This is interesting to me though, that resin is apparently somatopsychic. The leaves will it upward.

That does explain somewhat the working of orgonite.

And it exposes what psychism really is.

Congratulations, that is probably the weirdest fact so far.

Seems to check out. I mean I havent tried it but there are some claims being made to this effect.

The Theory of Relativity predated Einstein.
The basic ideas of the theory pre-existed and had a different name.

All of Einstein's children wound up in mental institutions or disappeared - one reportedly placed in an orphanage.
His first wife did all the complex math, and was not accredited - she was a Serbian woman, with a limp.

Traditionally, a mohel must draw blood from the circumcision wound. Most mohels do it by hand with a suction device, but some follow the traditional practice of doing it by mouth.

The symbolism of being "chosen" and of removing piece of the male sex organ is obvious. A ritualized symbolic castration, indicating total submission to the one and only alpha-male, i.e. Abraham's one-god.
Abraham is the central symbolic figure of all three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, but is by no means the originator of monotheism, nor of the spiritual nihilism monotheism represents.
His readiness to put to the knife - sacrifice, make sacred - his one and only son, is another indication of complete and utter emasculation. The male's children do not actually belong to him, but he has been chosen to stand-in for the one-God.
This is also what is implied by nihilists concerning determinism and the absence of free-will. They imply their own representational essence; power through association.
This anti-family, anti-pater (anti-paternalism) dogmatism is symbolized in many parts of the Bible - a document that begins theocratic ethics, or differentiate evolved moral behaviours from man-made social behaviours - morality/ethics: genes/memes.

Where Hellenism taught European man how to think, Judaism, morphed into Christianity, imposed a behavioural rule, training him how he ought to act.

Blood letting is also associated with cleanliness - kosher.
A barbarous practice that bleeds out an animal, instead of quickly killing it.

Contrary to popular beliefs - cultivated by particular sources - the ancient Greeks looked down upon males who enjoyed being anally penetrated, referring to them as 'soft' {μαλακος}.
Modern Greeks over-use the term μαλακας like many Americanized westerners do with the word 'fuck', and misunderstands it as referring to 'masturbation' - wanker, jerk-off etc. - when, in fact, the term refers to homosexuality.

This is a truism. I mean the guy who was pitching had to look down at the guy who was catching, didn't he? Unless they were standing up or doing the cowboy.

How weird is this...
Wikipedia wrote:The Roman salute (Italian: saluto romano) is a gesture in which the arm is fully extended, facing forward, with palm down and fingers touching. In some versions, the arm is raised upward at an angle; in others, it is held out parallel to the ground. In contemporary times, the former is widely considered a symbol of fascism that is commonly perceived to be based on a custom in ancient Rome.[1] However, no Roman text gives this description, and the Roman works of art that display salutational gestures bear little resemblance to the modern Roman salute.[1]
Beginning with Jacques-Louis David's painting The Oath of the Horatii (1784), an association of the gesture with Roman republican and imperial culture emerged. The gesture and its identification with Roman culture were further developed in other neoclassic artworks. This was further elaborated upon in popular culture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in plays and films that portrayed the salute as an ancient Roman custom. These included a 1914 Italian film called Cabiria whose intertitles were written by the nationalist poet Gabriele d'Annunzio. In 1919, d'Annunzio adopted the cinematographically depicted salute as a neo-imperial ritual when he led the occupation of Fiume.
Through d'Annunzio's influence, the gesture soon became part of the rising Italian Fascist movement's symbolic repertoire. In 1923 the salute was gradually adopted by the Italian Fascist regime. It was then adopted and made compulsory within the Nazi Party in 1926, and gained national prominence in the German state when the Nazis took power in 1933. It was also adopted by other fascist, far right and ultranationalist movements.
Since the end of World War II, displaying the Nazi variant of the salute has been a criminal offence in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland. Legal restrictions on its use in Italy are more nuanced and use there has generated controversy.[2] The gesture and its variations continue to be used in neo-fascist, neo-Nazi, and Falangist contexts.

The Roman salute was adopted by the Nazis.
Weirder still, the ancient Spartans would be far worse than any nazi.
The difference is that they lacked the technologies to produce the numbers of dead and the levels of destruction todays modern armies can produce.

And the Athenians were no better.
Today they would be banned from all social media and called bigoted fascists and nazis by those who pretend to be their admirers.
The dead and the past is idealized - cleansed and selectively interpreted to abide by modern moral and social standards.
Romans would be worse than Nazis.
Vikings would be abominations. Brutish, vulgar, not politically correct, anti-Semites, racists, sexists....and on and on.
How weird is that?

We love to paint pretty ideal pictures and selectively sample from reality and from history, to feel like we are honest and have integrity.

Like an occult religion.
If you observe the common passionate reactions to whatever threatens this shared superstition, it is religious.

'Nazi' has become the term replacing 'Satan', or 'evil'.
Abrahamism changes but does not go away, because the masses will always need a comforting superstition to help them cope with nature's injustices.
Secular forms like Marxism are also religious-like in the minds of the many. Another salvation myth.

Super weird pseudo-fact.
Mulatto mix-raced children have higher on average IQs.
According to Krissies extensive research with chickens, ducks, and other livestock.
I guess that's why we se so many of them as Nobel Prise winners, and Brazil as the nation that produces the highest creativity in all areas of human interest.

They're jungle people man. They don't have hadron colliders and smithsonian libraries and chemical research centers and silicon valleys down there.. so what did you expect? All you can do down there is grow your ass out (if you're a chick), play some kind of primitive instrument fashioned out of wood and animal skin, and learn how to grapple.

Genius is not about doing the greatest things, but doing greatly what you do do. And Brazilians are great at what they do.

Weird fact.
Brazil is the most intellectually advanced nation on Earth. After so much race mixing it is way ahead of the pack and keeping it a secret.
The U.S. found out and is on the Macarena bandwagon of interracial copulation. Brilliant babies ahead.
That's why Canada is pushing all this multiculturalism crap. Trudeau must have somehow found out the secret to genius breeding.
The U.S. is playing catch-up to Brazil, though.
With so many mulattos, they are a smart bomb waiting to explode into a huge carnaval.
Can't wait.
