The Multidimensional Body
There is considerable evidence to suggest that there exists a holographic energy template associated with a physical body. This etheric body is a body which looks quite similar to the physical body over which it is superimposed.
The Etheric Body
also carries spatial information on how the developing fetus is to unfold in utero, and also the structural data for growth and repair of the adult organism. This energetic structure works together with cellular genetic mechanisms.
The physical body is connected to and dependent upon the etheric body for cellular guidance - the physical body cannot be maintained without it. If the etheric field becomes distorted, physical disease soon follows. Many illnesses have their origin in distortions of the supportive etheric field.
The etheric body is composed of matter, but it is of a different density and frequency than the matter composing the physical body. It is not completely separated from the physical system with which it interacts. There are specific channels of energy exchange which allow the flow of Information to move from one system to another.
These channels have been discussed in Eastern literature.
The Acupuncture Meridian System
Ancient Chinese theory has it that the acupuncture points on the human body are points along an unseen meridian system that runs deeply through the tissues of the body. Through these meridians passes nutritive energy bearing coded information.
There were a series of studies on the anatomic nature of the meridian system in animals which were carried out in Korea during the 1960’s by a team of researchers headed by Professor Kim B.Han.
Kim’s histologic studies of the tubular meridian system showed that it appeared to be divided into a superficial system and a deep system.
The deep system was further subdivided into various subsystems.
The first of these deep meridian systems was called the Internal Duct System. These tubules were found free-floating within the vascular and lymphatic vessels, penetrating the vessel walls at entry and exit points.
Fluids within these internal ducts were usually found to travel in the same direction as the flow in the vessel they were discovered in. In certain circumstances ductal fluids were noted to flow in the opposite direction.
The fact that these ducts penetrate and leave the vessel walls indicates that the formation of these ducts is different (and perhaps earlier in time) than the origin of the vascular and lymph systems. The meridians may act as spatial guides for the growth and development of the vascular and lymphatic systems.
As vessels developed they would grow around the meridians.
A second series of tubules was characterized and called the Intra-External Duct System. These ducts are found along the surface of internal organs and appear to form a network which is entirely independent of the vascular, lymphatic and nervous systems
A third series, known as the External Duct System, was found to run alongside the outer surface of the walls of blood and lymphatic vessels.
