yet thet’re also vulnerable to Yellow Fat Disease.

        A typical Greenland shark is an “opportunistic predator,” eating fish, seal, moose, polar bears, horses, etc.

        Ever New Joy,

        PS: Many of the world’s krill-eating whales are starving to death because human beings are stealing their food for money-spinning supplements.

        Some of these whales eat four-and-a-half TONS of krill per day.
