I think I'm beginning to see where you're headed, but I'm still a more
than a little unclear.

Are you saying that there is a /relationship/ between the
history/background of a behavior and the cells which make up the
individual who does the behavior? If that is right (and stop me right
here if it isn't), is this relationship or association a physical one or a
mental link we can recognize between the two physically (or maybe,
objectively) disparate *processes*?
