Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a diet that may help alleviate COVID-like symptoms. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

For those of you that develop COVID-19 symptoms or are diagnosed positive for the coronavirus and have the symptoms, I have a hint that may help diminish the harshness of the symptoms.

Here Were My COVID-Like Symptoms

On 4 March 2020 I began to develop physical symptoms I had never experienced before. At first I felt a thrumming in my gastrointestinal tract, and then a thrumming in other parts of my body. It felt as if my gut brain had sensed something awful in the air, and that my body was somehow concocting remedies for a threat it sensed … whether within my body, or merely in the air, I could not tell.

A day or so thereafter I felt a few sharp pinprick aches randomly here and there in my body. The next day I felt chills coursing through my body, but I had no fever.

In the ensuing days, I felt very great fatigue, such that all I wanted to do was sleep for days. There was a half day of gastrointestinal tract uneasiness. Then whatever it was settled as a moderate cold in the bronchial tubes and lungs, producing lots of mucus or phlegm.

A few days later I found I could get out of bed and walk a few steps without very great fatigue. After that each day was better. I was on the mend. Little by little, I began walking in the neighborhood. Then I went on to moderate mountain hiking.

Then I had a symptom that really worried me: I fell asleep one night, and then woke up to my upper airway popping closed, slightly stuck together with mucus, it seemed. Then as I inhaled it popped open. As to my recollection I had never had such a symptom before, I thought I had best try to find out what was up with that.

What Doctors in the United States Are Calling Symptoms Such as Those I Had

I stopped by one of the local hospitals, and they said my symptoms did not fit their description of COVID-19. They thought I might have symptoms of anxiety. They said they were getting lots of cases of anxious people coming to the hospital … people who thought they had COVID-19 but, they said, did not have it. So they sent me on home.

On the other side of the coin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a great many people in the United States have died this year of causes not diagnosed as COVID-19. Of the 99,000 ‘excess deaths’ that the CDC predicts for 2020, about 32,300 deaths are not diagnosed as COVID-19 …

Link: “COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 22 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ihj ..

It seems to me that people with mild COVID-19 symptoms may be going to the doctor or to the hospital, and then diagnosed as anxious, then going home and dying at home of respiratory failure due to COVID. I feel this theory is worth investigation, and hope the hospitals here in the United States will consider it.

A Diet That Helped Alleviate My COVID-Like Symptoms

For those for whom Western medicine has no remedy, I have this to offer: During the course of my March 2020 illness, I found that eating certain foods caused an immediate adverse reaction. It was as if, in the space of a few minutes, alarm bells were ringing all over my body. I would go from feeling not too good, but manageable symptoms, to desperate physical distress in but a moment.

For me, some of the foods that caused this adverse reaction were mucus-forming foods such as wheat flour or dairy; animal protein (fish, chicken, or red meat); solid foods of any kind; refined sugars; alcohol; and foods with chemicals in them.

For me, at first I switched to small amounts of water daily, and that alone. Then a little later, what I could eat was a small amount of broth from boiled or steamed vegetables. Then after a week or so, I could eat a tablespoon or so of watered down bean or lentil soup, with tender, well cooked vegetables mixed in. Days later, I could eat half a cup of the soup.

Thus through very careful diet I was able to alleviate the symptoms of the COVID-like illness I had.

How My Health Is, Three Months After Onset of COVID-Like Symptoms

Today, more than three months after onset of COVID-like symptoms, my diet is more like what used to be normal for me. But I find I want to eat much less food, and I still prefer to avoid sweets, wheat flour, and dairy products.

My physical endurance is back to normal. I am masked but out and about Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains daily.

Thoughts on Gaining Immunity From a COVID-Like Virus

I have slightly more mucus or phlegm production by the lungs and bronchial tubes than is normal. My feeling is that this may be a good thing; I may still be encountering coronavirus in the air, here in Los Angeles, but I may have developed immunity to the virus, and the mucus or phlegm from the lungs may be proof that my body is now well able to quell the virus.

Could Diet Be the Cause of Very Different COVID Impact, Country to Country?

I have been following the World Health Organization’s daily situation reports on COVID …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” by the World Health Organization … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I could not but be amazed at the differences in the numbers of cases and deaths from COVID from nation to nation. It occurs to me that the diet of the peoples of some nations may promote alleviation of COVID-like symptoms. Especially I wonder if the diet of the peoples of some nations may alleviate mucus or phlegm production during pneumonia, and thus help prevent COVID deaths in those countries?

Conclusion

I know we here in the West think less of diet as medicine than do the peoples of the developing countries of the world. That may be because we have universal health care and the benefits of Western medicine.

In the case of COVID-like symptoms, it might be helpful for the people of the United States to turn to diet as medicine. Maybe we could take a look at the diet of people in countries that have been less affected by COVID than has been the United States.

As well, I hope my explanation of a diet that worked for me will be of interest and even maybe of help to those who have coronavirus-like symptoms in the coming year.

I hope everyone will be able to avoid the worst of the COVID-like symptoms through whatever diet works for them, through rest if fatigue sets in, and through God’s graceful kindness in answer to our prayers.

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

Dear Ones,

SAFE SURGERY: RISK OF GLOVE PERFORATION DURING SURGERY

A while ago I did a blog on the effectiveness of surgical gloving in preventing blood taint during surgeries …

Link: “Compendium: Surgical Risk, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis, and Hard Drugs,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 17 October 2016; updated on 6 July 2017 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6gY ..

Here is the paper that was reviewed in the blog …

Link: “Occult Glove Perforation during Ophthalmic Surgery,” by Leonard Apt, MD, and (by invitation) Kevin M. Miller, MD, Tr. Am. Ophth. Soc., Vol. LXXXX, 1992 … http://europepmc.org/backend/ptpmcrender.fcgi?accid=PMC1298427&blobtype=pdf ..

In the paper, if I understand it correctly, Drs. Apt and Miller found a 15.0% incidence of surgically induced glove perforations over seven months.

In other words, if there is a 15% chance that a doctor’s surgical gloves might be perforated in 7 months, then there is a 15% chance of blood tainting during a medical procedure that involves exposure to a patient’s blood while it is in his or her body. According to the laws of probability, as I understand it, that would be a 15% chance of virus transmission with each surgery.

Self-Assessment and Segregation of HIV-Infected Surgeons to HIV-Infected Patient Groups

From this I deduced the possible danger to doctors of their being infected with HIV or hepatitis while they were wearing surgical gloves while doing operations. This then, might be a source point for HIV / AIDS ‘blooms’ as the pandemic progresses, unless the medical self-assesses and limits surgeries by infected surgeons to infected patient groups.

SAFE INCARCERATION: MITIGATING HIV / AIDS ‘BLOOMS’ IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS

As an aside, I feel that the incidence of HIV / AIDS ‘blooms’ in penal institutions … correctional facilities or prison … might be mitigated in a similar manner; that is, if correctional institutions self-assess and limit policing by infected correctional officers to infected groups of prisoners. The possibility of a correctional facility HIV / AIDS ‘bloom’ has to do with the practice of rape in these facilities, whether among prisoners, or by correctional facility officers. Prison rape is a practice just now beginning to be brought to light and figured into the pandemic equation.

COMPARISON OF SURGICAL GLOVE PERFORATION STATISTICS TO STATISTICS ON CONDOM BREAKAGE

To return to the article by Drs. Apt and Miller: That article got me thinking about how that finding might apply to the wearing of condoms during sexual intercourse. I think that there’s some congruence there.

Other factors being equal, might it be that wearing a condom during the act of sex might incur a 15% chance of HIV, hepatitis, or other virus transmission with every act of sexual intercourse? I’ve read an article by Planned Parenthood that supports this …

Link: “What are the chances of getting pregnant with a condom?,” by Emily@Planned Parenthood, 18 December 2017 … https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/teens/ask-experts/what-are-the-chances-of-getting-pregnant-with-a-condom ..

According to the article, among heterosexual couples where the man uses a condom during sexual intercourse, 18 in 100 of the women will become pregnant each year.

Among heterosexual couples where the woman uses a female condom, 21 in 100 women yearly will become pregnant.

Thus there is an 18% or 21% ‘ineffectiveness’ rate through condom use amongst heterosexual couples yearly. This figure is reasonably close to the 15% ‘ineffectiveness’ factor found by Drs. Apt and Miller for surgical glove protection.

Thus, we might extrapolate that a 15% to 21% annual effectiveness rate for prevention of STD virus transmission might be attained by using condoms, whether M2F, M2M, or F2F.

In other words, 15% to 21% of people using condoms for ‘safe sex’ might be anticipated to contract HIV or hepatitis annually, if their partner is infected.

RISK MITIGATION THROUGH DOUBLE BAGGING

Glove Perforation Risk Mitigation by Double Bagging During Surgery

The study by Drs. Apt and Miller discussed at some length the advantages of wearing two pairs of surgical gloves during surgery … of ‘double gloving’. Their retroactive findings were interesting, but inconclusive. One of the factors that needed to be looked at in future studies was correlation of location of punctures in inner and outer gloves worn during surgery. Were these to correlate … in other words, in cases of perforation of both gloves at one location … then, most likely, the risk of viral transmission, in cases where either the surgeon or the patient is infected, would be greater.

Then, in surgical cases, much might depend on the type of surgery being performed. For instance, hip arthroplasties … that is, total hip replacement surgeries … there is rough work involved. These surgeries must be done by physically strong surgeons. Manipulation of the joints may, I feel, result in greater likelihood of glove puncture. That is just my thought on it, without my doing any research on it. So it seemed to me that studies ought to be planned regarding correlation of location of punctures in inner and outer gloves worn during these types of surgery.

Risk Mitigation by Double Bagging Condoms During Sexual Intercourse

Wikipedia states that ‘double bagging’ … using two condoms instead of one … offers greater protection …

“‘Double bagging’, using two condoms at once, is often believed to cause a higher rate of failure due to the friction of rubber on rubber. This claim is not supported by research. The limited studies that have been done found that the simultaneous use of multiple condoms decreases the risk of condom breakage.” –from Link: “Condom,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condom … CC BY-SA 3.0

Planned Parenthood has more to say on this …

Link: “Fact Sheet: The Truth about Condoms,” by Planned Parenthood, July 2011 …  https://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/9313/9611/6384/truth_about_condoms.pdf ..

Under the subheading “Double Bagging,” they mention that three studies indicate double bagging … wearing two condoms … is effective in decreasing the risk of condoms breaking. One of the studies stated that double bagging decreased the risk of HIV transmission from 1.8% to only 0.2%. The study in question was …

Citation: “Multiple Condom Use and Decreased Condom Breakage and Shippage in Thailand,” by Rugpao, Sugwal, et al., February 1997, in Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
and Human Retrovirology,14(2), 169–173.

That would mean that single bagging results in a 98.2% effectiveness (that is 100% less 1.8%), and that double bagging results in 99.8% effectiveness (that is, 100% less 0.2%), as to the risks of condom breakage during sexual intercourse.

What do these percentages mean, in terms of the probability of HIV transmission? If the risk of condom breakage decreases from 1.8% to 0.2% with double bagging, then the risk, with double bagging, is only 10% as great as with single bagging.

Planned Parenthood translates 98% effectiveness as meaning, in a practical context, that 18% of heterosexual women using condoms will become pregnant each year. Were this risk to be 10% as great, then, presumably, only 2 women in 100 would become pregnant annually.

This pregnancy rate presumably correlates to condom breakage or slippage; thus the statistics might also apply to transmission of HIV and hepatitis. What we have then, is a potentially very significant mitigation of the rate of transmission of HIV and hepatitis through double bagging during sexual intercourse.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SLOWING DOWN THE COURSE OF A PANDEMIC

Slowing down the course of the HIV pandemic is important, both in terms of mitigation of human suffering, and also in terms of stabilization of the work force, and of available manpower, so as to keep our economy as strong and healthy as that of other nations, all of which are being impacted by the HIV / AIDS pandemic.

Uninfected Children Can Help Strengthen the Workforce of the Next Five Decades

The more we are able to slow down the course of the pandemic, worldwide, the greater will be the numbers of uninfected children born to the upcoming generation. These children, along with people now adults and uninfected, will strengthen our workforce during the next five decades.

Are HIV-Positive Newborns Who Are Resistant to HIV Being Born Worldwide?

Slowing down the course of the pandemic will also allow the human gene pool a ‘leg up’ in the natural course of selecting for a population that is resistant to HIV. More and more babies are being born already infected with HIV. The scant literature on mortality rates leans toward these babies not surviving to adulthood; but the truth is, data on this topic are woefully inadequate, as yet.

For instance, it is possible that babies are being born in the world today, who have the HIV infection. But because they appear to be perfectly normal, no one knows that they carry HIV. This might be the case, for instance, in Africa, where health care resources are less available.

Insurance Availability of Voluntary Annual HIV Testing in the United States

It might also be the case here in the United States, where annual HIV testing … though paid for by Medicare and other government programs … is seldom taken advantage of. This is most likely due, I feel, to backwardness of physician guidelines regarding the HIV pandemic. That would be easy to fix, though, by updating physicians on the advisability of annual HIV testing, and of testing newborns for HIV.

Nurturing HIV-Positive Newborns Who Are Resistant to HIV Will Strengthen Our Gene Pool

Thus it is possible that children are being born, here in the United States, and also worldwide, who are resistant to the HIV virus; who are able to lead healthy lives, and to bear healthy children. On this very likely possibility, it would be wholly inadvisable to react to the birth of HIV-positive children in our hospitals, with a policy of euthanasia. This type of policy would place our nation at a disadvantage, as regards other nations, in birthing a generation of children who have HIV, but are naturally resistant to the virus.

Putting the breaks on the rate of the pandemic … through double bagging, through voluntary annual testing and voluntary testing of newborns, and also through education on the risks and rewards of various sexual lifestyle choices … will allow the United States time and resources to nurture HIV-positive newborns, rather than making the short-sighted choice to euthanize them as a cost-saving measure.

These will be children who will be able to bear viable children, despite the infection, in years to come. Thus, slowing down the course of the pandemic will allow our human gene pool a ‘leg up’ in the natural course of selecting for a population that is resistant to HIV.

ATTENUATION: THE NORMAL COURSE OF A PANDEMIC

Mortality Rate During the 1918 Flu Pandemic, Compared to the 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic

We can expect that the HIV of future generations will be much different from the HIV of today. Such was the case with the influenza epidemic of the early 1900s … In the 1900s, the flu was very deadly, striking down one in every 10 to 20 people …

“The global mortality rate from the 1918/1919 pandemic is not known, but an estimated 10% to 20% of those who were infected died. With about a third of the world population infected, this case-fatality ratio means 3% to 6% of the entire global population died.” –from Link: “1918 Flu Pandemic,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_flu_pandemic … CC BY 3.0

Yet today, many people successfully survive infection with influenza. For instance, in the 2009-2010 Swine flu … H1N1 … pandemic, 1 in 5 people were infected, but the mortality rate was only 0.2% …

Link: “Swine flu infected 1 in 5, death rate low, study shows,” by Kate Kelland, 25 January 2013 … https://www.reuters.com/article/us-flu-h1n1-pandemic/swine-flu-infected-1-in-5-death-rate-low-study-shows-idUSBRE90O0T720130125 ..

Pandemics: A More Benign Infecting Agent Over Time? Or a Stronger Human Gene Pool?

As I understand it, this is the normal progress of a pandemic: Those who are genetically most susceptible to the infecting agent are likely to pass on, in either the first or the second generation of the pandemic. Others, with genes more capable of withstanding the impact of the infecting agent, survive. The result, over time, is a gene pool more capable of resisting the impact of the infecting agent.

From our human standpoint, over time, it appears that the infecting agent has become more benign. But in fact, it is our human gene pool that has become more viable.

This is the normal course of pandemics in human populations. Were we to look at the course of pandemics in domestic animal populations, we would most likely find correlation.

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

Dear Ones,

I wrote up these notes in April 2018, with a hope that I would soon finish them off. More than a year later, I have to figure I may never get round to that. I apologize to my reader that they are presented here in outline form …

THOUGHTS ON PROVIDING STAGE ONE WORK FOR THE CALIFORNIA HOMELESS AT LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE, IN EXCHANGE FOR SOCIAL SERVICES

I have a thought that Stage One work might be provided the California homeless at less than minimum wage, in exchange for social services such as State One housing, necessary medical treatment, food, and temporary housing.

I note we have precedents in paying less than the minimum wage, here in America: Commission sales work, work on small farms, and newspaper delivery, for instance …

Link: “When Must Employers Pay the Minimum Wage?, updated by Sachi Barreiro, Attorney, at NOLO … https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employers-pay-minimum-wage-law-29600.html ..

Prison Work Programs for Less Than a Dollar an Hour

Then there is the special instance of prison labor, where inmates have the voluntary option to work, for less than $1 an hour …

Link: “How Much Do Incarcerated People Earn in Each State?” by Wendy Sawyer, 10 April 2017, in Prison Policy Initiative … https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2017/04/10/wages/ ..

Thus we have a precedent, in the exceptional circumstance of incarceration, for offering work at a great deal less than the minimum wage. Could we build upon this precedent by offering work training to our felons or released felons or homeless, at far less than minimum wage?

If the precedent might be stretched in this way, then we might have the setting for an economic bounce-back, here in California, as greater numbers of the currently unemployed are able to find employment.

Prison Release Work Camps. I am thinking that something like this might be good if, for lack of funds, we have to release the prison population. For those who are ‘unregenerate’ … to use an old-time term … work camps might be set up or ‘rough and tumble’ work might be provided as an alternative to imprisonment, at greatly less than the minimum wage. This topic I discussed in a little more detail here …

Link: “Ought the United States, like North Korea, Have Forced Labor?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 21 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cQw ..

A Stage One Consideration in Employing California’s Homeless at Less Than the Minimum Wage

Here is a Stage One consideration: Let’s try to figure out some way to get around the minimum wage, for people who are unhomed, and who are receiving extra social services, in the event the United States government is not able to participate, here in California, in ameliorating the situation, and easing the social unrest.

For instance, could we offer something more akin to prison labor … voluntary labor, and a very small wage, in exchange for housing and food and medical care? Could we offer that, in camps especially set up for that?

What would be the long-term situation with regard to those that California cannot now find work for at minimum wage, and who must find work? If employment at less than minimum wage in exchange for social services were to be offered as a temporary, short-term Phase One, then what would be Phases Two and Three?

THOUGHTS ON SLOWING THE SPREAD OF HIV AND AIDS IN PRISONS

On Isolating HIV-Positive Prison Populations in Cell Blocks, Together with HIV-Positive Prison Guards

In United States prisons, HIV tests might be used to separate the HIV-positive prison populations … and the HIV-positive prison guards … physically, from those prisoners and guards who are HIV-negative. These tests need to be performed every 6 months, as I understand it, and also one month after possible exposure to the virus. HIV tests might be made routine in prison medical facilities, not only for the safety of prisoners and guards, but also for the sake of the infectable law-abiding populations upon whom prisoners might prey, either as prostitutes or as sexual predators, after their release.

Conjugal Visits

I think that, to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst United States prison populations, we ought to consider allowing conjugal or significant other visits in our federal prisons, and in those state prisons that currently do not do so.

Conjugal visits might lead to less intercourse amongst inmates, and less intercourse between inmates and prison guards, so that HIV might spread more slowly amongst the prison population. I feel that conjugal visits might also lead to less violence amongst prisoners.

Such a policy also might help prisoners who have been in long-time-paired relationships to preserve those relationships while imprisoned. It might help families stay together through the financial hardship of imprisonment of a parent, and that might positively affect community life.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF IMMIGRANTS TO THE UNITED STATES, COMPARED TO THAT IN CHINA

I have been perusing the “CIA World Factbook” online …

Link: “World Factbook,” by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ ..

… and have found it full of information pertinent to forestalling social unrest in California. For instance, from my reading, it seems to me that the human trafficking of immigrants to China from North Korea in our lifetime is, in some ways, analogous to the human trafficking of immigrants to the United States from Mexico.

How China Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from North Korea

Apparently, there are masses of people in North Korea, whom the government forces into forced labor in China …

“… North Korea does not fully comply with minimum standards for the elimination of [human] trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so; the government continued to participate in human trafficking through its use of domestic forced labor camps and the provision of forced labor to foreign governments through bilateral contracts; officials did not demonstrate any efforts to address human trafficking through prosecution, protection, or prevention measures; no known investigations, prosecutions, or convictions of trafficking offenders or officials complicit in trafficking-related offenses were conducted; the government also made no efforts to identify or protect trafficking victims and did not permit NGOs to assist victims (2015) …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in personshttps://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Korean people also may flee to China of their own free will so as to escape starvation …

“… risking arrest, imprisonment, and deportation, tens of thousands of North Koreans cross into China to escape famine, economic privation, and political oppression … –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … subheading: Disputes – International https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Those types of labor available to trafficked peoples sometimes may be beneath the level of misery that is acceptable here in the United States …

Link: “Trafficking in Persons Report June 2017,” by United States of America Department of State … https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=801874This is a pdf download.

It might be prostitution. It might be illegal activities such as theft. It might be begging. They might be held by gangs that are ‘beneath the law’ and forced to be members of those gangs. This, to me, is unacceptable.

How the United States Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from Mexico

The situation with immigrants from North Korean to China is analogous, in some regards, to the situation with immigrants from Mexico to the United States. Immigrants from Mexico are not forced by the United States government into inhumane kinds of labor, but they may find themselves in those kinds of situations … living In dug-out caves in the Earth, for instance. And doing seasonal, migrant labor. Or young women or children may find themselves forced into lives of prostitution by pimps.

One thing we might look at, going forward, is how job training might be offered new immigrants, here in the United States, so as to broaden the scope of job opportunities for which they are eligible. This type of job training is doubly beneficial: It helps raise the living standard of immigrants; and it helps lessen the spiritual burden of human trafficking in the United States and uplift our nation through good works in our community.

The philanthropy we offer those caught in the throes of human trafficking is a kindness we offer our children as well, for they will look forward to a better educated community through whose informed choices may be sculpted a brighter tomorrow for all America.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, I feel that Los Angeles in particular, due to such stressors as homelessness and released felons, faces the spectre of social unrest at present. What to do? I feel we must look at what other countries do when faced with these stressors. We must not turn away from innovative solutions simply because we feel they are beneath us, as Americans.

I feel it is because we feel this: that the lesser good we are able to provide the homeless and released felons is beneath us, and unworthy of them, that we have found ourselves for ten years to be in stalemate as a city.

We are unable to provide the level of benefits and care that has been, with hopeful optimism, voted into California law. Massive problems lie before us, and have done so for 10 years now. California is a Sanctuary State for those fleeing from downright extermination in the crueler states of our great Union.

Though we are that to many, we have not the funds to help those seeking sanctuary in the manner afforded the homeless, the helpless, those seeking shelter, food, and work in days of old.

Here in Los Angeles we must make bold to provide what we may to those who have nothing at all. Though it be against the laws of our nation, and against those of our State, we must do what we can. We must offer what we may. We must open our hearts, still our doubts, and come up with sensible, novel solutions to the new problems that lie before us.

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

Restorative Justice . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 18 August 2015

Dear Ones,

Here is what I have found out about Restorative Justice, a concept that I feel holds great promise for new life on New Earth:

There is a global organization, Centre for Justice and Reconciliation, that promotes restorative justice to bring healing and balance to both victims and criminals after a crime has been committed. The result is healing, rather than blame and punishment, for the community.

Centre for Justice and Reconciliation is a program of prison fellowship that is affiliated with 125 nations. See … Link: “What Is Restorative justice,” at Centre for Justice and Reconciliation … http://restorativejustice.org/ ..

Here is a description of restorative justice in action, amongst the Babemba Tribe of Africa … Link: “Babema Positive Punishment,” by Global Christian Center … https://globalchristiancenter.com/devotions/teen-devotions/33382-december-11-babemba-positive-punishment ..

I have added the Centre to my Ascension Resources page, under the subheading “Global Consciousness.” It shares space in that category with the Global Coherence Initiative … https://www.heartmath.org/gci/ ..

Ought Law Enforcement Have Sex with Jailed Sex Workers? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 19 July 2016
Prior title: “Law Enforcement and Prostitution”

  • RAPE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OPINED TO BE A WAY TO ‘SETTLE DOWN’ PRISONERS
  • POSSIBLE COMPROMISE OF JUSTICE THROUGH LAW ENFORCEMENT HAVING A HANKERING FOR TALENTED SEX WORKERS
  • THE LAW AND SEX WORKERS: SUGGESTIONS FOR BETTER OUTCOMES

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This blog had to do with astral stories I heard while on a summer visit to Durango, Colorado, in 2015.

I note that astral stories have a ‘placeless’ attribute, as there were also astral stories of sheriff hijinks at the time, that I thought might have to do with Durango, and later thought most likely had to do with the nightly news about the trial of Former Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca for obstructing FBI investigation into Los Angeles County jail abuse …

Link: “Lee Baca,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Baca ..

Because of the ‘ungeographic’ nature of astral stories, there is no knowing what part of the world this blog might apply to, although legend has it that Durango … like Dodge City, Kansas; Tombstone, Arizona;  and Bandera, Texas… is a rip-roaring Wild West town full of cowboys and dance hall girls.

Link: “Wild Western Towns in the USA,” at Grizzly Rose … https://www.grizzlyrose.com/wild-western-towns/ ..

That is the prelude. Now, down to my thoughts on the astral stories that were circulating in 2015, to do with sexual intercourse between law enforcement and sex workers that are in jail …

RAPE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OPINED TO BE A WAY TO ‘SETTLE DOWN’ PRISONERS

I would like to propose a hypothetical scenario in which law enforcement arrests prostitutes, both male and female, and then ‘settles them down’ for a stay in jail through having sex with them … this being a proposed way to prevent them from causing trouble in lock up.

What would be the outcome of such a hypothetical scenario?

As prostitution is an occupation that is illegal, prostitutes, both male and female, would likely be arrested over and over again, as they nightly solicit. This would result in law enforcement having sex with them over and over again.

POSSIBLE COMPROMISE OF JUSTICE THROUGH LAW ENFORCEMENT HAVING A HANKERING FOR TALENTED SEX WORKERS

The human mind is divided into two parts, the “Lower Mental Body” and the “Higher Mental Body.” (See my blog categories by these names.) When we have intercourse, astral bonding takes place between our Lower Mental Body and that of the person or persons we have sex with. The more we have sex with the same person, or the more exuberant the experience, the stronger the astral bond.

As the human mind is, during the Awakening, still in the process of becoming unified into Cosmic or Universal Mind, the Lower Mental Body (also known as the unconscious mind) still acts … well … unconsciously, involuntarily. On its own.

When the Lower Mental Body is astrally bonded to another Lower Mental Body, decisions that might otherwise be in line with our higher judgment are, more likely than not, made with bias toward our sexual bonding.

And so, the outcome of corrective behavior that involves intercourse with prostitutes is an unwitting bond with, and bias toward, the prostitute population of correctional facilities. This can play out, unintentionally, in ways averse to law enforcement’s mandate to protect the community against criminals and preserve the peace.

In long-term correctional institutions, intercourse by law enforcement with inmates, whether they are prostitutes or otherly, results in the same sort of unintentional compromise of law enforcement’s rational decision-making process.

THE LAW AND SEX WORKERS: SUGGESTIONS FOR BETTER OUTCOMES

For this reason, I suggest that law enforcement consider arm’s length in dealing with prisoners in correctional facilities.

With regard to prostitution, I suggest jailing the sex trade together with their johns, in the same cell and for the same duration. This might be a useful alternative means of maintaining a peaceful inmate population.

Alternatively, prostitution, which is a victimless crime, might be legalized. Whom we choose to have sex with, it seems to me, is a free will issue, and a moral decision that might be left to people individually.

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

P.S. This blog once had a lengthy postscript that I have broken out as a separate blog …

Dear Ones,

This is about the two tenets of life on this planet: Free Will and the All. Also discussed: Having a ‘masterplan’. Does the end justify the means? There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I would just like to talk to you a little bit today about the two tenets of life on this planet, which are: Free will and the All. Starting with free will …

Free Will on Planet Earth

One of the most interesting features of this planet … because of the 11,000-year intervals that it spends not within the Photon Belt of the Pleiades … is the diversity of choices that are available here because of the Soul wounding that occurs; the closing down of the axiatonal lines of Light; the tangles that develop in the Body of Light; inability to connect with the Star Library in Alpha Centauri; and a general disconnect from our star brethren of many different civilizations and cultures, that leads us to a foreshortened notion of history, and of our choices during these long Ages of Darkness, from one of which we have just emerged.

We have these many choices, basically based on what Patanjali calls Soul ignorance. So something may look very good to us, as a choice, and in fact lead us away from an understanding of our Soul purpose and our Soul wisdom. It may lead us out of alignment with God, and with the All (which I will be discussing in a minute). This happens because we have free will.

There are beings that settled on this planet that further the possibilities of Duality during the Dark Ages. They do not do well here during the Ages of Light; my understanding is that they are shunted off to astral negative worlds and planets in other constellations during the times of Light. But they are here for a purpose during the times of Light; and that is to increase the possibility of Soul learning through duality.

Angel on One Shoulder, and Devil on the Other? You may have seen those pictures of people with an angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other shoulder, each whispering into one of the person’s ears, of which this image is reminiscent …

Diversity of Life on Earth. That is just a visualization of the choices available through duality. But it also has within it the two different types of beings that are here on Earth. We have the Angelic Realm … and the Devic Realm is part of that. The nature spirits are part of the Angelic Realm as well; although they comprise a separate, very varied, Devic Kingdom.

Then we have the ifrits and the jinn; and the demon world. All of those are based on the notion of power over others. It can be very compelling, very interesting to choose that, because it seems that, in the short run, there is something really important in it. And so, people do make those choices during the Ages of Darkness.

Ascension Casts Our Free Will Choices in Stark Relief. Right now they are emerging from that. One of the features of the Ascension process … the Ascension into the Age of Light … is that the choice between Dark and Light becomes much more dramatic. There is a purpose for that: It is so that it will become very apparent to people that they have that choice. And so, people will be choosing either something very dramatic, like serial killing or suicide, or all kinds of things that would before have been completely impossible for them to think of, or they will be very strongly choosing alignment with the Divine. That is because nothing is definite right now; everything is in process, in flux. And a kind of mental chaos is occurring all over Earth, as people come back into their powers and their Ascension skills, and begin to realize that they are one with everything.

So these choices are available: We can choose to go off-world, to astral negative planets, along with the Demon Realm, which is there to help us make these decisions and choices, along with the Angelic Realm. Or we can choose to stay on Ascended Earth, and that is a completely different choice.

Note well: These are ideational choices … to do with astral or dreamtime stories that will be co-creating the New Reality. In almost every instance, they are not about ‘acting out’ these themes in the physical world.

Consequentialism: The Notion That the Ends Justify the Means. One of the things that is coming up right now, has to do with this free will choice. It has to do with the notion … kind of a Himler or Hitler notion … that the ends justify the means. Remember, Hitler had a very beautiful notion about a master race on Earth … about a master plan, and how everything was going to be better because he was going to eliminate all the bad things. And he was going to do that through killing people that he thought were inferior.

This thought that the ends justify the means is something to consider, because we confront it every day, in our daily lives. I will say to somebody: It would be even better if you lived in the country.

And they will say: I can’t because I have to make a living!

And this is just one example of the constant ‘I can’ts’ and ‘I won’ts’ that do not allow people to accumulate more Light. Instead, they want to accumulate more Darkness. It depends on the person … some people are fine in the city.

Do the ends justify the means? What is it that we really want? Do we want to accomplish our Soul mission, and follow our Soul purpose? Or do we want to do something for ourselves, for our family, that will not allow us live to our highest Light?

Is it worth it, say, to do something extremely bad, like what happened in the concentration camps, and is happening in many places, right now, because of the Ascension process?

Is it ok to do that, if it justifies some high cause, such as keeping someone alive that we really love, for instance … because prices are really high right now.

Or is it ok to do that kind of work because we have to pay the rent, and rents are very high? You know? … the kind of work that tears down other people’s good, or competes with other people, instead of bringing on harmony of the Universe … that kind of work.

Choices: Service to Self, Service to Ingroup; Service to the World. Are we willing to injure other people so that our ingroup can be ok? Well in past ages, in the Age of Darkness, the answer was definitely ‘yes’. The answer was: The people in my family are more important than anyone else in the worldThe people in my village will help support me against the barbarian hordes, and I will help them out too … Like that, right?

And people that were considered to be the outgroup, in the old days did not even have a chance. You sacrificed the outgroup; you kept the ingroup. And the concept of in-or-outgroup was the thing you really cared about.

The history of kings, in Europe, is a saga about that. Even in their own families they would kill, just to maintain their own personal highest welfare … Killed their brothers and sisters over and over again, so that there would be no contenders for the throne.

This is an extreme example of free will, and choosing on the basis, not of society or civilization, or the upliftment of the world, but instead, choosing only for oneself.

Life Review. I am asking you to look at that today: How is your life being lived? What is it that you truly want? Do you want to align with God? Or do you want to take on a purpose that has to do with your personal desires and needs, or those of your family, or those of someone that you really cherish; and do you want to just say: To heck with what society teaches about getting along with other people … about things like the Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife … and all those things like that; those things that were hammered out in the old, tribal days, as ways for society to continue onward.

What is it that you really want? Do you want the ends to be more important than the means? Or do you want the harmony of the All?

The All and the Eternal Now

There Is No Ingroup. And so now we are coming down to the harmony of the All. That has to do with ingroup – outgroup, and the way that we think about the world. As it turns out, there is no ingroup; there is no outgroup. There is no special treatment for people that are very rich, or very powerful, or who think very well of themselves for no particular reason at all.

Ascension Skills: True Compassion. Here in the noosphere we feel in our own physical bodies, as the Ascension proceeds, the suffering, the anguish of what was once called the ‘huddled masses’; of the people in prison; of the people who are dying in hospitals; of the newborn children, who do not yet know where or what is going on.

We are that. This is an Ascension skill that will change everyone’s mind about ingroups and outgroups, and the means and the ends. We are that. And far more than these beings known as humankind, in this colony called Earth.

Interspecies Communication. There are many other peoples here. There are many other beings here: Four-footed, two-footed, and feathered beings; all kinds of beings, here on Earth. And there are many more beings amongst the stars, and amongst our ancestors, and in our future kin, all of which are One, in the Eternal Now, which is the All.

Enough lectures! [waves] You all take care. Love you lots.
