Borderland: Protective Skin - Baumgartners
THE FUNCTION OF THE PROTECTIVE SKIN
by Rhetta and Walter Baumgartner
The earth is a living organism, in which the same life processes are
operative as in plants, animals and human beings.
The human body's largest organ, most active excretion channel, hardest
working temperature regulator, most delicate sensor and yet toughest
protector is our skin.
Our skin is a complex veneer of organized layers. An average square
centimeter of skin houses 100 sweat glands, 12 feet of nerves, hundreds
of nerve endings, 10 hair follicles, 15 sebaceous glands, and 3 feet of
The skin contains more than 2 million pores to act as exit points to rid
the body of water, salt and other waste products - about 500 grams worth
each day! An awesome network of nerve receptors enable the skin to
respond instantaneously to touch, pressure, pain and temperature. There
are 1,300 nerve endings per square inch of your fingertip; the only
parts of the body more sensitive to touch are the lips, the tongue, and
the tip of the nose.
Our skin is an intelligent protector and regulator. When the skin
responds to a drop in temperature, it automatically causes muscles to
shiver (to produce more body heat) and surface blood vessels to contract
(to reduce heat loss). The skin also acts as the body's alarm system -
its immediate sensitivity to pain alerts the brain to the presence of
something that could potentially harm other parts of the body.
It is sad that biologists do not recognize the analogies of the Earth's
processes and our human body. Think for a minute on the parallels - our
Earth has all the processes: a circulation system, with blood and lymph,
pulsing rhythm, a breathing process, a digestion and elimination process,
a skeleton - a birth, life and death.
The soil of the Earth serves the purpose of our skin. We know very well
what it means, and suffer great pain, when even the tiniest part of our
own skin gets injured or torn off. Destruction of larger pieces of our
skin leads to death. If one third of a human's skin is damaged,
destroyed or removed, he is doomed to dehydration and death. Nature
makes no exceptions.
The gigantic deskinning operations undertaken in the U.S., Africa, India
and South America have enlightened us to just how quickly man-made
deserts can be created.
Similarly, deep and fast ploughing is dangerous. Our present methods of
tilling and cultivating are gravely damaging the skin of the Earth every
year anew. Apart from other ill effects, it upsets the organised
different layers of the soil. Each stratum has its own biologically
congenial bacterial population, which is indispensable for growth and
If we stop and think for a moment, that in a mere thimble full of top
soil (humus), there live more micro-beings than there are people on the
entire surface of the Earth, we might perhaps grasp the phenomenal
extent of man's wholesale technological destruction being inflicted on
every conceivable living level of his Planet.
The Earth forms on its surface an intangible border zone. Below this
layer lies the zone of negative tension. Above it is the field of
positive tension and in-between these two tension fields the neutral
zone. That girdle contains a filter or subtle network, which, when
intact, lets pass radiations of the highest quality only, whether these
be emanations from the cosmos or the geosphere.
It is known by Toxicologists that humus and the natural inhabitants of
the soil (earthworms and micro-organisms) "clean up" the soil by
processing it and extracting (digesting or chemically binding) PCBs,
heavy metals and toxins not suitable to be released freely into the
"life-supporting stratum" from plants and animals. This border zone
thus acts as filter and protector of life. Yet, year after year, this
filter gets torn up violently through reckless ploughing and
deforestation projects. The soil is then left prone to wasteful
discharge of its precious energies. Infiltration of radiation of
inferior quality follows and this interferes with the sound process of
growth. As a result, structures gradually tend to loosen up and acquire
excessive dimensions. so that cancer-like diseases appear on trees and
plants. These pathological deformations resemble those of human cancer
Every year anew, the Earth is forced to heal and rebuild it protective
border-stratum, together with its intricate filters and for this purpose
it makes use of metallic substances mainly stored in old, dropped off
foliage. Were we able to extract all the metallic values contained in
plants and foliage we would be amazed to see that Nature is incessantly
producing various metals and that our entire vegetation is actually a
unique, huge metal factory. However, owing to our present fertilization
and harvesting methods, not enough of these substances are returned to
the soil, hence the lost trace elements must be replaced otherwise.
Old peasants, who still had a close personal relationship with the soil,
were aware of its genuine needs. They, for instance, fought hard to be
granted special "Cutting Rights", e.g. an entitlement (in Austria) to
cut in forests for their own use the fresh shoots of needle-shaped trees.
These were finely chopped up and spread over the fields in spring. By
this means, the high-quality metallic and mineral substances contained
in the twigs of these trees got back into the soil.
Another old custom was the "Clay-Singing". In a large container a
particular kind of clay was gradually stirred into a cooling off water -
which implies that it had to be done in the evenings. This clay was
highly absorbent. The tonal scale was sung closely above the surface of
the water. When stirring clockwise, the scale was sung upward and when
stirring anti-clockwise, it was sung downward. The actual purpose of
this old custom was to mix the exhaled carbonic acid with the absorbing
clay. In the spring these vessels were taken to the fields and their
contents spread onto the soil by big fans made from leaves, similar to
the performance of priests, when they bless the land. Through this, too,
metallic substances were deposited into the soil, to replace the border
skin. The great Naturalist, Victor Schauberger, sought out
practitioners of some of these old customs to find out why they were
carried on. He found their value after understanding the stratum
functions of the soil. These metallic substances build a stratum of
several layers, superimposed on each other, to act as a filter. The
better this filter functions, the less energy of an inferior kind is
able to penetrate. Hereby, our wise Nature had provided a selection-
process similar to that operative in higher species' skin.
Qualitatively lower manifestations are thus eliminated from reproduction.
Nature imposes inexorable laws, designed to sustain species and increase
quality and man is entrusted with executing this Will. Only when doing
so, will he be blessed.
We will explore the functions of the different layers of the soil and
the natural "Selection Process" of Nature in future articles in "CAUSES".
