    I do completely agree with the concept of the 'butterfly effect'. The
    best way to conceive Nature, and Medicine, I think, is as chaotic
    systems in dynamic equilibrium. The commonality I mean, among the
    different methods that approach the body manually, is exactly that (a
    controlled interference with the equilibrium). The Neurovegetative
    System has much in common with a chaotic system, something like a neural
    probabilistic cloud, and this is why I suppose its involvment: but
    obviously that's only a theory, as is the mediation of the paraspinal
    muscles. The fact is that they work (sometimes). The hope is the
    understanding. Thank you for your love for Rome! (but the coming
    Jubilaeum is creating so many problems!)

    A note for Jay M.Trennoche, who wrote: 'If you manipulate you can
    comment on manipulation'. Admittedly, I don't manipulate, I am an expert
    in child rehabilitation. However, I have learned much from biomechanic
    engineers, who don't rehabilitate children: what if I said them 'If you
    rehabilitate you can comment on rehabilitation'?
