    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Even Decapitation Does Not Erase Memories

    I posted a study recently that suggested memories are NOT stored in the brain but are rather somehow capable of being reproduced by chemical messengers (RNA) synthesized by other cells of the organism.

    Autism - A Disease Linked To Mother's Thyroid Function

    Hi all, It's time for another one of my looney posts:-) I remember that in one of his interviews or emails Ray Peat talked about ausitm and said that it's highly corelated with maternal stress during pregnancy.
