Taking breath in is a syntropic activity in sequence after expelling breath or exhalation, an entropic activity. The two combined together is breathing (one dual motion) as in the Universal Heart Beat.
"Inhalation is for the purpose of continuing the apparent existence of form in matter.
"Inhalation is regeneration. It is integration. It vitalises, nourishes, refreshes. It continues that which is known as life." Russell, The Universal One, Book 02 - Chapter 01 - Dynamics of Mind - Concerning Light Units of Matter
"All motion is oscillatory, swinging in sequence between two apparently opposing forces, gravitation and repulsion, which are respectively electric and magnetic.
"This oscillatory motion is a pulsating in-breathing and out-breathing, an inhalation and an exhalation, which is a characteristic of all matter, whether it be in units, or systems of units, or mass.
"These two apparently opposite forces are the father-mother forces of Mind, which, added together, make but the One force." Russell, The Universal One, Book 01 - Chapter 02 - The Life Principle
