For the first time, we have an index of change.  If you’ve had many changes in your life within a short time, this places a great challenge on your body…  An enormous number of changes within a short period might overwhelm its coping mechanisms.
It is clear that there is a connection between the body’s defenses and the demands for change that society imposes.  We are in a continuous dynamic equilibrium…  Various ‘noxious’ elements, both internal and external, are always present, always seeking to explode into disease.  For example, certain viruses live in the body and cause disease only when the defenses of the body wear down.  There may well be generalized body defense systems that prove inadequate to cope with the flood of demands for change that come pulsing through the nervous and endocrine systems.
