Mitochondrial Eve (Gradualism, Under the Microscope)


Much of this post will contain scientific language and scientific facts


The System Matrix of Control as presented by Dr. John Colemen in his book “The Committee of 300”.  We use this chart to provide sort of a “living flow chart” of the institutionalization of the matrix. It is a visual and graphic aid that diagrams the structure, connections and interconnections of agencies, institutions and organizations that constitute this web of influence, control and power.

 In the field of human genetics, the name Mitochondrial Eve refers to the matrilineal most recent common ancestor, in a direct, unbroken, maternal line, of all currently living humans, who is estimated to have lived approximately 100,000–200,000 years ago. This is the most recent woman from whom all living humans today descend, in an unbroken line, on their mother’s side (not the father’s side) and through the mothers of those mothers, and so on, back until all lines converge on one person. Because all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) generally is passed from mother to offspring without recombination, all mtDNA in every living person is directly descended from hers by definition, differing only by the mutations that over generations have occurred in the germ cell mtDNA. (The above diagram provides an aid to visualize this) This is the scientific definition of “Mitochondrial Eve”.

Mitochondrial DNA, what is it?
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a interesting relic from our evolutionary past. Instead of just two copies per cell like our chromosomes, our cells have many more copies of mtDNA. And unlike the rest of our DNA, mtDNA is found outside of the nucleus. It also passes from mother to child; in fact, the father’s mtDNA is destroyed right after an egg is fertilized. This different DNA is found in little compartments in our cells called mitochondria. A mitochondrion’s job is to make energy for the cell, it is the “powerhouse” of the cell. tDNA is the DNA located in mitochondria, cellular organelles within eukaryotic cells that can convert chemical energy from food into a form that cells can use, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Mitochondrial DNA is only a small portion of the DNA in a eukaryotic cell; most of the DNA can be found in the cell nucleus and, in plants, in the chloroplast. In humans, mitochondrial DNA can be assessed as the smallest chromosome coding for 37 genes and containing approximately 16,600 base pairs. Human mitochondrial DNA was the first significant part of the human genome to be sequenced. (That is what the header image is above) In most species, including humans, mtDNA is inherited solely from the mother. In sexual reproduction, mtDNA are normally inherited exclusively from the mother; the mtDNA in mammalian sperm are usually destroyed by the egg cell after fertilization. Also, most MtDNA are present at the base of the sperm’s tail, which is used for propelling the sperm cells; sometimes the tail is lost during fertilization. In 1999 it was reported that paternal sperm mitochondria are marked with ubiquitin to select them for later destruction inside the embryo. Understanding fields of science such as biology and chemistry and dispel many of the educational, social, political and religious myths, incorrect and inaccurate suppositions that plague our epistemology (how do we know and what do we know) today. This disturbances in what you understand and what I understand leads to inequities and incongruence in our communications and collective understanding. We have previously identified that the Human Genome Project was one of the most important scientific accomplishments of the previous century. Genetically the entire human body has been mapped out. Genetic mapping or gene mapping is literally a road map, a blueprint, a schematic map of were something is located and how to get there. A genome map helps scientists navigate around the genome. Like road maps and other familiar maps, a genome map is a set of landmarks that tells people where they are, and helps them get where they want to go.

What is a genome?
A genome is the full set of instructions needed to make every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. Almost every one of your cells contains a complete copy of these instructions,written in the four-letter language of DNA (A, C, T, and G). The human genome contains 3 billion of these “letters” or bases. This means that if your genome were written out on sheets of paper and stacked as books, the tower of tomes would be almost as high as the Washington Monument! So, at this point, scientifically, we possess the ability and the knowledge to identify with in the human body where something comes, its origins and most likely where it is going, what it may evolve into. This is the enormous importance of the Human Genome Project. (We will refer to this, the Human Genome Project, in several soon to be published post and in our radio presentations. Understanding this will help you understand Protein Engineering and Protein Sequencing)

What does recombination mean?
Recombinant DNA (rDNA) is DNA in which one or more segments or genes have been inserted, either naturally or by laboratory manipulation, from a different molecule or from another part of the same molecule, resulting in a new genetic combination.

What are we telling you about mtDNA?
The DNA sequence of mtDNA has been determined from a large number of organisms and individuals (including some organisms that are extinct), and the comparison of those DNA sequences represents a mainstay of phylogenetics, phylo- meaning “race,” “tribe,” “kind” and genetics meaning the study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics. Phylogenetics, in that it allows biologists to make clear, explain the evolutionary relationships among species. It also permits an examination of the relatedness of populations, and so has become important in anthropology and field biology.

Just so we all are clear here, and you understand what we are presenting about mitochondrial DNA. tDNA has clearly allow science to identify the origin of the human race. When you follow of the biology and the chemistry, and remember the word chemistry has the prefix of chem or Khem (do we not referred to the origin of the black race to be Khemite? Is not chemistry literally the study of you, the study of Melanin), the Biology and the chemistry lead you to Africa. All human beings can trace their point of origin, genetically, through the science of mitochondrial DNA to Africa.

And lets inject more dots into this presentation. Lucy, (recall that was the name of the summer blockbuster film (2014), where she strangely enough evolve into pure melanin.) But this Lucy we are referring to, is the oldest documented skeleton known to man. Lucy or Australopithecus as she she known or called in the white academic/scholarly world (see how they codify language and words. “Austral” taken from the latin “austro” meaning Austro-Asiatic. And asiatic meaning relating to or deriving from Asia, they constantly take the African out of Africa) Lucy is the skeletal remains of a black woman was discovered in 1974 at Hadar in the Awash Valley of the Afar Triangle in Ethiopia. In paleoanthropology, usually only fossil fragments are found and only rarely are skulls or ribs uncovered intact; thus this discovery was extraordinary and provided an enormous amount of scientific evidence. Lucy is estimated to have lived 3.2 million years ago. In 2007, the fossil and associated Ethiopian artifacts toured the United States for six years, as an exhibition entitled Lucy’s Legacy: The Hidden Treasures of Ethiopia.

You trace the development of language through the science of linguistics; and you trace the history of man both anthropologically and his archaeology; you come to a very curious concert and congruency of information, that aligns itself with the science of mitochondrial DNA, its evolution and the genetic blue print of man to Africa. Which, for some of us is no great revelation. However, the critical question that need to be asked, as we have presented in our ongoing series, “Gradualism, Under the Microscope”; 1) why is this not taught in your classrooms; secondary, graduate and postgraduate.
2) Why is this something that you do not know. Why do you not know that there is a close correlation between all of the developments of man be they biological, linguistics, cultural, anthropological, archaeological, even epistemologically that all stem out of Africa. The map that is used here to provide a visual representation of the development or the spread mitochondrion DNA, is the same map that can be used for the spread of culture, of linguistics, of the development of man, the development of science as a whole, (and we are talking everything from astronomy to chemistry). We can even use this map to trace the development of pyramids. Everything has a point of origin. And it appears that Africa is the point of origin for everything.

So, was Dr Ben right, is heaven between the thighs of a Black woman…..
