Well, you’re a popular person
And I’m popular too

But you ain’t popular with me
And I ain’t popular with you

That’s the way that it is
That’s the way that it is

Honey, that’s how it is
So why be blue?             (x2)

Art Photo Series: Airplane in Late Afternoon, Decaptych . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 31 January 2018; revised on 2 February 2018

Dear Ones,

In the below decaptych, there was not really an accident; this is just an interesting glitch in the video display, indicating to me the whimical nature of reality. A decaptych is a polyptych comprising 10 images.

Descent into Matter and Ascent to the Fifth Dimension . referrals by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 31 January 2018

Dear Ones,

I have found two images depicting the opposite processes of descent into matter and ascent to the fifth dimension. Here they are …

Image: “Touching the Mirror,” by Richard Baxter … http://www.richardbaxterartist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/003_lge-960×543.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Man in water in sky, diving into air on earth … COMMENT: This reversed image reminds me of the descent into matter, or physical form, from the higher dimensions through incarnation.

ASCENT TO THE FIFTH DIMENSION

Image: “L’Ascension,” by Catherine Andrews … http://www.sagesse.ca/francais/cms/uploads_img/img_4592_1.jpg … DESCRIPTION: Christ ascending into the air. He is surrounded by rosy and turquoise, patterned light. Disciples are on the ground, looking up … COMMENT: This beautiful artwork reminds me of the Ascension process now taking place on Earth.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Community Health: Update on the HIV / AIDS Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 31 January 2018 

  • HIV AND AIDS SOCIAL STIGMA
  • WIDESPREAD NATURE OF HIV INFECTION
    • Annual Medicare Tests Available
    • Decrease in Criminal Penalty for Intentional HIV Transmission in California
    • Surge in HIV Home Testing After Charlie Sheen Show in 2017

Dear Ones,

HIV AND AIDS SOCIAL STIGMA

A great deal has been written about HIV and AIDS social stigma, and the degree of fear that the thought of testing and possible diagnosis engenders. Exposure to the HIV virus separates people from the mainstream of society, because of the considerable social stigma around the disease.

WIDESPREAD NATURE OF HIV INFECTION

Annual Medicare Tests Available

Yet Medicare now offer annual HIV tests … which, to me, indicates the widespread nature of this infection today …

Link: “HIV Screenings,” in Medicare Coverage … https://www.medicareinteractive.org/get-answers/medicare-covered-services/preventive-care-services/medicare-coverage-of-hiv-screenings ..

Decrease in Criminal Penalty for Intentional HIV Transmission in California

The fact that intentional exposure of another person to HIV infection has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor also indicates the widespread nature of the infection …

Link: “Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California,”  by Eli Rosenberg, 10 October 2017 … https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/10/09/knowingly-infecting-others-with-hiv-is-no-longer-a-felony-in-california-advocates-say-it-targeted-sex-workers/ ..

California is in advance of other United States and of other countries in this; in many places, intentional transmission of HIV is a serious criminal offense …

Link: “Criminal Transmission of HIV,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_transmission_of_HIV ..

Surge in HIV Home Testing After Charlie Sheen Show in 2017

Another indicator is the surge in purchase of the Oraquick saliva test for exposure to the HIV virus, that took place after a Charlie Sheen sow in May of 2017 …

Link: “Surge in Home Testing Sales Followed Charlie Sheen’s HIV Disclosure,” by Rachael Rettner Live Science, 22 May 2017 … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/surge-in-home-testing-sales-followed-charlie-sheens-hiv-disclosure_us_5923681ce4b03b485cb4467e ..

WIDESPREAD AVAILABILITY OF HIV HOME TEST KITS

I note that the Oraquick saliva test for HIV exposure is available near the pharmacy window of the Rite-Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and Target stores now, for about $40. I see that a three-pack is available through Amazon.com. That, to me, is another indicator of the widespread nature of the pandemic in the world today.

I have read that the Oraquick test, though very available, speedy, and painless, is only about 90% effective in diagnosing HIV infection.

There is a more effective test … I think I read that it is 98% effective in diagnosing HIV infection … called the Home Access HIV-1 Test, currently available from Walgreens and Amazon,  This test involves pricking the finger for a blood test; the test is sent to a lab for diagnosis. This test is more pricey (both to buy, and because of the cost of the lab test), a little less available, and more effective than the Oraquick test … 98% or more in accuracy, compared to about 90% accuracy, as I understand it.

Link: “Should I Get Tested for HIV?” in Planned Parenthood …   https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/stds-hiv-safer-sex/hiv-aids/should-i-get-tested-hiv ..

NEW PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS TO PREVENT HIV INFECTION

There’s a new method of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis … PrEP … that has apparently proven effective in reducing HIV infection … a daily pill that is 90% effective in this regard.

Link: “What Is PrEP,” by Planned Parenthood … https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/stds-hiv-safer-sex/hiv-aids/prep ..

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH: CAN HIV PROGNOSIS BE COMPARE TO THAT FOR OTHER VIRUSES?

From the field of alternative health lore, there is a thought that HIV exposure may not be a fatal diagnosis, but rather, more like the common cold, or like other viral STDs, in that it may cause higher blood titers (technically, a diagnosis of AIDS) when the immune system is low, and that the titers may return to normal as the immune system returns to normal strength.

A naturopathic doctor, or your local health food store, may be of help in bolstering the immune system, in the event you have been exposed to the HIV virus, and suffer an outbreak of symptoms previously termed AIDS.

OCCULT LORE: EFFECT OF SOCIAL STIGMA ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

From an interdimensional point of view, it seems to me likely that the ‘death-sentence’ nature of HIV exposure in the 1980s in America, had to do with the very severe social stigma regarding alternative lifestyles and drug use in those days. In other words, the opinions of the masses of people in the United States, in a way, doomed those exposed to HIV in the 1980s. An understanding of effect of social mores on the immune system depends on understanding of the nature and potency of thought forms. This is occult lore not widely know as yet. The best reference I’ve found so far, regarding this, is …

The solution to this aspect of the severity of the HIV pandemic has to do with public education regarding tolerance of diversity, and development of a compassionate attitude toward our fellow human beings.

I Am of the Stars

A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Lyrics
31 January 2018

 

Every day, in the late afternoon
even in the winter
in Southern California

It’s just like this

The red gold of the setting sun
Striking fire
to the sandstone cliffs

like a golden lute meeting
the deft hands
of an angel

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
