We may think we know a lot, but the things we think we know and hold to be true are always changing. Science was no less valid to us 50 years ago than it is today, but theories have changed because we have learned more. And our knowledge of DNA has just changed again, as physicists have confirmed that there is a second layer of information hidden in our DNA, meaning that there is more than one way that DNA mutations can affect us.
The way DNA folds plays a role in controlling which genes are expressed inside of our bodies. When it comes to biology, we’re taught that DNA ‘makes us who we are’ through a sequence of letters. These codes would then determine which proteins to make in order to produce the necessary result. For example, there is a code for a protein that will make your skin brown, or your eyes dark, etc. All of this is determined by the way DNA is folded. Since the DNA in our body is extremely long, spanning a length of up to two metres, it has to be wrapped and folded in a certain way to fit inside of our bodies.
Scientists have known for a long time that the way it is wrapped and folded determines what proteins are expressed. Right now, biologists are currently working on isolating mechanical cues that determine how DNA is folded, which is influenced by a number of environmental factors, and other concepts like epigenetics. Even the way we think and perceive the environment, how feel, and what we believe can shape our DNA.
Some of these mechanical cues have been identified by a group of scientists at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Led by Helmut Schiessel, they were, as Science Alert explains, “able to show that these cues affected how the DNA was folded and which proteins are expressed – further evidence that the mechanics of DNA are written into our DNA, and they’re just as important in our evolution as the code itself.”
Is The Genetic ‘Tweaking’ Of Humans On Its Way/Already Here?
Genetic manipulation is already occurring, and in fact we recently published an article about the first human being to have their DNA manipulated to make their white blood cells 20 years younger (you can read more about that here). And all my research into black budget programs suggests that human genetic engineering is already happening to further militaristic agendas. The evidence for the existence of multiple super soldier programs and other, equally frightening projects is compelling, but that’s a discussion for another article, as is the black budget topic that’s linked above.
Today, it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s not, and it’s unfortunate that it takes a mainstream media outlet to acknowledge something before the masses consider it to be real. That’s a tremendous amount of power to hold, and we know the media has been corrupted by financial, corporate and other elitist agendas. (This is a much broader topic than I wish to address in this article, however; you can learn more about it in this article we published on the it.)
It really is fascinating to imagine what we may be capable of. Perhaps one day we will eradicate all disease by learning how to manipulate our genetics, turning certain genes on and others off, even discovering new ones. What if there is already an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization out there somewhere in the universe which has learned to tweak their DNA so they can live for hundreds of years?
The future of genetic manipulation holds endless possibilities, and while many people worry about the consequences of us playing God, I argue that perhaps these types of discoveries were just waiting there for us to stumble upon, and our natural progression toward these discoveries was all part of ‘the plan,’ if there is one. Perhaps we create it ourselves.
One thing is for certain though — as with any new discovery, it does not matter what we find or what technology we develop, it’s the consciousness and intention behind how we use this knowledge that matters. Our history of innovation has been consistently marred by violence and the misuse of power, so I can only hope we are approaching a more peaceful era at this stage of our development.
