Words are abstractions, allegorical conveyances of perspective if you will. They can be twisted, redefined and otherwise used against the unsuspecting. Institutions that exact the greatest toll on our lives and wellness are all based on words. The legal and medical systems are notable in this regard.
Legal is a synonym for fiction, in contrast to Natural Law. The former has reduced language to a devious chimera, while the latter is congruent with rational observation. Legal should never be mistaken for lawful. So what about medicine? It’s the same word game in a white coat. The diagnosis has become the pinnacle of medical achievement. To name and to know are two separate matters, however.
If the diagnosis led to supportive measures that comprehensively addressed cause I’d be all in. Unfortunately, the labeling process often impedes resolution, and becomes a self-fulfilling nightmare at worst. During my early medical training I was taken aback by the high percentage of pathology classified as unknown etiology. This, of course, is a euphemism for “we don’t have a clue what causes this stuff”. In the meantime, victims of disease send proceeds from walk-a-thons, and bake sales to help fund multi-billion dollar, for-profit corporations in their deliberately futile search for the cure.
Voodoo is a documented phenomenon, and we’ve all heard stories of how believers succumb to its workings. Here in the civilized world medical experts have been exalted to a similar deity status. We have all witnessed healthy, symptom-free people die within weeks after a disease was discovered during a routine annual exam. Practitioner intent aside, the two methodologies produce a very similar outcome.
The cat is out of the bag, however. Disease is not at all what we think it is, and the proof is in. When the mechanisms underlying signs and symptoms are understood the breadcrumbs become exceedingly easy to follow. I would highly recommend reading my recent article CANCER IS JUST A WORD, and other accompanying posts on Steemit.com and AlfaVedic.com. Those are the very first in a series to receive much elaboration in the near future.
We have all been witness to a severe and rapid cultural decline in our world. Education rewards word recognition skills to derive the right answer at the expense of critical thought. This is nothing short of dog training, and the only remaining question is cui bono? Real science and the path to knowledge has been well hidden in a maze of words, but all of that is about to change.
