Think, But Don’t Tell

-Honest Silence-

Learn from the fruits of your experience but don’t share from the tree of knowledge. For that is a sin, but it is not quite evil.

In modern western culture, a bizarre reality has surfaced regarding the restriction of information through a broken and outdated legal system. Our system and laws were designed pre-Google era which means at this point, many laws have become obsolete. I urge my readers to rethink the concept of owning ideas, DNA, and information, for these things are God-Given, not actual property to be owned.

One of my favorite modern philosophers, Jordan Peterson talks about the natural hierarchy that forms throughout nature. I have loved Jordan’s conservative take on individual liberties as well as personal responsibilities. As much as Jordan is right, there is definite dialogue to be had pertaining to how much we enforce a hierarchy compared to how much we let it naturally occur. At this day and age, we are not living in a natural state thus we must reassess how we compose our social institutions to assure they create the most right results.

Since working at a hospital, I notice that the hierarchy in the medical field has become so rigid, that even sharing factual information can land you prison time for up to 8 years. The hospital literally requires specific colored uniforms per the job type which means the color you wear describes the conversations you are legally allowed to have. This concept does hold water in terms of protecting individuals from harmful advice and also following the HIPPA guidelines, but there is more than a fishy smell involved here, especially as unscientific medical processes are implemented as actual health standards and advice is ignored.

I am quite a talker and I have been fascinated with natural health for over a decade. This combination makes it very difficult to not educate the many patients I see on a regular shift. There has been so much misinformation and slander in the name or natural health that the fact natural health conversations are unprotected, gives worry to the manipulation protruding through the seams of our livelihood.

Since Google implemented a Q&A function into their AI, people have unlimited access to answers that only a few highly paid professionals did in the past. To defend the Hierarchical statement, getting a direct answer can misappropriate the reality of a simple answer due to the lack of context or story to the answer. Furthermore, it does take some intuitive interest or base level understanding to know exactly what to search in the first place. There is also contradictory information/research that takes a trained eye to distinguish. However, I believe people are quite lazy when it comes to finding the truth to an extent that bleeds into intended ignorance. Thus, we need communicators and educators.

I understand the reason certain rules exist, but at the same time, am I violating the Hippocratic Oath by not sharing information that I have researched pertaining to the individual at hand? I feel at odds when people show up at the hospital in dire need of helpful advice but leave with a prescription oblivious to the problem entirely. There are miracle drugs out there and many of times, doctors don’t have the time to sit down and put a plan together for reparation and prevention ler each patient. Many of times, a computer algorithm could diagnose someone. Other times, a diet could eradicate the problem, but instead of using these approaches, we are subjected to trusting outdated techniques and information distributed by a profit model that neglects the function of natural health and personal responsibility. I even recently advised a nurse on a diet to help with her chronic bronchitis post CV19 vaccine and she has up to this point not taken an initiative. Rest assured she has gone through 3 rounds of antibiotics.

I recently got in trouble l about advising a patient telling her she must watch her diet after dealing with a perforated bowel. I am baffled by the leftist ideology of protecting someone’s feelings over their health. But at the end of the day, I get it. These people don’t want help until they are on death’s door step. It kind of reminds me of a sinning Christian who refuses to change their actions but lives in a constant state of forgiveness. Let’s make honesty great again. Let’s make conversations legal again. Let’s train individual’s brains and encourage society to build better systems that we all support and need.

I wrote this piece while still at the hospital. Now after leaving the hospital and beginning a new career in HVAC, I am thrilled to be able to focus on my own happiness. It is as if a dark cloud has lifted and I can breathe in fresher air, despite the hours inside crawl spaces and crawling in attic spaces. I often miss the aspect of helping people in a direct sense but as an HVAC specialist, I still help people and to be quite frank, they are more appreciative in what I do now then what I was doing before. I’m excited to grow in all areas of life and am excited to share my journey as I do. #letsgrow
