The common idea that DNA determines so much of who we are — not only our eye or hair color, for example, but also our addictions, disorders, or susceptibility to cancer — is a misconception. This concept “says you are less powerful than your genes.”

The problem with that belief system is that it extends to another level … You find yourself to be more or less a victim of your heredity. You become irresponsible. You say, “I can’t do anything about it, so why try?”

In reality, a person’s perception, not genetic programming, is what spurs all action in the body. It is actually our beliefs that select our genes, that select our behavior.

The human body is comprised of 50 to 65 trillion cells. Cell functions independent of DNA and its perceptions of environmental stimuli affect DNA. This also applies the same principles to the human body as a whole, showing the power our perceptions, our beliefs, have over DNA.

5-Step Explanation

1.The cell is like a human body and it functions without DNA

The cell is like a human body. It is capable of respiration, digestion, reproduction, and other life functions. The nucleus, which contains the genes, has traditionally been viewed as the control center — the brain of the cell.

Yet, when the nucleus is removed, the cell continues with all of its life functions and it can still recognize toxins and nutrients. It appears the nucleus — and the DNA it contains — does not control the cell.

Scientists assumed some 50 years ago that genes control biology. It just seemed so correct, we bought the story. We don’t have the right assumptions.

2. DNA is controlled by the environment

Proteins carry out the functions in cells and they are building blocks of life. It has long been thought that DNA controls or determines the actions of proteins.

Here I propose a different model. Environmental stimuli that come into contact with the cell membrane are perceived by receptor proteins in the membrane. This sets off a chain reaction of proteins passing on what could be described as messages to other proteins, motivating action in the cell.

DNA is coated in a protective sleeve of protein. The environmental signals act on that protein, causing it to open up and to select certain genes for use — genes specifically needed to react to the current environment.

Basically, DNA is not the beginning of the chain reaction. Instead, the cell membrane’s perception of the environment is the first step.

If there are no perceptions, the DNA is inactive.

Genes can’t turn themselves on or off … they can’t control themselves. If a cell is cut off from any environmental stimuli, it doesn’t do anything. Life is due to how the cell responds to the environment.

3. Perception of the environment is not necessarily the reality of the environment

In a 1988 study done by John Cairns, published in the journal Nature titled “The Origin of Mutants,” he showed that mutations in DNA were not random, but happened in a predetermined way in response to environmental stresses.

In every one of your cells, you have genes whose function it is to rewrite and adapt genes as necessary. In a chart illustrating Cairns findings in the journal, environmental signals were shown to be separate from the organism’s perception of environmental signals.

A being’s perception of the environment acts as a filter between the reality of the environment and the biological reaction to it.

Perception rewrites genes!

4. Human beliefs, choosing to perceive a positive or negative environment

Just as a cell has receptor proteins to perceive the environment outside the cell membrane, humans have the five senses.

These are what help a person determine which genes need to be activated for a given situation.

The genes are like programs on a computer disk. These programs can be divided into two classes: the first relates to growth, or reproduction; the second relates to protection.

When a cell encounters nutrients, the growth genes are activated and used. When a cell encounters toxins, the protection genes are activated and used.

When a human being encounters love, the growth genes are activated. When a human being encounters fear, the protection genes are activated.

A person may perceive a negative environment where there is actually a supportive or positive environment. When this negative perception activates the protection genes, the body’s response is the programmed “fight or flight.”

5. ‘Fight or Flight’

Blood flow is directed away from the vital organs to the limbs, which are used for fighting and running. The immune system becomes of lesser importance. If you picture the responses we once needed for running from a lion, for example, the legs would have been infinitely more important in that immediate situation than the immune system. Thus, the body favors the legs and neglects the immune system.

So, when a person perceives a negative environment, the body tends to neglect the immune system and vital organs. Stress also makes us less intelligent, less clear-minded. The part of the brain related to reflexes is given more prominence in fight or flight mode than the part related to memory and other mental functions.

When a person perceives a loving environment, the body activates growth genes and nurtures the body.

For example, in Eastern European orphanages where children are given lots of nutrients, but little love these types of institutions have found to have stunted development in terms of height, learning, and other areas. There is also a high incidence of autism. Autism in this case is a symptom of protection genes being activated, like walls being put up.

Beliefs act as a filter between the real environment and your biology. Thus, people have the power to change their biology. It is important to keep a clear perception because otherwise you won’t develop the right things biologically for the real environment around you.

You are not victims of genes. What beliefs are you choosing for your genes to be expressed?

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.

Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy, studies employing cloned human stem cells, focused upon the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. An experimental tissue transplantation technique developed by Dr. Lipton and colleague Dr. Ed Schultz and published in the journal Science was subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering.

In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have since validated his concepts and ideas.

Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced.

Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is currently a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He lectures to conventional and complementary medical professionals and lay audiences about leading-edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He has been heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds of former audience members who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well being by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr Lipton’s work summarizing his findings, entitled The Biology of Belief, (Hay House Publishing, 202 pages, $25, hardcover, ISBN 978-1-4019-2311-2). His new book, Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, (Hay House Publishing, ISBN 978-1-4019-2580-2) is available now.

This new updated and expanded 10th anniversary edition of The Biology of Belief will forever change how you think about your own thinking. Stunning new scientific discoveries about the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning show that all the cells of your body are affected by your thoughts.

It has been ten years since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton’s seminal book on the relationship between mind and body that changed the way we think about our lives, our health, and our planet. During that time, research in this field has grown exponentially —Lipton’s groundbreaking experiments have now been endorsed by more than a decade of rigorous scientific study.

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., a renowned cell biologist, describes the precise molecular pathways through which this occurs. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter, and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

In this greatly expanded edition, Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist, explores his own experiments and those of other leading-edge scientists that have unraveled in ever greater detail how truly connected the mind, body, and spirit are. It is now widely recognized that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, they are controlled by signals from outside the cell, including energetic messages emanating from our thoughts.

This profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics puts the power to create a healthy, joyous life back in our own hands. When we transform our conscious and subconscious thoughts, we transform our lives, and in the process help humanity evolve to a new level of understanding and peace.

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., a pioneer in the new biology, is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. A cell biologist by training, Bruce was on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed groundbreaking stem-cell research at Stanford University.

The power of belief has profound effects on our behavior and genetic expression. Research in the field of Behavioral Epigenetics provides insight into how we can become empowered, and rise to the level of being master of our lives. Angelina Jolie’s recent public disclosure of her double mastectomy raises concern about the methods through which we choose to heal.

The Honeymoon Effect: A state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love. Your life is so beautiful that you can’t wait to get up to start a new day and you thank the Universe that you are alive. Think back on the most spectacular love affair of your life—the Big One that toppled you head over heels. For most, it was a time of heartfelt bliss, robust health, and abundant energy. Life was so beautiful that you couldn’t wait to bound out of bed in the morning to experience more Heaven on Earth. It was the Honeymoon Effect that was to last forever. Unfortunately for most, the Honeymoon Effect is frequently short-lived. Imagine what your planetary experience would be like if you could maintain the Honeymoon Effect throughout your whole life.

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, describes how the Honeymoon Effect was not a chance event or a coincidence, but a personal creation. This book reveals how we manifest the Honeymoon Effect and the reasons why we lose it. This knowledge empowers readers to create the honeymoon experience again, this time in a way that ensures a happily-ever-after relationship that even a Hollywood producer would love. With authority, eloquence, and an easy-to-read style, Lipton covers the influence of quantum physics (good vibrations), biochemistry (love potions), and psychology (the conscious and subconscious minds) in creating and sustaining juicy loving relationships. He also asserts that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in every healthy human body as a model, we can create not just honeymoon relationships for couples but also a “super organism” called humanity that can heal our planet.

The Honeymoon Effect – The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth

Can you look back and remember a time when you feel head-over-heels in love with somebody and ask yourself this question: Were you healthy? Unlocking the subconscious mind to reprogram beliefs is crucial in maintaining the experience of love. The Honeymoon Effect is about the biology and psychology of creating healthy relationships.

Bruce Lipton ‘ The Power Of Consciousness’ Interview by Iain
McNay

My book The Biology of Belief provided insight into the nature of how our consciousness controls both our genetics and our behavior. Although programmed to believe ourselves frail and vulnerable, we are learning instead that the power of healing has always been within us, for not only do our personal beliefs affect our personal lives but our collective beliefs physically manifest our collective reality.

The upheavals that we presently see in our civilization represent a giant force of evolution that’s in motion. When we focus on any one of the current crises alone, we run the unfortunate risk of missing the forest for the individual trees, failing to recognize that all these crises collectively represent the evolution of community, not of the individual. What we’re evolving now is a super organism called humanity and a reality in which all of us know ourselves to be cells in the body of one living organism, the planet.

The eminent British historian Arnold Toynbee talked about civilizations as having life cycles. In an individual life cycle, something begins, develops, matures, and declines. Toynbee said that a newly forming civilization is like a child who is experiencing and trying new things. This would be a civilization’s period of early development. Next, a civilization begins to adopt the beliefs that work for it, and once it holds on to those beliefs, it enters a period of rigidity. This is akin to the child doing all the experimental stuff but then coming up against the wall of a parent saying “This is the way it is” and internalizing that message.

But there’s a problem with this rigidity: The universe is continuously and dynamically changing. So trying to hold on to a belief leads to challenges that are the result of not being flexible enough to bend with the currents of change. What is rigid begins to decline.

Civilizations have always come and gone. Our particular cycle is unique, however, because we’re not just ending a civilization, we’re also ending a complete stage of evolution. We also have the potential to jump into another stage of evolution, but I must emphasize that we have the potential. We cannot tell the outcome. We may or may not make it, and we must really own that. This doesn’t mean that we should stop trying to see how we might be able to survive but that we should be all the more active in trying to do so.
Bruce Lipton – Spontaneous Evolution Update 2013

Into 2013 we can let go of the limiting beliefs and myth perceptions. It is time to create inner peace for ourselves and the planet as a whole. Started feeling concern about the Supreme Courts decision to allow Corporate Interets to spend as much money as they wanted in supporting their ‘own’ candidate. The public dismissed all corporate interestes on election day- which supports what is actually needed, a new perception.

In a brief review of the timeline of civilizations, we begin with the peoples who lived in harmony with the earth and understood the nature of the planet as both material and spiritual. This is the belief system of animism, which, for example, the Native American Indians, the Druids in England, and the Aborigines in Australia share. When animism faded, polytheism emerged. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans created cultures based on the existence of many gods. Monotheism then replaced polytheism, and Judeo-Christian monotheism prevailed for some time until Charles Darwin introduced a scientific understanding of the nature of life. We’re still living with that belief system, scientific materialism, which views matter as the essence of the universe. Scientific materialism, however, is on its way out, and its civilization is presently ending. The new civilization that is emerging is not just a new civilization but a complete jump in evolution, to something far different than has yet existed on this planet.

A culture’s character is determined by its answers to the perennial questions: Why are we here? How did we get here? How do we make the best of being here? Throughout history, different civilizations have had different answers to these questions. Whenever the answers changed, culture also changed to accommodate the new answers. We call the belief system in these answers the basal paradigm of a civilization, its fundamental ideas. Whoever provides the answers for a civilization also becomes the provider of all other truths for that civilization. So, as the answers change, the truths change, and people’s belief in who bears the truth changes, changing the character of cultures over time.

With animism, the earliest peoples recognized the physical world and an influential invisible world, and a good example is the Native American belief system. How did they answer the perennial questions? We come from Mother Earth and Father Sky. Why are we here? We’re here to tend the garden and to keep harmony in it. How do we make the best of it? We learn to live in balance with nature. For thousands of years, this is the way life was lived. The Native American belief that we come from Father Sky and Mother Earth is actually a scientific reality. We got here because the inorganic material, the chemistry of Mother Earth, interacted with the sunlight from Father Sky and beget the organic chemistry of living systems.

Beliefs changed, however, at about 4000 bce, when the era of polytheism began. Polytheism took the spirit out of matter, whether it was people, animals, or raindrops. Spirit was still acknowledged, but it was coalesced into gods who were viewed as separate from matter. People started to emphasize the spiritual elements of the gods and looked less at the relevance of matter, believing the spiritual realm to be more powerful. Before the material world existed, they claimed, there was energy. It was chaotic, and then that chaos precipitated the material realm. This is what quantum physicists tell us. So the ancient Greeks beliefs held some deep scientific insight. Although the polytheists didn’t bother too much about why we are here, they did arrive at an understanding about making the best of existence: Don’t anger the gods. That was wonderful advice for people who believed the gods could shapeshift. You didn’t know if the person sitting next to you was a god or not, so everybody had to be careful not to anger the gods disguised among them. It was best to live in honor and harmony with everyone.
watch?v=-CTXWICPGig&feature=related
Four thousand years later, Judeo-Christian monotheism took hold and moved people even deeper into the spiritual realm, now regarded as the beautiful realm, the realm of perfection. Monotheists took spirit off of the planet and put it somewhere “up there.” They also gave people commandments for getting there. The first rule was not to get caught in the trap of matter – in other words, by enjoying this physical life, which is removed from spirit up there. The Judeo-Christian devaluation of matter and the physical plane, however, is reverse biology. Evolutionary biology says that when you do something good for the biological system, it feels good, and when you do something bad for the system, it feels bad. But Judaism and Christianity taught people to avoid getting caught in anything physical or material that feels good. Anything that felt bad became a sign that you were in the right place.

To the question of how got here in the first place, monotheists answered, by Divine intervention. God put the spirit of life into us. Why are we here? To live out plays of morality from which we can learn how to get off this planet with a ticket to go up there. How do we make the best of life on earth? Live by the laws of The Bible. If you need guidance on the laws, turn to the priests, who are connected to the source. Basically what happened, though, is that the concept of infallible knowledge, of absolute knowledge, meant absolute power, and that power corrupted the church, which led people to turn away from its doctrines. At this point the Protestants came in with a different idea: Material possessions aren’t damned but a sign that you are in favor with God. That’s when civilization moved back toward the material realm, although this didn’t change things much because many of the same answers still applied, only with a different leadership.

Civilization changed again during the Reformation when the church was challenged by several entities, including science, and during the Age of Enlightenment, which offered a new belief system, deism. French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau talked about a utopian world and the potential of living on this planet in a harmonious way. His ideas were based on his studies of the culture of American Indians. During the Age of Enlightenment, people honored the idea of the noble savage, of a man free to be on the land and to create what he could from his own endeavors. The founding fathers of the United States were deists, and the founding of the United States represented a way to live learned from the American Indians, who had an American “united states” for hundreds of years that they called the Iroquois Nation. The rules of the Iroquois Nation informed the writing of the U.S. Constitution. The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence states that the country is founded on the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” – not Christianity. Like the American Indians, the founding fathers saw God and nature as one and the same. All of them were scientists in the sense that they understood that if you study nature, you know more about God.

But that glorious moment of time was fleeting, and it didn’t change the basal paradigm. There was no new answer yet for the perennial question of how we got here. That showed up a hundred years later when Charles Darwin presented his theory of evolution, and a new civilization began. Science now had a valid understanding of how we got here, which many people, who were raising animals at the time, accepted based on their own observations. They saw that indeed the parents’ traits were passed on to their offspring and that every now and then you get a “weirdo” and that weirdo can create something different. When Darwin said that we got here through accidents of evolution – a change of genetics creating weird organisms that followed on their own path and together led to all the species – that made more sense to people than the story of Genesis. Within ten years of 1859, civilization changed, and scientific materialism emerged. It had new answers for the perennial questions. How did we get here? Through random mutations. Why are we here? We are accidental tourists on the planet. How do we make the best of it? We are living in a struggle for existence that is based on the survival of the fittest. This is a key issue because it says we must go out there and work like crazy because if we don’t, somebody else will beat us and kill us in the process.

The problem with scientific materialism is that it offers an end but no means. It’s the law of the jungle. The means to survival are any way you can get there. You can use your brain and be Einstein or you can use an Uzi and be a brute. Either means can make you a leader. It’s a civilization based on competition, not morality. This is the environment we live in right now. Newtonian physics also failed to address the invisible realm that religion talks about; one doesn’t need the spiritual realm to understand the material realm. As a result, people in this culture accumulate as much material as they possibly can to beat everybody else in the race for survival. Die with the most toys, and you win the game. And the consequences? We have decimated the planet.

As Below, so Above

Something else to consider here is that all the different sciences are connected to each other in building blocks that cement their belief systems. The foundation of all science is mathematics. On top of that is physics; you can’t have physics without mathematics. Physics leads to an understanding of chemistry, and chemistry to an understanding of biology. When you understand biology, you can get into psychology. These are the building blocks of our belief system, and it is predicated on Newtonian physics, which says that matter is primal. So we’re living in a world where the prize is a Humvee!

This whole belief system is changing, however. It began to change when it went a little deeper. In 1953, the concept of a “potential” gene became real when scientists identified DNA. I remember the headline in the paper: “Secret of Life Discovered.” A chemical – well, what do you expect in a chemical, material world? We bought into the gene story and determined there’s one last thing we must do: the Human Genome Project.

But between 1953 and 2001, while the Human Genome Project was under way, people started pulling away from the conventional medical profession. It wasn’t fully working for them, and they began to explore alternative methods. We’ve learned that 50 percent or more of the population seek an alternative, complementary, or integrative medicine doctor over a conventional doctor. People have lost belief in the system. And then the Human Genome Project pulled the rug out. It was supposed to verify the model that genes create life and to show us the more than 150,000 genes involved, but the project finished with only 23,000 genes. Something was amiss.

So the reality is that at this very time there is an upheaval. People are looking for new answers, and what we are discovering reveals something totally different about life. For example, a biology predicated on Newtonian physics, which is mechanical and physical, looks to something physical – that is, chemicals and drugs – to understand disease and healing. But a new scientific reality, quantum physics, says that everything is made out of energy. It is primal to matter and shapes matter. Another myth of material science is that genes control biology, making us victims of our heredity. The new science of epigenetics, however, says that genes do not control our life; our perceptions, emotions, beliefs, and attitudes actually rewrite our genetic code. Through our perceptions, we can modify every gene in our body and create thirty thousand variations from every gene just by the way we respond to life. In short, we are leaving behind a reality of victimization (by our genes) and moving into the reality that our mind – our consciousness, the immaterial realm – influences our experience and potential.

Another myth: Survival of the fittest. Nature doesn’t give a damn about the fittest. You can tell Mother Nature about Einstein, Da Vinci, and Mozart, but Mother Nature will say, “That’s nice, but the rest of your species are destroying the planet, so I don’t care if some of you were nice.” The new theory of evolution is based on cooperation and community, not Darwinian individualism. Our erroneous theories and belief systems have us killing one another and robbing the earth, when it turns out that according to the new science, such competitive, survivalist behavior is precipitating catastrophe. We haven’t understood the nature of community.

The last myth we have to reckon with is evolution as a random process. We didn’t get here by accident. Fractal geometry, a mathematical understanding of the universe, is revealing the truth of the spiritual maxim “as above, so below.” Fractal geometry demonstrates the scientific nature of that belief system, showing that images repeat themselves throughout life.

Bruce Lipton Spontaneous Evolution

The beliefs we have been living by are wrong. Fractal mathematics says: There is a pattern in the world, and there is a pattern to your evolution. Quantum physics says: Don’t focus on the material, focus on the immaterial realm. Energy is primal. The rule is that if a science on the lower part of the building changes its belief system, every science above that building block must incorporate it.

Biology and psychology have not adopted the new understandings of mathematics and physics; they are out of scientific context and no longer scientific. Quantum biology, however, a new science, examines how energy affects biology, and consciousness is that energy. As for psychology, a material psychology based on chemistry and drugs needs to be replaced by energy psychology. We heal ourselves with our thoughts, our mind, our consciousness, which are more powerful than chemistry. It’s the invisible, immaterial realm that’s powerful.

Galileo said, “Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.” Our civilization is changing to align with new holistic beliefs. In holism we again recognize Mother Earth and Father Sky as our creators, but we also understand that we got here through adaptive mutation to fit into the garden. Our purpose here is to tend this garden and to acquire awareness because that’s our part in evolution. And to make the best of our existence, we live in balance with nature, evolving a technology that allows us to live on this planet with the smallest possible footprint.

What we’re beginning to learn is that we are cells in a larger organism. At this moment – just like what’s happening in the bodies of many people on this planet – the earth is experiencing autoimmune disease, where the cells in the body are killing each other, and if we don’t learn fast enough, we are not going to make it. Those of us looking for new answers are the future of a new evolution. We are experimenting and investigating how we might create a better life.

The only way out is an evolution, and an evolution means undoing the previous structure. So don’t be afraid of the current structure falling apart; it’s a necessary step to get us to the next level. Don’t go into the future with fear but with the promise and reality of fractal geometry. We are returning to the original condition of wedding spirit with matter, the immaterial and material planes, and we will live in this garden with peace and harmony.

“Bruce Lipton’s book is the definitive summary of the new biology and all it implies. It is magnificent, profound beyond words, and a delight to read. It synthesizes an encyclopedia of critical new information into a brilliant yet simple package. These pages contain a genuine revolution in thought and understanding, one so radical that it can change the world.” -Joseph Chilton Pearce author of Magical Child and Evolution’s End

The Biology of Belief: An Interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton Interview by : Lotus Guide

BL: The new mechanism of evolution suggested by the new biology you describe in your book is one that consists of repeating patterns of self-similarity; it is a pattern based upon fractal geometry*. The significance of fractals is that they represent basic patterns that are iterated (repeated) over and over again. If you can recognize a pattern at one level of the structure you can apply that awareness to understand the patterns throughout the whole structure.

LG: Right, like the Fibonacci patterns** found in nature?

BL: Right, so basically the evolution of human civilization is self-similar the evolution of a single giant organism. We are *humans are the cells in that ‘ social’ organism. The relevance is that human civilization will evolve through the phases that characterized the evolution of animals, Human civilization will go through evolutionary phases that are redundant to previous evolution patterns. For example, in the evolution of vertebrate animals, the pattern provided for fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, an evolutionary jump occurred between each of these major classes of organisms, Civilization is in the process of such a jump now, as we are evolving from a reptilian-based civilization to a mammalian-based civilization.

The intellectual character of our culture’s leadership is currently most similar to that of reptilian behavior. And yet more advanced mammalian characters yourself and myself are in the process of rewriting a new blueprint for civilization, different from the way we are living now. Reptiles are ‘conscious,’ and do not express the trait of ‘self-consciousness.’ What that means is that they live for the moment but they have no conception or vision about how their actions today affect civilization tomoorow.

LG: Not much abstract thinking in that state of being.

BL: A perfect example is our going to war in Iraq , without even considering what the consequences of the war will lead to six weeks later. We fought the war without even a notion of how to deal with the population when the war is over. That is an excellent example of reptilian thinking. A mammalian civilization is a very different one because the character of mammals is that they are nurturers.

Nurturing means to ‘take care of things so that the future will be better.’ Mammalian civilization would be focused upon taking care of the planet, while the current reptilian government, like dinosaurs, are raping the planet for what they need at the moment with no consideration of how their actions affect the future.

I think that the mammalian character of our culture was actually seeded in 1969 when we were just completing the bird phase of human civilization. That phase of our evolution was initiated when Wilbur and Orville Wright got off the ground in 1904 and reached its fullest evolution, when we landed on the moon. When that famous picture of the earth on the horizon of the moon was taken in 1969 and sent back here, it changed the cultural mindset for a lot of people, for they responded by saying: “Oh my God, that’s all there is. We have got to take care of our planet.” And that’s when all of a sudden we got the idea to take care of (nurture) the air, the water, our children and we began to use that belief to impact political decisions. And that’s because there were enough people who were mammalian in character saying that we must take care of those things for our future so that there will be a planet left for our children.

We have been working on this mission, and it’s been an uphill battle against the old reptilian political hardliners. It’s now coming to a point where the dinosaurs (the president, his political followers and his friends in the ‘oil’ industry-which by its nature is derived from the dinosaur ages)’it’s going to crack. In the past, the dinosaurs went extinct, for they were not adapted to the evolving world. As in the past, something is happening that will not sustain the ancient reptilian mindset. We’re about to hit the wall, and future events will turn under the current social system so it will not be able survive using its current awareness.

After the crash, a new system, a mammalian-based nurturing one, will come out of the ashes. However, we will not experience the mammalian-based culture until the present one crashes. This means that we will have to wait and keep preparing for the future, while recognizing that during this evolutionary jump, all around us things are going to look pretty chaotic.

LG: As you probably know, in most chaotic systems there are hidden patterns that can be seen if you’re not consumed by fear.

BL: Well, that’s exactly where the fractal geometry comes in. Fractals are based on chaos and their order comes out of the chaos. We will leave behind the structure of the reptilian culture, go through a period of chaos and then evolve into a more advanced mammalian structure.

LG. Call me an incorrigible optimist, but that’s the vision I see. OK, here’s the first question: You say in your book, Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles, that by giving the “energy-based” environment its due, it provides the foundation for the science and philosophy of complementary medicine and the spiritual wisdom of the ancient and modern faiths as well as for allopathic medicine. Could you explain what you mean by that, and how does that unify complementary medicine, spiritual wisdom, and allopathic medicine?

BL: The first thing to recognize is that each one of these healing modalities ‘complementary, allopathic, and spiritual’ is based on their perceived philosophy of how life works. The philosophy that the allopathic community holds is that life is the consequence of a Newtonian matter-based machine. So when they look at the body it’s certainly based on matter; that’s all it is. If you understand the body’s physical pieces, you’ll understand why life works, how it works, and you can make physical parts called drugs to fix it. So their whole premise is that life is a physical machine and in that vision, energy is not relevant to the function of the machine.

In contrast, complementary medicine is based upon a philosophy that recognizes the controlling influence of energy that flows through the system’ specifically through the chakras, the meridians. It’s an energy-based system, which is not the same as the Newtonian material-based living system. Complementary medicine emphasizes that to understand how the body works, you really must understand the dynamics and influences of the energy flowing though the system.

Spiritual healers have a philosophy is somewhat akin to the complementary healers, but the complementary modality emphasizes a bit more the combination of the body’s physical and the energetic components, and therefore, integrates allopathic understanding as well. The spiritual baseline emphasizes that energy (spirit, an invisible force) runs the body, and does not focus much on the physical parameters of life.

Three philosophies: The first one, allopathic, is Newtonian physics. The spiritual one emphasizes quantum mechanics. And complementary healing integrates both, because it utilizes both the quantum and Newtonian characters to describe life. Now remember that physics and quantum mechanics are the same thing. Physics is actually defined as ‘mechanics’ so when we talk about physics, we are actually talking about mechanisms of how things work.

The first mechanistic approach was the Newtonian approach, when Newton created the mathematics to predict the movements of the heavenly spheres. The significance of his work is that when he made his calculations, he didn’t use the concepts of energy or God, or spirit in his equations. Newton just used the physical parameters the planets in his measurements. Since he was able to predict the movement of the planets using only their physical parameters and no other variables, it was perceived that one could understand how the Universe worked by ignoring the contribution of energy and ONLY studying its physical characteristics.

Quantum physics, on the other hand, reversed that fundamental belief in 1925. While Newtonian physics perceived that the Universe’s smallest subunits were marble-like atoms, quantum physicists looked deeper and found that atoms were not physical but were actually made out of energy. While Newtonians focused upon a Universe made out of matter, quantum physicists realized that the Universe and all of its components were made out of energy. And yet there is a reality that some of our Universe can be understood in physical terms and some of our world experiences can only be understood in terms of energy interactions. Just because quantum physics replaced Newtonian physics doesn’t mean that Newton ‘s laws are wrong. So there are levels of reality where one can understand the world through a Newtonian eye and then there are levels where you must really apply the mechanisms described in quantum physics.

LG: Yes, in physics it seems like extreme speed and gravity determine when Newton ‘s laws break down.

BL: Yes, because they are not based on energy mechanisms, which active in an entirely different realm of speed when compared to movement in the physical world.
In our world, things that are large in size, like cells, tissues, organs and bigger, can to some degree be understood by using the physical laws of Newton . But when you get down to the level of the atoms and molecules that make up the cells, you’re dealing with the quantum realm. Allopathic medicine focuses upon the larger physical realm in trying to understand how the body works. With Newtonian blinders on, all they consider are physical interactions. They perceive of the body as a molecular machine, and when it’s not working, that implies some physical components of the body must be malfunctioning.

Their vision of disease is, “If the physical body is not working right, then throw in new molecules to adjust the function.” And those molecular fixes are called drugs. So they attempt to heal from that mechanistic point of view. However, disease can manifest itself at different levels within the organism. If the problems arise from trauma damage to the physical body, allopathic medicine offers miraculous healing opportunities. If I break a bone, need a new heart or got torn-up in a car accident, you can bet that I would seek an allopathic physician to help me heal. They can rebuild tissues and they can rebuild organs and transplant organs and fix bones and all these things. That’s trauma. They do miracles with trauma and that’s where, if you get in an accident and break your leg, you want a medical doctor.

However, if my dis-eases are the result of malfunctions occurring within the cell, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, auto-immune disease, these dysfunctions arise in the operation of the cell’s molecules and atoms. Dysfunctions at these levels are controlled by mechanisms that operate in the energy-based interactions of the quantum realm.

For example, cancer is a dysfunction that starts within a cell, it didn’t get hit with a baseball bat or anything, like trauma. It started as a molecular process that went awry. Diabetes is due to a malfunction of the molecules of the cell. Alzheimer’s is expressed as a failure of the cell’s internalized cytoskeletal structure. Diseases arising at the level of cellular molecules cannot be understood employing Newtonian principals.

At this level of organization,we start to enter the realm of energy influences. Molecules are influenced by energy fields, not by baseball bats. For illnesses originating at this is level of the body, traditional allopathic medicine is pretty much lost, for they’re still pursuing mechanical defects in the genes and biochemistry. New research fully recognizes that quantum mechanical principles control behavior within the cell’s molecular architecture.

LG: I like how they change the word alternative to complementary; it’s actually a little more in line with what you’re saying.

BL: Absolutely, because we’re going to integrate the influences of both the energy and the matter in order to have a full awareness of how life works. Energy fields, like electromagnetic waves and prayer, profoundly influence the structure and function of molecules and the health of cells.

Research has shown that everybody’s mind is broadcasting invisible energy fields that can be read outside of our skulls. What’s relevant is that your regulatory energy frequencies are not contained within your body. You’re like a tuning fork walking down the street, vibrating thought frequencies into the field around you. If you get enough people to vibrate in harmony, then the power of their collective frequencies reach a level that is powerful enough to move things.

LG: Something we’ve noticed lately is a synergy in our community when like-minded people come together.

BL: Absolutely. It is based upon energy coherence. As two or more people align their thoughts, there is a dramatic increase in energy power and coherence over that expressed by any individual person. It’s not one plus one is two; it’s one plus one is some larger number.

LG: It’s interesting that you would mention coherence. My wife and I did neural feedback training and the moment we could reach coherence in our brain hemispheres, it was like a different ballgame altogether.

BL: Well, that’s an important observation because brain coherence between the cerebral hemispheres is virtually akin to realizing a state referred to as super-learning. And that’s an important brain behavior when you want to change the beliefs that run your life. In a state of super-learning one can literally download new data instantly.

LG: OK, next question is: As I look at some of the other sciences, like physics for instance, I’ve noticed a trend to view life, and our existence in it, as a more cooperative relationship. I also see in your view of cellular life this same tendency. Do you think this is an indication that we as human beings are evolving into a higher level of human consciousness?

BL: The answer is absolutely yes and it deals with the parallels that occurred in regard to how we evolved. For the first three billion years of life on this planet, the biosphere contained only free-living single-celled organisms. While such microorganisms as bacteria, yeast, algae and protozoa appear to be like disconnected individual living entities, over time they actually learned how to communicate across space with each other.

So bacteria, even though they appear to be separate entities, here’s a bacterium and there’s one over there, they are in fact part of a complex community. All microorganisms live in community. Their communities are based upon the fact that they exchange information with each other through chemicals and energy fields. These chemical and energy signals reflect the status of life or information so others in the community can get awareness as to what is going on in their world.

Through evolution, cell communities began to become more physically organized leading to the appearance of multicellular organisms such as fish, frogs, lizard birds and human beings. Some people like to suggest there is no direction to evolution, but indeed there really is. Evolution is an explosion principle like the Big Bang. It starts at a certain point but it doesn’t go in one direction like a ladder’ with a low rung followed by a higher rung. It’s actually a sphere, and the evolution of new species fills in all available environmental niches.

And while there were lateral progressions, to the left and to the right, they do not express evolutionary ‘advances’ over one another. But at some point when you’re building left and right, then the next step is to elevate. The one characteristic that is uniform throughout the entire biosphere is that evolutionary advances are characterized by their ability to handle more awareness.

So from the evolution of prokaryotes (e.g., bacteria) to eukaryotes (e.g., amoeba, paramecium), one of the striking features is the increase in cellular membranes; there’s 100,000 times more membrane in a eukariotic cell than there is in a bacterium. My research, using enucleated cells (cells in which the nucleus and its contained genes are removed), reveals that the behavior of cells is not interrupted.

hese studies emphasize that genes do not control control life. Subsequent research revealed that the brain of the cells was actually the cell’s membrane. The only membrane in a bacterium is just its outer skin. When you look at the higher-level eukaryotic cells, not only do they have an enveloping cell membrane but they also have many membrane organelles within the cell, such as mitochondria, nuclei, Golgi bodies, endoplasmic reticulum, things like that. All those are cell membrane-derivatives. They have more membranes which directly translates as more capacity to process awareness.

However, there was a point where a cell could not further expand the amount of membrane it contained, for if the cell became any larger, the physical pressure of the contained cytoplasm would cause the membrane to rupture like a water balloon that has too much water in it. Cells reached a certain physical size and if they got any bigger the membrane would break and the cells would die. So the first three billion years of evolution was focused on making smarter and smarter cells. When the limits of cell size was reached, evolution stopped for there was no way to add any more membrane.

So the course of evolution seemed to flatten out with all the varieties of single-celled organisms. But evolution continued with a new way to accumulate more membrane. Rather than increasing the membrane within a single cell, cells started to come together in close proximity and share the awareness expressed in their collective membranes. If a cell has X amount of awareness (available membrane) and it can ‘plug-in’ to other cells, they could directly share their awareness.

In the end, the awareness of a community of cells can be expressed as X times the number of cells comprising the community. Evolution began to advance as well as life’s efficiency when cells joined together into community. We characterize the different types of evolving cell communities in regard to the shape the multicellular organisms create. For example, single-celled amoebas may form a community that has a stalk and tentacles.

This ‘community might be called a hydra. A larger group of cells may organize their community into what we refer to as a clam. An even larger group of cells may acquire the ‘shape’ of a cat. And then again, an even larger community of single cells may acquire the shape of something we refer to as a human. Communities of cells are described as unique organisms, and we give those multicellular organisms specific identities.

We may look in the mirror and perceive of ourselves as ‘singular’ entities, each bearing a unique name and identity. But in fact, our bodies are actually the expression of a ‘social’ community of approximately 50 trillion cooperative single-celled organisms. Why are we here? Over the millions and millions of years of evolution, cells created more advanced ‘aware’ communities. The human body is an example of cellular architecture that provides for an extremely intelligent life form.

Over time, the evolution of maxed-out intelligent organizations provided for humans, dolphins and other higher organizations, suggesting that we have possibly reached the highest level of organic evolution. Does that mean evolution has reached an endpoint? In one sense, the answer is yes. But as revealed in the self-similar character of fractal geometry, the process of evolution would repeat itself. Humans recapitulate the situation that arose with the appearance of single cells. Humans are in a sense evolutionarily similar to single cells. When evolution reached the endpoint of single cells, it changed strategies and began to evolve through the assembly of single cells into community.

Individual humans are essentially advanced ‘single cells.’ Like cells, we have come together in community over the years to share awareness. Social assemblies has provided for an evolving form of humanity (civilization). As mentioned earlier, we are not at the stage of organization where our assembly provides for an ‘organism’ with the character of reptiles and that our future advancements will help shape humanity so that we will express the nurturing character of mammals. All the higher levels of organizations, from cells to humans represent organizations that have evolve through their ability to communicate awareness.

LG: It’s interesting how we are manifesting that in our outer world as libraries, postal services, and now the Internet.

BL: Oh, the Internet especially, because that’s what cells had to evolve before massive multicellular communities could manifest. Cells developed mechanisms by which they could instantly communicate information throughout the entire systems, so that a skin cell, a liver cell, and a bone cell, would instantaneously know when you’re having a good or bad moment.

Human evolution means that we’re going to have six billion different individual perceptions that will provide a full spectrum of awareness to collective community known as humanity. And despite the fact that our current reptilian mindset is fighting this evolution, the reality demands the inevitable evolutionary step in which we’re going to leave behind our reptilian fight-or-flight behavior, the struggle for existence awareness provided by Darwin . The next level of evolution will endorse that cooperation among the ‘cells,’ in contrast to the current notion of competition, is the ultimate step to our evolution and survival.

LG: And it seems like it takes so many subatomic particles to make an atom, so many atoms to make a molecule, so many molecules to make a cell, and it might take so many people to bring this about.

BL: Well, I think this is a reasonable assumption. Consider each human as a unique set of eyes understanding the universe. The more eyes’ the more awareness. It’s simple logic. That’s why this next jump in our evolution is going to be a very rapid change, for it primarily depends upon a simple rewriting of our current beliefs. Based upon that lightning speed in the advances of our communication technology, it will be very soon when all citizens of civilization will be ‘wired’ into the planet’s collective awareness. In the very near future we will resemble cells in our ability to instantaneous share awareness and experiences. When the wiring’s in place, what happened 10 minutes ago will be known by everybody on the planet.

LG: One more question here, and then we’ll get to the last question. How do you feel about society’s trend to self-medicate for stress with drugs such as Prozac and Zoloft?

BL: That is it is yet another example of a consequence of educating people that they are victims of their biochemical machinery. And because of this, we don’t take responsibility for the experiences we have in our bodies. We have a tendency to blame our problems on the failure of our body’s mechanisms. So, for example, we can talk about cancer and ask, “What’s wrong?” “Oh, the genetic mechanism is defective and that’s why it happened.” This is our belief even though data reveals that less than 5 percent of cancer is hereditary. Ninety five percent of cancer is derived from how a person responds to the issues that confront their lives.

It’s the same situation with cardiovascular disease. When you have a heart attack, does that mean you had a bad heart? No, it just means you have poor ‘driving’ skills in managing your responses to the world. While medicine generally suggests that your heart ‘fails’ you, in reality it more accurate to say you have failed your heart by generating stresses through your efforts to navigate life’s path. When an individual is offered drugs to cope, it takes away personal responsibility in managing your physiology.

Taking most drugs is tantamount to putting masking tape over all the gauges on your car’s dashboard, because the drugs cover-up the feedback of information sent from your body when it is trying to tell you that your ‘driving’ behavior is damaging the vehicle (body). While drugs may cover-up your health problems, somewhere down the road you’re going to run your body into the ground in that you are no longer paying attention to the gauges (emotions and symptoms) that provide feedback about how your body is functioning.

And the reality is that anyone who takes a drug to cover up their symptoms never really deals with the causes of their symptom. The drugs mask the symptoms so that we think everything is OK, yet the same destructive issues are still present and debilitating our systems.

LG: This is good information for people to really start reevaluating their lives and their actions and responsibilities. In the movie What the Bleep Do We Know, they said that most of our bad decisions are simply because we have bad information, which leads to limiting beliefs that we have about ourselves and reality, most of which is unconscious.

BL: We have two interdependent minds providing for our awareness and behavior. The most powerful processor of information is the subconscious mind that runs between 80-90% of our lives. It is like an autopilot in that it can run our day-to-day life without any input from the conscious mind. The conscious mind is a small part of the processor, but nonetheless one of the most advanced parts of our brain.

The conscious mind can be used to drive the system serving a s ‘manual’ control mechanism, your thoughts can actually run the body. With training, yogis for example can regulate all their bodily functions including metabolism, heart rate, body temperature and behavior of the immune system. But because consciousness can think about the past and delve into the future, most of the time our conscious mind is engaged with such activities and is therefore not ‘present’ to run the show at the moment of now. That is why the subconscious mind runs most of the functions and behaviors that characterize our lives.

However, most people are unaware of the fact that the primary behaviors that are engaged by the subconscious mind were downloaded into our mind before we were 6 years of age. We acquire these behaviors by observing our parents, our peers and our teachers. This means that most of our behavior is actually a replay of other people’s behavior’ this is where conflict enters our lives because their behaviors are generally not in our best interests.

The dangerous thing is that the behavioral ‘tapes’ programmed in our subconscious are other peoples’ behaviors and most of these behaviors were acquired so early in life, that we are not even consciously aware that we have or even use these programmed behaviors. Many of these early acquired behaviors are limiting, self-sabotaging programs. Your personal beliefs are in your conscious mind while the subconscious mind is a repository previously learned behaviors and reflexive instincts.

The minds are separate and an awareness in the conscious mind has no necessary counterpart in the subconscious mind. Also, while you might become aware of new things in your consciousness, that new knowledge does NOT change preexisting programs in your subconscious. Old traits hang on. We may try to override limiting subconscious behavior using the conscious mind, but it will never change conflicting beliefs programmed in your subconscious mind.

That’s why people have to use so much willpower to override the subconscious mind and that’s where the issue of ‘power’ comes in, because the subconscious mind is millions of times more powerful in processing data than is the conscious mind. In my book there is data that reveals that 20 million bits of information are processed per second in the subconscious mind; while only 40 bits of information are processed in the conscious mind for the same second.

LG: Which shows you the power of the filtering process created by our beliefs.

BL: Absolutely. The powerful subconscious mind runs the show; psychologists say about 80-90% of our daily behavior is run by the programming in your subconscious mind, most of which are apparently limiting programs. Therefore, ~85% of our life is an effort to overcome the conditions generated by the subconscious behaviors.

LG. Well, here’s the last question and we’ve already touched upon it because everything we’ve talked about leads to this question: It seems like the quest and the thrust of life is to self-organize into higher and more complex organisms for the soul purpose, that’s soul, s-o-u-l, of evolving into ever-higher levels of awareness and consciousness. Do you see us continuing this process as human beings linking together to form a planetary consciousness?

BL: Well, of course! Gaia, the planet, is itself a living cell. We are part of the Earth’s membrane. As described in my book, The Biology of Belief, we’re the equivalent of proteins in the cell’s membrane. The membrane’s proteins are the physical units of awareness. Humans are like organic antennas, downloading the Universe’s information. The beautiful part is that when we wake up, become more aware, we will find that all humans are a part of the same organism, Humanity. When that awareness is owned by civilization, that knowledge will complete the Earth’s evolution, for then we and the environment we live in, will cooperatively function as a single living cell. Then, as in all the previous evolutionary stages that has led us this point, this single cell (Earth) then joins up with the other planetary ‘cells’ to share our collective awareness. And so on and on ‘

LG: Then we’re talking about galactic consciousness that’s so far beyond even our wildest imagination.

BL: Absolutely. And we have hints that that consciousness is there, even though we are not! We are not evolved enough to dialogue with the other forms of planetary consciousness. When the Earth completes the current evolutionary process and we recognize our wholeness, the earth will represent itself as a single mature cell. At that time, we will hook up with other mature ‘cells,’ other planets, with life forms.

LG: The same way that molecules assembled into cells, cells assembled into organisms and organisms assemble into communities’

BL: Yes it’s a fractal thing . . . it’s implied in the geometry that it must go that way.

LG: It’s an exciting time to be alive, isn’t it Bruce?

BL: Absolutely! It’s exciting but in different regards for the humans now present in our world. For those evolving a new ‘mammalian’ consideration of life, they will see the possibilities of the future, and the joy of living in the Light. However, for those that maintain their ‘reptilian’ perceptions, it will be ‘exciting’
but in a negative way for they’re certainly locked in their beliefs about the struggles in life and their fear of death.

In the end, one side is going to walk away from this evolutionary leap and become whole, while those on the other side are going to be embroiled in the crises generated by their ancient, limiting thinking. Personally, I love being on the side of the Light.

LG: So do I, Bruce, so do I, and you know what? I think it’s really great that you’re putting out information like this. Validation somehow expands our awareness, which in turn gives us the courage to evolve past outdated beliefs.

BL: Likewise, what you’re doing in your community adds to this awareness; to get every cell to turn its Light on is what creates evolution, so we’re all working on this together. I would like to suggest that interested readers visit my website, http://www.brucelipton.com, to get more information and references on the important topics we touched upon in this interview. Information on my new book, including a sample chapter, is available at: http://www.beliefbook.com . Thank you for this opportunity to spread some good news!
