Genetic Memory vs Reincarnation... Thoughts?

Thursday, 2 January 2014

Scientists have found that memories may be passed down through generations in our DNA

New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has
shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited
biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the
tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about
traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of
cherry blossom – to subsequent generations.

According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of
psychiatry at Emory University, said: ”From a translational perspective,
our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent,
before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and
function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.

“Such a phenomenon may contribute to the etiology and potential
intergenerational transmission of risk for neuropsychiatric disorders
such as phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.”

This suggests that experiences are somehow transferred from the brain
into the genome, allowing them to be passed on to later generations.

The researchers now hope to carry out further work to understand how the
information comes to be stored on the DNA in the first place.

They also want to explore whether similar effects can be seen in the genes of humans.

Professor Marcus Pembrey, a paediatric geneticist at University College
London, said the work provided “compelling evidence” for the biological
transmission of memory.

He added: “It addresses constitutional fearfulness that is highly
relevant to phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders, plus
the controversial subject of transmission of the ‘memory’ of ancestral
experience down the generations.

“It is high time public health researchers took human transgenerational responses seriously.

“I suspect we will not understand the rise in neuropsychiatric disorders
or obesity, diabetes and metabolic disruptions generally without taking
a multigenerational approach.”

Professor Wolf Reik, head of epigenetics at the Babraham Institute in
Cambridge, said, however, further work was needed before such results
could be applied to humans.

He said: “These types of results are encouraging as they suggest that
transgenerational inheritance exists and is mediated by epigenetics, but
more careful mechanistic study of animal models is needed before
extrapolating such findings to humans.”

May our DNA Carrying also spiritual and cosmic memories passed down in genes from our ancestors ?

That would explain a few things...

I'm a fan of the concept that things are passed along through quantum mechanics, which allows us to remember past lives. My entire awareness of otherkin is based on this. How else could you remember being a faerie? Or a dragon? or a mermaid? etc.
I do think we have things that are passed along genetically, through our ancestors, but I also think they are encouraged by memory. Whether we are aware of that memory or not.

We are quite a package of mystery and wonder, I do believe things are passed along genetically and I am not sure how the soul will fit into the quantum mechanics. I also believe the soul has it's place in our travels from one life unto the next and assits us in our memories for each life time as we discover who we are.

I have odd memories. I remember being my mothers and grandmothers body but not mind. I can move sometimes and feel that that is how my mother moves and I can fake a laugh and feel my grandmother, it bothers me as my being is very different from theirs. I am often scared I am turning into my mother.

I remember having wings and moving things with my is weird that I do not have wings now, flight is so natural to me, yet I have to walk every where is is still odd after being in this body nearly 45 years. I took flying lessons once trying to recapture it but it wasn't the same.

I also remember being insane as my mind was ripped from something so cold it burned. I can still hear the ones that are kin yet are mad chattering in the darkness. I was once like them.
