Overview

The cited study uses two fantasy baseball teams to explain human potential for postmortem evolution and genetic immortality, while examining the mind-body problem.

Balls of Fire explains the following discoveries that cast a new light on human history, evolution, consciousness, and the microbial DNA in our bodies.

  • Our cultural behavior over the last 12,000 years maps an ancient viral gene expression network for evolution that still functions in our cells

  • Christianity’s core themes, deities, and Mass mirror ancient pharaonic Egypt’s ‘pagan’ themes, deities, and rituals that describe this ancient gene network

  • Other cultures (early China, the Navajo, the Tarahumara) and creative artists (Poe, Artaud, Blake) understood this evolutionary message

  • Carl Jung’s archetypes of the collective unconscious mirror the dynamics of this ancient gene network.

  • Reputable alchemists (Isaac Newton, Dr. Michael Maier) were exploring the activities of viruses (crystals).

The science reviewed in Balls of Fire builds on The Isis Thesis (2004) and 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (2005-2013). The Isis Thesis is a semiotic study of ancient Egyptian literature, artwork, ritual, and architecture, showing that ancient Egyptian deities are signs for human and microbial DNA. The ancient texts map a gene expression pathway for human evolution that has been secreted by the elite in many cultures. Balls of Fire explains how baseball originated in ancient Egypt to describe this genetic pathway. In addition, other key historical behaviors (farming, fermentation, milk production, myth, Christianity, alchemy, literature, art, capitalism, genetic engineering, machine fascination) model the same viral gene expression network over time for human evolution.

Balls of Fire: A Science of Life and Death won 1st Place in the category “Body, Mind, Spirit” for Reader Views Literary Awards (2015-2016). The study was also a Finalist in the 18th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards in the Nonfiction Adult category of “Body, Mind, Spirit.”

Using a baseball model of two teams, Balls of Fire presents the scientific argument for and against the Isis Thesis through a fantasy-draft of dead and living scientists, philosophers, writers and other creative artists. This book is organized into five sections: Spring Training, Baseball Diamonds, Pregame, Fly-Ball Ferris Wheel, and Opening Day. Balls of Fire exposes the hidden survival message in baseball, culture, alchemy, literary texts, Christianity, world visions, our sciences, and history itself. Welcome to the Game of the Centuries.

In 2006, King presented The Isis Thesis on the microbiological meaning of Ancient Egyptian texts, artwork, ritual, and architecture at the Second International Congress for Young Egyptologists in Lisbon, Portugal. For more information, see www.isisthesis.com

As a college instructor for 20 years, she designed and facilitated over 16 different college courses, including Mythology, Creative Writing, literature courses, and Seminars on West Africa. Her independent research and writing includes The Isis Thesis, a study decoding 870 ancient Egyptian Signs (2004), The Road from Orion (2004), a novel explaining the science in the thesis, continuing research on the thesis in 12 peer-reviewed articles (2005-2013) published in international journals, and Balls of Fire, a Science of Life and Death (2015), summarizing and expanding research on the thesis. King presented The Isis Thesis at The Third International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities at the University of Cambridge, UK on August 3, 2005. She also presented her research to an Egyptology audience on October 25, 2006, at the Second International Congress for Young Egyptologists in Lisbon, Portugal, organized by the Universidade de Lisboa.
