As I marked with arrows on the chart, rising solar activity impelled the period of the Enlightenment, particularly by Puritans in England: from the natural philosophy of Newton and John Locke’s ideal of liberty, to the Founding Fathers of the United States in 1776. But, as solar radiation peaked, began a long period of decline from the 1780’s to 1930’s, as the period called modernism in philosophy gave way to postmodern philosophy. This brought to the period of the German counter-Enlightenment, led by Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason (1780’s)to Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche’s existentialist philosophy, Heidegger, and finally culminating in Hitler’s cult of Nazi-Socialism.



Light – Testosterone – Liberty

Solar activity (Light) raises Testosterone levels and brings a culture of masculine independence and a spirit of liberty and Enlightenment (from Light)!

Historical Sunspot chart proves it with peaks in solar activity:

1776 – United States Declaration of Independence!

1833 – Great Britain abolishes slavery!

1865 – United States abolishes slavery!

1940-50’s – Western liberty wins over Nazi-Socialism!

1987 – Fall of Soviet communism!


New Study: Boost Testosterone and Libido with Light Therapy
Researchers say the kind of lamps used to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder can also help guys suffering from low sexual desire.

“In the Northern hemisphere, the body’s testosterone production naturally declines from November through April, and then rises steadily through the spring and summer with a peak in October,” Fagiolini says. “You see the effect of this in reproductive rates, with the month of June showing the highest rate of conception.”

The light box mimics what nature does by triggering something in the brain called the pineal gland (responsible for producing melatonin), which may allow the production of more testosterone, the researchers believe.


How to increase serotonin in the human brain without drugs

Exposure to bright light is a second possible approach to increasing serotonin without drugs. Bright light is, of course, a standard treatment for seasonal depression, but a few studies also suggest that it is an effective treatment for nonseasonal depression and also reduces depressed mood in women with premenstrual dysphoric disorder and in pregnant women suffering from depression.


In this chart below, depicting the demography of Victorian England, we can study the rhythm and flow of fertility rates and correlate it with solar activity during this period. In the Enlightenment period of 1680-1800, fertility rates rose sharply, as light raises testosterone levels. However, during the following period, began a rapid decline in birth rates, as solar activity declined into the 1930’s. In the 1950’s rise in solar activity again led to the Baby Boom.
