Cultivation and Science in the Field of Pharmaceutics

Cultivation and Science seems to be unrelated for people who do not know about cultivation. I graduated in the field of Pharmaceutics, which involves the development of pharmaceutical products, and it is science. Although my head is filled with science, I was fortunate enough that my original nature had not been shrouded completely. Even before I started practicing, therehad been something about myself that I could not explain scientifically. After practice, all questions become clearer and clearer. Now I can see that what Master Li Hongzhi has taught is science.

In Zhuan Falun (1), Master Li Hongzhi teaches about "Loss and Gain". Although what he teaches is in the human level, it is also true in the more microscopic world, i.e., in chemical reactions. The reactions only occur when there are loss(es) and gain(s) in the reactions, either in substrates or in products, and the loss and gain must be balanced. We cannot see the process of loss and gain with the human eyes, but we may be able to see the results of the reactions sometimes if they cause changes in physical states. This is similar to the transformation of karma (2) that Master Li Hongzhi teaches. So, people who believe in "seeing is believing" have lost their great chances. Even in science, the reaction is there, but we cannot see. After we can analyze it, then we believe.

"In the universe, there is the law of formation, settlement, and deterioration. Nothing is constant without change. (3)" I have never seen any drugs that do not undergo changes. In the process of pharmaceutical product development, we have to make sure that the product must be stable. What we usually do is to add some chemicals to stabilize the drug. An example is the addition of antioxidant(s) if the drug degrades by oxidation. We get a stable drug with an expense of the antioxidant, i.e., no loss no gain. Since the drugs degrade even after an attempt of stabilization process, the pharmaceutical products normally have given shelf-lives. In most cases, the accepted lowest level is 90 % of the specified dosage.

Another example is the physical changes in emulsion products that we can see with the human eyes. Emulsions are products made from oil and water. Naturally, oil and water cannot mix. Therefore, the system needs emulsifier(s) that can give mechanical strength to the interface barrier of the internal droplets. Scientists believe that the smaller internal droplets, the more surface free energy they possess, and therefore the less stable thermodynamically. The whole system tries to reduce the energy by fusion of the internal droplets. If the system starts with a microemulsion product, which is clear to the human eyes, the system will become cloudy as time passes since the internal droplets become large enough to reflect light to the human eyes. If the system starts with a milky-white product, it will end up with separation into 2-3 phases sooner or later. No drug and no pharmaceutical product are stable without change.

The same principle applies to the human body. Human beings must undergo birth, illness, aging, and death. Generally, the deterioration cannot be reversed although it can be retarded sometimes using medicine. Falun Dafa can help practitioners reverse the changes in their physical bodies. Falun Dafa is science, the real science.
