The following module represents an introductory context to physiology and biological function and is intended to be a foundation pattern for the function of the organs as they evolve.  We ahve already explored some of these principles as we initiated the concept of biological principles. We will advance the concepts of the type of forces and orderly  interactions that occur between organs, tissues and cells since physiology is really about changing one form of energy or force into another so that the energy can be used for survival and growth.

Therereafter we will introduce a basic pattern of how the biological units handle the different energy sources they function with and will note that they have to first have a mechanism to receive, and then to process, and finally to export the products at hand.

Lastly we will introduce the basic functions that each organism or biological unit needs in order to survive and be useful to the organism.  They include
