-What does the first Hippocratic Oath really mean?

-What happens when knowledge comes before we're ready for it?

-Why does major surgery using only acupuncture work?

-Is there really sympathy between the organs of the body?

-What happens when someone yells, 'Is there a doctor in the house?' and you are the doctor?

-What goes through the mind of a heart transplant candidate who doesn't make it?
