High-precision technique stores cellular 'memory' in DNA
by Massachusetts Institute of Technology






Using a technique that can precisely edit DNA bases, MIT researchers have created a way to store complex "memories" in the DNA of living cells, including human cells.

The new system, known as DOMINO, can be used to record the intensity, duration, sequence, and timing of many events in the life of a cell, such as exposures to certain chemicals. This memory-storage capacity can act as the foundation of complex circuits in which one event, or series of events, triggers another event, such as the production of a fluorescent protein.

Sounds like we're one step closer to the Altered Carbon universe

V'Ger don't need no carbon based lifeforms

Perhaps this is how all memories are stored. If info like this comes from MIT it's worth taking very seriously.

But only since it comes from MIT, right? People been saying that DNA stores memory since for a long damn time now.

But they don’t know how. This may open the door to understanding how memory works, both short and long term. We may even be able to read the memories of the dead whose brains were preserved.

Mea culpa. I genuflected to MIT because of my great respect for their research capabilities. There are, of course, other great institutions doing research but MIT is my favorite. I was born in Boston so I may be exhibiting a small bit of homerism.

I think we still have much to learn about DNA. For instance, how did ancient man know about it? They didn't know it's inner workings, I don't think, but "Jacob's Ladder", "The Tower of Babylon", the I Ching, and other things are all influenced by man's glimpses into man's DNA. The Kundalini "serpent energy", so on and so forth. The Kabbala Tree of Life.

DNA not only stores memory, IMO, but can also speak directly to us.

Same way they knew about the structure of the solar system, the # of planets and earths position in it - The Anunnaki

I know you're keen on the Anunnaki,Bowl, but I'm not convinced. Not in this case especially. When Francis Crick discovered the double helix nature of DNA he wasn't communicating with space aliens. He was high on LSD. He gleaned that information from within his own body.

Well it's definitely possible that ancient people were gaining insight from shrooms or some type of Ayahuasca like substance. I can believe that.

Too bad they're all wrapped up in this Jeffrey Epstein shit,huh? Did you know they've accepted millions in donations from Epstein even knowing his was a convicted pedophile and child exploiter? They tried to keep the donations hush hush. Big to-do, apparently. One of their big wig types just suddenly resigned.

I saw this too. Wow.

Lets dont discount the science here, but damn !

Yeah. It's pretty bad. They referred to Epstein as Voldemort there at MIT.

Sorry for the derailment. It's just crazy that we had just recently spoke of MIT. Apparently Epstein was a mad scientist type guy. Total bad guy. He bought his way into Harvard and MIT and was donating to this Ito dude who happens to run some "Ethics in the application of AI" type stuff. While their dinner table conversations often turned to shite like Epstein seeding his DNA across the planet, eugenics, and transhumanism.

Ugh. Thanks MIT.

quote:

Staff of the MIT Media Lab working for the lab’s director, Joichi Ito, reportedly referred to criminal financier Jeffrey Epstein as “Voldemort,” or “he who must not be named,” referencing the popular “Harry Potter” villain whose name is tabooed in the book series.
