The Fibonacci Numbers and the Platonic Solids

A Cabinet of Qabalistic Curiosities

As we mentioned within the previous post,the 24 reduced Fibonacci numbers when placed around a circle, visibly generate the form of the 5 Platonic solids.

This time around,we are going to look closely at how this strange phenomena occurs.

In Euclidean geometry, the Platonic solids present as being regular,convex polyhedrons. Their faces are congruent regular polygons, with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex. Within classical thought,there are five solids which meet this criteria; each of which is named according to its specific number of faces.

Plato in his work ‘Timaeus’ writing around C.350 BCE, made a connection between these 5 polyhedra and the classical elements.

He equated the tetrahedron with the element of fire,the cube with that of Earth,the octahedron with Air,the iscosahedron with Water and the dodecahedron with the quintessence or the heavens and the constellations.

In terms of a connection with Lurianic qabalah,Leonora Leet,in her book ‘The secret Doctrine Of The Kaballah’,equates…

How and Why Your Brain Makes its Own Cannabinoids

Dear Neuroscientist, how about and stop playing around with consciousness.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

As you probably already know, unlike water, alcohol and many top-selling pharmaceuticals, it’s impossible to overdose on Cannabis. What you might not realise, however, is that this remarkable attribute of Cannabis stems in part from the fact the human body actually produces its own ‘endogenous’ (made in the body) cannabinoids (endocannabinoids). Cannabinoids, whether formed in the brain or inhaled via a vaporiser for example, fit neatly into a series of specialised receptors located throughout the body, with their greatest concentration in: the hippocampus (regulates memory); the cerebral cortex (cognition); the cerebellum (motor coordination); the basal ganglia (movement); the hypothalamus (appetite); and, the amygdala (emotions). Cannabinoid receptors are similarly found in “every animal species down to the sponge”, said Dr Donald Abrams, Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of California San Francisco, Chief of Hematology / Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and a leading medical…

11 mind-blowing facts about your body’s endocannabinoid system

Thank you for the truth about the human endocannabinoid system.

How is it that one plant – cannabis – can treat so many different illnesses?

It’s a great question and luckily there is a great answer based on scientific research.

The answer lies in our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Most people have yet to hear about the ECS, but as the world comes to better understand this crucial system, we continue to unlock the secrets of cannabis as medicine while understanding more about human health in general.

Here are some quick facts to get you up to speed – some of them might shock you!

#1) The endocannabinoid system was discovered in the late 1980s when researchers were studying how THC interacted with the body. For reasons we’ll get into, the ECS would soon be considered more significant than all other neuroscience discoveries combined.

#2) In the early 1990s another…

Cannabinoids and Homeostasis

Standard

Very well said. 🙂

theganjageekBLOG

Deep within the brain just above the brain stem is a cluster of nerve cells called the hypothalamus.Your body has developed a hightly honed ability to achieve an internal stateof equilibrium, reffered to as homeostasis.The hypothalamus contains cannabinoid receptors, and research shows that the endocannabinoids that bind to these receptors help regulate homeostasis. Disruptions in this process, through illness, injury or medication, can affect homeostasis.This system of “checks and balances” tokeep you functioning on an even keel is influenced by the endocannabinoid system. Both internal (endogenous) and external cannabinoids (those found in cannabis) affect the cannabinoid system, which means they have a role in this balancing act. This structure is involved in the endocrine (hormone) system and helps regulate key processes such as:


-Body temperature
-Appetite
-Thirst
-Heart rate
-Blood pressure
-Sleep cycles
-Blood PH
-Water Balance
-Blood Sugar
