Whatever the weather, our day starts with walking the dogs and (sometimes with cats in tow) and foraging for weeds. We are lucky to live in an area where there is no intensive farming, no crop spraying and lots of hedgerows, meadows and verges, where the wild plants flourish. Our own land was not occupied for 40 years before we moved here so, although it is hard work clawing out a few patches for cultivation, at least I know that our soil is relatively uncontaminated. In the height of summer, when it can be very hot and dry, there’s not usually so much to be had from the wild, but we usually have plenty in our garden then.
I started juicing two years ago in spring when the cleavers came out en masse and almost begged to be juiced. I bought a Lexen Manual Juicer, as the electric one some one left us is so big and noisy and I have Luddite leanings. What a joy this little machine is. It makes beautiful, rich and slick juice and is so satisfying to use – and easy to clean. I much prefer it to the electric version. Chopping the plants and fruits and pushing them into the machine and watching the juice and pulp come out is a kind of meditation. I’m still juicing every morning, because it really does taste that good……and I’m beginning to learn why it’s so good.
Wild juice recipe
3 sticks of celery
Large thumb-sized piece of ginger
Handful of coriander/cilantro leaves
And several handfuls of one or more of the following:
Cabbage (red or green)
Lemon balm (not too much as it’s very strong)
Mallow (not too much as it’s very gooey)
Milk thistle leaves
Radish leaves –
Yarrow (not too much as it’s pucker-power astringent)
For our tastes the apple, celery, ginger and coriander/cilantro is the basic blend and then whatever greens are available. This juicer prefers hard fruits, technically it’s a wheat grass juicer, so anything too mushy doesn’t work so well. We grow broccoli, kale, swiss chard and cabbage for most of the year, hopefully the ginger, coriander/cilantro and apples will make it this year and we find the ‘weeds’ on our walks.
We’re enjoying an abundance cleavers, clover, dandelion and milk thistle leaves at the moment.
Biological power plants
The human body is a biological power plant, as it transduces multiple energy sources for different systems and processes. Oxygen is used as the primary fuel to break down food, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins in order to power movement and essential physiological processes, such as digestion, respiration, mitosis and repair. The nervous system is considered to be primarily electrical, driven by the polarizing actions of the sodium-potassium pump in response to stimuli and then back to the resting state after external stimulation. The nervous system uses about one third of the body’s overall energy capacity, regardless of physical activity or lifestyle choices. Except in cases of injury, poisoning or chronic illness, most ‘nervous conditions’ can be significantly remediated through diet. However, more recently some researchers are considering that the nervous system is powered by light. And what about the senses????
The human body also creates energy. I cranked my manual juicer with kinetic energy, not hard enough to make me sweat (thankfully), but just being alive creates thermal energy. And then there is light. All life forms radiate light, which is electromagnetic energy. Some electromagnetic energy is visible to the naked eye, like rainbows or laser beams, but most isn’t.
Your body grows new retinal cells every two days, new skin in six weeks, a new liver over an eight week period and new nerve cells in a matter of months. So what stops us from regenerating and why do we all show signs of ageing, with advancing years? Those are big questions, with many answers, but in biological terms your body needs three things:
the right raw materials from which to construct new cells;
sufficient cellular energy to enable it to use the raw materials;
a working communication system, so it knows what to do and when;
a guiding narrative that attunes you to health and regeneration.
If any one of these three components is depleted, as they mostly are, you don’t heal and regenerate as you were designed to do and eventually you succumb to total systemic failure – otherwise known as death. Additionally, cells, systems, habits and even civilizations all go through a natural process of apoptosis, signified by chaos, and that’s one way of looking at the current conditions. The question is: what do you do about it? You can just find yourself a safe haven and ride out the rest of you life as best you can and there’s plenty to be said for that approach, I nearly ended up there myself. But funnily enough, when I found my safe haven, here in Galicia, I began to perceive and experience life in a very different way. Life gushes, sprouts and oozes through every pore in the earth and atmosphere here and I want more of it. This leads back to the plants, the wild plants and weeds……
Have you ever stopped to consider why you need to put so much time and effort into weeding the garden? The weeds always win! They are stronger, better adapted to the environment and they are prolific, whatever the conditions, the weeds survive and return more quickly than cultivated plants – they are the power plants. That’s because they grow as Nature intended, they haven’t been hybridized for yield benefits or so they can be transported over long distances, irradiated and still look tasty on a grocery store shelf. Domestic vegetables are designed for profit and wild plants are designed for life. Wild plants contain at least 5 – 10 times more nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, phytochemicals and biophotons than supermarket vegetables. 15 grams of nettles contain far more nutrients than 100 grams of healthy romaine lettuce. I’ve long suspected that one of the reasons I didn’t do well on a vegetarian diet was lack of minerals. I’m very reluctant to use supplements, as I regard them as suspiciously as I do every other processed ‘food – made for profit, rather than health. Several studies have shown that the mineral content of wild edible plants is higher than their commercial equivalents, which stands to reason if the wild plants are collected from soil that has not been depleted through industrial farming methods. However, there is another reason, that is even more significant and that is light.
Biophotons, that is light emitted by life, were discovered in 1923 by Russian scientist Professor Alexander Gurvich, who originally named them “mitogenetic rays”. German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp proved their existence in 1974 and subsequently developed biophoton theory based on observation to explain their possible biological role and the ways in which they may control biochemical processes, growth, differentiation etc. This work is now continued in a network of research laboratories in more than 10 countries, although it remains outside of make-believe mainstream science.
The radiant light emanating from animals and plants that is too faint to be seen by the naked eye. It would be like seeing a lit candle in the dark from 20km away, but it has been repeatedly photographed using the Popp designed photomultiplier devices. In humans it appears to be most concentrated in the forehead, the throat and the chest area.
According to Popp, living cells and DNA use electromagnetic waves to communicate and transfer information. Substances and unnatural electromagnetic fields, disrupt the natural cycles of light emission causing loss of coherence and poor intracellular communication, so that the body is unable to generate new healthy cells. For example, Popp found that cancer cells were not attuned to the rest of the body ie. out of synch, dancing to a different tune.
A biophoton is always emitted before each of the appproximately 100,000 biochemical reactions that occur per second in every cell in the human body. There is no biochemical reaction that takes place without the preceding biophoton signal, which is why it is considered to be the ‘steering system’ for all the biochemistry that takes place in the body. The communication system of the body is more akin to fibre optics than copper wires.
I’ll be posting more on biophotons, DNA, regeneration and communication another day. Meanwhile, if you can find a very local source of edible wild plants, give wild juicing a try and I’m sure you’ll notice the benefits in a few weeks. Popp considers the biophoton content to be of far greater importance than just the nutrient or caloric content of a food freshly picked, as it brings coherence back into the body. Health and regeneration is just not possible without communication and coherence. Eating plants with a high biophoton content helps correct the deficit caused by electromagnetic pollution and reconnects you with nature – another part of the story. Wild edible leafy green plants have the highest biophoton content of all foods available, as the ancient alchemists surely knew.
This is an orientation piece for Gaian Alchemy. I want to explain why I’m focusing on what seems to be such an arcane subject, as the world spirals into chaos, and why I think it’s relevant, even essential, for these times in which regeneration is happening concurrently with destruction.
I hold myself out to be a witch, a healer, a kalika, a teacher and a bog-standard alchemist in the way all true women are. I have the burning desire to know how humans interact, physiologically, psychologically and emotionally with the natural and Supernatural world and to use that knowledge wisely. My motivation with Gaian Alchemy is to learn how the mind/body system works interactively with our Planetary Animal Mother, so as to command Her Power to live in ultimate freedom. I want freedom to live and die without third party interference, to make my own mistakes and learn from them, which is about as clear as I can get on my motives right now. I aim to teach what I’m learning, by putting it into effect because I want to play with the Rhomay in this way, with tensegrity. I’m constantly challenged by my limited knowledge and the grandeur of the subject, but also compelled to learn and it keeps me sane.
The alchemy for the end-times of the Kali Yuga is not the same as it would have been at the beginning of the kalpa. These times are defined by escalating war, insanity, loss of humanity, mindless destruction and extinction. This is Ceridwen’s cauldren and A11 is a brewin’. Even as you weep for the suffering you see everywhere, don’t despair; humanity as a species wins this final battle of the Kali Yuga. For each of us as individuals, well, much depends on how you live and what you do. Kali protects Her warriors, so long as they hold to the kalika code and protect humanity. She destroys the archontic illusion and all who uphold it and She regenerates the faculties of the Rhomay, with absolute simultaneity, so that you can interact with the Supernatural as easily as making a phone call, right now! You don’t have to wait until the battle is won. The art of Gaian Alchemy is to track and participate in that regeneration/transmutation process, using your senses and imagination as they were designed to be used. And as this knowledge is developed and fed into the morphogenetic field of the Anthropos, it exponentially enhances the extraordinary abilities of all the warriors of the Rhomay. The battle lines are both deeply personal and transpersonal at the same time, so that when you fight for Freedom, Truth and Beauty in your own life, you add those qualities to the brew. There is a selection process underway.
In bringing Gaian Alchemy to life today, I am spiralling back, sniffing out the trail and picking over the clues were left by the chroniclers of the ancient alchemists – panning for gold, and also making gold. And what is the real gold? I can’t define it as one single thing right now. That might sound like a cop-out, but that has to be discovered by each alchemist on his/her own terms. For example: a few days ago, it came up in conversation how our PAM gives us two hues, the blue skin tone in the presence of the Organic Light and the amber-gold when She shows Her pleasure. These hues are visible in exactly the same way to everyone who has these experiences. Doesn’t that make you wonder about the nature of alchemical gold? Do you see that it is alive, responsive, something that you ache for?
“The Gold you acquire at the end of the work is also called the Philosophic Gold, or the Philosophic Matter. To paraphrase, it is what matters philosophically, in the long run, after all the DROSS is burned away. Remember that philosophy is nothing but the methodical inquiry into the meaning of life, the loving-to-know what life really means. The DROSS is our immersion in the human muddle, our total identification with it and everything it means, but the gold is a gleaming thread that leads elsewhere.
Alchemical Gold cannot be sold and as you may sense from the awkwardness of this passage, it is even extremely difficult to give away.
That anyone who assumes responsibility for the outcome of deeds initiated by the Gods will eventually be delivered from the human muddle – this is the subtle idea held by the alchemists to be the supreme idea. Nowhere do they attempt to explain how the assumption of this responsibility for the Divine Dilemma is not a super-burdening but an unburdening, yet everywhere they allude to it as the only thing worth thinking about, the one true Philosophic Matter. What comes of it is noted by Rilke in a letter where he writes to Rodin: “He was a worker, who desired nothing but to enter, completely and with all his powers into the humble and austere reality of his art. In this there was a certain renunciation of life. But precisely by such patience did he win life: for the world offered itself to his art.”
THROUGH THEIR INCURSIONS INTO THE HUMAN REALM, MYTHICAL BEINGS BECOME ENTANGLED IN HUMAN KARMA SO THAT THEIR OWN EVOLUTION COMES TO BE DEPENDENT UPON HUMAN ACTION – SUCH IS THE DIVINE DILEMMA.”
The Course in Gaian Alchemy, John Lash
In a nutshell, you engage in Gaian Alchemy by taking responsibility for your own life, in such as way as to pull yourself out of the murky muck of mundane affairs, so that you can (if you so desire) take responsibility for solving the problems created by the gods, our Divine Mother specifically! But you don’t do it alone, of course.
The goal of Gaian Alchemy is the completion of the Great Work. The Great Work is, in one sense, all that is possible to imagine, thus it includes the biosphere and even the Milky Way Galaxy. The gods left our home galaxy incomplete intentionally, so that the subjects of their experiments could (eventually, potentially) enjoy the pleasure of completing their work. This is what you would call a long-term project, but the interaction between what is happening on this planet and in the cosmos is easily verifiable. For those of you who followed the GNE, and other stargazers, have you noticed what is happening with the Milky Way over the past few years? Doesn’t it seem to be falling apart and going in a completely different direction? Could you say that it is mirroring what is happening on this planet, and vice versa? As above, so below. The Anthropine species on this planet is a long way away from co-creating anything with the gods, but the Human Effect extends as far as we could possibly imagine and we can learn how to regenerate as well as we have learned how to destroy. That is a sobering thought, the next time you complain about the lack of opportunity!
The social domain across the whole world is disintegrating into chaos, but at the same time clarity, pristine cognition and solutions are erupting spontaneously amongst those who live outside of the system as much as they can. I don’t think it’s possible to live completely outside the system, not unless you adopt a really primitive lifestyle, but living in the countryside and not being employed in a slave job reduces the impact somewhat. I notice here that as I fret about the weather, “not enough rain, too much rain (really too much rain)”, nature just gets on with it. I’m looking for a break in the action to transplant seedlings, but the birds are nesting, the fruit trees are in blossom and the grass is already knee high. Nature regenerates itself every spring, but the Anthropos has been so systematically disconnected from that process that not only do we no longer remember how to regenerate ourselves, but we go one step further and dismiss it as impossible. How long has this amnesia and disconnection been in effect? Millenia, perhaps. The irony is that the escalating destruction and chaos actually create the conditions that make remembering and regeneration possible, but only for those who have the Sophianic Narrative to keep them sane and sober through the storm.
I have no doubt that we were designed with the innate ability to regenerate any part of the body, including limbs and organs. Adult stem cells are found in many parts of the human body, including the bone marrow, heart, liver, gut and brain and have different functions; some only have the ability to generate one type of cell, while others are multipurpose. Recent research is proving that the central dogma of DNA (that DNA writes to RNA to create all the proteins in the body) does not tell the full story and bioelectricity has much more of a role than previously thought. Studies have shown that electrical signals provide environmental cues for intercellular communication, to orchestrate cellular behaviour during morphogenesis and regeneration. It has been proven that bioelectricity can induce limb regeneration in non-regenerative species. However, all these studies fail to consider the source of these electrical signals!
Gaian Alchemy is now informed by the Sophianic Narrative and Planetary Tantra. Additionally, the Electric Universe proponents provide scientifically verifiable theories that back up what John Lash observed and intuited when he created the course back in 1983. If you look through the lens of Gaian Alchemy, you can clearly see that various outlying scientific communities are picking up on the operational similarities and the interactivity between the cosmos, the earth and the human creature. However, their ingrained myopia does not allow them so see (or remember) the elephant they are actually riding on! And therein lies the role for Gaian Alchemists in the social domain, to guide science which is still operating in the mode of the three blind men describing an elephant. Does that sound outrageously ambitious? Yet, it’s nowhere near as ambitious as playing like the gods!
Coming back down to earth and right up close and personal; your Goddess endowed luminous epinoia, the power of imagination, nous and intelligence are entrained by your perception, but your perceptive abilities have been disabled by generations of archontic interference. You cannot look at the sky or a tree or a rock and see it as a Gnostic seer or shaman would have seen it. Neither can I. But you and I now know that our perceptive abilities were hacked, and who did it. Furthermore, as habitual behavior unravels, deeper memories of what the Anthropos were once capable of spontaneously emerge. I don’t know how you can get traction and harness these emerging abilities unless you live in a supportive and healthy indigenous community, or you recognize yourself as Rhomay within the Sophianic Vision Story. You don’t have to do anything else, unless you want to. Gaian Alchemy is the method for training your senses and imagination to track and participate in regeneration interactively.
I would guess that Gaian Alchemy might appeal to those with an interest in natural healing and want to learn more about the source of our innate healing ability and how far it extends. As the kalpa draws to its bloody end and the need for healing and regeneration becomes increasingly desperate, more possibilities of engagement open up for those who want to participate in Correction in this way. There is no fundamental difference between regenerating a limb or a forest, it’s simply a matter of scale, imagination and cosmic timing.
On a personal note, I’ve been through my own healing process and helped many other people through theirs. There is much more work to do in this area as so much damage has been done, but the focus of Gaian Alchemy is not on teaching people how to heal themselves or anyone else, although that will be a by-product. A certain level of health is assumed, as the physical foundation for regeneration, but human regeneration is only part of the regeneration of life that is happening concurrently with extinction. That said, I don’t think that our Divine Mother intended us to die in decrepitude, begging to be released from suffering, and 80 years or so is nowhere near long enough to learn and do all the things I want in this life. When I had a near death experience in 2005, I got a taste of freedom and an insight into the possibility of a different way of living. Something that the ancient alchemists knew, began to flutter in the margins of my memory. John Lash has combed through all the surviving material and included anything worth keeping in the Course on Gaian Alchemy. There is still some material to be discarded, now that we know that both Jesus Christ and Einstein were xenosh psyops, but the Course material is the cognitive foundation for regeneration. I’m not saying: put this into practice and you’ll live happily and healthily for as long as you want and die a natural death when you’re ready but, with everything I’ve learned and experienced so far, I’m strangely confident that this is an achievable goal, for some. It could take years of dedicated practice and it will also happen instantaneously and having something to aim for, a goal with never-ending dopamine hits – it feeds me through the times when I’m plagued by doubts.
Ko Hung, a 4th century Chinese Alchemist describes this path as the divine process.
“It has been said, “It is not difficult to enjoy Fullness of Life; the difficulty lies in learning the divine process. It is not difficult to learn the divine process; the difficulty lies in carrying it out. It is not difficult to carry it out; the difficulty lies in persisting to the end.” the master carpenter can give a man his compass and square, but he cannot guarantee dexterity. An intelligent teacher can give a man a written prescription, but he cannot warrant that he will compound it. Cultivation of the divine process is like the sowing of grain; success in it may be compared with the harvest. The field may be fertile and the water conditions perfect, yet if the right weather is not at hand or the hoe is not applied, the grain you have sown will merely form little mounds, but you will reap nothing. No matter how large your farm, there will be no crop.
The ordinary man not only does not realize that profit begets profit; he does not even realize that loss begets loss. To be sure, loss is more easily and readily recognized; profit is hard to recognize and reveals itself more slowly. If, however, facility is not realized, how can one recognize difficulties? Losses may be compared with the flame of the lamp melting in the grease; nobody notices what is transpiring until suddenly the light dies. Profit is to be compared with the sowing and cultivating of plants. Before anyone realizes it, the shoots begin to appear. Therefore, when regulating the body and nurturing its life, give care to the little things. Even a slight profit is not to be considered unimportant and left uncultivated, nor is a slight loss to be considered harmless and left unblocked. Greatness is always the accumulation of little things; a million results from an accumulation of units. If you can appreciate it when it is only a promise and perfect it when it becomes evident, you are close to knowing the divine process.”
Alchemy, Medicine and Religion in the China of AD 320: The Nei Pien of Ko Hung
On Death and Immortality
Regeneration does not mean immortality. The completion of the Great Work is not about achieving immortality. The Anthropos is not on an ascension path. That term is not useful, as it is designed to lead you up your own personal back alley to oblivion. It is, in fact, an elimination path – of which there are many.
Humans are mortal animals and the gods are beings of an entirely different nature. There are many mythological accounts of ‘intermingling’ between the gods and humans, including instances in which the gods have bestowed immortality on humans – such is their gift. However, this does not imply that humans can achieve immortality through their own actions, nor that there is any kind of evolutionary path for humans. Would you really want immortality? Certainly not without some very specific conditions attached.
The Great Work is not an instruction manual for immortality; that’s why I’m using the word regeneration instead. The re-discovery, the remembering of the ability to regenerate, the physical body and the planetary environment, perhaps even the cosmos at large is sufficient and complete. Completion is in itself a gift. What if you could regenerate for as long as you had appetency for life? Would you then welcome death as the final act of completion, “the ultimate moment of life”?
The Gaian Alchemy course as John Lash taught it, concluded with reference to an ‘incursion’ and by calling our attention to the Archer-Snaketamer-Scorpion-Scales tableau, for the clues it offers in dealing with this incursion. At that time, John had not yet written Not in His Image, or reconstructed the Sophianic Narrative, so he was working with clues leading to the definition of the problem, rather than clues to the solutions, as we are now.
At that time he wrote:
“In this tableau of the Southern Constellations, the Snaketamer is an image of the human as master of the Luciferic Impulse, and the Archer is an image of the Human as master of the Ahrimanic Impulse. Thus the constellations mirror us, show us ourselves in various evolutionary situations and postures, at the same time as they show how Mythical Beings have effected Incursions into our realm. The scales themselves are the image of Karma. It must be be noted that the Scales, or Balance, is the only one of the thirteen Ecliptic Constellations which is mechanical. As an image of Karma, the scales has two pans, two counterbalancing scales. The one knocked awry by the Scorpion is the Divine Scale; the one displaced though remaining upright, not spilling its contents, is the Human Scale. (So our “planetary physics in the human scale” has a specific mythic image behind it, you see.) The Scorpion itself is the image of Death, of the Ahrimanic-Satanic power that can lay waste to the Human Essense. In fine detail, the Scenario shows how the Ahrimanic Incursion into human affairs produces an upset or potential loss in the realm of the Gods (Divine Scale), which remains to be corrected by action taken in the human realm (Human Scale, which remains level, though displaced).
In it’s totality, the Scenario shows how the outcome of this situation (which we’re calling the Divine Dilemma) hinges on the human mastery of the Luciferic (Snaketamer) to restrain the Satanic (Scorpion) until the Human, evolved to a higher stage of self-empowerment and self-centering (Archer, oriented to the Galactic Center or Divine Source), can finally and ultimately overcome the dangers posed by the Satanic by transforming it through Love.”
The Course in Gaian Alchemy, John Lash
We now know that the ‘Ahrimanic Satanic power’ referenced in this excerpt is the archontic infection, presented in various guises as religion, democracy and communism, that drives the xenosh to kill or enslave humanity. The Luciferic Impulse is, more or less, a reference to narcissism and the false ego, to be overcome as you claim your identity as Rhomay. The transformative power of Love, is the Love that comes from the Aeonic Mother for the Anthropos, that can only be reciprocated when grounded in self love. It most definitely does not mean ‘love your enemy’.
Fast forward to 2008 (thereabouts) and we have some more clues regarding this cosmic tableau:
“The Thirteenth Constellation
Drawing the thirteenth constellation was the crowning moment of my long artistic experiment with the zodiac. This is Ophiuchus, the Charmer of Serpents, or Snaketamer, the figure that had to be excluded in order to introduce the new paradigm of psyche-cosmos mirroring, using the 12-sector format without stars. Its exclusion signals one of the more devastating turns in the history of our species, a very bad turn, indeed. By a striking coincidence, the starless Ptolemaic zodiac was proposed in 150 AD, the same year that Justin Martyr came out openly and attacked the Gnostics of the Mystery Schools. But this is no coincidence, because the suppression of the Mysteries has everything to do with the loss of the Snaketamer and all he represents: namely, the millennial tradition of indigenous shamanism in Europa, the Levant, and Egypt.”
“In Quest for the Zodiac, I suggested that the serpent imagery in the constellations might be connected with ancient knowledge of genetics and the DNA code. This is consistent with Jeremy Narby’s thesis in The Cosmic Serpent: namely, that the ancients, like some indigenous peoples today, had direct experiential access to the molecular structure of matter. I have proposed the term stellar-genetic continuum for the the linking of cosmic and earthbound biophysics that glimmers in ancient traditions, especially Egyptian sacred astronomy. Today interest in this link has given rise to a fledgling science called exobiology, the study of how life on earth is connected with life beyond earth.”
These two images provide graphic evidence of the significance of this connection:
The first image is of DNA magnified in with a scanning electron microscope. Image a is the DNA strand as it appears naturally. Image b is the image straightened out and the very bottom image shows how this is manipulated to be presented by CGI.
This image is of the Birkeland currents from The Electric Universe: Filaments in Space
Ironically, given it’s esoteric pedigree, Gaian Alchemy’s relevance today hangs on what it is able to offer in the way of recognizable solutions to the major problems humanity faces. At this unique time in the history of our species, the Aeon Sophia is creating the ideal conditions in which the fullest expression of the courage, genius, beauty and ruthless compassion of the RHOMAY will emerge, through the actions of each individual and not the herd. Those who choose to interact with Her directly, guide Her actions. The xenosh will be eliminated, there is no doubt about that, but you have to decide where and how you want to play. Some of the practitioners of Gaian Alchemy, will also be warriors, others will be artists, healers, musicians, gardeners, anyone to whom this appeals; the collective function of individual actions in this field is to stabalize the interaction between our Divine Mother and Her Magical Children and to bind it into phylogenetic memory, to make it easier for others to pick up and so that the Mysteries can never be lost again.
The return of the Snaketamer signals one direction for Gaian Alchemy going forward. Electromagnetic pollution and the even more sinister DEWs are one of the biggest challenges facing life on earth today, the earth is clearly going through Her own electromagnetic events and regeneration is electrical in nature. The weakening of the earth’s magenetic field is not a random event. It is calibrated and calculated to bring more energy into the system, that we need to work out how to use. Currently, Jupiter is completing a loop around the top of the Scales, as if to draw our attention to the human involvement in the Divine Dilemma and also because Thelete, via Jupiter is bringing more energy into the system. Jupiter (with the guidance of pleasure and the pleasure of guidance) overseas Gaian Alchemy. The completion of the Great Work, requires magnification or amplification. The weakening magnetic field exposes the earth to more cosmic rays, which generates more thunderstorms and more energy. Catastrophic weather events are a consequence and we have to learn how to deal with them.
Obviously, lightning generates photons and is there any significant difference, apart from location and intensity, between atmospheric photons and biophotons? Biophotons are emitted by all living things and are beginning to be investigated as the communication system for all cells across the organism. All molecules of a particular type dance to a particular rhythm, generated by photons in the DNA. Fritz-Albert Popp asked where these biophotons came from, but did not consider them as as a medium of communication with the planetary mind. Photons are the music of the stars and our Earth Mother is also a Star Goddess.
What if the instrument of communication is the pineal gland? The calcite crystals in the pineal gland have been discovered to have piezoelectric properties and I think they are being activated by atmospheric pressure. This could explain the particular kind of tinnitus people are experiencing? Actually, tinnitus is probably a misleading term, as it’s not at all like the kind of tinnitus that people describe as problematic ringing in the ears, I wouldn’t even recognize this effect as tinnitus. It’s more like a ‘stoppering’ in one ear only, for me it’s usually the left, in which external sounds get blocked out accompanied by a constant tone, not too high pitched, more like an old-fashioned fax machine. It only lasts 30-60 seconds. The big question is: how do we use this channel?
It brings to mind the image of this psychoacoustic pipe from somewhere in South or Central America: is this pipe simulating a natural effect that we are just beginning to remember?
The other big issue is the human interaction with time. I found the section on Time the most difficult in the Course, but I can also see how pertinent it is to this particular moment in time! It’s not time itself that will be destroyed at the end of this aeonic day, but the specific illusion of time shaped by Christianity and the over-arching control of clock-time – they have to go. But what will replace it? And how can humans co-create with Gaia, without the ability to manipulate time? More big questions for Gaian Alchemists. Time does not create gold.
The master principle for the Great Work, stated in the Theatrum Rosarium, a compilation of alchemical lore from the 17th century:
In all thine operations, let the Work be guided by nature, according to the slow progression of metals in the bowels of the Earth. And in thine efforts, be guided in all ways by the true and not the fantastic imagination.
“You are mistaken, blind one — false deity who cannot see. There is an immortal luminous child, the Anthropos, who came into existence before you and who will appear among your spectral forms (plasmata). This luminous child will trample you in scorn just as a potter’s clay is pounded (into a lump). And you will sink away to your proper zone, along with those who belong to your legion.
For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [of Archontic illusion] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and [that illusion] will be as if it never had been.”
I’m working on the Gaian Alchemy Course at the moment, editing it for publication on Nemeta and getting ready to start teaching it at retreats here next year. As always happens when you focus on anything to do with the Sophianic Mysteries, your attention intensifies the subject of study and brings it to the forefront of your life. Such is the alchemical process of magnification, right in your face. As such, I’m writing this in alt-reel time, as a work-in-progress and a taster of what’s to come.
In the Gaian Alchemy Course, John Lash describes the purpose of the ‘Great Work’, the incremental (increasing) aspect of the Human Effect on the Cosmos, as such:
“In simple language this means [the Human] must realize how to fulfill itself by giving out far more than it ever takes in, or needs to take in. This of course totally defies the second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy which states that any “energy system” will ultimately exhaust itself in the process of converting in-put and out-put back and forth.
But to defy entropy is quite presumptuous. A genuine alchemist will never make any fantastic claims that cannot be supported by the evidence of nature. If the alchemist sees far-reaching possibilities of the Human, the prospect must be verified through a real phenomenon already existing in nature, so that what the alchemist proposes can be seen as a natural extension of that phenomenon.
The notion of the Human extending and completing Nature is [summarized]: what Nature takes a long time to evolve, the Human finishes off in a short time. So far, we see mostly the destructive aspects of this dynamic. But the alchemists had another angle on all this. In many strange statements, they frequently referred to the Human as taking up the work of Nature and completing it.
“In the symbols and rites of metallurgical operations there comes into being the idea of an active collaboration of man and nature, perhaps even the belief that man, by his own work, is capable of superseding the processes of nature.” The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structure of Alchemy, Mircea Eliade.”
So my first question was: where is the evidence for Human increase, or completion of the processes of Nature?
One of my favourite methods of inquiry is to form a question and hold it lightly in my mind, resisting groping around for answers from any pre-existing knowledge or experience. Some patience is needed (not my personal forte) and after a while, at exactly the right time the answer is revealed through a series of ‘clues’. The Wisdom Goddess loves this game and guides you to what you are looking for, and more.
And She collapses Time in the process. The Aeonic Mother had, in fact, been guiding me to this question before I was even aware I had a question and had already set me up to begin exploring the interaction of minerals in the body – I’ve written posts on sulphur and iodine and in the blink of an eye, a book called Minerals for the Genetic Code, by Charles Walters, dropped into my lap.
I found this book very interesting. It describes the work of Dr Richard Olree who has created a ‘map’ that brings together several different ‘perspectives’ of the human body and finds the correlations between them. These perspectives are the Standard Genetic Code, the Walter Russell table of the elements (as opposed to the more familiar Mendelyev table), the relevant electric valences from the Mendelyev table, the amino acids that are coded, the vertebra of the spine, the meridians and the I Ching. The resulting map is called the Olree Biological Periodic Chart.
A Cautionary Note on Genes
Before I go into the main topic of this post, I want to make a brief comment on the subject of genetics: the theory that DNA makes RNA which makes protein is referred to as ‘the central dogma’ and is mostly theoretical. The more the genome is studied (in the mode of current science) the less is known and the only common ground is that the current view is incomplete, simplistic and not supported by evidence. Bruce Lipton’s research presented in the Biology of Belief, that genes are not deterministic of behaviour via the proteins they code, but responsive to signals from the environment that are themselves shaped by belief and perception, follows a well-developed line of inquiry.
“For biological research, the twentieth century has arguably been the century of the gene. The central importance of the gene as a unity of inheritance and function has been crucial to our present understanding of many biological phenomena. Nonetheless, we may well have come to the point where the use of the term “gene” is of limited value and might in fact be a hindrance to our understanding of the genome. Although this may sound heretical, especially coming from a card-carrying geneticist, it reflects the fact that, unlike chromosomes, genes are not physical objects but are merely concepts that have acquired a great deal of historic baggage over the past decades.”
Geneticist William Gelbart (1998)
Modern gene research bears a certain resemblance to Pasteur’s germ research, in which the theory with the greatest profit potential, ie one germ, one pharmaceutical to kill it, killed offthe superiorscientific research regarding how the organism responded to the environment, of Antoine Beauchamp. Today, you just need to identify the gene that causes the problem and money will be thrown at you to splice it out!
Watson and Crick won the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of DNA in 1962, after at least 10 years research into how DNA stored and replicated hereditary traits. The double-helix DNA model is familiar to everyone, but these images are all computer generated and based on X-ray crystallography, which involves scattering X-rays off atoms in crystallized arrays of DNA to form complex patterns of dots on photographic film. Images are then interpreted using complex mathematics. They are not real.
These images are of DNA strands, seen through an electron microscope, which sees electrons rather than photons. The first image (A) shows the chromosomes, which only come to light when the cell is preparing to divide. The bottom image is of chromatin, which is how DNA looks when it is not dividing.
I am considering the outrageous possibility that the Anthropic genome is not to be found in the DNA at all, but (at least in part) projected into the ‘vessel’ with the DNA acting as a receiver of sorts. Not so far fetched maybe if you consider the work of Luc Montagnier, joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008, who claims that DNA can send electromagnetic imprints of itself over distance, which can be used by enzymes to create exact copies of the original DNA. (See: DNA Waves and Water. ) He filed a US Patent on technology that can detect the ‘phantom replica’ of DNA, unfortunately without knowing that the US Patent Office is run by xenosh crooks.
Whichever way you look at it, genetics is far from settled science, so bear that in mind as you read this post.
The I Ching and Gaian Alchemy
When you’re hot on the trail, everything happens at once and this showed up right on time in Lesson 4 of the Gaian Alchemy Course:
“The three stages of the Great Work are Formation, Fixation, Multiplication. In the last stage, the multiplicatio or magnificatio in the old latin lingo, a condition of total porosity is achieved in the human mass, in the flesh.
The same idea is expressed with elegant clarity in the I Ching, or Book of Changes. The commentary on the 42nd hexagram, “I” or “Increase” says:
“A sacrifice of the higher element that produced an increase of the lower is called an out-and-out increase: it indicates the spirit that alone has power to save the world.”
And the text adds that “this conception expresses the fundamental idea upon which the Book of Changes is based.”
Infinity is Change. In this passage “I” is the exact equivalent of increment in the alchemical sense. An “out-and-out” increase must be one in which a new element is truly added to what is originally given.
Only a physics that excludes the Human could ignore this illuminating primary idea by positing the inevitable run-down of creation into a snuffed-out slag-heap adrift in aching emptiness.
But this is not our way.”
To know what and how the Anthropos does to complete the work of Sophia and Thelete, requires a shift in perception and the ability to hold that perception stable in the symbiotic mind and simultaneously act upon it. The Sophianic Narrative provides the conceptual framework for such a shift, which will lead to an actual physiological transmutation caused by recognition of the true material structure of the human animal and its co-creative functionality.
So, while drunk on this notion, I looked up what Dr Olree had to say about Hexagram 42. What a let down! He has Hex 42 linked with a STOP codon (which ends a transcription process) and Lumbar 3, which manages the legs and urination. That does not correlate with the meaning of ‘Increase’, which incidentally, he has translated as ‘Benefit’.
When I first looked at the Olree Chart, it struck me as odd that he worked from the bottom up on the spine, starting with the Coccyx bones, and correlated the hexagrams in reverse; so Coccyx 4 correlated with Hex 64 and at the top of the spine, Hex 1 with the Cervical 1 bone at the top of the neck. This makes sense as Hex 1 refers to the creative force, which tends to be associated with mind and the head, but it can also be taken as a reference to the initial conditions of the inception of life. The dragons refer to the telluric currents of the Aeon Sophia as She became the earth.
My copy of the I Ching says:
“When all the lines are nines, it means:
There appears a flight of dragons without heads.
So, I wondered what would show up if I reversed the order of the Hexagrams in the Olree Chart – I Ching ker-ching!
Tritium and Hexagram 42
When I reversed the order of the I Ching hexagrams in the Olree Chart, #42 correlated with Thoracic disc 5, the lung meridian (active at 4am), the amino acid asparagine and the element tritium (bebegen in the Russell chart).
This woman is indicating the location of Thoracic 5 on the front of the body.
In the Olree Chart, this point on the body correlates with tritium, also known as hydrogen-3 as it is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen.
According to the Wikipedia entry on tritium:
“The nucleus of tritium (sometimes called a triton) contains one proton and two neutrons, whereas the nucleus of protium (by far the most abundant hydrogen isotope) contains one proton and no neutrons. Naturally occurring tritium is extremely rare on Earth, where trace amounts are formed by the interaction of the atmosphere with cosmic rays. It can be produced by irradiating lithium metal or lithium-bearing ceramic pebbles in a nuclear reactor. Tritium is used as a radioactive tracer, in radioluminescent light sources for watches and instruments, and, along with deuterium, as a fuel for nuclear fusion reactions with applications in energy generation and weapons. The name of this isotope is derived from the Greek tritos meaning ‘third’.”
According to the Russian Wikipedia entry (which is different to the English version), it costs $30 million to produce one kilo of tritium.
Tritium is an odourless, tasteless, invisible vapour that is a transmutational element. It decays into helium-3, a radioactive isotope of helium.
This is part of what the Russian Wikipedia says about helium-3:
“Most of the helium-3 on Earth, preserved from the time of its formation. It is dissolved in the mantle and gradually enters the atmosphere, its isotopic abundance in the mantle the magma is 4-10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the10 parts per million parts of helium-4, and some of the materials of mantle origin, have 10-40 times higher ratio than in the atmosphere. However, its supply from the mantle into the atmosphere (through volcanoes and fissures in the bark) is estimated at only a few pounds a year. Some of the helium-3 is emitted in the decay of tritium, spallation reactions on lithium (under the action of alpha particles and cosmic rays) and comes from the solar wind. On the Sun and in the atmospheres of the giant planets of the primary helium-3 is much greater than in the Earth’s atmosphere.”
And this is an addition in the English Wikipedia:
“Production, sales and distribution of helium-3 in the United States are managed by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Isotope Program. Virtually all helium-3 used in industry today is produced from the radioactive decay of tritium. Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen and is typically produced by bombarding lithium-6 with neutrons in a nuclear reactor. The lithium nucleus absorbs a neutron and splits into helium-4 and tritium. Tritium decays into helium-3 with a half-life of 12.3 years, so helium-3 can be produced by simply storing the tritium until it undergoes radioactive decay.
Tritium is a critical component of nuclear weapons and historically it was produced and stockpiled primarily for this application. The decay of tritium into helium-3 reduces the explosive power of the fusion warhead, so periodically the accumulated helium-3 must be removed from warhead reservoirs and tritium in storage. Helium-3 removed during this process is marketed for other applications.
For decades this has been, and remains, the principal source of the world’s helium-3.However, since the signing of the START I Treaty in 1991 the number of nuclear warheads that are kept ready for use has decreased This has reduced the quantity of helium-3 available from this source. Helium-3 stockpiles have been further diminished by increased demand, primarily for use in neutron radiation detectors and medical diagnostic procedures. US industrial demand for helium-3 reached a peak of 70,000 liters (approximately 8 kg) per year in 2008. Price at auction, historically about $100/liter, reached as high as $2000/liter Since then, demand for helium-3 has declined to about 6000 liters per year due to the high cost and efforts by the DOE to recycle it and find substitutes.
The DOE recognized the developing shortage of both tritium and helium-3. and began producing tritium by lithium irradiation at the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Watts Bar Nuclear Generating Station in 2010. In this process tritium-producing burnable absorber rods (TPBARs) containing lithium in a ceramic form are inserted into the reactor in place of the normal boron control rods Periodically the TPBARs are replaced and the tritium extracted.
Currently only one reactor is used for tritium production but the process could, if necessary, be vastly scaled up to meet any conceivable demand simply by utilizing more of the nation’s power reactors. Substantial quantities of tritium and helium-3 could also be extracted from the heavy water moderator in CANDU nuclear reactors.”
Apparently, plans are underway for mining helium-3 on the moon!
And then there’s this:
“Despite the objections of local fishermen, the tritium-tainted water stored at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant will be dumped into the sea, a top official at Tokyo Electric says.
“The decision has already been made,” Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc., said in a recent interview with the media.
Tritium typically poses little risk to human health unless ingested in high amounts, and ocean discharges of diluted volumes of tritium-tainted water are a routine part of nuclear power plant operations. This is because it is a byproduct of nuclear operations but cannot be filtered out of water.
As of July 6, about 777,000 tons were stored in about 580 tanks at the Fukushima plant, which is quickly running out of space.*
“And I’m beginning to wonder, really wonder, if the timing a Fukushima with correction may not be one of the greatest lessons in duplicity that comes out of the GNE. Consider that Jupiter is now in the twins, I was looking at it about an hour ago, it was directly at the apex over the house here. Crystal-clear evening, the night sky, black as onyx or ebony. Brilliant figure of Orion, high in the sky. And to the left of Orion, Jupiter in the twins. The twins have a connotation of duplicity which is a form of evil and manipulation. But the twins also have connotation up doubling, and let’s say, let’s add to that, let’s add to the themes of the twins, the theme of a Janus like power. A power that has two faces, destructive and regenerative. Its obvious and the evidence is there as seen in the documentary clips in Hiroshima Mon Amour, that nuclear energy can be extremely destructive when it is made to explode in the form of a bomb. But suppose that coupled with that destruction is a regenerative power. Suppose that the much feared radio activity has, in Gaian terms, some kind of regenerative role. Who’s to say it doesn’t? We haven’t been exposed to it long enough to know. The evidence is skewed by the horrific connotations that go along with the word radio activity, radiation disease, and so forth. But in fact where is the evidence that radiation has produced massive mutation of our species since 1945?”
And a bit further on in the Briefing:
“Because you can search far and wide and I don’t think that you’ll find anybody, any scientist, any expert, or even any mystic telling you what is the place of radio activity in nature, in Her on Her terms. We didn’t invent it. Ever since 1945 the human species has been laboring under the illusion that we created Atomic Energy. This is ridiculous. Nor did we create the radiation that precedes from atomic explosions. We did not create that energy. She did. And so the question to ask is; what does She use it for? What is it? Maybe this is the moment to really turn the human mind around and to look at Gaian processes at the most elementary levels matter as if seeing it through Her mind and Her eyes. I do not feel confident about what I’m telling you now, but in a way I do, in an odd way I do feel confident. Here’s one thing I can say of which I feel confident. If nuclear radiation so-called, is actually a bionic excitation produced by the first attention of the Aeon Sophia, then it must be verifiable as such.”
“That is where correction begins, on the frontier of Gaian Alchemy… or frontiers because there are more than one. There are more than one frontier; it is a vast frontier, defined by those operations the Aeon Sophia performs through the use of her first attention. Whether she performs them at the so called elementary level of matter, in the presence of the radioactive minerals that occur naturally in the earth, such as uranium and plutonium, cesium, whether she performs those actions in the realm of biology and genetics, whether she performs them in maritime biology, in the chemistry of the oceans, whether she performs them in the dynamic chemistry of the atmosphere, the troposphere, the ionosphere, and whether she performs them deep in the physio-chemical and neuro-chemical recesses of the human animal. These are the frontiers of Gaian Alchemy. At the moment that correction dawns, so comes that opportunity. This momentous opportunity to reframe and revision the science the theoretical and applied science in those many domains where the operations of the Aeon Sophia are perpetual, and often inaccessible although ultimately not beyond the range of human investigation, experimentation and verification.”
And that is where I am now, on the wild frontier of Gaian Alchemy, launching off into a new adventure. So, what is tritium to the Planetary Animal Mother? And what is the function of tritium in the human body? What links Gaian Alchemy, Hexagram 42 and tritium?
I can’t answer those questions, yet. In the Aeonic timframe, we are barely into Correction, maybe 10-11 seconds, but everything happens at once in alt-reel time. I can barely keep up, which is why this exposition is somewhat rambling and inconclusive – to misquote some one: I had no time to write a shorter post!
In researching tritium/bebegen I looked to find what Walter Russell had to say on it. That will be covered in a subsequent post, but here’s a little curiosity to end with: on a site called www.merlib.org, subtitled the Modern Energy Research Library, at the bottom of the page on tritium is a link to a company called Trivortex – this is the company that Anton created, he who made the water discs for Nemeta. Coincidence or clue?????
