Guiding principle

Lead has the ability to form boundaries. It has a structuring and ordering effect in the human organism. Another characteristic of lead is its connection to warmth. It does not conduct warmth, it retains warmth within it.

Lead processes and spleen activity show a similar ability to differentiate and form structures. Lead serves as protection against radiation.
