The Helical Heart

An Italian physician came up with a brilliant insight into the heart organ. Here is the first part of an awarding winning movie documenting his insight:

I cannot recommend this video highly enough. This is a truly mercurial insight. A scientific insight for the ages.

This video planted a seed in my mind to start thinking about . . . among all things . . . the electron a little differently.  Like the heart, an electron has a double helix or double spiral structure which torques signals up and down.  This structure and motion leads into light phenomenon that is constantly completed in a bidirectional direction along similar rope like entities parallel in relation to the perpendicular electronic motion and structure.      

But anyways, here are some quotes from the video:

Narrator:  The basic understanding of the human heart has changed little in over three hundred years. Now new insights into the structure and function of the heart will change the way we view it forever.

Narrator:  In fact, Harvey’s concept of the heart prevails to this day, that is, a muscle with four chambers that contracts to eject blood and then relaxes to be passively filled by the atria. However not everyone believed this to be true.

Narrator:  Dr. Francisco Torrent Guasp continues the dissection following the cleavage plane separating the two layers. Then by cutting the right trigon he is able to free the right aorta and unravel the myocardial band. The ventricular myocardial band running from the root of the pulmonary artery to the root of the aorta; a singular muscular band that twists and loops like a rope into a helical structure forming the left and the right cavities of the ventricle.

Dr. Gerald Buckberg: . . . I had never heard of Francisco Torrent Guasp, and he and I had met, the first thing he told me that my concept of how the heart was formed was not accurate, and he told me that the heart, the way it has its conduction is probably not accurate, in fact the heart is a rope . . .

Buckberg: When I looked at the heart, I saw the basil loop and then I saw a descending limb and an ascending limb and they curl around each other at a helix and a vortex at the tip of the ventricle. And the angles at which they go is about 60 degrees, and for years people had wondered why that happened at the septum and why the heart had looked that way. And I realized that this was really a spiral. And I began to think about spirals and I began to understand that spirals are almost the master plan of Nature in terms of structure and in terms of rhythm. And if you begin to look at spirals, and you pick the middle of the helix up you begin you’d form a helix. And of course the heart is a helix.       
Narrator:  Using a unique imaging technique to examine the architecture of the heart, a cow heart is first inflated with compressed air.  Then in a series of X-ray images looking down on the heart, the helical structure of the muscular band is clearly revealed as we move down in the apex of the left ventricle.  Once again notice how the loops of the band turn in opposition . . . two reciprocal spirals merging at the apex.
