I've been wanting to post an entry about mind/body medicine ever since I heard about the computer game called "re-mission ." It's a free download. The 3-D graphics of inside the body are excellent. Cancer patients can take a virtual active role in fighting their disease by shooting cancer cells. Cancer patients (especially kids) might find this game fun and even therapeutic.
Ten years ago while attending Walden University, I wrote a paper on this same subject. I thought it would be a good idea to create a game that would help people visualize their immune system fighting to cure their disease. You are welcome to read my paper if you'd like. It's located here: Merging Virtual Reality and Mind/Body Medicine . I realize that English is a second language for many people reading my blog. My paper is long and is for advanced English language learners or for people who want to challenge themselves as they learn English. Don't let that stop you from spreading the word about "re-mission "which is a very cool game that could help people who are fighting a terrible disease.
What a trip! We were constantly on the move and taking pictures of everything we saw! I'll post a few of the pictures when I get to work on Monday.
I guess I should explain what the trip was all about, first. You see, I just finished writing 96 chapters for a very cool project for kids who want to practice reading English. Some of the chapters are about science, some are about history or social studies, some are famous stories that I rewrote in rhythm and rhyme, and many are poems and stories that I made up myself. The theme for the project is Hawaii, so that's why we made the trip. We will use many of the pictures we took to add a nice touch to the project (along with some great illustrations by Tacos! ).
I'm very excited about it, and it should be published soon!
