The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles

3.75
The Biology of Belief is a groundbreaking work in he field of New Biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and that of other leading-edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The ramifications of his research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton 's profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.

Lipton is a cell biologist whose “ study of cells turned [ him ] into a spiritual person. ” This is a highly readable science book, defining how beliefs control behavior and gene activity, and thus the unfolding of our lives.

It was going very logical and as expected from a scientist with a spiritual awakening until I hit the last chapter.

He preaches that QM is the key to understanding life and it is being hidden by from the public, largely by the nterests of the drug industry.

His sudden leap from " the environment has an effect on gene expression " to " mystical energy and the subconscious mind control everything " is alarming and not well explained or reasoned.Everything falls apart completely with his Addendum.

He really ties everything together and gives great metaphorical examples for laypeople like me so that we an continu to nderstand the complex machinations, not only of the cell, but of how it is related to quantum physics and what he calls Systems Biology.

Lipton believes that the Neo-Darwinian adherence to the heory of survival of the fittest characterizes life in competition, whereas at the cellular level, there is complex communication and collaboration—strength in numbers.

I could ’ t wait to hear his ideas on how to do tha! ” Lipton explains how we have two minds: the subconscious mind for processing vast amounts of information in the present moment ( including habits and beliefs) and the subconsciou mind that has the ability to learn from the past and plan the future.

He states how difficult it is to change subconsciously acquired habits and beliefs.

So, Bruce Lipton is not a psychologist.

Though The Biology of Belief was a remarkably good book ( so deliciously over my head that it deserves a second read) and so well-referenced throughout—it leaves me shocked that it led to this singular reference on the application of his theorie.

The parts about new biology were interesting, but i just do not think that the write ad a strong enough understanding of the other topics to adequately tie them together.

rated it

ome of the experimental results he points to are incredibly weak and superficial ( DNA methylation rates) and his attempt to involve quantum mechanics by including it in a later chapter like an afterthought in order ( I kno) to make everything seem deeper and more metaphysical was a ridiculously poor choice.

rated it

his rustration was further fueled by reading some reviews and realizing how easily people are drawn in by hollow pseudoscience and some fancy terms that are used in the hopes that the reader does n't ctually know what they mean and believes the authors' version instead.
