Cells and Regeneration
Another exciting area of scientific discovery has
to do with stem cells -- the cells from when we were just little embryos
in our mothers womb, the cells that just couldnt decide who
to be when they grew up! Its interesting that the Kryon group has
suggested we return to a time before we were ill physically, or just ill-at-ease,
and imagine a time when we were health especially since these cells are
baby cells just waiting for information about where theyre
needed. Indeed, it has been shown that stem cells from the brain can turn
into bone marrow cells,25 stem cells from
the peripheral nervous system can home in on brain-tumor cells,26
and embryonic cells can repair spinal cord damage.27
Jeez, recently two research teams have independently isolated seemingly
immortal human stem cells that can give rise to any cell type
in the body!!28
In addition, information concerning biological clocks is just exploding.
For instance, a recent search on Science Daily Online showed 980 hits
on the topic. Researchers are finding that not only does every Earth organism
investigated so far show evidence of these body clocks,29,
30, 31 but that these light-sensitive clocks are found throughout
the cellular structure of every organism studied, including humans.32,
33 This means that many of Earths living creatures (if not
all) work off a clock set by the light of our sun, and that while these
clocks were thought to once be located almost exclusively by sensors located
in the eyes and brain, theyve been shown to pervade each cell. And
light is not the only thing which drives the clocks, but also temperature
and body memory! Yet something else is going on. Cell suicide
is also being studied, where cells will self-destruct after replicating
so many times (like a Xerox copy of a copy).34
On top of this, there is evidence that seemingly single-celled organisms
such as bacteria will act in concert as if coordinating complex behaviors
such as migration and survival under stress.35
Human stem cells seem to change at will. Biological clocks
are seen to exist throughout Earths living creatures. Intelligent
cell suicide is apparent during aging. Even seemingly unrelated
organisms at the single-cell level communicate and present a united front!
I suppose, then, it shouldnt surprise me that in an 1998 issue of
Science magazine it was shown that there is a wide-spread slowing down
of the aging process from worms, to humans, to insects, to yeast!36
We are seeing an exponential increase in the level of understanding
of what life is all about around us, including our own biology. SOMETHING
IS GOING ON!
If single-cell bacteria communicate and work in unison, surely does every
cell in our bodies (sound familiar?). If stem cell research shows regeneration
in action, then it must interact with the body clocks we all have
the very clocks which tell our cells how many times theyve reproduced
and when its time to self-destruct (that is, age). And this information
is being released to every living organism on the planet, since EVERYTHING
has slowed down its aging! Whew!

Biological (Neural) Computers
Okay. Im wearing myself out. Let me wrap this all up by providing
a few extra pieces of information the Kryon group has mentioned over the
years. They have made it clear on a few occasions to look to our own biology
as the next step in advancing our technology, most notably computers.
Two really cool pieces of information jumped out at me: 1) the very structure
of DNA (a double helix) has been used by researchers at the University
of California, San Deigo to create very fast room-temperature superconductors,37
and 2) molecular material on microchips (again modeled on DNA and RNA)
are being developed to aid in further miniaturization of computers.38
However, while this is really neat stuff, I still await notice that someone,
somewhere will find evidence of fast information transfer based on fine-tuned,
local electromagnetic pulses where the wires dont touch
each other (just like the human brain). The closest Ive seen so
far is a recent release concerning quantum computing where
close to instantaneous communication occurs (here we go with the speed
of light thing, again).39
Last but not least, I present stuff that Lee Carroll really got excited
about when he ran across a magazine article some time after the Kryon
group had mentioned it specifically, that we look for natural,
organic ways in which to eat away our waste (although I admit
Lee gets excited most times he gets scientific confirmation like this!).
A superbug bacteria was identified that is able to eat nuclear
waste.40 In experiments conducted by Larry
Wackett of the University of Minnesota, it was found that the bacteria
Deinococcus radiodurans were able to attack solvents such a toluene and
chlorobenzene, commonly used as carrier fluids for radioactive materials
with little to no damage to the bacteria itself.41
In addition (and Im not making this up, folks), Wackett found that
this bacteria placed in a high-energy gamma ray field were able to attack
these same pollutants with the same efficiency as their brothers and sisters
exposed to no radiation, leading some to suggest its a bacteria
from outer space!
And with that, it seems weve come full circle, and Ive run
out of steam. It has been a pleasure to provide this little article. I
hope you all enjoyed it!
