A PDF Essay From: The Chris Thomas Files
We are all aware of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) but, very few of us actually know what it does in the cell structures of the body. Medically, it is described as:
“The very long molecule that winds up to form a chromosome and that contains the complete code for the automatic construction of the body. The molecule has a double helix skeleton of alternating sugars (deoxyribose) and phosphates…”
But this is far from being the whole story.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of workshops being offered, sometimes at considerable expense, to help people raise their number of DNA strands from the traditional two to twelve. So, what is the benefit of changing our DNA in this way? Is it a benefit, or even desirable, to change the coding “for the automatic construction of the body”? To understand these questions, we first must understand what DNA actually is.
The Construction of the Human Body
We are used to hearing from scientists that the body is a collection of cells which seem to follow some sort of pattern, of which DNA plays a part, and somewhere or other, we have a consciousness. From a religious viewpoint, we are told that we are a body that has, somewhere or other, a soul. The terms “consciousness” and “soul” mean very much the same thing but, are used separately to differentiate between the scientific view and the religious view. Most people believe that we are a body that has a soul (consciousness) but, are unsure of where that soul is. The reality is that we are a soul that builds for itself a body…not a body that has a soul but, a soul that has a body.
In order for the soul to take on a physical body, it borrows the “etheric template” of a human body, makes a copy and begins to build the body inside the womb. When the father’s sperm meets the mother’s egg, an automatic process is begun that is a function of the fertilisation process (the soul does not connect at this stage) and all that really happens is that the egg begins to divide. From both parents, the new foetus “borrows” some aspects of both parent’s DNA. These are basic characteristics such as skin colour and hair colour…no more than that, everything else about the foetus is determined by the soul of the incoming child. After about 800 cell divisions, the soul of the foetus makes its first connection to the growing bundle of dividing cells. At this stage, the soul is not connected to the cells but, begins to imprint the etheric template. After about 16 days, the soul’s connection to the foetus begins to strengthen and it is at this stage that DNA begins to play its role.
At this stage in a foetus’s development, DNA breaks down into 2 separate parts:
 Seventy-five percent of the total DNA is the storage of memories from past lives. If an experience in a past life needs to be resolved within the body during this lifetime then, the memories of that past life trauma are added at this point. These memories can take the form of a disability, such as a missing limb or, they can be as a result of the past life event imprinted into the body for this life. For example, if a previous life ended by your being shot to death, the memory of the bullet wounds can show themselves as moles on the skin.
 The remaining 25 percent of the total DNA is needed to construct the physical tissues of the body around the etheric template. As the foetus grows, this percentage gradually drops until, at birth, only about ten percent is needed to continue the body’s development. At puberty, when the body has effectively stopped growing, the percentage drops to about three percent. This three percent is the amount of DNA that keeps the body functioning for the remainder of its life. When doctors claim that they have worked out how DNA works, it is this three percent of which they speak whilst claiming that the remaining 97 percent is “junk”.
However, from puberty onwards, the function of DNA breaks down like this:
 Seventy-five percent is the storage of past life memories.
 Three percent maintains the body’s physical processes.
 Twenty-two percent records memories of the events that take place in this lifetime.
Physical memories are only stored in the brain for very short-term periods, only a couple of years at most. Long term memory is stored within the DNA. This is the reason why the elderly can remember very little of their recent lives but, can remember their earlier life in great detail. As the cell structures of the brain begin to break down as we become older, much of the short-term memory is lost whereas the long-term, DNA, memory is fully intact and becomes easier for the elderly to access these memories as their brain cells become less efficient. This is the actual make up of DNA. It is principally memory.
The Higher Self and The Physical Self
A Human Being is defined, by the Earth, as a physical being that contains the whole of the soul. When we first came to Atlantis, this is the state in which humans were. However, we encountered problems and, eventually, decided to divide the soul into two parts. The soul was to be divided into the “physical self”, about 25 percent of the total soul and, the “higher self”, the remaining 75 percent of the soul. This division took place about 7,000 years ago and we have been in this divided state ever since (see Synthesis). However, we set ourselves a time limit of 7,000 years to find a way to re-merge the two aspects of the soul back into the physical body. This is the process we are currently undergoing.
To understand what this means, we need to take a further look at the body/soul connection. As can be seen from earlier, the soul begins to make a very tentative connection with the growing foetus at about 800 cell divisions following egg fertilisation. The connection of the soul to the developing foetus remains limited until about 16 weeks into the pregnancy. As the foetus develops in the womb, all of the past life memories, or disabilities, are incorporated. After about 16 weeks, the soul decides whether all of the memories to be incorporated into the foetus have worked correctly. If they have not incorporated correctly, the foetus is miscarried. If incorporated correctly, the soul begins to draw itself into the body.
This drawing into the body by the soul has three stages:
 At about 16 weeks, the foetus is given life and begins to respond to the mother.
 At birth, or just before, enough of the soul is drawn into the body to be independent of the mother.
 At puberty, the final piece of the soul, that is to be incorporated into the body for this lifetime, is drawn in.
The soul is not located in a particular region of the body. The soul infuses every single body cell. The body takes the shape of the soul and the soul inhabits the body…or, at least, the “physical aspect” of the soul inhabits the body. The “higher aspect”, or higher self, remains outside of the physical body but, very closely connected with it.
However, in this lifetime, we are re-writing the rules.

An Article From: The Chris Thomas Files
People often ask me, ‘If we have lived a series of lifetimes and, if the process of ‘reincarnation’ and our memories of these lifetimes is stored in our DNA, why is it that we do not remember these other lives?’
The answer is quite simple and has to do with the purpose of current human life.
When modern humans first appeared on Earth about 80,000 years ago, we were very much more advanced than we are now. This was at the beginning of the development of the land we know as Atlantis. In those times, human beings had the whole soul within the body. As a result, their full store of memories was intact and fully interactive with the body and, perfectly expressed in the body’s DNA.
However, as time went by, we began to notice that we were having trouble maintaining this level of being and our ‘fall’ from full consciousness was a contributory factor in our collective decision to destroy the Atlantean continent. When we returned to Earth to begin the human experiment again, 20,000 years ago, we once again adopted the same ‘human template’ and, again, encountered the same consciousness problems. The reasons for these problems are too complex to explore here but, ultimately, we formulated ‘The Human Plan’ which we fully adopted 7,000 years ago.
At that point, humans became as we are now: a soul divided into the higher self, or oversoul and, the physical self. This physical self was endowed with sufficient DNA memory to allow us to record our experiences so that, ultimately, we would find answers as to why it had been so difficult to maintain the whole soul within the physical body.
Each of those involved in this plan elected to go through a series of lifetimes including experiences that would enable them to learn how to be fully human again. According to my researches, we didn’t plan to spend forever learning this! Instead, we gave ourselves a time limit of round about 7,000 years, which is why, at the present time, the energies we are experiencing on Earth are so powerfully supportive of inner transformation and growth.
