Turning Gravity Upside Down

By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog


According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty), “A man is an upside-down tree.”

The arcus senilis corneae (sometimes called a “sodium ring”) invariably forms at the top of the cornea.

It looks suspiciously like gravity’s effect on clarified butter.

The foam floats to the top, the clarified butter stays in the middle, and the heavier precipitate settles to the bottom.

Butter is heated till it melts, then cooled till it hardens into three layers …

1) The top layer contains whey, and is scraped off.

2) The middle layer is clarified butter, and is saved to eat.

3) The bottom layer contains casein, and can be mixed with the whey to form a skin cream.

Maybe a little Bat Time is in order?

Bats are the longest living mammal compared to their size. Their longevity quotient is twice as long as a human being.

Sirsasana (headstand) is the “king” of all the postures, according to Yogis.

Ray Long, M.D. (Anatomy for Arm Balances and Inversions, 2010) wrote …

“The shoulder girdle and arms establish the foundation of Sirsasana. Use co-activation of muscles and ligamentotaxis [continuous longitudinal force] to secure this structure. Externally rotate the upper arm bones by contracting the infraspinatus and teres minor muscles of the rotator cuff. Then engage the triceps to press the edges of the forearms evenly into the mat. Finally activate the pronators teres and quadratus to internally rotate the forearms and press the mounds of the palms (at the base of the index fingers) into the head.”

I’ve devoted thousands of hours to an upside-down lifestyle — headstands, handstands, inversion beds, and inversion boots.

I gave up sleeping while hanging from inversion boots after Adano issued me a warning.

He said they constricted important eye reflexes in the lower legs.

    L. Ron Hubbard distorted Richard Semon’s idea of the Engram, yet his ideas still have merit.

    His book (Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, 1950, 1999) is an informative classic.

    It was required reading for us at Adano Ley’s Texas Insitute of Reflex Sciences.

    I’m not a Scientology hater. Scientology is no better or no worse than any other religion in the world.

    Dianetics has a lot to offer, but let me add that Mind Reading for the Million’s techniques can run circles around Scientology’s E-Meter (electropsychometer),.

    It’s like comparing a fully automatic firearm to a rusty musket.

    I’ll be glad to go up against an E-Meter, and put the matter (and the meter) to rest.


    The above is an excerpt from my new e-book, Mind Reading for the Millions, 2016 — available SOON !!!!! :)

    Hi Atom,
    You mentioned on Patrick’s show that diabetes is cured by sugar.
    How is that done?

      Assuming you’re talking about the real diabetes (Type 1), it’s a protein-wasting disease caused by burning fatty acids instead of glucose. Doctors thought sugar was the problem because they found glucose in the blood and urine, which was actually being rejected by metabolism in favor of aerobic glycolysis. Diabetic ketoacidosis is partly remedied by fruit sugar (especially fructose) as long as it’s in whole fruit form (complete with dietary fiber as “brakes” and potassium as a substitute for insulin).

      Type 1 diabetes is NOT genetic.

      Type 2 “diabetes” and “metabolic syndrome” are just wastepaper basket terms for a variety of symptoms.

        Would you treat “type 2 diabetes” with a low carb diet?

          Re: Would you treat “type 2 diabetes” with a low carb diet?

          Exchanging polyunsaturated fats for saturated and monounsaturated fats so glucose can be better tolerated is a good place to start — in addition to exercise and dietary fiber (not grain fiber).

          Diabetes Type 2 is technically not diabetes, which is a specific “muscle wasting disease.”

          Diabetes Type 2 is a catch-all phrase for various syndromes loosely associated with PUFA overload.

    Hi Atom,

    In general what you think of using an inversion device similar to the Teeter EP-560 Ltd Inversion Table to deal with a herniated disc in the neck?

      You might get some relief. Technologies like Spinedex probably work a lot faster and better. I toured Spinedex’s Scottsdale facility several years ago, and was impressed with what I saw (despite this somewhat corny video) …
