The human body is a chemical laboratory. It differs from an ordinary chemical laboratory in that the body or Spirit has a knowledge of chemical phenomena unknown to all the chemists on earth. SPIRIT within is the chemist.
In the floor of the fourth ventrical of the brain is the CENTER which regulates the digestion and assimilation of foods, and the manufacture of substances which are used to keep the body in health.
Some of the glands secrete substances which cause the blood vessels all over the body to maintain tone and contractibility. From other tissues come forth antagonistic medicines that relax the arteries, one set of chemicals keeping a system of checks and balances over the other, working in mutual and intelligent opposition to each other. From certain highly organized cells, the Spirit created pigments ' marvels of color combination for the eyes, the skin, the hair. There is red for the arterial blood; blue color combinations for the blood in the veins; yellow and green colors for the manufacture of bile; purple for the spleen; black for the choroid of the eye, the blues, the browns, the. greens of the irises of the eyes; the brown of the freckles; the black, brown, yellow or red of the hair; and so on, ad infinitum. Functioning in the body are chemical processes and actions far beyond the ken of the world's greatest chemist. Mysteries of medicines, enzymes, colors, hormones, magical actions that, be it remembered, are always tending towards health unless the encroachments of wrong living interfere with the functioning of the SPIRIT.
In physical laboratories, we know that if chemicals are combined heedlessly and thoughtlessly, explosions will result; also flames and deadly gases develop. It is true, also, of the human digestive tract. If chemicals from foods. drinks, or toxins are incorrectly combined, there will be explosions, heat, and deadly gases generated within that give rise to much suffering.
The BRAIN CENTER that controls Zone 4 is located in the floor of the fourth ventrical.
This zone is composed of the following areas:
- FOURTH CERVICAL
- FOURTH THORACIC
- EIGHTH THORACIC
- FOURTH LUMBAR
