Philosophy of Touch: Promo

Philosophy of Touch from Mohawk Steel on Vimeo.


When Jack Kruse invited me to do a webinar with him I was excited.  I decided to share some of my story and how it relates to moving more efficiently. Through the avenues of acro yoga, climbing and sculpture I want to share my discoveries.  Jack’s insight is compelling. I can’t wait of the question and answer portion of the webinar. Wether you have Cystic Fibrosis or not, I hope to inspire you to move. Jack will inspire you to think.

The story will be featured on for March 2014. 

This is a sneak peak he put up on his Forum:

The webinar and Q&A have inspire me to write a little more of my philosophy. I am reluctant altho excited to share it. Here it is…


I am grateful to Ben Smith for his excellent filming and editing skills.

Rarely…………do I let the cat out of the bag…………But the March 2014 webinar is one I wanted to do after we cleared the hurdles of what cysteine and water mean to the redox potential of human cells.

Many of you come on here and do not like when I hound you on details of wellness. When I tell you how the redox potential is critical to gaining it.

In March, I introduce you to someone who can never have an optimal redox potential because he does not the have the ability to have what most of you have. Instead, he sees himself where he is now. He deals with his present moment because that is all he and his parents were promised by my profession.

Jeremy Thomley has a fatal disease. That is what they say…………………

I say, Jeremy has the proof that anyone can overcome a poor redox potential and still succeed. Jeremy is the optimal I seek in my life. In fact, I think Jeremy shows what one can do when they believe in themselves. Jeremy sees the world through his fingers and body. He connects with the Earth more than anyone I know. He has no clue why he initially did it or continues to do it. I think I do. We talk about this linkage in this webinar. This is probably one of the best webinars I will do for you because it shows you just what is possible when you believe you are a broken human. Jeremy has always been told he was and could never escape that fate: and it has never stopped him. He does more with less, than most do with their best. Jeremy takes the hand he was dealt and plays it.

He can do more than I can because he made his limitations stretch his canvas to open him to a new world. A world where your disease, your illness, your failings, create strength. He shows us it’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it that does. He uses touch to overcome his CTFR defect. He can not handle iodine across his basements like you can no matter what he does. It does not break him, it makes him better.

He maximizes touch to overcome it. He knew implicitly as a young child how to overcome his issue. He climbed to be connected with Earth most of his life. When one touches, you gain access to the Earth’s current. That current electrifies collagen. Collagen touches every single molecule of water in our body. Water is the most abundant molecule in each of us. Jeremy stumbled into his Rx by climbing and collecting electrons and photons. Jeremy found how to out work his fate. He uses Nature’s laws to outwit my profession. They told his mom he would be dead at 6 years old. I met her and heard the story for myself. Today he is 31 years old. In fact, today he is climbing mountains in Utah. He will come home Sunday and soon talk to members about what he found and how he overcomes his redox potential. He accepts no excuses. He only seeks answers. He is someone who has my ultimate respect and admiration. I am pleased to call him my friend.

With touch, the collagen architecture in our body is deformed. When collagen is deformed it releases an electric signal. We call this piezoelectric ability. The pressure, the change in electric and magnetic fields are propagated in collagen to every single crevice of our body. This information is then transferred to all parts of our body including our brain, via water in CSF. On the surface of our brain lies our neocortex. Time after time data has shown no matter how broken our brain is, (think AD or PD) exercise and movement increase the function of our brain. It increases our performance. Stop for a moment and watch Jeremy perform in the video below. Think about the “fasted training thread” post on this very form. Jeremy does all this with hypoxia constantly, not chronically as someone with cancer deals with. I told you in CPC 8 the effect of chronic hypoxia. I want you to examine Jeremy’s video below. Do you think he overcomes his genetic defect with awesome epigenetic direction? I think you know what I think about that question.

Touch is one way we can overcome a poor redox potential. Recovering your redox potential is not an environmental story, or a supplement only, or diet only story. I want you to meet my bud. He teaches me every time we gather at my place or at his Christmas tree farm, just what constitutes health. Jeremy has cystic fibrosis. He has accomplished more than most people will ever accomplish, who have a normal genome and are illness free.
CFTR, the gene associated with cystic fibrosis, encodes the protein cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator. The gene was identified in 1989 and is found at 7q31.2, the long arm (q) of chromosome 7 at position 31.2. CFTR regulates the movement of chloride and sodium ions across epithelial membranes, such as the alveolar epithelia located in the lungs. Most people without CF have two working copies of the CFTR gene, and both copies must be missing for CF to develop, due to the disorder’s recessive nature. CF develops when neither copy works normally (as a result of mutation) and therefore has autosomalrecessive inheritance. The protein spans this membrane and acts as a channel connecting the inner part of the cell (cytoplasm) to the surrounding fluid. This channel is primarily responsible for controlling the movement of halogens from inside to outside of the cell; however, in the sweat ducts it facilitates the movement of chloride from the sweat into the cytoplasm. When the CFTR protein does not work, chloride and thiocyanate are trapped inside the cells in the airway and outside in the skin. Most of you following this blog may realize how Jeremy genome hampers him with respect to water chemistry and halogen chemistry. Have a close look at the video below. Is it an impediment? Or can we all learn something from him?

When someone tells Jeremy “no,” it doesn’t mean he can’t do it, it simply means he can’t do it with them.
Good results are difficult when indifference predominates. You must seek your answer. When we are seeking our answer, we cannot be indifferent about the questions we ask, because we want the answer that brings transformation. So, the first questions that lead to the right answers we must ask of ourselves: Am I making a positive deposit into my future? What will I reap from this decision? What is motivating me to take this action? When we ask ourselves the right questions we will lead ourselves to the right answers. The problem is not to find the answer, it’s to face the answer. Begin to live with the answer than die with the question.
Here is my friend Jeremy. Here is the beginning of the March webinar for members in 2014.  -Jack


The continued discovery of “The Philosophy of Touch” will be discussed in depth in an ongoing blog post under Cystic Fibrosis.
