Erosion of genetic deep-structure Destabilization of genetic structure
Genetic engineering efforts focus on modification of specific genes in the DNA structure of a species through identification of genes associated with specific biological functions. When genetic material is added or deleted, little attention is given to the modification of the overall DNA structure. In fact there has been very little research on the overall structure, especially since it has been recognized that long sequences of nucleotides appear not to be associated with any biological function. However some research indicates that there is a super-structure, best described through numerical analysis, determinining the sequences of chains of nucleotides (TCAG), notably through those sequences seemingly without function. In effect the millions of nucleotides in the DNA tend to self-organize by privileging and optimizing their relative proportions according to the numerical series of Fibonacci and Lucas (whose effects have long been remarked in the characteristic spiralling of petals in particular species). In this way there are what amounts to large scale patterning (numerical resonances) through the DNA structure as a whole. Introduction, or removal, of foreign genetic material necessarily disrupts such patterning. Research has suggested that such disruption renders the DNA vulnerable to unpredictable mutations that are effectively facilitated. Early research indicates that this destabilization can lead to death.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
