For you and me, the body poses problems that will only grow worse. As children we loved our bodies and rarely thought about them. As we grew older, though, we soon fell out of love, and with good reason. Billions of dollars are spent to cure the body of its many ills and miseries. Billions more are thrown down the drain for cosmetics, whose purpose is to fool us into thinking we look better than we do. To be blunt, the human body is unsatisfactory and has been for a long time. It can’t be trusted, since sickness often strikes without warning. It deteriorates over time and eventually dies. Let’s attack this problem seriously. Instead of making do with the physical form you were given at birth, why not look for a breakthrough, a completely new way of approaching the body?
Breakthroughs occur when you start thinking about a problem in a fresh new way. The biggest breakthroughs occur when you start thinking in an unbounded way. Take your eyes away from what you see in the mirror. If you came from Mars and have never seen how the body ages and declines over time, you might believe it would work in just the opposite way. From a biological point of view, there’s no reason why the body should be flawed. So start there. Having erased every outworn assumption from your mind, you are now free to entertain some breakthrough ideas that totally change the situation:
Your body is boundless. It is channeling the energy, creativity, and intelligence of the entire universe.
At this moment, the universe is listening through your ears, seeing through your eyes, experiencing through your brain.
Your purpose for being here is to allow the universe to evolve.
None of this is outlandish. The human body is already the universe’s most advanced laboratory experiment. You and I are at the cutting edge of life. Our best chance for survival is to embrace that
