During my research on Walk-Ins and Starseeds, one term continually popped up. The Crystal Gene.
It’s a concept I hadn’t encountered before. Individuals who have a Walk-In or believe themselves a Starseed possess what is called a Crystal Gene. A primitive gene connected to our original beginnings that, once activated, keeps us on course toward our designated mission on Earth. The Crystal gene is embedded in the DNA of enlightened individuals.
Some individuals are born with the gene activated. Others will have those moments when the Universe becomes clearer—ah-ha or light bulb moments. This signals the activation of their Crystal Gene.
Once activated, the enlightened ones begin to question the things they’ve been taught or took for granted. They see a broader connection to all things. A roundness as Native Americans call it.
Today’s research took me into the investigation of the elusive Crystal Gene, and I found it is indeed elusive, and thereby, produced little information. Nonetheless, some thought-provoking material was garnered.
For the skeptics in my audience—those whose Crystal Gene has not been activated and who question the existence of the Crystal Gene—here’s a little science to back it up.
Besides being a photography studio in Oregon, there are eight things I found scientifically important to proving the Crystal Gene.
1. There exists a hypothesis that asks if crystals are primitive genetic material.
2. Creator of this hypothesis is Graham Cairns-Smith, an organic chemist and molecular biologist at the University of Glasgow. His hypothesis surfaced in the mid 1960s. He believes: “A simpler kind of evolution came first, and then, what are now the molecules of life came to be produced in a consistent way.”
3. July 16, 2007 The Royal Society of Chemistry published an article entitled: Crystals Are Genes?
4. The article states that American scientists tested the Crystals As Genes Hypothesis (CAGH).
5. Bart Kahr from University of Washington, Seattle, US, and his colleagues designed the first experiment to examine the idea that crystals can act as a source of transferable information, using crystals of potassium hydrogen phthalate.
6. The experiment was conducted in an effort to determine if Cairns-Smith’s hypothesis is relevant to the origin of life.
7. Kahr found, as Cairns-Smith suggested, the distribution of the crystal defects can be transferred from one crystal to another, but a large number of mutations were observed.
8. Kahr concluded: For crystals to resemble genes there must be more inheritance than mutation in successive generations. (ProbeNote: Kahr hoped his experiment would lead to more investigations into the CAGH. But that was in 2007, and I find no follow up.)
Cairns-Smith’s Response to the Experiment
“I would say that the success of [the] idea that RNA preceded DNA has provided inadvertent support for crystal genes. The big thing missing… is an account of how activated nucleotides might have appeared on the primitive Earth as feedstock for replicating RNA molecules. The kind of organic chemical competence required here could only have been the result of natural selection—based of course on some other genetic material.” —Graham Cairns-Smith.
Other genetic material?
“One of the miracles of life, to my mind, is the accuracy with which DNA gets itself replicated in the cell. It has to be that unbelievably accurate, otherwise we’d all die out in no time.” —Graham Cairns-Smith.
Cairns-Smith in the Proceedings to the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences journal published a paper entitled: A Case For Alien Ancestry, May 6, 1975.
The Abstract by Cairns-Smith for the publication states:
Many modern biochemicals can be formed in significant yields under loosely controlled abiogenic synthetic conditions. They are, in this sense, easy to make and appear to be among the moderately common molecules of the Universe. We might expect a highly evolved life form like ours to have perfected a system that uses a kit of easily made parts. This is a sign of sophistication, but it may well be the hard won outcome of a prolonged evolution. It is by no means clear that this evolution started with anything like the system that it eventually perfected.
In the publication, Cairns-Smith presents arguments suggesting our original ancestors had alien biochemistries.
Where Our Beginnings Meet
Native Americans believe in the roundness of life.
All things have a roundness to them; the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, the stars, the trees and rocks all have roundness, and humans have roundness as well. The lodges we build ~ our sweatlodge, our tepee ~ are also round because we want to acknowledge the wholeness of Creation. —From the Desk of GraceWatcher
Seems our research on Walk-Ins, Starseeds, the Fermi Paradox, Ancient Astronauts, and the weird-and-wonderful all end up at the same spot. Like we are on a loop. Like the roundness of life. My conclusion—where our beginnings meet the beginning—remains: not all of us are of this Earth.
If life on Earth was first activated from information stored and transferred from crystals, where did the crystals originate? Did our genetic material piggy back to Earth via asteroids? Are encrypted crystals the simpler form of evolution to which Cairns-Smith refers?
What are your thoughts? Did Crystal Genes pave our path to evolution? If so, where did they come from? Also, I’d definitely appreciate additional information on Crystal Genes—scientific and/or pseudoscience.
I love hearing from you. Even if you disagree.
The Probe is a blog devoted to the exploration of the unexplainable, to finding the truth in occurrences that resemble science fiction, and to researching and reporting on topics that could be flung upon the wall of weird. New posts are featured as often as I can find WiFi, and as often as I have something I think you might find interesting.
Join me here for more close encounters of the alien kind, or ghost kind, or animal kind, or travel kind, and please share your own. Science Fiction or Fact? Doesn’t matter to me. I just like a story that gives me the chills, makes me laugh, makes me think, or makes me imagine.
