SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

About the Paramecia

And now I have just a small amount of channeling from the paramecia. (Singular is ‘paramecium’.)

These microbes live in bodies of warm, stagnant water. They are the sharks of the microbial world, much larger than the yeasts and the bacteria. In fact, paramecia are voracious predators of both yeasts and bacteria; they are the lions of the microbial savannah. Or to put it more aptly, they are the sharks of the microbial seas.

Sidebar: Paramecia – Lions of the Microbial Savannah – Sharks of the Microbial Seas

  • Paramecia are 50 to 330 µm or ‘micrometers’ in length. (A micrometer is a millionth of a meter.) They are the lions of the microbial savannah, the voracious sharks of the microbial seas.
  • Yeasts are 3 to 40 µm in length. That would mean that some yeasts are 15 times smaller than the smallest paramecia, and most yeasts are at least a little smaller than a paramecium. Also, they may be much slower moving, and more limited in strategic tactics than paramecia.
  • Bacteria are 0.2 to 10 µm in length. That would mean that paramecia are at least five times longer than bacteria, and often much larger than that.

On the clairaudient plane, they sound kind of rough, and gruff, and ragged-edged. Their voices are not mellifluous.

On the World View of Paramecia

I asked them: Do you have any fun?

And they said: No, we don’t! … And then I was trying to think of what to say next.

And so I said: What do you do?

And they said, in a low, threatening tone of voice: We warn you not to copulate.  [x2]

And I wondered: What are they doing to these micro-organisms while they’re copulating?

And they said: Balancing act on that one!

… That is a term that I have heard quite frequently in the collective subconscious: Balancing act on that one!  …  And so I thought and thought about it, while I was swimming.

And it occurred to me that this might mean that they are balancing the population of other species by preying upon them … eating them.

I was thinking about that, and I thought: Gosh, they’re sort of like cannibals.

And they said: No, we’re kind of like exo-eaters … or something like that. It was really very interesting. They pick up that prefix exo … as in exobiology … I guess, and then said they are ‘exo-eaters’.

Do they feel the microbes they are eating are from other planets? For instance, the bacteria are from Mars. They would qualify as exo

What about the yeasts? According to Wikipedia, “The first yeast originated hundreds of millions of years ago….” –from Link: “Yeast,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YeastWP:CC BY-SA ..

Yes but, where did they come from?

TREE OF LIFE:  THE GREAT SCHISM OF SPECIES LINES

From the below Tree of Life, it appears there was, long ago, a giant, possibly unexplained schism in a very different subset of species, including Protozoa, algae, slime molds, plants, animals, and fungi, of which yeasts are a member …

WHY THE SCHISM?

The big question is: Why the schism? Has this anything to do with the Late Heavy Bombardment? …

Link: “Late Heavy Bombardment,” in Wikipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Late_Heavy_Bombardment ..

If so, would the changeup have to do with heavy cosmic ray bombardment, causing radical gene shifts in pre-existing life?

Might some of the pre-existing life have been in some way protected from the cosmic ray bombardment, possibly by being deep underground, or deep in the oceans of Earth?

Might these survivors of the old gene lines … for instance, the Martian bacterial colonists of Earth …  have then carried on after the bombardment, finding adventitious homes in the multicelled beings that began to manifest through the new, and very different, second gene line?

ORIGINS OF LIFE ON EARTH

If so, then most 3D life on Earth might be seen to have originated on Mars.

Of course, through the occult lore there is a belief that some forms of 3D and 4D life on Earth arrived from other planets … such as Maldek [now the asteroid belt) and Venus … or in the case of 4D life, even from other constellations, such as Orion.

In the 3D realm, I do not see a case for yeasts and bacteria, the prey of paramecia, being exo to paramecia, unless paramecia are exo to Earth and also exo to Mars. Maybe more will be known about this later.

I hope there will be more channeled on them later, because that was hardly anything.

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

Dear Ones,

I just viewed this very interesting video, which appears to show two paramecia freeing a third paramecium from its Didinium predator.

LASSOS OR GRAPPLING ROPES OF THE DIDINIUM

To begin the process of capturing and ingesting a paramecium, the Didinium lassos the paramecium with thin threads, which can be seen at 10 o’clock in this image …

Image: “Didinium Ingesting Paramecium,” a photograph by Greg Antipa which was uploaded on 15 July 2014 … https://images.fineartamerica.com/images-medium-large-5/didinium-ingesting-paramecium-biophoto-associates.jpg .. 

See how thin the connecting threads are, and how the proceed from the funnel-shaped proboscis of the Didinium and fan out in an umbrella pattern to attach to the paramecium?

COUNTERCLOCKWISE AND THEN CLOCKWISE LASSOING TECHNIQUE

In the video below … at 6.53 – 7.03 … I note how the Didinium uses a counterclockwise rotational looping of the lasso 4 times round one end of the paramecium, and then a clockwise rotational looping of the lasso 4 times round the same end of the paramecium to capture it.

Then at 7.22 – 7.39 a Didinium uses a greater number of counterclockwise and clockwise loops to lasso its prey …

VIDEO: DIDINIUM EATS PARAMECIUM

Here is the video …

Video: “Didinium eats paramecium,” by mantismundi, 3 December 2011 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZ7wv2LhynM&index=2&list=PLwMH6wNUj41-hbwUtotYsGu39wdHMSKkD ..

COULD THE NOSE OR ‘PROBOSCIS’ OF THE DIDINIUM BE A BORING INSTRUMENT, WHICH MAY HAVE AT ITS END THE GRAPPLING ROPES?

I saw an image of the Didinium’s nose or ‘proboscis’ that made it look more like a boring instrument or funnel …

Image: “Didinium” … https://classconnection.s3.amazonaws.com/705/flashcards/2624705/jpg/didinium1361747805642-thumb400.jpg ..

This looks like the image I saw in the above video … from 4.14 – 4.59  … There it looks like the Didinium is boring into the paramecium. Bored off fragments of the skin or ‘pellicle’ of the paramecium can be seen floating away. 

At 4.59 – 5.12 on the video, for instance, it looks as though the Didinium may have bored a hole into the paramecium’s pellicle, and that the paramecium then ceases moving.

Is the Didinium’s proboscis, then, a boring instrument and funnel, and is it boring a hole in the pellicle and injecting a numbing agent into the side of the paramecium?

The place on the Didinium where the connector threads or grappling hooks issue from its proboscis is relatively fragile and small in circumference. That makes it susceptible to being broken through, as may be seen below.

TWO PARAMECIA HELP A SMALLER PARAMECIUM ESCAPE FROM DIDINIUM

In the video above … at 5.15 – 5.30 … two paramecia approach the third paramecium that has been lassoed by the Didinium.

One of the paramecia then creates a rotational wave through its action at 8 o’clock to the captured paramecium. This makes the Didinium spin around, weakening the place where the proboscis attaches to the connecting threads or grappling hooks.

Then the helper paramecium approaches from 1 o’clock, and through its movement creates a sharp wave front that snaps the connecting threads.

The second helper paramecium nudges the freed captive away, apparently so that it will be out of danger.

Is the Didinium Mortally Wounded? I note how the Didinium balls up and ceases moving. Is it startled and contracting because of danger? Or is it mortally wounded because the connector threads or grappling hooks have been broken off from its proboscis?

IS SIZE RELEVANT TO THIS HELPER INTERACTION? DOES PARAMECIUM HAVE A MATERNAL INSTINCT?

Note that the freed paramecium is smaller than the two helper paramecia. Might this be relevant to their reaction?

At 2.22 – 2.34 on the video, for instance, there is a Didinium ingesting a paramecium, and two other, larger paramecia approach and investigate. so this supports the notion that size matters, and that the small size of one paramecium may trigger a maternal or protective instinct in larger paramecia.

However, in the action at 2.22 – 2.34 on the video, the larger paramecia give up and go away. Possibly though, it could be that once the process of ingestion starts, there is no way to free the captive.

Positing That Didinium Expels a Numbing or Paralyzing Agent. As a normal paramecium might speed up to quickly avoid the Didinium, one might posit the Didinium may produce a numbing or paralyzing agent, that the second helper paramecium tries to counteract in nudging the ex-captive to safety.

At 3.40 – 4.14 on the video, for instance, I note a Didinium has lassoed a paramecium, which is struggling but feebly. Is it just tired out, or has it been numbed or paralyzed?

Then a larger paramecium swims up in a lively way; clearly it is not numbed or anesthetized. One wonders whether it had intention to help free the captive, but this is not possible to discover on the video, as the clip ends.

Pedal to the Metal . Chakra Clearing . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 28 August 2013; revised
Location: By the Animas River, in Farmington, New Mexico

Dear Ones,

Here is a story about clearing our chakras through the Incoming Light. There is an automotive analogy as well. An edited Summary follows the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am down by the river. I was driving my car early this morning. I have a story for you about driving a car and the idea of clearing the chakras.

We all have little ‘speckles’ on our auras. It has to do with accumulation of relative lack of Light in what really is a very strong body of Light.  We all have that great, beautiful body of Light. But it is a little obscured by the ‘speckles’ … could be other people’s energy that is included in our energy like little ‘bubbles’ … or sometimes it is something that we think; some trauma that we are holding in … might be maybe a bigger speckle from some lifetime.

They are all in the process of clearing, because the more Light that comes in, the harder it is for these relative inclusions of non-Light to stick around. Sometimes we want to stay the same. The problem is, the Light coming in makes these little bubbles like ‘vacuoles’ in the tiny little micro-organism known as the ‘paramecium’ …

Image: Vacuoles in a paramecium … http://sahsrojas.pbworks.com/f/1257544882/paramecium.gif ..

We have our own little vacuoles in our body of Light that are causing physical and emotional and mental discomfort as the Light increases.

Sometimes our mental mind says to us: I don’t want to change for anything … And so it hurts. Then eventually it hurts enough that we are willing to let go, and the little bubbles just float away.

Along those lines, here is your auto or car analogy: Let’s say you have a notion that there is something wrong. Say you are missing milk, and you need to go to the grocery store. So you get in your car, and you are thinking: Gosh, maybe I would rather stay home and watch TV … or … Should I go to the grocery store?  

You have the car started, and you are ready to go, but you have not made up your mind. Your foot is revving the engine up a little bit … testing it out. And then you say to yourself: No, I’d rather stay home and watch TV.

That is what happens, basically: We rev up our engines, and feel some energetic noise when the solar activity starts, or when there are incoming proton streams. We feel a sound like a revving of engines in us. But if we do not have the intention to ‘go to the store’ … if we do not put our foot on the gas pedal … if we do not have the desire to clear our chakras and to get rid of our ‘speckles’, then they just settle back down. The engine noise dies down, and we go back to watching TV.

But if we have that desire, we put our foot on the gas pedal … or we place that oomph behind the unsettled ‘speckles’ that are rising up in our aura … and they go flying off into space, never to be seen again.

So you have a choice. You can go watch TV, or you can go to the store and get your milk. It is really a question of desire and intention. It is up to you what you want to do. It is better to make the choice while aware than when not aware, though, do you not think?

It might not be the time to clear ‘speckles’ or bubbles right now. But know that, at the time when you decide to do it, it is a relatively painless process, compared to grasping them tight, in a place where they do not really belong to be. That is news for the future!

Talk to you later. Bye!

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