But of course! We need to be safe from terrorists and perverts! Monitor all them down! Install keyloggers into the EFIs! Send telemetry data! Steal every password out there!... There's nothing ANYONE can do anymore. Our only hope is that the economic establishment kicks the bucket sooner than later.

Ah, and something else. No matter how hard you will try to monitor a person and know their incentives and plans; there's nothing you can do if this specific individual decides that his life matters no more for him. You can't fight such a person; let alone a whole army...

Yes, yes there is something that can be done.

Torture tends to be a better decider than free will when it comes to matters of life and, if it matters.

Starvation. Chemical lobotomy. Chemical sterilization. All three of these have profound effects, especially on a whole army.

fyi, I am experiencing fever, cough, and continuous very stinky violent farting (roughly more than once per minute).

I believe this may be a Herxheimer reaction due to production of toxins in my gut instead of an another infection. Apparently no way for me to know if this is a die off of bad bacteria, or a increased colonization of bad bacteria. I am hopeful this is a turning point towards cure, but I've been hopeful far too many times before. I guess stay alert for sepsis. ER isn't more than 20 minutes from here.

My eyes are burning from the fever. I believe this is Herxheimer because the burning of the eyes started before the cough, after I ramped up the omega-3, whey isolate protein shakes, Kombucha finally brewed correctly, sweet potato for carbs. Also really pushed myself yesterday in the gym. I ran 2.05 kms in 10:30 mins in the morning with the first mile at 8:45 pace. So that means the last portion was at a near 7 minute mile pace. Then at the gym I ran 8 laps on a rubberized oval that is 200 meters in distance (so 9 meters short of a mile) in 8:20 minutes and the oval rises to an elevation of about 5 meters so not flat. Then I did my barbel workout (but much, much weaker than before the fasting). My weight is only 65 kg, so I can imagine immediately after the fasting in late August I was 60 kg and had lost 12 kg or so.

I ran 1.9 kms this morning at a slower pace not feeling well from the cough and not yet realizing I had a fever. So then the fever came on really strong after that and by now I am weak and dizzy.

Pretty much unable to work in this condition, although I did complete a linear probe hash table today (more efficient than bucketized Cuckoo hash for low loads, i.e. when RAM is abundant relative to non-instant transaction rate). I may work on the thread-safe version of it now, before I sleep. I was sleeping all afternoon and woke an hour ago at 10pm to drink water.

http://healingnaturallybybee.com/false-information-about-die-off-symptoms-herxheimer-reactions/

Quote
The term “die-off symptoms” is commonly used to describe symptoms and reactions that occur when large numbers of candida/fungi, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens [viruses, bacteria, etc. that cause disease] are killed off in the body, releasing a lot of toxins into the system at one time by antibiotics or antifungals, etc.

Such symptoms are described as “flu-like”, the feeling that one gets when parasites, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens are killed in the body and being cleaned out of the body. These “flu-like” symptoms are also cleansing (detoxing) reactions, caused by the body isolating and getting rid of toxins.

These symptoms include increased mucus secretions in all mucus membranes (nose, throat, sinuses, lungs, vagina, intestines, etc.) and muscle or joint aches and pains, headaches, brain fog, digestion disturbances and so on. It’s like that “bad all over feeling” you had during a bout with the flu.

Such die-off symptoms are “Herxheimer reactions,” also called Herx reactions.

I do have a lot phlegm when I cough. Increased mucus generation would be ideal, since that is what I need to restore the lining in my digestive tract.

@TPTB_need_war, have you read the book The Bulletproof Diet?

Check it out, there is a lot of similarities with what you're writing. There is talk of inflammation, sweet potatoes, white rice, grassfed meat...and many other things in that book. Or is that where you're getting all of this perhaps?

https://youtu.be/b88VJpQwa7U?t=550

That is excellent. I suggest everyone listen to that. Yes indeed he and I are considering similar issues w.r.t. to food.

I am eating coconut and he is concentrating the C8 (medium-chain fatty acid) and putting it in coffee that is certified not to contain mold:





http://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/the-bulletproof-diet-simplistic-invalid-and-unscientific/

Quote
The result is a diet high in saturated fat; one which holds that red meat is good, brown rice is bad, cuts out fruit, and that is coming to a bookshop near you on December 2 in the form of a publication called The Bulletproof Diet.

The only problem is, it flies in the face of everything we’ve been taught about what’s good for us and what isn’t. And perhaps unsurprisingly, the science behind it is questionable — at best.

...

He also advocates white rice over brown because brown rice, Asprey says, has more anti-nutrients in it.

“These grains didn’t evolve to be eaten as a food source. They evolved to reproduce; germinate. They cover themselves in naturally occurring anti-nutrients or pesticides. Brown rice has stuff that irritates our gut and that’s not the case with white rice.”



Happy the continuous stinky violent evictions of gas have finally calmed down. That was literally every minute or less over the past day or so.

I may still have a mild fever (no thermometer) but may feel better than yesterday (just woke up so not sure yet).

Since yesterday I've eaten some Mung beans (Asian lentils) with rice at two meals. As cited up thread, these are low in phytates and saponins, plus we soaked them overnight until they started to sprout, cooked them for an hour, and skimmed off the soap film from the top as they cooked. After cooking, topped with those leafy greens that grow wild in the Philippines mentioned up thread. Very delicious, tastes buttery, and with rice then nearly a complete food. But what I like most if they seems to coat and calm my gut. I feel good while I am eating them. Love the taste and texture.

Perhaps I am still low energy. May lay back down again.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antinutrient

Saponins:


Phytates:



Omega-3 (anti-inflammatory) vs. Omega-6 (inflammatory):



It is possible that gluten is not the culprit with grain flours but instead fructans (FODMAPs). Or it may be that the gluten is a protein that our body can't easily break down to amino acids thus an anti-nutrient. In either case perhaps predigesting the bread by making sour dough bread may resolve the issue. Note how low in phytates above the sour dough bread is. Again the generative essence theory being that rice is only grain that has all its protein and vitamins in the hull which can be removed and other grains the kernel is permeated with these so other grains must be fermented thus predigested by bacteria before eaten by humans:

I think I will have a go at this bulletproof diet, I think my shit diet is the cause of my lethargy and loss of interest in activities I used to love, I still love them but can't find the enthusiasm to do them.

Will try this, thanks.

The distrust of the Russian governmental lobby towards BTC, truly puzzles my mind on whether they know something that we don't, or they assume it's a US secret service creation and simply afraid of it. In any case they seem to be a beast on their own (afaic TPTB lobby) since Putin several times has interfered to their globalization initiative (which Angela Merkel seems to be an important asset).

I'm still a bit sceptic on this (ie: BTC is somehow tighten up with the USg) but as previously said here, I don't rule out the possibility. I guess "when the soup is shaken, the potatoes will float" as my late grandmother used to say...

Chaos could be a form of intelligence we cannot yet understand its complexity.

It's also very possible that the Russian government is just back at its old ways -- banning freedoms which they might not understand.  On the other hand, perhaps they have found an "NSA trapdoor" or such in Bitcoin, although that strikes me as unlikely.  Very unlikely.

To me, Russia is again heading towards becoming totalitarian (Putin was KGB and still acts that way), no way I would put a kopeck into Russia.  Unless it is a listed stock that you could trade & unload in a minute.

They want bitcoin to disappear just like every other government wants. Printing fiat money is their primary way to remain in power.

Oh, it's a very possible prospect that they will be left behind the BTC train because they don't understand it, but alas, I don't rule out that the rest of the Russians don't know what's at stake here. Some of the most prominent companies around the world are in Russian hands. They surely are not dumbs! I also happen to understand that it's nothing but pure coincidence that prior the 1st October where according to Martin Armstrong all hell will break loose there was a UN summit where the Pope was present, while at the same time Putin was opening a new Mosque against all of his beliefs and public intolerance!

Yes, there is a possibility all these are nothing but what they seem they are... What are the odds?  Roll Eyes

*puts on his tinfoil hat*

Since the decision making of this law is being deferred to the central bank it may not pass, pretend they are pro freedom/innovation and they will instead exploit the flaws in bitcoin, claw it back later attacking it's centralized nature.

Russia seems stuck in the old world in some areas and fully onboard with the NWO in others, let's see which way it goes.

Russia is doing as it was told to do. TPTB understand the greatest threat from crypto (which they created) would be if it formed a true side economy. And the greatest risk of that they see is Silk Road and other illicit markets. Russians are big traders in illicit markets and thus BTC won't be legal in Russia until BTC has reached the point where all block chain transactions are regulated.

TPTB created BTC because they wanted to drive leverage against existing financial systems towards a public register of all transactions and to prevent resistance to the wave of digital currency, which they want because of it is part of the way to track everything in the Technocracy of the new world order wherein everyone is a slave to the corporations that own the world:

TPTB

I have seen that article and list of the 50 largest companies controlling everything.  For years actually, I have been sent links to Dr. Glattfelder's work and once even tried to thoroughly read it (it's a long paper, and quite technical).

Take a good look at your second link, Forbes says that these are asset managers and custodians in some cases, not owners.  Yes, these companies (esp. the financial) are linked to many others, including manufacturers.

Yet, there are two problems I have:

1) In ALL the pieces I have seen (inc. the two links you sent), I have only seen the top 50, not the top 147 nor the 1318 studied...  A quote from the New Scientist link:

"...Driffill feels 147 is too many to sustain collusion."

2) The below link was at the bottom of your Forbes link, which suggests that asset OWNERS would be more key to CONTROL:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericsavitz/2011/10/24/retort-the-147-companies-that-run-the-world-theyre-you/

*   *   *

I do recognize the power of the Top 50, but I see no evidence of an overwhelming control of the West nor the world.

Note that I do not deny the possibility of hidden collusion.  But, I doubt that BARCLAYS is the most powerful corporation in the world, most interconnected (by Glattfelder et al), sure.

I would like to see all 1318 (or even the 147) to see if any of the bearing manufacturers are on it (perhaps SKF of Sweden, the rest are likely too small).  

Despite several search attempts over the years, I have not been able to find more than the Top 50.  If you could find such a link where I could not, I would be much obliged, as I could read it and think about it in a more informed way.

OROBTC, just take as one prime example how Goldman Sachs has been to a great extent running Europe. They installed all their key people in positions of power and even did the financial wizardry to hide Greece's deficits for years. Even the head of the Central Bank of India is a former IMF/Goldman.

Next example look at Monsanto and Codex Alimentarius.

Doesn't take too many examples to get a clear picture of the large corporations in control of the world.

Goldman Sachs is No. 18 on the list.  A quick review of the Top 50 did not show Monsanto.  BARCLAYS is No. 1...

But, yes, G-S is extremely powerful, but not because of the Swiss notion of interconnectedness.

Monsanto is also very powerful.  They produce...  Their products may be bad, they may have a bad agenda, but that is why I would like to see more than the Top 50.
