Bruce Lipton - Incorporating Life Experience
Please contribute a chapter to a book, “Science of Life”.
The book as a whole deals with the way our body integrates information with matter.
In your publications and presentations you help people understand that, and how, the cell proteins add information of life experience into DNA.
In this book it is a key to understanding the larger picture, the whole puzzle, of … life.
On the one hand, we have a physical body, on the other hand we all experience our ability to think in our mind.
At the same time we live in society (culture) as part of Earth (nature).
Your work is exemplar for the principle of interconnectedness and symbiosis address by Lynn Margulis: all life forms are interconnected.
Hans Reckeweg, James Oshmann, you and Herbert Fröhlich show how we take in information and incorporate it into our body.
Each, respectively, describe what happens at the level of the whole body system (Reckeweg), in the connective tissue system (Oshmann), in the cell membrane proteins (Lipton), and in the electromagnetic organisation of matter in the information field of the body (Fröhlich).
Hans Reckeweg described how we take information into or body; and how it can backfire, in, respectively, the body, organs, cells and DNA. But also how that can backfire if the body cannot process the information/changes which are experience from the context.
James Oshmann, described how information and electrical impulses (respectively) are linked and interwoven with the body materials.
You describe how the proteins respond to the information flows and incorporate (information of life) experience into matter (DNA).
Herbert Fröhlich calculated how bio-materials respond to, and transform due to, electromagnetic fields (which in our body are also the carriers for information).
The book aims to help understand that Freedom of Choice is the crucial difference which discerns life from dead matter.
Freedom of Choice is not found in (dead) matter, but in the way living cells produce materials which are responsive to information.
Phil Callahan showed that all molecules are antennae, Björn Nordenström showed that our body operates on basis of an integral electrical system; Herbert Fröhlich showed how electromagnetism operates the cellular material molecular dynamics. There are many others who showed that our body needs to be understood beyond the models of physics and chemistry. Our body can be compared to a supercomputer, in which the materials are all produced, by cells, to interact with information.
Our body is integral part of nature, but also our handle on our involvement with nature; as creators in creation.
The art of life lies in the skill of being able to interact with our context. All cultures, each in their own way, have tried to describe how
The act of living lies in engaging with our environment and each other, via or body.
It is fascinating how the movements of the body as a whole can be, and need to be traced back to the dynamics of the cell.
It can be traced back to molecules, thus the atoms. Not just the DNA, but in fact all cell materials. The DNA has been built op, over the aeons, as Lynn Margulis and you have pointed out. Other authors in this book, Science of Life, describe this in more detail. The conclusion however is that the essence of life lies not in matter, but in the ability to interact with matter, and to interfere with its ‘inert’ nature.
Classical science has peered into, and pondered over, the inert aspect of matter in many manners. It has at some time simplified its scope and reduced its scale by excluding all those situations where matter is not inert. The result however has been that nature has become to be regarded as if dead; an ‘inert’, ‘solid’, ‘object’. The scientists have disregarded themselves, both as creators of science and as subject of its description. The result has been that science, to a large extent, has become represented as the study of dead matter - which does not help health science, agriculture, the case for animals and Earth. All are in ever worse shape, because they are all regarded and treated as if dead matter.
In this book, it is possible to propose the transformation which you presented in your presentations and publications. There, you describe it as the interplay between the biological context of the living cell, in the form of (both) the environment and the body. In this case the same can be said for the context of the science of life and the science of matter as the cultural Social) and material (earth). It is not just the complement of the yinn and the yang, but the complement of the carrier wave and the signal wave, of a radio signal, or the laser beam and the dispersed field in a hologram. The atoms therein represent the physical (inert) substrate; the cells however make use of that to organise information. Over billions of years, life forms are ever more able to incorporate and express the information field, via matter.
Life is about the incorporation and expression of that what matter lacks, but life offers. What matter lacks, if freedom of choice. What life offers is the opportunity to experience and express variation in/to manifestation: creation.
It is all about the experience of life, rather than the description of it. Again: the parallel between the carrier wave (the body) and the signal wave (the mind). But instead of saying that proof of existence lies in the measurement of matter, it makes more sense to say that it is the experience of creation of life which matters. Because as soon as the information field in the body decays and collapses, the physical material of the body collapses also. In fact, the body materials are not material at all, but merely carriers of information. All body materials interchange, from one phase state to the other, in the body.
The understanding that DNA is assembled, sculpted by the mantle protein is but one part of the story. What makes it possible? Whay is the principle? In which way is that principle the means that we can interact with the environment, the universe as a whole?
Vanessa Hill describes in this book how there is a logic, a geometry, underlying the assembling of the molecules of life.
Peter Rowlands describes in this book that the same logic can be described as an algebra; based on the concept of replication; as for DNA.
Diego Rapoport adds the insight that mind and body can both e described in terms of a vortex.
Suzy Vrobel adds to that the insight that in life (and cell replication) it helps to describe time as a fractal.
Bill Tiller offers a combination of these realisations, in the harmonics of the electro-magnetic and magneto-electric fields at the system boundary.
Walter Schempp provides the insight that there is a way to establish, achieve the balance between the two fields; and resolve uncertainty in the relationship between them.
Roel van Wijk has studied the interplay between the light field and the physical field of the body.
Cyril Smith describes the complement of the electromagnetic (antennae) properties of the molecules of life, in the electromagnetic signatures (homeopathy) and their circulation in the body (meridians).
Jan van der Greef describes the circulation of the body molecules (Metabolomes), the communication cycles which form counterpart of the dynamics of DNA ‘inscription’.
Lynn Margulis has described how these cycles of Metabolomes can be understood to be the ongoing communication, via protein strands, of cells in symbiosis.
Bert Verveen has given the general understanding of the cohesion/coherence of our body: health is based on the integrity of the communication cycles between cells and organs; we can extend this to understand the cohesion between people(s) and all life forms.
Evidently there are other perspectives which can be added to the integral picture. This book is only a starting point for the study of the science of life, in which our involvement always matters.
The integration of/in the Science of Life that is an essential key for the understanding how we are (un)able to deal with the experiences of life; and how our body learns: adopts and adapts.
What really matters is how we operate freedom of choice; which we can now understand and describe in great detail. It is not the description but the experience which matters.
DNA replication and its variation, and the development of ever more self-conscious life forms, is not just part of the development of humans and humanity, but of all life forms and Earth.
I invite you to write a chapter summarising your work and findings:
- What gave you the idea to look for the role of proteins in cell communication, and find it?
- How did your understanding take shape; what helped you?
- Having discovered the concept; how does it help you - and us all?
- How do you see that this understanding can be of help for understanding the Science of Life, in and beyond how it already helped me as I described above?
I ask you to condense your insight in 6 pages of text, plus 4 pages for images, diagrams, tables art work; Half a page of with for references to your web site and (for the Science of Life) relevant writings.
