Gut Venom Makes Us Happy?
Re: Isn’t serotonin a good thing? Scientists call it the “confidence molecule,” and it’s supposed to be a “happiness chemical,” along with dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins. Serotonin is supposed to “mediate satisfaction, happiness, and optimism.”
Welcome to the Age of Manipulation and the Global Plantation.
It all starts in kindergarten, a human garden with teachers as gardeners and children as passive plants.
We’re all victims of Corporate Greed, Fake News, and Science Fiction (not the Buck Rogers kind).
According to Ray Peat …
“Serotonin research is relatively new, but it rivals estrogen research for the level of incompetence and apparent fraudulent intent that can be found in professional publications.”
90 percent of the serotonin in the human body is found in the gut, not in the brain.
It must be important for gut health, right?
Inject a tiny amount of pure gut serotonin into your arm and it hurts like a hornet sting.
That’s because serotonin puts the Ouch! in hornet venom … and …
Gila monster venom
sting ray venom
blue-ringed octopus venom
imperial cone snail venom
banana spider venom
At least every banana spider bite has a silver lining — a second chemical in its venom makes your softy get lofty while you’re writhing in pain.
Masochists can pop some SSRIs to make the pain last as long as possible.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are “considered relatively safe and cause fewer side effects than other kinds of medication used to treat depression.”
Unfortunately, SSRIs can cause “problems (listed as plural) with erection or ejaculation.”
I don’t know about you, but that wouldn’t make me very “satisfied, happy, and optimistic.”
Banana spiders are kinder than physicians. They serve a passion potion with their poison.
You want a safer and more accessible way to feel what a jolt from serotonin feels like?
Grab a handful of stinging nettle leaves.
Serotonin is “in some of the most dangerous venoms in existence.”
The Beaker Boy (lab guys in face masks and white coats) consider this “a fascinating illustration of serotonin’s versatility.”
A really, really, really healthy liver neutralizes another side effect of serotonin — carcinoid tumors.
But, don’t worry, your friendly neighborhood physician can use a CT scan to see the “spider-like/crab-like change visible in the mesentery due to the fibrosis from the release of serotonin.”
Then said doc can blame your genes, prescribe another round of toxic drugs, and hand you that hackneyed overused lie about people in Denver getting more “background” ionizing radiation than you just sucked up during your CT scan.
Gut venom is an emetic. Serotonin is often involved in GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease).
According to “Study Offers Hope For Chocolate-Loving Reflux Disease Sufferers,” Science Daily, May 23, 2001 …
“‘We found that the chocolate causes a large amount of serotonin to be released from the cells in the intestines,’ says Wei Ming Sun, Ph.D., research scientist, U-M Department of Internal Medicine. ‘The serotonin causes the lower esophageal sphincter to relax. The relaxation means the ‘door’ between the esophagus and stomach is opened and acid is allowed to flow back up to the esophagus.'”
Gut venom can keep a man’s soldier from saluting. It can also keep a woman’s clitoris from returning the salute.
Irwin Goldstein, M.D. (“The Central Mechanisms of Sexual Function,” Boston University School of Medicine, Feb. 7, 2003) wrote …
“In 1990, [Kevin E.] McKenna and his colleague Lesley Marson identified the area of the brain that controls spinal-mediated erections. This cluster of neurons in the hindbrain (an evolutionary ancient part of the brain that controls blood pressure and heart rate) is called the paragigantocellular nucleus (PGN). The investigators found that the PGN neurons send most of their axons down to the erection-generating neurons in the lower spinal cord. There the PGN neurons release the neurotransmitter serotonin, which inhibits erections by opposing the effects of proerectile neurotransmitters.
“This discovery may have important implications for people who take drugs that enhance levels of serotonin, such as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that are used to treat depression and other mental health disorders. These drugs often cause sexual dysfunction as a side effect, most commonly delayed or blocked ejaculation in men and a reduced sexual desire and difficulty reaching orgasm in women. The work by McKenna and Marson helps explain how this common and troublesome SSRI side effect may occur. By increasing levels of serotonin in the CNS, the SSRIs may tighten the brain’s built-in controls on erection, ejaculation, and other sexual functions.”
Incidentally, LSD blocks the action of serotonin. Just saying.

A woman had symptoms of arthritis (attachment, a centrifugal syndrome).
She tended to tuck her left thumb under her fingers, and her left leg was stiff.
I asked her, “Let me ask you a crazy question? When you think of your symptoms, what’s the first color that pops into your mind?”
“Black,” she replied.
She had a Death Imprint from seeing her grandfather in his coffin as a child.
Black represented her grandfather, NOT the Death Imprint.

Hello Atom! I have some questions regarding this blog entry and your first comment:
1) As it is clear that serotonin is a “venom” to the health of the gut – and therefore the entire organism – and there is evidence showing that dopamine is a “tonic”, what are some Solar Sync Nutritional and lifestyle suggestions for improving the production and metabolism of dopamine? It seems as though there are millions of links on the search engines for research being done to improve serotonin levels in the body, but very little for its “tonic” co-worker…a coincidence?
2) The mother trauma/conflict engram and the father trauma/conflict engram – with a broad variety of subtle variations – are common the world over, and may be seen as the source for many different personal and physical challenges people are presented with. You have written extensively on the mother/father traumas, and in your excellent blog entry, “The Matrix Was Mom & Pop”, you quote Adano Ley as saying: ““If you would only complete your past, it would go away”…what does he mean, especially in regards to these issues? Along with the therapeutic yawning-with-pandiculation combination you have popularized, what are some specific things people can do to address mother and/or father traumas?

1) Dopamine increases by expectation.
If you don’t get “it,” you get a serotonin bath.
If you get “it,” you can upgrade from hormones (which all have downsides) to Qi.
2) Ideally, reliving (not just remembering) the past, and doing what one should have at the time, is the ultimate remover of a Cognitive Shock.
This is known as “burning the seeds of the karma” in India.
All other ways are like mowing crabgrass instead of pulling it up by the roots.

Neville Goddard called this “revision”. Thanks !

Neville Goddard on revision:
“Now this is how we do it. At the end of my day, I review the day; I don’t judge it, I simply review it. I look over the entire day, all the episodes, all the events, all the conversations, all the meetings, and then as I see it clearly in my mind’s eye, I rewrite it. I rewrite it and make it conform to the ideal day I wish I had experienced. I take scene after scene and rewrite it, revise it, and having revised my day, then in my imagination I relive that day, the revised day, and I do it over and over in my imagination until this seeming imagined state begins to take on to me the tones of reality. It seems that it’s real, that I actually did experience it and I have found from experience that these revised days, if really lived, will change my tomorrows. When I meet people tomorrow that today disappointed me, they will not tomorrow, for in me I have changed the very nature of that being, and having changed him, he bears witness tomorrow of the change that took place within me. It is my duty to take this garden and really make it a garden by daily using the pruning shears of revision.”

Watch Johnny Carson’s thumbs at the end of his final episode on The Tonight Show (May 22, 1992).
They indicate his grief and emphysema.

Nice one. Can you explain kali worship and the place of no light? Kali mantra clears my mind and leans it toward empowered boredom. I know the occidental apparatus considers kali worship dangerous and many say The power of mantras may cause karmic flux. I feel i’m still young and can stretch out a bit. Kali as destroyer of ego seems to quiet down my restless mind bunches. Thank you

TIME comes in two polarities — a male polarity (Kal) and a female polarity (Kali).
Both can be mastered via a third polarity — FLOW (TIMING).
The “place of no light” is Maha Sunn …
“The vast plain which separates the second grand division of creation or spiritual-material regions from the first, the purely spiritual regions.”
Maha Sunn is called the Rings-Pass-Not in the West, and it takes “the power of 13 Suns” to penetrate.
