Digital detoxing

I continue with my digital detox. For want of a better word. By digital detox I mean:

  • Minimise exposure to EMF –
  • Turn on Wifi only when I really need to and turn it off as soon as possible
  • Use 4G on my phone as little as possible – otherwise have it on airplane mode or at worst, just to receive calls and texts
  • Work towards dumping my smartphone in the future
  • Try to stay away from WiFi – very difficult as it is everywhere (we once thought that was good)
  • Use my computer – which uses a wired connection – in preference to any wireless connection devices
  • Replace Bluetooth keyboard with a wired one – my mouse was already a wired one
  • Buy blue light blocking glasses to wear when using the PC and other devices
  • Turn off electricity as much as possible at night in the bedroom
  • Gradually move from using the services of large corporations to smaller ones that do not collect my data – often meaning paying for the services.
  • Keep location service off on my phone except when I am using it – last month I turned it on only for Grab – so my monthly report from Google as to my movements was almost blank. Progress!
  • Use social media rarely – I achieved that over a year ago, anyway
  • Try to spend more time in nature without my smartphone.
  • Find out what the governments here are planning to do with regards to 5G
  • Avoid airport full body scanners – so far so good
  • Learn more about 5G and how to shield myself from the damage of EMF

we need to dump the Smartphone

It really is soon getting time to dump the smartphone. It’s been fun. And very convenient. And we love our phones, I know. I don’t want to dump the smartphone. But there are big consequences if we don’t. So how do we do it? (And to read my free “truth” newsletter, click here.)

The future – if we don’t dump the smartphone

But let’s look at the future. At the endgame. If people don’t dump the smartphone, what is going to happen? But dumping it may not be enough. Furthermore, r.ejecting 5G may not be enough.

Let’s look at the worst case scenario that we can imagine at the moment. Now, I don’t know if any or all of these things are going to be imposed. However we do get hints from China and India, among other countries, that they will.


Papaya leaf tea aka free tea

Papaya leaf tea can be free tea. If you pick and dry the leaves yourself.

Get some papaya leaves, cut them up, dry them in the sun and steep in boiling water for around 10 minutes.

Growing papaya

If you have no access to papaya trees it’s very easy to grow them. Buy a nice papaya, eat it, but save the seeds.  Put a few seeds in a big pot with soil where it will get some sun. A balcony will be fine.  Their germination rate is phenomenal, so you should just thin out the seedlings so you have one per pot eventually.

Mosquitoes are back!

Mosquitoes are back, unfortunately. Just then I went outside. I looked down at my bare leg. Ugh. A mosquito. I hit it immediately and that was it. An ex-mosquito. I’d killed it before it even had a chance to bite me.

Which reminds me of a funny conversation I had with a Japanese girl once in Tokyo many years ago. We were talking about James Bond and Sean Connery. And she said, “Sean Connery is killed.” At that time, the actor wasn’t so old. I was shocked. But it turned out what she was saying was, “Sean Connery is kilt”. Meaning he was wearing a kilt. Well, I found it amusing.

5G is coming to Malaysia

If you look at the news at all it’s hardly a surprise that 5G is coming. The question most likely is, “When?” Much less likely is the question, “If?” or “Will scientists research it for safety before it’s introduced?”

Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC) chief digital officer Gerard Lim said in April 2019 that will be possible for Malaysians to start using 5G by 2021 or 2022. Some areas may have it earlier.

It is time to look into this issue before it becomes too late. . This is a shorter form of what I will be writing in a report for my upcoming membership newsletter.

5G – what is it good for?

So, who would be opposed to much faster Internet? Probably no one.

5G is 20 times faster than 4G. And latency – that is, the response time – is 50 times better than 4G.
