Human Consciousness: A Theoretical Prospective on Repetitive DNA Base Pairs Relation to Psychological Behavior

Alamanda Madhan Kumar, Krishna Revathy, Acharya Bal Krishna, Gowdara Paran Gowda

Abstract


In this paper an attempt has been made to bridge the gap between the repetitive Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) base pair sequences and psychological human behavior. Assuming the brain as a perfect fluid, the DNA coefficient between the biological and non-biological forms of the brain is calculated. These calculations are based on the Friedman density equations that describe the expansion or contraction of the universe in homogeneous and isotropic way in physical cosmology (only time independent equation is considered). We have tested this DNA coefficient with a sample size of eighty persons with belief constructs on consciousness behavior. The Pearson’s coefficient thus obtained is then compared with DNA coefficient. A logical justification is made for the comparison of these two values. The coefficient values are found to tally but with an error margin of thirteen percent. The major result of this research study is in finding a relation between the experimental DNA values with that of psychology of consciousness behavior in terms of coefficient values.
