Can your DNA change?

A fascinating discussion yesterday inspires me to write this long over-due blog on the topic of “the possibility of blue print change”.

Being dedicated to the study of TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) and fusing old wisdom into modern applications based on current science confronts me often with either inherited stubborn perspectives or even a dismissive attitude towards a stunning reality of physical possible changes: Many ancient theories are now fingerprinted in laboratories and provide results that require modern understandings of physics to embrace a new layer of possibilities – the limitations of physical life as we understand it today could possibly be altered by influences that are not materialistic. Henceforth opening the perception that not all phenomena are a result of material (matter) interaction.

Sure, most of us would say “we know…” but as a physisist, biochemist, researcher or anyone dedicated to conclusively understand how matter interacts and changes, a simple “agreeing” is not a scientific acceptable result.

In the discussion yesterday I was confronted with an old perception of DNA being the manifested single reality of your unique inborn coding of “what you are”. Although in the last twenty years we have slowly adapted to the scientifically respected notion that indeed ones personal DNA can alter during a lifetime (disregard the fact that aging protein weakens and cell formations disrupt…) – there are unique studies that exposed significant changes in DNA coding of people that seemingly defies standard principle. External influences like radiation and the constant consumption of poison will change sequences and RNA mutational zipper outcome with original DNA can cause trouble in cell splitting. I am talking about the “impossible” changes that are now studied: When dead heart tissue has re-grown of patients without the influence of hematopoietic cell transplantation. (human altered cells from DNA foreign donor zipped with damaged RNA of receiver to correct or alter the disrupted mutation) The hard to comprehend DNA changes that occur after gemline DNA insists or resists the change of eye color, or to mark  expected inherited codings: We are aware that people self-altered parts of their sequences – mid life!

I edged on the discussion; a fascinating topic on the notion that DNA memory could trigger a methaphysical experience. I was explained that because we are by DNA partially designed by the ancestry hereditary protein formation this inherited “code of information” would bound us so strongly with our ancestry that my friend was convinced he had “déjà vu” like “feelings”  – committed of having experienced something that through the discussion warped into either soul, feelings or even “unexplained reality”…

I’m troubled when “God” or “soul” ends up in discussions, it really pulls the floor of reality from beneath… (or above?) and makes for very confusing debates. Indeed the topic quickly drained into: “you don’t see that, do you”  and the silly dismissive notion: “ what school did you go to…?”

It ended with “…you cant belief this, can you?” I loath conclusive questions that impose the answer.

I belief it! I actually was convinced as a child that everything was fluid, all formable, water, stone and minerals. Fire contains water, as does water contain fire and the “magic” was the interchangeability of  all matter even with the unexplained what we often call “feelings”.  Later in life I learned that the emotions did trigger physical reactions, causing the burning of energy and expressing itself in blushing, euphoria, skin hives or causing us to buckle or wheep!

Whilst this is known in TCM for thousands of years, it challenges modern science to “formulate” it at least into a mathematically acceptable algorithm, that in itself is just a tool to express the unexplained, but it seems to comfort the curious that there is a matter on which there is a code that expresses the phenomena.

In conclusion: Your DNA is not predetermined a sequence that would tell us your life by birth. (Besides we only understand about 2% of the whole chain…) Since you are in matter, what you eat, inhale, see and impressed by the living circumstances of your territory and the choices you make – you have a dominant connection to yourself and within you can manipulate and indeed implicated significant the outcome of your coding’s destiny.

For my next discussion, the mere fact I feel insulted is hard to express in physical matter, but I do understand in such moments why others feel an urge to translate their emotion into a notion. I went home! Either way I awoke this morning happily realizing none of this changes my DNA.
