Book Report: Human Heart, Cosmic Heart

Human Heart, Cosmic Heart: A Doctor’s Quest to Understand, Treat, and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease by Thomas Cowan

I personally find immense value in people who discover their own path, particularly when it goes against everything they knew. Such is the case with Dr. Cowan, and what he documents here gets added credence from his experiences as a Doctor who had to find a different way to health.

He looks at a number of different aspects of cardiac disease as we assume it to be, but ask simple questions. Early on a simple statement:

If the blood has stopped moving inside the capillaries, then the force cannot come from the heart. It must arise in the capillaries.

An important part of blood flow, is just that – how does it flow. We are then introduced to the concept of structured water. “Structured water is that the pH of the structured water zone is different from that of the bulk water, which can also be confirmed by careful pH measurements.”

This ability of a hydrophilic substance to convert bulk water into structured water explains why, when you put strongly hydrophilic proteins like gelatin in water under the proper conditions, you create a solid “gel” of structured water. This is how you make Jello, which can give us some insight into some of the properties of this fourth phase. This fourth phase of water forms best at certain temperatures (around 4°C),2 and it highly structures the bulk water, which is why Jello doesn’t leak (unless you heat it and convert it back to water) even though it’s more than 96 percent water by volume.

The biological importance of structured water cannot be overstated. Its presence allows for proper flow in the vasculature, allows proteins to fold properly, and our cells are 70% water, but much of that water is structured under optimal conditions. There is a separation of charges in structured water that allows for movement to propel solutions thru tubes. 

If you do the above tube experiment in a completely lead-encased box, there is no flow within the hydrophilic tube. But if you expose the beaker with the tube of water inside to ambient sunlight or the infrared frequencies coming from the palms of our hands or the electromagnetic field of the Earth, the flow resumes. There are many sources of natural energy that drive this flow, but the most powerful is sunlight. Sunlight is free, abundant, and available to all plants. Sunlight charges the hydrophilic tubes and creates the electrically charged structured water, causing the bulk water within the tube to flow indefinitely, as if life were just a big, blissful, abundant dance.

Sunlight helps blood flow!

This structured water is observed easily in a vortex presentation, where it is moving and creates that V shape like a tornado. This movement helps create the charge separation. He then shows that the heart is a specific shape that promotes a vortex. Pardon the use of so many direct quotes but, his words here are far better than mine!

Location 455:
Frank Chester’s chestahedron is a seven-sided form made of four equilateral triangles and three kite-shaped quadrilaterals. The chestahedron has equivalent surface areas as—twelve edges, three different symmetries—and may offer insight into the form and function of the human heart.

Location 464:
In other words, imagine taking this form, facing the point down and just fitting it into a “regular” box. The apex, or point, does not fall in the center of the cube, but rather slightly off-center. Specifically, the chestahedron sits at an angle of 36 degrees off of center.3 Amazingly, this is the same angle at which the heart sits within the chest: 36 degrees off center to the left of the midline.

Location 475:
The spinning chestahedron formed a vortex—a region where the flow forms around an axis line—in the water. Once the vortex formed, an area appeared in the water, a kind of negative space that appeared attached to the side of the chestahedron. (You can really appreciate this only by seeing the video of this on Frank’s website.5)

Location 515:
As the chestahedron model shows, fluid arriving into the right ventricle converts into a vortex before emerging out of the next gate (the pulmonary valve). This is the crucial point. There are two processes happening simultaneously. The first is the increase in momentum due to the hydraulic ram/gating mechanism described above. But along with the increase in momentum, the form of the blood changes from a laminar flow to a vortex. Furthermore, the activity of the right side of the heart converts the vertically oriented laminar flow of the venous blood to a vortex, a horizontal flow, as the blood goes from the right ventricle to the horizontally positioned lungs.

He uses this information to point out that the heart is not a pump. It does not straighten the aortic arch on a pump, and it also displays a  negative pressure like a hydraulic ram would on systole. He sums with this:

The function of the heart is to create vortices.

As to what causes heart disease in general, it can be traced back to an imbalance between the sypmathetic (fight/flight) and parasympathetic (relax mode) systems. Heart rate variability is a sign of if you can achieve a sufficient parasympathetic tone.  He points out that statins actually act on nitric oxide which helps produce parasympathetic tone, not related to cholesterol.

I took a bunch more notes than I have allocated for space in this breif summary. The tie in he made here to structured water, the vortex creation of the heart (to create structured water) has profound consequences in our ability to influence cardiac health. Simple things like sun and exercise are excellent starting points, he does go on to list others. I have been putting many of these strategies into use in myself and patients alike. Please reach out if you want more info!

This Book Report collection is meant to provide some of the best take-home points from the health and science genre I read. I will continue to go thru my notes of the 160+ and counting (as of January 2019) Kindle books I have on file. To view ALL the notes I saved on this one AND many others without a Book Report post yet, THAT IS ALSO SEARCHABLE, please click here.
