Techelet Portends Clarity

כ"ז בשבט תשס"ז

In my previous entry, I discussed copper and the diagnostic value of the deep blue color that can result from its reaction with ammonia, a constituent of healthy human urine. I further linked a deep blue diagnostic outcome to effectively clearing toxic waste from the body and to health.

Torah tells us to look at (investigate and seek to understand) the deep blue techelet thread and copper to remember and to be healed. Ok, we previously saw the connection of copper and deep blue to health, but what is the connection to memory and mental clarity?

One possibility - acute confusional states and delirium can be related to uremia. Uremia is a toxic condition caused by the buildup of nitrogen-bearing urinary waste products, including ammonia, in the blood. This occurs when the toxins cannot be cleared from the body and eliminated in the urine.

Thus, a deep blue color outcome of an ancient copper "medical assay" (suggesting adequate removal of urinary toxins) would portend mental clarity and remembrance. Likewise, absence of the deep blue color (suggesting inadequate removal of urinary toxins, and thus buildup in the blood) would portend confusion and forgetting.
