Let’s finish this series with a discussion of some of the practical aspects of health optimization.
Homeostasis is the process of maintaining a stable internal environment in the face of changing external variables. Your body is oriented to homeostasis—it will always try and maintain a stable internal environment. It is an intricately designed, infinitely complex, finely tuned system that is remarkably resilient. It is very good at keeping you alive.
When we discuss human design, it is necessary that we get into topics such as genetics as well as our ancestral development. It’s necessary that we consider concepts such as how complex systems change, adapt, and evolve over time. It’s necessary for us to consider fields of study such as biological evolution.
I’d like to introduce a concept that is important for every human being—the concept of health optimization. Of course, we would all want our health to be optimized. We all want to be healthy. Everyone believes they understand what good health can provide, such as a longer lifespan, having more energy, and generally feeling better.
