I will never claim to be smarter than I am, but this information made me question if our bodies already use DNA in this manner, to some extent.
Like having built in copier and scanner. When we create new memories and store them, maybe our built-in 'copier' prints the information on DNA for
When we work to recall memories, maybe our built-in scanner locates and deciphers the memory from the dna it's copied to?
If it isn't possible to work that way, atleast it's a fun idea for a sci-fi short story.
Maybe information from many past generations is stored in our dna and the most important advances are passed along to the next generation. This could
serve evolution in that it may explain how our genetics know to alter themselves from one generation to the next.
I wondered how a tree could know that it must produce seed pods that will fly like a helicopter in order to reach further areas, increasing the chance
for germination and continued existence. How does a tree know this? Maybe from a form of dna or cellular encoding?
I like the ideas that most everyone is discussing, about the possibility to deconstruct our mystery DNA to determine what we may find hidden.
I can't remember it right away and maybe it is just a fictional story I am recalling, but I seem to remember a tale that explained we already have
the answers to all of our questions. In the story, we must simply advance far enough to interpret it.
I am sure there are variations on this story, but as I type this I remember it a bit more... I think it was a short story done by the 90's television
show 'The Outer Limits' or a late 80's program called 'Monsters'.
I would be super curious to learn what any encoded information might be. I am sure it would be quite a stressful time, speculating on what mysteries
would be uncovered. I can't help but think it may be better if not everyone was informed of the discovered information.
Imagine if it did answer many mysteries, but we learned that we are pointless and there really is no purpose for life, or reality in general. Maybe we
would find that there was a plan originally, but something happened long ago and we have been stranded as a failed experiment.
Would the general public be deserving of that knowledge, or would it only serve to throw civilization into chaos?
I think I would want to know, if only for peace of mind about why I am.
Sorry for such a long post, just got going and couldn't turn it off... maybe it is in my dna...
