The Science Of Innate Intelligence

Bruce Lipton Ph.D. (831) 454-0606, is a scientist, a Cellular Biologist at Stanford. He was cloning stem cells several decades before this field came to the forefront of science. From this work he made some significant discoveries. He has shown that genetics (DNA) does not control biology in the way it had been supposed.

"Environmental signals" are primarily responsible for selecting the genes expressed by an organism.

He found in his research that a certain class of genes have the function of engineering the design of other genes. In humans from several months before birth until about the age of six, a child unconsciously acquires the behavioral repertoire needed to become a functional member of society. In addition, a child's subconscious mind also downloads beliefs relating to self. This is done in the
theta or hypnogogic state.

Most people believe that the conscious mind controls our physiology, but in fact, almost all of it is controlled by the subconscious mind, which has data processing power perhaps a million times greater than the conscious mind, and is in charge as much as 99 percent of all our activity.

Survival requires protection as well as growth; however cells cannot be in both modes at once. Remaining in the protection mode will eventually destroy the body's defenses because normal replacement of protein parts cannot be continued and can be especially harmful, resulting in various diseases.

Apparently the human energy field both permeates the entire body and radiates to the outside, inches to feet beyond the body's surface. According to Dr. Lipton every cell has an antenna tuned into signals broadcast by the mind. Perceived danger causes physical bracing and psychological bracing so that our belief systems include patterns of protective behavior.

Apparently there are new methods more effective than traditional psychotherapy in changing the unconscious. Here are 3 ways to reprogram or rewrite the old tapes:

  1. Buddhist mindfulness ( becoming very conscious in order to reprogram the unconscious).
  2. Hypnotherapy - return to brain state theta or hypnogogic state.
  3. Energy Psychology (Superlearning -such as ESP, body talk, Avatar, holographic repatterning, and Psyche-k).

The following is a synopsis of his videotape, titled THE SCIENCE OF INNATE INTELLIGENCE.

The science we have been living by apparently has some grave errors in it. In fact, we are approaching a turning point, a kind of crisis in mainstream beliefs of our culture. For example, as much as 40% of Americans would prefer alternative healing methods over conventional medical treatment. All too often the cure seems worse than the disease, and in fact illness brought about by medical practices (iatrogenic illness) is the third greatest cause of illness.

From about the time of Christ until about 1600 AD, the central philosophy was to gain an understanding of the natural order of things in order to live in harmony with it. Copernicus published his findings in 1643, and this is considered to be the beginning of the Scientific Revolution. He waited until just before his death to publish because his writings revealed the fallibility of the church, and he knew would have suffered the inquisition.

After that, men like René Descartes said that all knowledge must be questioned since it had been handed down primarily by the church or from the Greeks. Francis Bacon, who was a well known misogynist, declared that the aim of the scientists was to obtain knowledge so that we could dominate and control nature, "she must be bound."

In 1859 Charles Darwin published his book which claimed that heredity elements are passed on to give the character of the parents to the offspring. After that time even psychological traits were thought to be bred into the species.

By the time of Isaac Newton, metaphysical or spiritual issues were no longer in the forefront. Newton’s materialism viewed the world as a kind of machine, which was to be known by taking it apart and studying the pieces (reductionism). The implication was that of structure and function where parts were replaceable. The central philosophical issue here was about whether control was innate and mechanistic or whether control was spiritual, originating from the outside, "all that matters is matter."

Only structure and function were admissible for study. Even the human body came to be seen as a kind of machine with a structure consisting of protein parts to accomplish the functions of digestion, excretion, respiration, nervous communication and reproduction.

The structure of this human machine has been studied in great detail. Amino acids (protein) are the building blocks, and are arranged in linear chains, which take on a 3-dimensional shape or structure on account of electrical charges. These electrical charges actually make the cell parts move or have active and inactive phases so that for example, a nervous impulse causes a muscle to contract. Life is movement and this movement distinguishes living matter from non-living.

In 1953 Watson and Crick discovered DNA. Studies of the protein machine reveal a complex polymerase, which is contained in every cell, so that every single human cell has enough information to reproduce an entire human. DNA is extremely stable and in fact studies of fossil material that is 50,000 years old show the DNA structure to be still intact and viable.

This gave rise to a belief in the primacy of DNA as being the causal agent in all life. Genetic determinism holds that all traits and characteristics are defined at the moment of conception. Crick’s hypothesis implies a fatalistic view which disempowers the individual and would have you believe that you are controlled by your genes. Acceptance of this hypothesis is so widespread that some women whose family has a history of breast cancer have undergone a mastectomy rather than risk getting the cancer. This belief was in the best interest of drug manufacturers who have become very powerful.

But the reductionist idea that a cell is a bag of protein parts has been challenged by recent findings about cellular awareness. DNA studies ignored the function of regulatory proteins which turn cells off and on, or activate them through chemicals generated by the environment. Cell membranes contain receptors or antenna-like parts which act like scanners, converting environmental signals into electro-magnetic stimuli which regulate proteins within the cell.

There are many kinds of these receptors whose specific shape enables detection of many kinds of stimuli such as glucose, histamines, insulin, and even light, etc. It was assumed to be the cell nucleus that directs the cell’s activities, but in fact, the cell can accomplish everything but reproduction with the nucleus removed, and will continue to function as usual for months until the individual parts need to be replaced or reproduced. A bacterium, which is the most primitive organism, doesn’t even have a nucleus, or internal parts (organelles). All its functions are contained in the cell membrane.

So it turns out that awareness (the brain) is in the membrane, or ectoderm. The skin of cells is composed of two parts that make up a bi-layer of protein and phospho-lipids. The outer layer has receptors which are antenna-like structures that receive signals from the environment.

The interior of the cell has a negative electrical charge. A receptor acts like a switch which permits a positive electrical charge from outside the cell to enter through the cell membrane. This causes an electrical spark, or signal, which causes a vibrational frequency like Morse code to be generated. These electrical signals affect the proteins of the cell and regulate its functions.

So there are receptors and processors and channels to allow environmental stimuli to evoke responses within the cell by changing the shape of the proteins in the membrane. And these receptors are so extremely sensitive that they can detect the presence of a single atom of glucose diluted with enough water to fill a whole harbor at the seacoast.

Cell membrane molecules are lined up like a kind of liquid crystal that change from conductor to non-conductor. The membrane is a semi-conductor with gates and channels. Electrical currents flow across the channels when the gates are open. This is exactly the same definition as a computer chip. The cell membrane is the same as a computer chip with individual receptors as the keys on the keyboard. The cell nucleus is like the hard drive that contains the software. If you remove the floppy disk that installed the program, the computer still works and you can select which software program you want to use at the moment.

There are 50 to 70 trillion cells in the human body, and each one contains in its DNA blueprint enough information to reconstruct an entire human body, but it does not determine or limit the potential of that human. Organisms can change to accommodate the environment.

In 1988, a Harvard geneticist and biochemist named John Kearns published in Scientific American, perhaps the most important paper in the history of biology. He countered the idea of random cellular mutation as set forth by Darwin with the idea of specific mutation brought on by the conditions of the environment. The implications are enormous, establishing the primacy of the environment over genetic determinacy.

He found that bacteria placed in an inhospitable environment could adapt to that environment. Given only a food source that was incompatible, by sensing the protein structure of the food source that was available, the organisms adapted their digestive parts to accommodate the food source. He showed that a certain class of genes has the function of engineering the design of other genes. It means that the cell nucleus can create a biological pathway to accommodate the environment by sensing the conditions of the environment.

Up until this time science had mistakenly accepted as fact the hypothesis that control of cellular activity originated genetically from within the cell, according to random mutations of the genes. This body of work in fact proves that cells are regulated by responses to the environment. Genes are not causative, but only correlated, just blueprints that are altered as needed by environmental demands.

Everything in the universe has a characteristic resonance or frequency. Quantum physics addresses the issue of the resonances of everything being connected and the information transmitted by frequency resonances. For example, electromagnetic fields can change protein synthesis.

Magnetic fields are set up around the nerves, and thoughts emit the same variety of frequencies that activate biological processes within the cell. Individual humans have unique frequencies associated with all their cell membrane receptors. The immune system distinguishes friendly cells from invaders in this manner. In fact, people with major organ transplants may begin to emulate characters and traits of the donor because cell antenna identity or frequencies are transplanted with the tissue.

Survival requires protection as well as growth. Cells can be either in a growth mode or a protection mode, but not both at the same time. Physical injury to cell tissue results in the release of histamines by the mast cells, which open the blood vessels allowing the release of defense mechanisms like white blood cells to counter an infection. Trauma can cause a fight or flight response, where blood is shut off to the forebrain and diverted to the hindbrain, and the adrenals are activated for a burst of energy, and the immune system is compromised.

Just as physical trauma causes triggering of histamine defense mechanisms, a perceived threat can cause a similar reaction from the brain resulting in the release of norepinephrine, which is similar to histamines in its effects on the body. These gluco-cortecoids are used to suppress the immune system in patients having organ transplants.

The levels of these stress-related hormones are very high in most people because of stressful lifestyles. Remaining in the protection mode will eventually destroy the body’s defenses because normal replacement of protein parts cannot be continued and can be especially harmful, resulting in various diseases.

We respond not just to stress, but to perceived stress. If an air raid siren sounds, the community stops normal functions and goes into a bomb shelter (protection mode). But when the "all clear" signal is sounded, normal activity resumes. However if the "all clear" is not sounded, the protection mode persists, the adrenal system shuts off the immune system.

Certain kinds of stress patterns attenuates the defense mechanisms and can result in psychological trauma so that the protection mode becomes chronic as in a subluxation, where the bodily posture is changed by bracing against trauma from either real or perceived danger. Besides physical bracing, prolonged stress can result in psychological bracing so that our belief systems include patterns of protective behavior.

Four billion bits of information come into the nervous system every second, but only about two thousand can be processed consciously, so more than ninety-nine percent is not processed consciously. Memory patterns automatically create belief filters in the brain, and most of our behavior comes from unconscious beliefs and expectations. Attitudes set up in early childhood or are passed on to us from our parents and early environment.

So, memory patterns are automatically created in the brain and once in place, these pre-programmed patterns and beliefs become automatic, and these pre-learned tapes and experiences usually run our lives. Only a considerable conscious effort can change these. This explains the difference between what we think and what we do, and why our emotional responses often over-ride the intellect.

Belief you don’t even know you have can affect what you do and who you are. You and your physical health are a summary of your beliefs and perceptions, the kind of data you are expecting. Your cells see what you see and the cell’s nucleus can create a pathway, so you can select what software you wish to use, so to speak.

"...a radically new understanding has emerged at the leading edge of cell science. It is now recognized that the environment, and more specifically, our perception (interpretation)of the environment, directly controls the activity of our genes. Environment controls gene activity through a process known as epigenetic control.

This new perspective of human biology does not view the body as just a mechanical device, but rather incorporates the role of a mind and spirit. This breakthrough in biology is fundamental in all healing for it recognizes that when we change our perception or beliefs we send totally different messages to our cells and reprogram their expression. The new-biology reveals why people can have spontaneous remissions or recover from injuries deemed to be permanent disabilities."

This new biology is called Epigenetics.

Be very careful of your thoughts and your vision. Breaking free of the limitations imposed by past experiences requires dedication, and conviction that you are not locked into anything. We are not helpless, but responsible. Know your beliefs, write them down and learn to visualize. Body is the extension of spirit. Evolution is awareness!

    Gregg Braden
    Gregg Braden, a former areospace computer systems designer, has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets for over 20 years. Combining his discoveries with the best science of today, his original research crosses the traditional boundaries of science, history, and religion offering fresh insights into ancient mysteries. In doing so he has redefined our relationship to our inner and outer worlds, while sharing his life-affirming message of hope and possibility.

    Could the marriage of science and spirituality answer the deepest mysteries of our past, while solving the problems that threaten our future? A growing body of evidence suggests that the answer to this question is an empowering “YES!”

    Discovery 1:
    There is a field of energy that connects all creation.

    Discovery 2: This field, plays the role of a constsnt, a bridge, and a mirror for the beliefs within us.

    Discovery 3: The field is nonlocal and holographic. Every part of it is connected to every other, and each piece mirrors the whole on a smaller scale.

    Discovery 4: We communicate with the field through the language of emotion.

    Mystic Pop Magazine, Nov/Dec Issue 2006 -

    “What strange beings we are!” noted the 13th Century mystic Rumi, “That sitting in Hell at the bottom of the dark, we are afraid of our own immortality!”

    Perhaps it is actually the power to choose our immortality, as well as everything from our personal healing to the peace of our world, that truly frightens us! A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that it is us —our consciousness— that holds the key to life and even reality itself! In 1967 the pioneering physicist Konrad Zuse married the ideas of consciousness with modern technology and proposed that our universe works like a massive consciousness computer. And just as every computer translates “Input-commands” into “Output-results,” our cosmic consciousness computer appears to do precisely the same thing! When we translate our deepest beliefs into the reality of our world, we are literally re-writing the code that makes the universe appear as it does.

    Living In A Participatory Universe
    A series of breathtaking discoveries has given us a powerful new way to think of our role in the universe. Rather than the conventional view that suggests we are passive observers, living a brief moment of time in a creation that already exists, the discoveries suggest that it is actually consciousness itself that is responsible for the existence of the universe! Perhaps the most revolutionary discovery supporting this idea, is the scientific fact that when we look at the stuff our world is made of — tiny quantum particles such as an electron, for example — the very act of us watching that electron changes the way it behaves in our presence.

    What’s more, the longer we look, the more it changes! In 1998, scientists at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science documented this phenomenon showing that “the greater the amount of ‘watching,’ the greater the observer’s influence on what actually takes place.” (Nature, Feb. 26, 1998) Citing such experiments, Princeton University physicist John Wheeler suggests that we not only play a role in the creation of our everyday world, but we play the prime role in what he calls a “participatory universe.” Wheeler states that we can no longer think of ourselves merely as onlookers who have no effect on the world around us, because it is impossible to simply watch. If we are alive and conscious, then we are affecting our world. “The old word ‘observer,’” he says, “simply has to be crossed off the books…and we must put in the new word ‘participator!”

    The key to Wheeler’s proposition is the word “participatory.” In a participatory universe, you and I are part of the equation. We are both creating the events of our lives, as well as the experiencers of what we create. Both are happening at the same time! In other words, we are like artists expressing our deepest passions, fears, dreams, and desires through the living essence of a mysterious quantum canvas. The difference between us and conventional artists, however, is that we are the canvas, as well as the images upon the canvas. We are the tools as well as the artists using the tools. And just as artists refine an image until it is just right in their minds, we may think of ourselves as perpetual artists, building a creation that is ever changing and never ending. Through our artist’s palette of beliefs, judgments, emotions, and prayers, we find ourselves in relationships, jobs, and situations of support and betrayal that play out with different people in different places. What a beautiful, bizarre, and powerful concept.

    Living from the Answer
    From the perspective of us participating in an ever-changing universe, the solution to any condition is a change in attitude and belief. And this is the great secret of propelling our heart’s desires from the possibility of imagination, to the reality of our everyday lives. The key is our ability to feel as if our dreams have already come to life, our prayers already answered, and live from that feeling. There is a subtle, and yet powerful difference between working toward a result, and feeling from that result. When we work toward something, we embark upon an open-ended and never-ending journey. While we may identify milestones, and set goals to get us closer to our accomplishment, in our mind we are always “on our way” to the goal, rather than in the experience of accomplishing our goal. This is precisely why Neville’s invitation to “enter the image” of our heart’s desire and “think from it” is so powerful in our lives.

    In the ancient studies of martial arts, we see a beautiful metaphor in the physical world for precisely the way this principle works in consciousness. When martial artists choose to break a concrete block as a demonstration of focus, for example, the very last thing in their minds is the place where their hand will touch that block. The key is to place our focus upon the completed act: the healing already accomplished, or the brick already broken. As a student of the martial arts, I was taught to do this by focusing on a point in space that is beyond the bottom of the block. The only way that my hand could be at that point was if it had already passed through the brick. In this way, I was thinking from the completion, rather than how hard it would be to get to the completion. I was feeling the joy of what it feels like to accomplish the act, rather than all of the things that must happen before I could be successful. This simple example offers a powerful analogy for precisely the way that consciousness seems to work. And this is the great secret that has been protected and preserved for us in wisdom of our past.

    From the monasteries of Egypt and Tibet to the forgotten texts of our most cherished traditions we are reminded that we are part of, rather than separate from, the world around us. As part of everything we see, we have the power to participate — not control or manipulate — but to consciously chart the course of our lives and our world. Please don’t be deceived by the simplicity of contemporary philosopher Neville Goddard’s words when he suggests that all we need to do is to “assume the feeling of our wish fulfilled.” In a participatory universe of our own making, why would we expect that peace, healing, and a long and healthy life should be any more difficult?

    Interesting Possibilities

    The study of human consciousness has seen profoundly important discoveries emerge in the past couple of decades. Old science tells us that we are mechanical systems governed, fundamentally, entirely by impersonal laws. But now we have come to a new understanding that we actually create our reality moment to moment. Noted physicists and mathematicians, as well as psychiatrists and neurophysiologists, are now supporting this opinion.
