Spiritual and metaphysical ramifications of organ transplants
This is something that has been on my mind for quite a while; but I really don't know who I could ask that would have more insights into this matter. I know there is a bright and vibrant community here, so I thought to turn here.
Two and a half years ago, I had a kidney transplant. It was a great blessing in my life to be able to continue my life. I have gone through much struggle and turmoil since for many reasons, one of the primary being getting divorced from my wonderful wife.
There's a reason this pertains to this discussion. I was blessed to have someone living, in a great act of love, donate one of their kidneys to me. This was my mother-in-law. I forever carry a part of her in me, and in a sense, makes me feel another tie to my ex-wife as well. (FYI, my donor and I have been able to continue with our close bond that really can't be described adequately).
This all leads to my question. In the past, I have read and heard various ideas regarding the mind or soul and body. That our cells hold our memory and other such things. I haven't had any what I would call metaphysical experiences, but I wonder, now that part of someone else is in me, how does that affect my spirit, my energy? And, interestingly, would the fact my donor is female and I male have any influence there?
I'm curious to others' opinions or if anyone has written anything around this modern miracle.
My friend told me he had heard stories about people's personalities changing and so on with an organ transplant.
But I don't know the sources or the exact details of the stories. Some googling might root them out though.
There are stories , a guy gets a hart of this person that liked chicken nugets , and then likes chicken nugets him self . A lady gets the corinia ( part of the eye ) from a lady , and is able to inentify the killer .
