It is especially important not to fall prey to the eight incidental circumstances that make Dharma impossible or the eight impossible states where mind cuts us off from the Dharma. Firstly, to be misled by corrupting influences , which means meeting teachers who do not act according to the Dharma. Then, despite your occasional desire to practise Dharma, you may be prevented from doing so by your conflicting emotions, when the five poisons are raging inside your mind, and you are swept away by their strength. Or whilst practising, negative karma may overtake you and ripen as negative circumstances. If you don’t know how to integrate these into the path, then they will become obstacles. You may wish to put the teachings into practice, but if you lack diligence, you will be distracted by laziness . In some cases, you may have an interest in the teachings, whilst being a slave under someone else’s control . There are also those who merely appear to be engaged in the path and just pretend to practise for the sake of gaining food and clothing, or as a cure for illness or harmful spirits, or out of fear of punishment. This is like putting donkey meat into a container and passing it off as quality venison or camel meat. Although your attitude conflicts with the teachings, you act like a practitioner in the company of others in the hope of gaining some respect or reward. Being chronically senseless and stupid means not feeling any enthusiasm when learning of the qualities and benefits of positive actions and not fearing the consequences of negative actions, having been influenced by negative friends. These are 'the eight incidental circumstances that make Dharma impossible' .
1) You give 1 anecdotal example, and in turn suggest that somehow that means the British have always been conservative? I remind you that it is almost a FULL CENTURY since the incident you mentioned and both medicine and medical sciences have made signficiant strides across all countries. Please provide some more recent examples
2) The whole point here is that this “medicine” offered in the US is not even in experimental stages… It has been tested in a different group of people but to date has not been experimented in the population with Charlie Gard’s mutation — hence there’s no evidence that it would actually work, unlike the insulin case you brought up.
