‘A school in London has come under fire after telling 60 teenage pupils to write their own suicide notes during an English class assignment.
The task was given as part of the year group’s studies on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, in which Lady Macbeth dies “by self and violent hands”.
Senior staff at Thomas Tallis School in Kidbrooke apologised for upsetting students, some of whom are said to have friends who have taken their own lives.
One mother said three of her daughter’s friends had killed themselves, and that her daughter was “very distressed” after being asked to write the note.
She said she complained to the school as soon as her daughter told her about the task.’
‘Are iPads, smartphones and Xboxes a form of digital drug? Recent brain imaging research is showing that they affect the brain’s frontal cortex exactly like cocaine.
The frontal cortex controls executive functioning, including impulse control. Technology is so hyper-arousing that it raises dopamine levels — the feel-good neurotransmitter most involved in the addiction dynamic — as much as sex.
Dr. Peter Whybrow, director of neuroscience at UCLA calls screens “electronic cocaine” and Chinese researchers call them “digital heroin”. Even Dr. Andrew Doan, head of addiction research for the Pentagon and the U.S. Navy calls video games and screen technologies “digital pharmakeia” (Greek for drug).
No wonder parents have a hard time peeling kids away from their screens. Hundreds of clinical studies show that screens increase depression, anxiety and aggression and can even lead to psychotic-like features where the video gamer loses touch with reality.’
‘First, here are a few facts that should give you pause:
According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), “More than 25 percent of college students have been diagnosed or treated by a professional for a mental health condition within the past year.”
NAMI: “One in four young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 have [we claim] a diagnosable mental illness.”
According to healthline.com, 6.4 million American children between the ages of 4 and 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD. The average age for the child’s diagnosis is 7.
BMJ 2016;352:i1457: “The number of UK children and adolescents treated with antidepressants rose by over 50% from 2005 to 2012, a study of five Western countries published in European Neuropsychopharmacology has found.”
Getting the picture?
Children are being diagnosed and dosed with toxic drugs at a staggering rate.’
‘The saying goes that ‘power corrupts’, and a new study suggests there may be some truth behind this – especially when it comes to brain function.
Researchers have found that CEOs and other leaders may suffer damage to their brain as a result of their rise to power.
The damage results in the loss of the ability to read other people’s emotions, which could explain why people who achieve great power lose their ability to feel empathy for the less powerful.
Researchers at McMaster University in Ontario made the finding using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) – a technique that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in specific regions of the brain.
This showed that the areas of the brain that deal with empathy were significantly less responsive in people in power.’
‘Let’s make something clear, here at the outset. Concepts like perfection, enlightenment, and utopia are unattainable. But, and here’s the rub, that fact is irrelevant regarding the human pursuit of progressive evolution. Sure, we may not ever be perfect, but we should always strive to do the best we can at any given task. We may not become a perfect chess player, but we can try to become a great chess player, or even the best. Similarly, we may not ever become enlightened but we can become the most enlightened version of ourselves.
It’s the old, wise cliché: the journey is the thing. Even if we fall short, the fact that we tried our best is what matters. This applies even to the pursuit of utopia. We may never attain a perfect utopia, but the pursuit of healthier more improved forms of human governance is the thing. Better to move forward, progressively adapting to and overcoming the vicissitudes of human life, than to stagnantly become fixed and entrenched in a particular way of living. As Robert Louis Stevenson put it, “It’s better to travel hopefully than to arrive.”’
‘Yoga teachers love to remind their students that yoga isn’t just a physical practice; it’s a deep mind-body experience that follows you off of the mat into the rest of your life. That might seem like an out-there concept, but new research is proving it a scientific fact. The latest is a study published June 16 in the scientific journal Frontiers, showing that mind-body practices like yoga, tai chi and meditation don’t just relax their practitioners in the moment, but have the potential to reverse stress reactions at the molecular level.
In other words, these practices can physically alter the way our DNA interacts with stress.
The study analyzed 18 prior studies that used gene expression analysis in their research. These were studies looking at various mind-body interventions (MBIs), including yoga, tai chi, qigong, mindfulness, relaxation response, and breath regulation. The analysis concludes that the stress reaction appears to reverse at the molecular level due to mind-body practices, though much more research is needed to better quantify this trend.’
‘Oh, how the times they are a changin’. Twenty years ago, traveling from the U.S. to the jungle to take ayahuasca was mostly reserved for the wildly adventurous, the earthy hippie, or those on a quest with a purpose.
Today, going to the jungle to take the “medicine” is a featured “dream trip” in luxury travel magazines like Afar.
Which means, of course, there is work being done in the U.S. to take the jungle and the travel out of the equation (as a sign of the times, not by causation).’
‘Everyone probably is familiar with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda, the oldest form of ‘organized’ medicine on the planet—close to five thousand years before the American Medical Association and Big PHARMA.
Both those ancient healing approaches dealt with the various aspects of life and living in the third dimension such as body, mind, spirit, the ethereal body or what some call the astral body. There’s another form of healing called shamanism—an original treatment conceived by humans, which deals with similar concepts plus the concept of benevolent and malevolent spirits that apparently can impact a person’s psyche and health.
Such healthcare concepts are foreign to modern medicine, which is steeped in man-made, patented chemicals, i.e., pharmacology and toxins—something the human body did not evolve with over the course of evolutionary time and, therefore, often do more harm than good, as attested to by various class action lawsuits and the fact that 128,000 people die from prescription drugs  in the USA and Europe a year! Therefore, humans are at an all-time high for falling between the cracks in finding effective healthcare and practitioners, especially if one is dependent upon insurance reimbursement for medical services.’
‘With Amazon.com now purchasing Whole Foods, giving it a near-monopoly over multiple sectors of the U.S. economy, we are entering the age of corporate giants dominating and enslaving humankind. Apple has more debt-free cash than nearly all world governments, including the United States of America (which is drowning in debt). Google has a near-monopoly over all search results, a position of power it exploits to silence dissenting views and disconnect humanity from important knowledge. And Facebook suppresses all truthful information that challenges the false narratives of the globalists. Corporations like these abuse their power to enslave humanity rather than setting us free.’
