Two Pressure Centers: The Root and Head

In Human Design we have two pressure centers. These pressure centers are very, very important. And they’re truly overlooked. That is, the root center and the head center. These are the two pressures.

And, when you’re looking at the circuitry of the BodyGraph—we have talked about the BodyGraph as a map and that if you look in that map there are a number of ways to look at it. You can look at the roads and the tunnels; that is, the personality and the design.

But, the way in which the physical map is laid out, it’s laid out in circuits. And circuits are sub-divided. One of the main aspects of circuitry is the movement of energy through awareness centers.

This pressure that there must be a question out there that can be answered that hasn’t existed yet, that when it gets into the ajna center, the conceptualizing process through the 24th gate, the gate of the Return, is a process of going over and over and over and over and over. In other words, it’s like looking into the empty night and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for that moment that will be different, that moment of mutation, that moment of “aha.”

And in that moment of some kind of unique concept comes the potential of Breakthrough, the 43rd gate, the gate of insight. Now, what’s interesting about this is that if you look at the three gates of the ajna that are pointed down towards the throat, and we’ve already seen that the 17 and the 11 are visual, that what you’re looking at in the individual process, what you’re looking at in all individuality, is all individuality is acoustic.

The logic and the abstract may translate images into language. But the process of the 43 getting to the 23, getting to the gate of Splitting Apart, getting to the gate of explanation to be able to explain what’s new, that movement from the 43 to the 23 isn’t a movement from translating vision into language, it’s transiting inner language into outer language. It’s a real translation.

One of the things to recognize about the uniqueness of that process in the 43/23 is that it makes it often exceedingly difficult for these beings to be understood by others. It is very difficult for them to make sense of themselves to others, and you’ll notice I’m using keynotes of the collective. All they can do is try to explain something that has no reference. It’s why the channel 43/23 is a channel of genius to freak, this channel of Structuring. That something unique, original and mutative needs to be given its structure and be explained. Otherwise, it cannot enter into the collective. And if it cannot enter into the collective, it is a failed mutation.

This is a transcript of A Daily View session, recorded on Saturday & Sunday, March 6 & 7, 2004.
