Cells are Creepy

So I was scrolling through Facebook when I found an article on  the worldfactualy.com page. So basically a women is twice widowed when her second husband kills himself. First of all let me send my condolences out to the those affected by the loss.

Moment of silence is over.

Now let’s get to the juicy part of the story. So the first husband killed himself by shooting himself in the face. Terrible? Yes. Messy? Double yes. Fortunate? Actually it was for a poor man who needed a heart. The first husband’s heart was donated to the man in need. The man was so grateful that he wanted to meet the surviving family of the donor. The man falls in love with the wife of the donor and they get married. Unfortunately, some 12 years later, the second husband is found dead due to a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the throat. 

Coincidence, I think not. Before we go down the road of plotting or unbearable wife; I want to  propose the cellular memory theory. The cellular memory theory basically states that we have bits of our essence, what makes us us, is stored in our cells. In other words, “every cell in our body has its own ‘mind’…and if you transfer tissues from one body to another, the cells from the first body will carry memories into the second body” (Sylvia 221). The cell-brain may be the cause for the second husbands actions. 

Here’s another case:

“On May 29, 1988, a woman named Claire Sylvia received the heart of an 18-year-old male who had been killed in a motorcycle accident. Soon after the operation, Sylvia noticed some distinct changes in her attitudes, habits, and tastes. She found herself acting more masculine, strutting down the street (which, being a dancer, was not her usual manner of walking). She began craving foods, such as green peppers and beer, which she had always disliked before. Sylvia even began having recurring dreams about a mystery man named Tim L., who she had a feeling was her donor.

As it turns out, he was. Upon meeting the “family of her heart,” as she put it, Sylvia discovered that her donor’s name was, in fact, Tim L., and that all the changes she had been experiencing in her attitudes, tastes, and habits closely mirrored that of Tim’s (Sylvia179).” (Kate Ruth Linton)

If that story hasn’t won you over to the theory of cellular memory; consider a story of woman who receives new eyes from a troubled woman and then becomes haunted by the same visions as the original owner of the eyes. Well that story came from a movie called “The Eye”, starring Jessica Alba. If Hollywood is making movies about cellular memory, then it must be true, right? Cased closed.
