When joining does not pass off satisfactorily the open palate and the harelip will arise . . .
Immediately at the beginning you will find the drawing of the principle scheme of the human. The drawing on the home-page that is.
Of course this scheme is extensively considered, especially in the short chapter about the intelligent system that builds up the body.
Storing data would make no sense if there would not be someone who can read them and make use of them.
The first one to start storing data must have known that he would have successors who would be able to read- and use them.
So in every living being there has to be an independent, intelligent factor that makes use of the stored data (stored on the genes in higher life forms) for building up that living being!
It is this intelligent system, this technician we should actually say, whose data are integrated in the X-chromosome ,
that is not recognized by the followers of Darwinism and Creationism.
One sees an infinite series of co-incidents with perhaps a stray natural law, the other sees a consecutive series of divine interventions,
a kind of divine indulging in a hobby: now if I would bend this little bill here a bit up
and that other one a bit down . . . . . . . then I might have a look at the results in, let's say, about twenty five years from now . . . . . . . . hmmm . . . . . . . . yes . . . . . . I must note that down on
My perpetual calendar . . . . . . . . . .
Darwinism has no answer to the question why genders and sexual orientations exist. In point of fact it has no answer to anything. And that a round bolder (the fittest) will roll further than
a square one we had already understood ourselves.
Creationism could be the answer for those who believe in such things, but then they should accept that what they see around them in this vale of tears is the poor work of a God who
clearly cannot cope with the problems he himself created . And, therefore, is not almighty!
So there has to be, as is explained in Homo Combinatus, a third possibility: someone who is able to create life but is not almighty, who sows and reaps Life
the way we sow and reap Grain.
Homo Combinatus, pages 32/33:
NO ONE IS OBLIGED TO READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION, FORM AN OPINION ABOUT IT OR TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.
THIS APPLIES ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO KNOW BETTER.
Who has an interest in reproduction?
If the phenomenon we call 'life' would not be created but would arise it would not have a single reason to reproduce or even to maintain itself.
One should always keep in mind that we did not commence as a human but as a tiny watery lump without any notion about present, past or future.
So the living creature must be forced to reproduce and maintain itself! With reason, obviously. And indeed: the typical characteristic of living beings is that they are supplied with a metabolism.
They are able to release energy from the matter, energy that would never have been released in any other way.
So living organisms have the task to release some kind of energy from dead matter. They themselves do not have any benefit from it, they die and then it is over. Humans come, humans go,
not a single one will stay! When time has come the Grim Reaper comes by to harvest them and to take the stored energy from them. And it goes the same for all other living beings.
That energy is apparently meant for the benefit of other life forms that are extant in space, in the universe or whatever one wishes to call that, which surrounds us.
Those other life forms are not able to reach that energy directly, they need the mediation of the living being as we know it, the same way we ourselves need other living beings.
This quotation forms only a limited part of the paragraph in question and with that of the argumentation.
Within every animal species, in every individual that belongs to it, these very intelligent, independently working technicians are constantly improving things.
Adaptations - some of which will lead in the end to the appearance of new species - are consciously introduced in the reproductive cells, on the basis of
the data that are entered during the life of every individual.
It is a nice thing that, in the course of your life, you obtain knowledge your descendants might benefit from, which may or may not happen co-incidentally.
But we may assume, may we not, that you do not have the illusion that you yourself are the one who stores such data in the genes, nor that they land there
Only a very intelligent personage - let us put it that way - that is very directly involved, is able to perform the storage of those data.
Just like their reading and processing, of course.
It is obviously out of the question that something as complicated as the human body could be knocked together through a nearly endless series of chance hits,
whereas in the meantime - the sky is the limit here, as it seems - a male and a female sexual organ are fighting a war to the death for supremacy:
the utterly nonsensical but yet ineradicable myth of 'the battle of the sexes'.
Concerning the latter: the winner, too, would come out of this battle severely battered and, subsequently, useless for reproduction.
To the 'yet indifferentiated' sexual organs two options are coupled, a male and a female one. If there is a Y-chromosome present the female option is removed,
if no Y-chromosome is present then the male option is removed. This happens in the seventh week of the pregnancy.
Consequently the body is developed in the male or the female direction with the help of the remaining option.
No battling at all, everything is done well-thought out.
The way the brain functions cannot be seen through without understanding that one has to do with two coupled, independent individuals.
Only if that is understood - the construction of our body is clear enough, for that matter - it will be possible to penetrate
the structure of the eyesight, for instance to comprehend why the nerves of the eyes are split up and how it is possible that after a stroke
(= a cerebral hemorrhage) only one half of the world may remain visible.
Nowhere else in our body it becomes so clearly visible that our structure has been well thought-out as with this splitting up of the nerves
of the eyes, which can be very well explained. You will find this comprehensive explanation in Homo Combinatus.
To a lot of people the foregoing summary may be somewhat elusive and perhaps even unreal.
Therefore we give you below a comprehensive quotation from the first chapter of Homo Combinatus.
Remember, however, that also this in itself rather extensive quotation is only a limited part of the complete argumentation.
We are accustomed to seeing ourselves as a whole. People who claim to be consisting of various personalities, or who are at loggerheads with other personalities that seem to live within their body as well, are taken for a fool. It is taken for a 'mental problem' or 'they have a screw loose'. They are considered to be 'paranoid'.
When we read that with the right half of our brain we drive the left half of our body we nod obediently; Science once more 'gained some Triumph' or so it seems.
It does not penetrate that there is something strange about this story, if only because we often get only part of the facts dished up.
What we fail to notice is the following. Roughly explained: the left half of our brain is connected to the right side of our body and the right half of our brain to the left side of our body. Up to here we follow. But then it comes. There are people in whom the connection between both halves of the brain has been severed (meaning 50.000.000 little threads being cut in two) and what do we observe in such cases?
Both halves suddenly start to live their own life! All of a sudden the right half cannot make any use of the right eye and the left half has to manage with only that right eye (in reality things are a bit different, later on - in the chapter that is dedicated to the construction of the eyesight - we will see what they are exactly like).
Perhaps things would not be so bad if some really creepy development would not be occurring: each of both halves suddenly behaves completely independently. It reacts only to what is dished up exclusively to it (by way of a test) and appears to feature even its own taste. To make a long story short: as soon as the little connecting threads are broken, most certainly a matter of two separate, independent personalities will arise!
A rather obvious conclusion imposes right away: people who think that they are not alone within their body might really have a screw loose! All right, all right, a little thread loose.
But what about those who have every little thread fixed? The left half of the brain takes care of the right side of the body, the right half of the brain of the left side of the body. Those two halves of the brain are among other things connected to each other by means of those so many millions of little threads (come to think of it: someone must have been doing some counting for quite a lot of hours!).
But what, for goodness' sake, does it matter if they are independent all the same and look upon everything in their own view? One half sees a fly approaching and smacks out, the other one, who at the same moment wanted to transport a cup of tea to the mouth sees the liquid fling into the air. And when they have a biscuit with their tea they both try to grasp it before the other one can reach it.
Well, that just is not the way things work!
Presumably this is not merely a connection between the two halves of the brain, no, this is a matter of a coupling. If one eye looks to the left the other one does so, too. And if through one nostril the air is analyzed, it happens through the other one at the same time. A beautiful example of co-operation, it is quite like riding a tandem together!
Well, perhaps not yet . . . for now we are still not where we want to be.
The two halves of the brain are coupled, that is clear to us by now. But still: each of them has its own opinion; still: one will try to drag the other one along in the direction it likes best itself. And then each one of us may establish that he sees through both eyes, smells through both nostrils and is able to move all limbs.
Now how is this possible?
Do we find ourselves somewhere between the two halves of our brain? Exactly in the middle between both ears, perhaps? That is not such a bad answer at all. It might very well be possible. Only . . . why go through all this trouble with division in two halves, that need to be patched up again with so many little threads and all those other queer things, then? It would be far more obvious if, for instance, one half would perform the mental work and the other would take care of the physical side.
What is more: when those little threads are broken nothing would be able to function anymore! But still those two half brains carry on as if everything is peachy keen.
Now what do we really see when we behold our brain, with everything that is attached to it?
A brain that has been cleaved heavy-handedly and afterwards been patched up again by means of some little threads??
That would really be a bit too illogical.
Everyone with an open mind who looks at a picture of a brain can come only to the conclusion we reached previously: here we do not see two split up halves of a brain but two coupled halves.
Two halves? Two completely independently functioning half brains? Impossible. These are not two coupled halves but two coupled brains!
The misleading appearance of two hemispheres, that gives the impression of two half brains results from the rounded shape of the two databases that surround the brains proper.
Well, that is rather funny, you may think. Two complete brains with two half bodies? That would come down to one half of each of those two brains being a mere appendage! A curious affair.
We will have to scrutinize this.
In our genetic material, our genes so to speak, we find a 'complete blueprint' of our ancestors. So a complete blueprint means the complete building-scheme of two complete humans, incorporated in the two rows of chromosomes within each cell. One row originates from our father, the other from our mother. These two blueprints are joined together, so, if no arrangements were made, out of that some sort of higgledy-piggledy Siamese twin should arise, either within one single skin or not.
We already briefly mentioned the phenomenon called cross-over. In this cross-over an exchange of components of the chromosomes or of the DNA takes place, or whatever way one wishes to express it. It is rather obvious that during this process the best parts or the most recent versions are exchanged, which is quite possible for instance in the case of skeleton and muscles, yielding some symmetric Siamese twin at least, instead of one that is higgledy-piggledy.
As to software things are a bit more complicated. Half programs cannot exist, if you twine parts of various programs, a laborious and long lasting period of testing will follow and it would be uncertain whether a good functioning whole would ever get off the ground.
Moreover, there is no time for all this testing, for the programs for internal control are, by way of speaking, already in action as they are built up. Every kind of intervening tinkering is fundamentally wrong here.
Anyway, you still will not achieve anything that way of course. A further integration will have to take place. These two humans - one in each row of chromosomes - will have to be joined together in such a way that they will be able to reasonably function as a whole. One should not lose sight of the fact that this concerns two humans, condemned to each other by fate, one of which you cannot just do in!
Their brains, which may differ quite a bit, are simply not meant for controlling an extra body.
But then, where do we go from here?
A two-headed management on a four-legged support? Well, such things do indeed occur from time to time but clearly by way of mistake. In that case one would be dealing with a genuine Siamese twin.
However, there is a more elegant and more obvious solution: the exteriors, the skeletons with the skin and the muscles, which were balanced into two sides already, are lengthwise halved, stretched somewhat here and there and glued together. This yields a wonderful one-headed management on two legs with the virtually completely unaffected rest of the bodies inside this fine whole.
So on further consideration there are no two complete brains and two half bodies but two complete brains and two virtually complete bodies!
