Astrology is founded on the belief that life on Earth somehow parallels the workings of the cosmos. In 2017 the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine was awarded to three scientists who revealed the molecular mechanism by which our biological clocks, which regulate our circadian rhythms, function.
Here is an excerpt from the Press Release of the Nobel Prize Committee (italics and bold are mine):
“Life on Earth is adapted to the rotation of our planet. For many years we have known that living organisms, including humans, have an internal, biological clock that helps them anticipate and adapt to the regular rhythm of the day. …
Their discoveries explain how plants, animals and humans adapt their biological rhythm so that it is synchronized with the Earth’s revolutions.
Using fruit flies as a model organism, this year’s Nobel laureates isolated a gene that controls the normal daily biological rhythm. They showed that this gene encodes a protein that accumulates in the cell during the night, and is then degraded during the day. Subsequently, they identified additional protein components of this machinery, exposing the mechanism governing the self-sustaining clockwork inside the cell. We now recognize that biological clocks function by the same principles in cells of other multicellular organisms, including humans.
With exquisite precision, our inner clock adapts our physiology to the dramatically different phases of the day.”
Essentially what these scientists have done is demonstrate that humans, and other forms of life on this planet, have internalized the pattern of the Earth’s rotation into a molecular mechanism that regulates their essential bodily functions. In a sense we all have a model of the Earth rotating on its axis and its relationship to the Sun built into our physiology. As above, so below.
