Basic Components, Functions, & Operation Of An Electronic Computer
1. Computer Chips and The Binary System
An electronic computer primarily consists of electrical components called chips that operate according to the mathematical system of logic.
Chips have only two states, either on or off, and therefore only deal with pure information, mathematical calculations, and questions that can be answered by a yes or no. This is called a binary system – two states, either on or off. All operations within a chip are done in terms of “bits” of information.
A bit is like a light switch — it can be on in which case there are five volts present — or it can be off in which case there are zero volts present.
In common terminology, a bit represents one letter or a number that is one integer long. Any given chip may have thousands of these bits and there are many chips in a computer.
1.1. Central Processing Unit (CPU) – The Control Unit
The heart of the electronic computer is the Central Processing Unit, more commonly known as the CPU. It controls every operation of the computer from the gathering of information from outside sources to reading or writing its information to memory, to having the logic unit perform calculations on the information, to storing the results in memory, or sending it out to be used by humans. However, the CPU only knows what to do per the instructions given to it by a person through a program written and loaded into the computer. The program is a step-by-step list of instructions for the CPU to execute.
This is very fine indeed, as long as everything functions properly. The CPU performs millions of calculations and functions per second. To keep things in proper order and avoid chaos, every component must operate at a compatible speed and also at the correct time. Therefore, there is a timing chip that sends out timing pulses that control each component’s function. If the timing chip, the CPU, or any of the other chips malfunction, then everything goes haywire: either the computer “crashes” and functions inappropriately giving incorrect answers, or it freezes up and stops functioning entirely.
1.2. Memory & Storage Devices
In order for a computer to operate properly, it must have some place to put all the information it needs to tell it what to do (the program), as well as all the data it is doing it to, and the results of the doing. This place consists of the memory chips, which correspond to your desktop in your office. During the day, the work you are doing is hopefully placed in an orderly fashion on your desk. When you are done it is placed in its folder and stored in your desk drawer or file cabinet.
A computer loads programs and the data it needs into memory chips (RAM or Random Access Memory chips) for temporary storage while it works. It is temporary because when the computer is turned off everything in these chips is erased. Therefore, once your work is done, the results must be stored onto permanent memory media like floppy disks, hard disks, CD-R, or other data storage devices.
There is also a type of memory called ROM or Read Only Memory. This memory is not erased when power is turned off. It also cannot be changed. Therefore, ROM holds the system software that runs every time the computer is turned on, verifying all aspects of the computer are functional and can communicate with input and output units.
1.3. Input Units
Many times the computer needs information from the person operating it. This is accomplished by several different mechanisms.
The most common is the keyboard, which allows the operator to type in words or numbers as required. In addition, there are mice, joysticks, digitizing tablets, scanners, faxes, modems for transferring data via telephone lines and even voice input devices.
1.4. Output Units
In order for the work the computer performs to be useful, it must be able to present the results to the operator in some fashion. This is most commonly done by way of a TV-like piece of equipment called a monitor or screen. Printers offer a more permanent “hard copy” output or printout. There are also plotters, modems, faxes, slides, etc.
Output units also display error messages when something goes wrong and the computer cannot function properly.
1.5. Software Programs
In order for the computer to do anything useful, it must be told exactly what to do, what to do to it, and what to do with the results. This is accomplished by step-by-step instructions called a program. The computer always does exactly what it is told to do unless something malfunctions.
1.6. Basic Operation
So, how does a computer work? First, when the power is first turned on, a “built-in test” (or “BIT” test) is automatically executed. The BIT test checks the basic operation of the computer, including its interfaces and its memory. This BIT test is a permanent program that is kept in the Read Only Memory chips. These chips do not lose their memory when power is turned off and cannot be changed.
Next, the system software (or operating system) is loaded. This program is the interface between the CPU and the input and output devices as well as the application programs that are being run. The system software basically translates all inputs and commands into the language that the computer understands and can execute.
Finally, the application program that the operator wants to run is loaded and the CPU executes each step in sequence and outputs the results as directed by the program.
When many computers need to work together, they do so by networking. This requires special networking software and hardware and one of the computers must function as a file server, which means that it stores all the data and programs that are to be used in common among all the connected computers. The file server controls which computers have access to what programs and when each one can access the files so that one computer cannot interfere with another one if they are both working on the same problem.
Networking is obviously required in the Biocomputer. There are five major minicomputers in the body: the Primary Computer, the Endocrine Computer, the Spinal Computer and the Local Computer.
- The Primary Computer is the cerebrum. The skin is the output unit of the Primary Computer.
- The Endocrine Computer is the Autonomic Nervous System and its output unit is arm length.
- The Spinal Computer is the Spinal Cord and its output unit is leg length.
- The Local Computer is the kinetic system and reflex arc. Its output unit is muscle tone.
In reality, every cell is a minicomputer with a program in memory, the DNA; with input units, nutrients, nerves, chi etc.; with output units, lymphatic system, circulation system, and nervous system.
Each cell computer is networked into the computer that it functions with. Each computer up the line in complexity has more and more capability to make decisions and plan strategies for survival. 
2. The Biocomputer: Basic Components, Functions, & Operation
2.1. The Biocomputer
The biological computer, commonly known as the Biocomputer, functions as a binary computer, either on or off, either positive or negative polarity, either strong or weak, etc.
The Biocomputer consists of an integrated network of seven mini computers, which are organized on a hierarchical basis depending on the computer’s functions. These mini computers are respectively known as 1) the Subtle Computer, 2) Etheric Computer, 3) Master Computer, 4) Primary Computer, 5) Endocrine Computer, 6) Spinal Computer, and 7) Local Computer.
Each computer has a control unit or CPU, memory/storage units, input units, output units, software programs, display terminals, processing points, and access points.
2.2. Central Processing Unit (CPU) Control Unit
Each minicomputer has its own control unit. For example, the cerebrum is the CPU of the Master Computer or brain. The cerebellum and midbrain form the Primairy Computer. The limbic brain is the CPU of the Endocrine Computer. The spine is the CPU of the Spinal Computer, and the nerve synapse is the CPU of the Local Computer.
The control unit [thalamus] regulates the flow of data between the logic unit, storage units, the input units, the output units, and between the minicomputers themselves. It contains the program that continually operates for the survival of the body.
2.3. When the Biocomputer fails
Just as with the electronic computer, timing is of the utmost importance. When the timing is off (i.e., the nerve synapse is too slow or fast, or a nerve is pinched and does not respond properly) then the CPU gets incorrect information and that part of the body gets out of sync with everyone else and does not function properly. If this continues long enough, breakdown or disease occurs.
Similarly, just as the electronic computer can fail so too can the Biological Computer. Biocomputer failure, resulting in erratic function or no function, can result from a myriad of possibilities. Most commonly, this occurs when:
- Appropriate nutrients are not present.
- Acupuncture meridian energies are out of balance.
- Nerve transmission is reduced or impeded.
- Vertebrae or other structures are out of place.
- Emotional blockages exist ….
[Etcetra, the list is endless.]
2.4. Memory & Storage Devices
Storage devices in the primary computer consist of short-term memory for the ongoing data processing and long-term memory for more permanent storage requirements. Long-term memory is physically contained in the genetic code. In the other physical minicomputers memory is primarily held in the tissues and cells. Holographic energy patterns hold the memory for the Subtle and Etheric Computers.
2.5. Input Units
The input units for the Biocomputer consist of all sensory receptors for data coming from the environment, including the chakras and psychic receptors. Internally, input comes from sensory receptors as well as the nervous system, circulation system, etc.. In the form of electrical as well as chemical data. The various sensory receptors include eyes, ears, nose, taste sensors on the tongue, feeling sensors in the skin, pain sensors, etc.
The input units are very widespread, acting both as homeostatic loops for the Biocomputer’s operation, as well as detecting operator error (i.e., lifestyle problems). This input data (or sensory data) is translated into binary nerve impulses, which are relayed to synapses in the spinal cord — the Spinal Minicomputer. These impulses can then be ignored, can initiate a correction strategy at this level only, or can be sent to another minicomputer level for processing. This sensory data can be placed in storage or memory along with the reactive strategy taken so it is more easily available in the future.
2.6. Output Units
The output units of the Biocomputer consist of muscles and the skin by way of the peripheral nervous system. These output units are basically binary in nature: the muscles are either strong or weak and the skin either displays positive therapy/stress localization or it does not. Like the electronic counterpart, when there are problems in the Biocomputer, the output units display error messages — pain, hot or cold areas on the skin, or aberrant functions, such as weak muscles or switching phenomenon.
2.7. Software Programs
Like the electronic computer, the Biocomputer has a master program that it is continually executing – the program to survive. This program consists of all the subprograms that tell each cell of the body what its function is. This program is written into the genetic code. It represents the overall controlling software, or operating system, of the Biocomputer.
Sub-modules of this master program are the controlling programs for the various systems of the body:
- Gastrointestinal (GI),
- Excretory and
The application programs are learned behavior programs that are continuously developing throughout life and manifesting in psychology, philosophy, and behavior of the person.
3. Basic Operation of the Human Body (Biocomputer)
The biocomputer is infinitely more complex than an electronic computer. However, the essential principles of operation are similar. Unlike the electronic computer, the Biocomputer is always working, always monitoring body status and making decisions on strategies for dealing with the day-to-day stresses to which the body is exposed.
3.1. The prime directive of the biocomputer is to survive
The biocomputer will do whatever is necessary to keep the body alive: from using nutrients that are available to creating alternative metabolic strategies, to changing polarities, muscle tone, shifting bones, even sacrificing lower priority organs or functions in order to keep more important systems functioning. It has the unique capability to learn from its experience and change its programming to better enable it to accomplish its fundamental goal: survival.
The minicomputers work together in a hierarchical network system with the Master Computer [cerebrum] regulating each minicomputer’s access to programs and data thus optimizing the whole body’s efficiency.
Sensory data entering the Master Computer is compared with previous data, evaluated and then acted upon. This information is sent to the appropriate minicomputers and the display units.
Networking is obviously required in the Biocomputer. There are seven major minicomputers in the body:
|Subtle Computer||the subtle energetic bodies surrounding the physical body, including the Astral and the Mental Bodies.|
|Etheric Computer||closest of the subtle energy bodies to the physical body and energizes the meridian system and the chakras.|
|Master Computer||the brain, the file server for the other six computers.|
|Primary Computer||the midbrain and cerebellum.|
|Endocrine Computer||the limbic brain.|
|Spinal Computer||the Spinal Cord.|
|Local Computer||the kinetic system and reflex arc.|
3.3. Every cell is a minicomputer
In reality, every cell is a minicomputer
- with a program in memory, the DNA;
- with input units, nutrients, nerves, chi, etc.;
- with output units, lymphatic system, circulation system, and nervous system.
Each cell computer is networked into the computer that it functions with. Each computer up the line in complexity has more and more capability to make decisions and plan strategies for survival.
4. Monitoring Status of the Minicomputers
4.1. General Principles
The hierarchical arrangement of the minicomputers from the least to the most complex is from Local to Spinal to Endocrine to Primary to Master to Etheric to Subtle. Each computer has a terminal, or area of display, where its function can be monitored. It also has a processing point which, when tapped, commands the computer to reexamine its available data and access points where diagnostic information can be obtained.
- Master Computer – The Master Computer is [the cerebrum]. It networks and controls the other six computers.
- Subtle Computer – The Subtle Computer consists of the subtle bodies:
1. The Astral Body, which contains all the emotional energetic patterns brought into this life aswell as those accumulated during this life. It is involved in the experience, expression and repression of emotions.
2. The Mental Body, which contains all past experiences brought into this life as well as those accumulated during this life. It is involved inconcrete concepts and ideas and their transmission to the brain.
- Etheric Computer – The Etheric Computer is the Vital Body, which extends beyond the physical body about two to three inches. This body energizes the meridian system and the associated chakras. It is the holographic energy field or template carrying information for the growth, development and repair of the physical body.
- The Primary Computer – The Primary Computer (Cerebellum/Midbrain) receives, compares, evaluates, integrates and stores data. It performs higher functions of the brain. Its terminal for displaying the proper function of the computer is the eye and the eye muscles. Integrity of the Primary Computer can be challenged via eye positions as well as the skin approximation test, better known as the “pinch test.”. 
- The Endocrine Computer – The Endocrine Computer (autonomic nervous system/Limbic system) monitors the endocrine system and integrates most automatic functions. Its terminal is the TMJ and the TMJ muscles are the display. Integrity of the Endocrine computer can be challenged via TMJ position as well as arm length evaluation. 
- The Spinal Computer – The Spinal Computer (spinal cord) controls communication and integration of information as well as the digestive tract. Its terminal is the hyoid bone, the body’s gyroscope. Integrity of the Spinal Computer can be challenged via hyoid position as well as leg length evaluation. 
- The Local Computer – The Local Computer (kinetic system, nerve synapses, and reflex arc) has its terminal is KI-27 at the junction of the first rib, clavicle and the sternum. Integrity of the Local Computer can be challenged via head position and the sternocleidomastoid muscles. 
4.2. Minicomputer Malfunction
Any of these minicomputers can have an “overload” situation which “blows a fuse” at its terminal. This causes their particular muscles to store information about the adaptation that the biocomputer makes to the stress at that particular time. This can eventually cause inhibition of information in a more complex module of the Biocomputer. Alternately, the information is put on hold at that computer level until the over-stressing information can be processed properly.
One of the most efficient therapy for correcting minicomputer malfunction is that which opens up the channels between the minicomputers and restores communication, thus removing the adaptation information from their terminals and unblocking the system. This allows information to be processed in structure, chemistry or electromagnetic therapeutic files so the body can treat its causal imbalances rather than the effects of disease or injury.
The integrity of all the body’s computers is evaluated by looking for Phase I clarity – five sector group muscle test for Local Computer, leg length for Spinal Computer, arm length for Endocrine Computer, pinch test for Primary Computer (see CK Examination Phase I).
When the body is clear in Phase I, the minicomputers are communicating properly. If this clarity is challenged relative to a displaying therapy localization (TL), or a primary point of reference (PPOR), by percussion of the PPOR, eyes open/closed, inspiration, expiration, tongue to roof of mouth, body positions etc., then the biocomputer will either display which minicomputer is malfunctioning in relation to that TL, or it will display which specific energy circuit is blocked in relation to the TL. (Phase II Evaluation Procedures).
Loading specific and general eye modem leg locks should display a Phase I clarity. If the specific energy does not clearly display due to one of the minicomputers not responding, this indicates which minicomputer is unable to process the information and is in need of stabilization.
When the minicomputers are all processing information properly and have no blocks inhibiting the processing of the TL, then there is no adaptation stored in the minicomputer terminals that interferes with the efficient clearing of the TL. For example, if there is a problem with a specific organ, the muscles (Local Computers) associated with that organ should display weakness. If the strategy of the biocomputer to handle this problem is not successful because all the necessary elements for healing are not available, it is forced to adapt and to spread the load to other organs (and their muscles) and eventually to other computers and their terminals. If the adaptation is successful, the muscles for the original problem organ will no longer display, but the newly involved organ muscle will. If the adaptation is not successful then the display of muscle/organ malfunction spreads. 
5. Biocomputer Communication
5.1. Muscle Testing – Specific Muscles
Muscle weakness is not just an indication of a problem with the strength of a specific muscle, but in general indicates possible imbalances in a whole system of organs and tissues that are associated with the specific muscle by the meridian that energizes all of them. Therefore, just balancing the muscle itself to strength may not affect the causal level if that cause is located in an organ or other tissue. If the problem is a local injury to the muscle, then specific muscle testing and balancing of the associated components for stress reduction is appropriate: neurolymphatic reflexes, neurovascular reflexes, vertebral level, muscle acupuncture point, visceral organ reflex, myomere spinal level, nutrition, cranial bones, and foot bones.
5.2. Muscle Testing – Group Muscles
If the imbalance is not in a specific muscle, then group muscle testing is more informative since it gives a broader view of the body’s stresses and can more easily be used to evaluate all the different minicomputers rather than just the local minicomputer. It is like taking a poll of a large number of related databases instead of just one small database.
5.3. Stress/Therapy Localization
Areas of stress emit a frequency of 69.5 gigahertz that creates a shift in polarity of the skin over associated reflex areas from yang to yin. The surface of the body is mostly yang relative to the interior of the body, which is yin. The yang polarities and energies on the outside of the body help to protect the body from external, pernicious influences.
When there is stress inside the body, the associated skin reflexes switch polarity to yin. This can be detected by placing the palmar surface of the fingers (yang) on the stressed area (yin). The two opposite polarities energize a circuit, which produces a kinetic change in an indicator muscle. This is called “Stress”- or “Therapy”- Localization, and it indicates the presence of acute stress, attempted adaptation, or in-process adaptation.
5.4. Hand Modes
Hand modes originated as mudras in the Orient and were expanded into the health field by Dr. Alan G. Beardall. The modes are finger positions that create a three-dimensional symbol, or shape, that generates a frequency. This frequency interacts with the body’s energy field producing a kinetic change in muscle tone if it resonates or has a relationship with anything going on in the body.
Modes can be used to ask questions of the body about energetic imbalances that may be present. A mode producing a kinetic change in an indicator muscle when placed in the hands would be positive and indicate an involvement of that represented frequency with the body’s situation at that time.
If a therapy/stress localization point being touched by a person’s hand produces a kinetic change (1-point), and a mode placed simultaneously in the other hand produces another kinetic change (2-point), then the mode is positive and is involved with that particular stress. Modes can also be used to format the Biocomputer to display a specific type of information.
5.5. Pause lock / retaining mode / surrogate testing
Surrogate testing is the possiblilty to muscle test the communication of the human body. Testing the various types of recognized computer systems (above). In general surrogate testing boils down to put the method called: pause lock. Which is synonime “to hold the energy” for further research.Extract from:
