Medicine

Medicine is broken. (1)

We also have “too much medicine.” (2)

I believe that the practice of medicine can only be mastered by the appropriate mixture of art and science. (3) The same principle can also be applied to our own understanding of drugs (i.e., pharmacology). (4)

Science is also broken “Science is not communal. Science is not universal. Science is not disinterested.” (5)

By the end, science will probably be “something only a little short of a trans-national, trans-generational meta-mind.” (6)

(of course I might be wrong)*

    Science is also dynamic. Its findings are subject to adjustments and must be taken with a grain of salt, as it were.

      Agreed, science is dynamic.
