The OT says that man "is made in the image of God".

Recently a scientific explanation of this has been found

by Hammond (1994).

The vertebrate body is well known to be "3-axis Cartesian"

geometrically. This can be seen in any elementary textbook

such as FIG 2. located at:

http://people.ne.mediaone.net/ghammond/FIG2AN3.jpg

where the Medial, Horizontal and Transverse septums form

3-orthogonal planes intersecting in the 3 well known

"cartesian body axes" of the generalized vertebrate body

plan (including humans).

Now, Hammond (1994) has argued that the physical cause of

this 3-axis body plan is simply the "Cartesian structure of

space itself" (Riemannian structure for the more advanced).

However, some people have brought up the question of how

"space" can cause the geometry of a "physical object" such

as the human body.

Turns out of course that it can, and does. For instance,

well known to every mechanical engineer is the axiom that:

"Every machine designed to span N dimensional

space, must have N degrees of freedom, which

in the simplest case, means N orthogonal axes

of movement."

Of course, some have pressed further and demanded to know

where this law comes from.

To answer that, we have to turn to Einstein, where the answer

is given in Chapter I of his well known book:

EINSTEIN A. (1996), The Meaning of Relativity, 5th Edition,

MJF Books, N.Y. ISBN 1-56731-136-9

(1st edition 1922, Princeton U.Pr.)

Here we find Einstein explaining why;

".. in Euclidean geometry there are preferred

systems of co-ordinates, the Cartesian systems

which transform into each other by linear

orthogonal transformations"

(Einstein, ibid p.7)

Generally, Einstein explains that it is historically established

that:

"It is assumed in pre-relativity physics that the laws

of the configuration of ideal rigid bodies are

consistent with Euclidean geometry. What this means

may be expressed as follows: Two points marked on a

rigid body form an interval. Such an interval can be

oriented at rest, relatively to our space of reference

in a multiplicity of ways. If, now, the points of this

space can be referred to coordinates x, y, z, in such a

way that the differences of the coordinates dx, dy, dz

of the two ends of the interval furnish the same sums of

squares,

s2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2

for every orientation, then the space of reference is

called Euclidean, and the coordinates Cartesian."

(Einstein, ibid p.4)

Finally, he concludes:

"The Cartesian systems of coordinates are characterized

by the property that in them the measurable distance

between two points, s, is expressed by the equation

s2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2

(Einstein, ibid p.9)

Lastly, of considerable physical interest, is the following

statement:

"That Euclidean geometry, from this point of

view, affirms something more than the mere

deductions derived logically from definitions

may be seen from the following simple consideration:

Between n points of space there are n(n-1)/2

distances s(u,v); between these and the 3n

coordinates we have the relations:

s(u,v) = [x(u)-x(v)]2 + [y(u)-y(v)]2 + [z(u)-z(v)]2

From these n(n-1)/2 equations the 3n coordinates

may be eliminated, and from this elimination at least

n(n-1)/2 -3n equations in the s(u,v) will result*

since the s(u,v) are measurable quantities, and by

definition are independent of each other, these

relations between the s(u,v) are not necessary

a priori.

*Footnote (Einstein's)

(In reality there are n(n-1)/2 -3n +6 equations.)

(Einstein, ibid p.8)

Now, as you can see from the above, the imposition of

the (Pythagorean/Cartesian) metric:

s2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2

actually physically constrains the geometrical distribution

of points in space (the s(u,v) equations above). A simple

example of this would be for three points in space with

the 3 distances between them being A,B,C.

A

*-----------*

\ /

\ /

B \ / C

Obviously, A cannot be greater than B+C for instance. This

is entirely due to the "Pythagorean Metric" of real space.

So therefore, the Metric "enforces" certain physical geometrical

constraints on real physical bodies. In fact, serious

investigation of this problem by H. Weyl and others early on

uncovered the fact that the "Cartesian Metric" given above

(the quadratic metric) is the ONLY metric that will allow

a physical object to be rotated in real space without being

torn apart due to stretching. This in fact, is "why" real

space has a "Cartesian" (or Pythagorean) quadratic metric.

And this in turn, restricts the possible coordinate systems

to "Cartesian" (meaning orthogonal) coordinate systems.

As you can see, this is not a "mathematical fact", it is an

actual PHYSICAL fact.

So, to sum up, this is how the "metrical structure of space"

or the "geometry of space" PHYSICALLY causes the (Cartesian)

geometry of the human body. the 3-axis orthogonal structure

is the "simplest" Cartesian structure. In fact, this is why

rectangular, Square or Cubic structure is in fact the most

prevalent physical geometric structure in the real world.

the P and D bonding orbitals of the Atom are 3-axis orthogonal

(Cartesian). 90% of all solids crystallize in a cubic or

ortho rhombic system. It explains why a car has 4-wheels,

why a horse has 4-feet, why a house is square, why an airplane

has 3-axis "pitch, roll and yaw", or even why likewise the

human body has "pitch, roll and yaw" sensors in the middle ear

called semicircular canals, etc. etc.

To sum up then, the Cartesian structure of the human body

is PHYSICALLY caused by the "geometry of space" itself.

Now, some may wonder why this is so important, and I will finish

up by simply mentioning this.

The Cartesian structure of the body it turns out causes a Cartesian

structure of the Brain, and the Cartesian structure of the Brain

causes a Cartesian structure in PSYCHOMETRY eigenvector space. Hence,

what we discover is that the geometry of Real Space causes the

geometry of Psychological Space.

The importance of this it turns out, is that just like there is

a "curvature" of real space, it turns out that there is a "curvature"

of psychometric space, only it doesn't cause gravity, it causes

"God". Hence, we wind up with a proof that "gravity causes God".

But... that is beyond the scope of this discussion.

At any rate, we see how it is that the "body plan" or framework

of the human body is identical to the Cartesian Coordinate System

itself. This is commonly called the "Cross" in the Christian Religion.

In fact, in Christianity a human body is traditionally affixed to

the Cross to draw attention to this identity. Fact is, the

body plan (bauplan) of all living things, both animals and plants

is Cartesian (Cross structure), so that the Cross is in fact the

schematic image of Man, and therefore the symbolic "image of God"; the

symbolic image of every living thing. This necessity ensures for

instance that even if there is life on another planet, it is

guaranteed to have a "Cross-structure" (Cartesian) bodyplan, and will

believe in "God" and recognize the Cross of Christianity, a handy thing

to know should we ever encounter them.
