"...this book is really a masterpiece."
Dr. Ludwig Edelmann, Universität des Saarlandes, Homburg, Germany
"...sophisticated and essential. This book will guide its readers to the new era of genuine biology,"
Dr. Hirohisa Tamagawa, Gifu University, Gifu, Japan
"... if widely taught to the younger generation, we could have a much better chance to save life on earth."
Prof. Miklós Kellermayer, University of Pécs, Pécs, Hungary
On June 28, 2000, Anjetta McQueen of the Associated Press made banner headlines with her report in major U.S. newspapers: a study of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (Project 2061) showed that 9th through 12th grade biology textbooks uniformly fail to convey "big ideas." This is grave news. It means that entire future generations of Americans might not be adequately educated in fundamental biology, the only remaining and still largely unexplored major body of basic knowledge. Thus handicapped, they might not be able to effectively cope with imminent critical issues, including the following:
AIDS - a disease unknown 25 years ago - is devastating the human population in entire sections of the African continent. In America alone, 1500 men, women and children die of cancer everyday. There is no cure for either. Drugs sold to alleviate suffering are developed by the exceedingly expensive and inefficient methods of random chance, and thus are unavailable to all but the wealthy. Even more worrisome is the impending exhaustion (in 40 to 50 years) of oil and natural gas, which now provide energy for virtually all the essential activities of modern society - including drug manufacturing and farming. The question is who is going to combat and resolve these problems before it is too late? Whoever they are, they must include students who are now taking, or will be taking, courses in high school and college biology.
We do not train soldiers by encouraging them to watch cartoons all day long. Why then should we train our future scientist-warriors by befuddling them with an unending regimen of Technicolor trivia? Instead, we must train and prepare those who are qualified and interested in becoming scientists to be honest, courageous and dedicated to the search for truth. We must teach them how to think for themselves and help them to develop the skills and habits necessary to independently acquire knowledge from outside the classroom. We must see to it that they grasp the essence of the very latest fundamental biological truths. To achieve all this quickly will not be easy. What is needed is a magic bridge. Fortunately, Life at the Cell and Below-Cell Level is just that and more.
A Magic bridge to the Missing "Big Ideas"
Life at the Cell and Below-Cell Level is a magic bridge leading to a hitherto invisible world of knowledge - a world based on the Association-Induction (AI) Hypothesis, a unifying theory of life at the cell and below-cell level. From its very inception, the AI Hypothesis has generated a constellation of subsidiary "big ideas," including the first and only theory of how drugs control cell function in molecular and electronic terms.
The AI Hypothesis and its subsidiary "big ideas" have long passed the stage of being categorized as mere complex hypotheses. Over the past 40 years, they have been validated, without exception, time and time again by a steady, worldwide stream of experimentation and scientific papers. The AI Hypothesis, its subsidiary "big ideas," and the key experimental results that have validated them are the main subjects of Life at the Cell and Below-Cell Level. The book also offers a variety of ancillary materials that will, in the course of perhaps a few days to a few weeks, help transform seriously-interested readers into well-rounded authorities on this major field of knowledge - so much so that they will, without hesitation, take up the task of imparting this new knowledge to others, or perhaps continue the research themselves. Only then can they have an even chance of averting the disastrous course that might follow and, instead, embark on a course of hope - a course that will eventually lead to victory.
