The human basic “Constitution” is transmitted by the parental essences (Jing).
In the pre-natal stage, the constitution will influence the preferential development of specific organ systems, thus defining the physiology and the morphology of the person. Additionally, the constitution (Jing & Zong Qi) will predispose the development of a specific “Temperament”.
Together with post-natal conditioning and personal life experiences the constitution and the temperament are responsible for the formation of individual belief systems and the psycho-emotional expressions of a person.
The basic belief mechanisms and habitual mind-sets will further define how the outer world is perceived and will influence the physiology as well as the pathology of a person.
