Paper Abstract

In previous paper, process-specific times (PSTs) are defined by use of molecular reaction dynamics and time quantum theory established by TCY Liu et al., and the change of PSTs representing two weakly nonlinearly coupled bio-processes are shown to be parallel, which is called time parallel principle (TPP). The PST of a physiological process (PP) is called physiological time (PT). After the PTs of two PPs are compared with their Yin-Yang property of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the PST model of Yin and Yang (YPTM) was put forward: for two related processes, the process of small PST is Yin, and the other process is Yang. The Yin-Yang parallel principle (YPP) was put forward in terms of YPTM and TPP, which is the fundamental principle of TCM. In this paper, we apply it to study TCM on the effects of low intensity laser on cells, and successfully explained observed phenomena.
