Ammon’s Horn

Hippocampus (1)Lying in the middle of the brain is part of the temporal lobe called the Ammon's horn (Amuns Horn) or the hippocampus. In neuroanatomy, Ammon's horn is a metaphor that relates to the gods and the brain.

Ammon's horn is the hidden creator, king of the gods, and the lord of the thrones of the world. Amun is 'The hidden one.'" Lord of the visible and the invisible worlds, he was the mysterious soul of the universe which reveals itself in light. (more…)

Amon – King of Gods and Lord of Thrones

Amun"The Amen, the true and faithful witness," Rev. i. 14.

Amon (Ammon, Amun or Amen) is "The Hidden One" who is "King of the Gods," and the "Lord of the Thrones" of the visible and the invisible worlds. The "Creator God" who was the mysterious soul of the universe which reveals itself in light. Amon is the light, creator, builder and grand architect of the house and temple. Amon is the Hi-Ram, and those of you that are familiar with Freemasonic allegories and history, can relate Amon to the Hiram Abiff of Solomon's Temple.

"The Hidden One" who is "King of the Gods" and the "Lord of the Thrones" is not some God you will find outside of yourself in the heavens or carved onto an idolatrous stone by the grand architect of the Universe. Nor will you find this Grand Master inside of a Freemasonic lodge. Au contraire Solomon! This God is hidden deep within you and you must Know Thyself in order to find the mysterious Creator God who is the hidden one, King of Gods and the Lord of "Your" Throne.

The throne where King Amon is located is in Ammon’s Horn or the hippocampus situated in your house, or what is more commonly called the head.

Consciousness Does Not Compute (and Never Will)

By Daegene Song - Within some circles in the scientific community, debate rages about whether computers will Brain Illuminated 3achieve technological singularity (TS) or strong artificial intelligence (AI)--in other words, self-recognition or human consciousness within a computer--within the next few decades. Now, however, a Korean quantum physicist has shown that computers will never be able to duplicate human consciousness or be programmed to do so, because they lack the fundamental . . . well, humanity. And his research may finally answer questions that have long stymied brain science researchers. (more…)

Kundalini Awakening Through Sex

In my last article, What is the Kundalini?, I had explained that the kundalini is our central nervous system and also how the Sexual energychemical energy known as phosphorus ascends up the spine via this system to our brains. A properly working central nervous system with the healthy distribution of this powerful chemical energy in our blood known as phosphorus, is one of the most critical alchemical management tools that we humans can utilize to become enlightened, or what some call a "kundalini awakening."

One of the tools that can be used in the awakening of the kundalini or central nervous system activation is sex. Sex is not only the fountain of life it is also the tree of life. The Christ-mas tree with the morning star on top is phosphorus the light bearer that is the most powerful aphrodisiac known to man, and when administered internally, it is one of the most powerful stimulants through a stimulation of the nervous system.

Does your head rule your heart; or your heart rule your head?

By Senan Gil Senan - It is generally assumed that conscious awareness originates in the brain. The Cool-Head-Warm-Heartpremise of this belief is that the brain is special, and different in composition to the rest of the body. It is assumed that the brain rules the body, and defines your personality and who you are. The possibility of a human brain being transplanted into another body has always been seen as complex but feasible. (more…)

Are people with big heads smarter than people with small heads?

"There exists an indisputable connection between the size of the brain and the mental energy displayed by the individualBrain Image man." This quote was made by German anatomist and physiologist, Frederick Tiedmann in 1836. In 2007, the world famous Brazilian geneticist Dr. Sergio Pena called Tiedemann an "anti-racist ahead of his time".

A German neuroanatomist, and physiologist, Franz Gall (1758-1828) was one of the first scientist to study the size of people's heads in relation to their intelligence. After examining the heads of thousands of people, he developed a method of "reading heads" where he concluded that humans with large heads and high foreheads were smarter than others. He published his detailed research on brain function and localization in a book with a long title called "On the Functions of the Brain and of Each of Its parts: With Observations on the Possibility of Determining the Instincts, Propensities, and Talents, Or the Moral and Intellectual Dispositions of Men and Animals, by the Configuration of the Brain and Head."

Who is Baphomet?

baphomet-templars"The terrible Baphomet is, in fact, like all monstrous enigmas of ancient science, nothing more than an innocent and even pious hieroglyph.” - Éliphas Lévi in the 19th century

(Updated on 8/23/2013) - The mysterious origins of the legend Baphomet have been speculated upon by historians and researchers for many hundreds of years. There have been many erroneous claims that have been made, such as Baphomet represents Satan or evil, which is simply not true. My hopes are that the facts below and my previous articles that I have written will help illuminate the truth behind who this "horned god" truly represents.

In my previous article titled, The Meaning of Baphomet, I had detailed that the name Baphomet is derived from the phrase, TEM OHP AB (Temple omnium hominum pads abba), which is simply Latin for “father of the temple, universal peace of men."  TEM OHP AB spelled backwards is where we get the word "Baphomet."

In the book, “The mysteries of magic: a digest of the writings of Eliphas Lévi by Éliphas Lévi and Arthur Edward Waite, it explains the reason why this name was chosen. Éliphas Lévi is also the artist who had given us the best known image of this Idol.

The Baphomets of the Templars, whose names should be spelt kabbalistically backward, is composed of three abbreviations—TEM OHP AB, Temple omnium hominum pads abbas, the father of the temple, universal peace of men. According to some, it was a monstrous head, according to others, a goat-shaped demon. A sculptured casket unearthed in the ruins of an ancient commandry of the Templars was observed by antiquaries to be a baphometic figure, conformable in its attributes to our goat of Mendes and the androgyne of Khunrath. It is bearded, but with the entire body of a woman; in one hand it holds the sun, in the other the moon, joined to it by chains. This virile head is a beautiful allegory which attributes to thought alone, the first and creative cause. The head here represents mind, and the female body matter. The stars, bound to the human form and directed by that nature of which intelligence is the head, have also a sublime significance.

The terrible Baphomet is, in fact, like all monstrous enigmas of ancient science, nothing more than an innocent and even pious hieroglyph.

Let us declare emphatically to combat the remnants of manichaeanism; that Satan, as a superior personality and power, has no existence.

THE DEVIL IN BLACK MAGIC IS THE GREAT MAGIC AGENT EMPLOYED FOR EVIL PURPOSES BY A PERVERSE WILL.

There you have the truth from one of the greatest authorities on Baphomet that the world has ever known. Éliphas Lévi graciously tells us point blank that Baphomet does not represent evil or the man-made entity we know of today as Satan. He clearly states that the image of Baphomet is nothing more than an innocent and even pious hieroglyph. In addition, Levi declares that Satan, as a superior personality and power, has no existence.

33rd Degree Freemason, Albert Pike had written in Morals and Dogma; "The Gnostics held that it [universal agent] composed the igneous [pertaining to fire] body of the Holy Spirit, and it was adored in the secret rites of the Sabbat or the Temple under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet or the hermaphroditic goat of Mendes ." [Pike, op. cit., p. 734, teaching of the 28th Degree]

However, unfortunately, many authors and researchers who have produced books, movies and articles have simply massacred the true meaning of this great horned God. What this has done over time, has just created more confusion to the point today that it appears most people equate Baphomet with evil or Satan, which is simply not true.

Manly P. Hall had written in his book, Dionysian Mysteries and Masonry that the image of Baphomet is NOT a Christian Devil but a symbol of the ancient Alchemists representing Nature and natures God being a Combination & Balance of Male andFemale forces, light and darkness;

“The Goat of Mendes or BAPHOMET whom the Templars were accused of worshipping is a Goat Headed deity, being formed of both male and female principles, with a Caduceus of Mercury in oplace of its Phallus.

One arm points up and one down , with the Latin ' Solve et Coagula' written on them (meaning: ‘flow and ebb’)

This is NOT the image of a Christian Devil but a symbol of the ancient Alchemists representing Nature and natures God being a Combination & Balance of Male andFemale forces, light and darkness, moisture and dryness.

The very principle of Hermes Trismegitus: As Above So Below" is what is symbolized by BAPHOMET..."

If you think this symbol is evil or have been mislead, you are what is called a "non-initiate" who is considered "profane" to the secret mysteries and secret knowledge that is contained in such stories, words or images. As I stated above, this is the whole purpose of the kabbalist and priest scribes who use secret words or allegories in order to conceal the truth from the uninitiated.

Manly Hall had written in Baphomet: The Goat of Mendes (1936);

The practice of Magick – either White or Black -depends upon the ability of the Adept to control the Universal Life Force – that which Eliphas Levi calls the great magical agent or astral light. By the manipulation of this fluidic Essence, the Phenomena of ‘Transcendentalism’ are thus produced.The famous Hermaphroditic (i.e. androgynous, male-female) Goat of Mendes was a Composite Creature formulated to symbolize this very astral Light.

It is identical with BAPHOMET, the mystic Pan Theos (‘god of All Nature’) of those disciples of ceremonial Magick… who probably obtained it from the Arabs.

Baphomet is also a symbol of initiation into the secret mysteries. An idol or hieroglyph that represents the God Amon (Jupiter Amon or Amon-Ra) who is “The Hidden One,” “King of the Gods,” and the “Lord of the Thrones” of the visible and the invisible worlds. In addition, as I stated above, the meaning of Baphomet is “Father of the Temple, universal peace of men." The "father" would be "Amon,"which is known in science as the hippocampus or Ammon's Horn.

Hippocampus

The temple would be your body along with your head etc. As it was said in Egypt; “The body is the house of God,” and one of the many proverbs is “Man, know thyself … and thou shalt know the gods.” When you know thyself, and live in harmony with nature, you are now one with God. Hence, you come to a point of "universal peace of men."

In my articles titled, Ammon’s Horn and Amon – King of Gods and Lord of Thrones, I explained exactly what the God Amon Amons Horns Mosesrepresents and since Baphomet is Amon, this information all ties together. In these articles I detail how each of us humans has Baphomet or a hidden "God Amon" that sits in the middle of the brain that is part of the temporal lobe called the Ammon’s horn (Amuns Horn), also known as the hippocampus. In neuroanatomy, Ammon’s Horn is a metaphor that relates to the gods and the brain.

The image we see today of Baphomet is identified by the image of the ram which is actually one of the most important gods in theJupiter Ammon history of the Egyptian empire. The Egyptian/Greek deity known as Amon (Amon-Ra or Jupiter Amon) is sometimes represented as a ram of a blue color, and sometimes as a man with the horns of a ram, or wearing a cap with two high plumes.

This religion of Amon-Ra is the oldest noted in Egyptian antiquity, with the Amon-Ra priesthood being the most powerful clergy that Egypt has ever known. The God Amon was worshiped under the ram's horns in the East for many thousands of years. The god Amon was tended by the priests of the great Theban temple of Karnak and also worshiped in Mendes, called Banebdjed (Ba of the lord of djed or "the Lord of Mendes"), who was the soul of Osiris.

Thebes was founded in 1500 BC by a Phoenician Prince named Cadmus. The meaning of Thebes is from the word Theba that signifies ‘Ark.’ The capital for their religion was located in the City of Light, or what we know of as Luxor. The God they had worshipped was god Amon-Ra (Jupiter-Amon). At the temple at Luxor there are many Ram Sphinxs that symbolize God Amon Ra.

On the Ptolemaic tablet he is called:

The King of Upper and Lower Egypt, the living spirit of Ba, the living spirit of Shu, the living spirit of Seb, the living spirit of Osiris, the spirit of spirits, the lord of lords, the heir in the city of Tonen (Mendes). In another part of the same text it is said of him: appearing on the horizon with four heads, illuminating heaven and earth, coming as Nile, causing the earth to live, and {giving) the air to mankind.

Jupiter alexander the greatThe Priesthood of Amon-Ra from Egypt were the main inheritors of this secret mystery religion that initiated very famous people such as Alexander the Great who is described in the Bible as a "A Ram on the Rampage"; in Daniel (8:3-4) - "Then I lifted my gaze and looked, and behold, a ram which had two horns was standing in front of the canal. Now the two horns were long, but one was longer than the other, with the longer one coming up last. 4 I saw the ram butting westward, northward, and southward, and no other beasts could stand before him, nor was there anyone to rescue from his power; but he did as he pleased and magnified himself."

The ram's horn since the most ancient times was always a sign of authority, power and dignity. The incarnation of Amon, a curled ram's horn that is known today as a "shofar" was the only natural vocal instrument that the priests were permitted to use as recorded in the scripture. The Israelites and the Levite priests had also used the rams horn or "shofar." The modern Jews today confess their sins in the month of September by blowing a ram’s horn to announce the ceremony which they say drives away the Devil.

The God Amon who was later called Amon-Ra or Jupiter Amon and today is known as Baphomet, is also in ancient Roman jupiter statuereligion and myth. Jupiter (Latin: Iuppiter) or Jove is the king of the gods and the god of sky and thunder. The Romans regarded Jupiter as the equivalent of Greek Zeus, and in Latin literature and Roman art, the myths and iconography of Zeus are adapted under the name Iuppiter. The Latin name Iuppiter originated as a vocative compound of the Old Latin vocative *Iou and pater ("father") and came to replace the Old Latin nominative case *Ious. Jove is a less common English formation based on Iov-, the stem of oblique cases of the Latin name. Linguistic studies identify the form *Iou-pater as deriving from the Indo-European vocative compound *Dyēu-pəter (meaning "O Father Sky-god"; nominative: *Dyēus-pətēr).

The Greek historian Herodotus credits Hesiod and Homer as not only being the first poets of Greece, but also that they had created for the Greeks a genealogy of the gods, which gave the gods their epithets. It appears that Homer and Hesiod had introduced many Gods into Greek mythology with their poetry, and with the end result possibly being that Jupiter Amon got lost in time or was voted out by other new prettier or physically pleasing Gods. Jupiter was the chief deity of Roman state religion throughout the Republican and Imperial eras, until the Empire came under Christian rule. As I stated in my previous articles titled, Isis – Goddess of Darkness, and Chaos and Isis Becomes the Virgin Mary, Christianity is based on the Cult or Religion of Isis that had spread from the East throughout the Roman Empire during the formative centuries of Christianity. The Cult of Isis is now part of the world’s largest religion known today as Catholicism where she is now known as the Queen of Heaven, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

This was when the light of the King of Gods and Lord of Thrones who represents the brightness of the day, Jupiter Amon was isis vulturehidden in the darkness of night under the veil of Isis. The name Isis means “Throne” or “She of the Throne.” Her headdress is frequently shown with a vulture resting on top of her head (throne) with horns holding what appears to be Jupiter Amon. In Egypt she was frequently called Man, and her totem there was a vulture.

If Jupiter Amon is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, then what would this make Isis? Could she be Amon's vulture like Satan (adversary)? Hence, the enemy of man and the light for which she devours by concealing the truth that the God Amon resides upon our thrones under her veil. Isis declares, “I am Isis, the great Goddess, the Mistress of Magic, the Speaker of Spells.”

A myth reported as "Egyptian" in Gaius Julius Hyginus' Poetic Astronomy that Pan in his goat-god aspect — was attacked by the monster Typhon, he dove into the Nile; the parts above the water remained a goat, but those under the water transformed into a fish.

In the book, “Psychology of the Unconscious: A Study of the Transformations and Symbolisms,” by Carl Gustav Jung and Beatrice M. Hinkle, we find the truth; that yes, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords does have an adversary and it appears to be Isis, who is also Typhon.

Isis, the mother of god, played an evil trick on the sun-god with the poisonous snake; also Isis behaved treacherously toward her son Horus in Plutarch’s tradition. That is, Horus vanquished the evil Typhon, who murdered Osiris treacherously (terrible mother= Typhon). Isis, however, set him free again. Horus thereupon rebelled, laid hands on his mother and tore the regal ornaments from her head, whereupon Hermes gave her a cow’s head. Then Horus conquered Typhon a second time. Typhon, in the Greek legend, is a monstrous dragon.

Ammons HornThe Ammon’s Horn had special significance to our ancestors for many thousands of years and one testament of this would be the fact that they had worshiped the image of the ram who was sacred to Amon. This immortal fact can be found in the form of the ancient art that they left behind, that I feel helps prove to us today that they were showing us the  Ammon's Horns. That which is in the same exact locations on our heads where the hippocampus can be found. It is with these ancient images, allegorical stories and modern science, that we can now piece together this amazing story in order for the truth to shine brightly by honoring their great work.

Someday in the not so distant future, will these hidden legends such as the God Amon that were such a large part of Egyptian mythology, they will also become part of modern-day culture as we learn more about the science and power hidden in the mysterious hippocampus that is now coming to light. Facts, such as that of the head and horn of the ram which were symbolic of immortality, memory, activity and creative energy in us humans. Modern day revelations such as the fact that this region of the brain is associated with long-term memory storage and the hippocampal neurons known as place cells that play a major role in causing the sensation of familiarity known as déjà vu and reincarnation. It is said that when a small subset of our hippocampal neurons dies and is reborn; the mind is in a constant state of reincarnation.

The French Déjà vu, in English means "already seen" and it was Plato who had said that déjà vu is a real memory of events Baphometthat took place in a previous existence that proves the theory of reincarnation. Plato held in his beliefs that education was not new learned information, but a real memory of events that took place in a previous life. Platonic epistemology holds that knowledge is innate, so that learning is the development of ideas ... Thus, when something is "learned" it is actually just "recalled. ... The goal of Recollection is to get back to true Knowledge.

The God known today as Baphomet will forever be connected to the Knights Templars. But the facts are that this ram horned God was symbolized long before the advent of the Templars under such names as Amon, Amon-Ba or Ra, Jupiter Amon and also as the infamous pious hieroglyph made famous by Elphias Levi. An image of an ancient deity that is actually a God who resides inside of each and every one of us.

Isn't it time that you connected with “The Amen, the true and faithful witness,” Rev. i. 14 or Baphomet? For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God. - 2 Corinthians 1:20

Magic Mushrooms Can Erase Fear in Mice

Here is a great article from LiveScience.com about magic mushrooms and how they have the ability to erase fear in mice Mushroomstested in the laboratory. I would assume that mushrooms can also do this for people and has many other soul awakening benefits.

(Source: LiveScience.com) - The active ingredient in hallucinogenic mushrooms may erase frightening memories and encourage new brain cell growth in mice, a new study suggests.

Mice given an electric shock, then a low-dose of the hallucinogen psilocybin, lost their fearful response to a sound associated with a painful electric shock much more quickly than mice that didn't receive the drug.

"They stopped freezing; they lost their fear," said study co-author Dr. Juan Sanchez-Ramos, a professor of movement disorders at the University of South Florida.

The findings, published in the June issue of the journal Experimental Brain Research, only apply to mice, but they raise the possibility that low doses of the chemical could one day be used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Hippocampus

Past studies found that psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, could induce mystical experiences that could elevate mood, attitude, and behavior and even permanently alter personality for the better. Other studies show that psilocybin decreases brain activity.  [Trippy Tales: The History of 8 Hallucinogens]

But Sanchez-Ramos and his colleagues wondered about psilocybin's role in the formation of short-term memories. Because the ingredient binds to a receptor in the brain that stimulates new brain cell growth and short-term memory formation, the researchers wanted to investigate how it affected the formation of fearful memories. They expected that psilocybin would help mice form frightening memories more quickly.

Drink Only Distilled Water!

This is a Gnostic Warrior health warning. Our rulers have given us plebs a choice to choose poison or no poison. In 2013 of Distilled waterthe Apocalypse, knowledge is not only power, it is also life and death. - Moe

It is no secret that the most important liquid that we humans intake into our bodies is H2O or water, and as adults our bodies are made of about 70% water. Many people do not understand the fact that the type of water you drink has a huge impact on your health and can actually mean the difference between a longer life or an early death.

Undistilled water is one of the worst things you can intake into your body. Drinking undistilled water is to pure water, what raw pork is to the cooked meat.  It can be our absolute worst enemy, but if we use it externally for things such as bathing, it is our best friend. The reason undistilled water is terrible for your health, is that it contains minerals such as carbonate and other compounds of lime that accumulate in the body and brain and that are very harmful over time. In fact, it can kill you.

Here is a quote from Master Rosicrucian, Max Heindell in Lecture Eight of  The Rosicrucian Christianity Lectures titled, The Science of Nutrition, Health, and Protracted Youth;

More dangerous to man than any food as a clogging and hardening agent of the system is WATER. It does not matter how clear and pure it looks, there is an enormous amount of the lime compounds and magnesia in the best we have, and neither filtration nor boiling will take it out. The amount of mineral in the water is easily determined by the way our teakettle "furs up," and it is a mistake to think that the deposit comes from the water that we pour out of the kettle to make tea or coffee with, for it is the solid remains of the water that has evaporated as steam, the water left is harder if anything.

The only thing that enables us to live beyond childhood is the enormous eliminative power of the kidneys; were it not for them we should be old in infancy, and if we want to preserve health and youth in old age we must cease drinking and cooking with this death-dealing fluid, using for all internal purposes only distilled water which is absolutely free from the injurious lime-compounds.

The water that comes out of our tap is undistilled and also has added other harmful chemicals, such as fluoride that are absolutely terrible for your health.  In fact, drinking this water over time will make you stupid, lethargic, and could easily lead you to an early grave. Hence, take a look around at the American people who are mostly obese and stuck on stupid to witness the long-term health effects caused by diet ignorance. Then when you combine this harmful water intake with harmful food intake, such as GMO foods and a high corn fructose diet, you have a human molotov cocktail just waiting for a heart attack, stroke or black death via cancer.

If you want to put the purest water in your body that is the best for your health, drink distilled water. Distilled water has many of its impurities removed through distillation. Distillation is one method of water purification by boiling the water and then condensing the steam into a clean container. Boiling this tap water , using it for coffee or for soup will not make it pure and distilled. The only way to get clean water is through the distsllation process.

These water facts have been known for over 2,000 years. Examples of this are found in a passage in Aristotle's Meteorologica (II.3, 358b16) and also described by Alexander of Aphrodisias in approximately 200 AD.

You can find distilled water at almost all grocery stores and also undistilled water for those unfortunate people who are uneducated. Hence, our rulers have given us plebs a choice to choose poison or no poison. In 2013 of the Apocalypse, knowledge is not only power, it is also life and death. What's your choice?

Thinking with DNA and Gnosis

Gnosis (Greek for knowledge) in its simplest form is the intuitive spiritual knowledge that comes with knowing thyself. A typeDNA Brain of computer code encoded within each of our own DNA that contains unique "genetic knowledge" or "intuitive insight" that each of us are born with. A computer hard drive in our blood that we can use to help us think, reason, intuit and form knowledge with the help of our very own DNA.

If we are to become genuine Gnostics or people who truly know THYSELF, then we must look to science that is proving our very own DNA plays a large role in who we are. The social engineering that we have endured since birth in this current world plays a major part in "where we are at in life," and our "roles as citizens," but this artificial propaganda and engineering does not define who we truly are inside.

It has already been scientifically proven that we are chemical energy beings inside of material bodies made of skin, bone and blood that is comprised of the very DNA of all our ancestors. These chemical energies and history books that are encoded in our DNA are what we humans tap for Gnosis and intuition. Once you realize this scientific fact, the socially engineered chains of the illusion we live in and the webs of man made vice start to break free from your soul.

The research below details that our health, DNA, thinking, knowledge and Gnosis all work together in determining who we are, how we live and how we die.

THINKING WITH OUR BODIES

We think big. We think out loud. We think outside the box. We think on our feet. But what we don’t do is think entirely inside our heads. Thoughts aren’t confined to our brains — they course through a network that expands to our bodies, perhaps eliminating, at times, the need for complex thought.

The notion that we think with the body — the startling conclusion of a field called embodied cognition — flies in the face of long-standing views. Early cognitive psychologists defined thought as an activity that resides in the brain: Sensory data come in from eyes and ears, fingers and funny bone, and the mind turns these signals into disembodied representations that it manipulates in what we call thinking.

Sure, the body may collect sensory information, like a computer collects information via mouse and keyboard, but according to the traditional view of cognition, it’s the brain that does the thinking.

But dozens of studies over the past decade challenge that view, suggesting instead that our thoughts are inextricably linked to physical experience. As University of Toronto psychologist Spike Lee puts it, bodily states “aren’t some extraneous thing — they’re part of the thinking process.

Also, scientist are now finding out that Thinking may be bad for your DNA;

According to the study by Suberbielle et al. published in this issue of Nature Neuroscience, DSBs are also produced when the brain is at work (during exploration tasks), or when neurons are aberrantly activated during an epileptic seizure or by artificial stimulation by optogenetic techniques. The authors further showed that the DSBs are not produced as a response to stress hormones, but are rather produced by the normal neuronal activation of the NMDA glutamate receptor; a key receptor involved in neuroplasticity

I was thinking that if thinking is bad for your DNA, then would it not make sense that not thinking would be good for your DNA or that thinking loving thoughts would be good for your DNA? Heck, all this thinking is really starting to make my DNA hurt....

My further research into this 'matter' quickly led me to Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School, who in the 1960s had coined the term relaxation response. What Dr. Benson had invented in the 60's is really not a new invention at all, but the simple act of meditating, clearing the mind and relaxing. This would of course be the opposite of bad thinking and the stress response that floods our bodies with poisons, stress hormones, raises our blood pressure and elevates our heart rate. By meditating, we are using the relaxation response method that places us in a state of deep rest, which decreases metabolism, relaxes muscles, slows heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and in term will improve not only our health, but also our DNA.

Here is an article that states, "Emotions Can Change Your DNA";

Cell biologist Glen Rein … and IHM Research Director Rollin McCraty conducted a series of experiments in the early 1990s involving DNA and intentionally generated emotions. A decade later interest in these experiments persisted. After numerous requests, McCraty summarized their data and published the results of the research in 2003 in a brief report titled Modulation of DNA Conformation by Heart-Focused Intention.

"The results provide experimental evidence to support the hypothesis that aspects of the DNA molecule can be altered through intentionality," Rein and McCraty wrote. "To our knowledge, this study was the first to correlate specific electrophysiological modes with the ability to cause changes in a biological target (DNA) external from the body. The data indicate that when individuals are in a heart-focused, loving state and in a more coherent mode of physiological functioning, they have a greater ability to alter the conformation (shape or structure) of DNA."
