 The Purpose  of   HEALING - K.I.S.S.

- as stated 12 years ago - was and is

  to help me and my potential P E E R s 

"to HEAL ourselves into WHOLEness,

and - by extension - all of CREATion!"
Intro to Healing-K.i.s.s. 2001-2013
and Overview of its main libraries

[If you look for a word on this page,

I focus my experiencing and awareness on being
"a   pioneer of  Evolution  in  learning  to  feel":
I let my Body vibrate and my Heart 'womb'

pain, shame, fear, boredom, powerlessness,
so feelings can >heal >guide>fulfill
and ~~~ offer ~~~"goldmines"~~~ to us all!!
"I want you to feel everything, every little thing!"





Following my understanding and new lekh-lekhâ on January 1, 2009,
  that - after 7 years - I should no longer create new pages on my 2 websites,
but intermingle the evidence of new experiences with that on existing pages,
I am
on Febr. 8, 2009, interspersing photos reminiscent - by contrast - of a painful scene in my drama.
This scene was probably meant to provide me with a learning experience concerning 'Embedded Denial'
a concept, which appeared for the first time in the second Interview with the Folk
.and helped me a lot

Today, on Febr. 15, 2009, I have "completed" the fine-tuning to that drama - also with the help of the contrasting images,
the sequence of which is interspersed throughout 8 Interviews with Deity, with its closure on "Grandfather-Pages"!

Tomorrow I'm supposed to go back to the circumstances of that drama and cope with my present main actress
in wholeness - with love and laughter - while heeding the advice of not coming close until invited ~~~~!

Interview with 'the Folks'
channeled on 2004_09_29; checked for updates in the original on 2009_02_08; latest update of this page: Nov. 2-4, 2011          
    [as to the "mythology" of "Godchannel" see pp39 "Deity & Manifestation"]

Channelers' note: After suspending public channeling of Spirit and Body on the site a few years ago,
we continue to channel for ourselves, and for our off-line healing work.
For several years now in private channeling we've been communicating
with the healed, parental parts of the Mother and Spirit.
To us they are like a couple~~~
him in alignment with her, and not the other way around.
Also, it feels to us that the 'voice' is Spirit's~~~
but now speaking on behalf of the Mother and himself, as her Spirit.

We refer to them and address both of them together as 'the Folks.'
In a departure from customary usage on the site,
'Us,' 'We' and 'Our' are capitalized when they are referring to themselves,
and not capitalized when they are referring to us humans and them together.
Here is their first public channeling...

Channelers: Hello Folks, what can you tell us about the progress of the healing work so far?

Spirit and the Mother:

"Much healing has happened toward the end of suffering in those doing the healing work,
and of course much more still needs healing,
even in those of you who have been working the hardest.
Realizing this can feel discouraging.

To progress in the healing work,
any feelings of discouragement
must be felt, expressed and moved as well.

February 2009

A good beginning....

whispered my daughter-in-love,

"try to catch a photo of how Tomer
(her stepson -14)
reads a Good Night story to Mika
(her daughter - 3).

I sat in the corner across Mika's bed
and conveyed Efrat's quest
to my grandson
as gently as possibly.

And he did agree!



At that hour I did not know,
that the next morning I would attract
a formidable trigger from Tomer.




Nor that my too slow healing
of that trigger from Tomer
would electrify the atmosphere
towards a much bigger trigger,
which I attracted later that day,
on the Eve of Shabbat,
from my daughter-in-love.
The pain and rage kindled in me
was of the kind
that I felt I couldn't heal it in myself,
until I had first "utilized" it
for healing something in HER....

After a sleepless night
of trying to figure out,
how to do that
with minimal damage
(= her feeling to be blamed,
and letting all hell break loose),
I thought I had found a way,
I approached her on Shabbat morning,
but I failed utterly and totally....

"Healing into wholeness means more than just the end of suffering in yourself.

"The Mother has three core desires.

"Her first desire is that the suffering end~~~ for all beings in Creation.

"Her second desire is that all fragments of her lost Will essence return to wholeness with her.

This desire
has been the focus
of the channeling and healing work
here on this web site.

"The Mother's third desire goes beyond even wholeness.
The most important desire in Creation is the realization of the Mother's dream.

"This is where all of the healing work is heading,
so when you speak of 'progress' We can say

that there has been a quickening of the healing movement,

"and at the same time an intensification of the denial energy
that opposes loving Light and wholeness."
[I experience this in the week of November 2-4, 2011...]



After a disastrous breakfast and before their even more disastrous drive
to friends, who spent their annual leave from USA in Israel,
Pilot-Abba wants to show Mika photos of their trip to New York last year,
but she wants to recite loudly and "write":
"I am dancing ballet"
The letters she scribbles over and over again, look like "R-R-R",
- once the initials of her grandparents: Rachel-Rafael-Rosenzweig...

While the three are away, I feel free to put things right with Tomer.
He is ready "to heal my wound" concerning broken promises by joining me - rightaway! - on the hike we had planned.
He allows me to take one picture
("but not with the cigarette"...),
and since it is the only picture, which exists of the sequence of experiences, which ended well with him, but very "bad" with E.
I insert this photo here - as a consolation...

Tomer sits on a stone of a delapidated Arab village - which I discovered on my lonely hike the day before.
In order to NOT wait for him to get up from bed and then blaming him for not having kept his word,
I left the house to enjoy the now so beautiful environment on a day of spring and fresh green grass,
and came across an ancient site , perhaps from the Byzanthine period, with surprising remnants.
Adjacent to this site I entered a location, which I believe to be one of the 500 Arab villages,
which Israel destroyed after the so-called War of Independence, or in Arabic "Al-Nakba".
It is the sequence of the photos of these two forsaken sites, which I want to insert here.


Thank you Folks.
What is the Mother's dream

"The Mother's dream is
that all beings in Creation
experience their true grandeur and greatness.
And in their greatness, do whatever they desire.

"The Mother's deepest desire is
that you and everyone else in Our Creation
be completely free
and empowered
to do whatever you want,
go wherever you wish
and be with whomever you choose.


"At first your mind will have difficulty understanding how this could be possible,
but We can assure you it is not only possible, but necessary.
Free Will,
completely free
and joyous
in the presence of unwavering loving Light
is the truly natural way in our Creation.
And this Creation is the basis of your own Creation
and the full manifestation of your greatness."


Having left through that northern gate of the security fence around Bet Nehemya, to which the "Gate-Story" and a specific wound I attracted from Tomer, is connected,
I can breathe more and more freely, the more I leave behind the garbage polluted environment of the village, to which the family had regretably moved on July 31, 2008.

Thank you Folks.
Wow, lots more questions come up~~~
First, you mentioned that the denial energy is becoming more intense.
We've noticed a huge increase in denial energy on the planet over the past several years.
There seems to be no end in sight to how badly things can go on a planetary scale.
What else can you tell us about this?


"You are seeing the denials of the Mother's dream becoming stronger
as more lost Will comes back into wholeness with her.

"Her desires are gaining more acceptance and more loving Light,
and therefore her power to manifest her desires is increasing.
As We regain Our lost Will essence,
the energies that would prevent us all from manifesting her dream
are increasing as well.

"Your perception of the intensification of denial energy is a sign
that you are finding more of the lost parts of the Mother in yourself.
If the outer world is reflective of what is inside of you,
and of course it is~~~

you are seeing your own denials reflected 'out there.'"



After five minutes down-north I reach this junction of trails -
" either I walk under Highway 6 to the east, to the Immanuel-Cave, or I try a new trail further up and north."
I chose the latter option.
On the following photos I include the strong traffic on the Highway by intention,
since it demonstrates my pain
- voiced ever so often during the 6 months of disappointment with my children's move to Bet Nehemya -
that there is "no true Nature" around here.



Thank you. Folks, what do you suggest we do here by way of healing?

"Some of the denials you are experiencing are still Spirit's~~~
in the form of either Ahriman or Lucifer, depending on the situation.

This denial energy is of course also there in your own spirit
as judgments held in the conditioning of your mind.
When feeling the Mother's pain,
find the judgments and release them.


"However, most of the new denial energy becoming apparent on Earth now
is the much deeper and more intense denial energy of the asuras.
It may seem to you that you are not involved with this level of denial,
the energy that powers wars
and the deceit and treachery
in the local, national and international politics of your civilization,
but that is an error in perception.
[see how I try very hard to adopt this perception - on the day of Israel's elections, Febr.10, 2009]


"The truth is that even events at the planetary level of your reality
are part of your own venue or 'movie.'


"This is good news, because when you fully understand the implications,
you know that it is within your power to remove this level of denial~~~
from yourself and the planet.

The asuric energy of hatred, destruction and death needs to be released back to its right place~~~
the void.


"This is easier to do than it seems.
Working alone or with others,
you can do the practice of true sacrifice

to release the asuric energy that is becoming rampant in your world.
The only difference in working at the world level is
to realize
that each human you perceive as having this energy in them
is a reflection of parts of your deep self that are in need of healing.

Right at the beginning of the trail which winds upwards I discover an amazing site,
and according to a mosaic floor identify it as from the Byzanthine time.
Try as I might, I could not find any info on the Internet.
How come that there is no debris, no rubble at all?

"Releasing denial energy
in those you consider to be greater than yourself
and oppressive to you in some way
provides you with another advantage.
In doing this,
you regain the part of your own greatness that you have denied in yourself~~~
and projected onto them and other 'authority figures.'
[about "Greatness and Grandeur" see pp33]


"To release denial at the planetary level of your being,
it is good to realize that we are working together.
Your spirit aligns with Loving Spirit,
Loving Spirit of course aligns with the Mother~~~
and your Will aligns with the Mother's desire for her wholeness
and the realization of her dream.

In this alignment, from the deepest parts of yourself
you have the power to remove denial energy from the 'larger than life' humans
who use it for power.


"The reflections you are now seeing in wars and power-over leadership on Earth
reflect deep transpersonal realities
that have been in place since before Earth was created.
At one point a class of warrior spirits emerged
as a response to the deep gap between Us,
and they are now in manifestation.

On one side are warriors for Spirit,
on the other are warriors for the Mother.
The Spirit Warriors are by far the most dominant, and now in most positions of power on Earth.

[coincidence; just yesterday, Nov. 1. 2011, I re-edited the pages 70-79 in my edition of the Blue RUOW Book,
and there one story of the "Warriors" and their role on earth at the time of "The Land of Pan" is mentioned.]

"Warrioring is not limited to those in the military.
and the media
are all bastions of Spirit Warrior strength.

Their agenda appears to be power and wealth,
however their deepest mission is to stamp out every vestige of the Mother's presence on Earth.
Their technology seeks to replace the Will
so their spirits will no longer have to feel any of the Mother's pain.


"Ahriman is the 'god' on whose behalf they hurt and kill.
In human form they marched in the Crusades,
burned witches,
eradicated indigenous people,
subjugated women,
and declared wars of all kinds.
They are essentially denial spirits with unloving intent in human form.

"Directly confronting these beings is not the way to deal with them.
Finding what they are reflecting in yourself
and removing the denial energy is.


"A word of caution,
once you have released denial energy
as suggested in practicing true sacrifice,

it is important to lovingly feel back into the 'bad' feeling you started with.
The denial release clears the space for your loving acceptance of the feeling.
If the feeling is left on the other side of the gap after your denial release,
the gap will remain open.

It is through the open gaps still between Us that the asuras enter our Creation, and of course yourself."

An ugly old sofa stuck upright in this cistern, perhaps in order to avoid that some animal or person would fall into it.
Since it spoiled the view of the pretty ancient site, I worked hard on pulling the sofa out,
on dismantling it and discarding the pieces somewhere, where they would not disturb.

Thank you very much.
With the recent rise in the power and ferocity of the Warriors,
it seems to be getting much darker on the planet.
How do you suggest we deal with the sense of powerlessness and depression
that is triggered by world events
and seems to be pervasive among those of us doing the healing work?


"Part of the healing work is learning
how to love and nurture yourselves
in the presence of apparent limitations.

You have decided to embark on the long and difficult journey
of healing to wholeness.
This journey has never been completed before, anywhere in Creation.
Attempts have been made~~~
but complete wholeness,
the return of  A L L  of the Mother's lost fragments
has yet to be accomplished.


"As We mentioned earlier,
there is more at stake here than simply ending suffering on Earth.
As you find more of the deeper, intensely suffering lost parts of the Mother,
you find more of the intensely ferocious denial energy
that has kept them isolated, lost and unlovable.
Your outer reality at the world level is reflecting this denial energy

as it leaves your personal domain and moves outward toward the void.
[[??? Please help me understand this!]]


"As mentioned in the Letter to Those Doing the Healing Work,
there are times when it will seem that you are completely on your own,
with no sense of direction
and with no connection to Us for guidance and support.

It is in times like these
that you will have to rely on your faith in yourself and your healing process.
These outer reflections would not be here
if you weren't already succeeding in your healing.
Use them as a sign you are nearing the end of this part of the journey,
and as an opportunity to remove more denial energy from the planet."



Okay Folks, thank you very much.
Folks, are you saying that the more we heal,
the worse it gets in the outer reflection?

"Yes, but only in the reflection at the global level.
Here in your more immediate movie,
you will find things improving
as you release more denial energy,
redeem lost spirit essence
and reclaim more of your lost Will.
As you find more acceptance for your emotional essence,
it is easier to be in acceptance of everything else that is going on around you.

"As you accept more of whatever reality is coming into your immediate domain,
the denial energy at the global level is more apparent."


Thank you Folks, what should we do to accept the denial energy at the global level?


"There is a vital understanding about denial that We have learned only recently,
and most humans with healing intent have yet to learn.
It is not possible to accept denial [7 words stressed in the original] energy, at any level.
This is why it must be released.

Denial does not belong in manifestation, its right place is the void.


"Denial is negation, and is therefore nothing.
At the deepest level of reality, where there is no denial, there is only love.

Love is all that is,
and acceptance is where love begins.

"Denial is the negation of love.
Love moves to include, denial moves to separate.
When denial is present it acts on acceptance like anti-matter acts on matter.

Denial annihilates acceptance.
We have been stymied in the healing work for eons by trying to accept denial energy.
The more we accepted it, the stronger it became.

Denial has shown Us that it does not want acceptance,
and that it will increase in intensity until our acceptance is gone.


"Releasing denial energy, however, is remarkably easy.
Releasing judgments releases denial,

and releasing asuric energy releases even the most intense and entrenched denial energy.
Healing at any level is impossible in the presence of denial.

"As you release the denial energy
as suggested in the judgment release practice and true sacrifice,

you are able to heal the gap that had been occupied by the denial.
After a denial release,
the spirit in you simply moves
to find loving acceptance for the emotional essence
that had been separated from the rest of you by the denial.
This is the crux of the healing work,
remove denial and then lovingly accept what you had been denying."



Thank you for the clarification, Folks.
In feeling into the reflections from the world stage,
we've found a kind of denial energy
that does not seem to respond
to the deep denial, asuric release practice
in true sacrifice.

What can you tell us about this?


"Original Heart tells us that it will never again be so~~~
that complete wholeness means only one being, with no peers.
When you are doing the healing work at the world level,
it will not be a solitary affair.
The planetary or world level reflections are shared by all of humanity.
In releasing denial energy and healing gaps at this level of reality,
you will be working together in cooperation with other humans.

"The same practices suggested in true sacrifice will apply.
However, the humans doing the work
will be embodying Our two essences along with New Heart and Body.
Further, each human will represent one of the four parts of deity in the healing ceremony."

Thank you Folks. But this sounds scary.
Aren't there dangers in doing something like this?


"Yes, and of course this is advanced work.
Only those who have cleared their personal imprints from this lifetime
and have experience in helping Us heal Our imprints at the transpersonal level
will be able to work successfully at the planetary level.
Please contact Us on the inside for more specific understandings
about how to proceed with this aspect of the healing work."


Yikes! Okay, Folks. We'll be doing that, for sure.
Is it okay to talk a little more here about
the 'cooperation' you mentioned?
Where do we find others to work with,
and how do we relate with them?

"At present there are two distinct modes of relating among humans, cooperation and competition.
Cooperation is like acceptance, it is inclusive and supportive.
Competition is like denial, it excludes and moves to surpass.
is a reflection of love for self, projected onto peers.

Competition is a reflection of denial of self, projected onto peers.

Cooperation begets unity and understanding.
Competition begets separateness and suspicion.


"Competition in relating comes from imprinted, unmoving fear
and reenacts the superiority imprint.

When your frozen terror
of being an outcast and separate fragment
begins to move in loving acceptance,

your taste for competition will fade.
When the denial is removed
and you have lovingly accepted all of the terror,
you will feel yourself to be safe, no matter what.

It is then that Original Heart's desire for peers
will naturally draw you toward


"There have been many gaps between humans doing the healing work
because they have not yet found and moved all of their terror about themselves as a separate fragment.
Concern over your 'point of emergence' and 'position relative to the gap' are examples of places
where frozen terror has not yet begun to move.
These concepts are helpful in triggering the terror,
but true human greatness will never be found in competition with others.


"Your true greatness can only be found
when you can find it in all other humans as well.
You are neither superior nor inferior to anyone else.
When you find equally powerful and knowledgeable people
with strong healing intent
with whom you are willing to work
in cooperation,
you will know how to relate with them.

In the meantime, keep working on finding and moving your frozen terror.
Terror of being a fragment, separate, lost, and less-than
that is freely moving in your own loving acceptance
is the key to the energetic excitement necessary for this next part of the healing work."

Okay Folks, thank you very much.

February 13, 2009

The book was published in Sept. 2008
and seems to have been translated since.
[On May 23, 2011 ,
I found out about a translation]



The titles of previous books by Joachem Bauer also show,

that this man must be

one of my hidden peers:

"Why I feel what you feel. Intuitive communication
and the secret
of mirror neurones"

(Warum ich fühle, was du fühlst.
Intuitive Kommunikation und das Geheimnis der Spiegelneurone

See the fantastic reviews!

Joachim Bauer was born in Tuebingen
October 1951, i.e. he was 6 years old,
when I began to study at
Tuebingen's University....

From Joachim Bauer's homepage

and later he made his Abitur
in the same town, Stuttgart,
in which I made mine, in 1957.

In "Nano", 3 SAT, I learnt something today which made me clap my hands with excitement.

Das kooperative Gen: Abschied vom Darwinismus von Joachim Bauer

The cooperative gene: farewell to darwinism, by Joachim Bauer

Searching for info in English, I find an entry which challenges not only Darwin but also Dawkin's "The selfish Gene".

"Kommunikation und Kooperation zeigen sich schon auf molekularer Ebene
"Communication and Cooperation
show themselves already on the molecular level"

"Die Botschaft lautet:
Lebewesen mitsamt ihren Genen sind keine steuerlos auf dem Fluss der Erdgeschichte treibenden Objekte,
sondern Akteure der Evolution.
Als deren Grundprinzipien erweisen sich Kooperation, Kommunikation und Kreativität."

"The message is:
Living beings including their genes
are not objects floating rudderless on the stream of the planet's history,
but actors of the evolution.
Its basic principles are proven as
cooperation, communication and creativity."


"Organisms, from single cells to humans,
could only appear and continue to take shape
because the gene system follows three biological principles:
cooperation, communication and creativity.

Joachim Bauer: Sozial und resonanzfähig
In der neueren neurobiologischen Forschung ist häufig vom "social brain" zu lesen.
Unser Gehirn ist eben ein soziales Organ, es ist angewiesen auf zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation,
deshalb sind wir Menschen primär auf Resonanz und auf Kooperation gepolt.
Das Gehirn belohnt das Miteinander durch Ausschüttung gewisser Botenstoffe, die ein Wohlbefinden erzeugen.
Und alle neuronalen Motivationssysteme sind darauf ausgerichtet,
Wertschätzung, Zuwendung, Bestätigung durch andere zu finden.
Professor Joachim Bauer, Arzt für Psychosomatische Medizin an der Freiburger Universitätsklinik, zeigt,
warum der Egoismus der menschlichen Natur zuwiderläuft

Against and in favor of Joachim Bauer's theories:
Diese Aspekte habe Bauer "völlig korrekt wieder gegeben - zum Beispiel die Erkenntnis, dass Gen-Verdoppelungen oder auch das sogenannte Exon-Shuffling, das    Austauschen    und    neu    Zusammenwürfeln    einzelner    Module von Genen,    die wesentliche Triebkraft der Evolution von Genomen darstellen". Recht habe der Autor auch damit, dass die erbguteigenen Umbauwerkzeuge den Wandel vorantrieben. "Diese Phänomene der molekularen Evolution sind unter Genetikern und Evolutionsbiologen allgemein akzeptiert", befindet die Evolutionsbiologin Professor Susanne Dobler von der Universität Hamburg

Contra Darwin: Das Erbgut steuert mit
Joachim Bauer zufolge gehen Darwins moderne Anhänger bis heute davon aus, die Selektion sei das "einzige Steuerungsprinzip hin zu neuen Arten","dass Arten überwiegend deshalb zugrunde gehen, weil sie einer fortwährenden Selektion ausgesetzt sind, stimmt so nicht". Zwar bestreitet der Mediziner nicht, "das Mutationen sich ständig ereignen". Eine Körperzelle könne aber "Einfluss nehmen, ob und wo sie sich ereignen".

Hauptursache für den massenhaften Untergang von Arten seien globale Katastrophen gewesen, die durch Vulkanismus, durch Meteoreinschläge oder durch beides verursacht waren. "Allein innerhalb der letzten 500 Millionen Jahre gab es fünf solche Mega-Ereignisse; einige davon hätten beinahe allem Leben den Garaus gemacht", sagt Bauer. "Diese Ereignisse sind alles andere als das, was Darwin sich als das steuernde Prinzip der Selektion vorstellte, denn sie waren für alles, was lebte, eine Katastrophe."

Doch wie soll das Erbgut auf ökologischen Druck reagiert haben? "Genome besitzen genetische Werkzeuge, mit denen sie quasi ihre eigene Architektur verändern können", antwortet Bauer. "Eine der wichtigsten Möglichkeiten, dies zu tun, ist, Gene zu verdoppeln." Dies geschehe bevorzugt dann, "wenn die äußeren Lebensbedingungen für das Leben als Ganzes bedrohlich werden". Das Leben suche, "indem es seine Gene selbst verändert, sozusagen nach einem Ausweg".

Dabei würden "bevorzugt solche Gene verdoppelt, die bereits in starkem Gebrauch waren" und sich als nützlich erwiesen haben. Im Anschluss daran gebe die Zelle "die Kopie für Mutationen frei, während sie das Original, das sich ja bewährt hat, konserviert". Darin sieht Joachim Bauer eine im Erbgut angelegte "geniale Strategie", um sich aus der ökologischen Klemme zu befreien.
Für Bauer sind die in seinem Buch diskutierten Fragen "für jeden von Bedeutung". Es sei in den Genen keineswegs unveränderlich vorherbestimmt, wie wir sind. Vielmehr habe "die Art, wie wir leben, Einfluss auf unsere Gene". Denn Erbanlagen "empfangen Signale und reagieren auf sie, kommunizieren also mit der Umwelt. Sie steuern nicht nur, sie werden auch gesteuert".

Zweierlei räumt der Freiburger Mediziner allerdings gerne ein. Erstens bleibe Darwin "einer der großen Aufklärer der Neuzeit". Und zweitens bleibe Vieles in Sachen Evolution noch völlig ungeklärt. Zwar sei "experimentell gut belegt, dass es schwere äußere Stressoren sind, die Genome veranlassen, ihre genetischen Umbauwerkzeuge zu aktivieren und ihre Architektur zu verändern", etwa Radioaktivität oder Nahrungsmangel. "Über die konkreten Ursachen der schubartigen Veränderungen, die sich in der Evolution tatsächlich abgespielt haben, wissen wir aber kaum etwas." Es sei denn, das Futter am Boden würde mal wieder knapp und einige Tiere reckten sich den Baumwipfeln zu.


Gene als molekulare „Kommunikatoren“ und „Kooperatoren“

Nicht nur die Theorie vom ausschließlich zufallsgesteuerten Gang der Evolution stehe auf dem Prüfstand. Auch populäre Konzepten wie jenes der „egoistischen Gene“, denen der Soziobiologe Richard Dawkins in den 70er Jahren ein bis heute viel gelesenes Buch widmete, müssten, so Bauer, vor dem Hintergrund der modernen Genforschung revidiert werden. Gene seien keine autonomen, unabhängig von der Umwelt arbeitenden Instanzen. Zwar sei der „Text“ der Gene (die so genannte „kodierende Region“) unveränderlich, die Aktivität der Gene sei jedoch fortlaufenden Änderungen unterworfen und werde durch Signale aus der Umwelt reguliert, ein als „Genregulation“ bezeichneter Umstand. „Gene und Umwelt stehen in einem permanenten Dialog“, so Bauer. Doch Gene seien nicht nur „Kommunikatoren“, sondern auch „Kooperatoren“, denn ein Gen könne alleine gar nichts ausrichten. Es könne nur dann in Aktion treten, wenn es mit zahlreichen weiteren Molekülen in kooperative molekulare Wechselwirkungen eintrete. Bauer: „Der Übergang von anorganischen Molekülen zu einem ersten lebenden Ensemble, wie er sich vor etwa 3,5 Milliarden Jahren in der Tiefe des Urmeeres abgespielt haben muss, hatte molekulare Kooperation und Kommunikation zur Voraussetzung. Beide Prinzipien blieben bis heute grundlegende Merkmale alles Lebendigen.“
