This brief and simple discernment is to further elaborate on https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36236112-dna-is-not-destiny, https://www.amazon.com/DNA-NOT-Destiny-Affirmations-Designed-ebook/dp/B084Y7QFSS, and among others. And as well as to complement diverse past discernments:
DNA is not destiny for many reasons. And based on many evidence and empirical data:
1.0 Is affected by environment such as nature spectra-field, rhythm, and elements; nutrition, habitat, climate, and so on.
2.0 Natural selection.
3.0 Mind such as inspirations, aspirations, yearnings, emancipation, emotion, intention, cognition, and so on. And which indicated thought alone or just existing affects biologic-genetic.
4.0 Ways of life and practices whether unconscious or conscious.
5.0 The transcendence or perception and experience beyond the known physical world. A simple way of saying is holistic or wholeness experience or not only local but also non-local experience.
all these affect the genome positively or negatively or for good or bad (individual and collective) in the known physical world. And beyond. And for which observable (and currently non observable. Another way of saying is there are observable genome or biologic physical genome processes and mechanisms pertaining to the known physical world. And currently non-observable spirit genome or form-formless processes and mechanisms beyond the known physical world. And they are interdependent and interconnected) genetic transformation mechanisms such as genetic mutation and epigenetic are possible. And which indicated there are aspects of life and existence that are deterministic (and inclusive or applicable to all) such as the underlying universal process of being and becoming to facilitate the process of being and becoming. And there are aspects of life that are non-deterministic such as mentioned in 1.0-5.0. And which implied such as free will and essence of being or core aspects of self-realization and self-actualization process.
Certain biologic and gene expression can be fixed or enhanced through gene therapy. However, for them to properly manifest, development and living are still necessary. (for example, gene therapy to improve cognition and or senses would not be much effective or useful if they are not complement by experience. Otherwise, not only their potential would not be developed. Rather also eventually would be degenerated such as through epigenetic process, And eventually genetic mutation process). And certain biologic and gene expression can only be fixed or enhanced through ways of life and existence or development and living experience or epigenetic.
As just mentioned, gene therapy cannot fix nor enhance everything or are far more limited than convention thinking (such as spirit or form-formless genome or the many sentient composite body-mind system), in particularly when biologic-genetic expression comes down to experience of life and existence. And genetic mutation is less dynamic non-deterministic and epigenetic is far more dynamic non-deterministic of the human nature and potential (and since they are intertwined and entangled, potentialities of possibilities are increased). And which are reasons for existence or mechanisms such as elasticity, plasticity, molecular genesis, neurogenesis, epigenetic, genetic mutation, and diverse endowed, embodied, and facilitated observable and non-observable bio-transmutations) in or as parts the process of individual and collective being and being in the known physical world. And beyond.
And thus, clearly indicated life and existence are continuous process of emergence of being and becoming from aspects of 1.0-5.0 which also indicated or constituted essence of being attributes such as free will, heart care, mind care, consciousness-awareness, wisdom, and complementary characters. Therefore, development and living that better the human or sentient conditions, transformation, experience, well being, and potential in the known physical world. And beyond would be meaningful and purposeful. And realistic, practical, and wise.
