Mobile and wireless waves are opposite to life

Balmori, A. (2009). Electromagnetic pollution from phone masts. Effects on wildlife. Pathopsychology.

“In monitoring a white stork (Ciconia ciconia) population in Valladolid (Spain) in vicinity of Cellular Phone Base Stations, the total productivity in nests located within 200 m of antennae, was 0.86 ± 0.16. For those located further than 300 m, the result was practically doubled, with an average of 1.6 ± 0.14. Very significant differences among total productivity were found (U = 240; P = 0.001, Mann–Whitney test). Twelve nests (40%) located within 200 m of antennae never had chicks, while only one (3.3%) located further than 300 m had no chicks. The electric field intensity was higher on nests within 200 m (2.36 ± 0.82 V/m) than nests further than 300 m (0.53 ± 0.82 V/m). In nesting sites located within 100 m of

one or several cellsite antennae with the main beam of radiation impacting directly (Electric field intensity >2 V/m) many young died from unknown causes. Couples frequently fought

over nest construction sticks and failed to advance the construction of the nests. Some nests were never completed and the storks remained passively in front of cellsite antennae. These results indicate the possibility that microwaves are interfering with the reproduction of white stork.”[DOWNLOAD PDF of the sci.paper]

The same was observed for plants:

So, is HUMAN so different from plants and animals, so SUPERIOR to them, that these harmful effects do not touch us? I doubt…

The Life in a Bottle

  • David Latimer first planted his bottle garden in 1960 and last watered it in 1972 before tightly sealing it shut ‘as an experiment’
  • The hardy spiderworts plant inside has grown to fill the 10-gallon container by surviving entirely on recycled air, nutrients and water

If only mankind needed just the sunlight to thrive in the same way! :-)

Home yogurt (without yogurt maker)

I have started producing a home made yoghurt, using raw milk from a local farmer. It is very easy to do, very reliable even without some professional yoghurt maker and of course, very ecologic, compared to any (conventional or bio) yoghurt bought in a supermarket (no transportation, no packaging). You can see the article with photos and English translation on my blog: http://brozkeff.net/2012/08/22/domaci-jogurt-home-made-yoghurt/

In the last few years, some smaller Czech farmers started selling raw (non-pasteurised, non-homogenized = live) milk directly to the customers using an automat placed publicly somewhere in the village green or town square, for much lower prices than in the supermarket, and still getting much more money than if they would sell the commodity to the racketeers).

Permaculture, the science, understanding & practice of life

Frank had a visio to restart re-writing a (the?) book – “of course a collectively written book”, with the proposed title “Permaculture, the science, understanding, & the practice of life”, dedicated to Gregory Bateson’s ‘Steps to an Ecology of Mind’. So here it is, a freshly build, fancy Wiki to collaborate on doing that task! http://permabook.brozkeff.net : Feel free to register on the wiki so you can then begin to edit some of the proposed (sub)chapters visualized in the following mindmap. Each line of the mindmap is a separate link on the wiki to start an article. The structure is to be considered as alpha version 0.1 work-in-progress, and is far from being logical, systematic, linear, straight-forward, etc. Anyway, the work should engage also the paradoxical way of “reasoning” :-)
