The increasing power of military weapons, combined with aerial surveillance, satellites, sensors and long-distance global communications, has dispersed the military battlefield. Resource-poor forces have responded, first with guerrilla tactics against isolated bases and supply lines; and then with terrorist tactics, hiding in the civilian population and attacking civilians as softer targets. Terrorism grows in symbiosis with high tech weapons and communications because the weaker side cannot win on conventional battlefields.
At the heart of a therapeutic process lies the temporality of healing, an expectation of, at least, a minimum of measurable improvement. What if, however, the trajectory of a life, or suffering, fail to move along this anticipation of a cure? Chronic pain, terminal, and life-long illnesses are part of a spectrum that challenges conventional medicine.
