Why afferent & efferent are so important?

Imagine that you have just finished running a tub of hot water for a relaxing bath.  Now you are ready to hop in.  You know that you want to lift your leg into the tub, and your brain creates a mental image and transforms it into energy, sending a message to the tissue cells in order to lift your leg, giving life and mobility so that you are able to raise and lower you leg.

The result is a coordinated movement!

    • Hey Steve,

      Welcome to my blog. A subluxation is a vertebra that has lost its juxtaposition with the vertebra above, the one below or both, to an extent less than a luxation, occluding an opening, impinging upon a nerve and interfering with the flow of mental impulse from brain cell to tissue cell and VICE VERSA.
      Therefore the mental impulse is an innate force, that has been adapted by the innate intelligence of the body which has no specific location, and can be interfered with on both sides of the flow of mental impulse, efferent and afferent. Above down deals with the principle of life which flows from Above-Down-Inside-Out.
      Thank you for your comment. Feel free to comment anytime. 😉

  1. I remember BJ writing that there could be no interference with afferent signals, but I think he professed ii. to be generally located in the brain at that time. Can I assume that for clarity the concept was changed to fit the principles, P. 29 specifically?

    • The concept EVOLVED from the principles! The principles are the governing laws of the fundamentals on which chiropractic stands. The fact that there can be interference with the transmission of innate forces points to the universal complete cycle step 19 (vibration) and 20 (impression). For the purpose of understanding, vibration and impression occurs at the cellular level with the innate intelligence of the cell. Any particle of grey matter within the cell can transform a mental impulse to attend to the need of the moment. Therefore, afferent nerves transmit innate forces from tissue cell to brain cell and are subject to subluxations. In other words, there can be interference with the transmission of innate forces of “both sides” of the cycle.

    • Hey Claude, yes I understand cellular intelligence could initiate a response to environmental change and broadcast it toward the innate brain, but not sure it would be a “mental” impulse. You discussed “any particle of gray matter within the cell”, I am unfamiliar with this concept. Gray matter is unmyelinated nerve, does this exist within the cell?

      • Gray matter is found in glia which is in every cell and modulate neurotransmission. Look it up: “Glia, the other brain cell” Nikhil Swaminathan, Jan-Feb 2011 Discover. It has to be a mental impulse since it has intelligent direction. 😉

      • Hey Claude, you’re telling me the receptor cell has ideation and transformation or intellectual adaptation capabilities?(could only find synopsis on above article)

  2. Yes I am saying that there is an innate awareness for EVERY innate need. It’s not as sophisticated and refined like actual brain cells, nevertheless cellular intelligence is innate intelligence of the cell. Therefore innate intelligence is the METAPHYSICAL process of ideation, transformation and intellectual adaptation at ALL levels of the body. That’s WHY we call it: The innate intelligence of the body. It’s located EVERYWHERE around the body. How could the cell “ask” what it needs otherwise, if not through mental impulses on the afferent side?

      • Steve,

        The loop of cycles ALWAYS involves traveling from the brain via efferent transmission and from the tissue cell via afferent transmission, otherwise there’s no loop, only linear travel. It does NOT take away from the idea of cycles as a continuous loop.

      • Hey Claude, then tell me where does the loop start, with sensation to stimulate an innate response? Or does it begin with innate, gathering universal forces to convert to innate forces for transmitting mental impulses?
