Does the heart store the memory of its previous owner?
Strange tales about heart transplants
There are many well documented cases of the transformations that have taken place after the heart of one person is hosted by another. These examples add to the evidence that a heart interacts with the new body based on its previous memory. It even has its own Wi-Fi and Blue tooth functions. Is this data is relayed from the physical heart or is the heart’s computer logging onto some form of cosmic “internet”? Perhaps science will provide the answer one day. We have to accept it as a phenomenon.
Green peppers, beer and chicken nuggets?
On 29 May 1988 Claire Sylvia received a heart transplant and was told that her donor had been an eighteen year-old male – a motorcycle accident victim. Soon after her recovery from surgery Sylvia began drinking beer and eating chicken nuggets and green peppers for the first time in her life. Then she started having recurring dreams about somebody called Tim, whom she felt was the organ donor. After searching for obituaries in newspapers published from Tim’s area she was able to identify the young man whose heart she had received and his name was Tim. He used to love chicken nuggets, green peppers and beer.
The heart identifies the killer of its first owner
An eight year old girl who received the heart of a murdered ten year-old girl had recurring nightmares about the murder. It was confirmed by a psychiatrist that somehow she was witnessing the actual event. The new heart was communicating with her. With the information that “came through” the police were able to track down and apprehend the killer.
Sexual orientation changes – gay no more
The heart of a 19 year old woman who was killed in an automobile accident was given to a 29 year-old lesbian. After her transplant she felt confused. She had absolutely no desire to be with a woman anymore and wanted a male partner. As we say, it is the heart that knows about love.
A catering manager with a new talent
William Sheridan, a retired catering manager with poor drawing skills spontaneously developed artistic talents after his heart transplant surgery. He had received the heart of an artist. The heart still wanted to express this creativity. How can we doubt that the heart is equipped with a central processing unit – just like a computer!
The domino transplant trilogy
Jim needed a functional pair of lungs in order to survive. A heart and lung transplant was his best option, so his heart was removed. It was healthy enough to be donated to Paul, a calm laid-back gentle sort of person. After the transplant he became very aggressive – more like Jim who had donated the heart. It dictated the mode it preferred! But the heart and lungs of the young woman who had committed suicide in a melancholy state over a lost love had a depressing effect on “agro” Jim. She had been a shy, soft-spoken individual. Jim became morose and sullen after the transplant and died a few years later. Did an unhappy suicidal heart contribute to his fate?
A rekindled love for an old violin
A 17 year old boy loved classical music and played the violin. He was killed in a car accident on his way to a music lesson. A 47 year old man who did rough manual labour in a foundry received the boy’s heart and soon after developed a fascination for classical music. He had previously never paid any attention to music and was said to be tone deaf.
Please look after your own heart, you might just develop strange habits that you don’t like with the new one…
