All of it is weird. That is one big, stinking pile of woo.

Yep, as soon as I got to "every cell and form of matter is simply a vibration" it was obvious that anything of value in the rest would be so mired in woo that it would be lost forever.

I find it highly unlikely the cure would be something so readily available in everyone's daily lives, or we would have figured it out already.

If I'm not mistaken, in order for something to be sold legally as a "cure for cancer" it would have to go through rigorous testing, peer review, trials, FDA approval etc. this all requires money to do. Once you went through all of these steps, then you can package, market and sell it.

I could be wrong, this is just my off-the-cuff musings.

Not wrong. Drugs have to go through at least 3 phases before they can be marketed. These phases are called Phase I, Phase II and Phase III. Link below.


You'll notice there's also a Phase IV trial. Phase III and Phase IV are similar in that they are carried out on large(-ish) groups of real patients. Phase III trials always have inclusion and exclusion criteria. For example, a Phase III trial may exclude pregnant women or patients who are taking statins. Phase IV trials are carried out in the general population and will generally include patients not included in the Phase III study.

Many drugs also undergo animal testing before Phase I.

Many drugs don't even get past Phase I or Phase II. And, even if they do, it can take a long time. Another link...
