Kachasu Could Be The Panacea to Curb Coronavirus: Particularly in Africa

Research elsewhere has shown that coronaviruses can be inactivated within a minute by disinfecting surfaces with 62-71% alcohol (Journal of Hospital Infection, Volume 104, Issue 3, pp246-251).

This offers a little hope for African countries for there is a strong often lethal brew called Kachasu aka Lutuku. The beverage is commonly illegally brewed in DRC Congo, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia. The university of Zambia (UNZA) found out that the brew contains 20-30 % alcohol. However many would argue that the alcohol content is more than that. Besides the UNZA results other studies concluded that the beverage contains as high as 70% alcohol. Rather than labelling it as a an illegal drinking beverage this this could utilised as a panacea and save lives.

Coronavirus: Covid-19

Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, virologist or a chemist therefore refrain from any experiments whatsoever after reading my words. – The fact of the matter is hydrogen peroxide can kill Coronavirus within a minute. While it’s poisonous to consume a higher dosage of it, swallowing small amounts of it (3% ) is usually not dangerous (National Capital Poison Centre). That said the medicine think tanks around the globe would have tried all sorts of experiments to find out if it’s a viable cure of Covid-19. Soon or later they will find a break through to stop it. The problem is it’s highly contagious and very stubborn- can survive in temperatures below 56 degrees Celsius. Some studies found out that coronaviruses, including Sars and Mers can survive on metal, glass and plastic for as long as nine days, unless they are properly disinfected. However some can survive for longer- about 28 days in low temperatures (Gray, 2020). It can also be transmitted in faecal (feces) matter. Scary that given that most surfaces are by and large covered faecal matter, most folk don’t wash their hands after visiting the bathroom particularly for number two. A recent study tested touch screens on 8 different McDonald’s locations, two in Birmingham and six in London. The study found fecal bacteria on every one of them, enough to put people in Hospital (UK Metro, 2020). In this digital world of touch screens the transmission of the virus is prevalent. The supermarkets could still spread the virus unless unless certain measures are imposed such as all shopkeeper must wear protective gear and shopper should maintain a certain distance apart.

Sex Transmutation: Special Dedication to Stephen Worley

What is it? It’s simply transferring one form of energy into another. Pointedly, according to the Oxford Dictionary of English- transmutation is the process of changing one state of being into another. Sex transmutation is the switching of mind from physical expression to thoughts of some other nature like creativity.

The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind (Hill, 1937). Because of the dearth of knowledge around the subject, this state of mind is said to be generally associated with the physical interaction or emotional support (the physical aspect is the reason why disabled folk like me are more often than not, relegated to the undateables).

I digress, from the perspective of sex transmutation, other emotions as well can be transmuted for example fear can be countered and channelled to achieve bold successes. Harness fear and live a life with no limits and regrets, the greatest risk is the risk not taken. Another example is hate it could be redirected or transmuted into bliss. Hate is the energy wasted that could be transformed to be a positive force.

The emotion of sex is principally associated with three things 1) sustenance of mankind, God promised to multiply our seeds as the stars of the heavens 2) maintenance of health, it has been said that the emotion of sex boost the immune system among other things 3) the transformation of mediocrity into a genius (Napoleon Hill, 1937), the power to tap into sources of superior intelligence. From this perspective sex from the right source, has the power beyond gleeful merriment or monkey business. The third point is what i seek to juxtapose with the story of Nicola Tesla. Out of all the sources of mind stimulation The emotion of sex is arguably the most intense as well as the most powerful stimuli, it can transform one into the status of a genius as noted by Hill. It has been said that what sets apart high performers from middling ones is emotional intelligence.

Sex transmutation is powerful. MacKenzie Bezos who is an American novelist and philanthropist was the wife of Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon for almost three decades. After their divorce in 2019, MacKenzie received a 4% stake in Amazon, which was worth about $35 billion at the time. From my point of view this was a justified divorce settlement for she could have made Jeff who is arguably the richest man in the world alive.

Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires when driven by this desire man develop incessant wild imaginations until the objective has been achieved. This includes will power and creativity. That said when harnessed and channeled properly it could be used to stimulate creativity in other areas.

The desire for sex is natural and should be expressed to enrich the body in spirit and mind. Which is why the bible acknowledges that a man be hitched in his young life.

Proverbs 5: 18 states that “Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth”. The fountain could be the source of our being.

If not given this outlet it will seek its way out in other ways. It maybe mortified or controlled for a time but it’s very nature will relentlessly find means of expression. If not transmitted into creative effort it will manifest itself in some less worthy effort. Kudos and count yourself blessed mate if you finally cracked the code and found a way to give the sex emotion an outlet of creative effort. Blessed are also the men and women with a huge sex drive hoping that they will master the art of sex transmutation. Have you ever wondered why most man start to do well or start to build their empires in their late thirties to 50s? They would have finally settled and mastered the art of sex transmutation.

The extensive research based on the most successful man in history found out that. 1) men of greatest achievements are men blessed with developed sex natures, men who have learnt the art of sex transmutation. 2) men who have accumulated great fortunes and achieved outstanding recognition disciplines eg Art, literature, science and innovation, architecture etc were motivated by the influence of a woman. The emotion of sex contains the secret of creativeness. It’s worthy-note that the world back then was a patriarchal empire.

Detract from a man’s sex prowess he becomes docile or will give blind obedience. For example, in Africa in the rural areas it is customary to castrate bulls and use the ox to help in the day to day work of subsistence farming business, hence they become easy to control. While the untouched bull remains virile and pugnacious. In the past men where castrated for various purposes like guarding women’s quarters, warranting total trust and servitude .

What’s a genius?, An exceptionally intelligent person or a very talented man with a remarkable skill. A person who has discovered how to increase the vibration of thought to the point were he can freely reach out to the sources of knowledge not available to the ordinary vibrations of thought. From my point of view I think a genius cannot be made or taught, it’s a natural talent. Giorgio Vasari a 16th century Italian painter and historian once said Michelangelo, was sent to earth by the great Ruler of Heaven to serve as an example of what a true artist should be (Vasari G., 1968). The idea that a genius is born was popularised by by Francis Galton, a prominent nineteenth-century scientist, who happens to be a cousin of the famous biologist- Charles Darwin. However according to Michael Gladwell in his book ‘Outliers’ a genius can be made and it takes 10000 hours (Gladwell, 2008). What Gladwell claimed is debatable because it could take longer or less time depending on the person’s aptitude.

Geniuses are developed through the sixth sense. This sixth sense is creative imagination. The faculty of creative imagination is rarely used by the majority of people in their lifetime, if they do it will be by happenstance. Those who use it intentionally and understand its functions are called geniuses.

Other Ways to Tap Into Sources of Superior Intelligence ⁃ It should be noted however that there are various ways to tap into the sixth sense.

The faculty of creative mind is the direct link between finite mind of men and infinite intelligence. It has been said that all revelations in realm of religion and all discoveries of basic and new principles of invention take place through the faculty of imagination. When ideas or concepts flash through one’s mind they come from 1)infinite intelligence 2) subconscious mind 3) from another persons mind who just released the thought or pictured the idea or concept through conscious thought 4) from another person’s subconscious store house

The creative thought functions well when the mind is vibrating at an exceedingly high speed, when brain action has been stimulated.

The great writers, musicians and artist alike, become great because they rely upon a still small voice from within through the faculty of creative imagination. It is a fact that people with keen imaginations come up with the best ideas through inspired epiphanies. It has been said elsewhere that humans are creatures of emotion and imagination.

Some great thinkers close their eyes before making a decision- with the eyes closed they are able to tap into a source of superior intelligence. Some are weirdly inspired by alcohol and other sources. A German-American called Henry Charles Bukowski was an alcoholic who was always drunk and deadbeat, published the book ‘The Post Office’ in 1971 which became an instant best seller. Despite the fame and fortune he did little to change his ways. In his words “Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead” (Bukowski). Also one of the best ever poems, The Raven was written by Alan Edgar Poe in 1845, he is said to have been under the influence of alcohol “dreaming dreams that no mortal man has ever dreamed before”. Winston Churchill attributed his successes to the naps he took amid World War II. The list goes on. Peace and tranquility is also key to creating conducive spaces to experience epiphanies, these can be found in holy sacred places of worship like temples. Where spiritual leaders can receive unadulterated revelations.

Marriage is widely seen as a normal thing, its particularly great to those who have mastered the art of sex emotion among other benefits of marriage. However there are some exceptions like Nikola Tesla. Tesla was a Serbian American Inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer and a futurist. Tesla was born 10 July 1856 and today the 10th July is A Day of Science Around the World. Deservedly so after 20 significant inventions including the Tesla coil, Alternating Current (AC) and discovery of the rotating field. What an impressive resume for a college dropout right. However he died boasting 15 honorary doctorates all over the world and could speak 8 languages.

Unlike other great minds who attributed the development of their minds to their partners, the guy had an aversion towards feminine taste like earrings. He vowed never to engage in a sexual relationship with a woman fearing that women would detract from his brain power. Instead he had an exceptional relationship and adoration for animals.

“This pigeon was the joy of my life, I loved her as a man loves a woman. If she needed me, nothing else mattered. As long as I had her, I had my life goal. It sufficed for me to think of her, to call her and she would fly over. I understood her and she understood me” spoke Tesla.

As an inventor he had a unique way of coming up with new ideas. He used the faculty of imagination.

“My method is different. I do not hurry with the practical task. When I get an idea, I immediately try to develop it in my imagination. I change the construction, improve it and get it moving already in my thoughts. It is irrelevant to me whether I move by turbine in thoughts or test it in the laboratory. I even notice when something is going wrong. In such a way, I can quickly develop and perfect the thought without having touched a thing. I once came upon the novel “Abafi” of the famous writer Josika. In a way this novel awoke my lethargic force of will and I began practicing self-restraint.” Nikola Tesla

Though Tesla thought that a relationship with a woman was a bad idea he ironically attributed his intellect and gift for invention to his mother at all times, likewise she was an inventor herself. Also by his own admission he acknowledged that all the great achievements of man had been inspired by his love and tv devotion to woman. Man has aspired to great things “because some woman believed in him, because he wished to command her admiration and respect”.

“I had always thought of woman,” says Mr. Tesla, “as possessing those delicate qualities of mind and soul that made her in these respects far superior to man. I had put her on a lofty pedestal, figuratively speaking, and ranked her in certain important attributes considerably higher than man. I worshiped at the feet of the creature I had raised to this height, and, like every true worshiper, I felt myself unworthy of the object of my worship.

“But all this was in the past. Now the soft-voiced gentle woman of my reverent worship has all but vanished. In her place has come the woman who thinks that her chief success in life lies in making herself as much as possible like man–in dress, voice and actions, in sports and achievements of every kind.” Tesla

It could be said that he held women in high regard at first and thought he wasn’t worth of their attention hence reluctant to commit himself into a relationship but he then loathed the notion of the rise of the matriarchal empire. He speculated that perhaps man are useless and would gradually drift into irrelevance save for the continuity of the human race.

Steve I know your wife Lorna was always supportive of you. She inspired you to achieve great things. Also until your last breath you was working for the church. You drilled into my skull what it takes to become an Editor In Chief, our arcanum. Rest in peace genius.

Will Prince Harry Experience the State of Nirvana?

Hope Prince Harry will experience nirvana. There been so many rebellious and iconoclastic Princes in world but the one who comes to the fore of my skull is Siddhartha Gautama. Who lived in 5th Century BC. Gautama (The Buddha, the founder of Buddhism) was a young prince born into immense wealth in present day Nepal. 

I presume he grew up living in a bubble of opulence and ease. Kept away from the day today business of the common people he became curious to know more and he decided to experience the life of ordinary folk. 

That said he decided to give up his cushioned life as a Prince. At first he endured poverty, sleeping rough but that didn’t make him consider returning to his father like the parable of the Prodigal son, he was. This would have been the easiest thing to do when in need. Since living in abject poverty was hard for him he desired “Middle Way”. Meaning living between the two extremes. Metaphorically, a life without starters and deserts. 

After six years of living this “Middle Way” life searching for his sense of purpose he is said to have found enlightenment while meditating under a Bodhi tree. Therefore it could be argued that the fundamental principle of Buddhism is that life is suffering. I explained on one of my previous blogs. After his, enlightenment The Buddha spent rest of his days teaching others about how to achieve the spiritual state like he did (Nirvana).

While Prince Harry is unlikely to venture the suffering route (never will he live in Westminster, London or Weston, Toronto) , hopefully he will experience enlightenment of some sort. 

However the path the young prince and his Mrs want to chose is unprecedented basically they want to skip between two worlds like Alice in Wonderland. 

Habits

⁃ We are what we repeatedly do hence excellence is a habit said Aristotle. Habits shape our lives, you are who you are because of habits, they are consistent unconscious vital patterns in our lives. For those who sustained a head injury like me, it’s difficult to break bad habits but it can be done. However it’s also possible to develop new positive habits.

⁃ Habits can either make us or break us. They have tremendous impetus, breaking deep rooted habitual tendencies (such as procrastination, impatience, selfishness, and so forth) can take not only tremendous effort but also unprecedented will power. Such negative habits detract from human effectiveness. A wisemen once compared habits to gravitational pull. Which is a vital component on this Earth. I digress, without it, all of us will be looking like astronauts and cosmonauts having swollen heads coupled with chicken legs. In zero gravity, fluids move upwards into our faces and head hence giving astronauts a ‘puffy face syndrome’. Other effects of zero gravity include muscle atrophy and osteoporosis.

⁃ Therefore a lift off requires considerable effort to break through the the gravitational pull but once space is reached and after taking a different dimension, less effort is required.

⁃ Having said that habits are such powerful forces and if people relentlessly pursue positive habits which can add value to our lives. The world will be a better place for it. In conclusion

Richard G Scott said “We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day”.

Since i learnt of these words I never quite grasped the meaning of them until now. Our lives are characterised by our habits. Similarly our failures and successes in life are the products of our habits. Its the new year folk. Let’s choose to develop good Habits. Happy New year.

⁃ Habit is the product of knowledge skill and desire

Success and Causes of failure

Think and become who you set out to be

⁃ Success comes to those people who allow themselves to become success conscious. Simultaneously failure comes to the people who allow themselves to become failure conscious. Napoleon Hill said

“think rich and grow rich”.

⁃ Practical dreamers never quit

⁃ Faith removes limitations

⁃ Poverty and riches are the product of thoughts.

⁃ Knowledge is potential power. It is effective when put to use through definite use and practical plans. It has no value unless something is gained through its application. Academic Degrees and qualifications alike merely represent miscellaneous learning. Kanye West said

“they tell you read this, read that and after you graduate you are still stupid”.
