Philosophy Wire: Self-healing. For anything but humans… [The importance of faith]


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-06-01]: Scientists have now introduced thin, flexible, lithium ion batteries with self-healing properties that even after completely breaking apart, can grow back together without significant impact on its electrochemical properties. [1] Our dogmatism is now so obvious and provocative… Self-healing batteries. An obvious progress for science. Self-healing humans. Absurd for modern science. Today’s dogmas put more faith in materials than in ourselves, which modern materialistic medicine does not accept it exists anyway. We have lost the faith in our souls. And we have become soulless. Literally.

PS. And yes, no matter how much you believe in batteries, they will someday stop working…
