I suppose your snide comment is referring to me?
You've never heard of original thought? Or considered that i had not yet read the paper?
For what it's worth, I had not heard of it until now, my ideas are my own and are my own original thought processes.
The inspiration for my thinking and ideas about hard coded DNA memories, came from reading 'The sacred mushroom: Key to the door of eternity', by
Audrija Puharich 1959, and other books on diverse subjects, mostly esoterica.
Perhaps you are bitter (you read bitter) because you have yet to experience the 'eureka emotion' associated with an original thought? Or the joy of
conceptualising something that isn't derived from having dogmatic literature shoved into your skull?
If you want to use the term 'Biotechnologist' to blow YOUR own trumpet, or as some kind of intellectual support for your snide retort, specifics
would be nice. What's your line?
Talking of snide retorts..
Something remotely resembling even a casual attempt at correct punctuation and capitalisation from you would be polite when slagging someone else off.
It would also aid the reader in knowing more easily where one sentence ends and another begins. I'm not talking about perfection you understand, (pot
and kettle) rather just showing that you have the manners to make an attempt would be sufficiently polite. If nothing else, it would show you are
considerate of your reader.
I would hope you're not as careless in your stated role as a 'biotechnologist', or else who knows what may escape into the environment from your
As for frequencies and tones having positive or negative effects on the human brain, development of psyche, emotions, even cellular growth of the body
are all demonstrably proven.
Obvious examples would be a mother gently cooing to her child, will invariably elicit a positive, calming reaction in the child, whereas the same
mother screaming at the top of her lungs, will invariably produce a negative reaction. Over time, this would have a profound and permanent
physiological and mental effect on the child, one way or the other.
Music comprising gentle and melodic tones, such as a meandering Ballard would tend to soothe or pacify, Thrash death metal conversely probably
Shaman, and a host of indigenous peoples around the world all sing and chant or use melodic tones of various frequencies together with repetitive,
rhythmic percussion beats, as an aid in entering the correct mindset to 'converse' with the spirits or gods/ancestors, or to bring a third party
into a similar mental/spiritual state.
All of which clearly shows frequency and melody can and does have a profound physiological effect on the human mind and body. It can and does alter
the physical chemistry of the mind and body, and these chemical changes, however transient are measurable phenomena.
Religious peoples from around the world, even in your local church/chapel/synagogue/mosque/temple/coven, all sing and chant when 'conversing with
their god or gods' too...i don't think this is a coincidence or accident by organised religion.
Hymns are based on certain melodies and frequencies, which i think (if you'll be so kind to indulge my ego again) is designed to elicit a specific
mental or spiritual state in those singing and those exposed to the sounds.
Prayer is another form of chanting of course, and again is designed specifically to elicit or encourage a certain mental state. Both singing hymns and
chanting (or prayer), is similar to sound/frequency induced hypnosis...which probably explains a lot about religion, but also hints that the
'ancients' were well aware of the power of certain frequencies and melodies on the human body long ago.
While i realise that my ideas and the paper referred to in this thread, may not be exactly the same ideas, i also realise this is not a dedicated
scientific institution, demanding of rigorous peer review and extraordinary measures to validate one's hypotheses, so therefore i felt comfortable
sharing my original thinking and ideas, without feeling pressured to prove it to anyone. And frankly, so should you have realised this too, before
jumping down my throat.
I put my thinking 'out there' for the sole purpose of potentially inspiring other people (or not), who may be thinking along similar lines, who may
be inspired and given a new direction of thought. If what i said helps them, great.
I happen to instinctively feel there is a great deal of merit to the idea that DNA may well hold an encoded archive of ancestral memory and
experience...have i any proof other than my instinctual feeling? No, as you say, if there was solid unambiguous proof we would be further into making
a greater use of this repository by now.
But then, even profoundly affecting discoveries begin as a simple idea or as an exercise in mental flight.
