Does Psychic Ability Pass Down in a Family Line, Genetically?
My theology professor posed the question today whether or not psychic abilities were hereditary in origin. Meaning, can you inherit being psychic from your mother or father, or even further down in your family line? And if so, can it skip several generations, effectively making it seem like there is no psychic gene in a family besides one person. This really got me thinking. Although obviously psychic abilities exist, and we see them portrayed in Hollywood and flicks, very uncommon is it for anyone to discuss if they inherited any psychic abilities. It may be rushed upon in a movie or TV series, that a certain character that happens to be psychic may have inherited their abilities from their mother or father, however, it is very rarely directly addressed.
With that mentioned, in real life I happen to know several psychics of whom also have psychic mothers and psychic grandmothers before them. I would find it a ridiculous coincidence if almost every psychic I knew had a maternal psychic ahead of them, unless of course there were a connection to be drawn. I can only ASSUME that psychic ability CAN be genetic, or IS genetic. When my professor posed the additional question of whether or not psychic genes could skip a generation or 2, I began to realize it was more likely that all psychic ability is genetic. Just when you find a psychic whose parents were not psychic themselves, it was simply likely somewhere in their family line if they went back far enough, a psychic would be found.
By the end of the course, the entire classroom was erupting with opinion. Half the class felt psychic abilities were learned, a well-developed skill. The other half the class (myself included) psychic abilities were genetic and passed down in a family line. The thing is, both arguments could be true at the same time without posing any threat to the existence of the other theory. So I don’t know why everybody is so emotional about this topic…but I thought I’d type up my two cents on the issue!
