“Can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things? Giving birth and nourishing, having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control: this is the supreme virtue.” (Lao Tzu)
We are a diverse, multi-cultural world. We are all a part of a global community that we all help shape…We are one people that cannot be separated by religion, colour, creed or race.
You may worship as you choose, but as soon as you infringe on the religious freedom of others, there’s hell to pay… Equality is a two-sided coin. That means Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and Muslims have to respect each other with equal measure. There is no ‘one true religion’…There are only paths to self-realisation. Paths that we should be able to choose freely ourselves, according to what resonates deep within us.
Islam does not differentiate. Like the Christians of old or the Sith…Islamics deal only in absolutes. Since the religious system abandoned concepts that allow critical thinking and independent judgement, it has become a religion of genocide. An archaic, outdated system that still strives to take all things for themselves and rewrite our history to make it theirs.
How long can a religion based on femicide last? How long until there’s only a few hundred thousand women? How long until there’s just a handful? In every religious state, women are prized possessions. Yet, in those that view them as second class citizens, a large majority of women are kills before they even reach the end of puberty. In more civilised areas, they are given to suitors as children and are simply discarded or divorced once they are too old for their acquired tastes. Generally, this happens between the age of 15-16. Approx. 4-6 years after they were forced into a sexual relationship.
In 2013, men outnumbered women on the planet by roughly 58 million, according to the World Bank. In January 2015, men outnumbered women by 60 million. In fact, China has around 50 million more men than women, and India 43 million. This accounts for 76% of the male surplus worldwide. Russia have it totals up as a global excess of 60 million. Countries in the Arabian peninsula are the most unbalanced. (Qatar was is of the most extreme examples, with women making up less than one in four of the population)
Only one year later, this dynamic has radically changed. One year later, men now outnumber women by approx. 110 million, as a result of millions of unnecessary deaths, involving women. (Due to the lack of statistical data in certain countries, this number represents a gross estimate of how the global population has changed from the end of 2015 to the beginning of 2016) This radical shift has many contributing reasons, such as the preference of men over women, which leads to gender selective abortions and female infanticide. However, the root cause behind this worsening gender imbalance, as a whole, is femicide (which includes honour killings, executions, massacres, stonings, beheadings etc.)
In Arab countries, men heavily outnumber women as a control factor. The protocols that women are not permitted to leave their homes unaccompanied were originally intended for the use of religious scripture during wartime. It has no use outside of the Jihad, which leads us to my next point. During an Islamic takeover, women represent the future generations of the enemy. The customs of radical Islam is to rape and kill or force women to breed in captivity. Regardless of their skin-colour or country of origin, the freedom of women is at great risk with the rising influence of Islam over the West.
Before the migrant crisis, every second murder of a woman (in Germany) was committed by a spouse. Every fourth women is suffering from or experienced domestic violence… The migrant crisis is bringing all of this to light by showing us where we are headed, if we do not get our priorities straight. Yes, women have equality in the West, but we still earn less…Our vote is ignored just as intently as that of a man. Worse yet, we are abandoned even by our gender.
Each time we stand up for the religious freedom of Islam, as women, we are betraying our own kind. In other words, we dishonour and disrespect the heritage of every woman, who has come before us. Women, such as Curie and Nightingale, made astonishingly great strikes for womankind, and how have we repaid them? By taking all the freedom that we have fought for, and using it to abolish our democratic rights!
How many women have died to protect the freedom of all women? Not as many as are about to once again.
Historically, each time men outnumber women across the globe, there are socio-economic repercussions. What accounts for this current growing imbalance is the surplus of young, unmarried male migrants. Not to mention that Islamic leaders across the world are encouraging 4+ children. Countries, in which contraception and childlessness are punishable offences, greatly contribute to this massive population growth by adding to numbers that are already unsustainable.
Hypothetical: A friend of mine asked me about a week ago, “what would happen if radical Islam were to take over the planet?” The global number of women would be significantly reduced within less than a year. During the first year of a religious takeover, the casualties would be extremely high. Millions, if not billions would easily lose their lives for being outnumbered from the beginning. In the second, there would be a period of coercing conformity. Again, millions would die for either failing to do so, being unable to and from general maltreatment. Religious commitment can be very much like a compulsion… It wouldn’t matter if they knew that they’d be killing the last woman on Earth, they wouldn’t be able to help themselves. It’s that obsessive compulsive nature and lack of forethought, which could drive the number of (men and) women down to less than a million in very short time. Not to mention the global institutionalisation of peadophilia as well as underage marriage that’d contribute to the death of billions annually. If that level of femicide continued unchecked on a global scale, in less than 3 generations, there would only be a handful of women left…until the point where the majority of men could spend an entire lifetime without ever having laid eyes on a woman.
As stated in one of my earliest posts, an overwhelming majority of women under Sharia Law do not reach the end of puberty. Often they do not reach an age, at which their body can handle pregnancy. Simply because some women menstruate at a younger age does not mean their bodies are equipped to deal with pregnancy. Maturing is a complex process for men and women alike. In fact, the rate of complications is astoundingly high. That notwithstanding, the earliest age to facilitate a pregnancy with a manageable success-rate is 14, but the death-toll in medically unequipped countries is considerable in comparison to the West. As a side-note, in a rape culture, medical services are more equipped to deal with underage pregnancy. Considering the number of 14 year olds that abort or carry the child to term in the United Kingdom is the highest in Europe already without an unrestricted migrant flow.
Benefits Fraud: All over the world, pensioners receive payments without the need to attend the. Jobcentre or Welfare offices on a weekly basis. As decent as that may be for an elderly lady with only one decent working hip, there’s only one problem: Anyone can sneak in, dispose of the body and keep cashing the checks…And this is exactly what has been happening few and far between. Contrary to popular belief in Western societies, as the age of a sex offender goes down the age of the victim goes up. This often does not apply to crimes of opportunity.
Child Abduction: Since the surge of economic migrants, the number of attempted and actual abductions on playgrounds, school properties and the open road have risen exponentially. Do not let your child or teenager go out on their own! And even if you accompany them, anticipate trouble. The current locations to beware of are playgrounds, schools, swimming pools, beaches, hiking paths, mountain walkways and other family destinations.
Younger and older generations need to pull together avert more hate crimes aimed towards women. We are mothers, wives, sisters and daughters…and we need to stand together, because deserve the right to be safe inside our homes and step outside our front door without fear of victimisation…without becoming a target of cultural gender-bias.
Over years of working with chronically and/or terminally ill clients has taught me one this without question…We are all responsible for the way we die, for the friends that guide us along the way and our enemies that may hasten our demise. We are the creator of our own life in the way that we conduct ourselves. We often forget that we created and shaped this world according to a particular vision, but images change. We change. At times, what we create backfires and end up with the exact opposite result.
The fact is that we cannot win against nature. We cannot contain, compartmentalise or eradicate it, we must learn to live with it. Our survival depends upon it in more than a thousand ways. Pollution has a death toll that amounts to billions. Cancer, cardiopulmonary obstructive disease, cardiovascular disease and many other conditions are only a byproduct of a deeper root cause: Terra-Forming (this includes automated and genetically modified food production in controlled environments)
It is an old concept that was recently re-termed as ‘geo-engineering’, it implies that the chemicals in the atmosphere, lands and the oceans can ultimately change a planets physical nature. Altering the nature of other plants to support human life has been an ongoing thought since space exploration became a physical reality. However, what this means for us is far less conventional. That which was once lush and green with fresh air becomes an accumulation of toxic fumes that cannot escape and are not absorbed with oceans too acidic to touch or nourish any plant life that we’d recognise.
Reality-Check: During the California drought, residents were miles from water, thirsting to death, while the wealthy minority of the state received lorry-loads of brand-label bottled water. Even evaporating the water would not have removed the pollutants in it, making it too toxic for consumption. This is just an example of what happens during a drought in the modern world. Without an ample supply of food and bottled water, which is never guaranteed when there’s a global shortage, the life-expectancy of the average person drops fast.
In comparison to other celestial bodies, our atmosphere is becoming similar to that of Venus. A rather neglected planet, perhaps even ironic with mankind’s history of suppressing feminine qualities. With 93% of carbon dioxide, some nitrogen, and very little water vapour (00.3%), it serves as the perfect atmosphere for other forms of life. Simply nothing humanoid.
Engineering Planetary Environments
Facing the reality of our situation, we could terra-form other environments or we can fix our own. No alien species will want humans out there, we dissected their people and stole their technology, so postponing that idea isn’t really an option. It’s the only rational choice, we have…Not that it’ll stop some people from trying.
That notwithstanding, an empty, habitable planet would be hard to come by, even outside of our solar system. Mars would only come close to being habitable, if we altered the trajectory of ammonia-rich asteroids that exist in the outer solar system to hit Mars and release ammonia.
“Ammonia probably would last less than a century in the atmosphere, meaning that the impacts would have to continue to be effective. Given that each impact would have a thousand times the energy release of the largest bomb ever exploded, this could be problematic. One possible way around this is that there are bacteria that produce ammonia out of nitrogen and water. If the ammonia atmosphere were set up once and the bacteria put in place, a self-sustaining ecosystem might be possible.”
Collisions with asteroids or comets will provide liquid water via their impact, but the primary purpose of the continued bombardment would be to raise the temperature of Mars by about 4 degrees. However, ammonia rich asteroid collision and use of bacteria to grow a self-sustaining ecosystem that can sustain human life would still be the slower route. One that we could not accomplish before mass extinction.
So, we have gone the full circle back to the problem of the sixth mass extinction. How can we reverse the damage? In practice, we can only do so much. We could re-freeze the ice-caps, but our primary concern is the continued fossil fuel usage and natural DC field disruption. Those two are the lynchpins of pollution. Without them, we are a new level of technology that no longer requires to use of money or weapons.
Hemp for the Planet & Marijuana for the Spirit
Marijuana was America’s number one analgesic for 60 years before the rediscovery of aspirin around 1900. From 1842 to 1900 cannabis made up half of all medicine sold, with virtually no fear of its high. In 1973, the possibility existed that once the active ingredients in cannabis (such as THC Delta-9) were isolated and correct dosages established, cannabis could become a miracle drug. Twenty-nine years would pass, however, before American scientists could begin to even look into cannabis medicine again.
“Our current fossil energy sources also supply about 80% of the solid and airborne pollution which is quickly poisoning the environment of the planet. (See U.S. EPA report 1983-96 on the coming world catastrophe from carbon dioxide imbalance caused by burning fossil fuels). The best and cheapest substitute for these expensive and wasteful energy methods is not wind or solar panels, nuclear, geothermal and the like, but the evenly distributed light of the sun for growing biomass.” (Emperor Wears No Clothes)
Hemp stems are 80% hurds (pulp byproduct after the hemp fibre is removed from the plant). Hemp hurds are 77% cellulose – a primary chemical feed stock (industrial raw material) used in the production of chemicals, plastics and fibre. Depending on which U.S. agricultural report is correct, an acre of full grown hemp plants can sustainably provide from four to 50 or even 100 times the cellulose found in cornstalks, kenaf, or sugar cane.
It is public knowledge that we are a couple of years away from using up all the fossil fuel that we have located thus far, changing over to hemp kills two birds with one stone, as it could tackle the resource shortage globally in a single year, but only if we can modify the temperature, which leads us to our next point.
The Industrial Complex
The only way to reverse climate change is to re-model the industrial complex from its roots upward. Although this is often a rather brutal, long-winded process, whether it follows legal perimeters or not. However, there are only a finite solutions to this problem that have or will not be provided by the individuals responsible.
Islam: The Islamic faith is currently attempting to destroy the Western industrial complex, yet this will come at the price of lives and freedom, if they manage in time…I doubt mass extinction would quench their thirst for the blood of the infidel. All the men were taught is war, all the women were brainwashed into is submission. Society could crumble around them, for them that changes nothing. There can be no peace in such a religious state, only mindless obedience. Yet, that has never stopped the cogwheels of war from churning into place.
Moreover, in their eyes, climate change is punishment for not covering more to their faith…For not building more mosques…For the ‘evil’ ways of the West. The excuses are endless. It is such a shame that their ignorance prevents them from seeing that we have always used developing countries to do our dirty work. We don’t build factories that pollute the air on our doorstep, we exploit other countries to do it on our behalf. (Like we hired their people to commit atrocities in the name of terrorism, so leaders can implement policies against the people with their permission)
Non-Violent Resistance: There is no such thing as non-violent resistance. The act of resistance itself, even in defence, appears invasive to others. That applies regardless of the methods used. I have not seen one peaceful protest that did not devolve into violence. The influence of just a handful of people in the crowd is enough, then the herd mentality takes over. All of a sudden, you are standing in a street as shops are robbed, torched and riot cops are closing in. I have not seen one hunger strike that did not result in nutrient deficiencies. I have not seen one close attempt at changing the world that did not involve threats of assassination or financial ruin. So, don’t think for a second that resistance is easy. Resistance invokes aggression in those that don’t share your views…Whose life almost depends on you sharing theirs, because not to share theirs represents a threat to their world-view. (Please see http://www.aforcemorepowerful.org/resources/nonviolent/methods.php)
Boycott Fossil Fuels: Fuel poverty is everywhere and it will continue to grow…It will continue to change our environment and our atmosphere. Whether we can own up to it or not, the lack of plant life with this much methane and CO2 is poisoning us.
Boycott Mainstream Media: Every news article has its purpose. It’s not only to inform but to shape public opinion by the way it informs you of a certain thing. For example, by using the word “victim”, the broadcasting service is more likely to inspire sympathy. Every image and every story is carefully selected to manipulate the masses through propaganda, but they often show their hand through that which remains unreported. More importantly, although there may be millions of news providers, but they are all my owned by 6 corporations on a global scale.
Boycott Pharmaceuticals/Vaccinations: Big Pharma has a long history of being addictive and chemically synthesised. We no longer live in a day, where anyone can walk down to the pharmacy and pick up the cleaner version of cocodamol. We can no longer see or even use the plants that once cured us, unless we cultivate them ourselves. (Besides, they’re going extinct, which makes it rather difficult to treat anyone when doing so would drive us and them into extinction sooner or later.) Nowadays, we have to worry about rat poison in medication, or the fact that a simply jab may turn our child into a drooling, non-verbal autistic. Moreover, we abuse the medication that we still produce from plants. Opioids were often used in combination with cannabis, then the individual would be weaned off heroine or morphine through marijuana by passing the nastier aspects of withdrawal. A method favoured by the Native Americans and other shamanic and/or indigenous cultures.
Ban Processed Food/Water: Toxic chemicals, including excess fluoride, GMO and over 30’000 additives and preservatives, are associated with long-term health consequences. Unless you eat fully organic, or grow your own, the probability is that you’re affected by the consequences. These free radicals are not merely addictive, most of them are carcinogenic, so think about making your own oven-baked fries from fresh potatoes before stopping by McDonald’s, Burger King or any other Fast Food Joint. That shit will fuck you up and get you hooked enough not to care.
Use Environmentally-Friendly Tech: Although there may be ‘no evidence’ linking mobile phone use to cancer but we know the towers cause it, so it’s not much of a stretch to suspect the lethal effects of modern technology. Disease is a natural byproduct of D/C field disruption in humans, if exposure is prolonged. Over time it becomes not only hereditary but continues long after the next level of technology has been released to the public 30-40 years after its been patented.
Forcing The Release of New Technology: As this is a rather vast subject, I will be writing a separate piece on the matter. – What if I told you that you could have grown up with holograms, flying craft and hydroponic gardens like you’ve never seen them? You may call me crazy but what’s life without a little fun. There’s only one rule when it comes to the research developments of the elite and the universe as a whole: if you can imagine it in your mind, it exists. Anything is possible, even your own worst nightmare probably exists somewhere. All of our personal hells can be found if we look hard enough. That notwithstanding, we can equally create a sustainable paradise of equality, harmony and global peace by removing poverty, religious laws, disease, wealth and resource inequality. We have the technology to do so now, but one would never guess with the current state of affairs. There’s no profit in such a world, but in ours it is all there is. To the point, there are several ways to accelerate the release of technology, but each one leaves no other choice than radical change:
Money: By purchasing the next level of technology, a new model is released. It’d take billions to drive the releases to a point, where a changeover takes place…And there are always repercussions when you hijack someone else’s timeline. Everyone that has tried is pretty much bankrupt, dead or sold out under pressure.
Space-Travel: Apart from covertly reconstructing the Vimanaika in the back-garden shed, civilian attempts to construct craft and head into space generally end in bankruptcy, unless they never make it to the news. Richard Bransons famous attempt to launch paying customers into the stratosphere were equally placed on hold for ‘unexplained’ reasons that are in truth either related to off-planet military projects, aliens or both….Which leads us to our next point:
Aliens: By confirming the existence of extraterrestrial life or evidencing first contact happened years ago, one may easily trigger a global evolution in technology. Gods are no longer powerful, non-physical entities, they are revealed aliens that have visited before…This would include unveiling the impact of keeping stolen alien technology hidden and concealing the actual history of the human race.
Pyramid Networks: Unburying secrets cities may be risky, but there’s rumoured to be one in the euro-tunnel, if you feel like taking a glimpse and spend life in prison. The only underground networks that are not sealed to the public, inaccessible or guarded are those of our ancestors…And many entrances to known tunnel systems in England are being filled with concrete. It should be noted that the majority are located on MoD territory, where trespassers are prosecuted. (They also own all of England’s high ground, son feeling from city-wide floods would be an interesting experience that might end with being shot on sight in a state of nationwide emergency)
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” (Einstein)
I once read that your life is your greatest weapon, the way you live your life, the way you struggle, it will teach others. We are a people on the brink of mass extinction, holding each other at gun-point. The refugee crisis has highlighted the importance of equal resource distribution that we have neglected for the sake of profit. The sixth mass extinction wont kill all of us. Not if there’ll be some humanoid colony somewhere in the verse, but it’ll drive is pretty close to the brink. In my opinion, unless we act, the death of billions is only a matter of time. Through war, famine, terra-forming…One way or another, we are changing the environment of this planet beyond the point of return.
While we are gearing up for war, we need to recognise our aggression is a mere unconscious reaction at what we are not aware of. All the pollutants in the air, chemicals in the water and food supply…We are buzzing off our heads seven ways to Sunday with little conscious awareness of the effect, let alone the bigger picture. We may read about tigers going extinct…bees dying…trees dying, but it’s just another article, so we turn the page, but we can’t turn the page in life. What we fail to acknowledge is that this planet is our collective responsibility and there is plenty that we can do about from our own home without even spending a fiver.
Grow Hemp & Marijuana: Because hemp is, overall, the strongest, most-durable, longest-lasting natural soft-fiber on the planet. Its leaves and flower tops (marijuana) were, depending on the culture, the first, second or third most important and most- used medicines for two-thirds of the world’s people for at least 3,000 years. Botanically, hemp is member of the most advanced plant family on Earth. It is a dioecious (having male, female and sometimes hermaphroditic), woody, herbaceous annual that uses the sun more efficiently than virtually any other plant on our planet, reaching a robust 12 to 20 feet or more in one short growing season. It can be grown in virtually any climate or soil condition on Earth, even marginal ones. Hemp is, by far, Earth’s premier, renewable natural resource.
Grow Food: Although growing food has become illegal in some countries, the only way to prevent more laws from being passed is to exert the freedom to grow your own to its maximum.
Plant a Tree: For every tree that you plant, you are doing the world a great service. Although we are devastating our natural resources so fast that we could hardly keep up, even if some of us were really dedicated. If all of us acted on our responsibility to replant the trees that we’ve demolished over the years, we can easily make a difference. Fruit trees also make especially good presents for friends and relatives, particularly because you can never have enough of them, as long as you can make the space.
Boycott Fossil Fuels: “People of conscience need to break their ties with corporations financing the injustice of climate change.” The only way to truly stop climate change is to disinvest in fossil fuels, boycott companies involved, protest and never stop changing people’s minds to desist in destroying this planet for the sake of our future generations.
Boycott Corporations: Could you imagine a life without consumerism and capitalism? A future, in which you don’t need to concern yourself with corporate greed, tax and/or other forms of public exploitation? “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” (Goethe) In truth, the corporations that are accelerating climate change need you more than you need them. In time, they may even realise that instead of brainwashing people with an inherent disregard for the consequences, but it’ll probably be too late by then.
And these are just a few of the ways we can make a difference legally. Planting hedges inside hedges or trees in public parks already skirts a legal grey area that can only be bypassed through council permission or public demand, so keep informed of the law.
On a final note, eco-terrorism is a point of property damage and casualty rate, which in all fairness can be avoided through non-violent resistance. However, as the demand for corporate accountability is rising…more red tape is coming up, more money is allocated for projects that are not in the best public interest, which in turn heightens the risk of violent responses. We have seen what terrorists are capable of…but that is nothing compared to what climate change is going to do or make us want to do. This planet is becoming uninhabitable with every year that we do nothing but work hard for a system on the verge of collapse, which we can only change through collective action.
“Germans’ anti-Semitic beliefs about Jews were the central causal agent of the Holocaust. The conclusion of this book is that anti-semitism moved many thousands of “ordinary” Germans, and would have moved millions more, had they been appropriately positioned, to slaughter Jews. Not economic hardship, not the coercive means of a totalitarian state, not social psychological pressure, not invariable psychological propensities, but ideas about Jews that were pervasive in Germany, and had been for decades, induced ordinary Germans to kill unarmed, defenceless Jewish men, women, and children by the thousands, systematically and without pity.” (Becoming evil: How ordinary people commit genocide and mass killing)
Evil exists in countless forms. At times, we perceive an object or subject as evil as a result of our ignorance towards others and our environment. Venting, for example, is a form of energy transfer that maintains our own limitations, in which we burden others with negative energy after unconscious negative pressure peaks to the degree at which its release can no longer be delayed. Although venting in itself isn’t evil, it is a part of a repetitive cycle, after which unconscious negative pressure continues to accumulate. Similar forms of release are obtained through the execution of violent acts, such as serial rape or serial murder. Similarly, each time the pressure is released in a ritualistic manner, the degree of release is reduced, hence the period of time between violent acts shortens gradually.
In the example of verbal venting, the individual typically does no harm, but often deflects blame and responsibility or ingratiates themselves with an air of powerlessness, regarding a particular problem or situation on a re-occurring basis. The persistent lack of release often sets a cycle of escalating stress and tension in motion, until release occurs. More often than not, individuals around the “venter” are affected considerably more, when no release can be found. In addition, these individuals are rarely the cause of the problem or participate in its perpetual effects. However, the mere fact that they are in proximity of the venter makes them a possible target for irrational criticism, excessive hostility and even the misuse of authority. If a co-worker is involved, employees are often able to formally complain or refuse to work with the individual in question. However, from personal experience, the individual in question is more often than not in a position of power, which is greater than that of the person that has handed in a complaint of some kind against their behavioural tendencies. In fact, many employees would never dare complain against their superiors, no matter how dire the circumstances, as it would worsen their employment status and would most likely result in their redundancy. Is that evil? The truth is that evil is widely misunderstood, due to the fact that it is very much linked to perception. Evil and corruption are concepts that are the subjects of philosophical and political debate and speculation, which may never reach an official verdict for various reasons. But from a moral perspective, to experience evil could be the effect of a cause that has already happened or is yet to become manifest. Similar to the cause for becoming or expressing “evil”.
Virtues have to be protected and maintained. “Evil prevails when good people fail to act”, therefore inaction could be considered a vice, as it prevents the preservation of good. In my professional opinion, anyone is capable of anything within the right circumstances. Rigid morals are difficult to maintain without hypocrisy and/or deeply conflicing ideologies that will inevitably collide. In the modern world, living according to the law does not necessarily mean that one lives ethically or in harmony with one’s surroundings. For example, Greenpeace activists that promote clean living and equality for animals or bomb vacant oil rigs but still heat their own homes with fossil fuels may be perceived in a wide variety of ways by the overall populous. Tabacco, Firearm, Fast Food and Big Oil CEO’s could be perceived as evil, although they are not personally responsible for the consequences of the consumption their products. Although they are not the cause of the problem, they represent darker aspects of free will, which constitutes the wilful addiction to degenerative, highly addictive chemical additives and preservatives. In the greater scheme, they are merely facilitators for a wide range of destructive human impulses. Also, they ensure their immediate survival on an economic and social scale, while compromising their long-term survival on an evolutionary scale, without consideration of the moral implications.
Since the beginning of recorded history, mankind has used psychological reasoning to discern the cause of evil…the cause of violent crime. It is the connectedness of communities and nations that led to the conception of rule and law. Yet, that underlying greed for power was never far behind to hijack its success for the misuse of authority.
More often than not, I am open about my distrust in governments and disbelief in a truly democratic vote in modern society. However, I am not fearful or otherwise emotional as I trust in the process of life. I trust in the fact that any living being is able to alter the course of history. Nothing in existence is absolutely evil or absolutely good. In a dualistic universe, the corrupt politician with a penchant for school boys donates thousands to charity on a regular basis. We are all capable of positive action. It is our thoughts, words and actions that can be considered evil, but our pure essence is beyond description and beyond verbally expressed reach.
Furthermore, the the modern world, it is more financially viable and socially seductive to engage in morally questionable actions. Personally, I have never fully understood the need for power, as the responsibility and potential (for expansion) always resembled a rather great burden that people often do not appreciate, since it encompasses a limited amount of discipline, restriction and self-control, which constrains their current forms of expression. From a wide variety of former employers to choose, some were more comfortable in their position of power, but none were willing to go out of their way to bond with their employees. In a manner of speaking, they were disposable groups of socially segregated individuals that could be replaced at the drop of a hat. This perception will ultimately face a moment, in which they tables are turned. Although they view others as replaceable, their ego often prevents them from perceiving themselves as such, until they are able to rise above their current station instead of being lowered down the social ranks due to redundancy or other reasons for unemployment. Evil begets evil in an endless cycle of evil and reformation for one single reason: Every single individual is good at something, however, there will always be someone that is more capable. In other terms, every predator and every creative genius ultimately meets their match. We are all ultimately confronted with our own misgivings and limitations for the sake of our own evolution. In fact, times of war and perpetual violence fuel creative innovation to cease the fighting through either mass destruction or peace efforts.
For all intents and purposes, I do not believe in a life-review between lives. I believe that the subconscious mind forms a symbolic representation of what they know is yet to come. (In the form of karmic contracts) However, it is highly probable that any karmic contract can be altered, extended or shortened in exchange for something of moral and/or spiritual worth. On a separate notes, order and chaos are only opposites, due to our radically opposing perception of them. Good and evil, chaos and order are means to the same end. They are states of being and perception that become incorporated into our personality due to conditioning and prolonged exposure to them. It is stated into the Vedic texts that cause and effect are one, which in moments of self-actualisation transcend one’s perception of space-time. Once Samadhi is achieved, cause and effect are stated to remain as one, including the irreversible alteration in one’s perception in space-time, often accompanied by the siddhis.
In my professional opinion, our public understanding of true evil is limited by our own emotional and predatorily nature. Humans rarely perceive themselves as the more virulent or cancerous species upon the planet, yet we are. The exact number of mass extinctions caused by humanity is most likely unknown, however, what is known is that they have risen into the billions. We may consider ourselves as morally superior, yet we no longer know ourselves. The majority of the species eats meat regularly, yet we weep and cry out with disgust, if we are asked to slaughter, skin and gut the animal ourselves. Are they evil for the participation in the extinction of countless species? Is the belief in violence in itself a form of evil? Are we considered evil by the standards of other species in the known universe? Conclusively, we consider an object or subject to be evil due to ignorance and lack of understanding as well as empathy. Unfortunate events that may appear to a source of great evil and suffering may in actuality reveal itself as the creator of profound compassion and revolutionary ideas that shape many future generations yet to come. Evil denotes negativity or negative expression and actions. It is commonly defined as immoral and unpleasant, and as a part of a supernatural force. As we already know, everything has a supernatural force with its own needs and desires. In other terms, evil may just be a negative exchange that in the long-term encourages the transformation of consciousness as a whole toward a greater goal, such as unification of the one mind beyond the point of return.
The dominos are beginning to fall…State after state, country after country is slowly and gradually legalising cannabis and hemp for industrial, recreational and medical use. Long-term, high functioning cannabis users all over the world have confessed to their penchant for the lush green plant. Concurrently, many people have begun wonder about the potential benefits and side-effects of this endeavour.Interestingly, just as I was illustrating sudden death prevention strategies for motor-vehicle accidents (for a chapter in my upcoming book, detailing some of my current post-doctoral research), I received a message from Michelle, wishing for someone to explain how to prevent car accidents as a result of cannabis inebriation.
In my personal opinion, what we do to our body is our own responsibility, however, we surrender that privilege to the law when we endanger others behind the wheel. More often than not, for good reason. The question, therefore, is how likely is substance use to impact on the lives of others, when driving?
First of all, that depends on the user and amount consumed. In the United Kingdom and the United States, the majority of road accidents involve young adults, excluding incidences of grand theft auto committed by a bunch of teenagers. As the leading cause of death in those under 30 are motor-vehicle crashes (MVC), an effective prevention strategy is necessary to commence with the legalisation of cannabis.
Although the furthest, most stoners I know, are willing to travel is the fridge, many functioning cannabis users do not have a choice when their working life comes calling… So, how does cannabis affect driving skills as well as behaviour? Studies indicate that as soon as any other form of narcotic is introduced into the mix, the effects of cannabis are overridden and/or negated. Protective behavioural mechanisms and inhibitions go out the window. The extensive physiological effects of cannabis on the road remain yet to be determined by the development of a more detailed medical testing methodology. However, a number of studies indicate the sole use of cannabis does not impair driving skills as severely as presumed by authorities:
“In summary, laboratory tests and driving studies show that cannabis may acutely impair several driving-related skills in a dose-related fashion, but that the effects between individuals vary more than they do with alcohol because of tolerance, differences in smoking technique, and different absorptions of THC. Driving and simulator studies show that detrimental effects vary in a dose-related fashion, and are more pronounced with highly automatic driving functions, but more complex tasks that require conscious control are less affected, which is the opposite pattern from that seen with alcohol. Because of both this and an increased awareness that they are impaired, marijuana smokers tend to compensate effectively for their impairment by utilising a variety of behavioural strategies such as driving more slowly, passing less, and leaving more space between themselves and cars in front of them. Combining marijuana with alcohol eliminates the ability to use such strategies effectively, however, and results in impairment even at doses that would be insignificant were they of either drug alone.” (NCBI)
Cannabis As a Cause of Motor-Vehicle Crashes
But what are the leading causes of MVC around the globe? Most studies hint to the fact that car accidents happen for three reasons: Firstly, when we are on autopilot… When we are not paying attention to what we are doing, either because we are mentally pre-occupied, multi-tasking or inebriated. Secondly, MVC occur as a result of slow reaction time and/or ineffective intervention strategies. Thirdly, MVC are triggered by the occurrence of unexpected events, such as the car at front, slowing down too quickly, the sudden appearance of a pedestrian as the car turns the corner or sudden, mechanical failure.
First, let’s have a look on what being on autopilot means…Have you ever snapped out of whatever you were thinking of as you pulled into your driveway, wondering how the hell did I get here? You may remember driving home, on some level, but your mind was a thousand miles away. Since you have probably taken the same route for a long time, your mind switches from manual to automatic, as it may. In other words, your unconscious mind takes over the wheel. More often than not, you’ll arrive at your destination safe and sound. Maybe, with the occasional fender-bender. However, the risk that you won’t the thousandth time you make the trip is quite high. Being drunk, stoned and/or tired merely quadruples the certainty of such an event. Truth be told, it is only a matter of time before accidents happen, if we don’t take precautions. More importantly, in certain circumstances, all the precautions and preparation in the world is of no use…Therefore, it is up to each and every single one of us to make the road a safe place.
In conclusion, out of all substance users, experienced cannabis users are the only control group that is more likely to drive at a reduced speed, taking additional precautions when under the influence:
“Surprisingly, given the alarming results of cognitive studies, most marijuana-intoxicated drivers show only modest impairments on actual road tests. Experienced smokers who drive on a set course show almost no functional impairment under the influence of marijuana, except when it is combined with alcohol.”(NCBI)
Driving inebriated is never a solution, especially when we are desperate and out of time. For example, when I was working in outreach home-care, a former colleague of mine was running late for work. Tired and exhausted from a late night, she rushed into the house to see to the personal care of an elderly woman. After half an hour, she came outside and found a police officer, standing by her vehicle, which she had parked in an almost straight line, blocking the entire road. She could have sworn she left it in a parking spot, but she was so sleep deprived, pre-occupied and possibly still slightly intoxicated/hungover. Although no one was hurt, she was summoned to court and rightfully fined. This is not an uncommon occurrence, when discussing alcohol-related driving incidents. That being said, it would require a massive amount of (only) cannabis to impair general functioning to achieve a similar effects. “Extreme Ice-boxing”, extreme cannabis use in an enclosed space, such as one’s car, would impair driving for a short period of time. Hence, it is advised by experienced smokers to take a walk, breathe deeply or eat, before even thinking of driving inebriated.
The mere fact that half of all drivers are statistically deemed to fail retaking an official driving test indicates that the average road user does very little to develop their driving skills. Inevitably, every driver will develop habits over the years, however, only a selective number of those habits are designed to reinforce road-safety. Believe it or not, a study conducted by the NCBI confirmed that functional cannabis users are more likely to develop behavioural strategies to prevent their involvement in car crashes. Nonetheless, accidents can happen. Each and every driver has to pay greater attention to their speed, even when they’re running late for the PTA, dance recital or staff meeting
Experienced cannabis users, similar to functional addicts, often develop behavioural strategies that ensure their safety on the road, but even stoners can be distracted, occupied or begin to develop bad habits. Road safety is a collective effort and in countries, where it is legal or illegal, we have ensure that we do not use a car when under the influence, unless medically necessary. For example, in the event that it prevents stress-prone seizures, which is a common occurrence, driving under the influence of medically prescribed marijuana may be an interesting court debate.
“Experimental studies could focus on measuring blood levels consistently or developing more accurate methods of measuring THC levels in the CNS, as well as examining residual effects that persist for more than one hour after smoking. This would permit construction of a better dose-impairment curve for THC. It would also be interesting to know whether the improved performance of experienced users is because of physiological tolerance or because of behavioural strategies that can be taught to infrequent users.”
Road safety is known to rank highly among important issues the public would like addressed by government (Lyons et al., 2008; p. 106). Safety when travelling is part of the Department for Transport’s third aim and objectives: ‘To contribute to better safety, security and health and longer life-expectancy through reducing the risk of death, injury or illness arising from transport, and promoting travel modes that are beneficial to health’
Conclusively, various studies suggest that the consumption of alcohol is medically more harmful and more dangerous behind the wheel than cannabis. To recap, once any other drug is introduced along with marijuana, general behavioural expectations fly out the window. The driver no longer exhibits the same behaviour. Conversely, speeding is more common in 30mph zones, particularly under the influence of a mixture of substances. As the medicinal value of cannabis outdates countless modern cultures, the issue of driving inebriated is bound to arise, involving the young and elderly. This does not change the fact that unless medically necessary, or for therapeutic/spiritual purposes, it is advised to avoid using cannabis before or whilst driving. Besides, you may never know the car may grow wings, take off and fly to the moon.

1. Up to 20% of elderly die due to rib fractures.
Death occurs as a result from underlying lung, splenic, or vascular injury or development of pneumonia due to splinting, rather than the rib fractures themselves. Rib fractures are also often missed on Chest X-Rays.
“Most complications result from concomitant injuries. Isolated rib fractures are painful but rarely cause complications. However, inspiratory splinting (incomplete inspiration due to pain) can cause atelectasis and pneumonia, especially in the elderly or patients with multiple fractures. As a result, elderly patients have high mortality rates due to rib fractures. Young healthy patients and those with 1 or 2 rib fractures rarely develop these complications.”
Treatment usually requires opioid based medication, although opioids can also depress respiration and worsen the partial or total collapse of the lung. Some physicians prescribe ibuprofen or aspirin simultaneously.
2. If your body takes the impact of a supersonic blast wave,
Your nails would bleed.
Within the primary blast radius, preferentially hollow or gas-filled structures are affected. Which means that it would blast your lungs, blow your ear drums, middle ear and eyes. It would rupture your stomach and cause holes in the intestines. However, the brain would experience mild to traumatic injury. A side effect of the pressure is that it also ruptures the skin underneath the fingernails.
Dependent on the proximity to the blast, there are cases, in which the injuries are mainly internal with minimal fractures, however death due to multiple organ failure is almost instantaneous.
3. Electrical field strength, is a new concept to predict electrical injury severity more accurately.
“AC changes direction frequently; it is the current usually supplied by household electrical outlets in the US and Europe. DC flows in the same direction constantly; it is the current supplied by batteries. Defibrillators and cardioverters usually deliver DC current. How AC affects the body depends largely on frequency. Low-frequency (50- to 60-Hz) AC is used in US (60 Hz) and European (50 Hz) households. Because low-frequency AC causes extended muscle contraction (tetany), which may freeze the hand to the current’s source and prolong exposure, it can be more dangerous than high-frequency AC and is 3 to 5 times more dangerous than DC of the same voltage and amperage. DC exposure is likely to cause a single convulsive contraction, which often throws the person away from the current’s source.”
Low-voltage 60-Hz AC traveling through the chest can cause cardiac arrest. Tissue damage due to electrical exposure is caused primarily by the conversion of electric energy to heat, resulting in thermal injury. The absence of external burns does not predict the absence of electrical injury, and the severity of external burns does not predict the severity of electrical injury. The electrical field effect can cause cell membrane damage (electroporation) even when the energy is insufficient to cause any thermal damage.
“For both AC and DC, the higher the voltage (V) and amperage, the greater the ensuing electrical injury (for the same duration of exposure). Household current in the US is 110 V (standard electrical outlet) to 220 V (used for large appliances, eg, refrigerator, dryer). High-voltage (> 500 V) currents tend to cause deep burns, and low-voltage (110 to 220 V) currents tend to cause muscle tetany and freezing contact to the current’s source. The maximum amperage that can cause flexors of the arm to contract but that allows release of the hand from the current’s source is called the let-go current. Let-go current varies with weight and muscle mass. For an average 70-kg man, let-go current is about 75 mA for DC and about 15 mA for AC.”
4. CO poisoning is one of the most common fatal poisonings
CO exposure caused by house fires, improperly vented automobiles, gas heaters, furnaces, hot water heaters, wood- or charcoal-burning stoves, or kerosene heaters results in a surprisingly large amount of casualties per year. They are often mistaken for flu due to the presentation of similar symptoms.
“Hyperbaric O2 therapy may decrease the incidence of delayed neuropsychiatric symptoms.” However, this therapy may cause injuries due to the change in atmospheric pressure, especially in the lungs and eardrums.
