A description of the experience

No space is so small that it is out of connection with the lymphatics, with their nerves, secretory and excretory ducts. The system of lymphatics is complete and universal in the whole body.
—Philosophy and Mechanical Principles of Osteopathy

Another period of observation appears to the philosopher. We find partial or universal discord from the lowest to the highest in action and death . . . We continue our investigation, but the results obtained are not satisfactory, and another leaf is opened and the question appears, why and where is the mystery, what quality and element of force and vitality has been withheld? A thought strikes him that the cerebro-spinal fluid is one of the highest known elements that are contained in the body, and unless the brain furnishes this fluid in abundance, a disabled condition of the body will remain. He who is able to reason will see that this great river of life must be tapped and the withering field irrigated at once, or the harvest of health be forever lost.
