SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would mention something about growing older, and how it is like being a young child again. Of course, everybody knows that they call older age a ‘second childhood’.  But as far as the School of Theosophy teachings are concerned, we could think of the different types of a human being; specifically, the Lower Mind (or ‘Lower Mental Body’) and the Higher Mind (or ‘Higher Mental Body’).

As you may know from my writings, the Lower Mind has to do with the gut brain, and the Martian bacterial colonists of the human colon, that I have mentioned in other blogs. The Higher Mind is the brain’s mind, and the one that we use … for better or for worse … during most of our adult life.

If you think about how a child is, and how we treat a child, a child does not have rational ability, or analytical ability, to speak of. And the same is true of an older senior citizen. Both are using their gut brain, otherwise known as their Lower Mental Body, or their Lower Mind.

The way of thinking of the gut brain has to do with the microbes in the gut. An older senior citizen, like a very young child, is capable of great extremes of emotion: very great anger … ‘temper tantrum’ stuff … or very great joy; happiness in the moment, in the Eternal Now. In this regard, an older senior citizen is capable of Awareness … the Soul’s Awareness in the Now.

In today’s senior care facilities, the wonderful qualities of the senior citizens’ mental approach are overlooked, and in fact, even amongst kin … brothers, sisters, and children … the way of thinking of the older senior citizen is often criticized and spoken of negatively. And so, the senior citizen can become very sad because of that.

My suggestion is that we look at the senior citizens as if they were young children again, and treat them with that same loving kindness with which we treat our children. I think that will be closer to the truth of the matter; for, even if a senior citizen has what we term Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, they are capable of interacting with us on a level of childlike innocence that we were heretofore unable to experience with them.

So that is something to look at: Let us treat our older senior citizens in the same loving way that we treat our very young children.

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a health technique called the ‘stomach slap’. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Stomach Slap for Positive Ki

I have a new technique for you, called the ‘Stomach Slap’. It is a health technique. You must not do it too strongly; just in a pleasant kind of way. And not for too long; just for three or five gentle slaps alternately on each side of the abdomen. And the benefits of this technique are …

  • It gets the attention of your Martians, who live in your colon, your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and
  • It breaks the rhythm of entrainment to the unconscious thought cloud of the world … which sets up a rhythmic electromagnetic (EMF) ‘drumbeat’ in the colon especially during the full moon, sometimes the new moon, and Friday and Saturday night in the cities of Earth.
  • In addition, it brings up vital force, or ki, or chi, or prana, so that your energy field is more able to create a strong barrier of energy to protect you from negative thoughts and negative astral beings.

It is a very simple technique; it goes like this [slaps sides of abdomen gently, three times each side] …

I Am I, I Am I, I Am That Am
Kriya by Alice B. Clagett
14 June 2019

I Am I.
I Am I.
I Am That Am.

I used these hand gestures while speaking this chant, while standing …

  • Right arm at side; left hand in fist, taps chest lightly at level of heart when saying the words in single quotation marks: ‘I’ Am I, ‘I’ Am I, ‘I’ ‘Am’ That Am.
  • Right arm at side; left arm extended to front, palm down, fingers extended forward, when saying the italicized words: I Am ‘I’, I Am ‘I’, I Am That Am.
  • Right arm at side; left arm extended to front, palm up, fingertips forward, when saying the final, italicized words: I Am I, I Am I, I Am That ‘Am’.

I am left-handed, so it is natural for me to gesture with my left hand; those who are right-handed may prefer to perform these gestures with their right hand.

Photos of these gestures are below.

Maori Warrior Dance of New Zealand

The feeling of this technique is a little like the Maori Warrior Dance from New Zealand, only less strenuous to perform …

Do Geostorms Cause Sensations of Pain and Visual Hallucinations in Human Beings? . by Alice B. Clagett

  • FOR MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

This blog is mainly excerpted from an earlier blog … Link: “Geomagnetic Crack and Weekend Noospheric Unrest,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 18 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-bWaso as to highlight the thoughts proposed in the second half of the earlier blog. This is the question under scrutiny herein …

I would like to pose the question: Does turmoil in Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere due to severe geostorms cause increased sensations of pain and visual hallucinations in human beings?

ELECTRICITY AND THE HUMAN NERVOUS SYSTEM

As you may know, the nervous systems of human beings have electric and magnetic properties. Nervous system messages are communicated via electricity within the body …

Link: “How the Body Uses Electricity: Electricity is everywhere, even in the human body. Our cells are specialized to conduct electrical currents. Electricity is required for the nervous system to send signals throughout the body and to the brain, making it possible for us to move, think and feel.,” by Amber Plante, in Graduate Student Association, at University of Maryland Graduate School … https://www.graduate.umaryland.edu/gsa/gazette/February-2016/How-the-human-body-uses-electricity/ ..

STATIC AND DYNAMIC MAGNETISM AND DAMPENING OR EXCITATION OF NERVE MESSAGES

From what I can tell, a static magnetic field may damp down nervous system signals …

Static Magnetic Fields and Pain Dampening. A nerve dampening effect putatively exerted by strong static magnetic fields may account for alternative medical claims that magnetic bracelets and anklets damp down arthritic pain (as pain is sensed through nerve impulses) …

Link: “The Effect of Magnetism on the Nervous System,” in “Magnetic Therapy Bracelets” … http://www.magnetic-therapy-bracelets.com/effect-of-magnetism-on-nervous-system.html ..

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health Care at the National Institutes of Health, has, as yet, insufficient evidence for the widely held popular belief that magnets reduce osteoarthritic pain, but it has found that electromagnetic mats can do so, to some extent. It has also found them effective in the treatment of migraines …

Link: “Magnets for Pain,” by National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health Care, NIH … https://nccih.nih.gov/Health/magnets-for-pain ..

Static Magnetic Fields and Dampening of the Striate Cortex … the Visual Impulse. A research article has been done that shows strong static magnetic fields … 1200-G … make the striate cortex … the visual impulse … of cats less excitable …

Link: “Magnetic Field Influence on Central Nervous System Function,” by AD Rosen and J. Lubowsky, in “Experimental Neurology,” 1987 Mar;95(3):679-87. Abstract … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3817086 ..

Dynamic Magnetic Fields and Proposed Visual Hallucination Effect. Conversely, it seems to me possible that dynamic magnetic fields might result in visual hallucinations, due to interference with smooth pursuit eye movements …

LInk: “Striate Cortex” … https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/striate-cortex … Search the term: smooth pursuit

Link: “Smooth Pursuit,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smooth_pursuit ..

So then, broadly speaking, I gather that the electric force facilitates nervous system messages; that static electromagnetic fields have a pain-dampening effect, and perhaps also a nervous system message-dampening effect; and by extension, that dynamic electromagnetic fields might have nervous system message-jangling effects resulting in visual field disturbances such as  hallucinations.

MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY IN EARTH’S MAGNETOSPHERE AND IONOSPHERE

Earth’s magnetosphere has magnetic properties, and the ionosphere beneath it has electric and dynamic magnetic properties. According to Wikipedia …

“The magnetosphere is the region above the ionosphere that is defined by the extent of the Earth’s magnetic field in space. It extends several tens of thousands of kilometers into space, protecting the Earth from the charged particles of the solar wind and cosmic rays that would otherwise strip away the upper atmosphere, including the ozone layer that protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation.

“Electric currents induced in the ionosphere generate magnetic fields (ionospheric dynamo region). Such a field is always generated near where the atmosphere is closest to the Sun, causing daily alterations that can deflect surface magnetic fields by as much as one degree.” from Link: “Earth’s Magnetic Field,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_magnetic_field ..

Then there is the question of the effect of geomagnetic storms upon Earth’s magnetosphere. According to Wikipedia …

“The varying conditions in the magnetosphere, known as space weather, are largely driven by solar activity. If the solar wind is weak, the magnetosphere expands; while if it is strong, it compresses the magnetosphere and more of it gets in. Periods of particularly intense activity, called geomagnetic storms, can occur when a coronal mass ejection erupts above the Sun and sends a shock wave through the Solar System. Such a wave can take just two days to reach the Earth. Geomagnetic storms can cause a lot of disruption; the “Halloween” storm of 2003 damaged more than a third of NASA’s satellites. The largest documented storm occurred in 1859. It induced currents strong enough to short out telegraph lines, and aurorae were reported as far south as Hawaii.” from Link: “Earth’s Magnetic Field,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_magnetic_field ..

WE ARE EARTH’S CHILDREN: OUR NERVOUS SYSTEMS DANCE TO HER TUNE

We humankind are Earth’s children. Our nervous systems dance to the tune of her magnetosphere and ionosphere. When the latter are dynamically in motion, then so are our own nervous systems, which depend upon the energies of magnetism and electricity.

It is clear from this image of the 16 March 2019 equinox crack, that geostorms make the magnetosphere and the ionosphere more chaotically dynamic … less static …

Image: “Post Apocalypse, Maybe?” by Markus Varik, 16 March 2019, Tromso, Norway …   http://0e33611cb8e6da737d5c-e13b5a910e105e07f9070866adaae10b.r15.cf1.rackcdn.com/Markus-Varik-Greenlander.no-3707_1552786701_lg.jpg ..

During geostorms, I feel, we can anticipate more nervous system excitability (as evidenced by findings in the “Experimental Neurology” article referenced above).

Then, because the ionosphere and the magnetosphere will become less static … more dynamic … during geostorms, we can anticipate more feelings of physical pain … and possibly also emotional pain … during those Solar Events.

If the pain dampening response to static electromagnetic mats alluded to by the NIH webpage might infer a wider nervous system dampening response, then the non-static nature of geostorms might support temporary excitement of the nervous system, including, possibly, temporary excitement of clair perception. In addition, striate cortex excitation under geostorm conditions might give rise to visual hallucinations, due to impairment of smooth pursuit eye movements.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding the religious practice of mortification of the flesh, including self-flagellation, that some Christian denominations retain as a historical tradition. In noospheric tenor, these practices tie into the denser energy streams of sadomasochistic sexual practices and snuff sex that have, of late, ransacked the noosphere of Los Angeles, especially on the weekends.

Aside from the link-in with historic practices of fleshly mortification why is it that this relatively rare nuance of sexual behavior is such a standout in the Los Angeles noosphere of late? For more, I turned to this publication …

Link: “The Psychology of Sadomasochism: An Attempt to Explain Sadism and Masochism,” by Neil Burton, M.D., posted 17 August 2014, in Psychology Today … https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201408/the-psychology-sadomasochism ..

From that I learned that many seemingly innocuous forms of behavior, such as tickling, infantilizing, and love-biting … and perhaps, I would add, taunting and bullying, as are oft found online these days … play into the darker, denser energy streams of the relatively recherché world of sadomasochism. Thus we are all, willy-nilly, for the most part unwittingly, involved in the clearing of these dense energy strands from the Los Angeles noosphere at present.

My appeal today is to those who are consciously able to choose whether they will add to these denser noospheric energies of sadomasochism. I make this appeal because, as an intuitive person, I find these energies very difficult to bear, especially on the weekends in Los Angeles, and most particularly so during times of solar storm … even geostorms as mild as that which we experienced last night …

In order to keep our personal Body of Light (aura, or energy field) pure and bright, I feel it is important to avoid injury to the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit itself, in my sense of it, is injured by mortification of the flesh.

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

It is the work of a Christian to discover the Grace of God within, or so I believe. What can be farther from that goal than the undercurrents that apparently evolved, over the centuries, in organizations such as the historic Knights Templar? Having read this no-holds barred account of that evolution …

Link: “The Dark History of the Knights Templar,” from “Knights Templar’s Saga” at theunjustmedia.com … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/templars/knights_templars01.htm

… as well as this more tempered account …

Link: “Knights Templar,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_TemplarMore tempered.

… I have some concerns about the renaissance of the Knights Templar tradition by newly formed groups here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

How is it that, in ages gone by, sincere members of devout religious orders have fallen prey to emanations of self-hatred and hatred of others through organizations founded for the best of reasons?

The answer, I feel, lies in the slight affinity aroused in the body to hatred of others through the practice of self-mortification …

Link: “Flagellation: Religious Practice,” written by Geoffrey Abbott, in Encyclopaedia Britannica … https://www.britannica.com/topic/flagellation ..

Through this ‘toehold’ of hatred of the body, flows forth into the noosphere hatred in all its forms: Hatred of women, abuse of children, envy at the sexual prowess of other men; hatred of this teaching or that of one’s own church, or of those of other Christian denominations; and finally, hatred even of the Light of God within, and turning to the abomination of Satanic ritual.

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

In the mid-13th Century, processions of self-flagellants took place in central Italy with intent to mitigate a devastating plague. In current times we face another such plague, the scourge of HIV/AIDS, which leaves those of our children who are so infected unable to produce viable offspring.

In our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., according to Centers for Disease Control statistics published in 2016, the lifetime risk of contracting HIV was 1 in 13 people …

Link: “2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-c3f ..

Since 2016, no state-by-state statistics have been published. Yet the epidemic, I feel, is cresting in the congested urban areas of the United States, or will soon do so.

Until statistics are caught up, we cannot definitively know where we stand with regard to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, shall we once more fall to the practice of publicly mistreating our bodies … whether in our streets, or on the silver screen?

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

The answer to the social stresses now testing the tensile strength of our democratic way of life lies not in hatred, not in acts of terrorism whether ultra right or ultra left, not in pogroms, not in vigilante justice, not in wanton waste of life, but in a learned and temperately discerning approach to the problems at hand.

Let us pay utmost respect to our bodies, the abiding temples of God’s loving kindness to us. It is this, the virtue of Christian charity … to ourselves as well as to others … that holds the answer to action in the world during this, the cusp of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 6:16 (KJV, public domain)

I am put in mind of the biography of pastor Martin Rinkart, whose example I find  inspiring in these times of worldwide hardship …

Martin Rinkart (23 April 1586, Eilenburg – 8 December 1649) was a pastor who ministered to his flock in Eilenburg, a walled German town, during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648.

In 1637, when the town was already worn down by war, the Great Pestilence took place. At that time the town of Eilenburg had four ministers. People from the surrounding area who were suffering from epidemic and famine sought refuge in Pastor Rinkart’s town.

As the plague-ridden entered the town, the townspeople became infected. One of the town’s ministers, no doubt overcome by a sense of impending doom, fled to healthier climes. The two other ministers stood by Pastor Rinkart, who saw them buried.

In the end, Pastor Rinkart was the only pastor left in Eilenburg. He conducted services for over 4,000 people, sometimes as many as 40 or 50 a day. In May of 1637 his wife died, which must have been a grievous personal blow to him. By the end of that year, the dead were being buried in trenches, and there were no services for them.

Under the most harrowing of personal circumstances, Martin Rinkart composed this uplifting hymn of gratitude for God’s myriad acts of loving kindness, a hymn that is often sung even today …

The examples of the many great saints of our Christian faith are like a beacon lighting our way in these difficult times. Like them, let us maintain hope in the face of the trials that stand before us. Let the heartbreak of many in our community lift us to faith in God’s sweet intention towards our Souls. Insofar as we may, let us speak to the pure Spirit within, so that we may find the courage to face calamity with equanimity, and the fortitude steadfastly to practice the Christian corporal works of mercy.

Let us feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned, ransom those held captive. and bury the dead.

There is a passage in Matthew 25 that speaks most poignantly to this time of Ascension on Earth. This passage brilliantly limns the manner in which we may choose to address the momentous days that lie before us, through works of mercy practiced in loving remembrance of Christ …

Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV, public domain)

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 “And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 “When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 “Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 “I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Surely none has spoken, nor likely ever will speak, more eloquently or to the point, than Christ himself has done. This passage sets us on a sure path through faith in Him, even in the face of  the most devastating hailstorm of temporal sorrow.

CONCLUSION

In these days of woe, shall we stand with Christ and act on his behalf? In truth, what we may do for the disempowered, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised people of Los Angeles, is what we may be privileged to do for Christ Himself in this lifetime.

It is the Body of Christ Himself to whom we minister. It is He whom we feed, whom we clothe, for whom we provide potable water, for whom we find lodging, whom we help to find a sure path after release from prison, and whom we seek to ransom from malefic entities … whether human or clothed in mists beyond our ken … who hold them prisoner.

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

Would Nanobot ‘Satellite Rape’ as an Anti-Terrorist Measure Be Unconstitutional? . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INCREASING INCIDENCE OF COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION FORECAST FOR THE COMING TIMES

“These times are forecast to include cognitive dysfunction, and we can anticipate this may take various twists and turns, including …

  • quasi-Illegal or else ‘out there’, ‘cutting edge’ human social experiments,
  • and a panicky or anxious sense of urgency about the need for them, despite scant outcomes research,

“These types of human social experiments may be a symptom of the cognitive dissonance for those facing anxiety attacks while in leadership positions.” –from Link: “On the Advisability of Requiring Transgender Surgery for Felon Release,” by Alice B. Clagett, written on 2 March 2018 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8qI ..

TOTALLY ‘OUT THERE’ ASTRAL RUMORS OF NANO ROBOTICS USED FOR ‘SATELLITE RAPE’ THROUGH GOVERNMENT GRANTS

On the astral plane, I have heard of a grant for mind control and emotional ‘takedown’ through sexual stimulation using human experimental subjects who have not volunteered for the project, and using forged patient consent forms.

Also, of a second grant for mind control using nano robotics or ‘nanobots’ from Indonesia for mental induction of a sexual nature, through what might be termed nano robotics (‘nanobots’) and  ‘satellite-rape’. The objective being euphemistically termed “Crowd Control.”

Clearly this is the stuff of science fiction pulp fiction; were it to be a U.S. government secret project, it would be psych evals all round! Not!

COULD A PUTATIVE INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST THREAT JUSTIFY CONTRAVENTION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF UNITED STATES CITIZENS?

Hypothesizing, it seems likely to me that astral rumors about such grants might have to do with mass media hype regarding the danger of foreign nations using nano robotics for ‘satellite rape’ against United States citizens. It seem possible to me that the anxious mind of a government agent charged with prevention of terrorism might construe forced experiments on American citizens to be a necessary anti-terrorist measure.

On the other hand, we have to consider our human rights as American citizens. For instance, the Declaration of Independence sets forth our unalienable right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” I further note that “…the Fifth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution declare that governments cannot deprive any person of “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. Also, Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person”. –from LInk: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life,_Liberty_and_the_pursuit_of_Happiness ..

It seems clear to me that manipulation of the minds and emotions of United States citizens through use of nanobots and ‘satellite rape’ could be seen as infringement of our ‘liberty’, to use one of the above terms.

In other words, if nanotech were to be used to control our emotions and thoughts, then how could we be termed ‘free’ or ‘at liberty’ to act, of our own free will, in pursuit of our own happiness?

How might we know what our own happiness might be, if we were to be compelled to sexual intercourse … perhaps with strangers in the street … or even to a previously unthinkable life of sex trafficking or sexual solicitation … simply because of a misperception, by someone in authority here in America, that an international terrorist threat might justify their agency’s abrogation of our civil liberties?

In the cold light of reason, such a manner of holding the anti-terrorist mandate might be construed as an act of terrorism against the American people. This, then would be a topic to be undertaken and devised at the highest level of our United States Department of Justice.

The notion that such an act might be condoned in light of nanobot and ‘satellite rape’ terrorist tactics by other governments would place such a polemic in the international court of appeal. Thus the issue would need to be placed in the docket of the International Court of Justice, the ‘World Court’, which settles legal disputes through the United Nations.

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

Homeland Security Grant on “Countering Violent Extremism”

I noticed on Linked-In that my former next-door neighbor Gale Feldman is President at FMA Community Health Consulting (Formerly Feldman, Milliken & Associates). Sean Milliken, of the prior company name, was her husband at the time I knew her (up until 2009, when I moved to the San Fernando Valley).

Link: “Gale Feldman, M.P.H.,” at Linked In, https://www.linkedin.com/in/gale-feldman-m-p-h-75b2234 ..

As I recall, Gale Feldman had a talent for grant writing? If memory serves; I am not completely certain about this. Her current work may have to do with this grant … possibly one that she wrote? … that was awarded by the Department of Homeland Security …

LInk: “Countering Violent Extremism Grant Applications (Awarded),” https://archive.org/stream/DHS-CVE-grants/EMW-2016-CA-APP-00294%20Full%20Application_djvu.txt .. Homeboy Industries, Fr. Greg Boyle, and Gale Feldman are among those named in the grant …

While these tidbits are bound to be irrelevant to the above discussion, they did spark my imagination and provide a putative context in which to develop a better understanding of the astral stories that have been circulating through the noosphere in recent years.

Dear Ones,

Today I found out that the lifetime risk of HIV infection published by Truvada, and referred to in an earlier blog of mine, originated with a 2016 Centers for Disease Control study which is public domain. Here is the overall report …

CALL TO ACTION: RESEARCH QUESTIONS REGARDING THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA HIV STATISTIC

I note in particular the lifetime risk in the District of Columbia is 1 in 13 people. I have a question as to the cause. Here are my thoughts as to lines of inquiry …

  • As the District of Columbia is a high density urban area, could it be that other high density urban areas in the United States are also among the highest risk?
    • To answer this question, a researcher would have to pull out the relevant statistics for cities from those for rural areas, and see if there is a statistically significant difference between urban and rural areas.
    • Alternatively, we could look at increasing population density in each of the above states, and see if it correlates with increasing risk.
    • If the answer to this question turns out to be ‘yes’, then I ask that researchers look into whether the presence of an international airport or an international port of call in a city increases lifetime risk of infection.
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia has experienced the first of regional ‘HIV blooms’, bell curve increases, and that we might expect the same in other areas? If so, when?
    • To answer this question, we would need to see an annual graph on lifetime risk in the District of Columbia, optimally going back 10 years. If it were found, say, that a District of Columbia ‘bloom’ happened in the time interval from 2014-2016, a three-year time span, then that information would be very helpful in planning for education, prevention and treatment of HIV in other areas of the United States, for a three-year interval starting in 2019.
    • As the CDC data are three years old, and if there was a ‘bloom’ in the District of Columbia from 2014-2016, then we might posit that there has been a similar bloom elsewhere in the United States in the three-year interval from 2016-2019. That might provide a basis for extrapolating to the true current situation in the United States, with regard to the pandemic. My thought is that the current situation might be much more intense than is surmised, and that this discrepancy might be due to the staleness of the CDC statistics and the quick rise in prevalence instanced by the steep slope of the epidemic bell curve (about which I have written in past years).
  • Could it be that the District of Columbia high risk has to do with the presence of international visitors? If so, could this mean that AIDS lifetime risk in other countries has been underreported or underestimated?
    • Another way to assess international visitor risk would be to test all military personnel who have been on away missions.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY TRANSMISSION GROUP

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Transmission Group,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Transmission Group,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This image is pretty standard, and I feel pretty misleading. For MSM (men having sex with men) the lifetime risk is 1 in 6. For women who inject drugs, 1 in 23. For men who inject drugs, 1 in 36. For heterosexual women, 1 in 241. and for heterosexual men, 1 in 473.

My concerns regarding this table are several. I wonder, for instance, whether the MSM category ought to be rephrased and reanalyzed in terms of men and women who are recipients of rectal sex, and this statistic compared to that for men who are donors of rectal sex.

Also significant would be the extent to which HIV screening varies for the various groups in the table. My thought on this is that we might find that men and women who inject drugs are more frequently tested for HIV concomitant with drug detox protocols instituted through emergency treatment of drug overdoses.

Then with regard to the big difference in the risk for heterosexual women and heterosexual men, how is it that the risk for heterosexual women is so very much greater than that for heterosexual men? Is it that women are more likely to test for HIV than men?

Could it be that a statistically significant portion of men described as heterosexual are bisexual, and are testing separately, under alias, as MSM, so as to avoid social stigma and preserve the appearance of a straight marriage? For such a segment of undeclared bisexual men married to straight women, they might be dosing their wives with HIV prophylactics without their knowledge, or alternatively, their wives may be infected and untreated, largely, I feel, because the CDC risk factors do not include married, straight women.

The question is, how large might a putative, undeclared bisexual and married male segment of the population be? If that were known, then we might better plan for diagnosis and treatment in the coming decade.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

This is a well-known set of statistics. The highest racial-ethnic category with regard to lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis is African American men: 1 in 20. Next are African American women: 1 in 48. Possibly socioeconomic disadvantage may negatively influence prevention and medical care in this group?

Then Hispanic men: 1 in 48 … and Hispanic women, 1 in 227. Guessing that, because of the influence of Catholicism, many Hispanic men may be married to Hispanic women, and because of the Church’s stance on homosexuality as an ‘objective disorder’ may not be willing to admit homosexual liaisons to their wives. The wives of such men might be at risk and unaware of it, and so, not testing. They might pass on due to AIDS-related issues, without being treated for these issues.

Then for White men, the risk is 1 in 132; whereas, for White women the risk is 1 in 880. Either White women are extremely lucky, in regard to their lifetime HIV risk, or else they decline to test, for reasons of social status. If the latter turns out to be so, then I feel the turning point, for white women, will be when the pandemic reaches such proportions in the United States that it is clear their friends and neighbors have it, and so it will be socially acceptable to test for and treat HIV infection.

LIFETIME RISK OF HIV DIAGNOSIS AMONG MSM BY RACE/ETHNICITY

Image: “Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis among MSM by Race/Ethnicity,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain

From this table, the lifetime risk for men having sex with men (MSM) is 50% … 1 in 2 people, for African American MSM. For Hispanic, MSM the risk is half that … 25%, or 1 in 4. For White MSM, the risk is 9%, or 1 in 11.

FOUR SCENARIOS OF THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF EXPANDED HIV TESTING, TREATMENT AND PrEP IN THE UNITED STATES, 2015-2020

I like the below graph very much, as it shows how helpful testing and treatment would be in slowing the progress of the pandemic here in the United States. This slowing of the progress of the disease would, I feel, ease the effect of the pandemic on manpower, and on the U.S. economy. It would also make it easier to provide adequate education and medical care for HIV-infected patients. In terms of human suffering, as well, I feel that optimization of education, prevention, and treatment are of paramount importance.

As can be seen in the below graph, were this optimization to have occurred beginning in 2015, then in 2020 new infections would have been reduced from 265,330 to 80,270. That would have been a reduction of 70% … which is to say, a slowing of the rate of progress of the disease by 70%.

In future five-year intervals, we might expect the same statistic to apply. This, surely, is ample impetus for optimizing HIV education, prevention, and treatment as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.

Image: “Four Scenarios of the Potential Impact of Expanded HIV Testing, Treatment and PrEP in the United States, 2015-2020,” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, published 2016; accessed 8 June 2017 … http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2016/croi-2016.html … public domain
This bar graph shows four scenarios of the potential impact of expanded HIV testing, treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) use in the United States from 2015 to 2020.
The first bar shows that at current testing and treatment rates, there would be 265,330 new HIV infections in the U.S between 2015 and 2020.
The second bar shows that increasing the use of PrEP among high-risk populations (40 percent of men-who-have-sex-with-men; 10 percent of injecting drug users; and 10% of high-risk heterosexuals) could avert 48,221 new infections. This would mean that only 217,109 new HIV infections would occur in the U.S. from 2015 to 2020.
The third bar shows that increasing the number of people diagnosed with HIV who are on treatment to 85 percent, and ensuring that 60 percent achieve viral suppression would avert 88,908. Increasing PrEP use among high-risk populations at these higher treatment rates would avert an additional 31,988 new infections, reducing the total number of new HIV infections to 144,434.
The final bar shows that if we achieve the targets of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (85 percent of people diagnosed are on treatment and 80 percent of those achieve viral suppression), we would avert 168,132 infections, with an additional 16,928 HIV infections prevented if PrEP was used as well, resulting in only 80,270 new HIV infections from 2015 to 2020.

Geomagnetic Crack and Weekend Noospheric Unrest . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

DO CLAIR CHATTER AND NOOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE HAVE TO DO WITH DISTURBANCE IN EARTH’S MAGNETOSPHERE AND IONOSPHERE?

The last few days were quite a weekend for noospheric unrest and clair chatter. On Friday night I hardly slept for the odd things happening in my personal electromagnetic field. I got a telephone alert from “Space Weather” … www.spaceweather.com … at about midnight on Friday night, 16 March 2019. It did not wake me up, as I had not been able to get to sleep for the psychic commotion. That naturally gave rise to the question: Do clair chatter and noospheric disturbance have to do with disturbance in Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere?

The “Space Weather” report was to do with a Kp Index of 5 …

A planetary K index of 5 is not such a big magnitude … Theoretically, it only affects people in the northernmost fringe of the United States …

Yet, the noospheric and electromagnetic carrying on continued through Sunday. Why? The answer appeared in an article on the “Space Weather” website today. Apparently, an anticipated G1 geostorm was accompanied by a crack in Earth’s magnetic field. And gosh, was it a doozy …

As you may know, the 2019 Spring Equinox is this Wednesday, 20 March 2019. According to the “Space Weather” article, these types of geocracks are characteristic of the Spring and Autumn equinoxes; thus the term ‘equinox cracks’.

ELECTRICITY AND THE HUMAN NERVOUS SYSTEM

Now, back to the question whether chaotic clair chatter and noospheric disturbance have to do with turmoil in Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere …

As you may know, the nervous systems of human beings have electric and magnetic properties. Nervous system messages are communicated via electricity within the body …

Link: “How the Body Uses Electricity: Electricity is everywhere, even in the human body. Our cells are specialized to conduct electrical currents. Electricity is required for the nervous system to send signals throughout the body and to the brain, making it possible for us to move, think and feel.,” by Amber Plante, in Graduate Student Association, at University of Maryland Graduate School … https://www.graduate.umaryland.edu/gsa/gazette/February-2016/How-the-human-body-uses-electricity/ ..

MAGNETISM AND THE SENSATION OF PAIN IN HUMAN BEINGS

From what I can tell, a static magnetic field may damp down nervous system signals …

A research article has been done that shows strong static magnetic fields … 1200-G … make the striate cortex … the visual impulse … of cats less excitable …

Link: “Magnetic Field Influence on Central Nervous System Function,” by AD Rosen and J. Lubowsky, in “Experimental Neurology,” 1987 Mar;95(3):679-87. Abstract … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3817086 ..

A nerve dampening effect putatively exerted by strong static magnetic fields may account for alternative medical claims that magnetic bracelets and anklets damp down arthritic pain (as pain is sensed through nerve impulses) …

Link: “The Effect of Magnetism on the Nervous System,” in “Magnetic Therapy Bracelets” … http://www.magnetic-therapy-bracelets.com/effect-of-magnetism-on-nervous-system.html ..

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health Care at the National Institutes of Health, has, as yet, insufficient evidence for the widely held popular belief that magnets reduce osteoarthritic pain, but it has found that electromagnetic mats can do so, to some extent. It has also found them effective in the treatment of migraines …

Link: “Magnets for Pain,” by National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health Care, NIH … https://nccih.nih.gov/Health/magnets-for-pain ..

…..

So then, broadly speaking, I gather that the electric force facilitates nervous system messages, and that static electromagnetic fields have a pain-dampening, and perhaps also a nervous system message-dampening effect.

MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY IN EARTH’S MAGNETOSPHERE AND IONOSPHERE

Earth’s magnetosphere has magnetic properties, and the ionosphere beneath it has electric and dynamic magnetic properties. According to Wikipedia …

“The magnetosphere is the region above the ionosphere that is defined by the extent of the Earth’s magnetic field in space. It extends several tens of thousands of kilometers into space, protecting the Earth from the charged particles of the solar wind and cosmic rays that would otherwise strip away the upper atmosphere, including the ozone layer that protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation.

“Electric currents induced in the ionosphere generate magnetic fields (ionospheric dynamo region). Such a field is always generated near where the atmosphere is closest to the Sun, causing daily alterations that can deflect surface magnetic fields by as much as one degree.” –from “Earth’s Magnetic Field,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_magnetic_field ..

Then there is the question of the effect of geomagnetic storms upon Earth’s magnetosphere. According to Wikipedia …

“The varying conditions in the magnetosphere, known as space weather, are largely driven by solar activity. If the solar wind is weak, the magnetosphere expands; while if it is strong, it compresses the magnetosphere and more of it gets in. Periods of particularly intense activity, called geomagnetic storms, can occur when a coronal mass ejection erupts above the Sun and sends a shock wave through the Solar System. Such a wave can take just two days to reach the Earth. Geomagnetic storms can cause a lot of disruption; the “Halloween” storm of 2003 damaged more than a third of NASA’s satellites. The largest documented storm occurred in 1859. It induced currents strong enough to short out telegraph lines, and aurorae were reported as far south as Hawaii.” –from “Earth’s Magnetic Field,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_magnetic_field ..

WE ARE EARTH’S CHILDREN: OUR NERVOUS SYSTEMS DANCE TO HER TUNE

We humankind are Earth’s children. Our nervous systems dance to the tune of her magnetosphere and ionosphere. When the latter are dynamically in motion, then so are our own nervous systems, which depend upon the energies of magnetism and electricity.

It is clear from Markus Varik’s above-reference image of the 16 March 2019 equinox crack, that geostorms make the magnetosphere and the ionosphere more chaotically dynamic … less static.

During geostorms, we can anticipate more nervous system excitability (as evidenced by findings in the “Experimental Neurology” article referenced above).

Then, because the ionosphere and the magnetosphere will become less static … more dynamic … during geostorms, we can anticipate more feelings of physical pain … and possibly also emotional pain … during geostorms.

If the pain dampening response to static electromagnetic mats alluded to by the NIH webpage might infer a wider nervous system dampening response, then the non-static nature of geostorms might support temporary excitement of the nervous system, including, possibly, temporary excitement of clair perception.

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