One evening more than twelve years ago I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. (For some months I had been having trouble breathing. Despite my own study and practice of Christian Science, there seemed to have been little progress in relieving the condition. Then a midnight crisis had brought about a need for immediate help.) The practitioner's response startled me, because he asked if I had elm tree disease.

When I responded to the question by saying no, he asked why. I stated that I was not an elm tree. Then the practitioner calmly replied that neither was I a mortal.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
