Biology of Belief
Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized authority and author of several books. His field of science, called “epigenetics,” examines the principles of quantum physics as integrated into the cell’s information processing systems. Though considered controversial by some, his research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine 1987-1992 revealed that the environment, operating through the membrane, controls the behavior and physiology of the cell turning cells on and off. This stunning scientific discovery about the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning showed that all the cells of the body are affected by our thoughts. Dr. Lipton, in his published findings, describes the precise molecular pathways through which this occurs. He researched the structure and function of biological organisms as intimately intertwined, the correlation of the cell’s microscopic anatomy with its behavior, and his research revealed insight into the nature of Nature.
He showed that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts, thus revealing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking. He stated that it is a single cell’s awareness of the environment, not its genes, that set into motion the mechanisms of life. DNA was thought to be responsible not only for our physical characteristics, but also that our genes control our emotions and behaviors. Dr. Lipton’s research concluded that just as single cells are controlled by their awareness of the environment, so too are trillion-celled human beings. Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life.
Dr. Lipton’s findings revealed that cells teach about the mechanisms of life, as well as how to live rich, full lives. His view is that the body is a cooperative community of approximately fifty trillion single-celled citizens, with almost all of the cells being amoeba-like individual organisms that have evolved a cooperative strategy for their mutual survival. Just as a nation reflects the traits of its citizens, humanness must reflect the basic nature of our cellular communities. His message is that we are not powerless biochemical machines, not victims of our genes, but instead masters designed to create lives overflowing with peace and other valued qualities essential for our physical and mental health. As Dr. Lipton states, knowledge is power and knowledge of self provides self-empowerment.
