How to have Awesome Knowledge & Skills

SECTION 1: 1.3
Based on your progress up until now, you already have passion, drive and the habits of an awesome person.  These habits & passions will eventually lead you to self development in those areas, as there is always more to know, and more to master.

The question becomes, how then, does one raise to the level of mastery in their chosen field?

You must have:
1) Mental Toughness
2) Physical Health & Energy

To raise your knowledges to the level of awesome, you will need to be self disciplined, motivated, and mentally tougher than most.  To raise your skills you will need to have the energy to accomplish that which most cannot.

How to have Awesome Habits

SECTION 1: 1.2
In order to do awesome things, you must have awesome habits.

We are a collection of habits, both positive and negative.  What we are, is what we habitually do.

So, now that we have our life vision, what habits would this ideal version of ourselves have to utilize, in order to achieve that end?

Were you vibrant?  Did you have lots of energy?  Did you have lots of friends?  Did people come to you for advice?  Did you give to charity?

All these types of futures require habitual action in various areas.  To be fat, one must have the habit of not moving very much, and the habit of giving into temptation, and the habit of activating various mental associations and states to various types of food.

My recommendation is both synergistic and cumulative.  Meaning, "quitting" a negative habit is very difficult, but, replacing a negative habit with a positive one (the proverbial carrot/gum/patch/meditation for cigarette) is considerably easier, as we are often addicted to the action/mental process more than the outcome of the habit itself.

These habits will build off each other and support each other in the same manner that negative habits do.

Its much easier to be fat if you have the habit of watching 6 hours of TV a day, and combine that with the other habits I mentioned earlier.

So, divide what outcomes you want, what eulogies you've written, and gradually live the lifestyle of that person.  If they were generous, make it a habit to be generous.  If they were fit, make it a habit to live a fit life.

I'd recommend checking these out for specific insights into some positive habits.

Passionate Passive Income

Use what works for you.  Electronic reminders, silent affirmations, meditative running, incantations, hypnotherapy, success journals, seminars, books, tapes/cds, all work, and all work well together.

One thing I like to do, is make my habits easy to start.  Like a cigarette only when drinking with friends, for example, you can make it a habit to do one pushup every morning.  Simple, easy to do... and habitual.  Just like how one cigarette turns into two, so too, do the pushups eventually begin multiplying all on their own.


Make it a habit to be awesome.  Start small, and never, ever compromise your positive habits.

How to have awesome motivation & vision

SECTION 1: 1.1
Each of us has our own passions, our own talents and our own sense of, and path towards, joy and bliss.  The trick, for some, is to find, and cultivate it.

One of the most effective methods for discovering your passion is a method used by three humorous ghosts in an Bill Murray movie, Scrooged.  (I watch this movie with my Mom every Christmas, by the way, for the movie's inspiring message)

The concept is this:  See your death, and see your ideal death, and do a little bit of math.

What I mean by that is, take your current life, and simply multiply it all.  What's the likely outcome?  How many friends will you have, how many lives will you have changed, and what would people say about you?

Take a moment to understand that, and write out the eulogy they would say about you, and any stories or statements that those who attend your funeral would say.


Now, shake your body a little, and think about your ideal death.  Sure, its a strange concept, but give it a go.

Think about how you'd like to be remembered.  Who is there at your funeral, and what do they have to say about you?

Again, take the time, and write out your ideal eulogy.  Who did you affect?  How?  In what way?  How is the world a better place because of you?  Who did you inspire to take action?  What sorts of things would these people say about you?  (are these people different people?)

Hopefully it won't take a lunatic with a shotgun to get you to see the light.  Hopefully you'll simply see these two (often radically different) futures and easily be able to pick which one you want to create.

In essence, hopefully you now have all the motivation you'll ever need, both negative (avoidance) and positive (attraction) - keep the positive future in your mind, and work towards that end.

How to do Awesome Things

SECTION 1: 1.1-1.4
Step 1 in being Awesome: Do awesome things.

In order to do awesome things, we must have

1) Awesome motivation & vision
2) Awesome habits
3) Awesome knowledge & skills
4) Optionally/eventually, an awesome mentor & team.

4 is optionally/eventually because, eventually, all amazing people acquire a team and a coach/mentor.  However, when you do this accelerative step, is up to you.

Sensei Ono, Shinka Martial Arts

How to be Awesome

In my opinion, to be Awesome, one must:

1) Do awesome things
2) Help others to do step 1
3) Help others to do step 2.
4) Repeat, magnify, and monitor the geometric ripple effect.

So, just as one must first put the oxygen mask on oneself before one's children, so too must we first become awesome ourselves before we focus too heavily on making others awesome.

To my awesome parents, awesome wife, awesome teachers, awesome mentors and awesome students:

Without your guidance, support, love, questions and care, this book would never have been written, and my awesome life would be considerably different.

To all those who have knowingly or unknowingly attempted to stand in my way on any projects: 

Without you I would not have been strong enough, or well prepared enough to have come this far.

Thank you to all. 

Enjoy the book!

End of Section 1: Congratulations!

Excellently done.  I congratulate you!

Seriously, not many people really finish what they've started in this world.  In fact, not many people even get close!  You're at the end of a section, and that is a cause for celebration!

Of the tiny, tiny percentage of people who take the time to make the effort to improve themselves, an even tinier percentage finish the very books they were using for that purpose.  I mean it, I'm impressed!

Take a moment and bask in this praise.  Its important to be well practiced at receiving praise, and not deflecting it.  This isn't a time to be super humble and say something like "oh, it was nothing"  It was something, and you did it!

You now have all the tools necessary to do awesome things!

What sorts of awesome things will you do?  Do you have a 1 year plan?  A 10 year plan?  What impact will your increased awesomeness have upon our world?

I know you'll be super busy, doing all these awesome things, and, I know that you've not got the thirst for making things even better, yes?

Mentors & Teams: Think Tanks & Teams

SECTION 1: 1.4.2

At times, the quality of our think tanks & teams are what make or break the awesome in our lives.

Think tanks allow for one of the most powerful combinations in the universe:
Focused leveraging of information & time.

The momentum and power that comes from the leveraging of time and knowledge is outstanding.  Batman is likely an impossible person.  He's simply too highly skilled & educated in every conceivable thing - from martial arts to memorizing early 50's actors names in case the Riddler decides to include one in one of his obscure references.  

But a team of people calling themselves "Batman Inc." is entirely possible.

To put it into terms possibly more applicable to your own life:  One member of your team is studying SEO, the other, how to evaluate companies, another is an expert in sales and writing copy, another is studying lighting and film, while another is full of creative ideas.

All of a sudden, you've got a pretty awesome website, without everyone knowing all the tools.  Think tanks often ban together to form corporations and teams, or splinter groups with a common vision.

What defines a think tank group is the thinking.  What holds them together with accuracy, is their common vision.

Getting together and brainstorming, as well as sharing progress & challenges is an excellent way to maintain momentum, and avoid getting "stuck".  Common vision is an excellent way to help arbitrate decisions.

Even simply having a place to articulate your challenge to another human being can sometimes queue up your subconscious' own ability to solve the situation itself!

The secret to many awesome people's lives, was that they surrounded themselves with people who played at what, to them, was work.

Said differently, one person's "trash" is another person's "treasure".  You might hate public speaking, while a team member might live for it.

Mentors & Teams: Finding & Evaluating Friends

Of all tasks necessary for evolutionary awesomeness, people tend to get the most sensitive about selective friendships.

The terms "elitist" and "snob" come to many people's minds nearly instantly, so, good for you for being open minded enough to read on.

Regardless of how you feel towards selective friendships, one thing is certain:
How selective we become about who we surround ourselves directly influences which realities we will gravitate towards.

Said differently, we become that which surrounds us.

Loyalty is an admirable trait, and in no way am I saying you should "fire" your friends who don't live up to your highly judgmental standards.  Or that you should ask for resumes when introduced to a person.

What I am saying, is that when you are managing your time, be aware that you will subconsciously adapt to your environment.  You will become your environment.  Observe your environment with that knowledge.  And do what you can to make that environment as awesome as possible.

Mentors & Teams: Finding & Evaluating Coaches

Coaches are the people in our lives who drive us, inspire us, motivate us, and, perhaps most importantly, are able to look at us as impartially as possible with their trained eyes, and see the areas that need the most improvement.

They aren't always tactful, or even kind, (though its nice when they are) but they always tell us what we need to hear in order to improve.

As with mentors, be selective.  Judge both by results, and by feel.

It should feel empowering to be in the presence of your coach, to see the improvement and possibilities.

At the same time, they should push you past your comfort zones, and encourage growth which, at times, could be painful.

A great coach will be able to empathize and help you through, or provide advice for, those growing pains.

Anything from:
"you're likely to feel some stiffness in your legs after today's martial arts class - remember to stretch your legs!" 
"you're likely going to feel some anxiety over this multi-million dollar deal - just remember that breathing exercise!" 
"This book is likely going to make your brain hurt - remember to offset the epiphanies with some comic books"

Ultimately, a great coach is like great art:  Subjective and a personal choice.  Evaluate your coach the same way you do your art.  Does it move you?

Mentors & Teams: Finding & Evaluating Mentors

Finding a mentor at this stage for you should be easy, because you already know what you want, and have an approximate game-plan as to how to achieve it, or, at the very least, through which means.

So, despite the fact that you are a unique, beautiful snowflake, I'm willing to be that someone has done something, at some time, that is similar... and has been very successful at it.

When you find this person, or persons, immediately pose yourself this challenge:  What can you do for them?  How could you make their lives easier?  What insight could you offer them?

Even something as simple as paying for lunch, or picking up someone's dry cleaning is sometimes enough.  While others may require nearly complete servitude.  Keep in mind, it doesn't matter if someone is a billionaire.  Buying someone lunch is still buying someone lunch.  Its a gesture that shows you appreciate their time.

A note:  World class people of the highest caliber are always looking to serve the world.

If you can not only offer them some form of service, but also show them how them helping you would better serve the world, all the better!

Evaluating your Mentor is simple:

Take out your eulogy, and compare it to what theirs would be if they died within 3 years.  Is it close in ambition? In passion?

The important aspect is:  Is this person someone you want to be LIKE?  (not necessarily "BE", but be LIKE)

For example, someone who is an extremely successful entrepreneur who is passionate about empowering youth through their kayaking program would still be "close enough" for someone who wishes to be an extremely successful entrepreneur who is passionate about empowering youth through their martial arts program.

However, an extremely successful cigarette company CEO might not fit the bill.

Choose your mentors carefully.  Evaluate their life from multiple angles, or, at the very least, selectively listen to their advice based on their reality.

If they are miserable with their wives, but are incredible teachers, business owners and make the world a better place - listen to their advice on marketing, philosophy and influence - but maybe filter out some of their relationship advice.

Remember:  Nobody is perfect.  But everyone is better at something, than you.  Find someone with a large chunk of well-developed pieces of things you want to be better at, and help them out.

If you have a hard time finding this person, ask yourself who the top in the field is, and work your way down to someone you can reach.  Or, find someone slightly better than you and ask them questions until they can't answer you any more, and at some point find out who they go to for advice, and work your way up.

Mentors & Teams: The Difference Between Mentors, Coaches & Friends

Many people lump their support groups into one large ball.

I would point out that mentors are generally closer to where you want to be than you are, and often will attempt to encourage you towards their reality; while coaches are generally excellent at spotting ways for you to improve, and influencing you to do so; and friends are people who make you laugh, are there for you when you feel up or down, and will encourage you towards their reality.

All are totally awesome, and sometimes people do "cross over" into various areas.  (for example, many of my business associates are friends) but remember:  Do not confuse the three.  A friend's council is different from a coach's, as it has a different objective.  A friend's council is different from a mentor's as they have different realities.

(Even Batman has Alfred.)

Health & Energy: Awesome Breathing

In order to achieve your ideal weight, be stress free, have abundant energy, and cleanse your body of toxins, you must master the art of breathing.

The good news is, its easy to learn.  The challenge is, of course, remembering to do it, and making the time to do so.

I recommend setting up an automatic reminder where you can find the time to do this sort of thing on a regular basis. Timing it with meals, showers, or exercise regimes works wonderfully, as it only takes about 4 minutes from start to finish.

Ideally, you'll want to do the below 3 times per day.

It is important to follow these steps exactly for optimum results:
  1. Connect your tongue to your pallet, assume a straight posture (standing, sitting, or laying down) and face your palms up, keeping your legs, fingers & toes uncrossed.
  2. Breathe in deeply through your nose, allowing your stomach to expand before your chest for X seconds
  3. Hold for 4X seconds
  4. Exhale for 2X seconds
  5. Take one big, natural breath
  6. Repeat steps 1-4, 10 times or more.
For example, you could breathe in for 3 seconds, hold for 12 seconds, and exhale for 6 seconds.  The number doesn't really matter, though, bigger is always better as long as you do not feel strained.

For added benefit you may close your eyes, be in nature, or listen to calming music, positive affirmations, or other forms of subliminal tools or educational resources that do not require conscious involvement.

Health & Energy: How to choose a martial arts school pt 2

Transparency:  Secretive vs Open
  • Secretive styles are often mysterious and appealing to those seeking "forbidden knowledge", and view questions as impolite.
  • Open styles are often up front about their curriculum, and are open to answering questions.
Use: Sport vs Self Defense
  • Styles intended for sport are often competitive, and teach sport fighting.  Sports are filled with rules to ensure the safety of the fighters, which means that you are effectively learning to strike areas of the body which will do the least harm.
  • Styles intended for self defense can be competitive or cooperative.  Self defense can be taught just as safely as a sport style, but its application can range from neutralization of a threat to outright termination.
Character:  Students & Staff
Just as you can observe the body type of the majority of consumers of various food outlets, from organic groceries to McDonald's, so too can you observe the mindset of a school's students.  Ask yourself, are these people more, or less, like how you want to be?  Are they happy?  Are they determined?  Disciplined?  Make sure that where you're going is filled with students and instructors who walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

Health & Energy: How to choose a martial arts school

Everyone should take martial arts. The question is... Which combination works for you?
Many people do not know that there are different types of martial arts, or different ways of teaching them.  As training in the martial arts has been described as the biggest decision people have made for themselves and their children, I strongly urge you to make an educated choice.
Method: Hard vs. Soft
  • Hard styles are "hard' because they focus on the joining of objects through speedpower andstrength.  Often times they will put emphasis on sparring.
  • Soft styles are "soft" because they focus on the manipulation of pre-joined objects through redirection leverage.
Development: Internal vs External
  • Internal styles are "internal" because they focus upon breathing meditation techniques, and often incorporate flowing movements and skeletal alignments.
  • External styles are "external" because they focus more upon cardiovascular development and strength training.
Mindset: Competitive vs Cooperative
  • Competitive schools will often have "fight teams" and focus on winning/losingcompetitions andtrophies.  (Sport application)
  • Cooperative schools will focus on helping each other trainimprovement of self esteem and aptitude.  (Self defense application)
All of the above examples can, of course, be merged together.  There can be hard and soft styles, internal and external focus etc.  The important thing, is to find your perfect mix, or have a professional help you find it.

Health & Energy: Awesome Exercise


Awesome exercise must:
1) Work out the majority of our muscles
There are few exercises that work out the majority of your muscles.  Martial Arts, forms of dance, swimming and mountain climbing are some of the more well rounded forms of exercise.
2) Have aerobic and anaerobic components.
You'll want to have both speed, and endurance.  While aerobic exercise is excellent for your cardiovascular system, and promotes the muscle's abilities to maintain exertion for long periods of time, anaerobic exercise will develop the muscles' abilities to function for short bursts of high intensity.  For a martial artist, the anaerobic provides the ability to hit in short, accurate bursts, and the aerobic provides the ability to recover in between combinations.
3) Challenge us.
Without a goal on the horizon, we tend to jog a little slower.  Without a black belt on the horizon, we tend to train a little less.  Find goals within your exercise, and monitor them.

I would not recommend using weight as a goal (as muscle gain can provide frustrating "weight-based" benchmarks, while pants-size goals, or simply aesthetic goals are considerably more beneficial)
4) Be fun, and be done regularly.
What do you honestly do in your life, regularly, that isn't in some way fun?  How hard is it to get you to do those things?  You want your exercise to be stress-relief, to be fun, to be challenging, and enjoyable!  This is why I love martial arts so much.  You barely realize you're exercising, and the results speak for themselves.

Health & Energy: How to achieve proper hydration


The trick to proper hydration is less complex than solid foods, and still has to do with both quality and quantity.

There are different grades of water.  The higher the grade, the better your body will run.

Tap Water:  
Chemicals and additives I wouldn't drink unless there was no other option.

Filtered Water:  
Great, though not all water filters are created equal.  As they are constantly improving on existing technology, I cannot recommend a specific product, though, I can recommend this site for finding the best one for you.

Bottled Water:
Mostly scams and poor products that prey on the naive or uninformed.  
However, this site has some fantastic product.  (If nothing else, I like having a few of their bottles to transport my own filtered water in, as their bottles are of a much higher quality than the standard fare)

Your body uses up an extremely large amount of water when it is digesting, sleeping, exercising, or having sex.  So, drink before those activities, and afterwards.

Your urine shouldn't stink, and shouldn't be dark yellow.  Try to drink a little before you're thirsty, as a habit.

To alkalize water, you can use alkalizing drops, or lemon.  To increase your body's health, lower body odor, and massively increase your digestion, you may want to add things like
 chlorophyll to your water.  Its yummy, and good for you (though I wouldn't mix it with the lemon).

You may also want to start your day with a green drink.  This ensures you start your day with liquid, and high-liquid-content, alkaline foods.  (those mix well with the chlorophyll)

Health & Energy: Learning proper portions & timing of meals


Quantity & Timing are Important
The more you drive your car, the more you have to fill up the tank.
When the tank is full, you stop filling it up.

The more you exercise, the more you have to eat.
When the stomach is full, you stop filling it up.

Conversely, if you repeatedly drove a car full out to the point where it completely ran out of fuel, then abandoned it on the side of the road & let it dry out for a long interval, only to fill up the tank to full and repeat the process, you would damage the car.

Your body prefers to have regular, lite meals.  About 4-6 small meals per day is excellent.  

If you must eat meat, consider having it for lunch, verses breakfast or dinner.

Imagine someone fasting for a while.  Would you feed them a steak when they had their break-fast?  No.  You'd give them some soup, maybe some oatmeal etc.  Something easy to digest.

Your body requires a tremendous amount of water to regenerate organs while you sleep.  
Your body requires tremendous amounts of water to digest food.
It cannot do both at the same time.  

Meat takes more than 6 hours to digest.  Often as much as 12 hours.  

If you are digesting while sleeping, you are not regenerating, and thusly you will feel very tired when you wake up, and, your body will fall into disrepair without sufficient regeneration time.

Health & Energy: Learn How All Disease Comes From Acidity in the Blood


During a garbage strike, rats will appear.
The rats are not the problem, they are a symptom of the excess garbage.

Having a poor diet will cause parasites & diseases to appear.
The parasites & diseases are not the problem, they are a symptom of the diet.

Just as excess garbage creates an environment for rats to proliferate, so too does an acidic bloodstream create an environment for disease to proliferate.

Here's the worst part:

The more garbage, the more rats.
The more rats... the more rats!

Disease breeds just like rats do.

Which means:

The more acidic your blood becomes... the more acidic your blood becomes!

The disease poops & breeds in your blood, and that poop is acidic.

You can kill off the diseases with modern medicine, but, they will come back because of the environment you've created for them.

Solution:  Alkalize the blood.  Disease cannot survive in your alkaline bloodstream.

Health & Energy: Even Scarier Facts about Microwaves

(As if it wasn't bad enough)
Who invented microwave ovens?
The Nazis!
For use in their mobile support operations, originally developed microwave "radiomissor" cooking ovens to be used for the invasion of Russia. By being able to utilize electronic equipment for preparation of meals on a mass scale, the logistical problem of cooking fuels would have been eliminated, as well as the convenience of producing edible products in a greatly reduced time-factor.
After the war, the Allies discovered medical research done by the Germans on microwave ovens. These documents, along with some working microwave ovens, were transferred to the United States War Department and classified for reference and "further scientific investigation." The Russians had also retrieved some microwave ovens and now have thorough research on their biological effects. As a result, their use was outlawed in the Soviet Union. The Soviets issued an international warning on the health hazards, both biological and environmental, of microwave ovens and similar frequency electronic devices.
Other Eastern European scientists also reported the harmful effects of microwave radiation and set up strict environmental limits for their usage. The United States has not accepted the European reports of harmful effects, even though the EPA estimates that radio frequency and microwave radiation sources in America are increasing at 15% per year.
Carcinogens in microwaved food
In Dr. Lita Lee's book, Health Effects of Microwave Radiation - Microwave Ovens, and in the March and September 1991 issues of Earthletter, she stated that every microwave oven leaks electro-magnetic radiation, harms food, and converts substances cooked in it to dangerous organ-toxic and carcinogenic products. Further research summarized in this article reveal that microwave ovens are far more harmful than previously imagined.
The following is a summary of the Russian investigations published by the Atlantis Raising Educational Center in Portland, Oregon. Carcinogens were formed in virtually all foods tested. No test food was subjected to more microwaving than necessary to accomplish the purpose, i.e., cooking, thawing, or heating to insure sanitary ingestion. Here's a summary of some of the results:
•Microwaving prepared meats sufficiently to insure sanitary ingestion caused formation of d-Nitrosodienthanolamines, a well-known carcinogen. •Microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of their amino acids into carcinogens. •Thawing frozen fruits converted their glucoside and galactoside containing fractions into carcinogenic substances. •Extremely short exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables converted their plant alkaloids into carcinogens. •Carcinogenic free radicals were formed in microwaved plants, especially root vegetables.

  Decrease in nutritional value 
Russian researchers also reported a marked acceleration of structural degradation leading to a decreased food value of 60 to 90% in all foods tested. Among the changes observed were:
•Decreased bio-availability of vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics factors in all food tested. •Various kinds of damaged to many plant substances, such as alkaloids, glucosides, galactosides and nitrilosides. •The degradation of nucleo-proteins in meats.

Microwave sickness is discovered
The Russians did research on thousands of workers who had been exposed to microwaves during the development of radar in the 1950's. Their research showed health problems so serious that the Russians set strict limits of 10 microwatts exposure for workers and one microwatt for civilians.
In Robert O. Becker's book, The Body Electric, he described Russian research on the health effects of microwave radiation, which they called "microwave sickness." On page 314, Becker states: "It's [Microwave sickness] first signs are low blood pressure and slow pulse. The later and most common manifestations are chronic excitation of the sympathetic nervous system [stress syndrome] and high blood pressure. This phase also often includes headache, dizziness, eye pain, sleeplessness, irritability, anxiety, stomach pain, nervous tension, inability to concentrate, hair loss, plus an increased incidence of appendicitis, cataracts, reproductive problems, and cancer. The chronic symptoms are eventually succeeded by crisis of adrenal exhaustion and ischemic heart disease [the blockage of coronary arteries and heart attacks]."
According to Dr. Lee, changes are observed in the blood chemistries and the rates of certain diseases among consumers of microwaved foods. The symptoms above can easily be caused by the observations shown below. The following is a sample of these changes:
  • Lymphatic disorders were observed, leading to decreased ability to prevent certain types of cancers.
  • An increased rate of cancer cell formation was observed in the blood.
  • Increased rates of stomach and intestinal cancers were observed.
  • Higher rates of digestive disorders and a gradual breakdown of the systems of elimination were observed.
  Microwave research conclusions (other than "get a toaster oven")
The following were the most significant German and Russian research operations facilities concerning the biological effects of microwaves: 
The initial research conducted by the Germans during the Barbarossa military campaign, at the Humbolt-Universitat zu Berlin (1942-1943); and, from 1957 and up to the present [until the end of the cold war], the Russian research operations were conducted at: the Institute of Radio Technology at Kinsk, Byelorussian Autonomous Region; and, at the Institute of Radio Technology at Rajasthan in the Rossiskaja Autonomous Region, both in the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics. 
In most cases, the foods used for research analysis were exposed to microwave propagation at an energy potential of 100 kilowatts/cm3/second, to the point considered acceptable for sanitary, normal ingestion. The effects noted by both German and Russian researchers is presented in three categories:
  • Category I, Cancer-Causing Effects
  • Category II, Nutritive Destruction of Foods
  • Category III, Biological Effects of Exposure
[The first two points of Category I are not readable from our report copy. The remainder of the report is intact.]
  3. Creation of a "binding effect" to radioactivity in the atmosphere, thus causing a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;
  4. Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];
  5. Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];
  6. Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];
  7. Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas - cell tumors such as sarcoma];
  8. Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;
  9. Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;
  10. Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,
  11. In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.
  Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:
  1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;
  2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;
  3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;
  4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;
  5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.
  Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law. The following are the enumerated effects:
  1. A breakdown of the human "life-energy field" in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;
  2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;
  3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;
  4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;
  5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];
  6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;
  7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];
  8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;
  9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic "deposits" were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;
  10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;
  11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;
  12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

  Forensic Research Conclusions
From the twenty-eight above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence. 
Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body (Category III:9), which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.
The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.
