"In the future, we won't degenerate, we'll regenerate"
If you think the body can't or won't regenerate a limb, (or heal a cavity, or make a bald head full of hair) then you're not noticing how miraculous the body already is.
Your body literally builds a feeling, thinking being that can dance, ride a bike, play a violin, compose a symphony... out of an egg and a sperm. This is, of course, TOTALLY AWESOME, and to see it any other way is really to not see it at all.
And if life can do the impossible once, then why not again?
We might say, "Well its the DNA that directs that", but that's just a description. And in fact, all we have is descriptions. We don't actually know how DNA works. We don't actually know how anything works! How does gravity work? Who knows! I certainly don't! Maybe someone can describe it mathematically, but that's just another description - made of mathematical symbols instead of words. When it comes down to it, no one actually KNOWS how gravity really operates to make an apple fall towards the earth.
And descriptions might be all science is. Understandings that give us the ability to quantify and even predict things...they are very useful - but real knowing is a different thing altogether.
Real knowing can be experienced within as an insight, or as a revelation of understanding.
For now, yes, we assume that the body can't regenerate a limb. But that doesn't it never will, under the right conditions.
At one time, man couldn't fly. And everyone knew that man couldn't fly. But then we created the right conditions and now we fly hundreds of people halfway across the planet at hundreds of miles an hour.
At one time, many people died of simple infections - it was unstoppable. Then we discovered antibiotics.
Even just twenty years ago, we 'knew' that the brain does not regenerate it's cells. Now we know it does so constantly and even has a great capacity for regeneration and flexibility (called 'neuro-plasticity' and 'neuro-genesis').
If we pay attention to scientific discoveries, we see that the impossible becomes possible at a fairly constant rate - and according to many, this is speeding up.
My informed prediction is that, especially as we learn to make better use of energetic medicines, and right eating, we will regenerate as fast as we degenerate, and the result will be a much greater life-span and even greatly improved quality of life during those many years. And we'll be very happy to live a long time - we'll be very healthy.
I'm talking 100's of years.
But the GREAT news is that these things are here now, so you don't have to wait! You can now learn to eat according to your body's precise needs, and you can use energetic medicines like homeopathy and flower essences, and as you do you will not only be raising your health potential and extending your life, but also leading our world into the future.
