I missed the TED talk too but here is a video of him talking with people after his speech. There's lots of background noise but it becomes easier to hear as the video goes on.

Thanks Odyssey, he sure does not mince words, although had a hard time hearing him as you said and it would be need to read a transcript of his impromptu talk.

Golden ratio / golden section / golden mean / φ = 1.6180339887... ≈ 1.618

[quote author=http://jsqg.sport.org.cn/en/tips/others/2011-12-09/368423.html]Golden Section Ratio for comfortable temperature: human feels most comfortable in temperature between 22°C to 24°C. The reason is that normal temperature of human body 37°C multiplying 0.618 {golden ratio} equals 22.8°C, in which temperature metabolism, circadian rhythm and functions are all in the best condition.[/quote]

[quote author=Theodor Landscheidt / The Golden Section: A Cosmic Principle]About 10 minutes before 3 p.m. the threshold is higher by half. As can be seen in the bottom plots, at the same time numbness from anesthesia lasts several times longer than at night. So we ought to visit the dentist in the early afternoon, just at the time indicated by the major of the golden section, marked by triangles. {Paper available in HTML at: _http://bourabai.narod.ru/landscheidt/consider.htm}[/quote][quote author=Theodor Landscheidt / The Golden Section: A Cosmic Principle]Figure 18: Circadian rhythms in the Golden section [...]. Within cycles from midnight [...] to midnight, marked by arrows, threshold of tooth pain and duration of numbness from scandicain or lidocaine injection show a strong maximum at the major (0.618) of the Golden section, whereas the minor is linked to a maximum in retention of alcohol in the blood. {'Figure 18' can be seen by following the link, but I have also attached 'Figure 18' below. The data shows that numbness to pain peaks at the 0.618 mark of each day, corresponding to around 3 p.m.}[/quote]

This paper looks relevant, though I can't understand it:[quote author=Cristina Stan, C.P. Cristescu, M. Agop / Golden mean relevance for chaos inhibition in a system of two coupled modified van der Pol oscillators]{Abstract available here: _http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0960077906004152}[/quote]

Maybe Jack found a way to keep himself in that "golden section" period of high numbness to pain, sort of "freeze the clock" at that instant for eternity. That could explain why his torso's been numb for some time now.

How to translate this mathematically? Like, in terms of 'van der Pol oscillators'? Um, maybe he got some sort of eternal unchanging sine wave, or he did away with oscillation and instead obtained a constant (a line stretching out to infinity)...

EDIT: Talk was only about 20 minutes long, but he revealed a bunch of new stuff (new to me, anyway). Apparently he had them do some cosmetic surgery on himself (liposuction, I think) without anaesthetic and also injected himself with MRSA so that he could prove the CT works for pain control and preventing infection. He says it worked on both counts!

He injected himself with MRSA? OMG, that is just crazy, IMO. It is stunts like this that will lead people to believe that he is just a lunatic and will give CT a bad name, even if it does work. :shock:

Oh, he's alive. He's a total mad scientist but he's alive.

Another update on my CT experiment:
I've added ice blocks to my baths now. The tap water was warming up so the ice can bring it down to 49-50 degrees F. I've been staying in for an hour and my skin has gone back to being cherry red afterwards. I'm not shivering while in the tub but my post bath shivering has gone from being minimal to being at about an hour or so of harder shivering followed by milder shivering for another hour or so. I've stopped weighing myself just so I won't obsess over the scale but I've lost inches from various body parts. Mood remains good but not quite as freakishly high as when I first started. Sleep remains good too.

I'm gonna be taking a little vacation to the Grand Canyon next month and while I'm in Phoenix I'm planning to get a few cryosauna treatments to see what they're like.

Jeez, this is all so weird.

Thanks dugdeep. I missed it, but 'MamaGrok' posted a transcript and summary on Jack's forum.

I'm a little creeped out, to be honest. He's some kind of cold vampire now... When summer hits, will the MRSA come back to life and bite him? Is he banking on keeping his torso numb forever?

The thing I don't like about Jack is, his theory screws all the people in hot environments. He doesn't say it, but it's obvious that the Equator is not a part of Jack's Holy Trinity. He wrote that warm-adapted people have to eat lots of carbs and walk around fat. What?

Here's the summary of the talk by 'MamaGrok' posted here _http://forum.jackkruse.com/showthread.php?611-Dr-Kruse-TedX-talk-to-be-streamed-between-4-amp-5pm-today-Sat-Mar-31&p=9565&viewfull=1#post9565 :

Well, as of 2 minutes ago, he's still posting on his forum :D

He's still going on a lot about "Factor X" which, as far as I can gather, is some factor that ties together the whole thing; the diet, the CT, HCG etc. He says it's what has kept the hidden pathway accessible despite 2.5 million years or so that we haven't been using it. He says he won't be revealing Factor X until his book is released.

Megan is partly right—Jack's dying, and rebirthing each moment!
Sort of.
Maybe not.
Okay. Fibonacci series, golden ratio, fractals. Oscillations (waves!) a.k.a. our body "cycles": circadian, ultradian, infradian. The SCN is "pacemaker" for our oscillations.

Someone suggested hibernation as Factor X, but Jack responded that we hibernate every night. What does that mean in terms of oscillations? Say, human cycles have shorter periods, thus we zoom through each iteration, while a bear's hibernation takes months (longer periods)?

Looking at it "fractally": each day is a tiny iteration of each year. The day can be divided into more sunlight vs less sunlight. Same goes for the year. The bear gorges itself during the "more sunlight" part of the year, then feeds on its own body fat during the "less sunlight" part of the year. The human feels hungry during the "more sunlight" part of the day, then stops feeling hungry during the "less sunlight" part of the day.

(Of course Jack says to rewire ourselves to use temp and not light, but my point here is the fractals.)

For example, we could make a "winter" for ourselves each "night"!

Jack said that Factor X is the reason Nature has not extinguished the Ancient Pathways within us. I think the pathways remain because we still use them, but in hi-freq oscillations. So Factor X could indeed be Phi, in the sense that everything is fractal and can be "scaled" up or down.

(Btw, "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" sounds fractal...)


Skip these dull quotes, they're just here for documentation purposes:
[quote author=http://ajpregu.physiology.org/content/301/4/R987.abstract]Brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis occurs episodically in an ultradian manner approximately every 80–100 min during the waking phase of the circadian cycle [...][/quote][quote author=http://jbr.sagepub.com/content/4/2/139.abstract][...] photoperiodic responses of mammals and birds may affect the control of energy balance and thermoregulation. Exposure to short photoperiod can lower the set point for body temperature regulation in birds and mammals, as well as the voluntarily selected body temperature in ectothermic lizards. This decrease is accompanied by a reorganization of circadian or ultradian rhythms of body temperature, particularly an increase in periods spent at rest with minimum body temperatures. Short photoperiod is also used as an environmental cue for induction of seasonal torpor or facilitation of hibernation. During winter, cold tolerance of small mammals is improved by an increase of nonshivering thermogenesis in brown fat. Thermogenic capacity of brown fat (respiratory enzymes, mitochondria, uncoupling protein) is enhanced in response to short photoperiod. [...] Moreover, an exposure to short photoperiod prior to low temperatures may act in preparing brown fat for facilitated thermogenesis during acclimation to cold. This shows that photoperiodic control not only affects energy balance indirectly via the control of reproduction or body mass, but may directly interact with central control of thermoregulation and may influence the process of acclimatization.[/quote]

I'm still experiencing shivering in a cold bath - with my arms out - although less than before, and agree with you about rewarming involving a lot of 'harder shivering followed by a milder shivering' - and that's with only being in the bath for a maximum of twenty five minutes so far!

I wrote in the cryogenic chamber therapy thread:

Just want to say that I have no plans to immerse myself in ice baths. No until the ice age arrives and I have no choice! I think all that Kruse had uncovered/theorized is very interesting, but I also think he has an idee fixe and is searching through all the literature with that idea and picking out everything that matches and perhaps ignoring what does not.

Surely, humans evolved in warmer climates also, and since then, genes are very mixed all over the world, so there is no "one size fits all" solution, though there do seem to be a few general principles that are useful for everyone with only rare exceptions.

The shivering afterward is the worst part. Yesterday it wasn't so bad (maybe I'm getting used to the colder water temp) but I went outside right afterward and did some yardwork which made it easier too. The other bad part is just the time it takes sitting around in a tub for an hour. I read, sing and listen to music or a podcast and that makes the time go by faster. I'm thinking of getting a portable DVD so I can watch a movie sometimes. Truthfully, I'm surprised I've kept this up as long as I have. I must like it.

I've finally been able to submerge my feet and keep them in-- except when I'm flipped over on my chest. No more balancing myself on the side of the tub and lowering myself in crane-style. I just get into the tub like a normal person. :rolleyes: The first time my feet radiated heat after. Now they range from cold to regular temp after. My hands have been a bit more difficult to acclimate. I'm still not a fan of cold air on me and still sleep under all of my blankets most of the time. A few times I've been hot at night and slept with no blankets but that's not the norm yet.

And speaking of singing, I dunno if it's just my imagination but my singing voice has improved. Eat your heart out, Ambrosia! :lol:

Some intriguing concepts from his latest post:

http://jackkruse.com/cold-thermogenesis-8/

All life on our planet came from the oceans first. We know this to be true as well. And because of this , maybe we should consider studying extremophile forms of life here on earth today might explain the complexities of how biochemistry allows for life to exist at all in a thermoplastic environment. [...]

Our hominid species may have adapted during this warming trend, but the DNA we inherited came from animals that were cold adapted. Evolution uses epigenetics to determine adaptation to environments. We have discarded the strict definition of genetic determinism in the last ten years. We know today that the power of epigenetics dictates a lot more about newer generations adaptations than we even knew since the 1950’s. The implications of this information now has to make us look at some of our own long standing assumptions about how living cells work in cold and warm environments to see how our cells react to a thermoplastic environment. [...]

FACTOR X is the evolutionary reason……and Factor X was an evolutionary bottleneck that resulted in the natural selection of the Ancient Pathway (leptin-melanocortin system) of the mammalian brain. {More info at The leptin melanocortin pathway and the control of body weight: lessons from human and murine genetics. Cold adaptation produces a hormonal response which increases pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). A deficiency of POMC is related to obesity}. I think most humans are not really ambiently aware of how how basic circadian mismatches destroy our biology slowly via the “slow erosion of metabolic function.” This factor is the source of most of our neolithic diseases modern hominids face today. [...]

Sleep and cold the environment, were our ancestors primordial condition and as such, this was evolutions starting point for life on our planet. This is why even today 90% of the living biome on Earth remains in a freezing cold environment. Humans believe because they are the penultimate species of evolution there current environment is a more important factor than it really is. That is a very faulty assumption. Life on this planet evolved from the deep oceans to land. Therefore the biochemistry that dictate’s modern energy generation can not be generalized to all life forms on this planet. It can be studied on those mammals, animals, and bacteria that have undergone natural selection to a warmer climate and have assumed a warm adapted diet. Just because we use and live this way, has no bearing on what we evolved from, or if energy generation is somehow more efficient or less efficient in a different thermoplastic environment. Sleep is the most important part of our biology for Optimal living in my opinion. I begin every hack I do in the clinic using sleep as the basis. [...]

Modern epidemics are not caused by genetics. This is also a medical clinical fact that gets lost in the modern scientific literature but you would never get that from reading the literature on diabetes. In fact the totality of the diabetes literature would have you believe the exact opposite. This is a neolithic thought that has hurt all modern diabetics and is at the seat of why modern medicine has failed to find a cure. Mother Nature has a cure for insulin resistance in all eutherian mammals. That is cold exposure of there peripheral nervous systems. The stimulus to this pathway begins when the mammal is exposed to a high dietary carbohydrate diet that is found in long light cycles on this planet. This is how the gut senses the environment and this signals are transmitted to the brain via the vagus nerve. Modern biochemistry books and biochemists stop here…….They immediately go to what we know about energy generation in cells. But I am focusing in on what they have failed to realize.

When dietary carbohydrates are high it stimulates the eutherian mammal to begin to upregulate omega 6 content into every cell membrane of their body slowly through the autumn while temperature falls. It speeds up as the temperature drops in winter. This process is completely independent of dietary sources as I laid out in CT-3. Why does this occur in all mammals? Because to cell membranes to function in cold weather it requires all land based mammals from cold adapted ancestors to have an EFA ratio of 4:1 for optimal signaling. In water based mammals who are cold adapted, like whale’s, walrus, and seals they face steepper temperature gradients in the water that require a much lower EFA ratio (essential fatty acids) in their cell membranes to function properly. This lowered ratio of EFA’s also changes the biology of adipocyte biochemistry. It favors the accumualtion of surface fat but not of visceral fat. Visceral fat is used to burn first to maintain core temperature in these animals. In land based cold adapted mammals like the polar bear the same is true. When they emerge from their den in spring they are shredded of all visceral fat and no longer insulin resistant, and have the biggest and strongest muscles they will have all year. Their body composition is at its best at this time. They accomplish all this without needing any exercise to do so. [...]

As our brain expanded, our guts shrunk in length. We only needed a smaller gut when we become adapted to eat predominantly fat and protein from animals. A diet high in fat and protein was also used to fuel encephalization of hominids. Larger brains meant we needed pelvic changes to become bipedal and it also extinguished the need to hibernate. Hibernation needs were shrunk into our sleep cycle during stage 3 and 4 sleep. As we became smarter we became able to control our environment. This is how a sped up epigenetic plan set up modern man to become more susceptible to many biochemical mismatches.

When our recent ancestors lost the ability to hibernate, they also lost their best way to fight insulin resistance. Since those ancestor mammals ate carbohydrates in a proper circadian cycles, purely controlled by their seasonal growth, the biochemical systems in those mammals readily adapted to these new states without much problem. This biologic adaptation required alteration of the leptin receptor to function with higher levels of cytokines present. It appears natural selection also made adjustments to liver biochemistry and bioenergergenics to mirror those changes made in the brain.

Every eutherian mammal born on this planet up until 2.5 million years ago had to live by the dictums of their environment. When hominids evolved, much later, this situation radically was altered. Hominids remain the only mammal on the planet who can 100% control its own environment. This allows our species to create mismatches at great speed, as our brain continued to develop over the last 2.5 million years. This trend dramatically speeds up all our chemical clocks in every cell of our body that is controlled by circadian biology. This is well known by modern science. The Nobel Prize of 2009 tied this all to telomere lengths in our cells. All mammals have circadian signaling hardware in their brains that wire directly tot he cell cycle machinery in every single cell of their bodies. This means that modern hominids are the most sensitive mammal to any circadian mismatch compared to their ancestors. Moreover, since they have the most advanced brain in the mammalian family, they are subjected to the greatest risk of neolithic diseases due to these mismatches. Humans get diseases that no other wild animal gets for this reason. Humans get autoimmune disease when our most recent ancestors, the chimp can not. They do not have zonulin and we do {Zonulin is related to leaky gut, leaky blood brain barrier and leaky skin} . The reason is because our guts are adapted to different diets that lead to our encephalazation. Animals domesticated by humans suffer the same fates as we do, ironically. Wild mammals tend not to get these issues because they live by the rule that Mother Nature determines for them in their own selected environments.

The ultimate paradox of modern hominids is that they evolved the ability to live on a warm adapted diet and in a warm environment, but that they retain the cold adapted biochemistry buried in their brains even though they do not need to use it presently. Evolution has not extinguished this ability for a very good reason, in my view. One reason is that the geologic record shows that our planet undergoes cyclic cooling and warming over longer epochs. This will keep the pathway active epigenetically over thousands of years. The main reason it has not been extinguished in my opinion, is that this ancient pathway determines ultimate survival of the mammalian species and it was vital at one time in evolutionary history. Modern hominids have an advanced nervous system, but they still are tied to the evolutionary family they come from long ago. They are not divorced from the rules of Mother Nature even though they act as if they are. This ties modern humans directly back to Factor X. The paradox is that they remain blind to it even today.

RADICAL RULE #7: Since modern hominids are unaware of the thermoplastic nature of their own biochemistry, they have never controlled for it in any modern biochemical study or study on nutrition. This means that any assumptions made in biochemical dogma now needs to be questioned. The hints of these paradoxes are found in NASA astroanauts, the Sherpa abilities, Vasper Technology, Russian Winter Olympic dominance, Lance Armstrong’s ability to beat cancer and win 7 races, Michael Phelps eight gold medals in one Olympics, Wim Hof’s amazing abilities, and the use of cold in human transplantation harvesting, and modern neurosurgical procedures bring these paradoxes to life. They show us today they are not paradoxes at all. They remain abilities that evolution built into our ancestors and that were passed down into our genome and hardwired into our brain for a reason. We remain blinded to it because few modern humans live in this environment. Today this remains completely unstudied as our population, while they get more sick and mediocre with each passing decade. Elite athletes are the first humans to push these boundaries and to open our eyes to this possibility that this may exist. We are in inning one of this ballgame right now.

RADICAL THEORY # 8: Modern life is as bad to us as a vegan or SAD diet. Lab results we draw on people show this. Cortisol patterns and hormone panels are a mess in humans when they are studied. Moreover, eating an ancesteral paleolithic diet is a better choice than others, but it can hide the cellular effect of stem cell depletion by other forms of modern circadian mismatches. technology use at night is an easy one. Modern paleo’s make this mistake way to often. The risk of a Paleo diet for them is that the diet is so good that it could blind your consciousness that you might be depleting your life force. This will show up when disease develops in the back half of your life span. This implies that what you think is really safe………may not be safe at all. Light after sunset from technology is as bad as eating the wrong diet for our Ferrari engines and our brains because it destroys the cortisol diurnal rythmns. And it means that your ultimate proof wont come until its too late for reversal………unless you prove it to yourself today by testing.

RADICAL THEORY #9: Modern humans cannot out exercise bad choices from diet or from technology. Modern life is plain stressful and can hurt us even if we remain oblivious to it. Moreover, just eating an ancestral template, while over exercising like mad and eating safe starches 24/7, is not justified by your activity level. If you also play on you computers, iphone, and ipad all night long, and think it has no biologic consequences to your stem cells is a neolithic thought that just might kill you early. Trying to get all cute and use food and supplements to hide bad decisions wont work either. Just increasing resveratrol, curcumin, and metformin won’t allow you to “out supplement” poor choices. Exercise must be hormetic and within our circadian cycles too. If it’s not, you will become a dead marathon runner or a ex-NFL player with a short life span who people wonder why and how that body crashed so fast? You can’t fool your telomeres, but you can fool yourself with your thoughts or “feelings”. The quality of your health is a summation of great decisions consistently. These decisions are all based upon the quality of your thoughts presently

RADICAL THEORY #10: Your modern beliefs are usually the cause of your ultimate decline. Become fully aware that the human mind is a wonderful servant but usually is a horrible master. This will be a tough one for you to swallow because it was for me; but it is an ultimate truth. We are often our own worst enemy. This is why we often why we see success in going against the grain in Wall Street, Medicine, and in fish, like salmon. Our community must beware of this rule. The paleo tribe are experts at using modern technology to help it move forward……..but if it is not applied correctly it might make you a good looking corpse with no stem cells when your telomeres are too short to change it. I do not want you to believe me. On the contrary, I want you to test me! You can check my theory easily yourself. Draw your own telomere test right now at Spectracell labs and test your own dogma.

RADICAL THEORY #11: Cold adapted mammals can do things warm adapted ones can’t because at extremes chemistry, physics, and biology change when the temperature is colder. All biochemical reactions slow down in cold so Mother Nature responded to this environmental challenge by speeding up epigenetics. This is where Factor X plays its largest role in mammalian biology to compensate for the slowing of biochemistry to speed up reproduction for survival. 90% of life on this planet is cold adapated as we speak today. Our anthropocentric point of view has resulted in the classification of cold-adapted organisms as extremophiles, even though environments of permanently cold temperatures (around 0°C) abound on Earth, especially when one considers that these include not only the polar and alpine regions but also deep-sea waters.

GEEK ALERT: Psychrophiles, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic, have successfully colonized these cold environments and are able to grow efficiently at sub-zero temperatures. This adaptation requires a vast array of structural and physiological adjustments in order to counteract the reduction in chemical reaction rates due to the low temperature of the habitat. Most scientists study human physiology in mesophilic environmental conditions. This is a big problem. The reason is that humans have completely different abilities in cold and the resultant physiologic changes are often 180 degrees opposite that one would expect. This fact has blinded many scientists and physicians to some deep realities about human biology. Recently, fish have been found in our polar seas that are believed to be over 10,000 years old.

ORGANIC BIOCHEMIST GEEK ALERT: Temperature is one of the most important environmental factors for life as it influences most biochemical reactions. Low temperatures slow down and strongly inhibit chemical reaction rates catalyzed by enzymes, the ‘work- horses’ of cell metabolism. The effect of temperature on chemical reactions is basically described by the Arrhenius equation: k = Ae -Ea/RT , where k is the rate constant, A is Ea is the so-called activation energy, R is the gas constant (8.31 kJ mol ~1) and T is the temperature in kelvins. Accordingly, any decrease in temperature will induce an exponential decrease of the reaction rate, the extent of which depends on the value of the activation energy. The thermodependence of the activity can be approximately expressed by the Q10 value that is normally close to 2- 3. This is the main factor preventing the growth, at low temperatures, of non-adapted organisms. So biochemistry of cold says we should have slow growth patterns based upon the biochemistry. I told you earlier that evolution has sped up tremendously as time has gone on. So the question remains is, how did evolution overcome slower growth? Since the cell cycle was slowed by cold it sped up epigenetics to compensate for the slower growth. That is the basis of FACTOR X. It is the most important part of my theory because it is why the human brain was naturally selected for in a mismatched environment. It is an evolutionary factor by itself.

RADICAL THEORY #12: The Ancient Mammalian Pathway naturally selects for the cold adapted paleolithic diet in all cold adapted eutherian mammals. To access this food source their nervous systems were adapted to remain insensate to pain after and adaptation period. This period differs across species but it is present even in humans after two weeks of peripheral surface cold sensation.

The best food source then for a cold adapted mammals biochemistry would be a ketogenic version of the paleolithic diet that has a high omega 3 content. The reason is simple. More omega 3’s are needed in cold environments to provide for accurate cell membrane signaling due to increased double bounds in their chemical structures.

VLC WARNING: VLC in a warm adapted world has serious limitations. Be aware of them.
PALEO DIET WITH METCONS: carries even larger risks for the modern human.

RADICAL THEORY #13: The leptin receptor is primordially a cold based electron counter for nutrients from foods. I think it evolved the ability to function in warm environments as mammals evolved onto land and took the planet over. Our earliest ancestors however began in the cold polar seas and on cold polar land masses. The biochemistry we know today in textbooks only represents the warm adapted mammalian pathways, and as such, are not complete in my view.

TRAINING FICTION: Ketosis is most efficient mammalian fuel in the cold not carb loading. Carb loading is a thought born of only understanding the warm adapted mammalian pathways. There are numerous examples of athletes using the cold adapted pathways having superior performance to the warm adapted pathways. The issue is that too few have decided to access it because it takes 24-36 months to reach those peak levels. The Sherpa’s remain the best example of this in today’s modern world. They have been extensively studied by NASA. This blind spot needs to be studied in depth by modern day scientists who are not just elite coaches. Burning fat (FFA) actually increases our VO2max when the ancient pathway is induced. This information is directly in counter distinction to published data because we remain unaware of the cold adapted pathways in humans. It is currently unstudied, but we have numerous examples of humans with exceptional performance in cold environments that few can explain until now.

At extremes, biochemistry changes in nature for our benefit. Evolution has a plan for this because it tapped it many times before. REALIZE THAT modern trainers are oblivious to this therefore they regurgitate what is best from the literature that is based upon mammals who are warm adapted eating a warm adapted diet! Can you say major mismatch! The best example of this today is the technology of Vasper which can not be explained by the published data in modern exercise physiology books. This should be a huge clue that we are missing some major factors. Vasper is a known entity in NASA research. Vasper has licensed the NASA technology generated from the Sherpa’s in the 1970’s.

RADICAL THEORY #14: Why do humans remain blind to all this? They never face a true winter any longer as do other wild mammals. Behavioral adaptation is most important for the survival of human species. It includes e.g., well heated houses, good thermal insulation of clothing, warm vehicles and short exposures to cold. In fact, behavioral adaptation can work so well, that no physiological adaptation is developed in winter, as shown in young urban residents. These neolithic creations are why we do not see the metabolic benefits of this pathway in modern humans often. When modern humans become aware of them and their benefits they may consider building a small part of their current environment for cold thermogenesis. Modern humans may find that when they cold adapt it will help treat diseases due to mismatches in circadian biology.
Warm clothes and buildings are neolithic creations that kept us in the dark about the ancient pathways benefits. Wild mammals can’t do what our brain allows us to do. Mismatches are not just not good for humans in our modern world where it constantly seems like it is summer time due to artificial light and 24/7 access to carbohydrates.

RADICAL THEORY #15: Neolithic diseases of aging is total cellular chaos…….health is perfect cellular order, in between is cellular mediocrity. We need to decide are searching for optimal or not. Optimal requires a cold adapted physiology………..sub optimal is found on the pathways in most modern biochemistry books.

Jack said, "Cold, dark and sleepy."
He said that sleep is our primordial condition.

All is lessons fractals. As above so below. Cycles within cycles. We wake up, we are born, we have a burst of cortisol (which is why heart attacks occur in the mornings) to spur us on. Polar bears come out of hibernation with peak muscularity. We are greeted by the light and warmth of daytime/summer. Carbs are growing, carbs are eaten. Then evening/autumn, everybody is already insulin resistant, temperature falls. Cells stock up on Omega 6, causing us to grow surface fat. The longer the evening/autumn, the lower the Omega 6:3 ratio needed. We start producing oxytocin; it makes us sleepy. Now winter, sleep, cold, darkness, death. Autophagy happens (reduced autophagy equals cancer!), old cells are broken down and recycled, our immune system comes alive. Polar bears go into hibernation, we go to bed. Polar bears feed off their body fat, we eat ketogenic diets. Winter/cold/sleep is our "reset". It resets our insulin resistance, it resets our leptin resistance. Then the cycle, or cycles, begin anew.

What happens in Neolithic warmth, or our current use of technology to make it eternally warm, is we've trapped ourselves at the point of the cycle where we eat carbs, where it's warm, where it's light. You can't do that without consequences. We've "burnt out" by staying there without resetting. Hence, our deterioration. Jack is telling us to freeze ourselves and eat keto; he's giving us the Winter we've needed for so long.

And we can even look at bigger cycles. Like glacials and interglacials. Jack subscribes to the aquatic ape theory, so could that be another "cycle"? Coming out of cold water onto sunny land? (Maybe the aquatic ape theory is wrong, and it's just to symbolize how we came from the water in the womb.)

It's funny that Jack's talking about cycles, and going back to our true cycles, when this Grand Cycle is coming to a close. And that humans are gonna get the winter Jack wants us to - shoved down their throats in the form of an Ice Age.
