When I began my apprenticeship at the University College Hospital, I witnessed a longstanding problem of biology and medicine firsthand. The deadly spread of cancer and other severe manifestations of diseases have remained incurable despite the fact that the disappearance of such manifestations has occurred since ancient times in rare cases that are referred to as spontaneous remissions because their cause has remained unknown.
As a child, I was fascinated when I found that the explanations to which thought experiments led the theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein, were able to solve problems of astronomy which were beyond the capacity of those famous explanations in "The Principia" to which experiments conducted outside the mind by astronomers led their colleague, Sir Isaac Newton. And it was clear to me that we must turn to the laboratory of the mind where there are no limitations whenever experiments conducted outside the mind are unable to lead us to the solution of longstanding problems of science.
Recently, the first experiment I conducted in the laboratory of the mind yielded results that give us the hope of overcoming the greatest obstacle to cure, the resistance of entities such as cancer cells and germs to treatments which are administered with the noble goal of eliminating them.
These results show that the mechanisms that bring about the disappearance of such manifestations in rare cases of spontaneous remission are tolerance mechanisms which reduce disease severity through effects that do not require the elimination of such entities. And these results have pointed us in the direction of what we must do to understand how these mechanisms bring about the disappearance of incurable manifestations through effects that do not eliminate cancer cells, germs etc.
And this is the goal of my first project here - the description of the conditions that permit tolerance mechanisms to bring about spontaneous remission in rare cases.
