January 27, 2015 The rule: “Don’t use one drug to counteract the ill effects of another”. Example: Jack your nervous system with caffeine, sugar, carbohydrate and or chocolate then smoke a cigarette or drink a glass of wine to calm your agitated nerves or vice versa. You are violating your biorhythm. You are intensely hyped from a great performance for 30,000 screaming fans. You shoot up heroin in the tour bus to calm down then snort cocaine the following night to prepare for another show - a vicious cycle. The Rule of Fouche’ - don’t leave home without it.
Drugs come in many forms - neurochemistry 101. If you endure elation and or depression undrugged you will snap out of any ill effects soon enough and after a good night’s sleep, a nutritious meal and some exercise - you’re good to go.
- Balance - mind and body
- It is difficult to exist in excited state of mind
- Bliss is excitement
- Horror is excitement
- Wavering between two poles - go too far and fall off the cliff
- Too much bliss is flyiing too close to the sun - Icarus
- Drink coffee-get wired,
- Too much adrenalin - drink beer, whiskey, wine to relax
- Get stressed-drink alcohol - begin cycle of dissolution
- What is a cycle of solution? Sleep 8 hours a night, eat nutritious food, get as much exercise as possible
- Establish a cycle of SO-lution not DIS-solution
- Love, Power, Fame, Music, TV-Movies and Art are all drugs-not all of them are destructive-all in moderation
- Entertainment is a drug that fills the void created by the absence of personal power: no local influence in love, family dynamics, local politics or much of anything.
- Lack of local power results in a spiritual void to be filled with entertainment, televised sports, unhealthy food.
- Local power position would leave little time to get lost in television:Seek The Grange, Boy Scouts, Church, Gun Club, model railroad or radio-controlled model aircraft group
- TV has become hyper-customized to lure one and all into its druggy delight.
- Power and influence are their own drugs - the loss of these launches spectatorship and excessive alcohol intake.
- All living is the modulation of one’s neurochemistry, moods, expectation of reward; i.e. neurochemical balancing act throughout the day.
- The following are drugs: love, alcohol, opiates,nicotine, cannabis, refined sugar, carbohydrate, music, drama, tv-movies, painting, food prep, religion, responsibility for others, altruistic acts, kindness to animals
- One improves at musical skill when practice becomes pleasure and it entrances the player with finger stimulation, compelling cadence, rhythm, melody
- Music and art are drugs for creators as well as their audience. One wishes to remain enthralled and when the art is over sadness ensues, a void in the heart and mind.
- One is driven to replace the now absent music drug with another less ephemeral drug but these are usually expensive and destructive to one’s health
- Desire: At age 20 I want respect, love,money, power, fame, music and art - you name it - I desire it. It ALL looks good. What will it all cost? DNA must have its histone core.
- Consequences of desire - the cat seeks to inhabit the interior of the big glass jug, once inside it wants out.
- The grass is greener on the other side - once on the other side, the grass is not so green - conclusion: My presence diminishes the color of the grass i.e. wherever I go, I reduce the quality of the environment a la Woody Allen when he remarked: “I would not want to belong to a club that would accept me as a member” My presence in the club diminishes the club.
- How to prevent the Woody effect? How does one reverse this effect once it sets in?
