Could an ancient virus be responsible for human consciousness? Scientists claim our ability to have thoughts may have evolved from alien genetic code over the past half billion years



An ancient virus that injected humans with 'alien genetic code' gave our ancestors the capacity for higher reasoning, new research suggests. 
Human consciousness may be the result of a string of instructions making its way into our genome through an infection in the early days of four-legged species, experts say 
The information contained within the viral cells became part of our genetic makeup, where it evolved into the Arc gene over the past half billion years.
