Presented at Gordon Research Conference

Interfacial Water and Cell Biology

6-11 June 2004, Mount Holyoke College, Bradley, USA

This highly original paper was extremely well received at the prestigious Gordon Research Conference. It extends work described in Dr. Mae-Wan Ho’s book, The Rainbow and the Worm, the Physics of Organisms.

The paper presents evidence indicating that the living organism is a dynamic liquid crystalline continuum with coherent motions on every scale.

Furthermore, practically all the 70% by weight of water that makes up the bulk of the organism is aligned and moving coherently with the macromolecular matrix, and is integral to the liquid crystalline nature of the organism.

This liquid crystalline continuum facilitates rapid intercommunication throughout the body, enabling it to function as a perfectly coherent whole.

Key words

Liquid crystalline continuum, coherence, birefringence, nonlinear optics, delayed luminescence, bound water, free water, collagen, proton conduction, intercommunication, body consciousness
