Your article reminded me of something I have wondered about for many decades. Perhaps you could write about it or suggest someone who could.

It’s this: instincts are memories that are passed on from parents. As far as we know, no other memories are passed.

To me, this implies that some lower part of our brain is capable of passing things on. That raised several questions in my mind.

What makes that possible and why aren’t other memories passed? Can we change that?

Can we remove instincts from being passed? Could we replace them with new, more appropriate instincts for our times?

Large moral questions surround all that as well.

I’d love to read the Science Duuude treatment :)
