Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life

In this book, you'll discover a revolutionary interpretation of how cells work that challenges established wisdom.

It brings you an intuitive yet scientifically sound perspective on the key processes like motion, transportation, division, and interaction at the cellular level – all based on physical principles. It explains the remarkable capabilities of cells that have mystified scientists for centuries.

At the heart of this book lies a powerful concept: water is not just an inert medium, but an active agent with extraordinary properties – self-assembly, motion, and energy transfer capability – that provide the basic engine to drive cellular activity.

With a deeper understanding of water, we can then explain the motion of cells and how they interact with their environment.

You'll learn how cells build structures like gels, which are essential for energy storage and transport. You'll understand how these gels actually form a mechanical linkage between cellular components, allowing them to communicate in complex ways. And you'll explore new theories about cell division, growth, and migration.

This book will open a new window into the inner workings of cells and their environment. With its accessible explanations and real-world examples, it's an essential resource for anyone interested in cellular biology or biophysics.

By delving into the core principles that govern life at the most fundamental level, it provides a unifying view of biology unlike any other.

At the same time, it will spark new insights and open up exciting possibilities for applications in medicine and biotechnology.
