The reason I write these articles is because being a Gnostic is all about truth. To find absolute truth, we must engage in the process of purifying ourselves mentally (our brains), spiritually and physically. This most certainly includes our thoughts, actions, diet and the study of science. My hopes are to help educate you as I do myself, in the most simple way possible.
When I first saw this story in the New York Times along with the images they had presented of the transparent mouse brain, I immediately saw a connection to my alchemical hell research. In these pictures, you can clearly see the hippocampus or Ammon’s Horn region of the mouse brain which they have made transparent so you can actually see two types of neurons firing inside the brain and also non-neuronal glial cells.
Glial cells, sometimes called neuroglia or simply glia (Greek γλία, γλοία “glue”; pronounced in English as either /ˈɡliːə/ or /ˈɡlaɪə/), are non-neuronal cells that maintain homeostasis, form myelin, and provide support and protection for neurons in the brain, and for neurons in other parts of the nervous system such as in the autonomic nervous system.
My immediate intuition and subsequent short research into these mysterious glial cells has already proven to me personally, that these cells are what are being damaged by ‘unnatural stress.’ These cells provide support and protection for neurons in the brain, and they very well may play a huge part in creating hell or heaven in our human temples which consist of our bodies and brains.
Quite possibly, it is these modern day stresses on man that is causing a fight or flight stress on the human body and brain that then releases chemicals such as sulfur into our blood that reacts with the water and heat to create dangerous ‘sulfuric gasses’ such as sulfur dioxide which may cause death or permanent injury after very short exposure to small quantities. 1,000 ppm causes death in from 10 minutes to several hours by respiratory depression. Sulfur dioxide blocks nerve signals from the pulmonary stretch receptors (PSRs) and abolishes the Hering–Breuer inflation reflex. It is an eye and respiratory tract irritant. Persons with asthma, subnormal pulmonary functions or cardiovascular disease are at a greater risk.
Then you read an article like this example that was brought to my attention, and now everything scientifically connects together. The Health Risks of Sulfur Dioxide in Dried Fruits;
Sulfur dioxide might not sound good enough to eat, but this food preservative does make its way into a number of edibles, including dried fruits such as raisins, dried apricots and prunes. Sulfur dioxide is one type of sulfite, a preservative whose name might be more familiar. Even a small amount of sulfite can wreak health havoc if you’re sensitive to it. If you have asthma, sulfite sensitivity or sulfite allergy, eating dried fruits might cause serious health problems, including breathing problems, life-threatening allergy-like symptoms or, in rare cases, death.
These ‘sulfuric gas cells’ or damaged glial cells must then carry this damage to the brain and central nervous system throughout the billions of cells in the body, that then multiply over time via stress to the point of disease such as cardiovascular disease or a virus such as cancer. My theory may not be far off because you will find that one of the main functions of these glial cells is to provide support and protection for neurons in the brain and Microglia , that are specialized macrophages capable of phagocytosis that protect neurons of the central nervous system. They also have these four main functions:
1. To surround neurons and hold them in place,
3. To insulate one neuron from another
4. To destroy pathogens and remove dead neurons.
Yesterday in my article, What is Hell? – Creating an Alchemical Hell With Your Thoughts, Actions and Life, I had detailed how the toxicity of hydrogen sulfide and dioxide is considered a broad-spectrum poison, meaning that it can poison several different systems in the body, although the nervous system is most affected causing genetic defects, physical damage due to trauma or poison, infection, or simply aging. So we must ask ourselves a common sense question; “If the toxicity of hydrogen sulfide is a poison that causes such things as genetic defects, physical damage due to trauma or poison, infection, or simply aging, then wouldn’t this hydrogen sulfide then damage the glial cells that provide support and protection for neurons in the brain? I would bet that it does.
Here is a snippet of the Times article;
The visible brain has arrived — the consistency of Jell-O, as transparent and colorful as a child’s model, but vastly more useful.
Scientists at Stanford University reported on Wednesday that they have made a whole mouse brain, and part of a human brain, transparent so that networks of neurons that receive and send information can be highlighted in stunning color and viewed in all their three-dimensional complexity without slicing up the organ.
Even more important, experts say, is that unlike earlier methods for making the tissue of brains and other organs transparent, the new process, called Clarity by its inventors, preserves the biochemistry of the brain so well that researchers can test it over and over again with chemicals that highlight specific structures and provide clues to past activity. The researchers say this process may help uncover the physical underpinnings of devastating mental disorders like schizophrenia, autism, post-traumatic stress disorder and others.
The work reported on Wednesday in the journal Nature, is not part of the Obama administration’s recently announced initiative to probe the secrets of the brain, although the senior author on the paper, Dr. Karl Deisseroth at Stanford, was one of those involved in creating the initiative and is involved in planning its future.
Dr. Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, which provided some of the financing for the research, described the new work as helping to build an anatomical “foundation” for the Obama initiative, which is meant to look at activity in the brain.
