Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop.

This is FASCINATING! And, if true, explains so much and the implications are endless!

Since I was a teenager, I have felt an intense connection with my ancestors – most of whom I never met. I believe there are so many unexplored avenues in genetics, not least of which is it’s relationship to predispositions and memories.

A little phobic déjà vu anyone?!

    The connections between ancestors, ancestral fears, and our lives in the present is astounding. I have two phobias, and it would be something to find they did not originate with me. Thanks for sharing this.
