I just watched the short video
that Eric Merola shot at the last Burzyński Clinic Christmas party. Not a particularly interesting video on the whole. More of a promotional piece showing Transformers actor Josh Duhmel and his thoughts on Burzyński.
While Josh was talking at the front of the room, addressing what appears to be about 200 people, I noticed something a little unusual. Well, I say unusual, I mean really bizarre.
On the white board, to the right of shot, appears to be a ‘golden ratio’ drawing and then underneath a list with lines from the words going to something out of shot. The list, from top to bottom is:
—6—3rd eye forehead.
An odd list, but come back to that. My interest was most certainly spiked! But I couldn’t get a good close up of the whole board. There’s a shot of Josh being interviewed with the whole board in the background, but it’s just too far away. DAMN!
Then I remembered, the photos! I refer to the photos taken at the party, which were published on a Huston forum site called Forum Polonia Houston.
Finally! I found enough snippets to knock it all together into one picture.
Are you proud of me? Well, you bloody well should be! This is the best I could do by using the clearest, best defined sections from the photos and syncing it together. Now you’ve seen my master piece, Pareidolia should help you with this more distant, but more complete image.
What are we looking at here then?
To the top left appears to be a representation of the compound methane (CH•4). Then to the right of the board is a not uncommon visual representation of the golden ratio, followed underneath with a sticklike person and words to the side, that I listed above.
This raises ALOT more questions than my original curiosity thought it would lead me to. I’m genuinely perplexed.
This is “New age” thinking. The idea that the golden ratio relates directly to the human body has been thoroughly disproven. Brian Dunning did a good job with this over on Skeptoid and it’s from him I quote;
“Volumes of nonsense have been written claiming that all sorts of arbitrary body measurements betray the golden ratio. The width of the shoulders compared to the height of the head; the height of the navel relative to the height of the whole body; the length of the forearm compared to the distance from the head to the fingertips; and so on, and so on, and so on. Obviously these measurements are different on everyone; there is probably not a single living human for whom these many claims are true.”
But we’ll choose to ignore the lack of relationship between the golden ratio and human body for a minute and have a look at that list and the health implications.
The list relates to the a western interpretation of the 7 chakra points. This is an interpretation of a Hindu belief. These are supposed points on the body where, “energy channels” are focused. I say “a” western interpretation, because as far as I could see, there are hundreds of different points, used by different people. Believers say:
“Blocked energy in our 7 Chakras can often lead to illness so it’s important to understand what each Chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.
If you can face it, this 1990’s design website it as good (bad) as any other website and lists plenty of ways to “think yourself better”.
Utter nonsense, of course, with every link in the chain is broken. The golden ratio doesn’t relate to the human body, the human body doesn’t relate to chakras and the chakras don’t relate to actual physical health.
But there it is, on the white board of a cancer clinic, in Texas.
So, here’s the question. Why? What the hell is this doing there? This is supposed to be a reputable medical facility with high and exacting medical standards. Right?
Oh wait! It’s the Burzyński Clinic. Where the rules of science and understanding are replaced with magical and wishful thinking. I mean, why not have that on the wall? Who knows what this was part of and I think is raises some legitimate questions about the practices they conduct.
Were they and are they teaching people about the chakras and how this can help them with their cancer?
I know you have to be medically misguided to be a doctor there, but is there no limit‽
As for the methane, you tell me! I’ve read up at much as I can and unless I’ve missed something, I have no idea that this could be a reference to. Feel free to speculate in the comments section, pretty sure I will be.
I do hope that cancer patients at the clinic aren’t being taught about this. They really do have enough to deal with.
