#443: Toby Alexander

Toby Alexander is a self-proclaimed Indigo child; in fact, he is a “Type 1” Indigo child: “Type 1's are born with 6 [DNA] strands activated at birth and have a 48 strand template. We can activate 12 strands by the age of 33 and supposedly there are only 350 people with this blueprint on the planet right now.” No, he doesn’t understand DNA (a good primer can be found here), but he is still here to share his wisdom with us. Given the right meditation techniques (Alexander doesn’t need to apply them since he’s already an indigo child) you can activate your DNA; in fact, “[y]ou will go from using 10% of your brain to becoming a multi-dimensional being with psychic, telepathic, and manifestation abilities beyond anything you've ever dreamed of. Plus, you will stop the aging process and actually start to rejuvenate to look and feel YOUNGER. This is the Original Divine Blueprint, what man USED to be. It has been written that Jesus had 12 strands of DNA activated.” (hat tip: this one).

The full “explanation” is that each chromosome has 10 more additional strands of DNA in the realm of ether, just waiting to be “activated”. Then, of course, there is some quantum, and then this:

“The portions of the DNA chain that science has presently identified as the ‘Double Helix’, represent only the SURFACE portions of the chemical, elemental, and electrical components of the active DNA strands. Science has yet to identify the MULTIDIMENSIONAL spectra of DNA manifestation, and has yet to realize that within the structures of detectable DNA, there are levels of structure and function that direct the operations of the entire genetic blueprint, which are not currently detectable by the contemporary scientific method.”

Some may wonder how, since it’s not detectable, Alexander knows, but I suppose you shouldn’t ask. (He may have borrowed something from Australian loon Vienna Stibal’s Theta healing, or from the site by a German chiropractor discussed here). Alexander's views are discussed in detail here. I suppose if you’re not satisfied with the results after following Alexander’s DNA activation, you can always try Ted Edwards’s DNA reprogramming based on The Secret and the advice of Russian crank Pjotr Garjajev who thinks that junk DNA is responsible for crop circles.

Diagnosis: Alexander abides perhaps as far as you can come from reality by riding the woo. He’s utterly unhinged but probably harmless.


  1. ah...indigo child. There's a group out there who believe that children with ADD/ADHD, autism and other learning disorders are actually indigo children. They don't believe they have learning disabilities.They think they have super telepathic powers that have not been recognized by mainstream science. Some are trying to officially have these children designated as this. Once had a conversation with these people. All I got was some classic rambling about moon, sunshine and spirits.

  2. If he can control his DNA, why is his hairline receding?

  3. Actually he is a genius who has learnt to con numerous loons around the world and make money doing practically nothing and living the fantasy life in Cancun.. There is one sucker born in this world every minute and Toby makes money out of every one of them..

  4. Expanding Man's abilities and reaching higher states of consciousness?
    It sounds like Scientology, the Godfather of pseudo-religious, self-improvement quackery.
