Breaking News: Scientists Convert the Sequences of Proteins into Music

"We converted the sequence of proteins into music and can get an auditory signal for every
protein," said Jeffrey H. Miller, distinguished professor of microbiology, immunology and
molecular genetics, and a member of UCLA's Molecular Biology Institute. "Every protein will
have its unique auditory signature because every protein has a unique sequence. You can
hear the sequence of the protein."

"We assigned a chord to each amino acid," said Rie Takahashi, a UCLA research assistant
and an award-winning, classically trained piano player. "We want to see if we can hear
patterns within the music, as opposed to looking at the letters of an amino acid or protein
sequence. We can listen to a protein, as opposed to just looking at it."

The building blocks of proteins are linear sequences of 20 different amino acids. Assigning
one note for each amino acid therefore results in a 20-note scale.

"A 20-note scale is too large a range," Takahashi said. "You need a reduced scale, so we
paired similar amino acids together and used chords and chord variations for each amino
acid. We used each component of the music to indicate a specific characteristic of the
protein. We are faithful in the conversion from the sequence to the music. The rhythm is
dictated by the protein sequence."

On the biologists' website, you can listen to the compositions and even submit your own
genetic sequence and have it translated into music. The browser allows anyone to send in a
sequence coding for a protein, which will then be converted into music and returned as a
MIDI audio file. The research is published in Genome Biology, a major journal in the field of

1. Embryonic Holography

Richard Alan Miller & Burt Webb


Holography is the process of recording and recreating complex three-dimensional wave

fronts in space. The holography with which we are most familiar deals mostly with the visible
spectrum, so we tend to think of holography in terms of three-dimensional photography.

However, holography can be conceived in different realms of the spectrum. The process of
lasers and laser abilities to create images in space in visible light radiation is closely
connected to microwave research and a device called a "maser" which broadcasts coherent
radiation of microwave frequencies. It should be possible, in theory, with the proper kind of
equipment, to capture and broadcast complex three-dimensional wave form structures in
space across a broad band of the electromagnetic spectrum. We can call this "broad band
holography. Thus holography here refers to a whole range of processes for capturing wave
forms at different frequencies.

Some of the interesting properties of holography have to do with its differences from
photography. In photography, light from an object is reflected onto a flat surface where it
essentially discolors that surface; or rather, the shadow that it casts discolors that surface. If
you cut a photograph in half, you have half of the original picture. Holography is quite
different. In a hologram, the pattern of light created by the object is recorded at each point of
the film. Each grain contains the whole image. Each image is slightly different, however, and
all of the images are very vague and fuzzy.

Detail in a photograph is not particularly connected to the size in the sense that a small
piece of a photograph will have a lot of detail on a small area of the scene. A large
photograph will have a lot of detail on all of the scene. In a hologram, each grain has some
of the information about the whole scene. A large hologram has a lot of details about the
whole scene. Something different happens when you cut a hologram in half: you get the
original picture, but it is less clear because you have lost detail.

A lot of work has been done over the past several decades on the electromagnetic field
phenomena associated with biological processes. The idea is nothing new, of course.
Farraday did some experimentation with animal electricity, and Galvanni (with his Galvannic
cells) did experiments with animals. It was quite understandable in the growth of science to
accept life as being electronic.

However, within the last fifty years, our intense activity in the biological field and the
breakthroughs in molecular biology (DNA research, etc.) have tended to obscure some
deeper questions as to the nature of life. We are reaching the end of the paradigm in which
we can afford to ignore the electromagnetic properties of the macro-system and deal with
chemistry as if it were taking place in a neutral system. This new field can be termed "bio-

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 3 of 24

electronic": a term based on biophysics.

Conventional biophysics seems to be centered around very minute detail of things, such as
ion exchanges across cell membranes. Very little contact is made with the idea that
electromagnetic systems may regulate the whole multi-cellular organism--and not merely
function at the level of cells.

Regulation of the nervous system is thought to be primarily a biochemical phenomenon in

the sense that it involves the exchange or profusion of calcium and potassium across a cell
membrane. In such a system what you essentially have is a ripple effect that travels down
the process of the cell, a chemical signal caused by an exchange of ions. Even though
electromagnetics is appreciated in the nervous system, it is seen as an epi-phenomenon
that is not integral to the regulation of the system. Such a theory does little justice to the
complexity and subtlety of living processes.

Some of the specific electronic characteristics in the cell could pertain to the presence or
absence of various chemicals that either accept or donate electrons. Electron donation or
electron acceptance are connected to older ideas of acids and bases, of chemical processes
called oxidation and reduction. From this perspective one is forced to approach a biological
solution--say, interior body fluids--on the basis of the electrolytes in solution: the different
ionized and charged particles. And this is only the beginning.

We must deal also with the fields that exist, the potentials and polarities. The charged
particles in the fields begin to generate flows, forcing us to come to terms with a process
called electrophoresis, which is the movement of small particles by an electrostatic field.
Here we also recognize the possibility of electrodynamic fields moving particles in waves.

What we have, essentially, is a solution of charged particles under a very complex control
via a complicated electromagnetic field system that moves solutions around. But in moving
the solutions, the charged distributions inside the organism change and modify the fields. In
other words, there is a highly complex feedback between flows of particles and
electromagnetic fields.

We have an incredibly complex situation compared to a motor in which a simple

electromagnetic field system is cut by a simple metallic conductor. We have an organic
system in which there are literally billions of fields being generated by enormous numbers of
particles--all being created, changed, switched around. There also possibly exists an
interaction between the structure of a physical system and the fluid flows within that system,
with the heart being one of the most profound examples of the latter. The heart could be
seen as setting up a system of waves of movement that form the basis--the fundamental
note--of the organic system.

There are many other interesting bioelectronic characteristics. One of the most fascinating is
the fact that protein-formed structures in cellular space are based on the charged distribution
across their surface, which is related to the sequence of amino acids in their particular side-
chains, which determines their tendencies to act. Amino acids have been called semi-
conductor in nature on the basis of one end being an electron acceptor and the other being
an electron donor. These link up into chains, which have little side-spines with their own

It is possible that charge movement takes place across the surface of a protein. A line of
side-chains sticks out of the surface of a protein molecule, forming a charge distribution
system that acts almost like an electrical conductor. Electrons could hop along the spines
sticking out from the side of the protein molecule and actually flow across the surface as if

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 4 of 24

traveling along a conductor.

We possess any number of interesting prostheses, or special radicals in the sense of

molecular substructures, that have a whole host of purposes. For instance, the heme of
hemoglobin is a very fascinating iron prosthesis. This conjunction of iron and other atoms
arrayed in space is very small compared to the size of the globin molecule to which it is
attached, but very effective for acting as a grappling hook for oxygen. Such processes are
under electronic control. Charge flow and distribution in a protein molecule are critical to
changes in its shape.

There is evidence of special tissue in the back of rats, in fatty pads, that can uncouple
oxidation energy instead of converting it to ATP. Special enzymes convert oxidation energy
directly into infrared radiation and radiate it out of their bodies. It is thus conceivable that
infrared radiation takes place as a result of bioelectronic processes in proteins. In addition,
recent research has detected microwaves in the brain and the heart of humans and rabbits.

Clearly, a living organic system is a very complex holographic entity interfacing with various
forms of electromagnetic activity.

In the nucleus of each human cell, DNA carries the structure of our whole body. Not just our
physical form, but also the processes that form undergoes in terms of survival. It is possible
that DNA is a holographic projector, one that projects a field that is somehow experienced
by other DNA in the body. Not only is DNA thus probably linked, DNA is also linked to its
own cells that it regulates via mechanisms of RNA transfer and enzymatic action. It is further
likely that DNA and RNA are in direct communication.

Recent research has shown the possibility that DNA activates the motion of an RNA
sphincter or iris mechanism to permit or exclude ion entrance into the cell. If this is true, and
if DNA controls the action of RNA that goes to the ribosomes and other sites to create
specific enzymes in the cell that lead to further developments, it seems reasonable that
cellular enzymes are also under DNA's control.

DNA appears to be the projector of a biohologram, both at cellular and organismic levels.
This means that DNA is responsible for creating a complex pattern of three-dimensional
electromagnetic standing and moving wave fronts in the space that the organism occupies.
We believe that these wave fronts interact with, interpenetrate and interdetermine the
physical substance that makes up the creature.

The biohologram has characteristic properties that include the ability to affect the DNA that
occupies specific positions within the biohologram. In such a situation the nervous system
constitutes, first and foremost, a coordination mechanism that integrates DNA projections
across all of the cells in the biohologram--aligning these cellular holograms and linking the
whole creature hologram.

DNA in a particular cell is not totally active. There may be as little as one percent of the DNA
present in the nucleus of the cell acting as the determinant for the structure of that cell. The
nervous system, interestingly enough, has the highest percentage of operating DNA of any
cell system in the body--up to ten percent activation in brain cells where neuron nuclei are
most active.

If the membrane structure of neuron nuclei are examined closely, it will be seen that the
different cavity systems that enter the outer and also inner membranes are, topologically, a
single membrane. Thus their nucleus is effectively lacking a membrane. In other words,
neurons may not actually be brain cells as such. We believe that the brain is the cell, and

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 5 of 24

neurons are like a distributed cellular nucleus, making glial cells, which are intimately
involved in the biohologram's projections and coordination, organelles in the giant brain-cell.

The biohologram, projected by the brain, creates standing and moving electromagnetic
wave patterns at different frequencies of the spectrum in order to effect different biochemical
transformations. There may be specific electrostatic fields, or there may be electrodynamic
fields with various frequencies from low radio waves all the way up the spectrum into visible
light and beyond.

Another process important to our discussion of holography is called "acoustical holography."

Acoustical holography employs sound waves to create a movement on a surface that is
used as the basis for creation of an optical hologram. Essentially, acoustical holography
converts between a pattern of sound waves reflected off an object in space into a pattern of
light waves that can reconstruct the shape of the original object. Here we have a
transformation between two levels of vibration, two media as it were, preserving a pattern in

This conversion process happens as a matter of course in the way DNA regulates our
bodies. The special function of liver cells, for example, is created by the influence of the
projection of the liver pattern on DNA in the cells where the liver is created. We are
suggesting an important feedback mechanism between activation of DNA in a particular
cellular tissue type that causes it to be that tissue type, and the biohologram being projected
by the nervous system. This is the essence of bioholography.


Human sexuality is usually viewed as a physical-chemical complex. A more coherent

viewpoint would see human sexuality in terms of electronics. We will not go into the detail of
the electronic behaviour of the nervous system of the human being during intercourse, but
we will begin the story with ovulation.

Researchers have found that at the moment of ovulation there is a definite shift in the
electrical fields of a woman's body. The membrane in the follicle bursts and the egg passes
down the fallopian tubes. The phases of the moon quite probably influence the permeability
of the membrane in the follicle, making it more likely that the egg will pass down the fallopian
tubes at certain periods of time. The sperm is negative with respect to the egg. When the
sperm and the egg unite, the membrane around the egg becomes hyper-polarized. It is at
this moment that the electromagnetic entity is formed.

The fertilized egg cell contains all the information necessary to create a complete
operational human being. Furthermore, this biohologram begins to function at conception,
and only ceases to function at death. Perhaps, then, conception is the proper place to mark
the beginning of the individual.

The zygote begins to divide as it travels down the fallopian tube. It is quite possible that it
navigates its passage partially by sensing the biohologram of the mother. And this may
actually assist the zygote as it approaches and attaches to the wall of the uterus.

As soon as attachment to the wall of the uterus is complete, the zygote begins the process
of establishing the linkage with the mother's circulatory system that will permit the passage
of blood carrying important nutrients into the zygote. The womb is a special electronic
environment in which an electrolytic solution provides an excellent framework for
electromagnetic effects which are necessary in the development of the egg.

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 6 of 24


The developing zygote is spherical in shape at first. Then it flattens to become the
embryonic disk. The disk differentiates into three layers: the inner layer (the endoderm) will
become the visceria--digestion, blood, etc; the middle layer (the mesoderm) will become the
musculature; and the outer layer (the ectoderm), furthest away from the wall of the uterus,
will become the nervous system and skin.

Very early in development, one of the first appearances of discrete structure has to do with
the formation of the neural tube. From a point in the center of the embryonic disk, a radial
line defines itself out to the edge of the disk. On both sides of this line, called the neural
groove, the flesh puckers up and curves over to form a tube. This is called the neural tube.
Both ends of the neural tube are originally open. It is possible that field lines could pass
through the tube, that the tube is actually entrapping electromagnetic lines of force.

Eventually, the tube closes on both ends, trapping the amnionic fluid in the cerebrospinal
space. The cerebrospinal fluid is an analog of the amnionic fluid that the embryo develops
in. It is probable that the nervous system, especially the brain, retains some embryonic
properties throughout the life of the organism. It is a safe assumption that the brain is, in a
sense, the most infantile tissue in the body.

As mentioned before, the greatest percentage of the genome is active in the brain; this
agrees well with the idea that the brain is neo-embryonic because originally all of the
genome in the nucleus of embryonic cells is functional. It is only with development that most
of the genome shuts down and specific cells begin to function, operating on only a fraction of
their genetic potential.

During formation of the neural tube, one end (the end that is in the center of the embryonic
disk) begins to expand, enfold, twist and develop itself into a system of complex tissues in
complicated geometrical structures, which will become the brain. It appears that the brain
and central nervous system are necessary for the development of the creature, as they
predate generation of most of the structure of the body.

The study of cymatics has to do with the creation of structures from the resonance of wave
patterns. As an example, if a drumhead is covered with fine sand and then caused to vibrate
by drawing a violin bow across the edge of the diaphragm or drumhead, the sand will
arrange itself in geometrical patterns. It will flow into lines that mark nodal lines of zero
motion that separate zones of the drumhead that are moving in different directions. The
simplest structure would be a single line that is the diameter of the drumhead, signifying that
one half is pulsating differently from the other half. Yet the line between them is not moving--
a phenomenon that is very important to an understanding of biological development.

The biohologram projected by way of DNA in the embryonic nervous system forms a three-
dimensional pattern of resonant structures--including points, lines, and planes--that
electromagnetically behave as the acoustic (material) waves of the drumhead. In other
words, these electromagnetic points, lines and planes form locations of no movement.
Essentially the matter (electrolytic solutions) that are flowing, having been drawn from the
blood of the mother, are caused to move rhythmically through the developing embryo. At
certain points, lines and planes their motion stops. This is where structures are laid down
and built up--a key process of embryonic holography.

The zygote acts like a three-dimensional nozzle. Electrolytes from the mother's bloodstream
flow through this nozzle into the cymatic structure of standing wave patterns distributed
through space inside the embryo and become fixed, solidified structures. This accounts for

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 7 of 24

different physiological zones and the separation of these zones into tissue groups.

The picture is completed by the effects of the biohologram on the DNA of the cells that have
formed along with the migration of the substances. We have an actual migration of cells, as
well as a migration of substances throughout the embryo that take up locations dependent
on resonant structures of standing wave patterns. The cells, having arrived at their proper
location and beginning to involve themselves with the materials and the fluids that are
flowing in the three-dimensional nozzle, are then specified in their particular tissue nature by
the biohologram being projected from the nervous system.

These tissue cells are refined and developed as their genome is shut down until only the
DNA that operates in a particular type of tissue group cell is operative. Thus through a
complex interaction, a kind of feedback loop, of three-dimensional electromagnetic fields
rapidly dividing cells and directing the flow of electrolytes into those cells, a multi-cellular
organism achieves the proper structure that will permit it to exist apart from the specialized
environment of the womb.

This brings us to the close of embryological development. When the proper point is reached
at which a potentially self-sustaining entity has been created, then the conditions begin to
change, leading to the expulsion of the new self-sufficient entity from the mother's womb.
We are now ready to enter a new developmental phase.

Postnatal Development

Birth occurs. The fetus is expelled from the electromagnetic environment of the womb, and
enters a world of separate gases, liquids, and solids. The biohologram which led to the
development and stabilization of the entity now takes on its important control behaviour that
is necessary to keep the organism alive and well throughout its life. The biohologram
changes its action with changes in media. Its responsibility is no longer the actual
development of structures, but rather the regulation of processes within those structures.

Very little has been said about the potential interaction of the biohologram of the mother and
the developing baby. We do not know very much about this subject, except that the
possibility of interaction certainly exists. However, at the moment of birth such an intimate
interlocking of holograms ceases as the entity enters the world alone, at least in the sense
that it can interact bioholographically with other creatures only under certain conditions.

Evidence has been found that certain kinds of salamanders possess a complex system of
electromagnetic sensing based on a string of spots along their side. As long as such a
salamander is in salt water, which is an excellent electromagnetic conductor, this system of
spots serves to detect three-dimensional electromagnetic field changes around the
salamander--thereby alerting it to food, enemies, etc. But the salamander spends part of its
time on dry land. When it comes on dry land, its holographic detection system withers and
ceases to function because there is no longer a medium to sustain the necessary
electromagnetic fields. However, when the salamander re-enters water, the holographic
detection system comes back on.

One reasonable possibility is that humans and other multi-cellular land creatures have such
an external holographic detection system in the womb. Just as with our salamander in the
above example, this external system tends to atrophy in the atmosphere because it does not
have sufficient media to sustain the necessary electromagnetic fields. That said, there is still
a very slight leakage of the biohologram beyond the entity's skin. This slight leakage is the
basis of a great deal of paranormal phenomena and is definitely the origin of the concept of
the aura.

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 8 of 24

Under certain circumstances and in certain individuals in abnormal states, the projected bio-
field becomes faintly visible. It is possible, as recent research has shown, that the human
eye can detect other frequencies than the strictly visual frequencies of light. Since the
leaking biohologram may actually be on a different frequency than the visible spectrum, it
appears that our eye transduces or translates it into the visible spectrum. The aura is
intimately connected to the biohologram that causes the body to continue to function

Dowsing might possibly be related to an external functioning of the organism's

bioholographic system. Experiments have shown that dowsers detect extremely minute
changes in geo-magnetism, which are probably connected to the presence of water
underground. We are mostly water, and the structuring of water in our systems is very
closely connected to our bioelectronic behavior. It is conceivable that we have some sort of
sympathetic resonance that can permit us to detect a very minute magnetic field change
associated with underground water.

Ionization of the air also would potentially permit the expansion of the biohologram (aura)
further beyond the skin. Areas of high ionization (such as mountaintops, coasts, waterfalls,
etc.) have been known since time immemorial as holy or magical places. This might be
connected to the fact that the increased ionization in the atmosphere permits the expansion
of the aura or biohologram to the extent that the bioholograms of individuals can interact or
to the extent that an individual can manipulate this biohologram to cause external effects
that would be perceived by ancient superstitious people as magic.

As long as the biohologram functions properly, as long as the nervous system continues to
coordinate and project the complex three-dimensional fields that support the oganism's
biological processes, the entity survives. When the biohologram ceases to function properly,
the organism suffers. And when the principle action of the biohologram stops, the organism

If there is any scientific correlate to the concept of the Soul, it is most probably this
bioholographic pattern system, which is composed of the ultimate stuff of the universe:
electromagnetic field energy that does not die in the sense that creatures die, but is, like the
Soul, immortal. The biohologram, however, does change with growth, learning, experience,
and age--showing development of the Soul or electromagnetic field entity.

Although a great deal more research needs to be done, it is conceivable that the
electromagnetic entity might be capable of an independent existence which would form the
basis for the concept of life after death. However, a free electromagnetic entity without a
biophysiological matrix might have a difficult time interacting with creatures, such as
ourselves, still utilizing the biophysiological matrix.

Such a situation might be the origin of stories of ghosts and so forth, in which a disembodied
biohologram attempting to communicate with a physical creature could only enter the
nervous system of the creature and cause hallucinations of forms in space that on
examination disappear or turn out to be merely hallucinations, having no scientifically
verifiable existence.


In reptiles, tissue regeneration of a profound nature is possible. Entire limbs can be

replaced. The process goes something like this. A leg is lost. The damaged cells on the
stump revert to a neo-embryonic condition. They then undergo explosive growth. The growth
slows as the crude size and shape of the leg reappears. Refinement continues. Details

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 9 of 24

appear. Growth slows even further. Finally, a new leg exists.

Such regeneration is not possible in mammals. The greater detail and sophistication of the
biological machinery in mammals is made possible by the greater sophistication of the
bioholographic projection system, which we call the nervous system. In the case of a lost
limb, nerve linkages that permit the very sophisticated mammalian fields (that define our
appendages) to exist, is lacking. We can generate new tissue, but to regenerate nerve cells
seems much more difficult. And without those nerve cells being present in the new limb, the
final sophisticated stages of coordination are impossible.

Many theorists now tend toward the concept that cancerous tissue is tissue that has been
damaged in some fashion and has reverted to a neo-embryonic condition. However,
because the necessary coordination control is not possible for regeneration to proceed, the
cancerous tissue is stuck in the earliest stages of regeneration and merely continues to
divide and expand without any control whatsoever. This runaway behaviour, that is outside
the control of the physical biohologram, may itself be electromagnetic in nature.

If it is indeed true that cancerous tissue is runaway neo-embryonic tissue caused by a

partially functioning regeneration system, and if we come to understand this process better,
not only could we control cancer--but even more important and profound, we might be able
to unlock the key of complex mammalian regeneration processes so that someday it could
be possible to regenerate an entire human limb.

Robert Becker, in a series of experiments, has shown that bone regeneration can be tripled
in speed by the proper application of electromagnetic fields from the outside with no
implants necessary. This proves that electromagnetic fields have a profound role in the
generation and coordination of biological structures.

As mentioned, the biohologram appears closely connected to paranormal phenomena. It is

quite possible that psychic healers who "lay on hands" are, in essence, exporting the power
of their own bioholograms and asserting control of that biohologram over the sick, weak
biohologram that has permitted the disease condition to occur in the patient. Just in the way
that two oscillators that are connected will tend toward the frequency of the more powerful
oscillator, if two biohologram systems are connected, the more powerful biohologram may
entrain the weaker biohologram and restore it to its proper coordination function.

It is possible that psychic surgery occurs via a process of the location of the diseased tissue
through electromagnetic sensing inasmuch as diseased tissue has different electromagnetic
properties than healthy tissue. An invasion of the body of the patient by the hand of the
psychic surgeon occurs through manipulation of electromagnetic fields that actually cause
the skin to part and help to locate the diseased tissue and then cause the skin to reclose.

When a blood vessel is damaged, its polarity changes. If we can prevent that polarity
change, we can prevent blood from clotting. This may explain the mastery of bloodless, tool-
less psychic surgery in which a surgeon with bare hands can enter a human body and
withdraw tissue without leaving a cut. This phenomenon appears more as an interaction
between bioholograms than an actual interaction between physical substances. The
physical substances are moved aside and then rejoined by the operation of the biohologram,
thereby preventing blood loss or scarring.

In closing, we call the reader's attention to the fact that the earth, sun and planets are all
very complex electromagnetic entities. From the earliest existence of a bioholographic entity
in the womb, the sun, earth, moon, other planets and even stars beyond the solar system
influence and to some extent direct the development of the entity. This is a very concrete

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 10 of 24

electromagnetic connection that could serve as a scientific basis for explaining astrology.

Not only do these conditions influence prenatal development, but they are also present
postnatally and continue to influence the organism in a variety of interesting ways. Evidence
has come to light that the brain can intercept various frequencies of radiation from
astronomical and terrestrial phenomena. If this is so, then it provides a real scientific basis
for the statements of mystics that we are all inextricably woven into the fabric of the
universe. We are not separate, distinct physical entities, but rather partially interacting
electromagnetic entities that partake of the rich electromagnetic life of the universe.

2. Living Systems in Evolution

Elisabet Sahtouris

As an evolution biologist, my work and passion are looking at the evolving patterns of
biological living systems over time in order to make sense of our present human affairs in a
broad evolutionary context. One might say that I'm a "Pastist" looking for perspective that
will help me be a good Futurist. But I have an even deeper passion, which is to understand
myself, my world and the entire Cosmos in which we exist locally.

Within this broader mission I have long sought to undo the artificial barriers we have erected
between Science and Spirit for historical reasons, to reveal a richer worldview or
cosmovision. I especially like the latter term--cosmovision--for its breadth and depth to the
furthest reaches of what we can know through experience. The word cosmos is Greek, and
in Greek it means people, world or cosmos in the English sense, depending on context. So
cosmovision is a very inclusive term.

Every culture present and past has, or has had, its worldview or cosmovision. Western
science has evolved a cosmovision very different from all other human cultures, though it
has become the one most influential in all the world now. Its most obvious divergences from
other cosmovisions lie in its seeing life and consciousness only in Earth's biological
creatures, and in its narrowing of "reality" to what can be tested and measured scientifically.
This excludes from its reality gods, soul, spirit, dream experience, thoughts, feelings, values,
passions, enlightenment experiences, and many other aspects of consciousness beyond
their physiological correlates.

Given that no one, neither scientist nor anyone else, has ever had any experience outside

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 11 of 24

consciousness, these omissions seem gravely limiting and unrealistic.

Nevertheless, Western science has defined the universe as an array of non-living matter
and non-conscious energy--a universe in which changes over time are due to random or
accidental processes that assemble material particles, atoms and molecules into patterns
within the constraints of a few physical laws. Thus random events account for life, which is
seen as arising from non-life on the surface of one non-living planet, and possibly on others
yet undiscovered, evolving by Darwinian random mutations and "blind" natural selection.
The origin of the universe is seen as a Big Bang and its end envisioned as the gradual
wearing out of the Big Bang's spreading energy in "heat death"--the ultimate coldness in
which no further change takes place.

One way to sum up the essential difference between this Western scientific cosmovision and
all other human cultural cosmovisions is to see the former as portraying a universe in which
things happen by accident rather than by intelligent design.

The cosmovision which is the framework in which we attempt to understand the patterns of
biological evolution is enormously important. If evolution proceeds by accident, rather than
by intelligent intent, the same evidence for evolution, the same observations of it, will be
seen very differently. Context gives perspective, determining perception, meaning and
interpretation. And cosmovision, or worldview, is context. Humans, for example, will be seen
very differently in religious, economic, cultural and scientific perspectives.

While the Western scientific worldview as described gives a satisfying picture and
interpretation of nature to many scientists and persuades many others, and while its
adherents can feel awe at nature's complexity and beauty, ever larger numbers of people
either cannot accept it or feel impelled to revise and expand it. These numbers include many
scientists dissatisfied with its limitations. In fact, they are changing Western science very
rapidly now toward an understanding of nature as alive, self-organizing, intelligent,
conscious or sentient and participatory at all levels--from subatomic particles and molecules
to entire living planets, galaxies and the whole Cosmos, from local human consciousness to
Cosmic Consciousness.

The reductionist pursuit of matter to its tiniest particles helped us see all matter as
disturbances of a great energy field, now called the Zero Point Energy (ZPE) field, in which
everything is as dynamically interconnected as in Shiva's Dance or Indra's Net. Furthermore,
physics is now demonstrating nonlocality in this ZPE, meaning that information from any
spatial point in the universe is accessible at any other point, and that all events taking place
in the universe at any time are accessible at any other time.

Nonlocality thus implies a non-physical, non-timespace ground of being--deeper and more

essential than our mundane timespace reality--in which everything exists as potential to be
played out in our physical world and whatever other worlds exist. I am reminded of the Kogi
Indians of Colombia, saying of Aluna, their Creatrix, symbolized by water: "Through great
mental anguish She lived all possible worlds before creating them; thus she is called
Memory and Possibility." And I am reminded of the Mayoruna--the "Cat People" of the
Amazon--thought to be extinct until well-known explorer and National Geographic
photographer Loren MacIntyre stumbled on them while lost in the rainforest. Living with
them, MacIntyre not only learned to communicate their way--by the telepathy he called
"Amazon beaming"--but discovered that they easily handled two concepts of time: the
eternal Now of non-timespace and linear time as we understand it. That Now is also the
Dreamtime of the Australian aborigines and the Akashic records of the esoterics, and has
been made accessible through ritual and meditation in many human cultures: indigenous,
religious and other.

Most cultures understand the universe as conscious, and this Cosmic Consciousness, by
various names, as the source of Creation. Now science itself is coming close to these views
through quantum physicists' recognition that consciousness is essential to reality and
somehow a deep feature of the ZPE field or an even deeper non-timespace. Thus, our
scientific cosmovision is shifting 180 degrees from the view of consciousness as a late
product of material and biological evolution to the view of consciousness as the very source
of material and biological evolution.

In molecular genetic biology this shift is supported by fifty years of research evidence that
DNA reorganizes itself intelligently when organisms are environmentally stressed, and that
the required information transfer often seems to obey some form of nonlocality rather than
slower chemical or electromagnetic transmission. Rather than being the sources of variation
and evolution, errors known to occur in DNA during reproduction and by cosmic radiation or
other accidents are recognized at the molecular level and fixed by repair genes. Thus we
see intelligence at work not only in higher brains, but in the lowliest of bacteria and cellular
components. Clearly, we are moving toward a post-Darwinian era in evolution biology.

The earliest creatures of Earth, Archean bacteria, invented complex and diverse lifestyles,
rearranging the planet's crust to produce patches of oxides (rusted earth) and pure streams
of metals we mine today, including copper and uranium. They created an entirely new
atmosphere from their waste gases, especially oxygen, and forged huge continental shelf
formations. By evolving ways to exchange DNA information among themselves around the
world, we can rightly say they invented the first worldwide web of information exchange. The
importance of this astoundingly flexible gene pool, which exists to this day, cannot be
underestimated. It is still as active as in Archean times and is related, for example, to rapid
bacterial resistance to our antibiotics.

Information exchange gave bacteria close relationships that facilitated both competition and
cooperation in communal living. We have known of their communal lives for some time, but
only now are we able to investigate their amazing urban complexes in real detail and
understand how surprisingly like our own their history has been.

In what seems to us the almost unthinkably ancient past, the first half of Earth's four-and-a-
half-billion-year life, when bacteria still had the world to themselves, they not only discovered
the advantages of communal living but even evolved sophisticated cityscapes. We can see
their huge urban complexes today as slimy films--in wetlands, in dank closets, in the
stomachs of cows, in kitchen drains. Scientists call them biofilms or mucilages, as they look
like slimy brown or greenish patches to the unaided eye. Only now can we discover their
inner structure and functions with the newest microscopy techniques that magnify them
sufficiently without destroying them.

Looking closely for the first time at intact bacterial microcities, scientists are amazed to see
them packed as tightly as our own urban centers, but with a decidedly futuristic look. Towers
of spheres and cone- or mushroom-shaped skyscrapers soar 100 to 200 micrometers
upward from a base of dense sticky sugars, other big molecules and water, all collectively
produced by the bacterial inhabitants. In these cities, different strains of bacteria with
different enzymes help each other exploit food supplies that no one strain can break down
alone, and all of them together build the city's infrastructure. The cities are laced with
intricate channels connecting the buildings to circulate water, nutrients, enzymes, oxygen
and recyclable wastes. Their diverse inhabitants live in different microneighborhoods and
glide, motor or swim along roadways and canals. The more food is available, the denser the
populations become.

Researcher Bill Keevil in England, making videos of these cityscapes, says of one, "It looks

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 13 of 24

like Manhattan when you fly over it." Microbiologist Bill Costerton in Montana observes: "All
of a sudden, instead of individual organisms, you have communication, cell cooperation, cell
specialization, and a basic circulatory system, as in plants or animals ... It's a big intellectual
break." Researchers are coming to see colonial bacteria or even all bacteria now as
multicelled creatures despite their separate bodies.

In addition to rearranging Earth's crust, creating an atmosphere, devising urban lifestyles

and initiating the first worldwide web, bacteria invented other amazing technologies. Some
produced polyester, though biodegradable; others harnessed solar energy as
photosynthesis, permitting the making of food when it became scarce; still others invented
the electric motor for locomotion---a disk with flagellum attached, rotating in a magnetic field,
complete with ball bearings, not to mention the atomic pile, probably to raise local
temperatures. Seeing these startling parallels to human lifestyles and inventions makes us
see evolution fractally. In fact, when I fly over human cities, making them appear small, I see
them as cells spread over a substrate, or as bacterial colonies.

Some bacterial colonies, as we know, cause infections, diseases and deteriorate our teeth,
buildings and bridges. But most bacterial cooperatives are harmless or indeed cooperative
with other creatures, many living inside their guts, as in termites and cows, helping with
digestion. They maintain our worldwide habitats by renewing and chemically balancing the
atmosphere, seas and soils; they work for our health by the billions in our guts and have
evolved into the organelles inside our cells.

We use bacteria in our original biotechnologies of making cheese, yogurt, beer, wine, bread,
soy sauce and other foods. We harness them for newer biotechnologies to remove
contaminants from water in sewage treatment plants, to clean up our oil spills and other
pollution, to refine oil, to mine ores, and and even to make that biodegradable polyester they
were making long before we were. All our genetic engineering efforts depend on them as
they do much of the work of DNA recombination in our laboratories.

Most astonishing to investigators, communal bacteria turn on a different set of genes than
their genetically identical relatives roaming independently outside of biofilms. This gives the
urban dwellers a very different biochemical makeup. A special bacterial chemical,
homoserine lactone, signals incoming bacteria to turn into city dwellers. All bacteria
constantly discharge low levels of this chemical. Large concentrations of it in urban
environments trigger the urbanizing genetic changes, no matter what strain the bacteria are.

These changes include those that make bacteria most resistant to antibiotics. Costerton
estimates that more than ninety-nine percent of all bacteria live in biofilm communities and
finds that such communities, pooling their resources, can be up to 1,500 times more
resistant to antibiotics than a single colony. Under today's siege by antibiotics, bacteria
respond with ever-new genetic immunity. Our fifth generation of antibiotics failed in 1996.

Researcher Eshel Ben-Jacob also finds bacteria trading genes and discovers complex
interactions between individuals and their communities. The genomes of individuals--defined
as their full set of structural and regulatory genes--can and do alter their patterns in the
interests of the bacterial community as a whole. He observes that bacteria signal each other
chemically, calculate their own numbers in relation to food supplies, make decisions on how
to behave accordingly to maximize community wellbeing, and collectively change their
environments to their communal benefit.

Bacterial communities thus create complex genetic and behavioral patterns specific to
different environmental conditions. The genomes of individual bacteria alter their
composition, arrangement and which genes are turned on in response to changes in the

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 14 of 24

environment or communal circumstances. This important information is coming from various

research laboratories. Both Ben-Jacob and Costerton see individual bacteria gaining the
benefits of group living by putting group interests ahead of their own. Ben-Jacob concludes
that colonies form a kind of supermind genomic web of intelligent individual genomes. Such
webs are capable of creative responses to the environment that bring about "cooperative
self-improvement or cooperative evolution."

Einstein's worldview was shaken when some quantum physicists suggested that electrons
intentionally leap orbits. Microbiologists are beginning to see similar intentional activity at
systemic, cellular and molecular DNA levels. These discoveries of genomic changes in
response to an organism's environment, in the context of a holistic systems view of
evolution, are changing our story of how evolution proceeds in very significant ways. We are
discovering, in short, that the fundamental life forms from which all other organisms evolve
are capable of both self-organization in community and self-improvement through
environmental challenge.

Genomic changes in response to an organism's environment have actually been known

since the 1950s, but they challenged the accepted theories of the time, so it has taken half a
century to amass sufficient data to warrant changing our scientific picture of evolution

Barbara McClintock, who did much of her work on corn plants, pioneered this research
showing that DNA sequences move about to new locations and that this genetic activity
increases when the plants are stressed. She also found closed-loop molecular bits of self-
reproducing DNA called plasmids moving among the normal DNA and exchanged from cell
to cell. Plasmids were invented by ancient bacteria and persist in multicelled creatures. They
are used a great deal in genetic engineering as they can be inserted into new genomes.

McClintock's work on transposable genetic elements was verified and elaborated by many
researchers until it became clear that DNA reorganizes itself and trades genes with other
cells, even with other creatures. The trading process sometimes involves viruslike elements
known as transposons. Some are retrotransposons and retroviruses that transcribe their
RNA into DNA--opposite to the usual order and not thought possible before their discovery.
Some theorists now believe that bacteria may have invented viruses as well as plasmids.

Nobel Laureate biologists Phillip Sharp and Richard Roberts discovered that RNA is
arranged in modules that can be reshuffled by spliceosomes, referred to as a cell's "editors."
Other researchers have shown that bacteria naturally retool themselves genetically and can
correct defects created by human genetic engineers. Ancient bacteria had already evolved
the ability to repair genes damaged by UV radiation.

Further research shows that bacteria not only alter genomes very specifically in response to
environmental pressures, but also transfer the mutations to other bacteria. Many of these
genetic transfers appear to be evolutionarily related to "free-living" viruses, according to
Temin and Engels in England. Retroviruses are known to infect across species and enter
the host's germline DNA.

We are still in early stages of understanding the extent to which DNA is freely traded in the
world of microbes to benefit both individuals and their communities. And we are just
beginning to see these processes of genetic alteration at cellular levels as intelligent
responses to changing environmental conditions in multicelled creatures. We know viruses
and plasmids carry bits of DNA from whales to seagulls, from monkeys to cats, and so on,
but it remains to be understood whether all this transfer is random or meaningful.

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 15 of 24

Most research in this area is still confined to microbes in which these matters are easier to
study. As yet we do not know to what extent DNA trading occurs in creatures larger than
microbes, nor to what extent it facilitates specific responses to environmental conditions. For
that matter, we still do not know what the vast proportion of multicellular creature DNA does
at all. Depending on the particular plant or animal species, only between one and ten
percent (in humans) codes for proteins. The remaining ninety-odd percent remains a
mystery! So our stories are far from complete, but it seems reasonable to hazard the guess
that nature would not have evolved an evolutionary strategy as sophisticated as gene
trading to facilitate evolution billions of years ago only to abandon it in evolving larger

When we see that genomes respond to stress in many different species, from microbes to
plants and animals, with the changes passed on to succeeding generations, as Jeffrey
Pollard in England has reported, we are closer to the much discredited Lamarck than to
Darwin. Pollard tells us we are seeing "dramatic alterations of developmental plans
independent of natural selection," a situation that may itself may "play a minor role in
evolutionary change, perhaps honing up the fit between the organism and its environment."

This growing body of evidence suggests that evolution may proceed much faster under
stress than was thought possible. It also reveals how the worldwide web of DNA information
exchange invented by ancient bacteria still functions today, not only among bacteria as
always, but also within multicelled creatures and among species. As Lynn Margulis puts it:
"Evolution is no linear family tree, but change in the single multidimensional being that has
grown to cover the entire surface of Earth."

Margulis meant the multidimensional being of an interwoven biological network. But let's
look at this concept of multidimensional being in an even broader sense. Physicists
discovered an astounding interconnectivity and interdependence among all the particles of
our material universe, with each particle actually created by the others, much in the same
way as Buddhist monk Thich Nat Han tells us that a sheet of paper is everything that it is
not, showing us how we can trace the paper to its source in factory and forest, the workers
and woodcutters, their families and so on to all things interconnected.

Now biologists are showing us the same interconnectedness among bacteria and larger
organisms, in ecosystems and in the Earth as a whole living entity. Earth continually
recycles its matter into new organisms through the great recycling system of erupting
magma cooling into rock, transforming into creatures, eventually into sediment and back into
rock and molten magma as tectonic plates slide beneath each other and back into the
Earth's fiery depths below the continents.

My co-author Willis Harman once said, "If consciousness is anywhere in the universe, it
must be everywhere." The easiest way to understand this is to see that consciousness is a
fundamental property of the source of all being, as more and more physicists believe it to be.
This consciousness is a vital dimension of being, more fundamental than energy or matter.

I like to think of creaturehood as life music played on a keyboard, with consciousness or

spirit represented by the high keys, electromagnetic energy as the mid-range and matter as
the low keys. With this metaphor, we see that Einstein showed us how to transpose the
music of the mid-range to the low range and back, with his simple equation E = MC2. Now
we are seeking the key to transposing from the high keys into the world of matter via
electromagnetic energy, through the ZPE field, called the Plenum by the Greeks, the ether
by Europeans and the Implicate Order by physicist David Bohm. I participate in many
different discussion groups on this subject, mostly with other scientists, all of us asking: "If
consciousness is the source of creation, just how does it transmute into our measurable

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 16 of 24

electromagnetic energy? What are the properties of electromagnetic energy that we do not
yet understand? What keys lie in the ZPE range?"

I observed earlier that Western science is changing very rapidly now toward an
understanding of nature as alive, self-organizing, intelligent, conscious or sentient and
participatory at all levels. In this newer framework or cosmovision, biological evolution is
holistic, intelligent and purposeful. Notions such as entropy in a non-living universe, running
down to its death, no longer apply. Rather, we see a living universe with a metabolism like
that in our bodies, with its continual creation from the ZPE as anabolism, while entropy can
now be seen as catabolism--continual dissolution for purposes of recycling. In this version
entropy does not lead to the death of the universe because the universe is capable of
replenishing itself continuously.

Evolution from the perspective of linear time displays cycles that move ever upward,
reflecting the complex spiraling paths of planets, stars and galaxies. Each cycle begins with
some form of unity dividing into diversity, leading it to conflict, which then moves into
negotiations and resolution in a higher lever of cooperative unity.

The ancient bacteria diversified from the unity of a new planet's crustal mixture of elements,
moving them about as they invented new forms and lifestyles. They competed with each
other for resources as they caused major planetwide problems such as starvation and global
pollution. They invented new technologies to solve them, but also had to negotiate and learn
to cooperate in communities, finally in the ultimate symbiotic bacterial community which
became the first "multi-creatured cell"--the nucleated cell--a new unity at a higher level of

From this nucleated cell, new diversity emerged as many kinds of single cells competed,
negotiated and finally cooperated as multicelled creatures. From this new level of unity, all
other creatures diversified, competed and negotiated their way into harmonious ecosystems.
The best life insurance for any species in an ecosystem is to contribute usefully to sustaining
the lives of other species, a lesson we are only beginning to learn as humans.

Today we humans are repeating this process in amazing detail in what we have come to
recognize as globalization. Human history repeats evolutionary history, with all its problems
and technological solutions: diversification from the unity of the earliest human family, all the
old patterns of competition and negotiation played out in wars, conquests and assimilations
for the thousands of years in which we have built the empires of individual rulers, then of
nations and now of corporations. Finally, we recognize that we need a cooperative world--
unity at a higher level, a new multi-creatured cell the size of our entire planet. And gradually
we see that just as our beautifully evolved body cannot be healthy if any of its organs is ill,
so our global economy can thrive only if all local economies are healthy as well. Thus we
become concerned with the ecosystems we have damaged and with the economic
inequities we must solve.

How fascinating that just as we evolve this pattern of globalization in recognition of our need
for harmony with each other and other species, we simultaneously awaken to our "full
keyboard" selves, to our identity as spirit having a human experience, striving to understand
the ultimate unity from which we sprang! What ancient mystics and religious prophets and
saints taught is now becoming widespread. Thus, our new negotiations toward cooperation
are not only reflected in economic globalization and our own worldwide web--the Internet--
but in many efforts to globalize friendly conversation among the world's religions. In this
process we move from religious conflicts to cooperation, in part by recognizing that ultimate
unity, Cosmic Consciousness, is the source of all "God" concepts.

DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 17 of 24

The barriers between science and spirit are dissolving as scientists find Cosmic
Consciousness in a nonlocal, non-time energy field that transmutes itself into
electromagnetic energy, and, in turn, matter, in the creation of universes such as ours.
Presumably, it can also create itself (self-organize) into other pure energy patterns in myriad
ways--including angelic realms, for example, and all the "worlds" we may exist in between
lives, and eternally.

This Creative Source has been called "I Am" from the perspective of the local
consciousness in beings such as you and me, when we practice meditation to expand our
little consciousnesses into the Cosmic Consciousness of which they are part. In this state
we not only perceive union with God, we may even transcend our local selves such that we
recognize ourselves as God.

From a linear time perspective, our universe appears to be a learning universe. I like to say
its basic principle is "Anything that can happen, will happen," and so it learns what works
well and what doesn't. Evolution can thus be seen as an improvisational dance, keeping the
steps that work and changing those that don't. God-as-Cosmic-Consciousness becomes
Cosmic Consciousness transmuting into material universes. Perhaps we could say that in
this process even God learns to know the nature of Self by exploring all possible forms and
states of being and reflecting on those "selves," just as we, God's human reflections, learn to

Cosmic Consciousness, then, begins as Unity and divides into Complexity one stage at a
time as it embodies itself in such vast varieties of energetic and material forms as we see in
biological evolution, for example, from our human perspective of linear time. In its non-
timespace Source, which some physicists now identify as the more fundamental nature of
the universe, all these possibilities exist together in complexity inconceivable to us humans.

I believe each life comes with the freedom to choose a path through these endless
possibilities at myriad choice points along its way, just as every particle weaves its trajectory
through timespace. Every organism composed of and playing on its full keyboard from pure
consciousness to matter can be theoretically led in its development by its ultimate goal. The
acorn can know the oak tree it will become, as we can know the Higher Selves toward which
we evolve.

All nature is thus conscious in my worldview or cosmovision, and all of it has access to non-
timespace; all of it is an aspect of God. Only we humans of Western culture have played the
game of cutting ourselves off from the Great Conversation that our very cells can still hear! I
have come to believe, like many of my indigenous teachers, that soils, waters, organisms,
ecosystems, Earth, even DNA itself, all know themselves in relation to the whole play of
universal evolution as our cells know each other and our whole bodies in evolution,
behaving intelligently to maintain themselves and that whole. Only this way can I understand
how my own body, in its tremendous complexity, functions and preserves its health.

Perhaps God, through Western technological culture, is trying out the most dangerous game
of all--the game of truly forgetting our nature. A great risk, but it had to be done to try all
possibilities! It seems our human task now is to wake up and recognize ourselves as parts
or aspects of God-as-Nature and behave accordingly. All are One, all harm harms each of
us, all blessings bless each of us. What a guideline for choice!

Suppose we remind ourselves occasionally to see ourselves as the creative edge of God (a
phrase I learned from a dear friend)--as God looking out through our eyes, acting through
our hands, walking on our feet, in exploration of the new--and to observe how that changed
things for us. This is the scientific worldview as I see it when the barriers are removed,

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 18 of 24

expanding it to include the larger cosmovision traditionally relegated to religions. It is the

view that makes sense to me at this point in my lifetime of exploration. We have only our
stories to go by, and each must necessarily be at least somewhat, if not radically, different--
for God/Cosmic Consciousness has become very complex, though always based on eternal

I pray that all religions will recognize the importance of the uniqueness in each story and the
unity of All That Is. I pray that scientists, who have been given the role of "official" priesthood
with the mandate to tell us "how things are," will soon officially recognize that there is one
alive, intelligent universe in which spirit and matter are not separable and in which creation
is continuous. I pray the indigenous people who never separated science and spirituality will
be honored for that. It is time for the true communion which alone can save our species and
all others, which alone can bring about the perfectly possible world we all dream of--a world
expressing this understanding of ourselves as the creative edge of God!

Did You Know ... that according to bestselling author Gregg Braden in his latest book The
Divine Matrix: Bridging Time, Space, Miracles, and Belief, new findings in genetic science
are revolutionizing our worldview in unprecedented and empowering ways? Among these
findings, as explained by Braden, three stand out as truly paradigm-altering:

1) Human DNA has a direct effect on the stuff that our world is made of.

2) Human emotion has a direct effect on the DNA that affects the stuff our world is made of.

3) The relationship between emotions and DNA transcends the bounds of time and space.

3. Resetting the Bioenergy Blueprint via DNA

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 19 of 24

Sol Luckman
[Chapter 5 from Conscious Healing: Book One on the Regenetics Method]

After mapping the electromagnetic fields, Leigh and I realized we had to find a way to press
the "reset button" on this complex bioenergy blueprint. Coming from my NAET/BioSET
perspective, at first I thought we had to develop a technique to "clear" all the energies that
were somehow "blocked." Going back to the example of the third electromagnetic field
discussed in the previous chapter, I assumed that in order to begin addressing an
entrenched condition like cancer, one somehow had to remove the energetic "roadblock"
formed by radiation, fear-based emotions, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, etc.

It was at this stage I began to understand that the nervous system was never meant to
repattern the human bioenergy blueprint, that only DNA, our biocomputer, can build a new
energy body, and that therefore, some other method of initiating electromagnetic
repatterning besides acupressure stimulation of the meridian system had to be found.

We went to DNA because it was the obvious choice. DNA contains our genetic code and is
the master blueprint for our biology. It literally creates us through a protein-assembly
process known as transcription. In an article recently reprinted in DNA Monthly, Dr. Stephen
Lindsteadt offers the following excellent summary of genetic transcription that takes into
account both the biochemical and electromagnetic aspects of this life-creating process:

The cell's innermost center is composed of ribonucleic acid and proteins (all molecules). The antenna or
filament strand-like configuration of DNA allows the molecules to receive and transmit electromagnetic
frequency information along its nucleotide bases, creating resonance reactions in genetic nucleotide triplets
that create the template for the formation of messenger RNA (mRNA). Once mRNA has formed, it leaves the
cell nucleus and attaches to structures known as ribosomes. Using raw material from cells, ribosomes produce
proteins by following the sequence as instructed by mRNA. Proteins, in turn, go about their jobs inside or
outside cells based on the original instructions passed down from the electromagnetic coding from DNA to
RNA and finally to ribosomes. This process is known as transcription and provides the means for
electromagnetic frequency oscillations, the body's master conductor, to interact with the cell's command center
to instruct what notes to play, when, how loud, how long, etc., in order to maintain the precision and harmony
of the whole body's vibratory and cellular orchestra.

To transcribe can be defined as to copy in writing, to produce in written form, or to arrange

music for a different instrument. In other words, as the above quote suggests, we come into
being, at our molecular level, through a process with striking affinities to composition.

It is extremely interesting to consider the privileged place of song, storytelling and words in
creation myths. Anyone who has undertaken a comparative study of religions has probably
been struck by the universal role of sound and language in such myths. Genesis 1:3 relates,
"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light" (my emphasis). In the New Testament
John states, "In the beginning was the Word," an idea paralleled in the Vedas where we
read, "In the beginning was Brahman with whom was the Word."

The ancient Egyptians similarly believed that the god-men Thoth and Ra created life through
language, just as the Popul Vuh from the Mayan tradition insists that the first humans were
brought into existence by speech. Consistent with this language-based cosmology, the
healing tradition immortalized in the Bock Saga originating in Finland is based on
memorization and utterance of sacred sounds. This Saga, which Horowitz describes at
length in DNA: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral, is an elaboration of a time-honored oral
technology employing sound and light based on a "spiritual understanding of how to work
with 'nature orally'"--or "naturally."

"Here, in ancient mythology," writes Horowitz, "is the relationship between genesis, genetics,

http://potentiation.net/DNAmonthly/August07.html 26-6-2010
DNA MONTHLY August 2007 Page 20 of 24

and the spoken word. Also implied is the concept of wholistic health hinging on oral
functions." Horowitz points out that today's neurophysiologists have determined that fully
"one-third of the sensory-motor cortex of the brain is devoted to the tongue, oral cavity, the
lips, and speech. In other words, oral frequency emissions (i.e., bioacoustic tones) spoken,
or sung, exert powerful control over life, vibrating genes that influence total well-being and
even evolution of the species."

Since the start of the Human Genome Project and the chromosomal mapping of the human
genetic structure, there has been a tendency even in mainstream science to regard DNA as
the alphabet through which we are, essentially, written into existence. Another metaphor
often helpful in visualizing the somewhat complicated mechanism of genetic composition
derives from music. The building of our protein structure, of our cells that form our tissues
and organs, starts with RNA transcription of specific codes contained in DNA. We can
imagine RNA as a magnetic recording tape that "plays" data stored in DNA as a composition
of "notes" in the form of amino acids that create bars of "music" called proteins.

Leigh and I realized that if we were to activate what we saw as an extraordinary latent
potential in DNA, one perhaps capable of transforming both consciousness and physiology
we intuited along with a growing number of scientists including Lindsteadt, Horowitz, Gregg
Braden and Bruce Lipton, we had to find or develop a way to access DNA without
laboratories or test tubes. But how do you do that? How do you activate DNA without
physically manipulating it?


At this stage we were fortunate enough to be given a copy of The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and
the Origins of Knowledge, by French anthropologist Jeremy Narby. Dr. Narby spent years
studying the healing techniques of shamans (medicine men) in the Amazon. His account,
anthropologically as well as scientifically, is riveting and was particularly helpful in
developing the Regenetics Method. In one telling passage, Narby writes, "DNA is not merely
an informational molecule, but … also a form of text and therefore … is best understood by
analytical ways of thinking commonly applied to other forms of text. For example, books."

Coming from my background in fiction writing and literary theory, this way of looking at DNA
as a book was extremely appealing. More than anything, it just made sense. Narby is clearly
saying we can learn to read DNA. By implication, he is suggesting we can also learn to
write, or rewrite, the genetic code. This is how I can speak, in all seriousness, of "textual

An alternative way to conceptualize what I am calling "rewriting" is to imagine that DNA

contains a subtext resembling a series of footnotes that can be scrolled up onscreen. In this
scenario, no rewriting or reprogramming is required. The program for our new and improved
energy body already exists in what mainstream science has dismissed as "junk" DNA.

Most geneticists have admitted they have no idea why over ninety percent of our DNA even
exists. This is especially provocative given that over ninety percent of our brain is also
unused. Most of DNA appears to be nonsense. A lot of it is in the form of palindromes,
puzzling sentences that read the same forward and backward. "Junk" DNA consists
primarily of "introns," considered noncoding genetic sequences, as opposed to "exons" that
have an identifiable coding function in building our protein structures through RNA
transcription. In other words, as shown in [the figure below], exons clearly do something,
while introns supposedly do not.

The Ener-genetic Composition Process: The above diagram illustrates how body building is both genetic,
involving RNA transcription of DNA codes to create cells, and energetic, dependent on the interface between
the electromagnetic fields and "junk" or potential DNA for regulation of cellular composition. This diagram also
shows how potential DNA's transposons can be directly prompted by consciousness, internal (personal) and
external (universal), to modify cellular replication.

Fortunately, some who have asked how nature could be so inefficient are beginning to
rethink this dogma that ultimately raises more questions than it answers. Recent research
has shed light on intense "epigenetic" or alternative genetic activity in "junk" DNA, which
appears to have much more to do with creating a specific species than previously thought.
For example, if we only look at the small portion of DNA composed of exons, there is very
little difference, genetically speaking, between a human being and a fruit fly! There is also
practically nothing at the level of exons that distinguishes one human being from another.

Others who have studied the mystery of "junk" DNA have concluded the as little as three
percent of the human genome directly responsible for protein transcription simply does not
contain enough information to build any kind of body. Faced with this mystifying scenario,
more and more scientists are paying attention to curious structures called "jumping DNA" or
"transposons" found in the supposedly useless ninety-seven percent of the DNA molecule.
In 1983 Barbara McClintock was awarded the Nobel prize for discovering transposons. She
and fellow biologists coined the term jumping DNA for good reason, notes renowned psychic
and scientific researcher David Wilcock, as "these one million different proteins can break
loose from one area, move to another area, and thereby rewrite the DNA code."

Clearly, "junk" DNA was prematurely dismissed. In an article entitled "Genetics Beyond
Genes" in the November 2003 issue of Scientific American, Dr. John Mattick, director of the
Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Brisbane, is quoted as saying that the
failure to recognize the importance of introns (to say nothing of transposons) in "junk" DNA
"may well go down as one of the biggest mistakes in the history of molecular biology." Leigh

and I propose we rename "junk" DNA potential DNA and understand it as the human
organism's ener-genetic interface with a higher-dimensional "life-wave" responsible for
giving rise to a particular physical form through RNA transcription of DNA codes. We will
return to this critically important idea a bit later.

DNA, whether coding or noncoding, whether exons, introns or transposons, is composed of

an "alphabet" of four basic "letters" called nucleotides that combine to form sixty-four
different "words" used to build a virtually limitless number of "sentences" called genes. The
number 64 is especially interesting given another of our inspirations, J. J. Hurtak's The Keys
of Enoch. The Keys of Enoch is an elaboration of the "keys" for creating a higher energy
body. Significantly, there are sixty-four keys, just as there are sixty-four nucleotide
combinations. Hurtak is clearly writing about actualizing a transformational potential in our

I realize this is a lot of information, especially for the lay reader, for whom I have endeavored
to simplify this material as much as possible. As these concepts are among some of the
most life-changing I have personally encountered in my research, I encourage you to go
over this chapter and any others that seem complicated as many times as necessary until
the ideas sink in. To summarize to this point, it is accurate to say that DNA is a form of text
with its own alphabet, and that we can learn to read as well as rewrite DNA, in the process
activating the genetic program designed to turn our introns into exons (via transposons) and
create new protein transcription sequences that lead to regeneration, or re-gene-ration.
