  • Jul 14 2012: Perhaps for some this might be useful: the earliest historical use of the ____ I have found was in Hammuraby's code, part of Babilon's legilsation in those times. Reading it links into integrating it with Judaic culture, Greece and its myths, and other cultures in that timeline.

    How I came about it/used it.
    Watching/Following internet mediatized worldwide events, I experienced strong cuffs/bracelet feelings on both my arms. Nature of senzation is strong enough for uncomfortability, yet weird enough not to fit in any of medicine's commonly known symptomatics. Seeing a magazine picture of climbing hooks/tools as arm extensions helped relieve the intensity of that unpleasant feeling. (I kept thinking bracelets, slighty Peter Pan's Captain Hook, but the feeling had a clear mind association with tight cuffs). For some reason, thinking about tablets connected my curiosity if there were any more Codes in ancient times besides the Ten Commandments, and with research I found Hammuraby's and more. Though apparently cruel, is yet another system for some order in apparently barbaric or overly-liberal times/region. Sadly, there were bruising and teeth incidents at work, others and myself included, while I was reading and immersed in observing such connections in the living culture dialect around, in an enviroment with low wages and no dental subsidy.
    Awareness of that code dissipated the cuffs/arm grabs/bracelets/whatever it was impression completely, uptodate.

    Just to clarify, I am commenting/writing on the use of ____, and not on the "what the world needs" question.
