Process injury

We continue with the previous experiment and explore the effect of injury on the system..  At time = 25  an external agent killed CA-2. After a short pause,  stem process created a new CA-2. Despite  its complete regeneration,  stem process (CA-1) failed to create a new CA-4. Whenever  its count was  25, it computed an initial state  for CA-4, which proved to be  nonviable, and CA-4 died in the subsequent state. Since injury changed CA-2  phase the system computation failed to create a  viable CA-4. Following injury the system created a new solution which was less healthy than that of an uninjured system.

In the following experiment CA-2 was injured at time = 29. Its right most bit was set to zero (white). While regenerating CA-1 attempted to create a new CA-4 which subsequently died. Ultimately the stem process succeeded creating a healthy CA-4 and the system regained its full health.  (CA-3 is not depicted).

In the last experiment CA-2 was injured at time=39. Nevertheless stem process succeeded to create a viable CA-4, with a different structure, which was eliminated when CA-1[count] = 25, whereupon the system regained its original health. (CA-3 is not depicted.).


After recovering from the injury, the system of the first experiment lost some health and remained  less healthy.  The other two systems also lost  some health,  yet regained it  after a brief interval. A multi-process  system, like our body, may gain or lose health, however it does not  become unhealthy. This concept is simply irrelevant. Unfortunately medicine fails to appreciate this fact and regards structural aberrations as unhealthy.  In reality a structural aberration like the one in the first experiment always maintains some health.


In the first experiment injury lead to the loss of a computation (function), which was previously activated when CA-1[count] = 25.  Since CA-4 was not created,  system structure changed,  which is generally conceived by us (the observer) as disease. Although injury hit only  CA-2, damage was systemic, since the  computation of CA-4 = CA-2 + CA-3 involves the entire system. Structurally, damage may seem to be localized, yet  the functional effect is systemic.

Failing to consider that all processes in the body  interact, medicine distinguishes between localized and systemic diseases. In reality nothing in the body is strictly localized, and diseases are systemic.  The term 'localized disease' is simply  irrelevant. Like in cancer, which is supposed to start as a localized disease evolving into a systemic. From its very beginning cancer is systemic, which is the main argument  of this site,


The injured system  has several ways to repair itself:
1. Stem process may trigger alternative computations, e.g., by setting CA-1[count]=21. The outcome may compensate for the loss, yet the system will be less healthy than the uninjured one.
2. Stem process is killed by apoptosis and replaced by a new one. Apoptosis is a mechanism which removes injured cells (processes).
