systems are made up of two sols, two waters,
an inner (intracellular) and
an outer (extracellular fluid compartment)
separated by cell walls, lipid
membranes or "plasma membranes".
The lipid "plasma" membranes also help structure the intracellular space
as a "reticulum" of membranes in which things happen
like the nucleus and mitochondria).
living systems, tissues, are a network of membranes and
do the lipid membranes vibrate?
they pulse ions
between the waters
(the inside and outside waters)
The intracellular waters have K+ Mg++ PO4---
The extracellular compartment
has Na+ Ca++ Cl-
A sodium potassium ATPase "pump" moves Na+ out
of and K+ into the cell
and this creates an electrical potential across the
Then the cell responds to the world by letting sodium back in
and potassium out
so there is an electrical, ionic pulsing
along the membrane
systems, cells, are like the inner stem world
the inner dimensions, in that
energymatter exists there as membranes.
the living world is (in part) membranous
planar lipid membranes - 2D
and the neural nets of the
are planar matrices
membranes of pulsing electric potentials.
(they do much of their analysis, computation,
in planar fields, i.e. visual
and audition (just because the cortex is
a planar matrix)
the inner stem world
where matterenergy is membranous
all these vibrating pulsing membranes
which resonate where?
