CHAPTER 1

Adapted Hyperactive State (AHS) Theory


Adapted Hyperactive State (AHS)

AHS is an adapted accelerated or hyperactive condition, which happens when both mind and body adapt or memorize an accelerated or hyperactive condition, which results in a permanent chronic or nervous state of the mind and body. The lifestyle changes and things look different when an individual is moving at a faster pace; values are impacted, material gratification is necessary, senses are exaggerated, sexual gratification is required, and satisfaction is constantly needed to cope with stress. Desires increase, as does the appetite for food. The need for food is exaggerated and triggered more often.

Hunger can strike as often as every fifteen minutes after having a full meal and can reoccur throughout the day. Food is continuously ingested to satisfy hunger, which causes mental or stomach pain. This uncontrollable hyperactive state of the mind is constantly active or turned on, day and night. While an individual is sleeping or trying to relax, the body is still processing enormous amounts of food, thus producing excessive energy and sweat to cool it down.


Adapted Hyperactivity or Staying On

Repetitive instances of nervous activity can cause the nervous triggers to stay on permanently. This nervous condition causes the body's organs to mutate or adapt to support this new energy demand. This means that the increased energy requirements stay on, while an individual is relaxing, working, sleeping, reading, and eating. This permanent condition is not easily apparent or visible. It becomes the new way of life.


Repetition

Repetitive nervous activity can cause the nervous trigger to stay on permanently. This means that the nervous system does not go back to the relaxed state; therefore, the nervous system is permanently active. The body organs can adapt and mutate to support the accelerated condition. This change can occur over a short time—in as little as six months—when the body is exposed to this repetitive use of the nervous trigger.


Why Does It Appear Natural?

AHS is an adapted hyperactive condition that appears natural or normal to the human body, especially if an individual has had this condition for a long time and if he or she has learned to live with it. A condition is considered natural only if the change is one that everyone experiences. For example, baldness appears natural if the majority of men are shown to experience the condition.


AHS Changes Based on Age—Main Causes

AHS can happen to anyone regardless of age. Age is not a factor here; both young and old are vulnerable to the same side effects. Men from twenty-one through sixty-five years of age are the most vulnerable to adapting to AHS. The critical age for a man is forty; this is when he starts to slow down and exercises less. Exercise can play a positive role in reversing AHS if performed along with meditation techniques.

CHAPTER 2

The Nervous System Theory


Explaining the Nervous System

The nervous system is an uncontrollable mechanism that turns on and off during panic or in response to a stressful situation. There are two mental states: one is the normal or relaxed state, and the other is the hyperactive or nervous state. In the relaxed state, the body's system is operating at a slower and more controlled nervous frequency, where most of the actions happen after they are commanded by the mind. In the hyperactive or nervous state, the body's system is operating at a higher nervous frequency with little or no mind control. Actions are driven by the nervous system, and the mind control follows to correct the action taken or the situation. In other words, the nervous system automatically controls actions, speed, and body movements based on learned commands.


Nervous Trigger

The nervous system can be unconsciously turned on by external influences. For example, if an individual is exposed to a panic-inducing situation, the brain triggers the nervous system and releases an extreme rush of adrenaline so that the person is able to automatically and quickly react to protect or defend him- or herself from danger. The brain's nervous trigger can automatically turn itself on during routine, everyday situations, such as trying to meet deadlines, driving, receiving disagreeable news, experiencing emotions, and working in a fast-paced environment.

The brain's two operating frequencies can coexist side by side; one is the slow, normal, everyday relaxed and controlled frequency, and the other is the fast, nervous, and uncontrollable frequency, which turns on during a panic-inducing or emergency situation. People can learn to control both frequencies and be able to turn the nervous frequency on and off at will when needed. People can learn to identify the relaxed and nervous frequency states and know when they are functioning at one or the other. This learned control allows people to benefit from the nervous energy to perform demanding tasks and at the same time benefit from the ability to be in the relaxed condition, which allows the body to truly relax and recharge. I do not recommend turning on the nervous system for any longer than two weeks, since at this time, the body organs start to permanently adapt to the new state.

The brain's nervous trigger can easily be turned on, but it can be very difficult to turn off, depending on the person's state of mind and how long it has stayed on. Turning it off can take hours, days, weeks, or months, or it may stay on permanently, depending on how long it has stayed on.

The nervous system trigger is directly related to the unique level of sensitivity of the individual, which directly affects how his or her body responds to external motivators, such as infections, temperatures, bacteria, allergies, and pain.

The greater the nervous sensitivity, the greater the effect it has on the body. A relaxed individual exposed to a hot object has less of a reaction to pain than a nervous individual.

Keeping a nervous system turned on weakens the immune system, leaving the individual vulnerable to bacteria or germs when compared to a healthy, relaxed individual.


Unstoppable Nervous System

A nervous mental condition can be learned; unfortunately, it can also harm the body. A nervous condition, once learned, is difficult to reverse since it affects or changes many of the body systems linked to and operated by the brain. Once the nervous trigger has been on for a long time, it tends to stay on. The longer it has stayed on, the longer it takes to reverse this condition.

The accelerated condition increases the mind-control frequency and stores new memories of all new learned body functions and behaviors at this higher operating frequency. Stored memories of body functions, such as walking, running, playing sports, talking, sleeping, thinking, and remembering are saved at this higher frequency. It takes more effort to reverse all these learned abilities back to the normal slower frequency than to adapt to the higher AHS frequency. The older the individual, the longer it takes to reverse the process, but it can be done; success depends on the individual's ability to learn and adapt.

This reversal process must be performed gradually in order to allow time for the mind and body to establish or reestablish communications at a slower frequency. This is the basis for the reversal theory.


Why Does the Nervous System Turn On?

The nervous system turns on in order to keep up with fast-paced activities, such as in media or games or a high-stress working environment. If the nervous system does not turn on, the mind cannot keep up with most of the scenes of fast-moving media, play fast games, or keep up with the pace of a higher-stress work environment and is unable to keep up with fast-moving everyday activities.

The mind learns by doing; therefore, the nervous sensitivity can be reversed, controlled, or conditioned to be less responsive. The mind can learn to be less sensitive to touch, smell, vision, taste, and hearing. It can even condition the body to move slowly or be less sensitive to touch or even learn to walk on hot surfaces.


Analog versus Digital

Analog versus Digital Signals

Comparing AHS versus non-AHS is like comparing digital movement (AHS) to analog movement (non-AHS). Move like an analog system rather than like a digital system in order to learn to control the nervous system. An analog signal moves slowly and gradually from low to high, while digital signals are either on or off instantly. A digital signal changes suddenly from a zero-gain signal to a 100 percent gain signal instantly; this is referred to as a step chart.


Muscle Frequency Based on Mass

Eye Movement

The eye is the primary conduit through which external motivating frequencies make their way into an individual's nervous system. Adaptation to AHS results in a condition that causes excessive and uncontrollable or rapid eye movements and blinking of the eyelids, which is required to mitigate the burning sensation from overly sensitive eyes.


Muscle Movement

The smaller the muscle, the less mass it has and the quicker it can keep up with the AHS frequency. Bigger muscle groups cannot move to a high frequency. Therefore, learning to control movements of the smaller muscle groups is important in controlling AHS. Learning to control smaller muscle groups so that they move only when commanded is one way to monitor and control AHS.


Changes to the Nervous System

AHS changes the nervous system. The nervous system becomes hypersensitive; with less mental control, more gratification and pleasures are needed more frequently to relieve stress; the body becomes more sensitive to pain and to external factors, such as airborne elements or heat.


AHS Changes Based on Size and Body Constitution

The smaller the body size, the more vulnerable the body is to adapting to AHS. This is because the lower the muscle mass, the less effort is needed to move muscles to a higher AHS frequency. A smaller individual can move faster than a larger individual. AHS has to do with the ability of the body's smaller muscle groups to reach the frequency of the body's nervous energy for a period long enough for the body to adapt. Therefore, the smaller muscle groups, such as the eye muscles and muscles of the eyelids and fingers are prone to acquiring and adapting AHS from higher external frequencies. Individuals who are larger in size will be more resistant to acquiring AHS.


Power of the Human Machine

The human machine can learn by doing; it can adapt, get stronger, and become tireless at will. The body can be taught to slow down or control the hyperactive nervous state and to regain the long-lost happiness, friendship, and values and to help rediscover a new and a renewed individual.

CHAPTER 3

Unconscious Learned Behavior Theory


Unconscious Learned Behavior

The mind learns by doing even if the individual is not aware of this unconscious process. The individual is aware of what he is doing but he is not aware that he has an unconscious process. The mind can learn to dislike, to socialize, to be shy, or to be aggressive; it can learn hyperactivity, a game, a desire, or stress. It can learn to be overweight and can learn to be outgoing. The mind can learn these conditions unconsciously if exposed to them long enough.

Changes in behavior can be learned in as little as six months to a year if one is exposed to the conditions daily or in less time if one is exposed to them continuously or twenty-four hours a day. Unfortunately, some of these learned conditions can cause harm to the mind and body or cause the body to prematurely mutate.


Permanent Changes

Behavior can be learned in as little as six months to a year. The body adapts to or memorizes a particular nervous state of mind when exposed to an accelerated condition for a long period of time. The metabolism changes and adapts to support the new mental condition and stays permanently in that state.

The new nervous state of mind is gratifying until the side effects start to surface or reveal themselves. Some individuals can cope better than others with this change in mental state, depending on their body composition, when in their lives this change occurred, and whether the change occurred gradually or quickly, or it may depend on other factors, such as the extent of exposure to an accelerated environment or the person's mental health.


Mutation

AHS can lead to premature body mutation in as little as six months to a year. A human body can adapt and mutate faster than ever imagined. It no longer takes millions of years for the body to mutate; this principle violates the laws of evolution.


Initial Consequences of AHS

Adaptation to AHS leads to side effects. The initial side effects can be seen in an increase in appetite, impatience, lack of sleep, circles around the eyes, some hair loss, dandruff, itchiness of the scalp, weight gain, rapid eye movement, excessive blinking, lack of concentration, uncontrollable urge, nervous energy, continuously upset stomach, clumsiness or bumping into things, speech errors, a fast laugh, and hyperactivity.


What Happens When the Nervous System Turns On?

The relevant part of the nervous system is technically referred to as the autonomic system. It is located at the center of the brain or on the upper part of the spinal cord. When turned on, it starts to generate excessive internal heat. This heat is generally released through the upper part of the brain and in turn makes the brain hot. This excessive heat can be seen since it leads to excessive perspiration at the scalp. This nervous activity can unconsciously turn on when the brain or the mind loses control of the nervous system.

CHAPTER 4

Baldness Theory


What Causes Baldness/Hair Loss?

AHS causes baldness. The higher inner processing temperature of the brain, which is caused by the onset of AHS, creates the conditions for baldness. This higher nervous or internal processing frequency increases the temperature of the brain, which damages and dries the hair follicles by overheating them and depriving them of nutrients and their natural healing environment. This harsh environment damages or kills hair follicles and causes accelerated hair loss or damage.

This harsh environment can sometimes be felt as itchiness of the scalp or be visually evident in excessive sweating on the upper part of the head or in dandruff. Itchiness means that the high temperature of the brain is overheating, killing, and expelling the hair follicles. In other words, since the brain is always accelerated, it produces higher internal heat; therefore, the body no longer needs the hair for cooling. This accelerated condition causes the body to kill hair follicles and expel the hair.

Although stress can be compared to AHS it is not the same. Stress is a temporary state that comes and goes where AHS modifies the body. The meaning of the word stress has not been fully defined.


Brain-Head Hot Spots

Hair Loss

Hair loss generally starts at the crown of the head and works its way outward in a circle toward the complete upper part of the head. Once the adapted AHS process starts or stays on permanently, it generally leads to complete hair loss on the upper part of the head.


Brain Baldness Patterns

There are several baldness patterns. Baldness patterns are related to how quickly individuals adapt to AHS, how long they have AHS, their intellect, their current age, and the age when they started to adapt to AHS. For example, AHS has a greater effect on individuals with greater intellect than on others. The intellect or mental activity is determined by their environmental complexity, work demands, pace, or the type of job they are exposed to.


Complete Hair Loss from the Upper Part of the Head

This is caused when an individual has completely adapted to AHS. The body is continuously at AHS; there is no mind control or temporary reversal to the relaxed state. The brain is at a continuous nervous state, and the nerves are operating at a higher frequency and produce a higher temperature, which causes the hair follicles to dry up quickly, resulting in complete hair loss on the upper part of the head.


Hair Loss from the Frontal/Upper Part of the Head

This happens when an individual has an active and higher intellect. This is not AHS. The individual has total mind control, and the brain is not operating at a continuous nervous state. Only the hair follicles on the front of the head are affected by the controlled and heavy used of the higher processing frequency.


Hair Loss Starts at the Crown

Hair loss starts at the back upper part or crown of the head during the initial stages of adapting to AHS. The brain's nervous processing frequency begins to affect or heat up the hair follicles located around the crown area of the head. The state of mind control flips back and forth from a nervous state to a relaxed state. There are times when there is mind control, and there are times when there is no mind control over the nervous state.
