An unorthodox approach to the nature of immunity is present­ed, differentiating it from reactivity. Immunity is a gestalt force, all to the good of an individual, making the concept of auto-immun­ity ridiculous and rejectable. Reactivity is a vector force that may protect or persecute; it is basically concerned with restoring the integrity of the human body. The concept of cytologue amplifies the idea of integrity, and allows reactivity to fight a microbe, heal a wound, reject a graft, and give rise to «DQ»auto-immune«DQ» disorders, by means of a concerted CelluloHumoroVascular Response.
