‘Those factors relating to former lives’,’information from former lives’ are, as I see, what Lal is refering to, in Dhamma terminology, as ‘sansaric gathi’, or, embedded in the sansaric gathi.

So then, a new-born’s character will be overwhelmingly influenced by its own gathi , as well as by its own free will later on in life, and to a lesser degree by the gathi of its parents(lodged in their genetic codes).

Do I have this right?

…sorry Lal, your last post had not yet appeared when I started typing.
