The human immune system is also concerned with the health and overall well-being of the human organism.

        Discrimination of various kinds is the first job of the human brain. After the human brain has done its job of discriminating between various aspects of its environment by using the senses of the body, its next task is to decide which aspects of the external environment are harmful and which are useful to itself. The brain then decides to love and utilize the useful aspects of its external environment and to hate, avoid, eliminate, etc., the harmful aspects of the external environment.

        When the human brain functions normally, the discriminating functions of the brain are in harmony with its environment, but when the human brain begins to function abnormally, psychologically speaking, the discriminating functions of the brain are not in harmony with the external environment, and the person develops abnormal discriminations like racism, bigotry, etc., but their recognition and treatment as psychological illnesses is rare.
