Hi blogger friends,
If you've read The Spiral Vortex you will recall that David Cohen discovers cognitive information (including past life memories) is stored in DNA. He also learns how to access those memories and to transfer consciousness from one life to the next.
Recently I read a great article by Dr. Bernard Widrow, Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, entitled: Cognitive Memory. He opines that long term memory is stored in DNA. Here are some excerpts and some links to the article:
"All animals are born with intrinsic knowledge that is essential for survival.
Inborn knowledge in the form of patterns is pre-loaded in the developing brain’s longterm memory and remains intact throughout lifetime. A baby horse is up and walking within a half hour of birth. How to walk is inborn knowledge. The horse didn’t learn this in half an hour. A baby bird, at the right time, jumps from the nest and flies for the first time. How to fly is inborn knowledge. The bird couldn’t possibly learn to fly when jumping from the nest, before hitting the ground.
"It is conjectured that the memory storage means and the memory retrieval means for inborn knowledge is same as for new knowledge gained during a lifetime. The two kinds of knowledge are treated in the same way, and the animal can operate seamlessly between them.
"At the moment of conception, DNA is taken from the mother and father to form a new cell. That is the start of a new living animal. The DNA of the new cell contains the information to construct the body, the internal organs, including the brain. The DNA also contains the inborn information that will be pre-loaded in the developing brain. Inborn information is stored in DNA. The mechanism for storage and retrieval is probably the same for inborn knowledge as for all knowledge gained during a lifetime.
"Here are some “wild guesses”:
"All information stored in long-term memory is stored digitally in DNA. The amount of DNA needed to store a lifetime of acquired knowledge is very small. (All inborn knowledge is stored originally in the DNA of a single cell, probably in its “junk DNA”.) Having acquired knowledge over a lifetime, some DNA in the brain will be different from the DNA in the rest of the body.
Since this DNA stays in the brain, the lifetime knowledge is not passed on genetically to the next generation, only the inborn knowledge can propagate.
"Long-term memory is not stored in the neurons, synapses, and the dendritic tree. The neurons and the dendritic tree play a key role in association and retrieval of information that is stored long-term in DNA."
