Francis Crick, Kari Mullis, many other scientists, and I, have Altered State inspired science in common. Francis wasn't as bold as some of us and chose to remain quiet, while perpetrating the fraud of Government.
The Double Helix Structure of DNA
He also believed that the DNA molecule came from elsewhere in the universe. Francis subscribed to “Panspermia”
Do humans have a political gene?
For me, Gregor Mendel reflects the epitome of an observer/experimenter. On his chart stands all of the science of modern genetics.
It occurred to me that if there was any genetic component to human political alignment then it should be easy to discover by direct observation of the voting results.
If one asks a population a political question (samples a gene pool by voting), then something resembling Mendel's R chart might be seen in the results if this were true.
I took the USA Presidential elections as an example, because it has basically a right and left system. (I compared it to other democracies and came up with three genetic principles seen in the tabulation of voting results)
The last few American Presidential elections (since figures of the turnout were kept 1960) exactly reflect Mendel's chart, in my view. 25% voted Republican, 25% voted Democratic, and 50% were of mixed left/right variance, and didn't vote. In fact the average ratio of the of the last 12 Presidential election outcomes, if you discard the high and low results is: A split of 6/ 4 (Rep to Dem) wins RR(25.78)+rr(24.22)+Rr(49.93)=100%
The other two Genetic principles displayed in the Voting results of European Democracies compared to North American are:
1. It is a well known fact that intelligence is a genetic, inherited trait. That it is a dominant allele, I am inferring due our species survival and progress, because as the turn-out of eligible voters approaches and surpasses 80%, the -Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium (HWE) of p^2, 2pq, q^2, where p is the frequency of the major allele, comes to mind. The optimum ratio of a dominant desirable trait (allele) in a free breeding population is 80%.
2. Genetic Drift to lower intelligence. These further results, pertaining to the American Presidential elections, indicate a decline of voter participation since the earliest (average of 1960, 1964, 1968= 61.93%) for which figures (the “Turnout”) were kept, until the last (average 1996, 2000, 2004= 51.87%). This is a (10.06%) (very) dramatic decline in less than 50 years...
Do the letters "GWB" figure into it anywhere?
I was celebrating winning an award and bursary for the highest marks in Belleville that semester in Molecular Biology with 2 hits of some very potent Windowpane LSD 25 when I first saw this very simple relationship. Instead of looking for little politicians inside the genes with a microscope, I simply counted the peas/ votes. The wrinkled ones and the smooth ones and the mixed ones. And to "harvest" the plants I used the published election results.
I know these are not exactly the same as Medel did with the R1 populations and such, but the premise is valid and the results are interesting in my opinion.
"It occurred to me that if there was any genetic component to human political alignment then it should be easy to discover by direct observation of the voting results. If one asks a population a political question (samples a gene pool by voting), then something resembling Mendel's R chart might be seen in the results if this were true."
One thing for sure I am the first to conceive of the idea of studying voting results to see if genetic principles can be observed.
As I have neither credentials nor foundation behind me, an amateur, I trust Google to be my witness and publishing forum. Hey you never know.! And if I had been shy and kept quiet and one day in the future someone else saw the obvious and made the claim I would be left saying "I thought of that way back... Honest!"
Yet on the other hand, I have more power than Gandhi in getting my word out effortlessly using the $45 computer from Free Geek. The Mahatma needed a whole commune dedicated to printing his publications in 4 languages to get his words out while I can spread my lofty notions and ironic potions at the speed of light almost with video on a vast ever growing cyber neural net which has nothing to stop it from becoming interplanetary in the future if things don't get out of hand environmentally here.
