Here is one key paragraph from Codes of Evolution: “It is genetic engineering and related techniques that are moving us to an era in which evolution will be dominated not by the genes by the human brain. The revolutionary change, I believe, is part of an even larger revolution in which human beings in this century have uncovered the secrets of matter, life, and thought. The brain not only is able to control life, it is also acquired the ability to manipulate matter. And it is beginning to be able to scientifically modify its own intelligence and its emotional states as well.”
- Here is the first book to cover, in lay terms, the codes that govern everything in our universe: the quantum code, the genetic code, and the synaptic code.
- It adds the radical idea that through the understanding of these codes we are masters of not only our own evolution but also of the evolution of all matter, life, and thought!
- Like the laws of physics, which are unpredictable, the laws of evolution are also unpredictable; thus we cannot tell what is in our future.
- Here is proof that we have the ability to either enrich our world or utterly destroy it. Only human beings, because of our brains, have that capacity. To not understand the codes and their implications is to be missing out on the most significant and thrilling aspect of modern science. Codes of Evolution enables the reader to understand and to be caught up in the excitement. As Jonas Salk says, “those who are interested in the details as well as the grand scheme that has unfolded over time will find this most satisfying reading.”
