Genes. Not important.

One of the great puzzles of evolutional biology is what induced certain living creatures to abandon solitary existence in favor of living in collaborative societies, as seen in the case of ants and other social, colony-forming insects. A major characteristic of so-called eusocial species is the division of labor between queens that lay eggs and workers that take care of the brood and perform other tasks. But what is it that determines that a queen should lay eggs and that workers shouldn’t reproduce? And how did this distinction come about during the course of evolution? Evolutionary biologists have now found a completely unexpected answer: one single gene called insulin-like peptide 2 (ILP2), which is probably activated by better nutrition, stimulates the ovaries and triggers reproduction.

Inequalities by genes.

The best proof that genes are not the ones defining our life.

We are all brothers.

Especially because we don’t seem to be. [Valia]

Autism as a privilege. Not a disease!


Could drama workshops help children with autism-spectrum disorders? Results from a pilot study called Imagining Autism suggests this might be the case.
The research involved 22 children aged between 7 and 12 and consisted of one 45-minute session every week for 10 weeks. During this time, groups of four children entered an enclosed themed environment, such as a forest or outer space. These environments were designed to engage all senses simultaneously, using lights, sounds, puppetry and interactive digital elements.

Trained performers used improvisation techniques to encourage the children to engage creatively with the environment and each other, both physically and verbally. The hope was that the sessions would help develop the children’s communication, social interaction, and imagination skills – the “triad of impairments” seen in autism. (1)

Autism most of the times is related to excessive communication and creativity!
Autism most of the times is related to hypersensitivity to sensory input. (23456789)
Autistic children may have problem distinguishing fantasy from reality. (1011)

So what?

What makes us so high and mighty to name all these symptoms “DISEASE”?

We have lost the connection with our self.
We have lost the connection with the world around us.
We have lost the ability to be creative.
We have lost the right to have fantasy like children only can.
We have become alone and cold.

And we treat everyone different as “sick”!

We have named white black.
And black white.
But white is white.
And we must not be afraid to look at it.

WE need to be in the forest again.
WE need to feel again.
NOT the children with autism.

WE need to be human again.

These children are happy in their world.
And we try to make them unhappy by bringing them into ours. [Valia]

Let’s stop trying.
Let’s just love.

US movies, Justice and the Cowboys [SPOILER ALERT… for everything!]

I recently watched “The Vanishing” with Jeff Bridges and Kiefer Sutherland. … The movie promotes the idea of personal vengeance as so many other american movies. It shows a hero who is just in so great danger that he must kill the bad guy on the spot. [Valia]

Think about it. How many times have you seen the bad guy go to court? How many have you seen him dead by someone who is NOT a law officer?

What we actually think is hard to hide. And the Americans do not even try to hide their cowboy roots. Our duty is at least to achknowledge it. To know it. To consciously pay attention to it. Justice is NOT killing someone. Justice is a institution which has grown to full maturity for thousands of years in Europe. And it is time for the US to learn that simple fact.

Think hard every day. Try to understand what you actually see. You are an active citizen. Not a passive reciever!

Master Chef as a means to destroy your eating…

Master Chef is the new fashion in TV. Great chefs show us how to cook good quality food. But in reality they do exactly the opposite. Thanks to Valia I realized that Master Chef is just another marketing tool which helps the “system” (whatever that is) to promote the “fast food” notion into our houses! In the old days people used to spend hours cooking their food.

Now Master Chef tells us that we must cook within 30 mins, with only the last 10 mins devoted to cooking the meat or in general the main ingredient of the plate. Jamie Oliver cooks in just 15 mins!

It seems that Prometheus died for nothing after all…

And let us not forget the utter disregard to the gift of our fellow God. Prometheus almost died to give us the fire and we are now holding contests on how… raw we will leave the meat because “this is how it should be cooked”.

Sure. If I didn’t know how to cook meat perfectly without destroying it, I would too be selling to everyone the opinion that what I do is “how it should be done” [Valia]…

And now our children will have the dream to cook. What our mothers did WHILE doing 10 other things AT THE SAME TIME, will be the highest aspiration and goal that many people will have for the coming years…

Fast Food on TV disguised as “quality food”!

Hypocrisy is usually hidden in the most obvious places…
