The portraits at the front cover represent personalities. They are like our restless personalities, who seek peace, but cannot find it in a changing, unstable world. We all have many personalities. Some we like, others we dislike. But the more we like them and the more we identify with them, the more they get us in their grip. The personalities gradually take over, limiting and fixing ourselves. In the end they start producing diseases.
The cure is letting go of those personalities, by becoming conscious of them. By realising that they are defense mechanisms that are one-sided and rigid, taking away our freedom. Cure is realized by getting into the problem and pain, instead of running away from them. By becoming aware of them, the self-healing power can act again and the personalities start losing their power. Then freedom is restored and peace sets in. Peace is part of our Self.
All personalities have a goal, have feelings about that goal and moreover ways how to handle to achieve or hold on to that goal. In this book the goals, feelings, and ways of acting are classified in a natural way, as given by the Periodic system of Elements. This way the personalities and accompanying diseases can be classified systematically. This gives medicine a scientific system. The clear formulation and classification of Personalities has made it much easier to find a real curing remedy for our patients.
The theories in this book present a solution to the suffering and confusion of us humans. It is science in its best sense: it formulates the goal, namely the cure, and gives us a classification how we can find the appropriate remedy with the help of systematic thinking.
