The Biology of Belief Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles

By Bruce H. Lipton, PH.D

The Evolution of the Study of Evolution

Since Watson and Crick revealed DNAs double helix structure to be the hereditary factor hypothesized by Darwin the Central Do!"a of the study of biolo!y has been that !enes are predo"inantly responsible for our physical characteristics our health and even our e"otion and behaviors# $he concept of Survival of the fittest has e"phasized co"petition between or!anis"s over cooperation althou!h both survival strate!ies can be observed in the natural world# Different ele"ents of nature are in a delicate dyna"ic balance with each other and with the environ"ent# %ar"ony is everywhere in nature# $he field of biolo!y has e"phasized the co"petitive nature of survival and ne!lected the i"portance of cooperation#

The Magic of Cells and the New Biology

Cells are co"plex s"art entities that can survive on their own# Cells analyze infor"ation fro" the environ"ent and select appropriate responses# Cells are capable of learnin! &called cell "e"ory' and can pass infor"ation on to their offsprin!# $he structure and function of cells are inti"ately intertwined# Cells hold the key to understandin! the "echanis" as well as the "eanin! of life# An individual can be seen as a !roup of () trillion sin!le*celled citizens workin! to!ether sharin! one a"oebic consciousness# Cell co""unities are role "odels for !roups of individuals# +n contrast to the Central Do!"a which tends to view individuals as controlled by their !enes and in constant stru!!le with each other for survival the New ,iolo!y sees life as a cooperative -ourney of powerful individuals who can pro!ra" the"selves to create -oy*filled lives# $he fully conscious "ind can tru"p nature &!enes' and nurture &environ"ental pro!ra""in!'#

What Can We Learn from Cells?

%u"ans are "ade of cells so it follows that we "ust share so"e basic behavioral patterns with the"# $he structures within cells called or!anelles are the functional e.uivalents of the tissues and or!ans with hu"an bodies# $he first life for" on earth was a sin!le cell# /ulticellular life*for"s were ori!inally loose colonies of tens of thousands of sin!lecelled or!anis"s# ,ecause increased awareness of the environ"ent results in increased survival capacity and "ore cells "eans "ore awareness the evolutionary advanta!e of co"binin! led to colonies of "illions to trillions of interactive cells# As co"plex "ulticellular or!anis"s evolved it proved "ore efficient for the cells to differentiate "eanin! individual cells took over specific tasks# 0ver ti"e this pattern of differentiation beca"e e"bedded in the !enes of every cell in the co""unity of cells which increased its overall efficiency and ability to survive# %u"an or!anizations

Was Lamarck


1ifty years before Darwin published his theory of evolution based on the concepts of stru!!le and violence 2ean*,aptiste 3a"arck presented a theory of evolution based on instructive cooperative interaction a"on! or!anis"s and their everchan!in! environ"ent# %e proposed that or!anis"s ac.uire adaptations necessary for survival and pass the" on to their offsprin!# $his idea that or!anis"s can pass on their adaptations has lon! been dis"issed as incorrect but today 3a"arcks theories are bein! reevaluated based on new findin!s in cell biolo!y# %is e"phasis on cooperation over co"petition is also receivin! a fresh look with the increased awareness that cooperation plays an invaluable role in the survival of the biosphere and in li!ht of the "any sy"biotic relationships that are observed in nature# 4ecently it has been found that !enes can even be shared across species throu!h !ene transfer# $his process speeds up evolution by allowin! species to pass on their cell "e"ories to other species and is a !ood exa"ple of the i"portant role cooperation can play in the survival of a co""unity of species#

!uick "verview of Cell Biology

Cells are an asse"bly of protein buildin! blocks# $he hu"an body co"prises over 5)) ))) proteins# 6ach protein is a linear strin! of linked a"ino acid "olecules si"ilar to a pop bead necklace# 7eptide bonds between a"ino acids in the protein backbone can adopt different contours# 8 factors deter"ine the contour of a protein9 5# the physical pattern defined by the se.uence of differently shaped a"ino acids 8# the interaction of electro"a!netic char!es a"on! the linked a"ino acids $he final confor"ation of a protein "olecule reflects a balanced state a"on! its char!es# +f a proteins positive and ne!ative char!es are altered the backbone will twist to ad-ust to the new distribution# $here are three ways in which the distribution of electro"a!netic char!es can be altered9 5# bindin! of other "olecules such as hor"ones 8# enzy"atic re"oval or addition of char!ed ions :# interference fro" electro"a!netic fields &e#!# fro" cell phones' 7roteins bind to!ether when they are physical and ener!etic co"ple"ents interlockin! like !ears that fit to!ether# $he constant shape*shiftin! "ove"ents of proteins are the "ove"ents that propel life#

oots of #enetic $eterminism

When two strands of double helix unwind each strand can "ake an exact co"ple"entary copy of itself# $herefore DNA "olecules are self*replicatin! and were assu"ed to be able to control their own replication# $his supposed capability co"bined with its role as blueprint for the bodys proteins led DNA to be seen as the pri"ary deter"inant of an or!anis"s traits# DNA beca"e the star of the show and the A!e of ;enetic Deter"inis" was born#

Beyond #enes
$he one !ene*one protein theory prevailed until the %u"an ;eno"e pro-ect found far too few !enes &8( )))' to account for all the proteins found in the hu"an body &5)) )))'# $he hu"an body contains only 5()) "ore !enes than a spineless "icroscopic wor"# Sin!le*!ene disorders affect less than 8< of the population# Diseases such as cancer heart disease and diabetes are the result of co"plex interactions a"on! "ultiple !enes and environ"ental factors# $here are not enou!h !enes to account for the co"plexity of hu"an life or of hu"an disease# /ost diseases are linked to !enes= !enes are not the sole cause# ;enes are not self*e"er!ent9 they cannot turn the"selves on and off # ;enes do not have the ability to control life because they are dependent upon environ"ental tri!!ers to deter"ine when and how they will be expressed# 6pi!enetics is the study of the "olecular "echanis"s by which environ"ent controls !ene activity#

%indings of E&igenetics' #enes are not $estiny

DNA blueprints are not set in stone at birth# 1actors such as stress nutrition and e"otions can "odify !enes without chan!in! the basic blueprint# Studies of protein synthesis reveal that epi!enetic factors can create 8))) or "ore variations of proteins fro" the sa"e !ene blueprint# $hese "odifications fro" environ"ental causes can be passed on to future !enerations# 7roteins are turnin! out to play as crucial a role in heredity as DNA# $he flow of infor"ation in the current understandin! of biolo!y starts with an environ"ental si!nal then !oes to a re!ulatory protein and only then !oes to DNA 4NA and finally a protein is coded# $his is opposite of the previous assu"ption in which DNA was the driver# +t is now clear that two "echanis"s exist for passin! on hereditary infor"ation9 5# !enes &nature' 8# epi!enetic "echanis"s &nurture'

E&igenetics and $isease

6pi!enetic "echanis"s have been found to be a factor in "any diseases includin! cancer cardiovascular disease and diabetes# 0nly (< of cancer and cardiovascular patients can attribute their disease to heredity# 6pi!enetic alterations not defective !enes result in "any cancer cases#

The Magical Mem(rane ) The True **Brain++ of the Cell

$he nucleus has lon! been thou!ht to be the brain of the cell however it has been found that after enucleation &re"oval of the nucleus' cells continue to survive and en!a!e in all nor"al functions of a cell except dividin! and reproducin! protein parts# $herefore the nucleus cannot be the central infor"ation processor as it is not necessary for the cell to function nor"ally and respond to its environ"ent# +f the nucleus is not the brain then what part of the cell fills the role of infor"ation processor and deter"ines how to respond to the environ"ent> $he cell "e"brane holds the "echanis"s by which the body translates environ"ental si!nals into behavior# $he i"portance of the "e"brane has been underesti"ated by science because it is so thin that until the develop"ent of the electron "icroscope in the 5?()s its existence could not even be confir"ed# +t is now known that if the "e"brane of a cell is destroyed the cell dies# $he three*layer structure of the "e"brane can be thou!ht of as a bread and butter sandwich usin! the followin! analo!y9 +f dye were to be added to the top of the sandwich it would seep throu!h the bread but stop at the butter because of the oily substance would act as a barrier Now two kinds of olives are added to the sandwich one with pi"entos &stuffed' and the other without &unstuffed' +f dye were added now and the sandwich were sliced in half we would see that the dye stops when it hits the stuffed olives ,ut the unstuffed olives would provide a channel throu!h which the dye could flow throu!h the buttery layer to reach the other side of the "e"brane sandwich +n this analo!y the bread and butter to!ether represent the phospholipids which contain polar "olecules &the bread' and non*polar "olecules &the butter layer'# $he olives are proteins called +nte!ral /e"brane 7roteins &+/7s' which allow nutrients waste "aterials and other for"s of infor"ation to be transported across the "e"brane# +/7s act as a sti"ulus*response tea" and can be divided into two !roups9 @ 4eceptor &sensory' proteins which "onitor the environ"ent both inside and outside the cell @ 6ffector &action*!eneratin!' proteins which respond to the environ"ent si!nals $o!ether the receptor and effector proteins act as a switch which translates environ"ental si!nals into cellular behavior &referred to as si!nal transduction' 4eceptor proteins can read ener!y fields su!!estin! the possibility of future phar"aceutical*free "edical treat"ent All effector proteins when activated can serve as si!nals that activate !enes
