The Earth's Energies Work in Funny Ways!!

An early ampule of insulin, circa 1920s
Hi all.  I came to be interested in the historical figure Tecumseh in a very roundabout manner, which I'll discuss in the following two posts.  Of course, I don't really believe in random occurrence, knowing as I do now that most if not all of what we experience in our lives is largely predestined by our relationship to nature ("the divine goddess") and her multitudinous energies!  Large portions of my research during my time in Sedona happened to focus on how healing powers were channeled through the use of homeopathic herbal remedies, and how so-called 'professionalized' medicine often worked to counteract the wellness of the human body.

Dr. Frederick Banting in later life
While satisfied with much of the study I did in this area (in the past few decades, many dedicated souls have worked hard to create an alternate system of natural healing), I was left with questions about how 'professionalized' medicine had made particular discoveries whose benefits were undeniable yet which came about through methods contrary to my own naturalistic understandings of human health and well-being.  Encouraged to look deeper into this topic by my mentors Sky and Manuel, I chose a case study that, fortuitously, allowed me to revisit the place where I was born (and lived for the first three years of my life before moving to Carolina):  London, Ontario.  It was here that Frederick Banting first conceptualized extracting insulin and using it to treat sufferers of diabetes, thus greatly improving the quality (and longevity) of life for millions of people.  Traditional accounts of Banting's work left me unsatisfied - they were filled with jargon and the sort of hit-and-miss experimentation that simply did not feel natural to me.  So I ventured north to begin my investigation to see if I could come up with an alternate progressive explanation that counteracted the clinical narrative fed to us about Banting's discovery.  Luckily, my maternal grandparents still resided in the city, and, even luckier still, lived just a few blocks away from Banting House (the site of the medical practice Frederick Banting had set-up in 1920 that was now a museum honouring his legacy).

I will admit that the first week of my study in London was largely fruitless.  The staff at Banting House were helpful and polite, yet they seemed uninterested in the type of alternative research I was conducting.  They may have thought I was crazy, but crazy or not I was determined!  There was a certain energy that surrounded Banting House, and I could feel it even before I could place it.  My breakthrough came not there but after some research at the local university, where I met a person (who has asked me not to disclose their name or relationship to the institution) who had special access to writings of Banting's that had never been publicly disclosed.  On the promise of discretion, I was given two days access to these materials, which amounted to about two hundred pages of notes, and it was within them that I found the linkages.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Much of what Banting writes about in these papers is his belief in the works of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, a spiritual philosopher born in the Russian Empire in 1831.  Madame Blavatsky, as she was known to her adherents, was central in the foundation of the doctrine of Theosophy as well as its promulgating institution, The Theosophical Foundation.  Banting takes great pains in his writings to state just how much the teachings of Theosophy meant to his work, and that, contrary to what is stated officially by Banting House, he was drawn to London not because of a lack of work in Toronto but because of his readings of Blavatsky's The Secret Doctrine and consultations with other Theosophists in New York City.  These had lead him to believe that London represented a key portal for hidden spiritual knowledge.  According to the supernatural schema posited by Blavatsky, human beings would anthropogenically progress through communion with the non-physical world.  Upon contacting my mentors in Sedona, I was informed that Theosophy, while misguided in certain ways, represented a physical / non-physical synthesis that was widely seen as an antecedent of our own movement (sometimes simplistically referred to as "New Age").  I excitedly described my findings and they confirmed that it sounded as though Banting had discovered, while only partially realizing it, a vector site for the earth's energies to channel through him.  The clinical explanations for the discovery of insulin had been mere smokescreens, with Banting's own writings showing that his own following of Blavatsky's Theosophic precepts had lead him to the space wherein divine natural knowledge was imparted to him.  In other words, modern medicine was simply an extension of earth harmonics.

It was at my end of my trip in London, after my great discovery, that I began to make deeper connections to Tecumseh, who, I found out, was also bound to the area surrounding the city in remarkable ways.
