Public Meeting

Can More Advanced People Transmute Less Than Nutritious Food?


Q:   In the past, you have discussed the ability of some people to transmute a food that isnít good for us into something that isnít so deleterious. Is that something that only more advanced people are able to do? Do such people eat whatever they want?


A:   The attitudes of the average person affects his digestion, and his belief that a certain food will happily improve his health actually tends to make it be more beneficial to him. At the higher end of the human spectrum, Adepts have exceptional control over their biological processes and can specifically manipulate them mentally. Our bodies are great chemical processors, and there are ways we can modify that through thought. Moreover, people who are more highly evolved are more sensitive to things that are not good for them and are able to avoid them better.


Q:   Adepts still watch their diet?


A:   Certainly. As long as you occupy a body, you have to eat things that give you the vitamins and minerals that are essential substances our bodies cannot produce. They come in through our food; so everyone has to try to eat the things which provide all the basics. A problem, of course, is finding foods these days that arenít dosed with insecticides and herbicides and other commercial chemicals.


Can One Develop Allergies to Insecticides and Herbicides?


Q:   Do you think that insecticides and herbicides, if taken in for a long term, can make you allergic to certain foods?


A:   A person can definitely become sensitized to such chemicals, but I donít know that one would necessarily become sensitized to a vegetable onto which pesticides have been applied in a sort of ďguilt by association.Ē If there is a specific vegetable or fruit one eats that frequently introduces the same foreign substance, which is deleterious to the body, after a while one could develop a distaste for that food without knowing why. There are certain forms of body testing done by some physicians who practice kinesiology by which the brainís subconscious knowledge of what foods we are sensitive to can be clearly revealed. Generally speaking, most foods you find in the marketplace are tolerably safe, and foods that are out-and-out poisonous by their own internal nature are kept off the U.S. grocery shelves by law.


Q:   For instance?


A:   There are some species of lima beans that will kill you because of the natural cyanide they contain. They are outlawed in this country. But in other parts of the world, some lima beans have to be prepared very specially. Apple seeds contain cyanide, but hardly anyone overdoses on them. And you could get sick eating too many almonds because of their cyanide content. Cassava root, which is a staple in Africa and some of the Caribbean countries and Pacific islands, must be prepared in a special way or it will kill you because of the cyanide that is part of the plantís physiology. Whole families have died from eating undercooked cassava food.


Q:   Why are almonds or other foods that contain cyanide permitted to be sold?


A:   Because in normal amounts theyíre good for you. A tiny amount of plant cyanide is actually beneficial as a preventive of cancer. Cancer cells are extremely sensitive to cyanide, much more so than normal cells, and so the cancer tends to be killed off in its incipient stages. The basis of Edgar Cayceís recommendation that we eat at least three almonds a day is because of the available cyanide they contain.


How Will Adelphi and Stelle Handle an Economic Collapse?


Q:   I asked you some questions about this the last meeting, and Iím still thinking about it. Iíve been wondering a lot about a potential economic collapse and feel that it could come by the end of Ď89. You mentioned in a tape cassette you recorded a few years ago that there could be political realignments in the Southwest in an attempt at a local recovery from such a collapse. Would you share your image of what the realignments might be in the Texas area and in the Stelle area?


A:   I think itís logical that-people will group together to form a local economic system in the event of a breakdown of the national economy, and this would probably lead later to an actual political unification into a new state. Iím guessing that since New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana have so much in common, that the business people living there would seek to combine into an economic union.


Q:   I presume the Texas economy will hold together. Do you foresee that the other three states you cited would form around Texas?


A:   Yes.


Q:   So it would be those three states that are on the boundaries of Texas?


A:   They are all oil-producing states.


Q:   Do you see anything in particular that would split us off from the east or the west?


A:   Itís hard to predict how that will go, because it depends on what any constituency feels is in their best interests.


Q:   What about the Stelle area of Illinois? You had spoken about Chicago being in a shambles.


A:   Not until towards the turn of the century. Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee can be logical partners for one another. Theyíre all ports to the ocean, and they tend to produce the same kinds of goods and would deal with the world economy in essentially the same way; so they have a common interest in sticking together.


Q:   Those characteristics are obviously already set up. But they wouldnít have fuel, would they?


A:   Illinois has one of the largest deposits of soft coal in the world.


Q:   Of course. Plus they have pipe lines already in place for gas and oil delivery.


A:   But those lines wouldnít be filled unless somebody fills them in Oklahoma or Texas. Itís been proven that nothing comes out the end unless someone first pumps something in at the beginning.


Q:   So the Southwest coalition of states, as a kind of separate nation, could have a northern market to trade its oil to?


A:   Sure. Probably theyíd exchange silver and gold between the two areas rather than whatever their separate economies develop in the way of local currencies. Banks of issue always arise unless people prefer direct bartering, which is cumbersome. Businesses need to have some kind of medium of exchange that everyone locally will accept. Oil is a good medium and so is coal. Those are things that people need, and they can base a paper currency on those things so that thereís a real commodity standing behind certificates of oil or coal, just like when the USA used to issue certificates of silver or gold. People would prefer to walk around with a paper bill in their pocket rather than carry a hundred pound sack of coal or a bucket of oil, which the paper bill could represent and can be redeemed for.


Q:   Do Texas and Illinois have gold or silver on hand?


A:   Not particularly.


Where Is the US Gold Stored?


Q:   So where is gold stored in this country? Is there any place beside Fort Knox?


A:   Well, there are private depositaries, and some banks hold precious metals. I donít believe thereís much gold left in Fort Knox.


Q:   But if itís not in Fort Knox, where is it?


A:   Fort Knox refuses to open up its vaults even to Congress or the General Accounting Office; so itís hard to say where the gold went to.


Q:   How does Fort Knox get away with refusing to do that?


A:   Franklin Roosevelt deeded all of the privately held gold that was confiscated in 1934, when it became illegal to own gold, to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. So, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is the legal owner of all of the gold that was collected in this country, and they answer to no one as to what they did with it.


Who Owns the Federal Reserve?


Q:   Who owns the Federal Reserve Bank?


A:   There are five private banks that own the controlling stock of it, and all of them are in New York City. The U.S. government has absolutely no control over it nor does it have any ownership of the Federal Reserve System.


Q:   So the president literally gave the citizensí gold to what is essentially a privately-owned bank?


A:   Yes. There are a lot of people who think that those who were involved in that transfer should have been shot a long time ago for super grand theft. The gold was just shuffled around like it was some sort of outmoded trash. It was collected into Fort Knox, but there was no agency to keep an accounting of it; so it was given to the New York bankers to store it or dispose of it since they are the ones who issue our currency.


What Would a Future Medium of Exchange Be?


Q:   So what all this basically says to me is that our future medium of exchange might not be gold or silver.


A:   I think coal and petroleum products will probably be the things that will be in the greatest demand, and places that have it will trade it for other products or services while those who donít have it will produce something else to sell in exchange for fuels.
