Descartes was a jack of all trades, making major contributions to the areas of anatomy, cognitive science, optics, mathematics and philosophy.

However, if we wish him to be more than a historical artifact, we must do more than just study him against the background of his time. We must reinterpret him in light of the germane thought of our own age. -James Driscoll The Unfolding God Of Jung and Milton Images and allusions to sex and death are intermingled throughout John Milton

The body attempts to maintain a state of homeostasis or balance to ensure the optimal operating environment for its complex chemical systems. Any change from this homeostasis is a change away from the optimal operating environment. The body attempts to correct this imbalance. One such imbalance is the effect of increasing altitude on the body's ability to provide adequate oxygen to be utiliz
