With the hope that we can understand our position in history and the role of the evolutionary process, this transdisciplinary quest encourages human beings to reconsider their ideas relative to contemporary scientific research.
The Isis Thesis, the twelve published articles, and Balls of Fire deconstruct religion as science and present compelling new scientific research on evolution as they expose the complicated roots motivating biopower and zero in on the power/knowledge grid that thrives on the weaknesses of human beings.This research is motivated by my belief that early cultures and historical individuals possessed knowledge that would shed light on life and death, thereby eliminating the fear of the unknown for humans at death. If we can understand our obsessions, unify our sciences, and overcome our weaknesses through this knowledge, then we have used our free will to achieve our full potential. Perhaps we can humanize our viral behavior, mitigate the biological mechanisms that influence our culture, and eliminate war, genocide, and rivalry.
Judy K. King, M.A. is author of The Isis Thesis (presented at the 2006 International Congress for Young Egyptologists), The Road from Orion, 12 related scientific articles published in international journals, and Balls of Fire: a Science of Life and Death. Her credentials include 20 years of experience in adult education. Currently, King is a member of the Semiotic Society of America and a humanities instructor at North Central Michigan College.
In early 2006, Judy King submitted a scientific abstract to the review committee organized by the Universidade de Lisboa for the Second International Congress for Young Egyptologists to be held in Lisbon Portugal, October 23-26, 2006. The conference theme was "Erotica, Erotism and Sexuality in Ancient Egypt" relative to Religion and Afterlife, History and Daily Life, and Art and Literature. Presenting the paper "Biosemiotics in Ancient Egyptian Texts: the Key unlocking the Universal Secret of Sexuality," King explained the microbiological message of hybrid evolution in Egyptian funerary art and literature. Since biologists consider the union of genetic material as biological sex, the "Universal Secret of Sexuality" concerned horizontal gene transfer, the exchange of DNA between two species--organic human DNA and viral DNA. According to biologist Lynn Margulis in Microcosmos, "Even the infection of humans by an influenza virus is a sexual act in that genetic material inserts itself in our cells" (1986, 156). Here is King's presentation at the Museu da Farmácia Auditorium in Lisbon on October 25, 2006.
On September 29, 2015 at the University Center Gaylord in Michigan, Judy Kay King, M.A. introduced her new nonfiction book entitled Balls of Fire: a Science of Life and Death. This presentation on human evolutionary potential at death is part of King’s research program that she began in 2000 with The Isis Thesis: a Study decoding 870 Ancient Egyptian Signs. Her continuing research resulted in 12 peer-reviewed articles and presentations at international conferences (2005-2013). This research program exposes the hidden survival message in baseball, alchemy, literature, Christianity, world visions, our contemporary sciences, early cultures, and creative individuals.
The basic idea is that at a death transition we need new traits to be fit in a quantum environment, and so, the emergence of a new form is essential. Having evolutionary knowledge allows human DNA to emerge as a unique species (organic/viral) because the human brain/mind is grounded to our DNA. History keeps repeating this evolutionary message in the literature and art of early cultures and creative individuals. In this presentation, King briefly discusses the following nine (9) research topics:
1. Our minds and behavior may be grounded by the viral DNA in our genome.
2. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs invented baseball to describe a viral genetic switch between units of linked genes.
3. Our cosmos may be an illusion, a hologram, a projected shadow of the quantum world.
4. Different systems (viral proteins, spinning micro black holes, the holographic cosmos) behave similarly, exhibiting identical energy landscapes.
5. Our universe expands from the Big Bang like the tiny quantum protein universe expands from the Last Universal Common Ancestor (the LUCA) to the first cells.
6. The repeating evolutionary message in History can be found in many cultures: Ancient Egypt, Early China, Christianity, the Aztecs, Navajo, and Tarahumara, the reputable alchemists, as well as in our new sciences, in numerous creative individuals, and in the psychedelic rock of Woodstock 1969. (King briefly reviews lyrics of Blood, Sweat and Tears, Mountain, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Who, Greatful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix.)
7. The repeating survival message is about our potential for Regressive Evolution, a problem that evolutionary biologists have not worked out; however, both the successful theory of quantum mechanics and our historical and contemporary behavior support that human beings have the potential for Regressive Evolution.
8. Many early cultures may have used mind-expanding drugs (psychoactive substances or entheogens) to tap into Nature’s quantum knowledge of biology, physics and cosmology.
9. As living beings on Earth, our consciousness may be grounded by our DNA, so that we can discover how to evolve at death.
