This is the only lesson you'll ever need on quantum physics and cellular biology. Lipton's love of teaching, his enthusiastic speaking style, and his practical grasp of biophysics make this audio highly accessible. He says that cell membranes are like TV receivers, picking up energy from our thoughts, from other people, and from the universe. Thinking about living organisms in terms of matter or mere heredity overlooks the web of energy that links everyone and everything in the tangible world. Lipton says that genes change according to the signals they "read" from the environment in continuous feedback loops. This phenomenon and our unique capacity for awareness could delay the sixth great human extinction and further our evolutionary ascension.
