I don’t know how to start this discussion but I really want to talk about how weird DNA is. It’s a spiral? a double helix? it’s made with 4 chemicals (GTCA) it’s like a spiral ladder?? Not to mention that there’s millions and millions of these strands collectively in all our cells.
And how about chromosomes. little X shaped (and Y in males) DNA constructed codes of stringular information which is supposed to hold genes from our ancestors?
And also, I have experimented with what I heard is this outside force around us that reacts with DNA (I think it’s some kind of light, but I have no reason to think this). Like say you love someone, as long as you feel this love, you will be more open to getting a better reaction in your DNA from your environment. In my experiment this was true, but I have yet been able to replicate my results. A new test is being started by my friend and I may have better info later.
So anyways, DNA is strange and whenever I think about it I can’t help but picture a huge (huge) 4 dimensional landscape (if you know what a tesseract is this may help to understand) and then inside was a bunch of spiral waves interacting with eachother, until after 4 times and lots of years of sharing genes…. we get a highly evolved and self aware species (compared to MOST other animals) and it exists in these huge amount of spiraling DNA.
And how is it that we replicate our DNA?

Wow wow! great stuff everyone!
@Austin A repeat experiment is in the making :)
@Alex Holy! those are interesting connections. The bible has always seemed like such a crazy ridiculous story with such profound meaning but the way it is preached is often always so stupidly. It was written by men not god.
You say DNA can be reprogrammed through thought? Can this actually be done? :o
A lot of that DNA is actually viral DNA. Over the period of our existence, viruses have been injecting their DNA into ours, with no discernible effects, nevertheless it’s still there. It’s strange to think that a good portion of our DNA isn’t even human in origin. WEIRD.
Yeah, they’re called “introns,” formally. I asked my science teacher the same thing, like seriously? They don’t do anything? He wasn’t able to answer me. I was pissed. In any case, they aren’t used and are in many cases cut out when used when dealing with RNA/protein synthesis, if I’m not mistaken.
Due to mutations such as base additions and substitutions for the CATG, genome possibilities are truly infitite if sexual reproduction keeps occurring. And I mean, radiation messes with people’s genes… there’s that too I guess. and probably other things my mind cannot summon at this moment.
@alex, we change the expression of our dna.
also, there was a video on here that talks specifically about how love and fear affect the expression of DNA.
20 minutes, and it needs your full attention. it’s some sciency shit.
there are a couple of theories about introns, but so far we don’t have much conclusive evidence.
background: DNA is transcribed to pre-mRNA. pre-mRNA is then cut up into three pieces. the middle piece you keep and its called the exon the introns are junk. the exon is now just called mRNA. some other stuff happens and you get proteins which are essential for everything keeping you alive, but i’m not gunna go in depth into that.
Alternative splicing of introns within a gene acts to introduce greater variability of protein sequences translated from a single gene, allowing multiple related proteins to be generated from a single gene and a single precursor mRNA transcript.
