Cellular Genetic link is a theory that just as characteristics such as height, eye colour and hair colour are passed on genetically through generations, so memories and experiences may also be passed on through genetic material in cells. This could explain some fragments of past life memories. 

This was not in the notes if I remember correctly, but I had read about it somewhere else and found websites with the information. Hope this helps and here's a link:

the question is: Examine the content of the statements made by Shirley Mclaine. What explanation can you give for what she saw and felt when she had her hand thrust into a patient's abdomen?

Hi, I took the view that the question was asking whether you think that what she describes is a result of real feelings or just a sort of psychological episode, where the atmosphere, situation and setting combined to replicate the feelings but only in here mind. Below is the answer that I gave:

 Shirley Maclaine was attending  a psychic surgery operation being performed by Alex Orbito, when he gave her the opportunity to experience what performing psychic surgery was like, by plunging her hand into the patient's abdomen. She claimed that she felt absolutely nothing physical, instead, the feeling had a dream-like quality like she had plunged her hand into a warm mist. Whether her hand was actually inside the patient's body or not in unknown, but it was apparently being controlled by Orbito. Contact between the hand of one person and the abdomen of another,  would give a feeling of warmth whatever the circumstances. We are not told about the forum for this operation, nor how much theatricality formed part of the proceedings.  Maclaine also presumably believed that her hand had entered the abdomen of the patient and obviously believed totally in the process. Perhaps her expectation of what that would feel like formed part of what she described.

In my grading sheet, I got the comment below for this answer:

Question 5 Passed. Comment: A good description provided in your answer Richard.

I hope you can use some of this to help form your answer.

All the best with it
Richard
