"As Above So Below; As Within So Without" Taking a cue from our physical body to discover why physical barriers like “a wall” may be, at this point in our history, essential for life

With so much political rhetoric being shouted by the main stream media I have found it helpful observe our current areas of disagreement through lenses of well-established truth. I find the ancient spiritual axiom, “As Above So Below; As Within So Without” to be particularly helpful in discerning the morality/immorality or pros and cons of President Trumps proposed southern border wall or barrier.

This well-known spiritual gem, “As Above So Below; As Within So Without" is one of seven laws set out by Hermes. As both an ordained minister and a skin care specialist who has taught basic anatomy and physiology for years I quickly discerned patterns within our own being that surely hold at every level of life including the life of our nation.

Every human is covered in skin! The body’s largest organ, our skin’s most important role is as the first line of defense between our bodies and the world we live in. This first line of defense (or outside defense system) includes physical and chemical barriers that are always ready and prepared to defend the body from infection. This amazing physical barrier even protects us from too much of a good thing that could also lead to problems - like too much life sustaining water or salts.

When skin is healthy, its many layers work hard to protect us, but when this physical barrier is compromised, its ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired leading to a myriad of diseases and disorders even including death. Life is unsustainable if 10% or more of our epidermis (outer skin layer) is missing. Interestingly, most anatomy text books compare our epidermis to a life sustaining brick and mortar wall.

Our skin even has the ability to create a temporary wall isolating perceived threats like infection in what is called a cyst.

Skin however is only the beginning! Every vital organ of our body has some type of a physical barrier that protects it. For example to protect our brain the body has developed a series of defenses to keep the brain safe from harm—from both internal and external threats. On the outside, the brain is protected by a 6- to 7-millimeter layer of bone commonly known as the skull, while several layers of liquid called meninges cushion the brain from the inside. The brain also is protected by a physical and biochemical wall called the blood-brain barrier that blocks toxins from reaching brain cells.

The blood-brain barrier is made up mostly of endothelial cells, which line glands, organs and blood vessels throughout the body. In most cases, endothelial cells have gaps in their membranes that allow essential substances, like medicines, to flow in and out of the bloodstream. In the brain, however, those gaps are sealed with proteins that limit what can pass through. The barrier also contains astrocytes, star-shaped cells that act as the barrier's gatekeepers, determining what gets in and what's kept out. Allowed: essentials such as oxygen and glucose that allow the brain to function. Barred at the barrier: toxins and bacteria that can harm the brain or cause infection.

Additionally, every single cell in our body, without exception is protected by a physical border in the form of a double layer cell membrane. The cell membrane separates the material outside the cell, extracellular, from the material inside the cell, intracellular. It maintains the integrity of a cell and controls passage of materials into and out of the cell. This cell membrane is a double layer of phospholipid molecules. Proteins in the cell membrane provide structural support, form channels for passage of materials, act as receptor sites, function as carrier molecules, and provide identification markers.

The amazing borders within our own being don’t even stop there! Every single essential organelle within each cell of our body is also protected by a Double Membrane. These organelles include the Mitochondria, Chloroplasts, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi Body, and Nucleus.

Boundaries, borders, walls, fences, whatever you want to call them are essential for all life and they take many forms. Our bodies contain numerous physical borders that both protect and allow for an orderly exchange of life sustaining substances. We can also observe that family units, the most fundamental institution in our nation, also create borders and boundaries both for protection and as a means of maintaining identity and family sovereignty. Recall that recent protesters/illegal aliens who crossed Nancy Pelosi’s home boarder unlawfully where forced to leave by local police.

It doesn’t take too much thought to realize that physical borders that prevent entry of that which could be harmful or has not been invited, while also allowing for orderly entry of that which is invited or helpful at designated locations is a desirable and necessary structure needed at all essential boundaries.

It seems beyond selfish and corrupt to me that in a Nation whose elected leaders regularly pass legislation granting them-selves increased amounts of security and protection would dare deprive our nation of a secure border, which of course is their primary duty! From my perspective, as long as humans are covered in skin we will also probably require other physical barriers at all of the important boundaries within our civilization. Secure borders are a good thing!
