Wolff, M.D. and Desmond Curran, M.D. Biochemical Aspects on Human Brain, by Holgar Hyden, M.D The British Journal of Psychiatry (2002) 180: 4-5 =A9 2002 The Royal College of Psychiatrists, Remembering delirium, by SIMON FLEMINGER, MRCPsych and On-line health advisory on bromides. The delirium referred to in the following is called temporary delirium: "To study the phenomenology of delirium we need to understand the relationship between the subjective experience at the time of the episode and the person's memory of what happened. The experience often is described in retrospect as dream-like. This may partly reflect the fact that the person is remembering a mental state in which self-consciousness was absent, just as self-consciousness is absent in dreams. It may also reflect a more fundamental connection between the state of dreaming and delirium. This lends weight to the idea that delirium should be regarded more as a disorder of wakefulness than a disorder of consciousness." In obtaining testimony from eye witnesses to highly strange phenomena notation is usually made about whether the witness had been drinking alcohol or ingesting recreational drugs. However, as was discovered by Drs. Wolff and Curran there are substances in our everyday environment that can cause hallucinating or delirium. After evaluating a cohort of 106 individuals they found that alcohol consumption contributed the highest number of "feelings of fear" and delirium, ingesting bromides was the next agent to create this state. Bromides? I wondered what were these researchers referring to and how prevalent were bromides in today's environment. It is my understanding that most individuals are in and out of altered states during their lifetime. According to the research, bromides contributed a significantly to states of delirium or what has been called awake hallucinating. Check out this list of where one can find bromides in their environment. It is considered epidemic in North America: "Bromide Dominance Theory Bromide is an insidious additive used in many consumer products, and as a pesticide. Because of the sheer number of bromide- supplemented products, exposure to this man-made additive has caused a depletion of iodine in human populations. Studies in lab animals provide alarming evidence that even small amounts of bromide exposure can be toxic. A bromide dominance condition may develop when bromide, acquired through environmental, occupational or dietary exposure, causes bromide levels in the body to rise high enough to inhibit iodine enzyme metabolism. Where does bromide come from? Bromide comes from the food we eat=97especially bread=97from drinking water, and from toothpaste, mouthwash, flame-retardants, hair dye and other sources." In earlier e-mails, I suggested that individuals claiming interaction with highly strange events be given a chemistry panel test. In refining that suggestion I further suggest that specifically the test involve cytosine or increased enzyme activity - looking for changes to the RNA production and protein changes in the enzyme activity. Plus, an additional test for toxicity levels looking for the percentage of bromides in the individual's system. Maybe, just for baseline levels of the above panels, ufo researchers need to submit to this type of testing. Just for comparison. UFO researchers are exposed to the same phenomena as the individuals involved in the cases they are studying. That is, searching for physical evidence of "things flying around in the sky." Without finding physical evidence. Perhaps, this type of research could be categorized as a form of delirium. Just saying, not advocating, KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
