What happened to me in this process is that I took the dualistic trail; I'm a dualist. On one side, there is the mystery of the Design Crystal. It is truly an incredible thing, the way in which the form principle unfolds. And on the other side, is this incredible cosmic joke, the Personality Crystal, the way in which it filters the nature of being, the way in which it is framed to experience what we call existence. The Design and the Personality are not at all alike. And you only truly begin to see that, deeply begin to see that when you go beneath the level of the Line.
The moment that you go beneath the level of Line, you begin to see that these are very different things, and that they operate in very different ways. It's like Color. Not everybody knows what Color is. Color is the first level beneath the Line. There is this assumption that if you understand the Color—oh, you've got a 6th Color—what does that mean, and where is it, I would like to know because the Color that you have on the Personality side is totally different from the Color you have on the Design side. They're different and they operate within a different context.
The deeper that I went on these dual tracks, the more I began to understand something about what Human Design is predicated on. It's predicated on transformation of the form. No transformation of the form, no transformation of the consciousness. No transformation of the form, no potential for awareness. No transformation of the form, you can kiss concepts like enlightenment goodbye because everything about what it is for us to be here begins with these vehicles.
They're the gift, after all. This is an incredibly evolved mechanism, what it is capable of is absolutely astonishing. And when you think about the billions and billions of things that are going on in your body right now, billions of things going on, all this incredible activity and all of this stuff is coordinated, and we actually seem to be able to be here, solid, cute, looking at the world.
We have no idea how all this stuff works. We take it all for granted. We have been so ignorant about how profound this mechanism really is. That at its very worst, in the not-self in the homogenized world with all of these diseased bodies running around, it still manages somehow to continue to function. They're incredible vehicles.
