The beholder within

cultural codes filter identical perceptual experiences in slightly different ways, each leading to unique, even antithetical destinies

Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power ―Seneca

"Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries, they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence" ―Christopher McDougall



CPU: Stands for Central Processing Unit, yet regarding our brain, it refers to our Limbic System: Completely Primitive Unconscious

OS: Stands for Operating System in computers. Organized Screener in our case, one of the many executive functions of the Prefrontal Cortex

I/O: (Input/Output) monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. help CPUs interact, as our sensory receptors (eyes, ears, nose, taste buds, skin, etc.) help us

CODE: Contains the commands that computers follow. We get fed these from infancy, via sounds, colors, flavors, aromas, etc. to set what stimuli spur enough dopamine in our brain to keep us coming back for more

FOUR STATES OF HEALTH: Cerebral, Physical, Financial and Social


Imagine our brains as servers powering a +7 billion network, where culture is a server-code and language can only code content. Question: If a group of coders became aware of this design, would they tell us? Or would they focus on coding “cultural illusions” to steer the rest of us in favor of their own destiny?


Many of the foods and habits said to prolong our health might be harmful or at best useless over time. For instance, when it comes to:

Nutrition: Keeping our brain healthy depends on this factor more than any. Yet, as shown in Hack the Matrix, it is difficult to change our fate in this area, unless we realize our senses were bred since young, to crave foods bearing no nutritional value and high odds of triggering irreversible cell-damage

Exercise: Most of us think of it as a way of counteracting the effects of unhealthy eating habits, a notion fueling our yearning for useless gear. For instance, as posted in Huarache Runners and explained by Chris McDougall (Appendix B), the larger the gap between our soles’ nerve endings and the surface we run on, the higher the potential for injury

Social interaction follows rules of engagement established by our animal brain’s perceived social status. Thus, optimizing our “net protocol” rests on identifying, committing to, and incorporating high-rank behavior code, despite unique constraints

Below, I review four precepts collected over a decade seeking answers to the "Simulation" dilemma presented by Matrix (1999) and accidentally... Finding (stumbling upon) them, in the least expected places: Appendix B.
For instance, upon learning thatsensory adaptationmakes our perception (sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch) highly prone to manipulation, I keep aiming to detoxify my sense of taste, knowing it embeds the food choices and ultimately the lifestyle diseases, we think our own, unaware that our Matrix-like “Sensory Masters” ingrain them in our brain since infancy.
In 2009, after years of research, but mostly by trial & error, I found Fuhrman’s Health = Nutrients Per Calorieapproach and the simplest way to execute it: G-BOMBS. Since then, I discovered five other pioneering MDs (Appendix A) whose work confirms or precedes Fuhrman’s.
On the other hand, what led me to these findings was the present era of nearly-free access to information, made possible by Tim Berners-Lee and our Matrix-like complex. So, while the Internet does spread a million lies, when carefully vetted, today’s infinite information bounty gives you a degree of control over your destiny, no previous generation ever had... Or, it can turn you into a slave to the myriad addictive virtual worlds,whose food is your existence.


Optimal Nutrition by Serge Faguet

Do not eat sugar in any form. Sugar is poison. This means no candy, fruit juices, bread, pasta, honey etc. There are many disagreements about nutrition science. That sugar is extremely bad for you is not one of them.

  • Do not eat processed foods. Eat natural food instead.
  • Eat mostly plants although I feel going entirely vegetarian for health reasons is not justified.
  • Do not eat processed foods. Eat natural food instead.
  • Eat organic when possible, especially when discussing animal products. Generally spend more money on food — the cheaper the food, the more “hacks” the producer used to be able to deliver that price. Many of these hacks are harmful — they inject saline solution to increase weight, feed dead animals to live animals, use antibiotics a lot etc.
  • In my opinion one shouldn’t drink any alcohol (screws up sleep) or add any salt (increases blood pressure) to food.

Berkeley summa cum laude, double PhD (Brain + Cognitive Sciences) and NISOD Excellence Award professor, Dr. Susan Peirce shows why form (NOT substance) makes food addictive. Another proof that cultural brainwash runs our “common sense” beliefs system.

TWO of the substances in this picture are everyday FOODS, the other two are STREET DRUGS. All FOUR cause dopamine-spikes that allow our Limbic System to HIJACK our Pre-frontal Cortex’s ABILITY TO THINK (min 35).

  • We can’t all be rich.
  • We can’t all be famous.
  • We can’t all be Someone Who Matters to the World
  • OR CAN WE?
