Have you ever wondered how our body can recover from almost every disease in existence?
Granted we do have the largest medical library in existence, but most drugs help/assist in our recovery.
An analogy would be how tanks could change the fate of a war, but they'd be irrelevant if there weren't any soldiers to man them.
In order to combat a disease, our immune system need to know it's weaknesses before it can multiply enough in our body to kill us.
That'd be equivalent to you unearthing a complex bomb in your garden, and you defusing it before it's timer of 2 seconds runs out.
A bacterium inside you can multiple and mutate over generations in the time it takes for you to finish a cup of warm tea for that sore throat.
So how do you counter a weapon that itself adapts multiple times?
That's where our Adaptive Immune System comes in.
It has a weapon for every single enemy that has existed, exists and will ever exist
For every possible antigen that is possible in the universe, you have the potential to recognize it inside you right now
In order to create such a vast library of solutions for every possible disease that could exist, your immune system does something extraordinarily brute force yet elegant.
It has a small number of gene fragments , each granting the cell the ability to identify a specific type of protein that could show up on a bacterium/virus.
The immune system then mixes and matches these gene fragments randomly. Basically shuffling the deck over and over again.
Once that's done, it's then taken to the Thymus , where the cell created is tested to make sure it cannot harm any of your own cells.
Since your immune system creates an infinite amount of cells, it also creates cells that can kill your own cells. Your thymus is crucial for identifying identification.
Your thymus contains a sample of every possible cell in your body, and the immune system tests its weapons there to make sure they don't react to any bodily cell.
A small University where your immune cells either pass with flying colors, or get killed.
Pretty grim if you ask me, but essential to our continued existence.
And there you have the largest, self assembling library that will ever exist. An all powerful system, that lets

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
