836. Gotfried Leibniz's book on Monadology and Why Cancer Cannot be Solved.
Paragraph 14 (click)
The passing condition which involves and represents a multiplicity in the unity, or in the simple substance, is nothing else than what is called perception. This should be carefully distinguished from apperception or consciousness, as will appear in what follows. In this matter the Cartesians have fallen into a serious error, in that they deny the existence of those perceptions of which we are not conscious. It is this also which has led them to believe that spirits alone are monads and that there are no souls of animals or other entelechies, and it has led them to make the common confusion between a protracted period of unconsciousness and actual death. They have thus adopted the Scholastic error that souls can exist entirely separated from bodies, and have even confirmed ill-balanced minds in the belief that souls are mortal
In Paragraph 14 Leibniz says that the Cartesians say that spirits alone are monads, that there are no souls of animals, and that animals are mortal. The religious/Cartesian beliefs say that a God comes into existence and creates a universe that ends. The physicians/atheists/Cartesians beliefs say that an atom comes into existence and creates a universe that ends.
I follow Gottfried Leibniz's New God and endless universe and the souls of humans, animals, and plants. Recently, l lost a Bichon dog, Chaton. Yesterday, I received a new Bichon dog, Buddy. Chaton perceived during his whole life. Buddy is perceiving. Since Chaton has a soul that is immortal, he will be reborn again. The same rebirth will happen to all humans, animals, and plants The souls of humans, animals, and plants are unknown to the scientists of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). This is why NIH is not solving cancer.
