Inner Space, an Information Repository

Throughout evolution, by amalgamating matter to create life, and increasing its complexity as an organism, single-pointed consciousness became volume. Consciousness equipped itself with material boundaries, the first of which was the cell membrane. Thus, all individuated systems within the body possess an inside and an outside, separated by a membrane. The body also has an inside and an outside, separated by the skin.

The tissular model postulates that all the information concerning a living system exists in its inner space or world. In order to help this system of consciousnesses, we must access this body of information, find the specific information that holds the key to the system’s distress, and then work with this information in order to liberate what must and can be liberated.

Types of Information Retained

When in response to a perceived threat to its survival, a living system resists or refuses to communicate, the situation it finds itself in contains information. And, this information may be more or less complex, more or less fecund, depending upon the exact situation. When it resists or refuses to communicate, a living system withholds energy, and therefore information, which is related to the event that triggered the refusal. Therefore, an area of retention may contain a number of different types of information, determined by the energy flows implicated in its creation. Types of information include:

Decision, deliberation, refusal. The prerequisite to any living entity’s existence is the decision to exist (an I am, as it were). We attribute to tissues the same concept of consciousness as we attribute to ourselves. It is therefore difficult for us to imagine what decision or deliberation might look like at the tissular level. It is actually much simpler than that. Tissular consciousness is elementary, almost exclusively based upon I/not-I, in other words, upon quasi-binary thought. At this level of consciousness, the nature of the response to quasi-binary thought is just as elementary and boils down to yes or no. When tissues refuse to communicate, the decision is therefore no. Perhaps doesn’t really come into play…

Non-communication is a direct result of refusal. Non-communication reduces the refusing area’s consciousness of its own existence, as this area differentiates itself from the organism to which it belongs. As a result, the organism loses consciousness of the area’s existence. The area in retention more or less disappears from the organism’s pattern of consciousness, and proportionally from its control. Which is why patients do not know where their areas of retention are, and are only aware of the resulting discomfort.

Movement may be another aspect of the information retained in an area of retention, especially if the incident which generated the refusal contained significant kinetic energy. In such cases, liberation will occur mainly in and through movement. This type of liberation is quite characteristic of whiplash.

Pain is often an aspect of the information retained in tissue. Indeed, it is pain that most probably generated the resistance and refusal in the first place. Patients often verbalize a form of pain when retention is liberated. This pain is other than the inflammatory pain which immediately manifests when a body area is contacted or mobilized. It appears progressively during this process, and though it may sometimes be intense, it is almost never intolerable. Patients often speak of a soothing pain, because this pain accompanies a process of liberation.
