Dr Bruce Lipton: Biology of Perception 5of7- Your Genes are NOT your Destiny

June 11, 2009

“When a gene product is needed, a signal from it’s environment activates that gene.” Your environment can selectively mutate your genes if your environment is expressing signals that you can’t produce protein for.

“When a gene product is needed, a signal from it’s environment, NOT an emergent property of the gene itself, activates expression of that gene.”

Inside the nucleus of a cell is 50% Protein 50% DNA. Protein is what controls the DNA and until recently it hasn’t been studied.

Protein forms a sleeve around DNA.

Primacy of the Environment: An environmental Signal changes the shape of the regulatory protein by exposing the DNA from the protein sleeve allowing it to copy itself via mRNA and producing a specific protein. It’s the environment that selects your genes.

Perception controls genes.


Nucleic acids are replicated with conspicuous fidelity. Infrequently, however, they undergo changes in sequence, and this process of change (mutation) generates the variability that allows evolution. As the result of studies of bacterial variation, it is now widely believed that mutations arise continuously and without any consideration for their utility. In this paper, we briefly review the source of this idea and then describe some experiments suggesting that cells may have mechanisms for choosing which mutations will occur.

Your environment can selectively mutate your genes if your environment is expressing signals that you can’t produce protein for.


ROLE OF DNA: Bruce Lipton – Biology of Perception 4 of 7

Our perception is a stimulus response NOT caused our genes. It is caused by awareness of our environment by a specific receptor that triggers a physical response by a specific effector.

Perception controls behavior.

The behavior of our cells is NOT programed. Our behavior is continually responding to our perception of our environment.

ROLE OF DNA: Blueprint for how to make proteins. Genes DO NOT self activate. Genes CAN NOT turn themselves on or off. There is no such thing as a cancer gene. If there were cancer genes you would get cancer before you were born as soon as your cells would start dividing.

We are controlled by our responses to our environment.

Learn more about cellular biology in 10 minutes than most college graduates will ever know.

If you are a pencilneck it’s because your training and nutrition is of pencilneck quality. Stop blaming your parents.

If the genes control biology, then at least 120,000 genes would be required to make a human. but when the human genome projects results were in, … it was discovered that 2/3rds of the genes (needed to support their model) were missing. Its not that the genes were missing, it was the understanding that was wrong.

Perception is Reality

“Better keep yourself clean and bright. You are the window through which you must see the world.” – George Bernard Shaw

Our brains are only capable of understanding a small fraction of what is really going on in our world. The cleaner we live and the brighter our outlook the more intuned we will become.
