Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief:


We Are Made in the Image of the Universe
To me, God represents “All That Is,” the whole environment comprising the Universe. The cell engages in behavior when its brain, the membrane, responds to environmental signals. In fact, every functional protein in our body is made as a complementary “image” of an environmental signal. If a protein did not have a complementary signal to couple with, it would not function. This means, that every protein in our bodies is a physical/electromagnetic complement to something in the environment. Because we are machines made out of protein, by definition we are made in the image of the environment, that environment being the Universe, or to many, God.

Because humans evolved as complements of their surrounding environment, if we change the environment too much, we will no longer be complementary to it”
