Failure to recognize the true nature and application of psychedelic substances stems primarily from the insistence of modern scientists to view the universe as a physical mechanism. Invisible energy and transpersonal levels of awareness are essentially ignored. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and a number of other scientists have now established that the previously strongly held views on the function of genes have now been found inaccurate.

The first, The Human Genome Project, is a less complex overview; the second, Nature, Nurture and Human Development, is more detailed and is complete with references.
