Zen and the Discovery of a “New” Organ
The Human Interstitium
A talk by Neil Soten Theise
Neil Soten Theise, MD, physician-scientist and Village Zendo Senior Student will discuss the discovery of a “new” organ widely reported in the world press earlier this year. In telling the story of this new anatomy, he will once again show how zen practice of “not knowing” is at the core of creative scientific advances. Interestingly, the human interstitium —literally the tissue that lies “in between” — may turn out to be the interstitial concept that can finally mediate connections between diverse traditions of clinical practice and biology including contemporary allopathic (“Western”) medicine, osteopathy, fascia science, acupuncture, concepts of chi and prana and pulse diagnosis in Tibetan medicine.
