Maja's Masters Degree Thesis:
Dis-Inheriting the Sins of Our Fathers: Shamanism and Atavism in Transformational Psychology
Is Available on Amazon Kindle Here Or you can order printed copies for $7 ($2 shipping):
What if there was a physical method to access all the memories hidden within our DNA?
The Shamans of China developed a method of divination which so closely reflected our DNA it was uncanny. The I Ching not only looks like DNA undergoing the polymerase chain reaction, but it also contains the same mathematical ratios, base pairs and sequences.
What if we could combine an ancient technique with modern techonology and release thousands of years of genetic memory?
The way we deal with inherited traits from not only our parents directly, but also the history of humanity could help us evolve as a species.
Join Maja as she examines her own personal battle to accept her connection to her crimnal Father and take it to the deepest levels of her connections to the entire history of the human race.
"The word "atavism" comes to us form the Latin "atavus" which means literally, a great-grandfather's grandfather. An atavism is used to describe an evolutionary throwback, namely, a genetic trait which spontaneously reappears that had disappeared generations ago. This means that things left behind by our great-great-grandparents can suddenly re-appear outwardly through us if the right trigger is provided. The most recent evidence of these phenomena was a dolphin captured off the coast of Wakayama Japan that had an extra pair of flippers where feet would go. Atavisms are possible because all previously existing phenotypical data is stored within DNA , even though most of these genes are not expressed in the current physical manifestation of the organism. The deeper meaning of the word atavism then becomes incredibly revealing of our history when one begins to grasp its implications. If atavisms exist, if we can spontaneously revert back to older forms, than these forms exist within us all the time, latent though they may be. More important than these forms simply existing within us is that they contain a history of our existence in the form of data dating back at least to the creation of the DNA molecule on the planet earth"
"If, then , the daimons exist within our bodies, it stands to reason they could very much be expressed as a molecule. The daimon, like DNA is literally our seed essence. Daimones are our philosopher's stone or quintessence which contains all of our possibilities through space and time, past, present and future.
Entelechy or entelechia refers to the `first actuality' of any particular organism...entelechia refers to an indwelling form or essence which determines the organism's activity and development, while at the same time containing within itself the organism's complete potential.The metaphor which perhaps best approximates the entelechy is the seed of a plant, which is the cause of the plant's existence, growth and characteristics, and which also holds the biological prototype or imprint of its full development. The entelechy is perhaps the closest thing in the Aristotelean corpus to the Platonic Daemon. In contradistinction to Plato's notion of the Daemon, the entelechy is immanent and substantial, rather than transcendent and insubstantial. Common to both terms, however, is an element of "fate" or "predestination." Like the Platonic Daemon, which on one level functions as the soul's "lot" in life, and which Heraclitus also specifically associates with the individual's fate or destiny, the entelechy is a kind of essence which determines the future development of the organism, in what amounts to a kind of biological determinism.

Lastly, the author would like to point out how interesting it is that the word Daimon contains the letters D, N and A. In fact if we rearrange the letters we see what the name "daimon" is really telling us:
O, I'm DNA."
