Note From the Medical Conference…

Posted in art, medicine, quotes with tags , , on March 5, 2011 by shewalkssoftly

I’m spending this weekend at an intensive Integrative Medicine conference. I can’t begin to describe how fascinating and wonderful it has been.

I’m trying not to get discouraged by what modern medicine has become; to believe that it is indeed possible to treat patients as whole human beings, medically, naturally, emotionally and spiritually. I plan to be an active participant in this paradigm shift we so desperately need.

When I begin to doubt my potential impact on the juggernaut of the medical industry, I like to remember this quote:

“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

Howard Zinn

Asimov on Art and Science

Posted in art, geek, quotes, science with tags , , , on January 28, 2011 by shewalkssoftly

I must thank Bioephemera for reminding me of this fantastic quote from Asimov concerning the relationship of art and science.

How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers.

My sentiments exactly.

I am a happy inhabitant of the Wonder dimension; realm of the undivided mind.
