Session 18 - Incarnations

×

Genetic data pass on from generation to generation. So far, we've been discovering only a material part of the data, but there are also emotional and intellectual data there, which is a perception of the world that prevailed in the previous generation and has been passed on to the next. Babies born in this generation are offshoots of the previous one. They contain all the information about what the generations before them experienced. This is how human evolution unfolds through the chain of generations. As we convey technology, science, and everything we acquire in material possessions from generation to generation, we also convey our inner developments, sensations, and perceptions from generation to generation.


Our babies are born with a perception that has been pre-adapted to their generation, and if we could have a child be born today with the perception of 10 generations ago, we would see how different he is from today's babies. He has a different potential for development, a different capability.


You might call it "incarnations" because a person "carries" into this life data acquired in the previous life. What is the previous life? It is the life of the previous generation, a life that has been given to the newborn baby. In the previous life, that baby was also a person with intellect, emotions, and a body, and it is someone who lived a hundred years ago, with intellect and emotions. This same cycle of generational transference holds true for all of humanity. It doesn't matter if things happened to bring change while a person was alive or after they died; their children are already at a different degree of development.


One generation passes on to the next generation more than just a substance made of a drop of semen from the mother and father. Rather, it is a substance made of some internal message, a human one. This is what we call an "incarnation."

Topic

The development of the generations is embedded in the incarnation of the soul. Each incarnating soul contains genetic information and in addition, transfers affective and intelligent information, along with the perception of the world existing in the previous generation.

Main Points

  • Our process of learning throughout our development toward what is called "the new human being," is to practice what we learn incessantly, until all of the studying and practicing accumulates into one, single, "new human being."

References

"Rather than thinking in terms of multiple civilisations, we need to think in terms of one fluid human story with internal characteristics linked to the time and place in which it manifests itself."

Book - SUSTAINABLE HISTORY AND THE DIGNITY OF MAN

"Life, we learn, is information, transmitted in ever more intricate ways across the generations."

Article - The Origins of Life: From the Birth of Life to the Origin of Language

"The unfolding of the physical universe, the laws of nature, and evolution of life are generating the expanded perspective that will allow humanity to make the biggest prison break of all time—escaping the prison of ourselves."

Question 1:

In one of the first lessons of this unit, “A Field of Thought,” you were asked to watch a section from a BBC film on epigenetics. If you did not make time to watch this clip in its entirety previously, please do so now. If you have already viewed it, you may wish to view it again as a refresher, prior to carrying out this lesson's tasks. [link to video clip is here, if needed. Note: This clip begins at 5m46sec.]

Describe your overall impressions thus far, surrounding the topic of epigenetics?

Question 2a: How do you feel with regard to the last section of the transcript text that discusses in particular, the transference of information from generation to generation?

b. Please explain here why you feel this way. (If you selected “Other,” then please specify what you mean by “Other,” and then continue with writing the description of why you feel this way.)

Question 3: Can you identify anyone in your family or perhaps children that you know, who are “different?” (Meaning, they’re seemingly automatically adapted to modern life?) Can you give a concrete example of this?

Question 4: According to this lesson’s transcript text, what is the “incarnation of the soul?”
