I mean it in that sense. Not that we are exactly our ancestors. I meant it in the same way Scot meant it, that we cannot escape our ancestry.

I have heard this expression before but didn't give it any thought at the time. Now that you say it I'm not sure what you mean by that. What would escaping one's ancestry mean?
