The Buzz Honey of the Queens by Dan Winter with Deborah Louth & David Yarrow [editted 10/28/96]
Honey carries codes of stars and planets as they beam their energy to Earth. Flowers, being of the highest energy vibration in the Natural World, carry the codes of geometry that interlock Earth's magnetic grid with the paths of the stars.
Flowers, then, capture and hold this information, and release it in their pollen and nectar. Pollen, the male seed element -- the sperm -- of plants, fertilizes flowers in plants' reproductive climax.... and, ultimately, too, the honeybee queen. Workers of the honeybee kingdom graciously collect the sacred nectar and pollen -- food of worker bees and drones, and raw material for queen-making royal jelly. Royal jelly, known as "bee's milk," is in the sense of Gaia, "lactate," and contains the DNA-RNA braid of hive memory.
God Save the Queen! This article is inspired by the 1996 disaster ("dis-astare" = disconnect from stars) of North American beekeeping, when 90% of honeybee hives died from mite infestation.. Ultimately, the practice of killing and replacing queens is the single most awful cause of this widespread death of American honeybees, and collapse of the bee industry.
Scientists scratch their heads at this death of immune strength of virtually every beehive, while their other blind hand passes laws saying beekeepers MUST kill the queen every time a hive burps with ANYTHING even slightly uncomfortable to the ..... checkbook. ... requeen if you have a failing queen, ... requeen if there is a hint of assertiveness in your hive ... requeen if hive reproduction is even slight bother to cash flow
"THE QUEEN CONTROLS THE HIVE THROUGH PHEROMONES, WHILE HER REPRODUCTIVE MATERIAL ACTS AS THE GENETIC GRAND CENTRAL STATION FOR HER OFFSPRING." --
quote from "Buying Queens: What You Need to Know," by Walter Clark, Bee Culture Magazine, March 94. Regular routine re-queening of hives -- as often as every other year - - prevents natural hive reproduction and swarming. Imagine never having the ecstatic rush of the vortex in a swarm dance of bees around a free queen. How would our children be if systematically deprived of reproductive ecstacy for generations? Eventually, twinkle would be lost and they would fall ill.
Queens are intended to live to the seventh generation, much like the Peacemaker instructed native Americans. What would happen to native immune systems if tribal councils were genetically destroyed every two years, like beekeepers do queens? In a sense, commercial queen producers don't sell queens. Like breeders of other domesticated animals, they sell TRAITS, or their shallow idea of what BEE MEMORY SHOULD BEE...
A newly arrived queen, fresh from the mailman's pouch, is an alien royalty that may not be accepted by bees. Or she may not be up to her tasks, not well-prepared for her job. Conservation of Memory But the real issue is the discontinuity of memory. This is in truth the cause of the weakeniing and collapse of hive immune identity. Deborah says beekeepers imagine the natural state is new queens kill old queens in a ritual. Really, THEY HAVE NO IDEA IF CRITICAL HIVE MEMORY PASSES BETWEEN QUEENS IN THAT RITUAL.
In Frank Herbert's DUNE, when a dying Reverend Mother queen passed her memory to her successor, their skulls touched, and sparks of memory inhabited the younger queen's dreamspace. After that, all the old queen's life-memory flowed in the young. If, instead of killing and replacing queens, we catch the new swarm, we would prove we can make a home for the hive worth the service provided later by a percentage of the sweetness.
Mysteriously, the modern apiary practice of feeding honeybees sugarwater started just before the current onset of bee destruction and rapid spread of tracheal mites. Such sugarwater lacks the essential trace elements, oils and molecular geometries needed to store magnetic charge, and thus is empty of memory, devoid of information, and context poor.
Shape of Memory Honeybees wander into fields looking for what flowers produce in their folder of nectar. In flower, plants open their innermost essences to the outer environment, and an electromagnetic channel is created between sky and soil.... from heaven into the earth. This ultimate moment of sexual fulfillment is carefully timed within complex rhytmns of season, weather, ecology, and soil. At the moment of bloom, a flower is charged by the polarized flux between atmosphere and ground. To a pollinating insect, a mature, ripe blossom is lit up in like an ELF lightbulb, signaling its readiness for fertilization and the availability of bee-feed.
Most plants display their greatest color, form and scent at this ecstatic climax of their life cycle. A flower's shape harvests MAGNETISM, and puts that charge into the blossoms -- a plant's minute cradle to hold that charge. Every type of flower yields a unique honey imprinted with distinct flavor imparted by its special blend of trace minerals, essential oils and complex bio- molecules. Nectar's liquid crystal rings of sugar, doped with minute blends of trace elements and essential oils, act like a solid state device, transforming carbohydrate crystals into semi- and superconductors. So the shape of long-wave flux in the land's magnetic braid concresces and converges into pollen and nectar. The SHAPE of the local flower field is fractal folded as orderly spin (charge) in geometric array.
Therefore, nectar is literally the FOLDED SURFACE OF THE LAND. EL-LAND- GUAGE is literally "the gauge of the land." In pollen, this charge condenses as crystal bio-molecular geometry. If the bioregion's long-wave magnetism looks like a flower, then you get flowers. If local geomagnetism looks like a tangled mess, then you get desert, no flowers, no nectar, no honey, no memory. This fractal infolding and encoding of magnetic shape into embedded memory captured in geometric crystal forms is the essence of Geomancy. Sweet Memories Thus, coded memory of shape in land's long-wave magnetic web is folded into nectar and pollen. Immunity requires identity ("eye-dent-I-tie") rooted in memory -- how fold is coded in braid on a folded surface. Sweetness is always only a measure of how efficient and extensive is the BRAIDING. Braid the land's magnetism well, and you get sweetness. Honey is concentrated essences of plants in their act of braiding DNA -- the memory of vegetal ecstacy.
