|Spiritual war, transhumanism and the transgender agenda Cache Translate Page||Modern media and public policy has reached a point where it cannot be understood except in the light of spiritual warfare: Good versus evil, God v the demons, Heaven v hell...|
Creation versus the Transhumanism - i.e Man claiming to have-become God-the-creator, and to offer (Here! Now!) an 'Alternative' and better 'Reality'.
Satan has a big problem - which is that he and we and everything are part of God's creation: how then can they be rejected?
The answer is to create what is claimed to be an immaterial Alternative Reality; to choose to inhabit that AR, and by denying that we have made such a choice to claim that the Alternative is really real. In other words, Satan is the lead architect of the transhumanist agenda.
There is no need for you to do a thought experiment and imagine this situation - we are already there (albeit not yet fully so) - with the transgender agenda that has been very rapidly and aggressively imposed by the entirety of the Western ruling Establishment over the past decade.
The transgender agenda (by which self-defined gender incrementally-replaces, completely replaces, sexuality) needs to be recognised as a component of the transhumanist agenda; and both as the major strategy of the demonic agenda in the spiritual war.
Because most of this analysis (God, Good, Creation) is denied; dissenters and realists in The West have been helpless to prevent the imposed-reality of transgenderism - which is now assumed by law, and dissent from which is punished by law (and, worse, by mass media and bureaucratic employers).
The trans-agenda should be seen as a perfectly rational step towards the kind of Alternative Reality that the demonic powers need to be successful in the context of God's creation. It is part of a world picture that has been building-up over several generations; which has denied God, Creation and Reality - and asserted that this world is humanly constructed ('socially' constructed). The 'Reality' in the phrase itself assumes that reality is man-made, at will.
The appeal of the AR is the promise of freedom and pleasure - since, IF the AR really-was equivalent to created-reality, then in principle we might make Reality any way we pleased; without constraint. For instance; people could choose to be men or women, and swap back and forth at whim! Differences between sexes, classes, races, nations, individual people could be made or abolished!
If all that was true and possible (which of course it is not) there would still be the question of Who Exactly Is In Charge? - and the overwhelming probability that they would be evil-motivated people, who would shape reality to their own selfish ends.
But the problem is compounded by the fact that it is evil demons that are in charge of AR - it is their project; and demonic motivations are different and worse than human motivations; and their agenda goes beyond the gratification of their their own short-term selfishness into the long-term desire for universal damnation.
And - finally - the the very desire to create and dwell in an Alternative Reality on the assumption it is the Only Reality is itself intrinsically evil; because dishonest, because prideful, because of its hedonic hence self-centred/ self-ish motivations.
At some level, perhaps deep, we all know this to be true; which serves only to make its denial more shrill and spiteful.
In a world that denies Good, the Creation and God; the desire for life inside a 'reality' built-around our own pleasures and preferences, yet wholly convincing, is so great that all objections are swept aside by this desperate craving.
And so, Ladies and Gentlemen (to use forbidden terminology): This is the modern world!
Here. Now. Compulsory!

|Comment on Animal Data Shows Fisetin to be a Surprisingly Effective Senolytic by scottalias Cache Translate Page||Michelle,
We're just guessing on the dosage, and self experimentation is hardly scientific. I've taken a thousand milligrams a day for 12 days, with 750 mg of quercetin a day and plan to continue for 3 more days.
My observations so far: I have less frequent urges to urinate, a symptom of BPH, I have slept through the night couple of times, for the first time in decades, and now get up once or twice a night to pee, a marked improvement which may have something to do with Fisetin.
For a couple of years, I have had an urge to drink a lot of water, over 2.5 liters a day, which my doctor attributed to my pre-diabetic condition. I don't feel the need to drink so much water any more and will be interested in my A1C and fasting blood sugar tests in January of next year. I feel like I may no longer be pre-diabetic. I have been carefully watching my diet and exercising for a few years, so this may or may not have anything to do with fisetin. I've also added a tablespoon of Moringa a day to my diet, which might be a factor.
I'm having some trouble sleeping. It takes a while to get to sleep and I wake up early and this is something I associate with the supplement so I look forward to the end of this experiment. My appetite has increased and this is not good because I am overweight, but I feel like exercising more, and am exercising more. The trouble sleeping is not that bad and if I still feel like this had benefits I'm going to do this again next year. I like to think this experiment may have delayed the onset of arthritis, dementia and a host of other maladies and look forward to scientific testing on humans, which should begin soon.
Transhumanist Runner, I'll try to remember to update this after January 8, when I get the results from my physical, my blood work and all.
Rice, I read on another article that positive results were seen with both daily dosing and intermittent high dosing, so, who knows? I also read curcumin had a similar effect in the same initial test but was not tested in high doses on mice because fisetin killed more senescent cells in the cell cultures, but not that much more. I think I might try curcumin next month, probably with the recommended dosage.|

|Instead of decoupling, we need recoupling Cache Translate Page|| |
Decoupling is not only a pipe dream, it is also not desirable, instead we need “recoupling”, re-embedding the human society and economy in the ecological context.
Proponents of the Green Economy and the like mostly claim that it is possile to maintain continuous economic growth while reducing our impact on the environment. It is certainly true that there can be instances and periods of relative decoupling, i.e. that resource use doesn’t automatically increase at the same rate as the economy grows. It is also possible to find examples of absolute de-coupling on national level for some environmental parameters. For instance, even if we include emissions embedded in imports, Swedish consumer based emissions of greenhouse gases have shrank the last twenty years while the economy has kept on growing. But that is if we measure greenhouse gas intensity, but there are many other resources used in the economy, which use have kept increasing. Decoupling through substitution is obviously possible and I doubt anybody claimed the opposite. Absolute decoupling of the total resources put into the economy is not only missing empirically, it is actually also impossible from a theoretical perspective. The GDP is basically made up of the cost of production, and cost of production is made up of labour, capital costs and resources used in the production. If a product or a service use less resources (including labour) prices will fall and the contribution to GDP will also fall. If you doubt it continue reading my more elaborate explanation here.
Be that as it may, I will also argue that “decoupling” is also not desirable.
Recognizing the modern agriculture wreaks havoc in nature and destroys bio-diversity in an alarming rate, many people turn to alternative ways of producing food, indoor farming, aquaponics, etc. Some go even further in their eco-modernism. In a recent article in the Guardian, Georg Monbiot asks:
“But could we go beyond even a plant-based diet? Could we go beyond agriculture itself? What if, instead of producing food from soil, we were to produce it from air? What if, instead of basing our nutrition on photosynthesis, we were to use electricity to fuel a process whose conversion of sunlight into food is 10 times more efficient?”
And later in the article he says ”yes it can” (well, not literally).
Most likely “we can’t”. Or we can but it will not be economically viable. Already in 1937 Time Magazine reported that hydroponics could be the way to produce food in the future. It worked already then, and it works today, but, despite LED-lights and all sorts of improvements it is still only commercially viable for weed, capsicum, basil and alike. There is basically no real food produced with this technology, despite 80 years of development.
People often mix up a theoretical possibility and even a technical break-through with practical and economic realization. The reality is that in each of these four steps just some 10 percent of the bright ideas survive. And for those that survive, the adaptation is mostly slower than expected, especially those that are essential for the material basis for human civilization.
But….Let’s assume that George is right. We solve that food dilemma with electric food produced out of thin air (which is in essence what he suggests). And we do the same for housing, transport and all other things we humans need. We let nature be by itself as we harm it as soon as we use it and live in it.
There is where he loses my interest. I think George is talking about de-materialization of the human civilization, and for me that is not an appealing future. As a matter of fact, there is little difference between this vision and the transhuman dreams. I believe there are many material reasons for why this dream will never come through, but my main objection is that it will not have any meaning. In that dream we have not only broken through the material limits for our civilization, we have also, literally, broken out of our skin, we don’t even accept the limits of our own body. Perhaps this is the Buddhist nirvana, but while it will free us from suffering and from all those annoying limits set by the material world, it will also free us from meaning.
The path to meaning – and real sustainability - is the opposite; it is through recoupling with nature. Instead of denying that we are an integral part of nature in which we swim, live, mate, laugh, cry and die, we need to embrace that fact. Instead of de-materializing economic growth and ultimately de-materializing humanity, we need to live in and by nature. We can only do that by re-embedding the human civilization, including its economy, in the natural world. By re-connecting to the land and relocalize our economy, we can also get meaningful lives.
Admittedly, that is no path that will be so simple and it will not always be smooth. But for me at least, it seems like a both more realistic and also more desirable future than the path humanity is at now, with or without electric food.
