Suggestions from the models of “Theory of Universal Matrix”

Posted by Morelli on 12 Dec 2008 at 20:33 GMT

THE SINGLE-CELL’S LIFE CYCLE PERFORMS A PROTO-SYSTEM AND AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT IT EXPRESS ONLY ONE LIFE’S CYCLE SHAPE AND HIDDEN THE OTHER SHAPES, LIKE ANY HUMAN BEING.

THE ACTIVITY PATTERN OF THE SYSTEMIC BIOCHEMICAL REACTIONS OBEYS THE HEISENBERG UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE, AS IT CAN BE SEEING AT THE MATRIX’S MODELS.

You write: “...there is mounting evidence in the experimental and modeling literature that a surprisingly small part of the network can carry all metabolic functions required for growth in a given environment, whereas the remaining part is potentially necessary only under alternative conditions.”

Matrix suggestion: “ Ok, we are observing terrestrial atoms performing a process. What kind of forces produces this phenomena? Where are these forces laying among non-living matter? Are then forces inherited from atoms systems, or from astronomical systems, or from the Earth’s evolution? Why matter targets growth? It makes sense? From where and when the terrestrial matter got instructions for making this process? Why are there these mechanisms governing this process? The optimal state of a natural system can be compared to the functioning of a clock; so, why and how a clock should works only from numbers 9 to 12 (for instance), instead working among the 12 numbers as normal?!

The cell’s system is a material structure that has fixed all individual life’s cycle shapes of atoms and galaxies in a systemic network, as you can see in the Matrix models at http://theuniversalmatrix...

Looking to the Matrix’s models, we get the big and general understanding: this process came from the proto-system existing about , 10 billions years ago and it is all about “natural systems’ life’s cycle”. The single cell is an individual that like us, human beings, is born, get the baby-shape, the child shape, the adult shape, etc., and dies. Like a human child 4 years old puts some organs to work and refrain to use other organs. His/her stomach needs working hard and fast, while the brain is not such necessary as when the teenager is going to college. In its life cycle, a human being organic reactions is modeled by alternative environmental conditions.
