On Friday, August 31, 2012, I’ll be interviewing Biologist, Teacher and Spiritual Explorer, Janet Southall Connell about her book called, “Bits & Pieces….of a Biologist’s Journey Into Spirit” on Blog Talk Radio’s Hope42Day. Janet also happens to me a very special Aunt to one of my good friends as well. So what does this all have to do with Nobel Gas you may ask? Well, let me tell you (and the peanut gallery who knows me really well can keep their thoughts to themselves about the gas part of this…)
In one of the book’s passages Janet wrote, “We are like the Nobel Gases, complete and non-reactive” and “Nobel Gases are a group of elements found on the periodic table. They have all their electron shells complete, filled with eight electrons. Eight is the magic number. All atoms combine with other atoms so they can have eight electrons in their outer most shell. Now salt is made from sodium and chloride. Sodium has 1 electron in its outer most shell and chlorine has 7 electrons in its outer most shell. If sodium has 8 within and 1 outer and chlorine has 7 outer and they remain isolated and alone they are both very reactive…….they are so needy of each other to complete the magic number eight. But, Nobel Gases can stand alone (because) they already have the magic number of 8 electrons.”
Janet goes on to say that when “two Nobel Gases get together there is no reacting (because) they are already complete and that’s like two enlightened people.” According to Janet, Dr. Bruce Lipton is the “most amazing speaker” because “he explains spirituality in science terms.”
I’m no scientist, but I am a sci-fi geek and have always wondered why some people don’t see how science and spirituality can go together, fit like a glove. I remember years ago when I worked for a world-renowned electroanalytical chemist, he told me that the more he and his grad students and post docs researched and dove into their experiments, the more he saw God.
