Lawsonomy Volume One
Man is a formation. He is a combination of substances of different density drawn together by Suction and squeezed apart by Pressure. His birth, life and death is caused by the same Law of Movement that causes the birth, life and death of every formation.
Every move man makes, every act, no matter if made by his entire body or any part thereof, is the result of Suction and Pressure.
If a man takes food into his stomach, it is accomplished by Suction; if he evacuates waste matter it is caused by Pressure.
If the heart of man draws blood from the entire body, it is accomplished by Suction; when the heart pushes back that same blood throughout the body, it is caused by Pressure.
When the muscles of man expand, such expansion is accomplished by Suction; when the muscles of man contract, such contraction is caused by Pressure.
There is no movement made by man during his physical life that is not caused by Suction and Pressure.
We know more about man than we know about anything else, but still our knowledge concerning him is limited.
What little we know about man we owe to the patient, practical experimenters who have preceded us.
To those who base their studies and experiments upon the law of Penetrability in the future will come the greatest successes and honors.
It takes great strength and courage, however, to stretch beyond old rules, theories and myths, but man will be able to do it.
Each cell of a human body is created according to the same law that I outlined in the Chapter on Formations. A cell is a formation.
Space with lesser density is created within the structure of man by Suction which is caused by movement of the structure and into this space with lesser density Suction draws substances of greater density in a swirling movement that builds up a new formation or cell of the structure of which it is a part.
The substances which enter into and maintain new cells must be prepared for that purpose and this preparation is accomplished by the aid of various organs which dissolve solid substances into liquid and gaseous forms and mix them together for assimilation.
From the time food enters the mouth of man until it reaches the cell it feeds, it is drawn along through various currents by the power of Suction. From the time waste gases leave the cells of man until they are thrown out of the mouth, nostrils or other orifices or pores they are pushed along in currents by the power of Pressure. There are no other methods of movement.
Currents of many kinds and proportions are constantly flowing in every direction through the body of man and these currents are all moved between terminals by Suction and Pressure.
The center of Suction and Pressure of man is the heart which is the medium through which internal Suction and Pressure power of the entire system is maintained.
This internal Suction and Pressure system in man is maintained by an elaborate network of tubes of various proportions through which currents of blood are continuously flowing.
Through one set of tubes known as arteries, formations known as corpuscles, filled with oxygen, drawn from the lungs, and food substances drawn from the intestines, flow in currents of blood moved by Suction and Pressure to the cells that need them.
Through another set of tubes, the veins, these corpuscles filled with waste gases discharged from the cells are moved to the heart and lungs in currents of blood by Suction and Pressure, and forced out of the body in currents of gases that pass through the trachea, mouth, and nostrils.
It has been stated that Science does not know the cause of capillary action. That is easily understood through knowledge of Penetrability.
Man has been taught heretofore that blood circulation is caused by a pumping movement of the heart, but man has not been given the full facts of the case.
Blood cannot be pumped through the body of man by the heart unless it is first drawn to the heart from all parts of the body by Suction.
Neither can the heart push the blood back into all parts of the body again after it has been drawn to it by Suction unless at the terminal of every current there is a Suction point to attract it.
In fact, the heart could not pump the blood at all if it were not for the innumerable Suction and Pressure points scattered all over the system.
There must be a Suction point at the end of each blood current that draws the blood into Space of lesser density.
So at the end of each blood current there is a minute Suction and Pressure station which not only draws the blood into it but also squeezes it out again, and that is the cause of capillary action.
This minute Suction and Pressure station is stirred to action by movement of the section in which it is located.
The blood corpuscles drawn into this station by Suction discharge their cargoes of food, fuel and oxygen, reload with waste matter and are then drawn back to the heart by Suction with the aid of the Pressure established at the capillary stations.
Blood circulation, therefore, is caused by Suction and Pressure movements of the heart plus Suction and Pressure movements of millions of capillary stations scattered all over the human system.
In order for currents to move at all they must have both Pressure and Suction points.
In the blood circulation of man the heart acts as a Pressure point and the capillary stations as Suction points for the currents passing through the arteries; and reversing the action, the capillary stations act as Pressure points and the heart as the Suction point for the current passing through the veins.
The power in both Suction and Pressure exerted by the heart in blood circulation is equalized by the combined Suction and Pressure power exerted by the millions of capillary stations throughout the entire system.
When movement is discontinued by any part of the body, action stops in that part, and there is no power of Suction to draw the blood to it, consequently the building of new cells and tissues ends.
That part of man which is moved the most will create the most Suction power and thereby draw to it the largest quantity of blood and sustaining substances.
Drawing blood to a part of the body by increased action and Suction not only feeds the cells that are there with sustaining substances but through the combining influences of the substances deposited expands and causes additional space with lesser density which draw and organize the substances into new cells.
New cells add to the growth of the tissue which will continue to extend itself as long as action, Space, Suction and nourishment are provided.
The human cells are distinct formations. They are little worlds in themselves with centers of Suction and Pressure, and currents and formations moving about within them in every direction. They are populated with as many different forms of minute living creatures as the Earth is populated with different species.
These cells with their minute populations will continue their activities as long as the tissue of which they are a part continues its activity.
The internal swirl of man goes on as long as the Suction and Pressure terminals of the blood currents are properly maintained.
As movement of the body or its parts decrease, Suction and Pressure points at the ends of the capillaries recede, causing shrinkage and loss of pull and push.
The loss of pull and push in millions of capillary terminals causes a corresponding lack of pull and push by the heart, with a consequent shrinkage of the tissues and muscles of the heart and a general weakening of the entire structure of man.
When man has become weakened to such an extent that the blood currents will no longer move properly between the Suction and Pressure terminals, he can no longer move and his physical life ends.
Although the heart is the center of Suction and Pressure of the human formation, other important organs and functions are necessary to maintain life and action within it.
Teeth are needed to masticate food; glands are needed to dissolve the food that is eaten; stomach and intestines are needed to mix the different substances into digestible form for assimilation; bones are needed to give rigidity to the body; muscles are needed to move the body and its parts; a liver is needed as a storehouse of life-giving substances; kidneys are needed to aid in the elimination of waste products; skin is needed for a covering for the body; lungs are needed to draw oxygen to the blood and push out of the system waste gases.
In my book MANLIFE, published in 1923, I introduced the Law of Penetrability into physiology to show how a human being could increase his efficiency and length of life by following certain rules in his everyday life. I repeat much of what I wrote in Manlife in this work. In fact some things I wrote in this book I wrote in other publications as far back as the year of 1904.
Not only must the internal organization of man be so constituted that it can draw into itself new substances and prepare them for assimilation and also eject waste matter, but it must also be able to regulate its own density so that the whole body can move about from place to place.
Man is drawn to the crust of the Earth by the power of Suction within the Earth, which attracts certain substances to it.
Man must therefore build himself of a certain density that can be moved away from the crust of the Earth and also create the power within to lift himself away from the Earth.
This is accomplished by building his bones and muscles of substances which afford the maximum strength to the minimum density and still maintain certain weight that will enable him to penetrate the air in which he is immersed.
Therefore man must balance himself by internal Suction to offset the Earth's Suction, and by internal Pressure to offset the external Pressure of the atmosphere.
Man is able to move his body about, first, because he can penetrate the air in which he is immersed, second, because his internal power of Pressure as developed within his muscular system is sufficient to push his body momentarily away from the Earth and third, because the Earth's Suction is sufficient to pull him back to its crust again.
When man is properly balanced he is able to stand in an upright position without moving in any direction, but if he extends the upper part of his body forward beyond the line of balance the Suction of the Earth will draw the upper part of his body downward and if he does not resist this pull he will fall flat upon the ground.
But man resists the pull of the Earth's Suction through internal muscular pressure by pushing one foot and leg forward to act as a prop and hold up the weight of his body and then by extending the upper part of his body still further forward and allowing the Earth's Suction to continue to draw him downward and then by pushing his other foot forward to prop him up again he has accomplished an act that has moved him away from his original position.
By continuing to extend his body forward and by continuing to prop his body against the fall with his feet and legs, man moves along from place to place, drawn by the Earth's Suction and kept balanced and in action by internal Pressure of his muscular system.
