Abstract

Structure, occurrence, and functions of microtubules are reviewed. The theoretical principles of bioholography are outlined and the neuronal microtubular system is offered as an anatomical substrate for such a mechanism. This entails microtubules acting as coherency inducing, dielectric wave guides and resonators for atmospheric ultraviolet radiation which is refracted by the stratum corneum and other tissues. The proposed corporeal energy and its pathways are correlated with Ch'i, the ancient Chinese life energy and medium of acupuncture.
