Do our cells respond to gravity? If so, how?



  1. 0 Votes

    Gravity is a function of mass, so the fact that cells have mass indicates that they are affected by gravity.  Of course, since their mass is very small, the influence of gravity is incredibly subtle.  One way that cells respond to gravity that we can observe is gravitropism.  Gravitropism is the hormonal response of the cells in a plant’s roots to gravity, which compells them to grow downward.  Other studies have shown that cells are in some sense “aware” of gravity because their structure changes in accordance with gravitational pull (for example if a cell is flipped upside-down).

    Certain cells’ response to gravity and movement help us keep our balance. In the ear, there are several small parts that make of the vestibular apparatus, which tells our brain how we are moving. An important factor of determining balance is knowing which way is down, which is communicated to the vestibular apparatus by the movement of hair cells as they detect gravity. In this way, gravity acts as a sort of reference point for balance. Without gravity, as astronauts in space experience, we could still detect our linear position, but not our vertical position.

    Uniontera number 2, hope it helps. This is an origin of life.

    Existence is the time expressed by light itself.

    1. When same times met … Arrow A (Cause of Laser / Origin of Death / Reason of Chemical reaction)
    2. When different times met … Arrow B (This is your so-called “Gravity” / Cause of Higgs boson / Origin of Life / Reason of Biological reaction)
    3. The rose line is the beginning light. (result from Genesis 1:3)
    4. The existence of different time. (result from relativity of light)
    5. 2 dimension is not a space. (result from 2-axis, math)
    6. Universe came from nothing. (result from No.5 / cf. Playing with bubbles)
    6-1. A barrier[posititon] exist between the inner and outer bubbles. But universe do not have that barrier. (Cause of Inertia / Reason of Sun / Position of Antimatter / Origin of Fire / cf. Expansion, Conservation of parity, Time-reversal invariance)
    6-2. Nothing is not a no existence. No existence is a zero dimension. There is two zero dimension. One has a position. The other doesn’t have a position. These different positions were connected by something. That “something” is not a what but a way. (Cause of Light / cf. Ether)
    7. Progress / Event / Probability is a time. (This is my trinity.)
    8. Wave-particle duality of light, creation & evolution, uncertainty principle, etc. (result from No.7)
    9. Coalescing of different times. (Cause of Rotation & Spin / Equator has plenty of time. / Origin of Colour / Reason of Reflection / cf. Strong interaction)
    10. Your so-called “Black hole” is a wholly condensed time. (cf. Kerr spacetime)
    11. The reason of your so-called “Magnetic field”. (result from step3 and 4)
    11-1. The reason of your so-called “Dark matter”. (result from step3 to 4 / Energy-Mass duality / cf. Dark energy “step4 to 3”)
    12. The reason of your so-called “Electric field”. (result from the crack of time / Same time’s crack is a different time’s connection. / Cause of Static electricity)
    13. Your so-called “Space” is a crack of time. (result from No.12 / Cause of Lightning / Reason of Refraction / cf. Weak interaction)
    13-1. The reason of your so-called “Capture & Decay”. (result from No.13’s crack of time / cf. Violation of time-reversal invariance)
    13-2. The reason of No.6-2’s “position & none position”. (result from No13-1’s “capture & decay”)
    13-3. The reason of No.13’s space. (result from No.13-2’s “position & none position” / cf. Noneconservation of parity)
    14. Boundary is a crack of space. (result from No.13 / Same space’s crack is a different time’s contact. / Cause of Superfluid / cf. Fractal)
    15. Boundary is nothing. Your so-called “Hole” is a boundary itself. Also, nothing is K=0 temperature. (result from No.14 / cf. Calabi-Yau, Hilbert space)
    16. This is a wall of your so-called “Fire”. (result from No.15) – copyright ⓒ uniontera

    Our nonsense has come from one time. Uniontera is a key.

    English is not my first language, sorry!

    If it is difficult to understand, just remember & enjoy “Hand touching everything is a time”. This is the only one result of uniontera.
