Human Electric Orange
Three primitive tissues
On the fourth day of the pregnancy, the human embryo, analogous to an orange, begins to form the nervous tissue, absolutely necessary for the electricity of love. An orange has three parts: (1) the skin; (2) the flesh; and (3) the strands of white extending from the pedicle (where the fruit hangs on the tree) to the navel.

The white strands are analogous to the central part of the 4-day old embryo. This embryonic part will develop into the digestive tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small and large intestines, anus, liver and pancreas) along with the respiratory system (larynx, trachea, bronchi and lungs). This part of the embryo is called endoderm (endo = inside).
The flesh of the orange-- comparing it to the middle portion of the human embryo -- will develop into muscles, the skeleton, the circulatory system (heart, arteries, veins and capillaries), urinary system (kidneys, ureter, bladder and urethra) and the genital system. This portion of the embryo is called mesoderm (meso middle).
The skin of the orange has two layers: the outer layer with the characteristic color of the orange and inner layer characterized by the white portion of the orange skin. By analogy, the outer layer will develop into human skin, while the inner layer will develop into the central nervous system (brain and cerebellum) and also into the peripheral nervous system (spinal cord and all other nerves). This portion is called ectoderm. ectos (outer).
One Hundred Trillion
We should not forget that the human embryo begins with one cell and on the fourth day contains the blueprint from which a person grows into an adult. How many cells does the human body have when it is fully developed? It has one hundred trillion cells!!!
How big is one trillion? For us to better understand the staggering number of one trillion, it is sufficient for us to note that the gross debt of the United States of America reached, in 1982, one trillion dollars! This means, in absolute numbers,-- dollars equal to cells -- that our human body is one hundred times larger than the gross debt of the United States! If we could exchange dollars for all the gold in the world, we would still not reach one hundred trillion!
One is overwhelmed to think that from one single cell, the human fertilized egg multiplies itself and will reach one hundred trillion cells!!! And, as we will see later, all these cells are active in the electricity of love! Our body cells are divided into 204 different types, according to function. Some are round, others elliptical, cubic, long, short, with branches, etc. Unfortunately, because of this variety, we can develop 204 different types of cancer!
Nowadays we hear a lot about cloning and stem cells. It is from the stem cells that all different cells of our body derive. But in the process of cloning the stem cells can be used ONLY when they are 14 to 21 days old, there is, when the cells are yet on the very beginning of the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm stages.
In conclusion we note this important truth. Our skin and brain are derived from the same primitive embryonic tissue, ectoderm, from the fourth day of conception. The skin and brain are like twins. So much the better, since our skin is the largest organ of the body and also our largest sexual organ!
