Kosher Cloned Pork

We eat a Levitical diet. We raise almost all of our own meat and what we don’t raise is raised by people we know, or wild, as in deer.

The article below is a very good reason why we do not eat “kosher”.

It’s just disgusting to me to even consider eating cloned meat. Let me know your thoughts if you like…Article is linked in the title.

Rabbi says meat from genetically cloned pig could be eaten by Jews – including with milk

504shares

(JTA) — A prominent Orthodox rabbi in Israel said that meat from a genetically cloned pig would be kosher for consumption by Jews, including when eaten with dairy products.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow told Ynet in an interview published Wednesday that cloned meat is not subject to the rules that apply to the consumption of regular meat.

Cherlow is quoted as saying that “cloned meat produced from a pig shall not be defined as prohibited for consumption – including with milk.”

In the interview, Cherlow of the Tzohar Rabbinical Organization appears to be talking about meat that is grown artificially in a laboratory from the cells of a pig rather than meat produced from a live pig whose genetic material comes from a cell from which the pig was cloned. However, the article does not quote him as making the distinction.

In the interview ahead of a Bar-Ilan University symposium titled “Science and Halacha” featuring a talk by Cherlow, he advocated rabbinic approval of cloned meat “so that people would not starve, to prevent pollution, and to avoid the suffering of animals.”

When the “cell of a pig is used and its genetic material is utilized in the production of food, the cell in fact loses its original identity and therefore cannot be defined as forbidden for consumption,” Cherlow said. “It wouldn’t even be meat, so you can consume it with dairy.”

In 2013, Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of the Orthodox Union’s kosher division, said that meat from a lab-grown hamburger could be consumed with dairy products, although halacha, religious Jewish law, forbids it in meat produced from a live animal.

But Genack, who was commenting on the production of an artificial hamburger produced by researchers from Maastricht University in the Netherlands, did not mention pork, whose consumption is one of Judaism’s strongest prohibitions.

“Without prophesizing, clearly there will be a major disagreement,” Cherlow said over the consumption of what he called cloned meat. And while “there is merit” in prohibiting this meat, too, “halachic thought should examine the needs of all humanity, not only one’s own case,” he said.

Plants Are Smarter Than We Think

This is a really cool article. They actually put plants into an unconscious state, and thereby realized that plants are indeed conscious.

Just thought I’d share this. Link in the headline and article is only a small excerpt:

Sedate a Plant, and It Seems to Lose Consciousness. Is It Conscious?

Now, a study published recently in Annals of Botany has shown that plants can be frozen in place with a range of anesthetics, including the types that are used when you undergo surgery.

Insights gleaned from the study may help doctors better understand the variety of anesthetics used in surgeries. But the research also highlights that plants are complex organisms, perhaps less different from animals than is often assumed.

“Plants are not just robotic, stimulus-response devices,” said Frantisek Baluska, a plant cell biologist at the University of Bonn in Germany and co-author of the study. “They’re living organisms which have their own problems, maybe something like with humans feeling pain or joy. In order to navigate this complex life, they must have some compass.”

The Memo~ Collusion, Fraud, Election Fraud, Interference, Abuse of Power, etc

Here’s the link to the Memo. This is bigger than Watergate.

HMTG-115-IG00-20180129-SD001

Sessions needs to issue immediate arrest warrants for the people mentioned in this memo as they are definitely flight risks. This is intense.

Surprisingly, this is actually a beginning on draining the Swamp.

The Interbrain is Human Wifi

I’ve been doing a little research into AI and came across this intriguing article about the interconnectedness of human beings in real time. Not digital interfacing, like all those Facebook friends you never even actually have met or spoken with, but direct contact interconnectedness.

I’m contemplating the differences humans experience with each other as compared to Artificial Intelligence and what AI may or may not be capable of surmising of the human interface mechanisms. So far this contemplation is just in the “Hmmm” area that resides in the middle part of my brain where I digest things and wait for verbal manifestations of solidified thought to arise. But…I might be weird.

If you haven’t yet done so, you might want to take this kind of fun and interesting personality test.  I’d taken this kind of test previously and had the same result, and it was actually pretty accurate in the attributes and descriptive segments…And I fell into the “approximately 1% category”. Wish I fell into that category in the monetary spectrum. It may or may not be illuminating for you. But it should be fun!

Here’s an excerpt of the article and it is linked in the title:

How ‘wi-fi’ connects human brains and explains why people have ‘gut feelings’

“We can know directly about other people’s emotions and what they are paying attention to,” he said. “It is based on the direct connection between our brains and other people’s and between their brain and ours. I call this the interbrain.

“One of its advantages is that the connection exists in the background. We take it for granted unless it is brought to the surface of our minds.

“People with autism have little or no interbrain connection. They are often able to pick up or learn what expressions mean and yet that doesn’t seem to solve the problem of that lack of human connection.”

Prof Tantum believes that the communication between brains may happen as an ‘inadvertent leak’ and it may be linked to smell. Areas of the brain which have the most activity of neurons are located in the prefrontal cortex, and are linked with smelling. They also are situated where they follow the gaze.

Retro Causality and the Mandela Effect

A youtube fellow going by the handle Photohelix released a video very recently about what he believes may be causing the Mandela/Quantum Effect. It’s quite interesting and very much worth taking the time to watch and contemplate.

If you haven’t guessed already, it’s kind of another variation on physics hitting philosophy in a high speed blender. But it may very well be a good explanation of the origins of this effect.

So, for your consideration….

USDA Being Sued By Family Farmers

While there are a lot of positive things happening under Trump for many areas of the US independent business sector, agriculture isn’t getting the right help. Yes, the issues with NAFTA and the TPP will help, but the anti-trust anti-monopoly laws need to be enforced in order for small, independent farms and ranches to be profitable.

The US Constitution is not supposed to protect the rights of corporations to hold individuals in the position of serfdom. It’s supposed to protect individual freedoms.

Below is an excerpt from the Organization for Competitive Markets release regarding their suit against the USDA. While OCM doesn’t always hold the correct position (in this writer’s opinion) this time, they are completely correct.

Happy to hear your thoughts on this matter!

Stop the Extinction of America’s Family Farmers

For decades, federal laws protected family farmers from monopoly power in the food industry. In October 2017, the U.S. Department of Agriculture withdrew critical protections intended to shield family farmers and ranchers from abusive practices by big agribusiness corporations. In doing so, the Trump administration has thrown America’s farmers and ranchers to the wolves, telling them their family businesses don’t matter.

Farmer Fair Practices Rules

Since 1980, 90% of U.S. hog farmers and 41% of U.S. cattle producers have gone out of business, and over one million U.S. farmers have been driven off the land. 71% of America’s poultry farmers now live below the federal poverty level. A huge contributor is the fact that our agribusiness anti-monopoly law, called the Packers & Stockyards Act, is not being enforced, and farmers are not protected from predatory and retaliatory practices by the largest livestock and poultry processing companies.

The Farmer Fair Practices Rules, also known as the GIPSA rules, would have stopped this injustice by ensuring our anti-monopoly law is enforced, but the Trump administration withdrew these protections. More than 80 farm organizations, representing hundreds of thousands of farmers, called on the president to reverse this decision, but we were ignored. With the help of Democracy Forward Foundation, we are suing the Trump administration for illegally rolling back the Farmer Fair Practices Rules…..read the rest here.

Skynet is Here~This is serious

At times it becomes difficult to stay within the realm of good social discourse when you’ve read entirely too many documents that clearly demonstrate George Orwell’s axiom of a “boot stamping on a human face forever”.  Such is the case with AI, quantum computing, Cern, the Mandela Effect, frequency weapons, 5G, nanobots, nanoparticles as antennae, geoengineering, the “FunVax”, DNA gene signaling, Bitcoin possibly being invented and run by AI, AI creating their own language and ignoring their programmers, self acquiring targeting drones, facial recognition, brain scanning technology, voice to skull technology, the internet of things, sexbots, Sophia and Alexa, et al.

If you think I am making anything referenced above up to be fodder for a novel, please do a little research. But do it kind of quickly, please.

The video below is just short of 20 minutes in length. I suggest you watch it. I also suggest that after you’ve watched it, you send it on to as many people as you think you may care about in the world.

Let me know your thoughts after watching it.
