We all know what consciousness means, right? And to demonstrate the truth of that, here are 9 pithy quotes about consciousness by some pretty smart people.

“It is often held therefore (1) that a mind cannot help being constantly aware of all the supposed occupants of its own private stage, and (2) that it can also deliberately scrutinize by a species of non-sensuous perception at least some of its own states and operations. Moreover, both this constant awareness (generally called ‘consciousness’), and this non-sensuous inner perception (generally called ‘introspection’) have been supposed to be exempt from error.

Gilbert Ryle, ‘The Concept of Mind’, 1949

Read 8 more quotes in the slides.

You’re not going to get anywhere in Human Design if you’re not conscious.

In terms of being conscious, which one of these quotes from brilliant people are you going to follow?

When I first saw that I had Power View and Personal Transference, I had no way to relate to it. Seeing things in terms of winners and losers sounded silly to me. Like a foreign word, it made no sense to me. I’ve never consciously looked at myself and said, “Oh yes, I am powerful.” Or “Oh yes, I am a winner.”

But then as I thought more about my past, I realized I did know what this was about: In my late 20s and early 30s, I’d been reading quite a few of the Don Juan books by Carlos Castaneda and he talked a lot about personal power. What it was, why it was necessary, how to acquire it, and how to use it.

I saw that, unlike me, many people couldn’t present themselves to the world with confidence, with belief in their abilities, or with intent. They weren’t comfortable with themselves; they were insecure and unable to accept and learn from their mistakes.

Not only did they not understand their strengths, weaknesses, or emotions, but it se of looking at themselves with any objectivity had never crossed their minds. Complete lack of self-awareness.

Keep reading this story in the slides.

Do you relate to this in terms of your own View and Transference View?

Back when I was 26, during the time of my short-lived first marriage, my first wife and I were living in a large, 3-bedroom house in La Jolla, California with our 5-month-old daughter. The house had a very large basement and a huge grassy yard that was fenced all around.

We rented the 2 extra bedrooms to a friend of ours; a single mom with a 3-year-old girl named Bridget. She was a real cutie with dark tight little curls all over her head, BIG blue eyes, and a very serious demeanor. She was quite a well-behaved child, but even so she was 3 years old and, well, you know, toddlers have accidents.

The basement had 2 half walls with waist-high windows wrapped around in an L shape which brought in a lot light with a nice view of the yard. It was my man-cave, so I had a lot of “man things” in it – my guitar, a great stereo setup, and a very eclectic collection of albums. This was where I went to get stoned, listen to the music I liked, play guitar, sculpt, draw, read or do whatever suited me, free of interruptions.

It had a long L-shaped workbench beneath the windows for various projects, and being a workbench, it had lots of tools, parts, glues, brushes, pens, inks, paints, and assorted bits of this and that. It wasn’t particularly neat or well organized, and it was no place for a child.

I typically started my day by going down into the basement and smoking a small pipe of excellent hash. Then I would go out into the yard, lay down on the grass, soak up the warm SoCal sun and just drift with the frequency of the day. I could smell the grass, feel the light breezes, and hear the birds. Very soothing. Then I would return to the basement to pursue whatever activity I was called to.

The story of Bridget continues in the slides.

Your expression can vary depending on who you’re with and the situation you’re in. Every once in a while embrace this adaptability instead of seeing it as inconsistency.

For someone with an undefined Throat Center, aligning with these behaviors means you are moving in harmony with your design. You won’t feel as pressured to be the loudest in the room, instead you’ll find a sense of peace and authenticity in expressing yourself when it feels right.

These, BTW, are not rules, just possibilities to explore and experiment with if you are so inclined.

Do you have an undefined Throat Center?

I was a guest on a podcast a while back with Rebecca who has a very individual take on Human Design.

For those of you who don’t know her, she’s quite entertaining in a very unique way. She’s a bit of a rebel and, with 7 centers defined, a real bundle of energy.

Can you relate to my story in the slides about being a Projector in the workplace? You might be interested in Hexagram 36 in the I Ching:

HEXAGRAM 36 - DARKENING OF THE LIGHT

THE JUDGMENT

One must not unresistingly let himself be swept along by unfavorable circumstances, nor permit his steadfastness to be shaken. He can avoid this by maintaining his inner light” …. remaining outwardly yielding and tractable. With this attitude, he can overcome even the greatest adversities.

In some situations, indeed a man must hide his light, in order to make his will prevail in spite of difficulties in his immediate environment.

Perseverance must dwell in the inmost consciousness and should not be discernible from without. Only thus is a man able to maintain his will in the face of difficulties.

THE IMAGE

The light has sunk into the earth: Thus does the superior man live with the great mass: He veils his light, yet still shines.

In a time of darkness, it is essential to be cautious and reserved. One should not needlessly awaken overwhelming enmity by inconsiderate behavior. In such times one ought not to fall in with the practices of others; neither should one drag them censoriously into the light. In social in*******se, one should not try to be all-knowing. One should let many things pass, without being duped.

SIX IN THE FIFTH PLACE MEANS:

Darkening of the light as with Prince Chi.
Perseverance furthers.

Prince Chi lived at the court of the evil tyrant Chou Hsin …... Prince Chi was a relative of the tyrant and could not withdraw from the court; therefore, he concealed his true sentiments and feigned insanity……... To escape danger, they need invincible perseverance of spirit and redoubled caution in their dealings with the world.

I'd love to hear your workplace story related to your design.

More and more I embody ever more completely my design. The more I understand and embrace my design, the more I understand the world around me. I align myself so that my everyday living more closely reflects the underlying pattern of my design. I can speak the truth of my experience of my design, based on my understanding of Human Design itself.

Do we share any of the same chart elements? Do you resonate with the snippets in the slides? LMK in the comments.

Manifestor children, especially those with Ego Authority, get the most conditioning away from their decision-making authority, more than any other Type, because the Collective doesn’t want willful children. Here’s a story about our Manifestor child:

Long before I knew about Human Design, our first son Mica was born on the Big Island of Hawaii. Mica is a 2/4 Emotional Manifestor through Channel 12-22 – Openness, Social Options. He was a serious child, always carefully studying his world. When he was 5, he asked, “Was God born before or after he wanted to be?” Blew my mind! It was actually a very profound question as it implies recognition of no choice or choice.

Mica started his education enrolled in preschool at a Waldorf school but switched to a small public school in the tiny town of Pahoa, Hawaii. It was an old-fashioned kindergarten through 12th grade school totaling only about 300 students in a community of mostly local agricultural workers and a large contingent of hippies.

He wasn’t being challenged at the Pahoa school. Every day he was given pictures to color which he did beautifully at first but eventually he started just scrawling cr haphazardly across the page – he was so bored.

Read the slides!

The thing about schools is that they are designed to homogenize kids. It would be impossible to educate kids if they were all just wandering around doing their own thing. And, like it or not, the Collective has a substantial stake in determining what students learn so, of course, they set the curriculum. We lucked out with Mrs. Estabrook seeing the person and not just the curriculum.

Let me know if you can relate. I’d love to hear your stories.

When I took the Human Design Basic Training course in 1999, the material approved by Ra for the meanings of the planets is shown at the top of slide 2. Personally, I find the descriptions vague, ridiculously reductionist, and challenging to work into a reading.

A few weeks after the Basic Class, I took The Analyst Training Class and bought Ra's first teaching book, The Book of Letters. And in that book, he had taken a very different direction in his description of the Planets as shown at the bottom of slide 2.

Ra included a couple of paragraphs describing his views, which I quote:

“In design, the Definition is the student, the Undefined Centers are the school, and the Planets are the teachers. They each inform by their capacity to filter the neutrino stream and affect us directly in the altering of this information.”

“Each planet has a different style of teaching, and each specializes in different material. While Mercury, the teacher, is rushing through a course in communications, Saturn, the teacher, is plodding along in a course on restraint or discipline.”

When I read the two sets together, they seem considerably different in meaning.

For example, in the Human Design Training, HD BASIC MERCURY is what must be communicated; while in the Book of Letters, Mercury is teaching a course in COMMUNICATION. I see a huge difference.

Read the slides for the comparison on each planet and my observations.

Any insights? Thanks for sharing!

According to Ra, "all things related to design and their mechanics are simply structural." Enjoy these thought-provoking Ra quotes about COLOR, MOTIVATION, and SURFACE.

Ra made much of the concept of the binary universe, which comprises two different aspects of the same situation.

If we look at the universe as a duality of equal and opposing opposites, then the schism is made whole.

Yin and Yang are constantly moving, with each one becoming the other over time.

I think the task in life is to recognize and accept the coexistence of all parts of myself as a cohesive whole.

I am This and That but sometimes I am more This than That, and sometimes both This and That in the same moment.

Any insights? Please share yours in the comments.

3 Important Things in Human Design

Seeing the Whole Picture

After getting my Human Design license, I kept studying. I attended ongoing classes, listened to more talks, and read more materials for years. I typically get things fairly quickly, but Human Design was a bit trickier. I went all in, writing about every aspect of the system and trying to apply it in my daily life.

My understanding of the system greatly improved when I began to see the "whole picture." We're not just packages of discrete behaviors; we're each a whole person. Every element of our design affects every other element. They are all interconnected, making us who and how we are.

If you’re new to Human Design, you may find these 3 things useful:

1️⃣ Study Your Behavior Strategies

You may find the best way to learn Human Design is to really focus on yourself. Study your own chart and observe your conscious behavior strategies. Test the information and look for the subtleties. As you become more aware of the different behavior strategies in your design, you’ll start to see the continuity of it all.

2️⃣ Observe Your Type and Profile

You’ll also start to see how your Type and Profile flavor these behavior strategies; for example, being a 4/6 Projector is very different from being a 4/6 Manifestor. You’ll eventually see how your Type guides WHAT you would do and your Profile HOW you would do it. Occasionally, you’ll get to observe your Profile in action.

3️⃣ Trust Your Design

Once you have integrated enough Human Design into your self-narrative, you may realize you have to make a choice. Can you trust your design? How much? When should you trust it? Is it actually you? I had to grapple with all these questions.

I have the 17-62 Channel of Acceptance, which means I can only support what I can truly accept. So, I have to formulate my logical understanding into personal opinions, express them, and share them with others. That's when I can truly accept it. What's amazing is that I didn't HAVE to do all of that. MY DESIGN DID IT FOR ME. Honestly, I didn't fully understand how it all worked at the time.

So, here's the question: Do you trust your design? Why?

“Only Human Design analysts of your same Type can guide you.”

Is that true? Well, as with so many things, the answer is not a simple yes or no. A seriously considered answer, however, is bound to be weighted on the side of “NOT TRUE.”

There are an awful lot of HD analysts who, regardless of their Type, simply aren’t objectively very good at what they do, and most people seeking guidance don’t really have enough knowledge about the Human Design System to enable them to choose a competent analyst who can guide any of the other Types. Just because someone is the same Type doesn’t necessarily mean they are any good at all.

If you are looking for someone to guide you in HD then, by definition, you don’t know much about it yourself – at least with respect to what you think you could know. So, your choice is kind of by the “luck of the draw”. It’s the same when you choose a mechanic or a dentist.

Also, how do you judge that analyst who is your “Type” after studying with them for a while? If you disagree with what they say, does that mean they are wrong?

Maybe not. Maybe they know something you don’t know. It’s quite possible, as far as you know, that a specific person whom you found disappointing is considered really great by others of all “Types.”

These kinds of sweeping statements based on one or two experiences that weren’t satisfactory can’t even be statistically true. I’ve seen all of the HD “Types” make this claim. I’ve never heard or read Ra say such a thing.

Be sure to read the slides.

Your thoughts? Please share.

We seem to easily conflate the terms subconscious and unconscious, yet they mean something very different, and the differences are important. I've been thinking about how common words are often brought into some discipline which then slightly changes the meaning of those words. I thought it would be interesting to look at 3 slightly different disciplines and how each one uses the terms UNCONSCIOUS and SUBCONSCIOUS.

I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN - ESPECIALLY THE TERM UNCONSCIOUS IN HUMAN DESIGN.

✨MODERN PHILOSOPHY:

Subconscious and unconscious are terms that occupy complex spaces within our understanding of the mind. The subconscious refers to those thoughts and feelings we can access, albeit indirectly or with some difficulty, via introspection or psychoanalytic techniques. Unconscious, on the other hand, refers to mental processes inaccessible to our conscious mind and are largely automatic.

In the realm of philosophy, these concepts pose existential questions. If we're unable to perceive aspects of our thoughts and feelings, how does that shape our personal identity? Can we claim to have free will if our unconscious mind shapes our behaviors without our direct awareness?

✨THEORETICAL PHYSICS:

Looking at the mind from a physicist's perspective, the subconscious and unconscious could be seen as the result of different states of neural network interactions. The unconscious could be akin to background processes in a computer – they’re essential for its functioning but are generally unnoticeable unless something goes wrong. The subconscious, in contrast, could be compared to minimized programs or files saved on a hard drive – not immediately apparent, but can be accessed with some effort.

Just as the principles of quantum mechanics describe particles' behavior that's counterintuitive to our macroscopic experience, the unconscious and subconscious contain thoughts, ideas, or associations that seem alien or counterintuitive to our conscious mind, but nonetheless play a crucial role in our mental processes.

✨NEURAL BIOLOGY:

From a biological standpoint, subconscious and unconscious processes could correspond to different areas and activities within the brain. The unconscious brain, which controls automatic processes like breathing and instinctual responses, might be linked to primitive brain areas, like the brainstem and the amygdala.

Subconscious processes, such as memories or thoughts that we can recall with some effort, might involve more complex neural networks spanning the hippocampus (associated with memory) and the prefrontal cortex (associated with planning and decision-making). Possibly more closely associated with our self-narrative (a distributed complex) rather than just specific areas of the brain.

In that view, the subconscious and unconscious are not so much different 'types' of thought, but rather reflections of the brain's hierarchical structure, with lower levels controlling automatic, unconscious processes, and higher levels dealing with complex, potentially subconscious thoughts.

I prefer the Neural Biological view; that they correspond to different brain areas and processes, reflecting the hierarchical structure of our neural architecture.

Each perspective provides a unique lens through which to explore these mysterious aspects of human consciousness that may produce inaccurate information.

The Sphinx has been with us since ancient times and has often been cast as a creature that devours those who cannot correctly answer her/his riddle. Oedipus bested the Sphinx by recognizing that the answer was “man”. Oedipus can therefore be recognized as a "liminal" or threshold figure, helping effect the transition between the old religious practices (cultural norms) represented by the death of the Sphinx and the rise of the new Olympian gods (cultural norms).

This riddle persists in all times and in all cultures and can be reduced to “What is man and where is he going?” This is, essentially the storyline, the energy that accompanies them everywhere. Every person who comes into your aura faces the question, “Who are you and where are you going?”

Again, this question is presented by their aura to everyone who comes into it. “What is your story” they, the Sphinx, ask of their world. They are the timeless riddle that people ponder. Without them doing anything, people are drawn to look at them, to wonder about them, and to therefore wonder about themselves. To ask themselves, where am I going? When the Sphinx feels secure in their own knowledge, they can answer those people.

The Sphinx offers guidance to others based on logic – secure patterns for the future – and their own experience. This doesn’t mean the Sphinx has to take charge of them, they are naturally designed to point the way and offer encouragement.

Simply by being, the Sphinx offers others the possibility of transformation from the old to the new. To those who merit it, the Sphinx is willing to offer guidance, to explain their own direction and why they aim for it. As long as they stay true to their type and authority, then the Sphinx’s direction will always be right for them and their world.

Do you have this cross? Or do you know someone with this cross?

I'll be posting a longer version of the Cross of the Sphinx on my blog soon (link in bio).

I sometimes remember this hexagram when I'm struggling with something in myself that I no longer feel is serving me well.

As an example: Some years ago I realized that I understood my stepfather-in-law (whom I thoroughly disliked) through Human Design quite well. I got him. I saw his perfection as himself. I also realized I still didn’t like him. That felt odd, but I was OK with it. After all, I don't have to like everybody. That's not my job in this world.

As the years went on, he periodically did things to me that made me dislike him even more, and I wasted a lot of time and energy over the years because of my dislike.

Recently, I got a clear image of how the energy dynamic works:

Often our dislike of someone starts out kind of mild, but then when we first realize we don't like them, we feel a touch guilty about it because we're taught that disliking another is not the best thing to do. Countless bromides about this: e.g., walk a mile in their shoes, put yourself in their place, don't take it personally, etc.

Suddenly this “awkward” feeling of guilt begins to nag at us just below the surface of our awareness and we start to justify and explain our dislike by imagining a scenario that may be reality-based or just as likely something we make up that allows us to judge the other unkindly.

Pretty soon that other person looms over us in our mind and we battle that person internally in all kinds of scenarios. The more we fight, the more energy we pump into this shadowy relationship.

It all happens because our mind tells us we ‘shouldn’t” dislike the person. And we keep feeding energy into that. And the more energy we feed into it, the more guilt we feel because we do dislike them, so the more energy we must expend to justify our dislike.

We do the same thing to ourselves when we see some behavior or belief system inside us that we don’t like or don’t want. We expend a lot of energy judging ourselves for that behavior and we try to get rid of it. All of which feeds the behavior because every behavior in us is alive and does NOT want to die.
