Have you ever considered how to use Alchemy to cook your food?

Well I have and this is what I've come to understand.

Humans need (or at least should have) a mix of both raw and cooked food to develop optimum health. The reason being is that, while raw foods contain the entire plant, there are many nutrients inside the cells that, if not chewed properly, or if the digestion is hindered in any way due to inflammatory disease, then we are missing a lot of the good minerals, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. One way to assist in the breakdown of plant cells and ensure that we get our fair share of minerals is to cook it!

However, cooking food also has its downsides. You see, when we boil, or steam our food, the water that evaporates takes some very important elements of our food with it, namely, the essential oils.

Millions of dollars (if not billions) of Andro's and Seth-Ra's tax money is being spent on research of the health-giving properties of essential oils at the moment and for the last few years. What scientists have discovered is that, almost EVERY essential oil from the foods that we use on a day-to-day basis have some type of specified health benefit.

So there you go Seraphim, essential oils ARE medicines.

So how do we get the best of both worlds? How do we get the aromatic carbon based essential oils that work like special hormones and steroids in the body to activate changes in cellular activity, while still getting the minerals that we need out of our food to allow for the electron transfers that happen between our blood and the cell, which power the whole show?

Well, up until now, we have had no way of making a compromise, and we simply choose whether or not we are going to eat raw, or cooked food.

Then, ElixirMixer was born, and the way we looked at cooking changed forever
(DIDN'T IT!) *shakes fist*

I have devised a devise, very similar to that which many of you have in your labs today, and this device is none other than, a refluxing cooking pot.

You see, rather than boil away all of these lovely aromatic compounds, we can capture them while we are cooking using all the same techniques we are already using in the lab, and re-introduce the essential oils from our food, back into our cooked meal, which actually enhances flavour, smell and health benefits, drastically.

This concept could take the cooking world by storm, and once i get my idea to Gordon Ramsey, he'll be telling me to fuck off and giving me a big hug at the same time.

If you think you've seen some kitchen nightmares, then wait till you see my lab after a slow cooked chicken korma.

Bon Appétit ;)

And ever since, part of our tax money went to funding ElixirMixers welfare lifestyle. We want our money back!
On a more serious note, have you done it and observed results? Or is it still speculation for now?

Food is a capacitor for "electricity", which is basically what the body runs on. Search Google for "electron transport chain". Whether the food is raw or cooked, if it has low to no "charge", it's basically dead. It's like eating empty batteries. The chemicals may be there, but they're "empty shells".

It's less a "successor" and more a "missing ingredient". If diets worked, we wouldn't still be searching for the perfect diet and have hundreds of new "diet" books published every month.
The actual food/diet is secondary. It's the charge that matters. And in this, we are already starting to somehow approach Alchemy.

There's no problem with carbs if grown locally and eaten in season. But eating bananas in Germany in winter means we're eating dead food. When looking for fresh fish in Berlin (no sea/ocean near), fresh fish (brought in on the same day it was caught) costs 10 times more than canned/frozen.

Another example: Being a vegan inside the tropics may be wonderful. But being a vegan in Northern Europe/Scandinavia all year round can have bad outcomes in the long term. I don't have time now to expand more. Maybe at a later time. I've been studying the "Electric Universe" model as of late and it has some very interesting ideas...

Well Andro is right, the body DOES run on electricity; the electron transport chain is used to "recharge" ATP molecules which are a phosphorus compound that 'fire' about 60billion times per second and run over 80% of the metabolic processes in the body, with a few other energy containing molecules that do a few thousand specialist jobs. ALL however rely on electron transfer from electrolytes in the blood (aka the minerals i was talking about sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium ect) blood to cell, from cell to organelles, from organelles like mitochondria, to ATP molecules; which do a huge host of things, most important of which is fuel RNA and amino acids to compile new DNA's to try and attempt to slow-down the inevitable fact the the universe is ripping your body apart over the course of 80 or so years.

Yes I have performed this, and it indeed improves the quality of food, as you would expect, since essential oils hold a lot of taste and smells. I tried it with vegetable soup.

I am still working on my design for an easy to use cooking pot distiller however.

What's wrong with the Spree, the Havel and all the canals for getting fresh fish? Ever considered getting yourself a fishing licence?

I agree with your local/seasonal diet, though it can sometimes be complicated too and I see it more out of geo-ecological reasons. Agriculture is not like it used to be severel decades ago. I don't really get your banana example though. Especially the carbs contained in "exotic" fruits can lead to an increase of body fat. Especially those freshly pressed drinks aren't really that good for a diet because of the lack of roughage. Maybe we have a different definition of "dead" or "no charge". Those out-of-season-, or far transported foods can be smeared on the hips, or used as energy supply (for example cardiosport people consider bananas to be very useful for them. Even in winter) too.

Not if you live at the equator, or at least inside the tropics.

Even sub-tropical is better than latitudes above 30.

And if you don't have the latitude, go for altitude (higher solar/UV yield to "charge" the foods and our own internal batteries), like those Tibetan monks in the Himalayas... Or those who live in the Alps (Swiss/Bavarian/etc)... See Alexander Wunsch for the importance of sunlight and the toxicity of artificial light.

One example that genuinely stands out is someone like Wim Hof. The guy is vegan and also a smoker, but he can get away with it, because he uses the Cold to trigger the body/mitochondria to generate heat and to activate the body's own internal "pharmacy".

The electrical model of the body has many repercussion for the way we look at our foods and what we eat. Back to discussing the preference of BOTH minerals and essential oils, lets take a closer look. Ill go get my University Biology 101 book so that i'm not talking shit.

But first, to warm up the digestive tract...

Carbohydrates. What are they? What do they do? A lot of people just think of them as basically large sugar molecules, which can make us fat and which can also lead to minor brain damage with extended over-use, however, that is only part of their function. Carbohydrates act similar to sterols (such as CHOLE-sterol) in that they BOTH are signalling molecules. What that means is that they indicate, to other proteins and enzymes (enzymes are specialised proteins that catalyse reactions that could otherwise not occur in the body) whats going on in a cell.

When, lets say, a red blood cell, passes over another tissue cell, carbohydrates and cholesterol are protruding (sticking out of) the tissue cell, calling out to the blood cell, asking it for something in particular (like oxygen), or, alternatively, is could be calling out for a protein or maybe a hormone instead, depending on what kind of signalling molecule it is. So its good to understand that carboydrates, cholesterols and these other "bad" words, are often put in a bad light because of what can happen when there are too many of them.

Carbs need water to brake down, which makes them pretty water hunger and can leave the body dehydrated, as well as the whole insulin problem.

Cholesterol can build up and is very sticky, clogging tissue cell walls and making it hard for them to 'breathe'. But what about Ganoderic acid, which can be found in the Reshi Mushroom? Of a similar breed to cholesterol, it also sits inside the tissue walls of a cell, signalling out, however, instead of beinga greedy bugger, its actiually a helpful and diligent messager, acting to protect the liver and reduce tumors (in a way that is beyond the depth of this convo)

And ALLLL of that sweet blockbuster action is ALLLL electric. This is because of the different amount of electrons (to put it simply) that each molecule has, which can give it a positive, or a negative charge and also, mini differences in charge, whcih we call voltage gradient. A voltage gradient is kind of like electric osmosis, ya know, water wants to go and seep into things that are dry. The water will try and balance out itself in a container by making everything equally wet, to the best of its ability. Electricity will do the same thing. If the charge in the blood stream is higher than in the cell, (Which is Always most certainly is or you'd be in big trouble) then, using electro-lytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium ect...) the electricity with go through the 'electron transfer process' which we call a cascade(because it requires many steps) in order to pass electrons from one side of the tissue cell (the blood side), into the other (the Gatorade side lol (electrolyte juice))

WHICH brings me back to MORE EPIC important points about another relevant topic of todays discussion. ORMUS.

IF ormus IS what they say it is (super-conductive, bio-available heavy metals) then these would be GREAT to imbibe into the human body where-ever healthily possible, due to the fact that they easily and effortlessly, with no lose or heat, transfer electricity.

Healing of the body, as Andro I believe insinuated, is about CHARGE. The higher the charge we can build, and the greater our capacity to store that charge, the healthier, happier, and older you will end up being.

Oh, forgot to mention, Essential Oils are important for a multitude of reasons, some which we have discussed aka, many of them behave as positive, helpful signalling molecules, which can tell a protein, "hey man, dont give away your potassium to the greedy carb over there, give it to me and ill send it to the thyroid where we can turn it into an effective hormone." as an example, while OTHER essential oils, have benzene rings within there structure, making them great and carrying and storing electricity(electrons) and shuttling them to their own designated favourite places in the body.

NOW, ill go get the biology book cause im out of ramblings.....

So im just going to power through here with only the most interesting of facts until we get to the electron tranfer chain which ill explain in detail and then we are done.

Carbs , chemically, are very chemically similar to oils and fat, except have more oxygen and tend to be more water soluble.

The DNA backbone is made of three parts. A phosphorus oxygen complex, a molecule of sugar (see, absolutely essential) and a nitrogen complex (which is the little letters ATGC) So whats the meaning of life? Phosphorus, Nitrogen and Sugar.

Proteins are built, from DNA, out of amino acids. There are ENDLESSLY complex, there are millions, if not billions of different types of proteins that ALL have jobs to do, some proteins so several jobs at once (which is fucking amazing) some do signalling, some work as catalytic factories, some work as transport gate keeps, the list goes on.

FAT is also extremely nessesary. Without fat, you dont have cells. Fullstop. They are the wall of the cell, and they also work as transport pathways to get rid of toxins and bring new things into a cell.

Okay, now we're getting to the good shit. First off, organelles are the mini organs in a cell. The main one of importance in the discussion of electro-chemical energy in the (human) body is the mitochondria. NOW...

When we breathe, we bring in oxygen. This oxygen (typically) will be used by special protein enzymes to begin a very important reaction. Oxygen burns fuel in our body (most often glucose, which is found in sugar or carbs) and, just like alll other combustion reactions, produces carbon dioxide, water, and energy, in this example, Charged Hydrogen molecules (so one proton and one electron), these Hydrogen molecules jump in a NAD+ taxi, he turns on his light and becomes a NADH

This NADH taxi goes for a bit of a joyride, this is the part that we call a cascade, where it goes and visits some enzyme friends and has a chat before dropping off the electrons at the Mitocondria. These are special friends, which have given access to the VIP section of the cell, after all, the cell is a closed community, and we don't want any freeloaders getting in, so we have doormen, (and women?). When it gets into the mitochondria, we meet two old friends of ours. Phosphorus and Citric Acid. Who would of thought that its in fact, lemons, that make the world go round ey? Suck on that, Rockafella.

Now, while glucose breaking down, and citric acid make some ATP on there own, when there in the Mitochondria hot-tub, hanging out with phosphorus, things get very steamy. Huge amounts of ATP molecules are produced and exported as live goods to china, i mean, the Gadoraid soup, where all the cells labour is done for cheap.

Then, you take another breathe, and all of a sudden, the weekend starts all over again.



This is, BTW a VERY VERY brief overview of the biological transfer of electrons from fuel and oxygen, to your cells, which are converted into a special phosphorus molecule called ATP which acts as a 'gun', which can 'fire' energy into other molecules (mainly proteins) and cause reactions and effects in those molecules, which cause every single process in your body to occur. 60 billion times a second.

For an in-depth look, which will basically go deeper into what kind of proteins do which set of processes, You can refer to basically any University level Biology 101 book. This one I have is highly reputed and is called simply "Biology, Concepts and Connections" - by CAMPBELL, REECE, TAYLOR and SIMON (last names)

Sometimes it seems that you prefer to "poke & provoke" rather than learn from what is shared :). It's pretty darn obvious I'm not going to relocate to the friggin' desert! (or any arid/semi-arid areas without a good water supply). The Canaries (for example) are a bit on the arid side, but there are "green belts" more inland, and there are springs as well.

The best in the EU would ideally be the Canary Islands (below 30 latitude). Technically part of Spain, but geographically West of Morocco. Or go to the Alps or Pyrenees for the altitude. OR - harness the Cold (see Wim Hof example).

For someone in the US, go for the Bible Belt! LOL :) Anywhere along the lines of Key West - Alabama - Louisiana is good (Gulf of Mexico) - but better avoid locations with high population densities.


Do you know Wunsch personally?
What if I did? (I don't)

His lectures are available in both German and English (https://vimeopro.com/alexanderwunsch/alexander-wunsch-in-english).


So you can eat more without having to be afraid to become a meatball? ;)
Was that an attempt at humor? :D Actually, the better the solar "yield", the less you need to eat, BUT you need to embrace the outdoors for it to work. If you live inside the tropics but spend most of the time indoors at a computer or something, you WILL get fat, even if you eat less.


That's really interesting. I would appreciate it if you could tell more about this.
Everything I wrote about can be researched online or in books. One clue leads to another. You can look up interviews with Wim Hof, if interested.

Can confirm, its worked well for me for the last 27 years. ;)
Also can confirm to avoid high population areas; they tend to suck. But the Bible Belt has a pretty nice climate for the Work, and for some natural internal workings as discussed here, and with the various rural locals, no one will bother you either, usually. :)

If you deeply look into the workings and actions of the electrical nature of everything, as well as the generally perceived nature of the body (chemical/physical/biological), and even other bodies (systems, planets, etc), you'll start to notice that its not so much any singular "thing" (like electrons/charge) as we think of "things" (matter/energy), but something more, and something its all trying to communicate at each level of being. The pattern is there, in what EM last posted, just has to be seen. ;)
Then you'll be cooking with Alchemy. :D

Sorry! It honsestly wasn't meant this way. I was referring to this quote of yours:


Not if you live at the equator, or at least inside the tropics.

Even sub-tropical is better than latitudes above 30.

You haven't mentioned moving yet and I could not imagine what it is that is better in the sub-tropical zones (I just mostly know pictures like that I posted from that areas - exceptions may exist though). Especially when it comes to food (the topic of the discussion), because there the people have almost nothing to eat usually. If anything, claiming living in the sub-tropical zones like Sahel because of food/health-benefits is a provocation imo (but I did not understand it that way). So I just did not understand you here (and still don't). Maybe you meant something else?



What if I did? (I don't)

Just out of curiousity. You seem to know quite a lot interesting people and Wunsch's claims are interesting imo.



Was that an attempt at humor? :D

Yes it was! Therefore the smiley to better get it ;)

Actually I don't know why you want to move:

So do you want to safe money, because you will be feeded by the sun? Do you want to keep your physical appearance in good shape in doing so? Do you want to live healthier with this way and prolong your life (then again: what for?)? Maybe you have other (alchemical) reasons too? Antonius A.

To naturally make more vitamin D, to put it simply. Higher solar yield, higher UV index, etc... I don't really thrive in cold climates...

And during summer, you''ll likely to find me naked in the sun at the FKK beach on the Müggelsee :)

What's your opinion on sunscreen? The other (literally "dark") side of this "light therapy" seems to be the danger of increasing the possibility to get skin cancer.

Claims to me are strange when I notice a more or less contrary message than the one I know. Then I usually want to know more..

That whole ATP/ADP+P thing for example is neither really new, nor special. I'd rather speak of "energy" than "electrons" in that case. But the term "energy" in itself can be worthwhile to discuss somewhere/somewhen else.

What's your opinion on sunscreen? The other (literally "dark") side of this "light therapy" seems to be the danger of increasing the possibility to get skin cancer.
My opinion is that sunscreen is more likely to cause skin cancer rather than prevent it. There are even certain rather complex mechanisms to actually CURE certain diseases by triggering an inflammatory response in the skin via sunlight exposure. Listen to the online lectures of Dr. Wunsch, even in the English ones he explains the building of the solar callus, the negative implications of sunscreen and the importance of GRADUALLY adapting oneself to the sun (i.e. optimizing our own "photovoltaic" panels - mainly the eyes and the skin - to make the most and the best out of NATURAL sunlight). Especially for fair-skinned individuals like probably most of us white folks here :)

There are no serious studies (that I know of) linking responsible UV exposure to the more "deadly" skin cancers such as Melanoma. The more "gentle" skin cancers (such as BCC) are also not proven to be caused by sunlight, but those can be easily removed, even WITHOUT surgery (there is a natural Heilpraxis in Berlin that does just that). Also, if you want to confuse a dermatologist, ask them, if UV light is SO dangerous, WHY do they use it in treating skin conditions such as Psoriasis?

I myself was completely cured of a certain anatomical anomaly I had in my legs/knees when I was 1.5 years old, simply by spending every summer in the sun and every winter in the mountains (plus UV lamp therapy in the winter and prescription-grade fish oil, with enhances UV absorption, especially in more sun-deficient countries). The condition was completely gone in 2 years and never returned.


worthwhile to discuss somewhere/somewhen else.
English is such a weird language! Although we can translate "irgendwo" to "somewhere", we can not translate "irgendwann" to "somewhen" :)

I don't know about using spagyrics with food, or which foods have the highest electrical charge. But I've spent a long time experimenting with nutrition and have settled on the following foods lately for my "perfect" diet. Of course, all foods contain something in them which is unwanted...but we just have to weigh the costs and benefits. I also think different people are sensitive to different foods, so your mileage may vary.

Salmon/Trout/Char
Eggs (fed with flax to boost epa/dha)

Lentils (can be made into flatbread and pasta)

I also love raw grass-fed milk, but some people have issue with the lactose.
You can ferment it which takes care of that mostly, but it still contains angiogenic proteins.
Seriously though, I drank around a gallon a day of raw milk for a couple of years. :o

Also, if you "activate" you food with sunlight, you'll get even more benefits (if you aren't already).

Alchemy = Diet

That is what it is all about. If alchemical thinking is not part of the food you eat/make, you might as well give up. Diet Work is key in all spiritual and physical practices. So much in fact that I am surprised we don't have a "diet/food/cooking/nutrition" section in the forum.

Great Lakes brand pastured/grassfed unflavored beef gelatin if you're mixing it with something.
Collagen Hydrolysate tablets are more convenient though. I take around 6 grams a day.


Also, if you "activate" you food with sunlight, you'll get even more benefits (if you aren't already).
I read part of this interesting book and had forgotten about it until you brought this up. Check out the amazon price...
http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Power-Sunlight-Jakob-Lorber/dp/1885928106/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1548709255&sr=1-10

I would also add oysters/shellfish and coconut oil in one form or another... And/or Ghee...
I love oysters, especially for the zinc. But they're pretty pricey. I could drive to the coast and harvest them, but pollution is a concern. Shrimp is cheap enough, but really low in omega 3. I used to eat much more butter/ghee but have been focusing more on monounsaturated and omega 3 fats lately. The salmon and eggs have a good amount of sat fat. Between coconut oil and butter/ghee I chose the butter/ghee because it has a significantly higher smoke point and it allegedly boosts cognitive abilities more than coconut oil...
http://quantifiedself.com/2011/01/results-of-the-buttermind-experiment/


Aren't you getting enough EPA/DHA from the fish?
I want to aim for at least 2 grams per day of combined epa/dha. This takes around half a pound of fish per day. This can get old, so it's nice to have an alternative. But the eggs don't contribute much. I just do 3-4 raw eggs per day in a smoothie with blueberries and blackstrap molasses. I eventually get sick of eggs if I cook them daily...but never tire of the raw ones.


Also, what water are you drinking? (if any :))
That one I'm not so proud of. Just gallon jugs of distilled water. I actually have well water but it is filthy with oxidized iron and I need a $500 backwash iron filter to get rid of it. Then an ultraviolet filter to kill well bacteria. I've been putting this off for years. But I also have an apple orchard next door and the asshole sprays pesticides every year and I don't know if that gets into the water table eventually. So I'm just sticking with commercial distilled for now. It's a shame because there is an unbelievable amount of crystal clear water oozing out of the ground in this part of the country...I just need to buy a property with it. I could fill barrels with spring water from the national parks and take it home, but I've been too lazy to do that.

"Exposer" after it's inside you. Ideally, if it's grown/obtained locally, fresh and in season, it's already "alive". But for a more holistic/"organic" activation, expose yourself to the sun, to trigger your internal pharmacy and inner mechanisms of transmutation. We also "eat charge" through the skin, so if you have a pool (non-chlorinated) or live close to a river/pond/lake/sea/ocean - dive in and then dry out naturally in the sun. The towel is your enemy! The water, being colder than your skin's surface temperature, brings your blood vessels closer to the surface (as your body attempts to re-heat the surface) and therefore light absorption into the bloodstream is enhanced, as UV doesn't penetrate very deep. I've read somewhere that Russian athletes have been light-doping since the 1920s :)

I personally don't see a "general" US mentality. This place is so big it contains numerous different cultures/mindsets. Maybe that's why it can be difficult to "figure us out". It's like trying to psychoanalyze all Europeans as a single mentality while dealing with both conservative Italians and liberal Swedes. They can be totally different animals. We have over half the population that the entire EU has. Our states are the size of your countries. People like to judge Americans as a single entity, but it's actually a relatively diverse country for a white dominated empire. They don't call it the Great Melting Pot for nothing. Of course the EU is more diverse in terms of cultures/languages, but it is also composed of completely different sovereign nations.

It definitely has its flaws, particularly with the ridiculous bipartisan plutocracy, "federal" reserve, and military industrial complex. But if you want good weather, good soil, 1st world conveniences, cosmopolitan cities, national parks/forests, mountains, oceans, and abundant gold deposits....this place isn't bad. You could do much worst.

Hawaii has really nice volcanic soil. I'd love to grow my plants out there to see if they turn out different.

And it is strongly dependent on what you (and I) believe.

Not unlike Alchemy, nutrition is rather independent of what one believes. It's not for nothing that Alchemy teaches us to "study and follow Nature". The same goes for nutrition. We must eat according to our nature, the one inside us and the one surrounding us. We do better when eating according to our natural cycles (circadian, diurnal/nocturnal, solar, lunar, etc). We must understand that nutrition cannot be separated from the environment we live in. We must understand that the food itself is secondary and that light is the main ingredient in our nutrition (we basically operate on an adapted/upgraded version of photosynthesis :))

Other significant ingredients in our "nutrition" are what we do in our every day lives, the environment we spend our time in, the people we surround ourselves with, the thoughts we think, the feelings we feel, our goals and our dreams... And let's not forget what we put on our skin... I would say: I you won't eat it - don't put it on your skin. You get the drift... Other than that, we can never be sure. We'd better follow the example of Dendritic Xylem and test to find out what works and constantly adjust accordingly.

Also, if one is, for example, into longevity - I don't recommend taking longevity-related nutrition advice from people under 80-90... I'm not kidding! Also, nutritional advice from fitness gurus will be quite useless if one wants to eat for longevity or even great health. Many super-athletes (especially endurance athletes) are completely "broken" on the inside, even if they look like Greek gods on the outside. How many centenarians have you seen who look like that? And don't listen to people under 35-40 for nutritional advice either! In most cases, their power plants (mitochondria) are still in good working order without requiring any special attention, and they can get away with pretty much anything. Wait until they enter their 5th and 6th decades and see how they're doing then :)

Another good idea is not to settle into a permanent repetitive diet, but rather "cycle" what one eats. Eat different foods for different seasons, because unless you live in a tropical rain forest, food availability will likely vary with the seasons. And it's perfectly OK to gain some weight in autumn if you live at a higher latitude.

These are not "ism"s - these are just simple observations of what occurs in our environments and a bit of basic common sense.

There's one guy on YouTube who promotes a certain protocol of drinking juiced plants/fruits and distilled liquids in general, including one's urine. He's American, but guess where he lives? Colombia. And where is Urine therapy popular? Southern India. How many Sherpa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherpa_people) practice "urine therapy"? Another guy (German) used to offer juicing retreats with seemingly miraculous cures occurring as a result. But guess where he offered those juicing retreats? Costa Rica. Those food gurus probably mean well, but they completely ignore the environment. And let's not forget the HUGE supplement industry that comes with the various promoted diets that don't account for the environment and the solar yield.

In other words: Unless you're a Lion from Zion - don't be a Vegan in Sweden :)

Yeah im on the anti-coconut oil train. There are many better oils available. Who can beat the Virgin Olive? And for frying, I choose Rice Bran.

You should take a seat, because there is a rant coming...

Canola Oil is the Devils bastard child. Canola wasnt even a 'thing'; it used to be called "rape-seed" and was completely poisonous, to humans, animals, and insects. Rape-seed contains a compound called eurcic acid which is a ppision to the heart proteins and would literally kill you. It was genetically modified by a Canadian gentleman, who named it after his beautiful homeland, to have less of this harmful heart melting acid. The regulations state that two percent eurcic acid is acceptable; however some "vegetable" oils (fuckin bastards calling it that, there is no vegetables in vegetable oil, only canola which is a weed, check the ingredients if you dont believe me)... anyway... SOME vegetable oils contain as much as 7% eurcic acid still, which is extremely bad for the heart and can be easily used as a natural pesticide. If thats not bad enough, lets talk aboit TRANS fats.

TRANS fats do not exist in nature they are a man made concotion, which happens when boiling oils inside of nickle pots with a dash of.. (HCL i think?).. in order to add additional hydrogen to the product, to apparently lengthen shelf life.

These fuckers are feeding you a deadly poison, sticking it in almost ALL of your processed foods, and then using distraction and giving you the run around about hwalth health and nutrition, to make you look at everything BUT the main ingredient in all of your foods.

Rapeseed.

I find the name very appropriate.

I believe coconut isnt the best but its not the end of the world; what I dont like however, is that they are trialing coconut oil on babies now to assist in weight gain. There are so many better oils available and our little ones should be getting the best, not the cheapest and nastiest we have to offer.

Another point I want to offer for consideration:

Fermentation may preserve Charge.

Let's look to our grandparents (especially in temperate and colder climates). Preserving meat in salt for winter... Fermenting veggies... Also, let's not forget Wine! Grape skins are like solar batteries, and fermenting them into wine actually preserves the charge. That's why some wines are so expensive and often named after regions (= quality of soil, environment and UV index, among other factors). Look at the Mediterranean diet and the "French Paradox", with their wine snobbery and stinking cheese :)... Etc...

Florius Frammel

That's right. I absolutely agree with your regional/seasonal nutrition suggestion. Now I think I got what you mean with sun radiation and it's accumulation in food/humans of the environment. Interesting theory.

And according to this theory, we who are living in tempered/colder climates should be living on fermented/conserved food (almost) only in winter. There is not growing much outside these months. Be it cheese, fruits, vegetables or sausages. But then you probably would have other problems because of the (problematic) additional substances they put in to get better conservation results.
One would need to do everything on his own (a phrase sometimes attributed to the alchemical process as well).

That means: cheese-making, fermenting fruits/veggies and slaughtering animals.

And if not moving, get enough sun on our eyes and skin during the sunnier months, so our vitamin D and hormone production can last enough for winter. OR take a vacation every winter in a warm sunny location. Many Northern Europeans do this. In the South of Gran Canaria (the more "touristy" area), menus and other info is presented in German, Dutch, English and lastly, Spanish :) And when we walked down one of the "food streets", almost all local restaurant owners addressed us in German :)

BTW, isn't wine already a violation of your nutrition habit, as it really doesn't grow sufficiently well for making wine out of it where you live? To be more in harmony with your latitude you should rather produce and consume beer. That drink has a strong alchemical relationship too (see for example the Triumphal Chariot by Basil Valentine and the brewer's star).

That's the beauty about wine. It preserves charge and can be obtained from anywhere (anywhere that makes good wine, I should hope).

It doesn't have to be local or in season, and it can be stored AND keep its value/charge for a quite a while...

And if the wine cellar (wish I had one) receives the natural currents arising from the Earth (especially at night), it "charges" even more.

Are you starting to connect the dots?

Ultimately we extract Life Force from the food we eat. You could call it Spiritus Mundi. First the body needs to replace broken and neutralized molecules to keep the electrons flowing charging tone into the body. The electrons give off light that is coherent in the CNS firing the Mind's Celestial Theater. Personally I take about two tablespoons a day of Canadian cold pressed hempseed oil.

Think so. May I try?

In a more "fixed" or scientific way of seeing it, grapes need/can stand a relatively high amount of energy from the sun. This energy is stored in carbohydrates (sugar). The grapes would rod in the winter unless they are preserved via fermentation. The more the necessity of sun energy, the more sugar, the stronger the wine.

There would be no big difference if you would do it with bananas, because for them count the same, or even more as for grapes.

Keeping it in the dark prevents the ingredients from untertaking chemical reactions that would diminish the quality of the wine and at the same time support reactions to increase the quality.

I guess not everything you have in mind can be described chemically. But those are some of the connecting dots I see.

Like (I think) I know you, similar things count for Lull's wine too. But here neither alcohol, nor sugar, nor grapes, nor the regular sun is necessary.

Have you ever considered how to use Alchemy to cook your food?

Well I have and this is what I've come to understand.

Humans need (or at least should have) a mix of both raw and cooked food to develop optimum health. The reason being is that, while raw foods contain the entire plant, there are many nutrients inside the cells that, if not chewed properly, or if the digestion is hindered in any way due to inflammatory disease, then we are missing a lot of the good minerals, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. One way to assist in the breakdown of plant cells and ensure that we get our fair share of minerals is to cook it!
Bon Appétit ;)

why not just eat 100% cook foods, and stick to a simple multi-vitamin if it were that simple?

I believe cooked foods, and raw foods trigger a type of epigenetics in our DNA that triggers certain things in different people. Animals in the wild eat 100% raw foods, but they're never going bald unless its with disease and aren't prone the cancer like we are, but here many humans are balding for some reason, many of us are getting cancer, and getting ill. If one stuck to a raw all-natural-paleo type life style, except, no cooking at all, I believe many people would see that their hair will start growing back, and less cancer. Why? Well because we'd be most congruent with the natural environment that made us.

If you put a playground from Washington D.C into the Sahara Desert, in 10 years, it's not gonna look the same as it did before. Its environment changed, it wasn't built for that type of environment.

If you put a Polar Bear in a Sahara Desert it's not gonna look the same as it did before it was put there. It wasn't built for that type of environment, and will have no choice but to ''change'' whether it wants to or not.... epigenetics?? .... well im just relating this to why we go bald.....

I had a tumor on my head that stuck out, and ever since I switched to low-carb diet, the tumor shrunk but didn't go away, when I started eating raw eggs in my diet (many raw eggs) the tumor vanished completely. No more tumor. Maybe it's the avidin, maybe it's the raw effect of foods, who knows, but I had this tumor for a couple of years, tried fasting, it would come back, change in my cooked food diet, it remained, switched to low-carb, it shrunk but was still there and it stayed, started eating lots and lots of raw eggs, it went away and stayed away. Fasting took away all of my eye floaters, all of them, made music sound better, food taste better, eyesight was clearer, brain fog left me, limbs felt rejuvenated, fasting and raw foods is all natural and is an ailment of its own, because it's simply most natural and congruent to our body type.

For a time, my diet was very strict as I was training my mind to let go, so that in case I ever die, I won't lose my mind with all my attachments here on the physical realm. Good food, is one of my weaknesses.

It consists of simply this; two whole raw onions, 12 raw eggs, 12 tbspn virgin coconut oil, zinc, vitamin d3, vitamin c, and iron. For snacks, at the grocery store I would buy bags of Pork Rinds chips with 0 Carbs, high in protein and fat, would keep my carb level low and it tastes good... I've used this as a small crutch to help me deal with my diet. I ate two daily.

Yep.
Except raw eggs, what other raw foods do you consume?

When I would fast, I'd never count the first day since in the body storage there is glucose and so it could take up to 24 hours until the detox begins, but If I were to count day 1, then my fasts would go no further than 4 Days. I felt most comfortable at 4 Days. My fasts were all ''Water Fasts''... tap water.

I intermittent fasted, but not intentionally, as I was just trying to let go of attachments and so I would have my vitamins and eggs and coconut oil (not my onions) in the morning, and after the work day is done (4pm or 5pm) I would eat again (with my onions). So, I would go without eating for about 8-9 hours. In case you ask, I avoid onions in the mornings because of onion breath, in case that girl down the aisle feels like chatting me up like usual :P

Thanks for the interesting Videos, Andro!
The second one is just the same speech like the first one, but from another location.

I know/knew some people who did not want to change their eating habit because of their cancer diagnosis, saying that's the only pleasure they have left, while being forced to give up many other things. Many doctors agree here because some see a positive psychological effect when people are happy about anything while in cancer therapy. Unfortunately many doctors seem they don't know about the importance of nutrition/diet when sick (and healthy).

Even when not having cancer it is like this. I know people who prefer to regularly swallow pills against chronical acid reflux, than to change eating and drinking habits. It's absurd.

But shouldn't that circadian habits be adjusted on the duration of day and nighttime that is depending on the seasons and latitude? On the other hand this would become more and more difficult, the nearer one lives to the poles.

What I am personally understanding and applying is that food is secondary to light and it's less about what we eat than it is about when we eat. I do my best not to eat anything after 4pm, regardless of season. When I have nice "generous" breakfast, relatively early in the morning, and a small-to-medium portioned lunch in the early afternoon (no snacks in between) I almost never feel hungry. Sometimes I also skip lunch, because I just don't feel the need. But it works best in a good UV light environment. Reducing food intake (no matter what one eats) also seems to be a determining factor, as it is to eat stuff that's local/in season - to the best of our ability. As I mentioned before, wines and fermented food-stuffs are the exception here. After (or during) fixing the WHEN, we can proceed to the WHAT. But focusing on the WHAT while entirely ignoring the WHEN is basically what's slowly killing us, IMO.

Yes, it appears to be more difficult to eat according to the circadian rhythms when at higher latitudes. Did I mention that I plan to relocate to a lower latitude? (at least below 30 degrees)

This being said, at higher latitudes we have the advantage (in summer) that we can "get away" with eating at later hours because we would still be eating during daylight hours.

For the more "polar" latitudes, we can look at the habits of the Inuit population before they were "westernized".

You can also manipulate the circadian rhythm with different frequencies of artificial light. Higher frequency light (white/blue) will tell your body that it is mid day. Lower frequency light (yellow/red) will tell your body that it is closer to dusk/dawn. High frequency optical light is also much harder on the eyes. So I run yellowish color lights in my house and have the "dark night mode" app installed on firefox. I'm an insomniac so circadian schedule is a big problem for me. Sometimes I go to sleep when the sun is coming up, then wake up late afternoon.

I'm getting off topic...but thought this was worth adding.

Not off topic AT ALL, mon cher :)

This stuff IS food!

Totally on spot with the comment of managing artificial indoor lights. Ideally we shoould use only candles after sunset :)

I bought myself a few pairs of Blue-Blocking glasses that I wear indoors (one pair for the computer, another for after sunset, etc).

About apps... I have used both f.lux and iristech for my computer screen, but they are not changing the fact the LEDs are peaking in the blue area and are missing all the longer wavelength reds, which are subtracted to "save energy" (same goes for indoor lighting LED lights, fluorescent, etc...)... and obviously there is no UV indoors, especially as UV doesn't penetrate through glass windows (unless they are either open or made of quartz).

There are ways to overcome insomnia. I may elaborate in further posts.

Yeah, the closer you get to infrared the more electricity you're using to produce heat instead of visual light. I have an interest in artificial lighting for growing indoor plants. I've tested metal halide, ceramic metal halide, high pressure sodium, fluorescent(standard, compact, and PL-L), single spectrum leds, and for the last couple of years have been playing with white COB leds (CXB3590 and Vero). The industry is getting better at adding red to get a more natural light. Still way less red/IR than an HPS or the Sun...but my plants have done better under 2700k cob leds than any other indoor lighting system. Check out the spectral difference between the different color temps of the same diode model, it doesn't include the 2700k I use (they are even better)...

I really want to try a huge indoor grow with a homemade xenon arc lamp. It's used for projectors in IMAX theaters. They apparently have the closest spectral output to the sun out of any artificial light source. But you have to run a huge light, like maybe 20kw, to get acceptable efficiency. This would be awesome as long as you have the ceiling height to create a large coverage area. Need to build that hydro-electric plant first.

Sounds good
