Why Life is More than a Series of Accidents or Random Events

Dr. Bruce Lipton, an author and one of the foremost experts in the field of epigenetics and The New Biology, explains that evolution truly works by means of entities joining together to form communities.

 

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

We've all heard stories of people who experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world?

According to Dr. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already happening.

In his newest book Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (and a Way to Get There from Here), Dr. Lipton explains we are surrounded by the proof that we are poised to take an incredible step forward in the growth of our species.

As he stated in an interview:

“Here we are on a planet with 6.5 billion people, destroying each other and destroying the planet, and we base it on this population that’s getting out of control and all this stuff like that.

And then I tell you this.

Well, we see ourselves as single individual entities. That’s a myth perception. We’re not a single anything. We are a community. We are a community of 50 trillion cells under our skin. And every cell is a functional biological equivalent of a miniature person.

Every cell has every function in your body in its body. Every cell is a miniature human, in a sense, in a large population. So under your skin, you have 50 trillion citizens.

Each one has a job, each has healthcare, each gets nutrition delivered to it, the garbage is taken out, and they live in a harmonious society where, if you’re in bliss, you’re actually -- well, you represent yourself as the entity -- no, 50 trillion cells are living in bliss and harmony at the same time.”

He then extends that thought to society as a whole. If you can live in harmony with 50 trillion cells inside of you, why can’t a society made of 6.5 billion people (all made of the same cells), also figure out a way to live in peace?

Dr. Lipton continues:

“And they [your 50 trillion cells] live in a society, and they have rules and regulations, and they’ve been here a billion years before we were here.

And the important understanding is this, is that there’s this old statement that says, “The answers lie within.”

And in fact, from a biological point of view, I have to say, yes, if you understood the dynamics of how energy is exchanged in this system, how the cells have jobs, and the rules that hold them together in this wonderful, cooperative, growing, healthy, loving community that you’ll find in a human body that’s in health, if you look into that population and see how they do it, it’s like, just take those rules and apply it to 6.5 billion people, and this whole world will instantaneously snap into the harmony that a human body can have in a healthy situation.”

This leaves lots of potential for our future on this earth.

What if Life Were Based on Cooperation Instead of Competition?

There is a Darwinian belief that life and evolution is based on the survival of the fittest, which is an inherent competition and a struggle for existence that goes on forever.

The new science, however, shows that this is incorrect, that evolution was not based on competition, but rather on cooperation.

This is a profound difference, and it tells us that if we want to evolve as a species, we must stop competing, and begin to recognize our coherence -- that we evolved to live as a harmonious community of people, living on this planet as one living “thing” called humanity.

As I write this, however, the earth is in a very sick state, which Dr. Lipton goes so far as to call a “deathbed state.” But this is in terms of conventional thinking.

If there’s a profound shift and change in thought -- about humanity, our roles in society and also our ability to take control of our own health on an individual level -- there can be a spontaneous remission, one that changes the outlook from dark to very bright.

The Internet is a Powerful Force for Cooperation and Community

If you would like to join in on this movement toward a brighter tomorrow, I highly recommend you first familiarize yourself with the foundation of epigenetics, and how the true secret to life does not lie within your DNA, but rather within the mechanisms of your cell membranes.

In this way -- which is contrary to conventional medical science -- it is actually your cell’s membrane -- operating in response to environmental signals picked up by the membrane’s receptors -- that control the “reading” of the genes inside.

What does this mean?

You Are in Contol NOT Your Genes

It means that you are not controlled by your genetic makeup. Instead, your genetic readout (which genes are turned “on” and which are turned “off”) is primarily determined by your thoughts, attitudes and perceptions!

What this does is place YOU in the power position -- NOT your doctor, not the medications you’re taking, and NOT disease or illness -- but YOU. This is a profound shift in belief, as it moves you from the position of a victim to one of the master.

Next, since your thoughts and emotions play such a significant role in modifying your biology and your health, treating your emotions becomes an essential part of optimal health.

Terms like “energy medicine” and “energy psychology” are words that have sprung up in response to these shifts in perception of reality, and I’ve long been an advocate of energy psychology tools to address underlying emotional traumas that can trigger disease, or keep you locked in a disease pattern.

Meridian tapping techniques, for example, work on several levels of your collective mind-body-spirit simultaneously, and can help you get a better handle on your emotions and buried pain, including the stress from unexpected tragedies.

So your second step would be to become familiar with Meridian Tapping Techniques, and potentially seek out a trained professional to help you nurture your emotional health.

Lastly, but still very important, is to use the Internet and all of its wonderful social networking sites and online communities, including the one below, to share your insights, talents and positive energies with the world. Doing so will not only help to create harmony and stability within your personal environment, but in the environment around you as well.
