How do cells store electrons or voltage?


brain image

In my first article I listed the common ways electrons are taken from the human body. Now I briefly discuss how cells in our bodies store electrons or voltage. This is a very complex subject, one which is explained best in Dr. Tennant’s book Healing is Voltagefor the purpose of this article, I will use some excerpts from his book to give you some of the easy to understand ways that this can happen.

How do cells store electrons?

Cell membranes are made up of opposing layers of fats called phospholipids. This unusual fat is made up of a ball with 2 legs. The ball is an electron conductor. The legs are the insulators. Anytime two conductors are separated by an insulator, you have an electronic device called a capacitor. Capacitors are designed to store electrons. Thus cell membranes serve as battery packs for the cells.

Liquid Crystals

Liquid crysalsDr. Bruce Lipton has recently discovered that the cell membrane also serves as a liquid crystal. The molecule in solid things stays in one location. An example of a solid is a crystal. However, in liquids the molecules move about. In some substances called liquid crystals, the molecules can move about but act like solids. This means the liquid crystals are neither a solid nor a liquid. Thus the name seems strange in that we are calling a solid a liquid when we say, “liquid crystal”. We are actually saying, “liquid solid”

Liquid crystals are influenced by electric current and/or temperature. Certain elements of liquid crystals have elements that are twisted. When one applies electricity to these liquid crystals, they begin to unwind. One can use this characteristic to use them to either block the passage of light through them or allow the light to pass. This depends on whether the elements are twisted or untwisted.

The thing that determines whether the elements are twisted or untwisted can be anything from a magnetic field to a surface that has grooves in it. An LCD is made with two plates of polarized glass, one in front and one in back. The back one is polarized 90 degrees from the front one. In between these two plates, are filters coated with liquid crystals. The orientation of the crystals is aligned with or opposed to the passage of light depending on the voltage applied. It is like having a rope with its fibers twisted tightly so light cannot pass down its length or a rope with its fibers untwisted so that there are spaces between the fibers that allow light to pass down its length. The function is very much like a rotating diaphragm that opens or closes depending on whether voltage is present or not.

One can see that phospholipids that make up a cell membrane have legs that can twist or untwist to permit light or water or other molecules to be blocked or pass through the cell membrane. They open and close depending on voltage applied.”

Dr. Tennant continues to discuss the array of semiconductors, diodes, transistors, capacitors and coils that make up the electron “storage units” in the body. Refer to pages 67-69 in Healing is Voltage

Tesla Resonating Circuits

In 1895 Nikola Tesla invented the Tuned Circuit or Resonating Circuit. It is a capacitor and a coil wired in parallel. Wired in Parallel means that the components are on a square as you see in the diagram. Capacitors (abbreviated as “C”) store electrons. Coils provide inductance (abbreviated as “L”). This is known as an “LC” circuit

Coil capacitor

Parallel Tuned Circuits are used in radio and other electronics to couple resonant Energy from one circuit to another in transmitters and receivers. This is the system used by the cell membrane and peripheral cytoskeleton to couple energy from the cell and into the cell. As you will recall, the cell membrane is made of two opposing layers of fat molecules that create a capacitor. Just under the cell membrane is a maze of protein called the peripheral cytoskeleton. These two are wired together I parallel in what is known as an RC circuit = resistor/capacitor circuit.

RC circuits work much like you checking account and savings account. In the diagram, assume cash is coming into the top of the circuit, the resistor is your check book and the capacitor is your savings account. As the cash comes in, it flows through your checking account to pay your bills. Any cash left over is transferred into your savings account. On months in which there isn’t enough cash coming in to pay your bills, you take some out of savings and transfer it to it into your checking account to keep things going. So it is with an RC Circuit. Electrons come into the circuit and flow through the resistor (peripheral cytoskeleton of the cell) to keep energy flowing into the cell so it can do its work.

When there are more electrons being delivered by the perineural system, the acupuncture system, water, ionic transfer etc., than are needed to supply the requirements of the cell, the excess is stored in the capacitor (cell membrane). When the cell is inflamed, delivery of more electrons is reduced because the cell becomes somewhat isolated from the delivery system by the edema. Thus the cell must operate on the electrons stored in the cell membrane. This is the same as “running on battery power”

Thus you can see that the control of voltage into the cell is controlled by a Tesla RC Circuit.

Brain imageWe now see that the cell membrane is the brain of the cell. It is a capacitor that stores voltage for the cell to use. It is a microprocessor that contains the functions of the cell by interacting with the environment around the cell. It is a Liquid Crystal that can open or close to allow things to enter the cell or keep them out and also things to exit the cell or keep them in. It is part of a Tesla Rresonating Circuit that allows it to communicate with other cells.

Remember that every cell is designed to run about negative 20-25 millivolts. When cells need to repair themselves the voltage is increased to -50 millivolts. This is controlled by the cell membrane/peripheral cytoskeleton resonating circuit. Since the electrons necessary to allow this to happen are stored in the fat of the cell membrane, the fat is critical to the cell being able to do its work at -20 mV and to repair itself at -50 mV. Without an adequate amount of good fat, the cell membranes can’t function and thus the cell can’t function. You must also remember that cells replace themselves frequently. If you don’t give the cell new building materials including adequate amounts of good fat, the cells will have to make new cells with materials from the worn-out cell it is replacing. Building new things using worn-out parts creates a new thing that doesn’t work much better than the old one it is replacing.

As you can see, cell membranes must be made with good phospholipids (fats) for them to work. Making them with plastic fats prevents this from working correctly. Since all of the brain and nervous system, the liver and every cell membrane are made of fat, you need to eat a lot of good fats to keep making good cells. A normal person is about 20-25% fat. That means you need to eat about 20-25% of your normal body weight every eight months because your body completely replaces itself every eight months.”

…to be continued.

The subject of eating good fats is best left for those that are experts in the field. Dr. Tennant has some good chapters on fat intake, and obesity which can be read in its entirety in his book Healing is Voltage.

In a future article I will share with you how voltage is measured in the organs and the body.

Yours in good health!
