How that all makes you FIT or FAT and how you can use it.
How science and geneticists got it all wrong. Again.
“…You see, your DNA already has everything it needs to mold YOU into anything you want — fit, slim sexy full of energy and vitality, this awesome you. That’s why the DNA molecule is so freaking long! Everything is already there, and you just need to assign the right workers to do the job to get the results you want.
How do you do that?…”
Genetics, DNA, genome, chromosomes, longevity, biohacking are huge passions of mine. It’s all related to creating ourselves, our physical selves.
Here is the basic vocabulary for those of you who are not that much into science, but want to get some understanding for your benefits to take simple actions to lose weight, improve your health, get fitter etc. — the sky is the limit, actually your consciousness is, but more about that later.
DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a person’s body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA).
The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). Human DNA consists of about 3 billion bases, and more than 99 percent of those bases are the same in all people. The order, or sequence, of these bases determines the information available for building and maintaining an organism, similar to the way in which letters of the alphabet appear in a certain order to form words and sentences.
A gene is the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. Genes, which are made up of DNA, act as instructions to make molecules called proteins. In humans, genes vary in size from a few hundred DNA bases to more than 2 million bases. The Human Genome Project has estimated that humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes.
Every person has two copies of each gene, one inherited from each parent. Most genes are the same in all people, but a small number of genes (less than 1 percent of the total) are slightly different between people. These small differences contribute to each person’s unique physical features.
In the nucleus of each cell, the DNA molecule is packaged into thread-like structures called chromosomes. Each chromosome is made up of DNA tightly coiled many times around proteins called histones that support its structure.
Chromosomes are not visible in the cell’s nucleus — not even under a microscope — when the cell is not dividing. However, the DNA that makes up chromosomes becomes more tightly packed during cell division and is then visible under a microscope. Most of what researchers know about chromosomes was learned by observing chromosomes during cell division.
An organism’s complete set of DNA is called its genome. Virtually every single cell in the body contains a complete copy of the approximately 3 billion DNA base pairs, or letters, that make up the human genome.
With its four-letter language, DNA contains the information needed to build the entire human body. A gene traditionally refers to the unit of DNA that carries the instructions for making a specific protein or set of proteins. Each of the estimated 20,000 to 25,000 genes in the human genome codes for an average of three proteins.
Located on 23 pairs of chromosomes packed into the nucleus of a human cell, genes direct the production of proteins with the assistance of enzymes and messenger molecules.
There is a growing movement — GENOME editing. That’s what cutting edge science is working on, best minds of the next generation medicine, future-oriented medicine/technology/biotechnology startups and individual geeky health/medicine/biology enthusiasts.
Genome editing is editing of different parts of DNA strands. DNA is inserted, deleted, replaced to create certain effects in humans. Right now science is mostly interested in treating different undesirable conditions in humans, but also scientists are looking into developing more profound genetic traits or just changing the appearance of us, human-beings as desired (The appearance-changing is still in theory mostly, as far as I know).
The excitement about genome sequencing and editing is all about our ability to design and edit our physical selves without any medications and treatments, surgeries, without any considerable work on our part.
Got sick? Let’s edit your genes and be done with it!
Want to look differently for a better career or personal life? — Done! Edited.
Want to be smarter? Faster? Younger? Slimmer? Let’s figure out what genes are in charge of that and edit you fast and easy!
There are some successes with gene therapy already (sometimes it’s not even editing but altering our genes with other methods). But nothing too profound, nothing concrete, it’s all in experimental stage. We poke the box and see what happens trying to figure out why and how to repeat the effect, if so desired.
A couple of days ago I listened to a podcast by Dave Asprey (Bulletproof coffee/lifestyle guy. “A state of high performance”). Dave interviewed one of my favorite people, Bruce H. Lipton, Ph. D.
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized leader in new biology. His pioneering research on cloned stem cells presaged the revolutionary field of epigenetics, the new science of how environment and perception control genes. Bruce served on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed groundbreaking research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. He is the bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, The Honeymoon Effect, and co-author with Steve Bhaerman of Spontaneous Evolution. On today’s episode of Bulletproof Radio, Bruce and Dave talk about the evolution of epigenetics, cell membranes, research funding, the power of positive thoughts, physical and energy realms, life before DNA and more.
Bruce Lipton knows quite a lot about our biology, genes, cells, genetics and, surprisingly for lots of people, how the most important thing to change our biology, our genetics, our health and our life is, in fact, outside of our physical body. I’m talking about BELIEF. It’s not the ability to edit our DNA and genes precisely, but changing what we have in our head — changing what we think, how we feel, what we believe in, what we focus on.
Bruce Lipton made very powerful analogy that sank in my head deeply and developed into something bigger along the same line of thinking.
Bruce Lipton compared DNA, our genome to a blueprint for a house. He compared DNA to a map, a plan for building this organic living structure we call body.
This analogy might not seem like anything special to you until you really think about it.
Plan, blueprint is passive. It doesn’t do anything by itself. It just sits there, with a potential to be used to build a beautiful… or not so beautiful and steady house. Blueprint, that workers got to use to start doing the actual work of building a certain type of the house. Keep in mind, that different workers can and will interpret the blueprint differently depending on their goal and vision, their understanding of the job, their instructions — they can skip some parts, use other parts, building the house they were instructed to build buy “the boss”, an entity who has the vision, clear picture of the end result, and an understanding of the work and workforce required to create that exact picture, that vision. On the building site that “boss” is an architect, project manager. He oversees the process, sends the workers where they’re needed, to create the project according to instructions in the blueprint.
In our body that architect is the brain. It orchestrates all the teams of workers, distributing them to different sites and jobs to create the vision.
What brain actually does — gets his vision of the end result (healthy heart, faster legs, better memory, lower body fat, flu-free cancer-free body etc.), sends out orders to different entities in the body to start producing different substances (proteins, hormones etc.) according to our DNA code (the blueprint) to create the results needed.
Where does brain get its vision?
Certainly not from the blueprint files. Blueprints are plans for particular jobs, for all possible jobs. The brain gets instructions, the vision from our consciousness.
In the form of visions, thoughts, feelings, sensory information.
The brain does the best job possible getting those signals, that come from the environment in different forms — thoughts, feelings, visions, sensory information — and then interpreting them into commands for “body-builders”. The brain gets the job, the vision from our consciousness, and then figures out how to do the job the easiest and fastest way, and who’s gonna do that job the best.
We might edit, re-write, re-draw that blueprint, our DNA and genes, as much as we want, but if there is no signal from the brain to use that plan, it’s just gonna sit there completely forgotten and/or rejected.
Workers receive no orders to do anything, why will they do anything then? Change anything? Too much work! Workers have no idea what to do with the blueprint anyway. Their job is to continue doing what’s always been done until told (by the brain) otherwise. They are factory workers, not put there to think, but to do the job when told to do so.
So what are scientists working on that hard? What is being accomplished?
They are getting extremely good at re-drawing the blueprint! And that is a huge accomplishment! But until they start working, taking consciousness into account, consciousness and mind-body connection, there will be no profound long-lasting results.
And no amount of mice-based studies will change that.
Mice don’t have the same consciousness we have! Why don’t scientists get it? There is no placebo or nocebo effect in mice, is there?
Because there is no consciousness involved. No human consciousness.
And now to more earthy human stuff.
How can this whole blurb about genetics, DNA editing and the brain can help YOU to lose weight faster, or get your health back, or get fitter and look sexier?
You see, your DNA already has everything it needs to mold YOU into anything you want — fit, slim sexy full of energy and vitality, this awesome you. That’s why the DNA molecule is so freaking long! Everything is already there, and you just need to assign the right workers to do the job to get the results you want.
How do you do that?
Imagine exactly what you want!
It’s really simple and it IS THE SECRET!
Let your brain figure out the rest — don’t be surprised, if suddenly you have an urge to exercise daily. Seriously. Your brain might assign your lazy ass to do some more moving.
Imagine with all the details — how you look, how you feel, what your weights show, what kind of clothes you wear, what compliments you get, how much energy you have, how you smile at yourself in the mirror looking smoking hot — see it, feel it, touch it, smell it, taste it, LIVE IT — even if it’s only in your mind for now.
Believe in it with 100% certainty.
Have zero doubts.
And let the rest happen naturally. Let it go.
It works like magic.
Well, it is kind of magic, until you know how and why it works.
I changed my hair color using the method. And went to Kennedy Space Station to see Buzz Aldrin (first man on the Moon) using the method. I’m in the process of working on more challenging (for my brain) objectives right now.
If things can be done easy, why the hell do them the hard way, making it so damn difficult and complex?
Why do scientists want to read billions of DNA bases to figure out how to edit the plan that needs no editing in the first place?
When the results can be achieved so much easier?
By the way that’s where the power of VR (virtual reality) can help a lot. With the imagination stuff.
Imagine, watching in VR, slim healthy sexy version of yourself living the life of your dreams, the movie with you as a lead? Your brain will be totally hacked and tricked into believing it’s all real! And it will do the job of creating the matching chemistry in the body and your life so much better and faster.
Can’t wait to start doing that!
I’m not against science and technology. All for it! I just think scientists do mistakes and stupid unnecessary things too sometimes. Before getting it all right.
