Ep 309: The Ontology of Auto-Immune Diseases

Listen to the Episode Here:

Auto-immune diseases are diseases that are of many different varieties. It includes lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and more.

In this episode, we will look at auto-immune disease ontologically or its way of being.
Our immune system protects us from foreign objects that can cause us harm.

When someone has an auto-immune disease, what is happening is that the system is attacking itself or parts of the body instead of protecting it. One of the ways we can see auto-immune disease ontologically is a system that is so vigilant that it is attacking itself.

It is so vigilant that it is creating false positives. “Oh, here is a problem…” But it’s not a problem.

What might lead to a system doing that? What are the conditions that will create something hypervigilant and cause auto-immune disease? Listen to know more about it! Enjoy the show!
