What comes first - the light?

(Chickens lay more eggs through the winter when lighting is used. I enquired what kind of lighting and the answer was fluorescent tubes).

So only 'blue end' fluorescent lighting. Not daylight matching.
I wonder if the latter would have a better outcome but while 'eggs is eggs' and fluorescent tubes are much cheaper their light diet will likely stay the same. I hope they get out as well.

Excuse me if I weave some of the forum threads as they present themselves. (IE to the general attention such as it moves).

I have a strong sense that as we treat life, so are we in receipt of life. That many humans are lining up to suffer being factory pharmed, and used for human experimentation without the wits or the will to escape is a horrible prospect. A race to the bottom? Whence a 'regenerate society?'.

Let there be light...
I don't know about chickens, but Alexander Wunsch's work indicates that fluorescent lighting is not health supporting for us - the infra red spectra balances the blue stressor. (Some 'eco' lighting may be the equivalent of low fat margarine). Where there is the balancing of red and blue spectra, the stressor operates FOR health.  There is also something of the communication of mercury in the spectra. But there is a lot more to light than seeing where things are.

Trypt over the truth...?
We likely are aware of the benefits to the yolk, but tryptophan in egg white is a precursor for serotonin. Which may induce more agreeable, less anxious moods and less compulsion to shout at other motorists. Too much and you may die peacefully in your sleep while you passengers scream. Relaxing can kill.

But nutrition - as I see it - is incredibly complex as a manual management of balancing systems that likely include linkages of which we are not even aware. So I see the supplementing exploration as one of those attempts to understand that leads to the recognition that we cannot possible understand. A natural humility then finds a natural balance because life was never designed to be lived scientifically.

In all cellular or embodied life the movement to pleasure and away from pain is the primary motivation. You could substitute nutrient and toxin for the same meaning at cellular leval. But human minds are a complex of definitions by association that operate a filtering system of meanings to the extent we can - and often do - choose pain and deny pleasure. Operate self-destructively, foul our own nest.

While all sorts of physical causes of sickness seem to apply to varying degrees, the underlying context is the world-construct that we co-create and suffer. Largely unconsciously as a result of conditionings arrived at from action and reaction. A lot of symptoms turn up somewhere downstream. A sense of self-betrayal, suppressed as 'chaos' doesn't seem to be involved in the
cascading retreat into surviving relationships instead of living them. Which is trying to assert or impose a sense of balance from a sense of separation in life and thus generating the need to control that shuts out the relaxation and flow.

What life has made us for and what we make of such a life. I chose not to say 'what life makes of us' - because in truth I see no truly separate doer and done by. That aspect of religion I gladly release. But science does presume a separation in its own rational disassociation and intent to define, predict and control. And persists the 'jealous god syndrome even while reformulating everything as if there is no self but its directive. And does so my manipulating the mythic and symbolic of the subconscious in PR, advertising, propaganda and doublespeak.

With Big Data and the means of control, society is being reformulated as if it is only systems to define, capture and control. But it is also an 'operating system' that is energised by running from it. Define, predict and control.

But what if the true of  life (from which we cannot be separate and yet know existence) is not a chaos but rather a misperceived imbalance as a result of trying to order it around - that becomes the basis of a tantrum - or self-organizing persistence?

And thus abiding in the 'chaos' - as a movement of willingness to heal or be healed - suddenly understands what it had hitherto been unaware of or blocked from seeing. It may be only a moment and a glimpse - but the quality of such a shift becomes the basis of fresh perspectives of exploration because our structure of thinking changed as a result of knowing life in a quality we cannot explain or articulate so much as live what it brings.

In this sense 'chaos' is the symptom of rejected or denied self - and not wrongly so - because as children, we have to protect ourself from what we are not able to face or resolve - and by whatever works in the moment. We are not a tabla rasa (blank slate) and nor is our world. But the attempt to blank the unwanted, operates as the avoidance of fear or pain, framing and directing
the relative 'pleasure' of temporary release from pain, and driving a negative agenda under a sense of a positive intent.

Pharma is one part of the attempt to put a lid on 'chaos' that in short term sense may serve purpose, but it generates further fragmentations or progeny that come up like 'whack a mole!' and war on 'chaos' becomes a righteous 'identity' in heroic intervention - for a while. The motivation away from 'chaos' and toward 'magic answer' is the reversal of a natural consciousness.

Realigning in life is on purpose as a sense of being alive - which is very different in its qualities from an identity gained in opposition to feared or hated or shamed sense of life. Accepted purpose is not coercive upon us, but rather a sense of being truly moved. Here I find a natural order - more of the nature of music and dance.

Beyond all reason, perfect sense

Another comment on Malcolm's blog to this comment:

True, of course. However, the scientific method is all we’ve got really. It is imperfect, most humans twist and bend facts to suit themselves, and suchlike – doctors are probably the very worst at this. Actually, no probably about it. In the end, though, we have to cling to the scientific method – or else what is there to do? Throw it away. Then what?
Don't throw it away (devalue yourself). But stop using it as a weapon or market-capture. So called facts operate the basis of war, enslavement and oppression. What is the undeniable core fact of your existence? The answer is of course in the question as always. But thinking 'existence' is no substitute for feeling, being and knowing existence. There's the foundation or lack thereof.

The core issue is between desire for true and the wish something ELSE be true.
In the latter, the 'mind of a wish' operates a filtering distortion by which what is not true, is experienced.
This 'self' is not visible as an object, or as a set of ideas, while looking through the belief in it.
But these believed ideas are not hidden from the desire to know the truth, INSTEAD of, persisting the wish to MAKE it so. We are innately capable of noticing what in fact we are doing.

Desire aligns focus of intention and attention. True desire is not a struggle, but maintaining and defending a substitute desire is inherently a struggle by which the true is feared and suppressed.
Thus we have experience of the revealing of a world where 'everything is backwards' IF we are broken from the spell of a blind belief in it.

Our 'model' of reality is a multi-layered complex of definitions with core commonalities and yet many conflicting cultural and personal edges. One cannot enter this 'human experience' without the development of the ego or personality construct - which itself develops over time, along with its model of reality.

Our self development does not begin upon a scientific or rational basis, but rather tends to be arrested there. For the protection of a wished-for sense of self and reality, held against actuality is the basis of a defensive system of a 'self' protective survival. Rationalisations operate as psychological defences by asserting strategic 'truths' by which to justify oneself or invalidate a perceived threat - which can be anything that does NOT support the  'self' investment.

Of course rational also means reasoned, logical, congruent, unconflicted in itself. Reason is a term for sanity, of heart and mind, but the asserting of 'rational' supremacy or priority over life is neither reasonable or sane, but rather creating an 'elect priesthood' to oversee the determining and mandating of 'reality' in exclusive terms. Feelings of the heart's resonance or dissonance can be denied by a cold and loveless reason, that can justify and enact destructive acts under its sense of rational justification.

If true is what is, as it is, then it can hardly be withheld or denied you. But in insisting that stories are true, we can and do withhold and deny our acknowledgement and recognition of true. And are denied, unrecognised and unsupported in our experience of being. At some point our sense of belonging may be so lacking as to effectively collapse in the attempt to manually maintain our 'life'. Whether this is a breakthrough or a breakdown is according to the active desire. Some wake up through crisis, others call game over, or attempt to rally the old cause in a new set of clothes.

But rational is one polarity within a whole. Intuitive is an inner sight natural to wholeness.Because the rational thinks it runs the show, it doesn't recognize it is running upon inner support.

Note that the recognition we are not rational is part of the technocratic management of humans a robotic systems. The post-truth society in which we are basically told what to think via programming of pre-rational manipulations. Humanity is in need of waking up to the heart's communication. Not emotionalism or sentimentality. Not any of the nice correctnesses that hide hate by pretending it is in the hated.
Honesty is recognised in and of the heart. But the 'mind' may be unwilling or afraid to listen and so there is a process over time for the reintegration of that which seems to have split off and taken on responsibilities beyond its capacity.
We do not have to beat our heart or deliberately breathe - but we can put strain upon our heart, and we can lose the inspiration that regenerates the heart. Perhaps our 'part' is not to 'control reality' but rather to learn to get out of (our own) way.
Of course this applies to scientific endeavour just as it does to anything we do.
But the freedom to imagine and think in new ways is prior to the decision to then explore it. test the results and share in the finding.
Arrested development is protecting an old investment - running as a habitual default.

Whatever it takes to get our attention is exactly that. Once we see, we wonder why it took us so long. But it takes whatever it takes. We all have different talents, liabilities and sensitivities, and yet all have belonging in wholeness - even those who enact the roles of the perpetrator, false saviour or manipulative victim.

Human development, dissociation and autism.

This is one of many of my (binra) comments into

in reply to this point on autism as an evolutionary trend

Well even in your own terms you imply that some of what we call evolution is in fact devolving.
Whatever structures are generated, life operates through them. Biota are known to arrange and cooperate in ways that populate our Planet - (and the outside of our space stations). Perhaps in comet dust (plasma discharge) or between planets (water is known to move to our Moon from earth this way).
The "Millions of years steady state Universe" is a popular (or engineered?) idea. I notice the distantiation from creative change or indeed destructive and cataclysmic change.

Much of what our human experience develops as its sense of achievement, is the subjective consciousness that then models its reality to operate AS IF outside it. I see this as a split mind or dissociation from direct awareness of being - and is thus associated with separation trauma. Trauma that calls upon being covered over by the personality construct - which also correlates with the brain serving as a filtering and limiting device. In the spectrum of such a sense of separated self is a rich reflection of variations. It takes all sorts - as they say - to make a world.

While separation conflicts are somewhat accessible to our 'surface thinking' in terms of personal relations - such as Mother and Father issues - the experience of toxic reaction in terms of brain swelling, nerve dysfunction, and persistent pain and confusion are in a sense prior to that part of our development, and associate embodiment (living this life) with fear, pain and isolation. And so we turn in upon ourselves in withdrawal from the source of pain.

This may have something coming down the generations (epigenetic). I have been looking at Family Constellation work and have no doubt that unresolved family conflicts runs an energetic patterning down through generations. Most would probably strongly prefer a futile search in environmental factors than open to things their culture has given them no tools to understand, or support to resolve.

I lean to that an environmental change causes micro biota response - rather than germ theory as the official model of independent external agents of violation and attack. (Which reads to me as a direct remodelling of the pre-scientific fear of evil spirits). Why do some babies/kids/adults have extreme regression or dysfunctional reaction to toxic exposures that others survive, (but may still be degraded in their expression of physical, affective and psychic function thereby)?

I believe we humans are no less part of the language of all life - but our focus in dissociated linear mind excludes or filters this. Separation experience generates terror and rage. Both of these can themselves be feared and suppressed. Intuitive and empathetic recognition of self in other - and other in oneself is threatening to the sense of private or independent control. Particularly when the associations of openness to love become associated with terror of betrayal and abandonment.

My sense is that the psychophysical is a dual expression of one thing, and that while the two are framed in polarised opposition, a sense of reversal operates as 'manual override' of natural impulse. Fear focusses attention in survival mode and extreme and persistent fear sets a basis from which to tolerate and relate to what can be borne. Germ theory (and gene theory) asserted as fact is used to mask toxic culpability.

Perhaps some of us are in fact extremely enraged while others cannot even 'move' (evolve their feelings). Somewhere above this, people think things like 'why cant we all just get along?'. And lets make rules to keep the bad things out.

When is the mind NOT a defence?

When it is acknowledged and embraced in a state of felt connection.

Accepting another as they are, does not mean limiting them to their current sense of themselves from a sense of superiority.
