The lighting of candles in these scientific meetings in India is a great honor, as it is a symbol to show the enlightenment, an act of giving light to shadows and darkness, signifying bringing knowledge to where there is emptiness in that specific area. This extraordinary symbol in India is a unique ceremony that the whole world needs to understand and learn from this millenary culture that was so creative in science, the arts, the personal growth, the love for nature and the respect for all animals and living beings. The western civilization has so much to learn!!!

ONE CONCEPT INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High altitude”:

The theory proposed by Prof. Dr. Gustavo Zubieta-Castillo that man con adapt to live in the hypoxic levels of Mt. Everest, was retouched. It becomes more and more evident that this is a reality. The Indian Army Units disposed in the border with Pakistan at 6000m of altitude, are a strong proof that adaptation to this altitude is possible. DIPAS is the Institution that contributes greatly to the success of such unique missions. We met several Army medical officers, that had worked in such missions and all were in agreement with our points of view.
