Pneumatic Power Systems

@midjourneybot: /imagine: diagram for a pneumatic system to operate a human

We are air powered. We can live for weeks without food and days without water, but we will die within minutes without air. When our bodies stop breathing, our brains stop computing.

The fancy name for air powered is pneumatic, as in pneumatic tools like these:

Pneumatic comes from the Greek word pneuma, which means breath or air. In English bibles, wherever you see the words Holy Spirit, the original Greek words were Haggia Pneuma—the “Special Air”. We’ll dive deeper into this topic in:

The Latin word from breath is spire. Check out all these English words related to our breath:

  • inspire - to breathe into

  • perspire - to use breath

  • respiration - breathing

  • respiratory - related to breathe

  • respire - to breathe

  • conspire - to share breath with another

  • expire - to lose breath

  • spirit - made of breath

  • aspire - where you want your breath to take you

  • transpired - what happened while breathing

It’s shocking how much air we need every day. When air travels down our Trachea it is divided in half, splitting the volume of air between two Lungs. Once the air is inside each lung, the “air pipe” divides exactly in half again and again, just like other divide and conquer strategies in computer science.

Our lungs continue to divide the air again and again until the air reaches tiny little sacs called Alveoli. Each alveoli only holds 0.2 milliliters of air, but there are so many alveoli in our lungs that they create more than 100 square meters of surface area. That’s roughly 1,100 square feet. The lungs in our chests cover the same surface area as the average home in Germany. Imagine trying to change the air filters at your house, if the intake vent was the size of your house.

We need every bit of that square footage to process the volume of air required to feed the trillions of “mitochondria batteries” embedded in our cells. Check out this quote from Discovery Health,

The average adult, when resting, inhales and exhales about 7 or 8 liters of air per minute. That totals about 11,000 liters of air per day. Inhaled air is about 20-percent oxygen. Exhaled air is about 15-percent oxygen. Therefore, about 5-percent of breathed air is consumed in each breath. That air is converted to carbon dioxide. So, as far as how much air is actually used, human beings take in about 550 liters of pure oxygen per day.

This is 10,000 liters:

Our lungs are directly exposed to the external world, just like our skin cells, so we breathe in a lot more than just oxygen. We inhale pollen, dust, bacteria, and viruses. To protect us from the environment, each human robot comes with its own self-cleaning air filtration system that’s way more technologically advanced than the air filters in a house or a car. The air filtration system in our body is water-based and we can see it in action. When we exhale hot air in the winter, the little cloud that forms is the water that came directly from our lungs. ☁️

Here’s how it works. The alveoli air sacs at the bottom of our lungs have several layers. The outermost cells are called Epithelial Alveoli and they protect us by forming a super thin lipid membrane that acts as a firewall. The only molecules allowed to pass through it are oxygen and carbon dioxide, so really it’s an “airwall”.

This airwall is protected by Type II Epithelial Alveoli that work just like the sebaceous glands on our skin. But instead of secreting an oil-based solution, they secrete a water-based solution called Pulmonary Surfactant. So the bottom of each little air sac is constantly filled with soapy water that is cleaned by our Immune System, which is why we inadvertently add humidity to the air we breathe. Approximately 400ml of the water we drink everyday is lost when exhaling. 😮‍💨

Our pneumatic design is shockingly energy-efficient. The oxygen that makes it across our airwall is directly deposited into our bloodstream because our Cardiovascular System routes itself in and around all 300 million alveoli air sacs.

The way these two systems are woven together means we need very little caloric energy to breathe. When blood is returned to the lungs, it is loaded with carbon dioxide waste from all our mitochondria batteries. Since there’s a higher concentration of carbon dioxide in our blood than in the air outside, some of the carbon dioxide molecules naturally cross the membrane to reach equilibrium. This exchange works the other way too. Since there’s a higher concentration of oxygen in the air outside than the deoxygenated blood coming into the alveoli, some of these oxygen molecules naturally cross the membrane to reach equilibrium.

If you want to learn more about breathing, start with James Nestor’s book, “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art”.

This book will teach you why none of the cavemen in the fossil record needed braces or their wisdom teeth removed.

“Breath” really changed my life. It improved my posture and my patience. It also introduced me to Wim Hof and guided breath work. Here’s an intro video to try it for yourself. Don’t worry if you feel stupid, wait and see how you feel after you do it. Take control of your breathing to take control of your life. (11 mins)


@biblenerds: The New Testament is obsessed with breathing. We already mentioned the Holy Spirit—the Special Air.

Another important word in English bibles is soul. The original Greek word written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul is psyche. Pneuma means “that which is blown”, but psyche means BREATH.

Psychology is Soul-ology.

The Old Testament is obsessed with breathing too. In Genesis 1:2, we see the Spirit of God rippling across the waters of creation. Later, when God formed Adam the Red from the dust of the ground, he BREATHED directly into his nostrils to bring him to life. When you stop breathing, you stop living.

Btw, James Nestor would want me to point out that God didn’t want Adam to be a mouth breather. 😁


@psychologynerds: Breathing coordinates the quantum computation in our brains.


Organization by Design

In this chapter, we have explored our own Biology for signs of Intelligent Design. Did you find any?

In “The BioLogical Robot”, we explored the 1.5 gigabytes of data in our DNA. It is stored on “tape drives” with histone spools that haven’t mutated one single DNA across all life forms. The tape drives have RAID 1+0 redundancy which means the are “mirrored” to maintain integrity and “striped” to increase performance. The software on our tape drives is so modular that scientists can replace the Hox gene that means “head” in a fruit fly with the Hox gene that means “head” in a human, and still get a normal fruit fly.

Hashtag cray-cray.

In “Micro Deaths Create Eternal Life”, we continued exploring our DNA software. Our DNA A/B tests its configurations throughout our lifetimes to better fit us in our environments starting in embryos as young as 5 days old. It comes with its own antivirus software and error correction for replicating its own data. Our software uses programmed cell death to drastically prune the weakest versions of our source code, which enables it to live indefinitely. With continued improvements to our current biotechnology, our children may have to choose to die.

In “Micro Machines and Micro Computers”, we learned how our DNA software makes hardware. We looked at protein micro machines like this:

Yeah, that looks organic. #not

We also learned about the human cell, and how it has all the parts we would expect in a computer, including: a microprocessor, database, system bus, partitions, recycle bin, UEFI, long term data storage, and power supply units.

In “Fiber Optic Carbon Fibers”, we learned about our fascia, which is made from triple-weaved carbon fiber threads that conduct light, heat, and electricity. Fascia is also piezoelectric, which means we are powered by the ground with every step we take. The fiber optic carbon fibers are woven into sheets of varying patterns which give strength to our bones and elasticity to our joints.

If you haven’t found any signs of intelligent design in these five stories, then I don’t know what else to tell you.

When we look for intelligent design within any system, we are looking for the opposite of entropy. Entropy is the law of physics that states a closed system will become more disordered over time. Organization is the opposite of entropy. Organization is exactly what we see when we zoom out and look at our design.

We are actually organized with organs.

Our DNA source code instructs our cells to specialize into dedicated organs that chain together to make complex systems. These complex systems intersect each other all over the body to make a system of systems. Here are the 12 organ systems of the human “machina”:

  1. Integumentary system: Includes the skin, hair, nails, and sweat glands, and helps protect the body from external damage and regulate body temperature.

  2. Skeletal system: Composed of bones, cartilage, and ligaments, and provides support, protection, and movement for the body.

  3. Muscular system: Includes skeletal muscles, smooth muscles, and cardiac muscle, and is responsible for movement, posture, and heat production.

  4. Nervous system: Composed of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, and controls and coordinates the body's responses to internal and external stimuli.

  5. Endocrine system: Includes glands such as the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands, and produces hormones that regulate various bodily functions.

  6. Cardiovascular system: Composed of the heart and blood vessels, and transports oxygen, nutrients, and waste products throughout the body.

  7. Lymphatic system: Includes lymph nodes, lymphatic vessels, and lymphoid organs, and helps defend the body against infections and diseases.

  8. Respiratory system: Composed of the lungs, trachea, and bronchial tubes, and is responsible for the exchange of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) between the body and the environment.

  9. Digestive system: Includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, and pancreas, and is responsible for the breakdown and absorption of nutrients from food.

  10. Urinary system: Composed of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra, and is responsible for the elimination of waste products from the body.

  11. Reproductive system: Includes the gonads (testes in males and ovaries in females), as well as other organs such as the uterus, vagina, and penis, and is responsible for the production of gametes (sperm and eggs) and the perpetuation of the species.

  12. Immune system: A network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against infections and other harmful agents. Some sources include the immune system as a separate system, while others consider it a part of the lymphatic system.

Our body powers 79 organs across 12 systems using only 100 watts of electricity. If that’s not intelligent design, then I literally don’t know what is.
