Which Way to Utopia?

Which way to Utopia?

Topia is the land of extremes, stretching from Orwellian Dystopia all the way to Robert Owen-esque Utopia.

Apparently George Orwell was living a secluded life (with his son) on a remote Scottish island (Jute) while he penned the nightmare of 1984. In the BBC documentary about Orwell, a Scottish resident commented that he was paranoid, believing that people on the mainland were stealing his letters.

Utopia is an ideal world where everyone is included, well and happy. As in Heaven, there is no concept of money or time, and borders don’t exist. Sometimes I wonder what birds think when they fly over immigration checkpoints with all the surveillance and processing that it involves.

Dystopia is governed in a climate of fear whereas everyone enjoys absolute freedom in Utopia. In other words, people are allowed to be themselves in Utopia because diversity is encouraged.

HERE IS AN ABSTRACT I PENNED RECENTLY:

The purpose of this study is to identify appropriate policies, systems and a progress indicator to harmonise our planet by eradicating poverty, economic instability (boom and bust cycles), war and corruption.

This research covered:
1) a study of global transformation and the universal laws of energy
2) the underlying causes of poverty, economic instability, war and corruption
3) progress indicators (and the effective use of GDP in global capitalism)
4) person-centred education (facilitation)
5) information systems and database technology

This study concludes that a transparent ‘person-centred’ system (such as the Zero Competition (0C) System) should replace our competitive culture to achieve global harmony.

The 0C System applies sophisticated science and technology in a cashless society. In a world without competition, everyone supports each other to achieve their potential harmoniously.

The foundations of the 0C System are a perfect information system and a system which matches individuals’ needs with available resources. This system recognizes that everyone has unique needs depending on their genetic code, abilities and passions.

Everyone has access to the comprehensive online database of global resources. Each resource is objectively specified, indexed, bar-coded and linked to a worldwide inventory system.

The concept of possession replaces legal ownership so all resources belong to the collective.

Every person has a ‘digital wallet’ which is credited with their necessary resources (including HR) to live well and achieve their potential.

In a highly automated society part-time volunteering replaces paid employment because robots perform most productive tasks.

The 0C System operates in a world without national borders.

The new global progress indicator measures global harmony instead of consumption. Everyone contributes to the Global Harmony Index (GHI) via proportional representation.

Once the 0C System is operational there will be optimal use of resources, minimal pollution and waste, so everyone can live in harmony with the natural environment.

THE NUMEROLOGY OF GENDER

IS ADAM SUPERIOR TO EVE?

Hello! My name is Phil Gemini (Philip Wylie’s esoteric brand). As a numerologist I divine the essence of words and numbers.

Have you ever wondered why, according to the bible, Adam could not accept his wife Eve as an equal?

My research into gender supremacy using numerology unveiled a few interesting surprises….

First, let’s analyse the essence of the MALE gender:

MAL- is a prefix to ‘Male’ indicating negation. For example, Malfunction means ‘not functioning’. So, MAL- essentially means ‘not’ or Bad.

The numerology of MAL = 3 + 1 + 4 = 8

The number 8 is about production, business and abundance. This makes sense because historically man is expected to be the provider of the family.

MALE = MAL + E = 8 + 5 = 13

13 is a KARMIC NUMBER.

Man has a karmic debt to woman. However, there are Hebrew scripts which provide evidence that during the creation of planet Earth, Adam’s first wife was called Lilith before he met Eve. Lilith was apparently made of sediment, just like Adam, but Adam insisted on being superior to Lilith. However, Lilith refused to be subordinated by Adam so they separated. Afterwards, Adam created Eve from his rib so she was inferior to him. This controversial story indicates that man has a massive karmic debt to women (represented by Lilith).

FEMALE = MALE + F + E = 13 + 6 + 5 = 24/ 6

The number 6 is about home and beauty.

The prefix ‘FE’ = 6 + 5 + 11

The number 11 is a master number which brings magic and creativity. It is the female who creates offspring.

The word WOMAN = W + O + MAN = 5 + 6 + (4 + 1 + 5) = 11 + 10 = 21/3

Did you notice that the prefixes WO and FE both are equal to 11, a master number which brings creativity and magic?

The union of numbers 1 (the man) with the 2 (the mother) enables the creation of the number 3 which is represented by a talented child.

The numerology of MAN = 4 + 1 + 5 = 10/1

The number 1 is single and pioneering male energy.

When we add the female prefix of the master number 11 to number 1 (for MAN) the sum is 12/3. Therefore the addition of the female to the male creates a third being, the child.

Therefore when man is in relationship with woman there is possibility of creation.

So, it’s time for Adam to balance his relationship with Eve!

A Bloody Miracle by Philip Wylie

A BLOODY MIRACLE
Philip Wylie, 23 February 2018

Cardiovascular disease affects half the population in older age. The good news is that there are effective ways of beating this issue which I will share with you in this article.

Since the age of thirteen I have enjoyed cross-country running and jogging. However, after the age of 50 I suffered a series of sprains, twisted ankles, ruptured ligaments and tendons in my lower calf area.

In November 2015 my medical doctor in Chiang Mai suggested that I book a course of treatments with a physiotherapist specializing in sports injuries. The treatments included ultrasound, calf stretching exercises and “ice immersion therapy”.

Ice Immersion Therapy involves filling up a large bin with slabs of frozen ice and topping up the container with cold water. Then the injured sportsman immerses the lower leg into the icy water for up to twenty minutes with breaks as necessary. Apparently psychiatrists in Nazi Germany also used to torture prisoners during WW2 by freezing them in tubs of icy water. Anyway, I survived this immersion treatment for about five weeks.

The next month, in December 2015, my medical doctor noted that my injury had not healed so he sent me to a local hospital for Doppler ultrasound of both legs. On 18 December 2015 a physician at Chiang Mai Ram Hospital reported that I had acute deep vein thrombosis on my left superficial vein down to my popliteal vein.

Due to low blood pressure, lack of exercise (due to my sports injuries) and high cholesterol, a blood clot (or embolism) had formed in my vein in the left knee. The remedy for this cardiovascular disease is blood-thinning medication.

My doctor told me that I had choice of blood-thinning (anticoagulant) medications: the aggressive approach being a drug called Warafin, or a gentler approach using the natural herb Gingko Bilboa and 81mg of Aspirin. I chose the less aggressive option.

I noticed that my lower left leg had expanded because the blood was unable to circulate upwards as it should. I was walking around with an extra couple of pints of blood in my left leg below my knee. Apparently this is dangerous because the blood clot (or embolism) could travel upwards and cause either a heart attack or a stroke.

In March 2016 I had a nasty motorbike accident which wounded my lower left leg. Apparently if I had been taking Warafin I would have lost a massive amount of blood and possibly died. Therefore I am grateful that my doctor offered me the option of taking less aggressive blood thinners.

I consulted a herbalist in Chiang Mai who advised me about the following natural medicines:

– Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica) and Safflower for activating blood circulation

– Salvia Miltiorrhiza (Danshen) and Panax Notoginseng which prevent blood clots

Another recommended treatment is to elevate the affected leg in bed by resting it on cushions. Also, it is advisable to keep body weigh down and to exercise by swimming, cycling, Tai Chi and yoga.

In December 2017 I changed my diet radically and became a vegan to reduce my cholesterol level.

In January 2017, by chance, I met a German cardiologist known as Doctor Heart at a co-working space known as CAMP in Chiang Mai. I told Dr Heart about my blood clot and that I was taking Gingko Bilboa and Aspirin as anticoagualants.  Dr Heart was not impressed by my choice of treatment … and then he scared me.

Dr Heart said that my doctor should have prescribed Warafin immediately and that now it was too late for me to start using this medicine. He told me that I would probably have a heart attack or a stroke – he wasn’t sure which – and that I should sue my doctor for giving me inappropriate treatment.  At this point in the conversation, I fainted and actually collapsed onto the floor. Dr Heart offered me a bottle of water after lifting me back onto my seat and then promptly left.

The following day, on 10 January 2017, I attended the Leg-Vein Clinic in Chiang Mai where I had another ultrasound scan. This scan revealed that my body had created new veins around the blood clot, meaning that my body had healed itself.

At the beginning of 2018 I stopped taking Aspirin, preferring to use natural medicines only. I ordered Gingko Bilboa, multivitamins and Omega 3 fish oil (from iherb.com) to complement my vegan diet.

I have also been advised to wear a compression stocking if I take any long-haul flights. People who are prone to blood clots are most vulnerable on long flights because there is minimal blood circulation during these long trips. Therefore Deep Vein Thrombosis is sometimes called ‘Economy Class Syndrome’ though upgrading to Business Class doesn’t necessary prevent the disease.

Conclusion

The best way to avoid Deep Vein Thrombosis is to have a low-cholesterol – ideally vegan – diet and plenty of exercise. Gingko Bilboa is an effective natural blood thinner. If you have low blood pressure you are also advised to wear compression stockings on flights of over five hours’ duration.

What’s this site all about?

This site delves into all types of issues from around this insane but beautiful planet, shedding light, insight and a bit of humour if you’re lucky!

I don’t intend to upset anyone (with a few exceptions) because my focus is about revealing knowledge and interesting stuff and generally inspiring people to be creative and think for themselves.

Here are just a few of the topics you will find on this site: Utopian systems, psychology, philosophy …. and that’s just the beginning.

Perspectives on Age and Ageism

If only!

Perspectives on Age and Ageism by Phil Gemini.

I officially became an “older person” on Sunday 12 February 2017 at 12 minutes past 5.00 AM on Canal Road, Chiang Mai. I was riding my bicycle and at this moment I witnessed the Chiang Mai University marathon in the darkness.

There were hundreds of students running the 26-kilometer course. Most of the participants were wearing the most expensive, fashionable and colorful clothes. Many of the students were monitoring their heart beats using the latest medical monitors attached to their arms.

Beautiful 20-something ladies with feathered  wings clipped to their backs were carrying balloons as they ran. I was witnessing a fashion parade which began at 4.00 AM. I detected many smiles but I was amazed by the effortlessness of their activity.

This was the day that I feel like an older being. I have been young, I promise, but on this day I had trouble remembering what it was like to be so beautiful, virile and carefree. Actually, I have never been a slave to fashion, so ‘bollocks’ to that – but I admit that I enjoyed the spectacle!
