New Scientific Model Add's Fuel to the Evidence That Genetic Engineering Threatens "Self-Organization" in DNA
GMO - Genetically Modified Organizism - New Summary for Decision Makers -
July 30, 2001 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands
It must be agonizing for compassionate government and United Nations leaders to make decisions about the future of DNA, knowing full well that either way millions of people are now starving to death and billions may follow them. Immense political subterfuge as well as multi-national corporate fortunes have lined up squarely in support of GMO against relatively underfunded conscientious academics like those 445 Scientists who recently signed the..
This letter can only urge the deciding leaders they MUST in good conscious read the huge body of academic literature about GMO hazard assembled by Dr.Mae-Wan Ho in her "Genetic Engineering-Dream or Nightmare: Brave New World of Bad Science and Big Business", and their related Institute of Science in Society , http://www.i-sis.org/
The purpose of this document is to update leaders with a perhaps even more radical and far reaching concern about genetic engineering as it is now practiced.
Could DNA be in fact literally self-organizing and self-aware by virtue of the geometry of it's "wratchet and braid" and if so, what does re-splicing and re-spacing of codon groups do to that self steering ability.
Two years ago, Dr. Depak Chopra invited Systems Engineer and Biofeedback Inventor, Daniel Winter to present a new theory at their LaJolla, CA lab. Dr. Chopra had already concluded that SELF-REFERENCE was the limiting and defining condition of SELF AWARENESS and therefore consciousness. After his presentation there, Chopra and his research director Dr. David Simon, indeed concluded that Winter had in fact found a way to MEASURE that SELF-REFERENCE and thus measure SELF ORGANIZATION in wave function.
Since that time, Winter has successfully invented, and offered to the world his technology of measuring SELF-AWARENESS - as applied specifically to the heart. His invention - the HEARTLINK ( www.heartbeat2000.com , www.goldenmean.info/sbheart1.html , www.heartphire.com ) measures internal COHERENCE and something he calls EMBEDDING in the heart's harmonic music. (power spectra of EKG ). He found that when people are feeling open and blissful - literally compassion, their heart's voltage sings a chord which chooses a measureable musical fundamental based on the Golden Mean Ratio, and not Octave powers of 2. This also turned out to be a way to measure the "FRACTALITY" or simple - harmonic inclusiveness in the Heart Rate "Variability" which Dr. Dardik of the Olympic Medical committee showed statistically correlates with ended MOST KNOWN CHRONIC DISEASES ! ( www.goldenmean.info/dardik , www.goldenmean.info/dimple ).
So what does this have to do with the surival of DNA?
Well recently Winter has extended his model to suggest that in fact Golden Ratio harmonics are the key to EMBEDDING in general, and therefore the key to self-organization out of chaos, FOR ALL WAVE SYSTEMS. You see it just happens that DNA as a wave structure has more Golden Ratio nesting in it, than just about any structure alive. First, Winter's theory of Artificial Intelligence based on the harmonics of perfect embedding or nesting, was written up for a University in Portugal ( 71 Pages being re-translated at goldenmean.info/fred ) .
Then Winter traveled to genetic engineering research centers in half a dozen or so countries proposing his model for testing ( Decode Genetics, Iceland ; Gene Control s.a. Geneva ; Genetic Lab, Univ Basel, etc.) .
What Winter is saying is simple to summarize, yet it is helpful to see the pictures. He contends that the wave organization of DNA by being so Golden Mean based, or recursive, or 'fractal' allows it's nesting structure to BRAID itself in such a way as to produce IMPLOSION (the opposite of explosion).

Open Letter from World Scientists to All Governments
We, the undersigned scientists, call for the immediate suspension of all environmental releases of GM crops and products, both commercially and in open field trials, for at least 5 years; for patents on living processes, organisms, seeds, cell lines and genes to be revoked and banned; and for a comprehensive public enquiry into the future of agriculture and food security for all.
Patents on life-forms and living processes should be banned because they threaten food security, sanction biopiracy of indigenous knowledge and genetic resources, violate basic human rights and dignity, compromise healthcare, impede medical and scientific research and are against the welfare of animals.
GM crops offer no benefits to farmers or consumers. Instead, many problems have been identified, including yield drag, increased herbicide use, erratic performance, and poor economic returns to farmers. GM crops also intensify corporate monopoly on food, which is driving family farmers to destitution, and preventing the essential shift to sustainable agriculture that can guarantee food security and health around the world
The hazards of GMOs to biodiversity and human and animal health are now acknowledged by sources within the UK and US Governments. Particularly serious consequences are associated with the potential for horizontal gene transfer. These include the spread of antibiotic resistance marker genes that would render infectious diseases untreatable, the generation of new viruses and bacteria that cause diseases, and harmful mutations which may lead to cancer.
In the Cartegena Biosafety Protocol negotiated in Montreal in January 2000, more than 130 governments have pledged to implement the precautionary principle and to ensure that biosafety legislations at the national and international levels take precedence over trade and financial agreements at the World Trade Organization.
Successive studies have documented the productivity and the social and environmental benefits of sustainable, low-input and organic farming in both North and South. They offer the only practical way of restoring agricultural land degraded by conventional agronomic practices, and empower small family farmers to combat poverty and hunger.

Bt is Toxic
Recently there has been considerable international concern about the contamination of the human food chain with StarLink corn containing Baciullus thuriniensis (Bt) toxin Cry 9. Bt Cry 9 toxin had evident allergenicity in test animals, and had been approved for use in animal feed alone, but was found to have contaminated corn and corn products destined for human consumption.
Bt toxins are the products of a number of genes and genes that differ between Bt varieties.

Monsanto's GM cotton not safe
The following letter was sent to key government officials in India on June 19, 2001, to support the campaign spearheaded by Devinder Sharma, food and trade policy analyst, to stop commercial planting of Monsanto's GM cotton in India. The Indian Government subsequenly delayed commercial planting by a year.

Please allow me to advise you in the strongest terms against the commercial approval of Mahyco-Monsanto's Bt transgenic cotton.
I am a geneticist and biophysicist with more than 30 years experience in research and teaching. Since 1994, I have been scientific advisor to the Third World Network, and have engaged in debates and discussions in 30 countries around the world, including India. I am currently also Director of the Institute of Science in Society (ISIS), which I co-founded in 1999. I have more than two hundred and fifty publications including 10 books spanning several disciplines, among which is Genetic Engineering Dream or Nightmare, Turning the Tide on the Brave New World of Bad Science and Big Business (1998, 1999).
I also represent 435 scientists from 53 countries who have signed an open letter to all governments calling for a moratorium on environmental releases of GMOs on grounds that they are inherently unsafe according to existing scientific evidence and for a ban on patents of life-forms and living processes on grounds that they are unethical and do not constitute inventions. This letter can be found at the Institute of Science in Society website http://www.i-sis.org
I fully support the detailed studies called for by the India Council of Agriculture Research. I note, however, that there is existing evidence of hazards that you may have missed. My colleagues and I have been actively monitoring the scientific literature and written many reports over the years. I draw your attention especially to the following items, reproduced below from our newslettter, ISIS News 7/8 February 2001: "Monsanto's GM cottons and gonorrhea" and "Bt is toxic", which contain evidence from scientific studies, and "GM cotton fails in Indonesia", which refers to evidence collected by top journalists in Indonesia. For more details on the hazards inherent to GMOs, please visit ISIS website.

Monsanto's GM Cottons & Gonorrhea
Strongly worded advice against the approval of Monsanto's GM cotton was given by UK Government scientists warning of antibiotic resistance genes that would make gonorrhea untreatable. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho reports.
The information is in the archives of the UK Advisory Committee on Novel Foods and Processes (ACNFP) which vats applications for commercial approval of novel foods and animal feed. The advice was given in February 1999 (but was only published last year by the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food). At around the same time, the European Union rejected Monsanto's application for the sale of the GM cottons in Europe. The reason? The gene aad, which confers resistance to the antibiotics streptomycin and spectinomycin, is present in both Bollgard (insect-protected) and Roundup Ready (herbicide tolerant) GM cottons.
The bacterium responsible for gonorrhoea, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, could acquire the aad gene from GM plant materials during infection of the mouth and small and large intestine as well as the respiratory tract. N. gonorrhoeae could also get the gene indirectly from other bacteria in the internal and external environments of animals and human beings, which have taken up the gene from GM plant materials.
