THE HUMAN MACHINE: STRUCTURE GOVERNS FUNCTION – VOLUME I
Guided by the principle that dis-ease is something the human body can treat (with assistance) on its own, this manual provides techniques that can be used to put our bodies back into physical harmony.
Dr. Selinksy prompts us to recognize and identify what is causing the unbalancing acts going on in our digestive systems. What dietary indiscretions are leading to our aches and pains? What pollutants in our food (and at what levels) are contaminating our systems? What genetic component is missing, or is at an inadequate level, so that it results in compromised muscle and connective tissue interaction?
The steps to homeostasis (our systems working in balance with each other) are laid out in an easy to follow format that brings us into full recognition of what we are doing wrong, and how we can start to make things right.
Human personality and behavior can be viewed from two fundamentally different perspectives:
1) Genetic structure that allows behavior
2) Environmental conditioning that alters behavior within a structure
Science refers to inherited behavior or inherited defects or inherited talents. After examining that statement in light of our previous conversation, we see that behavior as such is not and cannot be inherited. What is in fact passed on through gene combinations is structure (shape). It is structure that allows behavior to express itself.
The potential for behavior exists in the structure, not skin color, as some people would have us believe. If the entity in question is operating on automatic pilot or at instinct-level consciousness, behavior is closely defined in the structure.
In other words, the behavior is more reactionary(instinctive) rather than volitional (conscious) and is therefore rather predictable based on the observable structure and the environmental stimulus.
In other words, it is in fact possible to anticipate a certain behavior based on a specific observable structure. And it is structure that is passed through the genes. The members of a family who look alike will behave in a similar fashion because their structure is similar. Structure
