  1. I too struggled with this [original] concept of x^0=1 as my logic dictates to me that x multiplied by itself naught times would equal naught. i.e. x*0=0 x^1=x*x? x^2=2(x*x)? 4^1=4*4=16 4^2=2(4*4) = 32 4^0= 4*0=0 I know this is not correct, I simply don't know where the 1 comes from.
  2. Thanks for the replies. I erroneously wrote that plant 1 grew with signs of distress, I meant to say, no distress. I tend to agree that there would hardly be enough radiation in microwaved water to kill a plant, especially a geranium as such a plant could figuratively grow in a pot of crushed concrete and be watered with urine and still grow. I'd say the plants were grown as cuttings and the 3rd plant simply never developed a root system to support it's life.
  3. Before my aunt died of cancer, she performed an experiment with geraniums and water boiled using a jug and a microwave. A control plant was used also which was watered with tanked rain water. 1. Control watered with rain water from a poly tank grew with signs of distress. 2. Same water as above only boiled in a jug, allowed to cool then used to water plant 2 3. Same water as for control, only this time it was boiled in a microwave oven, used to water plant 3. Plant 1 and 2 grew normally, plant 3 showed signs of distress within 2 days and was dead by day 7. Conclusion: unable to draw a conclusion as the experiment has not been repeated, the death of plant 3 could have been for any number of reasons. If anyone is interested, please repeat the above experiment as I shall do, using a common plant that grows easily in your area. My aunt did it to see if microwaved water is toxic or 'dead' water. She was inspired to do the experiment following radiography for cancer on her liver.
  4. Although I fail to be able to reference the experiment, I recall reading of an experiment with vitamin c where vit c was injected in to the main blood supply of a tumour. Doses where near toxic, whatever the toxic dose of vit c is, and the tumour was destroyed. unfortunately I have only ever heard of this one experiment. Perhaps it was so successful that it threatened the billions of dollars drug companies make from chemo drugs or it was simply never repeated.
  5. My knowledge of this topic stems from experimentation with hydroponics, or at least a version of hydroponics. I successfully grew some plants in pots with soil as the growing medium, so for that part, the experiments were not 100% hydroponic as I used soil and watered them with water each morning and evening and weekly I feed them with a soluble fertilizer. For light, the 1st 2 times I did this over three months, I several everyday fluorescent light bulbs One along the top, over the three plant and one each side of each plant, 7 bulbs all up. I never let the plants sleep for 2 weeks after the first 'real' leaves appeared, in other words, I left the lights on for 24hrs a day. After 2 weeks, I alternated the lights on a 12/12 hr cycle, 12 on and 12 off. This caused the plants to flower. I let the flowering plants grow under 12/12 light conditions for 3 months and the result was good. In another experiment, I came into possession of a proper grow light. This light bulb was much brighter, 400w, and was as close to the suns normal ray as could be manufactured. Growth under this light bulb was amazingly fast. Unfortunately, I do not have the exact specs of that bulb but it 'outshun' the ordinary bulbs tenfold as far as growth goes.
  6. Thanks John, I did consider your suggestion, however, I thought that the process may be similar in some way to the bioavailability of morphine, for example, where at least half of the drug is destroyed during 1st pass. Anyway, I appreciate your response, obviously I need to read more about how the body absorbs different vitamins. Regards, Warren
  7. Hi, Apparently, the human body can only absorb about 65mg of vitamin c when taken orally, making mega dose (1000mg) tablets nothing more than a money spinner for drug companies. Vitamin C is an interesting vitamin to me and I am wondering if one were to inject via i.v. 1000mg of vitamin c, would more of it be absorbed and would it be dangerous to inject 1000+mg of vitamin c? [vitamin c is available as a non prescription injection for horses] Regards, Warren
  8. 1. Just wondering if the world, as we think we see it, actually exists or is it all just a sum total illusion created in our brains as a result of all the neuron; chemical messenger; synapse etc... in other words, the general working of a brain and what we are told and [most of us] learn throughout life? 2. Is it 'healthy' to think that everything is simply an illusion shared by the majority and created by the brains of that majority and to reduce reality to a sequence of neuron firing etc...? I have attempted to rephrase the above, yet, that's about as simple as I can put it.
  9. For some reason, the quote button does not work for me and that is probably due to my computer illiteracy rather than a problem with the site. Given that, in general, my post above is more than likely going to be interpreted as a bum wrap for psychiatry, it most certainly was not intended to do so. I intentionally wrote the post in that format to spark debate. Reading through history, there has long been a kind of unspoken war between physicians; psychiatrists and specialist surgeons. I must say that I would really like to know more about this science that has the power to predict, so much so, as I would like to specialise in that science and subsequently win the lotto 4 times a week. Science teaches us to 'presume' [predict] nothing and question everything. One may have a theory mapped out, however, only through testing the theory via experimentation, a theory proves nothing other than a philosophy. At the end of my last post, I did make a 'kind of' disclaimer in saying that there are many people existing in the world today whom are directly benefitting from the field of medicine 'labelled' psychiatry and are doing so via the method administered. Additionally, there are probably just as many, if not more, people existing in the world whom are quite unaware of the situation with 'Jon Does' down the road and his treatment by psychiatry. If Jon Does was not being treated, he may well go on an 'unpredictable' spree of firing bullets around the place at people he suspects to be those tormenting him and so on and so forth. I think that in any area of medicine, there is yet much to be discovered and that makes life exciting and that also may be why medical practitioner's have that label as they are always practicing medicine. I am yet to find a surgery etc... where the Dr is labelled Medical Perfectionist. [implicating that that Dr has perfected medicine and we can all put down our biro's and go to bed, nothing left to discover or practice in medicine] Human behaviour is fascinating. Thank you, Warren.
  10. If a question has no logic purpose, what logic causes people to read them and subsequently respond to them?
  11. Mythbusters experimented with this exact topic based on that movie and they proved the myth busted, in other words it wouldn't work and didn't work in their experiments. It may be possible mathematically but not practically.
  12. Some antipsychotic medications are administered at intervals up to a month apart as a depot injection with the drug usually suspended in oil, usually vegetable oil such as sesame seed. I am curious as to why other drugs that are administered orally and slowly release over 12 or 24 hours, such as morphine sulphate contin and hydromorphone in Jurnista , have not been developed into a depot injection or an implant similar to contraceptive implants. I kind of understand the implications with drugs such as the above not being available as an implant because some people would dig the implant out to access more of the drug or sell it. It has long evaded me as to why these drugs have not been made into a depot injection. It would totally eliminate diversion. At a guess, depot injections of strong opioids may be unstable and may come with a high risk of overdose. Perhaps this topic belongs in another area, I hope I have not violated any rules. Thank you.
  13. Is it possible that, in this modern world where we are surrounded by radio waves from mobile phones; radio and television and even microwave ovens from which some waves escape, the brain and thought process is influenced in any way?
  14. Hi, I have searched the internet in an attempt to better understand what is going on with the left side of my neck and back. During 2011, I had 2 surgical procedures performed on my cervical spine in an attempt to relieve pain caused by entrapped nerves at c5/6 and c4/5. The first procedure involved discectomy at the above points, cages inserted, braced and fused. I was almost pain free for a while, then the pain returned. I had another ct scan done and although the radiologist and my gp could see no neural problems, I took the scan to the neurosurgeon whom performed the above procedure. Straight away he could see that the cage at c5/6 had collapsed slightly on the left so he agreed to perform a hemilaminectomy and take bone from around the nerve exit. That procedure has eliminated pain down my arm to my left thumb, however, the left side of my neck and the scapular muscles in my back are always at a pain score of 2 and that score increases with certain activity. I am prescribed gabapentin 600mg; endep 50mg; Jurnista 32mg and panadol osteo [ a slow release paracetamol formulation for those in other countries where it may be known my another name] As mentioned above, I would like some direction to a site or book that will help me better understand why the left side of my neck; my left shoulder and a particular point between my shoulder blade and thoracic spine continues to cause me a considerable amount of grief. I understand that any advise given on internet forums can only be general in nature. I have spoken to the neurosurgeon about this continued pain and he has told me that nothing more can be done surgically Does anybody here have enough experience with the nervous system that might explain why I feel this pain all the time and can anyone explain where the nerves that cause the scapular area to spasm constantly. Before the neurosurgeon performed the second procedure, he used a guided injection of local anaesthetic with some steroid as a diagnostic tool. Whilst the local was working, I was pain free on that side, as soon as the anaesthetic wore off, the pain returned. He had no faith in the steroid providing any long term relief, it was all simply diagnostic so that he knew which nerve exit was to be operated on. One explanation is that it is all referred pain from my neck, which sounds plausible yet why can they not operate and relieve the pain? Another possible explanation could be that the problem lies in the thoracic spine and the nerves that exit there, is that possible? Thank you,
  15. At a guess, it's among the medical specialities for those whom don't like blood and those whom like to control people. Psychiatry is the governments best friend. I have noticed that, for the most part, psychiatry prescribes medicine that slows people down [antipsychotics, minor and major tranquilisers] Rarely do we see stimulants prescribed, except in children and some adults with add or adhd. They rarely test for a diagnosis except to monitor ones response to a drug, if that fails, they use another drug until one finally works. It has been reported that often, people respond equally as well, sometimes better, when prescribed a placebo. The best psychiatrists are neurologists as they have a better understanding of the workings of the brain and nervous system. Having said the above, many lives have been saved and changed by psychiatrists yet few if any have been cured.
