In the previous Chapter it is said about how important it is to spare the nervous system to maintain health and longevity.
The origin of neuroses one dimension has not. It is multifaceted. Just as life. But the warning them is the prevention of many other diseases and one of the most significant elements in the problem of the renewal of life.
Every age, as you know, has its own specific to her illness. One of the foreign authors noted that in the middle ages were dominated by the plague and leprosy. Renaissance "is characterized by" syphilis. In the Baroque era foreground typhus and scurvy as diseases of the common people, on the one hand, and gout and dejected as "aristocratic" disease, on the other. For the period of romanticism is characteristic of tuberculosis. The twentieth century has given rise to neurosis.
According to the world health organization, over 65 years (1974), the incidence of neuroses increased 24 times. While there has been notable in the second half of the XX century chronic mental fatigue of people and a related increase in cases of depression. Great importance is attached to increase the amount of knowledge that has to learn the modern man (thrashing), pronounced acceleration in everyday life, the increased dynamics of change of life situations, stretching the training period, a significant increase in the number of contacts modern person with other people. The brain was not prepared for the stresses of modern times. Not prepared to pace, pace, pace. The West German magazine "der Spiegel" has published in December 1978 article with a remarkable name: "Depression. Disease or destiny?"
It is in our time came "neuroses rush hours", "neuroses queue", "neuroses expectations."
We hasten. Always or almost always. Never have enough time. We are not satisfied with himself. Annoyed. When it is necessary to go to the guests. When someone is "just" calls. Because it detaches from things, from books that should be read from himself.
Among the factors leading to the deterioration of the nervous system, we underestimate the constant rush, in which the modern man. It is not easy to decide when he is a prisoner, and when the Creator.
How many had to meet people who are chronically deprived of sleep, complaining that the day has only twenty-four hours, which for haste forgotten how to eat and eat only swallow and take a vacation in order, finally, "calmly and work well". Not because they have a financial need. Just up the current pace, the wheel is spinning, and they can't stop. Or are unable themselves to stay?
They say this is the meaning of this life. The thesis is rather doubtful.
Such a person is always at the clock. And even when he's not looking, it seems that he was mentally counting the time. He hurries. In a hurry. Where? And what price are given these speeds, and this race for the transience?
It is hard to resist in order not to lead in this connection the concluding lines from the book psychiatrist C. L. levy, "I and we":
"Our life is in many respects arranged neurotically, antipsihoticescoe. Ugly, sloppy, disrespectful and insincere. And do not blame anyone, and not something, and every one, every one of us, all together. Once executed the plan. Build a bright future. That's fine, but why not build at the same time and bright? Improvised means that with us, in us.
