Inner Technology

There is an outer technology of machinery and equipment which has made human life a little more comfortable. A lot of time, money and energy continues to be invested in inventing and perfecting more and more instruments for the future use of mankind. Development has been stupendous and science has come a long way from Mendel’s laws of inheritance to gene mapping and manipulation.

But is that all? Is this the only possible direction of development? There seems to be an assumption that the human body and its laws are fixed and unalterable, except through external manipulation. But the pressure of evolution is not yet over. Man is not the last word of Nature. An excessive reliance on gadgets and machinery to support the human body in distress may work against the evolutionary force through inhibition of the body’s own powers to heal.

For there is a healing force within. And there is a technology woven into the inner fabric of our bodies. We must wake up and use this inner technology, if we are to master life and conquer death.

Great wonders have been achieved by the technology devised by man. Greater wonders await us by mastering the technology concealed in man.
