I absolutely love this theory, It would account for such a lot.... :headscratch:


Deep DNA memory theories: Can we remember our ancestors’ lives?


Research into the nature of DNA has revealed that this material within each cell of our bodies has important implications for who each one of us is, on many levels.

In addition to determining our physical characteristics, our vulnerabilities to certain diseases, and maybe even our personality, is it possible that the DNA helix holds some of the important memories of our ancestors?

Theories that suggest that we can tap into the deep nature of DNA to uncover ancient memories are not new. In the 1960s, some psychological researchers claimed that there may be keys that unlock our DNA, revealing experiences of generations of our relatives who lived long before our present time.

In the 1988 movie ALTERED STATES starring William Hurt, the main character, a research scientist (Hurt) dives deep into his consciousness and genetic roots. In the film, he not only relives ancient experiences of his ancestors, he actually changes on the biological level.

This film was reportedly based on the real-life research of prominent psychologists and medical researchers of the 1960s and ‘70s who used isolation tanks and pharmacological triggers to access deep DNA memories and experiences, which they claimed were real.

These ideas are similar in a way to the concepts of past lives and reincarnation. However, this DNA-related line of thinking focuses on the previous lives within us that are based on genetic memories, encoded on the DNA helix within us.

BLUEPRINT, MEMORY BANK, INNER SPACE

The DNA within all living things is the blueprint for what each organism becomes, subject to the environmental influences that can also have significant effects.

For humans, recent discoveries about DNA are rapidly changing our views about the importance of this material. DNA may affect us much more significantly than we imagined. And, it may hold keys to further discoveries.

It has long been known that our physical appearance is determined by the combination of DNA from our mother and father. Now, researchers are confirming that certain diseases and disorders have direct links to our DNA. Our health may be programmed to some degree by our genetic history.

Our IQ and aptitudes, musical skills, athletic ability, even our psychological and emotional traits may be significantly affected by the DNA within us.

It has been demonstrated that experiences necessary for survival of a species are learned and that this knowledge is passed on to subsequent generations. In some cases this is mostly likely at least partially through DNA and the unconscious “instinct” that results. Even tiny and simple organisms learn crucial survival skills and pass these on.

For humans, with our relatively complex brain, feelings and memories, what other kinds of experiences might be saved in our DNA over the many thousands of years when our ancestors were born, lived and died? And, can they be accessed by us here and now?

OUR ANCESTORS WITHIN US

Because learning about situations that are necessary for survival of a species are probably saved as a kind of unconscious genetic memory, those fundamental human experiences could be deep down in our DNA somewhere.

Let’s say you have always had a significant fear of bears since you were a child. Even Smokey the Bear and other friendly Hollywood bears could not convince you to regard bears with anything but anxiety and fearful feelings.

Maybe it is possible that deep, deep within your DNA memory banks, your great-great-great-great-grandmother or great-great-great-great-grandfather had a very bad experience with a bear two hundred years ago. Maybe they saw someone be killed by a bear. Maybe they had to climb a tree to save themselves from being eaten by a bear.

Would a life-changing experience like this, resulting in knowledge very useful for survival, possibly be encoded in the DNA and passed on to future generations and you?

If there were a way to go deep down into your mind and consciousness, and into your genetic history, maybe through some kind of altered state like a dream or through some kind of trigger, could you recall and experience that event?

Could you relive and re-experience in some way great-great-great-great grandma’s or grandpa’s harrowing and hair-raising close encounter with a hungry bear two hundred years ago?

What about some similar “peak experience” or life-changing event of an ancient relative five hundred years ago? What about five thousand years ago? After all, we know that at least some part of that history is inside all of us, right in the DNA in every cell of our body, right now.

WHAT WE KNOW AND DON’T KNOW

Scientific researchers are gradually uncovering the secrets of our DNA. They have identified the functions of and relationships between some of this material. Many genes remain a mystery and their purpose is unknown.

Sometimes, these mystery genes are called “junk DNA.” According to some researchers, this may be an inaccurate label. Because the purpose and nature of this DNA material is not understood, it certainly does not mean it is useless junk.

As is often the case in scientific discovery, the more we know, the more we realize how little we know. Each question answered can raise many new questions.

For some, our human overconfidence and even arrogance can sometimes trick us into believing that we know all of the answers.

However, in the field of genetics research, there seems to be so much that is not known, that for an open-minded person, these kinds of theories about deep DNA memories cannot be ruled-out.

To conduct our own personal research and to find out for ourselves, maybe all we need to do is listen to our inner DNA.

Listen to the voices, feelings, sights and experiences of our ancestors. Their lives, joys and fears are within us. In that way, they are with us always.

Yeah, Me too!! I love it. I've- for the longest time- always felt that there is more to the reincarnation thing then we know. Perhaps this theory would explain those feelings, or has something to do with it. I've always had a very strong affinity to certain periods in history- and have felt- sometimes very strongly- that I was there- some how.

Great thread. :flop:

Thanks hawk, Yeah its also my belief that reincarnation is more closely related to inherited memories, I also have a strong affinity to certain periods in history, particularly ( as daft as it may sound ) ancient greece and Turkey... :flop:

Good post :flop:

This pdf file may be of interest:
http://www.cyjack.com/cognition/Genetic%20Memory.pdf

Some scientists go even further and suggest that these memory molecules
might store information themselves, that each individual neuron contains
memory.

Either way this is a radical concept because the usual concept of our genetic
code is of something fixed at the beginning of our lives, not something that
gets re-written on a daily basis, and certainly not every brain cell being
allowed to tamper with that code. But looking at it from an evolutionary point
of view this arrangement does fulfil an abiding principle – that of Occam’s
razor.


Another interesting site:
http://theconnectome.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/inherited-memory/

Scientists have discovered a molecular mechanism by which a parent’s experiences can alter the genes of its children.

Several recent studies have demonstrated connections between environmental factors and inherited genetic traits – for instance, people whose parents lived through famine tend to have higher rates of diabetes and heart disease – but this latest research, published in the journal Nature, marks the first hard evidence of such a modification process at work.


For myself, I have a real affinity with two quite different time periods, the first being late Medieval England and the second, Ancient Egypt. I do wonder if some of my ancesters had really good times and passed on the memories of their adventures down the DNA chain to me. I'm forever reading stuff or seeing films on those two time periods - it was good to hear someone else mention it!

I think that dna expands into all dimensions, or that our consciousness is able to track the spiral all the way to 'infinity'.
Reason for this is that not only the lines of previous lives can be found (or better the lines that are connected beyond the mist of life / death, because it wasn't you, the person now, that had these lifes), but also the memory of the species.
In a certain state there is total knowing, total connection, in another there is total synchronicity, a force flows through the person that can't be stopped.

I for one, never managed to stay in these states for longer then a month or so, don't know why that is, but think it's because there is also karma, limited beliefs and so on that has to resolved.
To come in such a state is also not only a matter of technic more a matter of 'mercy'.

My opinion of course.

That made me think; I've allways viewed 'life' like water dropplets in a river heading for the sea, as each little dropplet travels, it collects little bits of debris (memories?), which stay with it, it merges with the greater water flow, yet remains an individual, all sorts of things happen, it gets drunk by animals and returns to the river via the earth, and continues its journey, different again, but the same drop of water.

All the time heading for the vast sea - infinity.

dna is not fixed, it mutates ,evolves, and changes.

My mother and i share a memory of pastlife, its set in the Victorian period, and its more of flash memory in which i had the opinion that she was then my sister, i didn't know it was shared until one day i mentioned it, she and i wrote down what we saw and it was exactly the same, set in what seemed like a back room of a grocery shop, [that was the impression i got] there was also one more person in the room, it appeared to be my father but in that life i think he was married to my mother, there was also a heavy deep sense of oppression.
I have four flash memories of past lives, starting in 1742, i have also come across people in this life i have seen in the past.


PS if anyone is interested in self hypnosis to discover past lives i have an excellent CD which i am in the process of finding, i will upload it to my computer and gladly share it with you, give me a couple of days.
