Curing mental illnesses with bone marrow transplants, antibiotics, etc.
Yeah. This is pretty well explainable at this point. Also covered a similar example in "Heavenly Feud". Physical exertion causes same endogenic response as nociception in the body. Bone marrow is not just a litmus test but apparently a shot caller. Seems our immune system is slowly designed to cannibalize itself if we stagnate too long. We have to give it something to work at otherwise it gets up to mischief. Who knows, maybe breast cancer's why women like getting spanked so much.

Welp... here we go.
In fact, a recent statistical study that looked at five years of U.S. data found that for five of the deadliest cancers, "the survival benefit associated with marriage was larger than the published survival benefit of chemotherapy."
Wow. Also clearly obvious that people with multiple sclerosis need to be exercising way more. It's caused by physical stagnation at which point your own immune system "catches up" with you and translates that stagnation into your physiology by slowly attacking you.
This is probably why they used to use electroshock "torture" as a means of therapy on women in so-called mental institutions back in the day. :\
Brute force tactics on what could have been and needs to be conducted with much more "surgical" precision.

I think I've seen mental illness caused by stagnation first hand. This is some crazy shit.
I've noticed this first-hand as well, I have to strictly limit my tech usage until I reset this stagnation switch (freeze response). Its gotten me into a lot of trouble and yes, it relates DIRECTLY to the pain response as the unconscious leads to avoid the suffering that is required to reignite and stoke the fires of the soul.
Im fortunate that I have an established practice of inner peace and serenity through my Tai Chi (although its poor at the moment). Acceptance of my inner peace is the only thing that has kept me grounded. Tolle, Ram Dass, Sadhguru, etc, but the real power for me is in how I can own the shit out of my pain and struggle and feel alive in this opportunity to thrive.
I feel most like a man in crisis that opens my eyes to the opportunity of the moment, no therapy or routine can quite capture that in a satisfying way!
This is pretty personal to me, electric, thanks for sharing.
