The idea of a drug treatment used to fight HIV, might stave off multiple sclerosis (MS) was first propounded in 2011 by Julian Gold of Prince of Wales Hospital in Sidney, according to Medical News Today. Dr Golds suspicion was confirmed in a study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. HIV patients may lower the risk of developing muscular sclerosis.
Dr Gold treats HIV and Muscular Sclerosis (MS) patients, and over the years he’s never encounter a case of both disease existing simultaneously. There were over 600,000 papers published on HIV/AIDS and 300,000 on MS; no patients were referred to pair both disease. There were instances where HIV existed with symptoms of MS, but the antiretroviral used to suppress the progression of HIV seemed to shrug-off the MS.
HIV destroy the cells while weakening the immune system, and MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the spinal chord and brain. The antiretroviral drug counterattacks the HIV virus while indirectly resolving another medical problem. A prime example of a synthesis deriving from an antithesis, it’s like an equilibrium, where opposing forces balances another medical issue. We’ve seen instances in movies where the rivalry between the protagonist and antagonist seems irreconcilable, but by some external divine intervention they collaborate for a greater cause.
Antithesis is the contrast or opposition of an idea or concept, and synthesis is the unified whole of mutually exclusive elements, or the reconciliation of contradictory ideas where a new idea is formed. This concept has been perfectly demonstrated within the medical field. Our perception of the world is constructed around polar opposites, a notion demonstrated in Issac Newton’s Three Laws of Motion, a law in nature that laid the foundation for classical mechanics.
Primarily the “Third Law” which states; every force or action is contingent on an equal reactive force. Meaning if force is applied to a cup on a table, its motion and velocity should be perpetual, but what hinders or constricts an object in motion is an external force; like the tables contrasting friction applied to the cup in motion, hence it stops. Or the “First Law” which states; an object in uniform motion stays in motion unless acted upon by any given force.
Change or ingenuity always seems to be conducive to the confrontation of opposites; conflicts between opposing classes induces a social change; a congressional rivalry between political parties in the Senate and House of Representatives, resulting in a bipartisan. Political movements united in the struggle against capitalism and the wealthy class, resulting in a revolution or qualitative change. Intense cardiovascular weakens the heart while strengthening it.
Professor John Nash, famous quote in the movie “A Beautiful Mind, “I’ve made the most important discovery of my life. It’s only in the mysterious equation of love that any logic or reasons can be found.” The perfect symbiosis between the logic and reason behind mathematics and the mysterious enigma of love. His most important discoveries came through the merging of mutually exclusive elements.
We’re warped into a universe that inherently navigates itself around opposing forces; matter and antimatter; inside the atom on a subatomic level protons have a positive electric charge while electrons have a negative electric charge. The pleasure vs displeasure psychology of roller-coasters, the sudden surge and cascading jerk that releases dopamine and adrenaline rush in the brain. What I find intriguing is not their equilibriums, because that’s inevitable, opposing forces will eventually balance itself out. The phenomenon is the skewed and non-linear unanticipated results that springs forth the paradigm of a new innovation.
