There's some sort of concept, perhaps just a supposition or maybe something more, that refers to carrying memories of one's ancestors. Anybody know what it's called and have an opinion on it? Thanks.

Without having knowing them at all? That sounds superstitious or "instinctual". Otherwise, if they did know them, that's simply memory???
I don't get it.

It's without knowing them, like when rats learn from their mother without something being demonstrated.

Genetic memory. No opinion on it.

Genetic memory and I think it has some compelling points.
