Biology is entering into a paradigm shift finally giving up the theory that we are all controlled by our genes.
Current science believes that we are not as powerful as our genes. The problem with this belief system is it extends to such a degree that it makes us irresponsible. If happiness is determined by our genes, then the moment we are born, our happiness can only unfold according to the program of the genes. There is nothing we can do about it.
Bruce Lipton’s ground-breaking scientific experiments prove that our genes are not the brain of our cells, as our biology books continue to teach. Experimenting with cells, he took out the nucleus, only to discover that the cells can continue to live for weeks. His conclusion is obvious – the nucleus with its DNA is not the brain of the cell, and therefore does not control the cell.
The nucleus of the cell contains 50% DNA and 50% protein. Scientists have analyzed the cell; and in doing so, looked only at the DNA, discarding the proteins. The DNA is the reproductive system for the proteins. If a protein is not available, yet is necessary for an environmental response, it can be built from the blueprint that the DNA provides.
What is Controlling the Cell?
Astonishing as it sounds it is the environment, and the cell’s perception of it!
The perception of the cell is experienced through the skin. The skin contains hundreds of proteins that act as preceptors and effectors. Preceptors are triggered by environmental signals like temperature and light. This primary signal is then translated inside the cell, becoming a secondary signal, which activates the protein to do something – for example, to break apart an enzyme.
We are all made up of trillions of cells. Our bodies and organs share the same pattern. There is one big difference, and that is our ability to perceive an environmental signal. Perception is influenced by our beliefs. I can experience a healthy environment and at the same time believe it is not healthy for me.
By believing this I am changing my perception, and therefore changing my cellular behavior. For example, a specific protein that is necessary in strengthening my immune system cannot be reproduced. That leads to a reduced immune system, and might allow the beginning of a dis-ease.Cells have two basic behaviors: growth and protection. The cell can choose only one at a time; it is either in growth mode, or in protection mode. Other behaviors are more neutral, but not applicable for understanding our current scenario.
Our system cannot grow if we are in protection mode. Protection mode is another form of stress. If our system is in constant stress mode, there is no possibility for growth. However, growth is an essential part of our evolutionary survival strategy, and if we are not growing, we are stagnating and creating the chance for dis-ease.What does this all mean? It is a faulty assumption that we are controlled by our genes. There are no cancer genes. It is not possible for a gene to activate or change on its own – for example, producing cancer. It is the environmental signal and our perception (belief) that contributes to a change in our system.
Bruce Lipton’s teaching on cellular biology takes listeners on an in-depth exploration into the microscopic world, where new discoveries and research are revolutionizing the way we understand life, evolution, and consciousness. In this full-length audio course, Dr. Lipton shares his lucid and startling insights about the building blocks of life, and how each of our cells has far greater innate intelligence than we once believed.
Thinking we are controlled by our genes can directly be linked to the world around us, and more importantly, to our perception of our environment. Perception is highly influenced by our beliefs; therefore, beliefs control our genes!
The bottom line is this: we are all powerful. We have power over the development of our life. We have power over which genes can be activated. We are not the victims of our genes. What we have to do is select the appropriate beliefs according to our environment.
If you wake up in the morning with a sore throat it does not mean you are getting a cold. This is actually a belief you either made up on your own, or took on from someone else (maybe your parents).
There is no reason to live your entire life holding onto a certain belief. We can change our beliefs like we change a CD in our CD player.
“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
Max Planck, Nobel Prize-winning father of quantum theory
About Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized cellular biologist who taught cellular biology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and went on to create pioneering studies at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. His breakthrough research on the cell membrane in 1977 made him a pioneer in the new science of epigenetic. He is the author of “The Biology of Belief” as well as a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He has appeared on radio and television.
