Dreams That Changed Human History Forever

Double Helix


DNA is the entire makeup of how human beings are put together. It runs through all of us, and the discovery of its structure is one of the greatest discoveries in the history of science. It’s amazing to think that one of the greatest discoveries in the world, and one that revolutionized science, could have come from a dream. But it did!

Dr. James Watson had a dream where he envisaged two snakes intertwined with heads at opposite ends. Most people would simply forget this dream, or dismiss it as nothing. But, Watson’s mind was such that he used this idea to formulate his consideration of a double helix.
