  • being an embryo in the mother's body: consciousness knows no physical or temporal boundaries, which is why, during the process of self-knowledge through our own consciousness, we can discover the remarkable phenomenon of the beginning of our current physical body; by reliving embryonic development and birth we can understand the very beginnings or our own models of behavior and thinking and, at the highest level, even experience the unified consciousness of the mother and child or the cosmic consciousness (see Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype).
