In The Master (Mistress) Of Speech, Shannon Dorey reveals that alien beings called Nummo created humans through genetic engineering. Dorey's information is based on a detailed analysis of the Dogon religion that was recorded by Marcel Griaule in 1946 in Conversations With Ogotemmêli.
Dorey believes that because the Dogon religion was first presented in 1946, it is not surprising that Griaule and other anthropologists of the time missed the symbolism in the mythology related to DNA. Scientists didn't even start to think about DNA until the early 1950s when British scientists like Rosalind Franklin began to do research into this area. Franklin produced the first photo of DNA that became the basis for the eventual discovery of DNA by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953.
The first introduction of DNA in the Dogon religion was with the mention of the fibrous skirt. In the religion DNA was identified with a fibrous skirt because of the visual representation of DNA as being like the fibres of a skirt. The fibres were the "essence of the Nummo". They represented the DNA of the Nummo.
The Dogon elder Ogotemmêli made reference to the fact the Nummo made "two strands" from the fibres of "plants already created in the heavenly region". The Earth was "naked and speechless" and the Nummo wanted to put an end to this disorder. They made one strand for the front and one for the back. Ogotemmêli explained the purpose of the skirt, however, wasn't just for modesty but for the ordering of the universe. He made reference to the "helicoids sign" and "the fibres" that "fell in coils".
Dorey displays this actual DNA strand to show that its visual representation is like the description by Ogotemmêli of the two strands falling in coils.

This picture shows the hydrogen bonds visually looking like broken lines between the double-stranded helix. Ogotemmêli described the hydrogen bonds as a "helicoids sign in the form of an undulating broken line".
The Nummo changed the Earth animals who were "naked and speechless" by using the "fibres" or the DNA from the Nummo's world. The lack of intelligence on the Earth was identified as "disorder" that the Nummo wanted to end. By combining their DNA with the Earth animals they ordered the universe. Ogotemmêli made reference to the fact that masked men still wore these "tendrils" hanging down to their feet. These "tendrils" or "fibres" were an important aspect of the mythology.
Dorey believes the fibrous skirt is used to represent DNA because of its dual meaning. Once the Earth animals were genetically engineered to become intelligent they were no longer naked and uncivilized like animals. Instead they become civilized and wore a fibrous skirt. In other words through the Nummo's DNA the animals became intelligent.
Ogotemmêli referred to the Earth as being "naked and speechless" which is how animals are defined. So by connecting with the Nummo, the animals became clothed and they learned to speak.
Dorey explains that the first important symbol found in Ogotemmêli's conversation with Griaule is the symbol of the "Word" itself. The "Word" is used as a metaphor for the DNA of the biologically engineered humans. This is because speech is synonymous with intelligence and the only way the Earth animals were able to speak was when their DNA was combined with the Nummo's DNA. The "Word" was a key symbol and was used throughout to describe the three different versions of the biologically engineered humans.
Dorey relates the Dogon use of the "Word" as a symbol of DNA to the passage found in the biblical book of John. It is written, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. John 1:1 ... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." John 1:14
In this passage from the book of John it says the "Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." In Dogon mythology the "Word" was symbolic of DNA. In this passage the "Word" or the DNA became flesh. In Dogon mythology it was the DNA of the Master (Mistress) of Speech" that was supposed to provide hope for humanity and correct the mistakes made from the first experiment.
