It is said that all of us have ancestral memories locked away within us. Some even argue to say that these memories are kept in consciousnesses separate from our own, or, to put it more simply, in multiple personalities. To unlock these memories is to gain an infinite amount of wisdom from the mistakes and experiences of the past, but to access the memories, one would have to discover their “other” personalities, and once they’re awakened, they’ll be wanting a body to STAY awake in….

      I was thinking the same thing, but to me it sounds like if you discover your ‘other personalities’ you’ll become more like that specific ancester than yourself.

    Hello.

    Ah, Mr. Jung.

    It is amazing that so few are aware of his forays into the world of the unknown and the supernatural.

    Indeed, his love of the esoteric is evident in his works. His exploration of the intangible potential of humanity is akin to the scholars of old.

    I take my hat off to him.

    How far humanity has fallen.

    @DM: Actually, it’s more like the concept of Other Memory as found in the Dune series of novels. In fact, one character (Alia Atreides) is taken over by the personality of her paternal grandfather. Unfortunately, he happens to be the ruthless Baron Harkonnen.

    So…did I say ‘more like’? I meant ‘exactly like’.

    Ok…well, i find it more of an advantage of having multiple personalities instead of a disadvantage of finding…ugh…wisdom?..yeah..

    Collective Unconscious, or more accurately Collective Subconscious is a term of analytical psychology, coined by Carl Jung. While Freud did not distinguish between an “individual psychology” and a “collective psychology”, Jung distinguished the collective subconscious from the personal subconscious particular to each human being. The collective subconscious is also known as “a reservoir of the experiences of our species.”[

    @#9: There is a scientific theory that states that all of the memories of all of our ancestors are ‘locked’ away deep in our genetic code. Scientists are experimenting to test this theory and to potentially ‘unlock’ those hidden experiences. They theorize that if this is possible, that thousands of years of knowledge could be obtained by one person, without having been there themselves. This pasta takes it a step further and claims that if these memories ARE opened, then the minds of those who owned the memories will attempt to take over your body for themselves.

    As far a creepypasta goes, this is not creepy at all but a very interesting subject nonetheless.

    Not that creepy or brix-worthy, and not very well written…It has a lot of potential, but it needs some work.

    This was a strange pasta.. I wouldn’t really want someone else’s soul or personality invading my body ):

    The ‘WHO WAS’ are getting old. They’re funny the first 5 times but then get incredibly boring.

    Before people go “Assassins Creed ripoff” I think it’s worth noting that this is a theory that has been discussed a lot and is not that far from fiction. Our DNA supposedly has memory stored in it, and that may be exactly what we’ve been referring to as “instinct”.

    Mr. Welldone I find your comments both inspiring and illuminating, a tip of my hat to you sir.
    As for the pasta, what it lacks in creepiness it more than makes up for in being extraordinarily interesting.
    Bravo.
