Health Is An Illusion

Alternate Title: Time Doesn’t Exist, Health is about right now

When you start looking at time differently, your perspective changes. If I pretend it’s my last day on earth, I’m frantic. If I imagine I have twenty years left, nothing matters. If I act like time does not exist, things get crazier.

Think about it. This is actually part of the recipe that helped me tie schizophrenia to Alzheimer’s. The brain does not perceive time. It perceives stress. It uses contextual clues to recall the length of time since a previous event occurred.

[Read Rethinking Sleep or You Control Your Sunburn for my take on how the brain’s stress-time mechanism works. I call it personal relativity]

If time doesn’t exist, what unhealthy loops are you stuck in? Are you living an Edge of Tomorrow life, but doing the same thing over and over again every day? If you’re not happy with the results, change something. It truly doesn’t matter how long you’ve been on this earth, or how long you have left, because time doesn’t exist.

If time doesn’t exist, what is health? Health is only defined by the amount of time you have on this planet if nothing takes you sooner. But if time doesn’t exist, health by this definition is only an illusion.

Health should be defined as a percentage of total body function. If all your major body systems are functioning at a high level, you are considered healthy. That takes time out of the equation. And the World Health Organization has echoed this in its definition of health being “the absence of disease” which it later changed to “complete physical, mental, and social well-being.”

Truth is what life is about. Being true to yourself, and aligning your truth with the great truths. It won’t guarantee that you’ll live any longer, but it will guarantee that you live a life with purpose. What’s it matter how long you live if you don’t feel like your life mattered?

Note: I’m not saying be unhealthy. I’m saying optimize your life right now. Because there is no difference in now and the day you die. And you don’t know how many days you have left. 

Baldness Prevents Strokes

 

You read that right. Now let me try to prove it.

Look at these heat maps for the hairiness and baldness.  I think it’s safe to say that there is a correlation with the two.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the Mediterranean diet? Probably so. But balding is a much broader problem than that. It’s really only a matter of time. Two thirds of men are bald by 60. And we know the aging mechanism. So we can call balding and hairiness part of the that.

We know that stress can cause balding. And we know that aging can cause stress. Therefore, aging can cause balding. But we already knew that.

So why don’t women go bald? I think it may be because they don’t change as much. I’m guessing the average woman’s head changes much less than the average man’s [in volume]. Unrelated fun fact: women are also more likely to have strokes.

Asians don’t go bald as much. And they are more likely to have severe strokes. 

Chemo causes people to go bald. You know this. We even have cooling caps designed to help people on chemo lose less hair. Why in the world would this work?

So if baldness is about time spent out of equilibrium, does it serve a purpose? You would go bald at the same time you get hairy, theoretically. Your brain shrinks and your brain entropy rises. The hotter your head gets, the more brain entropy you have, and the more likely you are to die of a stroke or a heart attack.

Baldness is a mechanism to prevent strokes. If you think about it, even thinning hair would help lower the head temperature, just not to the same extreme. So balding is your body quite literally adapting to a more stressful environment.

Edit: Looking back, this may be too big a logical leap. So what causes strokes? It happens when your brain pressure gets too high. Think about the correlation between glaucoma and strokes

So how could people just suddenly go bald? Some sort of stress. It could be caused by emotional distress, physical stress, mental strain, or any number of things. The real problem comes when you don’t have the mechanism in your life to combat whatever stress there is. So instead of restarting every day, you begin dying little by little.

What if my head didn’t shrink? It doesn’t matter. If you have more energy in the same black box, it’s the same as it getting smaller. [Boyle’s Law]

Rethinking Dialysis

What are the symptoms of kidney disease?

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Sleep problems
  • Changes in how much you urinate
  • Decreased mental sharpness
  • Muscle twitches and cramps
  • Swelling of feet and ankles
  • Persistent itching
  • Chest pain, if fluid builds up around the lining of the heart
  • Shortness of breath, if fluid builds up in the lungs
  • High blood pressure (hypertension) that’s difficult to control

What are the biggest risk factors?

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease

But hold on, we’ve already tied all of those together.

What is kidney disease?

It’s when your body doesn’t remove waste properly.

Glomerular Filtration Rate [GFR] is a number that indicates kidney function. As you’d probably expect, it decreases over time. So even in healthy people, kidney function decreases as you get older. Well, that’s pretty awesome. Why? Because we already know the mechanism that effects aging, so now we just apply that to the kidneys.

This is pretty simple if you’ve been through all my other posts. If not, welcome to the science fiction world. We’ve shown how you control how your body perceives time. We’ve proven how aging begins in the brain. We’ve shown how stress causes aging and how it can wreak havoc over all different areas of your life. 

What you need to know is that kidney function slows predictably as you age. Not for everyone. So I’m right. The rest is speculation, but this is not: if your kidneys work at all, there is hope for you. It means that if you can settle your brain entropy, and find your ground state, you may be able to live a normal life after all.

Much like our article on diabetes, kidney function stalls with the human perception of time. Ok, it’s not really the kidney function that stalls. The kidneys have the ability to operate the same way they always have. But because the entropy of the subject has increased, their perception of time has made time longer. Think about it. If every day is three days, and every hour is three hours, you’re going to be exhausted. You’re going to lose weight. We know that high blood pressure starts in the brain. Your feet and muscles are going to be more sore the more your entropy increases. The longer your days will get. And the more you hurt, the longer your days will get. And the next day your kidneys will function a little worse, and you’ll be a little more tired.

Overtraining can also cause renal failure or damage. Why?

It’s exactly the same thing that’s happening to older people. It’s just a lot less gradual. Your kidneys are only used to pushing a certain amount of blood through every day. I’m sure that you can increase this number with proper training. But if you continue to overdue it, day after day, never allowing your body to catch up. Your kidneys will have to work harder and harder every workout. Each workout becomes slightly more dangerous if you’re not recovering properly.

So what is kidney failure? It’s when your kidneys fail to keep up with the waste your body produces. 

So what’s the solution? We’re making the wrong assumptions. The kidneys still have the ability to work fine. The body is in overdrive, so the kidneys cannot property filter more blood than they are used to.

So your kidneys can filter 120 to 150 quarts of blood each day. As your brain entropy increases, your blood pressure increases, and you’re going to start demanding more and more out of the same kidneys, with less and less time to recover. Eventually, they won’t be able to keep up. 

If that is true, shouldn’t a transplant not work at all?

A kidney transplant only lasts around fifteen years. I mean, that’s a long time, but why wouldn’t it last longer? Because you never stopped doing whatever ruined your kidneys in the first place.

And some transplants just don’t work very well.  In this article, they blame it on the donor kidney. I’m not so sure.

How can I say this? 

Because kidney damage is not irreversible in all people. There are millions of people that have gone in and gotten dialysis, and never come back. Their bodies and kidneys recover from the stress that they are putting them through, and they don’t need the outside assistance any more. And if some people’s kidneys can recover, yours can too.

ED is a Brain Disease

You’ve heard the story of Viagra. It started out as a blood pressure drug, and doctors noticed that it was having consistent positive side effects in men.

The question is why. If high blood pressure starts in the brain, what did this drug do that helped men…perform?

If Viagra helps relax men and gets them closer to their ground state, why don’t we all just take it daily? Because it has side effects. And that is no way to function day in and day out.

Here are the causes of erectile dysfunction, according to the Mayo Clinic:

  • Heart disease
  • Clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis)
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Metabolic syndrome — a condition involving increased blood pressure, high insulin levels, body fat around the waist and high cholesterol
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Certain prescription medications
  • Tobacco use
  • Peyronie’s disease — development of scar tissue inside the penis
  • Alcoholism and other forms of substance abuse
  • Sleep disorders
  • Treatments for prostate cancer or enlarged prostate
  • Surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord

Psychological causes of erectile dysfunction

  • Depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions
  • Stress
  • Relationship problems due to stress, poor communication or other concerns

Whoa. We’ve posted about almost all of these disorders. What does it all mean? It means that the only obstacle between you and a great sex life is you. 

Most of these disorders originate in the brain, whether or not we know it yet. You may need to take a look at my archived posts.

Remember: There was a time when everything worked properly, and it’s not too late to get back there again…without medication. Your health and sanity depends on it. 

So what is the next step? 

Identify the root of your problems. Identify your stresses, and confront them head on. The solution is different for everyone, but the condition is reversible. The fact that your penis doesn’t work is not your main problem. It’s a symptom of the stress in your life keeping you from reaching your ground state, where you were meant to be.

Hyperhidrosis: Beyond the Sweat

Heavy sweating, if you’re an athlete, can be dangerous or even deadly. So what causes it and can it be prevented?

What do we know about hyperhidrosis?

Some people sweat a lot. This is what we call it. Here’s what Wikipedia says:

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Although primarily a physical burden, hyperhidrosis can deteriorate quality of life from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. It has been called by some ‘the silent handicap’.

Both the words diaphoresis and hidrosis can mean either perspiration (in which sense they are synonymous with sweating) or excessive perspiration, in which case they refer to a specific, narrowly defined, clinical disorder.

So using our crazy concept of time, can we make any progress? Yes.

Those with hyperhidrosis may have greater stress levels and more frequent depression.

Here is why that shouldn’t surprise you: these people sweat more because they stress more. Time is slower for them, so they are literally in the heat for longer than you. Think about what you’d look like if ran four miles instead of one. They are going to burn more calories, sweat more, cramp more often, and be more fatigued.

So if that is true, how do you prevent cramps?

Relax. Relax your mind, and your body. Once you start straining, time dilates. If you must push yourself beyond relaxed exertion, remember what you’re doing. Refuel accordingly. You’re going to burn a whole lot more calories under constant stress than you would relaxing, so prepare accordingly. As your blood sugar depletes, your body will circulate the remainder faster to keep levels up in your brain. This stresses the body even more, so keep your blood sugar in check. Find a routine that works for you. Take the rest that is given to you in whatever you’re doing. And most importantly, listen to your body. If you can’t focus and are constantly overheated, more exertion is not going to level you out.

What about salt?

It seems like there are a bunch of minerals lost to sweat. The current belief is, that if we replace those minerals, you don’t dehydrate, or at least don’t cramp. I don’t disagree with this. Replace whatever you lose. But know that if you can’t relax and control your perception of time, you won’t be able to eat enough bananas to counteract the strain.

Decrypting Diabetes [Part I]

What is diabetes?

High blood sugar. We test for it by monitoring blood sugar after a fasting period. If your blood sugar is over a certain amount, we call you diabetic.

Symptoms:

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections and vaginal infections

Type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, though it often appears during childhood or adolescence. Type 2 diabetes, the more common type, can develop at any age, though it’s more common in people older than 40. 

But let’s think about this for a second with our other theories in mind. We’ve shown how your brain perceives time, and proven personal relativity. So we know that diabetes is a negative thing, and it’s closely correlated to high blood pressure and heart disease. So people with diabetes have more brain entropy and experience time more slowly, and age faster. But everyone generally eats about the same. If we’re talking meal times. The diabetic mind, seems to store blood sugar. Almost being designed for closer to a fasting environment.

How does blood sugar look over time?

blood-sugar-level-chart

Why would the body release sugars more slowly in people who experience time so slowly? It seems to be counter intuitive.

It’s the same reason that you say old people’s metabolisms slow down. When your body is under stress, time is dilating, and your hunger may be uncontrollable. Think about it, if every hour is an eternity, it’s really not that crazy to be eating that often. The truth is not that drastic, but that’s the idea.

Here’s what it is: blood sugar is external stress. We know that those individuals that age faster heal slower. And those that sunburn faster, recover slower. So naturally, if blood sugar is a stress, the further you are from your ground state, the longer it takes for your body to recover or, in this case, process it.

Why are diabetics so hungry and thirsty, and pee so often? 

That’s simple. They perceive time differently. Their time is shortened because of the stress on their bodies and their brains. Just imagine twice the amount of time passing in between meals for you. That’s what it feels like for them.

Can you explain why diabetics would lose weight? 

Yes. Here’s how that works: the diabetic continues their eating habits even though their perception of time has changed. Essentially, he or she could be experiencing three days of personal time in a single day, depending on their level of entropy. So if this is true, it all makes sense. The weight loss is explainable.

Why do old people develop it so often? 

The entropy of their brains is higher. They are furthest from their ground state. This is why they recover slower, and why they lose their vision.

Is it not just a disease for fat people? 

No. It’s way more complicated than that. Plenty of skinny people have it, and plenty of overweight and obese people don’t. I wish it was that simple. It’s just not.

So is it reversible? I think so. I need to dig in to case studies. I know that you can change your perception of time. I guess it depends on how open minded you are. We know the ground state is attainable. The question is ‘what are you willing to do to get there?’

Rethinking HIV

HIV is not a sexually-transmitted disease. It’s just not.

How did I come to this conclusion? The better question is how science came to the conclusion that it was.

What is HIV?

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS, if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get HIV, you have it for life.

HIV attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells (T cells), which help the immune system fight off infections. Untreated, HIV reduces the number of CD4 cells (T cells) in the body, making the person more likely to get other infections or infection-related cancers. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last stage of HIV infection.  [source]

How do we diagnose it?

We look at your blood and test for antigens or antibodies. There are all sorts of tests, but my main takeaways: just because you tested negative doesn’t mean you don’t have HIV. Also just because you tested positive doesn’t mean that you have HIV.

Who gets HIV?

  • Prisoners. In 2010, over 20,000 prisoners had HIV.
  • Drug Addicts. People who inject drugs are 28 times more likely to get HIV. 
  • Heterosexual Females. The made up 19% of the new cases in 2016.
  • Gay males. Gay men account for 70% of the new infections in the US.
  • People in southern Africa. Far and away the most prevalent place for HIV.

Ok. So all of these people either have anal sex or drug addictions? Maybe you can buy into that. I’m going to keep asking questions. 

Are there any other things that all these groups have in common? 

Yes. Malnourishment. These groups all have different reasons for being malnourished, but they all are. Or can be.

How would you explain the disparity between the black people getting HIV so disproportionally compared to other races? 

A couple of different things. First off, they have lower body fat percentages than these other races. You know this already, but this study spells it out. That’s really it. I was going to say socio-economic disparities would be the other thing, but in this day and age it has to be drastic to cause malnourishment. Like in Africa.

What is so unique about Africa that people get HIV so often? 

HIV_world_map
HIV Prevalence Map

It’s a perfect storm of black people with low body fat and malnourishment. The economic and agricultural climate make it much more difficult to get and stay healthy, whatever that means.


So how do you explain the newborns with HIV in Africa? 

They’re born to HIV positive mothers. Those mothers are obviously passing along their nourishment to the child. I don’t think there’s a logical leap here. If the mother is malnourished, the children are likely to be malnourished. Here’s a study looking at the weights of these new borns.

What about drug addicts? 

You’ve seen these people. They do not look well. Many of these drugs are appetite suppressants, and they are often forced to choose between their next meal and their next fix.

But straight females get it too, right? 

Think about it. Straight females are most likely to have a negative body image or suffer from anorexia or bulimia. People with anorexia may develop immune deficiencies that may alter T-cell populations. That’s essentially what we call HIV.

Why do gay black guys get it so often way more often than any other subset?

A couple different reasons here: they start off with lower body fat percentages. They have malnourishment and/or body image problems. The gay culture is typically one of chiseled jawlines and thin waists. Maybe that’s a stereotype. [Here’s an article that digs into that part of gay culture.] Also worth noting, the receivers are much more likely to get HIV.

Why do old people get it more often? 

We’ve covered my opinion on aging, so almost by definition now, the aging population is underweight or malnourished [see How to age like white people]. Because of this they are more vulnerable to immunity problems. 45% of Americans living with HIV were 50 or older. 27% were 55+, and 6% were 65+. In general, older people are more likely to get it. Here’s an article that discusses it in more detail.

 

Before you call total bullshit, I didn’t invent anything here. I used the data already collected over years of scientific research, and questioned the logic behind it. I am not saying that HIV/AIDS is not real. I am just saying that the cause of the lowered immune response should be questioned. It’s hard to cure a disease when you don’t know what causes it.

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. 

 

 

Is Running the Key to Aging?

As always, let’s start somewhere completely unrelated: adolescence. 

Think about this for a moment: if our brains control our bodies, do we control our own adolescence? We always talk about puberty like it’s some event that “happens when it happens.” Consider for a moment that we play at least some role in our own development. I think it’s more than that, but I want you to keep reading.

We do not know why some people go through puberty before others. We just don’t. There’s a nice age range and we know that girls typically go before guys, but that’s about it.

So let’s make our typical assumptions. If time does not exist, what is the difference between our subject when she’s 10 and when she’s 15? Her mind. So if her mind is the only thing to change, and we know that age of puberty onset is not genetic, how do we control when we hit puberty?

There are disparities in puberty onset of different races. Take a look at this. There’s a significant average onset age difference between different races and cultures. Surely you know by now that I don’t buy into the fact that genetics controls everything we don’t understand. There are other factors at play here, and we should look at them with an open mind.

Puberty begins earlier in African American girls. We’ve looked into black culture a good bit over the past month. You know what else we know about black girls, generally speaking? They don’t workout

Think about this for a moment: Female track athletes almost always look like they’re fifteen, or younger. You pick your definition of the development of women, and you will not find it in these girls.

Bj5eDoOCUAAoz1A1
See what I mean?

Running is known to help longevity.  This article goes a lot further than that. It’s basically saying that running is the fountain of youth. So I’ve already written about how aging starts in the brain, so if that is true, what does running do to the brain? I found an article about that too, but then I got to thinking: if we don’t know how the brain works, how can we say what running does that will benefit it? Here’s what you should take away from this: aging is not what you want to do. People get ugly and less productive, and less functional as they age. Cancer and most all diseases develop later in life, as we age. So if running is what we say keeps you from aging, you should run. Or pick your cardio of choice.

So if we know that you today is the same as you tomorrow, and is the same as you in five years, what does running to do slow down the aging process? We know now that aging starts in the brain. As the brain ages, the body ages.

Running can change your brain.  This is a great post that explores the mental benefits from running at several different angles. I think it’s simple: running is a stress reliever and the right amount of cardio helps alter our perception of time.

Think about the sports where the athletes look the best. In my opinion, basketball, soccer, and tennis. Three of the most run-intense sports. I prefer to look at the professional athletes, because you’ll get a larger percentage of days and time on court. The NBA players are in a league of their own.

So find your venue of choice, and go running.

Asperger’s is Autism is curable

Yeah I know. Just bear with me a moment.

Symptoms:

  • Behavioral: inappropriate social interaction, poor eye contact, compulsive behavior, impulsivity, repetitive movements, self harm, or persistent repetition of words or actions
  • Developmental: learning disability or speech delay in a child
  • Cognitive: intense interest in a limited number of things or problem paying attention
  • Psychological: unaware of other’s emotions or depression
  • Also common: anxiety, change in voice, sensitivity to sound, or tic
  • Treatment: therapy and antipsychotics
  • Onset age: 3-60

Today, I want to take a look at Autism. It has a surprising amount of similarities to schizophrenia, including filling in the gap in our onset age timeline. Last time we proved that Alzheimer’s was curable by first proving it was schizophrenia, then showing that it was curable.

Well here’s your next simplification. Autism and Asperger’s are the same disease. In this article, the main differences are IQ, speech, and age of onset.

We say that people with Asperger’s have higher IQ’s than those with Autism. Wait…what? Isn’t that something we most people measure differently anyways? I’m not going to numb your mind with proof that IQ varies from person to person.

Speech is a real, distinguishable difference. People with Autism do not develop normal speaking patterns. People with Asperger’s typically do. The loops that effect these kids are different, but they need to all be approached the same way. Obviously If the nature of their loop involves self perception, you can imagine why they may have strange or delayed speech patterns.

The brain does not perceive time. We do. So now is the same for your brain as when you were fifteen. You and your brain are completely independent. What in the world does this mean for Autism? It means that it’s the same as schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s.

  • They have the same symptoms.
  • They are treated the same.
  • The major difference is time. But we know that the mind does not process time.

This disease needs to be lumped in with the others. I know what you’re going to say: that’s an oversimplification. Maybe so. I’m not saying it’s not a very real disease with serious symptoms. What I’m saying is we need to take an entirely different approach to the human brain to start making progress.

There are major disparities in these diseases among different racesThis is no coincidence. In other research, we’ve seen disparities, in aging, eyesight, and athleticism.

The brain is a perfect, complex computer that we do not fully understand. Some people don’t know how to operate it properly, and some have logical errors in their syntax. The only way out of our loops is reprogramming. Otherwise we are just treating symptoms.

Autism is curable. Find your own case studies. People have made full recoveries. And if you believe my basic assumptionsAll cases are curable. We were all given the same opportunity.

So how do we cure it exactly? I wish I could give you an answer to that. I’m still working on it. So far, here’s what I’ve got. Identify the loop. Identify the fear causing the loop. Identify the logic causing the fear. Rework the logic so it aligns with the proper order of things. These don’t just apply to people with these disorders. They are simple but very powerful tools that can change your life.
