Works with water too.
It’s not a spiral, a spiral expands more with every rotation. It’s a helix, which has the same circumference all the way.
Also, something really strange about human dna in particular is that some of the chromosomes are fused together in a unique way, leaving room for additional complexity without a longer dna “code.” Also, we have lots and lots of unused dna. Even dna “strands,” only two are active, which makes that “ladder” shape. But there are more “strands” which are unused. Really weird.
@ Joseph — That’s a pretty interesting experiment with the rice in water (and yes, rice does have DNA). Try some repeat experiments, see if this can stand up to the scientific method.
Honestly though, I’m skeptical when it comes to human emotions having a direct, almost telekinetic impact on other living things in the vicinity. But I’ve heard of this other guy, Cleve Backster, who, in the sixties, tried something pretty similar to what you’re trying.
He hooked a lie detector up to some plants and then observed that negative thoughts were picked up by the plant. I think he thought about burning the plant, for instance, and the plant’s reaction showed up on the lie detector.
Here’s his wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleve_Backster
And here’s the actual published article on this experiment: http://www.rebprotocol.net/clevebaxter/Evidence%20of%20a%20Primary%20Perception%20In%20Plant%20Life%2023pp.pdf
This guy’s experiment didn’t stand up to repeat experiments. So, although I would love to believe that things like plants and rice can actually directly feel human emotion, I’ll need a bit more convincing. Which is why I would love to see you set up some repeat experiments (who knows what sort of bacteria might have already been present in the “hate” jar before the experiment?)
I’m currently reading a book called Genome. It will answer many of the questions you are asking in an easy to understand way. You should check it out.
“During an organisms growth phase from embryo to adult some of the DNA’s instructions remain inactive until the requisite level of maturity has been reached, at which point they are stimulated into action.”
If DNA is reprogrammed, and changed through thought, then what really causes cancer?
Is the food we put into ourselves, that are chemically altered causing it too? Maybe the chemically altered DNA of our food, is interacting with our dna, and causing major issues. It’s like playing with fire with alcohol.
“It is only in exceptional circumstances that DNA’s message becomes transformed in such a way that a new variety or even species appears on the planet”
The serpents instruction to eve. Eat the fruit. Get knowledge. Learn.
In passover..they tell you for 7 days you shall not have leaven in your house. No leaven in your bread. The word leaven came from the greek word enzumous, which means Enzyme.
Really, it all makes sense. The problem arose when we went from using language metaphorically, because we had no other options as humans, to the language we use now, that is very well defined. It’s an obvious mistake, and people couldn’t have foreseen it.
What did moses use to part the sea? His rod (lawl) but later in the story, that rod turned into a serpent. (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.
