he strands of this network consist, in conformity with their origin, of parallel rows of micellæ extending lengthwise. These rows of micellæ are combined into more or less complex arrangements, so that the cross section of the strand represents the configuration of the idioplasm.[B]
[B] Nägeli makes his idioplasm ramify throughout the organism in unbroken continuity, much like a system of nerves in the higher animals. This idea with Nägeli was purely speculative. It was known that the protoplasm is in connection throughout the organism, but it has been proved more recently that only the somatic protoplasm is thus connected.
