Many men crossing the threshold of fifty arrive at a place in their lives where they are prompted to think more carefully about the things that seemed unimportant during earlier periods. Still working but at the sunset of their career or retired, sometimes voluntarily, sometimes before they are ready. Big ticket life debts like the mortgage and education are paid or nearly paid. Preoccupied with what they've accomplished and what comes next; what they're leaving behind materially and what will be passed on in their DNA as well as what they've learned and what they believe.
Psychologically challenging, their behaviour can be unpredictable in ways which people around them, especially partners and dependents, can find difficult.
Belief can appear more important in the scheme of life. Just as the blood and body carry a gentic code, the physical instructions, stored in chromosones and DNA,it stands to reason that belief can also be carried along with it. When we move from one place to another,across the street or around the world, we carry our genes and we also carry our beliefs.
The nihilists suggest we carry our beliefs in the brain, the spiritualists, the soul. So where in the brain are beliefs stored and where in us does the soul reside? We know which part of the brain governs memory, but we have yet to find the area that governs belief.
The Magic Helix explores beliefs and their influence on our lives because we make important decisions based upon what we believe and therefore it behooves us to understand and nuture those beliefs. In our evolving and revolving universe incidents are never repeated but they can be remembered in any number of versions.
The Magic Helix is a repository of beliefs that have formed out of memories and experiences, presented to entertain, educate and enlighten.
