Meta-Genetics and Dragon Heritage
META-GENETICS: The Metaphysics
“Meta-genetics” transcends genetic science, touching on spirituality, metaphysics, and the hereditary nature of Jungian archetypes. The foundations of meta-genetics lie in intuitive insights as old as the Dragon people, however, this is not an ethnic philosophy, but an emergent science. Genetic bonds are psychic and spiritual, rooted in “knowing”, in gnosis. Genetic kinship is a time-transcending unity, unbound by our narrow perceptions of the past, present, and future. Synchromysticism means niticing coincidences, synchronicities, connections, esoterica, symbolism and possible hidden agendas in all aspects of reality. There is an art to realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance. The outer reveals the inner and vice versa; as above, so below.
Living by synchronicity — paradoxical but seemingly meaningful coincidences — isn’t just about getting messages or reading ‘signs’. It is about immersion in the flow state, being at one with the cosmos. It is about nurturing the poetic consciousness that allows us to taste and touch what rhymes and resonates in the world we inhabit. Through opening ourselves we learn how the world-behind-the-world reveals itself by fluttering the veils of our consensual reality. We learn how to live with one foot rooted in the inner and outer world.
Carl Jung had a concept of the Collective Unconscious: “In addition to our immediate personal consciousness, (which we believe to be the only empirical psyche), there exists a second “inherited” psychic system of a collective, universal, and impersonal nature which is identical in all individuals. It consists of pre-existent forms, the archetypes, which can only become conscious secondarily and which give definite form to certain psychic contents.” He delivered lectures at the Tavistock Clinic on “The Concept of the Collective Unconscious” in 1935. In 1937, he lectured at Yale on “Psychology and Religion.” Jung called the psyche the soul source of human experience.
There are spiritual and metaphysical implications to heredity, extending back through the whole history of life. DNA itself carries ancestral memories, the collective unconscious, or the “phylogenetic unconscious” (Grof). Meta-genetic principles also apply to animals, plants, other organic kingdoms, and on down into the quantum and subquantal roots of matter. When we let go of our ego orientation in hypnosis, trance, meditation, vision quest, or consciousness journeys, we can experience identifications from any era and scale of evolution. Isolation, fatigue, hunger, and rhythmic sound are re-discovered as psychic drivers by different generations and cultures.
Altered states may be pleasurable, meaningful, and healing. They are likely to be actively sought in every age and methods of inducing them remembered and transmitted across generations. Collective psyche is inherited, including archaic modes of functioning and residues of animal ancestry, which also reiterate in embryogenesis. The primordial image is a psychic expression of the inherited (ever-recurring) potential of the soul for experience that is psychophysically determined. Consciousness is not the whole of the person – all the unconscious embodied circuitry is also “us”, and the decisions made by our unconscious circuitry are also “our” decisions. Unconscious change precedes conscious insight.
Evolution appears in our psychic nature. Stanislav Grof reports that people who had phylogenetic meta-memory experiences or identification with existing life forms not only found them unusually authentic and convincing, but often acquired in the process extraordinary insights concerning animal psychology, ethology, specific habits, or unusual reproductive cycles. In some instances, this was accompanied by archaic muscular innervations not characteristic for humans, or even such complex behaviors as enactment of a courtship dance.
