Life Is Sublime

About: Watch Michael J Fox on You Tube


The mechanical processes of the universe are complex and amazing.  These processes make stars out of cosmic dust, collect planets, gather atmospheres and create zillions of diverse and unique environments.  Yet, over time, these run down, and  become progressively chaotic, there is no coherent order. 

Enter Life into the picture.  Whatever you can say about the force which has thrust Life into the universe, you certainly must respect it as an ordering principal.  Life is sublime.  It is us.  We are it.  And our consciousness, that social awareness, however yet flawed,  sits on the pinnacle of Life and makes possible even this message in the evolved  language of our culture that you are reading right now. 

Enter sperm into egg.  Then the Living cell divides in two.  Each new cell then contains the potential to make every organ of a person.  These cells are called "stem cells".   They are quite unique and fascinating, you could even say miraculous.  If you damage one of the cells, the remainder go on to grow a healthy individual.  How wonderful is that?    At some point, however, every cell looses that miraculous ability to become every organ of a person.  They all become too specialized, too particular.  So that when, later in life, we get injured the adjoining cells can no longer repair the damage.  Me, i view that loss of ability to heal as a deficiency in Life itself.  But certainly, that our bodies cannot naturally heal certain injuries and diseases, is a cause of much tragedy where Lives are cut short or people become paralyzed like Christopher Reeve or spasmodically jerk around like Michael J Fox. 

Enter science into the picture.  Science is learning about the miraculous ability of stem cells to regrow every organ of the body.  There is hope that this study will lead to our ability to heal some injuries and diseases where the bodies natural ability to heal is prevented because cells have lost their miraculous ability.  When this research succeeds many injuries and diseases which tragically cut short young Lives or trap people in dysfunctional bodies will be curable. 

Enter stupidity into the picture.  President Bush vetoed H.R.810 which supported research that utilizes human embryonic stem cells in persuit of a healing process.  This executive action, supported by republican Senator Jim Talent who is running for reelection, works against the ability of Life to heal itself.   I call for everyone in Missouri to vote against Jim Talent.

On the Beyond Tomorrow Science Channel program viewed here yesterday they showed that brain implants were able to stop the shaking symptoms of Parkinson's disease. While intrusive, these seemed about as intrusive as heart implants for regulating the rhythm of heartbeats with pacemakers.
OTOH, the recent success in transforming human skin cells into stem cells seems to trash the notion that scientists needs embryos to do the job. The prognosis for curing sickle cell anemia seems promising as well as other diseases see the picture.
Quoting Rush:
source: ... But once again, there was stony silence from the left. There are no actors making commercials. No talk of this breakthrough on the campaign trail. Why not? Because not only do these developments reaffirm President Bush
