The Swiss physician and chemist Paracelsus said,

“All things are poison and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing not a poison.”

The mainstream media, in the dose it is presented and available to us, is literally a deadly poison to consciousness—and the psyche.

If you're choosing to expose yourself to the mainstream media, it's very important that you consume only a therapeutic and medicinal amount.

Unless you know how to transmute the toxicity of the mainstream media, my suggestion is to titrate your dose so that it's not poisonous in effect.

What constitutes a poisonous dose is subjective...

For one, it may be listening to the radio on the 15-minute drive to work.

For another it may be listening to the evening news during dinner, with family.

For some it may be reading three newspapers on the 2-hour train commute to work.

For others it may be watching a 15-minute youtube compilation video once a week.

For another a mega dose is seeing the cover of TIME magazine while waiting to checkout at the grocery.

What is poison to you may be medicine to another and what is medicine to another may be poison to you.

What supports you might kill another and vice versa.

Is this a medicine (mainstream media) you need or want?

If so, then you must determine the dose that is right for you, otherwise you will be poisoned.

No dose is too small.
No dose is too small.
No dose is too small.

If you need a homeopathic amount, then honor that need and consume only the amount your system can digest, absorb, assimilate, and eliminate—until you can handle more. At which point you get to choose if you need or want to consume more.

And remember, no dose is a dose too.

Fasting from something is its own medicine,
received in relation to thing you are fasting from.

In this way, we use what we’re fasting from, to serve deeper dimensions of need and desire; beyond that which is served by the thing itself.

You must be your own doctor—or get the support of a trusted metaphysician.
