By the coordination of physiological archival and cosmophysical mapping, basic and applied purposes are served. First, time structure maps, physical or biological, represent reference values that dynamically define normalcy, including, by the use of certain physiological variables, a quantification of health. Second, analyses of physiological recordings aligned with cosmo-helio-geophysical data detect health hazards such as those posed by magnetic storms. T hird, ongoing ontogenetic and phylogenetic mapping may allow hypotheses concerning (if not cosmogeny, then) at least effects from beyond the solar system, if sensitive physiological indices change before a magnetic storm in interplanetary space, as human blood pressure may do, rather than concomitantly with a storm, as may human heart rate, or on the day following a magnetic storm, as human myocardial infarctions do. Fourth, as humans venture further into extraterrestrial space, away from hospitals, the monitoring for the early detection of disease risk syndromes as a step toward the timely implementation of countermeasures for reducing risk becomes a most important task. Fifth, a cross-sectional human and eventually a longitudinal comparative physiological approach, examining the evolution of the physiological time structures, can lead to testable hypotheses concerning the origins of life. These points were recognized by the late Boris Nikityuk, to whose memory this article is dedicated.
