NESARA -> History of NESARA

NESARA -> History of NESARA: "In early 1993, the nine US Supreme Court judges ruled seven to two in favor of the farmers on all major issues including that the Federal Reserve Banking system was unconstitutional, that the US has been operating outside the Constitution since March 1933, that major reformations of government and our banking system are required, and that financial redress and remedies must be provided for financial losses due to bank fraud suffered by generations of Americans."

World's Greatest Medical Advancements: Baseline's Alternative Health Newsletter

There is great failure in health care today

-- and, as a result of that failure, great pain and unnecessary suffering. And it is important that, as you discover how badly the modern medical paradigm is failing, you take great care not to assign blame wrongly. Yes, there are incompetent doctors whose practices we all abhor, and we wish they could never practice medicine again, but this newsletter is not about them. Neither is it directed at the thousands of faithful health care workers who go about their daily jobs. Specifically, my purpose in this newsletter is to confront the very foundational philosophy and system of the modern medical paradigm -- a philosophy that costs trillions and a system that promises hope, but delivers misery. No one, including many inside the medical community, can help but acknowledge these great failings. Sadly, for all our education and massive expenditures, modern medicine has failed miserably. You may wonder why.medicine, man, machine Modern medicine likes to trace its roots to Hippocrates, the patron saint of today's doctors. In truth, its roots rest more comfortably in the Newtonian views of the 17th century when philosophers and scientists defined the universe as a great machine. Physicians of that era were not immune to this influence and likewise began to define the human body as a machine. According to this "new" paradigm, the body could be analyzed, catalogued, adjusted, and repaired as required -- just like any other machine. This viewpoint became firmly established during the 19th century when the "body as machine" concept was taken to its ultimate, absurd extreme. The human body was no longer viewed as a holistic entity, but rather as a grouping of separate parts and pieces. Disease was no longer viewed as a body state, but as a set of symptoms. Ultimately, and so it is today, the province of medicine has become the observation, classification, and management of symptoms. According to this paradigm, disease or illness or injury manifests itself as symptoms entirely separate from the body as a whole (a decidedly non-holistic paradigm). The body is irrelevant. If the symptom can be eliminated (e.g., cholesterol numbers lowered through daily use of statin drugs), you are, by definition, now healthy.

In fact, there are some who would argue that today's medicine has even gone beyond treating the body as a machine -- that today's doctors have taken things to a whole new level of absurdity. They treat the body as a mere set of "numbers." When you go to your doctor now, he or she orders up a series of very expensive tests (blood work, PSA, EEG, etc.), each of which produces a set of numbers. Then, based on where your numbers fall relative to a chart of "normal" numbers, your doctor prescribes a series of drugs to move your numbers up or down so that they fall within the "norm." In this model, even symptoms don't matter -- only the numbers.

As it turns out, the body as machine paradigm works very well in surgical repair. If you break an arm, the doctor works with that part of the machine and repairs your arm. If you are wounded by a bullet, the doctor removes the bullet and repairs all of the separate parts of your body damaged by the bullet -- again, problem solved!

Unfortunately, the paradigm's failures become most evident when we look at the major diseases of our time -- cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, etc.

BUILD UP A COGNITIVE RESERVE

Research demonstrates that an active brain is associated with better cognitive health and a reduced risk of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. Researchers found that participants who spent time on activities such as reading newspapers, playing puzzle games, or listening to the radio frequently were 47% less likely to develop AD than those who did them less often. It's possible that these activities protect the brain by establishing a "cognitive reserve," helping it become more adaptable and flexible in some areas to compensate for declines in others.

DO DIFFICULT THINGS

Evidence shows that mental stimulation also enhances the brain's networks of connections and encourages "brain plasticity" (the brain's ability to physically and functionally change). Cross-train your brain by doing things you haven't done before, perhaps learning a new language or to play a new musical instrument. To stay sharp, Dr. Green advises that you continually find new projects and hobbies to challenge your intellectual skills. Take a class at the local community college or take a free course online -- universities that offer online courses at no charge include Berkeley University of California (http://webcast.berkeley.edu/courses.php)... Carnegie Mellon University (http://www.cmu.edu/oli/)... Massachusetts Institute of Technology (http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/home/home/index.htm)... and Tufts University (http://ocw.tufts.edu/).

There are many ways, both offline and online, to engage in fun, daily mental workouts that are efficient and effective:

November Forecast

November Forecast: "This Full Moon’s close alignment with Sedna at 20°40’ Taurus symbolizes a mass initiation into cosmic consciousness. Orbiting far beyond Pluto, Sedna functions as a spiritual gateway to higher dimensional realities. Sedna is a plutoid, first sighted in 2003 by the same team of astronomers that discovered Eris. Astronomical discoveries coincide with evolutionary leaps, reflecting the Hermetic truth “as above, so below.” Sedna takes 10,500 years to orbit the Sun and has a highly elliptical orbit, which varies from 76 to 975 AU (1 AU, or astronomical unit, equals the distance of the Earth to the Sun: 93 million miles). Sedna — discovered in the constellation of Cetus the Whale during a time of tremendous changes in the arctic and ocean regions — was named for an Inuit sea goddess who propagates and protects the creatures of the sea. Her command of a great sea dragon symbolizes the identification and transmutation of subconscious material. As a goddess, Sedna supports the development of the divine feminine and provides a link with the womb of our generative energies.

Neptune at 21° Aquarius very closely squares the Sun and Moon. Neptune represents spirituality and illusion, intuition and imagination. The mythic God of the Sea dissolves our existing concepts in order for us to experience a far greater reality that transcends death and the physical world. Neptune’s square to this Full Moon forces us to square our ideals with our current creations. What would we do differently if we realized that nothing is separate, that we are all part of the web of life? How would we live if we knew we were immortal and infinite spirits?"
