Symbol 45
The Human Body as a Stellar System

A summary explanation of symbol no. 45 – The Human Body as a Stellar System

If we imagine a human being enlarged so as to fill the whole sky, the whole of outer space, we will see it as a stellar system of luminous particles in a great void. The luminous particles correspond to the particles of which our organism consists. Filling the empty space between the particles is our world of thoughts.

The world of thoughts is a combination of electrical, magnetic forces. We experience this combination of thoughts as our consciousness.

It is the consciousness that maintains the life of the organism and affects the position of the particles. Our wishes, our desires and our will thus contribute to determining the degree of health or ill-health in the organism. 

Martinus' own explanation of the symbol can be found in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 5, which is not yet available in English.
