A dance of a very clumsy and megalomaniac elephant in a china shop.
I forgot to include the link to my article about genetically modified people. https://www.globalresearch.ca/yikes-brave-new-world-genetically-modified-people/5781670
If they had called this an executive odor it might be more accurate. Marcellus said it right, something is rotten in the state of....the world.
I'm a Naturopathic Doc who mostly practices homeopathy - a pseudoscience according to Wikipedia. The premise of homeopathic therapy - and many other holistic therapies - is to stimulate the inherent healing mechanism. This process can induce healing of one's ailments as a byproduct. The idea being the smartest dude in the room when it comes to healing is OBVIOUSLY our own body's homeostatic mechanisms.
The goal of many holistic systems is to work WITH the system, not try to control or improve on a system that we barely even understand. The dudes you are describing here, Tessa, are jamokes who live largely in the corridors of their own minds. Problem is, they also have curried significant power and their delusions include controlling all of life, definitely not just cells.
They are of the sociopath/psychopath class who imbibe deep the waters of narcissus. Our mindless incentive system essentially deifies such parasites. These are the deluded that think you can just engineer life to in your own twisted image. You can just control all the variables and everything goes your way. Tis a very outdated paradigm that just won't die, no matter how bent it often is.
Alternative medicines work because they are essentially "listening" for foundational patterns and applying interventions to strengthen the system specific to the disease in question.
Science has some powerful insights for sure - some wonderful understandings. Diagnostics and many interventions in acute care and many diseases can definitely be lifesaving using conventional approaches. However, when it comes to complex disease, conventional medicine finds itself at a remove from its wheel house.
By this I mean, you can apply directive/manipulative interventions in the short term - often with awesome results. However, complex chronic multmorbid disease is an entirely different animal.
Here conventional medicine falls by trying to control hypertension, headaches, constipation, depression, PTSD - all with separate pills/interventions as if the body is not an integrated whole. Sure, there are people satisfied with this approach. But once folks see there is a better way, they rarely go back to their bags of chemicals.
Anyway, this is all really to say that these guys have reached the epitome of delusion & hubris - that one can control complex systems. This is a dying form of medicine that these very powerful, but very out of touch folks just can't grok.
Let me see if I've got this right? Close to 12,000 people die of malnutrition everyday on planet earth in our little neoliberal capitalist paradise where the "miracle of the market" is busy "raising all boats." The latest count shows 70,000 people homeless next door to me in LA county. That's adults, kids, pregnant moms, you name it all without basic shelter, much less food, medical care and basic security. Our global oligarchy doesn't give a damn about such daily normalized human suffering and death as long as it doesn't interfere with the wealth machine that keeps them in power - but we're all supposed to believe these same immoral oligarchic clowns can't wait to give us all hi tech "implants" and connect us to "AI" and turn us all into immortal cyborgs? Oh, yeah, and now just for us they're going to - "write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology" - because they love and care about us all so much!
I don't know about you, but I just can't wait for our brand spanking new and exciting transhuman future where a combination of the latest drugs and my AI connected implant will make me really really believe that the rat I'm barbecuing under a freeway overpass is actually a sirloin steak at a 5-star restaurant.*

Bless you, Tesa! You are a sane and lovely voice in an insane world.
Tessa, you're a smart human being among mindless drones, but it's time to recognize that bull moose loony is the new sane.
If our cells and biologic processes worked on a system of 1's an 0's, we would not be alive. It is not possible to reduce life to 1's and 0's.
you should see how many biotech labs they are building in Boston and Cambridge and all the surrounding areas where I live. it's frightful. there are several in development and they are going up quickly
That first paragraph reads like a prologue to the novel, The Windup Girl.
Which is of course a gritty, ugly, dystopian fiction about a future where everything's been genetically engineered out the wazoo.
Thank you, Tessa. I chose to start at the end because the beginning was too horrible. Prepare for Hard Times indeed. We have arrived. This was very inspirational text and I will try:
"Prepare for the hard times that are coming,” Courchene said. “Don't waste time in trying to fight a system that will not change. Rebuild yourself, your families and your nation, with your way of life the Creator has given you."
“Stop thinking negatively and fill your mind with positive thoughts,” he continued. “Depend on the land again, for all that you will need to survive. Prepare for the times when people will come looking for help. Prepare to receive the land with your leadership as the true stewards of the land."

"With all this said, it is important to note that AlphaFold has meaningful limitations.
Its predictions are not always as accurate as more traditional experimental methods. It predicts one stable conformation per protein, but proteins are dynamic and may change shape as they move through the body. Edge cases—like intrinsically disordered proteins and unnatural amino acids—can trip AlphaFold up.
AlphaFold generates predictions about individual protein structures, but it sheds little light on multiprotein complexes, protein-DNA interactions, protein-small molecule interactions, and the like—dynamics that are essential to understand for many biomedical use cases. And because (like any AI system) AlphaFold has learned to make predictions based on its training data, it may struggle to accurately predict the shapes of unusual new proteins, including de novo protein designs not found in nature."
So well said. Thank you for pointing this one out. I had a similar “we are not theirs” feeling wash over me when watching Biden say they were losing patience w us months ago. I felt like i was watching a nervous dog barking. I was like “oh wow. He’s a desperate puppet and they are not the boss of me or my family.” It was a peace after a period of low level anxiety at the aggressive 🥕 pressure. We. 👏 Are. 👏 Not. 👏Theirs. 👏 SING IT!!! Louder for people in the back. And in the words of Dr Christina Parks January 2022, “We don’t want their f🤬 Maxine!!” 🎤👂🙌
Frightening how matter of fact the language used is. They want everyone to believe it’s all innocuous.
Insane we were, insanity now exceeded.
I can understand this.
Before my personal "great awakening" and since my childhood, I was a huge fan of Sci-Fi.
A great deal of science fiction, most of it, going back to its early days, is predictive programming.
A significant portion of the population is under the spell of transhumanism via such propaganda. Myself included, as a young person. I still orbit in those circles in the online community. They're by-and-large convinced that such progress is humanity's best future. They're the ones who "trust the science" of allopathic medicine, NASA, cybernetics, climate change, transgender, AI, etc.
Jay Dyer has done numerous lectures about this predictive programming. I've followed him for years.
Somewhat related note, it was my "spiritual awakening" as a born-again Christian that finally released me from the spell. Amen.
As someone interested in promoting the need for a more Heart-led Humanity, your capacity to gather relevant information taking us into the artificial synthetic, AI led Transhumanist future is truly phenomenal. Do you work 24/7 with no sleep???? I wish I had half your ability to source, synthesise and share this amazing content. I am in truly in awe of your service to Humanity's awakening at this time. Thank you so much, Tessa x
