Crystal Cave. Crystal Clear. The Cave filled in.

Our World Legends say Crystal Power is… no Myth. Our Wrist-watches rely on this LIL’ Power-pack device of Nature. Tis the same for Inner Earth Cave systems… no Myth therein as well. Tunneling Technology and Mining have oft revealed wondrous and natural creations within Our Earth. Herein also. The Legends of Yore, Science and Tech combine… to create… Crystal Clear. One such Cavern system is about to be covered up… and filled in. See it before Time and the Excavators… stop… soonish… maybe.

Big Ben… The Clock Tower… Westminster… London,.. England.

 

Pulsing Power through Quartz Crystal… powers some of Our many Time-pieces.

Hence the nomen… Quartz Watch.

 

Though also… not the One named as Big Ben.

Besides being lil’ large for most wrists.

 

Our World Legends of this Natural Gem and Mineral Wonder are now revealing a;..

Crystal Cave.

Crystal Clear.

The Cave filled in…

…is another Saga being played out.

Inside Our Earth.

 

Unlike Big Ben… which is outside.

 

Also btw… Which at the moment… and for a while…

will only play the sounds of silence.

 

Though… not like the version above indeed,..

in deed and in fact… too.

 

Big Ben… Telling Time on St. Stephen’s Tower since MAY 31 of 1859… Survived the Bombing of WW2… is kept accurate by a pile of coins on the Pendulum ‘Cept now… tis… off-line. Also tells when Parliament is… online sitting per se by the light above… being on as well.

 

Big Ben is undergoing renovations and repairs.

Maintenance and more it seems.

Part of a four year process of work involved therein.

 

The silent treatment… therein it seems.

 

Cutting Crystal Clear.

 

In the hands of Marcel Vogel a Quartz Gem would reveal it’s inner nature… and workings.

 

Whilst at the employ of such as IBM and elsewhere.

At the… cutting edge of this Science indeed,..

in deed and in fact… as well.

 

The Vogel Cut named in his Honor and Memory brings Crystal Power to the fore.

By adding extra angular facets to the natural therein already.

 

A Quartz Type… Shiro gifted from Nature. 6 Sides or Facets the norm therein. photocredit/thanks:1968tanja

 

VOGEL CUT CRYSTAL…Many Facets therein. Power-up. photocredit/thanks:pinterest

Many Inventions and Patents held by this Research Scientist.

Within such as Magnetic Recording Media, Optical Electronics, Rare Earth Phosphor Luminescents, Black Light and Liquid Crystals.

Computer Hard Disc Drives for example,.. still take advantage of his Magnetic Coating.

Our World Legends still tell the Tale of his youth.

 

Of how his interest in these fields was… sparked…

by a Fire-fly.

The Light it emits.

 

Luminescence.

 

By age 12… Marcel had chemically created a matching compound.

3-amino-phthalaz-1-4 dione,.. with potassium ferro-cyanide and hydrogen peroxide.

Just add Water.

Luminescence.

 

His later work and studies with liquid crystals delineated the ability or capacity of Natural Quartz Crystal to store, amplify and then transmit power or information. Raw Crystals vary with size, locale and so forth of this field strength. The power or information able to be passed on is also dependent on such.

Science Legends detail how Quartz is essentially Hot as Silicon Dioxide Vapor that cools and solidifies.

Layer on/upon Layer.

A generalised Pictorial above.

 

Similar to the growth of a Pearl… The Crystal grows.

 

 

 

Crystalline Caverns Within.

The History and Herstory of Mining goes long with Our World Legends.

Multiple necessities within Societal Life.

Outback Living also.

 

Inner Earth… Naica,.. Mexico.

Near the Township of Delicias.

 

The Year 2000.

Miners found more than their Target digging this Hole.

The Largest Crystals… ever seen.

 

Taken… long to grow indeed,.. in deed and in fact also.

The Crystals are that GIANT sized.

Inside Our Earth.

 

Try putting them on your mantle… or key chain.!.

 

 

Some 300 mtrs. below Our Earth’s surface Tons of Crystals grow.

In extreme conditions of Temp. and Humidity.

 

The Industrias Peñoles Mine above and around collects mainly Silver, Lead and Zinc.

Lying on a Natural Fault-Line with ready access to magma and water.

Mineral rich and saturated water… that is.

 

Ideal for Crystal… growth…

even these GIANT sized specimens.

 

Mining Operations had drained enough of the surrounding water to allow the site to be revealed.

Another of Our World Legends… tis known.

GIANT Gems. Indeed.

Power of the Press…

Clear as.

 

In addition to the applications of Vogel and Tech;..

Crystal Power can be… A Pressing Power phenomenon.

Power of the Press.

Pressure that is.

 

Typically termed Piezo Power or Piezo Pressure.

 

Piezo Electricity explained. photocredit/thanks:docplayerru

 

(Video Link)

 

Power Transfer is induced by basically ” bending/squeezing ”  the Crystal.

This mechanical action allows a charge to freely flow.

Slightly distorting the Crystal upsets it’s balance per se and by allowing Power to play across it…

hopefully return thus to normality.

Power of the Press.

 

By altering the vibrations of the distortion squeeze:..

the Power can be… altered to suit.

Even to tell time… to keep on ticking that is.

 

Quartz… Powered-Up.

Wrist-watch sized… perhaps.?.

 

Even Larger may You ask well.?.

A Mountain Full of…

Piezo… Capped off.!?

Tis… Legendary and a reality of Yore.?.

 

Perhaps indeed.

 

In Times and Places of Yore… The Great Pyramid was capped… Bright White so Our World Legends do say. photocredit/thanks:thepinsta

 

Pyramid Power has long been… overlooked.

From the PoV of i, Shiro’s understanding…

 

Piezo Pressure is… Pressing Power.

Do not the Tons and Tons of Pyramid Stones… Press.?.

Do not the Tons and Tons of Pyramid Stones… contain Quartzite.?.

Do not the Legends say the Pyramid… lit up… on the…

top up.?. Cap that is.

 

Which was a GEM or CRYSTAL.?.

 

(Music Link)

 

Pyramid Power then seems to be… Piezo Electricity.

Pressed in by Gravity itself.

A Mountain sized… Crystal IN Stone.

 

A Pyramid… of Naturally Pressed Power.

 

On the Inside… photocredit/thanks:quotesgram

Pumping up…

the Power Pyramid.

So these Legends say.

To me… anyways… also.

 

A PUMP like device… neatly and finely suits it’s internals…

as well.

Fire within… PYR(e)AMID(st).

 

Power-Up indeed,.. in deed and in fact too.

Keep that OL’ and Eternal Flame…

turning and burning. Power-UP.

 

Pyramid Power… Pump it Up Pharaoh Please.

 

Reflecting Our World Legends… What the Pyramid Inners… can do. gifcredit/thanks:nexusilluminatiblogspot

 

Dig a Hole… Fill a Hole…

Clear.?.

Fill it up… Crystal Clear…

…Water that is indeed.

 

These Giant Gem Structures within Our Earth may well support the Surface Crust above. Though not as Hard as the Diamond Planet found within our Science Legends;.. they may well too…

litter the Inner Earth wherever such Fault-lines and Forces meet.

Crystalline nevertheless.

 

Upon such, may well Our Continents… drift.

 

(Video Link)

 

Mining oft requires the Site refilling process.

The Crystal Caverns of Naica…

may not be exempted from this process and proceedings.

 

However,..

the Mining Co. need no shovels therein.

Nor Excavators and Dump Trucks.

 

When Mining Ops cease… the Miners Pumps

do too. Powered… down and off.

 

In time after that… refill will be simply a matter of…

fulfilling itself.

Water will naturally flow back in.

 

Covering up… Giant Natural Gem Wonders…

thus and… within. For the Years to come.

 

 

Tbh… there appears no official indication of when Mining is expected to end.

For now… the Pumps run.

Crystals Clear and… dry as well.

 

Still… a must see… soon.

 

The Mining and Finance Sectors can be fickle indeed.

Profit over People and All that.

 

Their love of Crashes too,..

mentioned in several of Our World Legends.

 

Time… on and in your Hands. Herein. Our World Legends. Many Hands.

A Final Cut Dig.

 

For some of us at least.

Those who amongst us still wear proudly on their sleeve…

well… wrist actually.

The Quartz Powered Timepiece.

The Watch.

 

Without… Crystal Power.

Time in that World… stops.

 

So… Our World Legends do say.

 

 

Till next…

 

Plankton’s Plastic Soup. Modern Recipe… for a Titanic Disaster.?.

Whilst not strictly Islands,.. YET. Our Garbage and Refuse, mainly PLASTICS… piles up indeed. The nature and direction of Oceanic Currents piles Plastics into… a Titanic pile of water-logged Plastic Soup. Maritime Feeders partake this concoction of our… crappy stuff. Our Sciences scream the Disaster and folly of this… as our Bodies are not… Plastic that is. Nor theirs. Plankton and Plastic… not a good mix indeed it seems. Our World Legends. Bonus Slide-Show and Disaster Music… too. Herein.

 

The Eye of a Storm is still… and somewhat calm…

too.

So these Legends… say.

Herein.

 

(Music Link)

 

Where and when Oceans meet… tis similar it seems.

Whilst without and all around massive Natural Forces play out,..

…and amongst each other… too;..

 

Somewhat energetically… and seemingly chaotically…

…a Soup is made.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup.

Modern Recipe…

…for a Titanic Disaster.?.

…that seems to lurk beneath these waves…

…of our junk.

 

 

PLASTICS… in the main therein.

 

Garbage.

Ours…

 

(…And… NOT THE BAND… either and btw…

which is not… GARBAGE… but is,..

…just called that… that is.)

 

 

GARBAGE… NOT THE BAND.

 

SOUP’s up… and down…

…all around…too.

Sailing Craft and even Maritime Expeditions and Explorations oft followed the Winds.

Hence the term… Trade Winds for example.

 

Ocean Currents are of a similar Nature.

5 Main Meeting Points.

Sub-Tropical.

5 Gyres.

 

5 Large Serves… of Plastic Soup.

Our throw-aways… supposedly convenient.

 

Several more… on the make… too.

Oceans and Waterways have long been used as a dump.

 

Much of our Litter will degrade away… eventually.

Through the various actions of the Sun, Climate, Waters, Time and etc.

Tis also helped along by various species which may be specialised eaters.

 

 

Plastic’s degradation is basically Plastic which becomes smaller pieced.

Nor is it an vital element or natural molecule substance… either.

 

No known Life-form… has however eaten Plastic per se…

…till now in times Modern.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

The Living Organism… We Call… Phytoplankton. A Pic… magnified much.

 

(Music Link)

 

Plastic… ALL over the World.

 

The Plastics itself too… are just a part of the issue.

ALL Plastics contain Chemicals of some nature.

Not necessarily natural per se.

 

These Chemicals are leached out over actions and time.

Into the Food Chain.

 

Bottom up…

…to us… and beyond indeed.

 

(Video Link)

 

Plastics and Chemicals cause changes even to such simpler Life-forms as Plankton.

Which many Fish… consume.

 

Behavioural and reproductive changes… also.

Biological Barrier Boundaries… are no longer.

 

Many Chemical Reaction Studies and Reports from a variety of the Sciences include and show:..

…an increased risk for Heart/Cardiovascular disease, Cancers including Breast and Prostate, Reproductive dysfunction effects, Metabolic dysfunction, Diabetes, Miscarriages, Neurological and Behavioral disorders… more… too.

 

The growing health risks of plastic are significantly amplified in…

… our growing children,..

…whose immune and organ systems are still in development…

 

…still… growing.

 

Chemical Concoctions… Consumed.

 

The Processing and Manufacture of Plastic;..

…as well as its eventual throw-away and subsequent destruction by such as incineration or dumping,..

…pollutes our Air, Land and Waters.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

Exposes ALL associated Life-forms to Toxic Chemicals,..

…including Carcinogens to varying degrees.

 

The evidence of Health Risks associated with Plastics is…

…growing indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

 

Many of Science now get into… the Deep Blue.

The recognition of damage… too readily skimming on the surface.

 

People over Profit… much more profitable… to some.

 

Such recognition… inspires change.

Perhaps… a chance to grow.

 

We can Dream… and still do.

PLANKTON’s…

…Partaking of Plastic Soup.

Crap.

 

A Global Survey which linked Data from around the world Estimates:

275 Million Tons of Plastic Waste.

 

5-13 Million Tons into our Oceans.

 

Life relies on the Food Chain.

Science has delineated 9 such Global Systems of Life Support.

We are not alone… nor are we… convenient.

 

Our actions… matter… in the end.

 

We eat and drink… Life-forms.

Other Species do similar.

JUST A DROP…

 

Whilst contemplating research into Blindness and the applicable Martial Arts Training Methods (…=click=…) that NINPO Students can utilise,..

…the idea of Life in Darkness was brought to… light.

Our Deep Blue Seas and Oceans atypical (click).

 

Though comprising some 60+% of our Earth’s Living Spaces the Sunlight cannot illuminate such depths.

Light dims dramatically after some 200 mtrs and is gone by 600.

Conditions of Pressure, Temperature and Sustenance vary greatly there (click).

 

Hazards to Life indeed it seems.

The vast majority of the Marine Life is in the upper zone… the photic…

…where the Light is… too.

Light and accompanying food sources control the distribution of said Life.

 

The Marine Creatures that live and foray in the deepest reaches have and present remarkable features (click).

Illuminescence, reduced Mass and peculiar body structures, slow growth and metabolism, long feelers, teeth, jaw and so on (click).

Long Lived… too it seems.

 

Very large sized Predators are practically non-existent.

The Food-chain here will not support such.

 

Reproduction an issue… too.

Suitable mates are oft… unseen in such waters.

Stay Outside and Train With Nature.

The Modern Lifestyle oft leads one indoors… even unto the DOJO. The Martial Artists of yore tended to find the outdoors more amenable. TRAIN OUTDOORS the theme herein. Nature can heal, inspire and nourish in many subtle ways. SEEK AND SEARCH WITH Shiro. The Outdoors. The Benefits. Our World LEGENDs. Background Music… too. photocredit/thanks:pixnio

 

THE WAY OF THE SWORD… EVENING STYLE. gifcredit/thanks:youtube/gfycat

 

My hair grew long, unkempt and somewhat knotted.

I smelt pungently… fresh.

I,.. Shiro… did not notice nor care.

I… also felt good.

Connected somehow.

 

The Cave that was my then HOME,.. had no mirror and i studiously avoided looking into the watery reflection when at the Lake/Large Pond… where i quenched.

Au Natural indeed.

 

(Music Link)

 

STAY OUTSIDE

AND TRAIN WITH NATURE.

 

Thus Our World LEGENDS of yore oft hinted with Tales of Heroes and Heroines battling through Mountains, Desert or Plains. Nature was all around and keenly felt and widely written about as background to such usually encouraging Moral Messages and Inspiration (click).

For those that studied the MARTIAL WAYS too… outside… was more natural.

 

I felt good… inside… tho’ looked bad… outside.?.

Two moderately traumatic Bike v Car accidents within a short time… before healing the first had passed.

…well… inside a Cave really.

 

Over time wounds slowly healed.

My personal Training was lots of Trail Walking, a lil’ Mount Climbing.

In the morns i stretched using SAN SHIN and KIHON HAPPO (to do…click-avail soon) as the base for some slow Tai-chi like actions… i came to Term these… Nin-Chi btw.

Sunlight, Moonlight, Fresh Air + Water + Food (click).

In the day, Greens and Browns colored my World with a lid of Sky-Blue and Our Sun beaming (click).

When night, the inky Purple-Blues hue lit the way… ‘cept when Moon was aglow.

 

Our SUN… Shiro nick-name = RA…

 

OUR SUN,.. with a nod to the ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANCESTORS… was named… RA… (…WHICH ALSO HAPPENS TO BE… Shiro’s Birth initials…= Roberti Amodeo…a Male… so too the Sun…click);

…whilst the MOON,.. with a nod to the OLDEN GREEK ANCESTORS… became named (click),..

 

…the wondrously elusive… and oft cloaked,.. Goddess SELENE.

 

(Music Link)

 

From Training in Japan, Adelaide and with the Tenets/Concepts of NINPO,.. ensured the night was known.

 

My first two forays with the Shinobi of the Bujinkan in Japan into the night to train,.. are typical of Nature AND Moonlight adaptations and uses within Martial Traditions that still honor this aspect.

(…though not sure how the ” The Community ” per se would have felt.!?…)

…From the Dojo proper we were gathered and told to keep SILENT AS CAN… and led to… GREENERY.?.

 

 

Both sites were close though i had not seen or noticed them on my way to the Dojo… we walked a lil’… then,.. they were there… wherever that was really.

The first was a Golf Course or Park Corner type area… with many terrain mounds ups n downs etc… which we made use of etc. Shadow Work/Walking WAYS emphasised. By that i mean we had to keep and stay silently within Nature’s Shadows…E.G.,.. NOT MAKE OUR OWN… whilst moving to where indicated.

Tis tricky at times.

 

SHADOW SHINOBI INDEED… CLICK AWAY TO SEE Shiro… CRYSTAL CLEAR VIEWS. THE SLIDE-SHOW. THE LEGENDS. THE CRYSTALS. INTEL and more. Shiro style herein. gifcredit/thanks:ficismesk

 

Worked also on spotting others… trying to do same Shadow concealing. At night,.. after your eyes adjust (…= app.27mins for MALE/NINJA…= app.18 MINS for MALE/NINJA with long hair and approx. 9 mins for FEMALE/KUNOICHI…).

So the LEGENDS say.

 

Silent Walking was the Training Concept and Eye adjustment helped much in avoiding things that go crackle and snap… and pop too (click).

The session ended with muted as possible… Unarmed surprise take-downs + Weapon steals v Stick wielding Opponent… on uneven lil’ slippery and rocky ground.

 

At night’s end… The Moon Light revealed,.. several bruises on the way.

I felt good.

 

 

The second Greenery… was easier to figure out.

Tabi’s… soaked. First step. Squelching every step, then on.

 

RICE PADDY.

 

SPEAR WORK IN THE NATURE OF AGRICULTURE… ANOTHER LEGENDARY SPEARMAN WAS HATTORI HANZO… THE REMAINS OF HIS LONG LONG SPEAR… HEREIN. THE SLIDESHOW. INTEL AND MORE. A STICK… WITH A POINT INDEED. Shiro STYLE IT SEEMS.

 

At least noise not an issue.

SPEAR WORK.

 

Long sweeping movements… with room to move here.

Sensei’s picked a good spot… away from the Main sown crops to where a pool had gathered still and only sparsely covered with the young rice plants.

A 2-3 inch deep mini-Lake/Pond area.

 

Nevertheless;..

Tabi’s soaked. First step.

 

 

The Spear though, helped release pent up inner energies too. Required some oomph and focus. Moderately heavy weapon made more complex by the moving and sinking ground under… which required constant/auto Body positional adjustments for targeting offensive and/or defensive.

The Water eventually too made the clothes heavier and damp… though an upside here… you could easy flick water too as a distraction or defense. Movements overall though were hindered immediately per se. Feet heavy with wet… real soon etc. ALL Placement was oft critical… as the muddy underground meant some slippery sliding too per se.

This slippery sliding too had to be accounted for with hand-grip soon enough as well,.. requiring a mode of auto adjust essential.

 

Such uses of NATURE all but impossible within a Dojo proper…

(…Swimming pool perhaps.?.).

 

I mean we had open spaces, sky, clouds, stars, wind, water… LIFE.

A big pointy Stick… too.

 

A SOKE… who says ” …Go… Play…” … (click);.. so we did.

Current technology allows the LONG-TERM storing of HERBS, SPICES, VITAMINS + MINERALS,.. MEDICINES too.

These are some of the CONDIMENTS of concern herein indeed.

 

The CONDIMENTS in Shiro’s CUPBOARD are those more specifically… that are

NOT VERY SPECIFIC… at all.

 

These are more in line, and intended indeed,.. and in fact too…

for the lil’ emergencies, accidents, actions and incidents of concern-

-that happen in and around… YOU.

 

HANDY too… for the many unusual times you just run out of.?.

  • APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

 

Apple Cider Vinegar (…hereinafter aka = ACV…)…

is made from Nature’s Apples.

 

Not the LEGENDARY or MYTHOLOGICAL it seems,..

the ones on a FRUIT TREE… which is a TRANSPIRER in-action actually (click).

 

ONE A DAY,.. KUNOICHI… TIS WHAT THE LEGENDS SAY INDEED IT SEEMS.

 

ACV is one of those mysterious substances,that is acidic yet produces an alkaline reaction indeed. This btw is good for us, as such states are productive against many negative body state producing effects such as Cancer, Tumors and so on.

Multi-purpose ranging from foodstuff/salad dressing through to cleanser too (click).

Shiro oft puts a splash in the water intake… esp.  in the morn. The health benefits are long-term, as with most, if not all the TOP 9 herein… and the other TOP 9 listing G–Z… therein (click) …avail soon.

Regular usage much more important than a big dose. ACV Contains varying amounts of many trace minerals and vitamins and other such nutritious… nutrients (click).

 

 

APPLES in the LEGENDS are many indeed.

LONG-LIFE, LOVE, POISON and more. (click) (click) (click).

 

Shiro notes here though… The APPLE oft used to ” represent ” a/the particular assets within the LEGEND… though tis not the ACTUAL OBJECT it seems. Just a ” appropriate term “… or nick-name per se.

Local terms and names for a REAL OBJECT may have been long lost…

or misunderstood.

 

 

VINEGAR is basically… sour alcohol… in theory. A substance with a long and varied history within many Cultures. Technical uses include foodstuff, medicine, preservative and corrosive actions (click).

The LEGENDARY ALCHEMISTS, for example,.. used VINEGAR to obtain a lead acetate from that metal.

Not so Legendary perhaps…

 

was the idea to then add this LEADen substance to liquids as a sweetener.

A quite non-LEAD-free Sweet Poison for peeps partaking indeed, it seems,.. was the result therein.

Alcohols used are primarily: Wine, Beer and Rice types.

Certain distilled VINEGARS can be sourced… even from such vegetable matter as from WOOD.

The Japanese version termed MOKUSAKU (click).
Suitable types include Oak, Beech and Ash WOOD it appears (click).

 

As with many OIL types, Herbs and Spices can be added to the mix,.. usually at later stages. These can add such as aroma, flavor, color or a particular ingredient property to the final product.

 

 

The LEGENDS indicate too;

the ominous omni presence of various PARLIAMENTS and so forth recognising VINEGAR’s wide-spread use as a TRADE COMMODITY,.. worthy of… recognition…

 

and regulation and taxes thereof…of course it seems.

Sour ACTS,.. those perhaps indeed.

  • BAKING SODA

 

Another all-star in this parade, is the effervescent and evanescent;

(… though not EVANESCENCE… (click) here for those LEGENDS indeed it seems and in fact too.)

 

Kitchen fav.,..

BAKING SODA (…hereinafter aka = SODA…).

 

A major positive, as above,..is the alkaline producing state…

the change of our system’s PH,..

which Cancer Cells… love… to hate it seems indeed (click).

Knocks em round, down… and dead indeed and in fact too (click).

Shiro tips some SODA in coffees, chocolate drinks, water intake,..

and lots more when the food holding area is…

grumbling along too.

 

ALL ROUND POWDERY GOODNESS… IN INDEED.

 

Sounds of acidic silence broken by balanced burps of constipated contentment indeed.

SODA is one of the cheapest yet most versatile and toxic-free substances… every household should utilise. Countless uses appear during online searches etc, covering many many facets of our lives… and livelihoods too (click).

 

BEWARE… THIS BREAD… BE RISEN INDEED IT SEEMS… SO SAYS… SODA… Shiro too.

 

Found naturally in CRYSTALLINE FORM, to which we simply and finely, GRIND and GRIND…

till it’s nought but powdery… powder (click).

Combined with an acidic substance and/or heat it will bubble up carbon dioxide,.. thus inflating. So good with rising bread tis indeed. Stable as a powder… till moistened apparently…

then gets up to… all sorts of good stuff it seems.

 

Also has odor absorption capabilities and so forth.

An all round sweet smelling good guy tis SODA,.. seems almost LEGENDARY here.

 

BORON IT SEEMS INDEED AND IN FACT.

 NO. 3

  • BORON

 

An oft forgot trace MINERAL ELEMENT, that has very positive long-term benefits for health and our immune system (click). Cancer Cells treat this with disdain… then death to that as well (click). Benefits to bone density, hormone balancing, diabetes and high cholesterol issues too.

Due to an all round goodness…

 

THOUGH BE VERY AWARE… HIGH DOSES ARE A NO-NO-NO ETC ETC.

GOT IT.?.

 

NO HIGH DOSES… EVER EVER EVER and so forth and so on…

a very lil’… is the best thing here indeed (click).

 

Use sparingly and regular… very small trace doses, only please.

 

 

 

BORON is technically a metalloid, which is a substance with both metallic and non-metallic properties. Situated next door to CARBON on the Periodic Table of SCIENCE.

The oldest known EARTH rocks contain boron (click).

Boron, in our bodies,.. is also utilised to stabilise the very important RNA Ribose (click).

 

When in it’s CRYSTALLINE state… second hardest element ( behind carbon/diamond).

 

 

CASTOR SEEDS… CRUSHED… = CASTOR OIL.

 NO. 4

  • CASTOR OIL

 

 

CASTOR OIL is another all-round health provider (click).

Trace minerals and vitamins galore that all dis-eases… love to hate.

 

Large amounts of VIT E… a natural healer.

Anti-bacterial/infective/viral/fungal to boot.

 

However,.. SCIENCE has found this good oils… underbelly indeed (click).

A toxin and nerve chemical has been isolated from this bean whilst in a un-natural state… which is not how we use it anyway.

However, again,..

low reg. doses… the go.

 

 

The naturally non-weaponised CASTOR OIL… has been found effective with such as constipation, gastro, arthritis, skin infections too (click) and many other lil’ issues indeed.

Castor oil’s plant name btw is derived from the name of the substance it replaced…

castoreum…

 

which, in turn is derived from… Beaver glands it seems (click).

 

THIS TREE BE… BEAVERED BE INDEED IT SEEMS.

 

Another of the TOP 9 that has a myriad of uses.

Soaps, lubes, dyes, plastics, perfumes and more (click).

Can safely be used topically also.

 

All of the major civilisations made use of such… in some form (click).

Historically and naturally,.. cold-pressed oil extracted from the seeds.

 

Castor encourages blood-flow circulation to affected areas,..

and then draws out and aids toxin removal too. This oil is somewhat unique in that it has the highest triglyceride-good-fats concentrations and combinations.

Goody Fatty maybe,.. health heavy-weight indeed it seems.

A good oil… the natural non-weaponised version,.. yes please.

 

OLDEN OIL PRESS.

 

 

 NO. 5

  • CHARCOAL

Burnt woody material… this be…

and it be all good too… lil’ doses indeed.

 

Another cleanser in this TOP 9 (click).

POISON ANTIDOTE, anti-flatulence and food holding areas issues and various particular blood and diet problems (click). Has also been noted as a mold toxin whilst also providing support to the adrenals, kidneys and liver (click).

Burnt well indeed it seems.

 

 

CRUSHED CHARCOAL.

As with the earlier…ACV…

using different WOODs in the manufacturing process…

manufactures… a different product.

 

CHARCOAL is best derived from similar harder woods such as Oak, Beech, Ash and so forth.

The processing drives out all the moisture, reducing weight by some 80%+ (click).

 

Tars and pitch could also be extracted without too much extra processing,..

being condensed from the smoky cloud of char.

 

Our World Legends… CENTRALIA BURNS.?. CLICK PHOTO TO SEE WITH Shiro… HOW WE SET THIS TOWN ON FIRE.

 

Modern Medicine uses CHARCOAL in a variety of methods and treatments (click). Even by the early 1900’s,.. CHARCOAL had been found to be a proper asset to the MEDICINAL ARSENAL/CABINET (click).

For example; The Medical Journal:

 

KINGS AMERICAN DISPENSATORY had this much to say… and more indeed.

Carbo ligni (wood charcoal), It acts as an absorbent (both fluids and gases) and disinfectant. Its internal employment will be found useful in those digestive derangements which are associated with offensive breath and disagreeable belchings; also to correct the fetid condition of the stools in dysentery. It is also useful in acidity of the stomach, flatulency [gas], and in the nausea and constipation attending pregnancy.
It is also very useful in internal heat and irritation of the stomach, with acidity; sick headache; diarrhoea; cholera infantum, etc. In cases of sick headache, due to gastric acidity or derangement, and which are ushered in with blurred vision, photopsia, and finally nausea and intense headache, I have found a drachm [dram] of charcoal mixed in a little syrup, to which is then added about a gill of water, and ten or twelve drops of ether, to afford prompt relief;
in very obstinate cases, the dose may require to be repeated two or three times, every twenty or thirty minutes.

In some cases charcoal may be advantageously combined with the subnitrate of bismuth as a sedative; and where a laxative action is required, rhubarb may be beneficially added to it. Bilious colic is said to have been cured by it, in doses of one drachma in two fluid ounces of burnt brandy, repeated as required.
 
Externally, it may be used in poultices to correct fetor of ulcers, arrest gangrene, etc., and is efficient in many cutaneous [skin] diseases. It absorbs foul gases generated in vaults, sewers, etc. It is also a useful haemostatic [agent to control bleeding], having arrested epitasis [nose bleeding] when subsulphate of iron had failed.”
CUPBOARD CONDIMENT…
and LEGEND in deed,.. indeed and in fact too.

 

 NO. 6

  • CHILLI

 

Chilli,.. though the name be alike a cold spell…

NOTHING IS OFT,.. all cool about this condiment indeed.

 

Shiro, being of part ITALIAN descent, is no stranger to the cool and fiery CHILLI.

A favourite combo of heat and sweet… as below.

 

 

NOW…

 

YES… a lil’ note here perhaps it seems;..

Both Chocolate and Chilli… besides starting with the same letter…

 

are ADDICTIVE… in the technical sense of the words therein.

Both stimulate pleasure endorphins… which… give pleasure to the partaker after the creamy chocs and not-so-chilly chilli… consumed.

 

Shiro sayeth… sound a bit like this thing we call LOVE.

 

KUNOICHI CHOC CHILLI INDEED.

Thankfully too,..

a chilli and choco combo… is also a pain-killer.

 

 

CHILLI contains many many Vitamins, Minerals, Anti-oxidants and trace elements (click).The quantity and proportions of such may vary quite considerably somewhat,.. this only be…

cos there be… some 400+ chilli,.. varieties.

 

Large range of shapes, sizes and colors and so on.

 

 

The inclusion herein however, is not solely due to it’s great all round spicy health benefits and chilled good looks. There are many indeed too… of the non-culinary chilli concoctions… (click).

that can be … concocted.

A quite useful bug/insect spray can be formulated with chilli added oomph and hottiness for example. With further scientific tweaking and weaponisation… we have a CHILLI SPRAY… as effective as the renowned SPRAY OF PEPPER.

Chinese police forces also promoted the chill chilli to great heights when realised this humble hottie helped hinder the tired and sleepy… (click) and started a Community Program to promote and hand out CHILLI to drivers as encouragement.

 

CHILLED CHINESE POLICE OFFICER Certainly CHILLS SLEEP…Knowing Our World Legends even of CHILLIS IN CHONGQING IT SEEMS. Tis… FIRE IN THE BELLY. THESE DRIVERS BE HOT… WIDE AWAKE TOO. photocredit/thanks:stringer shanghai reuters

 

Shiro thinks the drivers were kept awake…

just trying to figure how to put that mouth-on-fire feeling…

 

all out and to bed indeed.

 

Clever condiment cops of chongqing china.

 

SHINOBI SURVIVAL SECRET.

Shiro says too… ignore above pic…

and here’s an ol’ ninja survival tip revealed.

 

TAKE GOOD NOTE,.. of when such non-toxic substances cause interesting topical changes. The SHINOBI of yore would… and could use them to great effect… FOR THE EFFECT indeed.

In this case for example,

 

a substance such as CHILLI would be powdered and then rubbed into flesh under clothing (NOT THOSE TENDER BITS…AT ALL OK !!!… but…) in such as socks and gloves to produce LEGENDARY HEATING in the chilliest of times.

With some ingenuity… such reactionary things can also be used to produce tears, sweat and so forth… if ever needed.

 

Just don’t get your,.. socks and…

jocks mixed up.

 

Hot ars as indeed.

 

 

 

Though unfortunately unable to be eaten quite like ORANGES…

this not so chilly heat seeker and giver,..

has 7 times as much VIT C for example.

 

Minerals too,… such as iron, magnesium, manganese and potassium are all chilli contained. These are oft basic and essential components for such as the cell and body fluids as well as required for their inherent anti-viral/oxidative properties towards general good health.

 

A noted metabolism boost occurs during regular consumption.

Has found Medical uses in such treatments of; Lung Disease, Heart Attacks, Cancer, Anti-viral/bacterial/biotic properties, Pain killer and detoxicant (click).

 

 

 

Within the LEGENDS of CHILLI… is this gem indeed (click).

 

THE CHILLI, CHILLED OR NOT…

CURBS AND CONQUERS… CASH CRAVINGS of COWBOYS.

 

The noted shootist anti-hero JESSE JAMES… NEVER robbed a Bank in McKinney, Texas; usa…

for a chill chilling reason indeed.

 

There was…

no new sheriff in town… nor judge nor jail.

 

This town simply… and profitably,.. hosted his favourite CHILLI eatery it seems.

Jesse,.. simply refused… to gunrun his type of business there.

Kept… a blank… slate it appears-

and with no targets in town and around… all safe…

 

even the open,.. Safes… also.

 

THE CHILLI.

CHILL LEGEND in deed,.. indeed and in fact too.

 

BANKS IN McKINNEY TEXAS… WERE CHILL BOUT CASH SAFETY WHEN JESSE RODE INTO TOWN FOR HIS FIERY FEAST IT SEEMS.

 

The CHILLI plant is somewhat easily grown, indoors or out (click). The growing season can actually be extended by indoor placement. Most areas/regions will be able to produce fine specimens though tweaks to suit must be applied.

Pots are ok too,.. though soil replacement may need to occur more oft.

Suits perhaps,.. sub-tropical environ though adaptable too.

Related to such as the Tomato, though naturally it seems to,

prefer a hotter clime.

 

CHILLI. LEGEND indeed. Hot as.

  • COD LIVER OIL

 

A fish oil par excellence.

Very High levels of VITAMINS A + D as well as good levels of the Omega-3 Fatty Acids with other Vitamins such as E + K present also (click).

Many other trace Elements and Minerals found therein too, dependent on type and so forth.

 

Packed nutritionally with high concentration means…

ONLY LIL’ required on a regular basis.

 

KEEP IN MIND… OVERDOSING ON VITAMINS + co. CAN HAPPEN.

TOO MUCH… NOT ALWAYS A GOOD THING.

 

The World’s Northern Fishing Regions and Populace have been utilising such Oils for ages past. Eskimo, Scandinavian and the Ancient Romans too all valued it’s inherent health promoting properties.

The olden British even scraped the drums of livers clean indeed.

 

FISH… CALLED COD. THE NAME IS RATHER GENERIC… A TYPE … NOT SPECIES in PARTICULAR. ONE OF THE MOST COMMON-THE ATLANTIC COD WHOSE SCIENTIFIC NOMEN IS GADUS MORHUA.

 

OIL OF THE COD’s LIVER THEREIN IT SEEMS.

 

Vitamin uptake and/or replacement therapy obvious, other benefits have also been found in such as psoriasis and other skin issues, heart health, rheumatism and related types, measles, eye diseases and more.

Therapeutic uses are many due to the versatility/nature of oil itself.

 

When taken with /in foodstuffs blood sugar levels easily stabilise and also helps to avoid over-eating, by it’s stimulation of the feeling of fullness and satiety,.. as with most of the good fats.

Important to keep in mind..!?..

 

The Brain MUST HAVE SUCH FATS TO OPTIMISE (click).

MUST. FULLSTOP. GOT IT.?.

 

 

 

The anti-inflammatory actions and properties help boost neurological and cardio-vascular health (click).

Such actions in women for example, also aid the reproductive processes and hormonal stabilisation whilst aiding and promoting a lowering of pain levels especially with joints/bone pain and related issues.

Various oil components are vital too for wound healing.

Good oil therein indeed.

 

 

 NO. 8

  • DANDELION

Shiro found in the CONDIMENT CUPBOARD… not a pretty… flower per se…

tis only… a root…

 

of a pretty flower that is,.. indeed.

 

A stunning Yellow lil’ flower, oft treated ill,..

such as a pest, a weed.

TIS NOT… pesty or weedy at all, at all in fact.

 

SO THESE LEGENDS SAY… of this sun’s flower with power,

… with the LEGENDARY CAT ManeNAME.

 

 

What most term WEEDS… are just unknown oft wild based Plants.

The DANDELION is a SUNFLOWER ( genus: Asteraceae ) (click).

 

Such as the DANDELION for example, has the difficult and unenviable task of prepping the SOIL for the micro-culture to follow. The root stock it propagates is akin to a Carrot or Ginger type.

This enables deep soil placement,.. allowing for a bio-eco community to access and develop. This community of insect, worms and so on,.. then further transform and release the soil nutrients therein…

which the Plant can then use for future propagation…

 

which encourages more of such life etc etc… A CYCLE OF NATURE.

 

 

Inherent the DANDELION are high amounts of VITAMINS A, B, C + D.

The (dried) leaves and roots are generally used (click) though other parts utilised at times.

 

Further good amounts of MINERALS present also,.. including BORON (refer earlier), calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and so on. Various other plant parts also contain tannins, volatile oils, flavonoids and more.

 

Traditional uses include salad ingredient, various Bitters, Beers and Alcohols, stockpots, tonics and elixirs.

 

 

 

Within History,.. the Chinese, Arabic and Europeans all advocate use for quite a range of dis-eases. Blood cleanser and purifier, diabetes, Immune System enhancement/support, diuretics and purging, gall-bladder, liver and kidney support and all-round detoxicant and anti-bacterial agent.

 

Shiro’s root of the DANDELION in the CUPBOARD of CONDIMENTS though is mainly used for it’s flavor. Being a Cigar smoker… my taste buds… are smoked.

The preference is for a myriad of flavors esp. in regards to such as Herbal Teas which can be bland at times.

Whilst enjoying Coffee… there is the LIKELY PROBABILITY OF… ADDICTION and high doses can lead to Heart issues and others etc (click). SCIENCE has noted too that an excess of uncontrolled Brain neuron firing… and mis-firing oft occurs.

This leads to the classical… tired, after the event… so to speak.

 

 

Many CONSTANT COFFEE drugAddicts feel irritable, grumpy and discomfort… without their caffeine fix indeed.

 

Shiro prefers a herbal concoct using any/all of the following,..

which i mix up as per my want… so one is not overly used.

 

COFFEE, CINNAMON, NUTMEG, ALL-SPICE, CHOCOLATE, GREEN TEA, CHILLI POWDER… + THE DANDELION… powdered ROOT thereof.

When required… a sweetener: HONEY or MOLASSES… + small amount SODA.

 

Stir generously and vigorously.

DANDY… DANDELION INDEED.

 

 

Within the LEGENDS… THE DANDELION is quite profuse… and pretty… and very punctual indeed (click).

Almost like clockwork and following the journey of OUR SUN…

the flowers of THE LEGENDARY DANDELION…

react… respond.

 

Noted in the LEGENDS as one of NATURE’s innate time-keepers and weather fore-casters it seems indeed.

For;

… The Dandelion is called the rustic oracle; it’s flowers always open about 5 a.m. and shut at 8 p.m., serving the Shepherd for a clock…

vis ‘ The Child and Childhood in Folk-Thought ‘ by A.F.Chamberlain…

 

also this…

…The Dandelion is an excellent Barometer, one of the commonest and most reliable. It is when the blooms have seeded and are in the fluffy, feathery condition that it’s Weather Prophet facilities come to the fore. In fine weather the ball extends to the full, but when rain approaches, it shuts like an umbrella. If the Weather is inclined to be showery, it keeps shut all the time, only opening when the danger from the wet is past…

vis ‘ Camping for Boys ‘ by H.W.Gibson.

 

Herbal power-house, nutritious nutrients, soil adaptogen, time and weather barometer.

A FLOWER… WITH NATURE’s POWER WITHIN.

 

LEGEND… with the LEGENDARY CAT ManeNAME.

Many Cultures, peeps, places and times… took a bath it seems. Oft.

Animals too.

 

photocredit/thanks:wikimedia

 

Though particular effects may vary, dependent on MINERAL content…

the theory… remains the same (click).

 

The heat and warmth generated will relax, increase circulation and the particular properties of the contained MINERALs will be topically applied. Many of these type WATERS contain very high amounts of various mount SALTS, SULFURS and MAGNESIUMs which are basic body essentials and requirements for general good health.

 

Typical too is an abundance of Calcium and/or Sodium Bicarbonate…

=  the previously mentioned… SODA.

General arthritic, rheumatic, back and joint pain can all be alleviated with a water soak of MINERALs rich (click).

In turn, this may aid too,.. one’s sleeping patterns and rhythms and cycle on etc.

 

EPSOM SALTS is not like anodised table salt… AT ALL.

 

Tis a mix of,..

Magnesium, Oxygen and Sulfur.

A MINERALS MIX.

 

The water dissolves the mix… into ions release into the water.

The trio of EPSOM SALTS Minerals… are involved in many many body actions. Essential too for recovery and repair after hard training and exercise. A proclivity too,.. to reduce swelling and pain levels a bonus here (click). Tips include adding to massage oil and suchlike to enhance overall actions and effects. Rub generously into joints and feet or affected areas if suitable.

Exfoliant usage noted too,.. as well as possible uses with topical sunburn treatments which would deliver HIGH MINERAL content to the healing,.. hopefully soothed… red bits.

There are several variations in the market places which should suit most requirements…

SHIRO TAKES A CAUTIOUS PEEK INTO

 CRYSTAL BALL GAZING…

 The ART of SCRYING. 

 

WHAT DOES SHIRO SEE.?.

 

SCRYING using the CRYSTAL BALL is a long held Tradition, though other mediums such as Mirrors, Water/Oil Bowls and various Religious type icons have been utilised. (click)

Basically… gaze and await… visions. (click)

Tracking this Skill historically ensures most Societies would have to be included. Online Experts admit links to a variety of Religions and those Spiritually inclined. (click)

The LEGENDS include Ancient Persia and Egypt, the Celts, the Greeks,.. Nostradamus and so on.

 NO TRY…

 JUST SCRY SHE SAID.

Akin it seems to ‘ Meditating on an object ‘,..

become the ‘ observer/watcher ‘ .

The process involves NOT letting your imagination create images…

but rather, letting the images be created ON your imagination.

 

SIT… WAIT… LOOK… OBSERVE ONLY.

NO TRY… JUST SCRY.

 

JUST LOOK… NO THINK… NO THING… OBSERVE ONLY. WATCHER BE.

 SCRYING SHIRO 

 SEES…

PLEASE HOVER/READ PICS TO SEE…

WHAT SHIRO SAW.

 

A LIL WHILE IN… perhaps 15 mins… took several mins tho to get my position right… so shiro was not seeing shiro… per se. A circle or circular object appeared/arrived. I let the background ‘ fill in ‘ in order to try to get better definition… basically ignoring the circle… so wouldn’t focus on it and turn it into a face… or the moon etc.

 

No… did not then see a light-bulb… but did have the impression that there was a ‘ FLASH OF BLUE ‘ … quick indeed… the circle… (or me.?. ) then changed/morphed into another position… or shape… not sure which it was.?. but circle was now looking…

 

Basically cylindrical now… and the BLUE-NESS was darkening still… tho still, the whole scene was ‘misty/murky’ in that i had to stay focused i felt… or have the image fade away… had to squint meditatively i guess… but the image stayed… so on i saw…

 

… SO… in Shiro dived… swimming and scrying indeed. Time elapsed,… approx. 27mins. Njoy YOUR plunge into the luminal imaginal… CRYSTAL CLEAR. LEGEND,.. THAT IS. Take care… till next… shiro.
