THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM: A BIT OF ADVERTIZING FUN(?)

This may be one of the most unusual blogs I ever shared on this website. But I absolutely have to share it because when I saw this advertizement, I literally had to do a double take. As many of you are aware, I like to pop in to phys.org every now and then to quickly scan what's going on in our fast changing and increasingly transhumanist world, and one of the headers there that I always check out is nanotechnology. But this time, I'm not blogging about one of their articles. What caught my eye this time was in that little bar that occasionally displays advertizements.

Yes, you read that correctly: I'm blogging about one of their advertizements. A commercial.

After looking at it, my first reaction was to chuckle. Not only because we had indeed entered the transhumanist era, but we are already seeing commercials for some of its products, in this case, pure nanoparticles with no chemical contaminants. These particles have been treated with lasers and are suspended in purest water. Granted, we're not seeing commercials on tv or hearing commercials on the radio for "pure nanoparticles" with no chemical residue, to cure this or that ailment. We're not yet seeing any commercials for Roto Rooter's one hundred percent guaranteed blood vessel plaque-remover nano-bots in distilled water solution, nor are we reading about nano-life extenders... yet.

...But we are reading an advertizement.

And then, my eye strayed to the right, and I froze. See if you can see why:

Nanoparticles by Particular

On the right, note the four bottles with solutions of pure nano-particle silver (the yellow colored bottle), titanium(the blue colored water), platinum (the black colored water), and finally, gold, the red colored water....

I froze, and the chuckle in my throat choked and came out more of a gurgle. "You've got to be kidding!" I said to the empty room. This surely has to be one of those fun coincidences, one of those things that makes you go "hmmmm...."  The reason I was going "hmmmm" in this case was because of something I had written about in The Philosophers' Stone: Alchemy and the Secret Research for Exotic Matter, for many alchemical texts that claim "success" in the confection of that most marvellous object record that there is a specific color sequence associated with the process, from black through white and green and yellow, and finally, to the "pure gold" of the Stone itself, which is in some texts, a deep purple, and in others, a deep red. And all this after, in some texts, burning gold to an ultra fine powder and suspending it in solution.

Just makes you wonder....

See you on the flip side.

    What? Didn’t you know Solomon was the drug dealer of Pharoahs and Kings?
    Got food? Well, that seems to be what Mr. Laurence Gardner says in ‘Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark’. I wonder what HIS origins were?

    Marketers read books on Alchemy too. This product is the Philosopher’s Stone!

    If a little color sequence has such an effect on you, you should see Chartre Cathedral!

  2. funny how the color of my pee
    in retort
    in my basement
    followed all the colors but the flask.

    All I got was a humunculus.

    Now what?

    You see transhumanism writ large all over Hollywood. It’s defintely in the new fiction thrillers. Reading Nexus by Ramez Naam right now/Sam smiled back. Faceprinting code identified them, used her her tactital contacts to superimpose glowing names, ages, threat levels…smells of dozens of bodies inundated her sharpened senses..
    It’s about the near future where the experimental nano-drug Nexus can cause humans to link together, mind to mind.
    In another non-fiction work there is this intriquing word, “transhumanance'(from trans, over, plus humus, ground. About 10,000 B.C., all nomadic groups followed seasonal movement of their herds of wild or semi-wild animals, a way of life that became known as transhumanance. The point made is also on-spot. Life on the move with semi-domesticated animals represents a peculiar adaptation. In some ways like hunting; it is pursuit, and the animals set the pace. This mobile resovoir of food was a step between the hunter-gatherer way of life, and the agricultural revolution, with the domestication of animals for milk and meat.
    So the transhumanism of today, looks like steps of a “staircase”, that appears “fated/wedded” in the overall structure – through the lense of time/dna.

  4. This is normal gold. Like tiny bricks of 10 to 100 atoms, in a bell shaped dispersion curve. Alchemical gold has monoatomic gold whose nucleus is highly charged and deformed, with no valence electrons. Refer to David Radius Hudson or Alexander Jenner (reachable on facebook).

  5. And, before reading your books, I would not even mention this, but . . . .

    That IS a German company, isn’t it?

  6. So you almost got knocked out of your chair gurgling concerning the color sequence! That’s good for it startles us back into more awareness of what the hell is going on around us that we take too much for granted say like the oxygen in the air? We sometimes find out maybe during our low moments we aren’t just fooling ourselves after-all? (little grembilens called doubts are hiding everywhere just like the army of micro-organisms around the house. And their all out to get us, ha, ha!)

    No — go back and read your Marshall McCluhen. He said it’s as if our brains are on the outside of our skulls because we are gaining such a sensitivity to advertizing stimulus we don’t even know it anymore. Maybe the linguistic message gets lost or isn’t effective but I can attest to the color/sound vibrations most certainly do effect one’s moods. Moods in turn affect attitudes!

    Advertizements don’t come cheap. There are seldom mistakes in their presentation. Every little thing in them down to the tiniest details are closely examined. No, my guess is the color sequence was DELIBERATE? (getting us used to (desensitized) to future plans we may possibly object to? Maybe?

    Anyway, consider the advertisers’ just gave you a little ‘WINK’ from the big boys? And no this isn’t some schizophrenic ‘ideas of reference!” (they just gotta be reading your material. If not their not as good (meaning wide coverage) as they only ‘think’ they are?

    Yes, ago McCluhen said ‘Shut down all the radios and turn on all the TVS and in a short while the ‘population’ will be pacified! Reverse the sequence and the drums of war or activity is energized. Now, don’t you think (I know you do) they’ve gone a little further in their sneaky techniques over the years. Of course they have!

    It’s sometimes pleasant to get reaffirmations from readers even though the ANGLES are different. After all that is what us SQUARES are all about, ha, ha!

    Have a good Thurst-day today and don’t look down cause they just might have an advertisement looking back at you on the floor like they do coming down the escalator in South Station. (We’re swimming in a freaking saturated envirnement and they complain about those lonely billboards disturbing the scenery out on the highways out West! Let me clue you their disturbing more than just SCENERY!

    1. oh boy this stuff gets remedial, all dna is made up of ONLY 4 building blocks in varying sequencing.

      FOUR VERTICLE LINE WITH A HORIZONTOL LINE THROUGH THEM IS THE SYMBOL FOR AN ATOM…..That goes right back to and was known 12000 years ago, globeki tepe.

      The human robot speaks…..
