rawn to the
centre from the cubes lying in the middle of the sides of the large cube.
If we suppose that the inter-molecular space is doubled by expansion,
then all the lines connecting the 26 points with the centre are at the
same time doubled in length. The lines are not equal; therefore
molecules move with unequal speed, some of them faster and some
slower; those further removed from the centre move faster, those lying
nearer the centre move slower. From this we may deduce a second rule:
The speed of the motion of molecules in the expansion and
contraction of a body is proportional to the length of
the lines which connect these molecules with the centre.

26 points
with the centre, and by the letter b lines connecting the 26 points
with each other, then, having constructed several triangles inside the
expanding and contracting cube, we shall see that the lines b are
lengthened proportionally to the lengthening of lines a.
From this we deduce a third rule: In the process of expansion the
distance between molecules increases proportionally to the
increase of their distance from the centre.
This means therefore that the points that were at an equal distance
from the centre will remain at an equal distance from the centre, and
two points that were at an equal distance from a third point will remain
at an equal distance from it. Moreover, if we look upon this motion not
from the centre, but from any one of the points, it will appear to us that
this point is the centre from which the expansion proceeds, that is to
say, it will appear that all the other points retreat from or approach this
point, preserving their former relation to it and to each other, while this
point itself remains stationary. "The centre is everywhere!"The laws of symmetry in the structure of living organisms are based on this last rule. But living organisms are not built by expansion alone. The element of movement in time enters into it. In the course of growth, each molecule traces a curve resulting from the combination of two movements, movement in space and movement in time. Growth proceeds in the same direction, along the same lines, as expansion. The conditions of expansion, that is, the third rule, ensure the most rigorous symmetry in freely expanding bodies, because if points which were originally at an equal distance from the centre continue always to remain at an equal distance from it, the body will grow symmetrically.

rical motion. Let us imagine a
cube composed of 27 small cubes, and
let us imagine this cube asexpanding and
contracting. During the process of expansion all the 26 cubes lying
around the central cube will retreat from it and on contraction will
approach it again. For the sake of convenience in reasoning and in
order to increase the likeness of the cube to a body consisting of
molecules, let us suppose that the cubes have no dimension, that they
are nothing but points. In other words, let us take only the centres of
the 27 cubes and imagine them connected by lines both with the centre
and with each other. Visualising the expansion of this cube, composed
of 27 cubes, we may say that in order to avoid colliding with another
cube and hindering its motion, each of these cubes must move away
from the centre, that is to say, along the line which connects its centre
with the centre of the central cube. This is the first rule: In the course
of expansion and contraction molecules move along the lines
which connect them with the centre.
