An ant community is considered as a super organism – tens of thousands of small creatures with precise tasks and even various body styles and instincts that collectively serve the whole colony as a single colony.
People sometimes marvel at the tiny ants performing this way.
This does not approach the marvel and complexity of the human super organism – in which microscopic single cell organisms (our cells) collectively function as one creature.
Some combine together to make an organ of the body (heart, lungs, muscles…). Others are mini-refineries – producing extremely complex chemicals – organic and inorganic composites.
Still others act in harmony – but are free flowing around the body like ants streaming out from an ant colony. Some will bring food, others will attack and kill intruding virus, bacteria and fungus. Still others will attack birth-defected cells, removed dead and decaying cells.
There is endless micro-chemical refining and chemical alternations throughout this super colony of trillions of single cell organisms.
The most incredible cells are those of our immune system – as they deliberately continually mutate to met new attackers – but with a collective memory of old attackers.
If you get a flu, you get sick because your immunity cells do not yet know how to kill that virus. From then on, that virus can not harm you as the “mind” of the immune system remembers how to kill it.
Regardless of any medication you take to treat the symptoms, you will not get well until your immune system evolves to being able to kill the virus, fungus, bacteria or internal defect.
ONLY YOUR BODY can kill the virus – medicine only treats symptoms. But the perpetually evolving cellular systems also mean that things can go wrong very quickly if the cells mutant badly.
The necessity of healthy cells, particularly immune system cells, and the ability of cells to reproduce before becoming too old, is critical to health.
It is well understood that weak and sick people get other diseases much easier than healthy and strong people.
The battles of life, health, disease, performance and death all are happening at the microscopic, cellular level.
Whether you believe humans evolved from single cell organisms across billions of years or are the result of a master design plan of God, both define life on a cellular level – with more complex life being greater and greater collections of cells acting as a super organism – the human body is so complex as to reach self realization and even an inner voice.
But the body still is a super organism consisting of trillions of cells as how it all works. A person can not be healthy if their cells are sick, can not be strong if their cells are weak, and can not be young if their cells are old.
Presented by: Clair Atwell, residing in Ormond Beach, Florida. I am “A Solution Seeker…” © of alternatives that will enhance our lives naturally. I admire the cells of my body that are of such devotion to me. My suspicion is that they are wiser than I anyway. My cellular body does not need my ideology to exist, but I am entirely dependent upon their wisdom. Without them – the cells of my own body – I do not exist. Therefore, they are important. “Without Health There Is No Wealth…” http://www.Atwell.wordpress.com Copy this freely if you like. Thanks…
