Home' Nova National : August 2010 Contents way, Dr Chopra says, "The whole universe
is an electromagnetic storm that goes on
and off at the speed of light."
What's in the off? A group of scientists
and sages have concluded that it has
six elements. It's a field of infinite
possibilities; everything is in harmony
and synchronicity with everything else; it
is a field of uncertainty; quantum leaps of
creativity are possible here; the observer 's
intention holds sway and lastly; herein
lies the soul.
Being neither scientist nor sage, I
understand the level of energy as a place
where healing and change can occur, both
of which are urgently required on this
This leads us to question which is
stronger, matter or energy? Contrary to
conventional theories, Dr Chopra claims
there are strong indications that energy
is more powerful than matter. He points
to studies of people who live unusually
long and healthy lives, which is attributed
to their emotional resilience, not diet or
genes or healthy habits.
Dr Chopra is really talking about a
paradigm shift in the way we perceive the
body. In the past, we were told that our
genes determine everything about us:
the colour of our eyes, our propensity for
certain illnesses and even such things as
baldness and obesity.
Biologists thought genes were fixed.

only affect us if they're switched on.

Even the brain is not fixed. When
a person thinks and acts differently to
what has been the norm for them, actual
changes are created in their brain. Equally
intriguingly, the brain has no way of
preserving old pathways once new ones
have been created.
"How ironic," Dr Chopra comments,
"that the two things that medicine
thought were fixed, the brain and DNA,
turn out to be the keys for reinventing
If our DNA can indeed be improved,
where do we begin and how far can we
take it? Can we release our bodies from
the effects of time? How do we heal
ourselves from illness?
It begins with a different picture of
the body. Dr Chopra compares the body
to "a river that never stays the same, it is
a continuous stream merging hundreds
of thousands of chemical changes at a

is water and also the movement of water,
When we begin to think of the body
as an energetic process, instead of a fixed
structure, it becomes evident how stress,
or grief, can make someone physically sick.
Dr Chopra proposes that the clues to
healing are also found here.
