Science is changing, the old scientists are finally dying off; old theories fade into fable and the butt of jokes. I always feel like we lag behind science and I think we need to be more involved in it, never paying much mind to the cutting edge let alone a hypothesis ever since Space Elevator stopped posting. We care about truth and we care about our race thus we care about biology. So let us study some quantum biology, it's a whole new world.
Reality is fundamentally comprised of vibrating fields, not magnetic buckyballs or guitar strings. Watch the this video if that's news to you, the one good thing we're getting from the LHC is the beginnings of a new table of elements.

Epigenetics is terrifying, you are what your grandfather did– even thought, so lift for your grandkids. Epigenetics isn't really new, it used to be called heritability and was known for centuries even antiquity perhaps even the stoneage; good hunters breed good hunters. However, epigenetics is a catch-all for anything above genetics; molecular biologists are trying to save face after the failure of the human genome project, medical markets were expecting elixirs of youth but all they got was genealogy tools for grandmas and nationalists as the scientists couldn't even predict height and found out that humans have less genes than worms and the rice plant that's less than a tenth of what they were expecting. That is why heritability came back, because they knew genes weren't the end-all be all of what composes human's form. The current generation of scientists are still obsessed with the molecular, since it's what they were trained to do, but this is changing as it gives way to quantum biology. I'm sorry if you're a molecular biologist, it's like going to school to learn how to program operating systems then learning about ring 0 after you're out. My personal hypothesis that I've deduced from studying is that genes are like computer drivers, trying to get all the fiddly parts of the hardware to work together with the software.
Morphic fields is a theory that's well accepted but it's importance has been debated, it's been around since the early 20th century and has made a comeback just like heritability, it's just not well understood. The best part is: we have no clue how to calculate all these fields– so if you wanna win a million bucks and think you're a god at math it's a noble goal as it would shoot our scientific understanding through the roof. Fields having memory is real, see the very famous double slit experiment, it's why it was so shocking. This actually has massive implications and explains why the brain tests to isolate memories never worked: it's probably in a field. I don't think the microtubules hypothesis for consciousness is holding up too well and comes from an assumption that consciousness is in the brain, once again probably in a quantum field. It's starting to look like the brain is simply an antenna and might explain why we don't have our brain in the middle of our chests or have ultra thick skulls.

Archdruid Rupert Sheldrake is one of the most interesting scientists alive and arch-rival of Richard Dawkins. His book The New Science of Life, The Hypothesis of Morphic Resonance is considered the Mein Kampf of biology books, jews were shrieking over this book and demanded it to be burnt, literally. It's a hypothesis that's pretty far-out with pretty good cases and experiments, as the years roll on it's looking more and more plausible; typically the opposite happens to a hypothesis. It's one that could massive ramifications if it were true and demand the restructuring of society: as in a racial soul that determines instincts, collective consciousness even mundane telepathy.
This could explain a lot, like why people who live in ghettos start thinking like niggers, feeling stares, why homogeneous societies are more peaceful, why teams work so well together, why mothers have a baby sense. This would mean that segregation of peoples is of utmost importance for mental health; this could destroy the very concept of huge multicultural cities.

I would love to see Maplefrog have a conversion with The Archdruid.
Alan Watts is basically right about everything and ghetto busting wave cannons playing Moonman are gonna be real.
