Hidden Genes

Posted by jofr

It has been said when climbing mount Everest, the last hundred yards are the hardest. This is certainly true for writing a book as well. The longer it takes, the more difficult it becomes. The last meters are the worst. If you want it to be good, you have to read and proofread your own text over and over again until you cannot see it anymore and then still 10 times more.

But here it is, my new book named “Hidden Genes”, written in the last months of the global Coronavirus pandemic. I have sent a proposal to over 30 publishers, but almost all of them rejected the proposal. Therefore I have decided to publish it myself, using a self-publishing service. If you are an old-fashioned book lover like me, you can buy it here in the epubli shop or here at Amazon. I hope you will find it interesting, and the most typos should hopefully be eliminated now.

If you prefer to read the online version, you can download the PDF version of the book for FREE here: Hidden-Genes.

The book contains many insights posted before in this blog. It is also a bit of an adventure: to see if we can study things that can not be studied, if we can measure effects that can not be measured. Arthur C. Clarke said “the only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible”. In my opinion this journey was successful. The text contains in fact new, groundbreaking insights which you can read in this form nowhere else. I do not know why nobody else has discovered it before, except the few scientists who are mentioned in the book. Maybe nobody wanted to look. Or nobody dared to look. The Roman poet Virgil said 2000 years ago “fortune sides with him you dares”. Let us dare to have a look how the world works behind the scenes.

Are there any “hidden genes” in our world as the title suggests? Where are they hidden? And how do they work? The thesis of the book is that there are hidden genes that have not been recognized so far as what they are – genes that have the ability to create organisms if they are expressed regularly. They look different than classic DNA, but work in exactly the same way. The book shows where these hidden genes are exactly and how they are expressed (how often, by whom, and where), argues why this can go wrong, and explains what the result looks like. I hope it may help to inspire others on their journey to new insights. As J.W. Goethe said “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it”.
