”Fractality Causes Charge to ACCELERATE! - Since all biologic growth is limited by ability to absorb energy it is self evident the best way to compress that in to nourish biology is FRACTAL! Recursive Feedback=Self Awareness=Fractality. 100 Years of Writing Field Equations, yet has physics investigated whether the same fractal field that causes gravity could also most nourish DNA
Update on the Global Bee Death's- May 10,07- "Colony Collapse Disorder" Report: Organically Raised Bee Colonies NOT Affected (Do you suppose they have more charge coherence -immune health?) also see - http://www.azstarnet.com/allheadlines/176000related below- see appendix - the French experience with bees.. they outlawed the relevant pesticides- may have saved the bees- notice the leyline work with bees presented here is also French..
-This year - I propose we give a REAL "Golden Globe Award". It should go to the group that learns how to make the fractal golden globe ELECTRIC FIELD which allows our planetary DNA to avoid EXTINCTION!! With the Bee's about dead- the (Anunaki) gold miners may have seen their last canary in the cage.
Andy Lloyd's "Gold, The Anunnaki and Global Warming"- rather inept and profoundly uninformed idea is that the way the Annunaki fixed the Global warming on their planet (by mining our gold) was to make reflective balloons to bounce the Solar rays back. Lloyd Pye: "...Scientists have been touting the "particulate gold shot into the upper atmosphere" theory for quite a while now, at least before 1997 when I published "Everything You Know Is Wrong" (1). I mention this as the best apparent solution at that time (p232). Since then, as you point out, the "reflective mirror" and "reflective balloon" theories have appeared, but that is probably to protect the gold more than anything else. I'm not sure which is the best solution, only that gold has been touted for at least a decade."
Seems that it would be good to know the real principle.
Atmospheric heating during solar maximum wind - is due to failure to prepare for compression (fractality). When compression (solar wind) enters what is NOT fractal- THEN heat is created. This is the principle which teaches us how to prepare our DNA, our hearts, our cities and our planet for the solar orgasm ('rapture'). That which does NOT look like a rose - magnetically DESERVES to be toasted (Stupidity needs to lead to death- this is natures beautiful principle of BIOFEEDBACK). For example - the only reason for studying Mayan calendrics is to learn that time- being a name for rotation (in this case Solar) - must be fractal just like space - in order to emerge from chaos. Fractal solution to global warming: goldenmean.info/warming .
The Nephalim (DNA challenged) Annunaki at least knew (better than our local profoundly uninformed geologists) that Gold occurred on Earth where ley lines crossed in a fractal (see pic-"Templar Meridians" fractal- map of Arcadia at goldenmean.info/dnamanifesto ) . This was for the same reason - that gold veins / threads along fractal lines can restore atmosphere. This is the education needed (For the stupid Annunaki analysts above). Rose petal like - Fractality MAKES the gravity that holds atmosphere - it is that simple. I have had 5 year old kids explain it to me - what millions of profoundly uninformed physicists arrogantly refuse to learn (oh - they mumble ...'only what the journals publish' - Of course no one in the journals is brave enough to admit they have ALL been FOOLS!!!!- This emperor Einstein is DEFINITELY the one with no clothes on...)
So... speaking of 'no clothes' ... Lets start with bees and end with sex. (Kind of a ' birds and bees' approach..)
One of the many reasons why global agriculture is basically toast is the death of the bees. Again and again we see reflected the abject stupidity of our biosciences- having not the first clue to the (fractal and phase conjugate) electric field absolutely essential to make life and immune health possible.
"Honey Bee Disappearances Continue:... March 16, 2007 Washington, D. C. - In my previous February 23, 2007, Earthfiles and Coast to Coast AM news updates about the mysterious honey bee disappearances, I interviewed a Pennsylvania honey beekeeper who has had nearly 2,000 of his 2900 hives disappear a 60% loss to date. That is David Hackenberg of Hackenberg Apiary in Pennsylvania. He said he had never seen so many deserted hives that were also left alone by predator moths and beetles. That’s why he suspects some kind of pesticide is getting into the flower pollen and nectar and poisoning the hives. He contacted Penn State’s bee experts to investigate. But to date, there is no answer.... And bees are still disappearing in massive numbers. One Midwestern beekeeper had 13,000 healthy, full hives in mid-November 2006. Those bees began disappearing in mid-December and now he's lost 96% of them. He's facing bankruptcy. This week, one Ohio beekeeper opened up his hives after the winter to find 80% were empty. Over the past six months, massive disappearances of honey bees have been reported in at least 24 states; internationally in Poland and Spain; and it’s still unknown how many more honey bees will be gone as more northern hives are opened this spring in North America and Europe. Right now, dozens of scientists are trying to find out what is causing what they call “colony collapse disorder,” or CCD."
Colony Collapse Disorder Web page by the Mid-Atlantic Apiculture Research and Extension Consortium: http://maarec.cas.psu.edu/ColonyCollapseDisorder.html
We note in the above preliminary map of states affected with bee collapse: It does appear HIGH MICROWAVE TOWER DENSITY use COULD correlate (states like NY,TX,CA etc... ) - we DO know that the LEY LINES -critical to BEE HEALTH - (see below) ARE profoundly conductors of this MICROWAVE. This was measured - before the US Fed nazi like ignorance, pronounced the study of the ATP microwave of living cells 'a threat to national security'. (Now it is those same feds who threaten national security by hiding the truth!). In the bees 'Colony Collapse' the adult working bees (in the field - affected by enviornment / navigating by energy lines?) - are the ones who die- leaving the queen and kids and food all alive in the hive.
SEE BELOW - SCIENTISTS MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MICROWAVE PHONE AND BEE DEATH. What these scientists do not know is the measured correlation (suppressed by the US Nazi feds) which was measured between the ATP (Adinosine Triphosphate) emanation in the microwave of happy living cells- versus how he measured the Earth energy lines conducting that microwave. See the PEYRE lines below (waveguide for bee navigation) - WIDELY known to be critical to bee hive HEALTH! (see article below).
The hypothesis is simple - scientists always thought bee navigation was primarily a solar angle mapping (the 'bee dance'). Now we believe this is complemented by a more sophisticated cellular radio. The radio is the critical ATP microwave that living cells emit- proportional in general to metabolic rate (the US government suppressed the microwave work on this). This microwave further showed is profoundly conducted in a wave guide by the dowsed Earth grid long magnetic lines. The measureable PEYRE 'gold'(grail / fractal) line being one of these (see below). These lines are known to help bees thrive. The Peyre lines are used to carry - the cellular microwave bees use to navigate and communicate (in the same way - this planetary microwave feeds human bliss - and manmade electronic microwave destroys health). The first bees to die are the WORKER bees who depend MOST on this navigation.
Two simple correlations are useful to check this cause of Bee Death:
1. Hives need to be moved AWAY from communications microwave.,
2. Hives need to be placed NEAR the cross points of the PEYRE magnetic 'gold' grid. (Pictures below) Peyre lines are widely known among European geobiologists to PROMOTE bee health. Two prominent groups in Europe who teach geobiology - and the locating of the Peyre lines: French Swiss Geobiologist Stephane Cardinaux geniedulieu.ch and French - Yann Lipnick Geobiology
quote from article: Are mobile phones wiping out our bees? - Scientists claim radiation from handsets are to blame for mysterious 'colony collapse' of bees, The Independent- 15 April 2007 http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2007/04/143727.php
"-It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world's harvests fail. - - They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world - the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops. Late last week, some bee-keepers claimed that the phenomenon - which started in the US, then spread to continental Europe - was beginning to hit Britain as well. - - The theory is that radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees' navigation systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way back to their hives. Improbable as it may seem, there is now evidence to back this up. - - Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) occurs when a hive's inhabitants suddenly disappear, leaving only queens, eggs and a few immature workers, like so many apian Mary Celestes. The vanished bees are never found, but thought to die singly far from home. The parasites, wildlife and other bees that normally raid the honey and pollen left behind when a colony dies, refuse to go anywhere near the abandoned hives.
The alarm was first sounded last autumn, but has now hit half of all American states. The West Coast is thought to have lost 60 per cent of its commercial bee population, with 70 per cent missing on the East Coast. - CCD has since spread to Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece. And last week John Chapple, one of London's biggest bee-keepers, announced that 23 of his 40 hives have been abruptly abandoned. - Other apiarists have recorded losses in Scotland, Wales and north-west England, but the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs insisted: "There is absolutely no evidence of CCD in the UK." - The implications of the spread are alarming. Most of the world's crops depend on pollination by bees. Albert Einstein once said that if the bees disappeared, "man would have only four years of life left". No one knows why it is happening. Theories involving mites, pesticides, global warming and GM crops have been proposed, but all have drawbacks.
German research has long shown that bees' behaviour changes near power lines. Now a limited study at Landau University has found that bees refuse to return to their hives when mobile phones are placed nearby. Dr Jochen Kuhn, who carried it out, said this could provide a "hint" to a possible cause. Dr George Carlo, who headed a massive study by the US government and mobile phone industry of hazards from mobiles in the Nineties, said: "I am convinced the possibility is real."
The case against handsets;Evidence of dangers to people from mobile phones is increasing. But proof is still lacking, largely because many of the biggest perils, such as cancer, take decades to show up. Most research on cancer has so far proved inconclusive. But an official Finnish study found that people who used the phones for more than 10 years were 40 per cent more likely to get a brain tumour on the same side as they held the handset. Equally alarming, blue-chip Swedish research revealed that radiation from mobile phones killed off brain cells, suggesting that today's teenagers could go senile in the prime of their lives. Studies in India and the US have raised the possibility that men who use mobile phones heavily have reduced sperm counts. And, more prosaically, doctors have identified the condition of "text thumb", a form of RSI from constant texting. - Professor Sir William Stewart, who has headed two official inquiries, warned that children under eight should not use mobiles and made a series of safety recommendations, largely ignored by ministers. http://www.infoshop.org/inews/trackback.php?id=20070416231818470
Are mobile phones wiping out our bees? This is certainly a viable reason as to why a bee colony maybe suffering from" end quote
Here are the facts:
1.Immune health and genetic memory in general - is the electric stability of a fractal implosive electric field.
2. Hive memory and therefore genetic survival depend on the orderly passage of this well of memory between generations. Today - standard beekeepers practice is to kill the queen - every time he stupidly suspects the workers are not feeding his checkbook. Without the least regard for the natural way - memory needs to be passed between royal generations. (The Steiner people know better)..
Begin exerpt from - the REAL 'Honey of the Queens" - goldenmean.info/honey (written a decade ago)..
Honey carries the codes of the planets as they beam their energy to earth..
The flowers, being of the highest vibration of energy in the physical world, carry the codes of the geometry that interlocks with the paths of the stars..
The flowers then hold the information, and release it in their pollen and plant nectar..
Then the worker bees of the honey bee kingdom, graciously collect the sacred nectar and pollen which is the food of the worker bees and drones, which becomes the raw material for the queen making royal jelly..
Pollen is the male seed element of the flowers.. which fertilize the plant, and ultimate the honey bee queen.
Royal jelly, in the sense of Gaiaís lactate, is known as bee's milk..
Royal jelly contains the dna and rna, braid of hive memory..
Feeding with sugar water (memory empty:context poor) has been a practice which mysteriously started just before the onset of the world bee destruction arrival of the tracheal mite.
Requeening prevents natural hive reproduction/swarming. Imagine never having the ecstatic rush of the vortex of the swarm dance of the bees, around a free queen. How would your children look if you systematically deprived them of reproductive ecstacy for generations. Eventually, twinkle would be lost and they would fall ill. The DNA must cross in a free fall, so as to catch gravity that way. The DNA must be free in order to learn, in the same way that the character in your dream must be set free in order for you to learn from it. If, instead of killing the queens, we had to catch the new swarm, we would be proving that we could make a home for the hive worth the service provided later by a certain percentage of the sweetness.
Queens were intended to live to the seventh generation, just like Indian memories.. Imagine what would have happened to the Indianís immune system if the tribal council were geneticly destroyed every two years, like the beekeepers do to queens?
There is a Sufi myth which says.... "(end exerpt from goldenmean.info/honey )
After a million tracking dances with the worker bee, in which the bee queen re-cords in her DNA braid the map to the nectar / magnetic sweetness, eventually her DNA becomes fractal enough by braid recursion to the land MAGnetic - to be a library of immune health for the hive. Fractality in the geometry of DNA braid is a PRIMARY mechanism by which the OUTSIDE is recorded INSIDE. This equivalence is PRECISELY survival (not to mention the physics of most all psychokinesis- when your emotion makes gravity , rain etc. As Arthur so well knew).
By irresponsibility repeatedly killing the queen - bee keepers display remarkable (and disastrous) ignorance of what gives a hive immune health : genetic fractality of field.
In that article we explained a bit about the ancient Dragon line tradition - similar to the Bee royalty- of a rite of dance and ('crystal') skull touch ( became BAPHOMET /atbash for Sophia / dragon queen - and indirectly became 'skull and bones') which would electrically transmit a piezoelectric spark from bone - which would induce a swoon / trance in the younger queen being initiated. (Read about it in Dune's / Dragon Queen - 'Reverend Mothers').
She would awaken from that swoon / trance - with newly absorbed memory (charge acquisition by fractal compression) - which included hundreds of generation of tribal memory. Imagine waking from a dream and suddenly vividly remembering scenes in the lives of hundreds of generations of your direct ancestors. Your survival value to your tribe just leapt exponentially forward. In this way - the memory was passed - of the RELATIONSHIP of the map of magnetic lines on the line WITH the symmetry lines correspondingly BRAIDED INTO DNA. (see also Abraxis /birth point: goldenmean.info/healingphase :"Phase Conjugation(phi caducceus)principle of all energy healing;Re-Dox - Place of DIMPLING - connect DNA's fusion electrics with the Earth grid - and the aboriginal SOUL SEEDING POINT: Vivaxis Energies").
Not only is this fractal relationship between land magnetic and the DNA - (Arc-tour and the EL-land are ONE) the immune system of the HIVE - this is ALSO the survival library of the species. Since all DNA is shapeshifting by its braid - the part of us that is immortal (the electric sucubus incubus up the DNA helix) - therefore we are ALL essentially ' of the DRAGON blood'! The very word AG - in Dr-ag and m-ag, is simply a name for the symmetry principle of CHARGE IGNITION (AGni).
Typical western science- bliss dance lost - no bliss - no physics for bliss - no immune system. Sound like Africa to you? Without access to charge compression maxima / bliss / peak experience - immune health fades - cell membranes lose harmonic inclusiveness - AND genepools end. (Book 3: Implosion-Secret Science of Ecstasy and Immortality ). Guess the next casualty of the arrogant stupidity of western science is not just the bees - but the humans.
3. Sensible geobiologists (unlike the stupid beekeepers) know that bees virtually ALWAYS place their hives on a magnetic PEYRE line of at least 2nd or 3rd magnitude- THE GOLD GRID! Perhaps our 'less than informed' bee scientists might want to know why?
|The principle that Earth grid magnetic lines require fractality to support life- can be proven in flux density measure. Thanks to Stephane Cardinaux- for these 2 exerpts from his newest book.>||Our lessons with French Swiss Geobiologist Stephane Cardinaux geniedulieu.ch (and Yann Lipnick Geobiology) began at goldenmean.info/geobiology||See how the white spiral below is a shadow of a 3 dimensional tower Stephane and Yann call a "Telluric Chimney" (Stephan's pic's: goldenmean.info/geobiology ) We notice this looks very much like a living hair follicle in the skin of the Earth!|
Peyre lines - are defined and measured in geobiology (reference here to Stephane & Yann - goldenmean.info/geobiology ) by the fact they are measureably MOST deflected by GOLD. Remember that gold is defined in real physics and allKHEMy - by the fact that gold's fractality of electrons to nucleus is greatest. (Completed dodec icos - chemical d,f - subshell- self similar to nucleus - making it KHEMically 'noble' - uncorrodeable - essentially stable).
The bees need maximally fractal charge enviornments precisely to knowledgeably feed their DNA with charge / field inertia - able to compress efficiently. (Hint- dear Earth - you need to know this if you would like to invent agriculture / medicine and architecture). Charge compression efficiency (fractality) is a prerequisite to the CHARGE DISTRIBUTION EFFICIENCY - which is an the intelligent physics DEFINITION OF LIFE. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that DNA needs particular electrical environments in order to be happy (It just takes someone more intelligent than the billion or so profoundly uninformed - arrogant bioscientists of Earth- who apparently think DNA doesn't care what electric field it grows in???).
So - maybe the bee scientists and the agriculture profoundly uninformeds should get together and notice that their compost piles get hot better - when placed on these energy line crosses. (The farmers who are not profoundly uninformed know that the temperature of the compost pile- equals the quality of the farm.) Why do magnetic line crosses fire up metabolism? (and ignite life, immune health, charge distribution, perception, DNA growth - and everything we call life - not to mention- field effects like climate which use this principle to emerge from chaos)..
Hint: phase conjugation.
Let's look at the pictures: (phase conjugation optimized by Golden Ratio - creating the self-organizing phase sorting electric field called PERCEPTION in blood..)
The Merovee (symbol: the bees) Grail maiden - the prize of the dragon line - has a vision of a swastika - just at the moment when clairvoyant perception reveals the future and the solution to survival for DNA. What's the physics?
Remember how a shaman needing to tune his vision (projected inner hologram) would hold a live animal next to the side of his head.. for essentially the same reason people need tantra and sex. The limiting factor of expanding your aura.. the only way to grow..is electrical area within which to radiate phase conjugation (the definition of perception goldenmean.info/perception + which IS the caducceus symbols of Hermes, DNA and medicine).
Being close to someone elses good blood serves a similar function to the opposing laser collision that makes a phase conjugate mirror possible (enabling the well known time reversal and self correction of laser physics). Understanding this can add to, rather than collapse the romance of romance... We outgrow our need for human sexuality as we complete the fractal and phase conjugate field of our own aura.
To study how this works in your own aura- conscious evolution - study what the Ark of the Covenant - fractal capacitor -delivered to make the gold atom able to be stable BY ITSELF. It 'popcorns' into the fracal monoatomic state- ormes - the spice..'holy communion' white round wafer.. goldenmean.info/goldpowder This was the cash cow of the AkunATUN/Moses- Essenes AND the Annunaki. (Atun / Enki was the technocrat from Sirius A / Aldebaran- his son Hermes/ Thoth was actually beginning to get it that the caducceus of phase conjugation was the ONLY way to electrically fire up DNA).
So I consider the ability to get blissful implosion in blood and glands something like getting inertia into a water wheel..once the implosion is well under way - much can be transmuted. (Marie's letter asked why could we not all get up the MAGic grail in our blood and just FIX our enviornment??)
Initially it is a fragile and delicate process to start the blood on fire with bliss / (gravity making / empowering)- fractal implosive charge compression. This is where the hygiene of energy conserving lifestyle comes in. Avoiding astral parasite places like most churches and bars etc. Eat DNA that has experienced fractal genetic diversity (opposite to the poison monoculture wheat corn soy...) Doing the yoga / kinesthetic of charge acquisition (grace). More on the hygiene: goldenmean.info/sbhowtos1.html The informed will avoid also for example the energy of our custom installed Draco parasite haven - metal hollow death star moon (like you must do in order to cause a seed to germinate). This same lack of charge fractality- due to the opposite of fractal electric FUSION- is the principle REASON the environment (electric field) around nuclear plants is bad for all DNA.
We can all walk on water and see god - after we undertake the discipline to absorb charge. Not to sound like a preacher... but astral hygiene is best studied in the context of how biofields exchange fields of charge. We all think being a vampire is bad - but in fact most people born in cities are entirely accustomed to acquiring their energy from other people. This is in contrast to most persons born in rural nature - who are biologically accustomed to accreting their necessary life force and charge from the land. City people actually often lose the muscles in their eyes which ALLOW them to see horizon (focus at distance). What have they also lost in ability to consume the gift of the long wave of the land's chi?
I do not consider myself an expert on the lucid clairvoyance of the shamanic skill (I have work to do ).. but I do understand the scientific principles of astral hygiene.
We learn much from the drug users - astral holes in the human medical 'GDV' aura studies. These are medical measures of human auras with big holes due to drug abuse. The principle is simple - implosion you don't build from inside- is leaky and unsustainable.
Yet during tantra you can measure the bioplasmic streamers between lovers. We now know the visible sexual energy uv blue fire (blue apples) tantric cocoon is a field effect (electric/uv/microwave + higher) of phase conjugation. This is a life essence plasma field - navigable by those who can focus their own aura (notice how this field effect COHERENCE measured after death- indicates what if anything has survived- and where the ghost is - goldenmean.info/death ).
So if you want to be 'sexy' - cultivate a fractal 'golden globe' charge coherent AURA. That way - the beautiful opposite sex will yearn to phase conjugate with you to create the 'tantric swoon' 'starry' sexual experience. When 2 exactly balanced lasers collide with precise phase (how sexy) the phase conjugate mirror is truly a time travel -out of this world experience (ask ANY laser physicist). The PRINCIPLE is the collision produces a grail fusion - within which cauldron - phase and velocity modes from superluminal and universal sources can embed and share energy: VISION! The yearning you have for sexuality is your DNA correctly informing you that if you do not locate a phase conjugate wave path thru the speed of light- your genetic memory will die. You NEED bliss- charge climax. That is a survival imperative. Your ridiculous supposed school systems - committed a crime against humanity by NOT telling you this.
The sooner western science acknowledges the 'blissful' fractal SOURCE of electric coherence in the aura- (our KAtholic KA - boat into the afterlife)- the sooner we will be able to teach sustainability. Too bad the royal families of the bees had to die to teach us. When will we finally understand the ONLY significant meaning of the term ROYAL: namely biologic (and genetic) CHARGE RADIANCE!
appendix- altho we suggest immune system health for people and bees - requires the presences of charge dense 'fractal' ley line magnetics-
we should not exclude what else weakens the immune system of bees - for example- this note about the chemical problems..(seems France wins on this one)..
-exerpted from: http://home.att.net/~thehessians/bees.html
The French experience with pesticides and bees - This seems to fit with the fungus (really a microsporidian protozoan) theory - the bee immune system is compromised and they became prey to a range of problems. "Mystery Disease? Sounds a lot like poison to me. The real mystery is why we are sitting by like timid dummies while the big corporations spin this one. Cell phones? Really? I am a beekeeper in Central Massachusetts who read about Colony Collapse in February. Something in one of the reports reminded me of a description of how termites are said to be killed by a new class of pesticides known as neonicitinoids. I went to my local farmers' coop, picked up labels from the various insecticide bottles and Googled the ingredients with 'honeybees,' 'sublethal' and 'organic.' A product called 'Merit' containing the neuro-toxin 'Imidacloprid' came up as a soil treatment for fruit trees. Other products with other cute names were being advertised for use on turf to kill grubs (also earthworms.) The labels promise that all sorts of insects, including adult japanese beetles will be controlled for 12 months (read systemic.) Visit your local Walmart and garden center and you will find it on all the shelves. They sell more of it every year according to the Bayer Corporation. You remember Bayer, right? They gave us aspirin and other less pleasant products in WW I and WW II. More recently, BayerCropScience has given us the gift of genetically modified rice. You may have read about it. 'Merit' 'Gaucho' 'BayerAdvanced' 'Admire,' 'Gaucho,' 'Genesis,' 'Platinum,' 'Provado,' 'Leverage,' 'Actara' are catchy little trade names for Imidacloprid, a systemic insecticide that was banned in France after beekeepers staged an angry protest in Paris. Bayer CropScience paid many millions to the french beekeepers and voluntarily withdrew the product without admitting that it was the culprit. Vive La France! They take their food seriously. Shame on us. Shame on the EPA. Shame on the media for not even mentioning the history of the peoples fight against Imidacloprid in France. The more stories I hear about the mystery disease the sillier they get. Soon the media will begin to snicker at all of the alarmists who worry about GMO's and cell towers. They will sigh, continue to wonder and finally forget about it. Already some are beginning to talk about how we can survive without bees as though it were just another problem like surviving without oil. Imidacloprid is the most likely culprit in CCD, even thought there may be other contributing factors. This is the same class of stuff some of us put on our dogs and cats to kill fleas and ticks (see Fipronil and Frontline.) It is much less toxic to mammals than to invertebrates. ( I confess that the ticks at my place have tempted me to put it on my own neck.) Yesterday, I overheard a salesperson in the coop suggest to a customer that he put some on his chickens. What a wonderful idea. We can have it for breakfast in our locally produced eggs. This morning The Weather Channel carried a Bayer advertisement for Merit calling out to those of us who are "sick and tired of all those bugs." If Imidacloprid were being discussed as a cause for CCD, you can be sure that the Weather Channel would be a little more concerned about those ads. That is why it is hardly ever mentioned by name. Instead, the generic term 'pesticide' is used in news discussions of CCD. In fairness, defenders of Imidacloprid say is that it is less toxic to humans than the Lindane that it replaces. Also, this is the only chemical known to kill the wooly adelgid that attacks canadian hemlocks. But many home gardeners are aware of Lindane's danger using it carefully if at all. And, even it there is some role for Imidacloprid, there is no excuse for mixing a persistent neurotoxin into our food supply and placing it in the hands of unsuspecting or careless homeowners. The Merit label I saw carried no warnings about bees even though there is no question that a sufficiently large dose of Immidacloprid is known to kill honeybees. This fact is not in any dispute. The question really is whether there are low, sub-lethal doses that do kill the bees. Bayer says there is no proof of this. They cannot find any traces of the stuff in the dead bees. (Actually, they cannot even find the bees.) Consider, however, the following. The graphic on the Merit label illustrates how the product travels up from the roots into the branches. Bayer claims (and studies confirm) that it is present in blossoms and pollen and that it persists in the soil for at least one year. So the bees do get some of it. If it will kill a really tough Japanese Beetle for 12 months is it really sensible to think that it wouldn't kill a honeybee, known to be sensitive to the drug? Consider also Bayer's own account of how termites are killed by Imidacloprid: the termite's immune system is compromised by the neurotoxin so that it becomes susceptible to the viruses, bacteria and fungi that are normally present and controlled. In other words, their immune systems collapse. If, by chance, the termite is not killed outright, when it flies away from its nest, Bayer's ads say that it will not be able to find its way back. Sound familiar? Sound like colony collapse disorder?"
we addend here some of David Yarrow's original notes on Beez Buzz:

Why Beezz Buzz: the sting
-- and a remedy --
First, a few fractal facts gleaned from Alison Clarke's spring `96
* Doug Beecher, a NYS beekeeper, reports many parts of the country
with 80-90% of wild colonies wiped out by bee mites.
* Honey prices rose from 45 to 90 cents/lb.wholesale in `96. Rental
of colonies to pollinate crops rose from $18 to $35/colony.
* National Public Radio reported this crisis early in summer. One
Midwest beekeeper said she had no problems due to fennel and spearmint
she companion plants near her hives.
* Mary Ann Fraser of Penn State U. says two mites are responsible,
both imported into the U.S. One microscopic mite from England in 1983
lodges in beezz' trachea to quickly choke them. A larger external mite
-- barroa mite -- came in 1987 from Asia. From east and west came a

repellent; 2] grease pads as attractant traps. For barroa mites, strong

harmful to huemans and prohibited in honey producing hives.

So, here's an eco-logical spin to this buzz about bezz decline:
Honeybeezz are to North America what potato was to Ireland:
1] Intruding species from another continent, out of place amid
indigenous populations and genepools;
2] Genetically uniform variety grown by clone;
3] Dependent on nutrient foods not native to local ecosystems
4] Artificially favored byfarming technology
5] Used by huemans as cash crop
Central American potato flourished in 18th century europe's distorted
colonial ecology and economy. Until viral blight obliterated the Irish
lumper in a few brief years.
Similarly, honeybeezz aren't North American natives. brought by
Europeans, without indigenous disease, pests or parasites to keep them
in check, they spread quickly to fill a needed eco-niche. But now a
mighty mite is sweeping them from the land.
Though initially favored, in eco-cycles of time, all intruders succumb
to another. One opportunistic parasite becomes food for another. In
the long run, however, native genepool biodiversity will endure and
In fitting irony, potatoes produce poor pollen and nectar. They
propogate by vegetative cuttings, not genetic cross [X] in seed.
Birth of the white buffalo calf is Nature's cue for indigenous genes
to bee-gin a new cycle of songs.

thin membrane skin. These virgins' venom burns bursts of neur-ill-
logical pain to your brain.
This tale of potatoes and honey has its own barb. The sting of the
beezz' demizze for U.S. guyzz is revealed if you change "honeybeezz" to
"palefaces" in 1-5 etc. above.
Europe's industry civilization isn't native to North America. For 500
years [half a millennium] it consumed the continent's abundance to
digest and distill down to cash and trash.
But there are limits to growth. The ecosystem feeding web can't be
endlessly mine-d. At cyclic intervals, Natural Law and order is
restored -- when strong survive and native revive.

Now a remedy: the essence of cure is in the flower
But bee-fore you bee-gin to stick flowers in test tubes for
biochemical analysis, test this thesis:
I suggest the Midwest defense is best: feed beezz herbal nectars.
Certain companion plants -- in their nectar and pollen -- provide beezz
with not only food, but medicine. Their blossoms also are natural
repellent, antiparasitic, antibiotic substances not in ordinary field
flowers -- so-called "heavy nectar producers" like 3-leaf clover. Like
a neighborhood self-service pharmacy.
Mints have silly, looking funny flowers -- like gaping mouths with
deep throats -- gaudy invitations to a baudy party for virgin beezz to
get high. All are abundant nectar producers with unique essential
aromatic oils [such as menthol] useful to huemans in cooking, medicine
and ceremony. Good insect repellents, too.
Mints include sage, rosemary & thyme [but not parsley] and all square
stem plants: heal-all, bugle, catnip, nepeta, pennyroyal, horsemint,
bergamot, bee balm [also feeds hummingbirds, pollinator among animals],
and a great host more than I can remember....
Many -- like thyme and bugle -- specialize in feeding -- not beezz --
but tiny predatory wasps -- another breed of stinging insects. These
wasps are predators who patrol fields, gardens and hives for leaf-
chewing parasites like cabbage worms, hornworms -- and even mites.
Many, like thyme & bugle, grow at natural geomagnetic vortexes --
vertical flux whirlpools. Others, like catnip & bee balm, grow in other
subtle geomagnetic anomalies. But now is no time for a beeline detour
thru magnetism. That's another tale to spin.
Then there's yarrow -- healing herb of Achilles / divining stalk of
China -- who's flower yields not nectar, but potent pollen -- an
antibiotic innoculant for hives -- especially favored by wasps.

Last, a related suggestion: grow oregano, too. Its pink tubular
blossoms are breakfast to cabbage butterflies, who sip its night's
nectar early after sunrise. Stoned on sweet sex essence, they flutter
bye to cabbage patch to dance in drunken reverie -- make love in
nectar's ecstacy -- lay eggs amid your brassicas.
So, first thing each day's dew, visit your oregano with a net to snare
all these white and yellow dancers -- and avoid the green chewing
cabbage looper. Eschew the need for dipel or ddt.
And don't forget to feed wasps and beezz.

As always, this little word spin is no mere child's play or fairy
tale. This sneak attack on your psyche reveals a moral in both nature
What's good for beezz is a natural for you huemans, too.
If you don't wish to beecum like honeybeezz, succumbing to parasitic
tragedy, then learn to sing like beezz, in harmonies of rainbow melodies
in natural communities.
Don't just use these herbs in food and drink; let them teach you to
change how you think. Don't just make tea of leaves. Gather fresh
flowers to spin their colorful fire essence into water. Gather their
taste of nectar ecstacy to open your inner eye to see.
Pay attention to the complex dances of varied insect, plant, animal,
and hueman on the vast time-scale stage of evolution. In this rich
biodiversity and history, every creature has its place, its moment, its
song, its story to weave into the whole.
Our sickness, confusion and pain is what we "leaf" out -- green
medicine we forgot or never learned of this gift called Creation.
Believe me, after 6,000 volts, shattered back, 6 weeks intensive care,
7 months in rehabilitation, 2 years institutionalization, I know there's
no cure in chemicals -- whether in farming**, food and drug or medicine.
The secrets of real regeneration and healing lie down a path I mark
with this trace of elemental green medicine.
