Scientists Just Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down for 14 Generations

Scientists Just Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down for 14 Generations

Scientists have made some incredible new discoveries on how our minds can literally affect our biology, especially through the study of epigenetics, the branch of science that looks at how inherited changes of phenotype (appearance) or gene expression are caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence. Instead of looking at DNA as the only factor controlling our biology, scientists are also looking at what’s actually controlling the DNA, which includes our thoughts.

Studies Show Psilocybin Causes Hyper-Connectivity in the Brain

When psilocybin interacts with the neuron-receptors in the brain, it blocks that receptors ability to interact with serotonin, thereby greatly affecting perception, mood appetite, and a number of other factors you take for granted. The end result is a hyper-connectivity between parts of the brain that normally don’t speak to each other. The effect of this is what most people call a trip. It is during these types of psychedelic experiences that one may have the sensation of tasting colors or hearing smells.

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our life.

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.
