CANNABINOID SYSTEM – PHYSICS OF LIFE AND ITS SOCIAL IMPACT
This lecture will focus on how the physics, developed by Nobel laureate Ilya Prigogine, provides a basis for understanding the origins of life and evolution. We will see a unique evolutionary occurrence with the development of the vertebrate lineage. All vertebrates contain cannabinoid receptors that uniquely, homeostatically regulate all of their body systems (circulatory, digestive, immune, musculo-skeletal, nervous, reproductive, tequementary). From a holistic point of view, we will see that variations in endocannabinoid activity can have a profound effect on our social systems. In line with evolutionary history, we will see how critical it is for human survival to increase cannabinoids activity at this point in human evolution.
