The results of the Akabane test, conducted in 900 healthy subjects (513 women and 387 men) aged 5 to 88 years on the basis of correlation, regression and factor analysis of interchannel bonds made it possible to reveal a stable dipole structure in the form of Yin / Yang monad. At the same time, in normal, on one Yin pole of the dipole there are acupuncture channels (AС) forming the primary element of Water (KI + BL). The other, opposite, Yan pole of the dipole forms the primary element Fire, which includes 4 channels: (HT + SI + PC + TE). Between the poles of the dipole is a conditional demarcation line at the level of the first elements of the Tree, Earth and Metal. Taking into account the theoretical maximum number of open points on the channels forming the 2 poles of the dipole, a 1.6 proportion is formed close to the ratio of the "Golden Section" in 1.62, which determines the harmonious state of the organism in the norm. According to the results of the Akabane test, in each specific case it is possible to calculate the ratio of the poles of a dipole and thus assess the degree of harmony in the body and its potential capabilities. When assessing the changes in the dipole pole ratios as a function of age, it was found that in the early childhood and in extreme old age, the average dipole indices are equalized to 50/50%. Regression analysis showed a lifetime relationship in men with AC-TE-r, BL, LR-r in women with AC -TE-l, BL, LR-1.
