Suppose humanity had the ability to access the genetic memories of their maternal line. The lives of ancestors on their mothers side could be open to them with a certain amount of training. The effect would be similar to the animus from assassin's creed, except it would be an innate trait that everyone would be born with. Some would be more skilled in this ability than others. The further back the ancestor, the more difficult it would be to access. The mainstream religion that developed has a strong emphasis on honoring one''s ancestors and an adherence to social traidition. How can this hypothetical society develop without devolving into cultural and technological stagnation?
