Head To Head

At times it is very difficult to avoid sharing what some people search on when they surf into this site.

Take for example today's search string, "can people having telepathy in conversation "

The more pertinent question is, "Do you really want to hear someone else's voice in your head?"

I know that unless I am madly in Love with them, I don't; and, even then, I would think twice about how often I would forgive the intrusion.

Basically, for a large swathe of our society all you are going to find going on in their heads is, "what are we eating?" "where is the nearest restroom?" or "when do I get laid next?"; and not necessarily in that pecking order; oh, and let's not forget "did I just miss the off ramp?"

Good thing someOne put some colorful stones to good use nearly 2 decades ago to filter all that out, so we needn't be bothered with such minutiae.

And the laic may think there is little to no harm in listening in on someone else's private deliberations, but what they don't understand is that it's a holistic experience and unless you are willing to share their feelings (not just emotions, but sensations, too), best to keep such things out of reach of children.

Even a short-lived exposure to such an experience makes the most enured among us, that would be Me, want to blow their brains out on a daily basis.

So, I hope whomever was responsible for it would have just as much fun with it : (

As an afterthought, if the search string was actually a perjorative 'can people' having telephathic conversations, then that would explain why after they already killed us off, they no longer can see Us, especially this One Big Fat Momma.

Lost Art Of Conversation

One of my daughter's friends graced me with her company the other day during her lunch break. What I like about this girl is her absolute forthrightness, making for easy conversation since with her what you see is what you get and my mind didn't have to continually monitor each word and intonation to prevent any misunderstanding. As is, I am working with only half a brain and the memory of a gnat and would have hated to do or say anything to make her think her friend's mom is weird.

After a few bites of frozen pizza freshly out of the toaster oven, and the brief breaking the ice back-and-forth, she confided that she is having a great deal of difficulty making friends. She works and goes to school, she is personable, attractive and well-spoken, and yet despite the many people she meets in the course of her days, she hasn't made any new friends since she graduated high school 2 years ago. She wasn't complaining that she didn't have a love interest, because she does; she was telling me that there are no friendly women around. Astonished that she said this, I shared with her that my daughter was having the very same problem, and my daughter was finding that she can relate more readily with the foreign exchange students at her school than any American female. These girls are not social pariahs, so what gives?

My daughter's friend said she feels people have lost the fine art of verbal communication--and that American women in general are way too catty to other women because they seem to think only in terms of competition for men.

Well, I guess this would put the caboche on any effort to develop natural telepathy. What would be the point--to have people relay blips and bleeps to each other?

Twitter By Telepathy

CNNHealth.com reports Man Twitters Using Brainwaves in today’s article “Brain-Twitter project offers hope to paralyzed patients”. Adam Wilson, working at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, tweeted “Spelling With My Brain” on April 15, 2009.

Visitors to this blog might like to know they are in good company and that it may not be “all in their heads” as they might have been led to believe. In deference to this recent breakthrough I have compiled a thoughtful (by no means comprehensive) list of who else might be in on it.

Alta Bates Medical Center, Alabama A & M University, Berea College, Carillon Health Systems, City College of San Francisco, Daughters of Charity Health Systems, Florida Department of Health, Hughes, Humboldt State University, Kingston University, Laurentian University, Lehigh University, Loyola Marymount University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Merrimack Education Center, New York Institute of Technology, North Carolina Research & Education, Ohio State University, Pittsburgh State University, St. Bona Venture University, Science Applications International, University of Central Arkansas, Warwickshire College, Sisters of Mercy Health Systems, St. Louis University, Stanford University, State University of New York at Buffalo, and some curious users of the Alabama Supercomputer Network.

Baked State Allergy Recipe

Back in the day toxicology reports were conducted and reported by neutral third parties. Nowadays, chemical, cosmetic, consumer product and agriculture special interest groups would lead you to believe the same substances that were hazardous to humans at any level back then are safe enough to eat now. For the “baked state allergy” recipe bring your cats and branes. For a balanced report on carbitol cellosolve and other glycol ethers look here

Hypocritic or Hippocratic?

I recently came across the published treatise "Invisible Killers: The Truth About Environmental Genocide" by Rik J. Deitch and MD Stewart Lonky and was bewildered with one of the author's involvement in putting it into print.

In fact, the Maxie Time diary refers to an instance wherein the patient pointedly asks the doctor to assess the possibility that she had suffered a toxic exposure, leading to multiple chemical sensitivity (August 21, 1996) and he replied, "That's a controversial issue, asthma is less so."

Simply amazing what a decade of denial can do; let the statute of limitations run out--or is the reader to conclude that the government along with the medico-legal community want to be trendy (a la Al Gore) and are now comfortable extolling the truth about environmental toxic exposure.

At any rate, while the book is presented by two experts, the subject of "those blonde guys walking around" is carefully avoided--now that would have made for some really interesting reading!
