How The Microbiome Destroyed the Ego, Vaccine Policy, and Patriarchy

Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder

The relatively recent discovery of the microbiome is not only completely redefining what it means to be human, to have a body, to live on this earth, but is overturning belief systems and institutions that have enjoyed global penetrance for centuries.

A paradigm shift has occurred, so immense in implication, that the entire frame of reference for our species’ self-definition, as well as how we relate fundamentally to concepts like “germs,” have been transformed beyond recognition. This shift is underway and yet, despite popular interest in our gut ecology, the true implications remain unacknowledged.

It started with the discovery of the microbiome, a deceptively diminutive term, referring to an unfathomably complex array of microscopic microorganisms together weighing only 3-4 lbs. in the average human, represents a Copernican revolution when it comes to forming the new center, genetically and epigenetically, of what it means in biological terms to be human.

Considering the sheer density of genetic information contained within these commensals, as well as their immense contribution towards sustaining basic functions like digestion, immunity, and brain function, the “microbiome” could just as well be relabeled the “macrobiome”; that is, if we are focusing on the size of its importance rather than physical dimensionality.

For instance, if you take away the trillions of viruses, bacteria and fungi that coexist with our human cells (the so-called holobiont), only 1% of the genetic material that keeps us ticking, and has for hundreds of millions of years, remains. One percent isn’t that much for the ego to work with, especially considering it now has to thank what were formerly believed to be mostly “infectious agents” for the fact that it exists. Even more perplexing, the remaining 1% of our contributed DNA to the collective gene pool of the holobiont is at least 8% retroviral (yes, the same category as HIV) in origin!

Us Against Them?

Once the object of modern medicine’s fundamental responsibility – the human body – is redefined and/or perceived with greater veracity, and “germs” become less other and more self, a challenge for germ theory which seeks to differentiate between the “good” germs we are versus the “bad” ones out there that we must fight with antibiotics and vaccines.

As many readers are already poignantly aware, today’s political climate and agenda is unilaterally pro-vaccination on both sides of the aisle (conveniently funded by the same industry lobbyists), with a tidal wave of bills across the U.S. set to eliminate exemptions against mandatory vaccination. The rationale, of course, is that deadly germs can only be prevented from killing the presumably germ-free host through injecting dead, weakened or genetically modified germ components to “prevent” theoretical future exposures and infection. This concept is of course intellectually infantile, and if you do some investigating you’ll find it was never quite grounded in compelling evidence or science.

But the intellectual implications of the microbiome go even deeper than undermining germ theory, vaccine policy, and the culture of medical monotheism that upholds these constructs…

Maternal Origins of Health and Ultimately our Species Identity

Deep within the substratum of humanity’s largely unquestioned assumptions of what it means to be human, the microbiome has also fundamentally displaced a latent patriarchal prejudice concerning the relative importance and contribution of the man and woman towards the health and ultimately the continuation of our species.

It has been known for some time that only women pass down mitochondrial DNA, already tipping the scales in favor of her dominant position in contributing genetic information (the seat of our humanity or species identity, no?) to offspring. The microbiome, however, changes everything in favor of amplifying this asymmetry of hereditary influence. Since we are all designed to gestate in the womb and come through the birth canal, and since the neonate’s microbiome is therein derived and established thereof, it follows that most of our genetic information as holobionts is maternal in origin. Even when the original colonization eventually changes and is displaced through environmentally-acquired microbial strains as the infant, child, adolescent, and then adult, develops, the original terrain and subsequent trajectory of changes was established through the mother (unless of course we were C-sectioned into the world).

Put in simpler terms: if 99% of what it means to be human is microbiome-based, and if the mother contributes most, if not all, of the original starting material, or at least the baseline and trajectory of future changes in the inner terrain, then her contribution becomes vastly more important than that of the father.

Moreover, the conditions surrounding gestation (important because of maternal-to-fetal microbiome trafficking in utero), her general health, and the way in which she gives birth (home, birth center, or hospital) now take on vastly greater importance than previously imagined. In other words, being born in a hospital via C-section and vaccination, will produce, genetically and epigenetically, a human that is so different – qualitatively – from one born at home, naturally, that they could almost be classified as different species, despite sharing nearly identical eukaryotic DNA (remember, only 1% of the holobiont’s total).

The Scientific Inevitability of Birth Feminism

Given this perspective, obstetric interventions are the archetypal expression of a male-dominated paradigm that seeks to manage a woman’s birth experience with largely unacknowledged consequences for the health of our species. Protecting health and preventing disease has now been traced back to the origins of the microbiome, best expressed through natural birth in the home, which has been estimated to be as much as 1,000 times safer than a hospital birth despite propaganda to the contrary.

Birth

In light of the new, microbiome-based view, the male role in protecting the health of women and children will be irrevocably downgraded in importance, not just professionally and medically, but biologically.  First, it is interesting to look at the ancient roots of the biology-based psychospiritual disparities that exist between men and women, and which still influence today’s practice of medicine.

It would appear that men have from the beginning of time envied the creative role of women in conception, pregnancy, birth and caretaking. Erich Fromm also described the pyschospiritual implications for men of this biologically-based existential disparity in terms of the phenomena of womb-envy, exemplified by the biblical passage where God takes a rib from Adam to “create” Eve – an obvious reversal of the natural order of things, reflecting the inherent impotence men feel knowing their creative potency is secondary importance. It has been said, rightly, that the most powerful thing in the universe is to create life (is this not why we attribute this to “God”), and the second most powerful thing to take it. It is no coincidence that history, since it’s inception as recorded, is largely a documentation of the history of wars, of men “creating meaning” by killing men, and establishing symbol systems intended to capture by proxy the creative power latent within every woman’s body and experience.  And so, 10,000 years later, the world ruled by monotheistic, male-principled religious and cultural systems, both in secular and religious form, it seems that the facts of our biology are now intervening to shake up these largely subconscious belief systems in favor of an ancient truth: women are superior to men, fundamentally. (Though it is not a type of superiority to be used against the “weaker sex”: men, rather but to denote a higher responsibility, and perhaps greater need to be supported by men to get the job done, together, as inscribed in the natural order of things and its inherent design.)

The birth process, also, has been described as the closest thing to death without dying (it is ironic that anesthesiology, which could also be described in the same way, makes obstetrical interventions like C-section and epidural possible, at the same moment that it negates the spiritual experience of natural birth/women’s empowerment we are describing), offering women a window into the ‘in between’ and a direct experience of Source that men, less likely to experience it naturally would later emulate and access through the various technologies of shamanism.

Clearly, protecting the microbiome is of utmost importance if we are making the health of our future generations a priority. Indeed, ensuring the health of our offspring is perhaps the most fundamental evolutionary imperative we have.  How do we accomplish this? What is the microbiome but ultimately a selective array of commensal microorganisms that ultimately originated from the environment: in the air we breath, the soil we interact with, and the water and food, of course, we ingest. This means we can’t simply live in a hermetically sealed bubble of shopping for organic, non-GMO certified foods at Whole Foods, while the entire planet continues to go to post-industrial hell in a hand basket.  Our responsibility becomes distributed across everything in the world, and every impactful choice then becomes relevant to the fundamental issue and imperative at hand. With the microbial biodiversity in Big Ag, GM-based agricultural zones fire-bombed with biocides, by the very same corporations that either own or distribute the “organic brands” we all love to think will save our bodies, if not the planet, we need to step deeper into our activism by stepping out of the diversions and palliative measures that don’t result in lasting change.

When we work with the natural world, when we honor and acknowledge what is unknown about the complex web that we all share, we will bring back a vital health that now seems so far out of reach. When we engage technologies positioned in the war against germs and organisms, however, we are doomed to fail and to cripple not only our species but our home.

  1. As a function of conceptual design, a species constructed where either sex was “Superior” to the other would never work. It would be out of balance from the get-go and have a very low probability of successful evolution. It is unlikely the creator of the universe would create with such disregard to potential consequences such as these.

    The “Patriarchy” was designed by the luciferians, as are all human social structures to date, including modern feminism. I would not look at human history and draw many conclusions about our true nature based on our recent past. I believe the author would be wise to rethink some of his premises.

  2. The dark forces who create Humanoid-Reptilians for war and slave labor, were made inferior to humans and cannot create life. Their hatred of females and Mother-God continues to encourage the wounded male who has become (not all of course) agents of war and rape. The violent energies of rape are left into the body of the woman and transferred to generation after generation, forcing the violent-rapist-wounded-male to re-incarnate into the body of the energies he left behind, the energies of violence and anger. Rape, therefore, has been used by the war-machine for centuries to lower the consciousness and energies of enemies, that in future lives is not energy, but family.

    What men don’t realize is that you cannot use the sacred Goddess energies of creation (within both females and males) for violence – abuse, (murder) war and rape – without paying a price. The price of today’s single type-of-gene have been paying for centuries is the loss of the ‘Y’ chromosomes (color-Light). What was once 1500 ‘Y’ chromosomes is less than 50 ‘Y’ chromosomes.

    Women on the other hand are made of two different types of genes and have hundreds of ‘X’ chromosomes to create with.

    The choice is clear – testosterone (character-test of one bone). Unfortunately, most (but not all) males worship their physical strength and sexuality above all else and continue to encourage each other to do what they can get away with. (Thank Goddess this is not true of all men, for there are many who responsibly and balanced -male and female energies within them.) Left side is female and right side is male (with cross-over energies in the brain) of both females and males.

    As for the Bible – Rewritten and rewritten to sell their protection rackets, adam means ‘atom’ and rib represents the rib that supports the heart. Women were not created from a man’s rib. We were being told to support and protect our individual heart flames (left side Mother-Goddess energies.) I know our Sacred Heart Flames that connect us to Father-Mother-God/dess, exist because I have seen my own. Each of us were created for balance – both males and female energies within each of us, governed by our Heart Flames, that connect us with our Higher I AM Selves.

  3. For us non-microbiologists, it would have been nice if the author had bothered to tell us what a microbiome is.

  4. Great comment, Carla Johnston! Thank you for a superb article, Edward Morgan!
    Sajer Ji is an incredible powerful men and wisdom-teacher. Clear as crystal, a sword of truth.
    My eyes are always happy to see his picture next to his words. All of his descriptions and views
    are clear to me and in sync with my own experiences, explorations and views on what makes our
    lives thrive in good health with good food, medicine of nature, the nurturing love of lady Gaia.

    Once, in a classroom with a German nutritionist, this teacher said “When we fight bacteria and
    viruses, we fight life itself and it’s the reason why they come back with a vengeance. We’ve got to
    learn to appreciate them as inherent natural parts of our physical existence and expressions of form”

    These words, from an experienced nutritionist who worked many years in hospitals, with patients in serious conditions, woke me up with a start and I felt like “Yes, it’s common sense speaking here”.

    To me, our expansion of consciousness works in sync with our conscious connection to the smallest elements that make up life. And it’s how it longs to be and wishes to be, as I perceive it.
    In Holland we’ve got a saying that goes: “He who doesn’t honour the small, isn’t worth the large.”
    It’s what keeps us with our feet on the ground. In balance, on the tight rope of present day living.
    And so it is.

    Peace be with you and with planet Earth. Blessed be, Marian Baghor.

  5. Incredible read… what great expansion in consciousness is occurring as WE live aligned to our creation template and irreducible connection to ALL-That-Is… we must first see the lie to even know to seek truth outside of the mind-control and programming that has left this world in darkness and separation…
