The Fingerprint of Truth

This past Thursday and Friday I had the opportunity to attend the ISANH Paris World Redox Conference on Oxidative Stress Reduction, Redox Homeostasis and Antioxidants. As the long name indicates, this was an academic conference attended and presented by PhD researchers from over 30 countries, covering a variety of disciplines in this growing area of science and its application. This was especially meaningful for me, as I have been a proponent of this are research for many years.

This Sunday morning my mind is flooded with impressions. I wish to share a few with you. All around me in Paris are reminders of the history of human intellectual development, in the famous universities, the museums, the art, the music, beauty in building and structure of cathedrals, castles. The feeling of the emergence of society from a warring feudal state into a renaissance of knowledge of truth and beauty is palpable. It has brought my mind to wonder how to identify that subtle but powerful pattern of human development that connects us and impels us toward the pursuit truth and beauty. The patterns in our psyche and society that identify such a pursuit are what I call the fingerprint of truth.

Truth simply is that that is. It exists beyond the sphere of human pretense and interpretation. Those that are diligent to the pursuit of truth often develop the real human virtues of being fascinated, open, magnanimous, curious, dedicated, with a burning desire to share their discoveries with all that wish to comprehend. This appears to be the fingerprint of those so engaged. These sincere desires are expressed and resonate in verse, music and art as well as in math and science research. This fingerprint was seen everywhere at this Redox Conference.  There was a kind air toward those who are dedicated to the same path and an understanding of the importance of this field of knowledge in application to medical science and for the benefit of humanity.

During the next several posts I will outline some of the research and developments we saw at the conference and many others so you also might be enlightened and inspired.  Let us all keep this fire brightly ablaze.  Stay tuned.

    Dr Samuelson, Hank and I support all of your persistent energy in this most important breakthrough of our lifetime! We celebrated our 48 th wedding anniversary on June 19th. Our marriage 4 times could have been stopped due to severe health diagnoses. But to your desire to pursue highest excellence in your field of expertise; Hank and I live a more fruitful life! We are forever grateful and spiritually blessed beyond measure that the Lord allowed you as his vessel…we pray for your family that supports you led by your loving wife Iris. Today we can hopefully fulfill the plan that God had in mind. We trust you lead by example and keep the education and discussions of REDOX progressively to do “good” in the world!

    Sincere and warmest regards!

    Pilot really didn’t understand the depth or breadth of what he was asking when he said, “What is truth?” To this day, we still are searching for the answer that was right in front of him at that moment. I look forward to your continued journey in pursuit of truth.
