Dragonfly E30 Lacrosse Shaft Review
Editor’s note: When we received the new Dragonfly lacrosse shafts from our partners at Epoch, we wanted to put them to the real test. In order to do so, we enrolled the help real lacrosse players throughout the United States. Boise State senior attackman Adam Smith had the opportunity to review Epoch’s iQ9 Dragonfly E30 shaft. We hope you find Adam’s review helpful!
When I received the new Epoch Lacrosse Gen.6 iQ9 Dragonfly E30 shaft, I was a little bit nervous about its durability at first. Knowing iQ9 was the most flexible option available from Epoch, I immediately thought to myself:
I’ve broken way too many shafts in my life to be playing with anything but a SC-TI, and I’m going to use a ‘soft’ flex shaft? Let’s see how long this thing lasts.
Although I was skeptical at first, I’ve used the Dragonfly shaft throughout eight competitive games in the MCLA so far and it’s really proved me wrong.
Product: Dragonfly E30 iQ9 shaft
The standard Gen. 6 shaft comes in a single color option: black with the Epoch green graphics and logo. Personally, I like the nice clean look of a solid black or silver shaft. The Epoch E30 was just solid enough of a black for me to throw my yellow Under Armor Charge on it and hit the practice field loudly.
The only reason I knock off one point from this score: I think a little less of the Epoch green or maybe a smaller graphic would make the Dragonfly look even more clean. That being said, I admit I’m a little bit boring when it comes to the lacrosse shafts I choose!
If you’re a player looking for a little more color in your game, Epoch also offers a handful of other Gen. 6 Dragonfly shaft color-ways, mostly with the C30 grip. Epoch’s Techno-color options are Blue, Yellow, and Red, and they also offer a limited edition Gold option that’s out now.
When I first pulled the shaft out of its packaging, the unique E30 grip immediately caught my eye. It was everything I could ever want in a shaft.
The E30 shape is similar to a grip that I have always enjoyed, but struggled to find on a lacrosse shaft strong enough to actually last more than a game.
The general feel of a Dragonfly is nice and finely-sanded. Combined with the E30 grip, I’m experiencing good, complete feel and control over the stick. Plus there’s not much need for additional tape (I don’t like to use a lot of tape).
Something else that I think should be mentioned here is the flex on the shaft. To me, the flex feels like it helps improve ball control – you can really tell where the ball is sitting at all times!
The Dragonfly is light.
I tend to disregard weight and lean more towards durability as a deciding factor when picking a shaft. I’ve always felt like the lighter the shaft, the bigger the risk of it breaking on me mid game.
But the Dragonfly feels different… there’s something about its strength.
For the past four years playing in the MCLA, and about six years before that, I have broken every lacrosse shaft I’ve ever owned except one. This Gen. 6 Dragonfly is now number two.
As I mentioned earlier, initially I didn’t expect this shaft to last long… especially considering the way I play.

I enjoy riding hard and throwing multiple, accurate checks to defenders’ sticks. Also, when I have the ball nothing is better than taking someone to the rack. Going hard to the cage, you usually have to blow through a couple checks, and I just can’t have my stick letting me down when I’m giving everything I’ve got.
To my surprise, the Epoch Dragonfly with iQ9 flex hasn’t given me any trouble or worries. And believe me, I have put this thing to the test!
The only reason I’ve scored Durability at a 9 out of 10 is because the outer layer of the shaft is beginning to chip a little bit already.
Compared to the soft flex version that I am currently playing with, I can only assume the latest Gen. 6 offering from Epoch would be even stronger at a harder flex. I think a Dragonfly with a lower iQ flex could make for a great indoor stick due to the added strength. I may have to pick one up if anything happens to my current indoor setup!
All-in-all, this is hand’s down the strongest composite shaft I have ever used.
The reason I give this shaft an 8 out of 10 is because its list price of $140 is at the very top of the market. Don’t get me wrong, it is one of the best shafts I have ever played with – I think it can be justified as worth the money to those who can afford it.
In my opinion, the E30 grip is one of the best grips a midfielder or play-any-position type of player can get. If you haven’t tried one out, try it. If you’re in the market for a high end lacrosse shaft, consider it.
Epoch lacrosse shafts are showing up in more and more players’ hands every year, and I think that trend is sure to continue.
This shaft has to be the first composite I have ever truly enjoyed using. It’s held up to the college lacrosse test by taking a beating at the MCLA Division I level. It has what I consider to be an amazing feel that supports great ball control. Plus, the iQ9 soft flex even gives you a little something extra on your wrist snap when ripping G’s.
The guys at Epoch really did a great job with this shaft. I would highly recommend it to anyone taking their game to the next level.
Epoch clearly produces high-quality, elite level products, and I encourage you to check out their website to learn more about the company.
Even if you aren’t looking to get a new shaft, see if you can try a buddy’s out for a little bit. It’s always worth knowing what’s out there!
Did I sell you on it yet? Good. Pick one up at Lacrosse.com today. You’ll thank me later!

Epoch Unveils Gen.6 Dragonfly Engineered to Kick Up Your Game
Minneapolis, Minn. — Epoch Lacrosse today unveiled its Gen.6 Dragonfly shafts, featuring revolutionary new designs and cutting edge technology. The Gen.6 Dragonfly introduces Epoch’s technology engineered to maintain the shape of the shaft and maximize the transference of energy to the head referred to as torque box. The Gen.6 Dragonfly shafts are available in multiple shapes and flex profiles, ranging from a mid flex (iQ5) to a soft flex (iQ9). All Gen.6 Dragonfly shafts also include Epoch’s exclusive Uniform Release Technology (Kick-Point). The Gen.6 Dragonfly is now available at authorized Epoch Lacrosse dealers nationwide. Visit www.EpochLacrosse.com to learn more the Gen.6 Dragonfly and see more detailed images.
“We pushed our engineers harder than ever before,” said James Miceli, Principal of Epoch Lacrosse. “The jump in technology from our Gen.5 to Gen.6 Dragonfly is the greatest increase in shaft technology we have ever released With the introduction of our new technology to layer carbon fiber called torque box, we continue to distance ourselves from conventional shaft technology and remain generations ahead of our competitors. ”
By understanding the dynamics and forces present in lacrosse, Epoch engineered torque box technology to maintain the continuity of the shaft’s geometry and maximize energy transfer to the head during a pass or shot.
Epoch developed Gen.6 featuring a non-uniform composite layup with variations along the length of the shaft. This technology creates a torque box and is designed to control and minimize ovalization or deformation of the shaft walls.
Why does Epoch care about ovalization and deformation?
Ovalization of the shaft walls can occur during a shot and is lost energy that does not get transferred to the shooting motion. By optimizing the layup, the shaft can more efficiently transfer energy, reducing this lost energy.
Most failures are a result of the shaft walls crushing or deforming under impact (same for alloy and composites). By optimizing the layup, Epoch can reduce this wall crushing/ovalization.
Where is the technology?
The key to the Epoch Dragonfly is their Advanced Carbon Layering (ACL). The Dragonfly consists of very thin composite layers arranged in many different orientations. The torque box is located deep in the layup and involves a few specific changes to critical layers. Layers can be as thin as a few sheets of paper so it’s nearly impossible to see with the naked eye.
The torque box is specifically centered on the key areas along the length of the shaft, just above the bottom hand and just below the top of the shaft. This places the technology in critical areas between and around the hands to create an optimal effect.
Epoch found that by increasing the strength through the center of the shaft, it could reduce the weight near the ends resulting in one of the lightest shafts on the market.
“The carbon fiber shaft category is one the fastest growing categories in the lacrosse equipment world and we are proud to have the top selling shaft at the premiere retailers across the country,” said Miceli. “It is really interesting to think that the next generation of lacrosse players will probably never play with an alloy shaft once they reach middle school or high school. Carbon fiber is quickly becoming the material of choice for players at all levels. We are very excited about the launch of our Gen.6 Dragonfly shafts and once again through the introduction of new technology we feel that we have reinvented the lacrosse shaft.”
“Kick” Your Game Up
Epoch Uniform Release technology is designed to maximize shaft performance by creating a natural kick-point or flex point just above your top hand, when shooting and passing.

Shadow: Victimization (Persecution)
Program Partner: 59th Gene Key

Amino Acid: Histidine
Physiology: Solar Plexus (Dorsal Ganglia)
Part 1 – Great Change
Part 2 – Process of Change
Part 3 – Manifestations
Welcome to a completely new system of cognition.64 Gene Keys – an original interpretation of the eternal and ancient, fundamental codes of the Universe. This brochure gives you a first glimpse into the lead-up to their official publication. In fact, the Gene Keys are the living alphabet of light that supports the entire universe. All natural languages and interpretations of the great Mystery arose from these primary codes of consciousness. Because of this, the Gene Keys do not belong to intellectual knowledge, but carry the resonating high-frequency transmission of your awakening to the highest reality.
The Gene Keys contain modern wisdom designed to effectively interact directly with 64 genetic codons in the nucleus of every cell in your body. In the broadest sense of the word, it is a living, speaking book whose sole purpose is to evoke a response on all levels of your being, from the subtle to the gross. In this regard, each Gene Key is divided into three “frequency ranges” called Shadow, Gift and Siddhi. As you go through and comprehend each layer of transmission, you begin to feel your own connection with this inner spectrum of light.Since the supreme language of the siddhi is beyond words, you are invited to perceive this knowledge with all your essence, and not in the usual way, as you read these words – exclusively through the mind. The more you devote yourself to reading, the deeper the transmission will penetrate inside you.
The Gene Keys form a completely new transformational language for deep contemplation, and the essence of this language is available thanks to the 55th Gene Key. This Key is the primary launcher of a new universal awakening. He is currently accelerating the preparation of a huge, global genetic mutation that will sweep through humanity in the coming years and give birth to a new species of human beings.I hope you enjoy reading this Gene Key and comprehending its insight and depth. For many, I expect it to be what it has become to me – a stunning glimmer of hope and wonder in the sheer beauty of our time.
PART 1 – THE GREAT CHANGE
Introduction to the 55th Gene Key
Did you know that you have a unique genetic sequence that determines your true nature? The purpose of this book, as the title suggests, is to discover this ultimate purpose hidden in your DNA.The Higher Self, the cosmic component of each of us and surpassing our mortal body, has been hidden from humanity for an eternity. Since it is in your body, right under your nose, most people never thought of looking for a lasting sense of peace and contentment in such an obvious place. Until now, the inner journey has been the lot of a select few – the brave adventurers and the brave pioneers of the inner plans. Therefore, our true divine seemed so far from the ordinary person, more concerned about the ability to survive and cope with life in the outside world.
All of this can change. As you walk through the frequency ranges of this book, you will begin to realize how beautiful and richly varied the journey of awakening can be. Many cultures in their myths have left us with clues that speak of the coming time of the Great Change. Humanity feels this change, because it is already taking place. During a relatively short evolutionary period, our world will be transformed into a world that most of us consider pure fantasy. You live in a very romantic time – when the prince kisses the Sleeping Beauty and she suddenly, completely wakes up.And with its awakening, the world becomes different. This Great Change is central to all of the statements in this book. As you read these words, your inner voice deemed it appropriate to remind you of this extraordinarily predicted phenomenon in order to trigger or support your own awakening process.
Therefore, allow yourself to be established on your path, which has led you to this very place and time when you are reading these lines. People follow in different directions in space and time, but at a certain time all our paths converge at one point, deep inside our body.There is a stretch of DNA whose sole purpose is to awaken you. The 55th Gene Key describes this area, moreover, it will allow you to comprehend and speed up the awakening process. The 55th Gene Key and its related transmission, the 22nd Gene Key, embody the most compelling and profound message in this book. The 55th describes the evolutionary force moving from matter to spirit, and the 22nd describes the involutionary force moving from spirit to matter. Together they contain the essence of the Great Change.
If you perceive the words and ideas of this Gene Key, allow them to penetrate into the deepest and most secluded corners of your being. There are dormant memory codes specifically designed to be activated and awakened by this transmission. As you allow it to penetrate you, you can notice the feelings, thoughts and impulses that arise during this. Even if you feel an inner opposition to this Gene Key, it should be recognized and respected. Awakening mysteriously chooses its timing and happens in its own sequence.Therefore, breathe deeply and please enjoy your flight into this wonderful world where romance becomes reality …
Welcome to the heart of the Gene Keys transmission!
Shadow – Victimization
The 55th Gene Key and the mythical journey from his Shadow to the siddhi are in fact the essence of all the Gene Keys work. In the human genetic matrix, not a single note sounds more harsh and modern than this odyssey through the boiling hell of the victim mentality into the clear and transparent air of freedom.This is the most long-awaited Gene Key, and we will soon receive its Gift on a collective level. The 55th Shadow has set the date for this work on the Gene Keys. This Shadow has become the leitmotif of humanity since the development of the neocortex endowed us with a self-reflective consciousness. This is the leitmotif of the victim.
The 55th Shadow of Victimization and its program partner, the 59th Shadow of Disgrace, at the cellular level lay a program in a person, under the influence of which he becomes the most terrible enemy to himself.There is a universal law, reflected in the proverb “As it comes around, so it will respond”, and it is this law that prevents the 55th Shadow from seeing. The essence of this universal law is expressed in the well-known biblical saying “As you sow, you will reap”. These familiar clichés are usually used to interpret the external manifestations of life, and not its deep energy. It often seems that people can only succeed at the expense of others. On the other hand, most of the simple and sincere people are subjected to terrible trials for inexplicable reasons.At first glance, the expression “What you sow, so you will reap” may seem devoid of material foundation, and therefore it is usually referred to as sayings of “folk wisdom”.
Due to the tendency to consider only the outer side of phenomena, the mass consciousness misses one of the deepest mysteries of life – on the energetic level, you really always reap what you sow. The “crops” simply take longer to germinate in the material world. The highest manifestation of the 59th Gene Key – the siddhi of Transparency states that in the end you cannot hide from yourself.Thus, the only key to the excellence of the 55th Shadow is your attitude. It doesn’t matter what happens to you. How you deal with it is important.
There are two types of relationship – you behave like a victim of circumstances, or take full responsibility for your position. Despite the apparent simplicity, there are several levels of difficulty in this. Since we’re examining the 55th Shadow, we’ll first look at what happens when you play the role of a victim of circumstance.The 55th Shadow is located deep in the dorsal ganglia of the solar plexus and directly affects emotions. At low frequency levels, people look for external causes of emotional ups and downs. We need to justify our emotional states. At the high end of the emotional spectrum, we believe that genuine joy is an effect rather than a cause. This deep conviction leads us to spend most of our lives looking for what we think brings joy – it can be great relationships, wealth, fame, a prominent place in life, even God.At the low end of the emotional spectrum, we play blame. We blame everything in the world, from the food we just eaten, to our partners and the government, for not feeling well.
The tendency to seek external causes of one’s condition is the greatest addiction on our planet. The belief that we are victims of material reality is based on it. This deepest belief establishes a constantly reinforced low frequency pattern. In other words, the priority of such an internal relationship lures the person into the network he has created.We are caught by our own desire. If we are depressed, then we strive to raise our mood, when we are happy, then we strive to keep the feeling of joy. Thus, the very sensations that we seek create an endless hunger that cannot be satisfied. Addiction is a search for satisfaction, not satisfaction as such. Hence the old story about seeking heaven: Even if you find heaven, you will hate it because you loved the hope of a wish being fulfilled, not the object of desire.
Here we find the secret of the frequency itself – it lies in the unconscious attitude to life.Since the real attitude remains unconscious, there is no technique for increasing the frequency. All that is required to achieve the “genetic speed of salvation” – the frequency that transfers you from the Shadow to the Gift – is understanding. Understanding dawns at the level of pure being – the understanding that you have become an unwitting victim of your own, unconscious patterned beliefs. When this understanding is manifested, you immediately begin to overcome the state of the Shadow. The great spiritual teacher Gurdjieff put it simply and beautifully: “In order for a person to escape from prison, he must first understand that he is in prison.”
As mentioned earlier, the 55th Shadow of Victimization has many dimensions. The network that keeps us at a low frequency uses various tricks. As they say, one of the main wiles of the devil is to make people seek God. The most tricky properties of the 55th Shadow relate to spirituality, and this has become especially significant nowadays. Spirituality itself can become the focus of sacrificial consciousness, as it easily imposes on you the idea that you can do something to free yourself from your Shadow and your emotional suffering.This concept leads to the biggest illusion – the illusion of another spiritual reality outside of our own sphere of sensations. If we look closely at this idea, we see the same pattern of pursuit of contentment. By creating an unattainable reality, you may spend your entire life trying to achieve it, but you may not experience it directly.
For many religious or spiritual people, this may be too bitter for the truth. True enlightenment is not at all what we really want.It is not in the least exciting, it is completely normal. Despite this, almost all spirituality is based on the pursuit of the extraordinary. High frequency levels do not necessarily lead you to a “spiritual” experience. In fact, they dispel the very illusion that there is such a thing as “spiritual” experience. In the modern culture of the new century, spiritual materialism has spread – that is, people now have a completely new drug called “the search for truth.”
It is important to understand that there is nothing wrong with all these phenomena.If you are drawn to seek something higher, it means that something pushes you from within and leads you somewhere. Following this impulse until its natural completion, you open your true path. For some people, search is a direct path to transcendence, but for others it is simply a distraction, further diverting from their true nature.
Through his own inferences, the 55th Shadow prevents the person seeking spirituality from following his promptings. It does this through identification with the form of teaching, or with the teacher, or with the path itself.Therefore, people walking the spiritual path can be divided into three main categories – those who are trapped in the structure of a particular teaching, those who are trapped in the magnetic power of the teacher, and those who are trapped in their own compulsive urge to become a spiritual traveler. All of these spiritual traps lie in wait for us on any path that ultimately leads to true freedom, but they all also disguise themselves as freedom itself. These are some of the subtlest levels of the Shadow of Victimization. As we explore the Gift and the siddhis of Freedom, we will see that true freedom has nothing to do with how we spend our time on the material plane.True freedom is not action. This kind of constantly expanding spaciousness spontaneously arises in a person when he realizes that he has become a victim of his own fundamental beliefs.
The end of the drama
One of the greatest temptations of humanity is the ideal of romantic love. In this context, this refers not only to the striving of human hearts for each other, but also to the ideal of romanticism in the broadest sense. This is the idea of life as a romance.The basis of romantic love is that it can never be truly satisfied, but must continually flow from catastrophic failures to ecstatic outbursts, creating an amazingly diverse symphony of human emotion and drama. All performing arts, from the highest creativity to the most run-of-the-mill television soap opera, is a metaphor within a metaphor for life itself. The 55th Shadow makes us all victims of the drama of life. We are entangled in an incredible web woven from the threads of our pain and our pleasure.We actually love and hate the network at the same time, but the main thing is that we are carried away by it, as we are carried away by any high drama.
In a world of dreams covered with a web, you are able to express your main aspirations. Under the net, you can fulfill your dream; you can fly, dance, cry, suffer, and above all, you can love. But love under the net is extremely limited and will never go beyond its own illusions. You can fall in love or stop loving, but you always remain a victim of your projections, expectations and inevitable disappointments.The web cast by the 55th Shadow orchestrates the rapid change in your breathing patterns as you rise and fall, obeying the melodies of life. Sometimes you sink into melancholy, all your life force seems to freeze, and your breathing becomes shallow. Other times, your mood suddenly skyrockets, your heart beats faster, and your breathing makes your chest heave. We believe that this is freedom. In between the extremes, the melody becomes a cadence; changes in tempo give way to phrases, notes, trills, pauses and every conceivable shade of feelings.We live inundated with endless waves of our own emotionality.
With regard to the 55th Shadow, the coming mutation will tear us out of dependence on the drama of life, and will be the beginning of the discovery of the true meaning of true freedom. In its depths, the 55th Shadow hides the desire of consciousness to return to unity, although this is most often expressed as a romantic longing for a beautiful soul mate. In the wonderful Indian myth “Indra’s Net”, the cosmos is seen as an endless net, in each knot of which there is a jewel.And in any of these stones absolutely everyone else is reflected. The 55th Shadow casts a veil over these jewels, thereby preventing humanity from feeling the consent of all entities. The upcoming shift in consciousness will finally allow us to break through the emotional web that has kept us victimized for so long. And then, for the first time, the truth of universal unity will sparkle before us, shimmering in the endless jewels of Indra.
Solar plexus – second brain
In the human body, the emotional matrix of the 55th Shadow is located in the solar plexus region.This large collection of nerve nodes is often referred to as the “second brain.” It acts independently of the brain, continuously controlling the work of blood vessels and internal organs. The tremendous tension of emotional states, especially at their extremes, greatly outweighs the subtle conscious cognitive processes taking place in the brain, to which we attach such great importance. Relatively little is known about the structure, mechanisms of action, and the true capabilities of the solar plexus neural circuit.But we know for sure that, despite any efforts, emotions have much more power over us than reason, and the world around us constantly confirms this.
Awakening of the solar plexus – a mystery of the eras
Most of the transmission of the 55th Gene Key concerns the future of our species during the Great Change, and therefore is a deeply prophetic work. However, one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle lies in our distant past.Generations of scholars of mythology, folklorists, archaeologists, mystics and historians have spoken of other races of human beings that lived before modern human history. Undoubtedly, all great myths and fairy tales contain coded information about the lost Golden Age, which was extinguished as a result of some extensive cataclysm, most likely a flood. In psychology, myths were seen as a metaphor for the archetypal, psychic desire of the soul to return to the safety of the mother’s womb.But what if these memories passed down from generation to generation are indeed hereditary memories stored in DNA? The 55th Gene Key can clarify a lot in this matter.
In many ancient cultures, various methods of displaying long periods and periods of time have been created, but one of the patterns remains true at the simplest and most mythical level – the ternary pattern. Every great work of art or allegorical story at its core carries this archetypal trinity time stream, outwardly or in meaning, dividing any narrative into three parts.Deep resonance with this fundamental pattern is inherent in the human soul. It always begins with some kind of fall into sin, followed by a journey of gains and trials, culminating in the final redemptive victory. Through the prism of this pattern, we see history, delineated in the form of three great eras, marked by four major leaps in consciousness.
Three epochs and stages of evolution
Three epochs and four turning points constitute a round of development of the entire planetary consciousness.In essence, this triple pattern describes three different stages of evolution, culminating in the fourth transcendental stage (the tetrahedral geometry of consciousness).
Theory of involution and the seven root races
According to the Gene Keys teaching, life is the interaction of two main forces – the course of evolution and the course of involution. The Western way of thinking focuses mainly on the objective, external world, rather than the internal, subjective reality.For this reason, we focus on the evolutionary stream, which has become the foundation of the modern scientific approach. However, many mystical and secret traditions around the world also viewed life from the other side, as a process of “involution”, where consciousness is gradually embodied deeper and deeper into form, thereby defining evolution. This view (known as emanationism) holds that at every stage of our planetary and personal development, a hidden goal is consistently achieved. To the extent that divine life “involutions”, so much human life, and indeed all earthly life, develops, and, breaking through to the higher frequencies of our consciousness, we get the opportunity to bring them into our material life.
The Great Pattern of the Three Ages includes another pattern based on seven intermediate stages known as the seven root races. In the theory of involution, the root races represent the most important stages of planetary development. Esoteric traditions often describe indigenous races literally, as the races of human beings antecedent to modern man. In the synthesis of the Gene Keys, they are considered as the disclosure of the true essence of the thin layers of the living spirit of Gaia, our Earth. In other words, from an involutionary perspective, all forms on our planet, from the densest stone to the most volatile gas, and, of course, our world itself, are composed of levels of consciousness.Thus, the first root races represent the subtlest forms of divine consciousness, lowering their frequency in order to obtain the possibility of physical manifestation (first epoch). At a certain point in the evolutionary history of our planet, consciousness penetrates so deeply into the material sphere that it completely forgets itself (second epoch). Then comes “Remembrance” and the mythical return to paradise, as consciousness transforms back into itself the entire material sphere, including all dimensions, thus completing its epic round of evolution (third epoch).
The seven root races and the corresponding planes of reality
The seven root races also directly relate to the seven planes of reality and the seven subtle bodies of the aura, thus giving us a description and duration of the involutionary stages of consciousness. (For more information on the seven sacred bodies and their corresponding planes, you can read the description of the 22nd Gene Key.)
1. First Root Race – Polar – Monadic Plane;
2.The second root race is the Hyperborean, Atmic plane;
3. The third root race – the Lemurian, buddhic plane;
4. Fourth Root Race – Atlantic, causal plane;
5. Fifth Root Race – Aryan, mental plane;
6. Sixth Root Race – Trivian Astral Plane
7. Seventh Root Race – Pangean Physical Plane
First Age – Preparing Gaia’s Garden
The first two Root Races, known as the Polar and Hyperborean, represent the crystallization of the form of the Earth itself in other words, they cover the time of the formation of our planet.Corresponding to the monadic body (the highest source of the divine), the polar root-race represents the divine Thought or Intention, just before descending into form and separating. The second root race, Hyperborean, is associated with the atmic body, or the body of light. It corresponds to the fusion of the minerals and elements of the sun on the planet. At the same time, the emergence of the Earth’s atmosphere and the gradual purification of its constituent gases occurs until our planet becomes suitable for life. It was during these first phases of development that the elements of planetary life were endowed with subtle forms of consciousness.In some traditions they are known as the angels of the elements and the devas of the mineral sphere.
Second Age – Rise and Fall
The Third Root Race, the Lemurian, represents the birth of animate life as it emerged from the water and populated the Earth. This was the paradise phase during which the Divine Essence manifested its inexhaustibility in the form of the diversity of the kingdoms of nature. The Lemurian consciousness of our planet was and still remains one, united entity located on the buddhic or ecstatic plane.It is also the level of many spheres of Devas – the manifestation of consciousness inherent in all living forms. It was during the Lemurian phase that the first humans were conceived and born.
The fourth Atlantean Root Race represents humanity before the fall. This race of human beings, sometimes called “Adam’s people”, remained only in vague memories. Modern people have been separated from their original source by a series of cataclysms, mythically called the “Fall.” Among the ancient peoples, the truth about this “fall” was passed down from generation to generation in stories and myths about the creation of the world, from where, in turn, it penetrated into modern culture and beliefs.The Atlantean root race, its culture and environment were completely erased, and the development was literally “rebooted” and started in a different direction. However, the Atlantean consciousness existed and continues to exist on the causal plane, or the level of archetypes – a quantum language beyond the logical mind. Unlike modern man, the original consciousness of the Atlanteans was concentrated in the solar plexus and did not feel disconnected from the source of all life, but was the heart and mind of Gaia herself.
Third Age, Fifth Race and Kali Yuga
Every great story must describe the fall. Indian Vedic tradition calls the stages of evolution “Yugas”, and the darkest of them is known as Kali Yuga, named for Kali, the Dark Goddess, Destroyer of Time. Our present Root Race, the Aryan, is already coming to the end of the Kali Yuga, the post-fall era. Aryan consciousness exists on the mental plane, and our main means of perception is the constantly developing brain.Ironically, our greatest gift, our ability to think, gives us the illusion that we are separate from each other and from the world around us. However, the essence of the third era is the long journey home. We have been looking for this path ever since we went astray. We are looking in science, we are looking in religion, but above all, we are looking for it in love.
The Great Change and the Sixth Race
The time of the Great Change will come right after us. As the Fifth Root Race prepares to surrender to the Sixth, the Trivian, it seems as though time itself is accelerating.The sixth race was predicted long ago by mystics and sages. Corresponding to the involution of the divine essence into the astral plane – the area of emotions and desires, the sixth race will transform our entire planet. Penetrating deeper and deeper into the form, divine consciousness reveals its true nature. The coming era will see the sublimation of human sexuality and desires into unconditional love. The origin of the sixth race will be the 55th Gene Key and its mutation in the center of the solar plexus, the seat of human emotions.The Trivian race will herald the awakening of this center and will allow people to once again feel the universal quantum field that unites all beings. This awakening will not be a rollback into the past Golden Age, but a new inclusion of the three lower planes – physical, astral and mental into their higher correspondences – causal, buddhic and atmic.
The seventh and last root race – Pangean, is really difficult to describe. She represents the fusion of all the kingdoms of Gaia into a single vibrating presence.Spirit and matter become one, and the divine monadic essence penetrates the physical plane with rays, allowing it to rise. This is the kingdom of heaven on earth.
End of the trilogy and return to paradise
Humanity and all planetary consciousness are now on the verge of the greatest turning point – on the eve of the last phase of the Trilogy and the final solution of the Mystery of the Ages. This rare event in the unfolding of consciousness will cause tremendous changes at all levels of life.The future seems so fantastic that we are not able to grasp it with our minds. As usually happens in fairy tales – the third time everything works out, the third time brings salvation. Indeed, all great myths, films, novels and dramas end in some kind of synthesis. Without this synthesis, our hearts feel some kind of incompleteness. Always at the very end, when we have almost given up hope of redemption, deliverance comes. Completing the triple pattern of trials and redemption, it unleashes an immense tidal wave of the happy ending that is so familiar and so longed for.We deeply yearn for liberation because it is imprinted in the genetic makeup of all life forms in our galaxy. And, since it is in our DNA, our inevitable destiny must be and will be to see the rebirth of Eden and live peacefully in the Garden of Eden “forever and ever.”
Repressive and reactive characters of the 55th Shadow
Repressive character – complaining
The 55th Shadow of Victimization has two main forms of expression. The repressive nature manifests itself in complaints.Complaining is an unconscious mental attitude in which a person makes himself the main victim of his own drama. Complaining externally or internally, we effectively deprive ourselves of strength every time. A repressive person tends to complain internally, choosing a pessimistic outlook on life, while a reactive character tends to find a specific external goal of the accusation. Falling on the frequency of a complaint, a person gets entangled in the net of life’s drama – “Maya”. The very energy of discontent enhances the illusion of the heaviness of life.Thus, constant complaints not only support themselves, but also lead to premature aging of the physical body. We get freedom only when we see the essence of this energy through unconscious patterns.
Reactive temperament – accusing
Another common form of the 55th Shadow is accusation. The reactive nature externalizes its discontent by blaming something or someone else. The arrows of our accusation seem to relieve us of responsibility for our position.In this sense, we “invest” our own ingredients in other people, thereby depriving ourselves of true strength and presence. Blame is an expression of externally projected anger, but that anger is not “pure.” Pure anger is the release of the primary energy of fear that can be caused by an external cause, even if it is not directed at that cause. By accusing someone, you immediately become a victim of your own drama. It is impossible to blame a person for his failures, and at the same time understand that he is just an actor in a play.Looking at life through the lens of importance releases the energy of blame. The reactive nature becomes true freedom when the arrows of accusation stop halfway to their target.
Butterfly effect: what happens if a person kills mosquitoes

Streets, houses, basements, Roofs and cemeteries in many countries in South America are being treated with insecticides in an attempt to stop the spread of the Zika virus
Tiny mosquitoes are the most dangerous animals on Earth.They spread diseases that kill a million people every year. Mosquito-borne Zika virus has been linked to the birth of abnormally high numbers of babies with microcephaly in South America. But is it worth killing all the mosquitoes?
Science knows about 3500 species of mosquitoes, but most of them do not bother humans at all – they feed on nectar.
And only females 6% of the whole variety of mosquito species drink human blood, which helps them to lay larvae.And only half of them carry parasites. But the impact of these 100 species on human life is truly devastating.
“Half of humanity is at risk of mosquito-borne disease,” says Francis Hawkes of the University of Greenwich’s Natural Resources Institute. “Mosquitoes bring untold suffering to humanity.”

Every year a million people die from diseases carried by mosquitoes
- Aedes aegypti – dengue fever and yellow fever.They appeared in Africa, but now they live in tropical and subtropical regions in other parts of the world.
- Aedes albopictus – Spreads various diseases including yellow fever, dengue fever and West Nile virus. Originated in Southeast Asia, now found in tropical and subtropical regions in other parts of the world.
- Anopheles gambiae – also known as the African malaria mosquito, is one of the most dangerous vectors of the disease.
More than a million people, mostly from poor countries, die each year from mosquito-borne diseases, including malaria, dengue and yellow fever.
Some mosquito species carry the Zika virus – previously thought to be its only effects were skin rashes and fever. However, scientists today believe that fever affects babies in the womb.In Brazil, the Zika virus has been linked to the birth of babies with microcephaly, a disease when babies are born with abnormally small heads.
In these countries, great efforts are being expended to teach people how to use nets, repellents and other methods to avoid being bitten. But isn’t it easier to simply destroy the entire species that carries this disease?
Wipe off the face of the Earth
Biologist Olivia Judson supports the “selective elimination” of 30 species of mosquitoes.According to her, this will save a million human lives, and the diversity of the mosquito population will decrease by only 1%.
“We must decide to destroy them completely,” Judson told the New York Times.

Doctor conducts a brain scan of a newborn in order to detect microcephaly disease
Scientists at Oxford University and the biotechnology company Oxitec have created a genetically modified male Aedes aegypti mosquito – a species that carries both Zika virus and fever dengue.These individuals carry a gene that prevents their offspring from developing. The second generation of these mosquitoes dies before they reach reproductive age and can carry the virus.
About 3 million of these modified mosquitoes were released off the Cayman Islands between 2009 and 2010. Oxitec reported a population decline of 96% compared to the surrounding areas. Using this method in one area in Brazil reduced the mosquito population by 92%.
Which one of us is a monster?
Well, are there any pitfalls in such destruction of mosquitoes? Phil Lunibos, an entomologist at the University of Florida, says killing mosquitoes “has unwanted side effects.”
He says that mosquitoes feeding on flower nectar play an important role in pollination. They are also food for birds and bats, and fish and frogs feed on their larvae. So killing mosquitoes can lead to changes in the food chain.
However, there are those who argue that the role of mosquitoes as pollinators and food can easily be taken over by other insects.
“We don’t stay on scorched earth every time a species disappears from the planet,” says biologist Olivia Judson.
But according to Lunibos, the fact that other insects will occupy the niche that mosquitoes have occupied is part of the problem. He warns that the extinct species can be replaced by another, “the same or even more dangerous from the point of view of human health.” And the new species can spread disease faster and over greater distances than mosquitoes today.
American scientist and writer David Kuammen believes that mosquitoes limit the destructive influence of humans on the surrounding nature.
“Mosquitoes make tropical rain forests unsuitable for human life,” he points out.
Meanwhile, rain forests, which are home to many plants and living creatures, are in serious danger precisely because of human activities.
“No one has done more in the last 10 thousand years to stop deforestation than mosquitoes,” says Kuammen.
Mosquito control is also a philosophical problem. There will also be those who say that the destruction of one type of living creature, dangerous to man, by man himself, is unacceptable.Since man himself bears the danger to the existence of many species.
“One of the arguments against it might be that it is morally wrong to destroy an entire species of living thing,” says Jonathan Pugh of the Center for Practical Ethics at Oxford University.
Yet there is no single argument for or against destruction that we can apply to all beings, Pugh emphasizes.
“When we eliminated the smallpox virus, we were justly celebrating victory. We must ask ourselves if these creatures have any valuable abilities? For example, is this creature endowed with feelings and can it feel pain? Scientists say that mosquitoes do not react to pain like humans do.Another question: do we have a good reason to get rid of these creatures? In the case of mosquitoes, these insects are the main vectors of many diseases, “says Jonathan Pugh.
This question is likely to remain hypothetical, no matter how serious human fear of Zika virus, malaria or dengue may be.
Despite the success in eradicating the mosquito population in small areas, many scientists believe that eliminating the entire species is an almost impossible task.
“No silver bullet,” says Francis Hawkes, “field trials of genetically modified mosquitoes are only partially successful, as they are only taking place in small areas.”
“Getting every female mosquito to reproduce from a modified male in large areas is a daunting task,” explains Hawkes.
New ways to control mosquitoes are sought all over the world.
Scientists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London are developing a sensor that can distinguish mosquito species by the rhythm of their wings during flight.They plan to equip villagers in Indonesia with these sensors so that they can distinguish between virus carriers. The sensors will also help prevent mosquito-borne disease outbreaks.
Scientists from the London School of Tropical Medicine are working on another project. They study how female mosquitoes react to various human body odors. Based on this data, they plan to create more effective repellents.
Another promising direction is the creation of genetically modified mosquitoes that will be resistant to parasites that carry viruses.In Australia, as part of a dengue eradication program, scientists are using natural bacteria that reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit the disease.
“This is the most realistic way to reduce the risk of mosquito-borne diseases,” says Lunibos.
Scientists in the United States have already created a genetically modified mosquito that is resistant to parasites that carry the malaria virus.
“We are playing an evolutionary game with mosquitoes,” says Hawkes. “I hope we win this game in the next 10 or 15 years.”
Buzz, therefore I exist | Colta.ru
Insect scientists sometimes publish their research in collaboration with physicists (because the biomechanics of a praying mantis or beetle flight is more of a physical problem) or climatologists. Philosophers – co-authors are rare, the more surprising each such case. In April in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences article about the origin of Insects Australian entomologist Andrew Barron; and Australian philosopher Colin Klein.
To begin with: where to look for consciousness in the human brain – not “consciousness in general”, but specifically the feeling that you are present in this world? Neuroscientists argue that this function is detached from all other thinking mechanics and is concentrated in a zone the size of a large cherry, which is called the “midbrain.” Its typical diameter is 18 millimeters, and it lies at the junction of the brain stem, an ancient and primitive structure, with large hemispheres.
This non-obvious knowledge is the result of neurosurgeons thinking about their mistakes.In the era of the popularity of lobotomy, right up to the 1950s, epileptic patients in a particularly severe form of the disease were excised with a scalpel up and down the most varied zones of the cerebral hemispheres, from the visual cortex to the motor, and from violent seizures they usually turned into quiet mentally retarded, but even during the operation remained conscious. But if the surgeon (during other operations) touched the midbrain with a scalpel, then the patient often fell into a coma right on the operating table.
In 2007, reviewing such clinical errors and targeted animal experiments, Swedish neurophysiologist Bjorn Merker published a review, Consciousness Without Cortex, concluding that the midbrain appears to be the home of consciousness, a universal control center.He is responsible for sleep and awakening, fainting and coma. And it is also capable of replacing incomparably more complex zones of the “big brain” in an autonomous mode. For example, the visual cortex: if it is destroyed in a cat, it stops responding to visual stimuli, but if you cut off the nerve fibers that connect the midbrain to the visual cortex, the cat will be able to chase a mouse that she cannot see. This phenomenon is called “blind eyesight” and is well described in humans – having been blinded as a result of brain injury, they retain the ability to dodge obstacles.
It turns out that the experience “I think, therefore I am” is the privilege of not only Descartes and people in general, but also toads and crocodiles — because they also have a midbrain. Cats think-therefore-exist, and toads too – and then who does not think? It is clear to biologists that there is still no consciousness on the lower floors of the evolutionary ladder. The nerve cells that allow the jellyfish to move in the direction of food do not make it a carrier of consciousness – just as the ability to travel from wall to wall does not make a robot vacuum cleaner a thinking creature.How, then, to draw the line between those who think and those who do not think?
The authors of the work in Proceedings put forward a hypothesis: consciousness did not emerge until half a billion years ago (for comparison: life on Earth has existed for about 4 billion years) along with the ability to fly. Insects were the first to fly into the air, which as a class are 480 million years old. They became winged another 100 million years later: prints of ancient dragonflies are found in coal older than 300 million years.
Cats think-therefore-exist, and toads too – and then who does not think?
Why is consciousness in flight? If for a jellyfish and a robot vacuum cleaner the world is a slow flow of stimuli (“obstacle, no obstacle, obstacle”), each of which causes a mechanical reaction, then in flight there are overwhelmingly many such stimuli. Therefore, it becomes convenient to create and store an internal model of the world, where you are somehow inscribed (“exist”), which sets the context for individual stimuli.
Insects are a dead-end branch of evolution in the sense that we (and other higher animals) did not come from them. Our brains do not in any way duplicate the anatomy of theirs. And still, in the brain of a bee, with its 960 thousand neurons, the authors found the same functional connections between the departments that support the human midbrain – which, in fact, makes the hypothesis plausible.
The good news is that with this in mind, mimicking the work of consciousness on a computer is not such a fantastic idea, because the basic model turns out to be much simpler than the human brain, where there are as many as 86 billion neurons.
Biologist Andrew Barron, the first author of the article, is one of the coordinators of the joint project of the British University of Sheffield and the Australian Macquarie University on modeling the brain of a bee. 960 thousand bee neurons (a hundred thousand times less than in humans) is about the same as the IBM neuroprocessor, specially designed in August 2014 to simulate the work of a million nerve cells. True, so far it is still not enough to create a virtual bee: the brain makes the brain not just the presence of nerve cells, but a set of connections between them – what biologists call a connectome.
Therefore, the difference between a neuroprocessor and a bee is like between an untreated block of marble, inside which all possible sculptures are hidden, and a specific sculpture that is to be cut out of it. But it is already clear that when the work on identifying the bee connectome is over, it will be where to test it in action. In 1986, the future Nobel laureate Sidney Brenner deciphered the connection of the round worm Caenorhabditis elegans – but the worm, which has 302 neurons and 7 thousand connections between them, is still far beyond the barrier that separates consciousness from unconsciousness …But if the bee has consciousness, then the processor with the programmed connection will also have consciousness in the literal sense of the word.

Introduction to the 55th Gene Key
Did you know that you have a unique genetic sequence within you that determines your true nature to unfold? The purpose of this book is stated in the title – to discover the higher purpose hidden in your DNA. The Higher Self, this cosmic part of each of us that transcends our mortal body, has remained hidden within humanity for millennia.Since it is inside the body, right under the nose, the bulk of humanity has never thought about looking into such an obvious place to find peace and fulfillment. Until now, the inner search has been the lot of a few daring travelers and daring pioneers. Because of this, while humans were fulfilling their urgent needs to survive and struggle with life outside, our true divinity was left by the side of the road.
Everything here is about changes. As you travel through the many layers of frequency throughout this book, you gain insight into how rich, beautiful, and varied the path to awakening is.In the myths of all cultures, keys are left that speak to us about the coming of the time of the Great Changes. Humanity is already feeling these changes, since they are already taking place. In a relatively short evolutionary period, the world in which we now live will be transformed in such a way that most of us would consider it pure fantasy. You live in a time filled with deep romance – the moment when the prince kisses the Sleeping Beauty, and, suddenly awakening, she transforms the whole world. Great Change is the red thread that runs through every sentence of this book.As you read these words, your inner leadership has either felt it necessary to remind you of this impending extraordinary event, or to support or provoke your own personal awakening process.
So allow yourself to be established on your own journey that has brought you here at this particular moment – right now as you read these lines. We humans follow different directions in space and time, and each of our paths at a certain moment must lead to this single point within the body.There is a place within your DNA whose sole purpose is to trigger the awakening process. The 55th Gene Key describes this place, and moreover, it allows contemplation and acceleration of the awakening process. The 55th Gene Key, with its confidant, the 22nd Gene Key, embodies the most powerful and profound message of this book. The 55th Key describes an evolutionary force moving from matter to spirit, and the 22nd – an involutionary force moving from spirit to matter. Together, these two Gene Keys define the quintessence of Great Change.
Listening to the words and ideas expressed in the description of this Gene Key, allow them to penetrate into the depths of your being. Inside you are dormant memory codes that are special | but created to be activated and awakened through this message. As you receive this message, you may want to track your feelings, thoughts, and inner impulses. Even if you feel resistance to these Gene Keys, it should also be respected and allowed to be. Awakening is a process with its own mystical timing and a certain sequence.So I invite you to take a deep breath and … enjoy your flight; to a wonderful world where romance becomes reality …
Welcome to the heart of the entire Gene Keys message!
The 55th Gene Key and its mythical journey from shadow to siddhi are indeed at the heart of all this work on the 64 Gene Keys. There is no note that is more appropriate or adequate to modernity, sounding inside the integral genetic matrix, than this odyssey through the seething underworld of the victim’s mentality towards the clean and fresh air of freedom.Of all the Gene Keys, this is the one that we humans yearn for the most, and it contains the gift that we will soon receive on a collective level. The main reason for the relevance of this work on the 64 Gene Keys is here within the 55th Shadow. Humanity has carried this theme ever since the development of our neocortex has provided us with the possibilities of self-reflective consciousness. This is the subject of the victim.
The 55th Shadow of Persecution and its program partner, the 59th Shadow of Dishonesty, at the cellular level carry one unique program for all people – everyone must become their own worst enemy.There is a universal law, reflected in the popular proverb “as it comes around, so it will respond,” and this is the law to which the 55th Shadow turns a blind eye. The essence of this universal law is also expressed by the well-known biblical principle “you reap as you sow”. These common truths are usually interpreted superficially and are not associated with deep energy. It often turns out that many successful people in life, in fact, achieve success at the expense of others. Likewise, the lives of the most innocent and kindhearted people can be filled with bitter trials that seem to have no explanation.Therefore, this expression – “you reap what you sow” – looks not very reasonable and is reduced to the sphere of not very practical folk wisdom.
In this tendency to see only the surface, the mass consciousness of mankind overlooks one of the deepest secrets of life – on the energetic level, you always reap what you sow. It just takes time for it to manifest in the material dimension. The highest expression of the 59th Siddhi is the quality of Transparency and as the Transparency suggests, in the end you cannot hide from yourself.In this regard, the key to the 55th Shadow and its overcoming depends on only one factor – your attitude. It’s not about what happens to you. The bottom line is how you feel about it.
There are only two dimensions in approaching something – either you behave like a victim of the circumstances, or you are fully responsible for the situation. While this sounds simple enough, there are several complexities in the path to simplicity. As we explore the 55th Shadow, let’s first take a look at what happens when you play the role of a victim of circumstance.The 55th Shadow lies deep in the spinal cord of the solar plexus and is associated with emotions. At low frequency levels, when emotional ups and downs are experienced, people look outward. We have a need to look for the reasons for our emotional states. At the top of the emotional spectrum, we believe that true enjoyment is more of an effect than a cause. Because of this deeply rooted belief, we spend most of our lives chasing what we think is enjoyable – perfect relationships, money, fame, the perfect place to live, and even God.At the bottom of the emotional spectrum, we plunge into the blame game. We blame everything from bad food to colleagues and government work.
This human tendency to seek external excuses for our moods is the strongest addiction on our planet. It is rooted in the underlying belief that we are all victims of our material reality. This conviction lays down a low frequency pattern that reinforces itself more and more.In other words, with this inner attitude towards life, we are caught in our own net, where our own ambition is the bait. When we are depressed, we strive upward, and when we are upward, we try to grasp this state more tightly. Therefore, the very feelings we seek create an endless hunger for realization that cannot be satisfied. Dependency is about finding an implementation, but not the implementation itself. Hence this old wisdom about paradise – if you ever find it, you will hate it, because you love only the hope of finding it, but not the state itself.
Here we discover the secret of the frequency itself – it is rooted in our unconscious attitude to life. Since your present attitude remains unconscious, there is actually no technique for raising this frequency. All it takes to achieve critical speed – the frequency that pushes you out of the shadow state to the gift – is understanding. Understanding should blossom within you at the level of your being. It is understanding that you have become an unwitting victim of your own unconscious patterns.When understanding arises, you immediately begin to overcome the shadow state. The great spiritual teacher Gurdjieff said about this simply and beautifully: “To escape from prison, first you need to realize that you are in prison.”
As previously mentioned, there are many dimensions of the 55th Shadow of Pursuit. The net that holds us at a low frequency has many subtle bends and pockets. As the saying goes, one of the devil’s most impressive tricks is to force people to seek God.The trickiest aspects of the 55th Shadow relate to spirituality, and this is of particular importance in the current era of history. Spirituality itself can be a major trick for victim consciousness, because it can easily instill in you the possibility of liberation from emotional distress. This concept has led to the grandeur of illusion – the illusion of a different spiritual reality that transcends the realm of our experience. If we look closely at this concept, we see the same pattern in the pursuit of implementation.If you create an unattainable reality, you can spend your whole life on it without any possibility of directly living and experiencing it.
For many religious and spiritual people, this truth can be difficult to digest. True enlightenment is not at all what we really desire. This is the least exciting and extremely mundane. In contrast, much of spirituality is based on the pursuit of the extraordinary. Higher levels of frequencies do not necessarily lead you to spiritual experiences.In fact, the higher frequencies completely obliterate the very illusion that there is such a thing as spiritual experience. Modern New Age culture is rife with spiritual materialism. In other words, now people have a completely new drug called the pursuit of truth.
It is important to understand that there is nothing wrong with all of this. If you are drawn into the search for something high, then there is something in you that moves you. If you follow this to the point of natural completion, your true path will be revealed at the end.For some people, the search is a direct path to transcendence, but for others it is simply distracting, taking them further and further from their true nature.
The 55th Shadow gets in the way of spiritual seekers, not allowing them to follow their aspirations to their natural completion. This is due to the fact that it encourages identification with either the form of teaching, or with the teacher, or with the path itself. Therefore, we see three main categories of people on the spiritual path: those who are trapped in the system, those who are mesmerized by the magnetic power of the teacher, or those who are dependent on their own need to remain a spiritual tourist.All three of these spiritual traps are natural stages of any path that ultimately leads to true freedom, despite the fact that all three of these traps disguise themselves as freedom. There are some subtle levels of Shadow of Pursuit. As we will see later, as we consider the Gift and the Siddhi of Freedom, true freedom has nothing to do with how we use our time. True freedom is not a consequence. It is a kind of constantly expanding space that arises within you as you understand the depth of your bondage due to your own inner convictions.
Death of Drama
One of the greatest attractions of humanity is the ideal of romantic love. In this context, it does not so much refer to the longing of one human heart for another, but rather to the ideal of romantic relationships in a broader sense. This is the idea of a romantic life. The very essence of romantic love is that it can never truly be realized, but flows endlessly between catastrophic failures and ecstatic heights, creating a wonderful rich symphony of the emotions of human drama.All forms of performing arts, from sublime plays to everyday television soap operas, act as metaphors in the metaphor of life itself. The 55th Shadow makes us all victims of life’s drama. We are caught in incredibly intricate webs, woven from the threads of our pain on the one hand and pleasure on the other. Basically, we love and hate these networks at the same time, but what’s more, we are addicted to them as addictive as we adore all these bombastic dramas.
In the world of your dreams and within the network, your greatest thirst is quenched.There you can live according to your dream – you can soar, dance, weep, suffer, and above all, love. Yet your love within the web is deeply limited. This love that never leaves the framework of its own illusions. Online, you fall in love and “fall out of love”, somehow remaining a victim of your projections, expectations and inevitable disappointments. The network created by the 55th Shadow directs the rise and fall of your breathing patterns as you rise and fall in the melody of life.Sometimes you are drowning in melancholy, and it seems that all your life force stops, – your very breathing becomes thinner. At times, you are suddenly caught in a whirlwind, and you soar, and your heart beats faster and faster and the air fills your chest to the limit. This is what we believe freedom should be. In the transitions between extremes, melodies are replaced by rhythms; tempo shifts give way to phrases, notes, pauses and all kinds of feelings. We live in these waves and there is no end to our emotional process.
With regard to the 55th Shadow, the approaching mutation will set in motion the process of breaking our attachment to life’s drama and initiate an understanding of what true freedom means. At its core, the 55th Shadow conceals the desire of consciousness to return to its unity, although in everyday life this is more expressed in romantic longing for its ideal half. The Hindus have a wonderful myth known as the Indra Net, in which the cosmos is viewed as an endless grid with diamonds at each intersection of the threads.Within each individual diamond, all the others are perfectly reflected. The 55th Shadow throws a veil over these jewels, thereby trapping humanity and rendering it incapable of experiencing universal unity. With the transition to come, our awareness will finally be able to slip through the threads of the emotional web that has kept us victimized for so long. And then, for the first time, we will see a glimpse of the truth of our collective oneness shimmering in each of Indra’s countless diamonds.
Solar Plexus – Second Brain
The 55th Shadow Emotional Matrix is located in the solar plexus area. The abundant accumulation of neural nodes in this area has sometimes been considered a second brain. This brain operates independently of the brain, controlling the vascular and visceral functions of the body. The tremendous tension of our emotional states and especially their extreme manifestations leave far behind the light cognitive processes of their causes, which originate from our brain, and which we take with incredible seriousness.Relatively little is known about the detailed nature of the neural circuits within the solar plexus, its mechanics, and its true capabilities. We only know that, despite diligent efforts, our emotions dominate the mind, which continuously confirms the world around us.
A New Awakening of the Solar Plexus – A Mystery of Aeons
Much of the 55th Gene Key message concerns the future of our species during the Great Changes and is thus a deeply prophetic part of this book.However, one of the most important pieces of this puzzle lies in our distant past. Generations of mythologists, folklorists, archaeologists, mystics, and historians speak of a different race of human beings that lived before modern history we have documented. Indeed, all great human myths and fairy tales are filled with information about the lost golden age, the traces of which disappeared or were lost due to some kind of global cataclysm, flood or flood. In the eyes of psychologists, these myths have always looked like archetypal metaphors for the psychological desire to return to the safety of the mother’s womb.But what if it represents the reality of days gone by, stored inside our ancient piece of DNA? In this sense, the 55th Gene Key has something to tell.
Although many ancient cultures have developed methods for dating eras and time cycles, there is something that contains truth at the simplest and most mythical level – the Trinity pattern. Every great artwork or allegorical story at its core bears this threefold temporal archetype that divides any human narrative into three parts.Within the very fabric of the human psyche, there is a deep resonance with these fundamental patterns. There is always a kind of initial fall from “paradise”, a journey of challenges and revelations that follows, and a culmination in a final redemptive victory. When we try this plot on the global evolution of man, we see that our human history is depicted in the form of three great Aeons stretched in time and marked by four major leaps of consciousness.
Three Aeons and their evolutionary stages
Three aeons and their four turning points describe the evolutionary path of our common planetary consciousness.Basically, this threefold pattern describes three distinct evolutionary stages with four culminating points of transcendence (tetrahedral geometry of consciousness).
The theory of involution and the seven root races
According to the Gene Keys, life is an interaction between two primary forces – the streams of evolution and involution. How we are taught to think in the West determines our focus on the objective external world rather than on the subjective internal reality.For this reason, we are more inclined towards the evolutionary course, which has become the basis for the modern scientific approach. However, many mystical and esoteric traditions also view life from the other side – they see life in the form of an involutionary process, in which consciousness is gradually embodied deeper and deeper in the world of forms, thus moving our evolution. From this perspective (known as emanationism), at every stage of our planetary and individual evolution, there is a hidden purpose that consistently reveals itself.As the Divine life involutions, the life of man and the Earth evolves, and as our consciousness strives upward to the higher frequencies, we are able to draw them down to our lives on the material plane.
Within the grand pattern of the three aeons lies another pattern based on seven stages, which are known as the seven root races. In this theory of involution, each root race represents a major step in our planetary development. In esoteric traditions, the root races are often given the literal meaning of the races of humans that predate modern man.In the context of the synthesis of the Gene Keys, the root races are viewed as the thin layers of the living spirit of Gaia – the spirit of our land. In other words, from an involutionary perspective, all aspects of forms on our planet and, of course, in our Universe are perceived at levels with a gradation of consciousness from the densest minerals to the finest gases. Therefore, the earliest root races represent refined forms of Divine consciousness with a lower frequency for the possibility of physical manifestation (first aeon). At a certain moment in the evolutionary history of our planet, consciousness is so deeply absorbed into the material spheres that it completely forgets itself (second eon).Then comes the Remembrance and the mythological return to paradise, when consciousness transforms the material sphere, integrating all dimensions back into itself and thereby completing its evolutionary epic (third eon).
The Seven Root Races and their Corresponding Reality Plans
The seven root races are also directly connected with the seven planes of reality and the seven subtle auric bodies, which gives us both a plot and a time span for the involutionary stages of consciousness (you can read more information about the Seven Sacred Bodies and their corresponding planes in the description of 22- go of the Gene Key).
First Root Race – Polarians – Monadic Plane
Second Root Race – Hyperboreans – Atmic Plane
Third Root Race – Lemurians – Buddhic Plane
Fourth Root Race – Atlanteans – Causal Plane
Fifth Root Race – Aryans – Mental Plane
– Sixth Root Race Trivians – Astral Plane
Seventh Root Race – Pangeans – Physical Plane
First Aeon – Cultivating Gaia’s Garden
The first two Root Races, known as the Polarians and Hyperboreans, represent the crystallization of the form of the Earth itself – in other words, they span the time period in which our planet was formed.Corresponding to the Monadic body (the highest source of Divinity), the Paul Aryan Root Race personifies the Divine Idea or Will before it descends into form and experiences separation. The second root race – Hyperborean – refers to the Atmic body, or the body of light. This corresponds to the formation of our planet from the minerals and elements of the Sun. This phase includes the formation of the earth’s atmosphere and the gradual purification of elements and gases to a state in which our planet was able to support life.During these first phases of our evolution, the constituent elements of all planetary life were endowed with subtle forms of consciousness. In some traditions, they were known as the angels of the elements and the devas of the mineral kingdom.
Second Aeon – Rise and Fall
The third root race, known as the Lemurians, represents the birth of animate life that originated in water and inhabited the earth. This was the Paradise phase, during which the Divine Essence manifested its excessive abundance in the form of various natural kingdoms.The consciousness of the Lemurians of our planet was and remains a single entity on the Buddhic plane, known as the plane of ecstasy. It is also the plane of the varied spheres of the Devas, the manifestation of the consciousness contained in all living forms. It was during the Lemurian phase that the first humans were born.
The fourth Atlantean Root Race represents humanity before the fall. This race of human beings, sometimes called the Adamic race, is nothing more than a vague allusion to modern humans. We, the people of our time, have moved away from our true source after a series of cataclysms, which in our mythology are called the Fall.The truth of this Fall has been passed down from generation to generation by the cultures of our indigenous peoples in the stories and myths of creation, which in turn have become part of our modern cultures and beliefs. The Atlantean root race with their culture and way of life was wiped off the face of the earth, and evolution literally rebooted and started anew in a different direction. Nevertheless, the Atlantean consciousness existed and still exists on the causal plane, which is the plane of archetypes – a quantum language that lies beyond the logical mind.The true consciousness of the Atlanteans, unlike modern man, was concentrated in the solar plexus and did not feel separated from the source of all life. It was the very heart and mind of Gaia.
Third Eon – Fifth Race and Kali Yuga
Every great story must have a moment of collapse. In the Indian Vedic tradition, the evolutionary stages are called Yugas and the darkest stage of all known is the Kali Yuga, named after Kali, the Dark Goddess of Time and Change.Our present Root Race, the Aryan, is currently approaching the end of the Kali Yuga, the post-fall era. Aryan consciousness exists on the mental plane and our constantly evolving brain is our main instrument of awareness. Ironically, our greatest gift – the ability to think logically – feeds us with the illusion that we are separate from each other and from our environment. However, the history of the third aeon speaks of a long journey home. Whenever we go astray, we humans have always looked for a way home.Our search is conducted through science, through religion, but most of all through love.
Great Change and the Sixth Race
Now the time of Great Changes has come for us. While the Fifth Root Race was setting the stage for the sixth Trivian race, time seems to have accelerated itself. Mystics and sages have prophesied about the sixth race since ancient times. Corresponding to the involution of the Divine essence into the Astral plane – the sphere of emotions and desires – the sixth race will bring transformation to our entire planet.As the Divine Consciousness continues to descend deeper and deeper into form, it reveals its true nature. The coming era will show us the sublimation of human sexuality and desires into unconditional love. The sixth race will be launched through the 55th Gene Key and its mutation within the solar plexus center, the cradle of human emotion. The Trivian race heralds the awakening of this center and will allow people to experience once again the universal quantum field that binds all life. Awakening is not a retrograde movement in the past golden age, but a new integration of the three lower planes – physical, astral and mental into their higher equivalents – the causal, buddhic and atmic planes.The seventh or last Root Race of the Pangeans lies beyond words. She represents the integration of all the kingdoms of Gaia into a single vibrating presence. This is where spirit and matter become one, and where the Divine monadic essence shines through the physical plane, allowing it to ascend. This is the kingdom of heaven coming to Earth.
End of the trilogy and return to Eden
Humanity and our universal planetary consciousness today stands at the greatest boundary – the final phase of the Trilogy and before the final denouement of the Mystery of the Aeons.This is such a rare event in the opening of consciousness that it brings serious shifts at all levels of life. The future seems so fantastic that our minds are not able to expand enough to embrace this reality. As in our fairy tales, the third part is beautiful and always brings redemption. Indeed, the culmination of all our great myths, films, romances and dramas is associated with a certain form of synthesis. Without this synthesis, our hearts feel incomplete. As a rule, this happens at the very end, when there is no longer any hope of salvation.Liberation comes in the surging rhythm of the threefold pattern through trials and breakthroughs. This is so close to us – people have always liked the happy end. We crave it so much because it is sealed in the genetic makeup of all life forms in our galaxy. And since it is in our DNA, destiny must lead us to the rebirth of Eden and eternal life in the Garden of Eden.
The 55th Shadow of Pursuit has two main forms of expression.The repressed nature manifests itself as an eternal expression of discontent. It is this unconscious mindset that makes a person the main victim in his own drama. Each time a person complains mentally or to someone, a person simply deprives himself of strength. The repressed nature tends to be pessimistic about life and see himself as a victim all the time, while the reactionary nature is aimed at finding an external goal in order to bring his accusations on her. When someone falls into the frequency of the mournful state, he immediately falls into the net of life’s drama – maya.The energy of complaint reinforces the illusion that life is very difficult. By strengthening itself, mourning also contributes to the sustained wear and tear of our physical body. Freedom arises when we see the very essence of this energy through our deepest unconscious patterns.
Reactionary nature Accusing
Another common form of the 55th Shadow is accusation.The reactionary nature expresses its dissatisfaction through accusations of something or someone. When we “switch the arrows” to another, we disclaim responsibility for the situation. In this sense, we lose our true strength by investing our aspects in others. All accusations are expressions of outwardly projected anger, but in this case, this is not entirely true. Pure anger is the release of the primary energy of fear; anger that may be provoked by an external source, but not directed at the source itself.The moment someone blames another, he also becomes a victim of his own drama. It is impossible to blame the other for your fate and at the same time be aware of yourself in this play as an actor. The very vision of one’s own seriousness in life weakens the energy of accusations. For a reactionary nature, true freedom comes when the arrows of the accusation are caught in flight before they reach their target.
Spirit of the Age to Come
Contemplation of the 55th Gift inevitably leads you to reflect on the future of humanity and our planet.On the following pages, we will look at what is happening to humanity now and what will happen during the Great Changes. In reading the codes contained in the 64 Gene Keys, the details of the upcoming changes are not so important. Any consideration of details, at best, can be based on guesswork and be interpreted as just one of the points of view. Yet through deep resonance with the fundamental frequency underlying this work, it is possible to capture the spirit of the coming era. As you read the following pages, you can feel that the consequences of this mutation will affect all corners of life on our planet.
Another factor of the coming change that needs to be taken into account is the speed of its approach. According to evolutionary terms, this will happen overnight, although in our understanding it will happen gradually and almost imperceptibly. We are talking about a genetic mutation that will slowly begin to penetrate humanity. In other words, people of the old type will literally be washed out of our species. This means that very soon children will begin to be born among us, carrying the final mutation, and who, over time, will spread it to the entire gene pool.These children will be different from us. They will not emotionally interact with us at the victim level – they will become carriers of a high frequency that will transform their families over time.
Releasing the Code of Higher Consciousness
Over the past centuries, much has been written, expressed and studied in relation to the nature of higher consciousness. We are now entering an era in which more and more people will have direct access to truly experiencing higher consciousness. Eventually, what happens during the 21st century will spread collectively and bring closer a time that we can only dream of today.Until now, the awakening process has been understood and explained (with the exception of some special cases) only at the individual level. Teachers, sages and gurus shared their truths only for individuals. The emphasis has always been on how I can awaken!
Two main aspects of this issue are now rapidly approaching the end of their shelf life. The first aspect concerns the question of how. As we shall see, the 55th Gene Key will close this question. Secondly, the individual element of the I with the onset of changes in humanity will gradually be eliminated.We are entering the era of We. Only when we fully absorb the truth that humanity is one collective then the last joke will become clear to us, since we will again find ourselves a deep mystical collective Self.
An extensive and dynamic shift begins in the form of a genetic cellular mutation. It is triggered by the 55th Gene Key, which corresponds to the amino acid histidine. As you read these words, your own body is in the process of preparing for this mutation at a chemical level.The collective level is also undergoing these changes, and no person will be outside this process. At the highest level, the 55th Gene Key is the code that opens higher consciousness. There are many important prerequisites for this process, as well as a certain sequence for its deployment. By examining this Gene Key in detail, we will try to look at the various changes we are moving towards and how they will affect us individually and collectively.
Centering in Mindfulness
In the Spectrum of Consciousness – the linguistic matrix underlying the 64 Gene Keys – the 55th Gift is unique.If you look at the columns of words representing the frequencies of each gift and siddhi, you will notice that it is only in this Gene Key that the same word is used to denote both the gift and the siddhi – Freedom. This is the only such place on the spectrum of extraordinary importance. The 55th Gift is the core, based on which human awareness acquires new skills – the ability to travel through physical space. The development of this gift will change everything connected with the world as we know it.Once awareness moves in this direction, what we previously viewed as higher consciousness will become our normal state. Therefore, the word for siddhi and gift is the same. The Spectrum of Consciousness itself from this moment will open, and one by one the gifts will be freed from their shadows, merging with their highest potential of siddhi. As the energy of the shadow rises to the level of the gift, the energy of the siddhi, in turn, will descend to it. This is similar to how the gene gear of the wheel of fortune locks onto a completely new cog at the next turn.This prong is the 55th Gift. From this moment on, a new force enters the world with new laws and new consequences for all of us.
So far in our history, awareness has been limited to the individual human form. We experience awareness in the form of movements, feelings and thoughts. Without reaching higher states or siddhi consciousness, it is impossible to gain access to awareness outside of your body. However, in our history, such a consciousness has sometimes spontaneously blossomed in certain individuals, allowing us to get a taste of our future.In the state of siddhi consciousness, awareness serves as a connecting link between organisms – it is the interface between consciousness itself and the world of forms. The form is the skin, underneath is the fruit of awareness, and in it is the seed of consciousness. In simple terms, mindfulness is the key that unlocks the door between man and what we call God.
To understand the true nature of the impending awakening, one can look at the remarkable parallel in the life cycle of dragonflies.Dragonflies spend most of their “youth” under water. In their underwater stage of development, they are known as nymphs, and unlike most river insects, they do not need to surface for air. All their lives, nymphs spend under water in the role of fairly successful predators, feeding on almost everything, from leaves to small fish. During this stage of life, nymphs go through a series of molts – stages of maturation, where they shed their skins while still remaining larvae.This stage in the life of these insects can last for several years, and all this time they “have no idea” what future lies ahead for them. Meanwhile, a series of hidden mutations occur within them. And suddenly, one day, a gene dormant in the depths is activated, and the larva takes an action that is completely alien to it – it finds the stalk of the nearest plant and gets out of the water, for the first time in its life it finds itself in the air under direct sunlight.
As soon as the nymph has lost its protective underwater environment, sunlight begins its work, starting the process of its last molt.It is at this stage that pure magic happens when a more advanced being hidden within the nymph tears apart the outer shell. In just a few hours, four twisted wings appear, and a flexible body begins to unfold. The great metaphorical significance of this stage concerns the element of water. While the emerging dragonfly emerges from the water element and prepares for rebirth for a new life in the element of air, there is still water inside its body, which becomes the key to the transformation process.Through a hydraulic process, the water inside the nymph’s body presses on the wings and body, initiating the unfolding and opening of a new form. In other words, the dragonfly takes on its aerodynamic shape with the help of its past life environment. Thus, water becomes the engine of the mutation that turns the nymph into a dragonfly. As soon as all the water is consumed, the dragonfly straightens up completely, soars into the air and begins its new life.
The life cycle of dragonflies is perfect for a metaphor for the awakening of the 55th Gift and its Siddhi.The raw energy of your emotions becomes a mechanism for unlocking your future awareness. As soon as this awareness is born, your life will forever acquire immortality on a higher plane. This metaphor also shows us that we, as a species, must dive deeply into an emotional field, where we have to go through a series of mutations that we are unable to recognize. As long as we live in a world of emotions, we have only a vague hint of the future. Only when the 55th Shadow mutates completely will the collective awakening begin to fully unfold.
Early stages of the awakening sequence
At the end of this section, we will look at the specific timing and sequence of this awakening. Currently, using the dragonfly metaphor, we are in the stage of climbing a stem out of the water towards the sunlight. The stage of the genetic world drama is in full swing, and therefore this time can be deeply hectic. You may already have glimpses or premonitions of what lies ahead as your body and psyche become the battleground for this mutational process.In particular, if you carry the 55th Gift as your primary gifts, you may be subject to wild fluctuations in your normal rhythms, energy patterns, and emotions. This deep integration process, which will continue for some time, will gradually begin to gain stability.
The early stages of awakening (up to 2012) were the most volatile phase in this process. During this phase, emotional systems literally collapsed. The two Gene Keys have a strong connection with the 55th Gift – its programming partner, the 59th Gift of Intimacy, and the 39th Gift of Dynamism.They are also active in this awakening process. The 39th Gift and its Siddhi of Liberation will touch every emotional aspect of our nature. Here you can see the direct connection between these two higher states of Liberation and Freedom. The 39th Siddhi actually provokes the final stage of Freedom. Liberation is a dynamic process, while Freedom is a realized state. The 59th Siddhi of Transparency, which awakens simultaneously with the 55th Siddhi, is just as powerful.
In the process of awakening these siddhis, you can see a hidden sequence – we humans are forced to become transparent, like the wings of a dragonfly. The 59th Gift of Intimacy is the first step on this path. We must allow life to open our hearts through our relationships.
We already know that the 55th Gene Key is about romanticism, so the 55th Gift awakens through relationships. Upon awakening, a person no longer exists as a separate person. Mindfulness will function collectively.The first signs of this feeling of being loosened ™ will begin to show in your intimate relationship. From now on, the more you try to hide from others, the more suffering it will bring you. Every ulterior motive must manifest and collapse. The obsessive obsession of the mind with its separatism must also be destroyed. The era of selfishness is coming to an end. Many will resist this mutation, but it should be so. They are not part of what comes, and this is something to be respected.Through these people, the old energy will leave the world. There is no choice here – it’s all about the collective selection of favorable genetic material for the future of humanity.
Evaporation of sacrificial consciousness
As we have seen, the 55th Shadow is rooted in the idea of oneself as a victim and, in particular, a victim of emotions – it does not matter, your own or someone else. After the awakening of the 55th Gift, the concept of emotions belonging to someone will be a real absurdity. Emotions function at the frequency of a wave, and at the collective level there is only one wave that binds us all together.That some people can generate this wave and others can perceive it is just mechanics.
As in the dragonfly symbol, our new awareness will lift us above the dark waters of sacrificial consciousness, although this will not be a simple transcendence. In this process, we will not become less human. In fact, this process can be launched only through such a deep immersion in our human pain that this itself will become a catalyst for our transcendence.
The awakening process has been known for a long time.It is most accurately described through the esoteric science of alchemy. In traditional Taoist alchemy, there is a secret formula known as Kan and Li, where Kan means water and Li means fire. In this alchemical formula, the solar plexus is seen as a cauldron and emotional energy is the water inside the cauldron. The fire under the cauldron is awareness (also known as Qi). It is believed that this awareness prepares emotional energy (Ching) on fire. As a result of this process, vaporization occurs, in which the third transcendental force is born.The Chinese call this third force Sheng, which means spirit. Western alchemy uses similar archetypes, but through different symbolism. In the West, we tend to see two forces within us – man and woman – animus and anima. Merging into a mystical union, they give birth to a magical child, which is often represented as mercury.
In the language of the 64 Gene Keys, the shadow state is the raw material for potential transcendence. Without deep immersion in our shadows and liberation from their roots, we will never experience euphoria within ourselves from the evaporation of the sacrificial consciousness.Only in these blissful couples can we rise above the emotional depths and ride the collective wave.
The flowering of human gifts
There are two main phases of awakening initiated by the 55th Gift. The first phase is represented by the rise of mass consciousness from the sacrifice of the shadow. When this happens, we will see how the familiar world will begin to gradually change its shape. Until now, only a few have managed to come out of the shadows and give the world their gifts. And only a few of these few have attained the state of siddhi consciousness.All this is exactly as it should be. Each frequency range depends on what is above or below it. In other words, the more people transcend their shadow state, the more chance there is for someone at the highest level of gift to make the leap into siddhi. It may take 100,000 people of the gift frequency to energize the one who makes this leap. And even one person of the siddhi level affects the frequencies of thousands of others, helping them to rise from the lower frequencies of their shadows and begin to live their gifts.
When a person is freed from the state of the shadow, he becomes a creative conductor of life itself. In addition, he begins to fulfill his true purpose within the whole. The decisive destiny of the whole is represented by the 50th and 6th Siddhi – Harmony and Peace. This means that as soon as a person begins to do what he loves in life, he begins to create these conditions on the physical plane. To finally reach its final phase, this process can take hundreds or even thousands of years.When this happens, like a dragonfly, our entire planet will be mutated until its next phase of evolution into another reality, represented by the 28th Siddhi of Immortality.
The word Freedom is immeasurable. As soon as we begin the process of transcending our shadows, our lives are filled with miracles. Freedom is the spirit of the 55th Gift and the spirit of humanity. As your awareness expands, the spirit of freedom breaks down the barriers in your life. Fractal lines open up around you and the energy that was squeezed in a certain dimension suddenly begins to create favorable circumstances in your life.All aspects of your life are interconnected, so that a breakthrough in the source of your being will reach all areas that you may never have even known existed.
Ternary sequence of awakening
In the first part of the description of this Gene Key, we looked at the threefold pattern inherent in all universal rhythms, delineating it with the evolutionary phases of the Three Aeons and our current phase, known as 333, which contains the main genetic sequence for closing the aeons.Since the late 1980s, the world has undergone extensive changes in its internal structure. As we walk through this incredible portal, we can identify three different dates or markers that mark the trajectory of the planetary awakening and merging process. These shift markers recorded on the watch of evolution are: 1987 – Harmonious Convergence, 2012 – Melodic Resonance, and 2027 – Rhythmic Symphony. These three phases of Harmony, Melody and Rhythm of the programming field give a start for a complete restructuring of the vibration of all life on our planet.
1987 – Harmonious Convergence
Much has been said about Harmonious Convergence. It represents the crossing of the line in consciousness at the moment when an unprecedented event occurs. Beginning with a supernova explosion in a nearby galaxy, 1987 heralded the beginning of the Age of Synthesis. A series of geometrically unprecedented star parades allowed a shift in the chemistry of the human brain to occur, which finally gave us the opportunity to perceive the all-encompassing Truth beyond the great centuries-old teachings.It is important to understand that these marker points mark not single events, but processes continuing their development. Harmonious Convergence is still happening today on many levels, while vast, disconnected areas of human endeavor are being brought together. Now we see the beginning of the synthesis of all sciences and arts, left and right hemispheres of the brain, man and woman, East and West. Harmony, as the wise Heraclitus said, is inherently hidden from view, but now it is becoming more and more obvious.
2012 – Melodic Resonance
As one of the most talked about dates in recent times, 2012 is a year that not much remains unsaid. Let’s look at it in the context of this threefold sequence of awakening. In metaphorical terms, 1987 was a period of pregnancy, 2012 was the year of birth, and 2027 was the year of the maturation of a new order. The true meaning of the melody lies in understanding the romance – this musical aspect that captures the breath and which encourages a person to dream.2012 marks the point of alignment for humanity as a single organism through breathing and awakened awareness at the solar plexus center. No matter how deep dreams and desires languish inside you, you are already infected and locked in by this date for the transition to resonance with the heart of humanity through the newly awakening awareness of the Atlanteans, or paradise.
2012 also marks a milestone in human evolution. If by this date you have not resonated with a new dream moving into form, your DNA will be blocked for the future history of the planet.This is, in fact, a completely natural phenomenon. Much of the current human DNA must cease to function in order for a new form to be built. Therefore, after a few generations, we will see how many old patterns leave our world. This means that over the course of a certain time we can become witnesses of two simultaneously existing different realities – those who continue to live in old systems, and those who build new ones.
2027 – Rhythmic Symphony Many mystics and ancient calendars have long predicted a great turning point at the beginning of this century – the point at which human evolution should reach its climax.The Human Design System – one of the great systems that laid the foundation for this work on the 64 Gene Keys – uses the 64 codes of the ancient I Ching as a kind of genetic clock to measure the timing of potential future mutations in human DNA. This gene clock predicts a colossal genetic mutation that will begin to unfold through the solar plexus system of humankind starting in 2027. Thus, 2027 is a year that is difficult to describe in words. The coming shift in consciousness will be an inward explosion of an extremely high frequency of siddhi consciousness.Of course, after this date, nothing will be the same as before.
Starting in 2027, our planet will undergo a gradual process of sinking into silence to a state of awe. Between 2012 and 2027, the core awakening fractal of humanity will build the foundation of a new world that, many generations later, will turn this planet inside out. Old systems will gradually fall apart, while a new order will grow in their place. This time will mark the phase of the rebirth of Paradise, which never left this planet, but remained as an energetic imprint.Harmony and melody will be synthesized here into a universal divine rhythm. For the first time, humanity will hear and masterly perform the great symphony of spheres. At a certain point in our future after 2027, we will finally discover the miracle of being simple. Indeed, there will be nothing left but to enjoy the garden, which has never been in the history of our species.
Marriage of a sacred couple
As mentioned earlier, the approaching shift will bring the end of the age of the individual Self and will give rise to the age of the collective We.There are many steps in this process, and the first step concerns basic frequency shifting in relationships. The awakening will bring a lot of phenomenal things into the world, in particular something that we have always dreamed of but never had – the ideal of a sacred marriage. The modern institution of marriage is an attempt to grasp this ideal on the physical plane. However, marriages and relationships, even the most pure and impeccable ones, have not yet been able to fully embody the principle of marriage in its highest potential – the true sharing of the same aura with each other.
In order for the ideal of a sacred couple to arise on the physical level, a fusion of awareness must first take place. In the language of alchemy, this is called mystica (mystical union) or coniunctio. Enlightenment or realization has always happened only with individuals, and in the history of the world there has never been an enlightened couple in its true sense. You may have seen symbolic examples, and there are, of course, couples who experience these common states from time to time. However, the first step in breaking down the barriers between the two human forms will heal the Yin / Yang gap between man and woman.The inherited tension between the sexes is so strong that true fusion is not yet possible.
When the first relationship experiences enlightenment together, we learn that the deepest of wounds is finally healed – the wound symbolized by the separation and expulsion of Adam and Eve. These sacred marriages will radiate an incredible energy field around them – in fact, they will become the core of completely new communities. This will herald the end of the sexuality we know today, as the same genetic force that separates men and women is also the force responsible for connecting them.In other words, human sexual power will gradually sublimate into creativity and higher consciousness. This means that over time, the population of our planet will gradually and consistently decrease.
The ancient symbol for the 55th Gene Key is the Cup of Abundance or Sacred Chalice. At the level of shadow consciousness, this cup is never full – one side in a relationship always pulls and the other pushes, one needs and the other rejects. This situation arises from the human tendency to blame, which in relationships defines each other’s exhausting dynamics.
In the new human relationships that will replace the old ones, the cup will never be half full or half empty. There will be only one awareness in a relationship, so the cup will always be overflowing. We will no longer “fall in love” – we will take off. The great love that exists between Yin and Yang will finally shatter the illusion of divided ™ and open up an endless fountain of energy from the very center of creation. Ultimately this will happen through the expansion of families and communities with sacred marriages that will emerge through the new awareness.
Music of Changes
Many scientists have discovered similarities between the structure of DNA and music. Portions of DNA and protein sequences are usually repeated with slight differences. These imperfect repetitions have often been likened to the structure of musical compositions, especially classical and oriental music. The idea of the human body as a tool isn’t all that far-fetched. We represent the refined structure of the rhythms and melody of our neural waves, blood circulation, heart rate, endocrine cycles and the very fluid in our cells – all of which breathe according to a steady rhythm.At an even deeper subatomic level, our molecules and their atomic structures also vibrate at very high frequencies and are engineered from a universal geometry. From this perspective, a person looks like nothing more than a symphony of rhythms, tempos and sounds intertwined with each other.
The 55th Gift is deeply related to sound and how our bodies and emotions respond to it. The age-old connection between the spectrum of human emotion and music is rooted here in this Gene Key. It is quite possible that one of the most accurate analogies between the structure of DNA and music concerns the triplet.DNA is packaged in triplets made up of combinations of base pairs. The triplet is the key structural foundation of the entire genetic spiral. In music, triplets represent something extraordinary – a pure spiritual impulse of life itself. The musical triplet always tries to resolve another note, and in this sense it has the effect of a human heart dying in the air. This desire is precisely expressed by the 55th Gift – the desire to create something more. Unlike duality, trinity does not lie on a straight line – it does not stop, but repeats itself, always free and always fresh.
When the Great Changes come, the ancient fear within us will subside and we will hear new music. We will begin to vibrate at higher frequencies that will chemically free us from old genetic fears; we will become one with the music of life and experience the full range of emotions from light to dark, without fear or shame. This is a new kind of music, where there are no paths to follow, and there is no need for systems and structures for our safety. These old ways of life are leaving our world.The new person will no longer try to escape from his inner pure desire for life. We will no longer be afraid of true freedom, because we will begin to live out of awareness outside the mind with its concern for the future. Ultimate freedom has nothing to do with your life circumstances – it is the freedom to allow yourself to dissolve in the waves of the ocean; freedom born of the absolute trust of life.
Poetry is the highest expression of human language.Authentic poetry captures the hidden essence of what cannot be expressed in words. The secret lies in rhythm, modulation and tonal frequency. To be a poet, imagination must be freed from linguistic structure. Likewise, the true character of humanity cannot be logically confined or homogenized. Our true nature is wild, and this wildness scares us. The moment you think you have made life better, it mutates. We are now in a deep process of transcending mental play into trying to understand life.The ancient Indian sages called our world maya, illusion. The problem is that we have always tried to comprehend this maya through a mental instrument, limited by laws that prevent true understanding. You cannot use the instrument of maya to understand her.
A new awareness will put an end to many things. One such conclusion that we will witness is the disappearance of the “how” question. As a species, we will no longer be obsessed with intellectual understanding.It will also put an end to spiritual quest. We will no longer fix our awareness on structures and systems. We will no longer starve at any level. Like poets or musicians, we will plunge into the very mystery. Humanity is actually in the very early stages of the transcendence of genetics. Once our consciousness begins to enter the level of pure awareness of our emotional system, we will finally be able to see through the veil that has held us prisoners for a long time. Freed in this way from our minds, we can weave truly great poetry out of our lives.We are entering an era of stunning beauty – an era of transformation, where creativity will reign and living life will become art.
Possible and probable effects of a future genetic mutation
With the coming phase, especially after 2027, there will be a big change in the world. The very nature of mutation will bring unexpected quantum leaps, followed by extended periods of integration. Any change on a social level takes time, and some phases will last for hundreds of years.
The secret of the 55th Gift at the physiological level lies in a single element – salt, which has long been recognized for its cleansing properties and the ability to remove toxins from the body. Every cell in the body contains salt, and salt balance in the body is the main key to health. Everything related to the 55th Gift is rooted in its literal and metaphorical connection with water. As we learned from the 32nd Gene Key, water has memory. When your emotions get really strong, you free your memory with salt through tears and sweat.What is beginning to happen to humanity now and what will become more and more intense is a process in which the chemistry of ancient memories will leave our bodies. Heightened emotional awareness will gradually remove toxic genetic memories from the human form. On a physical level, this will be done through sweat, tears and urine.
Seawater evaporates and leaves behind salt. A similar process of evaporation and purification awaits people. On a chemical level, we start to change.A new network of neural structures in the solar plexus is replacing the fear-based reptilian neural structure of the old brain. As the 59th Siddhi testifies, people will gradually become more transparent as their bodies stop producing the old chemistry created by fear. After the termination of certain chemical processes associated with the back of the brain, the needs of the body will radically change. Without the toxins produced by fear, the body will require much less salt and become much less dense.
As soon as the human body’s need for salt decreases, our digestive system will begin to mutate as part of the solar plexus mutation. When the altered digestive system allows DNA to pass a higher frequency through it, it looks like our diet will change as well. The body will not only stop craving salty foods, but will also completely stop eating them. It is also possible that gradually people will stop eating meat and will definitely not be able to tolerate such a high salt content that is contained in food with modern processing.Having inherited a mutation through DNA, our children may well be born with a physiological allergy to salty food and meat. All these changes are the result of mutation, and they will come in their own time. During the current transition period, humans actually require even more salt than before in order to collectively flush out the toxins of the past. This is the underlying reason behind this worldwide revolution in food processing. Nature knows exactly what she is doing, and we should be encouraged by this fact.
Digestion is rooted in the mineral kingdom – how the body uses and dissolves trace minerals taken from food and water. In the future, we will become highly efficient in combining nutrients through new digestion. The mechanical means for this will be our mood. In other words, our bodies will tell us exactly what we need to eat and when – all through our mood. The most likely outcome of the mutation will be that we simply will not be hungry as often as we do now, so much less food will be required.In addition, our bodies will start looking for other ways to absorb high frequency food through air and sunlight. As a result, in our distant future, when the last pieces of the cosmic chess game fall into place, the 6th Siddhi will blossom within the collective, making our skin completely transparent, thereby allowing us to completely switch to the nourishment of light.
Emotions and Decisions – Stopping the Wave
Some of the most radical changes for humanity will affect the emotional system itself.Today, people are victims of their own emotional whims. Their decisions are out of harmony with their true nature, creating a collective field of chaos. Once the mutation takes hold, what we know as emotions will play a completely different role. They will cease to be experienced as emotions and will turn into a means of communication. People who develop this mutation will not be able to be drawn into emotional life drama. They will still feel every nuance of the emotional environment deep within their bodies, but their awareness will float on the surface of these waves without getting lost within them.As a result, they will feel completely calm, and one of the signs for recognizing such people will be serenity in their gaze.
Each person carrying the mutation will effectively stop the wave in their environment. As more and more people are born with this awareness, their collective presence will slowly tune the rest of humanity into a new dimension – a dimension of infinite clarity and tranquility. It will also deeply affect how people make decisions.Solutions will no longer be the subject of successive emotional chemistry patterns. Once the collective chemistry of the planet becomes calmer, decisions will emerge spontaneously and with great clarity. Such decisions will no longer belong to individuals – they will arise from the harmony of the center of society.
The process of stopping the wave will eventually bring the world into an era of calm. Metaphorically, this process is akin to an orchestra warming up before a concert – you can hear only a chaotic cacophony of voices of various instruments.This is the current state of humanity. When a mutation comes, the conductor knocks with his stick until all the instruments are silenced. Only when silence reigns will we be able to hear the hidden harmony that embodies the true nature of humanity.
Today, many people are very concerned about the state of the environment on our planet and the enormous damage caused by globalization. Before we look at the good news of things to come, it is important to understand why humanity is doing such harm to itself.To understand these things, you need to look at the big picture. The planet is our larger body and is like the physical body of humans going through a genetic mutation; the same applies to all planetary life, which is a subtle web of intertwined threads. It is impossible for just one species to undergo a global mutation without affecting the rest.
Our current generation is a sacrificial generation. Our collective organism flushes ancient toxins out of humanity.When we looked at nutrition, we saw that the West consumes so much salt that a huge part of the population suffers from obesity. Fat is the fuel for mutation that clears out the collective shadows of humanity. Stress is another symptom of increased activity in the solar plexus. The mutation puts tremendous stress on the physical vehicle. An ancient human wound manifests itself at every level of society – through business, government agencies and the environment itself.
This is the true meaning of the flood myth.The flood is approaching, and it separates the consciousness of the gift from the consciousness of the victim.
Global warming and pollution are the classic incarnation of human injury that is seen on a larger scale. Phenomena of this kind represent the last “feats” of the victim’s consciousness, where the Earth itself acts as the victim. There is overwhelming collective fear around the question of what we do to our environment, but the irony is that if humanity were not gripped by this mutation, we would inevitably destroy ourselves.The ascent of the 55th Gift as a physical genetic mutation literally creates a new species. When our spirit descends and our awareness allows us to experience oneness with each other, we can also experience oneness with all beings. The new awareness will connect us most strongly to the animals, as their awareness is already functioning on a collective level. Although they carry different genetic equipment, their true nature is at the level of the 55th Gift of Freedom. We will not only stop eating animals, but for the first time feel ourselves as one with them.In everything we do, freedom will play a central role.
The most important key to the future will be the massive decline in the human population due to the shift in the frequency of the emotional / sexual apparatus. The world of employment we see today will subside – vast tracts of land will return to a wild state. A sense of space and freedom will return, which represents the essence of our planet. As we have seen, the nature of freedom is in its wildness. We don’t need to do anything to heal the planet.It’s just that there won’t be enough of us to harm her, so nature will find its own natural balance. Animals will be free to move, plants and forests will spread and smell, and people will enjoy just being alive. The very power of fear that has brought humanity to where it is now will simply disappear.
As stated earlier, it is always difficult to foresee the details of what life will be like in the future. What we can feel is only the spirit of the era.It is more than likely that humans will continue to use the incredible technologies that have been created so far, and with the rebirth of our inherent gifts, we must improve them exponentially. The future will not be a degrading period of returning to our original roots. It will be a more creative interaction with nature. At their core, humans have always been gardeners, and this is our real role on this planet – to complete the beauty of nature with our spirit.
The real work of planetary transformation will be done by the oceans.All toxins created by man will eventually end up in the water cycle and will be cleansed by the salts contained in the world’s oceans. And again in this one can see the power of the elements underlying the 55th Gift, as well as the mystical meaning in the approaching era of Aquarius – the era of the water-bearer.
Future technologies and the new science of synthesis
As we contemplate our potential future technologies, their use and impact on the world, we should keep in mind that the coming mutation will directly affect our way of thinking.As our primary awareness shifts to the solar plexus area, all future insights and breakthroughs in science will come from this awareness rather than from our logical mind. This will completely change the scientific approach. Instead of starting with doubt and then working to resolve it scientifically, we will start with confidence, using logic to validate and deepen that confidence. This will give birth to new areas of science and technology. Future science will be the science of synthesis.It will work hand in hand with art, music, mythology and psychology, and most importantly, it will be rooted in the understanding of the body and its physical structure.
The main pivot of all future logical systems involved in this completely new synthesis will be sacred geometry as the central organizing model that allows the human mind to find relationships between all patterns in the hologram of the Universe. For example, advanced physics shows that geometry 64 is not only present within the tetrahedral structure of DNA, but also underlies space-time itself, as well as music.With the help of advanced computer technology, we are now able to create highly complex models of our universe using the laws of fractal geometry. Through this geometry, it will become real to unite all sciences and arts into a single integral whole. Such a synthesis is possible only through mass cooperation of the most diverse fields of knowledge.
With awareness unfolding within the solar plexus, the new physics will rush in a completely new direction. Our most abundant natural source is the sun, and it is likely to become our main source of energy.One of the great Western mystics of the last century, Mikael Aivanhov, spoke of the future of humanity as a solar civilization. In the hologram of the Universe, the awakening of our own inner sun in the solar plexus will be reflected in our technologies. This is a universal law: our external searches reflect our internal development. This will provide tremendous breakthroughs in the science of the future. By transcending the very structure of our DNA, we free ourselves from the gravitational pull of low frequencies. In science, this will be reflected in new technologies such as plasma physics, which will soon allow us to transcend physical gravity and bend space and time.
New science will lead humanity into a future that may seem like science fiction at the moment. Once we have the technology to harness the force of gravity, we can travel beyond our solar system and begin to explore our galaxy and universe. This will mark a phase where the Earth will finally become a player in a much wider field of mind than we are currently able to grasp. All of these breakthroughs lie much closer than many of us dare to dream.More than likely, the technological foundation for this completely new era in human history will be laid already in the first half of this century.
Government, poverty and money
In order to understand the future social structure of humanity, you need to have a clear understanding of the nature of fractals. (You can learn more about this through contemplation of the 44th, 45th and 49th Siddhi. Each of them deals with different levels of change that will cause a revolution in the interaction of people on a collective level).It is obvious that humanity will eventually become connected by a single all-pervading spirit, which is much like how the Internet connects us today on the material plane. The creation of the electronic World Wide Web is a harbinger of what will happen at the genetic level. The nature of the human spirit is freedom, and this means that freedom will become for a person the only real guide to action.
Once the human spirit is liberated, another very significant Gene Key will collectively blossom – the 50th Gift of Equilibrium.This Gift is one of the most important in how people serve and care for each other. Through the 50th Gift, humanity will gradually come to a state of cosmic harmony. On a social level, the presence of this gift in different communities and ethnic groups will bring a new order. This gift will contribute to the gradual disappearance of corruption and crime. This means that the needed aid will move from more developed countries to less developed ones, and poverty will eventually disappear.
The future of money can also be seen quite clearly through an understanding of certain gifts and siddhis – especially the 45th Siddhi.Money is inherently the physical expression of the sacrificial consciousness. They represent human fear. Our relationship to money is our relationship to fear.
Nothing brings out ulterior motives more quickly than the topic of money. Almost all money received or given has a hidden charge. Only money received or given away unselfishly has no charge. As soon as money gains purity in circulation, it will become energetically purified and will manifest one of the great cosmic laws – to receive is to give.The most successful businesses of the future will build on the 45th Gift of Synergy. These types of businesses will no longer be based on competition and fear, but will become transparent and highly efficient. Greed and fear are inherently highly ineffective.
As soon as the higher aspects of the 45th Siddhi come into play, the money itself will disappear. When it does, it will be the greatest symbol of the true freedom our planet has ever shown, and it will mark a worldwide celebration like we never knew it.As we have seen, this 55th Gene Key is part of a codon group known as the Vortex Ring. Together with the 49th Gene Key, they will bring about dramatic changes at all levels of society. Interestingly, this codon ring encodes the amino acid histidine, which is released during physical orgasm. The whirlwind sweeping through the human genome can be likened to a collective orgasm – a spiral force of consciousness that rolls through the body of humanity and lifts us higher and higher to the level of unity and ecstasy.
Death, Medicine and Supernova Siddhi
Freedom is the only true medicine of our future. There are many levels of freedom, but ultimate freedom is freedom from the belief that you are separate from life. The awareness that comes through the 55th Gene Key proclaims death to the very fear of death. In fact, the 55th Gene Key not only destroys this fear – it proves that there is no such thing as death. The fear of death is actually trapped within the 28th Shadow, which has a deep connection to the 55th Gift.By mutating, the 55th Gene Key also mutates the 28th Gene Key, at least at the level of its Gift of Totality. The secret of true health lies here in the 28th Gift, as it determines the free flow of life force through the physical body. Once we humans transcend the old fear, life force will flow unhindered through our bodies again. The strength and vitality of this energy has tremendous healing potential and will literally root out all the diseases of humanity.
The true nature of disease is rooted in an underlying fear of death.With the elimination of this fear, we will enter an age in which medicine will become unnecessary. Naturally, as old diseases are cleared out, some of them can mutate and even spread widely for some time. This process is likely to last for several hundred years. True healing is tied to our ancient DNA, and in order for a person to achieve perfect health, their entire old genetic line must be completely purged. This purification takes place through the presence of the siddhi. As soon as siddhi manifests in a person, a blast wave of purity arises, moving back along the entire genetic fractal line.The people who bring these frequencies into the world also absorb the collective shadows of their ancestors’ bloodlines.
We are on the verge of an explosion of a supernova siddhi. The number of those in whom the siddhis will manifest will grow rapidly as the great incarnation begins on the physical plane. This incarnation represents the third aspect of the Holy Trinity – the spirit of the Divine Feminine. However, this embodiment is not of a separate entity, but of the collective spirit of a certain constellation of entities, each of which occupies a central fractal.(For more details on the role of central fractals, you can read the 44th Siddhi). The process of incarnating the Divine Feminine will last for many generations, but ultimately all fractal lines of humanity will be cleaned out, which will lead to the burning of the collective karma stored in human DNA, and the final elimination of all diseases on the physical plane.
Children and Education
The last area we will look at is in many ways one of the most important.These are children who hold our future in their hands. Many children who come to our world today carry the seed of a future mutation in their blood. And already their children will become those who will give birth to a new awareness, which will begin to happen after 2027. One of the amazing things about kids is the clean and innocent way of handling the emotional wave. Our current generation of children does indeed reflect the impending chemical changes, and in that sense their emotional nature is quite unique. These are children whose emotional outbursts or physical manifestations should be perceived on a collective, not personal level.Of course, these children require a reasonable framework within which any parent places the child, but within this framework, much more space is needed for personal freedom. A mutation enters our emotional system, and as it moves through our chemistry, it will throw up eccentric behavioral patterns and unexpected emotional phenomena. The real key for parents is not to assume that something is wrong with their children, but to give them even more love and be extremely patient.
Not all children from future generations will carry the mutation.It will not be difficult to identify those with the new awareness, since they will not exhibit any of the emotionality normally found in all children. Parents will discover a new kind of peace that comes to their families simply by having one of these children in the home. All of these children will exhibit unique abilities from an early age based on their hologenetic profile and their Primary Gifts.
One of the dramatic changes these children will bring will be in the educational system.Since their main center of awareness will be located outside their brain, they will be extremely intelligent. As soon as the mind is transcended, real genius arises. Their teaching method will be closer to gradual comprehension than memorization through repetition, and their memory will be extraordinary. From all this, it would seem that such children would be very vulnerable within our existing society. However, it is not. Thanks to their gifts, they will not need special treatment or special education.On the other hand, they must integrate into normal life. Wherever they go, they will attract those experiences that will only allow them to enhance their gifts. Their strength comes from their very transparency. They will be driven by an energy so powerful that it is beyond our comprehension. It will be impossible for such children to feel lonely or to feel like a victim.
The presence of these children in society will reveal the limitations of existing education systems.Probably, one of the practices of our past will return – the system of apprenticeship, in which children with different talents learn from certain teachers and learn about life, not sitting at a desk, but from the real world. The 55th Gift of Freedom will make itself felt at every level. For a child, freedom is about play. It is through play that the child learns the world around him. Therefore, it is quite possible that the children of the future will no longer be sent to schools at an early age, but will receive as much space as they need to truly flourish.
As adults, these children initiate the first great pulse of a new age through the imperative to be fully integrated into the existing social structures of the planet. Many of them themselves will be able to become teachers, doctors, lawyers, businessmen or get other normal professions. Since they will be able to feel life at a holistic level, they will be able to carry out subtle reforms that will create a chain reaction at all levels of society. Anything they touch will become more effective.These will be people who do not carry absolutely any fear within themselves, but can feel it in any other. This level of empathy and the ability to put themselves in the shoes of the other will make them relationship masters. Smoothly and subtly, these children and the children of their children will transform our planet. As noted earlier, higher consciousness will literally uproot the sacrificial consciousness nature from humanity.
All of the above is an intuitive exploration of the archetypal codes contained in the 64 Gene Keys, seen through the prism of the 55th Gene Key.It contains the frequency of our common future rather than its specificity. This frequency, which underlies all work on the 64 Gene Keys, is of primary importance. There are those who fully resonate with it, as well as those who do not feel it. This book is written for those of you who feel connected to these higher frequencies. Each within his being has a barometer of Truth, and in different people it manifests itself in different ways. If in these words you feel the breath of truth, then you are one of those who are ready to dive into the depths of your own shadows to fully accept them.Freedom comes at a price, and that price is transparency. You must acknowledge each of your negative feelings and tendencies and take full responsibility for them. You must extract the subtle arrows of guilt from your being, discover every hidden particle of fear within it, and fearlessly accept it.
Once you become transparent and sincere with yourself and others, the seed of future awareness can take root in you. Even though this mutation may not be physically present in your genetics, you can still resonate strongly with its energy field.Moreover, if your heart is open and humble, this awareness will inevitably awaken within you and use your life as a launching pad for a flight into the heavens of freedom, setting the stage for the true world of higher romance that is about to come.

Gender conflict in fiction by O. Slavnikova
hotvorny text presents an objectified description, where the personal pronoun “I” in the nominative case appears only once, and only indirect cases (“with me”) and third-person constructions (“remembered”, etc.) unobtrusively indicate the presence of a lyrical character. In the poem, the author’s focus is on the experience of the lyrical character associated with the return. Moreover, the motive of the return is presented in a wave-like manner. This is achieved with the help of stanza parallelism with reduction and permutations: I will shudder, I will remember … / I will shudder, I will give up, I will remember … / I will give up, I will remember … [8, p. 231].
In the poem “For years someday in the concert hall …” the experiences of the lyric hero are transformed from an indefinite personal construction to the pronominal component “I” and a nominative construction visualizing a series-image: They will play Brahms for me, / I will shudder, I will remember the union six-hearted… [8, p. 123]. Consequently, the experiences-memories “of the” I “are characterized by passive sounding. Passive echoes are also presented by a prosaic passage.
The through equivalent image of a candle is distinguished by increased frequency in the novel “Doctor Zhivago” and in many poems by B. Pasternak. Of undoubted interest is a fragment of the novel “Doctor Zhivago”, when Lara and Antipov are sitting in a house located in Kamergersky Lane, by the light of a candle, which Zhivago passing by can clearly see in a thawed eye.The sight of a candle evokes in Zhivago the well-known lines: “The candle was burning on the table, the candle was burning” [9, p. 206]. The ambivalent frequency image of a candle is also present in the scene of Zhivago’s death. Looking at the deceased doctor, Lara conducts an internal dialogue: “Could she think that the deceased lying on the table saw this peephole passing from the street and drew attention to the candle? What of this, seen outside the flame – “The candle was burning on the table, the candle was burning” [9, p. 206].
So, the analysis of the unique syncretic texts of B.Pasternak’s poetry / prose axis allows us to talk about linguistic equivalents in a number of positions: cross-cutting motifs, situational components, conceptual integrity, compositional and rhythmic-syntactic organization.
In the process of analyzing the poetry and prose of B. Pasternak, we reveal the following pattern: his poetic canvases, as a rule, are more complicated than prose, since they “include not only the immediate content of the poem, but some
amenable to prosaic retelling, but also a model of the structure of the poem ”[10, p.43].
In B. Pasternak’s poetry, the artistic image, following the laws of suggestiveness, represents a semantic multilevel “structure”. The prosaic fabric makes it possible to reveal the semantic core of the image, “to more clearly outline the circle of individual associations” [2, p. 179].
Shalamov poetic texts are distinguished by a branched complex of artistic means: metaphors, epithets, color harmony.Minimal naturalism characterizes poetry: it is less dependent on the corrupting influence of the Kolyma.
Opposing poetry, Shalamov’s prose is characterized by a tough and sometimes excessive naturalism. It is not without reason that Shalamov emphasizes in his notes that in “poetic form it is easier to protect oneself from the temptations of naturalism” [6, p. 135; 11, 12]. In the prosaic structure, a more objectified artistic complex appears before us, the associative-emotional atmosphere is, rather, of a background nature.
Despite significant differences in the field of poetics, two forms of verbal expression are equally important for B. Pasternak and V. Shalamov – poetry and prose. It is thanks to the change in the forms of expression that “it becomes possible to trace how the inner creative attitude is gradually modified, revealing the“ allegory code ”of the linguistic personality” [2, p. 202].
In the course of the research, the phenomenon of formal-semantic invariance in the creative space of V.Shalamov and B. Pasternak. The phenomenon of parallel coexistence of two forms of linguistic embodiment – verse and prose – within the framework of a single creative system is analyzed. In the course of the analysis, cross-cutting images and motives were identified, which are differently refracted in the prosaic and poetic contexts of the analyzed authors. The article identifies some “twin” poetic and prose texts designed to identify the most frequent equivalents in the poetry and prose of V. Shalamov and B. Pasternak. In the course of the research, a detailed comparative and comparative analysis of synthetic creative systems was carried out, the unique phenomenon of linguistic bilingualism in the work of V.Shalamov and B. Pasternak.

GENDER CONFLICT IN THE PROSE BY OLGA SLAVNIKOVA. The article gives an analysis of the prose by O. Slavnikova from the point of view of a gender approach and to identify the features of gender conflict. Gender conflict in the prose of O. Slavnikova can be traced in the images of women characters, as in the novel ‘Dragonfly Enlarged to the Size of a Dog’, in the destruction of gender stereotypes in the novel ‘Alone in the Mirror’, when the characters do not meet the standards of behavior traditionally considered to be “male” or “female” in society.And in the novel ‘Immortal’ gender relationships are escalated with the leaving of Klimov – Marina’s husband. The love-and-family troubles can be traced in the relationships of the characters and in the destruction of the institution of the family: a break in relationships between husband and wife, changes in the worldviews of the main characters, etc. One important plot-forming element in the escalation of gender conflict in novels by Olga Slavnikova is male infidelity and more rarely female infidelity.Male infidelity is characterized by aggressiveness, authoritarianism, dominance in relationships with the opposite sex. Slavnikova’s characters sometimes refute traditional ideas about masculinity (Antonov (“Alone in the mirror”), Klimov (“Immortal”), Krylov (“2017”). The gender world in Olga Slavnikova’s novels is depicted by various plot-compositional lines that expose the social problems of modern Russian society to the reader.
Key words: gender, conflict, prose, female prose, male, female, Olga Slavnikova.

GENDER CONFLICT IN THE PROSE OF O. SLAVNIKOVA
The article attempts to analyze the literary prose of O.Slavnikova from the point of view of the gender approach and identify the features of the gender conflict. The gender conflict in O. Slavnikova’s prose can be traced in the images, first of all, of female heroines, for example, in the novel Dragonfly Enlarged to the Size of a Dog, in the destruction of gender stereotypes in the novel Alone in the Mirror, when the heroes do not correspond to the standards of behavior, traditionally considered “male” or “female” in society. And in the novel “Immortal”, gender relations are exacerbated with the departure from the house of Klimov, Marina’s husband.Love and family problems can be traced in the relationship between the heroes and in the destruction of the institution of the family: the rupture of relations between husband and wife, a change in the worldview of the main characters, etc. One important plot-forming element in the exacerbation of gender conflict in Olga Slavnikova’s novels is male infidelity, and sometimes, i.e. to a lesser extent – female. Male infidelity is characterized by aggressiveness, authoritarianism, dominance in relationships with the opposite sex. Heroes of Slavnikova sometimes refute traditional ideas about masculinity (Antonov (“Alone in the Mirror”), Klimov (“Immortal”), Krylov (“2017”).The gender world in Olga Slavnikova’s novels is depicted in a variety of plot and compositional lines that expose the reader to the social problems of modern Russian society.
Keywords: gender, conflict, prose, women’s prose, masculine, feminine, Olga Slavnikova.
The concept of “tender” is a subject of study in many sciences: sociology, history, psychology, linguistics, etc.etc., however, the use and implementation of this concept (as well as other concepts included in its system) is elucidated to a lesser extent in literary criticism. Nevertheless, gender analysis can serve as a research tool for literary texts.
In domestic science, gender is considered as “a really existing system of interpersonal interaction, through which the idea of male and female as categories of social order is created, confirmed and reproduced” .
Masculine (masculinity) and Feminine (femininity) are different in nature. Here is what V.A. Lukov and V.N. Kirillina: “For the Feminine principle, nature has fixed the function of preservation, stability, passivity, and for the Masculine – destruction, experimentation, activity. This natural distinction, necessary for procreation, is the deepest, ontological basis of gender conflict … ”. As you can see, the essence of these two principles already presupposes delimitation, difference, collision, that is, a gender conflict.
In the dictionary of gender terms, the following definition can be found: “Gender conflict is an interaction or psychological state, which is based on a contradictory perception of gender values, relationships, roles, leading to a clash of interests and goals” .
Gender conflict (sometimes gender-role conflict) is also understood as “a contradiction (clash) between normative ideas about personality traits, behavior patterns of men and women, and the inability or unwillingness of a person to meet these ideas and requirements” .
It can be concluded that gender conflict is a confrontation between two principles, male and female, caused by their natural differences. The problem of “masculine – feminine” (or “feminine – masculine”) as an eternal struggle between two opposing and at the same time existing in unity principles is comprehended not only in philosophy, psychology, sociology, but also in fiction.
Olga Aleksandrovna Slavnikova creates her works at the junction of mass and elite literature, when reading her stories and novels, one can notice the writer’s focus not only on the general readership, but also on an erudite audience capable of revealing her artistic intent.It should be noted that the work of O. Slavnikova is difficult to consider in the context of one artistic direction, since in her works there are stylistic attitudes of different trends, which makes her prose original and unique. According to A.N. Shestak, “. Within the framework of each work of the writer, it is possible to identify the features of postmodernism and realism. some constants of postmodernism are revealed with the help of stylistic attitudes of magical realism. In addition, Slavnikova is a representative of women’s prose, which also leaves its unique imprint on the subject matter and stylistics of her prose ”.
The gender conflict can be traced primarily in the images of O. Slavnikova’s fiction.
It is generally accepted that the following qualities are characteristic of the Masculine: aggressiveness, independence, authoritarianism, rationalism, dominance in relations with the opposite sex, etc. [five]. In the fiction of O. Slavnikova, there are heroes who refute the traditional notions of masculinity: these are Antonov (the novel “One in the Mirror”), Klimov (the novel “Immortal”), Ivan (the novel “Dragonfly Enlarged to the Size of a Dog”), Krylov ( novel “2017”).These heroes are depicted not as dominant, but rather, on the contrary, passive, unable to be the support of the family.
Traditionally, a woman acts as a homemaker. Passivity in social relations, tactfulness, need for protection, emotionality, impulsivity in acceptance90,004 decisions, sensitivity, humility, caring, complaisance, etc.etc. . Some of the heroines of O. Slavnikova do not possess such qualities as submissiveness, caring, passivity: Vika (the novel “Alone in the Mirror”), Marina (the novel “Immortal”), Tamara Krylova (the novel “2017”).
The gender conflict is also manifested in the love and family problems of the writer’s works. And in this aspect, it is important to highlight the problem of family and marriage. The family is no longer a refuge, a reliable stronghold for heroes, and marriage becomes more a test than a union.
In the novel “Dragonfly, Enlarged to the Size of a Dog,” the sad story of the relationship between mother and daughter unfolds before the reader. From the very beginning, the author gives an explanation: “It was a family of hereditary teachers, or rather teachers, because husbands and fathers very soon disappeared somewhere, and women gave birth exclusively to girls, and only one at a time” . The author’s clarification here is no coincidence: the novel shows in detail the life of two women, a mother and a daughter, and their attempts to find personal happiness.
Mother Sofya Andreevna is a head teacher and a “harsh literary woman”, a domineering woman, daughter Katerina Ivanovna is a sluggish and careless girl who later becomes an old and overweight maiden working as a typist. The novel begins with the funeral of Sophia Andreevna, then the action is presented in retrospect: the author tells about the mother’s youth and the growing up of her daughter. Mother and daughter are the only relatives who share a small one-room apartment, nevertheless, they are absolutely strangers to each other.
The gender conflict in this novel is most clearly seen in the relationships between the heroines and men. Neither mother nor daughter can build a relationship with the opposite sex, for them the concept of “marriage” remains unsolved (Sofia Andreevna’s short-term marriage can hardly be called happy). Men appear in their lives, however, as it has been customary in this family for a long time, “to disappear beyond the horizon was a universal property of men.” . The loneliness of women, the destruction of marriage, the disorder of personal life is primarily due to the “family tradition” – Sofya Andreevna, like her daughter, grew up without a father.It becomes clear why for her Ivan’s drinking and his disappearances are “natural manifestations of his essence.” All attempts by the heroine to build a relationship with Ivan bring pain and disappointment.
The fate of the daughter is developing in a similar way. Ryabkov, who begins to look after her, is perceived by Katerina Ivanovna as “a sudden obstacle.” If we draw a parallel between the images of Sofya Andreevna and Katerina Ivanovna, then it becomes obvious that the fates of the heroines are similar, duplicate each other: “Sometimes their similarity was blurred for several years, but inevitably arose again” .
In the role of mother, Sofya Andreevna also collapses: alienation, misunderstanding, sometimes even hatred in her relationship with her daughter is caused by her attitude towards her daughter. She calls Katerina Ivanovna nothing more than a “girl”; the heroine perceives the picture of her daughter painted as a gift as an insult. In a mother-daughter relationship, mother is the side that teaches her daughter, transfers her experience and knowledge, but Sofya Andreevna, a strict and authoritarian woman, does not even tell her daughter about her father: “If Sofya Andreevna told her daughter about her father, – but in their entire life together, mother and daughter never talked about anything serious.”. Men for heroines are something alien, not having the right to be present in their space. It is not for nothing that the relationship with Ryabkov scares Katerina Ivanovna: “Then she was afraid that she would be given to a strange, unfamiliar mother, and now she was given to a strange man, as if she had just appeared from nowhere.” . Here the author emphasizes the role of the family as the main place for the formation of the personality.
The Immortal novel also tells the story of a mother and daughter.In fact, these heroines also remain alone: caring for a sick veteran, Alexei Afanasyevich, Nina Aleksandrovna experiences life dramas alone; her daughter Marina, who is fighting for a place in the sun, is leaving her husband Seryozha Klimov. The husband’s infidelity gradually according to the plot, like a ball of thread, races –
is confused. At the end of the novel, Klimov’s departure becomes inevitable, which Marina does not want to accept. She still loves him and wants to keep the family at all costs.The relationship between Klimov and Marina as an example of a real Russian family, which, like the whole country, is changing, in a broad sense is transforming. The family as a traditional institution is losing its values; it is no longer the criterion of morality and spirituality in the rapidly changing global world.
Love and family issues are also important in the novel “Alone in the Mirror”, which unfolds the story of an unhappy, unequal marriage. Unlike previous novels, in this work, the gender conflict is caused, rather, by the worldview of the main characters.
Antonov is a teacher and scientist who writes a monograph in the field of fractal geometry. He is much older than his wife Vicki (by fifteen years), and this age gap becomes one of the reasons for the destruction of the marriage. In the relationship between the heroes of the novel, the parent-child model is clearly traced, when Antonov builds relationships from the perspective of an adult, while Vika – from the perspective of a child. Indeed, the heroine is shown more as a rebellious teenager than a wife: she does not care about family life at all, disappears in clubs and comes home late at night, forcing her husband to worry and call all her acquaintances.Antonov, like a father, tries to control her and even educate her. Moreover, he often thinks that he could become a stepfather for Vicki: “. He thought that instead of Vicki he could marry mother-in-law Sveta, who seemed to be one of those whom he once looked at. Then he could not suffer, but simply raise Vika as his adopted daughter. ” .
But the main reason for the breakdown of relations between the heroes is found in their worldview. Antonov is a person for whom numbers are a way of describing the world.He perceives the world around him through the prism of mathematics: for example, the road from home to the psychiatric hospital, where Vika lies, is exactly “eleven foggy, kiosk-furnished stops” for him; people in a protest demonstration appear to him as “expensive microcircuits”: “a transition from the most complex (human) to geometrically primitive”, that is, to the crowd ; he feels the break in relations with his wife in space only as “implicit symmetry.” Hera, an acquaintance of Vika’s mother, calls Antonov “in-tellichent”.All this suggests that the reader has a hero with a rich spiritual world, a person endowed with a special worldview. For the “stupid” Vicki, as the narrator often calls her, money is the universal measure of things (for example, she perceives car numbers as the sum of money). A significant detail also speaks about the heroine’s spiritual poverty – “the most vulgar quotation book of wise thoughts,” phrases from which she uses in her speech. The extreme opposite of Vicki is Yana V., the heroine of the story “The End of Monplaisir”.Yana V. was not stupid, she was for the union of ignorance and art, although she sold works of art. The narrator shows her a woman who loves life, does not particularly hurt anyone, builds her relationships with men exactly and knows what she wants from life. At the end of the story, she manages to make a very big deal – to sell a painting by an unknown artist-drunkard Ilya Kaporeikin, who, as it seems to him, fell in love with Yana V.
In the narrative, as in other novels (Immortal 2) by Olga Slavnikova, a completely different plot line abruptly breaks into an incomprehensible situation: Kaporeikin learns that the buyer of his still life, the head of the financial and industrial group, Mr. Selivanov, was shot by unknown persons.And only one of his paintings remained inaccessible to him. In the story “The End of Monplaisir” gender relations are built neatly, neither the feminine nor masculine principles conflict with each other, the characters have an even, non-binding relationship. We can safely say: there is no gender superiority of women over men.
Another facet of family conflict in O. Slavnikova’s novels is male infidelity (Ivan in the novel “Dragonfly enlarged to the size of a dog”, Klimov in the work “Immortal”, Antonov – “Alone in the Mirror”, Krylov – “2017”), and sometimes women (Vika in the work “Alone in the Mirror”).Many heroes never realize themselves in the role of husband or wife. In family life, the relationships of the heroes are not developing in the best way. In fiction O.
Slavnikova man and woman constantly overcome the invisible struggle for existence and domination in society.
In the novel “The Immortal” the main character, Aleksey Afanasyevich Kharitonov, has been bedridden for fourteen years and does not know that the Soviet Union is long gone, a completely different formation has come.His women (Nina Aleksandrovna is his wife, Marina is the daughter of Nina Aleksandrovna) supported and looked after him. Gender relations in the novel are built according to a peculiar scenario, which was invented by the daughter of Nina Alexandrovna – Marina. It was Marina who decided that Aleksey Afanasyevich did not know anything about the changes in the country, and the family – her husband Seryozha and her mother – silently agreed and lived like this until Aleksey Afanasyevich suspected something here. In the finale of the novel, Aleksey Afanasyevich himself learns everything that he has long lived in a country different from socialism, found Vedomosti hidden behind a breadbasket, listened to the radio and watched TV programs.Nina Alexandrovna suddenly discovered that her husband had changed so dramatically, and all her deception was revealed. Women – the heroines of the novel try to control men, build family life according to the scenario they have conceived, do not give men the slightest chance to create life in their own way. In the novel “The Immortal”, men are peculiar victims of female feminism.
Women in Olga Slavnikova’s novels are most often deprived of rights, like the prose heroines of Lyudmila Petrushevskaya, they are socially enslaved by men .So, in the story “Strict Grandmother” the main character claims that it is men and her own children that are the cause of all her troubles. The main character of the story “How Penelope” is named Oksana. Her hopeless life was presented as follows: a computer, a fax machine, a printer, a room littered with papers and the uncertainty of her future family life. A striking example of feminism in the work of L. Petrushevskaya was the images of the Terrible from the story “Little Terrible” and Anna Andrianovna from the story “Time for Night”. The life of the aforementioned characters of Petrushevskaya was ruined by the notorious housing issue.Both heroines survived from their own apartments of all children and grandchildren and remained in the void (O. Slavnikova).
The narration in the novels of Olga Slavnikova, like that of Lyudmila Petrushevskaya, is conducted from the sidelines. The narrator starts now in one direction, then in another, again comes back, again and again in the listed circle, telling secondary details. The voice of the narrator contains different voices, points of view and opinions. In the finale of the novels, the narrator, as it were, sums up the results, unravels the ball of thread, as in a detective story.So, in the novel “Immortal” the main character Alexei Afanasyevich learns with great effort that he lives in another state, socialism has long been gone. This kind of view from the side of the narrator leads to some specific image or resolution of someone’s fate.
Olga Slavnikova in her prose “not only depicts a distorted“ everyday world ”of her primitive, insect-like heroes, but seeks to reflect the deformation of their consciousness” [9, p.35].
Gender inequality, the destruction of traditional family foundations aggravates, shows inside out the already intense social and gender struggle in the plot of Olga Slavnikova’s novels [10, 11]. In her novels, gender relations are built predominantly with female logic and origin. Men as gender are depicted as destroyers of family traditional foundations and are more susceptible to changes in the socio-political formation. Women strive to occupy niches in society that are not traditional for them; at best, they become breadwinners and “strongholds” of house-building.
Thus, the gender conflict in O. Slavnikova’s prose can be traced in the images, in the destruction of gender stereotypes, when the heroes do not meet the standards of behavior that are traditionally considered “male” or “female” in society. In love and family problems, this can be traced in the relationships of the heroes, in the problems of the destruction of the institution of the family and the rupture of relations. Olga Slavnikova builds the narrative in her novels as a view from the outside.The narrator reveals in the novels the substantial meaning, the total relationship between man and the world (V. Belinsky) and at the same time does not forget private life, where the narrative is based on the fate of an individual.

REFLECTION OF MOVEMENT IN ARCHITECTURE AND MECHANICS IN THE LANGUAGE OF PROSE OF ART NOUVEAU. The article covers novels of the 1920s-1930s. At the beginning of the XX century, the movement in fine arts and in literature particularly became not only subject-thematic and energetic phenomenon, but forms a free “non-classical paradigm” of creativity.Researchers of the literature of the beginning of the XX century pay much more attention to movement outside of architecture, in an open space (and, accordingly, “topos”), rather than inside a building. For example, in the works of A.Vaganova, Yu.Shantalina, the concept of “movement” corresponds primarily with the topos “road, path”. If we turn specifically to the “locus” of stairs, pipes and elevators in modern prose, it becomes obvious that they contribute to the understanding of not only movement in space, but also the ideological and artistic originality of works that are often mentioned (the novels “Moscow” by A.Bely, “Mashenka” by V. Nabokov, “We” by E.I. Zamyatin, “The Great Gatsby” by F.S. Fitzgerald). Thus, the masters of prose of the modern era, distinguished by “the fluidity” of forms in the arts, used not only the “unreal” dynamism of architectural loci (stairs, pipes, shafts, elevators), but also the factual one associated with mechanical movement. At the same time, the values of predicates that define actants associated with architectural locus depend on referential references (specific objects are reproduced – in Bely’s novel, the staircase in the Mandro mansion on Petrovka; the Long island mansion in Fitzgerald’s novel), and from suggestive connotations – intentionally or spontaneously actualized by writers: the staircase “scares” / “frighten”, which is especially scary with the agentive meaning of the verb, and “lifts’.The elevator can not only “get stuck”, but also “knock down”, “buzz down” (although buzz isn’t a verb of movement, but moves to an unreal space where you can see the sound), “slam”, groan (“groaned”). “The optimistic idea of movement, activity as the norm of human life” (A.K. Vaganova) tries, although unsuccessfully, to refute the idea of entropy, as it has been shown by the literature of the first third of the Xx century.

REFLEXION OF MOTION IN ARCHITECTURE AND MECHANICS IN THE LANGUAGE OF MODERN PROSE
At the beginning of the XX century.movement in art, in particular in literature, becomes not only thematic and energetic, but forms a free, “non-classical paradigm” of creativity. Researchers of the literature of the early XX century. much more attention is paid to movement outside of architecture, in open space (and, accordingly, toposes), and not inside the building. For example, in the works of A.K. Vaganova, Yu.A. Shantalina concept “movement” corresponds, first of all, toposes “road, path, path”. If we turn specifically to the loci of the staircase, pipe and elevator in modern prose, it becomes obvious that it is they who contribute to the comprehension of not only movement in space, but also the ideological and artistic originality of the works in which are often mentioned (the novels “Moscow” by A.Bely, “Mashenka” by V. Nabokov, “We” by E.I. Zamyatin, “The Great Gatsby” by F.S. Fitzgerald). Thus, the prose masters of the Art Nouveau era, distinguished by the “fluidity” of forms in all arts, used not only the “surreal” dynamism of architectural loci (stairs, pipes, shafts, elevators), but also the factual one associated with mechanical movement. At the same time, the meanings of the predicates defining actants associated with architectural loci depend both on referential references (specific objects are reproduced – in Bely’s novel, the staircase in the Mandro mansion on Petrovka; the Long Island mansion in Fitzgerald’s novel), and on suggestive connotations, intentionally or spontaneously actualized by writers: the staircase “scares”, which is especially scary with the agentive meaning of the verb, and “lifts”, the elevator can not only “get stuck”, “stand”, but also “knock”, “hum down” (although hum is not a verb movement, but moves to an unreal space where you can see the sound), “slap”, groan (“groaned”).“The optimistic idea of movement, activity as a norm of human life” (AK Vaganova) tries, albeit unsuccessfully, as the literature of the first third of the 20th century shows, to refute the idea of entropy.
Keywords: modern, modernist prose, surrealism, movement, locus, staircase, elevator.
Modernist prose pays close attention to movement. This is the main difference between the non-classical writing paradigm, formed in the era of the theory of relativity and the scientific and technological revolution.However, it is interesting that researchers of the literature of the early XX century. much more attention is paid to movement outside of architecture, in open space (and, accordingly, toposes), and not inside the building. For example, in the works of Yu.A. Shantalina presents the movement in Gumilev’s poetry, in the vocabulary that implements this concept: the road [1, p. 222], path, step, path [2, p. 10]. There is also movement in transport, for example, A.K. Vaganova (mainly on the example of Chekhov’s prose). If we turn specifically to the loci of stairs, pipes and elevators in modern prose, it becomes obvious that they contribute to the comprehension of not only movement in space, but also the ideological and artistic originality of the works in which they are often mentioned.At the beginning of the XX century. the category of movement is brought to the fore in architecture itself: “If in classical architecture the form is unchanged and valuable in itself, within the framework of the non-classical paradigm (the period of modernism) the emphasis falls on the process, the form becomes dynamic.
noah, there is a connection with time ”[3, p. 49]. Thus, the “fourth dimension” is already entering art everywhere, and “the fifth coordinate of life – the self-conscious soul” (A. Tarkovsky) is manifested.
“Many researchers of the style note that the staircase in the Art Nouveau mansion is always or almost always the vertical axis around which the composition of the building develops <...>, embodies the idea of duration, the flow of space-time, because here a fourth is added to the three dimensions of the architectural structure. – the time spent on both mental and real movement in the architectural space ”[4, p. 204]. The novel by A.White “Moscow”, where many loci of the staircase are associated with the staircase as a global symbol. In the novel Petersburg, written more than a decade and a half ago, movement was not a property, albeit surreal, of the staircase itself, but a cinematic play of chiaroscuro on it: “A dead ray <...> lay on gray steps <...>. Suddenly the moon lit up the staircase: in perfect darkness <.> Phosphorically burning spots “[5, p. 304]; “The staircase frightened him” [5, p. 305].90,000 The era of the late Paleolithic – the first life of modern people – history-thema.com History
Recently, we talked about what stages the history of mankind went through in the Paleolithic era – the ancient stone age, when people did not yet raise animals and did not grow edible plants, they lived exclusively on an appropriating economy: hunting, fishing, gathering, using tools made of stone. Now let’s talk in more detail about the general way of life of the Paleolithic people, that is, about how humanity lived absolutely most of its history in general.Yes, in comparison with the duration of the late Paleolithic era, when primitive people of the modern type already dominated the earth, the entire history of civilizations from Sumer to our electronic-technical age looks like only a small period of time. For tens of millennia, people were part of the surrounding virgin nature, were forced to follow its harsh laws, and about the events of the past they drew only information distorted by mysticism and speculation from tribal legends passed from mouth to mouth from generation to generation.
In this article, we will talk about the initial life of modern people who, according to genetic studies, appeared at least about 200 thousand years ago in East Africa, and about 40 thousand years ago began to actively settle around the world, including number in Europe, North Asia and North America, which then experienced a strong influence Wurm glaciation . The climate of the modern temperate latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere was then much colder than it is now. The north of Europe, including the area where the city of Moscow now stands, was hidden all year round under a thick shell of ice.In Siberia, oddly enough, the glacier covered only the polar regions. South of the glaciers to the mountain range stretching across the whole of Eurasia from the Pyrenees to the southern mountains of the Far East, vast areas of tundra-steppe stretched – endless grassy expanses similar to a tall grass steppe, where the sun was hot in summer (as in modern steppes), and in winter harsh and windy, similar to the Arctic , cold. A huge number of ungulates roamed these expanses, both similar to those that now live in the steppes and northern forests, and by the present era long extinct: mammoths, woolly rhinos, giant deer.They were hunted by predators hiding in rare copses: wolves, common and cave bears, cave lions and cave hyenas. And, of course, people. The meat of large ungulates obtained by collective hunting was the main food of the Paleolithic people. Behind the mountains to the south, the natural appearance was close to the modern one: steppes, savannas, broad-leaved and subtropical forests, which were further replaced by tropical and equatorial jungles, but the natural belts in relation to their present location were shifted to the equator.Settling from the warm regions of the planet to the north rich in large ungulates, people of the modern type began to share territory with those who lived in Europe and Asia since about half a million years BC. Neanderthals – a local species or subspecies of people, significantly different from them in appearance, biologically adapted for life in colder climates (for example, the Neanderthals had a large and wide nose, which contributed to good heating of the inhaled icy air of the winter tundra steppe). Previously, it was believed that the life of the Neanderthals was very primitive, in many ways it was similar to the flocking behavior of animals.However, recent studies have shown that, although the Neanderthal culture lagged somewhat behind the culture of people of the modern type, in their basic features, both cultures were similar. Both Neanderthals and modern Paleolithic people used the same tools, although modern people worked them more perfectly. Therefore, everything that concerns the everyday life of people of the modern type in the Paleolithic era can mainly refer to the Neanderthals.
The first studied settlement of primitive people of the modern type was located in the Cro-Magnon grotto near the French city of Le Eyzi-de-Taillac-Sireuil.It was discovered in 1868 by the paleontologist Louis Lartet. Its age is about 30 thousand years. In Cro-Magnon L. Larte discovered several skeletons of its inhabitants and a number of stone tools. By the name of the grotto, all modern Paleolithic people are often called Cro-Magnons. The inhabitants of the Cro-Magnon grotto had an anthropological type, which is not currently found, but certain features of which have been preserved in modern people of the Balkan-Caucasian subrace. These were people of Caucasian appearance, with rudely beautiful, not very sharp facial features.But the closest genetically to the very first people of the modern type, who lived more than one and a half hundred thousand years before the contemporaries of the inhabitants of Crom-Magnon, are the modern Khoisan peoples of South Africa: the Bushmen and Hottentots. By the way, some of their tribes, due to isolation among unsuitable for management savannas and deserts, still lead a lifestyle similar to the Paleolithic, and this isolation was the reason for the best preservation of the genotype of the distant ancestors of modern mankind. The Koisan peoples as a whole belong to the Negroid race, however, in their anthropological type, some Mongoloid features are also clearly visible, on the basis of which it can be assumed that the Negroid race is the most ancient, and other races stood out from it over the millennia as a result of the isolated existence of primitive human populations , which is why certain anthropological features were fixed in them.Indeed, in Europe, archaeologists sometimes find skulls dating back to the primitive era with pronounced Negroid features. Some researchers believe that the Caucasoid race originated from the mixing of the ancient people of the modern type who migrated to Europe and Western Asia with the Neanderthals who already lived there.
Since primitive people could not leave behind any written evidence of their history, historians obtain information about their way of life based on the study of archaeological finds and the study of the life of peoples whose culture is still at the primitive level.There are few peoples whose life is similar to the life of people of the Paleolithic era in our time: these are, first of all, individual tribes living in the remote arid regions of South Africa and Australia. Most of the other peoples living in a primitive way, in terms of the cultural level, already correspond to the people of the Neolithic – the New Stone Age, who knew how to breed domestic animals and grow the plants necessary for the economy. Despite many similarities, the way of life in the Paleolithic and Neolithic was still markedly different.
The lifestyle of many Bushmen tribes in South Africa still corresponds to the late Paleolithic era
Paleolithic people lived tribal communities , consisting of 20 – 30 people descended from one ancestor, usually along the female line (matrilineal community). Some researchers believe that the eldest woman in the family was also the head of the community, she was revered and obeyed as a mother, directly or through her children who gave life to all members of the community (matriarchy). However, in our time, the prevailing opinion is that in the Paleolithic era there was no pronounced domination of women or men in society, and the society of that time was characterized by the equality of its members.The youth equally respected and obeyed all the older members of the community as more experienced, both men and women. Nevertheless, archaeological finds in the form of statuettes carved from stone or sculpted from clay in the form of a woman, often naked, with sharply defined breasts and abdomen (clearly symbolizing motherhood), show that all the same, the Late Paleolithic people had a special attitude towards a woman, she was surrounded by exceptional reverence. It must be said that many peoples, especially those who have long retained the features of a primitive-clan way of life, even in the Middle Ages still retained vestiges of the primitive veneration of women.Even in the heyday of , the ancient Roman civilization , known for the actual lack of rights of women, her contemporaries were the ancient Germans, for whom the word of a mother or wife was sometimes law. The veneration of pagan female deities remained a “memory” of the past veneration of women among many peoples of the patriarchal era.
The tribal community resembled one very large family: all its members knew each other perfectly, lived under the same roof, ate the same food together, slept next to each other in the corresponding part of the dwelling, together they did all the household and other household chores.The concept of property was practically absent: all tools, clothing, food obtained, and other things belonged to the entire community, and they could be taken by any of its members who at the moment needed it more than others. Cohesion and collectivism were the most important guarantee of survival in the constant harsh and merciless struggle with nature. Everyone worked for the benefit of the entire community, and everyone worked together to protect every person of their kind. The hunter who had caught the game brought it to the dwelling, where it was cooked and divided at a meal as needed: more pieces for children, sick people, who needed constant support for the miners.For their work, no one received more remuneration than the usual verbal praise, however, everyone already understood that his own survival in the harsh conditions of that time depended on diligence and perseverance. This system of social organization is called primitive communism . As a rule, there were no harsh punishments for violations of the unwritten customs by which the family lived: everyone knew that without the support of the community, friendship and order in the harsh world around them, it was impossible to survive, therefore, rarely anyone broke the rules that had developed in the family.So, among the Bushmen tribes living now in South Africa, the only punishment for the offender (as a rule, it is the one who is lazy when performing work) is demonstratively mocking imitation of the entire community of his behavior. Serious conflict situations within the genus were rare in the Paleolithic era. A malicious disobedient to the decisions of the community or its senior members could be expelled if they believed that his behavior upsetting community discipline was worse than the loss of extra labor. Common interests were put above personal ones.In some tribes, to this day, a person who killed a relative is subjected only to symbolic shame and condemnation: the murder of one of the community members at the hands of another is the loss of one pair of working hands, the execution or expulsion of the killer is the loss of another.
Tribal communities settled most often in natural shelters: caves, grottoes, rock shelters, and where there were no natural stone shelters, in river gullies on the shore. Primitive people themselves built dwellings: wide tents and dugouts from animal skins stretched out on poles, as well as tusks and mammoth bones.In the caves, a person settled in the widest – the entrance part, avoiding settling in the depths of the cave corridors: it is cold, damp, the smoke from the fire will not be able to freely leave, and in the event of a collapse, people who find themselves in the depths of the cave may be walled up. It is possible that in the depths of the caves, people stored food supplies like in a refrigerator. To protect from bad weather, people erected a barrier made of branches in front of the entrance to the rock shelter. The dwelling could be conditionally or even somehow delimited into several parts: a sleeping place near the fire, a refectory, a workshop where tools were made, a prayer corner where religious cults of that time were held.Of course, a dwelling inhabited by people, whether it was even a cave or a stone canopy, was different from its modern look, unearthed by archaeologists – sullen and damp, just as a dwelling house differs from a long abandoned one. As already mentioned, the cave was protected from the weather by a barrier erected from branches, the earthen floor in the cave was covered with dry grass and soft skins, a hot fire was cheerfully burning and crackling in a hearth made of flat stones, and under its flames, bizarre looking cave vaults sounded live voices and songs.Someone knocked stones in the “workshop”, making flint knives, choppers, spearheads, etc., someone roasted fragrant meat over a fire. Children played or helped adults with housework, the elderly sat on the seats, embroidered from skins and stuffed with soft grass, and told entertaining memories from their lives, legends from the depths of the long past, but no different from the present. The dwellings were usually not permanent and were temporary sites, since people migrated after the herds of ungulates, which served them as their main food.
There was a division of labor: the hardest work went to men, the most painstaking to women. Men hunted and built dwellings, women collected edible plants and other small food, kept the fire in the hearth, cooked food, kept the dwelling clean and tidy, and sewed clothes using bone needles. Children helped adults, performed household chores within their power. However, the ratio of the number of men to women in the community could vary greatly: more boys are born than girls, while men are more likely to die from accidents, such as hunting.Therefore, if necessary, women and men could substitute for each other: a woman herself could get not very large game, a man could cook dinner or clean up the house. The tools were probably actively manufactured by both men and women. In different communities, there could be different orders as to whose business it is more: male or female. The main material for making tools was flint and related stones, for example, quartz. When struck by a harder object, such stones are easily crushed into fairly strong plate-like lobes.From such flat and thin fragments of flint and other such minerals, primitive people, through diligent sharpening, made the tools they needed. Flint tools have an important advantage: they practically do not dull, which was important in the absence of fine sharpening tools. True, due to its crystalline structure, flint quickly breaks, but this was compensated by its abundance in nature. Products from other stone rocks are also found in archaeological excavations of the Paleolithic, but much less often: the processing of harder rocks at that time required special skill and perseverance.With the help of flint, which gives sparks when some other stones hit it (and in our time – and iron), primitive man, apparently, also produced fire. Fire was an absolutely integral part of human survival in the wild: dwellings were heated with open fire, food was cooked on fire, fiery torches illuminated the path at night, scared off dangerous animals, and also drove prey to the right places when hunting. Knife blades and spearheads, cutters, drills, saws, skin scrapers, and punctures were made of stone.People used stone tools to work wood and bone, from which they made thinner utensils: dishes, handles for knives and spears, needles, as well as objects of worship. Bony spearheads are sometimes found.
Tools of the Late Paleolithic
The farm was exclusively appropriating. The basis of the diet of the Paleolithic people was the meat of large ungulates. So, in the Caucasus, the main object of hunting in the Ancient Stone Age was a primitive bison – a wild bull, the ancestor of modern bison and American bison.Men of the genus went out to hunt for large prey collectively. Some hid in ambush, some drove a herd towards them. When the animals ran past the hunters hiding on the leeward side, they suddenly jumped out and killed the nearest buffalo, deer or tarpan (wild horse) with quick blows of their spears. After that, the booty was cut with stone knives and choppers on the spot, chopped into pieces and carried in pieces to the dwelling. Hunting for mammoths was especially difficult and dangerous, but if successful, it was rewarded a hundredfold: such prey could be eaten for weeks if the meat was properly preserved.It was also practiced collective selection of prey from predatory animals using long spears. There was also a hunt by the method of concealment: the hunter approached the animal from the leeward side, taking advantage of the fact that many ungulates are very short-sighted. However, such a hunt was more dangerous: the animal could trample a single hunter, running away, or even attack him. Smaller prey were killed with throwing spears – javelins, and archaeologists find special wooden devices for a longer throw of a spear – spear throwers.Some communities used bows, which made it possible to hunt small animals, for example, birds, in the event of a shortage of large animals. However, in general, the bow in the Paleolithic is still a rather rare tool.
A person, of course, could not eat only meat: in addition to proteins, the human body needs vitamins and carbohydrates, and the hunt was not always successful, and herds of wild ungulates could go to places inaccessible to people or die out from epizootics. An important role in the primitive economy was played by gathering, which was carried out mainly by women and children.In meadows and forests, primitive people collected mushrooms , berries, edible herbs and roots, tree fruits: wild fruits and nuts, acorns, cones of large conifers. Large invertebrates (locusts, snails), frogs and reptiles also went for food: the harsh conditions of life closely related to wildlife made people a little choosy about food. In the dwelling, high-calorie meals were prepared on stone hearths or wooden skewers from the meat of game hunted by hunters, plants and mushrooms collected by women and children, which were necessary to maintain strength in a difficult natural life.
People of the Paleolithic made clothes from the skins of animals obtained from hunting. The skins were dried, cut out with stone incisors, then with the help of bone needles and animal veins or strong fibers of wild plants they were sewn, giving the desired shape. It can be assumed that the clothing of the Paleolithic population of the temperate latitudes was similar to the traditional clothing of most of the indigenous peoples of Siberia and North America.
Aesthetic ideas were not at all alien to primitive people. From wood, strong grasses, veins, teeth and bones of animals, feathers of birds, they made various decorations that they wore, dyed clothes with natural dyes.Having obtained a permanent paint, they painted the walls of the caves in which they lived. Rock paintings have survived only in very few places, for example, in the Altamira cave in Spain (there are the first of the studied drawings of primitive people, discovered by an amateur archaeologist Marcelino de Sautuola and his 9-year-old daughter). Moisture constantly condenses on the rocks, they themselves gradually crumble and crumble under the influence of temperature changes, so any rock paintings are poorly preserved. And most of the inscriptions so often left by tourists in our time like “Gena and Lena were here”, with the hope “for centuries”, actually disappear under the influence of natural factors, if not in the first years, then within a couple of decades.And the preservation of primitive images was facilitated by the fact that they were still in a more closed place – in caves, therefore they were not so prone to erosion and washing out. In the wall paintings of his rocky dwellings, primitive man often depicted the surrounding nature associated with his life: animals, as well as people hunting them. There are finds of rocky outcrops inside the caves, which were obviously sculpted by a human hand to resemble animals. Based on the data from the study of the traditions of modern peoples with a primitive culture, it is believed that many images have a sacred meaning.So, in some tribes, before the hunt, it is customary to depict the expected prey, after which each hunter symbolically strikes the image with a spear. There it is believed that it brings good luck on the hunt. Many jewelry are also in fact cult objects, for example, amulets, which, according to their owners, protect from illness or misfortune. However, one should not discount the fact that primitive people also experienced a sense of beauty, and they could draw something simply because they liked it.
Tribal communities that lived in relative proximity to one another, spoke the same language and, as a rule, had a distant common origin, constituted a tribe. Communities of one tribe, realizing their kinship, could conduct some common affairs on the tribal territory, support each other in a difficult matter. Boys who had reached puberty from their home community went to another community of their tribe, settled there and took on a constant life companion. This made it possible to avoid closely related relationships fraught with degeneration of the offspring.Some tribes, and currently leading a primitive lifestyle, lack the institution of marriage: on certain days, men and women of the tribe indiscriminately indulge in amorous pleasures, after which the tribal communities collectively raise the children born, often without bothering to find out exactly who and from whom the child was born. However, such an extreme, even for a Paleolithic society, is rather an exception. In most tribes, there was a concept of marriage, although it is somewhat simpler than in our time: each member of the community, be it a man or a woman, had sexual intercourse with the same partner.This made it possible to avoid sexual competition within the community. The chastity of the younger members of the clan was watched over by its elders. Children were brought up basically also collectively by the whole community, although due to a certain personal affection, the parents could devote a little more time to them than other relatives.
As such, the institutions of power were absent from the Paleolithic people. Each community decided its affairs at a general discussion, in which both men and women participated, and it is likely that older children who already understand the issue under discussion will also.The tribal elders were involved in organizational activities. Probably, they also solved common tribal affairs at meetings with the elders of other tribal communities of the tribe. Of course, there were also just smart, talented people who enjoyed general authority, to whom they listened, with whom not only relatives, but also members of other clans consulted. The ministers of primitive cults (who were often concurrently also healers-healers) also enjoyed unconditional authority. However, it is too early to talk about the real institution of tribal leaders in the Paleolithic: almost the entire life of the people of that time consisted of economic affairs, even not related to primitive politics, and the leaders were simply not needed.The people of the Paleolithic are often thought of as harsh, brave and ruthless warriors, constantly fighting either with wild animals or with foreign tribes. In many respects, this idea was promoted by the literary work of J. Roni the Elder “The Struggle for Fire”, based on the notions of a primitive society widespread in the 19th century, when scientific research on the primitive way of life was practically not carried out at all. The idea of the Paleolithic people as warlike and cruel tribes arose as a result of the fact that the first theoreticians, without deep criticism, tried to draw an analogy between them and modern primitive tribes, most of which have a way of life that is not characteristic of the Paleolithic, but of the Neolithic.In the Neolithic, when the manufacturing economy began to develop, and with it such vices of humanity as greed and indifference, intertribal aggression also spread: people began to take away from each other, for what to fight with each other. However, this is not typical of the Paleolithic: in the Paleolithic, a person was entirely dependent on changes in environmental conditions, did not produce anything except stone tools, which any community could make itself in excess, and the difficult life, everyday struggle with nature did not leave time for inter-tribal wars.The people of the Paleolithic are rather peaceful hunters and gatherers like the current Bushmen tribes. Of course, sometimes there were clashes between tribes that did not share, for example, a convenient hunting ground, but this was more the exception than the rule. Not that the tribe, even each separate tribal community lived in a sufficiently wide area where it was possible to get the required amount of food, with other communities, and even more so, tribes, did not often contact. When food resources became limited (for example, there was a massive death of animals – the main objects of hunting), part of the tribe or community said goodbye to their relatives and left to look for a new place of residence in the wild, immense distance, since the high mortality rate nowhere has the population constant, and always one could find unoccupied grounds full of herds of buffalo, deer, and wild horses.
So, people of the modern type in the Paleolithic, as a rule, did not fight with each other. But with the Neanderthals in Europe and Western Asia, until they died out or assimilated among them, they clashed quite often. Probably, modern people and Neanderthals, having very different psychologies, did not understand each other well, perhaps they did not always see each other as similar and were considered competitors for prey and hunting grounds. Moreover, it happened that both of them did not just kill each other: both at the sites of modern people and at Neanderthal archaeologists more than once found human bones of the opposite type with traces of the teeth of the owners of the dwelling.That is, modern humans and Neanderthals happened to eat each other. Remnants of Paleolithic sites are also known, where in the older – the lower layer of the soil, traces of the life of Neanderthals were found, above – that is, in a not so old layer, traces of the life of people of the modern type were found, even higher – again of the Neanderthals, and in the latest layer – again modern people. Presumably, people of the modern type, having come to these lands, drove out the Neanderthals who lived here before, but they could not fix it, and after a while the Neanderthals expelled them from there and restored their dominance in their former place.However, then modern people launched another offensive and again expelled the Neanderthals for good. Although it is possible that, on the contrary, in this area, Neanderthals coexisted peacefully with modern people, therefore they alternately occupied the same convenient parking place: after all, for a long time in the same place primitive man did not live, constantly moving behind herds of wild animals. It is possible that after the next season of migration of animals, returning to their former habitat, the Neanderthals simply took some other place, and modern people settled in their former dwelling.Then – on the contrary, and so on. Genetic studies show that modern Paleolithic people actively entered into marriages with Neanderthals: Neanderthal genes are present in every 4-6 representatives of the Caucasian and Mongoloid races. They are completely absent only in Negroids, and this is understandable: Neanderthals did not live in Africa.
Reason, dexterous hands, collectivism in every matter allowed the human race not to be suppressed, despite the cruel laws of nature in which people had to survive.However, the mortality rate among the people of the Stone Age was very high. There were no cures for diseases, healers could only heal with medicinal herbs and psychological techniques that supported the morale of a sick person. Most adult males have died as a result of hunting injuries, although there are also remains of people over fifty. The scarcity of human settlement prevented the spread of deadly epidemics, however, frequent fluctuations in air temperature, sharp weather changes characteristic of especially temperate latitudes of the Ice Age were the cause of dangerous colds.Periodically, primitive people were visited by famine, when wild animals died out from diseases or went to inaccessible places, and drought or late spring frosts ruined edible plants. Settling among the rocks, people died from landslides, slipped on narrow paths into gorges, froze, taken by surprise by a snow blizzard, especially when due to snow drifts it became impossible to get to the dwelling. Of course, primitive man was much better able to find a way out of critical situations in nature than people of our day, but his adaptive capabilities were not unlimited.The infant mortality rate was especially high. Infants and children of the first years of life died from hypothermia, hunger, disease so often that sometimes they were not even considered as full-fledged members of human society: it is still not known whether they will survive or not. Some peoples with a semi-primitive culture almost until our time had infanticide – the killing of babies in hungry years so that there were no extra eaters. Even in the societies of a number of ancient civilizations , this custom existed: the ancient Spartans left crippled babies to die in the gorge, and the Romans simply took out children who were born inappropriately somewhere to a public place, hoping that suddenly someone else needed them, without thinking about that if the child does not find a new owner, he will die.
In a primitive society, where every extra workforce was very important, the surviving children grew up socially very quickly. From an early age, they first helped adults with what they had the strength to do, then they did easier work on their own. Children could successfully hunt for not too agile small game or fish, like women, collect edible plants, and help adult men carry equipment when hunting. At that time, the personal example of the senior members of the community, participation, whenever possible, in their work was the basis of the upbringing of children.Therefore, children who were able to seriously help with household chores, that is, from 8 to 10 years old, were generally perceived as equal members of the community, and household matters were discussed with them. Children behaved at ease with adults, could play with the elders of the clan. Of course, due to their age, they were looked after, and protected from dangerous affairs, and caressed, and shamed for disobedience, but the idea that “there is no place for little ones”, “children still don’t understand”, “it’s too early for children”, did not exist in the Paleolithic.
The Palaeolithic people considered the surrounding nature as a natural habitat.Often they animated all objects and phenomena around: they believed that plants, stones, water bodies, rain and wind are also living things (animism). Although primitive people were aware that they still differ from animals in reason, nevertheless, they often endowed animals with human traits. They believed that animals live their own conscious life, according to their laws poorly guided by people, they can be friends and enmity. From these ideas, tales about animals, which are widespread among all peoples, have survived to this day.It happened that entire tribes, who did not retain the personalities of their ancestors in their memory, believed that they descended from some kind of animals, and revered animals of this species. Such beliefs related to totemism are still common among many peoples who are still living in a primitive state, or have recently emerged from it. Their relic is also the symbolism in the culture of many peoples in relation to any animal, as, for example, the bear is considered the national symbol of the Slavs, the tiger – the peoples of Hindustan.
Approximately nine and a half thousand years ago, the last ice age on earth ended.The climate has become much warmer and more humid. Large areas of steppes and tundra-steppes were occupied by overgrown forests, which greatly reduced the number of large ungulates – the main food of the Paleolithic people. Many of them (mammoths, giant deer) were eventually “finished off” by primitive hunters. To survive, people had to rebuild and complicate their economy. Among people of the modern type, onions have spread, with the help of which it became possible to catch small game. The Neanderthals, whose culture lagged significantly behind the culture of modern people, could not adapt to the changes that had come and died out or were forced to join the communities of people of the modern type and assimilated among them.People of the modern type, in order to always keep a constant source of food with them, began to domesticate animals. And then, having learned to use those droppings as fertilizer, they began to grow edible plants. manufacturing economy appeared , mankind entered the Neolithic era.
