This is just my own observations and pondering. I was thinking about the way the body's immune system
is under a constant barage from our surroundings and internal problems like cancer, and if you look at HIV sufferers
before the very strong drugs were developed were prone to bizarre cancers and illnesses you would not normally see,
and it seems to me that the body exists in a world where things are prone to go wrong and it is liable to break down.
The body has many systems including different aspects of the immunity at a cellular level and physiological ways to deal with illness at
every level ; it's designed to live in what we call an "imperfect world".
What I am saying may seem like stating the obvious, but we were bought up to believe the body started out perfect and through sin fell a notch
down from perfection. What I say is everything about the human body is designed to live in this world, and it's amazing that usually it does so well for
the 80 - 90 years we now get.
What I am talking about as an ex-cult member is a paradigm shift from a perfect body which has become imperfect to a human body with very complex systems for surviving whatever occurs within or to it and it is constantly under such threat.
Am I making any sense?
