Alexanders law in Medicine refers to spontaneous nystagmus (Involuntary eye movement) that occurs after an acute unilateral vestibular loss. It has THREE elements to explain how the vestibulo-ocular reflex responds to an acute vestibular insult. Reading this reminds me of The final THREE wishes of King Alexander.
My first wish is to have my physician bring my coffin home alone. After a gasping for air, Alexander continued: “My second wish is to scatter the gold, silver, and gems from my treasure-house along the path to the tomb when you ship my coffin to the grave.” After wrapping in a woollen blanket and resting for a while, he said: “My final wish it to put my hands outside the coffin.” People surrounding him all were very curious, but no one dares to ask the reason. Alexander’s most favoured General kissed his hand and asked: “My Majesty, We will follow your instruction. But can you tell us why you want us to do it this way?” After taking a deep breath, Alexander said: “I want everyone to understand the three lessons I have learned.
To let my physician carry my coffin alone is to let people realize that a physician cannot really cure people’s illness. Especially when they face death, the physicians are powerless. I hope people will learn to treasure their lives. My second wish is to tell people not to be like me in pursuing wealth. I spent my whole life pursuing wealth, but I was wasting my time most of the time. My third wish to let people understand that I came to this world in empty hands and I will leave this world also in empty hands.” he closed his eyes after finished talking and stopped breathing.
Such is our life, in 1 Timothy 6:7 we read “For we brought nothing into the word. And it’s certain we can carry nothing out.”
Our life is so short let us leave all the grudges, pride, arrogance, addictions and all hurtful things and be more forgiving, be more peaceful, be happier. Let us live for the Glory of the creator. God bless you and have an awesome week ahead.
