|The Healing Power of Sunlight
[1.35] If a physician were able to establish from a sick soul exactly which life-specifics have become weak within it, or are even lacking, and knew also the little herb which contains these particular life specifics, he would definitely be able to restore a sick soul or, which is the same, a sick person, to complete health.
[1.36] But since such deeper knowledge of a person and his soul is as unknown to an ordinary physician as is as yet undiscovered continent, medicine is and remains to him a guess rather than knowledge.
[1.37] So what people learned through experience and occasional lucky experiments concerning the healing powers of plants, minerals and animals, they mostly apply to the healing of their sick, and with most physicians the Nordic saying could be applied where such a physician is compared to a club: “If the club is lucky enough to strike the sickness, the patient improves, but if the club strikes the patient instead of the disease, the patient dies!”
