Relationship Advice Blogger and Neuroscientist Gary Wilson explains the Biology of Internet Porn Addiction. I originally found his site while researching the topic of “coitus reservatus” an ancient tantric technique, found in both Eastern and Western traditions, which is the art of sex and orgasm without ejaculation.  I had been reading some books related to Magick, Alchemy, and Eastern Mysticism that referred to this practice.  Some writers had used some pretty psuedo- scientific lingo, saying things like “semen is composed of cerebro-spinal fluid” implying that ejaculating too much literally drains your brain. I knew that couldn’t be right. So how many nuts should I bust or not bust to stay healthy?  In my google searches I came to Gary and his wife’s site, which also linked to the Porn Addiction site. I found this series of videos fascinating. I think it explains a lot about addiction in general and the more primitive parts of the  human brain. It jibes with a lot of things I had researched earlier about dopamine and ADHD. I hope you will find it as fascinating as I did. I think it might have application to the mechanism of video game addiction as well.

My friend Talitha Thayla organized a screening of Burzynski: The Movie at Traditions Cafe in downtown Olympia, WA. It’s a movie about the legal struggles of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, a physician whose antineoplaston cancer treatments has earned the ire of the United States Food and Drug Administration. The movie depicts patients being cured of aggressive brain cancers when the only alternative was crippling doses of radiation and chemo. You can watch the video in this post.

As I watched the movie a familiar pattern unfolded: A monopolistic big business cartel uses the legal system to conduct a witch hunt against an individual who threatens their hegemony in keeping themselves rich and the public powerless. Only this time there is a refreshing twist: Burzynski is making headway in the fight. He’s beaten the Texas Medical Board’s and the FDA’s malicious prosecutions Five times.

One thing the FDA in its witch hunt against Dr. Burzynski never denied: His natural, non-invasive non-toxic therapy cures cancer.

You may see homeless people everyday and never suspect them. Conversely, that panhandler on the street corner may not be homeless at all. But, perhaps, you have that fear in the back of your mind that such a fate could happen to you.
