Dam you Iron, I now blame you for my lack of energy?!
So true what you write, MS is an affliction of the immune system no doubt as many Scotch who seem to have a higher prevalence of it can votch for. I to have it n the family with the older bro. We believe that it is a genetic flaw that has been handed down because of forefathers and ancestors in our stagnant gene pool tbh. We have discussed and laughed over some whisky (when I drank it) the fact that are forefathers must have hid in caves or dodged the frontline too much!! lol
In a viking story recorded in the dark ages supposedly they had an illness that caused limbs to sleep, they sang of it and left the warriors out to sleep in the snow over night, thus killing the potential gene from procreating. There own form of nugenics it seems.
Must point out, I don't mean over 1 life span to arradicate auto immune and illness, I am talking of instilling in human beings the fact that damage now to the genetics in this life is damage for the future generations over thosands of generations? I am doing my Asimov foundations experiment!
Which can take the next million years passing down to future generations the technigue of strengthening your genes from complete destruction. Currently readng LRHubbards Dianetics lol.....you never know what the future holds. I read somewhere, " If you are ill today it is because of what you did in the past, to be well in the future change your present, so your future does'nt repeat the past!". (Some monk book....ahhh Deli Lama)
I'm sure I'm wrong no doubt, but I think of the positivity it gives my kids to eat right and handle things we take for granted with care....like alchohol and drugs etc.
Conan sat on the crown of Aquilonia because he did'nt dodge hard work, but his past strengthened him for the future. REH left us many gifts, just need to read between the lines Cromrades.
