Recovered: Tensegrity Structures in Biology

What is a human being? What is life? Can science give us reliable answers to such questions? The electricity of life. The meaning of human consciousness. Are we alone? Are the traditional contests between science and religion still relevant? Does the word "spirit" still hold meaning today?

I'll place this here, as a token of thanks for Kevin's Dowsing and the Lattice-thread, how it exactly applies I'm not sure
but as it is a biological structure too, this thread seemed more suitable

Human Skin as Arrays of Helical Antennas in the Millimeter and Submillimeter Wave Range

Recent studies of the minute morphology of the skin by optical coherence tomography showed that the sweat ducts in human skin are helically shaped tubes, filled with a conductive aqueous solution. A computer simulation study of these structures in millimeter and submillimeter wave bands show that the human skin functions as an array of low-Q helical antennas. Experimental evidence is presented that the spectral response in the sub-Terahertz region is governed by the level of activity of the perspiration system. It is also correlated to physiological stress as manifested by the pulse rate and the systolic blood pressure.

The respective permittivities of the skin layers are marked. They were estimated for the specific frequency range based on the water content of the layers.

Cytoskeletal Dynamics During Cytokinesis

von Dassow, Bement, Foe, Odell

Despite no lack of attention from cell biologists, geneticists, and even theoreticians, animal cell cytokinesis — during which the cell actually pinches in two following chromosome segregation — remains an unsolved mystery. It is widely accepted that progress of the division furrow is based on the contraction of a bundle of aligned actin filaments and myosins, the contractile ring, which is a remarkably conserved feature of dividing animal cells. Also, classical experiments show that animal cells establish the furrow region in relation to the position and orientation of the microtubule-based mitotic apparatus: cells of various types correct for experimental displacement of the metaphase spindle due to centrifugation, deformation, or micromanipulation, managing still to cleave such that the furrow separates one set of chromosomes and spindle pole from the other set.
Image
Actin (blue) and microtubules (orange) at the end of cytokinesis in a green urchin zygote.

What is not clear is how the spatial information immanent within the microtubule-based mitotic apparatus, deep in the cell, coordinates with the cell cortex to direct formation of the contractile ring and the initiation of furrowing at the appropriate site (see picture below). Because of the uniformity of the contractile ring, many biologists seem to have assumed that all animal cells share a common mechanism for furrow positioning and contractile ring assembly. However, animal cells are diverse in size, shape, and other properties.
Image
Sand dollar zygotes during first mitosis, fixed and stained for microtubules and chromosomes (single confocal sections). Top row: metaphase, early anaphase, late anaphase; bottom row: successive stages in furrowing. A variety of experiments imply that microtubules stimulate cortical contractility in the cell equator, but also many experiments purport to show that microtubules are dispensable after mid-anaphase (right-most frame in the top row). In an urchin egg like this one, microtubules have reached the cell poles at this stage, but not the equator. They only reach the equator after furrow initiation (left frame, bottom row). How can this be?

While it may be that most animal cells use many of the same molecular components to accomplish division, they may not all use that machinery in the same way.
ImageImageImage

One of our major research projects is therefore to re-examine cytokinesis in echinoderm embryos using state-of-the-art microscopy and molecular probes, to find out how to reconcile classical observations with emerging knowledge of the molecular details of cell mechanics.

The relationship of quantum spin reveals the nature of the folding.
Aether is a 2 spin rmf (rotating magnetic field)
Matter and antimatter (rmf + angular momentum) are a resulting 1/2 spin.
This is encapsulation.

In a neutron, aether folds over a e- and a p+ with the angular momentum of a neutrino included in the fold.
Therefore e- and p+ are encapsulated.
Neutrons are folded. They of course unfold back into their building blocks of a encapsulated e-, p+ and PAM @ neutrino.

The movement of structural proteins reveals both encapulation and folding-unfolding properties.
This fractal nature beings at stage one and two.

Very good find Seasmith, just need to put a 'folding' movement on that. For further contrast:

At its most distended Space and most relaxed pace of the Time (Simultaneity) manifold corresponding to the solid phase lattice of the Aether, the substrate of the universe or of the Space-and-Time continuum consists of a nonelectric, nonelectromagnetic and nongravitic radiative form of massfree energy (referred to as free 'latent thermal' or 'antigravitic' aether energy). However, the main body of this energy distribution throughout the cosmos is in a state of secondary superimposition with itself, forming a fluid phase lattice (a liquid Space manifold) where the energetic relations between distinct manifolds or multiplicities are treated as a function of Phase-Space and Phase-Time properties of the Aether. The secondary superimposition process entails - by the folding or collapse of the Phase-Space manifolds - an auto-electrification of the fine structure of massfree energy.
(…)
A model for complex Phase superimposition of more than two sets of manifolds which addresses the kinetic energy minima of cosmological electrons is also proposed. – Aetherometry AS2-17C


… everything else we refer to as 'other forms of energy' are the results of the folding of this very unfolded reality we call Aether. It is the folding that shortens the distances and permits the other physical effects. Most basic to all matter is that which is basic to the envelope of the cosmos itself: the production of Space and Time as properties of energy flow. Before we can talk of any of the other properties - gravitic, electric, thermal, electromagnetic, ionizing, etc. - we first have to talk about the properties of 'latent heat', because it is these that concretely support the continuum of Space and Time. The reason why there is a microwave background is precisely because everywhere there is conversion of totally unfolded, so to speak, pure Space and Time, pure continuity, into folds.Why Speak of an Aether


In the fields of Hematology and Radiation Biology (including Photobiology and Radiobiology) aetherometric breakthroughs include…

In Molecular Biology and System Dynamics, they have yielded a new internal energy function for biological systems, a new treatment of the concept and functions of entropy, and an aethero-dynamic understanding of the folding of polypeptides and the role of latent heat in the catalytic functions of enzymes or allosteric proteins. – Aetherometric Biology

Nice links about folding and aether. Its clear that to a few humans on this planet, the truth is still available if you care enough to drop the baggage and move forward. The concepts of "mass-free" or "inverse-mass" is not clear to most. Yet the dimensions all have inverse properties and one would do well to consider inverse mass, inverse time (frequency), when considering the reality of the universe.

Interesting yes. I'm wondering if this 'folding' of space (massfree, massless) is what accounts for the angular momentum-like aspect of the electron. This peculiar quality has come to be interpreted as "spin" but in actuality there is no billiard ball spinning around at some really fast rate. I recall Blacklight Power's "Orbitsphere Supercurrent":

The bound electron exists as a spherical two-dimensional supercurrent, an extended distribution of charge completely surrounding the nucleus. Unlike a spinning sphere, there is a complex pattern of motion on its surface (indicated by arrows) that give rise to two orthogonal angular momentum vectors that give rise to the phenomenon of electron spin.


The electron is more like a phase-locked 'node' wherein two orthogonal angular momentum vectors are 'folding' over one another. That dynamic is what is being interpreted as "spin". The electron, though fundamental, is a second order effect; a synthesis of something else. That something else undergoes dynamic superimposition (sharing the same 'space'). That would then seem to make the electron - the result of energy being shed in order to maintain relative balance for the "fields", via "wave" action that 'overlap', ‘fold’, or superimpose to produce them.

At some critical value one should have a phase-transition induced by the superimposition. Hence, all electrons would form an electron plasma 'phase-space'. Look at the dynamic here in terms of the central location 'folding': The Electron

He even recognizes the phase-shift. Aetherometry speculates (they caution care here) that the electron may have its equivalent of a type of constantly moving 'subduction' line. Thats interesting considering that you've got two orthogonal angular momentum vectors 'folding' over one another forming a resonant node; the 'surface' of which is composed of the flow of a "Supercurrent". Certainly makes the Sun seem interesting.

I am going to be teaching post graduate classes come the fall. Working on some stuff in my head about getting the work out there on youtube. So I tried an example video.

I ran out of time, but I did release his subluxations. I put him on the table and did two sets of Active Isolated Stretching and we got the adjustment. His cervical ROM was back to normal.
:D

More importantly his posture was more balanced, his head was back over his shoulders, his right shoulder had relaxed, and this integration of the fascia is the hallmark of this work.

huge synestasia...I was reading a blog on Memory Metal and bang it hit me.
Again I believe I am the first one to put this piece of the puzzle together.

I now believe that the fascia has the same properties of Superelasticity, due to the jitterbug abilites of both the cellular cytoskelton, but also the surround crystaline fascia. The Jitterbug is a phase transition of a crystal that is acutally explained via memory metal.

It seems that maybe Memory Metal does have origns of reverse engineering.

I always wondered about the atomic geometry of the jitterbug, now I know.

Order and disorder in collagen fibers allows "the squaring of a circle" in its cyrstaline structure. As the disc center is incombatable with a crystal cubic lattice. The disorder allows the disc to emerage, while the outlying order allows the crystal lattice to remain preserved in the square. How very interesting. We are mainly collagen and the balance between our order and disorder will circle a square.

The jitterbug?
MECHANICAL THERAPY
By
NIKOLA TESLA


In order to convey a clear idea of the significance and revolutionary character of this discovery it is indispensable to make a brief statement regarding ELECTRICAL THERAPY.

Fifty years ago, while investigating high frequency currents developed by me at that time, I observed that they produced certain physiological effects offering new and great possibilities in medical treatment. My first announcement spread like fire and experiments were undertaken by a host of experts here and in other countries. When a famous French physician, Dr. D'Arsonval, declared that he had made the same discovery, a heated controversy relative to priority was started. The French, eager to honor their countryman, made him a member of the Academy, ignoring entirely my earlier publication. Resolved to take steps for vindicating my claim, I went to Paris, where I met Dr. D'Arsonval. His personal charm disarmed me completely and I abandoned my intention, content to rest on the record. It shows that my disclosure antedated his and also that he used my apparatus in his demonstrations. The final judgement is left to posterity.

Since the beginning the growth of the new art and industry has been phenomenal, some manufacturers turning out daily hundreds of sets. Many millions are now in use throughout the world. The currents furnished by them have proved an ideal tonic for the human nerve system. They promote heart action and digestion, induce healthful sleep, rid the skin of destructive exudations and cure colds and fever by the warmth they create. They vivify atrophied or paralyzed parts of the body, allay all kinds of suffering and save annually thousands of lives. Leaders in the profession have assured me that I have done more for humanity by this medical treatment than by all my other discoveries and inventions. Be that as it may, I feel certain that the MECHANICAL THERAPY, which I am about to give to the world, will be of incomparably greater benefit. Its discovery was made accidentally under the following circumstances.

I had installed at the laboratory, 25 South Fifth Avenue, one of my mechanical oscillators with the object of using it in the exact determination of various physical constants. The machine was bolted in vertical position to a platform supported on elastic cushions and, when operated by compressed air, performed minute oscillations absolutely isochronous, that is to say, consuming rigorously equal intervals of time. So perfect was its functioning in this respect that clocks driven by it indicated the hour with astronomical precision. One day, as I was making some observations, I stepped on the platform and the vibrations imparted to it by the machine were transmitted to my body. The sensation experienced was as strange as agreeable, and I asked my assistants to try. They did so and were mystified and pleased like myself. But a few minutes later some of us, who had stayed longer on the platform, felt an unspeakable and pressing necessity which had to be promptly satisfied, and then the stupendous truth dawned upon me. Evidently, these isochronous rapid oscillations stimulated powerfully the peristaltic movements which propel the food-stuffs through the alimentary channels. A means was thus provided whereby their contents can be perfectly regulated and controlled at will, and without the use of drugs, specific remedies or internal applications whatever.

When I began to practice with my assistants MECHANICAL THERAPY we used to finish our meals quickly and rush back to the laboratory. We suffered from dyspepsia and various stomach troubles, biliousness, constipation, flatulence and other disturbances, all natural results of such irregular habit. But only after a week of application, during which I improved the technique and my assistants learned how to take the treatment to their best advantage, all these forms of sickness disappeared as by enchantment and for nearly four years, while the machine was in use, we were all in excellent health. I cured a number of people, among them my great friend Mark Twain whose books saved my life. He came to the laboratory in the worst shape suffering from a variety of distressing and dangerous ailments but in less than two months he regained his old vigor and ability of enjoying life to the fullest extent. Shortly after, a great calamity befell me: my laboratory was destroyed by fire. Nothing was insured and the loss of priceless apparatus and records gave me a terrific shock from which I did not recover for several years. The enforced discontinuance of MECHANICAL THERAPY also caused me deep regret. I had evolved a wonderful remedy for ills of inestimable value to mankind and invented apparatus offering unbounded commercial possibilities but when I came to consider practical introduction I realized that it was entirely unsuitable. It was big, heavy and noisy, called for a continuous supply of oil, part of which was discharged into the room as fine spray; it consumed considerable power and required a number of objectionable accessories. During the succeeding years I made great improvements and finally evolved a design which leaves nothing to be desired. The machine will be very small and light, operate noiselessly without any lubricant, consume a trifling amount of energy and will be, to my knowledge, the most beautiful device ever put on the market. The intention is to exhibit it in action at the occasion of my annual reception in honor of the Press which has been, unfortunately, delayed this year, and I anticipate that it will elicit great interest and receive great publicity. Unless I am grossly mistaken it will be introduced very extensively and, eventually, there will be one in every household.

The practical application of MECHANICAL THERAPY through my oscillators will profoundly affect human life. By insuring perfect regularity of evacuations the body will function better in every respect and life will become ever so much safer and more enjoyable. One of the most important results will be the great reduction--amounting possibly to seventy-five percent--in the number of heart failures, which are mostly caused by some acute upset of the digestive process and normal operation of the stomach. Another vital improvement will be derived from the quickened removal of toxic excretions of organs affected by disease. It is reasonable to expect that through this and other healthful actions ulcers and similar internal lesions or abscesses will be cured and relief might be obtained even in cases of a cancer or other malignant growth. Skilled physicians and surgeons will be able to perform veritable miracles with such oscillations. They stimulate strongly the liver, spleen, kidneys, bladder and other organs and by these desirable actions they must contribute not a little to well being. Persons suffering from anemia of any form will be especially helped by the treatment. But the greatest benefit will be derived from it by women who will be able to reduce without the usual tantalizing abstinences, privation, sacrifice of time and money and torture they have to endure. They will improve much in appearance, acquire clear eyes and complexions and it may be safely predicted that long continued treatment will bring forth feminine beauty never seen before. It is not to be forgotten that the elimination of countless drugs, patent medicines and specific remedies of all kinds taken internally, by which millions of people doom themselves to an early grave, will be of untold good to humanity.
