I got to meet Craig Venter yesterday(a book review of 'A Life De-Coded'), and though 'nervous', I tried to convey that 'G-d' really is in our D.N.A., and 'Man' should not be manipulating the Genetic Codes of Life(this during the 'Q' & 'A' session).
This book review may have been equal to the Brian Greene one a few years back('Elegant Universe')- another time I was able to 'get in the last question'- "aren't we really looking for 'G-d' when we search Space(inner or outer)".
Anyway, Mr. Venter defied my prior feelings of the type person I thought he was, and I found him to be very likeable actually(even 'humble'),, and not the type individual that I thought would fit the category of 'Mad Scientist/Geneticist', etc.
I found him truly fascinating, his life experiences 'immense' in breadth.
Curiously, he answered "No", when I commented about what many Bio-Ethicists have warned against, when I asked "is it 'sane' to be playing around with genetic modifications?" Obviously he must, but maybe the 'keyword' is 'Play'.
*'Definition of 'G-d':(this is where the 'VMAT-2' Gene comes into the picture)
'The God Gene' by Dean Hammer, names this paticular Gene as being specific toward having some unusual quality that 'connects' Spiritual Transcendence experiences, and in conjunction with similar insights by other reknowned authors with backgrounds in such as Venter and Hammer(such as Dr. Leonard Horowitz), these other authors(such as Gregg Bradden) input their own knowledge of Spiritual Matters, and offer a comprehensive incorporation of concepts which cross over multi-disciplinary sectors, so to tie in 'G-d' to the Equation of Life(even 'inserting' His infinite presence into our D.N.A. as a manifestation of both 'Acoustics & Light'/'Sono-Luminescence', etc)..
'The audience patiently awaits this 'Definition'.............
I guess my point is my confusion as to how almost everyone on this website who claims they believe in 'Science'(and all its 'Laws'), cannot fathom from whence those same laws arose. Its like if 'they can't touch it'(i.e.= see it in their microscopes, etc), then its 'not there', doesn't exist- yet, we all know that no 'Finality' is on the horizon with regard to any 'Grand Unified Field Theory', nor the 'Progenerator like Particle' from which all other particles arose.
Point is that 'No Final Truth' to the 'whats' and the 'whys' of Life are near our horizon of understanding(let alone our ability/capability to find it).
And that is the Point, we know we don't know a whole lot, and knowing this should be indication enough to any 'honest intellect' that this 'Final Truth'/'Final Law', is beyond 'Knowing'- and probably wasn't meant to be known(because we'd only mess things up- history shows this repeatedly).
'G-d' is always ten steps ahead in Time, He is the Aleph, and we are but the Fractal. 'PHI', and its Ratio's prove this, and 'PHI' is known as 'G-ds' Infinite Finger-print'- and its in our D.N.A., and the *'Universal Tree of Life' has its own D.N.A.--- we are but *'Endo-Symbiants' within.
*I also believe that the 'Prime Number Code' mystery, is directly connected to this Phylogenetic Tree of Life(its an 'Adaption Code' of growth in this 'Symbiotic Network' of 'exo' and 'endo' Symbiosis of 'Emergent Life' and how it relates to Thermo-Dynamics).
'VMAT-2' Gene is not the Answer, because if it was, then 'X' ing it out of your Genome would mean 'no connection to G-d'.
The 'Answer' to the 'Question'................................."it's what is Universally present"(Sound and Light).
1,000 years from now(or 10 Gigazillion), its always going to be Sound and Light.
The Universe is a Genetic Construct of Sound and Light D.N.A.(and it obeys 'PHI').
There is 'No Junk D.N.A.', and Germ-Line Modifications and Trans-Genetic 'Concoctions'( ) are going to wreck havoc.
'Mirrors': Sound and Light(echo and reflection); "Do Not mess with D.N.A."!!
*The real 'G-d' Code is 'Karma', please keep off His Turf, His Immune System is 'Inviolate',,, our actions are not.
Desecration of the 'NAME'(the '42' letter ineffable NAME) will lead to our total destruction.
'Ark of the Covenant', it was about this '42'(there is no physical 'Ark', its the Rainbow).
