Geography is a human sense to a unhuman humanity. In the modern colonial city the Spirit is material and metaphysical, and your scission and union are the casual moraline. The Spirit necessity was the colonizer necessity which means the own process of colonization is the engendering of this necessity - the cities and urbans necessity. And the nessity of a lot of moraline - substance whose materiality is the body and the soul is the reason: it is the contradiction between body and soul that stablishes the union of material (city) and universal (urban). The happening of this process is the Geographic Dimension of Being which means the effectiveness of the senses this moraline and all that it is - city-moraline-urban. Thus, the phisiology of an urban colonial person is the phisiology of city moraline. In this meaning, the soil waterproofing process also contitutes this phisiology, scientifically observable in its dynamics as changes that contitutes in hydrodinamic, microclimate and population health over the years. Furthermore, it is relevant to consider circulatory system diseases became the main type of global death. Among the causes explaining predominance and spatial distribution of this type of death are environmental factors which are specially the climatic determinats. Along with, the investigation presented in this monography scope had as purpose analize the relation between soil waterproofing and the death occurence caused by circulatory system diseases using as support satellite images and data from Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) and from Brazilian National Health System (SUS) in the county of São Paulo, Estate of São Paulo - Brazil, in 2015. The \"scientifically obtained\" results sustain at least two fundamental considerations: 1) deaths associated with circulatory system diseases cannot be understood satisfactorily without consider your location and distribution; 2) environmental factors as soil waterproofing can show a \"determination\" about localization and distribution of this death type, indicating the need of further studies on this subject. Moreover, the analysis of the relation between soil waterproofind and death occurence caused by circulatory system diseases made it possible another generical approach of the question titled \"Dialectical Geographic Sensualism\", a standing that has been demonstrated more questining than absolutely conclusive in view of scientific procedure that was considered as part and not aside from this colonial modern phisiology.
