“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.”― Brian Herbert, House Harkonnen
Santiago Gonzalez has a unique mind and loves to program computers. At just 14-years-old he is already fluent in about a dozen different programming languages, and thousands of people have downloaded his 15 or so iPhone and iPad apps.
His daily routine is something most of us can find admirable. Typically getting up at 5:30am, he spends the first hour of his day programming at home, then, after preparing for school he heads off to the Colorado School of Mines, a research university devoted to applied science and engineering.

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - “Criminal Kiev Regime Gets a CNN Makeover… Cue More War” … “Between whistling bullets, the intrepid CNN reporter also informed viewers, without verification, that the Russian army was amassing troops on its side of the border with Ukraine.   This absurd reduction of history provides a much-needed makeover for the illegal Kiev regime that seized power in February 2014.“

Scientists Explain How Fasting Fights Cancer, Triggers Stem Cell Regeneration & Changes Your Brain

No comments:
Via Collective Evolution, 27 August 2016

A number of ancient health practices are proving to be effective in multiple ways. We recently posted an article about meditation, and how neuroscience can now explain what happens to the brain when we meditate. Now, scientists have discovered the first evidence of a natural intervention triggering stem cell-based regeneration of an organ or system. The study was published in the June 5 issue of Cell Stem Cell by researchers from the University of Southern California. The research shows that cycles of prolonged fasting protect against immune system damage and induce immune system regeneration. They concluded that fasting shifts stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal. (1)

Human clinical trials were conducted using patients who were receiving chemotherapy. For long periods of time, patients did not eat which significantly lowered their white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles “flipped a regenerative switch, changing the signalling pathways for hematopoietic stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems.”  (1)

“To little fanfare in the West, NATO member Turkey began a ground invasion into northern Syria. Initially, Turkey claimed their operation was in order to support “Syrian rebels”  who aim to recapture territory from ISIS, but now we discover that may have only been the cover story.”  Still evolving?
ALSO - Dozens of people have been killed in Turkish bombardments in Syria as Ankara ramps up its unprecedented offensive against the Islamic State (IS) group and Kurdish militants.

Will the International Space Station be decommissioned soon?

By Megan Ray Nichols via The Watchers, 28 August 2016

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and seen a strange, slowly moving light cross the horizon? Chances are it wasn’t an alien spacecraft, but instead, the International Space Station flying by. This extraordinary structure has been in orbit since 1998 and occupied since November of 2000. It has been an invaluable habitat for many space and aeronautics groups such as NASA, Roscosmos, CSA, JAXA, and ESA.
While the ISS continues to carry out important research and experiments for many countries’ space exploration programs, it originally was scheduled to only be occupied for 15 years. The future seems to indicate a new series of space stations and exploration strategies that may render the ISS unnecessary. Between the influence of private sector competition and a need to cut down costs by focusing on advancement instead of maintenance, NASA may soon be calling it quits on one of their most prized projects.

Concerning the Integration of Past Experiences

No comments:
By Julian Rose via The Waking Times, 25 August 2016

Nothing which becomes manifest ever disappears. It becomes integrated into the great body of ethereal  matter we call ‘the collective unconscious.’
If we try to sublimate our painful and less happy experiences, they will simply reappear at our time of passing, and play their role in determining the work still required of us in the next cycle of reincarnation.
But we can lay all before the omnipotent compassion of Source and ask to be aided in our process of psychic and emotional healing. Healing and integration are two indivisible parts of one whole.
Pushing away that which we feel disinclined to face up to, actually makes that thing stronger.
It’s an interesting irony. But once we accept that we have to take responsibility for our actions – all of them – then we start the process of defeating the demon at our door.

Short Update & Remote Group Healing for the Weekend of the 27th of August, 2016

Did you know that the most disliked word in the world is 'moist'? An ongoing poll by Oxford University press is finding that it is currently the most disliked word so far. How random is that? And how random is it that I included that here? I think being random is healthy as it catches people by surprise as you step out of the 'norm' of society, out perhaps out of your box as well. We can be so conditioned in life to do and act certain ways, but it's really important that we find our own path and move beyond the beliefs which are sometimes forced upon us because of our culture and society.

If you missed it, I recently posted about our San Pedro plant medicine trip next year in Peru. The date is now the 19th of August for the 10 day trip, with a 2 day extension. You can find the article here. I'm really looking forward to returning to Peru. Near the end of my first journey over there, after I had experienced around five traditional despacho Q'ero Shaman led ceremonies, five San Pedro / huachuma sessions and one ayahuasca session, I felt that I had an option in terms of my future path, to return and become an apprentice of those who lead such ceremonies but I also felt I had some more tasks to complete before I did such a thing. I like my future to be a surprise as I already see too much, but the plant medicine is certainly an important area of life for me. From my perspective, the physical location that holds the space is very important, and Peru is one of those places on the Earth best suited for inner journeying work.  

The Roundatbable Forum is going along nicely and has really reached the stage where it's ready to sit alongside transients' new re-design, so I will be getting back to working on that in the coming weeks and hopefully will get that up, replacing this site, within say 3-4 weeks from now. 

I'm heading back to the U.S. around mid November and will catch up with a few of you, out there, again. 

For those taking part in our remote group healing session this weekend, please let us all know so we are aware of who will be there with us, by replying via a comment here or sending along an email via  the Contact & About link through the Menu. You can find current and past sessions via the 'Weekly Healing' link in the menu, as well as links to feedback focused articles discussing some of the work this group gets up to outside of our primary healing intentions.
