The Discovery of DNA Variability, Holographic Blueprints and the
Symphony of Life

nnounced with great fanfare in late November,
2006, scientists have discovered that human DNA is far more
variable than previously thought. Contrary to previous beliefs,
as much as 10 percent of human genes vary wildly from one person
to the next. The mainstream press is hailing the discovery and
some sort of breakthrough that will shed light on so-called
"incurable" diseases and give researchers the ability to create
more targeted medicines. (There's always a pro-Pharma slant in
the mainstream media isn't there?) In reality, this new DNA
discovery explains why most pharmaceuticals don't work for most
More importantly, this discovery humbles us,
and shows us that even our top scientists know less about human
DNA than they once thought. Researching DNA is a lot like
researching astronomy: the more we learn, the less we realize we
know. It's as if every newly discovered fact unveils the
existence of ten new questions we never knew existed.
The mainstream media, in its usual limited
view, is reporting this discovery as a breakthrough that will
help scientists develop new drugs to treat disease. Every
"Eureka!" moment having anything to do with the genetic code
seems to lead the mainstream media to the same
advertiser-pleasing conclusion, but they haven't even begun
to realize the big story here. The real news in this
discovery, you see, has nothing to do with pharmaceuticals or
even medical science. It is larger and more profound than any of
us could have possibly imagined.
Allow me to explain...
Where are all the missing
Until today, it was widely believed that
individual genes directly controlled physical traits in the
human body (and even mental and behavioral traits, according to
some), but now it turns out that a surprisingly large number of
individuals have wild variations in their genetic code, such as
multiple copies of the same gene or even entire genes that are
missing from their DNA. And yet they're not walking around
without a kidney, for example, or missing their left eyeball.
It's all quite shocking and rather difficult
to explain from a Western point of view where scientists believe
that DNA is like a computer program containing sequential
instructions for building a physical organism. Truth is,
there aren't enough genes in the human genome to even build a
human being in the first place. A human has about 30,000
genes, yet an adult human has trillions of specialized cells
governed by millions of different chemical reactions. How do
30,000 genes control all this?
Only a few years ago (2001), humans were
believed to have 100,000 genes while all simple life forms
contained far fewer. But this assumption of humans being some
"advanced" life form turned out to be utterly false. It turns
out that the mustard weed contains the same number of genes as
humans, and even the common mouse has nearly as many. From
certain types of worms to common trees, there are many organisms
on the planet that have very nearly the same number of genes as
human beings (and some have more).
Even more surprising to most, human beings
appear to actually be human-bacteria hybrids. We are not
all human, in other words. At least 200 genes in our genetic
code were mysteriously borrowed from bacteria, we now know.
Nobody is sure how they got there (did early humans mate with
bacteria? Odd...), but we are sure that they exist.
Furthermore, if you look at the composition
of cells in the typical human body, and you start counting them
all, you realize that most of the cells in the typical human
body are not human. Read that again, if you need to. It's a
shocking statement, but it's entirely true. The vast majority of
cells contained in the human body are bacteria cells -- about
100 trillion of them for a typical human being.
In other words, when you walk around, most of
the cells you're carrying with you are not even you. The
importance of this is in understanding that the human organism
does not exist in isolation to the world around it. Regardless
of what we believe, we are all closer to nature than we think.
In fact, we are literally living with nature inside us,
permeating our cells and accounting for more of us than us
There's also no mention of epigenetics in all
this news about the human genome. As recently understood -- to
the great surprise of the hard science community, no doubt --
epigenetic factors control the expression of genes,
activating or deactivating them based on environmental factors
such as nutrition or exposure to synthetic chemicals.
Epigenetic factors are inherited, too, and
passed from one generation to the next, meaning that if one
woman suffers from chronic nutritional deficiencies when she
conceives a child, the detrimental side effects of that
nutritional deficiency will be passed down through multiple
generations (at least four generations, according to Pottenger,
but perhaps as many as seven according to others).
So DNA is not the only archive of information
that's passed from mother to child. Even if we understood
everything about DNA, we would still lack the big picture unless
we also understood epigenetic factors -- and most old-school
researchers and Western scientists don't even believe in
epigenetic factors, adhering to the outdated point of view that
genes alone control everything, and that all disease is
predetermined, with environmental factors having little or no
The human genome reflects the
patterns of nature
Most Western scientists currently believe the
human genome is sort of like a biological computer program; a
series of instructions that tells the cells how to construct a
complete organism containing trillions of new cells. Of course,
there's no real explanation as to how a mere 30,000 genes could
oversee the construction, maintenance and operation of such a
highly complex organism. As Francis Collins, director of the
National Human Genome Research Institute, said, "It's astounding
that we get by with so few protein-coding genes, but that seems
to be sufficient because here we all are." It's hard to argue
with logic like that.
Indeed, it does work. But not in the way
Western scientists believe. My own personal theory of the human
genome takes special note of the multiple copies of many genes
that have now been observed across a wide spectrum of the human
population. Some people carry one, two, three or even four
copies of the same gene.
If you look around in nature, where else do
you notice copies of the same information? In harmonics, of
course. A complex sound such as a single note on a violin is
not made up of a simple square wave tone, it's made up of highly
complex harmonics which give the violin its own tone and timbre,
a sort of auditory personality. On an oscilloscope, these
often appear as copies of the same underlying waveforms.
They're also called "overtones," and they're
present throughout the human experience. Simple saying the word,
"we," for example, involves shaping the mouth and tongue into an
arrangement that creates complex, high-frequency overtones. The
"ee" sound is the highest multi-frequency overtone sound created
in human speech, but every vowel sound has its own unique
pattern of repeating information. From low to high, it's "uuu" "ooo"
"aaah" "eh" "eee."
Physically, a human being is more like
musical expression than a set of construction blueprints. The
human body has near-perfect symmetry and economies of expression
through fractal geometry that are quite evident in the structure
of the circulatory system, for example, or the nervous system.
Just look at a drawing of veins and arteries and you'll notice
the fractal patterns of geometry -- the same patterns you'll see
drawn in the underside of a leaf, by the way.
The same is also true with human hair and
skin cells. Every police detective knows that the human
fingerprint is made up of readily identifiable patterns that are
connected through a sort of biological artistry. In any human
fingerprint, you'll notice the loops, swishes and curves that
give strong clues to the underlying fractal geometry.
Fingerprints aren't built with cellular bricks, they're built
with repeating patterns that give us strong clues about the
true structure of our DNA.
(Fractal geometry is also the dominant form
of physical structure in nature, by the way. In fact, it was the
study of plant leaves and mollusk shells that led to the
discovery of fractal geometry.)
Throughout the human body, from the lining of
the cells of the stomach to the structure of the eye, you find
patterns that go way beyond mere construction blueprints. The
human body is a symphony, a grand musical masterpiece played
out in billions of variations across the planet.
And the DNA, in my view, is a holographic
reflection of the whole being. The repeating patterns of genes
and the symmetry of the double helix are all expressions of
music. The human genome is a symphony, and it is through this
symphony that we play the music of life. Combined with
environmental factors and energetic factors (such as parental
love), the symphony of human DNA creates a physical being. But
it doesn't stop there. It also helps create the framework for an
emotional being, an energetic being and a spiritual being.
Some scientists see nothing but cold, hard
construction blueprints in that DNA. Others see God in the
symphony, or Mother Nature directing the orchestra. What I see
is a miracle of life, created with such masterful poetry and
music that it is something to behold, to honor and to be humbled
by. It is the ultimate statement of our connection to nature,
for everywhere you look in nature, you see the same patterns we
express, carried out in a range of melodies through the plants,
animals and even the waters and skies. Looking closely at
ourselves, we cannot help but notice nature. If we are keen
observers, that is.
Western scientists refuse to
hear the music
For Western scientists to think they've
figured out the Human Genome, and that they can now use it to
design new synthetic drugs that hijack the biochemical orchestra
of the human body, is the epitome of medical arrogance. They
refuse to recognize the miracle of human life, believing instead
in the superiority of Man over nature. They would destroy a
thousand symphonies to sell another million dollars worth of
pharmaceuticals. Every day, they pad their fragile egos with
"heroic" surgical procedures and organ transplants that grind
the orchestra to a halt.
They are the music stoppers, the nature
deniers... the rationalists. They believe all things are
compartmentalized and separated. There is no connection between
living things, according to the rationalists, and living
creatures are nothing more than players in some cruel game
called survival of the fittest.
But I say we are all unique, creative
expressions of the same universal tune. Even our very blueprint
-- our DNA -- is a symphony of expression that will never be
understood until researchers start to think holographically
rather than sequentially. DNA is a wonderful mystery, as is any
good symphony, or novel, or collection of poetry. And just as a
novel is more than the sum of its words, a human being is more
than the accounting of her DNA. Let me give you a simple example
to make this all more apparent.
In the paragraph below, each word represents
a gene. What is this paragraph trying to say?
a, a, a, above, air, all, almost, alone,
and, and, and, anywhere, as, breadth, brought, by, cluster,
color, combining, crate, crooked, dropped, evening, fine,
first-water, follow, freedom, from, glossy, greater, hair, hazy,
i, i, image, in, in, in, in, it, it, it, it, it, i've, i've,
i've, jewel, later, little, luster, might, moon, moon, new, of,
of, of, of, on, one, one, or, ornament, over, please, pulled,
put, run, seen, shining, shining, slowly, some, sorts, start,
the, the, the, the, the, the, tilted, tree-and-farmhouse, trees,
tried, tried, try, walking, wallow, water, with, with, wonder,
Presented as such, it seems to be nonsense,
right? This is the Western view of the human genome, where each
"word" (or gene) stands on its own, existing in some isolated
way for the purpose of governing the construction of some
correlated physical structure. Western scientists even use the
term, "words" to describe genes, and they describe the variation
in the protein sequences as different "spellings" of those
words. Yet they completely miss the grammar of those
words: the music, the poetry, the linguistics.
So let's take those same words (genes) and
rearrange them to create music. Or poetry, as it were, thanks to
The Freedom of the Moon
I've tried the new moon tilted in
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster
As you might try a jewel in your hair.
I've tried it fine with little breadth of luster,
Alone, or in one ornament combining
With one first-water start almost shining.
I put it shining anywhere I
By walking slowly on some evening later,
I've pulled it from a crate of crooked trees,
And brought it over glossy water, greater,
And dropped it in, and seen the image wallow,
The color run, all sorts of wonder follow.
Do you see the difference? They are the same
words as the nonsense paragraph shown earlier, but now suddenly
the words create something far more complex and intelligent
than the sum of their parts. Through the arrangement of the
words, or the symphony of words, Robert Frost takes us on a
journey that touches on the human experience, our relationship
with nature and the meaning of life itself. All this has been
brought forth by a set of words that seemed meaningless when
read in isolated, absent the context of their interrelationships
(or holographic relationships).
DNA is poetry, you see. And as long as
Western scientists continue to look at genes in isolation, they
will only see a scramble of isolated words whose meaning remains
forever elusive. But genuine, curious scientists who are true
enough to their own hearts to take a leap of faith at believing
in the symphony of nature will find something far different in
human DNA. They will find poetry, symmetry, harmonics... and a
song of life that, if truly understood, would humble even the
most brilliant among us.
You see, this year's discovery of widespread
variability in the genetic code -- and gene copies, and missing
genes -- is not something to be viewed as a way to sell more
drugs. That view is childish. It is insulting to nature herself.
This discovery is far more profound. It gives us an important
clue that can help humankind remember where it came from. It
reminds us that we are part of nature, not its conquerors or
masters. We are, in fact, an expression of the very phenomena we
are attempting to understand, and if we read the poetry of DNA
correctly, we will realize that life itself is not about the
accumulation of wealth, or stuff, or power over others, but
rather the discovery of self.
And "self" does not exist in isolation. We
are, in every way imaginable, intertwined. We are all made of
the same stuff, wrought from the same patterns of nature, and in
fact, formulated from the same musical notes played out in five
billion unique but compatible tunes. With this discovery,
Western science has concluded we are all more different from
each other than previously thought, but I believe it is evidence
that we are all just unique verses of the same universal poem.
