Thank you to James Stanbridge, Vice President at Declara, for authoring this blog post. You can read the full article here, but here is our reader’s digest version:

James explains that the full title of his post should be: How Learning Together Will Reconnect Us to Ancient Knowledge that Will Save the Human Race and opens by quoting from Deep DNA memory theories: Can we remember our ancestors’ lives?: It has been demonstrated that experiences necessary for a survival of a species are learned and that this knowledge is passed on to subsequent generations.

While on a flight from Singapore, crossing the equator into the southern hemisphere, traveling towards Uluru, James gazed out the window and marveled at the coastal landscape, he searched for signs of mankind and wondered at the lives lived there stretching back hundreds, thousands of generations ago. He writes, “We can all feel it–in the moment of this wonder there is connection or at least an urge to reconnect to something we once had or once knew, something that the only real mystery about is that we can’t remember how or where we became disconnected from long ago.”

James has embarked on a “personal journey to mindfulness” and through this, has realized that he isn’t looking for something new, but for something ancient.

This article articulates a phenomenon known as blood memory, which “embraces fully that Aboriginal bloodlines and memories tie themselves to genetics. Thus various nations carry forward various forms of memory of their cultures, traditions and some will also argue, language.” The article also notes that, “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.”

Fascinating? We think so. Learn for yourself:
