Alright well a few times in chat there has been talk of the Caduceus and the helix DNA structure. Well, I have thought about it like this. The Caduceus is often depicted as being carried by the Greek god Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Well considering DNA is filled to the brim with histories and a bit of research could lead you to cures and other such knowledge would it not be an acceptable interpretation that a divine or spiritual being passed this knowledge on to man in some form of another to be interpreted later on. It is now seen as a sign of medicine. Which isn't all too crazy either considering the fact that in our genetics is the cure to every disease we have encountered in some form or another. Also, it is intertwined by two snakes. Snakes in many religions are holders and givers of great knowledge. I'll cite a biblical example of when Satan took on the from of a snake and helped Eve achieve awareness of her body and its nakedness. Another sign that it points to a divine origin is that is depicted as being topped by a set of angelic wings. This often represents some form of divinity or another. I see in all this a startling proof of how knowledgeable entities of a higher vibrational existence were even when we were still without electricity.
Now onto the actual correlation between magic and genetics. Obviously, (or obvious to me at least) some entity or another passed on said information to the Greeks and they in turn without the ability to inspect DNA at the time took it as a symbol of information transference. Well this DNA is a symbol of informational transference but not from only being to being, but through time. So here is the connection. Many religions and practices call upon ancestry when performing magic. Well if DNA has been taking information forward in time could it not also be connecting us spiritually with all who came before us and therefore allowing us to call upon them?
