We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already occurring.
In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet’s history and how each of us can participate in this global shift.
In collaboration with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman, Dr. Lipton invites readers to reconsider:
- the “unquestionable” pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA;
- the relationship between mind and matter;
- how our beliefs about nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives; and
- how each of us can become planetary “stem cells” supporting the health and growth of our world.
By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future.
the box of government with collective wisdom and co-intelligence, Tom Atlee, Jim Rough and others propose citizen deliberative councils or citizen wisdom councils. These or similarly named groups of randomly selected persons focus on issues and policies that are mired in conflict then glean common wisdom and make it available to the entire community or nation. These councils are holistic in two ways: First, they seek input from the broadest range of information and points of view, even ideas

polytheism birthed the first philosophers. Greek thought evolved into two distinct and mutually exclusive points of view. The first, popularized by Democritus (460-370 B.C.E.), suggested the primacy of matter. Democritus coined the word atom, which means “uncuttable.” He surmised that invisible and irreducible atoms, the smallest bits of material reality, were at the core of every physical structure and that the Universe consisted of atoms suspended in a void. To Democritus and his followers,
merely an analysis of the Universe but also the promise of a controllable utopia. The price? The thinking world would have to sacrifice its preoccupation with God, spirits, and invisible forces. Somewhere between the time of Newton in the early 1700s and the Age of Enlightenment in the late 1700s, tensions eased between the upstart paradigm of modern science and the still-dominant, Church-controlled monotheistic paradigm. By conveniently dividing the Universe into a material realm and a
simultaneously. Without getting too anthropomorphic—bacteria hate it when we do that—it would seem that bacteria have an intention to survive. In fact, all life forms exhibit this inherent drive, which biologists identified as the will to survive. At the cellular level, this survival mechanism can unleash a cascade of random mutations until one hits the jackpot. No matter how many times these Cairnsian experiments have been repeated, researchers have found no consistent pattern within the DNA
