Your skin is not the boundary of your body, there is none!

Scientists have discovered that the bacteria in your gut is similar all across the world much like blood types – I have a different take on this!

Dr Peer Bork found what he calls 3 EnteroTypes by sequencing the gut bacterial DNA.  These  bacteria help with digestion, absorption of nutrition and even help manufacture vitamins we need to stay alive.  In essence, the types of bacteria that live in our gut vastly affect our naked-459711_640health.  It makes me wonder if our naked skin really defines the borders of our bodies as it does for many of us viewing the picture on the right.

Many of us who are focused on holistic health care,  have paid attention to this ill defined body boundary as we use probiotics to heal illness and damage done by Antibiotics.   In fact a holistic alternative approach to treating food poisoning is huge doses of probiotics (gut bacteria) to crowd out the “bad” ones in the spoiled food that are now in our gut. The “bad” ones then cannot grow and are eliminated.

Note too,  that there are an estimated  100 trillion microbes in our gut, and yet our body is made up of about 10 trillion cells.  In other words we have 10 times more microbes in our bodies than “our supposedly own body cells!”

Here is something I want you to think about!  If we have more “bacterial” cells in our body then “body cells,”  which is our real body?    Now don’t decide to quickly!  We tend to  define our body by what we view as our physically attached cells that work as organs and as a team with the rest of our bodies structures.  Guess what,  the gut bacteria are physically attached to us and they work as part of the team.  Yes, they can live outside our bodies if the environment is right but, So What!  Heart cells transplanted to a petri dish with the right nutrients can continue beating for years. It has been done.

The next time you take an antibiotic casually to “help” kill of a persistent cold,  keep in mind that you are destroying the cells of  your body that make up your gut!  The truth about reality is that it must constantly be re-defined based upon the growth of human knowledge and anatomy gut bacteriaunderstanding.  Never,  Never,  Never think of the boundaries of your body as the skin over your bones.  If you do,  you may carelessly poison your body and ruin your life and that of your loved ones.  We are one with the world in more than the mystical sense shared by the “Hippy Drama” of the 1960’s or the “Tree Huggers” of the 21st century.    Think Big,  Never Believe That Anything Is A Proven Fact, Always Question, Always Grow… just as you did when you were 6 years old.

Consider a new approach to staying healthy, consume more bacteria rather than less…..   Just make sure it is the right type!

My Version Of Transcendental Meditation

FREE TM LIKE LESSONS:

I searched all over the Internet and could not find a free lesson on TM (Transcendental Meditation). The fee to learn TM is thousands of dollars. I believe that for many people this expense is totally unnecessary. Here, for free, is my Technique in 2 steps: relaxation – meditation.
The Relaxation Response Technique:

Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School, in studying Transcendental archways-google-labledforreuseMeditation, established that relaxation techniques had a very real effect on reducing stress and controlling the fight-or-flight response. Direct effects included deep relaxation, slowed heartbeat and breathing, reduced oxygen consumption and increased skin resistance. In other words a calmer, healthier state of mind and body. In this text, we use the relaxation response to get into the state for meditation. Once the body is relaxed TM is achieved by the simplest technique you can imagine! I have practiced this for over 40 years with great success. Try it for yourself.

Achieving Relaxation is something that you can do for yourself by following these simple steps:

  • Sit quietly and comfortably. Do not lie flat on a bed as you may fall asleep. Reclining is Okay, but not flat.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Start by mentally relaxing the muscles of your feet and work up your body relaxing muscles to the top of your head. How do you relax them? Simple, feel your muscles by tensing them and then by contrast feel them relax to as soft as you can make them. It gets better and faster with each days practice.
  • As you work your way up from your feet, pay special attention to relaxing the muscles of the shoulders
  • when you get to your mouth as you move up from your feet, let your mouth fall open gently as all the muscles relax in that area, much as you do in sleep. Leave it that way.
  • Deeply relax the muscles around the eyes and forehead, where we otherwise express mood and tension. This helps remove the tension of the days experiences.

When you have reached the crown of your head, focus your attention on your breathing.

Breathe in slowly, deeply and gently and then let your breath out slowly. Continue gentle full breathes and notice how you relax even deeper.

You have now achieved the Relaxation Response. It will get better and better, day by day, as you practice.

Meditation TM Style.
Now that you are relaxed, focus on your breathing again.
With every breath inwards, listen to the sound of the air filling your lungs.
With every breath outwards, SAY the mantra (a sound to be repeated) “OOMM” The sound of this mantra is like the sound of “oon” in Moon, but with the “m” sound and not the “n” sound. The sound should “s t r e t c h” out to the full time it takes to exhale. It then ceases as you inhale and again listen to the air coming into your lungs.
You may “say” the Oomm sound silently to yourself or out loud as you prefer. If you are meditating for needed rest, when awakening from sleep late at night, avoid saying your mantra out loud as it make provoke injury from an angry spouse!
Finally, do this breathing and sound technique and nothing more for about 20 minutes.
Explanation: The idea of TM is to still the “thinking” conscious mind. You do so by filling it with the mantra. You LINK the mantra to the sound of your breathing out, by practice. When you have done this, it is NO LONGER initiated by your thinking about generating the sound. In other words, with practice, you are not consciously making any effort to create the sound. You have conditioned yourself to do so in response to your breathing out.

The whole process is to listen to the air filling your lungs as you are breathing inwards and listen to the calming sound of the mantra as you exhale. Your mind is focused on your breathing and nothing else. Your mind is “stilled.” You are in a state of TM. It gets deeper with practice.
In essence you become the observer of your breathing and not the creator of the effort. At the higher level as you progress in your transcendence, you are outside your body looking in at your breathing.

Issues While Meditating: As you learn to meditate you will find that thoughts or pictures come into your mind. The goal of meditation is to still the mind and not think of these things. If you try to wipe them from your mind you fall into the trap of thinking. So how do you avoid thinking? Simple: Listen to your breathing in and the sound of
your mantra as you breath out. Your life forces are in rhythm with the universe, your heart and lungs perform reliably and rhythmically without your conscious effort. Your lungs are easier to pay attention to so you listen to your breathing. As you do so, the images or thoughts of the days events evaporate like the morning mist in the rising sun, effortlessly. This gets better and better as you practice TM.

You will find that as your practice TM, you will have a desire to awake from your session at about 20 minutes. This is the normal time to stop. If you practice this technique, when you cannot sleep, one of two things will happen. You may fall asleep or your may meditate. In either case you will be well rested.

Issues of mystical experience: It is well known that when meditating you forest-764924_1280-pixabaymay experience occasional but rare mystical visions. Some appear as colorful scenes, animal faces or even more exotic beings. The goal of meditation is not to experience mystical images but to gain rest and harmony with the positive energy of the universe. Ignore these experiences and pay attention to your breathing. What and why they happen is unimportant for the goals of TM.

How To Find A Creative Solution To Your Problem, Men.

I have a mystical solution to your dilemma if you are searching for a creative solution. It comes from the Rosicrucians and the lips of many great men in history. It comes from the biographies of creative scientists and has evolved with humanity, according to John Gray.

In a nut shell it is: GO TAKE A WALK!  

Now lets review the sagacity of my remark.  Many creative ideas are acknowledged to have come at a moment when a scientist, artist or writer sought to escape from a difficult task by going fishing or riding on a trolley car.

menrfrommarsIn “Men Are From Mars And Women Are From Venus“,  John Gray reminds us that men evolved learning to communicate while on the run hunting down animals or in battle. There is something about the motion of the body, for men, that liberates the mind from its jail of common thoughts.

The Rosicrucians teach that to solve a dilemma you must plant the concept, you are struggling with, clearly in your mind’s fertile ground.  You do so by first envisioning it in its most simple and vivid manner.  To do so, you think about it over and over until you understand it and all its ramifications fully.  Now make one clear, vivid, simple picture of the issue in your mind and then forget about it and go to sleep.

In each case we take advantage of the genius of our subconscious.  Perhaps it searches the Cosmic Consciousness or,  for the less mystically inclined,  your life’s learning.  In any case…. it usually works for me! 🙂

In either case, you are getting to best know your problem and then  distracting your galaxy-google-labled-forreuse-ngc_4414_nasa-medconscious mind from it. In one case you do so by walking, running or perhaps riding a bicycle.  In the other you put you conscious mind to sleep.  Where does the answer come from?  Where does creativity come from?

I have my answer……  I wonder what your is?

“Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good.”

I love this above quote from Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, but I wonder what the real consequences might be of attempting to enact its words?   I say this because I wonder,  if her eloquent sounding statement actually has any “real meaning”  when we consider the possibly undefinable words it relies upon, “good and evil.”

If  the end of evil, in the name of good,  became a reality, would the basis for many of our best adventure stories vanish like fog in the morning sunrise?   In our most dramatic stories and plays, from ancient times onward, it is essentially the battle between good and evil that occupy center stage, despite the actor’s exuberant strutting and stammering.  Not to say there would not be enough to write about.  Just living, surviving, exploring, advancing society and technology, challenging the limits of our existence, reaching out to the beckoning call of the sea of space, to name just a few………..  would surely be enough to write about.  Just one type of “evil” would vanish, that being the actions of one being or group of beings, against another of opposing opinions or values.

This concept of  the “end of evil in the name of good”  makes me wonder  what is “evil?” How do we define “evil?”  We won’t touch this much right now as it has been debated for centuries and appears clearly unresolved to intellectual thinkers, though perhaps not so to religious ones!  Yet,  Marie, personally,  had no problem with expecting that evil could be defined by someone; If not, her quote makes no sense!

If we step away from living entities performing evil what else is evil?  Is there evil?  One enticing thought that comes from this discussion is can we define death as evil?  Perhaps it is unjust to call death an “evil”  after all, we don’t know what death is because we don’t know what comes after it (at least other than by faith), just before it.  However, this is a whole other subject and likely a floating away from the torrentouous  sea of thoughts that Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach’s words, seem to have set astorm.

But back to Marie. How many times can you look back on history and see that a war was fought in the name of “good,” but that good appears to have been very one sided?  Perhaps that means that one sided good is another name for “evil.”  In fact this appears to make a lot of sense, when you give it some grey cell time. Does that mean that whatever we do as a nation that we declare is “good” has to be seen by all as good to truly be good?

One of the salient issues of our era, at the moment, is Islamic terrorism. Islamic Terrorists claim that they are on the side of  good,  and those whom they are attacking are evil.  The peace-signWest, mostly Christian and Jewish, in its essential values, sees it the other way around (for the most part). We do not often deny that we have made some poor decisions in our effort to “rescue”  other nations from the villainous grips of tyrannical leaders. History is replete with good guys waging war on evil.  We hope history will see us as the good guys. Maybe Marie’s statement is nonfunctional because of its dependencies?  Should we consider perhaps that forceful actions taken in the name of “good” are the issue and not the definition of good? In that case, evil might not be done if warfare was not allowed!

If only we could agree to ban war as a method of “overcoming evil” can you imagine how we might resolve our differences?  We might even be able to throw out trying to define good and evil.  Martin Luther King, amongst other good company, championed the concept of war free conflict (non-violent protest in his case). It does produce results, even without a martyr. Unfortunately the rioting thugs (who like to be misidentified as Afro-Americans, don’t know enough about the great men like Martin Luther King).

Perhaps a potentially better statment (though longer)  than hers might be considered.

  • Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good”  might become…
  • “little evil would be done in the world if warfare, of any sort,  was not permitted in an effort to replace perceived evil with perceived good.  

Warfare is also not so easy to define.  Is economic warfare war?  Is political manipulation and destabilization of nations war?

If we could ban “warfare”  of most types, it could potentially make for a great story. However, considering that the “natural order of our universe” appears to be the  survival of all living creatures who are dependent upon a hierarchy of species dominance and a food chain, it strains credulity.

Somewhere in our universe I know this story is being played out.  Ah…but to witness it in person and learn its secrets!  My exploration of this issue and slowly upcoming story currently labeled “The Carrnegg”  is an attempt to visit this time and place…….  stick around.

 

Explain It To Your Grandmother!

Science Fiction Is Fact,  Before It Can Be Proven.

— You may quote me on this.  Does this statement mean that anything you can conceive of,  can be and will be a reality?   Without spending the time it would take to explain this to my grandmother,  I will tell you that I believe the answer is yes!  In infinity, for example,  there are an unending number of “shades of you” on an unending number of worlds, much like our world, but different from the one you are now on.  Each world  just varies in “its nature” much as candles do in their light when you sit between two mirrors and watch the one candle next to you trail off into infinity in limitless iterations of  its fractal like images……..
As a hint to those of you who like science, are intrigued by this statement and like being swept away in hours of thought,  consider the implications of the fairly well accepted statement that our world is infinite. One of my favorite people,  Albert Einstein, said that,  “You do not really understand something until you can explain it to your grandmother.”   I believe this is true.  The only part that Einstein left out was that it could take hours to explain it to your grandmother. Not to mention the more difficult task of keeping her awake through the process.
A while back I gave up explaining things that took me hours to understand; well at least for the most part…. this compulsion often overcomes my minimal wisdom.   Over many years of college, I have listened to a few egotistic college professors babble on and on, from a position of their intellectual superiority, attempting to share their great knowledge with us commoners.  They either put me to sleep or I skipped their classes and read the text books in my dorm (a privilege supposedly allotted to us nerds who are out of high school).  I certainly do not want to be looking or even
smelling like them in my writing .  However,  I could not help but be attracted to the concepts that most of the great teachers spent their life focused on, learning for the joy of learning and the sea of thoughts it’s rains of concepts produced.
On the expostulating  side of things and as a better way of communicating complex thoughts oftenwalt_disney_1946-andmickey-mouse contradicting “common knowledge,” I chose to listen to the words of a far wiser man than these few long winded college professors,  Walt Disney.
Walt said,  “I would rather entertain someone  with the hopes of educating them then to educate them with the hopes of entertaining them.”   With great respect for a man who changed the world in a positive way and brightened all our lives;  I humbly strive to be walk in his shoes,  knowing I may never be able to fill them. I write Sci-Fi,  and hope that I entertain you and keep you up at night for hours of silent thought wondering, “could it be true?”   Why not start here with wondering could it be true? Every story I write is fiction (from the common point of view) but not from mine!  What about yours?  Are you willing to “expand your mind” without the drugs that were so alluring to those of us who grew up in the 60’s?

Thinking Outside The Box – Creative Ideas

In response to the question – “Where do the unusually creative ideas come from?”

I don’t know what your mind is like; as I have never been in it. All I know is my friends tell me that I do not think like them.

Wherever I have been involved in any organization’s leadership (many times) or just time with friends, people end up telling me,  “you think outside the box.” Those who really know me well say, “you live outside the box.” From most people this is a compliment occasional it could be a less positive comment; but in my case, I have never cared.

Reviews of my writing periodically involve comments about my creative suggestions and again outside the box thinking.  It is simple, this is who I am.  My books and short stories have simply flowed from my fingers. No matter how outrageous the story, there seems no limit.  In other words,  I do not believe in “writer’s block.”

I have always chosen to live in change and challenge.  When I write a story it does not go through the process some writers  are taught about planning,  outlining and finally filling in the details.   I simply start writing about something that has come to mind at 4:30 AM, quite often. What is really exciting is that as I write the story,  I am reading it for the first time!  It is as if someone is telling it to me and I am taking

notes.

If you have ever enjoyed reading an exciting story (and I hope you have),

World of Magic. Female portrait with abstract world in hand

World of Magic. Female portrait with abstract world in hand

this is almost exactly my experience writing it! As for the “out of box thinking,” I don’t actually think this was a conscious choice.  My mom had this genetic thing that she gave to me and so does my daughter.  My mom did a lot of writing and she was always up at 4:00 in the morning.  Though she did not share much with me (we did not see eye to eye),  she did say however that it was quieter, early in the morning, when the noise of everyone’s minds thinking were not there. Now there is something to think about!

I wake up at 4:30 AM and have these ideas or hypnagogic
dreams that are more real than reality.  From these experiences,  I often begin writing.  If a story ever seems to stop,  I take a long walk or bike ride and it begins writing itself again.  My lifestyle is not “normal” either and I like it that way.

At least for the last 5 or 6  years, for breakfast I have salads with some protein in them.  Lunch is “normal”  but I do not do dinner or meet socially for dinner.  I believe that dinner is a modern invention of civilization created to please restaurant owners. It is much like shopping for Christmas presents for 6 months before Christmas is an economic contrivance.  Eating after 4:00 pm,  in my opinion is bad for your health.  It denies your body an opportunity to clean itself as it does when fasting.  This is where the term Break-fast came from.  In primitive times,  as we evolved, most of us ate during the day when we could forage for food or hunt.  In the evening we rested and fasted.  Yes I know there was fruit and nuts that you could store, even in a cave.  Our bodies have evolved around this paradigm, but we follow that created by the electric light and food as pleasure culture. …….. a topic for another day.

In any case,  I sat down to write about 4:30 am, I think.  If you have studied Rosicrucian literature, as I have, you will know the secret system for solving problems.  I find that the answer comes at 4:30 am.

My next book is now 80% created.  It is called (for now) “The Carnneeg.”   I may publish some early chapters of it on a site like Booksie.   We shall see.  If so you will find the links on the social media,  like Facebook  or Twitter.

Infinite Extrapolation – a very short story

Lounging lazily in my LikeNet  captain’s chair,  I gazed down through the ships expansive synglass window  at a water world, twice the size of Earth, majestically rotating beneath my feet.   Literally beneath my feet as the synglass, which was 10 times stronger than steel, rose from the floor to the 10 foot ceiling height and horizontally,  port to starboard in an expanse that challenged the minds fear of heights.  The apparent image was one of peace and tranquility, something the old blue Earth had almost never known.

waterWorldThis moment of serenity and peace was suddenly shattered as  my grandchildren exploded onto the flight deck like a meteor  shower tumbling, splashing and screaming while floating through every space of the deck  in a torrent of excitement and laughter. Our RV had just crossed 50 light years of space to reach Arcus II, a never before visited planet. Arcus II with very Earth like seas and rich with life was reason enough to be excited; but, even more so was the prospect of soon exploring our new home. Over port holes down the length of our 1,000 foot  ship, this incidence was undoubtedly being repeated over and over by our extended family.   Six hours of space flight was without question more boring than young minds could tolerate.

Jonathan tumbled across the cabin doing slow motion pinwheels and planted himself like a starfish on the front synglass deliberately obscuring my view.  He burbled enthusiastically, “grandpa, when is splash down?’   This was,  of course, the thought on everyone’s mind.  He then gleefully launched himself with all his might at his father, floating by the entry port 30 feet away.

Beyond the startling image of our new home below, everyone was focused on the ships Aura created by the black holes warp field. The torus of magnetic flux from the Haramein Warp drive was rapidly cooling, as evidenced by the visibly shrinking aura of spectral fluctuations around our ship; it would be safe to descend soon.  They all knew the signs and Jonathan’s question was really rhetorical.

Our new home had none of the  above water land masses of Earth.  At times a large patch of land, might show its topmost edge just above sea-level near the Northern pole and then vanish. In essence, there was no dry land.  Its Ocean’s  depth varied far more than that of our home world, Earth.  Yet millions of years of research had proven we could easily tolerate the heavier gravity, deep oceans and new food supply.  Our ship was outfitted with everything we would need to start our new colony.  It was the mission Nassim Haramein had envisioned when he realized humankind must escape Earth in some form or face destruction by catastrophic accident.

Nassim Haramein had changed the world with his refusal to accept the basic underpinnings of old Earth Physics.  However, the world could no longer question his assumption that space was full of infinite density, not an empty vacuum,  and we were just a manifestation of its creation.  The first proof was the Casimir effect then came a rapid succession of high frequency electromagnetic devices that tuned in to the tetrahedral resonance of easily contained small black holes. Suddenly energy was ubiquitous and space time travel was limitless.

As I thought back to the late 21st century,  I recalled the biggest ethics issues of the century was how to avoid contaminating the incredible worlds of life that were abundant and now easy to reach.  Terraforming was quickly forbidden by the world council.  It would be much easier to Genetically modify our structure to fit in with the new home planet’s and far more ethical.  Here again, black hole technology fulfilled that need.  In 2024,  Janr Ssor had invented the  Resonant Temporal Crystal Computer (RTC computer).  Since difficulty acquiring information at any distance or time was meaningless in a black hole,  the RTC computer could capture all the information contained in a distant world, add some variables such as a new GMO organism and watch a million years of its future evolution to see the outcome. It could do this millions of times in a split second, making simulations a thing of the past, after all, every possibility existed in an infinite universe, a black hole.  By combining our chromosomes with those of this new world we had been designed to fit into the environment with little or no impact.  As odd as it was on Earth, to have a second chromosome pair with a silicon base, here we would be well at home.

While lost in my reminiscence, our ship had begun its automatic descent and I was awakened from my reverie by the water line rapidly rising over our window.   30 minutes later, we completed our splash down, 1 mile beneath the surface waters.   As I pressed the release button, that was now functional, the doors rose upwards with the grace that all things move in deep water.  The thousands of members of my extended family swam and cavorted with glee into the warm embrace of our bright new home worlds waters.

I turned to look back at our Resonance Vehicle and wondered when we would meet another race of space fairing beings.  In the polished metal, I saw my reflection. I did not look much different from the Gilled Women kisses fishbrothers and sisters born of Earth.  My eyes were twice their size, my head 50 % longer but this was mostly behind my face and so had little effect on my facial appearance.   Two dots for a nose and large neck gills were quite different but that was what was needed for life an Arcus II.  Suddenly it dawned on me, I had just met another space fairing race.

Forbes Mag’s Latest Paid American Hero

Forbes magazine has earned my unqualified scorn as one of the worst publications in America. Some would vote for “People” as trashy gossip but I pay offwould rather that than paid for lies!

A while back, Forbes called Monsanto “company of the year!”  Sure why not all they do is poison the food supply with GMO crops, cause death and disease with Roundup Pesticide and pay millions to congressmen that vote to keep you from knowing what food is Genetically modified (gmo). I believe that Money can buy you any “honor”  you desire at Forged Magazine (oops I sure meant Forbes).

The latest scandal at Forbes is their vote for the new American hero,  Mr Hamm,  the guy who by being the biggest in Fracking (dumping poisoned harold hammwater full of toxic chemicals down into the Earth (where it gets into your Aquifer’s drinking water) is supposed to have restarted America’s growth by getting lots of oil for us.  Well, if you have not noticed, Oil prices are up not down…… hmm.  In the mean time it is not just stupid science (you can find a scientist who will discover anything for enough money) to think that Fracking is is not poisoning our well water but now we learn it is causing Earthquakes!  What a surprise!  Did Forbes miss out on this little issue? Thousand dollar bills in your face can after all blind you.  Read this article and learn what Mr Hamm is really doing and what Forbes conveniently did not do or read research on.

A Case For An American Operating System Anti-Virus

Microsoft Windows in an Operating System (O.S.)   Android is an OS for your phone.  Some like Mac’s and  the apple operating system is an OS too!   An OS is a set of ruies that makes a computer run,  which means “know what do do.”  When you were born, you had no OS and acted like it.  You urinated on the floor,  could not speak or move much and basically you did not “Know what to do.”??????????????????????

IN 1776,  some well read people got together and decided to write why we needed an OS for America,  we called this defined need the “Declaration Of Independence.”  They soon followed it by creating the constitution of the united states of America. This was the OS, we would live by and modify as our survival required.

It is now over 200 years later,  2013,  and perhaps for some, that “13” is ominous as it may portend the end of America as caused by many viruses. Are you confused at this point?  Are you wondering what are the Viruses that have attacked America?  Let me help clarify that and keep in mind that our constitution, legislature, judiciary and executive office are just parts of the computer that the OS controls.  Oh yes, there are the many applications that run in this OS.  Some examples are:    Farms,  Homes,  Wall Street “firms”,  Doctors, Hospitals,  Supermarkets, The Military and much more.  It has worked pretty well for 200 years with some glitches as viruses and malware have invaded our system.  One big example was the leveraged buying in the Early 1900’s,  that helped precipitate the “Great Depression.”

A VIRUS is a complex set of rules that are “hidden” away from clear view and inserted into an operating system to create an effect its designer wanted.  This “effect”  is usually nefarious and at the cost of significant pain to its “host organism,” in this case our country.  The “Leveraged buying”  was such a device that helped create disaster in 1929.   In the year 2008,  Wall street’s  new virus,  known as “Derivatives”  became the new infamous catalyst for a second disaster one of Epic Proportions as it has almost bankrupted America.  Of course it is an over simplification to say that Derivatives caused the recession but it is not an over simplification to say that it helped catalyze the recession.  Other obvious things are,  congresses pressuring banks to make home ownership a “right” and not a privilege earned.  After all we have our “rights,”  which by re-definition can be almost anything we can take from someone else in the name of “equal rights”  when a Virus redefines what our constitution stood for.   The banks and financial institutions also created a virus as they pressured congress to eliminate the Glass-Steagall Act which protected American from the corruption that helped cause the Great Depression.

Instead of letting America slide down the tube of history into the role of a debtor nation, we need to restore our OS,  to protect and defend what our fathers fought for for over 200 years!  We need an Anti-Virus!  An anti-virus would not be a part of the OS,  as it has not been part of Microsoft’s Windows ever before.  There is too much risk of collusion in such a bond; we don’t need another governmental institution.   An American Anti-Virus should be an independent institution created by volunteers from the best America has to offer.  America still has the people, the will, the institutions and the resources to recover and lead the world into freedom (by example and not by warfare).   To create this new institution,  I suggest that the we need to create first a “constitutional convention”  in which the best minds share ideas as to what the Anti-virus should look like and how to go about writing its rules.  As a first thought, I would suggest creating it on the WORDPRESS Platform as a publication with many respected authors and a forum for discussion.  I have started several organizations for a purpose but without a plan and just let those with like minds help define the plan.  This works!  I suggest calling it “THE AMERICAN ANTI-VIRUS”  and forming a panel of national leaders whose ethics,  writings and actions are unquestionable.  Its goals should be to serve initially as a publication to attract creative minds and readership as it defines itself in service of our nation.  Picture this for one moment!  A publication with weekly articles by hundreds of respected authors describing their concerns for the issues that define America’s viability such as: Uncontrolled corporate greed,  Banking dangers,  Wall Street’s instabilities (such as the still viable derivative!),  congressional legislation serving those who bribe them rather than our country….etc.  It is quite possible to take a sea of knowledge and distill it into a simple publication that any busy harried citizen can read.  Hyperlinks are a marvelous tool for those who need more.  At least define the issues. When the issues are defined the solutions will be found.  After all the first step in a journey of 1,000 miles is just one foot forward.

Is this a “think tank?”  No, I hope not, as think tanks don’t necessarily create change, provide leadership and police the nation’s future security.  It will have to be something more, that creative minds define. Perhaps we can take a lesson from China in this regard and without assigning a new role to government assign a role to free people and honest leadership. If China can crawl out of poverty at a rate that makes America’s past ascension seem slow then there is much to learn.

Think of our “Constitutional Convention” as a Ted Talks  in written form with an audience soon to be acquired; but,  with an action plan to create the American Anti-virus, as an institution to watch over America as it grows once more to its potential prominence.
