“If you try to distill a human being into a series of checkboxes, you don’t know the person, you know the checkboxes. So you don’t know what they’re missing on the spiritual or the social or the economic levels. All you know is the physical level — and people are way more than the total of a physical checklist. We need to actually understand mind, body and spirit to understand health, and that is the frightening part that we distill away when we try to make us all ones and zeroes and sets of numbers.”
