Human Body and Process
Our body is made up of
Our body parts (organs) are made of of cells, and the cells with molecules and the molecules with atoms. Human body contains about 10 trillion (1013) cells. Their size varies in between 1 and 100 µm. The diameter of an atom ranges from 0.1 to 0.5 nm.
The atom is a basic unit of matter that consists of a dense central nucleus surrounded by a cloud of negatively charged electrons. The nucleus contains one or more protons and may also contain neutrons. Protons have a positive charged and neutrons have no charge at all. Electrons have a negative charge and are very small compared to protons and neutrons.
The flow of electrons is electricity. Electric fields are created by differences in voltage.Magnetic fields are created when electric current flows.
How many atoms present in our body?
We need 6*1014 atoms to cover completely a pin head! Can you imagine how many atoms are in our body?
A water drop contains 5,40,000, 00 atoms. 80% of our body consists of water. So, crores of atoms present in our body and generating electromagnetic energy. This energy is responsible for all the life processes in our body. So we can define our body as a machine working based on the electromagnetic forces.
Ex:Food digestion requires electromagnetic force Mixing of oxygen into blood is due to magnetism Nervous system utilizing electricity for the transmission of signals
Human body and Electricity
Harun Yahya,(2007), written an excellent book ‘ The Miracle of Electricity In The Body’ and the matter presented in this section is taken from his book. For the details, please visit www.harunyahya.com. www.harunyahya.com - www.harunyahya.net
There are practically no non-electrical systems in the human body
- Under appropriate conditions, imbalances of electrical charge initiate a flow of electrons, which is referred to as electricity.
- Without electrical energy, our bodies would be unable to function.
- Our bodies are equipped with bio-electrical cables, known as nerves, millions of meters in length. Information is transported along these cables at a speed approaching that of light.
- All nerve fibers have electrical charges.
- The electricity outside the fiber is positively charged and the inside is negatively charged.
- Positively charged ions enter the nerve sheath while negative ions move to the exterior of the nerve fiber, thus setting up an electrical current. As a result, the relevant muscle or organ functions.
- Nerves interpenetrating our bodies consist of hundreds, and sometimes, thousands of nerve cells called “neurons.”
- We can compare a neuron to an electrical switch that goes on or off.
- Neurons receive signals from neighboring neurons and transmit to adjacent neuron.
- All neurons contain, short fibers known as dendrites, that carry electrical signals, and a long fiber known as axon that carries signals for long distances.
- A neuron can transmit 1,000 nerve signals a second.
Dendrites and Axons
- Dendrites consist of a large number of short protrusions and receive reports and transmit these to the cell body.
- Every neuron possesses up to 1, 00,000 branching dendrites.
- These single-cell fibers of the sciatic nerve may extend a meter or even longer.
- A single axon is capable of dividing itself into as many as 10,000 terminals, connected to a different neuron and permit more than one region to be stimulated at the same time.
- Single neuron can receive signals from more than 1,000 other neurons, and can carry a million different pieces of information at the same time.
- We can compare the axon terminals at the end of dendrites to plugs fitting into sockets.
- The gaps or spaces between the axons of two neurons are known as synapses. Communication between the two neurons is established and maintained at these terminal connection points.
- In the same way that a telephone switchboard permits a large number of callers to talk to one another at the same time, so a neuron can communicate with many other neurons by means of these synapses.
- Synapses halt weak signals and permit strong ones to pass. This is accomplished merely by very specially arranged groups of molecules
- The signals transmitted electrically along the neurons continue across synapses in chemical form.
- These chemicals, known as neurotransmitters, produced in the body of the nerve cell, are carried along the axon and stored in synaptic vesicles in the axon terminals. Each vesicle contains some 5,000 transmitter molecules.
- Each neuron is like a chemical factory producing neurotransmitters to be employed in communications.
- When a neurotransmitter emerges, it crosses the synapse and the protein receptor on the receptive neuron’s cell membrane sets a protein into motion.
Cells and Electric Energy
Every cell is like a miniaturized battery. Surrounding the cell is a liquid rich in potassium, and the inside is full of liquid high in sodium. If two mined, they react and an electricity emerges as a side product.
- The electricity in our cells, is carried by ions. During the movement of ions, cells produce electricity.
- In all cells, there is a voltage difference in electrical charge along the cell membrane.
- When the cell feels the need for electricity, it opens one of channels in the cell membrane, in order to complete the electrical circuit.

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers produced by the nervous systems of higher organisms in order to relay a nerve impulse from one cell to another cell. The two cells may be nerve cells, also called neurons, or one of the cells may be a different type, such as a muscle or gland cell. A chemical messenger is necessary for rapid communication between cells if there are small gaps of 20 to 50 nanometers.
Neurotransmitters and Hormones
Neurotransmitters travel across synapses in neuron while hormones travel across the blood stream. Hormones are secreted by glands while neurotransmitters are secreted by vesicles in the synaptic bulb.

Source of Neurotransmitters
Major neurotransmitters are manufactured inside neurons and then used as needed. Neurons specifically use two key amino acids- Phenylalanine and Glut-amine. They are available in our foods, such as,
- Brown Rice
- Folic acid
- Orange juice
- Dairy Products
- Protein rich food
- Carbohydrate rich food
* Stress depletes Neurotransmitters *
Brain produces different levels of electrical activity depending on the amount of information it is processing. There are eight types of brain waves measured in Hz (amount of electric activities for unit of time).
1. Alpha Waves Characteristics:
- frequency: 8-13 Hz
- produced when sitting in relaxed position with eyes closed
- Gets relaxation
- Learn quickly
- Enhanced problem solving capacity
- Enhanced creativity
- Enhanced athletic performance
- Reduction of fear and anxiety
2. Beta Waves Characteristics:
- frequency: 14-30 Hz
- The most common form of brain waves
- Associated with heightened mental activity
- Associated with states of anxiety
3. Theta Waves Characteristics:
- frequency: 4-7Hz
- more common in children
- Walter Study (1952) found these waves to be related to displeasure, pleasure, and drowsiness
- Sleep with dreams
- Highly creative state
4. Delta Waves Characteristics:
- frequency 0-4 Hz
- deep sleep without dreams
- slow wave patterns
- release of growth hormone
5. Gamma Waves
6. Kappa Waves
7. Lambda Waves
8. Mu Waves
Positive thoughts produce Alpha state, and the state drives towards successful Academic, Healthy and Peaceful life
Computer is designed in such a way the mankind can’t live without it. To operate a computer, one should take training to know the commands. In addition to this we need the following:
- Electrical power
- Hard disc with required memory
- Key board
- Mouse / Touch screen
- Virus protection
- Knowledge in Typing
- Computer is designed using the human body mechanisms.
- It needs training for operation.
- Similarly, human body is designed by mother’s body.
- The human body consists of most complicated mind, emotions,electrical system, telephonic system, TV system etc.
- To drive such a complicate machine, one need training to use properly.
Brain – Recording
- In our body auto save button is in ‘on‘ position, since birth.
- Our feelings, emotions and thoughts have been recording in brain through nervous system.
- As we can recall them, we should accept that they are recording in the brain.
- Positive thoughts record using comparatively less intensity of electricity.
- Negative thoughts record with relatively high intensity.
- Positive thoughts release happy mood neurotransmitters and Negative thoughts, sadness promoting neurotransmitters.
- Happy mood keeping neurotransmitters keep the body parts healthy and the sadness promoting neurotransmitters damage the body parts.
- Happy mood support balanced state of breathing and keep blood circulation to all the parts of body.
- Sadness caused imbalanced breathing and restricts blood circulation to the certain parts of the body which slowly gets damaged.
- During the meditation, there are no feelings and there is no recording in brain.
- During the meditation, alpha- waves are produced and mind stay in peaceful condition.
- Meditation leads to Samadhi state, where all the life processes halted.
- There is a direct link between number of breaths / minute and length of life span (less number of breaths cause more length of life span).
Those maintain balanced breathing throughout the day; will have the sound health and lengthy life.
Where the recording goes after death?
- Human being used to perform good or bad karma (some call punya or papa).
- The feelings / emotions related to the karma record in our brain as memories.
- We are storing the computer data in CDs, Pen drives etc., which are nothing but electro – magnetic disks. If it is not disturbed, it retains forever.
- Our brain is also an electro- magnetic disc, where the memories can’t be erased. We may forget things, but the original recording is intact.
- After death the memories enter the Nature with the ‘soul’. The soul with recorded karma / born as a baby in a suitable family, to experience past karma.
Why we need to lead good life?
- For healthy & peaceful life, our breathing must be in balanced state.
- Only Good deeds keep breathing in balanced state.
- Examples for good deeds – service to others, prayer, hearing melodious music, satsung, meditation.So, for healthy & peaceful life we must lead good life.
To whom we ask about the life?
- A child learns several things from the teachers, parents, friends and the environment.
- If we have a doubt in maths, we ask math’s teacher, similarly other subjects.
- To ride a simple bicycle we take training.
- Our body is equipped with a most complicate mind and inherent emotions.
- To drive this body also, training is required?
- There are great people in India, who done research on human life.
- According Gautama Buddha, Meditation is the ultimate solution to understand the human life.
- Most of the people are unable to take six minutes meditation, but Gautama Buddha, got ability for six hours.
- Lord Buddha made experiments in mind laboratory with an instrument, called meditation.
He concluded that “the knowledge acquired throughout the life, either good or bad shall not perish, even your body perish” “present karma is key to the future, and past karma is cause for present life”
By birth our life is conditioned! Think are these in our hand?
While taking birth
- Brothers/ Sisters
- Beauty/ Handsome
- Can we get whatever we want
- Can we get Good result for hard work?
- Can good people always get Good result?
- Can we get a desired job?
- Can we Check accidents?
- Can we decide our life span?
Is there any reason for the following?
- Some die immediately after birth, some at 100 years.
- By birth some are physically challenged, some others have good physique.
- Some are intelligent, some others idiots.
- Personality varies from person to person.
- Some are wealthy by birth, others poor.
- Good students fail to secure jobs, lazy students secure good jobs.
Is the Human life beyond scientific?
- Human life is in the midst of the nature.
- Planetary movements are in order.
- Seasons are systemic (unless we disturb).
- Ocean tides are timely.
- Atmospheric gases maintain same ratio (unless we disturb).
- Water cycle is systematic.
All the above are explained scientifically. Can’t we explain human life scientifically?
There are several questions unanswered in the minds of many people. Some of them are,
- Is there a God?
- If yes, where is he?
- What is his shape?
- Is there Heaven? If yes, where is it?
- Is there Hell? If yes, where is it?
- Is the Good person living happily?
- Is the bad person get punishment?
- Is there Rebirth?
Is there a God?
- To know it we should understand the ‘Atom’, the basic unit of the universe.
- Each and every matter is made up of atoms. Each atom producing electro-magnetic force and the force is omni-present.
- The god is nothing but electro-magnetic force, which also called the Soul.
- The puranas and mahatmas explained that the god is ‘shapeless’.
Where is the heaven?
- It is on the Earth only
- It is nothing but happiest moments in our life
Ex. Newly married days, birth day of child and so on
Where is the Hell?
- It is on the earth only
- The movements with severe suffering Ex: burning in fire, met with an accident and some part broken, torturing by some body and so on.
- We are born with a body run by a ‘super computer’ where the natural laws satya, dharma, nyaya etc., are loaded as programs decide the reward or punishment to the person.
- Except from the inner body, it is not possible to record and award the rewards or punishments to the crores of people external world.
- It all depends on the ‘Karma’
* Which one you like, Heaven or Hell *
