Now the understanding that we inherit characteristics like hair texture, eye color and various other tastes from our family is something quite accepted and talked about. But some recent studies have shown that your DNA structure might be even more significant than you think. The report clarifies that things like memory of a fear are not only retained in your DNA but also passed from one generation to the another. So if you fear spider or heights, it might be an impression of the memory encoded in your DNA. And this transfer might be as long as who knows ? A 1000 years old ! Have a look at this mind boggling concept of neuroscience
The idea that something as subtle as behavioural patterns are inherited with the DNA has long been discussed in neuroscience. That is to say, we act a lot like our parents/ grandparents when it comes to eating habits, life choices, calibur in science, mathematics and something as awesome as art. But the way science has understood the presence of memory codes in our DNA, only proves that heredity is not just a function of reproduction. Memories of many many generations can be easily stored in our DNA’s and also clearly impacts the way we percieve things. Also the DNA structure is impacted by the kind of environment in which our ancestors have lived for ages. Isn’t it amazing to realize, how deep this is ??
Humanity evolves as a result of imprints left in our blood carried on from our ancestral experiences. This also means that nothing ever really dies and the biological information transfer makes sure that everything that ever makes it to Earth is retained through out ages ! So that means your love for waterfalls, preference for a certain kind of smell or something as simple as your liking for a particular kind of music might as well be a genetic memory, something that your great grandfather? grandmother practiced in their time.
