Peeranormal Podcast: Do Transplant Recipients Take on the Personalities of Their Donors?

Peeranormal 08: Do Transplant Recipients Take on the Personalities of Their Donors?

I was a cohost on Peeranormal again with Michael Heiser, Doug Van Dorn, Doug Overmyer, Natalina and Trey Stricklin.

There have been dozens of documented cases where the recipient of a transplant, often involving the heart, apparently take on the personalities of the organ donor. Recipients also report memories of the donor, and memories that belong to the donor, despite never having met the donor. These cases range from very young children to adults. How can memories and behaviors be transmitted from one person to the next when brain and neural tissue is not involved? Does this phenomenon relate to the question of consciousness?

    I have heard about people who have claimed to take on personality traits of their donors in the secular news. I know we inherit personality traits from our ancestors. I have seen it in my own family. This was very interesting to get the different views from the published literature and as well views from the panel.
    I myself as not had a transplant, but I have had a blood transfusion. Personally I do believe in cellular memory because that would explain such things as children who even as very small children believe they had a past life. We can inherit a lot more from our ancestors than we could begin to understand.
