Sress...another vague term....

What, the metals smurf back to where they grew within Earth, the woods
here in Germany go back to the intircacy they had before being
choopped down and turned into fields or forests of just a few tree
kinds, maybe growing in rows, and I can drink out of the rivers and
I'd say for my lifetime and many to come humans messed up the energy
harmonies and others of this world too much.

Given the legends once here and not knowing lands' end and walking
through huge woods devoid of humans with the lore of your people in
mind, I'd say there is a lot of a worth lost maybe forever.
And similar thoughts expressed with wrong spelling:

They certainly have not. Traditional therapies are often ways over a
thousand years old or more, and electricity apart from magic
equivalents was not invented there yet, nor insulin shocks.
A lot of traditional healing has the use of drugs, which either just
the healer takes or both together, for THE first and main healing
At points that is sufficient, at others it might take some days with
other tasks for the person imbalanced, helping them to find balances
back. And in some very long cases they might be sent to sort of a
sacred travel under special group conditions with others,
or been given some other "sacred" tasks.
Though a lot of what I heard tends to just take several hours or days.
And there is no dysbalance "shake" into balance tht I know to.
Level-alterations within some or many of the eg.-programs can be made
quite rapidly, but that is more like a retuning of scales, and in some
forms of healing a lot to do with altering attitudes of the person
themsleves, too, not some shake-thingie.
The human alive brain is not a milk-shake.

Apat form that the snapping bit sounds wrong to me...
And you are sure that suicide is not part of another order?
Have you ever calculated through from older times what would happen if
the wrong people would not kill themselves and have children and how
the stability of the herd would be effected?

Eg.balances on certain settings.
Often if you do not feed them off the correct way with some of the
stuff they request.
And some grey weather stuff can add energy changes boosting it up.
And not enough sunlight can.
What it is about is maybe what the other said about "quiting"
Not the time to have rank-fights with other herd members and have sex
for children maybe.
Also sorting out folks too instable of genetics.

>Are you sure you are not confusing normal sorrow with major depression here?
Sorrow in my language translates to something else than lost life-long
love which would be very extreme for me, too, and there are old
people who follow their partner into the grave within years, though
by bio-clocking they might have had ten or twenty years more.
Though that might be even a level higher.
If the will to stop living is strong enough, systems shut down
depending on culture and skills I heard in some cases can be done
within a day or two towards death.
I heard from Asia and Australia that there some people kill
themselves within half a day to one and a half days by simply sitting
down and wanting to die,
the differences of suicide methods somehow tell me a lot about
And that is one of the most correct methods I heard about.
And, when done within just half a day, for me somehow of high style,
when contemplating suicide styles of cultures and connections between
By the way, someone told me that in a place in Japan they had signs
in the underground:
"Do not throw yourself on the rails in rush-hour.
Take regards of your fellow citizen."

That is the advantage of bainsurfing...

I commented that from an autistic point of view before I believe.
By the way, I never managed to get stuff going from eg.3 to eg.1
Don't ever recall being within the language structurer.
No aware direct sequencer sector, nor brainstem nor temporal cortex
accessing data. Only sort of hazy occtipital, parietal and back half
cingulate data within me, basically not worth mentioning apart from to
Your understanding is not congruent with mine.
>I still will not believe that crosscorrelation of any amount of sloppily

Actually it can.
Sometimes if I read some stuff here it's like getting sector data or
energy data hailing in, or like struggling though odd neuro-English
words here, and while at it, getting "coresponding pattern replies"
that maybe else I never would have though about, one of the things
that fascinate me about this room.
Often I wish they'd not use such odd words, or explain them, as a lot
here, especially when being just some letters, is not translated.
But then again Scientology does such, too, and some other branches,
too, and me myself with friends as well; guess that's just the way it

Does pattern matching not work at all in your brain?
Sort of like LTP = ?
Some stuff of Frank,
signals staying longer in the own areas = yeah, if I want them to, or
order some area(s) to do so...
Not that I really know if all I match is so.
Have an older German neuro-book here with a model of a transmitter.
Starting at it after reading the text was having the effect it might
have for others to read it is a disc and see a sphere.
Imagine looking at a round cube.
I believe the thingie that puzzled me most had to do with "electron".
??? Has anyone ever seen one ???
Because if not that might have been the bitsie that might "make the
disk round", and then it'd fit.
I am serious about the question, can anyone give me any reference
to someone with some machine or whatever actually seeing a single
Or has someone at least heard that anyone ever saw one?
Or is an electon just some singly unproven theoretical concept?
