Cellular Memory

The concept is that every cell in our body holds memory. Events, emotions, even past lives are stored up in our cells. Even if you don't buy into what Sylvia Browne has to say on the subject, the fact is that many transplant recipients develop new, very different personality traits post-transplant. Everything from a new musical talent to a drastic change in food preference. Ask anyone who works regularly with transplant patients. My husband has had 2 transplants. The first kidney came from his brother, and he didn't notice any difference in how he felt in any way: physically, mentally, or emotionally. That kidney was taken over by disease fairly quickly, and he went back on dialysis. Several years later he had a cadaveric transplant. He developed a fear terror of falling through ice. He's been a hockey player all of his life. He had that transplant in February, and did recovered very well. He spent the rest of the winter in short sleeved shirts, he was always hot. Later, we found out that the donor had fallen through the ice on a lake while riding an ATV. 13 years after the transplant, those new traits haven't diminished. He won't play hockey on anything but a rink, and he's always warm. Could these be some leftover memory of the final moments of the donor? Kinda creepy. It wasn't until last year that we looked up the newspaper article describing the accident and death. It messed with his head a bit to know the guy's name and age.
