the memories contained in a single cell certainly doesn't have a
scientific basis. There was some speculation about rna-memory
transfer (based on statiticly invalid samples) from planarians fed other
planarians who had learned to do t-mazes did the t-maes faster than other

Larry Niven made alot out of this memory-rna transfer schtick in his
stories, but AFAIK, its a scientific dead end.
