Lawsonomy Volume One
PENETRABILITY causes all substances to move in currents along the line of least resistance. These currents run from Pressure to Suction Points.
There must be at the end of every current an outlet into space containing lesser density than the substance of which the current is composed.
When solid food is drawn into the mouth of man the first step towards absorption is the reconstruction of its mass formation into a flowing current that will pass along the line of the least resistance.
This reconstruction process is accomplished by the Suction of the mouth, the pressure of the jaws, and the mixture with saliva which turns it into a pulpy, pliable form.
In every formation currents pass through tubes or pores from ingress to egress.
The first tube that this pulpy current of nourishment is able to flow through on its way to nutrition is the throat which leads from the back of the mouth to the esophagus through which it is drawn to the stomach.
The stomach is another Suction station that is subordinate to the center of Suctionthe heart.
The power of the Earth's Suction aids to some extent the power of man's Suction in drawing the food downward to the stomach when man stands or sits upright.
But to prove that man's power of Suction is greater than the Earth's power of Suction, insofar as it relates to the interior of man, a human being can stand on its head and draw water upward to the stomach by the power of internal Suction as against the opposite pull of the Earth's Suction.
That also goes to prove that there is no such thing as direction in Space and that the movement of all things is regulated by Suction and Pressure in their relation to Penetrability.
Half way between two Suction centers of equal power a mass formation will remain stationary in space containing lesser density.
On its way to the stomach the food is also pushed along by Pressure of the throat and esophagus, as well as being pulled by Suction.
The trachea, a tube through which currents of air are drawn into the lungs, situated just in front of the esophagus, also has an opening into the throat, so in order to prevent food from being drawn into the lungs when man breathes an elastic lidthe epiglottismoving back and forth with each gulp covers the entrance of the trachea when food passes, and leaves it open when man breathes.
The stomach, an elastic-like pouch just below the ribs and partly towards the left side of the body, has an outside covering composed principally of muscular fibers running in all directions which allow it to expand when food is drawn into it and contract when food is squeezed out of it.
When too much food is put into this pouch it expands to an abnormal size and a continuous oversupply of food will stretch it to such proportions that it will require a constant over supply of food to satisfy the increased and abnormal Suction demand created by the extra-size internal space so developed.
This abnormal expansion of the stomach causes a corresponding Pressure upon other internal parts of the body which contracts and nullifies to some extent their power to act naturally.
The extra food also puts a strain upon the system to eject it, and the surplus that cannot be ejected through the natural channels, either turns into useless fat or else poisons the system with obnoxious gases which penetrate everywhere and pass out of the body as best they can in putrid odors.
The inside lining of the stomach contains numberless minute glands from which are drawn the gastric juices that are mixed with the pulpy mass that comes from the mouth in currents through the throat and esophagus.
This mixture is churned about through the action of Suction and Pressure which causes expansion and contraction of the muscular fibers until a grey, slimy mass known as chyme has been formed.
As the food is drawn and squeezed about in the stomach by alternating Suction and Pressure movements, the valve controlling the opening into the intestines, opens and closes at intervals, which allows the chyme to be drawn into the intestines. After three or four hours the stomach is then left empty.
Meals should not be eaten more often than six hours apart, for the stomach, when empty should be given a rest for an hour or two.
After churning a mass of food for several hours the muscles of the stomach require time for relaxation and recuperation.
It is beneficial to flush the stomach when empty with two or three glasses of warm water.
Digestion is best when food and drink are taken into the stomach at the same temperature as the heat of the body.
From the stomach the chyme is drawn as a current into a long coiled tube which occupies most of the abdomen below the stomach and known as the intestines or bowels.
The intestine which connects with the stomach is about twenty feet long and from one to two inches in diameter. It empties into another intestine about four feet long and two and one-half inches in diameter.
When in the intestines the food undergoes another change by being mixed with bile and pancreatic fluids.
The bile is drawn to the intestines in currents through tubes connecting with the liver which lies a little above and to the right of the stomach. When digestion is not taking place this bile is held in the gall bladder until needed.
The pancreas is a long, thin gland lying just below the stomach that furnishes the pancreatic fluid.
Foods that have not been dissolved by the salivary and gastric juices are finally made liquid through mixture with the bile and pancreatic fluids.
For instance, starch is dissolved and changed into sugar when mixed with saliva. If pieces of starchy foods untouched by saliva reach the stomach, however, they are passed along to the intestines unchanged by the gastric juices, but are then changed to sugar by mixture with the pancreatic fluid.
The pancreatic fluid also dissolves any proteins that pass through the stomach in a solid state.
Then again, the gastric juices of the stomach only dissolve the little sacs that hold fat, but do not dissolve the fat itself. The pancreatic fluid breaks fat up in numberless microscopic drops which mix with the other substances and give the whole conglomeration the appearance of thick milk.
This last mixture is called chyle and its digested parts are what the blood absorbs for distribution among the different cells of the body.
Food that is not digested cannot be drawn into the blood, so the lack of digestion means a lack of nourishment, no matter how much food is eaten.
Therefore, it is important to keep the digestive organs in good order by giving to each the proper work to do. The stomach and intestines must not be expected to do the work of the teeth, nor should they be crowded with more food than the system needs. Neither should food be put into them, the elements of which can in no way harmonize with the composition of the protoplasmic cells of the body.
The long coiled intestine which holds the chyle is held together by the mesentery membrane which is wrapped about it in numerous folds.
The inside of the mesentery membrane is lined with innumerable small projections called villi.
Villi are covered with tiny cells that form the epithelium and contain on the inside a great many very small blood vessels, some of which bring blood to the intestines and some of which take the blood away again.
As the chyle passes along, the villi absorb the digested food and reject the undigested food which goes to make up waste matter.
After the digested food is drawn into the villus the dissolved sugars, proteins, salts and water are taken by the blood vessels in currents to the liver, man's storehouse for food, while the fat is taken by the lymph vessels in currents and emptied into one of the large blood vessels in the neck.
As the chyle is passed through the intestines the undigested food and excretions not needed are forced out of the body by Internal Pressure.
Thus it is shown in this chapter that the food of man is passed from ingress to egress through the main food currents along the line of the least resistance in conformity with the law of Penetrability in which solid substances were first made penetrable and then drawn by Suction and pushed by Pressure at various stages until reaching the terminal and the remains thereof were drawn again into space of lesser densitythe air.
In succeeding chapters I will show further how this law works in other currents of the body.
In a healthy body food passed properly through the main channel should not contain enough odor to be noticeable by the olfactory organs a few feet away.
It is essential for good health that this waste matter be evacuated at least once or twice each day.
Unless there are points of egress for surplus substances to pass through in any formation or sufficient Pressure from without to withstand it, a body will explode from internal Pressure.
