Brains and Immunity

Back in March, the University of Virginia announced that the brain turns out to be connected directly to the immune system -- and by structures we didn't know existed, long after most medical doctors thought the body was fully mapped. Now it turns out that the brain's connection to the immune system appears to govern something important about our social interactions.
So could immune system problems contribute to an inability to have normal social interactions? The answer appears to be yes, and that finding could have significant implications for neurological diseases such as autism-spectrum disorders and schizophrenia.
That's going to change the way we think about a number of different things.

It's not all that much of a change. People have been using "biofeedback" systems to heal themselves and other people for some time now. Maybe "science" thinks it is a change, but science is full of average and sub average humans.

Long after scientists had mapped out the model of the atom, but the physicists were one mark higher and didn't think themselves so arrogant that they refused to replace that model 3 or 4 or 5 times.

The human body is supposedly created by God or designed in virtual for genetic creation via water, as the methodology of higher order entities. Mortal understanding of any high level creatione, specially since they cannot duplicate such (physicists could at least split the atom even though they could not alchemically convert iron to gold) high level lifeforms, guarantees a level of limitation and ignorance.
