If we think of the diversity of the organs of which the human body is made, the diversity of the tissues used to build the organs, the prodigious number of aggregated cells (several trillion) that form all the tissues, the colossal number of protoplasma molecules, and finally the almost infinite number of atoms that constitute each organic molecule, then we are in the presence of a true universe and so diversified that it exceeds in complexity everything that imagination can conceive. The marvel is the order that governs these billions of tangled actions.
The successive groupings of phenomena are harmonized in series that result in total unity.
Each of the cells works on its own, blindly; the forces of the outside world are themselves unconscious; who then disciplines all these elements to lead them to the final goal, which is the maintenance of life? There is clearly a plan that is being maintained and it requires a guiding plastic force that cannot be caused by a series of random accidents. How can we imagine a continuity of efforts always following the same direction, in a whole whose parts are constantly changing?
If, in the midst of this whirlwind, something remains stable, it is logical to see in it the organiser to whom the matter obeys; ……, since one objectively sees its existence during life and that it resists death; when one learns it better, new, very precious knowledge will result from it for physiology and medicine.........
........................ What the ancients called the natural medicatrix screw is the stable, incorruptible, ever-aware mechanism that defends the body against the mechanical, physical, chemical and microbial actions that attack it relentlessly, and that constantly restores the integrity of the living being when it is destroyed.
In a word, the body is not only a cluster of cells simply juxtaposed or joined, it is a whole in which each part has a well-defined role, but subordinated to its place in the general plane. The 'perispirit' is the physical realization of this "guiding idea" that Claude Bernard points out as the true characteristic of life; it is also the "vital drawing" that each of us realizes and preserves throughout our existence.
