The iris of the eye is the most complex tissue of the body meeting the outside world. It is an extension of the brain, being incredibly endowed with hundreds of thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, muscle and other tissues.
The iris is connected to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the brain and nervous system. The nerve fibers receive their impulses by way of their connections to the optic nerve, optic thalami and spinal cord. They are formed embryologically from mesoderm and neuroectoderm tissues. Both sympathetic and parasympathic nervous systems are present in the iris.
In this way, Nature has provided us with a miniature television screen showing the most remote portions of the body by way of nerve reflex responses. We are discovering that the eye works two ways; not only does it enable us to bring images of theoutside world within, it also shows images of what is within to the outside.
Nerve fibers in the iris respond to changes in body tissues by manifesting a reflex physiology that corresponds to specific tissue changes and locations.
The scientific explanation of exactly how this process works neurologically is still forthcoming. Much research is being devoted to a clearer understanding of this phenomena.
In the meantime, we can rest confidently in the over 150 years of collected empirical data to know that what we have learned to date is very accurate and reliable for the majority of normally organized human beings.
The iris reveals an individual's strengths and weaknesses and what has been done to the body through incorrect living habits. It also reveals the wonder of one who has lived a good life according to the laws of the universe.
