You don't really understand what your doctor is telling
you and are afraid to ask? You can't make head or tails of a medical
prescription and medical terminology? You are worried because you don't
thoroughly understand what is in your medical file and frustrated because
you would like to be able to discuss it on even terms with your physician?
You are interested in the Life/Natural Sciences and
You are a medical student and you need help?
You would like to apply for:
i. the full Online Doctorate Program
in The Life Sciences or ii. the full Online Doctorate Program in Medicine?
(*) The Doctorate in The Life
Sciences & Medicine is in the process of being integrated into the
much more ambitious Doctorate in Interfaces that shall be available
through the Interface Assimilation Programme (IAP) at the IIRC.

No need to browse through countless medical web sites
often so saturated with medical information that you'll probably end up
getting more confused, irritated or worried than before, not to say
Besides, how can you be sure that the data that you have
found is reliable and really adapted to your particular case?
This interactive educational web site provides
information (including tutorials) on health issues, basic principles of
medical sciences and medicine. Answers to questions and courses are tailored to the
user's specific needs, background and understanding grid.
Every question shall be treated individually and
confidentially through personalised interactive e-mail correspondence.
Tutorials/Basic theory shall be given where appropriate and are based on
first-class references (Medical
and Scientific literature). Selected books/articles shall also be
suggested for further reading.
Medicine and Science should be
accessible to all. Everyone without exception should be in a position to
have a clear understanding of what is going on inside - and
outside(!) them - through access to the appropriate information.In fact it
should be in every human being's interest to understand how his/her own
The problem is that medical and life/natural science
courses, including explanations and answers to questions, are generally
poorly adapted to the person's specific needs, personal comprehension
grid, personality and background.
The site privileges critical understanding to the
passive mechanical accumulation of knowledge. What's the point spending
hours of your time reading through and memorising countless scientific
and medical publications if you have the utmost difficulty just trying
to understand them in the first place?
Every effort is made to make
sure that you have thoroughly understood your specific concern, interest
or course in medicine and/or the life sciences. The site is open to the general
public, medical students and accomplished physicians.
Anyway, what do we 'know' exactly?
Does knowledge make you any the wiser?
The proportion of clever yet unbalanced human beings on
Planet Earth is rising dangerously. Is this world not politically and
emotionally immature? The academically gifted my be clever, but what the
world deeds is intelligence. There is a need for a fundamental educational
A degree even when it is deserved - which is not always
necessarily the case - does not automatically mean competence.
Proficiency in a restricted branch, yet feeling
completely out of your depth when it comes to dealing with the vast
expanse of data that lies before and within you in countless other fields,
you call that competent?
The notion of
expert/competence needs to be redefined. Besides, a highly competent
expert in a very focussed area may not be all that useful
interdisciplinary competence cannot be achieved through existing
conventional educational programs. This requires Interface
A general introduction to interfaces was presented in the book "The
Interface Paradigm". The first edition sold out long ago. The
was to serve to invite interactive local, regional, national and
international discussions with the public (whatever the background, ethnic
origin and condition) relayed by the Press and TV/Radio programs on the
internal dysfunctions of The System, the object being to improve World
Society Well Being and Quality of Life. A second edition is under
preparation but in the meantime we can examine what IS and
what IS NOT working in World Society. Considering the present world
situation, a thorough holistic integrated interdisciplinary study across
frontiers of the latter is not only essential but urgent.
is important is what and how you 'know' (whatever that is
supposed to mean...), not so much the degree as such.
Life is a fascinating and beautiful process essentially
based on a dynamic exchange of information. Poor communication creates
problems everywhere. So... Let's communicate and share our knowledge!
InfoDiagnosis is a precursor
of the Customised Interactive Software (CIS) Project that forms part of
Multidisciplinary Neuroscience Research Centre's (IMNRC's)
Programme. We shall soon be around ten billion human beings on this
planet and there shall never be enough institutions to train ten billion
human beings. Another fact is that sending your daughter/son to a
University is no guarantee that she/he shall come out competent. Good
pedagogues are a rare species. CIS adapts the material to be assimilated
according to the student's own understanding grid. This means that in the
medium, long, hopefully maybe even short term, any person shall be able to
acquire professional competence in any subject of his/her choice, prove
his/her competence to a potential employer and get the job,
short-circuiting the University entirely. Why go to a school or university when you can acquire
all the necessary skills at home without having to live through the
psychological stress, despotism and arrogance of academic institutions? Top/standard
World Universities shall be replaced by top/standard World CIS. The status
of schools and universities shall change. They shall still be useful for
practical applications and as brainstorming hubs, but as structured today,
they shall disappear. The Educational System shall at long last
lose its hold on the citizens' future, not to mention on society
NO to Hypocrisy, War
and Cultural Imperialism!
NO to the "UNITED"
NATIONS and to the EUROPEAN "UNION"!(*)
YES to a new WORLD
UNION and subsequent WORLD PEACE!

Medicine are in the process of being incorporated and integrated together
