The Gods Must Be Crazy (introduction)

I would like to apologise to anyone who is offended by this title. I acquired it from the movie called The Gods Must Be Crazy.

The short story of the movie: a Bushman of the Kalahari Desert, N!xau (played by Xi), found a coke bottle as he was having a walkabout in the dessert of the Kalahari. If you did not see the film, please use the YouTube link above to acquire an inkling of what the movie (part one) is about. A Coke bottle was chucked out the window of an aeroplane. N!xau thought, the Gods have sent it and therefore it must have some use. During the journey of the bottle, it becomes at first the centre of curiosity and interest in his community. Later it graduates to be the centre of evil and creator of conflicts.

I have chosen this title as a result of the world economic turmoil, the turmoil which is the social-tsunami we “had to have”. This monolithic wave was in the making since the late fifties. Most of my friends muttered under their breath decades ago: “this can’t go on without a disaster”.

When someone is in a railway tunnel, the light at the end of that tunnel is not always the light-of-day.

These are times when our human nature learns again, that young nations with young minds are really suckling babes in terms of culture. They are unable to say no to those things which a wise consideration will not touch. Having a national leader with a juvenile mind is augmenting insanity. He attained respect not because he is a competent leader of that nation but because the office he is holding makes him a pygmy with a machine gun. Such leaders are not the light-of-day at the end of the tunnel but the train hurdling toward the people who huddle together in the tunnel. They are praying for a miracle to take them out of their entrapment, so they can stop sacrificing their children on the altar of disinformation. The beast in the tunnel is squashing everything in front of it to run people over so it can get too the light of day at the other end of the tunnel, so it can bathe in it under false pretences.

I suspect we are still in front of a train which is unable to stop. Why? Because we are still using the money, milked from the people, to prop up industries which, under the rules of the free market, should die. The world acquired nationalised banking just like the Comunist World did.

This is the wages for the modern man for the ill considered mistakes of their leaders who view the world from a limited prospective of acquisition at all cost. The wages people pay for insanity are the blood and substance of the nation. Some people turned homeless and have abandoned their children. This is the beginning of abandoning to be a human and the beginning of turning into an animal. The only catch-cry is survival, where morality is thrown out the window; like a Coke bottle. The abandonment of human qualities are the next steps toward total meltdown of a previously great society, unless that society divests itself from attitudes promoting nothing but business and stop being politically correct.

I developed a connection with the bushman of the Kalahari Desert, and the connection grew in me after meditation when I realised I have a kindred spirit with the character in the movie. I remembered the story, searching for solutions like he did, about what is happening to the world, and what were the achievements man has made thus far and how those achievements will save us? Technology will not save, we already know that some technology progress only manages to increase the flow of money. What we need to create is a bridled control of our excesses, because that is what got us into the mess in the first place. China for many years undermined the world by artificially withholding the rise of their currency while working itself into a manufacturing giant.

I was ready to consider, where is our next stop. Where is that place where we re-assess our steps for the future? To use the aid of a simple man, to make sense of the turmoil, which is overshadowing our world? I thought this return to old fashioned wisdom would be the best process in order to escape disaster, because our normal life is so severely contrived that nothing is simple. Humans on this globe have been blended for some time now into a homogenous smoothie, where nothing stands out and all is blended into one. Our world best practice has killed all our honourable heros.

The speed, with which the down-turn progressed, seems instant just like the Coke bottle which was chucked out through the window of the aeroplane in the movie. The speed of the two events is identical. The bushman struggled to make sense of his encounter which had its origins outside his everyday life. He had to use all his skills and cunning, his senses, which served him in the past, to reconcile the new unknown object in his life, with the understanding he had built up about it. I am also struggling to understand the new world into which we changed.

I began to feel the mind of the man from the Kalahari growing in my own mind because the environment around me suddenly and intimately became interconnected with George W. Bush, who was the bottle out of the sky, thrown down by gods who must be crazy. I also discovered the proverbial Coke Bottle when I heard that President George W. Bush is going to chair the G20 economic summit and make further contributions to the already devastated economy of the world and the American Economy by promoting the same practice over and over again.

Sorry… Take two….

The world’s most hated President at the end of his destructive life-span as a president is given another bite at the cherry by heading the worlds economic summit where he is again promoting the free market which has nearly destroyed his country and placed the world at the brink of an economic and unrecoverable disaster.

How dumb is that?

It is not that George Bush is hated; it is that a calamity was unleashed on the rest of the world because the world is inevitably interconnected with the American dollar, which should be renamed from the green-back to the red-back. It is dangerous to be around, like a red-back spider. It is deadly if it bites you. George Bush was the driver, holding onto the steering wheel of the bus, which had its destination into the hell-hole of Afghanistan and Baghdad, pre-booked by Osama bin Ladin who knew the Bushmentality of personal revenge, and he made certain that Bush would drive the bus off the road in Asia. Israel cannot understand that the greatest nation ever can be reduced to a knee crawling magul by ants. In the H. G. Wells’s story “War of the Worlds” The Martians were destroyed by bacteria.

Australia has become famous again because our Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, supposedly was asked by President Bush, “what is the G20?” Consider, that for a long time I have reminded people that President Bush was born in a fire year and that Bush has no concern about what his torch is scorching because it is his nature to burn through obstacles. He must be a student of Tacitus, who believed, there is no glory in a peaceful empire. The Roman Empire has collapsed some four hundred years after Tacitus, so Bush has improved on Tacitus. It took him only eight years to destroy the American empire. He is also unaware of economics as I am unaware about the life of an otter in the wild countryside of America.

Is it good for the world that the most powerful man in the world lacks economic understanding, while the rest are desperate to find answers for the ills of the world’s economy, which was hastened by an incompetent president? Obviously it must be good because all great corporation and their CEOs want to carry on the same way as they have in the past, by demanding millions of dollars for their. All these bright people forget the proverb: “If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got.”

Simple.

In my desert world of compassionless society, the “world leaders” are the crazy gods: powerful, protected and unelected. They run their “tyre tracts” across people’s lives, disregarding all who they roll under their tyres as if it is their “right-to-behave-as-they-will.” They have no policy to resolve the problem so long as there is indiscriminate growth. They act contrary to all the laws of God known to mankind.

Now we, the twenty-first century inhabitants of western culture are the recipients of a gift. This gift is our alarm clock, ready to awaken us from a long and deep ’sleep-in.’ This wakening is in the beginning of the greatest upheaval the world economy. It has yet not fully developed or unveiled before us.

What are the laws known to mankind which God provided for us?

1. There is only sufficient life-support on the planet to sustain life and not to be abused for indefinite growth.

2. Ignoring the above rule creates extinction. Just look at the disappearing animal and plant species.

3. Having a dollar, you only can buy a dollar’s worth. No more.

In the movie “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” N!xau is a simple, down to earth native of the land, who observes how the world works. He watches the seasons and the signs which disclose danger. He is very closely attuned to his environment. His survival depends on his awareness. He is the barometer of his world. He looks for all the little signs which will enhance his survival. His mind bends with the agility of a high-wire performer, who secures his work place. He is able to take his steps to cross the abyss with the confidence of a brave who has considered all dangers and took care not to have disasters.

When the Coke bottle falls out of the sky, N!xau tries to find ways to fit the object into the workings of his world. He fails each time because the bottle is not suitable for any purpose which ensures a good outcome in his world. The object found does not help him in any of his activities in the long run, because the object does not belong in his world. It is an outside influence, destroying the fabric of his society. When it does not work, he has to abandon a useless endeavour and has to discard the magic object despite its being useful in some parts, because it creates mischief at the same time.

Am I unfair to wonder about the sanity of the gods which rule the modern world, or is it the free will given by the gods that created a crazy American President? Or was it the people who voted him into office from the beginning, because they followed some crazy law of a God, destined to ruin the world?

Mercilessly, I would like to judge the thinking of modern advisers. The speeches I hear say: the stock-market will pick up eventually and we only see a glitch right now so talk up the positive side of the disaster. They say the past proved that this cycle changes over the years and the good time will come back again. I am sorry to inform these thinkers that they are as crazy as the gods who throw bottles out the window because good times do come back, but those who lost their money in the financial tsunami are unable to appreciate those recoveries. They are ultimately left behind. I would like to see the statistics of loses and not the climbs in the corridors of the stock market.

The very power of recovery which is needed for growth is not an option, because we have no oil to transform into work energy as we had in the past. The energy required to make the old economy fly like a bird is no longer available. Most energy and creativity is restricted to create other power sources and that is not production. That is working for survival. We have, on the other hand, intense growth in weather calamities. That means in economic terms, we are having an inflation of weather deformation which cannot be controlled with cutting interest rates. There will be no growth because the plants of the future providing food are already the legal property of large companies. Our health can not cope with the kind of life we live, or the toxic foods we develop. We are having extreme increase of ill health, be that physical or mental.

Growth is not available in the same way as when all the Indians were killed and the slaves have collected the cotton. The land acquired was and is abused without impunity. The canaries in the mines are no longer having difficulty breathing. They have already fallen off the perch. It is time for the miners to leave, abandon work and go to safety. Canaries are not the cause of the bad news; they are the messengers of it. They are the evidence of bad news which is undeniable. The world has endeared itself this far with crap-items. We purchased out ourselves for the next half a century. The morality of toxic food production and work ethics is not sustainable or desirable in the future world.

The next stage of development for the world is on the edge of the abyss. The “growth” we fail to notice is backwards (down the hill which we have just climbed) because we can not create with the same speed as we did before. President Bush’s unrestricted trade-practices are the same folly as the other great disasters men have created for themselves; Napoleon and Hitler just to name a few. Both of these crazy gods have engaged in wars (or encounters if you please) outside their safety limits. The supply line to achieve world domination has extended beyond safe return. Besides the war on terror there is nothing more than the Third Reich’s army, struggling against the partisans of the day. America has suffered a moral devastation like all other war-makers. America at the moment is morally and financially bankrupt.

In the last decade, the proud nation which had the distinction that everybody liked it, recently has sunk below respectable levels. In fact the people of nations are despising the American model. The modern business must travel far from home to count itself viable. When we speak about making inroads into virgin market territories may sound good but it is a fallacy because this migration speaks not of development but the postponement of economic downturn in the ultimate. What this means is that the local destruction went so far and so deep that we need new territory to sell wares; like China. This removal of work-power form home is no different to when one takes their armies far away and have supply problems as the two crazy gods mentioned before. The Romas exported their practices and failed. The British have done the same and failed, so did Germany and Spain. They too failed!

The mechanical world is in its last struggle. To be precise it is in a death struggle. If the reader has followed my elemental-astrology and understands the interaction of elements, would understand that the two Earth years of 2008 and 2009 are followed by two Metal Years of 2010 and 2011. The real collapse resulting from the slashing of the sword (representing metal years) will then be realised. The petrol shortage and credit crisis from 1972 followed by each decade after metal years (198219922002) where financial destabilisation times. The warnings were and are ignored because “no same business tycoon would listen to these kinds of astrological analyses.” These earth years were the introductory trembling of financial collapse to follow and we are witnessing the preparations for it now. The inflation of acquire now pay-later, so long as you buy-now, is not just taking hold but taking shape fast and it is an aggressive way to create a credit crisis. The companies like Harvey Norman in Australia advertising 20 months credit are unable to understand that we do not know what happens in a day never mind what may happen in a dream-time 20 months hence!!!!

Alvin Toffler’s: “Future Shock” is here. Buy the book!!!!

Learn to survive. Don’t buy a bookmark. Make one. Don’t buy a shirt, make one. Be proud about what you can do and not what you can buy. Small business is the only sustainable feature for the future. Those big business gods who (as I see it … are crazy) desire to return to the way it was are the grave diggers of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The barons, lords and prices in the past had to go because of their gathering of money and power. The barons of modern board-rooms also must go. The sickness of high wages unreasonably earned, must go or we are justifying our future-downfalls by ignorance. The only safe way is to have an equitable society where the level of well being is near equal to all. That way there is no envy.

Our decisions in the future will be like the industrial revolution, but in reverse and my contribution is to offer a way proven through observation of past history. We never had democracy and maybe the Greeks didn’t either if you look back deep enough. Democracy is not based on: “I do what I like, because I can.” That is open ended market, that is a poker game. Democracy is based on empathy, self restrictions and the predominance of the community of carers. That is also a thing we lost long time ago when we sold our assets like power, telecommunication and heath, because the unrestricted crazy gods demanded free range on their playground. I am sorry but in times like this we discover that the gods are crazy. The man in the Kalahari Dessert found out when he couldn’t make head or tail of events in his life.

These “articles of meditation,” are free of charge. They are testimonies about the accuracy of ancient wisdom as interpreted with present day wisdom. At this stage, the theme of: “The Gods Must Be Crazy” is the first in a line of articles dwelling into the future.

In closing, I asked a friend for his thoughts on the solution to this present economic turmoil. His replied came without hesitation. He said: “We need a messiah.”

Maybe “Dada” Barack will fit the bill to save the world of economic indulgence. He soared into office by the people of the world, holding hope for his election, but then, so was Bush growing out of the same people. He did not have the world behind him. We all understand Bush is a different timber (with all the pun intended) because only the Americans voted for him while the world refused to consider him eligible. I have the feeling Obama may just do for a messiah. I have no other choice at the moment and he emerges like a thief in the night. I look at him through the lenses of my skill, astrology.

Oh by the way, don’t forget, I called him “Dada” first. It is not a perfect name before we learn to know him, but will do as a credit-note for the time being.

Acquiring Asthma through Bad Medication.

Empiric Medicine No Comments »

Medical researchers discovered that young children, if administered Paracetamol, acquire asthma in later life. I suspect the medical profession is shocked by the discovery. The most frightening part is (if I understand correctly), the intensity of the symptoms is related to the quantity of Paracetamol ingested.

The medical profession – for some time – has made people ill because doctors failed to pay attention to what they are doing and what effect their remedies create. I often hear that medication repeated without paying attention to details causes patients intoxication through the inappropriate and imposed medication. Imposed it is because the doctors tell the patient to take the medication and say: “Why do you think I have prescribe it ? For you to take it!” A doctor, distant from the patient and keeping them at arms length is a good practice to pass the buck of responsibility and to avoid lawsuits. It is so easy to say, “This is what is recommended by the pharmaceutical companies and therefore we administer it.” We know however that at the end this kind of thinking is just negligence.

The careful eye of your local family doctor, after prescribing the dose of Paracetamol, is no longer kept on the patient because there is no time for that. Not only that but the delay of the symptoms is a good excuse to shove the issue under the table because one can not use a crystal ball to see the future.

The next patient pays for the office, electricity and the Volvo. So the observation falls on empiric observers, the parents, the para medics, and shamans, who closely observing: what medication administered and what is the reaction to them. This alertness then is transmitted to the researchers and this is how people discover damaging ignorance. By all rights, the doctors should be responsible for misdiagnosis and damage as a result of attention-omission to details.

Let me then preview of what takes place in a family and how we can avoid the damage to our children who are presenting an acute temperature and for all intents and purposes, have the clear set of symptoms we would describe as: having a cold. The symptoms are very acute, the child has a headache and sweats a lot and he/she is unable to go to sleep because of discomfort.

Please take Note: There could be other reasons for the reaction in a child and so one should be alert if other symptoms will persist after the recommended treatment below in this article persists. If the symptoms are not reduced within hours from being administered, it is strongly recommended a visit to the doctor. No parent should assume that what appears in these pages is the only possible illness or possible solution for what they may observe in their children while in the grip of temperature, sweating and irritability associated with head ache; a possible cold (flu like) attack on the child.

In the next few lines I will describe what can appear as a cold/flu and also a toxemia.

If the child had a few days earlier food which was not suitable or the child was run down and complex food was used to feed the child such as pizza. The body, as a result of the inappropriate food-kind is unable to process the food properly or fast enough. This causes extreme increase in the toxic material in the body, which creates the classic flu like symptoms.  A general body lethargy seems not to want to disappear . The stomach feels unhappy and the patient has no desire to eat or feels uncomfortable but decides not to stop eating.

At this stage the parents suddenly feel fearful and dash to the hospital or to the family doctor who decides that having a cold is virus based no use to give antibiotic, so they decide to help parents with reducing the suffering of the child and prescribe Paracetamol (Panadol). Please check for trade name changes in your country. More often if the symptom appear after hours the parents wait till the morning to take the child to a physician, so if by the morning the symptoms have not subsided, the doctor must be visited.

The empiric observers realise that the symptoms presented is an intoxication because the kidneys are not efficient enough. In fact this solution also working for adults as well as it works for children. I am not certain how it would affect people who have reduced kidney functions, but it would be a good thing to try. I would be very appreciative any comment emailed (if someone decides to use it as a assistance to reduced kidney functions) so we may update the information.

The remedy consists of: using potatoes and vinegar. A bowl to fit both feet and a grater, plus vinegar and warm water needs to be prepared.

The procedure is this: first grate two or three largish potatoes (sufficient quantity to cover both feet of the patient). Place the bare feet of the patient in the bowl in which the potatoes were grated and cover the naked feet with the potato gratings. Leave the feet covered for at least half an hour and will be noticed that the potato turns pinkish because of the urea the potato drew through the skin and thereby acting like a second set of kidneys. After the recommended time, wash the child’s feet and mix separately warm water and vinegar: say one litre water and two or three spoonfuls of vinegar. Wash down the body of the child with this warm mild white vinegar mix. DO NOT dry the skin of the child, but put the pyjamas on and put them to bed. They will be in deep sleep in a short time.

In the morning the child will be active and hardly any symptoms of ‘cold/flu.’ If this does not occur, the child must visit a physician ASAP.

In cases without complication, the potato removes the toxic materials. The blood which has turned alkaline, with the mild vinegar changes the blood picture toward neutral. I think this very old remedy may reduce the toxification and reduces the cases of asthma in children in the future. Simple but effective.
