Andy Prendergast, scientist and good friend of the Order, wrote us a provocative essay on cancer and where it fits into our evolutionary development.
If you like hard science made accessible and interesting, this is absolutely for you.
“A common refrain at the Order seems to be: the world is full of death, and our awareness of it has been unnecessarily suppressed. As an extension of that theme, I’m telling you now: you’re a walking cellular Holocaust, and you’re blissfully unaware of that most of the time. Ironically, the moment it becomes most apparent that your body has been killing little pieces of itself for years is when that process fails. Because often, the consequence of this failure is cancer.”
