Shown here is the precise one-to-one relationship between the fundamental structures and functions of human physiology (Individual life) and the fundamental structures of Natural Law (Cosmic life). These fundamental structures of Natural Law connect individual intelligence with cosmic intelligence - the basic structures of the human nervous system with their 'cosmic counterparts'.
This illustration from Dr. Tony Naders's book, "Human Physiology, Expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature", presents a coronal section of the brain with its internal structures, and their one-to-one relationship with the nine 'cosmic counterparts'... the nine Grahas (planets).
Sun acts like the thalamus in the human physiology. Sun is the central focal point in the solar system as is the thalamus in our body. All activity in the solar system revolves around the sun. In our physiology, all activity is controlled and ordered by the thalamus. Enlivening the positive influences of Sun strengthens the physiology and strengthens the qualities of Sun in our daily life.
Moon occupies a central role in the solar system and in our physiology. This influence is represented by the hypothalamus in our physiology which controls our behavior, our emotions, our hormonal and reproductive cycles and our body temperature. It nourishes the physiology like a mother or queen and occupies a central place in the center of the brain with the thalamus.
Mars in our physiology is associated with the Red Nucleus, Pars Compacta, and Amygdala. These structures in the brain control activity by providing checks and balances, activating and inhibiting impulses in the brain, and maintaining steadiness and precision of movement. These influences can be strengthened with the wearing of Coral when recommended.
Mercury in the human physiology is associated with the sub-thalamic nucleus which resides in the brain and receives input from various parts of the brain which directly influences its activity. Similar to the placement of Mercury which revolves around Sun and is directly influenced by that relationship, the sub-thalamic nucleus’ activity is influenced by the input it receives and modulates its output accordingly.
Jupiter's influence in the human physiology is through the globus pallidus. This globular structure is like a teacher in the physiology. It gives balanced and higher-order instructions, balances and maintains harmony between inner and outer input, manages and executes complex systems and enlivens activity in the brain while guiding action. It signifies highest-order thinking -- Knowledge has organizing power.
Venus in the human physiology corresponds to the activity of the pars reticulata. This structure in the physiology refines and controls action in the limbic system related to instincts, feelings and emotions etc. This action is associated with those impulses in the physiology that correspond to the qualities of life influenced most strongly by Venus.
Saturn in the human physiology is expressed through the activities of the putamen. The putamen, like Saturn in the solar system, is placed at the outer edge of the basal ganglia. It’s influence, like Saturn, is that of a servant. It receives major input and instructions that it transmits to the basal ganglia.
Rahu Traditionally, Rahu is known as the “head of the dragon”. In the human physiology, Rahu corresponds to the head of the caudate. The caudate is involved in the control of the saccadic eye movements (the abrupt short shifts of focus in the eyes). The caudate influences memory in relation to orientation in space. The caudate is responsible for our ability to change behavior patterns.
Ketu's influence in the physiology is represented by the tail of the caudate. It’s influence is over learning and emotions.
We see here the same one-to-one relationship with the twelve constellations
(signs of the zodiac).
The structuring dynamics of the ancient Veda and the Vedic Literature are fully expressed in the human physiology. The 40 branches of Veda and Vedic Literature, which are the impulses of intelligence composing the structuring dynamics of Vedic knowledge, have been correlated with 40 areas of human physiology.
