Sthira posted a topic in ChitchatMy high school gymnastics coach got cancer. He recovered quickly, then told us repeatedly about the power of his mind in defeating the cancer. He said he would focus his imagination on killer t-cells (or whatever) attacking and killing the cancer cells one by one then dragging them out of the blood stream. He excreted his cancer first in his mind. Yeah, yeah, I hear scientism supremacy jargon coming up next. But we know the power of placebo. I have a torn ACL and meniscus damage from a dance fall. It's plagued me. Made me suffer. You have your own problems, we all do. I do drugs to perform, to keep down the stupid inevitable effusion. Orthopedic science has been sciencing us for years with breathless jargon about how their repair-magic is just around the corner, healing white zone (avascular) meniscal tears la-dee-da is immanent, exlaimation point, with upcoming scaffolds 3-d printed, exclamation point, and seated with stem cells to treat millions of people suffering from pain and instability which ultimately wrecks lives. We've been waiting for years, of course, and the crickets how I love their lonely chirping. They're a sign of good luck, we're told. Meanwhile, what if we created virtual reality programs to help us visualize the healing of whatever is broken inside you and me. We're told now that many of medical sciences' claims are fraudulent, capitalism-driven, repairing damage or treating, say, depression is no better than placebo. Headache? No idea how aspirin works. So since it's much about placebo anyway (drugs, surgeries, patch jobs) why not clarify placebo, strengthen it with virtual reality? Back to my gymnastics coach: put on virtual reality some program targeted at your internal healing of misery, visualize it, work with placebo in more intense and accurate realm of self regeneration? We should start a company. What if we created virtual reality representations of what it looks like (approximations) of the healing and repair of broken human bodies? While we await Calico's miracles, of course.
