(A revised excerpt from the original work, Real World Views, Book 5 by Professor  Dr. Tan Man-Ho entitled "The Canon Of Discovery, The Search For Spiritual Certainty And A Glimpse Of The Real World Views",  December 1975 ~ April 1976 Discourses, Chapter 3, Section F:  "The Material Beings and the Organic Beings" pp. 113 ~ 127)





1   Beings, material beings are formed through the operation of the two essence laws of the universe, the laws of three and the laws of seven partially or impartially.  All other laws are derived from these two basic laws of ‘psyche-matter-energy’ (psymattergy).  Depending on the continuum of relevant factors, part or whole manifestations of these two fundamental laws are operative.  For a dead material object, only the law of action and reaction, and Newtonian laws of mechanics are operative and applicable.  These laws are part of or the derived laws of three.  The organic beings including the human being are all trioctave compliance!


2   The diversification of essence generates the special essences which on materialization appear as the various physical beings – material or organic.  This is a peculiar idea of G’s, system.

We shall focus on the Organic Being and specifically man as our main concern here.

My impression on the physical body of man as enneagramic organic beings is that it is subjected to the influence of the general laws of triad and sevenfoldness in a manner purportedly listed below:

General Description:


1. The Nervous-Psychomotor System eats impressions and excretes the positive, the negative and the neutral psychic behaviors through the brain organs of Cerebrum, the Cerebellum and the Spinal Cord, and excrete the waste (negative emotions, negative attitudes, certain neutral and positive elements) through the psychomotor systems of physical actions in the form of speech of the mouth, expiration of the chest and the movements of the limbs.  Being-psyche hanbledzoins enter into this system in the eyes (light), in the ear (sound), in the nose (odor), in the skin (touch) and in the tongue (taste) to refine these impressions in the process of sensing, perceiving, conceiving and responding in the nervous-behavioral system.

2. The Respiratory-Expiratory eats air and excretes waste air and water vapor through the organ called the lungs and sweating organs.  Blood iron from the blood circulatory system is needed and enters here to extract the vital oxygen in the air.

3. The Digestive-Excretory System eats physical food and water and excretes excreta through the organs of mouth, stomach, intestines, colon, rectum and anus, and through the blood circulation system together with the excretory organs such as the kidneys, the ureters, bladder and urethra as urine. Digestives enzymes or secretions such as saliva (into the mouth), gastric secretion (into the stomach), pancreatic secretion and bile and Brunner's secretion (into the duodenum), small intestine secretion (into the small intestine) and large intestine secretion (into the large intestine) all enter into this alimentary canal to digest the ordinary foods.

4. The Edocrine-Splanichnic System transports hormones from the endocrine glands (pituitary gland, hypothalamus, thyroid gland, thymus, adrenal gland, pancreas, spleen, ovaries and testis) into all the various targeted splanchnic viscera organs, other organs and systems in the body for specific results.  The hormones enters into the blood circulatory system to refine the oxgenated blood further for a blood with finer being-psyche hydrogens.

5. The Blood Circulatory System transports arterial or oxygenated or venal blood and all fluids including lymph through the organs of the heart, the vessels of cardiovascular system or vascular system and lymphoid system to all the stopinders of the human body.

6. The Muscular System transfers physical mechanical energy to its various subsystems such as the limbs and all the physiological functioning organs and systems to bring about movements of the human body.  This system receives instructions from the nervous system to move or psychomotor or to reflex.

7. The Skeletal System is the structural foundation of solid bones connected by soft tendons and cushioned by soft bones to bear the weight of the whole physical body.  This a passive system moving from the force coming from the muscular system.

8. The Reproductive System creates sperms and ova in the body and enables dialecticalization (union) of the sperm and the ova to produce the newborn through the organs of testis, sperm duct and penis for male and the organs of ovary, fallopian tubes, uterus and vagina.   This system requires an opposite sex from the externals for continuation of the newborn human being.

9. The Psychophysical Human Being itself as a whole which is an octave of cell (do), tissue (re), organs (mi), sub-systems (fa), Physical Body (so), Psychic Body (la) and Psychophysical Body (ti) and the Pyschophysical Human Being.

The instinctive biocosmos of these anatomical-physiological systems can be arranged in an enneagram as follows: 

The 3 Inputs at 0/9, 3 and 6 and the anatomical-physiological systems involved are:

Do (0/9) Impression  – The Nervous System

3 Food                     – The Digestive System

6 Air                        – The Respiratory System


The 6 inner anatomical-physiological systems in the order of 1-4-2-8-5-7 are:

1.    The Endocrine-Splanchnic System

4.    The Muscular System

2.    The Circulatory System

8.   The Reproductive System

5.   The Skeletal System

7.   The Excretory System



The scientific method of the exact science on these observable physical biological systems, as distinct from the noumenal philosophical approach already explained by using the enneagram model and principles, is the phenomenal approach normally through a visual observation from outside presenting it by means of pictures can be depicted as below:


The 3 Inputs and the anatomical-physiological systems involved are:

1.   The Nervous System

2.   The Digestive System

3.   The Respiratory System


The 6 inner anatomical-physiological systems are:

1.  The Endocrine-Splanchnic System

4.   The Muscular System

2.   The Blood Circulatory System

Blood includes lymphatic fluids


8.   The Reproductive System

5.   The Skeletal System

7.   The Excretory System


3   For lower beings other than the human being, they also have most or all these systems except that they have varying degrees of development for each system -  Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La and Ti of the system’s octave.  For example, a worm is an example of a being with a no skeletal system (5 So) although it has only minimal degree of anatomical and physiological development at its nervous system (0/9 Do), endocrine system (1 Re) blood circulatory system (2 Re), digestive system (3), muscular system (4 Fa), respiratory system (6) digestive system, excretory system (7 La) and reproductive system (8 Ti).

All psychic forces are the same as to stopindering in according to the octave law.  They can never fail to create a four bodied material beings at its full development and a maximum of 7 psychic centers for them independent of the cosmic concentration of concern.  First, it must commence with a center-periphery principle based on the triad rule ‑ a nucleus, a plasma and the whole being or cell and then stopindering by sevens through its octave of development.  But what psyche hydrogens it has for its being is based on an Ouspenkian Indexation of the hydrogens in the Ray or Creation.  The psychic stopinders of hydrogens is indexed by Ouspensky and the numbers represent the finess of the psyche hydrogens (H), the smaller the finer.  The numbers also represent the number of ‘laws’ that control and obstruct their degree of freedom to move in space and time and across physical anatomical and physiological obstacles and gravity-centers.  The smaller the number the finer it is and the greater is its freedom of motion and psychic gravitation.  So do not be surprised if the psyche events run about like the disobedient ‘Monkey God’ in the human body as if not in control by the cells, tissues, organs and systems physical gravity-center.  You backache might be treated by massaging the abdomen and your neck ache might feel like head ache!  The hydrogens in the Ouspenskian food octave might be produced not at the exact spots thought to be in the specified physical system.  The 7 psychic centers in the human body are approximated locations in the three-stories of man – head, thorax and abdomen. They are most difficult with the exact locations of the instinctive, moving and sex center.  Psyche hydrogens being wave-particle beings cannot really be imprisoned by the physical system completely.
