The Spark of Life
Lightning strikes the Earth over 1,000 times a second. These electron bolts from the blue are five times hotter than the Sun, surging from sky to soil in split seconds. Scientists believe lightning ionized simple molecules in earth's primeval ocean to synthesize the first amino acids--life's basic chemical building blocks. Thus, Heaven's fire was captured in early Earth's waters to give rise to life.
Electrolytes begin as minerals--the inorganic, hard rock of our planet. Of the major types of nutrients--mineral, carbohydrate, protein, and oils--minerals came first. They existed on Earth before plants or animals--before sugars or amino acids. These simple elements can't be synthesized by plant, animal or human, but must be consumed from the dust and stones in soil. There are no substitutes for these essential elemental nutrients. Biology turns stones into bones. Our human body is 99.5% hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen--only four light-weight elements. The other 0.5% is 20 other elements, most of which form our hard, dense skeleton. Being the least, lowest and simplest of all nutrients, the mineral elements are also the most taken for granted. The obvious--overlooked once again. And while humans don't eat rocks, we can't live without minerals, which must be supplied continuously by food. Minerals are metallic elements, but most metals have so much charge, they are rarely found as pure elements. Instead, they readily react chemically with other atoms to form oxides, chlorides, sulfides, sulfates, silicates, carbonates, etc. Thus,metal becomes mineral as the first step to becoming biology. The metal atoms in minerals are the centers of charge in large molecules that form cells and living tissues.The metal elements coordinate and direct the flow of electrons, reactions between atoms, strength of membranes, and action of enzymes in biological life. An electric current is a stream of electrons through subatomic space. Copper is the conductor of choice for electricity, although other metals will work, too. A spark is a burst of this electric fire made visible in a massive discharge of electrons in air--miniature lightning. Atoms react chemically by exchanging electrons. How atoms share, pair, pass around, circulate, and store electrons decides how ions form, atoms bond, molecules are made, carbons chain, cells and hormones communicate.
An ion is an atom that gains or loses one or more electrons. Since such an atom then has an excess or shortage of electrons in outer orbitals circling around the nucleus, an ion has electric charge. This gives ions the essential energy needed to power chemical reactions. Some elements--mostly metals--easily release electrons to have a positive charge: a cation (+). Others capture extra electrons to acquire negative charge: an anion (-). For example, Sodium (Na), one of the lightest metals, easily gives up the single, unpaired electron in its outer-most orbital to become a cation (Na+). But its positive charge is so strong that it rapidly reacts and bonds with other atoms. Tossed in water, a pure pellet reacts with such quick vigor that it explodes with a loud, violent "pop!" So, we seldom encounter sodium as pure metal, only as its mineral salts. So too, most metals react with oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, chlorine, etc., to become minerals. These crystal chemicals become Earth's bedrock, boulders, stone, soil, sand, silt, salt, clay, dirt, and dust.
Salt of the Earth
Nature and biology are too delicate for the extreme energy concentrated in mineral salts, so cellular chemistry employs gentler ways to exchange electrons and empower reactions. In the simple chemistry of inorganic minerals, an electrolyte is an ionic substance which dissolves in water. These ions-in-solution are valuable for their effects on water's electrical properties. Most often, they increase water's ability to pass an electric current, or store electric charge. Simple electrolytes can be three types: acid (+), base (-), salt (+ and - or neutral). These three classes of ionic chemicals are interrelated by a chemical cross. In this most fundamental reaction, acid and base unite to form salt and water. Acid and base are polar, with opposite ionic charge, but salt--with both cations and anions--is neutral. Salt is chemical fire. Its corrosive appetite is fed by metals, whose exchange of electrons fuels chemical reactions. Every enzyme requires an electrolyte as its key component. Without this electric spark, there can be no taste, or smell, or sight. No sensation, or motion, or light. And no life. Even slight alterations in concentrations of ionic chemicals in our body fluids will disturb vital cell functions. For example, low potassium ions cause general muscle paralysis, while high levels create weak, irregular heartbeats. Therefore, our body has evolved with multiple methods to maintain stable, constant levels of electrolytes in blood, lymph and all other body fluids.
A primary purpose of kidneys is to balance electrolytes in blood. This pair of organs filters blood to neutralize excess acids and alkalis, then excrete them as salts and water in urine. In essence, kidney function is electric, not merely chemical. Minerals are transformed into a special state by bacteria, and acquire an added energy force. If you try to measure it, it's not detectable. This force isn't a mystery, but is subtle beyond man's most sensitive instruments; its characteristic is measured as parts per million of H+ ions, and is rated on a 0-to-14 logarithmic scale in which 7.0 is neutral. Minerals change form to become energized like plasma--living water, in complex, stable, yet changing states of charge. The medical term for the fluid in blood is plasma. And in physics, plasma is the fourth state of matter--an ionized, electrified state. There are about 100 trillion cells in the human body. Each cell is a tiny drop of water enclosed in a bubble of oily membrane. A cell membrane is a very thin film--a double layer of lipids--of fatty acid hydrocarbons--reinforced by cholesterol, collagen and proteins. Lipids form a very minute, positively charged, barrier that insulates water in a cell from waters all around it. The process of getting nutrients absorbed into cells--across the cell wall matrix--is termed biovection. This cell wall also blocks movement of electrons and ions. So a cell can store an electric charge. Each cell is a biological battery!
The force between the inside and outside cell wall is a liquid pressure that's sustained by electrolytes. Minerals are needed to keep this battery in a cell going, and to enable cells to hold a charge. Without minerals--without the right electrolytes in correct ratios--cells can't maintain this inner-outer pressure; they weaken, become vulnerable to parasites--even die. The cell membrane is a key element in immunity. If our body was a car, electrolytes would be the battery and spark plugs. A car won't run without a battery and spark plugs. Without these living waters, we can't be healthy. And if we don't recharge our biological battery, we're as worthless as a car with a dead battery. Ancient peoples inhabited tropic and sub tropic regions of Earth, and walked on moist grasses and soil every morning. This cleansed their kidneys via the largest pores of the body--the soles of the feet. But also, contact with moist soil recharged their electrolyte batteries. Remember, lightning occurs constantly all over the planet. Earth itself spins inside a huge electromagnetic field. Every living thing participates in this electromagnetic activity. Some of that charge is transferred into our body when our naked skin touches moist Earth or bare rock. Modern humans are missing this daily experience of being grounded in direct electrolytic link to moist soil. Theoretically, if we are exceptionally healthy, with good mineral content, our body can create this electromagnetic energy within itself. Not only our bodies, but our culture is rapidly losing its last links to Nature as biology, ecology, geology--and spirit.
Electrolytes supply the spark of life to cells. They aren't fuel that is burned to provide power. Rather, like a spark in a car engine, they are the electric fire that ignites every chemical reaction in a cell. They deliver electrons where needed for reactions, and store charge between events. Electrolytes strengthen every cell, gland and organ; they do many important things, and make everything work better. Electrolytes sustain the most critical chemical balance in the body: pH--the acid-base balance.This delicate chemical condition determines how electrons are available for reactions. Too much positive charge from acids (+) creates an inability to circulate electrons. Excess anions (-) of an alkaline state will overcharge a cell or organism. Life is a balancing act, so most biological processes need neutral--or slightly alkaline--pH to assure a steady supply of electrons. Our blood remains very close to 6.45 pH, and if it changes by 0.1, we can die. Electrolytes not only help restore neutral pH balance, they also act as buffers that resist any change in pH. The neutral factor means that if we eat something that's too acid or too alkaline, our body can prevent a change in pH.
A healthy body with electrolytes will temporarily neutralize these extremes. Like trees dying on mountain tops from acid rain, intestinal microflora wilt and weaken if the pH of their environment changes. When the pH of cell water becomes too acid, proteins change their shape, and many enzymes no longer function. Much modern illness is due to disturbed pH. Infections, yeasts, parasites, and worms all thrive in acid pH. Cancer and arthritis are two of many everyday diseases encouraged and aggravated, if not caused by inability to sustain stable, neutral pH, and thus cell membrane integrity. Chronic excess acids force our body to use sodium stored in the stomach lining, liver and joints, and calcium stored in teeth and bones to neutralize acids. Our poor, depleted soils can't supply minerals needed for electrolytes, while refining and processing remove even more minerals, so we can't generate the electromagnetic charge. No matter how much supplement we take, calcium can't adhere to bone matrix without this electromagnetic force.
A cell's most critical chore is to maintain the integrity of the cell membrane--the inner-outer pressure balance at a cell wall to separate cell from not-cell. This double-layer of lipids is in constant motion, fed by electrolytes. A strong membrane is a cell's first line of defense--the frontline of the immune system. Without electrolytes, this barrier can't be sustained; it weakens, and an unwanted substance can invade the cell. Trace element electrolytes are key catalysts in thousands of enzymes needed by cells to make amino acids, proteins, and other organic molecules. When electrolytes form, they generate more electrochemical activity, attract more minerals, capture more charge. Charge control is the key to enzymes that allow biochemical reactions to occur rapidly, selectively, precisely. As an example, zinc is used in over 20 enzyme systems. The pancreas produces enzymes and acids to break food down in digestion. Drinking electrolytes thirty minutes before a meal moistens and recharges soft tissues lining the digestive tract. Then, when you eat, membranes and micro-organisms are ready to digest and absorb food. But further, electrolytes supply the pancreas with new ions to make more digestive enzymes. Electrolytes are also critical to nerves--both individually, and for the collective coordination of the entire nervous system. Nerve impulses are transmitted as an exchange of sodium and potassium ions at the nerve membrane. A nerve membrane is encased in long strands of protein with a calcium ion attached at the end of each strand. Without this impulse of ion charge, there can be no taste, no smell, no sight, no sensation, no awareness. Hormones, vitamins and enzymes which activate, regulate and synchronize nerve action all require a mineral ion as a key element in their reactive structure, and for their synthesis.
Cobalt is needed by the pineal gland to make melatonin, the hormone which regulates neurological function to determine the level of sleep or wakefulness. This touches only a few of the many profound, essential roles of these mineral ions in blood chemistry, cell biology, human physiology, brain psychology--and global ecology.Electrolytes are the key to unlock energy flow in a cell. They strike the sparks of electric fire that make life happen. The amount of cobalt we need fits on the head of a pin. Yet, if we don't have it, we die. This trace of a trace element has only one purpose: Vitamin B12, a nutrient needed in micrograms a day, not milligrams, like other vitamins. Cobalt is essential for function of nerves and the whole nervous system, red blood cell synthesis, DNA replication, pineal and pituitary hormones--our most crucial biological functions. Cobalt is also one of three naturally magnetic elements. B12 isn't really a chemical vitamin, but a magnetic hormone whose key ingredient is a heavy metal trace element. B12 is made--not by animals--but by bacteria--a common, lowly microbe!
Nature has provided, but man has taken away. Even the Bible says we are born out of the dust of the Earth--the minerals. Originally, minerals from earth's rocks were dissolved by rivers and rains, washing soluble salts into oceans. Minerals are absorbed best when they are dissolved in water. Water is the most abundant and important molecule in our body, and perhaps the least appreciated or understood. On Earth, water covers nearly 75% of our planet's surface, in all three of its phases:gas, liquid, and solid. Likewise, our body is around 75% water by weight, most of which is lymph fluid. Our organs and glands float in this internal ocean, whose chemical composition and ion concentrations are carefully controlled. In our bodies, water exists in all three states: vapor, fluid, and crystal, plus a fourth state: plasma.Water--the universal solvent--has key roles in cell and body. The first organisms--bacteria, plant, and animal--evolved in Earth's early ocean. Water is the medium in which all biochemical reactions occur. Most nutrients are dissolved in water. Water liquefies food to carry nutrients through intestines where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and lymph. Wastes from cells are dissolved in water and collected by blood to excrete as urine and sweat. Water regulates body temperature by absorbing heat released by cell metabolism. Skin secretes water as perspiration, and then heat transforms it to vapor, cooling the body. Animals on starvation diets still survive, even after losing all stored fats and carbohydrates, and half their protein. But loss of 10% of their water is very serious, and 20% loss usually results in death. So water must be consumed steadily to prevent dehydration, and maintain fluid, electrolyte and pH balances.
Solid State Biology
Sugar--the universal fuel of biology--is simply water and carbon dioxide: carbohydrate. Plants make sugar by capturing sunshine to split water into protons, electrons and oxygen. The electrons liberated by photosynthesis are captured to race around in sugar's 6-carbon rings. Water is the routine by-product of biosynthesis, such as turning sugars into starch, amino acids into protein, or fatty acids into lipid. All are acid-base reactions that yield salt and water. But most critical--and least understood--is water's ability to transmit energy. Wind making waves on oceans and lakes, and the ever-flowing currents of rivers and oceans portray water's ability to capture and carry energy. In cells, wave energy is not only a current of electrons, but magnetic flux--and these properties are altered by electrolytes. Water isn't merely a medium for electrolytes to dissolve and form. Water becomes part of the electrolytes themselves, held together by an electromagnetic charge created by rock enzymes. Cell protoplasm--like the rest of the body--is mostly water, but not ordinary water. This water has certain ions added in careful, precise amounts, and then electromagnetic charge is imparted. This force imposes definite, yet subtle order to water molecules. Cell biology calls fluid inside cell membrane gelatinous--leaving this mystery murky and amorphous.
Trace elements are the proverbial needle in a haystack. They are just as essential as carbohydrates and protein, but needed in minute amounts. We need little more than a millionth of an ounce of iodine, but if it's lacking, goiter develops from a dysfunctional thyroid. A cell wall can't have elasticity unless it has a bit of silica. As we get older, lack of silica causes skin to harden and age rapidly. But with silica, we know people's skin stays tougher, and looks younger.
Minerals have complex interactions with each other and other nutrients. Some are beneficial, but many are antagonistic. For example, zinc interferes with copper and iron absorption, while copper enhances iron uptake, but inhibits molybdenum. Cobalt is antagonized by molybdenum, and unfriendly to zinc. If the ratios aren't there, electrolytes won't form properly. Consider that just one element--copper--creates more electromagnetic spin. Too much copper--or at the wrong moment--can short circuit electric charge created by bacteria. Magnesium (Mg) and Calcium (Ca) share the same column in the Periodic Table of Elements, and both have two valence electrons in the outer shell. In seawater, Ca and Mg salts are first and second in quantity. In bedrock, Mg is commonly found with Ca. In soil tests, Mg is second after Ca in percent of cations for base saturation. A specific Mg:Ca ratio is needed in soil for healthy plants.
Bacteria feed on the minerals, and change them from simple ionic solution to an electromagnetic state of charge similar to plasma--the fourth state of matter. While this metamorphosis is no mystery, it is subtle and obscure beyond the means and models of modern science. Fertile soil's dark color is due to silent, unseen bacteria. The main food of microbes is minerals. Earth's tiniest organisms convert inorganic ions into living protoplasm, which then is food for more complex life-forms. Plants grow best when fed minerals predigested by bacteria, not by eating minerals directly. A primitive example of bacteria-plant symbiosis is lowly lichen encrusting boulders, feeding on sunshine and rock. Lichen is in a partnership: bacteria supply pre-digested minerals, pre-packaged in protoplasm, to algae, which feed the microbes sugar from sunshine. Similarly, most plants have partnerships with soil bacteria, trading sugar for minerals and nutrients. A more complex exchange occurs betweenlegumes--beans, peas, clover, vetch--and nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria in root nodules. Trees--the largest, most complex plants--maintain microbial communities around their roots on a galactic scale of quantity and diversity. Mineral powders rapidly disrupt pathogenic bacteria. An abundant supply of elemental ions alters cell membranes to rapidly relieve infection and restore tissues to health. Bacteria are allies of life and health, not enemies. Healthy soil is a cooperating community of interacting organisms who feed and support each other in a stable balance.
Water is the most studied liquid on Earth, yet its subtle electromagnetism isn't well-known or understood by biology and medicine. Science has known since the late 1700's that water is H2O, but not until 1956 was its physical structure understood. Yet water's real mystery is how it behaves inside a cell membrane. And its real power is subtle, not forceful. Water is created by covalent bonds between an oxygen and two hydrogen molecules. A covalent bond is when two atoms share a pair of electrons, and thus become attracted and fixed together. This union releases a great burst of energy, to the effect that hydrogen burns quickly in air, producing lots of light and heat--and water. Because oxygen attracts electrons more readily than hydrogen, electrons spinning in outer orbitals of water's covalent bonds associate more with oxygen than hydrogen. This creates a slight electric polarity between opposite ends of each atomic bond, with the oxygen slightly negative and the hydrogen slightly positive. The electrons in the outer orbitals of oxygen--and also carbon and nitrogen--form a 4-sided tetrahedron. Thus, the orbital geometry of oxygen's outer electrons is such that the configuration of water's three atoms isn't a straight line. Rather, the hydrogens draw together to form a "V"--like a Mickey Mouse head with two ears. This unusual angular geometry is the reason for water's subtle energy properties. This "V" shape gives a slight electric polarity between oxygen's negativecharge, and--on the opposite side--hydrogen's positive charges. A water molecule is a tiny electric dipole. While this polar shape has a slight electrical charge, it is not truly or fully ionic.
Actually, water is far more complex than this simple, solitary H2O. For starters, H2O can separate into H+ and OH- molecules that are truly ionic, and act like acid and base, respectively. While water as a whole is neutral pH, it contains an equal balance of these positive and negative ions. Hydrogen and oxygen also combine to form more complex molecules with unbalanced geometries and polarities, such as H3O, H3O2, H4O2, H5O2, and others. These single molecules can bond to form double, triple and larger molecules. The effect is that water has a much more complex internal structure than simple H2O. Water's polarized geometry creates a weak attraction between opposite poles of adjacent molecules. Hydrogen's positive polarity pulls it near the weak negative of a nearby oxygen atom. This subtle affinity among water's polar molecules is an internal force that holds water together. Biochemists call this faint force between hydrogen and oxygen of adjacent molecules a hydrogen bond. But it's not truly a bond, since no electrons are exchanged. This slight inter-molecular pull, enables water to drip in drops, blob in bodies, and have a high boiling temperature. This subtle attraction makes water wet, and gives it cohesiveness--an ability to hold together without having definite, fixed shape. And Nature finds multitudes of uses for this subtle attraction.
Most dissolved mineral impurities found in water are present in the form of ions. An ion is an electrically charged particle. This electrical charge can be either positive ornegative. Ions with a positive (+) electrical charge are called cations. Ions with a negative (-) electrical charge are called anions. When chemical compound such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3 ) is dissolved in water, it breaks apart to form the cation calcium (Ca++ ) and the anion carbonate (CO3 -2 ). Under certain circumstances, these ions present in water can combine again to form the compound
Ca++ + CO3 - - -> (CaCO3).
Ions have different degrees of electrical charges. The degree of electrical charge of an ion is termed its valence state and is a measure of its ability to combine with other ions. Cations may have electrical charges of +1(+), +2(++), +3(+++) or +4(++++). Conversely, anions may have electrical charges of -1(-), -2(- -), -3(- - -) or -4(- - - -). When anions combine, the resulting valence of the chemical compound must equal zero. A calcium ion (Ca-2 ) can combine with one carbonate ion (CO3-2 ) or two chloride ions (Cl ). Ca++ + CO3 - - -> CaCO3
Ca++ + 2Cl - - -> CaCl2
Impurities found in water depends greatly upon the source of the water. The two main sources of water are surface water and ground water. Surface water is water that comes from lakes, rivers, and oceans. Approximately 80% of all the water used by man is drawn from surface water supplies. In general, surface water contains the mineral matter that is dissolved as the water that comes in contact with the earth’s crust. Ground water is water that is stored deep beneath the earth’s surface in huge underground reservoirs. It contains the mineral matter that is dissolved as water filters through the earth’s crust. It contains a higher content of dissolved carbon dioxide as a result of the decay of organic matter within the earth. The types of impurities in and levels of concentration in a water supply is a function of the geographic makeup of the area as well as whether it is surface water or ground water.
Seeds of Symmetry
This fragile force gives water its high surface tension--the ability to float objects on its surface. This weak internal attraction also allows water to hold large particles in colloidal suspension--freely floating within the water. Delicate hydrogen bonds are the same force that holds two amino acids together as the base pairs between the twin strands of DNA's spiral helix. Water's tiny electric dipoles give it remarkable power to dissolve other substances--especially ionic substances--and to hold them in dynamic suspension, floating in fluid mobility. The electric poles of H2O molecules attract, attach and hold other ionic or polar chemicals, and, in their constant motions, carry them off, thus disassembling them. Fire burns, but water dissolves. Life's secret is this solution. In a solution, minerals--because of their higher mass and stronger electric charge--are the centers of electromagnetic force. Other molecules gather around these focal points of force, and tend to form stable configurations. Mineral ions become the seeds of symmetry for the water molecules as the geometry of electrons in the minerals' orbitals provides the pattern for the solution's complex structures. If you shine light through a clear glass of water, and slowly drop salt crystals into the water as you peer through the glass, as the crystals drift down, you see they slowly dissolve into invisibility, pulled apart by water's own polar charges. Yet, in these dissolving crystals' wakes, you see delicate shadowy traces swirling through the water. The dark whorls form as crystalline geometry imparts order to water's randomly moving molecules, changing its refraction--its ability to bend light.
Thus, mineral imposes a definite geometry and order to water. Even when fully dissolved, the crystalline geometry of salt's ionic charge imparts order to moving water molecules. The presence of mineral ions alters the angles of water's lattice, warping and bending the water molecules' organization to accommodate the strong ionic charge. Such slight shifts in geometry can alter water's physical properties, such as melting and boiling temperatures, and chemical reactivity. This is similar to chelation, in which minerals are complexed with biochemical molecules. Minerals provide strong electromagnetic charges to hold organic molecules in tight, stable association. This also boosts water's capacity to conduct electric current. Similarly, semi-conductors are made into modern solid state electronics. A transistor begins as the purest possible silicon crystal. To this perfect array of atoms is added carefully controlled, trace amounts--parts per million--of other elements.
This contamination of pure silicon creates irregularities in the crystal lattice structure, and alters its electrical characteristics. Like life, water is in constant motion. In Nature, water is always moving--carrying energy and moved by forces. In biology, water's chief value is its ability to hold and transmit subtle energy, as in waves, runs and rains. Living water is moving water; stagnant water is dead--like a stinking swamp or rotting cadaver. Water's intimate sensitivity to energy is exploited in modern technologies. Microwave ovens work because radio frequency energy pumps spin into electrons orbiting water molecules, exciting them, heating them, and thus cooking the food. Doctors use ultrasound to peer into our bodies' complex fluids. Hospitals use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to detect hydrogen's spin flip, and thus reveal the body's inner tissues. The bipolar geometry of water is not only electric, but magnetic. The outer electrons of the hydrogen-oxygen bonds are in orbital spin, and a moving charge generates a magnetic field. So this tiny dipole also has a minute magnetic field around it.
This makes each water dipole a tiny magnet, and makes water very sensitive to magnetic-fields, especially when it has minute amounts of trace elements added to it.So, when water whirls, its tiny dipole magnets tumble around each other. If the movements of water molecules are random and disorderly, water's overall energy is neutral. But in certain circumstances--such as in a cell or your bloodstream--water generates an electromagnetic force. In fact, moving water has a detectable, if minuscule, energy field--especially if it contains the proper percent of metal ions. In certain situations, water's energy of motion is captured by the molecules as increased electron spin. Water's swirling kinetic energy is absorbed and entrained as resonant atomic energy. Thus, another form of "fire" is stored in water--kinetic energy of whirling motion. This higher spin energy increases hydrogen-oxygen attractions between adjacent water molecules. This causes water to hold more tightly together. Details of how this subtle effect occurs is not fully known or understood, although the basic principles are simple. Science has few tools or instruments sensitive enough to measure the subtle energy stored by water as molecular patterns. One key insight is that charging water alters the angle between the hydrogens in the molecule. The hydrogen-oxygen bond is slightly flexible, and the angle can vary up to 10 degrees. As orbital electron spin increases, the hydrogens draw tighter, closer together and the angle between the hydrogens decreases.
This slight shift in geometry increases polarization in a water molecule, and thus strengthens hydrogen-oxygen attractions between adjacent molecules. This increases water's surface tension, and boosts water's capacity to hold ions and particles in suspension. This makes water wetter--makes it stick to other surfaces more effectively. Another consequence of this is to create more double, triple and other complex water molecules. Water can then form larger, more complex lattice structures, and achieve a more stable internal order. Molecules are less random, more organized. This boost in polarity and charge makes water more orderly, and order is what life is about. The water inside a cell membrane is as orderly as possible. The seeds of symmetry imparted by ions form larger structures with greater coherence as the patterned geometry of dissolved electrolytes becomes completed and replicated through water's internal structure. But a more subtle effect is achieved by whirling water. More deeply, water's electronic characteristics are boosted. Increased internal attraction also allows water to contain and retain more structure and order as dynamic vibration. The randomness of water's constant motion is reduced, controlled and restrained, and water acquires a stable, orderly geometry. Water becomes coherent, much like a laser beam is coherent light.
Spinning water in a vortex creates a kinetic energy--the energy of motion, or momentum. This energy creates a special state of charge. The water is still a freely flowing fluid, yet, like ice, has a stable, orderly molecular structure, but is still not frozen in a rigid, hard solid state. It is a liquid crystal. Crystalloid is the actual form the electrolytes are in, which is a very, very minute particle structure. Similarly, water molecules in a liquid crystal state move and dance around, yet retain an overall geometry and synchrony in their motions. But unlike humans, water doesn't dance in lines or squares, but in circles, spinning spirals into 3-D lattice arrays. Water in this state is much more orderly than ordinary water. It has a capacity to hold a stable shape, even though individual water molecules dance in, out and about the pattern.Individual water molecules remain in free motion, but their collective movement retains a fixed order. Living cells prefer this liquid crystal water to pack inside a cell membrane to make protoplasm. In this form, water and minerals pass easily through cell membranes, and soft tissues like mucous membranes and intestinal micro-villi. Colloidal molecules are too large to pass through the body's soft tissues. They must be crystalloid to absorb well in the human body. Especially to pass through a cell membrane.
Lightning always strikes where there is a vein of water under the ground, often over 100 feet deep. Fire is drawn to water. Similarly, a home's electric system is routinely grounded to water pipes. The sudden rush of electrons through air and into soil is Nature's most intense ion generator--hotter than the surface of the sun in one fast flash. What really happens to air, water and soil in a lightning flash? We know that lightning ionizes oxygen and nitrogen to form ozone and nitrous oxide. But what other effects occur when a sudden super electron flux radically charges and changes the molecules, ions and particles of soil? Lightning remains an unsolved, unpredictable reality to science, yet is an essential function of Earth's weather, atmosphere and climate, occurring over 1,000 times a second. Even in early evolution, life's first complex chemicals--amino acids--are believed to have been sparked by lightning. Exchanges of electric charge between upper atmosphere and water in the Earth, is too frequent, too orderly, too timely, too powerful to be random, freakish, purposeless phenomena. Perhaps a constant communication occurs to maintain the fragile, balanced distribution of charge between earth and sky. This display of fire and water may be the macro-world model of energy exchanges in a cell membrane.There is much mystery here--which science has only begun to unravel. We have much yet to learn about the dances of fire and water as light is spun into life.
Science is now beginning to fully sense the subtle energies involved in cells, and to measure the electromagnetic reality of biology. Solid state electronics, super-conductors, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron microscopes, SQUIDs, and other new tools are expanding the scales and depths--even dimensions--that science can peer into the mysteries of living organisms. Physical chemistry is no longer sufficient to explain the workings of cell, body or brain. Today, a new consciousness is awakening in the public, ready to accept the truth that health is founded on nutrition, and rooted in our soils, and depends on the dance of fire and water. And we must draw our circle wide enough to embrace microbes and bacteria. We need to see microbes as allies, not enemies, in the balance of life and health. Science has begun to appreciate to power of bacteria to neutralize toxic, even radioactive, chemicals. We can also harness microbes to create superior foods and medicines, turn our wastes into fertilizer, and turn sickness into health.
