Many scientists are challenging the idea that we humans have more than two or even three strands of DNA.
Some even believe that we may have a total of 12 strands or more. DNA is the acronym used for deoxyribonucleic acid. It contains the codes that act like a blueprint, giving instructions to cells and telling them how to behave. Most DNA is found in the cell nucleus (nuclear DNA), while a small amount is found in the mitochondria (mDNA).
The conventional DNA model is believed to carry the informational code made from four chemical bases. There are about 3 billion bases in the average human DNA and over 99 percent of DNA is the same in all people. This means that a very small portion, less than one percent of DNA, differs from person to person.
Most of us are aware of the two strands DNA model that is formed when nucleotides are arranged in two long strands, forming a spiral called a double helix. The structure of the double helix looks somewhat like a ladder. The way DNA is structured allows it to store more than 700 terabytes of information in a single gram of DNA. That is pretty amazing!
Scientific evidence of three and four strands of DNA
A few years ago, geneticists officially acknowledged the first case of a child with three strands of DNA. This child, named Alfie Clamp, was a two year old boy who became the only person in the world to be diagnosed with three DNA strands. Unfortunately, he was born blind and with severe disabilities. Recently, a Cambridge study is now suggesting that four strands (quadruple helix) of DNA also exist within humans. Some geneticists even believe that the human body has the potential to carry 12 strands of DNA.
There is a large group of geneticists that believes humans are going through a leap of evolution, which is why our DNA is changing faster than normal. These geneticists claim that we are evolving but they aren’t sure what we are evolving into. Some of the 97 percent of our “junk DNA” is also becoming more active, which could be one of the reasons why we are becoming more intuitive and intelligent.
This mutation of DNA from a double helix into a quadruple helix is predicted to have many affects on human life, including added perception and awareness. These mutations could affect our complete awareness as human beings and help us understand one of our most fundamental questions, how was life created or what is the origin of life?
Is DNA the key to spiritual enlightenment?
Many spiritual teachers believe that the activation of our higher strands of DNA will allow our body to process more data and expand our consciousness. The human brain is a miraculous organ that still contains a lot of mysteries. Did you know that a healthy human brain can process more than 400 billion bits of information per second? Did you also know that we are only consciously aware of 2,000 of those 400 billion bits of information at any given time. In other words, our conscious mind allows us to be aware of roughly 1 percent of reality. This means that the rest of the information of reality is processed by our subconscious.
Some geneticists suggest that there is more to DNA than just storing genetic information. They believe that by activating our DNA beyond the two strands, it allows us to anchor high frequency energies that can heal and change our body. As a result, our lifespan could increase and we may even activate certain dormant abilities, such as clairvoyance and telepathy.
There isn’t a concrete way of telling what these mutations in our DNA will bring, but it is essential that we acknowledge the changes of our genes and the evolution of our species, so we can understand why these changes are happening. If scientists and spiritual teachers are correct, then we may be evolving to have three strands of DNA and activating the higher strands could be the key to enlightenment.
