It is the 4th, the most innovatory category of the discussion-topics.
Here we try to understand - for the first time in the history of life sciences - our own body, its functions, processes, and problems, in terms of the Unified Physics. For the navigation use the menu above or the following table.

What is life? The nanoscale technology of life
Life is the hereditary ability to consume energy from the environment. We name the living systems organisms or creatures. Therefore, the living organisms must be able to eat (independently, each by itself, or with the help of other organisms). As the second condition for the so-called higher-organized life could be named the ability to produce the organisms` own descendants.
All living creatures must be bigger than the universal quantum of matter (the universal length of the Field of Light amounts to 5.07 nm). And turned back, only those quanta of matter that are bigger than the quanta of the universal Field of Light can build the living organisms. Out present task is to learn to imagine for ourselves, in which way the universal quanta of matter can originate directly from the Field of Light.
If a living organism is cut apart in pieces smaller than the universal length, it stops to live. Stops a creature to eat, it dies too. After the death, it disintegrates back into the universal quanta of the Field of Light. Receives a creature no descendants, it dies not only itself but also its whole „line“ dies out. Receive all individuals of a species no more descendants, the whole species dies out.
From this definition of life, we see that, in contrast to the claim of the traditional physics or chemistry, it is impossible to build a living organism from individual atoms or molecules. We also see that no single organism can live alone. If the life should exist, it must be many creatures, at least on the step of the simplest organisms. Therefore, the primitive life, that covers its „food“ directly from the field of light, must exist everywhere throughout the Universe. With some longlasting, more favorable „food-offer“ (an additional source of energy), it is in principle possible to establish also the higher developed forms of life. However, in my first book („The cosmic carousel of life“), I have already explained extensively, why such a development up to the human being, as it happened on the Earth, is rather an exception in the whole Universe.
The best chemical textbook considering the entire matter (inanimate as well as the animated one), that I have read in my life, is „Chemistry, Matter and the Universe“ by Richard E. Dickerson and Irving Geis (for German translation take ISBN: 3-527-25867-1). Since however also this book is based on the traditional physics, it is also not free from the deceptive conclusions of this physics. In chapter 18, we read there, for example, that „we can assume that each living creature is built from atoms, which have the ability, to form high-organized systems“. One page earlier we also read „that these chemical systems based on carbon are alive“.
Through these wrong conclusions, the authors are also forced to define the life itself as follows: „Live is a particular chemical system, that has originated in our corner of the Universe and possibly as well elsewhere (although we have no proof for it so far) from few types of atoms on restricted area and in a restricted temperature-range“. In the whole traditional science does not exist a reasonable idea however, which could explain this spatial and energetic limitedness of this life, not even in onset. In this situation, the universality of the primitive life in out unified description looks much more realistically against it. Those probable, although rare cosmic events, which have led to the sophisticated life exactly on our Earth, I have presented also in my first book.
The textbook of Dickerson and Geis delivers however to us also many useful information over the bases of life. We learn in chapter 21, for example, that despite the theoretical variety of the carbon connections, the life on the Earth „turns itself“ only about the single connection - glucose. Consequently, this simple sugar substance is the universal organic substance of the life on our planet. Its two most important polymers are cellulose and starch. We find over half of the organic carbon of the Earth in the form of cellulose. „Cellulose is so plentiful because it represents the universal construction-material for the cell walls of plants of all type - from the green algae up to the Californian redwoods. The fundamental framework of the plants is polymeric glucose.“
The second-most important organic connection, with big superiority over each other substance, is starch. The starch is an energy storage for the plants. By breaking only one type of the chemical bonds, starch is back-transformed to instant glucose. A relative disadvantage of the starch as an energy storage is the low energy-mass relationship.
The animals against it store their surplus energy in form of fat. The disintegration of fats to instant smaller molecules is much more complicated than in the case of the starch. Their energy-mass relationship is however approximately double so high as with the starch. The animals save through it at the weight, since they must carry-around their energy reserves with themselves.
The fats and the from fats derivated membrane-molecules are the most important representatives of the other important class of the organic connections, namely the lipids. The lipids form, together with proteins, all types of biological membranes, in vegetable as well as in animal cells.
From the point of view of Naturics, the carbon connections mentioned above, like cellulose, starch, fats and lipids, are maybe the most important representatives of the quantum spectrum of matter on the molecular level, lying directly below the level of the universal Field of Light. However, at the closest to this universal level lie the two biochemical substances most important for all forms of life: the proteins and the nucleic acids.
As we can see from it, the secret of the uniformity of life lies in the simple fact that only very few different types of the structural elements are necessary, in order to describe the innumerable different structures of the living creatures. They are just the proteins, the nucleic acids, the membranes and the sugar-elements (carbohydrates). It is almost all. Almost, because we must not forget of course also „the water of life“, and the tiny „ingredients“ (like salts or vitamins), that make the life „more colorful“ and „healthier“. If there are actually only so few structural elements in the living creatures, it is no longer remarkable that each disintegration of an alive structure must produce always the same chemical elements on the molecular and atomic sublevels.
I am speakimg intentionally very clearly here about the structural elements and about formation, and not about building blocks and about a construction of the living organisms, in order to force the reverse way of thinking in comparison with the traditional one. It is, for example, not true, that the cellulose-fibers are constructed on the traditionally described manner (as described also in the book by Dickerson and Geis), beginning with the stretched chains of ß-D-glucose-molecules, that become then skillfully and in a mysterious way (almost super-naturally) bound to fibrils, that first then become twined to the strong fibers. In reality, the situation is just exactly reverse. From the live-friendly level of the Field of Light originate directly the „ready“ structural elements, that we can identify under a strong optical microscope as the cellulose-fiber. Comparatively, though under something other circunstances, from the same universal level of the Field of Light the „ready“ carbon-nanotubes would arise. Each chemical attempt to analyze this fiber increases its energy density, through what they become forced into a correspondingly different level of the smaller fibrils or still smaller molecules, traditionally wrongly called to as a „spontaneous“ disintegration.
I propose to name the formation of such nanometer-sized structural elements of the living organisms directly from the Field of Light - the nanoscale technology of life.
