Our DNA sings the song of the Lord Most High.
I created this body performance work in my studio in January of 2023 during a psychotic episode. I had recently viewed a Tik Tok featuring an unknown scientist in an undisclosed location. A rough transcription of his lecture is as follows:
“As a scientist, I thought that if we only looked at the elements of life, or if we only looked at spiritual texts, you’d never know the full story. iI is instead by blending. We have word and number. We have the periodic table and numeric parameters. In the Zahar, there are letters and alphabets. Every ancient alphabet has always had a mysterious number codified alongside it, and they never change. The study of this code is called gematria. Gematria was formalized in the second century. Our ancestors talked about life in letters and numbers, just as we do with the periodic table. It is possible to look at human DNA and correlate these numbers. It took me 12 years. The atomic mass numbers correlate. Hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon. The numbers are 1, 5, 6, and 3. When you then take a table and correlate, the DNA is built in layers. In DNA the introduction in the same in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Sanskrit. The numbers spell out:
GOD ETERNAL IN THE BODY
God’s name depicted in the ancient texts is so sacred it cannot be written. It has to be a code.”
This is confirmed by further research, as found in the text The God Code: The Secret of Our Past, the Promise of Our Future, which was written by computer systems designer Gregg Braden in the 90s. This information stunned me. I found it to be so intoxicating I could barely breathe. I was in a dream for months. I found GD everywhere. He is everywhere. That morning in my studio, I picked up a Hebrew dictionary and opened up to a random page. I looked at the first word my eye glanced at. It was “born.” I immediately picked up an Xacto knife and scratched the letters into my leg. I felt reborn. GD is real. We are Eternal.
