There is an interesting theory which suggest that FAITH could, potentially, be the greatest problem solving tool known to man, indirectly that is? It
is based on the idea that thought or the phenomena of consciousness modifies our genetic code or DNA. I'm no expert in this particular field
but the idea is that the deliberate act of faith allows the genes associated with intelligence to increase in capacity; capability.
It can reasoned that a beings capacity for intelligence is analogous to infinite potential energy. However, how does one unlock this
hidden, intelligence, potential? If thought; consciousness, hypothetically, is the active principle in DNA modification, then FAITH which is belief
in something which can't be tangibly manipulated or scientifically proven could act as a catalyst for the expansion of an individuals capacity for
intelligence since the 'object' of faith represents an unknown, undefinable, idea. The intelligence of a person must expand in an effort to solve or
define; delineate this unknown?
This is the theory anyhow. Of course, the mechanism whereby this 'growth in capacity' occurs is much more complex, this is the simple idea behind

I also think that the "key" to unlocking that potential resides in an Alchemical perspective towards the human being, but framed within the context of
a "monistic idealism" (consciousness, not matter is primary) such that the free self, the liberated, creative self, the happy person, resides
precisely prior to any distinction or impression and then via a sharp and instantaneous quantum leap (recognition), not of faith, but of gnosis
(knowing) born of the capacity to allow one's conception of self and everything else, to dissolve in the "crucible of the Absolute" (to use an
alchemical metaphor) - poof, we've been re-cognized by the consciousness of consciousness, the point of leverage or the "towrope" to a higher order of
being and awareness, what might be called a trans or supra-rationalism, which is not divorced from either reason, or logic, and this then is what
migth be called the "logos" or the spirit of truth ie: infinite intelligence, and in theory anyway - infinite bliss!
And also capable of precipitating the tipping point in the regeneration of the human being, by recognizing one's own self as a channel of universal
and even of divine energy staight from source, something we actaully tap into every night during dreamless sleep, but instead of simply reactivating
all our old energy and thought patterns (and personality defects..) in the morning, we are at least in potentia, a whole new creation, where our
entire energy, chakra, endocrine and organ and cellular regeneration (a process to be described in more detail) infrstructure, at ALL LEVELS, may be
upgraded, effortlessly, even while we sleep, so there's nothing to it, only faith or the capacity to recognize one's self as a type of "work in
progress" ie: a little house being turned into a MANSION!
I owe an apology here for continually promising but not delivering on the "Elixir of Life" Superfood Supersmoothie element of this thread I promise I
will get to it, but here I am, again, not at my own home computer with my cable bill having lapsed (I'll be CANCELLING all TV as of tomorrow, no more
I'm done with that part of my life don't even watch it anymore anyway while still paying for it - duh!), so I humbly thank you dear reader one and
all, for your continued patience in that regard. And when it arrives, we ought to be able to then quickly move towards a re-synthesis of this entire
thread, distilled down and purified into a very simple and straightforward daily strategy, while continuing to go about living our regular lives
(although don't be surprised if people start noticing many differences in you, not just in your ever more pleasant demeanour, but even the radiant
glow of the skin on your face, and other significant body and life changes).
In the interim I recommend the brainwave entrainment, more physical body motion (excercise), and increased human interaction, in preparation.
Oh and please, now would be the time to take a BEFORE photograph of yourself, date it and tuck it away, ok? For anyone who's in for this
transformative thing, for real this time (I'm not talking about a three day Tony Robbins seminar here, sure to wear off - no dis there on the big guy
btw), whereby the transformation will occur at ALL LEVELS, from the top down, and from the bottom up (think fountain of youth), as we commence the
process of initiating the catalyst for an ongoing alchemical regeneration of the human being - in this case, namely, YOU!
And if you are really young for example, and don't yet need much physical transformation, prepare, if you do not smoke, to live to be OVER 110 years
old if not 120+, I'm very serious! You'll say to your great great great grand kids, that you saw it first right here on ATS way back in 2010/2011, and
they'll be dismayed!
