CORRESPONDENCE OF THE HUMAN BODY
Lectures by Hugo Lj. Odhner
The body of man may be distinguished into various general divisions, for the purpose of a study of its correspondences, which requires different series.
1. Head, Trunk, Extremities.
2. Head, Body to the knees, Extremities to soles and fingers.
3. Head, Thorax and Arms, Abdomen and Legs.
4. Head, Neck, Body, Feet. (H. 65; $. 10562)
1. An Inmost: Heart.
2. Interiors or Intermediates: Viscera.
3. The Ultimates: Skin, etc
(See A. 100449; compare A. 92766)
1. PRIMRIES: Cortical substances of the Brain.
2. MEDIATES: Viscera - heart and lungs; liver, pancreas, spleen; genital organs.
3. ULTIMATES: Kidneys, eureters, bladder (gall and urine); Mammae, skin, etc.
(AK i:216, note (a)).
Note: Compare A. 100449,
Heart - inmost
1. The Abdominal Viscera, with their Chyle.
2. The Thoratic Viscera, with their Blood.
3. The Cephalic Viscera, with their Purer Blood, Nervous Juice, or "Spirits"
4. The Genital Viscera, (with their Spiritous Fluid?)
F. As to the viscera, they are distinguished into organs, each of which constitutes a province. Some - like Heart, Arteries, and Veins - or like Kidneys, Bladder, and Ureters - would be grouped together as larger provinces.
1. Somatic, or Body, Cells.
Besides cells, the body contains chemicals not incorporated into the cell-structure, but lodged as bone-deposet or carried in the vital fluids.
Dead cells compose the Horny Cuticle.
The cells may be compared to individuals composing the Commonwealth of the Body; yet they are marvellously organized from parts, and are therefore like little communities.
These fibres are of three degrees. (See references Swed. Concordance s. v. "Fibre")
