Supposing we have physical or mental mechanisms that may be broken, restored, and retrained, then, in line with our previous discussions, the breaking will be the illness, the restoration medicine, and the retraining no more medical than physiotherapy, i.e., a border-line case of medical treatment. Also, restoration is the physician putting things together and enabling nature to cure plus nature curing. Suppose, further, that we have a mental mechanise that is not broken, but gone practically irretrievably the wrong way; its restoration to the right way or to the point of departure to the wrong way, will be as much medical as plastic surgery meant to remove a scar, or to remove the slant in slanted eyes or sweat glands, to mention plastic surgery practiced at one time or another in Japan.
