Is the world inherently symbolic? Narby: This is the observation that led me to investigate the cosmic serpent. I found the symbol in shamanism all over the world. My hypothesis is that it is connected to the double helix of DNA inside virtually all living beings. And DNA itself is a symbolic Saussurean code. So, yes, in at least one important way, the living world is inherently symbolic.
We are made of living language. What is this intelligence?

Narby: Intelligence comes from the Latin inter-legere, to choose between. There seems to be a capacity to make choices operating inside each cell in our body, down to the level of individual proteins and enzymes.

A few are willing to consider that perhaps they might learn something by talking with shamans. Narby argues that bringing shamanism and science together could lead to a deeper understanding of such cutting-edge issues as bio-ethics, medicine, genetic engineering, and the urgent need to protect not only biodiversity in the Amazon rain forest, but the complex knowledge of shamans -- the native doctors and scientists -- in ecosystems around the world. For many years, scientists have assumed that there is no direction in evolution, that life itself evolved by chance and that changes are random.
But the more scientists understand about DNA, the key to evolution, the harder it is getting for them to believe that there is no intelligence in nature's design. Narby first noticed this phenomenon among the Ashaninca Indians in Peru. When he interviewed Ashaninca doctors and shamans about how they learned their plant remedies, they told him stories of seeing serpents in their visions and communicating with these animate essences in nature.
