Is Systemic Racism A Product Of Inherited Memories?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I wonder if the electrical signals in our cells can carry the racism in some of our souls. Can science eliminate racism through cellular manipulation? Have you heard about the worm that can grow its head back?

... recorded a whole podcast and did not have the fucking record button pushed. Nice. I think I'll remember it. Maybe I'll do it even better the second time, since so some memory anyway. Yeah, so today's a little bit better day. Have a better outlook on the on the work situation, I do two things. mainly. I'm a freelance marketing consultant. I've been easing up on that work a little bit intentionally because I mostly like logo design and branding and naming. I don't like some of the social media campaigns as much. And the other thing I do is sales. Well, the sales job I've been giving an unfair amount of attention to and the company is just not holding up bits end of the deal. It's like not paying me on time...

...and things like that. Some, you know, things that make normal people like really freak out. I'm pretty calm about it, but still. Anyway, new options opened up. Some feeling better about it today. You know, I'm thinking about systemic racism, like how it keeps occurring in America or whatnot, and it came to my mind because I was reading this new book called the Emotions Code, I think that's what it's called. A bunch of good reviews on Amazon, tons like hundreds of thousands, four five stars, and you know me, I'm a sucker for the stars. Well, I got the book and while I'm into things like, HMM, what would you call it? Acupuncture, accupressure, Chiropractic work? MMM, herbs. Lem into that stuff, I'm draw the line of candles. I know people are into what do you call it? Stuff, smelly stuff, a Roma therapy. I like it, but I'm not sure how much it helps me.

I'm kind of a SPAS OF ROMA therapy. MMM, I don't know. My brains already overwhelmed for the Roman therapy. But anyway. So what I'm saying is I like, I'm down with a lot of alternative medicine. I don't believe like in astrology, where I think it's fun, it must have been based on something at some point, not unlike religion. For some people it's fun, was based on something, nothing to live your life around. So this fucking book emotions code starts talking about healing with magnets. Like literally taking a magnet, running it from here a forehead, between your eyes straight up over your forehead to the top of your head and back down to your spine and then back. Well, you do that a few times while you're thinking of a memory you want to get rid of or release, and there you go. They have a whole bunch of like the first third of the book is telling you how to find out if you have a memory that you'd...

...like to release. So you and I, we probably don't need that part of the book at all. I mean, I could think of like a thousand. I have a whole list of podcast topics of that Shit, just stuff I need to release. So the magnet thing, like, okay, I give it a shot, still trying it, but I feel like a fucking Weirdo and you can't say, Oh, maybe you're doing it wrong. I'm following the instructions and I still look feel like a Weirdo. Okay, and yeah, part of the book starts talking about inherited emotions, inherited feelings and things like that. So like, well, that's that's like systemic racism. Do we inherit not? Not Through our words and deeds as much, because seems like every other generation we like stomp down the Nazis and then they come back. But I'm like what, what is it? We talked about...

...the authoritarian quiz, about eighteen percent of people on earth like Authoritarians. So that's not it. It's not a it's thinking more of racism. Racism, like what makes white people in America think that they're so entitled and what makes Black People in America feel so victimized? Like what causes that? Aside from the reality of every day, like what caused the reality? Like what makes us act that way to bring the reality to fruition? So I'm somewhat curious about the idea of inherited emotions, mostly on that grounds, like I don't think I inherited my parents emotions or anything like that. My kids may have inherited mine, I don't know. We'll see when I get to this weird little experiments I read about. Then we'll decide for ourselves. If you ever heard the idea that we choose our parents before we're born, like we're magical star dust out there and then we just before we come into existence, we...

...find these people that we need to learn lessons from? Somebody tried to tell me that this is way they thought and like that's bullshit, because I know way too many kids that have been abused and neglected. There's no fucking way they chose that existence like because they needed to learn that lesson. So fuck off. So go back to the science, though, of inherited feelings, memories, emotions and such a big fan of science improving things. There's really fascinating shit in science and a lot of times we'll go to the more simple organisms to try to find out what's really happening. Such is the case with tube worms. So you've probably heard the idea that, like can lizards, you cut off the tail on the tail will grow back, and there's some worms where you cut off, you know, basically cut them in a half, and they'll grow the rest of the tail back. Well, there's a couple of species that of worms that will actually grow the head back as well. So they did a test. They somehow they use some kind of chemical...

...that would shock the worm in a way that the worm could predict it was about to be shocked and then learn to divert itself from the shock. Sounds pretty complex, but anyway, they figured out a way to do this. Anyway, so the worm knows that, oh, don't do that or there will be a shock. Well, then they cut the worms head off and this particular worm, of course, the one with the head, with the brain, the memory, so to speak, grows. It's the rest of its body back and of course, strangely but probably predictably, it remembers. That's the thing that will shock you. Don't UN coe near that. Well, this particular species of worm, the tail, also grows a new head and brain, effectively making two new worms. Where there was one worm, now there's two. The worm number two, let's call it, the worm that was just the tail, that grew its head back and a new brain. Well, strangely enough, that worm carried in its electrical essence of its...

...tail alone, enough of the memory so that when it created its new brain and head, it also knew not to fuck with that thing that shocked it. All the other worms that were not trained about the shock. They didn't know Dick about the shock. They cannot. They've just walked into and they got shocked. But both worm number one and it's clone that's grew its own fresh new head without any brain at all to start with. Both of them new. So worm number two inherited those memories from its previous self, not in a brain, not in a communication way, not in words or anything spoken, but in the cells of its body. It remembered a new thing. So that's what's fascinating. Then I started thinking, well, maybe that explains why racism is so hard to get rid of, as we keep reproducing. It's in our cells, not in our souls, like we have good...

...souls, we think. But if it's a literally in our cells and we're communicating this to our next generations electronically through our circuits to the liquid circuits in our minds, that's fucked up. Hopefully science will have an answer for that in the future. I don't have one now, but it's super fascinating to think about, especially the worm experiment. So that should be enough to feel your mind for the rest of the few hours, I guess. Anyway, I'm on social media. Try Not to be too much to get all agitated, but if you want to connect with me on like twitter at John Emotions, and you can go on facebook and search for emo do Joe. That's over there. I don't really participate. is nothing there yet. And the quickest, fastest way, though, just go to John emotionscom send me an email you can call me. There's a phone number there if you want to...

...leave a message for the show. I'll play it on the air. Will have grand old time. All right, cool, thanks for being here. I appreciate you and talk to you tomorrow. And now back to the wall.
