There are certain times in history when our world view undergoes fundamental shifts and the theories that may have previously seemed to be cut in stone are suddenly questioned and at the very least considered as inadequate. An obvious such point in time is the scientific revolution in the early 17th century when Galilei and Kepler introduced a totally new approach to gaining knowledge. Experiments and instruments were introduced and the first mathematical laws of nature were formulated resulting in Descartes philosophy of rational empiricism, which meant that theories had to corroborate the actual observation of nature. The broader philosophy underlying this may be said to have been deism, in other words the idea that the universe was like a clockwork which God had started, never intervened in and so would operate according to the laws of nature until the end of time.
A second significant shift in the scientific world view may be said to have come with the introduction of the concept of evolution notably through Darwin’s theory. This was not only a reflection of a new notion of time, but also a view of our origins that excluded any role of a creative intelligence behind the workings of the universe. This atheist approach to science has since then become somewhat of a dogma and has profoundly influenced the kind of questions that scientists have been asking. While the good side of this may be that much religious bias have been removed from science, the negative aspect is that it has excluded holistic approaches to it that would explain how everything in nature is connected. Thus, only if you accept that there is a unified plan behind the existence of the universe do you have any reason to consider a holistic approach.
I want to encourage the reader to consider the possibility that the work of Jean-Claude Perez belongs to a new and fundamentally different paradigm of science, one that uses the established methods of rational empiricism to elucidate ignificant relationships, but does not reject the possibility that our universe has an intelligent origin. This, I believe, is the kind of science that is at its forefront in our own particular time. Fascinating in this respect is Dr Perez recontextualization of Mendeleïev’s periodic system of the elements, a typical example of how a theory attains a new meaning even though its previous formulation had been perceived as cut in stone. Hence, Perez work entices us to explore intelligent causes underlying the relationships of nature without putting in question the empirical facts that have been gathered about it.
Fascinating are also Dr Perez studies of the presence of the so-called Golden Ratio in the nucleic acids. The Golden Ratio and its associated Fibonacci numbers have been known to play a role in the geometry of nature for at least 800 years, but what is fundamentally new in Perez treatise is that he studies the information content of the DNA in light of the Golden Ratio rather than merely its geometry. This leads us to various relationships pointing to an order behind the emergence of the biological organisms the study of which may now only have started. A fundamental conclusion that can be drawn from the relationships that Dr Perez has discovered is that the DNA sequences of all organisms must have emerged, or have been created, as a whole. They have in other words not emerged through random chemical reactions. I believe Dr Perez has here discovered something that simply cannot be accommodated by the previous scientific paradigm that looks upon biological evolution as a whim of nature. This discovery alone has so wide-ranging ramifications for all of biology, and especially molecular biology, that it should prompt researchers either to refute his claims or to widen the framework of their own analysis.
It is through this holism that it becomes clear that Dr Perez’ work is part of a new scientific revolution, one that brings us back to a meaningful view of the universe, which has a source that we may call « intelligent ». While much of his work requires quite a degree of specialized knowledge to understand these conclusions by hemselves are important enough to deserve the attention of the entire scientific community, as well as the broadly interested public. In a sense Dr Perez work thus means a return to a science, which acknowledges as meaningful some of the numerological relationships that were typical of many ancient peoples of our planet. Yet, this return to seeing a higher meaning and purpose of nature here takes place at a new level where the methodology and mathematical means of analysis of science are recognized as necessary for the new quest. Ultimately, any understanding of a higher purpose of the universe will have to rely on such reality checks and it is only if it does so that there will be a true value of this new wave of science in helping us understand what it means to be a human being.
