"It is possible to imagine that the DNA carries the soul DNA just as it carries the DNA for physical appearances and characteristics."

Built upon the author's hypothesis that the human soul is programmed into one's DNA, much like physical characteristics, this work delves into the source and existence of what he terms "the living soul." Ansara references scholars, philosophers, and other thinkers to make his argument. He states, "This hypothesis was created from Egyptian belief systems regarding the soul with the premise that each person has, metaphorically, a box of knowledge, tools, and traits to use along the road of life from the moment of conception until death." The author approaches his theory in a scientific hypothesis he calls the "Ansara Genetic Consciousness Hypothesis," in which he addresses the soul as an energy all humans possess. In ten chapters, the author discusses such concepts as religious, spiritual, and scientific definitions of the soul, the biology and DNA of the soul, and the ancient Egyptian concept of the soul. He concludes with a bibliography of the various works used to build this hypothesis.

This work is a fascinating study of the origin and purpose of the human soul. Ansara lays out his theory in an easy-to-follow hypothesis that addresses the possibility of the soul's DNA, which he feels may be found in what is called "junk DNA," or the DNA of humans that doesn't address physical characteristics. It is an intriguing look at the human capacity to connect with a creator or energy source. One of the most interesting chapters consists of questions and answers addressed to both Ansara and Colleen Haney, who assisted Ansara with this book, as they sometimes reach different conclusions to the same questions. It is a thought-provoking read that explores many of humanity's age-old questions concerning one's purpose in life and the relationship between man and God. Those who enjoy philosophy and theology will find this a mesmerizing read.
