SPARK IN THE MACHINE Dr Daniel Keown

by: Dr Daniel Keown




Why can salamanders grow new legs, and young children grow new finger tips, but adult humans can't regenerate? Dan Keown's highly accessible, witty, and insightful book shows how western medicine validates the theories of Chinese medicine, and how Chinese medicine explains the mysteries of the body that western medicine largely ignores. He explains the generative force of embryology, how the hearts of two people in love (or in scientific terms 'quantum entanglement') truly beat as one, how a cheating heart is also an ill heart, and why Proust's madeleines evoked the memories they did. Full of good stories and surprising details, this book is essential reading for anyone who has ever wanted to know how the body really works and how it interacts with ‘the ghost in the machine’.
