I believe in synchronicity. Whether one takes this as proof that energy follows thought or believes that synchronicity is merely a chance event is perhaps best adjudicated by the work of the Carl Jung who early in his career believed in what he called acausal synchronicity. Later, he changed his position and wrote that synchronicity is causal. Let me give a few for instances.
Let's say I am thinking about radiation. An email arrives from someone who has been weak and tired but lacking a diagnosis. The odds favor that the question was directed to my inbox because my mind was preoccupied with the latest news from Fukushima or my reformulation of the radiation remedies. If the author of the email happens also to live in Eureka, California, or is downwind from the San Onofre Reactor, there is a very good "chance" that the paths were crossing at that moment because we are a match.
If I sometimes jump around, it could be because I am picking up questions before they are asked. A clairvoyant psychologist in an audience once railed at me for answering questions before they were asked because I am so intuitive. She wanted her hand to be recognized, but she hadn't put it up yet. My Ayurvedic teacher, Dr. Shrikrishna Kashyap, was also like this and we both have a hard time sticking to the prepared notes because we are so sensitive to the commotion that occurs just before a question is formalized in the mind of the querent.
Anyway, there are lots more examples. Let's say I was debating about what to write next and the next batch of emails contained a link to a must watch youtube video. Moments later, another email arrives with a petition to sign. The internet makes these events happen faster, and it's clear there is nothing random about the timing.
The Radiation Crisis
Diving deeper into the present crisis, Japan set a 100 Bq per kilogram limit on the level of radiation permitted in food that is to be sold. No problem! If the food tests too high, it can be blended with something that tested lower until the mixture passes. If this doesn't work, there is always the export market. The U.S. does not have a "limit", merely a recommendation that 1200 Bq/kg be considered as the threshold between safe and unsafe . . . of course, there is no safe level of radiation since no radiation is safe and all exposures are cumulative.
Petitions are now being drafted that would set 5 Bq as the limit in the U.S. Testing food for such is an almost insurmountable challenge, absolutely insurmountable if the will is weak — or the mercantile opposition cares more about the bottom line than health. In any event, if the current initiative were to succeed, it would mandate public databases in which soil contamination is also reported. This would obviously occur only if the quality of our environment were to become more important than the profits of agroindustrial giants. The problem is that a standard that is protective is almost impossible to guarantee in our present world.
A becquerel is the quantity of radiation released by one nuclide in a second. . . . in a second! Though the amount of radiation produced by this disintegration is tiny, the effects can be serious. What really happens?
The radiation comes in contact with something that surrenders an electron. The matter that was thus affected loses its negative charge and becomes positive. This is called ionization.
In the case of humans or any other living entity, the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation are catastrophic. Though official organizations insist that exposure is dose dependent, there are countless studies suggesting that a single large dose is often better tolerated than an ongoing lesser dose. In any event, the exposures (and risks) are, as noted, cumulative so it's important to put aside the propaganda and understand more clearly what is really happening as a result of fallout.
When exposed to radiation, a distinction can be made between what is released and what is absorbed. Most of the radiation that is absorbed is absorbed through the food supply. It may be on the food, such as particulates on leafy green vegetables; or, it could be in the food as in the case of animal products where the animal ingested radioactive material while grazing.
Each type of radiation is a bit different, but none is safe. For instance, cesium 137 affects heart rhythm. Cesium 137 did not exist before the nuclear age, i.e., it is completely man-made. It has a serious effect on everyone, especially children, this at a level of only 10-30 Bq per kilogram of body weight. At 60 Bq per kilogram, serious (and supposedly irreversible) problems occur, including heart pathologies, hormone imbalances, and other diseases that are normally only associated with aging, such as hypertension. Cesium 137 mimics potassium and this can help us to understand how the electrical signals affecting the heart are rendered chaotic.
Now, to be practical, let us look at milk testing in the San Francisco Bay Area. During much of the post-Fukushima era, levels exceeded EPA limits, meaning that accumulation would have occurred for those consuming dairy products. However, the alarms were not limited to the Bay Area: Vermont milk also tested quite high . . . and the issue is compounded when we take into consideration daily consumption of unsafe food products. In short, the tests on a particular day do not guarantee that similar risks did not also occur on other days. Yes, the risks are higher when there is rain but sooner or later, all pastures are exposed to rain. The radiation just falls on the plants and is absorbed into the soil, resulting in less nutritional benefit and more risk. In short, forget the idea there were a couple of really bad days in April 2011 because the fallout continues to this day..
This post is taking a long time to write because of interruptions, but we have another example of synchronicity.
It is perhaps nearing the time when I should announce my intention to withdraw from all the tasks that presently consume my time so that I can devote myself to finding solutions for the issues we face. I don't have a viable transition plan, but I am trying to find one.
In the meantime, it is probably appropriate to mention that radioactive iodine has a very short half life so while many people have already been exposed to Iodine 131, cesium is a bigger concern now. In the next few weeks, I will be releasing some new formulas that are cardioprotective and thyroid protective, but really, we all need to pay a lot of attention to the source of our foods as well as the variety. For instance, hummus is a very nice food made from garbanzo beans. It has high nutritional value and you can send me your recipes and I'll post them online!
