It's not just genetics, It's nurture and nature. Some award winning stallions breed three or four hundred times. None of their progeny win any medals. It's not just genes. It's soul and what's in the nurture and care demanded to uproot these offspring into winning gold medalists. Even then: you can have a horse that has won every medal in the world breed with a sufficient female and breed no consequence near a medal.
Why is this? Is it nurture, or is it something in the soul, formed at the first dichotomy of cell division that surpasses any other type of destiny that enables that horse to triumph over all obstacles?
At what point, if a soul exists, does that soul become manifest? Is it at conception? Or further along the lines of embryonic development? Is it during the fetal stages. Is it at birth as the baby reaches for the light like a dying elderly?
Soul. It differs one greater than any DNA testing could ever differ one. Just at what point does our soul exist? Furthermore, where does it go after our death?

I think the same genetic sequence found in a bacteriophage or phage,with the exactly the same DNA sequence found in a viral phage or an E. Coli or even a human cellular body have distinct personalities. Even though they might be the exact precise DNA sequence, they were bred in different environments. It's like a banana growing in Hawaii verses a banana growing in Alaska. They might have the exact same DNA sequence but their volatility to alternate pathways of inheritance will vary due to the extraparametal differences. Therefore, an exact DNA of a banana from Hawaii and an exact DNA sample from a banana attempted to grow in Alaska will vary upon its genetic constituents.
