Tidbits and notes. Part 291

Twitter demands that I share my phone # in order to resume sharing my comments, and I refuse to abide by this constraint. I don’t know the dangerous consequences. Facebook is smarter and wiser: It also request my phone # but doesn’t exclude me from “sharing” and commenting.

The Modern States that learned to listen to the demands and request of its people and reacts promptly in reconsidering its laws are the most advanced, regardless of their size in land and population and are the most respectful of the UN resolutions regarding human rights. They have confidence that their educated and cultured citizens are more attuned to the world calamities than their functional institutions.

If Raping is not about power, then what is it? Shattering another person life for a stupid exercise in power exhibition. And Not even being endowed by gender to get the pleasure that women get.

Experiments on mice with cancers revealed that the mice that fasted two days before being injected with heavy dose of chemo lived and were found very active, while 40% of non-fasting mice died. Why?

The third day in the fast protocol is the toughest: The person feels joint aches, headache, nausea, feeling under the weather, and craving all kinds of food that he loves…

By the fifth fasting day, a state of euphoria and well-being submerges the fasting individual, and life is light and the tasks are very manageable…

My daydream project is opening a fasting clinic with the motto: “Fast your own protocol”. The client will check in the clinic and will submit to two days of learning everything on fasting, the research papers, the statistics, its consequences, the processes, the benefits, the side effects…and thorough physical tests.  The client will end up devising his own protocol for the staff in the clinic to supervise…

White, middle-class, heterosexual men, usually middle-aged or the “Default Man” dominate the upper echelons of our society, imposing, unconsciously or otherwise, their values and preferences on the rest of the population. They make up an overwhelming majority in government, in boardrooms and also in the media.

I can conjecture that the US in Tanaf military base (south-east Syria) are already sick and tired of remaining in this isolated desert hot location. Summer has Not even started and the sand storms will break any time soon. Even mercenaries are Not willing to go there. Get out quick: it is Not that strategic in the first place and Jordan and Iraq are sick a tired of USA antics.

I contend that the “Armenians” and the “Kurds” were initially of the same tribes, roaming the same Land: of all the Black Sea regions and all the mountain range from Turkey to Iran. They constituted powerful successive empires. As the Armenians and the Russians adopted the Orthodox Christian sect, the Armenians sided with Russia in all its incursions and expansion on the Ottoman Empire. The Kurds adopted Islam and sided with all the empires that ruled Turkey. Turkey vastly relied on the Kurds to prosecute its genocide plans on the Armenians. And some people claim that “monolithic” religions are benign forces.

I contend that it is inevitable that Iran and Turkey will strike a long-term deal, as they always did in the past. Iran and Turkey are the most advanced economically with stable political systems. Iran will effectively “administer” southern Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and the northern seashore provinces of current Saudi Kingdom. Turkey will administer all the remaining parts of so-called Greater Syria. That would be the consequences of the western colonial powers dividing the Near-Eastern and Middle-Easter people, even before they created their Zionist movement.

One version of the story goes like this: Daesh Abu Baker was a member of Saddam Hussein Republican guards and many of Al Nusra “leaders” were members of Jordan Royal guards. These “guards” were trained to behave as reckless assassins, modern razzia without any restrictions, when let loose by the Saddam or Jordan monarch. Syria had in its prisons most of the Muslim Brotherhood Al Nusra and Abu Baker also. As the uprising in Syria spread in most cities, Syria President liberated 1000 of Al Nusra and also Abu Baker to incite exaggerated killing and ransacking. The USA and colonial powers had all the intelligence pieces and capitalized on them to divide and “exhaust” the Syrian people.

Apparently, most of the powerful “Arab” tribes in Deir Zour and North-East Syria paid allegiance to Saddam Hussein during the Baath Party feud between Saddam and Hafez Assad. The houses posted the pictures of Saddam and were well armed. No wonder then how Daesh (ISIS) quickly entered Al Raqqa and swiftly advanced to Mosul.

Is fasting hard? (September 12, 2009)

Fasting from drinking (even water) or eating for 14 hours, from let say 4:30 am to 6:30 pm, should not be hard if you don’t cheat drinking a little in the morning.  If you refrain from over-indulging when you break the fast , you will feel very fine physically and mentally.

You may get all the nutrition you need by not being very selective in your diet and cutting down on man-made sugary stuff  deserts.  The body does not need to drink and eat more than once to sustain its energy.  The hardest to contain are the excitation of the senses: It seems that the taste buds and smell molecules revolt at this change in habit and need their daily intakes and thus, senses harass the fasting individual continuously all day long.

The eyes and touch exacerbate the fasting condition because they send intelligence messages to the smell and taste buds that potential resources are within grasping distances for their satisfaction.  Taste buds and smell are the addictive senses that require their daily dozes at specific periods because they were trained to wait for them and be calmed.

Fasting people prefer to sleep. Not because they have no energy to function, but in order to relax those demanding senses that are driving them crazy with anticipation.  I once fasted for 30 days to share this harsh period with a Moslem friend of mine.

The few first days are the hardest and then it becomes an acceptable routine.  Actually, if you fast breakfast you will not feel that hungry at lunch; this is contrary to how hungry you feel at lunch if you had something in your stomach in the morning which stimulate eating.

Many people prefer to have supper (or dinner) and skip breakfast and lunch; they feel very much active and energetic for the entire day.

The trick is that I refused to quit smoking; I needed this addiction to squelch my taste buds and smell that instill total boredom on the constitution once they are refused excitation.  Smoking should not be prohibited during fasting, since it is not food or drink. If you are a smoker, it is an opportunity to try to cut down on smoking. A few cigarettes aid greatly in overcoming boredom of the mind and body and enhance imagination outside the real of drinking and food.

The worst part of fasting is that you gain weight by the end of the fasting period.

People take their revenge on eating too much sweet, ice cream, and sugary condiments most of the night. They also eat too much at one setting and get pretty sick.  Fasting is primarily overcoming the addictive requirements of the taste buds and smell; they are the culprit for hardship in fasting.

Fasting is fighting against all addictive behaviors that are generally and explicitly linked to stomach habits and requirements.

As for sex addiction, I leave this topic for another post. Keep doing sex in moderation to please your partner and relieve your anxieties.
