Project: Euryphaessa has been an on-going series of experiments I've been conducting behind the scenes and during the summer silence on here. The idea is to enhance and even add to the available senses based on prior scientific research.
Biological night vision is the enhancement of your own eyes rather than using an electronic/chemically powered device to intensify available light. In this case, the basis of the tests was the SFM experiment as seen here:
Code: Select all
First, you need Chlorin E6, DMSO, human insulin, and saline solution.
Chlorin E6 is the light intensifier. DMSO dissolves and allows the Ce6 to more readily absorb into the eye. Insulin also aids in absorption but more importantly it slows transport of ABCG2 which increases Ce6 usage. Saline solution is simply a buffer to reach proper concentration.
Being able to measure properly is important. Failing lab grade supplies, you can convert the measurements to ml and use a common measuring spoon set to ensure you use the proper amount of each item. There is room for error. If you are barely over or under on any given thing, the risk is less healthwise and more efficiency of the night vision. You can also use existing droppers in lieu of a micropipette. 50ul is basically "one drop". Finally, sonication is mentioned as the mixing method. You can shake the combination vigorously but one thing you need to know is that you don't want to do this in a container which can catch particles. This was a particular headache I suffered when the Ce6 stuck to surfaces and failed to mix and dissolve initially. Make sure it's a tiny container with smooth surfaces!
So read the PDF. Get the items you need (sources below). Measure out each reagent in its proper amount either via small graduated cylinders or just use the spoons after conversion. Pour into mixing container - preferably something with tiny dropper drop so you don't need to transfer - using a funnel to ensure there is no spillage. Shake vigorously for a minute and place into a refrigerator immediately. Usage instructions forthcoming.
But first, let's talk reagent handling. Saline solution is straight forward. Insulin you should be careful with but note that it does not absorb through the skin readily - at least not without DMSO. It also needs to be kept refrigerated. DMSO absorbs easy as shit and you NEED to take care that it doesn't get on you because it will take anything else with it including potentially dangerous molecules. Finally, Ce6 needs to be kept fairly cold - in the freezer if kept in powdered form.
Usage requires some knowledge and care, you can't just drop and go. Dosage involves three drops per eye, or three 50ul drops. Use one hand to hold your eyelids open so you can't blink the solution out and apply one drop to the white on the inside of the pupil. After the drop, allow time for absorption and quickly use the same hand used to drop to put pressure just below your tear duct so solution does not escape that way. Repeat until you have absorbed three drops per eye.
At this point, your eyes will gradually increase in light sensitivity for the next 1.5-2 hours until reaching peak performance. From here you will more slowly degrade for roughly 6 hours until you return to normal vision. There are no after effects - once the effect is gone it's gone. Sensitivity will be such that bright lights will cause you problems and I advise you to work out a solution ahead of time to prepare for this. For night ops, I recommend a black nylon shade that can be pulled over the eyes for bright areas or lights pointed toward you. There is risk of staring into bright lights but don't worry - you're not going to be staring into bright lights. It's too repulsive and you will instinctively look away preventing it from being a problem.
Think of the effect as your eyes adjusting to the night. Only with the drops, you adjust another order of magnitude that much more.
A lot of research has gone into this and I am probably taking a lot for granted and leaving things out on preparing and applying the Ce6 solution. If anyone has questions on this, please let me know.
Where do you get your shit? Well it's not too bad.
Saline solution can be found anywhere. Might as well bundle it with your DMSO though, because the best source for that is probably Amazon. Get yourself some 99% DMSO and standard saline flushing solution.
Ce6 can be had at Medkoo bioscience. You will need to email them for the order but it is painless and they will ship ASAP. International orders are also possible so good news to those outside of the US.
This leaves insulin. I acquired mine from a diabetic locally, no questions asked. As I understand it, you can obtain some brands without a prescription but I don't know about international acquisition of this. In theory the formula should work without it if that's what it comes down to, but it will lose effectiveness as the Ce6 will have to compete more with other compounds in the ocular pathways.
Well, we had to have something new eventually right? More to come. This is just the beginning.
