Sammy Jo, I can't believe I'm finally dialoging with someone on this board!
Your link is VERY informative to laypeople - especially the 3D cubic bar chart!
I read your questions but before getting to them, first, I feel some background is in order.
Also, please bear with some delays responding (due to electrosensitivity, plus personal life issues to attend constantly)
Years ago, in 2011, I'd researched then later printed text from THISISMS including your informative dialog with George Goss. Prior to that, for decades, I was in a whirling dervish cycle of researching fibromyalgia, then later, dental-mercury, and electrosensitivity (I was especially impressed by Dr.Robert Becker's quite "ancient" books wherein he cited his studies with stem cells before the term stemCells was even bandied about!)
It was Becker's genious which most
enlightened me re: stem cells, leading me to read the books Stem-Cells Now, Proteus Effect & more.
I was especially burned up by the one discussing the politics behind it all.
I was also ongoingly consumed with personal/family issues, geriatric parents, etc.
Now what I cannot understand is:
Instead of organizing PRO-ACTIVELY with concrete goals which could resolve ALL our issues, most chronically ill people for more than a decade
(on the Net) have favored repetitive litanies of whichever so-holy
therapies/ISTS have helped them. Often the litanies were/are filled with jargon parroted from ONE-SIZE-FITS-MOST Medical & Nutritional TomesThat's the reason it's crucial to SUBLIMINALLY wake everyone up through Audio Visual effects. ENOUGH WITH MONOTONOUS MANTRA'S! Can't the chronically-ill community understand that's not what galvanizes most Americans?
(if you see some of my other posts on ThisIsMs, you'll see why I'm tearing hair out.)
Now re: my bumper sticker - note that it's AS YET - HALF-BAKED.
for example, in Paint.Net - how to paint the StemCells to match the color of the coins?
It requires group creativity (are there creative types in the MS community)?
Like how about sticking the word "Big Pharma" somewhere in the sticker?
How about collaborating on a jingle?
Or recruiting a hot-shot singer?
Perhaps adding this silly rhyme - or do you have something better??
(Pic. of REAL MARIJUANA Vs.
<== mix this Wimpy pile with Gold Coins mixed in
It's not about our red-hot pain
It's all about their hot-shot gain
We need to think hard how to campaign.
I can't go public, but I can offer a few ideas & [limited] creativity.
What could really launch things, is a tear-jerker video.
Imagine a hot singer rendering:
We're in a fire - filled with pain that's unreLEN-N-NTting.....
we're filled with IRE - due to blah blah blah blah blah blah
...then the refrains can be borrowed from the bumper sticker:
...I.E. greed for wealth / drive for power / hot-shot gain / whatever...
If you're asking: Why include freenergy driving-power on a StemCell Sticker?
Answer - you gotta include something that MOST relate to not just us
...that way we may have more chance of getting understood - comprende?
Reachable via PM. Seems I have Higbee's HSII on ThisIsMS. Frustrated by MSers, FMers, Lymers & Prematurely-Aged-By-EMFers who prefer cryptic jargonian Systems Vs. Intuitive empirical experience. Don't simple truths count for anything anymore?
