wand of death

I heard from a friend the other day, that a once-mutual colleague (& all-round nice guy) has just been in-formed that he has prostate cancer.

His ‘treatment’ is coming soon to a hospital near him.

Here at toolonginthisplace, ‘cancer’ is not & never has been, religiously honoured or …

 … ‘celebrated’.
Unlike way too much of the rest of the world.

“No, no”, you say to me, “they’re raising money for research”. You know … “To cure cancer”.

Really?

Despite an all-out war on cancer over the past 20 years, people are developing malignancies at a higher rate than ever before” – The Cancer Conspiracy~Dr Toni Jeffreys quoting Science News from 1994

Tell me how far do you think you have to travel down the road of disease before you find health?

At which station along the chemo’d, hacked & amputated way do you think this health will be found?

Let’s suggest that cancer, like disease in general is not curable.

Let’s suggest it is the individual who heals, not the disease.

Let’s suggest that there are many who know this, but then of course cancer is such a … lucrative business.

Let’s suggest that cancer is first & foremost, a mind disease – one that requires concentrated attention to manifest.

This would certainly explain the intensive, invasive, non-stop advertising & promotion.

What I got to wondering today is, what if this mental-disease is magnified by the hands of magicians?

I can think of no other disease that calls for such intrusive/intimate body cavity probes as cancer.  Understand that when doctors go caving/potting

… inside the body, they are seeking buried treasure.

Buried malignant treasure.

Something is very wrong here …

You cannot seek health by looking for disease.

No matter how kindly your doctor may be, he or she, has been schooled in …

… disease & death, not in health.

No matter how illuminated

… they may be, a doctor is on the scent of sickness.

My friend from Nigeria has often quoted his uncle who was a herbalist & healer,

He who heals, can also kill

We have been trained to view modern ‘doctors’ as healers – but I think this may be a dangerous notion.

In the interests of widening our view, just for today, let’s consider doctors from a different angle –

doctor (n.)   c.1300, “Church father,” from O.Fr. doctour, from M.L. doctor “religious teacher, adviser, scholar,” in classical L. “teacher,” agent noun from docere “to show, teach, cause to know,” originally “make to appear right.

And just for today, let’s rename them magicians.

magic (n.)    late 14c., “art of influencing events and producing marvels,” from O.Fr. magique, from L. magice “sorcery, magic,” … from magos “one of the members of the learned and priestly class

Because witch doctors look like …

this,

we never think to equate them with …

this.

But how different are they?

Why would you visit either?  Because they appear to know what you do not?

Church father,” from O.Fr. doctour, from M.L. doctor “religious teacher, adviser

one of the members of the learned and priestly class

Because they appear to have a power to effect a healing that you (apparently) do not?

to … cause to know,” originally “make to appear right.

Before doctors were elevated to the learned & priestly class, they were known as leeches:

leech    obsolete for “physician,” from O.E. læce, from O.Dan. læke, from P.Gmc. *lælijaz “healer, physician”  …  lit. “one who counsels

Spot the difference?

to … cause to know,” … “make to appear right.

or

one who counsels


counsel (n.)    early 13c., from O.Fr. counseil (10c.) “advice, counsel; deliberation, thought

One takes the upper hand, the other does not.

The original use of the word physician was also telling:

physician    early 13c. …  from fisique “art of healing,” from L. physica “natural science” (see physic).”

Yes let’s see physic:

physic   c.1300 … from L. physica “study of nature,” from Gk. physike episteme “knowledge of nature,” …  “pertaining to nature,” … “to bring forth, produce, make to grow”.

We forget way too easily that the body is all about healing

… for that is the way of the natured world.

Quite simply, the life-world is a rich, multidimensional experienced reality of which the scientific world is a part-representation, a reduction, or an abstraction

We forget too that the body is a story-teller – translating emotion into narrative & animating it through the body:

the language that we use about our illness arises from our bodies [which] speak the language of metaphor. The language we use is no accident and provides clues for our understanding of the life events associated with illness

Unfortunately medicine has come to be based almost entirely upon what science can see, resulting in a ‘dead-matter’ view of the person … it is not legitimate for medicine to fail to see meanings”  Meaning-full Disease ~Brian Broom

We return to today’s play-theory – that it may be healthier for us to view doctors as magicians.

This begs some questions.

“How often should we allow our bodies to be penetrated by wizards seeking to find disease within us, especially during a time we have handed over your mental immunity to them?”

And where might the potency of the doctor-magician be concentrated?

In their hands?

I got to wondering about the power in their ‘probing’ fingers.  In particular, could the index finger be regarded as a magic wand/weapon?

each finger is assigned a specific element: the index finger with

fire

digit   late 14c., “numeral below 10,” from L. digitus “finger or toe … related to dicere “tell, say …

… point out.

The ritual requires that you use a magical implement or “weapon”, such as a ceremonial knife, wand, or simply point your index finger

As a gesture of wrath or threat the index finger is raised from the clenched or loosely held fist like a hook, or a pointing fingerMany wrathful deities perform this gesture … 

… Its threatening power is perhaps most vividly expressed in the iconography of Black Hayagriva.  This deity is described as wielding a blazing iron hook in his left hand, with a black iron scorpion poised to sting upon the tip of his raised index finger

Could the vast increase in prostate cancer be at least partly explained, by the seeking-expectation of a …

magic wand,
upon & within the acquiescing body of the patient?

A patient is one who assumes a position of weakness & leaves themselves wide open:

patient (adj.)  early 14c., “bearing or enduring without complaint”.

patient (n.)    “suffering or sick person,” late 14c., patience … (see patience).

Patience    early 13c., “quality of being patient in suffering,” … ” from PIE base *pei- “to damage, injure, hurt“.

There is certainly something powerful about ‘pointing wands‘.

In ecclesiastical and formal government ceremonial, special officials may carry a wand of office or staff of office representing their power.

The first magical wand …

… featured in the Odyssey: that of Circe, who used it to transform Odysseus’s men into animals. Italian fairy tales put them into the hands of the powerful fairies by the late Middle Ages …

… In the ballads such as Allison Gross and The Laily Worm and the Machrel of the Sea, the villainesses use silver wands to transform their victims

… In The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the White Witch’s most feared tool is her wand, whose magic is capable of turning people into stone

Magic wands commonly feature in works of fantasy fiction as spell-casting tools” (wiki)

In the decking of tarot, wands are big enough to wear their own suit:

The Suit of Wands can be thought of as the first suit of the Tarot’s Minor Arcana … As the first suit, Wands represent the idea stage, or “seeds” of a concept … ideas, intention, and growth

In The Book of Thoth, the suit of wands is associated with the action of the Will and the element of fire

… related to fire, the South Wind or a southerly direction, the color red, the four worlds of the Kaballah (Divine, Creative, Formative and Manifest)

“… to do with primal energy … original thought and the seeds through which life springs forth.”

The more esoteric Tarot decks reveal that Wands symbolize the lifeforce

Do understand, this article is not a denunciation of doctors. If I’m very ill I will go & see one.  I have known some nice ones & I’ve known some who were repellent.

What is interesting us here today is the fantastic power they wield –

… how they can sentence a person to die without them ever even standing trial.

Doctors are very like priests – we put our faith in them.

As priests are the front men of religion, so doctor’s are now the front men & women of the pharmaceutical companies –

… they have gone & become the go-between.

This places a serious responsibility upon doctors to check out the drugs they are prescribing.  The trust we put in doctors combined with their priest-like status makes them …

… both pure gold & vital operatives for the pharmaceutical companies. Without doctors approval, pharma companies are fucked – get a doctor to administer a drug & it becomes legitimate medical tender:

If chemo. is spilt on the floor in the hospital ward, it becomes a Red Alert emergency.  Staff must don a special suit, gloves, goggles and mask to clean it up.  And they put this ‘stuff’ into people’s bodies.  Whatever happened to ‘First Do No harm?
 from The Cancer Conspiracy~Dr Toni Jeffreys

The Hippocratic oath once included this life-extending line,

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan

Perhaps the rise of the drug companies necessitated it’s removal?

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organise into an undercover dictatorship”  Dr Benjamin Rush, one of the framers of the American Constitution (from The Cancer Conspiracy)

The following joke email may not be too far off the mark:

“A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.

(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188

Statistics courtesy of FBI.

Conclusion:
Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners

So remember: ‘Guns don’t kill people, doctors do.’

A few years back I had a serious reaction to a drug, resulting in breathing difficulties & a rash over my entire body.  If memory serves me correctly I had to pay to see the doctor so she could tell me that I was having a reaction to the drug.  I was asked to fill out a form which would be sent to the drug company.

I never heard another thing.

Throughout the primitive world, the doctor and the sorcerer tended to be the same person

Why do we think that has changed?

Can a doctor create disease, albeit unintentionally?

Let’s check out some magic tricks.

Introducing an illusion …

Production: The magician produces something from nothing—a rabbit from an empty hat, a fan of cards from thin air, a shower of coins from an empty bucket, a dove from a pan, or the magician him or herself, appearing in a puff of smoke on an empty stage—all of these effects are productions

How deeply are their effects felt?

Penetration: The magician makes a solid object pass through another—a set of steel rings link and unlink, a candle penetrates an arm, swords pass through an assistant in a basket … Sometimes referred to as “solid-through-solid”.

How potent are their powers of science-backed prophesy?

Prediction: The magician predicts the choice of a spectator, or the outcome of an event under seemingly impossible circumstances—a newspaper headline is predicted, the total amount of loose change in the spectator’s pocket, a picture drawn on a slate

How much power do they possess?  How much do we give them?

Mentalism creates the impression in the minds of the audience that the performer possesses special powers to read thoughts, predict events, control other minds, and similar feats

The Magician-Doctor’s Oath:

As a magician (doctor) I promise never to reveal the secret of any illusion to a non-magician (patient), unless that one swears to uphold the Magician’s Oath (pharmaceutical companies) in turn. I promise never to perform any illusion for any non-magician (patient) without first practicing the effect until I can perform it well enough to maintain the illusion of magic.

I passed by my rarely visited doctor’s surgery the other day & something strange happened – I felt an almost physical slap when I noticed the word “DOCTOR” – it was like I’d never seen it before –

… I think, though I’m not sure, that by contemplating the ideas stirred up in this article, I got a glimpse into the immense power that word has been made to have.

Is that healthy I wonder?

The only freedom … is that of pursuing our own good in our own way … Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual.John Stuart Mill

    Alex,

    Nice point of view here, sharing a new ‘angle’. I work with many of these ‘magicians’, and some of them are indeed great people, but as we’ve discovered, they are “pharmaceutical trained” by Big Corporation Pharmacy. To push magic pills for instant desired effects.

    I have noticed the decline in “business” as people are waking up to new alternative methods they should have used to begin with, in healing the body. The body has magnificent methods to detoxify itself and to start the healing process.

    Kudos to giving others ‘ideas to ponder’.

    Cheers!

    Harry Potter: “Are they doctors?”

      Hi Michael
      Exactly so – healing is never about pill pushing.

      There are indeed lovely, genuine people who are doctors but the responsibility remains – to question the potential ‘weapons of mass destruction’ that they prescribe.

      The body does indeed have phenomenal curative properties – this should always have been the golden rule – to assist that, as one would ‘assist’ at a natural birth – letting the process unfold as it’s meant to & only stepping if if absolutely necessary.

      Thanks for your thoughts my friend

      Many thanks Brad
      My library has a copy of his book, so I’m going to give it a go!

      very best to you

      Hi Eleleth
      Very telling quote! found a bit more – “Doctors cut people, like you said, Healers use magic to heal people”

      I was thinking the same thing as I looked for pics of wands – it does lead to the same conclusion – long pointy/pointing things are powerful generators/’transferers’ of energy.

      Thanks for that
      very best to you

  4. Mick replied:

    Wonderful post, but oh dear, pointy, penetrating wands made me think of a British advert from the late 70’s for a chocolate sweet called ‘finger of fudge’: the first line of the catchy song running – “a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat”. In our innocence as children we used to sing it while playing in the school playground. As teenagers we used to laugh at the sexual connotation without realising the symbology.
    Nowadays there is no excuse, all doctors are culpable – they are fudgers rather than healers. Just as therapy is rape of the mind, surgery is rape of the body. Like priests they ‘make to appear right’ rather than counselling true healing. Deceivers and Desecrators! Wonderful meaning to physic, thanks Alex.

    One wonderrs whether society requires medication or ” L’ Exorcisme Grande’, as I believe there was a fine line between illness and possession. Personally I think many believe at some time or other they ‘should’ be ill so that they appear ‘normal’.

    The farmer-ceutical companies have merely ‘earthed’ demons and call them by fascinating appelations such as ‘Vypoxicol, Zolpadeine, BeeleMax, … etc etc’ .

    There is the great selling angle of side-effects that require other demons/drugs to alleviate them.

    As far as the ad[per]verting of disease – the modern way of witchcraft and sorcery but with the added benefit of ‘no cure is not the doctor’s fault’ – as it just one large experiment – any cure or return to health to be duly noted, a fortunate side-effect.

    In Czech the herb ‘sage'[ wiseness] is called ‘šalvej’ – salvation.

    Zolpadeine and others bear no good association

    aferrismoon made some great points, I often wondered why the strange named, perhaps they are associated with spells/castings/demonic summonings via entering the body, once ingested, watch out. I mean just do a quick Google of ‘prescription drug names’ and you’ll be bombarded with high weirdness.

    Cheers!

  7. Mick replied:

    I also agree with aferrismoon. Everything is ritual and sorcery, is it not? Have googled what you suggested, Michael. Ok, what’s the difference between that and, say, Enochian or Kabbalistic magick. None that I can fathom.

      Hi Mick
      I had a look at those ‘priming’ ads, man that song really ‘sticks’ – wonder how many laughs went on behind the scenes?

      We have to start the job of seeing clearly – there are a shocking number of deaths or side effects from prescribed drugs, alternatives are squashed & really nasty drugs & vaccines are promoted – being well-meaning is not enough.

      very best to you

      Greetings mr moon – hope you traveled well

      I’m in agreement with you on illness & possession – I think there are hoards of nasties that masquerade as illness – do drugs just weaken the fight left in a person, perhaps dulling their senses so that they think an improvement is taking place?

      Illness has become a celebrity – with cancer as the superstar – a friend was telling me today that there’s a site he visits where people boast of “beating cancers ass” where they’re either about to go into surgery or in chemo” – he goes on to say “its a photo op now” – & I think he’s quite right – it’s a modern way of getting attention & because they’re ‘deathly sick’ others are forced to pay up (in attention).

      Splendid thoughts on demon drugs – Michael’s comment (re your comment) really got me thinking about the weirdness of the names – we’re so used to the strange names our wtf button got switched off.

      I think your sage says it all – salvation via wisdom, can there really be another way and just to go hand in hand with that take a look at this:

      “pharmaceutical 1640s (pharmaceutic in the same sense is from 1540s), from L. pharmaceuticus “of drugs,” from Gk. pharmakeutikos, from pharmakeus “preparer of drugs, poisoner

      Hearty best wishes

      Your insight was very ‘insightful’ Michael, I would think in part the names are to mesmerise the ‘audience’ – part of the mentalism programme, instilling the idea in the watchers that great, secret things are known, but will not be revealed.

      Good point Mick – interesting to see more magic themes appearing

      cheers

      Ah, Gracias Tom – did you see the etymology of pharmaceutical in my reply to aferrismoon above – kinda ‘fitting’

      very best to you

  9. raffi replied:

    in his book “confessions of a medical heretic (c.1979)”, robert mendelsohn, md says:

    “I no longer believe in Modern Medicine. I believe that despite all the super technology and elite bedside manner… the greatest danger to your health is the doctor who practices Modern Medicine. I believe that Modern Medicine’s treatments for disease are seldom effective, and that they’re often more dangerous than the disease they’re designed to treat. I believe more than 90% of Modern Medicine could disappear from the face of the earth — doctors, hospitals, drugs and equipment — and the effect on our health would be immediate & beneficial… Modern Medicine can’t survive without our faith, because Modern Medicine is neither an art nor a science. It’s a religion.”

    a doctor should/could be a “leech”/guide to health and vitality rather than death/disease and morbidity. but, they too are rats in the rat race (as most of us are too in any given profession). unfortunately, their indoctrination/training leaves them blindly destroying life and crushing spirit while in a “do no harm” trance. as you mention, disease and death is really all they know and see, and they wouldn’t understand health unless it was officially diagnosed via a laboratory test. their training trivializes examining a healthy 88 year old man and determining common practices that he (and all the other healthy octogenarians) did to remain healthy.

    i do not blame them completely because [most] everyone intuitively knows compassion/empathy, knows right from wrong, and has a choice. however, just as other ‘doctors’ (lawyers {JurisDoc}, researchers {PhilosDoc}, educators {EducDoc}, theologians {DocTheo}, etc.), physicians memorize then follow a script and perform magic spells written for them by a truly anti-human lot. they are the slave masters and architects of rat cages. in this case, medical doctors are the pious ‘muscle’ for the mega church pharmaceutical industry – the most profitable industry in the united states (and likely the world).

    i think dr. mendelsohn gives part of the answer in his quote, “[it] can’t survive without our faith”. this applies to every ‘doctored’ field with pontificating doctors. but, i look for solutions when i feel painted into a corner. so, where to go from there?

    i certainly believe alternative (homeopathic, eastern, folk, etc.) medicine is…. an alternative. but, just like alternative media, it was quickly hijacked and most real truth has been diluted. big pharma quickly infiltrated and cornered lucrative opportunities in nutritional supplements, organic foods, anti-aging, etc… it’s all mega church, all over!

    again, the solution includes one truly trusting their own intuition, researching and finding that which coincides with that intuition, and then personalizing and adopting it to work in one’s life. if we place the same faith in ourselves as we blindly place on doctors and their masters’ spells, we will find real health… and certainly not on that dead end “big c railway”. even more so, we will truly be divine.

    p.s. i am realllllly sorry i rambled like that… i was under a spell ;)

    • alex robinson replied:

      Wow Raffi that was awesome rambling – that book sounds like a surgical procedure on the medical trade/religion!

      Agreed we are just as much a product of our little mazes but doctors have the power of death & serious injury within their hands on a daily basis.

      Also agreed on the new trade of alternative health – another thriving business now where usually only the ‘well-paying’ can benefit.

      I very much like your prescription for health & I thank you for your great thoughts :)

      very best to you

  11. Mick replied:

    Thanks Alex.

    It’s all in a name and, as you and Tom point out, it’s in our face that the pharmaceutical industry is the poison industry. The tag Big Pharma just makes it sound so friendly, like Old Nick, or the Jolly Green Giant, who was depicted as a big farmer.

    Here’s a link to the drug ‘Lunesta’, obviously a spirit of the moon, it is an angel summoned to combat the demon insomnia.

    http://www.rxlist.com/lunesta-drug.htm

    When you look at the chemical diagram, isn’t it similar to an angelic sigil? The description could very well come from a medieval grimoire. Scroll down and read the side effects: this angel/drug will very likely cause lunacy in the summoner.

  12. Mick replied:

    Well, well (or should that be, ill, ill), the company name for the drug is Cerner Multum. Is this an aspect of the famed horned one?

  13. Ross replied:

    Wonderful stuff Alex, but in your etymological diagnosis of the dangerous and often lethal infectious condition known as White Coat Unnecessary Death Syndrome, you missed two of the more obvious indicators of the pathology:

    doctor (verb) 1. to tamper with; falsify: 2. to add a foreign substance to; adulterate.

    I dug up some figures for the US from a few years ago:
    deaths from firearms – 36,000 p.a.
    deaths from auto accidents – 38,000 p.a.
    iatrogenic deaths – 250,000 p.a.

    Iatrogenic, now there’s a word you don’t often hear.

    iatrogenic (adjective) caused by the diagnosis, manner, or treatment of a physician.

    That figure is one of the more conservative estimates, using a broader definition of ‘iatrogenic death’ produced a figure of 750,000. In one year. In the US alone. 110,000 deaths from prescribed pharmaceuticals, or poisoning as it is more usually known, poisoning by doctors as it should be known. If you want to stay healthy, if you want to stay alive actually, best to keep away from men (and women) in white coats. There is a fair chance they will try to kill you, for profit. The Chinese have the right idea. You pay your physician a small retainer while you are well, and as soon as you fall ill you stop paying him until you are well again.

    Ah yes, cancer, or perhaps (fanfare) *Cancer*, the glittering superstar of the death by medicine scam. A $65 billion p.a. industry in the US, who could possibly want it to go away and end all that profit. At the dawn of the 1970s Nixon made a long forgotten speech where he looked to emulate Kennedy’s ‘man on the moon’ pledge a decade earlier. He set the new challenge for the 70s ‘to find a cure for cancer before the decade is out’. Fortunately he wasn’t being serious, otherwise all those ‘charities’ would have to cease trading, all those wards would have to close, all those doctors would be out of work and all those expensive ‘treatments’ would result in criminal charges.

    We are all born with cancer cells in our body, our immune system takes care of them. Magic Cancer therefore, is a symptom of a malfunctioning immune system, which is probably why as a treatment they stuff you full of poison to ensure that your immune system can barely function at all. To assist your immune system in this task ensure that you have vitamin B 17 in your diet. It has been mostly bred out of our food, but is still found in grape seeds, apple pips, apricot/peach/nectarine kernels amongst others. If something does go wrong, search for Rick Simpson, a non-doctor who is curing people of ‘terminal’ cancer by using our most wonderful medicine, hemp. In fact hemp will cure many things, it truly is nature’s gift to us all. Indeed it is so useful and beneficent you will be put in prison for growing one in your back garden.

    Good stuff.

    I support Brad’s link- after being raw vegan for over a year and undergoing a complete transformation of mind/body/spirit, I have discovered that there isn’t much that a raw food diet, green juice, and/or fasting (if done correctly) can’t remedy. Most of us have the fortunate capability of being our own healers. We can purchase raw living produce, herbs, get a juicer, and play around with other healing modalities. Simple enough. Our bodies are magnificent! They will always work to be healthy if we allow them to do their job- as well-being is their inherent “rightness”.

    We are told that travel in the spirit world or healing world requires relinquishing our power + will and paying for the middleman tour guide. Since we never know as much as the doctor/pope, we can’t possibly save ourselves! How much are we losing and missing out on by not engaging directly?

    The X Hex! Lately I have noticed that X and Z pop up frequently in media culture + entertainTment, most often related to dark and dodgy progRamming. I can’t claim to know the specific significance of those letters. Intriguing, the prevalence of X and Z as well, in pharma branding…

    • alex robinson replied:

      Mick – thanks for fanning the flames – have thoughts, will write more.
      very best to you

      Very good Ross – I missed those indeed – also didn’t get round to including “indoctrination”!

      One wonders why doctors are not up in arms about the possibility of killing someone with prescribed kindness – if you think food is off you throw it away, if you don’t feel comfortable walking down a dark alley you take a different route, if you’re unsure of something that may affect your well-being, the natural course to take is to avoid it – so what is going on with doctors – perhaps they feel their hands are so tied, that they have no alternative.

      Yes I’ve heard of horrible stories of people finding, or working with cures who are hounded to destruction – I wonder if there’s a reason that people with cancer have to suffer horrific, disgusting ‘cures’ – are there certain types of people who develop it? Perhaps those who do have a connection to some kind of innate body knowledge that needs to be cooked/destroyed – really is there any other disease where humans are treated so viciously?

      thanks for your thoughts
      very best to you

      Hi Vita
      You sound wonderfully healthy. I’m so sure you are right, we are meant to be our own healers. If we look with different eyes & ears we might see that sickness has its own meaning & story, one we are meant to translate & hear – hearing heals so much.

      The Western World seems to revolve around middlemen – that seems to be how it works – remove the immediate touch of one person with another & insert some kind of dead/’plastic’ device – whether it be money, mobile, tablet or condom – the places & ways we can meet life head on are dwindling so badly – that is not ok.

      The ‘Zedex’ phenomena- for some reason it absolutely, positively has to be there – I wonder why ??

      very best to you

    And a completely different tack, to a degree:

    “L O R A X is an anagram that breaks down into three symbolic clusters: AO, RX, and L. AO represents Alpha and Omega (O — Omnicron — here is a substitute for W — Omega — in keeping with the transformation of the Greek to Roman alphabets). These two letters, as we know, symbolize Christ, who said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega.” RX (as I discuss in my column on the Caduceus), is usually taken to mean “prescription” as in the pharmacist’s symbol, but it actually comes from another transformation of Greek to Roman alphabets; the R and X represent Rho and Chi, which in the Greek alphabet are P and X. Chi and Rho are the first two letters in Christos, or Christ. The X written over the P is the typical Chiro recognized as the symbol for Christ.”

    This would link XP also with Microsoft. Both computing and medicine seem to be a bad alchemy.

    Good energy for the next article, Alex.

    Very interesting and thought-provoking post. I too use to work for a private clinic in an administration capacity and saw first hand that strangeness from doctors who would talk to patients like they were family, then speak about them and treat them like they were simply another ‘test-tube’ experiment. Working in the ‘abortion’ industry for a while I came away from it with a very different view about life, about men and women, and sex, and the future of the human race…if that makes sense?

    The fore-finger spell-casting always gives me a shiver and I don’t like it when people point a finger at me,…again, if that makes sense?

    Hi Marty
    I remember reading of scientists who can grow fond of the animals they test on, but it doesn’t stop them from testing on or killing them. If you can test on animals, you can test on humans – the dishonouring of life has already been expressed.
    In the medical world it seems all are ‘meat’.

    I don’t think anyone likes being pointed at – something very sharp, intrusive & damaging about that – maybe what’s happening is some kind of laser-like scorching – focused, burning energy.

    very best to you
