I got to thinking today. One of the other points the Ode article makes is that “junk DNA” represents the combination for accessing that cosmic consciousness drive. It’s part of the encryption key, so to speak.
That means that, in theory, if we ever totally cracked human DNA, we could speak to the dead. Imagine that. The folks that came before us are enjoying that ultimate upgrade in the sky and along come all these fleshy intruders looking for Albert Einstein and more insights into physics.
Considered another way, people that actually are true “mediums” would contain sufficient genetic material to decrypt the aspects of DNS that permit access to the cosmic consciousness.
