Chapter 11 - The liver of the Earth
1. Like the spleen, the liver should be considered one of the most important inner organs. In the animal body, in the human body, and also in the body of the Earth, the liver is the organ responsible for the excretion of poisonous substances, which are found in all nourishment along with the vital nutritive substances. This idea deserves a more specific explanation.
2. Every human being and animal would die after taking in nourishment if the body were not in possession of an organ that avidly attracts all poisonous substances (mainly carbon and cyanide) and gathers them in a particular receptacle and eliminates them partly through the urinary duct.
3. æ[he liver performs such activities. As far as its inner structure is concerned, the liver is similar to the spleen. As regards its outer form, however, it is more similar to the lungs. The liver consists of a multitude of aligned closets or small chambers, as does the spleen, though the liver’s chambers are more closely connected to one another. Next in importance, four different vascular tubes cross the liver along these chambers as uniform continuous organs that are connected with one another through even smaller passages.
4. Some of the vessels have their source in the heart, and carry ample blood into the liver so that it may be satisfied with the necessary amount of carbon and a proportionately small dose of cyanide. Only then is the blood ready to effect digestion in the appropriate digestive vessels of the organs, and, further, to form the outer skin. Following that, this blood is no longer useable internally; that is why liver ailments are easily recognizable mainly on the outer skin, as in jaundice.
5. A second kind of through-flowing vessel originates in the stomach and leads to the liver. It accommodates all watery substances in which the cyanide is eliminated in a very diluted form, and, through the small connecting vessels of the liver, released into the blood in the proper amounts. The larger part of the poisonous cyanide is drained off from the liver, through the kidneys to the bladder, and eventually completely eliminated from the body through the urinary tract as a useless substance.
6. The third type of vessel also begins in the stomach and, in particular, connects its mucous membranes with the gall bladder in the liver. Through these channels or passageways, the mucous carbon, or bile substance from the nourishment in the stomach, is excreted and stored, primarily in the gall bladder. Then, should the stomach lack these digestive substances in the nourishment received, the liver must again call on the stomach for its supply, because all digestion is a form of fermentation and some nutritive substances are more capable of fermentation than others. When some of the nourishment contains too little of the fermenting substances, it then becomes necessary to store a supply in the liver, and whenever there is a lack of such substance the liver can offer its assistance.
7. The fourth kind of vessel is a little air vein that originates in the lungs; these veins turn and wind through the liver. The gall bladder is made up partly of these, and is continuously kept under an even tension. At the same time, a steady amount of atmospheric air and oxygen is supplied to the gall bladder through these vessels, so that the bile substances contained therein do not ferment over much. Should this occur, the fermentation produces malignant substances in the body, out of which inflammatory ailments such as rheumatism, gout, and the like come into being. It is therefore very harmful for a person to remain in a place where he inhales only stifling air without enough oxygen, instead of vital, pure atmospheric air.
8. By now we have become acquainted with the four kinds of vessels in the liver, whose action and reaction is effected by the electric fluid, just as it is with the spleen, where it is produced in the aforementioned chambers through the spleen’s rubbing and grinding motion. The electric fire in the liver is initially stimulated mainly through that of the spleen; thus the liver would be dead without the spleen.
9. In every human being and animal, the liver has its location around the stomach. And in the Earth, it is of course located in the same area, but on a larger scale. Its function is the same as the liver of animals, although it executes but a secondary function when compared to the primary action of the spleen. And yet it should not therefore be considered a lesser organ with respect to the vitality of each and every animalistic organic body. Everything that the Earth’s crust contains within itself and produces on the surface comes from the liver of the Earth. The water of the oceans comes from the liver, and is essentially nothing more than the eliminated urine of the body of the Earth, which changes through evaporation into clouds and, in the air, is changed into sweet nourishment by the influence of the light.
