Introduction: Belief in America
Ethics in government and abroad accept continued been foreground and centermost in American backroom and business. This is not because of a adherence to belief by accessible officials, the accepted association or others, but rather due to assiduous transgressions of ethical norms, generally of a arrant nature.
Dubious behaviors inconsistent with the accessible absorption accept run amok from the ancient canicule of the Republic, during the nation’s average years (e.g., the Gilded Age), throughout the 20th aeon and now, conceivably added than ever, in the still-brief era of the active Donald Trump, America’s aboriginal Ripley’s “Believe It Or Not” president. In beneath than bisected a year in office, The Donald has aboveboard acclimated his top appointment to advance hotels, golf resorts and added claimed interests.
Should we be concerned? Of course.
A “what if” catechism accompanying to the advance of alive mindsets and lifestyles ability be asked at this point.
Suppose I had a REAL wellness belief laboratory, say in Transylvania, the acreage abounding still accessory with bloodthirsty vampires and bawl wolves area Dr. Frankenstein already did analysis on rejuvenation. Suppose I adherent every moment I could abduct from exercising, dining on vegan treats, apperception and accomplishing yoga (next to none) and contrarily advancement balance, active in the moment, experiencing WOs and DBRU equivalents and autograph about safe, non-controversial topics. If I had a lab and spent time there accomplishing academician research, for instance, what ability I ascertain about belief and REAL wellness?
I accept no idea. I don’t accept a lab and accept never been to Transylvania, admitting I accept it’s a admirable arena in the axial allotment of Romania.
Perhaps I could ascertain the ambiguous capacity for a amazing new medication, a advance REAL wellness brain-changing, non-fattening, non-addictive supplement. I took a allure chic in top academy – maybe I could administer what I bethink about the backdrop of matter, how and why substances amalgamate or abstracted to anatomy added substances and apprentice means to put such energies to acceptable use in affairs choices. Brainstorm a abracadabra wellness bullet, a cool wellness bolus composed of actinic substances that approach just the appropriate impulses in the animal brain.
What anatomy ability it take? How about a pill, alone one per anniversary needed, that would abet impulses that addition reason, exuberance, athleticism and liberty. I’d like to see it appear with instructions. For example, the user ability be apprenticed to recite aloud a trance-like mantra, conceivably an Ingersollian affirmation I’d create, something like this:
“I am too alive to decay time on superstitions or Bronze Age rituals, or to bow or blench afore make-belief wizards or gods, alive my actuality is so actual abrupt in this attenuated blind amid the algid and arid peaks of two eternities.”
Like a abracadabra spell, the account would set in motion actinic processes in the frontal, parietal, occipital and the banausic lobes of the bookish cortex. Electro signals in the glia beef would collaborate with hormones, thereby agreeable the 5 senses to acceptable effect. I’m starting to anticipate this ability work.
What could go wrong?
Consequences of a REAL Wellness Pill
Remember, the purpose of the new med would be to abet a wellness lifestyle, guided by the best belief and noblest ethics! Who would affairs these belief and ethics? Well, hell, I’d be accommodating to accord it a shot.
Is there annihilation to be anxious about should my analysis pan out? I apprehend about that the Devil lurks in the details. Maybe one aphotic and bitter night, if lightning bolts are arresting all about the REAL wellness lab I set up in Transylvania, a botheration ability appear with the cool pill. For example, conceivably one adventitious aftereffect ability action due to non-compliance with the admonition for use.
Could adverse things appear if bolus takers do not behave in means constant with REAL wellness belief or behaviors? What if users appoint in smoking, boundless booze burning or voting Republican? I’m anxious that all address of bad habits (eating clutter food, demography oneself too seriously, cerebration some god does favors for some and not others or loves you added than anybody else, declining to breeding a basal faculty of amusement or attending on the ablaze ancillary of activity – these and added worseness tendencies could baffle with the actinic processes in the academician activated by the REAL wellness pill. Receptor sites in the academician acclimatized to getting angry by absolute initiatives could, with bad behaviors, cease accomplishment vaccines that adapt neuron signaling in the basis accumbens. Immunity ability be absent adjoin self-pity, acrimonious and peevish reactions and tendencies to whine, wallow and whimper. Dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine agent systems abounding with academician receptors ability no best bind with Ingersollian affirmations.
While a lot of who yield my wellness bolus would wish to affirm and act aloft the wonders of the concept, some ability abatement off the accepted wellness wagon. Alas, there could be torments and tribulations to pay for such transgressions.
Ethical Concerns and Questions
What do you think? Would you wish such a bolus accessible to just anyone, no questions asked, no accomplishment required? Should an simple way to wellness be enabled, or beat for ethical reasons?
I accept not technically or contrarily apparent such a pill. My affairs of accomplishing so are not great. I don’t accept a lab and I didn’t do so able-bodied in my top academy allure class, in fact, I switched afterwards a few weeks into a P.E. course. Today I just address essays for Ezine.
For these and a few added reasons, I anticipate it ability be best to plan out the belief first, just to be on safe ground, should I anytime go down this alley and succeed.
But, brainstorm for a moment that there ability anytime be such a bolus (Wellagra?) and that the maker would wish to action it to any and all seekers – with no charge for a prescription, the absolution of clergy or added safeguards. Would you try it?
The after-effects of such a best and others that may appear about in the abreast approaching are far reaching.
Be able-bodied – and let me apperceive what you think.
