COPPER

THE PRACTICAL ANTIMICROBIAL AGENT

Nature provides for all that we humans need. That is obvious for many, but anathema for those who believe that the objective of life is to dominate. Invariably the crux of the matter is a question of greed for profit, as opposed to satisfying an immediate and essential need. Fortunately, copper has never been considered by humans as sharing value similar to, for example, gold or silver, despite its remarkable properties. The simple fact of extracting a mineral from the soil and processing it so that it serves humanity is a feat of ingenuity, but when that method proves to be relatively benign to the earth and the environment, it might be considered that human enterprise is not only reasonably balanced with regard to what we find and could compare with other methods, but it is also harmonious. The extraction and pollution caused by oil and its by-products, or the feeling of trees to grow other crops are examples of greed-motivated exploitation of the earth – our home.

The extraction and processing of copper is an ancient human practice. Historically recognized as a key event in the Bronze age before becoming of artistic and decorative use in the later Iron age. At no stage in recent history, to my knowledge, are the healthcare uses of copper given much, if any, attention. Yet we know that the ancients used bronze, because of its high copper content, as vessels to contain water (photo below of a 2nd century BCE container from Adoration and Glory, Bunker & Latchford, p.31, 2004). In more recent times, water was conveyed in copper pipes.

As John Stewart so ably explains on his website, http://biophysica.com/content/science-behind-our-technology/biophysical-properties-of-metals/copper/, copper – especially in colloidal form offers a host of benefits. The colloidals I make use his apparatus.

Further research, especially relevant to sanitisation and copper’s ability to ‘eat’ viri and bacteria can be found on https://www.southampton.ac.uk/publicpolicy/news/2020/12/bill-keevil-the-benefits-of-anti-microbial-copper.page, and https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/search/research-news/9381/, and https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21193661/#:~:text=Metallic%20copper%20as%20an%20antimicrobial%20surface%20Bacteria%2C%20yeasts%2C,potential%20use%20of%20copper%20as%20an%20antiba%20%E2%80%A6

The caption in the book is “Ceremonial Bronze Urn or Bell”. Bless their hearts, they fail to see the spirals incised. Water has an intelligence and reacts to geometric form. In this case, if water is stored in the vessel, a movement will be generated due to the stimulus of the spirals, so dynamizing the water and making it ‘alive’.
