Order Hemiptera (True Bugs, Cicadas, Hoppers, Aphids and Allies)

Suborder Heteroptera (True Bugs)

Superfamily Coreoidea

Family Coreidae (Leaf-footed Bugs) Also known as: leaf-footed bug, squash bug, clown bug, tip-wilter

All species of Coreidae are plant-feeders. Some Coreids live in leaf litter, but most nymphs and adults live above ground on their host plants where they may feed on seeds, fruits, stems or leaves.

Many occur on an astonishing variety of plants, while some are restricted to a single host, such as the squash bug, known for its destructive feeding on cucurbitaceae.

These insects have a distinctive proboscis, a “hypodermic-like” beak. “Like all true bugs, the adults are equipped with a beak, or rostrum, a hypodermic needle-like device carried under the head, which

it uses to pierce the plant tissue and suck out liquids. They do not simply "suck out sap" they inject a tissue-dissolving saliva and vacuum out the resulting slurry. Bugs cannot ingest solid food, and widespread damage to the plant is a result of these liquefying enzymes.“

A common species found on many trees and shrubs along woodland margins and meadows. Favored host plants incl. hickory, goldenrod, boneset, and Joe-Pye weed. The bugs have been frequently observed on bird droppings, and laboratory studies suggest they probe the droppings with their mouth parts, but it is not known whether or not they actually ingest any of the material. These bugs have

one generation per year. Adults pass the winter. Eggs are produced in late spring and early summer. There are five nymphal instars.

Their range includes eastern US and southern Ontario west to Colorado and Texas.

When handled or molested, they often give off a strong and sometimes unpleasant odor, a defensive secretion of the thoracic glands; the active compounds are mostly straight-chain aldehydes and ketones. cis-3-Hexenal, also known as (Z)-3-hexenal and leaf aldehyde, is colorless liquid and an aroma compound with an intense grassy-green odor of freshly cut green grass and leaves. It is one of the major volatile compounds in ripe tomatoes. It is also a pheromone in many insect species.

Proving

The specimen was captured after the Master Prover found it in her home in Boston MA in November 2010. This insect presented itself in her house twice in a few days. (Acanthocephala commonly

make their way indoors in the fall…)

It was identified as Acanthocephala terminalis using Kauffman’s Guide to North American Insects, and the identification was confirmed by the geographic distribution of the species. It is the only Acanthocephala known north of North Carolina and Oklahoma.

Initial trituration

The odor of freshly mown grass was distinct when the specimen was crushed in preparation for the initial trituration.

During the initial trituration to the 3 C, the feeling was light and child-like, happy-go-lucky. The physical sensations were focused on the digestive organs, with a great deal of nausea, stomach upset, burping, farting, and extreme hunger. There was also trouble with communication and numbers during the trituration. Afterwards, Jones had an experience of getting lost which was quite panic-inducing

in which she had no ability to sense direction or navigate and felt trapped. (Please see trituration notes at end of this document.)

Great Lakes Proving of Acanthocephala terminalis

One year later proving was conducted in Akron, OH according to the Great Lakes Protocol, but with a difference: the group triturated from a 3 C to 6 C. After the trituration, provers took a dose of the potentized 12 C and recorded symptoms for 14 days.

The provers were 3 women, aged 55, 47, and 35; one African American, one Iranian-British, and one Euro American. The provers did not know the identity of the substance.

N.B.: The Great Lakes Protocol team was interested in testing out the efficacy of triturating from a 3 C to a 6 C when someone is in the field and collects a live specimen -one subject to decay- it is difficult to conduct a proving on the spot.

One does need to triturate it to a 3 C within 24 hours to stabilize it. We needed to know if the Great Lakes Protocol would be as effective triturating from a 3 C to 6 C as it is from medicating potency

to 3 C. This proving shows that it is.

Commentary

The seemingly random appearance of this bug in the Master Prover’s home has led to a surprisingly meaningful proving. The sense of lightness and childishness that appeared in the initial trituration is

but one polarity of a remedy whose themes touch on invasiveness, vaccinations, AIDS, zombies, and death.

During the trituration, there was a discussion about forced vaccinations (“the stuff in vaccinations is worse than the disease”). Then the discussion went to AIDS/HIV in Africa, concerning people in Malawi or Nigeria being forced at gunpoint to vaccinate.

This led to the topic of former South Africa President Thabo Mbeki challenging the dominant western view about the origins of AIDS, and seeing poverty as a cofactor in the AIDS epidemic.

Provers talked about Jacques Pepin’s new book The Origins of AIDS which had just come out that same week. In this book epidemiologist Pepin traces the roots of AIDS in Africa back to the colonial health program of vaccinations in the early part of the 20th century. After careful analysis of colonial European health records, Pepin concludes that vaccinating with repeated use of glass syringes actually spread HIV from the blood of a colonial European infected with the simian virus to the indigenous West African population. The trituration discussion also touched on the prevalence of AIDS in Haiti.

Themes of death, zombies, horror, and the Grim Reaper appear in the provers’ dreams after the 12 C was taken.

In the trituration the provers also talked about transgressing psychic boundaries, and about protection from the evil eye. One prover drew a picture of an eye during the trituration.

Another main theme of this remedy is shit. Shit and eating shit were talked about in the trituration, and many proving symptoms centered on the bowels and rectum.

The light, child-like feeling of the initial 3 C trituration stands in sharp contrast to the themes that emerged in the 6 C trituration and the subsequent proving of the 12 C. This contradiction is the key

to understanding the remedy -- the child-like “not a care in the world” sentiment back -to- back with the discussion of AIDS in Africa, epidemics, vaccinations at gunpoint, and dreams of death and

the Grim Reaper. (The vaccination aspect is easier to understand given that the bug’s beak is like a needle!)

One of common names of Acanthocephala is “Clown Bug,” although it is more commonly known as “Leaf Footed Bug.” Clowns are associated with child-like behavior, and yet they can also have a

more sinister edge. They can have a trickster aspect.

In Yoruba religious traditions of West Africa and religions of the African diaspora, one of the central deities (orishas) is Eshu/Elegba, the guardian of the crossroads, or the arbiter of good fortune

or misfortune, life or death. A deity with a dual face like Hermes/Mercury, their realms are similar. One the one hand Elegba is often represented as a playful child, and yet its other side is Eshu, a messenger to the Underworld, or a representation of Death itself.

As the Clown Bug, Acanthocephala encompasses both ends of the spectrum, from childlike gaiety to the Grim Reaper, or more aptly, a conveyor of death in the guise of innocence…. For example, the French and Belgian public health officials described by Pepin in west Africa who brought illness and death with a benevolent demeanor. Homeopath Louis Klein has spoken about insects and the

concept of “benevolence” - a kind of “I know what’s best for you” attitude and not a true generosity of spirit.

This is an insect, after all, a bug which appears benign but which feeds on plants by injecting destructive saliva into them and the sucking out vital fluids. Homeopathically, bugs are…well, buggy.

They get in our space. (The Master Prover just experienced months of a squash bug invasion in her home - squash bugs are a close cousin of the Leaf-footed Bug. These handsome bugs were quietly hanging out everywhere… even on her toothbrush!)

This is a remedy for someone who seems nice and well-meaning but who oversteps boundaries in a toxic way. In one of the key dreams during the proving, a prover wrote: “ I was supposed to have boundaries and just advise people in their job, but I got involved and helped them get things done…”

Again, the dreamer seemed to be helpful and benevolent, but in the dream she believes that having boundaries is “bullshit.” She knows what’s best!

Themes:

Overstepping Boundaries: Protection from Evil eye/magic/psychics

1: T A healer came to work with people in Cleveland - he would just look at people. Healing through the eyes

2: T --- wears a piece of turquoise

2: T people used to carry an the evil eye amulet.

2: T had a psychic reading last night. Was told be careful not to step on toes.

2: T was the reading a palm reading. You’re a warm person, a lot of warmth around you, be careful of not stepping on people’s toes

3: T used to have a chi gung teacher who would present to lots of people - he would send out energy and they would fall asleep

3: T opposite of the evil eye

3: T all kinds of energy comes out of the eyes

3: T looks like the evil eye… or is it the power of suggestion not the evil eye, protection from the evil eye.

3: T they tried to vaccinate people in Africa, people forced at gunpoint. Nigeria or Malawi. In Africa they are very suspicious of vaccinations

3: T I had a reading too

 

Master Prover: T Jacques Pepin book on Origin of AIDS in which it is alleged that vaccinations were the original vector for spreading AIDS in Africa

1:1

I dreamed I was with a group of people, we all belonged to an organization or religion, something like that, or a group that worked together. We were on the beach, gathering driftwood. Then we were in a house and I was getting ready for a date later with

my ex [who in real life has died]. I remember he was part of the group. He kissed me lightly on the lips in passing. I was excited, looking forward to more of that later. There was a knock at the door. I opened the door -- a young woman stood there, I was

young too in this dream. She had a newspaper clipping which she showed me. Something to do with the ex. She was upset and she said he had lied to her. To backtrack, before I answered the door I was doing some sort of job in this group. I remember thinking,

it is bullshit not to try to help people. I was supposed to have boundaries and just advise people in their job, but I got involved and helped them get things done. I woke up at the door.

In the dream, the sensation was that the weather was warm and sunny. Everyone was wearing shorts. It was very pleasant, same pleasant, relaxed feeling.

Overstepping Boundaries: Vaccination/AIDS

2: T germs - not touching anything in a public bathroom.

2: T Malaria vaccine. Stuff in vaccinations worse than disease.

2: T vaccination is not immunization.

3: T they tried to vaccine people in Africa, people forced at gunpoint. Nigeria or Malawi. In Africa they are very suspicious of vaccinations

3: T Thabo Mbeki got into political trouble for questioning AIDS - is it real. He thought it was a reflection of poverty - not a disease on its own. Figures of numbers of cases are inflated to get funding              

2: T Because of Haiti’s history of colonization and the AIDS epidemic, it is a place very much in the syphilitic miasm

2:1 Dream: watching a movie with commercials, at a theater. Dad and son in attached chairs.  Dad in front ascending first into the air, up a wire. It felt dangerous, punishment or execution imminent.  Watching faces on ascent. Dad’s hand swelled up huge (I knew he was imagining it). Then his face shrunk, narrow, his eyes stayed big. I was thinking, I know this remedy: cherry.  The movie mom underneath the chairs - big hands, tiny head. Then a commercial for another movie, a girl, singing “I’m not hot.” She was all made up but hated herself. Also in there visiting at my homeopath, but it was still a movie. A teenage girl isolating herself, cant deal with people, goes to room and says, “I’m desperate enough already.” Her closet is not that of a teen, alarmingly neat, fastidious.

I know this remedy again: aurum.  We are all worried for her.

2: 9 slept poorly, had watched a scary video, not typical for me to watch, a British car commercial that never aired, a ghostly white form around a car.

3: 5 Dream: while asleep in front of TV tuned in to a horror movie, I was in some unfamiliar place. Went outside, a man was being punished by having to lie down and was stepped on by an elephant, after which his guts spurted out onto the ground. I was being followed by someone who may have been the Grim Reaper, although she looked like one of my students. She wore a sign on her chest that seemed to keep a tally of her wins and losses. Every time I turned around in my dream she was there smiling. I did manage to knock her down and make her fall over something, then I think I got away.

Trouble adding minutes on clock

Big burping!!

Restless

Nauseous, feels like it’s a struggle, uncoordinated, hard to grind, move coordinated.

Feeling lightheaded, tired.

 

P is really hungry, she is grinding and burping… Sensation of P’s mouth is disconnected from her body. That I am all these disparate parts. My arm is disconnected. Hunger but gurgling in my stomach.

 

Discussing ”whether we suck everything out of the fridge”. Burping and hungry at the same time.

Feeling of rolling in the stomach. Grooving with scraping. Burping lots (big three times)

P feels very unemotional. Wants to go to sleep, wants cucumber.

 

Prepares a plate of vegetables - cucumbers, carrots, green and red tomatoes, white balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, feta. Very uncharacteristic. Food tastes really good. Averse red tomato, like green tomatoes, cukes taste especially good.

Food tasted very alive, heightened taste, orgasmic eating. P JUST WANTS TO EAT.

P is burping (we are laughing). Feel a little high. For C the cucumber does not taste great but bitter, old. The noise of the car (outside)  is loud and its scares us.

The sun has come out. It is like I don’t have a care in the world (da de da de da de do) (music note drawing). Who cares about anything? Child like

Desires green and white food.

Bopping, childish, young, light

Got cold, had to put on sweater.

Burping, this is a light bug, it feels happy and light. C is sneezing. Moving back and forth, side to side while sitting on my heels. Farting. Itchy right ring finger. Moving up and down –head- very small movements. P is very cold. Having a problem with numbers.

Eating again, yumm!, carrots, rocking, cold.

After the 3C trituration and the two provers parted, one had a panic inducing experience of getting lost. She doubted whether she could find the right street and asked herself, am I doing this right?

She couldn't find her way out, and had no ability to sense direction or navigate. She felt trapped -hence the panic- that she couldn't find the right street.
