Consider that all our molecules must have a very specific geometry, shape and electrical charge in order to work. Nobel prize winner Dr. Christian de Duve named one of the essential qualities of biological molecules - chemical complementarity.  What this means is that molecules must FIT each other to make our cells work.  Antibodies must be able to wrap around…

While writing the book Cells and the Sacred, I continue to learn the crossovers between science and the sacred.  There  are far more links than I knew when I started this process more than a decade ago.

Investigating the links between science and spiritual traditions, I've discovered an uncanny quality in biology, architecture and spirituality I call threeness. A code of 3 is hidden in our cells and molecules. The genetic code is  made up of 3 letters.  AAA     ATA   GCT Our brains are called TRIune constructed of 3 anatomically and functionally different areas - brain stem,…

All my words and pictures about the art and shapes in wine may strike you as odd.

What is a wine shaman, you may ask.  My definition - its someone who looks into wine for hidden messages and mysterious molecular congregations. For some unknown reason, on the practical level, I have been photographing wine through the…
