Cancer is a brain disease

How can I possibly come to this conclusion? It’s pretty straightforward if you’ve read my other stuff. [I’ll link some important source articles below]

Entropy increases in the brain as we age.

Entropy causes aging.

Cancer is the last stage of cellular life. Therefore aging causes cancer.

Aging starts in the brain.

Thus, cancer starts in the brain.

Before you call bullshit, think about the entire field of epigenetics, the study of how your genetic code mutates over time. We know that you weren’t born with cancer. We know that your genetic code changes over time. And we also know that the chances of getting cancer greatly increases as you age.

So, in my opinion, there’s never going to be a magic pill or vaccination to cure cancer. We have to fight the disease at it’s source: the brain. How do we do that? We combat the aging process best we can: Sleep better, see better, and get in that cardio. We measure our personal time dilation, and think critically about the medicines we’re taking, because side effects matter. Take matters into your own hands, because you’ve been controlling things all along anyways, without even knowing it. 

 

 

Entropy and the Brain

So here’s an article about the entropy in the brain and how it increases with age. This fits my model of aging, “brainbeats”, and personal time perception. There are mixed studies on whether more or less entropy in the brain is better. But we already know the answer to that.

  • Less entropy the better.
  • Caffeine creates brain entropy. And so do a bunch of other things
  • Stress is entropy.
  • Entropy alters personal relativity. May want to check out this article on that. 

Entropy always increases in a closed system, but we are not closed systems. It’s the second law of thermodynamics.

So, let’s assume the brain is a cylinder filled with gas. It should adhere to the following equation: PV=nRT, where P is pressure, V is volume, and T is temperature. n and R are constants the won’t apply since this calculation is more a correlation. We haven’t figured out those constants for the brain yet. 

As the temperature rises, the entropy rises. And either pressure or volume rises. So, in the closed system of your body, entropy always increases. But, if we allow your brain to expand, we can decrease the pressure and temperature.

So our brains shrink over time. And if they shrink, the pressure of our ideal gas, and temperature will rise accordingly. Entropy rises. But we know that all of this is just further from our ground state, where we sleep, recover, and learn best. Our perceptions of time will shorten, and hasten our aging process.

What is associated with elevated brain pressure?

One of the most damaging aspects of brain trauma and other conditions, directly correlated with poor outcome, is an elevated intracranial pressure. ICP is very likely to cause severe harm if it rises too high. Very high intracranial pressures are usually fatal if prolonged, but children can tolerate higher pressures for longer periods. An increase in pressure, most commonly due to head injury leading to intracranial hematoma or cerebral edema, can crush brain tissue, shift brain structures, contribute to hydrocephalus, cause brain herniation, and restrict blood supply to the brain. It is a cause of reflex bradycardia.

Can our brains grow? Yes. That should not surprise you. As the volume increases, brain pressure in the model would go down. But later in life, they start shrinking, and so do we. They grow until you start trying to lose weight. They go until you start aging. They grow until you throw in the towel. Here’s a chart of brain weight over time. See for yourself. The decrease in brain weight corresponds with aging.

What, if anything are the takeaways here? The brain follows the second law of thermodynamics. Entropy causes aging. I’m adding this to my brain model. What’s next? Apply this model to the Bends and altitude sickness.

Dads cause Dwarfism

OK. So a couple days ago we went through Down Syndrome, and how it is closely tied with the age of mothers, and how that means that we play a large role in causing or preventing it.

Today, I want to talk about the dads. We know that there are some strong correlations between the age of dads and a list of birth defects. We need to know a couple things: are they genetic disorders? Is it the lifestyle of the dads that determines these outcomes? Is it predetermined at conception? Or is it something that can be corrected?

What birth defects are closely correlated to the age of their fathers:

  • autism
  • schizophrenia
  • dwarfism/Achondroplasia
  • Apert’s Syndrome

We’ve already talked about autism and schizophrenia, and how I think they are both curable and why. So while they are equally important, we’re going to focus on dwarfism today.

It’s a random gene mutation. But it’s random and we don’t even really know why it mutates. Apparently it’s called epigenetics, which essentially undermines genetics, in my opinion. Think about it for a second, the entire field of genetics is about mapping a stationary code of a human being and predicting his offspring. If that code is not stationary, how can we predict changes in the person or his offspring?

Sometimes we can identify dwarfism during pregnancy. In many cases it can be identified at birth. Because of these two observations, I think it’s safe to say that dwarfism is not reversible. I’m sure you’re thinking that’s obvious, but this is coming from the guy who thinks Alzheimer’s is curable, so I need to be sure.

It’s really pretty simple [if you read my proof on Down Syndrome]: we know the age of the father is closely tied with an increased risk for dwarfism. We know that age is literally just a number, and really begins in the brain. We’ve even shown why and how this happens. And the best part: it’s reversible.

So I get it. You’re not looking to do any more research. You just want answers. You control more about the health of your baby than you know. Get healthy before you get anybody pregnant.

You control your sunburn

Well, to some extent. 

Think about the last time you went to the beach. You now the drill. Some people will burn in fifteen minutes and others won’t burn for hours, even if they are the same skin tone. How can this be the case?

It’s because of the medication they’re taking. Yes, maybe. But why?

Each person perceives time differently. Remember, time does not exist. So it’s your perception of time that actually either speeds up or slows down your actual sun exposure. The greater amount of strain you have in your life [there are all kinds of sources], the less time you can stay in the sun without burning.

It sounds ridiculous even writing it, but just think about it. We have proven that our perceptions of time effect aging, menstrual cramps, puberty, and blinking. Your perception of time controls how much damage the sun can do to you in the same amount of time as someone else.

What about skin cancer? It’s a real thing. Sunscreen helps prevent it, but what sunscreen does is shield you from the suns rays. And your body benefits from the sun. Oh, and there are types of skin cancer that people get in places the sun doesn’t touch.

Skin cancer is essentially the latter stage of skin aging. The risk factors for skin cancer are age, fair skin, radiation, smoking, and being a guy. If you’ve read any of my other posts, these shouldn’t surprise you.

Why do men get skin cancer so much more often than women? It’s the same reason that women live longer. Generally speaking, they perceive time slightly better than men. Meaning that your average woman will be more patient than your average man, but just not for reasons your thinking. One hour for a man will just seem much longer than it will for a woman. This obviously varies from person to person, and from day to day. 

Old people get skin cancer more often. The average age of melanoma is 63. And we’ve proven that aging starts in the brain.

Your skin can still recover and adapt. So wear sunscreen, or don’t. But sunscreen or not, when you get burnt it’s time to cover up.  So here’s a crazy idea, your skin is a living thing, just like your muscles. We stress our muscles to get stronger. Allow them time to recover, and repeat. That’s how we should view sun exposure.

Ok. So what do I do now? Just continue living your life. Start thinking about what you’re doing every day that makes you burn faster than all of your friends. Because that’s what’ll kill you. Not the sun.

We cause Down Syndrome

I wish we didn’t, but we do. It’s important to know that to properly prevent it. 

Down Syndrome occurs way more often in older mothers. Look at the chart below. Why is that? I have no idea. What I do know, is what causes aging.

AAFP-DS-prevalence

  • A 20-year-old woman has a 1 in 1,500 chance of having a baby with Down’s syndrome.
  • A 30-year-old woman has a 1 in 800 chance.
  • A 35-year-old woman has a 1 in 270 chance.
  • A 40-year-old woman has a 1 in 100 chance.
  • A 45-year-old woman has a 1 in 50 chance or greater.

The only thing that’s different in a woman that’s 20 and a woman that’s 40 is her mind. Maybe not all, but that’s where it all started. That’s the source of the aging.

Mental strain equals aging. Aging equals a better chance of having a kid with down syndrome. But if aging starts in the brain, and we know the cause, can we reduce the chances of these kids being born with these defects. Yes. You can take these precautions at any age.

Here’s the formula: learn to see without glasses. Stop drinking. Stop smoking. Stop drinking caffeine. Wean off your antidepressants. You may be taking some other meds for something else that will play a role in this. If you’re taking anything that causes dizziness, anxiety, depression, blurred vision, messes with your sleep cycle, I would think twice about taking it.

The Global Down Syndrome foundation has this on it’s website: “Down syndrome has nothing to do with race, nationality, socioeconomic status, religion, or anything the mother or father did during pregnancy. [Source]” You just don’t have enough information to prove that. You’re also closing the door on other research or correlation that may help prevent this in the future.

Let’s just call it genetic. It’s easier. No one will feel guilty. It’s just simply not true. If it was genetic, why would older women have kids with it so much more often than younger women? They’re genes do not change as they get older. 

Down syndrome is not genetic. Sorry. I wish it was. It has a positive correlation to the age of the mother. And we’ve already figured out what the difference is between old people and young people: the only difference. Their minds. We’ve traced the roots of the aging process to the brain, and have discovered the cycles that accelerate it.

We cause Down syndrome. And it’s preventable. So if you’re trying to get pregnant at any point, but especially late in life, question your mental health first, and make sure you’re in the right place before taking the plunge. Your baby’s health depends on your health. And we don’t even have all the right variables lined up yet.

Metabolism: Eat more to age less

So as we get older, our metabolism slows, right? That’s what they tell us. I don’t see it quite that way.

What is your metabolism? It’s essentially how fast your body breaks down the food you eat. We know that fitter people have faster metabolisms. And younger people. So what in God’s green earth does that mean?

It means that the people with lower mental strain have faster metabolisms. The less you blink, the faster your body churns. And the faster your body churns, the slower you age. The slower you age, the less likely you are to get basically any disease. Or die young.

Your metabolism is another symptom of your perception of time. As your metabolism slows, your aging process accelerates. The beauty of all of it is that you control it. The decisions you make day in and day out determine this.

Proven ways to slow down your metabolism and age faster: drink, smoke, get fat. The others we have proven over several different posts: caffeine, SSRI’s, and glasses. If this sounds like crazy talk to you, you need to go back and do some reading.

But if you’re like everyone else, you’re not looking for the fastest way six feet under. You’re looking for a fountain of youth. You’re probably looking for a time machine, but you’d settle for a fountain of youth. You’d settle just to stay where you are. So would I.

What if I told you that I thought that was possible? We’ve proven that there is only one brain disease, and it’s curable. We’ve proven that aging starts in the brain. We’ve shown that athletes age much slower. They hit menopause later. They blink less. [this matters]. They don’t get cancer. They don’t lose their minds.

Fuel your body the way it was designed to be fueled. And go out and change the world.

Aging happens when you throw in the towel. Find something you’re passionate about. Find something to fight for. And pursue it with wreckless abandon. That’s your only hope.

 

 

Menopause, periods, and what they tell us about aging

So apparently there’s a time in most women’s lives when their bodies stop working the same. We call it menopause. The average age of onset is around 49 to 52 years of age, according to Wikipedia. Some countries have average ages around 44 [like India]. It’s not completely uncommon to have someone hit menopause at 40. Here’s a little chart of the onset age:

menopause-age-distribution-chart

So what in the world does this tell us about aging? Here’s my take: menopause is a definitive milestone in aging, and should be a key factor in determining life expectancy and overall health.

Menopause, I think we can agree, is a negative thing. It happens as you age and is associated with depression, mood swings, anxiety, and irritability. It’s a negative indicator, but still an indicator. It tells you how you’re doing. It tells you how your body perceives time.

Why do people in India go through menopause so early? At least in part due to their caffeine consumption. Check out these articles. They drink more caffeine younger than most countries. Girls are hitting their periods as early as eight. Not to mention, that early menopause is on the rise in India as well. It is not a coincidence that all of these happen in the same country.

Menstruation periods are also another interesting set of time data. There’s a fairly wide array of different times of menstruation. Periods can vary from 21 to 35 days, and as always, we just chalk it up to ‘every person is a little different.’

main-qimg-4ca092bcc0654bab252410ddf7d4e61e

So take a look at this chart. Obviously, there is a pretty wide spread of possible outcomes here. But what does it mean, if anything?

You have a couple interesting measurements here, that are personalized for your body. They are not meaningless.

Periods are just part of life for most women. They are told that the timing varies from person to person and from cycle to cycle. But just think about it for a second. If your body is doing the same thing this month in 21 days, and did it last month in 35 days, what did you do differently? Which is better?

The latter. Ever heard of exercised-associated Amenorrhea? It’s when lean female athletes miss periods. If you’ve read any of my other posts, I think the athlete is the ideal human. So when you’re cycle is longer or you miss your cycle, your lifestyle has basically been better than the month before. Whatever you’ve done, you’ve done it right. You’ve reduced mental strain in your life and begun to slow the aging process.

As you can imagine, studies have shown that average length of menstrual cycle correlates to the onset age of menopause. Here’s an excerpt from this study:

The age at which the final natural menstrual period occurs may be a marker for hormonal status or changes earlier in life.91 In the landmark Treloar longitudinal study of largely white, well-educated women, those whose median menstrual cycle length between the ages of 20 and 35 years was fewer than 26 days underwent natural menopause 1.4 years earlier than women with cycle lengths between 26 and 32 days, whereas a later natural menopause (mean = 0.8 year later) was observed in women with cycle lengths of 33 days or longer.92 In addition, 9 or more days of variability in cycle length has been associated with a later age at natural menopause in this and other studies,52,59 although 1 study reported an earlier natural menopause in women with irregular menses.53

Does caffeine effect your cycle? Yes. Ladies who consume more than 300 mg of caffeine a day were twice as likely to have a cycle under 25 days. These same women were much less likely to have periods long periods. [Source]

Wow. That’s a lot of info. What does it mean? It means you should think critically about the length of your periods, because they are a very valuable tool of how fast you’re aging.  How can I possibly know that? Because I understand how it effects the human perception of time.

So use your cycle as a tool to avoid menopause and aging as long as possible. Reduce your caffeine intake, and help prolong these unwanted parts of late life.
