World renewal through research and education
Information is virus or medicine 2003

Information is changing our health and society. In a frightening way terrorist attacks show us clearly what was missed in the last centuries. We had to learn that backward-looking creeds and ideologies can lead to evolutionary nothingness, hopelessness, depression and/or aggression.

For centuries the prohibition of the pictorial representation of nature and God was manifested by the interpretation of the Koran, thus in subranges of the imagination a fantasy prohibition was fixed, which brings and brought devastating consequences for the believers with a too strict interpretation of the religion commandments. The consequences can be understood if one equates a lifting of the restriction on vision and creativity with a religious transgression and thus transfers the power to act for the future to God alone.

Such a transfer of the future power to God does not correspond to the development of the world, since in the consciousness evolution, realizations of people have contributed to the fact that the development of the own inner world, the neuronal network of the human being and the society are coordinated with the outer world again and again. One could also say that nature, evolution, future power, vision, art and creativity - everything comes from God and therefore also the things contributed by people to the development of the world. A strict separation between God and people leads to the well-known disharmonies in believers (reduction of personality, fears, depressions, dependencies and aggressions) and thus consolidates the power of the powerful through mysticism, as in the Middle Ages in Europe and this led to the persecution and burning of the bringers of knowledge in the Christian world. In the time before the Koran and before the later fatalistic interpretation of the Koran, high cultural and humanistic achievements were produced in the same cultural area. Consider, for example, the pyramids, the Library of Alexandria, poetry, astronomy, architecture, mathematics, medicine and the arts.

A commandment for the people not to be allowed to imagine something unknown to them, evolutionary, things, processes, systems, the future, God, with which they are nevertheless confronted daily, as need or ritual, or not to be allowed to follow their intuition, blocks their imagination. It leads to the fact that the dependencies on the state and the religion are system-immanent, since not imagined, spiritual future constructs so do not originate in the people themselves, but the population is to draw its strength from religion and state leadership - from guidelines and laws, which are given by these. This means that due to the ban on imagination, people cannot create new ideas, images or values for themselves in a backward-looking world, and thus cannot build up contemporary ideals for the future, and this despite the fact that Christ and Mohammed themselves were great visionaries and change-makers.

Without own and new values there is no creative and productive shaping of the future. Evolution and prosperity, both for the individual and for society, is only made more difficult by creativity and vision limitations. The population stops at the developmental stages intended for it, or does not develop according to the natural evolutionary programs of the genes. Therefore, it is not surprising that in backward-looking religious systems and ideologies the reference systems and values of the past are idealized.

There is a struggle for distribution in today with the values of yesterday. As a consequence of this, and out of fear of the new and the foreign, there is a struggle against the value changers who are pushing forward a revolution of consciousness - in other words, who are promoting a social system that is oriented toward the future. The phenomenon described above applies to most self-contained ideologies and belief systems. The increasing distance to extreme fatalists, terrorists and neo-Nazis through cognition, imagination and shaping of the future contributes to the fact that they exclude themselves from the evolving world and live only in their own world - react or act more and more aggressively and, from our point of view, more and more inhumanly.

Who, however, from their fatalistic perception in accordance with their religion, their conviction or from inner necessity and according to God's commandments act as well as from the future and research worlds from which they believe themselves excluded by God's word (with an interpretation of the restriction of the imagination) and in these worlds of the unbelievers they see their enemy images and therefore want to fight and destroy other religions or world views and their symbols (as the terrorist attacks show).

This is easily possible, since the leading groups of the power systems coupled with religions, ideologies and convictions (also democratic states), inwardly (the members belonging to the system) as well as outwardly (third parties), bend and prevent the further development, open-mindedness, creativity and evolution for the maintenance of power. Those who do not belong to the closest core of the power systems are misguided or intimidated, frightened and their personality development is disturbed by information filters. Those who, against all odds, bring forth new ideas that unite people, create new values and ideals through their creativity, are portrayed as liars or put on trial as cheats and lawbreakers, isolated from their families and society. In the near future, the educational gap between cultures will not change elementarily, because even in the Western world, the benefits of decoding art through museums and the media, as well as the introduction of decoding art as a compulsory subject in schools, the protection of creative people through constitutions and brain manipulation through wildly proliferating negative media information by circles clinging to outdated instruments of leadership, have not yet been recognized or stopped.

Exactly in this point, in the almost equal starting position of the western world, the Orient and the Third World regarding the increase of creativity by an improved neuronal networking, lies the possibility that with a global introduction of a formula for creativity through the media with new programs and contents (since it would have to be an optically pictorial - independent of reading, writing and previous education - mediation system) all people could accomplish the same step simultaneously. The extreme excesses, discrepancies and misunderstandings between cultures, religions, ideologies and peoples would be reduced to a considerable extent if such a formula of creativity - which should more correctly be called the formula of life or the formula of peace - were introduced. It would represent a great opportunity to raise the level of creativity and intelligence worldwide and to reduce terrorism and the danger of war.

Creativity and brain blockades to this day
In Europe, we have experienced throughout history that religion coupled with power systems prevented the population from accessing knowledge (reading and writing). This condition was broken only in the 15th century by Johannes Gutenberg and his invention of printing, which led to the multiplication and distribution of books and thus of knowledge in the world at that time. Statistics show that the privileged people of Europe had about 900,000 books at that time. A century later, thanks to Gutenberg, there were already nine million. Gutenberg gave a considerable boost to the breaking of the elitist blockade.

The dominance of the knowledge administration monopoly continued for a long time, but in the individual territorial states of Germany, the former privilege of being able to read and write became a duty only since the end of the 18th century due to the efforts of the Enlightenment thinkers. Compulsory education was introduced in the German-speaking area in Prussia in 1794. But not only here, but in most European countries the literacy of the population began at this time. The aim was also to fight the poverty, ignorance and lethargy of the people and thus to contribute activity and production to the preservation and improvement of the state system. Slowly, the living conditions of the population began to improve, the average life expectancy increased and the infant mortality rate steadily decreased until today. For 200 years now, literacy training, education and learning have contributed to an explosive spread of knowledge and broken the knowledge monopolies described above.

Today, through all media, a huge flood of information penetrates our lives every day, making it very difficult for us to distinguish the important from the unimportant. For some highly sensitive people, this leads to abstinence from media information or, if offered or selected incorrectly, to depression, aggression or suicide and, in extreme fatalism, under guidance, to a symbiosis of suicide and aggression. In these disease-promoting or disease-triggering processes, the brain is temporarily or permanently paralyzed in large areas by mental or emotional viruses. Negative sources of information also include, in graded effect, horror movies and games or corresponding print products, as well as negatively exaggerated radio, print and TV news and reports that evoke fears in the consciousness of the recipient. It does not correspond to the evolutionary, on information aligned, genprogammierten sense organs of humans as well as the neuronal cross-linking of its brain that in its life radius of approximately maximally 100 km, information of negative kind and the reality distorting information into the consciousness of the viewer, as mental viruses unprepared can be implied and here the neuronal cross-linking in such a way reduce and in such a way manipulate that they lead to a negative world realization, so that these humans want to bring about their isolation from this negative world, also graded. The direct information reception of the sense organs developed from the evolution is limited to a radius of approx. 100 m of the observer.
Beyond 400 m, even with the best eyes, we can no longer recognize details. Who has ever seen in his life in this radius mangled people? The gene programming is aligned by the principle of the preservation of the species in such a way that all negative and life-threatening information in the visual field radius the possibilities of the direct sense perception the priority is granted, in order to be able to seize immediate protective measures for itself and for the own kind.

Some media companies and politicians (Hitler's way to power is an object lesson for the use and combination of mental viruses and reprogramming of neuronal networks) take advantage of this species-preserving, evolutionary protective instinct as an intelligence and propaganda media trap. Also at the expense of a negatively developing world, they increase their profits and power by encouraging or even orchestrating crime, extremist and terrorist actions, but at the same time democratically demanding drastic measures and greater power and restriction of constitutionally guaranteed basic human rights in the fight against crime, terror and human rights violation.

In order to enforce their political demand, global negative information is also transported multimedia into the face and consciousness field - in the 100m radius - of the recipients and thereby a world distorted by fear is installed in its consciousness and neural network, as reality, which can reduce its intelligence - as studies show - up to 30% by mutations at the synapses. This negatively overdrawn world does not correspond on the one hand, to the external, from the evolution developed visual field reality, on the other hand by the reduction of the intelligence and creativity the judgement ability, is narrowed at the brain injured. In addition, as confirmed by numerous researches, there are other physical and psychological diseases caused by anxiety, depression and reduction of personality. For this reason, the insidious perpetrators of brain injury remain hidden from the sick person even through his reduction of intelligence. The annual increase in the number of cases of mental illness, which the World Health Organization WHO
published figures on depression sufferers and suicides speak their own language and have been obtained from the WHO. In Germany alone, there are 340,000 depression sufferers and over 11,000 suicides a year, not including the high number of unreported cases that experts assume. These correlations and effects are supported by extensive research and by the "Depression 2000" study published by the German Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry in Munich.

published by the German Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry in Munich: "Empirically proven vulnerability and risk factors for depressive illnesses, in addition to gender (women are more likely to fall ill), are in particular:
Family genetic factors: the probability of experiencing depression in the course of life is significantly increased in first-degree relatives of depressive sufferers; different frequencies of illness in monozygotic and dizygotic twins have been demonstrated.
Neurobiological alterations: Disturbances in signal transmission within and between neurons, as well as endocrinological influences (e.g., cortisol, melatonin) and disturbances in sleep-wake regulation. Certain dysfunctional cognitive styles, antecedent anxiety disorders, and dependence on psychotropics, substances-acute and chronic psychosocial (stress) factors, such as separation, unemployment, life crises, experiences of loss, and loneliness, (people living alone or separated have a significantly increased risk of disease), and certain chronic physical diseases (e.g., chronic pain syndromes)."

The triggering factors of the disease depend on the meanings the sick person gives to the negative cognitions.

However, this cannot hide the fact that the humus and breeding ground for these mental viruses is prepared by the propaganda media (willing media companies that are at the service of the power structures, generating fear, limiting intelligence and democracy). Moreover, all the causal and risk factors listed by the Max Planck Institute can be traced directly or indirectly - confirmed by further studies - to today's prevailing media practice, as the causal agent. In addition, etiological depression research assumes a multicausal set of conditions in which genetic, neurobiological, psychological, social and behavioral factors play an equal role. If one puts the numerous international, empirically secured research results from the above mentioned fields and the history of art, evolutionary research as well as the evolutionary theory of cognitive systems on top of each other in a grid, one gets a clearly confirming picture of the - by the propaganda media - implicated mental viruses, which can mutate continuously by new negative information and thus show different symptoms in the clinical picture.

The maxim of profit increase and power expansion by politics and propaganda media does not stop also at brain injury of a people. The result is the imprisonment and murder of all possible opponents of the regime, wars and the attempt to exterminate entire ethnic groups and peoples (see
This phenomenon is exemplified by the Nazi regime, the
Stalin era or the war against Saddam Hussein, and by the conscious or unconscious assistance of media companies that were brought into line by those in power. Through the scientific work of historians, this phenomenon is presented in a comprehensible way.

Today, those who are obsessed with power do not forget that a people who once survived this mental
epidemic and has recognized the connections, is resistant to a renewed spread of this disease.
In order to prevent this, research studies are ignored, falsified and propagated and used contrary to their results for the pursuit of political goals - with the opposite direction of effect. (Numerous examples can be found in the media in the areas of drugs, disasters, crime, the neo-Nazi movement, xenophobia, education, art and artists, medicine, etc.). The process of obstructing the free development of personality through physical injury to the brain can, as studies show, lead to a reduction of an average intelligence quotient (IQ) from 100 to 110 to values below 80. One thinks only of the well-known test fears, which can block as future fear, partial areas of the neuronal cross-linking temporarily.

The person manipulated by the propaganda media is, as the development of National Socialism in Germany has shown, incapable of making well-considered, political decisions as a voter because of his sealed-off creativity and intelligence resources (see also Gleichschaltung der Medien, Bücherverbrennung, Entartete Kunst, Propagandafilme). The brain of the injured can be manipulated by the power-obsessed in this state in such a way that simple, emotionally charged new information instinctively reshapes the neural network of the reduced consciousness (by eliminating or restricting the critical, balancing and creative consciousness network). Transferred to the education of the democratic countries of the western world, according to scientific investigations (see Pisa study) concerning the relevant national groups in the comparison the adolescents are on the average no more capable of school top performances (by IQ reduction). The same results are then later reflected in the annual economic data of the country, if the media consumption of negative information is not curbed, but further promoted. To the intellectually sealed off media recipient remains open beside a possible aggression or depression development only the way to the voluntary compulsory - work (which gives the mental viruses again new strength) or the possibility to take over the general society direction wanted by the rulers uncritically or motivated. At the beginning of the 3rd millennium it is time to include in the constitutions that in the population by compulsory schooling a knowledge system, a creative consciousness grid is trained and established, which thus strengthens the neuronal networking and is especially anchored in it. This would make it possible for humans to selectively and unconsciously pre-filter the flood of evolutionarily important as well as unimportant information that is coming upon them and thus to prevent the limitation of intelligence and creativity and at the same time to achieve the opposite, namely to automatically promote creativity and intelligence throughout life. Katja Thimm says in the magazine "Der Spiegel":


"Every learning process changes the brain" [2].

Gerhard Roth, neuroscientist at the University of Bremen and rector of the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg in Delmenhorst confirms in the same report:
"Every learning process is accompanied by a change of the brain".

Visible creativity is species-preserving, it shapes the neural network. Professor of Mathematics and Didactics Gerhard Preiß of the University of Freiburg:

"Although ethics and the law prohibit invasive brain experiments on
humans. But researchers know from animal experiments that complex brains learn in a similar way.
Comparable processes take place in their brains as they abstract, generalize and break down their environment into categories, such as small and large, loud and quiet. The basic neural mechanisms are universal from sea snails
to humans."

Learning means anchoring information in the brain in such a way that it can be retrieved at any time. About a possible tool for creativity, intelligence and humanity development, artist Prof. Joseph Beuys said:

"In my opinion, art is the only evolutionary force. That is, only out of the creativity of man can conditions change."

Since 1988, with the art formula, a mental tool is available to change the circumstances. It enables a generally valid access to creativity and beyond theory a graphic-optical way to promote the neuronal creativity network in the brain, which as a creative consciousness grid makes creativity perceptible and pre-filters and stores it as cognition. About the processes in the brain Gerhard Preiß expresses himself as follows:

"The brain must protect itself from learning too much. Because
second by second, an immeasurable number of impressions and perceptions compete for its attention. If they were all stored, the brain would be paralyzed within a very short time by a flood of meaningless data garbage.
by a flood of meaningless data garbage. That's why it has to cope with two difficult tasks in particular: Distinguishing important from unimportant
from the unimportant and to form categories.
First, the brain distills out of all the thoughts and ideas, sensory stimuli, sensations and
experiences, the brain distills the tiny part that it considers important enough to be stored and remembered in the brain.
and remembered. This extract then has to be sorted. For only for those who are able to recognize the category "apple" in Boskop, Cox Orange and Granny Smith does the world make sense. The enormous work of filtering and sorting is performed by the network of around 100 billion nerve cells in the head, which in turn are linked together at a total of around 100 trillion contact points (synapses). Every impression, every stimulus, every circumstance to which a person is exposed alters this finely spun network by strengthening certain neuron connections and weakening others."

A formula for deciphering art not only establishes a strengthened creation network in the brain, but also pre-filters the information for the consciousness, so that the brain is relieved and the findings are prepared (as an apple), made recognizable as creativity, presented. Visible creativity is species-preserving, it shapes the neural network. The synopses and their interconnections developed in childhood up to puberty by given gene programming, new information and species-preserving cognitions are newly formed in adulthood, predominantly by species-preserving cognitions pre-filtered by consciousness. The formula enables imagination and future formation to be fostered by a rapidly expanding neural network for creative performance. An evolving creativity center and/or network in the brain can be foreseen today. Since our primary sense perception is vision, the recognition of creativity or art, the selective perception of visual creative changes, creative vision is the most important and effective process of our concrete mental evolution. The process of creativity cognition is created and/or promoted by the species-preserving programming of the genes to the evolution engine of the consciousness and by the formula. Of course, the distance between the people who have comprehended this cognition and established it in their neuronal network increases with higher speed and cognition density, because they filter out exactly this information from bread and games, which is important for their synapses and network evolution, by recognizing changes in today's media variety. For German researcher and anthropologist Friedemann Schrenk, by exploring this scientific gap, human biocultural evolution could be rapidly accelerated. The basic principle - the code we are looking for - emerges clearly, the same for all life forms, as a species-preserving gene program that filters the information for species preservation and stores it in the neuronal network. The correlations and the reverse process of mental and physical decay have been described in advance and are supported by numerous empirically validated studies:

(a) species-preserving priority to positive information.
b) Drug addiction to negative information through unnatural alteration of the neural network
c) gene-programmed adaptation of the personality to the negative outside world
d) Change of the outside world by own deeds, to the agreement with his inner cognitions of his neuronal net, up to rampage, racial hatred, anti-Semitism, socialism, communism, capitalism, exploitative colonial or global capitalism, religious fanaticism, terrorism, war or -and this is frequently encountered- to quite normal madness. Often these phenomena occur in mixed forms, which may be regional, national, or characterized by group consciousness, for example.

In this regard, the neurobiologist and researcher Alberto Ferrús from Madrid is concerned with the search for the next important step in neurobiology:

"We would like to find some kind of neural code to understand, for example, how perception is encoded in
our brain is encoded. Or how we retain a received piece of information in memory: Code: How
does the brain of a fly or a human being proceed? According to what basic principle?
The details, of course, will be different for each organism.
But maybe, maybe there is such a basic principle, such a code of universal value.
Once discovered, we would have made an enormous leap forward.

It would take us as far forward as Mendel's laws once took genetics."

[1] The media consumer becomes a drug addict through his gene-programmed species-preserving program with all the consequences and health damage accompanying drug consumption, since connections for negative information have been created in his neuronal network. Today we know from research on drugs that once the neural connections are created, the addiction is created by memory. Man gets, by the mental virus producing propaganda media, into a fourfold genetic trap.
