01 Overview

The Common Vein is about using principles to understand complexity and using images and imagery to educate.

 

PRINCIPLES

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

Unbonded Parts Floating Randomly  This art piece shows parts of  structure randomly distributed and unbonded and therefore without integration of structure or function..

PARTS NEED TO BOND 

The parts are driven by a variety of forces to bond with other parts

Unbonded Bonds
This art piece demonstrates a generic representation of bonds.  In biology these bonds are commonly related to attractive electrical forces.

When  compatible 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 – ONENESS

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

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.

BONDING OF STRUCTURAL PARTS

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.

BONDING OF FUNCTIONAL PARTS

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.

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.

WITHIN NATURE

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.

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.

ATOMS

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 water molecule.

Oxygen with 8 protons and 8 electrons, bonds with two hydrogen atoms to form the water molecule

These principles we try and  to understand life around us in our environment

and we find that everything in human biology is made of parts, including atoms, molecules, macro molecules, organelles, cells, organs,  and people. The
