Multiple examples have been given as to how one's effective intelligence level varies as the result of environmental influences. This would appear to be the result of the manipulation of matter, and again demonstrates the interconnectedness of matter-energy and mind (or intelligence). Since an organism's intelligence potential is preprogrammed into its genes (DNA molecules) this implies that intelligence acts on a molecular or atomic level. The DNA molecule, which is now known to be comprised of four basic nucleotide building blocks in varying order, ultimately determines the complexity of our brain by directing the spatial arrangement of its molecular structure. The human brain has an extremely elaborate, complicated, complex distribution of billions and billions of molecules arranged intricately in such a way as to allow the manifestation of our current intelligence. It is this complicated spatial arrangement of matter which governs the level and nature of our intelligence.
This would also imply that atomic events happening at great distances can have effects upon our brain by causing minute changes in the spatial distribution of our brain's molecular structure.40...Our minds and bodies therefore would partially be subject to virtually all cosmic events as discussed under property No. 1.
It might be said in summary that an organism's upper and lower limits of potential intelligence are under genetic and possibly morphogenetic field control, but that environmental factors also play a very significant role in determining the ultimate level that is actually achieved. Intelligence has passed an apparent threshold which now allows us to consciously seek ways of furthering its continued upward evolution. Even now it would appear well within our grasp to determine new ways to achieve this. Each of us, if motivated strongly enough, has it within our power to increase not only our effective intelligence but also to achieve higher states of consciousness. This will be discussed in more detail in a later section.
