Something that is rather interesting about all this is that DNA can actually be used to store memory, files, etc. As anyone who has taken biology
knows that all cells contain nuclei (with the exception of red
), which is where much of a cell's DNA is stored (although mitochondria
also contains its own DNA). We know today that genes within our DNA can have an influence on what diseases we are more susceptible to, how we look,
how we emotionally respond to various situations, etc. Cellular memory could actually be part of the reason why a lot of children "repeat" history and
have similar experiences to their parents at times even without necessarily knowing of their parents' pasts (or heck even their grandparents).
As an example if a woman dated an abusive boyfriend for a few years while in college and ended up getting married to someone else who treats her a lot
better, doesn't abuse her, "a good man" so to speak. Let's say this woman has a couple children, 1 boy and 1 girl. Let's also suppose that the boy and
girl grow up in a healthy, nurturing environment where their parents do not abuse them and give them the love and support they need; however, the girl
ends up in an abusive relationship like her mother was when she was younger. She believes that she doesn't deserve any better and say she actually
ends up dating this abusive guy for some time.
Let's also suppose that there is a man who was abused as a child growing up. Mother was also abused along with his older sister and younger brother by
their alcoholic father until his father died when he was the age of 24 due to cancer. He decides to "rise above" everything and is the better man for
it all. He ends up having children (2 girls, 1 boy) of his own with the woman of his dreams and they live in a beautiful home, great neighborhood,
etc. His children grow up in a loving, caring environment and all got good grades in school. However, their son starts out as being that popular
"jerk" to girls say in middle school. He turns out to be the guy who mistreats women (despite his parents teaching him otherwise), goes out to parties
starting around the age of 15 on a regular basis (and consequently drinks a lot of alcohol). When he is under the influence, he turns into a rather
violent individual. As he gets older, he turns out to be an alcoholic and is abusive to his live-in girlfriend while in college (who he ends up
marrying one day).
So if that young girl grew up in a rather healthy environment where she did not have exposure to all of this, why would she end up in situations
similar to what her mother was put into when she was younger (without knowing of her mother's past of course)? Why did that young man turn out to be
strikingly similar to his grandfather in terms of alcoholism and being abusive, despite growing up being taught very different values and whatnot? Is
it due to the young lady "not knowing better" because this young man is her first "love"? Does the young man in the second story become the same way
as his grandfather because he like others sometimes just can't deal with their own inner insecurities properly and resort to violence? Is it because
the young lady is similar to her mother (and the young man to his grandfather) in terms of personality and mindset, therefore attracting the same
types of people? Could it also be that these individuals inherited some subconscious memories of their relatives that they are in essence "re-living"
without any of them realizing this?
It's something to think about (hopefully this makes sense where I'm going with this ha ha) and I certainly think that it's something we should
consider. May be the idea of deja vu despite having never been to a certain place or seen a particular face (or one remotely similar in that) isn't
that far-fetched (possibly memories deeply rooted in DNA could be resurfacing that were passed onto those who experience it). I think it is silly to
claim the theory of cellular memory is bunk by sticking to old school ideologies yet verified scientific facts at the very least connote to the
possibility of it.
