"I have been here all the time," said he, "but you have just made me visible." Aslan, from Prince Caspian and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis

In molecular biology, transformation is the genetic alteration of a cell by adding naked DNA. Transformation occurs most commonly in bacteria. Transformation can make a good cell really bad, or a bad cell really good. Pneaumonia, multiple sclerosis, antibiotics and world wide immunization programmes all start with cell transformation. So now you know:)

If you think about it, transformation is not just being a bit different, it's a complete change. You start as one thing and become completely, radically different. Not only that but this alteration has an enormous impact of the world around you.

We just got back from watching Prince Caspian and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. In the movie, Lucy and Edmund (who we first meet in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) are spending a dreary holiday with their cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb, who is a rather dour and mean spirited little boy. They are unexpectedly drawn into the fabled land of Narnia when a painting of a ship on the wall of Lucy's room comes to life, and the three children fall into the ocean to be rescued by a fantastic ship called the Dawn Treader.

All I could think was - how is Eustace going to survive Narnia? Because in Narnia, there is no room for a mean spirit or darkness of any kind. In Narnia, you will either be completely transformed or you will inevitably die.

To cut a long story short, Eustace after a catalogue of bad decisions, becomes a dragon. It is only as a dragon that he becomes aware of how bad his previous behaviour was, and then starts to use his strength to help make amends. When Eustace eventually returns home, he is a completely different boy.

Those who know the series of novels starting with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, will know that CS Lewis was writing about Heaven, about Hell, about Jesus, about the decisions we make and where they take us. He was writing about how our journey through this world will completely transform us one way or another.

What I love about Eustace's story is that he, like us, was anything but perfect or heroic, but he allowed himself to be transformed. He tasted Heaven, he met Jesus and he was transformed.

Transformation is not just being a bit different, it's a complete change. You start as one thing and become completely, radically different.
