If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

" Il posso farlo. Lo voglio. Lo faccio!
Descrivono l'atteggiamento positivo
della persona Larch, il Larice.
Una delle maniere in cui la volontà lavora e trasfoma è quella della capacità di astrarsi.
Sappiamo, anche, che l'energia della libertà coinvolge
in maniera misteriosa la capacità di " allontanarsi dalla forma!"
Una volta che realizziamo che c'è l'interdipendenza fra spirito e materia
sia a livello verticale che orizzontale, impariamo a disidentificarci senza dissociarci !
Stiamo così presenti e, senza cercare di innalzare la nostra coscienza o di trasformare
le nostre incertezze in qualche maniera, semplicemente con l'aiuto di questo rimedio naturale
, Larch ,
approfondiamo la nostra identificazione e l'autostima brilla.
Il centro del Cuore , Secondo Raggio ( Vergine ) , ci identifica con l'Anima - il Cristo in noi -
e in ciò 'andiamo verso il mondo'.
Il prossimo livello è Monadico ( Il divino in noi ) e ci permette
di identificarci con l'aspetto VITA!
Larice aiuta ad ancorare la Volontà al Chakra della Base dove le paure ,
specie della sopravvivenza appaiono prepotentemente e possono paralizzare il nostro avanzare verso la libertà dei nostri ostacoli.
Affontare i nostri tests quotidiani significa poterlo e volerlo fare ,
in ciò la Rivel/azione del coraggio scaturisce e ci libera!
Larch lo sa! L.S.

Coronavirus: What do we know about the artemisia plant?

Madagascar attracted a lot of attention in April when the African island nation announced it was using a local plant to combat coronavirus.
A drink using artemisia plant extracts was promoted by its leader, President Andry Rajoelina.
There's no evidence so far that this plant - whose compounds do work against malaria - can combat Covid-19, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
So what do we know about the plant and its properties?

Where does the plant come from?

Artemisia annua is originally from Asia, but grows in many other parts of the world with sunny and warm conditions.
It's been used in Chinese traditional medicine for more than 2,000 years for treating a number of diseases, including malaria, as well as to relieve pain and combat fever.

In Chinese medicine, it is known as "qinghao."
It is also called sweet wormwood or annual wormwood, and is used as an alternative therapy - and even put into some alcoholic drinks.

Could artemisia work against Covid-19?

President Rajoelina of Madagascar said in April this year that trials conducted on the Covid-Organics drink - which uses artemisia - showed its effectiveness against the disease. He repeated this claim in September.
But no evidence has been shown publicly for this.
And the exact composition of the drink is not known, although the government says more than 60% is derived from the artemisia plant.
Madagascar has also started producing capsules and a solution that can be injected, on which clinical trials have begun.

German and Danish scientists have been testing extracts from artemisia annua plants, which they say showed some effectiveness against the new coronavirus in a laboratory setting.
The research - which hasn't been independently reviewed by other scientists - found that these extracts showed anti-viral activity when used with pure ethanol or distilled water.
These researchers are working with the University of Kentucky to carry out human clinical trials at some stage.
China has been conducting its own tests, based on traditional medicines that use the artemisia annua plant.
And scientists in South Africa have been doing laboratory tests on artemisia annua and another variety of the plant - artemisia afra - for effectiveness against Covid-19. But there are no results as yet.

What does the WHO say about artemisia?

The WHO says it hasn't yet had detailed information about the Madagascar tests.
Jean-Baptiste Nikiema of the WHO's Africa region told the BBC the organisation may get involved later on in trials - depending on what information they get about the early trials.
At the moment, the WHO says there is no evidence that artemisia-derived products work against Covid-19.
It adds that all medicinal plants "should be tested for efficacy and adverse side-effects" through rigorous clinical trials.

How is it used against malaria?

The active ingredient found in the dried leaves of artemisia annua is called artemisinin, and it does work against malaria.
Chinese scientists pioneered the discovery of its properties when they were searching for a cure for malaria in the 1970s.
media captionProfessor Lang Linfu
Artemisinin-based combination therapies - known for short as ACTs - are recommended by the WHO against malaria, especially those types now resistant to chloroquine, which is one of the main drug treatments for the disease.
ACTs contain derivatives of artemisinin combined with other substances, and these reduce the number of malaria parasites in the body.
Increased access to ACTs in malaria-endemic countries has been cited as a key factor in helping reduce the global toll of the disease in the last 15 years.

What are the risks of drug resistance?

Because artemisia annua extracts have started appearing more widely as remedies for malaria, such as in tea, there's concern that unregulated usage could allow the malaria parasite to develop resistance.

There are a number of countries in south-east Asia where this resistance has already been observed.
"We know that over time the [malaria] parasite will start to resist, but this time [period] needs to be as long as possible," says Jean-Baptiste Nikiema of the WHO.
The WHO now discourages the use of non-pharmaceutical forms of artemisinin, concerned that it could lead to growing malarial resistance.

Social Sculpture Joseph Beuys by Leni

E-mail Print PDF



' SOCIAL SCULPTURE '
is a phrase to describe an expanded concept of art that was invented by the artist and co-founder of the German Green Party, Joseph Beuys. Beuys created the term "social sculpture" to embody his understanding of art's potential to transform society.
As a work of art, a social sculpture includes human activity that strives to structure and shape society or the environment. The central idea of a social sculptor is an artist who creates structures in society using language, thoughts, actions, and objects.
Some of the 7,000 Oaks planted between 1982 and 1987 for Documenta 7 (1982).
During the 1960s, Beuys formulated his central theoretical concepts concerning the social, cultural and political function and potential of art.
Indebted to Romantic writers such as Novalis and Schiller, Beuys was motivated by a utopian belief in the power of universal human creativity and was confident in the potential for art to bring about revolutionary change.
These ideas were founded in the social ideas of anthroposophy and the work of Rudolf Steiner, of which he was a vigorous and original proponent.
This translated into Beuys' formulation of the concept of social sculpture, in which society as a whole was to be regarded as one great work of art (the Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk) to which each person can contribute creatively .
Beuys' most famous phrase, borrowed from Novalis,
is "Everyone is an artist ".
(Inspired by the Sept. Letter of the Arcane School).
-We are going to enter in the Fourth Ray Art and Harmony through Conflict , the beginnings are already under our eyes!
This ray will come into power soon and will be prominent in the destinies of India, Germany , Italy , Austria and Brazil . The turmoil in these countries is a preparatory step....</div>
