Continuing to discuss his new book, Ramayan in Human Physiology, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD), a distinguished scientist who was appointed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to represent the Global Country of World Peace, gave a brief overview of different aspects of structure and function in human physiology.
Please see Part I and Part II of this article.
'Even if you look at some aspects in the body that you find can be contradictory aspects—some want to increase the temperature, some want to decrease it; some aspect wants to increase the amount of amino acid in the blood, some want to draw it back and conserve it, reduce it, and take it in so that it is stored; then it's released, so it goes to different parts of the body, and builds the building blocks of the body.
'So when we think of our human physiology with its trillions and trillions of cells, and how they are assembled and they work in such a beautiful fashion, and there are all these specializations in different places—we really have a society of individuals, we can say, living within us, and making a whole which is more than the sum of the parts—which we call ourself, we are that reality.
'Out of that comes our actual physiological functioning,' Maharaja said. 'And within society itself, what we call society of different individuals, that are very different and perform different functions. But we're coming together to create a wholeness which is really allowing the collectiveness of the group to be more than the sum of the individual parts, because then we can build things together.
'Some people will be doctors, and they'll help to cure things, we can say they are like the immune system. Some other people will be engineers and have to build things, so they are like the machinery and the RNA that make the building blocks of the body.
'Some parts are just a thermostat mechanism that controls the temperature, some parts control the energy and seek energy.
'Like this we can see that there is a dynamics taking place in our body between the different parts. And these dynamics create structure, or they are based on structure; and they create function, and the functions depend on the structure
'So we have two things—we have the structure, and the function. And we have the dynamics of how structure and function take place in our physiology. This is a summary of our outlook on what the body is, what the physiology is.
'Now lets look at the other side, we want to compare this whole thing with the Ramayan. What is the Ramayan, what is that story, what is going on there?'
Global Good News will continue to feature Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam's discussion of his new book, Ramayan in Human Physiology, in which he first outlines the story of the Ramayan, then begins to explore the dynamics of natural law in this aspect of Vedic literature, and their counterparts in human physiology.
