Translucence rising - Climate Science reflects modern science (videos)

There's been a frisson among climate scientists that give us a peek into science today. 
(interesting comments)
 
There has at last been a judgment against Mann - the scientist who, with his "hockey stick graph" that we saw so prominently in Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth"  - was annoyed because it was criticised as trash by another scientist called Steyn. So he sued him. The court proceedings have dragged on for years, during which time Mann refused to  share his data (surprise?). The Judge has just chucked his case out. And Steyn has put in a counter suit. Mann is bankrupt already and is probably due to get more bankrupt if that is possible. To read the claims see here.

It is totally possible and becoming even most probable that the whole Global Warming thing is a load of bollocks, imposed on us by a set of scientists spouting rubbish, experts, who, advise governments that have immediately seen the opportunity to make money out of a population converted by An Inconvenient Truth and a blind trust in Science and who can be made to feel guilty for their actions. The same social engineering using guilt as the prod is used against smokers.

We must NOT trust scientists. They are misusing science. Science is fantastic unless it is used to promote ideologies or industries. Industries carrying ideologies that have emerged in our modern world are the Global Warming Industry, The Charities Industries, The Tobacco Control Industries, The Education Industries, The Quango and Advisory Industries, The Politician Industry, The Health and Pharmaceutical Industries, The Psychiatric Industry, and many more. They all have self perpetuating motives and an internally self consensus bias that promotes their own self righteousness.

Those who break ranks are viciously punished, as the court case above shows. But a case like this does nothing to expose the error of the scientists, only their arrogance.

How do we ordinary people expose these errors of science?  Without scientific knowledge we cannot. But we can use our wits. If there is an "industry" dangling off a set of "facts" (like the facts of second hand smoke, or the perils of vaping) our personal experience should sharpen our perception that the "facts" are suspicious.

I think this is a mass hoax era. And the new industry scientists drive it with their "expertise".

Translucence rising - Placebo means Nocebo too.

 My wish for 2014 was that truth would rise up as the year progressed.

Last night in the UK, we were provided with a program - Horizon: The Power of Placebo (BBC Two). If I link it here, it will not be available after two weeks - so please Google it if you want to watch it. Sometimes these programs go up to YouTube after a while.

"The Power of Placebo" is the first time I have seen mainstream media offering anything intelligent on placebo. It is well worth watching. It gives us scientific reasons for effects us humans have known about since the first Shaman on earth. We are what we think.

We are what we think.

This is so utterly simple, yet encompasses and explains so much. Placebo could cloak Homeopathy, hypnotherapy, spiritual healing, faith healing, shamanism, and LOVE into mainstream. I talk about LOVE as caring/attention - not mindless copulation as is the trend.

So to see Placebo taken seriously for the first time, has been uplifting for me. The truth that it is a thing that is no longer questionable is a ray of light in our mainstream darkness.

Anyone who has lived in Africa knows that Placebo has its opposite. And it's the opposite that is the dangerous one. Believers that m'tagati has been cast on them in Africa, sicken and die. REALLY. In our enlightened times, spells are cast constantly. They percolate into every brain so none of us are free of them.

In the UK, there is a fixation on "health"or rather, the avoidance of ill health. This is not the same as celebrating the joy of being "well". Our TV/Media overflows with fear. Our Government legislates for it. The citizens are drip fed it. Our politicians are paralysed by it.

Soon, we will have legislation introducing plain packs with medical porn visuals and SMOKING KILLS, even larger than reality on them. When will anyone take seriously that such an action is a crime against those who smoke? Smokers, their families and all whose eyes fall on plain packaging are having a spell cast on them. Not only that, but "third hand smoke" has raised it's ugly head again. "Third hand smoke" will wreck trillions of lives/businesses if it is allowed loose and not challenged.

Trouble is, with nocebos, one tiny idea implanted, however briefly, can poison.

Electronic cigarettes are the target for fear induction now. Only vapers themselves actually know about vaping and what it has done to improve personal health. Only vapers know the miracle. We know that we do want regulation to keep us safe from dodgy e liquid or exploding batteries. But such regulation would be the same as we expect for exploding washing machines, or bottles of bleach. We need protection as consumers.

Nocebos and fear about vaping are being offered in the media, considered by legislators, and pushed by fear cursed politicians.

Smokers have been used for voodoo since the1980's. It is time it stopped. Vapers need to arm themselves with powerful positive thought. We ARE what we think.

In 2014 I hope to see that, if the idea of The Power of Placebo is now accepted as real and "scientific" someone somewhere, will study The Power of Nocebo.  If any scientist reads this blog, I suggest that smokers are a good subject. They are the only group that have been constantly cursed by anti smoking ideology. China, in particular NOW, has a SIGNIFICANTLY lower death rate from smoking than the west. They are "pures" in that they have been free of nocebo around smoking.

When we accept scientifically that we are what we think, our health will be transformed. Accepting that negative ideas we tell others to think, can be a dangerous, immoral action, and voodoo implanted via media and governance stopped, we might transform our world.

The Tyranny of "good"

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
CS Lewis

Now, in the UK, we have a tyranny of "good".  Our government is not a democracy, but a lobbyocracy. The reason why laws get passed in parliament, is not that the people want them, but because fronts/charities/entities/ lobby groups intent to change society "for its own good" make it happen. That is why, when you live in the UK, the laws seem so discordant with what most ordinary people think.

CS Lewis - those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. And may I add, convince us that we can feel righteous approval of OUR consciences, only if we and politicians also agree with them. It's a hopeless case really it is.

BRING ON THE ROBBER BARONS PLEASE!

Translucence rising - Promises, promises, promises

My wish or 2014 was to see wrongs exposed in our world. I wish for a year of translucence arising.

IF David Cameron gets in on the next election (which I think is highly unlikely), he PROMISES to have a referendum on EU membership for us here in the UK.

Promises, promises, promises! Promises are a kind of corruption. Especially when you use them as "bait" for votes. We should have had a referendum NOW if the man was really sincere.

Politicians are corrupt. Politics is corrupt. The political elite are corrupt. The EU is corrupt.

Corruption across EU 'breathtaking' - EU Commission

But 64% of British respondents said they believed corruption to be widespread in the UK, while the EU average was 74% on that question.

Originally, the report was also supposed to have included a chapter assessing corruption within EU institutions as well as within member states. But that idea was dropped.


The idea was dropped? I wonder why? I think the EU Institution is virtually totally corrupt. In fact, the shenanigans with electronic cigarettes has absolutely PROVED it to millions of us vapers. I will delight the day that is exposed too!

Until then, I don't think we believe promises any more.
