A Century of Folly

The first paper I ever wrote was on Aristotle at age 16. He was one of the important teachers in my life. His words became central to my life.

“All men desire to know, but not all forms of knowledge are equal, the best is the pure and disinterested search for the causes of things…

Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them, for these only gave them life, those the art of living well…

The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain…

What is the meaning of life? To serve others and do good… I love Plato, he said, but I love truth more.” – Aristotle

Those powerful words still guide my life. Words are small and deeds are monuments but both determine character and integrity. I teach my children that it is through words and deeds that either build strong foundations or they destroy relationships so think carefully about impacts before you speak and act. How we treat all life matters because we are connected through our genes and our epigenome. I’m trying to teach my children a far different ethical system than the one that surrounds us.

Studying nature is what Aristotle had done all those centuries ago. Aristotle was insistent that the crucial point of understanding in dissection comes when putting the parts back together to see how an animal works as a whole. This evolved into systemic biological research today. I study the complexity of natural and human systems and how they impact one another. That’s been my life’s work. The Greeks cast their science from first principles, without troubling to examine the natural world. Aristotle changed everything.

Ethics has never been created on a foundation of scientific understanding of the living world.

Most are unaware that Aristotle was the founding father of biology. Biology has radically advanced since he first created a systematic foundation of observations of the natural world and life.

Even Darwin remarked: “Linnaeus and Cuvier have been my two gods, though in very different ways, but they were mere schoolboys to old Aristotle.”

“Failure to understand what is obvious can be caused by inexperience: those who have spent more time with the natural world are better at suggesting theories of wide explanatory scope. Those who have spent time arguing instead of studying things as they are show all too clearly that they are incapable of seeing much at all.” – Aristotle

‘The passage comes from On Generation and Corruption. The argumentative types are the Platonists. Their obsessions – intangible Forms, numerology and geometry – caused them to deny the evidence of their own eyes. They were blind to the structure of the world, this world. The passage is a prelude to the Invitation to Biology. For, when Aristotle said that we must attend to even the humblest creatures since there are gods there too, he was not only urging some students to pick up their cuttlefish, he was arguing, as he would until the end, with Plato’s shade. He was doing what every scientist who opens a new domain of enquiry must do: defend it before his peers. Of the whole, vast natural world, the Academy deemed only the stars worthy of study. But, and this is Aristotle’s point, we do not live along the stars: we live here, on Earth….’

“It’s not good enough simply to study the stars, no matter how perfect and divine they may be, rather we must also study the humblest of creatures, even if they seem repugnant to us. And that is because all animals have something of the good, something of the divine, something of the beautiful.. In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.”
— Aristotle

‘Nor do we live just anywhere on Earth… Lesbos and the lagoon at Pyrrha gave to Aristotle a place, calm and lovely, where he could be among natural things… Biologists often have such places. They need them, for ideas do not come from nothing, they come from nature…

I live in a nation of fools that are ruled by fools who are all willfully blind to the true structure of the world and the life they destroy.

This is worth repeating once again..

“Failure to understand what is obvious can be caused by inexperience: those who have spent more time with the natural world are better at suggesting theories of wide explanatory scope. Those who have spent time arguing instead of studying things as they are show all too clearly that they are incapable of seeing much at all.” – Aristotle

(I’d replace “inexperience” with the ignorance of the complexity of our biological and ecological systems)

Aristotle’s Lagoon

Our genes are the building blocks that connect all life forms. All life forms are complex ecosystems full of other life forms. Only microbes are individuals. Rachel Carson had yet to understand that the mitochondria in every eukaryotic cell are microbes. She would then understand much more had she read, “Symbiontism and The Origin of Species” by Ivan Emmanuel Wallin – 1927 but all researchers fall prey to blindspots… You have to cast a very wide net searching to to understand the natural world in all its complexity.

Powerful economic interests keep subject fields in silo order for a reason… connecting important multidisciplinary dots provides understanding of human health and would provide enlightenment of how the systems and products they sell destroy it. They would be unable to make profits off those who buy their destructive systems. The main problem with this analysis conducted back in 1962 was that there was zero examination of the actual food and agricultural system created in the first place. Does the agricultural and food system built on hydrocarbon technologies even provide health? Of course not… and yet it continues today. Childhood cancer has increased 67% and the health of our children is being completely destroyed.

Our children’s health has further deteriorated since this Rachel Carson Documentary first aired in the 1960s.
1960s Rachel Carson Documentary

When will the fools wake up and realize that those who have been selling them the systems that have been destroying children’s health for a century are not to be trusted? They have little to no foundation of biological knowledge and yet they go once again full steam ahead with so little understanding of health.

A resting infant has twice the air intake and oxygen needs as an adult and yet they are creating a required mask policy in our education system that deprives children of much needed oxygen for healthy development! The average indoor oxygen levels are around 25%. OSHA federal laws mandate that all employers require a minimum of 19.5% oxygen rates for their worker’s health. Adults wearing masks in indoor air spaces are only receiving approximately 17.5% oxygen. Got that? What do you think will be the result for our smallest most vulnerable children?

All microbes and viruses need water to survive. Direct sunlight radiation destroys them rather quickly. Flu is seasonal for many reasons and that’s one and the other is because few are deficient in vitamin D (the hormone our body makes from evolving with sunlight radiation) during the warm months.

The Biology of Skin Color. We only evolved with sunlight radiation not substances that are radioactive. Radiaoactive substances hijack our normal biological interaction with the sun.

Sad that so many fear the things that provide them with health and are continuing to utilize the things that never degrade and destroy themselves. They buy them by the multi-millions because they are told that they “protect” them…

Insanity, if you ask me….

Those PFC coated facemasks are doing the opposite of protecting working class citizens… clearly working class fools rarely learn the most important history and science lessons about Wall Street and capital ruling class.

Working class citizens bought radium after the 1929 capitalist heist and drank it. Notice how much they pervert science? Nature’s laws? They conceal the truth of how their radium market products destroy calcium… They knew it was dangerous because Pierre Curie published harm decades before…
“Drink plenty of fresh, invigorating, natural radioactive water from the Radium-Spa.”

Radium perverted propaganda

An American Industrialist, Eben Byers, drank a bottle a day for four years, at the end of which he died in excruciating pain from cancer of the jaw as his facial bones disintegrated…. This image of the biological damage was never featured in capital propaganda selling radium products and the markets continued to grow and expand.

They are still selling fools that radiation is harmless…
Grace Fryer is still a hero. She was a radium girl who knew she was dying and spent the rest of her life trying to warn all women of how destructive radium was because it was destroying her health and taking her life.  She didn’t want others to suffer or have the same fate. She’s my comrade. Capitalists slandered her and she never gave up trying to warn the working class being destroyed by the markets built off radium technologies.
The Tragic Story of The Radium Girls: Grace Fryer Documentary
Calcium is a metal.
“Except for its radioactivity, radium has the same chemistry as calcium. Like calcium it will form chlorides, or sulfates, or carbonates…. There was no money to buy the needed ore but Pierre went to Edward Suess, president of the Academy of Sciences of Vienna, and asked what happened to the pitchblende ore residue from which uranium had already been removed… With ingenuity, Pierre persuaded Suess to arrange for the Austrian government to give them this seemingly worthless material at no cost. Then he went to the Baron Edmond de Rothschild and asked him for a donation to cover the cost of transportation. Over the next four years, Rothschild, who at that time remained anonymous, gave repeated donations for this purpose.” – Obsessive Genius: The Inner World of Marie Curie  (Pages 91 – 92, 99)

Marie Currie

Many upper class men and women carried in their pockets or purses glass vials containing tiny particles of radium bromide..
When Pierre (Curie) heard of this, he wrote a paper warning about the danger… but perhaps flirting with danger was alluring to affluent people as was the frequent use of morphine injections and cocaine (Merck and Bayer, IG Farben products, of course)…
Even those called genius have blindposts and Marie Curie’s blindspot was the entire field of biology.

(And Israel is still the global supplier of bromide based poisons today….)

And yet, parents “believe” radioativity is harmless to their children’s development….

“Failure to understand what is obvious can be caused by inexperience (ignorance in the complexity of biological systems): those who have spent more time with the natural world are better at suggesting theories of wide explanatory scope. Those who have spent time arguing instead of studying things as they are show all too clearly that they are incapable of seeing much at all.” – Aristotle

And so blind fools continue supporting ruling class blind fools…. falling prey to authority fallacy…

Our children suffer greatly for the intellectually lazy adults our culture produces…

“Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are toxic chemicals that adversely affect human health and the environment around the world. Because they can be transported by wind and water, most POPs generated in one country can and do affect people and wildlife far from where they are used and released. They persist for long periods of time in the environment and can accumulate and pass from one species to the next through the food chain (and from one generation to the next). To address this global concern, the United States joined forces with 90 other countries and the European Community to sign a groundbreaking United Nations treaty Exit in Stockholm, Sweden, in May 2001. Under the treaty, known as the Stockholm Convention, countries agreed to reduce or eliminate the production, use, and/or release of 12 key POPs (see box), and specified under the Convention a scientific review process that has led to the addition of other POPs chemicals of global concern.”

Dioxin still contaminates all those organochlorine products fools continue buying to “protect” themselves from “germs.”…. Idiocy abounds…

Truth and understanding does not always provide happiness when you clearly see the continued folly of our species and are unable to alter its destructive course…

I want to protect and save children’s health while everyone wants to continue serving and idolizing scientifically illiterate psychopathic “eugenic” fools……

I can do nothing because I have no following, no power and no monetary support…because I refuse to sell anything.
the sick irony…
