Interzone / Christianity was created in 326 AD by Flavius Constantine
« on: February 09, 2013, 09:50:58 PM »
Christianity was created as a new religion to unite Constantine's empire. He got leaders from all the major religions in his empire and held a meeting where they decided what elements from the old religions were to be included in the new in order to create a new religion that everyone would be happy with. They replaced the names of the heroes of old legends and myths with the names of the imaginary characters that were to be invented for the new religion. Those that would not convert would be punished with death. This fact is know by the major churches around today.

Most people just follow whoever sounds smart or trustworthy.
Liberals control the media; therefore, the masses will follow those liberals they see on tv.
Since liberal authors prevail, their criticisms of the current political system are all that most are exposed to. Upon reading any of these writings, they perceive genius in the authors and grant them authority. At this point, they reject everyone out of hand because they think they found the smartest person and are unable to distinguish between them and someone smarter.
All liberal leaders espouse their philosophies as manner of manipulation. None truly believe what they preach as the holes are too glaring for them to deny.

You can buy organic beef at http://www.alderspring.com/store/page4.html for a price that is about double the usual. I linked to fatty parts and organs specifically if you need to include good, clean fats into your diet. I'm sure there are better prices somewhere. Always check your local co-ops and farmer's markets.

You can have a healthy mind while vegan/vegetarian as well. The problem with these diets is that they are extremely difficult to plan properly. Meat is a very concentrated nutrition source that can't be replaced by a single food, but must be replaced by a variety of foods that together reconstruct its properties, and hopefully surpass it. Most vegans in the US merely eliminate meat from their normal meals with no compensation. They don't even increase the portions of the sides. They are living eating incomplete meals.

What are the elements of meat that must be reconstructed? The minerals can be found by eating a combination of greens like chard and kale alongside your preferred greens. You must eat about 3 pounds of greens a day. Despite the myth, they are much less nutritionally dense than meat. This is why juicing becomes necessary. You cannot eat that insane amount of fiber. Most of these greens must be juiced. Research what style juicer is best for extracting nutrients from greens. Fat can be found in avocados, coconuts, true nuts, false nuts, certain beans, and oils. I know of no other vegan fat sources. The ones that contain cholesterol must be eaten daily. Now the protein. These must come from beans, nuts, and grains. I suggest the grains be fermented rather than cooked. This preserves their nutritional content and eliminates its negative effects. This is a traditional form of preparing grains. The amount of protein needed depends on the intensity of your strength training. In case of heavy training, the proper amount can never be consumed through food alone and must be supplemented by vegan protein isolates. Now for vitamins. An array of fruits of various types would cover it easily. Make sure to eat fruits high in antioxidants like berries. You can make juices with these in the blender because their fiber content is low enough that they don't require the use of juicer. You also need some level of fiber from somewhere. Mix the juice from the blender with the juiced greens if desired.

All that just to replace meat; however, this spectrum of foods to replace meat does surpass it. The problem lies with the cost and tedium. Eating becomes a chore under diets like this. The prospect of eating nothing but beans, nuts, and juice everyday for the next 20 years will surely damage the psyche. I just everyone try it for at least a few weeks and see how they react to it.

Finally, I might suggest that we put this in the FAQ instead of a separate patched-on sticky-note topic.

I have been living in poverty for the last year as a college student. There have been points where I could only spend $6 on food a week. When I would have money again, the thing that would rejuvenate me the most is eating globs of fat off of steaks and pork shoulders. I wouldn't even realize what a slump I was in, but in one day of high fat consumption, I would feel a tremendous mental boost in cognition and awareness. Other foods wouldn't cause this. I figured out over time that they key is fat. After that, I have been maximizing my fat intake in order to maintain my brain alert despite  eating so little. I live almost exclusively off of pork and rice, and I don't feel like I'm starving. The high protein intake has also helped me maintain my physique, though it continues to deteriorate since I can not workout in such a calorie starved state.

Fat is necessary for proper brain function. Your brain is mostly made of fat. Also, animals store minerals and some vitamins in fat. Eating globs of fat off an animal is actually nutritious. Processed fats have this removed and therefore do not provide the benefits natural fat provides.

I have found that a few beers in me provides a pick-me-up that allows to me to focus on difficult tasks with no impairment. I think 3 beers is the cut off. Coffee makes me feel physically ill. There is a guy named Dave Asprey who claims almost all coffee is sold with mold on it, which causes the sick feeling. He seems like somewhat of a scam artist, but there is some truth to somethings he says.

Salt is another key. You need salt for your brain to function properly. High salt intake does not cause cardiovascular problems. This was essentially just made up. Supposedly sea salt contains trace minerals that are hard to obtain from other sources. I have not researched that one.

Cholesterol intake is essential for testosterone production. Cholesterol is a testosterone precursor and is converted to it in your body. I always maximize my cholesterol intake. Testosterone is essential for brain function. You need a proper hormone balance to function correctly.

Low vitamin d causes depression.

These are the basics. The rest is to avoid poisons.

Avoid eating anything out of cans. They coat the inside of cans with a plastic to keep it from rusting. This leaches into the food, thus poisoning you.

Don't drink out of plastic. Plastic bottles have a hormone, BPA, which leaches into the container. This is poison.

Don't microwave things in plastic containers and eat them. This increases the amount of chemicals leached.

Don't drink anything containing aspartame. This is in most sugar-free products, particularly soda. It is a neurotoxin that is proven the be the culprit behind Gulf War Syndrome.

Avoid drinking tap water. Let it sit for a few days before drinking to let the chemicals in it evaporate out and then filter it to get the metals out. Flouride is a poison they put in the water, along with other chemicals. Besides this, in the US, the infrastructure is poorly maintained, and pipes are all leaking and rusting. They are leaching metals and soil into the water.

Don't eat corn, soy, canola, cottonseed oil, or other gmo crops. GMO crops are not safe. The studies proving its safety are proven to have labeled test subjects that were eating GMOs as not eating GMOS. All the studies proving its safety are funded by Monsanto, its producer. The ones that are not funded by Monsanto say it is not safe. Some of their crops are genetically engineered to produce pesticide in every cell. They claim this pesticide is safe for humans, yet, the pesticide is labeled as toxic on the label if you buy it on its own. Some are herbicide resistant. They are sprayed with herbicide that contains a toxin, dioxin, as  a bi-product of manufacture. This chemical is highly toxic and what causes birth defects in Vietnam. The Agent Orange sprayed in Vietnam contained dioxin as a bi-product of manufacture. The company that produces glyphosate, the herbicide the GMOs are resistant to, also produced agent orange and discovered glyphosate in their research. They are chemically related and even contain dioxin as a common bi-product. GMOs also can not be grown where they are and therefore require fertilizer. The soil is devoid of all nutrients but the bare basics needed to make the plants grow. These crops are much less nutritious than crops grown other ways.

Don't eat excessive amount of sugar.

Don't take vaccines containing thiomersal. This is organometallic compound with mercury as component atom. Shooting up mercury is not good.

Do not reuse oil. This changes the molecular structure of the oil into a more toxic oil.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I think these guidelines are pretty simple and easy to follow. I also kept this as short as possible and did not include non-health related reasons for abstaining from some of these substances.

I try to be a news aggregater, but I my reach is not large. I am also considering becoming a writer, but the pay has to be good to be worth the time effort. To me, there is no such thing as part-time writer. I think that is mostly what any of us want, just to spread information to make everyone aware of the source of their problems and how to fix them. The network of willing employees is here, there just needs to be a money source somewhere. We need to organize and start sacking towns.

If only there was someway to make a master library accessible to all, or we can all contribute to one server, or person, who can then reupload the entire collection and have distributed over P2P network to keep it alive.


Wow! How long has this existed. Why not just abandon the Audiofile section altogether and just use DC++? I just got it. First person I tried to connect to only had movies though. I'm going to look at ti better later though. We need people to keep sharing.

Most people know nothing of fitness. All it takes to be strong, big, and fit is 10 minutes of weightlifting a day. It will take months, but the difference is significant in only 3 months. The problem is that people don't know the rules of working out. These are my tips:
1. Before stepping into the gym or picking up some weights, you must reach a certain level of fitness. I'd say you must be able to to 30 pushups, 5 pullups, and 100 crunches. I think this is good baseline before you can really get good workouts done using weights.
2. Get a little overweight before beginning to workout. I'd say just about when you are just about chubby, start working out.
3. Eat constantly. Keep your stomach stuffed at all times.
4. Eat protein constantly. Do it with every meal. Eat as much meat as you can afford. This is a general rule.
5. Eat fat and cholesterol. Cholesterol is a precursor to testosterone and its consumption does not raise serum levels of cholesterol, but will raise testosterone. This is the most important way to raise testosterone.
6. Take protein powder. Choose one that is a whey isolate with all 4 BCAAs, all 23 essential amino acids, extra amino acids, and nothing else. Some have creatine and nitric oxide. Do not take these. Be certain that they don't have it. Take it first thing in the morning and before and after every workout.
7. Don't do what most meathead types do and measure your workouts by how much time you spent in the gym. Go alone, blast music on your headphones, and be done with your weight training within 15 minutes.
8. Don't workout a muscle again until it has completely recovered. This may take even as longs as a month for most first-timers(no joke). This is why most people fail I think. They try to get into workout routine suggested somewhere. You can not build your muscle until after it has recovered. Eventually your recovery time will become less than a day and you will be able to workout multiple times a day. To reiterate, if your muscles are sores, do not workout those muscles until they are no longer sore. Resist all temptation to or you will just be wasting time.
9. Have a loose routine. Some times you will take longer to recover than other times.  Have exercises planned for every day, but don't stick to it strictly.
10. Separate your body into 3 sections: legs, core, arms. Never workout more than one muscle from each sections in one day. Legs are calves and quads. Core is abs, obliques, lower back. Arms are biceps, triceps, shoulders. Your forearms train themselves with many workouts, so probably do not have to be worked out in isolation. You can do any combination from each section. This means that you will have 3 different routines to keep track of. They will not coincide(ie. quads and biceps day).
11. Ignore 3 if starting out or more advanced. Rule 3 is for after your break-in period but before reaching an acceptable level of fitness. If you are starting out, do exercises that workout many muscles. I very highly recommend pull-downs. Do wide-grip, standard-grip, and narrow-grip on alternating days. You can reach a good level of upper body strength by merely doing this exercise.
12. Do drop-sets. Find a weight where you can only manage to do 8 reps max and continue to drop the weight in order to maintain the maximum number of reps possible between 6 to 8.
13. End your workout when you reach an equilibrium where you have dropped weight to a point that you will always be able to do at least 6. You can keep going for serious muscle destruction, but after this point, working out takes a considerably longer.
14. Run after workouts in order to get your blood flowing. This aids heavily in muscle recovery. You will be much less sore later.
15. STRETCH before and after every set. This is very important. It aids in recovery and helps you retain flexibility after growing muscles. Stretch everyday throughout the day. If you have been immobile for more than hour, get up and stretch.
16. Working out your obliques is paramount to getting abs. Do dumbell side bends to get them defined.
17. Crunches only workout upper abs. Do workouts where you lift you legs to workout your lower abs.
18. Benching only works out your chest. I think pushups are far more effective at working out pecs.
19. Do plyometric workouts regularly. They are great at developing physical abilities and agility. They are also good cardio.
20. Do full iterations of each exercise. I.e. if you are curling, extend your arm all the way straight and curl all the way up to your chest. Do not do half reps. Do pullups all the way down and all the way up. Essentially, do not cheat. You will get stronger, get stronger faster, and it strengthens tendons.
21. Your legs are the base of your body and your quads are the biggest muscle in your body. You need to get your legs strong to be sturdy and balanced. The less mass you have below your center of gravity, the less balanced you will be. You do not want to be easy to knock down.
22. Do not do what most do and do all the different workouts for a particular muscle every session. Choose an exercise and stick with it until you master it. This means if it starts becoming easy and doesn't produce soreness. You will get gains much slower than before at this point. This is when you switch to a different workout. I.e. You've been doing one tricep workout twice a week for a month. This workout was very difficult at the beginning and now is fun and you are not sore an hour after leaving the gym. This means you need to do a different one.
23. Plan your diet so you do not need to take multivitamins. You should be able to get everything from food. If you want, you can take supplements. ZMA is supposed to be the one to take.
24. Make smoothies or juices daily. This is the only way you will eat the necessary amount of fruits and vegetables. Put kale, chard, berries, drupes, and fat sources like avocados and coconut oil, citrus, and whatever else you can find for cheap in your areas. The fat in the smoothie increases bio-availability of the nutrients and is also essential to health. Drink excessive amounts of this stuff and several times a day. I don't recommend using bananas as they make smoothies gooey.
25. Trim your nose hair to improve breathing.
26. Take no supplements other than vitamins and protein. These will make your body dependent on the supplements rather than adapting. This is bad for long-term health.
27. Get your blood tested before and after to see the improvement.
28. Sleeping is when your muscles recover most. Make sure to get plenty of sleep, especially if you are sore.
29. Don't use momentum in any workouts.
30. Do not skip workouts ever. You must develop a habit of going to the gym. I go everyday monday through friday without fail. I take weekends off. Find a routine that works for you.
31. Take at least one rest day every week.
32. Remember, much of this list does not pertain to advanced individuals. However, you will not be at that level until at least 6 months of regular training without interruption.

I just spontaneously wrote this, so there are probably glaring holes. This list sums up my thoughts on the matter and what I do. This is a very satisfying lifestyle. It will take up less time than most other activities you can do. It brings so much more happiness than video games. Men and women give you compliments on your physique all day, which makes life in society much easier. I read alot from bodybuilding.com to learn this stuff. I suggest you visit there, but I think I said most of the good stuff. Be aware that their main purpose is sell you drugs. I sugg4est you guys read up on the Anabolic Diet.

I have hallucinated loud music after smoking strong cannabis. It has happened a handful of times. It is always a repetitive and original melody. It was scary for me the first time it happened as it has only happened recently. But nowadays, you never know what has been sprayed on the plant.

I have hundreds of albums from audiofile that were from megaupload. Presumably, every member of this site does as well. We don't need the original uploaders to make everything available again. The problem we all have is the huge amount of time it would take to do this. So I was considering uploading my entire music library up somewhere for my convenience. All of us have extensive collections around, I would guess, 60 gigs . All out libraries would have extensive overlap, so uploading entire libraries at once for download in their entirety would make no sense. I don't know how to solve this problem, but I have ideas. If only there was someway to make a master library accessible to all, or we can all contribute to one server, or person, who can then reupload the entire collection and have distributed over P2P network to keep it alive. Or we can all make collections of more obscure albums and upload them in large batches. With the speed of internet nowadays, it won't be much effort to delete things you already have. I also think that setting up a private anus p2p network would be a rather secure one as not many people visit this site and invitation can be based on join date and post count/quality in order to insure that you will keep the network secure. There are plenty of invitation only services, but it is easy to get an invitation. Ours would have a very restrictive invitation system. it would be very unlikely that any copyright enforcement would be aware of this network, much less infiltrate it and fine members. I don't understand p2p networks in any profound way, so is it possible that with one tracker we can share the same file that we already each have on our computers? This way if we set up a network, many torrents would have many seeds from the get go. I'm done fantasizing for now.

There is no real excitement to be had while indoors. You will never be satiated by watching documentaries or whatever it is you do.

Also, a lack of vitamin D causes depression and mental weakness. You need daily sun exposure to be healthy.

While this class is not likely to actually help anyone, I don't oppose these kinds of lessons. There's no reason to restrict education to academic subjects. The personal aspect of education is almost entirely neglected. Personal lessons only go as far as to say to never question authority and to always be middle of the road and which professions are good ones. That is insane. People who were not anything about life find themselves suddenly overwhelmed by a foreign world tat they were completely unaware of due to the irrational obscuring of the real world parents and educators are expected to do. I can definitely imagine the existence of a considerable number of women who either don't know women can orgasm, or that they personally are able to. This is especially true for women from very conservative and very liberal communities, though for different reasons. The liberal women would only have encountered men who have been considered that masculinity is evil and that being in a perpetual state of malnourishment and hunger is healthy. These people can not satisfy a woman and the women being convinced of the superiority of these men would be utterly baffled as to the cause of their dissatisfaction since other men can only be worse.

I'm inclined to believe it. Isn't autism more a state of mind/set of behaviors. Doesn't it stand to reason that though an autistic individual's natural tendencies are vastly different than the normal person's, they can still learn and mimic their behavior. This external behavior is all that can be tested, it stands to reason that these individuals would still have thought patterns largely of an autistic person interrupted with a few normal patterns, at least enough to appear superficially normal and be able to make it anywhere in society.

Alas, a cure!

The instance you show appears to be an easing of suffering by getting the unfortunate kid high. They might as well if they're going to keep someone alive that really should be euthanized. However, I can imagine cannabis and other psychoactive chemicals enabling empathy and self-analysis which would allow an autistic person to break free of their debilitating thought patterns.
