Human Intelligence is the Result of Genetic Memory Genetic memory is a process in which a memory is passed down through the generations without the individual having to experience first-hand the topic of the memory. Genetic memory, simply put, is complex abilities and actual sophisticated knowledge inherited along with other more typical and commonly accepted physical and behavioral characteristics. In everyday terms, that means we get our intelligence, as well as our hair, skin and eye color from our families. In psychology, genetic memory is defined as a memory present at birth that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is incorporated into the genome over long spans of time. In everyday terms, that means we remember things that we have never been exposed to, because it's been in our genes for so long. Genetic memories are defined as posited memories, feelings, and ideas inherited from our ancestors as part of a collective consciousness. These may be things like a natural fear of certain predators or insects, or things like a sense of taste, etc.. No one is sure yet just how much or what type of information is genetically passed from generation to generation. There are many theories concerning whether intellectual memory is inherited, and if so, how much. As modern man, we've managed to access genetic memory to some degree, but we still harbor such unbelievable potential. Intelligence, particularly the ability of genes to retain memory, has long been of primary interest to human genetic research. The first methodical set of experimental observations can be traced back to Galton’s work in 1865, a year before Mendel’s influential article on the laws of heredity. Using statistical tools, Galton evaluated the transmission of several traits in families. He concluded that many traits, including mental ability, are genetically transmitted and normally distributed in the general population. In 1881, Théodule Ribot held that psychological and genetic memory were based upon a common mechanism, and that the former only differed from the latter in that it interacted with consciousness. Brain scientists say that the size of certain regions of the brain are under tight genetic control, and that the larger these regions are, the higher the intelligence. The study of intelligence genetics examines how much, and by what manner, mental abilities are affected by genes. Many genetic and environmental factors influence intelligence, and the role Deoxyribonucleic acid plays in memory is one that science continues to struggle to understand. In the case of our ancestors, genetic intelligence has most certainly passed from generation to generation, though it was suppressed by the priority of survival for thousands of years. This is evidenced by the fact that the less time we began to spend on survival, the more advanced we became. Our intelligence is as natural to us as spots are to a cheetah, or stripes to a zebra. We are the only creatures that have ever existed on this planet who possess the power of creation. We not only create tools, we use them to make even more sophisticated tools, then adapt them for dozens of applications. Our intellectual development has exponentially increased in the last 100 years, and is estimated to grow by another 30% each year. To put that in perspective; a weekly edition of the New York Times today contains more information than the average person was likely to come across in an entire lifetime during seventeenth-century England. Will genetic memory lead to human extermination? Because we were placed on Earth to protect interstellar civilization from our negative behaviors, it is extremely probable that if we accomplish manned interstellar flight without first genetically and behaviorally altering ourselves in a positive way, we will bring about our imminent destruction. I assure you, our genetic and intellectual development has not just been of interest to us. Will genetic memory lead to human extermination? Possibly and probably. As we technologically approach the ability to permanently leave this planet, we remain constantly under intense observation by aliens.
Second Bangalore School on Population Genetics and Evolution URL: http://www.icts.res.in/program/popgen2016 DESCRIPTION: Just as evolution is central to our understanding of biology, population genetics theory provides the basic framework to comprehend evolutionary processes. Population genetics theory allows quantitative predictions of evolutionary processes, integrating mathematical and statistical concepts with fundamental biological principles of genetic inheritance and processes such as mutation and selection. Population genetics theory is thus critical to understanding many pressing issues in biology, such as the evolution of antibiotic resistance in pathogens, the formation of new species and the emergence of cooperative and altruistic behaviors. This school aims to expose students and researchers from diverse backgrounds to the basics and the forefront of current research in population genetics. Students from the disciplines of biology, mathematics, medicine, physics, and statistics who are interested in evolutionary theory are all welcome to apply for participation in this program. The school will introduce and develop an understanding of population genetics and quantitative genetics, and their applications. Research seminars and poster sessions will also be held during this school. ORGANIZERS: Deepa Agashe, Kavita Jain
