He is a renowned Professor of medicine who has written hundreds of different research papers covering issues from obesity to bipolar disorder. When I asked his opinion on my first two chapters, he was left somewhat speechless as he said he had never come across any of my research and therefore could not offer an opinion as he had no expertise on which to base one.
He wanted to read the whole manuscript before he would offer his views. When he had read it all, he said that the book made fascinating reading and 3 2 he was now no longer a complete sceptic.
It is not necessary to read them all in sequence: you can dip in and out as you wish. All that I would recommend is that you first read this chapter and the next, on water, as these will hopefully provide you with some incredible new ideas. Then feel free to use those ideas in the chapters on the moon and sun, magnets, bees and birds, technology and plants as, and how, you want.
When you have digested all of the information, feel free to join in the discussions on my website and put your own opinions forward. The piece of the puzzle that seems to have been ignored for so long is this simple fact - that everything vibrates. I know this sounds ridiculously simple, but let me explain why this point is so important and why, when you have read the following chapters on water and the moon, you will wonder why you have been deprived of this knowledge until now.
The idea that vibrations play such an important role took me a long time to work out; it did not come to me straight away.
Matthew Silverstone -Blinded by Science
But once I understood this very simple principle, everything else fell into place. Simply put, everything vibrates, absolutely everything, from the nucleus of an atom to the molecules of our blood, our organs, our brain, light, sound, plants, animals, earth, space, the universe; they all have one thing in common - they all vibrate.
This fundamental principle should be the basis of all science, as it is the 33 one principle that unifies everything, and if you can understand vibrations, everything else becomes clear.
Throughout this book, vibrations, whether they are in the form of sound, light, electricity, magnets or gravity, will be shown to be the number one factor that underlies the unexplained phenomena that Western science fails to understand.
Without an understanding of this science, we have been guided down the wrong path, to reach where we are today. Most of us have had a very poor scientific teaching in the way that life works, for if it were better, we would all look at plants, the solar system and our health in a completely different light.
I am pretty sure that some people are thinking that this is very common knowledge and it is well known that everything vibrates. I am sure this is true, but what they do not know is how vibrations interact with each other - this is the piece of the jigsaw that even makes me smile in anticipation while writing.
Maybe I get excited every time I explain my ideas just because I drink too much coffee. Or maybe you will think it is not coffee that I'm drinking too much of when I tell you that vibrations are bouncing around us everywhere, but it is the unique properties of water that provide the other amazing piece of the jigsaw; and one is not interesting without the other.
Water; what on earth can I be talking about? Since when has water been said to be of interest in terms of anything other than hydration? But no, water also has a unique property: it has the ability to shape-shift. Water is never just one thing. One day Matthew told me he had met a man, I don't know how he got in contact with him, a guy that he described to me as someone "who does weird stuff".
It was his way of saying that this man that he met was practicing what we all know as extremely alternative. He didn't tell me exactly what the treatment was because he knew that as he didn't believe in it why other people would. Most of us can't believe in something that we can't touch, or see, or prove. This man gave him a simple explanation of the problem. His son was like a car with a flat battery, no matter how much you fine-tuned the engine or fed it superior petrol the car would not start.

His son was unable to fight with the illness because it had no energy to do so. It's hard for a rational man, like me or Matthew to believe such an explanation and to accept that the solution was to take energy from the air and put it into his son. But what did Matthew have to lose. He had tried everything else, so he agreed to pay for a series of wacky treatments. The thing is that in 6 months, his son got better, and now, after two years, I had the chance to meet him in person and see that he is completely healed, he has re-started his life and has turned into a very nice and happy person.
That recovery made Matthew start asking questions about how was it all possible, why didn't the doctors know about this solution and was there any scientific studies that could help him to understand the process by which it all worked. As there was nobody there to answer his questions he started to look for the answers himself in the British Library. This was typical of him. So for the last year and a half the British Library was his second home.
What was lovely was that his happy personality came back and he began chatting with me again on Skype. He would often recount amazing things that he had discovered that day whist at the library, ideas that I found incredible. I am going to recount to you some of the things he discovered whilst he was researching the book. One of the first things he told me was about tree-hugging! You probably know that around the world there are people that hug trees.
Of course most of us think that it is just a hippy thing. I don't anymore because Matthew explained the science behind it. Combining this fact with the amazing properties of water, which he explained is a chameleon, it changes its vibration all of the time. It is all about vibrations and water. Another amazing thing Matthew told me about was at the beginning of his research, the collapse of the bee population.
All over the world there is a big problem these days, bees are disappearing. We all know that without bees, there will be no plants, and of course no humans pretty soon after that. Apparently bees are homing creatures and this ability to find their way home is disturbed by the multitude of GSM networks, satellites and all sorts of man-made electromagnetic fields that surround the Earth.
They will all land on the floor of the previous location of the hive and die.
I didn't! This is what the book is about. It provides amazing new ideas about so many unexplained phenomena, things that are talked about but not explained. That's why Matthew called the book "Blinded by science". This is primarily so because academics insist on reserving, for themselves, the ability to determine political significance.
Secondly, these academic-fans only pretend to be interested in surrendering their interpretive power and authority, since they retain the right to judge the fandoms they engage with and to find them politically lacking. The academic-fan lacks lack, while the fan is viewed through the perspective of imagined fan subjectivity, being immersed and passionate rather than hyperrationalised. He goes on to use a pragmatic approach to interpretation derived from the work of philosopher Richard Rorty.
Like many an academic before him, then, Hunter plays with abolishing the difference between fan and academic. The outcome of this academic play with fandom, however, is rather predictable. In his conclusion to Watching Television Audiences, John Tulloch examines three different studies of fandom: [O]nly two of the three researchers would self-describe as a fan of cult media [Henry Jenkins and Matt Hills].
The third saw the cult of as something that others mainly the young women she taught… were into [E. What can we learn about cultural and media studies from a study of academic fans and non-fans writing about other fans?
Studying academic-fans studying fans or themselves as fans! And finally, recent academic accounts have started, deliberately and purposefully, to confuse fan and academic subjectivities e. Doty ; Brooker ; Green, Jenkins and Jenkins But all these accounts—my own previous PhD work included—show a certain disregard for fandom.
All pick away at the consequences for academics who declare their own fandoms, asking if this is a move which challenges academic norms or one which produces a new brand of academic authority. What they consistently neglect is the possibility that fan and academic identities can be hybridised or brought together not simply in the academy but also outside of it, in the figure of the fan-scholar. Street smarts…and the great British amateur: the fan-scholar The first two words of my title here are borrowed from an intriguing book by Thomas McLaughlin—Street Smarts and Critical Theory: Listening to the Vernacular.
This split is also produced in Branston a. His own academic language therefore works against his conscious aim of focusing on and valuing fan theory. Nevertheless his work possesses a number of strengths which merit discussion. This levelling of the cultural playing field carries a number of conditions and provisos. Elite fans are scholars,14 yes, but they are still not quite academic scholars: they are not systematic or sustained enough, being only capable of flashes of theory.
Again, the choice of words here comes close to damning fandom with faint praise. McLaughlin is clearly operating within an academic imagined subjectivity. But the fan-scholars I want to consider briefly are fans who do exactly that: Thomas Noonan was the first New Fanboy…. He was one of the first fans to take litcrit techniques and terminology, ally them to a sense of theatre and throw them at the wall of conventional fandom.
The reaction to his work at the time was explosive. Bizarrely, the fanzine-as-dissertation has been entirely ignored in academic work on fandom. For example, Tim Robins was the first and founding editor of what later became the In-Vision fanzine series a critical history of Doctor Who carried out story-by-story. Robins went on to become a media and cultural studies lecturer at Glamorgan University.
Hence the object of analysis…is not cherished as a personal posses sion, domesticated, loved for the comforting store of intimate secrets it reveals to the aficionado. And even if the collapse of this opposition is only relevant for certain, well-educated sections of a fan culture,16 it remains a significant and underresearched fact that fan-scholars have directly drawn on academic knowledge in order to express their love for a text. Such an objection would allege that I have overstated my case, and that fandom and academia are not as mutually antagonistic as I have suggested.
Discussing such tensions, Pamela Church Gibson has recently observed that some of the fans of these films [the Alien franchise] may actually be antagonized by the activities of academics. Church Gibson —4 Leaving aside such incisive commentary, it becomes apparent—given fan-academic tensions—that the scholar-fan and the fan-scholar are necessarily liminal in their identities that is, they exist between and transgress the regulative norms of academic and fan imagined subjectivities.
For example, I am able to work as an academic, despite or rather, because of having been a fan of cult TV and science fiction all my life only because I present an identity which conforms to institutional expectations. But while differential institutional constraints act on fan and academic cultural practices and I can see no way that these institutional differences can be dissolved for as long as the university remains a residual site of cultural authority then fans and academics will remain opposed.
This creates a type of mutual marginalisation. Moral dualisms are created and sustained by systems of cultural value which defend communities against others. The important fact here is that both fans and academics defend and seek to value their activities by using common sense i.
Fan Cultures (Studies in Culture and Communication)
Academics are not resolutely rational, nor are fans resolutely immersed. The rest of this book… Part I: Approaching fan cultures This examines the various theories that academic studies of fandom have employed.
Along the way, it suggests problems and limits to these theories, and begins to build up a new model for academic work on fandom. There I will suggest that the moral dualism I have started to explore in this opening section is not the only opposition which structures fan and academic identities.
By returning to the work of the Frankfurt School theorists, in particular the much-maligned work of Theodor Adorno, I will reopen the topic of the fan-as-consumer.
This will then lead into a discussion in chapter 2 of sociological theories of fan culture which draw on the work of Pierre Bourdieu. Chapter 4 closes the first part of the book by addressing an approach to fan culture which stands accused of pathologising fans: psychoanalysis.That's why Matthew called the book "Blinded by science". This fundamental principle should be the basis of all science, as it is the 33 one principle that unifies everything, and if you can understand vibrations, everything else becomes clear.
However, whether the university and the academic measure up to the idealisations that are established for them is not the problem.
Most of us have had a very poor scientific teaching in the way that life works, for if it were better, we would all look at plants, the solar system and our health in a completely different light.
This contradiction may relate to specific fan cultures where the display of emotion is devalued, e. I can only sympathise with the observation made by John L.
