The Compression and Development of the Body
As soon as external substances get into the Carbon body, there arises for them the opportunity to form new compounds, thereby adding to the number of compounds already in existence there. These new compounds fill not only the centre but also all other parts of the body, consequently causing the centre to be under greater pressure.
Now that the Carbon is saturated with or full of multifarious substances, the effects on the whole body is even greater. Outward development, due to the pressure exerted on the centre by the concentration of the compounds, is just out of the question. This is particularly true, because given such a circumstance all the Rayleigh waves are apt to do is to move the molecules inwards, not outwards.
Though it is actually the whole body that is crowded with the various types of molecules, the illustrations here, however, place particular emphasis on the condition of the central part of the Carbon body—the darkest part in the middle. Such is the circumstance, only the softest and weakest areas are the ones that are likely to develop (Illustration 1). Since it is at the core where the pressure first begins (because of the entry of external substances), it is therefore here where the pressure is the greatest. In the addition of the parts of the body, the tendency is to choose those parts that are most likely to develop.
As implied by the word “most”, there must naturally be only one area where such development is possible. This area will first expand in its effort to identify its weakest part, thereby causing its core to stretch lengthwise. No matter in which direction the core stretches, it will, by dint of the earth’s gravity, always elongates horizontally, unless something comes in its way.
It is perhaps necessary to clarify here that the core of the Carbon body referred to here is by no means the core of the Cell-to-be. Unlike the present day Cell, which is generally classified into two parts, i.e. the core and the body, the core of the Carbon body then had never known such classification. Everything was then still very simple in form. It is only for the purpose of making a distinction between locations that different terms and pictures are being used.
Illustrations 1, 2, 3, and 4 show a Carbon body as seen from above, while illustrations 5, 6, and 7 are the side-on view of the Carbon body. Illustration 1 depicts the presence of porous Carbon with thin walls capable of taking hold of the various molecules, either the ones drifting in the air or those from places where they have been stranded on the earth.
Illustration 2 shows how the central part of the Carbon body breaks apart due to the pressure from around the centre.
Illustration 3 shows how pressure is exerted on the whole body, not only on the centre.
Illustration 4. So saturated is the body with molecules and compounds that the passages crack and break up.
Illustration 5 maps the destruction of all of the passages thereby causing parts of the skin surface to crumble down to the earth at the time the body expands sideways and just a few moments prior to division of the body.
Illustration 6 shows the Carbon body divided into two, with each divided part seemingly rotating. There is not a single entity in this universe which, when divided, could ever ensure that its parts separate with absolute precision, i.e. without the one or the other part twisted off even at the slightest angle. (Relate all these with the text under the heading “Impossibilities and Possibilities” in the pages that follow).
This is particularly true when the entity is in its vertical position. The parts twist the instant they separate, though this could be as small as only 1/1000 degree. Similarly is the case with the divided parts of the Cell-to-be, commonly known as the “daughters”-cell-to-be: they naturally twist, though these may not be in such an infinitesimal degree, since the process of the dismantling of the compounds itself is relatively not simultaneous.
Illustration 7. In both the separated “daughters”-cell-to-be, the debris of the passages of the pores still sticking to their bodies, are slowly pushed out. Because of the strong bond between the core and the molecules around it, each of the two cores resulting from the division of the original single core then undertakes to share out the molecules around them. Thus emerge two new Cells-to-be, each having molecules equal in number to the other’s.
