Don’t drink soda! Study shows soft drinks rapidly increase cell aging. Today in science we found out that a giant comet just passsed Mars by 1/3 of the moons distance to Earth and this happens every 1 million years. Transhumanism is now not just in a sci-fi book you read, it is being developed into technology with ‘under the skin cell phones’ and ‘dust chips’. Geomagnetic reversal, or the switching of  the two poles, North and South can change places in just 100 years. Fascinating!

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. “Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does.” They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley
