Biological Real Estate
Mr. Proton and his wife, Mrs. Neutron, need a place to live.
So they buy an empty space surrounded by walls and a roof, and they call it their house.
What makes up the walls?
The house is called … ATOM.
Mr. Proton has a positive electrical charge and the electrons have a negative electrical charge.
Mrs. Neutron doesn’t have a charge. She just gets a charge out of watching the play of Yin (negative) and Yang (positive).
The atom needs a protected place to exist.
It lives on property called front yard and back yard surrounded by a fence or hedge.
The house is the atom and the yard is the molecule.
The center is always more positive (Yang) than the perimeter (Yin).
Yang is for construction, and Yin is for fencing and defense.
You see where this is going?
Physical reality starts from a dot and gets larger in ever-expanding circles or spheres.
The property called yard is protected by a neighborhood, possibly a gated community.
The neighborhood is protected by a city (the post office is Yang, and the city limits are Yin).
The city is protected by a county.
The county is protected by a state in the U.S. or a province in Canada.
The state is protected by a country.
The country is protected by a region or commonwealth.
The region is protected by a United Nations (for better or for worse), united against space aliens such as the ones in Starship Troopers.
We’ve just made the journey from he subatomic level to the fence/defense level called … SKIN.
This journey from “As Within, So Without” is conveniently divided into seven levels called the Periodic Table of the Elements.
What Period of the Periodic Table does your supplement live on?
It’s important to know.
The Periodic Chart of the Elements is more correctly illustrated as a bull’s eye made of seven circles.
The tiny red circle in the middle of the bull’s eye represents the 7th Period of the Periodic Table (Primary Terrain).
The second white circle surrounding the first circle represents the 6th Period (Genomic Terrain).
The black circle (the third one from the middle) surrounding that white circle (the second one from the middle) represents the 5th Period (Organellar Terrain).
The white circle (the fourth one from the middle) surrounding that black circle (the third one from the middle) represents the 4th Period (Cellular Terrain).
The black circle (the fifth one from the middle) surrounding that white circle (the fourth one from the middle) represents the 3rd Period (Tissular and Humoral Terrain).
The white circle (the sixth one from the middle) surrounding that black circle (the fifth one from the middle) represents the 2nd Period (Organic Terrain; the total organism as an entity, including blood, skin, and air).
The black outermost circle (the seventh one from the middle) surrounding that white circle (the sixth one from the middle) represents the 1st Period of the Periodic Chart of the Elements (Systemic Terrain, including blood, sweat, saliva, and urine values outside the body).
Atom Bergstrom (Not Cancer…CANCEL, 1989. 2009) wrote …
“A proton is electropositive in relationship to the more electronegative electrons it captures. This pattern evolves in complexity and size, a smaller electropositive entity capturing a larger more electronegative entity as its environment, and so on up the line in evolution, not unlike a Russian nesting doll.”
