Why Physicians Should Speak Up About the State of Medical Science

Updated: Jan 17

  1. Physicians spend years studying the human body and its processes so we can help patients. We have a fundamental personal and professional interest in understanding what the human body is made of and how that applies to health, disease, diagnosis, treatment, and healing.

  2. Our patients depend on us to investigate, understand, and integrate scientific knowledge into medical science and clinical practice.

  3. The understanding of the body as primarily an atomic and sub-atomic structure is incomplete and outdated.

  4. The current consensus in physics is that matter (including the human body) is fundamentally made of fields. Protons, neutrons, and electrons are derived from fields.

  5. Many physicists have speculated further about what exactly fields are, including information and mind.

What are the implications of understanding the human body is...

  • made of atoms?

  • made of fields?

  • made of information?

  • made of mind?

The potential answers to these questions signal an entirely new way of seeing diagnosis and treatment. Physicians should be among those at the forefront of exploring and communicating this.
