What the H--- is Factor X??? Post your guesses.

    Dr. K has mentioned Wim Hof a lot. In one of the videos posted, Wim stayed under ice-cold water for 6 minutes. Dr. K also alluded that references to polar bears & penguins are on track. Perhaps something happens to rewire the brain when the breath is held for a long duration in cold water?

    Another tangent - Dr. K did some epic biohack on January 9 and has been doing immense amounts of CT since then, presumably to reverse it. Did he apply Factor X to his body - speeded up the evolution of something - and then needed to use 5-hour CT sessions to reverse it?

    He was a leader as is Dr. Kruse...

    Lyndra interesting thought...luckily this will be answered at TedX, hopfully he's not full of some of those colorful chicken feathers ;)

    Thanks MJ...

    we're all tetering on our own event horizon...

    REALLY??? That is so cool, that you even know that!!! I'd like to say that my highly developed intuition led me to that quote just for you ;), but it was Google LoL

    All of this speculating on Factor X leads me back to meditation. Research indicates that people who meditate have a great deal of activity in their frontal cortex. Not so in non-meditators. Diving deep into the silence every day eventually gives you an awareness of unity with all. Instead of attempting to control our environment, we become our environment. When that happens, intuition takes control and you simply ride the wave.

    I'm not proselytizing new age dogma here. I experience this on a daily basis. After 12 years of a daily practice, I know this to be true.

    Here's where modern minds fail. Do they really go through the process of understanding why a child might have a dive reflex, then just get stuck, thinking evolution could not possibly want an adult to have the same thing?

    If it's mostly children having it today, I assume it's for the same reason that only the children in my house had resistance to sunburn poison ivy, & cold (or did, until this last year or two, when I joined them!!) - by the time we're adults, we've O6'd it out of our bodies with our crazy grain-heavy diets

    Again to use my possibly made-up word: indisputably. (Hey, spell check likes it; it must be a real word.) I miss my silence; I used to work it in to every day. I still try to keep the tv & radio off whenever possible, but the computer destroys my interior silence (and the brain craziness from whatever hormones are haywire keeps me thinkthinkthinking all day or singing songs constantly in my head). I still try to meditate (lectio divina my favorite), but don't get it like i used to.

    Silence is key to interior growth. It helps intuition, but isn't a guarantee, ime.

    We brought up the dive reflex awhile ago, shot down...

    But Dr. Kruse sees something in it, is it more developed? need to dig deeper...maybe the hypoxia...

    I think at the end of the day, all ultradian, circadian and seasonal cycles will be important. The sun gives off UV radiation (as do our bodies when heated up), and I keep flashing back to the bomb in that You Tube video. The destruction, and then at the end, new growth.... a clean slate, starting all over again.

    As far as Michelangelo's David, what I thought when I looked at it when I visited Rome, was how amazing that Michelangelo could "see" David in a block of rock. He had to chip away at it, but with a vision in mind, in order to reveal the beauty that was always there waiting to be uncovered. Perhaps we are like sculptors and our bodies are like blocks just waiting for us to chip away to reveal the inner beauty that has always been there. Intention and vision held in our mind for such purpose.

    Something to ponder on the quest for the elusive factor X: On Jan 9th, Dr K says he completed a 90 day bio hack. What was he doing last October? Was that when he went on the cruise?

    David thanks for helping to point me to this, and Lauren this is an excellent find! The whole thing was interesting, need to think on it...

    Yup. My grandmother had us do an exercise in geneaology one summer. The result was drawing the familial line on my dads side back to John Adams. Whats funny when you read Mccollough's book he talks about Adams mannerisms. I was like omg he's describing my uncle's mannerisms to a T. What was even more interesting was hoe Paul Giamatti brought those mannerism to life in the HBO miniseries. I never realized until recently hoe things like mannerisms, expressions & how er talk are influenced by epigenetics. My dd has mannerism & expressions of my Grandmother (she died in1999 & dd was born 9ys later!). She also has mannerisms & expressions of my youngest cousin whom dd has never met epigenetics are pretty freaking powerful

    I know uv and heavy metals cause dna folding. A list of other things, too. Heat reactive proteins.....ug... why am I so invested? Where is that site?

    How about simply HYPOTHERMIA-- the logical natural extension of CT. Dr K would be very familiar with using this in the medical setting to rest the brain/vital organs when blood supply was interrupted. He stated at one point that hypoxia was "warm". Hypoxia is well tolerated in a hypothermic state as metabolic demands are lessened. In his hypoxia levee, he concludes that hypoxia is the natural, healthy signal for self repair -- autophagy. There is also something about mitochondrial adaption. Somewhere, I remember reading something along the lines of "he couldn't believe that there was life at a pa O2 of 35". I think that he is using significant hypothermia to lessen metabolic demands/induce hypoxia/turn on body repair mechanisms. I am not sure if this is the 3rd experiment or has something to do with Factor X. I still contend that the mammalian dive reflex may be a part of this... just my 2 cents..
