"Someday after mastering winds, waves, tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will discover fire" - Teilhard de Chardin.
The Vulcan web site predicts impending comet collisions this century. This is at a time when dramatic magnetic perturbations have been observed altering the movement of the Earth's core have been observed along with a general weakening of the Earth's magnetic field. An impact could 'cement in' dramatic changes in this field, leading to changes that could result in many small dipoles and a general increase of bombardment on the lower latitudes with solar particles producing mutations of viral and bacterial agents. The resulting diseases could overwhelm current medical abilities to cope with these agents, leading to world-wide epidemics.
The thesis proposed herein is that the proximity of two humans with characteristics best described as 'the personality of the soul' offers a therapeutic responses to certain diseases. These characteristics appear to be reasonably well recognizable and may be catalogued. Basically, what occurs is the minimizing of the principle 'fear' of one individual by another with the 'opposite fear' by simply touching (or even just being near to) one another. Certain (viral based?) diseases within an infected individual appear to be mitigated. Physical proximity is usually required, involving distances of less than one inch and 'touching' is often preferable. Such actions when one is 'infected' are usually shunned, and additional fear factors have prevented this simple natural phenomenon to be widely used. The simplicity of the technique has offered additional skepticism.
This technique has yet to be evaluated statistically. Consequently, it is offered as a possible approach to cure 'incurable' diseases. It is not intended to replace current medical procedures now in practice, but rather is offered as a supplement. It has been found very effective against a Cardiomyopathy (caused by a viral infection of the heart and intestine) resulting in the shrinkage of the swollen heart. It also is found effective against Atrial Fibrillation. Both these heart diseases had initially reduced the patients heart's ejection fraction to around 20%. Further, it has demonstrated an ability to curb violent allergic celiac reaction to Gluten, that produces intense vomiting and diarrhea, and may have even reduced the severity of arthritis. There is limited evidence of its effectiveness in reducing Type II Diabetes. These diseases may all be viral related.
