Ubiquitous Bioelectricity

We close our discussions of bioelectricity by referencing several recent blog posts. In http://jasscience.blogspot.com/2023/09/chemical-elements-coherently-created.html we mentioned the positive and negative charges present in all chemical elements which comprise ordinary matter. These electrical charges are present in all matter and in all of our physical body systems.

Our body systems communicate with each other by the neural binary code which could not function apart from electrical charges. Even before our body systems communicate with each other, their architecture must be in place so the various systems are integrated. 

In our sports-immersed culture we draw several analogies, especially in the realm of professional leagues. Team owners compete with other owners to employ the most skilled players. The players comprise the team’s architecture. Strategies sometimes involve electronic radio signaling in addition to visual and auditory signaling. Football coaches have electronic radio communication systems in place with their quarterbacks; baseball managers have radio communication systems in place with their catchers who contact the pitcher by radio on miniature receivers. It is not enough to have a good team roster—players must also communicate effectively. We link a commentary from a blog posted in 2017: https://jasscience.blogspot.com/2017/02/system-integration.html 

Bioelectricity is a product of the genius of the Divine Creator. If we believe the physical features in our environment were designed by God In the Beginning, we do not attribute characteristics of matter such as the electrical nature of atoms and molecules to a naturalistic accident.

Most non-scientists may not investigate the characteristics of matter in much detail. For example, they may be satisfied that matter is composed of atoms consisting of protons, neutrons, and electrons: Protons have a positive electrical charge; electrons possess a negative electrical charge. But there is more to the story. Exotic particles make up atomic particles. Some exotic particles are “force carriers.” Scientists discover many characteristics of matter at the quantum level—the scale of the VERY small.

We began our discussions of bioelectricity with two posts on forces. The Creator has permitted humanity to understand physical forces caused by bioelectricity. God created these phenomena as they relate to the miracle of human life and human consciousness.

Before we dismiss the topic of bioelectricity, we reprint two quotes of special interest to particle physicists—scientists who discover the many elementary particles which compose matter. The following quotes originate from an article in Simple Science:

“The Standard Model has a defined number of key particles: elementary and composite. Elementary particles are quarks, leptons, and bosons. These particles then join together to produce the more well-known particles, such as the neutron and the proton. Such particles are known as composite particles, as they are composed of two or more of these elementary particles.” (The same article describes an electron): “A lepton is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. The best known of all leptons is the electron.”

Without ubiquitous electrical charges in our bodies life would not exist. In the field of developmental biology Quanta Magazine states, “Researchers are building a case that long before the nervous system works, the brain sends crucial bioelectric signals to guide the growth of embryonic tissues.” Other researchers are intent on discovering a bioelectrical component of human consciousness. So far, this quest has not been successful. We believe human consciousness is a transcendent gift of the Creator of All Things.
