    Often we may say something like: "Oh she's just like her mother." or "He takes after his father." when it's something to do with aptitude, ability or personality. Physical resemblance is easy to understand but what of these character similarities?

    Do we share aptitudes, preferences etc. because they're genetically inherited (not taught or copied down to nurture) or because we're from the same spiritual soul-group?

    Are we really like our parents in nature and aptitude because we chose 'em as parents because of their similar character or values? Or is it simple genetics that result in family members sometimes turning out remarkably similar? (not just appearance)

    Interesting. Well, if the brain is not the mind, it would make sense that we would share some of the same qualities with others. This might be tied in with the concept, if true, of how mice are finding their way through mazes faster now. It's all so much bigger than our physical brains. Just my guess...
