Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

Wednesday 26th April 2017


Hope this finds you fit and well. Here is a bunch of what flittered through my mind or crossed my digital desk over the last week. I hope you get something from it!

Ignorance Is Not Bliss, Nor Is It Always An Insult. In Fact, It Is Necessary!

Some people call another ignorant as an insult.
And if it is used related to an area about which you are knowledgeable, it could be taken as an insult.
But the truth is, I’m ignorant.
You’re ignorant.
Everybody on earth is ignorant.
About more things than you can mention.

There is so much to know, you cannot know it all.
You can never not be ignorant about something.

Life can be tough, discouraging and disappointing at times.
But the very wrongest thing to do is to reduce your awareness, like with drugs and alcohol.
More awareness and ability (courage, confront and resiliance for instance) is always better than choosing less awareness.
That just leads eventually to painful oblivion.

One of the more intelligent things to do is decide what you need to know and what you don’t need to know.
To identify about what things you can afford to be ignorant, and what you can’t.
To make a conscious decision to “not know” certain things.
And to make an effort to acquire the knowledge and knowhow that you decide is important for your survival.

And that has to be different for everyone.
And different at different times in your life.
For instance at present I can safely “not know” how to show a horse.
But don’t advise that to someone who keeps horses.
They’ll laugh you out of town!

Now some of the “I should know that“ topics are pretty common to all of us.
How to take care of a body.
How to manage oneself.
How to focus and persist.
How to relax and unwind.
How to resist the urge to be dishonest or unethical.
How to spot who you can and who you can’t trust.
How to spot a person who would lead you astray and how to decline their manipulations and stay out of trouble.

How to build the courage to do what is right regardless of how uncomfortable it is.
How to communicate appropriately to others.
How to understand our fellow man.
How to maintain our liking for our fellow man despite all invitations to not do so.
How to earn enough to provide for ourselves and our family.

And every day you interact with people you see results of the failure to learn these things.
Heck, I’m not holding myself up as a paragon of virtue here!
I’m still learning too!
Sometimes more than I think I should be needing to learn at this age too!

I guess this train of thought came about because my purpose in life is to understand.
So I could quite happily spend all day reading and sharing with people what I learned.
But there are other things to be done.
A dog to be walked.
Meals to be prepared.
A body to be exercised.
Groceries to be fetched.
Bills to be paid.
A living to be earned.

And because there are only so many hours in a day, that forces one to prioritise one’s time, if we are to be maximally effective we need to prioritise our learning.

To be continued... ...but in the mean time... ...start to compile a list of what subjects, topics and areas of life you personally wish to know more about.

Some Day The Earth Will Weep
John Hollow Horn

We each of us are continually choosing our future.
Our individual decisions combine to make a collective one.
Our actions decide our fate.
The thoughts we think, the decisions we make and the actions we take all combine to co-creates the future.
Either consciously and deliberately or unthinkingly, every thought we think, every dollar we spend and every action we take are a vote for the future.
How did you vote last week?
How will you vote next week?
Come off automatic and make calculated, pro-survival decisions and choices before you vote.
Both your future self and the planet will thank you for it.

The World Just Got A Second Doomsday Vault

In the side of a mountain atop the frigid wastelands of the Norway’s Svalbard archipelago sits the Arctic ’doomsday vault’ - an ominous facility that’s locked away close to a million seed samples from almost every country on Earth.

Designed to keep the seeds safe from nuclear war or some other global catastrophe, the Svalbard Global Seed Bank just got a new neighbour, with a second doomsday vault opening up nearby. But instead of storing seeds, this vast library has been built to ensure the survival of the world’s most important books, documents, and data.

“We believe that we can save the data using our technology for a whole 1,000 years,” Katrine Loen Thomsen from Norwegian technology company Piql told local broadcaster NRK.

Known as the Arctic World Archive, this new facility has been built into the same frozen mountain as the original seed vault, and is open to governments and research facilities from around the world as a place for storing their records.

Introducing Autism

DEATH BY VACCINE a history of virology, bacteriology, mycology and vaccination that has lead to many of the out-breaks and/or epidemics from the Spanish Flu Epidemic to Polio to HIV/AIDS to the Gulf War Syndrome and now to our latest epidemics of prostate and breast cancer, diabetes, obesity and the rise of autism in children.

A Facebook Friend Asked If She Should Get A Flu Shot...
Flu Vaccine

So I dug up some articles I have posted...

1. Study Finds Flu Vaccine Causes 5.5 Times More Respiratory Infections

2. Five consecutive flu shots increases your risk of Alzheimer’s disease TEN FOLD!

3. Even in 1918 Drugs Made the Flu WORSE. St. Louis suffered far fewer deaths than Philadelphia during the infamous 1918 flu pandemic.

4. Remember the H1N1 swine flu? As you may recall, the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic turned out to be a complete sham, with a fast-tracked and particularly dangerous vaccine being pushed as the sole remedy. Children and pregnant women were the primary targets of this dangerous vaccine. The H1N1 flu was a perfect example of how the CDC can brazenly distort reality, and often ignore and deny the dangerous and life-threatening side effects of their solution. As a result of this bogus propaganda campaign, thousands of people were harmed (and many died) worldwide.

In August, it was revealed that the 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine increased the risk for narcolepsy—a very rare and devastating sleeping disorder—in Swedish children and adolescents by 660 percent.

Finland also noticed a dramatic increase in narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix. There, an interim report issued in January of this year found that the H1N1 vaccine increased the risk of narcolepsy by 900 percent in children and adolescents below the age of 19. In the US, the H1N1 flu vaccine was statistically linked with abnormally high rates of miscarriage and stillbirths. As reported by Steven Rubin on the NVIC’s blog, the US H1N1 flu vaccine was SIXTY times more likely to be reported to VAERS to be associated with miscarriage than previous seasonal flu vaccines.

5. A September 2012 study led by Vancouver’s Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an influenza expert at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, found that people who received a flu shot before the outbreak of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic were more likely to get infected with the swine flu virus than those who didn’t take it.

6. Also, in July 2010, a report from Australia’s The Age found that influenza vaccines sent 100 infants into life-threatening convulsions, after which Australian health authorities were forced to reiterate a ban “on the use of Fluvax for children under five as a result of the convulsions which occurred at nine times the expected rate.”

I had a question asked of me after I posted a reply to a comment on a YouTube viedo

This was my response...

G’day Philip,

Happy to share my lay thoughts, for what they are worth. I became interested when it was time to look at vaccinating my own children. Bear in mind this was 30+ years ago now. I could not get honest, believable statistics from the mainstream sources. I read stories of adverse events being poo poo’d and not being reported. (This still occurs today.)

The more I read. the clearer became the picture. It was obvious that there was no science involved from the authorities, just an enforced viewpoint. Similar to the ignorant and abusive reply that I should shut the fuck up and just vaccinate my kids in response to my comment on this thread.

The less truth you have to support your view, the more you have to use authoritarianism and force to back you up. Force versus intelligence. One does need both to succeed but the evil and criminal are usually ignorant and have no truth to back them up so they have to rely almost exclusively on force.

Now, to your question. What is the difference between a vaccination and an antidote?

A vaccination is something purported to grant immunity meaning you will not get the disease or symptom set against which you are vaccinated.

An antidote is a medicine taken or given to counteract a particular poison.

I just asked Mr Google how many people a year get rabies. The CDC site was the first returned which said, “Every year, about 40,000 people receive a rabies prevention treatment called post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) because they had contact with potentially rabid animal. More than 90% of all rabid animals reported to CDC each year occur in wildlife. The animals that get rabies the most are raccoons, skunks, foxes, and bats.”

So they receive it “post exposure”.

Let’s forget for a moment any disagreement with vaccine ingredients or the potential harm ensuing from them, let’s just look at a cost/benefit analysis. Why vaccinate 300,000,000 Americans when only 40,000 will be exposed to potential rabies carriers in a year and there is a treatment for that exposure? (I am using US figures as we do not have rabies in Australia. Might explain some of the rabid people in the US but does not account for them in Oz so it is probably not the reason.)

Might profit be the motive in vaccinating a whole bunch of people who in all probability will never be exposed?

And, for the record, if my colloidal silver (which the US government found will prevent death from Ebola) or MSM did not cause an immediate reversal of the symptoms of rabies (which I have not yet researched so have no data one way or the other) I would take the antidote.

As to polio, the statistics showed the disease was fading fast even prior to the release of the vaccine.

One piece of logic that escapes the vaccine pushers. If my kid is not vaccinated, how is he/she a risk to your vaccinated child if vaccines work?

But fear and logic rarely reside together.

In conclusion I will say, as I often do, do not take anyone’s word as Gospel, even mine. Do your own homework, seek out and talk to parents of autistic kids and get their stories. Talk to the relatives of someone who died or was paralysed after receiving the flu shot or Gardisil. Listen to the stories of whistle blowers who will reveal the phenomenal lengths to which drug companies and the CDC hide the truth. Look at the stories of doctors like this one:

Archie Kalokerinos, son of a Greek cafe owner, with plenty of brains and a medical degree, bounced around the world getting experience - not settling to surgery, trying general practice - until a problem came to his attention which was to preoccupy him for the rest of his life.

That was the plight of the Aboriginal people, in particular the impossibly high infant mortality rate he encountered in regional NSW. In one Aboriginal community every second Aboriginal infant was dying. Kalokerinos adopted a radical “counter intuitive” therapy - boosting the immune system through nutrition - and brought the infant mortality rate there down to zero.

Here is a link to a blog post to which I have added over time:

Good luck in your quest for knowledge!



Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
