"Depart hence, and go into Judaea" - Artificial Robotized Men after the Mankind



Mt. Fuji (3,776 m), 100 km Far from around Tokyo


Artificial Robotized Men after the Mankind 

Viruses invade human cells to multiply themselves there and get out of the cells, destroying them.

However, cells do not have a mechanism in them to attack and destroy viruses.  Cells have evolved by taking some external microbes, such as mitochondria, into them.  DNAs in a human cell include some parts originated in such microbes.  So, there is a mechanism for some microbes to enter into cells.  But, the mankind may introduce another mechanism in cells to attack and destroy viruses.

DNAs have the function to create various types of proteins.  Usually, such proteins give features to a cell needed to form a certain organ, such as a heart and a skin, in the body.  But proteins harmful to viruses may be able to be built based on certain DNAs.  If such DNAs are introduced as genes, a man will have an effective means to fight against viruses.

Advanced gene engineering might be able to create a special gene on DNAs that will create proteins to attack and destroy viruses that invaded a cell.  But it will be difficult to assure that such proteins do not have any other negative effects on human cells.

Like this example, the mankind will probably have the ability to create any desired genes on DNAs.  But, the nature is more complex than the mankind think them to be.  There must be more hidden adverse effects if the mankind become able to handle and work on cells and genes.  The balance in the human body established through biological evolution for billions of years should not be easily changed for biological safety.

In long future, the mankind will give up application of gene engineering and adopt artificial robotized bodies that can be almost completely controlled by the mankind themselves.  In this case, the last problem is the brain.  It is said that life-span of human cells is 125 years, which means that human being cannot live longer than 125 years.  So, the brain of a robotized man with natural human cells cannot live longer than 125 years.  Therefore, ultimately, the mankind will create an artificial brain with artificial brain cells and nerves to acquire semipermanent life.

But when the mankind crate such artificial brains, if they do not have sincere faith and a sound sense of ethics and religion, they will not try to implant respect to the God in the artificial brains.  If so, the artificial men will leave the spiritual tradition of the natural mankind.  They cannot regarded as members of the mankind anymore.  Whether this transition from natural men to artificial men is slow or rapid, the earth will be eventually ruled by artificial men that are different species from natural homo sapiens.

For example, 2,000 years later, a history book for artificial men might read: mortal human beings all died out due to special viruses in the 21st century but artificial robots, which they called us, took over the world through technological evolution for 2,000 years.

As artificial men, namely robots, do not die, they will not need religion, the concept of the God, and even the spiritual world.  However, there is no assurance that artificial men love peace and prosperity more than homo sapiens.  They may destroy the world with themselves as it is unthinkable that robots will be afraid of death and they will respect the God that did not create them.

The meaning of the word of Christ Jesus that those who believe in Him will gain eternal life (even if killed by viruses) should be reviewed in this context.

John 7 King James Version (KJV)
3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

"For with what judgment ye judge" - Oxygen and Water for Free in Addition to Faith




Around Tokyo Bay

 Oxygen and Water for Free in Addition to Faith

Without breathing, a man will die in about three minutes.  Without water, a man will die in about three days.  Without foods, a man will die in about three weeks even if he can take water.

By breathing, oxygen is provided to mitochondria in cells for energy production.  Since there are about 50 trillion cells in the body and each cell has about 300 to 400 mitochondria, on average, and the total weight of mitochondria accounts for 10% of the weight of the human body.  Therefore, without oxygen, a man will die in about three minutes, since the human body is sustained by energy produced in mitochondria.

So, if mitochondria cannot produce energy for three minutes due to lack of oxygen to be conveyed through bloods, cells in the body die and thus the body die.  Cells and mitochondria are so fine and thin.  The three minutes without oxygen are enough to kill them.

Water in the body accounts for 60%, on average, of the body weight.  A man needs about 2,500 ml of water a day for various functions in the body.  So, without taking water, cells die in three days, and accordingly the human body die.

Foods are consumed to be changed to glucose, etc. to be used in energy production in the glycolytic system and further in mitochondria.

Then, how could Christ Jesus survive and live in the desert for 40 days?

Christ Jesus said: It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

So, it is thought that words of the God turned to nutrient elements (foods or bread) in the body of Christ Jesus.  However, Satan waited for 40 days for Christ Jesus to die.  But as He survived due to oxygen, water, and nutrient elements, to which words of the God turned, Satan came to appear before Christ Jesus to cause death to Him by itself.

But, as the Bible describes, Satan failed in its evil plan.  So, it changed its plan and decided to use one of disciples of Christ Jesus as a fatal betrayer to Christ Jesus.  In this new plan, Satan used 30 coins of silver.  And, Judas actually betrayed Christ Jesus to cause Crucifixion to Him.  But, Satan also failed as Christ Jesus was resurrected.

Now, in the 21st century, people have been brainwashed by Satan so as to believe that money is more important than foods.  And Satan can use trillions of dollars (for example the world GDP is about 80 trillion dollars).  There can be billions of Judas in the world today.   

Put simply, a man needs oxygen, water, and foods to live and survive.  And, words of the God can turn to foods to save believers.  If a man can get oxygen and water for free, all he needs more is words of the God in addition to faith in Christ Jesus and the God.  Then, a man can live and survive without money.

In this context, our civilization should be established so as to give oxygen and water for free to the mankind in addition to faith in the God.

Matthew 7 King James Version (KJV)
7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

"with unwashen, hands, they found fault" - Walking as Training for Climbing the Highest Mountain




Around the National Diet Building, Tokyo

Walking as Training for Climbing the Highest Mountain

In May 1970, Yuichro Miura in his 30s succeeded in skiing from 8,000 meter-high in Mt. Everest, which was recorded in the movie titled "The Man Who Skied Down Everest," since such an adventure had never been tried. But, he did not reach the summit of Mt. Everest on that occasion.

Then, 30 years later in 2003, Mr. Miura at the age of 70 climbed Mt. Everest again and reached the top.  Subsequently in 2008, Mr. Miura stood on the top of Mt. Everest again.  He became the only one who had reached the top of Mt. Everest twice at one's 70s.  What's more, in 2013 at the age of 80, the Japanese adventurer Miura stood at the top of Mt. Everest as the third time.  He became the oldest man that had ever reached the summit of Mt. Everest. 

(https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-22644717/80-year-old-yuichiro-miura-claims-new-everest-record)

After the success in skiing in Mt. Everest in 1970, Mr. Miura somewhat lived a lifestyle of excess.  But he was awoken from idle living as his son and father were active in hill climbing and skiing.  So, Miura decided to come back to Mt. Everest again at his age of 65.  After five years of preparation and training, he climbed Mt. Everest again and reached its summit at his age of 70.  Afterward, he has also succeeded in standing at the top of Mt. Everest twice.  It is said that Miura is planning the fourth time of reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, although he is now over 85.

The method of training for Miura is simply walking for hours, carrying weights attached to his body.  Miura walks in various streets of Tokyo as his training, although he sometimes climbs mountains in Japan and take bicycle tours around Tokyo.  Miura even wrote a book on how to walk as training.

When Miura first went to Mt. Everest for skiing, his father, who was one of pioneers in modern mountain climbing in Japan, thought that his son would succeed in the adventure at a probability of 30% but might die at 70%.  Indeed, in the skiing from 8,000 meter high of Mt. Everest, Miura almost lost his life as he skied down at the speed of 200 km/h, although with a parachute, while being pulled back irregularly by the parachute, losing the right ski plate, and being forced to jump over a big rock covered by snow and land in and lay down on a plot before a big crevasse.  He really put his life in danger.

Miura wrote that walking only for training is a kind of pain.  But he enjoys walking around Tokyo with weights in a backpack or belts attached around ankles.  Miura loves to see various people and situations in the city while walking for training.  But, he wrote that he could endure such training as he had a purpose to climb up and reach the summit of Mt. Everest.

Anyway, since Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in the world, Miura's efforts and pain in training must be nothing to him.

Like Miura, followers of Christ Jesus must not feel any pain in studying His teaching, since Christ Jesus is the spiritually highest person in the history.  And Christ Jesus might advise them to learn His words as if they were walking.

Mark 7 King James Version (KJV)

Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

"even Solomon in all his glory" - Chi or Life Energy Handled by Qigong Doctors or Christ Jesus




Tokyo

Chi or Life Energy Handled by Qigong Doctors or Christ Jesus 

According to a "qigong" doctor, bad "chi" or defective life energy concentrates around one's legs or space around one's legs.  So, he advises not to stand near legs or around the lower body of a sick man when visiting him in a hospital.  Otherwise, bad life energy or defective vital energy would shift to the visiting person to cause disorder in his/her body or spirit.

Image may contain: text
https://www.facebook.com/chigungromsey/photos/a.282970349195262/299348210890809/?type=3&theater

(Note: Qigong or chi gung is a centuries-old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training.  With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (pronounced approximately as "chi"), translated as "life energy"...
Another 2015 systematic review of the effect of qigong exercises on biomarkers of diabetes mellitus concluded that there was insufficient evidence for effect due to methodological problems with the underlying clinical trials. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qigong])

Apart from medical evidence on effect of qigong, it is meaningful that Christ Jesus washed legs of His followers as a holy memory when the fate of Crucifixion came closer.  It showed that Christ Jesus had given His followers power to conquer bad "chi" or defective life energy of others.  Otherwise, His follower who washed legs of another should receive bad "chi" or defective life energy from the other.

Anyway, Christ Jesus did not use modern medical devices or drugs.  He used His hands or life energy or vital energy by directing it to sick people.  It coincides with a theory of Eastern medicine originated in ancient China that a disease is caused by defective chi or life energy.  This method of handling or adjusting chi or life energy of a sick person for medical treatment is somewhat widely accepted by Chinese, Japanese, and other East Asian people who are not satisfied with modern medication.

But there is a clear distinction between Christ Jesus and chi gung, holiness and divine authority in the act of curing.  A qigong doctor works as a technician.  But Christ Jesus worked as the Son of God.  Technicians must fail sometime, while Christ Jesus never failed.

Our body is made of cells and only cells each of which is alive or active like a living thing.  Therefore it can be killed by viruses like a living thing is.  And every living thing has life energy.  As there are about 50 trillion cells in the human body, the total amount of life energy of all the cells in the human body must be able to be perceived by human feeling or sense.  Some keen and sensible qigong doctors must really feel this energy as we feel life energy when we touch a dog or a cat.  So, chi gung cannot be simply denied.

However, Christ Jesus must have been able to feel, detect, and sense life energy of every one more clearly than chi gung masters.  In other word, chi gung and other techniques of Eastern medicine or Tai Chi are part of holy ability of Christ Jesus.

Christ Jesus directly worked on the human body or life energy of the sick through spiritual paths.  But chi gung and other techniques of Eastern medicine or Tai Chi handle technically life energy.  So sometime they should fail technically.

But the point at issue is that every cell has its life energy.  Modern medical devices and drugs cannot still directly handle life energy of cells.

What is more, Christ Jesus said that those who wanted to live should lose it, but those who would lose it for the sake of Christ Jesus should get eternal life.  This eternal life is not supported by life energy of cells but assured by spiritual energy given by Christ Jesus.

Even if we cannot deny technical effect of chi gung, what we need, while facing death that will come surely someday, is spiritual effect given by Christ Jesus through spiritual healing.  In other words, not all who put a healing hand over the sick are necessarily holy, although some may have real curing power.

Matthew 6 King James Version (KJV)
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

"This is the work of God" - Death Inevitable since 2 Billion Years Ago




 Rice Paddies Around Tokyo

Death Inevitable since 2 Billion Years Ago

The most important words relevant to the current situation is as follows:
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?


We may say: for what is a man advantaged, if he gains the corona-virus, and lose himself, since whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whoever will lose his life for Christ Jesus sake, the same shall save it.

The corona-viruses get into human cells, multiply themselves there, and get out of the cells, destroying the cells.  Indeed, the viruses are like evil spirit sent by Satan.

Evil spirit gets into a human mind, multiply itself there, and get out of the mind, destroying the mind and eventually the man himself.

So then, how should we suppress and destroy the evil spirit?  What are medicines and vaccines against the evil spirit?  Or how would Christ Jesus heal and save people from the evil spirit?

By reading the Bible and believing in the words of Christ Jesus, resistivity against evil spirit will be strengthened.  Power of the words of Christ Jesus would be multiplied in our mind and work to conquer invading evil spirit like a vaccine against viruses.           

By the way, each of our cells has mitochondria that were independent bacteria-like unicellular organism outside our cells.  But, about 2 billion years ago, our cells and mitochondria were unified.  Then our cells boosted their capacity to produce energy as the mitochondria system using oxygen could produce energy 16 times more than that produced by their intrinsic glycolytic system that does not use oxygen.  But as our original cells are of the anaerobic system, it took some time for the unified cell became stable.  And, about a billion years ago, multicellular structure was made possible and evolution of organisms started.

Our cells before unification, which are called procaryotic organisms, with mitochondria were all unicellular cells and did not split.  They could live forever by splitting themselves, although they could be killed by some outer factors.  A cell including mitochondria inside, which is called eukaryotic organism, does not spit forever but undergoes cell division and after certain times of division it stops division, causing aging of our bodies.

In other words, procaryotic organisms chose to take in mitochondria, get more energy sources, enable multicellularity, and further evolve one to two billion year sago, but in exchange accepted aging and natural death due to active oxygen.

Indeed, oxygen to be consumed by mitochondria accounts for 90% of in-haled oxygen.  And the ratio of oxygen that turn to active oxygen through activities of mitochondria is 0.1 to 2%.  This active oxygen harms mitochondria themselves and other elements in a cell, causing cancer and aging.    

Contrary to viruses that invade and destroy our cells for their multiplication, mitochondria integrated into our cells 2 billion years ago when our original cells were procaryotic organisms give energy for our existence but made death of the body inevitable.

Yet, the words of Christ Jesus would invade our minds to give eternal life.  But we have to abandon our desire linked with Satan for integration with the spirit of Christ Jesus.  In this context, we should not be afraid of death of our bodies as it is biologically inevitable since 2 billion years ago.  But, we only have to accept the words of Christ Jesus to get eternal life.  

Mitochondria in your cell

Mitochondria produce energy by turning glucose and oxygen into a chemical called ATP.

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

"when all men shall speak well of you" - This Pandemic in the Historic Context




Tokyo


 This Pandemic in the Historic Context

It is strange that people in the world under the corona-virus pandemic have not yet turned to the God.

It can be easily estimated that new viruses more harmful or double digit or 100 times more deadly  than the current corona-virus would force major cities in the world to be locked out for more than a year, resulting in collapse of global economy and destruction of countries with tens of millions of deaths.  This scale of tragedy cannot be handled and solved by any individuals, politicians, or governments.

But, as a member of the mankind, each of us should be allowed to think of meaning of this pandemic in the historic context.  What is wrong about our civilization?  To see it, we had better focus on a representative index of material civilization: GDP.  The material civilization of the mankind has continued to increase even in the 21st century as the following graph of growth of GDP shows.


This graph does not  show a trend of strengthen faith but expanded desires of the mankind.  To pursue material desires is against the teaching of Christ Jesus and the God.  Rather, it shows success of Satan trying to brainwash men so as to make them love money more than the God. 

After the start of the Christian history with the First Coming of Christ Jesus, namely A.D. 1, this kind of tragedy has occurred several times.  But in each case, people repent somewhat and must have showed enough respect to the God to be exempted from decisive destruction of the society at issue in each case.

The first case must be the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem around A.D. 70 when Jewish people were enjoying great success in survival since Abraham who had come to appear in the history 2,000 years before.  Then the second case must be the destruction of the Roman Empire around the 5th century when the Empire was enjoying the hegemony over then-most civilized areas in the world.

After the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem, some Jewish people started to follow Christ Jesus, which pleased the God who then allowed Jewish people to survive with Christians.  After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Christians in the Empire succeeded in continuing their faith and establishing the Vatican, which satisfied the God who then allowed Europe to be recovered and developed in later centuries.

In the third case, Europeans tried to invade Jerusalem to occupy the holy city by force and violence between the end of the 11th century and the 13th century, which must have made the God angry.  Then, in the 14th century, the Black Death took place, killing more than 100 million people or 22 percent of the then global population.  Europeans repent, and the Renaissance was started, which must have somewhat pleased the God.  Europe was allowed to continue development of its civilization.

In the early 20th century, modernized European countries, Russia, China, and Imperial Japan got into the era of wars and bloody revolutions, which must have alarmed the God.  Then, that historical  1918 Spanish Flu occurred, infecting 500 million people and killing tens of millions of people.  But the United States started to join the global politics while keeping respect to the God as strong as that of the Vatican.  The God must have placed His hope in faith in the U.S.  The mankind was allowed to further survive and develop despite the successive Great Depression and WWII.

But the mankind never ceased to pursue material wealth, which can be seen in the figure showing the trend of global GDP.  In the early 21st century, namely 2000 years after the First Emergence of Christ Jesus, GDP in the world, further expanded with China's economic rise,  has reached the level so high and dangerous even to the earth with so many other species.  So, it is no wonder that the God has decided to destroy the material human civilization.  However, the benevolent God must have decided to first give a warning to the mankind, which must be this coronavirus pandemic.

Put simply, the God must be waiting for the mankind to reach a decisive level of their material civilization so that there would be no excuse for their blasphemy, since such a high level proves that the mankind has sold their souls to Satan to the unforgivable degree.

In this context, the mankind would have to face repetition of the fall of the Temple in Jerusalem around A.D. 70 and the debacle of the Roman Empire around the 5th century.  The end of this material civilization would start around 2070, as predicted by Isaac Newton, and come to a decisive point when the mankind will be exterminated or allowed to survive around 2500.

The future is yet not known.  The God might somewhat tolerate general foolish and evil nature of the human civilization due to strength of faith found in some pious people.  If the mankind repent enough after receiving warnings prior to 2070 or 2500, they may be allowed to further survive and develop to conquer even the Milky Way Galaxy in the 30th or 40th century.

Anyway, it is strange that people don't feel historic graveness in this corona-pandemic in association with the historical trend of GDP, an index symbolizing the strength of material desires of men and the degree of their inclination to the teaching of Satan.

So, we should think that if all the Jewish people and Judaism had been eradicated around A.D. 70 or the Roman Empire had been completely destroyed and uprooted with emerging Christianity around the 5th century, the human being should not be able to build their civilization as we see and enjoy today.  It means that we need more faith than that found in those preceding cases, if we are to survive and develop toward the 30th and 40th century.

"Behold the fowls of the air" - Influences of Autonomous Nerves on Cancers





A Village Shintoism Shrine around Tokyo

Influences of Autonomous Nerves on Cancers

In June last year, Japanese scientists conducted a research on influences of autonomous nerves on cancers.

They found that cancer patients with high density of sympathetic nerves showed a poor prognoses after medical operation.  This result coincides with the fact that chronic stresses accelerate cancer progress.  Indeed, when the body receives stress, it judges that it is in an emergency event, so that autonomous nerves show accommodative disorder leading to cancer progress.

They also found that increase of cancers and distant metastases were suppressed when sympathetic nerves distributed over a cancer tissue were removed.

So, it is clear that nerve systems of the body influence cancers.  Stress such as tobacco, high-salt diets, unhealthy lifestyle, etc. woks on autonomous nerve systems that incidentally work on cells including cancer cells.

However, there are other factors that work on autonomous nerve systems.  When Christ Jesus healed sick people, His love and spiritual power must have also worked on autonomous nerve systems which subsequently carried love and spiritual power of Christ Jesus to cancer cells and other damaged cells to cure them.

Today, there are three major methods to cure cancer: surgical operation, anticancer drug treatment, and radiation therapy.  However, the method adopted by Christ Jesus was to work on autonomous nerves by giving something, opposite to stress, to the body and cells through nerve systems.

Indeed, without poor conditions or unhealthy conditions, cancers do not develop.  So, in some good conditions to cells, cancers should stop emerging and growing.  And, to give favorable stimulus to autonomous nerves of patients is the method adopted by Christ Jesus when healing the sick people.

In this context, medical doctors themselves should have minds that can be tools and medicines to cure the sick.  But it is often nurses that have suitable minds for curing the sick rather than medical doctors.

Finally, if a medical doctor has a mind with love and spiritual power like that of Christ Jesus, he can heal cancer patients and cure cancers without advanced medical devices and medicines. 

This theory should also apply to patients infected by corona viruses.

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

"Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles" - No Nightingale Preceding to 2020





Tokyo

No Nightingale Preceding to 2020

Due to corona-viruses, many people, otherwise health, have experienced the state of being sick.  They must be, if recovered after receiving medical care, thankful to medical doctors and other staff in charge as well as medical science.  However, whom or what should recovered people most appreciate?  Whom or what does the God want recovered people to most appreciate, since the corona-pandemic must not have occurred without God's approval.

Those who are always close to patients are not medical doctors or but clinical nurses.  And it is well known that the one who mostly contributed to professionalising nursing roles for women more than a century ago was Florence Nightingale (1820-1910).

Florence Nightingale  wrote:
In watching diseases, both in private houses and in public hospitals, the thing which strikes the experienced observer most forcibly is this, that the symptoms or the sufferings generally considered to be inevitable and incident to the disease are very often not symptoms of the disease at all, but of something quite different—of the want of fresh air, or of light, or of warmth, or of quiet, or of cleanliness, or of punctuality and care in the administration of diet, of each or of all of these. And this quite as much in private as in hospital nursing. 
The reparative process which Nature has instituted and which we call disease, has been hindered by some want of knowledge or attention, in one or in all of these things, and pain, suffering, or interruption of the whole process sets in. 
If a patient is cold, if a patient is feverish, if a patient is faint, if he is sick after taking food, if he has a bed-sore, it is generally the fault not of the disease, but of the nursing.
http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/12439/pg12439-images.html

This notion seems to have become an underlying principle of modern medication.  And it seems to reflect the spirit of Christ Jesus curing sick people without using the 21st modern medication.

After Nightingale had died, the Spanish Flu was set off (as well as WWI).  And after having killed 20 million to 50 million victims world wide, "by the summer of 1919, the flu pandemic came to an end, as those that were infected either died or developed immunity (https://www.history.com/topics/world-war-i/1918-flu-pandemic#section_13)".

So, those who suffered the Spanish Flu could not receive modern effective medications.  To them, nursing conditions must have been critical.  And, there must have been great contribution from Nightingale to such nursing contributions. 

Nonetheless, in this 2020 corona-virus pandemic, we have had no Nightingale who should have made great contribution to improvement of nursing conditions to corona-virus infected people, while such improvement is highly required as development of vaccines seems to need further months. 

In other words, the God had given Nightingale to the world preceding to the 1918 Spanish Flu, but no Nightingale to the 2020 corona-virus pandemic.  It may be an ill omen.

Christ Jesus healed people based on His love to them.  Nightingale put importance on maternal love in nursing.  So, it is thought that as the material civilization has developed so much as to pay less attention to love to people than to money, the God must have stopped protecting people by preventing the corona-virus pandemic.  No Nightingale preceding to 2020 must be indeed an ill omen.

Nightingale did not discuss economic efficiency in nursing.  But, contemporary elites must not be unable to stop thinking about economic efficiency even in fighting corona-viruses.  In any modern society, medical treatment is expensive.  Drug companies develop medicines for profits rather than from love to people.  It is expected that manufacturers of vaccines for corona viruses will get big profits, although people will appreciate the vaccines.

Indeed, in the vaccine market, corporate integration was recently promoted, so that four major companies now account for 80% of the global vaccine market whose value is about 45 billion dollars.

Anyway, believers must wonder why the God or Christ Jesus has not yet sent their Angels to the human world to save them from the pandemic.  But, if this pandemic is a warning to the mankind for the end of the world, which the God has already decided, it can be understood.

In this context, future people facing the end of the world, say, in the end of the 21st century, must think that their ancestors, namely us, should have repent more in the 2020 corona-virus pandemic.

John 6 King James Version (KJV)
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

"Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy" - Cells, DNA, Genes, and Mind





Tokyo

Cells, DNA, Genes, and Mind

A drosophila (a genus of flies) has 14,700 genes, and an Indian corn has about 45,000 genes.

However, as genome sequence quality and the methods for identifying protein-coding genes improved, the count of recognized protein-coding genes (of a man) dropped to 19,000-20,000. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_genome)

Genes are part of genome or total chromosomal deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) in a cell nucleus.

The total length of the human genome is over 3 billion base pairs. The genome is organized into 22 paired chromosomes, termed autosomes, plus the 23rd pair of sex chromosomes (XX) in the female, and (XY) in the male. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_genome)


(http://igbiologyy.blogspot.com/2014/03/chromosomes-dna-genes-and-alleles.html)

This means that there are many parts of DNA whose work as genes is not identified, although a gene gives information to create a specific type of proteins that builds an organism and eventually the human body.

The point at issue is that it is not thought there is a gene that creates a human mind.  It means that a human mind is not in DNA, any chromosome, or any human cell that is a basic building block of the body, while the human body is solely made of human cells whose number is between 30 to 60 trillion.

Indeed, if a human mind is in genes, a fly or even a corn must have its mind as such a living thing has as many genes as, or more genes than, a human being has.

However, it is apparent that a human mind is in the brain that is created according to some genes or unknown genes in DNA.  So, a human mind is created after the brain is built or while the brain is functioning.  And the function of the brain is to handle information transmitted from various parts of the human body through nerve systems.  This information is in the form of electric signals.  Handling of electric signals produces micro-electromagnetic fields in the brain that cannot be turned off, like a computer that is never powered off, since the birth of a man as long as the man lives.

The brain cells take energy from glucoses and mitochondria.  Glucoses give energy without oxygen (the glycolytic energy system) but mitochondria need oxygen to produce energy (the mitochondria energy system).  Based on this energy, brain cells or nerve cells in the brain handle numerous electric signals 24 hours per day per year as long as a man lives.

So, it is beyond imagination how complicated micro-electromagnetic fields have been created in the human brain.  This degree of complex nature must be the key of emergence of a human mind, since the brain is a kind of computer that is never powered off since the birth of the man.

But after the brain has acquired the necessary degree of complex nature of micro-electromagnetic fields, the soul or spirit must come from the spiritual space, like energy that came from the spiritual space to create this material universe.  And, eventually, a man is established with a human mind supported by his spirit or pneuma.

In this context, with great advancement of science and technology, the mankind might someday create human cells and the brain that functions to create a human mind, but to establish a human being, it must be essential to receive a spirit from the spiritual space.  And, it is dubious that the God will send a spirit to such an artificial brain.  In this sense, the mankind can even create an artificial biological man-like robot without a spirit, but it surely cannot create a human being with a spirit like the God does.

Luke 6 King James Version (KJV)
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

"Herod on his birthday made a supper" - Natural Killer Cells to Kill Viruses




Around the Tokyo Station

Natural Killer Cells to Kill Viruses

There are special cells in human bodies that provide rapid response to virus-infected cells, which are called NK cells (natural killer) cells.  They act around three days after inspection.  As they have the strong ability (cytolytic potential) to destroy other cells and even sound cells, their function is strictly controlled.  NK cells account for 10 to 30% of lymphocyte cells in blood which detect disease germs and tumor cells.

So, if activity of NK cells is strong, a man can be well protected from viruses.  But this protective activity decreases as a man gets older after reaching its peak at around the age of 25.

(https://more.hpplus.jp/odekake/o-matome/43145)

The vertical scale is the cytopathy rate (NK activity), while the horizontal scale is the age.

After birth, NK cells increase their activity to kill virus-infected cells together with viruses till around the age of 25, but they gradually decrease their activity till around 65, and then their activity rapidly falls till the death.

That is why corona-viruses can be a garver threat to old men.

But it is not only by aging that NK cells lose its activity.  NK activity is also decreases when a man is subjected to stress (fear, distress, unhealthy lifestyle, etc.).

However, Christ Jesus seemed to have the ability to enhance the function of natural killer cells.  By directing His love and compassion to sick persons, He could take stress from them and thus make NK cells work fully.

Indeed, the mental status of a man influences work of his immune system in his body.  If a man strongly wishes that he never dies, the probability of man's survival gets larger than when he abandons his life as he is succumbed to stress.

Christ Jesus must have been able to work on the mental status of a sick person with His love, so that He can enhance immunity of the man and activity of his NK cells.

Therefore, it is recommended for a man infected by corona-viruses to think of love and curing power of Christ Jesus, wishing that Christ Jesus would make His Angel use natural killer cells to kill viruses.

Mark 6 King James Version (KJV)
19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

"Father, which seeth in secret" - In the 40th Century BC, the 20th Century BC, the 1st Century, and 2000s




An Early Summer Park around Tokyo

In the 40th Century BC, the 20th Century BC, the 1st Century, and 2000s
As the world is now in the first century of 2000s, it must be useful to review the first century of the first millennium.

AD 1: Lions became extinct in Western Europe.
AD 9 – 23: Wang Mang temporarily overthrew the Han dynasty of China.
AD 14: Augustus Caesar, first emperor of Rome, dies. His adopted son, stepson and son-in-law Tiberius is his successor.
AD 25: The Han dynasty is restored by Liu Xiu who proclaims himself Emperor Guangwu of Han.
AD 28 – 75: Emperor Ming of Han, Buddhism reaches China.
c. AD 29: Jesus begins his ministry (traditional date).
c. AD 33: The Crucifixion of Jesus (traditional date).
c. AD 33 – 36: Conversion of Paul the Apostle.
AD 40 – 43: Revolts erupts in Vietnam by the Trung sisters.
AD 43: Roman conquest of Britain begins. London is founded (although it could have existed centuries before this date).
AD 41 – 54: Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka first write down Buddha's teachings, creating the Pali canon.
The regions of present-day Afghanistan, Pakistan and North India come under the control of the Kushans, a nomadic people forced out of northwest China by the Han Dynasty.
c. AD 50: Christian Council of Jerusalem.
AD 60: Queen Boudica of The Iceni in England launches a rebellion against The Romans. Tens of thousands die and the Roman army is massively damaged. The Rebellion fails and Boadicea commits suicide by poisoning herself. Three major cities are obliterated.
AD 64: Great Fire of Rome, first Roman mass Persecution of Christians, earliest significant recognition of Christians in Rome.
AD 66 – 73: First Jewish-Roman War.
AD 69: Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes in Northern England, is overthrown in a civil war. Her unpopular alliance with Rome, the betrayal of Caratacus and her love for someone other than her husband are the three reasons which led to her demise. The Action enraged the Romans so much that they conquered and annexed The Kingdom.
AD 70: destruction of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans under Titus.
AD 79: Pompeii and Herculaneum destroyed by eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
AD 80: The Colosseum is finished.
Jewish Council of Jamnia.
Spread of the Roman Empire, reaches largest size under Trajan.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_century)

In 2000s, similar events may be expected to happen.  As it was also 2000 years from Abraham's departure of Ur in Mesopotamia to the first appearance of  Christ Jesus, and it had been also 2000 years since the 40th century BC to Abraham.

The 40th century BC:
In Mesopotamia, the Uruk period began; in Europa, the Pit–Comb Ware culture started by those thought to have still mostly followed the Mesolithic hunter-gatherer lifestyle, with traces of early agriculture; in the near East, the Naqada culture started in Egypt; the early Jōmon period with use of clay potteries for cooking began on the islands of Japan; and more than 100 dwellings surrounding a community center, a cemetery and a kiln were built in Jiangzhai, near modern Xi'an, China. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/40th_century_BC)

Now in 2000s:
In America, the 9/11 Terror occurred in New York and Washington D.C.; the financial crisis started from the Wall Street; the first African American President was elected; and the first President from real-estate/entertainment business was elected.

In Europe, the UK decided to leave the EU; the EU accepted many immigrants from the Middle East and Africa; and Russia further pursued militarism.

In China increased its aggressive behaviors to the world while causing trade disputes with the U.S.

In Japan, the great earthquake and a nuclear power plant accident occurred while suffering decade-long deflation.     

And presently in 2020, the whole world is in the corona-virus pandemic.  Isaac Newton predicted that the start toward the end of the world might begin after 2060.  The advanced science of the mankind cannot completely conquer this pandemic or prevent occurrence of this kind of pandemics.  So, the mankind will probably cannot evade the fate predicted by Newton in the early 18th century.

Therefore, it is foreseen that, like in the first century, the Christ Jesus will come around 2030, but He will be rejected by the mankind while some people will repent and change their minds to follow Him and accomplish His mission.  Yet, a great war or WWIII will be erupted and great cities in the world will be destroyed as a consequence around 2070.  And, the mankind will realize that the end of the world has started... 

In this context, the mankind will know that the end of the world has started around 2060.

And in my estimate, it might take further 2000 years till robots or other living things take over completely the world from the mankind.

Matthew 6 King James Version (KJV)
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

"his disciples went down unto the sea" - Corona-Pandemic vs. Cancer




Around the Bank of Japan, Tokyo

Corona-Pandemic vs. Cancer

Cancer seems to be more fatal than virus infection that can be avoided by wearing a mask, keeping social distance, and avoiding congestion, although it is still unknown whether the corona-virus pandemic will result in world-wide deaths of more than 10 million.
In 2015, about 90.5 million people had cancer. About 14.1 million new cases occur a year (not including skin cancer other than melanoma).  It caused about 8.8 million deaths (15.7% of deaths).  The most common types of cancer in males are lung cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and stomach cancer.  In females, the most common types are breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer and cervical cancer.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer#Alternative_medicine)
About 606,880 Americans are expected to die of cancer in
2019 (Table 1), which translates to about 1,660 deaths per
day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in
the US, exceeded only by heart disease.
(https://www.cancer.org/content/dam/cancer-org/research/cancer-facts-and-statistics/annual-cancer-facts-and-figures/2019/cancer-facts-and-figures-2019.pdf)
The methods to cure cancer are chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, palliative care, immunotherapy, laser therapy, and alternative medicine.  But, as cancer cells are originally normal human cells but only with wrong or defective genes, it is difficult to kill only cancer cells without harming other normal human cells.

So, for old men with cancer, it is thought to be good to leave and forget the cancer without taking surgery or anti-cancer drags that damage their bodies and normal cells leading to adverse effects that could be sometimes fatal.

From the beginning, it is thought that taking all cancer cells is impossible, since cancer cells move through blood and attach to other organs to multiply.  According to a report in 2016 of the National Cancer Center of Japan, the total survival rate in 5 years after initial diagnosis of all types of Japanese cancer patients is 62.1%.  It means about 40% of patients cannot live more than 5 years while taking surgery and other medications.

However,  American Cancer Society boasts development of cancer management:
The overall age-adjusted cancer death rate rose during most of the 20th century, peaking in 1991 at 215 cancer deaths per 100,000 people, mainly because of the tobacco epidemic. As of 2016, the rate had dropped to 156 per 100,000 (a decline of 27%) because of reductions in smoking, as well as improvements in early detection and treatment. This decline translates into more than 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths from 1991 to 2016, progress that has been driven by steady declines in death rates for the four most common cancer types – lung, colorectal,
breast, and prostate (Figure 1 and Figure 2).
(https://www.cancer.org/content/dam/cancer-org/research/cancer-facts-and-statistics/annual-cancer-facts-and-figures/2019/cancer-facts-and-figures-2019.pdf)

Nonetheless, it is not clear what medications have contributed to prolonged survival of cancer patients.  Their is a possibility that other factors than diagnosis, surgery,  anti-cancer drags, etc., or improvement of other medical environment and medical care or quality of living has contributed to the increase of survival rate of cancer patients.

Cells of old men naturally come to have defective DNA and genes, thus causing cancer.   No matter how long men live, they have to die some day with old cells with defective DNA and cancer, even if cancer symptoms do not occur or cancer medication is successful.  And, data such as those shown above do not seem to include those with cancer but without medical treatment.  Some old men with cancer might live and die without pains caused by taking anti-cancer medical treatment, living longer than other cancer paints who took painful medical care.

Anyway, almost 10 million people die yearly over the world due to cancer.  The corona-virus pandemic will not be able to cause this scale of tragedy in 2020.  However, if corona-viruses are not completely expelled, death by the corona-virus might become as common or resident as cancer or influenza (causing a half million deaths globally per year) in future.  But is it acceptable for the mankind?

Finally, when a new pandemic causing more than 10 million deaths globally yearly occur, we might be facing the end of the world.

John 6 King James Version (KJV)
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
