Here's a shocker for most people: vestibular (motion and balance) sensory deprivation during infancy is very closely tied to depression, sociopathy and violence in the resulting adult. The US NIH initially funded and then disavowed and suppressed this groundbreaking, revolutionary research in the 60's. To this day they deny that it ever happened. Why?
Upon reflection it's clear that the way we raise babies in this society is radically different from how humans have been raised for 99% of the time the human race has been in existence. In primitive tribes, babies are carried constantly, usually in a sling of some kind, either breastfeeding or just along for the ride. In the fetal environment, motion and hearing are virtually the only sensory inputs into the developing brain, so depriving infants of the motion they experienced before they were born by leaving them in a state of constant motionlessness such as a hospital "isolette" might well be interpreted as a form of abandonment by their mother. But there's no need to speculate about why a lack of normal bodily motion is harmful to a baby. Whatever the reason, the behavioral and neurological data is clear: babies need to be carried to be fully developed as happy, compassionate beings.
When you see a child lying horizontally in a carrier or a stroller, think about the difference in vestibular and tactile sensory input between that and being carried against its mothers or father's body, and think of the social costs of raising generations of such sensory deprived and neglected people. The NIH's censorship of this research is consistent with the elite agenda of social and family destabilization which is already manifest in so many other areas.
Mass social control requires the destruction of social alternatives. The primary alternative to state-worship is family and community, which are mediated by human emotional connections. Thus the censorship of this profoundly liberating knowledge is an arrow into the heart of humanity itself. What is documented below is a tragedy of unspeakable proportions, which is utterly avoidable simply by empowering women to mother their children the way any mother would want to: as kindred souls.
Devotees of the "coincidence theory" of national collapse should explain why the high priests of health at the NIH chose to defund and then deny the existence of this revolutionary research into the precursors for human happiness and social cohesion. They could ask similar questions of the american medical association, the american pediatric association, the american college of obstetrics and gynecology, the american psychiatric association and all the other defenders of american medical dogma, the too-big-to-fail "health" monopolies that brutalize and exploit children for profit every day.
Can there be any doubt that satanic evil is afoot in the highest corridors of power in this country?

It is generally known (back to medieval or ancient times) that deprivation of sensory stimuli like voice and vision in the early phases of human life will cause irreversible mental retardation in the child. Also the prevention of child play will cause intellectual deficits in the adult. But eyes, ears and the nose are not the only human sensory systems. Additionally there are the two body sensor systems, the "somatosensors". One is the vestibular sensor for maintaining orientation and upright walk. The other one is the skin, for sensing touch.

MOTHER BONDING IS ESSENTIAL FOR PEACE
Through the work of James W. Prescott, Ph.D. and various others until the mid 1970s it was established that these previously neglected senses are of overwhelming importance for the development of social abilities for adult life. Their deprivation in childhood is a major cause for adult violence.
James W. Prescott, Ph.D., was a health scientist administrator at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one of the Institutes of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1966 to 1980. He created and directed the Developmental Behavioral Biology Program at the NICHD where he initiated NICHD supported research programs that documented how the failure of "Mother Love" in infant monkeys adversely affected the biological development of their brains. These astonishing abnormal brain changes underlie the behaviors of depression, impulse dyscontrol and violence that result from mother-infant separations.
CULTURES THAT PUNISH INFANTS OR REPRESS SEXUALITY ARE VIOLENT
These behavioral effects were confirmed in his studies on primitive cultures including the effects of sensory deprivation of human sexual pleasure and affection during adolescence. The results of these scientific studies do not support the many traditional religious and cultural values throughout the world which deny the importance of "Mothering" and of youth affectional sexual relationships for peaceful and loving behaviors.
The continuation of this research was obstructed and eventually cancelled by the NICHD. Even the existence and results of these NICHD supported research programs was consciously omitted in a recent NIH publication. On this web site, you can read the whole story.
