1. Context and Rationale behind this declaration.

This overall indemnity declaration is envisioned beyond professional / academia declaration of “transparency” at disclosing This Author’s (AW™) frank “credibility” limitations. But nonetheless implore the much needed empathy at questioning present dogmatism. Surrounding academic barriers prohibiting or preventing ~ benevolent intents off emerging independent “Health”, “Nutrition” and/or “Fitness” advocacy channels alike. 

This Author (AW™) solemnly invites you ~ for your timely acquainting with this declaration’s Background Context and (in response) ~ This Author’s (AW™) Rationale/s ~ from insisting and maintaining this Concept Initiative, despite limited credibilities. 

This Author (AW™) also encourage new or prospective readers to consider viewing the “About This Author” page. As this details This Author’s  industry background and his professional on-going obligatories, outside this Concept Initiative. 

1.1 Context ~ Credibility Criticism

“Health” and/or “Wellness” advocacy channels today stems exponentially from so called “influencer” aspirations within Social Media. With however varying evidences of “credentials” or certifications. It is to be acknowledged that questions may brew over how “far” or on what “basis of credibility” amongst the “dietary advices”, “fitness routines”, “suggestions” and/or “meal plans” prescribed ~ towards the lay or general members of public.

Their intents, as what This Author sincerely acknowledge ~ nevertheless stands on their own, towards sociological benevolence. “Inspiring” and thus “Influencing” viewers and individuals to take helm and ownership ~ of Scientific Self-Enquiring. Be it for “wellness” or for “self-improvement”. 

This Concept Initiative and its parent manuscript (Nutritional-Humility.me) remains indifferent. If yet ~ focuses less on quantified Narcissicsm. However, it is nonetheless never immune from Credibility Criticism.

Credibility Criticism ensues such that readers or viewers may question the “authority” or “validity” behind This Author (AW™) limited credentials.  For example, prescribing “weekly humility budget shopping plans”, “Cyclical ketogenic principle + intermittent fasting”,  explaining the concept philosophy of “Self-Enquiry“, and/or thorough sharing of personal N=1 account as  “Expired Foods Guide & Experiences”

Hence, in response to the above scrutiny amongst discerning peers  ~ This Author (AW™) decidedly present his “Rationale/s” at addressing these concerns and disclose his counter-responses . 

1.2 The Rationale 1/2 ~ “Honesty” surrender &  Scientific Consolation.

This Author (AW™), were him being questioned or  handed over to the Scientific “Authoritarian” bodies ~ nonetheless willingly “surrender” for “honesty”. Likewise, he’d immediately surrender to “others” more affluent academic supremacy. Especially should any Scientific mechanics overwhelm reasonable comprehension. 

However all “good” intents remained firmly in both mind and body as simply just that ~ an authentic, benevolent “intent”. For providing Scientific Consolation / Contemplations. That is ~ to open and facilitate ongoing dialogue/s over the many turbulences amidst these two (2) overarching themes for concern: 

  1. Involuntary Structural Violence involuntary frugality and/or sanctioned impositions. Be it out of state welfare subsistence, alongside their psycho-social and biological ~ effects. Alongside descends towards collectivised stigma and prejudices. “Involuntary” – meaning without one’s consent nor “will”.  And;
  2. Addressing unintended “effects”, or the various dubious outcomes ~ from persisting amidst constricted Scientific Authoritarianism. As exemplified within our “established”  medical dogmatism and/or collectivised paternalism. Eg. the “status quo”, or the increasingly vague “Everything-In-Moderation” ~ virtuosity Gospel.

The most significant “Rationale” behind this Concept Initiative’s sole existence; were it be questioned ~ is arguably governed by the very first (#1) theme of concern. The cascading psychosocial and physiological declines prompts worsening frugality. Alongside tempts ~ to tinker with scientific unorthodoxies for survival. Meanwhile, the stigmas surrounding enforced welfare institutionalisation/s ~ only exacerbates this violence; structured not from one’s own “decision”. But rather ~ framed by outside collectivism. As stigma brews from every unsuccessful job applications or career diversification attempts. 

Further barrier to this hardship, is the  appealing to academic or credentials “Authority”. By however “limited” indemnity of This Author (AW™) ~ this is pragmatically (IN)accessible; for laterally advancing  Scientific knowledge frontier. Especially if academia opportunities themselves remains further structured and/or barred in their accessibility.

What This Author (AW™) presents as counter argument against such widespread Credibility Criticism is never as that of “questioning” ~ the “correctness” behind any  “mechanics” or teaching(s)  of Biochemistry, Physics, or Mathematics (to name a few). But instead aimed at the manipulations on such “accessibility” and/or “structuring” ~ the “delivery” of Academia altogether. Thus prohibiting the very much needed Scientific enquiring in the first place. 

1.3 The Rationale 2/2 ~ Scientific Individualism is prohibited. Yet, Scientific Communism prevails.

This Author (AW™) wagers that we’ve established ourselves a notion of institutionalised “comfort”. By not challenging the status quo. For every “controversial” hypothesis, is likely met with attacks directly aimed at that person’s Credibility / ad hominem. Whilst discarding the scientific value, validity and/or integrity ~ of the argument/hypothesis itself.

This Author (AW™) presents his second and last rationale as “Cyclical Irony”. Whoever is keen to “learn more” about the “nuances” of Nutritional Science ~ will likely not be persuaded, by anything one already knew ~ by the above Institutionalised template of “comfort”, over and over again. Practitioners know this deep down, that “health” is an individual journey. Bound to collide persistently again to that “there is no one size fits all” admission. 

Yet ~ “challenging” the “unchallenged” comfort, requires controversy. And that ~ essentially encapsulates the entirety of This Author’s own hardship. He is unable to contribute to scientific liberty out of Authenticity. Simply due to lack of “leverages”.  Authority powers-that-be on the other hand ~ ably structures these course of events. By preserving “Credibility” halo. Rather than embracing progressivity

Thus, as daringly one may say ~ we are, unadmittedly condoning Scientific Communism. Centralised Objectivity, sans Subjectivity. 

1.4 All due Academia “respects”; however remains to be respected.

“Credibility” ~ nevertheless remains an honourably essential attribute measuring an individual’s career or professional ~ dignity. This Author (AW™) no doubt admits that Academia abuses and/or exploitations remains a serious turbulence amongst academics and scientific community at large. 

There is immense value, indeed ~ from undertaking further education. Provided  the financial leverage, and the opportunities afterwards seem pragmatic ~ This Author (AW™) alone shall continue further studying. Gauging the “future” however much depends on survival of the very moment, handout-to-handout. Compromise after compromise.  

Therefore, it is perhaps much better to anticipate the worst in all outcomes. No “one individual” ~ no matter how “decorated” in his or her professional titles or academia prefixes ~ are immune from such on-going, Credibility Criticism. Especially amidst brewing clientele expectations asking for  “universal go-to-source” prescription, “silver-bullet”, or  “one-size-fits-all” ~ virtuosity Gospel. This likely compels anyone resorting to whatever “legal” indemnity(s) available both anyway or anyhow. 

This Author (AW™) is aware of this impending inevitability, and that despite limited credentials ~ nevertheless remains readily disclosing all limitations behind all “suggestions”, “plans” or nutritional “advice” anywhere that this Concept Initiative suggests. 

Likewise This Author (AW™) never condones academia plagiarism. A sharing of any scientific concept, explanation, diagram, hypothesis, or finding ~ should never go without proper referencing, and/or attribution.

The above pledge is clearly evident and maintained. Through inline referencing and given the extensive bibliography as featured within all written manuscripts.
