              "MAGNETOTACTIC CYTOPLASMIC STREAMING"

  HAY, LOOK HERE, I THINK THIS IS THE BEST MODEL YET, AND CAN BE USED TO EXPLAIN
 HOW
MAGNETISM IS USED BIOLOGICALLY. LET ME RUN IT BY YOU, IT SHOULD PUT AN END TO A 
LOT
OF GUESSING AND DISINFORMATION.

     ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION, LEADS TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

  WHAT IS CYTOPLASMIC STREAMING???

 From the book-- Fundamentals of Microbiology.
-- "Another property of eukaryotic cells is the continuous movement of the cytop
lasm
within the cell. This movement, called cytoplasmic streaming, results in a const
ant
distribution of the intracellular contents, and provides a mechanism of amebic m
otility
to some types of cells"

-- "Cytoplasmic streaming has never been seen in procaryotic cells, but,as one m
ight
expect, it is not necessary in a cell small enough that simple diffusion is suff
icient
to move material around inside the cytoplasm."
 
  SO, LETS SEE, CYTOPLASMIC STREAMING IS A FORM OF CIRCULATION WHICH TAKES PLACE
 IN
LARGER CELLS. CELLS LIKE THE ONES THAT FORM THE PARTS OF OUR BODIES.

  BUT WHAT CAUSES CYTOPLASMIC STREAMING IN THESE CELLS???

 From the book-- Fundamentals of Microbiology.
-- "Eukaryotic cells also contain within the cytoplasm organelles that carry out
 many
metabolic activities that liberate energy for the cell. These structures are cal
led
mitochondria, and the generation of adenosine triphosphate is their principal fu
nction.
In those plant cells involved in photosynthesis the chlorophyll is contained in 
an
organelle called the chloroplast."

 From the book-- The Secret Life of Plants. by Peter Tompkins & 
Christopher Bird.
-- "The effects of electromagnetic energy on living cells, both healthy and dise
ased,
which most doctors and medical researchers, including cancer specialists, have y
et
honestly to confront, were finally to be revealed by the magic of time-lapse pho
tography."

-- "Thus began the career of John Nash Ott, whose pioneering interest in time-la
pse
photography led him to unveil new mysteries in the kingdom of plants."

-- "To attack this problem, he spent months building equipment which would allow
 him to
take microscopic pictures of the streaming of protoplasm in the cells of Elodea 
grass
while it was stimulated by direct unfiltered natural sunlight. Exposed to the su
n's rays,
the chlorophyll-containing bodies, called chloroplasts, which are the principal 
agents of
photosynthesis, streamed in an orderly fashion around the edges of the obloid ce
lls.
But when the ultraviolet light in the sunlight was filtered out, some of the chl
oroplasts
would drop out of the streaming pattern and huddle, immobile,in the corners. Cut
ting out
the colors from the blue end of the spectrum toward the red increasingly slowed 
the
chloroplast action."

-- "Particularly fascinating to Ott was the fact that, at day's 
end, all the chloroplasts slowed down and stopped no matter how 
intensely they were subjected to artificial light. Only when the 
sun rose the next day would they resume the normal streaming
pattern."

-- "Ott realized that if the basic principles of photosynthesis, 
as they applied to plant photosynthesis, had analogs in the 
animal world, then,,,,"

 SO CHLOROPLASTS MOVE IN A ORDERLY FASHION WHEN LIGHT SHINES
ON THEM. AND SINCE THEY ARE INSIDE A CELL, THEY CAUSE A STIRRING
OF THE MATERIAL WITHIN THAT CELL. HAY, THAT REMINDS ME...

 From-- Nature 30,324. 31 July 1984.
        "Surprises from Halobacteria".
-- "As part of their evolutionary adaptation to life in hot salty 
pools, halobacteria have also developed a double linkage between 
light sensitive membrane proteins and the flagella: one system 
drives them towards regions of high-intensity visible light, 
while the other helps them to avoid dangerously high levels of 
ultraviolet radiation."

 SO, THE PHOTOTACTIC HALOBACTERIA ARE FOUND IN POOLS. BUT 
THEY ARE VERY MUCH LIKE THE CHLOROPLAST, WHICH ARE FOUND IN 
CELLS. AND SOME CELLS USE THE ORDERLY MOVEMENT OF THE 
CHLOROPLAST TO GENERATE CYTOPLASMIC STREAMING, (CIRCULATION), 
WHEN THE SUN SHINES.
   
 BUT WHAT ABOUT CELLS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE LIGHT TO FUNCTION,
YET STILL REQUIRE CYTOPLASMIC CIRCULATION???
 HOW DO THE CELLS DEEP IN OUR BODIES MAINTAIN A CONSTANT
DISTRIBUTION OF ITS INTRACELLULAR CONTENTS???

 ANSWER THAT QUESTION GRASSHOPPER, 
            AND IT WILL BE TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE, THE PLANET.

 WELL,,, WHAT IF INSTEAD OF PHOTOTACTIC, THE CELL LEARNED TO
USE THE MAGNETOTACTIC PROPERTIES OF AN ORGANELLE???
ONE KIND-OF-LIKE THE BACTERIA KNOWN AS MAGNETIC BACTERIA.

 WHAT IF MITOCHONDRIA ARE MAGNETOTACTIC, AND CAN GENERATE
CYTOPLASMIC CIRCULATION DAY AND NIGHT???

 WOULD CELLS HAVE FIRST LEARNED TO USE THE FLUCTUATIONS IN
THE MAGNETOSPHERE CAUSED BY SUN SPOT ACTIVITY, TO PROVIDE
A SMALL DEGREE OF CIRCULATION???

 THEN, WOULD THE CELL HAVE LEARNED THAT IT CAN INCREASE THE
DEGREE OF ITS CYTOPLASMIC CIRCULATION BY MOVING ITSELF IN THE
EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD???

 BUT IN ORDER FOR THAT TO BE TRUE, ONE WOULD FIND MAGNETITE
IN OUR BODIES.

 From-- Science, vol.215. 19 March 1982. "Magnetic Navigation an 
Attractive Possibility".
-- "Investigators find magnetic particles in organisms ranging 
from bacteria to man; their role in orientation is still 
problematic."

-- "It thus remains possible that magnetite in other organisms 
may also have some function unrelated to orientation."

 AND THAT WOULD MAKE IT HARD TO FIND EUKARYOTIC CELLS 
OUTSIDE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD LIKE THE EARTH'S. (THE FIELD PRODUCED
BY A/C VOLTAGE IS NOT LIKE THE EARTH'S IN THE WAY THAT IT
REVERSES 60 TIMES A SECOND.

 AND THEN BIRD EGGS WOULD HAVE TO BE TURNED, IN THE MAGNETIC
FIELD TO CAUSE A HIGHER DEGREE OF CIRCULATION. WHILE THE REPTILE,
NOT HAVING LIVED IN THE TREES, WOULD ONLY REQUIRE THE LOWER
DEGREE OF CIRCULATION BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE MOVEMENT IN THE 
MAGNETOSPHERE DUE TO SUN SPOT ACTIVITY.

 IF THE HEALTH OF A CELL DEPENDED ON CIRCULATION WITHIN ITS
WALLS. AND THAT CIRCULATION ONLY OCCURS WHEN MOVEMENT IN A 
MAGNETIC FIELD IS SUFFICIENT.

 THEN BABIES WOULD SUFFER WHEN NOT CARRIED ENOUGH!!!
THEY WOULD BE SUFFERING FROM THE SAME LACK OF CYTOPLASMIC
CIRCULATION AS OLD PEOPLE DO. AND THEY WOULD BE IN THE SAME 
BOAT AS THE ASTRONAUTS, NOT BEING ABLE TO MOVE ENOUGH IN A
MAGNETIC FIELD LIKE THE EARTH'S.

 IF THIS WERE TRUE, THEN MANKIND COULD NOW CHOOSE A 
DIFFERENT WAY OF LIFE. ONE WHICH UTILIZES THE LESSONS LEARNED
FROM A STUDY OF "MAGNETRITION".

 WOULD A MAN, WORKING AND LIVING BY THE PRINCIPLES CONVEYED 
HERE-IN, FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE MANKIND ONCE LIVED AS WE DO
NOW???

 HAVE I FORMULATED A MODEL WHICH CAN NOW BE USED TO HELP
EVERY PERSON, (FROM NOW ON), TO LIVE A LIFE OF UNPRECEDENTED
GOOD HEALTH AND LONGEVITY???
 AND, ARE PEOPLE HAVING TROUBLE HEARING ME AS I TRY TO
SHARE WITH THEM THIS GOOD NEWS???

 IS IT BECAUSE I'VE BEEN MADE GO OUTSIDE BECAUSE I SMOKE???
