Is Peace Embedded in our Genes?

How We Can All Contribute to Global Harmony

I am writing this from Malta, looking out to sea, near the African coast and Lampedusa, in the middle of worldwide turmoil of unspeakable human suffering. The refugee situation is a tragedy of all humankind. It is clear to us that we need a new way of responding. We will only be able to bring about a permanent end to the plight of refugees if we are able to create fundamental changes in the societal conditions in both their home countries and in their destinations. In this article I want to shed light on the logic of global healing.

I recently read an essay on the Internet with the title “Der Traum vom Blitzfrieden” [The Dream of Instantaneous Peace]. The writer, Martin Häusler, claimed that global war could be ended very quickly. This is a beautiful idea. And I believe that it is actually possible to put an end to global war surprisingly quickly but that it will not happen overnight. In order to do it we need both an honest heart and a large-scale implementation plan. It will also require the fulfilment of a number of conditions relating to the existence of humankind on Earth.

What kind of conditions are these?

We need a new foundation for human culture, a new concept for the cohabitation of our planet and for the co-existence of humankind with all fellow beings. This concept already exists! It is contained within the higher world order, which we call the ‘Sacred Matrix’ and it is anchored in the genes of every living being, at least as a potentiality. The essence of this matrix is the unity of all beings. (See my book The Sacred Matrix).

Humankind has largely lost sight of this pattern. The patriarchal-imperialist-capitalist system generated a morphogenetic field of war under which life on Earth has suffered unspeakable cruelty for many millennia. We all carry within us the imprint of this history as a collective inheritance And we all have a part in this trauma. In order to bring about global healing we need a collective power which is stronger than our collective past.

The achievement of global peace requires the dissolving of the collective trauma; the morphogenetic field of war has to be transformed into a morphogenetic field of peace. This process operates though the creation of new information which needs to be introduced into the noosphere (the sphere of information and thought surrounding the earth) and within people.

We need to create new kinds of autonomous settlements or “healing biotopes,” on all continents. Contained within this is the original pattern for the coexistence of humans with our fellow beings. If this information is to initiate a new worldwide morphogenetic field, it needs to be compatible with the higher order of life from which we all originated.

The ‘great plan’ is an entire informational package which encompasses building community, sex, love and partnership, raising children, non-violent cooperation with animals, the healing of water, the production of energy and food, new economics and networking between the new projects. Its scope is global; it is a comprehensive, ecological, technological, social and ethical concept which aims for compatibility with the principles of the Sacred Matrix in all its parts.

Building a New Global Field

Evolution works through the creation of fields; this applies both to the evolution of nature and to the evolution of human society. After Watts developed the steam engine in the eighteenth century, the industrial revolution spread worldwide. After the use of petroleum began a hundred years later, large-scale industry expanded exponentially. With the development of the nuclear bomb, the nuclear age began. With the invention of computer technology, an age commenced.

What if we were to make a breakthrough discovery of equivalent impact in the social realm? It seems clear to me that if we could really establish new centres which cohere with the essence of the Sacred Matrix, a global system change would quickly come into being – because the information of the Sacred Matrix, towards which this transformation is moving, is already present everywhere. The global morphogenetic process is based on the resonance of the human soul with the spirit of the Sacred Matrix. Healing occurs as this resonance occurs.

This information must enter the world on the level of grounded models and then be shared globally through digital technology.

How the Material World is Changed through Information

The world can be transformed through a single piece of essential information. We can study the workings of global processes through the correlations in our own physiological systems. To give a simple example: if I am angry at someone my body reacts with aggression. If I find out later that my anger was based on misinformation and that actually the other person acted in good faith, my physiology changes immediately. My body shifts from a mode of anger to one of appreciation – these are measurable biochemical changes. I consider this to be remarkable. Our bodies react to significant information with the release of messenger substances (neuropeptides), which influence our entire organism in a number of ways. Messenger substances prompt the DNA to produce proteins which influence the physical coordination of the body. In this way we can understand how a something as complex as a human cellular system containing 50 trillion cells, is steered through the entry of a single piece of information. We experience this phenomenon in so-called ‘miracle healings’ in which an apparently incurable disease is overcome through a prayer, a positive experience or new decision in life. The organism receives new information and reacts to it with a complete change of program, from disease to healing.

Because we are all held within the Sacred Matrix, we can all receive healing power in the same way as can the cells in an individual’s body. We have all, however, become ‘distracted’ through the trauma of a long history of war; this is why our systems have become epigenetically distorted, often beyond recognition. But the original image is still present.

It is because the Sacred Matrix is latent within him, in the shape of his higher self, which we might call ‘atman’ or the Christ nature, that even a murderer can become loving when confronted with deeply humane information. It therefore follows that we will come to a state in which war is impossible – actually physiologically impossible – because the organism carries different information.

People behave like iron particles within a magnetic field, positioning themselves according to the field’s lines of force. The ‘great plan’ I am describing contains the information of global Healing Biotopes. The plan is the magnetic field, with many lines of force by which all things, all people, all professional positions will shape themselves anew. The plan brings about self- organisation insofar as those collaborating, locally and globally, are coherent with it. Thus the plan can be seen as ‘the boss.’ The more coherence a community is able to establish with this plan, the less it requires external authorities. This could give new meaning to the oft-cited term ‘grassroots’ democracy.

The Global Healing Biotopes Project

A biotope is a habitat or eco community for the regeneration, preservation and creation of natural environmental settings.

Healing Biotopes are model settlements for the research and manifestation of the systemic change from the matrix of fear to the matrix of healing in the basic areas of human existence. Healing Biotopes work on the generation of new global healing information. This healing information consists essentially of trust among participants – trust among people and trust between people and animals. After five thousand years of war, the existence of trust cannot be taken for granted; it needs to be reestablished through agreement on common social and ethical guidelines.

Trust is the channel through which the higher world can communicate with us. There are a number of systemic correlations in the realm of the Sacred Matrix. For example, the ability of humanity to solve its love issue depends on, among other things, the way we deal with rats, snakes or so-called vermin in the garden. Our social problems cannot be solved sustainably in a world of slaughterhouses, vivisection and fur-farms. Without a profound paradigm shift in our coexistence with all beings, no true Healing Biotope can arise. Even the best innovations in water, energy and nutrition will be of little lasting help unless they have a social context of trust – and above all the trust between the genders.

All beings are connected to the biological internet; all are interconnected in the one mind of the Sacred Matrix and therefore all are responsive to information from it. What seems important to me at present is that as many people as possible comprehend the informational system of the Sacred Matrix and recognise its possibilities. The potential for radical transformation exists at this dimension, which no peace movement has yet been able to think.
