"Welcome Back, Aether..."

A Smiley Face knows we are all one
Is there an unseen, magical substrate permeating all of creation? Can we use it to create the things we want in life?

Past cultures thought so. They believed there was a substance in the space between all matter called the "luminiferous aether" or for short, "ether."

Is Prosperity Dead...?

No...The Road to Prosperity Has Not Changed...
While many things are changing in this particular cycle of sacred time, there are some principles of ancient wisdom that remain the same. Here are some we have observed:

Staying With the Hidden Rhythm of Life...

Sunrise sets the pace
A Hidden Rhythm...
Life has a hidden rhythm.  Society follows it.  It runs inside of us.  Monastic traditions observe it and it is an important part of Eastern medicine. Things appear to shift on Mother Earth beginning at daylight and continue at intervals of about 3 hours apart.

Following the light of day, eating meals at regular intervals and avoiding artificial light are ways to stay in sync with it.

Only Once in 25,000 Years...
On Dec 21st, 2012, the earth stood  further from the center of the Milky Way galaxy than it has in the previous 25,000+ years. This was thought by many to mark the beginning of a new paradigm shift for mankind.

Incense May Make A Lot of Sense

The following article describes how laboratory research has shown that burning incense may affect mood.
Religious leaders have contended for millennia that burning incense is good for the soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is good for our brains too. An international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describe how burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression.

The Seven Habits of Highly Healthy Nations...

 If you are looking for the actual habits that HEALTHY nations follow, this review does not cover that topic. We wrote it from our personal experience of the  mainstream, Disease Management system here in the United States.  It is a satirical review.   

And it is not a criticism of the dedicated people who work in it.  In our opinion, they no longer have control of it...

Take Your Silver and Shove It....?

No, we don't think that would be a good idea.

Silver and it's big brother, gold, have long been a store of value. At one time the currency of the world, silver and gold still shine. In this article we look at some ancient and modern uses of gold and silver and consider their value as currencies.

Why Gold and Silver Make Good Currency...
Traditionally, currency (money) has been something of intrinsic value that is easy to store and divide into smaller quantities. It's also easy to transport and trade for something else. It will not spoil or lose value over time.

True Currency Has Intrinsic Value...
To be true currency, an item must have intrinsic value. Something has intrinsic value because it takes labor to make it or find it; or because it has value as part of it's inherent qualities, such as the ability to conduct electricity or to burn as a fuel or to be used to keep warm. 

Commodities beyond precious metals fit this definition, including barrels of oil, BTUs of natural gas, animal furs or piles of firewood.  Spoilage, storage, ease of transfer, spiritual views and of course taxability, all become factors in the choice of currency.

True Currency is Equal to the Labor for Which it is Traded...
The labor a worker trades for currency should be equal to the value of the currency. If a worker trades his/her labor for something less than equal to the value of his/her labor, that would be a scam in our book.

Equal trade...
Silver Bars
Gold and silver meet this definition of currency, since these metals are difficult to find, making them rare and they take labor to extract and refine. 

In this regard, an equal trade of labor for labor takes place when using precious metals as currency.

But What About Paper Money?
Paper money came into existence as a certificate representing deposits of gold or silver.  Paper money made it easy to protect, transport and trade large quantities of the metals. 

Five Dollar Silver Certificate

Now issued as Federal Reserve Notes, paper dollar bills were originally issued as Silver Certificates from 1878 to 1964.  Silver Certificates could be redeemed for silver granules or bullion through the United States Treasury. As such they would be worth .35 ounces of silver at January 2016 prices, if they were still legally redeemable.

The same five dollar Federal Reserve note, on the other hand, if redeemed for actual labor production cost, would be worth .007 ounces of silver (about 10.5 cents) as of 2015.

Federal Reserve Notes came into existence with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  Federal Reserve Notes represent a type of currency often called "fiat currency," meaning "currency by decree".   They are not backed by any valuable commodity.  All of the currencies of the world are at this time considered fiat currencies.  Fiat currency make it possible for economies to expand through credit and can raise the standard of living for populations using them.  They are not a good store of value, however, because they lose buying power as greater quantities are issued.

Misconceptions about Gold's Intrinsic Value...
To the casual observer, gold may appear to be a somewhat value-less metal used for adornment in jewelry and not much else. However, a review of the use of gold in everyday electronics, aerospace, medicines, medical instruments, cell phones, computers and other areas reveals that it is widely valued for its commercial applications. 

Used in Billion-Dollar Projects...
Gold is especially valued for its long-lasting non-corrosive nature when used in billion-dollar projects, such as space stations. 

An excellent description of the many commercial uses of gold can be found at

Ancient Spiritual Significance...
Yet to be considered is the possibility that gold and silver may be conductors of energies beyond electricity.  Gold was viewed by the ancient Egyptian culture as having spiritual properties and was fashioned into objects of spiritual adoration.

Pyramids, Using Gold Caps -- Conductors of Scalar Energy?
As such, gold and silver may be conductors of certain scalar energies, not currently measurable and/or of public knowledge and therefore not considered to exist from a scientific perspective.
Schematics: Pyramid with gold capstone and Wardenclyffe Tower

The pyramids, using gold capstones, may have been used to generate this type of energy. This concept is recaptured in the work of Tesla's Energy generator known as the Wardenclyffe tower. The schematics for the pyramids and the generator are very similar, as shown.

The Gold or Silver Crown and the Crown Chakra...
Gold and silver's use in royal crowns of kings, shaped with spikes and seated on the crown chakra of the wearer, may be an indicator of an ancient awareness of the special energetic properties of these metals.

The crown chakra is considered, among other things, to be a connection point between the human and the divine.

Rethinking Gold and Silver as Currencies...
In summary, the value of silver and gold as industrial commodities, metals of beauty and possibly substances of special energetic properties should not be overlooked. Returning to the metals as a store of value is worthy of debate since all world currencies are presently "fiat;" and not directly anchored to anything of intrinsic value.  

Currency is life force in tangible form; and as such, its health and integrity determine the health and integrity of all societies.

Can Probiotics Make Me Even Happier......?

Image of Ms Muffet from children's nursery rhyme
Ms Muffet and
Her "Curds and Whey"--
a traditional fermented food
Fermenting increases probiotic content of foods and drinks. This article talks about fermented foods and the advantages of the probiotics they produce. In mice, researchers are beginning to link probiotics to improved mood because of their effects on neurotransmitters.

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are a dietary supplement containing live bacteria or yeast that promote normal intestinal flora. Loosely translated the word means "for life." A word probably made by combining the Greek, "bios" meaning "life" with the Latin word "pro." The word first emerged in the 1950's.

Kefir: An Ancient Use of Probiotics...
Kefir is an ancient fermented drink made from goat or cow milk and is often associated with cultures that traveled from land to land, people to people. Fermented foods and drinks, such as kefir, produce beneficial probiotic strains.

Probiotics Strains Improve Immunity...
Probiotics are associated with improved immunity.  It is thought by some that nomads intuitively understood this. Using a probiotic rich drink such as Kefir would have  been useful in warding off non-native, bacterial infections to which these travelers would have been exposed.

Probiotics and Improved Mood...
Likewise, ancient travelers became aware that this ancient fermented beverage also made them feel happier.  Such a recognition makes sense to us. We understand good mood to be the result of a healthy small intestine or "gut". The lining of the gut -- referred to as intestinal flora -- when balanced with beneficial bacteria, creates the proper culture for producing the neurotransmitters associated with mood.
