Common Diseases

What are diseases?

A disease or dis-ease is anything that makes us feel unwell or suffer in any way. In that sense, ignorance as a cause of suffering is a disease.

Despite the improvements in hygiene and living standards, the best available drugs and medications, dis-ease continues to manifest in many different ways.

As we progress as a society and as a civilisation dis-ease at this time in our history is as rampant as ever and new diseases continually appear

Here we present a little of what we know about various conditions and what may influence a positive outcome.

What is a disease?

A disease is:

Anything that is against humanity Anything that causes pain and suffering Anything

Global Genocide List

Atrocities at the behest of emotion and reason

Genocide takes many forms and represents humankind’s incapacity to be human and a degree of inhumanity towards one’s fellow man that is beyond the understanding of the rational mind.

Genocides take many forms, at one level there is an aversion to a neighbouring community and the development of aggression followed in some cases by complete extermination.

In addition to total genocides where entire populations are reduced near to zero, the art of cultural genocide continues today as Christianity for instance attempts to replace scientific paganism and other cultural practices as does its offshoot Islam that will happily commit genocide as it does in Kashmir and Myanmar.

This is only a partial

East vs West

Spiritual truth in the East and the lack there of in the West

Gaia as the world tree by Alex GrayThe tree of life giving life – East but being destroyed by human greed, the West

The philosophical and lifestyle differences between East and West are apparent particularly when travelling from any western country to India. It is such a crazy chaotic place and yet there is something wonderful and transcendent in India not in addition to the resplendent colours and the joy on people’s faces.

I’ve written several posts on the subject and now thanks to a line by Chaman Lal, the penny has finally dropped in regard to what I’m attempting to

Education Fails

When fictions and beliefs are taught as truths

Most parents want their children to become successful and happy in life, most often with more emphasis on success because they believe that success is the key to happiness. Success as in money is the flag of aspiration and meaning in life that supersedes almost everything else and children today are being driven en-mass towards this ill-defined goal.

Success is a great many things and every individual develops their own interpretation. While the most basic success is to grow into life, reproduce and see one’s children grow into life to the point where one can experience grandchildren represents the greatest universal success because it is biological and represents the natural continuation of

Islamophobia

And does it affect one’s health?

Phobias are an extreme and often irrational fear of or aversion to something. Women are often terrified of mice or spiders, mice may carry some disease and some spiders are deadly and therefore must be avoided. Avoiding them or having them exterminated from one’s home is a sane healthy choice, screaming and fleeing is an over reaction.

Phobias are one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States. The National Institute of Mental Health suggests that eight percent of U.S. adults have some type of phobia. Women are more likely to experience phobias than men. Typical symptoms of phobias can include nausea, trembling, rapid heartbeat, feelings of unreality, and being preoccupied

Dealing to Our Trash

An element destroying our habitat

This subject is a no-brainer. If we are going to want stuff, it should do what we want and last a lifetime. If we think of our most basic requirements for life the land we depend on for growing our food should be kept in pristine condition yet every year we are dumping millions of tons of harmful chemicals into our soils for short-term increased production and ease of management.

Our cell phones and electronic devices are one of the most contentious issues because the manufacturers what you to buy a new device every year and discard the old which has a finite life. This was exacerbated by Apple who were accused of rolling

A New Paradigm in Law

An ancient rational to be revived

From part one

In part one I have given an overview of how the law has been corrupted to serve the rich and powerful at the expense of not only the people but of continued human existence and life on earth therefore a new paradigm in law is way overdue. I don’t expect these ideas will be a more successful than attempts to save the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef yet these ideas must be expressed and perhaps at some point before we go extinct some of the rich and powerful may find their social consciences awakening to the reality that is looking them in the face.

The ultimate prize in

Abeera's Short Life

The tragedy of living as an Islamic woman

Abeera’s story reflects the ‘new typical’ for a girl living under Islam. Yet even though her short life was tragic, she knew life and never yielded to blind belief. Most of the world has become familiar with the way that Islamic societies treat their women and the voices of the Mullah’s in Saudi and other Islamic countries claim that women are not humans, but animals to be owned and traded.

Most people have also heard of honour killings and the fact that Muslims are not very big on education. The Islamic scholars protest that if the information is not written into the Koran, the Hadith or the Sira, then it’s not worth

How Will the World End?

Many say the end is nigh

Doomsday forecasters and prophets like Nostradamus have forever been predicting the end of the world. The current end of days forecast was for December 2012, but that failed to happen yet extinction seems inevitable to many.

There are many theories about how life on Earth may end, they include being struck by an asteroid or comet, gamma-ray bursts from some far off dying sun, a shift in the Earth’s magnetic poles or global warming, a fire that most of us are adding fuel to.

We know that Earth has a finite life as does our entire solar system, but this life is counted in billions of years and it seems logical that if we

The Question of Truth

And that truth will set you free

As children growing up we are taught to speak the truth as we see it, yet we learn to see that truth is often a matter of perspective and in some situations where a number of people have witnessed the same event, their telling is different because they all saw from a different perspective, a major problem when the law is involved. So what is referred to as the truth today is a convenient concept that most of us can agree upon.

This most of us has come to distinguish between various truths in relation to what we choose to believe this. The Christians believe that there heavenly guard is real even though

Fashion

Flavours in times of of change

Published on: 2 Nov 2014, updated, 2 Nov 2018

Fashion changes by the season and to a large extent is driven by the marketing division of the fashion industry, but it’s really an age-old phenomenon that’s probably existed since before we wore clothes and is inspired by people’s sense of ascetics and comfort.

In some ancient cultures, fashion is irrelevant as people wear traditional costumes although even within those cultures, there is room for subtlety to express better quality, greater comfort and social status. To a large extent the idea of fashion has driven the clothing industry since it began and today it has become something of a monster as the fashions change from
