Creating Waves of Awareness

Are we loosing touch with the printed books?

I have seen some senior homeopaths who were very punctual in reading books. They used to remember the contents of each and every page with the correct page number!

After the introduction of computer, we are loosing the touch with the printed books (Materia Medica, Repertory, Organon and Philosophy). Now, most of us prefer to use softwares, e books, blogs etc. Of course computer is a great help for quick reference and repertorization, however we should remember that the feeling we get by reading a printed book is totally different, and whatever information we read, gets stored in the brain very easily.

Hence, at least spend an hour in a day for book reading.

Wish you a happy reading.

You have pointed towards a good omission in our day to day practice. Thanks.

Yes I love books too, just reading Anne Vervacke 'Behind the glass screen' and Louis Klein 'Miasms and Nosodes'; I always have a pencil to hand when I read so that I can make comments, underline and think of patients who might benefit from the remedy that I am reading about.

I agree with you Dr. Rafeeque. The text which you grab while reading a printed book is far more penetrating than simply going through a computer screen.

What a great recommendation. Many of the conversation have been about "foundation" and how knowledge is built. This includes the human facility to learn. In order to read, is it important to learn hand-eye coordination in the ability to draw and write? I would conclude Yes, even though students today go quickly to a keyboard. Some new connections are made from the visual eye to the action of the hand when writing, perfecting the forms of letters and movement in drawing. Even cave people drew on the walls. Like the developmental stages of the fetus, humans will improve their brain, memory and ability to use logic by practicing certain skills.

Like the "foundation" of learning the methods of our historic figures in homeopathy, learning the basic structures of building blocks in geometric shapes and colors, the formation of letters, syllables, sounds and words, we can also absorb more information when repetition, turning pages, [dialing a telephone LOL instead of a push button ~ thought I would throw that in too] and reading the written word from a book we hold in our hands.

Ancient peoples put everything to memory and then the printing press made us all lazy. With so much information we must rely upon outside sources of support, but we wonder ~ what are the consequences?

Good for you Dr. Rafeeque! I couldn't agree more. The whole world today seems to rely on computer search engines to answer all their questions-- reading and absorbing BOOKS create scholars vs. robots.
