Orders Of Magnitude
By Atom Bergstrom
The body is HIERARCHIC, constructed of “levels, entities, and constituent parts.”
Looking for cancer is like “Where’s Waldo?”
When someone “acquires” cancer, it’s NOT in the genes.
So where is it? Is it in the organelles, cytoplasm, interstitial fluids, organs, or has it gone systemic?
Each location requires a different treatment.
Each order of magnitude — from organelle to systemic — is harder to treat.
Systemic cancer is inevitably metastatic cancer. It’s in the blood and lymph and other bodily fluids.

“Dr. Revici defined the hierarchy of biological organization in its various parts, from the smallest to the largest: Sub-Nuclear, Nuclear, Cellular, Tissular, Organ/Metazoic and Systemic. Through his research, Revici determined the anabolic/catabolic effect of how elements behave in each of the different layers of organization. An example is that calcium has strong catabolic activity at the cellular level, but magnesium has catabolic activity at the tissular levels. Zinc is anabolic at the cellular level, but chlorine is strongly anabolic at the level of the tissues.”
Barclay Moon Newman (“The Smooth Slide Up to Life: Discoveries now Being Revealed, in the Twilight Zone between Life and Non-Life, have Astonished the Scientific World,” Scientific American, May 1937) wrote …
“… there is, from electron to man, a hierarchy of combinations of particles. Electrons, protons, and neutrons unite to form atoms, which, in turn, join to produce molecules. The compounds so produced may be simple, as in the case of a water molecule, or exceedingly complex, as in the case of the proteins, like albumin whose molecules make up the largest part of egg white. And with increasing intricacy along certain lines of molecular architecture, there is steadily closer approximation to that group of properties which, all together, signify a living thing.”
Evan Eisenberg (The Ecology of Eden, 1998) wrote …
“Anyone who wants to take literally the Gaian image of the earth as a single organism (which no present evidence warrants) should at least keep in mind that the various cells of the body are segregated in their own organs and tissues. The tender cells of the brain must be shielded from the raw blood that courses through the rest of the body, the contents of the kidneys are toxic to other tissues, and so on. Above all, the functioning of the various tissues depends on their separateness. Put a frog in a blender and the result will contain all the ingredients of a frog, but will not act like one.”

“The biological levels of organization of living things arranged from the simplest to most complex are: organelle, cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organisms, populations, communities, ecosystem, and biosphere.”
