Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
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. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

makes me wonder what the fuck my ancestors were doing
SO GENETIC MEMORY ISN’T JUST SOME SHITTY THING THAT APPEARS IN SCIENCE FICTION

TOP 10 UNDER APPRECIATED DOCTOR/ROSE MOMENTS
↳ 9. ‘utopia’
this may not initially look like a scene for a doctor/rose shipper, but if you look deep enough it is easy to see. it’s a big difference from when jack and the doctor are talking about rose at the beginning of the episode. in this scene the conversation goes straight to jack’s immortality which obviously leads to rose. the doctor obviously does not like to think of rose because whenever he does, his face is struck with an expression of complete heartbreak, especially when jack says he’s sorry; you can see in the doctor’s eyes that he just wants to get away from this conversation quickly because it hurts to think about her.
This is a HUGE scene for all characters involved:
- Jack learns about how he became immortal and what really happened to Rose
- Martha learns that Rose isn’t just some ex-girlfriend who dumped the Doctor and left him heartbroken, and her face when she realizes that he truly lost the woman he loves is just… Freema, you shipper you, ILU.
- It’s the first time that the Doctor really talks about what happened to Rose. He talks to Jack about her because Jack knew her, Jack loves her too and Jack knows how much she means to the Doctor.
Ugh this scene is another EXCELLENT scene in a perfect episode.
