Abstract: Theory of Meridian-Cortical-Viscera Interrelationship suggests Meridian (Jinguo) is an individual system. Meridian Science was founded based on biological experimentation in early Chinese medicine. The Jingluo Bronze acupuncture statue (circ Song dynasty 1027 BC), which is the bases of traditional Chinese Acupuncture, has revealed 4-Dimensional structural lines along the human body that corresponds to lines of neurobiologically active sites. The primary focus of Meridian Science is the investigation of the regulatory process in the human body. From scientific studies there seems to be correlation between the intercellular space in the biological model and Meridian pathways. Thus, Meridian Science could provide insights into the mechanism of Tradition Chinese Medicine, with potentially great benefits to human health care. There two primary categories of studies in Meridian Science, 1) the study of the effects of Chinese herbs and medicines on the human body and 2) the study of the physiological and psychological effects and mechanism of Meridian lines and pathways. Specifically, the phenomenon of Acupuncture and Meridian pathways can be illustrated by a bi-directional feedback loop that crosses vertebrates segments along the human body and the perceived sensation of the stimulus by the human brain, or even caused by Qigong. The theory of Meridian Science bases on :(1) Yin Yang of human body and various components of the environment; (2) coordination between life and universe; (3) circulation of Qi and body fluid in the Meridian pathway to regulate the visceral organs. The basic concepts of Meridian Science include: (1) identity structure; (2) time in Meridian circulation; (3) space on Meridian architecture; (4) death and life; (5) dominance and recessiveness in the Meridian pathway sensation; and (6) entirety function in human body.
