I want to trace your synapses and maybe help form some anew in the process by revealing some thoughts.
Something to help you loose the binds:
We exist where none know the name of anything. We exist where folly is found not only in the labelling of the unknown but also in the authority
None know the location of them-self (without grace) and yet many claim to know the location of other things outside of themselves.
None know the hour (without grace) and yet many have created circles and entrapped them-self and others within them.
Relativity they claim as they borrow the timings of a body and apply it to another.
There is a language of the gods which all conduits speak. This language has been subverted and taught to few.
None can give an answer they do not have. Here they use probabilities, a tool which eases the writing of their stories.
There is a garden called the mind of man. It has been badly tended for a long period. As the garden is restored and the wildness allowed to return its
fruit shall change the world.
i like words and they are easy for me to eat so i am a bit fat. if my text is too "large" and does not fit the circumference of the circle please
A placebo ( /pl?'sibo?/ pl?-see-boh; Latin placebo, “I shall please” from placeo, “I please”) is a simulated or otherwise medically
ineffectual treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient. Sometimes patients given a placebo treatment will
have a perceived or actual improvement in a medical condition, a phenomenon commonly called the placebo effect.
In medical research, placebos are given as control treatments and depend on the use of measured deception. Common placebos include inert tablets, sham
surgery, and other procedures based on false information. However, placebos can also have a surprisingly positive effect on a patient who knows
that the given treatment is without any active drug, as compared with a control group who knowingly did not get a placebo.
In one common placebo procedure, however, a patient is given an inert pill, told that it may improve his/her condition, but not told that it is in
fact inert. Such an intervention may cause the patient to believe the treatment will change his/her condition; and this belief may produce a
subjective perception of a therapeutic effect, causing the patient to feel their condition has improved — or an actual improvement in their
condition. This phenomenon is known as the placebo effect.
Placebos are widely used in medical research and medicine, and the placebo effect is a pervasive phenomenon; in fact, it is part of the
response to any active medical intervention. Archie Cochrane suggested in 1972 "It is important to distinguish the very respectable, conscious
use of placebos. The effect of placebos has been shown by randomized controlled trials to be very large. Their use in the correct place is to be
The placebo effect points to the importance of perception and the brain's role in physical health. However, the use of placebos as treatment in
clinical medicine (as opposed to laboratory research) is ethically problematic as it introduces deception and dishonesty into the doctor-patient
relationship. The United Kingdom Parliamentary Committee on Science and Technology has stated that: "...prescribing placebos... usually relies on
some degree of patient deception" and "prescribing pure placebos is bad medicine. Their effect is unreliable and unpredictable and cannot form the
sole basis of any treatment on the NHS."
That is some powerful stuff yeh? Yet as with most things more research (boring) is to be conducted before any final conclusions are to be drawn. But I
would say you are a fairly smart cookie when you want to be and sometimes even when you don't. Nothing slips by the senses, the ego for sure, but all
does the psyche know.
i have no problems recognising a power or a thing exists beyond the walled garden of language which allows the expression and recognition of the
individuated psyche, a pool of everything, a place where everything is understood and from which all motion is issued and returns. I have no problem
recognising the polarities of the rod of action.
There is a language of the gods which each conduit speaks. It is a language which due to its nature is open to all, jung called it the CU, but to call
it unconscious allows the inference of it being inert which it is not.
What has this to do with placebos? Every moment we are inundated with information streaming through our sense system and though we might not
acknowledge it consciously it is processed regardless. All the text you are reading at this moment is a collection of symbols given meaning through
education. Symbols have a power whether we recognise it or not. Art is a testament to this.
The language of symbols which is just a division or walled garden like any of the current langues and is not the language of the gods spoken of
earlier but still it's simplicity makes it illusive. it's in plain sight but rarely seen.
A quick introduction to this language:
Traffic signals are good examples of the language of symbols as they mix and match both specific symbols tied to a word meaning and symbols of an
unspecified format. A right arrow followed by the word "only" on a roadside indicates to the operator of a motor vehicle that.... well you get the
point.... maybe.... you have to be dumb to be smarts.
If a pill is accepted as a symbol and that symbol has an effect upon the outcome of an event what else can symbols do? Would you like a cigarette?
Continuously inundated by symbols are they not given a second thought? If one sees images of death or disease and is told it is a result of a symbol
which they have just removed from the packaging and intend to imbibe, is it not possible if their heart is not clear it can affect?
In contrast to the plethora of publications on placebo effects in patients, very little is known about placebo effects in healthy volunteers
during clinical pharmacology studies. We therefore reviewed the adverse events spontaneously reported during placebo administration in 109
double-blind, placebo-controlled studies involving 1228 volunteers. The overall incidence of adverse events in the healthy volunteers during placebo
administration was 19%.
The point is the dangers of symbolism/idolatry have been told and we have ignored it at our own peril.
I am crazy move along.
