26). The dura mater, arachnoid layer, and pia mater are connective tissue sacs that surround and protect the brain, and are in turn surrounded by and awash in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). These membranes arise from the neural crest, a special area at the junction between the mesoderm and ectoderm in the developing embryo. They interact with the central nervous system and the CSF to produce a series of palpable pulses within the dorsal cavity, and by extension, to the fascial net as a whole. ' These pulses are well known to the cranial osteopaths and others who use them therapeutically, though the mechanism is not yet well understood, and even the existence of these wave motions is still denied by some.

The skin is much like our own skin - designed to deal with the outside world. 24. Each segment is separated from the next by a wall we see when we cut the grapefruit through the equator for breakfast. But when we peel it and separate the sections as we might with an orange, we realize that the seeming one wall is actually two walls one half goes with each section. The intermuscular septa are the same way. We often separate them with a knife, so we think of them as simply the epimysium of each muscle.

Elastin, as its name implies, is employed in areas such as the ear, skin, or particular ligaments where elasticity is required. Collagen, by far the most common protein in the body, predominates in the fascial net, and is readily seen - indeed, unavoidable - in any dissection or even any cut of meat. There are around 20 types of collagen fiber, but the distinctions need not concern us here, and Type 1 is by far the most ubiquitous in the structures under discussion. These fibers are composed of amino acids that are assembled like Lego® in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex of the fibroblast and then extruded into the intercellular space, where they form spontaneously (under conditions described below) into a variety of arrays.
