What makes us individuals?
« on: 08/12/2007 17:24:00 »
I bet this topic has come up before numerous times but can't find any of the threads. I have almost no idea how genetics works and I have just made a post on Jon Ronson's forum in a thread about storing the human genome as computer data where I suggest that there are other things beyond the genome that make us who we are, including:

1) mitochondrial DNA
2) bacteria and stuff
3) neural circuitry

I would love to know more about this. I'll put a link back to this thread from the Jon Ronson forum (where I am known as 'Space Adventures').
