Your Circle of Peace Beta-Blocker is an ACTIVE AGENT for Peace. It works through radio-wave vibrations to bring about a real change in yourself and at the same time exerts a small "sphere of influence" around you, an aura of Peace and Harmony which will profoundly affect your environment. At the same time, it works to bring YOU into the Parallel World where World Peace actually exists. Change the world by changing worlds. This is a recorded message from outside the SIM.
