You probably once heard Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)…
Imagine that for generations and generations in our ancestors to us today we have been forced to piss into a darkbox to get a (pseudo) diagnosis mixing our state of health, metabolic state, our future and especially the potential coercions that individuals/groups will then be able to exercise on us.
No, don't imagine! You have probably experienced it or will experience it one day soon.
As biohackers we will explore these social, biological and political mechanisms. We will dismantle and disassemble dark boxes
We start by reproducing the urine-based pregnancy test of the Egypt XIXth dynasty (-1296/-1186) (ref)

"Egyptian medicine incorporated many fundamental physiological observations about the living body that had been made from ancient times. But the Egyptians’ very complicated religion ruled all. For them, the distinction between life and death was of especially deep concern. The living body is warm, breathes, and moves. Death is the absence of these qualities, and the corpse is cold and still. The heart was the center of life. It is the source of life-giving heat and the house of the soul. The rapid beating of the heart in anger, fear, and surprise indicated that these emotions arose in the heart. It was believed that the pulse was the heart “speaking” to the rest of body through the blood vessels (French, 1978a)" THE RISE OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY. An Illustrated History Edited by Peter L. Lutz, PhD Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL. Foreword by Bob Boutilier, PhD.
"The 19th-Dynasty Berlin Papyrus (Berlin 3038; c. 1250 BC; Wreszinski 1909; Bardinet 1995: 409-36), which comprises over 204 paragraphs, was discovered in a pottery vessel buried over 3m below the surface of the sand in the Saqqara region. Consisting, like the Kahun papyrus, primarily of gynaecological remedies and diagnoses, it is the only surviving medical text that preserves a reference to the scribe who composed it, described as ‘scribe of the sacred writings, chief of excellent physicians (swnw), [who made] the book’. A smaller, slightly earlier, medical papyrus at Berlin Museum (Berlin 3027) dates to the 18th Dynasty and has the title ‘book of protection for mother and child’."

What's in seed's root

TL;DR: It's about hairs, root hairs area where liquid / nutriments are absorbed. The elongation zone, with root hairs, is the site of rapid and extensive cell elongation. Although some cells continue to divide while they elongate within this zone, the rate of division decreases progressively to zero with increasing distance from the meristem. Phloem-conducting cells also begin to differentiate in the elongation zone.
Re-inventing the wheel
We go forward and launch Circular Chromatography on our urine and also OHL SAUCE Centrifuge tests ==
