How you can imagine a cell system

The American cell biologist Bruce H. Lipton, Ph. D., describes the development of the cell system in his US best-seller "Intelligent cells" as follows: 


Cells: A cell is the smallest unity of a living being in the biology and is called the „basic component of the life“. All living organisms are built up from single cells: from the tiny protozoons, the amebas, up to the human being who show an enormous complexity of cell communities. The tiny ameba consists of one single cell which is an organism for itself; however, the human being is built out of about 60 billons cells, where every single cell depends on the neighbouring cells. 


What can the cells teach to us about the survival in the nature? Cells are clever, because they are completely filled by their sense and purpose. They strive actively for an environment, which improves their survival, and avoid toxic and hostile life situations. In accordance with the human being, single cells also react to thousands of environmental stimuli. According to an analysis of these data the cell chooses adequate behavioral reactions to protect their survival. Single cells are also able to learn by the experiences with their surroundings, to store cellular recollections and to transmit this to their descendants. In addition this cell must form a gene, which serves as a original to generate a special anti-body protein.


Evolution: In the course of the evolution the cells maximised their perception abilities. To perceive more and to increase with it the likelyhood of their survival, the cells gathered first in the form of colonies and later in the form of high organised cell communities. The multicellular organisms assigned their physiological functions to specified cell associations who formed then the organs and tissues of the body. In common organisation they form the intelligent data processing of the cell membrane, the brain of the cell, with the specified cells of the nervous system and immune system. 


Just about 700 million years before, the cells recognised an advantage to unite to the narrowly attached multicellular communities, which we call plants and animals. The co-ordinating signal molecules of the freely living protozoons were also used by these new closed communities. While they exactly adjusted the releasing and the distribution of these steering signal molecules, the cell communities could co-ordinate their functions and operate as a living being. In the more primitive multicellular organisms which still not have trained a nervous system, these signal molecules fulfil a sort of elementary "thinking", while they co-ordinate the information between the cells. In such organisms every cell perceives the environmental stimuli and tunes their behaviour to it.   


When the cell communities became bigger and more complicated, a new solution had to be found for it. In a closed community every cell cannot simply do what she wants. The community can operate with success only if all partners get involved in a common plan. In the multicellular animals every single cell can "see" what proceeds immediately beyond her own "skin", but she has no perception of that what happens in some distance or even beyond the whole organism. The complicated behavioral controls, which a mulitcellular organism needs to the survival, lies in the central data processing.


Decision taking authority of the brain: When more complicated living beings developed, specialized cells undertook to controll and organise the flow of information of signal molecules that steer the behaviour. These cells formed a widespread nervous network and a central processing place, the brain. The function of the brain consists in co-ordinating within the community the exchange between the signal molecules. Logically every cell must submit to the informed decisions of the highest perception authority in a cell community - the brain. The brain controls the behaviour of the body cells and they together in the form of cell communities our health. 


Control function of the nervous system: The nervous system has the task to pass the environmental stimuli perceived by the sensory organs to the brain and to coordinate the behaviour of the other cells according to the instructions of the brain in the gigantic community. These are all nerve cells in a body which steer all bodily functions in interaction with the hormones. It has the ability of stimuli perception, synaptic efficacies and stimuli processing. 


Emotions - the language of the cells: In more developed, conscious life forms, the brain developed a specialisation which allowed it to the whole system to tune on its regulatory signals. The evolution of the limbic system developed a unique mechanism which translated the chemical communication signals into emotions, which could be perceived from all cells of the community. In our consciousness we find out these signals as emotions. The consciousness perceives not only the flow of the coordinating cell signals, it also can generate emotions which manifest themselves in the nervous system in the form of controlled emission of regulatory signals.  


The human mind is not only in the head, it is distributed by signal molecules within the whole body. Emotions do not only originate from a feedback of the environmental information of the body. The human mind also can generate "feeling molecules" by the brain and verlay the system with it. Thus the adequate application of the consciousness can let recover an ill body, while an immoderate control of the feelings can turn a healthy body into illness.  


Which meaning has the supply of nutrients in the cell system 

In the biological body of the human being with his unique cell system run off varied biochemical metabolisms, which are responsible for the steady renewal of the cell structures and for the stability of the overall system body. The quality of the nutrient supply of the cells is decisive which action alternatives the cell system has to develop a perfect and healthy body.
