Could it not be the memory of the synapses correlating to memorized reflexes? I don't see how this proves that DNA has passed a memory on.

I'd critique your thoughts on human nature, more being in line with manipulating one's invironment, to how a human sees fit, rather then sustaining its current state.

Good/bad,/evil/devine, subjective influence, a human is said to be good if others like their actions, not if the actions were in line with common examples of humanistic values. A terrorist is good to his group, one wouldn't suggest that they are acting on the accord to promote human nature, rather their group of humanity, that shares their same beliefs. Likewise with any group, group warfare is a dominant part of our civilization, and it's based on distinct interpretation of our notions of what is good and what is bad.

I like your theory on the meaning of life... but we must define what is good beyond a doubt, or else it holds no meaning, as good is but a concept with gigantic implication in terms of how subjective the notion of "good" is. (Don't know about that DNA bit though)

Just my $0.02
