Why Are We So Obsessed With The Idea Of “Beauty?”

Published

on

The idea of what is and isn’t beautiful when it comes to the human body is thrown at us a lot. Pretty well everything in the mainstream media is geared towards it, either obviously through famous figures that they sell as sex symbols, or less obviously through the amounts of make-up that even an evening news anchor will wear to make themselves “camera ready.”

Even if you personally feel as if you have moved beyond this obsession and are unfazed by it, I encourage you to take an honest look at your own life. When it comes to your own body, how do you truly feel about it? Are there things that you wish you could change? How about when it comes to how you look at others? Even if you are happily beyond the superficial stage with a significant other, who do you find yourself randomly physically attracted to?

We all  buy into this idea of “real beauty” that is being sold to us, to varying degrees. In this week’s episode of These Guys, we explore the obsession we seem to have with real beauty and present an alternative way to look at it and ultimately move beyond it. Check it out:

Summary Of Points:

  • The current Hollywood/Mainstream Media idea of “real beauty” doesn’t even make sense, and has changed over time, showing how crafted it is.
  • It has gotten so obvious that organizations (such as Dove) have built entire campaigns around doing the opposite. But even in those they often still give in to certain “beautiful” expectations (ex. airbrushing).
  • Let your health be the guiding factor in how you look at and treat your body. Make changes to take better care of yourself and feel your best, not to meet a societal expectation.
  • There are a lot of preventable leading causes of death that are avoidable if we work on the relationship that we have with our body and build a love for making it as healthy and capable as possible.
  • Our superficiality with how we look at others is a driving factor in maintaining these ideas of “real beauty.” Change comes from not only working on how we look at ourselves, but also how we look at others.
  • The dating world is driven by this. The popularity of apps such as Tinder is proof of this, which is based almost solely upon physical attraction through pictures.
  • The hunger to be “sexy” is never satisfied. Celebrities that receive so much praise and adoration for their appearance are an example of this, since they are still looking for improvements and changes to be made (ex. Justin Bieber).
  • A lot of what you dislike about yourself and regularly try to hide are not even seen or judged by others as much as your mind may lead you to believe they are.

UAF 9/11 Study Concludes “Fires in WTC Could Not Have Caused” Building 7 To Collapse

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The final report of an extensive four-year computer modeling simulation that was followed by a robust peer review process concludes that WTC 7 could not have collapsed as a result of office fires, as the official NIST explanation claims.

  • Reflect On:

    Does it seem like full disclosure in many areas, including 9/11 truth, are being held back in order to burst into public awareness simultaneously?

The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth announced on March 25th that the final report from researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on the destruction of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 in New York City late in the afternoon of September 11, 2001 has been completed. And as expected, it debunks the official story:

The UAF team’s findings, which were the result of a four-year computer modeling study of the tower’s collapse, contradict those of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which concluded in a 2008 report that WTC 7 was the first tall building ever to collapse primarily due to fire.

“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7 could not have caused the observed collapse,” said Professor Leroy Hulsey, the study’s principal investigator. “The only way it could have fallen in the observed manner is by the near-simultaneous failure of every column.”

The final report, entitled A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse of World Trade Center 7 – Final Report, includes clarifications and supplemental text based on public comments submitted in response to a draft report released by UAF and AE911Truth on September 3, 2019.

The UAF team’s final report is the result of an extensive four-year computer modeling effort that was followed by a robust peer review process. The peer review included dozens of public comments as well as external review by two independent experts, Dr. Gregory Szuladzinski of Analytical Service Company, a leading expert in structural mechanics and finite element modeling, and Dr. Robert Korol, a professor emeritus of civil engineering at McMaster University and a fellow of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering.

What’s Next?

Richard Gage, president and founder of AE911Truth, said that “It is now incumbent upon the building community, the media, and government officials to reckon with the implications of these findings and launch a new full-scale investigation.”

Of course, asking for a new full-scale investigation has always been the mandate for AE911Truth. One would suspect that if an investigation has not been launched by now, when a majority of the public believe something is being hidden from them about 9/11, no amount of proof about the falsity of the official statement will be able to get the ball rolling.

Still, the work that continues to be done by AE911Truth and its allies among the 9/11 victims’ families keeps this issue in the spotlight, and reminds us that important facts about 9/11 have yet to be revealed, facts that question the very nature and motivations of our government and other powerful institutions. The 9/11 activists will now use the findings in the report as part of a formal “request for correction” that the group plans to submit to NIST in the coming days. Richard Gage noted,

“The indisputable errors documented in our request for correction will give NIST no way out of correcting its deeply flawed report and reversing its conclusion that fires were the cause of the collapse.”

An admission by NIST that their conclusions about the reasons for the WTC 7 collapse is tantamount to an admission that explosives had been pre-planted in this building for this event, so we shouldn’t hold our breath. It would bring down the entire house of cards that is the official 9/11 narrative.

As I mentioned in a previous article ‘The Implosion Of Building 7 Remains The Irrefutable “Smoking Gun” Of A 9/11 Inside Job,’ the presumption of a controlled demolition would dictate that WTC Building 7 must have been slated to be hit by a plane like the other 2 towers, as part of the master plan of the perpetrators. When that was part of the plan was botched, they decided to ‘pull it,’ in the recorded words of the building’s owner Larry Silverstein. The lame “offices fires” explanation, something that had never happened before in the world to a high-rise building, was the only one that was left for them to use.

The Takeaway

Truth is coming, about 9/11, about JFK, about hidden technology, ETs and about a hundred other things. It seems to me that full disclosures of all of these have been held up, or are creeping along very slowly, as if they were being loaded into a cannon for one huge explosion of truth that is set to have a profound impact on our collective consciousness. Rather than being impatient for one particular disclosure or another, I believe it’s best to try to see a pattern that relates to the readiness of the collective mind, and do our part to prepare ourselves.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Wins Key Court Case In Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A key victory came yesterday for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as a Washington DC court ruled the Army Corps of Engineers must perform an Environmental Impact Statement to show the Dakota Access pipeline will not negatively affect the tribe's land.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we seeing further shifts in the old paradigm of money first and environment second? Are we seeing the power of relentlessly standing up for what you feel will make humanity and nature thrive?

This is a huge victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota. Their relentless energy towards having a full environmental impact statement (EIS) done with regards to the Dakota Access Pipeline that would run through their land and potentially impact their water supply, has finally paid off. This will bring the future of the Dakota Access pipeline into question entirely.

A Washington DC court ruled that the US army corps of engineers must conduct a full EIS given that their existing permits violated the National Environmental Policy Act (Nepa).

“After years of commitment to defending our water and earth, we welcome this news of a significant legal win,” said the tribal chairman, Mike Faith. “It’s humbling to see how actions we took to defend our ancestral homeland continue to inspire national conversations about how our choices ultimately affect this planet.”

You may recall from 2016, the Sioux Tribe rallied and inspired millions all over the world to help in getting behind the movement to raise awareness about the environmental impact of this pipeline. People travelled from all over the world to join the tribe on the ‘front lines’ as clashes sometimes became violent between water protectors and police, as well as pipeline workers.

I recall being down in North Dakota covering this story and was amazed by the sheer amount of people coming to support, as well as the efforts police were taking to silence journalists from covering the story. Cell phone jammers were used to stop those on-site from live streaming what was going on. Independent media were the only form of media in Standing Rock for months until eventually, mainstream media showed up. There appeared to be a long-standing solidarity within mainstream media to portray water protectors as violent and to avoid telling their side of the story when it came to the pipeline. This was why independent media was so important at that time.

In December 2016, the Obama administration denied permits for the pipeline to cross the Missouri River and effectively ordered a full EIS to be done in order to determine what alternative routes could be taken as well as what impact the pipeline may have on the tribe’s treaty rights. Yet, during the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency, he signed an executive order to expedite construction of the pipeline. Construction of the 1,200-mile pipeline was completed in June 2017.

Not long after, the tribe challenged the permits and won. The Army corps of engineers were ordered to redo its environmental analysis, but they did so without taking into consideration tribal concerns or expert analysis. This was likely to allow it’s the transport of oil to continue until they were again sued.

Finally, as this Wednesday, federal judge James Boasberg determined that the environmental analysis by both the companies behind the pipeline and the corps was severely lacking, and the track record of Sunoco when it comes to oil spills is not promising, and “does not inspire confidence”, he added.

The fresh court-mandated EIS will be more in-depth than the assessment already completed by the corps – and could take years to complete. Next, the court will decide if the pipeline will be shut down while the EIS is being completed and until the EIS is approved.

“This validates everything the tribe has been saying all along about the risk of oil spills to the people of Standing Rock,” said Jan Hasselman, an EarthJustice attorney.

The Takeaway

The news of this Standing Rock victory may fall on distracted ears and minds at the moment considering the current global focus on the Coronavirus pandemic, but this is a big victory that shows the power of collective action and moving to stand up to actions of those who do not make the entirety of human ‘thrivability’ a part of their paradigm, but who instead operate from a space of disconnection and capitalization.

This news comes as I recently released my latest film Regenerate to everyone for free. The film re-examines our current mainstream approach to climate change and instead looks at our relationship to land, life, nature, money and each other as a whole. I propose that it is here where we will find the solutions we are looking for to truly allow our environment and each other, to thrive.

Some New York Hospitals Are Now Treating Coronavirus With High Dose Vitamin C

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple media outlets are reporting that some hospitals are using intravenous vitamin C to help treat patients with the new coronavirus.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is mainstream media not touching upon the idea that vitamin C may help patients? If it wasn't true, why would China be doing clinical trials to investigate? Should there not be more discussion around this?

Good news, reports indicate that a hospital in the US has finally begun using Vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients, and it looks like it’s working quite well. We were first turned on to vitamin C and the idea that it may help protect against this new coronavirus last month, when the US National Library of Medicine posted the information about their clinical trials on their website. The title of one of the trials is “Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia.” The sponsor is ZhiYong Peng, and the responsible party is Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan University (ZNWU).

We came across some mainstream media outlets claiming that  Vitamin C is extremely unlikely to help people fight off the new coronavirus. Like this one from  LiveScienceThey wrote it before becoming aware of the clinical trials taking place, and then updated their article to include that information. We felt it was important to continue covering this emerging story as it was inspiring and mainstream media was avoiding it and even misleading people.

That being said, it’s still quite clear via mainstream media that according to experts, there is no evidence that vitamin C does anything to help people with, or prevent the new coronavirus.

What we felt was important to reflect on was, if it’s true that vitamin C is extremely unlikely to help, why would critical resources be used at this time to start multiple clinical trials in China? Furthermore, why would we be getting updates from people like Dr. Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, a US board-certified specialist, stating that so far, they’ve seen a great deal of success with regards to treating coronavirus patients with intravenous vitamin C? According to Cheng, 50 moderate to severe cases of COVID-19 infection were treated with high-dose IVC. Dosing of IVC ranged from 10,000 – 20,000 mg a day for 7-10 days, with 10,000 mg for moderate cases and 20,000 for more severe cases. The first bit of good news was that all patients who received IVC improved and there has been no mortality. Secondly, as compared to the average of a 30-day hospital stay for all COVID-19 patients, those patients who received high dose IVC had a hospital stay of about 3-5 days shorter than the other patients.

In one particularly severe case where the patient was deteriorating rapidly, an extra dose of 50,000 mg IVC was given over a period of 4 hours and it caused the patient’s pulmonary (oxygenation index) status to stabilize and improve as the critical care team observed in real time. You can watch all of the updates from Cheng via his YouTube Channel.

New York Hospitals Using Vitamin C?

According to a recent article by the New York Post,

Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C — based on promising reports that it’s helped people in hard-hit China, The Post has learned. Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C. Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then readministered three or four times a day, he said. Each dose is more than 16 times the National Institutes of Health’s daily recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C, which is just 90 milligrams for adult men and 75 milligrams for adult women. The regimen is based on experimental treatments administered to people with the coronavirus in Shanghai, China, Weber said.

As you can see, word is getting around. Dr. Weber told the post that vitamin C is helping a “tremendous amount.” The post also claims that multiple hospitals on Manhattan’s Upper East side are using Vitamin C as a coronavirus treatment throughout the system, but the protocols differ from patients to patient. Apparently, vitamin C is being used to treat hundreds of patients.

The post also mentions the Vitamin C clinical trial listed above: Weber, 34, said vitamin C levels in coronavirus patients drop dramatically when they suffer sepsis, an inflammatory response that occurs when their bodies overreact to the infection. “It makes all the sense in the world to try and maintain this level of vitamin C,” he said. A clinical trial on the effectiveness of intravenous vitamin C on coronavirus patients began Feb. 14 at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the pandemic.

Apparently vitamin C is just one of many treatments given to patients, they also receive an anti-malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine, antibiotic azithromycin, and several biologics and blood thinners to help combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Why Haven’t We Heard More About This?

In North America, and around the globe for that matter, we only hear about pharmaceutical great treatment and potentials. This really highlights where government allegiance lies. The mainstream media isn’t really touching the topic of vitamin C at all, and the fact that they receive funding from governments and the corporations who influence them, it makes one ponder. Consider the fact that the majority of news stations in the US are funded largely by pharmaceutical advertisements, and the picture begins to become clear.

Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science.  (source)

It’s a fascinating world we live in, but despite the censorship of information and the attempted takedown of independent media sites, information is still getting out there, and people are still searching for it. At the end of the day, I choose to take my health into my own hands. Personally, I have no trust for our federal health regulatory agencies and I believe one is capable of self educating when it comes to help. But just as with anything else, ‘they’ want us to be reliant on the corporation.

For anyone looking for a high-quality vitamin C, we have been using and recommending liposomal vitamin C. There are many brands out there. We are using this one from PuraThrive as it is very high quality and has an incredible clinically proven absorption rate.

We’ve written about/shared our thoughts on this issue quite a bit. If you’re interested in reading some of our articles on the topic, a few of them are listed below:
