Jesus the Biochemist, Pt. 2

cytoplasm

Jesus lived a relatively short life. He only needed to be around as long as was necessary for his message to be “absorbed.”

In the world of the cytoplasm the life of the Son, messenger-RNA, is short. Once the ribosomal-RNA is “keyed in,” the messenger-RNA is quickly broken down into individual nucleotides, which are put to a variety of uses in the cell. Thus, as the Son, messenger-RNA, completes its work, its “flesh and blood,” or body, is given for the life of the world of cytoplasm.

Once the Son has done His job, the apostles are the ones left to disseminate His message:

In the cell, there is a “transfer” or “missionary” job to be done. This work is accomplished by small fragments of RNA, fragments so small as to be freely soluble in the cell. These are often referred to as transfer-RNA. There are a number of varieties of transfer-RNA, and each will attach itself to one particular activated amino acid and to no other… In parallel, one might say that each factor of the superego can transmit only a portion of the truth, and thus brings only its “understanding” to be “attached” to the Son, messenger-RNA, so that many prophets and apostles are necessarily involved in the whole story that the Son, sent into the world, must reveal unto it.

In the Gospel of John Jesus says: “He who has seen me has seen the Father.” “My teaching is not my own, but comes from the one who sent me.” “Yet even if I should judge, my judgment would be valid, because it is not I alone who judges, but I and the one who sent me. “ Harold tells us that…

The world of the cytoplasm can see the Father, DNA, only in the Son, in messenger-RNA, which is somehow sent from the nucleus to give itself to “key-in” the “truth-blanks” in order that the world of the cytoplasm may partake of the Father’s word and the Son’s body, and thereby live. The Father, DNA, does not leave the nucleus; the “doctrine” of the messenger-RNA is not its own; it is the doctrine of the DNA that sends it. Whatever the message it gives, its judgment is true, for it gives DNA’s judgment as to the particular imprint (of the particular substance) to be impressed upon the ribosomal-RNA.

We’ll finish up today’s post with this potent paragraph:

In the cell, the message is expressed in a “chemical language,” which may now be the only “language” left to the Father, for to the Son, man, is given the power of the word. The “chemical words” of DNA brought by messenger-RNA are life to the cells. Jesus indicates that the words of truth, sounding from the depths in man and voiced through his Authority-Ego, are life to consciousness. As it partakes of them it is partaking of that which gives it eternal being, for truth and love are the “us” of God, eternal. Thus, He says, “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.” He insists that the spirit quickens the flesh, and thus that life itself is a nonmaterial force.

And where do we find life, spirit, within the body? That will be the focus of our next post. Until then, peace.

Jesus the Biochemist, Pt. 1

Preston Harold sees Jesus’ life as a parable of two scientific concepts: biochemistry and light. We will look at how Jesus’ story reveals the scientific theories of light later in the The Shining Stranger but for now we will explore how His story uncovers biochemistry.

Biochemistry

As symbol of primordial life, giving voice to that which all things were made, Jesus’ strange words appear to enfold what is today called biochemical information – and from this point of view, the whole story of the Son of man as Jesus depicted it may be seen as a parable revealing the life of the cell. To reveal life’s deepest secrets is incumbent upon truth bearer:

“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” –Matt 13:35

In other words, Jesus’ parables run DEEP, going much further than what we may have even imagined or been able to understand of them up to this point. Many excellent and enlightening volumes have been written on Jesus’ parables, but none have ever gone, or even considered going, down to the microscopic levels of biological life. But why not? As Harold says, truth resides at ALL levels of our lived experience. Why then leave out biochemistry or any of the sciences for that matter?

The psychic operation between Father, Son, and the world of man as Jesus described and depicted it parallels the biochemists’ description of DNA and messenger-RNA operating in a cell. The biochemical operation may reflect the psychic operation and vice versa… One may see the cell’s DNA as Father, and the cell’s messenger-RNA as Son of man, which has partaken of the “life” of the Father, DNA, and is sent into the world of the cytoplasm to reveal the Father’s, or DNA’s, message.

Very good. Now Harold will tell us how the world of the cytoplasm mirrors the subconscious, ego-group, and superego:

This world is a complex system containing thousands of small bodies of various sizes, shapes, and functions; these bodies are called Mitochondria and are the “powerhouses” of the cell; they may be compared to the ego-group, “Israel.” But these ‘bodies” are not the ones messenger-RNA must impress with the Father’s, DNA’s, doctrine if the cell is to have life or the know-how to produce the substance it must have. In the cell, there are smaller “particulates” containing RNA; these are called Microsomes and they are the protein factories; they may be likened to the subconscious. In addition, there are tiny particles densely distributed on the network of membranes associated with the microsomal fraction in the cell; they are known as Ribosomes and may be likened to the superego or the disciples because they contain just about all of the RNA, which may be likened to “truth.”But the ribosomal-RNA does not carry the genetic code; ribosomal-RNA is something like a “key-blank” which can be ground to fit any lock. Upon this “key-blank” the messenger-RNA, sometimes called template-RNA, impress DNA’s message, giving ribosomal-RNA the “keys,” the secrets, of the “kingdom within,” the nucleus, seat of DNA, Father.

We will continue with this line of thought in our next post, Until then, peace.
