Levels 4-7 of the Model describe the relationships of the subjects of study from chemical biology to psychology. The hierarchical nature of the Model has its first major differentiation. This is the first quad group of levels that is positioned between triads.
Level 4: Organelle and Cytoplasm
Organelle ⇒ Cytoplasm
The inorganic/organic divide has been passed, and the first simple organisms start to appear. The organic molecules through the lattices of genetic codes start forming chromosomes in the nuclei and other organelles within cytoplasm, which functions like ocean plasma or the “primeval soup.” Organelles that escaped sharing genetic information within cytoplasm and developed their own genetic codes became the first viruses. Yet even viruses are dependent on water in a cytoplasm for life. Organelles, on the other hand, cooperated and bounded together into more complex structures known as cells and single-celled organisms.
Level 5: Cell and Matrix
Cell ⇒ Matrix
Once cytoplasm was bounded with cellular membrane, it became a cell or a cellular organism, such as amoeboid protist. Such cells–that did not cooperate similar to organelles in order to maintain their structured organic environment as a matrix–became bacteria. Bacteria are cellular organisms that drew the most dependency from larger collections of organisms, but themselves did not contribute in order to become full-fledged members of such complex structures. Bacteria are the level 5 equivalent of viruses. In contrast, normal cells within their implied bio-matrices started forming tissues and also differentiating themselves into a new form of wholeness.
Level 6: Tissue and Pulse
Tissue ⇒ Pulse
When separated from their plants, fruits are collections of tissues. When such tissues have no pulse to maintain their freshness, since they are cut off from natural auras, decomposition of a fruit becomes more explicit and leads to a drop to lower levels. Larger and more complex organisms have a variety of tissues in them. These tissues can be bone, blood, or nerve, among others. These tissues exist dynamically within standing-wave patterns. Such bio-waves are electromagnetic in nature. Those tissues that interfere with bio-waves are cancerous. A magnetic field is induced by blood flow in the circulatory system, generating a heart pulse, changes in which directly transform into our emotions. Similarly, a nervous tissue is alive when neurological impulses fire and change, thus giving rise to our thoughts that in turn affect other changes. While specific pulses of the circulatory system can be visualized as slices containing blood cells, impulses are surges that circulate through nerves, which are connected by nervous endings. These elaborate systems are administered by centers known as organs, which they also help form.
Level 7: Organ and Aura
Organ ⇒ Aura
The fields and their organs are indeed inseparable and interdependent. The heart and the brain are both powerful organs. Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., the Director of Research at the Institute of HeartMath, writes in one of his articles: “The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. The electrical field as measured in an electrocardiogram (ECG) is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves recorded in an electroencephalogram (EEG)” (qtd. in “The Energetic Heart Is Unfolding”). Although during embryo’s development the heart forms after the brain, the heart actually starts functioning before the brain.
I have already written about the roles auras play in our bodies in the post on the combined Randian and Aristotelian epistemology. I have also written about relations of our organs to auras in theory of relations in the post on ethics. Nonetheless I will elaborate further on this important topic. Understanding this level is crucial for our evolution and progress as depicted in the second triad of epistemological levels following this interstitial quad.
Each organ forms on the foundation of interrelationships of tissues within pulses. The main two organs that serve functions of a dipole in our bodies are: heart and brain. These organs regulate and co-form with many other tissues, and they exist within their respective bio-fields: soul and mind, which are generally called here “auras,” etymologically meaning “breath,” “wind,” or surrounding “air.” Other organs make up many other major and minor systems and also have unique frequencies, since vibratory phenomena cover all tissues. A more sophisticated example among the peripheral organs is the effect of the interstitial cell of Cajal from stomach and the digestive system.
As you can see, every organ in our bodies is important, but especially important are our hearts and brains. It is interesting to note that ascidians, in particular Pyura Chilensis (see the video), have hearts and other organs but, although they have some nervous tissues, have not developed brains. Such animals are not rocks, but they have no bodies, so they exist on level 7. Facts such as these help us realize the advantages of having a complete set of organs thus allowing unconstrained physical movement in an environment as well as complex intellectual and emotional processes from the development of auras. Psychology studies how we can use our brains and hearts best in order to help us live more fulfilling lives, neurological sciences help us understand the relationship of brains to minds, and medicine and anatomy deal with organs and tissues in general.
Nonetheless, it is dangerous to become trapped in these levels and in one’s mind, as some philosophers, such as Immanuel Kant, had done. This descend from the reality of environment to the reality of aura causes disintegration and over-materialization in human life and conduct. Pointing in this direction–down below–has the consequence of dropping in reality’s perception and fragmenting into particle sensations. Such fragmentation, caused by materialism, ultimately results in Nonexistence.
