so it's sort of a more complete understanding. It's not a book about say, how to cure cancer. Now, you can't do that in or, you know, For that, you still need those treatments. It's a way to understand cancer in the relationships, that it has. And then what, this third Paradigm is evolutionary Paradigm is as you understand that, this is a cell that has evolved into something that is different, foreign species if you will. So, you know, it's weird to think that your own lung cell has now become a new species, but it's true because our immune system recognizes sort of our own Cells versus foreign cells. Right. And when it looks like after it says, that's a foreign cell, that's not part of our own body. So that lung cell which has turned into a lung cancer cell has now become sort of almost you could think of as a separate species that's recognized as foreign. Now, if you're talking about foreign Invaders, what you need to do is boost the immune system. So now that leads to a third sort of revolution in the way we treat cancer, we're not trying to kill cells which is Paradigm one. We're not. Trying to fix genetic problems. You just Paradigm to, we're trying to boost the immune system. And now you have immunotherapy, which is sort of the next, huge wave in sort of understanding how we're going to treat cancer. But it's it gets to back to understanding what cancer is to see how these treatments actually sort of flow. And it's an interesting and I think it's the most interesting story in medicine because it's one that sort of still evolving. And, you know, we still need to try and Stand up more. And we have such a lack of a fundamental understanding of what this disease actually is and that's what this is sort of an exploration of.
