Yes, yes, keep tracking is always my issue so I am taking this corona moments to do that.
as for old wisdom, I do have tons and tons old medicinal recipe, most super complicated and some super simple.
mutation taking place in us. I agree. Let me talk about it. I will try, this is THE BEST FOUNDATIONAL view, I always wanted convey but since my I-never-know-what-the-fuck-I-am-doing miind, never got it done.
Let me try[warning! lengthy!!]
In Ayurveda, they connect the physical ecosystem of living beings and ecosystem of information VERY neatly. They call it the combination of “Dravya-guna-karma,” which can not be separated. Dravya is physical layer. gua is whatever we, including other living beings, appreciate in our consciousness.
something we sense, feel, think. so information, cultures, numbers, sensations like cold-hot, happy-unhappy falls in here. just like DNA and codon. DNA is physical existance. and lines up in 3 codons, has significance as information. and karma is time plain progressing. I translate it as time progress just in this context, sequence of actions and reactions in the plain of time progress.
Descartes divided dravya and guna thus, separating, mind-body, unfortunately. on the other hand, Indians keep it all interconnected.
Dravya is physical, in our context, the physical ecosystem, on earth it is all connected including organic and inorganic. big gigantic swirls of life process taking place in the Earth. then, as life swirl is going, creating smaller swirls, living systems be it microorganism, humans, animals, you name it. so it is one as a whole.
Guna is in each smaller swirl, living beings, has consciousness. trees feel its metabolism, humans feel and think. animals feels. for humans, we not only feel physical sensation like cold-hot which is very important factors for keeping metabolism in tact, we also process language, thoughts. for humans this gunas appears to be layers and layers. we Japanese share layers of Japanese-ness in which we process information in Japanese language thus we have distinctive way of appreciating the world compare to say latin americans. Biohackers and xenofeminists process the world in different planes than neonazis and neoliberals, although we obtain data through the same sense devises(eyes and ears). enocomic system is one of the layers, your subculture in which you belong has its own layers. and lastly all the individuals has the his/her/xeir own layers, which we call individual consciousness.
Internet, which is physical plane, guna made of the world of connected network, conveys the informations and create ecosystem of networks of different layers and cultures. each individuals being a node. I do not share the internet traffics that neonazis use and they do not share the nformation networks that I use, queer biohacking anarchy(I do not like ones in violent mindset) gamer networks and I am a node of the entire network of that subculture.
and they all are process in the time plane, karma. just like the patterns of chaos, or mandala of netwroks are constanting acting and reacting.
conclusions: yes as the physical dravya network is greatly influenced in our existence, say corona virus, changing the entire ecosystem process including less of pollution we put out. Our information and thoughts ecosystem, ones in internet network, or in more individual node wise, how we process the information and emotions and thoughts in each one of us.
We are constantly changing and evolving, physical drava ecosystem is constantly changing, which in turn influence how we are processing and appreciating the world, guna, on the time plane, karma. and as Indian says, there is no such thing as “concrete” being. each being is a part of greater network and we are constantly changing. Hence, we can say, we are evolving and mutating and changing always.
wow, this is the best attempt to summarize the foundational view of the entire living system in Ayurveda and I just wanted to try using your “we are evolving” as an opportunity to do so.
as for the recipes, yes I found the plant described in Ayurvedic context and could use it in bronchial, upper respiratory inflammations. I do not know the scientific validity of describing it in Ayurvedic pharmaceutical point of view. but hey, when Ayurveda reached to Tibet, they have to adjust and find all the substitute for Tibatan environments and after 1200 years, it is perfectly addapted. so yes yes yes yes♡
peace peace peace and hoping to go visit EU before too long(I was on the way to go their just before this happened!!)
