Edward Arroyo Posted almost 4 years ago Elizabeth Murchison: Fighting a contagious cancer Dr. Bruce Lipton, an accomplished biologist (see: The Biology of Belief, The Wisdom of Your Cells), points out that while the scientific community was immersed in the quest for the holy grail in the Genome Project, they failed to notice while stripping away protein to get to the DNA that they were discarding a critical component for understanding the secret of Life. For forty years the discarded protein never figured into the consideration of how life lives. Dr. Lipton puts forth in his books a powerful argument for culture, or the environment, as being a critical player in the process of life. And, that it's our 'perception' (as a neurological descendent of 'action/reaction,' 'stimulus/response,''instinct/intuition.') that determines our ability to live, and survive: that this awareness determines the degree to which we are able to respond appropriately to the ever-changing, ever-evolving environment. For the inability to have clear perception determine the degree to which we cause dis-ease. And if this dis-ease is not addressed, it will lead to extinction. So, part of the moral to this story is back to our world, our environment,... our garden. Not just Earth, but the plants and animals - and, yes, fellow humans - and how we treat and respect it all. Consequently, when we abuse each of these things, it causes stress - in all systems. And our ability to respond is diminished - and so is our resilience (our ability to come back). Our immunity suffers and we become susceptible to other stronger biology to invade and conquer its host. Sounds like a virus to me... Oh, yeah, and how about cancer?
