Ra’s Words of Wisdom
When you look at a human being within the context of Human Design, the first thing that makes Human Design unusual to begin with is this binary calculation, this extremely dualistic mechanical structure, the dual consciousness—Personality consciousness, Design consciousness. Everything about Human Design is dualistic. And the dualism is not dualism in the flat two-dimensional sense, but it really is juxtaposition. In other words, it is the juxtaposing of “this and that” in order to be able to establish a larger whole, a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts.
And wherever you look within Human Design you see the emergence of this, the very construct of what we are. That is, these two databases, 88 degrees of the movement of the Sun apart, are somehow held together in this illusion. They are the juxtaposition that brings about the quantum, the whole that’s greater than the sum of the parts that we call the life. And the way in which the whole inner mechanism of the bodygraph operates is that it operates on this principle. That is, it operates on a quantum principle, it operates on juxtaposition. If you juxtapose activation in the 52 with activation in the 9, viola, all of sudden there it is. The quantum emerges and you have concentration, determination and fixed wiring at a very, very specific, very, very limited way.
Then you can start understanding that the only person who will ever, in a sense, understand your channels is you when you live them as they were intended to be lived, as the foundation upon which you base your life. It goes back to the very simplest teachings of Human Design. When you first introduce a bodygraph to someone, Definition— I must have said it thousands of times, look, you have an activation at one end of the channel and you have an activation at the other end of the channel and what you get out of that is what we call Definition and this is fixed, consistent and reliable. And it is extraordinarily and uniquely you.
You can line up 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 people with this channel, the 59/6, I guarantee you that they’re all different, unless the cards are stacked against me, and there’s great good fortune in twins or something. Even then with most twins rarely have I ever seen anything that escapes the Base. We’re all different. These channels are all different. And we have to be careful about the way in which we look at a channel as some kind of fixed structure that we can simply put a label on. Because we can’t, we only have the generic. What we’re waiting for is the unique, the differentiated.
When you begin to think about what the activations are at either end, when you begin to understand how finite that is, the Base to the Tone to the Color, then you can begin to see that in every Definition you have lurks your uniqueness. This is this absolutely very, very fine instruction in the circuitry and it’s such a powerful platform to stand on. And you can, you can rely on it; you can trust it. It is what you’re about. There is nothing wrong in this being’s desire for intimacy, or the intimate experience. As long as it is operating out of the Authority of being an Emotional Generator, then it’s going to be correct. And it’s going to be productive for this being and it’s going to fulfill what is their potential.
