Is Fasting the Fountain of Youth?

July 19, 2017 at 8:21 pm




The less you eat the longer you live, and the healthier you are, according to experts on aging and longevity, who’ve discovered fasting protects our genes and speeds up the regeneration of our cells.

“It’s been known for a long time that one way to extend the lifespan of laboratory animals is simply to reduce their energy (calorie) intake,” says
Mark Mattson, a neuroscientist at the National Institute on Aging and professor at Johns Hopkins University.

The Placebo Effect Proves We Can Heal Ourselves With Our Minds

July 16, 2017 at 3:59 am




In a documentary called The Power of Thought, stem-cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton estimates at least a third of all healings – including those involving drugs, surgery and all other allopathic treatment – have nothing to do with the treatment itself, but everything to do with the patient’s belief in the treatment.

The placebo effect, as defined by Google, is a “beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment.”

I LOVE Facebook. And You Probably Do Too. Why Can’t We All Stop Pretending to Hate It?

July 13, 2017 at 3:05 pm




I LOVE Facebook. I fucking love it. I always see people posting about how much they hate it:

“I hate facebook.”
 
“About to take a 2-hour break from Facebook. Just wanted to let you all know so you don’t worry.”
 
“If you need to get a hold of me, send me a private message on Facebook messenger. I’m not hardcore enough to take a break from that yet.”
 
“Just got back from my Facebook break and am instantly reminded of why I took a break in the first place.”
“I’m one stupid-post away from taking another break. I’m warning you guys.”

What a Gatherer-Hunter Diet Did to a Man’s Gut in Just Three Days

July 7, 2017 at 5:46 pm

After just three days of living and eating with the Hadza gatherer-hunters, the gut flora of a relatively healthy British professor were transformed for the better.




Tim Spector, a genetic epidemiology professor at King’s College London, has been studying the “major influence” gut bacteria (and other microbes) have on our immune system, metabolism, mood and general health. What he and his colleagues have found is the greater the gut flora diversity – the more types of microbes – the better. High diversity is associated with low risk of obesity and all types of disease.

Spector says he already knew changing to a more Paleolithic diet could cause major shifts in unhealthy people with low-diversity, unstable gut flora, but he wanted to know how much the microbiome of a relatively healthy Westerner could be improved by adopting a 100-percent authentic gatherer-hunter diet.

The Inconvenient Truth About Monogamy

June 5, 2017 at 10:36 pm




It’s not natural.

Before you blow your top, hear me out.

I’m not saying it’s “not natural” in the sense religionists say homosexuality is “not natural.” I’m saying it in the same sense I would say eating grains is “not natural” – meaning you can do it, it’s just not going to be easy.

May 24, 2017 at 1:51 am

How Reintroducing Wolves Miraculously Transformed Yellowstone National Park

May 16, 2017 at 1:13 pm

Nearly a century after they’d been driven extinct in the United States, 66 wild wolves captured in Canada were reintroduced to Central Idaho and Yellowstone National Park in 1995. The result was nothing short of miraculous.




Man Relives Circumcision in Somatic Therapy

May 11, 2017 at 9:46 pm

A man claims to have relived his circumcision multiple times during a series of orgone therapy sessions:




In a therapy similar to somatic therapy he remembered lying in an operating room and not being able to move his arms. He remembered the doctor making eye contact, “and then I felt the shock of the pain in my genitals.”

Laziness is Not a Sin

May 7, 2017 at 7:22 pm

If your family was like mine, you probably grew up believing laziness is not only a sin, but one of seven deadly sins.




Maybe it wasn’t taught directly — or maybe your family wasn’t even religious — but the subconscious belief that lying around doing nothing is “bad” or “wrong” or a “waste of time” is the unspoken premise of all of civilization.

To have idle hands or an idle mind is considered sloth – “a habitual disinclination to exertion” – and sloth has been damnable ever since Adam and Eve got kicked out of Paradise.

Sexual Repression is the Foundation of Human Slavery

April 17, 2017 at 4:39 pm

You can’t make a man or a woman into a slave without first cutting him off from his life-force (sexual) energy, says one of my favorite gurus, Osho. The following excerpts are from Osho’s talk “The Fundamental Slavery the talk that has fueled my quest for sexual freedom and awakening over the last three years:




“Sex is the most powerful instinct in man. The politician and the priest have understood from the very beginning that sex is the most driving energy in man. It has to be curtailed, it has to be cut. If man is allowed total freedom in sex, then there will be no possibility to dominate him. To make a slave out of him will be impossible.
