In genetic sciences, it is understood that worlds have 44 chromosomes ( 22 braces ) , plus 2 “sex ” chromosomes that determine gender. That is scientific fact. Here ‘s where it gets slippery. Suppose one has more or less than 44? Indeed, it can go on ; some familial upsets are caused by this. But what affect could it hold non merely on the human organic structure, but on the human consciousness? From the metaphysicist himself, Drunvalo Melchizadek:
There are three wholly different sorts of worlds on the Earth, intending that they perceive the One world in three different ways, interpreted otherwise. The first sort of homo has a chromosome composing of 42+2. They comprise a integrity consciousness that does non see anything outside themselves as being separate from themselves.
To them, there is merely one energy – one life, one existence that moves everyplace. Anything go oning anyplace is within them, every bit good. They are similar cells in the organic structure. They are all connected to a individual consciousness that moves through all of them. These are the Aborigines in Australia. There might be a few African folks left like this. Then, there is our degree, consisting 44+2 chromosomes. We are a disharmonic degree of consciousness that is used as a steppingstone from the 42+2 degree to the following degree, 46+2. We are unsafe to both ourselves and nature, but we are necessarya.These two extra chromosomes change everything ( Melchizedek ) .
In short, those missing a brace of chromosomes ( compared to normal worlds ) perceive all world and being as one. This falls into line rather good with the religious beliefs of the Aborigines in peculiar ( nevertheless, it must be pointed out that no group of people today presently possess the needed 42 chromosomes ) . In metaphor, world is one elephantine land mass with no divisions, no persons.
Those with the 44 chromosomes ( in short, us ) , are unstable. Our degree of development is merely a edifice block to 46. We have single lives, but now fail to of all time come together. In kernel, each world is a wholly stray island from one another. Building from this, it could be reasoned that our hurting, agony, ignorance, apathy and general bad qualities stem from our chromosomal instability. Therefore, the lone manner to truly rid ourselves of these is by traveling on.
Finally, to 46 ; the following measure in human development. Harmonizing to Melchizadek ‘s theories, it is at this point that we come together as single to do one, each separate, but incorporate. In his words once more:
The chief alteration will be a displacement to the “unity consciousness ” . Every cell in your organic structure has its ain consciousness and memory. You, the higher being that occupies your organic structure, make the 1000000s of different consciousnesses in your organic structure work together as one being. How does this relate to this [ new development ] ? Think of yourself as a cell and the grid as the higher being. We will still hold single consciousness, but will be united in the signifier of a higher being in order to work as one entity ( Melchizedek).
In the position of the Christian faith, it could be viewed as a measure towards going more God or Christ like ; single pieces doing up a whole, non far from the “Body of Christ ” belief. As “ all-in-one, ” we would accomplish cosmopolitan understanding. There would be no hurting, no agony, nor ignorance or apathy. To pull another analogue, it would be rather similar to the Kingdom of God or Heaven.
Being said, how do we travel from 44 to 46? In more general footings, possibly it is simpler to inquire how we can travel from where we are as imperfect worlds to something beyond, something greater, the following measure. Here ‘s where the wordss of “Forty-Six & A ; 2 ” and elements of Jungian psychological science come into drama.
At the bosom of Maynard ‘s “Forty-Six & A ; 2 ” lies the construct of “Change is coming through my shadow. ” In Jungian psychological science, the head is broken down into many parts, including the anima/animus, the self-importance and the shadow.
In males, the anima is a group of feminine traits suppressed deep into the subconscious. Similarly, the animosity is the group of masculine traits suppressed in the subconscious of females. Though non consciously present, the anima and animosity affect our behaviour in powerful ways. Normally, we seek out or project those traits out onto other of the opposite sex. This accounts for the feeling of “falling in love at first sight. ” Though we may barely cognize the individual, our subconscious knows what they represent. As the antonym of the witting ego, the anima/animus can move as a usher to our ain subconscious. They are frequently expressed as the steering female ( if you ‘re male ) or male ( if you ‘re female ) figures in our dreams. In short, our unconscious self-importances ( the anima/animus ) , are traits we desire in the opposite sex we ourselves suppress.
Conversely, the self-importance is our witting head, our sense of personal ego. This sense of personal individuality is purchased, nevertheless, at the disbursal of certain inclinations that are rejected as ‘not-self ‘ . These rejected traits come together as a sort of unconscious ‘counter-ego, ‘ termed the shadow.
Unaccountable feelings of irritation, anxiety or even anger can be a consequence of being in contact with person who possesses elements of our pent-up egos. In dreams, out shadow may take a physical signifier, frequently as an antagonist of the same gender. Of all the elements that make up our mind, the shadow has the possible to be both the most unsafe and the most critical to our personal developments. It represents everything we most fear and despise, but besides represents everything we must get the hang to travel frontward.
Tool has ne’er been, nor tried to be, a set easy understood from the surface. Their vocal wordss, phase shows and even album graphics all reflect this. The screen to the album Aenima, from which the vocal “Forty-Six & A ; 2 ” is taken, even follows some of the subjects from the aforementioned vocal. At first glimpse all one notices is the explosion of white visible radiation at the centre. Closer review reveals a series of out of focus eyes pealing the visible radiation. In typical Tool manner, they ‘ve said precisely what they ‘ve wanted to state without looking to hold said anything coherent at all. Think outside the box ( literally ) .
Certain, we can all see or understand out personal shadows to some grade ( hence the shadowy, out of focus eyes ) . What lays beyond them, though, no one genuinely understands. It ‘s a disclosure so blindingly bright there ‘s no seeing through it, nor any turning back. Those willing to believe for themselves ( a slogan of soft for the set ) , will see the album screen, open the Cadmium and learn things they may ne’er had known earlier. With fortune, they ‘ll ne’er be rather the same for it.
Our shadows are simple, about primal. Merely by looking within, to “listen to my musculus memory ” and reflect on what makes us ” us ” can we happen our manner through to the other side. By “picking strikebreaker ” and metaphorically uncovering old wounds we can face what we antecedently rejected and avoided. We can step ” into the shadow ” and happen new understanding on the other side.
