The Dark-eyed Junco is back

If you remember last year, we had a Dark-eyed Junco nest in the fuchsia on the front porch. We noticed early enough so that I could get a time lapse sequence of them growing up. This year, they’re back! It’s not as convenient this time. 

Hopefully no one will shut the door to hard!  Fortunately, the kids are no longer at home so we don’t get the traffic through the front door like we used too. If all goes well, these little birdies will fly the coup my next month!

Fermented Cashew Cheesecake

Wow! Who would have ever thought that something as ugly as a cashew could be transformed into a decadent desert with a little fungal help! If you haven’t made the time to brew up some Rejuvelac so you can make a fermented nut cheesecake, well, you just haven’t lived! Really. I’ve now made three and everyone that’s tried it has nothing but praise (they like it – really).

After starting my first batch of Rejuvelac (a couple weeks ago), I did a little research to figure out what to do with it. When Googling around, I found The Raw Seed website. Hidden on that sight is an amazing fermented nut cheesecake recipe! It’s got some great pictures too, so I highly recommend stopping by (The Raw Seed Cheesecake). They’ve also got some videos there, but I still haven’t found the time to watch them all the way through. I guess this one is so easy that the videos should have been about 90 seconds long!


Does that look good or what? That was the bulk of my lunch today!  Yes, I know it’s a quarter of the cake! But it’s only an 8 inch spring-form. This slice is probably about the size of a slice of ‘real’ cheesecake you’d get at The Cheesecake Factory. It’s also loaded with oils so I give it an A+ for keeping me warm in the winter.

This is the third one that I’ve made so far and I’ve already been asked to make a fourth – for a wedding party (of all events). So I’ve learned a bit about it that I can actually share – more than simply the pictures. So here it is…

Process (Recipe):

To start, you’ve got to create the Rejuvelac. The Raw Seed has a little video that outlines the process, or you can look back at what I did here and here. Making good Rejuvelac is key to making this work.

I’ve also soaked 2 cups raw cashews over the day and rinsed them well.

Now, following the recipe outlined at The Raw Seed, I take the two cups soaked cashews, the teaspoon nutritional yeast and 2/3 cup Rejuvelac and blend until it’s smooth as butter.

This is what you see in the bowl. I took the picture as I was wrapping it up so it can ferment for the next 24 hours. I’ve also got an old nut milk bag that I’m wrapping it in so as to keep bad stuff out.

The next day, it looks like this:

Notice all the little ‘air’ pockets around the edge of the bowl. The normally heavy feeling ground up nuts are light a fluffy. It’s spongy!

Next, we process up the crust.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that I’ve got ½ cup almonds, ½ cup pecans, ¼ cup raisins, ½ teaspoon vanilla powder, 1 Tablespoon honey, 1 Tablespoon coconut oil and more than a pinch of salt. This all gets blended in the food processor until it starts to stick. At that point, you press it into a oiled spring-form pan. Looks something like this:

Now we get out the blender to mix the fermented nuts with 2/3 cup liquid coconut oil, ½ cup honey, ½ teaspoon vanilla powder and 1/8th teaspoon salt. Even though the nuts are light a creamy, it’s hard work for the blender to mix. Turn it on and do just that. It’s going to end up rather thick, so you’re not going to get it to run out of the blender. This is something that you’re going to have to dig out.

Once you’ve got it all in the spring-form, smoothen the top and give it a gentle giggle to help it settle. You don’t want air pockets in the cake. Here is what you should end up with.

The pecans give the crust a strong appeal that’s complemented well with caramel. If you have a little latte syrup sitting around, drizzle a bead back and forth over the top as an accent. When I did this, everyone marveled at the presentation for they don’t know me as a chief at all!

This is another desert that I highly recommend. And it’s much easier on the digestion than you might think when you think about eating a cake of all nuts. The Fermentation really changes this. After having tasted fermented cashews, I’ll probably never want them any other way.

Let me know what you think!


Ok.  I’ve made a few slight modifications to this cheesecake recipe. For starters, I’m now using a full size cheesecake spring-form. The little 8 inch just doesn’t cut it. It’s not BIG enough!

For the crust – I really like pecans and dates. The flavors seem to go better with the fermented cashews. I spell it out like this:


  • 3 cups cashews (soaked for 8 hours)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup rejuvelac

Split into two halve and blend each half independently. 3 cups cashews is too much for a blender. 1 cup is not enough, so look at running almost two cups, remove a cup or more and then add the remaining nuts. Place this mixture in a bowl, cover with cheesecloth (or nut milk bag) and let stand for 24 hours.


  • 1 cup almonds (soaked overnight and let sit)
  • 1/1 cup pecans straight from the freezer
  • About 6 large medjool dates (makes for a sweeter crust)
  • ½+ tsp vanilla powder (get the best you can find)
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil

Run it in the food processor like shown above and press it into the pan.

Back to filling:

  • 1 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2/3rds cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/8th tsp Sea Salt
  • Plus fermented cashews

Melt the coconut oil and place it on the blender first. Add honey and then the fermented (bread dough) cashews (then add the remaining ingredients). The order is pretty important. You want the oil first so that as things get spinning it get lubricated. Placing the cashews in first makes it really hard for the blender to suck in the oil.

I guess my spring-form pan is about 12 inches. The resulting cheesecake will have a very thin crust and a cake that’s a bit over an inch high. It’s perfect for the person that complains about large treats after dinner. Just cut it small and it won’t seem too big to anyone!

Are Melatonin & Serotonin related to The Philosopher’s Stone?

I absolutely love being able to remember my dreams when I wake up in the morning. Of all the crazy things to wake up with, this morning I remember that in my dream I was being told that (basically) – everyone knows that the Philosopher’s Stone is made from Melatonin and Serotonin. I was impressed that Melatonin creates the gold vibration and Serotonin creates the silver vibration.

Can you believe it?  Of all the things to wake up impressed to blog about – Melatonin and Serotonin!

Being the curious person that I am, I quickly dug up some information on both.

Melatonin (pronounced /ˌmɛləˈtoʊnɪn/ ( listen)), also known chemically as N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine,[1] is a naturally occurring compound found in animals, plants, and microbes.[2][3]

Many biological effects of melatonin are produced through activation of melatonin receptors,[5] while others are due to its role as a pervasive and powerful antioxidant,[6] with a particular role in the protection of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA.[7]

In mammals, melatonin is secreted into the blood by the pineal gland in the brain. Known as the “hormone of darkness”, it is secreted in darkness in both day-active (diurnal) and night-active (nocturnal) animals.[8]

Melatonin has been the furthest thought from my mind, but it is very interesting that it is linked to the Pineal gland. Anyone that as researched the pineal gland knows that it’s linked to spirit. From Wikipedia:

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the “third eye“) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions.[1][2] Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.

I searched for “Pineal gland soul” and found this little write up from really quickly:

While  the physiological  function of  the pineal  gland, has been unknown until
recent  times, mystical  traditions  and esoteric  schools, have long known, this  area
in the middle of  the brain, to be the connecting link… between the physical and
spiritual  worlds.

So here we have a light activated gland in the body that produces a molecule during the night that is linked to dreaming and the producing the molecule of my dream. Ha!

As a side note, here is a little bit regarding what happens to the pineal over time with a typical person. From Wikipedia:

The human pineal gland grows in size until about 1–2 years of age, remaining stable thereafter,[16][17] although its weight increases gradually from puberty onwards.[18][19] The abundant melatonin levels in children are believed to inhibit sexual development, and pineal tumors have been linked with precocious puberty. When puberty arrives, melatonin production is reduced. Calcification of the pineal gland is typical in adults.

The key part that I wanted to point out here is that if you’re a typical person, your pineal gland will most likely fall victim to calcification. In my experience, ORMUS will break down the calcification enabling dream functionality and, most likely, Melatonin production. At least, it enhances dreaming which I would link to a healthy functioning Pineal gland.

Back on track here with ‘the hormone of darkness’.


Production of melatonin by the pineal gland is inhibited by light and permitted by darkness. For this reason melatonin has been called “the hormone of darkness”. Its onset each evening is called the Dim-Light Melatonin Onset (DLMO). Secretion of melatonin as well as its level in the blood, peaks in the middle of the night, and gradually falls during the second half of the night, with normal variations in timing according to an individual’s chronotype.[36]

Besides its function as synchronizer of the biological clock, melatonin also exerts a powerful antioxidant activity. The discovery of melatonin as an antioxidant was made in 1993.[20] In many less complex life forms, this is its only known function.[40] Melatonin is an antioxidant that can easily cross cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier.[6] Melatonin is a direct scavenger of OH, O2, and NO.[41] Unlike other antioxidants, melatonin does not undergo redox cycling, the ability of a molecule to undergo reduction and oxidation repeatedly. Redox cycling may allow other antioxidants (such as vitamin C) to act as pro-oxidants, counterintuitively promoting free radical formation. Melatonin, on the other hand, once oxidized, cannot be reduced to its former state because it forms several stable end-products upon reacting with free radicals. Therefore, it has been referred to as a terminal (or suicidal) antioxidant.[42]

So, as it turns out, Melatonin is produced by the Pineal gland in highest concentrations while we sleep and functions as an antioxidant which can react only once. Let’s remember this and follow a link to Melatonin Receptor Agonists.

Activation of the receptor can lead to ion flux inside the cell.[1][4]

Melatonin is involved in regulating immune responses in both human and animals through activation of both MT1 and MT2 receptors.[2][4] MT1 and MT2 receptors are widespread in the eye and are involved in regulating aqueous humor secretion, which is important for glaucoma, and in phototransduction.

Digging deeper, we follow the link to Phototransduction and find:

Visual phototransduction is a process by which light is converted into electrical signals in the rod cells, cone cells and photosensitive ganglion cells of the retina of the eye.

Leaping to photosensitive ganglion cells:

Compared to the rods and cones, the ipRGC respond more sluggishly and signal the presence of light over the long term.[2] They represent a small subset (~1-3%) of the retinal ganglion cells. Their functional roles are non-image-forming and fundamentally different from those of pattern vision; they provide a stable representation of ambient light intensity. They have at least three primary functions.

  • They contribute to photic regulation of, and acute photic suppression of, release of the hormone melatonin from the pineal gland.

Once again, we’re linked back to the Pineal gland. The interesting part is that the Melatonin seems to help with the electrical functioning of specialized nerve cells that link back into the brain. No wonder why people call this the ‘third eye’! It would make sense that if the Pineal gland is functioning fully (not calcified) it would be giving off its hormone (melatonin) and the OTHER light sensitive cells of the body would function to their fullest ability.

What about Serotonin? From Wikipedia:

Serotonin ( /ˌsɛrəˈtnɪn/) or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Biochemically derived from tryptophan, serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system (CNS) of animals including humans. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being; therefore it is also known as a “happiness hormone” despite not being a hormone.

Approximately 80 percent of the human body’s total serotonin is located in the enterochromaffin cells in the gut, where it is used to regulate intestinal movements.[1][2] The remainder is synthesized in serotonergic neurons in the CNS where it has various functions. These include the regulation of mood, appetite, sleep, as well as muscle contraction. Serotonin also has some cognitive functions, including in memory and learning

Serotonin is mainly metabolized to 5-HIAA, chiefly by the liver. Metabolism involves first oxidation by monoamine oxidase ( MAO ) to the corresponding aldehyde. This is followed by oxidation by aldehyde dehydrogenase to 5-HIAA, the indole acetic acid derivative. The latter is then excreted by the kidneys.

So, we’ve got a ‘hormone of darkness’ and a ‘happiness hormone’! Turns out that this ‘happiness hormone’ is also a neurotransmitter.

Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that transmit signals from a neuron to a target cell across a synapse.[1] Neurotransmitters are packaged into synaptic vesicles clustered beneath the membrane on the presynaptic side of a synapse, and are released into the synaptic cleft, where they bind to receptors in the membrane on the postsynaptic side of the synapse. Release of neurotransmitters usually follows arrival of an action potential at the synapse, but may also follow graded electrical potentials. Low level “baseline” release also occurs without electrical stimulation. Neurotransmitters are synthesized from plentiful and simple precursors, such as amino acids, which are readily available from the diet and which require only a small number of biosynthetic steps to convert.[2]

In other words, without Serotonin, the functioning between our nerve cells would not function very well. I’m sure they’d function to some degree, but to function well, there must be Serotonin.

 Notice the similarities between this molecule and Melatonin above. They have the same base carbon structure with slightly different endpoints.

Thus, what we should see here is that both Melatonin and Serotonin are molecules that enhance human sensitivities. The Serotonin molecules act specifically on the nerve cells so impulses can travel to the brain and Melatonin acts to enhance photo sensitivities which also carry information to the brain.

Do you remember that in the post The Art of Seeing – can you see auras? I talked a bit about seeing, but had no idea that Melatonin might have a part in it!

By now I’m sure you’re asking, what the heck does this have to do with The Philosopher’s Stone?

To make this connection, you’ll want to read through The Book of Aquarius. You can find a copy here or simply Google the title and I’m sure the first hit will give you the location where you can download the PDF file for free (or view the HTML).

In that write up regarding making The Stone, the author talks about distilling urine. The reason is that it has ‘life-energy’. In order to make the stone, you start with urine.

Well, if you’ve looked through the ORMUS websites enough, you’ll notice that people have distilled ORMUS from urine. Here is a link to a brief description of that process at There is a comment there that reads:

If there is ORMEs present there will be large bubbles to swell up sometimes filling the entire flask before rupturing, this is your personal ORMEs with the memory and refinement that your body has already performed.

So, at this point, we know that urine can contain Melatonin, Serotonin and ORMUS. The best time to find Melatonin in the urine is just upon waking up. The author of The Book of Aquarius states:

The best urine to use is that of a dark yellow color, since this means there is less water and more body, which is useful in the First Part of the work. Therefore the best time to collect the urine to be used for making the Stone is the first time you urinate in the morning.

Yet he doesn’t make the link that the body is releasing Melatonin the first thing in the morning. I would guess that urine secreted during the day would be lower in Melatonin and higher in Serotonin. Specifically when someone is really happy or in a state of bliss – or, more specifically, the next urination after this state when the body goes to filter it out.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, is that ORMUS type minerals are present in the urine and that they are already attuned to the human vibration. The ORMUS that comes out of people already vibrates at the correct spin that’s needed for humans. Or, in other words, the high spin state that other ORMUS atoms must be spun up to is the same rates that the ORMUS that leaves the body is spinning at.

This leads to the growing phases (duplication, fermentation) that are talked about regarding The Stone. During this phase you have to ‘keep the energy flowing’ by simulating human life and add substances to the mixture that can absorb the energy. Specifically, as I’ve talked about in previous postings, when the superconductive atom is in sync with its source, energy will flow through the atom into its environment. Thus the superconductive ORMUS atoms that come out of a human are used to charge other atoms that are capable of being superconductive.

Sound simple? Lol…

Also, when I woke up this morning, I was impressed that Melatonin will produce the red stone and Serotonin will produce the white stone.

Ok. Well, I guess it’s time to get to work. I might have to do a little shopping, by hey, what else is there to do on Easter!

If you’re inspired to follow the directions outlined in The Book of Aquarius I’d love to hear about it. I believe there is truth in the authors words even though he had not finished making the stone at publish time.

Good day.

High Energy and Life Force Atoms

My adventures over the last couple weeks have once again focused my attention on quantum physics and how the spin state of atoms is linked to life. Reflecting upon it now, it seems almost painfully obvious that human life has evolved to use the energy of high spin state atoms and that life exists just about everywhere based upon this energy in atoms (and molecules). The concept that we are all one with our environment really does make more sense today than just a few short weeks ago and, today, I get to blog about it!

The basic idea here is that high spin state atoms vibrate to energy sources that correspond to life force and this life force is unlimited when you resonate with it (just like the energy that you can tap from a superconductive source).

I’ve heard it said over the years that crystals are amazing energy sources. I’ve always questioned this notion, but have always agreed that crystals can focus energy. Or, maybe a better way of describing this is that crystals create a disturbance in the flow of natural energy that it can appear to concentrate it or focus it. Yet, the idea of it being high energy matter is what I tend to disagree with.

Let’s look at the concept of crystallization of water. When energy is removed from the water, the movement of the molecules slows and the molecules fall into a natural latticework that forms ice. If you add energy to this latticework of water, the spin of the atoms accelerates changing the molecules properties making it liquid. If you continue to add energy, the water molecules spin fast enough to overcome the static charge that holds them in liquid form thus allowing the molecule to dissolve into the air. The more energy, the faster the spin, the less crystalline the substance is.

Water is always considered so special. Because of this, it’s worthwhile to consider other forms of matter that are affected by energy sources other than common heat – sugar fits the bill nicely.

We all know that the process of photosynthesis produces sugars from common elements through the addition of sunlight. As we have seen in previous postings on this blog, the sunlight energy is absorbed into the atoms that form the sugar molecule and in the process of doing so, changes the properties of the atoms thus allowing the new molecular component to form. This addition of sunlight is key. When that energy is added to the mixture, it creates a higher energy state molecule than what originally existed. Adding energy in this way ‘spins up’ the atom allowing it to function differently from its previous form.

This ‘spinning up’ of the atom is very important. If atoms couldn’t absorb this extra energy, where would we get our energy from? It’s a bit puzzling, while at the same time fundamentally obvious. We basically live off the idea that atoms can absorb and release energy.

Now if we think about it a bit and speculate, we might find that atoms in the highest spin state would be atoms that are superconductive and infinitely full of energy. Likewise, atoms that are in their lowest spin state are effectively devoid of life. They spin so slow that they crystallize.

Yet the missing link is the connection that these substances have in the body. It has already been found that when body tissue is analyzed, some percentage of the tissue is not assayable – ORMUS type material. I would contend that if the death were natural (due to old age) the tissue analysis should represent the minimum amount of ORMUS that can support human life. At the same time, if a vibrant healthy human where to have tissue analyzed, we would probably find that it has a lot more ORMUS type material in it!

The assumption that I’ve made here is that superconductive atoms (atoms in their high spin state) provide resonate links to energy sources that help maintain life. In other words, we all know that when you consume sugar, the body breaks down the sugar to release the light energy stored there to power our bodies. What if the light energy equivalent is extracted from superconductive atoms that resonate with zero point energy sources? Thus, if we fill our bodies with these superconductive atoms, we’d find that we would have more energy and a general higher sense of well-being.

As it turns out, this is exactly the claimed effect that people experience when taking ORMUS. They feel a better sense of well-being and they report regaining a youthful vigor of higher energy and stamina.

To me, the ingestion of ORMUS based material not only enhances the common physical body, but it allows for the growth of the different bodies. If you’ve studied auras at all, you’re aware that the body emits light. We also know that when the body breaks down sugar (or other things) light it also emitted. But what if the body consumes high spin state atoms that resonate with zero point energies so as to also give off light? This would empower the body with another source of energy. This would enrich the aura beyond what is typically seen. As it also turns out, people have taken karelian photos of people before and after consuming ORMUS and the aura grows dramatically.

So the real question is; can that resonance be consciously derived? Well, I believe so.

I actually believe this is something that people should strive for.

I also believe the particles that we take in can lose or gain spin based upon the characteristics of your spirit and the efficiency of the body. Because our bodies release energy from sugars (and other molecules) it could use that energy to spin up other molecules to achieve the superconductive state of resonance. At the same time, the high spin molecules to be broken down into elementary spin elements by draining the energy from the atom. This would mean that if the body is super efficient, extra energy could be used to create superconductive atoms in the body. If the body is not efficient, just the opposite would happen.

The more I study this, the more I believe that there is also an emotional and mental connection that plays a part with regards to maintaining the resonance that’s needed to synchronize the superconductive elements to their source. I have the feeling that the emotion of love is a key resonance feeling that links the atoms to the energy source.

I feel that the emotions and mental connections also have a role to play in the draining of energy from atoms that we consume. If we overburden our bodies with waste and burnt out atoms (molecules) that can’t be discarded fast enough, those dead molecules (that no longer have energy) crystallize throughout the body causing disturbances in the energy flows that influence (in a negative way) how the body works. Negative emotions drain energy. Negative emotions don’t setup a resonance to the superconductive energy sources. Rather, they tap energy from the molecules within the body causing them to lose life force (lose spin).

So, in a way, it really comes down to what you eat and how you act. If you eat foods that take huge amounts of energy for the body to process, the gain will be minimal. Also, if you allow yourself to constantly expend energy on negative energy draining emotions, you will see that extra amount of energy quickly drained from your system.

This is where OMRUS comes in. If you think about this in relations to ORMUS (or white powder gold), the substance is a concentration of minerals that are in their pure spin states. This would include some that are superconductive (pure). If someone ingests these atoms, you would seem to have a better chance of increasing the number in the body so that any resonance that is made (to the source) will be amplified because of the sheer number of atoms that resonate all at the same time. One might think that if the right balance is found, one might be able to seriously feel the connection (resonance point) when it’s made and the energy starts to flow.

If nothing else, the ORMUS minerals are known to be angstrom size atoms that are bio-available for molecular use. Knowing that these minerals also dissolve crystallizations in the body, ORMUS could be thought of as a solvent that helps remove the dead-lifeless molecules that have built up over time. One would believe that the removing the ‘dead weight’ would increase the efficiency of the body and possibly help to restore a youthful feeling. This, also, would be beneficial to one’s quality of life.

Ultimately, life is based on the flow of energy. If that flow of energy is high and the body is efficient, small amounts of high spin state atoms should have a big affect on someone. Likewise, if the body is low on these substances, someone might find themselves just barely living and having to deal with lots of crystallization in the body that creates energy flows that are inharmonic.

Life requires high spin state atoms. High spin state atoms resonate with ‘the source’ – they are connected to the pure source of energy. This is what we want to connect too! If we can make sure we have the raw resources in our bodies and our minds enhance the effect through consciously creating emotional conditions where resonance is achieved, we should be able to tap into the zero point energies via these superconductive atoms.

I’m sure that in doing so, the ‘life’ that we would experience would be nothing like what we witness today!

As a side note, white powder gold has been referred to as the philosopher’s stone for (nearly) forever. The idea of finding a substance that turns things into gold doesn’t really make sense on a spiritual level. The trick would be to take the crystalline metal (gold) and turn it into superconductive atoms that are in the high spin state that radiate life. If the goal is to create crystalline metal, the goal is effectively – to strip the atoms of their energy – kill them.

The quest for life is the quest for high spin atoms. Include them in your life and find a way to get them to resonate to their source. I’m willing to bet that the results will be astounding.

Let me know if you meditate about this too!

ORMUS Compost Tea

I have to report, that it turns out, that it’s really easy to make compost tea. I’d be willing to be just about anyone could do this, for how hard could it be to help something rot! Lol. I certainly didn’t have a problem at it!

And hey, it doesn’t smell all that bad! I was expecting that rank smell of old horse urine or rotting pond water, but it really didn’t get smelly at all. I’m sure that’s why the recipe calls for a bubbler.

So, here is what I did:

I used a few handfuls of good rich compost, to which I added some fermented wheat (that I’d used for Rejuvelac) and a cup of bunny alfalfa. I wrapped all that in the paint strainer bag that I got from Home Depot and suspended it in the bucket. All the while, the bubbler was running to aerate the water. Then, I added a couple tablespoons unsulfured molasses and about the same ORMUS (sea salt precipitate).

After a couple days I ended up with this:

The yeast really went to town! There was so much activity that I promptly brewed a second batch using the same bag.  All I had to add was the molasses and ORMUS. It turned out just a frothy.

So far I’ve only added these ten gallons to the garden. I’ve only got little starts and the weather has been hiding the sun. Feels like winter, but the days are long. I’m sure the few plants that I’ve put out are all mixed up. Hopefully by the end of the month we’ll start getting enough sun that the plants will get out of survival mode and into grow mode!

I’m starting another five gallons today but I’m not using the sprouted wheat this time. I’m going to find out what kind of single cell organisms are going to grow this time without me priming the pump.  We shall see…

Good day.
