The Common Vein is about using
principles to understand complexity and using images and imagery to educate.
Principles of Biology Biological structures are made of parts which bond to create more complex structure and function in time and space. The purpose of this bonding is a need to create more order and forms of oneness. This event sometimes leads to order and health, but may also lead to disorder and disease.

We will summarize and provide links to each of the major concepts which form foundation principles of the Common vein and of Biology
Everything in us and around us is made of
parts each representing a unit of structure.

PARTS NEED TO BOND
The parts are driven by a variety of forces to bond with other parts

parts are optimally positioned, they connect, bond and function together as a new structural unit with its own need and yearning to bond. This applies to all elements of biology including, the atoms, molecules, cells, organs as well as people.
The Basic Concept
When parts bond they create a new unit
A NEW UNIT –
Parts and Bonds This art piece depicts the universal structural organization in biology. Different parts of a structure (drawn as disc shaped structures in the periphery of the art piece) are bonded to form a new and unique entity (sphere in the center) , with unique function guided by universal and common principles Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0003
Parts in biology bond to create structure and function in time and space. The purpose to create more order and a oneness. This sometimes leads to order and health, and sometimes leads to disorder and disease.
Structure In biology all the parts need to bond in structure and function to create a unique unit that has unique specialised structure and function. The structural parts in turn bond and combine their functionality for the good of the whole. Copyright Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0091
Function In biology all the parts need to bond in structure and function to create a unique unit that has specialised function. The functional parts in turn bond and combine their functionality for the good of the whole. Copyright Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0090 Result
The result may be good or bad, or indifferent leading to more order or more disorder in the world

ORGANELLES BOND TO FORM THE CELL
Organelles of the Cell The organelles of the cell bond in structure and function to create a single entity – the cell The nucleus is the central focus of the cell and it is bonded to the organelles including the smooth and rough endoplasmic reticula, Golgi apparatus, mitochondrion, lysosome, and messenger RNA.

ORGANS BOND TO FORM A BODY
Organs of the Body The organs of the body, bond in structure and function to create a single entity – the body The brain is the central controlling and integrating organ of the body and it is linked to the organs via nerves. Blood vessels, ducts and hormones also serve to connect the organs Copyright Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0072

People and families live in structural units – a home, which in and of itself is like a cell with structural components (rooms) that are linked to each other and the outside world. People also live within suburbs, towns, cities, and countries, each of these following similar structural and functional principles.
FAMILIES BOND TO FORM A COMMUNITY

The Solar System The sun is central and is connected and bonded to its planets and the moon. Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0069
The principle of parts bonding together to form a new and unique oneness in structure and function is universal. The birds and the bees and the sugar nut trees do it and the flowers of course do it. All in nature exhibit these basic principles.

WITHIN OUR HUMAN DOMAIN AND EXPERIENCE..
We do things in our lives that parallel the principles outlined above. For example we build with bricks and cement. The
bricks (parts) that are cemented to each other (bonds) to build walls (new unit). The walls are bonded together to build rooms, and the rooms are connected to form a house, or a new building.
The Brick – An Individual Unit That Needs to Connect In Order to Function and Be Valuable The brick by itself has no function and no value to the world. In order to have value it needs to connect with other bricks. When the brick, a structural unit, connects with other bricks and they organize, a wall is built. The wall as a structural unit, connects with other walls and they organize to form a room, and eventually a building is built. Although the brick is nothing by itself – a weak brick can bring the whole wall and the whole building down. By Ashley Davidoff MD TCV-0039
In the domain of
art and culture we create artwork, music, poetry and literature in an attempt to reproduce what biology does so perfectly and naturally. Each of these disciplines create elements that have parts that are organized and bonded to make a unique oneness. We evaluate the product of these disciplines, book, song, dance movie, art piece with a thumbs up, thumbs down or somewhere in between. When we are moved in a deep way the piece I believe has come close to Oneness – all the parts come together creating a new entity and we stand in awe of the product.

The Hydrogen Atom is the mother of all structure. It consists of a single positive force and a single negative force. This bonding brings about a new unit – hydrogen that has unique characteristics.
The Hydrogen Atom. The positive charge and negative charge interact to form the hydrogen atom- a new entity which function completely differently from its component parts.
Hydrogen is the lightest of the elements and is the most abundant element in the universe, making up approximately 90 percent of all the atoms in the universe.
Hydrogen is always looking for partners to bond with. Two hydrogen atoms bond with an oxygen atom to form the
