For the debate following Huxley’s “On the Physical Basis of Life,” see Gerald L. Geison, “The Protoplasmic Theory of Life and the Vitalist-Mechanist Debate,” in Isis, 60 (), Finally, Aldous Huxley discussed his grandfather’s success as a writer in his Huxley Memorial Lecture, “T. H. Hucley as a Literary Man.   According to his monistic worldview and the assumption of a protoplasmic theory of life—expounded by Thomas H. Huxley (–) among others—the German naturalist called for a material, causal, and historical connection between all living beings and their remote ancestors, from the early and spontaneous transition from inorganic to Cited by: 2.

After death, souls go up for reward and down for punishment. After reward and punishment, the soul can choose a new life. Those who have been rewarded have a tendency to choose a privileged life, and a soul that has been punished is more careful about the life that it chooses. Explanations for protoplasmic streaming began with appeals to contraction in the eighteenth century and ended with appeals to contraction in the .

Thomas Huxley’s “protoplasmic theory of life” reduced the mental attributes of the person to the physical substance within his cells. The rediscovery of Mendel’s laws of heredity in suggested that each of these attributes corresponded to a single “gene” and could thus be controlled by selective breeding.   Biologists call this "protoplasmic irritability.” It is “ the stuff ” of life. In his book Creative Evolution, the French philosopher Henri Bergson () referred to protoplasm.

The Protoplasmic Theory of Life. John. Drysdale. By (Baillière, Tyndall, and Cox, ). During the second part of the nineteenth century, the British biologist, Thomas Huxley (–), claimed that, inside the cell, the protoplasm was essentially composed of albuminoidal bodies and would be the place of the physical basis of life.

This theory led some biologists, as the German Ernst Heackel (–), to assume that. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

In some definitions, it is a general term for the cytoplasm (e.g., Mohl, ), but for others, it also includes the nucleoplasm (e.g., Strasburger, ).

When the protoplasmic bodies return to their point of original departure (situated in the mineral kingdom that is the basic point of the scale) then these bodies are reduced to cosmic dust. The destruction of the protoplasmic bodies is indispensable in order to liberate the lost souls.

The lost souls return into the original, primitive chaos. protoplasmic: protoplasmic (prō'tō-plaz-mat'ik, -plaz'mik), Relating to protoplasm.

Chemical Nature. Meaning of Protoplasm: The “living structure” present inside the cell referred to as protoplasm differentiates the living beings from the non-living beings.

Huxley () defined it as “Physical basis of life”. First of all, Felix [ ]. IN a recent number of NATURE (vol. ) the reviewer of “The Protoplasmic Theory of Life” states broadly that few physiologists will Cited by: 3. The book of Erwin Schrödinger about life evokes a variety of basic questions concerning the understanding of life in terms of modern physics rather than biochemistry.

Problems of organization and regulation of biological systems cannot be understood by revealing only the chemical processes of the living state.

The protoplasmic theory of the cell-the idea that the cell consists of a wall surrounding a nucleus and homogeneous jellylike protoplasm-made the early naturalistic explanations of abiogenesis seem plausible.4/5(8).

It may be claimed for the alveolar theory of Bütschli that it throws light upon many known facts relating to protoplasm. It interprets the reticulum as the optical section of a minute foam-like structure and permits the formation of protoplasmic striations and of apparenf fibrillae as the result of linear or radiating dispositions of the alveolar framework; it reconciles with the.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. God, Faith, Christian. As quoted by William Rees-Mogg in "The Times", April 4, Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.

Garrison Keillor. Funny, Christian, Religious.The “cell theory” was supplanted by what came to be called the “protoplasmic theory of life”, with far-reaching influence. Protoplasm, as a material form and as a philosophical principle, became the symbol of the functionality of life at the most basic by: Paradoxically, protoplasmic theories of anesthetic action may be receiving a new lease on life: structural protoplasmic proteins appear to be affected by some anesthetics.
