The premier of 
The Living Matrix: a new film on the science of healing 
is anauspicious event that portends significant developments in health and medical research.The reason for this bold statement is that
the living matrix
concept summarizes severalmajor advances in our understanding of the nature of cells and tissues in the human body.To be specific, the images of the cell and itssurroundings in most textbooks (drawing to theleft) are seriously outdated, and this means that beginning students of biology and medicine startwith an inaccurate and incomplete picture at theoutset of their education. We shall see that manyconfusions and controversies are resolved by themore accurate picture conceptualized as

.To summarize, the drawing shown above depicts the cell as a bag of solution with a feworganelles such as the cell nucleus and mitochondria more or less floating about within it.The cell and its contents forma distinct entity, separablefrom the surroundingextracellular matrix or connective tissue. A moreaccurate picture (right) revealsthat the DNA, nucleus,cytoplasm, and extracellular matrix form a continuouslyinterconnected system. Thefollowing summarizes thestory of how this new pictureevolved and the science thathas enlivened and energized

We begin with a story about energy. In 1941 Albert Szent-Györgyi, who hadreceived the Nobel Prize in 1937 for the synthesis of Vitamin C, gave the KorányiMemorial Lecture in Budapest, Hungary. His talk was published in both Science(
Towards a New Biochemistry?
and Nature (
The Study of Energy Levels in Biochemistry
at a time when his country and all of Europe were descending into thechaos of WWII. The remarkable insight that was the topic of his presentation was that proteins are semiconductors, rather than insulators, as had been thought previously.Semiconductors are intermediate in conductivity between conductors, such as copper wires, and insulators, such as the coverings of electrical cables. In essence, our bodies arecomposed mainly of materials that are similar in properties to the substances that make possible our modern computers, cell phones, televisions and so on. He introduced his newideas as follows:
 If a great number of atoms is arranged with regularity in close proximity, as for instance, in a crystal lattice, the...electrons... cease to belong to one or two atoms only, and belong to the whole system…A great number of molecules may join to form energy continua, along which energy, viz.,excited electrons, may travel a certain distance.
This means that the human body contains free or mobile electrons that can moveabout within the fabric of the body. These electrons are energetic and can thereforetransfer energy and information from place to place. The 1941 report proved to be prophetic, although it was not recognized as such at the time. The area where these ideashave had the most impact is in nanoelectronics
the world-wide search for ways of using atoms and molecules as miniature components of electronic circuits. Szent-Györgyi’s insight is now recognized as one of the foundations of the modern molecular electronics industry.
 Like most new ideas, the concept that proteins are semiconductors was immediatelyrejected by the scientific community. Scientists who checked to see if electrons could beconducted through proteins found that the materials were better described as insulators.However, there was a flaw in their measurements. The proteins they studied had been
