As per the research findings of the modern sciences, the current civilized and developed state of man is a result of a long series of evolutionary changes. This has taken about 400 to 500 thousand years for the ascent of human race to the present state and women have made significant contributions in civilizing the primeval humans. This important role played by women is getting clearer and better established by the discoveries in the field of human genomics.
It is a well-known scientific fact that offsprings acquire good and bad qualities of their ancestors through the chromosomes. The language of genes written in the chromosomes of the cells of the offspring determines his/her form, color, body structure and other attributes and characteristics. The cells in human body have 46 chromosomes. Among these, 23 chromosomes come from the mother and the other 23 come from the father.
On one side these chromosomes display the specific qualities and attributes of the offspring, and on the other side they also determine whether or not the offspring would be afflicted by any of the 2000 diseases that have been considered as genetic. These include several kinds of cancers and other fatal ailments. The creator of this world has written specific messages in the chemical language of chromosomes. About 32.5 million letters of these genetic codes have been read and the human genome (compendium of genes) has been made available on the Internet. However, only about 40 thousand genes of these have been identified till date.
It is still not known what kinds of roles most of these genes play in the human body. Till date about 95 percent of the genome is uncharacterized and because of the redundancy of its sequence across the human population, many researchers consider that they are not of any significant use in Nature’s molecular machinery. But thinkers and scientists who look at the aspects of human consciousness with equanimity do not agree with this view. The wise men who have faith in synergy of science and spirituality believe that extrasensory capabilities and the secrets of spiritual powers may be hidden within these 95 percent unknown DNAs (Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid).
It is known that DNA is that super chemical which forms a letter of the genomic language by picking up any three of the four nucleotides – Adenine (A), Thiamine (T), Guanine (G), and Cytosine (C). Definite sequences of these letters constitute a word in the form of 20 amino acids. A gene is that sentence which translates into some form of protein or the other. For this reason after human genomics, research is now being carried out on human proteomics in which Indian scientists are also participating. Among the 23 pairs of chromosomes in human body, X- and Y-chromosomes are included which determine sex. If the foetus receives one X and one Y chromosome, it takes the form and shape of a boy and if both the chromosomes are X then the foetus takes the form of a girl. Woman always has X-X chromosomes so she contributes X chromosomes only and Y chromosome exists in man’s body only.
So man plays a decisive role in determining whether the offspring would be a boy or a girl. It has now been established by scientific research that the diversified quality of creativity that exists in human race has its origin in woman. According to this, the source of creativity in human beings is the X chromosome, which is the mother’s contribution. How did it happen that boundless human capabilities of art and science got tied up in the X chromosome?
This might have something to do with the natural power of creation gifted to the women and the inference, drawn by evolutionary statisticians that most of the bright and talented men and women choose only compatible counterparts so the genetic recombination in the mating process would have led to compounded accumulation of these qualities within the X chromosome. In fact, all men and women have X chromosomes. Women have two and men have one X chromosome, meaning that within each person infinite capabilities of creativity exist, but these blossom up only when they are nurtured with good education, virtuous sanskara (deep mental impressions) and conducive environment.
