OXYGEN AND CULTURE
Oxygen deficiency, hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues is the fundamental cause of all degenerative disease.
Oxygen saturation in the environment can be important to the sustainability of a particular ecosystem. The first photosynthetic organisms probably evolved about 3,500 million years ago, when all forms of life on Earth were microorganisms and the atmosphere had much more carbon dioxide. They most likely used hydrogen or hydrogen sulfide as sources of electrons, rather than water. Oxygen is essential for most life forms on earth to carry out cell respiration. The products of respiration are CO2 and H2O. The general equation for photosynthesis is the opposite of cellular respiration. Six molecules of water plus six molecules of carbon dioxide plus light energy (a.k.a. HEAT) produce one molecule of sugar plus six molecules of oxygen. 6CO2 + 6H2O (+ light-energy) -> C6H12O6 + 6O2.
Analysis of the gases of air bubbles in amber from the age of the dinosaurs 250 million years ago to about 65 million years ago, shows that the Earth's atmospheric oxygen levels varied between 26-40% compared to present levels of 21%. Ten thousand years ago it was at 38% and since the industrial revolution we have removed 0.96% oxygen. Plants, algae and certain bacteria take in carbon dioxide, combine it with water to form glucose and produce oxygen as a byproduct in the photosynthesis reaction.
As long as the environment is in balance no excess carbon dioxide or water vapor will build up, but the current increase in carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere indicates that this cycle is no longer in balance. It shows that we have reduced the global oxygen producing processes and so can no longer process all of the carbon dioxide that we are producing. The depletion of atmospheric oxygen will continue until such time as we stop burning hydrocarbons faster than the environment can absorb them, and replenish the oxygen. We are losing three oxygen molecules in our atmosphere for each carbon dioxide molecule that is produced when we burn fossil fuels. The obvious solution is to increase the photosynthetic biomass by remineralizing the earth and increasing soil organic matter, coupled with Permacultural/Schauberger management of the entire planetary water cycle.
There is a fatalistic negative feedback loop where the socioeconomy of fear means that we cut down the trees, pollute, bring oxygen destroying radioactive materials up to the surface etc...thus we become increasingly oxygen deprived, which in turn perpetuates and accelerates the neuro-chemistry, behavior and culture of fear. Those who are oxygen deprived cannot help feeling anger and grief hidden under their fear and apathy…the water of the body holds this discursive vibration and frequency and epigenetically ensures that more primitive Machiavellian genetic expression occurs, which may permit greater survival in a hostile environment. Under survival stress we regress to more base modes of consciousness, where expediency is placed above morality and unscrupulous craft, cunning and deception are used to maintain authority and power. Numb and dumb we blunder and plunder through the Pandora’s box of our nuclear nightmare. Knowing the wider context of the oxygen content of our atmosphere we can set about regreening the planet, and so establish conditions for a spiritual civilization.
As I said scientists have proven that the earth's atmosphere today only contains half the oxygen of what your body was designed for. So that means that even a healthy person only gets half the amount of oxygen needed to enjoy life to the maximum. Sedentary lifestyle, poor foods, lack of exercise, daily stress, negative emotions and shallow breathing further contribute to chronic "low oxygen" levels in the body. Even our food lacks oxygen due to chemical agriculture, early picking, time (storage and transportation), cooking, freezing and processing. Other things that inhibit the cell's ability to use oxygen include trans fats, altered fats, processed and junk food, excess food, cooked food, boiled water, aspartame, nitrates, pesticides, heavy metals, pollution, cigarettes, positive ions, radiation, drugs, sugar, white flour, alcohol, coffee and carbonated drinks.
Infection also depletes the body's oxygen, which is used to combat bacteria and other pathogens. Conversely oxygenation neutralizes environmental toxins, and destroys anaerobic infectious bacteria and parasites. Because of the fact that almost all disease thrives in a low oxygen environment, increasing your oxygen level is the most immediate life-positive action you can make. Many aspects of aging are the result of a build up of toxins in our tissues, poor oxygenation of the tissues, and a weakened immune system no longer able to withstand the onslaught of toxins in the environment. Lack of oxygen prevents the flushing out of waste and toxins resulting in blood becoming poisoned, thick, sluggish and ineffective. Life is in the Blood. The blood stream is the river of life. When the blood is clean, it has high oxygen and microbes and cancer cells cannot live in high oxygen concentrations.
“Pure blood and abundant vitality are the correct protective agencies of the life of any man.” Herbert M. Shelton.
OXYGEN VS. GAS
Normal digestion always results in some fermentation, which produces a certain amount of gas depending on the combinations, quality and quantity of food.
The gas pressure from excessive fermentation causes cells to enlarge, as gas diffuses across the cell membrane to a region of lower pressure within the cell.
Oxygen then can't diffuse itself into the cell because of the elevated levels of gas. The cell then suffers both hypoxia and gas poisoning. Plus with fungal-yeast conditions
such as candida, acetaldehyde is created, which is even more toxic than the methane, ethanol alcohol and carbon dioxide gas of anaerobic digestion. A product of alcohol metabolism, acetaldehyde is created when the alcohol is broken down in the liver. Bad bacteria are encouraged which produce carbon dioxide, ammonia, organic acids and Hydrogen Sulphide. Bad bacteria put a constant strain on the immune system and excrete a variety of toxins straight into the blood, which often spread throughout the entire body, and may well contribute to early aging.
This abiotic cascade sets up a permanent fermentation digestion for as long as we continue a diet of cooked meat, bread, starches and junk food. Because oxygen is not available the cells use anaerobic conversion of sugar to ATP, where alcohol and lactic acid are used to produce energy. This anaerobic respiration results in inflammation and dis-ease of the GI tract and contributes eventually to degenerative disease. Poor digestion also leads to poor nutrient uptake and vitamin and mineral deficiencies that, over years, can build up and massively impact the bio-chemical balance of the body and the efficiency of the basic processes therein, such as the neurotransmitters, hormones and energy production. Harmful organisms are known to contribute to conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Irritable Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease). These conditions are likely to be partly the result of inflammation on account of overgrowth of harmful organisms and presence of large amounts of toxins in the GI tract. One natural way of ensuring harmony between bad and good bacteria is by supplementing on Probiotics or eating foods rich in good bacteria.
To avoid the fermentative gas damaging cells too small to withstand the pressure ones diet needs to be well regulated and maintain a well oxygenated, varied raw diet to provide the ideal terrain for healthy body ecology. Poor nutrition and the generation of toxins and acids make oxygen less assimilated by the body. A healthier gut supports maximum digestion and oxygen capacity. Once in the more primitive anaerobic state, cells no longer function efficiently, controlled cell division is disrupted and cancer is thus more likely to occur when fermentation has taken over the body's digestion and energy generation systems. Otto Warburg, known for discovering the cause of cancer, stated, "The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen (oxidation of sugar) in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar." Cancer and pathogens need an acid, low oxygen environment to survive and flourish. "All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception…Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” - Dr. Otto Warburg.
Because raw foods contain intact (undamaged molecules), lifeforce and enzymes, along with more oxygen and structured water, they don't ferment as readily as cooked foods. By fasting, juicing and adopting a raw diet and avoiding gas producing food combinations, the reduction in gas pressure allows gas to defuse out of the cells. The cells then go back to their normal size, stop the anaerobic respiration which lessens the risk of cancer, acids and toxins are eliminated from the body and so more oxygen can get into the cells and mitochondria so that ATP can be produced by normal healthy aerobic respiration.
Eliminating gas, digestive stress, radiation and oxidative stress, relationship stress, urban environmental stress, EMF stress, existential stress, workplace stress etc… allows the body to evolve from mere survival mode to detoxification, healing and wholing. As we move into the metabolism of “wholing” we can gain the vibration coherency necessary for Flow, plugging into the Cosmos, achieving sovereignty and the Christ self. Perfect alignment with the Universe requires that we ultimately unload the unnecessary stressors that throw us off Phi. We cannot become sovereign unless we can syncotron our energy with coherent presence through the apex of the prefrontal lobes and into the entirety of our Being. Within a culture addicted to terror and distress we unconsciously gravitate towards chronic stressors to maintain a certain habituated level of HPA axis stimulation and anxiety to ensure that we are “ready for danger.” The tiger thus never goes away, it just lurks unseen at our back. We swing between arousal and boredom and our presovereign social milieu is more than happy to reflect our demons back to us, to keep us in a constant state of agitation and dismay. As long as we remain incoherent we are unable to initiate behaviors and conditions which relieve the pervasive stress and allow regeneration and wholing to occur.
Stress with its hyperactivated nervous system produces immune suppression. The origins of the degenerative condition that allows pathogen and diseases to flourish is all round nature deprivation, plus increased exposure to toxicity and radiation, coupled with the demineralization of the soils. Impaired digestion and elimination, increased acidity, lack of blood oxygen, excess carbohydrates in the diet, parasites and candida, adrenal fatigue all these and more reflect a general lack of homeostatic balance at the heart of modern life, that will always generate systemic bodily depletions, impairments and malfunctions until lifestyle and environment are transformed.
Through overstimulation we progressively become desensitized and lose our inner resources to handle crisis or to delve into the depth potential of the human experience. The key element in today’s stress paradigm is recovery. In a society where there are stressful influences coming at us from all directions, we must cultivate methods to turn the stress response off so the body can rest, relax and repair. To re-establish balance in all systems, replacing lost nutrients and eliminating waste products accumulated during the process. The autotoxicity, desensitization, inflammation and devitalization resulting from excessive stress leaves us vulnerable to numbness, conformity, suggestibility and passivity. Thus we remain a prisoner of the dark without a light to find out way out. To break the cycle a reorientation to reality is necessary, to see that unmitigated stress is simply not to be tolerated, and certainly not to be accommodated without severely undermining of our quality of life.
The presovereign culture actively and passively prevents sovereignty and so we must transcend the culture and the definition of "human" thus far.
