Cells and Yin-Yang polarity- (Towards greater similarity between the animate and the inanimate)

A cell-plant or animal-is proving a bioelectric wonder already boasting of pyro-, piezo-, ferroelectricity, solid state and electretism as eminent exhibits and probable functional mechanisms. A cell, its parts, and its products owe the bioelectric boon to inherent and universal polarity pregnant with dipolar electromagnetic moment.
The cytologic bipolarity prompts a hypothesis that the cell and its world may be no exception to the working of Yin-Yang, the Taoistic concept o f all-pervading reality. Nuclear, cytoplasmic, gametic and zygotic considerations compellingly suggest that YinYang does prevail, making us and' our cells basically field-effects, thus erasing further the distinction between male and female, animate and inanimate, biomass and bioenergy.
