Longstanding conventional scientific findings and modern political correctness dictate that basic personality traits are due to environment, not genetics.
But advances in behavioral genetics stand in contrast to that theory.
Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology at Harvard, says: “The behavioral genetics findings have turned out to be substantial and robust, and new studies are linking genes to behavioral traits such as IQ.”
It alludes to the old debate of fate vs. free will in explaining how behavioral genetics is frequently avoided due to its seeming inherent lack of promise: “Behavioral genetics, the study of why people differ, has long been the most reviled subfield of psychology. Its characteristic findings – that all traits are in part heritable and that variation that cannot be attributed to genes cannot be attributed to families either – are regularly denied by commentators who consider them too fatalistic…Unlike the cute but short-lived news bait coming out of many psychology labs, behavioral genetics findings have turned out to be substantial and robust.”
Although he goes on to suggest that random accidents and luck may also play a role in determining personality, in traits that cannot be linked to genes or family, behavioral genetics sheds light on the concept of predetermination.
Biologists may disagree, but our findings show that random accidents and luck are completely absent from the forces that determine personality. Some call it genetics and luck, but we call it destiny.
“We may be biased, but fate is not.”

Rather than subscribe to the belief that twins are genetic mirrors and personality differences are only due to environment, we believe the truth is much deeper than that.
Being twins, we find genetics incomplete without the spiritual angle. By the way, even the most “identical” twins have different fingerprints, which seems to be a curious oversight by mainstream scientists.
Our findings show that you are not just a soulless piece of meat. As identical twins, we associate our physical and psychological differences with our unique spiritual heritages.
We may have had many lives together (fellow monks in an ancient spiritual order is one that comes to mind), but we’ve also had many separate lives, under very different circumstances (even on different planets; remember, there are hundreds of thousands of people). of millions of stars with potentially uninhabitable planets).
The reason we have become seemingly distant as we get older is that we believe our unique souls are shining through, representing our differences. Everyone has a unique soul, even identical twins.
It is curious that conventional science, since the Age of Reason over three hundred years ago, denies the soul and its influence on personality, while the scholars of antiquity did not.
The fact that modern technology still can’t duplicate the Great Pyramid is a small wake-up call to those who dismiss the ancients as barbarians and primitives. Much can be learned by setting aside often uncompromising conventional thinking and considering ancient principles and philosophies.
The genetic coding of DNA predetermines the core of your emotional, physical, and psychological make-up. Considering the evidence of myriad cases of past life regression and documented near-death experiences (NDEs), it is reasonable to assert that personal destiny is intertwined with the makeup of each person, and that there is such a thing as the soul. , the afterlife and reincarnation.
Perhaps the notion of personal responsibility, particularly in relation to past life actions, is one of the main reasons many people reject the theory of personal destiny. It is not easy for many to entertain the theory that you, and no one else, are responsible for your current life circumstances. Note: As we have always said, even the most severe tests in life may not be karmic retribution, but rather what the soul (not the personality) must experience for whatever reason, such as helping humanity avoid such situations in the future. .
Hidden spiritual factors dwarf conventional and mundane scientific claims, just as the vast universe dwarfs this relatively tiny speck of planet. Our findings show that genetics and environment are part of karma and personal destiny. Fortunately, you are free to do what you want, within the limits of your personal destiny; In spirit form, before incarnating, your higher self (soul) selects your general path for each lifetime.
