Medicine does good (we will analyze below how much good). But it is also prone to lying. And not telling the whole truth is equivalent to lying. Most of the times when a new super-expensive drug is promoted in the market (what a word to use for human souls…), the most important element of information is buried somewhere deep inside tones of celebrating comments, that most of the times goes unnoticed.
What would you think of a survival rate of 54%? (3)
What would you think of a possibility of 62.7% to get sick again? (4)
What would you think of a cure that works on SOME patients? (5)
What would you think of a vaccine that could make you SICKER? (6)
What would you think if I told you that those who get vaccinated are the starting points of new disease epidemics outbreaks? (7)
What would you think if I told you that doctors choose to give more medicines even to people who are NOT ill? (8)
Modern medicine is now part of the system. It does not care for life, as much as it cares for money. It is really amazing that even though alternative medicine can have the same or even better cure percentages (see 9, 10) the medical society is very reluctant on even discussing its usefulness. As far as the modern doctors are concerned, human is just a machine with can be “fixed”.
But how can medicine promote life if it thinks that way? It is really amazing that we value so much life, without even knowing what death is. Actually without even knowing what life is! (11) We need more philosophy! (Harmonia Philosophica Main Thesis) Most people prefer health from illness, life from death. But when was the last time the majority found out the answer to any great philosophical question? Shestov asks cleverly…
The most important thing we must keep in mind is that: Medicine DOES NOT SAVE ANYONE! We all die eventually. Life is a contagious disease, with 100% mortality rate! We cannot escape the inevitable. What we seek, is better life conditions! (12) And to that, modern western medicine has little to offer. Maybe that is why western doctors choose to do NOTHING when they are diagnosed with terminal illnesses. (13)
As Rilke said and as Harmonia Philosophica also says, “The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things”!
