As the ego boundaries become stronger, we gradually ‘Fall’ into separateness. And at the same time, what you could call a ‘redistribution of energy’ occurs. The energy that used to be left free for perception of the world’s is-ness and radiance is diverted to the ego. The desensitizing mechanism starts to operate, as a way of conserving energy for the ego. As a result, our perceptions become automatic, and the world which was once so full of wonder becomes a shadowy, half-real place. This is the point when, as individuals, we fall asleep, and knowledge fall in sleep, the DNA Helix keeps humankind trapped in the three dimensional world.
