The Biology of Belief  is a ground-breaking work in the field of new biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. The implications this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.
 

The Biology of Transcendence highly recommended

- Joseph Chilton Pearce

2002

In The Biology of Transcendence Joseph Chilton Pearce examines he current biological understanding of our neural organization to address how we can transcend our current evolutionary capacities and limitations. The latest research identified the four neural centers of our brain, and, through the new discipline of neurocardiology, indicates that a fifth such center is located in the heart. As Pearce shows us, it is theĀ  dynamic interaction of our head brain (intellect) and heart brain (intelligence) that allows transcendence from one evolutionary place to the next--we are quite literally, made to transcend. Conversely, it is the breakdown of this interaction through the cultural dictates of society and religion surrounding us from the time we are children hat keeps us where we are, mired in the current crises of violence among people and between people and the planet.

Emergence
The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
 

- Steve Johnson

2001

Emergence is what happens when an interconnected system of relatively simple elements self-organizes to form more intelligent, more adaptive higher-level behavior. It's a bottom-up model; rather than being engineered by a general or a master planner, emergence begins at the ground level. Systems that at first glance seem vastly different--ant colonies, human brains, cities, immune systems-- all turn out to follow the rules of emergence.

Drawing upon evolutionary theory, urban studies, neuroscience and copter games, Emergence is a guidebook to one of the key components of twenty-first-century culture.
